'Hookey Jim" Fuston, colored, one of the worst criminals that ever committed a cowardly or vile deed in Topeka, has returned to his old stampintr ground, after brief but exciting sojourns in Wichita and many other adopted homes. He is as mean as ever and the sharp, dangerous iron hook on the stump of his right arm is still there and sharp and dangerous a3 ever. Jim tried to kill a man in Wichita a few days ago and skipped town, so Chief Cotie notified Chief Lindsey to capture him if he came here. Sergeant Donovan located him last evening near the Shawnee mill. He had been drinking alcohol and was feeling mean. He was a bad man to handle. Donovan ordered Hookey Jim to "come along," but instead of doing so he raised the dreadful hook over tho Sergeant's bead as though to strike. Jim is strong as an ox, and the officer's hand instinc tively went for his revolver. There might have been serious trouble, but for the gathering of a crowd and with it Officer bummers. Together they marched Fuston to the jail. There Jiui became more ugly and unruly. He made several efforts to use his hook, but the hook was finally unstrapped and locked up. In court to day Fuston was fined $10 for being drunk and disorderly. Several efforts have been made to get Jim to quit wearing his hook. It is a deadly weapon. On one occasion he in serted the hook under the rib of a vic tim and lifted him off the pavement sev eral times. "Hookey Jim" ought to be in the penitentiary. Republican Veterans. At the meeting of the Veteran Repub lican league at the court hqsiee last eve ning, the Republican state ticket was ratified by the adoption of the following resolution: -Resolved, That we do most heartily and earnestly endorse and ratify the nominees and platform of the Re publican party in convention assembled at Topeka June 6, 7 and 8, aod pledge to the party our most hearty support" Speeches were made bv P. H. Conev, F. a Stumbautrb, R. B." Welch, T. P. Rodgers, D. G. TMotaon and IL G. Larimer. NO 3IORE GARNISHEE. Good News to All Santa Fe Em ployes. JUDGE CALDWELL SO DECIDES. Other Railroad ew or Varied, Inter est Personals and General A'otes. Tho wages of employes of the Santa Fe are no longer subject to garnishment. A few months before the Santa Fe went into the hands of the receivers, an order was issued signed by General Manager J. J. Frey, to the effect that any employe whose wages were garnisheed as many as three times would be dis charged from the service of the company. This order largely reduced tho number of garnishments for the time, but since the employes of the com pany have been working so few hours, their wages do not amount to enough to meet their obligations and the number of garnishments has been so largely in creased that it has for some time taken the entire time of one man in the trea surer's office to attend to that business. A few days ago the receivers presented this matter to Judge Henry C. Caldwell, of the United States circuit court, who has now issued an order cutting of! all garnishments. In this order he says the employes of the court who are operating the Santa Fe will receive the wages earned by them personally, and that pro ceedings to garnishee, from the state courts will not be recognized. While this is seemingly a benefit to the employes, yet it will be a hardship to some whose wages are at this time bare ly sufficient to supply their families with the necessaries of life. Many merchants who are usually will-' ing to extend credit to Santa Fe men, will insist upon a cash basis of trade when their rights to garnishee the wages of their customers are cut off. SPIKES AND SfABKS, Personal Notes Among tbe Railroad Shops at Topeka. At the Santa Fe's coal yards at Dodge City the wages have been reduced to $1.5 a day aud a large number of Ital ians brought in and employed. The coal is going out at the rate of fifty to one hundred cars daily, and it is thought the supply will be exhausted in about two weeks. Mrs. J. M. Maery and daughter Josie, who have been here for several weeks visiting her son-iu-law, Jud Coe of the Sauta Fe machine shops, has returned to Ohio. Wm. Swan of the Santa Fe brass foun dry left yesterday for his visit of three months to his old home in England. The Santa Fe shop boys are greatly interested in their bicycles and this evening at the fair grounds Bob Wright of the machine shops, who doesn't think much of bicycles as a means of rapid transit, will endeavor to run half a mile while Jud Coe, Frank Anderson and Jake Vogel do a full mile ou their wheels. There will be other races to morrow. . John Player has been distributing the cigars this week to the shop boys of the Santa Fe on his recent marriage. Secretary C. M. Jones of the railroad Y. M. C. A. is at White City visiting relatives. W. C. Potter, who lives at 717 Adams street, had the forefinger of his right hand mashed off this morning while working on a bridge on the Santa Fe near Jarbalo. He let a rail fall on it. S. T. Pfeffer is now the conductor on the Santa Fe's Atchison local freight The ISanta Fe shop men are beginning to wonder if every day'll be Sunday bye-and-bye. They have three a week now. O o i 11 j to Anbury Park. A large number of Kansas teachers expect to attend the annual meeting of tbe National Educational associatiou at Asbury Park, N. J., beginning July 10 The Santa Fe will handle the party from Kansas City to Chicago, and tbe train will probably leave iansas City at 5:30 o'clock on the afternoon of July 5. The round trip rate, including membership fee to the association, will be $ 33 from all Missouri river points in Kansas and Missouri. Hsrdihlp for Railroad Men. General Superintendent Charles Dun lap of Chicago, and Assistant Superin tendent A. J. llitt of Topeka, suffered some of the inconvenience of ordinary travelers on their own road, the Rock Island, Wednesday night. They were at some small town on the southwest line and thought to catch an early freight home so they could get here by bed time. The train was . delayed several hours, however, and the men who are used to special traius did not reach Topeka until after 3 o'clock in the morning. CAN'T STAND IT. A. Jefferson County Populist Delegate Who Is Now a Republican. The Mail is in possession of the badge of A. H. Miller, one of the Jefferson county Populists in attendance at the state convention, who dropped into J. N. Henry's hardware store yesterday morn ing, and turned over his orange ribbon to Mr. Henry, said, in the presence of a Mail reporter: "I am through with this thing; for the last three or four years I have been making a fool of myself and I can't stand it any longer. I will never vote the ticket aud platform put up by the Populists and I know of twenty five more from Jeffersou county who have sworn to quit them; one of them was a delegate to the convention. Here after I will vote with the Republican party where I belong." The badge which Mr. Miller wore in the Populist convention may be seen at the Mail of fice. North Topeka Mail. An Echo from the World's Fair. The Lake Shore Route has recently gotten out a very handsome litho water color of the "Exposition Flyer," the fa mous twenty hour train in service be tween New York and Chicago during the Fair. Among the many wonderful achievements of the Columbian year this train which was the fastest long dis tance train ever run holds a prominent place, and to anyone interested in the subject, the picture is well worth fram ing. Ten cents in stamps or silver sent to C. K. Wilber, We3t. Pass. Agt., Chica go, will secure one. The PI a sue at Hons Konc Hosg Kong, June 15. Eighty-four more deaths from the plague are report ed.

