by a patriotic sense of luti + and that they were really en deavoring to bring about better condi al tions It is only tair to give our friends the enemy credit for honesty in thistl instance At the time these denuncia tiprfsWere s6 emphatically and persist ently chronicled by the Republican cIpress and spoken in words of fire byt Republican orators it was generally be lieved by many peopl that there was truth in the charge but since the Republicans i have been in office they have fodhd these useless offices to be very usefulf 7Trnd With smiling alacrity have proceeded to reach out and rake inthe coin of the reaiminsDiring emoluments of useless officeand- tto whistle and wink and tosay Nay Nay when in their own language some felloW proclaims that an office useless officeshould be abolished To those of our friends who by rea son of 4hat overwhelming patriotism and that insatiable desire to seeecon omy practiced in the State arid nation voted the Republican ticket last fall in order that useless offices might be abolished twe direct attention to this plank from the Democratic National platform Coincident with the enormous in crease in expenditures there was a like addition to the number of officeholders During the past year 23784 were adI ded costing 16159000 and jn the six years of the Republican Administration the total number of new offices created aide from any commis sions has been S9319 entailing an ad ditional expendhure of nea ly seventy million as against only 10279 new offices created under the Cleveland and McKinley Administrations which involved an expenditure of only 6000 000 We denounce great and grow ing increase in the number of officeholders as not only unnecessary and wasteful but also as clearly indicating a deliberate purpose on the part of the administration to keep the Republican party in power at pubh expense b- yS thus increasing the number of its re tainers and dependents Such procedure we declare to be no less dangerous and corrupt than the open purchase of votes at the polls Bewildering indeed arfe these fig ures They are indisputable Behind themare mountains of facts and they certainly must be astounding to oar economical and patriotic brethren of the g o p who fought so valiantly for Republican supremacy in Kentucky justf because a lot of useless offices had toeen createdby Democrats as a reward of partisan service Now it can hardly be disputed that thefirea of economy burn in the breasts Qf these patriotsthese patriots oft useless office fame therefore may w we notall expect that they fall in line file into the voting booth and vote the t frr J t5 raT Democratic ticket next tall that 99 319 useless officesmay be abolished and the American people saved 70000000 an ually t AN OPPORTUNITY The Publicity plank of the Democrat C National platform will doubtless be looked upon with much favor by those I Republicans in Kentucky who have been crying out against fraudulent for the past dozen years In reedform giy s the entire Republican party Kentucky an opportunity to vote for principle as enunciated in their re cent gubernatorial platform but which was defeated in the Republican Nation l convention by a vote of 880 to 94 In writing of the Democratic and Re ul5lican platforms Mr Richard W nott of the Louisville st says In- orrparing the two platforms one is k first with their agreement JJ r Knott then proceeds to state in his own way what the Democratic and Re- ublican platform say upon the same sub jects Inisoma instances he makes the- milarity g very plain But the Republi can National convention made it impossi e for Mr Knott to invite comparison of- ublicjty planks therefore in his edi torial he ignores this important utter ance of the Democratic party andrc working out ideas of his own he proceeds to create weaknesses in thei Democratic structure Then in his usual emphatic manner he calls attenir on to the detormity of the child of which he isthe father The failure of the Republican nation convention to adopt the Publicity plank is a plain acknowledgement that hat party intends to go into the market with corruption fiinciapd bid for votes 131the ovprwhelmingyoteof- t880 to 94 the delegates In that cohven ion said tothe worlduWe are goingS to debauch the ballot box with money contributed to our party by the trust nagnatesthat soulless gang that hfst preyed upon the purses of the and the laborer like hungry fUTmerlt for a quarter of a century Let the shouters of jGiyil Liberty JJ ho for the past decade have made the welkins of Kentucky ring with cries ofstop thief fall in line arid vote with a party that declares in ringing words that it is opposed to the debauchery of the ballot to coercion and to al of those unrighteous methods employed by thugs and ward heelers Mr Richard W Knott ought to be fheI first man to enlist for battle u inQis11putably inK out from the depthsof his tortured soul for Civil Liberty We congratulate the Republican del egates who assembled convention last year adopted the following plank a unanimous vote There should be complete publicity concerning the expenditure