THE CORK 0RLB AND EOTTEN EGG
R. K. Vermillion. T. B. "Wall and II.
C. Sluss on Local and State
Affairs An Enthusias
Tho Republican meeting at the Garfield
last night was a grand success. When
Chairman of the County Central Commit
tee E. F. Allen, accompauied by Judge
Sluss. Judge Wall, R. R. Vermilion and
J. II. Mercer reached the stage they were
given an enthusiastic reception. The
crowd in size was as largo as the hall
would accommodate to the best advantage.
Chairman Allen presented as chairman
of the evening Mr. It. R. Vermilion, who
was received with applause. Mr. Ver
milion said the meeting was the purpose
of discussing the issues of the present cam
paign. From a comparison of platforms
and from a comparison of the tickets he
could not see why any Republican would
fail to support the ticket this year. The
opposition comes up this year as in almost
every other j'ear, in a slightly different
form, but is the same old Democratic
Judge Wtill being presented was received
with enthusiasm, and he said he had
thought he wasnot to speak, but to simply
accompany Judge Sluss and Mr. Vermilion
to the stage. But he could certainly say
he was a Republican, and he believed the
party could meet every exigency com
ing up from the people. The party
has tho statesmanship and genius to solve
all great principles in thf interest of the
American people. He could not consent
to leave the party because of some local
trouble. II id the state party declared for
resubmission he would have been a Re
publican still. Had tho county party fav
ored prohibition ho would have been a Re
publican still. The local issues should not
interfere with the great foundation of Ra
publicanism. The time would come when
Kansas would blossom as the rose and it
would bo as difficult to find a man who
had deserted the Republican party as it is
to find a man who sent a substitute to the
war. He woul 1 be glad to compare Lyman
U. Humphrey's administration to that of
Charles Robinson. It was a wonderful
thing that a man should loan money if he
was a Renublican, but Robinson hid been
at the head of a busted bank. The Demo
crats had a banker for treasurer on tho
state ticket. In the county Mathewson, a
banker, against George L. Douglass and
the representative candidate in the Eighty
third district by the Democrats a banker.
In tlie great Seventh Congressional dis
trict the opposition man is absolutely ob
scure, and ought to be. His record ex
plained why he was obscure. With such a
record he certainly ought to be allowed to
remain obscure. lie had too much confi
dence in the intelligence of tho people to
think for a moment that Simpson would
be elected. Certainly Sedgwick county
would remember its gallant soldier and
brilliant representative who is a candidate
The speaker quoted Robinson, when be
fore the Alliance at Topeka, said, "This
question of resubmission should he left in
the background." This was a statement
that should cause honest Resubmissionists
to hesitate before casting a vote for
hint. Tlie sneaker, referring to the
county ticket, was cloveily cleatt-d.
The record ot Douglass showed him true
to every interest in which tlie people were
Judge Sluss was received with enthusi
asm. Tho judce stated that in his cam
paign work ho had heard very little about
national issues. Everything was mainly
local. The chief question before the audi
ence was what would be best to Wichita
and Sedgwick county. Tho city and coun
ty inseparable, what benefits one benefits
the other. Reaching out further, tho in
terests of the eutire southwest in common.
The towns and counties in the groat south
west are becoming more and more inter
est eil commercially.
The local issues this year of more im
portance than whether or not free sugar
comes this year but is delayed until next.
There was but one way to get,
in tho future, free sugar and
free barbed wire fence and
that way is through the Republican party.
The time is coming when tho two precious
metals would be tho money of the people.
There was but one organization that
would accomplish this end. Tho speaker
referred to the fact that more had been
accomplished in the last six months in the
right line than by all the kicks ever made
by any organization in tho country.
Referring to local affairs the speaker de
nounced the rumors that anyone faction
was going to leave the local ticket. He
himself intended to take the whole thing.
Each ouo wanted to so act that he could
li o in Wichita comfortable mauy years
yet. Wichita should remember her
friends. The city had a friend in John J.
Ingalls and certainly Wichita would not
turn against him. The city would stand
out for him.
A voice What has Ingalls done for us?
Judge Sluss I don't know who you are.
I don't know where you come from but I
do know no man anywhere knows what
the man who aked that question has
done. This was greeted with cheers.
The voice I did not ask you what I did
but what Ingalls did?
Judge Sluss Any man in this broad
country who asks what Ingalls has done
writes himself an ass and I tonight have
not time to teach tho political alphabet.
The speaker then urged the support of
tho representative ticket which would sup
port Ingalls for the senate The distin
guished senator had secured many pen
sions for widows, in Wichita and Sedgwick
county ami lit the great state He had
also demonstrated that disloyalty was
Wichita wanted more than n friend in
the senate. Wichita wanted a Wichita
man in the council nnd who of Wichita
wanted any ono clso in the council. It
made no difference whether he was a polit
ical or personal friend, he was a
voice from Wichita and through him
would bo heard. Would any one
vote for another man who is without
honor in his own country and who has
been heard to say ho loved the flag of
Anarchy more than the fing of thi coun
try. The speaker advised the entire city
to throw aside everything, all bickerines
and come out and support James Hallo
well for congress. He himself was f6r
James Hallowell for he was the man.
