TIioOiiim's Alleged Arc Incoinpo
tency and Inactivity and
Lack of Kxecutlvo
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.

30G Broadway. They have now perhaps
tho most convenient, and among

and furnished in oak and bard
maple Tho altar and olllcers'

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

There have been two regular meetings
of the lodge postponed on account
of the unavoidable delay iu the

the prisoner frequently blowing on

warrant against Livingston.
