The Day of Ballots.
The arguments in the presidential
campaign of 1912 are ended and with
the dawn of the day the battle of bal
lots will begin. There seems no doubt
that it will be decided in favor of the
people by the triumph of their peerless
leader, but in order to do so every
Democrat and other patriotic men
must do their full duty.
They must get on the firing line and
show no quarter to camp followers
and stragglers. The bJack flag should
be hoisted against the high protective
tariff, the insolent trusts and other in
terests favored at the expense of the
Let the battle cry today be "Wilson,
Marshall and a Democratic Congress,"
and the God of Battles will smile upon
us with a famous victory.
Democrats of Bourbon county must
rally to the support of the Democratic
party today of all times. Never was
victory more apparent than at present
but there should be no hanging back
when the polls are thrown open this
morning. The stay at home Democrat
is no Democrat at all ; the man who
vote the ticket straight andwho goes
to the polls earlv is the man who the
Democrats must depend upon for vic
tory. That the grand old county of Bour
bon will come forward with a hand
some majority for the Democratic
Presidential candidates is a foregone
conclusion, but even in the face of
these facts there should not be the
slightest di3interestin the election.
Let the Democrats do their duty today
by their party and .themselves.

President Neal will also oppose Pres
ident M. H. Sexton's proposal to tax
the draft moneys passing through the
hands of the association secretary in
order to defray the expenses of main

should be raised, if necessary but tax
ing the draft money would be unfair
to the leaguesSwith desirable players,
who would pay more than their pro

REPLYTQ JUSTUS GOEBEL
Gov. McCreary Writes About
Corporations and Valuation
of State Franchise.
READY TO ASSIST STATE.
Recites Law Requiring Attorney
General to Recommend Be
fore Employing Counsel
uovernor Mcureary nas issued a
statement in response to the letter ad
dressed to him and to others by Mr.
Justus Goebel. Ihe Governor declares
that "all persons who have made prop
er investigation know that the corpo
rations in Kentucky have not been
paying their just proportion of the
taxes," an" says that if the corpora
tions which have instituted suits per
sist in their efforts "the State of Ken
tucky and the cause of the taxpayers
should be defended in the courts by
counsel in every way well equipped,
and by all the attorneys that may be
needed to cone with the many able at
torneys who instituted the suits."
The Governor's statement follows:
"The letter of Mr. Justus Goebel ad
dressed to me and to all administrative
and legislative officers of the State,
and to all citizens of the Common
wealth who are interested in equal and
uniform taxation, has been published
generally in the newspapers and con
tains valuable information and impor
"He was prenet at the meetings of
the Board of Valuation and Assess
ment, which occupied about five
months arid must be well informed on
the subjects to which he refers.
"The Board of Valuation and Assess
ment, consisting of Henry M.Bosworth
State Auditor, Thomas S. Rhea, State
Treasurer, and C. P. Crecelius, Secre
tary of Mate, did then work well and

be paid by the large corporations of
"1 am opposed to discrimination, and
beileve that taxation should be uni-
iorm, and the corporations and the
people assessed and taxed justlv and
"In rny message to the last Lecis
lature I recommended the passage of
eight important bills, and all were en
acted into Jaw except the public utili
ties bill, which gave the Governor au
thority to appoint an assessment and
valuation commission to do what the
existing Board ot Valuation and As
sessment nas done: nut, as the mem
bers ot that board had not under form
er administrations been active, I had
no knowledge that the existing board
would be active until I was assured bv
the members that they would do their
duty and be just and fair, and the pub
lic utilities bill was not passed..
"The existing Board" of Valuation
and Assessment based their 1912 as
sessment on evidence of the values
placed'before them at great length and
I am sure they have presented what
they believe, after careful examina
tion and convincing proof, are just and
fair asspssments; and of about four
hundred corporations assessed, only
eight have protested in the courts.
"The eight suits that have been
brought against the State may be con
tested through tne Federal and State
courts, and are of great imortance to
the people and the State treasury.
They involve for the State aoout four
hundred thousand dollars annually, and
for the county and city taxing dis
tricts about eight hundred thousand
dollars annually, or a total of about
one million two hundred thousand dol
lars. "When the present administration
came into office, less than one year
ago, the State's indebtedness was more
than two million dollars. With just
and fair taxation the debt of the State
would soon be extinguished ; and I re
gret that important and powerful cor
porations are resisting tne action of
the Board of Valuation and Assess
ment and endeavoring to perpetuate
taxation which btheii own admissions
show to beunjust and unequal.
"If the corporations which have in
stituted suits persist in their efforts,
the State of Kentucky and the cause
of the taxpayers should be defended in
the courts by counsel in everv way
well equipped and bv all the attorneys
that may be needed to meet and cope
with the many able attorneys who in
stituted the suits.

ability, and known loyalty to the
State's interests of Attorney General

Statutes provides :

event the Attorney General shall, in

employment, request the Governor to
