Superintendent of Schools of Powell county subject to the action of the Democratic party Not for Roosevelt Hon Grant E Lilly of Rich mond formerly County Attor ney of Estill and well known to the majority of our readers gives out the following statement in the Louisville Times CllIe stated that he was born a Republican and largely inherited his politics from his father who was a Colonel in the Union army during the Civil War and was sev eral times elected Circuit Judge of his district He also stated that he believed in the priniciples of the Republician party but at this juncture in our history he believed that the race problem was the para mount issue in tho South and that President Roosevelt by hip person al and official conduct had shown himself to be unworthy support of Southern people that over thirty years of experience had shown that the colored man was incapable of government and that the Presi dents course was unwise and unjust to both the white and colored races in the South He said that Presi dent Roosevelt hud selected as his chief confidential adviser over the South a negro Booker Washington and that all other advisers in the South wore subordinate to this nee gro that this conduct on the part of the President was an affrdnt to nil Southern people and shoVed that he was unfit to hold the highest office in the Republic He said he was opposed to the election of Mr I Roosevelt as President that he was a man dangerous to the country especially to the South that his course of conduct had intensified and make prominent a very danger ous problem that was slowly work logout in a satisfactory manner under President MoKinley and previous President but which would prove to bo a very disturbing and menacing question under Mr Roosevelt if reelected 4 Result
