Winfield already supports three retail drug houses; but if the addition of another will not seriously detract from them, we say welcome.

S. laws, need expect no favors at his hands.

                                                      The C. S. Smith Road.

One of the most important roads in the county, petitioned for by C. S. Smith, and two or three hundred others, was located last Friday by Messrs. Lucius Walton, E. G. Willett, and Jas. Vanorsdal as viewers, and W. W. Walton, as Surveyor, from the Arkansas River eight miles east via the brewery, and Lowrey’s ford, on the Walnut River, to the West end of Court House Street in Menor’s addition to Winfield.
This road has put the county to considerable expense, there having been two surveys during Mr. Hemenway’s term of office, the report of each irregular. Not being discouraged, however, the petitioners employed A. H. Green as counsel and commenced again, the result being the order for a new survey.
The citizens of Vernon and Beaver townships turned out en masse and showed the viewers by their presence how much in earnest they were in regard to the matter, as they have been compelled for three years to travel three or four miles in a roundabout way to get to their market town and county seat.
The viewers reported “the route practicable, of great public utility, and much needed by the traveling community,” and advised its immediate opening. On the one-thousand dollars damage claim of John Lowrey, Esq., (the road having cut off about three acres of his land) they awarded him $50, to which of course he excepts, and consequently the end is not yet. Mr. Green has had prepared by the Surveyor an elaborate plat, showing Winfield and the roads for miles around it, in order to better impress the commissioners of the importance of this one. We await the action of the County Commissioners for further information.

Mr. Green was a captain during the rebellion, and carries recommendations signed by six or eight generals, among whom is the name of Gen. Sherman.

                           THE CENTENNIAL REFORMERS OF WINFIELD.
                                       Driven into their Holes and Smoked out.
                                       A Chapter of History Worth Preserving.
Recap: Involved Winfield Township: Republican local hierarchy versus local Democrats and Independents (self-styled Reformers).
At meeting in Courthouse 45 “Reformers” tried to control the organization of meeting called to obtain candidate for State Senator nomination from 88th representative district.

“Suddenly A. H. Green, a ‘leading Reformer,’ took the floor and called the meeting to order and nominated as chairman one of his followers. . . . James Kelly, chairman of the Republican Township Committee, called the meeting to order and L. J. Webb nominated Capt. J. S. Hunt as chairman. A rising vote was called for, resulting in 39 for, 12 against Hunt, a few not voting. J. P. Short was chosen secretary. . . . The balloting commenced and a large number of names had been registered, all of which voted for what were known as the Manning delegates, whereupon ‘the Reformers’ discovered that they were in the wrong conven­tion. . . . Subsequently, and after nearly 100 ballots had been cast, and many voters had retired from the hall, W. P. Hackney and two or three others returned to the meeting and complained that the call for the meeting was irregular and he thereupon gave notice that on next Tuesday Aug. 8th at 4 o’clock p.m., the Republicans would hold another meeting. He and Tansy denounced the resolutions [made voters pledge themselves to support Hayes & Wheeler] as a gag and the meeting untimely, etc. Aligned against them: Prof. A. B. Lemmon, E. S. Torrance, L. J. Webb, Samuel Burger, and S. W. Greer.
The Cowley County Telegram dated August 4, issued on Monday morning, August 8, had the following article.
                                      MORE CONTEMPTIBLE TRICKERY.
Within the past few days Cowley County has been the scene of more of that contemptible trickery and political intrigue and corrupt practices which has made the leaders of the Republican party, in the county, so odious in the sight of an honest people. And especially was Winfield the ground on which one of the dirtiest of these jobs was put up. Knowing that if the masses of the party were present at the primary convention, called for the purpose of electing 10 delegates to the county and district conventions, to be held on the 12th of the present month, the delegates selected by them, and who would, without question, vote for their men, no matter how odious they were, or what their records were, would stand no show for election. So they hit upon a plan whereby their friends would be sure to be present while the opposition would be busily at work on their farms and in their shops.
The day set by the county central committee was the 8th—the call so read—the Republican organ so stated in an editorial, and urged that upon that day every voter should turn out. Right in the face of this they quietly send out their strikers to tell the “faithful” that they must come in four days earlier, as the convention would be held then and their presence was needed. On the morning of the earlier day determined upon, a few posters were posted up in out-of-the-way places calling a primary for that afternoon. So far their little plan worked well, but when the Republicans who were opposed to this way of transacting business saw this, they went to work and gathered together a force suffi­cient to scoop them, which they would undoubtedly have done, had not one of the ring-leaders of the corrupt gang rushed through a resolution requiring that each man who voted should subscribe a pledge to support the nominees on the National, State, and county ticket. The “gag” a hundred or more Republi­cans refused to swallow, and they had it all their own way, electing their ticket by a majority equal to the number of their friends present. The whole proceedings were corrupt, illegal, and scandalous, and engineered by a set of political tricksters of whom the people of the whole county entertain feelings of the greatest disgust. It is only a continuation of the corrupt practices they have been foisting upon the people as Republican­ism for years past—and such a job as will cause the honest voters of the county to repudiate their entire outfit at the polls next November.
The men who managed the affair are respectively candidates for State Senator, County Superintendent, Probate Judge, Repre­sentative, District Judge, and County Attorney. Let the voters spot them. . . .

On Tuesday, August 8, before 4 o’clock, Cliff Wood, A. H. Green, T. K. Johnston, John D. Pryor, N. M. Powers, Joe Mack, and 5 or 6 others who do not desire to have their names published, because they do not approve of the action taken, slipped over to the courthouse one at a time by different routes and pretended to hold a meeting. . . . A few minutes before 4 p.m., Mr. Manning went to the courthouse to have the bell rung and upon entering the courthouse found that C. M. Wood was occupying a chair at the table as chairman and John D. Pryor occupying another chair in the capacity of secretary. Mr. Manning took the floor and inquired if the meeting was organized, and to what style of proceedings it had arrived whereupon a “reformer” at once moved an adjournment, which was at once put and carried, and ten of the purifiers of Cowley County politics fled the room in such haste as to leave three or four others who had not fully comprehended the trick, sitting in wonder at the unseemly haste of those present, and expecting to have a chance to vote for delegates.
As soon as Mr. Manning entered the room a bystander rang the bell, whereupon nearly one hundred voters poured over to the courthouse. A meeting was organized by electing S. D. Klingman as chairman and B. F. Baldwin secretary. The action of the “reformers” was related to the meeting. A committee on resolu­tions was appointed, which soon reported the following, which was adopted by sections, with but one dissenting voice to the first resolution.
They passed more resolutions, which endorsed the previous action taken.
Manning and his group won again!

EXPLOSION. On Tuesday night, of last week, in Green’s drug store, one of the coal oil lamps in the chandelier caught on fire and exploded. The fire was soon extinguished by destroying one or two pieces of bed clothing, and applying a bucket of water. No damage done, however, excepting the counter being considerably scorched and the glass broken out of the show-case.

                                                         THE SITUATION.
EDITOR COURIER, Dear Sir: I wonder if the people of this county fully understand the animus of the opposition in this place, to Col. Manning? Nobody doubts but that he would make an able, energetic, faithful worker for the interests of his con­stituents. But there is a certain bank and broker faction here, which never will consent that any man whom they believe will do anything to ameliorate the condition of the poor shall be placed in a position where he can be of any service to them. Who are they, who are so fearful lest Col. Manning be elected to the State Senate this fall?
Read & Robinson, bankers; R. B. Waite, S. D. Pryor, James Jordon, Curns & Manser, money lenders; with such fellows as A. H. Green and W. P. Hackney, attorneys. It is the same faction that are so violently opposed to the election of Judge Campbell.
Why do they oppose Judge Campbell? Because in every case of the foreclosure of their cut-throat mortgages, Judge Campbell, so far as he can do so legally, throws the strong arm of the law around the poor man. These men want the usury laws abolished; and consequently will not consent that any man go to the legisla­ture who they cannot use for that purpose.
They are afraid that Manning will be able, in some way, to do something to cut down their three percent per month. They will not consent that Manning shall go to the legislature, lest in some way he may obtain such legislation as will make it possible for Cowley County to secure a railroad. This three percent ring do not want railroads. They do not want anything that might by any possibility cut down interest on money below the present ruinous rates.

For these reasons these money changers and extortioners will spare neither time nor money, will stop at no slander or abuse to defeat both Col. Manning and W. P. Campbell. Hundreds of people in Cowley County are already beginning to feel the grip of this soulless money power at their throats. Will they stand still and allow themselves to be choked to death without an effort? CITIZEN.

                                          WINFIELD, KANSAS, Sept. 9, 1876.
C. M. Scott, Esq.: DEAR SIR: In reply to your question as to Manning bolting the Republican ticket in 1870, I have this to say. The party was organized by the appointment of a Republican Central Convention of one from each voting precinct in the County. This was done in Convention at Dexter. At the same time a delegate was elected to represent this County in the State Convention and he was admit­ted. Col. Manning, although there and claiming to represent the county, was rejected. That Central Committee called a Republican County Convention to be held at Winfield, I don’t remember the date. At the appointed time the Convention met in the building, then unfinished, in which Green’s Drug Store is situated, and organized by the election of John Irwin as Chairman and myself as Secretary.
All the precincts were represented but Winfield, and we nominated a straight Republican ticket. Afterwards a People’s Convention was called at Winfield and E. C. Manning nominated for Representative; Judge T. B. Ross, of Winfield, for Probate Judge; A. A. Jackson, of Winfield, for County Clerk; John M. Pattison, of Rock, for Sheriff; William Cook, of Winfield, for Register of Deeds. The other members on the ticket escape my memory. My recollection is the ticket was composed of three Republicans and three Democrats. This ticket was the only ticket nominated that fall against the Republicans.
Manning was defeated at the polls, but the easy conscience of the County Board resulted in the throwing out of the votes returned from six precincts, resulting in Mr. Manning being declared elected.
I commenced a contest against him, and the notice was served on T. H. Johnson at Manning’s residence, he (Manning) having absented himself to avoid such service.
When the Legislature met, the contestor, H. B. Norton (who was the choice of a majority of the voters of the county as aforesaid at that election), was very sick, and confined to his bed until towards the close of the session: hence the contest was abandoned. Respectfully,
                                                         W. P. HACKNEY.
Winfield Courier, September 28, 1876.
Monday evening the crowd around Fuller’s bank and near the apple wagons on Main street had an opportunity to see the neatest magisterial job that has been performed in this county for some time.

