tucky electors will meet here thesec
ond Monday in January and cast the
thirteen votes of the state forWood

to carry the good news to Washing

a hot tip for winner. He got into
the race immediately after the state
convention, and had several of the
democratic candidates for elector
pledged to him in the event they
were elected. Oscar Vest, sergeant-at-arms

a candidate, but it is understood he
is not seeking it. He wants back his
old position of keeping dignity in
