The Amuzu Man Returns from Corbin. Otto Brown, owner and of the Amuzn Theatre at manager Middles- boro, returned .home .after a two- Congressinnn Caleb Powers was in his headquarters here Saturday preparatory to his going into Clay and Leslie counties on a campaign- ing tour. When his attention was cailed to an article from Harlan county in the Louisville Herald, claiming that Harlan county was overwhelmingly Bull Moose, Mr. Powers replied, "I want to say to my friends over the district and state that they need not pay any attention to the reports sent out by my enemies. If the public had paid any attention .to them I was badly beaten before, and yet when the vote was counted the whole country was surprised at the majority I received. It will be the same way tliis time. "To a packed court house, of voters at Harlan I asked ..all those who wanted to permanently leave the Republican party and join the third party to raise their hand, and not a man in that court house full of people raised his hand. I will easily get 85% of the Roosevelt vote in Harlan county, and I am sure that this is true of nearly all the counties in the district. "While Col. Roosevelt has a host of friends in the district, they are at the same time my friends and will vote for me. It is not the intention of one out of 500 of those in the district who vote for Roosevelt to permanently leave the Republican party and on the 5th of November they will cast their votes in such a way as to still remain Republicans. All this will be made clear before election day." Moss Coal Com- pany Incorporated. The'Moss Coal Company was or- ganized here last week with capital stock. Ray Moss, J. G.

KIRK. SO SAY WE, ALtioF US. LTexingfon Leader) 1HE Louisville-Evening Post offers a suggestion wluch the Leader gladly indorses. It is that all parties unite in supporting Circuit Judge A. J. Kirk for the vacancy on the Court of Appeals bench caused by the resignation of Judge E. C. O'Rear which was filled tempo- rarily by the appointment of Mr. Robert H. Winn by Governor Willson. Judge Kirk is an ideal selection and is sure of nomination and election, no matter what happens in Kentucky or the Nation, but his indorsement by all parties would have a good effect. The Post says on this subject: "The retirement of all other candidates makes certain the nomination by the Republican party of Judge Andrew J. Kirk, of Johnson county, for the vacancy upon the Kentucky Court of Appeals to be caused by the retirement of Judge R. H. Winn in November. Mr. Kirk is now a Circuit Judge, and one of the best in Kentucky. The district is so overwhelmingly Republi- can that even in this year of certain Republican disaster the Republican nominee should win easily. Moreover, Jadge Kirk is of the material out' of which Appellate Judges should be made. The Democratic party will do a graceful act in not con- testing the election, and Wilson, Taft and Roosevelt men can all unite in the promotion of this Judge." READ ABOUT THIS BARGAIN, Ralston, Ky.
