CONTEST THE NIGHT LONG Louisville, Ky., May 3O The Dem ocratic state convention, In session long past midnight, Instructed the twenty-six votes of Kentucky to vote tas a unit for Champ Clark for presi dent; elected John C. C. Mayo, the Eastern Kentucky millionaire, as a member of the Democratic national committee to succeed Urey Woodson, who has been a member for sixteen years, and named Rufus Vansant as chairman of the Democratic state cen tral committee. The administration forces were In the saddle from the time Governor James B. McCreary was elected tem porary chairman of the convention ov er Senator-elect Ollle M. James by a vote of 053 to 667, until the adjourn ment this morning. It was after 11 o'clock last night when the committee on resolutions made Its report, Instructing that Ken , tucky's vote be cast for Champ Clark -for president. Urges Woodson's Name. It was then that Judge J. W. Hen son, of Henderson count', a member of the committee on resolutions, offered a jnlnority report. This report signed by three other members of the committee said that in view of the long and faith ful services of the Hon. Urey Woodson, as a member of the Democratic na tional committee, and the compliment paid Kentucky by his being retained as secretary for eight years, that the convention be Instructed to reelect him for a term of four years. James Kehoe rose to a point of or der, saying that it was his impression that the delegates to the national con vention elected the national committee man. Judge Henson read a telegram from Norman . Mack, of the national com mittee, to the effect that a Democratic state coqveution is a sovereign body, and can elect the national committee man, or instruct the delegates, cr leave it to the delegates themselves. Mayo's Name Presented. Mr. Kehoe moved then that the name of John C. C. Mayo be substituted for that of Mr. Woodson. Ollie M. James demanded a call of the counties, and suggested that that vote be recorded as for Woodson or Mayo to elucidate the voting. It required over an hour to call the counties, during which time there was a great deal of confusion, several of the delegates from the mountains at tempting to vote the counties which were not represented by delegates at the night session. Carries Second District. Mr. Woodson carried every county in the second district with the excep tion of Christian and a part of Web ster. One of the delegates from Web ster declared that Dr. J. A. Goodson was violating the caucus agreement which was that the vote of Webster county would be cast as a unit for Mr. Woodson. The result, ss announcid by Chair man McCreary was: Mayo, C9S; Wood son, 49O. Early this morning the convention instructed the delegates to the national convention to vote for Champ Clark as long as his name was before the na tional convention. Tne following are the delegates-at-large: Governor J. B. McCreary, Ollie M. James, J. C. W. Beckham, Judge Allle W. Young, John C. 0. Mayo, Jus tis Goebel, Congressman A. O. Stanley and Ben Johnson. The result is a victory and defeat for Ollle James, He secured a solid del egation for Champ Clark, but was him' self defeated for temporary chairman by Governor McCreary. Urey Woodson, for eight years secretary of the nation al committee, went down in defeat with James, being defeated for nation al committeeman on the floor of the convention by John C. 0. Mayo, by a vote of 69S to 4o2. The administration forces made a clean sweep, electing Rufus Vansant chairman of the state committee; W.B.

Setting A Good Example To Main Street Business Men By Clean ing Weeds Off Of The Kitchen Pavement-A Clean Clover port Wanted.

He has cleaned up the weeds around the English Kitchen and swept off the pavement that has been covered with coco cola tops for a year. He Is going to keep up his good work because he says he likes to please the ladies. The business girls who are down town so much are certainly grateful to Mr. Hayden and all the business men who are beginning to take some inter est in keeping the pavements clean. If the men would quit spitting on the streets the town would be far more decent and respectable. A "Clean Clo- verport" is what the people want and soon the old town will be a pride to the citizens.

