I.. & N. Cannot Raise Rates.
The'' L. & N. struck another
snnr this week in its at tempt
to further gouge the people. It.
sought to raise the coal rates be
tween the southeastern Kentucky
Molds and Cincinnati and Louis
ville, 05 per cent, and more. The
Interstate Commerce Commis
sion steps in and says, Mr. L. fc
N., stay thy greedy hand, you can
not raise the rate one cent. Such
a raise is branded by the Conr
mission as unjust, unfair, and
very unreasonable. The Com
mission upon a thorough investi
gation, finds that the L. & N. is
making earnings enough even un
der a reconstruction' process,
which in a way is faxed up as op
erating expenses, when in fact it
should have been divided with n
further investment. The decis
ion of this Commission is charac
terized as one of the most remark
able and elaborate opinions ever
written by that body. It is ex
haustive and replete with facts
and opinions that?' every Ken

The Best Selling Agent.
We repeat that advertising in
country newspapers, properly u
tilized, is tho -fii'ost valuable ad
vertjsing in thuworld for its cost,
says the New York Journal. We
urge aJvertisurifto take advant
age of the opportunities offered
by the country.n'owspapers. We
add, incidentally, that wo don't
own and nover expect to own any
country newsptyper or to have an
interest in a country newspaper.

Tho country newspaper is the
best of all advertising mediums.
The country editor with a
thousand circulation can make
himself worth to the community
at least six thousand dollars a
year. He can make his paper
earn that if he chooses to do it.

not ruled by local merchants or

Progressives Make Resolution.
If the resolution of represen
tative Progressives in session at
Louisville this week is regarded
to have any bearing upon the
conditions that be and arc to lat
er be, that party will forever
stand aloof from modem "Re
publicanism". This resolution
"Resolved, That it is the sense
of the Progressive State Execu
tive Committee that any fusion
or combination of the Progressive
party with any other party nt the
elections in 1918 will be detri
mental to the best interests of
the partv, and it advises all sub
ordinate committees of the party
to keep the Progressive party out
of all such entanglements and to
take steps to nominate a full
Progressive ticket in every coun
ty in the State."
