GOVERNOR BISHOP AT HOJIE.
From the Cincinnati Commercial.
Governor Bishop and his daughter, Miss
Auna, have returned to the city after
spending some weeks with his son, Hon.
W. T. Bishop, and family, at Wichita,
Kan. The governor expresses himself as
greatly delighted with the business pros
pects of his son, and especially with the fu
ture prospects of this remarkable city of
the southwest. He speaks in high terms
of the growing crops and the beautiful
country by which Wichita is surrounded,
and he is well satisfied that Wichita will,
eventually, be a great place of business and
a pleasant place to reside.
The building committee of the school
board held a meeting yesterday morning
and opened bids submitted for building
the addition to the high school building.
There were a number of bids on hand and
variation from the highest to the lowest
was quite marked. The committee will
submit its report at the next regular meet
ing of the board, which comes Monday ev
ening next. While the estimate as re
ported by the architect calls for a little
over $6,000 some of the contractors main
tain that it will bo impossible to construct
the building according to plans and get
below the estimate. It is thought, how
over, that a bid will be found below the es
timate and according to a member of the
committee there will be but little trouble
to net the building put up for an amount
within the estimate.
DEATH OP MKS. INGALXS.
Mrs. Sarah A. Ingalls died at her home,
No. 1225 North Mead avenue, at 5 o'clock
p. m Sunday, June 29. Deceased was in
her forty-ninth year and had been in deli
cate health for several years, though she
had not been confined to the house for
some time previous to the day before her
death, at which she was seized with
violent attack of neuralgia of the heart
and suffered intensely until rendered un
conscious thereby, and a few hours later
death came to her relief. Rev. N. Har
mon conducted brief but appropriate
funeral services over the remains at the
family residence at 4 o'clock yesterday p.
m. and the remains were laid to rest in
Maple Grove cemetery. Deceased had no
family save Mr. Elmer Ingalls, the tele
graph editor of the Eagle. To him the
very profound sympathy of many friends
goes out in his sad bereavement the loss
of a fond and exemplary mother.

It is confidently believed by some of the
member of the school board that the work
this year has been done exceptionally well.
Mr. C. S. Caldwell who had charge of the
work took great care to appoint men who
would do the work properly and who could
be depended upon in every way.
THE WARM WEATHER.
The few drops of rain in the early part
of last evening were quite welcome.mainly
because they indicated a cool strata of air
in the vicinity. Nothing but the favora
ble location of Wichita prevented the
same category of accidents from sun stroke
reported elsewhere during the last few
days. The mercury has shown an affinity
for 100 in the shade but the fresh breezes
have kept it from being too oppressive.
Ono of the men employed in building the
street car track on Mam street was com
pelled to quit work j'esterday on account
of the heat but his physician says he is not
seriously afflicted. Several men who have
been exposed to tho snn a good deal have
suffered slightly but no serious cases have
been reported. A number of horses havo
suffered to some extent and a fine animal
owned and driven by Mr. M. A. McKenzio
died from the effects of over heating after
a long drive. Rain is expected and indi

WILL PEOBABLT DOUBLE CAPACITY
The Storage Block Being Erected by Joan Ex
ton to be Completed Soon and
Increased in Size.
The excavation was completed yesterday
for the building being erected on Fifth
avenue near Douglas by Mr. John Exton,
to be used as storage room for general
merchandise. The foundation work will
commence today. The first story will be
of stone and the walls of the second brick.
The building will be thirty-four by one
hundred and sixty feet, and as estimated
will be completed within six weeks.
Mr. Exton stated yesterday that in all
probability soon as the building was
completed he would construct another
building of the same size adjoining on the
north to be used for the same purpose. He
sa3's he is increasing his investments in
buildings in the city, feeling sure he is
making no mistake and after many months
traveling investigating other cities and
countries, he is better pleased with the
great southwest and Wichita than ever.
