DEPRESSION AND ;ECONOMY.
On Karning; of tbe cmbarraxment of
Harding & Fwher a Rood manr ciprrs-J
tlic opinion that it was but tbe Iwginning;
of the end. In these time of depreion it
would be well for our merchants to adopt a
radical vtem of economy and retrench
ment. During the greater portion of our
hUtory as a citv, trade ha been vronderful-
jly good, and good were bought and sold
with a lavishnes unknown in older and
more settled communities. Our merchants
never have known the need and conioqucnt
!r never practiced anvthinrj liijp a rigid sys
tem of economy. All businef was conduct-

WHAT WICHITA NEIfDS.
The paramount need of the city of Vrich-
its at me preseni time i an iiocesx, emaeni
government; men of moral standing and
the very bet bu'inos ,hibiti and abiHtyH
Wichita t- no longer a frontier trading post'
nor a ivitv-lioy town; but a great commercial
In the old time, the hief qualification
looked for in those days for a candidate,
trout mayor down to policeman, was that of
Wing a "good fellow," which in English
mean' to be ofl"-handedf "blow in" a dollar
frequently with loon companion and stand
in with tho boy. Day before yesterday the
writer overheard a couple of citizen speak
ing f a couple of men prominent in the
city council, and they admitted that the
parties referred to did not amount to much
in the matter of running a city government
but they were -good fellows." Good fellows
are just what this city don't want at precnt
"What sbe need are men of tho highest
social standing and the best business ability
men who will do their duty in any emerg
ency, regardles of tb" good or bad opinion
of "the lioys."
We have frequently called attention to
the filthy condition of the city in general
and the laxity shown in executing the laws
the leniency shown lo criminal-and law
breakers and the disposition of the author
ties to cover up evil deeds and to shield
evil-doers. Whenever w c found it necessary
to call attention lo this: state of things, a
cry was raied by those interested, together
with certain newspaper', thit it was impo
itic lo let the otitido world know that this
city was not a model of law and
order, or that everyone who chose
to plunder and rob our people
were not Angles. We conceive it to be tho
duty of a daily journal to expose every evil
deed of which it has coguizanee and to fol
low every evil-doer until brought to justice
or compelled to leave town. The Eaole
will never beconr.o a party lo the covering
up proees-. Our police have had to bear a
good deal of bhme that probably ought to
be ercdited to tho-c in authority over them.
The writer had a conversation with an ex
policcman some time ago concerning a cer
tain criminal matter that had been covered
up. He said it was useless to try to deal
with eertain criminal according to law,
when official? higliin authority were as deep
in tho mire as those who ought to be brought
to justice. There is good reason to believe
that if our city council vould support the
police in doing their duty the latter body
would be as efficient as tho-c of mo-t other
Just now there arc some matters of vital
importance that should command the atten
tion of the city government. Anticipating
the spread ol eholera in this country next
summer, every city in the United States is
adopting rigid and vigjrous sanitary measure-.
This c ity is notoriously filthy; it ap
pears to he nobody's business to see that
sewer-, back vnrds and closets are kept
clean. The sewerage is wretchedly inade
quate. It i- urged in this connection that
owing lo a little of fall the sewerage uiu't
remain bad. Thcro is reason to believe
that a c-oiiiiietent engineer could b going
a couple of mil- down the river
find a sufficient f til- A large main sewer or
can-d could be cut through the city to tliat
point which would serve as an alimntary
canal for a complete system of scurage.

i- seldom that tli mUmus of a city of tho
magnitude of Wichita is found in so de

Corruption, looseni.-- and irregularity reign
on every hand. AVhen such laxity and cor
ruption exi-U in a city government, the in
fection generally spreads to society and all
forms of vice and immorality creep into the
foul atmosphere and fiouri-h in it.
Tim K,GLL shall always regard it a duty
to point out a di-ca-e, if one exists, that
threatens to undermine the moral and
physical health of the city, and it should be
tho duty of tho city government to discover
tho scat of the disease and not only to pre
scriliu n remedy, but to administer the dose

Men who will do thi, no matter if they
bo called bad fellows, are what Wichita

A largo and somewhat di'atified audi
enco greeted the Helen Illy tbe combination
in "Article 47" in Turner' oper houe, un
der the management of Bruce Craddock last

was somewhat tame and inditTerent. The
manner in which Helen Blvtho sustained
ihe beautiful characti r of "Cora, the Creole,"
fully sustained the representations of ber
manager that she is the youngest emotional
star upon tho stage; he possesses but lit
tle merit a an actress, and relies simply
upon a handomc face for her success "Wil
