This issue is pretty well filled with political advertising. We trust our readers will read it ail and examine every man’s claims. And will you please pardon us for crowding out so much good reading matter. You know we have to take advertising when we can get it. It may be a long time before we get a shot at as much good matter again. It will be two years before we get a chance at another primary and we ask the indulgence of our readers. The pleasure of turning out job after job of high grade printing as fast as good presses and fast motors bould run has been ours for the past two months. We have been crowded with orders by people who want the very best thing in printed matter. We put the personal touch into every piece of printed paper and it brings the customer back to this office when he wants the real article in printed matter. We carry a full In circuit court Saturday, John Lampley was given a life sentence for killing Tom Madden at No. 7 mines recently. Lampley claimed that Madden had entered his home and that he killed him for his interference. The killing took place at the wash house of No 7 mines some weeks ago when Lampley stuck a pick into Madden’s head and then struck him over the head with the pick after he had been mortally wounded. Both men are colored Lampley has always borne a good reputation previous to the killing A party of gentlemen from Patoka were here Friday inspecting our electric lights. They contemplate the Public Utilities company building a plant in Patoka and came here to in spect cur plant. They were much impressed with the system. Mr. Sharp, Mr. Bosard and Mr. McNeal of the Public Utilities have visited their town and looked the situation over. We found the Patoka gentlemen very pleasant and agreeable, all intent upon one idea, that of boosting their town. The crowd was composed of Charley Stenmer, Earl Turpin, Charley Lankford, Clarence Milburn, and G. B. Bingham.

A circular has reached republican workers here which seems to have At Petersburg a witness appeared on the stand in a drunken condition in a murder case and swore he had not had a single drink of liquor. The presiding judge had him arrested for perjury. At the trial a juiy gave him from two to fourteen years in prison besides a $100 fine, after being out fifteen minutes. Judging from grand jury instructions during the past year or two something of this kind is liable to happen in Daviess county. The voluntary liar on the witness stand in a court justice deserves no mercy. He is tampering with the pillars on which organized government rests.—-Washington Democrat.

Scales of Boonville, has withdrawn from the congressional race leaving the contest for the democratic nominati n to Hon. Arthur H. Taylor of this county and Hon. George K. Denton, of Evansville. However. Dr. Scales’ name will appear on the primary ballot as he did not withdraw in the time prescribed by law for candidates to withdraw. Dr. Scales could not make the race and retain his place on the tax board and he c^ose to remain on the board rather than take the chance of being defeated in the race for the nomination for congress. In a signed ^letter published in the Evansville Courier, Dr. Scales sets forth his reasons for withdrawing from the race but did not leave any hint of where his friends will throw J^heir support as between the remaining candidates for the ^lace. They will probably go both ways. been gotten out by one of the republican U. S. senatorial candidates to belittle James E. Watson. It points out how much Watson ran behind.Taft at the election in 1908 and belittles him in every way possible. While this is none of our fight we mention it only to call the attenton of our readers to the fact that next Tuesday is primary day and that between now and then there are likely to be many belated circulars sent broad cast to this or that man. Such tactics are not worthy of the attention of any voter whether it comes from your party or ours. If a candidate has anything to tell the people about his opponent let him do so in tim^ that the candidate may have an opportunity to defend himself, should any part of the statement not be correct. They were Miss Lucy Chamness who was married to James Carre.iter. Margaret Dearing and Leonard Chambers was the other couple. They are all prominent young psople of Velpen. The Dispatch extends them a happy and prosperes journey thi’ough life.

