' ST. XA VI Klt'S SERVICE PliAQ. LOUISVILLE, KY., SATURDAY, JANUARY 11, 1919 COUNTItY MOUKNS. The death of Col. Theodore Roosevelt, former President of the United States and a leader among men, cast a pall of gloom over the entire country. Those who diffored with him In opinion recognized his honesty and sincerity of purpose, and while ho may have made mis takes they were those of the head and not the heart. All must admit that he served the American people well and was passionately devoted to tho welfare of the nation. The respect In which Col. Roosevelt wa3 held Is forcibly evidenced in the feeling expressions of regret of Pope Benedict, the foreign rulers, Presi dent Wilson, the clergy and Ameri cans In every station of life. The feeling of many was voiced by Father John J. Curran, of Wllke barro, his intimate priest friend, who said just before the funeral obsequies: "I came to pay a last tribute to one of the best men who ever lived." "PACTS." The Republican League has is Bued a pamphlet that makes a startling showing. In a comparison of tho last year of the Democratic administration with the first year of the present Keystone regime figures are given that reveal the fact that there has been an alarm ing Increase of crime under the latter, without any explanation therefor. The figures arc there and expose tho camouflage work now being put over. ENGIiAND EXPOSED. The result of the elections in Ireland, which show a united front, dispel the argument of the English politicians that the people of Erin can not get together on the ques tion of home rule. The Englisn press and the Tory press In this country: are now paving the way to slaughter " and Imprison innocent Irishmen by telling of bogus "Sinn Fein revolutions. agrees with tho pbllcy announced by otfr President beforo going abroad only tho discussions at the confer ence can dovelop. But it now seems certain that President Wilson has his work cut out for him. The Allies will not easily give up the plans that lhavo been formed fight ing four years of war to victory. America's weight won the war, but Franco and Great Britain are not disposed to forget that they did most of the fighting. MAKING THE KECOItD. Another successful year has passed for Editor Shinnick and the Shelby Record, which has been under tho present management for seventeen years. The Shelby Record Is recognized as one of tho most aggressive, outspoken and newsy weeklies in Kentucky. At all times fair and honest in its views, and recognizing the fact that there will always be a difference of opinion, Editor Shinnick never falls out with those who are at variance with him if satisfied they are con scientious in their belief. Here's wishing him and his another seven teen years of health and prosperity. HAVE A DUTY. Along the stately thoroughfare ( Tho passing crowd makes way, In reverence to the service flag St. Xavler's boasts today From out the school's wide portals Passed Youth's exultant crew To fight with the Immortals; One thousand ninety-two. The heart leaps up to view that sight At dawn or quiet even, The blue star victor In the fight, Tho gold star Bhrined In heaven The schoolroom of St. Xavier Sent forth no craven bands; Each fought to be a Saviour Of tho oppressed lands. The throngs that pass on Broadway Have heard tho boy's great story, Tho flower of youth that day by day Fought for our country's glory They lived In memories splendid. These lads St. Xavler's knew; By love and prayer attended; One thousand ninety-two. Elvira Miller Slaughter. f 'society. g Mrs. Julia Dalton has returned from a visit to relatives at Bloom-field. Mr. and Mrs. Frank Blanford have returned from a visit to rela tives at Springfield. Hon. Edward J. (McDermott ar rived home the first of the week from a trip to Georgia. Miss Stella Buckley spent- last week at Frankfort with her aunt, Mrs. Thomas J. Brlslan. IIRING BOYS HO.ME. The American peoplo can not understand why American troops are being used to fight in the brawl between the Russian Bolshevlkl and the other conglomeration of Social ists and anarchists now in control of that unhappy country. Some may not agree with the Hearst press, but the move of those papers In favor of bringing tho boys home Bpeedily and giving them all six months' pay Is mighty popular and tho best boosters of Hearst right now are the soldier boys coming home. "PRESIDENT'S DD?FICmTIES. President Wilson is receiving iroyal receptions In Europe wher ever he appears. France and Eng land showered honors upon him and hailed lilm as their deliverer. All this Is very gratifying. But it would be even more gratifying to know that his peace programme has been welcomed by tne Allies as a practical basis for the negotiations which are soon to open at Versailles. Insofar as the President has spoken publicly he has em ployed only general terms that have been applauded. But the test Is yet to come. In defending his pol icy In the French Chamber of Deputies last week Premier Clemen ceau spoke of President Wilson having "arrived from America with elevated thoughts." But he added at once: "France was in an especially difficult situation. It was the country nearest Germany. Americi was far away and took her time to come into tho war. England came at once at the call of Asqulth. Wo suffered and fought; our men wero mowed down and our towns and vlllagos wore destroyed. There 13 an old system of alliances called the 'balance of power.' It seems to be condemned nowadays, but If such a balance had preceded the war, If England, the United States, France and Italy had agreed, saying that whoever atacked one of them at ta'eked the whole world, the war would not have occurred. This sys tem of alliances, which I do not