The Pointers from Senator Plnmb About
tho PoUtlcal Georgia Alliance
Scheme Being Utilized.
The pointers Senator Plumb gave the
local speakers on tho political Aliiance
was quite valuable information and most
effective. They have been using it with
out apology and the members of the orcan
ization themselves are qnie glad to hear
somethiug of the inside history of what in
part has been turned into n political
scheme, headed by office-seekers, book
sellers and collection-makers. The work
during the last week has been most satis

The Republicans of Delano township
were addressed by Messrs. J. S. Carson and
G. G. Eckstein.
Mr. Carson in an hour's speech reviewed
the state legislation of the Republican
partj, showing that Kansas represented
by the Republican party had legislated
in favor of the laboring classes, citing the
homestead-exemption garnishment laws,
also the trust and combine bill, lie also re
viewed the last legislation of the Republi-J
'can party in its national matters, and
traced, the wages of the laboring man in
1870, IbTO.imd 1870 showing that the same
hasgnadualiy'inqrcftsed while the'pricc of
cemmodities had ; prohortionatel de
creased during the same' periods and that
the laboring man during Republican rule
had prospered more than under the rule of
the Democracy. He compared the condi
tions of the people of that and other coun
tries, Bud affirmed that it was due to the
system of protection inaugurated
by the Republican party. He dwelt partic
ularly upon the tariff showing that while
this bill was not all we had hoped for, still
served our interests better than tho off
spring of Democracy, the Mills bill, and
that it had lessened the burden to the
farmer and protected his interests better
than any bill presented by tho opposition,
He said the Republican party was a partj
in tho interett of the farmers and its legis
lation was always in the interest and for
the benefit of tho laboring classes.
Mr. Eckstein was then introduced and
said that the Republican party was a party
for and by the people and that a free and
fair discussion of the questions of the
campaign, and that was so engrated in our
ideas of justice, th.t no 'intelligent
citizens would listen to the plead
ings of thoso so-called leaders of
the third party not to listen to Republican
speeches for fear some would go astray.
He believed that the government was safe
in the hands of the people, and that no par
tj' could sustain, which did not advocate a
fair discussion fall the questions before
Ho discussed the present existing depres
sion of business audi showed up the so
called vicious (v) legislation of the Repub
lican part y. He reviewed the acts of the
past congress and legislature of the slate,
and said if that was vicious legislation
every laboring man would cry for more.
He clearly showed the fallacy of the Alli
ance argument that tho currency hiid con
tracted during the past twelve years, and
discussed at length tho economic ques
tions, and dwelt especially upon the silver
bill passed by a Republican congress, show
ing that instead of demonetizing silver
it added nearly $f0,000,U(H) yearly to our cir
culating medium. He discussed the rail
road question and then paid his compli
ments to the 2 per rent loaning business
of tho United States, advocated by Jere
Simpson and other leaders. He said it
never could be, and never could bo hoped
for, in the history of any party.
He compared Simpson with that gallant
and representative Republican, Col. Hallo
well, and said tnac Sedgwick county for
the first time, could elect her own repre
sentative, aud that he had too much confi
dence in their good judgment to believe
that Simpson could obtain their support.
His allusions to llallowell were received
with applause. He also spoke of the county
ticket, and compared them with the can
didates upon the Alliance and Democratic
Mr. Pat. McDonald was also called for,
and in a .short address showed that the
Republican party has always been stead
fast in its allegieucies to the farmers of
the state and that it could always be re
lied upon to staud by them in all their de
mandf. Delano will cast less Allinnce
otrs than auy township in the county
and llallowell will run ahead of the ticket.
Ed. W. Phillips called the meeting to
order and A. T. Green was madeeheirnitn.
A large and enthusiastic audience was
present, consisting of ladies and gentle
men. W. L Sturdcvaut first ad
dressed tho meeting Hespokoat length
of the silver bill and the past and present
condition of the currency. Ho then briefly
reviewed the legislation of congress aud
the state legislation in the interest of tho
farmer and laborer. P A. Rohrbaugh
then addressed the meet ing, directing his
remarks to the political alliance and the
visionary schemes of the Alliance orators.
