The death of Henry V. Grntly, tho
gifted editor and orator, is a serious blow
td the South, of which ho wns so fond a
lover and so gallant a defender. As editor
of the Atlanta Constitution he wielded
a vast influence and his utterances as
an orator invariably commanded universal
attention and respect. At n banquet
given by the Now England Society two
years ago he delivered a speech on the
South, which was a masterpiece of eloquence
and nn earnest appeal for brotherly
love and intercourse between the
sections. His last public appearance was
in Boston recently, when he Bpoke on
the race problem, with his usual broadness
of views and statesmanship. He
contracted pneumonia on the trip and
died a few days after his return in the
full flush of ft noble career. The South,
and indeed the whole country, mourns
over his untimely death.
On our first pnge will be found the full
text of an act entitled the Law of Libel,
which was adopted at the last meeting ot
the Kentucky Press Association and ordered
to be presented to the Legislature,
with theTequest that it be made the
law. A committee will see that it is
presented, but every newspaper man in
the State is interested in the matter and
should make it a point to urge upon the
member from his countv to support the
measure. Another committee was or
dered to be appointed to secure the pass-ago
of a uniform advertising law and
these are therefore to remind President
E. Polk Johnson that if he has not already
done so the naming of that committee
is in order.
The Georgetown Times is 23 years old.
It was started by its present owner and
editor, Hon. John A. Bell, who has been
in charge of it the entire time. The
Times is a good pacer and the fact that
:00 or more of its subscribers have been
with it from the start shows how much
it is appreciated. In certain contingencies
Bro. Bell promises a semi-weekly
and Bays that the Times will blossom into
a daily when the town has 10,000 in-habitants,
which may occur in tho near
future, as it is rapidly becoming a place
It is with deep regret that we chronicle
the death of John II. Woodcock, of
Lancaster. A gentler, purer, lovelier
spirit never inhabited human body, nor
was man more beloved than he by all
who knew him. Hundreds of friends
unite with his grief stricken wife in genuine
sorrow over her terrible loss. May
she find consolation in looking to the
God of Love and Nothing Else, in Whom
his faith was so steadfastly fixed. Col.
W. S. Millor, n devoted friend, pays his
memory a loving tribute in another column.
JudueFikley was pretty badly turned
down by Speaker Reed, who does not
measure the mountain statesman with
the tape line that ho uses for himself and
which some of his admirers affect to use.
Ho is much displeased with his committee
assignments and says he will refuse
them when Congress reconvenes next
month. This is all gas, though. Finley
ought to have sense enough to know that
a man can be a hades of a fellow at Williamsburg
and still bo the little end of
nothing at Washington.
C0M.KCT011 Scorr, of the Louisville district,
is not enjoying tho holiday season
to any great extant. Most of his bondsmen
have asked to be released on the
grounds that ho is incompetent for the
.duties of tho office and has no regard for
a promise whatever. Scott hays they
are prevaricators and that he can get
other bondsmen just as easy, but we
shall see what we shall see.
Tub directors of tho L. it N. Co. have
presented tho widow of Conductor Lemon,
who was murdered in discharge of
his duty, with 20 shares of stock in tho
road, valued at over $2,000, made up by
their individual contributions. Corpo
rations may have no souls, but these
gentlemen have demonstrated that they
Senator Beck seems to be losing his
mind as well as his health. His gusli
over Senator Allison, of Iowa, whom he
lauds to the skies, and says his State
would disgrace itself by not returning
him to the Senate, is especially senile
when we consider how bitter and ultra
are his protective ideas.
The Clarksville, Tenn., Progress outdid
them all. It issued a 10-page, 7-column
paper, teeming with advertisements
and good things. Loving Gaines
has evidently got a gold mine.
The dailies are loaded down as usual
with accounts of. killings, accidents and
deaths. It is always bo at this time of
the year, when peace on earth, good
will to rnen should prevail.
Louisville has lost.by flro this year
Ucorge Nell has been appointed postmaster
Einerv's Sons' soap works burned
at Cincinnati; loss $50,000.
New postofllces have been established

L. it N. trains killed J. E. Laird, a
10-year-old boy, at Horse Cave and David
Keller, at South Louisville.
Ollie Francis, while intoxicated, was
fatally stabbed in a saloon at Lexington.
Several persons have been arrested
charged with tho crime.
.Mrs. Irene Skeels, who shot and
killed her husband for paying attention
to other women, was acquitted at Spokane
Vicksburg, .Miss.,lwas visited bv a
disastrous fire Tuesday night. Five business
houses were burned and the total
loss will exceed $100,000; partially insur
J. R. Kaven, a wealthy Englishman
from Liverpool, committed suicide near
Austin, Texas, Tuesday, by blowing
the top of his head oil'. He had been
unsuccessful in love.
The Louisville leaf tobacco snles at
auction closed Tuesday, with 132,702
hogsheads for the year, which is over'
40,000 more than in 1SSS. There is no
other city in the world that near reaches
her in such sales.
John Wehner caught his wife in a
questionable attitude with a young clerk
at Baltimore and siezing a razor rushed
for tho fellow, who jumped out of a history
window and escaped. He then
turned on tho woman and cut her nose
off close to her face.
A race riot was precipitated at Jos-sup,
Ga., by the killing of two white citizens
by a negro desperado named Ben
Bremer, who, with a number of negro
companions, fled to the swamps. They
were surrounded by armed whites and
the fight between the two sides was in
progress during tho night. One white
man wns killed and a number of negroes
are supposed to have fallen.

Under the head "Caught with a Kodak,"
our Gov. Jim Givcns is thus photographed
in the Louisville Critic: "A
face as broad as a barn door and a mind
I as deep as one of his own natural gas
wells, llio kindliest, gentlest, oiliest,
inoit unsuspecting smile; had BretHarte
met it sooner his immortal poem would
have been addressed to "Ah Jim" instead
of "Ah Sin." A laugh that befits
his round body and that gurgles and
like old wine reluctantly leaving
a bottle. He has enough stock in
I land, gas and mining companies to paper
1 tho expanso of the eternal heavens, and
j if his holdings ever touch par the inter-'
est on them will pay the national debt.
Tho personification of that latter-day genius
a promoter a cross between a boomer
and a plunger. He knows enough
law to make a living out of it if his path
was not strewn with better opportunities.
There's a shrewdness behind his
simple, plausible greeting that many a
wiser man might envy."
