survived by three sons and two daughters who have the sympathy of all in their be reavemenn Squire Charles Rowe of Sparksville was in town Saturday and is an earnest and enthusiastic advocate of building substantial roads Mr Rowe does not and will not favor any plan of road building that fails to make permanent roads He is outspoken for a rock crusher and a tax sufficient to keep it going Squire Rowe is a man of good judgment firm in conviction and game enough to stand for what he beleives- to be for the best interest of the people We heartily endorse his position on making roads and trust that his as sociates will see as he sees and do as he does in this matter While our roads are bad and inmany places almost impassable we hear a great deal about making pikes but when the summer sunshine drys the mud then we all go merrily on and fail to carryout our good resolutions The fact is that the Commercial Club ought to start an investigation and find the most successful way of building roads and pre sent it to the Fiscal Court in april It is not what we think or want that change conditons but what we do It is time for all to pull together and do something Stand by the court in every effort to better the roads Mr W R Myers announces that he is compelled to shut down the electric light plant for a short time until he can secure fuel He is firing with wood and at present has exhausted his supply with no hope of replenishing until the roads are passable He regrets to take this step but there is no alternative at present This ought to impress our people of the importance and worth of making good solid roads The buyer cant buy and the seller cant sell in winter time The Lebanon papers contained items last week about Deputy Sheriff F H Winfrey landing several prisoners in the jail at that point Sheriff Patteson informs us that no prisoners were sent to the Lebanon jail and that Mr Win frey was only employed as a deputy through Circuit Court The City of Columbia is in darkness on account of a shortage in the fuel suppy due to the impassible condition of roads leading into Columbia A nice story to scatter broadcast over the land The officials of the Fiscal court and tax payers should swell with pride Mr John C Bryant of the Ozark community exhibited at this office eight ears of corn in one which is a curiosi ty There is one large ear and around it seven smaller ones Each ear has a seporate cob but the outside ears are all attached to the larger one Some weeks ago we announced that Mark Wilson had purchased a onethird interest in the blacksmith shop of John Parson but later information sHows that the cjeal fell from the lofty heights of expectancy into the valley of failure The deal failed to materialize- Luther Gideon Snead was arrested in Columbia Sunday and lodged with Jailer Tarter the county to pay his board for six months Snead made his escape from the road crew several months since and consequently has 180 days to

pike from Burkesville to Columbia is the slogan that is being sounded by every enterprising citizen in the coun ty Several pikes have been proposed but not one that would benefit Burkes ville and Cumberland county in general as this one would Adair county pro poses to build the pike from Columbia to our county line near Breeding pro viding Cumberland county will build from Burkesville to that point Co lumbia desires a good road outlet to the river Burkesville is equally desirous ot- a good road outlet to the railroad Could any thing serve the interests of all parties as much as the proposed pike Could we hope for an opportunity to get the long desired outlet to the railroad at as small an outlay as this offers We now have three miles of pike that with a small expense could be made firstclass and the gravel for the remaining eleven miles is in easy reach of the proposed route At no place would it need to be hauled futher than one hundred yards the road is comparatively level until Big Renox hill is reached and the material for the road over that can be secured on the hill A pike to Glasgow is out of the question The expense of building a good road over the many hills and along Marrowbone creek would be greater than this county could afford at this time We can afford the pike to Co lumbia and the question is now up to the people Do you wont it Tbe proposition has been taken up by the Commercial Club of this place A Com mittee has been appointed to confer with a committee from the Commercial Club of Columbia and as soon as the weather will permit the committee from this place will go to Columbia at which time some definite plan wil be adopted for raising the necessary funds for the completion of the road Thing it over Talk it over It would mean Several hours nearer the railroad and the outside world Competition for freight rates Goods cheaper for Burkesville Less expense to move our products during the No water season A trip to the railroad would be a pleasure instead of tortureCumberl- and County News LISLETAYLOR Miss Adaline Dorothy Lisle and Mr Ernest William Taylor of Cleveland Ohio were quietly married at the home of the brides