He was followed by Ed Phillips, the
farmer candidate on the Republican ticket
for representative. Mr. Phillips said he
had leen charged with voting for the com
mon ploas court. This he did not do.
whether the bill was a good one or not. as
the names would show. He spoke at some
length of his interests as a farmer and
said that any law which would aflect the
farmer would aflect him
AT GAKDKV TLAIS.
A rousing Republican rally was held nt
Garden plain on Frklay evening, addro.-ed
by Senator O II. Bentley and A. M. Stur-
tevant, Eq. An Alliance meeting was
held at the same time and place, and a
vr1 r?,n r pt ine
in the Methodist church: ver. notwith-
in tho Methodist church; yet, notwith
standing this fact, and the further fact
that the meeting began late, about 9
o'clock, the meeting was a success and dkl
not close until nearly midnight. Mr.
Sturtevant was the first spenker intro
duced and for about one hour hold the
close attention of the audience.
He discussed at great length, and with
force aud precision, the many recent acts
ofoonsress. covering the great economic
questions of the hour. Mr. Sturtevant is
n close, enreful, logical spenkor. His dis
cussion of the silver bill and concression.il
action thereon, was timely aud well put.
At the close of Mr. Sturtevant's address
Senator O. H. Bentley was presented nnd
spoke for more than an hour, discussing
the campaign largely from a local stand
point, and touching up the personnel of
the congressional and county ticket.
Senator Bentley laid special stress upon
the Fnrmer's Alliance being of southern
origin, the charters of the order coming
from Texas, and that nnder the present
circumstances, that the Alliance was un
wittingly, even in Republican Kansas, al
lowing itself to be used as the aid and first
lieutenant of the Democratic party. Sena
tor Bentley made a careful comparison
between Jerry Simpson and that gallant
soldier and citizen, Col. James R. Hallo
well. Senator Bentley specially urged the
elcctiou of Hon. E. W. Phillipps, as rcpre-
tentative of this district, and said "-. I
Phillips was an honorable, high-minded
gentlemau, a farmer, and a member of
the Alliance in good standing. As a fur
ther reason for the return of Mr. Phillips,
Mr. Bentley said that Mr. Phillips would
vote for Senator Ingalls.
Senator Bently said that in the joint
convention of the two houses his name
appeared first on the alphabetical roll calL
That in the last session he was proud to
say that he was the first man on the call
to vote for Senator Plumb, and that at the
coming session he would consider it a
privilege and and an honor to vote for
Johu James Ingalls, for United States
senator. Senator Bentley illustrated his
speech with humorous anecdotes, which
kept his audience in good humor, and
while dealing the opposition telling blows,
ouenuea no one. The meeting was a
pleasant one and was voted a success by
every one present. It was thoroughly
billed by that staunch Republican, John
Vannemau, Esq., who presided at the
Put down that locality for the full Re
publican vote at the coming election.
The Republican rally at Cheney on Fri
day night was a splendid success. County
Committeeman A. S. Marble called tho
meeting to order. The meeting was ad
dress by C. A. Brooks, who in a masterly
review of the situation, said that the hard
times which oppressed the people of Kan
sas, reached all classes, even the mortgage
jCompanies, who were so roundly berated,
,were rapidly becomingbankrupts;this was
an evidence that the' could not prosper
where the, farmer was successful. We are
interested in the success of the farmer. He
then showed that the political parties were
not responsible for the hard times. That
the hard times had brought about the Al
liance movement; that the legislation of
the Republican party had been constantly
in the interest of the farmiug element. He
spoke of the reduction in the tariff the
silver bili; the anti-trust and combine bill;
the pension bill and other matters of inter
est to the farmer. He alluded to the fact
that the Kansas legislature had always
been composed of a majority of farmers,
and that thej had made laws to suit them
selves, including the exemption of the la
borers' wages, tho homestead aud house
hold goods, and the fact that the laborer
had by virtue of the law a lien for his
work. He also referred to the several
platforms of the several parties; that they
all demanded much the same thing; that
the Republican party was the only party
to whom the people could look for a per
formance of their pledge to the people.
