WOODROW WILSON OUR NEXT PRESIDENT.
As wc close all of our forms on the press tonight, everything in
dicates the election of that great scholar and statesman, to the Presi
dency of this country, the Hon. Woodrow "Wilson of New Jersey. It
will not be a surprise to the masses of the people of this country, be
because from the very beginning of the present campaign, such was
the result predicted. With Theodore Roosevelt upon the one side,
and Taft upon the other, the middle of the lig road was left for the
champion of Democracy, and well has he won the distinguished
laurels. Woodrow Wilson will be the President, for the whole people
and the News is more than glad that it has had a part in the election
of such an able man.
The pet theories of Mr. Roosevelt in his effort to divert a ma
jority of the people to his plan of ihinkinir has not availed much. It
is possible, however, that he has played a good second in the race,
but that is all. As for President Taft, and tho Republican party, it
is a thing of the past. Rent asunder, disorganized, defeated and
slain, tho great body of the people heretofore, both North and South,
who have given it their .support, will now look elsewhere for a bit of
courage and hope. As has been predicted years ago, the Republican
party has been simply one out for the spoils and public plunder. Its
final downfall was inevitable, as the verdict of the people of yester
Indeed tho skyes look brighter today. With a Democratic Pres
ident to be inaugurated next March, a waive of prosperit' and confi
dence will sweep tho entire country. Let no honest man despair. The
election of yesterday settle one thins, and that is that there are j'et
enough good people in this great country to wrest it from the hands
of the spoiler and restore it to tho keeping of thoso who believe that
public oflico is a public trust. Again we say, three hearty cheers for
Wilson and tho great Democratic party, and tho good wise people of
this country who again restore it to power.
We could have written three or four columns about the mission
ary meeting, but one's words are limited on a country press. The
services made us realize how great kio the opportunities to learn, to
serve, to give and to bo happy right hero in our own town. Never
have wo been made to see so clearly tho advantages that aro here.
Tho churches tho Methodist, tho Baptist, tho Presbyterian and
others aro doors to higher education, and best of all, lead us to that
which is creat and good. Men, women and children, who aro in tho
Sunday Schools, tho missionary auxiliaries, and in tho societies of tho
young people, have possibilities undreamed of, and by work and sin
core efforts may seo them realized. Tho missionary meeting was full
of down-to-earth ideas as well as inspiring thoughts and refreshings
of lovo and faith.
Judge Mercer made a very enthusiastic speech to the Democrats
at Hardinsburg last Saturday. Tho Judge said among other things
that his first visit to Hardinsburg was in 1844. lie was thero at a
great Democratic rally. Polk and Clay wcro tho candidates for Pres
ident. Polk was a Democrat and Clay a "Whig. Ho said tho issue
before tho people then was tho Mime as it is today the tarifT. Clay
was for a high tariff, and Polk for a tariff for revenue. Polk won
and tho people never had bettor times. "Wilson ho said will win in
this campaign, and to his mind tho issue was more impoitant to tho
great mass of people than in that day and time. Tho Judge for over
sixty years has been a Democrat, and has never failed in all that time
to lift his voice and cast his voto for Democracy.
Tho Owonsboro Messenger was tho first paper to bring tho elec
tion news to Clovorport. It reached us at five o'clock this morning,
giving tho returns from every State in tho Nation. Tho Messenger
is to be congratulated, and their enterprise competes with any daily
in the State.
