rosser & McCarthy,
WErN"5SDAY EVE, APRIL 17, 1889,
Thkke aro nine hundred npplicfttiona
on file nt Washington for nppointmonta
of Postoffice Inspector. Ol course, thoro
aro noliungry Republicans in the country.
Clkvkland is no longer in the White
House, and the treasury-raiders behind
the Direct Tax Refunding bill are prepar
ing already to push that tnensure through
at the next Eossion of Congress. But the
Democrats will have something to say
about it all the same.
Tub contest for the Collectorahip of
this district is still unsettled and judging
by the latest news some time will elapse
before General Robinson's successor is
named. Several of the faithful arc after
the position, but tho correspondents at
Washington City have from the first con
sidered Captain M. C. Hutchins one of
the most formidable aspirants, and in
fact most likely to securo the "plum."
While he is not of our political faith, yet
ho was born in Maysville and has spent
his life among us, with the exception of
the two and one-half years he was at the
Ohio WeBleyan University and tho four
years he was in the military service ; and
if we must have a Republican Collector
let it be the Captain. No one doubts
that he is competent to fill the position,
with credit to himself and the public
ervice. Though a Btrong partisan, he is
an amiable gentleman, sober nnd atten
tive to liiB duties, and in tho public po
sitions he has filled ho has ever shown
himself pleasant and courteous to all who
bad any official intercourse with him.

A Pioneer Town in Kentucky Whon
Lexington Was. the West
The Porils to Which tho Early Set
tlers Woro Exposed From
W. H. Perrln In Courier-Journal.
An early town In Kentucky, and at ono
timoqultoabiulno point, was Muy's Lick,
in what is now Mason County. When Lex
luglon was the great metropolis of tho West
aud center of ihoclvlllzUlon this side of the
Appalachian chain; when Louisville was
only a fort, with a few cabins on Heargrnss
creek, May's Lick was a place of considerable
iraportauce-lu fact, with few exceptions, the
' most important plaoaln tbo county of Ken-
I tucky. But its greatness has nlm st faded
iftrn the minds of men. It is twolvo
rulks from Maysville, aud dates Its exlsteuco
back to 1779. It was named for Cantulu John
May, whose traglo death and. the capture of
his boat lu 17t)0, on the Ohio river, by Indians,
have been already given In tbeso paper, nnd
who owned tho land on which the town was
laid out, and a famous lick near by. It was
on the buffalo trace from Maysville (Lime
stone) to the Lower Blue Lick, and) was a fa
mous camplug ground In early tlmo.
Many of the influential families, members
of which have become eminent aud great In
the history of Kentucky, settled at May's
Lick when they first came to the Bin to. The
fine spring aud excellent water was Induce
ment, nnd perhaps attracted them thither.
Wells and cisterns aro " modern Inventions "
that our pioneers knew nothing of, and as
Kentucky had many fine spiln-js, they be
came the sites of all tho fort, block-houses,
stations and early settlements. Among the
early settlers thero were tho MoLeans, ono of
whom Jo'm McLean- was at one time Chief
Justlco of the United State; Desha, after.
ward Governor of (he Htate ; Daniel Drnke
and Waller, Dougherty, llickson, Basse ti,
Lawson, Threlkeld, Qlovor, Caldwell, John
son, Mitchell, most of whose names will be
recognized ns prominent In the State. The
Shreves and Shotwells and several other old
and prominent famlles who came to Louis
villa In Its Infancy, first sellled at May's Lick.
They were nearly all Baptists, and tho first
church In that section was built by them at
In the pioneer period of Kentucky, there
was much annoyance to tho peoplo of May's
Lick aud vicinity by Indians. Although
never besieged, or boldly attacked like Hud
dell's or Lexington or Boonesboro, the sav
ages committed many depredations and mur
dered many people. A few incidents will Il
lustrate the perils and dangers to which tbo
bottlers In that section were exposed for years.
An instance is as lollows: In the spring ol
179U, a company of emigrants sitting around
their camp, fire, a mile north of May's Lick,
were fired Rh by Indians aud one mnu killed.
A woman's presence of mind saved the whole
parly from destruction. Bhojumped Into one
of tbo wagons, aud, with nn ax, broke open a
chest, got nut the amunltlon and distributed
it to tbo men, culling ou them to put out the
camp file and fight. This they did with a
will, excepting a young man Just married,
wlio, lu his fright, ran off to tho village, leav
ing his young wife behind. Thero Is no rec
ord that sho was as courageous as she Who,
wheu asked by her husband If ho might go to
war, told him to go his country needed him,
and hlin would rather live tho widow of a
bravo mtn than the wife of a coward. But
the valor of the men who stood their ground
soon repulsed the savates aud diove them
away. Another instance, occurring near
May's Lick, Is thus recorded In the early his
trry of tho State: Two men named Hezeklah
Wood and Lot Masters, went out one morn
ing after tho lior.-e, which had been boiled
and turned out to graze. The Indians caught
the horses, removed tho bulls, and, by swing
ing them, decoyed the men away from the
station where they killed aud scalped them.
It was in tho summer season, aud their bodies
were not found until the turkey buzzards di
rected their frleuds to tho spot whero they had
But tho Indians otten met tho fate thoy do
signed fur their white foes. So many horses
were stolen from the sbttlets by tbo savages
Unit every artifice- that could be suggested or
devU-ed was resjrted to by them to punish
the red thieves. Rewards were offered, horil
bio as It may now seem to us, tor Indian
scalps, and, more'h irrlbte still, a gallon of
rum was the reward lorn sluglo scalp. Tbo
following Is un Instance: One night Robert
McClureand two other men went out from
Limestone with nn old gray borso of llttlo
value, on which tiey put a bell, for the pur
pose of trnpniug Indian horso thieves. That
the whites had no more scruples In taking
the life of nn Indian than that of a wolf or
bear, Is tho fact that these men, ns they went
out to their " field of operations," agreed that
If they found au Indian, thoy would shoot nt
different parts of the body, In order to know
who was entitled to the gallon of lum. Mc
Clure was to shoot at tho loins, oue of tho
others, whose name was Ciary, at tho heart,
and the third at the head. They had but a
short tlmo to wait after turning the belled
horse loose, wheu a single Indian appeared,
and, whon sufficiently near, all three fired,
then fearing that a large party might bo con
coaled near by, the whlto men huirled off
to tho town or, rather, fort. A laigo
fo ce wont out to the place noxt morn
ing uud found the Iudlau badly wounded,
but still living. Ho bad received n shot In
tho loins, nnd had bled profusely. He was
dispatched lustautly aud scalped, and Mc
Cluro received his gallon of rum. Tills same
McClure, upon another occasion, wont out
alone, talcing a bell, and on arriving lu dan
gerous grounds, rnng tho bell in imitation
of a horso grazing, and thou hid to w'ljtcli de
velopments. In a little while ho saw au In
dian emerge from tho thlckot near his place
of concealment, and peer about looking for
tbo belled horse. McClure took deliberate aim
aod fired, killing tbo savage, lie rushed to
him, tore off his scalp aud escaped to tho
Mason County contained tho first settle
ments In tbo northern part of the State For
many years Limestone was tho great landing
place for all Central Kentucky. Emi
grants would corms down the river in boats,
land at Limestone and then proceed to the
respootlve placas of their oholco to locate.
