t the State reported close and strong
opposition in his own party he can
eels Ids speaking dates offers 10

Of the investigation In answer to
t some carping critic who questioned
jhis right to offer such a great re
A
ward the Governor replied If the
State does not or cannot pay it I
Will pay it out of my own pocket
It makes the blood run faster in
the veins of an honest man to see
such courage and backbone in a pub
lie official Some of our own county
officials could take pattern from him
t
F there was more of such devotion
to public duty Kentucky would not
Y now stand disgraced and dishonored

Jfis not the ordinary criminal tliat
0 society hags to fear Our police force
jn usually able to protect citizens
dsgainst his depredations But it is
these new crimes winked at in many
communities by good citizens which
threaten the body politic Unless
they can be stopped the laws are
useless and society is in danger
All honor again to Governor Pat
terson lie deserves reelection as
Governor of Tennessee J We believe
that the good citizens of our neighbor
state will see to it that he loses noth

jhis official duties

rw laymen realize the evils of

tell us that germs of many of the

drinking tanks How large cakes
of ice were passed from hand to

they were thrown to the roof of the

One of the great railroads of the
country has already abolished the

several big department stores in the
larger cities have introduced a paper

The schools are the place to start

agoAnother
Another section of his speech dealt
with the forestry t question an li he said
that it should not be allowed to enter
into the river improvement plans
quoting records v of the highest and
lowest stages of the river for many
years to indicate that the presence or
absence of the forests has relatively
no effect upon the stage of the river
In conclusion he pictured the in
creased traffic to the Pacific coast and
to the far east which is to result from
the construction of the Panama canal

deep water way advocates are also
advocates of a ninefoot stage for the
Ohio river and asked the assistance
of the latter in securing the develop
