FOR EliECTOR NINTH MSTIUPT,
HON. W. H. COX.
The Cynthmrm Democrat cannot cite one
single instance during the last fifty years,
when we had prosperity under a Democratic
President. Maysville Ledger.
Like Artcmas Ward, the Ledger is u.m
- amoosin' cuss." It talks like there had been
ix long line of democratic Presidents. Grover
Cleveland, as everybody knows, was the only
one of the breed in tho last fifty year?, aud al
though ho was handicapped, hampered aud
harrassed by Republican Congresses during all
of his first term and much or his second term,
he is now universally recognized as one of the
greatest Presidents the country has had. Tho
Ledger knows this,and so recogni.ts Cleveland
.except when it wants to bloviate a little for
There was no panic or hard times during
Cleveland's first term, although Republican
high tariff laws were oppressing the people.
When he went iuto office foi the second term,
after the people had had quite enough in one
s term of. the Republican President, Harrison,
the iMcKinley high tariff law and all other
"beneficient" Republican laws were in full
force and effect, and they remained in full
force and effect for more than a year after the
Ledger's favorite era of "soup houses" and
"bread Hues" began. Doesn't the Ledger
know that the so-called "panic of ISM" began
under tho Harrison administiatiou, before
Cleveland was elected, and l:ippe.d over to tho
Democratic adininisirition If it doesn't
know thie, it had better read up a little.
Aud while it is reading up, please mark the
chapter devoted to tho panic of 187.'), when
U. S. Grant was President and the Republicans
had been in full power since before the war.
Who was responsible foi lack of prosperity
And then letitturnto the chapter on the pauie
of 1007, when that dear Roosevelt .was Presi
dent and the Ledger was servilely licking his
boots. The bad taste is still in its mouth.
Both houses of Congress were Republican, the
grear Dingley high tariff law was in force, the
Trusts were llouiishing like a green bay tree:
the Presideut was brazenly bi caking the laws
by authorizing a King Pee Stool Trust to ab
sorb its only competitor, and "My Dear Ilarri
man, and "My Dear Maria," aud My Dear
Ledger wore joined in one glad refrain, "Holy,
Holy, Holy! Great The-o-doro?"
.Who was responsible for the failure of pros
perity then? Cynthiana Democrat.
You are quite free (its the Democratic
"free") with your mild expletives or "amoosin'
cuss," "licking his boots," etc. Looks to us
like you are itching to call us something that
wouldn't go well in pi nit; it's tho Democratic
ay of calling names when they have no
argument, truth or fact to substantiate their
If Tub Lkdqkk is "an amoosin' cuss," Tho
Democrat is an aitful dodger, and hums and
haws and begs tho questions at'is9ue.
, Thero's a -big difference between, a money
nwinic and an era of hard times. Wo havef had
clozens of" financial panics under Republican
administrations, but the hard limcq undor
Clovoland and tho Democratic sjup hou9e,
Coxoy Army days, when 3,000,000 idle men
paraded the United States, led by that smiliug
statesman-mountebank, Bill Biyan, and his
following of froo silver and free trade shouters,
was the real and another thing.
Grover Clovoland was a groat man and a
great Presideut. Grover Cleveland was so
much bigger and better aud greater than his
party that it is painful to think of tho contrast.
Mr. Cleveland was not in touch with the
nettle-brained principles of the Democratic
party, and although President when he left
tho White House he was most cordially hated
and villified by almost the solid Democratic
party. Ho was cussed from one end of tho
countiyto the other by his own party.
Grover Cleveland was too patriotic to sign
the idiotic Wilson Tariff bill that brought
want and misery to the country.
It is hardly possible for Bryan a Democrat
like you are, aud a Taft Republican like wo
think we are, to argue with any degree of
reason or satisfaction.
We put up the cold, historic facts against
your theories on the Tariff.
We are willing to let history tell what the
Ucpublican party has done and what tho Dem
ocratic party has tried to undo.
Grover Clevclaud is numbered among the
great men and great Presidents.
Theodore Roosevelt was a great President,
now we class him as a maniac and anarchist.
Wood row Wilson is merely an academic
trimmer, who declares the protective tariff law
unconstitutional, thus attacking the Govern
ment's basic principles, is the right to raise re
venue by taxation at our custom houses.
Wilson would reduce the high cost of living
and at the same time give the farmers an in
crease for their products. He beats Bryan as
the great American promise.
Compare Presideut Taft's leeord as a
square-deal President, his judicial appoint
ments and his manly stand on every question
concerning the welfare of the entire American
Thero is less of the narrow minded partisan
about Taft than any statesman in public Life
President Tfc is going to stand or fall with
the Republican protection policy. Tho Re
publican party stands with him and the pros
perity ot the United States proves thhat the
party and the President aie right.
Suppose Taft should suffer defeat in Nov
ember, it will not depress him nor turn his
party from the truths embodied in the revivile
principles espoused by Lincoln, Garfield and
McKiuley and of fifty years of political ex
While the Democrats rail against protection
they fear Free Trade as a parly issue oven
Its any compromise with the Democrats,
oven dishonor, to gain the Presidency and
feed again their hosts at the public ciib.
It is now gradually dawning upon some
erstwhile Taft doubters and critics that oui
smiliug President is a worthy successor of
Lincoln and McKinloy. No President, in tho
Whito House eiuce Washington has possessed
tho bigu patriotism and lofty integrity in a
more marked degree than William Howard
Taft. Indorsed by Roosevelt, Wilson aud
Bryan as n model executive, and utterly do
void of political trickery and tho chicanery of
a few of bis illustrious predecessors, Taft's
record for fair dealing squares with his ex
alted position he holds and makes his admin-
. istratiou tho golden era in American history.
Prosperity for all tho people with nevor tho

The tariff may or may not be the nursing
mother of trusts, but it certainly has always
been the prolific father of political lies.
A large part of the American people be
lieve that the present tariff actually increased
the duties, and a much larger part are con

The facts are these, as shown by the books
