Ouu evening contemporary has
not yet taken advantage of its opportunity

Bays "it is impossible to tell how the
futuro conduct of the Republican
party will Impress the country, but it
is evident that thus far Republican
success has been a disappointment."
Thus far! About four weeks. Not a

hardly a start mado toward
placing Republicans in the offices
throughout the country. What Mr.

worst species of political croaking,

The $200,000 appropriated for tho
flood sufferers by the Government at
Washington is but a beginning.
More, much more, will bo needed to
prevent actual famine in a country
that under ordinary circumstances
would support a population of many
, t,ijnes that there at present. Four
hundred thousand people are said to
be in actual want now in the Yazoo
delta alone. The government
is therefore but fifty cents
per bead for them, to say nothing of
thousands elsewhere. No doubt the
states in which the suffering exists
will also respond for the relief of their
own people, but probably in tho end
tho greater part of the relief and
assistance must come from charity.

The contract called for a

A dispatch from Paducah Tuesday
stated that the city authorities
had decided to repudiate payment of
principal and interest on $100,000 of
bonds issaed ten years ago in aid of
some railroad. Tho reason asaigucd
therefor is a mere technicality. It
being alleged that these bonds were
authorized at an election at which tho
people also voted on another issue.
It is to be hopcl ihat the people of
Paducah will do no such thing.
Their credit is worth much more thou
$100,000, and it will bo ruined if
they resort to repudiation. No matter
how hard the burden, the policy
of honesty pays best in the long run.
Paducih is a well-to-do little city,
and to take advantage of a technicality
to avoid the payment of a debt
is without excuse.
The statement does not properly
represent the facts. A lie facts are
simply that the matter was brought
before the council at its lost meeting
and referred to a committee for investigation.
No action beyond this
has been taken, and the prevailing
sentiment seems to indicate that none
will be taken. The city of Paducah
will pay its honest debts.
St. Louis makes an excellent
showing of Republican growth. The
Republican candidate for Mayor in
the election of last Tuesday was dec
ted by a plurality of 24,000 and a
majority of 6,000 over.aH in a total
vote of 91,500. Zicgenhein, against
whom charges of official corruption
in connection with his administration
of the office of tax collector havo
been agitated by the Democratic
press for years, notwithstanding his
full vindication on an official
investigation, ran considerably
behind his ticket, the remainder be
ing elected by an average majority
of 20,000. It will be worth while
to show by comparison what this result
means. In 1892 a Republican
plurality for President of 859 was all
that could be boasted. A year later
one of the ablest and most popular
Republicans in "St. Louis, Mr. Wal-bridge,
against whom no breath of
scandal could be brought, was elect- J
cd by a plurality of 2,835.
plurality in the city was 15,617 ;
Ziegcnhcin in 1897 receives 24,000
plurality, while a majority of the Republican
ticket was elected by nearer
forty thousand plurality. St. Louis
has done herself proud. She is a
great city.
Our morning contemporary after
devoting a column of apacn to the
subject of a suggested repudiation of
nn indebtedness of the city, in opposition
thereto, comes forward in an
editorial of considerable length advocating
the repudiation of a debt of
tho city to tho Sun, its business rival.
Consistency is not a jowcl in which
the "Register" is wont to revel. It
is truo tho opposition to such payment
is based on the alleged illegally
of the contract. Rut so is the
proposed rejection of bonds given by
tho city to the railroad. In the one
caso as in tho other, the order was
made in accordance with supposed
authority. In both casos the city
reaped the benefit. In tho latter
case the fees collected by the city
e Elector will much more than reimburse
the city for the outlay. The
allegation that the contract by tho
city was illegal is the gratuitous assumption
of tho editor of the "Register,"
who may be a great constitu
tional lawyer, but has yet to bo so
recognized. It is presumed the distinguished
gentleman who officiates
as legal council for the eity i worthy
at least as much credit on a question
of this character as the editor of the
"ReRistcr." The trouble with the
"Register" is simply that tho money
paid by the city for legitimate services
by tho Sum is not going into its
own coffers but those of its success-
ful business rival. "Tho Law in the
Case" has little to do with it.
Apuoi'03 of the much talked of
harmony betwecu tho factions of tho
Democratic party wo print the following
from Clinirmau John Johnston,
of the Democratic state central
oommlttcc, which Is certainly encouraging
to some J coplei
"Some time ngo I thought that
we should hac a Into convention,
but there Is now too much harmony
in the air, and I think we should

of pickets of tho opposing armies

that they played cards and ex

should be shot, in order to break up
this unusual friendship between hos
tile forces. The same plan may have
to bo applied in Kentucky politics.
On tho samu subject the "Courier-Journal"
has the following to say:
"It is cosy to say 'let's get to
gether.' Hut there must bo some
honest basis for getting together.
Unless men have entered into a corrupt
agreement to deceive and betray
the voters under tho rendy

provisions of the McKiulcy law. The
nature of this opposition indicates
that thev are wholly Ignorant of the
true state of affairs and, misled by
the continual misrepresentation of tho
free traders of this country, have
gained the impression that the tariffs
to be laid are levied for the solo purpose
of preventing- their exports to
th's country. It is probable not one
in a hundred of those foreigners, who
arc so loud in their denunciation of
the Dingley law understands tho real
demaud for revenues or the neces
sities of tliis government which com
pel the levy of a large amount of
taxes in some form. If they did, of
course it would be matter of no concern
to them. Neither can we afford
to permit them to shape our
policy. The policy of this country
must he to provide in its own way for
the revenues required, just as it pro
vides the laws for the government of
the people. Only the interest of this
country and of its agricultural, manufacturing,
mining and commercial
development can properly be tnkeu
into considcaation. Tho loud talk
about retaliation, withdrawal of trade,
etc., is mere bluff. It has been indulged
before on every occasion of
the enactment of a protective tariff,
but when time camofor business under
it the merchants of those countries
have found it most proiitablc to do
business with Uncle Sam, and so the
trado goes on just the btime. The
largest export business wc have ever
done has been when we had a high
protective tariff. The largest adverse
balances of trade have been
under low tariff.

lleforc long there will bo found
editors nnd orators by the thousand
reiterating the assertion that sales of
bonds during tho last four years haw
not been mado necessary by any deficiency
or revenue. It is therefore
important without delay to bring to
gether tho facts which are fully shown
in the latest compared with earlier
olllcial records. If it were p ssiblo,
by any demonstration, however complete,
to put an end to tho traveliii"
faculty of a particular untruth, this
particular one might with ease be put
quito out of tho running. Hut so long
as that untruth is the only defense
that can be made for '.ho conduct of
a Democratic congress and administration,
it is certain to be repeated
and by many persons actually believed.
It may bo worth while,
nevertheless, to cito the precise documents
which demonstrate this untruth,
so that as often as possible it
may bo confronted with tho record.

that the location of Rivera's head

Troops to the number of 1500,
