Meeting Culled for Next
Thero will bo a mcetlns of the officers
of the Third regiment nt the armory
Tuesdny evening. The officers wilt tits
duss,tlid practicability of furnishing white
(duett trousers for the men for summer inl
iform wear. The oilly thins in the way Is
l(ho expense, but Colonel Slmond3 will have
Bomo Interesting figures on the matter
from local manufacturing houses. This will
put the boys of tho Third on an equal basis
with Uncle Sam's warriors in the hot re
gions of the country. It ii probable that
the suits will consist of regulation blouse,
white trousers and helmet. The latter will
probably be secured, as tho rcKlmcnt 1ms
used them for years, each company mak
ing Its own purchases. The result here
tofore has not been very charmlntr, owing
to tho variance between the styles se
cured by the different companies. The of
ficers will probably wear "Chaplain" suits
of white entire, minus shoulder straps.
At this meeting there will be some Inter
esting recruiting data reported by the
examining board. This board consists of
Captains Wngar and Klnncard and Major
Halley. rcglmentnl surgeon. The bo.ird

COURT ROOM FIGHT.
Attorney Si-breo Resents the Insult of XV.
A". Guthrie, nn Attorney of
The calm serendty that Is characteristic
of the surroundings In Judge Scnrrltt's di
vision of the circuit court was broken yes
terday by an animated but brief exhibition
of pugilistic science, in which Attorney V.
F. Guthrie, of Atchison, and Lawyer Frank
P, Sebrce, of this city, were tho partici
pants. The suit In which the First National Hank
of Frankfort, Kas., Is the plaintiff, and
Thomas T. Crittenden nnd Judgo U. II.
Stiles arc tho defendants, was drawing to
a close. Mr. Sebroe, representing the de
fense, hnrl finished his argument, and Mr.
Guthrie had not talked live minutes be
fore he said. "Gentlemen, in making this
statement Mr. Sebree told a lie."
Sebroe was standing in the rear of the
court loom talking to Lawyer Hair, and
did not distinctly hear the remark by the
gentleman from Atchison, but he was told
by a bystander what had been said, and
he at onee walked up to Mr. Gutnrle and,
interrupting him. Inquired .1 he had cor
rectly Interpreted his remark. Guthrie
paid no attention to Sebree, and the lat
ter again asked liim If ho had accused him
Mr. Guthrie promptly replied thnt that
was Just what he said, wheieupon Mr. Se
bree as promptly landed his heavy right on
Mr. Guthrie's temple. The latter would
have fallen, had lie not struck the stenog
rapher's table.liut, recovering himself, Guth
rie led out nt his opponent, but before the
blow landed Judge Scnrrltt, who did not
enre to pose as a referee In a nrls-o light,
Jumped over the railing squarely between
the combatants, and with the assistance of
Mnjor Warner nnd one or two of the Jur
ors tho aspirants for pugilistic honors were
When Judge Scnrrltt had resumed tho
bench he took occasion to seveioly tep
rlniand tho men, nnd on tho principle that
to pass the He Is equivalent to a blow,
fined Mr. Guthrie $i", and, because Mr.
Sebree took his case In his own hands In
stead of calling for tho protection of tho
court, he was assessed 510. Mnjor Wnrner,
nlthough not associated with Mr. Guth
rie In tho case, wiote a check for tho
amount of the Atchison lawyer's fine, and
Governor Crittenden paid Mr. Sobree's fine.
Mr. Guthrie Is a bright young lawyer
from Atchison, Kas., and at the last state
Itepubllcan convention came very near se
curing the nomination for attorney gen
eral. Ho has athletic tendencies, and
would have made It Interesting if the scrap
had been allowed to proceed. Mr. Sebree
camo here from Kansas about six yeats
ago, and is at present tho law partner of
City Counselor MeDougai. Ho la also a
handy man in matters athletic.
The Jury In the cae returned a verdict
for tho defendants. The Biilt was brought
to recover on two notes of $2,500 each. A
similar case, with the same plaintiff,
against Judge MeDougai, was decided for
