It is passing into a proverb that beitig 
defeated for office makes many a man a 
patriot. '• 

Fifteen thousand Republicans scratch- 
ed Rev. John Wesley Asbury at the late 
Slate election. 

Half the people of Virginia are kept 
busy all the time trying to keep the : 
other half from fighting duels. 

If it be true that “the early bird catches j 
the worm,” some of the candidates for j 
municipal offices will have to go to taking 
vermifuge before long. 

The telegraph companies, in dealing 
with their strikiug operators, have ex- 
emplified the old expression, “come back, 
and all will be forgiven.” 

The News Journal should not objeot to 

being swallowed by the Enquires, for by 

getting a view of the inside workings 
of that great journal it might learn to 
make a newspaper of itself. 

Probably the Louisville Commercial is ! 
kicking about a little notice of Judge 
Black, which a visitor clipped for our 
columns and sent up stairs while the 
editor had stepped out upo^ i^lill Street 
to see whether local option had got to 
town, or not. 

The Cincinnati News Journal “deniges 
of’ the story that it is a Jonah 
which is soon to be swallowed by 
tbo Enquirer whale. The News/Journal 
may not be a Jonah, but so far it has 
displayed very few indications of being a 
Mascotte. , 

There are some queer rumors afloat in 
reference to one of the races in the con- 
test for municipal officers, which would 
make mighty interesting reading. .If, 
after investigation, we find ' 
to be well fo u nded,, wp 1 ^ 

Central Kentucky has 
ulating herself .tpoa her eebape from the 
disastrous storms which have been devas- 
tating other sections of the country; but 
the blast at Athens on Tuesday goes to 
show that the Bluegrass Region is not 
altogether out of the track of the tornado 
and the cycle of the cyclone. 

Returns of the late election have been 
received at the office of 'the Secretary of 
(otate from all the counties except Martin, 
which is usually a month or two behind 
with her returns. In 1879 Martin Coun- 
ty went Republican by 125 majority. 
Knott’s majority, in round numbers, is 
44,500. Blackburn's majority was 43,900, 
in round numbers. 

Col. Billy O’Bradley is now packing 
his valise preparatory to seekingvthe se- 
clusion which Colorado, grants. Ills able 
efforts to redeem Kentucky and his mas- 
terly financial screeds, instead ol demol- 
ishing the Democratic party in Kentucky, 
reacted like a boomerang and added about 
a thousand votes to the already large 
Democratic majority. 

John Kelley has written a letter to 
lion. M. K. McGrath of Chicago, in ref- 
erence to the old ticket. lie says: “Should 
the old ticket be nominated it will be sup- 
ported with as much viger and effort as 
that made in 1870 by us." Popular senti- 
ment is evidently in favor of the old tick- 
et, and Tilden may yet have the pleasure 
of “licking the rascals out.” 

The Louisville Commercial 6ays that 
increased wealth is blessing all the South 
except Kentucky. It is a fact, however, 
that .Kentucky is enjoying a largely in- 
creased and constantly increasing share of 
material prosperity. It does seem odd that 
the gang of fellows who can find nothing 
in Kentucky that pleases them don’t take 
up their bed and walk off to some other 
place. 

Gen. Williams may think that Hon. 
J. C. S. Blackburn will cause him merely 
a momentary annoyance in his race for 
the United States Senatorship this Winter, 
But we wish to request him right now 
to jot down in his note book in red ink 
that if Captain Blackburn is not elected 
to the Senate, he can name the man — and 
the initials of his name won't be John S. 
Williams, either. 

Tiie canvass for tho Mayoralty is begin- 
ning to take a definite shape. Dr. Doug 
Price is a candidate, and Mayor Claude 
M. Johnson will be. A strong pressure 
is also being brought to bear npon Coun- 
cilman James M. Graves to become a can- 
didate for the position, but he is unde- 
cided about it. Other heads will pop up 
in a few days, and a number of them 
will pop off next March when the elec- 
tion comes. 

Every citizen of Kentucky is invited to 
be present at the inauguration of Gov- 
ernor Knott next Tuesday. Frankfort 
spreads herself wide open, and will make 
room for all who may attend. It will be 
the grandest inaugural ever held in Ken- 
tucky. The people seem to know by in- 
stinct that Knott will be a Governor of a 
different style from any the State haB had 
for a very long time, and they aro in- 
stinctively impelled to make unusual dem- 
onstrations about it. 

A Dead Shot 

May be taken at liver and bilious disor- 
ders with Dr. R. V. Pierce's “Pleasant 
Purgative Pellets.” Mild yet certain in 
operation; and there is none of the reac- 
tion consequent upon taking, severe and 



It is reasonably sure that Lexington 
will soon have an evening daily paper. 
Tho city presents a fair field for such an 
enterprise. 

Tue editor of the Carlisle Mercury says 
he is not an applicant for the position of 
Secretary of State, but that he could be 
induced to accept it. He cast the vote of 
Nicholas County for Knott in the Conven- 
tion. j 

Kentucky politics aro stagnating. 
Things politic in this State are so one- 
sided that tho trigger- work is all done 
within the winning side, and not enough 
of the secret work ever leaks out to make 
matters interesting to the people at large. 

The Covington Commonwealth holds 
Governor Knott responsible for the mag- 
nificent scale upon which the people of 
Frankfort are preparing for his inaugura- 
tion. The Commonwealth is a bold, out- 
spoken paper, but is rather an over-right- 
eous kicker at times. 

It is beginning to be bruited abroad 
that the Democrats have a living chance 
to carry Iowa this fall. The sturdy Iowa 
farmers have been holding weekly meet- 
ings at the country school holies for a 
year or two and debating the tafiff ques- 
tion among themselves. This accounts 
for the milk in the cocoanut. 

Some of tho papers accuse Mr. McLean, 
of the Cincinnati Enquirer, of being a 
boss. There is no denying the fact, say 
what you may, that the Enquirer has 
done the Democratic party in the North- 
west more good and make it more con- 
verts than all the other Democratic papers 
combined. It is the only Democratic 
newspaper that the Republicans will read, 
and sooner or later it converts them to 



Fire in Mt. Sterling. 

On Tuesday night Reed & Pearsall’s 
big steam tannery in Mt. Sterling was 
completely destroyed by tire. Loss about 
$15,000; insured. 

Jail Fired. 

Yesterday afternoon a prisoner in one 
of the lower eells of the jail at Nicholas- 
ville set fire to the building with the view, 
it is supposed, of making his escape. The 
fire was extinguished before any material 
damage was doue, and none of the prison- 
ers got away. 

Arrival of Horses. 

The stablo of Messrs. Powers & Son ar- 
rived at the Race Track yesterday morn- 
ing. Among the lot are Aztec, Aritino, a 
filly by Aramis, dam Experience Oaks, 
and one by Prince Charles, Mr. Swigert’s 
recent purchase. They will be handled 
by Lee Paul and will take part in our 
coming races. ^ 

The Big Inauguration. 

Invitations to attend the inauguration 
of Governor-elect Knott will be sent to 
tho President and his Cabinet, the Gover- 
nors of all the States, to many represen- 
tative men in each political party, and 
members of Congress, the Legislature, 
Mayers of cities, etc. The number of in- 
vitations sent out will exceed 1,000. 

Kentucky’s Corn Crop. 

The Washington Agricultuta! Depart- 
ment report for August places the average 
corn crop'of Kentucky at 97 per cent, of 
a perfect crop. This is better than that 
of any surrounding State. Ohio is 89, 
Indiana 95, Illinois 86, Tennessee 89. 
The yield is estimated at 25 bushels per 
acre, and the total yield of the country at 
seventeen hundred million bushels. 

Capt. Kidd's Sale. 

There was a fair attendance ttt CaDt.

SKIN HUMORS Thresher Engine 



Wonderful Cure of a Lad 12 years 
old. who for 8 years, from the 
. Top of his Head to his 
Ankles, was One Mass 
of Scabs. 