The hot winds of the last few yoars had
caused the disturbance to rattle around
among the drygoods boxes of Medicine
Lodge and got Jerro Simpson. Xo one
could think earnestly for a mo
ment and go out on the hot winds
platform. The government warehouse
for money and corn theory could not de
ceive any one who would think earnestly
for a moment. The government railroad
purchase scheme was also handled in a
manner that showexl its rottenness. The
more rotten tho money was made the bet
ter it suited a certain class of parasites.
They wanted the money so arranged that
thy could pay off a $2,(W0 mortgage with
one buhol of corn. The forked-tongued
trumpeters of hot winds wanted this kind
of a thing. Issue money on corn, aud
monoy must be issued on wheat, auother
has "tateni," and "utters" must be let in;
also a chicken man of iufiuoace "A bis
eggs. Corn must stand in with eggs. Then
who would know when an egg was ripe
Abont this time the fellow with a voice
interferred and the judge replied: "I do
not want to argue the question with the
gentleman or the lady, which ever it is."
This time the ever present Walker gave
a shot and the judge replied, "another
rotten egg man heard from."
EX-GOVERNOR ROUINbON'S RECEPTION
Yesterday morning F.W.Bentley and T.
G. Fitch left for Eldorado to meet ex
Gov. Charles Robinson, en route to
Wichita from Ft. Scott. The Robinson
train pulled in at the Missouri Pacific
depot and the gubernatorial candidate
aside from the local committee was accom
panied by Mr. Dick Lindsay, representing
the Kansas City Times, who is making
the usual round up politieil reports of the
meetings. Mr. Robinson was escorted to
tho Carey and a half hour later reached
the board of trade where a public reception
was given. During the two hours a num
ber of the leading business men called, and
those who had not met the disguished
Kansan, were presented by Mr. Bentley or
Judge Glenn. The informal affair was a
pleasant one and there were considerable
political chat around the corners. Mr.
Robinson was called on at the Carey last
evening by a number of his friends. He
leaves this morning for Hutchinson where
he is billed for a speech tonight.
The I.ast Sad Kites Over the Remains or Fred
Jones An Explanation "Which .Makes
ills Death tho Result of an
The funeral services over the remains of
the late Fred Jones were held yesterday at
3 p. m., at the First Baptist church. There
was present a lnrge crowd composed of the
many friends of the unfortunate young
man, his father, F. B. Jones of Canon City,
Colo., and relatives in the city. The cere
mony was attended with more than the
Ma F. B. Jones, the father of the unfor
tunate boy is well known by a number of
the leading citizens who refer to him in a
most complimentary way. He has the
deepest sympathy of friends in his 6orrow.
Three years ago his wife, a most estimable
lady, died and Fred was the only child,
and to him, as would be quite natural, tho
father looked with ever watchful eire.
Just a few minutes before he
received the dispatch on Thursday,
evening last that his sou had died sudden
ly he read a letter from him which was
full of hope for the future, and stated he
was glad vacation had ended and school
commenced. He hoped he would, by the
time school closed, be able to be of some
assistance to his father.
Those most familinr with the family and
who knew Fred most intimately insist
with most earnest convictions that he
never committed suicide intentionally. He
was subject to fainting spells whicli come
on often from overexertion. He was much
attached to his dog and rope The latter
was frequently used as a lasso to catch the
dog, chickens or anything that attracted
the attention of a playtul boy. He would
often make swi-gs with the rope and to
attach himself in many ways. The expla
nation which alone is accepted by the ac
quaintances is that the boy was playing in
the out building with the rope as ho was
accustomed to, and in some way tho rope
slipped around his neck and while in this
position lie fainted. To those who were
acquainted with him, his pranks aud
every-day life, tins is the only explanation
which they will accept as coming anyways
near being correct.
Dr. Stevenson ordered the schools closed
in time to allow teacher and pupils to at
tend the funeral services yesterdHy. Many
of them availed themselves of the oppor
tunity nnd nearly all the playmates of tho
deceased were present.
Lehman it Huggins, who havo secured
tho Miller block on Water street near First
street, to engage in the wholesale grocery
business are gutting their stock in ami
within a few weeks will be reatly for busi
ness. Mr. C. R. Miller who owns the
building is liavinu a Mitchell elevator put
in to be furnished power by a ten horse
electric elevator. The motor is onroute
now and will be read for business soon.
They will get thoir power from the elec
tric railway Co.
Some other business establishments in
the city are figuring on using electric pow
er for elevators and will probably ue it as
soon as the railway's central station is
completed and is able to furnish power.
