The case of the Board of County Com missioners vs. it. o. uumore, et.ai- or the famous Santa Fe bond suit, is set for trial Friday, March IS. The deposition taiJ! had better be starting up. Now that the temperance question is settled, how would it do to make the cow Dusiness an issue ai our spring elections T It is about time, we think, Emporia was having some shade trees. John Trump, former agent at this place of the Leavenworth Bottling company, has received an appointment as messen- ger for the Adams express, on the Santa Fe, between Kansas City and Pueblo.

Council Grove Republican: Em poria has closed her saloons, and a gang of idle bummers are now hanging about the town predicting the most dire consequences to its business interests. It will be a revelation to most sensiblo people to know that dram drinking is inseparable from business success, and that the saloon keeper is the "handmaid" of prosperity I Quite a number of the school board were present at the meeting of the Young Men's Deballn club Monday evenicg, to hear the discussion of the vital question : Resolved, That the temperance legisla tion of Kansas in its present form is productive of more evil than good." The prohibitionists will lie gratified to learu that the advocates of the amendment came out ahead. A good many persons have registered within the past few days, but the bulk of the .voters of the city have not yet at tended to this duty. The books will be open at the office of City Clerk Forde till the 27lh, and as a failure to regis ter is a forfeiture of the right to vote at the spring election, there should be no further delay on the part of our citizens in attending to this matter. Rawlings Gatewood filed a complaint Saturday against J. I Mayes for selling liquor without a license, and upon a hearing before Police Judge Bacheller, the accused was fined $45 and costs.

"The Chimes of Normandy," which will be given by the musical union on next Tuesday evening, will prove worthy of the moat liberal patronage.

The opera has been thoroughly rehearsed and will be put on in a shape that will render it well worth seeing and hearing. i Canton (Ohio) Repository: The Grand Army Band acknowledge with thanks the receipt of a substantial remembrance, in the shape of complete parts for full band ot the new "Emporia Quickstep," from Mr. Alex Butts, formerly ot the Re pository. This excellent piece of music, which is already a prime favorite with the band, was composed by Prof. Pette, of Emporia, Kansas, where Mr. Butts is now located, and both the composition and fine arrangement show him to pos sess unusually good musical talent. The special committee of the South Kansas Conference, to whom was refer, red the case of Elder Mitchell, has found him guilty of a number of the charges preferred against him, and he has been suspended from the ministry for the period of one year. This verdict, we feel warranted in saying, will be unanimously endorsed by every person who ever heard the Elder make a stump speech. He is entirely too much of a success as a political demagogue to squander his distinctive talents in that direction in the pulpit. The western division of Adam's ex. press.

No damage is ap prehended at present, and it U not true that Alburquerqe is subject to overflows. There is a large force of men which is increased almost weekly by forces from Leadville and Denver, engaged at present in the construction of a grade between South Arkansas and Gunnison City, and when it is completed It may be looked upon as the foremost accom plishment of railroad enterprise.

