Tuesday Morning, - - Juno 27, 1882
The Superior Court Primaries.
-So far ns wo havo been able to learn
tho-instructions for Superior Judge
arc as follows:
Pl&rA Richards, Louisvillo and Jef
ferson county, 70; Madison, 10; IJut
litt, I; Henry. !; Oldham, 2; Car
roll, 7, Nelson, 9; Trimble, C; Green,
3; Spencer, I; Shelby, 0; La Ruo, C.
Total, 132.
For Runlett, Lincoln, 4; Rockcas
tle, -J; Garrard, Cj Boylo, C; Henry, 1;
Washington, 7; Taylor, 4. -Total, 32.
For Duvall, Lincoln, 4; Marion, 8;
Woodford, Cj Franklin, 9; Henry, 2;
Oldham, 3. Total, 32J.
This shows Mnj. Richards to havo
an instructed voto of more than enough
to;eIect him on the first ballot, and of
coiine tho Danville Convention will
be but a stupid affair.
Mr. Rurdett made a gallant fight
and deserved a better fate, but Maj.
Richards was backed by an unseen yet
powerful hand, nnd tho result was as
wo have all along expected. Judge
Alvin Duvall was no doubt tho best
qualified man for tho position, but ho
failed to make an activa canvass, be
sides it was charged that ho was too
old to discharge tho duties of the of
fice. The prospectivo nominee is a
bright young man, well read in tho
law, ami will do his level best to make
a trood iudco and we havn't a doubt
but what he will succeed.
Oscar Tuimr.n has announced him
self for re-election to Congress and
says: "If any neeetsily for united
action of tho democratic party should
arise, or if tho democratic party should
thiuk it advisable, I will cheerfully
submit to a primary election to bo held
at the various precincts at the August
election when every democrat can,
without inconvenience, express his
choice forarcpresentative to Congress."
Oscar, of courae, will judge of tho
necessity himself, and will do liko he
did before, go it on an independent
ticket if he sees his own party is liko
ly to cliooso a more consistent leader,
which wo hope it will decido to do.
Gov. Blackburn confessed to Bro.
Barnes and straightway went and
signed pardons lot three Estill county
scamps under ten years sentence each
forntpc, for which they had been but
recently convicted. The same day
tho Court of Appeals reversed three
murder casus in which the accused
had been sentenced to terms in the
penitentiary from 15 years to n life
time. Thus is justice thwarted and
more argument established in favor of
mob law We would suggest to the
mohj however, that they begin work
at the fountain head.
Tin: Apoldic Times is grieved
over tho fact that Mr. Barnes has
spoken of Mary, who chose that bet
ter part that could never bo taken
from her, as a alut, yea, a dirty old
slut. This was a littlo rough in
speaking about a lady and Mr. Barnes
owes her and her numerous friends an
apology; Space in this paper is al
ways ' at hk command, as has been
abundantly proven, either to praise
the governor or to lecture tho editor,
and wo hopo he will make tho amende
honorable to Miss Mary.
Joe Blackburn is evidently of the
opinion that there is more in W. U.
Owens' candidacy against him for
Congreee than is generally belioved,
lor he has deserted his post at Wash
ington to repair his fences at home,
Ho spoke yesterday at Owen ton, the
home of one of tho contestants, Jere
Lilian!, and last night at New Liber
ty. If Joseph can do any good for
the party at Washington, he had bet
ter go back. Wo'll guarantee his re
election by a vote more than of both
of his competitors.
Tin: statement is going tho rounds
of the press that the Court of Appeals
had confirmed tho decisions in the ca
ses of Neal and Craft couvicted and
sentenced to death for raping nnd
murdering the Gibbons children at
Ashland, hut it is authoritatively de
nied. 'A portion of tho Court has
been too busy attendiug to political
aflairs to perform tho business for
which he was elected and it may be
months yet, as vocation is near at
hand, before the cases are reached.
Senator Wade IIamiton has
tired of public life and wants to retire
so as to spend the evening of his days
in peace und quiet. lie has publish

An exchange says that the sum
($100,000,000) appropriated by Con
gress for pensions last week, is greater
by (2,000,000 than tho amount
which will le required during tho cur
rent fiscal year to pay tho interest on
tho Federal debt, and this is hut tho
entering wedge. Thcro is no nation on
tho earth, however rich or prosperous
it may be, which can tako so large a
yearly sum from tho earnings of indus
try without gravorisk and without to
rious apprehension. Tho Republican
majority in Congress havo evidently
mado up their minds to do two things;
To spend tho surplus money in tho
Treasury, and to maintain ths present
grinding rato of taxation. They nro
running a pcaco establishment tipona
war footing. Tho end of such folly it
is very easy to predict: thero will bo
another season of panic and business
distress. Prosperity, oven in this fa
vored land, cannot keep paco with
such profligacy.
The Bronston scandal was tho oc

Transcript published the scandal and
the jYcia didn't, but expressed itself

Tho Transcript retorted that the Neics

TnBNew York Commercial and Ft
nancial Clironicle talks sensibly when
it remarks, "What a marvelous short
sighted, thing it is for a legislator to
have as his rule of action hostility to
banks fettering tho crowth of tho
only department of business which
overy single merchant and business
man in tho whole country is person
ally interested in having free and
calling such a policy popular! His
mistako evidently arises in supposing
these questions nre chiefly of inter
est to banks, whereas the capital which
bank officers hold at tho people's ser
vice to day, can and will find employ
ment to-morrow elsewhere, if its free
dom or its profit is taken away."
The republicans in the Seventeenth
Ohio District, tho ono that Private
Dalzell aspired to represent, nre hav
ing o mo trouble in selecting a can
didate. The Private waa dropped ear
ly in the action but after three days
balloting, during which 37G wero ta
ken, the Convention was no nearer a
decision than at first and it adjourned
in disgust. UpdegrafT, the present
member and leading candidate, seems
to havo been spending his shekels
freely among the delegates nnd on the
testimony of one or more, a commit
tee of investigation was ordered.
The first annual meeting of the
Kentucky Bar Association, which was
held in Louisville last week, was at
tended by representative men from
all parts of the State, and was a de
cidedly pleasant and profitable occa
sion. A number of able speeches
were made on questions of present im
portance, and the result can be but
beneficial to tho fraternity. A sump
tuous banquet at the Gait House was
one of the features of the occasion.
Next year tho meeting will again be
held in Louisville, tho time to be here
after fixed by the Committee.
A Cincinnati paper that can hard

The Louiavlllo Commercial admits
that it doe, not advocate mixed schools
