i V'" 1 I -w ww I FROM JACKSON PARK. WAS ONE OF thing to do with his exit from Cleveland; another in Chicago and a woman scrape, which developed into a nortentious scandal in 1859 in Leav Letters from Motes F1 7 and Plain Dealer, were the other newspaper competitors for popular patronage. Col. Vaughan made the True Democrat a persistent champion of the growing third party anti-slavery sentiment, and, in 1848, was influential in nominating Van Bar en and Charles Francis Adams as the free soil candidates for president and vice-president and eloquentlv and ably advocated their election. In 1852, Mr.

Joseph Medill started the Forest City in Cleveland. It was alive, progressive sheet, paying unusual and particular attention to local news and society happenings. The election of that year resulted in the defeat of Oeneral Scott and the triumph of Franklin Pierce, leaving the Whigs and free soilers buried under a cloud and their newspaper organs in a very dejected situation, so that, in 1853, the True Democrat and Forest City hyphenated and consolidated, under the name of tho Forest City Democrat. In a few weeks thereafter, however, Mr. Medill changed the name of the paper to the Leader.

Shortly after that he sold his interest in the Leader to Mr. Edwin Cowles and removed to Chicago, where he founded the Chicago Tribune, leaving Col. Vaughan, for a short time, in the editorial chair of the Leader. At the time Col. Vaughan was in Cleveland, the slave power had, more than ever before, become the great controlling factor in the Democratic party.

The fugitive slave law had been enforced in Cincinnati, Boston and Cleveland, and Col. Vaughan, Edwin Cowles, Hiram Griswold, R. C. Parsons and Daniel R. Tilden, with others, held daily conferences to effect an organization that would cover the entire north and west, in the in-interest of human freedom.

After the defeat of Gen. Scott, in 1852, Col. Vaughan wrote a brilliant series of which were widely copied, in favor of organizing a new party, on the platform of resistance to the aggressions of slavery and the slave power and calling it the 'National Republican Party." And, right here, let me mention a historical fact, so that, whatever the after career and shortcomings of our old friend Vaughan, all may be forgiven, for the nobleness and utility that once were in him. One night, in the beginning of 1855, Col. Vaughan called a meeting of his friends and associates, where there were present John C.

Vaughan, Jo-peph Medill, R. P. Spaulding, Hiram Griswold, Edwin Cowles, John Barr, H. P. Hurlbut, Ben.

Wade, J. F. Keeler and Richard C. Parsons. Tney met in the Leader editorial and organized the Republican party.

That meeting resulted in the calling of the first Republican convention ever held. Ib assembled in Pittsburg, in February 1855, and paved the way for the consolidation of the Whig, Know-Nothing, Anti-Slavery, Democrat and Free-Soil parties, under the Republican banner and the triumphant election of Abraham Lincoln followed in 1860. Republican organizations sprang up everywhere in the North. The name, idea and principles promulgated, took like wild fire. "Free soil, free homes, free men Fremont," was the wild and enthusiastic war cry in 1856, and if there had not been so many tickets in the field, Buchanan would then have been defeated.

Of the Coterie or Caucus above enumerated, Vanghan, Cowles and Medill were editors; Griswold, Parpone, Spalding and Wade, lawyers; Hurlbut, a banker; Keeler a manufacturer and Barr a justice of the peace, thus representing, among themselves, ot the most important persuits of life. Several of them arose to prominence in the party which they founded. All are now dead, but Medill, Keller and Parsons. Wade was in Congress; Medill every one knows as the greas editor and owner of the Chicago Tribune; Hurlbut died with multi-millions, leaving to his beloved city of Cleveland, the means to establish an art gallery; Parsons was the first speaker of the first Republican House of Ohio; Griswold an able lawyer, an eloquent speaker and a man of very commanding presence, defended John Brown, in Virginia, in 1859, came to Leavenworth in 1863, acquired a lucrative practice, was register in bankruptcy and died wealthy and honored in 1882. Tilden served in Congress and was made judge, and Cowles continued to edit the Leader until his death.

Col. Vaughan, the last one of the Coterie to die, was a warm hearted patriotic gentleman, endowed with rare intelligence; always responsive to an appeal for help and moved, in his acts, for the. good of others, rather than himself. From Cleveland, Col. Vaughan, went to Chicago in 1855, where, with Joseph Medill, he was one of the founders of the Chicago Tribune, as a Republican paper.

