Close upon the news of the killing t.f Jesse James comes the inlelligtncc ol the election of a Republican mayor at Kansas Ciiy. The Democratic party in Missouri teems to be in hard luck this year.

It is pleasant to note that the popular prejudice against water is grad ually yielding lo the iutlueiicesof go.'pel truth at Uie "historic city." The Kentucky senate has passed a bill, probably jocularly, submitting to popular vote Hie iiue.-tion of prohibiting the manufacture and sale of intoxicating spirits in that state. The Cornier Journal predicts the inillenium before that measure becomes a law. One ' hundred member have been added to the M. K. church at Topeka through the labors of a female evangel 1st, named Mrs. Kobinpon. Had this lady lived In the days of the patriarchs it is fair to presume that Sodom and QomorrsU would have escaped destruc tion.

Did Dana publish the Garfield Rose crans letter to force llosecrans iuto a controversy that would prevent con gress from retiring him as a Major General t - Dona is viciott enough to do precisely that thing. We are inclined to think with the Catholic Universe, that it was "not the old man, but the family preacher" that Dana was after. Mrs. Gen. Sherman's influence over her family in religious matters appears paramount. Several years ago one of her sons left the world for the Catholic 'priesthood, and ou Saturday last, UUl Elanor Ewing,' one or her nieces, a bright, wealthy, and beautiful young woman, took the veil of the order of the Bisters of Mercy, in a Pittsburg con vent. She Is now to be known as Sister Mary Veronica.-- Her - mother, brothers and sister Edith witnessed the cere monies. The Atchison Champion starts i ' boom", for Governor St. John by nomi noting him for county attorney of Shaw, nee county. That paper declares that there are more saloons - in Topeka than in ny4wn In the state, and as his excellency claims that their suppression depends solely upon the vigilance of the local ofllcers, the Champion thinks that St. John in the capacity suggested could route the whiskyites at the cap! tal and thus add to his 'lustre as the mortal and hereditary foe of the liquor interest. No one probably but Martin would have thought of this expedient. Some plucky chap baa opened a snv logs bank at Caldwell. Newton reports a. conviction under the prohibitory law. Preparations for the inillenium are now in ordwr. The funeral servctes over the remains of Jesse James were almost enough to excite the risibles of the corpse. The Lamed Chronoscope wants to be withdrawn from the Atchison Cham pion's list of papers which are opposed to St. John. The Kansas City Journal has grap pled with the suspicion that "Old Baker" is iu dead earnest in his opposi tion lo St. John. The estate or a deceased hackman at Niagara Is returned at $38,000. He couldn't have been in the business more than a few weeks. The Massachusetts sea aerpeut has been seen off the Pacific coast at Sn Diego. Here is a pointer for persons addicted to California wine. A lunatic who Jumped from a swift railroad train in Michigan was almost killed by the shock, but has been per fecily sane since his recovery. The Cbatc County Leader goes too far the other way when it says St. John did nothing toward securing the prohi bition amenduieut to the constitution. The very acme of testhelicism now is a pumpkin blossom. There is more or .lsa fitness in adopting that flower as the ensigns the Wilde school of philo The lieuder boom seems lo have "pe tered out." The old man should have known better than to come to life while the public were attending the wake of Jesse Janus. The repoit thai President Arthur re ceived the other day a tempting mesa of rats dressed fir the cook, I'rolu a proin- neut Chimsc caterer of Washington lacks continuation. Iu the body of a chattel mortgage re cently recorded iu Wilson county, the following description of properly a- peared: "Thlrty aix head of hogs of bolb sects,of dark compactions aud vari ous shades of couuteuances." During the past year no leas than seventeen papers have "come to stay" at Topeka, all but ono or two of which have climbed the galden stair, leaving the journals which they started out to demolish in full possession of the field. The Louisville Courier Journal thinks the appointment of Gen. Rosecrans as chairman of the Democratic congress ional committee wan a mistake. Does Wutterson want the old party to go square back ou ils spleudid record for miking blunders John Samuels, the half-brother of esse James, now lies at the point of death at the old homestead in Clay county, having been shot through the lungs on a drunken spree lost January. The mortality in this family can not be too gi eat for the welfare of jhe state in which they reside. According to the statistician of the Atchison Champion there are eight dally journals and over fifty weekly pa pers in Kansas who are opposed to the next governor or Kansas painting bis mustache with nitrate of silver. It may be proper to add that the Topeka Com monwealth is included in this list. Mr. Mackey, of bonanza fame, denies that her daughter is to marry Prince Philippe de Bourbon, and in the denial shiuvs contempt for fortune-hunting bachelors. Her uotion seems to be that every man should scratch gravel for his own fortune,' the same as her husband did. The woman is right. The president, it is said, is nearly bored to death by the tender attentions of susceptible females desirous of mak ing a "mash" on his excellency. This must certainly be annoy in e, but a man could scarcely expect to enjoy immunity from a mothci -in-law and at the same time successfully evade all the other ills of life to which flesh is heir. It is said that the religious revival in Kentucky has lieen so thorough and general that the fasiotiable young women of that state use note paper bear ing the legend "Praise the Lord." If this Item is authentic we would not mind betting the soda water that "Old Kentuck" swings over lo the Republi can pyramid at the next general elec tion. A Wash i net on dispatch says of Guiteau that "despite his confinement, he is in perfect health and spirits, has gained twenty pounds, and is a9 fat aud plump as a spring chicken." This is probably thrown out as a pointer for the benefit ot tbu man who makes the rope to be used at a ceremonial wbieh will take place iu the jail at Washington on the oOth day of June. The Pennsylvania company has issued orders to all ticket agents to refuse to sell tickets to persons who are intoxi cated, aud all gateinen are instructed to pass no one who is under the influence of liquor. The company proposes by this means to protect Itself against suits of damage from persons injured on the road while they are under the influence of drink. Ex-Governor Hendricks in a speech at Indianapolis last week took decided ground against the submission of a pro hibitory amendment to the people or Indiana. He argued that the temper ance quvslion had not been an issue in the canvass when the present Legisl ture was ejected, and said that the Dem ocratic party would vigorously