VERMONT WATCHMAN & STATE JOURNAL WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBEIll, 1899. 4 WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 1, 1809. AHIHtTR ROPE8, Oouoral Edltor. Tlio SKuntiun in Kcntucky. Untll quito recont llmca Kcntucky was tho "dark and bloody ground" of tho Hourbon Deuiocracy. Its mnjorlty for tho Democratic tickot, in Stato or national clcctlons, was as cortain as Vorruont'a for tho Ilopubllcans. Ex-posuro to tho dialntregating lnfluoncoB that followcd tho collapao of tho Con-fodoracy did its bonign work on thls adamantino majority. It bogan lo crumblo and in tho last national olcc-tion its electoral voto was east for Mc-Kinloy, a Itopubllcan Govornor and Logisloturo wcro choson, a numbor of Ropubllcans worc elcctcd to tho nation-al Ilouao of lleprosontalivca, and ono Unitod Statcs Sonator is a Ropublicin. A rovoiuuou so compioto naa nreu a countcr rovolution for tho rostoration of tho Stato to tho Democrats. Tho conacqucnco is that Kontucky is iu a atatc of political fcrraeut unuBual ovon in that community of violent political commolions. Tho hoad of tho Democratic party thore, and its candidato for Govornor, is William Goobol, a pcrson of foroign parontago, and not ovon a nativo of Kontucky. II o ia tho hoad of tho party and ita candidato for Govornor by vir tuo of docds and mcthods of tho politi cal highwaymon, bold and unscrupu lous boyond all prccodent. Hia char actor is illustrated by tho killing of John Sandford eoveral ycars ago in Covington. Sandford waa in Goebel'a way. Goebel firat attacked hia victim, who waa of irroproachablo charactor, by an infamous publication in a uowa- paper. Then, with a cockod rovolver ho wont into tho atreolB, put himsolf in Sandford'a way, and whon tho lattor aakod him if ho was responslblo for tho pnblication of thc brutal chargo, Goobol promptly rcplied ycs, drow his weapon from his coat pocket, and whon Sandford made a motion in sclf dofonac Bhot him in tho hcad. That is the kind of tnan Goobel ia. Nominally a gold Damocrat, in this guiso be secured tho confldence of Senator Carliele, undor his patronago obtaincd a eeat in tho Stato convention of hia party in 1890, and then betraycd hia aponsor by voting for the frceailver candidatea for offlce and for the reaolu tion pre8enting Blacfeburn as th choico of tho Democrats of Kentucky for the presidoncy. Mr. Carlislo ox posed thi3 treachery, aud othor proni incnt Democrats have siuce announced that they cannot aupport a man so dls honorablo aa ia Gocbcl. Thia ia Goobel in miniature. After hia induction into Kontucky politica aa tho prophet of Domocracy, ho drew and Becured the onactment of tho Goe obi mvv wmcu ia aeacrioea as a moas uro "to establish fraud under tho pro tection of the law of tho Stato." It providea for tho clection by the Legia laturo of three State olcction commia eionera who hold ofllco for four yeara j.nese otucora appoint tho county boards, and tho latter tho precinct oiection boarda. The Stato board may ai any moment removo tlm nnnniw boards, and the latter may do the Bamo with the precinct boarda. Eycu aftor tho vote3 havo been east tho Stato board may removo election olllcors who may uot provc to be subaervieut tools, and turn ovcr tho ballot boxcs to men who can bo trusted to count in accord-ance with the party necesBitioa. The de-cision of the Imrd of cauvaBsers is flnal. No appeal ia po33ible, no roviow can be ordered. By nnothor proviaion of the hw, if a canvasaing board does not repott within ten daya the voto of tho county or precinct may bo thrown out. Thus, if a Rjpublican ounty haa a majority of 10,000, and tho rcst of tho State is Ddmocratic by G.OOO, tho can-vaesing board, by withholding tho re-turns from tho Rjpublican county tcn dayB, may hand over tho election to the Democratic candidato. Thia ten daya' proviBion ia apparently dcsigucd to bocomo oporativo whon tho nxl. gonciea of the situation aro too preas-iug oven for Damocralic unscriipiilouB-ness In the raattor of counting out Re-publicans. Thus the Goebel law takes nochancea. Under it, if ita author cannot bo elcctcd Govornor by a fair count, ho has tho machinory of a law of hia own devising by moana of which ho will bo ablo to count himBelf in if ho daroa to