Declaring that "long ago we eliminated these goods from our catalog, accepted our loss and forgot all about them,'' Walter Scott, vice president, said his concern has set itself against "German propaganda designed to re introduce into America German made articles." The shipment was Jpart of a lot of goods purchased by the firm early in 9 14, he said, some of which was received, while the balance was detained at Rotterdam by war conditions.

Are you in favor of voting a 20 cents road tax for the purpose of constructing and improving of the public roads and bridges, one or both, as the Fiscal Court of said County may direct. Said taxation to run a period of five years, and it is further ordered that no amount that can not be raised by the levy in any onyear shall be expended in that year.

EMINENT MINISTERS INDORSE STANLEY FOR SENATOR All Other Issues Must Give Way, Says Dr. W W. Landrum,One of Louisville's Foremost Temperance Advocates. October 11. IMS. Dear Brother: Grace, mercy and peace be with thee. In a Louisville morning paper I y read a report of a certain resolution said to have been passed by the Western Baptist Association. The title of the paper's report is "Vote as You Pray." All Baptists should vote as they pray. Just now the burden of our prayer should be that the world may be made safe for democracy. Lloyd George, premier of GTeat Britain, as you know, the most distinguished Baptist in the world, wrote Mr. Coleman, president of the Northern Baptist Convention: "Tell the Baptist brotherhood that we are lighting for Baptist principles." Baptist principles are democratic principles. Democratic principles are in this country in the hands of the Democratic party. A Democratic President is the mouthpiece of that party. His word will close the war and determine matters after the war. Behind him every lover of democratic principles should stand toto-da- ' J3 f ytiiTwjjyIB -- SsBBb age "&' 'OgHHraSS y Wilson Wants a Democratic Congress To Aid Him In Bringing the Boys Back Home. Legislature has passed the prohibition amendment. Congress has voted us a dry nation. National prohibition is as dead an issue as slavery or free silver. The one great issue is the winning of the war and the settlement of the momentous questions arising after the war. Those questions must be settled by the party that always sustains the President. I believe our brother Gatliffe voted as he prayed when he voted to nominate Gov. Stanley for Senator. I believe Senator Frost spoke as he prayed when he introduced Gov. Stanley along with Senator Beckham. I believe Hon. H. V. McChesney votes as he prays when he supports Gov. Stanley for Senator. I know of no more conscientious Baptists in Kentucky. And there are others. With malice towards none and with charity for all. insisting as we do on Baptist individualism rid conscientiousness, I am willing to place myself among those of our brotherhood who believe that this is the time for all men to be sure they are in perfect Gov. accord with our President. Stanley is such a man and the President can rely on him during and after the war. With all good wishes and high regards fraternally yours for democratic principles in both church and State. W. W.

The author of that pronouncement had never consulted me. I am not a Democrat in politics, and am not now Interested one b in the partisan phases of this campaign. But my sober judgment of the issues involved compel me to favm-thelection of Mr. Stanley in preference to Mr. Bruner. Certain Baptist Associations in Western Kentucky have seen fit in the exercises of their inalienable right to urge our people to vote against Mr- Stanley, but to that advice I Cannot consent. The Prohobition question is a negligible matter in this campaign. That issue has reached such a stage that no matter which man is elected, his vote will fall on the right side. Mr. Stanley's personal habits past or present do not determine on which side his vote will be cast. When nation-wid- e prohibition comes to a vote, good sense and good politics will put Stanley on the prohibition side. But, were his prohibition, I should still emphatically favor his election. vote known to be against nation-wid- e The support of the President in the prosecution of this war is also a secondary matter. Both Mr. Bruner and Mr. Stanley can be depended upon to fight this war through to a finish. In the present fever-heof American patriotism, it would not be good sense or good politics for a Senator not to do so. Were the patriotic prosecution of this war the issue between these two men, I would not turn my hand over for the difference between them. The issue in this campaign is greater and mt re vital than either of the things named. That issue is this: Shall certain definite ideals of social, economic and political justice for the world be realized For the first time in many years we seem to have a President whose thinking is as clear and thorough as his purpose is positive and unshakeable. Thinkers and idealists to whom this era of justice has been a pleasant dream, and who have been somewhat skeptical of all politicians and their promises (even of Wilson at the outset) are now confident that they have as a President a man whose thought moves on as lofty a pitch as theirs, and who also has the political acument to translate those ideals into legislation. OUR CONFIDKNCE IS IN WOODROW WILSON. Let me quote from a recent magazine issue: "Progressive citizens of whatever party have adopted President Wilson as their leader." Tlie crucial matter In this campaign is not what Stanley or Bruner will do while the war Is on, but what they will do when the war Is ended. Either man will fight the war through to a finish it would be his finish if he did not. But, the probabilities are that one man would follow the leadership of his party chieftain and go WHERE WOODROW WILSOX IS GOING, while the other man would line up with one of the two sections of the Republican party. It is on that "probability" that I FAVOR WHOLE HEART-EDLTHE ELECTION OF STANLEY AS OUR SENATOR. Wilson has the Ideas and the ideals; lie needs now the chance to put them Into law. I am for giving him the MAX HE WAXTS so that full responsibility can tic thrust on him for any failure. If there Is failure. To my mind these vast and matters of social justice, of economic right, of political liberty demand with compelling voice that every man who loves his fellow shall vote for Stan'ey as a Sincerely, LESLIE L.

The news which a few months since would have created so wide a sensation, is fully discounted; and is received with that complacency that fol lows upon the consumption of a deal that long has been success, fully In train; and which now is virtually complete to the profit of the party of the first part; and the salvation of the party of the second part Austria would gladly have quit the war long ago. had it not been involved in what our rural Kentuckians know as a "tail-bolt- " the same being equally difficult to release and to maintain. Austria now sees no good rea son for dawdling along with her former Prussian masters in the matter of negotiations. This is a sensible view of the matter; and especially so since Austria is enabled to see with the eyes of the world that Jher former Prussian masters are mow impotent to mike things perilous, or even disagreeable for her. Austria wishes to be left alone to seek something to eat, something to wear and a place to lay his weary head Meantime, the Czechs and the Jugo-Slavare given full satisfaction; and it is apparent that any of the subject peoples may go at far as they like in self de termination so far as Austria is s of Austria the more useful and interesting: and from this viewpoint it is impossible to see why Austria should not be given way and accept her quietus within a very shoit time.

With the American Forces, Oct 29, 10 p m. Abundant evidence is reaching our side of the line that German soldiers who are opposing stubborn resistance to the First American Army north of Verdun are fighting under instructions from their officers that the harder they resist now the better armistice terms the Germans will be offered. Prisoners state that they have im phcit faith that success in holding back the Americans now will have an important effect on the diplomatic situation. There was no important infantry activity on the American front today. However, the artillery on both sides was busy, the Germans sending over 7,500 shells and we replying with some 10,000. Aerial activity is above the normal, thirteen Boche fliers being brought down by our -- concerned. As an element of emphasis to Austria's note we find the gallant Italians capturing 9,000 on the Italian (Piave, prisoners presumably) front; and therwise comforting themselves as if they never had heard the word peace. In France the Allies are proceeding about their business with a constancy that gives the lie to all suggestions that talk of peace might weaken our morale. These facts make the giving "Oh, fer th Lord's sake!" Peter broke out. "Food, food, food! and money an' 'other people ever sence th' start o' this damned war.
