City Marshal Marion Thomas was shot and killed when he attempted to arrest a man in a saloon who was drunk and creating a disturbance. The suspect surrendered to the city marshal in nearby Galena.

The suspect was convicted of City Marshal Thomas' murder and sentenced to 20 years in prison. On April 5th, 1902, he was released from prison when the Kansas Supreme Court ruled that the court that tried him was illegally created.

Empire City, Kansas, was annexed into Galena, Kansas, in 1907.
