THE WICHITA DAILY EAGLE: WICHITA, KANSAS, TUESDAY MOBNING, APRIL 27, 1886.
M. M. MUKDCCK, Edite-.
TUESDAY MORNING. ATOIL 27.
HUTCHINSON'S MO. PACIFIC
The Wichita Eagle lat week wns
alldohiy ami painfull' i-iletit about the
exleii'ion of the 3Ii-eotin Pacific
railroad io iliis city. Tliis silence i
iudirativc of dorp fueling. It ii
evident (list while enerally suc-ces-ful,
Wichita is busted in this.
We :ucis you didn't read the Eagle
very clnseh , which spoke very plainlj
and meciutly of tlif iiropoitiou. Wv
are not aware of any deep feeling
touching the mifter. Wichita's prin
cipal dcjirc now is to hook on to all
the prominent cities and towns of the
southwest, and with the competing
lines, where it is possible. An exten
sion of the Mi-souri Pacific from
Wichita to Hutchinou would give us
two lines to Hutchiu-on, and force
the Santa Fe to operate a daily traiu
from Wichita to Hutchinson, provid
ing the business of the latter place
should warrant it.
As for the Interior's disposition to
crow; or its declaration that Wichita
is busted in that extension, wc will
remark, for its better information,
tion, that the Wichita and Colorado
its course and route is absolutely in
the hands of Wichita men, and wc
know what we arc talking about.
The company or its contractor couldn't
prevent the building of a plug up to
Hutchinson from Haven or Lincoln
townships, probably; but a? to
whether the main line shall run by
way of Hutchinson, or straight
through Ketio county west, the Wich
ita incu aforesaid have the sole say.
A MATTER OF TAbTE.
In fact, to use one of Harry Nor
ton's suggestive idea, it would be
more creditable for a respectable man
to be hung in Emporia than 10 die a
natur.il death in Wichita. Emporia
And that's what's the matter with
Emporia. She is so hide-bound that
hcravcragccitfccn would rather starve
to ildtlli than see their place flourish
as Wichita flourishes'.
The lecture of Mrs. M. E. Lease,
delivered in Wichita the other even
ing, inut have been remarkably fine
and convincing, for the Eagle, which
holds that woman's sphere i-i to keep
house, look pretty and keep out of
pontic-;, compliments it highly. w m-
The Eagle holds tint man's sphere
is not woman' sphere, and vice versa.
As for keeping house and looking
pretty, the-e have never necn de
manded of either wwnan or man by
the Eagle. As for the political field,
wedoii'i believe it is one tint can lie
occupied harmonioHsly mid profitably
by both M-es at fie same time, but
we don't nmember of having ever
sal 1 anything again-t the proposition
of giv'ugit upcutin-ly to tins women.

PRATT CENTER ITEMS.
To the Editor of the Eatfe.
It is a fond hops of tho enthusiastic
Pratt citizen that our town sonic day

extravagant theory is intensified from

thc-e times when the east is all "broke
up" over strikes and labor troubles,
and the extreme west crowded with
pauper tourists, our own fair state,
especially southwestern Kauas, is en
j 'i'tug the most remarkable boom in
tier history. It is no wonder then,
that when a stranger comes here from
the sleep' old villages ot
the eat and counts over
one hundred farm wagons on Maiu
street at one tunc during an average
business day, meets two or three
dozen real estate agents in the course
of 6ix hours, to renounce allegiance to

in city lots, pulls ofl his coat and be

strangers that roll in hero on the can

PATRONS QF THE H1CHEK EDU
CATION. The recent noble gift of !2.r,000
nisde by C.'lonel II W. Lewi', of
Wichita, to the I'rcsbyicriau academ
of that city is worthy of special notice.
It probably has no paralleTup to tins
time in the state ol Kansas. (Jills
ranging from one to live thousand
dollars have been given to institutions
of learning iu this commonwealth, but
the splendid benefaction tendered to
Wichita academy stands thus far aloue
iu its conspicuous liberality.
Colonel Lewis is to be congratulated
for his enlightened views, his broad
sympathies and his generous prompt
ings Such a gift as he has made en
titles him to beheld in lasting remem
brance by all the good people of our
It is to be hoped that this splendid
example will stimulate some of the
wealthy men of Emporia to do a like
generous act for our own young and
ri-ing college. We have men iu our
midst with larger means than Col
Lewis. Why may we not hope for
large gifts from tonic of them?
One haudsome contribution, such as
that given to Wichita, would set our
college on the high road to permanent
prosperity, fiuch a gilt always in
spires confidence, and besides it stim
ulates others to imitate the good ex
ample. A few years ngo Dr. Cornell
gave a very largo sum to the univer
sity that bears hi- name. Soon Mr.
Sago followed with a princely gift;
then Mrs. Fiskc, then others, until the

Let sonic one ot our leading citizens
in the near futtiic endow a professor
ship in the College of Lmporia, then
at once gifts would begin to How in
upon u, aud in a few years wc miirht
hope to take rank with the be-t iusti
tutioiis of the west, it is not ct two
ueeks since Col. John U. Anderson,

'I lint is the great effort ol the ngita
tor now. For the time being all mi
nor differences are put aside and each
man devotes himself to the common
object. For that purpose capital is
bulldozed to prevent it from emplov

ment of the unions, and the independ
ent laborer is bulldozed to prevent
him from going to the aid of capita iu

only timid but cowardly, aud the in
dependent laborer, unsupported by
organization, is fearful lest, after he
goes to the relief of capital, he will be
deserted by that cowardly clement.
Such has been the experience in the
past, and why mar it notin the future?
Thn it is thst a comparatively smalt
minority of the people, organized for
the purpose, is keeping the whole
country in a ferment, blockinj the
wheels of commerce, and hushing the

Mr. J. W. Miller, who his tilled the
position of general manager of the St.
Louis, Fort Scott & Wichila railroad
with such- signal ability and success
for three years, has accepted the posi
tion of general manager of the New
York, Stonington &r Providenrc rail
road and line of steamers, with head
quarters at New York City. Mr. Mil
ler took charge of tho Wichita road
without experieuee as a railroad man-
ager, and may justly look back to bis
'ichicvemciits'iu Kansas with satisfac
tion. He not only proved himself
master of the difficult task assigued
him, ot mauagiug aud putting into
operation a new line of road among a

And sives th univcrs a from wreck
And peril this tremendous force
Holds HLewiso all our little lives;
The suns and fctars do all obey
His bi iding nover planet strives
To swerve from its appointed way.
The dancrouj boon alone to us
Is given to choose "twixt ill and we'd,
Rebellion or obedience thu3

Smites sore. His mercy still enfold
