Democratic Campaign Headquarters
Hardinsburg, Ky., October 29, 1912.
Notice to Democrats and Committeemen:
A meeting of tbo Breckinridge County Democratic Executive find Campaign Committees is
hereby called for Saturday, November 2, 1912, at the Court House in Hardinsburg, at the hour of one
o'clock p. m. At this hour and place the Democrats of our county will receive a messago from Gov.
Woodrow Wilson, and the Committees will convey same to their respective precincts. All Democrat
arc invited to bo present.
I was in State headquarters this week and saw direct communications from the National Demo
cratic managers. They say that victory i3 ours, without doubt. Therefore, it should bo tho ambition
and purpose of every Committeeman and every Democrat to make our county's showing such as to do
servo its share of tho honors and patronage, if any thero be. Tho Progressives have developed unex
pected and appalling strength in many of the formerly safe Republican States. Money is being bet in
Louisville that Roosevelt will carry Kentucky over Taft. The "Bull Moosers" aro in tho battle to tho
finish, and will control the county organization of many Kentucky counties. Their managers claim they
will break oven or carry Breckinridge. The New York, Ohio and Indiana Republican vote is about
evenly divided between Taft and Roosevelt, thus indicating Wilson's victory in each of theso pivotal
States, and California is practically sure to be carried by Roosevelt. Pennsylvania oven is very doubt
ful, and favors Wilson.
I earnestly urge that the Democratic election officers bo at tho polls promptl'. Let those who
have heretofore served be on hand to give advice and assistance in procuring a full vote and fair count.
Challengers and inspectors will be named by the precinct chairman.
Our friends, the Republicans, have heretofore howled for clean politics. It is a notorious fact
that the' bought each other like cattle in the recent county convention, which was dominated by post
masters and office-holders. I do not know whether or not they will use money or whiskey in this elec
tion. I do know that every cent that I have disbursed is tho voluntary gift of individuals, contributed
as heretofore published; and further, that not one cent of it has been or will bo spent for votes or whis
key, and that my disposition of every cent of it will be shown by written publication. Our campaign
has been and will be conducted as our peerless leader has directed, "by the people and for the people."
If we win, so much greater the victory; if we lose, wo at least can remember that our cause was right
eous, and that our methods and candidate were fair and clean.
I earnestly urio that young Democrats of tho county to become interested in politics and good
government. Although Kentucky is positively safe, our count' is always a battle ground, and next
year is tho time for a struggle. If you hope for the assistance of othors next year, help tho organiza
tion now. What your precinct does usually shows what you have done as individuals. You should have
an interest in politics now, even if you want nothing; and, if you want nothing now, you may some
time. Get out tho vote in your precinct as on this tho result largely depends.
Senator Bradley will arrive Wednesday full of light and pretended confidence. He is an ex
perienced, brilliant and eloquent campaigner. I am informed that tho great trick that will be sprung
at tho last momont is tho announcement "THAT ROOSEVELT IS OUT OF THE RACE AND THAT
ALL OF HIS STRENGTH WILL GO TO TAFT." I believe our people are too smart to be gulled
by this, and I only mention it that all may know how to meet the report.
Having done all that I have been directed to do by tho higher campaign authorities, I trust
that tho five Committeemen in each precinct will see mo on or boforo November 2, and receive final in
structions and do their duty; and that every Democrat will vote himself and see that those around him
do likewise. Lot's all realize our duty, as this is the best chance of our lives to elect our man.
I am yours for success,
Chairman Breckinridge County Campaign and Executive Committees.

During that time he has met with three
severe accidents. At Asklns he was
working in a cut and was buried fifteen
feet in sand. Three men pulled him
out of the sand with his eyes and ears
and mouth full of the grains and three
ribs broken.
It seemed like an avalanche of trou

No sooner had he recovered than he
got knocked in the head with a spike
and he refused to go to a doctor.
The round of trouble he had was in a
wreck west of Rockvale he got his
jaw-bone broken in three places, skull
crushed in three places, left shoulder
broken, feet scalded and a piece of
timber run in his hip. He was laid off
