Uxuer ttie caption "Citizenship vs.
Party Kegularity," lhe Elizabeikuown
Juntre Benton delivered another charge
to the Clark county (LTand jury at Win
chester which abounded in courage, pat
riotism and food tense. He airam scor
ed corrupt practices in election and
took occasion to reply to some who are
criticism his radical course. Saying
that il had been charged by some that
he was not a pood Democrat, Judge Ben
tou cited the National Democratic plat
form, the State Democratic platform and
the C'iark County Democratic commit
tee each had gone on reccrd as favoring
clean elections. The Judge then struck
the keynote when he said, "liui if the
matter ever comes to a question of being
a good Democrat or being a good citizen
1 shall choose good citizenship," This
is the kind of courage that wins, and it
is from the kind of a man that is a force
on the bench. Doubtless the corrupt
politicians, hiding under the cloak of
party regularity, thought they could
check Judge Benton's efforts at clean
elections by casting aspersions upon his
Democracy, but these unihoughiful in
dividuals are now fully answesed and
for all time to come. The one hundred
years of existence of the Democratic
party is enough evidence of the fact that
it stands committed to the purity of the
ballot. Judge Benton chall?nged no
party principle or equivocates no party
loyalty in his etTort to reform the ballot.
If t wasn't for his type of men in the
Democratic party, there would be a gen
eral disintegration of the party. But if
the test ever should come between loy
alty to party and loyalty to citizenship,
there are thousands like Judge Benton
who would properly forsake the party
anJ leave their cili zenship unsullied. It
is a knowledge of this fact that sustains
the party and makes it a force in the na
tion. It is the men who will not follow
the party in disgrace and shame that
keep the party out of disgrace and

TO THE TOBACCO GROWERS OF MADISON
AND ADJOINING COUNTIES:
We have sold over our floors thus farover three quarters of a million
pounds of the new crop Burley tobacco and while we have not reached the
extreme top notch price for separate baskets, we have had a better general
average than we had last year. We have every reason to believe that after
the holidays an active market with strong to increasing prices may be
' looked for.
We have never made statements to mislead anyone, make no claims
but those founded on facts. We wish again to repeat:
First, that we give everj teller an absolutely square deal whether
be sells thousands of pounds or hundreds of pounds.
. SecooJ, that we can, and do, get just as much for your tobacco as
any house in the world for same grades.
Third, that we have plenty of room for you and your teams.
Fourth, that we have an up to date commodious warehouse with
every known facility for handling tobacco.'
Our two houses are connected by a viaduct, the old house being
used as a prizing plant wb.ere several of the largest buyers prize all tobac
co purchased in ibis market. We have had four years experience in the
loose leaf lo'bacco business which is worth a good deal to you but costs
you not a penny. We urge you If you have neve never sold with us to ask
any one who has, if our treatment does not warrant every claim we make
and we ask you to compare oar prices with those of any other house in
the 'country. If our claims are true, just get in line with the crowd and
bring your tobacco to us. December 19, will be our last sale before the
holidays but tobacco will be received at any time and sales will be re
sumed December 29. '
Thanking you for your confidence and your business, we are
