The Somerset Journal-The Oldest Democratic Newspaper in the Mountains of Kentucky
The Republicans of Pulaski
Are Having Their Troubles As Usual. Split Widens.
All is not serene in the Republican camp in Pulaski County. There seems to
be considerable trouble and dissension over the handling of the campaign and
it all is throwing a damper on the Republican voters of the county. The sole
object seems to be to get the advantage in the county and district races next
year. The campaign for the national ticket is in the hands of County
Chairman R.C. Tartar, W.M. Morrow, H.C. Kennedy, candidate for Circuit Judge,
R.B. Waddle, M.L. Jarvis and others. This crowd has been declared the
regular Republican organization in the county by the State Committee. They
are making all the dates for speakings in the county. On October 25th they
have billed Charley Finely, Congressman J.M. Robsion and Mrs. Christine
Bradley South to speak here. Mr. Finley will speak at 11 o'clock in the
morning and Congressman Robsion and Mrs. South at 1 o'clock. We also note
that bills are out announcing that Judge B.J. Bethurum and W.N. Flippin will
speak in Somerset at 1 p.m. same day at courthouse. These bills are not
signed by the Republican Campaign Committee. Just how all these speakers are
to perform on that day we do not know and will await the outcome with
interest. Friends of Judge Bethurum claim that he announced his speaking
first and that the other speakers were billed to keep him from speaking. Oh
the fun boys, we are going to have. Not to be outdone by the regular
organization the opposing faction are in charge of the Harding and Coolidge
Clubs in the county and they are busy perfecting these organizations. A big
sign hangs out from the office of J.R. Cook which says, "Harding and Coolidge
Club." Just a few feet away there is another sign which hangs form the
office of W.B. Morrow which reads "Republican Headquarters." The two are
like oil and water - they won't mix. The race for Circuit Judge seems to be
uppermost in the minds of the politicians. Judge Kennedy has already
announced, though the election is nearly a year off. He has sent out letters
all over the district asking the support of the voters. Judge Bethurum, the
present Judge, has not announced yet but this friends say that he will make
the proper announcement after the November election. They say he does not
desire to get this race mixed with the national race. At the proper time, it
is said, he will start a vigorous campaign for re-election.
Senator Harding Will Pass Through Somerset Next Thursday Speaks At Danville,
Ky. Senator Warren G. Harding, Republican candidate for President, will pass
through Somerset next Thursday, October 14, about noon. He will not stop
here but will make a short speech at Danville at 1:30. Senator Harding will
be en route to Chattanooga, Tenn., to Louisville, where he will speak
Thursday night. He will come through on a special train.
Another Raid. Officers Bash, Winfrey and West made another raid on Buck
Creek just above Dykes and arrested Cyrus Bradley. A copper kettle and other
paraphernalia was destroyed. Mr. Bradley, when brought before U.S.
Commissioner Wesley declared that he was fixing to make molasses. He was
Supporting Harding. In Cincinnati, St. Louis, New York and other cities
where there is a large German population, mass meetings are being held and
the Germans are supporting Mr. Harding almost to a man. They are against the
Democratic party because the United States declared war on their fatherland
and helped to defeat them.
First To Register. Mrs. Owen Goodloe was the first woman to register in
Somerset, it is said. She was up bright and early and was at the polls when
opened by the election officers. Mrs. Goodloe is a good Democrat and will
vote for Cox and Roosevelt and Senator Beckham.
Ware - Fritts. A wedding of much interest to Somerset people was that of
Miss Daisy Lynn Ware, of this city, and Mr. Fred Fritts, of Phillipburg,
N.J., which was solemnized on September 29th in Columbus, Ohio, by Rev. J.
Wesley Hatcher of the Christian Church. Mrs. Fritts is the daughter of Mr.
and Mrs. C.P. Ware of this city and is one of our most charming young girls.
She taught for a number of years in the city schools and later held several
responsible positions in Arizona where she met her husband. She was a host
of friends here who wish her much happiness. Mr. Fritts holds a very
responsible position with the Ingersol Rands Machine Co., of New York, and is
stationed for a few weeks at Columbus, after which Mr. and Mrs. Fritts will
go to their home in New Jersey.
Griffith - Woodall. Miss Nan Griffith and Mr. Clarence Woodall of Somerset
were very quietly married Sunday evening at 6 o'clock at the home of the
bride's sister, Mr. and Mrs. Thos. A. Christman, of Walnut Hills, Harriman,
Tenn., Thos. A. Christman performing the ceremony. Only a few of the
immediate family were present. The couple were attended by Miss Grace
Hansford, of Somerset, and Mrs. Joe Christman of Harriman. The bride and her
attendant were very charmingly attired in gowns of navy blue tricolette with
corsage bouquets of white cosmos. The house was tastefully decorated in
Autumn leaves and golden rod and cosmos. Mr. and Mrs. Woodall left on the
evening train for a short wedding trip and will be at home in Somerset after
Sad Death. Bright Little Son of Mr. and Mrs. LaMont Hankla Passes Away.