£i Y .? ON ' a twe * ve years of age, was afflicted , 
with the worn form of Eczema for a period of eight 
Years. So virulent was it that from the top oi his 
bead to wiiliiu a few inches of his aukles he w;u 
oue mass of scabs, which refused to yield to any 
treatment that was attempted. Every remedy that 
was suggested by friends or physicians was tried in 
vain. Allopathy, homoeopathy, herbs, roots, salt- 
water baths, lias seed poultices, soaps, ointments, 
and in short everything that could be done 
to eradicate the disorder seemed only to aggravate 
it, and the child’s life became a burden to him, and 
the expense of the various experiments was a con- 
stant drain upon our resources. 

My wife, reading the advestisement of the Cuti- 
cura Remedies in one of the dally papers, resolved 
to make one mere attempt at u cure. (The disease 
was now encroaching upon his face, and seemed in- 
curable.) I gave a reluciaut consent to the propo- 
sal, and an interview was sought w ith a famous lady 
physician of New York, who made a most thorough 
examination of the case, and promised a cure with- 
out the least hesitation by the use of Cuticura Rem- 
edies. In one week there was a marked change: 
the raw and angry sores began to grow pale and 
along the outer edges scaled oil’, and as time wore on, 
they began to disappear entirely, until at the pre- 
sent writing the only vestige is one small spot upon 
the forearm, scarcely visible and fast disappearing. 

Thus after eight years of expense and anxiety, 
we have the intense satisfaction of seeing the child’s 
skin as fair and smooth i   it was before this dread- 
ful cutaneous disorder attacked hup. 

tiiucerely yours,

Mr. Jake Uostcttcr gave a burgoo yes- ’ 
terday in his woods, which was attended 
by Governor Blaekburit, Hon. J. C. S. 
Blackburn, Hon. J. Stoddard Johnston, 
and other prominent gentlemen, together 
with numerous other lesser lights. 
Speeches were made and a good time gen- 
erally had. 

Kentucky Association Fixed Events. 

The nominations for the Kentucky As- 
sociation fixed events (1885) are closed 
with the following number of entries : 

Phcenix Hotel States, 41; Ashland 
Oaks, 36; Blue Ribbon Stakes, 38; Yiley 
Stakes, 40; Kentucky Stallion Stakes, 28. 

For the three-year old stakes, spring 
meeting, 188^1, there are ten entries. 

The Orphan Brigade. 

The local committee to arrange for the 
Reunion of the First Kentucky Confeder- 
ate Brigade in this city, on September 
5th, met last night and effected a perman- 
ent organization. I Mnjor Joel lliggins 
was elected Chairman of the committee, 
and Jacob Sandusky Secretary. Major 
Higgins and Dr. B. IV. Dudley were ap- 
pointed a committee to secure reduced 
rates on the railroads, and John T. 
Hawkins was appointed to attend to the 
printing of badges, registration, &c., and 
Major lliggins was appointed to secure 
music. Jackson Ilall was chosen as the 
place of holding the Reunion, and a prop- 
osition of Mr. Simonds to feed the vet- 
erans at fifty cents per meal was accepted. 

It was announced that lion. J. C. S. 
Blackburn had consented to deliver an 
oration at the grave of Gen. Roger Han- 
son on the afternoon of the Reunion, at 
which time the members of the brigade 
will march out to the Cemetery to deco- 
rato the graves of Gen. Hanson, Gen. 
Breckinridge, and other members of the 
command. 

The Committee decided not to solicit 
aid in defraying the expenses of the 
meeting, but announce that any person de- 
siring to assist them may do so by leaving 
their contributions with Mr. Jacob San- 
dusky at Baker & Mason’s, No. 13 Cheap- 
side. 

North American Review. 

The North American Review for Sep- 
tember is an admirably constituted number, 
whether we regard the timeliness and im 
portance of the subjects presented, or tho 
eminent competence of the authors chosen 
for their discussion. First comes “State 
Regulation ofCorporate Profits”, by Chief- 
Justice T, M. Cooley, of Michigan, show- 
ing how far, by wise legislation and by 
applying in the spirit of enlightened ju- 
risprudence the principles of the common 
law, the harrowing exactions of corporate 
companies and monopolies in general 
may be restrained and tho interests of tho 
people effectually conserved. John A. 
Kasson, M. C., writes on “Municipal Re- 
form”, and offers suggestions for the 
abatement of the evils of misgovermentin 
our great municipalities that will com- 
mand the earnest interest of all good citi- 
zens without respect to party. Richard 
Grant White treats of “Class Distinctions 
in the United States”, a subject that is 
destined to occupy more and more the at- 
tention of the American people as great 
fortunes increase. “Shooting at Sight" is 
the subject of some pertinent reflections by 
James Jackson, Chief-Justice of the State 
of Georgia. In “Facts about the Caucus 
and the Primary”, George Walton Green 
unveils the tricks practiced by political 
managers in large cities. The well known 
English essayist, W. II. Mallock, contri- 
butes “Conversations with a Solitary”, in 
which he sets forth with much ingenuity 
the Arguments adverse to popular govern- 
ment. The Rev. Dr. D. S. Phelan con- 
tributes an article sparkling with epi- 
grams, on the “Limitations of Freethink- 
mg". Finally, Grant Allen, the most 
charming of all living writers on natural 
history, disoourBes on “An American 
Wild Flower”. Published at 30 Lafay- 
ette Place, New York, and for sale by 
booksellers generally. 

Horsford’s Acid Phosphate in Liver and 
Kidney Troubles. 

Dr. O. G. Cilly, Boston, says: “I 
have used it with the most remarkable 
success in dyspepsia, and derangement of 
the liver and kidneys." I 



deputies yesterday orougnt u. w . o. 
Henderson to the jail in this city for safe- 
keeping. Henderson was sentenced to be 
hanged for murder at the late term of the 
Carter Circuit Court, and the day of his 
execution was fixed upon the 9th of No- 
vember next. The Carter jail is very in- 
secure, and it was feared that he would 
either escape from it or be rescued by his 
friends. 

Recovered. 

Mr. Benjamin Crawford, whose house 
was entered and robbed by burglars some 
two weeks ago, received a letter yesterday 
from a transportation agent in Cincinnati 
stating that Mr. Crawford’s memorandum 
book, letters, &c., which had been stolen 
from him on the night ol the burglary, 
had been found in a car loaded with 
staves at the Cincinnati Southern depot 



Kentucky Inventors. 

Patents were issued yesterday to the 
following Kentucky inventors : 

S. R. Ames of Louisville, for a whiffle- 
tree. 

M. L. Ballard of Georgetown, for a 
bottle-stopper. 

S. M. Furman of Henderson, for a sur- 
gical bandage. 

Frederick Stitzel of Louisville, for a 
car-coupling. 

Also, to Geo. C. Gordon of Mounds- 
ville, W. Va., for a mill-stone driver. 

Contested Seats. 

We will likely have two contested seat? 
in tho Legislature. R. Y. Thomas Jr., 
the gallant young editor of the Muhlen- 
burg Echo after a race, was only beaten 
by 30 votes, and more than that number 
received by his opponent are alleged to 
have been fraudulent. In Greenup Coun- 
ty, Warnock, Demoorat, was beaten three 
votes by Green, Republican. It is alleged 
that at one precinct tho Judge and Clerk 
of election were near kinsman of Green, 
and tore up Warnock votes, refusing to 
record them. If this can be established, 
Warnock need have no fear of not getting 
his seat. 

The Fayette County Social Club. 

Invitations are out for the Fayette 
County Social Club hop, which will be 
given at Jackson Hall the 29th and 31st 
of August. The Floor Committee for 
Wednesday evening will be R. D. Wil- 
liams, A. G. Morgan, Will Searce, F. A. 
Harrison, R. L. Bowman, 0. W. Kim- 
brough, E. B. Ilayman, R. H. King, Jas. 
D. De Long; and for the second night the 
Committee will be M. C. Alford, H. E. 
Innes, Robert Swigert, J. W. Sayre, C. 
II. Edge, Will McDowell, W. Hughes, J. 
A. Luil, Claude Higgins. This will 
doubtless prove one of the^most pleasant 
entertainments ever given m Lexington. 
Those who are getting it up know no such 
word ns fail, and will not stop work until 
a glorious Buccess is assured. 

