More Voting Precincts. At the regular term of Pulaski County Court held last Monday week, Judge R.C. Tartar appointed B.L. Waddle, J.N. Mayfield and Joe Lewis as a committee to revise and reapportion the voting precincts of the county. This is made necessary, Judge Tartar says, because of the heavy vote anticipated this fall in the general election. This will be the first time the women of the state have voted in a general election. The people of the various precincts should be consulted in this matter and the voting places made as convenient as possible to the greatest number. No politics should enter into the duties to be performed by these men. Lots of times precincts are changed to be made stronger Republican or Democratic.

Waddle Wins Chairmanship of Pulaski County Committee at Louisville Meeting. The contest from Pulaski County over the control of the County Committee was decided in Louisville last Thursday, the 25th, by the Republican State Central Committee. After hearing all the speeches, affidavits, witnesses and etc., the party authorities decided that the Committee headed by Mr. B.L. waddle was the legally elected committee of Pulaski County and entitled to all rights and benefits thereof. There was much oratory in evidence, much bitterness displayed between the contestants and the charge and counter charge of steam roller methods. It is said that considerable outside influence was brought to bear on members of the committee. The case for Mr. Waddle and his committee was presented by W. Boyd Morrow and H.C. Kennedy. Judge Denton represented Mr. J.R. Cook, who was opposing Mr. Waddle for the honor of presiding over the Executive Committee of Pulaski County for the next four years. The whole question seemed to be whether or not the mass convention held in Somerset on February 28th was legally called. Mr. Waddle and his friends claimed that it was not legally called and proceeded t hold mass conventions in all precincts of the county on March 20th. A number of the state Committee wanted to let the matter be fought out again with precinct conventions but those opposing this were in the majority. Mr. Waddle will now preside over his County Committee and becomes the A.T. Hert of Pulaski County. He is the brother in law of Governor Morrow. It is said by those suffered defeat that the contest was settled before they arrived and they were not given a fair hearing by the Committee. They claim the steam roller was working fine. Anyhow, we Democrats are enjoying the fuss and will watch further developments with interest – go to it gentlemen.

At Parker’s Mill. The Danville Messenger under a Somerset date line of a recent issue says: Gov. Edwin P. Morrow, Mrs. Morrow, Edwina and Charley Bob will return to Pulaski for their vacation about the second week in July. The Governor has engaged lodging with the Parker Sisters at Parkers Mill, a few miles to the Southeast of Somerset. Parkers Mill has no equal as a place for both mind and body. Having been a favored spot for the Morrow family for generations, no one will be surprised that Gov. Morrow comes back for his vacation, preferring it to the many more fashionable and pretentious summering places where he and his family would have been welcomed. The owners of the place issue no advertisements and receive only a few guests at one time, who are mostly old friends of the family, as are the Morrows. A clear, cool stream affords a small clear lake for boating, fishing and bathing; a small cataract at the old dam by a rustic bridge; a real old water mill reflected in the stream farther on, all shut away from the outside by great hills and deep, cool woodland, making the place, indeed, one to attract the many.
