Governor Leedy Gives Some Very Practical Political Reasons Why. Governor Leedy has determined to appoint police commissioners in the six cities of the first class. This means - Wichita, Topeka, Fort Scott, Kansas City, Leavenworth and Atchison. Speaking of his resolution to appoint commissioners, Mr. Leedy says: "I have not at any time intended to abolish these commissions, although I confess the subject has given me more trouble than any subject I have been called upon to consider. I could THt.see my wn- clear to consent to abolish the commissioners. There stands the law. It, of course, gives me discretionary power as to the abol ishment of the commissioners, but there Is the legislature soon to meet. The wisdom of many is better than the judgment of one, especially if that one has had no experience with the f operation of the law in the cities it is Intended to apply to. Now, there are 165 men in the legislature. Let them decide this matter. Meanwhile I shal "Tvnofint commissioners in the six V'H. of tthe first class." Speaking of the political power the police department carries with it, Mr. Leedy said: "Yes, I consider all that, too. It is a big club in the hands of the party that will consent to use it and our experience last fall was that it was used mercilessly and unscrupulously by the republicans. shall net consent to such a use of it by our people, but it is not sale to trust it in the hands of tihe enemy. Continuing he said: "But there is a better argument in my mind for - ---n.liTiiip.nce of the commission thri nil that. It means places for nnn or ?,00 of my friends, and on that I stand." Tn a late talk the governor said: "I am going to appoint commissioners for the first class citiese, and you may announce that from now until the legislature meets I am ready to near anyone from those cities who has a suggestion to make. I will an ncunce no appointments until after the legislature assembles, as I wish to show the proper courtesy to the senators and representativese in regard to these matters." "You may put it this way," he continued, "I will appoint for police commissioners for the first class cities the very best men I can find, fitted for positions. It will be a question of fitness with me rather than politics. I do not mean to say that politics will cut no figure, because I will take all cf these into consideration.but I do propose to have good men." PYLES MAY BE A BIGAMIST. A Letter Incriminates a Former Argentine Merchant. William Burdette, a brakeman on the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe railv'-''- w" lives in Argentine, is in receipt cf a letter from Ida Pyles of Williamsville, Mo., in which she makes inquiry as to. the whereabouts of her father, one Richard Pyles. Richard Pyles was at one time a well t" ' -'"''Tt of Argentine. He married a sister of Burdette and lived with her until last May. At that time the brother declared that Pyles had another wife, from whom he was never legally separated. He caused his brotbrr-in-law's arrest on the charge of bigamy, but when the case was tried Pyles was dismissed. SLEIGH RIDERS HURT.

Biggs of St. Louis, on Minnesota avenue, turned south on Seventh street f'i went down the steep incline at a high speed, and Mrs. Walters, who was driving, lost control of the horse and the sleigh was overturned End miolished.

The Kansas City, Fort Scott and Memphis railway began work today to construct an iron bridge for an overhead crossing, a half mile south of the Wyandotte and Johnson county line. This has always been a surface crossing and, being on the main highway between Olathe and Kansas Citv, with a deep .cut on either side of "it, accidents have been numerous there. An unsuccessful effort was made to get Johnson county to share the cost of the bridge. The railway company graded the approaches, built the piers, and will complete the structure all but flooring and painting it . Johnson county has agreed . to do the latter. The bridge will cost not less than $3,000. ELECTRIC LIGHT COMPANY IN LUCK. The verdict in , the cases of Grace File against the lefty of Kansas Citv Kan., and the Consolidated Electric Light and Power Company was set aside by Judge Holt on Saturday. The case was originally tried at the September term of .the court and the plaintiff given judgment for $2,600 damages. The judgment was jointly against the city and the light company, but from the evidence introduced ait the trial the light company was not liable for damages, and a few days ago the company's attorneys filed a motfon to eet aside the judgment The plaintiff was injured by coming in contact with & live electric light wire.

METROPOLITAN IMPROVEMENTS The Splendid Work Done by the Street Railway Company West of the State Line. Kansas Citv. Kan., fared very liber ally in the great work of rebuilding done by the Metropolitan Street Rail way Company during the year that nas just closed. The company has expended for imnrovements on its svs- tems in the two Kansas Ciltys nearly $i,uuu,ooo. This does not Include the cost of operating, which amounts to about another million. The construct ion work, whidh was actively pushed during the summer months, was a di rect benefit to from 600 to 1 onn Kan sas City laboring men to whom it gave employment. This immense expenditure absorbed such a large proportion of the revenue of the road t hai tne company has oard but small rtiv .ae-nds- not more than about 2 per cent. In Kansas City west of the state line mere was a complete reconstruct ion or the tracks of the elevated system from Chelsea park junction to Splitlcg avenue.a distance of one and one-half miles. New rails wer laM and the tracks repaved, the Chelsea park, kdgerton and Grand View branches were also reconstructed and furnished with new overhead work. The improvements on the L road, without the new Riverview power house, cost a quarter of a million dollars. This includes a $60,000 bridge whicb spans the Kaw, the upper deck of which is alone used by the company, leaving the lower for the free use of the public. was the construction at Riverview of The next step takenby the company an electric power house, which, the officials unhesitatingly say. surpasses anything of the kind in the countrv. The cost was $300,000. Other impalements. Including new cars of s "..cfern which have t been ponounced flnsurpassed, have . been made on the L road. CYPRESS YARD TAXES.

