nallowcll and Senator Iionc at Cheney
and Goddard Enthusiastic Township
Col. Ilallowell spoke to a big crowd yes
terday afternoon at Cheney, and a big
crowd last night at Goddard. At the
Cheney meeting A. S. Marble was chair
man, and at Goddard, Jacob Rhodes. Both
meetings were quite enthusiastic, and at
Goddard the meeting was the largest ever
hold in the town, as claimed by the lead
inn citizens of the vicinity. The colonel's
speech was often interrupted, and especial
ly was there enthusiasm when tho docu
ments were read giving the lie to the false
statements of some red-nosed brazen liars
who spoke at Goddard a few evenings ago.
State Senator Long, of Medicine
Lodge, was the second sneaker.
and was quite equal to the occasion in
keeping up the enthusiasm. Among the
attractive features is his diagnosis of Jerre
Simpson from a political standpoint. He
shows how many parties he lias belonged
to within the last five years aud a few of
the things he has advocated aud recalls his
many efforts to get office wherever he has
been. This is not only interesting but
quite amusing and are proved to be true
by documents from well known Democrats
who are engaged in business in Barber
county. The people are after some facts
and Senator Long is supplying the de
mand. IX GYFSUM TOWXSHIP.
A magnificent meeting was held at the
Franklin school house in Gypsum town
ship last evening. W. H. Hensley never
does things by halves. He had thoroughly
advertised the meeting, and when the
speakers arrived the woods was full of en
thusiastic Republicans. From the number
ot vehicles aud horses and crowds of people
surrounding the school house one would
have concluded a camp meeting was in
Mr. Hensley promptly called the meet
ing to order at 7:30 o'clock aud called Mr.
Wiflis Boycr to the chair, who said that
although ho was an excellent speaker, yet
he would not detain the meeting by a
speech. Tho people had assembled to have a
Republican love feast, and ho thought it
best to begin at once. He introduced Mr.
A. M. Sturdovant. who spoke for more
than an hour and a half. Mr. Sturtevant
alluded to tho Alliance in Indiana, and
said that they had kept out of politics;
that they nominated no ticket and, there
fore, kept their organization intact. He
then spoke of the Republican party as the
friend of the farmer. He reviewed the
legislation of the last congress: the law
against trusts and combines; the silver
bill. In speaking of this bill ho showed
how that under that bill tho issue of legal
tender notes would go on at the rate of $G,
000,000 per month until stopped by further
legislation by congress; he spoke of the anti
lottery bill, as having been enacted in
response to tho wish of the people. He
also referred to the fact that the Knights
of Labor had secured a law making eight
hours a legal day's work in all govern
ment employ. He paid a splendid tribute
to Col. Hallowell and John J. Ingalls, and
said that tho Republicans of Sedgwick
county would not be the men to forsake
either of these meu. They were splendid
Republicans. In referring to Col. Hallo-
well h said that Col. Hallowell had been
nl,n 1 ...:.!. .. I -.-..- 1- 1
i-imij,tu niiu uui imjiilijii ijulu Illiiuu uy
lnm in Indiana. He learned that the note
was pavable to man by the namo of E.
Barnes, who was a' member of the
Knights of the Golden Circle, aud
was ono of the men that burned
the Hallowell mill by which Col.
Ilallowell lost all he had in tho world, and
Col. Hallowell ought not to pay it, and
that tho note had a credit on it of $125
which did not appear on the note used
ngninst him, he said that if Jerry Simpson
had to bo defeated by such fraud as that
ho wouid not help to defeat him nnd ho
didn't think Republicans would be de
ceived by any such Alarmist clap trap.
