LETTER Judge Parkers letter is a clearcut straightforward presentation of the real issues in this campaign without any resort to subterfuge or tnisrepre sentation such as we had in the letter of his opponent It is manly forceful without bombast tree from cheap tricks fair ana honest The caseof the democratic party as made by its platform and its record is fully presented The man who Is honestly seeking the Issues in the present cam paign will find them here The democratic nominee pays es pecial attention to four great questions though he makes reference to others These four are Tariff Reform Imperialism Economical AdminIstra tion and honesty in the Public Service A very considerable amount of space is devoted to these two latter sissies be cause it is apparent to every man who has sumo in contact with the great business interests of this country by which is meant not only the big Interests but the business interest in broad sense that these are the points upon which the present administra lion record is weakest in the popular mind With regard to the questions involy ed in whathas been popularly termed imperialism Judge Parker points to the enormous centralization of the government with the tremendous dition to the power of the executive which has followed and very aptly says that this issue which has been thrust upon the country involves a decision whether the law of tbe land or the rule of individual caprice shall govern It could not have been put Parker points out that the republican cry that the revision of the tariff must be given over to the friends of the tariff is met by a counter cry in the democratic platform that revision and gradual reduction shall be by the friends of the masses and for the common weal and not by the friends ot its abuses its extortions and discriminations The relationship of an overprotecting tariff to the creation and maintenance of the trusts is made clear- President McKinley Judge Per ker points out undertook honestly to carry out the purpose of the act so far as It bears upon reciprocity but reypublican party have repudiated his words and the friends of reciprocity can hope for nothing from them Judge Parker shows that tho demo cratic party stands for the American merchant marine which it will aid by all prayer legislation bus by suh fiddlesheshows the parr the democrat ic party played in bringing about the reclamation of the arid lands of the magnitudesto of 6 Vast amount of money which must b gotv ernment he points to the gravo need pity of capable and honest administration with no possibilities graft The refusal of the republicans to permit an investigation into the exec tlve departments of the governm- eandtbe facts that such lnvestigatl JIfI p O oc 0 10P1 fJ OO 1 0- IJP P1 ZOJI fQ aIT JI can be obtained only through democratic successis thus presented Recent disclosures coupled with the rapid augmentaticn of govern ment expenditures show a need of the investigation of every department of the government The democrats in congress demanded it The republican majority refused the demand The people can determine by their vote In November whether they wish an honest and thorough investigation A democratic congress aud executive will assure it One of the most interesting passages in the letter is that in which Judge Parker promptly accepts the challenge of President Roosevelt who defend- Ing the executive pension order which it is charged was illegal said It is easy to test our opponents sincerity in tbe matt r The order in questio- revocable at the pleasure of the ex ecuelve If our opponents come into power they can revoke this order Will they authorltively ttate that they intend to do this To this challenge Judge Parker says This suggests the suspicion at least that the order was made to create an Issuethat It was supposed to present a strong strategic position in the bat tie of the ballots But as the making of that order was in my judgment an attempted though perhaps unwitting encroachment upon the legislative power and therefore unwarranted by the constitution the challenge is ac cepted It elected I will revoke that order But I go further aud say that being done I will contrlblt my effort toward the enactment of a law by both houses of congress and approved by the president that will give an age pension wlthont reference tp abili ty to the surviving heroes of lie civil war and under the provisions which a pension may be accepted with digni ty because of the conlclousne that it comes as just due from the people through their chosen representatives and not as largest dlsrlbued by their chief executive Qne other exceedingly interesting reference to the Roosevelt letter is contained in that portion of the letter relative to remedies for the trust evil It will be recalled that Mr Roosevelts letter contained a sneering reference to Judge Parkers mention of the common law the republican nominee evidently assuming that Judge Parkers reference was either a slip or evidence of ignorance of the law To this Judge Parker say Whether there is any cmmnn law blch can be applied and enforced by the federal cuurtdCabuut t e deiermln ed by the proMtleui or t1l candidate J ir tbe presidency Tni determin e tlnn of this qlestiin was left by the people in framing the constitution to the judiciary and tint to the executive The supreme court of the eStates has recently considered this question and the case of the Western Union Telegraph Co vs the Cal Publishing Co to be found in the 181st volume of tbe United States Isupremif apnrt reports at page 92 it

