Two Important Cases Disposed
A Short-hand Reporter from Kansas
City Taking the Proceedings in
Court convened vc-tcrday morning at
9 CO; Judge Sluss presided. A considerable
portion ofthe forenoon session wa consum
ed with the hearing of motions. At 1(M) the
case of the state against T. H. Heflcrnon,
i ,l .-;i1, ncciuilt with intent to rob l'et-
erLavcrvon the night of the 7th, was call-
ed. Hie regular uirj ' " "v" ,"V
County Attorney Frank Pale conducted the
case for the state; J. W. C. Jones was as
signed as the prisoner's counsel. Heflernon
is tho onc-anned one-legged man who was
arrested at the cornerof Douglas urcnuo and
Kailroad street on the night of the 7th inst.
The witnesses for the state were Peter Lav
crv, Pat Woods and John Kennedy. Peter
Lavcrv testified that he was drunk and set
ting oh the sidewalk beside the saloon when
the prisoner came up and asked him to treat
hut lio said he had not the money to go
around. He then fat down by Lavery and
soon shoved him over on th sidewalk or
hit him with his crutch when Pat "Woods
came up with u knife and told HcfTron that
if he did not let him alone he would cut him
with tho knife, Thev then walked away and
the prisoner followed them to the fiont of
the saloon. Pat "Woods swore that lie had
seen the pri-oner shove livery over on
the sidewalk, strike luui with his crutch and
slip his hand down into La cry's nocket af
ter his watch and that lie told uavcry to
come away or that fellow would rob iiim
andthnthoalso told the prisoner to keep
way hut ho kept following lliemup mak
ing hostile demonstrations with his crutch.
John Kennedy's testimony was to the same
effect as that of tho two previous witnesses
except that ho did not seen the prisoner in
the act of putting his hand down towards
Laverv'e watch. The prisoner was placed
upon the stand to testify in his own behalf.
Ilis testimony and hi manner of giving it
indicated Unit ho was a hard cae, but, al
thongh ho admitted rtriking and making
threats to knock them all to -mush with his
crutch ; he declared that he had never rob
red and had no intention to rob. Ho did
not create a very good impression and it is
doubtful if it lfclped his cau'o much to put
him on the stand. In his oieniiig argument
to the juiv, Mr. Dale did not fail to call
their attention to tho prisoner's character as
vfdenced by his manner while upon the
stand. Mr. "Jones made a good argument,
ratchini on to ecrv weak point in the evi
dence produced by tin- state. He claimed
that Pat Woods was an interested witness,
and that he gave conflicting evidence inas
much as he had sworn at the preliminary
examination 'hat the prisoner shoved liv
ery over with one hand whilo he went for
his pocket with the other. Mr. Dale made
a vory able closing argument in which la
alluded to the feet that our citvis assuming
metropolitan proportions and is tilling up
with a correspondingly large number of
thieves, thugs and pickpockets, and that al
though tho defendant was a cripple, it was
no reuson why lie should be ontitled to any
sympathy if ho was a pickpocket.
lie dwelt at somo length on hjs
manner on the stand, and said
he had no doubt that the prisoner was a
wharr-rat and that lie pied tho same trade in
St. Louis that ho attempted to carry out
here. Mr. Dale has pioved n several oc
casions dining the present se.sion f court
that dishonest or disreputable persons need
not expect any comfort fioin him. He would
make a very fflicient county attorney if he
could keep politics out of his head while ar
guing a case While he was endearing to
prote to the jury that Pat Wood's evidence
was all right, he said Pat was a good honest
Irishman, not like some other Irishmen he
knew that were ready to turn over at any
time. Those who were in court took this to
be a bombshell fired ut the reporter of the
Eagle, who was present and who U a regen
erated Irishman who bounced tho old lire
eating partv some time ago. Probably Mr.
Dale will cool ofl'a little after election; if he
does, he will make a "right smart" of an at
torney. After being out about an hour the jury
brought in a verdict of simple iiault, and
the prisoner might have got oil' pretty easy
if he had not begged for a short entenee n
the ground that ho had a suii pending in
the supreme court of Missouri against the
Missouri Pacific railroad. The court caught
on to the idea that if ho was a crook, here
was a chance to get him, so he asked
tho name of his attorney and his address.
He withheld sentence until he should
hear if the prisoner's story is true. If ho
lied to the court it i probable he will have
reason to regret interposing a plea for mercy
as he did.
At the conclusion of this ca-o one that at
tracted marked attention from tho legal fra
ternity wa called. It was the case of Tootle,
llama & Co., of Kansas City, against Mc
Kee & Harr, of Valley Center. The facts in
the case appear to bo about as follow-: Me
KeeA Harrwero merchants doing business
at Valley Centie; they had a tunning ac
count with the plainliifa in this case. Some
time last Mimiuer MeKeo & Hair dissolved
partnership, Barr assuming the liabilities
and continuing the busine-s. At tho time
ofthe dissolution the linn owed the Kansas
Citv house something over S900. It appear
that Mr. Barr iold McKec that ho had paid
off the indebtedness to the Kiina City
house. Mr. Charlton who is a traveling
salesman for Tootle, Hanna & Co., came to
Valley Centre sometime about the first of
September and found that things were not
allright and that Mr. Barr had mortgaged
his goods. Upon learning this Mr. Charl
ton issued an attachment on the i-tnrc. The
present eae is a motion to discharge the at
tachment. Stanley te Wall are the counsel

