TUB secret ballot system just now b
is receiving the condemnation of many a
disappointed and disgruntled politi
cians and editors of newspapers of the o
fourthcass It is charged that since J
the adoption of the secret ballot sys I
tem of voting fraud has reigned su I
preme at elections Never was so base I
a charge uttered by man Under this ii
system of voting every mau both rich p
and poor alike enter a secret booth a
and there choose men to make nod f
enforce laws for himself and country t
Under this system men cannot be I
driven to the polls and voted like Si j
many beast of burden The secret
ballot makes a poor man pqual to the I
millionaire Slauy Northern Slates
have adopted the Australian ballot
system of voting and it has proven
eminently satisfactory in every par
ticular The reason why it is unpnpu
lar in Kentucky is because under its
provisions Democracy bas been de J
throned and the State now enjoys the I
inevitable results of Republican rule 1
progress and prosperity There has g
never been a valid reason given for its
repeal and never will There are none i

IWhat Will Kentuckians Do
Recent developments at Frankfort a
indicate that Goebel has the legislature
where je bad the convention Fallen
Blackburn received the caucus nomi
nation for Senator which is not alto r
gether equivalent to an election but u
that of itself shows that the Goebel
geng are in the majority However
Democratic nominations nowaday are
synonymous with the term elec
lion nor equivalent to election Au
other indication that Goebel is san
guine is his serving notice of contest
a majority of the legislators are in
full sympathy with Goebel there Ie no
question now as to the result of a con
st before such a tribunal Among
such honesty is a total strangerright
fairness unknown and justice
eJunong them never Consider
ing the fact that the election which
Goebel and his mercenary followers
now claim was one great scene of
fraud the result of which they are
now contesting was held exclusively
n every instance in every particular
n every nook and corner of the State
by his own ideal men of honor and
honesty and considering their charges I
fraud the honest man loving the t
fair name of Kentucky must blush I
for shame nderauch a state of af
lairs the boasted chivalry and man
hood of Kentucky should rise in its
might assert its authority and enforce
its verdict of November itbat what
ever cost or consequence may follow
We are freemen We must be free
If partisan courts wholly ignore the
great peoples will and decision then
the people should disregard entirely
the decisions and mandates of such
tribunals and seek justice in whatever
manner necessary to recure it If we e
re to be free we must be free indeed h
The outrages of Goebelism upon the
libel ties of Kentucky manhood is an t
insult to her people and goes without
a precedent in all Kentuckys history t
To submit to his fraud and highway
robbery now mean to endure it a quar
ter ofa century Hut we votes the
sentiment of every honest Kentuckian
who regards the will of the majority
above all things else first last and al > I
ways when we say that Kentucky and I
Kentuckians will never endure Goe c

