The Van Fosseu Wilcox Loan and Iteal Estate Bank, of Fort Scott, Bourbon county, Fall Creek Live Stock and Land Company, of Wellington, Sumner county, and the Union AC route Court Urama. The city court room was comforta-blv filled, but with a different class of people than are generally brought inside the railing to answer to the charge of assault and battery. The only case of importance was the one against Walter Tate, CHARGED WITH FIGHTING. Last Saturday evening a social dance was given at the residence of Mrs. Mundy, who lives at No.

11 Clme street, and a large of young people were on hand to hare a good time and celebrate the occasion for all there was in it. Early in the evening the most genial spirit prevailed, but a little later, Walter Tate arrived, and among the party he recognized a man by the name of PASHAW, WHO HAT) recited hard storie? about him that he desired to have a settlement for. Mr. Pashaw was sitting in the parlor, about as close up to the ''idol of his heart" as was agreeable, when Mr. Tate approached him and called him out.

Tate said, "I have heard you have said so ami so about me', when Pashaw said, ''right you are." "You're a said Tate, "a lid you are another" said Pashaw. An elapse of live minutes. After Mr. Pashaw had been sswept up, and found his girl, they started home. On leaving the house he remarked that he "would drink a quart of his eaeray'e blood yet," several names were called and they CAME TOGETHER AGAIN.

Both sides had friends and backing, and in the dark the matter got pretty badly mixed up, at least the test imony was in the court this morning; anyhow, Pashaw thinks he was STRUCK ON THE HEAD with a billey, and cried for help. Tate claims he had no billy and used nothing but his fist during the entire mellee. The girls, however, who were walking with Pashaw and his brother.say they saw Tate use abilly, and that they NARROWLY ESCAPED being struck themselves. A man by the name ofPhil.Slusher was lrequent-ly spoken of as one of the parties who caused the disturbance, but he could not be found, although a warrant was issued FOR HIS ARREST. City Attorney Quiuieu was detained at district court and could not be on hand this morning, so the evidence was taken and a fine of $15 assessed by Judge Arnold, which was promptly paid.

As soon as the trial was over Mr. Tate swore out a warrant for the arrest of Pashaw charging him with striking him (Tate) WITH A BILLY. The case will be Jheard to-morrow and judging from the scowles and remarks from the interested parties, there will be more than a ''quart of blood" drank by some one yet. Mr. A.

H. came up tiro ra Qbor to at cud the annual inectin: of the Kansas Funeral Directors Association to-day. R. Jones, grain exchange ou Seveuth street, buys and sells any and every tlnnvf. tf -WITH- One of the peculiar featnr in the opening ear is be importance of tne real estate transact and am og these the recent Stewart sale holds prominence.

The property re erred to is the former wholesale ore. whi-h Mrs. Stewart ha sold to 'iudge Hilton, and the price announced is he Juds with his uswa1 a Iroit -ess, did not make the purchase unt'l he had induced Mrs. Stew: rt to a'tertbe building so tha it could bt sed for o-rhc It is supposed that the ahove-m n-tioned price is fict tiou-, being probably int nd to increase the aliu- in public opinion. Hilt n'-? ob ect i to have a bnsis tor demanding hih lents, but it will hardly be behex tha he paid much more than one-half the above-mention -d sum.

This plat i a -t-n many strange mutations. It was orig uailv a i.egro irvini-g ound. for that part o- rhe suburb wa- then occupied by olored people. Humble, however, as the cba act of the cem ry mav have been, it was honor by the name of Nathan tie. the patriot py of the Kevolution.

The pris -n in which he pas his at night was in the a 1-jacent park, a id arter ids txeeution he was buried arong the colored people nnd, as hi5 grave va not marked, ts i entity was soon lost. After th Revo utin Broadway, whicn till then ended at lhe park, was openei up to what is now I nion square, and the bones of tne negroes were removed. The plat was so afterward occupied bv what th was a first-class hotel, called ashington Hall, and there Louis Napoleon was enteitaiued during his visit to America. The hotel was burned down a few years afterward, and the plat was s-old at auction, bringing vbo.OOO. I well remember this sale, and aho the surprise expressed when A.

T. Stewart was announced as the purchaser. He was then (14.) merely known as a thriving retailer, hut was not considered rich enough to make such a purcha-e. Stewart however had been making money steadily, and was probably rth a quarter million. He immediately ouilt an elegant marble store, which was thrice enlarged to meet the demands of an increasing business, until it reached its present enormous size.

Here Stewart developed the wonderful genius which made him the autocrat of trade, until he had purchasing-houses in all parts of the world and a half a dozen factories thus building up the 2-eatest dry-goods empire the world ever beheld. Here, also, were completed those immence real-estate transactions which gave Stewart such distinction in this specialty: but death put its sudden termination to all these grand schemes, and the man that created palaces foi trade and a palace for a home is now denied the poor hospitality of the grave. Alter Stewart's death his business rapidly crumbled, and this great warehouse stood va -ant for five ears. The loss of rent, together with insurance arid taxes, were equal to $.50,000 a year, and a quarter million was sunk in this manner. The jobbing trade had moved up-town, and the building was unfit foi any other use.

