Thousands of Votes Polled
Thousands and thousands ot votes

n place on the new Prison commis
sion, was in 1'rankftul ycslerduy to
see the Governor. It has been stat
ed several times on what seems to be
reliable authority that Senntor Hub
ble has been promised a place on the
Commission, and the report here is
that he will be one of those named
by the Governor next week. Senator
Hubble was one of the most promi
nent members of the Senate nt the
last two terms, and has been a closp
friend of Gov. McCrenry. There nre
those who profess to know, who in
sist that Senntor Hubble is certain
to be one of the commissioners. Sev
eral candidates for one of the places
on the Commission arc doing some
tnll hustling and the Governor has
his hands full deciding whom he will
nppoint."

Jury Awards W. V. Keeton that Sum
After Hard Fight Through
Two Courts
The celebrated "road case" which
has consumed about as much time
in court and totalled about as much
in costs as the famous "hog cuse"
in Boyle county, was finnlly decided
by a jury in Circuit Court Monday,
which handed down a judgment,
awarding W. V. Keeton, of the Hub
ble community the sum of $25 as
damages done to his property by the
ulii'ini; of l-20th of an acre frois
his property in order to change the
turnpike so as to permit the building
of a bridge over Hanging Fork
Creek. The trial in the circuit court
was on appeal from a judgment of
the county court which gave a judg
ment of $25 in favor of Mr. Keeton
for damage to his land. Mr. Keeton
asked for $500 damages for his loss,
but lost both below and in the high
er court.
Innumerable witnesses were intro
