Every one who haa attended a demo
cratic convention in Louisville in the
last ten years will remember the venerable
form of David A.
who was always on hand to bid
the boys God epoed in the pood old cause
in which he had fought for so many
years. Well, the old gentleman will bo
seen no more. He was gathered to his
fathers Tuesday morning last, after mi
honorable career of 93 years. He was
born in Louisa county, Virginia, in 1800
and moved to Kentucky when a boy.
Ho entered political life young and for
13 terms was a member of tho Legislature,
once being honored with the
He was a member of the constitutional
convention of MO'oO and was
Territorial governor af New Mexico from
JSWtolSGT. His chief claim to fame,
however, wad that he succeeded Henry
Clay in the U. S. Senate, on the death of
the great Commoner, by appointment of
the governor of Kentucky. He retired
from politic in 1SS5 and has since lived
quietly and pleasantly on his farm in
Jefferson county, near Louisville.
Organized labor got both its eyes
blacked by decisions of the lT. S. courts
this week. An engineer was fined at
Cleveland for contempt in refusing to
pull freight from a boycotted road, the
decision declaring in effect that an engineer
may quit at any time in good
faith, but when out on a run must complete
his run. The judge holds that the
Inter-State Commerce law binds the
railroads to do certain things and it
ought to be equally binding on their employees.
The other decision, if sustained,
will tako from labor its most powerful
weapon, the boycott. Judge Taft
promptly granted an injunction restraining
Chief Arthur from promulgating
the boycott rule of tho Brotherhood
of Engineers, declaring that "if it he en
forced the members enter into a criminal
conspiracy against the railroad company
and their organization in that case be-
Municipal elections were held in Ohio
Monday and this is the way the Enquirer
headlines the result: We've got 'em
again, lue otlier fellows make a snowing
in spots, but the sweep of democracy
is almost clean. Cleveland mot Grover)
elects a democratic nrnyor. Columbus
(not Chris) remains in the popular
column. Dayton democrats sweep everything
worth having. Springfield
keeps step to the music of democracy,
and even Toledo shows an inclination to
enter the light. Stenbenville republicans
elect a dead man to office. Results
in the various cities and towns throughout
Ohio that are gratifying to deraoc
It was given out some time ago with
much show of authority that Mr. Cleveland
would appoint no ex-office holders
and but few if any editors. Both of
these rules were smashed Tuesday, when
he appointed H. C. Ashton, editor of the
Flemingsburg Democrat and post-master
under his former administration, to
the position again. This will e.iuse hope
to spring eternah in the hearts of the
other ex's, of whom our friend, Bro. J.
It Marre, of the is
one of which, and who of all men we
trust will not be disappointed. He made
Danville a capital post-master, and
ought to be permitted to do so again.
Chicago has again demonstrated that
she is democratic to the bone. Carter
Harrison was elected mayor of the city
for the fifth time Monday by a plurality
over the allied republican and citizens'
ticket, of 20,000. The entire democratic
ticket was also elected by about the same
plurality. Tho city is to be congratulated
that a democrat and a Kentuckian
will do the honors during the World's
Tiik Legislature is still hammering on
a bill to reduce the salaries of circuit
judges from $3,000 to $2, -100. It had better
be at more important business. The
present salary is small enough for a good
man, and no other kind ought ever to
occupy the bench, with the forluuesand
lives of mon largely in their bauds.
Dkmoouats shou'd bear in mind that
to-morrow afternoon, Sth, has been fixed
by the State Central Committee for the
election of a committeeman in each pro
cinct. Don't fail to go to your regular
vvoting place and cast your vote for the

"Uncus Job" Alkxanukr, who ubed
to be uo successful a hotel keeper, seems
to be playing in bad luck as his days ou
earth dwin lie in number. He haa just
been forced to assign again, nlsnew venture,
tho Merchants' Hotel, Louisville,
proving a flat failure.
With the legislature costing $1,000 a
day and the convicts f 350, bankruptcy
will soon begin to stare the State in tho
face. The worst feature is that neither
body is doing anything to assist in liquidating
Turt fact that u nun can htand up in a
prize ring and knock another out in so
many round, dors not make a theatrical
actor of him, but managers recognizing
that they are drawing cards, have
very willingly given them a chuuee.
Consequently we have hid Sullivan,
Corbett and such gentry ail nauseam.
The business ought to stop with the
prize lighters, but it doesn't. Their
wives, their sisters, thoir cousins and
their aunts, who think the prowess of
their relatives has brought them into no
tice, are now seeking histronic honors.
Mrs. Coroett is tho latest debutante, and
but for the fact that she is tho wife of
the champion, would be pronounced
such an utter failure that she would
hardly ever appear again.
It really begins to look like Frankfort
is to lose the State Capital. A largo majority
of the legislators intotviewed have
expressed themselves in favor of removal,
with a nip nnd tuck sentiment be
tween Louisville and Lexington. Our
member, Hon. D. B. Klmistou, favors
Lexington. If money talks, though, as it
usually does, it will bo hard to resist
Louisville's million-dollar offer.
Tiierk is no sentimental humbuggery
about our Grover. He fired Bob Lincoln
last week and now Fred Grant has
been made to walk tho plank. He believes
in the good old democratic idea
that there should be no
aristocracy in this country and that a
man is not entitled to ofiico simply be
cause hia daddy held one creditably.
Op tho noted "300" who held out for a
third term for Grant, 03 are dead. A reunion
and a banquet at Washington has
bea arranged for tho 2oth and over 100
have accepted invitations to it. Col. W.
O. Bradley is the only ono of tliH band

Col. Walton, of tint most excellent
papei, tho Interior Journal, celebrated
his 01st birthday last Sunday and very
gracefully tells of it in these stirringly
truthful word?: Here follows tho conversation
with the old lady, published
in last Friday's paper, which of course
had no reference to the editor. No one
would take him to be over 2o. Those
whoss pleasure it is to know the chivalrous
and accomplished editor of the best
all-round piper in Kentucky will at
once concede that the lady was, very
naturally, deceived bv his youthful ap
pearance; lor, really, waiton uoes not
look to be much more than 50, though
many will be surprised to hear the
from his own lips that he is 01.
But herd's to yon, old man; may you
live to see your 01st; and, if you are no
less deserving the good will of your
friends then than you are now, you
ought to count yourself a happy man.

in his room in the third story over Row I

good health and progressed gradually to

ago, when ono night Hitks mkb
seated in his room, he noticed that one
of his wards had become very much ex-
c'.ted. It looked around wildly for n
moment and then ran across the room
three or four times like a rare horie,
winding up by bolting agiiusttln wul!
and falling it peemed in n dying
tion. It did not die, however, but lay
four or live days perfectly helpless, ex
cept th it it could raise its head and eat.
Its body ami limbs seemed paralyzed.