of money for political campaigns and a lawi aCjcbuntingmanagers of all sums of money collect ed for political purposes The Sun also congratulates the Re publican voters who approved this plank and since their party in Nation al convention has practically taken a stand for dishonest elections we offer to them a place in the ranks of the Democratic party where they can fight for a principle to vhich they but re cently pinned their faith THE PROHIBS The Prohibitionists will meet in Na4 tional convention in Columbus Ohio this week and will nominate Ta capdi datefor President and VicePresident It is given out that the Prohibitionists will refuse to endorse the Leaguebecause the AntiSaloon Lea gue refuses vto endorse theProhibition ists The Prohibs doubtless feel that theyIare justified in their refusul to hand a teat to an organization that has handed them several lemons W r tJ tc as n 4 THE SCHOOL LAW iIs During the past week or tendays the new school law has been freely disz cussed by Washington county people who are deeply interested in the ad yancemeht of our schools and in the- nwelfare of the children who attend the schools The report has gained circulation inr some sections of the county that thes new law makes the coeducation of the aces or mixed scnools possible To set the minds of those people at ease who have arrived at this erroneous con lusion allow us to say that the Con stituti n of Kentucky forbids any such coalition arid that before such conch tions can exist iwill be necessary tos change the Constitution There are others who contend th ttthe new law while it does not permit mixed schools is a long stride in that Direction consequently these peoplet vevOrelyclusion is arrived at becausejf the nh struc on that is placed upon a para braphlows Any person shall be eligible to this office of school trustee who is over twentyone years of age and who has been a resident of the subdistrict for flforeead and write as shown by a certifi ate of five reputable citizens of the subdistrict and all male persons over years of age who shall have resided n a school subdistrict for sixty daysn next before an election shall have the ightto vote at such election It would seam that the meaning oft the above paragraph is clear and that negroes as weiUas whites shallnot only be entitled to vote for school trust theyIwill also be eligible to the office of school trustee and may haye their names placed on the ballot and be vo ed for in white districts If such con struction is correct it is asserted by some people that in case the negroes in any school dIvision should succeed in a majority Of the trustees tbeYCoUld employ a negro teacher to each in a white school Now iif the- o law permits these things it cannot be denied that it is a stepa long stride rin the direction of the coeducation of the races But some of the Springfield lawyers give it tag their opinion that such construction is cont trary to the intention and etter of the law and that negroes are not entitled to a vote for trustees in white districts Yet it contended by not a feW people that the paragraph from section 3 is plain and that it can riot be construed n any other Way than that all male persons over 121 years of age whcI shall have resided in school subdistrict for sixty days ext before an election shall have the light to vote in such election As an evidence that the people arec considerably dis turbed over some fea tures of the new law we print thefolc lowing letter re eived by the editor of The Sun a few lays ago Springfield Hy July 11 1908Mr J Rogers Gore Dear SirAs repre sentative trustees of three different counties were with us lately discussing the new school law each one saying he was gointr to his County Seat to make inquiry about taking the vote regardless of color We exclaimed Where is the editor of The Sun that he hasc not explained the law to the common people Is We going to let ntgro equality be put u on us without warning us Now if jt doesnt mean negro equality please tell Us what it does mean Take the census regardless ot color take thcQte regardless of col or We have trusted the editor of The Sun to keep us posted upon such matters as the armer has little time to look closely into such subjects But it seems the edit r of The Sun is going- to keep quiet ana let the election come us withixedvoting Now please Mr Gore let The Sunshine upon this subject this teek for the saka of all whitepeople Signed A READER OF FHE SUN Hardly a week passes that the editor of The Sun does not receive some sort of anonymous communication Some times the writer giyes us friendly and fatherly advice sometimes hepolitely but emphatically tells us to go to hlI while betwixt the lines we readin our excruciating and awestricken state the Frightful and Frightening Picture of Terrible Wrath Others of these i 11v t z 1J1 tI tr kii mysterious epistles flame with praise leadus as it were to the Crystal Fountains whose waters neath the Radience of the Rainbow dance in daz c ling splendor and cause us to turn our eyes to the blue heavens and thank the Good Lord for the