election in 1896 R L BROWN Acting Chairman It is with a great deal of pleasure that we insert in this issue of the Signal the formal announcement of 1 the Hon James D Black of Bar bourville as a candidate for gov ernor to fill the vacancy caused b the death of the late Gov William Goebel Search the ranks of Dem ocracy from Cumberlands peak toI f the Mississippi or from the Tennes see line to the Ohio and you cannot find a better Democrat a truer Democrat or one better suted for the place or more deserving than the gentleman from Knox He has always been a faithful and de vout worker for the cause of De mocracy in Kentucky and has at every opportunity rendered valu ahleYservice in his section although healways had to make his fight under the most adverse circumstances it being the great Repub lican stronghold the state while we havent a word to say against the Hon W B Smith of Rich mond who has already announced his candidacy for governor nor Iany of the prospectiv candidates who rave heretofore been favor ably mentioned including Gov J C W BecKham but at this crucial period in Kentuckys politics all personal airibitipn andaspirations must be putaside and unite on the strongest and best man It is not oar intention to say for a moment tfhat either of the other gentlemen mentioned would not be strong men in the race but they have all atsome time been aspirants for some office in the gift of the people tsnti consequently nixed up inpoli iI i tics more or less for their own gain while with Mr Black it is all to gather different this being the first he ever asked for himself save one race for congress Now that the Temocjats of the state have an op portunity to repay him forhis vat uable service in the past Ifor his time labor and even hard earned dollars which he has always so graciously given for the success of the party We sat give hint the nomination and make him Govern or next November The Hon James B McCreary who wants to go to the Democratic National Convention as a dele gate from the state at large is the man above all others who ought to be honored with that place which he seeks as a very small recompense for what he has already done If there has ever been anyone who has at all times proven himself a friend to the people of Rockcastle it is Gov McCreary and it is the incere desire of the Signal that when the Democrats meet in convention here tomorrow they will without a dissenting voice instruct the delegates to the state conven tion to cast their votes first last and all the time for him Col Daniel R Collier has retued to Frankfort from a conference with Fugitive Taylor at Indianap olis It is believed he carried a message fron exGov Bradley and other influential Republicans warning Taylor that unless he returns and faces his
