A sufficiency has been" heard, however, for us make the statement that all the Republican ticket has been elected, save Mr. Loy, who won his race for county School Superintendent by a large majority, perhaps two hundred or more. The hardest light was in the race for County Attorney. Mr Montgomery was defeated by Mr. Coffey by something like d thirty majority. S. C. Neat, Milfler for County Albert court clerk by a large majority. C.G. Jeffries, Democrat, lost his race to Mr. Tarter for Jailer by over three hundred majority. The other Republican candidates were elected by safe majorities. There is much speculation as to the cause of some Democrats losing their fight, but the real cause is that the county is Republican by about three hundred majority, and to overcome that advantage was a ta3k too heavy fot the Democrats. There was dissatisfaction over the nomination of ofjMr. Wesley, by the Republicans, for School Superintendent, in his own tfarty, and a strong fight was made against him, many of his own party doing their bit. His opponent, Mr. Noah Loy, was a popular gentleman to start with, and many Republicans supported him, hence his election. The election was quiet throughout the county, no bitterness having been displayed by opposing candidates. The defeated Democratic candidates will take their defeat philosophically aud the sun will rise and set as heretofore", all the parties dwelling together in peace. It would be useless to advance causes for the defeat of Democratic candidates, other than the county is largely Republican, and when you take that into consideration if will be seen that several of the Democratic candidates run wonderfully strong races. The figures we have show Mr. Loy's majority 181, but in the count the woman vote is not considered. It is likely to bo larger when all returns are in. Mr. Sanders, Republican, wins for Sheriff by a safe majority over Clyde Crenshaw. Next week the table will appear showing the vote eacli candidate received.

His affliction was alarming, and he was removed to the Deacon-nes- s nospital where he received the closest medical attention. His age, being seventy-fiv- e years old, was against him, and the skill of physicians failed to bring relief, and at 4 o'clock Friday morning he passed beyond the veil. He was not only a skillful politician, but was one of the most courteous gentleman in Kentucky. He was a native of Ireland, but. more than a half century of his life was spent in Kentucky. The interment was in Cave Hill, He is survived by his wife vho was Miss Sue Alexander, one son, Mr. W. A. Hunter, who was the Republican candidate for Treasurer at the last State election, and was defeated by only a few votes. The latter part of last week the Louisville papers reported that he "was lying dangerously ill at the Deaconess Hospital. He has been a very prominent Republican politician in Kentucky. He has served in Congress from the Third and also the Eleventh district aud in the contest for the nomination in said district he carried Adair without his name being on the ballot, the voters writing his name. His apponeut was Don Edwards. He was also minister to a, under McKinley's administration. For many years he lived at Burkesville.

Petrograd, Monday, Oct. 29 Foreign Minister Terestchenko, in addressing the preliminary parliament today, said a separate peace was impossible and that defense of Russian territory was one of the fundamental needs. The Foreign Minister said the absolute independence of Cour-lan- d and perhaps of Poland and Lithuania, was impossible, as it would mean that Russia would return to the days before Peter. He also asserted complete demobilization and disarmament and neutralization of canals and Russtraits were impossible. sia's foreign policy had not changed, the Minister continued since the first statement enunciating the principles of no indemnities, no annexations and the right of nations to self-definition.

The summing up is, in the main, correct. The Germans cannot hope to win the war by their blow against Italy. They may hope that by a great success in that quarter they may so discourage the allies that peace could be negotiated during the present winter, but the German staff knows as well as any other that, if the war goes on, the war must be decided by the outcome of the strife between the armies now facing each other on the plains of Flanders. We think, however, that the military writer of the New York newspaper somewhat underestimates the meaning of this drive in Italy in so far as it relates to Austria. If Italy is struck a blow as will prevent her from attacking on tbe Italian front far six months to come, Austria is secure for the rest of the winter. On the Russian side the fighting has ended. Only on thejtalian side was Austria in danger danger, and that seemed for a time acute. To meet it the German staff drew heavily from the whole Russian front, united a dozen of the best corps in the German army with a similar body of fresh Austrian troops, and rushed like a torrent upon the Italians. It may be some days before the world will know the full meaning of the blow at Italy. That it has partially succeeded cannot be doubted, but, if the Germans and Austrians accomplish nothing more than gaining ground, it may be doubted if the operation can be considered an unqualified success. In the meantime the fate of Europe is being determined in Flanders. There the fighting may go on for months or years, but there the war will be decid ed.