Information was given Sheriff Walker that one of the apple peddlers from Arkansas on our streets was the notorious Charles Howertson, of Knox County, Missouri, who, in July last shot and killed one Hiner, near Edina, in that county. The informant, one of the best citizens of our county (we refrain from giving his name for prudential reasons), knew Howertson personally a few years ago, and recognized him in his new role of apple vender.
Walker prepared to arrest him and to make assurance doubly sure, called in A. H. Green, who performed the part of confidence man to perfection. When everything was in readiness, Green stepped up behind their man and spoke out quick and sharp, “How do you do, Howertson?” at the same time extending his hand for a “shake.” Howertson, taken by surprise, of course, turned round quickly when the name was spoken and advanced a step to meet the supposed acquaintance.
At this juncture Walker closed his vice-like grip on the Missourian’s arm and informed him that he was a prisoner. Howertson made an attempt to draw his revolver, which was in his right hand pocket, but of course failed. The boys were too much for him. They unarmed him and marched him off to the calaboose.
When informed of the charge against him, he admitted that he did shoot a man in Missouri last July, and added that if the Sheriff hadn’t got the drop on him, he would have shot him. He says the man Hiner that he shot is not dead yet, but the Hiner that his brother shot died. It seems that the two Howertsons got into a difficulty with the two Hiners, which terminated in the death of one of the latter and the wounding of the other.
The Howertsons fled to Arkansas, and have eluded the offi­cers up to the present time. Sheriff Walker telegraphed to the Sheriff of Knox County, notifying him of the arrest. The Howertsons are said to be desperate and lawless men. They were “rebel bushwhackers” during the late war and led a terrible life.

                                                             BASE BALL.
                                                    Attorneys vs. Businessmen.
That game of base ball on last Tuesday afternoon between the two nines, one of which was made up of attorneys exclusively and the other of businessmen, of this city, was decidedly an interesting one. The players, and a large crowd of spectators, assembled upon the ground, south of town, at [? failed to give time ?] o’clock p.m., soon after which the game commenced, with the attorneys in the field and the businessmen at the bat.

The first man called to the bat was Mr. Thos. Copeland, who made a fair hit, making a home run. Next came Geo. Robinson and A. C. Dickinson, both “fouled out.” Fred Hunt then went to bat and by a fair hit made second base, where he was left by Sid Major being put out by a fly catch, and being the third man out, when the businessmen went into the field and the attorneys to the bat. Mr. L. J. Webb was the first attorney called to the bat and “fouled out.” Mr. Buckman then followed with a fair hit and went to second base. Jno. Pryor went out on three strikes. A. H. Green then went to first base by a good hit, and Mr. Buckman at the same time making a score; Mr. Jennings went out on three strikes, being the third man out, put the side out, leaving Mr. Green on second base. The score was even at the end of the first inning, the businessmen gained five in the second, and the attorneys gained three in the third, leaving the businessmen only two ahead. The businessmen went seven more ahead in the fourth inning and sixteen in the fifth, leaving the score stand as will be seen below. The game was well played considering the fact that most of the players had not played a game of base ball for years and several of them never in their lives. Considerable interest was manifested in the game.
At the beginning of the fifth inning, Mr. Green withdrew from the attorneys, whose place was supplied by Will Holloway, and Geo. Robinson withdrew from the businessmen, whose place was supplied by Mr. Guinn, of Sheridan Township, who made during this inning the strongest hit made during the game and made a home run. O. M. Seward, of the attorneys, did excellent playing behind the bat. The game was called at the close of the fifth inning, at 5 o’clock p.m.; duration of the game 2 hours and 15 minutes.
Score given after article shows that Businessmen had 44 runs; Attorneys had 19 runs.
Players—Businessmen: Copeland, c.; Dickinson, p.; Hunt, F. C., s.s.; Robinson, 1st b.; Major, 2nd b.; Stuart, 3rd b.; Wallis, B. M., l. f.; Hunt, J. S., c. f.; Starwalt, r. f.

A. H. Green, lawyer and real estate broker, has issued the first number of a newspaper entitled The Kansas News, and devoted to the interests of the county of Cowley and the city of Winfield. He has already printed an edition of 5,000 copies, and proposes to increase it to 10,000. He is circulating the paper throughout the State, in the hotels of the principal cities further East, and on all railroad trains running in the State. It contains a complete description of the county, its productions, industries, trade, and products, and will be an invaluable advertisement for our county and city. We have the best county and the liveliest city in the State, but located as we are, away from the lines of railroad travel, men who have money and brains desiring to locate in Kansas have not visited us in such numbers as have examined other portions of the State, and though we have a goodly number of that class of men, particularly men of brains, yet a still larger number is desirable. If such be induced to visit our county, they will be pretty sure to locate. What they need are the facts, and A. H. Green has been to a large expense in time and money to lay the facts before such men. He is entitled to the gratitude of all who are interested in the growth and prosperity of this county. A man who can exhibit such enterprise will do your business efficiently. Give him a call.
Arkansas City Traveler, October 31, 1877.
A. H. GREEN, of Winfield, issued a five column real estate paper last week, containing a map of Cowley County, a history of its growth and prosperity, and other valuable information. Green is an energetic businessman, and furnishes the best of references.

The most prominent real estate dealers are J. C. Fuller, E. C. Manning, and A. H. Green.
Winfield Courier, November 15, 1877.
IRA McCOMMON and Jos. Harter have bought out the drug store of A. H. Green and will continue the business under the firm name of McCommon & Harter. Both are industrious, enterprising, and careful young men; with good habits and the good will of the whole community. Of course they will succeed.

                                                          Winfield Socially.
The coming winter bids fair to be the most pleasant, socially, that Winfieldians have ever experienced. Many changes have taken place in the circle of young folks since the good old frontier days. New and attractive young ladies and gentlemen have settled amongst us, giving to Winfield an air of city life and gaiety when they meet “in convention assembled.” The recent Thanksgiving ball was followed so closely by Miss Kate Millington’s “dancing party,” and both so largely attended, that the indications are that those “who look for pleasure can hope to find it here” this winter. The last mentioned party, to use a stereotyped expression, was a “brilliant success.” Probably of all the gay and charming gatherings that have “tripped the fantastic,” etc., in our city, this was the most pleasant. The music was excellent, the refreshments good, and the polite and attentive demeanor of the fair hostess most agreeable.

The following persons were fortunate enough to be present at this party: Judge W. P. Campbell, of Wichita; W. W. Walton, of Topeka; Herman Kiper, of Atchison; Fred C. Hunt, W. C. Walker, Bert Crapster, Ed. P. Greer, Charley Harter, J. C. Fuller, Mr. and Mrs. J. Holloway, Mr. and Mrs. A. H. Green, Mr. and Mrs. Virgil Harter, Mr. and Mrs. A. E. Baird, Mr. and Mrs. J. C. Earnest, Mr. and Mrs. James Kelly, Mr. and Mrs. A. J. Thompson, Miss Ina Daniels, S. Suss, Josephine E. Mansfield, G. E. Walker, Mary McGaughy, M. B. Wallis, Fannie Wallis, Wilbur Dever, Maggie J. Dever, W. C. Root, Jennie Hahn, W. Gillelen, Mattie Coldwell, J. N. Harter, Carrie Olds, T. C. Copeland, Katie McGaughy, O. M. Seward, Nora Coldwell, Dr. Strong, Amie Bartlett.
Of course, they one and all enjoyed themselves; wished the occasion might be often repeated, and voted (in their minds at least) Miss Kate to be the most “social campaign organizer” in the city.
Winfield Courier, December 13, 1877.
                                                           COURT ITEMS.
Among the most important cases were the following.
Green vs. Requa, in which Green sought to recover $71 as a balance due on an account for legal services. The services were performed by L. J. Webb, and the account was assigned by Webb to Green. Mr. Webb had received $429 and claimed there was still $71 due him. The jury gave verdict in favor of Mrs. Requa, but a motion was made for a new trial, which was granted, and the verdict was set aside.
Winfield Courier, January 3, 1878.
A. H. Green is the boss real estate man of Southern Kansas. He is doing a magnificent work in scattering broadcast all over the United States his description of Cowley County, and of the advantages of buying farms and locating in this county. We happened to notice the mail he sent out on Tuesday morning. It consisted of about two bushels of matter addressed to almost everybody that would be likely to influence immigrants and real estate buyers. His postage for that single day must have been fifteen dollars or more, and this was only one of the many days in which he has mailed such advertising matter. The people of this county who have property for sale owe it to A. H. Green to give him a very liberal patronage in the real estate business. When a man will spend his time and money freely for the good of his county, the least that its citizens should do to second his efforts is to put their business into his hands.

A. H. GREEN never does things on a small scale. When he advertises he either takes a whole column or a whole paper, and is not satisfied with a circulation of moderate extent. See his new double half column advertisement in this issue, and when you have real estate to sell or buy, be sure and give him a call. He is doing a great work in showing up the county and its advantages to the people of other states.

                                                   WHEN TAXES ARE DUE.
Taxes for each year are due on and after November 1st.
One-half of the taxes may be paid on or before December 20th and the other half on or before the 20th of the following June.

If the whole tax is paid before December 20th, five percent is deducted from one-half of the tax.
If one-half is not paid on December 20th, five percent is added.
Another five percent is added on the 20th of March following, and again on the 20th of June, when the land is advertised for sale to pay the taxes that remain unpaid. The sale takes place on the first Tuesday of September. Three years after the sale, deeds are made to the purchasers and the land is lost beyond redemption.
Non-residents who have occasion to inquire about the taxes on their land in Cowley County should enclose twenty-five cents to A. H. Green, Winfield, Kansas, to pay for getting the information.
Winfield Courier, March 21, 1878.
A. H. Green is alive to business. He has got up a 6,000 edition of his real estate paper to circulate on the railroad trains among the emigrants to Kansas. It is of course attended by large expense, but will doubtless bring to this county a great number of land buyers who will all come to see Green and what he has for sale. Persons who have land for sale would do well to put it in the hands of A. H. Green at once.
Arkansas City Traveler, April 10, 1878.
A. H. GREENE [GREEN], of Winfield, is doing a good thing for Cowley County in the matter of inducing immigration. He has one man at Topeka, one at Wichita, and four at Winfield to look after parties desiring to locate, and to distribute his 12,000 copies of his real estate register.
Winfield Courier, April 11, 1878.
Mr. E. S. Bedilion, District Clerk, furnishes us with the following list of cases which will probably be for trial at the next term of the District Court commencing on Monday, May 6th, 1878.

