CANTEILL AGAIN DEFEATS E. E.
By a vote of approximately 11 to
1, Congressman James Campbell
Cantrill, Saturday, was renominat
ed by the Seventh district Demo
crats in an apathetic primary elec
tion over R. E. Lee Murphy, young
Lexington attorney. It was Mur
phy's third defeat by Cantrill.
The total vote cast in the 12 coun
ties of the district was slightly
more than 10,000. Cantrill receiv
ed 9,274 and Murphy 838, according
to unofficial returns.
The vote was very light, not more
-than one-fifth that usually cast in a
hotly Contested primary, but it was
heavier by nearly 2,000 than that of
1920, when Cantrill and Murphy
were voted on. The total vote then
was S.988 to 488. It was approxi
mately the same in 1916 when Mur
phy opposed Cantrill for the first
While his vote was more than 11
times that of his opponent, Mr. Can

Last year about 250 business men
of Paris and their wives and friends,
participated in the trip, which was
pronounced a great success. It is
hoped that twice that number will
make the trip this year. The itiner
ary has not yet been fully worked
out, but will take up but one day.
The plan of organization is about
the same as that used last year.
Members of the finance committee
will call on the merchants and bus
iness interests and a fee of $3.00 will
be collected from those merchants
desiring to take part in the tript

The Finance Committee of the
Booster Trip, Charles Greene, chair
man, announces that each firm which
contributes $3.00, will be given one
ticket to the Booster dinner to be
served at noon, August 30, in Mil
lersburg. Secretary Harris is in
communication with several promi
nent speakers, and at least one will
be secured to deliver the noon ad
dress at Millersburg.
This Booster trip is for the pur
pose of getting out into the county
and meeting the people who make
Paris possible. It is essential rhat
friendly relations be renewed, and
new acquaintances be established.
Let's lay aside all worries for one
day, put on a broad smile and ride
out and say "howdy" to every man,
woman and child in Bourbon county.
As a rule, people trade with their
friends, and perhaps you will be the
very man who will be benefitted by
this trip. The Commercial Club
would appreciate any suggestions in
regard to the Booster Trip. Officials
of the Club are using every effort to
assure the success of this trip.
THE STRIKE SITUATION
The beginning of the sixth week
of the shopmen's strike on the L. &i
N. found little change in the situa-j
tion as far as Paris is concerned.
The good order to which the striking
workmen pledged themselves in the
beginning has continued to prevail
here. Train service seems no worse
than it was this time last week, and
it has probably improved in some re
spects. The local strikers are optimistic
concerning the outcome, and are
still awaiting hopeful news from
thier leaders. Locally the situation
is very quiet, the men being deter
mined that no untoward incident
will be allowed to interfere with
their preconceived plan of peaceful
and watchful waiting.
Authorities at Washington were
blamed for the continuance of the
rail strike in a statement made by
Wible L. Mapother, president of the
Louisville and Nashville Railroad
Company, who accused the authori
ties of persistently spreading broad
cast reports of problematic settle
ment thereby encouraging rail work
ers and preventing them from going
back to work.
"Many of the union men realizing
that the strike is lost, would be
more than glad to return to work,
but are held out by false hopes rais
ed by their leaders who seize every
opportunity to spread broadcast re
ports of problematical settlements,"
said Mr. Mapother.
"The strike is already won," he
continued, adding that with the re
moval of intimidation, which he
claims has been practiced by local
strikers, there would be a general
movement back to work.
No immediate change in the pro
gram of the maintenance of way un
ion is contemplated at present, E. F.
Grable, president of the organiza
tion, said at Chicago. He added,
however, that if present practices on
some railroads continue "it is hard
telling where the matter may lead."
LOUISVILLE & NASHVILLE
.JECTS FORD'S OFFER
The Louisville & Nashville Rail
road Company rejected Henry Ford's
offer to aid in Operating its coal
carrying lines in Eastern Kentucky.
This' announcement was made fol
lowing a conference between repre
sentatives of the Detroit. Toledo &
Ironton railroad, which is owned by
Mr. Ford, and representatives of the
Louisville & Nashville.
The Louisville & Nashville was
represented by President Wible L.
Mapother, Vice President Geo. H.
Evans and General Counsel Edward
L. Jouett. The Ford road was rep
resented by E. C. Leibold, secretary
to Mr. Ford; Chas. E. Sorenson, F.
L. Bockelman and C. B. Longley, all
The Detroit men in a prepared
statement regrading the meeting
said that Mr. Mapother took the
stand that "all we want is to be left
alone." They also said that he said
that the Louisville & Nashville did
not care for the assistance of any
one; that all propositions submitted
by Ford would result in demands for
continuance of the high wage paid
by Ford when the joint operation
was withdrawn and that operation
of the Corbin-Banner junction
branch, which served Mr. Ford's
Banner Fork mines, would not set
tle the strike the country over.
The directors said, following the
conference, that President Mapother
has rejected every' offer made by Mr.

leased by Famous Players-Lasky
