Falmouth KY,. March 2, 1875

Editor Journal


    Our Criminal Court suddenly suspended hostilities on Wednesday noon. The inability of the jury to agree on a verdict in the Digby case was announced about an hour previous to adjournment, and tho valuable service of that body finally dispensed with. The jury stood, seven for acquittal, three for one year and two for two years. Popular sympathy favored the prisoner. His bail was fixed at $5,000, which was readily given, his brother and a neighbor being his bondsmen.  



    Henry Clay Diltz, a prominent citizen of this place, died at 10 o’clock yesterday, of typhoid fever. Mr. Diltz had lately recovered from the disease or sufficiently so to have the marriage ceremony performed between him and a lady to whom he was fondly attached. Shortly after the marriage he escorted his bride to the railroad depot, and on returning was caught in a heavy shower of rain, which produced a relapse of fever, from the effects of which he died. About three years previous to his decease, he quit the practice of law and became a farmer and stock raiser, and in the latter business had marked success. Mr. Diltz was a much respected citizen, and his death is mourned by a large circle of friends.



    In the County Court yesterday, Owen Oldham was granted a tavern license with the privilege to dispense it to the boys by the small, in the fair village of Gardenersville. Don’t let them be owin’ of you, Owen. (N. B. A pun).



    Mr. James Chowning, of Morgan, is the gentleman that is in all probability destined to wear the honor of legislative representation for Pendleton county, in our next General Assembly. There is no better Democrat nor better man in the county than Mr. Chowning. After the primary election last spring, in which he was defeated for the Democratic nomination for Sheriff, he showed his principle and manhood in laboring assiduously for the election, in August, of his successful competitor.

    It is a nice thing to feel that we may be proud of our representation in Congress – both the outgoing and incoming – W. E. Arthur and Thomas L. Jones.                                                                                         CON.
