Quietly, solemnly, and beautifully was the sacred ceremony performed by Rev. J. F. Knue. Two nnre lives were united for "better or worse."

Thnt is the opinion of Tho World. Thnt is the counsel of the New Jersey primaries. That is the logic of the situation, It is time for facts and not for theories. Judson Harmon might prove a strong candidate in New York nnd Ohio, but his nomination has been rendered impossible. Champ Clark would be n hopelessly beaten candidate in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut. He could do no better than Mr. Bryan, who has lost these States three times and would lose them ngain if nominated. Oscar W. Underwood is of Presidential size, but he has been untested ns n candi date in the North and is an unknown quantity to most of the voters. Woodrow Wilson alone has a record of contin uing victory in the section in which victory is essential to Democratic success. What other Democratic candidate could poll so many votes in the great debatable States of the East New York, New Jersey and Connecticut? What other Democratic candidate, who could carry these States, would be so strong iu the great the Middle West Ohio and Indiana? What other Democratic candidate could make so power ful an appeal to hundreds of thousands of thoughtful inde pendent voters without whose support ident can be elected? What other Democratic candidate could .so well stem the rising tide of Rooscveltisni, which now threntcusjlo engulf representative government and republican institutions? What other Democratic candidate would so fully meas ure up to the ideals of the sane radicals and the sane con servatives upon whose joint action the result of the election will hinge? The World hitherto has withheld its active support;froin all candidates. It advocated an open convention at Haiti more, and advised its Democratic friends to await the net ion of the Republicans at Chicago. The open convention is assured. The measure of all the candidates has been taken. The situation is clarified and further delay is unnecessary. Like a twentieth-century Genghis Khnn, Theodore Roosevelt, with his horde of prairie Populists and Wall street Socialists, is sweeping down upon the Republican National Convention. Mr. Taft .seems as powerless to check him as the degenerate Romans wcra to check; the descent of the Goths aud the Vandals. The historic party of Lincoln and Seward and Chase and Sumner and Conkling and Chandler and Maine and Garfield and Harrison and Sher man and McKinley is apparently in the death throes. This is the twilight of the gods, and the Democratic party must rise not only to its opportunity but to its responsibility. How can it do its duty better than to match sanity against lunacy; statesmanship against demagogy; the his torian against the Rough Rider; the educator ofj public opinion against the debaucher of public opinion; the first term against the third term; the tariff-reformer ngainst the stand-patter; the man who would prosecute trust magnates against the man who protects trust magnates; the man with clean hands against the man who draws his campaign fund from Wall street; the supporter of constitutional gov ernment against the champion of personal government; law against lawlessness; Americanism against Mexicanism; the Republic against the dictatorship? Who better represents these issues than Woodrow Wil son? Who is better qualified than Woodrow Wilson to ap peal to the intelligence and common sense of the American people against the most cunning and adroit demagogue that modern civilization has produced since Napoleon III. ? Who would stand a better chance of election in this great national crisis? Let us look at the facts: It will require 260 electoral votes to elect a President. The so-called Southern States, including Maryland and Missouri, have 175 votes. Assuming that Arizona will; go Democratic too, practically any Democratic candidate for President can count on I78 electontlvotes. Hut 83 more are necessary to victory. Where can These 83 be found? It is folly to look for them west of the Mississippi River. The West is in the midst of another revival of Populism. In Theodore Roosevelt it has found n new substitute for its gospel of free silver. He is the political reincarnation of James B. Weaver, Mary IS. Lease, Jerry Simpson and Pef fer. He is the heaven-born ratio of 16 to 1 iu a still more fascinating form. It is idle to think that any Democrat could appeal to the West against Roosevelt. It is idle to think that anybody who is not a far more masterful and dangerous demagogue than Roosevelt could command""tlTe support of the Populists who now call themselves Republi can Progressives. The Democratic party, if it is to win the election' and safeguard American institutions, must unite the East and the South as Tilden did in I876. WOMAN'S CLUB Will Be Organized In Cloverport Soon. Want Every Woman In Cloverport And Its Vicinity To Join Plans are 011 foot to organize a Woman's Club for Cloverport and after the meeting at'the Methodist church is closed, definite steps will be taken. More information will be given iu the News next week about it. If you are interested, just send your name to K. S., in care of The llreckenrldge News. Entertainments will be given to meet the club's expenses and no dues will be assessed on the members. Funeral Of Mrs. Bush. Mr. and Mrs. L. B, Perkins, Messrs WOODROW WILSON From the J'cir )ork World carry New York with its 45 ulectoml votes. He must carry