Cincinnati in Lexington. 

Cincinnati Day at the Fair promises to 
be immense. Gen.Gentry basjust returned 
from Cincinnati and brings favorable re- 
ports from that city. Mayor Stephens re- 
ceived Gen. Gentry kindly and extended 
every courtesy possible to him. Mayor 
Stephens assured Gen. Gentry that he and 
the various city officials would bo on hand 
and that a very large delegation of Cin- 
natians would come over on that day. 
The Cincinnati Southern will run three 
extra trains that day, as will the K. C. 
Col. W. W. Peabody, President of the 
Cincinnati Exposition, and J. D. Parker, 
President of the Chamber of Commerce, 
will also be on hand that day with other 
officers of the Exposition. The Mayor of 
Covington, Mr. R. A. Athey, and tho offi- 
cials of that city will join the Cincinnati 
delegation. There will be not less than 
15,000 people in Lexington on the Cin- 
nati Day. The Fair promises to be a 
grand suocesss, thanks to the very efficient 
management it has had this year. 



De Chambord Dead. 

Vienna, August 24. — Count de Cham* 
bord died at 7:10 this merning. 



several days on business conueoiod .?ith 
Col. Delph’s Land Agency, returned to 
their home on Wednesday. They leased 
for three years the fine home, Spring Hill, 
of Mrs. Hart, near Versailles. We con- 
gratulate the people of Woodford in their 
good fortune in being able to claim as cit- 
izens these elegant and really charming 
people. • 

Bad Case af St. Vitus Dance. 

Minister is tho singular name of a town

ly cured my son of a bad case of St. Vitus 
Dance.” $1.50. 

Street Railway Extension. 

The rails for extending the Street Rail- 
way from Main up Rfoadtoay to Sixth 
Street have been, received and scattered 
along a part of the ling. This is a good 
indication \hat the )ine will be built 
shortly. 

Pardons. 

We learn that there were about six 
hundred people in Frankfort Wednesday 
applying to the Governor for pardotis of va- 
rious kinds for their friends, and it is ex- 
pected there will be fully a thousand a 
day from now until Knott comes in.. 

Lawn Tennis. 

“Lawn Tennis” is rapidly coming to 
the front as the national game for ladies 
and gentlemen. It is represented to be 
a very prettjtgarae, and quite as costly as 
pretty, as it must be played in uniform, 
and a pair of “Tennis shoes" alone costs 
fram $17 to $20. 

Another Ox Gored. 

“Eight murders in Cincinnati last 
week” was the heading of a dispatch in 
one of our exchanges. Had these trage- 
dies occurred south of Mason and 
Dixon’s line the Northern papers would 
have made a great sensation about South- 
ern barbarism. As it is, no comment is 
made. 

Malaria. 

Portsmouth, August 23.— Malaria has 
appeared at several Nev. Hampshire 
beaches and many people aro ill. Lewis 
Wetherby, a Philadelphian, died in his 
eottago of malignant typhoid fever yes- 
terday. Ilis servants and family are ill. 
Defective drainage is supposed to be the 
cause of the trouble. Mrs. Ward, a ho- 
tel guest, also died at Rye Beach. 

The Same Old Story. 

New York, August 23. — Elizabeth 
Cannon, twenty-eight years old, was shot 
through the head and instantly killed in 
her apartment, 466 Eighth Avenue, this 
morning by George Beatty, forty-four 
years old. After killing her Beatty shot 
himself through the heart and fell dead 
across her body. The cause of the mur- 
der and suicide is unknown. 

Railroad Earnings. 

Philadelphia, ;August 23.— The offi- 
cial statement of the business of all the 
lines of the Pennsylvania Railroad Com- 
pany, east of Pittsburg and Erie, for sev- 
en months of 1883, os compared with the 
same period of 1882, shows an increase in 
the net earnings of $174,345. All the 
lines west of Pittsburg and Erie for seven 
months of 1883 show a surplus over all 
liabilities of $309,690, a decrease as com- 
pared with the (same period of 1882 of 
$45,340. ’ 

Druggists Take Notice. 

The Supreme Court of Pennsylvania 
having sustained the District Court of Al- 
legheny County, granting to R. E. Sellers 
& Co., the exclusive right to the “trade 
mark" “Blood Searober” (registered at 
Washington, D. C., December 11, 1876), 
our name will bo printed on all outside 
wrappers. Any one selling, or offering 
for sale, any “Blood Searcher" without 
bearing our namo will be prosecuted to 
tho full extent of the law. (The penalty 
is $1,000 fine and two years’ imprison- 
ment.) R. E. Sellers & Co.,

CERTAIN SHAMS. 

Swindlers and Their Victims— How 
Careless People Suffer in Health 
and Pocket. 

Every streak ol sunshine creates a shadow, and 
behind every truth couches its corresponding lie. 
Whosoever lias not been in some way fooled and 
robbed by swindlers and their works has had better 
luck in life than most mortals. In fact the best 
witnesses to the value of a given article are the 
counterfeits ind Imitations which seek to share its 
success without possessing a fraction of its rneilt. 
Hence it goeB without saying that 

HENSON'S CAPCINE POROUS PLASTERS 

are pursued by a host of miserable and worthless 
imitators, eager to appropriate what they can of 
tho fruits of Its victories. These leeches common- 
ly take the form of a cheap plaster. 

Now, these harmless and worthless plasters would 
be detected in a minute if people were careful In 
reading and remembering names. But most per- 
sons merely glanco at them, understand partially 
and forget instantly. What insult? This: Desir- 
ing to buy BENSON’S CAPCINE PLASTER, their 
own carelessness enables some storekeeper or drug- 
gist, who cares more for five or ten cents additional 
prolit than for ihe sweets of an approving con- 
science, to roll them up instead some cheap imlta- 
tion with a similar name. She deceit often works, 
while tho fraudulent plasfcrs never do. 

Don’t permit yourself to bo thus victimized for 
lack of a moment’s care. BENSON’S CAPCINE 
POROUS PLASTERS havo-stood tho test of science 
and experience and are the product of both. Ex- 
omlno the article, and satisfy yourself that the 
word CAPCINE Is cut in it.

Wednesilay Morning;, iligtist 20, 1S83 



Gov. Blackburn’s administration is 
being severely criticised by many of the 
State papers. We believe that Gov. 
Blackburn has always tried to act for the 
best, and we have never for a moment 
doubted the honesty or the purity of any 
of lits motives. Many of his actions we 
have considered ill advised and unpolitic, 
and many of them have proven to be so, 
but all men are liable to err, and his 
errors have been on the side of mercy. 
‘•The Old Governor,” as he As familiarly 
called bv his intimates, has a kind heart, 
and can't help it. The amelioration of 
human misfortune and human distress 
has been his life-timo hobby, and if, in 
the practice of philanthropy he has over- 
looked the interests of State, it has been 
not because he loved law the less, but bej 
cause lie loved the great principles of love 
and mercy and charity th# more. To 
pharaphrase an old saw, “To err is hu- 
man, hut to pardon is divine." Governor 
Blackburn lias pardoned many — now let 
many pardon him. 



The Louisvillo Commercial is of the 
opinion the that Southern Exposition will 
“yet come to an untimely end,” as “the 
Lexington papers still attack it." We do 
not know that any Lexington paper has 
attacked the Southern Exposition, and we 
arc quite certain that the Press has not. 
But wc are sure that any enterprise which 
has the gall to ask for two columns 
of free advertising every week in the 
various State papers, and never turn in a 
cent’s worth of pay advertising, will not 
come to an untimely end. It’s infinitude 
of cheek would carry it successfully 
through the wreck of matter and the 
crush of worlds. 