It ought to be that It is In its essence a sacred thing laid upon the altar of your country," Secretary ..Redfleld says in his note. "It can hardly be the mere lending to the government of that which you have to spare. Your own loyal support, so generausly given to the first Liberty Loan, may well make it impossible now to make the second subscriptions which are at once available. It Is a real sacrifice for which the country calls," Mr. Redfleld continues. He then reminds employes that a menace has arisen in the world which threatens all humnity. "It has poisoned the very soul of the German people and made the power which now possesses them one whose rule is inconsistent with the peace of the world. That evil power has shown itself and Its time nature in the deeds which make the rape of Belgium a world horror. "The hideous record left behind by German handB In their retreat in northern France speaks eloquently of the nature of the thing we fight This evil thing opposes every ideal in which Americans have been bred.

Secretary Redfleld then reminds the workers that Americans stand today beside the men of all races and all faiths in a common contest against a foe that threatens all. "It is to take part, therefore, in a great human-wid- e struggle that you are called It will require sacrifice, as I have said. The cause of the sacrifice is a worthy one, and it will not be made in vain," the Secretary says in closing his letter, r which because of its touching appeal and genuine good sense wil! be given widespread publicity throughout the United Stales.

A subscription of $400,000 for the Tenth Federal Reserve District, with headquarters at Kansas City, is announced by the Chicago, Burlington & ao,fl THIS IS YOUR WAR There were several reasons for this, the foremost of which was that the loan was put out in the spring, when they were busy with their crops and it was difficult for the canvassers to Interview them. Then, too, they had to borrow money for their planting. Now their crops in, and at the present high price of food stuffs they should have a large sum of money in their hands. For a loan of a portion of that money, the Liberty Bond campaigners are now appealing all over the country. The various farm bureaus and and good resocieties are expected. sults are When liberty came to America the farmer helped to bring it He carried the gun; he contributed unsparingly ;of his substance; he fed the armies. In the present struggle for universal 'liberty it is certain he will do no less. He has already made splendid re sponse to the demand for greater food production. The first loan largely the efforts overlooked the farmer wore concentrated in the cities. The second campaign should give every opportunity for farmers as individuals and their organizations to 'support the government in Its financial (program. It is the highest expression of Americanism that all the people should help carry the common load 'in this critical hour. j I were few. United States. They believed in and wanted international peace, but they wanted It on a basis of international justice which Tvould insure the right of our people to govern themselves. When the Imperial German Government undertook to destroy the lives of our people and to impose a rule ot conduct upon us without our consent in places under the jurisdiction of the United States government, there was no course left but to resist," Secretary Wilson said"The workers have more at stake in this conflict than any others, be-'cause it is only in a democracy that the common people can come into their own. The great privilege is not given to all of us to serve our country on the battlefield or in the trenches, but there are other ways in which we can serve and assist those who are privileged to carry our flag on the battle fields of Europe. The impulse of sacrifice for the common good is sending the youth of our country into the trenches in defonse of Liberty, humanity and democracy. "To those of us who must of necessity remain at home to till the soil, harvest the crops, man the factories, mines and mills, the way is open for additional service.' We too must make sacrifices. The men who go forth to do battle in the field must be equipped and sustained. Funds must be forthcoming to furnish the food, the firearms and other supplies for the fighting forces of the nation. Finances for that purpose must be secured immediately from the sale of bonds. The workers can help by contributing their mite. Combined Efforts