To the Democrats of Kentucky:
IRELAND'S answer.
Opening of tho Sinn Fein Parlia
ment in Dublin last week and tlio
declaration of Independence of .Ire
land may prove to be the right step
In getting the peace conference to
consider Ireland's case. We are,
however, like tho True Voice, none
too sanguine about that. Thero Is
little news from Paris to Indicate
what the peace delegates are consid
ering. The fact that there are
given out only official bulletins re
garding matters which tho confer
ence has agreed upon closes tho
door to all publicity. Undoubtedly
It Is the" hope of the Sinn Fein
leaders to bring the conference to
consider their plea for Independ
ence by setting up a form of gov
ernment. That plan may succeed
and it may not.
The fact that the whole proceed
ing in Dublin was permitted to pass
off as If it meant no more than a
club meeting indicates that Eng
land feols sure of .er ground in
her plan to prevent consideration
of the Irish question. Also the fact
that tho people of Dublin tobk the
meeting of the Sinn Fein Parlia
ment so quietly Indicates that the
people of Ireland have little hopo
that Independence In fact will be
achieved by the declaration. We
can only wait and see what will
como of it all. At any rate thers
will be no more participation in the
Drltlsh Parliament and no asking
further favors from English states
men. Ireland is to stand or fall by
her own efforts.
There is one danger In the new
plan of campaign adopted. The hot
heads may gain control of the
movement and precipitate an armed
revolution. That would be disas
trous. As long as the plan of ab
stention from Parliament and pass
ive resistance to British rule Is
maintained, force can not be in
voked against it and officialdom Is
fanatics, was backed by the Social
ists. The Bolshevikl. the I. W. W.
p.nd our anarchistic bomb throwers
spring from tho Socialist ranks. Tne
bitter fight against tho Catholic
tellglon is promoted by these be
cause the Catholic church Is tha
strongest bulwark in tho world
against Socialism, Bolshevlklsm and
The editor of the Baptist World
Is Indignant because President Wil
son called on the Pope and wants
reform In the Government attitude
to the Catholic church. The worthy
editor might begin his reform tac
tics on the Rev. Boyce Taylor, at
Murray, Ky., tho Baptist minister
and moderator, who has defied the
courts and the State Board of
Health, and In an incendiary speech
in the court room Wednesday said
he and his church were above the
law. County Judge Phillips fined
the defiant Baptist leader ?100.

No Other Investment Offers Such Quick Returns.

The oil business in proven fields Is not chance, luck, fate or gamble. It Is just common sense,
foresight and ordinary ,,business reason. No matter where you place your Investments, whether In rail

The greatest element of success of any enterprise is practical experience, conservative management
and business Judgment. Oil Is a natural product with a ready market, and today crude oil commands
tho highest price ever known. Fair profit can bo made in producing oil at 60 cents a barrel. You
can imagine for yourself what profit can be made when oil Is selling at from $2. SO to $4.00 a barrel
as It Is today. A

We believo that President Wilson
Is making good progress at the

a league of nations. That is tho
only point that ho considers vital
to the peace of tho world now. In

point ho will leave Euorpo to settle

peace treaties. In this, the True

The time to Invest ln any business enterprise,
and especially "in an operating oil company. Is
jor sale and nerore'iarge dividends ire paid. " As
Moon at- a company begins " paying dividends the
stock will sell In proportion to tho amount of
dividends paid. But if you make your Investment
before the company reaches this point you have
a .nuch greater opportunity to reali.o a profit, '
not on.y from the dividends paid but from the
iniTi asp (n tho value of your Investment.
You are now offered an opportunity to Invest
In the Thonipson-Mahoney Oil Company at the
verj llrst price at which Its stock has ever been
1 fte red. This company has every element neces
sary to make It a thorough success, able and
eNperlenced management, operating on proven
kases, now producing and shipping oil, the Invest
ment of a large sum for machinery and xjqulp
tuent, low cost of operating and drilling, an I
conservative capitalization. The stock Is now
offered at par, $10.00 per share.
A short time ago this company brought In Its
fifth producing well with an Initial production or
50 barrels per day. This well was found at the
remarkable shallow depth of 200 feet, and from
present Indications will flow without pumping.
The company has two sands from which oil Is
produced, one at tho depth of about 200 feet and
the second sand at about 400 feet. It Is confi
dently expected we will obtain even larger wells
than this as drilling operations continue.
The deeper 1 well Is drilled the more It
costs. This company has a great advantage from
tho fact that the wells are obtained at a shallow
depth, and therefore cost very little compared
to oil wells In other fields. We are particularly
fortunate In having our leases located adjoining
the railroad tracks at Oil City, where we own
the property opposite a elding for unloading
freight and loading oil. Our leases aro all under
cultivation and easily accessible. These facts
make tho operating expenses of this company very
low, which adds to the profits to bo made for tho
We aro rushing the development of our
leases as fast as possible. Two rigs are drilling
tduljionjUjHcllB, pipe .line construction Is under
wav connecting all of our leases with our storage
tanKs on tne Tauroad. It is tlio Intention to add
three drilling rigs to our equipment as soon as
possible. It is for this purpose that we are offer
ing our treasury stock for sale.
The business affaire and the practical opera
tions of this companyajo in the hands of men
of long and successful experience. Tho President
of the company, J. F. C. Hegewald, Is a business
man well known throughout Kentucky. He Is at
the head of large commercial enterprises In Louis
ville and nearby cities.
J. E. Thompson, Secretary, has had fifteen
years practical experience as an oil operator, as
well as having conducted other business enter
prises with success.
Paul J. Mahoney, Vice President and General
Manager, Is probably one of tho best known oil
men ln the United States, having operated and
drilled In nearly every field In the country. Ho
has had upward of thirty-five years' practical
experience in the oil business. His ability to
locate wells successfully Is almost uncanny, and
oil men unite In saying "what he does not know
about drilling an oil well is not worth knowing.-'
should make big profits for Its stockholders. Its
capitalization Is low, $200,000. Its cost of com
pleting its wells Is small compared to other fields.
The grade nf oil Is, as far as known, tho highest
speciric gravity In the State. One-hundred-barrel-per-day
production should enable tho company to
earn 50 per cent, on Its entho capital. One-hun-drcd-and-flfty-barrel
production will represent
about 75 per cent, profit, and two-hundred-barrel
will mean about 10Q per cent, profit. One well
may give a two-hundred-barrel production, an
such wells are known ln this locality. Tho time
to make your purchase of stock in this company
is now beforo our rapid developments Increase
tho valuo of the stock, as any dny may see either
the stock take a Jump or not to bo offered at any
price. " '
