DEMOCRACY'S BANNER DAY Campaign Opening at Winches ter Most Auspicious Event Many Thousand People Listen To Oratory And Enjoy Burgoo And Barbecued Meals The formal opening of ttio Demo cr.itlc campalRn nt Winchester. Put mnlay, was ns delightful b.i ho occa tslon was auspicious, Tho sun noei ulionc more brightly on the "OH Ken tucky Home," tho atmojphcre ai never more delicious and InvlRoratlns a warmer welcome was never ex tended than by the Democracy of th( aplendld county of Clark and every thing seemed to work together tc make the event one of the never to 1 forgotten by the many thousands ot enthusiastic men and women who at tended. Every detail for the comfort and enjoyment of their guests ha I been carefully arranged and nothing left undone by the general chairman Judge John K. Garner, Judge John M Stevenson, Senator Abe Itennlck, Steve Vaught, and the able and will ing corps of assistants, while the peo ple of town and county vied with ei'h other In doing everything In the'r power to add to the delights ot the day. The city had been decorated In gala nttlre and flzgs and bunting floated everywhere. The fair grounds were selected for the place of speaking, and a shej erected In front of the mammoth am phitheater for the speakers and hun dreds of men of prominence. At 10:30 Judge Garner made a stirring and witty address of welcome, follow ed by Chairman J. Campbell, Cantrlll, ot tie State campaign committee, who thanked In warmest terms the gool people for their splendid efforts to ?nake the opening memorable, said a ' .few words of cheer to the people whoj -crowded the amphitheater and filled -every conceivable space In all the region aroundabout and Introduce! Congressman Hardy, of Texas, aj the first speaker, who eloquently told ol the accomplishments of the admlnls , t rat Ion and urged the retention in office of the man who made them pos sible and fulfilled every promise ol the convention that nominated him ails speech was logical, forceful and vote winning. ' Following his address, which was 'listened to with rapt attention, the on-. laught on the feast ot burgoo, fried -chicken, barbecued beef and lamb, ' with many other good things, began, and though the charge was heavy and vuiiiii.uo ua tun iiuicodiuu naa uarui noticeable and the heavy laden tables would have withstood the charge of several thousands more and still croaned with their weight of well pre pared edibles. It was a real feast, from which no one went awav emDtv. On their own Initiative and at their J own exriense. the ladies had nrenareil I another feast In a large tent In honor ot the vice president's charming wife, where the speakers and others enjoyed a real banquet, served by beautiful girls and comely matrons and every body made to feel that It was good to be there. The tent was gaily dec orated and the ensemble was beau tlful. C The Inner man having been satis fied. Gov. Stanley introduced the lead lng speaker of the day. Vice President 'Thomas It. Marshal, of Indiana, who was received with tumultuous ap plause, and his was a most captivating mddress, full of hope and confidence. Mr. Marshall Is a born orator and possessing the ability to tell an anec dote well, he soon caught his audience which listened to his effort with wild cheers and applause. There are few more popular speakers than Woodrow Wilson's running mate, "the tall to Ills kite," as he called himself, and lis eloquent recital ot constructive work accomplished during the three nd a half years that the Democrat had been In power, made a lasting Impression on the multitude, which drunk In every word with avidity, and eemcd fully to agree with him that Cod had raised up Woodrow Wilton for his great work. Congressman W. J. Fields then In troduced the lion. Thomas J. Ileflln, ot Alabama, whose fame as an orator 1h nation-wide, and for an hour he kept the vast throng applauding or con- vulkod with laughter at the stories he told so Inlmlcally. It was a great speech and kept the crowd to Its end though more than halt ot It had to stand to hear It. Chairman A. D. House, of the speak ers' bureau, could hardly have made better selection for the occasion as very man of them Is matter In his line of speech. Tho great crowds which came from many parts of the state and was vari ously estimated at from 10,000 to 20,000, reluctantly took iti leave, filled -with enthusiasm and Intent on doing II In Its power to re-elect Wilson and Marshall for hur more years ot patri otic service. There hart beau many (rand open- The Central Record $1.00 Per Year ia Advance.