oppose the amendment. Some of the Democrat ic organs have already strongly objected to the party taking an anti-prohibition stand. The term "gerrymander" originated in a pun. Gov. Elbridge Gerry, ot Mas sachusetts, was the reputed author of a districting plan, which a political an tagonist described as a "salamander." A friend interposed, "say rather, a Ger rymander." Hence the term applied to districting plans that are not pleasing to the opposition- As a historical fact. Gov. Gerry disapproved the plan, but being adopted under his administration, and a caustic wit having given it a name. it adhered. It illustrates the adhesive ness of a lie when yoked with the truth. The New York Herald makes the fol lowing pertinent comment upon the difficulties presented by our polyglot Im migration : "There are Jews coming to the United States from Russia, Irishmen from Monster and Ulster, cordially de testing one another; 'Republicans and Bonapartists from France, German So cialist, and Imperialists; Italians, some of whom believe that the Pope has been cruelly wrongec, and others that he should be driven from Italy. To assim ilate all these and blend them into harmonious homogeneous political soci ety is a task which no other country in the world conld successfully undertake." BICH, BUT NOT HAPPY. The recent suicide of Cornelius J. Vanderbilt in a New York hotel adds another scandal to the record of this fsmily, so strangely compounded of greed, vice and wealth. The self-mur derer was the youngest of the sons of the erratic commodore who, despite his weallb, waa never anything but a boar swain in good clothes. Cornelius inher ited none of the money-making instincts of his father, and had none of fie greed of his brother, William. He was a reck less, dissipated youth, and soon came to be regarded as the black sheep of the family. At one time he waa known as a catd sharper and the associate of ques tionable men. His father virtually discarded him. and he ran into debt whenever be could get an opening, He bo ri owed foO.000 of the kind- hearted Horace Greeley, which the old commodore refused to pay After the old man's death public sen timent forced William to pay the nMMiey to Mr. Grerley'sdaughu ra. Vh n the commodore's will was made public it was discovered that William was the chief heir. Cornelius and his off-color sister, Mrs. Le Bau, who also suffered some disappointment, contested the will and brought out in the courts alLl the dirty inside life of the questionable family. The pride of William finally asserted itself, and he compromised, giving Cornelius, it is said, one million dollars. Since that time the idler has spent his lime roaming about the world. His constitution was broken up by bis hard life, and it was claimed that he was subject to epilepsy. He was not out of funds when he shot himself he had simply grown tired of his own dis gusting companionship. After he shot himself in the Glenham hotel, the aus tere brother William, who felt fur him the affection that Cain experienced for bis brother Able, drove up iu his carriage, looked at the corpse aud drove away like an offended Dives, scarce able to hide his chagrin. Money is a great and wor shipful thing iu modern society, but there arc scores of thousands of fam ilies in this country struggling along on $1,000 a year that would hardly ex change their peace, content and loving pride for a share of the Vanderbilt name and treasure. IMPORTANT DECISIONS. Topeka Capital : The supreme court of Kacsas rendered two important decis ions yesterday The first was in the matter of one franklin, of Ottawa. The petitioner was arrested under an ordin ance of the city of Ottawa, and convict ed for selling intoxicating liquors. He applied to the supreme court for a writ of habeau corpus, alleging that bis con viction was void, on the ground that as the ordinance waa passed prior to the enactment of the prohibitory law, the latter law annulled all of its provisions. The court held that so much of the or dinance as provided for tho issuance of license was void, as iu conflict with the stautes and constitution of the state, but that so much of the ordinance as inflict ed a penalty for selling liquor without a license therefor was valid, and there upon the conviction was affirmed and the petitioner remanded to the custody of the sheriff until his fine and costs shall be paid. The- second ease- -was that of one S-diweiler, convicted at Wichita a few months ago for selling intoxicating liquors without a permit and sentenced to pay a fine of $300 and costs, and to stand committed to the county jail until fine and costs were paid. He appealed to the supreme court, alleging that his conviction was erroneous. Among other matters he alleged that section 21 of the prohibitory act, which dispenses with the necessity of setting forth in the information the namts of the parties to whom the liquors are sold, was un constitutional ; and he also alleged that the information was bad for duplicity in charging several offenses in one count. The couit held section 21 consti tutional and cited a very large number of the decisions of the various states supporting this view. The court fur ther held that the allegation of duplici ty was not sustained, and that upon the whole record there was not sufficient er ror to cause a reversal of the judgement. The conviction was therefore afflmed. In this latter case, many questions of practice arising upon trials under the prohibitory law were discussed and dis posed of adversely to. the defendant. The case is, therefore, important not only because of the interpretation given in it to several disputed provisions of the statute, but also on account of the practical results likely to flow from the decision of questions of practice which so frequently arise in cases of this char acter. WELL PUT. Kansas City Journal : There is a great deal of sentimentality about the manner of the shooting of Jesse James. Ac cording to the opinion of many it would have been the correct and chivalrous thing for Mr. Robert Ford to address Mr. Jesse James somewhat in this way "Mr. James, I have the honor to bear a commission for the taking of your life. Will you be so kind as to draw and cock your best revolver and present it at my left temple. I will then pro ceed to kill you with neatness aud dis patch." Mr. James would then have said : "But my dear friend, whom I have for months fed, and cared for in order to use you when I might have occasion, you would not thus take advantage of a man who has but six revolvers, a doable barreled shotgun and a Winchester rifle Spare me, I pray you, and I will turn myself over to Commisioner Craig or Sergeant Ditsch, whose mercy I know I can de pend upon." According to this sentimental author ity there is no doubt that Jesse would have taken his hat and at once put him- sell in lue nanas oi tne authorities. PLUMB'S VIEW OP IT. In the United States senate on the 30th of March, on a bill to make an ap propriation to educate the children of the Indians, Senator Plumb made a speech from which we make a sample