renounce, will be my guiding thought at the -peace conference If your confidence sends me there." -If this means, anything It meatus that France and Great Britain have, already agreed on their ?eace pro gramme and that this programme Martha (Moore Avery, of tho Boston School of Economy, points out that because it is quite impos sible to build materially or intelli gently without following a design, it surely Is necessary for iCatholics to hold a clear view of what should be done In the reconstruction period, after the war has estab lished world-freedom. Since all right standards aro embraced in the dogmas and doctrines of the church, it is encumbent upon us to sift down to bed-rock all proposals, In order to know what we may and what wo may not sanction. Slncj to Catholics have been Intrusted the unalterable standards of personal and national morality, and since we are now numerically equal to leadership, we should play a great part in furthering designs that shall raise and maintain tho standard of family living to a point becoming to the best and richest country in the family of nations. Many cases of hydrophobia have broken out among the Guardians of Liberty, Junior Order and the other A. P. A.'s since President Wilson called on the Pope. ROOSEVELT'S VISIT TO ROME. The death of ex-President Roosey velt recalls his visit to Rome In 1910, when he declined to call on the Pope because of the terms sub mitted by the Vatican. That year a small group of fanatics In charge of the Methodist College at Rome were conductnlg a most bitter at tack on the Pope and using money and .food to bribe Italians of the poorer class to desert the Catholic church. Thousands or dollars col lected -for missionary purposes were spent In this vile campaign, while It was pointed out that the samo money could be put to better use in heathen lands. When Roosevelt ar rived in Rome the Pope, through Cardinal Merry del Val, then Papal Rpm-rtnrv of State, laid ilown tne condition that Mr. Roosevelt should not visit the Methodist College i Rome If he desired to be receivd by the Pope. Roosevelt refused to be bound by any condition ande fused to accept the restrictions. The promoters of the anti-Catholic crusade then utilized Roosevelt's refusal as capital In their cam paign, and then to appease the storm of indignation that went up from Catholics tho world over Teddy cancelled his visit to tho Methodist College and left Rome In a hurry. Last Saturday President Wilson met the situation In a man ner that pleased all. He accepted the Invitation of the Protestant Episcopal church in Rome to meet all the Protestant bodies thero, re jecting the Invitation to visit tho Methodist College, and then he and Mrs. Wilson called on the Pope.

ANNOUNCEMENT OF JOHN D. CARROLL OF NEW CASTLE CANDIDATE FOR GOVERNOR Subject To the Action of the Democratic Party The announcement of John D, Carroll, which has boon printed ln pamphlet form and will be widely distributed throughout the State, Is too long to be printed an a news paper advertisement. It Is a useful papor and contains a full statement of his views on llvo public questions of interest to tho peoplo of tho State, supported by facts, figures and rea sons. The following is merely a sum mary of tho subjects touched on In tho pamphlet. In his opening statement he says in answer to the suggestion that he has covered too many subjects and expressed too many opinions for a popular candidate, "that possibly that is so, but having the notion that a candidate should bo willing Hf a "2 " '' mm JOHN D, CAnfIX.

Education. Ho says "for many reasons I havo always been and am now devotedly attached to tho common school sys tem. It Is a vital part of tho life of tho State and I am heartily in favor of making provision ample to secure to every child ln tho State an op portunity to obtain at least a good common school education. It is, I think, little short of a crimo to pend a boy or girl out into the world without an education of somo kind. The boy who so soe3 finds the doors of almost every profitable employ ment that furnished opportunity for advancement and promotion closed to him, and is as bad ly, if not worse, crippled than ho would be if sent out to make his own living with one arm or oue leg." That illiteracy in the Stato is dis tressing as well as alarming, and is due, us he believes, entirely to wio falluro of children of school ycar3 to attend .school. "Tho illiterate boy will almost suroly be an illiterate man, as thero is llttlo hope of be ginning the education of a boy after he has grown to be a man. On the other hand, the boy with somo edu cation, little though it may be, will havo it when ho gets to bo a man, and in addition, the spurring in centive to get a better one." It therefore seems to mo "that tho only eftectivo place to stop future illiter acy is in the child. That is tho place where the vice must bo cured." In view of this condition, ho says, "every possible and practicable ef fort ought to bo directed to the en forcement of tho compulsory school laws of tho State, so that every child within school years may be required to attend some school." Ilo.id.4. Ho save there is no sentiment con nected with road building. It Is pure ly a matter of hard-headed, common-sense application, und presents a question that every county should In a largo measure settle for Itself. That tho subject of good roads is one or the most expenslvo and diffi cult problems tho peoplo of tho State have to deal with, and It can only be satisfactorily dealt with by tho application of the mosz approved practical business methods. That there should be thorough co-ordir.a-tlon between State and county effort In road work if good results are to bo obtained