ME. BRISTOWS WORK IN CUBA
From the Washington Post.
While the spokesmen and organs of
the Republican party are eagerly pooh
poohing and belittling the postoffice
scandals, Mr. Bristo'v is busily engaged
in showing us that the scandals are real
enough for our national shame and sor
row. One very significant feature of Mr.
Bristow's work thus far is the dis
closure of his opinion that these extra
ordinary salaries and allowances in
favor of officials stationed at Havana
are not as indispensable as we have
been asked to believe. He has not only
obliterated a great many offices, but he
has reduced in a very marked degree
the emoluments attached to those
which are retained. Already he has cut
down the expense account many thou
sands of dollars. Before all is done, he
will have shown, to the satisfaction of
the entire country, not only how much
has been stolen, but how much wasted
in the wicked and licentious carnival
that has held the Cuban boards for the
past year or so. We shall know the
extent of the outright robberies and
the names of the criminals. We shall
know, also, the extent of the profligacy
and the Identity of the traitors.
Mr. Kristow may be said to represent
in Cuba the integrity and high purpose
of the American people. He i3 there to

Fort Scott, June 8. The city council
has been called upon to meet on next
Tuesday evening in special session for
the purpose of trying to enact an oc-
upation tax. in the meantime me city
attorney will draw up an ordinance
placing a tax on every conceivable
branch of business, and at the meeting
of the council they can alter and add
as they like before the matter is
formally presented to the members.
This movement grew out of a state
ment made by Mr. Fredericks or tne
finance committee at the last meeting,
in which he said that the city would not
be able to meet the necessary obliga
tions at the time first set upon.
Mr. Fredericks of the finance- com
mittee reported that at the end of this
month the city would owe at least $14,-
000 with only about $4,600 to pay the
As a matter of retrenchment Mr.
Fredericks made a motion that all the

hiring of teams to help in the street
As an amendment Mr. Tite moved
that the hiring of street employes be
left to the street committee and city
engineer. Mr. Myers offered as a sub
stitute to the motion an amendment
that the street commissioner be allowed

the little work ordered, not to exceed
$100 per month, which was carried.
WANTS $10,000 DAMAGES.
Greenwood County Cattleman Sues a
K. C. Commission Company.
Emporia. June 8. John Edwafds,
formerly of Emporia, now in the cattle
business at Eureka, is begimng a suit
against two parties for $10,000 dam
ag"S on a cattle deal. Yesterday, VV in
field Freeman, of Kansas City, was in
town taking depositions in the case, as
an attorney for Edwards.
Some time ago, Edwards was buying
a big bunch of cattle. He- alleges that
he mr.de a deal with E. A. Guilde
meister, of Council Grove, who repre
sented the Kansas City Live Stock
Commission company, for a big bunch
of cattle; that after he had closed the
deal by paying" the commission com
pany $4,000 in checks, the commission
company refused the transaction and
returned to him his checks. He thinks
that he would have made a big profit
on the cattle.
The commission company, on the
otner hand, claims it had not made
the deal, that Guildemeister was not
authorized to make it for them, and
that if he did so it was without au
thority from the company, and they
had a perfect right to turn it down.
IN THE BOER LAND.
An Atchison Man Serving Under the
Atchison, June 8. Atchison figured on
the victorious side of the British-Boer
war, Charley Price, of this city, having
rendered most important service for
England. He was one of several men,
in charge of a regiment of engineers
who constructed the bridges for the
English army to cross rivers. His rel
atives in Atchison have been receiving
inters from him regularly, always writ
ten in the field.
His regiment carried an elaborate
system for making pontoon bridges,
and one of the achievements of the
regiment was the rapid construction of
a pontoon bridge across a stream as
wide as the Missouri, and Lord Rob
erts' army passed over it. The work of
Price's men is now at an end. He was
constantly at the front, and his regi
ment probably saw as much real war
as any regiment in the army. His
regiment was composed entirely of en
gineers who volunteered their services
when such a force of men were soreiy
needed by her majesty. He is now at
Johannesburg, which town he left in
gi'eat haste at the outbreak of the war.
HIGH PARIS RATES.
A Winfl-eld Man Back From Europe
Roasts the Exposition.
Winfleld, June 8 F. K. Robinson has
returned from Europe. Mr. Robinson
says the reports of extortionate prices
at Paris are not exaggerated. He was
there in April, and the hotels were then
charging about 80 per cent, more than
regular rates. Slay 1 rates were ad
vanced 50 per cent., and he understood
that June 1 the rates were to be again
advanced 50 per cent. This will make
anything like a decent room cost $3
P"r day with board about $2 extra. He
estimates that a person can go to Paris
and stay three weeks at a total cost
of about $300. This would not permit
of extravagance, but he thinks it
would enable the person to live com
fortably. FOR A STREET FAIR.

zens who have insured the building of
the road and paid for the right ot way.

Says He Has Practiced a Fraud For
New York,- June 8. Knowing that
death is near, Alexander Keegan today
made an affidavit confessing fraud and
deceit in an attempt to recover dam
ages from the Third Avenue Railroad
company. In 1894 Keegan was injured
in a collision between a car and a cart.
He subsequently sued the road and the
owner of the cart. There followed
years of litigation. Keegan succeeded
in making judges and doctors believed
that he was afflicted with epileptic fits
as the result of the accident, and he
secured a verdict for $3,000. The case
was appealed and is now on the court
of appeals calendar.
Keegan asserts in his affidavit that
he never suffered from epileptic fits,
and that whatever pain and loss of
memory he suffered was the result of
a bullet wound inflicted by himself
eighteen years ago.