Everybody at all Acquainted with the puMIc splrltednes of tlioe wide awake citizens, knew that they would strive to outdo nil other occasions, and gIorlouly did they fulfill the con fidence, And to them bo honor nnd glory now and always. They certainly emphasized the ambitious little city's place on tho map nnd wrote her name high on the scroll of fame, Chairman Cantrlll expressed his real delight oior the auspicious opening ot the campaign, that must result In1 a famous victory for Democracy and( Is prouder of the county of his con-i gresslonal district than ever. It was' Indeed a glorious day for the cause ( of the poonle nnd a forerunner of a victory that will surprise the nation,' hlch has been led to think that Ken tucky Is a doubtful state. " The enthusiasm engendered by the glorious meeting nt Winchester will spread all over Kentucky and with such candidates as Wilson nnd Mar shall nnd such achievements as the Democratic party has to Its credit the old commonwealth ought to be good for the Tllden majority, which was 60,000. Kentucklans recognize true worth and faithful service and all who love these qualities will vote to re tain the man In office who has done so much for the cause of humanity. Up men, and at 'cm. The President Turned the Trick Candidate Hughes Is greatly wor ried over the way the president suc ceeded in averting the railroad strike and deplores the passage of laws In advance of Investigation. He Is, there fore, attempting to belittle the whole business, but he will have his labor for his ptlns. As Grovcr Cleveland tald on one occasion, "A condition and not a theory," confronted Mr. Wilson, and ho did what the whole country ap plauded him for d'blng. The Republi cans tried to embarrass the President In the matter, but he turned the trick and came out more than a victor and made himself more solid with the people. The laboring people especially are singing the praises of the man who meets every emergency manfully and successfully. Easy to Satisfy. The Republican State Campaign Committee professes to be satisfied with the result of the cost of the per formance In trying to make a showing for Hughes In this state, another In stance of being thankful for small favors, it Is doubtful If Hughes made a vote by his speech In Lexington, while it does not admit of a doubt that he lost very many. Neither his speech nor his presence was Inspir ing and the crowd, motley as It was. evidently expected better things from the candidate ot a once great party. Mr. Hughes' visit demonstrated anew and more fully that the Wilson spirit prevails In this state and that It will be given full force and efTect on the Tth of Nc-ve-nber. Hat Another Think Coming. t rannnt hclieve that the SDlendld spirit which has been shown here to day Is a mere passing enthusiasm, I hope It means that the people of your State realize that the success ot the Republican party In national affairs will advance the welfare of the nation, their own state, and their own homes." Thus spoke Mr. Hughes at Lexington. If the one hundred per cent, canaioate really believes his own words he has another think coming. Kentucklans are usually polite to visitors and show them courtesy, but they do not accept as truth everything that Is told them. Mr. Hughes Is likewise mistaken about enthusiasm. It was not great to begin with and was entirely manufactured by the campaign committee and Iti hirelings. There Is nothing about Mr. Hughes or his speeches to enthuse over, and he who seems to slop over on thorn does so either for pay or for pretense. Kentucky generally is pretty well satisfied with conditions i,n,i.r Wllunn and cannot be made to realize. If such a realization were pos sible, that return of tne uepumicau party to power would advance their welfare. Thev believe that return of that party to the control of the gov ernment meant a return to special privilege! by the taxation of many for the benefit of tho few. Nay, Mr. Hughes do not permit yourself to ue rooiea Kentucky ma bo doubtful sometimes, hut ih ir u nn doubt about her this time, she Is for Wilson first, last and all times. The Colonel Dltgutted. Authentic renort Is that Colonel rtnnpvplt Is much more obsessed with the desire to defeat Wilton thB the lection ot Hughes, which be regards at a secondary consideration. The Colonel's antipathy for Wilson Is be cause of the fact that the president has eclipsed blm In tne service oi uie country and relegated him from the front page and from the limelight. It Is also said that Roosevelt Is dissat isfied with the Hughes performance in ih ut that he is almost ready to quit playing tecond fiddle in the swat fly campaign, at he cant it. miieau ot talking Americanism, be says Hughea' talks civil service reform and Instead of denouncing the German American alliance, denounce! extrava gance In governmental expenditure. He tiellevei be hat been tricked and It iimnat rnadv to oult. The Democrats. lowever, will object at he it mak n rnnra votat for Wilson than It tl roislblt tor him to make for Hugbti.
