. Addresses Democrats of
To The Democrats of Ohio County:
Upon the eve of the primary, at which ydu will se
lect your nominee -tor Circuit Judge, I want to take this
opportunity to address you.
I hare bad the pleasure of meeting a large number
of Democrats throughout the District, Including Ohio
County, but I found It impossible tomeet all of them.
Consequently I address you through your county paper.
' My public career and private life have been and are
now open to Investigation. As to my qualifications for
the high office or Circuit Judge, I believe you will be
satisfied by a- perusal of the statement of my former as
sociates at the bar of Union County, which appears
el3ewhere In these columns, and to which I invite your
attention. I hope the judgment of those gentlemen, a
well as thai, of my present professional colleagues, will
satisfy the voters.
I have always been - a Democrat and have' never
scratched the ticket. I have never failed to support with
my best efforts every candidate nominated by my party
aud will suppcrt every nominee In the present primary
wholeheartedly and will use my best efforts in the final
election to bring success to our party.
In the beginning of this campaign my opponent
challenged me for a Joint debate. While I had a, great
desire to meet him I felt It would Jeopardize the success
of our ticket In Novemfier-and I waived aside my de-'
sires In the Interest of my party.
I am able to say to my friends In Ohio County that
the reports received from up-standing men in the other
counties indicate strongly that I will carry every county'
. in the District. Good news comes to me from every
section of Ohio County, and it looks as If the good
county of Ohio will give me a majority of at least four
to one, but-1 earnestly request my friends to be alert
for the few remaining hours of the campaign and to.
make the majority as large as possible, which will help
us win in November.
Thanking each for every kind word spoken for me

To the Democratic Voters of the Sixth Judicial Dis
As a candidate for the Democratic nomination
for the important office of Circuit Judge, I am asking
for your support and influence. I realize that, owing
to the great number of Democratic voters in the four
counties of the district, it will be impossible for me to
see many of them and that my friends can render me
a very great serviec by speaking to their friends in my
I have always endeavored to -stand for that
which was for the interest of the people, and, if
elected, it shall be my constant aim and purpose to
see that every person who has business in the Circuit
Courts of this district gets fair treatment and a
square deal in accordance with the laws of our
I am not the candidate of any little coterie of de
signing lawyer, who hope to control the high office
cf Circuit Judge to promote' their own selfish ends,
and, if elected, no lawyer or set of lawyers will be
judge by proxy during my term of ofrice.
I was born and reared in this district and for
tunately am known to mosc of you, and I do not have
to give you any refererc:: to my standing as a citi
zen or as to my qualifications for the ofrice to which
I aspire. You also know of my services to our party.
Its success now is important," and in my opinion it
would be unwise for the Democrats of this district
to nominate a candidate for Circuit Judge to head
our ticket this year, who is the operator or manager
of a non-union coal mine.
The reports from every section of the district in
dicate that the sentiment of the people "over
whelmingly for me, but I realize that the mails are
being flooded by the opposition and that monsy is
being freely used against me,' and that false and ex
travagant claims of strength are being made to hood
wink and deceive the people, and I earnestly ask cy
friends to be diligent to offset these efforts.
Thanking you for the interest which vou have
shown in my candidacy, I remain,
Yours very truly,