A viit was recently paid to Ask's hall in
the Temple block, to loam something of tho

DAVID FOX AND HIS SHEEP.
Mr. David Fox, the fine wool breeder,
who has given Sedgwick county not only a
state reputation, but whose success is known
to the prominent wool growers of Vermont,
Pennsylvania, Ohio and Michigan, and who
is the owner of "Iord Wool," who has
beaten the record of Spanish and American
merino for fleeces and than which no finer
animal can he lound cast or west, is
pjeparing his folds for the winter. He ha
now about seventeen hundred high breds
and upwards of two hundred thoroughbred
at the head of which stands "Lord Wool,"
which animal he bought from a flock of
thoroughbreds down in Vermont when he
was a mere lamb. Ho had traveled in a
buggy and by cars for weeks in search of an
ideal animal.'and when he had selected and
paidfor him he was offercda hundred dollars
advance to let him remain, and then dared
by a prominent wool grower of that state to
name a price. Ho is now reaching his
urimc. He has been co ered with blue rib
oons at state and county fcirs. Two breed
ing owes, with lambs at their i-ides, sheared
one of them twenty-four pounds and four
and a half ounce aiid tho other twenty-four
pounds and live and a half ounces b'oth of
which beats any record yet published or
at least that dm be found, tor cives with
lambs. Mr. Fox, who has had a large expe
rience as an English shepherd and who has
been in most of tho sheep-raising countries
of America, belie es this valley to bo the
finest sheep country in the world, especially
for lino wools. Tho climate and tho cra'ses
6cems wonderfully suited to them, and dis
eases are unknown except such as are
brought in with flocks, more particularly
from Colorado and Mexico.
David Fox turned his attention to sheep
in this county fourteen years ago, and has
been in the business ever incc Previous to
1875 he handled long wools, but since that
time he has given his attention and study to
the Merinos. He has ransacked cverv wool-
growing di-trict of any notoriety in the
United States in search of the highest type
of animals, and no man is a better judge of
the points or excellence m a sheen, iverv
year ho makes a trip, and his superb flock
of to-day is made up of tho choicest ani
mals from all parts ot the country
from Michigan to crmont. Of course with
all the citizens having the interests of Sedg
wick county and the Arkansas valley ut
heart, wo are nroud of Mr. Fox, his flocks

blc: Merino ram "Lord Wool." There were
some fine sheep at the Wichita, Kansas, fair
last week; among them was the Merino ram
"Lord Wool," who is deserving of special
mention. He was bred by Hanks fc Son,
Adison county, Vermont, "and is now owned
by Fox & Copeland, of Wichita, Kansas.
He carried ofl'a number of honors here and
displayed a number of ribbons won el-e-whero"

just been scoured by Capp &, Son, Jackson

In no locality has more attention been

of Wichita, Kan., formerly of the firm of
Fox & Akcw. He is credited by competent
judges with hautig at this time some of tho
choice-t Spanish or American Merino sheep
in America and his display of them at vari
ous fairs, especially at Wichita last week
demonstrates the correctness of their con
clusions. Mr. For, beside handling this
quality of sheep is a prominent breeoer of

best, being a winner of most of the best
prir.es on Berks at tho Arkansas Volley fair.