Shop lifting has become so prevalent of
late that the merchants have been com
pelled to keep a very strict watch on their
goods and customers. People, one would
suppose above suspicion, have developed a
kleptomaniac weakness that makes them
a terror to the shop keeper. These little
things the merchants have stood with
patience but when it comes to a regu
lar organized company of females
such as pilfered from Munson &
McNamara yesterday forbearance ceases
to be a virtue. This firm has
employed detectives to watch the store and
intends to prosecute all pilferers.regardless
of whom they may be, to the full extent
of the law.
Yesterday afternoon Mrs. Bailey went to
the store of Innes & Ross and procured as
many empty boxes as she could. Taking
them with her, she met her daughter-in-law
and little girl at Munson & Mc
Namara's, where a good collection of boot
was stored in the boxes. Mr. McNamara
suspected that they had more boxes
than they needed and his suspicions
were strengthened when his polite offer to
wrap them up and deliver them was re
jected. He managed to get possession of
one of. the boxes, however, and the first
article he found was a piece of gingham
with Munson & McNamara's private mark
that had not been purchased. The police
was called in and Mrs. Bailey and her two
daughters were brought to trial. It was
then learned that the boxes were all full of
goods, in all valued at about $4.
Mrs. Bailey denied the charge
and said the boxes belonged to
a lady who had given them to her to
keep. She did not say who lady was and
the story did not have much weight with
Judge Museller. The daughter-in-law
seemed inclined to tell the truth and said
that she took two parcels without having
paid for them and, although she did not
know it for a fact, believed the rest had
been taken by Mrs. Baily in the same
way. The little girl testified that she did
not take anything and did not know who
put the goods in the boxes. She also
said she was with her mother all
the time and saw no goods taken except
two small bundles that seemed to havo
boen paid for. This story sounded as if
she had learned it by heart. On the re
quest of the county attorney the prosecu
tion was withdrawn as to the daughter-in-law
and the little girl. In consideration
of their youth and'the fact that they were
evidently under the dominance of Mrs.
Baily such a course seemed expedient.
Mrs. Baily continued to deny the charge
and urged that she had a sick child at
homo but the court although unwilling to
send her to jail 'could not see any way out
of it. He therefore sentenced her to thirty
days in jail and assessed her $1 and the
costs of the action.
A NIGHT TOR SUCKERS.
Some of the local sports and admirers of
fistic performances tramped the streets a
little nervous yesterday. They were act
ing just a little more concerned than in
common, every day life, the result of ex
pectations. It proved to be another case
of expectation being more interesting than
the reality. A fight was on hand. It was,
of course, going to be a good one. Thero
was no doubt abont it. The sluggers were
in trim. While neither one was John L.,
yet it was quite likely one or both were
relatives of tho famous pugilist. Shortly
after the evidences of daylight had disap
peared a few hack loads and carriages
were seen going north and after wandering
around through alleys, sunflowers, frog
ponds, encountering irate property owners
and bull dogs together with a few slices of
Chisholm creek to allay thirst, owing on
the part of some, to a lack
of deliberation, the alleged scene of
hostilities for financhil purposes was
reached. The word was gained there that
the affair was to occur m another part of
the county. It was some more traveling,
with attempts to conceal anything unus
unl, and shortly before midnight the
longed for spot was reached. Tho lights
adjusted and rope stretched, not around
any one's neck, but around posts, and
things commenced to put on a business
like appearance. Everything was booming
until tho sluggers arrived. Ono looked
like he had been living on half rations for
the last ten years and his stomach was out
of order, and the other was suggestive of
having a lop-sided liver. It was quite cer
tain by this time that very little blood would
ba seen, and to add to the embarrassment
Sheriff Cone and City Marshal Bur
rows arrived with assistants. They
seemed to be as much disappointed as
the other spectators. The fighters were
introduced as Sidney Smith, of Memphis,
and Tom Fitzgerald, of Nashville, and
everybody believed the information was
correct. But the collection had been taken
by this time from tho fellows behind the
ropes who were not eagerly crowding up
very close. The preliminary arrangements
were made, and in order to prevent cruelty
to animals their upper points were orna
mented with big, fat, well rounded cloves.
It seemed to be the general opinion that
the precaution was entirely unnecessary
even to prevent any violation of law. But
the gloves were put on whether for pre
caution or what not, and they went at each
other something on the grasshopper style.
