STANFORD, KY., NOVEMBER 12, 1889 W. P. WALTON. DEMOCRATIC TICKET. For County Judge, THOMAS W. VARNONj - Co unty Attorney, JOSEPH II. 1'AXTON; " County Cletk, OKORGE D. COOPER; " Shorifl, J. N. MEN'EFF.E; " Jailer, SAMUEL M. OWENS; Ateor, ft. D. KENNEDY; ' Sup't of Common Schools, W. F McCLAHY " Survejor, HARRY A. EVANS; " Coroner. ARCH CAUSON Judge Lkwis writes to the Cincinnati Commercial-Gazette giving what he claims to be the true statement of the Harlan county war so far us it affects his action in the mateer. It shows that be went in with a determination to law and order by capturing Wils Howard and his crowd of desperadoes, or make them llee from the country. His posse killed and wounded a few of them and the Judge adds: "As it is reported that Wilson Howard and William Jennings, his associate in crime, have left this country and prob.ibly gone to parti unknown, I hope peace is te tored and business will revive." Whatever may have been the ulterior motive of Judgj Lewis in the matter ho certainly deserves the approbation and plaudits of every good citizen of the State for restoring law and order in his lawless section. The Owensboro Inquirer is making life burdensome to Commonwealth's Attorney Noe, who was caught in a gambling house at Hawesville shullling the cards and betting at a lively rate. In other words aiding and abiding a felony he had sworn to prosecute. The valiant law-breaker, who deserves impeachment did not deny tho charge, but buckled on his pistols and marched tip and down tho street, pretending to be anxious to meet the editors who had exposed him, thereby adding further to his evident unfitness to hold a public tnwt. The editors are not alarmed, however, but are shooting tho proof of his direliction of duty to him without fear and with an pyo singlo to the public good. Bros. Ford & Givens, wo congratulate you! John L. Bosley, who for four years has made the Winchester Sun an conservative, readable and reliable paper, has sold it to a stock company and will retire from the business, which lias brought him mbre fame than filthy lucre. With Farris Feland already gone this makes two of tho four distinguished editors that Hanging Fork produced, to leave the profession they filled with credit' J M. D. Hughes and A. A. Lewis are still holding up their end of the log, but Lewis stands a chance to get a fat government office and quit tho business, while Hughes is likely to break into a lunatic asylum, though he has telegraped us at at our expense that he is not. Ti!KGlas!0v Times celebrated its 24th birth day by issuing a paper four times the size of this and filling it with the good things Editor Richardson knows so well how to get up. Tho Times is one of tho best papers anywhere and this statement of its aims and purposes will be recognised as eminently correct by every reader of it: "Striving always for the pure and clean in journalism; yielding its convictions to none, but aiming at justice to all; standing by its friends; never hitting its enemies below tho belt and having few, thank God, to hit anywhere; nerving the public with that sometimes erred, but hearts that never betray history of The Times has been that of uninterrupted, steady advancement." The New Yora Sim has already hoisf -d the names of Gov. Hill, of New York, and Campbell, of Ohio, for president and vice-president in i"J'2, with this platform: "The permanent return of tho democracy to the control of the Federal government." Tho Sun as usual is kicking agaiiiBt the pricks Cleveland will be and deserves to bo tho democratic nominee for president in 1892. Another editor, J. T. Pryor, of the Paris Iter ord, is to bo married, making about a dozen Kentucky to enter the matrimonial estate this fall. If the thinj: continues there will hardly' be a single man left to entertain the girls at the Winchester meeting next year, but wo older Benedicts will be there or thereabouts willing to keep up tho reputation of tho Association for gallantry. There are already numorous aspiranU for tho Ohio Senatorship, which Senator Payne says ho will on no condition c copt for another term, as ho is 79 years old and feels tho of withdrawing from public life. John It. McLean, editor of the Enquirer, says be would not have it, but tbo woods are fullof those who would. Col. Hrico may possibly be chosen. The republicans in Kentucky seem to ho doing all in their power to retain tho name for her of tbo dark and bloody ground. Tho blue-grass has joined liands with Harlan and tho mountain counties, apparently, to keep tho stigma upon her. The democratic majority in Ohio is nbout 12,000; ; hiVirgJifla about -13,000 mid in Iowa about 7000.

Kentucky will never lose her notoriety for bloodshed till there is a complete revulsion, of sentiment with regard to settlement of differences by personal violence, ihstcad of the means always at band. Nor until her citizens cease to mako hero-worship to those who bathe their hands Innnother's blood. Harrison carried Massachusetts by .2,0:i7. This year the republican candidate for governor has a pitiful plurality of 5,'JS4, and yet the old phariseo Fays he can see nothing in the result that on his administration. In a total vote of more than L'oO.OOO in the State tho prohibitionists polled 1 :!,&!, which was doing pretty well for them. A very large por cent, of the brains of tho republican party in Kentucky is lost in the tbo deaths of Swope and Goodloe. They weie a brainy pair and there places can scarcely be filled from the material to select from in the State. The Alexander Hotel, Louisville, has been sold to the Miller Ilros., of Tennessee, who will shortly take charge. 'Un cle Joe" Alexander will feel like a fish out of water with no hotel to look after.

They givo a performance both instructive and entertaining and such a troupe is seldom seen here. Tho "microbe killer" is causing as much of a sensation here as the gold discovery did in California in the year Ml). Several of our best citizens have tried it for variouscomplaints, indigestion, dyspepsia, rheumatism, Ac, and all pronounce wonderful benefits derived from its -use. Jim Burnside says he bought a jug of microbe (?) a few days since and was taking it home for his brother-in-law's use, who had been an invalid for several years. Ho was stopped all along the street by old men with dippers, wo men with goblets and children with mugs all crying and begging for just one dose of tho life elixir. Before he reached home he found ho had dispensed with almost the entire contents of the jug, but his liberal nature caused no complaint and he seemed contented with the belief that he had put several in declining health on tho road to vigor and happiness.
