CANTjRILL ENTERS ' GOVERNOR'S RACE Seventh District Congressman Announces Can didacy For Nomination Strong Statement of Hit Position on Stato IeiuesTrib- ute to Woodrow Wilton TO THE DEMOCRATS or KENTUCKY: 1 hnve been moch Impressed with the campaign conducted by numerous Kentucky newspapers demanding that a business man only should be nom inated Tor Governor'. I am In sympa thy with thlg movoment. I have wait ed for weeks for some outstanding Democrat and business man to an nounce his candidacy. In fact, I have on numerous occasions talked with one of the most successful business Tnpn nnji nnn nf thfi mna lnvnl Dattiv. I erats In the State, urging him to run for the Democratic nomination for Governor, nnd offered my support In case he should make the race. This gentleman declined to enter the race. Many active Democratic men and Tvomen In nil sections of tho State Jiavc nsked me to stand for the Demo cratic nomination for Oovcrnor. I Iiavc decided to announce as a can didate. The fact that I own nnd operate sever.il farms In Scott and Fayette Counties I believe entitles me to be classed as a business man. If I do not como under the classification of a business man. then the newspapers demanding a business man for Gov ernor have shut out of pulltlc.tl con sideration every f.irmer In the State. The farmor of today Is as much a business man ns the merchant, broker, banker or manufacturer. The great xnnjrrlty of the business i.,tn of Ken dldatcs themselves, and I consider II proper in my announcement to verj briefly state somo of the leading Is sues which are of Interest to tho citi zens of Kentucky. In announcing my self as a cnndldate for tho Democratic nomination for Governor, I wish to emphasize tho fact that I consider the Governorship of our Stato the highest honor which can be given o Kentucklan, and I pledge myself tc the people of Kentucky that '1 elected Governor, under no circum stances would I seek the Scnntorshlp or nny other office but would fill out the term completely for which I wn elected. No man In tho Governor chair can give the Stato his best ser vice when he hag his eye on some fu ture political preferment. I favor n Primary Election to deter mine the nomination of the Demo cratic candidate for tho Governorship. I believe It would be political suicide for our Party to make the nomination In nny other way. Only In a. Primary Election can the women voters of the State give full expression to their po litical opinions. I think the greatest service n pub lic ofilcer can render the State at thh time Is to attend strictly to tho busi ness of the State nnd to leave It to the business men to handle their own business and to the people to tegulate their own nffalr' so Ion; ns they do not violate our present laws. To make It still plainer, I think we have enough lion. Campbell Caniril , Ca.ididatJ i-'ur Governor teucky are farmers, and being one of , laws at present regulating the busl then J believe I know their trials ami ! ness and the every-day life of tin hadshlp3, and that If 'I am elected people. - "V Ofivn.-nnr I ran h nf .prtlrp In then) and to the State as a whole, because when tho farmer prospers all lines cf business share In that prosperity. The chief problems to be solved In Kentucky are In the main of an agrl cultural nature, and Kentucky has not had a fanner Governor for almost forty years. The Governor of the State can personally attend to but a small part of the State's business. 3Iost of the business of the State Is actually transacted by those whom the Governor appoints under the laws passed by the Legislature. The busi ness of organization Is the chief duty of the Governor, and It Is absolutely necessary for the welfare of the State that the Governor work In harmony with the State Legislature and the or ganizations of the various State De jpartments. In recent years I have been charged with the duty of getting thousands of men and women Into compact work ing organizations, both In a political and In n business way. In 1010 I was State Chairman of the Democratic Campaign Committee In Kentucky -which rolled up a majority of nearly thirty thousand for the Democratic ticket, and In that organization there were ten thousand active men and There Is a tendency In the country today to keep piling on tho rtotuti' books laws regulating the business anil prlvute affairs of the citizens. I am of the opinion that It Is the part of wisdom that we learn our presen! laws and obey thorn rather than bring into disrepute all law by furthei restrictive legislation. If I am elected Governor, nil law a on the statute books will be thor oughly and carefully enforcod as far as ray powers will reach. The chief concern In th" State and Nation to day Is the strict enforcement of law and the absolute maintenance of peace and ordor. For the security of thf Individual and for the protection of property rights, law and order must be maintained. If elected Jovernor, I pledge tin best that Is within me to carry out this statement. If elected, pardons will be scarce -it Frankfort, especially for the crime of taking human life. The reputation cf our State must be bettered along this line. High taxation Is the sore spot with the people In the State and Nation. The legislative branch of our State Government writes tho tax laws, hut women In tho State. For three years J If elected Governor I will work with I was Stato President of tho Society of Equity with Its thousands of fann er members, and this was the organ ization which wai one of the pioneer movements teaching cooperation among the farmers. Years ago this organization did the work which is now being carried on on a larger scale by several splendid Farmers' Organ izations of today. I mention these matters simply to show that I have had experience on a largo scale along organization lines, which make up In part the duties of tho Governor. To properly organize tho many branches of the Stato Gov ernment Is a Job requiring experience In organization work. I am, convinced that tiio voters of the State are more interested in tho platforms that the candidates 6tand for than In the can- the Legislature In every way possible to bring about tho lowering of our ta os. As a farmer I