THAT SUjK. WOMAN.
Yesterday a warrant was issued in Squire
Mosley's court for the arrest of Maggie J.
Palmer on a charge of embezzlement, Ella
Sipo being the complainant. The com
plaint sets forth that the defendant fraudu
lently obtained money from the com
plainant to the amount of $100 which she
the defendant, had appropriated to her
own uses. Miss Palmer's whereabouts
were known to be in Medicine Lodge and
Deputy Ratlifl! served the war
rant in that place last eve
ning. Some time ago tho EAGLE
made reference o some of her transactions
in dealing with parties having silk to sell
and no explanation was vouchsafed al
though one was invited.
Miss Palmer was the moving spirit in
the Southern Kansas Silk Association
whose object was the formation of a silk
colony. The preliminary steps towards
tho formation of this colony have been
taken and much of the money paid in. The
office has since been closed here and
Miss Palmer's apparent coolness with
regard to tho colony has given rise
suspicions on the part of the colonists and
is the foundation of the present charge.
Several different properties were leased
for the purpose ot starting the colonists in
the work of actual silk raising but some
excuse has been found to cancel these
agreements and as yet she has taken no
definite or satisfactory steps. Aside from
this phase of her work she would accept
silk to sell on commission and it is assert
ed that very unsatisfactory returns were
made of these sales.
The friends of Miss Palmer in this city
say that Miss Palmer will be able to ex
plain everything in a satisfactory manner
and will be able to account for every cent
of money in her possession. They allege
that certain difficulties have been encoun
tered which have delayed her in the forma
tion of the colony and that on her return
the matters will all be clared up.
Last night the police was notified by
telegram of a couple of runaway boys
from Herrington, Kansas. According to
the instructions of the telegram Officer
Wood met the Rock Island train and
found no difficulty in locating the boys.
They were taken to the station where they
will be held until the arrival of their
father who is expected here early this
morning. They gave their names as Weld
on Knitzly and Rodda Cloud aged respect
ively twelve and sixteen. Kintzly's
father is the express agent at Herrington
audit is he who will likely come after the
runaways. Cloud had $S3 on his person
which had been given to him by Kintzly
and he said that ho was offered 25 to ac
company him. Kintzly said the amonnt
was originally $9o but they had spent $10
in an outfit and for railway tickets, 'lhe
older of the two boys seemed to have no
particular object in running away ex
cept to accompany his young friend.
Kintzly did not have any very
definite object in view either
beyond a Quixotic thirst for adventure.
The plan was rather vague but the nation
as they termed it was tho goal of their
ambition where they hoped to achieve
fame and fortune on the dime novel order.
Their arrest last night was a severe blow
to their hopes and the ignominy of such
an unexpected defeat weighed heavily on
their minds. Kintzly said the monev was
his nmi. that he had saved it from time to
time and had only given it to his father for
Their only solicitude last night was how
they could find on opportunity to continue
their journey and revive the thrilling
scenes of early days such as they bad read
Doubtless on their return home the boys
will be taught to see the error of their
ways according to the methods in vogue
in early days.
WOXDERFCL, TO HIM.
F. M. Worrall, a representative of the
"Iron Age" who was in the city yesterday,
called on the Eagle. Mr. W. said he had
been spending the summer in Colorado,
Nebraska, Kansas and Texas in the inter
est of the Iron Age and the interests and
iron manufacturers. In speaking of the
times and towns in the west he said that
Wichita was the greatest surprise he had
struck. He said it was no use to talk
about parrallel towns to Wichita in the
west for they did not exist. And taking
the character of the public improvements
and cost he said he knew of no city east or
west of twenty-five thousand, old or young
which could show such a court house,
such a city hall, such a Y. M. C. A. build
ing and so many fine public school build-
ings. "You must be," he remarked, "a
wonderfully wealthy and wonderfully en
terprising people." He said he never saw
so many fine streets with such costly
modern pavements in so young a city, nor
a city of twenty-five thousand people, with
sixty-five miles of completed sewers. And
then he went back to the subject of the
county and city buildings. There is but
To the Editor of tho Eagle.
I notice in the last few days two articles
urging the consolidation of the hospitals
in this city. There is no reason why the
Wichita and City hospitals should not, but
there are several reasons why they should
be consolidated. For several years the
Benevolent Home, now known as the
