Entered at the post-office at Frankfort, Kentucky
as second class mailable matter.
GEORGE A LEWIS,
FRANKFORT. FEBRUA11Y 21, 1885.
In running out to the Are Wednesday
afternoon the hook and ladder
truck ran over and killed the Fire
Department's dog. The greatest delight
of the little animal's life was to
"run with the machine," and always
went hounding and barking before the
horses when on a full run for a fire
The slippery condition of the streets
prevented his getting out of the way
in time Wednesday. The funeral took
place Wednesday morning, Phillips,
Wat, and Col. Jim Tobin being chief
The new heating apparatus that is
being placed in the Opera House will
bo ready for use next Wednesday.
The old radiators have been placed in
better positions and leveled up, and
pipes are being run under every third
row of chairs, more radiators have
been placed on the stage, and pipes
run around the wall, and when the
work is completed the contractor
claims there will be no more complaint
about the temperature of the
hall. The pipes are so arranged that
,as fast as the steam condenses the
water is returned to the boiler and
thus keeps it constantly supplied, it
being necessary only to put in a little
water occasionally to supply the loss
by evaporation. It requires but very
little fuel, and when the steam gauge
shows any number of pounds of steam
in the boiler the same number of
pounds will be upon the pipes in the
most remote portion of the hall. It is
also claimed that with the same apparatus
the Council Chamber and offices
in the front portion of the building
can be heated at less than half the
present cost to the occupants.
As the Louisville Commercial is
creating considerable of a stir just now
concerning the financial condition of
the State, the following facts may be of
interest to the tax-payers:
The Legislature of was in
session something over one hundred
days and did as much work as any
session which has been held since.
rPfwi rtftWtitw gC i luiT 1 .ncriulnriirk
ed the following compensation:
Chief Clerks of each house, $10 per
day; Assistant Clerks, $8. No Second
Assistant Clerk was thought necessary,
as two clerks did all the work without
complaining. Sergeant-at-Arms, $6;
Door-keeper, $6; Clerk of Enrolling
Committee, who di(l all the work for
both committees, $1 per day; two
Pages in the Senate and three in the
House of Representatives, $l.f() each
per day; one Janitor in each house, at
$1.00 per day.
The Legislature of 18S.V4 was in
104 days and did but little more
work and paid the officers of each
House as follows:
Chief Clerk, $10 per day; Assistant
Clerk, $10; Second Assistant Clerk, 8;
$8; Door-keeper, $8;
one Clerk of each Enrolling Committee,
$8; one Assistant Clerk of each
Enrolling Committee, $6 (four in all);
Cloak-room Keeper of each House, $3
per day; one Assistant Cloak-room
Keeper, $'); twelve Pages, live in the
Senate, six in the House and one for
the Governor, $ii per day each; two
Janitors for each House at $1 per day
each. Thus making the last session of
tae Legislature- cost the State $;)0.o0
per day, or $12,127 for the entre session,
inoie for officers alone than the session
of both Legislatures being controlled
by Democratic majorities
Why it was necessary to have three
clerks, at an increased expense of ten
dollars per day in each House, when
two would do as well; or why it required
four Enrolling Clerks, at an
expense of $28 per day, to do s .ait one
man did for S3; or why it took twelve
Pages, at an expense ot'&'W per day, to
da less work than Jive did for $7.G0,
is something the average tax-payer
c.inuut understand And why It was
necessary to pay the Sergeant-at-Arms
Mid Door-Keepers two dollars more
per day, create the ornamental offices
wf Cloak-room keepers at an expense
of 5-9 per day, and appoint twice as
many Janitors, at four times the wages,
is also somewhat of a conundrum.
The mercury yesterday morning
went down to fi 8-10' below zero.
The grand Jury on Saturday returned
indictments against T. J. Shepherd,
the Jeweler, for receiving Judge O. D.
McMunnma's gold watch for repairs
and making away with it, and against
F. M. Wayne, also jeweler, for carrying
off llev. J. M.Lewis' gold spectacles
Col. Dave Moore-very quietly dropped
out of the race for jailer a month
or two ago. Ho did not withdraw in
the interest of any one, but Just because
he found out that If he wished
to win he would have to make a dog
of himself and therefore came off the
Emma Scfltt, colored, was arrested
Thursday morning by Officers Brown
und Williams, charged with stealing
four dollars in money nnd a lot of

in her possession, and she had the
clothing on when arrested.
JUr. Dave Moore, of the Benson precinct,
tliis county, owns a ewe that

prolitic ewe than Dave let him step to
Mr. Jas. H Graham purchased on
Wednesday of Judge W. P. D. Bush
the beautiful building lot on Washington
street, between his residence
andthatofCapt. B. C Milam, 70 feet
front by 200, for four thousand dollars
cah. Mr Graham will erect a handsome
brick residence upon it in the
Eld. John A. Sidener did not sell his
place on Tuesday as advertised, for
the reason that only two bidders were
present, several having come to this
city thinking the sale was to take
place here. He will dispose of it at
private sale, provided he has a good
offer before the first of March.
The cash drawer of Messrs. Sower &
Aider's confectionery was robbed Saturday
morning of about $12 in change.
Alex. Jackson, colored, was arrested on
suspicion and the money was found in
his possession. He had stolen several
small amounts from the drawer in the
bar-room on former occasions. He
was given (50 days in the work-house.
Mr. Oscar Blakemore, one of the
most prosperous young farmer of this
county, and Miss Sallie Wool folk, of
Woodford county, were married
Thursday morning, at the residence of
the bride's mother, near Glens Creek
Church, in the presence of the immediate
families of the contracting parties
and a few friends, by Rev. W.
H Felix. The happy pair came to
this city immediately after the ceremony
and took the 2:30 train for a
trip to New Orleans. We congratulate
Mr. Blakemore upon having secured
so fair a prize, knowing that a union
so peculiarly fortunate can but be
fraught with happiness to both.
