would take their advice and act John has many times left home for a trip through the South and without any difficulty make the return trip and talk of the country passed through and sights seen as though he had made the trip in King Edwards observation car When he was talking of his trip to some Illinois town Monday night he talked about the con nections he would make the time he would reach his desti nation and all just as though the trip was to be made in a private car When asked if he had any money he laughed and said Not a red cent have I on earth Well how do you expect to get anything to eat along the line Oh thats easy I have hit the road many times and I never was refused a hand out but three times in my life Oh Illcat and you can bet your life that by day after tomor

relation to the public building at Law renceburg has just been re ceived No bills of this char acterwill be considered by the committee during this short session except casesjnvolving especially urgent circum stances I have been before the committee twice and the members tell me that we have a good case but we must wait until the next session They further advise that it would be improper to press for a re port now because an unfav t orable report might be m- adeVand this would be a serious obstacle to the further prog ress of the bill at the next session The people of Law renceburg ought to give me credit for knowing better how to proceed and when to pro I ceed than they can possibly know at that distance Tell them that I have no other bills for a public building and that I am pursuing that course which will in my judgment best secure the appropriation It would be folly for a delega tion to come up here now and lay the facts and figures before this Congress When next Congress convenes we will have a new committee reor ganized by a new Speaker The Chairman of this Com mittee Mr Mercer has been defeated for reelection and when the long terms begins the work would have to all be done over again and the hearing now had would be of no possi ble avail It is like bringing a suit on the equity docket just before court and clamor Books JGot a cold eh Well stop in and

heard the click click of every other phone along the line cutting in to learn what is to be talk ed about It is nothing un common at all to hear some one of them unthoughtedly exclaim wouldnt that fros- you or isnt that just terri ble or to have one of the suggest that certain steps taken to do so and so then whatever news might phoned to us when learned by these gossipers becomes public property and receives as large a circulation as any two papers in the State could give It would be well for some pea Drugs pie to read well the printed rules given them bythe tele phone company and

sidewalks in front of their the Council has the right to say how the walks shall be constructed and to limit the time in which the work shall be done That when propertyholders fail to construct their walks within the time prescribed the Council has the right to construct them and collect the cost from the owner of the in order to enforce the collection of the cost of walks constructed by the city the law creates a lien on the property improved Have We Been Misinformed If not why is it that on Woodford street one of the most important in the city there are rods of sidewalk so low that it is as muddy as the middle of the street Why is it that people on this street are permitted to dam up the water running off the street and make ponds at the opening of alleys for oth ers to wade through Why is it that no steps have been taken to secure good walks on Woodford and Court are crossings not laid on these streets connecting with the walks so that citi zens may get down town with out running the risk of pneu monia orOagrippe caused by wet feet Why is it that the Southern Railway Co is not forced to build a crossing on Court street that pedestrians can get across their property with out walking through mud shoemouth deep Is it the duty of the city of ficers to look after these thingsIf why not We only wish to know so that the responsibility may be placed where it belongs The

SUPPLEMENTLAWRENCEBURG Like the Ground Hog The Fiscal Court Gets Scared and Runs Back Which Means Many Years More of Bad House At the meeting of the Fiscal Court or rather at a meeting made up of men supposed to represent such a court held here on Tuesday to inspect the plans drawn by Mr Col lins of Louisville for the remodeling of the Courthouse the following important busi ness was transacted NOTHING In fact we are offering a premium of a round trip ticket to the Worlds Fair to the man woman or child who can think of anything that this body has ever done in the past or to call to our atten tion anything that they may do between now and the open ing of the fair which is yet a year or more off According to appointment Mr Collins arrived and presented the plans drawn by him for the repair ing of the house which were somewhat after this style The second floor was to be lowered four feet a balcony placed in the rear of the for colored people a roomI from the second floor jail below and the floor so elevated and arranged as to make it a most model court room The first floor would have six large offices for coun ty officers there being a large hall through the center of the building the stairway to the courtroom to be just at the entrance of the hallway the present doors to be closed and large glass windows put in Y r their places then over the front entrance would be placed a large balcony which could be used for public gatherings speakings c To make these repairs Mr Collins said that it would cost the county 375000 with a probable cost of 25000 for wreckage mak ing a total expense of 400000 After some talk it was decided to pay Mr Collins his charge of 3750 for the drawing up of the plans and that they be filedaway for the present and we might as well add future so long as the present county officers are in office The excuse given was that the roads were in such a condition that is would cost the county so much to repair them that they did not think it advisable to go to the expense of repairing the house Mr Collins then made a proposition to do the work now and wait for the payment of it until April 1905 that all of these ex penses could be paid and that no interest would be charged on the money Even with that kind of a proposition be fore them they voted to do NOTHING The only reason for not having the work done was that the roads were in a most deplorable condition To be sure gentlemen they are and whose fault is it that they are but yours You that are the the sole cause of it all have a lot of right to come a crowing around about the roads when your attention was called to the fact all last fall that the roads should be placed in con dition to save them when bad weather set in Did you do any work on them then and are you doing anything to better them now Not a thing have you done not a thing are you doing and its our opinion that its little you are going to do You say that the weather is too bad to do any work What is the
