The Somerset Journal-The Oldest Democratic Newspaper in the Mountains of Kentucky
Regular Landslide For
Republican National Ticket All Over The Country. New
York, Nov. 3 - The Republican landslide continued to roll along in even
greater proportions today as belated election returns come in from the West.
Besides electing Harding it was assured that Republicans would increase their
margin in both Houses of Congress, and in the Senate in particular would
change their precarious control by one to a substantial working majority.
Congressional returns from many states were slow as were indeed the returns
on the vote for President. But on the basis of actual returns at hand and
indications form partial returns coming in, it seemed that Harding would have
not less than 330 votes in the electoral college, with a probability of more
than 350, while all that could be counted in the Cox column were the 127
votes from the solid South. New York, Nov. 3 - One of the most sweeping
Republican victories in party history today stood recorded for Senator Warren
G. Harding for President and a Republican Congress. Tremendous and
unparalleled Republican pluralities, beginning with the first count of
ballots in Tuesday's election, continued mounting. Defeat in their fight
both for the Presidency and Congress was conceded early by Democratic
national leaders on the basis of the crushing Republican vote and despite the
absence, even early today, of final and official figures. With the
Presidency and Congress went loss to the Democrats of Governors, State
Legislatures and other State and local candidates. The break even threatened
to extend into the border states hitherto "Solid South," with Republican
gains in some Southern States larger than any since the Civil War. In the
absence of final figures, the swelling tide of huge pluralities, early today
gave him assurance of 330 votes in the electoral college, as against 127 for
Governor Cox, with 75 doubtful, inclusive of States where the Republican tide
was running strong. The unofficial results presaged a larger majority in the
electoral college for Senator Harding and his running mate, Governor Coolidge
of Massachusetts, than any since 1888, except alone the vote of 435 for
President Wilson in 1912, during the Republican 'Split."
"In The Spirit of America, I Accept Decision" - Cox. Dayton, O., Nov. 3 -
Governor Cox, the defeated Presidential candidate, today wired his
congratulations to Senator Harding, the President-elect, pledging support "as
a citizen to the executive authority in whatever emergency might arise." His
message, the first act of the defeated candidate today, read: "In the spirit
of America, I accept the decision of the majority, tender as the defeated
candidate my congratulations and pledge as a citizen my support to the
executive authority in whatever emergency might arise."
Old Kentucky Gives Democratic Majority and Returns Beckham To Senate.
Kentucky, which went 40,000 Republican last year, was re-captured in a
decisive manner by the Democrats in Tuesday's election. Governor Cox carried
the State over Senator Harding, President-Elect, by something over 15,000.
Senator J.C.W. Beckham was re-elected to the United States Senate by a
decisive majority, which will not fall under 10,000. Despite the
confirmation of these assertions by Associated Press and Democratic
Headquarters returns, the Republicans are declining to concede the State. In
this they are actuated by the belief that a mountain majority far in excess
of what they had hoped to expect may make the Senatorial race doubtful.
Returns from remote Republican sections the Democrats claim, are being
delayed so that they can be padded if there appears any chance to take the
State. Reports of election irregularities are coming into headquarters, and
Federal agents have been put on the job at once by the United States District
Attorney at Covington, Thomas D. Slattery. With most of the Democratic
counties reported, Governor Cox's lead is the State is over 24,000. The
Senatorial race, with more counties out, gives Senator Beckham a lead of
28,000. Both leads will be cut down as the additional counties report their
race. At the Democratic State Headquarters this morning returns had been
tabulated from all of the counties in the State except six in the Tenth and
seven in the Eleventh. If the Republicans carry these missing counties by
double the Hughes majorities in 1916, they will fall between 10,000 and
12,000 shy of catching Senator Beckham and about 20,000 below Governor Cox's
total. The fact that Kentucky Democrats had accomplished an overturn of
60,000 votes in this campaign was regarded as a remarkable accomplishment in
the face of the general Republican ground swell over the country. Kentucky's
place in the electoral college was recognized by the following telegram sent
to Chairman J.L. Grayot by George White, Democrats National Chairman:
"Congratulations from a loser to a winner."
Senator Harding Carries Pulaski County By 3,600 Majority. Normal Vote Out.
Senator Warren G. Harding carried Pulaski County by 3,628 majority over
Governor Cox. This is about the normal Republican majority doubled by the
vote of the women. Senator Harding received 7,371 votes and Governor Cox
received 3,743. The Democrats voted at about their usual strength. IT would
seem from reports that more of the Republican women voted than the Democratic
women. Ernst and Beckham ran slightly behind the head of the ticket. The
Democrats carried the City of Somerset by four votes, which is very
gratifying to the party. The Republicans showed a majority of about 300 on
registration. This shows that many Republicans in Somerset voted the
Democratic ticket. Ferguson also gave a nice Democratic majority as did
Bourbon, Good Hope, Bent, Simpson and Bronston. The Democrats are to be
congratulated for their splendid work in these precincts. In Somerset the
excellent work done by local Democrats told in the result. There were a
dozen or more workers busy all day and nearly every voter went to the polls.
