News-Democr- With this issue of t"he we are directed to announce the Hon. Robert L. Greene, of Frankfort, Franklin county, as a candidate for' the Democratic nomination for Auditor of Public Accounts, subject to the primary election August 7th. Bob Greene is entirely too well .known to the people of Kentucky to cause the necessity to arise for any extended introduction. He is now and has been since January 1, 1912, the clerk of the Court of Appeals of Kentucky, and prior to that time he was chief deputy clerk in the same office for twenty years and no more courteous and affable gentleman and no more efficient and honest official ever occupied a public place in Kentucky. Personally lovable, with every acquaintance a friend, as a public official thorough, efficient and honest and as a citizen upright, considerate and conservative, he possesses all the elements that could possibly go to make the kind of man worthy to occupy a position of so great importance as the one to which he aspires. " Mr. Greene has many friends in this end of the state, and during his visit this week to West Kentucky he is being given the glad hand on all sides. He has always received a big vote in this section of the state and in his race for Auditor he may rest assured that, as heretofore, he will receive strong support. Ad. C. S. Harris sold J. B.

Roads are the arteries of commerce. Good roads bring markets to producers, assist in disposing of products, stimulate neighborhood intercourse, invite travel and are of the greatest aid in the development of our State. I believe with "Woodrow Wilson, and, as stated in the 1911 Kentucky Democratic platform, that "temperance Is essentially a moral, and social question, and should not be made a partisan issue between political parties," and 1 approve the passage of the county unit law in compliance with the platform pledge of 1911. I am unalterably opposed to Statewide prohibition as undemocratic, unfair to an interest which, by the invitation of our laws, has so much money Invested in this business in Kentucky and which pays such a large proportion of the taxes of our State. I am not in favor of reducing our State to the pitiable condition of bankruptcy that exists in "West Virginia and Tennessee by driving this large source of revenue from the State. I do not believe that any general demand or sentiment exists in Kentucky for State-wid- e piohibition, but that this question has been forced on the voters by a few politicians in direct defiance of the mandates of the 1911 platform, hoping thereby to ride Into office and control of the State.

Before the prohibition law went into effect, 10 per cent of the revenues of the State were applied to paying olf the State debt, as provided by law, thereby rapidly discharging it. Sinc3 prohibition deprived the State of large revenues from taxes on the manufacturers of liquors and beer, the sinking fund law was suspended, and payments on the State debts stopped. The present Legislature found that ' there was a deficit in State revenues of 1,022,000.00. Short-timnotes have been given to cover that deficit, the same to be converted into bonds next July. This will increase the bonded indebtedness of the State to a total of 12,500,000.00. Taxes have been largely increased. The State Manufacturers' Association, in 1914, stated in its report on Taxation: -- e 30-ye- ar "There Is a tendency throughout the State to increase taxes on an already overburdened people, both. by constant increase of the assesjl ment as well as the rate." Since that report was made, the Legislature has passed a new Revenue and Assessment Act, Increasing many kinds of taxes from 40 to 100 per cent, the entire tax burden being nearlr twice what it was before prohibition, went into effect. In 190S, the year before State-wid- e prohibition was adopted, the cost of criminal prosecutiona' in Tennessee was $158,000.00. According to official figures submitted to the Legislature-thahas just adjourned, 342,000.00 was expended for criminal prosecutions last year. This shows an increase of nearly 100 per cent in crime in six years under prohibition. The city of Nashville recently issued bonds for 9S7,000.00 to cover a largely by the operation of the prohibition law. The other large cities of the State are in a similar financial condition, due to the same causes. In Tennessee, prohibition has not helped the taxpayer, nor has it improved moral conditions. Exactly has been the result. Large numbers of extra officeholders, ana greatly increased expenses for their support and for prosecuting violations of the law, are the main features of present conditions. g Blind tigers, bootleggers and have taken the place of lawful, regulated liquor traffic; there har been a steady increase in all crimes; moral standards have been lowered, defici-caused the-revers- e $60,000,000.00 annually is brought into Kentucky in bank clear$921,254.15 is the amount paid in taxes in Kentucky by the distilling and brewing industries in 1913, as given by statements from the State Auditor's office. This sum is more than the combined taxes paid on all the merchandise, coal mines, oil wells, live stock, agricultural products, and manufactured products in the State. State-wid- e prohibition will destroy entirely, for taxation purposes, these sources of revenue. Other property must then be taxed heavier to make up that loss. t $5,000.00; State militia fund, $65,000.00 a year; Repairs and improvements, State institutions, $5,000.00; Hotel Inspector, $1,562.50; Orphans Home Colored State (buildings and land), $3,000.00 a year; State Librarian, $500.00 a year; Point Pleasant monument, $2,500.00 a year; King's' Daughters and city hospitals, $10,000.00 a year; Factory inspectors, $4,000.00 a year.

