B I; f Interior Journal Stanford. Ky., - March 15, 1895 W. P. WALTON. If tho republican Legislature ol Indiana, which has just adjourned sine die, represents tho party in Hoosierdom, it is only a question of short time when the honest peoplo will return the government to democratic hands. Tho session ended Monday with the most disgraceful of the many acta which had character ized it from tho inception. The measly gang attempted to prevent the governor's secretary from reaching the House with a veto message when a riot followed and several men were seriously hurt, the secretary fatally. The veto was of tho bill to abolish the office of State House custodian and the body adjourned before it was read. The rascals carried their point bat it ought to, and doubtless will, result in the democrats carrying the State next t'me, notwithstanding the most dishonest of all gerrymanders. Tbk war in the Orient is about at an end. The pig tails were no match for the fighting little Japs, whose record is a series of conquests from the beginning. The terms of peace, which seem to have been agreed on, give Japan everything she fought for. Ohina relinquishes all claims to Corea, the Island of Formosa is to be permanently ceded to Japan and she is to get an indemnity of $250,000,-000 in gold. In addition Ohina has lost many thousand men, nearly all her navy and her strongest forts are to be occupied by the enemy. Tho Chinese ought now to beat their-spears into pruning hooks and their swords into plow shares and go to war no more until they know more of the science and can screw their courage to the sticking point. Iif Ohio women are permitted to vote in certain elections, but before doing bo they have to be registered, with their ages given. This latter provision practically makes the law of no avail to tho majority of the women, who would prefer never to vote or obtain any right if they have to tell how old they are to do so.- At Cleveland they are kicking" very high about it and they have a right to. There is no reason for making a woman tell more than a man. All that be has to do is to say that he is 21, and that ought to be sufficient for the ladies to tell. The Kansas courts have decided that they are not obliged to tell their their age, as it would render the law absolutely nugatory. Let what h Bauce for the goose be also sauce for the gander. "WonTH makes the man," we are told by Pope, but a later poet could have just as truthfully said, that "Worth makes the woman." The Parisian man milliner, who baa just passed in his checks and gone perhaps where clothes wouldn't do much good, will have to answer for many sins of deception. He could make the most angular woman look as round and aB plump as a partridge and fool the very elect of men. Many a man has married a woman to find that it was the feathers that made the bird that Worth was particeps criminis in tho decep tion. TnE income tax law is now before the U. S. supreme court and is being argued by distinguished lawyers who are trying to convince the court of its unconstitutionality on account of its class other reasons. If it is declared to be no good, there will be a very large deficit in the treasury, to meet which Con gress would likely have to be called into extra session. The Lord forbid. Give us the income tax, give us hades and throw in the devil, hut no more Congress for the present if you please Mr. Cleve. land. Tub new liquor law in Indiana is a very stringent ono. It prohibits the use of screens or curtains and provides that an application for license to sell liquor may be defeated by a petition of a majority of voters in any ward or township. Saloons are not to be provided with chairs or tables and the man wh.o takes his bitters will have to do so standing up and in full view of the street. The march toward reform and the final extermination of the saloon is growing apace and may God hasten the day. Col Nicholas McDowbll, of Danville, commissioner of agriculture by appointment of Gov. Brown, announces that owing to ill health, be will be forced to give up his candidacy for the nomination to succeed himself. He has made an excellent official and his friends regret that they will not have a chance to show their appreciation of his faithfulness. His retirement leaves the field practically clear for Col. Ion B. Nail, who will doubtless be the nominee. Hurrah for Nail. Tiib withdrawal of Houk from the race for door-keeper of the House leaves Col. Silas Adams with but one opponent, at present. Everybody who knows tho gallant old soldier hopeB to see him victor and the chances now. are decidedly in his favor. Tub republican Leaialature of West Virginia has passed a law forever dis franchising a man who Bella his vote or offers to do so. That settles it. West Virginia will never go republican again. ! Though under sentence of five yeais' imprisonment and to pay n fine of ?5,000 for complicity in tho recent still born revolution in Hawaii, the government at Honolulu is not to ho Too hard on She will bo' permitted to shako the dust of the island from her dusky feet and go to England, where bIio will be able to keep the wolf (torn her door on her income of $10,003 a year. She will hardly bo a visitor at Windsor Castle, however, Queen Victoria not specially fond of "nigger" queens, of the ex- variety, at any rate. Emmktt Garvin Looan'b merits as a weather prophet haVat last been recognized by the government, which has ap pointed him observer at Anchorage. The Courier-Journal devotes half a column to tho announcement and gives the reassuring assurance that we shall now have no more bad weather. Mr. Logan is said t) carry his weather in his hip pocket and always has the best variety. Friends of Judge James H. Tinaley, of Barbourville, are urging him to stand for the republican nomination for attorney-general. There is not a better man in his party, nor a more learned lawyer and jurist, and he would make a model official, but he sees the futility of the efforts of the republicans to capture Kentucky and wHl likely not play in the losing game. G. W. Long, of Edmonton county, who wants to run on the republican ticket for State treasurer, is working the newspapers of bis party for all they are worth. His ugly mug appears in nearly all of them, and is of itself sufficient to defeat him. We should dislike to see even Kentucky's empty treasury turned over to a man, who looks like his picture. Tuk chief clerk of trio House has at last been able to officially place the new members of Congress politically, There are 2-15 republicans, 104 democrats, six populists and one silverite. It will bo observed that the republicans have a little more than a working majority. NEWSY NOTES. Eggs are down to 10c in Louisville now. Scott county's tax rate for the pres ent year is 82J cents.