extract: . Mr. President: What is education? Is it not educating a man to teach him to do something that he has not before done? Is it not educating a man to teach him to take care of cattle that he has not before done Is It not educat ing a man to teach him to take care of his body and lead himself from the dsu- perized condition In which he is found Is there any higher education than that? it so, wnat is It? When you have put a man in a condition to cover his back, to clothe himself, to feed his stomach, and to relieve himself of the good offices and charities of the eovern ment. is there any other office the o-ov- ernment ought to perform in regard to U1UI . w ucw;s CISC cuuica W I11U1 Will come to him because of the inducement which the result of his labor brings to his comprehension. If he wants A B Ca, It will be because by reason of what he has learned he realizes that the A B Ca enlarge his capacity; that he can take care of more cattle; that he can multiply his faculties, his opportunities and his offices. As I said, ire are betrin- ning at the wrong end when we neglect these obvious things and propose to give the money of the government to these Indians for that which they do not ap preciate, ana wntcn tney cannot in any appractable way make them self sup porting." Senator Gillett has just closed a con tract for 4,000 acres of Missouri Pacific lands in Chase county, which he will convert into a cattle ranch. INQALLS ON THE TARIFF. The following interview with Iogulls on the subject of the tariff is reported to the Topeka Commonwealth by its cor respondent at the national -capital : "les,"sad the Senator, "out in my own town of Atchison, Kansa, they are consuming potatoes brought from Scotland. Here ia an instance where the heresy of free traJe seems to find room to take root. But upon general princi ples the high sounding and captivating theory that one should buy where one can buy the cheapest, and sell where they can sell the dearest, is a delusion, a nctiou, a fancy and ument ot the lin agination. Twenty-five years a''0, when I went to Kansas, I noticed all along the Missouri river great fields of hemp growing luosericn alluvial bottoms along the Missouri and the Mississippi and their tributaries, are specially adapted to the development of this industry. Those great furm houses and big barns and im rnense plantations on the Platte purchase are largely the result and product ot tin grow in g of hemp. It was immensely remunerative. Tne soil, the climate. the conditions of labor were specially stimulative in the growth of this branch of production. That industry is now a thins of the past. It has no cxistance. Had an impenetrable aad overwhelm ing cloud of insects settled down upon that vast region, and remained there day aud night summer and winter; bad a tornado swept over that vast scope of country each successive season and de stroyed every product each year; bad a blicht rested upon all the land and blasted every effort of human energy, more completely perfect, and absolute desolation and death to the hemp-growing interests would not have ensued. And what do you suppose was the cause of this destruction to an impor tant and growing interest? Just at that fraction ot a second a ready response lo the senator's conun drum did not suggest itself to my mind, and the senator said : "Why, a few years ago it was suggest ed to somebody by some one as a smart thing to reduce the duty on jute butts a course fibrous article grown in India on ten-cents-per-diiy labor from $20 to $G per ton. From that moment hemp growing in the west and il is princi pally remunerative in the great and rich valleys ot our western and rotithern rivers was doomed. The jule butts are brought over as ballast for a trifle; it is grown for next to nothing by pau per labor :n India and the east, aud, of course, our American hemp growers can not compete in its production agaiixit such odds." Louisville Courier Journal: Mr. Jesse G!ass, of Shclbyvill., Kentucky, a din-dor of the bank of- Shclbyvillc, and one of the most reputable of that high- toned town's citizens, was well acquaint ed with Zerelda Cole, n.w the famous Mrs.4Samueli, when she was a country girl living near Stamping Ground, in Scott county, the seat of "Old Dick" Johnson's Indian school. He has often talked to the writer of the houyant mid beautiful "Tomlioy" girl whose remem brance of hi in was perpetuated in the Christian name of her robber boy who now lies dead in St. Joe, Missouri. He represented her as a buxom country hos, with' no over nice seui-e of delicacy, brimming full of fun, a dating horse woman, a good dancer, and not afraid of the deil himself. It is not strange that the pious preacher whom she took for a husband, found the Missouri hoftic too warm lor him, and sought peace by sloping to tho Pacific slope. One would think that an unmarried maiden like Bliss Phoebe Cozzens would feel somewhat delicate about so liciting a position among a lot of men to investigate I lie nastiness of Mormon polygamy. But there's no accounting for tastes. Phoebe is brobably one of those women about whom her mother cried when she was born because she was not a boy, und has been aspiring lo that honor to assuage her mother's grief. The romancer of the Chicago Herald exhausts his resources in the following item: "A wagon load of misery excited pity at Ottawa, Kansas. It was a hand cuffed thief on his way to prison ; his insane wife, who was being taken to an asylum ; two children going lo the poor house, and a dead baby b:und for a graveyard. The object in taking them all in one vehicle was lo manage the wo man easily, as she refused to be parted from the rest. Twelve mining companies have al ready, this year, declared dividends of $100,000 and upwards; Calumet and necla, $--.00,000; Quincy, $320,000; Horn Silver, $320,000; Evening Star, $230,000; Ontario, $225,000; Standard, $223,000; Tombstone, $130,000; Jocuistia, $130,. 000; Richmond, $133,000; Copper Queen, $125,000; Iron Silver, $100,000; Osceola, $160,000. Total, $2,530,000. In 18S1 Great Britain expended for in toxicating liquors, $034,372,300. The consumption of beer waa nearly a hun dred million gallons, or twice the mau ufacture of the same liquor in the Uni ted States iu the same year. The total expenditure in the kingdom for liq uor lor the past decade was $7,180,000, 000, nearly "twice the amount of the national debt. The public dibt decreased nearly six teen and one-ha'f million dollars during the month of March. One of the fruits of Republican administration. And now will the members of the Iroquis Club sit down and figure out just bow many Andrew Jackson dinner speeches ou centralization it takes to make as good a campaign document as that? It is said that 1G0 names of congress men appear on the memorandum lying on Speaker Keifer's table who d'isire to speak on the tariff commission bill. The next congressional record will therefore be unusually bulky, and it is doubtful whether the country will be much wiser. This kind ot literary lumber is increasing in quantity every year.

