As Are The People So Will Be The Town The people of a town, and not the local conditions, make it what it is. Favorable and avablPConditions, environments and opportunities! are necessary prerequisites to the building up and making of the town, but if the people do not grasp these opportunities and possibilities, utilize and apply them, then the town only exists psycologically. So it is a matter altogether in the hands of the people who would build and raise it up. There should be no To obtain effective results there must be discord or dissension. and continued efforts. They must form them united selves into one mighty compact, a veritable piece of machinery perfectly oiled and fitted, with one aim only in view, and that to build up and maintain. If there is any part of this machinery crooked, worn or rusty, cut ifroutHf-there- js a "Knocker" ready to oppose, paralyze him with vour influenceland show him that he must keep apace or be eliminated. And there will always be "knockers." They are those who live for themselves alone, those who subsist upon an insatiate desire for self aggrandizement, greed and graft. When the machinery starts he can be heard to grate against the bearings and the cogs. Jfist pass hin up and let the progressive procession pass speedily on. Whitesburg is a great city in embryo, not destined to be so large, but nevertheless great. Willlt die in the shell or will it burstforth full grown and flaunting? Well, one interested may inquire: How shall we begin the good work of building this great city? A good way to begin is to observe the Golden Rule. To live and let live. Instead of meeting the prospecting stranger who would come and be one of us with a frown and scowl, receive him with a cordial greeting, a Tcindly grasp of the. hand, a bona-fid- e smile and a hearty welcome Place a reasonable price upon all property for sale or rent.

Black, of Barbourville, Knox statement announcing his candidacy for the Democratic nomination for Lieutenant Governor in the Primary Election, August 7, 1915. Democrats of Kentucky: Itecognizlns, in the fullest sense, your right to choose at the Primary Election to bo held in August, 1915, those whom you prefer to be the candidates of the party to be voted for at the general election in next November, I am a candidate, subject to your will tole said Primary Election, for the nomination for Lieutenant Governor on the Democratic ticket. I am induced, in a measure, to make this announcement by a desire of my own to serve the people of our splendid State in the capacity of Lieutenant Governor, and also, in a measure, by suggestions of a few individuals whose personal and political friendship is real and in whose judgment I have and ought to have confidence. My past fealty to the Democratic party may be accented by you, I confidently trust, as a sufficient guaranty that I shall, whether nominated or not, give to the ticket you may name- - and the principles for which our party stands, very faithful support, for that course has been my habit at all time3 since reaching legal age. If nominated and elected Lieutenant Governor, I promise you and the people of Kentucky to bring to the discharge of the duties of the office the very-be- st service of which I may be capable. Whether or not I am equipped to properly flischarge of those duties,- it is not for me to say. I submit that to your judgment and' decision. I believe in a just and wise economy in public as well as in private business, and cordially agree that no ons should be entwisted with responsible office who is not able and willing to perform his whole duty to the public whose interests he asks to be commissioned to serve. I believe those on whom the Constitution places the duty and responsibility of legislation for the people of the State ought to industriously employ the time the General Assembly may be in session, to needed lesislation, complete that as quickly as a proper regard for the best interests of the State will permit, anfl then adjourn, diligently avoiding every unnecessary expense tox ths people- -' I have no doubt that those who have to do in an official way with the rnifiey of tho community, or charged with the administration of public affairsAiughUto act In relation to such, according to that high standard which the mat prudent, careful, just and Intelligent exercise in the conduct of their ivate business.
