and Morguufleld Itallro&d
A company could be organized
tinder this charter and proceed to work
Calhoon Is as much Interested In the
building of the road us Halt ford, and
we have no doubt that, If assured of a
hearty co-operation In the matter by
the latter nlnee, would tako a Hvelv
interest in its construction.
Tho expenses of building such a road
would not be very great, much of the
material being on the ground over
which It would pass. Tho road would

charter contemplates the cxtentlon of
tho road to Shawneetowu, thus making
perfect connection with St. Louis,
and the West ; extend on the other
end to Heaver Dam, It would assume
all the proportions of a truuk Hue from
Newport News to San Frunclsco, and
thus become 0110 of tho most Important
lines In tho Union.
It is Just what Calhoon ami Hartford
liLcd. The business men of both places
should meet in consultation, and push
the mutter at once. It Is nearly a direct
line from Hartford by Tichenor's
Station to Calhoon, and on to Morgan-Held,
the sume line would almost
touch Sliawneetown and St. Louis,
and be near enough to a straight Hue
for all practical purposes. Calhoon
would take stock in such a road,
it Is absolutely feasible, and
would beyond any ueradventtire pay
largely for an investment in it. Tho
promoters of this enterpriso should Impress
ou tho peoplo that this is no
short line of fictitious valuation, but on
the contrary, the elements of a great
railroad are here just within the reach
of both tho county seats, and It Is bor
dering almost ou folly to let them Ho
dormant any longer.

That thero are many and weighty
reasons why tho constitution of Kentucky
should bo changed Is admitted
by all, and that a large majority of
those voting have signified suoh a wish
s proved by the returns from the elections
held for this purpose biennially
for eight years. Tho reason of tho failure
has been on account of the seemingly
Iron-bound provisions inserted by
tho framers of the constitution expressed
In brief as follows: That when
experience shall point out the necessity
of amending tho constitution, and
when tho legislature has placed the
question before thu people, "It shall be
the duty of tho several sheriffs and
officers of election, at the next general
election which shall bo held for representatives
In tho next general assembly
after the passage of such a law, to
open a poll for, and rnako a return to
tho secretary of state, tor the time be-lug
of the names of all those entitled to
vote for representatives who have voted
for calling a convention, and If thereupon
It shall appear that a majority of
the citizens of the state entitled to vote
for representative have voted for calling
a convention, etc."
Heretofore the problem has been to
jnduce a "majority of those entitled to
yote for representatives," 1. c, accord
ing to tho assessor's book, to vote at
all, and It Is a well-known fact that
thero has not been a mulorlty as thus
found, who have voted In any election
for years. Thero was only one way to
overcome this "silent majority," and
this has been In the present bill. The
constitution does not specify how a
"ranjorlty of all thoso entitled to vote"
shall bo ascertained. The bill now under
consideration provides that the
number shall be ascertained from thof e
actually voting, from the names made
known to tho officers by evidence on
election day, and from those whom the
officers actually know to be voters, but
who do not vote. The addition of these
constitutes by legislative enactment
the legal votes, aud if a majority of
those vote for tho convention it shall
Some Interesting Fact Concerning
On the first of Jauuary, 1887, there
were in force in the United States
about 2125,000 patenU having from a
few days to seventeen years to run.
At that date about 110,000 patents
had expired by limitation. No patent
now runs for more than seventeen
years. At the present time a little
more than 1,000 patents expire each
month, and not far from 1,800 new
ones are Issued.
It is a low estimate of the value of
patents to average them at $3,000, or
say $700,000,000 for the patents now in
existence. The patents for telegraphs,
telephones aud electric lights are capitalized
at nearly a third of that sum.
It then appears that the average value
of patents is greater than that of
separate buildings of real estate which
has been estimated at about SI, COO.
The working force of the Patent office
numbers about 600 persons, graded
from the commissioner at $4,600 per
year to laborers at $360.
The last receipts of the office, from
fees and sales of copies, etc., amount to
about $4,000 for each working day,
Applications for patents average at
the present time nearly 3.600 per
month; grant of patents about two
thirds as many.
As a general rule every patentable
improvement will more than repay the
small cost of taking out tbe patent,
however the extent of profit frequent
ly depends upou the business, capacity
of the inventor, or bis agent. One
man, by his activity, will make a for
tune from an unpromising improve'
incut, while another possessing a bril
liant Invention will realize little or
nothing, owing to Incompetence.
In an official report a chief examiner
of the Patent office says : "A patent. If
It Is worth anything, when properly
managed, Is worth nud can easily be sold
for from "ten to fifty thousand dollars."
These remarks only apply to patents of
ordluary or minor value. They do not
includo such as tbe telegraph, electric
and rubber patents which are worth
Tho following are a few cases of the
first kind which will better illustrate
ray meaning: A man obtained a patent
for a straw cutter, took n model of
his invention through tbe Western
States, and after a tour of eight months
returned with forty thousand dollars
cash, or Its equivalent. Another Inventor
obtained a patent for a simple
wire spring, now In general use for
holding chimneys on lamps, from proceeds
of which a fortune Is realized
Minor contrivances of less universal
need, are still in many cases of great
worth, and are notable Instances of
tho extraordinary value of simple Inventions.
Another example right at our own
doors Is seen In the famous Eureka
Plaiting machine. This is a simple device
patented by Woodruff Bros, of St.
Charles, Ky., for making all kinds of
dress trimming and ornamental dresa
decorations, and might have been
thought of by a ochool boy fifty years
ago, only It was not.
The Messrs. Woodruff have already
made many valuable sales of
State rights ou their patent which is
ouly in its first year of existence.
Many of our bost citizens have bought
territory on this invention, and Its
sales aro dally increasing.
This is an ordinary case of a minor
Invention embracing no very considerable
Inveutive powers. Experience
shows that the most profitable patents
are those which contain very little
real Invention, aud are to a superficial
observer of little value.