OUR CINCINNATI AlVLES.
From tho Home ltecoid, of Cincinnati, we
clip the following notice of the apples ex
hibited for this county at Cincinnati:
A fine display of unnsually large and beau
tiful apples froin Sedgwick "coumy, Kansa,
attracted considerable attention at the expo
sition. They were exhibited as a specimen
ofthe natural wealth of Sedgwick county,
by Mr. AV. K. Moser. Mr. Moser, before iv
turning to his home in Wichita, Kansas,
kindly placed this fruit in the hand of the
expo-'ition commissioners, to be sold for the
benefit of The Children's Home. At tho
close ofthe exposition, accordingly, a com
mittee, consisting of Mr. lxc H. Brooks, J.
B. Wilson and .la. II. Allison, was appoint
ed to attend to the matter. The fruit was
accordingly removed to the chamber of
commerce where it was sold at auction, the
first lot bringing n dollar it-piece. From the
beginning mankind seem to have been will
ing to pay u hoary price for apples, and, in
so good a cause as the present one, the mer
chants did not hesitate to pay liberally for
the luxury. The history of tlie apple did
not, howcvci, end here! Mr. It. A. Dyking,
having purcha-ed a large share of the fruit,
sent it home. Mis Irene Dvkins, hearing
their history, decided to send the apple to
The Home,so that the little folks might, by
jwrsonal experience, 'earn to appreciate the
value of Sougwick county apples. $39.15 is
certainly a fairly good "price for almo-t a
bushel of apples.
A trip was yesterday morning made to
that part of the city which lies south of the

i-hment to anyone who has not made fre-
quent visits to that locality, or who has not
been in this city long enough to cease to
wonder at the rapid and remarkable growth
and the mammoth extent of the building
that has been done here this year and lat.
One year ago there was not a houso south
of the above named railway. To-dav in

creed v seekers for lands and homes.
Terry's addition was the lat to wheel into
line, but when the word, go! was given,
these lots were checked offlike hot cakes on
abill-of-fare, until the books show that as
high as forty lots were sold in one day, and
that two hundred have gone into new hands
in the short space of three weeks from the
day the books were opened. This sweeps
away one half of this addition, while a
larger amount of the others have passed
from the hands of the original owners.
The land is cut up into pat to suit pur
chasers, from a twenty-five foot front to ft
are one acre. These last, when the streets
and alleys arc taken out, make eight ordi
nary twenty-five foot lots, and it is a favorite
investment tor speculators to purchase these
acre blocks and cut them up into regulation
uuiiuing lots, and when the time and prices
suit them, they place them upon the market
for sale, and it" is quietly rumored that many
an honest penny lias been timed in this
way within a very short time.
Building is going right along despite the
growing lateness of the season, many foun
dations and houses are under way arid in all
stages of completion. This is observed from
the drive on Lawrence avenue, while en
route to the city on the same thoroughfare
there is noted near the First ward school
building three new frames going up. Surely

special train in charge of General Williams,
ofLtfajUte. John II. New and a number
of Indiana speakers weioaloon the train.
The plan ofthe day was to drop one speaker
at each place where the train was stopped,
so a to have an orator address the crowd
after Mr. Blaine had gone. At Elkhart, the
first stop, there was a crowd of 8,000 peo
ple. 3lr. Blaine left the train and ascended
a stand. Tnere he addressed his remarks
entirely to the tariff issue. Ho said there the
Democratic party surrendered its authority.
Indiana was verv important in tho list of
the states, but last year its industrial pro
ducts reached the enormous sum of S150,
000.000. He wanted to a-k any fair or can

been reached without a protective tarifl.

