cane oat of tbe washroom and looked 
at It also.

"Walt!" Connery seised the porter

He dismissed the negro and waited

The band fell back heavily, Inertly, 
and resumed Its former position and 
hung as wliltt- and lifeless a.s before. 
No resftoDSe to tbe apology came from 
behind the cwtafas; die mam. hi the 
berth had not roused. Cooiiery rnsiied

hand wiifti his rin^rers. It was cold I 
He seized the hand and felt it all

Aoulders jerked, and he drew back. 
Instinctively pressing his two clenched

the fonvard eno of the csr,, where he 
had Itft tba porter* 

"Loc^ the rear doer of thjp car," be 
commanded. "Then eeme back here." 

He gave the negro the ^eys, and 
himself waited to iwerent anyone 
from entering the car at his end. 
Looking through the glass of ttie door, 
he saw the young man Elaton standing 
in the vestibule of the car ne±t ahead. 
Connery hesitated ; then ttfe openeil 
the door and beckoned Eaton to him. 

"Win yoa fo flormrd. please," he 
requested, "and see' there isn't a 
doctor — " • 

"You mean the man with red hair 
in my car?" Eaton inquired. 

"Ibat^ the one." ^ 

Eaton started off without asking 
any questions. The porter, having 
locked the rear iloor of the, car, re- 
turned and gave Connery back the 
keys. CIpnnery still waited, mtfl Ea- 
ton rettimed with the red-haired man. 
He let them In and locked the door 
behind them. 

"You are a doctor?" Connery ques- 
tioned the red-haired man. 

"I am a surgeon ; yes." 

"That's what's wanted. Doctor — " 

"My name Is Sinclair. I am Doug- 
las Sinclair of Chicago." 

Connery nodded. "I have heard of 
you." He toned tliea to Baton. "Do 
you know where the gentleman is who 
belongs to Mr. Dome's partyf — Avery. 
I believe his name Is." 

"He Is in die observation car," Ila- 
t(Mi answered. 

"Will "yon go and get him? The car- 
door is locked. The porter will let 
you in and out. Something serious 
has happened here — to Mr. Dome. 
Get &fr. Avery. If you can! without 
alarming Mr. Dome's danghter." 

Eaton nodded understanding and 
followed the porter, who. taking the 
keys again from the conductor, let 
blm oat at the rear door of the car 
and redoeed the door behind bim. 
Eaton a-ent on into the observation 

Without alarming Harriet Dome, he 
got Avery away and out of the car. 

"Is it something wrong with Mr. 
I ome?" Donald Avery demnnded as 
Elaton drew back to let Avery pre  
cede bim into the o|i -n part of the car. 

"So the i-nriductor sa.v^." 

Avery hurried forward toward the 
berth where Oonnery was standing 
beside the surgeon. Connery turned 
toward blm. 

"I sent for you. sir, because you are 
tbe companion of the man who had 
this berth." 

Avery poshed past him. and leaped 
forward as be looked past tbe sur- 
geon. "Wliat has happened to Mr. 
Dorne?" • 

"Ton see him as we found htaa, sir."

He looked down again at the form 
In the berth, and Avery's gaze ^fol- 
lowed his; then, abruptly, it 'tjomed 
away. Avery stood dlnginl^. to die

ture of the skull. Of course^there Is 
some concussion of thifc brain." 

Any inference to be drawn from this 
as to the fierioasness of the Ibjorles 

was plainly bpyond Oonnery. "How 
long .ngo was he struck?" he aske l. 

"Some hours. Since midnight, cer- 
tainly; and longer ago than five

"Could" he have revived half an hour 
ago — say within the hour — enough to 
have pressed the button and nmg the

Slndalr stnli^teMd and gased at 
the conductor curiously. "No, cer- 
tainly not," he replied. "That Is com- 
pletely impossible. Why did you ask?" 

Connery avoided answer. But Avery 
pushed forward. "What is that? 
What's tbatr he dsnuuided. 

"Will you go on widi your exami-

"You said the b^ from this berth

"The pointer hi the washroom, in-

had to reply. "A few moments ear-

"That was before yoo found the 

"That wii¥ -Ahy I went to the borth

"Then you mean you did not find

passing throutrh this car a minute or 
SO before you. must have found bim !" 

