Hudson, at Camp Dick Robinson, was destroyed by fire. The building contained 200,- 000 pounds of hemp, 500 barrels corn, machinery, hemp seed and other stuff worth, in all, about $15,000, upon which tiiere was insurance amounting to $11,250.

The L. & N. freight agent has agreed to be present, and all shippers of grain, stock or other stuff should be there and talk over rate matters and other questions of importance. The Club's work will benefit our country friends as much as town people, and they should come in and help keep the ball rolling. Surveyor Coming. The chief surveyor of the Southern Railway company will be in Lancaster within the next two weeks to look over the proposed routes. A meeting of the Commercial Club was held Tues day night and committees appointed to make all necessary arrangements for conducting the party over the lines. It is the officer's purpose to as certain, in addition to the route, the resources of each county, amount of stuff shipped, etc. J. M. Farra and A. T. Anderson will probably go the entire distance from Burgin to Mid- dlesboro with the party. They go on horseback, taking a tent, cots, and enough provisions to last three weeks. Clubs in the other counties will have men meet the party at their county lines, and the many advantages to the proposed road will be fully set forth. A special assessment was made on members of the club to defray the ex pense. We dislike to say so, but not pore than twenty-five men have been bearing all the expense of doing this work, and a number of so-called public-spirited (?) fellows have flatly re fused to contribute a cent. W,e pre sume every town is infested by such cattle, however. But the "shortness" of some puts no change on the Club and its undertakings will continue to be poshed to a successful end. THE CITY D.VDS Held an Important Session and Take Steps in iTIuiiy blatters. The regular May meeting of the City Council was called to order by Mayor R. Kinnaird Monday night and each member answered "Here" to roll call. After adopting minutes of last uneting the members buckled down and proceeded as follows: Committee appointed at last meet ing to investigate certain streets in Duncantown, reported that repairs be made on same. It appjaring that the supreme court has decided that holders of stock in banks shall pay tax on same, instead of banks paying it, it was ordered that assessor's books be changed according ly and the assessor was ordered to get lists of holders of such stock from the banks. The question of putting on a night watchman was then acted on, men tion of which appears elsewhere. Capt. Herndon then stated to the Board the probability of the Kentucky G. A. R., meeting in Lancaster, and the clerk was ordered to draft a for mal invitation to the old soldiers. The old eye-sore, the burned corner, was then brought up and the danger ous condition and unsightly appear ance of same commented upon The attorney was directed to look into the matter and see to what extent the owners of the lot could be compelled to improve same. It was moved that they be made to put a dressed board fence ten feet high around it, but some one suggested they be made to fill up the old cellars and sod it, so the matter was referred to the attor ney. It was clearly the Board's inten tion to have all done that can be in the matter. W. McC. Johnston appeared for workhouse-keeper Penge, and stated that as the latter had just completed a residence on Crab Orchard street, and the further fact thathe was kept busy with his livery stable, Mr. Benge would like to turn over the workhouse to any other person the Council may select. The matter was referred to Mr. Higginbotham, who was invested with authority to make full settlement of the case. Property owners on Campbell street (Jocky Row) then appeared and plead ed that they be given some relief from the great nuisance carried on there court days. Other parties also com plained of the Public Square being turned into a stock pen on court days. It was stated to the Council that if the stock was ordered off the streets Mr. Benge would erect regular stock pens on his lots near the depot and run them like it is done in all other towns. The attorney was directed to draw such an ordinance. In every town in Kentucky they have regular places set apart for cattle sales, and, after the traders become familiar with it, they would much rather have it that way. It is not Only a nuisance, but is decidedly unhealthy to keep four or five hundred cattle penned on the principal streets all day. It is a nuisance and should be remedied by all means. As to Jockey Row, prop erty owners there state that their rent is decreased from one-third to one- half by reason of the drunken, swear ing crowd of hoodlums that gathers on that street. The "Jockeys" don't seem to care what kind of language they use before the houses, and their conduct is a disgrace to civilization. The plan proposed is to have the stock pens and "Jockey" at the place desig nated and then no property owner will be imposed upon. Mr. Moritz, representing a St. Louis company, then made his application for a franchise on a waterworks s's tem and a committee composed of Messrs. Stormes, Higginbotham and Robinson was appointed to consider the matter and report at a called meet ing. You Should Attend. Everybody should attend the con test in elocution at the Graded School Chapel tomorrow, Friday, night