As Jllgh Up tn the Air as tlic Court House
A citizen property holder, writes us a
letter on the elevator and grain storage
question which is not published because it
is too extreme in its criticism. We agree
with much that he says and concede all the
importance of the matter that ho claims,
but we can't admit that anybody is to
blame. The elevator comDanv decided
that Wichita was the best place in the
state at which to attempt tho centration
aud classification of Kansas wheat and
corn and that, sooner or later, Wichita
would become the great grain market, of
Kansas; but, if the effort was made im
mediately it would cost something, cost
a good many number of thousand dollar
bills, to say nothing of the one hundred
and fifty or two hundred thousand dollars
outlay in the construction of elevators and
storage. The elevator company decided
this after carefully looking tho situation
of the grain trade of tho entire state all
over. Their proposition wa a very
straightforward and simple one, based on
business principles, and .-is soon as made
Manager McEnnis left for his St. Louis
home, without so much ns urging or even
asking our people to accept it. The Board
of Trade unhesitatingly endorsed the
proposition and urged the property
holders of the city to meet and
close with it. The committee appointed
to do the work met withnoschuffs or hard
words. Many regretted their inability to
do, but consented to its great importance.
In short, the people of the city were unani
mously of one mind, touching the whole
enterprise. Everybody conceded its im
portance and not a few of our largest
headed and most successful business men
wore enthusiastic over the benefits to be
derived, benefits which would not only
accrue from the expenditure this winter of
such an amount of money in our city, but
the more lasting aud ever increasing bene
fits which would commence with
tho next harvest. Now to have
a citizen come out ' through
these columns reflecting on anybody
would be a wrong. The failure, if it is
such, as he says, cannot be attributed to
either a lack of disposition or want of ap
preciation of our people. The trouble lies
in the times. The benefits to bo derived
have not been denied by any one, and no
one has thrown cold water ou the elevator
and grain market proposition unless nn
acknowledged inability should be so con
strued. To accuse Wichita of any lack of
enterprise would be like finding fault with
the sun for the weakness of its light.
Wichita has accomplished great things in
the past, aud will encompass greater ones
in the future, because she grows stronger
and will have greater ability, but these
times are times that come to every com
munity when it is found too burthensome
to meet the common every day necessary
There are other points in which we do
not agree with our correspondent, who,
even if he knows of the vast amount of un
selfish labor that has been performed by
individuals belonging to that board of
trade, must know of ono at least, who has
not seriously expended himself, and that
that one is he who would criticize others.
The great bulk of the grain of southern
aud central Kansas, which is to find a
market through the Gulf exportation of
the future, will be centered, stored, classi
fied and sold at Wichita, ere it makes its
final start via Galveston, Memphis or New
Orleans. The sooner Wichita is prepared
for this work the sooner will its
advantages to the grain raisers of this
state be realized. All agree to this, and
all being agreed there is only left the work
proposed by the elevator company, the suc
cess of which the EAGLE is not dispaired
even yet. True, as "Fault Finder" says,
"There are a hundred men in tin's cit3
who could cause the walls of a grain ele
vator to go sailing away up into the air as
high as the court house steeple, when
mills would follow to make export flour,"
and so on, and so on, but five hundred, aye
five thousand other men will as directly
proportionately benefitted, why not call on
the five hundred or the five thousand each
for a little lift.
No, the Eagle is enlisted for tho war on
the elevator and storage and grain market
quustion, aud it cannot be discouraged