Jesse James, whose maiden name was this morning slated to be Zerelda Jdimma, was visited by a Journal re porter this afternoon. He has been in the employ of T. M. James & Sons for the post six years, and said that as his name had never been put before the pub lic in connection with the outlaws, he was very averse to its use iu that con nection cow. Upon entering into con versation with him, however, he gave tome very interesting scraps of history in connection with the most notorious bandit this country ever produced. His mother was a sister or tne James ruotuer was a sisver oi uie jauies boys' father, and Ub 1 ami lies had.al-rjjg' ways Known eucu oiner. ins sisier nau married Jesse in 1874, the ceremony be ing performed by their uncle. Rev. Wil liam James, who makes his residence a portion of the year with a daughter, .Mrs. Kirkpatrick, living in West Kan sas. The mother of Miss Minims was living at the lime of the marriage and objected to the match. The uncle who married them says he saw they were at tached to each otherand had determined to live together - and thought a cer etnory very desirable under the cir cumstances and so performed it. Miss Mimms had nursed Jesse through a spell of sickness just at the close of the war, and it is probable the attachment be tween them dates from that time. Some years since Mrs. Mimms died and the members of the family now consist only of Mrs. Jesse James, her brother, and Mrs. McBride, who lives with her hus band iu this city. HIS RESIDENCE in this city. In answer to questions concerning the number of times Jesse and his wife had resided in this city, Mr. Mimms stated that Jesse and his wile boarded here about a year after they were married. They did not live here again until about the 1st of lost June, when they rented a house out on Woodlp- tvenue, between Thirteenth aud Fourth., th streets. The house is a white frame, on the west fcide of the street. While here Jesse went under the namo of Jacks'in. After liv iiijr about four months at this bouse they moved to a house on East Ninth street, in the first block ea3t of Wood land avenue. Ibis was a two story frame, on the north side of the street, the owner of which was George Rick. After living in this house about a monlh.they moved to 1017 Troost avenue, where they remained about a month longer, when on November 2 they left the citv. Their whereabouts after this until their arrival at St Jo seph on November 9 were not known to the narrator. While in this city be lre- quently saw Jesse aud his wife and was about tho only person In the city who knew of Jesse's being hero at the time. Jesse did not often show himself upon the streets, but had walked down Main street once and had no tear of being dis covered. He did not leave here on ac count of any uneasiness. Being questioned concerning tue re port that Jesse was Hove", g around Independence at me uyan in.u, ana uaa planned a bold bank robbery at that place, Mr. Mimms said he did not be lieve anvthiutr of the report. He did not think Jesse had been in the vicinity of Independence for about two years. Sneaking of the killing of Jesse, he said the affair was not unexpected tohim. Dissensions and suspicions had arisen n the gang, and it was ouly natural that such a denouement should occur. The first difficulty had occurred in Nashville about a year ago. Tho gang were there at that tim, and first became suspicious of Jim Cammtngs. Afler-a. quarrel Cummings bad disappeared, and the gang, alraui mat ne inteniiea giving iher.i away, made hasty arrangements for a departure. When arrangements had been about completed news came of the arrest of Ryan, and this immediate ly determined the gang to take their de parture, which they did that night. As to whether Jesse's ueatn would 11KEAK UP THE OPERATIONS of the eang forever, Mr. Mimms hazard ed an opinion that it would. Every living member ot the old gang lias Dccome suspicious ot his associates, and disinte gration is a natural consequence. with Georire Shepherd was broached by the reporter, and Mr. Mimms expressed considerable contempt for Shepherd's story and his veracity in general. He had not read the interview, but each of its points related to htm by the reporter was pronounced laise oy tir. Mitnins. shennerd s statement mat nc did not believe Jesse was killed was in stanced as an evidence of Shepherd's lack of judgment about the matter. The reporter asked it ne nad neara trom bis sister since Jesse's death. He said that soon after the shooting he received a dispatch from bis sister saying, "Jesse has been shot and is dead. A star re porter had called on him Monday to as certain if he had received any word from his sister, but be had declined to be intei viewed. He could not help bis connection with the James boys, and he had never boasted of the connection, nor often mentioned the matter, and did not want any more notoriety regarding the mat ter than it was possible for him to avoid. When asked if he had any further communication with his sister since the shooting, Mr. Minims said Ire had tele graphed to her to notify him if she want ed him to render any assistance, and a dispatch had been received only a short time before to the following etlect: St. Joseph, April 4.

