Staicford, Ky.,- June 27, 1893 W. P. WALTON. 6 OR 8 PAGES. v EVERY Owing to a frivolous objection State Treasurer Hale has refused to confirm the lease of the 400 convicts to the Mason A Foard Company and the deal is off. The treasurer seems to have made a reputation as a weak and vacillating man and this additional confirmation of the fact fully establishes it. Tho action of Hale is a victory for Gov. Brown, who the LouiBville Commercial says, has announced his intention to drive the concern from the State because members of the Mason & Foard Company favored Gen. Watt Hardin against John Young Brown for the democratic nomination for governor. The latter charge is made unequivocally and must therefore be accented as true until it 1b denied authoritatively. It goes to prove that the governor is a very small man, even smaller than his enemies imagined, and that the people made a mistake in electing him their chief executive. The Mason-Foard Company is entirely responsible and as it seems it is the only firm willing to help take the white elephant off the hands of the State, no private or personal reasons should be taken into consideration in dealing with so im portant a public matter. We hope the governor has been misquoted and that our good opinion of him will remain unchanged. Never in the history of the State have administration matters been in such a muddle as at present in The Sinking Fund Commiesioni which sees after the penitentiary and other institutions, is torn into factions, each of which appears to think of personal victory more than the interests of the State. The lateBt war to break out is between Treasurer Hale and Secretary of State Headley, but aa it is so far-entirely on paper, no serious results are anticipated. The former published a card reflecting on the latter, who characterized it, also in a card, as"malicious unmanly, cowardly, false and contempt-able," adding that "he can settle his grievances with me without calling on the public." This eeems to call for a fight, but it will end in smoke to be re vived later on. A nice kettle of fish is that at Frankfort, to be sure. The people of Kentucky will have greater cause for rejoicing on the "Glorious Fourth" than they have had for years. The Senate has adopted the House resolution to adjourn sine die July 3d and clinched it beyond possibility of reconsideration. Praise God from Whom all blessings flow ! Tho body has cost the State more than half a million of dollars and the benefit is so small it it can hardly be reckoned in dollars and cents. Let" us give thanks when the cormorant has at last voluntarily relinquished the pap it has taken with bo much voraciousness. It has been demonstrated that there are mm on the pension lists who are drawing monthly stipends from the government for no other cause than that they are bald. If Brer. Polk Johnson bad fit on the right side, wouldn't he be wallowing in clover now? Like poor Uucle Ned, he hasn't even a suspicion of capallary substance on the summit of bis cranium, the place that the substance ought to vegetate. In obdkr to relieve the money market by putting $7,534,000 in circulation Secretary Carlisle has given notice that the July interest due on government bonds July 1, will be paid at once. This plan was adopted under the last administration and worked most satisfactorily. The money is lying in the treasury idle and had just as well be doing the country some good. TnK Columbia Spectator is an enterprising paper.! Instead of telling how Gen. Wolford, whose home is in its town, was at tho time of goiug to press, it copied a dispatch two days old from. the Courier-Journal. This is a Strange way to ruu a local newspaper. The sugar bounty law will put 87 into the pockets of the sugar growers this year without justice or reason. This is one of the many unjust statutes passed by the republicans, which the new order of things ought to erase as quickly as possible. The article in our last issue with reference to the establishment of factories here has already brought letters from practical men. Tho manager of the Furniture Manufactory, who is aa experienced man, desires to start a similar concern here. Tukrb's never a sweet without its bitter. The adjournment of the Legislature will cause the suspension of the Daily Frankfort Capital and its return to the weekly form. We shall miss its pleasant daily visits. The Senate killed the Bennett dog law and if the farmers would march upon Frankfort and kill the Senate it would be nothing more than retributive justice. - nerves to have to grin silence. V - ilfl When Mrs. Jefferson Davis arrived at West roint. Saturday, she was met and warmly welcomed by Mrs. U. S. Grant. This evidence of disloyalty on the part of Mrs. Grant is shocking. But what are tho republican papers going to do about it? They can't help themselves and it will be very grinding on the and bear it in It is said that figures won't lie, but the average farmer will say that Brer Harry Summers ia Bomewhat of a liar himself when he attempts to prove by them that wheat can be raised profitably at (K) cents. That gentleman figurea that at 20 bushels to the acre a profit of 33J per cent, is possible. It muy be pos sible, but it is not very probable. Another ex. catches onto his old job. Thomas 0. Jones, of this State, has been appointed consul at Funchal, Madeirai the same position he held under Cleveland's former administration. He is an uncle of Senator Lindsay's wife and thnt accounts for the milk in the cocoanut. The Senator seems to be very near the the throne of grace. It is worth the Geneva consulate to Ben Ridgely ten times over to have his old boss, Marse Henry Watterson,, write so prettily about him, as he did in a lengthy editorial in the Courier-Journal. It must have made him feel good all over and caused his hat band to burst, if anything could. Princess Kulalis with her ISo trunks, all ae large as small-sized cottages, has left us and we common people of the United States will have to scuffle along as before without the presence of royalty. It is very sad, but by bracing up sufficiently we may be able to stand it, for awhile at least. Tiik World's Fair management will attempt to carry water on both shoulders by running wide open on Sundays and holding religious services in the afternoon, seemingly to forget that it is written, "Ye cannot serve God and mam mon. Dan K. O'Sullivan, of the Louisville Critic, is a candidate for the State Senate and if brains and "get-up" count for anything, he is us sure for the place as a cent is for a ginger cake.

Tho Sunday attendance at the World's Fair is a disappointment to the management. Only 71,lt3 people visited the great show Sunday, tho workingmen and their families not turning out aa upon previous Sundays. The falling off is attributed to the closing of the United States exhibits and the closing down of the machinery. DANVILLE. A daughter is a lato arrival at the home of Capt. Thos. H. Bell.

Now what sized enclosure constitutes a "pen"? is the question which agitates the justice distributing powers. Archie, the 10 year old son of Mr. W. G. Dunlap, fell from a clifi' neHr "Lover's Leap," on Meaux's Branch, dislocated his collar bone and bruised himself badly. Hu will soon be out, but it is marvelous how he escaped with his life. Attorneys have informed the I. J. that next Wednesday a suit for ;5,000 damages will be filed in behalf of F. A. White, the patent medicine man, against T. A.

Interest continues to grow' and the largo crowds aro held spellbound by the eloquent and yet simple manner in which the scriptures aro explained by Messrs. Briney and Frank. The latter, though but a mere .boy, bids fair to make a name for himself in the pulpit. Much regret was expressed at (the departure of C. E.