Mr. Sturdevant closed his bpeech amid
Mr. P. Rohrbaugh was then introduced
and spoke for more than an hour. He
spoke of tho hard times nnd short crops as
a cause of discontent, which produced tho
farmers political moro and that this vast
body of men constituting 03 per
cent of tho people of Kansas,
meeting in every school house
aroused an ambition in the breasts of a lot
of men who were disgruntled and sore be
cause they could not get office in the old
parties, aud saw a favorable ODportunity
to ride into office, who at ouce set about
to drag the Alliance into politics, and in
nine cases out of ten these Alliance leaders
and oratois wero such men. Ho asked
the farmer to look about him and see if
this was not true. He said no free people
would submit to have their political rights
passed on in a secret caucus. Such a politi
cal organization is a dangerous instru
ment in a free government, nnd no people
will be more averse to them than the farm
er All laws must be for tho whole people
and nothing is more calculated to array
tho public auaiust the Alliance movement
than this. Mr Rohrbaugh referred to tho
creation of a commissioner of agriculture
aud the appropriation of $20,000 a j-ear for
ten years to each state for the improve
ment of agriculture.
He then discussed tho county ticket and
compared it with the two other tickets in
the county. He i-nid no Republican could
afford to vote against thee men as there
was not one of them who was not fully
competent and trustworthy. Ho then
compared Jerry Simpson and Colonel Hal
lowell and eulogized Colonel Hallowell for
his record as a soldier and civilian nnd
said the Republicans of the Seventh dis
trict would send him to congress nnd re
turn John J. Ingalls to the senate. Mr
Rohrbaugh amused the audience with
anecdote illustrating the points in his
speech, and the meeting closed with cheers
for Hallowell nnd the Republican ticket.
No moro enthusiastic meeting has been
held in the connty. The people started
home hallowing for HallowelL
After the meeting Mr. Sharp, tho presi
dent of the Alliance, undertook to explain
why Col. Hallowell was represented as a
jackass, and Lieut. Means said they under
stood the matter and they regarded it as a
direct insult to the old soldier.
Put Gypsum township down solid.
OHIO TOWNSHIP JIEETIXG.
Judge H. C. Sluss and W. L. Sturdevant
addressed a large and appreciative andi
enco of Republicans at Baneville last eve
ning. The meeting was considered by all
a splendid success, and as giving assurance
that Ohio township would do herself proud
on Tuesday next.
Ed Phillips' representation of the Eighty
third district was present and responded
to a call with a brief speech. His friends
are numerous in Ohio township.
John Deal, a 15-year-old boy, was found
yesterday morning at Fifteenth street
and Mead avenue unconscious. He was
taken to his home near by aud a physician
called, who found that the skull had been
fractured. He had been horseback riding
aud it is supposed ho was thrown off,
and In this way received his injuries. He
failed to recover consciousness and died
at 3 p. m. yesterday.

Tell the falntlns soul In tho weary form.
There's a world of tho purest bliss.
That Is linked as tho sSal and form are Jinked
Uy a co ered bridged to this.
Yet to reach that realm on tho other shore
We must pa-vs through a transient gloom.
And most walk unseen, unnelpud. and alone
Through that covered bridge the tomb.
But we all pass over on equal terms.
For tho universal tol I
Is tbe outer garb, which the hand of God
Has flung around the souL
Though the eye is dim, and the bridge Is dark
And the rl er it spans is wide.
Yet faith points through to a shinlne court
That looms ea tho other side.
To enable our feet in tho next days' march
To Christ, up that golden ridge.
We must all lie down for one night'3 rest
Inside of the covered bridge.
A SOCIAL. GATHEKIXG.
A crowd that was congregating on the
walk at the corner of Oak street and Fifth
avenue was a subject which aroused the
curiosity of the passer-by, for people were
coming from all quarters and stopping on
the corner, and wagons of all kinds were
stand iug near with every sign of a readi
uess to start for something or somewhere.
The main part of the company seemed to
be acquainted with each other and making
ready for some undertaking. In the midst
of the wanderers was onemore wise than
his fellows and startled his associates with
the remark: "Why yes; this is a Baptist
crowd." His remark was true for the
crowd composed of members of Emporia
Avenue Baptist church and congregation.
