HOOKEY JIM'S RETURN.
A Desperado ATIiu Oaght to 11
bind Prison Walls.
'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
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
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

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.

At the Santa Fe's coal yards at Dodge
City the wages have been reduced to

Sauta Fe machine shops, has returned to
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

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 OLDEN CHURCH FUSS.
Police Judge Eitmligtr Galled ts Pass
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
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 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
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
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
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.
