i-VVashinpton, U. ".. Jan. 29. The
Kansas-Nel'raiika hill, passed sixty
tWo years ago this week, January 29.
1S54, was tho art of congress by which
the territories of Kansas and Nebras
ka were organized.
.It turned out to be one of the
most important acts in the legisla
tive history of the United States. It
precipitated the final phases of the
slavery struscle which resulted in the
Civil war. It led to the reoganiza
ti6n of political parties. It started a
renewal of the contest between the
North and the South over a question
which had been regarded as settled
for many years, at least by the com
promise measures of 12U and 1850. It
stirred the passions of the people of
both sections, save rise to bitter and
protracted controversies, both in and
out of congress, and doubtless con
siderably hastened a resort to arms.
The bill sealed the doom of the
Whiff party: it led to the formation
of !the Republican party; it raised Lin
coln and cave a bent to his great po
"With or Without Slavery."
Upon the admission of Missouri into
the Union, in 1821. the vast region ly

who was chairman of Trie senate com
mittee on territories, reported a bill,
accompanied by an explanatory re
port, which prescribed that territories
when admitted as states "shall be re
envied into the Union with tr without
Slavery, as their constitution may pre
scribe at the time of their admission,"
and further, "all questions pertaining
to slavery are to be left to the decision
of the people residing therein, by their
appropriate representatives, to be
chosen by thrm fnr that purpose."
The bill, however, was rearranged
through an amendment suggested by
Senator Dixon of Kentucky, and Sen
ator Douglas reported it, in its final
shape, the KansasXebraska bill, Sun
day, 62 years ago.
Precipitated Hot Debate.
This new bill provided that the ter
ritory was to be divided into two parts,
to be called Kansas and Nebraska,
and stated specifically that the slav
ery restriction of the Missouri com
promise, "being inconsistent with thv.
theory of non-intervention by con
gress with slavery in the states and
territories, as recognized by the legis
lation of 1850, commonly called the
compromise measure, is hereby de
clared inoperative and void, it being
the true intent and meaning of thiss
act not to legislate slavery into any
territory or state, nor to exclude it
therefrom, but to leave the people
therof perfectly free to form and reg
ulate their domestic institutions in
their own way, subject only to the
constitution of the United States.'
The bill occasioned a prolonged and
acrimonious debate, and finally pass
ed the senate on March 4, despite the
vigorous opposition of Senators Sum
ner, Chase, Kvorett, Wade, Hell ami
Seward. The debate in the house was
continued until May 8, when it passed
by a bare majority of thirteen votes.
The bill became a law by President
Pierce's signature on May 30, 1854.
HER IDENTITY LOST
Rich Woman Fonnd in Chicago
a Baffling Mystery.
Fortune Found Hidden in Her
Chicago. Jan. 29. Out at the Psy
chopathic hospital, silent and appar
ently unseeing, sits a little, gray-haired
old woman in a shabby dress, who
for days has puzzled the shrewd po
licemen, the tactful police matrons
and the learned alienists. They sus
pect that she is mad, for she cannot
tell whence she came, whither she is
going, nor why she is In Chicago.
Neither can she tell where she live3,
though she does say her home is at
"Navasata, Tex.," a place unknown to
the postal guide or the railroad direc
tories. She was puzzling enough through
out the three days she has been un
der observation, but interest was
greatly heightened in her today when
attendants found a small fortune
stitched into her shabby clothing.
Bonds. interest coupons, treasury
notes, diamonds and even silver money
were sowed into every garment she
wore, to a total of J13.461.81.
From the bonds and coupons it is
inferred that her name is Mrs. Nana
V. Haynes. The bonds were issued by
the Continental bank of San Francis
co. She has a railroad ticket reading
from Santa Rosa, Cal., to Richmond,
From Santa Rosa it was learned
that a woman answering the descrip
tion of the one in the hospital led a
lonely and mysterious life in a small
hotel there from December 17 to Jan
uary 20. She lived alone and cooked
her own meals.
She called herself "Mrs. Jim Smith"
but when she left she signed her rail
road ticket "Duchess Cromwell." She
bought a ticket via San Francisco,
Chicago and Washington to Fichmond
and amazed the ticket agent by offer
ing a $500 bill in payment. She opur
ed the change into a paper bag with
much other money, and took a Santa
Fe train due in Chicago on Tuesday.
Telegrams to San Francisco, Rich
mond and a number of Texas cities
whose names resembles "Navasata"
have brought no indentification.
DOUBLES IN A YEAR
iaJn Inspection for 1915 Brings $73,
115.10 Into the Treasury.
Grain inspection in Kansas by state
inspectors has more than doubled in
the past year and the department of
inspection and weighing has a balance
of $33,325 to its account in the state
treasurer's office, according to the
annual report for 1915.
The report shows that in 1915, 89.
514 cars of grain were inspected as
compared with 44,607 in 1914 and the
fees collected in 1915 amounted to
573,115.10. while In 1914 the amount
was $35,796.12. The number of cars
weighed in 1915 were 35,781 and 7,
859 in 1914.
Two years ago there were eighteen
persons on the pay roll of the de
partment, the report showed, and now
the pay roll has reached eighty-five.
The report further states that wages
have been increased ten per cent and
that $3,000 worth of equipment has