attempt to dofraud tho popular will, and if tho good citizona of Kentucky Bubmit to fraud. Hut thoy aro organizlng and, it ia aaid, armlng to resiat tho conspirator. Thus arraod to mako his election Bure, Goobel Becured, by charactoriatic means, hia nomlnation to tho ofllco of Govornor. Ho ia not a popular raau. Tho convention waa hold in Juno. Notwithaianding his efforts and hia mothods at tho primarioa, whon tho nominatingbody asaemblcd Goebel had Iobb than 200 dologates. Of the thrco candldates, Ilardin had ovor 600, and Stono nearly 400. With 900 dologatoa aalnst him Goebel ehowod that ho waa tho Luclfor of tho occaalon. ile secured Stono'd aid by promislng to mako him tho candidato for Govornor in do- foiting Hardlu'd candidato for tompor-ary chairman. Thoti ho eocurod a coni- mlttoo on credontials which decidod all coutcstcd olcction casos agaliiBt Ilardin, invonted contosts whoro uono oxlatcd, praclicod his Satauic art of manipulation on tho Stono contingont, tlll hia 200 had becorao a majority of all tho dolcgatcB, and ho Becured tho nomlnation. In boldnusa and tra-dittonal capacity for auccosBful wlcked- ncBB, Goobol out-Satona Satau himsolf. Havlng thcBO qualltlos, fortlilod by tho oiection law of his own croating, bus-tainod and oncouragod by tho prosouco and voico of William JouningB Brynn, tho national Domocratio loador, why should uot this political highwayman count his calling and olcction suro? Tho opposlng candidatOB aro John Young Brown,bolting freo ailvor Dotn-ocral, Taylor, llopublicau, and two othere ropresonting Bomo othor ahadcB of nolltical bolief. Tho gold Demo crats havo no candidato and may voto with tho llenublicanB. With a fair count tho Itepublicans will undoubtod ly olcct their caudidatc; with tho count Goobel's tools may mako, "tho dark and bloody ground" of Danlol Boono may havo a new chriatoning. Ovcrrated. Nowa that contiaues to como in of tho flgliting at Gloncoo and Dundco, with tho commenla of tbeBrltish nows-papcrs, BhowB that tho victorics of October 20 and 21 wero much ovcrrated. Tho military critic of tho London Morning Post says: "Olearly the victory at Dundee roqnlres elucldatlon. It waa a magnlflcont exblbl-tlon ot daring, but as a victory lt looks poorly. Technlcally, no doubt, lt waa ono. The posltlon waa taken and tho enemy fled, but fled, lt appoara, with bo little confuslon that thoy captured all who had the toinor-lty to paraue them. That may bo a technl- cal defoat, but from the Boer polnt ot vlow, wbere tecbnlcalltiea aro not consldored, lt is practlcal good fortune." Aftor tho victory at Gloncoo on Fri-day tho Engliah thought thoy wero clear of their enemy, tho Boera, for eomo days, at leaat, but thoy wcro on-tirely miataken. Tho roport of tho cap-turo of all tho Boers' guns was incor-rcct. As a mattor of fact thoy took them off before theEnglish stormedtho hills. Meanwhilo Gencral Joubert worked around and threatenod Dundec. On Sunday tho Boers bogan ehelling tho lattor placc at long rango. Tho aim of the gunners was oxcollent and tho British wero oompelled to got out of tho placo leaving their wounded to tho caro of tho Boera. On Monday, a diversionby the British nt ElandBlaagte, about midway between Dundec and Ladysmltb, opencd tho way for tho rctroat of General Yulo to tho lattor piaco, and tho union of his forces with those of General White. In the courso of theso operations a body of tho Eighteenth hussars, aent out to iutercept a body of Boers, was itself intercepted and takcu prisonera. Theee havo recently orrived in Pretoria, the capital of tho Tranvaal. The British loaa in killed and wounded, also, wbb acvere, approximating G00 ofllcerB aud men, among the former being General Symons. Thia i8 exclusivo of tho captured hussars. Theso flgures repre-sent about the entire losa of tho Araer-ican army in the Philipplnca, in kil'ed, wounded and missing, since tho break-ing out of the Filipiuo rebelliou, Feb-ruary 4. But the Boer is a ruarksman. He ahoota to kill.audEoglish mortality in tho recent cngagements i3 proof of the dcadly certainty of hia oi,m, as tho cnforced and hasty rotreat of tho British armic8, with their superiority of discipliuo, organization aud armament, is proof of the sturdy charac'.or of thc Boer as o foeman.
