GEORGE A. LEWIS,
FRANKFORT, NOVEMBER 15. 1884.
Thanksgiving turkey will bo next In
The Democracy of this city and county
had another bigjollifleaiion Saturday
night over the Presidential election.
A large number'of houses were illuminated,
a torch light procession paraded
the Ptroot., cannon and fire works were
fired off, and every unterrifled Democrat
lifted up liis voice and yelled until
lie was hoarse.
Thos. Crittenden, who is under indictment
for killing a negro man at
An '.'borage a year or more ago, has
obtained a change of venue from the
Jefferson Circuit Court to Spencer county.
The case was called Tuesday before
Judge Dellaven, at Taylorsville, and
continued until next May. In the
meantime Crittenden will remain in
jail in Louisville.
We seem never to be without an
election on hand, with its attendant
wire pulling and "fixing tilings." So
farthisyearwe have had the Democratic
primary for Sheriff, the August and
November elections, and next conies
the city election, on the 6th of December,
for Councilmen, then on the first
Saturday in January we are to elect a
Hoard of School Trustees. After that
we suppose another primary will be
ordered, so as to keep up the fun.
Mr. Jas. W. Blackburn, son of late
Secretary of State James Blackburn,
and Miss Hallie, youngest daughter of
Judge G. W. Craddock, were married
at the Methodist Church on Tuesday
evening, in the presence of a large
company of friends. The ceremony
wa performed by Rev. G. C. Kelly,
assisted by Rev. Geo. Darsie. After a
supper at the residence of the bride's
parents, the young couple left on the
C. iv O. train for Washington City,
where the groom is an employe in one
of the Departments.
Col. Robert W. Scott, an old and
highly respected citizen of this county,
died at the residence of his son-in-law,
Col. S. I M. Major, in this city, last
Sunday afternoon at half past 2 o'clock,
aged 76. He was a public spirited
citizen, taking foremost position in
agricultural, political, religious and
educational interests. Polished and
courtly in his manners, treating all,
from the highest to the lowliest, with
marked deffcrence, he held the respect
and esteem of till with whom hecainein
contact. In early life he studied law, but
l'ailinghealth compelled him toabandon
the practice of it, when he purchased a
farm near Jett's Station, in this county,
and turned his attention to raising fine
stock. He soon became one of the leading
breeders of this county, which
position lie held to the day of his death.
His funeral took place on Tuesday
and was largely attended.
Monday afternoon the stable, corn
crib and of Mr. Walker
Stephens and .several outbuildings on
the place formerly owned by him, but
now the property of the Meriwether
heirs, about two miles from the city on
the Louisville pike, were destroyed by
fire. There was but little water on the
place, and it was with great difiiculty
that the old Stephens residence, now occupied
by Mr. II. S. Bantu, could be
saved from the flames. Mr. .Stephens
had two hoies in the stable at the
time, which were burned up, together
with a lot o Harming implimcnts, and
his loss is about SI, 500, with no insurance.
The Merriwelher heirs' loss is
about $1,000, with 9300 insurance. Mr.
L. S. Roberts, who lives on the place,
had a portion of his crop stowed in one
of the buildings which was burned and
it was a total loss. Mr. II. S Bantu's
furniture was badly damaged in getting
it out of the liou.se, but is insured. He
also lost i.'10 worth of horse feed. Mr.
Roberts' fattening hogs were in a pen
near the stable and came near being
burned, but his wife succeeded in getting
them away in time to save them.
Some little boys were firing off a lot
of fire crackers near the stable a
little time before, and it is supposed
that it was set lire to by a lighted portion
of a cracker falling into the straw.

well known In this city, having represented
