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

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
