Destroy Ing the Fifth.
It is reported that seining and dy

high hand in Dix river and in Hang

arrest and conviction of parties doing
this, and fishermen should take some
steps to prevent the total destruction
of the fish.

Colored Odd Fellow..
The colored Odd Fellows turned out
Sunday afternoon to hear their annu
al sermon, which was delivered in the
Methodist church. This lodge is com
posed of the very best colored men in
the county, and their careful guard at
the ballot box has made them one of
the best lodges Jn the state. They
own a fine building -and have as hand-
ome regalia as any white lodge. "
Good for George.
Senator George T. Farris tells TnE
Recokd he secured a big contract for
shoes last week at Frankfort. Mr.
Farris represents Conn, Martin, &Co.,
wholesale dealers, of Louisville. He
was present at the letting of contracts
for shoes at the state Penitentiary
last-week and was the successful bid
der on supplying footwear for 2,000
men and 60 women convicts for the
next six months. This is a long
feither for the clever Senator's -cup
and. we glory in his success.

on many parties to construct side

A Royal Time.
Quite a number of local Knights of
Pythias attended the district meeting
at Danville Tuesday. The brethren
are loud in their praise of the elegant
manner in which the Danville boys
entertianed them. We received a
special invitation from brother Harry
Giovannoli to attend the banquet, but
were unable to accept.
There were about 100 cattle on the

Opera Chairs Bought.
The Opera House Co., has closed a
contract with the Andrews Furniture
Co., Chicago, for seven hundred hand
some, up-to-date opera chairs for the
new building. Those for the lower
floor are stained mahogony and the
ones for the balcony are of the finest
oak. They are made with felling
seats, hat and cloak racks, and are the
very latest and most improved pattern.
n enterprising firm has sent a lot
of letter heads to Lancaster business
men, which would be mighty nice if
it were not for the immense advertise
ment of the firm on them. This is a
"cheap-hash" way of advertising their
goods and also makes the user thereof
appear a little close. Anything which
is not worth advertising in the legit
imate and regular way, comes of the
short" order, of course.
A Nice Spread.
The visiting politicians were given
i handsome dinner at the Hamilton
House Tuesday. Among those who
had the pleasure of sticking their
shins under the mahogany were Sen-
itor Goebel, Hon. C. B. Hill, Senator
Geo. Farris, Capt. J. R. Ryan, Letcher
Owsley, J. E. Robinson, Squire Dunn
and several others. The dinner was
pronounced elegant in every way.
Mr. R. E. Henry has been emolovcd
as solicitor and collector for TnE Rec
ord. He will ask everyone indebted to
the paper to fork out the cash, and
will not stop until has either gotten
the money or learns the reason why.
We do not employ a collector for the
fun of the thing, but because we need
the money due us, and need it badlv.

