THE CENTRAL, RECORD.
18 PAGES SECTION 1 LANCASTER. KY., THURSDAY AFTERNOON, MARCH 20. 1919. TWINTT NINTH YEAR NUMBER II. THE LOGICAL CANDIDATE. (Kditorial.) The press dispatches from Wnahington that wc are noon i to have a Special ScHsion of Congress to bo called by the t President start anew the po lltlcnl gossip In the Kighth Con t gresnloiuil District about a sue ' cesser to the late Hon. Harvey Helm. It is understood that the power is lodged in the Gov ernor to call this election and set the date. It is not definitely t, known when this will be done I but is thought likely to be call- ' ...1 !.. It f. !.. I t'U 111 IICIll 11ILMIU III Ullll'I 1 to have a representative for J the district in this Special Ses- 3 sion. This brings out the discus- I sion of candidates. A number 1 if natiiriinln tinl'.. Lit t( In. l Ul , (., . t .1 ,,.,. ill i- 1 known that they would serve t the Democratic party if the ' honor of the nomination was thrust upon them. Others are spoken of as actual candidates for the nomination. The most favorably mentioned by the voters of this section and the most generally named in con nection with the nomination is Charles A. Hardin, present judge of this Judicial District. It is now conceded should he decide to heroine a candidate for the Congressional nomina tion that there would be no other candidate from either of the counties composing his Judicial District Tor it is well known that the Democrats of Garrard, Lincoln, Itoyle and Mercer are solidly behind the Judge if he should desire to leave the Judicial beach and go to represent the Kighth Dis trict in Washington. Tin fact that Judge Hardin is so well known and held in .such oopulnr esteem all over this v Congressional District, being at this time Chairman of the - State Central and I!::ectitive Committee of his party, makes mm considered a most lornuci i ftble candidate should he enter the race. He is not at this time n candidate, nor is he in any wise seeking the olfice. Iu fact it would be a sacrifice for him to make the race; but his friends scents to think if there appear a popular demand throughout the district, that he should become a candidate and that his services are desired, and needed, he would be will ing to give up his position as Judge and serve his constitu ents, who have, so honored him in the past, in Washington in the Lower House. This con clusion is based upon the opin ion they have of him as a man wiio is devoted to the public interests and loyal to his party when ins services are demand ed. Of the many names men tioned as successor to Congress man Helm we are of t lie opin ion that no one is so well pre pared to lead the party as Judge Hardin. He has served Mercer county itiMit venrs us f'nmitv Allnr. ney, the Thirteenth District! ton years as Commonwealth Attorney, and is now serving liis second term as Circuit Judge, and is an able anil fluent spenker. Such a candidate as Judge Hardin would make is greatly needed on nccount of the many new and important national and international questions which are now before the people for immediate set tlement. These specinl Con gressional elections urn fre jjyiently made the battle ground us a test of the sentiment of the people upon the position tuken by the two parties und consid ered as un index of the whole nation. With this view the oyes of tho nation may bo fixed upon the Eighth District ofj Kentucky in the next few weeks. This is certainly no time for quarrels and dissensions in our party. Political deals and traf fic in the spoils of olfice by professional politicians should lie frowned upon by the voters and party leaders. The "favorite son" idea is a weak argument to secure votes for any aspirant in this contest. We need a candidate whose ability is known and whose fit ness has been tested and tried to lead in thi.s light. For this reason the democrats of this district favor Judge Hardin for the nomination and are urging liim to become a candidate.