Democratic Discrepancy
The Democratic party under the
leadership of William Goebel in Ken h
tucky is in a worse and more critical
condition il possihle than the Demo
cratic party in the Uuited States un <
der the leadership of William Bryan
In Kentucky Goebel has destroyed
party harmony he has forced the
former leaders of the party to private
life be baa stolen from the members
of the party their rights in conven s
tions and primaries ho has caused
Kentucky to he placed in the bands of
the Republican party to remain an in
definite period in a word be has de 1
stroyed the party in Kentucky by
rascality and thievery He in un
principled 1111a dangerous man I
With his insatiable desire for positions i
of public trust and honor he loses
sight of partys interest and friends a
welfare He never enjoyed the friend f
ship of a man whom ho would not for
sake when bso doing his own ends c
could hA accomplished lIe ouce en
joyed the esteem and friendship of that u
page of Kentucky Democracy lion I
John G Carlisle and when he deemed 1
popular to desert this friend he did
o When it was necessary for him to s
obtain the enmity of Judge John T i
Hodge that his plans might be fat t
warded be did this too and declared t
that he has a doubledealer and an c
unmitigated liar He forsook Capt r
Stone the man from Kuttawa when I
was necessary to steal the nomina 1
tion for Governor lie has gone c
further than to betray his party sass s
dates When politics in Renton coun I
ty were under the leadership of an e
ther man and it became necessary a
for this man to be slain that his am 1
bition might be gratified he provoked c
and slew him t
It is marvelous to note the history i
of this man of evil ambition This f
Judas Iscariot is as abominable to I
Kentucky Democracy as the Judas t
Iscariot of old is to the religious world f
He has bound the decrepit Blackburn c
in chains of adamant For what pun I
pease That his own ends might be c
accomplished Kentucky Democracy s
for the past year has been under con 1
trot of this apostate Tbe party cued
has been destroyed and a new code of
faith has been Instilled into the hearts
of many Partisans Under the leader
ship of the apostate Goebel and the
decrepit Blackburn the Democratic
party made it impossible for frauds to
be committed in elections especially
by Hcpubhcao The law bearing
the title Goebel was declared Ian
gogue mm Goebel and Blackburn to
the local politician In the famous
Music Hall platform we find this lan
We indorse the amendment of the
State election law passed by the last
Democratic General Assembly of Ken
tucky over the veto of the Republican
Governor We declare that amend
ment to be in the interest of honest
and fair elections its faithful enforce
ment will render impossible the com
mission of such frauds as were perpe
trated in this State in 1896 whereby
the will of the people was overthrown
and the State lost to William J
If this law was not faithfully en
forced Mr Goebel and company are
responsible for it The election was
undoubtedly held under Goebels de
crees and no man is responsible save
Goebeland his tools This is the
partys endorsernentbut the language
of the man Onebel had nothing else
been said should condemn every man
that said aught about fraud But the
half has not yet been told the further
we go the more ridiculous the con
tent becomes In his speech at Loa
isville Goebel with clenched fist fac
ing his Savior in Heaven declared
1 have the election right where I bad
the convention You cannot count
me outand you cannot out count me
This is what Watterson said too But
this is not all at McHenry this Be
elzebub screamed The Republicans
may do the voting but we Democrats
will do the counting This statement
should have buried its author in ever
lasting oblivion but there is still more
If there is to be stealing of votes in
Kentucky hereafter we propose to do
the stealing shouted the decrepit
Blackburn at Mayfield to which the
apostate Goebel said amen at Har
roceburg in his speech In the face
of these and numerous other state
ments these two disappointed politi
cians have set up a perpetual howl of
Republican intimidation fraud force
and corruption When a Democrat
elates that the Republicans stole this
election he gives himself the lie and
ninetenths of his colleagues Having
held the recent election and counted
himself out this same murderer as
sassin and thief has concluded to carry
his case into the legislature and there
bulldoze enough men to give himself
the Governors chair If any man or
let of men should be averse to a con
test most assuredly it ought to be
Goebel and the entire Democratic
party The legislature will never seat
such a man The manhood of which
Kentucky has so haughtily boasted
will never permit it Goebel desires
to keep himself at the head of his
party as long as pocsiblefor when this
contest shall have been settled he will
have become a thing of the past
Blackburn and the Senate
If Kentuckys honor and reputation
have ever been maligned by men of
public favor that time is now and J
C S Blackburn is the maligner and
defamer of her glory Less than two
years ago this same man who has
grown fat at the public crib caused
to be martialed around the capitol
building the State militia to protect
the peace and restore order This
same Blackburn bad a friend Sand
ford by name killed by another man i
Goebel by name and at the tomb of
this very dear friend this same Black
burn invoked the God of men to spare
him and be would make it his liles
mission to avenge the death of his
brother friend by burying his slayer
in the depths of merited public exe
cration The prayers of the wicked
availeth nothing consequently this
prayer was a vain one
Instead of complying with this iuvo
cation he decided he could better
bury the slayer of his friend in that
merited execration by making him bis
bosom friend It was this same Black
burn that persuaded the widow ol
Stmdford to withdraw the damage
suit of 825000 that he himself had
instigated against William Goebel for
the murder of her husband It was
this apostate Blackburn that support
ed force fraud and thievery in the
recent campaign This same faithless
renegade politician proclaimed all over
Kentucky that he did not want the
comm Fsiun as Senator unless it was
signed by Win Goebel Governor of
Kentucky Wm Goebel is not Gov
ernor of Kentucky and never will be
nd the legislature should deliver Mr
Blackburns goods to him after his
own choosing and be will never again
disgrace the fair name Kentucky by
representing her people in the United
States Senate tjoebel ban been fair
ly defeated by the will of the people
and yet this man of dignity was the
first to suggest a steal of the high office
of Governor This man of losl houor
has been nominated by the Goebel
critio caucus to succeed William Lind
say in the United Stales Senate It
is quite probable that this nomination
will mean his return to a seat in that
great body of men yet there is some
doubt If this career be Democracy
the sooner it is destroyed trio better oft
will society be Blackburn is a men
ace to popular government and Ken
tuckians demand his retirement
The Blind Tiger
The blind tiger u raging in most
every town in the county In various
communities the tiger is bold enough
to declare himself a privileged char
acter For a number of years the
people have suffered from the effects
of the illicit sale of liquor Time after
time indictments have been found
against these offenders of the law and
in nine cases out of ten the Common
wealths Attorney would move to
throw the indictment out of court and
as a rule the Circuit Judge would
comply with the request of the Attor
ney and the indictments were thrown
out of court From such conduct of
our courts the blind tigers have been
encouraged not only in a certain lo
cality but everywhere in the county
It has been very sad to the Christian
people in some sections of the county
They have had their revival meetings
broken up by the frequent visitors of
the tiger The peace has been fre
quently broken on numerous occasions
by the tigers patron
While Hartford had saloons the
tiger had no place here but ere the
saloons had been cloeed a fortnight
this animal had come to Hartford
From the nature of his decorum he
seems to have come to stay His ef
forts to take the town have met with
wonderful success so much so that the
people have become alarmed They
have organized a club to urge war
against the tiger in all the future
courts When the Commonwealth
Attorney moves to throw out an in
dictment the anti tiger club will
have a man to object and if the Judge
will not give them a fair trial they
propose to swear him off the bench
and elect a man that will act accord
ing to law Those towns infested with
this creature of perdition should have
a similar organization to that which
is in Hartford They should join for
tunes and destroy every tiger estab
lishment in the county The whisky
men are organized against the Chris
tian people everywhere and it is emi
nently important that those opposing
the illicit sale of liquor should link
their interests together and make an
united effort to exterminate the offend
ers of the law The members com
posing the antitiger club are the very
best citizens of Hartford They are
very desirous that the law may be en
forced To this end they are earnestly
laboring With an effort upon the
part of the new town officials the good
people will succeed in banishing from
our midst the most cursed of all crea
tures the blind tiger

