The Ohio County Republican Ex
ecutive Committee met at the court
houBe In' Hartford, Ky at 1 o'clock
p. m., Saturday, August 31, 1912,
pursuant to the call of the County
Chairman, R. Q. Martin, and also
the call of the State Central Com
mittee, to carry out the resolution
passed by tho Republican State
Central Committee at a meeting of
the said committee held In Louls
ivllle, Ky., on August 7, 1912. Com
mittee was called to order by Chair
man Martin. Mr.
rades and friends who have been
keeping step with us for years In
county, State and national cam
paigns, and who with us will not
follow the mere party name when It
falls into the hands of corrupt and
dishonest men, who care neither
for principles nor the right of the
people to have a voice in the mak
ing of their platforms or the selec
tion of their nominees.
"A few years ago we denounced
the nomination of William Goebel
by the Democrats of Kentucky, and
praised those of that party who
would not stand for his nomination.
We will be consistent and not fol
low a nomination which Is much
worse than the Goebel nomination,
as the number of States participat
ing In it exceed Kentucky.

In previous dispatches It was
not Intended that any reflection

Washington. Aug. 31. Governor
Wilson hns Indicated In the
speeches he has made thus far in
"he campaign that. he attaches a
great deal of Importance to the
question of the tariff as It affects
farmers. The Democratic cimll
dnte put this wholn. question Into a
nutshell when he said:
"The farmer does not derive any
benefits from the tariff when ho
goes to market to sell his products,
hut on everything the farmer buys
there Is an artificially high price
due to the tariff tax."
High protectionists in Congress
have for ninny years deceived the
farmer Into believing that because
a tariff Is kept on wheat and corn,
the fanner Is necessarily benefited
thereby, That this Is falno logic, la
apparent to any student of Ameri
can Import flu& .export statistics.

by the most high-handed and bra

people known In the annals of his

It was more than a sotting asldo of

was a rape of the principles of self
