THE WICHITA DAILY EAGLE: WICHITA, KANSAS, SUNDAY MORNING, NOVEMBER, 30, 1884.
J. M MURDOCH. Editor.
SUNDAY JIOKNIXG, XOV. 30.
There are a great iimny suggestions and
much advice from Democratic paper?,
touching the makeup of Cleveland's cabinet.
Hendricks has made a trip to Albaoy as have
many other Democratic statesmen to consult
about this all important matter. And tbcro
have been meetings of politicians held in va
rious places, tbo views and conclusions of
whom have been duly forwarded in impress
ive form to the great man at Albany.
Among tlico meetings was one held ilie
other day in New York in w hich the boss
nnd rowdy element were fully and only rep
resented. Dy nnd through theso elements
in New York was Grover Cleveland first dis
covered. They made hi.n governor of New
York and the candidate of the Democracy
for president. "While all sizes, shades and
degrees of Democracy elected him the bo'S
dement have their grip upon him and will
hold it. The business men of 2fcw York
want a man under the influenco
of her Wall street made secretary of the
treasury. But there nre no jobs in the treas
ury department. There is but one depart
ment in which there is uty show for Demo
cratic stealing, and jobs which can be cover
ed up under thu forms of law. That de
partment is the Interior. Now the Kagli:
wishes ta be put on the record as prophecy
ing that thec fellows in New York will de
mand for New York the Intcriorship and
that they will get it. The secretary of the
interior will come from New York, he will
be the son-in-law of Standard-Oil Company
I'uyne, nnd his name i . C. Whitney, the
tool, conferaee and advisor of the clement of
which wo have made mention. The heavy
jawed howlers, the ward trimmers, and the
party coachcrs who have made (J rover
Cleveland and who never sutk turnips when
blood is to be had, have resolved on a four
year's squeeze of the territories and the In
dian business, and they will not bo denied.
COOD LORD. DELIVER US.
Wc arc in receipt of a circular, thousands
of which were sent out from Washington'
last week, addressed to supposed Democrats,
and which had attarhed to it a large number
of press notices. The whole thing seems
and reads like n burlesque or a huge joke,
but it it not. The company which issue it
will no doubt make a fortnnc out of gullablo
Democrats. The circular reads as follows:
Democrats, attention ! Copp's United States
Salary List and Civil Service Utile gives the
salaries of all federal offices that pay moro
than S500 a year. Applicants for office, if
wise, will buy this book, so that they cannot
be imposed upon with a small salary, when
their social position and political influence
ought to be rewarded with an office paying
several thousand dollars annuallv.

Totkf KJitore tkt Iaily t.agU :
Well, nfter a good turkey dinner, I find
myself seated by a pleasant firo which re
minds me how thankful we ought to be that
our lot is cast in such pleasant places, in a
land flowing with milk and honey, turkey
nnd chickens, and everv thing that contrib
utes to the wants necessities and happines:
of man. Truly our pilgrim fathers felt that
in no other way could they express their
gratitude to the author of all their blessings,
only to appoint n day in which they could
meet and unite in giving praio to him who
had so bountifully blced them in all their
efforts to establish civil and religious free
dom in this new world. I am glad that the
custom has leen bunded down to us their
children, and that wo can truly nnd devout
ly offer up that same thank offering that wo
havo a free country and ran acknowledge
the same guiding hand which brought them
to our shores and filled their hearts with
thankfulness nnd prui'e. I am glad tbHt the
day has been so generally observed among
our business men. A union service w-as held
at the Baptist church, and a fine sermon

To tie Editor of the fail Eagle:
1 Naiad Qetjkx. So much has been said of
tho excellent performance of the "Naiad
Queen" during the paft week, nd the de
tails have beca'so closelvobfervcd that it is
only necessary for one"1 to luako aTbnef sum
mary in the form of a hearty endorsement of
the same. Mr. Clark has made a most grat
ifying success, and we take pleasure in rec
ommcuding his efforts in this direction to
any futuro society to' which he may be con
nected. 'Tun SoiKErc A good sized audience was
pleasantly entertained. by .Mrs.. Harding and
Miss Jackson on last Monday night. The
programme was well received, sovcral num
bers being cnthusiasticall encored. AVc
came very nearly losing one of tho choicest
selettionof the evening. Ilecthovcn's "Son
ata Puthetiguc," out of consideration for the
audience, that was somewhat annoyed by
the condition of the gas. Mrs. Harding de
cided to cut that number, a special request
was mado that it should be restored, and we
willingly endured tnorogas for tho sake of
more music Mrs. Harding's neat, delicacy
of touch, which is a strong characteristic of
her praving, was admirably displayed in this
selection. Mis3 Jackson looked like a
veritable peach blossom in becoming dress
of pink satin, and won the approval of her
audience, as sho always docs. Miss Calvin
deserves particular mention for her excellent
accompaniments. It is raroly wo find a good
accompiiejt, cacii among able musicians.