HAYDEN Ycnrs mid years nsco there lived a certain ambitious limn within gun-shot of the great diamond fields in Africa, over which tlio disastrous Boer war was fought. This man, whom wc will call Diamond Hunter, for distinction, read and studied the literature and advertising matter of all the countries in the world except his own. Ho believed somowhere in the world there were fields of diamonds and liko many of us in Breckin ridge count, believed the wore far from homo. Diamond Hunter started on his world's chase for fortune, then a very young man. After years of toil and hard work abroad and far from loved ones, ho crept back to his African home, sack on his back, and told his home people: "There are no diamonds, because I have searched the world." One of his boyhood pals said: '-'You are standing on diamonds now the whole country side about you is now giving to the world its supply of precious sems. You have searched far and wide but not at homo whore acres of diamonds lay under your feet." There are upwards of live thousand mule voters in Breckin ridge county, the majority of whom arc live, able-bodied, healthy citizens, with good hoalthy minds. The trouble is, wo have too many Diamond Hunters. Wo real our families of hoys and girls and read to them from the farm papers about the wonders of Oklahoma and Texas, about the virtues of the Northwest and balmy clime and fertile fields of California. Wo read to ourselves and tell the boys about rich orange groves of Florida and the celery crops down there that make men rich in a season. Our boys grow up and leave home. They travel to the country that "Pa" told them about. O.ur girls have shy am bitions for a foreign beau, thinking ho can make her a better living. The boys who make good, wo hear of; 'those who do not, and they are in the majority, we know not. The girls, God bless them. Wo make Diamond Hunters of our boys and of ourselves because wc do not realize that right here in Breckinridge county wo have THE MOST LIVABLE CLIMATE, THE MOST FERTILE ACRES, THE RICHEST UNDEVELOPED OPPORTUNITIES, THE MOST BEAUTIFUL SCENERY, in fact ACRES OF DIAMONDS The thing we do realize, which should mortify and shame every .full grown man in the Count, is: BRECKENRIDGE COUNTY HAS DISGRACEFUL ROADS. The reason many of our blessed women in Breckenridge county have to help their husbands in the fiell, and the reason many of our men grow to manhood without being able to read and write, is because our bad roads have been millstones around their necks and their fathers' necks for years. Without good roads, schools and churches und social activity arc impossible. Those counties and states that have built good roads are the communities that have advanced. Their people could cotrmiuni cate with each other, exchungo ideas and thus improve them selves. Good roads in Breckenridge county would help us cash in the bountiful gifts of Providence. Wo could then develop the acres of diamonds that lie everywhere about us. The Diamond Hunter would then corao to us. Our boys and girls would remain at homo among loved ones. The people of the North, East, South, and West praise Kentucky. There is magic in the name. Wo should justify this praise and develop our opportunities. Start at home, start in Breckenridge county. Tell jour magistrate ho must give you bettor roads. When a man asks you to vote for him for anything put the good roads question square up and make him come clean. The County is willing to help, the State is anxious to help, and Congress will help those people at homo who first holp themselves. Other counties and states are drawing funds from these very channels, because their people act as well as talk. Our bad roads are mute evidence of our own neglect. Our lethargy is robboryl How long shall wo continue to rob ourselves of our own acres of diamonds? " " " J&y t'40" JJBBB rH " J ,y BBto z- if 1 1 w.

Pioneer In Aviation Victim Of Typhoid Fever After Long Illness-Leaves A Large Fortune-Was Born Near Mill ville, Ind. HAD NO TIME FOR SOCIETY. Dayton, Ohio, May .10. Wilbur Wright, the first man to actually fly In an neroplan, died this morning. He had been ill of typhoid fever for several weeks and his deathjeame after a relapse. Messages of condolence have been received from all over the world. The family believed that the crises had passed two days ago, but the phy sicians were not so hopeful. The pa tient had been unconscious for some time and at midnight he began to sink rapidly. For the first time the physi cians attempted to give him nourish ment yesterday morning. He died peacefully just before dawn. The life of Wilbur Wright is so inter woven with that of his brother, Orville, that no one but the surviving brother himself will ever be able to set forth the exact share of both in the honor and the fame accorded to them for the prac tical solving of the great problem of aerial navigation. The world has never been told what Wibur did or what Orville did; to which one the first idea came; it does not know which one planned the first glider or the latest equilibrator, which one hit upon the vertical rudder, the warping plane, the advantage of placing the operator's seat on the lower plane; no one knows which one worked out the first theory of air currents.which one glided against these rising and spiral currents, and in all likelihood the world will never know any of this, for every attempt to divide the "we" into "I's'" has been absolu tely without success. Only this has trickled out, Wilbur Wright was the first man in the history of the world to leave flat ground in an engine driven, heavier than air flying machine. The brothers have grown wealthy, with more money pouring in upon them every day. The success never turned the head of either. Wilbur Wright never married and had no time for society. Unless some function kepi him up, he preferred to go to bed at 0 o'clock at night and arise before 0 o'clock in the morning. Adair-Gans. Mrs. Sarah Ann Adair announces the engagement of her grand-daughter, Brownie Adair, to Mr. Henry Calhoun Gans, of Owensboro, Kv. The marriage will take place June nineteenth. Han cock Clarion.
