Bat the Election Contest Boards Declare Him Governor of Kentacky. While walkiug through the capital frpATiiula at "Frankfort. Kentucky. on his way to the capitol building, at ten minutes after eleven o'clock, Tuesday morning, William Goebel, the Democratic contestee for Gov-] M.: ernor of Kentucky, was shot down by a concealed assassih, and very j dangerously wounded. That night, while he was lying in a very preca; rious condition at a nearby hotel the contesting boards, which for two weeks have bef-n listening to the evidence in his contest for the Governor's chair, declared him enp titled to the seat. During the entire sitting of the boards Frankfort has been filled with armed mountaineers, friends of ^ Governor Taylor, the Republican It claimant, who have been quartered in the capitol aud in adjacent I I buildings. The shot that struck down Governor Goebel was fired from a rifle of thirty-eight calibre, using smokeless powder. The assassin was secreted on the third % floor of a building about fifty feet east of the capitol building, and *it w?s evidently a deliberate plot to mnrder, for the window of the room was open. The first bullet fired struck the Governor in the right side just below the arm pit. It passed through the back part of the right lung, coming out below the "left shoulder blade. Many shots were fired, but only one took effect. ** < ? ? .1 /~\ , me aocior8 say tne uoveruor nas a fighting chance for his life, and he, himself, declares that he is not going to die. Harland Whittaker, a farmer from Governor Taylor's home county, has been arrested, charged with being the assassin. He denies his guilt The military forces of the State have been ordered out, and if ^ Governor Goebeliliau4^rh^ 7-" > ble is apprehended. It is likely that the legislature 'has already met and recognized the authority of William Goebel, as Governor. The Kepublicans will probably apply for an injunction to the United States circuit court, restraining Goebel, and his Lieutenant Governor, Beckham, from taking their seats. L. T.

The readers of this paper will l?e pleased to learn that there is at least one dreaded disease that science has been able to cure in all its stages and that is catarrh. Hall's Catarrh Cure is the only posij tive cure known to the medical fraternity. Catarrh being a constitutional disease, requires a constitutional treatment. Hall's Catarrh Cure is taken internally, acting diiectlv upon the blood and mueous services of the system, thereby destroying the foundation of the disease, and giving the patient strength by building up the constitution and assisting nature in doing its work. The proprie! tors have so much faith in its curative ' powers that they ofler one hundred dollars for any case that it fails to cure. Send lor ilSl OX ll'Sl iuiuiuui>. auuiv.^, F. J.

Jn these days of smallpox, berri-herri, bubotiicphigue and other dread diseases it behooves us all to keep both our minds and bodies clean and our blood at its very minimum of heat. Nothing is so productive of con tagiou as a choleric mind, and a body -sweating with injustices unavenged," whether the same he real or imaginary. In the last issue of his paper, Brother Kowell, fortified by affidavits, and in language that bristles with a fiery hut harmless indignation, attacks Thk Bamberg H krai.i) for having perpetrated "an injustice," by publishing in a recent issue of this paper, the following news paragraph: The Denmark Graded School has l?een closed 011 account of the smallpox scare and the teachers have gone to their homes. Many of the citizens have refugeed to the country with their families^ and everyone shuns the plague spot. Had the town authorities adopted drastic measures at the outset of the epidemic, and piomptly quarantined infested houses and persons, instead of trying to deceive the the people, the disease would have been easily controlled and business would have suffered as little as it has in Bamberg and other up-to-date towns and cities. If there is one thing that The Bamberg Herald prides itself upon it is the reliability of its news, and it has grown to be an axiom among its rapidly increasing circle of readers that "if you see it in The Bamberg Herald, it is so." We never take our news second hand and we investigate and thorough 1\ sift a rumor before giving it publicity. The information upon which the above quoted article was based was thoroughly reliable, and was written in as moderate and conservati\e a tone as possible, because even the truth, mighty and invincible, should not be told at all times, and we are here to build up this country?including the town of Denmark?not to decry it. The information given us by Mr. Hand concerned himself and his family, and there should certainly be no doubt as to what he actually did say, for his remarks were made in the presence of several. Hut we were not thinking particularly of Mr. Hand, nor of what he said, when this article was penned. Others had used similiar language in dis cussing the situation at Denmark, and those particularly objectionable words: "Everyone shuns the plague spot," were used by a gentleman whose character for truth is so preeminent that a dozen affidavits would not effect it in the least. We still contend that the authorities of the town of Denmark were negligent of their duty as guardians of the public health, when the}7 allowed even a remotely possible case of smallpox to be publicly advertised in their town paper, with the atlidavit'of a physician to back it, as not smallpox. We don't do things that way in Bamberg, and this paper prints the news, whet her it concerns a case of smallpox or the devilment of a negro d sperado. Wheu the disease first appeared here this paper immediately published the fact at length, and, although there has been only three cases in the town up to the present time, The Bambekg IIekald has devoted three times more space to the smallpox situation " > ? ^ -*i. i? .i,\. II) .Damoeig uiau il into lu me me ease in Denmark, and that town has had more than twice as many cases. This paper has no fear and it shows 110 favor. It gives credit where credit is due, and is as glad to see and chronicle an evidence of advancement and material progress in Denmark as it is similar matters of news happening in Bamberg. Our parting advice to Brother Rowel 1 is to print the news and keep cool. SPAIN'S GREATEST NEED. Mr.. R. P. Olivia, of Barcelona, Spam,spends his winters at Aik.n, S. 0.
