The train was composed of three elegant
drawing-room cars and a baggage car.
As soon as the train stopped the gate to
the rear platform of the president's car
was thrown open and Miss Jeannette
Livengston with a beautiful basket of
roses was helped to the platform. The
door was opened and the president and
Mrs. Cleveland stood just within. Miss
Jeannette entered the door and presented
the basket to Mrs. Cleveland and pressed
a kiss on her right cheek and then re
tired. The basket was the compliment
of Dr. R. R. Livingston to Mrs. Clevs
land. President Cleveland and his bride then
appeared upon the platform and the
crowd cheered separately for each, Mrs.
Cleyeland then withdrew to within the
door while the president shook for the

ATTEMPTE D BURGLARY-
Burglars Attempt to Break Into W.
Pickens' Residence Satur
Greeted With a Bullet
Last Saturday W. H. Pickens, the well
known contractor and builder' received
a check of $1,000 from J. D. Tutt, which
he deposited in th .i bank and in the even
ing he received a transfer of deposit of
f 1500 from E. B. Lewis which he took
to his house, also having some 50 dol
lars with him, which he intended paying
a workman. His residence is on Wash
ington Aye., the tir.it house south of Dr.
Schildknecht's. and the lower floor is oc
cupied by Stephen Smith. Duriug Sat
urday night Mr. Smith was awakened by
some parties trying hit window, and
just us lie woke they proceeded around
to the kitchen door and attempted to
enter it, but it was securely fastened, and
they tried a kitchen window. Mr. Smith
was now thoroughly aroused to the fact
that burglars were around, and taking
his revolver he proceeded to the kitcken,
but the men - then parsed around the
house and he raised a window a little to
listen and look out. The raising o the
window awoke Mr. Pickens up stairs
who got up and took his revolver anil
stepped out on the etens, there he saw
three men passing along below him
lhey turned the corner and passed
around the house again. Mr. Pickens
tlien descended the stairs as quietly as
possible, but iust as he reached the bot
tom of the stairs the men passed the
window raised by Smith, and Smith
promptly fired but tho bullet struck an
air ball built in front of the window and
bounded back with tremendous force
just missing him and going all over the
kitchen. The shot fiiuhtened the men
away aud Mr. Pickens lost his shot and
the men escaped without any harm, and
the darkness and drizzling rain preven tec:

The burglars had probably thought
Mr. Pickens had a good deal of money
at home, but besides the $50 and the
transfer check of 1500 was all, and
that was good only to him.

board of public works, gave the report,
which advised the accepting of the bid
of Shaw, Muihollan & Downing, of Kan
sas City, and that the firm tile a good
bond to the umount of $15,000.

and recommendations. Considerabl

of public works be received and adopted,

A petition was then presented from
residents near the corner of Oak and 3rd
streets. It seems that about a week ago
M. McGuirc, who lives on the corner of
Oak and 3rd, circulated a petition asking
that Oak and 3rd streets be graded at
their intersection. The petition was
given to the street commissioner, M.
Morgan, and he proceeded with the work
which was to be paid for by the poll tax
of the petitioners. The grade as petition
ed for would cut 3rd street badly, and
expose the water pipes to frost and the
chairman of the committee on streets
alleys and bridges saw fit to stop the
work. The petition presented asked
that the work be continued. After con
siderable discussion the city surveyor was
instructed to examine the matter and see
if the grading was proper.
