The meat market of A. B. Mullin, 110 West Kighth avenue, was robbed some time last niglit and a negro, Jones Johnson, is locked in the city Jail charged with drunkenness sus pected of being: the burglar. The rob ber gained admission by cutting- the screen on the back door and lifting the latch by reaching through the opening so made. There are two cash registers in the shop but the thief overlooked one of them containing about $25 in small change. The cash reg-irter which was robbed contained between ten and eleven dol lars in small change and this the thief made away with and it was the ex penditure of the small change which leu lu iim ai rf ai ui Liie suspt'Ll. LJU T inj? the afternoon the man now under arrest came to the shop and walked through "into the back room, saying that he wanted to help one of the men who was employed in that department -but was ordered out as no one knew him. When arrested Johnson was with half a dozen worthless negroes and had visited some of the lower Kansas avenue - drinking -places and spent money freely, most of which was in nickels and dimes. He was booked as a drunk but was afterwards Identified by the proprietor of the place as the man who was ejected during the afternoon. He denies that he burg larized the place but has told a num ber of conflicting stories as to how he came into possession of so much small change and as to his whereabouts last night as well.

Popular Fielder and a Cash Bonus for Wooley. Gerald Davis, or Red as he Is more popularly known among the Topeka fans, has been traded to Leavenworth for Eli Wooley. the little left-handed outfielder. Two hundred dollars was also given by the local management to help the deal along. Wooley is one of the best outfielders of the Western as sociation and has a strong arm. This ought to help the local outfield as there are no especially strong throw ers. Davis leaves tomorrow for Leav enworth and Wooley will join the lo cal aggregation tonight in Kansas City on the way to Webb City. Deals for trading Davis have been on for some time and have occasioned no surprise among the fans who have known for some time that he did not stand In well with Captain Hurlburt. While Davis is a good player, his being trad ed to Leavenworth will probably tend to promote more harmonious relations a'tnong the members of ttie team. Gilbert, a , pitcher, 'will probably, not report. ' He was sent transportation at his home In Michigan last Friday morning and has had ample time to reach here. He was needed for the Wichita series principally and now that he is not here. Manager Herman Crow has wired to have his transpor tation cancelled. Unless he is now on the road, where it is too late to cancel his transportation, he will not join the team. MARSHALL'S PLAY TOXGIHT. First Evening Concert at the City Park.

The appellate division of the supreme court today denied the application of city officials acting In behalf of Mayor McClellan to prevent a recount of votes cast foT mayor. Unless counsel for Mayor Mc Clellan makes further appeal this seems to leave the way clear to begin the recount for which Mr. Hearst contends. 631 KANSAS AVENUE Special Meeting. There will be a called meeting of Naomi Rebekah Lodge No. 95 at the, hall Wednesday, July 17, at 2:30 p. m., to instruct trustees regarding a hall. J. BURLINGAME. Noble Grand. MRS. L. R. DISBROW. Rec. Sec'y- LOCAL MENTION. A marriage license was issued by Probate Judge Hayden this afternoon to Frank Jones, aged 32 and Madge Davison, aged 20. Both parties are from Topeka. The street commissioner commenced laying sidewalks on the East Sixth ave nue viaduct today. Mr. George Anthony will erect a dwell ing to cost $2,700 at 415 Tyler street. - F. G. Drenning. city attorney, is now at Livingstone, Montana, where a let ter has been addressed to him with the mystic letters of H. H. following the name. Ask the officials at the city hall what H. P. means. William Lee was arrested this morn ing charged with violating his parole which released him from the peniten tiary only a short time ago. He has been working but part of the time of late and spending the remainder of his time as well as his money about the low drinking resorts of the city. E. Clinkscaie. an old colored man, was arrested today by Humane Officer King, charged with driving a horse unfit for service and will have an opportunity to explain the matter to Judge Urmy this afternoon. - IN SIXTWTRICT Charles Emmons a Believer in Roosevelt Theory. Norton Editor Having Trouble With County Superintendent. STOCKTON GETSLIGIITS Electric Plant Will Be Installed at Once. ' W. B. Ham's Friends Approve His Action in Attorneyship. Charles Emmons, editor of the Hill City Republican. believes in Roose veltism., He is also partial to the lords of creation. The .' new arrival at his home is a boy, making three and only one girl. : For several years the Norton Cour ier has been the medium through which the superintendent of public in struction of that county has reached the schools and the ears of the teach ers, and this . information has been printed as free as the waters which run in the Prairie Dog creek. The in formation ought to be continued, but for some reason not stated at the pres ent, there seems to be a hitch some where, not on. account of the Courier, for the editor has tendered the col umns of his paper, to the new superin tendent free of charge as in past years. Before the close of the year Stockton will be lighted with electricity, besides her Masonic order Is planning the erection of a magnificent new hall. Harvest headers were in full blast all over Graham County Sunday last. W. B. Ham. member of the legisla ture from Rooks county, has set a wise precedent in refusing the appointment of attorney