While the plan for simple Inau
gural ceremonies is generally con
sldered wise at this time, little cre
dit for its adoption is given or due
to Senator Harding. His stand on
this proposition was not taken un
til after much labor had been per
formed and considerable expenses
incurred arranging for a more
gorgeous and costly inangruation
than had ever been witnessed in
the National Capital. All these
proceedings and plans had the ap
proval of tbe President-elect until
public sentiment was aroused at
what some of the Republican mem
bers of Congress termed as reck
less extravagance. Many people had
bought or ordered costly costumes
for the occasion, and some disap
pointedly recall the lute Republican
campaign slogan: "Lets be done
If taking the penal and charita
ble institutions of Kentucky out of
politics means that they must be
supervised by non-reslilents of the
State and diHciplined ns they are
now, according to reliable reports,
then I do not think even the rank
and file of tbe Republican party en
dorse that course. The Reforma
tory at Frankfort was made the
subject of a strong critical report
by a recent Grand Jury. Attention
was called to the lax system, and
the report condemned tbe practice
of allowing convicts to parade the
streets of Frankfort as J'trustys".
Some of the worst criminals were
allowed such freedom at tbe road
camps that it is admitted that a
number of them bad opportunity
to murder that faithful school
teacher whether any of the convicts
are guilty of that particular crime
Here are the names of some of
the "unfortunates," or fortunates,
rather, who have been allowed to
escape with the crimes for which
they were serving sentences:
Harry Ferland, robbery; James
Wiseman, robbery; C. D. Doff,
grand larceny; George Briscoe,
murder; Harry Jones, grand lar
ceny; Build Ross, Housebreaking;
Ellis Coats, housebreaking; George
Rogers, Htorehouse breaking; Sam
Jones, store breaking; Irvine And
erson, murder; James Kenman,
grand larceny; Prince Ellis, house
breaking; Dan Parker, malicious
shooting; Colonel Sanders, bouse
breaking; C. H. Smith, murder.
These are some of the "unfortu
nates" that hud to be handled so
tenderly that it was necessary to
send to New York to get a Superin
tendent with a heart soft enough to
hold the job under this Republican
non-part isun Board.
Now, if Ohio County Republican
leaders approve such elimination
from politics, why do they not apply
the process to Ohio County where
they have full power? What about
the Ohio County alms bouse? Has
that been subject to the spoils sys
tem? Until I am convinced that a
man without any politics, is more
honest oi more humane than one of
settled political convictions, I can
not prefer a non-partisan board ap
pointed by a partisan Governor.