Hon. J. Ralph Burton spent a few hours
in the city yesterday, being enroute from
Medicine Lodge to Abilene, his home. He
has not been in Wichita for three venrs
aud having walked up to the hotel from
one of tho depots, his first exclamation
was, "Well, how people do lie " When
asked for a retison for the sudden ebullition
he went on to say that he had heard a
thousand times that Wichita had not been
holding her own, while upon the contrary
a ten minutes' walk had convinced him
that there was not only more life and busi
ness than ever before but evidence of pros
perity on every hand, nnd, further, that it
is the cleanest and most attractive city lu

The business of the convention became
too cumbersome to be transacted without
additional force at the secretary's desk
and Rev. J. A. Lawrence was elected as
Rev. J. A. Bright being present, at the
request of the convention, explained the
difference between the work of
the State Sabbath school associa
tion and the American Sabbath
union; he said that all funds raised by the
Sabbath schools of this county for the
Sedgwick County Sunday School associa
tion are used for the purpose of building
up and organizing Sabbath schools in this
state. He spoke of the unorganized con
dition of Sabbath school work being large
ly due to the absence of Rev. Mr. Arm
strong, who was actively engaged in work
ing throughout the county last year, but
absent this year. Tho convention recom
mends that every school in the county
elect one or more delegates, and impress
upon such delegates the necessity of at
tending tho convention to be held nt Em
poria, Kan., the 12th day of May, next.
The county executive committee was in
structed to apportion among the several
schools of the county the amount assessed
against Sedgwick county for the state
work, and to notify each school of the
ainouut assessed to them.
Rev. W. S. Seabrook opened the discus
sion of the question, "Difficulties and how
to Meet Them." He spoke earnestly. The
discussion was participated in by Brothers
Little, Hore, Dobbin, Sister Keys and
Brother Bright, the state secretary, dis
cussed how to make township conventions
beneficial. From what he had to say it
was apparent that these township conven
tions are capable of doing great good m
stiring up enthusiasm in the work and
strengthening the workers.
The afternoon session was opened by
Bro. S. L. Shane, who conducted the de
votional exercises. Bro. De Groff, the
superintendent of the Rocky Mountain
district of tlie American Sunday School
union, spoke on local mission work. He
said there was no command in the Bible
to people to go and get the Bible, but those
who have the Bible are commanded to go
and take the Bible toothers. That we
should work at home and not want to go
away into foreign fields while the fields tit
home are ready for the harvests. He gave
a review of Setlgwick county work.
Rev. R. L. March gave a general idea of
how to conduct a Sunday school teachers'
meeting. We ought to have a con
nected idea of Biblical history to
understand why all the evangelists
did suite all the things they knew
but that all the writings of the several
gospel writers taken together gives a his
tory of Jesus, and fix in our minds the
several dat . in their chronological order
would get an idea of the character and
of the people who lived in tho days of
Christ, the immediate purpose is to get
Bible knowledge. The meeting should be
led by the best informed person in the
school and ho must hold his meeting in
hand. A successful teachers' meeting in
sures a successful Sundaj school.
Dr. Groff The teachers' meeting is not
the place to study the Bible but to learn
how to teach to exchange ideas.
W. E. Stanley Every teacher should
have a good teacher's Bible and regular
time to study. Net at the teachers' meet
ing; should use every help at hand.
Rev. J. A. Bright introduced Geo. R.
Bourne, of Hutchinson, chairman of state
committee. He said tho president of a
county convention should not be a pastor
3 o'clock for the duscussion of important
or superintendent of a Sunday school.
He should have a horse and buggy.
These county workers aro few; they
don't grow on bushes; they arc
made by the Father. They should go out
into the townships and visit the Sabbath
school every Sunday.
Choose your men
and take them along and take your own
program with you and you will fill every
body full of life and zeal. They will all
le happy aud if this is done the next yenr
this church will not hold your convention.
The ouestiou box was then opened and
the remainder of the afternoon session was
spent in answering the questions asked by
persons desiring information on matters
of interest in handling Sabbath school
work, and in the selection of officers for
the coining year. The committee on nom
inations presented the following report:
For president, James Allison; vice presi
dent, Mrs. Lydia Shepherd; secretary, J.
C. Sefton, treasurer, W. A. Wiht.
Executive committee A. W. Slckner,
E. D. Shrears, Lydiu Shepherd, Wichita;
H. C. Warner of Bainesvillo.
Report was adopted.
The treasurer reported collected at this
meeting, $25.72; expended, $0.70; balance
on hand, $10.02.
Mr. South, of the First Baptist church,
conducted the devotional exercises. The
question drawer occupied the evening ses
sion and was conducted by Rev M. Bright.
The following resolutions were reported
by the committee on resolutions and
hereas. We recognize in the Sabbath
school one of the most efilcient agencies of
the church for doini; good,

thus fitted for greater u-efnlness in the
kingdom of gre and m the world.
Resolved. That we sincerely deplore the
lack of interest taken in Sunday sea- oi
work by many of Christ's profecied fol

church during the convention.
The convention then adjourned. Eighty
seven delegates were in attendance during
the two days meeting, and the organiza
