The bulletins fetched in by the
United States mails from our soldier
boys in the night rider war by our
special war correspondent are very
encouraging The people of the
bluegrass are showing signs of awak
ening to their full duty as citizens
and the civilizing influence of our r
mountain soldier boys is beginning
to be felt and it is now hoped that
the cruel war will soon be ended
Only a few weeks ago the bluegrass
nightriders were burning barns and
murdering defenseless persons and
scraping tobacco beds and last week
lone of our soldier boys shot off his
gun on the public highway down in
Bracken county and the night riders
apparently were so frightened that
they made a holloa that could be
heard from the mouth of Sandy to
Mills Point It is true that it is a
disgrace for our intelligent citizen
ship in the bluegrass of Kentucky to
be placed in a position that foreic
soldiery is necessary to preserve law
and order and protect lives and prop
Willsoby n
byshould have exhausted every pacific
means to bring about peace before
ntsending in soldiers It is true that
he has made a serious mistake in
placing atthe head of these soldiers

to work with a hearty will to assist I
those who are now trying to put
down lawlessness and restore peaceJ
instead of criticizing we think itJ
would not be long before there I
would be no need for the soldiers 1
But we do not hope for this at once
