Store Entered by Robbers md J Larre Onintllv nf finnd ?tnlrn I Llcbty Bros.' ueoeral mercbandise store, the Big Racket, was ourglarized Saturday oinbt. Eleven uuderyar- merits, Ave vr six pnir f sun, 10 revolvers aod a quantity ot cartridjffS, some Jewelry, aress goods, several pairs of pants aod about $40 iu silver weie stolen. There is no clue to the iruKlv pa'ties. 1 he burglars entered the store oy taking the glass out ot the rear door the clothing department. They were probably two hours In tue store, as go;ids In every department and in every corner of the store were disar ranged next morning. The floor was covered with burnt matches, snowing that they had worked boldly. The robbery was probably commit ted between 12 aod 2 o'clock. Messrs Llcbty left, ttie store about 10S0 or 11 o'clock. The incandescent gaslight was burning as usual over tbe cashier's desk, and the robbers certainly worked for awhile in the full glare of the light and in view of anyone who passed the flutt. The $40 in sliver was niaden in shoe box to a narrow aisle back of the cashier's dc-k. Every shop box in the rack was out of its plce more or less, showing that the Mbbers must have known of the prac tice of hiding money in the shoe boxes, and had shaken al! the boxes In searching for it. The robbers showed a preference fur red dress goods. Two red skirts which they had stolen and tied up were left in the clothing department, probably haviug been overlooked in their hurry to leave. Every drawer in the cashier's dek was ransacked, but li.ey contained coining of value. Nothing was stolen from the grocery department unless a few cigars and tobacco. Burnt matches the next m irnlng showed that ttiey had been looking them over. It is impjssible to tell whether any was taken or not. The revolvers taken were 32 and 33 calibre. The shoes were of the sizes of 8, 8 and 9. Toe stolen undergar ments, eleven in number, were 30 in size as to the drawers, and 40 as to the shirts. The pants were from 32 to 34 In size. While the general nature of the robbery indicates that it was the work of Drofessionals, the familiarity with t he store aod the knowledge of the exict location 0: the more valuable goods indicates that it wasthewurkof home talent. Still, the officers haven t sufficient evidence to settle this qu-otmn in their own minds, but they are working hard on the case aofl may soon develoD a clue that will leid to the arrotofthe i?iiiltv rarties. Messrs. Lichtv's loss is $100 at leit, and may go $200 or more. I BUY A M,pierlForiesri BEFORE THE ASSORTMENT IS BROKEN.

Negroes of Kansas, who sympathize with those of their race in southern states whoaredeniedrigbtof suffrage, do not realize that they are living under a state constitution which does not 8llow them to vote. The Kansas constitution, adopted at Wyandotte io the year 1361, says that "all white male citizens who have resided in the state six months shall be permitted to vote." In 1866, when there were only 30,000 votes In the state, an attempt was made to amend this paragraph of tbe constitution by knocking out the woid "white.'1 Tbe proposition was voted on and defeated by 10,000 votes. xhe Union Pacific railway has an Immense clay ballast pit at Lawrence, Ks., and furnishes ballast for other railroads all over tbe country.
