When the case of W. If. Mltchell.charRi d

was culled for trl il In the erlmln il court
xeMeireluj afternoon, It wns ascertained
tint Mitchell wns not In court. Ills attor
ney. Major II. I. Woolson, Informed JuelRO
offonl that Mitchell was worklnR In tho

In ten minutes, whereupon JuiIrc Wofford
told him to ro and rlI Mltcht.ll. Majoi
Woodson departed In quest of Mitchell .u d
the court was adjourned for ten minutes.
It vv is then 1:40 o'clock. The ten minutes
explicd and neither the defendant nor his
attorney returned. JudRo Wofford held tho
court oilkers nnd the witnesses and panel
from which the Jury was to bo selected
until 4 o'clock nnd then adjoin ned court
for the flax, after mutterlnR that ho would
teach the defendant and his attorney a
lesson that thej would not soon forset.
Major Woodson was one of the ex-Confed-erates
who went to the Union depot to wel
come General John It. Gordon, the dls
tluRUlshed Southern orator. He was ono
ot the most active of K insas Cltj's citizens
In .ur.inRlnK nml carrjlnR out the tecep

ford Is, like General Gordon, a Oeorclnn,
nnd, like that Rentlennn nnd Major Wood
ton, was a brave Confederate olllcer, will
ciuse blm to be lenient in dealing1 with
Major Woodson for his truancy.

He talked of business matters In the
West jesterdav with a Journal reporter
and stated that he ft It ver much encoiir
aRed over the favorable outlook for a pros
perous season, owing to the gient revival
in the mining IndiKtiy and the recent dis
coveries of gold In several new camps.
Mr. Smith is of the opinion that the re
ported heavy deposits of gold found at
Leadvllle and Cripple Creek are the genu
ine metal anil will nan out unite as large
as tho sanguine miners nntlclpite.
"The find of gold will he a great thing
for our state and for the West, and vvlil
make our condition very good ngntn " he
slid: "The complications lir the Old World
may cause a spnsmodlc rise In silver that
will be of v ilue to the miners nnd owners
of silver, but it will have but a limited
effect on the prosperlti of the Renernl peo
ple of the land The only wny to re-establish
th it Rreat piosperity thai we Ought
to have, and that we cm have, is to le
monetlze sllvei and make It a money metal
of the land with a reputable standing as it
once had Silver remonetlzed means pros

"The next era of prosperity thnt comes
to this land is to begin In the West and
move eastward and It will have its founda
