Early yesterday morning delegates com
menced to arrive for the Republican coun
ty convention to select a delegation to rep
resent the county in the congressional con
vention of the Seventh district at Dodge
City on July 30. They seemed all hopeful
that the deliberations would be harmoni

in a way reflecting credit on the Republi
can party of Sedgwick. They were serious
and earnest and hoped to secure a delega

court house who were discus&ing the con
gressional situation. They realized that it
was the commencement of a campaign
most important in every respect to the
party and also very much depended on
The call for the convention designated 2
p. m. at the district court room. At that
time there were nearly three hundred dele
gates present besides many spectators.
The chairman of the county central com

and in giving an outline of the work to be
Gentlemen of the convention: As
chairman of your committee I desire to

1 congratulate you further upon the op
portunity that now preents itself of select-
ing for our standard bearer for tho comin
congressional contest a man from anion
our own people and our own citizenship.
I congratulate you still further upon the
almost certainty that the standard of Re
publicanism of tho approaching con
gressional contest will be placed in tho
strong and loj-al hands of our own beloved
fellow citizen, the gallant soldier, the
matchless statesman, tho elegant friend
and neighbor, Colonel James K. Hallowell.
I bespeak for you in all of your nehnera

mity, for your head and heart utter but
one name "and your desires concentrate
around the accomplishment of but one
nurnose. That name is the maeical name
of Hallowell, and that purpose is to invest
him with tho rob of congressional honors.
We have not met today to decide this
question; our decision has long since been
rendered, but we have assembled in a
formal way to construct a delegation to go
to Dodge City, to whom we shall transmit
the universal wish and desires of Sedgwick
county Republicans: and when that con
vention at Dodge City shall have adjourn
ed and tho name of Hallowell shall have
been Hashed over the wires in this district
as our candidate, then we shall feel that
our work here has not been in vain for the
promotion of Republican principles and
the advrucement of the rights and inter
ests of our people."
The name of Colonel Hallowell was re
ceived with great euthusiasm, and at the
close of his remarks Mr. Henley was given
a liberal hand.
The oilicial call was read by the secre
tary of the committee, Mr. John Kelly,
after which tho chair inquired the pleasure
of the convention. Mr. Charles Ballance
placed in nomination for temporary chair
man Colonel M. Stewart, whose name was
received with applause. Ho was selected
by a unanimous vote and escorted to the
chair by Mr. Ballanoe and Mr. George L.
Douglass. On reaching the chair the col
onel was given a welcome applause and in
a few words extended thanks for the honor
and expressed the hope that the conven
tion would do its work with due delibera

ornamental iron gates and balusters runs

making large, airy rooms for the
large corps of clerks. The rear of

most every piece of machinery ever heard

methodically so that the manager can put
his hand on any particular piece needed
at a moment's notice, and in the dark if
necessary. The eastern part of this por

ready turned out or in process of making.
The main part of the ground floor of

SOME POINTED OPINIONS
Upon a Number of Pertinent Questions From
3Icn Competent to Make Correct Estimate.
H. G. Toler Sensations are the order of
the day and I think I will soon have one
that will set horsemen to talking from one
end of the country to the other. I have
in training now a span of yearling colts
that I expect will, with a little training,
be able to make a mile in three minutes,
this will be the first instance on record of
yearlings trotting double. The team shows
up very nicely thus far. I expect by the
time of the fall races to have an attraction
well worth seeing and that they will make
the original yearling team record of the
A. Katz Since the first of March my
trade has been 33 1-3 per cent, better than
it was last year during same time. The
advance in grain was a great help to the
farmer, and the merchant who had any
farmers' trade felt the effect very per
ceptibly. I have talked to a great many
farmers and almost universally they say
that the crop prospects are the best they
have ever had, some farmers estimating
that their wheat will yield thirty-five to
forty bushels per acre. With fair prices
for farm products Wichita merchants
ought to have a big trade this fall.
John Miltner, grain dealer Tho low
price of grain last fall and -winter, com
bined with a car famine during tho time
when farmers had time to haul their
grain, has left an unusual amount of corn
on hand and it is not an unusual thing
for a farmer to have half of last year's
crop on hand. Wheat harvest has com
menced in earnest and it promises to be a
very good grade of wheat. The fields in
Sedgwick county and west of it promise
better than Cowley and Sumner counties,
although their large acreage will give
them an immense amount of wheat. A
good many farmers have been trying dur
ing the past week to contract new wheat,
proposing to thrash out of the stock. I
should not be surprised if the mills made
flour from new wheat during this month.
Major Hartwig, St. Joe, Mo. I am on
my return from Salt Lake City and Den
ver and stopped off for a day or two to
look after my property here. I have prop
erty in several western cities but at no
place have I property that has paid me so
well as my four stores on Douglas avenue.
I bought the property in an early day and
my rents have about paid for the invest
ment aud improvements. I should like to
own some more business property, well
located in Wichita. I notice that the ele
vator business is being agitated. You peo
ple are on the right track and the sooner
you have a well organized grain market
here tho better it will bo for the city and

My opinion of Wichita is the same that
it alwa-s has been that it is bound to be
the city of Kansas.
John Exton 1 have been living for the
past two years at Minneapolis, Minn. I
have just returned and exjiect to make
Wichita my home now. What strikes me
very forcibly is tho opportunities here to
engage m proSitable business. 1 am sur
prised that others do not see them. There
are a great many kinds of business not
reptesented and others that are represent
ed in a way that they do not occupy the
field. By comparing Wichita today with
what she was two years ago I am greatly
encouraged, as I can see where our city has
gained very much in all that pertains to a
city. I have an opportunity of comparing
Wichita with other prosperous citie, ami
I am satisfied that she has the best pros
pects of any city I have visited.
Colonel B. II. Campbell The District
fair to lie held hero this fall promises to be
one of the best ever held in Kansas. The
oflicers and directors of the association
have been hard at work for mouths and
the results are very satisfactory. There is
no reason why this should not be the best
fair held in the state this year. Tho busi
ness men of Wichita ought to offer special
premiums, as it would create a greater in
terest in the display-. Some business
houses have promised very handsome
premiums and the example should bs fol
lowed by all lines of business. I think the
fair will be a big thing for Wichita and for
the southwest and hope our people will see
the importance of doing all they can to
make it a success.
Robinson Farmer Las-t year I rafed
130,000 bushels of corn and 15.000 bushels
of wheat. 1 would like to see a larger ele
vator capacity, regular grade establiahed
and an inspection pnt on grain at Wichita
that will give it, a value v jnever there is
a demand for it. The elevators wowkl be
benefit to the farmers, as it is almost im
possible to hold wheat over winter and
keep it sweet without handling it in the
tight box bins Used by farmers. Very often
th- fanner able to hold hU wheat for the
spring market finds it has deteriorated 1
being handled. Corn last year srrro
large the ear was large, Uie cob wa large
ar.d the kernel was large it took a good
den! of drying to ;ret the moisture out of
it. and lat fall being wet the revolt was
that a great deal of corn that went on the
market graded lower than it woH had it
lieen dry. The moisture or ttlams in the
corn made it better for feodiaa; stock, in
in judgment. Above all things Wichita
needs a good grain market.
Lorenzo Armstrong, New Havea I have
pnt in several days in looking over yowr
ciry and county. I am surprised upon
1 every hand. New Haven is knows aa the
"City of Elms,'' and probably has more
shade trees than any town in New Eng-
land, but Wichita mrpamsm ner. Mow
your people hare made stack a beaotif al
place in so short a time is something I can j