lions were adopted as expressing the
sense of the meeting to wit
Whereas The people of Ohio county
bare by a fair vote and a decisive ma
jority decided that the sale of Intoxi
eating liquors is an evil and is hurtful
alike to the citizen and to the body
politic and that the sale thereof should
be by the law prohibited and
Whereas The people of the town of
Hartford the county seat and chief
town of this county have by a free
and fair vote fairly and honestly taken
and counted decided that intoxicating
liquors should not be sold in this town
and when this vote has been success
fully contested in the courts of the
State have again by a free und fair
election recorded the same decision
and have followed this decision by a
long legal battle in the courts of the
State wherein this decision has been
upheld by the law of the land and by
the judgment of the courts and
Whereas The people of Hartford
with but few exceptions are law
abiding people and desire to give no
offense to the good citizens of this
county whose business or pleasure
brings them here by setting at naught
the thus recorded will of the majority
and at defiance those high obligations
which rest alike upon every citizen of
town and county to uphold and respect
and obey the law and

Ity who are charged with the high
duties of seeing that the laws are
obeyed and enforced and to aid when
ever and wherever possible In the
suppression of lawlessness and crime
Whereas It is being openly charged
that there are some lawless characters
here who defiantly trample law and
order under their feet for the lll gotten
gains which they hope to reap and
who thus proclaim that they will not
obey the mandate of this free people
fairly expressed at the polls now
Be it resolved First That the
good citizenship of Hartford will not
permit these lawless persons to insult
and offend the good citizens of Ohio
county whose county town this is by
defying the law against the sale of in
toxicating liquors or by disregard ol
the peoples recorded will in any other

support of every citizen of this county
who believes In the maintenance of
the right of a community to govern
itself by the expressed will ol the ma

of society from that class of criminals

other of the laws which guard and
protect the life liberty and property
oi the citizen and would violate the
homes and firesides whose only safety
and protection in a land like this is
the rigid enforcement of the law

TrIsler Ky Dec 30 1899
It Is once more my painful duty to
write of the death of a beloved friend
a model neighbor Ideal citizen and
Christian gentleman J W Miles of
Trisler Ohio county Ky On the
25th inst at about it a in he fell a
victim to pneumonia complicated with
an acute neuritis of sciatic nerve the
latter at times during the last three
deys preceding death giving him In
tense agony
I think I may safely say he lived
and led a blameless life from its incep
tion until the end embracing a period
jot near Citynine years Perfection I
suppose Is never found this side of the
Beautiful Beyond bat In this case
as neighbors will testify It was bard
to find a genuine Imperfection
I I Yes Will Miles as we familiarly
called him is no more our neighbor
patron and friend no more the lov
ing and beloved husband parent and
counselor in a worthy family no more
to be numbered with the most orderlyS
walking members of Pleasant Grove
I Baptist church but from indubitable
evidences of his acceptance so clearly
shown in his dying hour all of us
have an abiding faith that Heaven
is richer by one jewel and he at rest
But five or six howl before his death
when asked by the writer if he feared
to die he promptly answered 0 no
though I would like Tt stay a whilel
longer with my family I am not
afraId to die adding we must die
sometime anyway
He was sadly laid to rest by the
hands of neighbors and friends In the
cemetery at Pleasant Grove on the
26th inst after a beautiful funeral
discourse to a large concourse of peo
pie weather considered by the Revt
rest from the trials and vexations of
earth rest until the final morn when
soul and body shall be united and 1
purified rest beneath Iht monument
ol marble which will mark your graveI
But you have another monument I
reared by A well spent life that mon55
ument stands In the heart of memory
and with all who knew you here
The free song ol the uncaged bird
and the blooming wild flower will en
liven the scene of your narrow dwell
big but as oft as we pass that way a
sigh will go forth for the friend we
loved notwithstanding your triumph
ant death assure us that your re
deemed spirit is safely housed in the
bosom of Godf and happy in the full
fruition ot the lively hopa which f j
beautified your life JW M