Anthracite men are hoping they will
not only receive an advance in wages
but will be able to negotiate an agree

Leaders from the hard coal fields here
say they have information that if con
cessions are made by the anthracite
operators the employers will demand
a five year contract. The miners' or
ganization is opposed to a long term
contract. With the wage scale ques
tion out of the way the convention to
day took up matters affecting the or
ganization. Final adjournment will
probably be reached about Tuesday.
In Wales wages of farm laborers
have risen 20 per cent this year.

ROUP OF COUNTY
Kensington People Boast of
Banner Corn Crop.
Signs of Prosperity Are in Evi
SHORTAGE OF GRAIN GARS
50,000 Bushels Corn Held in
Agents Cannot Supply Demand
Kensington. Jan. 29. To live and
do business in the banner corn coun
ty of the state for 1915 is an honor
the people of Kensington point to with
pride. In round bushels the farmers
of Smit h county raised about eight
million bushels. And Kensington is
in this county. On account of the
scarcity of grain cars, it is estimated
there are close to 50,000 bushels of
corn in the three elevators, besides
that stored in the cribs on the town
site. K. C. Wolfe, who operates one
of the elevators hps about 25,000
bushels of corn and 15,000 bushels of
wheat in sight and no cars on hand to
ship it out. It was a Smith county
old settler, who has retired from the
farm, who said: "The farmers of
Smith county are making more money
and have been for several years than
any class of business men in the
130 Loads of Grain Daily.
Kensington is a big market center
for the farmers of the section of coun
try tributary. A record of one day's
marketing shows that the three ele
vators and flouring mill handled 130
loads of grain for the farmers. The
same day two carloads of stock and
a carload o poultry was marketed by
the farmers. Besides, the cream and
eggs will run up into many dollars.
His Woman Bank Head.
There are two banks here, the Citi
zens State and the First National, with
aggregate deposits o J391.853.22, ac
cording to the last printed statements.
In the State Journal a few days ago
there was a statement made that in
the oldest established bank in Raw
lins county, the Rawlins County State
bank, of Atwood. had a woman for
president. The First National bank
of Kensington has a woman president,
Mrs. Ruth G. Ahiborn. She is atten
tive to the affairs of the bank. So
far as the business and stockholders
are concerned, she is a valuable annex
to the bank. This bank has recently
installed fine new marble fixtures and
a tile floor. It is now among the best
equipped and most modern banking
institutions in northwest Kansas.
Can't Supply Auto Demand.
Here in Kensington and in the coun
try adjoining every family who wants
an automobile buys one. There are
'three garages in the town, and it is
said more than 150 auto3 were sold
,in 1915. More could have been dis
posed of only for the shortage of the
cars. A. E. Crosby was the latest one
to engage in the work of operating a
i garage and supplying the people with
cars. Since August, last, he has sold
about 50 Fords.
Kensington has a modern electric
lighting system and a fine water plant.
The town has good brick and cement
In the last year a dozen or more
residences have been erected. This
year promises still greater building
improvements in town, with the
chances of some brick business
S houses and hotel being pushed to com
; pletion. It will be a Dusy year for
j the farmers, and the prediction is
mnde that the country will see one of
the biggest building years known for
Prosperity shows up everywhere in
Kensington. In her banks, in the
sever'., mercantile houses, in her mill

