Played Important Part In Forcing Large Corporations to Pay Their Just Proportion of Taxes and is Best Qualified In Every Way for Auditorship It is natural and proper that the Democrats of Kentucky should take a deep Interest in the selection of their candidate for Governor on August 7, iut they should not allow that race to overshadow all others and cause Ihem to neglect or overlook other races. Especially should they ;tfve their attention to the Auditor's race, for that position ranks in importance next to that of Governor. The Auditor is the head of the fiscal Affairs of the state and the head of the important Board of Franchise Assessments which Axes the franchise valuations upon which all corporations doing business in the state must pay taxes. The work of that board is of importance to the people, jind, above all others, the Auditor, who presides as chairman of the board, should be a man well equipped and trained for its difficult duties, and one who is incorruptible and fearless, ready to compel the corporations to pay their just part of the revenues of the state, without being unjust to any corporation or persons. Such a man Is Thos. S. Rhea, who is asking the nomination from the Democratic party, and there is not a man 3n Kentucky better qualified for the position or more deserving of the support of the Democrats. As State Treas-iire- r for nearly four years In the present administration, he has been a mem-"be- r of that board and a leading spirit in its splendid work. "With his intelligent and active assistance, the franchise assessments upon corporations iave been so increased that the state 3s now receiving several hundred thousand dollars more in revenue every year than ever before. The board has increased the franchise valuation upon Ut. G. Phillips, Frankrort, Ky. 3132,000,000.

In th four years of this administration, the Increase of revenues from the increased assessments of those corporations, which have not made contests, will alone amount to a sum to the state far in excess of a million dollars; and the increase of revenues from the jinte sources to the counties, cities, downs and school districts will amount nt far-reachi-- If there is one contest in the approaching Democratic State primary election about which the Democratic newspapers of Kentucky seem to be agreed it is that the Hon. Claude B. Terrell, of Trimble County, should and will be nominated for the office of State Trea-.ure- r. Mr. Terrell has made a runaway race of it from the day he entered the contest. His especial fitness for the office he is seeking has appealed to the Democratic editors of every section of Kentucky, and they have to about two million dollars for the done much to mold the sentiment of their communities in his favor by informing the people as to same period.

No man has had more o do with this great work than Tom Rhea, and no man now seeking a nomination for a state office is better prepared than ho to render useful and valuable service to the state and to the people in the next four years. No other man seeking this office has ever had the slightest experience with its duties. Some of his enemies, at the beginning of this campaign, undertook to criticise him and his record as an official, but they had to quickly abandon such attacks, because the published facts clearly disproved their misrepresents tions. In the next administration, Mr. Rhea would prove himself a tower of strength to the state in the conduct of its revenues and fiscal affairs. As a Democrat and party worker, there is not a blot upon his record. Four years ago, when he was on the state ticket as the nominee for Treasurer, he added great strength to the ticket, as was shown by the increased majority of 2,500 given in his judicial district alone. Last fall, In the Senatorial and Congressional races, he was chosen by the Democratic State Committee as Campaign Chairman, and under his intelligent and successful management and organization, the Democratic majority in the state was increased to 32,000.1 Tom Rhea has always been true to the party and its nominees. He has never bolted nor sulked when things did not go his way in primaries or ventions. The Democratic party in the campaign this fall needs him upon the No other man can give It ticket. greater strength or.do more to insure Its success in the November election. He is a man of pleasing and attractive personality, free from malice, kind, considerate to all, a temperate and a temperance man, never having touched a drink of alcoholic liquor In all his life, and, all in all, he Is a man worthy in the highest degree of the confidence and support of all good citizens. The Democrats of the state could not find a better man to nominate for any office than Tom Rhea, and, if the signs indicate anything, he will bo the nom-nefor Auditor by a handsome majority in the primary on.

