Gandolfo yesterday started the much
talked of street reform and improvement in

tho good work go on before somoono gets
killed," was the sentence that usually fol
lowed. If a fellow had to wait for his glass
of soda water he would amuse himself by
looking down tho street and with a sort of
law-making appearance would suggest that
the council should pull the trigger to all tho

feated in Ohio township Is that only about a
niilo of tho road was expected to bo built in
that township, but Mr. Tracy thinks aid
enough will be got for the road without

are fully alive to tho fact that the taxes
that these roads will pay to the county will

One gentleman was presumptious enough
to suggest that it would be a good plan to

THE BUSINESS MEN.
The business men of Wichita can get a
pointer, which will open their eyes, by call-
ins upon any member of the Committee of
Twenty. There is no necessity of explaining
upon what rests the present boom of this
city. It is unnecessary, also, to stale that
the committee are doing all that lies in their
power. But unless the business men of this
city put themselves in a different attitude
touching the pending election they are liable
to hear something drop and that something
will be principally real values. Every busi
ness man, every property owner, every
contractor can at least afford to register and
to bctir himself to some extent to influence
others to do so. Information, reliable, in
formation reached the committee last oven-
incrof the plans and work of a foo whose
unlimited resources of men and money, will
encompass the city's defeat if every maa
docs not do his whold duty. At least one
thousand additional votes should be regis
tered by Saturday night. Go at once and
attend to this matter.
A GREAT FARMER.
J. W. Bobinson, the great farmer of But
ler county, made us a pleasant call last
evening. "We always haye to ask him about
his farm operations for we look upon him as
one of the really systematic and most prac
tical large farmers of southwest Kansas. He
said ho still had 5.000 bushels of old wheat
on hand which he guessed he would soon
let go, even at ruling prico:. As for cattle
and hogs, ho said ho hid juit sold the last of
his winter feeding, realizing, in ths gross,
twenty-three thousand dollars, his corn fed
returning him a fraction less than forty
cents per bushel.
Mr. Bobinson spent tho day looking over
our city and acknowledges that our growth
is something in the lino of wonderful. Wo
hear that the Butler county folks, by the
way, arc talking of Mr. Hr for representa
tive. Ho would provo a vory valuable mem
ber, and influential. If we remember right
ho was for several years a member of tho
MAJOR 1MMAN ON WEATHER PROPHETS
We give up our editorial space this morn
ing to an articlo from tho pen of Major Hen
ry Inman, on the subject of tho elementary
energies in nature as exhibited in cyclones,
tornadoes, etc., together with many reflec
tions and ascertained facts. Major Inman
is not only a scholar but an acknowledged
expert and a natural philosopher whoso
opinions touching some of tho natural sci
ences uavo Lccn quoted and published in
magazines and other publications as high
authority. lie wrote tho article referred to,
becauseour reply tc tho Leavenworth Times
weather prophet happened to hmuso him.
Wu nro satified thit notwithstanding tho
unusual length of tho article that it will bo
read with great interest by mtiny.
Tho matter of registration should bo more
closely attended to. Pat Healy reports hav
ing found a lot of people at boarding bouses
who supposed they wvre registered, because
soino parties were around and took their
names. That won't do. Let e cry man re
member that ho must go in person to tho
city clerk's office and bac their names put
on the books. 25o one is authorized to take
your name and register it. Enough has
been learned to satisfy our people that cer
tain interests will do, and are doing, all in
their power to defeat theso propositions. Let
every voter see that his name is on the
A TACK FACTORY.
