Mr. James Hughes is strongly in
favor of waterworks for Richmond,
and no doubt arrangements could be
made to supply the city with water 11
an effort was made. The great losses
by the fire that burned out the west
side of the square could have been
prevented it the city had been in pos
session of waterworks arranged as
they are at Carthage in this state, so
that the pressure could be put on the
pipes. We have seen buildings saved
in the city named that at first sight
seemed doomed. The tax there, if we
recollect aright, is 3U cents on the S10U,
aud every business man saves this In

insurance companies will give lower
rates where tbey know there is an

manufacture it. Glucose serves as an
adulterant iu sugars, candles, preservts

It is sold for honey in some cases, aud
tor sugar lo people who do not dream

fur adulteraliug put poses. Fortuuate
ly ueiiuer glucose, oleomargarine nor

that they are cheap imitations palmed

If the articles mentioned are not
unwholesome, and answer the purpose
tor which they are sold, the statement

James Brothers' drug store at
Thai it whal Iht Jury Said In the Case si Gut
For snuie months past it has been a
question with those who know A. J.
Dressier best, whether he Is of sound
mind mid capable of attending to his
affairs. Recently complaint was made
to Judge Banister in proper form aud
a legal examination into the matter or
dered. Tbo Judge. set Monday lost for a
hearing ot the case and Sheriff Morris
summoned the following jurors: Lewis

derson, A.J. M:Culsllon, WilburSnow-
den, W. A. Craln, lion Jacobs, M. J.
furner, W.W. Sroyer.Mss. James, Hen
ry Hard nnd John Muloney.
G. 1. Wasson testified tl;H Mr. Dress
ier talked wild about trades he had
made, lands he bud bought, houses he
proposed to build, &a, which looked as
if he was a man of unsound mind, but
notice no disposition in him to bairn
himself or any oue elso. Louis Litt
man, Jas. Dawson Jos. Uolden, and A.
J. iiotts test I led to about the same
thing, and also to other matters that
Dr. Garner s.tld ho considered Mr.
Dressier a mau of unsound mind, but
saw no acts of of his to indicate that be
would harm any one. Though be
ought lo be treated for the malady.
Dr. Shotwell did not regard biin of
sound mind, but never noticed any
tendency to damage others. Think in
his present condition he should be re
strained aud receive medical attention.
Dr. Buchanan did not regard hltn of
sound mind, and thought he was liable
to get into a state at any time that
would cause hira to do violence.
Wm. Marshal did not think be was of
sound mind, rnd capable of attending
to bis business affairs, though he can
do as good work as ever. Don't think
he is vicious but needs treatment.
Dr. Mosby bad seen no disposition
ou his part to harm himself or any oue
else. His case might take a honiocldal
tendency or it might not,
Geo. A, Hughes said he managed his
business affairs as usual, and noticed
no dispositlou In hlin lo harm anyone.
After reading the law by prosecuting
attorney Ball and a few remaiks by
'. N. Luvelock for the defendant, the
jury took the case aud decided that he
was not of souud mind, aud conse
quently, not able to take care of his
J udge Banister unpointed J, R. Ham
ilton as his guuidiuu aud he will re
ceive proper attention ut once.
An Important Arrest,
Sheriff Mori is last Saturday after
noon made au arrest winch reflects
great credit upon bis detective skill,
.Some weeks ugo be incidentally be
came possessed of the information that
a man known us Jack Wilson, a section
hand ou the St. J. & St. L. road, was
wauled in 1 remonl county, Iowa, for
a murder commuted nineteen years
ago, Mr. Morris quietly placed him
self in couimuuicatiou with Mr. 8. F.
Jones, the Sheriff of Fremont county,
and as quietly matured his plans for
the capture of Wilson, aud getting
everything in readiness arrested him
at bis homo near the depot in this city.
Sheriff Jones was telegruphed to as
soon as the arrest was made aud ar
rived here Sunday night. Wilson, or
rather Beabout, as that is his proper
uatne, refused to accompany the officer
to Iowa unless a requisition was
shown. This was procured, and the
officer aud Beabout left this morning
Sheriff Jones says the crime for
which Beabout is wanted was one of
the most cold blooded murders ever
committed in Iowa, Beabout was
engineer ou a ferry boat plying be
tween Nebraska City, 'eb, and the
Iowa shore on the Missouri river.
Oue day the captain of tbe boat was
away aud left the boat in charge of
auother mau, Lite iu the afternoon
Beabout refused to make a trip and
told the ollicer iu charge it he ran the
boat over he (UeabouO would kill him
on his returu to shore. The officer
paid no heed to the threat aud ran the
boat over aud back. As be was tieing
the boat up Beabout opened lire on
him, shooting him four times and kill
ing him iusluutly.
Beabout was arrested, lodged In jail
aud Indicted by the grand jury, but
before his case cuiue up hu broke jail
with the help ot outside parties aud
mude ins escape, and hud never been
heard from until Sheriff Morris, thro'
an accidental conversation, heated
him in this city.
After his arrest here ho udinitted
the killing but said it was done in self-
defense, and also said his fileuds were
so confident of bis innocence that they
bad torn down the jail aud liberated
Some weeks ago he was married in

A fact, not generally known, is that
any kind of foreign substance other
than salt, put in butter subjects it to a
government tax of t cents per pound,
under the new law taxing oleomargar
ine, aud lays it liable to seizure by
United States olllccrs if put upon the
market, without being properly stamp
ed. It is a custom with many good
ladies who make butler to sell to color
it by the addition of one thing or an
other, and no doubt they keep this
practice up, not knowing that by so
doing they are violating the law. It
is charged that some ladies, especially
in Kansas, by the judicious use of the
yelks of eggsand hog's lard mixed with
their butter greatly increase Its bulk
and weight, thereby making a good
thing of it. If a United States revenue
ollicer should some day drop onto these
practices and cause trouble, those who
thus palm off the "doctored stuff" will
only have themselves to blame.
