The first attempt at intimida
tion was exposed by tho Courier
Journal which gave a sectional
account of an interview between
Capt J S Williams and
Speaker Dlandford in regard to
issuing the writ for holding an
election in Nelson County to fill
the vacancy caused by the death
of Isaac Wilson The speaker
called attention to the matter by
rising to a question of privilege
stating that while he might have
had some conversation with some
gentlemen in reference to the
matter he did not know Mr
Williams aqd did not use any hot
wordsand did not hear any threat
ening language Perhaps if the
Speaker had known Mr Will
iams he would have given more
credit to the fiery language attrib
uted to him because the Speaker
would not issue the writ imme
diately and prior to the funeral of
the deceased member In the
light of subsequent events it is
probable tfiat Capt Williams
arranged the interview and en
deavored to pick a quarrel as the
correspondent who was more fa
miliar with the antecedents of the
doughty Captain had more than
hinted 1
At this time the Democrats were
laboring under the impression
that the writ should be issued un
der the provisions of the old law
and in their zeal and haste to elect
his successor came near failing to
pay respect to the memory of the
deceased member but when tho
Speaker referred them to the
precedent established by Gov
Brown in the caso of tho vacancy
caused by the resignation of A J
Carroll of calling the election un
der the provisions ot the Australian
ballot law the denunciation of the
Speaker ceased
After the drawing of the Com
mittees in the contested olection
cases in the House tho Courier al
luded to tho presence of Jack
Chinn and im Williams and
Btatcd that their mission was in
tho interest pf Blackburn to pro
vent the unseating of Democrats
and seating of Republicans and in
the event of retaliation by the Sen
ate to keep the unseated Senators
frpra voting
rtfftr tSft3
Oh fan iG Mr Brotmon pre
sented the following resolution in
tlju Scnato which wits adopted
Witi unAs it liny lu cn published
and openly chnracd tlmt certain
I Senators now occuminii seats in
tlun body are ineligible by reason
ot holding incotnpntablo offices
and also by reason ol Having tor
fcitcd their office of Senator by ar
ceptinR and using free passes upon
railroads wow do it
Rcsoiatd That a special com
mittee composed of Win Goobcl
G S Pulton Rozcll Woissonger
Fenton Sims and C J Bronston
nil Democrats be and the ramo
is now created and said committed
is now empowered anil directed to
investigate and determine whether
any Senator or Senators arc ineli
ciblo to soata now held by them
and to report by resolution what dis
position shall no matio oi sucn
Senators In order to make
ouch arid tihetive such inv estivation
said committee summon senators
and witnesses with books and pa
pcrs and when so summoned they
shall bo subject to the law and its
penalties now provided in such
cases Said tommittee shall have
the right to rehorl at any time and
prettdente shall bo given to said re
port over any other business
Thon on Jan 20th an agreement
was entered into that neither
House nor Scnato should unseat
mombors until a successor to Isaac
Wilson should bo chosen and
sworn in or until Feb 6th and
that Senator Stcge would not
vote for the Republican caucus
nominee until that time and the
Democrats should not try to elect
a Senator during the same period
When tho contested olection
cases were reported to tho House
and the clerk attempted to read
the majority report Tho Times
describes the affair thus it re
quired some time for its reading
Some of its sections excited sneers
and laughter h the Democrats
When the reading was done Mr
Swinford moved to have tho report
printed and made a special order
for next Wednesday March 4th
He argued that he had not heard
the report read as one reason why
it should bo printed Mr How
ard Rep took the floor and was
pretending to demand an imme
diate consideration of the question
and said if the gentleman had not
heard it read it was because there
was an organized attempt to make
such a noise as would prevent its
being hoard Mr Phelps of
Lexington jumped to the floor and
wanted to know if the gentleman
incjuded him in such an intimation
and if he did that he stated was
untrue Mr Howard made some
sort of sassy remark and then the
wildest scene of the session en
sued Mr Phelps jumped to his
feet and so did Mr Swinford and
shaking their fists at Howard
yelled False Untrue You
know it is I denounce you
The Post says when the news
that the Republicans had brought
uo tne werncr inompKins case
IcadcrS thcie was au instant
ering in the lobbies and threats
soon began to be heard of what
would be done in case a member
was unseated Col Jim Williams
remarked significantly in the pres
ence oflhe Hon Zach Phelps and
Burton Vance of Louisville and
others that he would bet Si 00 to
1 that if any Democrat was un-
seated in the House hh successor
would never jet in to take his
place and in describing the al
tercation between the members
the Post further says Then fol
lowed the liveliest scenes that have
been witnessed in the House and
a riot in which it looked like a
personal conflict would ensue and
bloodshed follow Mr Phelps
had a large pocket knife in his
hand open and pointing directly
at Mr Howard andsaid such a
statement was infamously false
Mr Swinford also arose and de
nounced the statement The
Speaker rapped for order The
galleries and lobbies became
demonstrative The members
arose to their feet tho House was
beyond control and bedlam
reigned Mr Howard stood at his
desk cool and immovable There
is no doubt that many pf those
present were fixed for trouble and
it is fortunate that cooler heads
succeeded in preventing trouble
Several days elapsed between
the report of the committees and
the vote upon them pending
which Jack Chinn and Jim
Williams re inforced by Eph
Lillard another Blackburn re
tainer of similar notoriety were
very much in evidence in the cor
ridors and lobbies ottlic capital
and the first named usually occu
pied a seat in the House and durt
ingtbe Joint bession 1 ins case
was decided in favor of tho sitting
Democratic member and the ver
dict was not considered revolu
tionary The next case was ar
gued by tho parties themselves
Mr Dunlap making a very able
and earnest appeal to tho House to
give him the scat held by Mr
Kauffman which ho said tho evi
dence clearly showed him to bo
