Th three magistrate thus denied ' are V. B. Shortrldga, Add Skaan and Hllaa Joba.

September 14 waa the last day and they did not file until the , ttth, ' ' -- The local Republican committee re ceived notice from headquarters on the last day. It la reported, to look after .this matter for their candidates. The Court of Appeala rave out no opinion in the ease, so It Is not known ' upon what point tha case waa decided. It la not believed the Legislature In tended that vacancies can not be filled on a ticket within the 46 days period, hut thla Is the effect of tha decision ' by the Court of Appeals. On such an1 imiMirtant new nolnt it la reaarded aa rather surprising that ths high court' would refuss to publish an opinion on tha point ' Involved. The law waa changed In Kit to 45 days, thus catch ing many persons who knew that the limit was shorter under th old law, As the .county clerk has a perman ent record In his office of all certifi cates Issued, It looks Ilk a foolish law to require all candidates to burden the files further by taking back to the clerk and filing tha copy of certlfloata Issued to him. Th Frankfort 8 tats Journal reports the case aa follow: "The Court of Appeals held yester day. In the Injunction case of Adams, County Clerk of Lawrence County vs. r-'Arrington and others that nomination certificate of candidates for county offices must be filed with tha oounty clerk at least forty-five dsys before a regular election, and dissolved a man datory Injunction granted by Judge f Cisco, commanding th clerk to place tha names of Arrlngton and others up on ths official ballot.

The Bishop characterised the condi tion existing In Russia as "the great eat tragedy alnoe the French revolu tion" and painted a picture so real of the want and Buffering among the refu geea from that country that there waa no doubt left In the minds of his hear ers of the conditions prevailing among the thousands of innocent peoples.

OIL SHORTAGE Hi TWO YEARS SEEN 1 Situation Seems to Promise Better Prices Front This j Time Forward. ........ Words of encouragement are offered Oil operators of Kentucky and else where In an artiole in The Wall 8 tree t Journal, which say that, tbe low prices paid for -crude oil through moat of Itll are not: likely to recur again. "So .far as can be seen at present" the article says, "cheap oil la a thing of th past Tha new condition 1 due to th fact that production of vast quantities of cruds oil In Mexico at low cost 4 declining and that In the future production of Mexican ell will b better controlled. .. . , , - 'There never was a time In 'the Oil Industry when It had the advantage of such an abundance of oheap oil as It had in the last few years from the Mexican fields. The producing wells In that country are located only a score of miles In from the seacoast which made the cost of transportation to market small. The wells yielded pro digious amounts of oil over long per iods. The Caslano basin produced an average of more than 100 000 barrels of oil to the acre, an amount not ap proached by any other Held anywhere In the world. "Recently during the glut of oil. Indi vidual producers who had no pipe line to th coast offered oil a low a 10 cents a barrel tn Mexico. That oil Is not available for less than 40 cents a barrel at present-Signer: prices will be established In the next few months. "The two or three companies which will continue as large producer In Mexico because of their reserve acre age will get prices for their oil that will more closely correspond with prices of American oil. and . they will make more money In their buaineas in the next few years than In previous ones. . . 'It Is not probable that production of oil In the United States will main tain th average of 1920-21. It Is likely that consumption of oil will tend to Increase over present rates through Improvement In domestic and export business. The latter Is about one-half of normal at present but do mestic demand holds up surprisingly well in view of general conditions. "Indications now are for a serious pinch in oil within two years. Present big supplies are apt to save the situa tion during the next year, but after then the situation will become acute, In the opinion of those best Informed. "In respect to new field the cost of getting the oil Is sura to Increase. It Is not profitable to market oil from South America with the market for crude tn the United States at $1.80. It will coat fl a barrel to transport the oil through 1,000 mile of pipe line, as must be don from soma of the South American fields, to say nothing of additional costs to get the oil to market" LUNCHEON GUESTS. ,. ; The Huntington Herald-Dispatch says: .Honoring her house guests.

I have ail tbe dally papers I can read but every Sunday morning I ask for the Big Bandy News and I see this week you advise us all to vote for the school amendments.. And before do ing o I win kindly ask you tq answer a few questions. ---- Is bur constitution getting' so frail that It should be changed every year? , Which la the most needed at this time, legislation or execution of whaf laws we have? How many counties in the state failed to elect their County Education Board of the same politics a the coun ty officers? As the Education Boards all work without pay, what kind of service can we expect from them? And last but not least Is this gov ernment by the people and for the peo ple? , Very respectfuUy, BUD WILLIAMSON. (The questions raised in the above article are very timely and worthy of consideration. , We confess that we have no very definite idea as to the value of the propositions, but they hardly can make matters any worse than at present with a chance' for some improvement That Is why we felt that It was fairly safe to advise voting for the amendments. The dream of taking the office out of polltios probably will end like all other such dreams: have eaded. - The plan to give the poor counties and districts the ad vantage of ten per cent extra money to provide certain standard equipment is considered a good move. - Boards serving without salary may give some general, attention to the im portant duties of such positions, but they will not get down to hard work and constant application. It is true also that many salaried officials fail to give efficient service, but the high er powers may and should hold the latter to stricter account for neglig ence or Inefficient performance. There Is no ideal system." We need honest execution of thf laws worse than we need new laws.) . . , - Virginia Hills Raked for Clubman 'Lost 8 Months Bristol, Tenn. Oct 20.
