on of this district This bill was re lnently passed by Congress by an al lost un mimdus vote and it is now up tp the Senate The Louisville Evening Bost says that Mr Johnson has assur aiices thnt the bill will get through the S enate If the tax is removed it will be a grez t victiory for tobacco growers Conjgressmaij from the Fburrh district We were all pretty thoroughly cori v need tat an attempt to remove this t x wou d be futile but it is not infre qient ttat Mr Johnson accomplishes tnings that look impossible to many of us 4 I 11 I ii ANOTHER VOTE ON COUNTY UNIT On Monday March 16 at 1130a m1 another Jeffort was made to call the county unit bill from the committee and put it on its passage But the effort wasa ridiculous joke and it was perpetrate by reason of the fact that Sen ator Conn Linn Chairman of the Com mittee on Religion and Morals had re ceived quite a number of telegrams demanding that the county unit bill be passed The lineup is as follows FOR PUTTING BILL ON ITS PASSAGE Burnarn Donaldson1 Ecton Griggsby Hogan Jarvis Landrum Linn e11akerRives WatkiiSSmith H H 4 Watsom AGAINST PUTTING BILL ON ITS PASSAGE Bosworth Campbell ICharlton Chinn Curdton Hubble Maxwell McNutt Nell Newman Owen Tabo Taylor G A Walker Wilhemi May we not call this agrandtand play and tell the unvarnished truth Was it not like trying to revive the dead after decomposition had set up The county unit bill was killed on March themoulderingfpast i The Senators who voted for the coun ty unit bill on last Monday March 16 but who VOTED AGAINST IT on March 4the day it was killed by a majority of ONE VOTEare Senators Linn and Jarvis IP THESE TWO SENATORS WERE HONESTLY IN FAVOR OF THE PASSAGE OF THE COUNTY UNIT BILL ON LAST MONDAY MARCH 16 AT A TIME WHEN IT WAS NOT POSSIBLE TO PASS IT WHY WERE THEY NOT IN FAVOR OF ITS PAS AGE MARCH 4 WHEN THE VQTE OF EITHER WOULD HAVE GUAR ANTEED ITS PASSAGE Whatever else may be said of Sena tors McNutt Nell Cureton Taylor et al it can notbe said in this instance at least that they are wishwashy it can not be said of them that they would attempt to deceive the people by lining UP for the county unit bill when there was not so much as a remote chance of ks being put on its passage just m or der to be able to say to the dear folks at home Look here I voted for the unit blllf + Heres my yote in black and white Candidly we thought Conn Linn was too smart to attempt a trick of that sort He is recognized as an intelli gent young roan and has been an ag gressive leader in the Democratic party in Western Kentucky To him his votes on March 4jnay mean much for be it remembered A SINGLE VOTE in the State Senate on that day with LieutGovernor Cox to cast the decid ing vote would have given to the tern per nce people of Kentucky an absolute county unit bilL Senator Linn has ability and is wellequipped to serve the people as a public official but if he aspires to further his political ambition will he not be questioned in away that will make it embarrassing to him in a manner that will prove a barrier to his political achievements Will he not be asked by the temperance people WHY DID YOU NOT GIVE US YOUR VOTE ON MARCH 41 WHY DID YOU TRY TO DECEIVE US BY YOUR VOTE OF MARCH 161 Indeed we are astonished at the acj tion ot Senator Linn we are astonished tKat a man of his intelligence would attempt to deceive the people in such a clumsymanner Since the yote of March 4 there has not been anyhope for the county unit bill On that day Senator Linn by casting his vote for the unit bill could extendIJ 1 r who on March 4 voted with the his ky interests could have voted for the bill and by casting such a vote would have been the means Qf sending sun shine and happiness into mania blighted hqme fn Kentucky ONE MORE VOTE for the unit bill on March 4 may have been the means of arresting the murderers hand it might have been the means of saying many a boy from a drunkards grave and of putting hope in the breasts of many Kentucky mothers and wives We can not begin to measure the possibilities for good that ONE MORE VOTE for the unit bill op March 4 wopld have brought about We have always admired the man who does things in the openwho refuses to try to practice deception He may be our bitterest enemy yet if we know that he is wideopen with none of that wishwashy nature about him a game fighter in the broad open day detesting the knifeupthe sieeye methodwe admire him Mc Nutt and his ardent followers have not so f1ras we know attempted to deceive the people They have fought hard and in the open to defeat the county unit bill and on March 4 they dealt the death blow Nobody blames McNutt for his fight against thc unit bill be fought for a principle and doubtless represented his constituency as they wanted to be represented But Senator Linn has made a most serious mistake in casting a yote against the county unit bill at a time when his vote would have passed iL and then casting it for the unit bill at a time when he knew and every one else knew that there was not a possibility of its passage By such a procedure he becomes guilty of trying to decieve the people IT WOULD HAVE BEEN BEftCER SENATOR LINN TO liAiEISTAYED WITH THE WHISKY FOLKS