The railroad committee of tho city coun
cil consisting of Williams, Glaze and
Buckeridge met last night together with
City Attorney Wilson, to consider the
petition to call an election to vote bonds
to tho Dakota, Wichita and Galveston
road. Senator O. IL Bentley was present
as attorney ,for tho road and Mr. Eisen
meyer of Ilalstead, interested in the com
pany, was also present. Tho legal require
ments, as claimed, that tho committee
(should meet, consists in finding out
whether or not two-fifths of the tax nayera
in the eity huve signed the uetitiou asking
that an election be called. The petition
was examined to some extent when there
was a general talk about tho road, its
probable value to Wichita and ita import
ance to the city,
A member of tho committeo wanted the
contract to will for a depot to cost 10,000
to bo erected and that half the bonds be
delivered when the road is built to Mc
Pherson and the other half delivered when
the depot building costing not less than
810,000 is completed. Mr. Eisen
meyer, insisted that if companies
worth millions and operating thousands
of miles could not afford a $10,000 depot it
would certainly be folly to impose that on
tlie new company. There were very few
?10.000 depots in tho state and the depot
would come as a matter of business when
the business demanded it. A railroad
would probably be of more importance to
the city thau a stone building for
tho most part empty for years. Some
contractor in town might be urging
it and it would make moro beauti
fully winding financial complications
to come up. Ho did not believe the tax
payers of Wichita would favor stone for
show to $10,000 expended in reaching out
for moro hogs, wheat and corn to bo sup
plied by tho Wichita business houses. Ho
ditl not waut the bond proposition to
specify that the road would go to McPher
son for in that event that town would seo
they would get tho road without voting
bonds. Ho expected to go to McPherson
with tho road and would no doubt get aid
there. Ho wouid, of course, agree to touch
tho Union Pacific at some importaut point.

Gctober 13, at 7:30 p. m.
Gen. Caldwell Is one of tho most elo
quent speakers in the we3t. He was a
gallant union soldier, and is fully posted
on all great questions of the eta to and
nation. Tho Republican central commit
tee will make arrangements for care with
the Electric Railway company, and pro
vide such accommodations for the public
as will be required. The Republicans in
the north part of town ask for a good
speaker as a starter for a big meeting and
the county central committee in respond

rarely equaled in discussing the issues of
the day in a clear, concise and common
sense manner. Gen. Caldwell will face
a large crowd.

A NOBLE RECORD.
American Sunday School Union, KockT Moun
Mr. William Mathewson stated yester
day that he had for aomo tiino been labor
ing with tho city council to get somo
money for tho Children's Homo. That in
stitution has at present by far moro in
mates than dollars and there was more
need of dollars than inmates. Tlie coun
cil agreed, according to Mr. Mathewson,
to allow the homo S75 per month. The
promise was all right but a little money,
in his judgment, would bo better. No
money had been received for tho institu
tion for sovou months and tho manage
ment had for a long time conducted tho
affairs on hopes and prospects.
At present there aro twenty children at
tho home and within tho present year
homes havo been found for over eighty
children. Mr. Mathewson thiuks tlie in
stitution is doing a good work and should
receive tlie aid promised tho city.
In tho meantime tho hospital and such
institutions in the city which receive city
aid are much agitated over the matter
now beforo tho council. Three hospitals
are to receive city support and somo one
suggested more money was going out in
this direction than was necessary to do
tho work expected. Upon this basis tho St.
Francis by a communication to tho coun
cil promises to tako caro of three-fourths
of tho city patients for $7o per month
and of nil of tbem for J100 per month. By
accepting this proposition it is claimed tho
expense to tho city in this direction would
be cut down nearly two-thirds, which
would bo an item of somo importance.
The matter was referred to tho committee
The members find themselves besieged
on all sides by the friends of tho various
hospitals. The city physicians are divided
up among tho hospitals and they always
tako an euergotic hand in hospital matters.
They wore on to the committee quick and
and emphatic, with personal preferences.
The members fearing to bring in a report
of any kind, slide off tho log into the water
by giving the number of patients in eacli
hospital. Tho other members of tho coun
cil, not being in tho fire, rather enjoyed
the predicament of tho committee, and
proceeded to give instruction to submit a
report to accept or reject tho offer of St.
Francis. It is supposed tho committee
will be able to report at tho next meeting
of the council As a result they are hav
ing a lively time with tho physicians and
The miss'onaries of this district during
the past six months have accomplished the
following: One hundred and three Sunday
schools organized, containing 36 teachers,
3,370 scholars, total membership 3,750; 235
schools aided by visits containing 1,130
teachers, 11,031 scholars, total membership
13,002; 433 visits and aids to schools previ

