    W. B. Garlick, the Contractor, Will Have Charge of the City's Thoroughfares for Two Years.
    W. B. Garlick, the new street commissioner, has taken hold of the work in his office in a manner which would indicate that he knows just what he is doing. He is a thorough business man and will adopt business principles in conducting the affairs of that office. Mr. Garlick is an unpretentious man, but taking his work of the past thirty years in this city into consideration there are few his equal.
    He is a native of Illinois, having been born at Beardstown, in that state, in 1838. He resided there until 1861, when he enlisted in the Thirteenth Illinois infantry. He served three years in the civil war and one year in a rebel prison, in Georgia. At the close of the rebellion he returned to to Illinois and shortly after moved to this city. In 1871 he married Miss E. S. Sackett, of his native town, and brought her to "Old Wyandotte." During his long residence here he has been engaged in the business of building contractor, and he has probably erected more building in the Sunflower metropolis than any other contractor.
    Mr. Garlick has a host of strong friends here and many times has his name been mentioned for different political positions. In his selection of street commissioner Mayor Twiss made no mistake. He is to be congratulated for the appointment of a gentleman of such business sagacity and integrity as Mr. Garlick possesses. The position of street commissioner is a difficult one to fill, but Mr. Garlick is equal to the emergency and will make as efficient and official in that department as the city ever had."

    General Ely Samuel Parker Was a Full-blooded Indian.
    The death of General Ely Samuel Parker at Fairfield, Conn. leaves alive but one of the gallant band of military men who composed General Grant's staff during the civil war. The survivor is General Horace Porter, of New York.
    General Parker had a varied and picturesque career. He was a full-blooded Seneca Indian and was born on the Tonawanda reservation, in New York, says the Denver Republican. He was chief of the Six Nations and was king of the Tuscaroras, and with him dies the last of the chiefs of the Senacas.
    General Parker was a remarkable example of what natural ability and an aggressive spirit can for a man placed as he was in his childhood. His Indian name was Do-Ne-Hoh-Ga-Wa, which anglicized means "Keeper of the Western Gate." He was a grandson of old Chief Red Jacket, who was one of Washington's best allies during the war of the Revolution, and in his own person he carried his loyalty to the republic with the same consistency as his brave old progenitor. The silver medal which Red Jacket presented to General Washington as a token of the friendship of the Senecas for the young republic, a portrait of which is in possession of Mrs. Amos Bissell, to whose daughter General Parker married, will be buried with him. This is in accordance with an unwritten law of the Six Nations when the last chief of the race ceases to live.
    General Parker was educated at Ellicottsville, N. Y., where he took the degree of civil engineer. He subsequently studied law, but never practiced, owing, it is said, to the members of the New York Bar Association, who objected to association with an Indian. After his admission to the bar he lived for some time at Washington, and then at Galena, Ill., where he became acquainted with General Grant. The friendship there formed with Grant never weakened, and when the civil war broke out Grant chose Parker as one of his military staff. During the war he acted as Grant's military secretary, and wrote the surrender of Lee at Appomatox in 1865.
    When General Grant became president he breveted Parker as brigadier general and made him commissioner of Indian affairs, a position which he held until 1871. For a number of years he was purchasing agent for the New York police department and was also superintendent and architect of New Yory [sic] police stations. In 1867 he married Miss Minnie Sackett, daughter of Mrs. Amos Bissell, of this city. On the occasion of the marriage General Grant gave the bride away. One daughter is issue of the marriage.
    To all the official positions which General Parker filled he brought a rare degree of tact and ability. He was conspicuously faithful to every trust reposed in him and never swerved a hairsbreadth from the strict line of duty and honor. His education was broad and cultured and he was one of the most effective speakers from Republican platforms in New York state. He was about 65 years old when he died.
    General Parker was a Scottish Rite Mason, a member of the Loyal Legion and of Reno post, G. A. R. of New York.
    Mrs. Bissell will leave tonight for New York to attend the funeral services. General Parker will be buried in Forest Lawn cemetery, near Buffalo, N. Y., where the bones of Chief Red Jacket, his grandfather, are interred. He had three brothers and one sister, none whom survive him."

    All Because of a Report That Doster Has Appointed a Republican Stenographer
    Topeka, Kas., Dec. 6.—(Special.) There is "weeping and wailing and gnashing of teeth" in Populist circles on account of the report that Chief Justice-elect Frank Doster has appointed Guy Sackett as his stenographer. If there is any man in Kansas whom the Populists have a grudge against it is Sackett. He is a redhot Republican and was the stenographer who reported the proceedings of many of the investigating committees during the last session of the legislature.
    Acting Secretary Ely, of the fusion Democratic state committee, was an applicant for the place and he had the indorsement of all the prominent free silver Democrats and Populists, but this did him no good. It seems that Doster got it into his head that the Republican party contained the most competent men for public positions and selected one as his stenographer. In his selection he happened to get one who was particularly offensive to the Populists."

