The Republicans of Delano township
were addressed by Messrs. Judge Martin.
O. G. Eckstein and Representative Phillips,
Mr. Pat. McDonald presided and, after
stating the object of the meeting, intro
duced Mr. Eckstein as the first speaker.
Mr. Eckstein argued the causes leadine to
the stringency of the times and reviewed
the legislation of the Republican party for
the past ten years, showing that the party
had been faithful to the pledges made to
the people. He commended the organiza
tion of the Alliance, and said the declara
tions of tho Alliance were right, and that
tne farmers should organize for their busi
ness interests, but that as soon as they used
the Alliance for partisan purposes
its benefit to the farmer would cease, and
it but follow organizations of like charac
ter and sink into oblivion. That the Re
publican party was composed mainly of
farmers who dictated tho policy of the
party, and was the party trusted to make
all the reforms demanded by the Alliance.
He discussed tho silver question at
length, bhowing the fallacy of the claims
mat tue circulating meuium nau con
tracted, and that the silver bill recently
passed instead of demonetizing silver
added over fcOO.000,000 yearly to our cur
rency. Ho said that while the tariff
bill was not exactly what the
west wanted, it still reduced the
revenues, und as a compromise measure
was a good thing.
He said the Alliance was manipulated
by Democratic office seekers, who ask Re
publicans to elect them to office under
pledges that are visionary and that would
never be kept. A Republican would gain
nothing by electiuv a Democrat to office,
and that all tho demauds of the Alliance
could be better obtained in the Republican
party. Ho referred the union labor alarm
ist to Jerry Simpson's record on the
labor question, showing how lie paid them
by store receipts upon which he made a
profit by way of percentage, aud compared
him to the gallant leader of Republican
principles, Col. Hallowell.
Judge Martin, the next speaker, review
ed the history of tho Republican nartv aud
j reviewed the legislation of the party dur
ing uio past twenty-live years, snowing
that the Democrats had hardly a thought
not originated in the counsels of the Re
publican party. Ho reviewed the
actions of tho party on tho financial
question, showing that it was abundantly
able to handle tho currency question at the
present time as it was all questions, in
which tho farmer was interested. He also
spoke of tho tariff legislation and tho
building up of our infant indus
tries iu diversifying employment and
that it was tho policy of
tho party was to place the tariff
so that it would be the least burdensome
to tho people.
Ho revieved the acts of tho Republican
candidates, extoled their past services and
their work in the interest of the people
and trusted that tho people would not bo
deceived by tho false utterances of the
Democracy of the opposition. Ho said it
was the duty of every Republican to see
that a Republican representative was
elected, to cast his voto for the return
of that grand statesman, John J. Iugalls,
to the United States senate.
Mr. Phillips was then introduced aud
showed his position upon the questions
dear to the farmer, and reviewed tho acts
of tho last legislature aud said he was
particularly iu favor of a stay law and
dwelt at length upon a uniformity of
school books and that these should bo
issued by the state at cost. He spoke also
of his stand on the Alliance question, and
while ho was in perfect accord with tho
principles of tho Alliance ho did not en
dorse its partisan methods.
The Republicans aro in earnest nnd will
give tho usual Republican majoritj-.
THE COLWICII MEETING.
The meeting was called to order by Mr.
Jesse Ask and Mr. Sterns was made chair
man. The night was dark, cold and
stormy and very much affected tho
audience and j-et a goodly number of the
citizens of tho township were present in
the city hall, which was pleasantly seated
and lighted. Tho chairman stated that ho
was not a speaker but was glad to see so
many persons presenton sostormyanight,
it was an evidence of tho fact that tho Re
publicans of Union township were in line.
