MACKEY IS THERE Un ited States M arshal Arr ires in Washington. Declines to Discuss Question of His Successor. BENTON ALSO PRESENT Sixth District Statesman Sajs Taft Is Gaining. Also That Crops Are O. K. In Kansas. Washington, April 13. Otis L. Ben ton, a prominent banker of . Oberlin; William H. Mackey, United States mar shal of Kansas; and H. L. Thompson of Junction City, are in the city this week on trips mixed with business, politics and pleasure. Incidentally their presence around the corridors of con gress has added some special interest among the members of the Kansas delegation. Mr. Mackey declined to discuss the question of appointing a new marshal, declaring that he was here on official business only. Mr. Mackey's term ex pired last January, but since President Taft has not been able to settle the question of patronage distribution be tween Senators Curtis and Bristow, the matter of appointing a new marshal for Kansas has been laid aside indefinitely. In the meanwhile Mr. Mackey will hold on and draw salary regularly. He came to Washington in care of several insane persons who were placed in the gov ernment hospital for treatment. I Mr. Benton talked entertainingly on finance, crops and politics in Kansas. He raid that the banks of the state are in fine condition, and while loans are being made with great conservatism, yet money is plentiful for all legitimate business. "Crop conditions in Kansas have been irood for several years and recent boun tiful rains have put the growing wheal In fine condition and the ground is In splendid shape for spring seeding," he raid. In speaking of political conditions in Kansas, Mr. Benton said: "President Taft is growing in favor in the minds end hearts of the people. All recognize Jn him a wise, able, and honest presi dent, whose highest ambition is to serve his country faithfully and well. The president will receive the endorse ment of his party by renomination." Mr. Benton was a delegate from his Ftate to the Republican national con vention at Chicago which nominated Mr. Taft for president, and was presi dent of the Taft club of his county during the last campaign. . Mr. Benton and Mr. Thompson were presented to President Taft the other day by Senator Curtis. Somewhere in Washington, there is a Rad little man who owns a farm near Coffeyvllle, Kan. Jeremiah Quinn is sad for many reasons. A roll of bill?, legal tender for $2,700; a hungry hoj, and a long trip across the country are some of the reasons for the lack of gayety in Jeremiah's life. " t - It was only a week ago when Jere miah was a happy man. But that was before the episode which placed the blight on his happiness. He had plan ned to buy an automobile and a new calico dress for his wife, and with what was left over from his savings he would pay for decorations on the farm house. It was earless of Jeremiah to carry a roll of $2,700 in his hip pocket,' and especially when he went to feed the pigs. Fate was against him. In stooping over for a pail of milk and bran, his special fattener for the pork ers, the roll of bills dropped from his pocket before a big hog, whose doom was to have been sealed the next week. The hog was not to blame. He thought the greenbacks was some delicate greens brought to tickle his palate. He rushed to the roll, and in a few seconds rolled his eyes up at his master, thankfulness showing in every glance. The end of a hundred dollar bill hung from one of his tusks. The vision of the vanished automo ,bile came to Jeremiah when he saw that mutilated bill hanging from the hog's snout. No college sprinter ever, equaled his record run to the house for a killing knife. The hog gave a prolonged shriek, and the search for the bills was begun by Jeremiah. No macerating machine in the treasury department could have done a better Job than that hog. That is why Jeremiah Is In Wash ington without his customary smile.

Like one risen from the dead." Fheridan '. M. Justus walked into the home of .his father, S. J. Justus, here. In a cemetery in St. Joseph lies the body of a youth buried for that of young Justus. The body, was iden tified even to some peculiarity of the teeth. No clue has been found as to the name of tha dead boy, buried six months ago for young Justus. Justus, who is 17 years old, ran away last July from his home In Omaha. He went with a circus. In August a boy was killed and his body found badly mangled along the rail road track at Monisnee, Wis. The parents of Justus moved to St. Joseph. They learned of the death of the boy about the time the circus, with which young Justus connected himself, was at Monisnee. The father had the body exhumed. It was badly mangled. He identified the clothes and parts of the body. On account of the carelessness used In burying the body the elder Justus caused the ar rest of the undertaker and he ws heavily fined. The body was sealed in a metal bas ket and brought to St. Joseph for burial. Proof of death was made and insurance money colected on the boy's life. Then came a letter. It -was from Bulis Gap, Tex., and stated that young Justus wan alive and wanted to come home. The parents were startled. They replied and paid back the insur ance money. A month passed without hearing anything more. The parents again began to doubt. The suspense was ended, however, by young -Justus walking Into the home of his parents. He had received some hard bumte, he said, and had seen considerable of the world so much that he was sat isfield w-lth home. The only mystery remaining Is the identity of the young man buried for Justus. AMUSEMENTS. -A1 H. Wilson, the German dialect comedian, will present "A German Prince" at the Grand.

Practically every owner reports losses. Damage to grow ing flowers and plants was . evident, also. S. D. Flora, the weather man, says that all danger of killing frosts has passed. At least he says only eight bad ones have occurred after this date in the last 24 years. A. Beal, a wealthy stockman, who lives at Valencia, suffered severely from the storm.

Titus, city election commis sioner, Is of the opinion that this last election board was the best the city has hired in years. Despite this fact the citizens of the city would feel bet ter if voting machines were used. "Nothing doing" is the record of the present police force day after day. The former administration would have con sidered it a disgrace not to have some thing "always doing." Each method is claimed as proof that the town is clean and free from the criminal class. AFTER .

Lewis, state insurance commis sioner, does not believe that a mutual insurance company to write liability insurance under the workingmen's compensation law can be organized under the laws of Kansas.