A SHARF REPLY.
Suggs Gives "Stalwart" a Touch of his
Caustic pen, and Defends his Honored
Party From the Attacks
of a Slanderer.
Owing to the great popularity and
unlimited circulation of tho Kentucky
Progress, its choice clippings and little
silly twaddle does not get noised about
much. Henco, it was by tho merest
accident that my attention was called
to a scurrilous article, which appeared
In Its overburtbened columns recently.
The article In question, purports to have
been written In Itockport by a double-
mg under the cognomen of "Stalwart."
I regard tbe pretense that It broke loose
in iiocKport, as lor more uaraagiug tuau
I beneficial to tbe "Evening Squawker"
tho long felt want, as it trespasses up
on a high sense of honor and editorial
character. But, it is no difference to
me where it was written, only an Im
position like I believe this, should be
He starts In with a desperate game,
and flattens out, at the end, In Ignominious
failure. His object Is to parry
tbe force of a few figures and facts offered
to the readers of tbe Hkiiai.d by
your correspondent and be only
succeeds In proving his utter inability
to handle such questions, which
perhaps nothing better illustrates than
the ignorant confounding of King
Phillips' goods with the God. Like tht
Bervlle henchman that he Is, he apes
Bradley's questionable methods of re
sort-to fraud and frenzy, raut and rot
making no attempt at urgument, offering
no .figures, no authentic facts, In
deed nothing but cheap assertions aud
bombastlo assumptions which has char
acterized tbe reckless and desperate
canvass all over the State.
This pretentious and swaggeriug page
of a man, who recently was disgraced
as no candidate for gubernatorial hon
ors In Kentucky, was ever disgraced
before, with a spasmodic jerk, uncorked
his slop and besllmed his readers, first
with a base Insinuation, tbe enormity
of which none but those who know
my age and history can realize. "Unreconstructed
Rebel," an old decayed
and stinking stiff, that was thought to
bo smart, when hurled by England at
the colonies, but, which has been
hawked about by cranks and fools, till
no self-respecting gentleman handles it
even with bis cane, aud its being so utterly
Inapplicable to me turns whatever
force it even had, Into stench,
(you understand, I have smelling salts
at my elbow now.)
But; Stalwart was foaming and reek
ing with a spasm of patriotic afflatus,
(perhaps the cliolic,) and he must disgorge
or "bust" wide open. So like a
maddened dog, be seizes a piece of tbe
old soiled, tattered, ensanguined shirt
between his teeth, and rears back upon
bowls himself hoarse.
What he really needs, is an old fashioned
boot-Jack hurled at tho back window
at the speed of 360 revolution to
the minute, which would take him
about the seventh rib. This is about
tbe only argument that can ever reach
bis littlo brain. He says, I'm "deflued

