TO THE DEMOCRATS
OF LINCOLN COUNTY:
In the last issue of the Interior
Journnl Mr. Hill set forth nt length
his position on the liquor question
and asserted that he worked and vot
ed fbr Mr. McChcsney. It may be a
fact that ho voted for Mr. McChcs
ney but he first declared himself for
Mr. Cherry and after his withdrawal
he became n supporter of Mr. Bos
worth and only a few days before the
election did publicly .announce that
he would vote for Mr. McChcsney.
As to his connection with the re
cent closing of the hop joints in
Stanford the following are the facts:
Police Judce R. L. Davison ferreted
out the evidence, secured the taking
out of the warrant, hunted up the
lnw nnd I am informed by those who
attended the trial that my friend Mr.
Hill was so feeble nnd tendcrfooted
in the prosecution that the Police
Judge, himself, took an nctivc part
in the prosecution nnd often prevent
ed incompetent proof from going
before the jury without any objec
tions on the part of Mr. Hill and af
ter all the trial only resulted in a
hung jury. The real truth in the mat
ter is that the hop business had be
come so dull that the proprietors
voluntary offered to quit, provided
their licenses were refunded.
Now Mr. Hill has been city attor
ney for about one year and a half,
and it was believed by the good citi
zens of the city that he would put
"Hops" out of business. The same
law has been on the statute books all
the time and had Mr. Hill used the
proper efforts and energy he could
easily have prevented the hop joints
from taking out license or if he fail
ed in that he could have easily se
cured the proper prosecution and
would have long since freed the city
of same. ThcMyhole truth of the mat
ter is that the Police Judge is en
titled to the entire credit for trying
to stop the "nuisances" here in the
In regard to holding courts of in
quiry. Mr. Hill has been acting as
Mr. Burch's assistant for over a year
and he has had plenty of opportuni
ty (while the county has been pay
ing two salaries) to have made the
investigations and put out the hop
joints which he says exist in various
ports ot tlie county and wnicn no so
vehemently promises that he will do
if elected but has failed nnd refused
to do so.
My friend, Mr. Hill, fails to com
prehend that the road question is
one of the vital issues in this contest
and remains silent in regard to it
possibly due to the fact that he was
so closely alligned with Mr. Burch in
conducting the affairs of the county
during the nast year.
The people of this county have
school houses and churches but a
great many of the roads over which
they have to travel to get to them
have been sadly neglected and some
of them are almost impassable. They
have paid their taxes and all of it
has been spent on a few miles of
road and the greater portion of their
roads have been absolutely neglected
and the tax payers are vitally inter
ested in the manner in which thei'
road fund has been spent. I assert
and contend that too much extrava
gance has been indulged in and -that
only a few miles o froad have receiv
ed any benefit aMd this too by ex
ceeding the revenue of the county. I
repeat again that I am violently op
posed to State Aid system because of
too many salaries and of too great re
quirements in order to secure the
State Aid and because it is unfair to
those roads which are prohibited by
law from receiving State aid, and I
shall oppose with all my power the
continuance of such a system.
War. nestilence and famine mav
come but "taxation goes on forever"
and my motto will be. "An equal,
fair and Just division, by the fiscal
court of the road fund, throughout
the county in order to benefit as
many people as possible."
Our county's finances are some
what impaired at present and it will
take good mangement to conserve
the best interests of the county and
repair the roads-.
I am making this race of my own
volition. Neither the "wet" nor the
"dry" faction solicited me to run and
I want the votes of all the good citi
zens who are interested in the wel
fare of their county. I shall, if elect
ed endeavor not only to assist the
fiscal court in looking after the finan
cial interests of the county, but will
vigorously prosecute "all violations"
of the law to the best of my ability
without fear or favor.
Trusting that mv friends will use
every honorable effort in my behalf.
J. S. OWSLEY.

SALE WELL ATTENDED
The sale of A. T. Nunnelloy nt his
farm on the Prcachersvillc pike Sat
urday, was well attended. Col. John
B. Dinwiddic, as usual worked hard
for the high dollar. Good prices
were realized on most everything,
but on nccount of the high prices of
feed stuff nnd the scarcity of grass,
the bidding on live stock was slow.
There were a number of candidates
there shaking hands with their
fiends and each was confident of be
ing the nominee of the office ho seeks.
The following live stock was sold:
One-year-old stud to J. B. Lawrence
for $11; two-year-old filly to Jack
Snoonnmorc for $93; one-year-old

DR. W. B. HUNN KILLED
News came to Stanford Saturday
morning that Dr. W. B. Hunn, the
well-known Shelby City physician,
had suicided by shooting, but it turns
out that the killing was accidental, as
the following from the Danville Ad
vocate shows: Dr. Hunn had been
called to the Bodner residence to at
tend a member of the family who is
ill. He spent the night there. This
morning about daylight he started
out of the house carrying his coat on
his arm. In the coat he carried a re
volver, which dropped to the ground
as he stepped into the yard. The fall
caused the poistol to explode and the
charge struck Dr. Hunn in the breast,
ranging up. Death was instantaneous.
He was about forty-six years of age
and was a son of the late George
Hunn. He had been practicing medi
cine in the Junction City vicinity for
a number of years. He was a gradu
ate of Centre College, having been
valedictorian of the class of 1891. He
is survived by his wife.
SMALL FIRE DAMAGE
The home of Mr. M. D. Elmore on
West Main street was discovered on
fire Saturday morning but the good
work of the fire department and oth
ers soon had the flames under con
trol. Sparks from the kitchen flue had
set fire to the roof of a little store
room back of the kitchen and it was
burning brightly when discovered.
The damage will not exceed $200.
The property is well insured.
Mr. Elmore carried a policy on his
property and the insurance company
will pay for the repairs. Better let
Jesse D. Wearen fix you a policy on
your home. Mighty nice to let the
insurance people pay the bill after

none of it left, had not the young
lady done such excellent work. Mr.

