FRIDAY, January. 7, 1898.
Tiih old vear. with its hopes and it
fears, its bright realizations and its
bitter disappointments, its sighs and
its te: rs, has passed away, n consti
intjd one Dace in the great book o
life, upon which every deed, for weal
t r for woe. was recorded, ana upon
which the bright and the dark spots
are mysteriously placed, telling the
true story of real life.
Now that we have beun to fill an
other natre. let us pause and consider
the deep responsibility which rests
upon us. Let us contemplate, calmly
and dispassionately, the effect of our
words and deeds, not only upon ou
own characters, but upon those with
whom we minirle in the dreary battle
of life. Let us brighten the page with
deeds of charity and words of cheer.
None have fallen so low as to bo de
void of influence, and, before the court
of Heaven, we will be held rcsponsi
ble. for our many misdeeds, just in
proportion to our opportunities to
know better and to realize the error
of our wav.
Life is only a book, large or small,
consisting of as many pages as years
we have live I; the good deeds shining
in mire, trolden licht and the evil
deeds represented by dark blurs and
blots. The book is always open to
the inspection of mankind, and from
its pages our characters are formed
and our reputations are determined.
So cverv one is the author of a book,
which is constantly read by his neigh
bors and which should, therefore, bo
published with the greatest care
The gross crimes fill the pages of
some, while good and evil deeds are
seen in others. The prevailing sin,
which is recorded, more or less in
every book, is that of backbiting or
tattlintr. We insist that on the new
page, which we have just opened, this
low, degrading sin will not be record
ed. Place the finger of charity over
the evil deed of your fellow-beings,
and remember that you are mortal,
also, and that,
"If the heart were unveiled and the con
science read on the brow.
There arc many we would pass in scorn,
' who wear the highest honors now."
All nations, both ancient and mod
ern. bv common consent, celebrate the
beginning of a new year with festive
rejoicing. Ihetimeof reckoning has
varied wun aiuercui uauuua. xue
Athenians began the year in June,
the Romans, for a time, in March, the
Persians on August 11th, and the Chi
nese in February.
Many years ago the nobles gave
presents to the sovereign, expecting
favors in return, and it was custo
mary to present gifts to the chancel
lor to bias his judgment. Among the
Chinese the festivities are kept up for
three days, the first thing being the
payment of debts, and if a tradesman
cannot pay his debts he gives his goods
to his creditors a custom that we
should establish here. In Paris there
are brilliant displays and tokens of
good will are freely given, while all
the bells of the city are rung.
The Record extends hearty con
gratulations to its patrons for the
rich blessings they are enjoying, and
earnest wishes for a continuation of
the same. Living in the bright light
of gospel truth and scientific investi
gation, surrounded by and permitted
to enjoy every blessing that can ema
nate from nature and her God, we
should resolve to live purer and better

with the proud satisfaction of know

the world which should be the chief
aim in life and which, alone, can give
comfort to the weary soul when the

Tire Kentucky Legislature assem
bled at Frankfort Tuesday. As the
democrats have majorities in both
houses, their caucus nominees were
elected without much ceremony. The
governor's message is a rather vlnd3'
document, the gist of which is as fol
lows: It bitterly arraigns peace offi
ccrs.charging that they have been in
sympathy with raiders. It recom
mends additional legislation for
Houses of Reform; relief for Court of
Appeals; more stringent regulations
for punishment of election frauds. It
shows the State's indebtedness to be
$4,459,503.47. It declares the Separate
Coach law unconstitutional and strong
ly advocates it's repeal. It asks for
the prohitition of the sale of cigar
retts and their material. It claims
that as a result of raiders the State's
holdings in turnpike stock have shrunk
in value from $400,000 to S100.000, and
says "If this spirit (of lawlessness) is
not stamped out the day is not far dis
tant when the State will be complete
ly under the control of swashbucklers
and highway robbers, who will rob,
murder and steal at wilL" It recom
mends the appointment of a non-par
tisan board to control prisons and
charitable institutions and for econ
omy's sike the abolition of the Bureau
of Agriculture and the Land Office is
recommended, the office of Jailer is
declared useless, and the minor courts
vigorously condemned for useless ex
penditures. Many matters of minor importance
aretouched upon and the Hancock
coanty officials severely criticised for
failure to punish the lynchers of the
Mgro, Bashrod, who was hanged in
broad daylight on the public square.
.luaViner from reports, the meraoers
are above the avjrage in intcHigenci.
At anv rate, let us hope so. If they
are they will attend promptly to what
is to be done, adjourn, go home ana

army of office seekers for them to ever
repeal it. All this fuss about the re
peal is done for show.