Ho noticed that Mr. Rohrbaugh had
hung his baton tho school globo and re
marked that one of tho speakers had put
the world in his hat and would bo able to
discuss some of tho minor issues and there
upon introduced P. A. Rohrbaugh, of this
Mr. Rohrbaugh said: "I am a Republi
can becauso tho Republican party is
the intelligent thinking progressive party
of this county a county stretching from
seaboard to seaboard. 3,000 miles oast and
west, ami from tho frozen lakes on tho
north to the burning stinds on the south,
with almost as many climatic influences
and diversified interests as, wo have states
in tho Union. All of this interest has to
bo subserved. The Republicans of Maine
and other eastern nnd nothern states want
a high protective tariff; the extreme west
wnnts free trade. The east wants no dis
turbance in the money markets; the west
cries out for free coinage. Here they stood,
theso two mighty powers, in tho ranks of
the thinking progressive party of tho age,
set over against each otlr. What was to
bo doue? Should each refuse to yield and
thus dofeat both olements? No, the part
of wisdom was shown, these powers came
together, compromised their difference as
host they could, secured the best results
they could and while the west did not get
all they wanted, they got half of what they
asked for, the tariff was reduced on many
things, the west was interested in binding
twine nnd lumber, both of which has been
reduced 30 per cent. The duty on hores,
cattle, hogs, sheep aud all kinds of farm
products has beon increased, thus shutting
the foreign competition out and giving
to the American fanner the home
market. Again, while wo did not get
free coinage, wo did get from the last con
gress, an additional circulation that
amounts to J?J,O0o,O00 a year. It is in this
way all legislation is secured, and the
Democratic party has never been broad
enough to compromise on any measure of
intorestto tho people. With a majority
in both houses of congress, they made no
laws for our good. The Republican party
at the instance of the people, has now on
its jmssago a bankruptcy law intended to
relieve tho debt burdened people of Kansas.
TbaKausas Republican party havo de
clared for a stay law and an equity of re
demption. "Now, my fellow citizens, elect a Demo
crat to represent you and he will be as
louesome in the next legislature as a grain
of pepper in an empty flour barrel, and ex
ert about as much influence.
He then spoke of the visionary sohemes
of the political Alliance to buy up all the
railroads and make the government a vast
store house to pawn their grain in, and
and tho result of an inflated currency,
which paralyzed tho business of the coun
try iu 1ST0.
Mr. O. II. Bentley was called for and re
sponded by saying that he didn't intend to
make a speech; that he was a Repub
lican, although he sometimes dill
ered with many of his own party;
he had long since learned that the only
hope for the people lay In the Republican
educate his party and through It the people
would get what they want. He said he
got up a split over in Ohio once and went
into the spit, and that movement was
going to sweep the deck and he was unfor
tunate enough to accept a nomination on
that combination ticket and was on deck
at the time the sweeping was dono nnd
went off under tho old Republican broom,
since that time he kept his hand on the
right broom handle. He paid a tribute to
all the county Republican candidates and J
said he saw no reason why every one of
them should not bo elected and he believed
they could be, and that Colonel Hallowell
would receive an ovation from his own
county. He said he was told by an old
soldier who saw the act, that at the storm
ing of Montgomery hill, a young colonel,
21 years of age, was riding at the head of
his regiment and in the road at his horses
feet lay a soldier boy with his dead cold
face turned toward heaven. That young
colonel dismounted, took out his
handkerchief, laid it gently over
that white face, and remounted
and made that magnificent charge
which crowned the brow of that young
colonel with the title of prince, a name
sacred to that awful moment. That boy
was Jim HallowelL That name today is
flonted at by some who do not know its
history, and some who have not the cour
age to earn such a name.
W. S. Morris said he was candidate for
county attorney on the Republican ticket
He did not intend to make a speech, he
came out to talk to and see the people and
wanted their support and should try if
elected to merit it.
W. T. Buckner, candidate for probate
judge, said he was glad to be there. He
remembered Brother Bentley's split nnd
didn't think ho would go into auy more
splits. He was a young man then.