Land buyers are beginning to arrive, and most of them buy readily. Green is getting many calls for land, and will doubtless sell your farm if you give him a good chance.

                                                           REAL ESTATE.
Land can be had here at prices quite as low as those at which the land in the distant west is selling, and one acre here is worth twice as much as the same quality of land three hundred miles west of Kansas City. Parties wishing information on this subject should address A. H. Green, at Winfield, who is one of the most enterprising and reliable real estate dealers in the West.

Mr. Millhouse will immediately make an addition and veranda to his house and improve his farm. He has gone to Iowa to settle up his affairs and will then return to stay. He is a gentleman of enterprise and intelligence.

We predict that within the next three months A. H. Green will control the most extensive land and collection office in Southern Kansas. His office is now the center of attraction for both buyers and sellers of land, and the number of letters of inquiry he is receiving is simply immense. This we are glad to see, for he has expended more money and time to induce immigration to this county in the last few months than perhaps any other twenty men in it, and his efforts should be appreciated by every citizen interested in the welfare and prosperity of the county. Mr. Green has been a citizen of this place for nearly eight years and is known as an active and reliable businessman. His real estate and his collection business are both conducted on strict systematic bases; his office is neat, pleasant, and well furnished, and we are not surprised to see land buyers make it their headquarters.
Winfield Courier, July 4, 1878.
A. H. Green keeps his two columns filled with live descriptions of land for sale and needs more room. This week he drops out ten farms, which he has sold, and crowds in ten new descriptions.

                                       JONESBORO, INDIANA, July 17, 1878.
EDITOR COURIER: On the 15th inst., I received your paper published on the 11th. After perusing it, I find it to be rather a spicy sheet and full of news. It has been a novel among my neighbors; all wishing to see the Kansas paper, several of which have made their selection of lands from Mr. Green’s long list of farms advertised for sale in your paper.

Two of my friends seem to pick upon a certain piece located near Winfield. After a spirited contest, one of them gave way by saying he hoped we all could get suited.
I left Grant County, Indiana, on the 2nd of April for the Southwest, partially to recuperate my health, and to look out a location for myself and a few of my neighbors. I spent one week on my way out in the vicinity of Sedalia, Warrensburg, and Pleasant Hill, Missouri; thence through Southern Kansas, passing through Ottawa, Franklin County, where I spent five days, and, by the by, found rather a desirable country. Passing up through Douglas County, after spending a day with my brother, Thomas, I took the train for Kinsley, where I found everything else but a desirable place amongst those sandy plains.
Returning to Wichita, I found a country that looked to be quite desirable; but timber being out of the question, I worked my way out on the Big Walnut to a small town called Douglass, where I stopped two days. The bottoms along the Walnut, as well as many of the small creeks (all of which are skirted with timber) passing through the south end of Butler and nearly all of Cowley County, I liked very much.
After spending a few days at your city, I left for Independence, with rather a good impression of your county. Passing up through a beautiful rolling prairie, stopping a short time at Tisdale, I saw many magnificent fields of wheat overspreading those widely extended prairies. By the by, I would be glad to learn through your columns what your wheat averages per acre.
Passing through the Flint hills, with herds of cattle dotted thickly on either side, I landed at Independence, where I laid over Sunday. Monday, 2 o’clock p.m., found me at Parsons, where I took the southern bound train for Texas. I soon found myself swiftly gliding through the Indian Nation, which is a wide world of prairie, with heavy hills of timber on either side.
Arriving at Denison, Texas, I laid over one day, which proved to be a very hot one. I passed down through Sherman, Dallas, and around to Fort Worth on the 30th day of April. After spending a few days in Tarrant County, which is a good one, I procured a conveyance and in company with three men from Pennsylvania made a thirteen days’ trip through Wise, Jacks, Clay, Wichita, Archer, Young, Stevens, and Palo Pinto Counties. I found much of the land in those counties quite sandy, and rough, stony hills—and in no way desirable for farming purposes—while there were many beautiful bottom farms rating equally as high as in Kansas or Missouri, but not half so much improved. On my return to Fort Worth, I spent a few days looking through the country and examining the quality of the cattle and prices. Stopping over at Dallas and Sherman, I found a good farming country.
On the 9th of May I took the train for Sedalia, Missouri. Not being fully satisfied with my look on the way out, I spent six days in the vicinity of Sedalia, Warrensburg, and Pleasant Hill, Missouri, after which I returned to Franklin County, Kansas, where I spent four days in search of land, finding many good farms at low prices.
Feeling satisfied with my trip and thinking that I had looked at the country sufficiently, I boarded the train for Jonesboro, Indiana, where I arrived on June 13th.
After a trip of two months and eleven days, I have decided to locate in Cowley County, Kansas, or nearby, where I will be the 1st day of September if no preventing Providence. There will be quite a number of families that will follow in October.

On my trip, both through Kansas and Texas, I found the St. Louis Globe-Democrat the leading paper, in which I notice an item concerning the flood at Winfield in June, from which I get the impression that a portion of the city was flooded and some of the inhabitants had to be hauled out on dry land. How was it?
Those Arkansas City boys should have all the encouragement that energetic men are entitled to in their enterprise.
I notice some railroad items in your paper. If I was a resident of your county, if I voted a tax, it would be for as direct a route to St. Louis as practicable.
In very good faith of being a reader of your sheet, please find P. O. order for $1.00 enclosed. NOAH HARRIS.

A. H. GREEN, Attorney at Law, Winfield, Kansas.
DEAR SIR: I arrived at home last night and with others received your letter of 25th, to which I find Mr. Hueston, our Superintendent, had already replied. With several friends, men of means and who are interested in our railroad and its future extension, I expect to start south next Tuesday or Wednesday. We shall go first to Eureka and I shall try to induce my friends to go on to Winfield and perhaps to Arkansas Valley. We desire to extend our road at once. Your town has always been a point with us, and if your people desire our road and will promptly give us the aid we need, I expect to be able to make you a definite proposition. Meet us if you can at Eureka, say next Wednesday, and I would like to meet your people at Winfield say Thursday or Friday next. When we can have a plain, practical talk on the matter of our road. I go to Kansas City today and in haste remain, Very Respectfully,
                                                      WM. H. SCHOFIELD,

                                                        Railroad Prospects.
                                               [From the Winfield Telegram.]
The railroad prospects for Cowley County are brighter somewhat. The A., T. & S. F. folks stand ready to submit a proposition to build into the county, while the Kansas City, Burlington & Santa Fe—better known as the Schofield road—are also ready to do something for us. We read a letter a few days since from one of the managers of the road, written to Mr. Kinne, in which he is informed that the officers will be down here soon to submit a proposition. They have already let the contract to build their road to Eureka in Greenwood County—the work to be completed as soon as possible—and are anxious to push on down in this direction.
With these prospects ahead, Cowley can afford to be jubi­lant, as they are brighter than we have had since the organiza­tion of the county. The Santa Fe company, of course, mean business. If they offer to build a road within a given time, they will do it. And Schofield’s success so far, in building thirty or forty miles of his road when no other road was being built in the State, with the addition of the capital which is now backing him, makes his word as good as gold. With either of the roads, the county will be served to the best advantage, and we hope our readers will stand ready to assist either that comes to us with a definite proposition—no difference which it is. We will keep the Telegram readers posted upon any new developments.
Since the above was written we have been placed in posses­sion of the following letter from the K. C., Burlington & S. F. road. Mr. R. F. Burden, of Lazette, and C. A. Bliss, of this city, were sent to Eureka by our citizens to meet the gentlemen, and they are expected here tomorrow or next day. [Note: Letter given above in Courier article re A. H. Green. MAW]

                                                              SALT CITY.
                                                  Salt City Mineral Springs.
                                              [From Green’s Real Estate News.]
About fifteen miles southwest of Winfield, in Cowley County, and one half mile north of the little village of Salt City in Sumner County, are situated the famous salt and mineral springs now owned by Messrs. Hackney & McDonald, attorneys of Winfield.
These springs are among the wonders of the world. The salt marsh comprises about twenty acres and the supply water is simply beyond computation and so strong that by solar evaporation four pounds of salt is obtained from each gallon of water placed in the vats.

On the same quarter section with the salt marsh are located the mineral springs and it is said that no other water known to medical and chemical science possesses such wonderful curative properties, that by mere local application fever sores, erysipe­las, sore eyes, and all manner of cutaneous eruptions and diseases are completely cured in from one to ten days, while scrofula, syphilis, rheumatism, dyspepsia, jaundice, etc., yield to a course of bathing combined with free and regular drinking of the water in from one to six weeks.
These springs should be improved and advertised, when they would speedily become one of the greatest resorts in the United States, but their present owners pay but little attention to the matter. Being engrossed in their profession, their splendid property lies unimproved and neglected, and invalids visiting the springs are forced either to “camp out” or depend upon the very insufficient hotel accommodations at Salt City.

A. H. Green has again got out 5,000 copies of a new issue of his Real Estate News. He is determined to make a market for such lands as are for sale in this county, and will succeed. We commend his enterprise and give him credit for a great amount of labor and expense to inform land-seekers of the fact that Cowley County is the best county to invest money in.

                                               Trial of L. J. Webb at Wichita.
The case was called on Monday morning, September 9th, on the opening of the court. Defendant made application for a continuance because of the absence of Dr. Mendenhall, a material witness for the defense. The court held the showing sufficient, unless the State would admit the affidavit of defendant as the testimony of witness. The State consented and the case was set for trial next morning.
All day Tuesday was spent in getting a jury. The special venire was soon exhausted and balance was made up of tradesmen. It is considered a good jury, and both State and defendant are satisfied. Most of them are from the country.

