Arkansas City Traveler, September 17, 1879.
The case of Hill vs. Lilly was tried before ‘Squire Bonsall Monday morning. It seems that Mrs. Hill was claiming the wages of her son from the proprietors of the brick yards at Harmon’s Ford, for whom young Hill had been working, last Saturday afternoon, and some difference arising as to the amount due young Hill, an elder brother called the attention of a Mr. Grant to something he had omitted in the account. A Mr. Lilly, an attache of the brick yard, standing near, deemed this sufficient cause for interference, and pulling off his coat, he made use of some big-meaning words and asked Hill if he wanted anything. Hill didn’t need anything in Lilly’s line at that time; but on Monday morning, he wanted Lilly to step up and answer to the charge of assault and battery. The ’Squire fixed his fine at two dollars and costs, making nine dollars and twenty cents. Rather than pay it, Lilly concluded to go to Winfield and study the hieroglyphics on the inside of the county jail walls; but at the last minute, he thought better of it and paid his fine.

Arkansas City Traveler, January 4, 1882.
Messrs. Harry Finley and Harry Hill, aged respectively about 15 years, enamored of the delights of travel as pictured to them by a young man much their senior and whose conduct in this matter cannot be too severely censured, last week left the parental roof and embarked via the A. T. & S. F. for parts unknown.
They stopped off at Winfield, however, and were there seen by Mr. Patterson, who learning they were there without leave of absence, telegraphed to Mr. Finley, who at once hitched up and drove to the hub, returning with the adventurous youths, who if the truth must be told evinced no great amount of sorrow at finding themselves safe at home again. Their older companion, we are informed, was headed for Cincinnati, Ohio, and our city is to be congratulated on being rid of him.

Arkansas City Traveler, Wednesday, December 24, 1884.
The thirty mile race at the skating ring last week ended Saturday night. This race has been very hotly contested, and was won on the merits of the contestants. The result as to first place has never been doubted. But the result as to the second place might have been changed if one of the parties who commenced had been excluded sooner. The result is as follows.
Del Williams, first prize, $10, won by four laps over second place and nine laps over third.
Harry Hill, second prize, $5.
[HIGH SCHOOL CORRESPONDENT: “HATTIE.”]
Arkansas City Republican, Saturday, February 7, 1885.
Of the many pleasant afternoons we have spent in the High School, Thursday, the 29th of January, was certainly the most pleasant.
School was in regular session in the morning, but a few of our young artists were busy decorating the boards in honor of Kansas.
Several well written essays, among which were “Evils of Kansas,” Harry Hill, and the “Geography of Kansas,” Wilford Edward, were of necessity omitted from the programme.
We trust that our manner of celebrating Kansas’ twenty-fourth birthday may leave the desired impression on the minds and hearts of our young folks and create in them a love for the state of whose record they may well be proud. I cannot refrain from closing with Forney’s oft quoted words:
“If I had been commanded to choose one spot on the globe upon which to illustrate human development under absolute liberty, I could have chosen no part of God’s foot stool so interesting as Kansas, yesterday an infant, today a giant, tomorrow—Who can tell?”

Survey Party Returns.
The survey party in charge of Chief Engineer Morehead, which left here early in April to survey the route for the Kansas City and Southwestern railway, returned to town on Monday. It consists of T. S. Morehead, Harry Hill, Dan McDonald, T. E. Coppage, Dr. J. D. Love, James Jones, C. W. Robinson, Will McCune, Fred. Barrett, and W. T. Sherwood. The survey was begun at Beaumont, Butler County, and carried on amid interruptions from rain storms and swollen creeks to within three miles of Arkansas City. The track is begun at Beaumont and three miles of rail laid; the work of grading is being actively carried forward. The route surveyed is found entirely practicable; cuts and fills will be light; but some slight deviation will be made on account of creeks. Some portions of the route will require to be done over, in order to make connections, the bad weather interfering with the work. The three miles intervening between the city and the end of the survey will shortly be gone over, and the survey continued to the state line. The election for bonds will be held on Monday, and if approved, we may expect to see this line completed to our city borders during the summer, and an important factor added to our future progress.