Mr. Brooks spoke for an hour and a half
and was heard with tho most earnest
P. A. Rohrbaugh was then introduced.
He said if our former f rieud should have
offered them the things then orators were
demanding, like the old donkey who pray
ed for God to come right away and take
him to heaven. When the Lord knocked
for admittance he insisted that ho didn't
mean what he said. It was only a form of
prayer. He referred briefly to tho vision
ary schemes of these orators to purchase
tho railroads, build warehouses, lend
money at 1 per cent to the people, and he
spoke of the inc jrable law of nature and
society which required that by the sweat
of thu face man should eat his bread; that
all valuable things were only to be had by
labor and economy, and the man who went
into the great Kausus boom and lost his
all ought to take his medicine like a man,
and go to work to repair tho evil by the
neoessary laws of trade. lie spoke also of
tho fact that no secret political organiza
tion could exist in a free country: that any
organization which sought to make laws
to control and affect all the citizens must
be opcu to tho inspection of all men; that
such an organization is iuimical and dan
gerous to free institutions and would not
bo tolerated by the people. That the Dem
ocrats of the south were using the Kansas
farmer to defeat John J. Ingalls, a man
who bj- his own inherent strength was
holding Kansas in the front rank of tho
galaxy of states. Mr. Rohrbaugh spoke
for an hour in a happy vein which kept his
audience in a humorous mood.
The meeting wos a great success in num
bers and enthusiasm. Mr. Marble says
the Republicans are all right at Cheney,
and we may add that Mr. .Marble is an
active and enthusiastic committeeman.

THE ENTKE NODS EXTEETArXMENT.
The well known and charitable society
known as the Entre 2$bus, gave a most in
teresting and amusing entertainment, fol
lowed by a dance and a lunch. It is an old
established fact that whatever has taken
place under the auspices of this flourishing
and energetic society, has ever met with
success, but there is every reason to con
clude that the last effort deserves appre
ciative commending mention.
The performance began with that beanti
tiful tableau known as "Lorelei," ably
represented by Mrs. A. Katz, who looked
lovelier than ever in the graceful and
statuesque nose. Following her, appeared
the young favorites. Miss Dell and Miss
Hannah Goldberg in a song and dance
duet, which was met with great applause.
Their tasty little costumes and pretty
movements but added to their sweet voices
and cute selections. A very effective reci
tation from Miss Hannah Gold
berg followed. Then came that
much admired set of pictures,
"In Love" and "The Peacemaker," repre
sented in tableaux by Mrs. Robert Jacks,
Mrs. Charles Cohn and Mr. M. W. Levy.
To say the ladies looked lovely, each in
their separate styles of Grecian beauty,
does not express how very sweet and
touching these tableaux were represented
by them, aud Mr. Levy was a typical
lover all the way tnroucu. He was in the
next tableau aud in the next, with Mrs.
M. Cohn, in "Before and After Marriage,"
which were excellently portrayed, and
Mrs. M. Cohn's martyr-like expression
when she found herself compelled to
"steer alone," was very amusing and was
greeted with great applause.
The second part of the performance,
"The Minstrel Show," was as much a
general surprise as was a complete success
and thorough amusement.
The end men. Mr. Mike, and Mr. Henry
Drucker, could not be distinguished from
regular professional minstrels, and with
Mr. A. Goldstand aj center man, could not
be better, judging by the roars of laughter
and continuous applause of the audience.
Mr. Goldstand's solo was fine and much
appreciated, while the pathetic rendering
of "Rock-a-bye Baby," by Mrs. M. W.
Levy, was very sweet and apropos. "Little
Annie Rooney," too, was effectively and
prettily sung by Mrs. Jacks. Mr. Levy's
speech, as Cnauucey M. Depew, was good,
very, very good, and Mr. Hess' puns
equally so. Tho occasion and fun will
long be remembered.
In conclusion, the Entre Nous society
begs to tender its very kindest thanks for
the able assistance rendered by Mr. Mike
aud Mr. Henry Drucker, Mr. A. Gold
stand, Mr. A. Hess and Mr. M. W. Levy,
with assurances that their kindness and
exertions are most heartily appreciated
THE WIIV OF THU DELAY.
The Wichita Electric Railway company
has been greatly delajed in putting in the
system by inability to get all the material.
