THE KANSAS CITY JOURNAL,. SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 5, 1899.
ALMOST LYNCHING NEIGHBORHOOD EMURED OVER A KEGRO'S ACTIONS. NO ASSAULT WAS ATTEMPTED CHARGED THAT HE TOOK LIBER TIES "WITH A CHILD. Jolin Shaffer, Xeirro Janitor at "Wash ington Street M. E. Church, - Tlirnaked by a Member and 1'urnned 1" an Indig nant Crowd. John Shaffer, the negro janitor of tho "Washington Street Methodist church, at Thirteenth and Washington streets, is locked tip at No. 4 police station, charged with mistreating the 7-year-old daughter of J. M. Tibbals, an electrician employed In the American Bank building. The of fense is alleged to have been committed thrco weeks ago to-day in the Sunday school room of the church, but the circum stances connected -with the affair woro not made known to tho police until .yesterday afternoon. Shaffer's arrest then followed, after he had been given a sound thrashing by Dr. G. N. Nicholson and pursued through the streets for a distance of two or three blocks by the pastor of the church and sev eral other persons, who joined in the chase without knowing why the- negro was wanted. The little daughter or Mr. and Mrs. Tib bals has been a regular attendant at Sab bath school at the Washington Street , Methodist church. She had been late on two or three occasions and three weeks ago to-day she begged her mother to per mit her to go earlier than had been her custom. When the little child reached the chinch there was no-person there with the , exception of the negro janitor. It is charged that Shaffer, while playing with the child, took undue liberties with her. It Is not charged that he made any at tempt to criminally assault her, but that Jie mistreated her In many ways until she began crying. Then he Is said to have told lier that he would kill her If she told her parents how he had acted toward her. The conduct of the negro frightened -the child and she said nothing about the af fair until yesterday. She made the remark to her.raother that she did not want to go to Sabbath school to-day, and when pressed for a reason told her of the actions of Shaffer. , Dr. Nicholson, who boards at the home of the Tlbbals, heard' the child's story and he went at once to the father of the girl, who was at work In the basement of the American Bank building. Tlbbals could not leave his work and he sent Dr. Nicholson to see Rev. Mr. ICoontz, pastor of the church. Dr. Nicholson and the pastor went at once to the church and found Shaffer at work. The negro admitted that, he had taken a fancy to the child and played with her on the occasion stated by her, but denied that ho had tried to harm her. Dr. Nicholson became enraged at the ne STO and assaulted him with his clenched lists.. Shaffer made his escape from the building and ran south on Washington street to Fourteenth and then west to Penn street, where he fell Into tho hands of two policemen. Dr. Nicholson and Rev. Mr. Koontz ran after the negro, 'and a half dozen pedestrians who were attracted by the negro's cries joined In the Chase. Tlb bals hurried home and was on his way to the church with a party of mends when the negro was captured. Had he got hold of, Shaffer before he had been turned over to the officers It would probably have been necessary to call an undertaker's cart in stead of a patrol wagon. Mr. Tlbbals said last, night that his lit tle daughter told hlm'-that Shaffer picked' her up in his arms and kissed her. Then he carried her Into the basement of the church. She began crying and Shaffer re leased her only when he thought he heard some one enter the church. Be fore letting the little girl go. it Is alleged that he took out a long bladcd pocket knife and after flourishing it in her face, threatened to- kill her if she told her par ents anything when .she got home. The child was on the point of telling her mother what had happened several times, but each time she said the ugly looking janitor, with knife In hand, made her afraid to tell even her parents what had happened. Shaffer .refused to talk after being locked up. He was booked for investigation and a state warrant will be Issued for him to morrow. The fijther of the girl and Dr. Nicholson wore beside themselves with rage when they went to the church yesterday after noon, atT If they had been able to capture the negro before he fell Into the hands of the police, there would probably have been n lynching in the residence district out en Penn street. Caught' lit the Act. Thomas Jordon was arrested by Officer West In Noland's saloon at Fifth and Broadway at 5 o'clock yesterday morning while attempting to rob a drunken man who was in the saloon. Jordon was caught In the act of relieving a man named Harris of a cheap stud and was turned over to Officer West by the bartender In the sa loon. Harris refused to prosecute Jordon and ho was released. Will Hold Revival Meeting!. On Thursday, February 9. Rev. Mr. W. 31.