One of the most important witnesses for the defense was Jessie Herndon, the principal witness for the State. As is known, he was Page’s barkeeper and knew all about how the business of the house was conducted. The defense had endeavored to draw out this testimony on cross-examination but the court would not permit it, and he was put on as a witness for the defense. He testified as to all the occurrences of the night previous to the killing and made many important additions to his testimony. He said that Page deliberately robbed Webb that night by means of cold decks and drugged whiskey; that Webb drank often that night, and Page had instructed witness to give Webb liquor from a particular bottle he called “all sorts,” which witness did; that twice during the night Page went into the bar-room and put some liquid from a small vial which he took from his pocket into a tumbler of whiskey and instructed witness to give it to Webb the next time he called for drink, which witness did; that this bottle of “all sorts” was a villainous compound of whiskey and drugs, which Page kept for the express purpose of giving to men with whom he was gaming; that shortly before the conclusion of the game, and after Webb had drunk the whiskey prepared by Page, Page went into the bar-room and stacked a deck of cards, and instructed witness the next time drinks were called for to bring this pack under the water or server, and while Webb was engaged in drinking to leave them under the server on the table, which witness did, and then Page dealt from this cold deck, giving Webb a full hand and himself a better hand, on which he won all Webb’s money, and this concluded the game. Witness testified to some expressions of anger made by Webb to Page upon the conclusion of the game, saying he was robbed, but to no expressions of malice or threats of revenge. All the parties to the game remained an hour or more after its conclusion, Webb drinking frequently; then all left except Webb, who remained alone with witness. Webb never left the saloon from that time to the time of the shooting. Witness testified as to Webb’s condition and appearance during the day; said he looked very wild and had a jerking movement about his head, neck, and shoulders, was convulsive, and breathed hard. Witness testified that after the preliminary examination he went with By Terrill and Frank Manny to the saloon to make an examination for drugs. They washed out several empty bottles and one bottle that contained something that Page had used to put in liquor; what it was he did not know. When they emptied it out and washed the bottle, he told Terrill and Manny that it was not right. He testified that certain vials and small bottles shown him looked like those which Page had used to fix up liquors with.
This witness suffered considerably in the hands of W. E. Stanley, attorney for State, on cross-examination. His attention was called to statements he had made before Justice Boyer at the preliminary examination in direct contradiction to his present statements. These contra-dictions witness explained by saying he had been advised by certain friends of Page that if he told anything he knew about these transactions in the saloon they would let Webb go and send witness up; that from those threats and the general excitement he was afraid to tell all he knew about that saloon.
Further testimony for the defense from Burt Covert, G. L. Walker, James Fahey, P. Hill, A. H. Green, R. F. Baldwin, Ed. Bedilion, and Dr. W. R. Davis corroborated Herndon in relation to the wild and insane appearance, the convulsive twitching movements of the throat, head, and shoulders of the defendant immediately before and subsequent to the shooting; also showed the finding of some small bottles and vials in the counter used by Page in his saloon; that these vials were taken from the counter sometime after the shooting and preserved with their contents and are the same that are now exhibited in court; and the testimony of Drs. Davis, Rothrock, and Furley showed that these vials contained opium, nux vomica, and India hemp, and that these compounded and administered would produce the symptoms described in the defendant and would produce insanity.
The jury than examined the indentation which is apparent on defendant’s head. From inspection it appeared that a considerable portion of the skull had been formerly removed, and that the left side of the skull is pressed in upon the brain.
The medical gentlemen testified that such is a frequent cause of insanity, and that any person thus afflicted was extremely liable to mental derangement or insanity in any unusual excitement, or the excessive use of intoxicating liquors, or of such drugs as had been found in the vials.
Excerpts from lengthy article...
Winfield Courier, October 31, 1878.
                                               WINFIELD, October 28, 1878.

EDITOR COURIER: Allison, in his paper of last week, devotes some space to me as the Republican candidate for county attorney, and closes by asking me five questions. I have furnished him brief answers to these questions for his paper this week, but lest he may adhere to the tactics he has started out on, and not publish my answers, I ask the privilege of a hearing through your columns.
Answer to fifth question [or charge]...
5th. John B. Fairbank, A. H. Green, and myself at one time were associated together in the civil practice of the law only. During that time I prosecuted a man by the name of James Stewart on the charge of being implicated in the shooting of a deputy U. S. Marshal on Grouse Creek. Stewart was defended in court by W. P. Hackney and Messrs. Putman & Case, of Topeka, and Mr. Green was in some way connected with the defense, but did not take any active part in the trial of the case. Whether Mr. Green offered Stewart any such inducement to secure his employment as Mr. Allison insinuates, I have no personal knowledge, nor do I care. Mr. Green says he did not, which settles the question in my mind that Mr. Allison lies on that score. This much I do know, that, although Stewart was defended by as good lawyers as the State afforded, the only favor I showed him was to procure his conviction and have him sentenced to the state penitentiary.
These comprise the batch of lies that Mr. Allison, so far as I am advised, has thus far charged against me in this campaign. If he didn’t lie in the last week’s issue of his paper, he intends to publish a new string of falsehoods in the last issue of his paper before the day of election.
In conclusion I have to say that any charges he may make affecting my honesty or integrity as county attorney of this county will be absolutely false; that whatever my ability may have been when acting as county attorney, I honestly and conscientiously endeavored to discharge the duties that the office devolved upon me. E. S. TORRANCE.

Mr. A. H. Green, the live and energetic real estate agent, land broker, and attorney of Winfield is one of the most successful business gentlemen I ever met. A person is really at home in his office, which is thronged from morning till night with land buyers, and the amount of business he transacts daily is astonishing. His office is fitted up in elegant style, carpeted, plenty of chairs, writing desks, a large law library, and the walls hang full of maps and plates, descriptive of the lands he is selling. Mr. Green is a thorough businessman, and if there is such a word as success he will succeed. He is agent for a good share of the vacant property in Winfield, and he informs me that residence and business lots are rapidly advancing in prices in anticipation of the railroad, the former selling all the way from $40 to $125, and the latter from $100 to $1,500. Corner lots can be had for less than $2,000. Rents are rising, and there is a big demand for houses.
Winfield Courier, January 16, 1879.
A. H. Green still continues to send off in the mails loads of advertisements and newspapers. We think Cowley County is getting to be very well known in the East, and when the weather moderates Green will be crowded with land buyers thicker than ever.
Winfield Courier, February 6, 1879.
We had occasion to call at the land office of A. H. Green last night, and found that gentleman busily engaged talking to some half dozen Illinois men who are here to buy land. They seemed well pleased with Cowley County.

MONEY TO LOAN. I am prepared to loan money on improved farm property, in Cowley and Sumner Counties, in sums of not less than Three Hundred Dollars, on as good or better terms than ever offered heretofore.

A. H. Green, of Winfield, has been commissioned Brigadier General of the State Militia. Green knows how to run a first-class real estate agency, and we have no doubt he will do equally well in bleeding for his country.
Winfield Courier, May 15, 1879.
Gov. St. John has commissioned A. H. Green of this city as Brigadier General of the Kansas State militia. If the Governor is as fortunate in all his appointments, he may well be congratu­lated. As a civilian, Mr. Green is one of our most active, enterprising businessmen, and whatever faults he may have had, he is always true to his friends and never counts the cost when he can do them a service.
As a military officer he has a clear and honorable record. Of unquestioned courage, quick perceptions, sound judgment, and ready execution, he is will qualified for his position. Nor is he lacking in military experience. He was a soldier in the Union army all through the war for the preserva­tion of the nation and a participant in some of the hardest fought battles of the war. He is a native of Muscatine County, Iowa; lived in Indiana, where, at the age of 18, he enlisted and was commissioned captain of Company D, 48th Indiana volunteers, before he arrived at the age of 20. Under his command this company made a good record, and was known as the best drilled company in the brigade.
He was an active participant in the campaign down the Missis­sippi, which culminated in the fall of Vicksburg, and was with Sherman in his “famous march to the sea,” serving a part of the time as aid-de-camp on the staff of Gen. W. T. Clark. He received high testimonials for his ability and conduct as an officer from his regimental officers up to Maj. Gen. Sherman himself. He was engaged in the battles of Iuka, Corinth, Ray­mond, Jackson, Champion Hills, Black River, siege of Vicksburg, Mission Ridge, Lookout Mountain, and many others through to the sea and on through the Carolinas.

Mr. A. H. Green on Saturday drew up several powers of attorney for a lot of Pottawatomie Indians to Col.

The land in question comprise some of the best portions of these counties, including the north part of the city of Topeka. These are by far the most intelli­gent looking Indians we have seen, and were accompanied by their interpreter, Medore B. Beauheim.

A. H. Green has secured the services of Col. E. C. Manning in the real estate business.

Winfield Courier, July 10, 1879.
Last Friday was undoubtedly the biggest day Winfield ever had. Considerable preparation had been made by our citizens; but as so many celebrations were to be held in the county, no one expected such a crowd as gathered at the metropolis to observe “the day we celebrate.” Over 8,000 people were present.
The streets and avenues were lined with wagons, crowding the streets and lining the roads for miles.

About half past ten a.m., Gen. Green, with a corps of assistants, began the work of organizing the procession and getting the different township delegations together. The proces­sion was delayed somewhat by the Vernon delegation, which came in about eleven o’clock headed by the Winfield Cornet Band, and took their places at the head of the column. When all was ready, the band struck up “Hail Columbia” and the procession, reaching from the courthouse to Millington street, south on Millington street to 13th avenue, thence west to Main street, and north to the grounds, over two miles, started. It was supposed that over half of the teams had not formed in the procession, and the number of wagons was estimated at five hundred.
The speech of the occasion, which was delivered by Judge McDonald, was pronounced by all to be one of his most brilliant efforts, and was as creditable to himself as it was pleasing to the audience.
      Everybody seemed to be a committee of one to provide dinner for a score of persons, and we wished a dozen times that we had the capacity for victuals of the “two-headed giant” of picture book fame.
After dinner, the presentation of the flag to the largest delegation, was awarded to Vernon township. Prof. R. C. Story presented the flag in one of the neatest speeches it has ever been our fortune to hear. Judge Ross, Squire Barrack of Rock, and Rev. Joel Mason of Pleasant Valley made some happy and appropriate remarks.
In the “glass ball shoot,” which took place at 4 o’clock, Jas. Vance carried off the first premium, breaking 14 balls out of a possible 15. The races, owing to the bad condition of the track, were postponed.
The fire-works were a success, although for awhile it looked as if the committee on “fizzle” would make a good job of it. Through the exertions of E. P. Kinne, T. K. Johnston, J. H. Finch, and others of our citizens, the little “misunderstanding” was righted and everything “went off” nicely.
Winfield Courier, July 10, 1879.
A case of poisoning, which fortunately did not result in serious injury, occurred last Saturday, in which the families of Gen. Green and Mr. Millhouse were the sufferers.
The facts as near as we can learn are as follows. Mr. Millhouse had purchased a beef-tongue, which Mrs. Millhouse prepared for the Fourth, and which they ate for dinner on that day without anything appearing to be the matter. Like all of our thrifty housewives, Mrs. Millhouse had prepared about enough for an army; and of course, they had some left over. This they, together with Mr. Green and family, ate for dinner on July 5th. A few hours after partaking of the tongue, they were all taken with a fit of vomiting, accompanied by severe cramping pains. Dr. Emerson was called in and did his utmost to relieve the sufferers.
It is impossible to say how the poisoning occurred, as those who ate of the tongue the day before were not affected in the least. It is a very mysterious case, and it may be that the cattle in the vicinity are diseased. If so, the matter should be looked into before other and more serious cases occur. At last reports the parties were all doing well.

