Says They Can't Compromise.
The City Council of Paris employed
an eminent legal firm to give an opin

to compromise back taxes with the
banks. In an exhaustive report they
decided that the city possessed no such
power. The matter will be investiga
ted and able attorneys consulted.

Temperance speakers have mounted
the raging stump in Richmond and are

We are opposed to bar rooms, but

would not come "in case" in their
mouths in three weeks.
Wheeling Killed Him.
The " Louisville papers tell of the
death of Walter C. Morgan, who was
riding a bicycle from Louisville to
Lancaster. He was with a young Mr.
Crow, nephew of A. B. Brown Sr., of

Morgan fell from his wheel daad, the
victim of sunstroke. The Courier
Journal speaks highly of Morgan and
says he was soon to be married to a
lady born and raised here.

The City Council is wrestling with
the sidewalk question. Every man
able to own property ought to bo wil
ling to lay a decent walk by it and,
from the standpoint of right and
wrong he should do so without the
law having to forci him. But some
parties won't do it. If they have a
good walk batween them and town
they dont care a cuss what other fel
lows have to walk through. Lancas
ter has the poorest sidewalks of any
town in Central Kentucky and we
hope the efforts of the Council will
When the Garrard county company
of volunteers was orauizsd, they
were ordered to assemble in tha Court
House on a certain day. After run
ners had gotten the men together, an
order came from head-quarters to hold
&t mi w n
the men here a day or two. The weath
er being bitter eoM, and the volun
teers hav ng no blankets or overcoats,
several public spirittd citizens started
ti to secure blankets, etc., to maku
the bays comfortable. After all ob
tainable waro gotter, there yet re
mained sixty or seventy m -n with aV
solutely nothing to keep oil the cold.
Tnosj hustling for the bays laid the
matter before Judge Burnside and he
ordered some t lankets, all readily
agreeing that the county should pay
for th?m. The matter was brought
before tli2 court Monday and 'Squires
Ike Mj-ers ard Noel voted to pay the
bill, 'Squires Parson and Dunn voting
no. Judge Burnside, then said ho
would put the blanke'.s up next court
day (they were sent back here after
the government furnished other i at
Lexington), and tc!l them at auction.
What is lacking to foot the bill will bo
paid by private subscription. It looks
pretty short for a county with the
wealth and good peo lo that Garrard
ha?, to refuse to furnish a few blank
ets for a company of men who havj
gone to risk their lives for their coun
try. Old Nieh to Celebrate.
The people of Nicholasville are hust
ling for their town as never a lot of
good folks hustled before. They have
organized a Commercial Club and are
pulling together for the advancement
of the town's interest. On September
10, the one hundreth anniversary of
thi good old town will celebrated
in grand style. Everything porsiblu
to make the occasion a iu cjss is being
done. They never do things by halves
over there and it goes without saying
that the big pot will be put clean in
side the little one. It does one's soul
good to visit a town like N'c toiasvr e.
The people are glad to see y n anu ex
tend a welcome which shows conclu
sively that they are free from the dis
gusting manner of thinking themselves
b.-tter than the, rest of mankind.