for the railroad board. He is a candidate for congress to succeed Reeder, and he didn't think it was the square deal idea to chase after two offices at the same time. Some of the Sixth district fellows are claiming that John Royce put this Job up on the governor to appoint Ham in order to take a strong man for congress out of the way of Reeder, while others are of the opinion that ' he Wants the office himself. Royce and Mead ought to pull together, for they are antiprimaryand antisquare deal politically. It was too bad that Mead had to go to Topeka and announce his candidacy for con gress, for his friends had given it out taht he would be. a candidate in the Sixth district, instead of in Topeka. But he changed as -do all the politi cians, and whenever any of them want an office they invariably go to the state capital first and ..make their wants known. , The Northwest Klansas Chautauqua commences in Oberlln July 28 and continues ten days. . It will be a suc cess, for the people there have never failed on any good" turn for the town. Besides many notaWle speakers from abroad who will . bp1' present, the fol lowing from the Atwood Patriot will set all minds at rest on the home speakers: Oberlin is full to overflow ing with brainy mortals, among whom we might mention Prof. H. O. Caster, Colonel L. G. Parker. Columbus Borin, Judge W. H. Langmade, Deacon Col dren of the Herald and John P. O'Grady, any one of whom we would walk ten miles through a scorching sun to hear orate, and whose name should have found a placeon the programme. The probate Judge of Graham coun ty contradicts a statement printed in a Hill City paper that he ties the mar riage knot Sundays- as well as through the week. Judge Martin answers the item stating that he is willing to go to any part of the county Sundays to perform the ceremony, but that he never has and will not issue a mar riage license on Sunday. A close observer of the wheat yield in the vicinity of Colby, in Thomas county, predicts there will be market ed in that town not less than 100 car loads. The big event of the year in Kensington- is her annual picnic. Her peo ple this- year are too busy to celebrate only two days, August 16 and 17, In stead of three as heietofore. One of the Norton papers said that it took a carload of malt to quench the thirst of their people Fourth of July. A quarter section upland farm near Almena sold for $7,000, which according to the Plaindealer was the highest price ever paid for a prairie "quarter"- in that vicinity. The Seventh Day Adventists have dedicated a $2,000 church in Bird City. Volume 28, No. 1, was the last issue of the Atwood Citizen. And in these years that paper has watched the growth of the town from a few strag gling buildings to a town bordering close to the 1,000 mark in population. It is said the probate Judge of Gra ham county is having about all the business he can attend to in his office marrying people that the Hill City min isters' will petition the next legislature to so change the law to allow only ministers of the gospel to perform mar riage ceremonies. There are 195 school children in Gra ham county, who were neither absent nor tardy for five months during the past school year. And those children are entitled to more than a little taffy. Gralnfield, that usually nice progres sive towp out in Gove county, is getting her name up. Suitors for the hand of one of her pretty young ladies got to settling their disputes by shooting at one another, in which the marshal was call ed on to settle the disturbance. The case will be aired in court. - The two Downs newspapers and the two in Osborne are wide apart on the congressional deal. Two of them ap pear to favor Congressman Reeder, while the other two favor Young and Ham. Better get together and give the delegation to Charley Landls. One of the prominent square dealers in Osborne county says: "Us square deal newspa per fellows want a change so we can have an office." And there you have it. The Pioneer says Col. D. B. Dyer, of Smith county, has come out openly for George Holland for congress. That cught to settle it without any of the other fellows getting into the face. Seventy-two gallons of ice water was used by the thirsty ones who traded In the Smith dry goods store in Hill City, in one day. Wasn't that much better than quenching thirst with the "two per cent" beverage. The Record is the new paper in Brewster, Thomas county, by G. W. Woods, publisher, and Mrs. K. F. Woods, editor. This will be unusual for the visitors who call on the Record to see the fighting editor confronted by a woman with a mallet In one hand and the shooting stick in the other. The new paper has a good line of advertls-Irs- The first new wheat raised in Rooks county and marketed at the Plalnvill? Mill and Elevator, company tested 63 pounds to the bushel. Joseph Jelenick. who raised it, has 500 acres, which he estimates will yield 20 bushels an acre. The Gove county : Jail la so full of confiscated- booze that -there Isn't room for any of the prisoners. .... For the benefit of the Osborne Far mer: The Democrats of the. Sixth dis trict will hardly go into Nebraska to nnd a candidate with whom to beat Reeder. Bob Hendricks, formerly of Atwood, has crossed over" the state line, and Is now operating a bank in Beaver City, Neb. . It is claimed Beloit has twenty auto mobiles. The strangest part of this is that neither of the Mitohell county candidates for congress is the owner of JJ16'.. 