To The Republican Voters of the 28th Judicial District: Five years ago, through your generous kindness, I was called to the position of circuit judge of this judicial district. You selected me for this important post because you believed that I was possessed of character, honest', ability and, above all, a detqrmimtion to stand fearlessly for the right. After fully looking into my record, you were so thoroughly satisfied th?t I measured up to a! the requirements as a candidate for judge that jou gave me the nomination and election without opposition.llus wasgratifing iu the extreme to me. ft was an honor that comes to but few men of my age and opportunities in life, and I shall never cease to be grateful to you for this mark of your approval and endoiseniciit. During the campaign lor j i dge live ers ago, I prepared a speech in winch I undertook to give' my impressions of the ideal judge In that speech I made it plain what I would do as judge in the event of m election. In order tiat you may have your memories refresh edas to my position then, I will here quote a short extract from said - charge of my duties, and since that time, with the exception of the short period when I was stricken w.th illness, I have been at my post of duty. I begn the work as judge with z full determination that I would clear the dockets of the district, and make it possible for to get their causes tritd within a reasonable time. With the efficient co operation and assistance of the attorneys and jurors who g have served with me. I have been able to accomplish this, not will save th serious handicap of tny sickness This alone the tax-p- j ers and litigants hundieds of dollars annually, and guarantee a speedy settlement of all matttrsof litigation that are c mutually arising in the district. In addition to this I have, as you know, laid special stress r.pon the subject of the enforcement of the criminal and peml laws, and have persistently and vigorously appealed to the Grand Juries and the people to help stay the hand of the criminal. I hive done this becauhe I am in full sympathy with law enforcement, and am. and have ever been, the s.vorn enemy of crime. I have stood b) the and God serving people of the district, and endeavored to give them protection. How well i. have succeed in this and in discharging all of the arduous duties of this most respon-- j sible office, and whether 1 have lived up to my oa h, I am willing to leave to the unbiased judgment of my constituency. 1 am willing to siauu oy m record ana oe juugeo iy it. aim amoving ttmt it war- rants me in asking for another term as judge, and kno-vtnth.it it is almost unbroken custom in this district to give a judge a second term as an endorsement of his conduct during his first, aud haing ascertained fiom a thorough investigation of coud tions m the d trict that there is little opposition to my re election, and that there is a strong popular demand from all the counties that I serve auother tenn, I, therefore, announce myself as ;i candidate for as judge of the 28th judicial d strict of Kentucky, subjoct to the aotion of the republican party at the next August primary election. I am making this announcement a little early, it is true, but I wnt now to assure the peop'.o of ihe district that my race will not interfere with my work as judge, and to this end, and in order that. I may be able to keep faith with the people, and live strictlyup to this pro nise, it is my present intention to make no speeches in my behalf until after the adjournment of court for the Summer vacation abqut the first of July 1915, after which time I propose to make a rigorous, but dignified, canvass of the entire district. Thanking you qjost cordially for your support in the past, and trusting that I may have the high honor of your endorsement and approval by a I beg to remain. Yours sincerely, P. J, BETHURUM.

Chicago, Jan. 6. By FRANCIS LAVELLE MURRAY. International News Service Correspondent Petrograd, Jan. 6.

The Germans are again on the offeu sive along this whole front, but the Russians are occupying positions of great strength and reports received from the front state that the Germans attacks are being repulsed at all points where their successful advance would prove a menace to the Russians. At some points the Germans have succeeded in capturing a few of the Russian trenches, only to lose them in counter-attack- s by the forces of Grand Duke Nicholas. The only point where the Germans have succeeded iu holding captured ground is about Boll mow, where they have taken part of the town of Borjimow. The Russians still hold their trenches on the east ern outskirts of Borjimow and are making night and day attacks to drlva the Germans back. The Germans suffered heavy losses In their capture of Borjimow and It Is Relieved that they will be unable to hold the ground they have won.

Sunday afternoon three German Zeppelins flew over the Russian positions in the forests about Kielce and dropped bombs upon the batteries hidden there. Only one gun was badly damaged.