know what the burden of taxation Is to the farmer and buslnes- Inan and home owner, nnd every effort must be tunde to re duce taxation. The time has come when n halt must be called In Increasing our State debt, and every effort to reduce it must be made. The obligations of debt are made by the State Leglsla turo and not by the Governor, but If I am elected I will earnestly Insist that State expenditures be kept with in the revenue so that our debt will not be Increased In the next Admin istration. Every effort must bo made to reduce tho Slate debt nnd If I am elected the veto power will bo used to the limit to keep the appropriations within th revenue of tfca Stitla, If li to necciMry to Uo to. I m heartily In favor of th rm traction of a highway system whfril will closely tie tnircther oar peoni In all sections nf the State. A I matter of fact. Kenmcklans do liol know each other as they should and wo hnve threo distinct sections In our Commonwealth. Jinny of our problenii would be solved If the three section I of the Stnto were linked together bv good roads, so that our people could really know each other nnd work gcther for the common good. I mn Informed by expert men who lin c studied this question that this plan can ho carried out without Increased taxation on existing property. Good roads nnd good schools go to gether and every citizen will agree that everything possible should ha dono for the education of our chil dren. I would like to see our public schools the equal nf those Cf any Stato In the Union nnd I will work tn that end. I nm ulso of the opinion thnt every encouragement possible should bo given to our State Univer sity nnd that It bo placed on a plane equal to the Unherslty nf any other State. If I nm elected Governor I will stay on the Job anil give the State a business administration, nnd the best that Is within me. If elected Governor, I will call lo my nld some of tho loading buln"fs men In different lines and seek tn r counsel and support In solving tin many dlfMcult problems which con front our people. No man can snlvo theso problems nlnne, and the can didate who promises to do so Is the worst type of a demagogue seeking votes. If elected, I promise to tin f'te "very host I can with the counsel st'ul advice of leading men nnd women of our State to solve our bus'nesH diffi culties for the best Interests of tho Commonwealth. I enter this race free from any political promises nnd absolutely free from nny help or promise of help n anyway from anv business firm or corporation nnywhere.

Under our present system of elections we have an election In Kentucky evtry year. Much money could be saved to the tax-payers In registrations and elections and the people relieved of much worry If we consolidated our elections. I fator any plan which will btlng about this result. I have the highest regard for the dis tinguished gentleman who has announced as a candidate for Governor and for those whose announcements I am In formed will soon be foi incoming. .No act or utterance of mine will mar the campaign Wo ' vo had entirely too much strife within -Jr own party In the past and I am hopeful that the campaign will be settled upon the merits of tne candidates themselves and thflr Issues, so tnat when the decision Is made we will go Into the final election with a united Democratic I'urty. I am inform ed by many active Democrats In all parts of the State that If I am nominated we tun expect to poll the full Mte of the Party, and after months of careful survey and Investigation I um vonvlnced that If nominated I can build up an organization which will carry our Tarty to success in the final election bvond any question. 1 am absolutely timers In my desire to serve Kentucky, tor four years In the House of ltepresentatlves In Kentucky, tot four yeais In the State Senate, una toi fourteen years In the Congiess of the United States I hae represented a great and a patriotic people, In the last two elections 1 have not had opposition from the Republican I'urty. The people of the Seventh Congressional District would not have given me this service if I had neglected the business entrusted to me. I have faithfully tried to serve them, and If elected Governor my ambition will be to render a full Measure of service. I served In Congress under the leader ship of that great I'resluent, Woodrow Wilson, and always gavo him and hli policies loyul support. When my l'aity called me to manage the State Campaign In 11116 for President Wilson I accepted the responsibility, and we carried the State by an overwhelming majority. Al though a man of moderate means I paid the deficit of that campaign amounting to a good many thousands of dollars and have never regretted the expenditure. In 1920 the National Democratic Commit tee called me to New Vork to tak charge of the organization work there, and for months 1 labored day and night for Tarty success. We knew that condi tions were such that we could not wlc but we fought as best we could to ih last ditch. 1 mention these personal mat ters to show that 1 have tried to give something In return for the favori which my Tarty has shown to me. It Is well known that farm lands and real estate In tho cities are bearlm heavy burdens of taxation. If 1 am elect ed Governor, 1 will make a full Investiga tion of the tuxes being paid by all class es of property and If it Is found thui certain clusfces of property are escapini their share of taxes, then I will certain!) recommend legislation to remedy this de fect In our taxing s)stem. Uecent political developments demon strate that there Is u splendid opportu nity under proper leadership to brini eastern Kentucky and the largest city ti our Commonwealth back Into the Demo cratic fold If elected Governor, I wll make every effort to give such a coot administration and to work In harmoni with the Democrats from tho sections oc our State mentioned above, that then will be no doubt about the outcome it future elections. No doubt other Issues will arise durlni the campaign and so far as I am con, cerned they will be openly and frankij met. I submit u.y candidacy tojUthi democracy of the State with the' hopi that It will prove acceptable. t turned to her homo In Pinevllle.