from the expenditure of Stato fundx. Agriculture. "The chief wealth of our State," he says, "is found In Its agricultural land; farming is tho principal oc cupation of its people. Living as I ffo in a oounty and section of tho State devoted almost exclusively to agricultural pursuits, it is but natu ral that I should be keenly inter ested in everything that affects the welfare and prosperity of tho farmer. That farmers to get tho fullest re turns from tholr labor and land must keep up with tho progress that marks the development of other great lines of industry." That ho fa vors putting tho State agricultural departments "on such a financial basis as will erable them to render to the farmers of tho Stato the most efficient and practical service ln every way that will b3 helpful.' Stnto Doht. He s.ii'St the sUo- of the-State debt is not alarmlniT. "hut the manner of Its creation and tho freedom with which It may bo enlarged are ob jectionable In the extreme, and this condition was altogether brought about by the failure ot the Legisla tures of the Stato to obscrvo the constitutional requirement that The rjcnural Assembly shall provide by law an annual tax which, with other resources, shall be sufficient to de frav the estimated expenses of the Commonwealth for each ftcal year Thnt liiorn nra only two remedies one is increased revenue, and the other is decreased expenses, inui m the present time the annual revenue of the State is equal to its expenses, and he believes it would be better that the Stato debt should be main tained ut its present standard for a few years and until more favorable conditions make advisable a tax that will gradually extinguish it, if such a tax is necessary. ,!, , , He says that tho State debt should not bo permitted to grow any larger, and if elected he will "veto all ap propriations in excess of revenue, and devote his best efforts to so ar range the fiscal affairs of tho State that tho present indebtedness may bo retired without increass ln taxes. He 'Jho New Tax Law. says "There is consiaeraDie dissatisfaction in various parts of the Stato with the new system of tax laws" upon the ground that "the now law does not operate equally and imposes heavier burdenH on some classes of property than others." which he was a member, bolioved that taxes should bo "uniform upon all property subject to taxation," and so provided. But tho peoplo of the State, after trying this scheme for twenty-five years, becamo dissatis fied with it and adopted an amend ment providing for tho classification of property and the exemption of certain classes from all local taxa tion. That in obedience to this vote of the peoplo tho Legislature of the Stato enacted the present system un der which property is classified and a different rate imposed upon dif ferent classes; and all intangible property, such as money, notes, bonds and tho like, made exempt from local taxation. In commenting on this now law ho says it is probable that tho Legisla ture made mistakes In tho manner of classification as well as In tho rate Imposed, but if so, theso mistakes can and should bo cured by subse quent legislation. "But the principle of classification adopted by the peo plo two years ago should not In my judgment be changed until It has been given a fair trial and unless further experience has demonstrated Us Injustice." Labor. On this subject ha says "I have always been, am now, and will con tinue to bo tho friend of labor In every legitimate effort to belter liv ing conditions and to promote the comfort and prosperity of the wage earner. I think my nttltudo on this subject Is so well known that I need not at this time or place say more." Law and Order. IA this part of tho announcement there is no uncertain tone. It de clares that "I bellevo that the su premacy of tho law and the preservation of order aro indis pensable to tho peace and happiness of the people, tho safety of life and the protection of property. Accord ingly I hnvo always been a strong advocate of tho speedy and vigorous enforcement of tho law. I am em phatically opposed to Bolshevism in every shape and form, and all other kinds of disorder or anorchy that has or may have for Its purpose the obstruction or overthrow by violent moans of established government in county or State or nation, no matter what name it may tako or by what society or organization It may bo fostered or promoted. It is also my firm conviction that there is no room or place in this country for any flag except one, and that one Is the Stars and Stripes." Ho further says "I want ln this connection to express my abhorence of so-called 'mob law, .is well as my gratification that thero will be sub mitted to the votera at the Novem ber election an amendment to tho Constitution giving tho Legislature tho power to provldo for the removal t f 'any Sheriff, Jailer, Conatablo or peace officer for neglect of duty.' "I will vote for this amendment, and if elected urge the Legislature to enact a law that will secure tho prompt removal from offico of any peace efficer who falls to protect a prisoner who has been ai rested or committed to hia custody.