It is generally predicted by
thinking men that Mr. Jas. Gar
nett, of this place, will be named
.as the nomii.ee of the Democrat
ic party for Attorney General at
the State May primary. This
opinion being general, there is a
reason for it, a good one, when
the situation is properly viewed.
It is known throughout the State
that the Eleventh Congressional
district i s largely Republican,
and to cut down the majority,
the Eleventh's candidate for a
State effice must be a man of
wide acquaintance, possessing
personal magnatism, and known
to be a man of fine ability and
well qualified for the position he
seeks. These requisites have
been discussed by thinking party
men all over Kentucky, and it is
asserted from all corners that
Mr. Garnett can poll more votes
than any Democrat ever received
in said district. He is known in
every county in the State and his
name is perfectly familiar to the
voters in the Eleventh, his prac
tice extending to several counties
in the tei ritory. He is not only
a successful lawyer at home, but
his ability as an attorney i s
known throughout the State. He
is less than forty years of age,
possessing vitality and activity
and one of the best known vote
getters in the Commonwealth.
Like his lamented father, Judge
James Garnett, he is a man of
sterling character, who will be
found on the right side of everv
proposition in which the State's
interest is at stake tvill do his
duty honestly, and fearlessly,
and would make the Common
wealth one of the best Attorney
Generals it ever had. He will
be busy at home for the next
few weeks, as the Adair
circuit court will be held in this
month. After i t closes, Mr.
Garnett will take the field and
will make an effort to visit all
the counties in the State before
the May primary. Keep h i s
name before you, remembering
that with Garnett on the State I
ticket that the Republican ma-'
jonty in the Eleventh will be
greatly reduced and that his
general vote will be serprisingly
