The Somerset Journal
The Oldest Democratic Newspaper in the Mountains of Kentucky
Feese & Williams
Somerset, Ky., Friday, March 5, 1920.
A giant oak has fallen in the forest of human activities, for WILLIAM PULASKI
WALTON passed into the great beyond last week at his home in Lexington. A
proud Virginian by birth, a brave Kentuckian by adoption, he lived a simple
but industrious life, and leaves this Commonwealth richer and better than it
was when he came to locate among us. Many years ago he pitched his tent in
our sister city of Stanford, where he vigorously embarked in the newspaper
work. He made the Interior Journal known and honored throughout Kentucky.
Under his able editorship, that paper was, as it is now, a credit to our
beloved state. He had the courage of his convictions, which were always deep
rooted and to him well founded. He stood for right and boldly and
unhesitatingly fought that which was wrong. He was an aggressive writer of
strong thought and clear expression. A Democrat of the old school, he
sincerely believed in the merit of his party and the virtue of its many
deeds. Always plain spoke, he was quick to discern the motives of men and
prompt to repel deceit, yet ever ready to commend honesty and industry. In
his going, journalism has lost a star, Lexington a citizen of character and
Kentucky a son to whom all men could point with pride and pleasure.

"Comrades! Drop this dirty work. Turn your guns on your real enemies, the
sweaters and capitalist. Come with us in the far nobler struggle to
establish the triumph of labor the world over. Signed N. Lenin."
"East and Central Europe is aflame with the revolt. The exploiting class has
in some countries fallen, and in others are on the point of falling. The
dawn of the day of Labor's emancipation has come!"
"You have arms. You know hot to use them. Will you, like slaves, use them
in defense of your master, or will you use them to help your class be free?
If the former, then you know that you will meet with determined resistance of
the united revolutionary people of East and Central Europe, and History will
be your Judge. If the latter, then here's a hearty welcome into the ranks of
"We want you to understand that every country in the world - including your
own - can become a socialistic state, a workmen's country, if only it follows
the Russian example. Every nation in the world - including the "yankee race"
can become a really free nation, if it only does away with the trusts, the
money lords and the bloodthirsty exploiters. It is up to you American
soldiers to do it! It is up to you to bring the great lesson of the Russian
Revolution home to your toiling and suffering brothers. It's up to you to
start it there - in your own America, you just start it - and your brothers
will follow you! You just dare! You have nothing to lose but your chains.
You have a world to gain. You just dare to take home with you the Red Banner
of the Revolution and inscribe upon it: Down with Capitalism! Long Live
Industrial Freedom! Long Live Socialism!"
"You probably would let us alone and go home, if your officers would let you.
But they do not intend to let your do so. You are under their orders, and
they are under the orders of "higher ups," and those are under the orders of
"still higher ups," etc. At the top of the whole pile are the wealthy
capitalists who want to get their greedy hands upon the mines and factories,
railways, etc., of Russia. That is the reason you are here to rob working
men and make millionaires richer. We know that you are bound, hand and foot
by discipline and have been in blind ignorance of what you were doing here or
why you came. The only way that you can do the descent thing is by breaking
the discipline that drives you to this crime against your own kind, the
working class. The war is over. There is no honest reason for you to submit
to military orders. You are not fighting German militarism. You are
submitting to it when you obey the commands of your own officer. You can
break away. We know that you can, for we did. You are powerful enough and
numerous enough to arrest the officers or to do with them what you please.
Or you can come over to us."
Republicans In Mass Convention Last Saturday Name Chairman and Committeemen.
The Republican mass convention held in Somerset last Saturday set a
precedent by naming the County Chairman and the thirty seven precinct
committeemen. This unusual procedure was fought by Attorney B.L. Waddle who
wanted the committeemen elected by the voters in each precinct and they in
turn elect a County Chairman, but his fight was of no avail for the crowd
present voted against his resolution. Judge James Denton offered the
resolution naming the Chairman and the precinct committeemen and Judge B.J.
Bethurum, F.I. Ross and J. Sherman Cooper made speeches in favor of the
resolution. They explained they were only carrying out the orders of the
party authorities who had written to each county asking that the election be
held this year in this manner. Henry Smith was elected Chairman of the
convention and W.F. Schooler, Secretary. Delegates were elected to the
district and state convention. C.I. Ross was re-elected County Chairman with
the following committeemen. Somerset No. 1, J.A. Coleman; Somerset No. 2,

Still Pecking Away For Oil. Joe Waddle tells the Journal that he had a
"fishing job" at one of the wells in this county last week, but now the
"fishing" is over and the machine is pecking away, going down deeper into
mother earth in search of the valuable green fluid. He also stated that his
company was well satisfied with the pending results in this county and was
confident by the time the blue birds begin to sing oil would be flowing
freely from Pulaski wells. MR. Waddle's attention is at present partly given
to some interests in Johnson and McGofflin counties where his company have
some very valuable holdings.
Disastrous Fire At Liberty. Fire which originated in J.R. Whipp's store at

institution offers. He brought with him a blue ribbon diploma which shows
that he answered every question that was asked him during his stay at the
institution. This young fellow was the first agricultural student to enroll
in the College of Agriculture from the mountains of Kentucky. There are
three there now from Pulaski county.
Good Roads. Bill Passes The Senate and Will Soon Become Law. Lots of Pike.

roads to be completed are Lincoln to McCreary, Rockcastle to Clinton,
Rockcastle to Russell, Lincoln to Wayne and Rockcastle to Casey. The bill
provides for over 3,000 miles of inter-county seat roads. The work will be
done by the state and federal government.

