One Dollar Per Year in Advance

Parlv In Knox County,
A good idea as tlio desperate
straights which the Progressives
are in to find candidates to put
out against the regular Republi
can nominees was evidenced last
week when John D. White was
nominated by them for Judge of
the Court of Appeals to make
the race against Judge Andrew
J. Kirk of Paintsville. Only two
martyrs could be found who
would do the Abraham and Isaac
act, John D. White and Theo 13.
BlaUey, and of the two evils,
well, we can't blame them much
for choosing White. This only
proves our contention all along,
that the Progressive party in
Kentucky is only a Democratic
Aid Society. No one concedes
White an outside chance to win
and the only thing that could
happen would be to detract from
Judge Kirk's vote enough to let
a Democrat win.
There was once a country youth
who, when he went to town to see
his first circus, wandered into
the menagerie tent ami here he
gazed with awe at strange ani
mals, the like of which he had
never beheld or even imagined.
At last he reached the enclosure
where the girafF was kept and
there this animal was calmly
standing and never moved a mus
cle. This was too much for the
hoy and he turned to his com
panion and said, "Come on Bill,
I'm going home, there ain't no
such animal as that."
Even so with the Bull Moose:
people who were hypnotized into
believing that that the Bull
Moose was soon to be the Nation
al emblem are turning to their
neighbor and saying, "Come on
Bill, and let's go home, there
ain't no such animal."
10 TO I
The registration Tuesday in all
the cities in Kentucky must have
been a big disappointment to the
Roosevelt followers. From all
sections come reports showing
that the Republican party is far
from being a "has-been" as the
Progressives would have made
believe. The bubble has burst
ed and the Progressive party, as
far as Kentucky is concerned, is
In Louisville the big fight waB
made, and here, where every
newspaper of importance was
fighting the Republican party
and every effort was made to de
stroy it, the Republican registra
tion exceeded the Bull Moosers
on the first day of registration.
Of, the cities and towns report-
' ed it the Evening Post in their
Wednesday edition the registra
tion showed that the Progress-
iv 8 had only about one to every
ten Republicans outside of Louis
ville. Here in Barnnurville it
was freely predicted by the Pro
gressives that they out number
-the Republicans, and yet they
registered only 08, less than the
Democrats who had 7S, while the
.Republicans had 107. In Mid-
dlesboro the porcentage was ev
on greater for hero they had only
02 while the Republican's had
J177, and in Pinovillo they only
.counted !W to 180 Republicans.

very interesting Utter in Sunday's
Lexington Lender which we tnkc the
privilege of copying, dealing ns it
does with present tiny politics.
In the great three-cornered con
test for the Presidency I Imd free
from political bins selected Roose
velt, as the most available, resource
ful, best equipped of the trio in
fact I had classed him ns one of the
great, if not the greatest men born
to America, and felt tttnt I would
do ntysell an honor to vote for him
but in n recent talk with one of the
smnrtest women in Fayette county,
anew idea came into my old hew',
and it run like this.
The ficti'ious high price of nil
values nnd commodities hns reached
the danger line, and the farther it
goes, nnd the worse it gets the
greater will be the crash when it
does come. Now if the Democrats
can perform the some stunt that
they did under Grover Cleveland,
from 1S93 to 1807, then it would
be better. Choosing the least ol
two evils to vote for nnd elect the
Democratic ticket now than defer it
to some other sad day, for under
present conditions, it takes about
trelile the amount of monev to enr
ry on the business of the country
that it did during the Ust Demo
cratic administration, from the fact
thnt every article of commerce pos
sesses fully three times the money
value now that it did then A
horse or mule thnt could be bought
then for fifty dollars would cost
fully two hundred now, nnd run
ning this out into all commodities it
will in the end cause a money
stringency thnt will start; in motion
the greatest financial crash thnt the
world has ever seen. So now if the
Democrats can knock the props
from under our "Frenzied Finnnce"
as the' did then let us stick to them
and see the fun."
Well I just tumbled to the idea
and swung back into the Democrat
ic column. It is true that the mem
ory of those lean years kind ol
causes the cold chills to chase each
other up and down my spinal col
umn. I recall the pathetic armies
of the unemployed that marched
the highways crying for bread, I
remember Coxey's army that stalk
ed through village and hamlet like
a specter. I see men toiling in field
and factory at a starving wage and
impenetrable gloom brooded over
the laud like a pall. I recall that I
saw good farming land sell at
twenty-seven dollars per acre with
in three miles of Lexington. I saw
corn sold and delivered at seventy-
five cents per barrel. I saw good
horses and mules sell at from
twenty-fire to fifty dollars per head.
And worse still I saw tenants upon
rented farms sold out at sheriffs
sale of all they possessed on earth
to pay their rent, and turned out
penniless upon the world.
Then with all this lodged in my
memory it is not wonderful that I
should shudder just a little when I
think of the play being placed upon
the stage again; but feeling that
perhaps it will be best in the end, if
the Democrats enn repeat and cause
a stampede from present conditions
I am their huckelberry and will cast

All Parties Are
For Judge Kirk
(Lexington Leader)
HE Louisville Evening Post offers a suggestion which
the Leader gladly endorses. It is that all parties
unite in supporting Circuit Judge A. J. Kirk fur the
vacancy on the Court of Appeals bench caused by the resigna
tion of Judge E. O. O'Rear which was filled temporarily by
the appointment of Mr. Robert II. Winn by Governor Wilson.
Judge Kirk is an ideal selection and is sure of nomination
and election no matter what happens in Kentucky or the Na
tion, but his endorsement by all parties would have a good ef
fect. The Post says on this subject:
"The retirement of all other candidates
makes certain the nomination by tho Repuhlicun
party of Judge Andrew J. Kirk, of Johnson
county, for the vacancy upon the Kentucky Court
of Appeals to be caused by the retirement of
Judge R. II. Winn in Novembar. Mr. Kirk is now
a Circuit Judge, and one of the best in Kentucky.
The district is so overwhelming Republican that
even in this year of certain Republican disaster
the Republican nominee should win easily.
Moreover, Judge Kirk is of the material out of
which Appellate Judges should be made. The
Democratic party will do a graceful act in not
contesting the election, and Wilson, Taft mid
Roosevelt men can all unite in the promotion of
this Judge."
"So say we all of us." We believe the Leader and Post
express the sentiment of practically the entire district and
that the suggestions oll'ered will be acted upon by the voteraj
of the district.
