Wijl the Hartford Herald please iurnlsh specific Instances wherein the present editor of this paper ever "abused Republicans" or said "ugly things about them"? It cannot be done. We are requested by the Hart ford Herald to republish some of our editorials of three years ago, when Taft and Rosevelt were candidates for President. We will agree to do this provided The Herald will repub lish, at the same time, some of its strong editorials written then against the third term. We almost had another eruption of j the Woodson-Haldeman volcano one clay last week. The crater, which has been quiet for several weeks, since the lava emitted which spelled something about "going tho limit," gave out dense clouds of smoke but soon quieted down acain. All nor-! sons are warned to keep a safe dis tance howover, as the worst is yet to come. The offort to make lt appear that the Circuit Judge and Comonwealth's Attorney in this district have "killed a bear," In the possum hunter cases, is as "A Democrat" says enough to make a cow laugh. So far only the poor devils have been punished. The men with property and influence have not been tried, and It 13 intimat ed they will never be tried. Is there an atempt to make these pros ecutions serve political ends? Well as we "proceed along" we shall "seo what we shall see." The Hartford Herald says that tills paper some years ago, refused to pub lish a communication from one of the best Republicans in the county. Well didn't The Herald refuse to pub lish a communication from a good Iemocrat Just before the late pri mary? Didn't you turn down a let ter from Dr. E. W. Ford and is he not a good Democrat? Now, this is not ancient history and not barred by limitation either. Answer, Mr. -Herald. You are a fine set of fel low to talk about anybody refusing to publish anything. If Judgo Blrkhead is corectly re ported In the Owensboro Inquirer, so more possum hunter trials may take place in Ohio county, at least for the present. In an Interview-1 jmbliflhed in that paper and printed elsewhere In this Issue he Is made to gay that If tho ring leaders have been punished the prosecutions may now be ended. There arc many who have predicted Just such nn end. Tho article says: "If tho prosecuting at torney U convinced that the leaders are In the penitentiary, and there s some doubt as to the others In dicted voluntarily entering these midnight mobs and gangs of lavles3 men these men may go free, other wise they will he tried and must sut ler the consequences of the law." Thcro have been some queer doings In connection with theso cases and the conduct of tho Commonwealth's Attorney will be watched with great Interest In view of all the rumors afloat. According to the account furnish ed by William Henry Jones of that Democratls opening at Glnscow, we need to subtract about S.00 from at tendance and discount the euthus msm about 100 per cent. He says, and he was there, that the only en thusiasm manifested was when the burgoo was nttaclced, and that here, so much enthusiasm was displayed that the burgoo soon gave out and that the hungry crowd broke over tho ropes and ran over tho kettles and tables, while the pick pockets did tho rest. Besides, the Louisville papers had published the news that Senator Beckham, McDermott, Mc Chesney, Hnley.and Van Zant were nil there and even named the carriage in which each one followed tho "No blo" Stanley In big triumphant pro cession. Mr. Jones says, and he was there, that none of the famous Demo crats here named were there. Mr. Jones is a truthful man and his statements have not been questioned. Tho Hartford Herald, still trying to drown the charges against Blrk hcad and Rlngo, coming from Ow ensboro, and elsewhere, by muddy ing the waters wants us to interview Mr. C. P. Keown about the Republi can primary. We again suggest if Mr. Keown, or anyone else has any evidence of bribery or other crime nent position: Did Judge T. F. Blrkhead and Lavega Clements enter a saloon or saloons, in Owensboro, on Wednesday night before the Au gust primary, Just after Judge Glenn had been badly treated at a speaking and did Judge Blrkhead or Mr: Clements, his Master Commissioner for Da viess County pay for the drinks for any of these people who had attended said speaking?" Judge Blrkhead and Mr. Clements to answer, in as much as the Herald Is kind enough to help us hunt up and so , licit a correspondent, we will be equally, as kind in helping it with copy by offering the above, and we know it ennnot refuse so modest a request. Did you ever frighten an old moth er quail with her young? You know what frantic efforts she makes to lead you away after her, to pro tect her brood. For a complete counterpart, read the Hartford Her ald from week to week, sluco the grave charges were published about tho Judicial district primary. When Mr. Rlngo was charged by his oppon ent, Mr. Tanner, with having gotten his nomination through fraud and corruption, and escaped an investiga tion by taking advantage of a techni cality, The Herald said you