bv Mr Smith who was the first to

s Vlmerly a Kentuckian but has resided

AVinn His address was not a leng
thy one but it was well received He
+ snoke in part as follows
1Mr Smiths Speech
My country men J When I was no
tified in Chicago last night to come
< io Kentucky I felt that there was
no other ulace in the wprld that i
would rather go to than here unless
it was dear old Cyuthiana my old
home 9 t
rThere is no place in the United
States that the people are more like
Irishmen than Kentuckians Where
ever you go and find them you find
them united and trying to protect the
name of Kentucky
y This election means more than
anything else to us The Republi
cans are building up everything that
f 1 abb
solute prohibitive tariff has been the
f
a mother of trusts
Take for instance the steel trust
1 iron trustsall the products made in
this country are sold from 10 to 40
per cent cheaper in Russia than they
are at home
onr
r the farm such as wire fence plows
etc that is the same way
Only Five Millionaires
1 can remember when there were
v
only five millionaires in the United
States and now there are four or
I five in each trust and the trusts are
trying to keep themselves in power by
e buying the election and expect to get
it back afterwards
We know there is a successor to
the Czar of Russia and we know that
i Mr Roosevelt nominated Mr Taft
to succeed him and that Taft had to
a
read his letter to the President be
fore he gave it out to the American
people
He took up the appropriations and
said that 241000000 more was ap
propriated by the last Con rresb in
pthe
the time of peace than was appro
priated during the Civil War
He wound up by asking those who
had wandered from the Democratic
fold to return as did the prodigal
r son He said that the good people
from Arizona who were trying to get
into the Union wanted to scca
change in the administration
Mr Smiths speech interspersed
with enthusiastic applause
i J Thorne Speaks
ExLieut Governor Thorne was
introduced by Capt Hathaway He
was greeted with applause Gover =
nor Thorne said he wished he could
x
impress the importance < of the corn
ing election on all He hoped that
you all present will appreciate the
fact that you have only one chance
every four years to vote and if you
do not embrace the opportunity it will
be your fault
t
At Frankfort we adopted the merry
go round system You ride the horse
this time I will ride the mule and
change from horse to mule the next
time JJ etc and the people would not
stand for it It was not the Re
r publicans electing their ticket They
L could not elect a ticket in Kentucky

RIDICULED BY TAFT

tion Plank
Evansville Ind Oct 23The first
of the three days he is to spend in In
diana William H Taft has talked to
more people than on any previous day
of this campaign At each of his 16
speeches the listeners and applauders
have numbered thousands Rejuven
ated in voice energy and enthusiasm
by his one day of rest the candidate
handled the campaign issues with
even a greater degree of posifiveness
than heretofore In the very first
speech he made he ridiculed Mr
Bryans charge of bribery In con
nection with the promises of employ
ers to their employes of more work
with Republican success and the or
ders of business men for goods said to
be made contingent on the same re
sult These were not bribes he said
but business They did not represent
false conditions but facts
Judge Taft talked to many labor au
diences and it was noticeable that
what he said was more educational
than heretofore At Linton where he
spoke to several thousand coal miners
he g ve them the kistory of the writ
of Injunction something he has not
previously done At Terre Haute he
made a clear distinction between the
Republican and Democratic platforms
on the use of the Injunction and de
clared business to be property
While Mr Bryan was not over
looked during the day there were two
occasions wken Candidate Debs came
In for attention These were at Terre
Haute the home of Debs and at the
two meetings at Evansville addressed
by Judge Taft In both instances Mrf
Debs was classed as a Socialist a doc
trine regarding which the candidate
expressed the belief that the Ameri
can people were not prepared yet to
accept Ji
