Judge Hargis Withdraws.
Judge Hargis issued a card yes
terday announcing his withdrawal
as a candidate to succeed himself in
the Fourth Appellate District. On
Sunday last, at the Blue Lick
Springs, he counciled with the
News in regard to -this action,
stating that an opening for a law
partnership with the Hon. Tsaac

option, and if accepted, an office
would he opened in Louisville and
one in Frankfort, with a view of
practicing specially in the Court of
Appeals and the Supreme Court.
In his card he says:
"Since my announcement as a candidate
a propitious opportunity to return
to the practice of law has been offered
me, and duty to my family and business
affairs demands that I shall avail myself
of it. That duty is made imperative by
the financial pressure imposed upon me
by others and not by any act of my own,
and while I would be glad to give the
best energies of my young smanhood to
the judiciary of my native State, yet, believing

can best be borne by those who are free
from the troublesome obstacles which
haye been thrown across ray path, I have
concluded, for the purpose of removing
those obstacles, to voluntarily retire from
a candidacy ha?dly begun, in which act I
have every assurance and reason to believe
that I decline certain success "
