town and is k fated with excellent pjwple t 0 NEW POINTS BROUGHT OUT The subject of Eld W K Azbills discourse at the Christian Church last Sunday forenoon was I shall be satis fied when I awake in thy likeness He brought out many new points of great interest to those who heard him An incident suggesting the subject afford ing some remarkable coincidences was that of a man who has just been called to Glasgow Scotland to receive a large inheritance on the condition that he present anexact copy of a photo graph attached to the will of his benefactor Mr Azbill brought out the comparison that there is a picture at tached to the Will of our Savior which each one must bring who would secure the great inheritance of the Christian believer To develop this thought he stated that there was a shadow on the claims of Jesus beginning with the story that Mary and Joseph told of the Divine conception and continuing throughout his ministry until all doubt of his divine legation was cleared away by his resurrection from the dead and and hence the apostles remark in the first of Romans that he was declared to be the son of God with power by the j resurrection from the dead This was the crowning essential evidence of His divinity the cardinal truth of the GospeL For this reason an ordinance was appointed to commemorate it and that ordinance is made an essential ev wouldtHe dwelt upon the likeness to his son ship which should characterize His fol lowers in all their demeanor aftertheir adoption as sons stating that submis sion to the ordinances which declars them to be his son at the time of res urrection from death to sin would be of no avail without the likeness to Christ in their living His conclusion was that those who expect to appear in his likeness here after must be like him in this present life I DIED August 24 at the home of B H Hol laday in Greer county Oklahoma Lou K Holl day in her 54th year She lightemomentLus a r more exceeding and eternal weight of glory This scripture read at her funeral sustained by the comforting hope of a blessed immortality beyond the grave affords the sweetest consolation that God in his infinite wisdom hath removed another dear one

oT tile Kepuoiicans were the issuance of 500000 in bonds and an increase In the tax rate 10 cents The bonds sold for a premium of 39071 and the 10 cents extra tax produced during their incumbency 200000 making a total of bond 11 and increased tax of 1739071 this additional large sum provided for them by legislative enactment they managed the states affairs so poorly that when the Democrats came into possession of the offices in June 1900I there was a bonded debt of hanging over the state about 400 000 of unaudited and unpaid claims and a deficit In the school fund of 147000 making a total of 1547000 for which the state was liable and only 363334 in the treasury to pay it with Since then under the wise policy pursued by the Democrats this large debt has been paid and 2 46521 ap propriated and expended on our char itable and penal institutions and other most worthy causes and all this with a tax rate of 2i cents less than the Republicans had Among these appropriations that have been paid are the State Capital800000Asy- lums 380153 State College and Normal Schools 228500 Penitentiaries 66615 Confederate Home 195320 Childrens Home Society 55000 Is there one among these appropria tions that Mr Willson and his associates do not approve My colored brother 55000 has been appropriated and paid to the normal and industrial school at Frankfort a school established for your race Now will Mr Willson tell you of anything his party has done for you or anybody except for the chosen few commonly designated as Pie Hunt ersProperty Values in Kentucky Increase Our opponents say that we have been wantonly extravagant and reck lessly wasteful of the peoples money that in order to meet the growing demand for more revenue instead of Increasing the tax rate we have i through the state board of equaliza Lion increased the value of the taxa ble property My friends the increase In property values in Kentucky since 1900 when the Democrats came into power has been remarkable but nat ural From 1900 to 1904 the property values in Kentucky increased from 1365130718 to 1527486230 as shown by a compilation of such values recently gathered and published by the Manufactures Record of Baltimore Estimates of conservative statisticians Indicate that a gain of 20 per cent has been made since then or that property values in Kentucky today are over 1800000000 and that of all states in the South Texas alone on account of its large area stands ahead of our own state The safety and security felt by those investing in the state under Democratic administration is shown by the large increase in organized cap ital During the four years of Brad ieys administration 38588340 was Incorporated under our laws to do businessFrom January 1 1904 to June 30 1907 three years and a half of the present administration 197195830 was incorporated under the laws of Kentucky And yet with all this splen did showing of increased property values the total equalized value of all property assessed for taxation in Kentucky is 678041918 or slightly ihi advance of onethird of the actual valueMy fellow citizens since I have been at the head of the fiscal department of the state I have collected and turned into the state treasury 3427 296 more than the Republicans did und the tax rate as before stated was 21 per cent less than theirs This