THE CRACKER FACTORx.
The recent sale of the cracker factory to
St. Louis parties caused considerable com
ment on the streets, and in connection
with this bit of news a rumor got afloat
that it was purchased by the trust and
that as a matter of fact it would be closed.
The rumor got started too late to weigh
very heavy for the danger of such a thing
had passed previous to the sale referred to.
There are in every city a number who want
nothing said in the papers for tear of
offending some buga-boo, but the better
element want the facts, being willing to
abide by them, and here goes.
The cracker combination was formed
about a year ago in New York and is
known as the New York Biscuit company.
It would be a difficult matter to say who
is in it but it is not so difficult to
say who is not. It is authorita
tively stated that theDiarnond Match
company was the originator of the idea
and that Armour, Pullman. Standard Oil
company and several other large concerns
are interested in it. They bought out
several large factories, amongst them F.
A. Kennedy, of Chicago, and the largest
factories in the east. Cash offers were
made then for smaller factories and the
plan at once became apparent. A low
price would be offered for all the factories
in the west and would naturally be ac
cepted, for otherwise their trade would be
ruined. This combination could afford to
come in their territory and sell goods
away below living prices. While the con
ditions were as stated the Garneau's, of St.
Louis, were figuring on the purchase of
the Wichita cracker factory, but here wa?
a prospect that was not promising and
until they could see some way out of it
it seemed prudent to wait. Mr. Garneau,
Sr., is one of the oldest manufacturers of
crackers in the west, owning large and
successful factories in St. Louis and other
points. They represent an immense capital
but no one firm could hope to successfully
fight the New York Biscuit Co., whose in
tentions were so apparent. At this time
all of the western factories bejran to take
in the situation and it was evident that
their only safety was in combination. Ac
cordingly the American Biscuit and Man
ufacturing company was formed and the
understanding was that the Wichita fac
tory should be taken in, and it was with
this understanding that Mr. Garneau
bought it. The sale was consummated
about a month ago and it will be accepted
by the American Biscuit and Manufactur
ing company during the next thirty days,
after which the factory will be run to its
The following circular will be issued by
Mr. Garneau to the trade and gives a gen
eral idea of the plan that has been adopted
by the western people for their protection:
"The plant and business of the Wichita
Cracker company has been purchased by
the American Biscuit and Manufacturing
company. In making this announcement,
the proprietors of the Wichita Cracker
compan- feel that a brief explanation re
garding the change of ownership is due
from them to their many friends, both cus
tomers and consumers, who have so gener
ously favored them in the past.
"The American Biscuit and Manufact
uring company is regularly incorporated
under the laws of the state of Illinois, with
a capital of ?10,000,000. Its officers are J.
L. Loose, president: D. F. Bremmer, first
vice president; L. D. Dozier, second vice
president; W. W. Shaw, Treasurer; H. F.
Vories, secretary. Its headquarters are in
Chicago, and it has branches in every large
city of the northwest, west and south.
All of these factories will be operated in
future, as they have been in the past, by
men of long experience in their line of
business, who have developed their present
large successful concerns from very small
The company has carefully estimated
that with its present improved facilities
for manufacturing and selling goods, and
the decreased expense of same, a better
article can he offered for less money than
heretofore and still leave a fair margin for
the producer; in other words, the com
pany proposes to give the consumer the
benefit of such measures of economy as it
may introduce into the manner of con
ducting its business in the future. It
appreciates thoroughly that the interest of
consumers in the matter is to have the
best goods at reasonable prices, and its
earnest endenvor will be to follow this
principle in its fullest me ining.
In conclusion we may add that the new
corporation is a western enterprise, owned
by western manufacturers and operated by
western money, and it confidently asks the
patronage of the western public
It is not to be supposed that the New
York company will enter into any fight at
present for the western trade with a com
bination that is as strong as their own,
nor is it to be supposed that the western
dealer will forget the situation and where
his interests lie. The prices are likely to
remain unchanged, as the American com
pany does not propose to lose any money
until a tight is made on them, when, if
necessary, the millions will go.
The management of the Wichita factory
will devolve upon Mr. James Garneau,
who has come to Wichito with his family
and intends to make his future home here.
In speaking of the matter, Mr. Garneau
said the factory thus far had been a great
success, and if with their experience and
facilities they could not extend the busi
ness no one would be more surprised than
themselves. The product of the factory,
he says, will rival any of the eastern
crackers, and will include everything in
AN K-NCOURAGLNG REPORT.