11 would be a good idea for both Mead and. Young to own one between them, for if either one of them is so fortunate as to get the nomination they can borrow from the other. Rail road passes will be hard to. get on and after January 1, 1908. ... Th,ere are rumors that another Sixth district paper will soon be against Reeder. A postoffice has been moved from the building owned by one of the newspaper men to more comfort able quarters. . .. The Hill City New Era has Its new Mmplex type setting machine in run ning order, and 1n a column article the editor tells its readers all about It. The article closes as follows: "It is certainly the best and most wonder ful machine that ever graced a' coun try shop." -The new State bank at Paradise, In Russell county, is doing business. The name of Paradise in connection with the famous Paradise flats ought to be a big item for the new bank. The town is small, lots of room to spread out, and a country surrounding and tributary hard to duplicate in the state. . The friends of Dr. John B. Dykes of Lebanon, Smith county, are urging him to become a candidate for presi dential elector. He is chairman of the Republican committee of his county. His flop several years ago from democracy and populism was complete. In every campaign from that time to the present the Republi cans have heard from him. -. The opposition political papers in the Sixth district have sprung the name of Henry W. O'Shant, present Democratic member of the legislature from Ellis county, as a suitable man to nominate for congress. He lives in Hays City, and-if he is the, nominee, watch the good, round majority his county will roll up for him. A. G. Mead of Beloit, who Jumped into the congressional race a short time ago, says that he has been a can didate for some time, and has been writing letters' to this effect all over the district. The writer of Sixth dis trict items was working on the Atch ison Champion when Col. John A. Martin first ran for governor. In that contest Martin did most of his cam paigning by writing letters to the peo ple asking their support. He won out. Who knows but Mead has writ ten enough letters to capture the con gressional nomination. The only dif ference between Martin and Mead po litically is that the former was in ear nest, while the latter is a candidate because Young is. ... WORLD WIDE TRUST. Theater Combine With, a Capital of $100,000,000 Planned. Chicago, July. 16. The Dally' News says that plans for the formation of a $100,000,000 trust in world's theaters became known today. - The International Theater trust, will, according . to. reports, not only Control the best theaters in Europe, but have under contraot the highest talent in legitimate and vaudeville fields. The attempted v formation of this new theatrical -undertaking is said to grow out of the-recent decision of the New York courts - that theaters and amusements are not "trade and com merce" and that therefore their com bination is not a violation of law. A. L. Erlanger is quoted as saying: "I will say that It Is true that we are about to make our interests co-extensive with Europe and America. I can see no reason ;why a homogenlety of management and ownership will not be highly beneficial to the public, th.3 players, the producers and the owners. Whether some of the principal amuse ment Interests of Europe and America can be welded Into one necessarily re quires a concert of thought and action on the part of those who are the lead ers abroad and here in that line. Our counsel sailed this morning on the Kron Frinx Wilhelm to investigate and dis cuss and determine legal plans. It will take sometime to work out the proposi tion." ... - Xew Seismograph Gets Busy. Salt Lake City, Utah, July 16. A dis tinct earthquake shock, lasting forabout one minute, was recorded- today on a seismograph recently Installed at the University of Utah.

Kennedy has arrived home safely. , What makes it remarkable in Mrs. Kennedy's case is. the fact that she Is 68 years old. She did not have a sick day all the time that she was gone. - , DEATHS AND FUNERALS. Miss Gertie Birdwhistle (colored), 21 years old,' died of consumption Sunday mornlng.at the home of her parents, 310 West First street. The funeral was hr-Id this afternoon at two o'clock from the church, corner of Norris and Harrison streets .and. the burial was in Topeka cemetery. ' ' ' ' . ' .-'A "Xew Kind to Hini. "Years and years ago, when I was a bad" man," said the reformer, "I was knocking about the state of Kansas and heard, of a wealthy farmer, who always kept his money In his house. Jt was in. my line of business to re lieve him of it. I spent a month pre paring the plant and then started out tt do business. On the way to the farmer'3 I held up a traveler and took $00 off of him. An hour later I had effected entrance into the house and was spooking about When some one suddenly grabbed me, and two min utes later I was bound hand and foot. It was the old farmer himself that got me, and after he had looked me over he said: "My son. this is bad business. "I was driven to it by poverty," I replied. "You should have depended upon the Lord to see you through. I am afraid you have little reverence for Christianity, and I shall pray with you." , Thereuoon he knalt beside me and held forth two mortal hours without a break. When he finally let up he asked me If I felt as sinful as before. I gladly replied that I didn't, where upon he proceeded to go through me and rob me clear down to the key of my trunk. . When he had finished he unbound me and said: "I am glad you came. I think I have done you good. In fact, if you will come back a second time I bei lleve you will see your way clear to becoming one of us." : "He had 1360 of my money, but I never went back for it. I have often wondered over the affair, however. I thought I knew all kinds of religions by name, at least, but one that per mltted a man to pray over a robber for two hours -and then do him out of; his last copper was a new one on me.' M. Quad.
