EDITOR EDWARD E. COOPER BEGS C. H. J. TAYLOR'S PARDON HE SAID HE LIED ON HIM BUZZARD AND CROW? When Mr. Edward E. Cooper first made his appearance in this city he and his associates informed the people that a rlnn and decent oaDer would be pub lished. In fact, they told the people so much that they conciuaeu u wi an that a s its nn naner. Tii mnct remarkable document he has yet published was in the Colored American of last week concerning C. H. T. Taylor, at present employed to take charge of the Recorder's Office in the City Hall. a , , Cooper some time ago published some dirty and scurrilous (?) articles against Taylor under his own signature. He said all kinds of evil things against fh KunQflQ tenderfoot. He even went the empire .the 1 lit f ;as tenderioot. we even so far as to offer his services to tneubt ana airrecu lu ich .u.

Taylor sent word to Cooper by one of his clerks that he (Cooper) must retract, retract, and if he didn't he would indict him for libel. ? & , Cooper very soon after the Bees i;ki cnit rmhlished Tavlor's cut. This ddin't suit the Kansas tenderfoot.

Well, yes ; the 13ee was convicted by a jury and popular sentiment convicted Taylor. The Bee has never retracted one word it putH can-lished, and there is no power on tnisacy- earth that can make the Bee retract. eaIr StL f. "ga .;n, rpC,,lt pp.r-P ine rfc.
