VOLUME XIX mt ft four COLUMBIA, ADAIR COUNTY, A $onnin jfeftf. KENTUCKY, "v 41 WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 9, A 1916. NUMBER The Primary Election. Enthusiasm was very much lacking upon the part of Democrats and Republicans alike in the Congressional primary election pulled off in the Bighth distriot, last Saturday. Many of the counties cast only a few votes. In Adair county it was the lightest vote ever polled in a primary in our recollection, only a few hundred Democrats and a small number of Republicans participating. The county was not canvassed, in person, by either candidate, and they seemed to be as little interested in Adair's vote as tke voters manifested. Mr. Helm, of Lincoln county, carried the county over Mr. Montgomery, of Casey county, for the Democratic nomination for Congress by about 188 votes, he having received 526 votes and Montgomery 338. Montgomery carried the three Columbia precincts and also White Oak, Helm the rest of the county Hon. L. T Neat, the Republican candidate for Congress, carried the county by more than six hundred over Dr Davidson, of Lincoln county, and Paul Revere Ride. How President will Come to Pleasant Gathering. Delightfully Entertained. Last Thursday the following crowd of young people spent the day with Mr. and Mrs. E G. Flowers in a most delightful manner at their beautiful country home, at Bliss.

This news is received here as indicated that the Kaiser plans a tremendous counter-strok- e against the French and British. It is expected to be launched either on the Somme, across the ground where the allies are carrying on their great offensive, or perhaps further to the west. It is believed there is a possibility that it may take the form of the longexpected drive on Calais in an effort to relieve the pressure being brought to bear against the German lines in Simultaneously new and violent attacks against the Verdun front are expected. That Germany is preparing for her final and most desperate effort in an attempt to wrest the offensive from the allies is the general belief in London. Paris, July 27. Sir Edward Morris, Premier of Newfoundland, in an interview with a of the Havas News Agency, declared that the war is practically finished. Premier Morris has just returned from the section of the Somme front where the Newfoundland detachment is stationed. Before leaving for the front he was asked by President Poincare and Premier Briand to express to his countrymen in the trenches. France's admiration and appreciation of their splendid services. In his interview he said: "The war is virtually finished and the Germans are beginning to realize it. The battle of Verdun, the greatest battle in history, is a victory for France. It is the finest of all her glorious exploits and gives a. new impulse to the whole nation. "German prisoners with whom I talked, officers wearing the Iron Cross, told me-- that the Em peror and his staff seem to- fear that Germany has lost the game. The collapse of Germany is only a question of time. When that day arrives we must see that the victory won by our arms is not lost by diplomatic negotiations."

May be there is some consolation in that. Kentucky has had abundant water supply and will stand a continued drouth without suffering for some time for water for human beings or animals. But the corn in many counties could not be plowed more than once because it rained so often. Where the corn has not yet become large enough to shade the ground the fields will bake hard and injure the growth unless they are plowed, and where the corn is too old to plow, but has not yet "shot," there is danger of a shortage due to the ears shooting during excessively hot dry weather. But a corn crop is tenacious of life and it i3 observable that when the most pessimistic prophesies have been made all summer there is a fair crop in the fall. Farmers need not give up hope because we are having some blistering days when the corn ground is not in as good condition as it might be to hold moisture. Cure for Cholera Morbus.

Hughes, the publican candidate for President, makes an issue of the Federal Reserve system, established by the Democratic Administration, is he going to read out of his party the 33 Republicans who voted for the measure in the House? Will he repudiate the 16 Progressives, the one Independent, and the Republicans who voted with the 248 Democrats in establishing the sound banking and currency law which has been approved by the public and the banking world? Will he also repudiate the 7 Republicans who voted for the measure in the Senate? Mr. Hughes will have a difficult time evolving any issue that will not entail a repudiation of many of the Congressional leaders of his own party. If he thinks it expedient to adopt a strong attitude on the submarine controversy, wh:ch President Wilson settled by obtaining a full recognition of American rights under international law and bringing about the cessation of submarine warfare, he will have to repudiate the 101 Republican Representatives who voted against tabling the McLe-mor- e resolution and thus registered themselves in favor of a surrender of American rights. Incidentally, he will have to read out of the Republican party the twelve Republican United who voted States Senators against tabling the Gore resolu- Rain-e- y Tariff Commission bill in Congress and it will become a law in Congress and it will become a law in a few weeks And the Chamber of Commerce of the United States, representing the business men of the nation, Republicans and Democrats and Progressive, has endorsed the Rainey bill. One hundred and twelve Republicans and four Progressives voted with the Democratic majority for the good roads bill in the House. One hundred and four Republicans and three Progressives voted for the Administration's Rural Credits bill. Republican 1 e a ders of the House and Senate repeatedly have endorsed the President's action in keeping out of war with Mexico. If a vote were taken in the House and Senate today on remaining at peace with Mexico, the Republicans would vote for peace so long as President Wilson is able, as he has been, to preserve the honor of the nation. It will be interesting to see how far Mr. Hughes goes in repudiating his own party in his speech of acceptance. The only way hs can avoid the repudiation of a very large number of the Republican leaders in Congress is by skidding around all the problems of the day The Best Laxative.
