We loaro from tho Dully Paducah
Standard the particulars nf a robbery com
mitted by a preacher of the Christian den

Islcr by nameot Wm. Wenthford, of Salem,
Livingston county, Ky., tended overooats
with a man by name of John Freeman, of
tho same place. In exchanging the coats,
Freeman forgot to take out $0,000 In cash
and soeuritles ho had m his pockets. Af
ter some little time he noticed his mistake
and raturned to procure tho monty, but
Weathford, upon being asked for the con
tents of the pockets, denied the facta of
anything being in them, whereupon Mr.
Freeman swore out a warrant tor his arrest
upon the plea of theft. The guilty preach
er is now behind thi bars awaity the de

A Republican Scare.
Some miserable republican alarmists have
started a simple story that G rover Cleve
land's Inauguration as president of the
United States will be prevented next March.
The pirties originating the ctnard and
those believing it can be placed in the
category of fools. Alter failing to "count
out" Cleveland ami Hendricks, it would
seem that some of the plundering, scou"d
erly ringsters are scheming to prevent the
will of the American people by a nefarious
attempt to interfere with the seating of the
national officer of the democratic party.
Numerous rumors have prevniled in the
east lately of rebellion upon tho part of the
MSCHlly office-holders, who have growu
rich and bloated by wholesale robbery, and
itcertainly seems that some timid-minded
people are credulous enough to apprehend
that a terrible uprising may occur in Wash
ington on inauguration day. For any citi
Zt n of this couStry to believe for one mo
ment that Cleveland and Hendricks will
not be peaceably inaugurated and located
io the white house is really absurd. That
the victorous standard bearerersof Amer ca's
democracy will be seated in the chair of
the presidency and vice-presidency is as
sure as the sun rises and sets, and it any of
the republican cormorants that crawl their
slimy lengths About the neighborhood of
the national capital cherish the thought
that they can stop the inauguration of
Cleveland and Hendricks, let them attempt
it at their peril. The democrats of the
United SUtes are in no disposition to allow
the steal of 1870 to he repeated, and the
thunderbolts of an outraged people will
fall with terrific and crushing effect upon
the heads of all treacherous men of the ad
ministration party that dire to tamper with
the sentiment of America's people. To tho
victor belongs tho spoils, aud tho democrats
stand in one Solid body to still continue
tho good fight they have fought, and won
by the election of Cleveland and Udndricks.
"Kin Van Winkle" To-night.
Washington Irving never gwe to tho
wotltl of le'ters a more beautiful thing
than "Rip Van Winkle." Irving Ims long
since passed into the land of spirits, but
the story lived and deserved to bo drama
tized. Tho story is never impired. It be
gins in the Hudson Valley, famous in poet
ry and history. Thi Catskill mountains are
the background, aid Hp Van Winkle is
handed to us in marital lineage as thu hero.
He was beloved of tho village wives aid
children, but a j -alous wife could not see
his virtue, nnd liko many a man, before
and since, failing to receive kind words at
Inine, drowned his trouble1 in tho flying
bowl. Among the many untrue, Schneider,
his dog, was true; he did not scold -an old
bone and tho companionship of his master
was all ho asked. It was natural that
when Rip Van Winkle wandered off into
the mountains that Schneider Bhould fol
low him. Whether they found odd fairies
at nine pins, or whothor it was Holland
Gin, dons not detract from tho story. Rip
dmnk the mixture as Indeed he was ad
dicted to drinking anything above tho sus
picion of water. He slept, the story says,
for twenty years. In that sleep, he had
outlived his di g, his gun had grown old
and trusty, and ho had also outlived tho
woman who bad driven him out into the
storm. To attempt to change tho plot is
to mar it; therefore, is Joseph Jefferson a
mar-plot. As he plays it, Rip finds, on hie
leturn, his wife wedded to the mnn who
caused all his trouble. Robert McWade
plays "Rip Vn Winkle" to life, Where
he has appeared, ho has so ably represented
the story that JeffursuQ has suffered by
The Banker's Daughter.

that the greatest murxlixt ol the day could
witness it and be benefitted thereby. The
company are conscientious artists, and
their intelligent audience showed their ap
preciation and delight by hearty, frequent

pleasure to endorse the company as first
