country people was established by

The pro-tem editor of the Hart
ford Republican seems to think
nothing ever happened in a political
way In Ohio County before ho came.
If he hud read our editorial in the
lswue of August 10, he would have
no complaint us to our silence In re
gard to our local ticket. In view of
his perennial laudations of his tlck
'. be must ho in the unfortunate
position of a salesman who hus a
good line of "selling talk," but a
poor line of merchandise. Our be
lief is, as the Dard of -A von put it:
' "Good wine needs no bush."

Idt .ant week, even harking back
to Louisville to bolster up its case.
One difference It failed to mention
between the Republican endorse
ment of the Louisville Democratic
judges and the desperate plea of
Judge Sluck for re-election, is the
fact that the Louisville Jurists reul-
Ily bad records that were "unatsallect
and unassailable" while In this dis
trict Its candidate for Judge Is only
claiming such a record. If Judge
( Slack's record Is so exemplary, let
ui have some concrete examples be
sides the technical correctness of
his ruling In the election case ot
t four years ego. The friendly ex
, presslons of a life-long personal
friend do not make public opinion
and do not constitute a "record."
What has Judge Slack done that en
titles him to an endorsement The
mere lapse of his official term does
not spell judicial success.
The good roads buncombe of our
friends, the enemy Is "enough to
make 'old Ring' laugh." "All the
highways of the county have been
brought to a higher standard than
was ever known before." In fact
they are so good that candidates '
can fill at least a third or their .
speaking dates in the fall campaign. 1
Ask , Judge Slack and Common-
wealth's Attorney Smith about tho
good roads between Hurtford and
Hell's Run? No, it makes no dif-i
ference what we say or what the
Hartford Republican says. Ask the
pcoplo. And they will answer, in
November, for they know how their
taxes go higher and higher and j
their roads remain, with a very few
exceptions, "Just the same, dear
John, as fifty years ago."
We tiro surprised at our contem
porary's admission ' that' it knew
nothing about the truth of the re
