Letcher and Warden Happy May lie Removed. INSPECTOR LESTER MENDS IT. TIioOiiim's Alleged Arc Incoinpo tency and Inactivity and Lack of Kxecutlvo Ability. THE REPORTS TO BE FILED SOON, Frankfort, Jan. 18. Mr. C. W. Loiter, 'lie state Inspector nnd Ex nmiuer, is about to create n sensation in Kentucky Itcpiiblicnn politics. The inspector lias begun tho preparation of his reports to tho governor on tho i audition of tho recently investigated affairs of the Hopkiusvillc Asylum for tho Insane and tho Eddyville branch penitentiary. Mr. Lester admits that he has taken 300 pages of type written testimony nt Hopkinsvillo and more than 600 pages at Eddyvillc. Whnt all this means or will mean is positively learned from another source The inspector has nlrcndy demonstrated tho fact thnt he is a cour ageous olllccr without fear or favor for those whom his duty compels him to investigate Ho has some heroic remedies to suggest to tho Governor nnd through him to the pris on commissioners. Mr. Lester is going to recommend the displacement of Superintendent Hen Letcher, of tho Hopkinsvillo Asylum, nnd of Warden Happy, of the Eddyvillc prison. He is also going to recommend tho appointment and election in their stead of a new Superintendent nnd n new Warden. In doing this he is not going to reflect on the personal or olllcial integrity of either of these gentlemen, but will ascribe the tangible and unsatisfactory condition of things at the two institutions to lack of competency, inactivity aud lack of executive ability ou the part of the Superiulcndc.it and tho Warden. . Ilumordiss it that n' third institution, closer to Frankfort and of a different character, may come in for the same sort of recommendation in sofar as its head is concerned. WHIT OF LUNACY.

'iho hall proper is 21 by 61 feet, neatly papered and carpeted, and furnished in oak and bard maple Tho altar and olllcers' tions are the product of homo manufacturers, in ado in tho best manner, and of design consistentjwitb the symbolism of the fraternity. Connected with the lodge room and to one side of the anteroom, so that degree work may be done with the maximum of case and effect, is the property room, and nmmcliatey' beyond thesc'two, comprising the entire front breadth of the building, with a Uroadway view, is tiie reception room, commodious i.nd beautiful. It has connection witli the stairway independent of any other apartment, and is intended to serve as a library as well. This latter idea is one of the strongest marks of the new ambi tion which thoroughly permeates the inembeiship. and they anticipate no such tiling as failure The location of the building for this purpose, as for nil other uses they have for it, is perfect , aud altogether, those who may take opportunity nt any liino to look through the premises will hold Faducali's 1'ythians blameless in the pride they frel.

Charles Livingston Brought Here From Fulton. PASSED BAD HALF DOLLARS. ouo of Ilia Victims Overtook Him nnd Shot nt Him. L0D6ED IN THE COUNTY JAIL- Deputy Sheriff M. L. Roscoc, of Faltou, accompanied by Mr. J. D. Taylor, of tbo same place, arrived in Hie city on the 8o'clock train over tho Illinois Central this morning in chargo of Charles Livingston, a young white man who is charged with counterfeiting, and with passing counterfeit half dollars. For some time past spurious coin has been in circulation In Fulton, and yesterday Livingston was detected in the act of passing it and promptly taken into custody. Ho had been in Fulton but a Abort time.and claims New Albany. Iod., as his home. He informed the ofllcer who had him In charge that ho had been "on tho hog'-' since J8D4, and his appearance bears him out in his claim. Oue'ot tho half dollars was passed on Mr. J. D. Tayloronc of the men who came up this morning, and after the' arrival of the train, the trio, with the prisoner frequently blowing on his manacled hands to drive away the numbness, proceeded to United States Commissioner Furycar's oflice, where Mr. Taylor swore out a warrant against Livingston. . The three half dollars were left nlth the federal officer as evidence, size and appearance arc being deficient only in weight. John Barnard, colored, one of the witnesses, testified before Commissioner: I'urycar tuistnorning that Saturday the defendant entered Jim Barnard's grocer' nt Fulton, where tho witness is a clerk', and called for some tobacco. He tendered a half dollar, in payment, and was given 45 cents change. When the money was dropped into tho drawer it sounded like counterfeit and the witness it and ascertained that HR He followed "Livingston lloHbilroad track and oidcred hinWRft, drawing a pistol. The tramp also drew a pistol and tho cictk fired to frighten him. Livingston bad previously passed a similar coin on Mr. Taylor, who keeps a butcher shop, for a nickle's worth of cheese lie said he was hungry, out of work nnd almost penniless and at first Taylor did not intend to charge him, but saw him with several bilf dollars and then concluded to exact the usual amount. Tho half dollar proved to be 'queer." Livingston himself told Commissioner I'urycar at tho preliminary trial that his homo is in Louisville, nnd that ho did not know tho money was counterfeit. He was held over to await tho action of tho next federal grand jury in April, nnd in default of a 6500 bond went to jail. MARKETS. (Ueporled Dally tj Lcy Grain Companjr.) Ciiijaoo, Jnn. 18.