The study of physicians, the experiments of chemists, the loudly advertised preten sions of o,uacks, have been for years ex pended in one direction: to find a pile cure that will cure. The results have been a number of harm lc, and In most cases useless, ointments, fcunnotitorles and even internal rpmciM' which the public have weighed In the bal ance of experience and found wanting; nearly all cf them gave tome relief, but nothing approaching a radical cure resulted from tlioe preparations. Tiio remedy required is one that Immed-latelj- Mops the pain so severe In most cases of piles, and then by contracting the f-mall blood vew-els (capillaries) to their normal size, produces a radical cure by re ducing and finally absorbing the tumors and healing the inflamed, raw mucous sur faces. Until two years ago. no such remedy had been produced, but at that time suppository wah placed upon the market, which has slnco proven itself to be the long sought permanent cure for this common and dis tressing trouble: it has rapidly become fa mous throughout the United Stares and Canada, and Is now sold by nearly all drug gists under the name of the Pyramid Pile Cure. It is now tho best known, because Its merit and afeiy have advertised it wher ever used. It has been advertised by word of mouth, from one sufferer to another jwople who had tried everything else, even submitting to painful and dangerous surgi cal operations without avail, finally have found that piles may bo cured without pain and without expense, practically, as the Pyramid Pile Cure is sold for the nominal price of CO cents and $1.00 per package. Tho Pyramid instantly stops all pain and at the same time contain no cocaine mor phine or narcotics: the acids and healing proierties contained in the remedy speedily remove, cause a nealthful. natural con traction and absorption of tumors: It will euro any form of rectal trouble except can cer and advauced fistula, which, bv the way. nearly always result from neglecting proper and timely treatment for piles. As' above stated, can furnish you with the Pyramid Pile Cure at SO cents for or dinary size, or $1.00 for large package.

Boarders- Who Threw Doit in the Eyes of a Landlady Until Justice Rons Told Her Differently. The deepest, darkest "con game" yet recorded came to light yesterday when Mrs. E. B. Gibbons, who lives near Sixth street and Broadway, called on Justice Ross for some legal advice. Mrs. Gibbons Is a good, honest woman, but no lawyer. She keeps a rooming house and, unfor tunatelyperhaps through natural selec tionhas acquired a number of lodgers who Impose upon her credulity and horror of any litigation. 'When one of these unregenerates got be hind in his room rent and when gently .reminded by his landlady of the fact, ha proceeaeo to tod ner oi me aesire to press her claim. She said bo explained to her that she couldn't nut him out of his room without giving him ten days' notice. He also informed her of the enormous expense attendant upon filing a suit and of the trouble and expense she must go to to have his goods moved out on the street. After this prospect had been duly pictur ed to the awed mistress of the house, promises of an early remittance were thankfully received. Another roomer whose delinquency gave him cause for apprehen sion would let fall an occasional remark about the large bond a landlord had to give to insure the safe handling of a ten ant's goods in case they were put out and of the large fees the constable had to be paid for guarding the goods. This Insur ed him Immunity from duns for a week longer, at least. A man who occupied rooms with his family contracted an Ex emption bug-bear, which also served the purpose of Increasing his landlady's leni ency. He explained to her that a man working to support his family might run behind in his? rent to a certain amount be fore the law could Interfere to deprive him of his quarters. " Mrs. Gibbons, however, has a new lot of Information on hands now and the spe cial landlord "and tenant statutes evolved from the minds of- her unremitting room ers will no longer be of avail. IS H A DOCTOR? Board of. Health Cause Arrest of Dr. C. H. Osborne Case la Continued. i Dr. C. H. Osborne, of Kansas City, Kas.. was In police court yesterday morning to answer to a charge of practicing medicine without having filed a certificate with the board of health, as required by law. Dr. Osborne was arrested by Officer Lillls on a city warrant sworn out by the health au thorities. He was not ready for trial and the case was continued until next Tuesday. Dr. Osborne lives In Kansas City, Kas., and has considerable practice on this side of the line. He has signed death certifi cates that have been sent to the health de partment In due form as a practicing physi cian. He has never filed a certificate to practice with the board of health in this city, and failure to do so is what caused his arrest. Twice Judge Burnham asked Dr. Osborne In police court yesterday morn ing whether he was a graduate of a recog nized medical school, and both times he made an evasive reply. About all he would consent to say was that he had been li censed to practice In Kansas. WANTS HIS' DAUGHTER. J. K. Dyer, of Guthrie, Claims That She Was Kidnaped From Him at Sednlln. J. K. Dyer, of Guthrie. O. T., has written to Chief of Police? Hayes requesting him to Institute a search for his 9-year-old daugh ter, Bessie, who, he claims, was kidnaped from him at Sedalla a short time ago. Dyer states that he and his wife separated several months ago and she took with her their 5-year-old son. leaving the little daughter to make her home with her father. Mrs. Dyer came to Kansas City and her husband continued to make his home at Sedalla until he removed to Guth rie recently. A short time ago the little girl was stolen from the home of relatives in Se dalla, where she was living, and her father thinks she was brought to Kansas City by her mother. Dyer alleges that his wife was brought to Kansas City by a Santa Fe conductor. He has asked the police to locate his child and notify him so that ne can come on ana oDiain possession ot her. The police will let the couple settle 'their troubles In court. FIELDING BANKRUPTCY CASE. Creditors Refuse to Compromise Claim son a Basis of 50 Cents on the Dollar. An unsuccessful effort was, made yester day by the bankrupt firm of I. H. Field ing & Co. to compromise with Its cred itors, on a basis of SO cents on the dollar. An open session of the federal court was held all day, and the question was dis cussed at length by Mr. Fielding and his attorneys and the attorneys who repre sent the creditors, without a conclusion be ing arrived at. The sale of the stock by United States Marshal Durham Is set for to-morrow, but it is possible that the firm will ask for a postponement In order that another effort at a compromise may be made. WHOLESALE TRADE STEADY. Bradstreet'a Reports Business' in a Very Satisfactory Condition Last Week. Bradstreet's reports the wholesale trade of Kansas City for the past week to have been steady. Many spring orders are be ing booked, the bookings showing an In crease over the same week of last year.

