Our trosb e with Spain now seemes
to be nearin? an end. The treaty
between the United States and Spain
was signed at Paris Saturday night.
The fact was officially announced to
the President by Mr. Diy. who also
cabled a full statemeat of the contents
of the eight princ'pal articles of the
treaty. These articies relate to the
relinquishment of sovereignty over
Cuba, the cession o' Guam, Porto Rico
and the Philippines, with detailed sti-
illations as to the evacuation of the
Philippines, and the release of Filipi-
11. s nnd Cubans heli prisoners by Spain
in ?.c'ian:je for Spaniards held by Ajj-
r.i ildo. So far. so good. But we very

lire i o".v beginning The government
of the job lot" he now has on hand-
will be the knottiest problem the old
fellow has ever had to deal with. If
the whole mess could be sold, at a fair
profit, Uncle Sam could then resume
business at the same old stand, have a
lot of worry off his hands and a nice
'wad" in his pocket beside.
A correspondent of the New York
Herald and Courier-Journal, who has
made a careful tour of the islands, is
forcsd to the conclusion that it is im
possible to recognize a native republic
in the Philippines. The rebels arc of
the lowest type and are opposed to
any government 3 he better classes
are disgusted and want the insurgents
driven from the to-.vns, where they
live by pillage. They believe that
American rule can be gradually but
firmly introduced, and that an aimy
of 25,030 men, with mcdern artillery,
could force the disbanding o the rebel
A citv judge at Hopkinsville has
posted "inebriate lists" in all saloons
in that city, and the name of every
fellow who has been fined more than
once for drunkenness, appears there
on. The judge has certainly never
wrestled with king alcohol, or he
would know that whenever a fellow
wants a drink and - has the price, Jfc.e

The people of Louisville have given
a rousing and appropriate' welcome to
the Legion this week. This action
shows the appreciation the opls
have for their soldier boys. Th'.s is
all well, ancf we sincerely hope the
Louisville daily papers will now find
time to publish something beside the,
movements and matters of these troops
For the last two weeks they have prin
ted scarcely anything else, and the ru
ral readers have had a bountiful suffi
ciency, thank you.
The 20 steer case of Nolan d vs. No
land, in Madison, was decided Wed
nesday, in favor of the plaintiff. The
costs together with lawyer's fees ag
gregated over 800. It was the fourth
trial of thi case. This is a fair sample
of the way some people hold on when
they get to "Jawing." As long as they
c n stand off the la vyars and clerk for
fees, the case generally stays in court.
It looks very much like the Jim Crow
car has come to stay. The Appellate
Court has overruled a" petition for re
hearing in the case of the Ohio Valley
railroad vs. Lander. This is the case
in wh'ch a decision was handed down
some weeks ago, upholding the separ
ate coach law. If the "colored niggera"
are given the same accommodations
as white folks, we fail to see why they
should kick. They ought to be glad
to be separated from some cl isses of
