SCHEME IS PLAIN
CONSPIRATORS AGAINST REPUBLI
CAN TICKET UNMASKED.
Xo Jleetlns: Kver Ueld to Nominate the
Citizens Ticket as so Often Alleged by
1U Organ It -was All Done by tlie Peti
tion of the Boss.es ICecorcIs Found In
the Office of City Clerk Federal Offi
cers, Shrrlff'b Officers, UeinocrHtlc and
Pop Committeemen and Workers are
the Chaps "Who Made the Tickets.
The readers of the glimmering organ
of the mongrel ticket have been surfeit
ed with a lot of slush about the big de
mand there was for a citizens ticket in
opposition to the Republican ticket.
Doubtless many of them believed that
what the paper said was true and were
lead into the belief that there really
-rcas a demand for another ticket than
that put out by the Republicans.
Of course the Eagle has told the peo
ple repeatedly that the Citizens ticket
was nominated by a few bosses on the
street corner or in a dark stairway.
This the organ of the mongrel ticket
fcas not denied. The Eagle has been
doping that it would deny it so as to
catch it in a trap but it -was too foxey
and kept on hoodwinking the public by
Eemi-plausible nonsense but always
dodging the challenge of this paper.
A reward was offered a few mornings
ego through these columns for anv
jnan who would find a single line in the
mongrel organ indicating that a single
citizens meeting had been held to nom
inate a Citizens ticket Nobody claim
ed the reward. The mongrel organ was
challenged to state where a meeting had
been held, who were present, who was
chairman, or who was secretary. It
has never accepted the challenge but
has gone on deceiving the people.
Since it will not stand up manfully
and answer questions that would give
the lie to its own statements and Insin
m.tions the Eagle will give the facts
Not a mfem on the Citizens ticket was
nominated by a citizens convention or
a citizens caucus. They were all nomi
nated by petition of the local Demo
cratic and Populistic bosses. The city
clerk's office shows this and if any man
doubts it let him go in there this morn
ing before voting and find out the
Who were the petitioners who nomi
nated these ward tickets? Let the re
cords of the city clerk's office tell. They
ure as follows:
First ward: W. E. Huttmann, who is
Grover Cleveland's deputy revenue col
lector; Jim Derr, the man who brought
charges against Tiger Bill; Harry
Moore, job foreman for the mongrel or
gan; V. J. Christman who holds a job
under Postmaster Frtch, and John Clay
ton. ThO'se are the "non-partisan"(?)
citizens who put out the ticket in the
First ward, every one of them a Democrat-Second
ward: Harry "W. Stewart,
who Is either chairman or secretary of
the county Democratic committee; Dew
Deam, a dyed hi the wool Democrat;
Will Ayre3, chairman of the Populist
county Committee; George Van Wer
den, Democrat; John Young, who is
the brother of the candidate; C. R. Hi
barger, a Democratic clerk in the post
office. Third ward: George P. Locke, assist
ant postmaster; J. N. Haymaker, one
of the Democratic bosses of the county;
James T. Dorsey, the Democratic under
sheriffs; F. J. Arnold, the chairman of
the recent Pop county convention, John
McCarthy, a dyed in the wool Demo
crat; Ben Aldrich, a Demo-Pop; Irwin
Startton, ex-county chairman of the
Pop committee; I. P. Campbell, who
was the Demo-Pop candidate for sen
ator last fall; J. V. Colville. the ex-Pop
superintendent of public instruction.
Fourth ward: Rufus Cone, the Demo
Pop sheriff; Thomas G. Fitch, the
Democratic postmaster; R. A. Sankey,
delegate to the national Top conven
t'on, H. J. Hagney, editor of the Demo
Pop orsran; R. II. Piatt, a Missouri
Democrat; O. Mulvey, the Democratic
ex-city engineer; David and J. M. Ross,
Fifth ward: M. J. Langdon, a Demo
crat; J. W Brown, Pop member of po
lice commissioners under Lewelllng; F.
C. MoCutcheon. a Demo-Pop; George
E. Rogers, a delegate to the Pop con
vention; J. E. Woltz, a Pop.
Sixth ward: G. W. Peters, secretary
of the Populist county central commit
tee; J. H. Engles, J. W. McCarthy. A.
Swezy, Tom Freeman, J. W. Burton, C.
Kunkel, G. E. Atchinson, E. L, Ewing
and Henry Schott.
It can be seen that these tickets have
been made by Postmaster Fitch and
Deputy Postmaster Locke, Sheriff Cone
and Under Sheriff Dorsey, the chairmen
of the Democratic and Populist county
committees, the secretary of the Pop
county committee and other lesser
lights. It is dead sure that every man
of them is an active Pop or Democrat.
If there is a Republican in town who
does not see now that the Citizens tick
et is a scheme leading towards fus
ion next fall .he ougtfit to have the X
.rays turned on his head to find out what
is 'in it.
SOME GOOD REASONING.
The following are some good reasons
why no Republican should vote for the
Citizens ticket today:
Because it is a Demo-Pop scheme to
disrupt or weaken the Republican party.
Because it ii- a political tramp dis
owned publicly tmt nursed privately by
its parents Democracy and Populism.
Because it is the ticket of a Demo-Pop
ring in control of the postoflice and
Beeau?e the chairman and secretary
of the Populist committee helped to
Because I. P. Campbell and Judge
Sankey are for it.
Because Jesse Haymaker, David
Smyth and George Douglass are for it.
Because Bill Tiger and Hiram Lewis
are for it.
Because Rufe Cone. Tom Fitch and
George Locke made it.
Because there is no responsibility be
Because it is not as good a ticket as
the Republican ticket.
Because it stands for nothing but the
Demo-Pop pie counter.
Because all the friends and supporters

