An immense crowd greeted Gov. Beck
ham at Hickman, Ky. A significant feat
ure of the meeting, showing the trend of
sentiment towards the Democracy, was
that Hon. R T. Tyler, who baa not affil
iated with the party for seven years, pre
sided and introduced the Governor to
Worse .and still more of it. The pos
tal scandal and fraud in connection with
tbe care of the Indians were enough for
the Republican National Adminiatraion
to contend with, but now comes news
that a stupendous "land gref ." has been
unearthed on the Pacific coast. The Or
egonian of Portland, Ore., thus tells
about thia latest Bcandal :
Tbe government has unearthed a stu
pendous "land graft" ring that has been
carrying on a business in avery well-timbered
area on the Pacific slope. TniB
ring has not only acquired "basb" lands
by "dummies" and other fraudulent
means; it has debauched State land of
ficials, making them hirelings or part
ners in the business. It has maintained
in tbe general land office at Washington
agents whose duties were to "leak" infor
mation about proposed reserves and
other profitable nutter; and by use of
money nas lDlluenceu placing of a re
boundaries to its own interests. The
central figures of thia conspiracy are said
to be in San Francisco. William J.
Burns, in the secret service in the Treas
ury Department, and A. B Hugh, Assis
tant Attorney General in the Interior
Department, were in Portland last week
gathering evidence that will help the
government in prosecutirg tbe instiga
tors of the conspiracy. They interview
ed a number of men who had been paid
for tbe use of their names in applications
for State school land; also certain notar
ies public who are accused of certifying
false and fraudulent affidavits.

Judge Humphrey, of Louisville,
Tells Why He Will Vote
Cclicves in Democracy's Principles and
Believes Democratic Hole is Best.
For the State.
O.ie of tbe atriM g features of the,
present campaign in Kentucky is the
number of Democrats who have "re
turned to their first love" and who are
now advocating the election of the State
and county ticketa. Not in many years
has the party presented as solid a front,
and the harmony that once more prevails
points unmistakably to a Democratic
victory on Nov. 3rd. The list of those
who have returned to tbe ranks includes
some cf the most prominent men in the
State. Notable among them ia Judge
Alex. P. Humphrey, one of Louisville's
foremost citizens and among the State's
leading lawyers. At a big Democratic
rally at Louisville thia week, Judge
Humphrey addressed a crowd of over
5,000 of his fellow citizens, and told why
he ia going to vote the Democratic ticket
Nov. 3rd. Among other things he Baid :
For some years past I bavo bceu most regular
ly Irregular In my Democracy. In this tlmo I
bavo found that there Is nothing my Republican
friends think so well of as a Democrat who Is in
dependent; and by Independence Is meant a
Democrat who votes tbe Republican ticket. It
Is this strict definition of independence, this
inability of good rule to work both ways, that
keeps Philadelphia solidly Republican while it
encourages the Citizens' Union In New York.
The secession from tbo Democratic party lu
Kentucky In the Presidential years of 189G and
1000, and in the State election of 1899, was not
caused by any personal pique or disappointed
ambition. It was largely of those who had
neither held nor wished to hold oflice; of those
who had been all their lives Democrats from
conviction, from sentiment and from prejudice.
All three of these things enter Into our politics.
We were at variance, and radically at variance,
with the platforms of 189(3 and 1900, and we re
garded the election law as the vital issue in the
State election of 1S99.
The election law has been replaced by another,
of which I shall speak in a moment; aud time
has tried and events rendered idle the differ
ences of 180G and 1000.
Under these conditions there is every reason
why those of us who believe In Democratic
principles aud wish for the success of the Demo
cratic party should resume our place in its
I do not uudertako to say that our election
law is yet an ideal law; but I know of no law In
any of the States which Is fairer to both political
parties than is tho law of Kentucky. Nor do I
(hid In the programme of tho Republican party
any definite proposition of amendment or change
In our method of registration and election.
Nor, considering what has been done by tbe
Democratic Legislature in this respect, do I find
any reason for thoso who have heretofore been
Democrats continuing outside of the party or
ganization on account of the Issues of 1899.
Again premising that I am now speaking to
those persons who bellevo that party govern
ment Is essential to a government by. the people,
and to those persons who have been Democrats
from conviction, it seems to me clear that we
cau no longer excuse ourselves from taking an
active part In the selection and election of
Speaking for myself, and asldefrom sentiment
and prejudice, I have two present and sufllclent
reasons for being a Democrat. I think tho tariff
should be radically reformed, and I think we
should prevent a recurrence of carpetbag gov
ernments In tho Southern States.
Tho tariff is becoming every day more and
moro an issuo of vital importance. The events
of the day ate pressing this Issue cloer and
closer upon us.
A good deal Is said in political platforms and
in campaign speeches regarding the evils of
large industrial combinations It is the freedom
of competition which is bounded and curtulled
by our larlfl'law.
The other question which has threatened the
South since tho closo of the war and will always
threaten it In the absence of a strong Democratic
party, is tho enforcement of tho Fifteenth
Amendment. There is hardly a writer upon
political science who docs not acknowledge that
the passage and enforcement of the Fifteenth
Amendment was the greatest political crime
ever committed against a free people. The
Democratic party has no sort of prejudice against
those who wcro supposed to bo protected by the
enactment. It owes to that race the duty of
education and enlightenment, and is perform
ing that duty up to tho limit of tho means of
tho people. Nor docs it fear what that race, if
left to itself, would do, But it Is Impossible for
us to forget tbe resttit of the combination of a
handful of white men. aided and abetted by tho
National Republican party, with its Ignorant
vote imposed upon the South rn States by the
passage of the Fourteenth and fifteenth Amend
ments. And It hai not been very many years
'since tbo Republican party endeavored to enact
a force blil which would bare compelled the
Southern States cither to subult again to uni
versal plunder or to Invite tbe Ntional Govern
ment to reoccupy (u territory aud govern ifby
the military power of the nation.
In regard to State and. local Issues the plat
forms of both parties promise the same things.
As for men, we are able to say; from the exper
ience of many years that the Democratic party
Is well fitted to govern us la our State, and local
affairs. 1 might recite one honorable and pros
perous Democratic administration after another,
and challenge a comparison as to the peace and
welfare of the State and city duriug any one of
them with the best Republican administration
that has at any time been given us.
Aud agalu, I repeat that there Is no good rea
son why a Democrat or a real Independent
should prefer to iutrust the affairs our State and
city government to tbe hands of tbe Republican
party rather than to the bands of the Democratic
Wo arc asked to vote the Republican party Into
power because it is the party of peace, of lw
and obedience to law, of conservatism, of order
and obedience to order. I might ask you to go
over with me the events of the winter of 1SW
1900, but they aro fresh In your memory. What-
ever anyone may think of the contests for tho I
offices, they were instituted in pursuance of law-1
ful right, before tribunals prescribed by statute ,
for their consideration., Do you call that man a
law-abiding citizen who obeys the law only '
when it is to his advantage? Who acquiesces In !
judgments which redound to his profit? After I
all had been done, that was done, and when tho
State of Kentucky was in tbe very throes of an
archy, some of the calmest, most conservative
and wisest of the members of tbe Republican
patty met with men of similar character In the
Democratic party. Terms of adjustment were
agreed to honorable to both parties. Feace and
order vmtld have been tlte fruit of this endeavor. What
happened f The compact vxu torn to fragment) by
thote in potcer, and countels eatt to the winds, and by
tchom t Xot by the Democrat!, but by those in control
of the Republican party.