A. H. Green has just issued 5,000 copies of his Real Estate News for distribution on the trains among the immigrants coming to Kansas. Mr. Green has done as much as any one man toward securing for Cowley her share of the immigration pouring into the state.

Winfield Courier, August 14, 1879.
A. H. Green is still rolling out his “Real Estate News” to all parts of the country. Every mail carries a large bundle of papers severally addressed and postage paid. The immediate completion of the railroad to this place will bring scores of land buyers and home seekers to this county in answer to these papers and Green will be in demand beyond all former experience. Persons having real estate to sell should have it put in his hands at once to be ready for the rush.

The editors of the New Enterprise enjoyed a pleasant visit to the beautiful and prosperous city of Winfield, last Monday. Mr. Eagin formerly lived there, but we had never before seen Winfield, and were surprised to find such a live, enterprising, and prosperous city.

Last Friday the members of the new military organization met at the office of Gen. Green and were sworn in under the laws of the state. The company then organized by electing J. H. Finch First Lieutenant. The arms have been sent for and the boys have been drilling diligently. The company is composed of the very best class of young men in the city, and we predict that before long the “Winfield Rifles” will have, if not a “national reputa­tion,” at least one of being the crack company of the state. The company only lacks a few members of being full, and at least a dozen have signified their intention of presenting their names for admission at the next meeting.

A reporter was yesterday shone a specimen of the finest quality of magnesian limestone, which was brought from a quarry in Cowley County, about two miles east of Winfield. Mr. Charles Schmidt, of this city, has recently purchased the quarry, and will endeavor to introduce the stone in the various cities in the State. The stone, when first taken out of the ground, is soft, but on exposure to the air it becomes quite hard,  and grows more so the longer it is exposed. The specimen seen was a piece of sculpture which was made several years ago by an Indian, and presented lately to Mr. Schmidt by A. H. Green, Esq., of Winfield. It will be on exhibition in E. T. Carr’s office for some time. Mr. Schmidt is an experienced stone cutter, and says he never saw a finer quality of magnesian limestone in his life. Times.

Monday was a gala day for Winfield, and the people of the surrounding country understood the fact, and many of them turned out to see the fun. Some time ago the Guards decided to produce the military drama of the “Union Spy” at this place, and learning that members of the Governor’s staff would be present, it was decided to give a grand parade in their honor. At 2 o’clock the companies were formed on the courthouse square, and after receiv­ing the general and staff, they moved out and paraded through the principal streets.
Gen. Green and staff took a position in front of the Opera House and the companies counter-marched in review. The Rifles looked their best and St. John’s Battery shown resplendent in new uniforms with red top-knots. The general and staff were splen­didly mounted and uniformed and looked every inch soldiers. This was by far the most imposing affair Winfield has yet seen.

The Arkansas Valley Editorial Association held its regular quarterly meeting at Winfield Saturday. The occasion drew together many besides the editors. Some ten or fifteen went down from Topeka, and others joined the procession at different points. From Newton not less than twenty, fully one-half of whom were ladies, went down on a special train from that place Satur­day morning. The special train was run by the A., T. & S. F. railroad to accommodate the editors from the Upper Arkansas Valley, who, by this act of the railroad, saved one day in time. That railroad company, by the way, is all the time doing some­thing to accommodate the public, and we sometimes think that because of their generosity on so many occasions whenever asked, that more is expected of it than from any other railroad company in the state.
We would be glad to give a more extended notice of Winfield and her big-hearted generous citizens, but time forbids. We cannot, however, close without returning thanks to W. M. Allison, of the Telegram, and his family, and General Green, for particu­lar favors shown us.

Last Monday A. H. Green made a fierce assault on the Rev. A. H. Tucker, beating him severely about the head and face, knocking him down on the sidewalk, and attempting to kick him in the face; but was prevented in the last by being heaved into the street by a third party, which ended the attack.
Mr. Tucker resisted no farther than to raise his bent arm to ward off the blows which were put in thick and fast, and did not speak a word.
The provocation was that in a short address at the Union temperance meeting in the Opera House the evening before, Mr. Tucker said in relation to a call for a grand jury that remon­strances had been circulated, one of them by a man named Green; that some two or three men who signed these remonstrances had expressed a desire to get their names off, stating that they signed under the false representation that the grand jury would cost the county from $1,500 to $1,800. Mr. Tucker added that he believed the men making such representation knew it was a lie when they made it.
We think Mr. Green was not present at the meeting; but had since been told exaggerated stories of what had been said, doubtless that the speaker accused him directly of lying or being a liar, and had been stimulated and inflamed into a burning passion.
We do not think that Mr. Tucker’s remarks were judicious, particularly the mention of Mr. Green by name, but that was no excuse for this assault on a non-resistant preacher, nor any excuse for others to misrepresent him and urge an assault. As we understand this case will be settled in the courts, we will now say no more.
Winfield Courier, October 27, 1881.
Sheriff Shenneman attached all of A. H. Green’s property Monday evening in a damage suit brought by Rev. A. H. Tucker. The General is in a fair way for finding out how much it is worth to skin the nose of a minister.
Arkansas City Traveler, November 2, 1881.
On Sunday evening at the temperance meeting, Rev. Tucker made some personal allusions of an unpleasant nature in regard to Gen. A. H. Green, to which the latter took exceptions. Today they met on the sidewalk in front of the General’s office, and after a few words, Mr. Tucker was knocked down. The affair grew out of the temperance question. A great deal of bad blood has been stirred up and some spilt, and the end is not yet.
The plot thickens. Rev. H. A. Tucker has sued A. H. Green for $5,000 damages, supposed to have been sustained in yesterday’s racket. Telegram, Oct. 25th, 1881.

General Green had the pleasure of seeing $150 in Greenbacks reduced to ashes the other morning. Mrs. Green received a telegram calling her to attend her mother, who was very ill in Texas. Mr. Green had a roll of money in his pocket to give her for traveling expenses, and early in the morning while starting a fire, took out the roll, when in some way it was drawn into the stove, and in a minute he was reduced to a specie basis. The General borrowed money of every man he could find on the street at that early hour, stood the railroad off for a ticket, and Mrs. Green was enabled to get off on that train. Mr. Green now understands that old proverb, “riches take wings and fly” into the fire and up the flue.

The Courant “wants to know” which side we take in the controversy between the preacher and the COURIER. We are for the preacher, of course. Between the Island Park, Gen.

A. H. Green has sold fifteen farms since the first of January and these have been mainly for cash at good prices. The number of land buyers is increasing and he has correspondence which indicates that there will be a still larger number of men here within a few weeks desiring to purchase farms in this county. These parties are all of the better class of citizens, men who are not only intelligent but have plenty of money. The outlook is that we are going to have a boom in Cowley County. Those who have farms for sale should put them into the hands of A. H. Green at once. His office is the headquarters for land buyers.

Winfield Courier, March 30, 1882.
A. H. Green, not only the leading land broker of Cowley County but of the entire southwest, is having a splendid business and it appears to be increasing with him all the time. We are glad to note this fact as Mr. Green has, during the last five years, at his own expense, done more toward bringing immigrants to this county than all the balance of our citizens put together. His advertisements have been of vast benefit to Winfield and Cowley County, and our citizens should, as they do in our opinion, appreciate it by patronizing him. He is prompt, energetic, and thoroughly reliable, and we expect that during the last three years he has sold from five to ten times as much land as all the balance of the land agents in the county.

Cowley County Courant, April 6, 1882. 
A. H. Green, of this city, one of the most successful and enterprising land brokers in Kansas, has opened a branch office at Arkansas City, which will be under the personal supervision of Nat.

We presume there is no question but that Green has sold more land in Cowley County during the past six years than any other two agents in Southern Kansas, and there is no doubt but that his Arkansas City office will soon build up a good business. One thing those people down there can safely bank on; he is straight and reliable in every transaction.

