KENTUCKY MAI CAt'HO TROUBLE.
Kentucky has enacted an el.vaion law
to take the place of the Goebel law. but
M ta not to go Into effect until after the
presidential election. It la unfortunate
that thr law was not enacted soon enough
for the approaching election to he held
under 11. Several months ago we pointed
out that the presidential election might
ta- sat dose that the result would depend
on the election In Kentucky. And If that
should bo the case, ami that slate should
give Mr. liryan u small majority, ll la
almost certain that the Republicans would
dispute the result ami carry the election
Into CongrertX They would Insist that the
election In Kentucky was not a lair one—
that It hail been carried by the Democrats
by unfair means.
The chances are of course that Mr. Bry
an will carry Kentucky by such a ma
jority that there will be mi grounds for
disputing hi* right to Its electoral voir,
but, assuming that he will carry the state,
his majority may be small. The feeling
between the parties there t* extremely
bitter, and the Repuhltcant. as well as
the Democrats, are going to makn extra
ordinary efforts to elcig their ticket.
Th Democrats have practically admit
ted that Ihe law Is an unfair one by re
pealing It. To that extent they have fur
nished the Hepuhlt.hmi with an argument
tn the event that the right to the state's
electoral vote should lie contested. And
It looks as If the Kentucky quarrel would
get Into national politics even If there
should be no dispute over the electoral
vote. There Is almost certain to be con
tests between candidates for Congress
Home of the districts are pretty evenly
divided between the Democratic and Re
publican parties. If there Is a chance
for u contest a defeated candidate for Con
gress Is pretty certain to take It. Anel
the KepuhlMin* would court a contest
of that kind lit order to get a chance to
attack the Goebel law If for no other nel

some of them another. The most seri

for the reason that It would lake from
the stales rights which they have-that
It would lend strongly toward# the Re

the fact must not he overlooked that ob
jections would be raised to any remedy
that might be proposed.
The difference between Mr. Bryan’e po
sition In respect lo trusts and that of Mr.
McKinley Is that the former has a plan
for dealing wHh them and that Ihe loiter
has none. Mr. Bryan shows that he Is
In earnest, whtle there Is no evklence
that Mr. McKinley proposes to do any
thing to protect the people against trusts.
In fact, Mr. Hanna, who le the spokes
man for Mr McKinley, soya there are no
trusts—that Is. such trusts as the govern
ment Is called upon to destroy. If Mr.
Bryan should he elected there would be
an earnest effort to get rid of the trust
evil, while If Mr. McKinley should lie
given another term trusta would have
everything their own way. just as they
have now. It la openly charged that the