have knives in their boots for the regu
lar Republican organization.
Because it is not wise to change horses
in the middle of a stream.
Because the Republican city adminis
tration saved $32,000 to the taxpayers
the last year and hence should be in
dorsed. Because every Republican owes the
duty of being loyal to his party's nomi
nees when there is no good reason to be
Because this is a Republican year and
Wichita should be in the band wagon.
Because the ticket is entitled to the
support of every Republican in the city.
SIiCULI NOT BK lp:CKIVD
Republicans are A;a!u Warned Against
That Citizens Ticket.
In exactly two hours after the Eagle
reaches its readers this morning the
polls will be open and ready to do busi
ness. The time is short but voters may be
able to learn a few wholesome facts in
The first thing a voter should learn
and impress his mind with is, which
ticket if elected will best serve the in
terests of the people. There can be no
doubt on this question to the men who
think, study and reflect.
The main point about a ticket asking j
public support is its responsibility to do
the work which the ieople want it to do.
Responsibility in politics does not rest
with Individuals any more. In private
life a man may be trusted until death
but in public life it is different The
reason parties are sustained Is to guar
antee to the people responsibility for the
men that they offer for public support.
The two great parties are the Republi
can and Democratic organizations.
Both have been regarded for forty
years as being responsible. True the
Democratic party has been a public
disappointment, but yet it is, to some
extent, responsible. If it said "here is
a ticket and we pledge party honor that
it is all right," a few people no doubt
would consider themselves safe in vot
ing for it, but here is a ticket before the
people today that has not a party
pledge behind it. The people at large
have some reason to be wary of a Dem
ocratic ticket under the most auspici
ous circumstances; what, then, do they
think of a ticket that that party, poor
as Its record is, withholds its indorse
ment from. The ticket that the Demo
cratic party is not willing to own pub
licly, although It Is its mother, is not
worthy of the consideration of the pub
lic, no matter what the personal and
business character of the men who com
pose it is. The Citizens ticket is the
child of Democracy but Democracy does
cot claim it. It wants tlie public to
support it and then claim the spoils
that would result from Its success.
The other ticket is a Republican tick
et. It was duly nominated by the Re-
publican organization in this city. The '
ivaT-fi nnnvanrtnn we-ro riuiv nnfi iferi:i- i
mately called by the regularly elected
and authorized chairman and secretary.
Republicans of all classes attended
them and had a voice in the selection
of the candidates put before the public
Every man was selected by fair means,
every man is a taxpayer and a reputa
ble citizen. The entire ticket stands as
a ronrneontativn flf th nnrtv and if?
backed by the name and responsibility j
of the party.
The people know what the Republi
can party is. They know that the Re
publican party keeps its promises and
pledges. They know that the party
stands for etticiency and economy in
the public service. The party does not
represent a clique or gang; it represens
the citizens generally and especially the
business man, taxpayer and wage earn
er. In times like these the public serv
ice demand a council that must stand
icsponsible to the people and hence the
Republican ticket should be elected.
HE LICKED A SCRIBE
Blr. Brldgoniau fclaps One of the Iteacon
There was war and rumors of war last
night. Newt Bridgeman got the first
blood of the campaign and was very
anxious to get second blood, too. He
met E. E. M. Cochran, a reporter for
the Beacon, on North Main stree
and after asking him whether he wrote
a certain article and being answered in
the affirmative he went for Mr. Coch
ran and in his own language knocked
him ten feet into the street. The fol
lowing is the article written by Mr.
Cochran and which offended Mr.
"Frank Burt in his endeavor to save
at least a part of his clique ticket is
around this afternoon telling the sa
loon keepers what they must do.
"He and Newt Bridgeman are in a
buggy, driving from one place to an
other, and giving the saloon men who
live in the First ward to understand
that they must support Swab or suffer
"They are being instructed by Burt
and Bridgeman to trade off Witbeck if
it is necessary to save Swab.
"They are not asking that the saloon
men do this; they are simply telling
them they must support the so-called
Republican clique tomorrow."
"When Mr. Cochran gathered himself
up with a badly disfigured face he went
to 'the Beacon office. "Hide out, Bridge
man is looking for you!" shouted the
alarmed and excited devil who had
heard that Mr. Bridgeman was on the
war path. "He has seen me," said Mr.
Cochran and the devil noticed that he
had also. Mr. Bridgeman, after dispos
ing of Mr. Cochran, began searching for
Mr. Hagney, the editor, but was unable
to run across him. They will probably
meet sometime today and if they do
somebody will get licked. Both are
pretty active men and, to an outsider
who has never witnessed the mettle of
either, the result is in doubt. If they
would only be cool about it and send
for Dick Piunkett to referee the bout it
would, no doubt, be quite interesting.
Newt is mighty hot and the boys say
that Mr. Hagney is no coward. As the
Eagle reporters sleep in the forenoon it
is hoped that the boys will not run
across one another until late in the af
ternoon. This is the only time that an
Impartial writ-up of the meeting can be
secured. If Mr. Hagney is licked then
the only man that will stand in the way
to make Newt's triumph complete is
Farmer Doolittle. The Farmer is not a
heavyweight, but he understands the
science of boxing pretty well and he is
a dangerous man to mix with. He is
not as heavy as Newt but he certainly
has the advantage of him in the reach
of the arm. Seriously speaking, it is
hoped that there will be no more

