I see by the papers tbat some of our
citizens are being called upon to become
members of the next Legislature. The
people of our state have not heretofore
given sufficient attention to this matter.
If we want good laws, we must select
able, conscientious, fearless men to make
our laws, and this cannot and will not
be done unless some interest is taken in
the selection of the man or men who
make our laws. We must wake up, and
remember that it is our own fault and
neglect if the welfare of all the people
is not well guarded.
It is too late to complain after an op
prestive law is passed. See to it tbat
the right man is sent to Frankfort and
there will not be any cause for com
plaint. No man should be voted for who
is under the control or influence of any
combination, trust or Incorporation.
Nor should any man be considered who
is not broad enough to see and know
what law or laws will be for the interest
of the whole people. If necessary,- put
questions to the candidates and make
them speak out and if they will not do
this, then don't vote for them. Madison
couoty is a great county. It has an in
telligent population and it should have
a capable, strong, honest man to repre
sent her next, winter and to look after her
interest in all legislation that may be
proposed. An Old Democrat.

Circuit Court Adjourns.
Circuit court made its final adjourn
ment Thursday, after a session of near
ly three weeks. Not a great deal ot im
portant work was disposed of, but quite
a number of minor cases, such as illicit
whisky selling, gaming, carrying con
cealed weapons and the like, were tried.
Very little civil business occupied the
attention of the court.
During its sitting the grand jury found
and returned 48 indictments. Many of
them were for' selling whisky, several
for selling cocaine and a few each for
gaming and carrying concealed deadly
weapons. In its report the condition
of the jail was referred to. The grand
jurors charged that the jail is in a fil hy
and unsanitary condition, that the walls
are black and bespattered with tobacco
juice, the floors and corners are full of
dirt, etc. eto. The further charge is
made that vermin exist in the bastile.
After reading the report we called on
Jailor Jones, who had heard of the
charge. Questioned about the condition
of the jail, he said: "We scour the jail
every Thursday morning from top to
bottom and sweep it every day. Ia the
summer we scour twice a week and
sometimes oftener, if U is necessary. I
am taking care of the jail as I was when
other grand juries visited it and com
plimented the condition of the institu
tion. The'grand jury made its visit
early Wednesday morning before the
jail had been swept and the day Wore
the weekly scouring, and I am not sur
prised tiiat they found things somewhat
out of order. Regarding' the existence
of vermin, I will say that we make a
hard fight against such a thing. Pris
oners have frequently been put in with
the pesky insects on them, but we inva
riably give them a good clerning as soon
as possible. Had the jurors only made
their visit ar'ter, instead of before, the
regular cleaning-up hour I am confident
that no such report would have been

Green Million Dies ot His In
juries. Mr. Green Million, who was horribly
injured by falling on train No. 31 sever
al miles this side of Winchester Thurs
day morning, died of his injuries at Pai
tie A. Clay Infirmary at 8:10 that even
ing. He was conscious for only a short
time and while be told those at his bed
side he fell off train 31, he gave no other
particulars. He went over on the 6:30
train the morning before. Mr. Million,
who had been engaged as salesman in
the store of Covington Jb Banks, of this
city, for a long time, and numbered bis
friends by his acquintances, was found
by the northbound Cincinnati train on
Thursday morning and taken to Win
chester, where medical attention was
given him. It was found that bis right
arm and right lei; were badly mangled
and that there were other injuries. The
L. & N. made up a special train and
sent the wounded man to this city and
he was taken to the Pattie A. Clay In
firmary, where physicians were sum
moned. It was clearly seen that the
chances of his recovery were few and
no operation was performed. How or
why he fell from the train may never
be known. The case is one of the sad
dest we have had to chronicle in many
years, and unbounded sympathy goes
out to the mother, Mrs. Thomas Million,
and the five sisters, who survive him.
May the Giver of all good and perfects
gifts give them strength to bear the
fearful blow. Mr. -Million was 23 years
old and a fine young man; handsome
and pleasing in manners and the friend
of every one. He will be misseJ, sadly
missed, by all. but the mother, proud of

McCreary Likely Will Not Run
The following is from the Political
Page of the Louisville Times and our
readers can take it for what it is worth:
''A number of Frankfort politicians
who have been in Louisville this week
expressed themselves as of the opinion
that Gov. McCreary would decline the
issue and stay out of the race for U. S.
Senator. They say tbat everything was
"ribbed up" for the Governor to toss bis
hat in the ring, but that certain devel
opments have come about thet make it
extremely unlikely that he will become
candidate for the toga. On the other
hand there are those wjio insist that be
is already in the race for Senator and is
reserving his official announcement to
suit his own good time."

Senator Stephenson, who is said to be
the richest man in the Senate, and who
loves to talk about his money, showed
some of the gaping Senate employes a
check for $1,500,000. It was in pay
ment of lumber and timber lands sold
to a Louisiana company.
It appeared "Uncle Ike" had carried
the check several days. One employe
protested that he was too careless with
it and was likely to lose it.
"What if Id id?" asked the lumber
man. "Nobody could cash it."
