Daily Thought
All who have meant good work
with their whole hearts have done
good work although they may die
before they have time to sign It
Every heart that has beat strongly I
and cheerfully has left a hopeful lmj I
pulse behind it In the world and bet t
teNd the tradition of mankind

Tile adoption of the primary plan
of nominating the state ticket will
result In reducing the number of
candidates for the Democratic noml
nation for governor before the time
for making entries arrives The
present situation with HendrIck
Johnson Head and Addams In the
race splits the opposition to Me
Creary and gives him an advantage
over the field for It is McCreary
against the field everywhere
This situation was brought about 1
partly by force of circumstances
partly by superior political gifts onI I
the side of those behind tbolc
Creary candidacy and partly by thoI I
attitude taken by the other candi
dates tpnie of whom were brought
out we suspect for the purpose oft t
gathering votes In particular dis
tricts as favorite sons and taking I
them to the anticipated convention
there to be delivered to Den John i
son or whoever appeared strongest
In opposition to McCreary There
was no word spoken against one an
other by the other candidates but f
all directed their abuse at MeCreary I
Consequently wherever there is Op I
position to a local candidate that I
opposition I will rally to McCreary I
unless conditions change
For Instance In the Fret and Sec I
on districts it il 1 Hendrick against
McCreary In Johnsons districts
it js Johnson against McCreary and t
In Heads and Addams districts It I
Is Head or Addams as the case may e
Ire against McCreary By the time
the politicians have recovered from
the shock of the reverse at Louis t

evident that the most rapid growth

Paducah to her credit let it be
said cared for her poor Christmas
and gave gifts to every child But
especial mention Is deserved by the
worthy women of the city who when
Christmas eve crowded close on the
hour of Santa Claus arrival went
to bed tired but satisfied that tho
first streak of dawn would find every
little face 4n the city beaming on a
stocking full of toys and candy And
for that bard working consecrated
efficient agent of Santa Claus and the
spirit of humanity Miss Agnes Ma
bony ye cant find words to ade
quately express our appreciation of
whatshe has done because not even
those most olosoly III touch with her
work can comprehend Ha extent
She labored the hut few days while
was complaining that the ought to go
to bed and send for a doctor There
has been work done the last tow
weeks in Paducah that will be of
lasting benefit

A Crooked Primary
The opposition to the primary was
due to the large expense that would
be entailed upon the candidates and
the notorlus fact that the last two
state primaries were not conducted
fairly Urey Woodson In Owensbpro
Not Very Optimistic
The Times as a Democratic news
paper can and does accept the sltua
tlon Whatever Influence It has will
be exerted to the end that no charge
of fraud shall taint the nomination
and that Its recipient shall be the
strongest man available W B

The primary Is the most practical
plan of giving every voter an oppor
tunity of expressing his choice of a
candidate for an office Conventions
are always controlled by a few poll
tlclans especially county mass con
ventions Owensboro Inquirer
Last Primary Corrupt
But the last experiment ota state
primary was not so successful In
outcome as to make candidates eager
to get Into the game and to accept
the result as well as the subsequent
verdict of the people at the OUIor
Ed Leigh In Bowling Green Messen
Convention Would Ito Corrupt
To any ono familiar with the con
ventions In Kentucky politics at
present It has been apparent foe a
long while that a state convention
to nominate candidates for tbe state
offices would be fraught with much
danger to the party and that fact
was clearly demonstrated at the re

spirit of bitterness and vindictive

manifested by some of those oppos
