Democrat pays the following com
pliment to Mr. Thompson, and to
Mr. Will E. Simms, of Woodford
county, a former resident of Paris:
"Much has been said in the pa
pers of the State regarding the next
Democratic nominee for Governor
and many splendid men suggested
for this important place. The Sentinel-Democrat
is not pledged or ob
ligated to any man and it shall be
our endeavor to present to our read
ers from time to time what informa
tion we can glean regarding those
who aspire to this high office or who
have been suggested as candidates.
We want to see in the Governor's
chair, a business man of education,
a man interested in good roads and
good schools and lastly a man who
has no further political aspriations,
but who will be satisfied to retire
after his term as Governor has ex
pired. "Among those suggested have
been Congressman A. W. Barkley,
Congressman W. J. Fields, Congress
man J. Campbell Cantrill, Hon.
Charles Marvin, Hon. William E.
Simms. Hon. James H. Thompson,
Hon. J. N. Camden, Editor Desha
j Breckinridge, Editor Harry A. Som-
mers, Judge Charles N. Harding,
I Hon. Thomas A. Combs, Judge W.
R. Shackleford and Judge Charles

State press as probable starters for
'the Democratic nomination for Gov

name of Hon. Will E. Simms, of

:man of means, a successful farmer
and a gentleman of most ,pleasing
'personality, would no doubt make
'a splendid race. For many months
;he has been giving his time toward
perfecting the Tobacco Growers' Co-
operative Association and has made
numerous speeches throughout the
State and it is from the people and
inot the politicians that men such as
Will Simms will receive support.
"One of the outstanding figures of
the last session of the General As
sembly was Hon James H. Thomp-
json, of Bourbon county, Speaker of
'the House of Representatives. As
.Speaker his rulings were always fair
and clean, his conduct above- re
proach, his courtesy unfailing and
one would often hear the expression
,'we need a man like Jim Thompson
'in the Governor's chair.'
"We have heard a number of men
mentioned for the Democratic nom-
ination for Governor and knov of no
one that would fill the office more
acceptably than he. Born on a farm
in Montgomery county, he moved to
Bourbon county when quite a young
man, where he has since resided.
While he has represented his county
twice as a member of the Legisla
ture, he could in no sense be termed
a -politican because on both occa
sions he has been practically drafted
'for service by his party and was
nominated and elected without oppo
sition. "As a business man and farmer he
has been a success and his interest
in the welfare of the farmer was
proven by his labors in behalf of a
fair and just tax law for the own
'ers of real property and we doubt
if there is a better posted man in the
State on matters of taxation than

rendering some real service to the

bitions to gratify he would make a

citizen could fearlessly

In her latest Goldwin release,

THE STRTKF, SITUATION
Attempts to end the rail shopmen's
strike by separate settlements with
individual roads failed and confer
ences were broken off in New York.
In announcing the breaking off of
negotiations, David Williams, head
of the Eastern strike committee,
"Nothing else could have happen
ed. If they'll quit fussing around
we'll beat these fellows."
A statement by the executives rep
resenting fifty-two main and subsid
iary lines with 85,000 miles of
trackage, who had attended the lat
est conferences, disclaimed any de
sire to take advantage of the strike
situation to curtail the "pension or
privileges" which had been earned
by the strikers before quitting and
expressed a willingness to restore all
strikers with pension privileges un
From unofficial sources it was
learned that the breakup came when
labor men rejected a proposal ad
vanced by the roads which was re
garded by executives as representing
a big concession.
At labor headquarters, . where it
was said the unions were prepared
for a fight-to-the-finish, telegrams
were being dispatched all over the
country, .calling upon strikers to re
new the struggle with redoubled

never been there it will be a revela
tion of beauty. The journey to
Frankfort may be made by the L. &