Schaff On Railway Investments President Wilson, recently referring to our railroad problems, said in part: "They are indispensable to our whole economic life and railway securities are at the very heart of most Investments, large and small, public and private, by Individuals and by institutions. There is no other interest so central to the business welfare of the countrv. as this. No doubt. In the light of the 1 new &y wjth 5ts new understandings, the problem of the im M&K railroads will also be met and dealt with in a spirit of candor and justice." jjr Jp L When the first citizen of the land stresses the import- railJlillB' ance of understanding and dealing justly with the uponroads, certainly the American plowman can venture a careful study of the problem. C. E. Schaff, president of the M. K. & T. railway company, when asked to outline the relation of the public to railroads Investments, saicT in part: "It may be said that the railroad world fe encumbered with a lot of phantoms which exist only in the popular fancy. For Instance, because there have been a few 'railroad magnates' whose names have figured prominently in finance, many people have come to believe that the railroads of the country are largely owned by a few rich men. As a matter of fact nothing could be farther from the truth. Out of the colossal sum of twenty billion dollars of American railroad securities, less than five per cent is now, or ever has been, in the hands of these men who have figured prominently in the newspaper headlines while the other 95 per cent is in the hands of over two million investors, large and small, who in many Instances have put the modest savings of a lifetime into these securities in order that they might lay away a competency for old age. When, therefore, the value of these securities is depressed or perchance destroyed, the hardship is a hundredfold greater upon thousands cf every-dacitizens, than upon the handful of millionaires, good or bad, who have figured prominently in railroad circles. Hundreds of millions of dollars of the assets of our great life' and fire Insurance companies, savings banks, trust companieseducational and fiduciary Institutions are invested in railroad bonds and the moment, therefore, that the soundness of these bonds is called into question the financial solidity of these myriad institutions directly affecting the welfare of millions of policyholders and bank depositors is gravely menaced. During the last several years, many millions of dollars representing depreciated values, have been charged off the books of concerns like those enumerated above. American railroads have become a vital part of the very woof and fabric of the nation. Their continued efficiency is absolutely essential to the smallest community In the land. , In blindly striking at the railroads our blows fall not merely upon thousands who have committed no wrong, but, in the last analysis, upon ourselves. ' We should remember how interdependent we have come to be in this mighty republic of ours that each Is in truth become more and more his brother's , keeper, and that we need to act and think circumspectly, lest in our mistaken zeal we destroy those who, like ourselves, need whatever of this world's goods the toil and sweat of years has bequeathed to them."

This is the last issue of The News before the primary and there is much speculation as to the result in the race for Governor. The information before us leads to the conclusion that the two leading candidates for the Democratic nomination are A. 0. Stanley and H. V. McChesney, the latter candidate favoring State wide prohibition. Those who are in touch with Mr. Stanley's progress feel sure that he is a winner, and Mr. McChesney's followers are as equally sanguine. Mr. McDermott is not out of the race, his organ and managers in the city of Lovisville claiming that he will come under the string first. We have our choice between men and if we lose in the primary we will rejoice with those who are gleeful over the success of their candidate.

Cromwell predicts Stanley Democrats of Adair jCounty: In making the race for State Senator I had hoped to have for opponent a man who was truthful, honest and fair, and who an would eliminate from the campaign all personalities. To my exceeding regret Mr. Hatcher, who is contesting the nomination with myself, has not fulfilled any one of my anticipations. It has generally been the custom for candidates for Democratic nominations when they start out to canvass, to submit a list of speaking engagements to their opponents, and for them to arrange joint debates when each could put forward their individual claims. This Mr. Hatcher failed to do, but I have learned that he made speeches in Adair county without inviting me to be present or without notifying me of his intentions. The fact that he did this would not matter if it had not come to my knowledge that in these speeches he made a number of charges and accusations that were false and untrue and he knew them to be so at the time. He charged that I am a Bank and Kailroad candidate. This is untrue I have never, in all my life, owned one dollar interest in a bank. I was employed as a clerk in one from 1905 to April 1908, at which time I resigned my position to volunteer as a soldier in war. Returning home from Cuba I secured a the Spanish-Americ- a job as a trucker in the Glasgow railroad freight depot, and received for my labor $1.00 per day, and in time worked myself up to the position of agent, which I surrendered on account of my health. He says that I am a large stockholder in the Glasgow n fact that my father was a stock Railroad. Now it is a holder in this road,. but at his death his entire holdings were left, by will, which is of record in the Barren County Clerk's office, to in trust to be held Mr. C. U. McElroy, my senior brother-in-lacontrolled by him absolutely until ten years should expire, at and which time it is to be sold and divided equally among the living heirs, and they are ten in number. He further asserts that I have a brother engaged in the liquor business, which he knows is absolutely false. In a controversy in the court house at Columbia I charged him, and proved it, that he had refused to leave the selection of our party's candidate to the county in which we both were broiit up. and now reside, and where we are best known. I even uifreii o leave the selection to the Democratic voters of precinct No 4 of the city of Glasgow, in which we both live. This he also declined, knowing that I would get more than 3 to 1 votes there. I understand he told the Democratic voters of Adair county, that I had Cincin-nat- i, voted other than the straight Democratic ticket and that I was not by Thos. B.

