The City Council met in regular ses
ion Monday night. Some matters o
minor importance were transacted and
then the fixing o! ths tax levy for this
year was gone into. It was found
that the total of assessed property had
fallen off about $73,003 from last year's
list and a committee was appointed to
look into the whys and wherefores.
They found that the falling off was
caused by the settlement made by sev
eral guardians, the winding up of some
estates and the distribution among
breign heirs of the money. Property
generally had baen listed at its usual
rate, save the Opera House lot which
was givjn in at $3,003 by Messrs Ow s
ley & Shanks. This lot was listed last
year at $5,000. Ihe running expenses
of the town are the same as has been
.'or several years, passed, but owing to
the falling, off in the assessment and
the fact that the town has put $830 in
to the new Work House, it was acc
essory for the Council to fix the rate
at 50 cents. .As stated above, this raise
i not caused by increased expenses,
but from the falling off In amount of

Col. Louis Landram runs the most
thorougly independent papor that ever
anybody read nonpolitic.il in the true
sence of the term. He is the gallant
son of a noble sire thelatj lamented
and illustrious Gen. W. J. Landram,
who was for many long years the ric-
ognized leader of republicanism in
Kentucky. The Lancaster Record,
however, has opinions of its own, re
gardless of antecedents and rips a re
publican up the back frequently with
as much apparent avidity as the blood
thirsty Indian used to scalp the first
settlers in Kentucky. The Record
states its position as plain as an old
shoe upon all questions of interest to
the public and in the display of wis
dom in its columns there is apparent a
fountain of wit and originality of ex
pression that is really and truly re
freshing. Louis Landram is one of the
best fellows in the world, any way
you take him, and is consequently a
favorite with everybody. Joe Watters

J. Mort Rothwell has a large force
of carpenters at work on the Dripping
Springs proparty and will soon have
the place in tip-top shape. 'Ihe hotel
proper is being entirely overhauled,
covered, new p )rches erected and will
be painted. The rooms will be newly
papered and new furniture placed in
every rom The ball room, stables
and "Governor's Lodge" will all re
ceive attention from the carpenters
and painters. Mr. Rothwell has able
"backing" and will spare no expense
in making the resort first-class in ev
ery respact The road leading to the
Springs from the Crab Orchard pike
will ba leveled and covered with grav
el and will be kept in good condition
the entire slimmer.
Mr. Rothweh's mother, who is con
ceded to Le the best manager of culina
ry matters in Kentucky, will have su
pervision of the hotel and this alone
insures first-class service in both din
ing room and hotel. The opening oi
this resort will furnish Lancasters
peop'.e an opportunity to enjoy an
occasional few day's recreation and
they have the assurance of getting the
best to cat that the market affords
and their patronage will be apprec'
ated. For Better Railroad Service.
Arrangements were made for a meet
ing between some citizans and the L
& N. rail road oliicials at Louisville
this week, but General Managar Met-
calf telegraphed that he was called
away by telegraph and would inform
our folks when it would suit for an
other meeting. Those who will go to
Louisville to urge the change are Hon.
Stone Walker, of Richmond, Col. W
P. Walton, of Stanford, 'squire W. II
Kinnaird, J. E. Stormes, Robt. Kin
naird, CoL J. W. Miller, J. M. Farra
and Louis Landram, of this city. The
change to be asked for is the same as
stated in The Record several timer,
but we give it again. We want the
present train reversed so as to come
down from Richmond in the morning,
making connection with the trains at
Stanford. Then this train will return
to Richmond after the Louisville and
M-iddlesboro passenger trains pass
Stanford, and pass Lancaster(going to
Richmond) about 2 o'clock. The train
now leaving Richmond for Cincinnati
at 6:23 a. m., we want to leave Stan
ford instead, passing Lancaster about
5 o'clock, or later. Thfs is a passen
ger train strictly, and leaves Cincin
nati about 3 p. m , stopping at Rich
mond about 7 o'clock We want this
train instead of stopping at Richmond
to run on to Stanford passing here
about 8 o'clock. This can be easily
done and has many advantages which
the committee will lay before the rail
road officials. Some say the trip will
do no good, but one thing is certain
and that is we will never get any bet
ter facilities unless we hustle for them,
and bring the matter properly before
the rail road company. It is not gen
erally known, but Garrard not only
paid the L & N., b.g money for the
the road running through the county
but but up a big lump to construct the
part running from Richrcond Junction
(Rowland) to the Garrard line. It is

The County Levy.

county levy at fifty cents. Twenty
five of this is for general purposes and
twenty-five tobepaid on the turnpikes.
Onlv twenty-five cents can be leved for

general purpose at the limit, it will
leave a balance at end of each year
which the Court may dispose of as it
sees proper. By applying this sur
plus to payment on bonds the pikes, so
we are informed, can be paid for in