In that instance he would have had only one charge to answer as it is he must answer to two charges If Senator Linn was for the unit bill on March 16 why was he not for it on March 4 On March 16 a twothirds majority was required to put it on its passage on March 4 a majority of one When an ostrich burys its head in tire sand it thinks its tail is hidden but when its feathers are plucked it sees its mistake I W CMcGHORD- Hon WC McChord as a member of the Legislature did his duty well No man ever worked more determinedly for the interests of the people than he His tobacco bill was defeated in the Senate after haying passed the House by an overwhelming majo ity Mr McChord comes back to thepeople- he represented with a clean record and with the knowledge that he endeavor ed to th6 uttermost to accomplish those things which would be to their best in terests We agree with Gov Beckham that a Democratic daily is needed in the city of Louisville but it will require more than a suggestion to get it Two or three hundred thousand dollars are the great round essentials to the establish ment of a daily in Louisville and it would then be necessary to pull hard up a long steep hill before that cov eted crown of success could be reach dt It may he imppssible to dismiss the bolt from our minds Black pages of history are as indeliby stamped upon our minds as are the bright pages of history in other words we may not find it possible to forget the dstardlyact of the assassin but we may with ease forget the contemptible creature who committed the act Therefore it will be no trouble to dismiss the bolters from our minds They are too lowflung to compliment with an H inflammatory speech or a bitter thought Dismiss as dead creatures dead from their own poison 4 i t THE POWER OF A VOTE Voting is a grave responsibility as well as a sacred right The man who looks upon it lightly and casts reckless vote is unfit for the privilege of suf frage and is a menace to a government of the people He is adangerous char actermore to be feared than the bloody anarchist and the midnight in cendiary who murder and apply the torch The latter are criminals and sooner or later must come in contact with the laws they have outragedthey must pay the penalties the laws inflict but the former is a free agent an un bridled galloping creature caring naught upon whom his hoofs may fall The former must limit their operations to a given community and withfthe consummation ot their dastardlydeeds they are taken into custody and placed where they can no more forever per form their inhuman offices but the scope ofthe operations of the latter is as broad as the Government itself and in nowise can he be retarded Nor would we advocate that he he retarded by force or that his suffrage be taken from hiin because the remedy would then be fraught with tenfold more danger to the nation than his reckless ness in the voting booth Persuasion t and entreaty arethe only remedies There is a wonderful power behind each yote that is cast While it may not be probable yet it is possible for a single vote to bring on revolution and reduce a republic to an empire Political parties are not responsible reckless voting but they are responsi ble for the dangers attending reckless voting A vote in itselt does no harm but if it happens to elect a scoun drel to a pofeitioti of trust he being commissioned by such a yote stabs to death the rights of the people After all the political party is the responsible agent for it gave to the reckless voter the opportunity But may not the honest voter bear in mind that a poUt cal party does not always look to the best interests of the people it some times happensvery frequently indeed that a political party nominates an individual who has the best chance to wina character who satisfies the hostile elements of the opposing party by a promise to do their bidding insofar as one or two certain thingsare con cerned The dissatisfied element secured sailing becomes easy The full vote of his own party is assured for their stands the party platform with its promises and there are the party leaders with the guarantee that the nominee is all right He will stand by the declarations of our platform shout the spellbinders and whisper the streetcorner agitators with a wink to the fellows who are opposed to cer tam planks of the platform And thus the managers of a political partythe chiefcooks and bottlewashers t h e pieeaters and the pIehuntersname as the party nominee zf thing either brainless or vicious who goes to Con gress or the Legislatures of our States to assist in making laws not for the people butt for that aggregation of corruptiomsts who have full purses of filthy lucre Such candidatess u c h nominees f give to the reckless voter the oppor tunity to strik at the very founda tion of the Republic So long as all leaders of political part ies are officeseekers of either appoint ive or elective offices we may expect dickers and dealwe may expect men to be nominated who will trade off the rigfi3aIld even the liberties of the people for a few votes in the general election kis no difficult matter for the wily politician to pull the wool over the eyes of the unwary