Hon. A. O. Stanley will speak for
the Democratic ticket at the Court
House at one o'clock this afternoon
and a good speech is in store for all
who hear it. The Mayfield Messen
ger says of his speech last week:
"Congressman A. O Stanley de
livered a political speech at the
courthouse Wednesday night to a
house fairly full of our representa'
tive citizens. Mr. Stanley took his
text from one of, Mr. Wilson's points
used in his acceptance of his nomi
nation for the presidency, in which
he said that ' Private interests con
trolled and managed the legislation
of this country."
"Mr. Stanleyalthough not an elo
quent speaker is a forceful one and
being familiar with the workings of
the tariff and the trusts makes him
a very entertaining speaker. He
has been in congress for a number of
years and will be re-elected at the
coming November election. Is for
tj'-five years old and has made his
mark in congress above the average
' Mr. Stanley is a candidate before
the state printary election of 1913
for a seat in the United States senate

"Mr. Stanley met quite a number
of our people here, who gave him

to him that he was among friends
and who were appreciating his ef

both predicted that Gov. Wilson's
majority on November 5 will be
from 1,000,000 to 1,125,000, based
on straw votes taken in debatable
States, and the Herald conceded to
the Democrats twenty-six of the

that, after pledges had been made
within $600 of the amount needed,
contracts were made to tear down
the old building and erect a new one

The present pastor is Rev. James
Cleavenger, and he and those in

praise for their untiring labor -and
manifest zeal in carrying out the
work to a finish. They have reared