CARD NO. 2. Mr. Editor: It will be remembered that immedi­ately after the difficulty between myself and Tucker, there were individuals in this town misrepresenting me and trying to create the impression that the said trouble was the forerunner or the initial step of an organized fight against the ministers of the gospel, or in other words, the commencement of a war between ruffianism and vice, against Christianity and morality. Upon hearing this I published a card denying the same in toto. Now that the matter is all over and the smoke has cleared away, and, as many are daily enquiring of me as to the particulars, I desire to recapitulate this huge affair briefly.
On the morning of the 24th of October last, I was told by many of our reputable citizens that on the night previous, Tucker, a professed christian minister, in a speech in the opera house before an audience of some five or six hundred persons, had singled me out, named me, and charged me with having misrep­resented and lied to obtain signatures, to a certain paper circulated a week previous by Mr. Lynn and myself. That day I met the Reverend gentleman and quietly told him what I had heard, whereupon he in a very haughty, sarcastic, and insulting manner, said “he guessed I had heard what he said about me.” At this time I took occasion to slap the gentleman, which of course I do not claim to have been a christian act nor even right in a moral sense, but yet I believe the average mortal under like circumstances would have done the same.
Now, I have the word of a resident minister that Tucker told him about the time the suit for damages was instituted against myself that a certain lawyer had volunteered his services to prosecute the case against me. This minister asked Tucker who that lawyer was, and Tucker replied it was Capt. McDermott. I have the word of a lawyer in this town that about the time said suit was started that the said volunteer attorney boasted on the street that he would make me sick before he got through with me.
These acts of an eminently moral gentleman will evidently be considered by the community at large as emanating from a true christian spirit, especially when they learn that of $250 damages allowed by the jury and already paid by me, Mr. Tucker gets nothing, but that the same is divided up among the lawyers who tried the case, McDermott & Johnson, as I am informed, getting $150, and Hackney & McDonald getting $100 of the spoils, leaving poor Ben. Henderson, who made the only legal on the side of the prosecution, out in the cold, without a penny for his services.
And I also was reliably informed that Mr. Tucker is honor­able enough to object to this course and demands that Henderson must have at least a small portion, but our Winfield christian law­yers, I understand, don’t like to give any money up. It’s too soft a thing especially when ordinary law practice is light. I have paid the money and the lawyers and their client are now quarreling over it. Of course, it is hard to pay out hundreds of dollars to such a purpose, but I do not regret it. I would feel that I had lost my manhood and disgraced my parentage if I would take such a wanton insult slung at me without cause or provoca­tion without resenting it. If I had been permitted, I could have proven that I was not guilty of the charges made against me by Mr. Tucker, and that they were entirely without foundation. I love a christian gentleman, but a hypocrite I hate.
I believe the community will bear me out in the assertion that my actions have proven that I have no fight against churches or christians, but to the contrary have always endorsed all reli­gious organizations and helped them financially. My father and mother have been members of the M. E. church ever since I can remember. I believe they are christians, but the religion they taught me was not the kind practiced by some in this town. The question is, has this affair had a tendency to strengthen the cause of christianity? Did the language used by Mr. Tucker in the hall, with reference to myself, indicate a christian spirit, or did it sound like the ranting of a third-rate ward politician?

Did the money I paid into court belong to Mr. Tucker or myself, or was it confidence money? If the suit was brought through good and honest motives, for the good of the community, and for the benefit of society and Mr. Tucker combined, why was it the lawyers forgot Mr. Tucker in dividing the spoils? I may be wrong, and hope I am, but it appears to me that the whole affair would look to an unbiased mind like a robbery under the cloak of a prosecution in the interest of morality and in vindi­cation of the law. Again, is it not a strange coincidence that after Judge Campbell and Mr. Tipton (two gentlemen who never made any pretension toward being possessed of an extraordinary degree of moral virtue) had addressed the jury in my behalf, without making use of a single expression reflecting upon the character of Mr. Tucker. That in the closing argument the gentleman who professed to have the love of God in his heart should so far forget himself as to resort to blackguardism and billingsgate as I am informed he did. Among other things referring to myself and insinuating that I was a coward. Now I desire to address myself to this christian statesman and say to him kindly, but firmly, that he dare not undertake to substantiate that charge of coward­ice on any ground, at any time, or in any manner he may choose. A. H. GREEN.

Mr. J. H. Finch met with a severe accident last Saturday evening. As he, with Gen. Green, was driving on the approach to the west bridge, the team jumped to one side, upset the buggy, and threw Mr. Finch to the ground, breaking both the bones in his left leg, a little above the ankle. Dr. Emerson reduced the fracture, and Uncle Jim is now getting along very well.
Cowley County Courant, June 8, 1882.
A few evenings ago a number of old soldiers met at Judge Soward’s office for the purpose of organizing a post of the Grand Army of the Republic. After they were about all in the room, someone proposed that they all arise and repeat the Lord’s Prayer in concert. Each looked at the other to begin the prayer. Finally Judge Soward, seeing that nobody else would commence, started in as follows: “The Star Spangled banner in triumph ...” when Mayor Troup hunched him and told him he was wrong. The Judge was a little mad, and told him to go ahead himself, if he thought he knew it all, and the Mayor started in “Now I lay me down to sleep.” Senator Hackney, who was present, stopped Troup, and told him that was not it, when Troup told Hackney to speak. The Senator cleared his throat and commenced, “Rock of Ages cleft for me,” when Dr. Wells pulled his coat and made him stop. Hackney quit, and told the doctor to work it up, and Wells began, “There’s a land that is fairer than this,” but they all told him to cheese it, and he quit, blushing like a school girl. Just at this point Charley Steuven became disgusted, said he was ashamed of the whole gang, and they told him to try to start it. Charles rolled his eyes up and started, “The Lord into the garden came.” At this juncture General Green came in and asked what they were drilling on. He was informed of the condition of things, and relieved the suspense by starting, “Our Father who art in Heav­en.” They all joined in then, and after the prayer had been repeated, someone said that Green’s associations with the minis­try gave him a big advantage over the rest of them.

Excerpts to give an idea of Green’s publication...
Winfield Courier, July 13, 1882.
                                              (From Green’s Real Estate News.)
                                  TOGETHER WITH THE CITY OF WINFIELD,
                                                       ITS COUNTY SEAT.
Cowley County is on the south line of the state, one hundred and thirty miles west of the east line. It is bounded on the east by Elk and Chautauqua, on the north by Butler, on the west by Sumner, and on the south by the Indian Territory. It is about 244 miles from Kansas City, and 196 from Topeka, the capitol of the State.
                                              ROUTE FROM KANSAS CITY.
Take the Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe railroad via Topeka and Newton, or the Kansas City, Lawrence & Southern railroad, the latter being about one hour’s ride the shortest route.
The county is very nearly square, being 33 miles in width by 34-1/4 miles in length.
                                                       LAY OF THE LAND.
The western one-third of the county or that portion which is situated between the Walnut and Arkansas rivers, is composed principally of bottom and valley lands; generally these lands are very rich and productive; the soil will vary in depth from 2 to 6 feet, and has just enough of sand mixed with it to cause it to cultivate easily, and continually remain loose and mellow. These lands are free from stone. In this section are to be found many of our finest farms. Running streams of water are not so plentiful here, however, as they are east of the Walnut River, where springs, branches, and small creeks are very numerous, and as a rule along the banks or bluffs of these streams are to be found more or less stone of different qualities, from the roughest, fit only for the building of fences to the finest magnesian limestone suitable for the finest buildings. Here again we have some of the best valley land, and as fine farms as the stranger could wish to look at.
The soil in this section is either deep black loam, almost free from sand, or a sandy loam with more or less of the latter; but very seldom, however, is the latter in sufficient quantities to prove detrimental. Under this is found a subsoil consisting of loam, clay, and gravel, all of which is of so porous a nature that it readily absorbs dampness and the water from heavy rains is so rapidly taken up by mother earth that within a few hours after these rains have ceased, farmers are seen plowing their corn and the roads almost free from mud. The porosity of our soil is the acknowledged cause of this locality being considered safe from the effects of any ordinary drouth, as the surface is kept more or less moist during a dry time by evaporation from beneath. The soil is loose, in fact sometimes too much so, if plowed in the spring; hence the reason that it is not an unfrequent occurrence to see farmers clear their ground, mark it off, and plant their corn without first plowing the same. The usual rule, however, is to plow it first, and we think it much the best, although we have seen heavy crops of corn raised the other way.

This county is abundantly supplied with water, and that too of a splendid quality. The Arkansas River flows through the south half of the county. On the west at this point the bed of the river is from one hundred to three hundred yards in width, with sandy bottom, and bordered on either side with narrow skirts of cottonwood and elm. It is a sluggish and dirty looking stream, with its waters almost constantly muddy; in fact, it may be very appropriately called the “little muddy.” The Walnut River crosses the county from north to south, a little west of the centre of the county, and is a beautiful stream of clear swift running water, with gravel or rock bottom. This river affords our principal natural water power privileges.

Messrs. Green & Snyder are now issuing the eighth edition of their Real Estate News. It is a twenty-four column paper and brim full of matter of interest to land buyers and home seekers. The matter contained in its columns is reliable and not overdrawn as many such publications are. This is one of the livest and most energetic real estate firms in the West, and does business in a manner that is satisfactory both to buyer and seller.
Winfield Courier, July 20, 1882.

The COURIER Job Office will get out a five thousand edition of Green’s Real Estate News in a few days, for distribution by the K. C., L. & S. Railroad company in the East.
Winfield Courier, January 4, 1883.
Gen. A. H. Green is now issuing the ninth edition of his paper, known as “Green’s Real Estate News.” These papers reflect credit upon the General as a businessman, besides giving land news of both local and general importance. His enterprise, untiring energy, close attention to business, and honorable and upright manner of dealing, make him well worth of having, as he does, the largest real estate business in the West. He is now issuing an 11,000 edition, 6,000 of which is for his home office in this city, and 5,000 for his branch office at Arkansas City, this county, which is under the management and control of Nat. Snyder, his partner in that office, who is an affable, energetic, and thoroughly reliable businessman. The General has been issuing these papers at intervals of from five, seven, or eight months, for the past seven years, and as an evidence of the high regard entertained for his paper as an advertising medium, the reader is referred not only to the advertisements of nearly all of our intelligent, enterprising, and most successful businessmen, but to the large advertisement, on the 4th page, of our best line of railroad, the K. C. S. and S. K. Gen. Green’s enemies are often heard to admit that he is an honorable businessman, and that what he says can be depended upon.

                                               Winfield’s Buildings and Business.
Winfield has thirty-five two-story and seventeen one-story brick or stone business buildings, while there are something over 70 one and two story frame business houses. This includes shops, livery stables, and some few offices; the most of the latter, however, are found in second stories of buildings. We have a $16,000 brick courthouse, with four fire-proof vaults, and a two-story brick jail, which cost $3,000.
The city contains quite a number of fine residences, three or four of which cost not less than eight or ten thousand dollars each. These finest buildings have all the modern improvements, are heated with hot air, lighted with gas, and most of the rooms are supplied with hot and cold water.

                                                  Arkansas City. Improvement.

Once more we come to the front to make a tally in the city’s onward march. L. McLaughlin’s fine stone store room and hall is near completed, and now the old reliable, Al Newman, comes to the front and signs the contract for another large two story building just above McLaughlin’s, to be completed as fast as stone and mortar can be laid. But better yet, the Highland Hall Company have the money deposited for a double store room, and a hall 50 x 100, 18-foot story. Lots to be located and contract let as soon as the company can do the business. It is with pleasure we chronicle this as the commencement of the building season. Now let the city come to the front.

