FOR CONGRESS IN
JUDGE L.W. BETHURUM.
(Prom Louisville Herald)
Politics is warming up in the
mountains. Considerable interest
is being manifested by republi
cans toward the Eleventh Dis
trict congressional race. Up until
yesterday names mentioned in
connection with the honor were
those ot Caleb Powers, the in
cumbent, of Barboursville, and
Don C. Kdwards, of London.
It developes that the contest is
likely to be a three-cornered pffair
and thu I,. W. Retburum, of Mt.
Vernon, Rockcastle County, will
have 10 be rtckoued with in the
August primaries. Mr. Bethurum

ine situation at present in the
Eleventh Distiict is somewhat
muddled, owing to the keen rivalry
between friends of Caleb Powers
Jd Don C. Edwards. Mr. Powers
is understood to be a supporter of
President Taft although what'
work he did in hehalf of the'
President prior to the State con-'
vention was kept orettv murli
under cover, according "to the view
taken by Senator Bradley It is
doubtful, therefore, if" Powers'
would be accorded the united
support of the Taft faction, not

personal following and would make
a good showing in the primaries
in the event President Taft1 is re
nominated. On the other hand Mr. Edwards
is an out-and out Roo.evelt mau
and should the Colonel capture the
nomination at Chicago he would
in al' likelihood, make a runaway I
race in the primaries. I
Now that there is talk of a
compromise candidate for Presi
dent the question is raised as to
whether it would not be a good
plan to nominate a "compromise"
man to make the congressional
race Friends of L. VV. Be
thurum say be is the logical man
to be nominated if circumstances
shape themselves as herein out
lined. Reduced Helm Majorities.
Mr. Bethurum, prior to the
perpetuat:ng of the congressional
district gerrymander by the last
Legislature, resided in the Eighth
Congressional District. Under the
provisions of the Pritchard act
hi county Rockcastle, wasdumped
While in 'the Eighth Eistiict, Mr
Bethurum twice made the race for
Congress against Harvey Helm,
the Democratic incumbent, and
both times succeeded in pulling
down the latter's majorities.
Mr. Bethurum is one of the best
known Republicans in Kentucky.
He was named delegate to the
national convention from the
Eighth District before the transfer
of his county to the Eleventh
District was recognized by the
State Central Committee. He
served one term as a member of
the latter body with distinction
to himself and aid to the party.
According to Mr. Bethurum's
friends the warm reception
tendered him by the political
powers of the Eleventh District

this par(. arQ undecided what to
do one of them "will tell you
that Ted is the man and the next
will say that Taft is the one
and here it goes. But there is
one thiug sure, we dems would
never have known that there was
such crookedness in the Rebu'bli
can party if Ted and Taft had
not got crossed at each other,
lust wait boys until the fix gets
to a fever heat and they will
tell the whole six yar,ds. Now
we democrats dout want to fol
low their example and have a
family row. No, we want to go
quietly on and nominate the
Hon. Champ Clark as our stan
dard bearer and on the election
day in November all march to
the polls and elect him to the
highest office in' the gift of the
Messes H. Witt and A. C.
Carpenter have installed a boiler
and engine and other machinery
at the mouth of Roundstone
creek to pull ties out of the
river. This is something that has
been,needed for some time at
that place for thousands of ties
that are rafted come there and
it is quite a difficult matter to
get them out, Taut those two
gentlemen have solved the
problem. The Town Board has
posted notices to the tax payers
and the last clause of the notice
read thus "And all pull together
for a cleaner and better town'
this is advice we should all take
We at one time had a tough town
and its name was scatterrd broad
cast but thanks to the stars and
stripes we are out of the ruts
again. The Dram shops have,
ceased to exist and hence lawli
ness has about expired, loafers
are gettiug scarce, we only have
a few now and we think their
aim is to make stout old men.

what we can gather there will
be great work at Pine Hill in the
near future. We are truly glad
and would be glad for something
like this to start up in our own
little burg but it looks like fate
has decreed against us. We
are only eleven miles from Mt.
vernon ana nave done all we
could to get out of the rut. We
believe now that somethins
should be done for our town.,
We have furnished our quoto of
fines and all we have asked for
is a bridge across Rockcastle
rivbr and we believe that justice
demands that we should have
one, we don't believe in kicktng
up a racket neither do we believe
in putting all the inprovements
n one place. Give us a bridge or
ione'end-of the pike and we will
be satisfied and if we don't get
either we will still be found con
tending for our rights. So whack
up Taoys tote fare and we will
ride to Mt. Vernon over a Dike
and then we will call this a fare
deal. Bernard Hagan still makes

ESCAPES AN AWFUL FATE.
A thousand tongues could not
express the gratitude of Mrs. J. E.
Cox of'Joliet, 111, for her wonder
ful deliverance Trom an awful
fate. "Typhoid pneumonia had
left me with adreadful cough, she
writes. "Sometimes I had such
awful coughing spells I thought I
would die. I could get no helpi
trom doctor's treatment or other
medicines till I used Dr. King's
New Discovery. But I owe my
life to this wonderful remedy ior I
scarcely cough at all now." Quick
and safe, its the most reliable of
all throat and lung medicines.
