BAXTER Writer in Nicholasville New Pays Tribute to Youn g Can didate and Urges Support Folks coming over from Jessa minp are telling of the remarka ble loyalty with which his home county is going to support Will iam J. Haxter, of Jessamine, in his race for the Democratic nom ination for Commonwealth At torney. They are saying that out in the country sections of his county, he will show up with a vote that will prove how close he is to the democrats of his home county and prove to the demo crats of the other counties of the district, just how regarded he is by his home folks and they are the ones who know a man best. An indication of how the good, old country folks are rallying to Haxter is evidenced in a recent issue of the Nichnlasville News. "Sandy RlutI'" correspondent of the News down on iheShun pike, who is said to be perhaps the best posted political prophet in all his section, said this the oth er day : Wm. J. Haxter has thrown his hat in the ring for Common wealth Attorney in the v'oth Ju dicial district. Mr. Haxter is i rising young attorney and is now County Attorney of Jessamine, and has made one of the best, who has ever served the people of this county in the responsible position. His opponent is an able and honorable man of whose po litical career of long service is an everlasting monument to him and whose ollicial acts stands above reproach. Surely the time must come when men cannot mo nopolize elective ollices. The fundamental principles of genu ine Democracy teaches and ad vocates a square deal to all men and when the voters of Madison, Powell, Clark and Jessamine re alize that it is unjust aiitl utter ly preposterous to keep one man in i llice a life time why then our energetic, able and deserving young attorney, W. .1. Haxter, will have a glorious opportunity to prove his capabilities and tin n reach higher for a sweeter polit ical plum and thus give some other ambitious aspirant an op portunity to fall in line with that admiruhle principle of ''rotation in (. llice." Very intimately hc quainted with Mr. Haxter we feel that there could be no bet ter or more capable nun in the judit i il district than he for this responsible and important ollice. His dt inocracy cannot be criti cised, his integrity iinquest jona hie and his morals above par. Fellow citizens when you vote for Haxter for Commonwealth's Attorney you are casting your vote for a man w ho is no politic al coward and will perform his duties regardless of fear or fa vor. We sincerely entreat the voters oi Jessamine especially to give Hilly Rixter their support because he digs into perplexities, overcomes difficulties and never whines i n defeat. Richmond Register.
