;kverv week by LOUIS ZAHDRAX, Publisher. LANCASTER, KENTUCKY. !OSX WAR, IN ADTAMCX. Six Months. Three " " .$1.00 FiMDAY, July 1, - - 1898 FOlt CONGRESS. McCREARY. Wc are authorized to announce Hon. James B. McCeearv, of Madison county, a candidate for Congress in the Mb Congressional District, subject to the action of the Democratic party. lie publican partisan. Now, it is well enough to fire out office-holders and put in men of the same political faith of an administration, but to select a lot of numb-skull politicians and jive them command over regular army offi cers, who have studied warfare all their lives, is a disgrace to a civilized population. Wc do not believe the president would have done this of his own free will and accord. The ap pointment of these sons-of-fathers, po litical wire-pullers and heelers were made simpl because the executive was under the thumb-nail of a lot of shysters, of the Mark Hannatj'pe. Mr. McKinley is not, the onlj' chief execu tive who has to dance to the fiddle every one elected to office has to pay these debts of "gratitude." THOMPSON We announce J. B.Thompson a candidate for re-nomination by the Dem ocratic party for Representative in Con gress from this the 8th district. The manner in which Roosevelt's Rough Riders ran into a trap at La Quasina, is a fair sample of what may be expected of a lot of over-enthusiastic, green soldiers, commanded by an equally over-enthusiastic and green c mmander. Reports say these men rushed pell-mell toward the enemy without orders, and, more than likely, agaiust orders. The trouble with the volunteers is that each one cherishes, deep down in h:s heart, the hope of bjing a Dewey or a Ilobson, and his fondest dream is to accomplish some thing which will bring his name be fore the people. In his mad desire the average volunteer soldier does not stop to think twicj before going into anything, and there is where the rub comes in. We have been told by offi cers and men of the regular army that the first lessons taught in the service are those of taking care of and pro tecting one's sill. Tae mode of fight ing and peculiarities of the soldiers of every nation of the world is next tak en up. Having thus picked advanta geous ground, and knowing from where to expect the enemy's fire, it is an easy matter to load and shoot. Roosevelt's, and nine out of every ten other volunteer commander's men know absolutely nothing of these fun damental principles and rush in, school-boy like, fist and skull, to wipe the enemy off the earth. Unless these hand-me-down colonels and generals are relegated to the rear, it is only a matter of a very short time until an other butchery of American braves will take place. Tueue is not much stir in Garrard over the race for the democratic nom ination for congress. All of the candidates have warm friends here, but the usual loud talking and bluster attending a political campaign is con spicuous by its absence. U he farmers are busy, the merchant is making his emi-annual settlements and the loaf er too busy talking about the war te devote much time to the race. Each man's friends predict a victory. Our readers know the men, so they can pay their money and take their choice.. If Gov. McCreary wins tho nomina tion at Danville on the 12th, he will owe much of his success to the faith ful assistance of Mr. W. I Walton, of the Stanford Journal. It is a hard matter to choose between friends of the same household, but the Journal has stood flat-footed for the Madison man from the beginning. When Mr. n aiton docs take a notion to sing a man's praises, he certainly can do so to a queen's taste. If the American soldiers will not get too enthusiastic when they wade into the Dons, it will be well. Each man has been itching for a shot at the treacherous devils for so long, we wouldn't be surprised if they took too many chances when the opportunity for a fight presents. A cool head is worth more at all times than any thing else, and especially so while en gaged in combat. The L. & X. R. R. has decided to in crease the salaries and wages of all officers and employes on July 1st.. This goes to show what can be accomplish ed between capital and labor when the good-for-nothing "agitator" is ignor ed by the men. Had they gone on