New and Hon. W. JIcKinley, of !iio, was
driven up Calhoun street to a point opposite
Library mill. Tnc great body of the crowd
followed him, and here, standing on the
driver's sect, he made his speach. as follows:
Citizens of Indiana The October elec
tions in Ohio and West Virginia have put a
new phase on the national contest, or rather,
they have reproduced the old phase. The
Democratic party has of old. and consider
now, that they lfae the South solid. Again
they believe that they will
surely get 153 electoral votes Trom tho six
teen Southern states, and then they expect,
or they hope, or they dream
that they may secure New York-, and
Indiana. It is a dream, and that with New
York and Indiana added to the solid south
they will seize the government of the nation.
I don't believe the farmers, the business men,
the manufacturers, the merchants, the me
chanics, and last of all and most of all, I do
not believe that the soldie.-s of Indiana can
be put to thai. I do not believe the man who
added lustre and renown to the name of your
state, through four years of bloody war
can be used to bo called to the administra
tion of the government the men who organ
ized tho great rebellion. In the senatu of
the United States tho Democratic party have
thirty-seven nieiibers of which number
tliii t'y.two come iroin the south. Of their
strength in tlie house of representaties the
mnjo.ity coi.ies froia tlie south nn.l now the
i intention is with the absolutely solid Eoutli
added to the clcitio.al vote of thetwo s'atel
have named to seize the government of the
union. That meens a great deal. It means
that as the south furnishes thrcc-foi'rths of
tho Democratic siiengih it will be given the
i lead and control of the nation in tho event
of a democratic triumph. It mci'iis
that the great financial and
industrial system of tho country shall be
placed under tho direction of the south.
That our currciey, our hanks, our tin iff-,
our internal revenue laws, in short, that our
whole system upon which the business of
the country depends shall be placed under
tlie control of that section. It means that
the constitutional amendments to which
they are so bitteily opposed, shall be
enforced only so far as they may believe
in them. That the national "ciedit as guai
antecd in tho fourteenth amendment, that
the payment of pensio.is to the soldiers of
the Lnion as guaranteed in th same
amendment 'half be under their control,
and what that control might be can be
measured by tho bittcrnc-s with which those
amendments weie resisted by tho Democrats
ofthe south. Theie is not one measure of
banking, of tariff, of finance, of public credit,
of pension, not one line of administration
upon which the go c.uneat is conducted
to-day, to which tlie Democrais of the south
aro not reco-ded as hostile, and to giro
them control would mean a change, the
like of which has not been known in modern
times. It would be as -if the dead Sti'arts
were lecalled to the tbione of England; as
if the Bouibons should be invited
to administer i!ie government of the
French lepublic: as though the
Cloveniiiie Dukes should be calledbaok and
empowered to govern the J,reat kingdom of
Italy. Such a triumph would beV. foai.ul
mi-fortune to the south it-elf. That sec
tion, under the wi-o administration of tho
government of th.i Republican pa -ty, ha
been steadily and rapidly gaining lor the
past ten years in all the electoral and mate
rial prosperity. It has added eno.inously
to its wealth since the e'oo
of the war, and has shaicJ
full in the general advance of the country.
To call that section now to the ndership of
the nation would disturb itf ov n social and
political economy. It would kindle tho
smoldering pas-ion and under the peculiar
leadc-sbip'to which it woi'Id be suojecicd,
it would organiie an admini-tralion of re
sentment, of repre-al, of revenge No
greater misfortune than that could come to
the nation or the south. It would
come as a reaction against the
progress of liberal principles in that sec
tion a progres so i apid that the Republi
cans are w-aging cirnest contcis in those
states who-o interests are niot demonstrably
identified with the ivolioy of pntcct'on
against the baletiil spectacle of : solid
south. I am sure that Indiana will protest,
and on the whole, will conclude
to stand where she has stood
in the past- 1 believe that vou
will stand where you stood i.i the war; that
you will stand for the principles and poli
cies which have made your sta-e bloom and

The latest developments in the railroad

"you will sec tickets selling at So each to

At the chief offices of tho dirTet'eiit road
no information of the slightest value could
be obta'ned, not even would the officials
say whether the announcement was true or

turn of affairs than that of the oil market
to-day has not been seen there for month.
The trade looked for it fiirther decline in
prices and fully expected the opening
would be below 60c. Instead of breaking,
howe w, prices advanced He amid the most
itense excitement. The sudden advance
caught the shorts badly, and two failures
occuired on the petrolmm exchange, the
mo-t important ot these was E. 15. Thomp

in ensh will be about S12.000. D. K.
Fo-ter fitted for 25,000 barrels. His
difference in cash is not large. Tho market
opened Gl", and on heavy buying caused by
the icport that the Standard had called in
all the oil which they had been buying for
two weeks, went immediately to C5". From
this there was a decline of one cent, but pn-ce-i
rallied airaiu under a full raid and jump
ed to 71". The scene following has seldom
been witnessed at the oschange in this city,
llrokeis shouted themselves hoarse and
trampled on each other in the panic en
deavoring either to buy or cover. Crowds
tlocked to the exchange and the lobby was
packed with lamas, a few reaching 71 the
market fell off 08 and closed at 60". The
transactions aio estimated at ten million

