While I had a, great desire to meet him I felt It would Jeopardize the success of our ticket In Novemfier-and I waived aside my de-' sires In the Interest of my party. I am able to say to my friends In Ohio County that the reports received from up-standing men in the other counties indicate strongly that I will carry every county' . in the District. Good news comes to me from every section of Ohio County, and it looks as If the good county of Ohio will give me a majority of at least four to one, but-1 earnestly request my friends to be alert for the few remaining hours of the campaign and to. make the majority as large as possible, which will help us win in November.

To the Democratic Voters of the Sixth Judicial Dis trict : As a candidate for the Democratic nomination for the important office of Circuit Judge, I am asking for your support and influence. I realize that, owing to the great number of Democratic voters in the four counties of the district, it will be impossible for me to see many of them and that my friends can render me a very great serviec by speaking to their friends in my behalf. I have always endeavored to -stand for that which was for the interest of the people, and, if elected, it shall be my constant aim and purpose to see that every person who has business in the Circuit Courts of this district gets fair treatment and a square deal in accordance with the laws of our I am not the candidate of any little coterie of de signing lawyer, who hope to control the high office cf Circuit Judge to promote' their own selfish ends, and, if elected, no lawyer or set of lawyers will be judge by proxy during my term of ofrice. I was born and reared in this district and for tunately am known to mosc of you, and I do not have to give you any refererc:: to my standing as a citi zen or as to my qualifications for the ofrice to which I aspire. You also know of my services to our party. Its success now is important," and in my opinion it would be unwise for the Democrats of this district to nominate a candidate for Circuit Judge to head our ticket this year, who is the operator or manager of a non-union coal mine. The reports from every section of the district in dicate that the sentiment of the people "over whelmingly for me, but I realize that the mails are being flooded by the opposition and that monsy is being freely used against me,' and that false and ex travagant claims of strength are being made to hood wink and deceive the people, and I earnestly ask cy friends to be diligent to offset these efforts. Thanking you for the interest which vou have shown in my candidacy, I remain, Yours very truly, L. P. TANNER.