                               ARKANSAS CITY AND HER SURROUNDINGS.
Arkansas City is the second city in size in Cowley County, and is the center of trade for the southwest portion of the county. The section of country tributary to her cannot be excelled in the State of Kansas, taking in, as it does, the valleys of the Arkansas, Walnut, and Grouse, with a portion of the valley between the Walnut and Arkansas, all first-class land. The surrounding country is now thickly settled with enterprising farmers, who are making permanent improvements. The three streams afford sufficient timber for all present use, and the country abounds in stone of every variety, from water-lime to limestone. Stone that is hard as flint and stone that can be cut with a common saw, but hardens sufficiently with exposure to make first-class building rock. This section has fully tested all the cereals with uncommon success. Small fruits and grapes ripen to perfection, and so far have been remarkably free from disease. Peaches, budded and seedlings, have known but few failures since the first beginning. The apple orchards have come into bearing to a sufficient extent to demonstrate that all the leading varieties that have been tested in the older settled portions of the State will succeed here. Such is the country surrounding the city, and from such a country, it is easy to predict that it will be a good feeder for steady and enduring trade.
The City is situated upon a divide which separates the Walnut and Arkansas Rivers, and no finer a town can be found in the state of Kansas. The land generally sloping to either river, the first rays of morning come gleaming over the Walnut, and the last rays of the setting sun dance in beauty over the waters and through the leafy trees on the banks of the Arkansas.
In addition to the beauty of the townsite, the city is so located (being only four and one-half miles from the Territory line) that the ranche trade and the trade of the agencies center here. The ranche trade alone amounts to over one hundred thousand dollars a year, while the agency trade is continually increasing. Not only in location, but in material for building, does the city excel. In every direction within one mile of the city are inexhaustible quarries of building stone. Brick of the finest quality are made on the townsite, lime is burned within a short distance of the city, and sand procured within one-half mile. The progress of the city has been steady from the beginning. One log hut in 1871; forty business houses and two hundred dwellings in 1882.

Churches. In churches Arkansas City is well represented: Presbyterians and Methodists having three fine church buildings and a large membership. The Baptist, Free Methodists, and Christians have organizations, and expect to build.
Schools. In schools and school buildings she has always taken the lead, having now the finest school building in Southern Kansas, and is making preparation to erect two more, when the larger building will be a first-class graded school, giving facilities for education found in but few cities in Kansas.
Business. All kinds of business is well represented and doing well, with room for more. Two banks. Three first-class dry goods establishments, in rooms twenty-five by one hundred feet, are doing a large business; eleven groceries, part of them carrying large stocks; two clothing; four drug stores; two jewelry establishments; four hardware; three restaurants; four livery stables; one bakery; two harness shops; two agricultural and implement stores; one real estate and two law offices, make up the business of the town. In addition to this are three mills with a capacity for grinding twelve hundred bushels of wheat per day, and a foundry and machine shop for casting and machinery repairs.
Railroads. The city is at present the terminus of the A. T. & S. F., and has now three trains a day. The A. T. & S. F. will move on down the river to Ft. Smith as soon as the right of way can be secured. It will be found by looking at the map that a straight line from this place strikes the mail line of the A. T. & S. F. at Ft. Dodge, which will shorten the main line fifty miles and will put Arkansas City on the main line from the Mississippi to the Pacific. Another line is projected and partially built which will follow the southern line of the State, and must strike this place as it moves west.
Manufacturers. In regards to manufactories the city rightfully claims first rank, having the finest improved water power in the State of Kansas. The improvement made by the Arkansas City Water Power Company has already involved an outlay of over one hundred thousand dollars, and consists of a race connecting the Arkansas River with the Walnut River, the race being three miles in length and sixteen feet at the bottom and thirty-two feet at the top in width, giving a fall of twenty-one and one-third feet, with present capacity for driving machinery to the amount of seven hundred horsepower, and provision made to enlarge to double the amount at any time it may be required.
The company have a well constructed dam over the Arkansas four feet in height, which has been sufficiently tried by the flood to give confidence in its permanency. The mason work at the head and tail gates is massive and solid, and constructed in a first-class manner. The company have secured the erection by experienced men of two fine mills—one operating with capacity of six hundred bushels of wheat per day and latest improvements for making fine flour—now known to the trade. This mill, built at a cost of over twenty-five thousand dollars, has been in constant operation ever since its completion. A first-class stone mill has also been erected and is now in operation. The company are also negotiating for the erection of a cotton mill by an eastern party of experience. As an additional attraction to the city, a company has been formed, the lots purchased, and the money raised for the construction of a public hall fifty feet by one hundred feet, eighteen foot story and two store rooms and basement beneath, to be finished in the latest style.

Health. Last, but not least, comes a question of great importance to all parties seeking a new location. Situated as Arkansas City is, upon a rolling knoll with constant breezes and no stagnant water in any direction, it accounts for the fact that her population claim an immunity from diseases that is found in very few localities in the State. Further than this, as a point favorable to the health of the city, is the fact that pure living water can be found at a reasonable depth in all parts of the city. In addition to this, the city has inaugurated a system of water-works, which can be increased with its growth, by which water is raised by machinery to the highest point on the townsite; and distributed by pipes throughout the city, making a plentiful supply of water for use and a complete safeguard against fire.
Strangers desiring to settle will find a pleasant, sociable people ready to extend the hand of friendship and make them perfectly at home. Green & Snyder’s Real Estate News.

                                        WINFIELD DON’T WANT SALOONS.
On looking over carefully the list of signatures on the petition to Hackney, we find a considerable number of names of persons who live in the country, and many more whom nobody knows. We find only 101 names, less than half of those on the petition, who are known as citizens of Winfield. Less than half of these probably understood what they were signing, and are in favor of saloons. It is presumable that the originators got all the names of prominent Winfield men they could by any kind of representations; and, considering all these things, the petition is not so very formidable after all. But it is enough to give our city a bad name, and give a severe stab to the cause of prohibition. The Kansas City Journal’s Topeka correspondence says that the names of all the prominent men and business firms of Winfield are found on that petition, except one bank and one hardware store. We notice that the following Winfield firms and names are conspicuously absent from the petition.
                              One of those who did not sign the petition: A. H. Green.
Besides all the clergymen of the city and more than four hundred other businessmen and voters of the city, it does not show up big when we remember that but a very small proportion of the 650 voters in the city signed the petition.

We learn that A. H. Green, who has been dangerously sick and delirious for some time past, was, on Monday last, adjudged a lunatic and will go to the Osawatomie asylum.
Winfield Courier, August 23, 1883.

On Monday a jury in the Probate Court examined Gen. A. H. Green and pronounced him insane, and a fit person to be confined in the insane asylum. In accordance with the verdict, the court ordered that he be conveyed to the asylum. The decision cited that his condition is the result of excessive use of intoxicating liquors.

The sheriff of Cowley County was a passenger on the east bound train Monday morning, having in charge General A. H. Green, who was pronounced insane some time ago. Mrs. Green was accompanying her husband to the insane asylum at Osawatomie. We got a glimpse of this unfortunate man as he lay upon a couch in the baggage car; and he looked like anything but the live, energetic businessman whom we were intimately acquainted with only a few months ago. It is thought that his case is a hopeless one, and in this misfortune Winfield has lost one of her most active businessmen. Grenola Chief.
Winfield Courier, September 13, 1883.
Davie, the nine year old son of J. L. Hodges, was thrown from a horse while racing on the fair ground track Sunday evening and lay senseless for a time, though not injured seriously. Dolphie Green also received a fall from his pony Saturday, which laid him out for a few moments. Parents can’t be too careful about letting boys of this age use horses as they please. Being very venturesome, injurious results are apt to follow.

Gen. A. H. Green has returned to Winfield. He has greatly improved, and says he has made quite a speculation in real estate in some new railroad town in Missouri. We wish him continued prosperity.
Winfield Courier, December 13, 1883.

Gen. A. H. Green is again running the Real Estate business at the old stand. He has been a leading real estate man in this city for years and has sold large numbers of farms and city lots in this city and county. His success has been remarkable and in all his real estate transactions with all sorts of men, including the suspicious, jealous, and complaining kinds, we have never heard a complaint against his manner of dealing with them.
Winfield Courier, January 10, 1884.
Gen. A. H. Green has since he came back, been greeted by hosts of friends who were his friends and patrons and who would be happy to see him conducting his old business with his former success; but his health is not good enough to warrant him in attending strictly to business. He has been one of the most active businessmen in this whole section of the country and has done much for the advantage of his county. It is hoped that his health will ere long permit him to resume his work in the field he is so well fitted to occupy.

                                                        Ohio River Sufferers.
Gen. A. H. Green has left with us for publication a very strong appeal to the people of Cowley County to make up a train of twenty carloads of corn for the relief of the sufferers by the late floods of the Ohio River.
The communication is so very long that we have to condense it to make room, as it came in as late as Tuesday morning.
It recites the generous aid Kansas received from Eastern friends in 1884 when cursed with drouth and grasshoppers, the present sufferings of thousands of people along the Ohio, who have lost their all by the floods, and appeals to us to reciprocate from our present plenty the favors we received in our former distress, to relieve those now suffering who contributed to our relief.
It asks all citizens to set immediately to work, call township meetings, name MONDAY EVENING MARCH 24th as the time for such meetings, and the usual voting places as the places of convening these meetings; suggests that each such meeting appoint a committee of 3 ladies and 4 gentlemen, who shall proceed at once to canvass their respective townships and learn the number of wagon loads of corn and the amount of cash that would be donated, taking the names and amount donated.

Recites that cars will be furnished free to carry the corn to Ohio and that notice will be given each township committee as to when the cars will be ready at Winfield, mentions that Sedgwick County has already sent a train of 8 carloads of corn with banners flying, and hopes that at least 20 townships in this county will furnish 1 car each.
Winfield Courier, March 27, 1884.
Gen. A. H. Green has recovered his health, gone into business again, and is now issuing the eleventh edition of his paper, known as “Green’s Real Estate News.” These papers have always reflected credit upon the General as a businessman, besides giving land news of both local and general importance. His enterprise, untiring energy, close attention to business, and honorable and upright manner of dealing, make him well worthy of having, as he did for many years, the largest real estate business in the west; and, notwithstanding his few months’ retirement on account of sickness, he will soon take his former rank.
Winfield Courier, March 27, 1884.
                                                           To The Farmers.
While several of the townships, according to our suggestion, held meetings on last Monday evening and appointed township committees to canvass their respective townships, and have gone to work to secure a respectable corn donation for Ohio River sufferers, other townships failed to hold meetings. Now, we would ask that all townships which have failed to hold meetings already, call meetings for next Tuesday night, at their respective voting precincts, and appoint committees who will proceed at once to canvass their townships and learn and report the number of wagon loads of corn each township will furnish, when we will, without delay, order cars for shipment. Cars are to be furnished free by the Southern Kansas railroad. We would suggest that the Township Trustees take the lead in this matter in their respective townships, and think that each citizen of the township should consider himself a committee of one to help. A. H. GREEN.