cannot afford to notice it. When Judge Blrkhead was charged with entering a bar room in Owensboro, where the drinks were served, either at his ex pense or the expense of Mr. Clem ents, his Daviess County Master Com missioner, to men who had Just mis treated Judge Glenn at a speaking, Tho Herald answering for him, says ho ls too honorable to notice such a charge and, besides the editor of this paper once refused to support his ticket. Well that can't bo said of theHerald editor. Not since John P. Barnett so ably and conscientious ly edited that paper has such a thing happened. Under Its present man agement we doubt if any nomination coutd be made, no matter whom nor how, which could draw any drltlclsm from it, much less cause It to bolt. If we were disposed to say anything unkind we would class that kind of a partisan In the 'yellow dog" va riety. .At least he clussifilesv himself. Now lets not run away after the old bird (The Hartford Herald) but seo what klnq" of brood nhe,ts,mo,therlng. Wo didn't bring these charges,, and .they are not against tho Jlerald edi tors. A reproduction of editorials in this, paper, three yeaja ago nlght be edifying, but they would throw no it 'light on tho fjnestlons at bar nflw Tho Herald may douht our Mnccrct In advocating fair elections, lut 1 cannot point to a single Instruct where we have failed to do so. I' any candidate on tho Rcpubllcai ticket Is openly accused of sccurlnf his nomination by crooked mcthodr specific Instances, pointed out, mu ho falls to deny lt, or sets up the clnlm that he "cannot afford to notice It," this paper will remove his name from tho ticket and rcfuso to sup port him. Now what will The Hart ford Herald do on Its side? Conic ncross or be branded. In the mean llmo the question still stands foi Judgo Blrkhead, but this one is tc Tho Herald. STAXliKY OX Till: mitLK. During tho course of his speech In Louisville Monday night Mr. Stanley, the Democratic candidate for Gover nor undertook to take a fall out of Hon. E. T. Franks, who In a speed at Hopkinsville had exposed the ex travagance of Bnrksdale Hamlctt Ho revived an old exploded story op Mr. Franks, In which he ls repre sented us having misquoted Shakes peare, calling "Banquo," "Broncho." Mr. Stanley ls quoted in nil the Louis ville dally papers as having said, In connection with this attempted fun at Frank's expense "After utilizing the services of Hon. E. T. Franks, my accomplished friend, Mr. Edwin Morrow, can well be called the Go liath of the Republican party, for he has utilized as an offensive weapon the Juwbone of an ass." Wonder who told Stanley that It was Goliath who slow his enemies with the Jawbone of an ass? Mr. Franks may be shy on Shakespeare, but what shall we say of Stanley on bible history? It is a late day for him to undertake the destruction of the larucls of Samson, even though he should do it by turning his own weapons on him. A Costly Loson in Mad Politics. A country in which each inhabi tant consumes an average of eighty five pounds of sugar a year, ought not to treat the production of that article as a matter to be fooled with by a party with fantastic theories and identified with a deficit that con tinues to pile up. One of the most important tri umphs in agriculture, and In chemis try as applied to the practical needs of the world, is beet sugar. It pays German and French farmers to grow the sugar beet, and factories in those countries handle the crop at a good profit. They are both Protective nations. If they had not been they certainly would never have succeeded In grow ing the sugar they use. There is an Increasing appreciation of the health- fulness of sugar, and lt Is a source of energy second to meat. American per capita consumption of sugar has doubled within thirty years. Con gress should not allw the subject to le tampered with by mere political theorists. Democrats like Mr. Bryan are for absolute Free-Trade. They have al so been for dollars very different from the gold" dollars we are now gathering in from all continents and handing each other in all transac tions. Beet sugar is plainly a pro duct that must be intelligently en couraged here, as it has been in Ger many and France. If the $GO,000,000 a year from su gar duties Is to be looped off next May, as the Democratic party has ar ranged, the country will have a cost ly lesson In bad politics. Trenton (N.J.) State Gazette.

It has to do with wrongs committed by men who, whatever their professed party affiliation, are neither Democratc nor Republicans, but the comon enemies of all forms of government, save that Invisible government which looks to the pow er and enrichment of the few at the cost of the many. The Democratic party can offer no better proof that It is fit to be in trusted with the administration of the city and. county's courts of Jus tice and the management of Louis ville's fiscal affairs than by ridding the community of the operators and creatures of a system which would take from the people of Louisville their right of self government.