may bo excused tor pausing to Jot It

braggart dance upon the volcauo beneath

Stalwart, can't you lick your chops,
and try your hand on eomethlug more

that, you pewter-eyed pelican, and then

He asks, aud be Intends this to be a
crusher, "Why don't Buckner meet
Bradley?" Well, now really, my pompous
contemporary, there are several
reasons; but some of them Involve thoso
.finer Instincts of the truo gentleman,
which you could not comprehend, besides
it Is not my business to enlighten
you, Just now I'm neither teaching oysters
to climb trees, nor tadpoles to
speak French. But I will suggest in
this connection, that your Impotent
chuckle that Buckner, (he Incaruatlou
of superb courage, Is ufraid to meet
Bradley, sounds very ridiculous to one
who knows that Buckner has bad a
standing Invitation to Bradley to meet
him tin debate, aud what is far more,
(baton the very day you were blurtlug
that supposed terrible question, Uen.
Buckner had Bradley arraigned before
a Jury of 000, and convicted him ofa
vile and Infamous slander unworthy of
tbe lowest political tramp. There he sat,
self-condemned before 600 people writhing
beneath tbo eagle eye of a grand
old cbivalrlo gentlemun, as be denounced
blm in unbounded, but not angered,
scorn, as unworthy of the notice of the
true gentleman. My little bone button
polltloian, luform yourself of that day's
doings at Grayson, not forgetting to no
tlce Jim Jone's card, which nails tho
He droct to your great soulful
statesman Bradley, who was
ihgtuood as a contemptible political
huckster, and then come to me and re-
vamp that old stereotyped and foolish
queetlon.aud I will tell you somo more.
JIu the meantime, remember, that Buck'
ner told Bradley that "for a man who
could wilfully circulate so vile a slander,
I can have nothing but contempt,"
and remember that when you circulate
the Infamoui slander, that Knott wrote
Buckuer's Lexington speech, that
every truo Democrat and gentleman
with infinite scorn feels that all that
should be said, Is that he who Is guilty
of wilfully chculatiugso vile a slander,
deserves nothing but contempt. The
idea that so distinguished a scholar,
geutlemau, and soldier usBuckuer,who
has successfully edited two great newspapers,
being reduced to the necessity of
purloining Knott's thoughts, and palming
them off us his own, and of
around In dread of such a wind-bag
us Ananias Bradley, smacks of declaration,
as well as proves to what extremity
a hopeless and reckless party Is
As for Knott, he has n national rep
utation established upou tbe bedrock
basis of merit, where such cattle as
Stalwart ran neither break through, nor
steal, and his littlo feeble wheezy attempt,
is as lnsano as It is Idiotic aud
about as effective hs the fool who
stormed Gibraltar with paper wads.
Stalwart, since you are so utterly lack
ing In al! the arts,and elements of
let me beseech you not to make
so egregious an ass of yourself by tack
ling tbo character and reputation of
such men as J. Proctor Knott, who Is
known as far as the English tongue Is
known. Confine yourself to something
cheap. So for Instance, some
cripple, who is muzzled, where
you might stand some show of success.
Your little toad airs before tbe bulls of
tbe land, are supremely ridiculous, be
sides I'm afraid that you, like that little
toad will burst, aud then it would cost
the authorities a quarter to have you
swept up aud toated off. As to your so-called
bitter tight of Democrats against
"Negro Equality," It is unlucky Indeed,
that you have sprung this question.
True, you must have the negro vote by
hook or crook, or go down beneath tbe
tidal wave of 170 thousand majority,
but It Is an unlucky time to Haunt your
hypocrisy to blind the poor negro,
whom you have never yet given any
thing, but the treacherous grip of a
Jacob. Recently an immense and Indignant
mass-convention of colored
people was held at oueof thelrcburches
In New York City to protest against
the exclusion of their race from a pop
ular pari: on account or color and race
prejudice. Rev. Mr. Monroe, a distinguished
colored minister, addressed the
meeting. Now, If you ever read anything,
which I very much doubt, go
read that remarkable speech, and see
for once, that your hypocrisy will serve
you no longer; that your whining cant
and mock religious pretenses can no
longer disguise, that at last even a
sees through your polished shell,
and beholds you in all your treacherous
deformity, that radical tyrant and
devilish eugeuuity, so superbly booted
and spurred,can no longer ride a downtrodden
race, unfed und unstalled.
One striking sentence In that speech
will open a flood of light to every
in this broad land. Said he, "The
Southern people are more honest iu
their relation with tho negro, than the
Northern, for they druw the color lino
and make no pretense of doing otherwise,
while the North glosses their hate
of the negro over with religious sentiment
and hypocritical philanthropy."
I say read that speech, and stand and
have your Infernal hypocrisy rammed
down your polluted throat, just as those
whining, supercilious, long-faced and
eternally actlous, Puritans of the
North had to stand and have it rammed
down their throats. Base white
stuff's a negro with the Idea
that you love him and long to welcome
hira to tho sacred circle of the family
altar, that he was born your equal in
every sense,aud that he should have the
freest social as well as political rights,
and that you long to meet blm on tbe
threshold of your parlor door towel-come
blm in nil for nothing but to get
bis vote. I would not carry that black,
festering spot of hyprocrloy upon my
soul for the franchise of every human
being ou this globe, and If the devil
don't mako fodder of you, it will be
because bis sutauio majesty Is a little
cholco of proveuder. My colored
friends, a Democrat neither hates you
nor oppresses you. He is prejudiced
against your color, but be patient and
observe this social barrier. You have
been raised with him, often nursed him
aud played with him. There Is a tender
spot away down In the core of his
noble heart that wishes you well, and
delights to see you prosper, loves to see
your churches and schools flourish. He
Is your real friend, who has au abiding
Interest In you In spite of your vote. It
Is ho that would not abridge one of
your religious or political rights aud It
Is to his disinterested noble chaiaoter,
you must trust your interest. That he
rears a social barrier mountain high,
Is no sacrifice to you so long as he concedes
to any political right bo himself
But, Mr. Stalwart, thou great metaphorical
man-eater, who stalkest up
and down the earth rasping Democrats
up the spine, is thero anything else beside

