CLOVERPORT, KENTUCKY, WEDNESDAY, JULY 17, 1918. 8 Pages No. 3 m Kaiser's Famous Division Stopped by Yank Gunners Staff And 1,500 Of Enemy Taken Prisoner JUDGE SETTLE REPLIES To the Eligibility of His Can didacy for Judge of the Court of Appeals- My attention lias been called to a publication in a newspaper of this ap pellate District, ctlling in question my residence in Warren county. The public will readily understand that this publication emanates from Judge J. V. Henson, my opponent for the Democratic nomination for Judge of the Court of Appeals, and that it is an expiring effort to save himself from impending defeat.. Al though the alleged facts upon which he is resting this absurd publicttion were investigated by him two months or more ago, he has not seen fit to publish them until now. His pur pose in withholding them from the public until this late day will be as readily perceived as his motive for publishing them at all. My friends need not be disturbed by this or any latter-day campaign , propoganda of like kind. I have, in fSct, had a legal resi dence and been a tax-payer in Bow ling Green, Warren county, Ken tucky, for over forty years, and not a year during this period has ever passed without my having voted at every election, whether general, spec ial or primary, held in that city or for that county, and my status as a citizen and resident of Bowling Green has never changed. Of course the performance of my duties as Judge of the Court of Ap peals has required my official resi dence during the most of the year at Frankfort, but during all the time I have been at Frankfort upon the Ap pellate Bench, engaged in the per formance of my duties, I have regu larly returned to Bowling Green to cast an unchallenged Democratic vote as a citizen and a resident there of, in every instance registering for that purpose since the time when registration has been required bv law. Some portion of my vacation in each year has likewise been spent in said city and county. The statute referred to by lf. pub lication in question has been in exis tence for more than forty years, but during the whole of thai time hn been largely disregarded by official of the State who were compelled to remain at Frankfort for the perfor mance of official duties as 1 have been; for this statute is merely direc tory, not mandatory, and a W n-coi.i-pliance with it does not alter th" Uct of my legal residence At iiwr !ast election to thil effee, which I no again seek, ni" then Rf publics. exponent, who was learned to the law. ;"d not raise any qucMo whatever as to my legal residence or ..lii i'pVt '. .ilthough condition-; tlicn WCrt ex.u'itj' the same as now It ha; ii'nained for Judg.- Ilexson. m the la-t ays of this can.p;':gn, ana for purely selfish purposes and politi cal ends, to attempt to inspire a doubt as to my eligibility, heretofore unchallenged and undenied. The Democratic voters of the Dis trict may rest assured that if chosen their nominee 1 shall win the election and take my seat just exactly as under the same conditions I did eight tkl I ago.

FRENCH INDEPEN DENCE DAY Observed in Methodist Church Sunday Morning. Marsell aise Sung and The Origin of the Day Told by Pastor. in comma ration of the Fall af Hastile in ITM, known as the French Declaration of Independence, the pas tor of the Cloverport Methodist church, Rev. W. L. Baker, held a special service at his church Sunday morning. Before the sermon, Misses F"va May and F.liza May sung the Mar sellaise. France's National anthem, while the audience stood, followed by the singing of America. Rev. Baker's subject was "a Work ingFaith," basing it upon the scrip ture verse "if thou canst believe all things are possible to him that be lieveth." He gave as an excellent illustration the Fall of Rastile, or generally known as the fall of des potism in France, when the French people freed themselves of a monar chal government. Rev. Baker brought out the fact that the people of F'rance lost faith in their king, therefore the king and people were out of harmony which resulted in a complete revolution and right ruled. He also applied the same illustra tion to individuals, saying that the people who had faith in God and be lieved, to them all things were pos sible and right would reign in their lives likewise At the evening service there was an unusally large congregation to hear the sermon in song. Rev. Bak er preached the gospel in a striking manner by reading the scripture les sons and the choir singing hymns that bore upon the text of the scrip ture. The subject of the sermon was "The Open and Closed Door." On next Sunday evening the Wo man's Missionary Society will have charge of the service! and a very in teresting program is being arranged for that service.
