choice time for shade tree planting It israre this amaple or an elm or ash planted at that seAson fails to grow all fine hardy shade trees While Columbia has a great many fine shade trees she is badly in need of more So many new homes have been built in the last two or three years and a number of them have been neglected in the way of planting out shade trees a thing that adds so much to the comfort and beauty of homes You cannot make a handsome home in a country town without nice shade trees You may build a handsome uptodate house paint it nicely and in good taste yet you must have grassland trees to complete the appearance of a home and make it comfortable and attractive t The shades along the side walks rather where walks should be have in a majority of the tbwn been over looked Do you remember during tIE hot days of the past summer after passing over one of those long stretch es along our streets where there is no shade trees how you dodged into thg shadow of the first little tree you could reach that some thoughtful person had planted along the walk in front of their property It would not be a big job for every property owner to plant a tree at say 40 feet apart in front of their property some hardy forest trees they are both comfortable and attractive afid really ads to the value of property and the general appearance of the streets and homes Was your at tention ever called to a place as a nice home where no trees were growing No I guess not and not likely to ever be Suitable trees can be found near town in great numbers but if you pre fer you can buy from Hillemner Sons at Lexington at a small price Dont plant trees too small larger ones grow just as well and not so much danger of being injured and make shade so much sopnejr Study this matter andLbe lei andvwhen you do so your neighbor will do the same and by that means we will soon have shady walks from one end of town toHhe other and not only will it add so much to our comfort but we will be envied by every town in the state that is not uptodate on shade trees Think of the nice shade along C R Payne s and Mrs Mary Garnetts fence in front of the Christian Church and the Page property Jo Nat Con overs and Dr Taylors the Hancock Hotel in front of Mrs Eubanks and Mrs Millers property and Mrs Mag Smiths property and a few more places and watch how they are sought on a hot summer day when you never see anyone take the other side of the street A Citizen A CARD OF THANKS IVe take the privilege to thank our and friends for their charity and good will shown our brother and

v Nebraskan In the Success of the Democratic Party In Kentucky This Years Says Campaign In This State Has an Important Bearing Upon the Success of Principles In Which He Is Interested Influence on National Politics of a Victory In State of Kentucky Can not Be Ignored by Voters Louisville roy Oct 17Address Ing 60000 persons gathered at sixteen cities and towns In western and southwestern Kentucky William J Bryan the greatest living exponent of the principles of Democracy urged upon his hearers and all other patri otic Kentuckians that they go to the polls on election day Tuesday Nov 5 next and cast their votes in sup port of the splendid state ticket head ed by Judge S W Hager Democratic candidate for governor and for legislative candidates who will In the general assembly of 1908 cast their votes for Governor J C W Beckham for a seat in the senate of the United States as the successor of Senator McCrearyMr speeches were devoted largely toa discussion of national I Issues but in presenting the views which he holds and which are dear to hundreds of thousands of Democrats f the country over he dwelt at con t siderable length upon the influence hfwhlch a Democratic victory in the nRYANLl state of Kentucky this year will have on national politics He declared it would be an influence that Democrats cannot Ignore as It would be herald ed as the first gun to be fired In the celebration of a great national vie tory In presenting Democratic doc trines and urging Democrats of Ken tucky to rally to the support of the state candidates of the party Mr Bryan spoke as follows I am down In your campaign thp year because believe that It has an important bearing upon the success of the principles In which I feel deep ly interested know the men who have been nominated for several of your offices and am Interested In them but I am Interested even more In the principles for which they stand I I am interested In national politics as state politics has its influence upon national politics and want to give you two reasons why f believe that every Democrat should be outsat the polls this year and vote the Democrat ic ticket from top to bottom In the first place Kentucky is one f of our Democratic states and I do not want us to have to enter a na tional campaign handicapped by Re publican victory in the state of Ken Lucky There Is no local reason why you should turn down an administra 1t1on that has administered the gov ernment economically and in your In terest If you want to find a cqntrast between a state administration that Is Democratic and a state administra tion that is Republican you can go Into the states where the Democrats control like the state of Missouri for Instance and compare the expense of the government in the administra tion of the state affairs with the ad ministration in states which