Mr. C. H. Morehouse has been spending
a few days in Barton and Stafford coun
ties, this state, in the interest of the Bun
nell & Eno Investment company, ami
from facts herewith given the condition of
the farmers in that section is highly
satisfactory. They have more mone and
better times than ever before, owing to
their having a good crop of wheat follow
ing the excellent crops of last year. Many
of the farmers have money to loan to their
neighbors and to place in the banks. The
banks at Ellinwood, a small place, having
deposits belonging to the farmers to the
amount of $6U0OcC illustrates the situation.
Ijind is rising in value and every quarter
offered for rent is quickly taken.
Their business there has been extensive
and of all their loans only two are likely
to give them any trouble for interest,
which is n splendid showing. Mr. More
house in traveling a hundred miles
through the country was not out of sight i
of the steam thresher and an immense
number of stacks of - wheat, mostly
headed, therefore containing much grain !
for the size of the ricks attest the wealth
yet to be realized. Wheat is selling for
SI cents and still rising so that the farmers
are in no hurry to market their crop. They
have much corn left from last year and
many fields of this year wiil produce
enouch to make considerable feed. Thev !
sow rye and allow their hogs to feed upon
it, furnishing them also swill made from (
com and shorts so that a small amount of
corn will fatten them when shut up. As a
pointer for farmers who complain some
times of cheap corn this is given: A man
at Seward bought last year 10,CO) bushels
of corn at 11 cents per bushel and now he j
is offered 51 cents per bushel, a profit of ;
$4,000 upon an investment of $1,100. All I
fanners are putting in a large crop of j
wheat. The passenger upon the railroad
does not get as accurateacooceptioB of the
situation as one who drives about the j
cottatry and takes time. In some sectroas
that had no rain from April 18 until after
harvest the wheat was fine and all of it is
above the standard in weight.

WORK FOR THE WAGON S HOI'S.
Bill Crouch, the expressman, and his
team got up a first class runaway on Mar
ket street last night, and the outfit was
making considerable time northward
when a tree barred further rapid progress
by overturning the wagon. Crouch stuck
to his lines like a little man and the un
tamed bronchos dragged him a distance of
thirty or forty yards before they were
stopped. The wagon is pretty nearly fit
for firewood, and Crouch will require a
considerable amount of plaster and several
bottles of lotion to heal his scars and
Colonel Walker Powell, a brother of
Major E. R. Powell, of this city, has been
honored by an advancement of which his
many friends in this city will be gratified
to learn. The following is from a Canadian
daily of recent date:
"Since the resignation of Major-General
Sir Frederick Middleton, late commander
of the Canadian militia. Colonel Walker
Powell, the adjutant-general, has been in
command. This gentleman has been con
nected with the Canadian militia for many
years. If the Canadian law requiring that
the commander of the militia shall be a
British army officer is repealed, as it is
likely to be next session, Colonel Powell
will probably be the first Canadian
appointed to the generalship. In ap
pearance the acting general is tall and
stout, with a soldierly bearing, a frank
open countenance, a tall forehead, and a
preposessing appearance. Colonel Powell
was born on the 20th of May, 1XJS. Was
first appointed an officer of the Norfolk
regiment of militia on Dec. 14th, 1S47. On
the 9th of August, 1S62. and before confed
eration he was appointed deputy adjutant
general for Upper Canada. On the 1st of
October, 1S?, Colonel Powell was made
depnty an jutant general for the Dominion,
and on the 25th of April, 1S75, he became
adjutant general. For more than 26 years,
therefore, Colonel Powell has been busy
at headquarters aiding in the development
of the existing militia system.
Owing to Colonel PowePs exertions a
complete set of regulations have been pre
pared to enable the militia to act as a sep
arate organization, the Imperial troops
having been withdrawn. In 1SS5 the re
sponsibility rested upon the shoulders of
Colonel Powell, as adjutant general, of
sending out troops to quell the half-breed
rebellion. At that time he was the only
staff officer at headquarters, and dis
charged his onerous duties with marked
ability, showing great judgment and a
perfect knowledge of the requirements of

placed as one of the heads is 36,7S3.
THE ST. EOITIS PLATFOUM.
Last evening, according to announce
ment, Farmer Jerry Simpson, the Alliance
nominee for congress in the Seventh con
gressional district, spoke at the Garfield
hall to a well filled house. The St. Louis
platform, that has been adopted by the
Alliance conventions generally, was taken
for a theme. He commenced by saying
that it looked like assurance for him to
come to the den of the prince but he had
come, nevertheless, to beard him in his
The meeting was called to order by Mr.
