9Jr i BRYAN S FRIENDS HIGHLY ELATED The iSiipporteES of the nomination of Bryan for the president are considerably encouraged by the reports of Republican defec tions from Taft in theEast One of the strongest cotton men in Wall street a Jife long- Republican stated in a confident ial way to friends here today that he knew of a number of in iluential Republicans inNew York who had made up their minds to break away from the party in the event the Chicago convention nominated either Taft or Roosevelt and to vote for Bryan This dissatisfaction he said was not confined to the city of New York but was general advancedbusiness interests of the country could afford to risk Bryan with a republican senate as a bulward against any revolutionary pro gramme he might propose rather than take chances with Taft as the exponent of Rooseveltism or with Roosevelthirpself The Bryan men are also elated at the significant editorial in the New York Sun of yesterday in which the state New of York was represented as sure to go for Bryan as against Taft or Roosevelt In the same editorial pre ference was expressed for Bryan over Taft or Roosevelt The Sun has been the mostI pajpersday when it surprised ers by prophesying his electionI BUGGIES f 4Jilt st WORKING WOMAN AND THE BALLOT But if both for their own sakes and for the good of the republic women of property and women of education should be enfranchised writes Jane Addams in the April Womans Home Companion far more is the power of the ballot needed by the working woman whose stake in the country is represented by her life her health her virtue and the safety and happiness of her children The ballot is not demanded for her because she is good or wise or because she will make no mistakes in its use Neither goodness nor wisdom in is the sole possessionof one class and freedom from mistakes is the privilege of none Working women need the ballot because they must possess some control over the conditions of their lives and those of their children and in this twentiethcentury world the ballot box offers the only channel through which they cant give expression to such legitimate control r CLEVER COMMENT p- v A New

part of Boyle county was the victum of a peculiar accident Mr iValdenroct was preparing to move to an adjoining farm which he had purchased and after loading his householdeffect into a wagon told his driver ahead while he remained behind to fire off a bellmouth blunderuss inherited from a long line o Teutonic ancestors Owing to the roughness of the roads Mr Valdenroot did not consider it safe to carry the loadedweapon on the wagon After proceeding a short distance down the road the boy halted soon to hear th dull boom of the charge A length growing anxious over the tardy return of the parent young Valdenroot tied his horses and walked back to the house On the porch he found the prostrate form of his father writhing in pain A nasty cut had bared his forehead and frag ments of the exploded gun littered the yard A doctor was summonedand the wounds were dressed Mr Valdenroot is no able to sit up and barring a ba scar will be none the worse for the accident Near a stump in the yard neighbors found the powderburned and mangled form of a black snake From the fact that the gun had been stored in the attic since last summer it is believed that the reptile crawled into the barrel during the winter to hilbernate and that its presence there was the obstruc tion which occasioned theburst ing of the weapon JAMESTOWN KY LThe writer has just closed a- very successful meeting at the

the Columbia Postoffice as second clan mail matter WED APRIL 22 1908 The friends of Governor Johnson are now active in pushing his candidacy for the Democratic nomination for the Presidency but in the face of his willingness to make the race and recognizing him asa man true to the bearings of the country with ability to successfully conduct the affairs of the government yet we cannot accept their claims that he is the most available man We do not believe him to be the strongest man before the people We do not believe him the best qualified to meet the necessities of the general government or to lead us out of the wilderness The man among men is W J 3ryanand in our judgment logical candidate for the the1 and the one who is able to r November His ability is not his Democracy untarnished and his fight for bet ter political living is older than that of any other public man in the entire country There is not a single reason why we should prefer Gov Johnson orlisten to the sentiment of New York and Maryland in favor of an eastern i inaneNo man not in keeping with the demands of the people can win and while our party has Yseveral equal to the emergency yetthey have not been to the t front like Mr Bryan Mr Bry J an can win and probably Mr Gray or Mr Johnson but for twelve years our leader has been under fire of criticism from mem bers of his own party and censure and abuse from

difference between a patriot and a politician a statesman and a demagoue is not hard to understand but may in many instances be difficult to deter mine The wellbeing the per peturity of our government rests f only in the ability and patriot ism of the people and its great besettingrsins of its partisan politicians who have unholy ambition to be placated before the world Pat riotism coupled with

the galling yoke of oppres sive political measures and the future clouded with fears and doubts it is high time that the people look well to the personal makeup of the would be rulers The man who