tronized, all show thrift and prosperi
ty. And there is every indication of
another big crop harvest.

MOLES DO XOT EAT CORN.
Mlee Y the Iuinagc; Tlien Farmers
ISiuuie tlie Moles.
Manhattan, Kan., Jan. 29. Moles
eat worms, not corn, according to Dr.
R. K. Nabours, zoologist of the Kan
sas State Agricultural college
Because moles make their runs
along rows of freshly planted corn
and then the corn fails to come up, it
is me common belief that the moles
have eaten it and are therefore re
sponsible for the poor stand of corn.
The immediate responsibility. Doctor
isaDours points out, rests on the
mole's gue&ts meadow mice, white
footed field mice, and common house
mice. The mole runs furnish con
cealment and lines of traffic for these
small animals which cannot dig run
ways or their own. It has been found
by experiment that moles eat earth
worms, grubs, insects, and other ani
mal life but vegetable matter scarce
ly at all. To avoid the damage it is
easier to kill tho moles than the mice.
and thus destroy Ihe lines of traffic
trapping is the best means of ex
termination. Additional information
is obtainable from the zoology depart
ment of the college.

First End Only Original Comic

Ross Opposed English Faction
and Won the Natives.
Cyclones and Sinking of Eradcn
the Only Excitement.
London. Jan. 29. The news that
King Boss of the Cocos Islands has
laid him down in the shade of the
palms and died was cabled here re
cently. The brief message rings down
the curtain upon the last of the first
ruler of the real, original comic op'.ra
kingdom the Land of Cocos wl .ch
lies upon the shimmering silver lap of
the South Seas, a diminutive emerald
world in a setting of pink coral reefs.
Andy Ross was a Scotch adventurer
who, after a roving youth, discovered
and decided to cast has lot as king
with the motley inhabitants of the lit
tle story book kingdom. From 1827
until his death he was the oddest king,
with the queerest subjects and the
most extraordinary domain in all the
world. His was a kingdom where the
arrival of Sinbad the Sailor, Alice in
Wonderland, Gulliver and the Boy
Who Could Not Learn To Shiver And
Shake would not have seemed unusual.
His was a kingdom that put Romance
into Real Life and Real Life in Ro
mance. The Cocos Islands is distinct
ly an O. Henry land, a place such as
Gilbert & Sullivan saw only in fancy,
a spot that a Robert Louis Stevenson
would be loth to leave.
Ross Faction Won.
Ross was king, court, government
and owner of this group of Indian
ocean isles, twenty in all, whose only
excitement in history occurred during
the present war the destruction of
the German cruiser Emden by the
Australian battleship Sydney, off the
King Ross was the third of his line.
In 1823, an English adventurer
named Alexander Hare settled in the
islands with a number of slaves given
him bv an Indian potentate. Two
years later, Ross, a Scotchman, redis
covered the islands and determined to
colonize them. He returned in 1827
with a party of Scotch and found
Hare in possession. The two factions
settled by dividing the islands equally.
Finally, however, the natives swore
allegiance to Ross and he and his
descendants have ruled their story
book kingdom ever since.
Interspersed with palm covered
atolls and flanked by reefs of pink
coral, the picturesque little group of
islands is more like a scene from a
musical comedy than anything else.
In 1856 the British government ex
tended protection to the Cocos. In
1885 parliament sent a commission to
investigate conditions there. When

sion on board steamed into the lagoon
