THAT BRICK SCHEME.
The city council should understand, and
most emphatically, that the property
owners on Douglas avenue -want no
monkey business from outside or inside
speculators and jobbers. All talk of a
brick pavement for any street which has
to bear the traffic of Douglas aveaue is
uouesense, if human experience goes
for anything There are only
two kinds of pavement that
are pavements for such streets and those
are granite or asphalt. Brick, on a con
crete base, would last but little longer
than did the fraud jasperite. Granite, we
cannot afford. The asphalt proposition
does away with any and all possibilities
of our having to pay for the pres
ent failure, and as the asphalt
meets with the best judgment of the
a large majority of those who will have to
foot the bills, they most assuredly do not
desire that the council should for a
moment be influenced by either outsiders
who see a chance to cet in an oar, or by
insiders who do not own frontage on the
street in question. The solid men of the
street by a large majority over their own
signatures have spoken and that ought to
settle it. The only thing to do is to gee
the lowest possible price and the best pos-
smie guarantee ana then get to work
throwing out the present failure and put
ting in the Asphalt at the earliest possi
In the case of the State vs Burke John
son and Murphy who were inaicted for
robbing a fellow prisoner by the name of
Yarnoff cm last Christmas eve, while they
were all confined in the city jail, some in
teresting facts were disclosed by the evi
dence. Rohrbough & Rauch appeared
for the prisoner and drew out on cross
examination the fact that about twenty
prisoners were confined in the city prison
at the time and were all more or less
drunk on white line (alcohol) which was
furnished through the window by out
side parties; that two kangaroo courts
were held the day on which VarnofE was
convicted of violating the prison rulet,
was fined 50 cents each time and searched
by the officers of the court. The fine not
being found on his person, he was cowhed
(whipped with a strap) once and the sec
ond time while being searched Varnoff
was robbed of ?15. Johnson was judge,
Murphy was sheriff and Burke was one of
the jurors in thi3 kangaroo court. The
prisoners have prosecuting at
torney, jurors ana all necessary
officers of the court. The evidence
whs not clear enough to convict
the defendents but the jury advised the
court that they believed the defendants
guilty and asked the court to lecture them
whereupon the court in a very earnest
and kindly way advised the prisoners that
the jury had found a Scotch verdict of
"guilty but not proven" and warned them
not to risk such a verdict ag.iin. as the
punishment if they had been convicted
would have been ten years in the peniten
tiary, and told them that the court, the
jury and humanity, held out their hands
to raise them up that society did not de
sire them injury, but wanted to save them
and advised tiiem to go out and be men.
Murphy thanked the court. All the pris
oners seemed deeply affected by the words
of Judge Reed. But it was a close call for
Mrs. Sophia Mills King, a woman whose
refined life of gentleness, whose charitable
lustincts and bright intellectual ways en
deared her to every early settler of this
city, and of people for mnny miles about
this valley, died at the home of her son,
Chester E. King, at Maize, on Sunday
morning, March 6. SophU Mills was
born in Attica, New York, in 1S2S, from
whence she moved with her parents to
Michigan in 1S34: was married to W. H.
King in 1S43 She had seven children,
four only of whom are living. She united
with the Congregational church in 1S51,
and came to Kansas in 1S70. She was a
prominent aud interesting member of the
Old Settlers' society. Her daughter, Mrs.
Spaun, deceased, is remembered by many
of our people for intellectual endowments
and for her wonderfully sweet voice in
song. A daughter of Mrs. Spaun, grand
daughter of Mrs. King, now a young lady,
brought us the intelligence of her grand
mother's death. Peace to the ashes.
Bright will be the memories of many of
the dear old mother that's gone.

A LETTER FKOtt riOFEOR BUCBCB.
A letter was received from Professor H.
J. Barber, formerly of Lewis academy of
this city, in which ho says that Mrs. Bar
ber, who is being treated in a surgical in
stitue, is improving and hopes are now
entertained of her ultimate recovery. He
thanks his Wichita friends for their kind
assistance in securing him him his posi
tion as principal of the High school at
H irper, and says that he is pleased with
his work and the agreeable pupils of his
school: that not a boisterous remark has
been heard in the building. The good dis
cipline he attributes largely to Professor
Cook, now editor of the Seutinel, and who
had been superintendent there for five
years. Harper is rapidly recovering from
the effects of the cyclone and the professor
says it is an almost ideal school town, ow
ing to the absence of temptation in the
form of saloons, gambling houses, etc
The moral element largely predominatf-s
in city affairs. His work will close there
earlier than will the Wichita schools, and
he expects to be able to spend the first
week cf June here, making final arrange
ments for a month of semi-school work at
the world's fair. Two or three pupils
from the Harper schools will join those
who are to go from Wichita.