L. D. Lewellen, who made a brief speech
and presented the orator who opened his
address as already intimated. He reviewed
the different platforms adopted by other
parties and spoke at length of alleged
abuses growing out of the present financial
system, proposing as a remedy that the
government loan money direct to the
He accused the Republicans of insincer
ity in adopting the Dodge City platform
and criticised their position on the tariff
issue in the campaign of 1SSS from his
own standpoint and declared that they in
reality held the same views. He favored
the service pension law and accused the
Republicans of using the pension service
for political purposes. He stated as a mat
ter of fact that only about one sixth of the
soldiers of Kansas had received pensions.
The speaker condemned congress for pass
ing the present bill and characterized the
act a? a job in the interest of the silver
miners of the western states. This silver
question was a hobby with the speaker
and it was held up in a variety of lights in
order to suit the scheme that is to be
hatched out of rAe St. Lonis platform.
The ostensible object of the plans proposed
in regard to the silver bill was to create
better times for the farmer, but the
connection between the plan and
the result was not made clear
The speaker favored governmental con
trol of the railroads as the only assurance
of just rates for the products of the western
farms. He criticised the present legisla
tion on the subject as being in the interest
of the railroads, and made the point that
the excess in railroad rates in reality
came out of the producer and consumer.
As might be naturally expected he ex
horted the farmers to stand by the ticket,
claiming that it was their only relief from
their present difficulties and the ills re
sulting from the oppression of the rich- 1

PROSPECT FOR A. BAG FACTORY;.
Mr. W. A. Rose, of Leavenworth, was
in the city yesterday, having been drawn
hither by business connected with the
Leavenworth bag factory. Having con
cluded his business in a much more satis
factory manner than he had even antici
pated he was quite favorably impressed
with the city, and the manner of doing
business here. During the afternoon he
took a look around and made some dis
coveries that would be of interest to any
one engaged in the manufacture of bags.
Amongst other things he learned that
there were nearly one hundred millers
within a radius of fifty miles of this city
and that their trade would naturally
come here and be controlled by any
manufactory that was on the spot. Sever
al other points of equal interest came into
his mind and set him to thinking. He
said he was not prepared to talk, yet but
would take the subject home with him and
think over it there.
Those who know Mr. Rose say he is not
the man to spend any time thinking over
something that is not practical and invit
ing in a business sense. He put several
pertinent inquiries to Messrs. Ashton and
Ebert to which he received satisfactory
answers and said he had all the informa
tion that was necessary to enable him to
think the matter out.
On leaving he said he expected to return
again soon, having an interest in Wichita
that was quite new and unexpected.
From the Sedgwick Pantacraph.
The Sedgwick county Republicans did
the wise thing at their convention Satur
day afternoon, by placing in nomination
those good and faithful servants who have
served the good people of that county dur
ing the past two years. A more faithful
or better qualified set of officials have never
graced the offices of Sedgwick than those
re-nominated on Saturday. It was a
fitting compliment to worthy gentlemen
and efficient officials. That each and
every one of them will be elected there is
not a shadow of a doubt. They have a
peculiar faculty of making friends by the
hundred, and never lose one. Even their
most bitter political enemies admit they
have made splendid officials, and for that
reason do not feel inclined to fight to any
alarming extent. The Democrats and
Union Laborites will stand no show in
Sedgwick this fall.
From the Colwich Courier.
The ticket is a good one and the platform
npon which it rests cannot be bettered.
The Republican party of Sedgwick county
is in line and moving to victory. It has
chosen for public officers men vho occupy
an eminence as men of ability and honor,
men whose records are such that only a
change in conditions and surroundings
could make the records to be better than
they were in the past.
From the Marlon Record.
Judge C. Reed, so well ana ravorably
known in Marion, but now district judge
of the Wichita district, will spend a part
of his vacation at Chingawasa Springs.
A number of gentlemen met recently at
the Carey hotel for the purpose of organ
izing an insurance company to write
special hazards that are not covered by the
usual policies of insurance. It was only
intended as a preliminary meeting to as
certain the possibilities of a successful or
ganization. They will meet again prob
ably during the coming week at which
time a committee will be appointed to
canvass the city and see how big a list of
underwriters can be secured at home.
It is the intention to make it purely a
Wichita company if nossible and it prom
ises to be a profitable enterprise. At pres
ent no policy of insurance covers property
in litigation, which fact may be learned by
simply reading the printed matter on "any
policy of insurance. Thu reason of this is
that the courts have decided that property
in litigation changes the character of the
risk and it is so stipulated in the policy.
