Convention Louisville, October 25-26. Why I Am For Wilson, (lly Thos. A. Edison.) I'm for Woodrow Wilson. When it's America that's at stake men have got to vote as Americans. It i. just one big thing after another with Wil son. Wilson has won victories by diplomacy that are far more impor tant to mankind than any victories that we could have won by w ar. They say Wilson has blundered. Perhaps he has. But I notice that he usually blunders forward. .Mr. Wilson has now had about four years of experience, and I lliink that he has earned faith anil trust. I do not hink it a logical or sensible thing to change to an inexperienced and un tried man jart for the sake of change. Even our patient and long suffer ing Republican neighbor, the Tribune, ffnds Mr. Hughes' I.usilania state ment too atisurd to be taken scrious- l as a policy of government. It says "The Tribune disagrees with Mr. Hughes in the mater of the l.usitania if by his Ixiuisville utterance he -nt tn exnress the belief that had the German government known in ad vance that the sinking of the l.usitan ia would be followed merely by a sev erance of diplomatic relations it would have refrained from the crime. For four months no effort has been spnred to smoke Mr. Hughes out on the vital issues of the campaign. These efforts have been uniformly un successful, but at last he was com pelled to say something detinite about the Lusitania case. Then he made the most nonscnsicnl contribution to the discussion of the German crisis that the enmpaign has produced. What makes the matter worse. Mr. Hughes must have known that it was both ridiculous and demagogic. HI informed as he is about international relations and foreign affairs, it is in credible that a man of his general in telligence and trained habits of thought should be so ignorant as his Louisville statement implies. New York World. The strength of Woodrow Wilson in Indiana, as in Michigan and Ohio, is a positive and not a negative strength. It is not founded on a sense of the deficiencies of Candidate Hughes, but on the gratitude to the Democratic administration for its legislative record, and above all, for having steered the country safely through foreign entanglements. Any one who gets away from party poli ticians and talks to the plain leople is impressed by the breadth and depth of the average middle Western er's solicitude for a peaceable national pnli. v. The phrase "he kept us out of war," does not seem cheap w emp ty to a large body of Indiunians, at any rate. Indiana has a large Ijuak er population, and it is for W ilson, al most to a man, because of his peace policy; she also has many Punkards and Mennonites within her borders and they are for Wilson for te same reason. The Jewish population of Indiana is said to be for Wilson be cause of the appointment of Mr. Brandies to the Supreme Court bench and the fact that Mr. Morgenthau and Mr. Untcrmyer are among the prominent representatives of their race that are close within the councils of the national administration Cour ier Journal. Mudam Sfate Hegent, Daughters, Ladies and Gentlemen: The Kentucky "Dhuk1,Ui of th American Revolution" most grateful ly acknowledge this royal greeting so gracefully and beautifully express ed by her able and honored "Son.' It is a splendid testimonial of Louis ville's proverbial hospitality and high appreciation of the unselfish, patriot ic work of her "Daughters" and we wish to expresB to the John Marshall and Fincantle Chapters, the Sons of the devolution and Club, our great pleasure in being with them at this time. We wish to assure you of our earnest desire to stand with you on the common ground of patriotism in the fullest sense of the word. It is the sincere desire of each "Daughter" to; "Be a woman! Cn to duty! "Haise the world from all that's low; "Place high in the social heaven; "Virtues fair and radiant bow "I.end their influence to each effort "That shall raise our nature human "Be not fashion's gilded lady, "Be a brave, whole-souled, true woman." When we think of the great, terri ble, bloody struggle of our ancestors to give us America, "the land of the free and the home of the brave," we pause at the magnitude of the re- ponsibility that rests with each one of us to act well our part that our dsd heroes shall not have suffered and sacrificed in vain. Somewhere it haa been said that Woman is the conscience of the world. All that is (lark in man, she must purge into purity; all that is failing she must strengthen into truth. In all the world's clamor, in her she would lind his praise; through II the world's wurfarc, in her she ould find his peace. In a good wo man's presence, all should be nobler than their want.'