George Stanley Medlicott, the nely elected county treasurer, has a num
ber of features connected with his history which recommend him to the
story writers as well as the public. It: the ftr-.t rl-iee lie i-s net p na'ive born
American, having been bori :n l.i-bon, Portugal, of Irish parentage and is
ne rarticuiarly proud of the latter fact. He is barely thirty years of age
which makes him the youngest man who has ever been elected treasurer of
Shawnee county. Then again he led his ticket by several hundred and is
conceded to have made one of the best races of the camnaisn. He has lived
with his mother at SO ILineoln street for the past twenty" vears. having come
directly to Tojcki when he left the home of his birth. He has been assist
ant county treasurer for the past four and one-half years and has added to
the efficiency of the force, and his ability to direct the affairs of the office
is not questioned by those who are acquainted with him or know of his ser
vices to the county.
INSPECTION IS FINISHED
President Ripley and Santa Fe Officials
A party of the chief officials of the
'Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe Railway
company, including E. P. Ripley, its
president, are speeding eastward today
and will arrive in Chicago some time
this afternoon after an extensive trip
cf inspection over the lines of the com
pany in the southwest. The party is
traveling in a special train of six pri
vate cars and passed by, but not
through Topeka last night. The train
went on from Emporia to Kansas City
by way of the cutoff.
James E. Hurley, the general mana
ger of the company, and E.l L. Cope
land, the treasurer, met the party at
La Junta, Col., yesterday, and contin
ued on with them to Chicago.
Mr. Ripley has not been interviewed
much on this trip. The Evening Citi

The subject seemed to irritate the
"old man," (the railroad men refer to
him so generally), but the impenitra

wears, gave forth only a slight show
"It has also been stated that the
reason that the railroads are going to
make this voluntary raise of wages is
that it will serve the purpose of stem

which has been going over the country,
against high freight rates and alleged
"Nonesense: thereis nothing in it."
With that Mr. Ripley made an in
quiry of tho hotel clerk and then gave
himself over to the general discussion
of things pertaining to the Santa Fe.
He said that the journey westward had
been an interesting one. The western
country interested him he said that he
grew up with it and had watched its
gradual development into the great
country it is today.
He said that the Beler cutoff was

THE SNOW IS MELTING.
Did Little Damage to Tracks or
Snow Plows IJrought Out Early
Passenger and freight traffic on the
lines of the Chicago, Rock Island & Pa
cific, the Atchison, Tcpeka & Santa Fe
and the Union Pacific, which iadiate
from Topeka, has assumed its norma!
condition within the past 18 hours, and
with the exception of a few transconti
nental trains from the west, the sche
dules are being maintained today ac
cording to the time cards.
The snow which has prevailed during
the last couple of days throughout the
western portions of the state and to the
southwest is rapidly disappearing ac
cording to the reports received at the
general offices of the railroad compan
ies here, and this snow did little or no
damage to the tracks of the railroads,
except to blockade them in many locali
ties and thereby delay the through
trains. These blockades have been lift
ed during the last li hours with snow
plows and the warm sun of yesterday
afternoon and today has done much
more to clear the snow from the tracks.
On the Rock Island lines the snow
storm of the last two days delayed traf
fic most on the El Paso division from
Pratt, Kan., clear down to Santa Rosa,
N. M., tho worst conditions prevailing
between Bucklln, Kan., and Dalhart.Tex.,
where a wind of thirty miles an hour
prevailed during the snow storms and
packed the cuts along the line with solid
drifts of snow. these drifts have been
broken and trains are now running reg
ularly along the line. The Rock Island
also experienced considerable, inconven
ience along the Choctaw division, with
its terminus at Memphis, Tenn.
There was no snow in this section, but
some unusually heavy rains, which re
sulted in a number of washouts and
slides, put sections of this line out of
commission for the time ' being. All of
these breaks have been repaired and the
line is in operation today.
Reports received at the Santa Fe offices
today were to the effect that the snow
storms in the west and in the southwest
had done little or no damage to the tracks
of the road and had merely hindered the
service by the delaying of trains, because
of drifts find slippery tracks. During the
last twenty-four hours conditions had im
proved greatly and the trams were run
ning about on time today. A similar state
of affairs was reported from the Union

Mr. Mitchell is well known in To
peka and it ia expected that many will
take the opportunity to meet him
again. For some time, past he has
been in Kansas City taking treatment
in an effort to recover from injuries
received in a runaway accident that
almost cost him his life. His spine re
ceived a racking that has made him
unable to pursue his chosen work
among the Indians, owing to the fact
that he cannot ride horseback to get
around, so he is taking a period of en
forced rest, and in the meantime re
ducing the Navajo language to a writ
ten form to aid him in learning it and
preaching to the people.
Mr. Mitchell will also lead the Sun