If you had addressed yourself to refuting
my facts and figures with like
official mutorlal, you better might have
risen to (he dignity of being worthy of

with the strut and swagger of a bully
will not avail you, As to my connection
with the IIkuai.I), let me modestly
suggest that when its management get

they will open uegotladon with you
and perhaps put you upon a handsome

wauts. I've seen PIneVllle speeches,
aud many others, as well, but what I'm
after, is the proof that Buckner "twist-ed,

He says be was at the State Republican
Convention and knows what, I, not being
there, could not know. Now, right
here, let us pause and think. You were
at the convention, aud you are also
from Rockport who went from here to

Job of dissembling for sheer want

prim, precise, pompous and prayerful
William Milligan, who to rope In tbe
unwary Prohibitionist and the religiously

and adjusts his mouth Just for tbe
world as if be were walking a taut rope
one hundred feet high. There was a

Immaculate William did not Wear this

Milligan conclude. Bucket to It, my
hearties. Live and learn, you'll get

This indiscreet husband had toyed
with the heels of a sportive mule.
The result was, that ho sat down In his
misery wl(h bis face torn all to pieces,
when his hopeful wife cousollngly said,
"Old man, you look mjghty bad now,
and probably will never boas purty as
you was, but I believe you will have a
heap more sense."
Whether or not I mlsrepesented tbe
Republicans in their treatment of the
in the Louisville Convention, Is a
question I decllnetosubmltto littlo one-horse,
narrow, gauged 8x10 politicians.
Of course tbe reader understood that I
did not mean to say they were literally,
actually kicked out, but politically, virtually
or figuratively kicked out. And
as to tbejusticn and truthfulness or this
charge, I stibmlt it to all Informed of
the proceedings of that convention, and
I call in as evidence the speech of a
colored delegate made on tbe floor,
half-pleading half-threatening aud altogether
11 protest and warning, and (he
effort of another delegate to have bis
race represented at least on tbe committee
on resolutions, which poor and
empty honor was denied him, and I
ask what means, this widespread dissatisfaction
throughout the State, and
the threats of Independent organization,
which threats have. In more instances
than oue, been folio wed by open revolt?
In the light of these well-known facts,
Stalwart's vigorous denial dies out Into
