Hon. Charles D. Jacob died sud
denly Christmas morning, causing
a pang of sorrow to every one in
the community on that joyous day,
for no man was so universally loved
by the people of all classes and con
ditionsalt respected him, even his
political rivals. Born, reared and
throughout life rich, his gentleman
ly beaiiug, politeness and charity
endeared him to the poor, in whose
behalf he did so much as Mayor
ntirl ns an individual: to rich and
poor he was the same affable man;
to the workingmen he was a wise
counselor, a sympathizing friend, a
eenerous helper; to all a gentleman
at all times.
To the city the benefits of his
wise, enterprising, far-seeing public
spirit are manifested in our parks,
best streets, boulevards, sewers,
lights and improvements in police,
fire and other municipal depart
ments, urged if not really inaugu
rated by him as Mayor. He was
ever progressive, pushing forward
to make things better, more com
fortable, convenient, beautiful, to
bring his native city to the front,
advance its interests, develop its
manufactures, build up its com
merce, extend its trade; and he
succeeded in at least starting prog
ress in the old town in spite of all
the opposition of politicians and the
old-time "let-well-enough alone"
folks, who, admiring the Mayor,
yet shook their heads dubiously at
his seeming extravagance and wor
ried over
. . . m
ing ms ic
terms as Mayor, amid
all the'' contentions of municipal
strife in twelve years and six cam
paigns for Mayor, no one ever dared
to cast the least reflection upon his
individual character. On the con
trary, no man was held in higher
esteem, loved by a larger and more
varied personal following, who, re
gardless of politics, religion, wealth,
family, friendship, anything, any
body, were ever eager to work,
hurrah and vote for "Charley Jacob
for Mayor against the world!
When the issue of expansion and
imperialism first came to the front
it met with occasional sympathy and
approval from labor organizations.
But this has entirely changed, says
a writer in the Pittsburg Post.
Whenever labor now speaks on the
subject, and it does so whenever
occasion presents, there is no doubt
what it means that is, decided
and unfaltering opposition to im
perial acquisitions. It has not
taken labor long to reach the con
clusion that the annexation of eight
or ten millions of Malays means a
flood of cheap labor that must in
the nature of things come into com
petition with free labor.
In New York City all the asso
ciated labor unions fraternizing with
the Central Labor Union on .Christ
mas placed themselves on record in
opposition to imperialism and ex
pansion. The vote was unanimous.
As against the policy of an alliance
with Great Britain so much talked
of the Central Labor Union indorsed
n thepreservation of the wise and'
time-attested policy of George
' Washington of avoiding all entang
ling alliances with European pow
ers." There is no reason to question
the fact that labor organizations
throughout the Union hold to the
view of the New York organization.
This is an immense popular power,
dready organized and informed,
that the imperialists must count-on

