No doubt he has discovered that
the office holder is plenty good
enough for him

We will have cheap sugar sever

session of Congress is called by
the incoming President the laws

As a matter of convenience Mr
Cleveland may yet decide to selec
men for his Cabinet outside of New

The interval between this time

The friends of H Clay King are
seeking to obtain a pardon for that
notorious criminal and are courting
Governor Buchanan to that end
How successful they will be is
yet to be learned While Ten
nessees Granger Governor is a
man of a peculiar record it is not
thought he will abuse his power
by granting a pardon in this case
A pardon to King and his return
to Memphis would surely bring
about a lynching
Where is the Kentuckian who
will not resent the imputation that
Kentucky is a six cent State Yet
our solons at Frankfort by
their actions imply doubt as to
this valuation With 1800000
people within the boundaries of the
Commonwealth we cannot get our
selves taxed six cents each that we
can be represented at the Worlds
Fair Our Legislature calmly de
fers action till next year utterly
indifferent to the fact that the
greatest opportunity the State ever
had to exhibit its wonderful re
sources and induce people to make
homes with us is almost hopelessly
lost But the people will remem
ber you gentleman from the con
scientious official who has dis
graced the State by withholding
the original appropriation to the

Despite Mr Clevelands speech
at the Reform Club dinner a
speech which iwas expected to
make everything clear there is
evidently a great deal of doubt ns
to what are the principles or other
forces which control the Demo
cratic party of this day If the
Chicago platform and Senator
Mills are to be believed the Dem
ocratic party is firmly committed
to free trade If Senator Gorman
and many other prominent Demo
crats are sincere there will be a
good deal of protection in the in
coming administration In this
connection it may not be amiss to
ask what Mr Cleveland meant by
saying the people would surely
revenge themselves upon those who
deceive or betray them If as
Senator Mills asserts the Novem
ber victory was due to a popular
desire for free trade it will be de
ception or betrayal from this point
of view should Mr Clevelands
leanings toward semi protection be
reflected in legislation
Secretary Tracys report of
events and progress and develop
ment in the Navy Department has
elicited from Democratic as well
as Republican sources a great
volume of sincere and fervent com
pliment He is so generous in
recognizing the achievements of
his predecessors so cordial in ac
knowledging the zeal the ability
and the devotion of his subordin
ates and finally he so clearly and
so unostcntiously sets tortu the
splendid record of the past four
years that party lines arc forgotten
in a spontaneous outburst of
patriotic pride Mr Tracy has
given us a brilliant and memorable
chapter in the history of the
American navy The record has
been as creditable to himself as it
has been reassuring and gratifying
to the country He does not
claim to have done more than con
tinue the expansion set on foot by
his predecessors but his modesty
and magnanimity in that respect
will not blind us to the real value
and importance of the service he
he has rendered The nation will
have little to wish for if Benjamin
FTracys successor shall in 1896
be able to point to as splendid a
