cuts of high moral ideas." If a man
chants from Democrat to Republi-
A,n on mWTle." another varietv
of "principle" might reverse the
process. Our district Judicial chame-
leon recently seemed to be threaten-
ed with such a metamorphosis, but
the process -was checked in some
way and he has become a violent
"lambaster" oX , Democrats and all
things Democratic. He even went
ilown on record at Frankfort last
week as a REPUBLICAN candidate. J
The old gentleman is getting back
to 'normalcy." His defeat in Nov-
ember will complete the job.
The Democratic Convention held (
here Monday was one of the most
Ku.resstul ever held by the party j
in this county. The attendance was
r-henomenal and the enthuslatic j
spirit shown by the loyal party ,
workers in attendance was most en-
counting. The presence and parti-j
clpution of the ladies added the j
finishing touch of refinement an,
decorum to the deliberations. The
perfect harmony in evidence fore-
BbadowH a re-birth of Democratic '
activity in the county, which will
surely lead to ultimate victory. The
Convolution recommended a ticket
made up of good, clean, competent
men. If they are the party's rep-
reeentative in the final election, ;
tlicy will lie worthy the suffrage of
all citizens of the county who are ,
uefrkin:; an honest, economical, business-like
administration pf public
affairs!. They, together with the
caudidate for Phei lff, to be selected ,
In the primary, will probably be

That notorious- campaign crier,
"Tlmbuctoo Ed Morrow" has tare
cooked up a pretty kettle of flh,
for himself, his purty and his btate.
In the case nfvhls tct-eut pardon' of
the Imndlt, flluir, who had served
only about half hi sentence and
was wanted by tbe Federal au
thorities, our much heralded "Re
form Governor" ha been "caught
with the goods," a It were, and
like a schoolboy detected In some
misdeed, Is trying to cry and prom
ise blmtelf out of deserved rebuke
and runisbment. Most unfortunate
for the man who promised such
great thing in the way of prison re
form during hi candidacy for Gov
ernor. HI plaint Is near-pathetic:
"I have made a mistake. ' I
am sorry. I shall not make the
same mistake again." W honor the
Governor for being manly enough
to admit his error; w trusj he has
really learned bis lesson. But his
sorrow cannot lessen tbe scandal of
tb occurrence or efface the blot It
ts put on the fair nam of
'ucky. When lawlessness Is rimp-
.Dt, iUCB eicutiv creiesnes i
extending clemency i is most dis
couraging to the enforcer of the
law. Let us hope the Governor Is
"cured," but bis excuse is childish.
The man who was to redeem Ken
tuck' by bis political wisdom and
statesmanship, ought to know bet
ter than to grant the request of one
of the fading "practical politicians'
of bis phrty In tb State, tor a par
don for a convict about whom he,
(Morrow) knew nothing. The Exe
cutive, Is right, one must depend
upon his friends, but his depend
ence should not be blind. The mere
fact 'that Maurice Galvin, Republi

Such a request from such a source
has always a sinister look. ' This
matter ought to be fully Investiga-
te: an(i the "'nigger In the woodpile'
.-,,,,, Thn and then onlv
will the public accept the Govern
'or' promises at their full value.
Unfortunately there are some who
got- so used to his shedding of croco
dile tears In the last campaign, that
they are prone to suspect that'he
has got the habit and is trying' to
turn their shedding to personal
ends. Perhaps this one of the