The question was asked by many. "Why,
what is up?" The laws of the Medes
and Persians did not prohibit an
answer at this end of the line
so those wishing to know were told that
there was to be an old fashioned surprise
given to some of our friends, W. B. Jones
and family. Now the company, which
numbered about seventy-five, were allowed
to get into the wagons and buggies and
proceed peacefully on their way to South
Hillside avenue. Mr. Jones, not having
been informed of the gathering, was not
let into the secret until all were there, so
the four wagons and seven buggies were
kept together and all were standing about
the house when the Jones showed up to
get their invitation to the entertainment.
After Mr. Jones had been thoroughly
assured that no one had escaped on the way
down, the company were allowed to disem
bark and every one started out for a good
time. There were a few drawbacks. Mr.
and Mrs. Jones didn't have on their holi
day attire aud Miss Alice was obliged to
forego the pleasure of spending
her evening in the pursuit of
knowledge, and Mrs. Jones hadn't "killed
the calf" nor even a chicken (and there
was a minister in the company, and said
they were short on regular rations. But
these seeming hinderances were soon for
gotten by the happy company. Mature

evening and a beautiful moon and a
cloudless sky and had warmed the air so
that it was a delightful time for out

echoed and re-echoed with their merry
laughter. Others of the company watched
tho games or passed the evening in the
house and on the porches visiting and
singing. Mrs. Helen Carlton presided at
the piano, and furnished the music for the
There were certain misterious
ing objects in the kitchen
were a source of much
incut on the part of a
lew of the curious, aud when the ladies got
their heads together and commanded or
der to appear out from the confusing mys
teries there was developed as fine a lap
lunch as the most fastidious could desire.
The lunch consisted of coffee, sandwiches,
cakes, fruits, and all the other nice little
things that are required to make a fine
lunch, nnd which the ladies know so well
how to provide. Some good, thoughtful
soul had provided a chicken all dressed
and cooked in fine shape, so the chicken
part of tho company was seen with at
least a bone.
A register was provided aud the follow
ing names were found registered: Rev. J.
B. Reynolds, pastor of the church, Mrs. C.
B. Reynolds and Miss Iva, Mr. and Mrs.
C. A. Wright and daughter Miss Jennie,
Mrs. A. Adams, Miss Maud Adams, W. H.

At a seasonable hour the company start
ed for home, everyoue was glad they came
and to say the gathering was a success is
speaking it in a mild way. Everyoue was
happy and considered the time well em
ployed. The members of the church and congre
gation expect to enjoy many good, social
times in the future. The pastor and his
wife like to see all enjoying themselves
and help on the merry making.
Mr. and Mrs. Jones invited all to come
A MASS MEETING.
A Republican mass meeting was held in
the A. M. F. church on North Water
street and goodly number of citizens at
tended. On motion, L. D. Roberson was
called to the chair, and T. G. Banks, secre
tary. After which tbe chairman states tbe
object of tthe meeting which had met was
for the purpose of instructing the Repub
lican voters in the coming election. Mr.
S. E. William and J. H. Moore made quite
a lengthy speech upon the issue of the day,
etc, and Mr. J. J. Jennings said this was
one of the most important campaigns in
the history of the Republican party. He
said there was no ResubmisMonist party
in the field, but they are out and out
Democrats and was trying blindly to lead
the colored voters.
Oliver L. Boyd spoke likewise.
Mr. Hupp was then introduced and
quoted a brief history of the present gov
ernor of the state of Kansas, L. C
Humphrey. Mr. Hupp also out lived
some of the inferior traits of Charles
Robinson aud his official character as gov
ernor of the state of Kansas.

THE CATHOLIC FAIR.
The Catholic fair was largely attended
last evening nnd the ladies having the
matter in charge were quite well pleased
over the finance part of it. The visitors
were quite willing to leave a few dimes
with the little girls who were so greatly in
earnest for votes. The vote getting was
one of the enthusiastic features.
