nondescript who calls himself a mer
chant and aspires to be a politician
the Impecunious newspaper bursting
with envy sizzling with malice foam
Ing all over Itself and Jiamtng with
vulgarity and venom the ward heeler
and the professional disseminators of
filth and hate who have brought the
city Into disrepute These form a very
small per cent of the business men of
Louisville who are tho bone and sin
ew of the city and the beat people
They take no stock In schemes of
spoliation and aggrandizement con
ceived by tricksters In fact the typ
ical merchant of Louisville Is a cheery

If It be true and there is always reason
to doubt a statement made by the Dis
patch is a most grievioua sin and grlev
iously will be atone for It The base
ness of such a theft from such quarter
Is too mean to cont mnlflte