The Fair is on at last. It has been 
lopg and anxiously waited for with many 
nil anticipations of pleasure, and wee are 
grad to tell the people that it will, in ev- 
ery respect, meet their most sanguine ex- 
pectations. To morrow we will have a 
host of visitors from Cincinnati and Cov. 
ington, headed by the Mayors of tho two 
cities, and it is to be hoped that our peo- 
ple will all put on their best bibs and 
tuckers, and show the visitors how nice 
we all are down hero in God’s country. 
Mayor Stephens, of Cincinnati, and May- 
or Athcy, of Covington, nre both native 
Lexingtonians, and we. should do them 
proud. Let us show the Cincinnatians 
what a fine place Lexington is to live in, 
«nd it will not ho long before a lot of 
them will bo coming down this way to 
settle, and to build factories, and to in- 
augurate other industries. 



There is an impression abroad that 
Governor Knott is as callous us a wart, 
and won't pardon anybody. Governor 
Knott is not an impressionable man, but 
he has a very kind heart in his rugged 
old bosom, and will doubtless show all 
the mercy that humanity demands. But he 
is an exceedingly well-balanced man, and 
will notallow his sympathy to run away 
with his sense. lie will weigh the wel- 
fare of the State and the demands of jus- 
tice carefully in the balance before grant- 
ing a petition, and lie will be sure to take 
pity upon tho people as well as upon the 
criminal. 



Those who want to know, you know, 
are referred to the following unsatisfying 
words from the Frankiurt Yeoman, which 
comes from the center of information — 
that is, from the center of such informa- 
tion as there is : 

There is a good deal of speculation con- 
eerning Governor Knott's Cabinet, 
but nobody seems to know positively who 
will occupy any particular place. The 
only thing we can say with regard to it 
is that he will select good men, and no- 
body will have any right to leel disap- 
pointed, as he has made no rash prom- 



ises. 



Tiie Georgia Legislature, which is al- 
most unanimously Democratic, has delib- 
erately passed an apportionment bill, 
which gives the Republicans six out of 
the ten Congressional Districs in the 
State. All propositions to gerrymander 
tho State were promptly voted down. 
Such an act of political magnanimity was 
never known before in the history of the 
oountry. It was probably intended as a 
pointer for the Ohio Republicans. 



A strange story comes in our dis- 
' patches to the effect that a band of Ari- 
zona cowboys and “rustlers,” headed by 
a Mexican desperado, are moving toward 
the Yellowstone Park with the intention 
of kidnapping President Arthur and party, 
and demanding a high ransom for their 
release. The fact that Joe Mulhatton is 
not in Arizona, where the rumor origina- 
ted, lends it a slight tinge of reliability. 



There is no doubt but there is a gang 
of expert cracksmen and burglars in this 
city who have come to stay during the 
Fair and races, and nightly depredations 
may be expected. It will not, therefore, 
be amiss for our people to load up their 
pistols and shotguns and lie in wait to 
welcome the thieves with bloody hands to 
hospitable graves. There is no use to 
miooe matters with such cattle. 



Lexington does not propose to lay be- 
hind in journalism, and never has less 
than fifteen newspapors. They come 
high, but she has to have them. 



The New York Herald of last Sunday 
has a lengthy article showing that no 
matter how great the influx of foreigners 
into the United States, the native popula- 
tion will preponderate. This is ingenious- 
ly shown by a diagram. The circumfer- 
ance of the diagram measures fourteen 
inches and embraces all the Statfes in the 
Union. On the diagram the German and 
Irish population occupy a half inch each, 
England and Wales, British America, 
Scotland, Norway, Sweden, France, China, 
and other countries that have contributed 
to our population occupy altogether less 
than one inch. From this it can be read- 
ily seen that the whole foreign population 
occupies less than two inches, while the 
native is more than twelve. As further 
proof of this, the census of 1SS0 showed 
a native population of 43,402,970, and a 
foreign population of only 6,079,913 
The entire article, vs given by the Her- 
ald, is full of interesting statistics 
Among other things, it shows that the 
center of gravity of the population of the 
United States is located in Kentucky, 
eight miles from Cincinnati, near the vil- 
lage of Taylorsville. 



Third National Bank. 

The stockholders of the new National 
hank met Saturday afternoon in Jud ge 
R. A. Jlucknor’s offieUfeWho 
officers and permanent organization. They 
decided upon tho name, Third National 
Bank of Lexington, Kentacky, and will 
open doors for business about October 1st 
in the office now occupied by Grinstead & 
Bradley. The attendance of stockholders 
was very full indeed, there being over 
950 shares represented out of the 1,000 
subscribed. The capital stock of $100,- 
000 is rather small for the heavy business 
to which the institution will fall heir, but 
tho shrewd management of its directors 
will readily bring to it ample deposits to 
make up for the small capital. The 
directors selected were John W. Berkley, 
James G. Kinnaird, Richard A, 
Buckner, W. II. Boswell, B. F, 

Pettit, W. J. Loughridgc, and R. M, 
Adams. After the adjournment of the 
stockholders, the directors had a meeting 
and elected John W. Berkley, President 
James O. Kinnaird, Vice President, and 
0. L. Bradley, Cashier. The positions 
of Teller and book-keepers have not yet 
been filled, but it is well understood that 
Louis des Oognets will receive the teller- 
ship, with probably Cooper and Barr as 
book-keepers. Much credit is due Lee 
Bradley and Louis des Cognets for the 
substantial class of stockholders they ob- 
tained for the new hank, and it was emi- 
nently proper that they bo retained in the 
positions in which they have given such 
satisfaction. 



SENSATIONAL RUMOR 



That a Party of Cowboys Are Trying to 
Kidnap the President. 



n. 



Hanley, Idaho, August 25. — Consider- 
able excitement exists in this city over a 
report, which appeared last evening in the 
Woods River Times, that a party of Cow- 
boys had started for Yellowstone Park to 
kiduap President Arthur, and Sheriff 
Turner has detailed two trustworthy Dep- 
uties to look up the matter, with instruc- 
tions to summon a strong posse and arrest 
the kidnappers if the facts are as stated. 
The Times says : “During the past two 
weeks a number of strangers, all well pro- 
vided with good riding animals and fire- 
arms, and resembling a party of Regula- 
tors or Texas Cowboys, have been camp- 
ed on Willow Creek, and considerable 
curiosity has been expressed as to the in- 
tentions of the party. Some accounting 
for their outfit as tho party organized to 
go up in the Indian country on a pros- 
pecting trip, while others believed them to 
be a band of Arizona rustlers. During 
several days past some of the party have 
ridden through town in a defiant manner, 
and mysteriously disappeared. From a 
man who came in to-day it is learned that 
the party, who induced him to join and 
take a certain pledge secretly, were organ- 
ized to proceed to Yellowstone. The 
party left last night, going on the stage 
road, and escaped during tho night. The 
object of tho expedition is to capture Pres, 
ident Arthur and party, and to spirit 
them away into the mountain fastness and 
caves, where they will bo fed, hut kept 
prisoners, while the members of tho band 
acts as pickets to prevent being surprised 
and captured while negotiations for a ran- 
som are conduted. 

The captain or leader of the party has 
an idea that a heavy ransom will bo of- 
fered by tho United States and the 
personal friends of the President, after 
search for the party shall he given up, 
and that half a million dollars/ pf* more 
enn thus ho extorted from the Secret Ser- 
vice Fund and divided among tho party, 
on the principal adopted by tho Italian 
bandits. Tho escaped members of the 
company say there were 65 men in the 
outfit, and that some of them were guer- 
rillas, and five Shoshone and Bannock 
Indians will go along as guides and 
scouts, who are armed with repeating 
rifles and scalping knives. The leaders 
are Mexican desperadoes on whose head 
a price has been set, and with the excep- 
tion of the two Italians who left the rail- 
road grade, the others of the party arc 
Cowboys. A grand council was held the 
night before last on the prairie, when 
every man swore by his dagger in the 
fire light to do his duty.

R. A. W.’s. 

Governor Blackburn has appointed as 
staff officers one Brigadier General, 107 
Colonels, three Majors, and six Captains. 
All these men of war are to bo returned 
to civil life by the ending of Governor 
Blackburn’s term of office next week, and 
as few of them arc able to make a living, 
except in the business of slaughtering 
their fellow men, it is feared that they 
may conspire to overthrow tho State Gov- 
ernment and set up a military despotism. 
The entire militia force of the Common- 
wealth has been ordered into camp at the 
capital, but as they aro largely outnum- 
bered by the Colonels about to be muster- 
ed out, there is no telling what may hap- 
pen. Should the discharged Colonels 
form an alliance with the pardoned con- 
victs, it will require all the regulars of 
the Federal Army to maintain tho auton- 
omy of tho “Grand Old Commonwealth.”