GENERAL CALDWELL TO.NIGHT.
General J. C. Caldwell, one of the great
est orators in Kansas, will address the Re
publicans of this city this evening at the
court house corner. Main aud First streets.
General Caldwell has a nntional reputa
tion as a public speaker and is thoroughly
posted on the issues of the campaign. The
hall is comfortably furnished with chairs
and no doubt a large crowd will be present.
The denomination of Christian people
known a3 German Baptists (commonly
called Dunkards) will hold religious ser
vices in Fairmount college each day and
evening from the 129th insc, at 10 o'clock a.
m. and 7:30 p. m. until the 2d of November.
On Saturday, the 1st of November, they
will hold a love feast, when the ordinances
of feet-washing, the Lord's supper and the
communion will be observed. These ser

The Y. P. S. C. E. of the Central Christ
ian church is preparing for another of its
uniqne socials, which will be given on
Hallowe'en, at the church on Market
street. The menu appeared in Sunday's
Eagle and is attracting much attention,
as the language of the program is un
known, and thus far no interpreter is
found. The young people, however,
promise that 'one, who understands the
ianguage of Hallowe'en spirits, will be at
the church Friday evening and explain
the wonderful menu. Those Interested
should not fail to come and enjoy an even
ing of pleasure.
The Eagle has just done a neat job of
lithographing for Olivet Congregational
chuch. A thousand engravings have been
issued, on cardboard, 18x16 inches in size,
designed for framing. The design is a
scroll. The subejet Is based on chap
ter xiii. First Corinthians, and reads:
"The most excellent grace: Love and ita
manifestations." Beneath the central and
most prominent word "Love" are named
the graces which are called the manifesta
tions of the all-inclusive grace of Love, as
suggested in the scripture by which the de
sign is suggested, thns:
'Patience 'Love sufferetb Ion?.'
"Kindness 'And is kind, " etc
The encraving will attract attention as
a happy way of making prominent a beau
tiful scripture passage, and as showing
the artistic taste of the EAGLE engraver, as
well as skill in execution.
The young people of the West Side give
a grand ball this evening at Schiller halL
The music for the occasion will be fur
nished by the Sandford orchestra and the
occasion will no doubt be a most pleasant
one for all present.
AN UNFORTUXATE TVOMAX.
Yesterday morning about 5 o'clock, Mr.
Robert Ashten, who lives on Kellogg near
Mead avenue, was aroused by some one
near his house. On investigation he found
a woman who seemed to be helpless and
she was taken within and cared for, with
in an hour giving birth to a boy.
Yesterday the woman stated that her
name .was Mrs. Martha Martinson and
Tuesday night she arrived here from Ft.
Scott en route to Geneso. She had loft
the depot for a hotel and sho remeinbrred
nothing until about noon yesterday. It is
supposed she wandered around town all
night. Some parties saw a woman ou the
streets very late at night.
She seemed to be a very nice weman,
but in almost destitute circumsances and
her husband died two weeks age.
SALYIXI ATCnAWFOHD'S GRAXD.
The Boston Transcript says: "Mr.
Salvini's performance once seen will al
ways be remembered. Eyery line, every
gesture, every movement of his body, in
fact every little detail, tells jf somtthing
more than hard study, something aliin to
genius. It would be hard indeed to
imagine a performance approaching nearer
to ones ideal of the character than this
impersonation of Mr. Salvini's "
Alexander Salvini and his fine dramatic
company will appear at Crawfords Grand
on next Monday nnd Tuesday nights in
"A Child of Naples," a new play written
especially for him by Horace Townsend,
a New York journalist. The amusement
public of Wichita have a treat before
them, as this comnany of players is rarely
seen outside of New York and Boston.

