Saturday, Oct. 12th, Is" Columbus
Day, tho 420th anniversary of tf'o dis
covery of America.
'More nnd moro tho schools of tho
country aro properly celebrating tho
great days In our nation's history.
It used to bo that the teachers took
advantago of the holiday nnd had r.o
school at all, tho children being dis
banded and tho teachers themselves
taking a- day off as a day of rest.
But in recent years holidays havo
been taken to mean something and
not simply as days for which teach
ers can draw their salaries and con
tribute nothing to tho welfare of
their districts or toward the creation
and malntaluanco of patriotic senti
ment, and loyalty to tho Interest cf
tho country.
Columbus Day is now a legal holi
day for tho public schools of Ken
tucky and many other states, and .t
is t bo hoped, while the 12th comes
on Saturday, und tho schools are
closed on that day, that the Monday

This was Mr. Riley's COth birthday,
but he is still a boy In spirit. RIl?y
was a long time in finding himself,
having been a wandering sign pnlnter
after being confined for a number of
months to dry law books in his
father's law office,
m also had an oxpcrlcnco with n .
traveling patent medicine show, nnd
afterwards edited a paper and almost
filled its columns with his homely
verso, which for a long time was con
sidered so common that tho magazines
would not accept It, And ho is said to
havo won a place in their columns
only by a ruso and In fact a kind of
forgery, having written a poem which
ho attributed to Edgar Allen Poo.
This showed him that the only thing
he needed was a namo.
Riley, Judged by tho salo of his
works, is easily the leading Ameri
can poet today. Throughout the week
exhibits of his works will be made
In various libraries and in many
fechools Riley programs will bo given.

Oa another pago of The Citizen this
week will bo found a statement, re
quired by the- recent act of Congress
amending the postal regulations, show

The Berea Publishing Company, the
owners and publishers of Tho Citizen,
and also the namo of the Editor and
This new regulation provides that
all editorial or other reading, mat
ter for which pay Is received, publish
ed In any paper, shall bo designated
as an advertisement, tho object of
tho requirement being to show tho In
fluences that control the policies of
tho paper and the sentiments express
cd. A good deal of opposition is develop,
ing to these new regulations based
upon tho claim that the press is be
ing muzzled and the constitutional
right of free speech Interfered with.
But the Editor of The Citizen has
no such objections to make, Recent
development In American political
life have shown that the rich and un
scrupulous do, In many Instances, con
trol the prwes and direct the editorial
policies of many papers that many
editors, while they may possess their
own souls, do not always own their
own pens. When such conditions pre

complaint could bo mndo to tho co.
pie's knowing tho source of tho senti

In England they nro now worrying
not about slum children but about
what might bo termed tho youth of
Quality. According to British critics
young men of that country enjoying
tho highest education nnd advantag.-B
at Oxford and clsowhero nro nothing
rnoro nor less than mollycoddles.
They havo no character or backbone,
They learn nothing useful nnd nro
fit for nothing In particular.
When It comes to coping with tho
stem realities of life, young men who
enjoyed fower privileges nnd advan
tages, tho critics assert, can giro
them cards and spades.
Whether theso views of tho critics
aro fully or only partly Justified, tho
decline of this particular class cf
young men in no way threatens tho
British nation. Tho English peoplo
ns a wholo will not lack in rugged
manhood becauso tho pampered sous
of certain aristocratic families nro
shy on backbone.
An English professor onco said that
tho British nrlstocracy has been sav

in tho future, nre men from among
tho masses, men of tho typo of Kclr

fearless manhood aro bred behind tho
plow, in mines, and factories no less
than in colleges and universities. Ex.

Young man:
I want you to read what Mncaulay
says about tho opposing generals nt the
battle, of Merwlnden: j
"Of all the 120,000 men gathered
around Merwlnden under all the stand

that the two feeblest In body were the
hunchbacked dwarf who urged for
ward the fiery onslaught of Franco and
tho asthmatic skeleton who covered
England's slow retreat." j
You are neither a hunchbacked dwarf
nor an asthmatic skeleton.
But suppose you were?
Or, suppose you aro a runt and a
weakling, physically?
Nevertheless, take courage!

Convincing Indications That the
Republican Party Is
Still Dominant.
When President Taft was visiting
his brother In New York a few days
ago the newspaper tvimrters rolled
upon him. After n pleasant chat the
president made n formal statement of
his views on the political slltintlon:

that I felt reasonably sure of my own

j cess of the ltcptihllcnti party 1 wns re-

Today, however, after, n number of In
dications that the lleptihltcau party Is
still the dominant party and that the
expected growth of Democratic
strength has fulled to mntcrinlUe. my

HazarJ, Ky October 7th, 1912.
Tho last week, tho first week of
October, began with a touch of No

year. Farmers wcro busy cutting corn
throughout tho week some Hiving

Circuit Court closed hero a week
ago, after a session which lasted
practically thru tho summer vacation,
first, n special term thru July, In
which wero tried practically all tho
criminal and penal cases of nny im
portance, nnd tho regular term which
began, tho second Monday In August,
and continued throughout September,
being engaged In the trial of civil
causes, and grand Jury work.
After tho regular grand Jury had
been discharged In tho last week of
September, i. new grniul Jury was cm
panncled, nnd brought In nn indict
ment for murder, nnd n largo number
of Indictments for violation of tho lo
cal option Inw. Tho Circuit Judgo nnd
Commonwealth's Attorney havo had
rather a strenuous tlmo of It, this
year and last, In enforcing tho local
option law. As a colisequenco the
Circuit Judge has brought down upon
himself, generally, tho wrath of those
who dcslro to dispense liquor In this
county. It Is to his credit that he has
not flinched from his duty. There
was a tlmo when this county would
havo recalled tho Circuit Judge, If
It had had the recall, and that sim
ply for doing his duty. I think that
tlmo Is passed. It not, It Is passing
Politics Is In a fluid stato In this
county. No ono knows Just what the
outcomo will bo. In .May and June
tho county was tegular, nt least on
tho face of things, nnd at first tho
Chicago convention did not havo tho
effect of changing matters much; but
later on there sprung up In tho coun
try districts quite a sentiment for
Roosevelt, not enough to defeat tho
Itepuhllcan ticket, but enough to
make a three cornered race of It.
This condition, however, may en
danger tho election of A. J. Kirk for
tho Court of Appeals, Tho writer
regards this ns unfortunnte. This Is
tho first tlmo In fifty years that tho
mountain peoplo have had an oppor
tunity to elect a real mountain man,
who Is really capable of holding tho
office. Tho Progressive candldnte now
scorns to ho tho Hon. John I). White,
who claims tho nomination of thnt
t party. When or where ho received it,
( no ono seems to know. At least wo
,havo found no Piegresslvo who ran
tell us. At first tho Hon. T. II. Wak
ey, of Beattyvllle, was oslng as tho
nominee of thnt party; and wo )mo
not learned yet how ho got off tho
ticket and was replaced by Whit".
Perhaps that will bo explained later.