A'.b vxy, Y.f Oct. 20. Governor Cleve
land was assaulted this morning in front of
the medical college by Samuel Boone, of
Chemung county, who wis ejected from the
executive chamber last week for creating
disturbance while seeking a pardon.
The assault was made on Eagle street and
Boone tried to strike the governor with his
right hand. The blow was warded off and
Boone repeated the blows several times
without hitting the governor's fare. He
then ran to a pile of cobble stones but be
fore he could get a boulder he was caught
and held by Dr. Geo. A. Houghton, when
the governor deliberately resumed his course
along the street.
Ho went to his office and only casually al
luded to tlie matter to the cferks. Boone
was subsequently aTesled but pleaded not
guilty, auu asked two davs to prepare hU
case. The case was put Jow n for Wednes
day, feoone has been pleading for a pardon
for his brother-in-law, ltyron Fairbanks,
sentenced to two year- in the penitentiary
for shooting into : crowd and wounding a
boy. The goernor had consulted the dis
trict attorney legarding Fairbanks case,
and the latter had opposed a pardon strong
ly, and theie was no ground for executive
Alhaxy, N. Y., Oct. 20. Another ac
count says Boone, who assaulted tho gover
nor, unsuccessfully solicited for his brother-in-law,
who is contined in Auburn prison
for shooting a man in Chemung county a
year ago. Boone met the governor as he
was walking oer !aglo i trett from the exec
utive mansion to tho capitol, about t) o'clock
this ij-oiniiig, and struck at him, at the
same, time "uttering an oath. Governor
Cleveland threw up his arm and warded off
the blow. Several persons near by, who
saw tho affair, ran after the man and cap
tured him. Goternor Cleveland at once
proceeded to the executive chamber. Boone
came here about two weeks ago to press his
application, and the governor then said ho
would take up the papers at I1J3 earliest con
venience and would decide it as soon as
possible. iii impression was me prostcui-
mg officers of the countv were unfavorable
to'u pardon, and if s-o, he' could not grant it,
..! '.!,.., i. -'... ,-.,-i.. ,...(!...;,.
to' modify their statements, as no pardons
UI11C-S till, e.it ui, tiuiu iuiiiii..
were granted in opposition to local authori
ties. Boone, at this, demanded an immediate
answer, yes or no, and said to Cleveland if
the district attorney hud reported
against a pardon ho would slap
bis face, and it not ho would como
back and skip the irovernor'.s face. In
few- days Boone telegraphed the governor
that tho district attorney had saved him a
face slapping by acknowledging that Cleve
land's statement was true. Iist week one
morning lkione and his wife appeared at the
executive chambers and the governor grant
ed them nn audience. The woman wits in n
state of some kind of nervous excitement and
attempted to strike the gocrnor. Ho
caught her by the wrist and said to hen
'My dear woman, you are beside yourself.
Sit down and let us" talk this matter over
rea-ouably."' At that sho threw herself up
on the Hoy rand screamed and ohouted un-
til sho was lemoied fom the building.
Boone and his wife have remained here eter
since, and Boone has followed tho governor
buck and forth lrom his house to the capitol.
He has uttered all manrer of thieats to shoot
Cleveland iiid was regtuded ms a "crank."'
Ilis wife had -ever.il Cu or hysteria, and the
attending physician urged Boone to take her
home, but he" has refu-ed. Boone is in jail
and will be examined as to his sanity Wed
nesday. Auiany, Oct. 20. This evening the ex
citement over the assault on Goernor Cleve
land had largely abated. The condition of
Mrs. Boone, wh'o has been fullering from
hysteria since her interview with the gover
nor a week ago, is not dangerous. The
statement that she was injured by the
governor during tho interview is cntirely
untrue. "When "he told her he could no't
pardon her brother without investigation,
and that the t-.i:e must lake its turn, 'he
llew at him and attempted to scratch his
face. Unseized her by the wrists and said;
"Why, you pKr foolish woman. Why
don't you behave yourself?"
.MrsI Boone was'then led out into an ante
room, when .hc fell on thelhxjr in a lit. ahe
is not injured, sustaining some bruies in
flicted upon her-clf during her struggle.
Fairbanks far whom Boone sought tho par
don, appears also to bo a crank.

from tho warden of Auburn prison, stating
that Fairbanks would be pronounced insane
by medical exiK-rls and transferred to the

on arriving at the snot a few miles from