The squatter who had "jist drapped in
ter ax fur er leetle manerfac chawin' ter
baccer" watched the boys as they lit their
cigars but declined to smoke one. He pro
duced a clay pipe, and filled it with "sto to
baccer" given him by one of the crowd. Af
ter lighting his pipe and smoking silently
for a few minutes he began.
"Hit's mighty nigh thirty veer sence I
rid ther mail f'om PeterviUe ter ther p'int.
I was on'y er boy 'bout 12 yeer ol'f an' I
didn have as much sence as er spring
chicken. I'd git inter ther p'int at night
an' stay tell nex' day. Onst I was thar
jist afo' Chrisnius. I was er standin' in
front uv er stable whar I kep iner pony.
Fo' boys 'bout mer size come er long.
"They axed me whar I come f'om an
whut I was er doin'. I tol' 'cm. All uv
'em was er smokin' uv seegyars, an' one of
'em he 'lowed ter me, s'se, 'Does you
smoke?' An' I said, s'l, 'Yea, I smoke,
but I hain't got nary er pipe.' Then he
says ter one them yether boys, s'se, 'Dick,
give 'im one er them leetle red seegyars uv
your'n.' Dick says, s'se, 'All right,' an'
he banded bit ter me an' 'lowed, 'Hit
won't draw good at fust, but soon as hit
gins ter sizzle hit'll be bully.'
"He tetched hit with ther fire eend uv
his secgyar an' I pat hit in mer mouth.
Hit wouldn't draw, no matter how bard I
pulled. Bimeby hit etarted to sizzle.
Dick says, s'ge, 'Pull hard, greeny,' an I
polled a heap. .lis then hit 'sploded, an I
dropped, skeered mighty nigh plum ter
"The boys they runned off er langhin',
but I was too skeered ter do anythin but
holler, an' you bet I hollered. A man run
up an' says he, 'Wbar yer hurtP 1 told ira

A Clilcui;o l-.plioite.
One of Chicago's social stars has the rep.
utation of being c-old and haughty and
"snobbish" with those who do not like
her, while thoso favored with a close ac
quaintance say it is only a mannerism. Be
it mannerism or snobbishness, the star pre
fers never to know people outsido of her
own individual "set," and lives up to these
rules as much as possible, even carrying it
out, where accepting invitations to large
receptions that embrace numerous sets.
One time at a large reception not so very
long ago tho wife of a very prominent man
who had been spending her time abroad
for several years met this exclusive star
for the first time since her return.
Having known her intimately in tht
years before, she went up to her in the most
cordial way, and holding out her hand
said: "now do you do, Mrs. . I am
very glad to sec you." Mrs. stared at
her in the coldest manner for an instant,
and finally said, "Madame, you have the
advantage of me." This lady, whoso so
cial position is unquestioned by right of
birth and marriage, flushed, and then said
very quietly, "Yes, I think I haro by
birth, by education and socially. " Chi
Two Vlgmj Engines.
The smallest engine we have any record
of is that made by D. A. Buck, of Water
bury, Conn. The engine, boiler, govemoi
and pumps ail stand on a space 7-16 of ar
inch square and aro about of an inch
high. The engine has 143 distinct parts,
held together by 52 screws. Three drop
of water fill the boiler to overflowing.
The diameter of tho cylinder is 1-26 of an
inch: tho length of stroke, 3-32 of nn inch.
The whole engine weighs but 3 grains, not
including base plate
Levi Taylor, an ingenious mechanic of
Indianola, la., has constructed an engine
almost equal to the Watcrbury wonder
This pigmy was on exhibition at the Cen
tennial at Philadelphia in 1S70. It U built
on a twenty-five cent gokl piece, the whole
outfit weighing but a fraction over three
grains. It must have been quite a contrast
to the enormous Corliss engine wheii on
exhibition in the name building. Taylor's
engine, while not as email ns that made by
the Waterbury mechanic, Ls a wonder that
will be better appreciated when tho reader
is informed that it would take lid nuch en
