Leavenworth, county is not the only place in Kansas where the guilty can escape punishment on simple promises, nor is F. B. Dawes the only attorney who thinks the proper way to enforce the prohibitory law is to extract prom ises from its violators. The same thing has been done right here in Topeka by the head of the legal department of the state of Kansas. The story might be called, "How It Pays to Have a Stand in: or. Sticking the County for Costs." Durine the Labor Day celebration at Garfield park in September, 1897, one Albert Johnson whose real name was E. K. Grimes, was arrested for violat ing i.ie prohibiotry law and was twice convicted o the charge. About the same time Nick Chiles, the colored po litical striker and jointist, was arrested for runnirtg a joint at the fair grounds, and also convicted, yet neither of these men has ever been punished for break ing the law, and by the grace of Attor ney oeneral Godard they will escape punishment altogether. John J. Etzel was arrested with Grimes, and they were tried first be fore Justice C. P. Bolmar in Potwin. Both were convicted and Grimes was sentenced to 90 days in jail and fined $300 and costs, and Etzel was sentenced to 60 days in jail and fined $200 and costs. The costs amounted to $32.80. The case was appealed to the district court, and was there dismissed as against Etzel. but Grimes was again convicted and fined $200 and sentenced to jail for 60 days, and also to pay the costs which amounted to $65.30. Again the case was appealed this time to the court of appeals. It has never been tried there. The history of the case as shown by the court docket is something as follows: June 14, 1SS8 Case filed. Set for hear ing at November term. .ov. 8, 1S!8 Stipulation filed contin uing case to March, 1899, signed by George R. Snelling, assistant attorney general under L. C. Boyle. March 14 1S99 Continued to June, 1S99. June 13, 1899 Continued to November, 1899. - Nov. 14, 1S99 Continued to March, 1900. March 13, 1900 Continued indefinitely. The history of the Chiles case is al most exactly similar, except that it was tried in the district court to begin with, and Chiles was fined only $100 and sen tenced to 30 days in jail. The extreme regularity with which these two cases have been continued has caused considerable comment. The comment will be augmented when it is known that Attorney General Godard in person asked the court of appeals in open court to indefinitely postpone fur ther consideration of the cases, and to order them left off the docket unless they shall be again ordered on at some future time. This means that the prosecution is at an end and virtually amounts to a dis missal, and Shawnee county will pay the costs.The clerk's costs in the Grimes case alone amount to $132.80, besides the expense of the trials. The ground on which Mr.Godard ask ed that the cases be taken off the dock et was that the defendants had quit the business, and they or their families might suffer if they should be punished for their wrong-doing. Is it any wonder that it is hard to enforce the prohibi tory law when law-breakers are dealt with in this manner? Or that people complain that liquor prosecutions cost money when the officers allow the guilty to escape punishment after being twice convicted, and compelling the county to pay the costs? The explanations for the actions of both Attorney General Godard and his predecessor, L. C. Boyle, may lie in the fact that the defendants in both these cases are possessed of more or less po litical influence. Mr. Grimes has influ ential relatives, while Nick Chiles is a vigorous worker among the colored peo ple whenever there is an election. At the last term of the court of ap peals in November, the appeal of W. F. Lytle, another convicted jointist, was dismissed by default of the defendant, which meant that the judgment of the lower court would stand and the de fendant would be punished. The next day Judge. West, Mr. Godard's assist ant appeared before the court and vol untarily offered to have the dismissal set aside and the case continued until this term of the court, in order that the defendant might have another chance to escape. This term, however, the court dismissed the case permanently and Ly tle will go to jail. Genius and Judgment. Tennyson or Longfellow could take a worthless sheet of paper, write a poem on it, and make it worth $65,000. That's genius. Rockefeller can write a few words on a sheet of paper and make it worth $5,000,000. That's cap ital. Uncle Sam can take an ounce of gold and stamp upon it an "eagle bird" and make it worth $20. That's money. A mechanic can take material worth $3 and make it into watch-springs worth $1,000. That's skill. Ben Hur Cigars are now so well known that they are being sold in every state and territory in the LTnited States. That's enterprise. A merchant can take an article worth 75c and sell it for 1$. That's business. A woman can purchase a 75c hat, but prefers one that cost $27. That's fool ishness. A ditch digger works ten hours a day, and handles several tons of earth for $1.25. That's labor. The printer of this card can write a check for $9,000,000, but it would not be worth a dime. That's bogus. There are other factories in our line pretending that they can make just as good Cigars, That's gall. Everybody who is posted and wants the best Cigar on the mar ket buys the Ben Hur. That's good judgment. Suits the world of men Ben Hur 10c Cigars. Little Ben Hur, a jewel. Tor 5c. On sale at Geo. Burghart's and other first class dealers. Banker Routs a Robber. J. R.
