Wltalm Oar Grasp. As stated briefly in the last issue of The Record, the Southern Railway has a full corps of surveyors in Gar rard making a final survey for the new line. They located first at Burgin and ran two lines to the river. Today, Thursday, they will pitch camp at Bryantsville and work in Garrard. Tlie party has orders to run to Lan caster, and then by the most feasable route to Jellico, where their southern lines teiminate. In an interview, the cheif engineer said the connection between Burgin and Jellico was certain to be construct, ed, but just what route it would take he could not say. One thing was cer- tainThe-safcl, and that, was Garbakd WOULD HAVE TO GIVE THE RIGHT OF WAV. When our people think of the many advantages to be derived by all cit izens from this road, we do not believe that any land owner, over which it passes, will want more paythan the actual damage to him. we do not believe we have any citizens in the county who would gouge, especially when the money to pay for land is to be made up among our own people. Not one penny of it will come off the railroad company, as our people give the right of way. The new constitu tion docs not permit our voting a tax for this purpose, consequently the nioney will have to be raised by pri- ate subscription. Many men have signified their intention to contribute liberally, and there will be no trouble in raising the money, provided no one wants exorbitant, unjust and unreas onable prices for his land. As above stated, we do not believe we have any men in Garrard county so narrow-minded as to demand more money than a thing is worth, simply because he be lieves he has the upper hold and can set his own figures. Steps are now be ing taken to ascertain what each prop erty owner will do in the matter, and then work of raising the money will begin. Some people may think this road is bound to come here. In this thought ou are sadly oft. The people of Gar rard once thought they had the Cin cinnati Southern, and were so confi dent that land owners put up exorbi tant figures, the citizens sat flat on their pants and did nothing and the the people of Boyle hustled alittle and got the road. Another case was when the L. & N. was built. The.people of Boyle thought the road was bound to come to Danville and refused to offer any inducements. The result of this was the company ordered its survey ors to run the line just close enough to Danville for the people there to hear the engine whistle, and the road was built to Shelby City. Our people should awaken .to the importance of securing this line of road. It means two routes for freight and passenger travel toCincinnatiand Louisville, beside a direct line to the best coal and timber land in Kentuc ky. Farmers can save enough in freight on their stock, grain, hemp, etc., to more than pay their taxes, to say no thing of the money saved on coal and lumber sent here from the mountains. Now is the time to show your public spiritedness, gentlemen. If you let this opportunity slip by, never say another word about high freight, poor connections or hard times. A meeting of the Commercial Club was held Tuesday night and a commit tee, consisting of Cap t. Herndonand Son. R. .H. Tomlinson, was appoint ed to follow the line of 'survey as it is made, and see the land .owners imme diately to ascertain what they will ask for the right of way. As soon as this is done, the Club will then go to work to raise the money with which pay the damages. If a property owner is unreasonable, the people can take the matter into the courts and let a jury determine the damage, but as the money comes off our home peo ple, webelleve no property owner will be unreasonable in hte ckMaads. Our cltiftepB have takes feoMi of tfte matter In earnest, and are going It M a bsiae6-likeay. ON AT HOME. County Court Monday.

The enterprise still remains a local in stitution with some of our citizens connected with the property interests. It is the intention of the company, to make extensive improvements and fit up the most complete exchange pos sible. The enterprise is one of the best our town has ever had, and justly merits the support it receives. Beath of Wallace Kmbry ElklB. A telegram was, received yesterday by Lancaster relatives announcing the death of Wallace Embry Elkin, which occurred in Louisville Tuesday. He was the son of Garrard Elkin, formerly of this county, who left here several years ago and resided in Louisville. The fami ly is widely connected in this and ad joining counties. Young Elkin was well known in Louisville business cir cles, and was a man of energy and fine business qualifications. The remains were interred at Richmond yesterday afternoon. Waterworks Meeting. A meeting of the City Council was held Friday night to hear expressions from the taxpayers regarding water works. The- feeling was unanimously in favor of putting in a plant, but just how to go about ascertaining cost, was a question which required much discussion. It was finally agreed to advertise for bids, reserving the right to reject any and all propositions. J. C. Thompson and J. E. Stormes were appointed to attend to the matter, and the ad. appears in todays Record and will also be sent to a leading east- rn paper. It has been estimated that forty to fifty fire plugs will bo needed, These, together with the amount of water needed for private consumption will make a plant pay pretty well. It was also decided at this meeting that the town reserve the right to buy the plant in, 5, 10 or 20 years, which is a mighty good idea. The proposition to put in water works is meeting opposition, just as did every other improvement we have made. The electric lights, telephones, and, in fact everything else In the im provement line, was drenched with cold water, but those who hustle have become used to the kicking and it does not now amount to much. It begins to look like the .waterworks are'aa assured fact,11 and the more the people investigate and think over the matter the liaore enttinastlc they be- come, (sepsT Lovely Slippers at Jose; Shoes, Clothing and Summer dress goods greatly reduced for thirty days.

Tuesday night, just before the Com mercial Club met, Prof. Postel and Raymond Ilaselden noticed smoke coming from the City Court room. A hasty investigation showed that a saw dust spit box had become ignited from a cigar stub and had burned a hole in the lloor. Instead of raising an alarm the two gentlemen quietly procured r, couple of buckets of water and drown ed out the flame. Had they been ten minutes later the fire would have beer beyond control, and our city court building, and, in all probability, the Court House would have gone to ash es. A saw dust spit box has often caused fires which were credited to incendiaries and "spontaneous com bustion." Democratic Convention. The Democratic county convention drew a tremendous crowd to town Saturday, but everything passed off harmoniously and pleasantly. The backers of each gubernatorial candi date were at work early in the day and some tall hustling was done. All were confident until noon, when it was wins pereo mat tne uoeoet nd atone men had a card up their sleeve. Chairman Geo. T. Farris called the meeting to order at 2 o'clock and all hands were shown in the selection of permanent chairman, the Goebel and Stone men voting for Mr. Farris. Several rous ing speeches were made, and the Har din men made a strong fight to get in structions for their neighboring coun ty's man but the committee on resolu tions brought in a report recommend ing that the vote be divided equally between Goebel and Stone. The fol lowing delegate s and alternates were appointed: J. A. Doty, T. A. Elkin, J. I.Hamil ton, Geo. T. Farris, Letcher Owsley Thos. Dunn. The alternates are John Burnside, R. E. McRoberts, J. E. Rob inson, John M. Farra, T. Cole Gulley and W. B. Burton. Owsley Hamilton. County Attorney Letcher Owsley and Miss Hallie Hamilton surprised their many friends Saturday evening by driving to Danville and being made man and wife. The couple has been quite devoted for sometime, and while there was a general belief they would marry, yet no one thought they would so completely steal the march. Late in the afternoon they engaged a sur rey and buggy: As pre-arranged, they met Miss Florence Harris, and Messrs Joe B. naselden and Owen Shugars. The party went to Mrs. Kauffman's and got Eld. George Gowen, who ac companied them to Danville and, said the ceremony. The entire party then returned to Lancaster, where the bride's motner served an elegant lunch. Mrs. Owsley is the youngest daughter of Mrs. Hamilton, propri tor of the Hamilton-House. She is young lady of beauty and many good traits. Its needless for us to say any thing of Letcher, as everybody knov s him, and everybody is his friend. He has a bright future before him and we sincerely hope the pathway of the newly wedded pair will be strewn with rocfes. They have taken rooms at the Hamilton House. The bride received a number of nice presents from hr Mother and -brothers, Jin Clay, and Will, V Pretty Madras at Joseph's, A big crowd is expected in town Monday.