Leonatus. 

New York, August 27. — Col. M. Lewis 
Clark, President of the Louisville Jockey 
Club, and Mr. J. G. Chinn, the owner of 
Leonatus and Red Rose, the latest pacing 
wonder, left for Louisville this morning. 
Col. Clark has been delayed in New York

tirement. Speaking of Red Rose, ho 
will match the pacer against any other 
three-year old for $5,000 or more. Pres- 
ident Clark says Parole will start in a 
special stake at the September meeting at 
Louisville.

A Monday Hanging. 

Raleigh, N. C., August 27. — This 
morning, Henry Jones was hanged for the 
murder of Deputy Sheriff Alvis II. Blake 
last yenr. The execution was private. 
Jones made a profession of religion, 
lie was remarkably self-possessed before 
the execution and on the gallows. 
Death ensued in twenty minutes from 
strangulation. Jones was twenty-three 
years old and leaves a wife and infant.

Four People Drowned. 
Portland, Me., August 25. — Yester- 



day afternoon a party of four people were 
drowned in Wells Beach, carried out by 
tho undertow. The names of two are 
Emma Gould of Boston, and Eddie Little 
of Washington, D. C. The others are un- 
known, one being a child. None of the 
bodies have been recovered. The drown- 
ing was witnessed by many people, but 
no assistance could be rendered. 

Wells, Me., August 24. — Further de- 
tails of the drowning accident show that 
nearly fifteen or twenty left Baldhead 
Cliff House yesterday at 9 a. m. and 
drove to Oquil Beach, where they arrived 
about 11 o’clock and entered the surf, tho 
undertow and surf running strong and a 
high Bea on. Although warned of dan- 
ger, in venturing too far nearly the whole 
party were carried out by tho undertow 
and four drowned. Four others were 
rescued in a critical condition, but at last 
accounts were doing well. The rest of 
the party reached shore safely. , 



THE TURF. 



Splendid Burgoo at the Track— General

The Terror of the South. 
“Jasper, Fla. — Mr. Boardman W. Wil- 
son, traveling for A. G. Alford & Co,, 
dealers in Firearms and Cutlery, Balti- 
more, was prostrated here with the 
“break-bone fever;” he asserts that in his 
own, as well as in tho case of others, the 
only thing found to relieve this painful 
malady was St. Jacobs Oil. This won- 
derful pain-cure lias the indorsement of 
sueh men as ex-Postmoster General James, 
Senator Daniel W. Yoorhics, and an army 
of others. 



A Defaulting Treasurer. 

Detroit, Aug. 27.— Evidence now very 
strong goes to show that A. A. Atherton, 
County Treasurer of liosecommon County, 
has skipped with funds amounting to 
about $18,000, of which $3,000 belonged 
to the village, $5,000 to Gernish town- 
ship, and $1,800 to Harvey Emery, a poor 
man, and smaller amounts to various 
other persons and townships. Ilis present 
whereabouts is unknown. 



Of course it will notdo to mention names, 
because such gatherings are privileged, 
and everybody is expected to be on bis 
best social behavior; but we may be par- 
doned tor saying that lion. J. C. S. Black- 
burn was there, and was tho most ad- 
mired of all. Long life to him. Ilis 
heart is in the right place and his tastes 
are Kentuckian from the crown of his 
head to the sole of his foot. May Mr. 
Cadwallader live long and prosper, his 
shadow never grow less, and when he 
turns up his toes to the daisies, may 
tho one ho loves best be there 
to cheer his last moments, though, 
she may have “nothing else to do.” 

The course is in prime condition for the 
races which will now soon commence. 
The inside truck for training is almost, if 
not quite, as good as the other. Turfmen 
are delighted with the condition of things 
here, and the efficient Superintendent, Mr. 
James Murphy, is the recipient of many 
compliments on this account. Ilis knowl- 
edge of the requisites' of a good track 
gives him great advantage, so much so 
that a gentleman came here two 
or three days ago with a proposition from 
the Chicago Association to take charge of 
their course at a good salary. It is not 
likely however that he will accept. lie 
is in lcve with this country, and his breed- 
ing interests will perhaps clinch his con- 
clusion. We do not want to part with 
him. He is the right man in the right 
plane. It isvreportcd, on reliable , author- 
ity, that the Chicago Associatirn 'has ulso 
made overtures to Col. Lewis Clark, Pres- 
ident of tho Louisville Jockey Club, to re- 
sign his position and accept the control of 
tho Chicago meetings, with a viow to 
making them the most important 
in America. Tho business enterprise 
which he has displayed in bringing Lou- 
isville to the front has made him a rep- 
utation that is worth much to him if he 
desires to make money out of it. 

Tho latest report is that an agree- 
ment und a sort of concert of 

action has been arrived at between 

the Chicago, Latonia, and Lexing- 

ton Racing Associations, by which the 
time of holding * tTieir meetings shall 
be arranged without regard to or consul- 
tation with Louisville, thus leaving her 
out in the cold. She has here- 
tofore had no regard for others, 

and now thoso nearest to her are 
about to retaliate by administering the 
same dose. 

The racing this fall will bo very fine. 
The stakes did not fill as well as might bo 
expected, but those of next year 
and 1885 have filled admirably. Under 
the new arrangement, by which the track 
has been leased to a company, will no 
doubt result in making tho Lexington 
course one of the most popular in the 
country. 

Some very fine two-year olds will be 
seen this fall that have never start- 
ed before. Mr. James. Murphy 
has four, among which is 
what he considers the world beater. 
Col. Frank Waters has a two-year-old in 
that stable, by Monarchist, dam by Long- 
fellow, that in appearaee, at least, is every 
inch a race horse. It is by far the finest 
horse that Col. Waters ever owned, which 
is saying a great deal. 

Mr. JohnMcFadden has a yearling by 
Longfellow, dam Nora Creina, which he 
calls the second Leonatus. lie is the 
sixteenth colt out of the old mare, which 
is now twenty-four years old, and is again 
in foal. Nora Creina has foaled some of 
the best racers America has ever seen, 
and her prodace is much in demand. 

Leonatus is at the track, looking as fino 
as a flute. The stable boys regard his 
mishap as slight, anil think he will be in 
training again next year. The only 
doubt that exists in regard to his reap- 1 
pearance on the turf is as to his ability to j 
stand the exercise necessary to put him 
in the condition in which ho has been this 
vear.

Our Reporter’s Vacation Notes. 



J3uci.NO his JXtmUlcs tlii^ft c^ison, qur Mr. M. 
has taken up Br himself tho task* of satisfying 



our numerous readers that whatever goo l3 are 
manufactured in our goodly city of Itoger Wil- 
liams, aro of as high a grade, and as line in qual* 
ity as can be produced in any spot on the globe. 
Especially is this so when the skilled Pharmacist 
of many years’ experience resolves to extract 
from the finest botanical specimens of tho vege- 
table world the most potent euro for some special 
disease. In proof of his assertion that Frovi- 
dencOjK.I., affords tho best, he relates an interview 
with an acquaintance, given him while sojourn- 
ing temporarily at her residence. She says, 
“About a year I suffered severely from Rheuma- 
tism in my limbs, and Neuralgia in tho head, 
which I endured two or three months with as 
much patience as possible, being under the treat- 
ment of an excellent doctor, and trying many 
kinds of medicine without any marked effect. 
At last a medical friend advised me to try Hunt’s 
Rfemedy, because he attributed my severe suffer- 
ing to the bad condition of my kidneys, which 
were not performing their proper functions, and 
I commenced taking it, and in a fow days tho 
neuralgia had departed, my headache had en- 
tirely disappeared, tho swelling in my limbs and 
joints liad gone, and I havo not had a touch of it 
since. More recently I was troubled with impu- 
rity of tnO DlUUU, WVUVll OUUWCU ttofllt i.. .... .. 

eruptions on my face. I again resorted to Hunt’s 
Remedy, and after taking it a short time was 
completely cured of that complaint. Hunt's 
Remedy has proved very beneficial to mo in at- 
tacks of sick headache, which it always allevl- j 
ates, and I notice the improvement as soon as I 
takd the Remedy. This Remedy has strengthen- 
ing elements, for it has made me feel much 
stronger, and has been very beneficial to my gen- 
eral health. I most heartily recommend it to all 
sufferers liko myself. Mrs. L, G. Tanner, No.

