Endorse tho Tax BUI, but Reoommand Cltanfat , Commlllaa Appolntod lo Mael Commission, ' A limited account was printed In the Gazette last week of the county clerk's meeting In this city. When It went to pirns the meeting had Just commenced and got well under way. It was no doubt the most Important meeting of tho county clerks that has been held In many years. Tho pi In clpal reason for tills Is t lie fact that the weight of tho county clerk's opinions on matters relating to taxa tlou is supposed to be something ponderous, and the new (ax bill was the principal subject for discussion this year. Senator Fred Duinont Smith of Kinsley who Is chairman of the tax commission and on the strength of this fact is struggling to bo known as tho father or at least tho grandfather or some other near relative of tho bill, was hero to boost along. 1 1 o mado quite a speech very zealously telling of Its great mer its. Auditor Cole was also enthusl astlc In Its. behalf. Then there were one or twir county clerks, with politi cal aspirations probably, who wanted the bill endorsed with a ringing res olution Instanter. Tho fact that every clerk but ono had held up his hand to Indicate, that he had not read the bill as It was printed in Its com plete form mado no difference. The printed copies of the bill were not sent out till a few days previous to t lie meeting of the clerks. However Iho clerks generally were a little re luctant to bo so hasty and they ap pointed a committee to take the mut ter under advisement. This coinuill tee made suggestions of several changes and the bill was given a sort of general endorsement. Then II was decided to ask the tax commission to hold another session In .Inly in con Jiincton with this committee of the clerks for the purpose of going over the bill again. Then another lot of printed copies of the bill as revised will he distributed. The coniniltt.ee representing the clerks at the July meeting will he (he same that was appointed to suggest changes at the meeting here and con sisted of the following gentlemen : F. W. Sweeney of Cherokee, H. Ilughll t( Waubiinsoe, A. M. Denny of Wlch Ity. (ieorgo V. Sloan of Cowley, mid TI.( Marshall of Klsworth. Denny Is air-ex county clerk who served several .vesrs and then served four years more as enmity treasurer. f)n account of this service he Is famllllar with all the details of levying and collecting ! i axes, aim ror mis reason lie was placed on the committee. Alter disposing of the tax quest ion .which was done Friday morning the discussion turned chiefly to the sub jects of the new election law and good roads. These topics wero quite thoroughly threshed over, but no rec ommendations word made. . Thursday night they attended the theatre In a body and were given seals In the boxes together. Then they tliiished their deliberations In time to take the evening trains home Friday. At the' meet lug of the clerks they gave auditor George Cole a tine com. pllniont by the passago of the follow ing resolution of endorsement : "We the county clerks of Kansas, In an nual meeting assembled, heartily ex press (air most hearty and sincere ap preciation of the lion. Gonrgo K, Colo for the many kindnesses and courtesies lie has extended to us as county clerks and for his presence a 'id valuable assistance at our meet ing and work of our organization, and further commend him lo tho peo ple of this great Stat o as an nplght honorable gentleman, a faithful mid elllclent public olllcer, bold and cour ageous In the discharge of his duties however unpleasant t hey might be, watchful of the expenditures of the public moneys, always quick and elllclent In the equitable adjustment of tho (oiilllctlng Interests of tins Slate and Its subordinate municipal ities, and well wort by of advancement o any position of public trust to which he may aspire, or to which the public Interests uniy call him In the future. REFORMATORY ACCIDENTS, Two Last Waak, Neither of Whloh Wera Fa tal but Appeared to ba Serious. There were two accidents at. the reformatory tho last of thowcek, nel tlier of which were very serious how ever, yet sulllclont to make a couple of tho Inmates considerably sore for a few days. The first one happened ti a boy by tho name of Heed who was working on tho new cell block, Threo of the boys stepped on a cor tain plank of a scaffold at one time and the weight was a little more than it would hear. . It broke and let them down. Heed struck on his head and received quite a severe gash on tho scalp. Ho was unconscious for some time and was at tlrst thought to be seriously hurt. This would not lie an unreasonable supposition us he fell nearly 11 f teen feet. However he Is now getting along nicely. The other accident occurred the next day, Saturday, when a team started to run with an Inmate named Lucien Scott. The wagon came lo pieces and let him have quite a had fall. When lio was picked up It was thought ho had some broken bones, but ho too Is coming out of the scrape with only soino bad bruises. Tho reformatory board Is now In session, but lias no especial business before It, most of their deliberations being devoted to the allowing of bills. The enrollment, at tho Institution now 1s about 2I0. This is somewhat less than for some time past. The number has been reduced by the Christinas paroles. RECIPROCITY, liverymen Help Eaoh Other Recover Their Stolen Property. There is a liveryman at Havllaud who with .!. H. McVay of this city seem lo be believers In the doctrine ol reciprocity. About a counle of months ago one of McVay's teams was stolen ami the thief drove It to Ilavlland where he put It In Cook's barn. McVay got on the trail and Willi tin; assistance of Cook got the team, Last week a team was stolen from Cook and driven lo this city where It was placed in McVay's barn. Cook came here and with the assist ance of McVay found the team In South Hutchinson. The thief how ever had tied. Hut he got a livery man there to drive blin to a little, place reported as .Durham where he took the train and is no doubt safe out of harms way, at least for the. present. "Wlio Is that good-looking fella r talking?"' asked a southwest Missouri tenderfoot, of whom Editor Mitchell, of the Henry county Republican, tells of a citizen of St. Joseph, during the gathering of Republican newspaper men In that city recently. "That,'' was the reply, "Is Erast rains F.us taehius Kplenldes Mc.llaisey, a Creek Indian chief of the northwestern tribe of Moilocs. lie Is a noted med icine man, named after some of Ills grandfathers, who have been a long lime dead.

A new suit has been commenced In t lie State supreme court In the con troversy over the consolidation of school dist I rets in several instances which was al tempted by means of special bills In the last legislature. There were three or four of these bills introduced and pushed I brunch. One consolidated several dlslrlcls In the neighborhood of lliihler, ano ther some at Haven, and still another some districts north of Slckerson.