The talk was then directed to the por tion of Shepherd's interview which de scribed the personal appearance of Jes se and Frank James. Mimms 6ays Jesse was about five feet eleven inches tall and would as readily pasfor a business man as would Frank. 1 hey both were quiet, mild mannered aud genteel ap pearing when iu the company of men, and there was uothia" in their appear ance to distinguish them especially from other people. Being asked if it was true that Jesse was illiterate and hardly able to read or write, Mimms denied the story. He said that Jesse was not a good scholar and his spelling was imperfect, but he read the newspapers constantly, aud frequently wrote letters. He would dash off a letter without paus ing once, and would never read it over. Frank was quieter and more reserved and had a better education, but Jesie was by no means illiterate. THE CHARACTERISTICS of the two men were then dwelt upon Jesse was of a roving disposition, rest less and daring. He liked some reck less expedition, and was a wouderful horseman. He could ride 100 miles a day without any trouble, and bad once averaged tighty miles a day for ten days. He more was reckless in going among strangers than Frank. Jesse would of ten put up at a house where he knew nothing of the character of the people. Frank would never stop anywhere but at the house of a friend in whom he had confidence. Frank never gave any clues as to his whereabouts. He never wrote a letter, and did not unnecessarily ex pose himself. THEIR OCCUPATIONS. When asked what the boys did be twees their exploits for an occupation, Mr- Mimms said they farmed and raised stock. It was not true that they were Idle. It was necessary for them to have an occupation in order to allay suspi cion, and the boys were good farmers. Jesse hxd dealt some in thoroughbred horses, and Frank's favorite lines were pigs and poultry. The subject of Jesse's reputed ranche in Texas was mentioned, but Mr. Mimms only smiled at the idea, say ing nothing of the kind had been in existence. Shepherd's story about Frank living in magnificence in New York and dining detectives and police officers was ridiculed by Mr. Mimms. He said Frank never lived there and waa very far from courting the friendship of de tective. The storv that Frank was worth $100,000 was also discredited, the opinion being given that Frank did not have over $2,0u0 at present. Mr. Mimms was then asked when be bad heard from Frank last. He said he saw Frank about two years ago at the house of a friend in Clay county. He did not know where he bad been since that time, but did not believe he had stopped in this vicinity. The story of a morning contemporary tnat .Frank and his wife had stopped at the St, James hotel lost summer was pronounced nothing but rubbish. Frank was not here then, nor would he have exposed himself by going to the SL Jamea if he had been in town. The reporter called attention to the fact that Mrs. Jesse James was reported to have said at the coroner'a inquest that she knew where . Frank was, but did not propose to reveal his wherea bouts. Mr. Mimms said he didn't be lieve she had said any such thing, for be didn't think she knew anvthinz about Frank's whereabouts. Frank would let nobody know of his place of residence. SOT AT SHORT CREEK. Returning again to Shepherd's storv of the killing of Jesse James at Short creek in. loiv, Mr. Mimms said he happened to know that Jesse was not within 500 miles of Joplin at the time of the al leged skirmish between Jesse and Shep herd. On the Sunday before the Short i creek affair Jesse started for Nashville. and was seen by Mimms In this city that day, and on the next Sunday, the Kay of the Short creek melee, instead of vetting a hole shot in the back of his bead by Shepherd at Joplin, was quiet -,!,.;.,,- J himself at home in JNaah- The reporter then took his departure. When he called later in the day he was informed that Mimms bad taken the train, presumably in response to .. telegram to render his widowed iuki any aid which her helpless condition might demand. NOT AT HOME. A visit was next made to the residence of Mrs. Kirkpatrick, Wyoming street, West Kansas. At this house the Rev. Wm. James spends much of his time. and it was hoped he might be talked with. He it was who performed the marriage ceremony between Jesse and his cousin, and he no doubt would be able to furnish many interesting remin iscences oi im dead nepnew. it nas been said that shortly after Jesse re turned from the war he joined the Baptist church at Kearney, and for some time appeared to be leading the life of a devout Uhrtstian. ua these ana many other points all the light obtainable is now ot a htghly interesting nature. J he itev. Mr. James could not be found at home, however, and the bouse bore a deserted appearance. There w no response to the raps made by the re porter upon the doors of the residence. and inquiry of the neighbors resulted in tne information that no one had been at home during the day, and it is probable that they, too, have gone to assist in the tuneral arrangements. NEIGHBOR'S STORIES. People who lived next door to the house on Woodland avenue which Jesse James and his family occupied last summer were found yesterday, and they very distinctly remembered "Mr. Jack son," as he was called, and his family. One neighbor lady said she well remem bered his piercing eyes, which, she re marked at that time, seemed to look right through a person. The neighbors, generally, thought Jesse a gambler, as he seemed to do no worn, but they bad not tue slightest bus picion that he was Missouri's most not ed outlaw. Once he was gone for two weeks, and on inquiry of his wife she stated that be had gone to some springs ior ms neaitn. 1 his was about the time of the Winston train robbery. ine nousn wnicn ine lainiiy lived in was but poorly furnished, there being no carpets on the floor and only a chair or two in the house. Mrs. James stated that they were only going to live there a short lime, and for that reason thev did not think it worth while to furnish the house. Jesse is said to have ap peared crabbed when any visitors were present, and plainly indicated by his manner that be did not want any strangers around. His wife is said to have been a very kindly disposed and neighborly woman, and once when a neighbor's child died she assisted in laying out the corpse and making funer al arrangements. One day the "J acksons" were round to be gone, bat nobody had seen them depart, and no. one knew where they hod gone. There had evidently been some sudden reason for their departure, as they had paid rent on the house for some time beyond the date of their leaving. The affair caused some com ment at the time among the neighbors, but as no one saw