The Somerset Journal A Consolidation of the Somerset Times and The Somerset Journal A Democratic Paper Published Every Friday Cecil Williams, Editor and Proprietor Somerset, Ky., Friday, August 1, 1919.
It is now only two days until the election. During the past week the campaign in Pulaski County has taken on a very lively interest. There is no question but what the sentiment of this county is strongly in favor of Governor Black for the Democratic nomination for Governor. He should carry the county by at least 1,000 majority. His campaign workers thru the county report all precincts in good condition. The tide has turned to Governor Black during the past week and it now seems assured he will get a unanimous vote in this county. For a while Judge Carroll's friends made some progress but when the campaign issues were put up to the voters it did not take them long to decide which was the stronger candidate. Judge Black it is now conceded will be 25,000 votes stronger in November than his opponent. Governor Black will be able to meet his Republican opponent on the stump. Judge Carroll is no speaker and it is said that he has lost votes wherever he has spoken in this campaign. Governor Black is the stronger with the temperance forces of the state. This will add to his strength in the final race. He is the ideal candidate and the Democrats realize this fact and for that reason they are going to nominate him next Saturday. Let Pulaski do her duty and stand by a mountain man. If you want your taxes higher vote for Judge Carroll. If not vote for Governor Black. If you are a temperance advocate and want to see the prohibition laws enforced, vote for Governor Black. He will do it. When you go to the polls next Saturday don't forget that we have a home man running for the Democratic nomination for State Auditor. The vote of Pulaski county might nominate him. Look for the name of J.P.W. Brouse on the ballot. If Judge Carroll is elected Governor he will retain in office all the Stanley appointees. Haven't we had enough of those! Mt. Zion.