After disturbing the atmosphere to some
extent Smith made a mistake; Fitz
gerald lost about two drops of
blood from the promontory on his
face. At the end of the supposed
third or fourth round according to the
timers, Fitzgerald concluded that he had
.worked enough for his part of the purse
and while his seconds had no sponge to
throw up they made the fact known that
their man had been done up. He soon
after retired and proceeded to exhibit a
full line of boarding house groceries. This
was the closing scene of the midnight en
tertainment and the spectators com
menced to figure on getting back into
Kansas. As they proceeded on their trip
they reached the rain belt or where it had
recently rained. No one would take unto
himself the censure of having induced
himself to go but the blame was with the

The Chisholm creek arbitration board
will meet this morning resuming the in
vestigation. The city will commence pre
senting its evidence to get at the value of
the water power of Chisholm creek to the
Hydraulic Avenue Milling company.
Mr. David Grisman was in the city yes
terday on his way to Conway Springs. He
says that the wheat crop in that vicinity is
simply wonderful and the acreage the
largest ever known. Corn is suffering a
great deal in that particular vicinity as no
rain has fallen for more than four weeks.
Mr. O. F. Casteen, treasurer of Harper
county, spent yesterday in the city calling
on friends and looking after business mat
ters. He reports his section of the state
getting along nicely; an abundance of
wheat and oats, corn prospects good and
live stock in good condition.
Ex-President Oliver goes to Washington
City where he has been summoned before
the interstate commission to give his ex
perience and views touching grain and

Texas and the gulf.
Amongst the various attractions of the
Fourth of July will be a base ball game,
Greeco-Roman wrestling match and a foot
race match at the base ball park. Wichita
will cross bats with the Arkansas City
team for a purse of $100. The wrestling
will be open to the state and the contest
will award $200 to the winner. The foot
race is for one hundred yards, open to local
sprinters, with $25 hanging on the wire.
The sports will commence promptly at 2
o'clock and cars will be run to accommo
date all comers.
Joseph Costello and George Russell spent
last Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sun
day on a buggy tour. They traveled only
by moonlight and visited the towns of
Mulvane, Pelle Plaine, Udall, Wellington,
Winfleld and Oxford, meeting friends fre
quently. They say 'tis funny to stop at
midnight and eat one's evening "snack"
with harvesting farmers instead of at the
noon hour. Though boys, they have their
opinions, which are that "craps are fine"

Mr. R. C. Thompson, of Arcade, F. Y.,
arrived yesday on a prospecting trip. He
says he has not been in Kansas since the
grasshopper year and he wanted to see the
state at the time when it was on dress
parade. He was advised to come here most
any time and about now especially, and is
incline to think the state is certainly on
dress parade about this time. He intends
to spend several days in Southern Kansas
and as he is open to argument and should
the west to his mind offer more induce-
menrs for making investments than the
east, he may become financially interested
in the great west.
"The Gypsy Queen," or "Flower3 of the
Forest," will bo presented for the first timo
in this city at the Crawford Grand on
Wednesday evening, July 2. The box office
opened yesterday and a large advance sale
was the result. Everyone should attend,
not only for the charitable cause to which
the proceeds go, "tho Wichita city hos
pital," but to see a good attraction pre
sented by twenty of Wichita's selected
artists. Twelve beautiful young ladies
will represent a grand camp scene and
gypsy dance. Tho drama in three acts
abounds in romance, pathos, comedy and
entertaining choruses, and a few pleasing
specialties will be introduced. The play
tells a beautiful story of gypsy life and the
romantic career of a gypsy queen. The
cast have spared neither pains nor time in
rehearsing and preparing elaborate cos
tumes. Good seats may yet be had by se
curing this morning. You need have no
fear of suffering with the heat however
warm it may be, as the house will be thor
oughly ventilated and a largo quantity of
ice will be distributed through it. Every
one is expected to come and encourage
homo talent efforts, when such a good
cause is to be benefited.

