Mr. Fleming Is of tho impression
that gross credits should bo assessed,

AN ANCIENT VILLAGE
fine Visited by Ilourgmnnt In 17U4 Des
Ignnted na ludliin Town.
The slto of tho old vlllngo of the Kaw
or Kansas, Indians, visited by Bourg
mont, commander at Fort Orleans, in
1724, and about which history has said
much, has been located at the mouth
of Independence creek, a few miles
north of Atchison, Kan., by George J.
Remsburg, tho Kansas archaeological
Some historians had plnced tho slto of
thin famous prehistoric village at Atch
ison, but Remsburg, who has studied
early French documents and natural
features pertaining to that locality,
claims he has indisputable evidence in
support of his contention.
When Bottrgmont visited tho homo of
tho Kaw, or Kansas Indians, in 1872, it
contained 150 lodges, or about 1,500
warriors. Remsburg has Identified tho
other largo village site of tho Kaws.in
eastern Kansas at the mouth of Salt
creek, in Iavcnwortk county. Rems
burg mado a personal Investigation of
tho old Indian village at tho mouth of
Independence creek this week, and ho
claims he has secured ovldenco which
will settle the long quarrel between
archaeologists as to the exact location.
While in that locality Remsburg ex
plored on Indian mound nnd found
human remnlns, badly charred by fire
and hundreds of small glass, porcelain
and bone beads, copper ornaments, a
silver finger ring and earbobs, silver
breastplate, copper bracelet, fragments
of an Iron kettlo and an old-fushloned
plate, flint chips, mineral paint, a steel
or Iron ilrestock and many other arti
cles. The grave was undoubtedly that of a
Kaw, or Kansas, Indian. Remsburg
considers tho find important from an
archaeological standpoint. Ho will
make further Investigation In the vicin
ity of tho old village site.
THE BANKRUPTS OF KANSAS
An Average of Two Hundred Case
Year Since 1808.
There havo been 1,116 admissions to
bankruptcy court in Kansas siuco the
cnactmont of tho federal bankruptcy
law in 1898, niakiug nn average of 200
cases a year, most of them voluntary.
The ratio of voluntary bankruptcy
cases Is much larger than of those
which aro forced upon business men.
Under an order of tho clerk of the dis
trict court, Frank J. Brown, no infor
mation is ever given out for publica
tion regarding voluntary cases. This
being the fnct men who havo failed in
business havo no hesitation ubout tak
ing their affairs into court.
Tho rulo not only protects tho unfor
tunate In business from unpleasant
publicity, but It helps business for the
clerk of tho court, who Is paid nt tho
rate of $10 a case. Wcro all voluntary
cases made public there would not be
as many of them. Since tho passage
of the Inw there havo been In Kansas
942 voluntary nnd 174 Involuntary pro
ceedings. Fully half of these havo been
filed In the ofllco of tho clerk nt To
pelta, whllo the others havo been dl
vldod between tho Fort Scott nnd
Wichita divisions. Tho business has
not remained steady, but has Increased
from year to year, tho first rush being
brought on by failures left over from
'he hard times of the early 90's.

A LONG CHASE
After Two Ynim Freedom Desperad
Tliomna A. Katlng, nllas Lon Brlsco,
ono of tho lenders of the mutiny nt tho
slto of tho now United States penlten
tlnry nt Leavenworth, Kan., on tho
afternoon of November 7, 11)01, has been
returned to Fort Leavenworth, having
been captured near Ixsngmont, Colo.
Katlng and Arthur Hewitt was tho real
"bad" men of tho convict mutiny and
they have been wanted bndly by the
federal prison olUdnls. Hewitt Is serv
ing a term In tho Btato prison of Texas
for horso stealing, committed slnco tho
mutiny, nnd tho governor of that state
has agreed to pardon him when he Is
requested by tho United States attor
ney general to do bo. It is thought that
both Hewitt and Katlng will bo tried
at Topeka this mouth.
Hewitt and Katlng nro tho convicts
who secured weapons from tho outsldo
and incited tho twenty-four other con
victs to mutiny at the slto of tho new
prison on November 7. 1001. They were
the lenders from the beginning to the
end of the outbreak. Hewitt escaped
into Texas, whero ho was captured for
horsestealing. Ho was convicted and
sentenced to servo flvo years in prison.
Ho traveled under nn assumed namo
and hnd served nearly a year of his sen
tence before he was Identified as
Hewitt. Warden McClaughry at onco
set at work to Becuro a pardon for tho
convict In order to bring him hero for
trlnl for his life, and he has about suc
ceeded In his efforta.
Katlng breathed the nlr of freedom
longer than Hewitt, his partner In
crime. Ho went direct to tho Indian
Territory after tho mutiny and re
mained In hiding there until after tho
trial of the mutineers In Lcavonworth
recently. When ho learned that live
mutineers had been covictcd of mur
der In the first degreo he became
alarmed and Bought a now hiding
place. Ho secured work on a ranch
near Longmont, Colo., and was plowlnn
when detectives captured him. He had
a revolver and had no opportunity to
use. Ho raid afterward that he would
have given the officers a good fight 11
ho had had half a chance. Ho admit
ted that he would probably bo hanged.
If brought back to Fort l.avonwortb,
but seemed resigned to his fate.
When Katlng escaped from tho fed
eral prison ho was serving a scntenve
of flvo years for horso stealing. Ho
was suffering from a bullet wound lq
tho leg Inflicted by officer, near Chor
kn, I. T., recently, where ho was want
cd for stealing cattle.
PEACE NOT SURE.
Japan Mot Willing to Accept Proposed
The London Morning Post Bays It
understands that Japan is by no means
prepared to acqulsce in the suggestion
that she give Russia a frco hand in
Manchuria in exchango for a Japanesa
frco hand In Korea. Japan contends,
says tho Morning Post, that the two
questions are entirely separate, that
Korea independenco has already been
secured by convention and that as
Manchuria was restored to China by
Japan at tho instigation of European
powers, Japan naturally cannot consent
to its occupation by Russia.
Tho correspondent of the London
Dally Mall at Kobe quotes the Hochl
Shlmun of Tokio to tho effect that the
diplomatic corps of the Japanese capi
tal have no hopo of a peaceful settle
ment of the pending difficulties.

