Over in Danville the same condition of affairs exist as does in Clark. The county has bought the pikes and the question of voting bonds to pay for them will be voted on there as well as here in November. A part of the pikes bought by the county lies in the town of Danville and Hustonville, and there as here, there is a controversy as to whether the city or county shall keep them up. To such a p--- has this controversy gone that the voters of the city threaten to defeat the bond issue if the city has to keep up these portions. - Winchester Democrat.
