The prohibitionists have rcorcd another
victory in the courts. Thin time it is in
lows, where a United States Judge icud
an order remanding to the State courts all
injunction cases before him, which la in effect
to declare in favor of prol ibition. The
whisky men regard it as the severest blow
yet at the traffic eince the paesige of the
Clark law. On the other hand news of a
decision in Maine, where legal prohibition
seems to have originated, is not so favor
able. One of the State courts has declared
unconstitutional the recently enacted law,
holding a government liquor licence to be
prima facie evidence that the person displaying
the same is a common seller of intoxicating
liqiiots and the premises kept by
him n common nuisance.
A comnittke of ihe Kentucky Press As
sociation met in Louisville Friday and pre
pared a paper to be presented to the Legis
Iature asking that a legal advertising law,
such as prevails in nearly every State, be
passed by that body during its coming session
and setting forth good and sufficient
reasons therefor. The short horses of the
previous legislatures have imagined that as
the principal movers in the matter were
newspaper men, that the passage of an
law would inure solely tu their
bent tit, forgetting tho amount of property
belouging to litigants annually sacrificed
because a written notice of its sale posted
at the court-house is sometimes all the ad
vertising it pels
A MEMUKK of Congress is allowed 20 cts
per mile going to and returning' from Vah

Congreee. The average received by tt.e
members was $330 50, the delegate from
Arizona, who was allowed for 4,000 miles,
receiving $1 GOO. It is said that a bill will
be introduced to cut the amount down to
actual expenees, but it will not become a
law. The mileage grab is too good a thing
ever to be surrendered without a terrible
Thk fellow, Bellows, wno was hung in
Iowa Friday for the murder of the girl,
who refused to entertain his suit for her
hand, was taken to the gallows by force
and held by four men while the noose was
being adjusted. He raved, swore and fought
with the desperation of u tiger and it was
not till the drop was sprung that he gave
up the unequal contest. The scene is described
as one of the most terrible ever witnessed
and strong men turned away in
It is cot certain mat Sam Hill's district
will return a republican Senator, in fact it
is more than probable that it will not. The
democrats have nominated a popular can
didate in the peison cf Hamilton Reisinger
and the likelihood ie that be will wipe up
the earth with the old ignoramus, Lewie
Jones, the republican nominee who during
his pievions term in the legislature did
nothing further than make an ass of himself.
A NHORO fiend criminally assaulted a
white woman in Smith county, Miss., and
to prevent her telling on him, he forced
her tongue out of her mouth and cut it ofl
as far down as he could reach. She recognized
him and managed to scrawl his nainn
en a sheet of paper. The cilizDs have
turned out to hunt him down and his hide
will not hold shucks after they have caught
and properly Miended to him.
