and nature rf Its opposition are even more a testimonial of its fidelity to duty than are the VI dences of its success and the praise rf Its friends All of this tight Is largely due to the fact that I am now a candidate for the United States and during th11 years ot Democratic control In kcntucky have been Governor and at the head of the administration My op ponent In this contest has formed an

personal re rard In his character as gentleman and gaint him In this hell not bf uttered It I can help It a single word of ungenerous or unjust reproach If I can not win without seeking to de troy him then I do net want to win but I do not Intend that he shall win this nomination by endeavoring to destroy me my friends and the Democratic Ad- mInistration of Kentucky The honor of my name as a public

therefore to presume that In making that alliance It for Governor he In dunes and approves tho campaign which the Attorney General has been making and before get through I Intend to show that the dtsilngulihed Senator has ndopt ed a policy of campaign so monitrojs in Its unfairness and absurdity that It takes nothing but a presentation of plain feels to overthrow It In the minds of the honest and Intelligent voters ot the State Ills sccmd Issue ot the campaign to rally to his support and array agnlnat me all of those elements which are nn erroreingof the Salmbth and my effort last winter In aiding to secure the of the County Unit which the General Assembly dirt pops and which Is now ft law of the Commonwealth For the lost two months he and his friends have been active In ortrmlzlnr

the stand which I did In favor of reojonablt tem perance IIRlIonJand In Insisting upon the tnf r laws of the Slate In reference to Sunday closing They wojll Ir they could exhibit my political corpse as an example to future Governors and ether lest they ton sensible to the obligations of thvtr oath and willing to perform their nuty under It might meet the same fate If they should take a stand to

then the nple of Kentucky would like to know whether he approves my peal lion In regard to them or disapprove It Just as he does through his candidate for Governor every other act of my adminis

win this nomination nout seeking to bring reproach upon a Demo cratic administration In the CttMte ever though It be that of ny opponent then do not want It nut as he has FOught la compare ids administration with niliu to my tUsoredlt and of the al leged economy of his and the alleged extravagance of mine wu shall look at the fact end let them speak for us In such a controversy On July X he opened his campaign at Georgetown and I have H published copy of his speech In order to do justice I quote In his oven language a paragraph of what he said about his service as Governor I found a surplus of In tho treasury when I went Into office I have always believed In anII Ian Then the tux on every Situ was 4i t recommended the Legislature to reduea It to 40 on the which was don Tht tax rate now Is W cents on the What he says about finding a surplus In the treasury when he went Into alike and a reduction of the tax rate Is true but let us look at the condition of the treasury and the affairs of the Htnt when he went out of office lie was ruc metal tin September X Lea by Governor Luke a man of truth and thl biggesthearted Uovernor Ientuck ever hurl Oov McCreary left the finan ces of the State In such a demomlUrd condition that he forced his successor to ask for a restoration of the old rate In order to maintain the credit of the Com monwealth For nearly thirty years he has uttfd that tax reduction as one of hU chief political assets but he has never breathed a about tho unfortunate result It brought to the State treasury I shall not tell it but 1 will let his hon orable successor speak In my place About four months after Joy Ulack UiiheAssembly of Kentucky and gave An account of the condition of the Commonwealth when he took charge In the first part of that messa Most Important legislation awaits nnd will demand your attention for reform Is sadly needed in various departments ot the State government- In another part of that message he says respectfully recommend the restora tlon ot 6 cents on each fet of taxable property of the Commonwealth In other words to make the taxes what they were four years ago In this he was compelled to ak n rem edy for the blunder commuted by ids predecessor In another place und I want to call your attention to these criticism admlnlitered not by a rival candidate but by a successor In office of Uov Mc Creary to his management of the States finances Gov Ulackburn says It can not be forgotten that on the Ith day of August last a short time about one before my advent Into office the Auditor was compelled to stop the drawing of warrants on the treasury for the reason that the Treasurer was not In funds The Auditors report which will be laid before you In due time will show that there was a surplus balance In the treasury on the 10th of October last the close of the fiscal year 17937 but unfortunately this report is totally and utterly delusive In this that at the time there was a large mount of outstanding and unaudited claims against the treasury aggregating a very large sum not less than ever1 Itfolloweretoremisleading and calculated to make an Imprestlon which the real tact In the cue do not at all Justify or warrant In other words the outstanding and unpaid claims against the Commonwealth on the 10th day of October last were really In excess of the amount then In the treasury and consequently there wait deficit and a very large one Instead of a surplus He further says net the estimated deficit for the 10th of October was 67991235 This deficit of course was the legitimate consequence of the financial mistakes of Gov McCrearys adminis tration This first message of Irli puc cessor Is a complete answer to the boasts he Is now making before the of Kentucky about hii

