Surprised though we be, it is a fact that sufficient votes switched from
the Democratic party to cause defeat of that ticket by a majority close to
30,000 at the election held last Tuesday.
Contributing 'to" this result-arc many causes. To our mind one of the.
' main causes came from penny-a-liners within our own ranks, who early
started the old story of "negro in the wood pile," reflecting on the Stanley
administration and asking that a "clean house be given." These state
ments were rebuked by the Democratic party in the primary by naming
Governor Black ifs the. head of thc ticket. Such onslaughts, however,
against the present administration were "sweet morsels" to the Republi
can campaign committee, who formed an assault alliance, with these
hindrances and went before the people with the proposition, give the State
a clean house, and we will do wonders. Pledges" ndinfinitum were made
upon this basis and the voters accepted the vision of a "marc's nest" and
Jogethcr with the promises of reductipn of taxes the illiminntion of what is
termed "useless offices," etc, entered the voting booths. Thc "doubting
Thomases" joine din with the Republicans and all these votes counted.
These are just some of the reasons and sufficient were the promises
therefor, that this State will not only expect, but demand a iulfillmcnt of
pledges made. "We will see what we shall see." As to the Advocate, we con
fess our surprise and feel that our many Democratic Mends have been
sorely dupped. We are here to say that wc will accept ITr. Morrow ns our
Governor, the people's Governor and pledge co-operation in every move- j

HOTEL .iv ' . j
A spirit of building is possessing our people and it' now appears that '
this spirit will lead up to the construction of a hotel building that would be
i bufficient to care not alone for the traveling public, but for that of thc
annual gathering of conventions that would come 'our wnv. Wherever wo
j go we hear the words, "You certainly have a busy city; a pity it is you arc
short on hotel accommodations." This is by no means a reflection on our
present hotel and its management, for the people-here 5n this small hotel
i building do their best, nnd for the present management we hear nothing but
words of praise.

KEEP OFF DIPHTHERIA"
- Diphtheria is reported as exist
fing' in mor0 than half the counties
in Kentucky. It is epidemic in several
of them. This is not a cause for
senseless alarm, but for intelligent
action. More thnn half the 249 deaths
which occurred, from this disease
last year were in children whose
parents failed to call a physician
during the first three days of the
sore throat. The greatest American

used on tho first day of the appear