friends we have It has always been our Custom to ig or anonymous communications but the letter herewith printed treats of a eal live subject therefore we give it paze and notice In reply to that part of our friends letter in which we are accused of neg ligence we have only to say that we re cently printed the school law and more than once have printed comments upon the law As to the writers negro equality cae we believe he is unnecessarily apprehensive though it is admitted hat he is right in asking for light Upon the subject of the election of school i trustees We also desire to say that if henew school law allows negroes to otein white districts that our friend every reason to be appiehensivej We promise to be watchful and if it ecomes possible for the editor iof The Sun to throw light upon this puzzling question he will be found letting the a light shine At present the subject is too deep- sor us The lawyers are scratching their heads over the problem and do not give definite answers The Super b intendent of Public Instruction does ot place a construction upon that par agraph of the law quoted above further an inference of remote meaning and the Attorney General is as dumb as the lips of death Thats the way he matter stands at present When the Tooth of Wisdom gnaws into the understanding of the Sages and places sufficient insight into their gray matter to eblethem to un ravel the tangle and to explain the meaning of the new school law wewill kneel at their shrines ando plead with them to mall an explanation mtO our head Then we will rush into print with big bold flaming headlinesthe toweupon which burneth the Beacon f Er lightenment olTHOF ED GROANo

PATRO GEJ We condemn as a violation of the spirit of our institutions the action qf the prekent Chief Executive in using the patronage of his highoffice to se cure the nomination of one of his Cabinet officers A forced succession in the presidency is scarcely less repugnant r public sentiment than is life tenure in that office No good intention on the part of the Executive andno virtue the one selected can justify the estab lishment of a dynasty The right of the people to freely select their officials is inalienable and cannot be delegated Democratic National Platform Martin R Preston

conyict and it Would be a serious mis take to elect him President t 1 jy j i UIi PUBLICITY OF CAMPAIGN CONTRIBUTIONS We demand Federal legislation for ever terminating the partnership which has existed betweenthe corporations ot the country and the Republican party under the expressed or implied agreement that in return for the contribution f great sums of money wherewith to purchase elections they should be allowed to continue substantially unmolested in their effortsto encroach upon the rights of the people Any reasonable doubt as to the exist ence of this relation has been forever dispelled by the sworn testimony of witnesses examined in the insurance investigation in New York and the open admission unchallenged by the Repub han National Committee of a single individual that he himself at the per ildatefQrquarter of a million of dollars to be used in a single State during the cbs Inor1derforall time we demand the passage of statute punishing with imprisonment any officer Of a corporation who shall either contribute on behalf ofor cOn ent to the contribution by a corporation of any money or thing qf value toe used in furthering the election ot a President or Vice President of the Uni ted States or of any member of the Congress thereof We denounce the action of tHe Repub lican party having bomplete control cf the Federal Government for its failureI to pass the bill introduced ini Congress to compel the publication of the names of contributors and thej amounts contributed toward campaign funds and point to the evidence of their insincerity when they sought by an absolutely irrelevant and impossible amendment to defeat the pissage of IImtentionthe coming contest with vast sums ofr money wrested from favorseeking corporations we call attentioh to the fact thatthe recent Republican Nati nal Convention at Chicago refused when the plank was presented to it to- eclare against such practices We pledge the Democratic party to he enactment of a law corporation contributing to aJampaign- fund and any individual from cOntribut ng ah amount above a reasonable mini mum and providing forthe publication before election of all such contributions above a reasonable maximumD mo cratic National Platform ECONOMY IN ADMINISTRATION The Republican Congress in the ses ion just ended has made appropria amounting to 1008000000 ex ceeding the total expenditures of the fiscal year by 90000 000 and- eavinga defieitof more than 60000000 for the fiscal year We denounce the heedless waste of the peoples money which has resulted in this appalling increase asa shameful violation of all prudent conditions of Government as no less a crime against the millions of working men and women from whose earnings the great proportion of these colossal sums must be extorted through excessive tariff exactions and other indirect