voter This is as easy as slipping down a greased pole It is only necessary to appeal to the preju dices of the ignorant and to impress upon them the necessity of union arid to hint that they too stand a good chance to git at the piecounter to make em tumble like wabbly pegs to sp rJhj h t the touch of the windsv Therefore it is up to the people to watch the ballot box with undimmed eyes It is our mestsacred institution and in it lies the welfare of the American home 4 There is a chance to reach the reek less voter with common sens and en treaty and tins dangerous factor in American politics may be eliminatedby1- a change of heart But there is nor appeal that can be made to fhe vicious totallyignorant voter If possible ims suffrage should be taken from him just as a deadly weapon should be taken from a maniac We are aware that it is a wasteTof time to appeal to the totally ignorant Reason with a voter of that class be comes sheer nonsense His conceptive cells are as empty as space oer headK and about the only idea a fellow of that sort cangraSp is 250 and a pint Therefore the appeal should be made to the freckjess voterthe man who has the pwerof understanding but whojast dQnt care what happ4d and votes because it is lection day and because the constitution gives Him the t right One reckless intelligent voter is tenfold more dangerous than the t totally ignoraqt voter He has cuiml rV and intelligence and often uses hiav wits to herd the ignorant for the on1 slaught

tobacco c growers of Kentucky won a victory inVi the House today when Representative Dalzell of Pennsylvania called up ttiev bill removing the 6cent tax on tobacco 1 It provoked a discussion and passed the House almost in a jiffy It was all done so quickly that even some of the Ken tucky members who have been watcifc ing the bill with the eye of a hawk did not know it had passed until a good while afterward J Ben Johnson has assurances that the J bill will get through the Senate The V fact that Dalzell who is one of ththigh priests of protection balled it up is considered a sure indicatwn that the protection interests in the Senate will let it pass that body The bi1Im addition fo providing for the removal of the tax on leat tobacco when bought by storekeepers or dealers and sold to

Pub Co Clarice Lethbridge felt herself to be the most unhappy and forlorn of women My dear she told her best friend plaintively I am a neglected wife Leah Athelstane laughed derisively You are a pamperexLand much spoiled little beauty slit retorted Clarice made mournful eyes She looked very interesting lender sorrow John cares for nothing but his stupid old office and ridiculous deals in stocks and bonds tI Which same ridiculous deals ppay for all your absurd extravagances her friend replied beIbuy things just to pass away the time Now if John only had a soul I should not want to spend my days in accumulating expensive trifles Leah sighed resignedly Which means I suppose that you have met some man with a soul Beware of him Clare souls are horribly dangerous things I cannot beware of him he is too beautiful Mrs Lethbridge looked ecstatic Fancy caring for a beautiful man scoffed the sensible one ssr know It agreed Clarice I always thought I preferred the athletic type but Svenreskl is so overwhelming His hair and those fierce wild eyes make one forget his shoulders and lack of height Leah sat up peremptorily Dont you pretend to tell me she retorted that you have succumbed to the evil Influence of that illbred little piano player But I am telling you just that Leah darling Now dont be a horrid cat He is rather crazy about me too He said my throat was like the first flush of dawn How could a woman help loving a man capable of such delicious compliments Imagine John ever say ing anything nice like that I cannot iinagine Johns ever being such a fool sniffed Miss Atlielstane He would throw the a check across the table and say I was looking nice enough to deserve a new frock That is Johns vulgar habit Do you ever toss back the check Inquired Leah Of course not he wouldnt take It and besides I make 1C a rule never to fuss over money matters PoorJohn But what do you want me to do about this Idiotic affair You must go with me to his apart ment Clarice Now dont shout like that and stare as if I was suggesting something shockirig I am extremely Interested In a marl of great genius and nothing is more natural than that I should desire to see him among his own familiar belongings in his home John would not mind a bit I feel sure he always gives nie my own way Then he can go with you to canon Svepreskl- Clarlie assumed an expression of patient tolerance