Wichita hospital, was the only institution
of the kind in the city. Then the St.
Francis was established and is supported
mainly by the Catholic church. Then
came the City hospital. The Wich
ita and City hospitals were started and
have been controlled by women belonging
to the different churches of the city, and
fire entirely non-sectarian. In starting and
conducting these institutions, they have
done a good and noble work. Their having
received aid from the city and county
ought not to take from them any praise
that is their due.
But the time has come when these two
hospitals should be united. The fact that
the Wichita is attended by alopathy and
the city by homeopathic physicians should
not be allowed to stand in the way,
as in the consolidation the rights and
privileges of the two schools could be sat
isfactorily arranged. If it is desired that
the consolidated institution be retained by
the ladies, and as they havo originated and
have so well conducted the two, they
ought not to be ignored, each board as it
now exists could say who of its members
should be members of the new board, lim
iting the number so as not to make it too
The city has been giving to each of
these hospitals $900 a year. The county
has been giving to each 400 a year, mak
ing to the two $2,600 a year from the city
and county. One has been paying $900 a
year rent, the other -5400. Thus one-half
of the allowance from the city and county
has gone for the one item of rent. There
are now two sets of house officers to pay
and two houses to heat. The case stands
about this way:
City and county to the two hos
pitals S 2,600
Rent for two houses $1,300
Fuel for two houses 200
Matrons for two houses (500
Cooks for two houses 210 2.&10
Thus leaving for all other purposes only
$260 out of the public allowance. The rest
of the expenses to be made up by private
subscriptions and donations. The sub
subscriptious and donations havo fallen off
very much during the past year, caused
by the hard times.
One hospital under the control of an ef
ficent and experienced superintendent and
matron would do all the work done by the
two, quite as effectually and with but one
rent to pay, one house to heat, and ono set
of employes to pay, at very much less ex
pense. The building now used by either
hospital would bo large enough for the
consolidated hospital and is as well adapt
ed for the purposes as any building not
specially built for the purpose,
Bta headlines in the Eac-le announce
that'Wichita is "once more a winner." A
"bis jobbing house" says it is coming.
The jobbing house that conies shrieking
into a town asking for a bonus is like the
big circus when it gets all the money it
can it folds its tents and steals away.
That is all to true as a rule. But tho
"big jobbing houso" to which the Champ
ion alludes asked no bonus, concession or
advantage. The truth is, outside of the
principals and their lawyer, nobody in
Wichita ever heard a whisper of tho mat
ter until tho lease for the building had
been nogotiated for and secured. The
only bonus the firm wanted consisted of
the superior advantages presented by the
city for the jobbing trade, advantages of
location, advantages of railway facilities
and advantage of prestige as the only job
bing point within two hundred miles.
The Champion's attention is called to the
half-page list of wholesaling and manu
facturing concerns boasted by Wichita
and found elsewhere in this paper. That
list of itself and it is strictly correct as
far as it goes is evidence enough that
Wichita as a jobbing point is witout a
rival so far as tho territory she is endeav
oring to serve is concerned.
THE COiLS TIGHTENING.
Some little time back reference was made
in the EAGLE to a Texas man, formerly a
resident of Wichita, who had appropriated
upwards of SG00 that was sent to him to
pay off a mortgage on certain lots in this
city. Tho reflection was rather broad
since a great many Wichita men have been
sojourning in Texas to their sorrow. The
gentleman who is the main victim is in
New York and claims to havo been de
frauded by tho same party in other ways.
The Wichita victim is not so
badly off having foreclosed on his
mortgage and is now in possession of the
property, which, of course, is worth the
money. Criminal proceedings will prob
ably be commenced in a few days when the
matter will get publicity in the courts.
This result can only be averted by the par
ty in question squaring things at once,
which it is renorted he is unable to do.
There is only one man in Wichita who
knows the party and refuses to give up the
name, but produces tho evidence of the
THE REPLRLICAN 1MU31ARIES.
According to announcement the Repub
lican primaries will be held this afternoon
between the hours of four and seven to
elect delegates to the county convention.
An effort has been made among the busi
ness men to be well represented and those
who ignore the primaries will have a poor
show to find fault later on.
The place of meeting in the various
wards will be the usual voting places.