cheap labor that moves the working
men. Associated with expansion
to the Asiatic seas comes the neces
sity of a great increase of the
standing army, to which Americans
generally are in determined opposi
tion. The teachings of their lives
are against it, as well as all they
have learned from history.
And he jes' laffed, and well he
may. The present gambling law
was never intended to suppress
gambling, but enable lawyers and
others to fleece the gamblers, who,
in return for being fleeced, were to
enjoy a monopoly of the game.
Occasiouaily, to beguile the public,
or to vent spleen on some particu
lar rival sport, or where one has the
hardihood to dare open up a game
outside the privileged set and
tuses or tans to ante up. we are
furnished a spasm of law and order,
as was enacted in the past few days,
and gambling is dead that is, long
enough to delude the public, grat
ify the spite, freeze out the rival or
force him into line then gradually,
but surely, gambling revives.
. So long as the parties who opened
the St. Leger were connected with
the Newmarket in cahoot with
the Turf Exchange, employing
Aaron Kohn as attorney they
were frequently indicted and ar
rested aloncr with the others, but
never convicted, never raided, never
closed up.
'Hip Nil T--t was closed, and
d operated" ft f despite
frowns and covert
reats, opened the St. Leger in
opposition to the Turf Exchange
aud selected another than Aaron
Kohn for their attorney. Within
a single day they are indicted,
raided, jailed with everyone caught
on the premises, their furniture
seized and the place closed. The
majesty of the law must be upheld!
Now for the real animus of it all
Never was law and its machinery
used more brazenly. Owiug to the
illness of Commonwealth's Attorney
Parsons Saturday, Aaron Kohn,
chief attorney for the Turf Ex
chage gamblers, was acting as Com
monwealth's Attorney pro tern
By virtue of the office he was the
legal adviser of the grand jury
which ordered the raid, seizure and
arrests. If he did not advise them
aud allowed them to proceed ille
gally he failed in his duty. There
fore, as Commonwealth's Attorney,
he is responsible for it.
On Monday morning Aaron Kohn
appears in tlie Police Court as at
torney for the arrested gamblers
some of the Turf Exchange crowd
having been bagged with the others
and declares the grand jury's
order for the raid, seizure and ar
rests to be irregular, null and void,
and moved and urged the court to
dismiss all parties, restore all prop
erty and even refund all fees col
lected by court officials.
Monday afternoon and Tuesday
morning Aaron Kohn was again
f Commonwealth's Attorney, and the
grand jury ignores the action of the
Police Court, orders the seized
property held as evidence and
issues a writ requiring the Chief of
Police to bring it to them, and in
dicts a few more gamblers.
On Tuesday afternoon Aaron
Kohn, as attorney for the gamblers,
confers with the Mayor. Chief of
Police and Board of Safety to have
the prosecution stopped, the prop
erty restored, the pool-rooms to
Wednesday morning Aaron Kohn
plays the double role at one and
the mmt, time. In the Circuit
Court the sgrcetneut of the ram
blers to close up, on condition the
indictments are dismissed, etc., is
read, signed by their attorneys,
Aaron Kohn one of them, aud then
Aaron Kohn, as Commonwealth's
Attorney pro tern., on behalf of the
State, accepts the proposition and
moves the dismissal of the cases,
etc., and concluded the dual per
formance by indignantly (?) de
nouncing'the newspapers who had
reflected upon his integrity(!) He
is right. Anyone that dares reflect
upon a lawyer who enjoys the
especial privilege of acting as attor
ney for prosecution and defense in
a case at one and the same time and
getting a fee from both ought to be
indignantly denounced.
And yet there are people who
honestly wonder why it is the law
and courts are not respected in this
Notice the different methods
adopted by the city government in
the matter of pending claims. The
corporations against whom the city
had large claims were let down very
easy, concessions being made in all
cases. To offset this, according to
daily paper reports, the city refuses
to recognize the claims of a large
number of street laborers, threaten
ing them with loss of employment
if they persist in demanding salaries
they are entitled to under ordi
nances passed by the Council, ap
proved by the City Attorney aud
signed by the Mayor. How would
it work to hold up the pay of the
board until its members respect the
rights of the poor laborer?
Bond Commissioner Fetter will
not add to his reputation as a pub
lic official by dismissing from office
Jack Shelley to make place for his
son, who lost out under Collector
Sapp. Mr. Shelley is one of the
most competent and popular men
who ever occupied a place under
the Bond Commissioner. Mr. Fet
ter was placed there to serve the
pnblic, not his immediate relatives,
and the making of a political bucket
shop of the office should be con
demned by, the general public.
During the next two months the
Government expects to bring back
to this country the remains of those
officers and soldiers who lost their
lives in Cuba, Porto Rico and the
Philippines. Relatives who wish
the remains of deceased soldiers
sent to their homes will notify the
Quartermaster General of such de
sire. The example set by the great
dry goods firm of J. Bacon & Sons
in making this holiday season a
memorable one to 250 persons
should be followed by all our lead
ing merchants and manufacturers.

It is remarkable how many men
who never bet on horse races "just
happened to drop in" to a certain
pool-room in time to be nabbed by
the police last Saturday.

Frankfort, Ky Dec. 30. The pri
mary is over and Hon. South Trimble
has been elected over Col. W. E. Thomp
son to become the Democratic standard
bearer for Representative of Franklin
county in the next Legislature. Out of
2,100 votes polled the Hon. South Trimble
secured over 1,400, making his majority
over 700. He carried the city by seventy
one votes, which was a surprise to even
the most sanguine Trimble men. The
city had long been ceded to Thompson
by nt least 100. Trimble carried every
precinct in the county except one, even
Col. Thompson's precinct. Mr. Trimble
now has over eleven months to make his
canvass and strengthen his fences so as
to have victory perched upon his banner
November 7, 1899. Mr. Trimble claims
that he will get a capital appropriation
bill through, but those who have watched
his course in the Legislature are not so
sanguine of the success of his efforts, if
he ever makes any in that direction.
However, he will receive the solid Dem
ocratic support in Franklin county, as he
is the Democratic nominee.
