The dunghill policy of the present I
city administration in the bond ques I
j tion ii almost equal to repudiation ofI
which their predecessors In office were I
I unfortunately gntlty Judge Evans of I
1 the federal court decided that the I
overtherlver bonds are legal and I
that the interest on them malt be
paid The city decided to accept the
i Judgment > i final and the council 10 c
Toted The bondholder who hare
been deprived of the use of the money t
that was due ai interest on the bond 0
for several years are entitled to InterII
pit on that interest It Ii just ta b
much due them aa the interest Ihelfg
If a man had t600 interest due him Ii
from the city on a certain date and b
the city didnt pay it he Ii entitled I
to Interest on that 500 the me of ie
which he had teen deprived of by the
I oily through no fault of his own
The council Monday night decided tor
borrow 13600 and pay off the con
pout on which no compound interest
ii demanded Those on which the C
compound interest ii demanded will I
j not be paid not now at lead This I
ii a skin game It Ii I an effort UnI I
Jilt worthy of peblla officials and goodC
builneii men to bluff the holders of C
those bond out of what Ii justly due I
them It ii equivalent to laying If t
youll knock off the compound Inter 1
est well pay off the coupons if you
dont we wont pay them off until we 1
get ready All good citizen wantI I I
the bondholder to get the interest
1 that is due them and the interest onI I
that interest which has remained un
paid for several years through the stu
pidity of a former Democratic council I
If the city bad paid the interest when
c l it was due the bondholder would have
i I been able to invest it 10 it would yield
r I them something It was withheld
and they should now be paid for being I
deprived of iti use If the city can
v get enough money to pay off the con
poni without the compound interest
it can just u easily obtain money
In Irving Enlckerbock
ers New York one reads of
the little ichoepen who con
cluded that the bed way to
get over a bill in bit path
was by taking a two mile
running start and then leap
over it But when he reached
i the foot of the hill he was so
i tired that he tat down and
retted himself There be
many advertiser like the
little ichoepen They start
out valiantly enough and go
i at a brisk gait for a season
and then lie down The small

The report of the joint committee 01
the general council on the water flits
tlon plant Ii one that will donbtlfr
meet with the approval of the people
who have long wanted filtered water
and have never had an opportunity t o
secure it unless It ii now It u pro
posed by the water company to put In
the nitration plant at no cost to the
people and In addition to reduce the
suhydrant rental to the city and save
al5000b during the life of the fran
chise on condition that the clause 01
the franchise giving the city the right
every five yean to buy the plant be
abrogated The rereal of this will
euable the company to Interest foreign
capital in the concern and by an in
creasing its stock raise the money need
cstary for present needed extensions
and improvement and for those that
ara certain to come within the next
few yean ai the city expand thus
benefiting the city In every possible
way and absolutely depriving the peo
pie of nothing at It Ii patent to every
sensible person that the posilblllty of
the cltyi ever being able or willing
to buy thevater works Ii very remote
Indeed It Ii I probable that the gener
al council will order the question vot
ed on at the November election which
Ii desired by the water company and
If it U it will then be up to the peo
ple to decide whelther Paducah If to
have filtered water or not
Yesterdays registration shows that
there are many voters in Paducah
who failed to register The Demo
crats showed gain over the first days
registration lad year and the Repub
lican showed losses The reason of
this may lie In the fact that today a
Democratic primary ii being held and
it war known In advance that those
who expected to vote today had to
register yesterday and alto in the fact
that the Democratic committee baa In
measure opened the doors and a
number of persons not heretofore vot
log the Democratic ticket have in all
probability registered M Democrat
in order to vote in the Democratic
primaries The fact that yesterday
registration Is short of the first day
last year and that the Democrats
have gained and the Republicans lost
Indicates that the above Ii correct
in part at least There It no reason
why any Republican voter of Paducah
should flop over and vote the Demo
cratic ticket with the tax rate tl86
and the condition of municipal attain
the wont ever known With both the
cltr and county borrowing and all
under Democratic rule If the people
bent got enough of the Democratlo
grog they ought to have The Repub
lean party in Paducah ii now la a
better condition than ever before and
when the vote Ii counted in November
it will be clearly shown that the peo
ple are not going to longer put up
with Democratic incompetency and
mismanagement In Paducah
Mr W R Hearst the millionaire
owner of the New York Journal and
several other similar newspapers hat
accepted the Democratlo nomination
for congress in the Eleventh district
of New York In his speech of ac
ceptance he advocates public owner

thracite coal mine and other things

It Is likely there it ai much room
for improvement and reform in these
s i In the railroads and tolegiaphi if
not more for the yellow journals are
the wont menace that edit against
public Institution and the peace and
harmony of the people Half of the
strife and dissatisfaction rampant In
this country are the direct results of
the effort of inch papen at Mr Hearst