South Main street.
Second ward Sternberg's former office
on Main street near Third.
Third ward Emporia ave livery bam.
Fourth ward Corner of Lawrence av

MARKET STREET PAVEMENT.
Alderman Schnitzler in speaking of pav
ing matters yesterday said he supposed
the Market street canal would receive at
tention pretty soon. In its present condi
tion the wheels of vehicles were liable to
be broken and at the same time the edge
of the pavement would suffer. As the
street had been relinquished by the street
car company with the silent consent of the
city the burden of paving would naturally
fall on the tax payers. -Is the property
had been once assessed there was no way
out of the difficulty except to have the im
provement made by the city at large.
There were several objections to this plan,
of course, but ihe legal objections would
be so purely technical they would not
stand, and any scheme was better than let
ting it alone as it is.

not had time yet to know if he was satis
fied with the present business field, but, be
that as it might, he was satisfied about the
future, and that was what he was banking
The talk of consolidating tho hospitals
has become general and it seems to be a
favorite topic of comment. The enemies
of the scheme are not saying much, but
they will be heard from in good time. A
prominent physician said that from a fair
standpoint there could be no objection to
it, but from a professional standpoint
there was one, which he thought, how
ever, could be over come. It would be
impracticable for different schools to oper
ate in the charity wards, but the physi
cians might consolidate into one school.
Which school might seem to be a ques
tion to outsiders, but professional men
knew how the fraternity is leaning and
tbis idea of consolidation would likely
develop a feeling that that is growing in

The case will be heard Friday on a charge
of disturbing the peace. The case of Al
gaier occupied the most of the day in Jus

charged with embezzlement and the point
at issue is, whether he has a partner or
agent authorized to retain funds collected
or simply an employee, and therefore guil
ty of a defalcation. The court took the
matter under advisement at its conclusion.

Concerning William O'Connor's defeat
by Stonsbury, the Australian, in their re
cent scull race for the world's champion
ship, many prominent oarsmen ara of tho
opinion that O'Connor could not havo
been at his best, owing to the feeling of un
certainty he has had since his arrival in
Australia concerning a fair match. O'Con
nor has said that there had been moro
dickering and small play in tho Antipodes
in regard to any one rowing him than ho
had ever before soen.
Professor Galton, the celebrated swim
ming instructor of Dublin, Ireland, advises
people who are teaching others to swim to
sit in a punt or on a rock with a stout stick
10 or 15 feet in length, at the end of which
is a cord with 4 feet or so of loops. Tho
learner puts himself into'tho loops, and the
teacher play3 him as a fisherman would
play a fish in water that is well out of his
depth, giving him just enough support to
keep him up. After a few lessons many
boys require no support at all, and swim
with the rope dangling slack about them.
They can then shift for themselves.
Babies In rublic.
When one sees daily, as ono does, the
criminal carelessness and ignorance with
which the babies of the world are treated
by their mothers, ono wonders that the
race has ever managed to live through its
teething period. One awful hot day a
woman got into a crowded elevated car
with a small baby in her arms. Of course
somebody gave her a scat, and she took it,
holding tho baby down across her knoes. In
spite of the day tho little thing had a veil
over its face though just why thoro
should always bo a fixed and eternal re
lationship between veils and babies is one
of the marvels of creation. And it had on
not only a veil, but a heavy wadded coat as
well, and thoro it lay in all those wrappings
on its mother's lap, with a porspiring mass
of humanity close around it, too low for a
breath of fresh air, and It gaspod and
panted while that mother sat up and
thought herself a kindly disposed and
Christian woman, no doubt. What the
baby should have done to havo done itsell
credit was to havo died right then and
there. A proper spirited baby would.

One morning recently Mrs. Charles Pen
nypackex completed her arrangements for
a trip to Yisifcher son in Chicago, and went
to Philadelphia to secure her place on the
train. Station Agent McMlchacl, of West
Chester, had at her request telegraphed to
PflUadelphia tho previous evening before 0
o'clock to have reserved for her a berth In
tho middle section on the Ne-sv York and
Chicago limited express, so Kre. Penny-
packer, on reaching the Brood 6trcot ate.- .
tion, went to tho ticket agent and asked '
for her ticket to Chicago on the iimlteu.
Shcwus greatly surprised -when tho ticket
agent Raid; "I cant reil you a-ticket for
ttat train. Every jJoco is. taken, and you'll
have to wait until to-morrow." In vain
Bhe told him she had telegraphed tho pre
vious evening and secured her berth; tho
agent had received ao such moseago, the
record waa'not on hi books, and no Kcctlon
had been saved. Mrs. Pennypackerhad no
idea of giving up yot, bo erro ivenMo tho
Pullman office, stated her esse, and found
that there, too, no mcesago had been re
ceived from West Chester, and there
seemed to bo no way by -which ahe could
secure her rights and go her -way that day.
But this plucky West Chcstcriady was
not yet discouraged, and determined to aift
tho matter to Ita source that tho blame
might rest on the proper shoulders. Bo re
turning to tho ticket office she inquired for
the telegraph office, and being directed to
the third floor she ascended to it, ac
companied by tho friend with whom, she
had gono to the city. There sbo asked
again if Mr. McMichael's incasogo ,of tho
previous evening had bean received, and
again sho was given a nopprtlvo reply by
the young man after he had examined his
"Let me boo your book, ;tfoaso," said
Mrs. Pennypacker. A woman can always
do things hotter than a man. The opera

lady was not slow in finding the following
record: "Save lower berth, mlddlo Bection,
on New York and Chicago limited to-morrow
for Mrs. Charles IL Pennypacker,

ing nhown tho discovery to the operator,
she requestod him to give her a copy of tho
same. The younx man did ro, and thus
for tho first time the message from West
Chester left the room In which it had been
Mrs. Pennypacker curried it down to the

Further parley and a refusal of a berth in