He remained in Chicago about two years and in 1S57, removed to Leavenworth, Kansas, where he resided for a quarter of a century. He was then 51 years of age. His reputation had preceded him and he at onoa was recognized asone fitted to assume the leadership of the Free State party and carry ib on to triumph. It was not then realized that he Jacked mor Notes From the Police Preclnctof the World's Fair In Chicago. The following is an extract from a letter, from Ex-city Marshal W.

D. Shallcross. It will be of interest to many of hi3 old friends and others. "We are over 400 strong. Our chief is just such a man as Thos.

H. Speers in looks and action, good, kind, but positive. A man that does his duty can get along all right; if he does not he had better quit. We have been divided into divisions. I was given the north east corner of the grounds.

In my division were South Wales, Canada, England, France and Sclav courts and English and German buildings. When the Germans dedicated their building they had a fine time, wines, beer and cigars were issued free. Cbas. Richter, ex-policeman from Leavenworth has the beer stand in the basement of the German building: besides he is chief janitor in one of the buildings. So that gives him two situations as he cleans up the building at night.

Tuesday, May 2, 1 was at the terminal of the L. rail road which runs into the ground. I tell you it. was a busy day, as fully 10,000 persons passed through these gates. I did so well, they put me back to the same place on Wednesday.

On Thursday I had the center of machinery hall a building 491xS12 ft. with annex 490x381. In this building is the largest electric engine in the world manufactured by the Weetinghouse Manufacturing Uo. It would do my friend Pat Burns good for him to see the hose and coupling and fire apparatus they have from different countries. The saw mill exhibit would surprise Wm.

Brans-field, Foley, Crowley and Dustin and all other would look with surprise on tho plumbers tools and supplies from Germany and France, as well as from our own America. The boilers that furnish the steam are HEATED BY INSTEAD OF COAL. The firemen wear white jackets and caps and black trousers; tho boiler and engine room to the building is 56x1103 ft. There are also three trolley traveling cranes for unloading heavy machinery; that is run by electricity which works very nicely. R.

Hoe Co. have the finest printing preBS I have ever seen France and Germany have some very fine ones also. John Higgins, ex-deputy warden, Mr. Spencer and two others are here from Lansing. Mr.

Neubauer and myself represent old Leavenworth." Ex-police Officer Neubauer states in a private letter to a friend that the cold rains have caused much hardship among the police, where tho writer of the letter is employed. He states that the men have had cold, damp sleeping quarters and they have to take it if they are not able to rent a room. He has rented a room. He says everybody has to pay double price for eatables and everything else in proportion. He says the members of the "guard" are treated like dogs, worse than the private soldiers at Fort Leavenworth.

OUTSIDE THE CITY. The Saloon Keepers Mad Because They Think One is Favored. There is, from accounts, a good sized row brewing in the neighborhood between the city limits and the Soldiers' Home. It is all because, it is alleged, that notwithstanding the fact that all the saloon keepers outside the city have been notified to quit selling, and complaints have been filed against them, one continues to sell while the others have quit. "One who said he has obeyed the to a reporter Thursday: It is a shame to be treated this way.

We don't know how it is that Jake Weisman can keep wide open while we all have to close up. I thought we were all to be treated alike; but it seems we are not, the law is just the same for all. If he can run we ought to be allowed to do the same thing." Under Sheriff Flora said some time ago that all the places would be closed and it is presumed that as an officer he meant what he said, for complaints were filed against all who did not at once comply with his order. The State Penitentiary. Warden W.

Si Chase eays: "There are now 868 convicts at the state penitentiary, about fifty of whom are life prisoners. The Kansas institution considered to be the eocond best in this country, the penitentiary at El-myra, N. being the best. But Kansas would not stand an institution like that. The prisoners there live in comparative idleness.while at Lansing everyone is kept busy.

We work about 500 men in the factories. The penitentiary, if the legislature would only make some provision for the state institutions to receive their coal in the summer when we have bo little call for it. would be self supporting. As it is now, it is nearly so. There is no 'public table' at the pen many suppose.