forces for the welldeserved lecture which circumstances seemed to de mand but catching sight of a thought ful look In the eyes of Clari e she paused doubtfully I think it will be all right to take Amelie Of course she will talk to the other servants but who cares for kitchen gossip Leah sank back vanquish dIYou are the most impossible creature on earth she scolded But why An aching heart like a drooping flower will yearn for its sunY Bosh When do you wish to make this pious pilgrimage Tomorrow afternoon if you have nothing else to do I have a thousand things more Im a1IL You darling clarice smothered her friend with effusive caresses It will be just too romantic for anything and perfectly proper also with you along Indiscretion could not live within a thousand miles of you and If there is anything I do love It Is to be thrilled and on my good behavior aIr at the same time You silly little madcap murmured Leah helplessly Of courge I am but I am also pretty and quite Irresistible ClariceI ended with such a funny little her Head that Leah was forced to laugh and began to enter into the spirit of their adventure The next day at the conventional hour for drinking tea twavery well groomed smartly gowned young women descended from a most correct brougham before the entrance or a fashionable apartment store Once inside the shop the smaller and more frivolous looking of the cOQ pIe seized her companions arm and hurried her through to a rear entrance which led upon a shabby side street The girls turned down town passing several tenements which Leah regard ed with evident disgust At the cor ner pf the block a dingy graystone flathouse raised Its five stories into the air with the seeming effect of be ing better than its neighbors Not a remarkably prepossessing place commented Leah Oh Svenreskl would never live In one of our new ornate gilt and mar saIdILethbridge lifting her dainty skirts preparatory to ascending the stairs Leah silently thought that she ndmarbleoilcloth and wood stained to resemble widen oak but she saved her breath for the climb before them five long steep flights of steps At the top Clarice paused with up lifted hand Hark His voice she whispered ecstatically but In another momont her expression changed to one of be wilderment HIs yolce was raised in snarling accents plainly Indicative of illtern per Two loaves of bread he shrieked and then repeated this statement In a still louder toneHVhat could any reasonable woman flo with two big loaves on one little day One was a stale loaf father and I got It to stuff your goose You remember you had to have goose At the word father Clarice seized Leaks wrist with a dramatic gesture Of course I had to have goose How could I play and enchant all the sillies If I have not just such viands jas my delicate appetite craves But because I am dainty in my tastes difficult at table is no reason why you Should squander my few poor headearned dollars on bread and salt and such things as I care not for he screamed and the girls could hear him stamping up and down the room within By this time Leahs astonishment had given way to mirth von have hardly chosen an opportune moment

notwithstanding we are certainly justifyable in the statement that the moral condition of Lebanon is yery much improvedsince saloons have been voted out During the existence of the saloons the city paid out an average of pearly 30 per month for meals furnished to the prisoners in the sweatbox i but since the last day of last April when the saloons closed their doors the money paid out fortnis pur pose has be decreasedtHowever was cr at the regular meeting of the council last week the officers reported only two arrests during the month of February and a bill was presented for only fifteen centsj for meals furnished to prisoners We would suggest that i would be a good idea to have that bill photographed and printed on post cards for souveniers The indications are r that the diligent work of the temperance people assisted by the officers an- grandjury d is having its effect in get ting rid of the illegal sale of intoxicants and thistshould be art encodrage ment to them to keep up the good work until success crowns their efforts I Taylor Enquirer Because we happenr know that Bradley is a corrupt personal character and ecause we are plainspoken in our disapproval of his election to the Senate on that ac count some of our Republican friends have jumped at the conclusion that the Enquirer of last week attacked the Re publican fparty Now if you will read carefully what was said you will find that the party was commended Rep resentative Ifarrott was elected as a Republican and his duty was to vote for the Republican nominee Senator Jar vis was elected by a combination of Republicans i and whiskey people and his t duties in political matters was to them first so no one has a right to criticize the votes he has cast in these matters electlOnItojjmmoral character The Enquirer is not here for the benefit of any political party or any politician neither shall it be used for any particular religious denomination but its policy shall be as has already been stated vigilance for the moral and material welfare of the peo pIe of Taylor county first anji our State next We will be found praising the good and condemning the evil act of the highand low but especially the high and if any man wants to condemn us for this course we shall consider it an honor y Kentucky Stat Journal Accord ing to Editor Wa1tonof the Kentucky State Journal four of the Democrats who voted against Beckham ought to be hung General Basil Duke and Gen earl S B Buckner ought to go off and die and every Republican in the State ought to be shot Thus saith Editor Curran of the Maysvifle
