stated in last issue of The Record, to
see Judge Sai fiey about replacing the
guards at the gates. As state 1 before

Stanford the affidavit was forthcoming
and, of course, Jude Saufley had to

Nearly all arrangements have been
completed for the Declamatary Con
test to be given at the Court House on
the evening of August 9th. The ad
mission to all parts of the house will
be only twenty-five cents, and seats
may be securel at Stormes drug store
now. Miss Julia Reid, who has the
the matter in charge, has succeeded in
getting together an excellent list of
speakers and the contest promises to
be the best ever given in Lancaster. It
is for the benefit of the Baptist church
and should be well patronized.
The Itauk Taxes.
Representatives o; the local banks
met with the City Council to discuss
the tax question. It was agreed by the
Council to accept the taxes due for '97
and 1803, two years, and run back no
further. This will be perfectly agree
able to all right thinking people, as to
extend the taxes bae'e further would
put a tremendous burden on the banks,
and it would not be right to put any
more burden on them than on an indi

Crab Orchard Springs.
A Record representative had the
pleasure of spending Sunday at Crab
Orchard Springs. For the past year
or so this famous old resort has been
steadily winning back its reputation
and people from all over the country
have learned that they can now go
there and get the best fare and treat
ment to be found anywhere. There
are now some-15) guests there and the
crowd is made up of the very best-people.
For a vacation which will be
perfect socially and in physical bene
fits, we know of no better place to vis
it than Crab Orchard Sprinsr.
Will Not be Here.
We got a little mixed up on Bro.
Gowen's card last week and said lie
would preach Sunday. 'W e have re
ceived another card fr.m our good
friend saying he will not be here next
Sunday, and we can make affidavit to
the correctness of this announcement
if there are any doubting Thomases.
He says he saw the St Louis on her
way from delivering Cervera to An
napolis, and that there were six of
Watson's colliers there when he wrote.
He has seen many of those wounded at
Santiago en route to the hospitals,and
the signs of war are on every hand.
Kleht Man Put On,
The City Council ha& at last deter
mined to put a stop to the shooting
and general devilment kicked up in
town at night Wednesday they ap
pointed Joe Petty as night policeman
and ho at once entered upon his du
ties. Mr. Petty is a splendid man for
the place. He is strictly sober, and is
not afraid to swear against any man
he catches violating the law, Mr.
Walker will remain as day 'man. The
Council is determined to stop pistol
shooting on the streets, and the usual
hullaballoa on Battle Row. If neces
sary they will employ an additional
man for night work. Ihree cheers for
A "Knot on a Log" was hearl to say
the other day, "Its awful to have to
wait 'til 4 o'clock every day for
the mail." Now such chumps as this
do not take into consideration the ten
thousand advantages given the town
by the recent change of trains, but
want to find fault if there's the least
possible chance. The man who made
the above quoted remark gets about
one letter in ten years, and puts in
fourteen hours a day pressing the seat
of his breeches against a chair. We
wish such kickers as thess were in
Halifax and we held a r.ceipt for
'em. Any community that wishes to

North Side Pub. Sq.
Jfo Sunday I'apers.
Because two or three parties are op
posed to Sunday mails, the reading
public is completely cut off from get
ting the daily papers and is compell
ed to pay ten cents apiece for them
and send a man either to Stanford or
Danville for them. Ihe papers are
carried by here on the night trains
and thrown off at Richmond where
they stay until Monday morning. We
believe that with as much hustle as
the average daily paper has, it will
stir some one up over this matter if
attention is called to it At any rate
this article will be marked and sent to
the leading papers for what it is worth.
As matters now -stand the Saturday
afternoon papers are not in Lancaster
until Monday morning, and are deliv
ered with Sunday's edition. We hope
this will be fixed, then we can be an
noyed by those opposed to the Sunday
mails wanting to borrow our Suudaj
paper. Mistaken Idea.
An idea is prevalent that the Gen
trys have rented the entire hotel
property at Crab Orchard Springs for
their reunion. We have it from the
proprietor that only a special rate has
been made the Gentryrs, and while
there will be a great crowd of them on
hand, yet Mr. Hofraann can make
room for any guests who may come.
The property has not been leased for
thU occision. There will be a tre
mendous crowd at the Springs during
this reunion, and the occasion will be
one to be long remembered, but for
those desiring to spond a time th -re
to rest and get the benefits of the
health-giving waters we would advise
them to go either before or after the
big reunion. The Geutrys assemble
there August the 1st, but the probabil
ities are that by the end of that week
there will be ample room to accommo
The Lancaster Company.
The question is often as'ced, "Will
the home company be ordered South?"
We have made inquiry at the regimen

this point and CoL Gaither says they
can not tell what will be done. If the
re'giment is wanted it will not be noti
fied of the fact until a very few days,
and maybe hon s, before the time to

M. D. Hughes, Agent
Judge Brown had a number of case
before liira this week. It is one of the
most diflicult things in the world to
convict the average Police Court of
fender. The parties get into troublo
and while mad swear out the warrant.
By the time the case comes to trial the
angry passions of the witness have
subsided and nine out of every ten of
them will then refuse to swear against
the one under triaL If the ptrties ev
er get a Chance to -'talk it over' it'd
good bye conviction. Eliza Reed is
quite a bad 'un on the Chute and the
other negroes are afraid of her. Sev
eral warrants wore sworn out against
her this week, charging her with abu
sive language, breach of the peace,
etc., but the court could onl3' pump
out enongh evidence to fix one fine of
55. and costs. Harriet Shanks was
fined SI and cost for using abusive
language and the jury acquitted Theo
dore Young for lighting. A general
fight between about six or eight ne
groes took place on this disreputable
street Saturday night in which sever
al of the participants were cut and
bruised up. As they are all working
to keep the case out of court, the Mar
shal has not yet succeeded in getting
warrants for them all, but says he will
