T?$ I MT. STERLING ADVOCATE. 'FIRST TO LAST-THK TRUTH: NKWS-IDITORIALS-ADVKRTISIMINTS" VOLUME XXX. MT. STERLING, KENTUCKY. THURSDAY, OCTOBER 21. 1920. NUMBER 3 1 rm rQrm- - i IP I i "T G. a P. Blamed for High Sugar Prices In a speech mfldo yesterday before fclarge crowd of Henderson county voters, Congressman David II. Kin cheloe explained how tho dilly-dallying of the Republican Congress was sponsible for thirty-cent sugar in fcls county. Had the Congress ac cepted President Wilson's rccom Inendation promptly sugar would liave been saved to American pur chasers,. In part the Congressman einjlained the situation as follows: he Lever Food Control Act, which was passed by a Democratic Congress during tho war, under which' the sugar corporation oper ated, contained a provision ending the existence of tho corporation when the armistice was signed. "ThSs sugar corporation bought the Cuban sugar crop of 1918, which was sold to American people at 11 and 12 cents per pound. Tho Pres ident, in a message to the Republi can Congress on the 8th of August, 1919, called attention to the fact that tho sugar corporation had ceased to function and urged this Republican Congress to pass an act immediately extending tho powers of this sugar corporation. Hearings Wwero conducted before a committee of the Senate having charge of this legislation and members of tho orig inal sugar corporation appeared be fore this committee and testified that they had no further powers under the original act by reason of tho cessation of the war. Notwith standing these representations by the President in his message, and the members of the sugar corporation, )tho Senate failed to pass the Taw -extending the life of this corporation until December 1, 1919. The Re publican nouse did not pass it until December 16, 1919, and tho House added amendments to tho Senate hill, which threw it into conference. The conference report was not adopted until the 28th day of De cember, 1919, and tho bill did not become a law until December 31, 1919. Many weeks before that all of the Cuban sugar had been sold to Eng- Sand and other countries and there fore the act was of no service to the 'American people. If this Republican Congress had passed the act 6mme diately after tho President had called its attention to the fact in his special message, the sugar corpora tion would have immediately bought the Cuban sugar crop at the same price it paid for it in 1918, and therefore the American people would have purchased sugar as ''cheaply in 1920 as they did in the year of 1919." Couple Marry Here Denman Highland Duko and Miss $Vinnie Saunders, were married in "hfew city yesterday afternoon at tho ;lSof Mr. and Mrs. Stanley Hen- ' iyW yflim street, the Rev. Dr. J. L. Clark performing the ceremony. Mr. Duke and his bride are popular young people of this county and have many friends who will learn with interest of their marriage.

Mr. Henry Ford said that the time for high prices was at an end And St seems that ho was right. Particularly in tho tire field has there been much specula tion. for dealers on every hand have been selling tires at a reduction, but the first announcement of a manu facturer's reduction was made last week -when the Lee Tire & Rubber Company of Conshocken, Pa., made a flat reduction of from 15 to 20 per cent on their complete line. This company is best' known for their line of Puncture-Proof Tiros, but also manufacture cord and fabric tires in all sizes. There has been a fall ing off of sales in the automobile lino all over the country, everyone waiting for the reduction they felt must come, but with the return of normal prices business will neces sarily be stimulated. TRAINED NURSES The National and State Boards of Health are urging the importance of healthy young women taking ad vantage of present opportunities to become trained ndrses. No more ad mirable and lucrative professions are open to women. Girls having finished one year of high school are eligible. The pressing need of Amer ica is great. Tho usual epidemics, and possibility of others, and the great endeavor of our people to reach and maintain better and higher standards of health for tho entire nation, causes this new demand for nurses. Those willing to avail them selves of this opportunity can write to Dr. A. T. McCormnck, State Board of Health Building, Louisville, Ky. The advantages are excellent, the training giving almost a Univer sity course, the pay most desirable, tho position secured and tho work fine and needed. MRS. R. G. STONER. THE OTHER SIDE N. H. Trimble has returned from Mcholasvillo whero he went a few days ago in order to get the real facts regarding the unfortunate killing of Arthur Denmnn by Prof. T. B. Threlkeld. Mr. Trimble says the people are deeply in sympathy with Professor Threlkeld and fam ily. He learned that after Profes sor Threlkeld and son had gotten into tho office of Denman Bros., nn employe was sent out of the room, the door locked, when the alterca tion between Logan Threlkeld, son of Professor Threlkeld and the Denmans- took place. Professor Threlkeld attempted to get out of the place, hut finding himself locked in, fired the fatal shot'. BUYS MODERN HOME W. C. Clay and W. R.