Oonnety attended without replying 

"And evidently that man dared not 
report it and could not wait longer 
to know whotht^r .Mr. — Mr. Dorne waj 
really dead; so he rang the bell!" 

"Ought we keep Doctor Sinclair any 
longer from the examination, sir?'' 
Connery now seized Avery's arm in 
appeal. 'The first tliini: for us to 
know is whether Mr. Dorne is dying 

Connerj- checked himself; he had 
won his appeal. Eaton, standing qui 
etly watihfiil, oiiserved that Avery'."; 
eagerness to accuse now had been 
replaced by another interest which 
the conductor's words bad recalled. 
Whether the irtan in the berth was to 
live or die — evidently that was mo- 
mentously ti) affect Donald Avery one- 
way or the other. 

"Of course, by all means proceed 
with your examination. Doctor," 
Avery dire  ted. 

As Sinclair again bent over tbe 
body Avoy leaned over also; Eaton 
gazed down, and Connery — a little 
paler than before and with Hps tight- 
ly set 


"Isn't This Basil SantoineT" 

The surgeon, having fihished 
ening tbe pajamas, pulled , open And 
carefully r«noved the Jacket part, 
leaving the upper part of the body of 
the man in the berth exposed. Con- 
ductor Connery tume l to Avery. 

"You have no objection to my tak- 
ing a list of the articles In the berthr 

Avery seemed to oppose; dial, ap- 
parently, he reeopnizeil that this was 
an obvious part of the conductor's 
duty. "None at all," he replied. 

OMmery gathered up the dothlng. 
the '.'lasses, the watch and parse, and 
laid them on the seat acrora the aisle. 
Sitting down. then, opposite tbem, he 
examined them, and, taking every- 
thing fhwi the pockets of the clothes, 
he began to catalogue them before 
Avery. He counted over tbe gold ant| 
banknotes in the i nrse and entered 
the amount upon his list. 

"Ton kn^w ahoot what he had with 
hImT' he asked. 

"Very closely, "iliat Is correct. 
Nothing Is missing," Avery answered. 

The conductor opened the watch. 
'The crystal is missing." 

Avery nodded. "Yes; It always— 
that Is, It was missing yesterday." 

Connery looked up at him, as 
though sligbtiy puzzled by the manner 
of the reply ; then, having finished his 
list, be rejoined the surgeon. 

Slndalr was still bending over the 
naked torso. It had been a strong, 
healthy body ; Sinclair guessed its age 
at fifty. As a boy, the man might 

have been ah athlete— a college track- 
roBnef* vt oersman — and he had kept 

himself In condition through middle 
age. There was no mark or bruise 
upon the body, except tliat on tbe 
right side an^ Just b^ow the ribs 
th^ now showed a scar about ai  
in * and a half long and of peculiar 
crescent shape. It was evidently a 
surgical scar and had coo^leteiy 
healed. ^ 

Sinclair scrutinized this careA^ 
and then looked up t » Avety. "We 
was operated on recently?" 

"About two years ego," 

"For whatr

after this. At thirty the firm name

particulars only one personalit.v, the 
personality of Santoine; andattbirty- 
tve — though his indlffemce to money

This event b;;d i eeu the iiii!r' " of 

the great western tinancfer. Mattbeir

this affair which had In any way 

shadowed dishonor upon Santoine. So 
much as In his role of a mind without 
personality Santoine ever fought, be 
had fooi^t 'against Latrmi; but his 
fight had been not against the man 
hut against methods. There had -ome 
then a time of uncertainty and un-

he was a world fliure. Then, all et

He backed up to the old stump,

The Sanders Academy stood 
on a small^act of land, just op- 
posite Cicero Hood's home, and 
until the early part of this year, 
my brother, Mont Harmon own-

posaeaaion of t^e Squires family 
for many yeara, and whan I mar-

his stay In the West was more than 
su^gi'stive tliat affairs among the

which liad slain Warden, and delfT-

CkMioery stood overwhelmed for the 
iaMMnent with this fuller recosnttlon 

of tlic seriniisness of the disnster 
whii'h Itad (."ome upon this man in- 
, trusted to his charge; then he turned 
!to Che surgeon. / 

Tan yon do anything for him here, 
♦Dort  t ?" he asked. 