a strike and refused to accept the cut, many of them would have been with out work eyer since. In 1S93, the times were fearfully hard and the L. & N. was compelled to reduce expen ses. Ihe salaries and wages of all who were receiving 54,000 per year and over were reduced 23 per cent, and those receiving less than $4,000 were reduced 10 per cent On July 1st, (to day) one-half of this cut will be res- tored. That is, those whose salary is Si, 000 and over will be increased 10 per cent, and those under 4,000 will be increased 5 par cent It is said that on January 1, 1S99, an additional increase of 10 and 5 per cent will be made. The L. & X. can always be counted upon to do the right thing, and the employes will lose nothing by having stood by the road in the hour of its trouble. The Kentucky editors meet in Cin cinnati today to shake hands, console one another over their ups and downs, eat big stick candy and watch the ele phant The outside world has not the most remote conception of the trials through which a country editor passes. He has been very appropriately dub bed the 'Moor-mat for the communv ty." It takes every cent lie can rake and scrape to meet expenses, he walks fifty miles a day to collect, probably, thirty-five cents, and racks his tired brain all night studying up nice things to say about people who do not appre ciate them enough to even thank the poor quill driver. And yet, if he seeks a few day's rest, some gas-bag says the editor is getting rich and reckless and ought to stay at home and attend to his business. As far as the editdr of Tjie Record is individuaUy concerned. he proposes to lose no sleep over what space-occupiers think, and will contin ue going about in an humble way at venuing siriciiy io me wants oi our readers and letting the tongues wag as they may. IiiMAOiXE the feelings of an army officer, who has devoted his whole life to studying the manner and mode of fighting of the different nations, and given his undivided time to figuring out military maneuvers, imagine his feelings when his first opportunity for fighting presents itself and he is dcred out under a green, inexperienc ed politician. It must be about the most humiliating feeling on earth. Army officers understand their busi ncss, as it has been their life work. If you, dear reader, were an experi enced mechanic and were working on a job, how would you like for a street loafer to be taken up and placed over you? This is the same way the regu- lar army has been treated. Volun tcers are all right in their place, and we praise the patriotism of those who shouldered a musket for the defense of the country, but they should be un der the command of trained and ex perienced officers. We believe Mr. McKinley is an hon est brainy, conscientious man, but the way he has allowed himself to be dictated to and led by the nose in the nation' present trouble is enough to make the flesh crawl on the bitterest The War. The other day a ragged negro was fined ten dollars in the police court for participating in a crap game which had "up" about twenty cents. Young Leiter, at Chicago, attracted the at tention of the whole civilized world by his gambling, and he was not even ar rested. It's awful to be poor. Judging from reports, Lieutenant Colonel Theodore Whatyoumaycallit Roosevelt, has more "courage than discretion. The exercise of a little of the later would have saved many American lives in the engagement in Cuba the other day. Judging by the way in which Uncle Sam's bonds have been gobbled up, the old fellow's credit is still pretty good. Bad management keeps more people in poor circumstances than any other one cause. To be successful one must look ahead and plan ahead so that when a favorable opportunity pre sents itself he is ready to take advan tage of it A little forethought will also save much expense and valuable time. A prudeut and careful man will keep a bottle of Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy in the house, the shiftless fellow will wait until necessity compels it and then ruin his best horse going for a doctor and have a big doctor bill to pay, be sides; one pays out 25 cents, the other is out a hundred dollars and then won ders why his neighbor is getting rich er while he is getting poorer.