Ed Phillips, candidate for legislature,
said he had been paying very close atten
tion to what his Alliance friends had to
say. He was a member in good standing
in the Alliance, but was at the same time
a Republican and farmer, because he be
lieved tho Alliance should not go into poli
tics tts an organization. It would destroy
the organization. He was kindly disposed
toward his opponent, and knew no good
reason why a Republican should not voto
for him. He had tried hard to do his duty
for his farmer friends.
Charles H. Luliag, candidate for clerk,
said he ho did not come to talk, he came
to see many of his friends and was willing
to leave his cause iu their hands.
Tho meeting was a grand success; every
one seemed pleased with the meeting, tho
speakers and with themselves, nnd from
the beginning to the close tho whole meet
ing was one of good-fellowship. Tho Re
publican ticket will poll its full vote at
THE REUNION 21 AND 22.

Funds and Provisions and Tents
WHAT DO YOU THINK OF IT?
The general reunion committee held a
meeting at the county clerk's office last
evening. It was the universal regret that
in some way a mistake in the date of the
reunion had got out among the papers in
the southwest. The reunion is to be held
ond the 21 and 22, instead of the 23 and 24;
at some of the papers have it. On this
topic alone the committea has in the
lost two days received over two hundred
letters. The mistake is being corrected as
rapidly as possible and the committee
would extend thanks sincerely to all pa
pers having made the mistake to be kind
enough to make the correction. In this
way it is thought the matter can be under
stood by the thousands of comrades in the
The committee on program had some
encouraging news and promise more very
soon. Ex-Governor George T. Anthony
wired yesterday that he would arrive on
the 21, and be on hand both days. It is es
pecially desired to avoid everything politi
cal, this policy having been adopted at the
first. An invitation has been extended all
the leading politicians of the state no mat
ter what the politics.
The committee on finance last evening
reported all tho money raised necessary.
That important part of the work is at
tended to. The committee on entertain
ment is making arrangements for all the
"grub" and tents that will possibly be
needed for the two days. Every comrade
and his family will bo provided with a
tent as comfortable as would be expected.
Lon Hoding reports clever progress, he
having in charge tho bull part of the
barbecue. He has the animal chained
down in his neighborhood and has a day
and night man to guard him.
An invitation was extended to Company
A., Second regiment, K. N. G., to attend
the reunion; to go in camp on the grounds.
It is thought there is no doubt but that
the invitation will be accepted.
Tho committee renting privileges is be
ing pressed for space and is locating tho
venders as convenient as possible.

THE ANNUAL MEETING.
"Tlie drjinc up of a single tear has more
Of honest tttme than shi-tldiug seat of cure."
That man of all men ever endeavored to
impress it upon the children of all other
men that this earth offered no greater
opportunity for exalted happiness than
charity towards the world's poor. Deeds
of unselfish love stay with us forever.
There is no autumn, nor winter age or
death to the happiness that comes to warm
the heart of a good deed done. And there
is no mercy so nearly heaven born as that
extended to tho fatherless and tho friend
less, no bounty that can be bestowed that
will reach nearer God's eternal throne.
The widows mite has fed and clothed
millions. Pitying tears are sacred
but bread for the crying orphan
nnd clothing for needy and dependent
little ones exhalts the soul of the
giver. The happiness of benevolence and
the bliss of charity are pleasures which
cost the least and are yet the moat easily
"DM charity prevail, the press would nrovo
A voiiiclu of virtue, truth anil love. '
There is a home full of little children,
innocent, defenseless babes down here at
119 Pennsylvania avpnuo, who have been
rescued from poverty nnd distress, from
crime and maybe from death, by some of
Wichita's noblo and unselfish women.
These little waifs have been cared for and
fed and clothed nnd nursed month in and
month out, without an appeal for help.