THE MYSTERY SOLVED 



READING NOTICES, 



The Skeleton of Theodore Grimes, the 
Supposed Runaway Colored Boy, 

Found in a Thicket in the Edge of Town, 

Where He Hung Himself Last May. 

Yesterday about noon two colored boys, 
who were hunting wild plums in a little 
thicket on the farm of Mr. R. S. Hender- 
son, just beyond the edge of town, mado a 
horrible discovery. It was the skeleton 
of a man who had either been hanged or 
hung himself, lying underneath a little 
wild cherry tree in tho thicket, the flesh 
all gone, the skull separated from the 
body, and the bone3 gleaming with a spec- 
tral luster. The boys gave the alarm, 
and a number of persons soon visited the 
ghastly spot. Investigation showed the 
remains to be those of Theodore Grimes, 
a colored boy 16 years old, who left the 
home of his parents, on Seventh Street, 
in a huff, on Sunday, the 13th day of 
May, and was supposed by them to have 
gone off as a stable boy with some of the 
jockeys from the races. They say that he 
was not very bright, and had a great fan- 
cy for races aud all matters partaining to 
them. On the Sunday in question ho had 
attended Sunday School with his little 
brother, and in tho afternoon his mother 
ordered him to help her put up the chick- 
ens. lie answered her very insolently, 
and she threatened to tell his father. lie 
then assisted with tho chickens and short- 
ly afterward left tho house, and was nev- 
er seen again. 

The boy hanged himselfto a amall^her- 
ry tree, and it is easy to bo seen how he did 
it. lie got up into a fork in the tree about 
three feet from the ground, and tied the 
rope around tho body of the tree and then 
threw the other end over a limb a little 
higher up. lie then adjusted the nooso 
around his neck and jumped out, 
and it is supposed that the 
fall broke his neck. At any rate, the 
body had pulled off from the head, and 
the skeleton was lying together in a 
sickening heap upon the ground, and the 
rope, with the nooso still intact, was 
swinging lrom tho limb. The remains 
were identified from the clothing by the 
boy’s parents, who seemed horror-strick- 
en over the sad event, and the rope was 
also identified ns one which had been 
given to the boy. The mysterious part 
about the matter is that the thicket, which 
is a small one, stands in an open meadow 
not fifty yajjb from a public road, and 
moreover, laborers have been working in 
the meadow ofi’ and on during the whole 
summer, and persons have been within 
ten' feet of the skeleton, which is near the 
edge of the thicket, at least a hundred 
times. It seems impossible that the body 
should have remained so long undiscover- 
ed, especially as hundreds of people live

Hay Fever. 

From Col. J. Mttidhof, of New York : 
“I have suffered severely for the last ten 
years from Hay Fever ia early and mid- 
summer and in tho fall. I desire in the 
interest of my fallow sufferers to testify 
in favor of lily’s Cream Balm. My short 
use of it demonstrated its efficacy. — J. 
Maidliof, 401 Broadway. It is easily ap- 
plied. 

I can recommend Ely’s Cream Balm to 
all Hay Fever sufferers, it being, in my 
opinion, founded upon experience and a 
sure cure. 1 was nlllicted with Hay Fever 
for twenty-five years, and never before 
found permanent relief. — Webster II. 
Haskins, Marshfield, Vt. 

My brother Myron and myself were 
both cured to all appearance, of Catarrh 
and Hay Fever last July and August. Up 
to this date, December 23, neither have 
had any return of these troubles. Ely's 
Cream Balm was the medicine used. —

ROUGH ON SAM BRYANT. 

An Inside mstory br ine Tutf, n«lat 

ing How a Horse Was Expelled 
and How He Again Got 
Back to the Track. 

The shifting scenes of the turf are 
pregnant with episodes of interest to 
those who are not inititated in the intri- 
cacies of the popular Bport. Therefore, 
the recital of a true story can not fail to 
he ‘instructive to the tyro at least, es- 
pecially when it carries its own moral. 
It may in truth be called a horse play in 
one sceno and three acts; The scene is 
Monmouth Park, and the first act repre- 
sents a race of a mile and three furlongs 
on July 2d, 1881. A fast horse called 
Big Medicine was deliberatly pulled. Tho 
judges pretended not to pay any atten- 
tion to tho matter, but waited patiently for 
further dcvelopements. One weok af- 
terward Big Mcdecine again ap- 
peared, and ho ran a good race with Wil- 
liam Donahue as jockey, his owner this 
time intending to win. This was what 
tho judges waited for as confirmatory 
proof, and Big Medicine, his owner, Sam 
Bryant, and the jockey, Swiney, who rode 
the horse in the previous race, were all 
“ruled off the track forever.” Such was 
the official declaration. Two years elapsed, 
during which timo an effort was made to 
have Bryant and tho horse reinstated, and 
finally, a petition to that effect, signed by 
several intlucntial Kentuckians, includ- 
ing Gov. Blackburn, Senator Beck, and 
Col. M. Lewis Clark, was presented to the 
Monmouth Park Association. Mr. Bryant 
was reinstated, and Big Medicine now ap- 
pears under the name of Charley Marks. 
Act second represents a race of one mile at 
Monmouth Park Tuesday, August 14, 
1883. Charley Marks was ono of tho 
contestants, and as tho start was to be 
made from the front of the grand stand 
thero was a good opportunity to watch 
the movements of all parties. Several 
attempts were mado to get a start, 
and Charley Marks was well for- 
ward at every breakaway. Seat- 
ed on the steps of tho grand stand, 
just below tho reporter, was an individrial 
said to closely resemble Samuel Bryant. 
Ho became indignant at tho possibility of 
Cbarloy Marks getting a good start, and 
shouted at the top of his voice, “Take 
that horse back 1” Tho jockey obeyed the 
voice and never afterward mado an at- 
tempt to get in front. The horse re- 
mained in tho rear with Hickory Jim 
throughout, and was “nowhere” at tho 
finish. Tho last scene of all “that ends 
this strange, eventful history” was ano- 
ther race at Monmouth Park on Saturday 
last. It was a mile nnd an oighth, and 
Charley Marks got off in tho front rauk 
and won the raco quite handily, nnd Col. 
M. Lewis Clark was ono of the judges. As 
the curtain fell upon tho scene tho critics 
compared notes, and it was discovered 
that all of them agreed that the interest 
was unilagging throughout tho horso play. 
The shorn lambs only may guess what the 
verdict was.

ANOTHER CYCLONE. 

Twenty-five Persons Kilted and Many 
Other? Injured. 

Particulars of the Dreadful Disaster. 

St. Paul, Aug. 25.— The cyclone which 
raged at Rochester, Minn., last night is 
reported to have been very severe. 
Twenty-four were reported killed and 
fifty, or more, injured. Vague rumors of 
a train disaster by being blown from the 
track is coming in, but no particulars. 

St. Paul, August 22.— Passengers 
from Owattenna state that twenty-five 
persons were killed in a railroad accident, 
and that thirty-five injured were taken to 
the hospital at Owattanna. The Mayor of i 
Rochester has telegraphed here for assist-   
ance, and states that twenty-five were kill- 1 
ed and about forty injured. Oue-third of i 
the town is an entire wreck, and it is be- i 
lieved from all reports that come in that 
the entire country surrounding Rochester 
is in ruins, and that the killed may reach 
up into the hundreds. 