Gov. SlcCreary.
The following is another editorial
from the Interior Journal of recent
We have not consulted Gov. Mo
Crcary as to whether he will be a can
didate for Congress next year, but we
are satisfied that there is a general de
mand for Him to make the race. His
unswerving fidelity to the democratic
party; his success in his past races for
Congress; his devotion to duty while a
member of that body and the position
he took as a representative, make dem
ocrats who desire the success of the
party instinctively turn to him as the
man to redeem the district Without
discussing his lengthy record as a dem
ocrat, which we could with great
credit to him, we shall only refer to
the two last campaigns, which tested
democrats more thoroughly than ever
before. Gov. McCreary actively sup
ported Bryan, and made speeches for
him and the platform at various points
in the State in the last presidential
campaign. He also supported John B.
Thompson, the democratic nominee
for Congress, and made speeches for
him in the district, one of which was
in Stanford by invitation when he
made a rousing appeal for Bryan,
Thompson and democracy.
In the campaign this year, he made
a numler of speeches for Shackelford
and county democratic tickets. His
speech in the convention that nomi
nated Shackelford was received with
great favor and his devotion to demo
cratic candidates and democratic plat
forms was acceptable to alL In the
Senatorial race two years ago, he
agreed to a democratic caucus, and
like a true democrat should, urged his
friends to go into the caucus and sup
port the nominee, promising to do so
himself no matter who was nominated.
The member who put him in nomina
tion moved to make Senator Black
burn nomination unanimous and it
was sottone, when he received a ma
jority of the votes.
The governor has said to friends, we
learn, who have approached him on
the subject that the success of the
democratic party in thisCongressional
district, is paramount to his success
and that he is ready to actively sup
port the candidate nominated by the
democratic party.
We have-shown that Shackeiford on
ly beat Bailey 586 in this district and
when the votes of Hindman and the
other candidates for appelate clerk are
subtracted it was shown that be lost
the district by 945. The claim can not
therefore be made that this is a dead
sure democratic district. It will be
hoove the democrats to put forth their
best and strongest man. Let there be
no unseemly scramble for the place,
but let eyery democrat seek the good
of the party and with a harmonious
nomination we will sweep the. district
as of yore. There will be but one
office voted for in November and the
candidate will have to look after the
organization and bear the burdens of
the campaign without the aid of other
candidates. We believe that Gov. Mc
Creary is more fully capable of mak
ing a successful campaign than any
man in the district, but if convinced
otherwise, we are ready to accept any
good man, who can pilot us safely to
Victory. '

Andrew Jackson Brown.
As many of our older Garrard countv
citizons remember the- subject of the
following sketch, we reproduce it in
iu.il irom Monday's Courier Journal:
The old days were truly trood old
days, but oven when the political his
tory of Kentucky was still in its it.-
fancy leaders of the contsnding par
ties resorted to strategem to land as
winners the candidates they support
ed. Away back before the war the
parties in Kentucky; that antagonized
each other over olllce and issues were
the Democrats and Whigs. Down in
Garrard county the Whigs were in the
majority, but a story stiU survives a
legacy to the oldest residents of how
the Hon. Andrew Jackson Brown, of
Lancaster, lawyer, surveyor and a
Democratic leader, made the Whigs
tremble with fear on a certain election
day, though the men who espoused the
principles of Democracy were in a
hopeless minority. Andrew Jackson
Brown was a native of Virginia, hav
ing been born and reared in famous
Old Albemarle county. In his early
youth he moved with his parents to
Lancaster, Ky., and there gained
prominence as an attorney and a sur
veyor, many men in that day follow
ing both professions.
Brown was always an ardent Dem
ocrat and though ho was well aware
of the odds against him and of the im
possibility of victory perching on the
Democratic banner, he never failed to
make a plucky fight for the Democratic
candidates. He throw heart and soul
into the canvass, and being eloquent
in speeoh and conversant with the
leading topics of the day, nevor failed
to make an address when the occasion
presented Itself. He was also possess
ed of an imposing physique and al
ways commanded the greatest atten
tion from his audiences
It was during a race for State Rep
resentative that Mr. Brown determin
ed to stir up consternation among the
Whig forces, though there were but
fiftj--three Democratic voters in the
whole county at the time. No one
knew this, however, except Mr. Brown.
The race was made when elections
consumed three days instead of one
and when all voters cast their ballots
at the county seat instead of the more
convenient rural precincts.
Mr. Brown groomed for Representa
tive Dan Ray, a prominent citizen of
Lancaster, a large slave owner and
considered one of the wealthiest men
in Garrard county. Mr. Ray's candid
acy having been duly announced, Mr.
Brown proceeded to tour the whole
county, quietly urging all Democratic
voters to assemble in Lancaster tho.
first day of the election and to con e
in time to cast their votes in the morn
ing. He never missed seeing a single
Democrat, for on the mornine- of the
election they were all massed about.
I the poll in Lancaster, all talking
auoui me encouraging prospect for
their candidate. The Whigs were dis
mayed. They hovered about the noil.
awe-stricken at the exhibition of
unexpected Democratic strength.
They were taken completely off guard
and many hurried and secret confer
ences followed.
By noon all the fiftv-three Demo
crats had voted. It was then that the
Hon. Andrew Jackson Brown threw
off his coat, rolled up his sleeves and
mounting a large box in front of the
poll, announced the withdrawa'l of
his candidate. M-. Ray, he said, w: s

strength of his partv how it could
sweep the field without exertion if it
so desired.
It was not until long afterward that
the Whigs saw how they had been
tricked. In the interim they were
greatly discomfitted, believing them
selves to be really outnumbered by the
constituents of the opposing party.
