"XOJfPAKTISAjr CHAFF The full Republican ticket, un der Its party emblem, Is printed this that a candidate for circuit Judge may submit his claims tor nomina tion in the primary to both parties or' all parties and his name upon proper petition shall be so placed upon the primary ballot. In several districts of Kentucky last August this was done. Some such candi dates were nominated by both the Democratic and the Republican par ties. Some won the nomination of one party and lost with the other. They could, therefore, go on in their candidacy on the ticket with which they succeeded. But In our own district no candi date for circuit Judge asked the nomination of both parties. Judge Slack, being for many years an ar dent and aggressive Republican, asked only the Republican nomina tion. He chose to cast his lot sole ly with the "Log Cabin" party. He is said to have been active also in framing up the Republican county tlqkAt. It was to his interest to do this. He needed all the help he could get from his fellow Republicans in getting out the full Republican vote. Nobody could blame him for that But Judge Slack and others on the -"Log- Cabin" ticket know they cannot be elected by Republican votea only. They are appealing or non-partiBan votes. They are pray lng for the votes of disgruntled Democrats, men who were disap pointed In the Democratic primary, There are fewer and fewer of these, however, every day. Democrats who have good mem ories can hardly vote for Slack though he Is a popular and genial man who has many personal friends. Until he was middle-aged he was a Democrat. For reasons best known to himself, some years ago he left the Democratic' party and became a zealous Republican. Like the man who changes from dne church to another he became an Intense, parti san Republican. He has never been able to see anything good In the Democratic party since. He has done everything In his power to break up the Democratic party. He was elected circuit Judge six years ago In this Democratlo district be cause of an unfortunate breach at that time in the Democratic party. But that breach has long ago been healed and no considerable number of Democrats can ever' be persuaded to vote to re-elect Slack because be as a Republican partisan does not deserve Democratic votes.

Cary completed the first tup of their speaking campaign In Ohio County last Saturday night when they addressed a large and enthusiastic audience at Cromwell Beginning Wednesday, they spoke at Matanzas. Centertown, Equality, CeralvO, Rockport, Wysox, McHenry Baizetown and Cromwell, being greeted by good-sise.l audiences at all points. They were accompanied by the Democratic candidates for county offices.

A feature of the meet ings wa3 tlw presence and iniorest of the ladies. Wilson At M.H.nry In his speech at McHenry Mr. Wilson said: "It is probably true, a Judge Slack says, that there were more Democrats than Republicans select ed as jury commissioners by Judge Birkhead and by bis other predeces sors. A Jury commissioner serves about three days a year and gets two dollars a day I believe,' for his iervtce. But 1 would like to ask Judge Slack if he means to chargo iluft the Juries selected hi Judge Ui.k'.iead's courts, or In Judge Owen's courts or in Judge LitMe's courts were partisan qr that either of thene Judges were partisan in their rulings. What ease did i-ither of them or any Jury .hi their courts ever decide on partisan grounds? "I resent the chnrei's or Insinu ations that the business in tho courts of either Judge Birkhead, Judge Owen or Judge Little wan conducted or decided at any time -on partisan grounds or for any psrty reasons. It so, I call upon my op ponent to name the case or ruling ot the court that was so decided or made. I am surprised that Judgo Slack Is undertaking to make the voters believe that politics has beeu played In the courts of any of tho judges who preceded him on the bench. Woiiuin Worrii-H Judge "The Judge u!.so bitterly com plains because the Democrats gave to the women the honor of opening the campaign.' Does he imm to de ny the women a voice in public af fairs. Does he mean to say they can vote, but must not speak. Ho la very much perturbed over Mrs. Fulton's speech at Owensboro and refers to It in all of his speeches and even when he prints and reprints a complimentary editorial printed about him at the beginning of his term, he takes occasion to pr- his respects to this splendid lajy who honored us with a speoch at t'vs be ginning of the campaign." At Rockport a large percentago of the audience wss composed of miners and Mr. Wilson, who was born and reared in a mlniii:? sec tion, had a heart-to-he.irt talk with them In regard to emtnn Inter ests and purposes.
