In that event It Is claimed that
Governor Patterson will continue TO
hold office and turn it over at his

THE CITIZEN
Devoted to the Interests of the Mountain People

OUR DEBT OUR INDICTMENT
IThere are but few communities in eastern Keutucky that have
I not felt tho influence of one or more of the many denominational
schools that have been established within the last thirty years
There is nut a single county in all the mountain district that bas not
Ii been blessed with one such school mjd some of them have had and
now have two or three
IAnd these same denominations Lave done great thjngs in other
I ways In some places they have established and maintained
churches in other places they have tided andencouraged churches
already established or again they have simply supported Sunday
schools Everywhere are the evidences of this work It is manifest to the
casual observer who travels through the country in any direction
Here are school buildings structures of wood or of brick Baptist
Methodist Presbyterian Congregational Disciple and Episcopal
Sometimes they are found in the county seats sometimes they are
in smaller villages and sometimes they stand out alone on the heads
of tho creeks
Aud tvhere tho schools are not found the churches may be seen
seldom a log structure more often framed and painted white with
piro pointed heavenward sentinels all of uplift of progress
But the chief evidence of this work of the churches is not
phYlllcal It is spiritual It can quly ho realized fully lIy one
I whoso memory can span the thirty or thirtyfive years who can
compare the then with the now in natters moral intellectual and
aesthetic or by one who must call himself a product of these schools
and churches
churchestit way for those of us who have been born and raised in
the mountains to estimate tho magn tide of the influence for good
exerted upon us and our homes by these two forces the schools and
churches since this movement of uplift began is to imagine its ab
lIonceto picture our lives and communities unblessed by these two
agencies Where wouldwe be tlTll would lie our condition O It
is not anything to boast of as it is but the thought of what it would
have been is one that we do not wantto entertain very long
We are face to face then with a great obligation Our debt is
great
greatBut
But the significant thing is not that the schools and churches were
established and have been doing their work The significant thing
is that they were established in nearly every instance by oulsiders
t that they have been officered chiefly by outriders have drawn their
chief support from beyond our borders quite largely from without
tho state And the most significant thing of all is that we have ac
quiesced iu all this We have done morewe have invited it Gladly
have we received tho gifts and the help We have plead and still
plead for them We have almost had our feelings hurt because our
cries were not heard more quickly and our demands more fully met
But the response has been most generous and why ptcuuse
thousands of eolle believed what the papers said about usbelier
belieflx i7 no strongly that they were willing to open their purse strings
for tfllIfere willing to spend their lives with us and for us And
not only did they believe what they heard about us they thought
our cry was sincere they took it for our confession of need
o And it was sincere but wo were slow to see that the plea and the
acceptance of help were a confession and later on thai our great
debt WHS and is our indictment
Every plea for assistance for an individual frr a lurch or lor
a school by us or acquiesced in by us is a confession and every ben
eficiary every church erected or maintained in whole or in part by
outside contributions Missionary Moneyand every Fchcol estab
Ii lib Oll supported or endowed by the benevolent beyond our borders
is our indictment
It is nobodys shame that the work bus been done It is to tho
eternal credit of all the good The shame and the disgrace are ours
not that it has been done but that we did not do it ourselves
Fora hundred years our common schools and our High Schools
ought to have done all the work that the Denominational Schools
have found it necessary to do for us and much more We ought to have
been lIeJC8uprortin and selfgoverning and we ought to be so now
But until we are able to help ourselves or as long as we un
willingly confess and the indictment stands as a true bill against us
for the sake of consistency we shall have to be rather meek under
criticism unless it is plainly mercenary and malicious
This is what the editor thinks on the other side of the question

PLAN TO SPEND 10000
Work of State Association for Study
and Prevention of Tuberculosis
What Ten Thousand Dollars from
Red Cross Seals will do in tho check
Ing of consumption In Kentucky Is
explained In a bulletin Issued by the
Kentucky Association for the Study
and Prevention of Tuberculosis
Counting every available bed for
consumptives in Kentucky them are
at the present time accommodations
for hardly 125 tuberculosis patients
This Is just about one bed for every
160 consumptives In the State If
sufficient hospital accommodations
aro provided for only those who are
too poor to pay the full price for
their treatment fully 10000 more
beds in special insttltutlons for tuber
culosis would be needed at once Tho
immense outlay necessary to provide
and maintain so many beds In hos
pitals makes It imperative the Ken
tucky Asosciatlon for the Study and
Prevention of Tuberculosis declares
that such Institutions be erected
from public money either municipal
county or state In order to get ap
propriations for public hospitals for
tuberculosis agitation is accessary
and in order to create a campaign of
agitation organization is demanded
But In order that an organization ma y
carry on an effective campaign funds
are needed
These funds it Is proposed to se
cure in as many communities as pos
sible from tho sale of Red Cross
Seals
The State Association cites one
Illustration of the way In which a
small sum spent In education has secured

York State Charities Aid Associa
I tion in the three years 1008 1009 and
1910 has spent in the upstate por
