Democratic discontent has seem
ingly developed Into democratic dis
sension, and a movement is now on
foot among disgruntled democrat to
hold a mass meeting In the near future
for tho purposo of demurring to
tho action of the recent council cau
cus, lots mass meeting now seems
probable. Democrats do not like
caucuses in tho first place, especially
those where, It U alleged, relatives,
old cronies, intimate friends and
others, are boosted into oflk'e irrespective
of politics, qualification,
reputation, or anything else.
Tho three score or more candidates
who wero turned down by this new
council in a star chamber caucus
at the county court house
don't like this sort of business, end
many of them havo como to the conclusion
that uow is as good a tunc to
say so as any. I licy also have a few
friends who will stick to them.
If a meeting is held it will be simply
to request the council to ignore
the proceedings nnd nominees of the
late lamented caucus, and for the
sake of tho parly to elect tho city
at the proper time next month.
Should the mectinti materialize it
might at least boast of an attendance
of a hundred or more whilom candidates
and their friends.
Hut not only is there an ominous
discontent among the rank nnd File.
on account of the defeat of somo of
the candidates, and the resentment
of the many candidates' relatives and
friends, hut right in the midst of the
council itself, it is said, there is a
growing dissatisfaction among the
members, who hive seen some of
their pet candidates go down in de
feat, and do not think it should have
been so.
And rcall . it is hinted that there
arc three of the nominee whoarenot
the choice of tho council, but rat! er
I of the mayor.
It h said that in tho race for license
inspector the vote stoyd six
to sir, Messrs. John O'Brien aud P.
D. Jnrvis being the contestants.
Mayor-elect Lang Is credited with
voting for Mr. Jarvis, and thus turning
down Mr. O'Urien, one of
cah's best known nnd oldest citizens
and D;mocrats, who has perhaps paid
as much taxes as any other man in
Paducah during his rcsldcucc here.
Mr. Jnrvis is no doubt a worthy gen
tleman, but who ever heard of him
Somebody has also said that when
the final vote for city weigher was
taken, there were six votes for Mr
Thos. Baird and fix for Mr. Fcrd
Williams. Mr. Lang is also given
tho credit of having cast the vote
that elected Mr. Williams.
There Is also some other ofllcc that
was D'led by the vote of Mayor elect
Lang, It is said, but which one it
was could not be ascertained.
A reporter called on Dr. Lang
this morning and asked him hew-many
of the nominees he was responsible
for, and ho laughingly de
clined to answer the question, saying
that the had been
sworn to secrecy in everything but
tho result of the caucus.
And so it goc3. Some of the
councilmcn are mud, some of the de
feated candidates are mail, and there
is every indication of a "hot old
time" tonie of those days.
One candidate was heard to say,
"I don't mind being beat by n
mau, but I don't relish the
Idea of being knucked out by n bum
or a drunkard, or anything like
But the Sun docs not desire to re
tlect on any one of the nominees
of the worihy council-elect. The
people know those who have been
nominated. If the council-elect nnd
the Democratic party nre satisfied,
there (s po rpasoti why the Sis should
not be. The trouble is, neither the
council-elect nor the Democratic party
is exactly pleased, and this is one
reason why some of tho best Democrats
of tho city arc talking of protesting
against the recent caucus, aud
asking their representatives-elect to
reconsider their action and choose
ofllcers at a regular meeting of the
council, open and above board, whire
relationship, friendship, political
spite and vindictiveness thall uot exist,
and the selections shall he made
in accordance with the respective ca
pabilities and moral character of the
various candidates. Tho people of
Paducah do uot Ik Hove in making a
public trust a privsto snap.

thst tho engineer did not blow tho

The interesting part is that several

night, one man claiming that he knew
it to bo a fact, because he was up
