Judge il. L. Sharpe. One Of the
few democratic county judges Casey

both speakers. Mr. Helm spoke
first. He made a hit nght at the
start by recalling the close pe.rsonal
relations he has had with the dem
ocrats and the people of Casey, tha
rood neighbor of Lincoln, nnd de
clined that he felt almost ns much
nt home there ns he did in his own

the high cost of living nnd through
out it nil hnd stuck faithfully to his
post of duty, working honestly and

been selected by n coterie of poli
ticians at a dark lantern meeting
in n Louisville Hotel. And then ho
described the celebrated Victoria
Hotel meeting when Judge Sullivan
was picked bv a number of men
over the district to make the race
ngainst Helm. The speaker pointed
out very significantly thnt although
Chey eeountv at that time was n
part of the Eigatli district, not one
of her leading democrats hod been
asked to participate in that meet
ing, and sav who tva a good man to
repicsent the district. His oppon
ent, it would seem, was claiming
ereat credit for helping to brirv
Caey into tho district, yet ho hnd
not sought 'to havo Casey repre
sented nt this select meeting. On tho
other hnnd. Congressman Helm
came beforo tho good democrnts of
i iiey nnd sought his nomination by
their help in the open democratic
primary, and not ns tho choice of
any clique of nohticinns. He told
how even Col. Jnck Cliinn had seen
th "snake tracks" at that Louis
villa meeting, nnd hnd declared that
it was 0 'frame-up" pure nnd sim
ple. Congressman Helm laid partic
ular stress upon denials of tho
reckless statements which have been
printed in pnier over tho district
nnd nnid for bv .Tudeo Sullivan, the
grenter pint of which, the speaker
declared, nro absolutely without n
scintilla of truth ns foundation. IIo
deprecated that n man of Judire
Sullivan's standing would stoop to
tho publication of statements which
hnve been proven absolutely untrue
He flatly denied thnt he had ever
made nnv nttnek upon the demo
cratic state administration ns Sul
livan nnd his pnid-for statements
had charged. He rend an extinct
from the Interior Journal, published
immediately nfter the democratic
state convention, in which it was
shown conclusively that lit hnd

friends of flov. McCreurv. lie did

tempt the good democrats to sunnort
him by the dangling of peiiitentiurv

tho speaker said. Judgo Sullivan

written the democratic platform,
which specifically declared for tho
removal of the slate cliaiitnblo and

"dnngle tho jobs", for ho declared
that he believed the good democrats'
of Cascy deserved some recognition

CMmty 0f,cer3 woro republicans.
Congressman Helm told tho dem
ocrats of Cascy that he has wo
comed them into tho eighth district
ns gladly as anvone. Ho read a
statement he hnd mnde at tho time,
in which he hnd said that his only
rsgret was that the good democrats
of Jicekcastle had not also been
kppt in the district. He said that
the democrats of Casey and Adair
were hi!) kind of pwp!e( and he felt

that although he bad been working
and voting to cut down the taxes ou
the people at Washington, there was
not n property owner in tho state
w ho hnd not had to pay higher taxes
since Judge Sullivan had served a
term 111 the legislature four years
ngo. Congressman Helm declared
thnt lie was a strong champion of
educational work alone every line,
but that he did not believe in voting
still higher taxes upon the people
with the stnte nlready heavily in
debt. He leferred to his work fdr
the fnrmers' free list bill, the tobac
co census bill and other progressive
democratic measures for which he
bad lnborcd faithfully iu the inter
est of the people.
Comrressman Helm denied em
phatically the charge made by Col.
Chinn that the whisky interests are
behind him, and read a letter he had
written to a prominent temperance
man, long before this issuo was
inisod, in which ho hnd pledged him
self to the Shepard-Kenyon bill, the
irensuro which the temperance
forces are seeking to have passed
through the national congress. He
pointed out thnt Col. Chinn's state
ment and charge was being printed
in the papers of the district nt Sul
livnn's evpense, although it was pal
pably untrue and a complete misre
presentation. Congressman Helm's
explanation nlong this line was com
pletely satisfactory to his tenier
ance frionds in Casey county und
n great many declared afterward,
that the Chinn charge is already
providing a severo boomerang to
Judge Sullivan, since its deceptive
character has become known.
Congressman Helm held the close
and undivided attention f the big
crowd to the end. The largest por
tion remained to hear Judge Sulli
van's reply, although many left
when Helm hnd concluded.
Judge Sullivnn dwelt at consider
able length upon his own enreer
from ho, hood up, nnd told of the
success ho has made in life, how he
has succeeded every thing he has at
tempted, nud finally ho has become
president of the bi"get nnd the

told of his service 111 democratic