them again the won der gradually subsided, and but for the tragic end of the outlaw's career it is probable that the Woodland avenue people would have lost all recollection of their crabbed neighbor, and would have neyer entertained a suspicion that J. T. Jackson was none other than the notorious Jesse James. THE OBSEQUIES. Funeral Services of Jesse Jamea at Kear ney. Kansas City, April 6. The funeral of Jesse James took place at Kearney to day. The train with the posse left St. Joseph at 7 :30 last nignt. At Cameron there was a delay through the impossi bility to get a special train. While there Mrs. Samuels and Jesse's widow were the guests of Yank Robinson. A little after midnight the train lef t Cameron on a special car, tied to a freight train. The body was on the rear of the pas senger car, guarded by Timberlake, Luther James, a cousin of Jesse, and Frank Mimms, a brother of the widow. At daylight the sky had cleared and the sun rose upon roads which were deep tn mud. Horsemen began coming from every direction at the earliest hours. The coffin still lay with uncovered lid upon the upturned box in the office of the little hotel, and to the magnet of at traction, each new comer hovered as if by instinct. The incoming trains brought fresh arrivals and the scene was that ot a swarming fair day. the south bound train passed through at 7:43, and it was stopped long enough to permit the officials and passen gers to view Uie body, the hotel being only half a dozen rods from the station. The other passenger trains were stopped for the same purpose. The funeral party left the hotel at 2:10 in the afternoon. First came the wagon with the corpse and next the family, next mounted officers, and last a wagon with reporters, an immense crowd on horse back and on foot, aud in wagons followed. -The pall bearers were Sheriff Timberlake, Di pmy Reed. Charley Scott. J. B. Henderson. J. D. Ford, Ben Flanders and Jaiuvs Vaughn. - On the hill around the church was a big crowd At the door the Rev. Martin met the mourners and asked Mrs. Samuels if she objected to Brother Jones assisting in the services. She said she did not. After the body was carried into the church the services began with the hymn "W hat a mend 1 have in Jesus." ine Rev. Jones followed in prayer, after which the hymn "Where shall rest be found" was sung. The Rev. J. M. Mar tin then toiiowed wiui the tuneral ser mon. Aflet Rev. Martin bad concluded his remarks, which were full of comfort for the mourners, in which be dwelt on the forbearance and willingness to for give of Christ, the procession started for the farm in the same order in which it went from the hotel to the church. r It was followed by an immense crowd. AT THE OKAVE, The Mother of Jeaao Jamea Calla Don Vengeance oa Hi Slayer. Keaksey, Mo, April ' 7. During ine lunerat services over tne remains ol Jesse James the women were all visibly all ec ted. Tne motner moaned and groaned aloud. From tbe church the procession, composed of firty or sixty persons in buggies, wagons and horse back, moved oat over the - country to the Samuels farm, which lies about four miles nearly northeast of Kearney. It is a rough road, through vales, over hills and across streams, and, in the neighborhood ot the family residence, is heavily timbered and covered with a thick growth of "brush." Adjoining the Samuels farm is the farm owned by Askew, with whose untimely taking off the dead Jesse was charged. The "bush," as it is called, which consisted mostly of large growth trees, oa the Kearney side of the farm, has within the past two years been mostly cut down. Arrived at the house, the coffin was tak en into the room where the wounded son, John Samuels, lay in bed. It was turned on edge and he was raised up so that he could see the features of his dead brother. He wept bitterly and cried: "Oh, oh, God! Ob, Jesse, that ever I should see you brought home this way." t ne mower spproocnea tne nea&iae and assuming a dramatic position, rais ed her only hand aloft and said in Aloud tone of voice: Johnny, my boy look upon your saint ed brother Jesse, your murdered brother Jesse! Look upon him and then look upon your poor, broken-hearted, shat tered mother, lie is dead ; they have killed him your poor brother Jesse. He is in heaven. He has gone to ' Uod, and God will judge him. He is taken from me and I have no one now to lean upon. Johnny, live for your mother, your, poor, heart-broken mother. Johnny made no response except to groan. THE COFFIN WAS PLACED UPON CHAIRS in the yard and the lid open. Mrs. Sam- uefa came out, sobbing: "My heart is broke, my heart is broke; broke! broke! uroke : ! un, my heart is broke. They have killed my sainted son. She was followed by Mrs. Jamea, who amid ber sobs and with tears streaming down her cneeKS, cauea on uod to avenge .the death of her good, kind husband, who was slain by a cowardly murderer for money. She clung to the coffin, bowing ner ueau upon tne glass, declaring that she would not let him go. Like Mra.Sam- ueiu, are repeated over and over the ex pressions : "He has gone to God. He is in heaven. God will condemn and pun ish all who had a hand in murdeiing him for money "etc. Raising her voice and standing erect, she exclaimed: "The governor ottered $30,000 to have them killed. He was killed for money, and may God punish them for it." She asked: "Why did they kill him? Why did they lake him from me and mv chil dren? He would not harm them." The climax was reached when Mrs. Samuels, standing at one end of the coffin, looked Sheriff Timberlake in the face, and pointing her finger at him, said : "Yes. they killed him for money for gold "f greenbacks ; for money ! lor money ! lot t them take their money, their goia and their greenbacks. It will do them no good. The officers of the law have done this. They have hired mur derers to do it. God will judge them for it- I have no money. I want no money. I shall not judge them. I will leave that to God. If he can -forgive them I can." Sheriff Timberlake, although sur rounded by men who were known to have been intimate friends of Jesse James, never flinched. Last week, she continued, he was at my house. He said to me when he was going away : Moth er, you may never see me again, but I am not as bad as they would make me out to be. This was said sobbingly. By this time several women were weeping over the coffin, and not a a few male eyes were moist. Becoming calm, both Mrs. Samuels and Mrs. James wanted the glass lid removed. - At first Mrs. James pretended that she wanted a lock of Jesse's bair, but it was finally developed that she. had come to the conclusion that bis arms and legs had been taken off and wax ones substituted tnstead. sueriH timberlake. having no screw driver large enough to