VICTORY LOAN Dates Formally Announced. Secretary of the Trensury Glass bus formally announced that the Victory Liberty Loan Campaign will open April 21 and continue until Mny 10. Short term notes, matur ing In not more than live yenrs, will he issued instead of longer-term bonds. While the amount of notes to be olfered was not disclosed olficially it is understood that $5,000,000,000 is the tentative figure, with the Treas ury reserving the right to accept all over-subscriptions. The interest rate on the notes and the amounts to be exempted from taxation will not be determined until u week or two be fore the Campaign opens. "After studying financial condi tinns in nil parts of the country" said Secretary (Ilass, "I have decided the interests of the United States will best be served at this time by the is suance of short term notes rather than of long term bonds, which would have to bear the limited rate of interest of 4 1-1 per cent. "The Victory Liberty Loan will therefore, take the form of notes of the United States maturing in not over live years from the date of issue. These notes will be ns were the Lib erty Loan bonds, the direct promise to pay of the United States, will be issued both in registered ami coupon form, nnd the coupon notes will be in final form nnd will have attached the interest coupons covering the en tire life of the notes. I nm hopeful that the notes is final engraved form will be ready for delivery by the opening of the campaign, April 21 "I urn led to ndopt the plan of is suing short term notes rather than long term bonds largely because of the fact that I believe a short term issue will maintain u price at ubout par after the campaign is ended far more readily than would n longer term issue" j. r7 haselden Elected Emminent Commander.

His many friends in Danville were glad to welcome "Billy" King back home again today. Billy landed in the United States Wednesday after a fine record with the famous 5th Reg iment of Marines in France nnd lost no time in returning to Danville, which lie declares looks better to him than Paris or anything else that France has to offer. Billy enlisted in the Marines last spring and at the training camp had an opportunity to enter nn officer's training school but turned it down in order to get over seas sooner. He landed in France in July nnd after a short period of train ing was nssigned to the 5th Regiment a part of the famous 2nd Division. The 2nd Division suffered a greater percentage of casualties than any other American division in the war and it was this division with its heroic murines which blocked the road to Paris at Chateau Thierry and Bellcu Woods and later iliitinguished itself in every battle until the armistice was signed, Billy went into action for the first time on September 12th in the St. Mihiel drive, the first nll-Amcri can oifcnsive. He also went through the terrible lighting in the Cham pagne drive and was in the Argonne offensive on the Verdun front where the Americans advanced day after day for two months in the face of the most terrific resistance of the whole wur. No words can do Justice to the heroism of the American troops who in this great battle broke the back bone of the German army and by the time of the armistice had accomplish ed the tusk which Marshal Foch had described would take six months of preparation nnd action. In this battle Billy was wounded by a machine gun bullet in the left urm, which is par tially paralyzed as n result.

GERMANY TO GET 370,000 Tons Of Sup plies Monthly From Allies. Help Need ed Until August. BRUSSELS, March 15. The Ger man delegates to the conference here, regarding tho taking over by the Al lies of the German mercantile fleet nnd the provisioning of Germany, have definitely accepted the condi tions imposed by the Allies. A monthly ration for Germany of .170,000 tons of food stuffs was fixed by the allied commission which is in this city conferring with a German delegation ns to the turning over of German merchant shipping nnd Germany-owned securities in payment for food shipments. The Germans observed that these rations was smaller than they had re quested, nnd were pessimistic as to the arrangement of satisfactory fi nancial terms. Germany expects thnt the Allies will provide food supplies until Aug. 15, which is the earliest possible date that flour from this year's harvest can be counted upon, said Under-Secre tary of State Von Braun before leav ing for Brussels where he took part in negotlntlons with nn Allied com mission relative to food shipments nnd the turning over to German ship ping for the use of the Entente na tions. Herr Von Braun said Germany would ask for 1,400,000 tons of grain nnd a monthly importation of 100.000 tons of pork and futs, in ad dition to condensed milk, rice, oat meal and other commodities particu larly for invalids, infants and hos pitals. He estimntcd the cost of these ship ments at five billion marks. It is a matter of great importance, he said, that food should arrive at the earliest possible moment, nnd that the total amount to be provided be known, so that the government could adjust rations until the next harvest. "Only under these conditions is it possible to combat Bolshevism nnd bring the German people back to sane conditions of life, and political and industrial sobriety," he said. Head Hurt.
