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.

Occurred in Emporia Friday after

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.

ASSOCIATED PBESS REPORT.
Wellington. Kas.. March 7. 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.

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.

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

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 :

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.

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.

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. Respectfully
yours, O. 8. Gilmore, Mayor.

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.