For some days it has been impossible to
make any headway at the station owing to
the inability to get steam pipe. The en
gine for steam power is set and with pipe
three or four days would find the engine
completed ready for the work. Two dy
namos each one hundred hor&e power are
in position ready for business. This will
bo enough to run tho entire system, but
one more dynomo one hundred horse power
is expected to arrive within a few days.
The dynamo at the plow works a one hun

side station is an eighty horse. These will
be brought to the central station, but the

The company is having some trouble
with the ten cars ordered at Kansas City.
The cars have been completed but do not
conform to the contract aud hence some
trouble about acceptiug them. Tho very
best car known w.ts ordered, but in some
features tho job does not conform to tho
specifications. The management does not
want to pay first class prices and get
second class cars. It is not known yet
what w'll be the result. In the event the
order is placed with another company
there would undoubtedly be a delay of
some mouths yet, which is a bad feature.
Tho company has on hand about all the
motors and are delayed in receiving the
body of the cars.
The receipts of live stock at the Union
stock yards for the past week has been
cattle. 1,723; hog3, 5,214, against 2,114 cat
tle and 4,0S9 hogs for the week previous.
Tho shipments were 1,200 cattle, 3,479
hogs. The cattle receipts show a decrease,
but the hog receipts increased 1,125. The
quality ot the hogs has been better tho
past week than for some weeks past. The
price paid has been a little in advance of
that of week before last, but has declined
5 to 10 cents in the last two days. The
market of the past week has been more
satisfactory to country bu'ers than the
one just prior, being active most of the
time and steady. The increase in receipts
show that country shippers regard this
market with favor as compared to Kauas
City, being nearer to them and con'-e-quently
they suffer le-vs from shrinkage on
stock and have les freight to pay. The
showing made by the Wichita live stock
market will compare favorably with that
made by any now market in the middle or

Wichita, Kas., Oct. 26, 1SS9.
I have a matter to present to the young
men of Wichita, which I believe would in
terest them. I cordially invite all the
young men of the city, not otherwise en
gaged, to meet with my class at the First
M. E. church this (Sunday) afternoon at
2:30. We wrill consider the matter of
which I speak at that time,
Last Wednesday, Oct. 22, Mr. J. F. Mc
Vay of Wichita, and Lizzie Miller, of
White Water, were united in marriage at
the home of Mr. and Mrs. Charlie Grimes,
in the Fletcher block, by Judge Buckner.
Mr. McVayis a young man of high stand
ing, connected with the lirm of Young
Bros., and has lived in this city for a num
ber of years. Miss Miller is one of the
most prominent society ladies of White
Water, Kan. After the ceremony was
performed au elegant supper was served.
Only the most intimate friends of the con
tracting parties were present. Some
beautiful presents were received. The
happy couple will make their home in
Wichita aud reside in the Fletcher block.
NOIjAWFOR park iiom5.
There was some discussion yesterdny
about park bond matters. The council
had decided to submit to the people the
proposition to vote $20,000 bonds for the
purchase of the Greiffenstein park and an
investigation by some of the attorneys
results in the opinion tnat there is no pro
vision in the state law granting the city
power to vote an indebtedness for that
purpose. Should this bo accented as the
law, then it will be considered useless to
have the bond proposition voted upon.
This, according to one concerned in the
matter, calls for some legislation. Consid
erable advantageous legislation re.ating
to cities of the first class was passed at the
last session of the legislature and more is
thought to be in demand this year.
The Possibilities of Kansas and espe
cially of the Arkansas valley for fruit
seem as yet but little appreciated or under
stood. Such peaches as have reached our
table this season were never surpassed by
any country. Grapes never fail. This
year for the first time since the settlement
of the country grapes were cut somewhat
by au unusual late frost. Now Mr. Joseph
Starr sends us eleven apples that fill a
basket which holds about a peck, or forty
four apples to the bushel. They are the
Rome Beauty, we should judge. Every
apple is sound, perfect in form and the
most highly colored. In his note to us he
asks "who can beat them?" We con
fidently answer, no one. He says he has
already picked over one hundred bushels
of this same sort this fall.