Mrs. Taylor, but he frequently came
back to Hustonvillle, where he al
ways met a warm reception. Mr. Giv

entertained for the Senior Class. The
house was artistically decorated with
flowers and American flags. An in
teicsting feature of the evening was
a drawing contest. Each one was
supposed to make a sketch of some
one present. It was amusing, for
each one to see themselves as others
sec them. The pictures were judged
and Miss Matsy Grimes' production
of Francis Weatherford, and Maurice
Tucker's sketch of Miss Jean Paxton
were selected as the most original
and life like. Miss Grimes received

FINE BACCALAUREATE SERMON
The Buccnlnurente sermon prench
cd by Dr. J. W. Porter, of the First
Bnptist church of Lexington, nt the
Fir?t Baptist church Sundny night
was one of the best things of the kind
ever heard in Stanford. Although Dr.
Porter had trnveled a day nnd night
in coming from the Baptist conven
tion nt New Orleans, he showed no
sign of fatigue and put all tho life
necessary to make his sermon one
long to be remembered. His subject
was "The Century's Call for Culture"
nnd he gave many good reasons why
culture should be obtained, impress
ing his hearers that education was
essential to cutlurc. He told of the
advantages of tho boy nnd girl todny
over those of several decades ago anu
the comparative ease which an edu
cation can be had in this day of
graded nnd high schools. Said he:
"My father thought that the tutor in
the home or tho high-class colleges
were the only places for the young
to get their educations, but I am for
public schools where neither the fam
ily standing nor the clothes count,
but where merit i considered." He
paid a glowing tribute to the schools
of Kentucky as well as those who have
given of their time and talent in mak
ing them what they are. Ho admon
ished all of the graduates who could
possibly do so to get a collegiate edu
cation, and he hoped that if there
were those who craved such and were
not able to pay their way, that there
might be those who would help them.
"The men of means can make no bet
ter investment than to help the wor
thy under such circumstances. It is
better than nutting money in land.
cattle or bank stock," he shouted. Dr.
Porter urged all to be patriotic; to
stand for their country in this time
of trouble; to fight for it and give of
their means toward promoting war
fare. He congratulated the school for
having nt its hend a man who had
dedicated his life to his country in
time of battle. Said he: "There may
be some who think he should have
waited until commencement is over
before he left for tarining, but I
want to tell you that I admire the
manliness of the man and praise him
for his act." He had reference to
Prof. Wilson, who is at Fort Benia
min Harrison in training. He paid his
respects to those preachers who want
to go to war as chaplains and do
nothing but pray. "I have contempt
for such men." said he. "Let them
tro and fight in day time and nray
at night. That will show what is in
them. Dr. Porter did not strike a
Donular cord when he said the
preachers of Stanford did the wrong
thing when they gave way Sunday
night's services for the Chautauqua,
which will begin here next Sunday
afternoon, but the manv good things
he said made the audience forget
that The discourse lasted one and a
fourth hours and was given perfect
attention. It was a treat from begm
ningvto end and a sermon that will
live lone in the memory of those
who were fortunate enough to hear
it. Dr. P. L. Bruce occupied the pul
pit with Dr. Porter and read the
scripture lesson and made a fervent
prayer. Dr. W. U. Wclburn, wno had
a seat in the choir, also offered pray
er, as did Mr. J. C. McClary. The
choir was componed of tho best sing
ers in tQwn and the anthems sung
were heartily enjoved. The vocal so
lo by Miss Elizabeth Higgins was an
other of the good things of the mem
orable occasion. Miss Anne D. Mc
Roberts presided at the organ in her
usual excellent way. The pulpit wns
tastily decorated with palms and cut
flowers pnd was indeed a thing of
beauty. The graduates, who arc ns
follows, occupied the three pews next
to the nulpit: John Cash, Henley
Cash, Joe T. Embry, Miss Matsy
Grimes. Miss Marietta Gogtrin. Miss
Nellie Wilson Hill. Miss Elizabnth
Hunn. Miss Anna K. Matheny. Miss
Josephine Mathenv. Ferdinand Ma

LATEST WAR NEWS
A division of United States regu
lars will carry the Stars and Stripes
to France at the enrliest date prac
ticable. President Wilson has ordered
Mnj. Gen. Pershing to lead an expe
ditionary force to Frnncc to co-operate
with tho Anglo-French troops as
soon as it enn be made ready. Gen.
Pershing is n veteran of the Spanish
American War nnd led the Amcricnn
troops in the expedition into Mexico
last fall in search of the bandit Villa.
By proclamation the President also
has called upon the young manhood
of the country to respond to the se
lective military service call. The
drafted army will not be assembled
until September, Secretary of War
Baker has announced, but by that
time the regular American troops
probably will be in action against the
Germans. June 5 has been set apart
for all men between the ages of 21
and 30, both inclusive, to register for
military service, and all Federal nnd
local civil officers are required to give
their services in accomplishing the
registration. The Kentucky Nntional
Guard will be called into the Feder
al service on August 5.
One of the primary aims of Em
peror William in the war is to make
the Central Empires the backbone of
a Prussian world empire, consolidat
ing Germany, Austria-Hungary, Tur
key and Bulgaria into one strong
economic unit, a Washington dis
patch says. The major portion of the
program has been accomplished, re
irardless of the disposition of lands in
France, Belgium and Russia, and
much fighting will bo necessary to
set up a barrier to these plans.
All nvnilable American ships, the
