And Jthese same leaders at- HrlbUfte that fact to two causes Got. Morrow's administration and Ui Searcy-Chilton machine in. Lou- 1vie. Those State" Republican, leader are outspoken to, saying that the .machine's 'act to forcing a ticket on .the people here through the aid of a, solid, phalanx of 27,000 negro voter makes the majority ot white Totem in .the State Tally to the Dem ocratic standard. All agree that the SeArey-CMKon machine to Loute vine, while Injurious to this city, Is the Democratic party's biggest amet in the State. One pleaslnig feature to Louisville Democrats 4s the fact that the Dem ocratic majority in the Senate will put a damper on .the performances '-of S. Thr.uiston Ballard, the Repub lican Lieutenant Governor, who per fArmfld In -the last session like the fcraikeat- Partisan '-imgiinablo."-Batr! lard -was touted and advertised as "the (big business man," "the non partisan citizen," etc., and. wo wore told by the Republican organs that he would act so that an observer wouldn't bo able -to distinguish his political affiliation. Just as eoon as Burton's treachery to the Demo crats became an accomplished fact Ballard dropped the non-partisan mask, assumed the whip hand and Toted with the Republican, machine en any and every measure that would embarrass or hurt the Demo cratic party. It was JJouti. Gov. TJallard's vote, as presiding officer of the Senate, that abolished the registration certificate, which . gave free reign to negro repeaters in city elections. The 27,000 negro vote in Louisville was made possible by Ballard's vote, more negroes being TegLatored hero than the United States census or tho City Directory show. Ballard's deciding vote made It 'Imposlsible to keep a check on the thousands oif negro crooks and thugs who voted in different eectlonls of the city. Following the big Democratic gathering recently a group of close political observers were1 discussing the case of Lieut. Gov. Ballard, and r It was the consensus of opinion that when ' you see a man of, his type pointed out as a high-class non partisan Republican, to look out for h'lm when the test comes. Often we hear (the remark made that "soHand so Is a Republican in national pol itic, but in State and city affairs le Votes for the man, regardless of politics." That Is bunk, pure hnd I,mple. ' As dn Ballard's case, they travel, along until given the oppor tunity and they will perform for the Republican machine or party just like any Tenth ward politician. They are non-partisan until the oppor tunlty -arrives. Take the case of tho t-. semtlemen who composed the local the recent election.

Therjo ve been a reducuon in- If Mayor Quta is the goody- man his supporters picture is he will -out the useless expendi tures' ami waste all around him and' thu.,mke It uncecessary to further gouge, -the taxpayers-. To b'egto with, le can cut fifty men off the present Incompetent Keystone police department, wfalch would mean' a saving of $75,000' a year. The pres ent police department Is a burden and drag te the taxpayers. The, force is composed principally of a lot of hill 'billies who- haven't . the slightest qualification for a polIceJ officer, and the reign 'of burglaries and crime in Louisville prove that. These "yap" cops do not even make posts day or night, as citizens know who remember way back wlien, -,we had real police. In other days, the average resident knew that the po lice on his beat made posts at cer tain hours and in an emergency knew where to .locate one. The Key stoners do not make posts, but to lieu ride wildly all over towni in "flivvers." When not making posts the "flivvers" are used to carry the officers' itamllies about or to do tihclr family marketing. No wonder the tax rate m'S Iks high. Gnsollno and "flivver" riding comes, high. Speaking of the police making nests, does anyone heljeve the Besten-Langen rohbery would have happened if the Keysitoners made posts? Here was a $5,000 robbery In a big Fourth avenue show wln dpw surrounded .by many glittering electric lights, the stripping of that window taking .much time and pains, yet not a policeman came that way. For the past year crooks have had easy picking on Fourth street, and for a while last spring a safe was blown every Sunday on that thor oughfare. And the Keystoners haven't even a clue. After each ai- taT?llke-th'elBesten rdbbery-tbe -ad'j ministration tries camouflage. It used to he Col. Patty would ladle out a lot of "bull" about the splen did Keystone police band Now Prof.. Ragsdale tells about the study of psychology and physiology In the police school. This weeK we were told, in press agent style how the night watchmen were going to be made into regular Keystoners with Instructions from the present police department officials. That's rich, Isn't it? The plan Is to have the night watchmen do the work of the police department and prevent rob beries like the Besten-Langen affair. Another (good excuse for Quto to drop about fifty of tho present police department and save gouging the taxpayers. Another saving would be to dron tho police band, tho police school, a dozen or two of the police "fltwere." Tho last item would mean much, as the "flivvers'? and police patrols are constantly being wrecked by the Keystone drivers. Aside from Quln's economic promises the voters were told ot his Sunday-school and church propensities. If this is true the Mayor needs to introduce some re form methods among his police and firemen. Hardly a day passes but thero is a Scandal In the di vorce courts involving a policeman or fireman, three higher police offi cials being connected with Immoral divorce cases the last few months. This past week a police s.ejrgeant, a married man, was mixed In a divorce scandal, and this same -ser geant, who hasn't been to long froni the "sticks," distinguished himself in another way some time ago. As agent for the Menace, a niudgutter A. P. A. publication, this new comer In1 the city attempted to cre ate religious prejudice between men and women,, citizens and neigh bors who had lived here all their life. Keep tills item in mind and see if Qnln will take stronger action than Col.

Negro gambling games to the negro Tenderloin section were warned by the police officially this week -to: stop tor the present.

It was crowded with men and women seking by their Influence to affect the result of the Dall's action. But nobody will venture to, predicfl the result. It is possible that, in stead of a diretc vote on ratification or rejection, of- the agrement, tho Dall will refer the question to "the people ot Southern Ireland through a pleblcite. The Ulster Cabinet's reply to tho Prime Minister's letter of December 5 definitely rejects the invitation to enter the Irish Free State, but it i3 not thought the Ulster following can coerce the Goverpment. In a scene likely to prove a land mark to English history, the Irish treaty Was presented to the Im perial Parliament for ratification, while the Dall Elreann at Dublin in dulged to debate turning on Eamonn do Valera's charge that tho Irish plenipotentiaries exceeded their powers .in signing the treaty without . j - -. lliLLrtlil , - sHBrVBKV j TLf , further reference -to DnblinNeiAhw-' the Commons nor tho Dail Elreann, however, had yet come to grips on the actual decision respecting rati fication, which has ibeen postponed until Thursday.

(Lord Carson especially showed not the slightest dlm'toutfom in Ws old-tlmo denunciation: ot any accommodation with nationalist Ireland. He dared the Government to do anything to stir Ulster against the empire. In supporting the treaty Lloyd George appealed to every member of the Comomns not to say a word to make the .task of the Irish advo cated for ratification, more difficult. Cheering broke out again when, he made this statement. The Premier then continued by saying that these Irish leaders were flghtiing to make peace between two great races de signed by providence to work to gether in partnership and friendship.
