MUCHASK HI QUESTION
Who is Judge Carncs l
Probably no question has been
asked oftoncr during the last week
and in the main the inquiry went
unanswered Kentucky has been
interested in the Ilnrgis trials and
wanted to know who was tho oval
judge selected by Goy Bcckham
and what his record was Tho in
quiry came from nil sides and met
with only one response I dont
know
To answer this question which
IIIH been so presistcntly asked
during tho last few days the
CourierJournal correspondent
came to Williamstown yesterday
I arriving on the same train with
the mart from Williamstown and
the drummer He heard their
I conversation and after tho drum
mer had left the train pursued
the inquiry further with thlr man
from Williamstown Further in
quirt after reaching Williamstown
developed some facts which had
not been known before outside of
WilliamstownA
A prophet is not without hon
or sao in his own country and
this applies equally as well to the
special judge appointed by Coy
Beckham to try IInrJis and others
Ask a citizen of Williamstown
Who is Judge Carncs and he
will reply
replyJust
Just Bill Carnes
lie was sure tickled to death
when ho was appointed to try that
Hargis case but the boys will
rag him some now and 1 expect
ho will come buck home at night
when ho docs come for the boys
will have some fun with him
CANDIDATE FOR OFFICK
Judge Carncs has been a candi
date for office Ho has run for
County Judge twice once for
Commonwealths Attorney and
was once elected County Attor
ney He has run for office be
tween cases and has been n fro
qucnt candidate although never
i but once successful Grant county
is a Democratic county The
Democrats have carried this county
in all elections by majorities rang
ing from 300 to 500
When Senator J C S Black
burn made his race for reelection
with Judge Payntcr as his nominal
opponent Judge Carnes was a
firm supporter of the Senator
Grant county was n scat of war in
those days Tho Pn nterA min
istration forces had selected lr
Scott to bo tho representative
from that county Tho Blackburn
men wanted a man to run against
him in the interests of tho Sena
tor James was suggested as tho
man to beat Dr Scott Ho did
not accept tho place
Several weeks before tho race
Carnes surprised Williamstown by
annoumcing as a supporter of Dr
Scott and Paynter Presumably
ho voted for Dr Scott who was
elected
Carncs was originally for Sena
tor McCreary who had been his
friend Early in the campaign be
tween Bcckham and Senator Mc
Crcary Carnes came out for tho
Governor and began working for