I was seriously afflicted with a cough for several years, and last fall had a more severe cough than ever before. I have used many remedies without receiving much relief, and being rec ommended to try a bottle of Cham berlain's Coucrh Remedy, bv a friend who knowing me to be a poor widow, most gratifying results. The first bot de relieved me very much and the sec ond bottle has apsolutely cured me. have not had good health for twenty years- I give this certificate witnout solicitation, simply in appre :ation of the gratitude felt for the cure directed. .Respectfully. MRS. MART A. Beard, Claremore, Ark. For Bale by a. 12. Mcuooeru. im. It is understood that the First Ken tucky Regiment or Louisville Legion will be ordered from Chickamauga im mediately, as orders to that effect have been received. They will go to Tampa and may probably embark with the Porto Rican expedition. The fourth Kentucky Volunteers is being rapidly organized at Lexington As stated in a previous issue of The Record this is to be composed entirely of mountain men. The first company to arrive was from Clinton county The men were marched thirty miles over the mountains to catch a train for Lexington. Information has been received at Kingston, Jamaica, that every road and bypath leading into Santiago has been mined with dynamite V.y Gen. Linares and that an attempt will be made to annihilate the advance lines when the assault on Santiago is begun, By the end of the present week an army of about 11,000 re-on"orccments will have embarked for Santiago One brigade will be sent from Camp Alger, and a division, or three brigades, from Tampa. Maj. uen. IJrooke will pro- eed from Chickamauga to Tampa with 15.000 men as soon as the divis ion of Britr Gen. Snyder leaves. The army to be concentrated at Tampa will leavo for l'orto liifo at tne same time the movement from Santiago begun. As admiral Camara has sailed for the Pacific Ocean to destroy (?) Dewey the Iavy Department is promptly pre paring to make good its threat to send a squadron to the coast of Spain, if the Spanish admiral continues on his way to the Philippines. Orders for the for mation of a squadron for this purpose, commanded by Commodore Watson, were issued as soon as Camara was known to be at Port Said. Under these orders Commodore Watson has sailed from Havana for Santiago on the pro tected cruiser Xewark. There he will form his squadron. Besides the Xew ark as the flagship, the squadron will consist of the first-class battleships Iowa and Oregon, the cruisers Yose mite, Yar.kee and Dixie and the col liers Scandia, Abarenda and Alexan der. Commodore Watson should be at Santiago Thursday and can sail for Spanish waters as soon as he col lects his vessels, all of which are now in the vicinity of Santiago. As stated in last issue, tne bpanish fleet, under admiral Camora, is head iug for Manila. At Port Said they tried to coal, but the American min ister sat up with the authorties and the ships were refused fuel. It is ar nounced that he will proceed through the canal after lying at Port Said for two or three days. The ships are. said to be in a dirty, disorderly con dition. Well, let th m go ahead, for Dewey is awaiting for just such snap as Camara will be for him. The initial fijht of Col. Wocd' Rough Riders and the troopers of the First and Tenth regular cavalry which took place last week will be know in history as the battle of La Quasina. That it did not end in the complete slaughter of the Americans was not due to any miscalculation in the plan of the Spaniards, for as perfect an ambuscade as was ever formed in th brain of an Apache Indian was pre pared, and Lieut Col. Rosseyelt and his men walked squarely into it. Fo an hour and a half they held their ground under a perfect storm of bul lets from the front and sides, and then CoL Wood at the right and Lieut Col Roosevelt at the left led a chargi which turned the tide of battle and sent the enemy flying over the hills toward Santiago. It is now definitely known that sixteen men on the Amer ican side were killed, while sixty were wounded, or are reported to be miss ing. It is impossible to calculate the Spanish losses, but it is known that they were far heavier than those of the Americans, at least as regard actual loss of life. Already thirty seven dead Spanish soldiers have been found and buried, while many others undoubtedly are lying in the thick un derbrush on the side of the gu'.ly and on the slope of the hill, where the main body of the enemy was located The wounded were all removed. The following dispatch sums up th situation nicely: All official Washing ton considers that the real crisis of the war is near and with prospect that the week's work will be the most import ant in history in the pending strife. Santiago is sure to laii at an eariy d ite, and with it must come the de structionor capture of Admiral Cer vera's fleet The result, whether comes this week or next, the officials generally agree, will have an import ant bearing upon the future of the war, both as to duration and plans forcing intervention for peace, Spain may voluntarily sue for peace, There are some who believe in the possibility of early peace. On the oth er hand, the scope of the general war situation may be enlarged. With Ad miral Cervera's fleet disposed of, our fast and formidable battleships and cruisers will be available for format ion into a flying squadron for an at tack upon Spain's home ports. Thi in turn, may result in Spain recalling Admiral Camara's fleet, now headed for the Philippines, for the protection of her own coasts. .So, any way you loot at it, many important contingen cies hinge on the development at Santiago within the next few days.
