If all the evils in the world could
be cured by law as some people seem
to think there would be bur little
need of the many other forces in the
land whose object is to ameliorate the
condition of mankind

of them Show your interest in pub
lic affairs by exercising the privileges
that are yours Tho voter who has
not sufficient interest in the selection
of candidates to assist in the work
has no right to complain at the condi
tion of public concerns
Nobody but W C P Breckinridge
could possibly have made such a race
tinder such circumstances Takiug
everything into consideration the old
man though defeatedmay well feel
parent idiosyncrarics but upon reflec

intelligent people to o crazy hence

Another one of the old congress
men has fallen outside the breast
works Asher G Unrutk was de
feated for rcnomination by Ed Mc
Dermott in the Louisville district
Tuesday The vote according to
first returns is McDermott 8101
Caruth 5CG2 Athcrton 50S8
The latest returns placo Owens
majority over Breckinridge at 350
The committee convenes Saturday to
make the official count and to declare
tho ollicial result Mr Breckinridge
is out in a lengthy article abusing
all the forces that united in compas
sing Ids defeat He is especially
bitter against the public press and
the pulpit his friends arc slow to
concede his defeat but by Saturdry
they will probably be reconciled to
the idea Tho defeated man announ
ces his intention of supporting the
Casoyvillo and Lindell Precincts
Said to Ho Preparing for
Information from Union county is
to the effect that thcro is a chance
for trouble down there Tho eyes
of the county arc now centered on
Capt Thos U Ulackwell who has
been appointed to collect tho tax
due in the Lindell and Cascyville
precincts on the bond Issued by them
to aid tho building of the Providence
and Shawnectown railroad The
history of the bonds has often been
told in tho columns of tho district
prcs3 and needs no repetition here
Capt Blackwell qualified a lew
months ago as collector of tho hated
railroad tax of tho Uaseyvillo and
Lindell precincts in the western part
of Union county This tax was lev
ied 25 years ago for tho building of
tho road that never materialized It
has been tho cause of Union having
no sheriff for many years as no one
would assume its collection Tho
face of the bonds now amount to 25
per cent of tho property of those
precincts Capt Blackwell is getting
ready to begin work by appointing
soma of tho 100 men who are to ac
company him on his collecting tour
Ho is said to havo a strong financial
backing nnd the conjectures as to
his success are mony and divorse
To be forced to pay this lararo
proud of the result Now let us hcacLuuount of money in many instances

A reader desires to know why it is
that so many Crittenden county peo
ple go crazy and why there is so
much disturbance of religious worship
Every Press sajs our friend tells
of some unfortunate being bereft of
reason and sent to tho asylum and of
some other bciug put under bond
being tried or fined for disturbing
religious worship Wo have been at
ttolittlle loss to account for theso ap
nojrs to those most interested
mj cruel It is a distressing con
dition and the pcoplo can hardly
under the circumstances bo blamed
for losing their temper
-The-collection of this tax in many
instances will bo worso than a hard
ship it will amount to an absolute
wfplngout of a number of small
land owners If it could effect only
thoso who voted for tho tax it would
not bo so hard but it operates on all
alike This money must bo paid and
thcro is no hope for a railroad and
for this rcuson tho land owners of
these precincts with tho strength of
right rcfiiso payment or compromiso

Government Oillcer Runs
Amuck A Distillery Ap
For some days a report has been
afloat to tho effect thnt an officer of
the Federal Government found a still
of tho moonshine order at or near the
county poor house Tho reports dilTer
somewhat in detail and it is probable
that the exact situation is not known
at least a persistent eflort to learn all
the facts in the caso has proven incf
fecuUl so far The first report that got
abroad was that tho still had been dis
covered in a cellar under an outhouse
on the county poor house farm that
it was destroyed by the officers and
that Win Goode tho keeper of the
poor house had been nrrested and ta
ken and taken to Louisville This
story lacks confirmation Persons
from that section of the county have
heard something about the still being
destroyed but do not know whether
Goode was arrested or not Others
are confident that an old unused still
had been discovered and destroyed
but while they had not seen Goode
were satisfied he had not been arres
Some months ago an illicit distillery
on a small Fcale was unquestionaby
unearthed in that section of tho coun
ty tho proprietor was an old man
Iroiu Tennessee He had beeu opera
ting but a short time when some boys
so frightened him that it is said he
loaded his apparatus on a wagon for
parts unknown It is stated that the
worm found ntor ncar tho poor house
was the one he had abandoned and
that it had been picked up and carried
to the place where recently found
Tlio Cumberland Presbyterians
WillLrcct a Handsome Brick
In the illustrated edition of the
Press it was stated that the Cum
berland Presbyterians of Marion were
looking forward to the time when
they could worship in a hoiiso more
in keeping with the progressive spirit
of the town than the neat but small
building in which they now hold ser
vices The first step towards the
now house have been taken in the
purchase of the beautiful lot at the
corner of Main and Depot streets
opposite tho residenco of Mr G C
Graj Tho lot is one of the prettiest
in town and is centrally located nnd
the site is in all respects a splendid
oho for a church During the life
of tho lato John Lamb it was his
hope to see a church on that spot
and his heirs in deference to his well
known wishes about tho matter pro
posed to tho church to contribute
500 towards the enterprise if steps
would bo taken at once Tho church
gladly accepted tho conditions and
the lot wns purchased It is too late
in the season to begin building this
year so everything will be gotten in
order for the work next seasoD and
by this time next year a large brick
building will have reared its spire
towards tho sky in that neighborhood
of our fair little city
