Capt. Geo. Everett, State Superintendent
of convict labor on the Kentucky
Central extension, was shot and killed
near Winchester Tuesday. Everett had
drawn his pistol in a quarrel with a negro
workman, who grabbed the weapon, and
as they struggled for its possession it was
discharged with the above result. Mr.
Everett was a former resident of Montgomery
county, and during the war served
as a Lieutenant in Capt. Pete
company from Bourbon and
Montgomery, and connected with the 4th
infantry of the Kentueky Brigade. He
was also a brother of Pete Everett, the
gallant raider. Later. Not dead.
Fifteen out of nineteen items in the
Millersburg department of the True
Kentuckian Wednesday, had been published
in the two preceding numbers of
the Bourbon News. Many of them were
verbatim, while others were changed,
but a little. The local columns also contained
several verbatim locals and quite
a number of "sldnned" ones. I) the
dear, sweet Kentuckian that regular
Jesus sheet would only give proper credit
and garble less of it's local news, it
would then get cussed less by it's local
patrons. The News guards strictly
against publishing anything published in
our local papers unless it is something
worthy of giving credit for, and hopes in
the future to be treated in the same
A dirty Scandal.
About the dirtiest scandal that has
been unearthed in Kentucky for some
time, dropped the bloom in November
and ripened and rotted in over-matured
fruit in Carlise Tuesday. Dr. J. L. Rob-bins,
of Myers' Station married a Miss
Smart last October, and in November
forced her at the muzzle of a pistol to a
confession of incest with her brother before
marriage. The Dr. also forced at the
muzzle of a pistol seven notes of $150,
each covered by land mortgage, payable
to himself, as a bonus for living with her
and the protection of her name in future,
from his wife's brother, John Smart.
Now suit has been brought in Court for
setting aside the notes and mortgage on
the grounds of fraud and intimidation.
Mrs. Robbins has gone to Missouri, and
her dear Dr. is lurking at the home of his
father in the county. The sheriff has a
warrant charging him with robbery, in
his hands for the arrest of Robbins.
Some Plain Facts,
We have figured carefully on the actual
cost of the News, and find that the
paper, postage, and all things incident
thereto, aggregate $1. 75 to each subscriber.
We sell it for $2 in advance and
make the insignificant sum of 25 cents.
Hundreds of subscribers dont pay in advance,
but "pay in a lew days," which, in
many cases amounts to months; then it
takes twenty cents worth of stamps and
stationery sent out as duns, to collect the
profit of five cents, and frequently we
have a subscriber who insists on acting a
thief and scoundrel over so small an
amount as two dollars. Verily tliis is a
peculiar world, and it is dotted all over
here and there with men without the
slightest conception of honor, principle
or gentility. The idea of an editor surrendering
all manliness and making a
gush-flunky out of himself and
to the whims of every darned fool for
the simple sum of five cents, is ridiculous.
It is not within the scope ot jour
nalism or true manliness to have to puff
every little scallawag as "the popular"
and "efficient" Mr. Bombfuzzle has a
new hoe handle, stove-pipe or broad ax ;
or, the "vivacious" little Miss Spitfire
took dinner across the street yesterday.
No, Sir ! That is different from our idea
of journalism. A journalist is one who disseminates
intelligence, collates the news,
analyzes questions-of local and national
importance, deduces opinions, and seeks
to elevate society to a standard high

with a single copy, where there should
be four. There's nothing like making
a master economical strike in the right
direction. It paralyzes the editors heart
and melts it with christian humility and
makes him feel that he's lost his power
and influence to do wrong in the future,
and that he's nothing but a dishonored
flunky tool of gushism to every scallawag
