REPENTING IN SECLUSION.
Judge Keel, the Mayor of Isaac JIoppr all
A good deal of speculation is being in
dulged in with reference tothe whereabouts
of Isaac G. Reed, the man who shot Isaac
Hopper at Wellington Inst Saturday.
Some insist he is here, others say he is at
Windfield, while others still say he
is at Wellington and never has been taken
away from there. There is no necessity
for all this speculation and uncertainty as
he is here in W ichita and in the county
jail. The jail officers denied it all along
that he wjis confined here until yesterday
when a reporter for the Eagle, notwith
standing their vigileuce, found Judue
Reed, met him face to face and had au in
terview with him. When the reporter
called at the sheriff's office to see
Reed the officers then stated
that they new nothing about
him whatever. The EAGLE man con
cluded to agaiu try the jail, and as he was
passing in front of the Market street side
of that institution towards the Elm street
entrance he peeped into the private apart
ments of Jailor Duncan and noticed a plug
hat moving mpidly around at a distant
part of the room, for the windows were
too high above the street for one to see the
owuororthe hat. By standing on the
fence a fairly good view could be had of
the prisoner's face, and there was no room
for doubting that it was the face of Judge
Reed. When the reporter entered the jail
he approached the apartments of Jailor
Duncan, but the colored assistant rapidly
turned the lock, put the key iu his pocket
and insisted that neither Reed nor any
body eke was in the room. The reporter
knew better, but he could not get the col
ored man to open the door. Why the of
ficers of the jail should insist that a man
is not in there when he is, is hard to state,
but they have done it since Sunday and no
doubt would continue to do it longer had
it not been for the discovery made yester
day. Leaving the jail the reporter went
arouud to the Market street side of the
building again, and after repeatedly call
ing Judge Reed by name, he cautiously
crept up towards the window, and, recog
nizing the Eagle man, he made no further
attempt at keeping out of sight. He
seemed glad of the meeting, but he could
not remain still a moment during the con
versation that followed. He paced nerv
ously about the room und was evidently
suffering the most severe pangs of repent
ance. He looked twenty years older than
he did when he was last seeu by tho re
porter, a short time ago. His eyes were
red and swollen, as if he had been crying
bitterly, and he seemed exceedingly nerv
ous. He spoke with a low voice, aud he
presented a decidedly pitiable appearance
when tiie unfortunate subject was brought
up. lie expressed great sorrow, but would
uot go into the details of his crime. "I
will be always glad to meet you person
ally," said he, "but I cannot speak to you
During all this time ho spoke through
the iron bars of the window. At one time
he took one of the bars in his hand, but
ho had uo sooner touched it than he nulled
his hand away from it with as quick a
jerk as if it had been red hot iron. The
touch of the cold irou sent a peculiar
thrill through him and ho moved back
from the window and never came near it
a;ain during tho conversation. He was
exceedingly nervous all the time aud was
the very picture of misery, lc was sad to
contemplate his position and compare it
with what he used to be a few years ago,
when he was always bright, cheerful,
happy aud respected by nearly everybody
in Wellington. A moralist could build
up a spledid lecture on the contrast. The
private appartmeuts of Jailer Duncan are
spacious, airy and provided with a goo.l
bed, and altogether ho may consider him
self lucky in the line of his lodgings.

AT THE END OF HIS ROPE.
A Notorious Southern Kansns Ontlaw to bi
Hnged In New Jlcxlco Next Wees.
Fred Faulkner, who was sentenced by
the jukge of San Migule county New Mex
ico, on Maj' 4, to he hung on Jnns 3, is an
old citizen aud offender iu Southern Kan
Sds and will be remembered by hundreds
of the readers of the EAGLE. It was long
since predicted that Fred would dangle at
the end of a rope some day and the predic
tion has at last the appearauce of
being a good one. Faulkner will be re
membered, especially in Southern Kansas,
as the mau who nearly two years ago
kidnapped a young lady near Oxford. It
was the boldest piece of outlawry ever at
tempted in this section of the country. On
Monday, August 4, 1890, Faulkner, who
for some months previous, had been hang
ing arouud Oxford and that vicinity went
to a livery barn in that town and hired a
horse and buggy. He said he desired to
drive to Cicero aud would be back that
evening. Instead of driviug there, Faulk
ner drove to the farm of a Mr.
