Governor he would ask the Legislature to make even a larger reduction in the tax rate Judge Hager also dealt with the charge made by the Republicans regarding the fee paid jo the architect for drawing the plans for the new State Capitol He said he had no apologies to make for the actual expense incurred in the se lection of the architect and only wanted to show the falsity ot the charge that 85000 was to be paid to the architectJ when infact it was only said the building of the capitol had been accomplished without costing the taxpayers a dollar and with a reduct ion instead of an increase in the tax rate Hesaid it was perhaps true that l architect could hav6 been secured at al much Smaller figur than was called for by the contract entered into ber tween the Capitol Commission and ArCchitect Andrews but that the s ion wanted to know that the people of Kentucky were sure Of a building that would be an honor and a credit to them for all time to come As the State was able to secure such a capitol without any extra expense to the tax the co mission had labored fSaithfullyJudgej Hager on the new capitol must have met with tle approval of the vast audience as he was greeted

assembled hre today Judge S W Hager of Boyd county nominee of the party for jgdvernor of the cpmmon wealth made the initial speech of his campaign Outlining a party plat form for the planks of which he ttdd when seeking the nomination and which was adopted by the voters of the party wen they nominated him r pointing out jthe many good features of Democratic administration in the past seven Vsnd pne half years and insuring the jpeopleof the state that Kentucky will not tie behind in pro jgrssiyeness in Jibe next four years If Democracy is continued in power Judge Bagers address made a splen did impression He spoke as follows Mr Chairman Ladies and Gentlemen The time has come when the voters of this commonwealth are to choose omcerswhto perform the duties and exercise the powers pertaining to the different departments of the executive branch of the state government It is for betheby what principles in what manner and under what policies the affairsi JUDGE S W HAGER of the state shall be administered Indeed it is the province of the in their sovereign wisdom to vdtersi arid prescribE in a great measure if not wholly the very lines along which state vaffairs shall be conducted for as has been said it is they who finally I determine all matters of government al policy This being true it is of the highest importancethat each in dividual voter whatev may have been Qrmny now be hjsarty affllic tion should consider thoughtfully and carefully the claims made by the two political parties for his support For If error creeps iin if mistakes are made ad evil ensue the blow falls heaviest t upon the individual whose property is tax d to support and maintairi the 3 state government and its institutions and whose prosperity and happiness depend upon the policies and princi pIes behind the governing power and the fidelity with whjch they are en d forced The ultimate responsibility tlien for good or evil in state affairs resting in the voter it Is but fur and Just to him in order that he may act with intelligence that the candidates seeking his suffrage should give a full arid complete expression of the views they represent upon the various ques tions and issues which most nearly afffcctJhira and his interests and the interests of the state at large It is of the utmost iimpontance to him that he should know tiese views and knowing them and thoughtfully consid ering them it should be his duty to act upon them conscientiously as his judgment may dictate Mr Byan says platforms should be made by jthe voters that plat forms should be the expression of the Fishes of the voters of the party and arbitrary production of a few leaders There are two ways in which guch a consummation may be reached The first is by the election of dele gates to agnominating convention who In their canvass for election present 4 for the consideration of the voters a statement1 of principles arid policies for which they stand and for whichr they will contend as members of the Convention Delegateselected under jicti conditions may truly Speak for the voters and in such way the voters D3rtriake the platform But even n re is still opportunity form Ipulat1on by the fine Italian hafcd of the arbitrary party leader Tre econd and surer way is through th medium of a primary election lift which the iiarty nominees are chosen t l Jr directly by the Tpters themselves that candidate for nomina Ion being chos en whose declaration of policies and and whose attitude toward public aTairsprove sa Jsfactory to the voters In this way the platform Jsmade by the

fpur years hence rwill be a Candidate for the United States senatorship Will Not Again Be a Candidate Fellow citizens I am profoundly grateful to the people pf Kentucky for ttiegrea t honors that have Cdmeto m e through their generous bestowal of C9rifidehce and trust and whether r not Jam still further honored by their continued confidence by being l v ted to the chief magistracy pf my state I say most positively I will not be a candidate for the United States senate or any other office with ntheglft of the people of Kentucky the noblest and proudest constituen cy that any man in the civlllzed world everserved Mr Willson has been a candidate or twentyfive years and the nominee f his party for state senator once a nd for congress four times but with much regularity and great precision and perfect ease he has each time een defeated All this however ld not militate against him now for he Is not a candidate but a mis- lonary I understand he feels that e has been calI dbut you have oubtless read that many are called ut few are chosen- PublicPrinting An Explanation of Laws Mr Willson in his poverty of cam paign thunder has undertaken to draw an indictment against the Democratic administration for the payment of a printing bill for 28000 for 19000 teachers registers and trustees rec ord books made by th e second class priIterand furnished to the counties fn 1902 The charge is that the work could have been done for several thousand dollars less if it had be nas signed to the first class printer The law classifies the work and the board has nothing whatever to do with assigning work In the first place It is the duty of the printing commission composed of the gQvernor auditor treasurer secretary or state and attoney general every two years to let all the public printing which is by law divided into fourclasseR to ftie lowest and best bidder ThQ other duty of this board Is to pass upon bills presented by the public printers for work done for the state When a contract for the print ing of any class is awarded to a bid er he is required by law to enter into a bond with the state to furnish all printing of that class to the state for two years at the contract price When tills is done the state guarantees to the printer all of the printing of theclass embraced in his contract The printing commission has nothing whatever to do with ordering any worK from the printer The heads of the departments make requisitions upon the printer from time to time for work as it is needed in the various departments The superintendent of publIc instruction onco every four years makes a requisition Upon the printer for ooks that the law re quires to be urnlshed to the teachers and trustees of the state to be Kept Ias records in their respective dis In 1902 the superintendent of pub lie instruction following the prece dent set by Qoverilor Bradley and administration ordered from Henry Bacon the contractor to whom the second class wlnting had been award ed 19000 of these books which c ere shipped toth various counties f the stale A bill or 28000 was presei ted for the work 111 the board comp sed or for Demo rats and one Republi an Hon Clifton Pratt

committee the Central Con sumers company made a campaign contribution of 3500 to our commit 0 j tee upon my promise to protect the saloon interestsiThat statement Is not correct in V 1903 Col Chas P Dehler who I be lleVe was secretary of the Brewers association came to Democratic headquarters and informed me that he was going to make a contribution jto the campaign fund and later did conC
