for the Morning and Even

Ingalls, Ady, Strang and Probably Long
Will be the Orators of the
Ex-Senator John J. Ingalls will speak
The Democrats and Populists haTe been
busy during the past two days circulating
the report that Mr. Ingalls will not be
present owing to sickness, but this is like
all the other fake lies reported and circu
lated recently by the fusion element who
know enough to know that every Republi
can demonstration in this city decreases
the chances of the election of their ticket
or any part of ic. They dread Mr. Ingall's
eloquence and logic and hence their desire
to prevent as many as possible from hear
ing him. They have sent out private
orders to nearly all their followers not to
come to hear Senator Ingalls on the pre
tense that a big crowd would injure their
cause; their real reason is to prevent their
people from hearing the distinguished
Kansan. What is the value of a cause
whose patrons are not permitted to hear
Well, notwithstanding their tricks and
tactics Mr. Ingalls will be here before 7
o'clock this morning and will be greeted
by one of the largest crowds ever seen in
Wichita. He will speak in the afternoon
in the open space on North Market street
adjoining the old Turner opera house, or
perhaps what is better known as the old
common pleas court.
The other speakers will be Judge Strang
of Larned, Hon. J. W. Ady of Newton.and
Hon. Chester 1. Long, the bright young
statesman from Medicine Lodge who will
represent the good virtuous people of the
Seventh district in the next congress.
Business men are requested to decorate
their buildings in honor of the event.

ItEV. SMl'IH INSTALLED.
Sunday, Oct. 30, at 4 o'clock p. m., Rev.
George 'R. Smith was duly instated as
pastor of Lincoln Street Presbyterian
church. Rev. S. B. Fleming, D. D., de
livered a very eloquent discourse on the
beautiful life and character of Christ.
In the absence of Rev. Curtis of Belle
Plaine Dr. Fleming acted as moderator.
Dr. Winters of the First Presbyterian
church, in a twenty minutes talk, gave
the charge to the new pastor, full of
wholesome advice and beautiful senti
ment expressed in the eloquent language
this minister has become so justly cele
brated for. In reference to Kansas and
the good people of Wichita, he said: "I
bave found the best and most generous
people it has ever been my good fortune to
meet, and my interests are so closely
allied with t heir's that I have become
thoroughly imbued with western ideas. I
am now a thotougn Kansan."
Rev. Shane's charge to the congregation
was well received. At the close of tho
services the large audience passed in front
of the rostrum to shake bands with the
pastor aud his wife aud welcome them in
their new relations with the church,
which starts out under Rev. Smith's pas
torate free from debt and under auspicious
Thomas Shaw yesterday met with an
accident which might have caused him
severe injury or perhaps even the loss of
his life. He was riding southward on
Topeka when he met a hay wagon coming
towards him. He g.ive more than half the
road to the wagon, but the driver evident
ly did not recognize a bicycle as having a
legitimate right to the road aud kept
straight in the road. As Mr. Shaw came
nearer one of his horses made a plunge
sidewjiys, ranting on its bind legs. Mr.
Shaw, unable to stop so suddenly, ran
under the horse which, coming down, fell
upon Mr. Shaw and the wheel. It was an
exceedingly dangerous position to be in,
and .Mr. Shaw cannot understand how it
was possible for him to escape. He sus
tained no injuries save a badly wrenched
People with teams should bear in mind
that the law recognizes a bicycle as being
entitled to the same privileges to the road
as any other kind of vehicles.
WILL BE ELECTED JsUKE.
Captain Camp of near Englewood was in
towu yesterday doing business at the stock
yards aud incidentally discussed the po
litical situatiou. He stated that Harry
Bone, of Ashland, the Republican nominee
for the legislature, will be elected without
the slightest doubt. Mr. Bone, he states,
is making an excellent campaign into
which be is injecting the life aud vigor of
youth and is rallying all the young men,
regardless of past political affiliations,
around his standard. Mr. Bone is a son
T. P. Bone of this city and is a young
lawyer of ability, integrity, popularity and
promise. He studied law in the ofb.ee of
John A. Murray of Wellington.
TEKECLKslAN MJClhTY MEETING.
The Pereclesians held one of their old

