county in the state which owes its support to McCre ary it is Rockcastle We findto fault with any Democrat for stir porting Gov Beckham its as muck your privilege to support the Gov ernor as it is ours to support Sena tor McCreary But to those who are inclined toward Beckham we want to put this simple question which of the two men has been a friend to Rockcastle Has it been Governor Beckham or has it been Senator McCreary Who has always come to our aid when we needed help We answer Senator McGreary Who has turned down Rockcastle people on every question presented to him We answer Governor Beckham As the old saying goes Liars can figure but figures dont lie II Likewise facts which we know to be facts we should let govern our acts rather than bt guided by those things the truth of whichwe know not When we cast our votes for Senator McCre ary we are voting for a man who will represent all his people and not just a chosen few This great gov ernment of ours is a goverment by the people and for the people and not a government of graft and grafters such as we have been ex periencing in Kentucky for the past few years IT is just a little more than a week until the election Let every Democrat in the county keep this fact in mind and make it a point to be at the election on the sixth day ot next month Rev H D C MacLachan of Shelbyville writes an open letter in which he makes startling charges He charges that S W Hager as Chairman of the campaign commit tee received from Chas P Dehler Secretary of the Brewer Combine a check for 3500 in consideration of which Governor Beckham agreed that the interests of the liqu or people would be guarded during his Beckhams term as Governor r1sononallyit is dated Louisville Ky Oct 28 1903 given on the German Insurance Bank of Louisville Ky for 3500 made payable to S W Hager chairman and signed Chas P Dehler it was duly indorsed by S W Ha ger chairman and paid through the Union NationalBank of Louis ville Now Mr Chas P Hehler is secretary of the Brewers combine in Louisville and also of the Central Consumers Company which is the political organization which has charge of the allied beer and whisky interests in the State It is alleged by Chas P Dehler that this check was given to Mr Hager on a distinct pledge given by Gov Beckham himself on the morning of the 28th of Octo ber 1903 at the tenth street depot in Louisville and in consideration thereof the liquor interests would be safeguarded during his Gov ernor Beckhams term of office and in particular that the county unit bill would not be alowed to passIt is a matter of common knowl edge that this pledge was kept and the unit bill held up until the last Senatorial campaign I also upon examination found it to be true that Chas P Dehler gave the check which was cashed by Mr Hager at the Union National Bank necessa nally to be used for campaign purposes lor the benefit of Gov Beck ham who was then a candidate for Governor and Mr Hager who was a candidate for Auditor in 1906 that said Dehler was ed by Gov Beckham on apPointJ and is now serving as such was afterward appointed by him as a commissioner of the Lakeland Asylum This 3500 whisky monT was received by these now alleged friends of temperance they the whisky people do notj give up their money without they receive proper pledges Now I am one of those who be lieve that there should be honor among thieves and that a pledge given to the whisky interests is as binding upon a man of honor as one given to a richeous cause I am further of the opinion that one who will break faith with the liquor dealers will break it also with the Antisaloon League whenever it is to his interest to do so What tile temperance people want is not trumpedup advocates of ther cause but honest men in power Shall the temperance vote of this State be cast for men notI fnly proved corrupt but faithlesslyI e1ec1tionHager will mean a victory for perance because it will teach ternII ticians of this state respect the temperance vote With all due deferance it will do n thing of the sort The politi cians know very well the true in wardness of the campaign and Gov Beckham and Mr Hagers election will only teach them that the temperance voters of Kentucky PlaVjthito degrade a high and moral issue to the level of wardheeling politics H D C MACLACHLAN Minister oi the Christian Church Shelbyville Ky In reply to a letter to Judge Ha ger concerning the check in ques tion Mr MacLachlau received the following letter Office of S W Hager Candi date for Governor Frankfort K Oct i7 1906Rev H D C Mac Lachlan Shelbyville Ky Iant in receipt of your letter of the i5th inst addressed to Judge Hager requesting that he advise you within three days Iconcerning the assurances purported to have been given by Judge Hager and Gov Beckham to Mr Chas P Dehler in exchange for contribution to the Democrat Campaign Committee in 1903 of which Judge Hager was chairman Judge is absent from the city and will not return for sev eral days I have talked to him over the telephone in regard to your letter and he bids me to say to you that he will not be home in time to answer your letter within the time mentioned therein but to assure you that he never accepted any check upon his pledge to any one nor did he see Mr Dehler or anyone else at the Tenthstreet de potin Louisville and make a pledge of this or any other character Up on his return here within the week he will answer your letter SARAH W MAHAN Sec The statements in the above let ter are no doubt correct but it is not alleged that Judge Hager made any promise but that Governor Beckham made the promise andon the condition of that promise the check was sent to Judge Hager as chairman of the Campaign Com mittee Judge Hager had nothing to promise He was running for Auditor and as such would have no influence over legislation TC W Beckeam as Governor of Ken tucky had the power and influence to control any kind of legislation he desired and in inimitable style of Percy Haly We just delivered the goods to both sides A dispatch from Louisville to the Cincinnati Enquirer says GO ere nor Beckham has capitulated The birthright of the cause of temper ance has been traded for a possible mess of senatorial pottage Every saloon in this city was wide open today No attempt was made bv the police to exercise surveillance or to intedere with the traffic inI liquor The Boaid of Public tyis complacent Its members show no alarm Word has gone forth that John Crepps Wickliff Beckham Governor of the 0111 monwealth Kentucky by tue grace of accident first and of suf frage more latterly has receded from the high and austere plane of temperance upon which he planted his virgin banner and will accept the sullied vote of the interests he so lately traduced and spurned The situation is chaotic The temperance ranks are astounded Ofrtheiryoung crusader whose brave utter ance and heroic attitude had dyna mite effect upon their wavering t officered

quarters the belief is firm rhnt a metempsychosis has taken place It is difficult to interpret the meaning 01 the sudden shifting of the scenes It was pointed out in these dispatches week ago that the Governor was suspected of play- Ing a dual role The assertion was made also that he was flirting with the liquor iniectstss n I thelarge vote controlled by them It was appar ant that the result of the primary depends largely upon the vote of Louisville and Jefferson county A w ek ago the prohibitionist and the temperance people were united almost solidly behind the Governor Hal the Governor been able to re main behind his mask there could have been no doubt of the outcome here With both elements looking up to him as conservator and friend his calling and election seemed sure The liquor people are jubilant tonight TLey accept conditions to day as indicative of the Govern ors future policy The abiding fear that they would get the hot end of it no matter which way their vote might be cast has been remov ed If the understanding were but a halfhearted agleement there would be more concern in their ranks for fear that it might after all be an anteelection machination to catch the necessary vote I seems to be generally understood tonight that the agreement is one that mortgages the future as wellas the present The great accretion to the Bed ham ranks from the liquor interests is certain to be very largely offset by the panicky desertion of the temperance people who profess to see in to days conditions here a JekylHyde leadership that is self seeking and untrue to their cause POLITICS
