UUAWMMHh AND ALL WENT MKItllV AH A MARRIAGE IHXL Mas Meeting A Great Hiirrrm Monday night, Oct. 4tb, Republi cans mon and women Democrats, men and women, and possibly some Socialists attended tho Repub lican rally which was u big success Trained singers rendered America and the Star Spangled Banner In which tho big audlenc'e Joined heart ily. Hon. John M. Tlnsley presided over the meeting. Mrs. Fred Hurnuui, the first speak er on the program, spoke on the var ious lines along which women may work In politics to be most effective. Robert W. Cole, who Is an excel lent speaker as he talks In an easy conversational manner which makes fho audience feel as tho they aro lis tening to u neighbor, told of the waste of the present administrating He said that while spruce, which en ters largely Into the manufacture of aeroplanes, was offered to the gov ernment at $110 per 1,000 feet the contract was given to. Dlerks. the warden of a penitentiary and hii paid $802.00 per 1,000 feet. A number of patriots had offered to supply the spruce without profit. The speaker mentioned the f.iet that while our boys were dying for the lack of ureoplanes, those In charge of the building of them were experimenting with the new Liberty motor. Instead of buying motors al ready tested and proved. After building 1,600 planes, with 600 changes, they were scrapped. During this time the Germans were using thousands of planes against our boys. One of the men in charge of the work, on being asked the cause of the delay, said "I don't know a d d thing about It." The extravagance of the adminis tration is largely responsible for the fact that Liberty Bonds are worth 85c to 90c on the dollar. Mrs. J. W. Hughes said she was not a speaker, but also, she was no slacker. After urging all to register she urged women to do their part. If the polls are not decent for 4wo men they are not decent for men. Mrs. Hughes said the women of the Blue Grass and Western Kentucky will turn out and vote and she urged the women of the mountains to do the same. "Don't let them say we can't get out to vote." Paying her respects to tho league of nations, Mrs. Hughes said that while she would bo willing, even tho with heartache, to give up her son to fight for his country she would object to doing so when some for eign country had voted war on us. Mrs. Hughes objected to Great Brit ain having six votes to the United States one. Judge J. D. Tuggle. In a speech bristling with humor, said that fifty years ago woman's suffrage was look ed upon as one of the Jokes of tho day, as was prohibition. Today, both are accomplished facts. Tho spoak- er said that If any person asks how a lady can vote, tho answer Is. "Just the sumo aa a man." Tho responsi bility, pilvllege and duty have now heen passed on to the women and It Is only J question as to how they will use the voto. As American citi zens, he urged tho most oarnost tliot and study of the questions of the day Government changes as the people change. There will always bo burn ing Issues to confront us and respou slblllty to hund down to future gen erations. When it comes to thinking, do your own, draw on your recollection tlon't bo led off by promises. Look to the hijtory of your country as one of your guides. While President Wllbon promised to keep us out of war. tho biggest thing ho did keep us out of was su gar. Eight yearn ago he promised to lower prices. "It Is a good thing I don't cuss. There would be a blue streak In the house." Before tho war one could get u good family steak for 25cts. Now one cun't get enough to bait the mouso trap. Then we hud low prices and good times. In six months after the Democrats came In the railroad sidings were full of Idle cars. They would have been full yet If the devil had not broken loose In Europe. Tho war has been over some tlmo and they have made no move to bring down prices. The speaker predicted a 50,000 majority In Kentucky for tho Repub lican nominees. Congressman J. M. Robslon said he was glad to be able to talk to his neighbors and friends Including so I many from the opposite party. The speaker said be believes every man and woman wai s things done right and tho It is bard to hear one's party leaders cr .elzed It Is good for tho country. Mr. IlobBlon nald that down In lloyd, Jessop u I In Louisville, the Democrats are i.aylng the most tre mendous issue ji the League of Na tions. In the r.iue Grass they uro chiefly uppealln ; to people's preju dices, stating tl.at with the election of Harding we shall have mixed schools, churches, trains and that that the whites and colored people will mix up and marry. He then shuttered such nonsense. Mr. Rohslon said the first official vote ho cast In Washington was for tho realization of woman's suffrage. There are millions of foreigners in