Democrats In Good Shape Every
Where And Ready For
The Voting
i
fc I t The closing days of the campaign n
find the Democratic organization in
all sections ot the county Many
precincts have sent in word that
needed that
no more speeches are
the boys are all in line and ready
for the voting
In more than one half of the dis
tricts there are no McKinley Demo
crats who are known as such to
their neighbors It is not believed
that 100 people in the county who
weie ever Democrats will vote with
the Republicans in favor of imper
ialism carpetbaggery trusts and
government by assassination
These defections will be made up I
by accessions from these Republi
jfens In nearly every precinct
there are some of these honest Re
publicans who draw the line at as
sassination and will not vote for
the man who wrote the platform en
dorsing the crimes of Taylor Un
tier the new taw a floater cannot
vote unless he gives a written affi
davit that he is a qualified voter in
j the precinct in which he votes and
these affidavits are required to be
turoed over to the next grand jury I
who must report upon them and in
dict all who swore falsely and the
penalty is 2 to 5 years in the peni
r tentiary This will make fraudu
Ifent voting and registration a risky
business in the future Monday
Tuesday and Wednesday of next
i week are the supplementary regis
tratibn days in the city and those
who swear falsely to register will
go up against this affidavit oath
when they try to vote
There are 150 negroes not regis
tered and the Democratic committee
has had the list investigated and
many of them cannot lawfully get
their names on the books It is be
lieved that most of them will obey
the instructions from Republican
leaders and try to register unlaw
fully Those who succeed in vio
latingthe law will be challenged
when they try to vote The Demo
crags iedetermhied to break up
Republican frauds in Christian
county if the State is forced to build
i another branch penitentiary

at West Louisville Thursday night

other appointments the enthusiasm

The Court House was packed to
overflowing Saturday to hear a
they
best political address heard here 1
for years
Hon E W Carmack the young
Congressman from the Memphis
district came a stranger but left
witha thousand ardent admirers
among the best Democrats in Ken
tucky > < i
His speechwas secured through
the personal efforts of Mr Webb Ci
Bell Chairman of the Speakers
Committee of1 the Democratic county
organization who was schoolmate
of the distinguished orator
The speech Was two hours and
ten minutes long and many people
stood Up to hear it all It aroused
the enthusiasm of the audience to
the highest pitch and brought into
line a number of wavering Demo
j
crats
He began by appealing to the
Kentucky Democrats to put aside
their family quarrels and fight to
gether against Republicanism for i
party victory in the State and na
tion It was ghoulish he said to I
drag Goebels body through this
campaign Then he launched into
a terrific arraignment the admin
istration for its policy of imperial
ism andthe Republican party for
its alignment with trusts
It was a votewinning speech
and its points were time and again
cheered to the echo At its con
elusion hundreds of people gathered
around Mr Carmack and he was
given a great ovation wasI
Mr Carmack is a young man of
commanding presence and wonder
ful oratorical talents and graces
As an orator I he is destined to oc
cupy the front rank and whin he
becomes a Senator he is already
virtually nominated hie State will
have further reason to be proud of
her gifted son

The poor powder would cost
many times this in doctors bills
Royal Baking Powder may cost a little
more per can but it insures perfect
