"T'liut decision," the tientinel goes

brewers, distillers aud wine-growers,
It is -a terrible ouslought upou liberty

not addicted to the use of iutoxicating

question, lie Voted for looal option,
because be wanted to see tbe saloons

would patronize these institutions, and

would not atlect the sale of liquors by

Tbe old man, relying on the promises

A FOX HUNTER ARRESTED.
A Ms Qullly at Crookedness, li Feno' el Iho
A couple of weeks or more ago, a
man giving the name Cap Shipel, came
to the residence of our old friend Bert.
Endslry, who lives a couple miles cast
of Orrick, and applied for board. He
had with him a boy, two horses, two
mules and nearly a dozen of good fox
hounds. Ho represented himself as a
oattlcman, front southern Kansao, claim
ing that he hod sold out his stork, with
the exception of some young cattle,
and was out to have a littlecnjoynient,
chasing foxes. As several of these
animals have established hcail quarters
in the hill country north and west of
Endley's, he had struck the right place
and was having a royal good time, in
tact too good to last, as on Wednesday
night of last week a deputy sheriff from
Platte county, accompanied by another
one from Jackson county, appeared
and arrested the gentleman on a charge
c! grr.r.4 !-;!. He Is charged toii.li
taking a maro and colt in Jackson
county and perhaps other proporty,
and it Is also said that tho dogs were
stolen from various parties, perhaps
from Platte county. Tbe deputies said
his real name Is Cap Clark, but thry
either did not know the extent of his
criminality, or would not tell it. Mr.
Endsley lost eight or ten days board
of the man and his stock, but consoles
himself that it might have been worse
as he thinks the man would have sold
him tho mules, and then he enjoyed a
number o nioe fox chases anyway.