Republi compareM1ssourl Pennsylvania a Republican state and you can understand the difference be Cweeri the two kinds of administra tion It in natural that the Democrats inwhd JSe more economical than Re UmbicaiM because Democrats teach fr lYat taxation is a nceaui avif to tut i110 iA norne only so far as is necessary for the support of the government Whereas the Republican party has for quarter of a century taught the doc fiifhave to do is to increase their taxes In order to lighten their burden anp Increase their blessings It is nat ural that those who believe that taxation is a necessary evil should limit It and restrict It as much as possible and it is perfectly natural that those who in national politics teach that i tariff is a blessing to the people should give them as much of this blessing as possible when they have a chance to administer the offices Then there is this difference be tween the way the Democrat looks At things and the way the Republican looks at things When I say Republi can I do not mean the average Re publican who votes for the average Republican who votes has mighty little influence upon the average Re publican who holds high office There Is a wide difference between the rank and file of the Republican party and the Republican leaders The average Republican is like the average Democrat But the high Re publican looks at society from an en tirely different standpoint The Dem ocrat believes that prosperity works up from the people and the leading Republicans of this country believe that prosperity drips down leaks down from the higher classes and therefore when they come to consider policies the Democrat and the av erage Republican want policies for the whole people while the leading Republicans insist that If you legislate for the welltodo they will take care of the poor It is natural that looking at govern ment and society from these different standpoints that the Democrats would more carefully guard the interests of the common people than those in charge of the administration under Republican authority I say this in regard to the general admin istration and I think you will find it true if you will compare your admin istration under Democrats with the administration of states which are un der Republican rule But my friends the influence that your election will have on national politics is an influence that Democrats cannot ignore If your state were to cast Its vote for the Republican party you would find that all over the nation it would be heralded as the beginning of Republican victory in the nation while if in your state you do as they did in Oklahoma it will be her aided abroad as the first gun to be fired in the celebration of a great national victory Out in Oklahoma they rolled upa majority of nearly 100000 in favor of a constitution written by a constitu tional convention that was ninetenths Democratic Ninetenths is a pretty good ratio and we cannot ask much more for our dollars whether gold or silver have about ten per cent alloy and ninetenths pure is consid ered a very fair ratio even In money and out in Oklahoma they had a con stitutional convention that was nine tenths pure and it wrote a constitu tion that was so good that all the Democrats voted for it and a large per cent of the Republicans and the victory In Oklahoma gives us not only that indication of the trend of public sentiment but it gives us two Demo cratic senators and five Democratic members of congress and I am down here because I want you to give en couragement to the Democrats of this state who are fighting for better gov ernment and by your election this fall you will not only determine your state officers and put either the Dem ocratic ticket with Judge Hager at the head or a Republican ticket in office here but you will also elect a United States senator and that sen ator will hold for six years He will hold through the next administration and two years into the administra tion succeeds it We need Democratic senators In the next administration for the United States senate is the governmentrepresentatives there of corpor ate wealth that we need in the United States senate Demo crats to the core who like Gov ernor Beckham will stand for the rights of the people and though i live in Nebraska I am interested in the senator elect ed from Kentucky for before we can secure any remedial relief in any direction of a national character it must pass through the United States senate I No relief ola national character needed by the people of Nebraska can be secured until it goes through the senate and therefore the farms of my state area Interested like the pea pie of your state In having senators there who will listen to the vOIce of thecommonI people and not receive their instructions from the great trusts and the railroad systems of the country v Arid now my friaads let nee flY i 7 I 1Fg you some reasons why Democrats should take courage at the situation which now presents itself I think that no one in this country has en joyed himself more than I have dur ing the last two years For now something like seventeen years J have been laboring in behalf of certain re forms and those reforms are dearer to me than anything else of a politi cal nature that my country can give I have watched the growth of these reforms as day by day they have developed and just as the farmer goes out and rejoices in the growth and