Miss Calvin seemed to appreciate tho spirit
of the soloist and worked harmoniously with

hut if you propotc to dress them up with
tho color of my eves, the .style of my dress
and tho quality of my brain, 1
refuse to civo them, in other
words, it was to be fucts minus
gush. 1 assured tho littlo lady that although
I had profound respect for her I had not
come armed with any such intentions and
would try not to be found guilty of firing
nnv random shots in ithat direction. So if
this communication mnv seem to lack ardor
and admiration remember she would have it
so. Quicklv scaling a. ladder to get at some
upper shelves, she throw down several folios
containing the compositions of Wallenhaupt,
Mendleisohn, Gottchalk, Chopin, remark
ing, "You wouldn't think wo had much de
mand for this class of music, would you!
but we have, and it is on tho increase nil the
lime. To be sure it does not approach the
sales oftho popular music such as this," and
she took from other shelves some light
waltzes, gavols and w hat is termed the "lat
est songs." It U astonishing tho enormous
run some of these selections, for instance
this song," and she threw out "When tho
leaves begin to turn" is reported to have
had a sale of 10,000 copies. Our foreign
mu-ic is much demand by the teachers here
and wo make almost daily salos
of Clementini, I'.onaldiand Kul
lah's 'studies. A peep into the
ease containing small goods, revealed all
kinds of small instruments from a Jew's
harp to a elarionette. "There is a steady de
mand for this class of merchandise," nnd with
the remark all sizes and styles of harmonicos
were shown mc "The kazoo outsold them
for a while, but it was a craze, which has
subsided somewhat." As we approached a
large oac filled with a fine assortment of
violins, she said: "They look meek und in
nocent enough strung up by their necks, but
they could 'a t nle unfold' that would con
vince you tliat it is tho worst tortured instru
ment ever invented. It is a popular past
timo for tho country boys to make, the
unfortunate victims shriek and groan under
a rasping tone, and all with a view to buying
later. There is one old colored man who
makes us regular visits, his ambition for a
fifty dollar violin makes him the possessor of
none. He is fond of looking over tho s tock
and eventually settling on the aforesad for
an hour or two's practice, which consists of
about four measures of a cross between a jig
and a hornpipe. For a person of high
strung nervrt Cthinkl endured it commend-
ably.uiitilpncday'when ho struck an unlucky
moment by coming in when! was in an adjoin
ing room practicing an "AvcMaria."I tried to
rcconcilo myself to tho interruption, but
when I found he was fast making of jno a fit
subject for the lunatic asylum, I determined
in self defense to handlo the customer my
self, and cither talk him into buying or out
of the store. The violin is still on sale, and
my lost remembrance of the old gentleman
is his going out the door shaking his hands
about his cars exclaiminS, "Golly, but you
beat the world a talkin'." "Now, if you re
ally want to gnsh, hero is something on
which you can exercise that propensity,"
and she uncovered on of the "handsomest
pianos I have seen in a long time, a special
make of " Conovcr Itro.V just receiv
ed and running her fingers over
the keys she proved to mo that
the quality of tono was as exquisite as
the case in which it was dressed. "This
piano," she said further, "is being endorsed
by the bet authority in the country," and I
was shown some of the most fluttering testi
monials from such artists as Julia Hive King,
ltobcrt Goldbeck, Gustavo Krebs, etc "The
scale is of the most cquisito musical qual
ity, the action possesses all the rexuircments
made upon it by tho most exacting tech
nique," Julia Kive King. "In vitality of
tone, which a sustained finger touch pro
longs, with remarkable intensity, the 'Cono
ver' is very hard tv excel. This prolongation
so earnestly sought by both maker and pur
chaser, cxtenbs into the high treble, where it
is rarely found. The action is supporting
and helpful to the player. In our opinion
it is a very loycly.piano." Kobert Goldbeck.
