Considerable interest is being manifested by republi cans toward the Eleventh Dis trict congressional race. Up until yesterday names mentioned in connection with the honor were those ot Caleb Powers, the in cumbent, of Barboursville, and Don C. Kdwards, of London. It developes that the contest is likely to be a three-cornered pffair and thu I,. W. Retburum, of Mt. Vernon, Rockcastle County, will have 10 be rtckoued with in the August primaries.

Situation Muddled. ine situation at present in the Eleventh Distiict is somewhat muddled, owing to the keen rivalry between friends of Caleb Powers Jd Don C. Edwards. Mr. Powers is understood to be a supporter of President Taft although what' work he did in hehalf of the' President prior to the State con-' vention was kept orettv murli under cover, according "to the view taken by Senator Bradley It is doubtful, therefore, if" Powers' would be accorded the united support of the Taft faction, not withstanding he has a strong Style That Stays Stylish Style is so imoortanf a maH-fPf W c .u . ... want your clothes to look that way after weeks ard months oi wear you must be particular to get something more than just style Your Clothes Will Not Keep Their style unless they're made that way; "made that way" means all-wool fabrics scientific shrinking processs, best linings, interlinings and trimmings OUR CLOTHES Stav STYLISH HH J5c,. two for 25c HH MONARCH SHIRKS SUTTON THE EMPORIUM personal following and would make a good showing in the primaries in the event President Taft1 is re nominated. On the other hand Mr. Edwards is an out-and out Roo.evelt mau and should the Colonel capture the nomination at Chicago he would in al' likelihood, make a runaway I race in the primaries. I Now that there is talk of a compromise candidate for Presi dent the question is raised as to whether it would not be a good plan to nominate a "compromise" man to make the congressional race Friends of L. VV. Be thurum say be is the logical man to be nominated if circumstances shape themselves as herein out lined. Reduced Helm Majorities. Mr. Bethurum, prior to the perpetuat:ng of the congressional district gerrymander by the last Legislature, resided in the Eighth Congressional District. Under the provisions of the Pritchard act hi county Rockcastle, wasdumped iLtojthe Eleventh. While in 'the Eighth Eistiict, Mr Bethurum twice made the race for Congress against Harvey Helm, the Democratic incumbent, and both times succeeded in pulling down the latter's majorities. Mr. Bethurum is one of the best known Republicans in Kentucky. He was named delegate to the national convention from the Eighth District before the transfer of his county to the Eleventh District was recognized by the State Central Committee. He served one term as a member of the latter body with distinction to himself and aid to the party. According to Mr. Bethurum's friends the warm reception tendered him by the political powers of the Eleventh District auKur well for his future tortunes Betfcuruni visited the cify 11111 a.doiiUi?S th,al race for congress did u ,,u UICCU IU LUHKP np not commit himself concerning ;his plans for the future. ----- wvw.uwA uiaiuutui uic most import ant things about it is How long will k s;ay stylish?