-' Wo, must believe that this great great organiiation, with its splendid inheritance in the oral uplienve) of our times, In the strenuous days of war and rumors of war," is striving honestly and faithfully to do its part to stand for purity of American life and Nobility of American Standards, usin'f this influence on our sons, brothers, husbands, to such a life of civic purity that this Republic shall be the Beacon Light of the world; that they shall love its history, its standards, its opportunities and say with Pwight: "God bless our native land, "Firm may she ever stand, "Thro storm and night; "When the wild tempests rave, "Ituler of wind anil wave, "Do thou our country save "By thy great might. "For her our prayers shall rise, "To God above the skies "On him we wait; "Thou art ever nigh "Guarding with watchful eye, "To thee should we cry, "God save the State." BELOVED CITIZEN PASSES AWAY. In the death of Mr. Roy C. White the community has sustained an ir reparable loss. His death which oc curred on Tuseday at noon, was not unexpected, and yet the blow was none the less keen when it fell. The dence on Oak street Wednesday after noon at two o'clock, and were conduct ed by Dr. K. B. Barnefl of the First Christian church. In a few well chosen words following the reading of the scriptures, he spoke of the life of this just man comparing -him to Bar nabas of old a good man and true; a man of faith. And all that Dr. Barnes said found an echo in the hearts of those who came to do him honor. Mr. White was for many years,un til his health failed, an earnest work er in the church and Sunday school, being one of its most efficient officers. In his business relations and in his family he wns ever just and kind; and as the days and months drew nearer the end, even so he drew near er to his Redeemer and was unafraid. The burial which took place in the Richmond cemetery at three o'clock. was attended by a large concourse of friends, who came with their offerings I of beautiful flowers to pay a tribute to his memory.. To the stricken wife and children all hearts go out in sympathy. AD PATKES. I see a man wax faint and old On the chilly way. O pray Warm your heart, be kind, I say.

He dwelt at length on the Farm Loan Law, the -8-Hour Law, the Child Labor Law and the Anti-Injunction Law. The speech was a strong one and that it will have a very telling effect on the voters of the city anil county is not to be doubted. GIFT TO LIBRARY. K.

Rapid increuse in total expendi tures for roads und bridges, growth of building and maintenance activi ties under State sunervlsion, and a sharp decrease in the proportion of contributions in the form of statute labor mark the development of high way work in the United States during the past 12 years. These facts are brought out by statistics for the cal endar year li15, recently compiled by the Ofhce of Public Koattls and Rural Engineering of the department. The total length of public roads in the United States outside the limits of incorprated cities and towns was about 2,452,000 miles on Januury 1 1916. Of this, about 277,000 miles. or 11.3 per cent, were improved with some form of surfacing. The mileage of surfaced roads has been increased at the rate of about Kl.OIIO miles a year, and in 1IH5 approximately one half of this increase was made undor the supervision of State highway de partments. In addition, these de partments supervised the mainten ance of nearly 52,000 miles of main and trunk-line roads. The increase in expenditures for road and bridge work in the United SLa'.ys hu-v b?e; frni itn:it"ly $80,000,000 per year in IV04 to about $282,000,000 in KM 5, an increase of more than 2r0 per cent. The expen diture of State funds during this same period increased from about $2,550,000 to more than $53,000,000. In addition, more than $27,000,000 of local funds were spent under State supervision in 11)15, bringing the to: tal road and bridge expenditure man aged by the States to $80,514,6!!. This amount is greater than the total expenditures for roads and bridges from all sources in 1!H)4. The growth in importance of the State highway departments has been rapid. The first of these agencies was created in 1801 in New Jersey, and now some form of highway de partment exists in every State except Indiana, South Carolina und Texas. Since their inception these depart ments had expended to January 1, 1010, an aggregate of $205,350,825 in State "funds for roads and bridge con struction, maintenance, and adminis tration. Tiiev had constructed over r0,000 miles of roads in cn -ope rut ion with the States, t More than 40,000 miles of these mads were surfaced. The falling off in the value of road work performed by statute and con vict labor was from $20,000,000 in li'04, when the total road expendi-1 tures was $80,000,000, to about $15,-1 000,000 in 1015, when the total ox-1 penditures had jyrown to $2X2,000,000. This was a rcd'ji'tinn of 2o per ct-i.t of the total in the fnrmer year tn less than 5'ii per cent of ibi total in 1015. An increase in the better and more expensive types of roads alM is liown by recently compiled statistics. This development has hem' due, in large part, to the great increase in automobile traHic.
