Tun election contest committee in
the Lower Houso of Congress 1ms reported
in favor of Hon. W. 0. Owen,
oftbo Seventh Kentucky
his Beat in Congress.
Hon. Arthur "Wallace, assistant
District Attorney for this district,
will bo married in Louisvillo
Juno 10th to Miss Margaret Taylor
the beautiful daughter of Mr. Han
cock Taylor, tho well known real estate
dealer of that city. Mr. Wallace
has friends all over Kentucky
who will rejoico at his good fortune.
Miss Taylor is & brilliant young
woman and will make tho talented
young lawyer a congenial companion.
Perhaps our genial friend, J. S.
K. Wedding may baro cause to con
gratulate himeelf that he did not accept
the appointment tendered to
him upon the Governor's staff. Tho
following is from tho Louisvillo Pod,
Since the return of the O. A. R. Veteran from
the annual State ltacunipinent, held the first
of this week at Somerset, many stories ha;e
been going around concerning the boisterous ac
tions of members of the Governor's staO, who,
so the story rocs, rnfced the very old Nick In the
early hours of Tuesday, So demonstrative did
they become that the Inmates of the Barker
House nere unable to sleep, and the landlady
w as compelled to threaten thchtlatlous soldiers
with summary ejections unless they quieted
Col. Wedding would have gotten
mighty lonesome in a crowd like that.
Our light weight contemporary
raises a great howl about Tun
comment on Governor Bradley's
too free exercise of the pardoning
power. See what the
Tribune, tho recognized Republican
authority of Kentucky, has to
say on the subject:
It seems to us , without a thorough knowledge
of the reasons In each case, that Go ernor
Is using his executive clemency extremely
liberally in the granting of pardons. In ninety-nine
cases out of a hundred the jury that convict
a man know what It Is about. Anyone who Is at
all familiar with tho criminal proceedure of
this State knows full well that the accused has
all the advantages that the most liberal construction
of the law will allow. Itisin vlewof
these well known facts that we believe that pardoning
power should be cxerched as lightly as
The people of Ohio county will
learn with sincere regret that Dr.
W. Alexander who has long and successfully
managed the interests of
Hartford College will leavo that institution
with the close of this school
year. A contract with tho people of
South Carrollton will plnco Dr.
Alexander at tho head of the College
at that place next year upon terms
which give him assurance of a handsome
income and a successful school.
For years past, no man in Hartford
has been more intimately connected
withthe town'eaiTnirsthnn Dr. Alexander
aud it will be with sincere regret
that our people see him go elsewhere.

