Sedirwick will be raised to a first-
class county this spring, but the fal
lowing from the Wellington J'ras
shows that Sedgwick will not be the
only county with an auditor, assistant
clerk, etc. :
"Sumner county has more than 25,000 in'
habitants. This requires the appointment
of a county auditor, who shall pass upon nil
bills against the county before they are pre
sented to the county commissioners. The
county auditor's salary is 1,000 per jear -bis
bond $50,000. Ho is appointed by the
district court and continued by the board
ot county commissioners, and right here
arises a question or considerable specula
tion. Judge K. S. Torrance is a republican
and will no doubt appoint a republican
The board of county commissioners is dem
ocratic and it is intimated that they will
not confirm a republican. Here is an op
portunity for a pretty little bitch."
A DAMNABLE CRIME.
Mr. Dodd, the president of the
Newark savings bank, loaned $2,881,
582 of the earnings of the depositors
to Fisk & Hatch, professional stock
gamblers, who bet it on stock margins
and lost most of it. When the news
reached the depositors there was a
frightful excitement in Newark. The
New York World describes the scene :
"Weeping women, wringing their hands
and gesticulating wildly, besieged the
doors of the defunct Newark savings in
stitution all day yesterday from dawn until
night, and the wildest excitement prevailed.
"My God J" exclaimed one woman to a
policeman that was keeping back tho
crowd, "Iliato nearly $300 in that bank.
It's all in the world I have. My husband
is sick and wo have lHe children at home
crying for something to eat. Our landlord
has threatened to put us out, and I came to
draw enough monev to pav him and buy
Such stories and such sccues were too
common. Sometimes over one hundred
tear-stained faces were seen, but tears were
nothing. Some strong working men were
there, and tbey sat or stood about in si
lence, their faces stamped in despair, and
others shouted and cursed and were for
storming the building aud draggiug the
robbers out into the street and giving them
to the crowd.
Late in the day many ot the crowd were
induced to go nome, nut
Both theGcncial Conference of the
Methodist Church and the General
Assembly of the Presbyterian Church
had before them last week, resolutions j
condemning the practice of buying
and reading Sunday newspapers.
Mauy speeches in support of thee
resolutions were made in each body.
butwcfind.no reports of remarks on
the other side; aud yet there are
probably few Methodists aud Presby
terians, whether clergymen or laymen,
who do not buy aud read the Sunday
editions of the newspapers. On no
other day of the seven is the demand
for newspapers so great as on Sun
day, and a large part of it comes
from the most intelligent and
most conservative members of the
community. The truth is if the clergy
would but look at this matter as it in
reality is, they would discover that a
Sunday morning paper is the product
of Saturday and Saturday nightV la
bor, and that a Monday morning pa
per is wholly the woik of the Sabbath
The Ncv York Sun, in speaking of
this matter, says that the clergy espec
ially are very careful readers of the
Suudav newspapers, and we doubt if
there was one among the New York
delegates to thee conventions who
was not himself guilty of the practice
he as-isted in condemning. Nor U it ,
at all likely thai the demand for Sun
day newspapers among Methodists
and Presbyterians generally will in
the leas.t diminish because of the pas
sage of the resolution';, which nobody
seems to have dared to oppose
