In an interview bearing the stamp
of authenticity Klackburn
is quoted as expressing the opinion
that the republicans hao a most
cxcollcnt opportunity to carry Kentucky
in the gubernatorial race this
year. We do not know whether Senator
Rlacitburn made this statement
or not; iudced with the memory of
the many battles in democracy's behalf
waged in the past by the loyal
leader, we sincerely hope that ho did
not. However disappointment, especially
that colored with political
ambition, often leads men into strange
paths, and in view of recent events,
that have happened in Kentucky
politics in the days not long gone.
It is possible that a cioud of resentment
has obscured the erstwhile clear
vision of the Kentucky senator,
bringing forth words that came with
ill graco from one who for lo! these
many years has eaten bountifully at
the table of democracy. Then, too,
in view of the recent appointmont by
President lloosovclt of the ex-Senator
to a federal position which pays
fourtcon thousand dollars a year, can
it be that the glamor of tho new en
viroiimeuts, the call of strange
voices, add the tempting allurmeuts
of a snug berth beneath the kindly
wing of federal patronage, has caus
cd the old war horse to forget tho
old friends of the past, and to turn
from the beaten paths of the old days
into the alluring fields, that lead
along the primrose path of momentary
promise? Far be it from us to
uclieve such things. Wc have too
high an estimate of Kentucky man
hood, too strong an assuranco in tho
abiding faith of democracy, too firm
a belief in the man himself.
Give us the proof and wo will admit
our error, but it must be strong
proof bearing the undisputable
stamp of authority. Until then wo
will still bolicve in tho constancy of
the old guard, still hold his banner
aloft, still remember his loyalty in
the past, and if it must bc done,
draw a veil over the questionable
ways of the future. Paducah News
