Judge Jolui 11 Graco
Courier Journal
While the field in tho race for appel
late judge in the First district was an
exceptionally good one made up of
four splendid lawyers tho convention
evidently mado no mistake when it
decided upon Judge John R Graco
as tho proper one to honor with a seat
upon the supreniet bench During
tho years ho has been presiding over
tho circuit court of his district Judgo
Graco has mado n record second to
that of no jurist in Kentucky antltho
records in tho office of the court of
appeals boar out tho assertion that he
has been reversed lew than any other
judge in Kentucky That too in
the face of tha fact that among the
Jawyers who have praetJetd before
ablest in tho stateOwere quick to de
tect crrow in theTrccoM and possessed
of ample knowldgo to Jiave them
corrected jft
Not only is Judgo Gracean excel
lent judge but ho is a splondid man
in every way and numbers among bis
friends almcBt every man with whom
he has como in contract Amiabloand
lovable in his disposition and manners
ho nevertheless has all tho firmness
requisite for so high a position and is
fully alive to tho dignity and respo
rfibility of tke position Ono of hi
greatest traits is his phinness and
simplicity and a moro approachablo
man can not be found anywhere In
addition to his knowlcdgo of tho law
he bos a most profound eenso of jus
tice and right which after all is the
greatest of qualities ina judge and a
moro scrupulously honest or conscieu
tious man does not live His friends
expect great things of him on tho su
preme bench and itgjes without say
ing that he will not disappoint them
Physically Judjo Grace is a large
powerful man weighing moro than
200 pounds ai d being splendidly pro
portioned atd is capable of doingan
enormous amount of work His en
tire familiarity with tho statutes and
decisions of the state will mako his
labor all the easier and enable him
to do much more than ordinary men
with half tho work and worr
It has been demonstrated that the
Louisiuna sugar planters who are
threatening to desert the Democratic
party because its representatives at
Washington abolished tho sugar boun
ty can make moro money from an
acre of sugar cane without any boun
ty whatever than is reaized by the
wheat corn and tobacco farmer from
an acre of land If there is no mis
take about this those people havo ne
ver learned even the rudiments of De
mocracy They have not reached
baker in the old blue back speller
the idea that money should be collec
ted from millions of people fn tho
form of taxes to support a few thou
sand sugar plantersj makes one una
voidably think of a pour house and
things of that kind but when it ap
pears that these sugar planters aro al
ready makiug more money than the
people the government taxes for their
benefit then tho actual bent of the
mind is to think that tho people who
stfbnnt to such a taxation have not
reached the A B C of common sense
aud never heard of tho Jaw of selfde
fence of self preservation
Tho great power of tho present day
and generation is the injunction It
is becoming more like brute force than
the edicts of equity One Judgo Jen
kins laid down the doctrine that men
may not hitjtrVrinnsatffuct6ry
eraploymJyWen their quitting is
likely to embarrnSB tho operations of a
railroad and that there is no legal
right to strike that the courts may
compel men to continue at work at
unsatisfactory wages Such doctrine
as this is about as baneful as anarchy
itself and it is gratifying to note that
the higher courts repudiate it and
tho ruling of Judge Jenkins goes for
naught Every man is free to quit
his job when he pleases and the fact
that his quitting may inflict embarras
ment in no wy impairs his right to
quit but he must use neither force
nor threats persecution nor intimida
tion towards employes who do not
join them nor any device to molest
hinder alarm or interfere with others
who tako or desire to take his place
Capitalists are investigating the
practicability of building a railroad
from Marion to Smithland and on to
Paducah The investigation so far is
only of a superficial character a
general preliminary survey of the field
at long range Whilo nothing may
ever come of the project less inviting
enterprises have terminated success
fully Such a road would go through
a splendid country a country which
is only partially developed a country
with great agricultural resources and
a country tbatcertainly has great mi
neral possibilities A railroad built
through that territory would make it
blossom liko the rose of Sharon It
occurs to us that Crittenden Springs
Levias or Sheridan Salem Hampton
and drowsy old Smithland would re
joice beyond measure and sing togeth
er liko tho stars of the morning ven
in the contemplation of such a thing1

September 30 1852
Tho petition alleges that tho par
ties sold him all of the crop of tobacco
dt 1892 owned by them and storedin
divers factories throughout tho Green
river country which crop was estima
ted to bo 2700000 to 2800000
pounds which the two firms agreed to
stem and prize in proper order and
condition tor shipment to tho English
market and Jarvis agreed to pay
therefore 11 centsper pound for tho
strips on presentation of bills of lad-
Sixteen hundred and ono hogsheads
of 199771 pounds under the contract
w o shipped and 81978400 wa
paid by Jarvis to defendants boforo
tho tobacco reached England
Tho petition avers that tho tobacco
thus shipped did not come up to that
contracted for but on tho contrary
was mixed with hulk heated mouldy
and unsound tobacco and a consider
able part of it was smalls rati
sweeping and had been carelessly
handled and prized In short it was
much damaged and inferior and was
n6t worth as much on tho English
market as tho tobacco contracted for
by 25000 The suit was brought by
