- A WIFE BEATER FIXtD -$500.
Former Butler Boy in a Disreputable
Role.
Kansas City 8tar, 18th.
Thomas W. Sellers, a printer, was
fined $ 300 this morning in police
court for having beaten his wife, Em-
in a.
Tie wiTTbe in the workhouse one
year unless he pays.
Sellers was employed In a printing
J office on Delaware street. His wife
'CWed in an office In the New Ridge
? building nd also did her own house
' wo. k. SI,., ,v ,h Infer than usual last
Thursibn' evening so thut when her I

ofh.rsi!k-sLirts ,.d three waists
in , ...i i.i, k
ing a few pieces of furniture. Mrs.
Sellers escaped from the house, 911
Charlotte street and ran to police
headquarters for protection. She re-
mained that night with Mrs. Patti
Moore, the police matron, and before
leaving said sbo was afraid to have
her husband arrested. But t he police
had no such delicate scruples and
Sellers was arrested Saturday even
ing and held in default of $100 cash
bond.
Sellers' testimony in police court
was something out of the ordinary.
IJsuallj the most hardened wife
eater expresses contrition and says
. '. Jbvs temper got the better of his judg-
V ment. Not so Tom Sellers.
. I'l think 1 was perfectly justifled.in
', doing as I did," he declared.
'What's that?" demanded the city
attorney in amazement, "you. think
you were justified in beating this
little woman and in burning her
clothing?"
. 'Yea sir, I do. When I came home
Bhe had Just reached there. Supper
- wa not ready. She said she had
- been delayed by extra work. She
;was sick, but I thought she had been
'drinking. Then J got my 'Irish' up
and you know the rest."
V . Five or sfx persons, one of whom
Ciad known Mrs. Sellers for twenty
f yean, testified to her good character
anJ reputation. Judge Brady then
..fined Sellers $300.'

S1M0X-ITKE REPUBLICAN'.
It will be of interest toMissouriars,
w ho have for some time endured a
lobster organ's palpably slanderous
cries of Democratic fraud, to observe
just what a chaste- Republican ad
ministration will do when it has free
and uninterrupted Bway which it
has iti Philadelphia.
The outside world 1ms long been
convinced thut Philadelphia present
ed a specimen of ring rule scarce) v
rivaled in the annals of corruption.
Commenting upon the frauds in
last week's election the Now York
Evening Post says:
Iu 1900 McKmly reci ived 1,738
votes iu the Third Ward. This is a
quarter of tin? city where the nonula
tion uiujiuishes year by year, rathf r
thau increases, yet the returns gave
-L'emiypncker .i.o jt) vote, more than
double the number received by Ale.
Kiuley two years before. In the
Fifth Ward, which is also oue of sta
tionary population. McKinlty receiv
ed 1.0G7 votes iu H00. wliile Pcntiv
packer is credited with 5,170 this
year. The total vote in these two
wards in 1900 wns 5,470. The total
vote as given this year is 9,500, an
increase of more than 4,000 Such
unblushing frauds speak for them
selves.
fni T-i .1 t. .
iuese nepuoncan "gams wen-
made without anv Democratic loasc:
in fact the Democratic vote was
stronger than at the last Presidential
election. Philadelphia papers say
that 110 effort is made at conceal
ment, but that fraud is the open
boast of Republicans,. The total of
fraudulent votes is placed at eighty
thousand by a Pennsylvania Repuo
lican paper.
To enrich the gang at the expense
of government is the leading princi
ple of the Philadelphia ring.' Laws
are pervrted, everything available
ia subsidized, franchises and favors
are sold at fixed rates.
One or two characteristic instances,
moreT particularly resembling the
deeds of the n-cent St. Louis boodle
gangs, serve to illustrate the ring's
cha a?ter. These are but a few of
the instance openly discussed by
Philadelphia citizens.
John Waua maker is said to have
offered to pny two million dollars in-i
to the city treasury for the use of the
city in consideration of a certain
street railwaj franchise; bnt theine

Not long ago a large manufacturer 'should the contention of the state be

the policy-shop man appeared as
chief witness for the State.
K lias not U-en a great while since
a wealthy I'hiladelphian's handsome
silk lined overcoat was stolen at, a
ball. The offender in this case prov
ed to be a city magistrate. One by
one six other magistrates were re
quested to issue a warrant churning
him with the theft. They stood by
him to a man, refusing the warrant;
and the 'incident was closed.
