Courts.—The tribunals of Kansas consist of a United States circuit court, a United States district court, a state supreme court, thirty-eight district courts, municipal courts in certain cities, and at least one justice of the peace in each civil township. The United States circuit court, William C. Hook, judge, meets at Topeka on the fourth Monday in November, at Leavenworth on the first Monday in June, at Fort Scott on the first Monday in May, and the second Monday in November, and at Wichita on the second Monday in March and September. The United States district court, John C. Pollock, judge, meets at Topeka on the second Monday in April, at Leavenworth on the second Monday in October, and at Fort Scott and Wichita at the same times as the circuit court.

Originally the state supreme court consisted of three justices, but by a constitutional amendment, ratified at the general election of 1900, the number of justices was increased to seven. (See Constitutional Amendments.) In 1911 the court was composed as follows: Chief Justice, William A. Johnston; associate justices, Rousseau A. Burch, Henry F. Mason, Clark A. Smith, Silas Porter, Charles B. Graves and Alfred W. Benson. The clerk of the court at that time was D. A. Valentine, and the reporter was L. J. Graham. (See also Judiciary.)