our cities with no knowledge of what It means to be Americans. The good American mothers will lift up the meaning of the word. If you here do not take a hund there are a lot of women In the cities who do not care for your home, church or land, who will. "When you vote for the things you think best you have done a good day'n work." Senator Dcckliam was first for the League of Nations us presented by .Mr. Wilson. Ills last vote was against It. It is you Democrats who still stand by It that are wrong. Tom Watson of Georgia ran on an antl-admlnlstration ticket and beat both opponents. He stated over his signature that but for the mulish obstinacy of President Wilson, wo should have had peace long ago. If there Is any class of men who know what the league of nations means it is the U. S. Senators. They have heard It discussed and re-discussed. Seventy-six out of 96 U. S. Senators aro against the league of nations as insisted on by Pres. Wil son. Out of forty-seven Democratic Senators, twenty-seven are against the so called Wilson League. Congressman Robslon then anal yzed tho voting power of the various nations and conclusively proved that the United States would be at the mercy of tho British Empire and that Its vote could be nullified by Liberia. He also stated that under the treaty us it now stands wo should be called upon to defend the present frontlet a of any and every nation that Is a party to the league, wheth er Just or not. This guarantee can be given in only two ways. By Amer ican money and the Uvea of Ameri can boys. "Do you want It?" he asked. Those who heard Congressman Holislou felt the earnestness of his Americanism and also felt that they can tiust his good sense and patriot ism to the limit. XO CHANGE IX RUU'IC PRICES Tho Catron Garage Is In receipt of it wire from the Bulck Company stating that they have no intention of changing the price of Bulck cars for the season of 1921, but in the event of an unexpected reduction of labor and material affecting the cost mid Justification of a lowering of the list prices of Bulck cars prior to May 1st. 1921, they refund to every purchaser during that period tho amount of such reductions.

Four days wero spent nt tho Mis souri metropolis, and tho visit was pronounced most pleasant. Beside attending the business ses sions of the convention, held at the Coliseum, tho delegates were the re cipients of many social Invitations' and entertainment affairs wero num erous. Grand opera, fashion shows, smokers, river rides and barbecues were on tho program which termin ated with u musicule and dance "atop tho world" on tho roof of the United Drug Co.'s new $7,000, 000 plant at which 300 theatrical performers appeared. What St. Louis thinks of the Unit ed Drug Co. Is shown by an editorial which appeared in a St. Louis paper. It said, In part: "Every Rexalllte delegate hero this week has an Interest in St. Louis' prosperity amounting to nt least $500. Tills comes because each delegate is u share holder in the United Drug Co., which has Just opened Its now plant hero. Tho pros perlty of the shareholders shows the wonders of the co-operative system ns exemplified by Louis K. Liggett, president. St. Louis welcomes tho Rexalllto delegates and hopes tho city will extend to them Its best hos pitality." SLV JIM An example of Governor Cox's campaign chicanery, to say nothing of his insulting attitude toward his country, is brought to light by the New York Sun's article written by Its correspondent traveling with the Cox entourage. At Salt Lake City. Utah, after characterizing tho Republican slo gan, America First," as synonymous with the Prussian "Deutchland ubor alles," Mr. Cox handed out to the newspaper correspondents "as a stenographic report of the incident" the speech with these wlrds added: "America first in the progress of the world: America tho leader In the readjustment now at hand. What sort of America first could you have with Mexico, Turkey and Russia as our associates as proposed by the reactionaiy candidate?" Mr. Cox's soap-box oratory keeps him pretty busy amplifying and cor recting. Mr. Cox had plenty of time to drive a race horse on tho track at the Minnesota State Fair, but he was too busy to spend a couple of hours telling the Senate Investigat ing Committee what he knew about the alleged campaign contributions of the Republicans. Ho doesn't oven take himself seriously. Franklin & Cannon aro steadily Increasing their business, due to tho excellent stock of goods they aro handling and thru the fact that they let the people of Knox County know that they appreciate their business. Collie L. Franklin says advertising certainly pays, both In the Edison Phonograph department and in tho dry goods department. tMafliMjJjta Start your bank account with 2 600 depositors.
