The Franchise Privilege A Diity It is the duty of every legsl voter to go to the election and cast a vote for a candidate for every 4'ect ve office. In a democ racy like ouis, pub i- servants and off.ee holders must be chosen by the people. It would be urtrue to y 'hat all voters are good, or have the best interests of the community at heart when they vote. It would be too pessimistic to say that the majority of tho voters are bad, and only vote for selfibnes or for personal gain. It wou'd be tiuu, however, to say that if the good honest voter becomes ind (Tercnt, luke warm, and disinterested in the matter pf choosing public officials, the ''scalovag" and irresponsible ele ment of our citizenship wi.l control the elections. A great many people vote the way their fathers voted. Many vote for poli kal adtartage. Still others vote to sustain pride in party control, and not a few vote for money; while a great host of our c'titens vote for the good of the community. There was a time when the man who crossed his ticket was looked upon aa a peculiar and unspeakable "specimen of humanity." But that time has passed. The ranks of the independent voters are getting larger and larger. Men are holding their judgments in reserve in order to use them to advantage when all the candidates are In the lime-light It ia that class of voters who are mot ashamed nor afraid to "acratch" who will aave the American democracy. A new vitaliting and renovating agent introduced Into Ameri can politics in the last two yeara in the form of "Woman Suf frage" ia going to have a tremendoua influence upon public af. fairs. The women have no "act" polit cal opinions. They came into the field twenty millions rtrong, Impressionable and unpol luted by machine-made politics. They art the champions of moral reform. They are the champions of clean government, of honest elections, and efficient men of good character in all poaitona. Tho woman must vote, and, above all, the good women must vote, be cause there are those with the questionable characters or low ideals whose votes will be aought and secured by unscrupulous politicians, and who will become an added element to the force of unrighteousness that run rampant ia certain sections of our country. ' f v If the good women do hot join wither, frtst man ia New York City, the "aooUliims. thugs and preMUutea" of the city will get a firm hold upon it If the good women do not join with the beat of tho mountain in ecu ring officer who will enforce the law, moonahining will continue to curse our grand old hills and pile up crime to the ahama of our State. The prohibition amendment ia here to stay. Our fight is not one of stamping out a legalised liquor traffic, but one of stamp ing cut the moonshine still, the bi nd tiger and the bootlegger. Politicians, while they are candidates, usually tell you that they believe in law enforcement and atamping out the illegal traffic; in doing everything that is possible to be done to bring n state of order and obedience to law. Too much faith cannot be placed upon what the aeeker after an office saya in aome indirect way during the heat of a political campaign. The thing for a voter to do, either man or woman, ia to find out how the liquor element stands. Who are the bootleggers supporting? Who ere the moonshiners supporting! It ia a aafe wager that the cand'dates upon whom law breakers unite can be depended upon but little to put those same law breakers in jail and maybe the penitentiary. These are pertinent questions that come to voters not only of the mountain counties, but of the Blue Grass counties of Kentucky. Whst Is the personal attitude of your candidates toward the use of liquor? Hava they ever indulged in liquor dr'nking since prohibition went into effect? Since the use of liquor as a beav erage has become contrary to law, how many candidates running for office and seeking your vote have indulged in it? These are some of the questions to ask yourself in electing men to office. Don't go to the politician, to the county chairmen, to the pre cinct committeemen, or to the man who haa pronvsed his political organization that he will pile up a big vote in hla precinct, for they are necessarily biased, and must refrain from g ring un pleasant reports about their own candidatea. Go to non-partisan church members and to the communit ea where these candidatea live and find out how they stand on law enforcement and morals. Go to the communities that are known to be centers of vice and law breaking and find out who the law breakers are all for, and you will have a fair index to the character and the law enforce ment prospects of your candidate. The breaking up of lawlessness in the form of whisky making and whisky selling la the. big issue with the people of southern Madison county. Cor science demands that every unbiased per son make a thoro investigation for himself or herself and vote for the stamping out of the liquor traffic. from tne Un;t-d States wns very simnlq.

Tho co-f"rnre on the Irish ques tion is still going on, tho It came close to b-eak"ntr up because of a l;lerrnm sent by Va'era. the rrsl dnt prtendor. to the Pope of Roma. King George had sent a courteous ettr to tho Pope in response to nn-urri-sr peace a'd In it referred to the Irish as "my people." The t!e "m warned the Pope to beware of King Georee and asserted that tho delegates were in London as repre sentatives of a free country. The Fnllsh prem'er, before opening the eorfere-ce. sent a messenger to Ire land and demanded that a clear cut answer be riven to the question whether Ireland mused to be con sidered a part of the Empire or not, and he placed the matter before Par liament to be sure of ita support The atte-t:on of the worid Is now turning to the Disarmament Confer enee whose members are be pinning to arrive in Washington. Chirac ad Japanese delegates are already there, and those from Enslnnd Itly, and Belgium arc close at hand. .

Other leading Englishmen were equal !v cordial when they became convinced it was not to act in opposition to the League of Nations. A'l the coon tries are sending the'r strongest men, which is a good omen of the serious purpose to attain some appreciable result. The conference should feel the support of public sympathy as it carries on Its deliberations. SERVICE TO AID LECIONERS MEMORIAL State Chapters Take Un Task of Raialng Panda for Building Washington, Nov. 2.