Tho burial was in Mach polah Cemetery this aftornoon, with services at tho grave. Mr. Ecton is survived by h5s wife and two chil dren. He was 03 years old and was highly esteemed and respected. fA guilty conscience needs no press Itfeat. A Worthy Contribution Roscoe Gilmore Stott, a clever prose composer in tho November Green Book gives a story free from fancy, concerning the life work of Mrs. Cora Wilson Stcwnrt. It tolls of her early impressions how to make hnppy her own people of the Cumberland foothills, and the idea that pressed hard on, her to teach the old as well as tho young tho fundamental principles of a common school education, so that from their own efforts these people may climb high and delve deep in learning what the world is made of and its aggres siveness. The writer had a fine sub ject and tho story is a most Snter esting one. We know Mrs. Stewart and arc proud that wo had the op portunity and did contribute, though in a small way, in assisting her to attain to tho gonl of her personal ambition, superintendent of schools. The story of this woman, famous by her own efforts, as published in the Green Book, amply pays the cost.

Bank street Of courso there are extremes in both directions, (but as a general th&ng a woman lives longer with a corset on tho outside than a man does with' corn whiskey on the in side. After all, it is a good thing that girls havo not taken to wearing the trousers. If they did, they would want to wear them as tight as they wear their skirts, and that would bo awful t So far as wo know, while some of them proceod leisurely, no seo- tioa hand was ever accused of not earning his stipend. Democratic Speaking Congressman J. B. Aswcll, of Louisiana, addressed a good crowd at tho courthouse in this city Tues day night in the interest of the Democratic ticket. He was intro duced by Judge E. W. Senff and made a pleasing address to his hear ers, bringing out the important is sues of the present campaign and convincing all that after all, the JJemocratic party is not what the so-called Republican orators would havo them believe. The blunders of Warren G. Harding were brought to the front in a way that mado for the merriment of many and showed plainly his incompetency for the of fice to which he aspires. TRAVELING MEN FAVOR GOVERNOR COX Traveling men of Fnslern Ken tucky met at Ashland and formed a Cox Commercial Travelers' Club last week. E. H. Phlpps was elected chairman, W. H. Caudill, secretary and treasurer Tho club will back the candidacy of. Cox; and Roosevelt, Senator J. C. W. Beckham and W. J. Fields for Ninth District Con gressman. The club passed resolu tions scoring scurrilous Republican literature attempting to mislead the traveling salesmen, which literature thoy stated hns been proven false to their satisfaction. GYPSY SMITH FAVORS LEAGUE A profound impression was cre ated in Louisville when Gypsy Smith, the famous English Evangelist, who is conducting a revival in Louis ville, declared in favor of the League of Nations. "If the League of Nations," he gndi, "prevents one war, lit proves its right to existence. No man cun be a follower of Jesus Christ and not be a lover of peace and a propa gandist for peace. Ho was the Prince of Pence, the author of pcatc. and the bringer of peace, and just in pro portion as we are faithful to Him and the great principles for which He died we shall do all in our power to promote the peace of tho world. "Any association or league which helps to brSng about the harmony and the brotherhood of nations is in lino with tho Divine will. And some where back of my mind and deeply rooted in my heart is tho feeling that tho divine father is looking to the groat English-speaking races of America and England, to bring the ro'igti of universal peace. "What an ideal for us to strive after! Along that road lies peace to the world, glory to God ana good will among men." Mr. Smith, who has recently ar rived from England, says that the English people want the League of Nations. JOHN REDMOND DEAD Died this morning on Holt avenue, John Rcdmon, aged about 80 years.

Clay, of Paris, were guests at a luncheon at tho Seelbach Hotel, Louisville, on last Saturday. The other guests at tho gathering wcro: Mrs. Luke P. Blackburn, Mrs. Simon Bolivar Buckner, Mrs. nelm Bruce and Mrs. Goorge R. Washburne.