Th ' tiurgeon glanced down the car. 
'■That stateroom — is it occupied?' 
"It's occupied by hU daughter." 
"Went take him in there, then." 
• The four men lifted the inert figure 
•f li.isil Santiiine, carried it into the 
drawing room and laid It on Its Itack 
.von the bed. 

"I have my Instnimefflts." Sinclair 
laald. "I'll pet them: but beft.e 1 de- 

■ dde f i do anytlilng, I ouirht to see 
his '':iii..'luer. Since she is here, tier 

I consent is necessary before any opera- 
fHan nn him." 

"MKs Santoine is in the ottservatlon 
car," .\very said. "I'll get her.'" 

The tone was In snnie wa.v false — 
■aton could not tell exactly how. 
' ATtrj started down the aisle. 

•^M momeat. irieaae. Mr. Avery I" 
' said the conductor. Til ask you not 
to tell Miss Santoine before any 
Other passenger that there has btM»n 

■ an attack upon her father. Walt tm 
j'tU you tut her Inside the door of thic 
I car." 

1 •*Ion yourself said norijn;.'. then, 
i Ihat  -an have nind',' her sii.sp«*ct It?" 
1 Baton asked. 

, Connery shook his head; the con- 
I iuctor. In doubt and anxiety over ex- 
iaotly what action the situation called 
ifor — imable, loo. to communicate any 

;hlnt of It to his superiors to the west 
W ^use of the wires being down- 
dearly had resolved to keep the at 
tack upon Santoine secret for some 
time. "I s,Hd nothing definite even 
to the trainiiK I." he replied; "and 1 
.want you gentlemen to promise me 
kef ore you leave this car that you will 
■ay nothing until T give you leave." 
His eyes shifted from tlie face of 
to another, until he had assured 

{himself that all agreed. As Aver  
left the car, 15a ton found a seat In 
tone of the end sections near the draw 
I tog roont. He did not know whether 
; to ask to leave the  - ir. or whether he 

i ought to remain; and he would hav€ 
tme except for recollection of Har- 
tfet SantolBe. Then the cnrtain at 
I tJje end of the car was luished furihef 
I aside, and she came In. 

She was very pale, but quite con-

by Avery. The door closed, and for 
a motjicnt Eati^n could hear voices In

•tsclair's, Oannery*s. The condoctot 
dND came to ti»e door of the drawing

fllM with the CBtoU of ooti- 


I ponald Avery came out of the draw- 
: Ing room and dropped Into the seat 
{ across from Ealpn. He seemed deei - 
i ff thoughtful— so deeply. Indeed, as to 
I be almoat uaaware ot Eataa'a pres- 
ence. And Baton, nl aef  lin him, 
ygain had the sense that Avery's ah- 
0orption was completely in conse- 
fuences to himself of what was going 
•S. ^^M^d the. door — in how BuU 

aid Avery. ' | 

A long time passed — how long. Ba- 
ton could not have told ; he noted 
onljr ' that during k the fhadowa on 

the snowbank outside the window ap- 
pr-eciably changed their r*)8ltion. FI- 
nall.v the door opened, a'nd Harriet 
Santoine camo out. paler ^h^n before, 
and now not quite m atoady: 

Enton rose as sju- approaclie«l 
tbeui; an l Avery leaped up, all con- 
can «ai 9WP^thjr |or hor Immedi- 
ately *he appenred. Hr soet |^ !•

sw ered, aatf atooAhaUtaV to tho back 
of u seat; then ih« opened her eyes, 

s;iv, Eiiton and recognized him and 
sat down in the seat where Avery bad 
been alttiac. 

"Doctor Stodalr aaya we will know 
iu four or five days," she replied to 
Avery; she t'irned then directly to 
Katon. "He thought there probably 
was a dot uader dio skull, aad he 
operated to find it and rdleve it 
There was one, and we have done all 
we can ; now we may only wait. Doc- 
tor Sinclair has appointed himself 
nurse; im aays I can hdp him, but 
not Juat yet I thought yoo would 
like to know." 

"Thank you; I did want to know," 
Katon acknowledged. He moved away 
from them, and sat down u one of 
the seats further down the 'car. 

Soon he left for his own car, and 
as the door was cldsjn;: behind him. 
a .sound came to his ears from the car 
he just had left — a young girl sud- 
denly crying in abandon. Harriet 
Santoine, he understood, must have 
broken down for the moment, after 
the strain ol the operation: and Ea- 
ton halted as though to turn back, 
feeling the blood drive suddenly up m 
his heart Thai, recollectiiig that bo 
had no right to go to her, he went on. 