additional revenue has flowed Into the treasury through the enforce ment of the revenue laws without undue oppression of any interest but with the purpose of equitably distrib uting the tax burden always in view The board of valuation and assess ment of which I am chairman has materially increased the assessment of corporate franchises and it has been done with such absolute justice and fairness that no complaint has been made During the four of Republioan rule the corporatlonspald upon their franchises taxes amount lug to 613097 Since I have been auditor the franchise tax collected amounts to 1076990 or 462893 more than the Republicans required the 4 Corporations to pay in the same lengtK tftime How Revenue Has Been Expended Having told you how much more money the present Democratic administration 4 has turned into the treasury i j than was collected by the Republican t 7I administration you axe entitled to know what was done with that excess I will tell you Thats easy Since I have been auditor the schools of the commonwealth have been paid 1781678 more than they received during the four years of Republican rule We have paid in ap propriations 1959612 more than the Republicans did for criminal prosecutions 99567 more than they for idiots 85225 more and to the jury fund 92118 in excess of the amount paid by the Republicans These five items alone making a total of 4018 201 or 590905 more than the excess of our collections showing that in this advanced age of growth and develop ment with increased obligations that naturally force themselves upon a state proud and prosperous like ours the actual cost of running the govern ment under the present administra tion has been less than it was under the Bradley administration eight years agoWhen I turn over to my successor the office of auditor a financial condi tion of the state will be shown of which any state In this Union would be pleased to boast On the first of January next after having completed the capitol and paid for it and met every obligation of the state youwill have in your treasury the neat and comfortable sum of 1250000 Will Recommend Reduction of Tax Rate After four years experience as the head of the financia department of the state I confidentially assert that the tax rate of 50 cents though not itself excessive can and ought to be reduced and if electedgovernor I will in my message to the legislature rec ommend that it be reduced to 40 cents the Jowest tax rate ever experienced since the adoption of the present con stitution What has the new and selfish man agement of the Democratic party done for the people of Kentucky asks Dr Willson I will tell you It has re- lIeved them of a bonded indebtedness of 1000000 which was inherited from a Republican administration it has reduced the tax rate it has en larged and improved the penal and charitable institutions Increased the school term from five to six months it has increased the per capita to 340 this year which will provide a school fund of 2600000 the largest amount and greatest per capita that has been paid by any administration since Ken tucky was admitted into the Union as a free and independent state It Is the largest amount provided for the support of the common schools by any state In the Union save and ex cept New York New Jersey Pennsyl vania and California It has appro- prIated 1250000 for a new state cap itol whose majestic gray walls and towering dome may now be seen ris ing in templed grandeur from an elevation overlooking the graceful wind ings of the classic Kentucky river and the quaint old capital city where its sunkissed dome wfll top a monu ment to the greatness of our state Eight hundred thousand dollars of this amount has already been paid and every remaining dollar will be paid without one cent increase of the tax rate or the creation of a debt to be met in the future No other state in this Union has ever erected a cap itol out of the current funds of the state without increasing the tax rate if at all It has established two normal schools with an annual appropriation of 20000 to each It has appropri ated 15000 annually to the state col lege It has appropriated annually 15000 to the Childrens Home Society a society whose splendid and ben eficent work can be attested In every county in this commonwealtha soci ety that takes from the alleys and streets of your cities and from the byways of the country the waifs who are left without parents and without protection and places them in con genial homes with wholesome sur roundings where they can grow up into useful and honorable manhood instead of being permitted to drift the flotsam upon the great and uncertain sea of life to a destiny per haps dishonorable if not to a felons doomIt has provided a home at a cost of 195000 for the Confederate sol diers who have been overtaken by sickness or misfortunea home where the hero of the lost cause who had the courage and the manhood to take up arms in defense cjf the principles he conceived to be right may spend his remaining days in peace quiet and comfort It has done more for the farmers of the state than any previous ad ministration Farmers institutes with noted experts as lecturers are pro vided for every county in the state An annual state fair Is held An act has been passed authorizing the farmers to pool their crops of tobac co in order that they may be better protected against th trusts Hager Nails a Republican Lie At the opening of the Republican campaign at Maysville there was ex hibited by