There are Now Only Thrse or four Candidates
l.eft on the Demo-Pop Ticset.
The poor Demo-Pops are in terrible
straits. The "large, harmonious and rep
resentative convention" that assembled a
few days ago yelled themselves hoarse
shouting victory, not knowing that inside
of forty-eight hours eight of their candi
dates would have seen through the ganzy
scheme they had in view, and resigned.
The two last to leave the old hulk are
Oscar Barns and George Mathews. Mr.
Barns was their candidate for councilman
in the Third ward and Mr. Mathews was
their councilman in the Second ward, both
of whom are good men too good to be
made the cat's paws of the ring that is
trying to capture the court house next
year and everything else in sight. Both
are first-class citizens, old settlers and
men of large business and property inter
ests. Mr. Mathews never wis willing to
serve with them on the ticket while Mr.
Barnes was only willing to serve under
the leadership of Joe Allen, having been a
councilman once before under Mr. Allen's
administration. Both gentlemen request
ed the EAGLF. reporter last night to an
nounce their withdrawal from the
race. Charlie Hatton, nominee for
the school board in the Second
ward may withdraw also. He intimated
this to an Eagle reporter lssc nishc when
he said: "I" am v Republican first, lt3t
and all the time. I never scratched a Re
publican ticket, and probably never wiiL
I voted for even St. John, and I would
probably do so again if he was the regular
nominee of the Republican pirty. I
have full faith in my party, and
have no inclination whatever to
run after strange gods. 1 had
no idea of being the candidate of that con
vention the other day. It is safe to say
that a man who talfcs as Mr. Hatton does
is not willing to allow himself to be made
a tool by the conspirators against the in
tegrity of the Renubltcau p irty. Nobody
need be surprised to hear of Harrah and
Redfield withdrawing. Nothing conld
tempt them away from their party fealty
but slittenng promises of success and
certainly they cannot be so blind now that
they cannot see the complete wreck of
their hopes. It is predicted that before
Sunday no one will be left on the Citizens
Demo-Pop ticket but Judge McCandiess
and Johnnie Rathff.
The Demo-Pops, who had fixed up
such a clever scheme as they saw it are
discouraged, disheartened, confused and
confounded. They are up to their eyes
in the soup and there is
uo way by which they can
gracefully retreat from their ridiculous
and ludicrous position, except withdraw
ing all their candidates and making the
election of the- Republican ticket unani
mous. Four or five missionary commit
tees searched the city yesterday in vain
for a candidate but they met with dis
couragement on every hand. They tried
hard to prevail on A. H. Ward to take the
place, but in vain; tor Ward does
not want to be a second-hand
candidate. They even wanted the
EAGLE reporter to run and by tomorrow
they will probably want Paddy Shea to
take up colors and lead them on.
Later John V. Moffet arrived last night
and had hardly got to the corner of Main
and Douglas when the committee called
on him and wanted to thrust the nomina
tion on him; but he would not give them
a positive answer till after he had heard
from Lewelling, Jim Legats and the
Jasperite pavement suit.

THE O'IjSsaKV IQUEaT.
The coroner's jury in the inque-st of
Clara O'Leary was discharged yesterday
until Stfunl.iy next. Doctors St. John
and Whitlock made an eximinatton of the
body and found the heart in a healthy
condition, although it had been claimed
that she had suffered from diseaa of this
organ. The lungs were somewhat con
gested and the stomach was infUmed. In
it nas found some tissue paper that had
evidently been swallowed with medicine.
The stomach was removed for a chemical
analysis which will be completed by
Saturday. There were no new facts elicit