(Danville Advocate). The host of friends in Danville of Mr. and Mrs. LaMont
Hankla were deeply grieved this morning to learn of the death of their little
fourteen-months old son, William LaMont, at the home of Mrs. William Surber
in Junction City at 7 o'clock. The immediate cause of the child's death was
due to an attack of meningitis, according to the diagnosis of attending
physicians. Monday morning the child fell from a low chair in the dining
room and although not even a bruise was shown on its head, it never regained
consciousness and it was thought that the child suffered concussion of the
brain. However, it now appears that it may have been stricken with a sudden
attack of meningitis which caused it to fall. Mr. and Mrs. Hankla in this
dark hour of sorrow have the sincere sympathy of the people of this
community. After brief funeral services at the home of Mrs. Surber in
Junction City tomorrow afternoon at 2 o'clock, the remains will be brought to
Danville for interment in beautiful Bellevue cemetery. Until a few days ago
Mr. and Mrs. Hankla were residents of Danville having rooms in the Clark
Apartment on Fourth St. Mr. Hankla is chief clerk of Supt. J.G. Clements of
the Southern Railway System and went to Somerset the first day of October
with the removal of Mr. Clements office to that place. In the meantime Mrs.
Hankla and little son were guests of Mrs. Surber of Junction City.
Silly Asses. The editors of the Danville Advocate are making silly asses out
of themselves by publishing a lot of rot that is hurting no one but
themselves and their little city. Gentlemen, be sports.
Will Open Hotel. The building formerly occupied by S.A. Owens at the depot
has been rented and is being remodeled for a hotel and apartment house. It
will be ready in a month.
Installing Fountain. The store of Baldwin & Benelli has been closed for
several days on account of the installation of a new soda fountain which is a
beauty. They are now open for business.
Two Big Raids Made In Adjoining Counties, Big Copper Still is Destroyed. Two
big moonshine raids were made in the past week by United States Marshals
Chas. Winfrey, J.E. Bash, Joe Kavanaugh, and Silas West. The first raid was
made in Laurel County, just over the Pulaski line, and the officers destroyed
the largest still that has been found in this section of the state. Over
1,000 gallons of beer was thrown out and a 120 gallon copper still was cut
up. Scott Burdine, Oscar Arthur, John Whittaker and John McQueen were
arrested. They were brought to Somerset and Burdine, Arthur and McQueen
confessed their guilt before Commissioner Wesley. Whittaker denied being
connected in any way with the operation of the still. All were held over on
$1,000. The officers state that the still was one of the most complete they
have ever seen. The second raid was made near Greenwood, in McCreary County,
and the offices destroyed a large still and arrested Arthur Denny and Dilbert
Wilson. They are charged with operating it. On the same trip, Gainsey Keith
was arrested charged with the same offense. All were brought here and taken
before Commissioner Wesley. The officers are determined to break this
business up and they are going to continue their search in the county until
all the stills are destroyed. Additional men will be put on the job.
Fine Corn. Thos. West, who lives just out of Somerset, has on exhibition in
the First National Bank several ears of corn grown on his place. They are
the best specimens that have been seen this year.
Approach Soon Ready. Mr. Charles Hamilton, who is in charge of the work of
building the approach to the Pitman Creek Bridge, says that he will have the
work finished within three weeks and that he hopes to have it ready for
travel before that time. The road leading to the bridge is also being
worked. This will be a great convenience to the people of Burnside.
New Store To Open. V.P. Smith has rented the McBeath store room, just above
the Journal Office, to the Somerset Salvage Co., who will put on sale a large
line of new and reclaimed army goods, including clothing, blankets, shoes,
overcoats, etc. Watch the Journal for announcement of the opening.
Colored Club is Organized. The colored voters of the city met Monday night
and organized a Harding and Coolidge Club. They will take a most active part
in the campaign for the Republican ticket.
Dan Lewis Here. Dan Lewis, who has been connected with the Southern Railway
as Chief Clerk to the Superintendent for a number of years, and who resigned
several months ago to go into business, is here acting Chief Clerk in the
absence of Mr. Hankla, who was called home on account of illness in his
family. Mr. Lewis has many friends in Somerset and they are glad to see him
and wish that he would move here with the rest of the bunch.
Republican Speaking. Major Jackson Morris spoke here last Saturday in the
interest of the Republican ticket but there was lack of enthusiasm and a
small crowd heard him. He was unable to get up any of that old time "pep"
that the Republicans usually have. He dwelt at length on the League of
Nations and made a feeble attempt to discredit that great document.
A Warning To My Customers. There are some going round telling that I have
quit business and that I will not pay my license. This is all false and just
to get you to take imitations instead of the real goods that I handle. I am
on my way to you as fast as I can come and will fill all mail orders
received. I am yours for business. J.A. Phillpott, The Watkins Man,
Somerset, Ky. Phone on Guffy Line.
