KANSAH CITY , January 30. Tax
payers are considerably exercised over
the dHoovery of a systematically
planned scheme to rob them. The
allegation ) * are that Comity Collector
Greene ban bi un increasing thu vnlu\
tion from $1,000 , to 810,000 , and when
taxea were paid pocketing iho differ
ctico. Thu increased v.'duaMon in
Kansna City alone id about $1,000,000.
It is impossible to determine without
investigation how much money has
boon fraudulently made.
Thn gravest implications exist in
the otli.'O of the collector of taxes for
this county , and the excitement over
the condition of aiTiirs has not in the
cast abtted. Collector Greene now
admits that there have been many or-
rbr made , and probibly frauds com-
mit'ed by his clerkr. Although the
cnamination of tax receipts has only
been commenced by the people ,
scores of inst mces have already boon
found where assessments have been
railed and oxccsaivo amounts col
lected. The collector has abked the
county court , to make in investiga
tion , but Judge White , of the circuit
c urt , has doomed the matter
of sufficient importance to order a
special grand jury to meet to-morrow
to make a 'thorough investigation of
the silTair * of the collector's oflicu. U
ii biirmifod that systematic c rooked-
lias been going on m this office
for many yuare , not only in the col
lection of licenses from merchants
and hunincsH men irentrnliy , but there
are the bist reasons for believng
that tlie treasury has been defrauded
out of several thousand dollars. The
county atpcsanr is also thought to be
implicated , and a large petition has
boin sent to the county court de
manding his removal.

ho had uot the least doubt of thu

asked that exports bo appointed to

He says that hereafter no letters ad

His time is too much occupied to at
tend to Itttora sent to the prisonoiv
The counsel gives the following fur
publication to thu American people :
"I have faithfully defended Guitenu
on the plea of insanity to the best of
my ability. Tl o opinion entertained
by me at first that he was the victim
of a controlling delusion Ima grown to
thorough conviction from the evidence
adduced on the trial and f mm my own
intercourse with the prisoner. I know
that such is also the conviction of
many candid , intelligent people , em
bracing judges of courts , members of
congress , lawyers , physicians , and all
classed of society. The question now
arises , What shall bo done. ? The
defense has been niado by mo for
thrco reasons : First , from loyalty to
my wife , his sinter ; second , because I
felt the defense to bo jut and there
fore required by humanity ; third , to
save the nation from the lusting dm-
grace of hanging an insane man to
gratify popular revenge , and at the
same time of placing on the records of
history , through a judicial proceeding ,
the solemn judgment that it was pos
sible for an American citizen of sound
mind to murder the president of the
United States. Had I the means to
carry the defense further , either of
those means would bo amply sufficient
to induce mo to persevere unto the
end , but the first and second buing of
personal nature muat yield to stern
necessity. 1 he last is ono of HUCU
general intenst that I have coino to
the conclusion to submit it to my fel
low citi/.oitB , and their rnplv will de
cide my conduct. Motion for a new
trial has been filed and will IMJ argued
this week before Judge Cox , with a
possibility of its being granted.
If overuled , judgment and Hont'jnuo
will be passed upon the prisoner to
ho executed in the latter pr.rtof .luno.
Several weeku will bo allowed in that
event to rnako up a bill of cxcuptionn
and present the C.IBO on appeal to the
L'cnonil term of couit. In my opinion
there are ample groumlH ft r
of judgment on appeal. The qucr.-
tion of public intercut presented is
whether such appeal shall carneHtly
and ably presented. That cannot be
done without money. Other couiuul
nhould be engaged and paid. Mr.
Hued has ably ( insisted me Boldly
through a laudable motive of humani
ty to save an inn.uio man from thu
gallows , but ia not ublo any more
than I to give further time without
compensation. I hnvo given four
month'a time at a nicrifice in mybit.Hi-
HUBS or at least 5,000 and at nil.ex
pense of 8300 , and have incurred
debts exceeding $300 for the
( lu'pport of my family , in
addition to what has been paid
out for that purpose. Aa an plfset
there has boon received from friends
in all about $250. My aged mother
lies sick , probably in her last illness ,
and requires at least some portion of
my time and resources , In these cir
cumstances I do not feel called upon
as a matter of public intercut alone to
give an additional two montlw' time
to a motion for a now trial before thu
court in bane. My fellow citizimti ,
few or any think that the interests

und had all the dcairablo qualities for
a pavement. The pavement waa
compreBSfcd asphalt , n small specimen
of which WHO nonf. The company
clninm it ran lay the pavement in