methods It is not surprising that in the face of thi shocking rec ord the Republican platform contains 1no reference to economical administra tion or promise thereof in tfie futute We demand that a stop be put to this frightful extravagance and insist upon the strictest economy inv every department compatible with frugal and effici ent administration Democratic Nati onal Platform ARBITRARY POWER OF SPEAKER s1 The House of Representatives Wa designed by the fathers ofthe Consti tutlon toVe the popular bi iicliof our t Government responsive to the public will The House of Representatives as controlled in recent years bytheRepub iican party has ceased to be a delibera tive and legislative body responsive to the wil of a majority offts member but has come under the absolute dp miniatipn Of the Speaker who has en tire control of its deliberations andrpowers of legislation We have observed with amazement the popular branch of our Federal Gov ernment helpless to obtain either the consideration or enactment of measures desired by a majority of its members Legislative government becomes a failure when one member in the person of the Speaker is more powerful thkn the entire boay A We demand that the House of Repre sentatives shall again become a dehb erative body controlled by a majority lof the peoples representatives and not 7 the Speaker and we pledge ourselves to adopt such rules and regulations to govern the House of Representatives as will enable a majority of its members to direct its deliberations and control legislation Democratic National Plat formIt The Democratic Landidate For VicePresident f Indianapolis July 18John W Ken was born December 20 1849 at the yife t lage of Alto

Tariff A number of Republican newspapers in r the United States which have steadfastly maintained the principle of protection as adapted to the needs of our producers and repudiated the prin ciple of free trade as inimical to those n have joined in demand spirited and bordering on the hysterical that the duty on wood and int paper b abolished immediately because 11Cin the main the demand for free pulp and free paper is promoted by fre traders Thee publishers who are- mbst active in the movement areJ ei her outspoken free trade Democrats wiio consistently profess the belief that protection is robbery or else of that less Ijonest and tolerable cult who rafisk their free trade under the specious guise of tariff reform and run their papers for free trade all the time except for the three months im m diatelY preceding a presidential el Republida-nplatform and nominees classes nothing else perhaps is tot be expected than that they would embrace every opportunity to show that protection is a fraud and Is to bej supported in all cases where it does ndt touch the supporters own pocketbook iaut it is themost palpable kind of folly and dishonesty to support a tariff for and then to advocate a suspension of its application to ones own business If the tariff on pulp an paper adds to the cost of paper witbouta corresponding and justifiable benefit to domestic producers then uppb what ground can it be maintained that any any other item In the tariff shbuld be maintained for the benefit of the producer when it addkto the price paid by the consumer indianapblls Star 1 Prospects of Tariff Reform The Washington Herald has been studying recent Republican declara tio is for tariff reform only to ibe dis conrjged considering the last the Pennsylvania utterance which it thifiks marks no advance whatever over McKinleyism or IJingleylsm at th worst It says T Inhere is observabl with the ap projach of the presidential campaign a progressive degeneration of Republican tart revision sentiment Everybody now declares for revision but not for the sort of revision that was originally denYanded by they tariff reduction wing of the party Each state platform gets farier and farther away from the tariff reform idea and bolder and bold er h advocacy 0f a paId and naked protectionism until in the Pennsyl vania document 1s promised the true and unadulterated gospel of standpat IsmtIf the Pennsylvania delegation forq s from the national convention the privilege of Dictating the Repub licaff tariff plank what encouragement will that plank afford to the large num ber of independent Republicans who believe that the protective system contains some hoary wrongs that ought to be righted The Springfield SHD 100 Per year r r B His Fiddle His tender sweet lifestorys told