The impression made upon the Emporia people by Mr. Ilendy is of the most favorable character, and his permanent identification with the cause of Christ in this city may be regarded as a source of congratulation among its christian people of all sects. Council Notes. The gas issue has been staved off till next Monday evening, when a special session will be held to consider that matter. The committee on streets and alleys was instructed to have dug a drain from the hotel Coolidge, on Sixth avenue, to carry off surplus water. The city clerk signifies bis willing ness to make affidavit to the fact that a quorum of members was present at the council meeting last evening. The slick looking gas agents who were on deck to capture the council have let go to spit on their hands for the final tussel next Monday night. The mayor vetoed the ordinance pass ed by the council fixing hall license at $25 whlcb leaves the old ordinance, establishing the rate at $40 still in force. A petition from the saloonists asking permission to continue their business till the first of May, in consideration of a li cense or fine, as the council might dic tate, was unanimously sat down upon. AROUND TOWN. Another dry restaurant was opened up Friday in the St. Albany hotel on south Commercial street. The postmaster at this place has re ceived a number of new boxes which will be placed at the disposal of the pub lic in a few days. A Lively Runaway Occurred in Emporia Friday after noon, and for about five minutes it seemed as if everything in the shape of horseflesh in the town was on a general rampage. The cause of the iniscb ief was a coal team, which ran away from near the round house, and In their headlong ourae, uprooted three hitching posts on Fifth avenue, ran into and mashed a wagon belonging to James McIIardy, cut loose a mule team that joined in the circus, and after setting a number of saddle horses at liberty. Anally brought up at the meat market of Herman & Atyo, hich they were just in the act of going through, when one of the horses fell down and the team was captured. For tunately, no one was injured, and the damage is comparatively light. DMtk of an Old Citizen. Mr. Frank Schmidling. who died in this city Tuesday, was one of our old est settlers. '- He took a claim on the Cottonwood, several miles above Empo ria, as early as 1857 or 1S53. He after wards moved to the city and kept the old Enrporia bouse. He was engaged in various enterprises at different times. A few years ago his health failed, and he spent about a year at Hot Springs, Ar kansas. . Afterwards he went to the springs in New Mexico. He gradually grew worse until the result announced yesterday. In 1860 he married Maria Bund rem in thia city, who sur vives him together with a family of several children, one of whom is grown. Mr. Schmidling possessed many-good qualities of heart which will be remem bered by his friends, while his faults will be buried with htm in the tomb. The funeral took place Wednesday at 2 o'clock, and was conducted under the auspices of the Masonic fraternity, of which order be waa a member. A Btaadaoaae Ianproveensmt. The necessities of the case demanded the employment of aa efficient corps of workmen at .the post office Sunday, who spent the Sabbath in effecting a work which will contribute very largely to the convenience of the people of this city. ..The result is the addi tion to the postal facilities of the town, of over two hundred hand some bronze Yale lock boxes which have been procured by the postmaster at an expense of about $000, and are now ready for use. A change in the entire arrangement of the boxes largely in creases the superficial dimensions of the outside exposure and affords better ac commodations and more room for the clerks inside. The enterprise which gives Emporia one ot the beat post of fices in the state is to be commended, and the public have already shown their appreciation of the postmaster's efforts in this direction by making a general rush for the new boxes.

FIFTH DAY. Wellington, Kan., March 7, 1881. Yesterday (Sunday) was a good day. Bishop Hurst preached very acceptably in the mom in? at the M. E. church. Wellington is not very well supplied with churches. We have a' fine brick church and the Presbyterians also have a good church. The Baptists worship in a halL All these preaching places were occupied yesterday. It is justice to say the finest choir I have seen in Kansas they have in the M. E. church here. It is led by Mr. G.

The south Methodist conference has decided to hold its anuual meeting at Burling ton, Cofiee county. Large numbers of people from the surrounding country and adjoining towns came in to hear liisuop llurst preach yesterday. The trials of Rev. D. P. Mitchell and Rev. Allen Buckner began Saturday at 2 p. m. The case against Buckner was dis missed because or forty-nine discrepan cies between the original charges and the copy furnished the defendant. Mitchell's trial is still in progress. The defense was offered to-night It is not probable that a verdict will be given to-morrow. Five hundred and thirty five dollars were raised in the conference this evening to pay off a mortgage on the farm belonging to the widow of Rev. Sheldon Parker, of Elk City. The con- j ference will probably adjourn to-morrow noon. PHOCEKDINOS OF THE CLOSING DAY OF THE 8ESSION. Wellington, March 8. The South Kansas Conference of the M. E. church closed its annual session to-day at 3 p. ro. The case of especial interest was the hearing of the report of the select com mittee of fifteen in the case of D. P. Mitchell. A scaled report was put in the hands of the secretary, which, at about 11 was opened and read. Some of the charges were sustained and some not sustained and the verdict was "He shall be suspended from the work of the min istry for one year." From' the decision he announced that he should take an ap peal. The status of the case is this : It has been tried by a select committee of fifteen careful men of the conference. Their report to the conference is final so far as the conference action is con cerned. An appeal goes to a court of appeals, composed of the "triers of appeals" from three conferences, such as shall be designated . by the bishop. These triers of appeals are seven in number in each conference. At this court one of the bishops shall preside. The case will go to that court, probably, in a few weeks. An interesting feature of the meeting of conference on Monday evening was, as is usual at conferences, a collection. It was announced that the farm of wid ow Parker, widow of the late S. Par ker, superannuate of the confer ence, waa encumbered to the amount of $500, due about a year hence. A subscription and collection was taken amounting to $533, and a committee ap pointed to take charge of all funds, and on lifting of mortgage to put it in hands of Preachers' Aid society, so that it might be ever safe from encumberance. Bishop Hurst has won the love and es teem of all by bis kindly ways and la bors among us. I append a list of appointments of Em poria district, and in addition announce that your old friend, B. Kelly, goes to Wichita. EMPORIA DISTRICT. C. R. Rice, P. E. Emporia, J. Kirby. Americus, J. A. Barker. Burlingtob, H. W. Chaffee. Colony, N. F. Tipton. Climas, G. W. White. Dunlap, to be supplied.

