A CANNING FACTORY.
Canning Factory in Prospect That Will
Create a Business of Some .Magnitude.
Amongst the many enterprises that are
being discussed by capitalists in relation
iu icmui a canning iactory seems to oe
the one that will the soonest assume a
business like shape. A gentleman has
been in the city for several days with a
view to estimating the prospects for such
an enterprise and left last evening with
his mind fully made up. In conversation
with Mr. L. D. Skinner, to whom he
brought introductions, he said that so far
as he was concerned his mind was made
up and if his partner could see. the matter
in tho same light as himself, they would
shortly be looking for a location. In ans
wer to questions he further said that there
were a few drawbacks which would always
exist until a large factory was in active
operation. In his opinion any business
would make its way and recieve from all
sides the recognition to which it was en
titled. So far as the produce was concern
ed lie said, there would be plenty by the
time the factory was ready for it and was
a consideration in tho business that always
looked after itself. In his opinion the best
location in the state was all that was de
sired as the resources and business of Kan
sas was scarcely tapped yet. He thought
there could bo little doubt but that Wich
ita would be the point of all others. If be
was mistaken in this he would always
blame the citizena for it as it was as plain
as a man's nose on his face that Wichita
had all the advantage. The opening for an
institution of this sort is apparent to any
one that will step into a grocey and learn
where the product that is displayed in cans
is from and put up.

A "EAV RETAIL, STORE.
The sewer committee meeting last even
ing at council chamber, wa3 attended by
members Buckridge, Martin and Carson
who were assisted by City Clerk McXair
and Mr. Sullivan, of Sullivan &Steinmets,
sewer contractors. It appeared that there
yet remains about three miles of sewer
pipe to put down, and that right of way
has been secured except through ten tracts.
The committee is having some trouble in
getting this feature of it settled and the
list was examined last night and the work
proportioned out to the members. Some
of the fellows who have property in the
way want more for damage than members
of the committee think is due. It is
thought in case there are no better terms
made that they will force their way
through by means of the law or the engi
neer may be able to go around the property
through which admittance has been re
fused. Reaching the flush tank question the
matter of how far it would be a good in
vestment to conduct water for flushing
purposes Avas considered. The city en
gineer reported that the sewer system and
all of it not supplied with water for flush
ing purposes would be of no benefit and
the complaints in the hot season would be
numerous. On the Mosely avenue main
north of Oak street the water for the flush
tanks in places would have to be conducted
two thousand feet, which at 10 cents per
foot would cost considerable. Mosely
avenue south of Harry was also far away
from water and, the same problem present
ed for that section. To flush by hand
carts would cost at least calcula
tion ?5i annually to fill the flush
tank once per day. This plan also had
always been unsatisfactory wherever tried
for those employed to do the work would
often slight it. As would be seen alsojt
would be quite expensive. He suggested
that the committee confer with the water
company on tho question of extending
mains to North and South Mosley, which
if extension is made would solve the prob
lem. He also recalled that the water com
pany could not be compelled to extend tho
mains to any district until one customer
for each hundred feet of main had been
secured. In the sections where mains
were needed for flushing he doubted very
much if that number of consumers could
be found, as the residents there had other
water facilities. It was absolutely neces
sary, however, to have water for the flush
tanks and it must be secured in some way.
On motion of Martin the committee de
cided to request the water committee
to negotiate with the water company
and see what terms could be secured. Car
son thought probably more fire plugs
could be taken or the water company in
.some way could be induced to extend the
In order to give complete satisfaction the
head of every latteral should bo supplied
with a flush tank, according to the engineer.
Formerly it was intended to make such an
arrangement, but when the cost of con
structing the tanks and patent ciphon
were found to be $G3 it was thought best
to cut the number from two hundred and
seventy-nine to about one hundred and
eighty. Of these ordered only about
twelve have beeu constructed and are giv
ing service. Mr. Sullivan says the tanks
should have been put in as the latterals
were completed, but until recently no ac
tion was taken about the tanks. The con
stant tapping of the mains by residents, ho
says, in tho absence of flush tanks has're
sulted in -stopping themainsup inmany
places, which will create no little trouble,
not only to contractors, but to some of the
residents, who will suffer from sewage
in mains. He thinks before the hot season
arrives all the tanks ordered will be con
structed and the main? stopped up so there
will be as little inconvenience as possible.
The committee on fire and water, con
sisting of McKee, Johnson and Coffin, held
a meeting yesterday and looked over some

AFTER A GOOD FAE1T. J
Mr. J. N. York", of McLean, county, Illi
nois, called yesterday. Mr. York brings
his family and has rented a house. In the
meantime as spring opens out he will keep
an eye out for as good a farm as he can
find in the county, which will be the best
in the United States. He proposes to take
his time and look for himself, being an
agriculturist of experience, knowing from
innumerable signs what are and what are
not choice lands.
BIG RECEIPTS OF LIVE STOCK AT THE
1171 cattle and 1212 hogs is certainly good

pressed into serpice in order to handle the
large number of cattle which came in.
You will find interesting reading in the
live stock market report this morning.
Every man in this city ought to feel proud
of Wichita and her very bright prospects
as a great live stock market and packing

outdoing them all for age.
SEVEXTY-FIRST AXXI VERSA RY.

