Since several candidates have fallen
Into line for the contest for tho democratic
nomination for Congress In tho
Eighth district, there Is much comment
as to the prospect and tho availability
of the several candidate-, it looks now-like
there will be a candidate trom
nearly every county In the district and,
of eourso, ditTercnt claims are urged;
but the claim which should be regarded
as paramount to all others, is the
ability to win and tudeeui the district.
Kvery true democrat should ask the
question can he bout any republican
at tho iwlle? If he can not. ho should
not bo nominated, no dtrtoreuce how
competent lie Is. Personal preference
should be discarded and territorial
claims should bo ignored in making the
nomination, unless the ability to win
rests whore tho claims are niado. experience
has taught that It is tinwlso to
bo lud astray by county and porsoiial
considerations. It should bo remem
bered that the district is uncomfortably
close, oven with Jackson county out.
Three factious will outer Into the race,
which will draw largely from tho democratic
ranks tho so-called National
democrats, tho prohibitionists and tho
populist. How far they will oflcct the
voto depends largely on the man who is
nominated. If ho is conservative and
not abuslvo tho opposition will not bo
so great from these factions.

HIS CANDIDACY ItKCKIVKD WITH
HI'.AUTV ltNCONML'MS. I
A Danville correspondent says that
Gov. McCreary has much the host of
the Congressional race as it now stands,
amounting to a walk over.
Gov. McCroary's many friends In
this county are coutldent ho will secure
the nomination and be triumphantly
elected. Mt. Vernon Signal.
Tho Shclbyvllle Sentinel, which Is
for Gilbert, says It can not bo denied
that the Madl&on county statesman
will be a dangerous factor in the race.
Tho eighth is an extremely doubtful
district, but Got . McCreary has never
failed to carry it. It would probably
bo tho part of wisdom for the democrats
of the Cighth to concede him a
Gov. McCreary's record In Congress
Is sutliclent evidence of his ability and
is ample justification for tho nsscrtlon
that thcdlstrlet will bo represented by
a capable and experienced man If ho
should bo nominated and elected.
It Is a fuct that Mr. McCreary made
one of the best governors Kontucky
over had: and as a member of Congress
ho was noted for his Industry, energy
and promptness. Read his card, he
strikes from tho shoulder out and
states his position without equivocation
or evasion. Han odsburir
Mr. McCreary needs no Introduction
to our readers, having sorvod several
tonus In Congress, thus making both
a State and national reputation. If
Mr McCreary should be the choice
of his party for this olllco tho demo
crats of the Fighth district can rest assured
that he will not be the hindmost
man nt the November olcctlon. Jessamine
In Congress Go" McCreary was a
leador, and his sericos on the International
him with every phase of the
curreticy question. He was for international
bimetallism us long n& he had
hopes of an international agreement,
but when he became convinced that
such hopes were delusive ho took his
stnnd with democracy for the free and
unlimited coinage of silver at the ratio
of 1(1 to 1 Independent of the action of
any other nation. Ho has repeatedly
carried his district when It was republican
ami if nominated will carry It
again. Tho district is close us at present
organised, the democratic majority
not exceeding 100. There will be three
or more candidates in the lield, and
harmony should prevail, because without
it tho nominee uould not win. - Louisville
Gov. McCreary Is easily the strongest
man In tho district and nothing
seems more certain thin that he will
be nominated. Ho was a member of
the International Monetary Commission,
representing, with Senator Allison
and Prof. Andrews, this country In
the deliberations of that conference
hold at Brussels. Ho was for years a
member of the foreign atlalrs committee
of the lower House of Congress,
and when the democrats controlled the
body, chairman of the committee. Tho
tunes are critical and thoy demand
safe, conservative and experienced
men to guide the ship through the
troubled waters that seem to Ho just
before us. Gov. McCreary Is the candidate
of no one Interest, represents no
prejudice, soeks no sellish end, but in
response to the demands made upon
him by the democrats of tho district
who desire a man who can redeem it
from republicanism and represent It
worthily, he submits his candidacy as
a democrat, who can redeem the district,
to democrats who demaud that it
be Richmond Register.
A little boy prayed: "Lord, please

Kev. James Hedges, a pioneer Baptist
preacher, who had boon in the ministry

Tho Louisville Crlticsays: There is
a suspicion In well Informed quarters
that Dr. Eaton wants to drive Dr.
Whltsltt from tho control of tho Baptist
Seminary, so that ho can take his
place. This new breach of the peace
has been timed so us to try to Intluonco
tho Baptist convention, which will bo
held somo timo within tho next few
months, to depose Dr. Whltsltt.
A visit to Llvincston a few days ago
m prossed nn I. J. reporter with the
ti'iithfnlnu i of the reports that that
town Is rapidly growing and gives
promise of being ono of the biggest
and best towns In the mountains. The
L. ifc N. Railroad Co. Is "struck" on
tne place and will leave nothing undone
to promote Its Interosts, having
considerable Interest there Itself.
The frame work of the new depot is
nbout completed and when the building
is turned over to tne company it will
be "a thing of beauty." but It will not
prove "a joy forever" to the dispatchers
who will occupy It. for It is like
pulling eye teeth for them to leave
Stanford. It is located about 200 yards
from the old depot, is three stories
high, very modern In structure and
will be by far the prettiest depot on
tho K. D.
Not far from this, William Fields, a
Lincoln county man, but who yet holds
a lot of property at Livingston, Is building
a three-story hotel which will con.
tain 23 or .'10 rooms and which will materially
help tho appearance of the
Adjoining this hotel Master of Trains
B. N. Roller has bought a pretty lot
and will build a resldonce. Dispatcher
J. A. Mudd bus an option on a lot close
to Mr. Roller's and will build on it if
he buys. Chief Shondun Is not
in love there to buy property,
but If Livingston grows on a person like
the inhabitants say, he may do so soon.
Three hotels uod a dozen or so boarding
houses do a good business and some
12 or 13 stores are kept busy from curly
till late. W. R. Dillloti, who ran a free
hotel nt Dllllon's Switch for years, now
enjoys a good businoss in the boom
town of Rockcastle. Ho Is forced to

his boarders hardly miss the
W.J. Sparks is one of the busiest

the stores. He, with his partners, Is
building an immense store-house in the
heart of town and will move the stock

more, who ii-ed to run tho "short dog"
between Corbin and Jelllco, now run a

George D. Pope, who has taken the

making money out of his boarding
house, while II. W. Rice, another good
subscriber nnd ex-Lincoln man, Is

A. Pettus, formerly of Crab Orchard,
has almost a monopoly In the drug line
and ought to do well. J. Thomas Terry,
Lincoln's ox-assessor, enjoys a cood
trade In the grocery and butcher business
and is rapidly catching on to city
ways. Cotlcy says he is getting

general opinion that ho has a strong