himself to get nervous worried or angry Effects of the Tariff The Albany Argus urging the need of tariff reform calls attention to the present status thiis It is a very old rule of supply and demand that when business is Slack and we are in a period of depression the prices of commodities will drop- automatically to a lower level Thus there Is a certain law of compensation But at the present time there is no drop in prices but on the contrary the prices of food clothing building material etc are maintained on the same war basis which they reached in the highest period of the preceding flush times This is due to the fact that the Republican party has enacted and kept unrevised on the statute books the tariff schedules and other special privilege and class legislation under which monopolies and combines apd corners of all sorts have been created superseding the natural laws so that even a panic widespread Idleness and lack of employment and a most seri oils abatement of business all over the country have note changed the prices of trust products which the consumer must buy in order to live Brutal Finance In the face ofa declining revenue the Republican majority in congress has dug into the great treasury surplus at a rate which will make the treasury 125000000 worse off by June 30 1908 thanit would be if last years conditions were duplicated this yearAnd yet with aH this lavish out pouring from the treasury It still holds more than 200000000 for which there is no present use the taking of which from the pockets of the people has needlessly helped to Impoverish them As Ellis H Roberts former of the United States has said sue brutal finance would not be tolerated in any other civilized country on earth It Would not be practiced In this court try by

amid scenes of frenzied enthusiasm The result came after an allnightr session which was kept in a constant state of turmoil up to the culminating moment when the Nebraska leader was proclaimed the choice of the convention as the Democratic standard bearer The nomination was made on the first and only ballot the vote standing William J Bryan 895 GovJohn A Johnson 46 Judge George Gray 59k absent or not voting 8 total 1006 The announcement of the vote was the signal for a wild demonstration equaling in turbulence it not m dura tion the recordlir akin display which on Wednesday afternoon greeted the first mention ot Mr Bryans name in the convention The scene within the amphitheater at the moment the nomination was made was one of stirring animation From pit to dome the vast building was packed with 10000 people thinned out in the remoter galleries after hours of waiting and the intense discomforts of the hot night It was a spectacle of grandiose pro portions tier on tier and gallery on gallery of agitated forms the women in white the delegates massed below many of them coatless a myriad of fans fluttering to combat the stifling heatand close atmosphere of this long pentup exuberant multitude ever ready to spring into feverish outbreaks Of enthusiasm and everywhere the blaze of flags bunting and patriotic de vices and the enveloping folds of Old Glory Twice before the throng had bee moved into a mad ecstacy first by the speech placing the name of Bryan in nomination and again when that o Goy Johnson of Minnesota was pro posed but thes manifestations paled before the culminating outburst ofj emotion r As the announcement of the Nebras kans actualnoqtination was made the whole assemblage rose en masse wav ing flags handkerchiefs newspapers hats and coats

the added din of shrieking horns the roar of megaphones and the strains of the band playing an exultant anthem When for a moment order could be secured out of this tempestuous chaos of demonstration State after State which had at first recorded its vote for Johnson or Gray fell into nine with the overmastering column and the nomination was made unanimous and by acclamation The taking of the vote had been fol lowed with breathless interest as State aftertState swelled the Bryan strength When New York was reached in the allof States the announcement of Chief Murphy eventyeight votes for Bryan

repeated itself today as regards the second place on the ticket and the old Democratic war horses recalled the fact with enthusia mJMr Kern received the first news of his nomination from the correspondent of the CourierJournal With becoming modesty he did not attend the conven tions session knowing that Indiana would place his name before the convention The next Vice President had left his room in the Albany and was mingling with the crowd in Denvers street Upon being informed of the conyen tipnsselaction Mr Kern said I am gratified and feel honored be yond expression at my nomination We could have carried Indiana this year without placing a Hoosier on the ticket Inrthis fight the Democratic party through its platform and the nomination of Mr Bryan for the presidency

delegates had begun to arrive and tell him of his nomination Kern stationed himself at the door A long line was formed and far into the night the nom inee was kept busy shaking hands with the Democratic hosts Two men declined the vice presidency today They were Judge Gray of Del eware and Ollie James of Kentucky Either could have been nominated Gray declined because he could not af ford to give up his life position on the bench James reason was that he realized that the candidate should come from a doubtful State Kern was theretore selected Before the convention met there was Ia meeting in the room of Mr Charles Bryan Dahlman and Brown of Ne braska wore its principal figures They were in constant communication with Mr Bryan on the Lincoln end of the longdistance telephone Mr Bry n
