A Startling Discovery Dug up $3,500 In
On Thursday last a hired hand on
the place of Mr. John Parrish, who
resides between this. city and Silver
Creek, dug up $3,500 in TJ. S. gold
coin, the largest find ever made in
this county. Hon. A. T. Chenault
saj s that many years ago he was on
a jury which tried an old man for
lunacy who resided on tho Parrish
place. It was known that he had
buried a large sum of gold and Mr.
Chenault asked him where it was
concealed. To this the old man replied
: "It is none of your business,'
and he later died and left tho secret
locked in his old breast.
The Diphtheria Scare. Precautions Necessary.
The panic ensuing from the death
of two children in adjoining houses
in the East end on Saturday and Sunday
is condemned by thinking people,
for the reason that those houses
and any others where there is the
suspicion of tne disease have been
quarantined. Also, some of the children
that are fleeing from the city
may have already been exposed,
which might disseminate the disease.
The physicians advise deliberation
and caution by all parents and a
strict compliance with the edict of
tho Mayor and Board of Health, published
elsewhere, and scattered on
5,000 bills. As a precaution let all
households use such disinfectants as
carbolic arid, listcrine, eucalyptol,
etc. ; and chloate of potash as a mouth
wash. Keep cats and dogs out of the
house. Keep the children at home.
Whiskey Men Meel.
The special committee appointed
recently to prepare a plan whereby
the Kentucky distillers might combine,
met at the office of Col. T. II.
Sherley, in Louisville, last Saturday.
There were present Waller Bennett,
John T. Roach, J. AY. Megibben, J.
A. Wathen and W. V. Monarch. No
plan was agreed upon and it was the
general opinion that no combination
would be effected.
To arepoiter one of the distillers
said: "We have agreed among ourselves
upon certain measures whereby
the whisky business in Kentucky
can be made more profitable than it
has been heretofore, but the agreement
is one of technical manage
ment. I do not think the combine
with the spirits trust will be effected,
it looks to me now very much like it
was an effort of the spirits manufacturing
people to get a combine with
the distillers so that they can reap
the advantages given the distillers
by the bottling law. The distillers
have begun to seo through the plan
and they look upon it now with a
great deal more distrust thau they
did at first."
The Athletic Tournament.
The Court House was crowded with
an interested audience on Friday
night upon the occasion of the fourth
annual indoor athletic exhibition by
tho students of Central University.
There was boxing, wrestling, tumb
ling, jumping and parallel bar work,
good music and a monkey show by
Joe Mansfield and a fellow sinner,
Col. Howell. Prof. Frew showed
what a master trainer he is and
brought to mind the great work of
his brother, J. W. Frew, trainer here
four years ago ; though not so large
as tho latter, A. M. Frew is a little
giant, and what is better knows his
business, which could not bo said of
his immediate predecessors. Harry
Blanton's tumbling may be said to
have been the smoothest ever seen
hero by a student; Norton
Mourning's skill as a ii;er, club
swinger, and bar actor was a feature,
whilst the wrestling of Denny and
his previous boxing exhibition rank

jumped 5 feet G, and were warmly applauded.
These were not all that
were good, for the dumb boll and
pyramid exhibitions by tho class, the
boxing of Harry Fnncis, Bissett,
Sanders, Stone, and Norman's wrestling
came in for much applause. The
show- closed with the wonderful
tumbling feats of Kid" Allen, of

Court of Appeals Renders An Important Decision
Concerning Banks.
The Court of Appeals on Tuesday last
decided the bank tax cases, affirming
some and reversing others, deciding that
they were subject to county and municipal
taxation. This overrules the decision
of last June.
The decision of die court affects every
bank in the State. It reverses the previous
decision which held that banls
should be taxed under the Hewitt law,
and subjects all banks to the ad valorem
The facts in the case in brief are that in
1SS5 the Legislature passed what is
known as the Hewitt bill, according to
which the banks wero to pay to the State
75 cents on every $100, and were not to
be subject to any other taxation.
This was accepted by the banks, and a
contract entered into. But in 1S(J3 the
Lsgiblature did away with the Hewitt
law, and passed a bill taxing tho banks
according to the advalorcm s stein without
deducting debts. The banks contested
tliis, and thev were sustained in
their objection by the Court of Appeal,
which held that the Hewitt law should
But a number of banks had been formed
since 1855, when the Hewitt law was
passed, and these were subjected to
tax. They sued, holding that they
should not be taxed on other conditions
than the old banks. These are the cases
thit were decided on Tneday.
The Court of Appeals has been changed
since 1SS3, and the late decision not
only holds that the new banks shall be
taxed on tho advalorem system, but also
reverses the previous decision holding
that the Hewitt law is unconstitutional
and that all banks shall pay an

This statement appeared in the