May 11 and 12. the Augusta, Ind., February 28, 1916. —As to the civil war breaking at the Big Four mine at Boonnville by 1 and John Bush going there I will say our object in going there was becau'se miners from other locals sent a resolution to our local asking us to witb-l hold our dues and assessments from the district and national officers. There was a case pending for almost four months and yet hadn’t been decided. We did not know what the case was and I and John Bush Were appointed as a committee to go to the Big Four mine at B )onville to find out what the case was. And as to us mabfng vioj|ei^ threats against the Big Four mihera we did not and as to WUIiam H. Rai.^ of Princeton our district board rije nbw ' as to knowing about it, he knew nothA ing about it nor did he either know that we were goin^. We happened to meet up with him at Bocjnville on an other case at another mine ánd wre asked him to go out to the Big Four mine with us, and we did not recommend ourselves as delega|tes. We told the committee at the Big Four tnines that we were from Hartwell.<- DAN COOK. We published an article from metropolitan press last week concerning the trouble at the Boonville coal mines and carelessly did not give proper credit. The article was sent to the Evansville Courier from Boonville which intimated that the miners from Ayrshire were taking a hand in the trouble at '^he Boonville mines. The article was published in this paper on account of the rediculousness of it more than any other thing. The mii-ers of this section knew nothing of the trouble until the matter came out in the newspapers and they had not thought of taking any hand in the Bcoaville affair. The men mentioned from this county are not employed at Ayrshire and if they had been would have made little difference as the Ayrshire miners were not concerned in the Boonville troubles. And the entire matter was overdrawn and amounted to about one-tenth of what the metropolitan accounts made of it. No community needs the parent-teacher club worse than this one. For many years this community has not Democrats of Pike county should remember to vote for C. D. Henke next Tuesday for joint representative. Not as a hope of electing him but because he is a candidate from Pike county. Remember that for years and years we have been represented in the state legislature by a man from Dubois county. Different men of that good county have represented us and we have had none of our own to represent us in the halls-of the State legislature. 'Tbis has been the case because we were linked with them and they always claimed the man because they had the power. It has been a case of might making right. The last legis-latore took us away from Dubois county and linked us with Knox. They have the power on us too and will likely use it. With no small amount of persuading Mr. Henke was induced to enter the race for representative in nWer to represent the county. Knox county has two candidates, both excell-i^nt men, but t|ie thing - with us is to iremember to vote for our local man ájs a matter of home pride. It may be that after awhile our new neighbor wiB recognize that we take some pride in our local people and would appreciate having 09a representative in the State Legislature in this generation. And vote for Mr. Henke with that understanding and vote no second choice. The high school play given at Star Theatre Tuesday night was a success in every way. The comedian features of the play we:e well developed, Roma Stinson as Joel and Mabel Thompson as Sally brought laughter from all parts of the house. Their appearance on the stage was watched with much interest. Janavie Pipes, the old maid with her train of lovers created intense interest from the beginning to their final exits. Helen Rust presented the part of the heroine in a very pleasing manner. As an amateur she is not easily 'excelled. The motr ^Séflous phases of the drama were presented in a very creditable manner by Basil Johnson and Hazel Comer. Adolph Chandler, although by nature not a vil Han by any means was equal to the occasion. Horace Barnett presented the part of the hero and Oda Dearing appeared as a traveling salesman. The orchestra furnished some excellent music It was an evident fact that the full houje appreciated the play. against the been awake to the interests of schools. About all the time the teachers have any intercourse with the parents is when some irate one feels called upon to give the teacher a “calling” for some correction of his child. There has been more or less of a spirit of antagonism between the teacher and parent which has not lightened the teachers’ burden in any respect. A movement has been on foot here for the establishment of ,a parent-teacher club and the thing has not been born on account of the inability of the trustee to furnish a place of meeting. Trustee Bee is planning to light the school building, a part of it at least, at tim earliest possible moment and then it is predicted that we will have a parent-teacher club which will go a long way toward bringing the partons and teachers to a better understanding of the work of educating the youth of the community- There is no other place to meet—no other plsce Is the correct place—but the school house. There, surrounded by the atmosphere of the school, problems can and should be threshed out. It will bring the coin-muntty in closer touch with one of it’s greates institutions—the public school and it should and will be pushed to this end as soon ss the trustee can make The case of" Paul Plost Winslow Gas company occupied the attention of the court Wednesday Md Thursday forenoon.