Great preparations have been made for
them and a big banquet will be served.
Should the day prove unfavorable the ex

The canton will go in full uniform. A
special train with four coaches has been
provided by the Wichita & Western which
will leave the Union depot this morning at
9 o'clock. The same train will return,
leaving Kingman about 5:30, arriving at
Wichita shortly after 7 in the evening.
The boys anticipate a good time and there
is every reason to believe their expecta

A CLEAR CASE.
Last night shortly after 1 o'clock as Chief
Burrows was going home, he noticed that
a little house on the corner of Pearl and
Walnut streets, West Side, was on fire and
immediately turned in an alarm. The de
partment with four horses to each engine
and hose wagon, ploughed over through
the mud and managed to get
the fire out before it got fairly started. The
house is occupied by Mrs. Roberts who
was away from homo at the residence of a
neighbor. Nery little was in the house ex
cept a stove and the kitchen furniture.
The damage to the property was about ?o0.
While searching the premises for the
origin of the fire a keg was found under
the stairway which was filled with kind
ling half burned and which had evidently
been coal oiled. This was brought back
as a souvenir and a full examination will
be made into the case today. Chief Wal
den said he had no doubt but that the fire
was intentional and Chief Burrows nnd all
others present concurred in the opinion.

With the advance of spring business is
looking up with the retail trade, and the
best evidence of this is in the fact that
several new stores will bo opened very
shortly. A dry goods house and two new
groceries are spoken of as certain, while
several other branches are likely to find
themselves with new competitors in the
field. The foregoing was the gist of a con
versation new yesterday between some
business men, and, as usual, soma one
wanted to have all the particulars and get
down to a sure thing at once. In response
to this a gentleman of undoubted veracity
stated that he knew for a fact of one new
store that would be opened in the gents'
furnishing line within a month and he ex
pected to see their display ad in the Eagle
almost any day now. He went on to state
that the store would be located in the first
or second block east of Main on the north
side of Douglas, and that it would be one
of the finest stores in the city, carrying
the most complete stock in the line. One
gentleman is a well known business man
of this city and his partner is from Cincin
nati, and will be in this city to stay this
coming week. As they are both good
business men, with years of experience, it
is .safe to say that they will make it a go.
As the speaker would not give any further
information the subject was dropped at
Some of the sidewalk contractors, it is
claimed, have been following up the old
plan of accepting money from property
owners and construct walk. Some fellow
who does not want walk put down to be
charged up to his property gives a few
dollars to the contractor and sidewalk is
not constructed. If walk is not turned in
and paid for, and the city engineer claims
to keep watch that none is paid for that
has not been constructed, the contractor
gets something out of it anyhow and prop
erty owners built on the boodle plan get in
their work and keep down the improve
ment ordered. Two or three have been
bold enough to announce they had got
contractors to glance over them and
thought it a very bright thing to do and
only a very bright man could handle it
that way. One of them is accredited with
asserting that ho could buy any sidewalk
contractor, and it would be a cold day
when they got a sidewalk down at his ex
pense. The public improvement committee of
tho council have the matter in hand and
according to a member proposes to figure
on filling in some of the missing links.
Also it is hoped within the next few weeks
to have the missing links of walk on the
north side of Douglas avenue from the
river to Washington avenue put in and
the sidewalk improvement for the avenue

The brethren of Kingman have made
elaborate preparation for the celebration
of the 71st anniversary of our order today.
We are assured by their committee that in
case of stormy weather, there are ample
accomodations for all who attend, and
abundance of provision. In view of these
facts it is especially desired that every Odd
Fellow in the city, whatever their business
and regardless of the weather, arrange to
go with she excursion to Kingman today.
This excursion may be attended by any
one, and is an excellent opportunity for
those having business in Kingman or de
siring to visit that city and its numerous
objects of interest to do so at a small ex
pense. Let Wichita be fully represeneed
there today. Train leaves union depot at

