Wo have not discussed tho prob
lem Involved in redistricting sena
torial districts Under existing laws J
the inequalities arc not so great As
senators are elected for four roan
the terms of onehalf expiring at one
time and the remaining half two
years later the problem is more com
plex
By reason of constitutional re
quirement It will Inevitably too found
that owing to location of a particular
county having less than Its ratio of
population I but which cannot be In
eluded with a contiguous county hav
ing Its duo or exeee ratio of popula
tion any plan will result In making
two or moro legislative districts in
tho state of lens population than
other districts Both Meade and
Hancock counties have enjoyed un
merited representation by roasom of
proximity to neighboring counties to
whkh they could not be attached
without undue increase of population
in tho combined district Without
going Into tho question of Senatorial
districts In detail wo select two OK
typifying I the gross inequalities of
existing districts emphasized crcly

by tho figures of tho present census
The hard district Is composed of
tho counties of Clay Floyd Harian

the fact that it was n holiday for
met Senator McCrcnry and Congress
man Ben Johnson did tot take a day
for rest In their campaign for the
Democratic nomination for governor
and the campaign between tho two
ending candidates was opened in
earneSt before a largo crowd
Senator McCrearyo declaration
that n primary fatty and nobly con
ducted was tho best method of at
Ivlng at tho truo wishes of tho pea
pic was warmly ctoceied Ho de
clared that ho entertained tho high
est respect for his opponents in tho
race but Intimated that Congress
man Bon Johnson and Mayor W O
Head should bo satisfied at least un
til the end of their present terms
with tho respective honors conferred
upon them by the people of tho
Fourth congressional district and I
the city of Louisville
The senator revlew1 his public
service and declared too stood upon
his record as governor and congress
man and senator in tho present
contest
Attack l on McCifary
Congressman Johnson with whom
Senator McCreary divided time
made a vigorous attack on Me
Crcarys record as a Democrat
blaming him for refusing to assist
In the election of Beckham to tho
United States Donate and reiterated
his charges that the McCreary men
In the Fourth district tad organized
Caddie clubs during tho congress
mans recent fight for reelection
Judge W D Yancey presided and
the speakers were Introduced 16 the
crowd by H W Alexander a young
attorney Congressman Johnson was
generously applauded as ho made his
vigorous and pointed criticisms of
tho former senator
Senator McCreary said In part
The Democratic majority In Ken
tucky Is not large when bqjtjy poliO
cal parties voto their full strength
and every Democrat should bo Im
pressed with the necessity for earn
est harmonious united action
I believe we can by harmony and
Jurtlco elect our state Democratic
ticket In 1911 by 15 000 or 20000
majority
Xo Ulnjr Ho Says
Im this connection I wish to cay
I desire tho support of all Demo
crats No candidate for a state of
Ace can be elected unless he has the
cordial support of practically all the
Democrats in Kentucky I wish to
say alo with empUseia that I
havb made no combination or alli
ance with any candidate or with any
Individuals In connection with my
raco for governor 1 shall in tho fu
ture as in the past belong to no
ring combination and shall always
strive to discharge every duty re
quired of mo promptly nnd efficiently
I For all my opponenta who arc
candidates for the Democratic noml
nation for governor I entertain the
I highest respect I do not desire to
criticise any of them and I do not
wish to bo elected on their demerits
If they have any
Congressman Johnson has two
I months of his propcnt term to servo
i in congress and he has just been
elected for a third term for two
years at a salary of J 7500 per an
num It seems to me It would have
been both democratic and just for
him to have been satisfied with one
of these great offices
Hits at Mayor Head
Mayor William O Head of Lous
vllle was Inaugurated about ont
year ago and baa about three years
to serve at a salary amounting to
5000 a year and it would seem
democratic and just for him to post
pone his desire for the office of
governor until the expiration of his
term ne > mayor I wltm to say how
ever that If any of my opponents
are nominated for governor I wilt
support yie t nominee faithfully and
actively
No person has criticised my offi
clal nets or public service and no
person had pointed out a single In
stance in whlci the peoples rights
