Stirred to deep resentment by an Insulting cartoon appearing Sunday In the Danville Register, owned and controlled by Horer A. .lames, chairman of the State Democratic Committee. voters were reported last night to be flocking by the thousands to the standard of Harry St. George Tucker, of Lexington, and his managers here were confident that he would sweep the State In his candidacy for the nomination for Govj ernor in the Democratic primary. j The cartoon depleted the distinguished Democrat as the prodigal I soli, returning after an absence of I eight years to the house of his fath| ers. He is dressed in rags, but the battered silk hat and the threadbare 1 long-tail cout indicate that lie had once been a man of respectability.

This insult by Colonel James' newspaper is a follow-up of the eleveutli-hour attack made by the Danville Register on Mr. Tucker's political record. In the Issue of July 22 it was said that tho I?exington candidate had bolted the Democratic party in ISI'6.
