T- WESTERN KAS. WORLD. W. 8. TiLTON, Editor. Satubday, November 14, 1885. Ness county is in possession of a very large anti-bond sentiment as relates to extending this class of aid to one of the railroad enterprises down that way. About 150 of the people have already sent to the commissioners a remonstra ting petition. ANOTHER OlfE. From our good friend, Prof. G. W. Jones, assistant state superintendent of public instruction, we have received the following letter, bearing date, Topeka, November 9: Friend Triton: I received another copy of your paper to-day, and among the many items of news, I see your county treasurer saved the state nearly fifty dollars by sending his quarterly remittance to the state treasurer by money order, and you say, you "wonder if this was ever done before in Kansas." . , I will say, yes. CapL A. W. Burton, treasurer of Linn county, sent his quar terly remittance of nearly $800.00. three weeks ago, by money order, thereby Baving the state abbut'830.00 Everything is very quiet here at present. The Democrats say they have heard from New York. Captain Burton is among the best of Kansas men. We knew him as a warm personal and political friend away back in 1871-2, and it does us good to be able to say, in this connection, that this act comports happily with his general char- fictcr We think it unfortunate that such gentlemen as Mr. Kelly and Oapi Burton have -to be included in the general law limiting the tenure of the office of connty treasurer to two consecutive terms. A low down whelp like the sheriff we used to have here is apt to resign at the last end of his second term, and reach a third term by thus breaking the consecutive ness. A good man never will perpetrate upon decent people a trick of this sort PU RE CURSEDNESS. Fourteen Dollars' Worth of It. The fellow Seaman, who at once pro fesses to be manager of Seaman's show, and at the same time not the owner of a cent's worth of the goods of the outfit, came into the World office Monday morning, and attempted t beat us out of a bill which his advance agent had incurred at this office for job printing and adver tising. The bill amounted to $1.35. Seaman had not talked to us more than in the region of a minute before we arose from our chair and branded him as a liar. He moved out of our office and threatened to shoot. We had "been there" before. He then walked off with a get-your-bill-if-ycn-can air, and we pro ceeded to sue for it. Seaman who, like the dirty deadbeat dog he is, professed, first to have no money; secondly, that he cared nothing for being held as a prisoner. By Wednesday, however, a change had pmifi nvfir the fellow's dreams. An attachment had been run on the property of the outfit. He was cowed. His hired man or partner whichever he may be seemed to be a quiet, ready-to-do-the-right-thing kind or a man; and on that day, through his mediation, the bill and the costs, aggregating fouiteen dollars, in cluding Seaman's board, were-paidby the outfit, and the prosecution was dropped. Wednesday evening, after having sold their team and buggy to E. D. Wheeler, the outfit pulled west in a railroad car. They intend to Bhow out that way. We caution our friends to beware of trusting this Seaman for a cent. He will beat you out of it if he can. Our attorneys in this case, Messrs. Cowick & Hollister, are entitled to our gratitude for the vigilance which they ex ercised in doing their duty. It is only fair to say that, although residents of Kansas for but a short time, they showed themselves familiar with the laws of the state, and willing and competent to take care of their client.

The receiver expresses himself as not knowing what to do in the premises. On the one hand, the general land commissioner is clamoring for re turns, but does not furnish the necessary help to permit them to be made out with any promptness. On the other hand, the land seekers complain bitterly of being kept in suspense for days or weeks before their cases can be acted upon. In fact, the condition at the office of the Western Kansas government land district is a clear case of too much business. While on the way to "Wa-Keeney, and in passing through a ravine about ten miles south of there, Mr. Fred Both and M. G. Beltzhoover were thrown from the buggy, the latter named gentleman break ing his collar bone in the fall. He was taken to the Union House, where he is receiving medical treatment.

Tou are referred to his land-office advertisement in this Wobu. The Hughes Bros, seem to have de serted Wa-Keeney for the sake of engaging in the land business at Wallace. Kiltie Wilson, the bone rattler and general fun maker, is back again. Billie expresses his intention of staying una time. , County Treasurer Kelly reports tax- paying under rapid headway. Non-resi dents are sending in their taxes witn commendable vigor. - The train that went east yesterday morning took Mr. W. S. Johns along. He has gone to Perry, HL, to remain during the rest of the present year. Lee Monroe is having him a'residence built, which will have absorbed just about a thousand dollars by the time it is finished. Carpenter Sigler has the con tract. Our former fellow-citizen, P. L. Cobb, is running a full-fledged furniture store at Edmond, Norton county. The World has done a lot of job printing for him this week. Leonard Schmitt is having a bored well injected into his residence ground. He says if the borers strike blue shale in his place, they can bore through it, and see what lies below. The Headlight remarks that the mas querade skate at the rink in Ellis, Tues day evening of last week, was quite an enjoyable affair, and was well attended by Ellis' young people. Mr. Geo. Barrett, a Trego old-timer, reached Wa-Keeney a few days ago from Mauhatlan, where he had beensojourn:ng tempoiarily. He is working in this place at his trade as a carpenter. We understand that our friend, Mr. A. Lawson, who lives some ten miles southeast of town, had the misfortune to be thrown from a horse on Wednesday, with the result of a collar bone being bro ken. Middleton & Ormerod raised the Mansard roof of their new mill yesterday, which adds to its appearance largely. When it is completed it will be one of the best mills in western Kansas. Ellis Headlight, 10, Dr. J. JE. Hiltz, a man of preposses sing appearance, is about to make a specialty of operative dentistry in this section of Kansas, and "Wa-Keeney will be his headquarters. He is said to be very proficient in his profession. County Clerk Pinkham has let the contract for the finishing off of the famous opera hall. This is the last room in the opera block which is nob either finished or being finished. The opera hall will be plastered on the sides and ceiled over head. A light snow fell Wednesday night. The weather really wasn't so awfully cold, but, with this point admitted, the fellow whom it didn't remind of Green land's icy mountains, without the India's coral-strand attachment, will do for a northern settler. Joseph Werlich has had a hole sunk to the depth of more than a hundred feet into one of his residence lots. The water witch said water would be found, but Mr. Werlich didn't want to go clear to China for the article, and he ordered that the boring be abandoned. S. K. Hogin took a trip to Wallace during the first half of the week. He reports J. S. Jenks, the old landlord and cattle handler there, as smiling a smole not a little ghastly when the grangers tell him they are settling those buffalo-grass hillocks for the purpose of farming. James F. Kershaw is about to begin the erection of a livery and feed stable on the lots just west of the opera house. From our acquaintance with Mr. Ker shaw, and from the additional fact that he is a brother of J. R's, we feel sure that he will do a safe, straight business, and be a credit to the city. Madsen, who lives jrust over the line in Trego county, had one of his work horses killed by lightning two weeks ago last Saturday night. Special Agent John D. Plintjer, of the German Insurance company, of Freeport, HL, adjusted and paid the loss yesterday, to the entire sat isfaction of Mr. Madsen. BUis Head hght, 10. Mrs. M. P.

Kessler, Esq., and his wife, in Collyer township, Thursday night were a grand triumph in every sense. The celebration of their crystal wedding was the occasion of this demon stration. The attendance was large, the supper elegant, the dancing superb, and everything else in proportion. Wa-Keeney people who attended the affair are nmfnoa in fhpir nraise of Mr. and Mrs. Kessler as entertainers, and we are dis posed to believe every word or it. A few days ago Mr. H. Menkeeyer's cow got onto land which S. H. Likens has rented. Clarence Likens ran the cow off the land, and about that time he and Mrs. Menkemeyer had a war of words.