Montreal Star: The Original New Or leans Minstrels drew a large attendance last night and made themselves favorites with all before they bad exhausted the long and choice program. The first part included an introductory from "La Fille de Madame Angot," by the company's orchestra, followed by selections render ed by the Clipper Quartette in a style at tained by traveling minstrels. L. P. Benjamin, the "Wizard Cornetist," in traduced a number of his famous E fiat specialties, the principal one being a ren dering of "Coming Thro' the Rye," by the cornet, without the valves, one of his hands being in bis pocket and the- other simply holding up the end of his Instru ment. The witticisms, songs, clog danc ing, Ac, were remarkably good, the jokes free from the slightest approach to vulgarity, and consequently everything passed off as successfully aa could be desired. Oar Manlclpal Indebtedness. Editors News: In last week's Sen tinel there appeared an article which spoke of our city's indebtedness as in creasing at the rate of $1,000 per month without any corresponding revenue with which to meet this indebtedness. This statement was also copied in an article written, by C N. Sterry in last Satur day's News. Both statements are cal culated to mislead the public, and as chairman of the committee on ways and means, I thought it perhaps devolved on me to give the people an itemized state ment of the debt of the city and her re sources to meet the same. The present debt of the city is $100,- 955.30, and is divided as follows: Normal School bo&rtliag bouse bonds. 6 000 00 improvement ikhiu . . . Funding scrip bond x,auo ou 57 DO 6.4S0 (M 10.000 00 4.0U0 80 8,000 00 Normal baildiaff bond . Fire aparatus bonds Mining bonds Tout 3UT 95 The above bonds draw 10 per cent, in terest, making a yearly interest of $3, 220.79. In addition to the above there are Nor mal building bonds, $5,800; water works bonds, $50,000 ; water works bonds, $15,000; total, $70,800. These bonds draw 7 per cent-interest, or an an nual interest of $4,956. There is also outstanding scrip as follows": On gen eral fund, $4,475.39: on water works fund, $2,472.05; total. $6,947.44. A portion only of this scrip is drawing interest, but for the purpose of this article and to be on the safe side we will figure that it all draws 7 per cent, interest or an annual interest of $626.31. The regular running expenses of the city tor one month are divided about as follows : For marshal S40 09 Si CO Police Teamster Street commissioner aad superintend ant of water works City clerk SO 00 83 83 w ater wrkt engineer . 108 83 . IS BO S 00 . its 00 . 1U 00 . 7 00 S 00 . as oo . 490 is 5,953 91 City attorney City printing, about .. uiu mi water worn .. Lixbt (or street lamua. Feed for city teams... City electors, about... riremen at fires Expense for one month . For twelve months This makes a grand total of $14,130.- 71 as expenses of the city for one year. Now, as to the city's corresponding re sources to pay these expenses: The amount of taxablo property for 1880 was, $897,423.23 and the tax levy was 19 mills, which raised a fund of $17,- 499.85. We will receive from the water works about $1,500; from rents of city buildings about $480; from Strickler's canal about $900; total resources, $20, 379.85. Leaving a surplus for expenses of lawsuits, culverts, etc., and paying off outstanding scrip of $0,249.14. The large amount of outstanding scrip, is largely accounted for, from the fact that the council for 1879, made no tax levy for the general fund and made two large contracts for the council of 1880 to pay for. Namely: For hose and hose carts, $1,884; for Strickler's canal about $900; total, $2, 84. Since writing the above, the city treasurer informs me he has paid since his last report, scrip on the general fund, $3,100; on water works fund, $1,- 640. Another item which makes the ex penses of the city seem larger than they really are, is that all special side walks built by the city, are charged up to ex pense account, but all of this is paid back when the taxes are collected. Yours truly, . I. D. Fox. Our City Schools. This week closes the sixth month of our city schools. During tho whole year the schools have been crowded, and there seems to be no relaxing as yet. With few exceptions all the pupils are inter ested in their work, and everything bids fair to place our schools on a higher plain. We are anxiously waiting for our new building and hope that nothing will stand in the way of its thorough and rapid completion. There are exist ing in our schools two or three elements which every true patron should assist in eradicating. The' first we will mention is the common use of profane and vul gar language ; the second is the use of to bacco, and the third is the playing of marbles "for keeps." In all these the teachers are not qualified to give in struction, and persons who indulge in these practices are not fit companions. We hope by patient perseverance to rid our schools either of all these or the per sons who practice them. We have great need in our city of some reliable time, and we hope soon to have this remedied by the bell which will be placed upon our new building, and which will be shipped from Baltimore this week. We do not expect to stop with simply a bell, but will have a clock in the tower which can be felied upon for