The signs of tfio times seems to in
dicato that an extra session of the
Kentuckr Legislature will bo called
to meet about the 1st of May.
The River and Hnrbor bill as
passed last Monday at Washington,
D. 0., contained an appropriation
of $43,000 for Rough River.
This amount it is said is nmplo funds
to complete thoTocks.
We uow have all the money ap
propriated necessary to complete tho
locks and dam on Rough River.
Tho next thing in order is tho ex
tension of tho Irvincton railroad
from Fordsvillo to Hartford.
A. V. JaniCS WAS
renominated for Senator by the Re
publicans at Beaver Dam last Fri
day. We are informed that there
were two delegates each, from Butler
and Muhlenberg counties.
The wrangles in the Republican
Convention held hero last Thursday
and Saturday reminded us very
much of several small boys around
an apple tree with a lone applo on it.
Every boy with a club in his hand
fighting manfully for it and "the
divil take the hindmost."
Now that it is certain that Uncle
Sam will furnish the required
amount to complete the locks on
Rough river and boats will be plying
the waters between here and
Evansvillo by fall, it can bo truth
fully said that Hartford is on tho
eve of one of tho biggest booms it
ever experienced. J
There has been no election called
in the Louisville Senatorial District,
made vacant by the death of Representative
Weisenger, which is a
Democratic District. Elections have
been called in the Seventh and
Thirteenth Senatorial Districts which
are considered safely Republican.
Read between the lines and see the
methods of the "Reformers."
The policy of the Republican administration
of Kentucky in using
It seems that tho Democratic
party of the Seventh Senatorial District,
composed of tho counties of
Muhlenberg, Butler and Ohio, havo
seen proper in their wisdom, not to
place any candidate in the field and
therefore tbe Democracy of this Dis
trict will have to take choice between
Dr. (Bayonet) James
and Esq. R. T. Render, a Democratic-Populist.
As for us, wo
prefer tho latter. Democrats,
take your choice.
The election of Esq. R. T. Ren-der.
would virtually put a quietus on
a repetition of the recent contest for
tho U. S. Senatorial plum, which
cost the State nearly 8100,000. The
greater portion of which was and
will have to be paid by tho horny
handed farmers. Elect Dr. James
and tho Senatorial contest is almost
certain to be fought over again and
it might bo well to remember that
tho Legislature, while in sepaipn,
cost 81,000 a day and not
be limit(lton sixty days session
A Republican County Judge of
Jefferson county, declared the" sheriffs
ofRco held by a Democratic officer
vacant and appointed a Republican
in his stead. Mr. 1'ihuiz,
the deposed sheriff appealed tho case
to the Circuit Court and Judge
Field decided thnt the Democratic
officer had been illegally ousted and
should be reinstated. Mr. Schufl',
who had been appointed by Judge
Richio took tho case to tho Court of
Appeals where a decision was rendered
last Thursday sustaining
Judge Field nnd re-instating Mr.
Dit. A. D. James, tho Republican
nominee for Senator from this tho
Seventh Senatorial District, will
have a thing or two to explain to
the law-abiding pcoplo before they
will cast their ballots for him on the
21st of this month. Not the least
among which is why, after ho was
legally expelled from the recent
Kentucky Senate, did he have himself
surrounded by the militia, 400
strong, if it was not in order that ho
might cast his vote for a Republican
U. S. Senator contrary to law. Tho
Doctor lias, by bis own action in having
a special election called and announcing
himself a caudidato for re
tempting to cast an illegal vote for U.
8. Senator, the militia being on hand
to protect him. Tho only .reason
this vote was not cast, was that Dun-lap
refused to qualify.
the borrowine of 8500,000, and the
levying of an additional tax of ten
cents on the $100 worth of property
of this State and the Senate which
had a Democratic majority failed
to pass it. Tho Senate may and
doubtles3 did have a dual reason for
refusing to passed the bill. The
first, being that the people of the
State are already overburdened with
taxation and the second was that
they did not propose to mako laws at
the point of bayonets.
The Frankfort Capital in speaking
of the decision of the United States
Supremo Court in tho case of the
L. & N. Railroad against the State
of Kentucky pays ex-Governor
Brown a deserved compliment, all
of which we heartily indorse:
The U. S.Supreme Court's affirmation
of tho Kentucky Court of Appeals, in
tho case of tho L. & N. Railroad against
tho Stato of Kentucky ends what Chief
Justice Pryor onco told Gov. Brown,
was tho most important case ever decided
by tho Court of Appeals. Tbe
action of tho highest court of the land
rellccts credit on tho Kentucky Court
of Appeals, and the lawyers for the
Commonwealth, but to no singlo man is
ubuiueu ciuuh uuo us in iuu
ex-Governor of Kentucky, lion.
John Yonng brown. Ho it was who
forced tho bringing of tho suit: who
all the cash receipts of revenue for U00k charge of the case, employed his
the payment of present officials and
present expenses (the cost of militia
included) instead of paying the
claims in prorata or in the order in
which they were created, is another
"reform" we heard so much talk
about last fall.
The Republican speakers, in
floundering nrouud in search of
something to excuso their actions in
the recent Legislature in not having
redeemed a singlo pledge mado
to their constituency, liavo laid
the blame on tho Senato which had
a Democratic majority. Thoy say
that the Senate refused to pass tho
bill authorizing tno borrowing of
$500,000, and levying an additional
tax of 10 cents on tho 8100 worth
of taxable property in tho State.
Granting they did, wo fail to find
wherejany of the Republican Senators
mado any effort to havo the bill
passed. If thoy wanted to place this
extra burden on tho State, why
did not somo of the Republican Sen
ators mako an effort to pass it?
When it is said that tho Democratic
Senato of Kentucky is responsible
for tho failure of the receut
Kentucky Legislature to
anything,-the one saying this,
is woefully mistaken or don't care
what he says. It is true that the
Lower House ot the General As
scmbly which had a Republican
majority passed a bill authorizing
own counsel and fought it ont with dig
nity asaGovernor,but with characteristic
determination as a man. Some
thought the State had no case, and that
tho Governor's unbroken line of legal
victories, had at last reached a
"bieak." but Gov. Brown said he
"would stake his administration on tho
result," and the latter ends tbe most
exceptionally magnificent record as a
constitutional lawyer over made by a
Governor or other official of Kentucky.
While thero may be too many
claims allowed to County Judges,
Police Judges and Juctices of the
Pence, yet wo have an idea that
Mr. Lester could have made it more
profitable to the State to have be
gun higher up. Why stop tho bung
and knock the head out? If these
aro to be test cases as the following
O. W. Lester, Stato Inspector ond
Examiner, is preparing to strike terror
to a big crowd of police judges, county
judges and justices of tho peace. He
is preparing a report upon tho claims of
these officials, and is preparing to recommend
that about half of tho claims
they havo mado and generally havo allowed,
for holding oxamining courts, bo
disallowed. If tho report of tho inspector
is upheld, the expenses of this
branch of government will bo very
greatly decreased, and tho cuts aro so
big and radical that tho Court of Appeals
is nearly certain to havo to pass
upon the question raised, boforo tho
litigation, sure to follow, ends, Ex.

