problem It is not contingent on future events With two de feats to compromise him he is now the foremost man in the great historical party of this country and admitted so by the critics and doubters as well as the believers The man has the inherent quality of uccess He has a grasp on the realities that no public man of this generation has given such evidence of He knows the truth that his place in history will be determined not by what the people do for him but by what he does for the people He has at his disposal the nom ination of a great party for the first office of the world To at tain this position he has made no compromise or no sacrifice of principle He has thought that defeat was a less penalty than the loss of the least particle of selfrespect In au age of great wealth and its hebhas not had its backing A greater power though secondary because largely controlled by wealth the metropolitan press has been in the main againsthim It is a monument to the inher ent virtue of the age that Bryan stands so preeminently the lead ere Men and leaders that have been against him and have hunt ed high and low for leaders and issues to discredit or displace him have reluctantly had to ad waseahead of his ties in Iris radicalism put the times are moving faster and have caught up with him The devotion to truth and to the best interests of the peo pie and time for study and re flection and travel have ripened and seasoned his judgment but hfye not diminished the courage of the main or lessened his devotion to his ideals One of our leaders in the put l Lr r Y v has said that he would rather bright e than President The time has come when the only way to be President is to b right The man who made the above statement was not the only one in the country then feeling that way His very saying so made others fee so and such expressed sentiment has brought forth fruit one hundred foldand the man of the character and ability and courage of Bryan has added immensely to this crop of honesty a Bryan iso e of the men that has contributed te the fact that the time is on us when it is not only pleasant to be right but profitableMore impressive than his teaching has been the object les son he has furnished of the suc cess of honesty and courage E Town News STATE AID FOR ROADS The General Assembly which is shortly to convene will have no better opportunity of benefitting so many people in so substantial a way than by the enactment of good roads legislation The time is ripe for State Government owes nothing sections of the State few things are so badly needed as improvement on roads few things would mean so much toward general progress Daviess county is compraative ly fortunate in that it is possessed of such a measure of wealth as to be able to do something for itself along the line of construc tion of good roads but even Daviess county suffers miserbly now arid must for a great many years from the winding trails of mud known as dirt roads Dirt road is a synonym for bad roads for lost power in teaming for an incubus upon energy and enterprise and thrift State aid for good roads should be so given as to encourage industry and progress The county that is content to wallow in mud let it wallow in mud still To the county government that is listless to exert itself for better material thing the State admin istration the State Government owes nothing to give them ma terial aid were a case of casting pearls before swine But to the county that goes forward in the name of progress that lays out liberally of its sub stance in permannent improvements that sets resolutely about providing its own citizens with good roads over which its com merce may flow has a very real and very pressing claim on the government at Frankfort It is a matter of public

the member of the Legislature should give this matter of State aid for good roads consideratione J Owensboro Messenger OPEN THE BOOKS v There is one paragraph in Mr Bryans recent declaration in regard to the question of his nom ination for the Presidency next year that deserves wider atten tion and more earnest commendation than it has as yet rem ceived He says that no one should favor his nomination un less the Democratic party is will ing to open its books and show iwhere its contributions come from and for what the money is expendedNo could stand on higher ground than that so far as the question of contributions is concerned Any candidate who is willing that the sources of campaign revenue and the objects for which it has been dis bursed shall be made public in detail has freed himself completely from the taint of corrupt ing influence and is able to ad dress the voters and appeal for their support wholly upon those issues which involve public inter estsSuch a stand as this is of course not in itself a reason for his election but certainly it should compel all other candidates to put themselves upon a similar platform or it might con stitute such a reason Wall Street JournalI FRANKFORT WOMEN LAY BRICK To encourage enterprise and set the fair sex of Bell Point a worthy example a number of women headed by Mrs Nancy Johnson aged seventythree years went to the new brick building being erected by S W Howell and laid brick and carried the hod fcr half an hour says the Kentucky State Journal The purpose of this novel example was to show the young women in that section of the city that it does not bring dishonor to wemen even if they do manual labor and that they should not be ashamed to work if they are called upon to do it The esteemed old lady who headed the procession of women to handle the trowel and shoulder the hod is the venerable mother of Policeman Richard Johnson She is a typical combination of a lady of the old and new school An excellent housekeeper Mrs Johnson would be glad to show any of the young matrons in her section of the city how to keep house but she also desired to t show them that it should not be beneath them if they were called on to go out into the word to make an honorable living Mr i Howell was delighted to have T the ladies to christen his new building amonument to his own skill thrift and enterprise Louisville

a newspaper ina few years In many ways this expense has doubled and the outlook is that it will likely treble before another year rolls around Every article that is used in a newspaper has increased with the cost of printing the paper Blank paper which could be pur chased eighteen months ago for 145 per hundred cannot be had today forjessj than 345 and from a source in every way reli- t able it has been stated that it will be but a few months until it cannot be bought for less than 6 What are thejnewspapers to do1 I They are compelled to havepaper and there is but one company from whom they can obtain it Where thousands of pounds of i are required each year one may readily see how eatly this item of expense has increased The merchant increases his selling price when the cost price of his goods increases It is but ordi nary business sense th aJhe should Thus far the TIMES has not raised eits subscription rates as many papers over the state have been compelled to do nor has it increased its advertisin rates Neither does it intend to to increase either ifIt clnposi bly be helped but it does ask subscripttoins being paid promptly whe due If there should be any who do not longer wish

character and the stamina to perform the im portant work entrusted to him that his equestrian accomplishments or lack of them can with safety to the Republic be left out of the discussion And there is more than one laymen of his way of thinking Mr Roosevelt to the contrary Doubtless if the subject had been looked into there were quite a number of titled gentlemen who sailed proudly out of Hampton
