On tho 17th day of January of this year, Mr. Stanley announced his can- tlio United States nro planning to ' dldacy for the Governorship of Kon guard against the financial cataclysm ' tucky and which announcement was Action Delayed Causes Loss Ten To Fifteen Per Cent of Amount. "Washington, Sept. 20. Vast Gov ernmental operations Involving tho expenditure of more than one hun dred million dollars were practically paralyzed for over a month last year by failure of the Democratic Con gress to properly enact necesary legislation. The "tie-up" was paramount to a strike with hundreds of thousands of men idle, according to government officials charged with expenditure of the funds controlled by the legisla tion. The amount was contained in what Is properly termed the "sun dry civil" bill. In order to carry out the plans on which it was based, tho bill had to be passed by June 30. It threatened by war expenditures In Kuropo amounting to a hundred million dollars a day. Being now practically the only solvent nation on earth, the United States seems about to undertake tho financing of Europe to an extent never before known in our country. The billions of Idle money In American banks, Idle chief ly because Industrial expansion nnd practically all other form of produc tive enterprises have been checked through the effects of a Free-Trade Tariff, are to bo drawn out to help tho countries that are engaged in butchering each other. Of course, American bankers arc going to get substantial profits out of the deal. Otherwise there would be no deal. But what aro American labor and Industry going to get out of it in the long run? Are the bankers who sup ply a billion dollars of American money for the relief of European telegraphed by Arthur I). Krock to the Courier-Journal and published in that paper on tho ISth, and among other things said by Mr. Stanley was the following which seems enough, and created nt the time, by Its very courage and audacity, a furoro in the ranks of tho ofllco holding oli garchy at Frankfort and caused many to doubt Mr. Stanley's political wis dom, tho all accorded to him a cour age rarely found in a politician. "Mr. Stanley's Position Before the August Primary." "Ono of the vltnl Issues which the Democracy of the State will ho called upon to indorse or 'repudiate is the principle of endless rotation in olllce. I am convinced that tho question of whether or not a sluglo coterie of officeholders shall perpetuate them selves in power by rotating in differ ent ofllces, will be settled In August us overwhelmingly as the people countries giving any thought to this ' adopted that provision In the present domestic feature of the case? Are they planning also to como to the help of the American workmen and American mils and factories against the time of need that will surely come when all Europe will be dump ing Its immense surplus of Industrial State Constitution which renders every State official Ineligible as his own successor. That clause In the organic law was thus heartily Indors ed by the people of Kentucky because they believed It would end ring rule In tho Stato House, nut there is better did not pass until more than a month products upon the only available mar- reason for keeping a state olllclnl In later. For the intervening time none of the futuro work contemplated in the legislation could be started. It would take hundreds of pages to describe the disastrous results of this heedles delay. Only a mere hint can be given of the activities the "sundry civil" bill provided for. It Is one of the largest supply bills Congress handles, and Including nearly four millions dollars for Im provements and maintenances of sol diers' homes; two and a half-mllltons for the protection of public health; seven millions more for keeping up life saving stations and light houses; over one million for fortifications on the Panama Canal; over three and a half millions to enable the Inter state Comerco Commission to con tinue the physical valuation of rail roads and other Important activities; Ket in the world 7 Do our money princes look far enough to see what is going to happen to the labor, the industry and the general business of our country under a Free-Trade Tariff that invites Europe to make tho American market its dumping ground? Have they forgotten that In the first ten months of tha Free Trade Tariff, when all the world was at peace, three million American wage earners had lost their jobs? Do they ever think of the conditions that will prevail when, through the unequaled dumping facilities provid ed by the Underwood Free-Trade Tariff, the return of peace shall have set the wheels of European In dustry once more In full motion, and he dumping process shall have stopped the wheels of American In dustry?

It would seem that our high fi nanciers ought to be thinking of these things while arranging the billions-dollar credit for the benefit cial in discussiilg this subject.

If tho money wasted in de layed appropriations during tho last four years could be made available now, we would not need to be devis ing ways and means to replentish the treasury. The waste would pro bably more than cover the estimated deficit." Tho crlmo of delaying action on Appropriation bills was emphasized by the Democrats in the recent spring session of Congress. Within thirty six hours of tho time for adjournment only two relatively unimportant ap propriation bills had been enacted. Yet in the brlof hours before noon of March 4, tho enormous sum of about one billion dollars was author ized to be expended. This performance was an appro priate close to a record of mismanage ment that Is unpjralleled in tho his tory of our government. t When Baby lias The Croup.

The future condition of do mestic exchange had best be consid ered. Our domestic trade is thirty five times greater In volume than our foreign trade. The high finan ciers ought not to overlook this fact.

That is something which American high fi nanciers would do well to be think ing about right now. It is In general scope and consequences a far more important matter than a billion-dollar loan for the benefit of Europe. Globe-Democrat. Your CoiikIi Can bo Stopped.
