to run and up to this time I intend to run, 'but during that time I
have been disabled and could not go out from heme very much.
Ne w I am able to stir around and desire to say if I keep well I will
see most all the voters in Letcher county-beforthe primary, but if
I should not get to see some of you I want you to know from this
that I am a candidate and will run the race through, regardless of
what anyone else may say or do.
I desire to say further that I am running on my record and
from what the people know of me in a general way, and am not
running in any other man's interest, nor am I led by any other man
or set of men.
It has been rumored that I might keep certain other persons
from announcing for office, or keep them from running; but, dear
voters, ladies and men, I am running my own race, let others do
likewise or otherwise, so far as I am concerned.
I have no desire
to put any man on or take any man off, and if any man desires to
run or to not run it is without my suggestion or solicitation.

congressional action. Secretary of Labor Davis will act promptly to release
more than 8,000 Immigrants now held
on ships In American ports.
Secretary Davis believes, as a result
of a conference with Attorney (Jeneral
Daugherty, tbnt be is authorized to release Immigrants, otherwise Qualified,
on bond or upon their cwn recognizance. I'ronipt action, he believes, has
become necessary to prevent the outbreak of serious epidemics.
As these S.000 immigrants are in ex
cess of the quotas permitted to come
to the United States during June, under the. Johnson act. they will be deducted from the total number of Immigrants that will he permitted to iand
this year. The greater part of the excess arrivals, Secretary Uavlssald, are
Italians and ToUsli Jews.
Csrlls Action Humanitarian.
Secretary Davis pointed oHt that not
only was action to permit the binding
of immigrants now In port dictated by
humanitarian considerations, but that
every Immigrant has the right to appeal ngn.in.st deportation to a special
court of assizes. If the detision of
this court Is adverse, a further appeal
may be tnken to the secretary of labor. Mr. Davis pointed out that if appeals were entered by the number of
immigrants now detained on ships nt
American ports, these car-eswamp the Department of Labor for
the next six months.
Ronds for temporary admission of
the Immigrants will probably be tised
nt $300. In special cases, where Immigrants would be admissible but for the
Johnson restriction act, they may be
admitted on their own recognizance.
Secretary Davis sahbi that ecrtlfi.