is still in jail and will be held until the

3IR. .LOMBARD'S FAITH,
Well-Known Financier Has Tafcea all of
His Wlch.t-i Property at the Slarket.
B Lombard, Jr., president of the State
National bank spent tho early part of the
week in the city. Mr. Lombard is reput
ed to be not ouly one of the best financiers
in the country, but he (s also a- very keen
sighted business man who is as cspable of
judging the condition of a community and
the future of a city, as any man financially
interested in the great west. In spetking
with a reporter for the Eagle he advanced
some very valuable ideas about Wichita
"You struck the bottom." said he, "as
all cities do in their career and you have
stood the shock in most excellent
shap. Wichita is now oa the as
cendent and a bright future
is before her. I hare so much confidence
m the future of the city that I have taken
all mv property off the market and I will
not sell a foot of It until the raise comes
and it is much higher than It is now
which will not be very long in my judg
ment. I have estimated the value of every
piece of realty I own in Wichita in
accordance with the standard of prevailing
prices and I have also valued it at what I
think it ought to be worth, considering
what I think the future of the city will be
and I am determined to hold it until It
reaches that sum. I have no fears, as my
faith Is as strong in the future of Wichita
as any. young city I know of
in America. Tnera are some
mortgage companies who are responsible
for the ridicuously low prices of Wichita
property. They obtained city property
when Wichita was in adversity and have
held it low eversinca. The result is, of
coarse, that John Smith can't sell his
property for its actual money value as long
as some mortgage company holds property
next to him at a mach lower figure. The
trouble is some of these companies do not
know what Wichita is or what she is
going to be; if they did they would in
crease the price in accordance with the
progress of the city in the line of prosper
ity, and John Smith would be able to hold
hi3 property at somewhere near its actual
value. If both the home property owners
and the foreign property holders would
stop for a moment and calmly consider
what Wichita will inevitably be in
a few years, property would not be
as low as it is. A blind man can
see that Wichita is not going
to remliin a city of only 5,000 any length
of time. It is only a question of a few
years till she will double her population
and industries and I for one do not pro
pose to sell a city lot for village prices.
Mr. Lombard has $25,000 or $30,000 worth
of property in Wichita aud he razards his
investment fully as safe and more profit
able than that much money invested in
government bonds. It is very encourag
ing to hear him talk on this matter.
IJEGISTEK ANI BE UEADY.
The fact that every one regards the elec
tion of the entire Republican ticket by a
practically unanimous vote as assured
may keep many Republican voters from
registering. This they should not be
guilty of for various reasons. Iu the first
place the greed for spoils is so strongly im
planted iu the hearts of the opposition
that they will resort to anything to gratify
their appetite in that direction, and as the
leaders are tricky and underhanded in
their politics it is better that every
Republican should register and be in a
position to exercise their franchise on the
day of election if found necessary. It is
unquestionably the plans of the opposi
tion, or, at least was, before their cause
became so hopeIes3, to get all their wives
to register quietly and by this means
make a flank movement on the Republi
cans and take them unaware on election
day. This premeditated scheme was
hinted to an EAGLE reporter a few days
ago by a well known Democrat in the fol
lowing lauguage: "We cant," said he,
"do up the Republicans on election day
in this manner. The general
idea is that Democrats do not believe in
woman suffrage anu thi3 lden will lead
the Republicans to believe that the wives
of Democrats will not register. We cn
have a private understanding among our
selves to take our wives to the city clerk's
office on the last day of the registration
and have them registered. By this means
we cannot only outwit the Republicans by
monopolizing the time of the registry
clerk, but we can have more of our
women registered than they can of theirs
to make up the difference between the
Republican majority and the fusion
minority." That they mteadetf to do
this at that time there is no doubt
but whether they intend to carry out their
schemes now, or not, remains to b seen
Republicans cannot afford to take any
Then again, it is necessary for every Re
publican to not only register, but to vote,
iu order to show as large a majf rity as
possible, for the result of the city election J
in Wichita, for various reasons, will at
tract the attention of the entire state. It
is tne heme of Speaker Douglass, and the
home of L. D. Lewelling, and should bs
the home of a railroad commissioner.
The Republican who can, but wont,

some extent, an aider and abettor of the
fusionists and their practices. Don't, fail

fication of the Chamois Hunter of the
Tyrol pleasing the large audience. A
notable feature of the play and one which
attracted mnch applause was the Tyrolean
quartette Imported specially by the man
agement. They are certainly very pleas
ing singers and add a good deal to the
popularity of "Fatherland."
The company will appear at the opera
house again toniaht, and there is no doubt
but what the audience will be still larger
than that of last night.
2IISS NEAIXT STEVENS.
The qualities of Mis Neally Stevenns as
a pianist are purity of tone, strength
without over-straining the capacities of
her instrument, iu fact, a full orchestral
effect, which is broad without being harsh.
Her phrasing is correct and her leading
into different subjects is particularly in
telligent. Fire sue possesss, while, in
contrast, delicacy is another one of her
strong qualities. Her reading of the
elaborate program presented lat evening
was exceedingly varied, according to the
different authors she ha to interpret.
Some went so far as to shout "bravo," an
unusual thing lu the concert rooms in this
country. Miss Stevens will leave Boston
with hosts of friends, and sbe mar rest as
sured that after this she will always have
a reception befitting her fine talent.
Miss Neally Stevens will be at the opera
house Monday night without fail.