It is said the leading whisky dealers
at Owensboro aro hopelessly in debt

is coming which will carry down
with the whisky men some of the

One of the coining events of interest

many important changes will soon

Mn. Heiikh of The
Herald's editorial staff, has been
ill nt his homo hero for a week past.
Mr. Felix .has been nbsent from tho
office and affairs havo somewhat
been allowed to fall into tho hands of
tho boys. If anybody don't like tho
tono of nnything found herein then
ho must hunt up tho boss editor who
is largely responsible. The present
crowd nro frco silver, Jeflcrsonian
Democrats of Ohio county nnd cling
to tho faith that has been a tenet of
the party nlways. They want to
sco the country prosperous ami everybody
happy except tho Repulic
ans, who nro never happy except
when thoy nro plundering tho farm
crs with unjust and oppressive tnriff
taxes. They want to seo everybody
who intends to voto tho Democratic
ticket take part in the coming con
vcntion nnd they want their views
at that convention. They wnnt
some good Democrat to tako G rover
Cleveland's place when he goes out
and thoy want Kentucky to get
back to tho placosho ought to fill in
tho Democratic column. Aud nil
this they not only hopo for but earnestly
expect. And The Herald
bovs will bo happy when it's done
that way.
Whatever the decision of Saturday's
convention ou tho money question,'
let that decisionbo acquiesced
in by every honest Democrat. No
man in the minority in n parly
meeting need surrender his personal
convictions, but he does owo it to his
honor nnd to tho cau3c of party or
ganization nnd good government to
subject his views to those of a major'
ity of his party in so far as it effects
tho conduct of tho pending campaign.
Let there be no sulking, for
no man who sulks is worthy the
name of Democrat, but let all of us
remember that there are more important
matters depeuding upon
Democracy than tho settlement of
the financial question, nnd he is a
very poor Democrat who makes
either view of that matter tho final
test of his party allegiance. Let
there bo no bitterness, no wrangling.
Let us meet as becomes good Democrats
nnd good citizens nnd when the
majority has spoken let its utterance
be binding upon U3 all in die party
fight which lies before us. In this
spirit we may fight together and will
win. Anything else is suicidal folly.
Let thero be no kickers and none of
that monly tribe called bolters. And
there will be none.
Tho man who deliberately stays
at home when important matters ef
fecting the vital interest of his neighbors,
his party, his country aud
himself are upon him lor his consideration
and attention, ought uot to
complain when things political do
not go his way. In Democratic
councils every Democrat has equal
voice with every other, and he is
less than a good party mnu, if in
fact ho is as much as a good citizen,
who refuses at tho call of his party
to tako part in the arbitrament of
matters of public and party concern.
Such a man does not fulfill the highest
duty enjoined upon a good citizen.
Let there be no such in tho ranks
of the Democratic party in this
county. Let the men who nro Democrats
tnke part in Democratic
eratious. Thoy will do the party
and tho country such Eervico by this
means as will be creditable alike to
their party allegiance and their good
citizenship. Being Democrats they
will of course yield to the will of
tho majority of their party, but they
should uot hesitate to mako known
in party meetings their own views
upon party questions.
Let the good Democrats of Ohio
county attend tho convention hero
on Saturday next.
Saturday next will witness the
coming together in Hartford of tho
representatives of tho Democratic
party in this county. How many of
theso men will bo here, cannot nt
this timo bo estimated. Tho number
who attend tho convention will
depend largely upon tho conditions
surrounding tho farmers of the
as to weather, crops, etc. Wo nro
not given to criticising thoso in authority,
nor do wo do so now, but wo
do eny to our farmer friends that tho
innss convention, whilo the most ill-convenient
for them may still bo mado
to represent their viows nud ought to
bo made to do so.
Thero is practically but one question
to be determined by tho approaching
convention nud that is
whether or not tho Democrats ofi
Ohio county desire to endorse tho
present financial system of this country
which is based upon a singlo gold
standard, While it may bo said
this is not a pnrty question, and in
many aspects it is not, yet whilo tho
solutions of it docs not go to tho
basic principle of cither politjcal
party, it is an intensely practical
question that is pressing upon the
! country for solution and political!

of doubt. It is tho moro important
thcrcforo that tho farming community
who nro first of nil tho sufferers
from n bad currency system, should
ovcrcomo tho difficulties that may
surround them nnd attend tho com
ing convention. Tho facts aro that
under tho operation of tho singlo
gold standard tho business of this
country has conio to a point of unparalleled
stagnation. Business men
all over tho country nro ruined and
farmers aro selling their products nt