The severe I .Itala-Austria- fighting on the n frontier which has .been going on for approximately ten days shows no signs of a letup, nor is .there any clear indi cation of a definite outcome. The Italian official - reports continue to claim a succession of advances or the holding of the Austrians in check. The Austrians are contesting every foot of the Italian advance with stubborn determination and have lost 3,200 prisoners to the Italians, according to an official statement given out in Rome. In addition to the capture of Warsaw, the direct objective of the German Polish campaign of the past two weeks, the troop3 of the German Empire evidently are making a special endeavor just now to cut communication between Warsaw and Petrograd, with the purpose of preventing the successful retreat, if Warsaw falls, of the Russian army now defending that city. To this end are directed their operations north of Kovno, according to dispatches from Petrograd, as well as their, advance upon by way of Chelm k .and the right bank of the .River ..J3iig. The issues still are unde cided, with the Russians claim- "' 1 v,' ng temporary advantages. ,r in Petrograd- are , Observers watching with particular inter-ethree points around Warsaw where the German maneuvers are regarded as of special importance. These are the operations on the left bank of the Na-reto the north of the Polish capital, against the town of Ghelm, to the southeast, where possession of the railroad is the point at issue, and along the Bug. The Germans, according to Russian official reports, have brought up enormous reserves, but' nevertheless the Russian authorities say the troops of Emperor Nicholas have taken the offensive successfelly at several points. The German attacks along the River Nar-ehave been checked and along the River Bug soldiers are holding firmly. On the other hand, German troops under Field Marshal von Mackensen have made progress railtoward the Lublin-Chelroad. In the southern area of Russian Poland, between the Vistula and the Vieprz, the operations would appear to. have reached a temporary standstill. As an offset to this inactivity the Germans are widening the sphere of their hostilities toward the east. Capt. Eugene Delk, of the American steamer Leelanaw, sunk by a German submarine off Scotland July 25, reports from Aberdeen that he and his crew were treated with the utmost courtesy by their German captors. They traveled sixty miles on the deck of the submarine and were then sent into Kirk-xwa-ll in their lifeboats. Russia, according to a dispatch from Petrograd, is making preparations to strenthsn her armies ei-tri- er -- in the field. She is about to order a mobilization throughout Siberia. She. has,, furthermore, called to the colors the men born in 21896, in other words, the youths of nineteen years of age. German submarine activity in the North Sea has not diminished.

You Should Vote For Jaa. P. Edwards For Lieutenant Governor 1st. ' Because he will bring more strength to tht ticket In November than any man running. 2nd.

Because a man from the Fifth Congressional District should be on the ticket to secure the thirty thou sand Democratic votes there for the ticket In No- tative. The success of our party in November is to be considered first regardless of the interests o any candidate, and its apparent that quite a number of those who claim to be Republicans are supporting the candidacy of my opponents, .with the view of organizing a bolt against me should I be nominated, I have decided to permit them to make the nomination. As my friends are loy al and will support either of my opponents who are nominated, this will leave the matter of nominating a Representative to those who would not support me if and in that way damage the State ticket ,the success of whi:h should be above the interests of any individuals. This, together with the reason that I have been prevented by serious illness in my family from making a thorough canvass causes me to with draw from the race.
