The measure as adopted fixes the maximum amount of money that may be spent by any candidate for an office in Kentucky, including the primary and general election. The amounts follow: Governor, $20, 000; other state officers, ?lu,000; Rail road Commissioner and Judge of the Court of Appeals, $6,000; Circuit Judge and Commonwealth's Attorney, $5,000; county officials in counties having cities of first class, $5,000; county in counties having cities of the second class, $4,000; county officials in counties having cities of the third class. $3,00O; county officials in all other counties, $2,000; Representatives, $700; Senators, "$2,000; for an other office, city, county or district not mentioned, $1,000. The bill repeals the statute which requires two witnesses to convict foi bribery in elections.
