PETE THE PINCHER.
He
Made Things Interesting
For Women in Stores.
Saturday afternoon "Pete thePincher"
left town at the request of Sheriff Cook.
"Pete the Pincher's" right name is
Hawkins, so he says, and Cook had been
Hunting for Hawkins" for some time
when he found him. There was no ef
fusiveness about the meeting. Cook
merely nodded at Hawkins and Haw
knis merely glanced at Cook and then
they walked down Kansas avenue and
Hawkins took a Rock Island train for
somewhere. Cook don't care where.
Pete the Pincher" had been making
trouble in the dry goods stores. His
presence, after he had operated for a
wnue, was very obnoxious to the . wo
men in the stores. He had a mad and
uncontrollable desire to pinch and he
was not particular in what locality he
pinched. Pete the Pincher went into
the dry goods stores where the aisles
were crowded and his wanderings could
be told by stifled screams and.exclama-
tions. He very unceremoniously
pinched the women in the crowd. A
woman might be buying a piece of red
canton flannel when suddenly she would
feel something which .she thought might
be a snake bite. . she would scream and
grab her arm or some otier part of her
anatomy and look around to find Haw
kins standing there unconcerned.
He was caught in Crosby Brothers'
store and nabbed by Erastus Crosby
who escorted Mm to the Bidewalk lust
in time to meet Sheriff Cook who took
Mr. Hawkins in tow and piloted him to
the depot after making him promise he
would leave town.

the
Means an Expenditure of Over
$17,000 in Money.
It is not much wonder that in organ
izing seventeen benefit districts for
opening streets, involving a special tax
on about 4,500 lots, and a total expendi
true of $17,013, there should have been
some mistakes made. The city officials
are now getting the full benefit of the
mistakes.
There is a procession of Indignant or
inquiring taxpayers constantly headed
for the city building, and the city at
torney and city clerk are kept busy ex
plaining and conciliating. Usually the
taxpayer is satisfied, after investigation,
that he is not being robbed or victim
ized, but occasionally there is ail excep
tion. -
The biggest exception so far is in the
benefit district known as "district for
opening Second street from Western
avenue to Fillmore, Third street from
soutbeast corner of Fernald tract to
Fillmore, and to widen Fillmore fron.
Third street to the south line of tne
Bromich tract." It will cost $6,445 tt
make these improvements, according to
the apraisers' report, and the people liv
ing in the district are preparing to hold
a meeting for the purpose of taking at
concerted action to smash tne wnoie
proposition. It is practically certain
that a suit will be filed in the district
court to enjoin the collection of the spe
cial tax,, and thus test the validity ,of
the organization of the district.
The district which is planning to
make this fight in the courts involves a
larger expenditure of money than any
other one district. It covers a territory
bounded on the north by the city limits.
on the east by Polk street, on the south
by Fifth street, and on the west by
Buchanan street. The people living in
this district make two principal objec
tions to the collection of the proposed
tax.
First, they maintain that the district
should have been made a great deal
larger, so that the cost to each lot
would have been less. To raise the $6,-
445 required to buy the property con
demned it will be necessary to tax every
lot about $10. The average for all the
benefit districts in town is only about
$3,75 per lot.
Second, it is claimed that the apprais
ers were unjust in their appraisement,
and have made it necessary for those
who live at some distance from the pro
posed improvement, and who are not
benefited thereby, to pay the same as
those who live in the immediate vicin
ity. The appraisers were R. M. Spivey,
Samuel Dolman and Fred N. Millet.
They insist that they have done the
work according to law.
It may be that the city has made mis
takes in handling the vast amount of
business required to create seventeen
benefit districts for opening streets. The
responsibility for the mistakes is nrob-
aDiy divided between the- council, the
appraisers and the taxpayers. The
council may have made mistakes in de- I
terminine the boundaries for the dis
tricts and in "railroading" through the
appraisers' reports without knowing
what they were doing; the appraisers
may have erred in their judgment, and
the taxpayers are no doubt at fault for
failing to protect their interests by keep
ing tneir eye on botn the council and
the appraisers until too late.
The excuse for all these blunders Is
not hard to find. Topeka simply tried
to handle more of this sort of business
this season than its official facilities
permit. In common slang, it bit oft
more than it could masticate. It tried
to do so much that it has to rush things
through without due consideration.
One of the biggest benefit districts in
the city, for the opening of Morse
street, was officially buried by the coun
cil after the appraisers had made up
their report, because Councilman Ber
gundthal, who owned property in the
district, was not satisfied with the
amount of damages allowed him by the
appraisers, and threatened to start a
suit unless it was rectified. It would
perhaps have been a good thing if other
districts had been similarly buried.
Creating benefit districts for street op
ening, and appraising-the property in
those districts, is a bitter sort of a pill,
and involves an immense amount of
work, to say nothing of expense. The
council has for vear after year delayed
taking this Dill, and the clamor for the
opening of certain streets, especially in
North Topeka, has been growing louder
and louder. This year, the council grit
ted its teeth, and decided to finish up
everything in sight at one gulp. The
result is that the rush of work is big
ger than the city is prepared to -handle
with ease.
The following is a complete list of the
17 districts which have been created,
and the amount which It will cost to
make the specified improvement:
Opening Second and Third and
widening Fillmore $ 6,445.00
Opening alley in rear of Spruce

STEPPED OVER A CLIFF.
Mountain Climbers Have Narrow Es
cape From Death.
Mount Eagle, Tenn., Aug. 25. At For
est Point last night Miss Vinnie Tucker,
a prominent young woman of Decherd,
and one of a party on a mountain trip,
stepped over the cliff. Sidney Cowan,
of Nashville, sprang to her rescue. He
caught her, but too late to prevent her
fall. Both were dragged over the
precipice together and landed on the in
cline 40 feet below. Though Cowan was
badly shaken up he was still conscious
as his body rolled down the ledge, and
he caught hold of a bush which stayed
his descent. Miss Tucker, bleeding and
unconscious, was rolling down the way

Two of the Craddock rooters, who
came to Topeka Saturday, went home
minus their money and Samuel Martin
is locked up In the police station charg
ed with having picked it from their
pockets. .
Martin was arrested about midnight
Saturday after a footrace between him
and the police which was enlivened by
a dozen pistol shots. Martin was ap
prehended at the Rock Island depot,
just as the last fusion rooters were
leaving for home, with his hand in an
other man's pocket and in his hand was
a purse containing some small change.
The man yelled and Martin ran, leaVr
ing the pocketbook behind. Several po
licemen were standing near and they
gave chase. Martin sprinted around the
depot building with Officers Lucas,
Bradshaw and Jackson following him.
When he reached Kansas avenue he
started east on First street with a fusil
lade of shots aiding him at every jump.
John Lucas got his swamD angel to
working and the bullets came so close
to Martin that he thought it best to
stop. He was taken to the station but
the man whose pocket he had been in
vestigating had taken the train for
home. Earlier in the evening a Kansas
City man who came with the excursion
ists, was robbed of $100. Chief of Police
Zimmer, of Kansas City, notified Chief
Donovan that he would find out who
the men were and have them appear
against Martin.