How They Save Money.
On motion of Congressman Evans
from tho Louisvillo District, $33,(100 of
Undo Sam's money tho 2, inst.,was voted
tho Howard University, a colored institution
at Washington City. This bill
was tacked on to tho Sundry Civil Bill,
by Mr. Evans, and theroby escaped
tho attention of most all tho members.
Mr. Hainer (Rep., Neb.) was given
an opportunity to attack tho amendment
for tho Howard University. Mr.
Hainer, who led tho successful fight
against appropriations for scotarian
charitablo institutions in tho District of
Columbia Appropriation Bill, explained
that tho amendment was adopted yesterday
whilo ho was temporarily absont
from tho hall and without opposition,
and in n way which mado it seem probable,
that it was not obnoxious to the
election, admitted that he was at-'for the higher education of colored
people Why should colored pcoplo bo
given higher education at public
if white pcoplo aro not? What
oxcuso could mombors givo? He favored
higher education, but tho Government
had no right Jo singlo a particular
pcot, race, creed or social olass. Favor
itism had no placo in any intelligent
republic Hfl charged that tho institu
tion was engaged in missionary work in
"I submit," said he, "that our missionary
work had bettor bo dono at
homo. Wo can not justify our action
in appropriating money for evangelizing
tho pcoplo of Africa." This was an
insidions attempt to commit Congress
again to a principle that had in the past
taken millions upon millions from tho
coffers of tho Government for tho bene
fit of sectarian institntions. From 1871
to 1890 in tho District of Columbia

Members Jiad told him that there
wcro colored voters in their districts
and they eould not afford to vote
against tho amendment. There was a
low cstimato to bo placed upon a race
that had given tho country Frederick
Donglas and Booker Washington.

wants its rights. Tho colored people

and respectfully dedicated to Governor
ONLT EDITOns AND rHEACIIEIIS.
It is now thonght that the shortage in
the Midway, Ky., deposit bank will
reach $70,000. What a tempting thing
money is, only editors and preachers
being proof against snch worldly
you AW5 mom.
It is disgusting to hear persons speak
scornfully of girls who havo to work
for a living. No scnsiblo man is dazzled
by tho glitter of a jeweled band, a
gold bracelet, or a watch bought on
"tick" perhaps. All these havo not so
much fascination as a pleasant disposition,
a happy, intelligent face, a well-
cooked meal and a glistening, well-ironed
shiit front. A dimpled chin and
sunny faco in the kitchen are worth a
dozen "banged" millinery singers in
tho parlor pawing ivory and screeching
"A Flower from my Angel Mother's
Grave," when very likely tho poor old
woman is hanging out tho washing in
tho back yard. It is all right to know
how to appear as a cultured, refined
and entertaining lady, but to know
how to be a housekeeper, even if the
work has to bo superintended only, is
far better than snpeificial airs. Just
as Many a farmer wob spoiled by the
allurements of tho pulpit or editorial
sanctum so is many a housekeeper
eliminated from tho world by desire
to waste time in miserable attemps
to interpret the aspirations of tho masters.
