A LAST TRIBUTE.
One of our oldest settlers is gone to return
no more. Deputy U. S. Marshal, "W. B.
Williams, as was briefly announced in tbece
colums yesterday morning, has met the fate
of all the hosts who have looked out upon
this world as children of earth. Life is even
short for those who live longest, but being
filled with so many griefs and disappoint
ments to have made life long would have
been to make it unindurvble. The kind-
hearted father and husband had well nigh
reached the autumn of his life when every
little breath of misfortune must have shaken
loose the leaves of joyj and left naked
branches onlv for the blasts of winter. He
had lived to see his children grow up to
manhood and womanhood and to honor
him. Few men in this county were more
widely known. His face and form
had become so familiar that it is
hard to realize that he is really gone
and that we shall meet and talk with him
no more. W. B. Williams was apparently
of rough exterior at times but the kindest
heart always throbbed beneath his manly
breast. His sympathy for the poor and un
fortunate were his marked characteristic.
He would go to any length to relievo any
ono in distress. Tho sudden and terrible
death of his brother George a few weeks ago,
whom ho had deputized to servo some pa
pers, preyed upon his mind. As an evi
dence of the estimation in which he was held
wo have not even to appeal to his old mends
but it can be found in the calls for meetings
elsewhere of the societies and orders of which
he was so long an honored member. The
editor of this paper has known him inti
mately for twelve or thirteen years and
we hac only known him in the character
which we describe.
W. B. Williams was born in Tennessee
fifty-seven years ago, but spent most of his
life in Illinois and Wisconsin. He was mar
ried in tho latter state, at Dodgcvillo in
1843, to Mrs. Elizabeth Duncan,
who is the mother of all his five children,
who are now grown and who with those
children arc lctt to mourn one whose love
till now was never so valued. With them
he came to Sedgwick county in 1871. In
the vears ho has resided here while he has
riven his attention to farming and stock
raising, lie lias Held several positions oi
honor and trust. In 1880 he took the U.
S. census and something like a-year ago he
was appointed Deputy U. b. .Marshal; which
place he filled with great credit to himself
until no was taken uown a iuw tom "
while in active duty.
His remains will be buried to-morrow at
2:30 o'clock from his late residence on Mar
ket street, and by the Masonic lodge and
Old Settlers association. To our old
friend, a long farewell, forourstlfand many
Farewell! The early dews that fall
Upon thy grass-grown bed
Are like the thougbjs thut now recall
Our image of the dead.
Many blessings hallow thy dark cell
We will not stay to weep Farewell.
THE TOWN OF HAZLETON.
Rev. J. O. Hazleton, founder of tho new
town of llazleton. and Mr. A. J. McPhee
also of that flourishing young city, arrived
here vesterday morning on business con
nected with tlieir town. In an interview
with an Eagle reporter, Mr.HazIeton, stated
that he had formerly lived in Bufl'alo, N. Y.,
that his health had been so poor for a num
ber of vears that he had dispaired of ever
being tit to attend to any business. In this
condition he came to Kansas ten months
ago. lie regained his health so rapidly in
our salubrious climate that he determined to
make his homo here. He pre-empted a sec
tion of land in Barber county, about
half way bctweenllarpcr and Medicine
lodge and there founded the embryo city
that bears his name. The town was organ
ized about tho beginning of Juno last and
now numbers about 200 inhabitants.
The voung city contains many very fine
buildings, clnet among which is an elegant
stone block built by Fisher Bros., of Brad
ford, l'a., at a cost of S12.000. These gen
tlemen have otablished a bank here with a
cash capital of 50,000. A fine frame school
building costing S8.0U0 has ju-t been finished
and is opened as a high graded school, or
college known as tho Hazleton Collegiate
Institute" presided over by one of the most
accomplished educators in the country,
l'rof. II. C. Boslev.lateol Bradford, l'a. The
proceeds from tfio sale of 40 acres of the
town site will be applied to endow the col
lege. Mr. llazleton says that the progress
of their city has been greatly retarded in
consequence of some parties having jumped
tho claim on which it is situated; thus ren
dering the title to all lots disputable. The
matter has just been amicably adjusted, a"nd
it was in that connection that the two gen
tlemen were here yesterday. Now that this
impediment to its progress has been remov
ed and tho engineer corps of the Southern
Kansas road are la ing off the grounds for
their depot there, thev eipect a big boom.
passenger trains oi mat roau
now run to Atica, fifteen miles distant Irom
tho new town. Mr. llazleton says tho town
occupies a beautiful site on a gentle emi
nence threo miles from 3Iedicine river.

this city day before yesterday by Rev. IL P.
Tandy." rustor of tho" Christian church:

FINE UNDERWEAR AND
It is well known hhat several causes Working together, have
made a great depression in the wholesale dry goods market. With
the ready cash to buy goods from this depressed and overstocked
market, we have been able to make large purchases at unparalel
led reductions. No other house in the city can sell goods as
cheap as we can, because no other house is in a position to buy
largely at this time. Large blocks of these goods will be marked
and placed on sale Saturday morning. We refer with satisfaction
and a natural business pride, to our extraordinary sale of Fine
Wraps, and worked with an untiring energy to make this sale of
Fine Blankets and Flannels, Fine Underwear and Hosiery, equally
successful. We have doubled our working force to expedite busi
