Thu odds are against his calling it. Hut what good would it do to call a special session, without appointing a special commonwealth's attor ney to prosecutu the cass when Mr. Itiugo has his hands full nt pres ent lighting the contest with Mr. Tanner for one of the offices over which there was so much money spent and whlskoy drunk. "Imagine the circuit Judge going Juto a saloon on Fourth street and calling In the multitude and lining them up and after the drinks had been served, some of his henchmen laying down three $fi.00 hills and the bartender ringing the change for $14. ST. and, returning only fifteen cents out of $15.00. Then comes one of his appointees who said "My olllce depends on the election of the Judge, come up boys und have one on me!" And the multitude gathered and they were all of ouo mind, and that was tiiat they would each take a drink to the health nnd success of the Judge and his appointee every timo they were asked. One poor boy got too much, and ho found his way to the lockup and nfter hla trial the next morning he said to a friend on St. Ann st. "I had too much Rlrkhcad whiskey last night. That was the lirst time I was ever drunk and It will be the last time." Judge what would "My Good Grand Jury" say about that kind of conduct. That kind of conduct on the part of public olllclnls is what makes dry town, dry cities and dry states. The people .won't stand for a thing of that kind now. There was n time when you could havo got ten by with It, hut you can't do It now. We do not object to the Judge tuklng a drink If he wants It, hut he must not call the multi tude Into the saloon Jut-t before the day of the primary at the close of a speaking at which his friends howled bis opponent down. A thing of that kind can't be made a success In this day nnd generation. Some one may get the Idea that we are for state wide prohibition Judging from what we have said above, hut we are not, we are for the county unit and have been for years, but If any thing would make us for statewide prohibition It would be a fuvv more primaries like the one pulled oft on August the 7th. We venture the assertion that if all the bottles and Jugs that were used In this judicial district pri mary, could be brought from the fence- comers and thickets, they would fill two largo furniture cars It Is no uncommon thing for the small boys to come down the street with an arm load of empty bot tles gathered up from the ruins of August 7th. Some onb bought them and some one distributed them. . Who did it? We think Judge Hlrkhead should call a special grand Jury and appoint a spe cial attorney to prosecute the cases, or they should turn both nomi nations back to the people, or the committee." Owonsboro News. The above article was printed in the Sept. 3, 1915 issue of this paper. Later the following question was Included In one of our editorials: Did Judge lllrkhead and Mr. Clements go Into a saloon or saloons on Wednesday night before the August primary and,then and there pur chase lluor or other Intoxicating drinks for various men who at tended a speaking at which Judge Glenn had been booted, hissed and otherwise dlscoureously treated? What a lot of blind Democrats the Hartford Herald might bave mlsled If they had answered this question with a single "No" instead of going way off on a tangent and never even alluding to the truth or untruth of this Important article. Absolutely no one has unswered this question negatively. BOLD DEED OF TWENTY MEN Said To Be 'Followers of De La Rosa, So Called Texas Revolutionist. Brownsville. Texas. Oct. in. Inspired by a race hatred as well as the desire for loot, 'JO Mexicans, who claimed to be followers of Llls de La ItoMi, the leader of tho so-called Tex as revolutionists, iieid up and robbed the St. I.ouls. San 'Francisco train near Olinlto. soveu miles north of here last night. As a result two men are dead, and another probably fatally wounded, four others wore seriously hurt. Tho bandits nre believed to have escaped Into Mexico. Corporal McIIee of the Third Cal alry was Bhot and killed. Engineer Kendall was crushed beneath the engine. Dr. K. S. McCain.

The smoker aud day coach remained up right. While a dozen bandits kept up a fusillade outside, the train, six en tered the cars and bogau shooting, directing the fire nt soldiers In uni form, but who were unarmed. After cowing the pnsengcrs, tho bandits robbed them of a few hun dred dollars, toolc tho shoes from a porter and ono other man and lied. The porter ran three niljes and tele-' phoned of tho holdup. Soldiers from Sail Benito pursued a trestle ahead of tho train. An extended search today railed to dlscloso them. Troops on Trull. A discharged United States sol dier uppcared at Ollmlto shortly aft er midnight aud reported the train had been fired upon and that the en gineer and several other persotw bad been killed. The sheriff and a posse started In automobiles, and a special train carrying two companies of In lantry, started for the scene. A troop of cavalry left shortly or tcrwards and was Tollowed by an automobile truck carrying a detach ment of Inrantry. The first definite Inrormatlon ro celved nt Ft. Brown said that a band of 70 or SO Mexicans pulled out a rail from the track nnd the engine nnd baggage car went Into tho ditch. Mexicans then swarmed on the train, It was reported and looted it. A long trestle half n mile south of the wreck, was set oa Hro after tho train bad been held up and nearly destroyed. This hindered tho progress of tho troops so that the bandits had tlmo to llee Into the brush. Passengers who reached here on a relief train early today said that tho train wns derailed nnd brought to a stop; that the Mexican; poured Into the coashes, shouting "Viva I'izana," and commenced shooting at passeng ers. Plzana, tho ninit tho bandits were cheering is tho supposed lender or tho so-called "Texas revolution" organized under tho "plan of San Diego" which last year contemplated tho seizure of border states aud re turning them to Mexican rule.