17,831 scholars; $1,073 worth of literature
distributed; 1,050 copies of tho scriptures
distributed; 2,023 families visited for re
ligious and Sunday school work; $1,734 col

and addresses delivered; 42,218 miles trav

April 1, 1890, J. W. Armstrong, for four
years past the county Sunday school mis
sionary, was transferred to Washington,
and Dugald McCormick took up tho work
Following is a condensed report of his
labors for six months, (April-September):
0 schools organized and 5 reorganized
containing 41 teachers and 330 scholars;
10 schools visited to aid and improve them
containing 4G teachers and 2SS scholars;
121 copies of tho scriptures distributed;
1S5 families visited for religious and Sun
day school work; 37 addresses and sermons
delivered, 7 conventions and celebrations
held representing 20 schools, 2.GS0 miles
travel, chiefly by buggy.
No figures appear of the sermons and
exhortations preached to individuals, at
the hearthstone, in the field and upon tho
highway, often tho most effective; tho
many unmentionable discomforts incident
to missionary life; but enough appears
above to cause gratitude to God.

IIL MANIC SOCIKTY MKETING.
Tho directors of the Humane society
bald a meeting yesterday afternoon nt tho
ollico of Dr. Stevenson, superiutendent of
city schools. Mrs. E J. Foster's resignation
as secretary of tho society was accepted. It
was presented somo weeks ago and the
society avoided accepting as long as possi
ble and when sho refused to servo nny
longer it was finally decided to release her
from tlie duties of tho position. She has
held the position ever since tho organiza
tion of the society and has attended to its
duties with n deep earnestness and care,
making her almost invaluable to tho as
sociation. The society made no selection of secre
tary yesterday and will probably not do so
for several weeks. In tho meantime the

Most of tho session was spont in routine
work and it was observed that tho finance
committeo had done very little in its line.
It was generally conceded that funds were
quite important in carrying on any good
work and especially important with the
society. Tho committeo was given a clever
off-hand lecture for its Inactivity and re
quested and instructed to proceed to pro

Tho musio lovers of tho city assembled
last evening at tho First M. E. church for
the second time to hear Mr. Taft, the
organist. This gentleman is n wonderful
success. His orchestral effects aro most
brilliantly portrayed by artistic combina
tions, his touch is elastic, delecato and
graceful, and his hearers at onco feel and
understand what ho plays, which bring3
him en-rapport with tho audience. Ho
plays equally well a strict Bach Fugue as
all of the moro modern and pleasing com
positions for the organ of Guilmant Batiste
Welti' and others. He is not only a per
former beyond reproach, but also a com
poser of much ubility. He 1ms a brilliant
future which he lias fairly entered.
Added to the program for last evening was
a tenor solo "Como to Me," by Mr. Robert
Sniythe, one of Wichita's favorite singers,
who was in splendid voice and sang in his
usual excellent manner.
A solo, Farwcll, by Millard, was
sung by Miss Annio C. Peel, who sang
with an artistic finish which thrilled the
auditors, displaying a compass of voice
seldom heard, fully sustaining tho reputa
tion which she so justly has won.
Tho Epworth League aro to be con
gratulated in their success in entertaining
two critical audiences this week with music
of so high and classical standard.
A LOST MAN.
A Republican meeting was held at
Waco, in Salem township, last evening,
and addresses were made by H. C. Brooks,
O. G. EcksUin and N. E. Harmon. The
house was packed, there being over sixty
voters present, most of whom were Alli

was a glorious surprise that so many Alli
ance men were present in face of the claim
that the Alliance had refused to attend
Mr. Brooks in over an hour's speech, re
vived the legislation of tho Republican
party for the past ten years, and the
causes leading to the depression of the
the times, and discussed the economic
question in an able manner, showing that
the acta of the Republican party have al
ways been favorable and for the best in

Mr. Eckstein also spoke forover an hour,
and showed the origin of the Political
alliance, and that its purposes in building
up the farming community was commend
able, but that its partisan features were a
scheme of southern Democracy, gotten up
to solidify the Democratic party in the
north, with the aid of those Republicans
who could be led into tho trap. That the
Republican party had always kept its
pledges and could always bo trust
ed to remain true to its principles
and in its pledges to the farmer. That all
tho officers nominated by the County-Alliance
were Democratic sore heads who hail
