to realize that what we are and what
we do are along the lines of a wise cre
ation It is often very easy for us to
feel that we might change things for
the better if the power and opportu
nity were but ours But the most
astute cleverness of man is a poor af
fair when compared with the siippl est
wisdom of God And onathHig that

ExGov TV O Bradley Returns Homo
Trust Faithfully
ExGov William O Bradley came
home a few minutes last week to see
to some important business and made
hot tracts hack to Frankfort where
he is employed in the contest cases
THE RECORD had a short talk with
him and learned that while he would
locate here for ti while yet his per
manent residence had not been decided
upon He has had several flattering
offers to practice law in the large
Cities but has not yet had time to
think over the matter Ha tells us
that he comes away from Frankfor t
several thousand dollars worse off
than when he went The otlice pays a
ofmuch entertaining and no governor
has yet been able to make both ends
meet during the term He speaks in
tothe highest terms of the Frankfort
people and says he has some very
1warm friends there and will always
ant d
courtesies As Garrard is proud of hers
isson THE RECORD deems it wise to
give a brief synopsis of Gov Bradleys
work He had more difficult problems
1to handle than any governor who has
occupied the chair Toll gate raiding
ssountain fued a disgraceful session
erof the legislature and many other
matters which had never come up in
reprevious years were brought before
him As to how well he handled them
reshould make their verdict as citizens
and not as politicians In his address
Gov Bradley said among other things
toThe present administration came
into power under the most adverse
circumstances For the first time in its
history Kentucky elected a Rxjpubli
can ticket The consequence was that
many persons who had come to look
upon the offices of the Democratic
isparty became thoroughly nrpused and
instead of giving such assistance as
was proper to advance the interest of
edthe State aroused a most partisan
attitude of obstruction With one
branch of the Legislature Republican
isisms arose that no human power could
control Much needed legislation fail
ed rendering necessary the calling
of a special session
In the meanwhile by economy and
good management the credit of the
State has been restored current ex
Epenses have been promptly met every
dollar of the 1717000 paid and today
we have in the treasury 1100000
This is more than sufficient to liqui
date 500000 of bonds issued by the
present administration and the 500
000 issued by our predecessors The
State debt except educational al
and college bonds which are not re
deemable but on which interest is
semiannual paid has been paid and
Kentucky is today practically outp
tThe common school interest have
been carefully guarded and despite
atmany difficulties arising by reason of
the decisions of the Court of Appeals >
which reduced the revenues the per
capita of the first year has been stead
ily advanced and this too although
needful legislation was denied The
expenses of the various department of
government have been decreased and
lynot one cent has been misappopriat
Every effort has been made to en
force the law and preserve the public
peace and it is cause for supreme re
gret that in the closing days of ti tcin
administration an excited but ordinarily
arily orderloving people should have
brought reproache to the good yec
of the State My countrymen the
sooner we learn that peaceful and
Coprosperious citizens will not come
among us as long as we show contempt
for courts and take the law into our
hands the better it will be for the
advancement of the Commonwealth
The commission of one crime to pun
ish another cannot be justified by a
civilized people It may be in some
instances that no punishment for the
criminal is too severe but the law has
infixed the punishment and the inflict
ion of any other cannot be justified
We have recently passed through I
the most remarkable campaign for
bitterness and intense excitement that
the State has ever known Let us indulge
dulge the hope that after the cyclone
has swept over the State every citizen
irrespective of party will go earnestly
to work to remove the debris and build
up in the hearts of all rile peoplef
spirit of forbearance forgiveness and
bebrotherly love
Today this administration passes in
to history and I trust may be approved
by the calm and deliberate judgement
of the people Four years ago stand
ing upon this spot I gave the pledge
isthat I would do the right as God en
abled me to see the right and would
be Governor of all the people This I
have faithfully attempted to do and
can truthfully say that I have the ap
proval of my conscience No Execu i
tive of this State has encountered so
much of storm and so little of sun
shine so much of grave responsibility
and so little of peace and rest If in
the tempest I have failed to steer the
ship over the proper course it was the
darkness that misled and not the rtno
or brain
thatay Io
have borne for four years with a pro J
found pleasure only regretting that I
another must take it up The people
gave the trust to them I return it
thanking them for the honor confer
red Vs
Asked in regard to the contest he I
retainedrs as
rscounsel and there are to be I believe
five lawyers to assist me As yet I am
doing the work alone The claims of 4
the Democrats that people were de 1
pried of their suffrage in Louisville 1
on account of the presence of the 1
military is absurd What did the <
voters care for 150 men locked up in c
the armory there Not a single man 1
was allowed to go on the streets in J
uniform even when they went indi <
vidually to vote Had not these men
been there however I am convinced
there would have been the worst riot 1
in that town that ever occured in thej
State Henry Watterson had publish
ed that himself the other members of 5
the staff of his newspaper and intact 1
every Goebel man in town including j
the Mayor and the police officers had 1
been threatened with assassination >
These soldiers were there to quell riot i 4
if riot broke out and not to hinder J
voters The tissue ballot cry is equally I
flimsy The same paper was used for
ballots in Democratic counties as was
used in the counties of Johnston
Knox and Pike We will show that
the paper used in these Republican
counties was the same that was used
in many other counties and it wasnot
for the purpose of telling how a man
voted Governor Taylor will coma in
ly appoint man to till the Vacancies in
the State Board of Election Commis
sioners as he has the right to do un
der the constitution The Court of
Appeals has never passed on this
point and I believe that part of the
law will be declared uncoiistiiStiona 1
by them We have no fear of losing
although we intend to make a fight tot
the finish
rGovernor Bradley has not escaped
terror and he has not been invariably
years ago but he has been at all times
rtthe best Governors the State has ever
had and tortuitous circumstances
have within the past year so complete
ly eradicated all differences between
Kentucky Republicans that the
close of his administration finds the
party more harmonious and decidedly
isstronger than at any previous period
in its history
Governor Bradley has not yet ex
pressed himself as to any further polit
ical ambitions which he may enter
tain but Republicans in all section of
rethe State are suggesting the giving of
such new evidence of the partys con
fidence in him as are involved in mak
ing him the caucus nominee and iM

