Ye are not among those who decry the energies of the office-seeker, unless he grows intolerably persistent. The neople voted for a change in the wliole flicial family, and the sooner the "ras cats" are turned out, the better for the democratic administration. The party can hope for nothing of benefit by re taining them. We shall be glad to see a law requiring that every official be in sympathy with the administration of which he is a part, and making the ten ure of office coexistent with the chief Nothing can be accomplished for good in a bouse divided against itself. Every one of the 39,000 appointees in the ser vice of the government, not protected by the Civil Servi ie Law, should be made to go as soon as practicable, but in decency and in order. As the governor of South Carolina said to the governor of Xetth Carolina, "It has been a long time between drinks," so it has been a long time since the democrats have tast ed of the flesh pots of office and their desire to get to the pie counter is but natural. Many of those now seeking office were largely instrumental in elect. ing Mr. Wilson and the created should not get too high above the creator. We are con Hdent that the President realizes this, and is disposed to make appoint ments as soon asthe most worthy can be ascertained. This can not be done in a twinkle. It takes time and the very ur gent must b3 taught a lesson. Rugged old Andrew Jackson never said a more popular and a truer thing than "to the victors belong the spoils," as much as some people may inveigh against the system. There should be a change all along the line, and while a disposition of the patrouage may work the. President overtime, he cannot en gage in a more popular business to the country and to his administration. In this connection it is gratifying to note that the now Postmaster General will ask the President to revoke former President Tart's order placing 35,000 postmasters in the classified service or that the republican incumbents shall be subjected to merit tests along with dem ocratic applicants. It is hoped that one or the other will be done. Mr. Taft's little political play should be counter acted in some way. W. P. Walton In Lexington Herald. O PER A HOUSE Attention! Poultry Raisers.

This expression is used entirely in the sense that appeals to the inner man of the nation and not necessarily to those who look for stereotyped methods of government. It became known that President Wilson and his family, all of them, are averse to the usi of liquor or wine in any form. Intoxicating liquors will have no place in the White House during the next four-years, unless the President's views undergo a very sharp change. The Premier in the President's cabi net, SecTetery of Stale Bryan, as is well known, has been a prohibition advocate for many years. On one occasion Mr. Bryan would have made it a national is sue and it was due to his e Herts that the prohibition legislation in Nebraska was put into effect. It is well known that Speaker Clark is a "teetotaler" and has been for many years. The fact that a large portion of the democratic majority in the Senate and House is from the South, where prohibition is general, makes certain the fact that there will be little wine and less wassail than baa been known in Wash ington for many years. There never has been so dry a pros pect in the White House tince the days of President Hayes, when Mrs Hayes excluded wines and liquors from the ex ecutive mansion immediately on becom ing its mistress. The sideboard, on which the wine glasses and decanters of that administration once were display ed, now graces a local barroom.

Millions upon millions of tons of dirt and solid rock, which stood a giant bar rier to the project, have been swept aside by the world's greatest engineers and the skill of the best workmen on the globe Americans. Hills that were mountains have been divided, conquer ed by the progressiveness and aggress iveness of American spirit and determi nation. Where the greatest men of the world's past history in scientific achieve ments have failed. Col. Goethals, of the U. S. army, backed by American dol lars and brains, has succeeded, and when the waters of the Atlantic merge with the willing waters of the Pacific, a page of history, remarkable, epoch-making history, will have been written. No amount of reading will give one the true impression of the stupendous task that the government took up in the builaing of the Panama Canal. Moving pictures of the entire route were taken when President Taft made his official inspection of the Canal from December 19 to the 31, 1912. These pic tures will be exhibited in a short while in this city, and no one of public spirit, none that are interested in the welfare of the nation, should fail to see these pictures.

Peculiar Accident While plowing in a field near his home, in the eastern part of the county, a few days ago, the team of mules of Wm. Philippi suddenty plunged thro' the earth which suddenly gave way un der them, and one of the mules went in to a sink hole about 15 ar 20 feet deep. Securing the aid of a number of men, they finally dug the animal out of the hole, but it died in a short time from the injuries sustained. No evidence of a sink hole was to be seen by Mr. Phil ippi, and the first intimation he bad of it was when the earth suddenly gave away beneath his team. Somerset Jour nal. Attention, Merchants !

The Nicholasville News ha the fol lowing editorial insupportof Judge Ben ton's vote buying in that county: "In his instructions to the grand jury Monday, Judge Benton touched very strongly on the corruptness in buying votes in elections, lie stated that the better class of voters all over the county was disgusted with this corrupt method of securing office, and that he believed they were going to put a ttop to it. The News has heard it stated that there were fully 800 floaters in Jessamine, who at every election like the one to be held on August 2d sell their votes." Federal Patronage in Ken tucky. With great regard for Vice President Marshall's good feelings, we venture to express the doubt whether his interfer ence, in the distribution of Federal pat ronage in Kentucky will be beneficial to the Vice President, to the democratic party or to the public service in this State. The government needs an able and an efficient collector of internal revenue at Danville. The Vice President knovs one gentleman in Danville whom he con siders well fitted for the place. Mr Wallace's home- reputation suffices to sustain this contention. Yet it cannot be assumed that the gentleman from In diana is quite so well fitted to express opinions in r gard to this matter M the member of Congress from the 8t h dis trict of Kentucky, or as the Senator from Kentucky, or the citi.ens of Dan villa. Patronage should not go by favor. We have made some progress in an of fer to establish the merit system. It ha not been eminently successful. It has been loaded down with many unrea sonable demands, but the first claim to place should be merit, and that claim should bo established by examination. The recommendation by th9 Vice President of a special candidate for col lector in the 8ih district of Kentucky is based upon the fact that these two- gen tlemen "have spent their summers to gether in Michigan for several years." To know Mr. Marshall must be a lib eral education in itself, Probably it has i l it special training for the duties of collector of internal revenue in Ken tucky, but this is not manifest. The trouble is, we have1 in politics too much of the rule of action described in one of the parables of scripture, where the un just judge rendered the decision, not be cause the litigant was enticed to it, but because he was importunate. This is written with no desire to in terfere with the selection of Mr. Wal ltce, if the selection of Mr. Wallace is determined to be the best possible after a careful examination of his endorse ments, his records and his political backing, but some one ought to say to the Vice President, and to others, in the distribution of patronage: It is well for every man to "shinny on his own side."

Nancy Hanks 2:04, the former cham pion trotter, now owned by Edward and Joseph Madden at Hamburg Place, will be bred this spring to The Tramp, premier stallion at Elinood Farm. Nan cy Hanks, in addition to being a really great trotter, has accomplished more by far in the stud than any other champ pion trotting mare and for this reason it is especially interesting to know to what stallions she will be bred each season. J. S. and W It. Estill, owners of The Tramp, think there is a good chance to get her in foal despite her age. She is not in foal this spring but lost a foal in 1911, and appears to be as good as a mare little over half her age. II '4 No trouble about getting your money if you burn out.
