polls luefday, some of them being resident
of the city for years. Tint looks rather
small to sav the leat.
A woman tendered her vote at tho Fourth
ward precinct Tuesday and received the us
ual refusal. The ladies are quite persistent
ut nny rate on the subject of franchise.
Two plain drunks was tho great rush of
bushes at tho police court Tuesday. They
were dead heads therefore there was not
enough cash taken in to defray current ex
penses. Dan Parks found a brown canva's valise
in a box car of tho Sunflower road at this
city. There nre certain initials on it, and
Dan taps anyone who can describe tho
satchel and tefl the inilials can have it.

with any house in tho city.
A commodious addition has been built to
the residence of Judge Hill, on the corner of

to take a limited number of boarders. Tho-e

We were pleased to see Mr. Henry Israel
on the street yesterday. He has been down
with malariaf fever fur the last eight weeks.
Ho was living in Kingman when he was
taken sick. Two other young men that
took sick at the same time and uitli the same
diseaso have since died.
The faces of defeated candidates were so
long yesterday that the barbers thought it
no more than right to charge them twenty
five cents for a shave; tbey can consolo
themselves in view of the "fact that their
heads have become so contracted that they
can get their heads shaved fos ten cents.

of the most coy little rooms in tho city.
Talk about u free hallut and a lair caunt!
Wo heard that four Iteha Lnckwoml elec
tors were bulldozed out of their votes, Tues
day, at the Third ward. It is too bad that
full grown American citizens who were per
fectly willing to j-xerciso the franchise, were
mthle-tly set aide. It is doubtful if Belva
will ever get there unices we get a new set of
Hipeni'or of election.
Tho doors of a new re.-taurant were Tues
day thrown open to tho public In the
"Douglas avenue block" a nice, large room
has been arranged with all the necessary fur
niture to fit it for a very nico and complete
place in which to get regular boarding or
iiii.'iil to order. Some nice furni-hed rooms
are kept jn connection with this new hostlety.
Mr. L. D. Search has added to the city'a

Never in the history of this or any other
city ha an election pasted oil' so quietly as
that of Tuci-day. Everything went as smooth
as clock work. Not an angry word was
f poken and the utmost harmony and good
feeling preiailed throughout tho day and at
night. From the opening to the closing of
the polls a large crowd surrounded each
polling booth but not a sign of a quarrel
nor an angry word occurred.

Ycterday morning two tramps succeeded
in getting away with a pair of boots from
mo irotit oi isruoi s More, on umiglas ave
nue. Subsequently they were hiii in an
alley trying the shoes on, and Dan Parks
was put on their track with instructions to
watch them, expecting to catch them at
some other thieving luct night. Then- fel
lows w-ere evidently not aware that this city
is gelling to be hot fur tramps and thieves,
else thev would not deem it a healthy place
for such, as them.
A new plot of eighty acres of ground
known as the "Chautauqua addition to
"Wichita," has just been hud oil" and placed
upon tho, market for sale. This is a very
pretty piece of land, laying high with it
slope is on the city side of'College Hill, and
on the north s ide of Douglas Avenue. There
was eighty acres in th" piece, and though
tho books were just opened two or three
days ago forty-five acres are already dispos

This would eem to lndieato a prime demand

have, secured building places on or near

project is on foot to eitcnd the lino of street

push this enterprise so that on or before
January 1st, lSsl.thecars will be running to
n point'n quarter of a mile south of the "W.

avenue. This wi.il bo a very great conveni

tlw city and will, ln-side.-, enhance tho 'value
of lots, nud property in that vicinity and es
pecially wiittlml be the case with that land
lving joining the quarter adjacent to the
line ol road. Tliat quarter seems at present
to be one of tho favorite building localities
of the city, and thi. road will no doubt give
it n big boom.
During the last two nights and yesterday,
our city has bei-n in a fever of exciting ex
pectancy awaiting the election returns. Im
mediately after the returns began to come
in. the Kaoi.e ollieo nnrl iht Ui'tMildin.,,,
headquarters, abo the lleacon ollice and
Democratic headquarters, were packed so
full of anxious people that danger of break
ing through the floor was apprehended. As
the dispntchi-s were read indicating favora
ble returns for one party, their headquarters
rang with cheers and vice vcra. A consid
erable number hung about the Kaole oflico
until 5 o'clock yeerdav morning, and at
that time the prospect for the Kepublicans
looked blue. At about $ n. m.
the dispatches began to como in
and that part of Douglas avenue bet ween the
Eagle and Ueacon offices began to fill up
with people nnd first one and then tho other
had their turn uon the "ragged edge." Up
'till noon tho Kepublicans kept rather shady
but about two p. iu., returns favo?able to
their tide pegan to come in and tho editor of
the Eagle felt that he could face the music.
A bulletin boord was set up in front of the
Eagle office, the Colonel mounted a box in
front of the bulletin board and looked defi
ance at tho Democrats collected on the op
posite side of tho street about the lJeaeon
office, from that hour until five p. m., the
ftrect was packed so full tliat it was
difficult for tlie street cars and other vehicles
to pass. Thisstate of thinp continued
until about six, when everybody made a
break for supper. Thi: g looked so bright
for the Kepublicans at tuat time that thev
began to take even bets. About 7:30 the
crowd began to gather again, but returns
