The ridiculous and presumptious
slur cast by the "I" editor of the
Republican, who was temporarily in
the saddle last week, upon the no
ble and imperishable memory of the
accomplishments of Woodrow Wil
son was enough to make angels
weep f and honest men hang their
beads in shame. In the famous
wordsiof Marse Henry: "Good God,
said fhe woodcock and sadly flew
We very much fear that Friend
Fluke is doomed to a cruel fate as
a result of his trusting the editorial
pen t( a substitute while he basked
in tht sunehine of Grassy. When
"our wife" and the other good wo
men wno served with her on our
first feminine jury get through ex
pressing their appreciation of bis
sub. 's '"Solomon's harem" article,
the charms of "down the river,"
may become doubly dear and force
him as well as John Henry to go
into permanent exile.
Just' to keep 'the record straight,
so to speak, and to keep the people
of thid Judicial District from giving
too much weight to the Owensboro
Messenger's recent words of
courtesy upon the occasion of Judge
SlacW announcement as a Republi
can candidate to succeed himself,
we quite herewith a statement pub
lished Jin that paper just after the
election last fall, giving an apprais
al of conditions in the district, the
correctness of which is apparent to
even tile most superficial observer:
"(Jircuit Judge R. W. Slack
and ' Commonwealths Attorney
Claud Smith may stand for re
election but the returns of last
Tuesday showed that McLean
and Daviess counties will be
. able to roll up Democratic ma
jorities that will overcome any
thing that can be produced in
Ohio and Hancock counties."'
It is sometimes hard, but it is
the law of life. Age is supplanted
OFF AGAIN', ON AGAIN
The Vroposition made by Ger
many, through President Har
ding, that the total to be paid by
ber as reparations be placed at
$4S,OOd,000,000 instead of the
$56,000,000,000 fixed by the Allied
Council, has been refused.
If the German counter-proposal
had been sincere., either In letter or
spirit it would have deserved the
careful consideration of the Allied
statesmen, as the amount of in
demnity suggested was for the first
time, within the bounds of reason.
But the world has seen so much of
German' stalling, haggling and gen
eral duplicity that their latest oftVr
was regarded as merely another
desperate effort to stave off the day
of jut and final retribution. As to
the President's part in these nego
tiations, he has been, apparently,
actuated by sincere desire to
bring about peace, but has been led
by the ' insatiable Wilson-haters
, among bis advisers to use the most
bungling methods. The action of
the United States as an Intermedi
ary between her former allies and
the Hun, just on the eve of the final
effort to enforce the eminently just
terms fined by tot Allied Council,
left our associates doubtful of
our future support and enormbusly
encourgaed the enemy in their ef
fort" to evade their Just deserts.
But to add the final confusing touch
to our apparent desertion of all for
which we fought, the Senate has
adopted the Knoz peace resolution,
which declares the state - of war
with Germany to be technically at
an end, bnt reserves all questions
of dispute between the two nation
for settlement by . a treaty to be
negotiated later. Of all the futile,
foolish plans, this deserves the
palm. It definitely give notice to
our former allies that we have re
pudiated and . cieseriea mem sua
leaves us in ri position In which
we can only afck, or beg, terms from
the nation our armies brought to
Its knees on November. 11, 1918
We have definitely lost all right to
demand, as victors, any of the
right or benefits gained by many
months of conflict and suffering.
That which would have been easily
and speedily safeguarded .by the
ratification of the Versailles treaty,
Is now lost by the adoption of the
In the meantime the German
cabinet has resigned as a result of
the Allied refusal of their last pro
posal and an ultimatum has been
sent to Berlin fixing May 12 as the
limit of time given In which to ac
cept the terms of the Allies. If the
Germans refuse to take action, the
French will occupy the Ruhr Basin
with their military forces.
The only gleam of hope in the
situation is the announcement that
the President has decided to adopt
another of Wilson's much maligned
policies and will send unofficial rep
resentatives to the Allied Council.
The responsibilities of office cer
tainly show many a successful can
didate the folly of his pre-election
tactics of criticism and, obstruction
Give the President time and he may
get right, and .our International
honor be saved. But what a sorry
spectacle we have had so far of the
results of blind partisanship!
On last Sunday, the friends of
Mr. A. E. Smith, of Fordsville, gath
ered at his home at about 12 o'clock
with well-filled baskets, the con
tents of which were spread in the

forty minutes all the cares of life
were forgotten and everyone enjoy
