RICHMOND, KY., WEDNESDAY, OCT. 7, 1914.
The Climax and the Madisonian wore
consolidated purely for business reasons.
By so doing we will save from two to
three thousand dollars annually and will
enjoy the same volume of business now
done by both papers. In fact, we be
lieve that the united strength of the two
papers will give the consolidated paper
a stand that will command additional
business not now enjoyed by either pa
per. The union was mutually agreea
ble and was not forced from either side.
The Waltons desired to sell their inter
est in the Climax, and at the request or
Dr. White, Mr. Lilly, who owned the
Madisonian, bought their interest .
We shall not set out a long list of
things which we expect to accomplish.
Our experience in the past has led us to
believe that performance is better than
promise. Therefore, we make no proc
lamations of our intentions other than
the motto found under the head line,
to-wit: "We stand for the purity of
the home, the supremacy of larw and the
relief of a tax-burdened people." Fur
ther than this we say not, but will allow
our paper to speak for itself.
To the new homes which we enter
this week we have the kindliest of greet
ings with the sincere hope that our pages
may be most pleasing and profitable to
We take this opportunity of thanking
our patrons for the favor of their busi
ness, which they have granted to us" in
the past, and trust that we may merit a
continuance of the same.
We earnestly desire to get personally
acquainted with our patrons and readers
and for this purpose we cordially invite
you to call at our office and make it your
headquarters when in the city.
THE CRECELIUS SCANDAL.
Now comes the startling news that
Secretary of State Crecelius is charged
with some of the wrongful conductgoing
on in the office of Secretary of Slate. If
this is true, he should be drawn and
quartered, for not only is he a thief and
unworthy of the office which he has dis
graced, but he is perfectly willing to dis
credit another man and allow him to be
dishonored and suffer the penalties of
the law for a crime which it appears
that he had not committed. Such a man
is a dangerous animal to be at large.
Nor can we understaud why the grand
jury of Franklin county could not find
incriminating evidence enough to return
an indictment against some one for the
defalcations in the automobile depart
ment. The shortage is there, which is
not denied. The conduct of those in
charge of this department is apparently
incriminating. The mutilations of the
record were bungling and had extended
over a considerable period of time. Cer
tainly those in charge of the books and
papers of the office could see these mu
tilations and could and ought to have
known what was going on. It was their
business to know. With such incrimi
nating evidence, it ought not to be the
least difficult to find the parties guilty
of the crime, and they should be hunted
out and the full penalties of the law vis
ited upon them.
Democracy is on trial. It must clean
its skirts. There has been too much
dallying at Frankfort; too much toler
ance of wrongful conduct and neglect of
official duties on the part of those en
trusted by the people with the business
of the people.
The last years of Governor McCreary's
term may be the best years of his ser
vice to the State. Governor, clean out
the gang that is taking the people's money
and the multitudes will shout your
praises from the house-tops!
By the way, let's give three cheers for
Sherman Goodpaster, an inspector who
Since the breaking out of the Euro
pean war in the heart of civilization and
Christianity, we have heard from the
lips of many men of all avocations and
professions, that Christianity has been
set back for at least one hundred years.

We cannot believe this. On the other
hand we believe that the christian re
ligion will be made stronger and more
far-reaching than ever before in the his
tory or the world. Our own view of the
matter is (as we have heretotore express
ed through the columns of the Madiso
nian), that one great error which the
christian churches of this country, as
well as of the world, was making, was
the neglect of home missions and home
work, and an undue pushing of the for
eign missionary movements. We do not
speak in detriment of the wonderful
work that is being accomplished for the
religious work in the fields of China and
other non-christian countries. That
work should be continued. But the in
evitable result of pushing a foreign work
and neglecting a home work is seen in
the terrible conflict now being waged in
the christian communities. There has
been a lethargy in home missions and in
home church work, the result of which
is a weakening of the moral fiber and a
non-observance of christian duties. -
Besides, the war in Europe is not be
ing carried on by the masses of the peo
ple. It is being conducted solely from
the viewpoint of individual rulers who
give the soldiers their choice between
going to the front and taking their chan
ces on being killed or stay at home with
the certainty of being shot for refusing
to do military duty.
With this view of the case, we cannot
truthfully charge that the soldiers have
lost sight of the christian spirit entirely,
although tneir zeal for the cause of their
country as represented to them by those
in power, may for the moment blind,
them as to the moral teachings of the
It must be borne in mind that on the
field of carnage, Christianity leaves its
impress. It is tb-jre that its nurses ren
der aid to the wounded and to the dying,
and even though the battle may be rag
ing, its tenderest and sweetest sympa
thies are exemplified every minute. The
sun is not lost when it casts its benifi
cent rays on the fury of the tempest.
Neither is Christianity lost when, in the
roar of battle, it touches the bleeding
The lessons of Christianity will be in
delibly impressed upon the bold warriors
and upon the countries whose brave men
have fallen as a sacrifice to the unfeel
ing ambitions of their rulers.
We believe that Christianity will come
forth revivified and strengthed and that
the entire world will be brought under
its sacred influence. Then will there
be "peace, perfect peace" "the parlia
ment of man; the federation of the
The opening of the Democratic cam
paign in the State of Kentucky at Som
erset was an auspicious one for the par
ty. Gov. McCreary, ex-Gov. Beckham,
Senator James and a long list of faith
ful Democrats addressed the multitude
there assembled and were listened to
with rapt attention. It was something
in the nature of a Democratic love feast.
Since then, the Democratic campaign
orators have been busy in various sec
tions of the State and everywhere they
have been met by a united party, de
termined to win a great yictory at the
Gov. Beckham, while a young man, is
probably one of the best-known men in
the State and stands well with the party,
and his following is enthusiastic. Sen
ator Camden adds to this strength of the
campaign his own charming personali
ty. With these two men as the leaders,
the Democracy of Kentucky need have
no fear of defeat,' unless, indeed, such a
thing should be brought about by over
confidence. It is the duty of every Democrat to be
present at the polls on the day of the
election and cast bis ballot for the suc
cess of the party. A party is sometimes
defeated by its stay-at-home vote. A
thorough organization should be effect
ed in this county with a view of bring
ing out every possible vote and let the
county of Madison give for the dislin-
guished nominees one of the largest
majorities in its history. We should be
especially anxious that this result be ac
complished, for the reason that Gov.
McCreary, one of the defeated candi
dates in the primary, would be very
gratified to know that his home county
cast more than its usual vote. It should
be done also because Democracy can be
kept triumphant only when its voters
come to the polls and work with might
and main for the success of its party
principles as well an the success of its
ALWAYS-BEHINeT WITH BUS
INESS. The Kentucky Court' of Appeals is
nearly a yearbehind with' its docket
Probably some of the reasons for this is
that the Judges are engaging in outside
employment. It appears that Judge
Hobson has just issued a book on Plead
ings, and now Judge Carroll announces
a new edition of the Kentucky Statutes.
It takes time and great labor to compile
a book like these. " Therefore, these two
jurists have taken fromhe State valua
ble time sold to it and for which they
are paid at the rate of $5,000 per annum.
Also this time necessarily taken from
the performance of their duties has serv
ed to put the court far behind with its
work to the detriment of the people. If
the shake-up at Frankfort, which has
been promised for some time, comes
around, it should shake a little in the
Court of Appeals rooms.' It would be
well for the Stale Inspector to look on
the inside of these rooms. If he does so
he may find why millions of dollars tied
up in litigation and the lives and liberty
of men are made to await the pleasure
and convenience of this court.
