Considerable consternation has been
caused among tbe anti-prohibition
class of our citizens tbe past fw days
by a court of inquisition set up by
county attorney C D. Ashley and his
deputy Sam'l H. Smith before which
a number of Baxter citizens have been
called to testify with regard to their
knowledge of intoxicating liquors be
ing sold in this city. We understand
Mr. Ashley has conducted similar ex
aminations recently iu Weir City and
Galena. Tbe purpose is to indict vio
lators of tbe prohibitory law of Kan
sas for trial in tbe district court.
County Attorney Ashley is proceed
ing under paragraph 2543 of the gen
eral statutes of 1889 which make it
hi duty, when notified of a violation
of the law, to inquire into the fa:ts by
issuing a subpeeua for such persons a
he may believe have any knowledge
of such violation to appear before him
to testify. Tbe testimony shall be re
duced to writing and signed by the
witness as in taking depositions In
civil cases. If the testimony shall
disclose tbe fsct that au offense has
been committed tbe county attorney
shall file such statement and his com
plaint in a court of competent juris
diction, whereupon a warrant shall is
sue for the arrest of tbe persons named
in such information, aud shall com
mand the officer to seize any and all
intoxicating liquors, bottles, etc, in
D08se88ion of such nerson and safely
keep the same subject to tbe order of
tne court ; u tne person be convicted
then tbe court sbsll order, besides the
other penalties prescribed, thst the said
officers shall publicly destroy all such
roperty used and employed for such
llegal purpose. Upon conviction tbe i
smallest penalty that can be assessed is
a fine of $100 and thirty days im
prisonment in the county jail upon
each count.
Up to Thursday evening thirty-six
witnesses had been examined includ
ing a number of persons who come
under the head of "leading citizens."
The testimony taken is of course not
to be made public yet, but we under
stand from seversl of the parties "who
have been there" that some evidence
of a yery damaging character was
given, in consequence of which there
have been several sudden departures
oT persons doubtless more or less in
terested since Tuesday last.
The anti-probibitionista naturally
censure Mr. Ashley quite strongly for
his action In tbe matter, but If they
will take the trouble te read the law
they will see that It is his duty, and
the'law says he shall do this whenever
violations of the law are brought to
his notice. Tbe wsy to renedy the
trouble is not by blaming the proper
officers for enforcing the law, but by
removing the law if it be obnoxious.
So long as it remains in effect we ssy
enforce it tbe same as other laws, then
its obnoxious psrts will be the more
apparent and a remedy more easily
suggested or secured.
The examinations cannot but result
in a large amount of bitterness and
ill feeling between the temperance and
anti-prohibition classes here, whether
any convictions result or not, but by a
strict observance of the law on the
pert of everyone all of it might have
been avoided.
Seneca is probably on the eve of a
grand mineral boom. Tbe prospecting
which has resulted In the recent rich
finds there was begun in June, 1888,
on a small scale. Abundant evidences
of good mineral were found, but a
Isck of capital and confidence kept the
work back and little was developed
until recently. As is tbe case here the
water was heavy and obstacles many,
but by steady, persistent effort for
nearly two years they have succeeded
In bringing to view an almost solid
face of mineral teoHo fifteen feet deep,
while the body of mineral in the bot
tom of the shaft indicates thst the bot
tom of tbe body hss not yet been
reached. They are now blasting cut
great bodies of zino and lead ore and
piling it op around the shaft A
three-year lease on the ten acres con
taining this shaft was recently sold for
$2,500. We give the above facte for
tbe purpose of showing that our own
prospect shafts and those pot down
aeveral years ago have exhibited as
good prospects as did the Seneca shaft
and there is no good reason or way of
proving that we cannot also find min
eral in paying quantities when the
proper depth baa been reached.

B. F. Bbowx, Pres.
The directors of the butter and
cheese factory met last Saturday as
per announcement. R. H. Talbot was
chosen president pro tern and J. II.
Ballard secretary. Tbe committee on
by-laws made a satisfactory report
which the directors decided to submit
for the approval of tbe stockholders at
a meeting to be held Saturday, If arch
15. A committee was appointed to
see that tbe work upon the building is
properly done, after which the meet
ing adjourned to March 15, at 2
In our issue of Feb. 22 we published
an item to the effect tbat R. J. Down-.
ing bad been expelled from the Baptist
church of this city. Tbe item was
dictated in our office by W. U. Mead
and we very thoughtlessly gave it
place in our columns without asking
other members of tbe church as to its
truth. Since tbat time we have
learned that less than half a dozen
members of tbe church were present
at the meeting aud that some of then
wanted to defer action until ilr.
Downing could be heard in hit ewv
bebair, as be wss men anseni irom
the city, but as Mr. Mead wanted the
action taken then and bad a majority
on bis side at that time it was don.
Mr. Downing hss since returned andt
asserts that be severed bis connection
with the church several months be
fore this meeting wss held and was
not a member of it at tbat time. We
are also informed by other parties that
the above is true, and that Mr. Down
ing has for months been solelyengag
ed in the practice of law. We have
no desire to reflect npon tbe character
of anyone by the publication of state
ments not fully warranted by ract
and make this additional atatemeut
not at the suggestion of Mr. Downing,
but because we believe that if be had
been given a hearing the result would
have been different.
L.D. Brewster set tbe two eneines
and pomps In motion at tbe Spring
Branch shaft just after noon Thursday.
They worked like a charm together
for a few hours and tnen sometnmg
went wrong with tbe first pump snd
it had to be pulled oot, as has so onea
been the case before. As we go to
press the workmen are again about
ready to begin pumping.
