For the convenience of our sub
icriviets. we have arranged club lines
wiih the following papers at prices

The automobile licenso went
into ell'ect in this state January
IS, 1910. Up to January 3912
the total collections amounted to
$uo,S25 50. This was for a little
over a year and a half. The to-
t-il tax for the year 1912 was
f,'07,2G0 CO innking a total of $S2,
6u CO now in the treasury to the
credit of a good roads fund.
There has been no law provided
for the expenditure of this fund,
but. it must be spent for the im
provement of the roads of the
stale. By the time the Legisla
ture meets next year this fund
will bo no less than $120,000 00
or at least 1,000 00 to each coun
ty in the state. This will be a
nucleus for a greater fund which
should be supplemented by taxa
tion and additional license, and
expended equitably among the
counties of the Bta te for the build
ing of model roads.
There is no further doubt a
bout the L. & N. owuing and op
erating the L. & E. The Times
has the necessary proof of this.
It is also a known fact that the
L. & E. is a strong competitor of
the L. & N. and the two should
not be allowed to make a final
merger. Will the commercial
bodies of Winchester and Lex
ington sit idly by and see these
roads combine when it is so
much to their interest that they
should not? If these cities more
interested than Clay City do this,
Clay City nnd Powell county
should see that suchan imposition
is not imposed upon them. The
Times is willing to aid in any
way possible. Let us hear from
The country is showing the ut
most coufidence'in the ability
and judgment of the Democrats
in revising the tariff downward
in accordance with the Demo
cratic pledges and the usual bus
iness check occasioned by tariff
legislation has not been noticed
this year and it does not seem
that there will be the slightest
check to our present prosperity
by reason of the democratic tar
ill' bill. On the other hand in
dustries are showing unusual ac
tivity in all lines, ami when the
bill becomes a luw all business
will be helped.
The thirteen electors, of Ken
tucky met on the 18th day of the
month of the 18th year of the
century at Frankfort and cast
the vote of the state for Wilson
and Marshal. It was u little
skeptical at first because the o
lector from the Ninth didn't
show up, but his successor was
speedily chosen and thus the
good work weut ou.
In our State thousandn of dol-
1 -.'b are spent to elect Legislators
every two years. The Legisla
ture meets and spends thousands
t.uvc in making bad laws and few
good o.ies. The Court of Appeals
tisi.it inz of seven men sit. and
:- e c.illed upon to review these
l-ws pesied, and thereby annul
.ost of the good work of the Leg
v ve and a little of the bad
v.otk. Thus are thousands of
tlo'hirs mis&pent in this state ov
0:7 other year.
In this nation it is far worse.
SJiilions are spent in our elec
tions and millions spent on our
Co;grese3 each year. Nearly
i 1! of the g8od laws that are pass
ed in favor of the real people are
set aside by four Federal Supremo
Judges nnd the laws for the best
interests of the classes and whis
key elements confirmed.
Such a 1 often and shameful
condition of our State and Feder
al governments is why the Times
is in favor of the Initiative and
Referendum and the recall of
Judges and all other public offi
cials. As it now is it is a rule by
the Judges and not a government
for the people and by the people.
We would like to try the latter
form of government just to see
how the people would like it.

The lawB of our land justly for
bid the practice of law or medi
cine without firstgetting a di
ploma from a good school of law
or medicine, but with farmers
they are allowed to go forth at
random, wearing and tearing tl.e
soil to shreds. This too in the
face of the faof that all the gen
erations to come must subsist up
on the soils whether they bo worn
out or replenished. No man has
a moral right tocomplotely wear
out a piece of land and ho should
not have the legal privilege.
Powell county is bettor than
we think. The trouble is her
people are slow to do things with
out someone to go before and
show them. They prefer to get
where the force of the habit of
their neighbors compels them to
