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

The Austin shaft is over 80 feet deep

Thursday night and on account of

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

Messrs. Alexander Warner and II.
R. Crowell while out gunning for

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

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.

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.