rooms and many new students had a good

Another Chapter of the Great Fake Conspiracy
to Kill Him.
Jerry Simpson is still pursuing his the
atrical politics. He is still planning to be
come a martyr in order to gain the sym
pathy of those righteously indignant con
stituents who have made up their minds
to snow him under a shower of ballots
next Tuesday in punishment for the in
jury be has done them and in atonement
for the sin they committed two years ago
by electing him to the position of chief
laughingstock of the United States of
When he and his friends got up the as
sassination fake one week ago they
thought they had done a smart thing, but
they soon found out to their sorrow that
instead of it getting sympathy it earned
for him what is termed m the parlance of
the day "the horse laugh." It was a gen
uine boomerang, and they recognize it
To offset this they inveuted a second chap
ter which has been prematurely given
away. This act is a feint to attack Jerry at
Wellington on the 4th of this month. The
arranged plan is that while at Wellington
Jerry is to take a stroll around the block
and in a short time io come running
breathlessly into the Arlington hotel with
his hat in his hand and h bullet hole
through it. To give it effect somebody
wai to have fired a shot. The reason Wel
lington was picked out is because there is
an Alliance county attorney there who
may be a very handy man in the con
spiracy. For instance if the plan was ex
ecuted in any other county a Republican
county attorney may take a haud in ths
proceeding and assist in exposing the fraud
for the man who may act the part of the
assassin may be caught and compelled, in
self defense, to expose the dramatic pro
ceeding. In Wellington with County At
torney Pool as prosecuter this could not be
very well done, hence the selection of that
place. Jerry and bis friends are deter
mined at all bazzards to give the assassin
ation fake a color of truth and if his
schemes are not carried out at Wellington
they will be put into effect somewhere
else. At least something will be done in
that direction before the campaign is over.
The first and favorite plan was to have
the scene enacted at Wichita but after
some consideration the conditions existing
were not deemed favorable.
POOLE OF SUMNER.
A County Attorney is Alleged to HaTe Sank to
the Estate of a !px.
County Attorney Poole of Sumner coun
ty was in the city yesterday and, if -what is
told of him is true and it is vouched for
by the very best authority it shows him
to be a man far beneath the office which
he fills, in calibre. According to the story
told an EAGLE reporter last night Poole's
crime is no less thau acting the part of a
political spy to gain whatever information
he could towards ascertaining the secrets
of the opposition. An old story is told
implying that "everything is fair iu love
and war," but politics is not included. If
it were it is doubtful whether It would be
quite right for a public officer, drawing
pay from all political parties, to desceud
to the level of a common spy. Even if it
were fair it would still be an injustice to
the good people of Sumner county, than
whom there are no more honorable citi
zens, as a body, under the sun.
Well, as the story goes, Poole came up
here and passed himself off as a Republi
can, and mingled all duy with a number of
Wichita Republicans as such. He said
that he was couuty. attorney down there,
which is true, but he also said"
that he was elected as a Republican and by
Republican which is not true. Poole
could not be elected by Republicans for
that party is not electing men as public
prosecutors who never lead a law book
before his election and who cannot, today,
conduct the simplest prosecution to save
his mck. In the progress of the conversa
tion Poole said with a cautions look about
him, "Well boys we are all Republicans,
but I don't want to deceive you; Jerry
Simpson will carry Sumner county and
Long will not get a smell." This worried
Mr. Yocum.who hastened to Frank Goode
to tell him the news. Mr. Goode remem
bered something about Poole being an
Alliance man, aud he looked the matter
up to find that he was correct. Mr. Yocum
then went back and Poole had taken to
his heels. His object, no doubt, was to
find ont the Republican plan of cam'
paign, and again to throw a dampener ou
the betting which is going ou iu Long's
chances of carrying Sumner county. Dur
ing the past three or four days lively bet
ting has been going ou to the effect that
Long will carry Snmner county, aud this
has had a disastrous effect on Jerry's
chances down there which it became nec
essary to stop.
Any man who would publicly deny bis
politics is necessarily of a very unenviable
principle, but wheu this man is the prose
cuting attorney of a great county, and his
object to ascertain secrets by false pre
tense, is still worse.
tCAIJbC'tTV OF HOUSES.
The scarscity of dwelling bouses within
a reasonable dfstance of the business cen
ter of the city is something phenomenal.
Two years ago a person found no trouble
iu setting i house auywhere he desired;
today it is practically impossible to find a
suitable dwelling no matter what vigilance
is exercised. The result is that the second
and third floors of business buildings are
in demand and consequently rents are ad
vancing to u handsome paying figure on
the investment involved iu tho building.
The cause of all this is a healthy increase
of population. And this increase is valu
able for the people coming in are unques
tionably people whose avocations are ou
the business streets as indicated by
the demaud for houses near the business
centers. Transfer men and others have
ir formed a representative of the Eagle
that the number of people arriving in the
city to take up permanent habitation is
greater than they have observed at any
time for the past five years. Further in
quiry showed that mostly all the new
comers are from points withm the state
who recognize that Wichita is destined to
be the business and industrial center of
the commonwealth. These are people
whom the general defamation of the state
by the Simpsoii-Peffer combination does
not effect for they know it to be unjusti
fiable aud unfounded.