Suspicion Faatona on Eaten. 

I'aton found his car better filled 
thiin it had been before, for the people 
shifted from the car behind had been 
scattered through the train. Keeping 
himself to his section, he watched the 
car and outside the windows for 
signs of what investigation Connery 
and Avery were making. Whoever 
had attacked Santoine must still be 
upon the train, for no one could have 
escaped through the snow. No one 
could now escape. Avery and Connery 
and whoever else was making investl- 
gntloon with them evidently were not 
letting anyone know that an investi- 
gation was betog made. Eaton went 
to lunch; on his way back from the 
diner, he saw tlie conductors with pa- 
pers in their hands questioning a pas- 
senger. They evidently were starting 
systematically through the cars, exam- 
ining" each person: they were making 
the plea of necessity of a ivport to 
the railroad ofHces of ntfmes.and ad- 
dresses of an held up by the stoiqiage 
of the train. 

Eaton started on toward the rear 
of the train. 

"A moment, sir!" Connery called. 

Eaton halted. The conductor con- 
fronted him. 

"Your name, slrT* Connery asked. 

"Philip D. Eaton." 

Connery wrote down the answer.

"1 don't know Hillward'a address." 

"Give me the address, then, of the 
man who sent the telegram." 

"I am unable to do that, either." 

Connery spoke a«aiD to the Pnltanan 
conductor, and th  y conversed Inau- 
dibly for a minute. "That Is all, 
then," Connery said thuilly. 

He signed his name to the sheet 
on which he had iMttteo Eaton's an- 


turned It to hlin ; then they went on 
to the passenger now occupying Sec- 
tion Four, withsnt auddU^E uaf tut' 
ther commeut. 

Baton teii htaarif fliat thM« should 
be no danger to himself from this In- 
quiry, (lirected ai.Minst no one, but 
including: coniprfiiciisix ely everyone 
on the train. When the conductors 
had lef^ the ear, he pot hhr nagasttie 
away and went Into the men s com- 
partment to smoke and calm his 
nerves. His return to America had 
passed tiyi bounds of recklessness; 
and what a situation he would' bow be 
in if his actions brought even serious 
suspicions against him: He finished 
his first cigar and was debatini: 
whether to light another, when he 
heard voices outside the car, aad 
opening the window and lo(ridng out 
he saw ( )imer ' and the brakeman 
struggling through the .snow and niu'^- 
tog. apparently, some searcii. Pres- 
ently Connwy passed the door of the 
compartment carrying something 
loosely wrapped in a newspaper In 
his lian(l . Eaton finislicil bis cigar 
and went back to his seat in the car. 

As he glanced at the seat where 
he had left his locked traveling bag, 
he saw that the bag was no longer 
there. It stoml now between the two 
seats on the floor, and picking it up 
and looking at It he fotmd it unfas- 
tened and with maiks about the lock 
which told plaiidy that 'It had been 

He set it on the fioor between his 
knees and che»ked over Its content.''. 
Nothing had been taken, so far as 
he could tell ; for the bag had con- 
tained only clothing, the Chinese dic- 
tionary anil the box of cigars, and 
these all apparently were still there. 
He had laid out the things on the 
seat across from him while checking 
them up, and now he began to put 
them back in the bag. Suddenly he 
noticed that one of his socks was 
missing; what bad been eleven pairs 
was now only ten pairs and one odd 

This disappearance of a single sock 
was so strange, so blzt»rre, so per- 
plexing tliat — unless it was acciden- 
tal — he could not account for it at alL ' 
Xo one oiiens a man's bag and steals 
one sock, and lie was quite sure there 
had been eleven complete pairs there 
earlier in the day. Certainly then, it 
bad been accidental: the bag had 
been opened. Its contents taken out 
and examlne l. and In putting them 
back, one sock had been dropped tm- 
notlced. The al sence of the sod£, 
then, meant no more than that the 
contents of the bag had been thor- 
oughly Investigated. By whom? By 
the man against whom the telegram 
directed to Lawrence Hillward had 
warned Baton? 

