When the + people of Christian
county ielectedJohn C Duffy to the
office of County Attorney last year
though they knew something of his
loyalty to the Democratic party and
his ability as a lawyer they hardly
I realized that they had drawn a big
prize in the lottery of politics and I
that they had chosen a man who re l
garded the office as a sacred trust I
and would direct every energy in
watching the countys interests We
can truly say that Mr Duffy if
making an exceptional officer and
has been delving into and unearth
ing things that have heretofore been
overlooked or indifferently per
mitted that increased the burdens of
the people3it c
In substantiation of this assertion
we will mention the suit filed °
by Mr Duffy in the Circuit Court a
last week In this suit he seeks tolJ
recover 8000 or 10000 paid in the a
way of a 6 per cent penalty collected c
from the taxpayers since the year
1901 For many years the sheriffs
who have served the people imbibed
the idea from one and another that
6 per cent penalty on taxes collected
after a certain date was one of the
perquisities of the office and appro
priated it to their individual use
Mr Duffy claims that this has been
done without warrant of law and
that the penalty belongs to the
county He says that 8000 cr
10000 should be returned to the
county treasury and hence his suit
for five years back He also says
that the bondsmen of the different
sheriffs are liable for it to say noth
ing of the interest that should be
paid for the use of it for so many
years He is confident that the
court will render judgment in the
county s favor If the penalty be
longs to the sheriff any one can
readily see that it would be big
money for the sheriff riot to push
his collections before the time lim
ited by law as the fewer taxes col
lected the greater the amount in the
way of penalties that goes into the
sheriffs pocket This is so very a
plain that even a blind man can seetl
it If Mr Duffy properly construes tl
the law and recovers the large h
amount heretofore diverted to per
sonal use he will have the gratitude n
of every taxpayer in the county Het1
of course will have the fight of hisn
life but he is prepared for it There p
are so many men who have reveled t
in the fat of office that they are n
bound to enter the arena against 11
the champion 6f the peoples rights e
The struggle may be long and stub
born but Mr Duffy is not the man °
to surrender or compromise It
will be the fight to a finishD
Mr Duffy has also uncovered an I
other scheme that has worked to the h
detriment of the people He hasf
filed a bill of exceptions in the county i
court and seeks to recover 800 of
the peoples money that has been
paid to the county assessor for two
years for listing the county polls
This seems to have been a precedent
established during the past few j
years Mr Duffy hftg taken this a
bull by thoA horns and if going + to t
hold on tore last minute y Haaayg I J
that the paying to the assessor 400
or 460 is simply paying the officer
twice for the same thing at the as
sessor draws a salary i and lie has no
right lecelvol percentage for
listing persons that 1e should have
gotten When he madfr his assessment
i Wo are not makfyg war on any
exoffillr Mr Duffy is doing
that afidHVe are orily > telling tlrpeo
pIe about it It is not our fight but
if Mr Duffy accomplishes what he
has started out to do and which he
believes he will do he will in the
future only have to sale for what he i I
wants of te people and he will get I
it i
While f Duffyin his continuous
work for ps Democratic party has
formed thO acquaintance of nearly
ever man m the county it may be
that all do flat know anything of his
early life He came to Kentucky in
1894 He was born in Gilmer W
Va where he is at this time visiting
after an absence of 16 years He is
a graduate of two institutions of
learning in his native State as well
as one at Nashville When he came
to this county he located in the
southern part where he taught
school for awhile afterwards accept
ing a plate in South Kentucky Col
lege But teaching was not exactly
to his taste and he renewed the study
of law which he had taken up be
fore leaving West Virginia and in a
short time wad admitted to the bar
His success in his new profession is
too well known for comment Being
a true b1 Southern Democrat Mr
Duffy took to politics as naturally as
a duck to water He has been in
every battle with the dominant party
for Sclera and last year when he was
named as his partys candidate for
County Attorney he went in to win
and cameo of the battle by a small
majority it is true but which could
not have been won by anyone who
put less work and tireless energy
into the campaign than he He won
great victory and doubtless higher
honors await him in the future
John Robinsons Show the c
Only Big Circus Not In
the Trust I
All the really big cir4t see of this
country can be counted upon the
fingers of one hand and all but one
of them are now in a combine known
as the Circus Trusty and has for its
primary object the suppression of
all legitimate competition and the
curtailing of expenses by doing
away with parade and other features
that have become so established that
the circus would indeed seem sadly
lacking without them
The only firstclass circus that did
not enter the combine this year is
the John Robinson Shows and the I
management states that they will
positively not be led by this associa
tion of trust builders They will
not only continue the use of the
parade as a feature but will see that
each year adds some new and at
tractive novelty for the approbation I
of its host of patrons and admirers
Their action in thus standing out
alone against the combine ought to I
win them many friends and it is
safe to predict that their appearance
greeted with capacity business at
both the afternoon and night per
performances I
