off in Mason county Saturdav. There
were four candidates : J. D. Kehoe, A.

H.- M. Ruclter.
We heard a few business men who
knew whereof they spoke, making an estimate
of H. M. Bucker's indebtedness to
parties in and around Paris. It footed up
about $10,000, not including a debt of
several thousand due Bichard Buckner,
of Lexington. Mr. Bucker was severelv
censured for the abrupt manner in which
he left, and the way he treated many
poor darkies who thought they were depositing
their money in bank, when he
really received their money and gave
them his plain note of hand. One colored
man holds his notes for $1,000, and
others for smaller sums. The attachments
issued on his property in Eucker-ville,
will not cover one fourth of his indebtedness
here. His clear gain in finances
above his expenditures, ' while in
Paris, is calculated to be about $85,000.
No oue could spot an instance where he

of $10 for an invalid sister, who had no
clothes exceptingihose on her back, and
no place on earth to poke her head at
night or to get a meal in the daytime.
His character as discussed on this occasion
was one filled with more villiany and
hypocracy than that of any man
who ever left the State. The justly
outraged citizens promise to make it extremely
warm for him if he ever returns
