The recent election showed that
New York, Pennsylvania, Massa

winning political party, as Gov.
Wilson could have been elected
without the Eastern States. The

Gov. Wilson says he lias been
surprised during hlB brief occu
pancy of political office "at the
number of men who want to talk to
me behind the backs of their hands
and In whispers." And he further
says he Is going to discountenance
this sort of thing so far as within
bis power lies.
In the Wilson cabinet sugges
tions Mr. Bryan's name has been
coupled with the Ambassadorship
to London. This Ib a position
which Is said to pay $17,000 a year
and requires about $250,000 a year
to fill It "properly." The extra ex
pense comeB with the style in which
the Ambassador Is expected to live,
coupled with numerous entertain

prospect hardly looks compatible

DEMOCEACY IN OHIO COUNTY.
Owjng to tne recent sweeping
Democratic victory especially in
this county many rumors are rife
" l Prospective candidates for
I county offices neM year on the Dem
ocratic ticket. Already several
made for Democracy's ticket to go
before the people, and this can
only be done by a careful selection.
Men of known and tried Democratic
principles should be chosen, and
their fitness and ability for the of
ttce to which they aspire should be
a special consideration. The real
worthiness and personal attractions
i of a man, although of great Import
ance, do not always constitute his
full measure of ability to fill a pub
lic trnst. His especial fitness for
the place should be paramount to
A great responsibility rests upon
tile Democratic party In the Imme
diate future, In county. State. and
nation. The people are looking at
us and watching what we are going
to do. We have won a great victo
ry and it behooves us to be very
careful of. the trust Imposed In us
aB expresged by tne voterg at the
poB If We g(vc g00d gervce as
PublIc servants, all will be well and
we may reasonably expect an en
dorsement of our efforts. If wc put
poorly qualified men in positions of
power and trust either of high or
low degree we must expect only
to be discharged like a careless and
unworthy servant. Too often It
has been the opinion of men that a
public office Is simply personal prop
erty, to be used and administered
according to private views and pur
poses, whereas the public really
own the offices, which should be ad
ministered according to their needs
Every man who aspires to pub
lic office should lay all personal
ambitions aside and first examine
himself as to whether he Is fit ma
terial to constitute the Incumbent.
He should be a better judge than
even some of his best friends. On
the other hand, he should not con
demn a friend who may bo against
his official aspirations for reasons
that may be obvious.
Amid all these responsibilities
no Democrat should be ignorant of
his duty in the premises. He Is his
own agent and he needs no advice
from anyone as to whom he should
support or reject. He is free as to
choice, but above all he should pon
der well the matter before he com
mits himself In word or deed. With
a splendid ticket of well qualified
men of known honesty and Integ
rity, th0 Democrats will sweep the
field In this county next year as
completely as they did at the re
cent election. To this noble pur
pose every loyal Democrat should
lend his aid, doubting 'nothing of
the outcome. Let's select good
men and their election will be a

Fight Over Capital of Mc
Crcary Has Reached a
Frankfort, Ky., Nov. 16. Mc
Creary county's troubles are being
poured Into the ear of Gov. McCrea
ry by Judge Harry Jones, who came
to Frankfort to plant a red oak for
his county. He was closeted with
Gov. McCreary for a long time and
when he came out, admitted that
the subject of affairs in the new
county had been mentioned.
Judge Jones regards the situa
tion there as critical on account of
the county seat war between Whit
ley City and Pine Knot. County
Clerk Joseph Myrlck, whom Judge
Jones had arrested for refusing to
appear before him and show cause
why he removed the county records
from Pine Knot to Whitley City,
has been released and while My
rlck is threatening to proceed
against Judge Jones in the hope of
removing him from office on the
ground of alleged ineligibility.
Judge JoneB is seeking some way of
separating Myrlck from his posi
tion. Both were appointed by Gov.
Editor McQueary, of the McCrea
ry County News, and one of the at
torneys in the case, representing
Rine Knot in the county seat con
test, claims to have been compelled
at the point of a pistol to give up a
copy of county records which he
had obtained from Myrlck'a books,
and Judge Jones said that be had
Issued r warrant of the Circuit
Judge, and Sol Perkins, charging
them with the offense, but Judge
JoneB said neither warrant had
been returned before he came to
"I was informed," said Judge
Jones, "that when McQueary went
to Myrick's offlce in Whitley City,
Myrlck refused to let him see the
records, but finally was persuaded
to, and then while McQueary was
waiting for the train to Pine Knot
at Stearns, h- was compelled at the
point of a pistol to give up the

Knot advocate, "are behind the

the county records back from Whit
ley City to Pine Knot. I Issued an
order for him to bring them and
then I cited him to appear before
me and show cause wn' he should

came down and promised to .do it,
but I have not heard from him since

Asked as to the assertion that he
had not lived In Kentucky the two
years which are necessary to qual-
ify him to occupy the position he
holds, Judge Jones answered: "I
am letting them go ahead. That Is

O THE AFTEIWHTH. O
The Socialist vote will exceed one
million, the largest In the history
of the party.
Nicholas Longworth, son-in-law
of Theodore Roosevelt, was defeat
ed in his candidacy for re-election
to Congress In Ohio. Stanley
Bowlle, Democrat, was elected.
Wilson carried . probably 40
States, more than any other candi
date ever carried, and will have
above 4.0 votes In the electoral
college the greatest number ever
given to any man.
Taft carried fewer States than
any candidate of a leading party
and will have but 12 votes, by far
the lowest number ever given a
candidate for re-election. He car
ried Idaho, Utah and Vermont, each
having four votes.
The "seven little Governors" who
made a pilgrimage early last spring
to Oyster Bay and asked Colonel
Roosevelt to be a candidate were
from Michigan, New Hampshire,
Missouri, Kansas, Nebraska, Illi
nois and California. These were
then Republican States, but since'
election Michigan Is the sole sur
vivor and It Is Bull Moose now.
All tbe others went Democratic.
Roosevelt has called on the Pro
gressive party to meet in Chicago,
December 10, to make plans for the
future. Taft has a plan to resusci
tate the Republican party by organ
izing a national Republican club to
preserve loyalty. He predicts Wil
son has troubles ahead with a Con
gress on his hands inclined to in
surgency. Congress will be Democratic In
both branches for tbe first time
since 1S92. For the first time in
many years several States will have
Democratic legislatures and 42
United States Senators are to be
elected thls winter. The Democrats
hope to gain 10, enough to control
as the body stands. If Illinois
should fall to elect two because of
a dead-lock, eight will give the
Democrats full sway.
