A little girl, about four 3rears

He was arrested and taken to Eussell.

endorsement of the proposition, that if

PART OF THE PROGRAM, .
The program for the three days at the
soldiers' re-union at Topeka next week is
completed. We can copy only a small
portion of it. Among the proceedings of
the soldiers of various states on Tncsday,
the first day, are those, which, as a sam
ple, will, perhaps, prove as interesting to
our readers as would any other selections
that we could make:
will meet in the big tent, and be called to
order by Major E. N. Morrill. After ef
fecting a permanent organization, the
following exercises will be had:
1. Music, by the Cowboy band, of

The Iowa soldiers will meet at the

"Dn J. W. Scott, late of Wa-Keeney, but
now of Ness City, has found occasion to
strike an attitude thus early in the new
est place of his adoption. Probate Judge
Barnd refuses to issue him a druggist's
permit to sell liquor. Dr. Scott reaches,
through last week's Times, for the judge's
scalp lock. It appears from the doctor's
communication that the probate judge is
going on the principle that only one
druggist can have from him a permit to
sell liquor at Ness City. The doctor an
tagonizes this policy by declaring it to be
wrong in principle and in opposition to
tho letter of the Prohibitory law.
We have not heard Judge Barnd's ver
sion of the case. On general principle",
however, Dr. Scott's position, as advanced
in his letter in the Time, is, in the field
of logic, bomb proof. Unquestionably,
nothing smaller than a wretchedly-bad
character on the part of the applicant for
a permit can render it legal or in any
sense proper for a probate judge ip re
fuse to accord to a qualified druggist the
privilege to sell liquor. Whenever the
druggist violates the law, it then becomes,
not merely the province, but the sworn
duty, of the probate judge to revoke the
Bowles's old paper pukes.
One of the Mugwumps' big organs is
the Springfield (Mass.) Republican. There
are degrees of Democratic depravity which
even this flightly oracle refuses to en
dorse. In speaking of the pardon of
Mullen, the good Democrat who deprived
a hundred voters in Cincinnati of the
privilege of voting last November by put
ting them in jail with this specific object
in view, the Republican exclaims:
uIt ought to have occurred to the ex
ecutive that interference with the freedom
of suffrage is a crime freely charged to
the Democratic party; and that the rec
ord of the party on that point is not so
clear that it could run any risks in show
ing sympathy for those guilty of such in
terference. It ought to have occurred to
him that any act of his to suspend the due
execution of the law upon those convicted
of such a crime would be viewed as a pe
culiarly representative act. The pardon
of Mullen is the strongest point made
against the administration on the Ohio
Mrs. Nellie Corette has been
appointed postmaster at Grinnell. She
certainly has earned the position by long
residence out there. Mrs. Corette, the
Golden Belt states, was appointed to the
office August 3d; her bond was executed
and forwarded to Washington August 8;
her commission was issued and sent to
her August 14, but this she never re
ceived. On inquiring into the matter at
Washington, and the department learning
that Mrs. Corette had not received her
commission, a duplicate was issued and
forwarded to her in a registered package,
and received as above stated.

groin, the Kenneth Sentinel eays.
Of the Phillips county fair, which
was held last week, the " Herald speaks in
very praiseful tonus. It represents a man

saying: "I have attended many more pre

Ellsworth is putting on airs
On the 11th inst. the proposition to bond
the city to the amount of $-10,000 for the
establishment of water works was carried
by a vote of 18a to 25. Ellsworth is a big
place, and it is growing fast. We see in
it in the near futnre a great business
point. Vim and stick never fail to win.

of a sort of general loafing place as long

From the office of the Beacon at
Lincoln, in this state, we receive the call
of Anna C. Wait and two other ladies for
the second annual convention of the Kan
sas Equal Suffrage Association, to be
held in Salina, Wednesday and Thurs
day, October 28 and 29, 1885. The
WobiiD is ever ready to do all in its
power to cause a large attendance at
meetings of this character. It questions
the correctness of the principle of woman
suffrage; but is ready to abide by a fair
decision of women as to whether they
shall assume the role of voters. It. is
tired of brute force as a factor in politics.
A cultured woman could cast a better bal
lot than an ignorant man.
W. F. Coxant, an inmate of the
Concord, N. H., asylum, was made vio
lently insane, it is believed, by remorse,
because he deserted from the army in the
war. His. doctors recently wrote to Presi
dent Cleveland, asking the man's
discharge, and has just received it." It is
thought the news will save his life.
Stray Clipping.' The case is sad. But
patriotism, common sense and justice
alike condemn any president who would
order that a discharge be issued to any
deserter who did not deserve one at any
time after leaving the service. Conant
would perhaps have received a discharge
as early as Eome time in 1865 if he had
deserved it Desertion from the Union
army was a crime, and the steadfast
soldier should not be spat npon by its
being treated as anything else now, even
if a man who during the war showed not
a vestige of patriotism does occupy the
position of discharge dictator.
-MrW. L. Chambers, editor of

Lyons, also of Stockton. The ceremony
took place two weeks ago last Thursday
evening, at the residence of the bride's
parents. A largo crovd of- the friends of
the bride and groom were in al tendance.
An enjoyable supper followed the mar
riage decree. Presents from many of
their friends were fairly showered on the
happy pair. As an editorial writer, Mr.
Chambers is versatile and forcible. As a
man, we regard him with the highest es
teem. To say, therefore, that we wish
him and Mrs. Chambers esy and plain

The Buffalo Business.
Dodge City Times.
Some of the ranchmen at the great
west are now turning their attention to
the breeding and rearing of tame buffa
loes, the same as they do cattle, and think
it will prove more profitable of the two.
as the robes are now worth $15 to $20
each, and the steaks are good eating,
while the haunch is a great delicacy, and
can probably be sold to gourmands at a
high figure. There is a herd of about
4,000 now kept in what is called the
Neutral Strip. One company is paying
$50 each for buffalo calves. Buffaloes
are much hardier than cattle, and we
should suppose that in consequence of
this, and their being better also to
"rustle" through a severe winter, it may
be easier and cheaper to breed and raise
Going for the Probate Judge.
A case has been commenced in the dis
trict court of Coffey county against C. O.
Biown, probate judge of that county.
One of the duties of the probate judge, as
prescribed by law, is that he shall make
an examination of the county treasurer's
office each quarter. The petition in the
above case alleges that Brown has not
since ho went into office, January 1, 1885,
performed this duty, and that therefore he
phonld forfeit his office, and be ousted and
tor- oved therefrom. It is supposed that
if Brown had examined the treasurer's
office, he could have made the discovery
tha; Mott, the treasuier, was short in his
accounts; and that Mott would have been
prevented from absconding.
