P USEY S HE VELA TIQX.
J. C. Pusey pleaded guilty of defrauding
tho state-out of largo sums of money as
Warden Jones's chief clerk at the peni
tentiary. Judge Crozier, of the Leaven
worth county district couit, gave him
eight years in the penitentiary. Just fol
lowing his sentence, on Friday of last
week, Pnsoy unbosomed himself to a
Leavenworth Times reporter. This now
prieon convict declares that Warden
Jones and Governor Glick wore at the
bottom of tho conspiracy to swindle the
stato. Coal in large quantities, Pusey al
leges, was shipped to Atchison for the
use of Governor Glick and a son-in-law of
his, and Warden Jones, the same authority
relates, connived at this and other swin
dles to the oxtent of seeing that tho stato
was cheated out ofher dues in the premi
ses. Each interested citizens of Kansas
must, of course, bo liis own judge as to
the estimate which should be placed on
Pusey's statements. Outside of this con
sideration, however, is the fact that tho
political Democratic enemies of Glick and
Jones are at work magnifying the merits
of Pusey's charges. These men aie warm
on tho trail to defeat the confirmation of
Jones's appointment as IT. S. marshal for
Kansas. Thej' may succeed.

Then Hyde came in, and- gave Raiiff a
nearly-killing beating. Rauff was un
happy yet. He sued Hyde. The cqse
was tried at Phillipsburg. Hyde was
fined 5 cents and costs, amounting to
twelve dollars. On Hyde's complaint,
Rauff was fined ten dollars and costs,
amounting to thirty dollars.

There are plenty of other papers

Piiop. Borin's Eye up at Oberliu
is trying to make it up with the G. A. R.

fault with some of them for leading at

citizens to take an equal part. To use a
vulgarism, the old soldiers did n. t tum

W. K. Young has shown the Be

thus giving it a superabundance of hams.

The Ellis county fair, which came
off at Hays City, was something of a suc
cess, wo judge from the lengthy report
which ap'pears in the" Ger. Am. Advocate.
Tho managers, however, were few in num
ber. They labored under the same ban
which generally accompanies enterprises
of this character in a sparsely-settled re
gion. Tho people did not rally to their
assistance. Outside ihe display in ;fine
arts and fancy work" and farm and gar
den products, but little can be said of the
success of tho enterprise. To be sure,
there were a few dairy and horticultural
exhibits, a bunch or two of sheep and a
hog or two, perhaps three. Those, we do
not claim, were all of that fair. We do
claim that they came entirely too near be
ing so. The few energetic men who in
stituted that fair should bo given the
proper degree of encouragement.
C. C. Woods, who has been nomi
nated by the Republicans of the Stockton
district, in Rooks county, is a banker at
that place, possesses business ability of a
very high order, and should, in our judg
ment, be elected triumphantly. There is
not a spark of senso in electing to the
office of county commissioner, men who
are lacking in the first essentials of busi
ness senso. It is, in many respects, the
most important position known to the
laws of Kansas. Mr. Woods is known
largely away from home. In the spring
of 188-i he was ono of the Kansas dele
gates to the national. Republican conven
Col. Prouty, of the Dodge City
Cazvloy, like Col. Caldwell, of the Boloit

we should, indeed, judge so. But, as the
saying goes, we 11 oo switcliecl it it isn t
hard to toll how Prouty has sat down so
quietly on his own teaching and his va
rious schemes looking to the eternal
ranging of these western plains by the
cattle. He is as quiet now as a clam, and
we expect to seo him, by next spring, a
regular agricultural boomer.
This, from the Russell Record,
is just about as flattering as any of the

produces fatty degeneration, mental stu

dangerous class of ruffians in our large
cities are beer drinkers.
