Attorney Danford went to Russell Springs on Monday, to attend to business before the district court of Logan county Judge Osborn went to Russell Springs on Monday, to open the first term of the district court known to Logan county.

Mrs. Judge Osborn and children ar rived here Saturday and will spend the present week as the guests of their many friends in this city. Ness Cxty Times, 7. The Reaeu of last Saturday prints the poem which Mrs. M. F. Beavers, of this city, read in Ellis on Memorial day, The poem takes up nearly two columns in that paper. It is full of sublime thoughts, expressed in eloquent temrs. S. R. Cowick, Esq., was down to Kan sas City and Topeka the latter part of last week. He arrived home on Sunday, and attended church in the evening. While at church, he was taken very sick, and had not recovered thoroughly by Monday. William, son of Thomas Shorthill, of this city, while riding a pony Tuesday afternoon, was thrown to the ground, the animal falling upon him. The dislocation of one of the boy's ankles was the result Dr. Upshaw soon reset the injured mem ber. At the festival, given on June 2 by the ladies of the Presbyterian church, about seventy dollars were realized in the way of receipts. The net profit was fifty dollars. This result is a pointed denial of the oft-repeated remark that there is no money in this community. R. L. Stair, son of our old friend, L. E. Stair, has come to Trego county to live with his father. He was here, visit ing his father, in 1883, and since then has served an enlistment of five years in the 22 infantry, U. S army. He was recent ly discharged from the service at Fort Lewis. It will be a cold day when we do say that Trego county don't forge to the fore. The boy of whom we tell is known quite well as one who don't purpose be ing a bore. In looking for work, he was willing to jerk the weeds to the other shore. This boy on his walk didn't paint with chalk to raise a furore. He just took along a box of cigars to keep up the bars with others who worked at the same place before. P. S. He hit a job. C. C. Hopkins, editor of the Re publican, and J. L.

Now, who was that farmer? A drive down to Ed. Chalk's place on June 3 convinced us of the truth of what we had been hearing that he, is situated nicely. He has one of the best residences in the county, a splendid barn of large size, a large farm fenced into small fields and pastures, a large bunch of cattle, merry children, a helpful wife, and so on. We are under obligations to them for kind treatment. People who, coming here as they came, without any means whatever, and who have succeeded so well, can be relied upon for the exercise of kindness. A Kansas Event. McMiken Liberated form. Jail by the Supreme Court. A "Wa-Keeney Lawyer Secures the Result by Applying New Tac tics. On Angust 16, 1886, Robbins was murdered at Wallace. James Mc- Micken was charged with the crime. He was arrested, taken before Justice Ullman at Wallace, and by him committed to the jail at Hays City. After having lain in jail at Hays City for some three weeks, he was transferred, by order of Judge Os born, to the jail at Salina. There he was kept until within the past week. On Sat urday last, the Kansas supreme court is sued an order for his release. It is the history leading to this release which we intend to write in the portion of this article which follows. At the first term of. the district court held in Trego county following the arrest of Mc- Micken Wallace county being attached to Trego county for judicial purposes upon the application of F. Danford, Esq., attorney for the defendant, the case was continued until the next term. Since that first term, two regular terms of the district court have been held in Trego county, without moving the Me Micken case, except that the district judge ordered its continuance, on the ground that he feared that this court had not jurisdiction to try an offence which had been committed in Wallace county. Our statutes, Section 220 of the Code of Criminal Procedure, provides that a person charged with a felonyr and com mitted to jail without bail and who shall not be tried at or before the close of the second term held after the information has been filed, shall be entitled ta a discharge-so far as relates to the' offence for which he was committed, unless the delay is occasioned upon his application, or for the want of time in which to try. Under this sfntntA. fam mntinnanees having been had without the procure ment of the defendant, Mr. Danford, at the close of said second term, filed a mo tion before Judee Osborn to discharge the defendant under this statute. Judge Osborn overruled the motion Mr. Dan ford immediately filed a petition in habeas corfnv in the supreme court, pleading the entire record in the case, and asking that the defendant be discharged. This case was tried on the first day of the May term of the supreme court since when that tribunal held it under advisement until last Saturday, when it held thaii under the statute, the defendant was en titled to a discharge, and so ordered. Thus, for the first time in the jurispru dence of this state, is discharged from imprisonment for a grave offence, without a trial, and as the result of negligence upon the part of the prosecution, a man of whose guilt or innocence the public had the right to be apprised at the end of a trial. The attorneys for the prosecution were A. J. Harlan, of Wa-Keeney; J. G. Moh ler, of Salina, and A. D. Gilkeson, of Hays City. The counsel for the crosecution was represented in the trial of the case in the supreme court Lawyers were present from many portions of the state. The case was a novel one, and the legal fra ternity were deeply interested in its de termination. GARDEN SEEDS. A large lot just received at Kelly Hard ware and Implement Co.