REV. DR. HILL, PRESBYTERIAN MINISTER.
Arkansas City Traveler, February 18, 1885.
Rev. Dr. Hill at Presbyterian Church.
We had the pleasure of listening to a very interesting talk by Rev. Dr. Hill, of Kansas City, Synodical missionary for Kansas and the Indian Territory, at the Presbyterian Church last Sunday evening. His talk was about the Indians and the work of the Presbyterian Church in their midst. We made some notes of points of interest which we append. There are thirty Indian tribes in the Territory and thirty dialects spoken. The Indians were brought from all points of the compass, from Alabama, Florida, Montana, Idaho, Tennessee, New York, Iowa, Mississippi, and Kansas. The most civilized Indians are the Cherokees. Among them the most missionary work has been done. The least civilized are Cheyennes or Apaches. Among them the least missionary work has been done. Which apparently proves the statement of the Dr. that to the christian missionaries the Indians are indebted for their civilization.
The Dr. has traversed every part of the Territory east of the 110th meridian. He says the Territory is very much inferior to either the same scope of country in Kansas or Missouri, being in parts very rocky, exceedingly mountainous, a good part of the prairie having alkali in composition. The Oklahoma land being no exception to that so far as he could tell. The word Oklahoma is of Indian origin, composed of Oklahoma people, and home, red, meaning the land of the red people. This name is certainly significant, as it was called this in the treaty of 1866. Among the Indians, the Cherokees and Creeks are increasing in population, the majority of the other tribes decreasing. These two tribes have a great mixture in blood, the former principally of white and Indian, and the latter principally negro and Indian.
After the address a collection was taken up for the purpose of aiding in the establishment of a mission school at Tahlequah.

The Leland Hotel Comes Near Going Up in Smoke.
Jerry McGee, a Discharged Employee, Arrested for the Crime.
He is Examined and Committed for Trial in the District Court.
On Wednesday evening, shortly before ten o’clock, a cry of fire proceeded from the Leland Hotel, which caused serious consternation, and the office and hall of the building were soon filled with people. In a very few minutes the gratifying news was spread that the fire was extinguished and all danger was over.
“In the hall, just forward of the stairs, is a sleeping room occupied by Mrs. Hill. I burst her door open, awakening her with the noise; and seizing her water pitcher, I also emptied that over the burning material, and this effectually extinguished the fire.”
Witness on request of the county attorney drew a diagram of the ground floor of the hotel, and explained to the court where the fire was discovered. There was a scuttle hole under the stairs, which was all ablaze. To get at the fire he had to get down on his knees, and thrust the pitcher into the aperture. The flames charred the wood. He found a pasteboard box there, in which a pair of skates had lain. The position of this box had been changed, and it contained rags saturated with kerosene. Had seen the accused about the place during the evening. The fire was discovered about ten o’clock. Mrs. Hill was asleep in her room; there were guests in the other rooms of the house.
Mr. Pomyea got to the Leland about 9:45. Thinks the fire occurred 20 or 25 minutes after the bus got up. Just saw a flash of the fire; Mr. Perry, the girl, Mrs. Hill, and a guest were there. Had never seen the box before. No lamp rags were kept in the scuttle hole; they were sent to the laundry and washed every morning after the lamps were cleaned. Took the box after the fire and placed it under the counter. (The box with its half consumed contents was produced in court.)

Johnnie Hill will remain in the employ of Mr. Kirker. Mr. Perry, we are told, will remove to his cattle ranch in Chautauqua County.

Arkansas City Traveler, September 29, 1886.
On Saturday the Leland Hotel changed hands, its late proprietor, B. G. Kirker, turning over the business to J. D. Ward, a Dexter benefactor of some celebrity. The new landlord celebrated the change of hands by inviting a host of friends to dinner on Sunday. His hospitality was partaken by about 200 guests who sat down to as bounteous a repast as was ever served up in this city. The cooking was excellent, and the table service prompt and efficient, two or three waiters being stationed at every table. Mr. Ward, as a caterer, has won the favorable regard of all the patrons of the house, and he starts upon his new enterprise with the spirit of a man who can keep a hotel. John D. Hill, we are glad to announce, will be retained as chief clerk. Mr. Kirker will remain in the city.

From East Bolton.
ED. REPUBLICAN: Thinking an item from these parts would be of interest to your many readers, I will tell you something of the land exchange since the Frisco struck the state line, not yet 12 months ago. We will commence with the Roberts farm, containing 80 acres, and Beck’s, 80; Hill’s, 98; Whitney’s, 80; Greenbaum, 80; Beeton, 80; Kennedy, 80; Bond, 85; Branson, 80; Ray, 80; Edwards, 80; Herndon, 80; Brown, 320; Holt, 160; Topliff, 480; Pattison, 240; which, if I correctly count, is 2,182 acres, all sold at a fair price. We tell you this to let you know that while we are proud to see Arkansas City’s advancement, we intend to keep as near her as farmers can.
Our crops were light, but we nearly all have enough for our needs, and some have more. Our schools are doing very well. If there is anything of interest, we may appear again in the future. FARMER.
