The old lino Republican State
leaders who were In charge of
party affairs lor many years and
have been shoved aside by A. T.
Hert, the big moneyed man and
National Republican Committeeman,
staged a plan this week at the
meeting o! the State Republican,1
Central Committee whereby they
hope to regain control and at the
same time give Hert and his local
protege, Chesley Searcy, a black
eye. Just as the old proverb says
in regard to woman, "Hell hath no
fury like a politician scorned," and
the old lino Republican leadors in
the State have resented the dicta
tlon of Hert, a new-comer, and they
claim his backing comes from the
big interests in the Republican
nartv in thn East. Then again the
old liners1 were gottlng a little Jeal-

,. -Judge John D. Carroll, of New
Castle, announced his candidacy for
the Democratic nomination fo Gov
ernor this week and declares for
woman suffrage, national prohibi
tion and a business administration
at Frankfort. Judge Carroll's wide
acquaintance due to his long career
on the Appellate bench makes him
a formidable candidate and his
friends and supporters say that his
nomination would bring the support
of many independent voters to the
Democratic ticket in November.
Prof. L. E. Foster, of Christian
county, announces for Superintend
ent of Public Instruction, and it is
VBaId In his behalf that in addition
to his record as School Superin
tendent of Christian county he
would prove a strong addition to a
ticket in November, citing the fact
that he was elected in 1913 and
1917 in his homo county, which is
normally Republican. In 1917 he
was elected without opposition and
it might be added that Christian
county gave Bruner, tho Republi
can nominee for Senator, GOO ma
jority over Gov. Stanley last No
vember. . , .
As forecast in thecs columns last
week, the local Bolshevik! admin
istration sent out thousands of its
ALIBI book to tho voters, tho book
bearing the misleading title of
"Facts!" The voterB look in vain
for tho "facts" about why near
Mayor Smith lets Chesley Searcy
fill tho position of Mayor, why Davy
Rose resigned a $2,500 job, why
the taxpayers were Btung with a
motorboat house; why County Clerk
Neutzel delayed the soldiers' vote;
why City Assessor Baldauf raised
assessments sky high; why prison
ers went hungry at tho Jail; why
the Workhouse conditions are bad;
why the City Hospital Ib alwayB In
a muss; why near Mayor Smith
used tho city machine and gasoline
to run to Chillicothe when others
couldn't use even their "flivver;"
,why Sam Owens la a guest instead
- 'of a prisoner at tho Jail; why they
' released John Doe and who got the
money for this flim-flam case, and
last but not least why don't we get
real policemen and firemen instead
of Keystone comedians and "hicks.
Much space Is devoted to the
Keystone police in the litle "alibi"
book, and to further bolster up the
weak link Chief Lud Petty has
begun a lecturing tour to convince
- or hypnotize the public Into tho
belief that we have real police. Sun

"Keystone boys were doing, and what

to fool so many at one time, witn

night's reel with Hardin, tho ex
street car conductor, and Desurno,
the ex-coal wagon driver, would
have been a scream. The two Key
stoners started teir jamboree with
yeast highballs and ended up by
driving everyone to the trenches,
although one soldier dared both to
drop their pistols and clubs and he
would whip them single-handed.
Hardin played the William S. Hart
role and said that he was going to
kill everyone In sight except to
leave six for pall-bearers. Two
frightened citizens, and by the way
supporters of Smith in his race,
begged to bo among tho six left for
pall-bearers and claimed they had
had past experience In that role. It
certainly was a big night for the
Keyatoners, and while tho celebra
tion was going on several houses
were robbed In different parts of
the town. Gee! what a series of
stormy meetings and fiery resolu
tions would be scattered by tho
men's Federation If this was a
Democratic administration.
Pono Benedict has named Rev.
Joseph F. McGrath, parish priest ot
St. Patrick's church, Tacoma. dio
cese of Seattle, Wash., to be Bishop
of Baker City, Oregon. Baker City
was left without a Bishop when
Bishop O'Reilly was transfered to
Lincoln early last summer. Rev.
Joseph McGrath was born In Ire
land about forty-seven years ago.
He made his theology course at
Montreal and was ordained there In
1895 by Archbishop Fahre for the
diocese of Springfield, Mass. His
first pastoral labors were spent as
assistant to tho well known Father
McCoy, of the Springfield diocese.
Father McGrath later spent two
years doing missionary work among
the Indians of Northern Michigan.
The hardships of hla missionary la
bors overtaxed his strength and he
was compelled to spend some time
In Texas recuperating. When
Father McGrath had fully regained
his health he came to Seattlo and
was assigned to the Cathedral par
ish. Twelve years ago Father Mc
Grath was named by Bishop O'Dea
to be pastor of St. Patrick's parish,
Joseph Yagel, of the U. S. S.
Florida, who "arrived In New York
last week with the Atlantic fleet