March 27 schools were adjourned at 3
p. m., by the board's former resolution
that the pupils might have an opportu

pressed to me a sincere desire to meet
the children. I am sure his desire was
fully satisfied, as they greeted him by
hundreds. He, doubtless, was convinc
ed that the city's population Is not de
creasing. The repairs made under the sanitary
committee's direction have added much
needed Improvements. A visit to the
various buildings will convince any one
of the wisdow of the course pursued.

month some of the schools held continu

for such emergencies.

from a means of safety to pupils in case
of fire it is a means of education. The

CITY NORMAL SCHOOL.
During ttoe past month the city Nor

and benefit as an adjunct to our sys

ness and other good causes teachers
have been absent an aggregate of sev
enteen days during the month. TV'thout
such efficient means as the Normal

ficulty in filling the places and in some
instances the schools would have had to

for a day, works under disadvantages
if she has not been engaged in the same

are studying our system of work day
by day and are more closely in touch
with the spirit of it than one outside the
work could be. The principal of the
Normal often gives the substitute Im
mediate supervision that every detail
of the work may receive proper atten
tion. A lack of appreciation of this import
ant department of thepeblic school sys

to a lack of acquaintance with its ex
cellent work and its numerous advan

and for the general Interest of the
schools as a system.
A feeling that each grade must cover
a specific amount of work often is de
structive to the best results. Quality
of work should always be subordinate
to quantity. Not how much space can
be covered in an alloted time, but how
much can he well and thoroughly done
in the time alloted.
I have urged our teachers to do tho
rough work first, and then cover as
much snace or as many topics as this
thoroughness will permit.
Every pupil should realize that his
class standing depends upon his faith
fulness in application and his doing the
work up to his ability. Upon no other
basis should he expect to receive ad
vancement. It Is a source of encouragement to the
teachers and the management of the
schools to meet the members of the
board and other patrons of the schools
in the class rooms. The more intimate
the acquaintance with the work done
the more accurate will be the judgment
of the schools' merits. Respectfully,

A Toilet Soap salesman gave us a call two weeks
ago. Said he had a fine article, a toilet soap made up
of four parts, Vegetable Oil, Buttermilk, Lemon Juice
and Oil of Roses, and because of our central location,
our large patronage, desired us to introduce it for him,
and to that end has sent us 3,000 full size cakes put up
in handsomely lithographed and decorated sample
boxes of three cakes each. Oar instructions are to re
tail these at 9c a box. This soap has been tried since it
arrived and is a good soap, highly perfumed, lathers
freely, leaves the skin soft and velvety and prevents
chapping. Come and get abox of it while it lasts; only
1,000 boxes and three cakes to a box. Find it at north

You must have them, and
it is just as well that you
should know that we are of
fering something special in
these standard goods.
Linen is linen, it may be
said, but every buyer knows
there's a vast difference in
the wear of these goods, con
ditioned on the genuine qual
ity of the material from which
they are manufactured. We
look closely at the matter of
quality in these goods and
leave the buyer to look close
ly at the prices, knowing they
will bear examination and
comparison just as much as
the goods themselves. .Our
stock in this line is really
excellent, and we expect buy
ers to share the pleasure we
feel in offering them a really
first-class line of Table Lin
ens, Napkins, Towels, Linen
Sheetings and Pillow Casings.

fit's no trick to buy right
ly made clothing for men
and boys at little prices, if
you come here for it. A
boy can buy from us as
cheap as a man, and a man can
buy a better suit than he thought
to get for less than he expected
to pay, especially is it true if he
happens to select one of the
"Olive Brown" unfinished wors
ted suits that we are pricing this
week at $7.00.
SAME PRICE TO ALL.
