The people ci this section are iamiliar with the records of both Mr. Stanley aud Mr. Bosworth They know their views on the liquor question. They know the interest in Kentucky today which were behind Stanley in every race he has ever made. They know where he has always stood on the liquor qnestion. They also know the record of Henry Bosworth. His record is spotless. Not a single charge has ever been bmught against him. He has made one of the very best public omcTaT-s- the State has ever had. They know where he stands on all questions. He stands for the farmer and labaring man and has saved them hundreds of dollars in taxes by making the big corporations pay their just share of taxation. Theie have been charges and couuter charges hurled back and fourth between the other candidates but no one has ever made any charges against Bosworth. His record both public and private is beyond reproach. Dr. J. W. Porter, noted temperance lecturer of Kentucky League, strongly endorses and Vice President of the never been alligned with, any Mr. Bosworth. boswortn has factional fights in the State. No one has aught against him. If nominated as he will be by a big plurality he can unite the party in November as.no other candidate can hope to do. There is no gainsaying this. He is admirably fitted to give the State a splendid business administration, something which is sorely needed in Kentucky. Why weaken his chances and advance the chances of Stanley by casting your vote for other candidates when the race is between these two.

VERNON KENTUCKY (From The Somerset Journal) The Republican party has met in convention and adopted their platform. It is also a foregone conclusion that Mr. Edwin P. Morrow will be nominated, practically without opposition, as their sranderd bearer, so it is no longer a matter of speculation as to what the Democratic pirtv will have to face in the final battle m November. The nominee and the platfcrm of the rominee of the enemy is now known. The primary election is only a few weeks off and it is now time that the Democratic voters make up their mind as to whom they will cast their vote lor to be the standard bearer of the Democratic party in November.

Before contracts are binding on first parties they must receive the approval of the commissioner of Public Roads. Each bid shall be accompanied by cash or certified check, payable at sight to the county nedy now pretends to know. The facts briefly, as shown in the opinion of the Court of Appeals, are as follows: McBeath procured Kennedy to sign his note to the bank, and to indemnify Kennedy against loss, he exocuted to Kennedy a mortgage on a interest in a 7o acre tract of land lying within 4 miles of Monticello. The note and mortgage fell due in six months, at which time McBeath was on his death bed stricken with Bright's disease. Kennedy, upon getting the farm for $39.00, the amount of the said bent note went to his office and prepared a deed from Jordon McBeath and his wife to himself conveying the whole tract of land for a consideration of 39.00 (and McBeath owned and had a perfect title to the whole tract of 7o acres of land). He then rode out to the old darkies and represented to them that the deed was a mortgage, and got them to sign the deed by making these untrue representations. Jordon McBeath died within ten days after the deed was made. A son in law afterward, and within six months sold a mule and procured the and deposited the money it in banic and wrote Kennedy that he wanted to pay off the mortgage, butKennely disco uraged him and did not take the mone'. Then Henry McEeath, a son, raised the money and went to Monticello a number of times to pay off the mortgage, and the proof showed that Kennedy declined to see him, and dodged him and would not take the money, and that as soon as the six months expired and the very next day, Keunedy sold the land to his father-in-lafor a good profit. His father-i- n law demanded possession of the land but they refused to vacate the premises, claiming that the paper that the old man signed was only a mortgage. A suit! was niea to put me oiu uarsies 011 tde place, ana tney employed a lawyer to defend. The proof was taken and Kitty McBeath, the widow, Jay and Henry McBeath, sons, swore that Kenned came to their home and represented to them that the deed was a mortgage and that these old people signed the instrument with that under standing. The judge, who had taken an oath to be fair even to old ignorant darkies, read the proof carefully and decided that the paper was a mortgage and not a deed and dismissed the petition. Kennedy appealed the case to the Court of Appeals, and the highest court in Kentucky decided the case just like Judge Bethurum ueciueu u ana neia mac me instrument was not a deed but a mortgage, and in doing so used this significant language: "The consideration is grossly inadequate, and the transaction, therefore oppressive if the instrument is held to be a deed". Kennedy raves when he hoars that this matter is being discussed in his campaign, and that the people are insisting that a man who would lak advantage of old, ignorant and sick colored people in this way and try to get their farm, the savings of a lifetime, for nothing, is unworthy of their uotes tor the high office of circuit judge. He claims that parts of the opinion of the Court of Appeals are left out. The part that is left out is unimportant. There is enough of it published to snow all the material facts, and the discussion, by the' court, of the law, is uninteresting to the people. They want the facts, and the opinion published fully shows what the facts are. If Kennedy had wanted to play fair with these old colored people why did he try to get their farm worth from 200 to $400 for tlie little sum of 39? And why did he go out to their little humble home in the countiy and take the acknowledgement to himself by himself? Why did he not take some disinterested officer who could be" a witness to the transaction, if he was not bent upon a mission of wrong and oppression? Old man McBeath was almost dead that day and his wife swore that his mind was "waivery" and that she did not know whether he had mind sufficient to know the nature of the instrument that he was singing or not. She was sure that she and her husband thought they were signing another mortgage. It is quite a while, till the primary erection. The people have plenty of time to read the full opinion of the Court of Appeals and we invite them to do so. The opinion is found m voluran 1G2, page 382, Kentucky Reports, and auy lawyer will have this work in his office.

EdwardB, of Jefferson County, one of the most prominent lawyers in the state, has announced his candidacy for the Democratic nomination for Lieutenant Governor. His platform is, briefly, better schools, improved public highways, economy in state affairs, abolishment of unnecessary expensive offices, revision of tax laws so as to relieve overtaxed properties and taxation of such property as now avoids taxation, favors the present County Unit Law for regulation of the liquor tiafllc as passed by the legislature In compliance with the Democratic platform of 1911, which is the fundamental law of the party, and opposes Statewide prohibition as unnecessary as a temperance measure, a menace to the overburdened taxpayers, and contrary to both the National ami of the party. Mr. Edwards was a candidate for Lieutenant Governor In 1911, and was defeated by Mr. Edward J. McDermott, the present Lieutenant Governor, now a candidate for Governor, by a plurality of 1,562 votes In the State, though Mr. Edwards carried Jefferson County over Mr. McDermott by over State-platforms at the Panama-Pacifi- c International Exposition.
