hands and took an oath to weigh the eI

Impartial manner. Attorney Hale then pro

Protest AKnlnst n Powder Mill.
County Attorney Miller, at the request of
a number of property owners living in the
vicinity of tho old Turner smelter, upon
which site tho erection of a powder mill
is now in progress, has brought Injunction
proceedings in the court or common pleas
to enjoin the powder company from pro
ceeding any further with the work. The
Turner residents are highly Indignant over
the proposed enterprise and will vigorous
ly oppose It. They claim that should the
mill bo completed and placed in operation
It would place tho lives of many people
living near tho proposed plant In danger.
It Is claimed that the district schoolhouse
Is located within seventy rods of the pro
posed powder nnd djnamlte plant, whero
more than 100 children assemble dally. A
temporary n-stralning order was granted
jesterdav. and work on the building will
be discontinued pending the final hearing
of the case.

WHY SP0FF0RDWAS SHORT.
II and red of Unpaid Money Order,
Sonic Twent)-tno Years Old,
Washington. Dec. 9. An Investigation
now being made between tho ofilcUls of
the Congressional library and the ofilcitls
of the postoffice department promises to
throw a great deal of light upon the re
cently widely discussed shortage of for
mer Librarian Ainsworth R. Spofford. It
will be remembered that an lnvestigition
by the treasury department about .1 jear
ago showed Librarian Spofford to be about
JJO.000 short In his accounts. Few people
who knew- him looked upon this at tho
time as an thing more than an evidence
of clerical negligence In his dep irtment.
Now it appears that a large; ptrt. if not
all, or this deficiency, which Mr. Spofford
promptlj made good out of his own pocket,
will bo accounted for by a great batch of
old money orders, which the absent-minded
librarian forgot to cash. While" Mr.
Spofford was in office. Sir. Metcalf, chief
of the money order division or the post
office department, w'ould notify the librar
ian that there were orders on hand which
he should cash. Sometimes ho would get
a few in response to these notifications and
sometimes not. Since Mr. J. Russell Young
has been placed in charge of the library,
however, he and First Assistant Postmas
ter General Heath have made 11 sjs
tematic search of the old library records
and, tucked away In one place or another,
they have unearthed hundreds of old or
ders, which the former librarian had put
aside and apparently forgotten, and mere
are coming to light every day. Just what
the total will amount to has not jet been
established, but it probablv will come near
wiping out the discrepancies in Mr. Spof
ford's accounts. Some of the orders date
back twenty -two years, nnd onq of tho
largest was for $38. Many of these orders
have expired by limitation, but they will
all be paid by cash or warrant on the
treasury, and the money will be turned
over to Mr. Spofford up to the amount
that he has paid out In rectifying his own
RAISING A QUIBBLE.
Fractions Aldermen Rnlnr tue Point
That Weatport la ot Yet Le
There appears to be a difference of opin
ion among the aldermen touching the pres
ent status of the citj's new territory. Some
advance the opinion that tho cltj has no
right at this time to provide patrolmen,
firemen, or, in fact, to take anj steps in the
way of exercising Jurisdiction in the an
nexed territory, because the certified copy
or tho election result and of the amend
ments have not as jet been forwarded to
the secretary of state. Cltj Counselor
Mlddlebrook hold", however, that the ter
ritory was legally and properlj annexed tho
daj- of election. The subsequent proceed
ings, he snjs, are matters of form for the
preservation in 'an ofllcinl way of the elec
tion results. City Clerk Curry will to-day
begin the preparation of the certificate to
be forwarded by the major to the secre
tary of state. i
Comptroller Lund did not remove the
Westport property to the city hall jester
day and it is not known Just when he will.
Cltv License Insnector Earhnrt ml hiu
deputies jesterday began a canvass of the
new- territorj- to get all names of merchants
and others amenable to license taxes on tho
records. Many of the merchants nre dis
posed to protest afgalnst being placed upon
an equality with the dealers in the old
limits in this respect. The Westport saloon
keepers are rejoicing at tho result, how
ever, for their licences have cost $300. Thej
will now be reduced one-half. The liquor
dealers in the remaining sections are not so
well pleased, for they have not up to this
time been required to paj- a cltj- tax.
Plumbing Inspector Sieben sajs tnat. he
has not jet Jilted Westport to look over
the plumbing and sewage sjstem. He has
never receij-ed a report from any source
that the plumbing in anj- of the public or
private buildings there Is unanltnrj, but
states that the prespit cltj plumbing or
dinance will have to be amended to accord
with the sewase of Westport as the sewer
pipes are much smaller than thoe of Kan
sas Cltj-. Consequentlv restrictions will
have to be placed on tho character of tho
water turned Into the sewers there. Thu
Wetport council had been considering an
ordinance of such nature before the an
nexation. The auditing department of the cltv Is
rapidly getting its portion of the Westport
wo'k in shape. Chief Clerk Casey jtster
dnv secured the delinquent tax rolls for
1S93 and turned them oer to Treasurer
Green. They show about $1 200 personal and
real taxes to be due from that source.