"Make it Holy Covenant Crusade' Says Senator "Make it a holy covenant crusade from now until the end; other issues enn wait for two years," Charles A. Towne, former Republican United States Senator from Minnesota, has wired to Governor James M. Cox. The message, sent by Senator Towne from Tucson, Ariz., where he is seeking a return of henlth, read: "Nothing can pGcture my nnnnp piness that illness should keep mo silent in this most significant cam paign of onr history. "Let me advise ono thing with all my soul. Henceforth concentrate on tho covenant. I mean not relatively, but absolutely. Mention nothing else. Make it a holy covenant crusade to the end. Other issues, can waSt two years. This has waited twenty cen turies and if we fail in our duty now, God alone can measure the cos mic epoch' of recurrence. "For two thousand years Chris tians hnve made a mockery of the first and most inclusive tenet in their faith. For two thousand years a civ ilization blasphemously calling itself Christian has been perfecting the machinery by which death might be brought quickest to the vastest num ber of men and the surest destruc tion made of the highest available of labor sacrifices. , "In the face of the great war and its effects no public action not aimed at the consummation of peace has any sanction, human or divine, until that be accomplished. All else is sacrilege. "Tho prophetic hymn of that fair Bethlehem night must become the triumphant chorus of a contrite world. The United States can com plete that harmony now. "God has waited for the hour. He waits for us. We must not, dare not, fail." DEATH William Beecraft, aged 46 years, a resident of this county and mem ber of the AntSoch church, passed to his reward on yesterday, his life being cut short by a tubercular bone affection.

Slayer of March ' Is Freed by Jurj George Rose, 05 years old, is at free man because a jury in the Fay- ctte Circuit Court at twenty minute to four Tuesday freed him of a,' charge of killing E. L. March, Lex ington furniture dealer, on the ground that ho fired the fatal shots under stress of temporary emo t tional "insanity. March' had becat under indictment, charged with as saulting Rose's 14-year-old grand daughter, Mary Margaret Rose. Tba crowd in the courtroom cheered , from every corner of the public in stitution when tho jury brought ir the verdict, Judge Kerr ordering their airrest, but no arrests wero made. The jury brought in the ver- diet after ten minutes' consideration! of the evidence. ( Both Horry Miller and W. C. G, Hobbs for tho defense, declared that; "after one had heard the story oC Mary Margaret, twelve men could not find a man guilty for what Rose had done. Miller, in declnringiRosei was temporary unbalanced, said: "Rose had but one thought on his mind, a thought of his little granddaughter, assaulted, 14-year-' old girl who would be pointed out as? a girl that was not pure, and all be cause of a disgusting, lustful man of past middle age and with a wife and family." "We ask for no compromise ver dict. Either return to us an unqual ified acquittal or we ask you to im pose the severest penalty that you can impose under the law ccatn." Keene Daingerfield, Assistant County Attorney, said: "I am tho father of a little girl. . I know how George Rose felt when , such a thing happened to his grand daughter. I would have done what George Rose has done, but I would havo sincerely hoped that the jury would have been composed of men, with sufficient courage to send mer to the penitentiary for the rest of my life." In closing the case, Common wealth Attorney Hogan Yancey de clared : "Rose made a pledgo to his son oa his deathbed in which ho had prom ised to protect the child with his life. He has declared that he would have killed March despito this, out of love for his granddaughter, and he comes into the courtroom hiding and seeking liberty, not willing to pay for the carrying out of his pledge, behind a plea of temporary insanity." Dr. George P. Sprague, specialist! in mental and nervous diseases, and Dr. C. A. Nevitt, answering a hypo thetical question, said they believed the man insane when he fired tb'd'1 shot. Police Judge John J. Rileyf and Magistrate Charles P. Dodd, Ktt whose office Constable Rose was employed, both testified as to Rose's poculiair actions after ,the ladict ments wero returned against March', If statistics wero available prob ably it would bo found that 87 per cent of tho people would make fools of themselves if they had the money; to spare. The woman who goes down town," in-a seo-moro skirt and a peok-a-boo waist can bo awfully shocked be- cause her husband goes around thai house in an old pair of pants and an undershirt. Somo of tho princesses could mnko themselves look mora attrac tive if they would rub mora soap on their necks and less powdor on their noses. Somehow or other the doctor never has to advise mother to take plenty of exercise. The advice ia always reserved for daughter. .Ai.iX.. -.i a aajAjaM .