turn the screws offered to go to a farm house and bor row one, but the women were finally sat isfied, and the body was committed to tne grave in tbe vard while they stood and watched the fresh earth thrown upon the board box. seemingly incon solable. PROHIBITION IX KANSAS. The Workings of the Law-Nuiueroul Convictions Jnler-Oacaa Correspondence. Topeka, Kas., April 1. Having spent the last three months in Central and southern Kansas, traveling the entire length of the slate from Atchison on the Missouri river to the frontier, fit'tv miles west of Dodge City visiting county seats and many of the large towns, I had a favorable opportunity of learning tne workings ot orolnbition in Kansas. The prohibitory law is enforced with fully as much vigor as are oilier statutes. Many violators have been ar raigned before the courts, numerous convictions have occurred, with fines of f tuu ior eacn olleuse, and costs often amounting to $150 more; and even where there had been a failure to con vict, the liquor seller has been kept in a hot water of agitation and anxiety. The results are most salutary. Public sen timent in favor of the law is increasing. Even journals indifferent to the princi ple advocate the enforcement ot the stat ute as law-abiding citizens. Twenty five ministers met recently at an associ ation in Kansas.-- Twenty-three of them reported from a partial to an entire suc cess in the enforcement of prohibition in their respective towns. The distil lery in Topeka stopped manufacturing in r euruary, and its owners are going to remove it to a license state, acknowl edging that the business has become dis agreeable, dangerous and unprofitable. The president of the distillery company is reportea tonave recent l v said: ".Near ly one half of the liquor trade has fal len ou : we meet with constant opposi tion, are hampered and hounded by tem perance people, liable to be closed up Dy tne state authorities and fined, none of the first-class insurance companies will have anything to do with our prop erty." HOW THE LAW WORKS. A representative ot the liquor traffic at Kansas City, Mo says : " We send no more liquor agents into Kansas." Last Monday, at Beloit. Kansas, tkve saloon keepers and two druggists were convicted by the district court, in sums of from $100 to $400 each, for violation of the law ; and a multitude of similar instances might be produced, showing proniDinon does prohibit :n ivansas. Electoral Count Bill. Washington; April 7. The presiden tial count bill, which passed the senate without an amendment, provides that tne presidential electors ot each state shall meet and give their votes tbe sec ond Monday of January next following tnetr appointment at sucn place as tbe legislatures ot the states may direct. That each state, pursuaat to its laws existing on the day fixed for the appoint ment ot electors, may determine prior to tne maKing ot the electors and the controversy - concerning the appoint ment ot any or ail ot them. That such a determination shall be conclusive evidence of the lawful title, and shall govern in the count by con gress. That no election vote or voters from which but one return has been received shall be rejected, except by the affirma tive vole of the two houses. That it more than one return is re ceived from the state votes, those electors appointed by tbe lawful tribunal of the state shall be counted, and in the event of a question as to which of the two or more of such state tribunals is lawful, tbe tribunal votes of the electors ap pointed by that tribunal which the two bouses, acting separately, shall decide to be authorized, that one shall be counted That in case of an undetermined con test between the two or more sets of electors of the state, those votes shall be counted which tbe two houses, acting separately, shall decide to be the lawful electoral vote. The bill also provides that if the counting or votes shall not be com pleted before the fifth of the calendar day next after the first joint meeting of the two houses, no recess shall bo after- ward taken by cither house until tbe counting is finished. , Terrible Wind Storm. Chicago, April 7. An Evening Jour nal's special says: A terrific tornado swept through the township of Kalamo, Eaton county. last night, it did im mecte damage to houses and barns, and killed a large nam Per or live stock Several persons are reported killed and a large number injured- This place is remote from the teiegrapn. iater par ticulars say that in Oakland county, La fayette-Crandaii, ms sister and little boy. and Mrs. Henry Tyler were killed, and his little girl's arm so badly crusuea as to require amputation. Miss Orra Ward was also injured. The debris looks like an explosion, every. thing -being ground to atoms. One horse was blown out of a barn and found in a distant field covered with mud.: An idiot sister of Horace Sher man, ef Kalamo, was killed, and another sister's leg broken. His wife's jaw was dislocated, and the whole family car ried fifty rods, thrown into a swamo and badly bruised. 1 FreeldeaUal Woailnalioaa. Washington. D. C April 6. The president nominated Henry M.

A severe hail and wind storm visited this region yesterday afternoon. At KindalL on the South Haven road, there was a regular cyclone. Mr. Wilde's house was blown down. He was killed and his wife and friends injured. Other buildings were unroofed. The cyclone moved east across the northern part of this county, unroof ing Darns ana aoing outer asm age. it is ramored that a man was killed in Cooper township. THE CHASE CYCLONE. Havoc Wrought by the Toroado In Rice County. Sterling. Kas., April 6. A cvclon started south of the Arkansas, near Ray inondjasl evening.and moved in a norm erly direction. It prostrated twenty. three telegraph poles where it crossed tbe Santa fe track, and unroofed Mr. Davis'B barn. Jno. Wilson's house was blown down, killing his wife and so injuring Mrs. Parker, who was at Wilson's that there are no hopes of her recovery. Two or three large and strongly built barns were demolished in the neighborhood. Preceeding north, the destroyer struck the new and thriving town of Chase, and demolished twenty out oi twenty six Duildings in the town, and threw ten cars from the track. Mr. Read, hotel keeper, was killed ind his wite so injured that she cannot recover. Another women and child were also killed, At about the same time, 6 n. m small cyclone passed over the eastern portion ot tne county, but did no dam age so far as heard of. 1 bis was a veritable water-spout, pour ing a deluge in places and sucking up everything loose in others. It passed over E. B. Lawrence's well and drew out all the water. Lyons, Kan, April C. At about o'clock last evening a cyclone coming from the southwest struck