That was cut off by the legislature of two years ago. It was a good thing, too, and results in a saving for state of about $22,000 a year." There has been a general overhauling of the prison since Warden Chase took charge and forty-five new men have been placed on duty as guards. It is the intention of the new warden to add somewhat to the school facilities of the prison and make it as much of a reformatory as possible consistent with the work the prisoners have to do. La Grippe. During the prevalence of the grippe the past season it was a noticeable fact that those who depended upon Dr.

King's New Discovery not only had a speedy recovery, but escaped all of the troublesome after effects of tiiamalndv. This remedv seems to have a peculiar power in effecting A RAILROAD TO BE SOLD. THE K. C. W.

N. W. TO BE AUCTIONED IN KANSAS CITY, KAN. ONE MILLION WILL BE THE BID. It Is Surmised That the Goulds Have Cot the Road Into Such a Shane That It Can be Bought In.

Perhaps by a Single Bid Which No Other Company Will Care to Raise. On Monday, June 12, between the hours of 11 a. m. and 2 p. in front of the District court house in Kansas City, Kansas, all the corporate property of the Kansas City, Wyandotte Northwestern railway company, will be sold to the highest bidder, by Hiram P.

Dillon, master commission- er for the United States circuit court or the district of Kansas to satisfy a mortgage held by the Farmers' Loan and Trust company of Boston. The eale will mark a period and turning point in the history of the road and will, to a certain extent, decide its future. The decree of foreclosure was entered at the term of the circuit court held June 18, 1891. It was therein ordered that all the corporate property now owned or hereafter to be acquired by the company in the state of Kansas and other states, excepting such lands now owned or hereafter acquired by the railroad company as may not be used for right of way, depot grounds or in orperating the road, shall be sold under the direction of the master commissioner and the pro ceeds applied to the satisfaction of the judgment; interests and costs, except such as provided in the decree. This includes everything moveable and immoveable and goes in a lump without appraisement.

But it is stipulated, that the commissioner shall receive no bid less than one million dollars. And no bids are to be considered unless the bidder deposits $75,000 in cash or the bonds secured by the mortgage to the complainant in tho sum of $200,000. Such deposit secured from the successful bidder will be applied on the purchase price. It is also decreed that the sale shall be for cash or cash and bonds, without the benefit of any stay Valuation or redemption laws. The Northwestern has for a number of years been in the hands of a receiver, Newman Erb, of Kansas City, Kan.

Its officers were: W. D. Bethel, Memphis, president; K. B. Armour Kansas City, vice president.

Not long ago the road passed into the hands of the Goulds and it is surmised that a representative of George Gould will buy it in at the auction sale. It will then undoubtedly become a part of the Missouri Pacific system. The number of miles operated is 283. The rolling stock consists of eighteen locomotives, twenty-nine passenger cars and 508 freight and miscellaneous cars. GERMANS PROTEST.

A National Pythian Convention at Indianapolis Representing 50,000 Members. An order was issued some time ago by the supreme lodge of Knights of Pythias of the world that all subordinate lodges in the United States must use the English language in their work in the lodge rooms. The German lodges, with a membership of about 50,000, have demurred at the order and have fixed June 10 for a convention of delegates from all the lodges in the country to assemble at Indiananapolis. George Linck has been selected as the delegate from Concordia lodge No. 8 of this city, which works in the Germrn language.

It is the purpose of the convention to enter aprotest against the action of the superior lodge, which, if not heeded, may haye a tendency toward the withdrawal of the German lodges from the English speaking jurisdiction, and the establishment of a national grand lodge to work in the German language.

THE CARERR OF COLONEL JOHN I CHAMPION VAUGHN. RENOWNED IN FOUR GREAT STATES. ANewspaper Man cf Wide Experience Ono of the Founders of tho Cleveland "Leader." the Founder of the Chicago "Tribune" andOnce Part Owner of The Leavenworth Times." There died, at the Old Men's Heme, on beautiful Walnut Hills, at Cincinnati, Ohio, on Sunday the 25fch day of September, 1S92, at the ripe and venerable age of eighty-six years, a feeble old man. His body was cremated, at the Cincinnati Crematory, on Monday, the next day in accordance with his oft expressed desire and his ashes were afterwards intered in lovely spring grove cemetery. old time friends, a respectful group of strangers, with a solemn array of gaping children, witnessed the religious ceremonies at the crematory, then all was over.

