7:45 p. ni Santa Fe depot awaiting the arrival of the east bound passenger. There had been some colored folks from Wichita visiting in the city and as they intended returning home on this train their friends were on hand to see thera aboard the cars. It seems that some of the bucks were out on the platform talking about women when a remark was made by Tom Owens to which John Cunningham took exceptions. A wordy war led to blows and Cunningham drew a knife and gave owens rather a severe cut across the ribs.

Seeing what he had done Cunningham became frightened and ran down the track to the east, but was by officers and brought back. Pandemonium reigned supreme for a few moments, women fainted and there was a general blubbering and hubbub. Some of Owens' friends had a great notion to take Cunningham away from the police, and were only quieted by an officer drawing his revolver and caution ing them to keep back. Cunningham was safely lodged in jail and at his pre-liminary hearing before Justice Cannell was bound over to the district court in the sum of $200 to answer to the charge of assault with intent to kill. Not being able to furnish bond he was lodged in jail.

Owens is not badly hurt and will bo all right in a few days, Frank Mills, a colored man, was ar raigned before Justice Cannell's court this week on a charge of stealing wheat from a car on the Rock Island track on the 4th inst, Mills was caught in the act of taking the wheat and claimed he had purchased it from one of our mill men, but after he had given a discription of the man from whom he claimed to have made the purchase, it was found that this individual was in Oklahoma on that day. He was found guilty of grand larceny and bound over to the district court Being unable to secure bondsmen he was lodged in jail.

This was a matter of news to the members of the A. R. U. as they had not culled a meeting for Bun As some one had displayed their immaculate gall by assuming to cull a meeting of an organization of which they were not even a member, several of the A. R.

U. boys went to the park to gaze on the being who had presumed to assume so much authority. This notice also attracted a goodly number of our citizens to the park who believed the II. U. was to hold a pub lit; meeting there, and the subject under discussion would be the present railroad trouble.

In this they were disappointed as it was cne of the regular Sunday after noon meetings held at the Gazette read ing room, only it was transferred to the park. At the opening some time was consumed by Editor Foster and E. C. Clark in explanation of the A. R.U.

placard. Mr. Clark adndtted that he had placed the bulletin on the street cars and assumed the entire blame, but in the same breath attempted to relieve himself of the responsibility of error by Baying that Foster was to have invited the A. R. U.

to be present. While the apology, so far as its publicity was concerned, was satisfactory, the boys are not at all satisfied with outsiders using their organization asa means to attract a crowd for personal aggrandizement. There is a scheme back of it which is very thin and easily seen into. Clark, Eccles and Malcom were the speakers, and while some good points were presented, a few of the arguments were so far brought as to be of no use under present conditions. Everett Smitherman, who resides in the sand hills north of this city, was arrested Thursday morning by Constable Hodge on a charge of burglary.

The night before some one had broken into the coal office of Ed Odell and after breaking into the money drawer in the safe extracted about $15 therefrom This office has been often that Ed does not lock the outer door to the safe and very seldom leaves any money in the cash drawer. Ed suspicioned young Smitherman and went to Justice Can-nell'8 office and procured a warrant for him, but instructed Constable Dick Hodge to investigate before serving it, and if Smitherman was not the individual wanted he would pay the costs in the case. Dick done his work right and got a confession and part of the stolen money. Smitherman had some accomplices who are known and if not arrested by this time soon will be. In Justice Cannell's court he was found guilty of burglary and bound over to the district court.

As bond was not procured he was lodged in jail. Sidney Shipman, who lives with his grandmother, Mrs. J. M. Sample, in Medora township, climbed up on a wind mill tower about 0 o'clock Sunday evening and accidentally run the four fingers of his right hand through the cog-wheels of the mill.

It was necessary to amputate the two middle ones. The boy was two miles from home hen the accident occurred. It is a wonder that he did not fall from the tower, which would, probably have caused instant death. Herald.
