the people of the State t as the whole truth but the state t ment is only a part the truth and as a whole is very false From the t State Treasurer she does more than t anv other State except three or fourr but from all sources thef amount she gives is far down in the list Massachusetts has about Zthe same population as Kentucky As a State from the State Treasur ry Kentucky gives far more to her schools than does Massachusetts but from all sources Massachusetts gives far more than Kentucky For every dollar that Kentucky pays her public schools Massachusetts 617 and upon the same basis Ohio

ONE YEAR IOO Advertising rates made known on application MEMBER OF KENTUCKY PRESS ASSOCIATION RANK FAILURE REPUBLICAN ADMINISTRATION TRYING HARD TO EXPLAIN AWAY INCOMPETEWCY STATE JOURNAL EX POSES FALLACY JournalIr State SEb In a recent published statement Capt Farley the State Treasurer says We have struggled hard to avoid expense of having an extra session of the Legislature to provide for the deficit inherited from our predecessors and feel confident the good people ofthe State approve our course Will our good friend the Treas urer please explain what deficit he and his associates inherited from their predecessors of the Demo cratic adminisrration Has he devised some new system of accounting or mathematics by which he can proye that a substan tial balance in the treasury is aj deficit or has he become a wizard in lexicography and changed the meaning of the word deficit Does he hope by I skillful or magic ar rangement of figures to make the people believe that there was a deficit in the State Treasury when he took charge of it Surely not EveryoneIwho has given the matter any attention knows that instead oTa deficit there was at hat time a good workingbalance Jjo2 T 1 iii in the treasury ample to carryon he State Government under judicious and intelligent manage Dent His recent statement ia not in accord even with the published statement ofAuditor James some time ago The trouble with the members of the Dresent Republican adminis tration is that they are constantly bothered with the question coming from the lips ot everyone Why is it that the Democratic Administration with less revenue in their eight years promptly met every demand upon the State treasury paid off the State debt built the u ew Capitol increased the school term made so many other improvements and in January 1908 turned over to their successors 1100000 and the Republican administration in eighteen months with greater revenue have dissipa ted that sum closed the doors of the treasury against the payment of claims against the Common wealth made no improvements and have nothing to show to the people creditable to the stewardship of this administration They are unable to make as good a showing parableIhim and returned it without increment to his master It is idle for them to claim that when the democratic administration turned over the 1100000 to them it also left a large amount ofun paid claims That administration up to the last paid every claim in its due and regular order and if we are not mistaken it paid out just a few days before it went out of office about 300000 It could have left that unpaid for a while louger if it had beeu trying to make a big showing of figures It left the 1100000 not with any guaranty that it would remain there butas a sufficient sum to carryon the States business for it had with less money under greater financial stress and difficulties done so and preserved the States credit at the highest pointThe question is a hard one for them to answer or explain but the people are doing a lot of talking about it and have answered it for themselves As soon as they get a chance at the olls theywtlLtelLwhat that answer is They

their intelli gence if they do not at the first opportunity remedy their mistake ELECT U S SENATORS BY POPULAR VOTE Twentyseven States have through their Legislature declared in favor of an amendment to the constitution providing for the election of United States Senators by direct vote of the people Only five States are necessary now to propose an amendment which ought to be easily obtained under the prevailing sentiment in regard to the Senate the majority of which acts in utter disregard of the people in favor of classes If the present Senate is weeded out and all the Senators who had procured their seats by fraud excluded there would hardly be a corporals guard left There is every reason that the Senators should be elected by the people aud none that we know of why they should not The constitution provides that twothirds of the State acting together can propose amendments which when sub mitted requires the ratification of threefourths of the States asking through their Legislatures or con ventions The Senators as a rule are violently opposed to the in novation but the House we believe has no more tian one occasion expressed itself in favor of it The will of the people is often thwarted by the Legislatures in the selection of United Senators and in Ken tucky especially we have iO our shame and sorrow on more than one occasion seen the most flagrant disregard of party obligation and ofIis coming but it will be delayed as long as possible by the million aires of the Senate who can buy the Legislatures but not the maority of the great common people COTNTY

LakeaJout a year ago lihe court did inort pass upon the guilt or innocence off the accused but reversed uporfthe ground that there was not a fair ttial V1 The higher court lielthat the grand jury which found the indictment was illegally drawn in that it was selected from a panel named by the presiding judge inr stead of by three members of the County Court and that the court also erred in depriving eachOf e accused of his constitutional right to challenge veniremen The eight men were tried under a joint in djctment and the State onnsel contended that being jointly in dieted they were entitled to only 24 challenges which w apply if only one man was on trial The trial judge sustained this contenf tion The case now goes back to be tried in accordanc with the findings of tfie appellate Court and under the circumstaances the outcome is problematical On the trial in the lower court the fear was expressed by many law abiding cit izens that a jury could not be found to convict This fear seems to have been felt by the State hence the extraordinary and unu sual methods in the selection of the grand and petit juries On a trial under the regular forms the accused may or not be convicted but that some one or all of them is guilty of the Rankin murder is generally believd and if after a fair trial either or all should be adjudged guilty it is not likely they will escape punishment The result of the appeal is but another evidence of the unwisdom f of hurried trials of men accused of crimein times of great popular ex citement It is far better for tbe courts to await the return of reason and then rule absolutely in accord ancewith constitutional provisions Nashville American Get JJeVVitt Carbolized Witch iazel Salve when you ask for it There are a great many
