tors Mr Proctor ought to hear ffdtn his conflbittieuta on subject rt r Surrender Demanded The New York Times has constituted itself the special cbampionof the reorganizers and is lamenting because Mr Bryauwilluse his strength and the numerical strength of his follow lug to defeat Democratic reorganiza tlon The editor df the Times with an IthanktheetliatIamnotas othermen air speaks ofI the immoral professions which the Democratic party was ledby Mr Bryan to make The Chicago platform was not the work of Mr Bryan or of any one mau While the silver plank was copied from the Nebraska platform it was adopted by Democratic primaries county coo ventiohs and state conventions and it was so adopted before anylarge num ber of Democrats thought of Mr Bryan being a candidate The Nebraskan silverplank was not copied because Nebraska bad adopted it but bccaus it expressed what iheDemocralic par ty wanted to express It is nut Mr Bryan that the Times should fear but the people who join hint iu Democratic principles The Times is orip of the papers that helped to elect Mr Mc Kinley and now It utters to assist the Democrats if they will only accept a Republican platform It is not will lug to make any compromiseit de mands a complete surrender on the part of those who have supported tne platforms of 1896 and 1900 It com plains that Mr Bryan will pot meet them the reorganizers half way and even If he would to meet him halfway would be fatal to their purpose What is this but saying that reorgani zation would be a failure unless the Democratic party went over half way toward the Republican position on public positions When The Common er dills attention to such editorials as the one above referred to it is not for the purpose of disturbing harmony for tbe reorganizers are the ones who are disturbing harmony but reference is made to such editorials to show how impassible it is to keep real Democrats in toe same party Wheu the party is made congenial for the men who bolted it will not be congenial for those who voted the ticket To invite DON ters back simply to have another test of strength fs lot harmonyIt is riot Harmony can only exist when the members of toe party strive for tbe same thing and while the reorganizes openly boast that their purpose is to repudiate the partys resent utteran ces they cannot be sincere in their talk abuut uniting the party The Democrats who were courageous enough to condemn their own president when he became a tool or tbe Wall streetsyudi cates still have convictions and cau hardly be expected to surrender them at the demand of bolting newSpapers whose stockholders are unknown to the public and whose editors lend themselves to the defense uf every in iquitous scheme proposed for the plun der of the masses and the enrichment cribs privileged few Most people be loDgto a party as they belong to a courcb nofbecause of tbe number of members but because of the creed and such people cannot be enticed from their principles by mere promises of success But even on the low ground of expediency it would be suicidal to listen to the advice of the reotganizers because tbeir plans would alienate more voters tban they could by auy reurjranizerewould recognize this if they really desired the success of the party but the are to well pleased with must of tbe Republican policies that tbey would rather continue

fldair FIsGal60urt Makes ftn Order for flnotHer Bridge Russells Creek Above Wilsons mill and Levies a Tax of 20 cents on the One Hundred Dollars QUITE A NUMBER OF SPEECHES IThe Fiscal Court of this county was in session three days of last week and besides transacting the regular bust ness such as allowing claims ct a departure was made that marks th beginning of a new era ladened with good for the public welfare of Adau county The bridge question was Important matter to consider and our Magistrates gave the represetativer of both sections of country askiuk for bridges a fair and impartial hear ing on Wednesday then on Thursday went out to Russells creek and invests gated the matter for themselves After their visit to the creek they de cided to build a bridge over the above- mentioned stream on the Somerset readjust above Wilsons Mill but required from the people of that section the right of way and 40000 which will be forthcoming from the enterprising citizens who have been working to this end To build the bridge willcost the county about 3180000 and therefore a levy of 10 cents to the 310000 worth ot property was made fur this purpose The Court also made a similar levy for the purpose of buying road tools and improving the public highways A strong fight was made by the people on the Stanford road for a bridge across the creek at their ford but when the sledge hammer of decision fell it was knocked out by one vote The failure of this proposition was due to the fact the Magistrates a majority of them believed that the county was unable to incur the expense of erecting two bridges at the same time At any rate the people on the Somerset road won the fight and won it fairly and honestly and while the other side was down ed defeated there lingers no ill feel tug but to the contrary we congratu late them on their success and the hon orable methods by which it was secur ed Furthermore we extend the hand of fellowship to every Magistrate be lieving that each one acted on his judgement for the public good The move made to bridge the streams and to improve the roads Is a sign that Adair county will not longer be content to trod in the old beaten paths that have forced many of our best citizens to seek homesin the Wes tern countries It forestalls an era tha will prove a blessing to this couuty that will give inspiration to public en terprise and tf kept up will give thl county prestige over any county in Southern Ky Mr W F Neat introduced the bridge question to the court in an earnest and able manner He showed the importance of bridging the streams making roads and departin- from the methods ot the past Judge W W Jones made the court one the best speeches that has been made in this section for many years He bpoke of our past and present conj ditions and marked out a line tion if followed is bound to result Inj disagreeaIblenC6S the Magistrates the County Judge aeItJunsetof the discooted He suggested bridging all the streams where bridges are needed and to establish a system of pike building His speech was inspir ing and ought to be obeyed The Hon Geo Nell also made a speech along the same line of Judge Jones He urged the bridging question and the same improvements as men tinned by Judge Jones Mr Nell show ed the impossibility of making im provements without Increslng the tax rate and he also stated that a high tax rate meant a good healthy public con dition Be is right Public condl Lions like private affairs are only advanced in proportion to public efforts and expense In our commendation the majori ty of our Magistrates and our states ment that the present Fiscal court Is leaving the old beaten paths that have dwarfed public enterprise and cramp ed public spirit we do not mean to cast any reproach on its predecessor tho Court that retired last year Out of the save Magistrates who guarded well the counties interests for the last four years lyre of fheatwere reelected In the Gradyville and Error district Mr J l Jngtaad supersedes Mr T 9t tttww sand to teralThiMe Cfc 0 4y Ir and Little Cake district Mr SP Sullivan succeeds Mr J M Williams We can truly say that Mr Cowed and Mr Williams are thoroughly progressive in matters of public interest and that they have the courage to enforce their convictions Jh the year 1000 this county built two excellent iron bridges the Magistrates making a levy of 321 cents to the 10000 worth of property for this purpose and It was due to the efforts and votes ot these two gentlemen in connection with Squires Eubank and Wolford that the bridges were built These four Magls trates shouldered the responsibility directed the public mind to the neces ity of such improvements and demon traced our ability to own and enjoj hem Last Fall Mr Williams and Mr Gowen were no j candidates tot election but fortunately fur the count and for the friends of public improvements their successors are imbued with he same spirit and have the courage rise above the petty clamor ot chronic grumblers and do their dut egardless of consequences Mr Will ams was present when the bridge question was before the Court and in i brief but pointed speech advocated the building of the budges asked by the two sections and especially the one on the Stanford road Taking a fair square view of our fu ture we believe that a spirit of prog ess is on that bridges will be built good roads constructed and that our farmers will find our county one of the best In the land We rejoice in the evidence of the departure of fogyism and the inauguration of a healthy public spirit We believe that the Fis cal court realizes its importance and power that it holds the reins of p Og ess and disaster Later on this paper will have more to say concerning the Fiscal court and will endeavor to ac