KICKED Br A HORSE.
A boy named Mosely or Mosby living on
Osage avenue was kicked by a horse yes
terday and is not expected to live. He was
doing chores in the stable and while pass
ing behind the horse the animal used bis
feet most viciousl and not only injured
the boy from bis kicks directly but crushed
him pretty severely against the wall. The
boy is 16 years old and the main support of

The Ancient Order or Unite Worknea At
tend Services at tlie Presbyter
A very able cud interesting anniversary
sermon was preached Sunday moruiug in
the pulpit of the Presbyterian church by
Rev. David Winters, for, the benefit of the
members of the Ancient Order of United
Workmen. Wichita Lodge No. 23 turned
out in a body, and many of Peerless Lodge
Xo. 271 also turned out. Rev. Winters
preached his text from Ephesions, 2nd
chapter and latter part of the 20th verse.
His theme was Christ, the chief corner
stone of human liberty and equality; of
genuine philantrophy wich is known only
to Christianity and of practical holiness
in life. The subject was handled with
earnestness and a feeling of address ap
propriate to the accasiou. Refering to the
order he dwelt upon the obligation of
members and emphasizing the point that
no man could be a member who did not
believe in the fatherhood of God, the
brotherhood of man and that charity ex
emplified by Christ. The attendance was
very large. A prominent feature of the
services was the flue music by the Presby
terian church choir.

A Keport in Circulation Lint Mght Tuat Jerry
!V-9 hliot at Four limes.
Between 12 and 1 o'clock this morning a
report was in circulation that Jerry Simp
son was shot at four times aud missed
each time at Pratt. The report originated
at the dispatcher's office nf the Santa Fe
depot, but when a rep'orter for the Eagle
arrived there the dispatcher had gone
home aud no particulars could be obtained.
He is alleged to have heard it going over
the wires. By reference to Simpson's
dates it tvas ascertaiued that he was billed
for at Pratt last night, so this is the only
connecting link between what might be
termed imagination and fact. The report
is not improbable, as it is certain that the
Demo-pop scheme is to have somebody fire
at Simpson in order to lend color to the
assassination fake gotten up a week ago
by Simpson's managers. And thus the
villification of the great state of Kansas
goes on in the interest of one person at the
expense of $1,400,009.
IIIE BOY'S. AT WOK&
There will be a goodly number of Tery
wratby citizens in town this morning
when they will see the disastrous results
of Hallowe'en. Half a hundred boys were
outduridgthe night and whenever they
found a policemau's back turned to them
they went to work with a vim at
the accomplishment of some trick at the
expense of some unsuspecting man who
was no doubt at the time reveling in the
fond embrace of Morpheus. The last seen
of them by the EAGLE man they were
working on Emporia avenue aud were
working westward. The only consolation
to be derived this morning from the Hal
lowe'en event is that it occurs but once a

The deputy sheriff of Rice county was in
the city yesterday and reported that coun
ty goiug for Long by a intjority of about
300. The same county gave Simpson a
majority of about 700 two yeara ago. KIce
la all right.
The Demo-pops who are now tired of bet
ting on Simpson are circulating a report to
the effect that a prominent banker of the
Seventh district will be here day before
election with io.OOO to bet on Simpson. If
this had not b'.-ea a fusion fake it woul i
nicely illustrate the truth of the old saying
that politics makes strange bedfellows.