ONE OF BEST IN THE UNION
tier Crops, With UnUroruble Weather,
Show IteinnrkHbte Yield and
Ounllly the Heat.
Nebrnskans can contemplate with
much satisfaction tho yield of the fields
for tho last season. It is truo that tho
total figures of bushels and tons Is not
up to that of 1002, hut under tho con
ditions tho returns nrc certainly cause
for congratulation. In many respects
tho growing season was, abnormnl.
April, when tho rains nrp naturally
looked for. was dry, and cold; Mny was
wet nnd cold, Juno was wet and colder,
and July, reckoned nmong tho hot
months of tho year, was tho wettest
on record, nnd the daily mean tem
perature from G to 8 degrees lower than
the normal. It seemed llko hoping
agnlnst hopo to expect a crop under
these discouraging conditions. Grain
of all kinds nnd grntses grew rank un
der tho Influence of tho damp, cool
woather, and ripening was beyond pos
sibility. In Juno estlmntes on tho wheat
crop were that It wnnM vr.wi u, ...,
ord-breaking crop of 1002; when the
time came for harvest, many reported
that tho wheat crop would bo a failure.
In the senso of a bumper crop It was
a failure, but tho yield is such aB would
hae been causo for congratulation a
few years ago. Thirty-eight million
bushels of a first-class quality of wheat
is returned as Nebraska's yield for tho
Bcason. This is a disappointment, but
Is duo solely to the untoward weather
conditions that prevailed during June
Tho following comparison of yield
for small grains for 1903 with that of
1902 will bo read with much interest:
Art clo 10v?
Barley ami 09a
Ots shows an Increase In yield, but
1902 was a bad season for oats, and the
acreage for 1903 Is over 200,000 great
er. An increase in tho acrcago of bar
,,y.vcr lnst 'car's accounts for the
slight increase in the total yield.
Cora had a backward year of it, but
came gloriously out or tho contest with
tho elements and Is proudly waving its
Plumed head with a total yield that Is
far above expectation. When it is re
called that a largo percentage of tho
total acrcago was not planted until late
In June and much of It not until early
July, and that at tho time when tho
fields aro generally laid by the first
tended shoots were Just peeping abovo
tho rain-Eoaked earth, tho returns seem
Phenomenal. A ninety-day corn crop
is something to talk about nnd that Is
what Nebraska hns raised this year.
Ears aro long and well filled out and
the grain is plump and firm, so that It
will grade as high as Nebraska corn
ever did grade. In this regard It is a
great improvement over the crop of
1902, which whne much larger In num
ber of bushels, had hardly 20 per cent
of merchantable grain. The early frost
of that year "caught tho corn In tho
milk, and tho result was that at least
80 per cent of It was soft and only
fit for immediate feeding.
A report of tho state's yield for the
past six years Is hero given:
lbi7 ; 229,907,853
Potatoes suffered from the wet sea
son, and the yield was far from bolng
up to the average. Tho growth was
good, but tho cold, dark, damp days
during the ripening period prevented
the crop from maturing, thus reducing
the yield. Only tho late planted pota
toes gavo anything like tho yield that
Is usually expected from this crop.
Hay and alfalfa Buffered'. Growth
s splendid, but ripening was retard
ed by the rains. This really doveloped
into a very serious situation on tho
ranges where the snows thnt camo
with tho September cold wave threat
ened to do away with tho winter rango
altogether but tho warm, bright wea
ther that followed tho storm has reme
died this condition to a large extent,
stockmen coming in now report ranges
in good condition. h

bountifully with us, giving us penco
at homo nnd abroad and n chnnco for
our citizens to work for their welfare
unhindered by war, famlno or plague.
It behooves us not only to rejoice great
ly bpeaupo of what has been given us,
but to accept It with n solemn sense of
responsibility, realizing that under
heaven It rests with us oursolves to
show that we nro worthy to uso a right
that has been entrusted to our care.
In no other place and at no other tlmo
has the experiment of government of
tho people, by the people, for the peo
ple, been tried on so vast n scnlo as
here In our own country' in tho opening
years of tho twentieth century. Failure
would not only be a dreadful thing for
us but a dreadful thing for all man
kind; becauso It would mean loss of
hopo for all who bcllovo In tho power
and tho righteousness of liberty.
"Therefore, In thanking God for tho
mercies extended to us In tho past, wo
beseech Him that He may not withhold
thorn In the future, nnd that our hearta
may bo roused to war steadfastly for
good and against nil tho forces of evil,
public nnd private. Wo pray for
strength nnd light, bo that In tho com
ing years wo may with cleanliness,
fearlessness, and wisdom, do our allot
ted work on tho earth In such manner 1
as to show that wo are not altogether '
unworthy of tho blessings wo havo re
ceived. "Now, therefore, I, Theodore Roose
velt, president of tho United States,
do hereby designate us n day of gen
oral Thanksgiving, Thursday, tho twenty-sixth
day of November, 1903, and
do recommend that throughout tho land
people cease from their wonted occupa
tions, nnd In their several homes and
places of worship render thanks unto
Almighty God for His manifold mer
cies. "In witness whereof I have hereunto
set my hand and caused tho seal of tho
United States to bo affixed. (Signed.)
