State Printing Plant Proving a Profit
able Venture for Kansas.
In two years more, according to the
report of State Printer T. A. McNeal,
the state of Kansas will have 'paid for
Its state printing plant with the money
saved on printing over the cost under
the old contract system.
Mr. McNeal has given out a com
parative statement between the two
years that the state has owned the
plant, 1906-06 and 1906-07, and the
two previous years, 1903-04 and 1904-
05, wnen tne plant was operated un
der the old system. The present plan
shows that Kansas has In the past two
fiscal years saved $4,511.24 over the
two previous fiscal years.
Two years agov July 1, the state ap
propriation of $141,000 became effec
tive to run the plant under the pres
ent system. Not only were all condi
tions met, and a much larger .volume
of work accomplished, but McNeal
Used only $131,176.59 of the appro
priation and turned back $9,528.30 in
to the state treasury.
The total appropriations, including
the deficiency and there usually has
been one In years past for the flsca)
years 1903-04 and 1904-05, under the
old system, was $195,687.83. Taking
the difference between McNeal's fig
ures and that sum, gives McNeal and
the new system a saving of $64,511.24
for two years alone.
The present ' state printing "plant,
the equipment and the ground, with
the appropriation for equipment made
this year and the additional ground
bought, makes the total cost of the
plant $91,000. Of this amount the
state has saved $64,000 In two years.
"In another two years," said Mr.
McNeal. "the plant will be paid for
and we will be $30,000 ahead."
For the quarter just ended, com
paratively the state saved $21,741.23
as against the old plan. . -

has been filed with the clerk of the
district court in a damage suit in
which Samuel Sul'Mvan is plaintiff and
City Marshal E. J. Prltchett, Police
Judge J. I. Stakebake and Policeman
H. W. Folck, Jt., and H. C. Church
ara defendants. '
The petition charges that. H. ' C.
Church anid H. W. Folck, Jr., acting
under the direction of Marshal
Prltchett, unla.wfu.lly assaulted Sulli
van, who was en route to the harvest
field, placed him under arrest. In
formed him that he had been arrested
as a crook, for having stolen- a dia
mond and gold ring which was the
property of Sullivan. It says he was
arrested without warrant and that he
was taken to the jail by force, where
the policeman, with the aid of Mar
shal . Prltchett, forcibly searched the
person of Sullivan, taking his dia
mond, ring, gold watch, chain and an
ordinary pocket knife, and then un
lawfully locked him in the city jail. It
says that Police Judge Stakebake,
without any formal charge in writing,
informed Sullivan that he was fined
the sum of $10 and costs, in all $16,
for carrying the pocket kn.ife. The
petition continues with the ,' charge
that Sullivan was imprisoned until
June 29 and that In the meantime the
officers endeavored, pursuant to their
concerted purposes, to coerce Sullivan
into selling the diamond for $40, that
he would have money to pay his fine
and enough with which to get out of
town. It says Sullivan refused and
offered to work out his fine, but on
June 29 he was informed that his
board in the city jail . was . costing
money and he was discharged from
custody. The officers retained the
diamond, giving Sullivan 30 days in
which to redeem it.