development of the crop on his farm I have watched with delight the growth and development of these reforms and in the last two years I have seen these reforms vindicated not only by events but even by the con fessions of Republicans and these reforms have at last grown so strong that they have compelled a Republi can president to acknowledge the need of leveral other reforms for which we have been contending and others will compel the acknowledgment of Republicans before long Let me give you four of these re forms that have become so strong that a Republican president has ad witted the correctness of our posi tion Take In the first place the en forcement of the law against the trusts What a time we have had convincing some of the people that the trusts are an evil I remember that In our fight on this subject there were lots of Republicans who were deluded with the idea that about all the good that this country enjoys has come in some way mysteriously from the trusts and whenever we said any thing in regard to the Standard 011 trust there was always some Republi can who would stand on the street corners and tell us that it was the Standard Oil trust that had cheapened the price of oil But there is not a Republican now to make that ar gument even in a back alley There were many who thought that these great trusts were beneficent in stitutions and they were praising them as if all blessings flowed from them but my friends in the last few years they have come to believe as Democrats have long insisted that the penitentiary is not too good a place for the trust magnate who con spires against the welfare of 80000 000 people and this sentiment has grown so strong that not only does the president say that the enforce ment of the criminal law would be a good thing but as an illustration of the vast growthof the tremendous Increase of this sentiment even Secretary Tafteven Secretary Taft laughterhas reached the point where he now admits t it might be a good thing to put onVor two trust magnates in the penitentiary While they will admit that it might be good to put one or two in the rest of the people will go far enough to believe that all of them should be put in So that when the president takes an ad vanced position on the trust question he steps on Democratic ground The people praise him for what he has done in the matter of railroad regulation but where did he get his inspiration In a Republican platform You read in vain the Republi can national platform to find it there and if you look in that hated and despised Chicago platform you will find the authority for railroad regulation that the president has at last accepted If you look In the platform of 190 0 written at Kansas City you will find it again and even at St Louis while we quarreled over a good many questions we wrote that plank Into that platform and it was our third national platform that demanded this reform and when the president stepped out and advocated this he had to step onto Democratic ground But let no Republican find fault with the president because he stands on Democratic ground on some of these questions for he could not go before you without entrenching on Democrat ic ground for we preempted all the ground in front several years ago Some pf the Democrats have even re sented the manner in which the president has endorsed some Democratic ideas but I do not resent it for our ideas were presented to the public II for adoption and our ideas are good enough to be adopted not only by Democrats but by Republicans and my regret ls not that the president has adopted some ofo them my regret is that he has not adopted more and that he has not carried the conclusions that he has adopted fur ther When I think of the president and some of the Democratic things he has done I am reminded of some thing said by Peter Cartwright A man asked him if he was sanctified and he said Yes in spots and so my friends when they ask me about the president whether he is Demo cratic or not I say Yes In spots but that the are not large enough and riot numerous ehough Take the subject of the Income tax and the president has endorsed our position I can remember a few years ago when the income tic was denounced by Republicans and denounced most bitterly and I am glad to speak of that income taxwhere J come In contact with Mr Monteom i r 1 r itr ery who was on the ways and meanf committee and who was on the subcommittee that helped to draft that income tax I happened to beon that subcommittee with him and I look back to my part in that income tax with as much pride as I take In any act In my public career and I rejoice that now some twelve years after the Democratic party fought for it a Republican president comes up and admits that It Is a good thing and we ought tq have it in this country and even Secretary Tafteven Secretary Taftadmits that It is a good thing only yielding to his postponing habit of mind he thinks we ought not to have it right away So you take the question of arbitration between capital and labora po sition taken by the Democrats in 1896 1900 and 1904and the president en dorses that position today On four great propositions he has accepted Democratic doctrine and yet on some questions has not only not ticcepted Democratic doctrine but has advanced very unDemocratic doc trine He has not yet agreed with us is to the importance of tariff reform although Secretary