Excerpt from Message of Gov; Preston H. Leslie, to the General Assembly of Kentucky: December 1, 1873; Regular Session of the Legislature of 1873-'4 Fellow-Citizens of the Senate and House of Representatives: In welcoming you to the Capital of the State in regular session, I congratulate you that you meet under auspices comparatively so favorable. While some portions of our country have been scourged with pestilence, and financial distress has prevailed in others, our own people have, in the main, been blessed with health, and are free from other embarrassment than that which results from depression at the money centers. Season able harvests and average crops have rewarded the labor of the past year, giving with other blessings abundant cause of gratitude to a benign Providence. I regret to say that, while the general observance of the laws has been commendable, yet in certain localities of the Commonwealth deeds of violence have been committed with such evidence of organization and pernicious design as to call for special condemnation. I give the subject the first prominence in this message, as well to invite your most earnest attention as to indicate my purpose and desire to lend the whole weight of my official and personal influence towards the suppression of an evil which has too long brought shame to us at home and reproach upon us abroad. It matters little what may have been the origin of this form of lawlessness for which, in its incipiency, some have claimed merit as intended to correct abuses and crimes springing from the unsettled condition of affairs at the close of the war. It is enough to know that any expedient to redress real or supposed grievances other than as provided by the statutes is wrong, and not to be justified by any argument that regards law as the truest foundation and safeguard for society. The history of all such combinations is, that however worthy may be the original object, or however deserving its authors, they degenerate in time into lawlessness worse than that which they were designed to suppress, and, in the hands of bad men, become instruments of oppression even to those who first conceived them.