the town of Chase, destroying almost every building in it. All the usual incidents ot a cv clone were visible. The cloud was fun- nel-shuped, whirling and twisting with fearful velocity. But three houses in the town were missed, the rest being all oadiy damaged. The heaviest losers were the Eckles Bros, sons of Hon. J. C. Eckles. whose store room was entirely demolished and stock of goods badly scattered. Loss, Ed. Chatlen, same, and residence lust completed, also Diown down. Lioss, Sutton, Swisher ic Dupree, store room in course of erection blown down, and lumber in lumber yard blown away, Hard to estimate loss. Geo. F. Miller, new two-story business bouse blown to pieces. Loss, $1,800. Congregational church, in course of construction, blown down. Loss, $1,500. J. J. Reed's house blown down. He was killed and his wife sustained fatal injuries. Mr. Hartshorn's residence blown down. M. E. church, dedicated lost Sabbath, twisted quarter way around on founda tion and badly wrecked. Wash Grove's house same fix. Mr. Carpenter's house has one end blown out. Muscott Bros, store badly shaken and stock damaged by rain. Dr. W. W. bpiers new drug store building blown off its foundation. The depot was partially unroofed and ten empty cars and one loaded coal cor were ditch, d. A Mr. Tucken was caught in tbe de bris of a building and his back serious ly sprained. One horse was killed. All the inhabitants were more or less injured but none so seriourly as those noted. Station agent John Langan was of great assistance to the people allowing them to use the box-cars to save what they could from the storm and several families moved in for shelter during the night. The day had been one of April show ers and sunshines, most of the showers being light and pleasing. On occasions a little bail had fallen, but there had been no excessive heat and sultri ness, such as usually precede a cyclone. 1 lie rest ot tne county at about that time was visited by a heavy, dashing rain, Hooding tne already well soakud ground, and except in the cyclone af flicted portion thousands of dollars worth of good has been done. sterling, itice county. Han.. April 7. A twenty-four hours further view ot the rains ot Chase bave but added to our respect tor the tury ot a Kansas zephyr when it gets fairly aroused. Willi t closer inspection ot tbe dam- age and interviews with the sufferers it seems that the wind was of the nature of a torna lo rather than a cyclone. The debris of the buildings were all strewn in a northeast direction, except the Con gregational church. It was blown in a northwest direction. The reports from the country south west and northeast show that the storm extended for miles. It crossed the A, T. & S. F. east of Raymond, tearing down a dozen tele graph poles. 1 he buildings on tbe farm of J. M. Protfit were badly racked and a splendid orchard almost ruined. The house of S. Wilson was demol ished; Mrs. Wilson, just on the point of confinement, was killed, and a young lady, daughter or C. Forter, a neighbor, was badly injured. It is yet doubtful if me injuries are not iaiai. The buildings on the farms of W. D, McFarland and Geo. W. liovean were also destroyed. The extensive building covering the Borg um machinery of J. K. May berry, was leveled to the ground. A large barn one of the best in Rice county on the farm of T. J. West was blown away, but seven head of horses were left in their stalls uninjured The damage in Chase was even great er than reported yesterday, but its inhab itants, with stout hearts, nave begun the work of clearing away preparatory to rebuilding. Sutton, Swisher & Deupree, and Geo. F. Miller have had all the men to work to-day that they could procurecollecting the remnants to use what they can in new buildings. Mrs. J. J. Reed would recover were it not that she is enceinte, and the shock may be fatal. Mrs. Henry Muscott is recovering though she remembers nothing of the storm, or how she was hurt, Her baby was snatched fro:n ber arms aad car. ried some rodsfurther by tbe storm, but not injured. Hon. J. G. Eckles bad just driven, in from the country, and leaving tbe horse aud buggy stepped to the side of his son's building to shield himself from the storm. Feeling the building com inz over, he threw himself upon the ground and the building was blown to pieces over nis neao, out ne was un harmed. Mrs. J. G. Eckles and Mrs J. A. Eckles were up stairs, each with a child in her arms. Feeling tbe build, ing go'ng, they threw themselves upon the bed and went down "just as easy' Injuring no one of the four. J. A. Eck les jnd R. R. Eckles, the members of tbe firm of Eckles Bros, were down stairs and both were hurt. A flying scantling just grazed tbe forehead of It. R. Eckles, above tbe left eye an inch closer it would have brained htm. J A. Eckles' arm is laid up for repairs in a sling. Tbe residence of G. W. Gross was un roofed, and the building caught fire, but was put out by the falling rain. Mrs. Gross was burned about tbe arms. The residences of Wyatt Green and William Stillweli, small, bnt probably containing the all of the owners, were completely demolished. Hinds' blacksmith shop was blown away, but the anvil and forges are left. UI course many curious and wonder- ful events are narrated. An empty tin can was blown into and almost through a plank in the plaliorm surrounding the depot. A tub full of eggs sets safely and soundly on the floor of Chalten's store, wnne ail around is ruin, ay tne way, Ed Chalten's residence, which he had just completed, was to be the home of his bride. Thev were married Qui etly after the storm, but will have to wait some weeks for a home. NORTHERN ZEPHYRS. Fearful Tornado, With Aeesaapaaylas; Law or Lll ana Property. Chicago. April 7. A special from Clyde station, Michigan, reports a ter rible hurricane near Highland station. on the Flint and Pere Marquette road south of Holly station, last night- The extent of damage is unknown, as the telegraph line ia blown down and the railroad agent waited to Clyde to send whst he knew. The dwelling of a man named Crandall was blown down. Cran- dall and one child were killed and a daughter severely injured. A guest, Mrs. Taylor, of Pontiac. was also killed and several other persons injared. The hurricane covered an area of less than half s mile wide, but leveled ev erything in its path. There are reports also of a high and destructive wind and heavy rains in the vicinity of Keokuk and along the Wabash and Rock Island roads in Iowa, and at Keosauquad and Hnmeston, Iowa, and Kahoka and Ash ton, Missouri. At these four places the damage waa very severe. Full particu lars are wanting because telegraohic communications are shut off. PROFESSIONAL Attorneys at Law. J. HARVET FRITH, TTOIlSEY.T-L,AW.