ever cSown I would MY to this newborn ned vociferous Apostle of Reform In is words of adage Phyel ian heal myself If half be true of what has been so freely charged about the body of which he has been a member for four or five years he has lost a wonderful ty to establish himself as a ieal Reform or end yet In all of that tIme his voles ties been silent I could ask no more than that the people shall closely observe some of the elements of Rform which my opponent hM Induced to ride upon crest of this Wave with him- i campaign lie has been given the permission by these elements to declare he

example the man who aa an stood for a adae to which they are bitterly opposed rh The bttle cry which has been deoetK Is Down with the ilaehlno Ills plan of campaign Is to throw odium upon the Democratic official of the Stat ernment not that he believes they ant deserving of censure but because Ia hopes to rally to hU standard Mil th forces of opposition to the AdmlnUlr tlon That this U true t can easily Iem onstrate A little over two lIln ago a State lnventlon was held In Louisville to lend delegates to the National Convention at St Louis and to reorganise the l arty In the State A fIght was mude before tho Democratic voter of the State and 8n ator McCreary his assistance to wa called the AntlAdmlntitnuton hatI Hut when the convention met It found that after a fair contest before people the Administration side had a majority of three to one over the opt sltlon Senator McCreary was up the Committee on Resolutions and wal made chairman of the Committee lie was a member of the gubcominltt which wrote the resolutions and he him self wrote the following paragraph of those resolutions which he as of the Committee read to the whole Coi ventlon with a great deal of caniMtnei and enthuilatm- It Is with pride and pleasure that wo point to the splendid condition of our Commonwealth under Democratic rule The State Is freo from debt and law and order eerywhre prevaiL We therefore unqualifiedly endorse the wise patriot and administration of Oov Ueckham and our State official and we mark with much satisfaction the striking contrast between their ndmlnl tratlon of public affairs and that of W a Taylor brought shame and dU grace to the Commonwealth At that time this socalled Machine had been In power over four years and It la only a little over two years Ilnle the distinguished Senator penned I1nd read those eulogistic lines upon the record of those whom and his Candida for Governor now so violently nssal What explanation can he give for hls sudden change of mind In two years on so important a la It due to the exigencies of his candidacy for reo nomination Or Is it to t e accounted for by the fact that a man who was an it tense goldbug in and an equally In tense sllvertt In JISi6 has a right to change his mind on any question In two years time especially so when the it crests of own candidacy seem to dll mand such a change In the convention two years ago whe he wanted It 0 select him as a delegate from the Stateatlarge he wrote and li dorced that resolution but now when 1 am a candidate against him he rays that the resolution states what was not true even though he wrote 1L To the con mon mind it Is hard to understand hi position on some questions Was ho rIght 1904 or is he right In 1900 Was he right In 1895 when ho was for the gold standard or was he right In IkM he took the sliver side of that If he thought my administration wu such a gool two years wht has happened to change his mini so ud denly unless It be that I am seeking the tame office that he wants and for that reason alone he is willing to admit now that what he said about me In that reso lutlon In was not meant and that It was Intended to deceive the as to the truth of the situation If this administration Is bad now It was bad In and it was the duty of this pilot of the Wave of Reform and chairman of thc Committee on Resolutions to tell the pea so Instead of writing to them abou the wise patriotic and economic admin titration Ho complains about the call for a prl mary election on November 6 one yea before the Representatives and Senator who selected the United States Senator an elected He attempts to show that In the call for his primary I have tried to take what het calls snap Judgment of him What does he mean by that Since he was elected to the Senate nearly flvi years ago he has a candidate for reelection and used every et ad vance his candidacy lie can not plead a lack of preparation for the campaign for as a matter of fact there has not been a year or a day in my lifetime thehe haa not been a candidate for somt nice The same week In which I wai torn In iwa he was elected to the Legtf Kiture When I was six years old he was elected Governor of the State end there Is not a voter In the State who li not familiar with the fact that he hai be n a candidate ever since The call for the primary was made by this Committee the early part of last June five months before the election anti certainly that Is enough time for any candidate to make a campaign The truth of the matter Is that my distinguished opponent did nQt want any primary ut nil his race lie M been complaining about It ever since it was called 1 earnestly favored It because I havj al ways believed that Senators should be elected by a direct vote of the people and this primary for the nut time in the history of the State the Democrats a chance to directly their choice the mountains and other Republican District where Democrats never can elect a State Senator or Representatives It gives for the first time to those gel lant party workers a voice In the selec lion of a United States Senator In interviews and public state nflits he has said that he demanded the irimary should be fair and honest I ad IresTea him a comfitunlcatlan on the sub Pert and suggested that Inasmuch as the SAnatorIa race be the first one un tile ballot he and I as the two randl hUes for that office should unite in re luentlng thd Committee to divide the lection officers between us as the surest md most guarantee of a fair dec lon This proposition he declined to ac ceptItoo insist that It shall be a fair and innesl primary I do not want a vote In the State to which I am not entitled And I cnll upon nil of my friends and th- eirt Democrats of Kentucky to use hVlr bst efforts to