    Discuss Matters of Interest Which Will Come Up at the June Meeting in Milwaukee.
    A conference of the officials of the A. O. U. W. (Ancient Order of United Workmen) was held yesterday at the Coates House relative to business matters that will come before the next annual session that will convene in Milwaukee in June. At the conference were J. G. Tate, of Lincoln, Neb., supreme master workman of the order; W. S. Robson of Texas, supreme foreman; M. W. Sackett, of Meadville, Pa., supreme recorder; Joseph E. Riggs, of Lawrence, Kans., past supreme master of workmen, and ex-Lieutenant Governor A. P. Riddle, of Kansas, chairman of the statistical committee.
    The conference was over simply the business matters of the order, and there was nothing to said of it, so the representatives declared, except that the order was still flourishing and had paid out as benefits since its organization, over $100,000,000. The growth and continued prosperity of the order was the one feature that gave great satisfaction to the officers."

    "Barton County Texas Fever
    To the Journal.
    In your daily issue of September 30, 1897, you have an article headed "For Importing Texas Fever," which reads as follows:
    "Lamar, Mo., Sept. 29.—(Special) William Hennis and Robert Sackett, farmers, residing near Liberal, fifteen miles west of here, have been indicted by the grand jury for bringing cattle into this (Barton) county which were infected with Texas fever. They admitted their guilt and gave bond to appear at the January term of the circuit court."
    William Ennis (not Hennis) and Robert Sackett were indicted by the grand jury of Barton county for violating the governor's quarantine proclamation against bringing cattle into Barton county from Cherokee county, Kas. They are not charged with bringing into Barton county cattle infected with Texas fever or any other disease, or for bringing cattle into Barton county from a district infected with Texas fever or any other disease. Their cattle are Herefords and Shorthorns, entirely free from disease. These men did not admit their guilt, but, on the contrary, they denied that they had violated any valid law. If they had admitted their guilt there would have been nothing for the court to do but impose a penalty provided for by law instead of having them give bond for their appearance at court and answer the indictment.
    These men, as most citizens of Barton county know, are among our best people, and peaceable and law-abiding, and this article published in your paper does them great injustice, besides it is, in substance, not true. We think, in justice to them, you ought to correct the statement so published in your paper. There is now a motion to quash the indictment, which will probably be disposed of at this term of the court. There are those who believe the prosecution was instigated by persons connected with a slander suit tried at our last term of the circuit court, in which Robert Sackett was a witness, and, for aught we know, some of the same animus may have actuated your Lamar correspondent in the special sent you from this place. Very respectfully. Thurman & Wray. Lamar, Sept. 30, '97."

    Excursionists From Minneapolis Gain an Idea of the Southwestern Metropolis.
    The special train that is carrying the Minneapolis (Minn.) Journal's excursion party from that city more than 7,000 miles through the West and the Southwest on a thirty days' trip, reached Kansas City over the Burlington yesterday afternoon at 1 o'clock and remained here until 5 o'clock, when it departed for El Paso and the City of Mexico over the "Katy." The train consists ….
    The train left Minneapolis at 7 o'clock Saturday evening and arrived at the Union depot here yesterday on schedule time. It left on time last evening and will make its next stop at 11 o'clock today at Dallas, Tex. From there the party will go to San Antonio and the City of Mexico where five days will be spent. It will visit a few interesting points of the country, then come back to the United States, go to California, where Los Angeles, Santa Monica, Oakland and San Francisco will be visited, then home by way of Salt Lake, Denver and Omaha and reach Minneapolis Sunday, February 27.
    The trip was planned by the Journal as a piece of enterprise, the expenses of the members of the party being about one-half of what such a trip would ordinarily cost.
    The train and all details of the trip are in charge of Mr. A. W. Warnock, of the business department of the Journal, who has all plans so nicely completed as to leave nothing lacking for comfort.
    The members of the party had dinner served on the train yesterday prior to their arrival in the city, and as soon as the train reached the depot they started out to see the city during the afternoon. Some of them had friends in the city who met them and spent the afternoon visiting or seeing the city.

    "Like a thief in the night death called to rest Mrs. Mandy Margaret Johnson, the beloved wife of Samuel Roy Johnson, of the Gobler vicinity. She was age 39 years, 2 months and 7 days.
    Mrs. Johnson died at her home March 20, 1937 after a short illness of acute indigestion.
    Mrs. Johnson was born in Kewanee in New Madrid County. In 1920 she moved to near New Survey and has since made her home there. Mr. and Mrs. Johnson had been married almost 25 years. To this union eight children, seven boys and one daughter, were born, who with the husband survive. They are as follows: Leroy James of St. Francesville, Ill., James Franklin of Berkley, Calif., Rufus R., Wesley Vines, Margaret Ann, Dallas Terry, Hubert Elmer, and Richard Ralph of Steele.
    The deceased had many friends and was one to always lend a helping hand in sickness and death and it is said that she would lay down her life for a friend—no greater love has no man that he that lays down his life for a friend.
    She is sadly missed by all who loved her. She has gone to Heaven and we cling to the thought that "she cannot come to us, but we can go to her."
