An Alliance ManTUls ills Experience With the
'on-Political' Orginlzatlon Tins
otei-s Heady to Hear tacts.
S N. Bridgeman called the meeting to
oi der at 8 o'clock and Lieutenant Thomas
II. Means was made chairman He bneflj'
stated the object of the meeting and intro
duced Judge A. It. Museller, who in an
earnest and effective wav snoke of the
legislation enacted by the Republican
party within tho last ten jcars In the in
tcrest of the farmer ho wild that while the
west did not get what it wanted in the
silver bill and tariff reduction, jet all
legislation was necessarily m a country
like our own strtclnng from Maine to
California, and from the lakes to the gulf.
A matter of compromise, the interest of all
of these localities and states are to be
answered The east was crjing for high
protection and asking that the siher coin
age be not disturbed. Tho Republican
partj' secured a larger issue of money
and a reduction of tariff on tho articles
which interested the west and especi.illj
the farmer. He should know that nearly
all tho national legislation in the last two
j ear had been in tho interest of the farm
er, the statements of demagogues to the
contiarj' notwithstanding and that tho
Republican party stood willing to make
such loans as would iehee the debtor
class in Kansas this winter, such as the
stay law law and tho equity of redemption
law. Mr. P. A. Rohrbauh was then in
troduced He said the original organiza
tion of the Alliance was intended to secure
to the farmer the benefits of concerted ac
tion to protect their interest socially and
economically and such an organization
was both right and necessary, all other
trades and callmtrs did the sime The
banker, railroid man. the mech inic and
nrtian combined to consult their best in
terest, anu in sucn union tnoro was
strength, and -when properlj' used ex
erted an influence ou legisl ition The
bankers got what they wanted, but not
by the formation of a political pirtj, the
combined influence on the old parties se
cured what thej' wanted. Tho church
could not hold together as a political organ
7 ition,tho Democr.itic members would not
allow tho Republican members to use it
for political purposes, and ice ersa So
the Alliance, whose obligation is not to in
terfere with the political orrcligiou iew&
of anv member, will go to pieces on the
rock politics The old Grange went down
on the rock and it has nlreadj sounded tho
death knell of tho Alliance. He spoke of
tho K insas farmers htvimr secured
through the Republican partj' a member
of the president's cabinet, the commis
sioner of agnculturc, and $20,000 a jear for
ton jeirs toadvanco tho interest of agri
culture That the old party of Lincoln,
Grant and Garfield could hear tho people
think and alwajs responded to the de
mauds of the people.
Joe E Henlej', the candidate lor repre
sentative for tho Eightj -fourth district,
was called for and said that he believed
the legislation demanded bj- tho Republi
can platform, controlling railroad rates in
the interest of tho farmer, should bo
en icted at tho net session of the legisla
tuic, th it he was committed to that plat
form, that he was for John J Ingalls foi
the United States son ite, and if the farm
ers did not want him they ought not to
ote for the speaker. He paid a glowing
tribute to Mr. Ingalls
W. S Morns then spoke earnestly for
a short time He said there were some
things he could not understand He could
not understand whj the Republicau mem
bers of the Alliance was not recognized m
tiie making up of the countj' ticket by tho
Alliance All the county officers nomi
nated wore Democrats He did not under
stand whj' it was that whenever the Alli
ance speakers went for blood it was the
blood of ji Republican.
Charles H Luling made a few remarks,
in which lie di-cused tiie methods of con
ducting thecltrk s office He showed that
his method would have made the common
picas couit of no use hateLr, that tho
district court could have done all tiie busi
ness, that ho had saved to tho tapajers
$-21,000 and the litigants 30S.OO0 during his
S X Bridgeman said ho was a member
of the Alliance in good standing, that his
oblig ition left him at liberty to follow his
own political and religious views, and yet
he was practically ostracised by ins Alliance
because he ie fused to leave tho old Repub
lican partj and vote with the Alliance
men. tho People's ticket Ho said he knew
some things, and this was one of them
Mr C H Schamp, president of the Alli
ance, denied some of the statements of the
speaker He said the reason the banks
didn't go into politics was that thej' got
into the legislate e halls anj waj", and that
they would hold a ineetiuir m tho same
building, in a few dajs, and inwted tho
people out to hoar their speakers The
president was evidently warmed up Mr.
Henlj stated that there never was a tune
in the historj of Kansas that tho farmers
did not have a majontj in the legislature.
1 ho Alliance had called a special meeting
at this school house, but kindlj gave waj
to tho Republican meeting "Minnoha is
nil right there is nothing the matter with
Miuueha " The speakers were frequentlj

remained in jail here some mouths, he
promised to be a good boy and was let out
on a bond of $12,000 He went down home
anil proceeded to play the cowboy, and

for disturbing the peace and showed him
self on all occasioiis quite a rufhan. Judge
Foster was apprised of his actions and his
bond was revoked, and hence Mr. Adams

