News of this date, has the. following editorlaL by Col. H. A. Sommers: "At the Lexington .convention; Gov. Stanley, at his own request, was made temporary chairman.. This gave him a splendid opportunity fa put aside all questions of State poli tics, about which there is, division and' dissension, and sound a bugle blast for Woodrow Wilson.Saround whom; all Democrats are agreed and willing to rally. ; , "The occasion was one, when, KenVI tucky was selecting ils delegates fottft the St. Louis convention, to renomi- x nate Woodrbw Wilson, for President it was, therefore, acting opportun ity to extol the merits of .our candi- date and the wonderful achievements of his administration. Instead of do ing the proper thing the Governor did the improper thing. .speech was chiefly devoted to self ex'poiU tion and bragging about what tyie Legislaturevhad done at his dictation. Put Self First I "In other words, he put himself and his achievements, which should, have no part in thejeoming cam paign, ahead of Woodrow W.iIsort and his achievements upon which the national election must be decided The Governor did notjstop with this, but blundered further when he posed before the convention as a friend of tbe county unit law, when everybody knows that, at the instance of the: liquor interests, he killed in the House- the anti-shipping bill, after fifty-two member had asked the Rules Com mittee to report it for action. This, bill would have practically put the bootleggers' out of' business, and Gov. Stanley's action was in the in terest ot the 'bootleggers' instead of the county unit law. N flii Friends "Wef "If anything further was needed to show the insincerity of Gov. Stan ley on the question of the county unit, it is only necessary to look at the crowd with which he has sur rounded himself, and with his selec tion of Gen. Haldenan as National Committeeman and CampJJ Cari trill as campaign chairman, fcoth ot whom have continuously fought the county-unli and are the known cham- - pions of the liquor Interests and hava been the lobbyist of theliqtldf people "With this sort of a record we would as. soon believe that Governor Stanley was the friend of temperance as to beliCve the deri! A saint. We would just as soon believe that mit who were clustered around the Gov ernor on the stage, f- hil Grinstead, a Lawrence Reichert, Owsley Brown, Billy fclalr and Campbell CantnlL were the friends of teirperance as to., believe Gov. Stanley is. Attempted to Deceive f 'It was in bad taste for the Gov ernor to drag this question before the footlights, where it had no place, In a national campaign, but it was even worse for him to attempt to deceive the people of the State as to his real attitude in regard to the "liquor question."
