No one man or woman will be excepted from this tule. The days of registration are July 10th. and 11th. next. KKMKMREK THE DATES' Several weeks ago tii Democratic State Committee met at Louisville for the purpose of considering ways and means of mak " ing sure that the Democrats would come out at the proper time and register. In order that they might thereafter have the right to vote. At that meeting, which I was unable to attend each of the Democratic members of Congress was made chairman of the committee for the district' represented by him. In that way I Save b?en made chairman of the committee for the Fourth Con gressional District. In my humble opinion uothinp could have been more unwise. Here I em, by the trace f the people of our district, 700 or 800 miles from the scene w!6 the work is to be done. How can I execute the commission with which the people sent me to Wash ington, and at the same time be in Kentucky endeavoring to per suade the people to register although it be something thut every liberty-loving mau aud woman should do without persua sion? . Under ordinary circumstances I nlight very properly. have gone to Kentucky at short intervals and still kept ln touch with my work here. While I write this and at all times during the last few months I have been peculiarly sltaateO here. An appropriation bill car rying nearly twenty-four million dollars is now, and during the months Just mentioned, has been In dispute and controversy be tween the United States . Se::ute and the House of Repre sentatives. This dispute between the two Houses has been sub mitted to three conferees from the Senate and three from the House. I am the ouly Democratic conferee on the part of the House. - y Millions of dollars of the peop'es' money depend upon the re sult of this conference. For months, I say, this conference has been pending, each conferee contending for the adoption of his Jwn views. , Without breach of modesty i can say, and no one here will dispute it, that my views relative to the most Important features of the bill have been acte;tef by the conferees and adopted by I he House. ' That conference report is now before the Senate for its adoption,- rejection or ameudmeut. If it should be adopted by the Senate just an It is, then the work is over. But it it should Le rejected, then all would have to be gone ver again. How over, It Is reasonably certain that It will y . be either rejected or accepted as a whole. Im teui. it is virtually certain that it will be adopted by the Senate with two or. three amendments. It is Impossible for me to know ln advance wheu the Senate will take up the matter for a vote. ; ' ' ' But, immediately the Senate acts. I must just simple must be here to help defeat or pas? the Senate amendments ln the i . House. As I am the only House Democrat on the conference committee, I am, in consequence, the only Democrat in the House who is familiar with all the minor details ot the bill. Because ot this fact, the Democratic organization In the House demands that I remain here until the bill is finally disposed ot. I shall remain here rec-rdles of personal political results at Boot, not merely because my colleagues in Congress demand It, but because I must do my duty by those who sent me here, let to me' happen what will. , Since I am thus situated, 'I take this means of imploring the , Democrats to permit nothing whatever to deter them from reg ' littering, and thereby preserve the right to vote In the future, ' I appeal to all Democrats In every p'recinct, not only not to me in this respect, but not to fail themselves by preserving their future rig 'at of suffrage. May I not only trust that every Democrat will go to the proper voting precinct to register, but that each one will see that all the neighbors go. Just as soon as Imperative tfutles here at Washington release me I shall leave tor Kentucky to co-operate with my party lo looking to Its future success. ' ' In the meantime, I feel sure that the Democrats,, particularly . those of the county and precinct committees men and women Lllke will take care ot the situation, .

S:out of the Franklin Cir cuit Court tonight overruled a mo tion for an Injunction, iu.ide by Re publican attorneys, for an injunction The case will at once Le taken' to the Court of Apieal. Frankfort, Ky., June 17. The general registration act was attack ed by suit In the Franklin Circuit Court today on the grounds that it is uncorutimh'on-il by its teriuu and Invalidated by the conditions of its passage. The suit to enjoin Sheriff John M. Lueaa, Eleotion Commissioners V7. C. Rry.uu and L. F. Fnellon and County Clerk J. B. Kuh from holding the registration, is brought in the name of John M. Perkins, a prominent Repyb'ic-in of Frankfort and is the product of the Republi can conference in Louisville this we?k. W. A. Fowler, of the law firm of O'Rear & Fo'.vler and former as sistant ottorney general, filed the petition. The act, known as the Smith Minor bill, wis introduced ln the House, Passed and was enrolled and signed by the Speaker and Lieutenant Governor and sent to Governor Morrow, who vetoed It. The bill was then passed over hi:i y.eto,hut the Speaker and Lieuten ant Governor did not sign It ajain, the clerks attestation on an att iolie.1 slip of paper only showing that it was passed over the veto in both Houses. Certillcjition is Attache! This form of certification is at acked ln the petition on the ground j that the Constitution requires the j same formality the second time it passed as on the Brut. The consti- tutionality of the act Is attached be cause It registers voters on'-y for the election of elective officers not for bond and other kind-j of elec tions, that it creates a court In tho board of purgation and discrim inates agalint voters, who cannot register.