SKUNK PELTS AND TALLOW. Atchison Globe: A young man, named Roy Shultz, living near Ar-rington, makes considerable money catching skunks for their hide and tallow. Skunk hides bring from seventy five cents to a dollar each, and the tallow brings eighty five cents a pound. He catches from three to ten skunks a night and will soon have enough money to buy a bicycle. He catches skunks in an odd manner. He bores a hole in a two-by-four scantling, and stuffs it full of tallow, into which strychnine has been pourad.. He then takes the piece of scantling to the woods and throws it ten or fifteen feet away from him. He does not dare drop it at Ilia feet, for a skunk has a wonderful strong scent (no jokemeant) is very suspicious,' and would not go Lnear the bait if there were human tracks near it. Tne skunk Hck3 tne tallow, and the strychnine does the rest in a very short time. Young Shultz came to town yesterday and purchased a quantity of strychnine to continue his business. TERSE TALES.

At the regular meeting of the Trades Assembly yesterday afternoon the legislative committee reported on several important bills to be presented to the legislature at the coming session. Among them was one making blacklisting criminal. The committee also advises the passage of a bill making it compulsory to brand all convict labor goods. This bill is looked upon as one of special importance by the labor unions as being well adapted to protect union men. There is little doubt that the Trades Assembly will take favorable acrim m this bill. Another bill reported was one on government apprenticeships, y It requires tht certain legal restrictions be placed on apprentices, assuring competent workmen in the different crafts. KANSAS PAYING HER DEBTS. The bonded Indebtedness of Kansas, including state, county, city, township, village, board of education and schcol district, was decreased $2,017,-475.70 during the years 1895 and 1896. This is a phenomenal showing when the depressed condition of financial affairs and the extremely low prices for grain during those years are taken into consideration. It shows the wonderful resources of the state and its ability to pay its legal public obligations. These figures are not mere guess work. They were taken from the report of the auditor, which has just been published, and it shows that of the 104 counties of Kansas, only twenty-three have increased their bonded indebtedness since the issuance of the auditor's report for 1893 and 1894. The Indebtedness of eighty-two counties was decreased. Kansas as a state owes but little money. The report for 1893 and 1894 show t that its bonded indebtedness was only $801,000. During the poji two years it has been reduced $119,000, and now aggregates only $682,000. ; THE LOUISIANA TORNADO.-.; Shreveport, - La., Jan.- 3. There .

" exclaimed a young couple in unison to Police Capt. Bamford at the West Orange, N. J., police station late the other night. The captain told ths young man and the blushing young woman that he was not in a position to tie the knot, but a messenger was sent to the liome of-Police Justice Condit,. nearly a mile away. The justice had retired for the night, but dressed himself and answered the summons. The first question the bridegroom arked the justice as he entered the court was: "now much do yop charge, judge, to marry people?" "Oh, anything-, from 50 cents up,'" said the mag'strate, laughing. A consultation between the would-be bride and bridegroom followed, an -J then the latter finally said: "All right, we are ready," and the two were made man and wife. As the certificate was handed to the bride by the justice the bridegToom dropped a dozen pieces of coin into his hand, and the two left the court. After counting over the pennies an.! nickels the man had given him t Injustice discovered that he had 50 cents. Cost of the certificate and other expenses reduced the magistrate's fee to nine cents.

The Socialist labor party, Kansas City Section, held a meeting yesterday afternoon to which all the unemployed were invited, and will ask the city for work. It is stated that there are 4,000 men out ol worn m me uij, and one rabid socialist talked of moving in force on the city hall. An 'honest-looking, countryfied individual made a business of borrowing, and secured a collection of tools from residents in the vicinity of Fifteenth and McGee streets by telling a tale of woe to the effect that his wagon had broken down on the corner above, and that the loan of tools wculd help him out.

WANTS ALL TREATED ALIKE. Iola Register: We notice an item going the rounds to the effect that our good populist friend, W. L. Brown, secretary of the late senate, has recently sold a bunch of steers for $36 a head which he bought last March for $11 a head. That Is all right as a stand up for Kansas item. . But how is it from the standpoint of exhorbi-tant and outrageous profits? Mr. Brown admits that the keep of the steers was practically nothing, and yet he boasts of his profit of nearly 300 per cent. Howdo these profits compare with the profits of the hired man who took care of the cattle while Brother Brown saved the country with his mouth and his lead pencil? And did Mr. Brown "divy" any? If it is all right for a populist to clear 300 per cent profit in six months on a little cattle trade in which there , was practically no risk, how much profit should a great railroad corporation be allowed to earn? , And if the railroads are getting rich so fast that the State will have to pass a law to get hold of some of their money, what is the matter with setting the State onto Mr. Brown? RAILROAD LAND GRANTS. State Auditor of Minnesota Presents - Startling Figures. St. Paul, Minn., Jan 3. The biennial report of State Auditor Robert C.
