THE: ADAIR COUNTS NEWS I THE ADAIR COUNTY NEWS Published Every Wednesday BY THE 'Adair County News Company. ( Incorporated.) 3HAS. S. HARRIS EDITOR. Democratic newspaper devoted to the ln--UMt of the City of Columbia and the people Adair and. adjacent counties. Catered at the Columbia Post-office as sec ad class mail matter. WED. DEC, 3, 1913 The announcement of Hon. Rollin-Hurt, of this city, as a candidate for the Democratic nomination for Judge in this, the 3rd Appellate district, is received with as much genuine enthu siasm as any candidacy ever had in this section of country. It is not our disposition nor purpose to play to the favor of any local candidate, for any position, un less convinced of his real merit, but in this instance, were we prone to exagerate, it would be bard to convince the many who &now him throughout South cen tral Kentucky, that the truth had been overstated. Born and rear-, ed near Columbia, educated in theM. & F. High School, he studied law and was admitted to the bar about thirty years ago. Being a man of broad, natural ability and equipped with B thorough knowledge of law, he soon took position in the front st the bar in this and adjoining counties which is attested by his clientage not surpassed by any lawyer in any country of equal litigation. The lawyers of the district and the entire State .know him to be pre-eminently fitted for the high position he seeks. As a citizen he is a plain man one of "the great common people," dependable under any and all circumstances with as big heart as palpitates in human breast. As a Democrat he is as true to principle as any man and while ready and willing to ad vance his party's interest he has never made himself offensive to those who opposed. He possesses the happy faculty of a hard-hit-;ter and vote-getter. In fact, he 3s the peer of any man as a cam paigner when the tug of war is on and will add as many votes to the cause he represents as any one in the field of political battle- We know him to be a law yer possessing every attribute of an able, honest, fearless Judge n Judge who would not b e swerved from duty by any pow .erof the "interests" that too ften wield an influence over men of less firmness and less legal ability. The Democratic ;party of this district could not nominate a stronger man before ine people, they could not name .one more closely allied with the great body, nor could they elect one who would be truer, abler or .fairer than our distinguished townsman, Rollin Hurt. This nartof the district, comprising 3.0 or 12 counties, his home, and where he is really, truly known, will deliver its Democratic votes In' the primary solid for him and if we mistake not the temper ment of men and the pulse of Democracy in this Appellate dis trict he will occupy the exhaulted position of Judge of the Court of Appeals in the regular order of political events and the Demo crats will ever feel proud of it. EXPRESSIONS ON MR. HURT'S CANDIDACY. Rollin Hurt, of -Adair county, is prosecuting his canvass for the Democratic nomination for Judge of the Court of Appeals, in the district now represented by Judge J. P. Hobson, of Elizabethtown. Judge Hobson has made a splen did judge, but if the people of that district desire a change, they can do no better than to se lect Rollin Hurt. He measures up in every way to the high standard required of a member of the State's-supreme bench and his host of friends in Lincoln and adjoining counties would rejoice to see him so honored. Stanford Journal. In the candidacy of Hon, Rollin Hurt, of Columbia, for Judge of the Court of Appeals from this district, his opponents -have a gentleman to reckon with. Mr. Hurt is one of the noblest Ken tucky gentlemen in the State and is admired and asteemed where ever he is known. His learning and ability is unquestioned. He is as strong as he is gentle. His reputation is simply spotless. No one can venture to intimate a doubt of the absolute honesty of this man who has been in the eyes of the public for a quarter of a century. Nor can any one successfully dispute the simple proposition that in the whole district no one could be named for Judge of the Court of Ap peals who is better fitted by na ture, by training and experience at the bar for the duties, digni ties and responsibilities of said office, Mr. Hurt is just in the prime of life and would grace the tribunal to which he aspires with distinction to himself and credit to a marked degree to the district.