                                                   FEEDING FOREIGNERS.
                                What We Ship to Help Feed the Less Favored Ones.
                                                           Record for 1883.
Last year was a very prosperous one for Cowley—more so perhaps than any since 1878.
Then our railroad facilities stimulate agriculture, which raises the bulk of our productions. Mr. Green has compiled for his Real Estate paper from the books of the Southern Kansas and Santa Fe railroads at this place figures which show the amount of products shipped out in car lots as follows:
Car loads of wheat and corn: 888
Car loads of flour: 530
Car loads of cattle, hogs, and sheep: 264
Car loads of stone: 337
Car loads of brick: 70
Car loads of wool, hides, butter, eggs, hay, etc.: 433
Total number of cars: 2,524
These are the shipments from Winfield alone, and while this is the central and concentrating point, it must be remembered that the other towns of the county on these railroad lines, Burden, New Salem, Cambridge, Torrance, Udall, Seeley, and Arkansas City make shipments, which in the aggregate will greatly swell the total given above.

                                                             The State Fair.
The writer attended the State Fair at Topeka last week on “Ben Butler Day,” and is prepared to confess that the caricatures devoted to “Old Ben” by Puck and Judge are absolutely flattering as to beauty. Ben is not at home as a stump speaker, especially in stalwart Republican Kansas, and his speeches elicited very little enthusiasm. The Fair was something to make blooming, happy Kansas prouder than ever, and an advertisement of incalculable benefit. Every department was complete. A look at the magnificent displays proved the feebleness of words to express the gigantic possibilities of the garden spot of the world, Sunny Kansas. We noticed on the grounds from Winfield: Misses Lizzie and Margie Wallis, and Messrs. R. E. Wallis, J. O. Taylor, W. H. Turner, A. H. Green, S. H. and A. H. Jennings, J. P. Short, Harry Bahntge, Chas. Schmidt, A. Gogoll, and Tom Matherson.

General A. H. Green had an ingenious April fool yesterday—salt colored by sorghum to a light brown and displayed as “Kansas sorghum sugar, from the Lawrence refinery.” Everybody was ready to taste this promising product. Very few escaped.
Winfield Courier, Thursday, April 23, 1885.
Judge Torrance got home this morning from a day at Kansas City, and immediately set the District Court to grinding. The day has been taken up with the case of A. H. Green against D. F. Best, suit to set aside a lease. The lease is for the store-room now occupied by Mr. Best. The lease reads for the whole building, Mr. Green claiming a mistake in its execution, which should have been for only the lower part. Trial by the court.

                                            THURSDAY NIGHT’S SOCIAL.
Winfield Courier, Thursday, July 2, 1885.

It used to be said that about the driest and most unsocial gatherings one could attend was a church social. It isn’t so, by any means, of church socials now-a-days, at least not those given in Winfield. There is a generous rivalry between our church organizations as to which can give the pleasantest entertainments—preserving that high plane of moral excellence that all exhibitions in the name of a church should have. Of course the double purpose of these meetings is to secure funds for contingent church expenses and to give those in attendance a pleasurable evening. In addition to this they afford an opportunity for the ministers and flocks to meet and converse with members of their churches on other than strictly church topics, and also to extend their acquaintance among those who, while not always “believers,” are often “supporters” of churches. It is at these gatherings that the real genuine minister of the gospel sows the seeds of charity, courtesy, and kindred virtues from which a hopeful harvest may afterward be reached. The world dislikes the pinch-faced, over-particular and ever sanctimonious person about as much as the truly good hate the sniveling hypocrite. And it goes without saying that the most popular minister and the most influential one for good is he who can occasionally lay aside the “robes of priestly office” and mingle among his neighbors much like other men. Not that he should forget his calling, and engage in amusements the nature of which brings him into dispute among his followers, but he may, with perfect propriety, take a hand in any one of the half a hundred pastimes which please the young folks and entertain “children of larger growth.” THE COURIER notes with pleasure that Winfield pastors belong to that school which refuses to crucify the body because it enjoys a hearty laugh, or condemns the soul to everlasting perdition because it finds convivial spirits while on earth. But we have wandered somewhat from our text—the Methodist social. It was one of the most enjoyable. Men and matrons, belles and beaux, girls and boys, were all there in full force, with their winsome smiles and pretty array. Of course, the main attraction, aside from the congeniality of those present, were the ice cream, raspberries, etc. There were six tables presided over by Mrs. C. D. Austin and Mrs. Dr. Pickens; Mrs. W. R. McDonald and Misses Maggie Bedilion and Nina Conrad; Mrs. W. H. Thompson and Mrs. J. W. Prather; Mrs. A. H. Green and Misses Anna Green and Hattie Andrews; Mrs. G. L. Rinker and Mrs. James Cooper; Mrs. S. G. Gary, Mrs. N. R. Wilson, and Miss Hattie Glotfelter, and a very busy and attentive bevy they were. The cream ran out long before the crowd was supplied—though they started in with twenty gallons or more. The Methodist orchestra, Messrs. Crippen, Shaw, Bates, Roberts, and Newton, with Miss Kelly at the organ, furnished beautiful music during the evening. It was a most enjoyable entertainment throughout. The seats having been removed, awaiting the placing of the new ones, the church made an excellent place for such an entertainment.
Winfield Courier, Thursday, July 16, 1885.
Mrs. Hattie Albert, of Carrollton, Missouri, is visiting her brother, Gen. A. H. Green. She will remain two weeks.
Winfield Courier, Thursday, July 30, 1885.
A. H. Green and D. F. Best are at it again. Thursday Best got out of Green’s building, taking with him its tail end, a little shed, which he said he owned. Green has sued him for “maliciously and feloniously” moving property off his (Green’s) premises.
Winfield Courier, Thursday, August 6, 1885.

Some time ago Best rented from Green a lot on Main street, and for his own convenience moved on to the lot a small building, which he placed on loose stones. Green recently notified him not to remove it. Best consulted his attorney, who advised him to pay no attention to the notice, and at the end of his tenancy, he removed the building. Green at once caused his arrest for severing the building from the freehold and removing it. The evidence was heard on Monday before Justice Snow who, this morning, rendered his decision of “not guilty,” as Best had a right to remove the building. Judge Snow further found that the prosecution was without probable cause, and adjudged that Green pay the cost.

Joe Harter is moving his drug store into the Green building, next to Johnston’s furniture store.
Winfield Courier, Thursday, August 20, 1885.
Dr. Emerson’s office is still over Harter’s drug store—but not at the old place. It is now in Green’s building, next to Johnston’s furniture store.

Another of the boys has fallen into the arms of Cupid and ended all in matrimony. Mr. Arthur H. McMaster and Miss Anna F. Green were joined in wedlock this afternoon at two o’clock, at the home of the bride’s parents, General and Mrs. A. H. Green, by Rev. B. Kelly. The wedding was a quiet one, only intimate friends and relatives being present. The happy pair left on the Santa Fe for an eastern bridal tour, taking in Chicago, Arthur’s old Michigan home, and on the return, stopping at Carrollton, Missouri, to visit the bride’s relatives. Mr. McMaster is one of Winfield’s staunchest and most popular young businessmen. His bride is possessed of many admirable qualities. She has grown to womanhood in Winfield, and marked the years with many friends. Mr. and Mrs. McMaster will receive the hearty congratulations all around. Here’s to your health, Arthur, and may yourself and bride glide down the long hill of time amid happy and prosperous years.

The First National Bank brick chimney with elongated sheet-iron attachment, blew over this Friday, striking Gen. Green’s office square on its pate. A hole was made four feet square, and the brick landed on the carpeted floor. The General was sitting in his arm chair and came in a foot of passing over the river.
Winfield Courier, Thursday, December 17, 1885.
For Rent. On and after March 1st, 1886, the southwest quarter of section 3, township 33, range 3, in Beaver township, owned by A. B. Story. A. H. Green, Agent.

Winfield Courier, Thursday, December 24, 1885.
John Lebo, now sentenced to be hung in Butler County, Missouri, is the same John Lebo who used to run a candy stand here and who undertook to lick General Green, and several others. It looks as though the General didn’t give him enough and save him this trouble.
Winfield Courier, Thursday, December 31, 1885.
E. W. Lichenor, a traveling artist, enlarged a picture for A. H. Green, who paid him in full and got a receipt in full, when Lichenor demanded five dollars more. The General had fulfilled his agreement, took up the picture, and walked off with it, whereupon the artist arrested him for disturbing his peace in carrying off the picture against said artist’s will. The trial will come off this evening before Judge Snow. The General has the receipt and will prove the disturbance all on the other side. Traveling venders of any kind will seldom do to deal with. They should all be “shook.”
Winfield Courier, Thursday, December 31, 1885.
General Green downed the peregrinating artist, G. W. Tichenor, before Judge Snow Wednesday. The prosecution was found to be without cause and his artistship paid the $20 or more costs.
          [Note: First article said “Lichenor.” Second article above said “Tichenor.”]
Winfield Courier, Thursday, January 7, 1886.
General Green has, during the last two weeks, made sales aggregating $24,000. We found this out accidentally. The General never tells, and much less “blows” about his business. We think this pretty good for dull times, but there is no use in talking, when the General don’t do business there is not much use in anybody else trying. He says he gets up in the forenoon, is an old soldier, but don’t want anybody to raise money to help him. When he can’t help himself and depend upon his own resources, he will quit this mundane sphere.
                                                              FOR RENT.
Winfield Courier, Thursday, January 7, 1886.
On and after March 1st, 1886, the sw ¼ of section 3, township 33, range 3, in Beaver township, owned by A. B. Story. A. H. Green, Agent.

I have a customer who wants a good farm not to exceed five miles from the city, and has the cash to pay for it. A. H. Green.
Winfield Courier, Thursday, February 11, 1886.
I have a customer who wants a $5,000 farm and has the cash. A. H. Green.
