Extremism has wrought
havoc in ail ages and in all causes
and while many are inclined to
think its devastating force a
thing of the distant past, yet its
blighting power is swepting on
to-day as it has not been felt for
the last quarter of a century. In
the political world he who es
pouses a cause appealing to sen
timent.and passion builds up his
contention on the flimsy and
dangerous foundation of extrem
ism and we see its bad results
shaping the actions of the great
body of people. Under the lead
ership of Mrs. Parkhurst and a
few other women England is pay
ing tribute, in treasury and dis
ruption of society, to that small
band of extremist that may yet
lead to very serious ends. In
this country more moderate
methods are being used to ob
tain the same results sought by
the English suffragists, and un
less the cranky extremists takes
the lead its adjustment will
doubtless be founded on the best
judgment of the people and no
harm come to society. In the re
ligious life of this country the
ear marks of the extremist are
beginning to appear. There are
a few publications that are do
ing all that can be done to arouse
the Protestants against the
Catholics and the devotees of
such publications are appearing
in various partsof the country.
Tom Watson, editor of The Jef
sersonian, brilliant and enter
taining in his writings, devotes
much time to arotfsing preju
dice against Catholics and yet,
the dire calamity he predicts
comes largely from his own im
aginations. This same Mr. Wat
soa, extreme against Catholicism,
has been and is now extreme in
every position he takes. Hp. op
poses foreign missions with all
his power; he sees no good in any
public official. He is a critic, not
a reformer, anti he and his kind
wherever found whether in po
litical or religious life, public or
civil, create more trouble and
produce less genuine good than
any other class of citizens claim
ing to have the good of the coun
try at heart. The people of this
country should allow their judg
ment to lead and not be swayed
by passion or prejudice. We take
no stock in persecution; do not
believe the best results come
from following extremists in any
line. This is a country in which
we alt have the privilege of wor
shiping as our conscience dic
tates and no crank or set of
cranks have yet seriously dis
turbed. Tom Watson and other!
publicists who claim to be giving
general news and fighting for
the advancement of our country
should look on the bright side of
conditions as well as the dark.
So fars we are able to deter
mine patriotism is not confined
to any political party nor safe

In,to-day's issue of the News
Mr. Lilburn Phelps, of James
town, announces his candidacy
to represent Russell and Casey
counties in the next Legislature
of Kentucky. His candidacy is
subject to the action of the Re
publicanSvoters, expressed at the
August primary. Mr. Phelps'
fitness for the honor is so well
known that what we may say-
wouldbe a repetition of express
ions heard every day in the two
counties composing the district
He is a lawyer of recognized
ability, and a gentleman of char
acter and standing, a man who
would not be embarrassed in a
Legislative Hall, one who would
do his duty be watchful of the
people's interest, and at all times
would be at his post of duty.
We believe that good lawyers
make the most satisfactory rep
resentatives from the fact that
they know the laws now contain
ed in the statutes, and if bills
should be introduced conflicting
with existing laws, the error
would at once be discovered and
time saved. A gentleman of
education, of good moral stand
ing, well versed in the needs of
the people, we believe Mr. Phelps
would make an ideal represent
ative. He has every assurance
of his nomination and election,
but he is anxoius for every friend
to be at the polls and vote for
him in the primary, assuring
them that their confidence would J
be appreciated, and he promises
that he would, if elected, endeav
or to repay them by assisting in
the enactment of laws that
would redown to the benefit of
the entire district.

In this day of development
and expanding commerce, it
seems strange that such a fertile
and resourceful section as South
Central Kentucky, embracing
eight counties should be without
a railroad, but so it is and so it
may be for many years yet un
less the enterprising citizens
within the isolated territory
unite in effort and means
and work to this particular pur
pose. Talk of a railroad to Co
lumbia has often been indulged
in, but every effort to build has
passed like a phantom, and this
county is the same distance from
railroads as it was thirty years
ago. Within the eight counties
much mineral and timber wealth
exist, and in addition to this
their agricultural products are
far from an inviting market. In