at :30. The small fee of 10 and 15 cents will be charged, and is to go toward defraying expenses of the pupils who will take part in the Blue Grass Gra ded School Tournament at Somerset. Our school will send good representa tives and we are satisfied the Lancas ter entries will make themselves known when the prizes are awarded. Encourage the young folks by attend ing the contest, and show them by your presence that you are interested in their work. Graded School Election. As stated in last issue, an election will be held at the Graded School building Saturday afternoon to select two trustees. The terms of Messrs. B. F. Hudson and Lewis Y. Leavell have expired, and the patrons of the school are exceedingly anxious that they be re-elected. Two men better qualified for the places cannot be found. They understand the work ings of the school, take pride in it,and give much time to its interests. The sohool was never in better condition every way, and the people should show their appreciation of the Board's work by. giving, a large vote for the re election of these gentlemen. Mlit U':it(!i:iiaii I'ut On. At the Council meeting Monday night, a petition, signed by many tax payers, was presented a-iking the board to appoint .Joe Petty as night watch man. The request called forth many suggestions, among the number being one to dispense with the day man, and put him on night duty. The Council had evidently heard some of the cannonading, as it was clear they wanted to take steps in the matter. It was finally decided to nut Mr. Pet ty on duty at 30 per month. Some people have said it was country Ijo.vs who d.d the shooting in town, but in this they are sadly off. It is done by a lot of long-haired Mama's darlings and town dudes, who lounge about the streets all day and elevate hades at night. Now if Mr. Petty will land some of these hot-house plants behind the bars lie will confer a great favor upon a suffering public. IF THIS IS TISlil", Lancaster Will be Hotter Fixed Th:in Kvor ISeibrc. We have it from a very reliable source that the L. & N. will, on the 15th, put its day passenger trains on tills branch and make the connections at Rowland which The Recokd has been pulling for. The night trains will remain just as they are and the day train will go to Stanford about noon, connecting with trains there, both north and south, and returning shortly after one o'clock. This will give close connection at Rowland both to Cincinnati. Louisville, ICnoxville and Middlcsboro. You can leave ho re at noon and get to either Cincinnati or Louisville for supper and returning leave either city just after breakfast and get home to dinner. This sounds too good to be true, but the report comes from several different sources and fr.mj men in position to know what they are talking about. The track has boon ballasted and repair; d until it is up to the average, and the amount of money spent on it shows the railroad people are preparing for some move. This change would work no inconvenience whatever to people out on the Knoxville branch, as they will make just as good time and the fare will not be increased. The re port says one of the through freL hts will run as a local from Rjwlami to Richmond, and then gy into Cincin nati as a "through." The only part of the rumor we don't like is that it will take Capr. Phil Price, Engineer Lanimers and the clever crew now running here and put them over on the Livingston branch. Wc Want Tlitm. A movement is on foot to get the Kentucky Grand Army of the Repub lic to meet in Lancaster next vear and fe. Special Dress Goods Sale.

The meeting would bring about eight hundred old veterans to town. hid many hundred visitors. This meeting is not one where the cit izens are asked to take care of the vis itors, but the old soldiers come pre pared to pay their way, and each man leaves ten to twenty dollars in the town. The meeting will not be held until 3!ay. 1!X0, and by that time the. hotel and opera house will be in use and can furnish accommodations for both the meetings and lodging. Capt. Herndon will take the invitation to Glasgow this week, and he and Jim Dillon will work like beavers to get the meeting. It will be a big thing for Lancaster, and it is earnestly hoped the old soldiers will see their way clear to accept our invitation. The Railroad. Copies of tin survey? requested by President Spencer are being made and wiil soon in that officers hands. The building of this road has attract ed the attention of all other roads run ning through Kentucky and it looks more like "a go" every day, but the matter of having it "go" through Garrard county is what interests the readers of The Reuokd. As stated in a recent issue, there are several oth er routes beside the one through Gar rard, and railroads, like men, go where they get the best tigurers. Tin: Rec ord wishes to impress upon the people of Garrard the fact that this road means a world of advantages to them, and that if they want it they will have to give the right of way and hustlelike good fellows beside. If we miss it. we are gone up the spout, as no other mail will ever head this way, because this one makes the only point a road would have to pass through here to g't to. Many people along the route have voluntarily olferred the right of way and we are satisfied that many more wii! d. likewise. Take your old Buggy. Phaeton. Road Wagon and Surrey to W. .1.