Taftyes even Secretary Tafthas made an argument against a high tariff and would have tariff reform after a while But my friends the president has endorsed a ship subsidy and when he endorsed a thing not Democratic he found fortyone Republicans in the lower house who refused to vote with him and voted with the Democrats against a ship subsidy He endorsed an asset currency and yet the Republicans In congress were afraid to pre sent It even to the lower house but agreed with the Democrats against an asset currency even as an emer gency currency that they dared not present it as a bill and act upon it in the house of representatives Then the president asserted the doctrine that a treaty can override the laws of a state in regard to their school system If I had gone to Cali fornia and made an argument in de fense of the right of the state to control Its affairs if I had gone there two years ago I could not have made the people to understand the importance of the question but the moment the right of these people to control their school system was attacked then all the Republicans of California became Democrats on the subject of school control and now the president has proposed the national incorporation of railroads and other great corpora tions and my friends as long as the American people understand that the purpose of the national incorpor ations is to take out of the hands of the people of the state the control of their state affair and carry that con trol to Washington and place it down there where it Is almost impossible to reach your representatives there will be a revulsion of feeling against that doctrine as against the doctrine announced in California and you will find the American people Republican as well as Demoorats lining upin behalf of the doctrine set forth In the constitution that while congress is supreme in the affairs of interstate commerce the state is supreme in the control of the things that concern its own people and its own people alone So that where the president has been Democratic he has gained popularity and where he has been unDemocratic he has lost popularity and thus by his good deeds and by his bad ones ho has proven the strength of Democratic ideas in this coun try If any of you think that the Repub licans ever won a victory In the last twelve years I want to remind you that after twelve years of complete Id power after rather eleven during which they have had the president senate and the house they have never been able to impress upon thistry one single Republican idea There is not one Republican doctrine today that is as strong as It was eleven years ago That is the result of eleven years of Republican supremacy in the United States and the Demo cratic party out of power has been so strong that it can coerce a Republj can president Into the acceptance of Democratic ideas as a basis of his popularity Now my friend if this is true is it not a bad time for h the Democrats of Kentucky to become Pepublicans Is this not U the time when their faith In r V Democracy should be strengths ened rather than weakened Iskthis not the time when their hope should be increased rather than diminished Is this not i look into the faces of those who In tHe campaigns through which I have passed have bgen faithful to the plat form on which I stood and I come here to ask you to be as enthusiastic in your efforts this fall as you were when I was your standard bearer If there is in this audience one who has been attached to me let me beg him to transfer to Judge Hager and those on the ticket with Mm and to Gov ernor Beckham the full measure of that attachment My friends I shall not spend time telling you what splen did men these candidates are I am satisfied that they deserve your sup port and that they will ornament the positions to which they aspire I shall not dwell upon matters of state Importance for I cannot knew these things as well as your own speakers All that I can do is to come from a distant state to bear testimony in your presence to the national charac ter of your campaign If ai y Democrat here thinks it concerns but this state whether one or another is elect ed governor let me say to him that the influence of your election will reach to the very borders of the land for as we approach a national cam paign all the things that precede give indication as to the result of that campaign and as the Democrats re joiced at the election in Oklahomabe cause it indicated a trend of public sentiment toward Democracy so a great victory for our state ticket In Kentucky will gladden the hearts of millions of Democrats for it will pres age a victory in Kentucky for Demdc Continued on 3rd Page f His Dear Old Mother My dear old mother who is now leighty three years old thrives on

