fix m & i w Semi-Weekly InteriorJournal Stanford, Ky., Aran. " , 1888 W. F WALTON. Tiik Thomas hill now hefore the legis lutttro to jirevent discrimination and ex tortion by railroads, is a decided improvement on the present railroad commission law, which it repeals. It for the appointment of tlnee assessors, whose sole duty it will 1)6 to assess the property of the railroad companies and from whose decision there is to Imj no appeal. Kxtortion and discrimination are defined and heavy penalties imposed against them, the prosecution to he in the name of the Commonwealth ami to lw conducted by her attorney. In a word, the bill more effectually than anything yet devised protects the interests of the shipper and the communities affected by railroad transportation, as the resort is to the courts and not an appeal to a commission, which has prov ed a worthless luxury. If the legislature is not entirely given over to the blandishments of the commission lobby it will pass Mr. Thomas' bill and thus redeem itself in a measure from the charge of having done nothing of importance during the session of nearly a hundred days. It js just .: next Monday .since (Jen. Ixm; surrendered his army to Gen. Grant at Appomattox and its famous apple tree, yet in the month of March, in the good year 1SS8, 24,858 applications for pensions were filed at Washington, the greatest number in the history of the P.ureau, except in 1880, when there was a great rush before the expiration of the arrearage act. The statement is also made that in the last seven months over !?:;00,000 in fees have been paid by the department to pension attorneys. And still these voracious rascals are crying for more. It is these shysters, the toffee-coolers and camp-followers w ho are howling for a bill to pension everybody. The best ami bravest of those who fought to save the country are not in f.ivor of turning it over to pension sharks and IwUnty jumpers. Awo.Mixat Howling Green, bedrid den for seven years, and at the time of her healing supposed to be at the point ot death, declared that the church bells seemed to say, d'Mrs. Cassady, arise and walk!" So she arose without fuither ceremony and taking up her bed walked all about shouting that the Lord had made her whole. People who believe that the days of miracles are past won't take much stock in this story, which comes pretty straight, but will say that the old lady simply imagined herself sick, when really she ought to have been up and attending to her household affairs. CixciNXiTi went republican as usual by about LV'OO majority in the judge's rare; only six out of :4 couneilmen elected are democrats, but four of IS school board members, while every man of the hoard of aldermen is a republican. The Iniljana municipal elections show decided democratic gains, while in Michigan the democrats: seem to have had things mostly their own way. These straws show which way the At this distance it looks like a joke for the Courier-Journal and Times printers, who muck some thiee months nun, to go through the loriuulity of declaring the strike off. It was off the next day it occurred, so far as those papers and the public were concerned. The result hits Veen only to the disadvantage of the strikers, who lot good places simply because they were not allowed complete control of Mr. Haldeman's business. JnxiK M. J. Di uiiiM decides tliat witness claims are only payable to this person to whom issued and there in the ciiiup of those who have been buying such claims at tremendous discount. A great many witnesses are taken long distances to court simply for the prolit their fees aie to ollicers and others and the conti oiler's decision will have the effect of abating a veiy great abuse. JJkxi. H. Ihtnwsi kh, attorney general under Arthur, died in Philadelphia, Wednesday, aged 7- Ho was a and although a republican, was not a bitter paitisan. When a child he fell in the lire and had his face horribly disfigured, but with this disadvantage he rose to high position and died honored and inspected by both parties. l p takes! u column 'and a half in the Now York Voice fur Neil Dow, the gieat prohibition apostle, to explain why he was so overwhelmingly defeated for mayor of Poitland, .Me., and een then it smatteis somewhat of tho Character of explanations that do not expla'n. lie didn't get votes enough, is the principal reason he wasn't elected.
