But this is not so important. The
first question that presents itself will
be "who ia to run it?" An agree-

week with Mr. Woodson Moss, of
Winchester, Ky., to take charge
as soon as the building is completed.
Mr. Moss is a hotel man of njany
years experience and he is now run
ning a hotel at "Winchester that is
classed by traveling men as one of the
very best in the State. That he is
capable is beyond all question and he

Office rof Road Supervisor
Was Declared Va-
finally determined to gve Hopkins
ville 'fuller hotel accommodations,
and only three days since all other
plans were abandoned and the hotel
proposition was given precedence.
At this time-it is impossible to go
into details t s to general outline,
but we can say that the new hostelry
will be entirely modern.
The building will contain 62 guest
rooms. The banquet hall will be on
the first floor, in the store room
adjoining the large building now in
process of contraction. 'Its area
will be greater than any dining room
in this end of the State. The office
and lobby will be in the corner with
a cafe fronting on Eleventh street.
The guest rooms will be large and
well ventilated and reached by a
passenger elevator running from
the first to the fourth floor. Of
course the entire building will be
heated by steam and the lighting
will be perfect. The corridors on
every floor will be broad and fire
escapes will be put in, everywhere
necessary to the full protection of
life in case of fire
Whilst convenience and comfort

(if that should be the name) their

The mo3t important item brought
up for consideration wa3 for action
in regard to the abolishment of the
office of County Road Supervisor,
held by B. W. Coleman.
County Attorney Puffy addressed
the court, in which he gave his con
struction of the law passed by the
last General Assembly, which is em
bodied in the following order, enter
ed upon the record and signed by
County Judge Knight:
"By virtue of Chap. 110 Gen.As'y.

abolished and that said office no
longer exists, and that by Sec. 48 of
the, said statute it is the duty of the

a road examiner, and that this duty
is mandatory, as recently- held by
the Court of Appeals, in the case of
