Ellison 000rbjthe oitv of St. Louis for the St. Louis World's Fair in 1003, and a vote nn a constitutional amendment allowing the State to appropriate 81000,000 for the same purpose, Dewey Day was formally celebrated Monday at Chicago, Pliila delphia and other cities. In a less pronounced fashion the day was generally observed elsewhere. At Manilla Dewey's fleet suspended drill iu honor of the day, and all the British aud American ships iu the harbor were decorated. A decision on a phase of the whiBky question that will be of general interest, was handed down last week by the Court of Appeals in a case appealed from Mercer county. The question involved was whether the County Court had the riput to order an election on the liquor question in the city of Harrodsbnrg within three yearB from the time a similar election had been held in the county. The vote was taken in the county December 5, 189G, and the majority was against its sale. A vote was taken in the city of Ilarrodsburg on May 10, 18118. The lower court held that the city could hold an election on the question at any time independent of the county action, aud this judgment whs affirmed. r Kallroail Time Table. N., 0. & St. L. R. K.

The Wade Court of Inquiry, charged with the duty of investigating the charges made by Gen. Miles, the of the United States armies, which were in' pubstance that beef hud been famished for food to the soldiers, that much of it had been thrown away ns putrid, and (hat some of it had beeu "embalmed," or chemically treat- ea, "expenmeotinB" to preserve it, has mude its report, or verdict, in which they claim that General Miles' charges have not beeu sua tamed. Newspaper readers hnvo long since been persuaded that there was an immense amount of unwholesome beef furnished, that it made the soldiers sick, but who was at fault about it was not so clear. This Court of Inquiry ex press the opinion that the beef was furuished in good condition, bat that the climate and impossibility of handling it properly by army was the oause of not preserving it 10 wholesome condition. Therefore, no one was distinctly to blame for it. The report Is n condemnation of the Commander. in-Chief, nnd sustains the Commissary Department. There appears to have been, from the beginning of the war, an ugly feeling betweeu Gen. Miles aud the Secretary of War, and many believe those charges to be the outgrowth of this antagonism. Some newspapers think that Gen. Miles will be relieved of his posi tiOD. Kentucky will have eleven Census Supervisors, one for each Congressional District. The.