Rural Teachers Get Pay Raise. Frankfort, Ky., Another important measure in
the school program received final legislative action this morning when the
bill fixing rural teachers salaries at a minimum of $75 a month, which
already has passed the House, was passed by the Senate 20 to 2 without
amendment, those voting against it being Senators Carter and Rives. The bill
doe not affect teachers in independent graded school districts or in the
cities, but they are expected to receive benefit form it because of the
general increase which will result because of the already serious shortage of
First Prize In Essay Contest Is Won By Cora NORRIS of Somerset High School.
Miss Cora Norris, of the Somerset High School, won the first prize in the
Essay Contest conducted by the United States Army. The subject was "What are
the Benefits of an Enlistment in the United States Army?" The second prize
was won by Miss Florence Ogden, S.H.S., the third price went to Edith Ashurst
and the fourth to Jean Talbot, 7th grade. The papers were graded by a board
of three teachers of the High School and the winners were forwarded to
Louisville to the board there who will pick the best paper from over the
entire state. We publish the essay of Miss Norris which won the first prize.
We would like to have published them all but the lack of space would not
permit. "What Are the Benefits of an Enlistment in the United States Army?"
"During our participation in the World War every soldier boy was a hero. But
since the war is over a great many critics, mere Bolshevists, are ready to
knock the boys in khaki, and in fact, everything connected with the American
Army. But if these people would just stop and consider the wonderful
improvement along physical, educational and moral lines that the boys have
derived from their service in the army during the World Conflict, they would
be no longer knockers, but loyal boosters to help fill the depleted ranks of
Uncle Sam's Army. The advantages enjoyed by the Old Regular Army are not to
be compared to those offered by our modern college in khaki. The advantages
offered by this school to the young manhood of America could not be summed up
in four hundred words, so we shall only speak briefly of the chief benefits
derived from an enlistment in the U.S. Army. The first big advantage gained
by army life is that of physical development. No one can look at the solider
as he passes by with springy step, erect carriage, uplifted shoulders and
keen eyes without feeling he very presence of buoyant health, not to speak of
the physical beauty of such a figure. The educational advantages are
numerous. The physical training itself is educational along lines of health,
hygiene, care in dress and personal cleanliness and general deportment. The
opportunities for travel in the army brings the enlisted man in contact with
every phase of life, thus broadening and developing the mind. The very best
schools in the world, both classical and vocational, are maintained in the
American Army. The idea of Universal Militarism is slowly but inevitably
forcing its way into the minds of the educated people and those who have the
world's good at heart. The army is the only school in the world that has the
reputation of being able to make something out of nothing. It is the only
school that can remold a first class hobo into a strapping, robust,
well-trained citizen. Every young man, no matter what his station in life
may be, should put at least one years' training in the army. HE will find
himself one hundred percent better in every way, physically, educationally,
vocationally and morally, on coming out than when he went it. Then too, if
we should be plunged suddenly into another big war as we have just
experienced, we should not be as we were in the late war like the five
foolish Virgins whose lamps were dry when the bride groom came, but we should
be as the five wise ones, having our lamps all trimmed and ready. The only
way to insure universal peace is to have our army and all the available army
men trained to such a high point of militarism that the nations of the world
will know that we are ready and able to defend our God given rights of
Judge J. Sherman Cooper's friends are mentioning him as a candidate for
Congress two years hence. If the Judge should decide to run he would be a
hard man to beat.
WALTON. Col. W.P. Walton Passes Away At His Home In Lexington. Col. William
Pulaski Walton, widely known newspaper man and editor, died at his home in
Lexington Wednesday, February 25th. For years he conducted the Interior
Journal at Stanford and was for a number of years editor of the Morning
Democrat in Lexington. He was born in 1852. Col. Walton had been ill for
sometime. He was a brother of Mr. E.C. Walton, the present owner of the
Stanford Interior Journal.
Party at Nancy. The home of Harry Rogers, at Nancy, was the scene of much
enjoyment on February 29, when his mother, Mrs. Clara Rogers, reached her
77th birthday. Not withstanding the ground was covered with snow, fifty-two
friends assembled to shower her with presents and congratulations and partake
of the excellent dinner. While Mrs. Rogers is seventy-seven years of age,
she is young in spirit as those who have just attained their majority. Mrs.
Rogers came to Kentucky from Ohio about 30 years ago. Here's hoping that
Feb. 29, 1924 may find her enjoying the same good health as it present.
Donates Benches for Fountain Square. Dennie Gooch, the popular jeweler and
optician, has donated to the city one dozen nice benches for the fountain
square. These are very neat in construction and are decorated with a very
neat advertisement of his printed on each bench. Possibly Mr. Gooch saw the
necessity for this additional equipment for the fountain as evidence by the
large assembly of "loafers" each day who heretofore have been occupying the
concrete around the fountain, and as the loafing has to be done, we presume
he desires to make it as comfortable as possible for the many who follow this
unnecessary, valueless occupation from day to day. Doubtless, though, his
motive was very different and it was his wish to provide a seat for the aged
and decrepit, and those who may have a few moments to send on the beautiful
fountain to rest their weary bodies from hard toil.
"Rasin" Liquor Captured. Deputy Collector H.R. Saufley, of this city, Deputy
