In Hi 2, my brother got the nomination without opposition but I am told Ed wards went to Corbin and helped to get Stavy out against him on a new ticket, and helped Seavy against my brother in the final election.

ANOTHER LIE NAILED. Mr. Edwards issued a circular to the publ c a few days ago in which he states that the voters of Laurel County as a man were for him, and that 1 have been circulating a lie in saying Wm Lewis and other prominent Republicans of Laurel ware for me. Now lets see who is telling the truth about this matter. Read' the following letter from Judge Wm. Lewis. I have the original in my possession: Manchester, Ky., July 8th, 1918. M. Robsion, Hon J. Barbourville, Ky.

Moreover, I knew Mr. Edwards was promising to support g with me in trying to have our friends line up for to go to Congress, and he breaks his solemn promise We want a you you, and 1 never dreamed of his becoming a candidate. I like man to go to Congress who regards his word as his bond. Mr. Edwards Is a double dealer, in that he will not keep Mr. Edwaids. We live in London and I have always 8. been his faith, violates his promises, hypocritically chums friendship for personal and political friend, and hope to remain such, and have Caleb Powers, whom he bas bitterly fought for many years. He openly and actively supported him heretofore in all his races for thereby relinquishes all just claims to the respect and confidence of Congress, and under the circumstances I must confess his entering this race puts me in somewhat of an embarressing position, his fellow citizens. q.

Robsion has been approached by a number of friends about the circular letter and faithful to the party all his life, but has never before sought office. my attention called to the fact that it was doing me an injustice, The Good Book teaches us that the reward goes to the faithful and but I had not seen the circular and didn't know what it contained but I now assure vou that if there is anything in it that insinuates not to the unfaithful. Edwards has not. made a speech for the nominee of the that I am not for you, then to that extent it misrepresents me, and lo. Republican party since I9I0.
