Decision in the Poker Players' Cases.
Judge Dewey Thursday rendered
judgment in the poker players' cases
tried in the police court. The sentence
was $10 fine and costs, amounting to
$36, against Harry James, who was
tried on two counts. Only one count
was proven, that of permitting playing.
Failing to pay up, James languishes in
jail. All the other prisoners were dis
missed and so acquitted.
The case was a victory for Frank A.
Smalley, the counsel for the defendants.
Mr. Smalley conducted the cases with
admirable judment against almost over
whelming evidence, and yet was able
to win nine of the ten counts and get a
light sentence on the other. Mr.
Smalley is coming to the front rapidly

The department commander calls at
tention to general order No. 7, from
National headquarters, accompanying
this order, in reference to Memorial
day, Wednesday, May 30, 1888'.
For twenty years this day has been
observed by the loyal people of this
country, in a spirit of reverence and
gratitude for the brave men who laid
down their lives in the Nation's cause
it is a uay ot nanowed memories; a
day when a grateful people pay floral
tribute to the Nation's honored dead
and testify their devotion to the princi
ples for which they died.
It should be observed in a loving and
reverent spirit in which all should
unite, keeping in mind the fact that by
uod's mercy and tne Diood ot our
brothers, we are today enloying the
blessing of a re-united country.
To this end your commander recom
mends that each Post attend divine
service in a body on the Sunday pre
ceding Memorial day, as a fitting prep
aration for the solemn duties of that
day. That on Memorial day the com
rades assemble at their respective Post
rooms and march in procession to the
cemeteries, and where practicable, that
the exercises there be conducted in ac
cordance with the form prescribed in
the service book.
The department extends a cordial
invitation to all fraternal and military
organizations and Sabbath schools, as
well as to all loyal men and women of
Kansas, to join us in sacred observ
ance of that day. By command of
