The State political (races for both
parties are now made up and with
the primary four weeks off added In

test In the Republican ranks 1b that

eral. George W. Jolly, a leader of
long standing In the G. O. IP., refus

Hert-Searcy machine and will buck

against Charles I. Dawson, who was
the choice of the hand-pickers at the
Lexington convention. But putting
gloom into Jolly on primary day
isn't worrying the Republican ma
chine leaders half as much as the
sagging boom of Morrow, the candi
date for Governor, and Bosses Hert
and Searcy are at their wits end
trying to devise some remedy to
save the fast slipping oratorical star,
line Republican machine leaders
opened their campaign with the piti
ful plea of "right the wrongs of
1915," and Bat back to see how In
dignant the voters of Kentucky
would become when they thought of
the wrongs of "Howdy Ed, the rat
Uln' good speaker." But to their
surprise not the slightest attention
, has been paid to his woes by the
voters, and the smart Republicans
now agree that a serious mistake
was made in selecting Morrow to
iead the ticket. The favorite ditty
of Hert and Searcy now is "Why we
picked a lemon in the garden of pol
itics where so many peaches grow.
It didn't take the Democratic press
and voters throughout the State very
long to get the number of the Courier-Journal
and Times as to the ef
forts of these papers to knife the
Democratic ticket in, the Interest of
Morrow. The toadying to wepu oil
can Boss Hert In the Bingham press
was first tipped off In the columns
of the Kentucky Irish American, and
as proof conclusive that the tip cir

Kentucky Educators' Association Is
sufficient. The Bingham press tried

Ludicrous to Intimate That Popo

We should have been happy to be
able to take it for granted that the
League of Nations, iboth In itself
and In the arguments advanced for
or against it, was a non-partisan Is

has shattered this dream, He knew,
of course, that the league Is 'Presi

worst possible blow both to the
league and to tho President.
This is what Senator Sherman did
by his speech in the Senate. Maybe,
however, that the solid South is so
firmly grounded In Its faith In Wil
son, and the Senator's political trick
so transparent, that his insinuation
which involves both "the Pope and
the President will be treated with
deserved indignation and damage the
cause which It wag intended to ben

discard Sir Edward; indeed he and
his friends submitted their views to
that gentleman in London, as "ar
bitrator" between the parties, gave
tho advice. "Secure the return of
Major Moore," and subsequently al
lowed members of his party to an
nounce in tho constituency that It
Hanna wore returned he might havo
to Teconsider his position. More
over, they insinuated that in such!
event me would retire icroin tho
- .Ulster leadership, and. In any jcaso -rrthey
ognlzed by. the Ulster party.
Personalities were freely In
dulged in at the meetings of the re
spective parties, and at some there
were exciting scenes, with heckling,
while stones and rotten eggs wera
features at gatherings addressed by
Major Moore. Many Orange lodges
and sections of the Unionist labor
organization supported Hanna, who
was accused of being a Sinn Felner
and of wishing to destroy the Car
son party. On ithe other hand, he
roundly asserted that efforts had
been made to Induce him to stand
down by offers of a money sum and
appointment as an R. M., and on
one occasion he admitted that there
was a prospect, if he were returned,
of his surrendering his practice as
a Ballymena solicitor and entering
a business career in London, where
constant residence would enablo
him tho better to serve the constit
uents. Major Moore was largely com
mended 'for his service in the war
with the Canadians and as a -winner
of the D. S. O., and a resolution
In his favor was passed by the
County Antrim Grand Orange
Lodge of whlcH, by the way, Han
na Is a member. One oV "Hanna's
platform statements was that Sir
Edward Carson told him he knew
nothing of Major Moore, but that a
friend in Donegal had asked him to
get "our Willie" a seat. Mr. Leggs
campaign was conducted without
chairmen or organization in the
regular sense of tho word, but his
progressive views on Irish govern
ment, as the figures indicate,
with considerable acceptance for an
area Hko East Antrim, which
touches on the Unionist suburbs of
Belfast and embraces several of tho
seaside resorts on the coast from
the city round to Lame.
On the polling day posters were
displayed with the words: "Mooro
and the Union. Hanna and Dis
union. Which?" The poll was
very xhaustlve. It may be re
called that Lieut. Col. McCalmont
at the general election defeated a
Sinn Fein candidate toy over 14,000
votes. '
After the declaration, which took
place at the County Court House,
Belfast, Hanna, who was "chaired"
from the steps of the building by
an enthusiastic crowd', said toe
hoped that when he went to West
minster he would so conduct him
self that the people of East Antrim
would have the same pride In him
as he would have In representing
them. Addressing a meeting of his
friends, Major Moore said that, al
though beaten, he was npt dis
graced. They all knew the prin
ciples he had fought for, and he
was sure they would not be mis
understood, Mr. Legg not having obtained an
eighth ot the total poll, forfeits
his deposit.