Mr. Morao also moved thu recon-
imlurati < n of eoction 11 and oflercd the
following amundiiiont to tliu Hamo ;
On petition ot the uitizoiui to the
city conncjl auking the paving or ro-
paving of any Ntroot or part of street ,
ot not IcHfl than two ( li ) blnckn ex
tent , oxcupting it bu to adjoin paving
already laid or ordered laid at the
time of petition , the aid council shall
give ton dfiya' nolico through ihu olli-
cial nt'WHpapt * of thu city , notifying
all porHoim owning property in said
district of the filing of the petition.
The notice shall also fltato the mate
rial which the council dccidoa to
for piving said streets , and unlosu
within ten daja after first publication
of eaid notice , prottiotn are filed ,
signed by at least three-fourths of the
owners of all the front font in wiid
district , then thu council ahull have it
in their power to have said street
paved. If the material decided upon
by the council for paving shall bo ob
jectionable , then a similar protest
shall in like manner bo filed , tigncd
by three-quarters of the property
owners in tlio district , us stated before.
Said protest" shall also state thu
pavement desired , and which shall bo
adopted by the council , if requested
by throo-fourtba of thu owtiora of
front feet.
Mr. Barker opposed the reconsider
ation of thia Hcction , which is the one
providing for thu creation of n board
of public works , eta.
Mr , Boyd wild that ho would vote
for anything that would imuro the
paving of the city und prevent the du-
| ual if that object by an irnspoimihlu
majority. Ho Uyorcil making thu
city pay for tlio intL-rsection of tlio
iitroutH and the UIMOJ oppo itu Ihu lit-
II.JM and the propl-ity tnvnurawy \ for
till tlio i"nt. lie uluo favored tliu is-
MM of 200,000 in bonds , running ton
yean iu d. : ton per cent , . 1 * coming
payable each year. Mr. Boyd then
proceeded tu giro some figures on the
suhji-ct to show how the paving could
neciitvd , which were as follow * :
GF.NTLKMP.N : The more I think of
hu pivinu question the more I nru
cuuvinood that the property abutting
* n the street paved nnould pay the ex- ,
pennon , and that the city should pay ,
for paving thu Intersection of the
slr.'ota and the space opposite the
alloys. UnluAS some plan of this kind
is adopted thu people ntll not vote
bonds , because , KB has boon often
stated , the people living in the north
ern , southern and western portions ol
thu city will not vote to issue bonds
unless thu law is such that p > irt ot the
money can be spent in paving in iho
outlying portions of the city. IWi-
mntitig the cost of paving at $3 \ > l
yard and the roadway of our ntnmut
CO fcot wide , it would cost $105 COO
o pnvo one milo of street. The city
engineer informs us that there are ono
hundred miles of street in tha cityK
sixty-six miles of which are in con
stant use. If bonds are tu bo
issued by the city for pav
ing purposes , the people living
m any milo of the mxty-clx iniko
would want their proportion of the
money spent in paving in that par
ticular locality , and , a I say , unlou
the law wan so framed that thuso people -
plo know thu money wouH bo spent
in the \icinlty of their property , they
would vote against and defeat tha
Mind * . The only way , then , seems to
bo to mike thu abutting property pay
for the work and mko the city pay
'or its proportion by bondo , and whop
the people know that the city at larsjo
must pay for what by right it nl ould ]
pay for , the. bonds will bo voted. Let
the law \M \ so amnndud that the city
have power to is no $100 000 , duo in
twenty years , each ymr , if neoesnary ,
nnd in addition issue $200,000 each
year to bo paid for by the property
where the pavinc in done , at the rata
of ten ner cent of thn cost oaqh year.
Make tliu laut S200.000-duoand pay

of the city , and principal stroeto loitd-
ing north and south can bo easily
Every dollar rpont in public im
provements is just so much taken
from the ) 'iiMnrn capital of thooity.
Suppose $300,000 wan npont annually
in paviup , and the city ixmio the bonds
this amount would pave about three
-niles of ti'reots nnd it could bo done
at a c ut to tlio property abutting on

Mr. Biyd | moved aa an amendment
that the adoption of Suctions 2 and 3
bo reconsidered. Carried.
Mr. Morse then moved his amend
ment in regard to the petition for
paving to the city council.
Mr. E. Koauwater aoid ' there
neomod to bo two or three proposi
tion ) ) in this amendment. Ono was
that it required three-fourths of tha
property owners to remonstrate
against paving u atieet ; another that
it required the same proportion to

the thiid that they must doaignato
the material to bo used. Ho pro
ceeded to diHciiBS thu advantage or
disadvantage of the proposed amend
ment and wild it virtually left the
whole thing to the council.
Mr. Boyd expressed hit * intention
