REP – So far as our knowledge and belief goes the Glasgow Republican was the first paper in Kentucky to open a broadside against the Pari-Mutuel law, and the activities of the Jockey Club in political affairs. At that time, we were getting considerable advertising from the Jockey Club at fancy prices, and passes to all the races. The fact we did not use the passes did not prevent its being sent each year. But as soon as the Jockey Club found where we stood all advertising and passes stopped.
REP – A special sent to the newspapers from Horse Cave says: Crystal Cave, storm center of seven years’ controversy as to jurisdiction was found to be in Hart county when commissioners of Hart and Edmonson counties surveyed the site.

In Bowling Green Sheriff Kelly closed down some of the gambling concessions, four of the personnel were later arrested.

GT – Saturday was another field day for drunks in Glasgow. Official records show 18 appearances in Police Court, all of them growing out of liquor law violations. And all this in face of publication of similar facts by the Times at least four times within the past sixty days. True, officials are making arrest of the drunks, but the drunks do not disclose the source of their liquor supply. ¶ It is a burning shame, damnable outrage, when your mother and mine, your sister and mine, when my daughter and yours must be elbowed about town, must listen to drunken shouts and obscene jokes of a few drunk men who habitually walk the street with belly full of rot gut booze, and be insulted by loafing bootleggers.

Gene Mitchell is dead, and Will Wilson is in jail here charged with his murder. Both men are colored and reside in the Hiseville section. The dead man had a reputation of being a “bad man”. He was father of Rolly Mitchell who was killed in a crap game several years ago. It appears Mitchell had been annoying the family of Wilson from time to time and had been ordered to stay away. Nevertheless, he was there the night of the killing. Only a few words were passed, then Wilson drew a shotgun and shot Mitchell in the back of the head, killing him instantly. He at once telephoned officers to come arrest him. As the dead man rolled to the ground his hand came out of his pocket. Clutched tightly therein was an ivory handle razor.
