The fiftieth anniversary of the battle of Gettysburg has passed, and the many who assembled there to review that awful trag edy, and to extol the bravery displayed, are now back at their old homes. It was the largest gathering of old soldiers that ever assembled in this country on an occasion of that kind, and from published reports the speeches made tingled with praise for the valor of those who "v. participated in the meeting fifty years ago. Those who wore the blue and those who donned the gray measured up to the highest point of courtesy and good will for the- participants of both sides, and showed, beyond ques tion, that war issues no longer divided our people or arrayed section against section. The dominant spirit manifested an united country in sentiment, in business and future greatness. The first meeting at Gettysburg was a crushing defeat for those who fought against Federal pow er, arid the Federal victory was the most costly of any engage ment in the history of the war. The second meeting was a victo ry for both sides and showed the magnanimity fathered by true courage and nobleness of heart. Good generalship, sincerity of purpose and undaunted courage heroically displayed, is now ad initied by both sides to have been the features of that costly conflict. But those days, thank God, have passed; those fearful times have flown. That period, dreadful and destructive, is only a monument to American cour age. No more will the tocsin of war be heard in civil conflict, no more will our country engage in sectional destruction. Bound together by common interests, united in the spirit of advance ment; cemented into one solid government by the blood of that awful struggle, civil war will be no more. Our country, greatest of all in resources, is bounding forward on substantial footing. We pride in the valor of those who wore the blue and the gray alike. We accept the verdict as a wise solution of conditions that could not have been rendered in a civil manner. The old soldiers no longer linger in the realm of bitterness, but pride in good will ana respect ior tnose wno op posed them on the fields of bat tle, and in reality we have, at last, a country united. It's a happy condition, and points to a solid future as truly al a solid present. The Court of Appeals, in an opinion handed down by Judge Carroll, reversed the decision of the Whitley circuit court in the case wherein the Adams ExpieJ33 company was fined for carrying a shipment of liquor into dry territory. The court holds the 'Kentucky statute is constitution al and operative where it can be shown that the liquor is to be .sold or. .used in violation of the State "law, but is inoperative where it is delivered for the per sonaland private use of an indi vidual.

If you will turn out and support me, I will consider it a great fa vor, and besides I will ever feel grateful. Thanking you before hand, am your obedient servant, ad L. T. Neat. I Income Tax. The income tax is popularly ex pected to apply to only those who have incomes above the limita tion fixed by the law. This ex pectation may not be realized. There are already indications that it will apply to the poorest and humblest citizen not di rectly but indirectly. This is how the law may apply: The real estate owner whose income exceeds the legal limita tion cannot be prohibited from raising rents and thus compell ing his tenants to pay the tax.. The producer of the necessaries of life, the wholesaler of such commodities, and the retailer who fall under the law, can also increase prices to consumers and thus collect from them the tax they have to pay. The dealer in any commodity who may b e amenable to the law can do the same thing. On the other hand, the man whose income does not exceed the legal limitation may nor on ly indirectly pay income tax as above, but directly on the divi dends of his insurance policy and other little investments that he may have. He may also pay the tax on any indebtedness that he may have, which is a source of income for someone else. Further, he may be doub ly taxed for the same thing, in one instance indirectly, in the other directly. All this appears from the oper ations of the income tax laws of other countries, whose experi ence is that the burden finally rests upon the poor. If this should prove to he the case, the law will have to be greatly changed if it accomplish what is intended taxation in proportion to ability to pay. Vote For Best Qualified Men. The News never takes part in the contest of the county for the various county offices, but it is nevertheless interested in seeing the best qualified men chosen so that the county may secure the most "intelligent service in the management of all its affairs. In all the walks of life where men are engaged for any kind of service character and ef ficiency are requisites. The most efficient men employed, in banks and stores and factories command the highest salaries and inefficient man or men who are not trustworthy hardly ever succeed in securing good posi tions and invariably lose them when better qualified men can be secured. The discharge of public duties is as important as the discharge of private ones. An office holder is a public servant and he is employed by the voters of the people to per form specific duties and the one question for the voter to consid er is the test made by Jefferson 'is he capable, is he honest?" Nothing else should be considered No incapable man or unreliable man should be voted for, no matter how good a hand shaker he is or how entertaining. Be ing a good fellow does not quali fy any man for office and should not be considered unless all the other qualities are combined with it. The Democratic voters of Hardin county are intelligent enough and discrim i n a ti n g enough to pick out out the best qualified men in intelligence and in character to serve them. We advise them when they go to vote on August the 2nd to con sider every candidate only from the standpoint of fitness for the position to tvhich he aspires. Elizabethtown News. Pellyton.
