VOLUME XXI. MAYSVILLE, KY., TUESDAY, OCTOBER 14, 1902. NUMBER 277. JAMES N. KEHOE. His Splendid Record Should In sure His Return to Congress. Brief Resume of His Work as a Member of the National House. A Deserved Tribute From a High Source to the Ninth District's Able and Eloquent Young Representative. HIS MOTTO: "EQUAL RIGHTS TO ALL, SPECIAL PRIVILEGES TO NONE." As the time is n--ar .it hand when the completed over a million dollars, and voters of this district will be called upon hie return to Uougtess means that they to determine who shall represent the j will hecome laws. He reported favorably district in Congress for the next two yeas, seventeen ddf-rent meas-ures from com the Bulletin takes this occasion to call mirtees of which be was a mamber last attention to the record of our pteseut. I se'-skin.amonsrthf m being bills to provide Congressman,.!. N. Kehoe; and in doing j for payment of Keotnck) 's war claim debt so we not only feel that he is entitled to an endorsement, but we have every con fidence that he will receive it. And we have reasons for the faith that is in us. His record for fidelity to official duties is unsurpassed. Upon his election to Con gress he virtually retired from the prac tice of law and all private business en terprises, and has given his entire time to public duties. Congress has been in aesBion seven mouths since he became a member, and he never missed a day's at tendance at its sessions during the entire time. He was a member of four com mittees, and never missed a session of any of them. In recognition of hie abil ity and fidelity to duty Speaker Hender son appointed him on four important committees, an honor enjoyed by only one other Democratic member of the last session of Congress. He was once appointed to represent his State, and an other time to represent the minority side of the House, an honor conferred upon no other minority member during the last seaaion and seldom, if ever be fore, upon a new member. Ten bills, introduced by Mr. Kehoe, were passed by Congress, signed by the President and became laws, a record certainly unsurpassed and possibly not equalled by another new member. Among these bills was an appropriation of 1350,000 for improvement of the Big Sandy river, 121,000 for erection of an ice pier in the Ohio river, $40,000 for erec tion of a public building at Mayaville, establishment of United States Court at Catlettsburg, for the economical print ing of seed franks, and bills increasing pensions of deserving soldiers. He has also secured a favorable report upon a bill appropriating $25,000 for the estab lishment of a fish hatchery in this dis trict, and a favorable report upon a bill to establish an army post site in Boyd and Greennp counties, to cost when of $1, '.'50,000, the claim of the First Bap tist Church-of Cartersville, Georgia, the Christian Church of Henderson, Ky., OJdf-llows Lodge of Gallatin, Tenn., Ma eon Lodge i Cyntbiana, Ky., Baptist Church of FlminKshurg, Ky., and sev eral bills for henefit of individuals resid ing in this and other districts. Among the other important bills introduced by him and still pending in Congress is one for the appropriation by the govern ment of the sum of $100 for the funeral expenses of indigent soldiers, the bill providing for such payment in every such case. Certainly no American citi zen is mean enough to want to see an old soldier buried by public subscription, or go to a potter's field, yet this is what has happened to several of them, but will never happen again after Mr. Ke hoe's bill becomes a law. It is a just measure and should have been enacted into a law before this. If returned to Congress Mr. Kehoe will see that it is passed. By the passage of Mr. Kehoe's bill regulating the printing of seed franks, members have been saved much trouble, and the government will here after save annually more than his salary. Hundreds of old soldiers and their dependents have been personally bene fited by the interest taken and work done in their cases by Mr. Kehoe at the Pension Office and in Congress. No man could have been more faithful to them or more successful in his efforts, and cer tainly they will not fail to show their appreciation of his services, by rallying to his support in November. The old soldier who fails to vote for him stands in his own light. No man, woman or child ever wrote to him on any subject who did not receive a prompt reply and satisfactory attention. Brilliant, brainy and attentive to duty, initiative in his work and successful in what he undertakes, temperate, moral and pure in character he is indeed an ideal public servant and his equal has seldom, and his superior never been seen in Washington. A native born Ken tuckian, the builder of his own fortune and greatness, the father of an interesting family, a trustworthy friend, an intense American, a leading citizen and withal a kindly, charitable man, it is no wonder that he is the leader of his party and idol of bis people, and that he shall and will be returned to Congress there is no doubt. The people are not often given a chance to elect such men to public places. He has been tried and found unusually competent and worthy. He is an elo quent, captivating and fascinating speak er, and the first time he spoke after entering Congress attracted national at tention, the Washington City Times pay ing him the following compliment: "The discussion of the Nicaraguan Canal bill in the House, late yesterday afternoon, under the five minute rule, afforded opportunities for several im passioned flights of eloquence, none of which was listened to with more atten tion than that of Representative James N. Kehoe, Democrat, of the Ninth Ken tucky district. It was his maiden effort. He wanted the word 'ownership' sub stituted for 'control.' So pleased were the members with Mr. Kehoe's style of oratory that they allowed him to trespass three minutes beyond the alloted time under the rule of the House." Upon Mr. Kehoe's renomination, Hon. Champ Clark, of Missouri, one of the oldest, ablest and most observant mem bers, in a letter written for the Ameri can Press Association said, among other equally complimentary things: "The Hon. James N. Kehoe, of the Ninth Kentucky district, has been unani mously renominated, an honor worthily beBtowed. Kehoe is one of the brightest young men in the House, an indefatigable worker, a most excellent public speaker and a Democrat without guile." But his worth is in his work and he believes more in work than in words, and in practical results than reputation for brilliancy. All of his votes in Congress have been for the upbuilding and in ternal improvement of America, and for laws meaning "equal rights to all and special privileges to none," and against trusts, national extravagance, wrong and favoritism of every character, and at all times doing battle for the people and their interest. Compare his record, worth and ability with that of his opponent. Mr. Castner lias served a session in the Kentucky Legislature. What did he do? He never passed a single bill, never made a single committee report, never had a word to eay on any subject and introduced but one bill, (which had been, in substance, introduced two weeks before by another member, and it went to sleep in the committee. What a brilliant record in Mr. Kehoe's case and what a blank in Mr. Castner's. ? Why ehould any man heeitate to vote for Mr. Kehoe in this race? The people of the district will do themselves an injustice if they do not re turn him to Congress with an over whelming majority. ATTEMPTED PIBA0Y. Mutinous Crew Kndoavor to Seize and Nat) a ship. San Francisco, Oct. It. The little steamer Dos Hcrmanos whs s nt out on a cruise among sumo of the south ern islands hy a trading firm a few days before the transport Shermii left Manilla.

What the ex queen's attitude is toward the candi dates for delegates to congress is un certain. She has great influence with the natives and if gives advice to vote for Wilcox or Prince Cupid it wlu practically mean the election of the one she favors. Prince Cupid, who is her favorite nephew, is the Republi can candidate. Indian Uprising Feared. Phoenix. Ariz... Oct., II.
