No council meeting Tuesday even ing for want of a quorum. Ouly a few days more in which to register. Books close next Friday. Got your seats at Tuttle's for the Wallack Tripologue entertainment at city hall to-night. Come out and hear the famous mu sical trio at the Presbyterian church next Monday evening. Baxter Springs is rarely favored with such a treat as the concert to be given by Josef Heine & Co. The weather cleaifed up Wednesday and there is some little hopo now that 'twill be summer bye and bye. "Artistic, amusing, extraordinary," is the way the concert is spoken of which is to be given Monday night. We are indebted to Mrs. II. M. East ley for- a most excellent orange brought from California by her son Albert Perry. The Austin shaft is over 80 feet deep and still going down. It is ratbor singular that the ground they are in is as dry as b bona. An interesting report of an inter view with Henry M. Stanley, the fam ous African explorer, will be found on the opposite side of this paper. Spring river was up about four feet Thursday night and on account of running the flour mill the electric light machinery could not be run. Rev. F. D. Pettit, tho singing evan gelist, has been holding a series of very interesting services at the city hall the past week. They have beeu fairly well attended. David Powell says he did not leave town last week to avoid Mr. Ashley. He says his boss told him he didn't have any farther use for him and so he went deck hunting. Rev. A. R. Miller left Monday for Emporia to attend the annual confer ence. Wo are told that for the first time iii several years the salary prom ised in this charge was paid iu full before ho left. Messrs. Alexander Warner and II. R. Crowell while out gunning for ducks a few days ago succeeded in capturing a very fine specimen of the grey eagle variety which measures six and a half feet from tip to tip. The press of other places speak very highly of Mr. Watty Wallack, the versatile comedian with the Wallack Tripologue Troupe, which will appear at the city hall this (Saturday) even ing. See program on fourth page. Tho recent discovery on the Moll tract at Galena of a large body of a substance resembling white lead is a great bonanza. Over 17,000 cubic feet of it has been uncovered. It contains 91.C6 per cent of pure jack (zinc) and is worth as much as first grade white lead. There will bo a meeting of the Or der of Select Friends Monday evening, March 17. Matters of importance in which all members are interested will be brought before the meeting. Re ports from the supreme treasurer will be read showing the financial conal tion of the order; also the growth of the order throughout the state. Prof. E. F. Lyman of the art school srave this omce a pleasant cau rues day. He has been having qnite a se vere tussle witn rheumatism inaucea by the grippe. He says the business of the art school has been good dur ing the past year and is steadily in creasing. Considering the many dis advantages Mr. Lyman aud family have had to contend with here this is certainly a gratifying report L. D. Brewster is now steadily forg ing ahead with his work of putting the Spring Branch shaft down to. 100 feet, having taken out several feet of dirt the past week. The task is a great one and even with the two nine inch pumps in continuous motion the vol ume of water is with difficulty kept out of the way and the two pumps in the shaft leave hardly' sufficient room for advantageous work in drilling a shooting. Some shines of boWead and jack are fonnd and thercucations in this regard are not discouraging. Attontloa, XM-Saliin mnd laitora.

The following letter received Wedncs day by Mr. Crowell fully cxplalus it self so far as H is concerned, but a good many Baxterites will probably want more light on the matter: Kansas Citt. Mo.. March 11, 1890. H. R. Crowell, Esq., Baxter Springs, Kansas : Dear Sib: We hold $150,000 of the bonds of Baxter Springs due May 1, 1890. Several years ago there was some understanding in regard to these bonds to the effect, as I remember, that in case the balance of the inncbt. edncss of the citv should bo paid off by individual subscriptions or without imnosinz any tax or liability upon this company for such payment and a guaranty that no farther bonded in debtedness should be incurred; that the company would relinquish these bonds. Please inform me if the balance of the indebtedness has been paid off, and if any taxes have been levied for that purpose, which have been a tax npon the company. Also whether or not any new indebtedness has been incur red since the time of negotiations re ferred to. Yours truly, O. E. Lea bva bd. MURDER host foul. The Host Atrooloss Crime ever Corn- mlttcd la Cherokee County, Between Saturday evening and Sun dav morning last one of the most era el murders recorded in the annals of crime was committed just sonth of Galena. The victims were Chas. Wil liams, a blind man, and bis 10-year-old step-son Johnny Moody. Williams had lost both hands and his eyesight by an accident iu tho mines two years ago and at the time of the mur der occupied a small box suanty just outside of Galena where ho sold liquor, it is said. Sunday morning another son, who carried Williams' meals to him, made the horrible discovery of the fieudish work of the murderer. Tho two bodies were found in bed about as they would lie in 6leeu. The boy's head showed four wounds made prob ably with an axe, three on the face and one on the back of the head. The father had seven wounds in the face, and presented a horrible spectacle. Blood ran down the side of the bed while the boy's brains protruded from the fractured skull. It is probable that the act was com mitted for the purpose of robbery and that a colored man named Ailep is the oue who did it. Ailep was the last per son known to have been at the cabiu Saturday night aud Suuday morning he bought a bull dog revolver and a ticket over the Memphis road for Kan sas City. Sheriff Babb overhauled him at Prescott and landed him in the Columbus jail Monday. There is much circumstantial evidence against him and a lynching bee was freely talked of at Galena and probably would have occurred had Ailep been taken back there. The coroner's iury brought in a ver dict to the effect that, as thoy believed, Jerry Ailep committed the murder as stated in the above. Sheriff Babb took ten witnesses in the case from Galena to Columbus Wednesday when Ailep's preliminary examination was held. The testimo ny of one of Ailep's brothers was de cidedly against him aud there is little doubt that Ailep is the one who com mitted the double murder. THE BAXTER SPRINGS MANUFAC TURING C09CPANT. As stated last week Mr. Samuel Bricker of LaOtto, Ind arrived in the city about ten days since for the purpose of effecting the organization of a compauy for the manufacture of windmills on which he holds letters patent Messrs. Alex. Wsrner, A. Al len, fl. It Crowell, Mr. Bricker and others have been in consultation sev eral days and have finally succeeded in arranging matters so that a compa ny under the above name will be formvd at once. A charier has been filed with the secretary of state. The capital stock is fixed at $25,000 and the directors named for tdc first year are Alexander Warner, Samuel Bricker, Wm. Buchan, Samuel U. Smith, A. D. C. Harvey, A. Allen and G. T. Dev. The purpose of tho compauy is to carry on a general manufacturing businrss in woodand metal. It is the intention to push the planing mill and wind mill business at once and work up a Urge manufacturing plant. The enterprise will prove of great benefit to our city in many ways. We shall have more to say concern ing it la our next issne.
