Wol-ford in joint debate at 1 lardy ville, Hnrt county, and Pinley's speech wan so coarse and vulvar and so abounded in oaths, tha. nil the ladles in the audience went home in the midst of his ravings. His attack upon Cleveland and Carlisle was beyond the bounds of reason, and unfit for publication. He got so mad finally with Wolford that ho told him to go to hell, but the general grinned and licked out his tongue in that comical manner peculiarly his own, and drawled out, "No, I believe I'll go to Congress instead." If the half told of Finley's speech is true, and we have no reason to doubt it, ho is so disgustingly low nnd vulgar as to place himself outeide of the consideration of decent people. ' The advantages of the protective tariff system is entirely in favor of the capitalist, and against the laboring man. Take for instanco the case of Carnegie, the Scotchman, who is clearing a million nnd a half a year tinder it. He has 4,000 employes whose aggregate wages are less by $100,000 than his profits. They average probably n dollar a day, while ho receives $.".72 each minute and $4,120 So each day of ten hours the year round. "Will the laboring men vote to continue a system which increases the price of everything they have to buy and enriches the favored few at the expense of the many ? Altiiouoh the republican majority in Vermont fell short of their estimated majority by 10,000, with practically no democratic opposition, they are crowing like they had achieved a great victory. It would bo fully as foolish for the democrats to crow over carrying Kentucky as for the rads to do so over Vermont, which has never gone democratic since 1820, when the democratic candidate was the only man running. Col. spent an hour or two at Paris Monday lauding the g. o. p. and abusirg the democratic party, but when Mr. Hallam, of Covington, got through with him, it is said he wasso rattled that in his o0 minutes rejoinder ho could hardly speak. The colonel ought to give up the scuttled old ship and let her go Gov. McCueaky's speech on the Retaliating Bill was a splendid exposition of tho question, which elicited not only much applause but brought him a bushel basket full of beautiful flowers four feet tall from his fair auditors. The floral tribute was afterwards expressed to Mrs. McCreary at Richmond. Ix common with the, outside world, who read the papers of that city, we aro glad that the Owensboro municipal election is over, even if Mayor Joe Leo was reelected by 17 over Urey Woodson's preference. The editor made a gallant fight, though, and for nearly a month shot it to him right and left. In 12 States which have held elections since 1884, the democracy has a gain of 210,400. In only three States, Minnesota, 1,032, California 13,050 and West Virginia 0,027, have the republicans made gains, the total being 21,009. In Iowa alone the democratic gain was GS,2SHand in Michigan 50,582. The opening of the Louisville Fall Celebration was a magnificent success both in the make-up of the procession and tho crowd which witnessed it. There were 500 splendid floats and it took them an hour or more to pass a given point. The celebration will last off nnd on for a month. Mit. C.viii.isi.u missed tho connection to Lynchburg and tho Virginians tho opportunity of listening to tho great cxposo the fallacies of tho republicans 0i tho robber, protective tariff. It is hoped that a second appointment will result more successfully. The sincere sympathy of tho editorial fraternity will bo felt for Mr. Enimett G.