-' Pardons. In discussing this subject he says "Tho Constitution of tho State makes it the duty of tho Governor to 'tako care that tho laws bo faithfully executed.' He also ha3 tho power 'to remit fines and forfeitures, com muto sentences, grant reprieves and pardons,' but it Is plain to my mind that tho inconsiderate or lavish use of this power would result In tho ob struction of the execution of the law In place of promoting Its efficiency, and so I think tho power to pardon should bo sparingly exercised, nnd executive clemency only granted when it clearly appears that the ends of justice demand it." Nonpartisan Judiciary. After paying a High Compliment to tho Integrity and freedom from partisan bias of the judiciary of the State, ho declares strongly for a non partisan Judiciary, to the end that "there may not bo even a suspicion that their judgment was warped by partisan feeling." Nonpartisan Institutions. Being of the opinion that all these Institutions "should be honestly and absolutely divorced from partisan politics," ho says that "when com petent and faithful men can bo se cured to administer tholr local af fairs, there is every reason why changes should not bo made for partisan purposes and no reason why any removal should be made solely for political reasons." Fair Elections Corrupt Practice Aet. Having always been an advocate of fair election laws and honestly conducted elections, ho says "Our general election laws Insofar as tho conduct of elections ls concerned are fair enough. Tho vice in the sys tem has heretoforo consisted in thp fact that in many local elections much fraud has been practiced as a result of the unlawful use ot money by candidates; and that the greatest enemies good government ln pur Stato has had are tho bribe takers and the brlbe-glvers in pub lic olectlons." Speaking of "The Corrupt Practice Act," ho says it ls "a long and fine step toward preventing bribery in elections because It limits tho sum that tho candldato may epord, and the violation of tho act works a for folturo of tho offico to which tho offender may have been nominated or elected." And "I am glad to say tho amount that a candldato for Governor may directly or indirectly use in any manner, shape or form, or for any purposo relating to or tending to promote his candidacy ls limited to 10,000. or, about ?S4 to the coun ty. And it will at onco bo seen that the largo sum of $10,000 does not afford any opportunity for extrava gance. Indeed, ono lotter to each Democratic voter would exhaust the allowance. "The provisions of this act I In tend to strictly obscrvo according to Its letter ns well as spirit, although so doing will necessarily deprive mo of tho benefit of much legitimate let ter writing and advertising that would bo helpful." Tho Independent Vote. In reference to this class of our citizens ho says "Thero is in the State a largo and ever-Increasing in dependent vote composed mostly of men who aro nominally and natural ly Democrats and would like to sup port tho candidates and policies of that party, but they look behind the emblem to sto who ls thero and are Influenced moro by men than by party devices. Tho Democratic party if it desires to win must nominate candidates who have the confidence of and can secure this independent vote Therefore I tako tho liberty of suggesting that Democrats should take a careful survey of the field and nominate that man whether It be myself cr another who cah poll in country nnd city tho largest vote in tho November election." Business Administration. "In its business aspect," he says, "the Stato may be HUe.ied to a big business corporation tho voters be ing tho stockholders, tho Legislature tho Board of Directors and the Gov ernor tho president. And so the business of the State should be con ducted ns nearly as may be in the samo economical and efficient man ner as the affairs of a largo and well-managed business concern." If elected, he says, "I would devote all my tlmo and attention to looking after the business interests ot tho State. My ambition would be to build up a good business, not a good political, machine. Having this view, I would not under any circum stances or conditions that could possibly arise be a candidate for or accept the office of United States Senator or any other, believing that by pursuing this course I would bet ter bo ablo to devote my wholo tlmo and attention to tho business af fairs of the State with a freedom un embarrassed by further ambition." Where Candldato Lics. The apparently widespread no tion that the section of tho State a candidate comes from has something to do with his vote-gotttng qualities is. ho says, a mistake, "as is well illustrated by thuclGctlon returns for, 1915, which show thafGov. Stanley from weetern Kentucky, received in tho State 4,130 moro votes than, Lieut. Gov. Black from Eastern Kentucky, and that In two of tho thirty-one counties known as moun tain counUes, tho voto was a tie be tween them, In tho other twtnty-nlno Stanley got a majority over Black ln twenty-two of them. Whllo ln West ern Kentucky In the same number of counties Stanle received a majority over Black in twenty-four counties. Soldiers' Monument. After paying a splendid tribute to Kentucky's part in the lato war and tho valor of her soldiers, ho says: "Now that peaco has come, numbers of our boys havo returned to their homes, others aro on their way, but many of those who wont forth will not come back. They gave their lives for tho honor and safety of their State and nation, and aro now sleep ing in foreign lands. "To perpetuate their nerolc deeds I want to seo the Stato of Kentucky, at on early day, erect in some fult ablo and conspicuous placo in the State, a noble monument that will be enduring evidence of tho grateful remembrance in which wo who are living hold, the names and memory of those who died.'' Conclusion. Concluding tho announcement is Vi utntr.tTiB.it 'l resnectfullv ask in tho primary election the support of those Democrats who approve what 1 have said and who believe that If nominated and elected I will nonest ly endeavor to help put It into ef- ' fecttve form." eping-Out Sale MEN'S-WOMEN'S-CHILDREN'S SHOES Of the irreproachable "Boston" quality are nbw priced to save you from 52c to $3.02 on fall and winter, 1918, styles.