Will Win. "I am remindod of the fable of a great dm: h- - when the crops were wasting the want of water, and one little raindrop sa'd to another in the clouds, i would :;ke to go down to the relief of the farmer and his perishing crops, but I am so little it wen' I be useless.' And another little r .h. drop replied, 'It would be useless for you to go down alone, but let iu all go down and our combined effort will bring the needed relief.' Teh advice was accepted and a beautiful shower poured down on the land and the crops were saved for the harvest. "And so it is with the workers. The funds each has available is but a drop, but all of the drops together can make a shower of funds that will furnish the needed supplies, bring Joy to the hearts of the boys at the front and consternation to our enemies," Secretary Wilson declared. - "The great European war in which we are now involved came to the people of the Western Hemisphere as a terrible shock, and to no portion of the people did it come as a greater shock than to the wageearners of the LIBERTY CALLED AND HE WENL 'J Same Spirit of Freedom is Calling to American People Today Are You Responding Like a Putnsm? The spirit which actuated Israel Putnam more than a century ago is what is needed In America today, according to men who are In close touch with the war conditlonrfand the affairs of the United States. Putnam was plowing his New England field when a horseman dashed up and told him the tale of the British raid on Lexington. It was seeding time and Putnam's field demanded Immediate care. Did he falter or hesitate? Did he procrastinate? No. He left his team in the field still hitched to the plow and hurried away to answer the call of hl3 country. He did not stop to consider toe cost of leaving. Liberty was at stake and he was off to the rescue. Liberty Is at stake again. Tour liberty and the liberty of the rest of the civilized worid. Every day the rural mail brings the story with all Its dread warning along the winding country road to the Israel Putnams of today. But they are not in the fields. They are storing their $2 and $3 wheat, their $2 potatoes and their $2 corn and their $3 onions. They, better than anyone else; know how well they are responding to the call of liberty. But It is time that these men. as well as their city, brothers awake. Do your bit in placing the second issue of Uncle Sam's Liberty Bonds. Uncle Sam is your friend. But he can do only what you assist him accomplishing with all your might Get busy, today. Be an Israel Putnam In your community. ARKANSAS TENANT FARMERS TO BUY LIBERTY LOAN BONDS "Tenant farmers of Akansas, who in previous years have found it difficult to make both ends meet, are this year going to be liberal buyers ot Liberty Bonds," said H. A. Morrison, cashier of the Bank of Commerce, Earl, Crittenden County, Arkansas. A dollar cotton crop in his county alone explains why this is to come about Mr. Morrison said that his fellow citizens were showing such enthusiasm in the new bond Issue that he came to St Louis to arrange to supply them with bonds. "Heretofore," said Mr. Morrison, "the proceeds of the annual harvest was not sufficient to maintain the farmers until the next crop could be harvested, and it was the custom in April to begin buying food and other necessities on credit The result was that in the fall it usually took about all the .farmer got for his crop to pay his debts and get through the winter. "This year it is different are going to get from 30 to 45 cents a pound for cotton, whereas before they only got from 6 to 10 cents." "One fine thing about these bonds is that the farmer can use them as legal tender. In case they need money they will find their war bond Investment readily negotiable." Crittenden County's allotment Is ?81,000, but Mr. Morrison is going to try to dispose of 135,000 worth there. ten-millio- fr n TELEPHONE CAPdPAIGN IS PROVING BIG SUCCESS n -- IKULTUR MUST BE ENDED NOW FOR ALL TIME I! tUtIfltlHttMllflffHMI tlMIHIHAlllUUIIIIIimilllllUtlUl THE LIBERTY BOND By N.

"It is the duty of every woman," says Mrs. Gus V. R. Mechin, president of the St. Louis Woman's Council, "to aid the government in placing the Liberty Bonds. Every woman should buy at least one bond and sell at least one." Mrs. Mechin has two sons In the service. "Every woman must do her duty," declares Mrs. F. T. Kennedy, wife of JIM DALE Capt. F. T.

When Barger's name was presented there was a brief discussion, followed by unanimous vote for him.
