tf LINOOLW , April 10. Tim BBE un
doubtedly remcinbera Leidtko , the
York county statesmen , who in the
all of 1S78TfiJ elected state auditor
on the republican ticket. In the fall
of 1870 a great political scandal waa
brewed over the fact that the afore
mentioned gentleman had appropriat
ed to his own use sundry funds ,
which , his critics claimed , should have
boon covered into the public ex
chequer. The supreme court having
endorsed the demand made upon him
by the governor for the return of Yhis
money , Mr. Leidtko refused to
COKE TO THE SCRATCH ,
but incontinently fled. From that
day to this his whereabouts nas been
merely n matter of conjecture , ho hav
ing at various times been assigneda
local habitation and a fictitious name
in Chili , in the Fadcrland and at var
ious other points in the
spacious globe. It may seem to Ti
' JT BEE that it is rather irrelevant I
bring thia subject up at present , an
BO it would bo , were it not for som
additional information which has jus
como into your correspondent's pos
session regarding it. Having happened
poned to make a chance inquiry abou
the absentee a day or two since , you
correspondent waa told that Mr
F , a worthy member of the 'Lin
coin bar , stood in confidential rcla
tions to the ex-ouic'al in a legal ca
pacity and was probably
THE ONLV PEESON
who could give any information con
cerning him. Acting on this suggcs
tion , the inquibitivo news gloatic
"happened" into Mr. F 's offlo
this morning and timidly asked tha
'accumulation of profound wisdom.

tbo lawyer , eyeing his interrogate
"Is it something personal' " aske
the legal sharp , still suspiciously.
"It is , air , " continued the reporter
relying on his cheek to carry bin
; "You wouldn't care to entrust m
vith the message ? " inquired Mr. E
till desirous of
EVAPINO THE MATTEU.
"I don't think I ought to , " re
plied the mendacious correspondent
"You see , it isn't altogether my owi
affair , somebody else is concerned ii
After a few moments of laborious
cogitation , in which his massive
brain worked like a trip hammer ,
the lawyer rummaged around amoni
a lot of papers , found what ho wtmtei
and made a copy of it. Handing it
to the reporter , ho said with some-
thin ; ? akin to a sigh :
"I take it you pro honest in this
matter. If you wish to communicate
with Mr. Leidtko , enclose a' letter to
him in that addro. s. "
The reporter gathered it in solemn
ly and read it. It waa the address ( if
a prominent barrister at Montreal
' Is Mr. Loidtko in Canada then ? "
aaked the reporter.
' ' * Mr. F. gave no direct answer to thia
innocent question , but carelessly ap
plying the end of his right thumb to
TIP OF HIS NOSE
ho made a alight convulsive move
mcmt with the lingers , accompanying
the same with an oppressive droop of
the left eyelid.
The reporter "tumbled. "
Mi. F. evidently did not care to
"givo the thing away. ' ' Forced to bo
content with tlio information gained
on this point the reporter tried an
"What was the measure of .Leidtko's
offense ? " ho asked.
"He waa merely a scapegoat , " re
plied the lawyer vigorously. "While
constructively guilty of the matter
charged , he only did what his prede
cessors had done without stint.
'In what manner was he a scape
goat ? " persisted the itemizer ,
'Ho had an unpleasant disposition to
look up back records , " answered the
lawyer. "He unearthed too many
uncomfortable facts to suit the balance
of the reigningadminiatration and they
roao in their might to crush him ,
Another campaign was coming pn
WOULD NOT HE HAFB
to allow Leidtko to bo a candidate for
re-nomination ; BO various interests

tf "What intereata do you refer to ? "
vf waa hurled at the lanyer.
r "Tho State Journal , the State
rI librarian , the governor and the eecre-
rotary of atato were prominent in it. "
I , ' 'How ' did the State- Journal come
to figure in the matter/ "
"They learned that an undesirable
publicity was to be given to their
straw bid1 manipulation of the publio
"How were the officers you name
Concerned } "
"I do not care to state explicitly
just how they were connected witl
the thing. It is sufficient to say tin
they did not cnro to Iwvo Leidtb
pursue his investigations. "
"Is there any indictment pondinj
against Leidtko now ? "
"No ; ho never was indicted. Ii
TIIK MOMENT JIB SKIPPED
the 'mveitigation' was dropped , am
those most actively engaged in j-ush
ing it took no further interest in tin
"No search'lias been made for hin
them , then ? "
"None at all. Mr. Lcidtko can ,
and very likely will , return hero whei
the present administration passes oul

Failing to extract anything clso ol
any particular interest from the ex-
auditor's attorney , your corrcspoii'
dent gratefully thanked him for the
information thus tendered and with'
dro\v. It is not likely , however , thai
Mr. Leidtko will over illuminate tl\r
streets of Lincoln with the sunlight o !
hin presence. A general opinion pre
vails hero that the lamented states
man , in taxing his hurried departure ,
found a surce.ico from complicated
DOMESTIC1 KMI1AUHASSMKNTS ,
which had for : \ lorg time sorely
vexed his soul , and that ho would bo
extremely loth to voluntarily renew
hin position in society.
* For the sake of consistency , by
the way , and to relieve your corre
spondent of the unwitting nasnranco
ho gave the lawyer tlmt ho wished to
communicate with Mr. Loidtko , it
might bo as well to mail a copy of the
paper containing this article to the
Hon. W. S. Walker. B. 0. L. , Bar
rister , Montreal , C.mada. It may
ttrike THE BEE that your correspond
ent has performed tin's task in a bung

KANSAS CITY , Mo. , April 10. The
Journal to-morrow will contain n
special from Topcka Riving u summary
ot thu condition of Kiiiisan crops tu-
ported to the state board of ugricul-
: urc :
Concerning the item of winter wheat
it is estimated thuro has been a de
crease in the urea sown as compared
with last year. The greater portion
of the decrease occurs in the eastern
part of thu state , where farmers
have for the last thrco years had
bad luck in growing it. It is
estimated in round numbers that
the amount of loss will not bo less
than § 500,000. Winter wheat looks
nicely at present , and all correspond
ents agree that a heavy crop will bo
harvested , provided the outlook con
tinues aa oncour.igtncaa at the present
time. The weather lias boon so favor
able that the secretary ot the state
board feels warranted in saying that
the loss from freezing and other
causes will not amount to over 1 pur
cent. A majority of the correspond
ents ngrco that the early sown wheat
promises a greater yield than
that put in later in thu
fall , and in those instances where the
late Bowing is good they are almost
unanimous in the opinion that the favorable
vorablo winter alone accounts for the
fact. Taken altogether , winter whca
never looked better nnd never prom
ised greater returns to the rgricul
turint than to-day. The prosperity