KEOWN, Sheriff Ohio Co. Mr. Stanley And The Tux LawK. Mr. Stanley, in his opening speech at Glascow, consumed a great deal of time, and displayed a tremendous amount of Stanleyesque oratory, de scribing his assault on tho Steel Trust Hon in Its very den, nnd told his amazed and wondering audience how ho felt that animal's bleeding and mangled carcass from one end of Pennsylvania avenue to another, to say nothing of what was bespat tered over tho surrounding lnndscape but it is not recorded that hr at the time told his hearers how much high er the Steel Trust stock was selling after tho killing than before. The nearned manner In which Mr. Stanley discusses largo problems of nationwide importance naturally lends one to assume that whllo run ning for- Governor of Kentucky ho would deem it proper to devote some attention to questions which deeply concern tho people of the Common wealth in particular. For example, one searches his Glascow speech In vain for a discus sion of the tax laws and any expret-1 slon of what the people might expect in the way of executive action with reference thereto In case he Is elect ed Governor. Mr. Stanley admits that the fail ure of tho attempt to secure an amendment to the Constitution which would enable the Legislature to re vise the tax laws to the fullest extent was due to the neglect of a Demo cratic State official, but he Is silent with respect to what In his Judgment would bo the wise course to pursue, In this important department of State government. Mr. Stanley did say thut "the real and personal property of Kentucky Is valued at $846,454,020," and that "lt pays a tax of $5 per thousands, with no bonded Indebtedness. The reason that the state has no bonded indebtedness ls that Instead of bonds there ls a tremendous amount of State warrants outstand ing in the hands of money lenders and which are bearing interest at a higher rate than bonds could be sold for. Mr. Stanley did not say, however, that of the great amount of personal property represented in stocks, bonds, flivnimfft. rflftli et. tint -pYnoArilnp tT 77 J CT --... c. perhaps ten per bent, of lfpayg'Uny MILLINERY!

The report of the Kentucky Spe cial Tax Commission (December 1913) cites the fact that in 1912, of the $123,000 cash on deposits in the banks In Kentucky) only 12.S47.SCS, or, a little over ten per cent, was re turned for taxation. Mr. Stanley did not state that while the humble home of the small taxpayer, the small farm of the man of moderate means, and the trusteed estates of widows and orphans nre assessed to tho limit and made to bear every possible cent of taxes, the stocks and bonds and cash of tho ex tremely rich in a very great degree cscapo taxation altogether. Mr. Stanley docs not seem to have tho time now to tell the people what he thinks of this and what ho be lieves ought to bo done to induce the millions of dollars of untaxed person al property to come from Its hiding place and help bear tho burdens of government and to reduce the weight of taxation which now rests upon the small properly owner. It Is not the Owners of stock, bonds etc., aro unwilling to pay taxes on this typo of property, but no law has over been found which wluld Induce men to list property for taxation at confiscatory rates and until Kentucky follows tho lead of other States and adpots a wiser tax system, millions of dollars Invested In personal pro perty will escapo taxation. Worse still, outside capital will not come to the State to help develop her re sources and tho commercial prestlgo to which the Commonwealth Is Justly entitled will bo retarded. Mr. Stanley says the Democrats have made 'an honest and sincere ef fort to correct evils" complained of, but he seems to run counter to his friend and party roan, the present Lieutenant Governor (Mr. McDer- mott), who said in his speech at Par is last August: "The State employed a tax expert from California, which with tho State Tax Commission, prepared a careful report. It required all the strength I could bring to bear In the Senate to get the tax retorm bin to a vote and then It was defeated." Lexington Leader. , An Army of the Unemplojed. Accordlng to Director Cooke, of the Department of Public Works, a cen-1 bub of the unemployed wh(clt was taken In the spring of the year dem-1 onstrated .that at that time 79,000 wage earners In Philadelphia were out of employment. This means that the number'ot 'men who were m ! willing to work nnd were unnblo to get lt wns as large as the regular army of the United States. Ther in ?ood reason for thinking that condi tions have Improved vastly since that time and that we will enter on tbtf coming winter with more hope and1 confidence. It pays to bo optimis tic, and tho proper spirit is to go steadily forward In tho belief tbntj things will eventually right them- ' selves. But what are we to think of tho parly and the politics which were- mainly responsible for bringing about this distressing stnte of af fairs. It was but nnturnl that tho building trades should bo dull dur ing tho winter months, but aside from this the Impartial figures of tho director show that the greatest percentage of unemployment was In the textile Industries. The workers In tho mill districts were the lrst to feci the disastrous effects of tho Democratic Tariff, and they will bo the last to recover. This In spite of tho hilly promises of the Democratic orators that these men would bo bet ter off under u low than n Protective Tariff. Tho war orders have offset tho general depression and the stoppage of Imports has mln'lhiized tho effects of tho Underwood hill, but we have had a sufficiently Impressive object lesson to last for many years to come.V Philadelphia Inquirer. - Notice Stock Law KlecUou.
