FOR KENTUCKY
River and Harbor Bill dive a Full
Recognition
Mnsriington D C March 7
There has been a very full recogni
tion of Kentucky in the last two
river and harbor bills Three
years ago the Kentucky river the
most important river in the State
extending- from the Cumberland
mountains to the Ohio river was
placed under the contract system
the United States government there
by pledging itself to the canalizing
of the riYer to the three forks at
13eattyvillc This was the first
continuous contract ever given to
the State In the same bill Con
gress placed under the contract
system the falls of the Ohio River at
Louisville on the sum ot 500000
which will be furnished during the
current j ear In the same bill the
Rough River had an appropriation
which was sufficient to complete the
only lock and dam on the river A
new lock and dam were authorized
in the same bill of 1895 beside sev
eral other less important mat
ters with surveys contemplat
ing future improvements
The present river and harbor
bill gives Kentucky a very full rec
ognition again A half million dol
lars is appropriated totheconstruc
tion of the locks and dams between
the one completed at Louisa under
the last bill and the mouth of the
Sandy S5000 for the completion
of the lock and dam on Green river
and survey for the said stream
from Mammoth Cave to Grecnburg
Andrews Opera Company
Those of our public who really
appreciate the classical in music
n the way of Grand Opera will
welcome the fact Manager Ennis is
using his best efforts to secure the
celebrated ANDREWS OPERA
COMPANY for two nights in this
city Whether he succeeds or not
depends upon the amount ot a sub
scription sale he is enabled to as
sue the requisite being 200 books
containing 4 tickets each at 5300
per book which number will guar
antee the companys appearance
here in choice of operas to be select
ed from the following Flotows
tuneful and charmingopera MAR
THA Mascagnas fomous prize
opera CAVALERIA RUSTIC
AFA and the beautiful French
opera- comique
The reason of the subscrip
tion system is that it permits the
price of seats being placed within
the reach of all who specially enjoy
operatic entei taintnents vi 100
each or 75 cents each where the
book is secured a saving b the
atter of 25 percentto thepurchaser
The company is one of the most
prominent now before the public
presenting Grand and Comic Opera
in English It aggregates 40 peo
olc and the cast includes some of
the very best lyric talent known to
the operatic stage The fact of
their making a prolonged run in
Philadelphia last spring and sum
mer to phenomenal business is a
surety of their exceptional merit
They are lavishly equipped in the
way of accessories and handsome
costumes which together with
their capable ensemble adds much
to theenloyment of their produc
tions
Manager Ennis respectfully so
licits the ardent support of our
music lovers in this matter and
will consider it a favor if those who
wish to assist him will send their
names and the number of books
they will subscribe for to Hopper
Bros the regular reserve seat sale
Subscribers will have access to the
chart one day in advance of the
regular sale