majdrity If today your love L of Democracy is as warm as it was forliHager and Is fall And my friends the election for senator has a double signifi cance A victory for Democ t racy in your state legislature z like a victory for your state- ticket would be an inspiration to Democrats elsewhere but jt would be more than that It would send to the United States senate a Democrat and we need Democrats there We not only need Democrats there but we cannot afford to lose any of the Democrats that we have Today two Democrats represent senateithey would send a Republican as suc cessor to Senator McCreary and my friends ifa Republican went there in the place of that Democrat then your state instead of presenting two votes in favor of reform would have theivote of senator your state would be a cipher on these questions The senate is today the weak point We need reform but no remedial legislation of a national character is possible until the meas theCa president and a Democratic house of representatives anxious to relieve the burdens upon the people and the pres ident may be ready to sign the bill but if the senate stands between them relief is impossible and my friends I beg you to so cast your votes as to insure a Democratic legislature for that will Insure the election of Gov ernor Beckham to the United States senate urNow I have given you my reason for being here I am interested in national politics I have been for many years and shall be until I die My great desire is to see these re forms for which I in company with other Democrats have been fighting realized for I believe they will bring blessings untold to the American people and 1 come from a distant state to give you what assistance I can because Lam interested in these questions AmI more interested than you Have I any more reason than you Democrats I know of no reason that I have to make me anxious for reform that ought not to make you anxious for reform too I am as well situated as you are I can stand Republican legislation as well as you can I can live under bad government as well as you can live I can pro vide for my children no matter what gthemhave left to them I have no favors to ask of anyone but my friends I want to leave my children something better than money Money may take the wings of the morning and fly away I want to leave them some thing more enduring than persona property or real estate I want Jco leave them a government that will protect them in the enjoyment of life and liberty and in the pursuit of hap piness That Is the richest legacy that father can leave the child But there is no more reason why 1 should leave my children good gov ernment than that you phould leave your children good government and there is no more reason why I should fight for Democracy than there is that you should fight for Democracy My Interest is not due to the fact that I have been a candidate for high office My interest is not due to the fact that I may be a candidate for high office in the future for office is but an Incident of my Jife and there are things which concern me more I have never wanted office merely to hold office for I have long since learned that my place in historywill not be determined by what people do for me but by what I can do for my people I have said this much be cause wanted to impress upon your minds that you ought to be as much interested as lam In this fight and now Democrats If1 will come from Ne braska at my own expense to help you win a victory in Ken tucky for Democracy cant you go from your homes to your polls on election day and do your part toward winning that victory What excuse can you give your conscience or your neighbors if on election day yout remain away from the polls WJiat excuse can you give to your conJKfence or your country If by any neglectof yours these principles Which you hold dear are defeated and simply through your failure to do what you cant Is It not worth your- swhile to Tote ryourseIT and then do what you on toet your neighbors to Join with you to make your majority larger now than ever ben if fore1 I understand that you have so big a majority down here that when you get up in the morning and then hear that the country has gone Republican you cannot understand how any part of the country could go Republican as there are so many Democrats in this county but my friends strange as it may seem there are many peo pIe in many parts of this country and people who look much like you who have not the political information and the political intelligence that you show on election day and these peo ple by a strange perverseness of fate vote the Republican ticket And I happen to live in one of those com munities where a majority of the people do not seem to understand public questions and whenever there is a campaign on hand we generally have a meeting in the city of Lincoln and I make a speech to my Republican neighbors and try to seize them as brands from the burning and bring them within the fold of the elect and last fall when the time came for that meeting I announced that my subject would be Dreams We had had Senator Beveridge there Nand he had made a Republican speech and in that speech he told them that while 1 was a very nice man and while he thought a great deal of me that I was not a doer of things but just a dream er and that while I dreamed the pres- Ident was doing things and It was printed in the paper and Iread it but I did not think much of it I didnt pay much attention to it but in a few days I read in the paper that Governor Cummings of Iowa had made a speech and called me a dreamer When I saw that a second one had called me a dreamer 1 sat up and took notice and in a few days I read that Gover nor Hanlyhad called me adreamer three of them It began to look seri ous and then I read that Speaker Cannon had called me a dreamer four of them and 1 knew that my word would not amount to much Against four great men and so instead of denying it I decided to admit it and justify It and I began to read up on the subject of