nobody ever heard of him prosecuting a negro he knew in his peohaveHunterEdwards scamble and supportGeorge commerce in the absence of United States statutes specifically covering the case Such is the law of the land In conclusion Judge Parker eptto mlzes the campaign Issues in those flue question Shall economy of administration be demanded or shall extravagance beE pShallbay by the people or must justice MShallequal opportunity or for special privl IIgtSballit remain a govorument of law or become one of individual ca priceShall we cling to the rule of the people or shall we embrace

Circuit Judge in the district comprising the counties of Green Taylor Marion and wash- ington subject to the action of the Democratic party Since the editor of The Colum bia Spectator was treed on hi own proposition and since our questions touched nothing ers except the proposition at issue and required answers that he re fused to give he cries out that we are writing from a malicious standpoint In his last issue he says ItThe News does not discuss Judge Parkers letter of acceptance at all but devotes column and a half to malicious personal insinuations against The Editor of The Spectator Its stock of petty spite and invictiv- seemsto be abundant but con sidering the source of this article and remembering that the read ers of both papers are acquainted with the facts we will not be di verted from our course havin other and greater duties befor- us The average reader of our county papers know the differ ence between sarcastic personal ities and argument knowing tha theone is prompted by a heart malice and the other is indulge- in by those who are attempting to discuss live issues of the hour Now Mr Editor the battle wa of your own choosing You open ed the ball by pointing out ou inconsistency as appeared to you and stated that we should be sup porting the Populist nominees to be consistent Had you read and obeyed that scriptural injunction judge not that ye be not judged you would not have had a single paragraph directed against your support of Mr Hunter and support of Mr Edwards Yo undertook to administer som medicine to us butwhen you wer given a few spoonfulls under the old directions shake well oNall is malice on our part You may indirectly bid for sympathy and dodge the issue but the intelligent people of this communi ty know that our article did not contain an unfair question nor intimate an insinuation that miss ed the mark when applied to your political life We haveno apolo gy tooffer and no harmony plea to enter for our position last week You were held to the original proposition in our arti- clefi but refused to measure up to your opportunity if you are at heart for pure political methods regardless of your own political fortunes You have denounced Democrats in almost every con ceivable manner You stood for Hunter when he was on the big side you joined the Edwards forces when it was clear that they were on the band wagon You have denounced frauds asvehe tr mently as any man in all this country when directed against the part or party to which you cling but have never unearthed anything but righteousness in your own camp We have no more confidence in your sincerity for pure politics than we have inI the average peanutpolitician notwithstanding your loud protestations to the contrary You have appeared before the country denouncing frauds with Go liahlike audacity but never stayI ed in one place long enough for a stone to hit you If there is one man in this entire country who likes the big side above all other considerations we are impressed that you are that man You may preach political purity You may seek to impress the people that you love country above your par ty that you will always approve the right and condemn the wrong and yet it will take salt to make it palatable with us We did not touch your personal e and have no desire to cast one insinuation against the sacredness of your honor and standing as a gentle man It is your political position your off and on your do and dont attitude that is at issue Your standing as a respected Christian gentleman your enterprising spirit are not molested You are our County Judge and so far as we know one of the best in the State We have heard that your political position was not of your own seeking but a case of the of fice seeking the mana condi tion that indicates the strong litical standing you have wit your party and the profound re spect and admiration the entir- people have for you as a compe tent man You can yet answer our questions and put yourself on record You denounced theDem ocrats for throwing out the vot of some counties when contesting for State offices Why is it a crime for us to ask you your opin ion of throwing out the vote o Bell and Leslie counties and giv nominations l If you believe it right to purchase youreopinion if not then explain how your candidate received his nom ination without the taint of fraud Your reference to the source of our article attempting to discredit honorable standing will not count for much in this part of the baby the people of this section Acting Governor W P Thorne owen brow the rebuke and censure o the people of Louisville and in fact the best people of the State by pardoning Buchter a Louis ville life convict We can no see any just reasons to warrant criminalestatement is not sufficient to justify his acts Evidently he was the victim of a soft plea that tourched the heart doorsf thde censure as much the duty of a Governor itsevery case a
