A CHANGE OF FRONT.
A LETTEK written by Senator Conn
Linn, who is president pro tern of the
Senate, has been made public in which
ho promised his support for the exten
sion of the County Unit Bill, which ho
said ho was heartily for. On tho
strength of it ho was elected, but it
was the same old story of
"When the devil was sick,
A monk he'd be,
When the dovil was well,
The devil of a monk was he."
If the letter is genuine, and thcro
seems to bo no doubt of it, Senator Linn
got his office by fatso pretense, for im
mediately on taking his seat ho devel
oped into the rankest of red-hot anti
County Unit men. What has come over
the spirit of his dreams? Has the per
suasive influence of the great and only
John Whallen metamorphosed him?
The man who occasionly acts as gov
ernor of Kentucky and would succeed
to the offlco if both Willson and Cox
should die or become disqualified, ought
to get Bomebody to put more starch in
Virginia is trying to ape her oldest
daughter, Kentucky, by increasing the
number of colonels that its new gov
ernor may appoint from 18 to 28. Here
we believe the governor can appoint
any number of colonels; at least every
man is called a colonel, the only differ
ence between the appointed and the so
called being that the former has to buy
his gold-trimmed uniform and get no
pay except that of admiring thousands
when ho goes on dress parade. Besides,
it is an inexpensive way to pay political
debts to the egotists.
The republican3(have only been in
power a little over two years, and yet
they have created a deficit of $500,000,
which a democratic Legislature will
have to provide for. The bill already
introduced to issue bonds for the amount
of $500,000 running 20 years and bear
ing 4 per cent, interest will be passed
in order to protect the credit of the
State. The so-called democrat who
voted tho'republican ticket in 1907, or
failed to go to the polls, ought to hire
somebody to kick him the rest of Gov,
The Church Worker says the people
of the UnitedJStates pay three millions
of dollars more for chewing gum than
for foreign missions. In either case
they get mighty little for their money
There is very little left for the heathen
after those who handle the money get
their share and what is more unsatis

It cost nearly $2,000 apiece to elec
trocute six criminals in New Jersey last
year. A gallows and a rope wouldn't
have cost over $30 and both could have
done for all six. Our Legislature which
has a bill before it providing for elec
trocution, should go bIow. The old-
fashioned hanging is good enough for
Los Angeles comes to the front with
a wife who has increased.'and multiplied
to the extent of 12 children at four
births. Two sets of twins, two of trip
lets and one of quadruplets made up the
number. Poor woman, she is doing her
best to set a good example, but alas, it
will not be followed by those determin
ed on race suicide!
It is reported from Washington that
Mr. Roosevelt will accept a seat in the
next Congress on condition that he will
be given the speakership. Ik-id, Can
non and others were nil Czars in their
day, but the rule of Roosevelt would
put them all into eclipse. He would lay
aside his big stick and rule with an iron
The Danville Advocate prints under
tho large lin "POSTED" the names
of a number of prominent citizens of
Boyle county. As there is no explana
tion for it, we cannot imagine what
the gentlemen and the several ladicu
composing the list have been doing to
demand such drastic treatment.
We are glad to note that our friend,
Geo. M. Davison, moy bo retained as

Ouit friend, M. G. CoUton, of Pulas
ki, is one of the many to introduce a
bill tq repeal thoidog tax. Ho ought to
be the last man to want it repealed. If
it is, he will have more dogs to bark at

ought to be required to pay tho extra

In other words, tho State ought not to

disqualified by act of his own.
There is some consolation these
dreary days in January, that is that tho
North Pole controversy has subsided.
And now in tho calmness that has
followed tho storm wo hope it will not

In New York State there are 1,810,-

The Legislature has been in session
three weeks and the Senate has suc
ceeded in passing one bill. The House
has none to its credit yet. The Senate
bill passed was designed to make crimi
nals escape in a large measure the con
sequences of their crime.
News comes from California that tho
orange crop was damaged about $1,
000,000 by the cold spell, but as the to
tal of the whole crop is estimated at
$35,000,000, tho loss is just enough to
give the dealers an excuse to raise the
The ancients had an old saying that
