It is not here meant to enter any long defense of the present administration, its policies or an explanation of the war tax, for no intelligent person needs to be told. The fact is that this country nor President Wilson's administration is not responsible for conditions now existing, did not create them, just met them as they were imported. Civilization Ins never been so seriously menaced by war, business throughout the world has never been so crippled. The people know these statements to be true. This country did not shut out the products of other countries from which it collects revenues, but under the present administration offered extra inducements. The imports fail to come because of the European war, hence the government's revenues are not sufficient to meet current expenses. The necessity for the war tax is plain, and no patriotic citizen should seek to make political capital out of it. Under President McKin-lea Republican, and under a high protective tariff, with only a little skirmish of our own, a war tax was so made and used as to tax every person who gave a check to pay a debt and every one who gave a note to close an account. The war tax critics ought to consider the record of their own party under the electrifying expects of a high tariff. Criticism now is mere bosh. y, required a double rig to bring it in.

Ad War Revenue Tax of $105,000,000 Levied Beer Bears Brunt of Burden. J. C. YATES In Belgium. Daily Congress has levied a war tax of a similar amount of loss on import revenue due to the European disturbances and of this amount beer is the heaviest contributor, having been assessed approximately $50,000,000; a stamp tax on negotiable instruments, it is estimated, will yield $31,000,000; a tax on the capital stock of banks of $4,300,000 and a tax on tobacco, perfumes, theater tickets, etc., makes the remainder. Congress has decreed that the brewer, the banker and the investor must shoulder the musket and march to the front; that milady who would add to her beauty must first tip Uncle Sam, and a dollar that seeks pleasure must first salute the flag; that Pleas-Tir- e and Profit the twin heroes of many wars shall fight the nation's Rattles and by an ingeniously arranged schedule of taxation congress has shifted the war budget from the shoulders of Necessity to those of Choice and Gain, touching in its various ramifications almost every line of business. All hail the dollar that bleeds for Its country; that bares its breast to the fortunes of war and risks its life to preserve the stability and integrity of the nation's credit. The market place has always been a favorite stand for war revenue collectors. The trader is a great financial patriot His dollar is the first to Tally around the banner and the, last to hear the coo of the dove of peace. He is called upon to huy cannon; to feed and clothe the boys in blue and each month cheer their hearts with the coin of the realm. Men can neither be free nor hrave without food ahd ammunition, and moaey is as important a factor in war as blood. Many monuments have been erected in honor of heroes slain in battles, poems have been written eulogizing their noble deeds and the nation honors its soldiers while they live and places a monument upon their graves when they die, but very little has been said of the dollar that bears the burdens of war. Honor to the Dollar that Bears the Burdens of War. All honor to the dollar that answers the call to arms and, when the battle is over, bandages the wounds of stricken soldiers, lays a wreath upon the graves of fallen heroes and cares for the widows and 5105,000,000 to offset star-spangle- Terrible Situation Courier Journal lay it aside.

" 'V? THE ADAIR COUNTY NEWS l 5E PROGRESS FROM DAY TO DAY. Lorctto, Ky. YP The German line that stretches across France for more than '200 miles is said by the French War Office to be giving way before "the attacks of the Allies. The official statement from Berlin today gives few details of the fighting in France, although asserting that the Allies in one instance were repulsed with heavy losses. The French announcement says that the Allies have prosecuted the offensive successfully at points scattered much of the way across the country. Specific mention is made of the capture of trenches, of victories in artillery duels and of advances of 200 to 600 yards. These onslaughts have led to spirited counter attacks by the Germans, who yesterday are said to have made no less than, six of these attempts in the Argonne. The German statement is confined, so far as the fighting in the West is concerned, to a reference to the conflict in the Argonne, where it is stated an attack of the French was repulsed. The German Military authorities say that in the East the advance along the Vistula river is being continued and that a small Polish town has been captured. As to the campaign in Southern Poland where, according to unofficial advices from Berlin, the Russian wings have been thrown back, the War Office statement merely says that the attacks of the enemy were repulsed. To the North in East Prussia, the fighting has diminished in intensity, apparently pending the outcome of the main battle to the West of Warsaw. In the Northern region, says the German War Office, only artillery encounters are taking place. The naval battle in the South Atlantic and the illness of Emfrom the great struggles peror William diverted attention now in progress in Belgium, France and Poland. The fate of the small German cruisers Dresden and Nurnberg, which at last accounts were being pursued by British warships, had not been disto-da- y closed.
