Part of The Adair County news.

r I r daix Vounty G ttlts ht Published Every BY Wednesday THE Adair county News o INCORPORATED CHAN N Editor HARRIS Democralc newspaper devoted to the interests of the city of Columbia and the people of Adair and adjacent counties Entered at the Columbia Postoffice class mail matter ILS second WEB AUGUST 241904 Democratic Ticket For President ALTON B PARKER New York For VicePresident HENRY G DAVIS West Virginia ANNOUNCEIIENTS For Circuit Judge We are authorized to announce that lion I II TIIURMAN of Washington county is a candi date for Circuit Judge in the district comprising the counties of Green Taylor Marion and Washington subject to the action of the Democratic party A majority of the Chairmen eleven in number of the Eleventh Congressional district met at Middlesboro last week disobeyed an injunction issued by Circuit Judge Cook Faulkner and gave a certificate of nomination for Congress to Dr W Godfrey Hun ter The Edwards forces claim that the action of the eleven committeemen is nothing more nor less than robbery as the cer tifiedreturns sent in by all the county clerks in the district clar ly show that Edwards received a majority of 1146 votes Legal proceedings were to come before Judge Faulkner at Barbourville Tuesday at which yesterday time Edwards followers hoped to have the action of the majority of the committee annuled The situation is not at all satisfactory and at this writing there is no telling which of the two Ed wards or Hunter will get his name under the log cabin The committeemen who gave the cer tificate to Hunter say that he re ceived 191 majority on the face of the returns It is no fight of ours and we give the situation as we understand it The Re publican party in this district is strong enough to purge itself from corrupt methods if there is really and truly a desire but whether this is the case or not or whether the emoluments of office are regardless of methods the actuating motives we are un able to determine It seems to us that present political tenden cies are away from the golden rule Elsewhere in this issue ap pears an interview of Mr Yar berry and also a statement made to the Louisville Post from a Mid dlesboro man giving the other side and from them we infer that not all the sinners are on one side nor all the political saints on the other It seems to be a mixedaffair as well as an unfortunate one for the political party that has fought for Civil Liberty in the past and whose orators have orated over Democratic mistakes It is their sin their mistake and their responsibility MR YARBERRY INTERJIEWED oddsI no s bYdong knowAll this howl about fraud in Iiarlan county is a mere subterfuge to hide the doings at Bennetts Fork and Yellow hull It is reported that the ballot boxes for both of these precincts were fixed at the Winona Club rooms in Middlesboro Now the question is are the Republi cans of the Eleventh district going to submit We think not It is said Hunt er spent 25000 in the primary and I am satisfied it will cost him 25000 more before he reaches Congress Iam inclined to think some of these election fixers will board at the expense of the State in the near future J

to a majority for Hunter of 191 will be shown to the world At Bennetts Fork where Belknap got 29 votes and Beckham 7 Hunter is given 605 majority In the Yellow Dill precinct one of the officers of election a Hunter man said after the polls clos ed I had an uphill fight Wccouldnt get the vote out but I got 22 of the 26 votes for Hunter The committee re ports 478 for Hunter and 4 for Edwards By what peculiar legerdomain this can be done an ankious public would like to A News reporter interviewed Mr MR Yarberrycommittfe man from this county concerning the counting of the official returns of the vote of their pri mary and the issuing of the cer tificate of nomination to Dr Hunter in Middlesbro last Wed nesday Mr Yarberry states I was warned at Junction City while on my way to London that a Hunter man would be in dan ger in that town and was advised not to stop there In the face of these facts and conditions I ar rived there at 2 a m Tuesday Before I left my bed chamber in the Catching Hotel that morn ing I was notified that we had better act right that day or suf fer the consequences After breakfast while on the street I was notified that a rope awaited me if Edwards failed to get the certificate Other threats were also made and I was advised to get out of town on first opportu nity I caught a train in the di rection of Louisville went to Pittsburg where I passed under an assumed name I was there notified by wire by a personal friend not to be seen while pass ing through London I took his advice and locked myself in the colored peoples coach while go ing through that town In Bell county the County Chairman refused to certify un tilcomplete returns were in from all the precincts there being 3 or 4 unreported Edwards secured a mandamus and compelled him certify which gave Edwards majority of 330 This mandamus was disolved by the Court of Appeals and the complete returns showed Hunter a majority of 792 In Harlan county the ballots were stolen from a strong Hunter precinct supposed to have been don by a party who since committesuicide The voters of that pre cinct registered each voter the old way which gave Hunter majority of 80 In this precinctwo of the officers were for Hun ter and two for Edwards and they certified to the returns in the regular way We counted this majority as it was cast In Letcher county Edwards claimed 120 majority while the official re turns gave Hunter 16 majority the Chairman of the county be ing present and certifying to its correctness There were various claims of fraud by both sides but no technical errors were con sidered We did not investigate any claims of fraud as our duty was simply ministerial merely to canvass the complete returns and issue a certificate of nomination to the party who hadreceived the most votes on the face of the official returns I submit the counties with their respective majorities and have no appologyto offer for the discharge of my duty to anyone Popt r Ot Pike Campbell Gee
