Colonel William A. Phillips, of Salina,
Kansas, died here yesterday, lie had
come down on business, when he was
overtaken by sickness.
Colonel Phillips was one of the best
known men in Kansas, and belongs to
tin-history of Its early days. He was
of Scottish birth, but immigrated with
his father to Randolph county. 111.
I pon reaching man's estate he prac-
ticed law and edited a newspaper at
Chester. 111., for several years, and
a so became prominent as an author,
writing for several magazines, and
also publishing a number of books.
In 1- * he became a member of the
>\-w York Tribune staff. In that year
he came to Kansas as their Kansas
. orrespondent. In 1*.' 7 he conceived
the idea "f founding a colony, and de-
termined upon the site now
order to de-

not entitled to settle thereon.

When the police descent led on the

ister Hammock, at the town of Wood-

aside with some emphasis by the peo-
pie, he proceeded to jjet very utiffty
and concluded that lie could run the

An item appeared in the Perry Detn-
•••-rat to the effect that Mrs. 1. II.
Mryker. of tin- city, liad been dr:iw-
iiifraudulent pension asa widow and
that bring confronted by Special 1'en-
i,Lin Agent Thomas Moelislager stated
that she found out tiiat iter
husband liad another wife and
by tiiat clreainstanee she thought ^he
wa- :ill entitled to it The statement
is in purt erroneous. Mrs. Stryker
drew the pension under tile idea that
remarriage did not deprive her of it,
that she still continued to be the
soldier's widow. When she was noti-
fied of the mistake by Special Agent
Moekslager. she immediately paid the
overdraft back. The following re-
ceipt from Mr. Stockslager is its own
evidence of this faet:

The story that Professor Stryker has

the Nickel Plate system. Those who
felt proud of the advancement of Mr.

This combination of government con-
trol. personal interest and corporate
selection is somewhat startling* to those
who have followed the History of the

sition the chairmen « f the respective
