INSTRUCT FOlt COX. An overwhelming majority of Democrats throughout the State are In favor of an Instructed delega tion for Gov. Cox from this State to the National Democratic convention, while a few are advocating that the delegates go As real Democracy means control hy the majority, tho majority sentiment should rule. Blderate expenditure or downright extravagance. Every thinking person knows that present conditions can not continue very long.

A break Is bound to come, and those best qualified to judge predict that when it rloos come this country will have to pass through a period of hard times. Therefore It is tho part of wisdom to save now -when the opportunity Is at hand. In the parlance of the day: "Save while the saving Is good!" FEOPLK AWAKENING. Prom every part of tho country comes the news that there Is growing Indignation against tho reign of the Prohibition fanatics, and tho chief protosters aro our soldier boys who realize that they were nover given a voice In tho matter. Neither were the voters at large, as tho Prohibition politicians bluffed our legislators at Washington into supporting tholr fanatical measure.

YOUR TAX HILL. We hope that every taxpayer in tho city and county will look at his tax- receipt he votes this fall. This will give him tho very best idea of the "economy" -which tho MoTrow and Smith administrations are practicing. Morrow and the Kepubllran tliket were elected bo-cause tho people took thorn at their word that expenditures would be cut and useless offices abolished. Insted taxes have been raised enormously, and the pledge to abolish useless offices either evaded or deliberately violated.

We do not believe that our 'citizens will be very anxious to continue voting the Republican ticket when they see tholr tax receipts In ho face of a solemn promise of strict economy. Both assessments and tax rates havo boen increased and extravagance has prevailed In Louisville for which the people must Buffer. RELIGIOUS EDUCATION. William It. Wirt, who Is Superintendent of the Gary public schools and originator of tho "Gary sys torn," and who should know what ho is talking about, lays stress upon tho necessity of religious education.

Ho took an awful fall out of those who oppose Catholic parochial schools whon ho said: "If tho churches would spend as much money on tho religious education of children as thoy do on con versions of adults, there wouldn' bo so many old sinners to convert What tho churches spend to convert a sixty year old sinner would tako care of the religious training of 100 children." Catholic education saves for tho Church, the State and tho child, and makes men and women upright and truly American citizens. Thereforo tho parochial schools are doing tho better work and deserve support. Witness the results In the publlo educational contests held hero and announced this week.

ARSU1U) DEMAND. Tho Tennessee Annual Conference of tho Methodist Ministers and Laymen (wants legislation through Congress that would make the Government and peoplo of tho country stand still from Saturday until Monday. They have prepared and asked Sentaor McKellar to Introduce a bill that would prohibit every form of amusement or recreation, to stop all interstate trains, Interstate traffic, interstate freight, interstate news, interstate mail, Interstate telephonic communication, interstate telegraphic conrrauncatons and Sunday newspapers, which the Senator declines to do, for tho reason that he belioves "that to undertake to restore an observance of tho Sabbath Federal law; without inculcating tho wisdom and duty of Sabbath observance In tho peoplo at home, seems cortalnly to bo tho "wrong method of approach." While tho Congress will not have an opportunity to pass upon tho drastic bill suggested by Senator McKollar's constituents', it Is regarded as morally certain that tho spirit which Insisted upon bono dry prohibition, sooner or later, will demand other legislation of like character further interfering with personal llborty.

It tho Earl of Granard Is appointed a special act of Parliament would bo necessary to enable him to act as Viceroy because ho Is a Catholic, and under the laws of England neither tho King, nor the Prime Minister1 or the Vlcoroy of Ireland can bo a Catholic.