Ever since his receipt of the tele- 
gram, Eaton — as he passed through 
tlic train in going to and from the 
diner or for other reasons — had been 
trying covertly to detmnlne whidi. 
If anyone, among the passengera, was 
the "one" who. the telegram had 
warned him. was "following" him. 
For at first he had interpretetl It to 
mean that one of "them" whom he 
had to fear .most be on the train. 
Later he had felt certain that Qdm 
could not be the case, for otherwise 
any one of "them" who knew him 
would have spoken by this tiiiie Xow 
his suspicions that one of "them" must 
be aboard the train retoraed. 

The bag certainly had not been car- 
ried out the forward door of the car, 
or he would have seen It from the 
compartment at that end of the car 
when he had sat smokfag. The bag. 
therefore, had been carried out the 
rear door, and the nmn who had 
opene l It, if a passenger, must still 

Baton, redlllng his dgarcase to

got up and went toward the rear of 
the train. A jiorter was still posted 
at the door of the Santoine car, who 
watnsd hloa to be qai«ft in passing 
through. The car, he found, vrae en- 
tirely empty ; the door to the drawing 
room where Santoine lay was closed. 

He went on Into the observation 
car. A flaw SMtt and women passen- 
gers here were reading m talking. 
Glancing on past them throogh tiie 
glass door at the end of the car, he 
saw Harriet Santoine standing alone 
on the observation platform. The 
girl did not see him; her back wss 
toward the car. As he went out onto 
the platform and the sound of the 
closing door came to her, she turned 
to meet him. 

She looked white and tired, and 
fUnt gray riiadows vndemeath lier 
eyes showed where dark drden were 
beginning to form. 

"I am supposed to be resting," she 
explained qi;letly, accepting him as 
one who had the right to art:. 

"How Is your father?*' 

"Just the same; there may be no 
change, Doctor Sinclair says, for days. 
It seems all so sodden and so— ter- 
rible, Mr. Baton." 

EJaton, leaning against the rail be- 
side her and glancing at her, saw that 
her lashes were wet, and his eyw 
dropped as they caught hers. 

"The?r  ave been tnTsstigating the

"Is that all they have learned?^ " 
"No; they i.ave found the weapoiL" 
"The weapon with which your fa-

"Yes ; the man who did }t seeBM set 
to have realized that the train wss 
stopped — or at least that It would 
be stopped for su long — and he threw 
it off the train, thinking,'! sovpose; 
we should be miles away from there 
by morning. But the train didn't 
move, and the snow didn't cover it 
up, and it was found lying against 
tlie snow bank this afternoon. It cor- 
res^Mnds, Doctor Sinclair says, with 
Father's injuries." 
"What was ii?" 

"It seems to have been a bar of 
metal— of steel, they said, I think. 
Mr. Eaton — wrapped in a man's black 

"A sock !" Eatoji's voice sounded 
strange to himself; he felt that the 
blood had left his cheeks, leaving him 
pale, and tliat the girl must notice it 
"A man's sockT 

Then he saw that she had not no- 
ticed. for she had not been looking 
at him. 

"It could be carried in that way 
tiirongh the sleepers, you know, with- 
out attracting attention," she ob- 

Eaton controlled himself. "A 
sock I" he said again, reflectively. 

He felt suddenly a. rough tap upon 
his .shoulder, and turning, saw that 
Donald Avery had come out upon the 
platform and was standing beside 
him; and behind Avery he saw Con- 
ductor Connery. There was no one 
else on the platform. 

"Will you tell me, Mr. Katon — or 
whatever eNe your name may be — 
what it is that you have been asking 
Miss Santoine?" Avery demanded 
harshly. "Harry, what has tills saan 
been saying to you?" 

"Mr. Eaton?" Her gaze went won- 
deringly from Avery to Eaton and 
back again. "Why^ — why, Don! He 
has only been asking me what we had 
found out about tlie attack on Fa- 
ther :" 

"And you told him?" Avery swung 
toward Eaton. "Tou dog!" he mouth- 
ed. "Harriet, lie asked you that be- 
cause he needed to know — he had to

Harding, Reviewing Report, Says 
Longer Period Has Outlived 

New York, Dec. 2.— The twelve-hour

In American llfe^ Presidut Harding 
declares, commenting on the report of 
the committee on work periods In con- 
tinuous industry of the Federated 
American Ii^ngineering Societies. 

