bV THUTHFUL VOICE OF WARNING
Which Speaks for Better
Things In States
8dIE FACTS PLAINLY STATED
Tho Loulsvlllo Times o Friday
Tho time was and It was not so
long ago either :tnat tho newspaper
or tho public speaker that didn't be
gin and end a deliverance on Ken
tucky with undigested praise of Its
virtues and a spread-eaglo refusal
to admit the existence either of Its
needs or shortcomings, was set down
as an enemy of the State.
Yesterday afternoon, Harry Som
mers, a veteran newspaper man and
n speaker who always commands a
hearing, made tho principal address
at tho first session of tho Good Roads
Congress. These were his opening
"It Is evident that In Kentucky wo
havo done those things which wo
ought not to liavo done and left un
done those things which wo should
havo done. Between our political
feuds, our blood feuds In the moun
tains and our tobacco feuds In Cen
tral and Western Kentucky, we havo
repelled both capital and Immigra
tion from our borders.
"Wo havo neglected the education
of our children until Illiteracy is a
reproach to tho State. We havo
left comparatively untouched the
great wealth which tho Creator stor
ed In the bowels of our mountains.
Wo have shipped out our splendid
timber to bo manufactured In other
States, Instead of manufacturing It
at home. We have legislated against
tho railroads, those great pioneers
of progress and development, In
stead of encouraging them to extend
their lines. As a result of all this,
tho census figures show that only
ttiron states In tho Union have a
smaller percentage of growth than
Kentucky. Is It not time to turn
over a 'now leaf Just before the Now
Year and use to the fullest extent
AttB mull advantagea wUUh natur
?"-- r .7.1 iiii m l t-fJt-'',--?
has laia at our ieei ana wuicu up
portunlty has brought to our door?"
And his audience applauded him.
The applause was given because
Mr. Sommers' hearers recognized
that he had the courage to speak
truths and thruths with which Ken
tucklans have to grapple.
In tho same building and almost
at tho snme hour, Col. Qteen It. Kel
ler, another veteran of tho press,
was urging his audience, made up
exclusively of Kentucky editors, to
use their power for the election to
tho next General Assembly of men
broad enough to forget county and
legislative boundaries In dealing
with questions that affect tho State.
To ihoTlmeb' way of thinking,
.these two incidents havo more than
a passing significance. They -spell
the beginning of tho end of tho self
satisfaction which has caused Ken
tucky to Ignore facts. They were
prompted by no deslro to advertise
our weaknesses as a State and peo
ple, but by a patriotic purpose to
mako clear tho evils to tho end that
thoy may bo remedied. Thoy bear