What would be the advantage reMonday the 12th, with J. I. sulting from a good road to CumberEwing as teacher. land river? ' . event, it would be easier to maintain a good road than a bad one. "When counties have good roads they manage to keep them up, and find it profitable-to do so. There is no reason why we should be an exception. If any progress is made in road building it is just as easy to maintain the roads under a bond issue as by applying the annual taxes and State road fund to the construction of a small piece of road each year. The advantage is rather in favor of good roads at once, thus lessening the task of maintenance. "With a bond issue of 3125,000 what would be the ratio of the country's wealth to its indebtedness? It would be about the same as that of a man owning a ten thousand dollar farm contracting a debt of $250 to buy clover seed, or building a silo or barn. Didn't Green and Taylor counties get into trouble over a bond Issue? Yes, but the circumstances were very different from a bond issue under the road law. In the first place their issue was twice as large or more in each county as is proposed here In the second place, their bonds were issued and turned over to a corporation, which sold the bonds and collected the money. The counties had nothing to do with the sale of the bonds or the collection or expenditure of the money. They defaulted, and have had considerable trouble in their efforts to avoid payment but, so far, they have succeeded in their efforts. At the same time, Marion county, as we remember, issued bonds to the amount of $300,000 to the same road. Under wiser management, it created a sinking fund, paid its bonds, and while doing so built pikes in all parts of the county, the county contributing to their construction from &00 to$l,000j)er mile. Green and Taylor have certainly been very much benefited by the building of the road to the county seats. If we vote bonds, our issue would only be for S125.000. One-haof this with the accrued interest the State agrees to pay back to the county, so, we will in fact, put into the roads lf "" 362,500. This has bean the wettest season here for several years, but crops look very well owing to the small amount of work they have had. Meadows are fairly good and cutting has begun, but weather unfavorable Ifor curing. Hay and oat harvest is in progress and a fine crop. Wheat is being threshed and the yield reported The rain has done a great deal of damage throughout this community. We are sorry to say that John W. Butler, who accepted a position in Nebraska, will not have to return on the account of fairly good. It is reported that Joe S. -- Beard has raised 300 bushels of winter oats this season.

Aunt Nellie Conover, who has been quite sick for several weeks, is improving slowly. David Murrell was on the sick list a few days of last week. Mi3s Sallie E.

Parrish is doing some shopping in Burkesville today. Miss Hattie Glidewell, of Howard's Vale, who has been taking a business course at Bowling Green, will be at home in a few days. L. T.

Bakerton Red Sox crossed bats with Breeding Giants last Saturday. Score 16 to 19 in favor of Breeding. They will cross bats again next Saturday. Geo. Henry Parrish visited his grandpa, H. C. Parrish, yesterday. There will be an all day meeting at Parrish's Chapel and dinner on the ground next Sunday, Under the road law, we do not turn our bonds over to a corporation. We sell them ourselves, and for face value, and whenever a bond goesout, its face value in good money, comes into the county treasury. The holder of the bond then has our obligation, and we have his money. We put that money in good roads, and every body is benefited thereby. The money is spent in our midst, almost every dollar of it, and at the end the money is here plus the good road3. If good roads are worth any thing we are just that much better off than we were before. Then good roads will invite capital to the county; farmers will come to buy our lands, as they came to Taylor county when the railroad was built, and they will assist us in liquidating the bonds and building up the county materially. Does the law the contracts for road building? Yes, contracts pass the scrutiny of the Fiscal court, and also the State Road Commissioner, and after a road is built, a certain per cent., of the contract price is with held for a year in certain It would help the country very order that it may behis duty.that the much in the reduction of freight rates contractor has done especially on heavy articles, such as Columbia Eastern Star Chapter will fertilizer, iron, fencing etc. A great meet this afternoon and with part of the year we would have the Campbellsville Chapter.