and defensive alliance I lo not consider such charges coming from him as worthy of my notice except for the fact that he Is the announced utiing mate of my opponent and ap mrently has his sanction In

He has therefore been ttorney General for more than two and a halt but from the very startyean he has been like the Ishmaellte with his iand raised against every Democratic issoclate In the State

our unan moui opinion that his was to escape nil responsibility for anything thllt might be done and make some polltlci capital If out of the conduct of the boardl We endeavored to secure hll presence at the meetings but he decline to attend Seeing his purpose so plaint we did everything possible to compel hll attendance For a while we tried tho plan of having written notices of the meeting served upon him just as a shut ill serves a process of law In a few lr stances we succeeded In getting him to attend but every time he did so his lr sincere and unfair purpose was so Rp purrnt and his efforts to embarrass th work of the boards so plain that ho lost the Teipect and eonnllenco of evety on if fellowmembers Let us look nt the records and see how faithless he has been to his oath of ollire as Attorney General In discharging the duties Imposed upon him law Utt criticizes the conduct of the Irlntln Uoanl since he became a member of It and yet the records of that board sho that In his time there have been fort seven meetings of the Hoard of which h had notice and that he has only attends eight of those meetings If he Is so vlgl hint of the States Interest why has h not attended these meetings and wutche what was being done lie wAs notltlet urged and summoned to attend them an his usual reply was that he was too bll ir sometimes he would send an Inxulftng message to the Hoard All of his criticism on the printing matter Is directed against this present bonn with the exception of one Item which he durIInlfteachers registers and trustees record honks paid In 1W2 was

The same work under Gov Bradley administration hat been done by the secondclass contractor Tho board referred the question to th Attorney General lion C J Pratt Rnd It was his opinion anti the unanlmim pinion of the board that It was work that belonged to the secondclass con tract The records of the boards shov that he was present and voted to allot this claim The law and the contrite matte under the law fixed the prices tha should be paid and the board had no discretion except to pay It Every trl bitnal which has passed upon this matte has upheld the unanlmoua action of tint boardIn the General Assembly of 1M4 Joe lifter he canto Into office he pooled hi political Interests with the interests If come rival and disappointed con rerns of Louisville and Instigated a leg dative to look Into hit matter A committee was appointed hI tlte Senate and made the Investigation Auditor Hager Secretary of State Mc hesney and myself were requested t testify before committee w onsented to to so upon condition thAt the hearing be open to the public and rot behind closed doors The committee which was composed almost entirely ol lien known to be unfriendly to the Ad ilnlstratlon agreed to it and we gave ur testimony so that the public could now all about It After finishing the In estlgatlon the committee made Its re port to the Senate which can be found In he State Journal completely exonerating thf Commission from any blame and approving their action In every par ilcular I quote several paragraphs from this eport which show that this lnvi stlga lion started and encouraged by the At nrney General was a complete rebuke to the falsity of the charges made by him And other such enemies of the AdmlnlK ration The committee said In this re ort We Zulu first that the contracts for public printing were let by the Printing omml lnner8 In strict conformity with the law that Is said contracts were wv rally let to the lowest bidders after due dvertlsem nt AS required by law Sto- nJ we find that performed under said contracts has been done In ubstantlal compliance with the contracts nd the law relative thereto that the recent law relating to the letting of con mete for the public

was more han this work was worth the same con motor under his contract had to do much other work nt a loss The Attorney Jencml not satisfied by the Senates ctlon took tho whole matter by a suit Jnto the Franklin Circuit Court and after a full hearing of the ease the Circuit udge decided against him and his del slon amounted to another complete en orgement of the action of the board Anti now his

and that thu man who made It expected to make far more than 10000 b deals with contractors and that the State would haVe been a serious loser We do not know what the tie betwe the Attorney General and