McDaniels, three aud oue-balf
miles north of Oxford which was
rented to a man named Buxton. Mr.
Faulkner told a very plausible story. He
said that his wife was sick and- that he
wanted to secure some one to keep in the
house and wait on his wife. Maggie, a
young girl of the family, agreed to go, and
eot in the buggy with Faulkner to accom
pany him home. On Wednesday morning
the girl's parents drove to Oxford to take
her some clothing aud were dumbfounded
to find that neither Faulkner nor their
daughter had been there. Mrs. Faulkner
was there and was really very sick. The
parents of the girl were, of course, greatly
worked up over the matter, and hastened
to town at ouce and placed the matter in
the hands of the county attorney and
Wnen Maggie Buxton got in the buggy
with Faulkner she supposed that he was
taking her to his home as he represented
he would. Instead of that he took a west
ward course, avoiding all towns, and drove
day and night, stoppiug only long enough
to feed the team. Any attempt on the part
of Maggie to cry out was hushed, Faulk
ner threatening to kill her instantly
if she made any outcry. On Satur
day morning they arrived in Grant
county. The little gray team
was almost worn out with hard driving,
and seeiug a house, near by which was a
bunch of ponies, Faulkner told Maggie he
would drive up there and see if he could
not trade for a fresh one. Again cautiou
ingthegirltokeepquiet.be drove up to
the house and Maggie was allowed to go
in while Faulkner drove on to where the
ponies were. As soou as Faulkner was out
of sight Maggie told her story, how she
had been stolen from her home aud was
now a prisoner and usked for protection.
The people were greatly surprised, and
supposing that Faulkner would return for
the girl they made no attempt to capture
him. But the wily villain was not to be
taken that way. When he left Maggie at
that farmhouse he had no ideaof returning.
Ho meant to desert her just as ho did. The
place whero he left her was fifteen miles
south of Ulysses in Grant couuty. The
sheriff was notified aud he instantly tele
graphed Sheriff Morse, who at once went
out, taking charge of the girl, returning
Thursday evening. August 15th, nearly
two weeks after their departure from Ox
ford. While away Sheriff Morse went as
far west as La Junta, Col., and at every
station on the road found officers on the
lookout for Faulkner. The entire country
was flooded with a description of tho
villian, Sheriff Morse having sent out
notices offering a reward of 200 for his
urrest, but they were of no avail.
His record of crime after leaving his
victim iu Grant county continued to
parallel his Sumner couuty career until
brought to a standstill by tho officers of
San Miguel county, New Mexico. He
driffted to Onray, Colo., where he was
mixed into a hor.-$e stealing scrape aud
held by the sheriff as a witness, but being
taken to Pueblo on the insane raket,
managed to get released. Here ho went by
the name of Frank Decker.
At Denver ho went by the name of
Frank Woods, aud was watched very
closely by the police as a daugerous char
acter, though as far as known he had uo
trouble while there. In Colorado he passed
off as a lawyer sometimes and Ht others as
a member of the Salvation Army. His
parents are said to ba respectable people
in Rochester, N. Y.
The crime for which he was convicted
was the murder of a man named Lnnnou,
an ex-union soldier, who came from Brad
ford, Illinois. They had started from
Trinidad, Colorado, together, with Lin
non's team and outfit, to go to Oklahoma.
They stopoed aud made camp near Fol
som, N. M., and tho next day the mutilat
ed remains of Launon weie discovered at
tho camping place, haviug beeu murdered
while peacefully sleeping, while Faulkner
had disappeared with the outfit. The
tracks were still visible however, , and
parties started iu pursuit, followiug the
track until night when at a distance of
over forty miles from the scene of murder,
Falktitr was overtaken aud made prisoner
near Springfield, Colo.
