Surrounding Towns Editor Messenoeb: The Convention Had Done Nothing of portance Late Yesterday Iin-- $ THE FJSCAL COURT- Close of n Week's Session On Saturday Af- ternoon, The spring term of the County Fiscal Court closed Saturday evening, having been in session five days. The important transactions up to Thursday afternoon were given in the last issue of the Kentuckian. The most important action taken was the adaption of a resolution abolishing the fee syBtom in operating the work house. Under this system the county attorney, county judge, magistrates and other court officers were in the habit of collecting from the county the costs and percentums worked out in the work house. This had greatly increased the work house expenses, in which the city is a partner, and the matter has been creating a good deal of discussion for a year or more. When it came to a vote all the members acquiesced in it, those opposed to the resolution not voting. It is uncertain what the saving to the Afternoon, large delegation of local Repub-can- s went to Madisonville to attend Heaths and sent the following answer: the district convention to nominate a Lafayette, April 11.
