ASHLAND PUBLIC SCHOOLS
AND PROF. BEADNER.
The commencement season of the Ashland Public
Schools has come and gone, and it has left in the
minds of most of the patrons of our schools thut the
year just pust has been one of the most successful
iJi the history of the schools. Much of his suc
cess is due to the faithful and untiring efforts of
our superintendent, Mr. James W. Bradner. Air.
Braducr assumed . the leadership of our Public
Schools one year ago, and with a handicap that was
V almost enough to daunt the courage of the most
'fearless. This was in the shape of the financial end
of our school system. There was not enough money
in sight to meet the current expenses of the schools
and it was necessary to put the question to a vote
in order to raise the taxation, to provide money to
meet the deleit. The proposition met with many
obstacles and it was necessary for Supt. Bradner to
lead the fight in favor of the increased taxation.
The result was a decided victory for Mr. Bradner
and the public schools.
Since then, Mr. Bradner has worked into our
school system, numerous ideas of his own. which
have had a decided tendency to better the con
dition of the schools, lie has engendered into pupils
the spirit of enthusiasm and a love for their work,
which they did not heretofore possess. This was
shown in the annual literary contest between the
two High School societies and in other ways. He
has also established a splendid system of athletics
and both boys and girls have taken a deeper inter
est in physical education than-they have for many
In all this work, the development of heart and
soul power has not been lost sight of. Mr. Brad
ner 's idea is that study is to give one power, dis
cernment, insight to know the truth, the reality, the
divine quality of the thing we see
or hear not to load one down but
.to lift up. In this work he has had the co-operation
of parents, faculty and Board of Education,
and, this has aided largely in tb.e success achieved.
Plans arc now being formed for next year. Let
us all uphold the hands of our progressive super
intendent and thus aid him in bringing our school
to a still higher plane ,of usefulness. Ashland
'"'THE POOR, DEAR, OLD, FOOLIS
DEMOCRATIC PARTY. WHY IT FAILS."
John Sharp Williams.
Senator John Sharp Williams, of Mississippi,
who was the Democratic leader in the House be
fore Underwood, and who berated his colleagues in
the Senate Wednesday for quarreling over the se
lection of reserve cities and other matters, de
clared the party was beginning todo just what it
could be counted upon doing every time.
"The poor, dear, old, foolish Democratic
party," said the Democratic Senator, "is
going through the same game that she can
be generally trusted to go through soon after
she gets into power.
"That is the Democratic party true enough," he
continued. "That is its history. That is what led
Speaker Tom Reed to say in 1891 and 1895: 'You
can't last long because you arc not accustomed to
governing anybody or any thug; you cannot govern
the country because you cannot govern yourselves.
You are incompetent." Wishington Post. (DEM.)
THE INSURANCE COMPANIES DEMANDS.
In accordance with its custom of opening its col
umns to all sides of public questions the Courier
Journal gives the insurance companies another
hearing this morning.
It may be noticed, however, that Mr. Allison's
fervid paper, like others on that side of the issue,
ignores several points-of legitimate interest. There
is nothing for instance, about the excessive ex
penses of the insurance companies' methods of do
ing business, which is as material a factor as the
lire loss in fixing rates. Nor is there anything to
disabuse the public of the conclusion that the com
panies, having left the State before any attempt
had been made to hurt them by means of the Glenn
law, are now trying to frighten the State into a
repeal not only of that law. but of the Zom law,
thus freeing themselves of any Stale regulation
In private some of the representatives of the
companies say that they are willing to operate
under reasonable State regulation; but if that is
true they should formulate an act embodying some
thing of what they regard reasonable regulation.
The Courier-Journal is anxious to help them repeal
the Glenn law, but it is unable to understand why
both that law and the Zorn law should be repealed,
with nothing to take their place, leaving the com
panies absolute masters of the situation. Courier-Journal.