those who participated in that public function a mot remarka abi Ignorance of exisidnrv conditions t i tl o and the law or the Ninth command ment was recklessly disregarded I shall place the more charitable con struction upon it and adopt the former conclusion It was there stated that the present administration had stolen 5 cents from the sinking fund By doing this they were able to have more for the general expenditure fund Now the facts are that the legislature of 1904 reduced the sinking fund from 5 cents to 2 cents be cause the bonds of the state had been paid and 2 cents was sufficient to pay the interest on the school bonds a perpetual obligation of the state The 3 cents taken from the sinking fund was added to the school fund as was an additional 1 cents which was taken from the general expenditure fund If any one will take the pains to refer to Chapter 18 of the Acts of 1904 he can verify this statement and I am confident that he will conclude that the legislature exercised much wisdom In augmenting the school fund and increasing the facilities for en lightening the ignorant for recent events certainly demonstrate that there are those abroad in the land who could very profitably take a few draughts from the Pierian Spring My distinguished opponent is quot ed as having said that I promised the Rev M B Adams president of the AntiSaloon League that if the Dem ocrats held a convention he President Adams could write the temper ance plank in the Democratic platform For the truth or falsity of that statement fellow citizens I refer you to Doctor Adams Mi Willson says there ought to be a change in the administrationthat- he ought to be elected Why he does not tell you for certain The strong est argument in his favor probably is the magnificently courageous stands he took In favor of Johnny cakes and buttermilk He does not think I ought to be a candidate be cause I have been a candidate three times before He does not think I ought to aspire to greater honors than my state has already conferred upon me He says I have served as county judge of my county as state treasurer and then as auditor and am now the Democratic nominee for governor and through the process of rotation four years hence I will be a candidate for the United States senatorship Will Not Again Be a Candidate Fellow citizens I am profoundly grateful to the people of Kentucky for the great honors that have come to me through their generous bestowal of confidence and trust and whether or not I am still further honored by their continued confidence by being elevated to the chief of my state I say most positively I will not be a candidate for the United States senate or any other office within the gift of the people of Kentucky the noblest and proudest constituency that any man in the civilized world ever served Mr Willson has been a candidate for twentyfive years and the nominee of his party for state senator once and for congress four times hut with much regularity and great precision and perfect ease he has each time been defeated All this however should not militate against him now for he Is not a candidate but a mis sionary I understand he feels that he has been called but you have all doubtless read that many are called but few are chosen Public Printing An Explanation of Laws Mr Willson In his poverty of cam paign thunder has undertaken to draw an indictment against the Democratic administration for the payment of a printing bill for 28000 for 19000 teachers registers and trustees rec ord books made by the second class printer and furnished to the counties In 1902 The charge is that the work could have been done for several thousand dollars less if it had been as signed to the first class printer The law classifies the work and the board has nothing whatever to do with assigning work In the first place it Is the duty of the printingcommission cqmpoged of the governor auditor treasurer sec retary of state and attorney general every two years to let all the public printing which is by law divided into four classes to the lowest and best bidder The other duty of this board is to pass upon bills presented by the public printers for work done for the state When a contract for the printing of any class is awarded to a bid der he is required by law to enter into a bond with the state to furnish all printing of that class to the state for two years at the contract price When this

JT Er pn Druggist iSSc1 Lilii ana trustees oc the tztie co Uti nept as records 5n their respective dis tricts In 1902 the superintendent of pub lic instruction following the precedent set by Governor Bradley and administration ordered from Henry Bacon the contractor to Whom the second class printing had been awarded 19000 of these books which were shipped to the various counties of the state A bH for S2S000 was presented for the work and the board composed of four Democrats and one Republican Hon Clifton J Pratt for the purpose of satisfying Itself that the work had been done by the proper contractor postponed action in the matter until the question of the class to which this printing belonged could be fully de termined The matter was referred to the Hon Clifton J Pratt the then Republican attorney general of Kentucky then and always regarded as a conscientious and able lawyer and it was determined by him as a matte of legal construction as well as by the board that the work had been properly assigned to the second class and the work so classified was paid for under the contract