Winona, Minn., August 22. — At 7 
o’clock a cyclone struck the northern 
part of the City of Rochester, Minn., 
making a clean sweep of an elevator, a 
residence, and railroad engine house. Oth- 
er property along the railroad, was com- 

a destroyed. Mayor Whitton tele- 
s that 24 were killed and 40 were 
wounded. The city is in need of assist- 
ance in the shape of food and clothing. 
The prostrated telegraph wires made it 
difficult to get the particulars. The storm 
swept through the towns of Utica and St. 
Charles in Winona County. Job Thorn- 
ton was killed and several ethers were 
wounded. The report from Dodge County 
indicates much damage with loss of life. 
No particulars have yet been obtained. 
Mayor Ludwig of Winona with a corps 
of surgeons left for Rochester this morn- 
ing. 

Owattanna, Minn., Aug. 22. — Meager 
telegraphic advices were received here 
early this morning of a terrible accident 
which occurred between Rochester and 
Zumbaota on the Rochester and North- 
ern Division of the Chicago and North- 
western Road. On account of wire inter- 
ruption no information could be obtained 
until the arrival of a train from the scene 
of the disaster with thirty-five people who 
had been wounded by the accident.* Of 
this number many seemed to be seriously 
wounded, and all have been taken to the 
hospital. The train wrecked was that 
which leaves Rochester about 4 p. m., 
arriving at Zumbaota about G p. ». It 
was caught in a severe wind and hail 
storm that prevailed in that vicinity 
between four and six o'clock in the eve- 
ning-, nw^wtiile running at high speed was 
lifted from the rails. A gentlemen, who 
has been at the scene of the disaster, 
described it as one of the most horrifying 
railroad accidents ever seen. Every car 
in the train was completely wrecked, and 
almost literally shattered to pieces by the 
sudden stops caused by the train leaving 
the rails, burying the unfortunate passen- 
gers beneath the debris, killing many 
and injuring nearly every person aboard. 
The gentleman stated that nine dead bod- 
ies have been taken from the ruinB, and a 
large number of those who were seriously 
injured have been removed to Rochester 
and Owatonna. At the time he left, the 
work of extricating the unfortunate vic- 
tims was still progressing. The number 
of killed will reach a score.

Railroad Accident. 

Memphis, August 22. — The west-bound 
passenger train on the Memphis and 
Little Rock, which left here at 5 o’clock 
yesterday afternoon, met with an accident 
last night four miles west of Forest 
City, Arkansas. While crossing a short 
trestle, a broken rail caused two second- 
class passenger coaches, baggage, and 
express cars to go through the trestle, 
killing J. B. Saliner, Harry Feldburg, 
two merchants of Cdtton Plant, Ark., and 
John Adair, formerly foreman of the pile 
drivers of the Little Rock Road: James 
White, n stock agent of the Memphis and 
Charleston Railroad had a leg broken. 
Several other passengers received injuries 
but not of a serious nature. The east- 
bound train due here last night at 10 
o clock did not arrive until 1 1 o’clook this 
morning. 

Yellow Fever. 

Washington, August 22. — The result 
of the house inspection ordered by Sur- 
geon Generul Hamilton at Pensacola, 
which commenced this morning, was the 
finding of two cases of yellew fever in a 
sailors’ boarding house on Pclafax Street 
wharf. The Surgeon General directed 
the patients to be removed to the quaran- 
tine hospital on Santa Rosa Island. The 
bedding and clothing were destroyed, and 
the house fumigated and surrounded by a 
guard Some cases were reported by Act- 
ing Assistant Surgeon White to-day, and 
a boat was immediately chartered by the 
Collector of Customs, and the cases re- 
moved to the quarantine hospital •accord- 
ing to orders. • 

Destructive Wind Storm. 
Milwaukee, August 22. — Dispatches 
from the northern and central part of the 
State report great damage from the storm 
of last night. At Stevens Point and in 
Wood County crops, fences, buildings, 
and mill dams were torn to pieces. An 
old man in Wood County was injured by 
thfe flying debris. The towns of Stockton 
and New Hope were visited by a terrible 
hail storm, and the corn, oats, and hops 
were badly damaged. Live stock was 
illed at several points by Hying rails. 
In Bowen County, in and around Green- 
bay, the rain and hail did similar damage. 

Forest Fires. 

Milwaukee, August 22.— An Ashland 
dispatch says : Forest fires have- been 

raging about the city all day, and the 
place had a narrow escape from destruc- 
tion. The mills shut down, and the men 
turned out in gangs to fight the Games. 
The Onrtiha depot naught fire several times, 
but was saved. A hundred men was sent 
on a Omaha gravel train and were dis- 
tributed along the boder of the town with 
eitixens. At 9 r. m. a shower came up 
and the fire was extinguished.

Tobacco Decisions. 

The tobacco division of the Internal 
Revenue Bureau has made several inter- 
esting decisions in regard to the sale of . 
tobacco and oigars. A dealer who does j 
business on Fair grounds must have his ; 
special tax stamp affixed to his stand, and 
cannot send out persons to sell away from 
it without providing each such pedler 
with a separate stamp. Collector Roueia 
of Illinois has been informed, in response | 
to an inquiry, that a manufacturer cau 
not pack tobacco in any but lawfully pre- 
scribed packages for gratuitous distribu- 
tion: but in case of delay in such repack- 
ing, evidence of its having been taken 
from duiy stamped packages may be re- 
quired. Some anxiety has been express- 
ed by manufacturers whose districts have 
been changed under the consolidation 
scheme in regard to their being required 
to give band. The trade generally has 
been rendered quite unsettled by uncer- 
tainty arising in regard to this question, 
and in response to an inquiry, the Com- 
missioner has had a circular-letter ad- 
dressed to the Collectors in several dis- 
tricts interested. The following is the 
effect of this letter : It is not necessary 
to require a new bond to be filed by a ci- 
gar manufacturer if his present bond is 
good and sufficient, and neither the law 
nor the regulations require more than one 
surety to such a bond after a cigar manu- 
facturer has properly qualified by giving i 
a good and sufficient bond and paying a 
special tax. It is not deemed good pol- 
icy to require a new bond or to interfere 
with legal right to manufacture unless 
there is reason to believe that his pres- 
ent bond has become defective or insuffi- 
cient. Comptroller Lawrenc has rendered 
a decision to the effect that no claims for 
rebate on tobacco, cigar or cigarette 
stamps presented after June 30, 1883, can 
be entertained. He holds that the sixty 
days’ grace granted from date, May 1st, 
that the law went into effect, expired on 
June 30th, and that any holders of stamps 
who neglected to present the claims until 
after that date must lose their benefits 
under the law. A large number were re- 
ceived from distant districts, and the 
senders have been notified that their 
claims can not be allowed. 

Railroad Accident. 

Strutiiers, 0. August 21. — By the ne- 
glect of some one the switch at the east 
end ot the Pittsburg and Lake Erie 
yard at llazelton, two miles east of 
Youngstown, 0., a passenger train due 
at Youngstown from Pittsburg at 11:30 a. 
m. ran into the rear end of a freight 
standing on the main track and telescoped 
the caboose and ploughed through a coke 
car completely demolishing both cars and 
badly wrecking the passenger engine. 
The train was running at the rate of thir- 
ty miles an hour. The engineer reversed 
the lever, stood by the throttle, and came 
out of the wreck miraculously, not receiv- 
ing a scratch. The fireman jumped, and 
was badly bruised and cut about the face, 
hands, and body, but his injuries are not 
fatal. Wm. Johnson, an Express Mes- 
senger, was considerably bruised and his 
right arm sprained. Charles Walsh, a 
brakeman, was also severely injured. The 
train took fire but was extinguished with 
buckets by the passengers. There were 
about one hundred passengers on the 
train, but none were injured.

The French in Tonquin. 