"It is so easy to recommend an instrument
that speaks so forcibly for itself' sho said,
"and if we fail to introduce it very largely in
and about this country it ill bo our own
fault." In passing a "Stcinway" she re
marked, that is too "well and favorably
known to need any comments. Other makes
were well represented, that want of space
forbids my dwelling upon. We passed into
the organ department to find tho "Chase,"
"nurdette," and "Shoainger" organs in dif
ferent styles and prices. Altogether, the
principal "plain fact" 1 deduced from my
visit to "Steinway Hall" is, that 't " a well
stocked music house and handled by parties
who know how to cater to musical taste.

To tin Mttor of toe Uailr Eacle.
Knowing you are always in favor of any-tbjag-'tbat
will advance the business inter
ests of our city and help to enhance its
property, I desire to offer a few thoughts on
the above subject. AVe already have one
association of the above kind in the full tide
Wichita Building and Loan association was
organized on the first of "March lasL Its
capital stock is $200,000. Nine hundred and
thirty-three shares of S100 each have been
subscribed to date, on which S10 per sharo
have been paid and which to-day is worth
S14 per share, the association having been in
operation just nine months. At this rate
our stock at the end of the first year of its
business will be worth S19 per share, on
which all will have paid in just 13. At the
end of the second year, if this ratio contin
ues she stock will bo worth $38, on which
wo will have paid $2C At the end of the
third year it will be worth about
$CS.0O, on which $39.00 will have been paid;
and by the close of the first year, or before,
the stock will bo at par, that is $100 per
share, which will have cost the stockholder
just $52.00 per share. This is equivalent to
a profit of $18.00 on an investment of $52,00
for two years, or over 90 per cent, per an
num. This U a pretty good return for an
investment of this amount.
Hut there is another phase to this ques
tion. The primary object of these associa
tions is to furnish "homes to tho homeless."
Our money is loaned to persous to build
houses with, and during the nine months we
have been in operation we have furnished
means to build between twenty-fivo and
thirty dwelling houses, our funds being se
cured by mortgages and insurrnce policies
on tho houses thus erected. No one but
members can borrow of the association, and
all our funds are loaned to the member who
will pay the most for the privilego of bor
rowing, at 6 per cent. Our premiums to dato
have averaged 221 per cent, or $22.50 on
each one hundred dollars sold. A dividend
of $2.25 pe r share was declared on the first
of September last, being profits to that date.
New subscribers to become members of the
old association are required to pay this divi
dend, in addition to tho dues and assess
ments to date, and this prevents persons of
small means from becoming members.
To obviate tho difficulty a new associa
tion called tho "Forest City Huilding and
Loan Association" has been organized with
many of the same members of the old asso
elation. Ihe new association will com
mence business on tho second day of Decem
ber, 18S1, and will begin under much moro
flattering auspices than the old association.
Persons desirous of becoming members of
either the old or tho new, will call on R. M.
Piatt, Esq., who is secretary of both organi
zations, who will give them all information
they rnaydesiro in regard to either.
