A CLEAN PRIMARY
The Democratic Committee of the
TwentyfiltH Judicial District has se t
a new high vaJer mark in politics in
ihis section of the State Following
the example of the Madison Count
ItenNtMjilK > t rnniitt it has led 1r
ed thnt if any mi fate shall eitli0
by himself ir by his duection or con
sent 01 by his friend either directly
or indirectly give loan or promise to
any voter money property spirit
spirituous
tuous malt or vinious liquors or any
thing of value for the purpose o f
promoting or influencing his nomina
ition his vote shall be thrown out and
V 00 no account shall he be declared
the nominee for the office for which
Jhe has announced
Both Judge Benton and Judge Hays
have announced acceptance of this
rule and have agreed to take the oath
required by the committee Both are
Honest high minded men and are we
believe glad of the opportunity to
put the judicial contest on a high
plane We know two of the members
of the committee personally and they
ire not men idly to pass such resolu
r lions
lionsThe
The News therefore looks for a
o race in this district that will be con
ducted as it should be on the merits
of the two candidates
The next step in the same line is
for the Democratic County Commit
tee of Clark to pass similar resolu
tions We know that some of the
committee already favors such pol
icyThe candidates outside of two
or three would welcome it Every
Democratic voter of this county who
has the good of his party at heart
should speak to his precinct commit
ieeraan and urge him to favor such
a rule
i ruleThe
The only people who will object are j
the venal voters the floaters The
candidates are naturally timid about
making a move as they are afraid
of the effect on such voters But
the good citizen the man who is
proud of his party has no such fear
t and he can urge the respective coin
forf
r I liigher politics
The present move isbutone step in
the right direction With a clean
primary we could soon expect a
clean election If the Democratic
leaders and Republican leaders of
this county would agree among them
selves to give the floaters the goby
the thing is done Neither would lose
by the agreement We are satised
that if no money was spent at the
next election except for absolutely
legitimate expenses the vote would
H be about the same If one party buys
theI
same Fight the devil with fire is the
politicians motto
1THE RED CROSS STAMPS
f
t Because of the fact that as an En
glish humorist has said nearly every
one is hard up one man for a shill
ing and another for a hundred rounds
I
one of the great problems of charity
is how to secure funds without ma
v terially inconveniencing the donors
k The originators of the Red Cross
Christmas Stamp have hit upon a
r > happy solution of this problem The
v stamps are put on sale at a penny
s each the proceeds to go to the funds
used to light tuberculosis A penny 1
f stamp upon the letters and packages

iIL
you send during the Christmas h li
d ys will not inconvenience you and
in the aggregate these penny contri
butions will aid one of the worthiest t
charities in existence
In many cities throughout the Unit
ed States the newspapers are pub
lishing stories of large donations be
ing made in the form of orders for
Christmas stamps but the venders
welcome the purchaser with one or
more pennies as well as the larger
purchaser One of the greatest
pleasures of Christmas shopping
should be that of making a contribu
tion to the good work of the Ameri
can Red Cross Society Do not send
a letter or package without a Christ
mas stamp upon it
The sales so far in Winchester
have been very small Lexington lias
given a second order for 50000 and
Georgetown Berea and Cynthiana
have also repeated their orders Do
not let Winchester lag behind in a
worthy cause

FAKE TELEGRAMS AND RESOLU

introductory speeches and the re
plies of the different speakers at the
great tobacco banquet The toast

knocked off in a great many places
on both sides Wit and repartee were
the order of the evening Senator
Lindsay and Chief Justice ORear
were the only speakers to escape
They were introduced in a dignified
manner the remaning four speakers

Suggestion
I think it would be wise to instruct
the band not to sound the call to
mount these tables are mounted on
horses which is of itself suggestive
If the bugle call be added from force
of habit probably half your guests
would be astride a candelabra dig
ging their heads in the table linen