at the contract prices no more and no le sIDemocratic Officials Exonerated This whole question was considered by an investigating committee ap pointed by the senate of Kentucky composed almost entirely of men out of harmony with the administration which committee after hearing all the evidence made a report which was adopted by a vote of 24 to 4 three Republicans and one Democrat voting against it completely exonerating the printing commission from any blame fixing the blame if any upon the terms of the law and not in its ad ministration by members of the board The committee in its report Senate Journal 1904 page 1215 c said in part We find first That the con tracts for public printing were let by the printing commissioners in strict conformity with the law that is said contracts were severally let to the low est bidder after due advertisement as required by law Second We find that the work performed under said contracts has been done in substantial compliance with the contracts and the law relative thereto And again whether the work was first or second class was the question presented in a suit filed by Attorney General Hays in the fiscal court of the state against Mr Bacon to require him to refund to the state the differ ence between what he was paid and what the books would have cost if they had been made under the con tract for first class printing The court decided as Attorney General Pratt and the other members of the board had previously decided that the work in question belonged to the second class Thus a Republican at torney general a legislative investi gating committee and a judicial determinations have all upheld and sus tained the printing board in paying this bill about which the Republicans In this campaign are trying to make capital The amount of printing required by the state has vastly increased in the last eight years Under an act of 1900 all the paper used for ballots in the elections is i ow furnished and paid for by the state JThe business of the state naturally increases the amount of work in every departmen of government and necessitates the purchase of more record books blanks and other matter furnished by the pub lie rinters And yet Itirithall this increase of work deducting the cost of ballot paper the average annual cost of printing and for the eight vars of DemOCratic administration is 43Q1315 while the average cost for four years under Republican admin istration was 4618106 This shows that notwithstanding the great increase in the mount of work required now the cost to the state has been 256791 a year less than it was under Republican administration If Mr Willson can find any cam material in these facts he is welcome to it How and Why Attorneys Fees Were Paid Another subject from which the Re publicans are seeking to extract polit ical capital is fees paid attorneys They charge that exorbitant fees have been paid to attorneys to aid in conducting the stages legal business It has been charged that 124000 was paid out of the treasury during the first four years of Democratic admin istration for legal services that should have been procured for less than half that amount They do not tell you that included in that amount is the fee of 71000 paid Calhoun for collecting from the government war claims amounting to 1324000 They have kept from you the fact that In eluded in the 12400Q are tees con tracted for by Governor Brown Gov ernor Bradley Attorney General lien drick and Attorney General Taylor amounting 2Q000 The amounts when deducted tvom tie 124000 levee only JOOO orfour yens and afloat half tit this tanMnot w g I 0ii r a missions upon num ypous collections made by attorneys whose compensa tion was as the statute provides a certain per cent not to exceed 30 pe cent of the money collected and turned into the treasury It Is needless to take up your time in discussing the merits of the Cal houn fee which amounts to almost 80 per cent of the entire amount for in 1903 that fee was made an issue by the Republicans and the people of the state endorsed its payment from one end of the state to the other Fully Explains Architects Fee The employment of Architect An drews to furnish plans for and super vise the erection of Kentuckys new and handsome capitol is made a sub ject of criticism by my distinguished complainsofreason that another architect proposed to furnish plans for less money but for the reason that Mr Andrews is an Ohio Republican How stranger How surpassing wonder that Mr Will son should object to the employment of an architect because he is a Re publican Is Mr Willsons objection to MrA Andrews born of a lofty desire to see Kentuckys interests carefully guarded and her affairs properly and wisely administered Or has he inIhis mad desire to win one election descended to the plane of a dema gogue In the selection of an architect the commission was actuated alone by toe patriotic desire to procure for Kentucky the best skill and talent possible and everybody without re gard to party affiliation who takes a pride in his state and who has seen the results of Mr Andrews work without exception commend the action of the capitol commission for the wis dom displayed in the selection of an architect The original contract with Mr Andrews was to furnish plans and specifications for a capitol to come within the original appropriation of 1000000 and superintend its con struction for 40000 to be paid when the capitol was completed and ac cepted as satisfactory by the commis sionThe legislature of 