MARION, CRITTENDEN COUNTY, KENTUCKY, APRIL 11, 1912.
OWE M. JAMES
Hon. Denny P. Smith of Cadiz,
Candidate for Congress from
In this issue of The Crittenden
Record-Press appears the formal
announcement of Hon. Denny P.
Smith of Trigg county, for Con-1
gress. Mr. Smith's entry into
the race is of much interest to
the Democrats of Crittenden
county not only because of his
known fitness for representative
in Congress, and his long and
able service to the Democratic
party, but also because he has
always been the close personal
and political friend of Crittenden's
own gifted son, Senator-elect
Ollie M. James. In Mr.
James' hard fight to get the
nomination of a United States
Senator included in the last state
primary, he had no truer friend
and few, if any, more effective
ones to stand by him in the battle
than Mr. Smith; and just here it
may not be amiss to say that,
perhaps, the one thing which en
dears Denny Smith so closely to
the hearts of those who know
him best, is the fact that he is
fearless, stands for high ideals
in politics and in public service
and does not hesitate to wage
war for them when necessary.
Mr. Smith was born in Trigg
county, forty-five years ago, on
a farm, and labored on the farm
in spring and summer seasons
and in timber in fall and winter
until he was nineteen years of
age. He was educated in the
public schools, Bowling Green
Normal School and in Kentucky
State College. At nineteen he
taught the public school in the
school district where he was born
and with the proceeds spent two
terms in the Bowling Green Normal
School. After that in Sept.
1888, with between fifty and sixty
dollars only, he entered the
State College at Lexington and
worked at odd hours on the Experiment
farm at 10 cents per
hour for three years to pay for
books, clothing, etc. For one
year more he assisted in the
Chemical Department of the
College at the same meager
waees. and the fifth vear assist
ed in the Bilotrical Dennrtmont
and graduated in the degree of
Bachelor of Science in June 1893
with high honors During the
term of five yeaas he earned all
his expenses by hard labor, and
so close was the contest to keep
up his studies and at the same
time keep the wolf from the
door, that he had to remain there
and work on the farm during
summer vacations, having the
means to go back to Trigg county
to visit his ngd father anp
mother only twice in hve years.
He taught the Cadiz Public
school three jears after graduation
and at the same time studied
law under the instructions of
Hon. Fen ton Sims, and was admitted
to the bar in 1S95.
He was twice elected County
Attorney of Trigg cwunty, and
in 1905 was elected Commonwealth's
Attorney of the 3rd
Judicial district, and was reelected
without opposition to the
same office, which position he
He has made an able and fearless
prosecuting attorney and
has endeared himself to his
people as none but a positive
character with honest purpose
could have done. His successful
prosecution of the Acme Mills &
Elevator Company cases, a prosecution
involving the investigation
of books covering more than
seven millions of dollars of business
transaction?, to discover the
guilt of the accused, has shown
him a master of figures and detail
as well as a strong, painstaking
Trained in the school of hardship
and labor, his sympathies
are with the laboring people, and
he has taken their side of every
question. In Congress the people
could have no more faithful representative.
Nothing need be said here of
his democracy or party service.
His loyalty and ability have been
shown, in too many hard fights,
to require comment from us. Being
a skillful politician of honest
purpose and a man scrupulous
integrity he is a most valuable
man to the struggling masses.
With his experience and character,
no son of toil need fear the
tricksters or the srhprnnrs
against the people's interest can
either tool lum or buy him.
Now in the ficrht we niwlinf:
that he will be a most dangerous
antagonist to any and all who
mav oDnose him for tlm hiVh
honor of ronrpspntiniv tlio flih.