The committee, after two yean of 
in\-estIgation of more than forty con- 
tinuous industries, including steel and j

was served by the house appropria- 
tions committee In reporting the $298,- 
Slif;.5:?S naval iiiipropriation hill. A 
six-line provision placed in the l ill by

provides for an enlisted personnel of 

Naval Competition Renewed. 

Tbe committee report said la'-ge 
cruisers and submarine programs were 
planned abroad, adding: 

"In other words, competition is on 
again in the ^i^e direction to which 
the unratified Washington naval treaty 
does not extend, and If it be allowed 
to go on unchecked, the purse strings 
again must be relaxed and this gov- 
ernment, like all others, will be con- 
strained to launch a new program to 
keep us at least abreast of any of the 
other powers." 

Asks Sixteen Light Cruisers. 

Tbe chief reason prompting Chair- 
man Kelley to propose a new naval 
conference was understood to have 
been the lij,'ht cruiser program recom- 
mended by tbe naval general board.

keep tbe Unite 1 States navy oe a par- 
ity with other navies in cnlssn in- 
cluded sixteen new Ug^t cruisers to

tlie people of Kentucky that !f

or, and offered my support la elected. No man In the Governor'.s 
lie should make the race. This , chair can give the State his best ser- 
vice  irhen he has hi/ eye on some fu- 
ture political preferment. 

I favor a PrUhary iBlectlea to deteK 
mise the nominatton of tte Demo- 
cratic candidate for the Governorship. 
I believe it would bfti political suicide 
for oar Party to m&kfi tlie nomination 
ta any other waj. Ojily in a Primary 
■fecCkm can the women votera of Oe 
state give full expre^slMi ta their po- 
litical opinions. • 
I think the greatest service a pub-

of the business ana of Ken- it ati^ plaiaer, I thlnl^we hare eaongb 

illeman declined to enter the race, 
■y active Democratic men and 
all sections of the State 
Vie to stand for the Derao- 

 3rj r -  - nomination for Governor. I 
Z4jbbv» .lecided to announce as a can- 

"Xbe fact that I own and operate 
If tanas la Scott aad Fayette 

iinries I believe entitles me to be 

-I'd as a business man. If I do 

«ame under I In- dassiticatiun of

is necessary to do so. 

I am heartily in fhvo^ of the .con- 
struction of a highway system which 
will closely tie toirether oar peai ie 
in all sections of the State. .\s a 
matter of fact, Kentuckians do not 
know each other as they should and 
we have tliree distinct sections in oiu- 
Commonwehltb. Many of oar problems 
would be solved if the three .sections 
of the State were linked together by 
good roads, so that our people could 
really know each other and worlc to- 
gether for the Sbnumm good. I am 
informed by' e^; ert men who have 
studied this question that this plan 
can be carried out without increased 
taxation on existing property. 

Good roads aad good schools go to- 
gether and every dtiaea will agree 
that everything possible should be 
done for tlie education of our chil- 
dren. I would like to see our public 
schools the equal of those of any 
State la the Unitai and I wlU work to 
that end. I am also of the opinion 
that every encouragement possible 
should be given to our State Univer- 
sity and that it be placed on a plane 
equal to the UalTenity of any other 
State: If I ua e l e ct e d Oovmor I 
will stay on the JrtI fad' give the State 
a busines.^ adn^alstration, and the 
best that is within me. 

If elected Governor, I will call to 
my aid aone df Ae leadlag baslne.- s 
men in different lines and seek the r 
counsel and support in solving th«  
many difficul; problems which con- 
front our people. No man can solve 
these problems alone, and the can- 
didate who promise to do so is the 
worst type of a demagogue seeking 
votes. If elected, I promise to do the 
very best I can witli the counsel and 
advice of leading men and women of 
our State to solve oar bosinaas diffi- 
culties for the beet Interests of the 

I enter this race free from any 
political p r o a as e a aad a b eel at eiy fNe 

from any 'help or promise of help in 
anyway from any business iirm or 
corporation anywhere. 

It is wcU /hao^ to the State that 
for yean I bavv been aa adrocate of 

cooperative organization among the 
farmers. Farming is the chief busi- 
ness in Kentucky and I am delighted 
that our coopenU4ve organisations are

When an insurance company withholds temporarily the payment of a 
loss, and takes all the time required to make necessary appraisals and 
mvcstigations it actually is safeguarding the interests of everybody for 
insutance protedicai. 

