The owners did not say what they proposed doing with the property. They can easily rent store rooms, if they will erect a number o first-class ones. Excellent Speeches, Three candidates for the democratic nomination for congress addressed a large crowd at the Court House Mon day afternoon. They were Gov. Jas. B. McCreary, Hon. John B. Thompson and Hon. G. G. Gilbert Owing to the misunderstanding between Messrs. Mc Creary and Thompson at Danville last Monday, some folks expected the de bate to again lead to trouble, but such was far from the case. Each speaker presented his claims in a gentlemanly and straightforward manner, and the speeches were highly enjoyed by all. We have not space to give a sy nopsis of each speech, but our people are well acquainted with the many crood points of the candidates. The speeches were up to the usual standard of the gentlemm and the friends of each are highly pleased with the ef forts of their man. Unfortunate Killing. Battle Row", the notorious negro settlement adjoining the town, was the scene of a killing late Monday after noon. Porter Warren, a young white man, shot Grant Leavel, colored, with a 44 calibre Smith & Wesson revolver, the shot tearing a great hole through his bjdy and severing the spinal cord. Leavel suffered great agony until 5 o'clock Tuesday morning, when he died. Reports of the trouble differ so wldaly that it is impossible to give any thing like a correct statement of who is to blame or what led up to the kill ing. Warren wa3 lodged in jail, but was allowed a guard Tuesday. The examining trial will be held tomorrow morning. Young Warren lives at Teat- ersville and comes of a highly respect- ea family. The dead man also lived in the country and was comparatively a stranger in town. We understand he was a nephew of Uncle Eph Lcavell, who was one of the most honorable and upright colored men in Garrard county. We print Invitatioas- TO ARMS.