Entered at the Columbia Poatoffice as second clay mail matter WED FEB 13 1907 It is with no ill will toward the III committee and certainly not to ward any aspirant that we make the following statement concerning the recent action of the Dem ocratic committee in calling a primary to determine who shall make the race for Railroad Com missioner in this district next t November but if possible to throw light on the trend of action headed toward disorganization and disintegration as we see it There has never been a time when we have stood for or en dorsed a primary not because the voice of the people should not be expressed or heeded in the F making of our ticket but because of it placing position and office on the market and beyond the reach of men of moderate means and the further fact that it di vides and weakens our party and tends to entrench and perpetuatet those who have a pull and the cash It shuts the door o f hope in the face of worthy and competent men who would as pire to positon of honor and trust It fails to give a fair and honest verdict because money is used to secure results at the polls It rarely ever fails to work up bit terness in the rank and file of the party and reduces our fighting ability and enthusiasm against the common enemy In fact and in I truth there is no necessity for a primary from a party stand point and the public good is not in the least advanced It is purely and simply a modern method of hood winking the voters to advance the interests of a few politicians who can see their way into office by such a course It fails to rec ognize ability and fitness unless backed by a small fortune In this district are men eminently qualified to flu the position of Railroad Commisioner with credit to their party and justice toall

ewest Styles j interests but are barred from en tering the race in their own party on account of the fee re quired to pay the expenses of the primary It will require 6000 to conduct the primary and the call means that the two candi dates announced must foot up 3000 each to get a nomination for a 3000 position We under stand that one candidate was for primary while the other sought a convention or some open and inexpensive method Be that as it may let anv individua- gO down rather than cripple and destroy our party is the position we take Up with the man and not the money Speak in the open and not behind closed doors Resurect Democratic methods and put aside political chicanery give every man a chance in a free country and a Democratic organization The recent State primary lost us three Congress men it brought division that may yet be costly an dye t in the face of these bitter cam paigns and evidences of decay we keep up the same methods and truckle to the demands of a few polititions who seek a clear trackregardless of the welfare of our party If the committee cant see the fatal consequences of placeing an embargo on intelligent worthy but not wealthy aspirants then we are losing prestige It is the duty of com mittees to act for the good of their party and not for any cer tain friend or member of it and if party action can only encour depasitIof time when it will be defeated and in justice to the public good ought to be We believe in an open field a fair chance an in expensive expression of Dem ocrats in selecting our nominees This can be secured by a delegated convention giving everyII aspirant his full would be better to bury the prima ry and have a little wire pulling in convention rather than keep adding fuel to the flame that has already been kindled In justice to all concerned and with no ax to grind but aiming only at good party service we cant see any good to come under present methods Throughout the entire country the people are up against the sale and use of whiskey and we are glad to see such a great awakening and especially in Kentucky The fight against legal izing its sale is on in earnest and BOOTS SHOES Heavy boots and shoes for every day wear also the nicest assortment of Gents Ladies and Childrens fine shoes we have ever offered to the public See our special for children R other is backed in every instance by those who see its horrors and who wish to make our citizenship ideal Middlesboro is the only town in the eleventh district that failed to vote it out and there are doubts as to whether the wets won by fair means in that place The majority was a bare one and litis charged that the saloon peo secured illegal votes In every instance where a fight has been made the only pleas to justify the saloons are that liquor will be bootlegged and give more trouble than saloons and the sa loons pay a large part of the town tax In every fight yet to be made the same pleas will be en teredoIn a town or community where its sale is prohibited the people depend on other resources for revenue and know but little disarIdelenue derived from the saloons is consumed in maintaining a police force in prosecuting the unfortunate and contributing to destitution There is not a singl- lea to sustain the sale of intoxi cating drinks Its sale is a business and one that brings harm rather than good It lowers the the grade of citizenship destroys brighestIcurse that confronts any commu nity and yet there are those whO may listen to the men who are tawnI iness that is destroying its man hood wrecking homes and bringing misery simply because a few men want to make money out of its sale Lebanon is our nearest town that legalizes its sale but in March a vote will be taken to as certain whether or not it will con tinue to do so There is one thing favorable to those against the saloon business in Lebanon and that is that only 200 tax is required and while they have nine saloons the revenue loss would not be but 1800 a sum too small to consider in the af fairs of such a progressive city We trust that the good work will proceed until Kentucky will rank as high in moral standing as it has heretofore stood in the manufacture and sale of whiskeyy Campbellsville is surely awak ening to her many opportunities and taking on new life and energy which will demonstrate to other towns the worth of united and

their town council composed of progressive young men The town elected a council as above indicated and immediately after its organiza tion the decree to build side walks was issued Like all other places the council received much criti cism but unlike many other boards it kept the good work moving until every part of the town had been lifted from mud and the voice of the grumbler ceased or changed to praise The Council won its first battle it started the machinery that will result in making Campbellsville lane of the most progressive nextestep was won an electric light plant and on they go A short time ago a Commercial Club was organized and through it a woolen mill and pants factory with a cap ital of 200000 has been secured Negotiations are on for other industries and the Club is