Instructions to Grand Jury in October 1913 Differ Greatly From Oct. 1915. Extracts Trom Mr. Riugo's Instruc tion to the grnud jury: Gentlemen or tho grand Jury, there arc just somo matters of much Im portance that I want to speak to you about. That the public in adcanco may uudomul what they are going up against I want to say these few things to you good men. 1 know this county us well as any rann, nnd know the good people who live here want ,to do the right thing., Tho' peoplo of Ohio county do not want to violate the law, and the majority nre good, law abiding citizens; hut a long tlmo ago there grew up in this county a tendency to ue money in elections. Some of you older men remember. That was an evil day for us nil. During my residence in this county I took an active Interest In politics more than I ought .to have taken, because we are all' one race and one blood, andloo our country and Iter government tho same. And the line-up with tho parties Is just an effort to get what the good peoplo consider best Tor the public welfare. There siro men who lino up with the different par ties just to get 'the dollar, hut the good men of Ohio county do not do thut. Vou know that and I do. But there were somo good men around here who; made up their minds they could Influence the election by put ting out some dollars. They put out tho poison, and ever since that time we have reape dthe results. After that some men got Into their minds that a public election was Just a pri vate snap, and they went into it for just what they could get out of If. That went on until It finally got so these men around this court house could not win an election without its taking three years of salary to pay tho expenses of tho election. These men are honest' men, but'.jsometimes men of other kind get into otfico, but I never knew a dirty dollar to pass the hands of any officer of Ohio county. But when u man has to spend tho hnrd-earned money of many years labor to get into office, It takes, a hard fight not to fall to tho temptation of getting tt back when he had to spend It In getting his office. In the beglunlg many thought It wus all right to pay a man for his time In going to the election, when he worked nt a sawmill, or some thing, it was alright to pay some ono to work in his place when he went and voted, and ?5 on tho side; but that has grown Into such pro portions that wo see now the evils of this und know the custom should never havo been established. The public knows this is wrong, and you and I know It Is wrong, aud the thing to be done Is to suppress It. I am not speaking on account of any body's party, but on my own respon sibility. I am not representing any party. It is truo I atllllate with one party, as yon know, but I um not going to permit myself to be led by any political party, but speaking for tho Stnte or Kentucky, which I rep resent, I want to say to you thut the last bit of power that the State which I represent has. is go ing to be used In an effort to have an honest election In Ohio county. We have n clean set of men around tills court hjuiso and many uround hero havo said we don't want this business I have re ferred to any more; and the Com monwealth of Kentucky Is going to help them have a clean election this tlmo. I'll read to you the Statutes pertaining to this matter which tho luw-iuukliig power of tills state has made. (Tho Statutes relative to bribery wore read.) That means thut any man convict ed under thut statute shall not only bo flued and sent to jail but shall be disfranchised. That statute Is going to be enforced In Oblo couuty, he- cause I know I can get 12 honest, God-rearing men who will stand up for what they think is right and It It were possible that I could fall In this, I could go to the surrdundlng counties nnd get a grand Jury that would help. This department of Jus tice which I represent has the povvcr behind It to enforco thesd laws, and It makes no difference who Is guilty ho will be punished, nnd it Is my purpose in making this statement that they wilt understand this in fid vu net becnusu any who may vio late these laws will have to he dealt with llfco wo ileal with any other man who violates thu law. And, gentlemen, this Is a govern ment by law not by forco or vio lence. Men who counsel disorder luive no place among hotfor-blo nion. We quarantine against deadly diseases, and la this tame manner we must deal with any .situation suggesting lawlessness: we should get these people whero they will not be a mnace to our good county. Wo will lurk theso pec;lp ur. not in their homes, hut in a place prepar ed for them. This will not be a child's play, but men dealing with men. Statutes are going to he en forced. I want to say this much to you gentlemen; I wanted to dla-' charge my duty to my fellow men I wanted to keep my good fellows in Ohio county out of trouble,-for it iff ii'Hi ! ter to ke-M them out tran to let them get in and then try to get him out. The power behrnd me Is of a hundred years standing up for law and order in the county of your fathers; It hns the power to put theso violators of tho law be hind the iron bars in the peniten tiary, apd even to put them in the elecfric chair If necessary. It is thix power that I represent, and I am supported by tho sturdy Judge who sits behind me, and a fearless Coun t t(.-.tney, and w ::e l-.f-lp of t'"' Rfi.e, men or tin couum h i-x poet to enforce-these Statutes. They know that the only hope for ju3tico Is to he had in tho enforcement of these laws, and they know that thin is due every man who tries to ba a law-abiding citizen. I am saying these things on my own responsibility and In i advance of any disorder, so that there may bo 'no misunderstanding about it with the public or with any individ ual. - Hugging Breuch of Peace.