Insurance rates rise and fall in direct proportion to the rise amd fall 
of losses. An unjust claim adds to the loss total and eventually to youi 

It is obvious, therefore, that in those rare instances, when an bsur- 
ance company withholds paymenf of a claim because of an irregularity, 
it is acting in the mterests of the common good, doing its part in min- 
imizing the losses that are paid tor by the nation's policy-holders.

Government writes the tax laws, but 
if elected Governor I will work with 
the Legislature in every way possible 
to bring about the lowering of owf^tax 
es. As a farmer Imow what the 
burden of taxation Is to the farmer 
^rf^ busines- man and home owner, 
and every effort must be made to re- 
duce taxation. 

The time has come when a halt 
moat be called in increasing our State 
d^t, and every ^ort to reduce it 
must be made. The obligations of 
debt are made by the State Legisla- 
ture and not by the Governor, but If 
I am elected I will earnestly Insist 
that State expenditures be kept with- 
in the revenoe «o that onr d^ will 
not be increased in the next Admin- 
istration. Every effort must be made

1 have the highest regard for the dis- 
tinguished ceatteBian who has announced 
as a candidal* tor Qovecnor and for 
those whose annOTinoemmta I am in- 
formed will soon be forthcoming. No 
act or utterance of mine will mar the 
campaign. We have had entirely too 
much strife within our own party in the 
past and X am hopeful that the campaign 
will be settled upon the merits of the 
candidates themselves and their issues, 
s3o that ^ben the decision is made we 
will go into the' final election with a 
united Democratic Party. I am inform- 
ed hir naair aottaaMaMcrata In aU parts 
of ttie State that Ifl am nominated we can 
expect to poll the full vote of the Party, 
and after months of careful survey and 
investigation I am convinced that if 
nominated I can build up aa organisation 
which will carry our Party to success in 
the final election beyond any question. 1 
am absolutely- sincere in my desire to 
serve Kentucky. For four years in the 
House of Representatives in Kentucky, lor 
four years in tbe State Senate, and for 
fourteen jraaia Is the Concress of the 
United States I have represented a great 
and a patriotic people. In the last two 
elections 1 have not had opposition from 
the Republican Party. The people of the 
Seventh CongreMlonal District would not 
have given me this svvlce U I h^d 
neglected the business entrusted to me. 
I have faithfully tried to serve them, 
IX elected Governor my ambition will be 
to render a full measure of service. 

I served in Congress under the leader- 
ship of that great President. Woodrow 
Wilson, and always gave him and his 
policies loyaL support. When my Party 
called me to itaanage the State Campaign 
in 1916 for President Wilson I, accepted 
the responsibility, and we carried the 
State by an overwhelming majority. Al- 
thouab a man of moderate means I paid 
the aeOcit of that campaign amounting 
to a good many thousands of dollars and 
have never regretted the expenditure. 
In 1920 the National Democratic Commit- 
tee caUed me to New Taik te take 
charge of the organlzatioB work tliere. 
and for months 1 labored day and night 
for Party success. We knew that condi- 
tions were such that we could not win 
but we fought as best we could to the 
last ditch. 1 mention these personal mat- 
ters to show that I have tried to give 
something in return for the favors 
which my Party has shown to me. 

It is well known 'that farm lands and 
real estate in the cities are bearing 
heavy burdens of taxation. U I am elect- 
ed Governor. I wtU make a full Investiga- 
tion of the taxes toeing paid by all class- 
es of property abd if it is found tha*. 
certain classes of property are escaping 
their share of taxes, then I will certainly 
recommend legislation to remedy this de- 
fect in our taxing system. 

Recent political developments demon- 
strate that there ia a ^lendid opportu- 
nity under proper leadership to bring 
eastern Kentucky and the largest city to 
our Commonwealth back into the Demo- 
cratic fold. IX elected Governor, I will 
nake every effort to give such a good 
admlnlatratkm aad to work in harmony 
with the Democrats from the sections t' 
our State mentioned above, that there 
will be T^vo doubt about ilie outcome in 
future ( ■ tlor". 

No 0. «cr Issues will arise during 
thevcai!.. And so far as I am con- 
cerned iiiey v.'!!I bd* openly, and frankly 
met. I sub:nit my eandiaacy to th 
' -""-nocracy oi the state wltl* lUe hw^ 
it will prove acceptiii'.e. ^