Tho discussion developed the fact that
the cltj- had but one Inspector to pass upon
all work and that it was now- the general
custom of all plumbers to figure in at least
an extra daj- on all estimates to coer the
cost of delay in inspection. It was esti
mated that the plumbing work for 1S96, un
der the pending ordinance, would have pro
duced a re enue of rrom $4,300 to $3 000, a
sum moro than sufficient with which to
meet tho proposed expense and keep In

ANOTHER CUT TO COLORADO.
HATES MADE LOWER THROUGH
T1IAX TO KVNSAS CITY.
IlurlliiKton Reduces Clans Rates to u
Oasis of 4 Cents From CUlcnso
and 14 Cents From Missis
sippi to Colorado.
It was reported jesterday that tho Bur
lington had made another cut In class
rates from Chicago and tho Mississippi
river to Colorado common points, announc
ing a first class rate of 01 icnts rrom Chi
cago nnd 41 cents from the Mississippi river.
This Is 1G cents lower than the rates from
Chicago and the Mississippi to Kansas
Citj-, but It Is understood that the rate will
not applj- to Intermediate points. K.insaj
Citj- is in a doubtful position to Insist 0.1
such application, because the low- rates. If
so applied, would necessorilj- give much ot
Kansas the same rates as this. citj-.
At the offices of the Burlington It was
slated jesterdaj- that no official notice of
the reduction to a 01 cent basis from Chi-
Sago to Colorado had been received, but it
vas said the cut might have been mado
vlthout notltic itlon to the Kansas Citj- of
fice, as the Missouri river-Colorado rates
are not affected.
The report was credited bj- representa
tives of other hues, and the Rock Island
gave notice that it would not met the last
named rates of the Burlington from Chi
cago and tho Mississippi to Colorado.
The Burlington started the Colorado rate
fight, and Is said to be determined to carrj
It to the bitterest end. promptlj- meeting
anv reductions made bj- the steamship and
rail lines. The first class rate to Colorado
was $2u"i from Chicago. $1.S3 from St. Louis
nnd $123 from Kans is City when the war
started. Most ot tho Trans-Missouri lines
nre opposed to making further riductions.
and it is probable several of them will re
fuse to met the Burlington's pew rates,
preferring to allow It to handle the busi
ness, which can jield no profits under the
KANSAS "PACIFIC SALE.

Washington, Dec. 9. With the exception
of tho offer of $2.r.00.000 received some time
ago from tha Union Pacific reorganization
committee for the government's interest
In the Kansas Pacific, which was prompt
ly declined, tho covernment has received
no Intimation as to the purposes of the
committee with respect to the sale set for
December 1C. The government is now in
a position to bid at the sale, and but for
the resolution adopted bj- the senate to
day asking the president to applj- to tho
court for a postponement, there is no doubt
that it would hmo dono so. should the
committee hae failed to make an "accept
able offer. The senate resolution, how
ever, changes tho situation. Attorney Gen
eral McKenna will soon begin the prepara
tion of the nccessarj- papers in the case
and will at once ask the court to set a

motion for postponement. The attorney
has no doubt that the motion will be grant

FIGHT IN MILEAGE BUREAU.
The Vanderliilt Lines Fall to Force
ThroiiKh a Ilcsnlntlon Chang
ing llandllnc System.
Chicago, Dec. 9. At the meeting of the
mileage ticket bureau of the Central pas
senger committee, which was held to-day,
a fight de eloped ojcr the handling of the
interchangeable mileage tickets. The Iake
Bbore and the Michigan Central cham
pioned a resolution to alter the method In
which the tickets are sold at present. Tho
plan now In effect is for the traveler to
present his ticket to the ticket agent, an
nouncing how far he desires to travel, the
ticket agent tears from the mileage book
tha requisite number of miles and issues
In tVi trniplor n ttrVpt which Is COOd On
tho train. Tho Michigan Central and the
Lake Shore desired that tho interchange
able ticket be mnde good for transporta
tion when presented on trains, and a num
ber of the other lines objected to this.
There was the warmest kind of a fight
nnd It lasted for tho greater part or the
daj-. but the resolution was lost when the
matter came to a final vote, twentj of the
roads joting against It, and eight ror it.
CANCEL THROUGH TARIFFS.
ChtcBBO-St. Panl Lines Make Propor

Chicago. Ill , Dec. 9. Representatives of
tho freight departments of the Chicago-St.
Paul lines to-daj- decided to cancel all
tl-rough tariffs with Eastern roads, and to
lsuo in lieu thereof such proportional tar
iffs as will gie them one-third of the rul
irc gross rates to the Atlantic seaboard.
As a beginning It was determined to issue
a proportional tariff of 10.S cents on flour
shipped nt St. Paul or Minneapolis and des
tined to the Atlantic seaboard. This chargo
of 10 S cents from the Twin Cities to Chi
cago, added to rates which Kastem lines
are now secretly making, will make a
through rate lower than the 2T cent charge
now being made by the Canadian Pacific.

Republican-Courier, at Jefferson City,
lias Aot ProTen to Be Profit
Jefferson Citj'. Dec 9. (Special.) Tho
Republican Courier, the afternoon Repub
lican daily paper here, was sold to-day to
12. S. Link, the present business manager,
for a debt of Jl.lSO. The Republican Cour
ier was owned by a stock company of lead
ing Republicans here, who organized to
maintain a Republican dally at the stats
capital. As the paper received none of
the official state patronage, that being-,
controlled by the Democrats, the cost of
running the paper soon ate up the receipts,
and tho 13,000 of capital stock and a debt
of SLIM was created, for which the paper
was sold to-day.
The stockholders lost all they had In it
and scld the plant and paper for the In
debtedness. The paper will continue as a
Republican afternoon dailj- under the new
management, so the Republicans will still
have an organ at the state capital.
