The actual standing of the candidates
in the 11th so far as uncontested votes
are concerned is as follows: Wilson
heads the list with ."0, Finley ha3 ;'!',
Nell 23, Boreinp II and Adams 12. It
will take 101 votes to nominate and the
fun will as to who shall get the
countiesof Pulaski, Whitley, Harlan, Terry
and Leslie, there beint; two delegations
.r jiii each. If Wilso i, Horeing and
Nell combine they can name the presiding
officers and this they will, no doubt,
do. Chairman Colison will, in all
bilitv. decide that the contested ilulega
t.ous shall take no part till the commit-
tee on credentials has passed on their
claims. The convention, which will be
called to order at noon to-day, is goinc
be the largest ever held in this part of
the State and London will be taxed to
the utmost to entertain the delegates.
The citizens have, however, without regard
to politics, opened their houses and
asked that the delegates be assigned
Tiik president of the board of commissioners
announces that the buildings of
the Kentucky Institution for the
Training of Feeble Minded Children,
which were destroyed by lire on
May .1, ISSi), have been rebuilt, ami enlarged,
so that there is now room for 100
more children. Any feeble minded
child, a citizen of Kentucky, over 0 and
under IS years of age, is entitled to the
benefits of the institution. A letter addressed
to Dr. John Q. A, Stewart, .Superintendent,
Frankfort, will secure the
necessary papers and all information in
reference to the admission of applicants,
or Hon. W. II. Miller will secure the ad-
mission should any patent or guardian j
in this county wish to accept the benefits !
Kditor Lewis, of the Somerset Republican,
is evidently not for Finley. Says
he: "While Finley's boodle captured
Wayne, Metcalf and Russell from Nell
and Adams, those gentlemen still have
a good fighting chance. The defeat of
Finley is a foregone conclusion. The
big split in his own county has sounded
his political death knell." Lewis led a
.nit in his own county against the
trying to run rough-shod over
the country people, although he thought
Trimble justly entitled to the county.
As the phrenologists would piy, the
bump of combatitiveness is about as
lirgely developed on Bro. Lewis as in
any man in Kentucky. He had rather
be in a squall any time than have plain
The Baibourville News denies the story
of the Critic about Barbourville being
on the down grade and says it was
prompted by malice on the part of Alexander
Campbell Thompson, who was
kicked out of the News olfice for
and of "Daniel K. O'te'ullivan,
who oue time not long since, not longer
than last spring, was about to be thrashed
by Gov. Jaim 8 Givens over some attack
made upon the governor by this
second-class sheet aforesaid." It is a
pretty tight as it stands and our only desire
is that the stockholders may come
ont on top.
Ki.izauktiitown is about to demonstrate,
what has been demonstrated
times without number, that thieo papers
can not live in a one-paper town. The
Welcome Tidings' editors have skipped
out and the Hardin County Independent
is so overpowered with law suits that its
,'ditora had better give up and quit before
they get woise oil'. Meantime the
old reliable News is Bailing right along,
proud of its prestige and furnishing an
other example of the survival of the tit-test.
Q'he McKinley tariff bill as reported
by the conference committee, passed the
House Saturday 152 to SI. A gentleman
who has studied tho bill and figured it
out says it will add an annual tax of $1
to every man, womau and child in the
country. The bill will go at once to the
Senate, which will pass it as soon as possible,
though it will not likely be able to
do so by to-day, upon which the House
lias voted to finally adjourn.
The con. con. doesn't seem to want to
jjet down to business. Col. Young from
his committee reported a rseolution providing
that no new counties shall be
created with less than 100 square miles
and 10,000 inhabitants, and asked that
the question be acted on at once, but the
body was not ready to settle oven this
easy question. Meantime, the tide of
resolutions continues to flow, with as
yet no sign of an ebb.
Tueue is even more difference in their
statesmanship than in their marksman

1 r is said to be best never to count the
chickens before they are hatched and
ordinarily it is the safest plan to pursue
but it seems now so certain that the
next Xationil House of Representatives
will be democratic that its probable
officers are already being discussed. For
speaker our excellent congressman, Ho v.
McCreary, is being prominently mentioned
all over the country and wherever
his peculiar fitness for the position is
known he has ardent supporters. In
our last issue we referred to complimentary
notices of him in connection with
the speakership in the Boston Tost and
Louisville Times and now a Washington
paper comes with even a more flattering
article and stronger endorsement of the
proposed candidacy. There is no question
that Gov. McCreary is one of the
best equipped men in Congress for
speaker or that, in the almost absolute
certainty of a democratic House, he will
have a formidable following for the position.
At a bauouet uiven in iiopor of .Mr.
Watterson by the Massachusetts Keform
Club at Boston, covers were laid for :500
J nd many prominent tanll reformers
were present. Mr. Watterson responded
to the toast -.Sectionalism and as
al hail something to say and said it beau
tifully and eloquently. He appealed to
the people of the North to disregard the
sectional misrepresentations made by
the politicians in the interest of a party
and cease the perpetual war between
kinsmen who haven common inheritance
and the destiny of a great country in
their keeping. The speaker touched, of
course, on the tariff and in vigorous language
gave earnest of the faith that is in
Some of the newspaper men, who accepted
the hospitality of the
Town Company, have not had a line
about it in their paper. Common
tesv demands some recognition of the
entertainmeut, but unfortunately the
nverage country editor seems to labor
under tho delusion .that the earth and
the fullness thereof are his without asking
and without thanks.