The principle- of the thing may be
easily seen by supposing an ex
treme case. As soon as property
owners get fhis idea in their
heads straight the projectors of this com
pany will probably find very little trouble
in organizing a strong company and get
ting all the risks to write that they care,
for. To make the matter clear a man
owns a mortgage on a property which may
be destroyed by fire. When his mortgage
is due he commences forclosure proceed
ings which may be continue;! indefinitely.
At that moment his policy of insurance is
void and he cannot collect in case of loss.
If the owner of the property is do
ing the insuring he naturally does
not care and the mortgagee can
not place the risk with any company.
In nine cases out of ten he supposes he ia
still insured and only awakes to the true
facts after a loss has occurred and he finds
he can not collect. The main business of
the proposed company will be to write just
such risks as these.
The best legal advice in the city has
been taken on the matter, and it appears
that the company will encounter no insur
mountable obstacles in this direction. The
capital and the details of the enterprise
have not been fully settled as yet and will
not likely be determined upon until after
a general meeting of the underwriters can

A NEW POLAR SCHEME.
Enjjlneer Dnnsford Proposes to BIo-w Up
the Korth Polo with Dynamite.
H. A. H. Dunsford, an English civil en
gineer, has issued a pamphlet in which he
discusses the question, "Did nature intend
the Arctic sea to be open and the cUmate
moderate? And is it possible to do by
means of dynamite what nature has unac
countably omitted to do?" "Were the ice
cap removed from the North Pole," says
the author, "tha two warn streams would
flow as thay do now; but, instead of be
cominghiUed as thuy do, they would flow
past the pole and southward as warn
streams. They would prevent the ice's re
forming, and do artray altogether with tho
excessive cold of the Arctic regions." It is
to this end that nature has been working
since the beginning of history.
We know from Csar and Livy that the
rivers of Gaul used ts freeze over in win
ter, and that Germany was a land of frozen
moraanea, Nineteen hundred years have
changed the clhnatic conditions of these
countries. From the records of the Hud
son Bay company we know that the winter
ou the shores of the great bay has grown
shorter at the rate of one day in ten year?,
so that the season during which the sea is
open for navigation is twenty days longer
now than it waa 2C0 yer ago.
Sir John Barrow noted in 1S15-1S that
the ice barrier on the eaut coast of Green
land began to break up, and he regarded it
as one of the most in3brtnt, though least
noticed erents in the history of the world.
Since that time the ico barrier has steadily
retreaUd northward, aad should it con
tinue to move toward tho pole it will
eventually leave a channel by which tho
Japan current can flow without hindrance
from Bearing Bea through to the Atlantic.
When this becomes possibla tho exist
ence of tbe-remaindercf the ice cap, thinks
Mr. Dunsford, will bo of short duration;
for when the open way is made the wide
belt of ccM water will disappear, aad the
warm currents rcachinir tho ice will solve
the problem. Mr. Dunjrford proposes to
aid nature hr its attempt to ojwn an Arctic
route by attacking the ico with dynamite;
the Arctic current would of coarse carry
the masses of ice southward. The greas
difficulty will be to open channel wide
enough for a warm trem that vfn not
lose all of its heat on tho way; the main
barrier would be the ice belt north and
northwest of Greenland. Of cour until
such a channel ia completely open it would
freeae over etry wintar, but Mr. Dunsford
t.h inb tha new ice woild bo Eaaooth aad
easfly traversed by do trains, o that 1 ur
faco or rabaerjrcd mines could bo laid:
then, winter being over, any desired eo
tion could be instantanecKMiy broken up.
The chesje proposed is Certainly a little
staggering, and one is soon lct when tfc
possible results are coatcmpbited. With a
reduction in aa aad temperature of th
Arctic current a paw of the Gulf Stream
may be deflected up Davi strait aad Baf
fin's bay, ratetia? tha warm waters of tho
Japan current ia the Arctic ocen. There
would ha fiwer iceberg in the north At
lantio and fewer storms; the temperatura
of the east coast of America would b
higher during tho winter and spring
months, and ear friends ia Boston would
bo no longer so miserable oa account of
their east winds. Who knows but the
shorts of the Arctic may yet be mad habit
able, thai greai nties may not spring up
on Hudson bay and at the mouth of the
Mackenzie- riTer, or that tuture generation
may not, by mesas of dynamite, raiso pine
