The volunteer fire department baa
done the city splendid service in the
past, but that ia no argument against
improving the service. With an im
proved department the fire this week
could have been confined to the small
building where it started, and the owners
of adjoining property saved from loss
As a result of the failure on the city's
part to provide an up-to-date depart
ment, one property holder will have to
pay out $300 or 1400 on repairs.
In the laBt few years an improved fire
system would have saved Maysville prop
erty owners thousands of dollars.
Senator McCreary Said to He Slated For
National Committeeman to Suc
ceed Woodson.
Louisville, Ky., November!). Senator
James B. McCreary, for member of the
Democratic National Committee in place
of Urey Woodson, a Bryan adherent;
Henry Watterson and C. P. Breckin
ridge, as delegates to the National conven
tion from the State-at-large, and aeveral
other former Gold Democrats as mem
bers of the district delegation, is an
nounced here as the plan of the con
servatives in control of the party in this
State, which they lost when the State
went over to Bryan in 1890.
According to W. Q. Adams, of Owens
boro, the Kentucky delegation will put
Watterson forward for Chairman of the
National convention, and it ia believed
the entire delegation will be favorable to
Gorman for President. While Watter
son is friendly to Gorman and has kept
him prominently before the public, it is
believed that Watterson would prefer to
be Chairman of the Resolutions Com
mittee and write the platform. His
ambition in this respect is said to be
greater than to be Chairman.
Watterson believes the platform is of
the greatest importance, and that a safe
man nominated on a sound platform
cou d be elected. Watterson and Breck
inridge left the party on the silver issue.
Watterson came back in 1(J00. Breckin
ridge came back this year. Senator Mc
Creary, though n Gold Democrat, bowed
to the will of the majority and kept in
line. General Buckner, who supported
the Republican State ticket in the last
campaign, says he is still a Democrat,
and will return to the party as Boon as
it takes up sound doctrines.

Developments in the Scandals Connected
With Schwab'? Shlpbnildlng Trust
Characterized as Appalling.
Louisville Fost.I
The developments in the scandals in
connection with Chaa. M. Schwab's ship
building trust are appalling, showing
clearly that the Wall street vultures were
preparing to feast bountifully on the re
mains of the unwary whom they could
inveigle into their clutches.
The history of the rise and fall of the
United States Shipbuilding Company is
fresh in the minds of readers of the
daily papera. LeRoy Dresser conceived
the idea of consolidating a number of
shipbuilding firms in one giant company.
Options and plants were secured on all
j sive the Bethlehem Steel Company, To
secure this negotiations were opened
with Chas. M. Schwab, reputed owner
of the Bethlehem plant. For this con
cern, capitalized at $15,000,000, with a
bonded debt of $8,000,000, Schwab was
given $10,000,000 in first mortgage bonds
and $20,000,000 in stock.
The shipbuilding trust waa capitalized
aa follows:
Capital stock $15,000,000
Bond issue 21,500,000
Treasury bonds- 1,600,000
Underlying bonds 3,851,000
Total $79,851,000
The companies absorbed by the United
States Shipbuilding Company, with capi
tal stock assets, were:
Eastern Shipbuilding Company $ 500,000
Bath Iron Works 100.000
Hyde-Windlass Company 100,000
Crescent Shipyards Company 1,200,000
Samuel L. Moore fc Bro. Co 300,000
Harlan-Holllngsworth Company. 1,000,000
Union Iron Works 1,30G,000
Bethlehem Steel Company 15,000,000
Bethlehem Steel Company bonds 8,851,000
Total $20357,000
The capital of absorbed companies ex
clusive of the Bethlehem Steel Com
pany 4,500,000
Water already in Bethlehem Company. 1-1,400,000
Water in Shipyard Trust exclusive of
Bethlehem Company 0,191,000
Total Water in the Shipbuilding TrusUGI,89 1,000
Thus $04,894,000 of practically worthless
securities was to be foisted on the public,
and J, P. Morgan & Co. and Chas. M.
Schwab were to have their holdings first
marketed at 65 cents for the perferred
and 85 cents for the common stock.
Tho story of the promoting of this gi
gantic swindle is being pumped out of the
promoters day by day in the proceedings
in New York.
It gives a good cause for the declines in
industrials and explains the cause for the
people "staying out of Wall street."
In Pcsthonse and DiedCity of Lexington

as Result of Case.
Lexington Herald J
The case of Otto Batson's administra
tor against the city of Lexington was
given to the jury Tuesday afternoon and
a verdict of $1,800 returned for the plaint
iff. Tho case was an interesting one,
and splendid arguments were made by
Captain O. C. Calhoun for the plaintiff
and Mr. O. W. Miller for the city.
Mr. J. T. Batson, the.fnther of Otto
Batson, sued as his son's administrator
to recover $10,000 for the latter's death
in the smallpox hospital maintained by
the city. It was alleged that the entire
Batson family were taken to the pest
house, all suffering from a mild form of
smallpox, with the exception of Otto,
who was perfectly well and should not
have been forced to go there. It was
further alleged that as a consequence of
his exposure to the disease he contracted
it and died, owing to the negligent treat
ment he received from the city's agents.
