The history of man's efforts to protect

new city In a new country, on the spot
where two political factions were wont to
tneat and settle their differences of opinion
with the knife and pistol, cannot be any
thing but lurid in detail, and the events
that trunHpired during the border warfare
and Boon after the civil strife had ended
have given Kansas City a sensational name
and made it ttie goal for all small readers
of yellow backs in the more eastern states.
In the early forties a bridle path led from
the river south for three miles, to the little
town of Westport, through whoso streets
passed all the northerners who went to the
prairies, and there likewise gathered the
men who sought the territory to get their
escaped blacks and take them back to the
Missouri cotton fields.
DETECT PTE O'HAKE AN'D OFFICER Slt-VEIiS.
Nobody took a thought for the handful
of shanties on the levee near the mouth of
the Kaw, where an occasional boat loaded
a few bales of cotton or leaf tobacco. No
body dreamed of a city with 200,000 people.
But the shanties began to grow in numbers.
Indian traders and hunters settled near tho
two rivers, and bad men from the Missis
sippi and from the central part of the state
drifted there, so that when the war broke
out a town of several thousand inhab
itants stood on the sit of the present city,
and a marshal and two deputies assisted
Judge Lynch fn controlling the unruly
element, which at times broke out in open
revolt. During the war the little town
was made a Federal post and placed under
After pence was declared the refuse of
both armies formed into gangs which ter
rorized the farmers and made the life of
the citizens far from monotonous, for pis
tol practice at passing pedestrians was the
only recreation of the "bad men" who occa
sionally rode into town. The better minded
people felt the need of a more perfect police
force, so in 1SCS Col. Dick Nelson 'anized
a volunteer service. A big be. was
monnted on a hook on the northeast t Tner
of the jail, and on the sign of an outbreak
an alarm was rung, and the members of
the force left their places of business and,
each slipping a CoItsMl into his pocket,
went to the old building. While Col. Nel
son's boys were doing tieir best work a
man appeared in Kansas City who was des
tined to become the terror of all thugs for
years to come.
Thomas M. Speers is under the medium
.height but thick set and muscular. When
he arrived at Kansas City he was not much
over thirty and had the reputation of car
rying two men's nerve in one small body.
He was almost immediately chosen town
marshal and re-elected for a second term.
OLD MAK BROOKS AND BILL LCTVIS.
In the spring of 1374, after a hard strug
gle at the polls, the better class secured
the adoption of a charter and the town be
came organized as a city of the second
class. April 15 the governor appointed a
board nt police commissioners, who at once
organized a metropolitan police force. Mr.
Speers was named as chief and at each an
nual meeting since then has been re-elected.
The first force numbered twenty-foar men
and two detectives, Con O'Hare and James
Con O'Hare is one of the most interest
ing men in the city. During the war he
served as a private the full four years In
the Union army in Missouri. After re
ceiving his honorable discharge he was ap
pointed a police deputy under Marsha
Jeremiah Dowd, and they, with one other
man, comprised the force. For twenty-five
years O'Hare has been in active service.
He is of Irish parentage, and a man of
peculiar insight into character. Like the
chief he is of small stature, but during his
career he has made over 10,000 arrests. Con
was never known to wear an overcoat, but
always carries a heavy one thrown over his
shoulders. He is called the father of the
rjresent frovo. hut. thoturh nownnabla to dn
service requiring great muscular energy,
he is seen every day on the streets wander
lng into all unsavory places and frequently
giving the younger "flies" pointers.
He knows the face of every criminal who
has tver worked in Kansas city. In the
days when bushwhackers infested the
town he had several duels with them, and
though he made several "angela" he never
received serious injury himself.
From the early days Kansas City was the
happy hunting grounds for professional
gamblers. Soon after Chief Qpeers took
charge of the crook catchers he ordered a
general warfare on all the gaming houses,
and detailed John Branham, D. C. Snyder,
Charlie Deltsch and Jack Fisher to make
the raids. On several occasions In the fall
of 1877, assisted by one or two other patrol
men, they have run in two hundred gam
blers of a night. The old jail was often
filled with prisoners, and those the cells
could not accommodate were taken into
the court room and guarded all night by
The old jail held some celebrated and
desperate characters in its day. On a nail
, in the cabinet back of Chief Speers' desk
hangs a big powder and ball pistol, with a
ball lodged in the barrel and a load still in
one of the chambers. A neatly printed
label tells that the weapon was used by
Jesse James at Independence and burst
while in his hands. This cabinet contains
many interesting relics.
There is a splintered ouuara cue witn a
dark red stain and a lock of light brown
hair on its end. It tells of a barroom fight
on "Battle Row" four years ago, when
Billy Sanders brained his companion.
Above it is a bright new but blood stained
ax with which a demented salesman broke
the skull of a friend in Richaws & Con-,
over's hardware store. Over this and to
the right is a brown handled 44-caliber
Colt's, used . by Orth Stein, a newspaper
man, to kill Manager Fredericks, of the
Walnut Street theatre, because of a wo
man quarrel. Stein is now at large.
A black British bulldog is snown whicn

On the evening of June 14, 1837, the men
on watch at the elevated station heard
shots in the eastern part of the city, and al
most immediately a call for the patrol
watjon was rung in. The wagon went east
to Cherry street, and on tho way passed
Officers George Silvers and Steve Register

they met a citizen who told them that the

down so that the shanty could only be
reached In front by a rickety pair of stairs.
It wiis a small frame buildiug, frequented
by women of ill repute. Officer Register
went to the rear to climb up the sloping

Repentance Takes Substantial Form.
No more remarkable case of remorse and
atonement can be instanced at the present
day than that which recently set agog the
little vilhige of Wynkoopville, Lawrence
county. Me. Ten years ago George Ax-
miller's pretty wife rnn away with
a younu lawyer named Samuel Graves,
ana altuough persistent search was
made no trace could be found of the
eloping couple. The other night a
carriage stopped before tho village post-
omce am the occupant asked where Ax-
miller lived. The next morning Axmiiler
found a paekage on his window eill con
taining $5,000 in $100 bills and this note:

Lynch's big cabbngo patch is a planing

summer of 1883 the defendants heaped a
huge pile of shavings behind their mill,
and the wind distributed thorn over his
cabbages. The crop of 1SS3 wa buried out

curred in the school bouse of district No.

name will go down to posterity labeled
with disastrous returns, o- words to the

or the above mentioned du trict bad been
called by the directors to consider the ad
vlsabiiity of having the school bouse
placed upon ground own 3d by the dis
trict, or to be more plai i, to have the
ground on which the school house stands
owned by the district. Owing to the
discussion being with nc limit to par
liamentary or Marquis of Queens
bury rules being unobserved, the fight
was general. Some men became very
much excited, as it were, snd they relied
upon the ground, and when they got, up
one of them bit an obterver of the

by placing his foot where ii. would do the

Deafnais Can't b Cured
by local applications, as they cannot
reach the diseased portion of the ear.
There is only one way to care deafness,
and that is by conslitntional remedies.
Deafness is caused by an inflamed con
dition of mucous lining of the Eustach
ian tnbe. When this tube gets inflamed
yon have a rumbling sound or imperfect
hearing, and when it is entirely closed
deafaess is the result, and unless the in
flammation can be taken oat and this
tube restored to its normal condition,
hearing will be destroyed forever. Nine
cases out of ten are caused by catarrh,
which is nothing but an inflamed condi
tion of the mucous surfaces.
We will give one hundred dollars for
any case of deafaess caused by catarrh
that we cannot cure by taking Hall's