It was intended to cive him a trial at the

of that kind that little work of this char

THE AAMOL.D CONCBKT.
A fair sized audience gathered at the
First M. E. church Inst evening to hear
the Aamold concert, the second under the
auspices of the Epworth League.
Herr Aucust Aamold is truly master of
the v lolm which he ued at last evening s
concert. His execution reminds one of
Canu ie Urso. and he is not uniike Minor
Cnmpanan, who is a Wichita favorite. His
rendition of his first number, by Ro4T,
completelj' captivated the audience Hi
second was a double number, consistia:;
of a Mazurka by Wieoiawskvt ami Av
Marie by Gouaod, and was eqnally a well
executed and appreciated by tbe audience.
The third seemed to be his faTorue,
Gigeunerweisen by Sarasato, for he was
encored and rendered an air bvSohtunann.
and his last number -was the best of all.
Nocturne by Chopin, -w hich left the audi
ence in a good humor and hoping that he
might come again soon.
Master Louis Elbel is truly a prodigy for
he is scarce 12, and yet he rendered Men
delssohn's Raudo Capriciaso E. Major,
Chapm's Polonaise op. 40, and Liszt's
Rhopsodie Hongroise No 2, as well as the
most accomplished pianist. He won an
encore on his second and last number.
The management of the concert truly
made a lucky hit when they secured Mr.
J. B Shields of St. Loui3, for two numbers
Caloary. by Rodney and Forget all thy
Sorrow, bj Millard- His encore piece was
Farewell Marganette by Boanlmau. He
has a very rich tenor voice andthoewho
did not hear him last evening niNseda
treat. His accompaniments were plujed
by Harrj Sheppard on the pipe organ.
A LADl INVENTOK.
Some two or three months since the
Eagle published a cut of a window
w asher inv ented and patented bj' Ella A.
Stauffer of this citj', an ingenious yet
simple device to enable anyone to wash
the outside of windows while standing ou
tho mside, with the least possible effort.
It saves tho necessitj' of taking out the
sash on the one hand or exposing the per
son to the chances of a fall on the other.
It is said to be so convenient and simple
that it would be but little trouble to va-h
the windows everj day or two Miss
Stauffer has been awarded a medal bj' the
Pans exposition for her invention notifica
tion of which fact ho bas received through
official sources. Sue is also in receipt
of letters and propositions from London
patent right dealers who are anxious to
nandleoi buj' the invention A day or
two since a San Francisco Datent right
firm who had been inquiring into the mer
its of the device, wrote to her for the right
for the states of the Pacific coast. Miss
Stauffer does not intend to manufacture,
herself, but will sell state aud city rights
for tho exclusive manufacture and sale of
her washer, aud she cm be addressed
through the post office of this citj', or con
sulted at her rooms She, herselt, is satis
fied that the invent on is a valuable oue,
which will be found verj' useful and popu
lar, if not indispensable
While it is not denied that in almost
every town of the west, important enough
to bo known as a trade center, not except
ing the cities of Omaha and Kansas Citj',
business has been languishing and is still
so sluggish as to distress dealers, it is a
fact that the local retail as well as tiie
w holesale trade of Wichita is rapidlj in
creasing There has been hardly a day in
a month that we have not been stopped by
some dealer with the announcement that
his trade was far surpassing that of a jear
ago or of two j ears ago, eta, they gener
ally naming a per cent in which tho pres
ent fall trade was exceeding that
of last jear. A prominent merchant
of this city last evening, who
lias been a leading dealer for a number of
j ears, assured us that his trado for Sept
ember and the first half of October had
been just 100 per cent greater than for the
same time lost j ear These assurances nro
most gratif j mg While they speak, in un
mistakable terms, of increasing business
for Wichita, they indicate a revival of bet
ter times all around A renewal of pros
penty for southern Kaunas will, unque-t-ionablj',
find its first indication in its me
tropolis and trade center, and as tho im
pulse is alreadj' and strongly being felt bj

times in the near future for all of our

Newton Beers in "Wild Oats" last night
was greeted by another large and appre
ciative audience. It is in such roles as the
one Mr. Beers appeared in last night that
he is seen to the best advantage. Tonight
will be presented for the first time in this
city the famous thrilling inelo-drama
"Jagon" or the story of "A Father's
Love," in which Mr. Beers will appear as
"Jagon." This play has had an unpre
cedented run in London and Pans, and in
New York standing room only was pla
carded before S o'clock every evening
night after night, Mr. Beers has presented
the play 122 consecutive nights in the
larger eastern towns; the press praising
the plot in det.ul and the people going
wild with enthusiasm over the pathetic
and humorous situations. It abounds
with thrilling situations that reach a
climax in everj' act. No expense has been
spared in order that the scenic effects
shall vie with the theme of the plot, and
the full strength of the company is re
quired to complete the cast. No one
should miss seeing this play, as there may
not be such a chance presented again to
see such a plaj' in this citj' for years.
