had acted in a soldierly manner on the Hop kinsville trip he has been made ito feel that the Adjutant Generals department does not hold him in high Norman says his company which is one of the best in

Louisvilles Vote Action of Col Albert Scott- Will Determine This BOLT MAY COME ON WEDNESDAY If Col Albert Scott chairman of the lepubllcan Committee in Jefferson county signs the credentials of theJ Fairbanks delegates to the Republi au State Convention which meets in Louisville next Wednesday the Fairbanks faction of the Republicans may be able to dominate the convention select W O Bradley as a delegate to the State Convention and instruct Kentuckys vote for Fairbanks If the votes of Louisville are not enough- to give Fairbanks the control It Is probable that a bolt will result and two conventions wtll be held in Louis yule the fight to be taken before the national convention at Chicago Col Scott was in Frankfort yester Ivy but would not say whether or noti e u Gild sign the credentials of eith er side He said simply that he bad not signed the credentials for either faction yet Col Scott is for Fairbanks and he saw the w ay the Fairbanks men were riin In the convention held In Louisville last Saturday when as the Republicans say no element of fraud was left out The organization of the State Conven tlon will be made by the delegates who hold the proper credentials sign ed by the county chairmen The Fair banks men are pinning their faith onI Col Scott signing their credentials Louisville and claim with the votes of Louisville they will be ableI to organize the convention If they do it will be all off for Taft as the Fairbanks men would be seated all over the State contests being filed In a large number of the counties The State Convention of the Repub licans is going to be a lively and in teresting one and the fun will be gin on Tuesday when the district conventions will be held Affidavits are being taken by the wholesale and every preparation Is being made by the Fairbanks men for contests allover the city The Fairbanks forces havea few delegates In the Louisville delegation as declared selected 64 men being for the Indianan Phoenix Hill has been decided upon as the place for holding the conven tion The convention will be called to order promptly at 1 oclock in the afternoon by Richard P Ernst man of the Republican State Central Committee Mr Ernst said liE yet it has not been decided as to who probably will be named as temporar- chairman of the convention The State Central Commltee vMll meet on the morning of May 6 and will then decide upon a recommendation for temporary chairman Nin of the thirteen members it is said strongly favor Taft which means that In all probability one of the leading Taft men ln the State will be nominated It is not certain as yeF whether the Fairbanks men will decide to pa up a candidate for temporary chairman but Gov Augustus E Wilson and W 0 Bradley Senatorelect have been spoken of In that connection There Is practically no doubt that the Fairbanks men will bolt the con vention but at just what time in the proceedings they will io so no one seems to know exactly The prevail ing opinion is however that the bolt will follow the seating of the tempo a rary chairman as he will undoubtedly be a Taft man and will have the 1 naming of two of the three members of the credentials committee This it is said will mean that the Fair banks men will have no chance in contests to be fought out before thetcfkdentlals cffcimltt4Jfcis the work of that committee likely will be of the 9 cut and dried variety The Fair banks men likely will have rented a hall in a iclpation of trouble to which they will adjourn and select- a contesting delegation Two district conventions on the night of May 5 and the nomination of two candidates for Congress by the Republicans of the Fifth congressional dlstr ct almost seems to be a certain ty The Fairbanks leaders show noldisposition to lay down and are paring their evidence for a strong contest at the district convention JN THE POOL Adjutant enera Johnson as YSIrkis BELIEVES LAW AND ORDER IS NOT THE MONOPOLY OF ONE PARTICULAR SET OF MEN Adjt Gen P P Johnston Is a lover of fine horses and fine lands and would rather see a rich fertile soil covered with bluegrass than to see the same land worn out by frequent cultivation growing tobacco even though he owned the tobacco and it was going be sold for a good price Gen Johnston is so fond of seeing land smiling and beautiful that he Is loath to break up a meadow and plant tobacco and has not grown any on his farm in Fayette county since 1906 He did not grow any tobacco In 97 or 98 because he thinks tobacco wears out the land Gen Johnston has a lot of tobacco W1iIChjehaspoole with the Burley Soc ety and some of it has beens ld His scos have a good deal of tobacco in the pool and have been very successful with their farms which are also In Fayette county Gen Johnston loves beauty of land and horses more than money and he does not raise tobacco now even though it would be the most profitable crop When Gen Johnston was selected by the Governor to be Adjutant General the Governor did not know that Gen Johnston had his tobacco pooledrwith the Burley Society One day several months after Gen Johnstons appointment as Adjutant General he went Into the Governors office and tho latter said to him Is your tobacco pooled Yes it Is pooled replied Gen I am glad of it said the d Governor Now they cannot say that I was partial in making my selection as Adjutant General Gen Johnstons connection with the Burley Society through his pooled to bacco goes to show that the best Bm ley people are not on the side of the night riders and that no classification can be made of the men who have been taking part in the troubles in the tobacco districts It has been charged that the Burley Society and those Interested in the pool are back of the night riders yet here Is Gen Johnston at the head of the troops ridersrAsks Receiver For Ywens oro Bank Upon the receipt yesterday of infor matlon going to show that the Daviess Banek and Trust Company ofiOwensboro is insolvent Jackson rig