Wild storms had beaten on that gray head, but now, like the tired watchman in his air-rocked tower, who gladly hailed the hour of release, It had found rest with those who was no more. There was dearth of wifely tears, absence of daughter's sobs, lack of son's dejectful sorrow. Yet this old man once eDjoyed national reputation, was widely known and celebrated in four great states of the Union and should have received sep- ulcher throngs of weeping rela tives and friends and hosts of saddened mourners. COL. JOHN C.

YAUGHAN. Col. John Champion Vaughan arrived in Cincinnati, somewhere in tho early forties, from the state of South Carolina. I recall, through dim distance, lor I was a mere child, that tho Vaughans became neighbors to my parents. But the recollection of Mr.

Vaughan's robust, manly form, his bright active intellect, his impulsive, genial nature and his affectionate manners with the children of the neighborhood, is a pleasant memory, never to be effaced. He was born in South Carolina, of the best stock in that aristocratic old state, studied law in the office of John C. Calhoun and practiced for a time at the bar. But his surroundings were distateful. From early youth he became permeated with a prejudice against the institution of slavery and inimical to its spread.

There is no doubt of his sincerity, as an anti-slavery man, for it was well known at that time, and widely published in the papers, that he had manumitted his own bondsmen, whom he had inherited from his acceptors, when he disposed of his Cther belongings and removed to Cincinnati. He shortly after went to the state of Kentucky, for a brief spell, and was associated with Cas-aius Clay, in the editorial conduct of anti-Blavery paper, at Lexington. But he did not remain there long as Kentucky was not a healthy residence for one of his aggressive ideas on the subject of human liberty and the rights 01 mannooa. in race ne was earnestly invited to leave, in a manner bo persuasive and convincing, as not to bo Ignored In Cincinnati he became editor of the historic old Gazette, in association with such able men as Charles Hammond, Moses Dawson and Judge Wright. Here he was a very useful great influence and 'was muoh respected.

He was popular with all classes, belonged to the old volunteer fire department, then composed of the best citizens, "ran with the machine and the boys" and was potent in the councils ot the old Whig party. He tarried in Cincinnati until the year 1847, when he removed tp Cleveland, Ohio, and became- one of the founders of the True Democrat, a papor which proclaimed and maintained that trna Jeffersonian Democracy was opposed to the extension of slavery. He was an active member of the Free Soil party and, in the canvass, that resulted in the election of Salraon P. Chase to the United States Senate from Ohio, himself only lacked two votes, in the caucus, of being the nominee. How thin the partition 'twixt celebrity, fame, power and obscurity.

Col. Vaughan was an unalterable opponent of slavery and really cared but little, at that period, what party he worked with, so long as he was engaged in combatting the encroach-' mAiita nFfiinf. i nRtit.tition-. When he cast; his lot in Cleveland, the Herald enworth. Colonel Vaughan had an-a I -11 1 1 Jl w.

otner DmuauL eon wno aeveiopea into a great violinist and died insane, and a daughter, Virginia, who before her death displayed wonderful literary talents. The elder daughter still resides in Cleveland and moves in cultured circles with the best people. In the latter part of the sixties the colonel was without means or employ-men and a burden on his friends and they, tiring of his frequent drafts upon their savings, looked around for a place where they might shelve him one that would support him. So in 1870, by common consent, he was elected judge of the police court, defeating Webb Wilder and succeeding myself. Then his wife wrote from Cleveland to the late Mrs.

Griswold to know the income of the office, stating that if he was receiving a salary it was high time he should be contributing something for the maintainance of who had received nothing from him for years. But, though the colonel often avered and asserted that he and his wife "were of accord," they never met from the day he left Cleveland. He was continued on the police bench (with an interregnum, when he served one term in the legislature) for about eight years. During all his residence, he had a room, where he slept, and took his meals out, at a hotel. Throughout the day and up to bed time, the genial old gentleman would sit around in some saloon, sipping his toddy and reading the newspapers.