Today is their annual donation day. Last
year the Eagle made an appeal for this
home of helpless toddlers aud the response
was most gratifying as it was generous. So
you are asked to go and take or sond some
thing, if it is ever so little, this morning
to help light up and keep warm tho home
of thoso motherless little ones through the
long, dark hours and cold days and nights
of tho coming winter. These are hard
times. We know that. But all the greater
is the danger that the inmates in this little
cuanty nonie win sutler. J..OOK at your
own comfortable little ones as they sur
round your well supplied breakfast table
this morninc, nnd think how it would be
if vou were gone nnd their little heads were
bowed over the scanty crumbs of a charity
home. Then order out your buggies the
first thing this morning and carry
something down to No. 110
Pennsylvania avenue. Even if your kind
act is overlooked in the great da- of reck
oning you will be better for the act and
die just as rich and just as happy. If you
haven't got any home, nor auy children,
nor any little comfort that 3011 can con
tribute, then send a little money, a quar
ter, a dollar, anything that will pay for so
much as a sweet piece of bread and butter.
"The dearest pleasure of a senerous uct
I the great mind's treat tribe.'
Dr. Stevenson, superintendent of city
schools, left last evening to attend tho

GUAM) JIASTKIt MATJIEWSON.
In its comment upon the action of the
Grand Lodge, I. O. G. F., in electing Hon.
William Mathewson to the position of
grand master, the Topeka Democrat has
this to say of our worthy fellow citizen:
Graud Master William Mnthewson, of
Wichita, who was elected to that position
today, is one of the best know 11 members
of the order in the state, where he has re
sided siuce 1852. He was born in Bing
hampton, N. J., in 1830, and came west in
1849, crossing the Mississippi river where
Omaha now stands. He was the builder
of the first log house in Wichita, portions
of which are still standing.
Mr. Mathewson is considered to have
done as much, if not more for thecau-e
of the Odd Fellowship in the state, and es
pecially in the southwestern portion, than
any other man. Ho is known and every
where recoguized as a tireless worker for
the cause and it was but u fitting recog
nition for his services that he was elected
to tho responsible position of graud mas
ter. Mr. Mathewson is the original "Buffalo
Bill" of Kansas, and has a store of remin
iscences on hand, that, if published, would
make very interesting reading. He is at
present engaged in the banking business
The Republican central committee yes
terday rearranged the meetings' for the
county making, however, but - slight
changes. The meetings that have been
held have in every case been seed sown in
good ground and in the various townships
the average voter wants another meeting.
The members of the committee who have
been giving the work the most attention
sav that this is above all other campaigns i
n campaign for speech making. That peo
ple are very earnest and don't want to
hear rantintr but want to hear facts. A
dry speech filled with facts, or a speech
that would ordinarily be termed an ex
tremely dry one, is of more value this year
than the flash kind.
The meetings are being well attended
and show an earnestness that makes it I
even a pleasure for the average speaker to
appear before the public.
The meetings commence at 7:30 p. m.,
and the dates, as arranged up to the 30th
inst., are as follows:

Yesterday tho Eagle was in receipt of a
thousand or more telephonic aud other
messages inquiring why the paper did not
contain an account of the fire night before
last. The query will probably remain un
answered until the time when the en
vironments of the newspaper reporter will
be too hot to make such a fire of any im
portance. It was early in the evening and
the fire department was out in force, the
whistles blew and the bells rang, and all
the upper end of the city was tumult
uously tossing about 'neath the lurid light
of tho burning building. Tho hog and
cow reporter was immediately notified, the
foreman of the composing room called up
by telephone, the joint city council and
political reporter pulled out of bed, and
still there was no report of the fire
over got into type. One of the staff
followed an engine from Oak street to
the scene ol conflagration, the fire depart
ment sent in the full details at the earliest
moment, yet the Eagle came out yester
day morning with an extra issue of a
thousand copies which were all sold before
the newsboys found out that the paper did
not contain n single word about the fire.
Finally a notice had to be posted in the
counting rooms to the effect that the re
porter whoe business it was to make up a
report of the fire had suicided some hours
previous to 'the turning in of the first
alarm, whereupon and after which every
body said 'good" and went away happy.
