Jourier Journll
Speaker Carlisle has the follow
ing to say about tlie contesting of
las seat in Congress by Mr Thobe
I dont want to try the case in
the newspapers or to talk about
it for publication but tliere is
such a singular misapprehension
in regard to the matter that it is
not improper I suppose for me to
iv that I took no testimony for
t lie simple reason that it was not
cessary for me to do so The
contestant in his notice charged
iraud and irregularities in about
every preelnt in the district but
w hen be came to his evidence he
did not attempt to prove anything
eept tiiat there were four illegal
votes cast for me in one precinct
in Covington I do not think the
evidence is sufficient to show that
these four votes wore actually cast
forme but assuming that they
were it makes no difference in the
result as my majority was S25
Of course there was no reason why
I should take testimony- The
charges that I intend to rely upon
some legal technicality and that I
will ask an extenlion of time to
take testimony are preposterous
The law allowed me all the time
that was necessary if I had desired
to avail myself of it Certainly I
would not accept a seat in the
house if raj right to it could be
sustained only by retying upon a
teohnicality and so far from rely
ing upon any such gsnnnd I do
not even intend to employ an at
torney or submit any argument to
the committee of the House Mem
bers can lake the record just as
my opponent lias made it jip audi
iipon ruai tney can decide the
case without interference from me
That original and only genuine
prohibitionist Gen Green Clay
Smith was here this week and in
a conversation with us gave tins
wonderlul program of political
events Said lie In 1SSS there
will be five candidates for the
presidency Democratic Repub
lican Prohibition Labor and
Know nothing Tlie Democratic
candidate will win the Republi
can will have the next highest
vote and the Prohibitionist the
next Defeated for the second
time the Republican party will
never nominate another candidate
the labor question will have been
settled by the following election
and in 1S92 there will be a stand
up fight between tlie Democratic
ticket and the Prohibition ticket
these being the only ones in the
field All the temperance Re
publicans will go over to the Pro
hibitions and the whiskv Republi
cans to the Democrats the Pro
hibition ticket will win with hands
down and the year of jubilee will
have come or words to that ef
fect The Gen also snid that in
the next election the Prohibition
ists will poll 22000 votes in Ken
tucky He wound up by asking
us to remember these predictions
and observe their fulfillment to
the letter Gen Smith having
made other predictions which
have not proved his right to be
called a prophet or a son of a
prophet we take his latest effort

lowance Interior Journal

215 r r It was not unexpected lie
liml been iu feeble health for some
mouths and his dentil httd been looked
for daijy for several week Gov
Bittc kbum was a great Juian and one of
the grandest men the Slate has ever
had He was honest candid chari
table tineere grandly philanthropic
and morally one of the few brave men
we have ever known Blackburn was
never afraid to do what he thought
was rig I it Take for instance his ex
ercise of the pardoning power while
he was Governor of the State He
knew that he was lieiiiR ceniured He
eared not He knew that every poli
tician iu the State wa criticising him
He jwid uo attention to them He
knew that his political enimiew were
making capital out of it He dared to
do what lie believed to be right and
bet If he erred it was on the side of
mercy If he made a mistake it was
on the side of justice Self and self
interest were words not in his Lexicon
We append a sketch of his life taken
from a Lexington paper
Ex Governor Luke P Blackburn
died at the residence of his daughter
Mrs Flouruey in Fraukfoit Wednes
day Ihe members of his family and
his family physician being present
Gov Blackburn was born iu Fayette
county seventy three years ago at a
time when his faiher lived iu Wood
ford county near Spring Station but
when his mother was on a vist to her
parents Mr and Mrs John Bell Mr
Bell was a member of the Constitution
Convention that formed our second
constitution his associates being John
Breckinridge Jno McDowell H Har
rison B Thornton and Walter Carr
Gov Blackburns father was Edward
M Biackouru and was a farmer and
bred many celebrated race horses
Gov Blackburns father had eleven
children that grew to maturity His
eldest brother was George and tlie
youngest the present Senator Joseph
C S Gov Blackburn 6tudyed medi
cine at Transylvania University in
this city and began the practice of his
profession here when he was about
twenty one years old About this
time he married tlie daughter of Dr
Joseph Boswell of this city When the
cholera broke out in Versailles in 1835
which was two years after it had pre
vailed in thi3 country Dr Blackburn
went tliere and began waiting 011 the
sick remaining there during the whole
course of the cholera and finally settled
tliere and continued tlie practice of his
profession for a number of years Dur
ing the time he lived there he was
elected to the Legislature and served
one term He moved then to Natchez
Miss and there practiced his profes
sion very successfully About this
time his first wile died and Dr Bluck
buni made a tour to Europe On his
reruru from Europe he married Miss
Churchill daughter of Samuel Church
Ill I5xi of Louisville He lived in
Louisville and practiced his profession
Ihere until the time he was elected
Governor except the time during the
war when he was with the Southern
army as a surgeon Diuiug a part of
this time he was connected with the
command of Gen Pat Cltburu Gov
ernor Magoffin of this State sent Dr
Blackburn South to get guns for Gen
eral now Governor S B Bucker He
secured the guun and sent them to
Kentucky but they were found to be
hardly lit lor service
After the war when yellow fever
broke out in tlie South Dr Blackburn
went there and displayed such heroism
and humanity In exposing himself to
its dangers in order to assist the sufler
ers from It that it gave him nutional
reputation About the time be started
South it was understood that he would
be a candidate for Governor which his
kinsman here Judge Kinkead says
had been his aepiration for twenty one
years Other aspirants for the position
were Judge William Lindsay of Fran
fort and Thoivns L Jones of Newport
They were both exeeedinglyiwpular
gentlemen but Dr Blackburnfc labors
in the South made him friends and In
fluence at a rate that nothing could re
sist and when he got back to Ken
tucky lie was virtually Governor of the
Stater Notwithstanding this he made
a canvass m active that It so Impaired
his health that he never did recuperate
from it This condition was greatly
aggravated by the cares and perplex
ities of his ofllce aud he never was
well after the expiration of his term
About the time of his retirement from
office his sister Mrs Morris of Chi
cago died She was a lady who made
a national reputation by assisting
Southern soldiers during the war aud
Governor Blackburn was greatly de
voted to her He was greatly depress
ed by her death aud it aflected his
health adversely until he died He
leaves only one child Dr Carey Black
burn of Louisville His wife survives
him anil is 5S years old Though
Governor Blackburn was mcees ful in
his profession he lenin only a small
estate which fact is aecoiuitid for by
his large liberality A prominent old
citizen here in speaking about him
yesterday said tlie great quality ot
the mau was the wonderful degree of
his kindness and charity About
seven years ago he took great interest
iu tlie religious ministrations of the
Rev Geo O Barnes while he was in
Louisville He afterward became a
member of the Episcopal Church with
his wife During his administration
the only adverse criticism of his policy
was that he was so kind and lenient in
his disposition that he pardoned too
many criminals His course iu this
though was justified by many aud
especially in view of the fact that the
accommodations in the penitentiary
w ere not sufficient He was a grand
old mau aud has made a distinctive
impress upon the great Commonwealth
that he governed His remains were
buried in the cemetery at Frankfort
Friday at 11 oclock iu the presence of