accurate time. Funds are too low to purchase both, but we hope to make a raise. Mrs. Wharton, who has served in our schools for some years and bo efficiently, tendered her resignation to the board last night at their regular meeting. And while they were sorry that any change should be made, it was accepted as it is understood that Professor O. B. Wharton, with his family, will soon remove west of town on his farm. Miss Sarah Evans was elected to fill the vacancy and will enter upon her duties next week. Miss Evans comes well recommended and we trust she will at least make good our loss. An 'arbor day" will soon be appointed by which the school grounds will be set out with trees. The X.yon County Teacher's Association Met at the usual time and place, on Saturday, March 5th. The meeting was called to order by Supt. Wharton. The first exercise was an excellent paper, read by Prof. Fowler, who has consented, at the request of the members of the asso ciation, to allow it to be published in The News. It will probably appear in the next week's issue. Subject, "Hones ty in the School room." The "Class drill in primary arithme tic," by Miss Bartholomew, was well conducted, and no doubt suggested many valuable hints to all present. The teach er had a class of her own pupils from the primary grade of the city schools. In the discussion, the practical features of G rube's method were brought forth ; and as no text books are used in this grade, as well as in higher ones, a re quest was made by Rev. Lotz, that the advisability of discarding the use of text books be thoroughly discussed at a subsequent meeting. This will likely be one of the topics for April 2d. Following the discussion, a talk on "school houses and school grounds" was given by Robt Milliken; after which the association proceeded to elect ofQc- era Tor the ensuing year, the favored ones being: president, O. B. Wharton; vice president, Daniel Dryer; secretary, Mr. Chance. By a vote of the associ ation, the president was instructed to appoint a committee of three to make out a program for a general arbor day throughout the country; also, was re quested to appoint a committee to pre pare a new course of study for the schools of the county. ' - The attendance was good, and the meeting a profitable one. . Adjourned to April 2nd. M. C. Hodge. Sterry a Ieone classn . Eos. News: The thanks of the public are due Mr. Sterry for his communi cation in Saturday's News, on the duties and responsibilities of the office of the mayor, and the comparative unfit ness of either of the present candidates for that position. Mr. Sterry, being neither citizen nor tax-payer, renders his position entirely disinterested, and the fact that he signed the petition re questing one of the present aspirants to be a candidate and promising him his hearty support, renders bis duty in the present instance very difficult to perform. The public should con gratulate Mr. Sterry upon being superior to the trammels of con sistency and bis previous record upon thia question, aad in affirming plainly that neither Saul nor David should rule over this people, the prophet Samuel could not have done bis duty better, as far as be goes- But Mr. Sterry leaves his work only half done. Having with iconoclastic recklessness destroyed our idols, and shown us the clay of their composition, be should point us to the living God, and being himself ineligi ble, bis modesty should not prevent him from naming his second choice. The people wait breathlessly to register his edict. Let him sjeak at once and name our next mayor. Voter and Taxpayer. Conncil Proceedings. Cocncii, Chambers, March 7th, 1881. Regular meeting. Present -Mayor Gilmore, Messrs. Taylor, Fox, Louis Thatcher, Theis, Watson. Minutes of meetings from January 3rd inclusive to date, read and approved. The fallowing veto of the Mayor of the ordinance fixing license tax on pub lic halls at $25 per year was read: To the Hon. Council of tlu- eity of M, mporta: Gentlemex: Your ordinance fixing a license upon public halls is hereby returned without my signature and with my reasons therefor herein presented. in my juctgemnt, the ordinance now in force is not unreasonable so far as the amount fixed is concerned and the amount therein stated was, to the best of my recollection, at the time said or dinance was passed, satisfactory to the owners of public halls in the city. rrevious to tne aaoption or saia ordi nance the whole subject matter was placed in the hands of the mayor, to charge such fee upon each performance as his judgment dictated. Under that ordinance there was collected for the benefit of and placed in the city treasury for the year immediately preceding the adoption of the ordinance now in force, the sum of $79 for thirty-six separate performances, not including matinees. The average for each performance was less than $220 in view of what other persons requiring a license have to give, not a very large sum for traveling show men, who pay no other city taxes to have to pay. The original owner of Bancroft hall was perfectly willing to pay the sum of $25.00 per year as a license fee, and that. too, wnen the city bad less than Z.5UU inhabitants, and it does seem to me that when we have about 6,000 inhabitants within our borders that to double said license fee would be eminently just and in no sense unreasonable.