Mr. Yagel saw .the surrender of the

bless you, K. of C," waa the In
sqription scribbled on a Knights ot
Columbus truck as it pulled out of
tho little town reported all over
the world as the spot In the
Argonne whore the proud and
haughty, but beaten, Hun envoys
placed their signatures to the
armistice that caused tho "cease
firing" order.
Iho truck was one of several
three-ton vehicles which, with a
bunch of "flivvers" was evacuating
the advanced area headquarters of
the Knights of Columbus at Ste.
Menehould and was starting for tho
Rhino front, whero advanced area
headquarters of the Knights are
established at Coblenz, Germany.
It was a doughboy from New
York who hopped from tho side
walk and with a heavy pencil wrote
the message on the truck, a message
that went to Germany, and unless
time and the elements obliterate it
it will some day possibly be read In
the United States and live long as
the sentiment of the fighters of the
Argonne Forest for the Knights of
Columbus, who served them faith
fully and truly from below Verdun
to Grandpre in the battles that
broke the German heart.
Long before the making of his
tory in tho Argonne Forest the
Knights ot Columbus Secretaries
had been with the American troops,
but the headquarters were at Toul.
When the lino began to swing from
that sector, farsighted G. D. Fallen,
of New York, Director General of
Knight sof Columbus activities in
the advanced area, picked Ste.
Menehould as the spot or head
quarters, and from early in October
until the present moment tons of
supplies ot all kinds for the soldiers
have left the ancient structure used
as headquarters.
Any" man who fought in the
Argonne knows the Knights, and
every Secretary who fought through
with a dlvjsion has been honored by
division headquarters and wears the
Insignia of the division with which
he stayed.. Some have the insignia
of tho Wildcats, othere the Key
stone, down the line, and in addi
tion some bear scars from shrapnel,
while one man, James P. Crowe, Is
at Base Hospital 115 recovering
from a wound received with th
Eighty-second Division at Flovllle.
Ho was with tho division fou
months when wounded. For the re
mainder of his days he will wear
an artificial leg. Crowe had been
along the line four months. J. L.
Lenhardt was hit by fragments of
an aerial bomb at Grandpre while
delivering supplies to the Marines.
Lenhardt was on the firing line
one day when hit.
It was during the first week In
October that Director Fallen saw
the necessity of a quick move from
Toul, and he picked Ste. Mene
hould for headquarters. The town
was dead as could be, and for two
hours that night Fallen and his as
sistant, L. V. Stanford, of Inde
pendence, Kan., walked the da'rk
slreets of the town trying to find
a. plaee to pass the night. Lights
were forbidden, and horns and noise
of any kind taboo. They slept that
night in their bed rolls in what
proved Ir. daylight to he an alley
way, ,
The town is in a splendid state
of preservation, as the JJuns were
kind to it, whatever damage dono
to the town being by bombs from
aeroplanes as the First American
Army moved uphe line. Director
Fallen was fortunate In finding a
warehouse larger-enough for his
supplies, and afeeurtyard in which
to store the trfcsks. It was the
site of the old XWlege of Ste. Menc
houlcl. For several nights the
commissary Knifhts spread their
bedding rolls oftfthe floor of the
warehouse, wheSfene of the Secre
taries with a bsnsp of curiosity in

most popular man In Italy before

In Rome ho is almost the mo3t
loved one. From every quarter. In
every class, nothing but praise is
sung of his simplicity, unaffected
ness and democratic manner, while
many a ono gained through the
speeches he delivered the certainty
that America felt a real sympathy
and friendship for Italy, which is
deeply reciprocated there.' The
ties uniting the two countries have
been stiongthened still more since
the President's visit. The only re
gret expressed is that he was not
able to stay longer, so as better to
appreciate the high esteem in which
his country Is held.
The President's arrival at tho
Vatican on Saturday was announced
by the Master of tho Chamber of
the Pope, who awaited the Presi
dent In tho throne loom, where two
gilded armchairs had been placed.
The President waB admitted Imme
diately to tho presence of the Pope,
who was gowned In white. On nls
way to tho throne room the Presi

procession made its way . through

Dr. McCarten d6clared that be

"Gen." Mellows, who gained his
title as one of tho leaders' ot tho
Easter rebellion in 1916, declared
that seventy-three Sinn Felnera
elected to the British Parliament
would not take their seats in tho
House of Commons, but will remain
in Ireland and try to shape tho
destinies of Ireland in Ireland." He
asserted that the Sinn Felners
would convene a national assembly
In Ireland, from which tho Irlsn
question would bo presented to the
Peaco Conference.
"There Is no more recognition ot
British law in Iroland and no more
recognition of British courts of In
justice," ho declared. "We are
withholding as far as possible every
cent from tho British Imperial
treasury. English law Is already .i
farce In Ireland. England may hold
the country, but she does not rulo
It. Wo in Ireland are prepared to
mako every sacrifice that can coma
now In upholding what we have
won. There can bo no turning
back. Ireland stands for this in
the face of England, if necessary in
the face of tho whole world. Tbo
Invincible Irish nation has once
more demonstrated to tho world
that it can not be crushed."

resolution now before tho Foreign
Relations Committee, which pro

that "all peoples are entitled to
self-govornmont and self-determination."