and many others who send no pupils
there, showed their appreciation of
the faithful work of Messrs. B. F.
Hudson and Lewis Y. Leavell by giv
ing them the largest vote ever polled
in a similar election. Notwithstand
ing the fact that there were no oppos
ing names on the poll books, the peop
le left their business and went to the
building to vote. Had it not been Sat
urday a great many more would hav
gone, but as it was they could not
leave their stores.
We learn, from several sources, that
Dr. J. B. Owsley, of Stanford, has
bought the interest of his partner,
Mr. Shanks, in the lots adjoining the
National Bank and will shortly begin
the erection of handsome two-story
business houses thereon. We know
that Capt. Ryan, the architect, of
fered Dr. Owsley $2,500 for the lots and
it was refused. We hear its Dr. Ows
ley's intention to put up substantial
and up-to-date buildings with big fi e
walls between each room. This is
glorious news and we sincerely hope
every word of it is true.
Noted Lecturer Coming.
Mrs. Susan S. Fessenden, of Boston,
Mass., will speak at the Christian!
church next Sunday afternoon, and
again at night. The afternoon lect
ure 'will be mainly to the children, of
the Loyal . Temperance Legion,, but
old and yo.ung will te interested and
are inyitetTto attend. Songs, appro
priate to the occasion, will be render
ed by the children, and everything
possible done to make both entertain
ments enjoyable and instructive.
Mrs. Fessenden comes t o us under
the auspices of the W. G. T. U. For
many years she served as the State
President of that organization la Mas
sachusetts, but withdrew to enter the
field as a National Lecturer. She
comes to as highly recommended as a
platform speaker, and a lady of rare
ability and culture, and we bespeak;
for her a good audience, and for those
who hear her a most delightful occa
sion. Admission free, to all.
Repair on TCxchange.
The big switchboard at the telephone
exchange was taken to Richmond the
other day where som? parties have a re
gular repair shop fitted up. Tha board
was completely overhauled and is now
working like greased lightning. The
day it was out we had no service and
the people were firmly convinced that
they can not get along without the
convenience. There are about two
hundred connections which subscribers
get the benefit of, and our people arc
now wondering how they ever got
along without their telephone. There
are a few more "plugs" left on the
board, but they will be taken soon.
The School Contest.
A large crowd attended the Contest
at the Graded School building Friday
evening and enjoyed the entertain
ment very much. As stated last issmp
it was to select representatives to the
Graded School Tournament to be held
in Somerset the 24th. There were
about half a dozen entries and each
participant did so well the audience
was at a loss to pick the winner. The
judges however soon announced Master
Green Clay Walker and pretty Miss
Edna Mason as entittled to the hon
ors. Tnese win represent tne Lancas
ter school and we feel safe they .will
fare equally as well in the final con
test. During the evening some sweet
music was rendered by pupils of the
The Stanford Journal says a Com
mercial Club has been organized in
that city for the purpose of hustling
for the town's interests. Efforts will
be made to secure factories and other
industries. The Journal further states
the Club offered 5,000 in cash and free
water to the L. & N., if the division
be placed back at Rowland, but the
railroad people would not accept the
offer. Keep pulling, neighbors, iou'11
never get anything if you dont hustle
for it. By the way, if our Stanford
friends will help get the day passenger
trains we are now after, it will be a
ood thing for them. It will be bet
ter for them than for us, as it will put
two train crews there and give them
the best railroad facilities in central
Kentucky. What say ye, Bro. Walton?
-The-Courtr House -was pretty well
filled Tuesday afternoon by those who
wanted to hear the gifted stumper,
Hon. Wm. Goebel, and the other can
didates in town. There were many
Republicans and a good sprinkle of
gold Democrats on hand. It was one
of the most orderly crowds we ever
saw at a political gathering and each
speaker was given marked attention.
Mr. Goebal is a good speaker and
knows how to present a point in a
clear way. He dwelt at length on the
election law which bears his name,
praised the McChord bill, devoted
much time to the silver cause, touch
ed up the Republican administration,
eulogized Wm. J. Bryan, espoused the
Chinn school book bill and paid his
respects to P. Wat Hardin. Mr. Goe
bel is full of humor and at many times
caused great laughter, especially when
ridiculing his oponent, Mr. Hardin.
The latter seemed to be his chief tar
get, as he never referred to Mr. Stone,
the other candidate.
A't the conclusion of Mr. Gocbel's
talk, senator Hays, of Jefferson county
told the crowd of his candidacy for
lieutenant governor, and he was fl
lowed by Judge C. B. Hill, of Lee
county, who wants the nomination
for secretary of state. The speeches
served to stir the boys up and those
who have nothing else to do have been
given something to talk about.
The regular meetingof the Commer
cial Club held Tuesday night was well
attended. Mr. Griffin, the L. & N.
traveling freight agent, was present.
He was asked why it was that ship
pers claimed to get better rates from
Danville to Cincinnati than from this
point. He said if there were any dif
ferences he was not aware of them, the
two roads had precisely the same
published rates. He said he had heard
these charges, but could never get a
shipper to furnish him with figures
whereby the L. & N. could take ac
tion. The road could not act on ru
mor, and no shipper having furnished
tne direct proor, oi course no ac
tion could he taken. The question of
hauling coal to Louisville for about
half the rate to Lancaster was brought
up, and Mr. Walker, the road's attor
ney, said they were obliged to take
coal to Louisville on the very smallest
margin on account of the Pittsburg
coal being broughthere by river. He
said that if any shipper would present
the L. & N. with a receipt showing
that their road had charged more than
any other, on any commodity, the
wrong would certainly be rightod and
that quickly. The chair tUen.appoint