general, Taczanowski,"' billeted 500 $i his
troops upon us, and although our family
had in no wise participated in thereToIt, to
refuse levymeant expatriation. Therefore
my father acquiesced. Against" these 500
troops Russia Rent'S,700iinentand sixty
cannon. Thojthattle was"short and de
cisive, resujltingia the-killlhg antLcaptur
ing of the whole 500. Six horses from our
stables that had beeh'pressed into service
were killed and two ofour men who .were
driving. Tho 'third, man- was whipped
nearljMo death after the capture and then
bayoneted. Z-" "'
I was taken prisoner, and soon set out
with hundreds Of " othersianour way to Si
beria. Think of .A. journey of over-3,000
milaa-on foot,"roquiring thirteen" months,
with heavy chains on 'each ankle and
chained by the Wrist to-another in.Rjgang
of 1001 That Lithe-way we made -the trip,
most of the time' tho weather being bitterly
cold, with tho meanest kind of clothing,
and only allowed seven' copecks, less than
five cents, a day for food. At night .Wo
slept in etapes long, low, logpr stone sheds
erected every ten- miles along tho way,
more often without1 fire than with it, al
ways hungry, always cold, and always in
pain from, tho galling chains.
At last, after thirteen months of misery ,,
wo arrived at the end of our journey to en
counter worse misery stilL I was ,set to
work in fthe quicksilver mines. Three
months isas long as any human being can
stand it to work in thoso mines. Manydio
in tho mines and'many soon after leaving
them. Tho fumes of tho mercury rot the
bones, loosen.the teeths and leave the man
a total wreck. When I'had partly regained
my health after' this experience I with
others was set to digging holes in the
ground. Tho holes were not designed for
any use whatever, but were dug just to
keep us at work, and it was while thus en
gaged that I received my first whipping. I
Was too weak to smooth tho side of tho
hole as nicely as the officer wanted it, and
simply told him so.
For that I was taken to tho whipping
bench, laid on my fsvee and fastened down
by three thongs, one of which was passed
over the nock, one over the body and ono
over tho legs, so arranged that a, man can
not mako the least movement. I received
eighty blows with the knout, and was two
months and a half in the hospital before I
could leavo my bed.
These knouta aro of stout leather, tho
points of the lashes being loaded with
lead, and a blow from them in tho hands
of a strong man is a.s,bad as a stroke from
a policeman's club. . I havo seen men killed
at the third 6troke. After my first' whip
ping I received another of 12" lashes for
calling a soldier a dog who! had bayoneted
a prisoner in cold blood. 1 was nearly kill
ed, anditr was almost a -year before I could
resume work. Tho scenes of brntality to
bo witnessed on all sides wero simply
frightful Tho killing of prisoners by tha
Boldiers was terrible. They wero under no
restraint whatever, and tho poor prisoners
wero killed for uttering" tho slightest word
in protest; against the most horrible mur
dets. Out of thof95,000 prisoners sent to Siberia
by tho Russian government at tho end of
tho rebellion I don't believe 5,000 ever got
back alive. And not one of them guilty of
a crime, but simply prisoners of war. But
if tho fate of tho men-was hard, that of tho
Vomen waa infinitely, more so. They wero
whipped with Btoufrvgads instead of tho
knout that is the only difference I was
ever able to observe. They wero whipped
and poisoned to death in the hospitals by
hundreds, and every public indecency
heaped upon them. Even their efforts at
suicide were laughed at as a joke.
I was'six years a prisoner in chains,
and sixyearsa prisoner under surveillance.
At tho end of six years I was obliged to
support mjBclfbut was required to report
daily to ascertain officer. 1 supported my
self by" making cigarettes, and then after
thirteen years was given a passport back
to Poland. Ajman cannot travel half a
mile in Russia without a passport. I
begged my way from town to town, and
when about half way back received norno
money from my sister. On reaching homo
I found an order from the czar requiring
me to quit Poland within twenty-four
hours on pain of death. I had Just time
to marry tho girl I was betrothed to and
hurried away to Cracow, thence to Ant
werp, where a Polish friend assisted me to
America. I have'been here tea years, and
although I am very poor nothing on earth
would induce me to leave American MiL