Dear Mr Sober Editor It becomes
my most painful duty to warn you
ofthat you Mr Sober Editor and tt isto
foln ks
of whom I know in this whole coun
try who are loitering among beds ofon
roses nigh a tigers den You may
have heard that there is a blind tiger
in town and one is not as bad as it us
ed to be but Mr Sober Editor did
you know that blind tiger was a ti
gress and she has whelped and h e rof
children have whelped until about
half of the former haunts of men in
to me like is scared and making
friends with these tigers and tigress
toslower than a 20 gait and if the good
iswomen in this townGod bless the rto
very names dont awake from their
Rip VanWinkle nap and get on their 1
utensils of warfare they will find aj
Ztman who is something very dear t ohas
them and so brave that he bares his j
breast night after night to fight o n odry
of these tigers will come home to
them dehorned with his rose shifted
ndrom button hole to nose with b ut f
one consolation for themthey need
not rock him to sleep and who seand
breath next morning will be far above
par at a stink factory
geJoshua when he surrounded the
walls of Jericho confronted no harder
task than one of these good women
when she kisses the object of her af 1
ndfections tells him to go on and be a o
good boy How brave and good a wo 1
man who must kiss a man whose
breathwould make a dog leave a tan I
tyard that she might perchance ena a
ble him to resist a tiger Lets change f
the army and about face Shed I
no more tears Mr good Sober Editor h
and ladies for the mill will never 1
grind with the waters that has past G
dont cry anyway tears are high pric I n
ed and as we are going to have water t
works we dont need them Lets get f
shoulder to shoulder and cage these ti S
gers and tigresses for a dry town and I
20 tigers are about as much in keeping c
with each other as a circus parade and
a funeral procession would look together
er and I could not witness a thing e
like that because it is very inconsis o
tent and inconvenient to cry and I
tolaugh both at the same time If we
dont cage these beasts of prey some a
of the most attractive dudes in town s
will be In a short time as large in the b
abdomen as a nipple on a babybottle e V
and these same little dress paraders S
with these diminutive little stomachs t
and whose insignificant little under
pinning resembling closely in circum y
ference those of a Katy Did and i
daintily proportioned bodies having aI
striking resemblahce to a wasp minus 3

discharge of his little pistol Now one
of these modern little pigmies highly
inflated with stale beer and crackers
might be caught by a spider at some
unguarded moment when his hand
was not on his little gun to protect
himself and be carried to a ceiling
and there devoured with the same
speed as a spider would a fly And
Mr Sober Editor I can almost heaj
the little spiders cry from disappoint
ment when mother spider calls her
little children to breakfast poor little
things fully expecting to feast their
hnngry appetites upon a fat fly dudeN
find only the carcass of one little dude
for their entire family Now dear
Mr Sober Editor we can illy afford to
lose such promising young men and
the sweethearts of these little creat
ures would be stampeded by the burn
Ing of the air castle of lovefiction and
fancy which he has spent hours help
ing her build Now the death of one
little dude at the breakfast table of
one spider and family and the redicu
lous and appalling thought that he
was caught at night time drawn to a
ceiling and there devoured all because
he did not have his hand on his little
gun would bring abont a war une
qualed between the sweetheart of the
sweethearts of other dudes who in
their turn would follow said deceased
dude and the spider family the out

broadest brain could determine

what a dangerous place for an inflated

which his head will easily pass Now

cant cage them and if we cant cage
must begin with hasty step at once
