A CITY WITHOUT A GOVERNMENT.
Kcdhot Elections Ewrj Tear, bat the
Sleeted Never QuallTy.
Tho town of Humboldt, Kan., Is an
organized city of tho third class, with
1500 people, and for 18 years there Jiaa
.not been a municipal officer in tho town,
although tho city election has been held
every year. Thereby hangs a tale, and
as it contains a warning against tho vot
ing of bonds and going into debt it
thonld bo told.
In tho spring of 1870 there was pro
jected south from Junction City to Par
sons a railroad called the southern
branch of tho Union Pacific. Humboldt
was sot a young town then, but bond
voting was tho fashion, and Humboldt,
which was old enough to know better,
voted bonds to tho extent of $175,000
for tho road. Not satisfied with this
dobt, in 187G tho town voted $25,000 to
the Fort Scott, Humboldt and Western,
a road known in tho west as tho "Old
Fifth ParalleL This road was graded
from Fort Scott to Humboldt, but it
was never equipped. Tho grade may be
seen today by passengers riding along
tho Missouri Pacific But tho grade did
not bring tho flood of trade that was ex
pected, and tho bonds being sold to the
usual "innocent purchaser" the town
began to skirmish around the courts to
keep from paying an unjust debt The
inevitable came, and In 187G tho town,
as a legal corporation, dissolved into
Then when the officer of tho court
camo to Humboldt in 1876 to compel the
mayor to turn over the interest duo on
tho bonds he found that, although there 1
had been aredhot election tho spring
before, and although there was a man
there called mayor, there wa3 in deed
and in legal truth no mayor at alL
The situation has remained the same
for IS years. In two years more tho debt
will be outlawed. Then Humboldt is
coming up to breathe the free air once
mora as a municipal corporation. At
present the programme is written upon
a "tangled web." Everyyear the mayor
and dry council aro elected. The old ad
ministration retires and tho new admin
istration comes in only it doesn't It
comes to tho threshold, but it doesn't
enter. It does not "qualify."
Tho council meets without tho oath of
office. The mayor is merely chairman
of a committee of citizens tho council
and tho meetings of tho committee are
held regularly. Ordinances are passed
giving tha city marshal and tho street
commissioner power to keep tha town
orderly and clean. Tho council cannot
handle any public mosey. Tho little
money teed by tho council is raised by
private subscription among the residents
of tho town, and as it doesn't go through
aay red ts$e machine and as every one
who pays these volunteer taxes knows
just how much he pays far everything
tho mosey is not squandered. It is, in
fact, a business administration. The
city marshal is only a fiat functionary.
As city marshal ho has power to do
nothing except scare small boys who
throw melon rinds in the alleys and to
notify owners of pigpens to cleanup,
but as constable of Humboldt township
he can arrest men and esfcrcQ tha laws
as well as the best policeman in the
The street commissioner has no power,
save with the consent of tho people,
whose property he grades up or down.
He is a sort of advisory board. The city
clerk issues licenses to show which aro
clearly fiat and his records of the pro
ceedings of the council would have so
weight in any court 2ono cf these ap
pointive officers qualifies. The whole
machinery of administration in the little
tows is carried on by common consent
The present mayor tho man who was
elected, but who has not qualified and
will not is W. T. ilcElroy, editor of
the Humboldt Union. 3Ir. HcElroy has
been in the little town for 30 years, and
his paper is 29 years old. He thinks
when the citizens get out of this hole
the man who offers to vote a band on
the tows site will bo banged.
He says that the city stands ready to
compromise with tho "innocent pur
chasers" of the bonds for exactly what
the purchasers are alleged to have paid,
25 cents an the dollar. This propositi an,
he declares, has been made and rejected
several times. Every few men tha an of
ficer from Bomo court tries to find funds
of tho extinct corporation is some bask
in the country. 2ioi long ago the officer
tried Iola. But so far tho courts have
been usable to get the funds. The little
tows seems to have tho best of tho con
test and only time will release it from
tho trouble. Memphis Commercial-Ap

Fortune is once more looking favor
ably upon tho Battenbergs. Amorement
is afoot in Bulgaria to place Prince
Joseph upon the throne occupied for a
few brief years by his gifted brother
Alexander, and as the present ruler is
rapidly losing his popularity, which was
never great, the change is not at all
improbable. Joseph's brother Henry,
tho husband of Princess Beatrice, has
been again received into high favor by
bis mother-in-law, Queen Victoria,
whom ho had offended by fancied slights
upon her daughter.
Today wo learn that the British ad
miralty has adopted an invention by
Prince Louis Battenberg, who is an offi
cer in the royal navy. Last year, as re
corded in Tho Sun, ho devised a new
semapboro for signaling aboard ship,
which, however, did not turn out to be
of much practical use. His second in
vention, described as a course indicator,
has bad a better fata Tho admiralty,
as the result of exhaustive trials, has
ordered that the flagships, battleships
ana cruisers bo fitted with it. Many ex
perienced naval officers reported ad
versely upon this couree indicator on tho
ground that it was calculated to cngen
dcr carelessness among navigating offi
cers, but the prince's influence natural
ly prevailed. New York Sun's Euro-