dreams I thought I would post myself and find out what I really was or whether It was a disgraceful thing or not and I found to my surprise that the subject of dreams was really quite ta subject after all and that there had beenI dreamers before I went to the BibleI where I always go when I am in trou ble I have never found a book with so much truth In It as the Bible conI tains and I dont know of any bo01j where truth is more beautifully ex pressed and I looked in the Bible to see if I could find anything about the dreamer and I found that there were dreamers in the Bible and that the most prominent one was Joseph andJ because Josephs brothers called him a dreamer and they did not like his dreams they hated him They plot ted to kill him and when he was sent out by his father to his brethren who had their flocks in Dothan they said Here comes the dreamer let us put him away and be done with him But finally they decided that instead of killing him they would just put him down in a pit and let the father believe that he had been killed in some way by a wild beast Then some mer chants came along and they took Joseph out of the pit and sold him and sent him down into Egypt and then they congratulated themselves and said Now we are rid of the dreamer and things went along for awhile until they had almost forgot ten Joseph and then there came a famine and they had to go down into Egypt sand buy corn and when they got to Egypt there they found the dreamer and he had the corn and so my friends I made up my mind it was not so bad to be a dreamer provided you have the corn and in that speech I proceeded to show the Republicans how the Democratic party had been dreaming and how they had the corn and were prepared to satisfy all political needs The more I thought on this s bjectE the less willing I was to class myself with the dreamers for it was too high and honored for me The dreamer why he is a great man John Boyle OReilly says that the dreamer lives forever while the toiler dies in a day As went from nation to na tlon In traveling through Eu rope found that everywhere the ideas of Jefferson had been conveyed and that everywhere they were planted and were growing When left home was proud of the Democratic party I boasted that I beIlonged to a party that was sentially old but when got back from my trip around the world was prouder still for this old Democratic party that Jefferson founded is not only af century old but It is 25000 miles Wide I am proud of Jeffersons work Of all the constructive statesmen in the worlds history he is the greatest andmy friends when the nameatliat Republicans Jove to quote whe- nthosenamare forgotten little chUI dreg will lisp the name of Jefferson and freemen willvstand up and ra1Iithe one who taught them to low a j freemans rights and fight for thejm And now Democrats let me as you a question If a Republican pres ident can win popularity by spasmodically and sporadically doing some thing Democratic what would be the popularity of a Democratic president who was consistently and persistently Democratic an all questions Isnt this a bad time for a Democrat to become discouraged Never since I have known politics have we had sp much to encourage us In this state you have by organiza tion among the farmers been able to protect yourselves to some extent from the greed of one great monop oly but instead of feeling satisfied at the great success that has come to your organization I bid you have some feeling for those who are not so sit uated that they can protect them selves as you have been able to pro tect yourselves Have you not learned something of what a monopoly is and are you not ready now to join with us to lay the ax at the root of the tree and instead of saying as Secretary Taft said that there are good trusts and bad trusts are you not ready to say with us that God never made a man good enough to stand at the head of a private monopoly and control the price of what people had to use Is it not time that we seriously take up this question and put the American government back upon its old foundation and make it again a government of the people by the peo pIe and for the people Are you not ready to enlist in this contest I have been fighting for this principle now seventeen years and I ask for nothing better than I might continue this fight until God calls me from my earthly labors Are you willing to enlist not for three months or six months or a yearare you willing to enlist for this war until justice shall triumph and our nation shall be relieved While next year the fight will be on a larger field and the stakes will be greater now in this fight you are on the skirmish line and if you will but give us a splendid victory for Hager and his associates we shall rejoice with you and if you will give us a legislature that elects Beckham our rejoicing will be doubly great and I hope that when the polls are closed and the vote is counted you will have such a victory In Kentucky that weIcan hear your shouts all the way to Nebraska and then when we hear them we will be so glad that we will shout so loud that you can hear them Kentucky f COMMISSIONERS SALF t ADAIR CIRCUIT COURT OF KENTUCKY Ben T Evans Etc Plaintiff Wm H Evans Etc Defendant By virtue of a judgment and Order