London, August 23. — The Times corre- 
spondent at Hong Kong, referring to the 
movement of the French at Tonquin, 
says the enemy are mainly composed of 
Chinese, and are armed with Remington 
rifles. General Bouet commanded the 
left column of French troops, and it is be- 
lieved the enemy’s loss was small. The 
French doctors complain of the want of 
medicine and stores. The operations of 
the French have been stopped for the 
present, the number of troops being in- 
sufficient to attack Sontag and Baerinh, 
which are the strongest positions in the 
Delta. The repulse of the French disheart- 
ened them and encouraged the enemy. Four 
thousand native Christians are being 
armed. Itte generally admitted that the 
French will require a force of 10,000 men 
to be able to cope with the enemy success- 
fully, and the number of gunboats are 
also inadequate. The 500 coolies, who ac- 
companied the French column as carriers, 
fled at the first shot. It is stated that the 
enemy has entrenchments, one behind an- 
ther, over a whole twenty-five miles be- 
tween Ilnnoi and Sontag, but it is thought 
that the Goods have destroyed many. The 
black Gag has been strongly re-enforced 
from Yunnar. No Arramese participated

EXCURSION 



FAVOR OF J. H. ZEILIN & CO. 



The Court ordered, adjudged and decreed that 
the said Defendants and their agents be and 
they hereby are perpetually enjoined and restrained 
from using or causing to be used upon any bonier 
or packages of Liver Medicine any Label or Wrap- 
pa a n.-uiblance or Imitation of the said Labe 
and Wrapper of the Complainants, or any Label or 
Wrapper in resemblance or imitation thereof, and 
from making, selling, or offering for sale any medi- 
cine under the name or title of Dr. A. Q. Simmons   
Liver Medicine, or ot Dr. Simmons Liver Regula- 
tor or Medicine, or Dr. A. Q. Simmons Liver Regu- 
lator or Medicine, and from using the name or 
word Simmons or the fac simile signature of A. Q. 
Simmons, or in any way upon any bottle or pack 
ages of Liver Medicine or of medicine made or ad- 
vertised or sold for the Liver. 

AN OUTRAGE. 

Owing to the great popularity of Simmons 
Liver Regulator and its nudoubted curative 
power, imitators throughout the country are 
manufacturing worthless imitations under the 
shadow of its good name, so garbled as to mislead 
those who are not on their guard. We most earn- 
estly beg the public to aid us in our efforts to pro- 
tect their health and help us in our task of bring- 
ing these unprincipled imposters to the liar of Jus- 
tice. Buy no Simmons Elver Regulator unless en- 
cased in a Wrapper having a large red Z in 
the center and the signature of J. II. Zeilin A Co. 
ou the side. Before you buy, scrutinize the package 
most carefully for the above signs of genuineness 
The remedy to detect fraud is in your own hands. 
Do not allow some other substitute to be palmed oil 
under a similar sounding najne. 

TIS DANGEROUS 

! To trifle with health, to risk breaking down 
a constitution or undermine strepgth by ex- 
perimenting with medicine that is doubtful or 
cheap, made by adventurers, especially that made 
as substitute for other medicine which is of great 
reputation, and recommended nftcr years of trial 
by such reliable people as Bishop Pierce, lion. 
Alexander II. Stephens, lion. John Gill Shorter, 
Bishop Beckwith, lion. John B. Gordon, and hosts 
of others oi such high integrity and undoubted in- 
telligence who would not deceive. They who copy, 
imitate, substitute or deceive, are guilty of crime. 
The lswjLof the land have decided that the only 
Simmons Liver Regulator or Medicine legitimately 
made and legally entitled to name and fame is that 
manufactured by J. If. Zeilin A Co.; all others 
are frauds aud counterfeits.

During the paying off of some railroad 
hands yesterday a dispute arose about a 
wncer which culminated in a riot in 
which a Hungarian named Peter Yeder 
was killed and two fellow-workmen were 
shot, and Tom Kearney, an Irishman, was 
unmercifully beaten. No arrests have 
been made, but Sheriff Anderson and a 
posse are on hand and will prob- 
ably make some arrests to-day. No 
further trouble is anticipated. 

Shot for Indecent Conduct. 

Troy, N. Y., August 23.— Dr T. R.

Louisville, August 24. — At 8 o'clock 
this morning passenger train No. 2 from 
Nashville to Louisville at Lebanon Junc- 
tion, about twenty-five miles out from 
this city, came in collision with the rear 
end of a freight train that was backing 
onto a side track. The freight was heav- 
ily loaded and the engine recoiled, tel- 
escoping the tender and baggage cnr. 
No passengers were injured, but Engineer 
Clarence Gifford was badly crushed and 
will probably die. Fireman Kidd also re- 
ceived serious injuries. The wreck causes 
the delay of trains.

make these double trains the grandest Excursion 
evout io railroad annals, arid to this end will call 
into |day all the enormous resource of their grtat

M unmet p atloat, and which will literallv tie a blaze 
of electrical Illumination. ThejRoyal Steamer will 
boiscoited up the harbor by from sixty to eighty 
tug boats, four abreast, and each carrying electric 
lights in various colors. From ail sides if the har- 
bor Hreworks in great profit-ion will he discharged 
from sicclal barge* stationed f.ir such purpose, and 
the spectacle as a whole will be an unprecedented 
one.

and soldiers covered « ith Metric Lights in differ- 
ent colors; horses with electrical plumes, and the

brother Dan can be found behind the bar. 

Don’t You Forget It. 

The Transcript yesterday stated that 
Judge Jewell had gone to Frankfort the

We learn, on the contrary, that instead of 
failing to get Jone pardon, Judgo Jewell 
succeeded in getting about twenty. 

Decorate. 

Several business men have followed our 
advice and decorated their premises. Now, 
let others follow. This morning is not too 
late, and if everybody will go to work, 
the city can be beautifully decorated be- 
fore the Cincinnati and Covington people 
get in. 

Wo notice the arrival of Mr. G. C. 
Henry, the stylish cutter of Louis & 
Gus Straus, who has been absent for the 
benefit of h!s health. Persons who know, 
say that Henry’s cutting has never been

say to his friends to call early to avoid 
the rush. Ilis house is the only one who 
has a complete stock of new Fall goods.

Fortunate Chance of a Lieut. Chance, 
U. S. A. 

Lieut. Josiah Chance of the 17th Regi- 
ment Infantry, U. S. Army, at the close 
of the late war, having served entirely 
through it, was commissioned in the reg- 
ular service. Eleven years ago he was 
stationed at Bismarck, and here he has 
been ever since. Under his superintend- 
ence Camp Hancock was built, and the 
present Fort Lincoln, lie shook hands 
with the gal'ant Custer when he left to 
march to death, and one of the first tears 
to fall over his sad fate fell from Lieut 
Chance. At present lie is nt Lincoln, 
and no officer at the fort is held in Letter 
esteem than he. lie drew $30,009 in the 
July drawing of the Louisiana State Lot- 
tery, at a cost of 82. Every Bismarcker 
knows him, and tho Tribune heard but 
one expression : “Good ! It couldn't 

have fallen to a better man.” He says he 
will invest it in Dakota dirt, and will re- 
main in the service. Through the Bis- 
marck National Bank he drew on New 
Orleans for his $30,000. Lieut. Chance 
held two-fifths of ticket No. 37,348. The 
ticket drew the capital prize of 875, 000.

The Fire Yesterday. 

At 9 o’clock yesterday morning a fire 
broko out in the brick house on High 
Street, near Spring, owned by Adolph S. 
Ochs, of the Chattanooga Times, and oc- 
cupied by two families — those of Rolfcrt 
Freeman and William Carter. The fire 
originated from Freeman’s cooking stove 
in tho second story, and soon spread, 
burning off tho roof and damaging the 
building to the extent of $500 er $600. 
The houso is insured in the Standard, of 
London, for $2,000. Most of Freeman’s 
and Carter’s household effects were saved. 

The ilatnes spread to tho .adjoining 
house, owned by Squire L. L. Royalty, 
and occupied by J. P. Howard as a board- 
ing houso. The house is in. 
sured in tho North British for 
$1,000, and the loss will amount to 
probably $309 or $400. Mr. Howard's 
effects were removed without loss, oxoept 
what was occasioned by rough handling. 

The fire department was promptly on 
hand at this fire, and did splendid work. 
They soon had the fire under control and 
prevented it from spreading.