importnce before large property owners

can raise such celery as the cluster sent us

SOLID MEN ON A SOLID PLACE.
A Declaration of Principles and a Central Com
mittee Selected to Give Some Attention
to local Affairs.
THE NON-FLUSHING FLUSH TANKS.
Some ThlnK1 That Are as Patent as tbcyare
The unanimous sentiment expressed by
the members of the Kansas City Com
mercial club in their visit to this city the
other evening, was that Wichita was the
most solidly and substantially built city
of all the cities they had visited on their
excursion, some forty or fifty places in all.
President Patterson declared that Wichita
even with much less prestige than she
rightfully boasts; was too great and too
solidly built ever to go back, but that she
must go forward, and that to see the place
was to be convinced. While no one know
ing aught of Wichita will question the
correctness of Col. Pattersons declara
tion there is another fact of
equal importance to those who are inter
ested in this city or contemplate becoming
interested, aud that is Wichita has more
people, has a greater amount of taxable
value and does a greater aggregate busi
ness for the price of her property than any
city in the west or probably in the coun
try anywhere. What is meant, is taking
Wichita in all her present proportions aud
with all her prospects, property of all
kinds is selling cheaper than in any city
of like size, east or west, and proportion
ately cheaper than towns of a greater or
of a less magnitude as the case might be.
In short Wichita has been so sifted of all
surplusage, so shook down and settled
that there is only left the practical ma
terials .and the genuine elements. The re
bound from inflation has beeu to that ex
tent that property is as much too
low a it was at one time
too high. The pendulum swuug
to the limit of the arc, but it has swung
back just as far in the other extreme, and
if ever there was money, and big money in
Wichita investments, there is bigger and
surer money now.
These facts are generally appreciated by
our people. They feel it in their bones that
the reaction has beeu much greater
than the continually increasing business
warranted. There has not been in five
years such a decree of confidence upon the
part of our people in all that pertains to
the cit j as there is today. They are now,
and have been for several months past,
utterly indifferent to all lugubrious talk,
from whatever source, for, in spite of the
financial rockets east, and of the stringent
markets west, and depression everywhere,
Wichita is moving upward in every way, in
every particular and make her interests
and enterprises. Everybody seeing and
understanding this, there has come a con
fidence which is most encouraging and re
assuring. Still Wichita is a case of tho
mot magnificently built city in the state,
replete with all modern municipal facili
ties and metropolitan appliances, with tho
liveliest business streets, the costliest pub
lic buildings, and yet the cheapest prop
erty of any city of half its size in the
How long this state of things will last
probably nobody know. And so far as
Wichita's real prosperity is concerned it
probably make little or no difference. But
some day, sooner or later, one or two or a
dozen men of money from the outride
will measure up thesituation and not only
invest in lots and in business houses and
in resident properties, but they will just
ns surely tell others of the opening, when,
in the absence of fool addition speculators
Wichita will not only steadi'y but un
ceasingly move upward in her realty
The sewer contractors hope to finish
their contract by the last of this year.
They have yet about S00 feet of pipe to put
down, and the patentee of the flush tanks
has not yet made the tanks work satisfac
tory. The trouble appears to come from
the inability of the apparatus to throw
out all the water in the tank at one time.
The water is allowed to reach tho tank
very slow and not as rapidly as had been
expected by the patentee, which is given
as an explanation of the trouble. When
the water iu the tanks reaches a certain
point the outflow only equals the inflow
which is not much of a "flush." The pat
entee is expected to be on hand next week
and claims to have some changes to make
which will overcome present diilicnlties.
The sewer contractors claim the appara
tus was adopted by the council and they
contracted to put it in. They add that
they are not under contract to make the
apparatus do the work expected, but sim
ply to put it in according to the plans of
the city engineer.
The trouble reported from some parts of
the city from the sewer system, it is
thought, -will be overcome as soon as the
flush" tank trouble is overcome. In event
of a failure to do this it is thought the an
noyance will increase.
The delegates elected a the Republican
mass meetings in the city Tuesday night
last met last night in "Peerless Hall" and
selected members of a central committee
to take into consideration city politics.
The meeting last night was earnest and
the resolutions adopted may give an idea
of what all wanted and were hoping far as
they were adopted by a unanimous vote
There was no effort at anything but busi
ness and it is presumed the members of
the convention especially invite the public
to observe closely the central committee
selected to look after tho best interests
of the city and in the line of its officials.
The convention was called to order by
Mr. E. T. Allen, chairman of tho
county Republican central committee and
Mr. John Congle moved Col. M. Stewart
be made chairman, which prevailed, and
the chairman took hi seat amid applause.
In accepting the honor CoL Stewart said
he did not think a speech was in order
from him, but the object of the conven

Mr. Adams moved that in case of a va
cancy in any ward, the delegates present
be authorized to fill vacancies, which pre
vailed. A recess of ten minutes was taken to
await on the committee ou resolutions.
The roll of delegates was called and tho
followiug resolution was adopted:
Resolved, That a central committee for
this city be selected by th's body, consist
ing of two Republicans from each voting
precinct iu the cit-, to hold tiieir ollices
until their successors are selected.
The committee on resolutions through
its chairman, Mr. John W. Adams, re

Yet, while abundant party interest is dis
played in county, state, and national af

political organizations are so often and so
unfortunatily negligent of their duty in
matters of local and municipal concern.

Senator Bcntley yesterday received a
letter from Joplin, Ma, conveying tbe sad
intelligence of the death of Will Morrow,
of tbe mercantile firm of Wilson, Morrow
& Kendrick. of Bentley, this county. The
firm had recently opened a store in Joplin
and Mr. Morrow was superintending the
unloading ami shelving of their new stock
at that point. The firm of Morrow &
Kendricks was well known in Maize.
where they wore merchandising for sever
al years, i-ortaepast year toe linn of
Morrow & Kendrick carried on business
in Bentley, operating a general store. Lat
terly they associated with themselves Mr.
O. L. Wilson: and the new firm carried on
a most successful business at Benley, their
business extending largely over the north
western portion of Sedgwick county.
Will Morrow was a young man of strict
integrity and careful business methods.
He was known to every man, woman and
child in Eagle township. He took an act
ive interest in Sanday school and church
work ami was highly esteeraed by all who
knew him. Mr. Morrow w&s a siagie mmm

great and well managed business enter
prise. We believe that honest, efiicency
and absolute fidelity to the public interest
should be the foremost consideration in
the selection of men for muuicipal office;
and we are firmly of opinion that this end
can be, aud will be, more readily subserved
through intelligent and responsible party
action in the nomination, selection and
support of candidates for tbe various city
ollices than by the accidental and fre
quently unforsecn results of a contest be
tween self-nominated candidates for pub
lic position. a
We believe that the time has fully come
when the Republicans of Wichita should
ortrnnize for earnest and effective work iu
behalf of good and economical administra
tion in every branch of our city govern
ment, and "this is the sole object of the
With this end in view, therefore, and
niacins; ourselves in harmony with puri
Republican principles, we call upon all
Republicans, who believe in an honest aud
ellicient city administration and that the
servants of the hj pie shall be responsible
to some party lor their conduct, to join
with and uphold this organization.
But it U intended, and intended solely,
to make it easier for men who have the
full confidence of the people to be elected
to city ollices, and if possible, to insure
tliat all men so chosen shall be not only an
honor to the party which selects them, but
n credit to the people whom they serve;
ami we invite all Republicans of every
shade of opinion who believe the prnci

to carry them into effect.
