The Clarion. A Strong Letter For McChesney and the Right. Dear Mr. Habbage: In your last issue I noticed some one wrote up Mr. Mc Chesney speaking to such small crowds. 1 can't tell where this party got such rotten :tuff ns that, unless he got same from the Courier Journal, the whisky organ. I am sure Mr. McChesney has been greeted with the largest crowds of any candidate in the last forty years who has made a race for the Governor ship of Kentucky, and what I deem the most respectable crowds, who want to blot out one of the greatest evils that confronts the American people today, and I do hope and pray that the good voters and law abiding citizens of this county and State will vote for McChes ney. He Is the ideal candidate for Governor. I am for him first, last and all the time, against the world, fles and the devil. Yours very truly, E. E. Glasscock, Locust Hill, Ky., July 12, 1015. GOV.