The per capita circulation of the
country has declined moro than

Good Suggestions by a True Democrat.
McHnxnv. Kv., May 23, 1890,
Tho situation in which the Democrats
of Kentucky find themselves on the evo
of a national election should bo squarely
faced and understood. Wo have eleven
members of Congress and tho Presiden
tial electors to elect in November
against tho Republicans nnd it will
harmony and a thorough organiza
tion and good leadership. Tho distinction
between leaders and bosses is not
misunderstood by tho people The
party can never bo confident of its con
trol of tho Stato unless it bus the leader-
ship of men of convictions, interested
moro in the integrity of tho party and
its consistency with its principles than
in spoils, trading and straddling aro
not wanted nor aro bosses who subor
itinato party principles to their own
ideas of expediency. If tho Democrat
io party expects to recover Kentucky
permanently it mnst mako a campaign
on straight Democratic lines, and if it
wants to oxposo the vidians of tho pros
cnt Stato administration with which
every decent citizen is disgusted, it will
bo necessary for all to nnito on tho
positive principles of Democracy. Tho
party needs at the front earnest Demo
crats with their party's interest and not
personal interest at heart,
Democrats young aud old in har
mony with tho national platforms
and Stato policies of tho party,
able to take tho stump and aid in educating
tho voters on Democratio lines,
men for leaders who aro ablo to lead
and not to dictate; tho woods aro full
of them. Victory is important this
year, but is no moro important than to
know what Kentucky Democracy
stands lor and the peoplo will havo a
right to demand at tho hands of tho
representatives of tho party a positivo
and uncquivical statement of its principles.
Democratic candidates and stump
speakers must stand sqnarcly on tho
national platform and delegates to tho
Stato Convention must bo instructed by
tho county mass conventions and it tho
party is wiso it will givo us a clear cut
Stato platform that places overy issuo,
such a platform as wo had in1884,18S0
and in 1892. Theso wcro Bimetallic plat
forms. Tho standard money by which
all values aro measured and estimated
shall bo mado and coined from both
silver and gold at tho historic ratio of
10 to 1 without limit or discrimination
against cither. Tho question of the
coming political campaign will bo tho
question of standard monoy, and to
a plan to get rid of tho money
stringency and hard times, nnd to get
a proper cstimato of all our commodi
ties, nnd when this is douo as it can bo
by coining absolute money of both gold
and bilver instead of gold alone, producers
can obtain for their products
sufllciont quantities of monoy to live,
pay their debts, employ nud pntronizo
their neighbors, and thus rovivo business
nud restore prosperity. This is what
is understood to bo bimetallism, and tho
question in tho approaching campaign
is that of standards of valuo and that is
tho question upon which tho battlo will
bo fongbfnud overy voter must tako
his choico between tho singlo gold
btnndard on tho ono hnnd or tho doublo
bimetallic standard on tho other. Tho
Democratio party as tho real paity of
tho peoplo lean wait to get for instructions
from committees and conventions,
thcrcforo ovory Democrat in this
county should bo out on tho 30th, just
to attend tho county convention nnd
tako steps in organizing tho county
Democracy in securing nn honest and
faithful expression of their viows on
tho coming issues and proposo plans
for a Stato platform aud to elect dele

IMcts About Steel Until.
Among tho industries which nppeal
for more protection to keep them out of
tho poorhouso is tho iron nnd steel monopoly,
says tho Kansas City Times. A
slight examination of tho facts, howev
er, rovcali u of ntTairs quite iucoii
sistcnt with tho cry for help.
This combluo includes practically nil
tho iron nnd steel works iu the country,
and it fixes prices absolutely. Just now
it Is beiug severely denounced for rais
ing prices outrageously in tho faco of
tho fact that tho cost of raw materia,
pig iron, has decreased 25 per cent sinco
last September.
The greed of tho monopoly cems to
havo alarmed tho other protectionists
for Tho Iron Ago urges ft to bo reasonable
becauso "thero nro consideration
involved of n much higher order thau
tho moro temporary advantages secured
by adhering to prices that can only
causo irritation."
An idea of what theso "prices that
can only cause irritation" nro can bo
formed by comparing them with thoso
of England. Over there tho cost of tho
steel billet is $20. 03 a ton nnd tho manufactured
steel rails nro sold at $23.03.
In America tho cost of tho billets is
17 and tho rails nro sold nt $28 -that
is, whilo tho American monopoly gets
its material $3. 05 n ton cheaper than
tho Englishmen, it sells its product
nearly 3 higher.
It is generally calculated that tho
finished rails can bo produced nt n cost
of $2 n ton over tho cost of tho billet.
Tho English manufacturers sell rail
at $2. 43 over tho cost of tho billets, bnt
tho poor Amcrionn has to sell at if 11
moro thou tho cost of billets. Tho English
manufacturer it content to realize n
profit of 43 cents n ton whilo tho
American must havo moro protection
whilo ho is making $9 n tout
Tho hypocrisy of tho protected iron
and steel monopoly is more patent whin
it is considered that tho combiuo
$28 n ton for rails in America
nnd yet recently sent 10,000 tons to
Japan at $21.25. They aclually undersold
tho Englishmen, who had to cliargo
$23 to mako 43 cents. And it is from
theso Englishmen that tho monopoly
wants protection I
Steel rails aro only ono of tho com
modities on which tho monopoly is put
ting monopolistic prices. Tho prices of
nails havo been raised 200 percent sinco
last May. Aud in spitoof tho indignant
proteiH of tho hardware merchants tho
monopoly has ordered now prices for
this month that will mako tho raiso 200
per cent to 228 per cent.
The merchants may well protest, for
nails havo constantly been exported
from this country in largo quantities.
Last month, for instance, tho exports
wcro nt tho rato of 30,000,000 pounds
a year.
The truth is that tho steel rail industry
aud tho nail manufacture aro not
"infant industries." They nro full
grown nnd can hold their own against
all comers. They can even go abroad
nud tako tho trado of Japan uway from
tho English in spito of tho distance.
They can even, as Andrew Carnegie
himself boasts, competo with tho English
manufactures iu tho English market.
Theso industries nro not content with
tho immenso profit of their natural advantages.
Even tho immenso profits under
tho liberal duties of tho Wilson act
do not satisfy them. They want high
protection. Yet oven whilo crying for
help they control prices at will. Tho
truth is they wnnt protection for their
trust. They want protection that would
mablethem to rob thoicoplo even more
outrageously. Bat just now it seems
likely that tho peoplo want a littlo protection
for themselves.