1906 believing that Kentucky was entitled to a capitol in keeping with her growth and glory decided to make the Interior solid marble and to make a few other desirable changes appropriating 250 000 for that purpose This necessi tated changing the plans and revising the specifications for which the arch itect was entitled to a commission which according to rules governing the American Association of Architects amounted to 11000 That has been paid to Mr Andrews and it is every dollar that he has received and every dollar that he is en titled to and will receive until the building is finished when the 40000 11firstprocured for less than the fee to be paid Mr Andrews Mr Willson did himself the injustice to say in his M2ngalthatthe Courier Journal from the capitol commissioners shows that over 51 000 has already been paid to Architect Andrews and he is by his con tract entitled to 34000 more or S5t 000 in all isllfPr Willson Presuming on Ignorance of 14Iinsult to the intelligent citizenship of the good county of PikejMr Willson must have presumed that the people of that county could not read understandingly the state ipent referred to in the Courier Jour nalThat statement shows very plainly that Architect Andrews had a credit of 51306 and has been paid 11306 leaving a balance of4q000 as already explained The statement made by Mr Willson that Mr Andrews has a contract with the commission for 85y 000 rejects ho credit upon my dis tinguished opponent because the rec ord and the facts will not bear him out in such a statement Mr Willson may think the people of the mountains will accept any statement that he tna make but he underestimates the telligence of the sturdy honest mann taineeiy As to behlers CampaignContribution In an effort to make good with the temperance people of the mountains Mr Willson attempts licule the position that I have taken upon that question and to reflect upon my hon esty and sincerity in the matter As an evidence of my alleged lnsin cerity he says that in 1903 when I was chairman of the Democratic campaign committee the Central Consumers company made a campnign contribution of 3500 to our commit tee upon my promise to protectthe saloon interests That statement Is not correct In 1903 Col Chars P Defiler who I be lieve was secretary of the Brewers association tame tc Democratic heal heqwas going to make a contribution to the campaign fund and later did con tribute 3500 and did so witfcoat any ftlAifce d y arorlr amide hfm I etuecsever said I made any promise or pledge of the kind mentioned or that promiseorrpledge statement of my oppo nent that I opposed the county unit bill as long as I dared is as ridiculous as his oftrepeated statement that I had told the president of the Anti Saloon League that he might write the Democratic platform on saloons- I have had the courage to frankly state my position upon the temper ance question and did not like my dis tinguished opponent when asked to do so express the fear that I might get broken glass in my bare feet Speaker Points to Democratic Record I have been a member of the Dem ocratic state administration for seven and onehalf years and upon my record as such official will the intelligent voters of Kentucky judge what I will do if elected governor in November next It is the proud boast of my party that it has never failed to carry out its platform pledges to the people Certainly this has been demonstrated during the last half dozen years in the carrying out of the pledges made by the martyred Goebel in the cam paign which resulted in his assassina tion As public treasurer and auditor of public accounts and as state cam paign manager in the past I have contributed to the carrying into effect of the pledges made to the people dur ing campaigns and I defy my opponent to cite a single instance in which I have been guilty of promoting any legislation in favor of liquor dealers or in the slightest degree hindering legislative measures which were for the moral upbuilding of the state Every political party when in a campaign receives contributions to its funds and doubtless the party represented by Mr Wilson in this camtpaign received a similar check fox money to that sent to the Democratic side in the 1903 campaign The Books Already Ispected My distinguished opponent has adopted the old war cry of 1895 give foJi us a look at the books That old rtrick cannot be worked again upon the people of this state You may fool the people once but you must adopt another game if you expect it to workyour decoy must be changed The fact that not one dollar was discovered to have been paid out of the treasury by the Democrats without warrant of law is too fresh In the minds of the people of Kentucky for nowIin the state offices are open to the inspection oF the public at all times For the last sixty days two clerks in my office have been kept busy showing the records to Mr Geo L Barnes the postmaster at Frankfort formerly a clerk under Republican Auditor Stone and who s perfectly familiar with the records that office Mr Todd who was the private secretary of fugitive Taylor and Mr A S Bennett secretary of the Republican campaign committee These gentlemen who were locking for campaign material will say that every courtesy has been extended to them and every public transaction shown and explained to them We invite the most careful and scrutinizing inspection and examination of all the public records and demand that Mr Willson and his asso- ciateS give to the public specific reasons
