(From The Irvine Sun)
That fine able gentleman of
merit and friend of Benttyville
Jadgo G. W. Gourley, was a
visitor in Irvine Thursday. Ho
is always welcome iu Irvine for
the people here and Estill county
have a great admiration for the
candidate for the Republican
nomination to the Appellate
The Judge feels mighty good
over the prospects for his success
at the primary polls, and if Estill
county could be taken as an Index,
he would have little difficulty in
receiving a handsome majority
over all the opponents and lead
ing Republican of Estill county
stated today that he would receive
at least one thousand majority
in Estill, county. The Judge
states, with a great deal of con
fidence, that he will carry (Mark,
Estill, Powell, Lee, Owsley, Wolf
and Breathitt counties by a ma
jority of seventy-five per cent
ot tne total vote, in rnese coun-
ties, he is intimately known and
wherever he is known, it. seems
that nearly every man is for him
good and strong.
Judge Gourley is not a noisy
campaigner, but he is conducting
tin's race in a quite, judicious and
convincing' manner. Be makes
friends easily and holds them
Not only is Judge Gourley
strong in the several counties in
this part oft ho Seventh district
but he ..will receive a fluttering
vote from the other counties
where the bulk of the vote will
naturally be divided- among the
other candidates who are waging
strong campaigns in those coun
ties After Bhaking hands, with his
many friends and "substantial
adherents here, ho left for Mt.
Sterling feeling fine, fit, young
and confident of success at the
Scared the Boys.
Some wags around town per
petrated a mighty mean joke on
the baud boys Wednesday night,
and caused some of them to lose
a night's rest. With the aid' of
n telegraph blank and the con
nivance of Professor White, the
bandmaster, a telegram was sent
to the latter, announcing that
the entire band, consisting of
eighteen pieces, was called ou to
volunteer for service at the
training camp, with a possibility
of aotive service ou the Mexican
border. When the telegram was
exhibited at practice time, it was
a sight to see the "cold feet'
that developed, and for a husky
looking bunch of young follows
it was surprising how many had
some ailment which would pre
vent their going to the front.
It is said that Grnu Ilackworth
and Joe Mountz denied being
afraid to go, but "there wives
wouldn't Jot them." Syl Larisou
was also very anxious to take his
drum along, but said he had a
badcoru and couldn't tund the
marching. Some of them have
not been seen since the call was
announced, nnd we are publish
ing (his in order to relievo their
minds and inform them that the
joke was ou thorn.