method of getting rid of tho pest; but,
although this liberal otlVr led to tho if.
eclpt of no fewer than 2,000 schemes
from nil parts of tho world, nnito of
them was regarded as satisfactory, and
tho oiler was jvithdrawn. Tho domestic
cat was introduced, and iu certain limited
areas did much sendee. Poisons
wcro largely resorted to, nnd ferrets,
stoats nnd wenwls have ix-en imported
in thousands into somo of tho colonies
nud have increased fast. But hitherto
tho rabbits, owing to the rato at whiiHt
they multiply, havo mnunged hot only
to hold tholr own, but to constantly
spread over new grouud, carrying destruction
with them wherever they go.
In South Australia, for instance, tho
direct loss from tho rabbits has been pnt
down nt 250,000 per annum nnd tho
indirect loss nt n similar amount. Iu
Victoria tho netivo operations for tho
destruction of rabbits on crown lauds
havo been carried on by tho government
sinco 1S80, nnd from that dato to tho
middle i f 1801 it total of nearly 300,-000
b.id bien spent by tho stato on that
object. As for tho money spent by pri
vate individuals for tho samo purpose',
that is almost incalculable, but it imy
bo mentioned that on cue estuto ul.nio
upward of 15,000 havo been expended
by tho iauii r, with I ho lew of clearing
his laud of tho pest.
In tho 17 years ending with 1S03
nearly OS.000,000 rabbit skins, valued
nt JC 102,000, wero exported from Victoria,
without counting tho largo quantities
used by hat manufacturers iu tho
colony, ouo ostnbllthmeut oli.no using
37 1,-100 every year. Vet, notwithstanding
nil this slaughter, tho present infested
nrtii throughout tho colony is estimated
by tho chief inspector at no less
than 37,750,000 nares. Adding to the
direct expenditure tho depreciations of
tho grazing values of the laud, tho loss
to tlio colonies concerned amount to
millions of pounds sterling.
Tho final outcome of royal commissions,
of international conferences nud
of tho testing of every practical method
of extermination, Is that tho most
method of dealing with the evil is
found to bo tho construction of rabbit
proof mtting, by means of which tho

Tho length cf somo of theso fences is

on tho Queensland border, and
following tho main trunk lino from
Bonrko to Cornwn, n distance of -107
miles, und there is another along the

Queensland government, too, has erected
n similar ftneo along a considerable
portion of tho northern boundary of

themselves in Queensland ns
This, of course, is tho weak ioiut in
regard to fences which nro llablo to
break down in places, moro especially
in times of Hood nud where they cross
over creeks, whilo the keeping of constant
suprvislon over tho fences, so that
immediate repairs can lw dono whero

authorities in tho colonics think
that if it hhould bo followed up tho result

of gt tting rid of them. On tho

Notwithstanding its lmrity, however,
tho exportation of American wheat to

is found in the duties which havo len

of protection in Iiurocun continental

by protection In this eountr.