Tho Young People's Literary society
met last night as usual at the Baptist
church, .and executed a very interesting
program. The society wascalled to order
by President H. S. McMichael, and in the
absence of Benjamin Root, the secretary,
Andrew Smith was appointed secretary
pro tern. J. F. Adams, Esq., was appointed
critic. Mr. W. T. Walker opened the ex
ercises with prayer, followed by an excel
lently rendered recitation, "A Handsomer
Man," b3' Miss Nannio Clegg, and also an
entertaining recitation entitled "Little
Phil," by Miss Jessie Reynolds.
Mr. H. O. Harrison was appointed usher
and the following named persons judges of
the merits of arguments in the discussion:
J. J. Fegtley, W. T. Walker, C. A. Smith
and Diamond Mitchell. The question de
bated was, "Resolved, That the free coin
age of silver would be beneficial to tho
country." The regular disputants were:
Affirmative, S. D. Lieurence, Thomas Ir
win; negative, L. S. Bailey, H. S. McMich
ael. The judges named above gave
their decision as to the weight of
argument in favor of the affirmative, and
the audience gave their decision in favor of
the affirmative also. The critic's report
was rendered, after which the general dis
cussion of the questiod was participated in
by W. T. Walker, J. J. Fegtlry, J. S. Jen

lot." Andrew Smith, as secretary, and
Diamond Mitchell, as vice president, were
elected for the ensuing two weeks. Liter
ary exercises of different natures will be

THE EXCURSIONS TO KANSAS.
Quite a number of excursionisto arrived
yesterday, most of them from Pennsylva
nia and Michigan. The first excursion un
der the auspices of the State Immigration
Bureau, while not a howling success, ac
cording to some interested in the -work, is
enough of a success to give entire satisfac
tion. The reading matter about the siate
being sent out is referred to as doing good
all over the east and as it takes time for
business men to investigate, not so many
were prepared to come on we first oopor
tunity offered for cheap rates. It is
thought the May excursion will be much
more of a success than the present one, jd
it is estimated that by next fall with the
proper work and attention by the Bnreau
there will be many thonsaJMl homeseekera
looking over Kansas and as certain as
theyrinvestigate just o cei tain is it they
will locate in Kansas.
Prof. Gentry's Equine and Canine show
was the attraction at the Crawford Grand
last night, and considering the weather,
was well attended. If this afternoon and
evening are fine it is safe to say the opera
house will be packed. The audience wit
nessed a much more interesting entertain
ment than is billed and the iutelb'gence
displayed by the ponies and dogs is simply
incredible. They dance, pose, and do
everything except talk. Barney's back
somersault is a wonder, while one holds
their breath during Dalmeta's perilous
leap. Aside from the wonderful part of
the entertainment both dogs and ponies
seem to have a keen appreciation of any
thing funny and are constantly playing
amusing pranks. During the performance
Juliet comes out and takes a peat in the
box and carries on a dreadful flirtation
with the audience. Major clowns every act
and then comes before the curtain for ap
plause. If no one notices him he walks
back very sheepish, but if he gets a hand,
as he usually does, he retires in the most
graceful manner. After the ontertain
ment last night the audience was invited
back to see the pets, and many took ad
vantage of the opportunity. Major meets
everyone at the stage entrance and wants
to shake hands, and if any dogs are noticed
he is very much offended. One of the
young ponies expects to be petted and
wants to set down on everybodv's lap.
The see-saw and grand tableau are ab-o
very interesting features. The audience
seemed to enjoy the performance very
much, and was lavish with its applause,
which encourages the animals perceptibly.
COLONEL BAIN'S LECTURE.
Colonel Bain lectures this evening at the
First M. E. church, taking for his subject

Mr. J. J. Fegtley, clerk of the school
board, says the calculations on the cost of
heating school buildings and rooms enables
the board to find out extravagant janitors
and the buildings where the neighbors
visit most in search of fuel. In three
buildings of the same size and same kind
of heating apparatus there is quite a varia
tion. The average for one building $3.1S
per room per month and for another .?5.i:i
per room per month, In some buildings
where stoves were used tho average cost
was $1.50 per room per month and in oth
ers $4.14 for the same sen ire. The varia
tion is thought to be a little too much for
relief of monotony simply.
GENTLEMEN who are bald will appreciate the Ivory Soap for
washing the head, for it quickly removes the oily exudations
of the scalp and by the application of clear water after the head and
hair are well lathered, the soap is instantly rinsed off, in other words
it does not leave a gummy substance on the scalp, or the hair
harsh and stiff with dry lather. The "Ivory" is, par excellence, thei
soap for the purpose.
A WORD OF WARNING.
There are many white soaps, each represented to be "just as good as the 'Ivory1 '
they ARE NOT, but like all counterfeits, lack the peculiar and remarkable qualities ot
the genuine. Ask for "Ivory" Soap and insist upon getting it.'