>From headquarters a vigorous campaign was carried on throughout the entire
county. Secretary Cliff Day, Chairman Ferrell, Treasurer J.L. Waddle and
others spent a great deal of their time direction the work. The boys at the
shops worked hard and the large Democratic vote cast by the railroad
employees showed their activity. The women of the county also deserve credit
for the excellent work they did. Mrs. Woodson May was Chairman of the
Women's Division. In another part of the paper the Journal gives the vote
in the county by precincts.
Tennessee Vote Great Surprise. A real surprise in the Presidential election
in the South has been furnished in Tennessee and Louisiana. Returns from
sixty-one of the ninety-five counties in Tennessee and newspaper estimates
for the remainder of the counties give Harding a lead of 268 votes, and
Republican State leaders expressed hope of breaking the "Solid South" for the
first time since reconstruction days. Democratic leaders, however, said they
were confident that later returns would give Tennessee's electoral vote to
Governor Cox and keep the South in the Democratic column. Election of a
Republican Governor in Tennessee appears probable, returns at noon showing
Alf Taylor, Republican nominee, leading Governor Roberts, Democrat, by
Election Returns. The Journal office was headquarters Tuesday night for the
people of Somerset to get the election returns. Fully 1,000 gathered in
front of the building to hear the news. Bulletins were received every few
minutes giving news from all sections of the country. Many citizens, both
Democrats and Republicans, have expressed their appreciation to us for this
New School Board Is Elected. Only Two of Old Members Come Out Victorious
Tuesday. There was more interest in the school board election Tuesday than
in the presidential election. The fight developed an unusual interest and a
warm contest was waged. Only two members of the old board came out
victorious, T.E. Jasper and A.E. Barnes. The new members are James Denton,
W.A. Moore, Mrs. Woodson McGee may, and Mrs. Lottie Propst. The old board
made a most creditable race in the precincts "up town," carrying every ward.
They met their waterloo in No. 7 at the depot and at Saline, an outlying
precinct. For the first time politics was injected into the race which fact
was deeply regretted by all friends of the city schools. The new ticket had
a splendid organization and workers in every precinct. They made their fight
on the tax issue. The new board is composed of splendid citizens and we
believe they will make good. If they will continue the progressive policy o
the old board they will give general satisfaction. The schools of Somerset
are its biggest asset and nothing should be done that will cripple and retard
their growth. Let everybody get behind the new members and co-operate with
them. The vote of each candidate is given in a table printed in this issue
of the Journal.
Higgins - Craig. Mr. George Higgins and Miss Blanche Craig, both of
Somerset, eloped to Chattanooga, Tenn., Wednesday morning and were married

and Mrs. J.B. Craig and is one of Somerset's most beautiful and popular young
girls. She is quite a favorite among the younger set of the city. Mr.
Higgins is the son of W.E. Higgins, Train Master of the Southern Railway, and
holds a position with the railroad company at this place.
Caldwell - Sallee. The Stanford Interior Journal had the following article
that will be read with interest by Somerset people: Mr. Frederick Burns
Caldwell and Miss Lelia Cook Sallee were married Tuesday afternoon at 2:30 by
Rev. P.L. Bruce at the parsonage in East Main St. The groom is the son of
W.T. Caldwell, superintendent of the Southern Railway, and is a Centre
College man. He and his family lived in Danville for a number of years. Mr.
Caldwell is a prosperous business man, being a member of the Tennessee Fuel
Exchange, coal brokers. His bride is the youngest daughter of Mr. and Mrs.
J.W. Sallee, of Harrodsburg, and is a charming young woman - as pretty as she
is popular. She is a sister of Mrs. Robert Benton Woods of this city. Mr.
Caldwell and Mrs. Caldwell first got acquainted in England, when they were
both members of the Barrow unit, hence the courtship is tinged with some
little romance. After a short trip to New Orleans they will be at home at
Oakdale, Tenn., where Mr. Caldwell's business is located.

Clyde Shuttles, Well Known in Somerset, Gets Five Years in the Penitentiary.
The Danville Messenger had the following that will be read with interest by
Somerset people: Clyde Shuttles, well known young man of this city, was
sentenced to serve five years in the State penitentiary today by a jury in
the special term of the Boyle Circuit Court. The trial lasted for several
days and much testimony as heard on both sides. The defendant was charged
with receiving stolen property and the case arose out of the big wholesale
robbing of freight cars in Danville. Shuttles claimed that he purchased the
stolen cigarettes from Will Gregory, of Lexington, but could not located him
now. According to the defendant, he paid Gregory $1,2000 on two occasions
for cigarettes and at one time he paid $750 to the same party. The
Commonwealth's testimony showed that the cigarettes were those taken fro the
cars, it is said. The jury was out only five minutes and brought in a
verdict of guilty and placed the punishment at five years n the penitentiary.
