He snia that Mr Swope wn censuring him fur holding olTice too long, but replied that when hi long record in otlice M being criticised, the constituency of the district wus alo belrns criti cised, for he held the office only at the liandu of hi friends v. ho had seen fit to elect him. He itated that he had itarted at the bottom of the ladder and had worked himself up to his present po sition, something that his opponent was unable to say, for be thought that Mr. Swope imagined be could lit tain fame by a "hop. skip and n jump" arising to the honored portion of Consrevman by a uncle leap. He defended hi' pitrlotic record, that Mr. Swope bad assailed, and said that his bank account would show that he had ipeit more money in helping to stamp out the cruel war than all the Swope family put to irrther. lie denied very vehemently every criticism that had been thrust at him during the rampniRn. denying bitterly that he had ever spoken reproachfully of the drafted soldier, producing affidavit from twenty-four of the best citizens of Jessamine county, that no such words were uttered by him in his recent speech at Nicholas-Mllt- .

(le said that while Stanley' major Ity over Morrow was less than liOO, hi majority over hi opponent was over 8,000, which be and his friends thought wa a pretty fair record. He told of his first race for representa tive in a district that was normally 1,000 Republican and that he was able to defeat hi republican oppon ent by fifty votes. In all hi race he bad never lost n Democratic vote but I ad received njveral thousand repub lican votes. Hu paid hi respects, in no uncer tain tones, to Judge limes, Senator Specr, Eli 11.

CARROLL PLEDGES "House-cleaning" In Frankfort. SPOKE HERE LAST SATURDAY. Insists Black Is Ruled By The "Ring' A very good crowd came out last Saturday afternoon to, hear Judge John D. Carroll make his first speech in Garrard county in the Interest of his race for the nomination for Gov ernor, at the primary Saturday. He was introduced by Hon. J. H. .Mount, one of our local merchants, and nn old friend of Judge Carroll, having known him from young man hood. Judge Carroll" began by urging every Democrat in Garrard county to come to the polls next Saturday and vote for Judge Charles A. Hardin, for Congress, insisting that no more im portant race was ever held in Ken tucky than this one. In speaking of his own rnce, Judge Carroll reiterated hi charge that Governor Black was in the dutches of the office holders of the State, and by reason of that fact can not give the business-like administration, that one with hi hands free could give, He said that in defense of himself, in connection with the charge that the office holders of Kentucky were "riding" him, Gov. Hlack, in his speech at Mayfield, gave the names of five office-holders, charging that they were for Carroll. "Two of them I know- arc for me, but . to the remaining three I havo no information," Judge Carroll said. Accepting ns true, however, the statement that the entire five named by Gov. Black aie Carroll men, Judge Carroll sahl that would leave about 295 office-holders for Gov. Hlji-k, the Chief Justice pointing out that thcuc are iibout 400 office-holders in the 8:te. In his speed: here Saturday Judge C,i;!ol' said: "..i the cloing days of this cam I nii;i a good many trivial char.-ies Iciu- been mn.le againt me by Gov. li .u-k and his managers but I bae not publicly noticed any of trerr. ex cept on one occasion, and then against my own judgment. "I invited in the opening n most careful scrutiny of my public antl pri vate record, and I am glad to be able to confidently state nt this late day that, although my opponents have vigilanly searched both, neither they or anyone else have been able to find a single thing that would lose me a vote in the November election, if I was the nominee, or that would cause me or any other Democrat to spend a moment in defending,, explaining or apologizing for anything that 1 had ever said or done. Pais Letter Up Again. On the other hand. Gov. Black is everywhere nnd every place confront-' ed by that ugly and incriminating railroad letter. In every speech he spends half of his time in a pettifog ging way attempting to defend, ex plain and apologize for that indefen sible and incxplainable thing. If he is the nominee it" wilt stare at people from every telephone pole, billboard and public plnce'in the State, and no Democratic speaker of respectability, save and except Gov. Black, will have the effrontery to stand before any audience and undertake to defend it. I iigaln ask, would it he u safe or pru dent thing for the Democrats, with the experience of four years ago be fore them, to nominate as the head of the ticket Gov. Black, in this crisis In our party affairs? "I am told that in a recent speech Gov. Black said he called on me tu state if I would vutc for him if he was the nominee. Thi small inquiry is in strict keeping with many other part of hi speeches. Of course 1 (will vote for him. 1 voted for Ham- lett, us did thousands of other regu lar Democrats, but he went clown in defeat and seriously crippled the ticket because of an indefensible pub lie record that he hud made that cost him the support of many thousands of independent Democratic voter. "Aside from this railroud letter, which is n public record und a vital and legitimate issue in this race, brought iiito it by Gov. Black him self, I have not In any speech or puo lie tutcment mentioned any matter of n p rsonnl nature concerning Go.. I'lac-K, Want Business Administration. "I have a notion that the body of tho Democrats of the State nro more concerned In big thing than they are in little things, and that they are more concerned about what the Gov ernor will do if elected than '.hey are about the- petty personal charges that aru being banuled around. They wunt to know- that the n:au h Is elertc I Danville's New Ice Cream Parlor. On another page in this issue we arc carrying an advertisement of Park' Ice Cream Parlors, which has Just opened for business in Danville We had the pleasure of a visit thru their factory Tuesday and pronounce it, without hesitation, one of t:ie most up-to-date parlors in Kentucky.