New Jersey with its 14 electoral votes, He must carry Connecticut with its 7 electoral votes To lose these states is to give Roosevelt a walkover To win these States is to win not only 60 of the 88 electorial votes that are needed, but in nil probability it is to win Ohio with 24 votes; it is to win Indiana with 15 votes, which is the historical political ally of New York and New Jersey; it is to give the Democratic party an opportunity of victory iu Massachu setts with its 18 votes, and to bring Deleware with its 3 votes back into the Democratic column. In other words, it is to elect a Democratic President of the United States. It is iu the East that Democratic victory must be won. It is in the East that Roosevcltism must be overthrown. It is the East that must save the country from n third term and all it implies. For that reason The World regards Wood row Wilson ns the strongest candidate the Democratic party can nominate. The New Jersey primaries were a vital test of his political strength not only in New Jersey but in New York. They proved that local opposition to him is largely a myth. Al though the campaign against him was well organized and abundantly financed, it failed miserably. He swept the State, nnd the only four delegates he lost were lost through the personal efforts of James Smith, Jr , a political boss debatable States of no Democratic Pres whom Gov. Wilson kept out of the United States Senate. In a section of the country where Wall street and the politi cal bosses are most powerful, Gov. Wilson demonstrated that he has the confidence of the rank and file of the party, without which any man's candidacy is futile. He demon strated as well that his political strength is the kind Jof strength that is essential to Democratic success iu the vital ly necessary States of New York, New Jersey and Connec ticut. So much for that. During Gov. Wilson's public career The World has been compelled to take issue with him on many questions. We regarded with grave misgivings his sudden conversion to the initiative and referendum, reversing the principles of a lifetime. We regretted his apparent disposition to imitate Mr. Bryan's sweeping charges against the so-called Money Trust without supporting these charges with facts and speci fications. We regretted his long campaign tours, his too eager chase after the nomination, and certain symptoms of instability which threatened to weaken his public useful ness. We have not hesitated to warn him when we thought he was going astray, and shall not hesitate to do so again in the future. Hut Gov Wilson's elements of weakness are vastly over balanced by his elements of strength. He has proved his political courage and his fearlessness. lie has proved him self sound on tariff reform. He has proved himself sound on the Sherman law. He has proved himself sound on cor poration control. He has proved himself sound on trust prosecutions and personal guilt. He has proved himself sound against government by Wall street plutocracy. He has proved himself sound on the independence of the judi ciary. He has proved himself sound on the fundamental principals of constitutional government. He has proved that he is instinctively and temperamentally a Democrat. He has proved himself a free man who cannot be bulldosed by bosses or influenced against his conviction even by his personal friends. This is the sort of man who ought to be President. Gov. Wilson has had more public experience than Grover Cleveland had when he was elected President. He is better known to the rank and file of the party than Samuel J . Tilden was when he was nominated for President. The World believes that he would be a progressive constitution al President whom the American people could trust and for whom they would never have cause to apologize. We appeal to all Democrats to consider this matter sober ly and thoughtfully and without prejudice. We appeal to the delegates to the Democratic National Convention to be swayed by no considerations except those of principle and the public welfare. We appeal to Mr. Bryan to throw his great political influence upon the side of Gov. Wilson aud aid the Democratic party to meet adequately this great crisis in the Nation's history He has the most brilliant opportu ity for disinterested, patriotic leadership that has come to any American of his generation, and he has before him in Theodore Roosevelt a striking example of the meaning of ruthless aild unyielding ambition. It is not iu behalf of Woodrow Wilson that The World urges his nomination. It is not merely iu behalf of the Democratic party as a party. It is in behalf of the Ameri can people. It is iu behalf of American institutions. It is in behalf of the Republic. It is in behalf of the Nation that is now confronted with the gravest menace that it has faced sincethe obliteration of human slavery and the overthrow of secession. The candidate J must James Cordrey, Courtney Babbage, Jr., and Lee Nelson, of this place, attended the funeral of Mrs. Wyatt Bush In Louisville Thursday morning.

Selling Old Clothes There is a young woman In town who always has good luck in selling clothes that she does not want to use any long er for herself. For instance, if anyone comes to her to buy second-handed garments, she always puts them la their best shape. Old shoes she always cleans well and polishes them, and they bring the price they are real ly worth. The same Idea can be ap plied to dresses by cleaning and press ing them.