Mr. Clark, cf Bockford, Illinois, lett tho
city yesterday mornjng and will return in
about two weeks. Ilohad been Lere three
dajs , tho first two cf which ho spent riding
over the city talking to our bu.-mefa men
about the probable future of Wichita, and
in bhort was taking in tho situation on gen
eral principles. During the time ho skilfully
avoided all questions that wero put, v.ith
the Lopo that he would tell his business, and
what is far more surprising bo successfully
warded off all thrusts ot "good bargains or
real estate" tb:t wero mado at him. On tho
third day he told soma business men in tho
city that be was connected with a largo tack
manulactory located in this city and that he
was out in the west looking for a suitable
site for another like establishment. Ho had
been directed by the company with which
he is connected, to visit this city beforo he
returned, and his visit hero was made with
an eye toward business solely. He told a
gentlemen that of the many places he had
vhited, Wichita impressed him as being tho
best site for a new factory he had seen. Ho
further stated that this was the last city he
had on his list to visit and examine and that
tho company would act according to his
suggestion. They bad left tho matter main
ly in his hands and would direct tho capital
wherever ho pointed.
Ho left for his homo where be will givo his
company tho advantage of the data ho has
collected. Judging what he said unsolicited
evidently Wichita stands best with him at
tho close of tho first round. But as he ery
cutely expressed it there yet remains some
thing clso to be taken into consideration.
The slight defect of a location can bo reme
died to a certain extent by money sub
scribed. Tho nbove small quololion sug
gests what is yet to bo discussed and re-discussed,
and finally acted upon. This matter
he will attend to when ho returns.
Tho company with which ho is connected
employs ninety boys and sixty men. He
claims tho facilities for successful operation
of his business hero is much better than
whero tho company is located. The bills
for freight for both coal and iron, he main
tained, will be less here than there. This
estimate is baed upon our present railroad
advantages. The output of his manufactory
arc tacks and all tho smaller finishing
When the question of the territory for
selling tho product was approached, he at
once brightened up almost to tbe vcrgo ct
enthusiasm, and said ho was confident a
inoro extensive establishment could bo run
here thsn tho ono at Bockford. The terri
tory, wide and long, and freo from compe
tition, and from this fact would be ablo to
get a foot-hold, and command the best
markets before any other could bo put into
operation, was a decidedly attractive feature
and was long the subject of favorable com
ment bv him.
A reporter spoke to a few of tho energetic
I'us'ncs s men of tho city last evening about
the matter, and tbey were agreeably sur
prised to hear of tho new scheme. Gener
ally they were all long past that point whero
they could be surprised ot anything pro
posed or done in this city in tho way of
pushing forward now business and new en
terprises. It was generally conceded that
the theory, that no manufactory ceuld thrive
in Wichita, whero iron and coal is used, is
of the vaporish family and would neither
stand the test of reason or experiment. Es
pecially in this case whew tbo coal Is used
in comparatively small quantities the proba
bility of such a manufactory being a success
was materially increased.
A NEW WHOLESALE HOUSE.
Another gentlemen, Mr. Agnus Jones, ar
rived in the city yesterday morning from St.
Luuis. He is a friend of Mr. John G. Allen
of this city, and came here like many other
capitalists to seo ir all this boom reported
far and wide of Wichita was as represented,
and it it was he expected to cummenco bus
Circulating about town and among friends,
it took him but a few hours to decide that
this was the point for him to locate. He
has determined to put up a wholesale furni
ture store. In looking oer the field he is
confident that in his line there is much bet
ter opening hero than in his native city. He
expects to open up hu establishment at Use
earliest period possible.
Sylvester Anderson and
Held at $8oo Each to Answer the Charge
of Grand Larceny at Next Term
of the District Court A Mot
ley Crowd in Squire
The preliminary trial of the black-and-tan
burglar and arch thief, Sylvester Anderson,
and his Cherokee mistress, charged with tbe
crime ot grand larceny, was held in Justice
W. F. Walker's court yesterday and at
tracted a large crowd. The court was full
of spectators. The demeanor of the accused
was quite sufficient to establish their charac
ter, 9 was also that of Joo Bichie and his
white other half, sufficient to convince any
observant listner that they alio ought to be
fired out of town. Joe Bichie is as black as
the aca of spades, and when it serves his
purpose he can play the fool very cleverly.
