The Sun it always up to date Yes
terday afternoon it gave the publIc I
the lint newt of the terrible disaster
at Dawson two hours before one of
itsao called metropolitan contempora
ries attempted to keep the pace by Is
Going an extra with the stale lIewl
The Sun was on the street with the
first news of the catastrophe at 4
oclock Its regular hour for appearing
Detail were meagre but the news
quickly spread lid the extra copies
lent out were quickly disposed of and
the telephone was kept busy for leT
eral hours replying to the questions
atxed The Bun caq always be depend
ed on for newt that it reliable and
new We get ont no extras but give the
public the news in the Tegular editions
and saTe the expense of extras except
In very nnniual cases
Paducah progress Is allured but
in spite of not because of the clue
of men who are sometimes in office
If we had proRretilv men In charge
of affairs men who consider the Inter
eateof the public as a whole and
not the Interests of a part of the
public our growth would double and
treble Take the case of the town cow
for example There may be and evi I
dently are hundred of the animals
in the city but no sensible man be
liever a majority of the taxpayer
ojvn cowl Yet for the benefit of a few
cow owner the cows are allowed to
run at large It ii evident to any per
son who knows anything of sanitation
that sewerage promotes It yet no
effort has ever been made to compel
people to connect with the sewerage
the only apparent reason being that a
few can ill afford it
