DAILY, EXCEPT SUNDAY.
rosser & McCarthy,
TUESDAY EVEN'G, DEO., 27, 1887.
The news comes from Washington
Oity that James W. Blackburn, Jr., has
lbM liia eighteen -hundred-dollar-a-year
DDbixo the past year this country ex
ported $727,000,000 of merchandise and
imported $712,000,000 worth. The bal
ance is a little in Uncle Sam's favor.
1 Aiout half a million foreigners immi
grated to this country the past year. 3d
long as the anarchists and communists
are kept out this in-rush is all very well.
Tub Cincinnati Enquirer and a few
more enterprising newspapers Bcem to
have a contract with Biaine's backers to
kteep the " Plumed Knight " before the
people of this country.
1 Tub Mt. Sterling Gazette says : "It is
annianced that Judge H.' R. French, the
present Cashier of the Mt. Sterling Na
tional Batik, will be a candidate for the
Appellate Clerkship, which position is to
be illed two years hence.
t Youjfo Mb. Dickens expresses himself
as delighted with this country; it's
hotels, railroads and people. And how
conld ho be otherwise? Where is there
another Buch c6un'try as this " land of
the free, and home of the brave ?"
The thieves down at Ripley would no
doubt "steal a copper off a dead nigger's
eye's" if they'b'ad the chance. Onb cf
them " appropriated " an old widow
lady's false teoth a few days ago, and is
now in custody to answer the charge.
SoiiEDODY suggests " Bryan and Bur
nett " for Governor and Lieutenant Gov
ernor in 1801. Well, give us the brilliant
Lieutenant Governor as the head of the
ticket and we don't give a continental
who the other fellow may be. Owen
Dcjiixu the past two years Canadian
embezzlers have fled to this country with
$3,000,000 of other people's money .'while
United States embezzlers have- gobbled
tip $20,000,000 and carried it off into
Canada in the same period. This latter
sum might have been increased a million
or so had not the law laid "violent hands"
upon Edward L. Harper when it did.
One result of the terrible drouth the
past summer in this section is seen in
the .statement tint Bracken's tobacco
crop is 2,101,000 pounds short, while
there was a falling off of 224,408 bushels
in her corn crop as compared with that
of the year before, and a large decrease
in, oats, wheal, hay, &c. At least that's
what the recent assessment down there
chows. But it is not always safe to bank
on some Assessor's figures.
C. H. Callon, editor of the Greeup
Herald, announces in last week's issue
of his paper that he will suspend further
publication u'ntll the legislature decides
who the representative 'from Greenup
County shall be. Brother Cation mado
the race last August as the Democratic
nominee against Brother Hardin, of We
Independent, who was the Repixblfcah
nominee. Rardin received a majority of
th'e votes cist, but It is claimed ho was
ineligible to the office 'because he 'then
held the office of United States Commis
sioner. Gallon claims that Rome of tfie
oldest lawyers in the State assure him
that he will represent Greenup County
in the next legislature and not Rardin,
and he therefore proposes to carry the
war up to Frankfort and remain until the
contest id decided.
