W8tiisnixiN, Fob 0 Sonator Deboo
to - day rerouitnended lloprogentative
PiirIi, of tho Ninth diutrict, for the judge
ship of tho Eastern Kentucky judicinl
district. It has boon evident hero for
several days that Senator Deboo was fast
drifting toward tho Thomas-Pugh not,
hence there was no surprise manifested
when tho announcement wan made that
Sonator Doboe, at eoutpanii d by Repre
sentative Smith, of Kentucky, had called
at tho White Mouse in Mr. Piigh's in
terest. Many Kentucky Republicans had
hoped that the Senator would make a
harmony move nnd recommend ex-Gov.
Rrndley for the judgeship, but this proved
too big n political game nnd the Senator
in tact has gone to tho other extreme,
for it is well known that Mr. Bradley
and Messrs. Piigh mid Thomas are not
ou the best ot terms.
The trouble between e-Gov Bradley
and Judge Thomas and Representative
Pugh dates back to tho time when Mr.
Bradley had Presidential aspirations.
Tho story runs that Judge Thomas was
one of the first to discover that Bradley
was Presidential timber, and was put
down as one of his strongest supporters.
After the conventions to select delegates
to the National convention, the future
Piosident, Mr. McKtuley, was informed
that Judge Thomas had carried the State
of Kentucky for the apostol of protec
tion and had routed the forces of the tirst
Republican Governor. McKinley was
elected and Judge Thomas was appointed
Solicitor of Internal Revenue. If the
President approvts .Pugh, it will hardly
be charged to the Bradley quota of State
Senator Deboe says there is no doubt
ot the appointment ot Representa
tive Pugh. It is learned, however, that
the President said nothing which would
iudicate that he has fully made up his
miud on this point. While the indorse
ment of Senator leboe and the Louis
ville custom-house can usually be ac
cepted as tiual. there are instances on
record where the President has listened
to other influences in the State
Jitlicially, Judge A. M. J. Cochran, of
Mavsville possesses indorsements which
would ordinarily count in making an ap
pointment cf this nature. He is also
backed by a class of politicians in Ken
tucky winch should deserve some con
sideration at the hands of the President.
Among others who might be mentioned
i John W. Yerkes. Judge Cochraus
fnends. however, are relying entirely
upon his record as a jurist, and do not
concede that Representative Pugh is as
good as appointed.
Washington, Ftb. 7 Senator Pebce,
of Kentucky, said to-dav that Congress

Neurly every woman is naturally a good judge of table Linens. She knows that
if made of Iohr threads Damask launders better, she knowe weight is not tlio only
thing in Linon. The knowing women are tho ones we particularly invito to i judge
the values wo olfqx. This year we have made n special tllort to introduce higher
grade Linens. Tho adage "it pay? to buy the best" is never more accurate than
when applied to table Damask. You can never regret adding a little to the price
you usually pay-if that price is less than a dollar 'or the extra beauty and wear
will prove a generous recompense. We have by far the bestSl Damask now we
have ever had the good fortune to find. It's a safe, satisfying, economical investment.
