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
It being conceded that the Maine

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

Now xa the time
that every one
should take a
spring tonic to
strengthen th 9
system and pre
pare for the extra
demands of Nature. 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
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
toned up with
