Itodical science has recently discovered
a little thing in tbe human body called tbe
vermiform appendix, the rudiment of a
former bowel now absolutely useless, bnt
very dangerous when it becomes swollen
with a sense of its own importance and
tries once more to be a bowel. The un
fortunate creature who possesses such an
ambitious vermiform appsudix gets what
is sailed appendicitis, and is quite apt to
die. Not long ago this senatorial district
was affected with appendicitis, aud called
to its relief a surgeon who out oil the ver
miform appendix; and now this con
gressional District, being smitten with tbe
same disease, calls aloud for that same
surgoon to cut off that same vermiform
appendix. He can do it, for he ha done it
once; be will do it if you say the word.
Fellow citizens of the Twelfth Congres
sional district, what do we want and
whom do we want in this anvrgencyr
some may say we want a man who lias
the gift of gab, au orator tbe glib
tongue and more glib conscience, whose
eloquence can cover a- large multitudo
of sins, make wrong eem right, the
worse appear the better reason. Ken
tucky is now straggling with the problem
whether it wants an orator. We do not
want an orator: the country does not
want au orntor; It boa got all the orators
it can stand. Our modern congress Is a
place for work not words, for worker
not word-mongers, for homely virtues not
honied phrases, for good old-fash ioued
gutnutlou not genius.
Then some may any we want a man who
does not affiliate with corporations, who
is not a capitalist, who has never perpe
trnt'd tbe heinous crime against society
of drawing dividends, of clipping coupons
and of fostaring enterprises, who it not
encumbered with the Accumulations of
his own hand aud brain iu tbe issue now
sharp drawn between poverty and prop
erty. I differ from these patriots. Con
gress ha had its till of Socialists and Popu
lists aud tramps. The duys of the dema
gogue are nuiubrred, the man who calls
hiiusalf tbe friend of tbe laboring man, but
befriends no one save himself, who stands
forth a the churaoiou of labor but. cham
pions no rausa save his own, who slanders
wealth that ha himself may live in luxury,
traduces cupitul that be liinwelf may ac
cumulate a surplus and denounce cor
porations that he himself may draw divid
ends on stocks, clip ceup.iis from bonds,
and rids upon a pass.
THK KI1AL SEKD.
We want the iuhu who hnviug come
from boneat poverty to bomwt property
knows and respectHthe rights nud respon
sibilities of both; wo want a man whose
heart is soft with sympathy with laboring
men because his hand is bard with labor,
nnd whose head is rii;bt. towards capital
because he joined the industry to earn
witb Hie brums to multiply uninueriiod
wealth; we want a man who will regard
the olllc as a public trust and not a priv
ate speculation; we want a tuau who will
do public service hecan e he is a ptiblio
servant taking public pay; wo want a man
who will dovote more energy to legislation
than to re-olectlon, prefer principle to
partisan advautuge, and give more thought
to public measures than to petty post
ofiices; we want a man and not a minikin;
we want a representative and not a mis
reprasentative; we want a Ropnblican
one not by luheritr.nco nor by Into con
version nor in exuberant youth; but a
veteran in the fuitu and service, who is
tried and true, who has fought nud bled,
aud tkarefore, if no other reason can pre
vail, must be preferred to other good nnd
worthy man whose time will come, but is
not yet, because it is tbe time of him I
name, Morgan B. W illiams.

THE PA VINO QUESTION
Iv'W that tbe qu hiioii of p .vitig is

L .eMUtij oi Up-riuvni in tne tuind-i of
ii.e puuliu is "vVli ,t kind o( pavement
is going to be used? " Tu I hihl'.ne
representative during the week just
closed was apprououud by several of
thp prominent tuxpsyers along Min
street relative to the paving quegtiuu.
They all agreod ou oue thing aud that
was that the colinoil should uot act in
accordance with tbe dictates of tneir
own conscience, but, either in conjunc
tion with the advisory committee oi iu
vite the opinion oi tbo property holders,
npon whom the footing of the bill de
volves, and ascertain what they desire.
If the mnjority favor paving witb as
phalt there will be uo need of unneces
sary delay exp rienoel in aceordlng
briok pave agents a bearing. If, on tne
contrary, tbe concensus of opinion is
iu favor of the brick pavement tbe
same rule holds good an in tuo former
instanoe. It is an undisputable faet
that the agents (or the dilldrent brick
paves look with disfavor ou the pave
represented by the asphalt agents and
vlee versa, Huoh beiug theuitse, the
eitizins sluoe they were consulted in
the raising of the loan required to do
the work, should be permitted to
say what kind of pavement should be
nssd. It tbe council would do this
there could be no suspicion or question
of doubt raised regarding their integ
rity iu the letting of such an expensive
contract Will they do it? We pause
for a reply.
