edtoibe in myt way To use the
words of my friend Sam Jones It is
the hit dog that hollers If any
bodyhas heard any yelping around
town since my laBt argument in favor
of truth and morality in pdlitics he
may reasonably conclude that some
bodys purp has been hit- Further
more I want it understood that in the
event there is anyfighting to do as a
result of my fearless utterances I
have made an arrangement by which
i I am relieved of the responsibility
thereto appertaining The editor of
the Kentuckian who is usually pres
ent to report the proceedings of this
Club has kindly consented to as
sume responsibility for any provoca
tive matter that may get into his re-
port Therefore if any remarks I
may make from time to time should
inflame any belligerent with a desire
to shed blood will some member of
the Club please inform said disturber
of the peace before hostilities begin
that J am busy and that my represent
tativeinallbellicos6 matters cariv be
lound at the Kentuckian office We
will now proceed to business
The petitions presented at the last
meeting were taken up and acted
upon s
Col Jeff Morris on afavorable re
portrfrom the Sparse Plumage com
mittee was admitted and instructed
-in the secret work
l typol Green Champlin
pitied for one year for shaving his
hepd was re instated
CqI Walter Southall whose peti
tion was referred to the Circular
Clearings committee was taken -in
and given the grip and passwords
Col Crit Anderson on a favorable
- recommendation from the Barren
Landscapes committee was given the
thilSUand highest degree Col An
derson is an unusually fine subject
having discarded the use of hair en
tirely excepting an almost invisible
lambrequin just above his collar
Col Dave Wiley was fined 1 and
sentenced to spend his Christmas in
Nortonville for using snake oil on his
head last summer
Under the order of new business
Col Bob Wooldridge offered a reso
lution tendering to President Cleve
land who by-the-way is a
man at heart the services of
the entire membership of the Hop
kinBville Baldheaded Club in the
event of a war with Venezuela
This patriotic resolution brought a
number of timid members to their
feet and several pairs of knees were
seen to knock together
Col Walter Kelly said he was in
favor of all of the members going ex
cept himself He had just rented a
new office for next year and couldnt
possibly get away for three or four
Col Lem McKee said he was like
Henry Watterson he didnt care
what nappened so it didnt happen to
iim He couldnt think of going be
cause he didnt believe -it would be
altoc other safe for a man of his robust
L physique to get out in iront or a lot
ft of loaded guns
H r Col Y1 Cooper said tnis tnmg or
lighting witn modern armaments was
no childs play With these new
tangled guns that shoot a hundred
times a minute somebody would be
pfetty apt to get hurt and he was
afraid it might be him He would
have to be excused from going
Col Buck Leavell said ne couldnt
fiffhtuntilJbe eot real mad and as he
ijyiad nothing against the English he
gi a aencaoy in Killing mem xe
idesHehadbeeu -elected city
urerand tbetown couldnt spare mm
Col Wooldridge had been mani
festing great impatience while these
discouraging remarks were being
made and bb soon w he could catch
the eye of the President he sprang to
his feet and delivered an impassioned
address that has not been equaled
for its burning eloquence since the
famous speech of Col Claggett in
favor of the abolition of the ridicu
lous custom of wearing hair on the
outside of the head He threw hiin
1 self into the breach t and with eyes
1 flashing fire and his voice trembling
with sutroressed emotion spoke as
r I am ashamed or trie cowardice 1

There was not much use attemptin