Desired by Busi ness Men and Shippers of Kentucky His Splendid Record In view of the importance to all the people of theoffice of Railroad Commissioner attention is called to the opposition recently put forth against Hon C C McChord by the petition candidate Mr Lew Tarlton The democratic party nominated Mr McChord some months ago there after the executive committee of the republican party met and refused to give him opposition Nevertheless on the eveningof the very last day on which it could be done Mr Lew Tarlton in disregard of the wishes of his party as evidenced by the action of its executive committee filed a petition with the secretary of state and has forced his name upon the ballot as the republican candidate for Railroad Commissioner From the following comments from republican as well as democratic sources it seems that Mr Tarltons effort to thus obtain an office will undoubtedly fail FROM THE LOUISVILLE TIMES DEMOCRATIC Regardless ofpolitIcal affiliation business men of Louisville and Kentucky have indorsed the candidacy of Mr C C McChord and it is not believed in view of this fact that he would have opposition for reelection His services as chairman of the Kentucky Railroad Commission were recognized as being most valuable by the business men of the state and they tare de sirous of keeping him in the position where he can protect their interests against the railroads To this end a nonpartisan movement to indorse his candidacy swept through practically the whole state Some of the most valuable services that Mr McChord has rendered the business interests of Kentucky is his fight to compel the railroads to re duce the freight rates in Kentucky 25 per cent If this is done Mr McChord says that Louisville will then be placed on an equal footing with Cincinnati FROM THE LOUISVILLE HERALD REPUBLICAN f Charles C McChord was elected Railroad Commissioner ten years ago and was endorsed by the republicans of the state He has been a valiant cham pion of the people indeed at this moment we know of no public official Kentucky has to whom she could say with more candor Well done good and faithful servant Mr McChord has devoted the best part of his life to the cause of the people He has been a Staunch friend of Louisville merchants and manufac turers He has been able to meet corporate reed with strict interpretation of the law and in so doing has incurred corporate enmity The Herald holds rio brief for Mr McChord but it would be careless of the duty it owes the public if it did not do the simple act of justice to an honest official FROM THE COURIER JOURNAL DEMOCRATIC C C McChord chairman of the Kentucky Railroad Commission was elected president of the National Association of Railroad Commissioners at its annual meeting which has just adjourned after a four days session in Washington D C The honor came to Mr McChord unanimously While a large majority of the 125 delegates to the convention are republicans there was not a dissenting voice to his election Considerable surprise was manifested among the delegates over the fact that Mr McChord has opposition for reelection in Kentucky He has proved such an allaround capable officer his election to the presidency of the national convention testifying to the high regard in which he is held that it was taken for granted that the republicans in Kentucky fully indorsed his record FROM THE NEWS LEADER REPUBLICAN While the News Leader is republican in politics yet it never hesitates to call attention to and to commend the work of a public official when it deserves commendation We do not believe the people of Kentucky have the slightest idea of defeating Hon C C McChord for Railroad Commissioner Although he is the democratic nominee the regular governing authority of the re publican parts namely its executive committee same weeks ago refused to make a nomination against him thereby virtually endorsing his candi dacy he has therefore received the approval of thetwo great political parties The gentleman who has forced himself upon the republican ticket by petition has no claim upon the republican party for its support for the reason that he is not its nominee x RESOLUTIONS ADOPTED BY THE BOWLING GREEN BUSINESS MENS PROTECTIVE ASSOCIATION RESOLVED By the Bowling Green Busines Mens Protective Association FIRST That we recognize the fact that the proper regulation of rail road rates is now the most important question before the people of Kentucky as well as the people of the United States at large SECOND That the Bowling Green Business Mens Protective Association recognizes in the Hon C C McChord a faithful intelligent efficient and honest public official who has given great care and study to railroad regula tion and who has the courage to be just to the shippers and at same time just to the railroads THIRD That we appreciate the valuable services hey has already rendered the people of Kentucky in his present position and believe that if he is permitted to continue in such position the good accomplished is but a foretaste of the benefits of a Railroad Commission which is not content to be a mere sinecure but which undertakes to faithfully execute the duties required by law FOURTH We feel that the people of Kentucky could ill afford to lose the services of so able an expert as the Hon CC McChord just at this time tf when the qubstion of the re6ulaUonof railroad freightrates Is oa trial and the people ot his district are therefore urged tb stand loyally by him l isrhisfitt lor r ttocssr t t o