His wife is a white woman with as much
cheek as a government mule, although, in
some manner a piece of said check
has been dinged, in all probably by a loco
motive or a battering ram, for certainly no
ordinary blow could ever dinge a cheek like
Take Andarson and his conglomeration
of a white Cherokee animal of tbe female
persuasion and Ritchie and his trow, and if
their combined cheeks were boiled down the
product would furnish enough clear brass to
run a foundry two yeary ten hour system
and they would still have enough left to
make an old fashioned set of candle sticks.
Anderson would steal the Lord's supper.
From information picked up among other
colored folks Anderson served ten years in
the United States army and was mustered
out about a year ago. He ii a tall, slender,
wircy mulatto, as keen as a razor. The
woman who is cUled Mattia Anderson, who
acts in tho role of his wife, is rather a pre
possessing damsel, apparently not over 22
years. Her comploxion is fair and there is
nothing in her features indicating any but
caucassiin blood, except a dark snakoy eye
peculiar to the Indian race. She says her
father w as a white man and her mother a
Tbo whole batch wero apparently in as
funny a mood as was Wm. Edgar Boof,
their neighbor thief who plead guilty the day
before. In conversation with other darkies
who had stalls at Bichie's house, the re
porter learned that tbe squaw animal is the
wife of a big stout Mulatto cook named Cal
Frazier, and that she ran off with Anderson.
She has a girl child seven years old. Tho
foregoing is about the character of the lay
out. Tli-yand B'w.f, an open confessed
thief, are the gang Joe Bichie and his white
appendage have been harboring right along,
and thirown ovidencoin court as well as
their outeido demeanor brands them as
lambs of the smu stripe. Whenever you
find n r hito woman living with a black man,
or vice vitsj, you can set them down as
crooked and they should be bounced.
Georgu Washington Calhoun Jones de
fended Anderson and the squaw, and the
county attorney did tbe other side of the
business. The pile of goods found in the
bed tick in Anderson's room, and some
goods that Mrs. Bitchie tried to carry elT in
a hand satchel while the officers wero search
ing tho house, wero piled on the table.
Several witnesses wero examined by the
state chiefly for the purpose of proving that
Boof was not tho man who stole those
goods, as that was the lintj ol defense
Anderson and the woman who sal beside
him, kept continually talking and whimper
ing to their counsel.
Joo Bitchio uas placed on the stand, but
bo didn't seem to know any inoro about the
people than if they lived on the other side
of town. One would naturally suppose
from his evidence that ho wouldn't know if
his est wa3 stolen oil" him, but while talk
ing outside after dinner in a crowd bo ap
peared to be better posted. Regarding tbe
row between Boof and Anderson he told a
reporter that ho would tell all about it if ho
was asked, but niitn put on the stand he
would tell nothing. In tho presence of the
reporter ho said that when tbe row took
place he had to threaten to kill Anderson if
bo wouldn't be quiet, and that that was tho
first ho know that Anderson and the squaw
were not man and wife and that then he told
thorn they lad better get married. The row
between Andesson and Roof was about the
Mrs. Bitchio testified that tho pair lived
in their house for about two months beforo
they wero arrested, but generally
she was as ignorant of everything
as her black partner, oho recognized
several oi the goods on the tablo as things
the squaw had mado her a present of. Tho
proprietor of the second-hand store, whero
Anderson had sold some of tho goods, testi
fied that on tbo Monday morning following
the robbery of Hodge's store, Anderson
came to his place with the goods soon after
he had opened his store, and that Anderson
told him tbey wero some goods left on his
hands by a party who had boarded with
him, Bitchie and his wife swore the Ander
sons had no boarders, thorefore it appears to
be a plain case.
