the good roads prop osition While its iideas have met with some opposition it came from sources that consid ering their surroundings may have been well meant if ill advised l Any movement in the until

good roads the year round the system would be complete Merchants more fully realize the position than do land owners themselves as witness the eager ness with which the merchants of Hickman fell in with the prop osition to call the matter to the attention of the Fiscal court That a system of taxation either state or local is the key to the situation must be admitted from the lead taken by progressive good roads advocates as note the utterance of W H Moore pres idpnt of the National Good toads Association Mr Moore IS Im advocate of a state highway commission and the employment of competent engineers to direct the work He wants convicts taken out of competition with honest labor and put to work up on the roads and he wants va grants tto be forced to render ser vice on the highway instead of being confined in jails at the countys expense The public is being educated up to a point where good roads will bea popu lar measure and it will be well for those in authority to

The deipocrat f can meet at Cayce if necea aryThe n5ainbing ia to get a good wet of delegatsto go to the state con vention1 lujDne sense the Commercial ia right but it has lost sight of the fret that the influences of the section where the convention is held frequently have as much i r not more to do with the complexion of the Delegates selected than the wishes of the party i t self More especially is this ap plicable on this occasion where the faction in control of the affairs of the party at Fulton shrouds its every action in mys tery refuses to come out for any candidate and by underhanded methods endeavors to force tli convention away from the town which has openly declared it favoritism for the man of the hour The editor of the Com mercial is well enough versed i matters t political to know how Mass cconventions are manipula edg6y1 wirepullers who have in terests to seve He has no doubtp well grounded suspicions that these wirepullers will endeavor to 10 manage things that their will not that of the party shall1 be served and under such con ditions he must know that some other motive thn loyalty to ones town leas prompted the effort to hold the convention at Fulton With the convention hall packs- with rooters and wirepullers an expression of any sentiment oth I er than that bearing the seal of approval of the boss would be impossibleNo e from any of the local politicians that they are opposed to the nomination of Mr Hearst have ever been given Neither have they said that they favored his nomination So far theirworkhasall been done in the dark and no man knoweth their realobject It is an easy mat 4ter to pack the convention hall withrooters of different political stripe who do wit care a continental for the party an are satified when they have earned their money These men keep democrats out of the hall t and the expression of a sound democratic principle by anyone who bag been lucky enough to let in is either booted down or the speaker hustled out of the room on some pretext or other cainothing for appearances or the rights of others they are there to do the bidding of the boss an when his encomiums are won DM ward heelers and wirepullers are rewarded The matter of the place fo Jtolding the county convention iis one of much importanceenough I to at least to warrant the state ekairraan making an effort to capture itfor the town of Fulton

county is well Known and the result of the convention being heldl in Hick man would be u Parker delega tion to Louisville on June G Mr Young and his Fulton workers evidently are oopposed to this otherwise there would he no op position from one so high in authority The matter of selec tion ofjthe proper delegates is of the first importance but the will of the majority can be easily frustrated in mass conventions when the surroundings and sinister i influences of the locality in which the convention is held permits their manipulation It is in the power of County Chairman Alexander to frustrate this attempt to steal Fulton county Upon his notion in a como plexion of the delegates elected to represent this county Will it represent the democratic party or will it ue a tool in the hauls of him who would rather ruin the party than suffer any curtail meat of his power 1at tbelioolleggeni to Work Hickman has again been invaded by that most dett stable fraternity the bootlegger And as usual he has come from May- field At the time of the war made upon them last fall by Sher iff Carpenter and his deputies it wad thought that the town would be rid of them fora time at least fbut the festive bootlegger seems not to have profited by the ex crimetwith the results that he is out of pocket to the tune of 120 In this connection we may say that the average bootlegger in the opin ion of the officers cares no more for a fine or jail than he does about the law which he violates provisionewhereby arrangements could b made to put the county prisoners sat work say upon the roads anti make them do a days work every ten hours it would have a whole ofnsociety which has no reward for the law preferring to hold it in contempt rather than go to work in some legitimate industry In the main it is their ah horrence of work tljat lca3s them into violating the law an 1were the county officials to put the screw to them by compelling each one so convicted fo do a days work at some kind of hard labor it would either prove a countydor result in keeping this most despicable oftill criminall elements out of the reach of the oflicerrf of the county So long as they have nothing to do but lay in jail and get fat on Uncle Joes good grub there is not much hope of effectively ridding the community of them Put the bootleggers to work and their rank will soon be thinned down to nothing and