Falkuer is about 32 years of age and is a
villain from tne soles of bis
feet to tho top of his head.
Ho is well educated and is
naturally smart besides. He would have
made a success iu life at any legitimate
busiuess if ho would only give it as much
thought, study and attention as he was
wont to give his cnmiual plans antl
schemes, Mext week he will reach the
goal of all men who prefer walking in the
paths of vice and crime and enjoying their
transient pleasures, to walking in the
paths of righteousuess and honor.
.PEERLESS CYCLB CLUII.
List night was a regulnr meeting of the
Peerless Cycle club. There was much in
terest and enthusiasm in regard to the
coming great erent of July 4th. The track
committee will have a force at work on
the new track at the fair groun Is today,
aud everything is progressing finely for
the greatest Fourth of July celebration
ever held In Kansas. There is already a
good sized membership of the Cycle club,
but an effort will be made this week to
double Its membership It is estimated
that thereare over one hundred and fif type r
sons In this city who are riding wheels and
if for no other reason than the feeling of
patriotism which they have and owe to
our peerless city they should be members
of this club, at least until after the Fourth
and help, by swelling the membership of
the club, to further the interests and help
make the coming a glorious Fourth in

H GnTALfU1? EARTH. Ol
AT THE EMERSON SCHOOL,
Normal commencement exercises were
held yesterday at this school. This de
partment is under Miss Louise Rowe, one
of the traitiing teachers. The program
was as follows: Numbers by Miss Lane
and Miss Kelly. The manner of impart
ing these lessons was highly interesting
and practical. One plan is to hnve two
pupils as salesmen or clerks at a table of
merchandise. The teacher then sends a
pupil with a dollar to purchase one yard
of ribbon, a bunch of pins, and some other
article. The purchaser inquires the price
of each article, by tht-m and returns
with the change. This was done In every
instance correctly, and the little folks
were learning numbers and addition while
playing "keeping store."
Conversational lessons and reading wero
conducted by Mi.-s Barwiso and Miss
Jackson. These ladies showed thorough
ness in their mode of instruction, and the
plan could not well bo improved upon.
Music lessous were given by Miss Jack
son and Miss Kinkel, and the reading of
the notes, and the time measure were well
expressed. This exercise is conducted by
alternate reading and singing the exer
cises. There was not a pupil that could
give correctly the scale names aud the
pitch names of the lessous. Here is a
Gymnastics wero performed utider the
direction of Miss Lino and Miss Kinkel,
aud were very good as to time, drill and
position. Oue interesting test by Miss
Keller, was to take a dish full of colored
papers and containing slips with a verse
either of prose or poetry.and had it passed
to the pupils, each drawing a slip and
reading the same, thus showing their
readiness to read by supplementary exam
ples. The lesson on form by Miss Naftzgcr
was pleasing ami instructive. This was
given by blocks and models in clay and
paper, and the pupils readily described
each shape faces and peculiarities of cou
structiou. It is to be noted that words and manners
are inculcated in all the lessons, and caro
is exercised by the teachers to preseut tuo
good iu sentiment, tho correct in language
aud tne attractive and beautiful in
prose and poetry. Every sentiment
of right, every well impressed truth, every
idea of justice and houesty stamped upou
these young minds will be weapons of
warfare with which to do battlo in after
life against injustice, dishonesty aud ig
uorauce. "The way the twig is bout tho
tree will grow." "When the hour of
death comes, it is not what wehavodone
for ourselves, but what we have done for
others, that we think on most pleasantly."
There wero present at these exercises
Dr. Stevenson, G. E. Campbell, Professor
Youug, Major Powell, Mrs. Mary E.
Rowe, priucip.tl of Normal school. Misses
Eberleiti and Skinner, special teachers, and
many other lady visitors.

A party of meu, who were evidently