It was supposed at one time that Bennett would purchase the property for a new Herald building, but this project was ne er realized. It has ben suggested that one reason why he did not make this change is a superstitious idea that he mu-t not leave the place which his father selected lest the stood luck he inherited from tne old man might forsake him. The present building i-s far too small for the operation of The HcraUh and the inconvenience i-constantly increasing. No other disposition having been practicable, the Stewart warehouse was altered in the pre-ent manner, but the cost was almost equal to a reconstruction, and the ioh required two years and an expenditure of half a million. Stewart's name and memory are now completely obliterated from scene of his former empire, and we have a fresh lesson of the transitory nature of eait ly glory.

How impre sive this is to one who, like the writer of this, can remember spot before Stewart became its owner. I have thus the rise and fall of this great business empire. N. Y. Cor.

The dark, dreary dismal and dim dens through which Pope Gregory was ushered during his stay in Dodge City, and the bright, brilliant, buck-some and bully fellows that lead him, with the four hundred Invitations to quench his parching thirst, and the row of wrinkled features and pale faces that occupied the front seats in the church to "hoodoo" the speakers, is the story you want to hear.

"Cat's esh, one basin, ten cents. "Black cat's fiesh, one small basin, five cents. "Black doit's orrease, one tael, four cents. A St. Loan ''Stick," Some time ago a young man by the name of W.

M. Gilham came to this city from St. Louis, and at once entered into the employ of Messrs Traught Johnson, sewing machine men, who conduct their business at 97 East Seventh street. Gilmau was a first class canvasser, and at once made a good impression with his employers. He only worked about one week when he was taken down sick.

He had no money and promised Mr. Traught that if he would pay his board aud doctor bill while he was sick, he would work it out as soon as he was able. This Mr. T. did, but last nigiit the young man endeavored to leave town unbeknown to anyone and was detected.

He had been out of bed but a few days, and yesterday came down to the office and borrowed saying that he wanted to get some medicine, but instead of this he was after mony io pay railroad fare, and had packed his trunk and sent it to the depot, where it was promptly attached by Detective Whitfield. The young man has not been seen, but is probably in the city yet. Mr. T. wil' have his board, medicine and doctor bill to pay, which will aggrigate about $100.

A man who will desert a friend in an instance of this kind deserves no pity. OFFICE BLOCK, ANSA TOPEKA, One hundred part Hakinjr Powder.

NEW Who stole the march? Last Sunday evening Mr. Wm, Tweeddale drove to the congregational church to attend evening services, and left his horse which was hitched to nis phaeton, tied near the south door. After the meeting he discovered the animal, phaeton and all missing, aud concluded at once it had been stolen. Yesterday the sheritf and city marshal were notified and postal cards were printed and sent all over the State, offering a reward of 50 for the return and Cap-tore of the thief and outfit, Last evening the horse showed up ot its own accord, and probably never had been stolen at all, merely broke loose and strayed about the city. More likely though some Topeka dude was strolling along that way and seeing the horse and buggy, loaded in his latest mashjold her it was his outtit.

and took her a ride. Perhaps it was used by a bridal party, who drove to the suburb minister and listened to the "thou-art-now-man-aud-wife" racket. Anyhow it is very evident that some one stole a march on Mr. Tweeddale, aud had a buggy ride his expense. Cndcrtakern' Convention, The annual meeting of the Kansas State Undertakers' Association convened in this city at 4 o'clock this afternoon, at the office of F.

Near by Carlo and a by were siz lin in th frying pan, while on spits hanging v- the tire were other ayed victims waiting for a like treatmeut. 1 he cats had been skinned whole, and the meat was whiter than any chicken meat that I ever saw.

R. URCHEL otters his MEAT MARKET FOR SALE to make room for a TLL STOCK OF GROCEBIES of North Topeka, praying for my removal. The following are facts: The petition was gotten up on the South side by my political enemies who know nothing of my work in the school on the North side. It was put into the hands of Sauford Griffin who does not live in the corporation. He, (a preacher) forged fteen names to the petition, aud their written statements to that effect are now on file in the office of the Board.

Nine-teen of the signers live out of the cor- poratiou, twelve of them have no i children and two of them have signed a wrtten statement that they signed! it under false pretense and their sta-j ment is on file. There are forty-nine names to the peti-l tion, thirty-six of these were fraudulently presented, leaving only 13 who may have signed it, and 4 of I these have no children, and those who know them best assure me that about 8 ot the 13 did not sign the pe- tiion. The Board is satisfied that the! whole thing is a personal aud politi-cal matter, and will retain me a principal of Lane school, as the pat- rons of the school as well as both the Board and Superiuieudent are well satisfied with my work.