Wm. Rose, a colored man, who had bung
out at the Bitchie mansion, said in the
uresonco of a reportor that the thing was too
plain against Anderson, and that he ought
to have no sympathy, but afterwards tho
scribe heard Mrs. Bitchie tell Rose noWo
say anything against him, but if they would
prbvo him guilty, let him dio hard. The
Bitchie woman is a captain. When Bote
was placed on the stand afterwards he abso
lutely knew nothing. Every ono cf the gang
stuck together, although outside they gave
away lots of pointers. Doc Worrall testi
fied to where and how tha goods wero found
hid in the mattress.
Tho point tbst Jones tried to make was
that Boof had put them there, but in tho
face of all the evidence before tho court tbe
point was rather thin.
Jones moved for a discharge, and made a
a strong plea in favor of the squaw, but it
didn't go. The two lawyers, Tom MeN'a-
mara, and Anderson and tho squaw took
part m the closing argument. It wu a sort
of freo for all debate, but the judge gave
ample reasons for committing both Ander
son and tho woman, and they were held in
tbe sum of ?SO0 each to answer for tha
devilment at tho next term of tho district
court, and their frionds not responding with
the necessary bail, they were consigned to
their rooms at tho Hays house.
Notices were posted around tewn yester
day signed by the city marshal, notifying the
owners of the canine tribe that they would
be required to pay a dollar tax on those of
the male persuasion and three dollars for fe
males. It is to bt hoped that this may tend
to decrease tee supply ctlnal lineol pro
duce, for, as hinted in tccse columns fre
quently, the supply is greater than the de
mand. Tbe city clerk told the reporter that
he was registering dogs as well as men cow,
and that the names and style of four dogs
were already on the books.
"The work fr the lawyers has come at
last," said a centlemaa yesterday. The leeal
fencing during tbe last few days has been on
the increase. The long pent up oratory
was being turned loose yesterday In almost
every room or building set apart to receive
snch rare treasurers. Net only is the crimi
nal docket swelling, but civil eases are ac
cumulating and "verily the siens of tit
times indicate a boom for tbe legal fraternity."

M. S. Hess, of tbe wholesale boot and
shoe house of Hess & Bro., Baltimore, Md.,
brother of Sam Hess, of the popular Man
hattan clothing bouse, is in the city on his
periodical business trip.
"William Higgins, of the Santa Fe's
claim department, and one of tho most pop
ular and thorough going officials of that
great corporation, spent the day in the city
yesterday. He says our city is simply a
marvel, and blind must be the man who
fails to see in it a great city.
MIGHT DO BETTER.
A reporter listened to a couple of gentle
men giving their opinion of Wichita yes
terday at the Manhattan. Ono said the city
had done wonders the last five years, but
might havo done far more. "Asido from mere
talk the people of Wichita have done very
little to build up the place. A few indi
viduals have done very well in tbe matter
of railroads, and working successfully for
the appropriation for a federal building but
that is all. Tho position of the city to
gether with her natural resources had
donethe rest. When the attention
of capitalists was drawn to
this city, if the peoplo had given aid to half
a dozen manufacturing establishments, the
town would be almost double as large as
"That's about so," said the other. "In a
town like this where so much foreign money
is being invested the tax for city aid to two
or three enterprises would never be felt, and
if this city would bond itself for a good and
complete sewerage system and expended
something in rendering their town a little
more metropolitan-like they would get it
back ten-fold. I know monicd
men from my neighborhood who
come to this town to invest but left with
out buying a dollar's worth of property be
cause thoy imagined they could see nothing
to keep the place up, and they thought it
would never be drained."
"I believe in subsidies," said tho other, "I
havo seen many cities built up ia that way
whilo other more careful towns were laft in
the shade. Keep up the interest and draw
the peoplo and your town will never feel the
subsidy. This whole western country was
built up by subsidies. The govern
ment may havo been too liberal with
tbo railroads in the matter of lard grants,
but without subsidies to tbe roads this
county would bo twenty years behind what
it is now. A timid doubting policy has
kept many a city back whilo a neighbor
more libcr.il has out stripcd it and left it
in the shade. I tell you, great and prosper
ous as this town is, if they had done more of
that sort of thing they would havo a far