It is said that the jury unanimously agreed on the verdict. The defendant,
who has been out on bond, was taken to jail. This makes the fifth conviction
in connection with the railroad robberies. Howard Gordon was sentenced to
three years in the penitentiary; Morris Pritchett, two years; H.C. Ellison,
one year, and Owen Gooch, two years. The special term of court adjourned
this afternoon after dismissing the jurymen. Another called term of the
Circuit Court will be convened December 13, for the purpose of hearing the
Cecil Will case again. Other railroad robbing cases will come up at the next
regular term of court in January.
Shot In Back. Ed Adams, a brother of Jas. Adams, of the Journal force, was
shot in the back by Walter Holt as he was driving through Norwood last Sunday
afternoon. Adams was in a car with three other men and as they drove around
a crowd of boys and men, who had congregated in the road, a shot was fired
which went through the back of the car and entered young Adams in the back.
His companions hurried to the hospital with him where it was found the bullet
had penetrated his back just to the left of the right shoulder blade. The
bullet was removed. Officers went to Norwood and arrested Mr. Holt, who
confessed the shooting. He was placed in jail to await the action of the
grand jury now in session.
Stabbed With Knife. Stella Cato, a colored woman living at Tateville, Ky.,
stabbed a fifteen year old girl by the name of Ross, also of color, with a
knife Sunday afternoon. The Ross girl died within a short time. The knife
penetrated the heart. The cutting followed a quarrel between the parties.
The Cato woman came to Somerset and gave herself up to the authorities and
was placed in jail.
To Ohio. Rev. W.E. Hunter will leave tomorrow for Sandusky, Ohio, where he
will assist in an eight day protracted meeting. Before returning home he
will attend the State General Association of Baptists at Owensboro, Ky.
M.B. Adams, President of Georgetown College, will fill the pulpit at the
First Baptist Church Sunday morning and evening, and E.R. Stewart the
Circuit Court. Court adjourned last Monday until Wednesday in order that the
juries and witnesses might go home and vote. The grand jury resumed work on
Wednesday morning. There has not been a great deal accomplished in court
this week. Chas. Mize, charged with killing Lettie Kirby, was fined $100 and
given 150 days in jail. Mize was riding along the road and fired his pistol
into a house not knowing anyone was in it and killed the young girl. The
case against Scott and John Hansford for killing two McKinneys last year was
called Thursday morning. The jury was summoned from the western part of the
county and yesterday was taken up in selecting twelve men to try the case.
The grand jury, it is said, is doing fine work and will return quite a number
of indictments for liquor selling. They are making a special investigation
of the illegal sale of liquor in Somerset and Pulaski County.
The Flat Lick School Fair was well attended despite the fact that a big sale
was going on in the same neighborhood. Prof. Hill, Supt. City Schools, Mr.
W.R. Buckler, State Leader of Junior Clubs, and Leonard E. Meece, were the
principal speakers who entertained the crowd while the judges were awarding
the prizes. A bountiful basket dinner was served at noon by the good women
of the neighborhood which added wonderfully to the success of the day. The
following is list of winners in the grand champion rings: Corn - Theodore
Stewart of Grundy School; Potatoes - Lowell Eaton of Flat Lick; Sweet
Potatoes - Laura Daniel of Flat Lick; Beets - Virl Herrin of Shopville;
Cushaw - Alma Herrin of Shopville; Pumpkin - Paul Brinkley of Flat Lick;
Turnips - Eva Cox of Grundy; Tobacco - Lowell Eaton of Flat Lick; Wheat -
Evelyn Cox of Grundy; Apples - Theodore Stewart of Grundy; Pear Preserves -
Alleen Callahan of Grundy; Oats - Cora Whitis of Shopville; Peach Preserves -
Alma Herrin of Shopville; Biscuits - Alma Herrin of Shopville; Corn Bread -
Burl Herrin of Shopville; Cake - Alma Herrin of Shopville; Apple Pie - Alleen
Callahan of Grundy; Dried Apple - Alleen Callahan of Grundy; Molasses -
Jewell Bobbitt of Flat Lick. The Shopville and Grundy schools took seven
grand champions each and Flat Lick took five. This makes a tie between
Grundy and Shopville schools for the beautiful flag that the business men of
Somerset had bought. It was moved by the teacher of Grundy school, Mr.
Herrin, that Shopville keep the flag half the time and Grundy the other half
until next fall when it should be contested for at another school fair.
