if i 5 rr I' Levant Laurels. Levant, Nov. 21. Nice weather. Thanksgiving turkeyi are'getting big and fat. Farmers are fast winding up the winter wheat question. The farmers "alliance" move question which was tojiave been discussed here last Friday was rather slim. The Rev. J. V. Haglerwill occupy the pulpit here next Sunday morning. Rock Island pay car. Wendesday, caused emplyees at this point to have that usual "once a month you know'' smile. Peanuts are now being gathered in with care, and reports so far show a very nice yield for experiments this year, Rev. Brown (Dunkard) discoursed to a large congregation last Sunday morning. Rev. Brown always gets a good crowd when it's known he will preach. J. C. Wilson, who has been having a bad time with neuralgia in his face, is out again, and, to give it as we got it, he can now blow his whistle with the regu lar bell attachment. The infant daughter of Frank Haskins is quite ill, so ill in fact that Mr. Haskins, who is in Hebron, Xeb., has been tele graphed for and is expected home to- i morrow. Dr. Beaver has the little one in chaJge. J. D. Barton, who has a claim five miles south of town, left for Beatrice, Xeb., Monday last and will remain with his son at that place this winter. Mr. Barton is a man of 68 winters and hardly able to weather our K. B's. Our most worthy J. P., Robt. Waters, performed his ilrst marriage ceremony (Batlinger-Kovar) last Tuesday in a man ner which would have made an old adept turn green with envy, and while Mr. Waters has no real estate in Levant to maikct, he still insists in booming the town. James Hughes, who has just lately re turned from Illinois, is reported to be quite low with typhoid-pneumonia. Later we learn that Mrs. J. D. Hughes, mother of James, has been taken with the same di sease but both are resting well to-day. Dr. Beaver has both cases in charge. The usual good old-fashioned time which follows all happy events in Kansas was canied out to thelettei at the resid ence of Mr. Kovar Tuesday eveuing where the light fantastic was tripped in to the wee stna hours of morning. A large attendance, excellent music, a bountiful spread and cverbody happy, were.the main features. Married: Batlinger-Kovar. One of the most rccheiche affairs of the season in Northwestern Kansas was the mai riageofMr. John Batlinger and Miss Annie Kovar, at the residence of the bride's parents at Levaut, Tuesday ev ening November 19th, Robt. Wateis, J. P., officiating, nearly one hundred relat ives and friends of the family being present. An elegant wedding supper was served immediately after the cere mony, after which a display of wedding presents was made. The bride and groom being the recipients of a large number of handsome and useful presents. Mr. Batlingei is a young man of 25 years and one of our most entei prising homestead ers while Miss Kovar of 20 summers is one of our very nicest young ladies, and we join with other numerous friends in wishing them a long and happy life.

About Concerning tlfe sugar industry in Kan sas, Senator Plumb says: I have been vis iting the sugar plants of Attica, Medicine Lodge and Conway Springs, and before returning home will see all the plants be ing operated. I am greatly surprised at the wonderful achievement over last year I find. When I, with others, a few years ago, commenced to insist on part of the appropriation for aiding in sugar making to come to Kansas to ass'st in an experi ment, we had little argument to produce. Then it was theory, now it has changed to facts. The results as will be shown by the reports of the year, will be an argu ment in and of itself far more potent than all the theories ever invented to lead to all former appropriations. The mills I have visited have made 500,000 pounds of sugar, and at the end of the season will show to their credit 1,00 ',000 'pounds. The other mills of the state may produce more than another 1,000,000 pounds, which,it will be remembered, is a remar kable gain over last year. Then the most encouraging thing about the whole busi ness is that this year the cost of. produc tion has been so radical!' decreased that it begins to look like business to engage in the sugar business. When it gets to a business basis manv more mills will be started, and Kansas will be famous for its sugar as well as for some other things, and it is not only in the making of sugar that I find cause for encouragement, but also in the production of cane. The cane is very fine, yielding better than was even anticipated. As to quantity, it was sup posed two or three years ago that nine and ten tons per acre was the limit, but this year Southern Kansas has many acres showing ten and fourteen tons. As to quality it has been impioved quite rapid ly, while 12 to 13 percent a few yearsago was the bes ever analyzed, I am credita bly infoimed that at Sterling, where the improvement of cane is made a specialty, it has been increased to 20 per cent, the highest ever known. In the plants I have visited the operators tell me that the- quality this year is much better and is observed in the results. Oh, yes! I think Kansas will get au othei appropriation for next year of $85, 000 for sugar making appropriated. Last year Kansas got about ?G0,000. Next year I think it will be easier to get an ap propriation than it was last year, and also we will be able to get more of it. The state could use to advantage $100,000, but what it will be possible to get remains to be seen." The Course of the Cronin Defense. The defense in the Cronin case have a hard hill to climb, and the terrific bur den of proof against them is a heavy load to carry. They have not even the discretion as to which course to take, but must follow the only one left open te them the elder "Weller's "helleyby" route. They may be able to stumble along ou this cour&e with some show of success, because the prosecution has not produced a witness to testify that the defendants murdered Dr. Cronin, nor even that any one murdeied him. It has failed to catch any of the de fendants on the hook of directlevidence, to change the figure, but it has them all apparently so safe in the net that at this writing there is no way of escape in view. The state's evidence is all in and may readily be summed up. On the night of May 4 Dr. Cronin was seen by several people. He was never seen again by his friends. That evening he was summoned by a man drivirig a white horse and rep resenting himself as an emissary of O 'Sullivan, the ice man. The driver has never been heard from, but the livery man let him have the white horse and the rig on recommendation of Coughlin, at that time a detective. A trunk stained with blood was found on the road to the Carlson cottage. It was identified as the one sold Simqnds, who furnished the cottage. Seventeen days later Cronin s body was discovered not far away in a catch basin. The Carlson cottage was rented mys teriously by Martin Burke under an as- cuuiuuiuicuuiasa nome, DUt lor a few days. It must have been rented for some occasion. What was the occasion? The cottace was abandoned dlrprtlc after May 4. Blood stains marked the floor; an attempt to blot them out with paint failiug,to obliterate them Burke, who rented tha cottage, was arrested at Winipeg with a ticket to Liverpool in his possession. A satchel purchased at the same time as the trunk kwas missinc. It was found a week or so ago in a sewer, along with clothes of Dr. Crouin, blood stained, and with his surgical instru ments. On the night of May 4 a washwoman passing by the Carlson cottage saw a carriage and a white horse draw up in front of it and a heavy man get out, take a small satchel or medicne case, enter the cottage and then she heard someone cry "O, God; O, Jesus," and then seme thing fall heavily. On the same eyening a milkman saw Kunze and Coughlin drive to the cottage. This is the evidence. ;Dr. Cronin was murdered at the Carlson cottage May 4. Coughlin, Burke and O'Sullivan must have been accomplices of the murder. Against Kunze the evidence is also strong. The plan of the defense will be looked for with interest And if the de fendants are all found guilty and hanged, justice will not yet be done. They were instruments of bigger men. Who were the rich conspirators? Topeka Capital, t BASE-BALL. Players Sign With the National league and the Flayer' -League Laughs. New York, Nov. 19. There are now twenty-eight players signed with the new league and favorable reports are being received every day. According to reports the National League will soon present a statement to the public saying that the players have been given every thing they asked of the old organization and that their desertion is unjustifiable. The Player's League men laugh at this and ask: "How much would the magnates have given us if we had not taken a decided stand? Had we delayed action until their meeting at the close of the season we would have been at their mercy. A base-ball league cannot be organized in a day. They let their op portunity go by ignored."