Reward If returned to this office or, W. II. Gulley, 24-it-pd. Lancaster II. 3. Governor will have the firmness and the courage to give to the people of the State a gold, economical busi ness administration of public affairs. They want the law enforret! nnd or der rerfrved Tey wan, men of churnctt- und nbiluy to (III high of ticsj. Ihey want a tystem of taxa tion that will be as fair and just as circumstances und condition will permit. They want our charitable and penal institutions taken out of politics. They want to stop the waste and extravagance that are a Dart of every government that is dominated by machine politics and machine poli ticians. "The people want a housecleaning at Frankfort. They want to sec some new men nnd new faces in the offices ind department. They want to get rid of the names that have become familiar only because of long tenure of office, and these ure some of the good things they will get if I am Gov ernor. "My hands arc free and my pur pose fixed to give the people a new, clean and good business administra tion. I have many, times said and I now repeat that if elected I will not, under any circumstances, appoint any man to any office, big or little, un less he is honest and competent and well qualified to perform the duties of the particular office or place to which he is appointed; an dno amount of politicial or personal influence can persuade me to change this fixed and determined purpose. "The members of the Important boards and commissions should be kind of men need apply, and these and will be men of high character linn fine business capacity. No other boards and commissions will be held accountable for the proper conduct of their departments. To this end they should anil would have the right to employ and discharge assistants with out the interference of politics or politicians. I have no political ma chine and do not want any. My only ambition would be to build up a good business machine. "The Governor is at the head of the State and the people look to hint to protect their interest and no head of any large business concern can tlo this unless he can say 'yes' and 'no', reach a just decision nnd deliver it according to the right of the case when he understands it. Put End To Estravaf ance. "I must ask the Democrats and the people of the State to take my word for it, because I can offer no other security except my word, which I have always made guod in business us well ns in politics, that if elected I will give all of my time, experience and whatever ability 1 possess to an effort to put the business affairs of the State on n good business basis. I will administer that valuable budget tcm act according to its purpose. If my recommendation nre adopted 1 may confidently say that an end will be put to the waste ami extravagance that everybody knows has been go ing on under Republican as well fu Democratic adininistiatious for many years. "Gov. Hl.ick gave the name nt Mayfield of five officeholders that he said were now supporting me. Two of them I know ; as to the other three I have no information a to their attitude. There nre ubout 400 officchulderi, and if Gov Black wa- cutrect In In statement, then 8i).r jf them are for him and five of tiient for me. ' "I again repeat and the Democrats of the State know it, that he ollice holdcrs have taken possession of hint ami he has taken possession of them. There la scarcely a county In the State in which they are no: binding every e'Tort to secure hi notuinaiton. If he I Governor there cannot be nnd veill not be any business reforms or any tutting down cf unnecesary e-prin- or cutting off of useless officers or e'f'plpye,'
