Topckn, .March G.-(Spcclnl.) It was un
derstood by the people of, Kaunas Hint In
the present session ot the legislature the
l'opullsts would cmlo.uor to make u rec
ord for polltlc.il purposes through the sen
ate which that party controlled. It Is po
slhly too early to pass Judgment upon the
woik of tho legislature, hut It will be In
teresting nt this time to briefly review the
party legislation accomplished or attempt
ed. The measures most distinctively Popu
llstlc were those illrected toward the con
trol of corporations, more partlcul irly rnll
ronds. Tho famous 'maximum freight
rate bill" was passed by the senate early
In the session, and was killed by the
house. It was precisely the same bill
parsed by the senate two years ago, only
there were greater reductions In rates In
the measure of this jear. Stripped ot Its
vciblage the bill really provided that the
railroads of Kansas should be turned over
to the state board of rallioad commission
ers to be conducted as In their will might
After this sweeping reduction of railroad
tariffs the Populists turned their attention
to express and telegraph companies and
reduced the tolls about one-half. These
bills weio also killed In the house.
The Populist senate nlso passed n
stringent anti-pass bill which applied u
heavy punishment to any lallroad company
which .should Issue a pass to any person
upon any pretext, except to actual em
ployes. Hut upon the same day the senate
by a party vote adopted another pass bill,
which convicted the llrst measure of the
most barefaced humbuggery. This later
bill compelled railroads to Issue a round
tilp pass to every shipper of a carload of
stock, fruit or vegetables without any
compensation other than the tegular
freight charges. Tins bill was also Killed
by the house.
The senate aIopased a bill reducing
the legal rate nf Interest to per cent
per annum, which was killed by the house.
Next came a bill reducing charges in the
Kansas City stock ards anil another pro
viding for state gialn Inspection.
Next came the resolution for a constitu
tional convention and the bill granting tho
right of suffrage to certain women, both o
which were defeated In the house.
The above brief reeoid comprises all that
the Popul.dcsenatois claim as distinctively
their own and a lew of them even dis
sented to ono or two of the measures
named whe.i the list was submitted to
their Inspection this morning.
in contrast to the measures which tho
Populists present as their own haudlwoik
It may be Interesting to note some of the
llcpubllr.in measures which the Populist
senate killed. Piobably th- most Import
ant was the fee and salary bill passed by
the house which It Is claimed would have
saved the tapueis one-half million dol
Next came the bill reducing tho fees of
the state printer !j per tent. This measure
the Populist senate deliberate evaded and
lefiibcd to call up, though house measures
l)Oth before and after It weie consldeied
anil passed upon,
Xcxt was the lirlgntion measure, though
upon .1 compromise the senate llnallv con
sented to an appropriation of J.'u,000,
Tho Hepubllcans ot the house, however,
refuse to put foiward any measures as ills
tlnctly party ones. They simply claim
that they worked along lines which
seemed to be best for all the people, and
that nothing was put forvvnid by the lie
publicans tor the sake of p.ut bun
comtfe. Hut the people will be more Interested
In what was accomplished in the wa ot
legislation than In partv discussions, and
the following is a hasty but comprehensive

$3,W0 lu gold and currency and, staggering
to the vault he pitched the money In and

one earning the money and the other

partially untied the captured robber nnd
compelled him to set tire to the barn. The
advancing llnmes llnallv foieed him to
come out, but he still refused to surrender
and the crowd of citizens tired a vollev at
him. He fell deud, pierced by tluee bullets.
Two took elTect 111 the head and one In the

It was with the utmost dllllculty that the
angry crowd was prevented from wreaking
vengeance on the lobber that was alive

crowd of several hundred had gathered at
the Jail when the sheriff reached there with