Young- Joseph Roberts Permitted to Plead Guilty to Petit Larceny and Take Three Months. Joseph Roberts, the young man who con fessed the other day to entering three dwellings in the city, pleaded guilty yester day before Justice Ross to a charge of petit larceny brought by W.(F. Howard, IKS Charlotte rtreet. where he had stolen some Jewelry. The othr parties would not prosecute and the charge was reduced from a felony to a misdemeanor on account of the young man's previous good character and his evident intention to reform. Tho Justice sentenced him to three months In Jail. Grip Prove Fatal to a Child. The 4-year-old son of the Very Rev. John S. Moody, archdeacon of tho Episcopal church of the diocese ot West Missouri, died at his home. Thirty-third and High land avenue, yesterday, from the effects of the grip. The funeral will be held from the home Monday afternoon at 2 o'clock and will be conducted by Bishop AtwilL SANITARY MUDDLE KAXSAS WITHOUT ANY LIVE STOCK BOARD. LAWS SHOULD BE REVISED COLONEL J. G. M'COV EXPRESSES HIS VIEWS. Pop Board' Quarantine Line Has Not Been Promulgated and the Jicw Board Haa Sot Been Con firmed anil Has Taken Xo Action. "It Is high time that the sanitary laws of the state of Kansas were revised." said Colonel J. G. McCoy yesterday, the Kan-s-as state inspector at tho Rtock yards. Ho has just returned from the second an nual meeting of the National Live Stock Association at Denver. "At present," continued Colonel McCoy, "there is no sanitary board and the closed season began February 1 without a single inspector. Messrs. Bryden and Beal were appointed by Governor Leedy, Mr. Riddle holding over. When the special session re fused to confirm Leedy appointees, they went out of office, according to the Kan sas law, or at least the Interpretation thereof by a great many. Mr. Bryden re fused to contest the matter and declared he would have nothing more to do with the board. "Mr. Riddle, however, Induced Mr. Beal to act with him and they established a quarantine which cannot become effective until the governor promulgates it official ly by a proclamation. "In the meantime Governor Stanley has appointed Messrs. Campbell and Chamb erlain to take the places of Messrs. Bry den and Beal and refuses to promulgate any quarantine line, based upon the ac tion of the old board, acts which the new board, which has not yet been confirmed, might not approve." A distinguished and almost unprecedented honor was conferred upon Colonel McCoy and Colonel Majors, formerly of this city but now of Denver, and upon Mrs. Lillian M. Gregory, of the Kings and Queens of the Range, jof this city. They were made the three members of the honorary branch of the national association. The formation of the honorary branch, a sort of roll of honor, was proposed by ex-Congressman Dougherty, of Nebraska, and seconded in an able speech by J. W. Springer, president of the association. Colonel McCoy repre sents the pioneer stockman; Colonel Majors the pioneer freighter, and Mrs. Gregory was honored for her efforts in behalf ot the live stock Interests In the publication of her paper. Colonel Majors, who now lives in Denver, and is 83 years old, was formerly a member of the pioneer freighting firm of Russell, Waddell & Majors, who in early days did an immense business in freighting acrbss the plains, using at least 6,000 mules In their operations. Colonel McCoy declares that tho conven tion just closed will accomplish a great deal for the live stock interests of the West. "It was well attended," ho said, yester day, "and aHY the papers were ablo and timely. The glaring discrepancies In ratfs received a great deal of attention and will be remedied; the feed in transit rate will be made reasonable and universal. If the con vention carries out Its plans: the $2 terminal charge was attacked and a determined effort will be made to remedy the injustice." ST. GEORGES MISSION.