Belief for the Destitute. Topeka Commonwealth: Commis sioner Holloway has taken his coat off and is at work purchasing and shipping supplies for the destitute on the frontier. This week Mr. Holloway will ship several car loads of supplies over the Union Pacific railroad to Grainfield. Wa-Keeney and other points. The sup plies consist of meal, flour, bacon and beans. Mr. Holloway has succeeded in getting free transportation for all sup plies over the Union Pacific and Santa Fe railroads, and expects to obtain the same over the Central Branch, being in communication with the Gould man agement for that purpose. The petitions that are daily reaching Mr. Holloway from settlers on the ex treme frontier, representing their criti cal condition and need of immediate re lief, are most touching. Commissioner Holloway is an energetic gentleman, and now that the legislature has opened the way for action, not a day will be lost. Mr. Holloway will leave Topeka in a few days for the frontier, to oversee the disbursement of supplies, as the law provides, and to make a tour of observa tion oyer the territory so sadly in need of aid.

Portland Sunday Times: A good-sized audience greeted the Original New Or-1 leans Minstrel j at Portland Theatre last evening, and we venture to say that ev. ery one present was fully satisfied with the entertainment presented. With the continuous string of puns, jokes and grimances that Charley Goodyear pre. sented, tbe 'fine singing of tbe Clip per Quartette and tbe first class dancing of Welby and Pearl, tbe entire audience were kept in the best of bomor through out tbe evening. But the' chief feature of the performance was tbe cornet solo by Prof. L. P. Benjamin, who accom plished the wonderful feat of reaching five Cs while playing "Coming Thro' tbe Rye," and without using the valves or any artificial appliances. We heartily commend this company as being flrst class and deserving a liberal patronage wherever they may go. Don't trifle with a severe conch or cold.