CANTRILL SAYS HE TRIED TO GET PRIMARY IN SEVENTH- The following card has been pub lished by J Campbell Cantrlll The action of the committee of this Congressional District in calling off j ft r the primary election for May 12th and substituting therefor mass conven Lions at each county seat on August 29th to select delegates to attend the dictrict convention at Lexington on September 3d compels me as a can didate for the Democratic nomination to tax your patience with another let ter- Although the original call of the committee was very unfair and unjust and drawn altogether in the interest t Y of tho present Congressman I accepted Its provisions in good faith and- begun a canvess of the eight counties of the district although I had but 35 days in which to make the fight- I spent a considerable amount of money in advertising my candidacy ever the district and was in the field making my appeal to the people for fair play and a square deal Your 1committee seeing that the people of the dla iict were determined to standby me at the polls on the 12th day of May In order to nullfy the will of he voters recinded its former action and ordered mass conventions for August 29th I desire every voter to know that I was opposed to this change I was strongly In favor of a primary I r election and the change to a convention was made over my protest The purpose of the committee is to endeavor to disfranchise as many of the farmers and country people as possl ble by dragging them miles to the county seat in order that they may their votes in this election The majority of the district committee seems willing to adopt any arbI- trary rule which will deprive me of this nomination and I therefore come before the people under the new call of the committee and urge them stand by me in protesting against such uncoiled for and unfair action The first call of the ccwjnittoo lowed but 45 days for eight counties tax 2000 to enter details of h the hands of the Congressman de resentation at all tiro matter Into their o In the face of these unfair Su unjust conditions I entered the race and was making an appeal to the votow of the district The committee that the people were standing upon my side and that they had fallen the pit they had dug for me trigger on the gun they had loaded for May 12th I had controlled the and had set the trap for opponent and had gotten caught- In it myself I would certainly have swallowed my medicine and gone to the post on May 12th regardless of fate The time has come in Kentucky when the farmers and those In sympathy with the farmers must stand- up for their rights and use the power they have In every legitimate way a This actiion of the committee in ordering mass conventions at the county seat puts the farmers and the people the country at a great disadvantage- In casting their votes and having a vqice In the councils of the party However I trust that you will agree with me that the issues involved in this contest are of sufficient Importance for you to take time to attend the convention and that you will regis ter your protest against the action of committee which seeks to handicap In the exercise of your suffrage- I hope to meet you In person before the convention and have an op portunity to discuss fully all of the questions Involved in this race So far as I am concerned the canvass will be made In good humor and upon- a high plane I trust you deem me worthy of the honor I seek at your hands and that I will have your fluence and support Sincerely J CAMPBELL CANTRILL Five Deaths In One Short Week AMONG THE

hundreds of men and boys to do them By ten oclock in the morning everything is in readiness for the show and parade Almost every circus claims to have a show that can not be duplicated and an aggregation of performers the Kite or which can not be brought together but the fact lis that every circus of any consequence has a double force and a double equipment There are really two cIrcus troops which have to travel about The leapers ore liable to injury A sprained ankle will put one of tho best per formers out and there Kust be a man to take his place Possibly the substitute v8li make as great a lttaq the regular Even tho performing horses have their substitutes It is a fact not generally known the Robinson show carries two complete large canvasses In case one is destroyed by fire or storm another must be ready to be put up When a failure to give a performance entals a loss of 510000 to 20000 for expenses the matter becomes serious Even the men who put up the cnn vas can be
