EVERY WEEK BY Z.OUIS ZAXDRAX, Publisher. LANCASTER, KEXTUCKV. SOKE YFAR, IN ADVANCE $1.00 Six Months. " Tubes " " .25 FRIDAY, March 25, - 1898. FOli COXGRESS. In obedience to tlie requests of Democrats in pverr jmrt of the Kfphlli CoiiKresional DIs triftl mid in accordance with my desire to be of service to the Democratic party and the country, in critical and important times, I an nounce myself a candidate for Congress, sub ject to the action of the Demoaratlc partv. As a loval Democrat. I have always support ed the nominees and platforms of the Demo cratic party anil 1 now tiipport me piaiiorm adopted by the last National Democratic Con vention, held at Chicano. I am sincerely prateful for the cordial sup- nnrt eivn niH liv the Democrats of the Eichht Coucressional District in the past, and I have tried to Aiovr my appreciation of their confi dence and kindness, by unceasing efforts, to boa liUtliliu ana eincicut Keprcscntativc. If honored by the nomination, I believe, I ran witli the aid of mv brother Democrats, re deem the dUtrict, and in the future as In the p ist my bei-t efforts shall be Riven to tue taltb' ful discharge of all duties required of me. jamks b. Mccreary, March 13, lbDS. Richmond, Ky, Tin-: announcement, of Hon. James II- JleCreary, for the democratic nom ination for congress in this district, published ill this issue, is a source of proud satisfaction to his many warm friends in this county. Having1 led the democratic party to victory so oft- ea, he is looked upon, by many, as a p litical necessity a Moses to lead the democrats out of the wilderness into which they were led in 1S9G. His repeated victories have caused him to be named the political Napoleon, and the comparison is gcod,exceptinr the fact that he Ikis never seen a Water loo, and his friends claim that he will not be defeated if nominated this time. His oflicial career, as model Governor and congressman, for sever al terms, has made for him a host of admit ers, who point with pride to his record and claim that he is the only inau that can redeem the Eighth Dis trict to their party, 'ihey claim that his long public service is without just grounds for criticism, that his views and course, on all issues, were always o,i the side of the people and had in view the gjueral welfare, and that his able work against high protective tariff and fatted corporations should be considered by the party, when nominations are in order. How far these claims will go toward securing the nomination remains to be 6-en, as thcro are several other can dMates in the field, who claim recog nition at the hands of the Democratic party. Of course each county will be expected to instruct for its home man, and the candidate who can hold on and control the votes, after others are dropped, will win. Sixce the adjournment of the Legis lature Governor Bradley has vetoed several bills, among them the bill deducting from teachers' salaries for the week when they attend institutes; the bill to give certain sheriffs two years longer to collect taxes, and the b.ll to prohibit contracts from speci fy i lg payment in gold. He has ap proved the postal telegraph bill, the bill to change the time of electing school trustees to October, and the bill giving children, born in slavery, the right to inherit. Only four bills remain to be considered, among them the cigarette bill. Mil. Waltkic Fokicestek, in the In terior Journal, while commenting on the leading Senators, in the last ses fcianofthe Legislature, says: "Senator Farris could get his samples unpacked oftenen and quicker than any man. in the territory, " intending to compare his success as a commercial tourist to his aptitude in the Legislative halL The Senator was certainly a faithful and able worker, and has the distinc tion of passing every bill and resolu tion, which he advocated or offered. SrAix should not be permitted to set a price on. the Maine,, nor to dictate the terms of Cuban independence. Unele Sam should name all the condi tions and if an unequivocal compli ance does not follow war should be declared at once. Spanish, cruelty and treichery is too well known to recog nize her in any way, where dollars and human life are at stake. Toe preparations for war are still Cciag on, and if Spain refuses to put ep for the loss of the Maine, or de clines to give Cula her freedom hos tilities will, and should begin. Altho' the war will not bast but.a short limd it will cost a considerable sum to pre pare for it, but the nation should be properly equipped for defence, war or ng war. It being conceded that the Maine was des:royed b an explosive, frcm the outside, congress and the people are anxious for steps to b3 taken at olc;, and are impatient over the fail ure of the administration to announce its policy and the coarse to be pursu ed. The suspense is more trying than aifaal engagement would 12. The toll-gate raid, in the western part of Boyle county last Saturday night was worse than any that we have had in Garrard countyr and; we regret exceedingly that our neighbor ing county is forced to' submit to such a state of lawlessness. It is thought that Gov. Bradley will veto the cigarette bill.. If he does it will be because it is unconstitutional and cannot be enforced, for the bill is certainly a desirable one, and has in view tbe welfare of the young' men of the country..

Every spring the system is thoroughly over hauled there is a general house cleaning going on within. Tho impurities that havo been accumu lating for a year must be got ten rid of and the system reno vated and prepared for the siego of summer. Unless Nature is as sisted in this task, the strain on the system is too severe, and a breakdown is the result. Some people neglect to supply this as sistance, and as a result they are overcome by an enervating, de pressed feeling, their energies re lax appetite fails, and they are totally disabled for a season. Everybody just now needs a tonic, and Swift's Specific S.S.S.Blood is logically the best tonic on the market. The general health needs building up, hence a tonic is needed that is entirely harmless. S. S. S. is purely vegetable, and is the only blood remedy that is guaranteed to contain no potash, mercury, or other harmful mineral ingredient. It is Nature's remedy, being made from roots and herbs gathered from Nature's great storehouse. It thoroughly cleanses the blood of all impurities, tones up the gen eral health, renews the appetite and imparts new life and vigor to the entire system. Dangerous typhoid fever and other prevalent summer diseases seldom attack a person whose system is thoroughly cleansed and toned up with S. S. S. in the spring. Get S. S. S. and be pre pared.