entitled to On Saturday March
7th Mr Kauffman addressed the
House in support of his right to
retain his scat and the caso was
continued till Monday On this
Saturday occurred the attempt to
cause a 3tampede to Blackburn
when the nttpmpts as admitted by
Mr Violott wore made to intimi
date the Sound Monoy Democrats
and force them to vote for Black
burn On Monday Senator Weis
sengcrdicd and very little
ncss was transacted and the con
tested election caso was postponed
till Wednesday by which time
either through fear or favor Mr
Dunlap had sont to tho Speaker
his written withdrawal from tho
contest The evidence being all
before tho House and each party
having been heard it was decided
that a voto should be taken and
Mr Kauffman was tlcclarod not to
havo been legqlly elefcted and that
Mr DnnllP was entitled to it
Tho Courier Journal gives a
graphic account Of wltaj followed
Tho Democratic majority in
tho Senate retaliated and by revo
lutionary proceedings removed Dr
A D James Muhlenberg
County and Dr Claiborne J Wal
ton of Hart county on the ground
of disqualificatibri
The scenes attendant upon and
following the unseating- df th6
three metnbers almost fulfilled the
gravest fears of sober minded
The Republicans had threatened
al nlorjfthat these unsoatcU Sen
ators vould go intoUhc joirtt ses
sion and vote anyway Certain
Blackburn men had sworn that
they should never get into the
joint session alive Assoon as
the unseating hadbccn done and
the Senators started for Ihe Houso
to take part in the joint session
the hour for trouble seemed fo
have come
The lobby separating the Senate
door from the House door was
made almost impassable by a
crowd ot Republican and Demo
cratic rowdies and at the critical
moments not less than twenty
stood with hands on the Handles ot
the weapons in their hip pockets
The noisb was like thc roar and
din of an angry mob4
Senator Bronston stood at the
head of the Democrats at the
HtfusddooValid tYcmblihtf frorrr
czcitcmcnt shouted to thqsc at
Jhand to keep out tho unseated-
Curses and oaths echoed from-
the dome of the Library -building
and as tho mob swayed in the di
rcctionof the door pf the Retire
scntatives hall tne feeling and
excitement Was so intense that
those who were not participants
bid behind cvory door sill or
corner to avoid possible dangor
Many Republicans rushed
through the crowd demanding
that the militia be called out
though at the same moment one of
their leaders declared that -they
too had from fifteen to twenty
lighting men on hand each with
a pistol and ready to use it The
Governor sent to Mrs Day the
Librarian the suggestion that she
call on the Mayor for the assist
ance of the police and have the
rowdies and bullies of both par
ties cleared from the lobby The
Chief of Police and two men soon
arrived but lost a conflict should
be precipitated thoy were in
structed to lay hands on no man
until weapons were produced or
violence attempted
Dr James had slipped into the
House by the- way -ok the cloak
room before the joint -session be
gan He ran out ol the benatc at
1145 oclock as soon as he saw
that his name was one of the two
in the report of tho Investigating
Committee Dr Walton tried to
get out but was prevented by
DoorkeeperTyler Jack Chinn and
uapi jim vviuiams Air uron
ston was with them He and Dr
Walton had some heated words
and would probably put it througliiSome onc said that Dr Walton
trot to the ears of the BlackburrX Is an old4uanand Mr Bronston
wun an oain aenouncep me
publicans ahdVlittle later in the
House ordered Mr Burnam to
leave himdeclaringrthat lie did not
want another Republican to speak
to him Mr Burnam said Go
to hells -
But theso are moderate incidents
compared with scores--that occur
red The excitement shifted from
point to point in the corridor and
houses punctuated with paths de
nunciations and wild gesticulations
Before leaving the Senritechdmber
and just as the Clerk announced the
vote ai to o in lavorot unseating
the twp Republicans 4hc Demo
crats and Republicans got their
members together on different sides
of the chamber and the former
shouted while many of the latter
hissed derided and denounced It
seemed that violence would begin
even before the expected trouble
at the door of the House Bron
ston urged on the Democrats his
jury paling his face andcausirig
his whole frame to tremble while
his wild denunciations were severe
and many times uncalled for He
completely lost control of himself
and the fact was noted by the
Dcmocragas well as by the Re
publicans The other Blackburn
leaders wero fTrriif but more calm
and less sevcrcsomo of thern seek
ing earnestly to quiet the confusion
and restore order
Yet with all the threats with all
the oaths with all the revolution
ary procedures iihdfTulingstiiis
uiubi exciting session mat was
probably ever witnessed in tlic
Kentucky General Assembly passed
off without personal violence1
Senator Blackburn wasin the
Senate cloakroom And wwiifih tlic
shouts and curses ofthomobat the
door of the House showed that a
fight was imminent he ran through
the crowded corridor to stand by
his friends Several caught and
tried to draw him back but he
jerked loose and with kindled eye
rushed into the mob
The action of the Republicans
in unseating Mr Kaujman alter
the contest had been withdrawn by
Mr Duhlap is declared by tho
Democrats to be an outrage greater
even than they had expected It
was clearly shown by Messrs Car
roll Forec Robbins and others
that no contest was pending since
the withdrawal of it by Mr Dunlap
who stood down stairs and in the
uejencc of several witnesses said
le was surprised at Speaker Stan
fords ruling by which he permit
ted the Republicans to turn out
Mr Kaufman lie said that he
would not allow himself to bo used
as a tool and if anybody was killed
lie did not want it said that ho had
ridden into office over dead bodies
Ho declared that under no circum
stances would he accept tho office
and cast a vote
The next move was that Mrs
Day tho Librarian palled upon the
Mayor to send p ppljce forco to
keep order and exclude from the
tho corridors of tho Capital those
who were there aqing without au
thority and for thepurpofie pf
hi s
ating n disturbance This proved
ineffectual and then the sheriff was
called upon but ntiuuicd to be pow
erless to prevent tho distinguished
friends of Mr Blackbtirnwho wore
Acting its sentinels at the doors from
holding their posts In tho House
Mr bpced moved thq following