After he got out of office and was again destitute, his friends kept him going for a considerable time, until they realized that he needed a home andinursuing. Then a puree was made up, and outfit of new clothes purchased and he was sent to his daughter in' Cleveland. But there, misfortunes had also come; his son-in-law had failed in business and could not afford the additional ex-pedse of his support and, for other reasons they did not welcome his return; and so the poor old man at the ago of seventy-seven, was banished to the poor house. Then it was that his old friend and associate, Mr. Edwin Cowles, heard of the matter and immediately furnished him with money for his temporary needs and at once collected a sufficient sum with which to purchase a life membership for him, in the Old Men's home, at Cincinnati.

This cost one thousand dollars, of which sum Mr. Medill contributed one-half; Mr. Cowles, Richard Smith, of the Commercial-Gazette, and others, making up the other half. Some of these gentlemen often visited Col. Vaughan, at the Home, and him liberally supplied with cigars and spending money, and Richard Smith, on Sundays sent his carriage over to Walnut Hills, to bring Col.

Vaughan to his own beautiful home, in Clifton, there to dine and eDjoy the day. "Patriarch" Vaughan, as he was called at the Home, was the orator of the institution and often addressed the Pioneer association of Cincinnati. The quarter of a century which Col. Vaughan spent in Leavenworth, was a blank in his career, for while he did no possible harm to any, he accomplished but little good for himself, or others. He was sabtle? sanctimonious, pretentious, insincere, when he first arrived among us, so that many were decevied aa to his character and potency ss a leader and really believed that he possessed great influence with the imposing statesmen and politicians of the east.

About the time the war clouds were gathering, when strong men paled and faltered and the timid spoke with bated breath, it was our wont to seek Col. Vaughan, for advice and better assurance. And, with superior and patronizing air and the Lordly manner of a parent addressing a son, he would bid us to be not alarmed, assuring us that there would be "no trouble;" that everything was "about to be settled harmoniously." "I have just received a letter from Seward" (or Chase, the case might be.) "Ah, here it is," searching his pocket No, I declare, I must have left it in my room." But the good soul never received letters from Chase or Seward and we oon realized that he was talking only to make himself important. Yet all feel a kindlv remembrance of good old Jonn C. Vaughan.

His patriarchies! and paternal manner betokening one well skilled in the ways of he world the knowledge that he had once stood so high; his inexhaustoble fund of information on all subjects broached; his ready adaptability for a brilliant talk at the banquet table, or a tearful oration over tne bier as the clods were cast in the grave; his blooming geniality, good humor, sociability and lack of malice; rendered him a general favorite, alike with men, women and children. He has gone where no grudges grow, no cares perplex, no vanity consumes, nor strife, disturbs to his eternal, untroubled life. A. F. Caixahan.

Money Maker. It is so hard to get employment now and so hard to make money, that I know how they can make a little money as I have done. Tell your subscribers they can get all the jewelry, table-ware, knives, forks and spoons they can plate, and make $25 a week. The plating outfit costs 5. I bought mine from H.

The work is done so nicely that everybody seeing it wants work done. This machine is the greatest money maker I ever saw. Why should any one be out of employment or out of money, when they can, by ueing my experience, always have money in the house and have a little to spend too?

In conjenction with his son "Champ" Vaughan and J. Kemp Batrlett, he purchased The Leaven worth Times from Robert Crozier afterwards prominent on the bench. Among the bright men of that day, none was regarded with more respect and revence that Col. Vaughan. But it did not last.

Champ Vaughan, the brilliant and erratic son, was a reprobate from the outset. He was soon discovered to be untruthful and unreliable, dissipated, vicious and dishonest and the good old father, but a faded reminiscience of former usefulness and both father and son were too expensive, in their habits, for the income of the office; so that Mr. Bart'ett soon tired of their company. Champ married a beautiful and unfortunate young lady in 1860, and there was a scandal. In a few months she died in Childbirth.

He married again after the war, a flighty and hysterical girl, from down east, who soon left him and was divorced. He drifted to Pueblo and Denver, now eating morphine and drinking whisky and, anon, making temperance speeches, with the Murphy blue ribbon, dan cling from his lapel. He died in the Eighties at Denver from a dose of morphine. Mrs. Colonel Vaughan never lived with her husband after he left Cleveland.