A PEN PICTURE OF THE MOUNTAINS
McKee Ky Sept 17 18S7
Editors of The Climax
I have spent several months In this
country and have learned much of tlie
people and more of the country It is
truly up iu Jackou You go up
and only come down a little The
mountains are not so high as in other
counties on the average but by the
time you climb from two to a dozen of
tiiem going fiom one settlement to
another you are willing to admit that
they are high enough Ii most of
them is found coal of Hie bestkiud and
some of the hills c nin iron ore
The land In some pints is ery good
in others uot even midlin Timber
in some places and the best found iu
Kentucky Oak poplar and pine are
abundant Tliere is also most of the
other trees represented A company
has had a land agent here buying up
all the land he could get The ptice
I believe was about SI per acre
Cattle are low Tliere is an abund
ant mast this year Corn is not so
good as it would have been if the
drouth had not touched so heavily I
may say it is light Hogs are scarce at
4 cents
Nothing short of a stay in the moun
tains can give any idea of the wonder
ful land The country may vary iu
specific appearances but the people
never They are rather of the Virginia
type of a century ago Old time
notions and habits prevail generally
The dresses are nearer the present
styles than you might expect to find
In religious matters they are talkers
rather than doers but notwithstanding
tills fact I have heard only one ser
mon since I came here Churches
are few aud fur between and what are
not school houses are very easy to
count Iu my school I have some
pretty bright scholars as a rule the
people are not caring for the topics of
the times AH they care for is Well
wholl be the next President or think
the Democrats will git in I write
this last of a special district of cfourse it
varies to some extent At town they
are as lively as any place in tlie blue
grass At most place the first entreaty
at the table is break oread which
invariably in the buck parts is a com
dodger that is if corn can be had
Jut now they use grits a great deal
They are clever out here always
giving their best AH Isee and hear is
too much for my little pen besides my
paper would give out and yours would
not hold it by half As you said not
enough by all take papers The books
I find to be either Bibles or the old
blue back I have seen several otiiers
but theyre scace as hens teeth
Well the people Theyre too much
for me Just like every other place
there are cranks and snges beauties
and others to whom nature has denied
her first gift There are mauy pretty
girls in this county at least I have
found one black eyed girl who has in
terested me considerably more than I
thought possible I wisli all of our
Madison couuty folks would come out
and behold over what a wonderful
land President C exteuds his fishiug
rod When I get home I will tell you
more 1 am afraid this county is not
as well thought of as it should be