Resolved That it is the sonsQ of
tliisbody that the Capital suotild
bo moved to a place - where order
nnd protection will bo guaranteed
Mr Bronston in tho Scnato of
fered a resolution as follows
Information having been received
that W O Bradley Governor of
Kentucky- hasdircctedtho Sheriff
of Franklin CoUnty to enter the
cloak room of tho Scnato of Ken-
4ucky and exclude all persons
therefrom nnd that whilst this

the Sergeant of Arms of the Senate
prevailed upon tho clerk of that
bodyto swear in as his assistants

while acting in that cnpacitynnado

Rumors were current on the street
that the Governor was to bo ar
rested and that telegrams had been
sent to other cities by tho Demo
crats to have quotas of men noto
rious for their fighting propensi
ties sent to Frankfort Affidavits
were made by the President of the
Senate and the Speaker of- the
House that seemed to be borne
out by tho fact that instead of any
effort being rqadc to exclude- those
who were reported to be unlaw

Ibo city and made an assay of lead and
zinc ore taken from tbe Kentucky river
bills in the neighborhood of Athens Fay
ette county He pronounced tbe ore ex
ceedingly rich and thought a paying vein
existed in tbat locality Since this state
ment became public every able bodied
male citizen about Athens has been pros
pecting in the hope of discovering tbeIead
of the vein referred to by Ihe Kansas lead
expert but so far their efforts have been
futile Tbeir research however has do-
veloped tbat theroislcad and zinc ore in
great quantities In tbat neighborhood but
is not qnito rjch enough to encourage tbe
organization of a company to develop the
mines Tho search for the rich vein will
be kept up until the wholo section is gone