Police Judge Eitmligtr Galled ts Pass Upon It. The police court today resolved Itself into an ecclesiastical council to try Jeff Davis, the colored "silver tongued ora tor" for heresy, and to hear both sides of the case, in which Rev. G. D. Olden, of the Second Baptist church, is charged by some of his lambs with appropriating church funds at Chattanooga, Tennessee. On Monday night a called meeting of the church was held for the purpose of talking over finances, and also to talk over Jeff Davis' move in circulating handbills containing the charges against the pastor. The church was well filled and the meeting had lasted some time when Jeff Davis himself entered, and took a seat near the back door. There is some argument as to whether Davis is a member of the church or not Some say he is, and others who side with the pastor in the quarrel, say he has been expelled for non-attendance. Two of the pastor's deacons ordered Davis to get out, but he insisted that he was a member and refused to do so. The deacons are said to have put him out and for this Davis had them arrested for as assault. They are L. D. Bradshaw and II. Edwards. It took more than an hour to try the case and -at the end of that time Moderator Ensminger decided that the deacons were not guilty of any as sault and ordered them discharged. If kicking over the traces is heresy there appears to be little doubt that Jeff Davis is a heretic of the worst stamp. EELS STOPPED THE MILL. C. O. Knowles' Flouriagr 31111 Brought to a S-anUstlll. A story comes from Pratt county which might be taken with a few grains of al lowance if it were not for the fact that C. O. Knowles of this city vouchs for its truthfulness. Mr. Knowles owns a mill at Saratoga known as the Saratoga roller mills. It is operated by water power. A short time ago the mill hands found the mill gradually "slowing down" until it finally stopped. All efforts to start it proved of no avail. The machinery was overhauled but nothing was found to retard the ma chinery until some one entered the com partment where the water wheel was situated. Several dark Objects were twisted around the shaft of the wheel which turned out to be the mangled re mains of four enormous eels which had effectually stopped the entire mill ma chinery. KEEPING IT DARK. The Charge of Corruption at the Slate Penitentiary. G. C. Clemens is still fighting for an investigation of the charges of corrup tion at the state penitentiary. He says he proposes to keep up his fight until the administration is forced to investigate, and he thinks it won't be long until political reasons will force an investigation. Governor Lewelling in an effort to get around the responsibility of an investi gation has referred the charges to the directors of the institution but as they are said to be parlies to the corruption it is not likely that any startliug revela tions will come from that source. Edwin A. Ans:in for Probate Jndfe. Edwin A. Austin, who has been an nounced as a candidate for the Republi can nomination as probate judge of this county at the primaries next Saturday, is a well known and successful lawyer of this city and well qualified in every re spect for the position. The enviable po sition he has achieved in his profession and the esteem and respect of his many friends invite the confidence and support of all Republicans who desire the nomi nation of a ticket of best men. As as sistant attorney general under Hon. W. A. Johnston and S. B. Bradford some years ago he made a very creditable record as an efficient, competent and faithful officer. This is "his first aspira tion for an elective office and his friends declare that the Republicans of this county by selecting him as their candi date for the office of probate judge will add strength to the county ticket. LOCAL MENTION. Captain Gish has lately taken to wear ing a cane. Chief Lindsey has discarded his blue uniform for a nobby grey suit. The residence of R. G. Ingersoll, 815 West Tenth street, and J. R Sim, 712 Fillmore, were entered by burglars this week. 1 'Say, Otto, vaa you going to Kansas City down today to hear dot great singer, aind it?" "Yaw! I tink I vill go."

The Santa Fe plug was 20 minutes late out of Lawrence last evening aud got into Topeka, 26 miles away, on time. They ran at 60 miles an hour between stops. Thomas Reed, who isn't any relation to the czar from Maine, was arrested last night by Captain Gish and Officer Gor don, on suspicion of being a bad charac ter. He will probably stay in the police station until tomorrow. Lee Herbold, a bad boy 13 years old, was arrested last night by Sergeant Don ovan for carrying a concealed weapon. He carried a dirk knife a fuot long. His brother told the court that Lee was a bad boy, and couldn't be controlled.
