Mr. Kelly is a very pleasant gentleman, who
no doubt will command the respect and con

TAKES AFTER HIS FATHER.
From a copy of the Louisville Daily
Post, lying before us, wo noto that our
young fellow townsman, W. K. Carlisle, has
won a great suit, involving a trust citato
valued at many hundreds of thousands of
dollars. Mr. Carlisle has been absent twice
this spring in Kentucky on account of this
suit and is now in Louisville. It is charged
that one set of the heirs had overdrawn
their share between one and two hundred
thousand dollars. Mr. Carlisle, as our peo
ple know, is tho oldest son of the Speaker
of the National House of Representatives
and really a very young man, and his suc
cess in a suit which tho papers say is the
largest pending in the stato of Kentucky,
make the laurels thus won noteworthy, and
so the Eagle congratulates him.
A NEW BAPTIST CHURCH.
Wo incidenlly learn that one of Wichita's
heaviest capitalists, Dr. H. O. Burleigb, is
making arrangements to build a church in
tho northern subcrbs of the city, on what
streets was not definitely learned, but on
one of his north additions. The doctor is
not only very wealty but a prominent Bap
tist and could build a dozen respectable
sized churches without missing the money.
He and the pastor of the First Baptist, Roy.
W. F. Harper, hare been quito busy for
several days and no doubt the preliminaries
have all been arranged. Wo expect to see
something neat and attractive, something
worthy of Dr. Burleigh's taste and gener
osity. TABLE TALK.
A number of guests at supper at tho Man-
batten were discussing the future of various
towns and cities. All were agreed that
Wichita will bo the great city of Kansas but
there was a diversity of opinion as to its
prospective greatness, Only two Wichita
men were engaged in tho conversation.
One of tho strangers thought that 100,000
would bo tbo limit of Wichita's growth, but
another said that ho remembered when
Kansas City's limit was fixed at 80,000 and
that, ho said, was not very many years ago
either. Another said that if wo get tho
three proposed new railroads and good
crops for a few years, this city will boom
right along without any drawback until she
foots up 100,000 inhabitants and that there
is no telling what size she may attain.
Well 100,000 will do very well for a few
years and then wo can get up somo now
scheme that will boom her up another
100,000. That will be enough for comfort.
What a daisy sho w ill bo with her thirty or
forty railroads, with her general offices and
machine shops, with her immense stock
yards, elevated railroads and sub-terra tele
graph, telephono and electric light wire?.
her host of colleges and unit crsities; her
churches and grand public buildings, both
stato and federal; her great corps of news
papers and periodicals and hundreds of
other accessories too many to enumerate.
Let her go.
A NEW FACTORY.
A now carriogo factory is numbered
among tho lato arrivals in tho city. Tho
reporter at present is tot granted the privi
lege of giving tho proprietors name to print,
but suffico it to say he is an old resident of
Wichita, and tho appearanco of the new en
terprise, is an assured fact.
It is proposed to havo the establishment
in full blast in a few months.
The factory will bo located on Forth Main
street and will opon up with thirty or forty
hands. A brick building will be built of
sufficient dimensions to accommodato this
HIT HIM HARD.
Tbo thief who entered Mrs. Russell's
houso Monday and carried off tho little
girl's wallet containing 65 cents, two postage
stamps ar.d a postoffico key, was brought
beforo Justice Thomas yesterday and re
ceived a sentence of $50 flno and four
months in tbo county jail. Judge Thomas
regretted that ho could not give him two
Tears in tbo pen. If tho doors bad not
been left open be could bo indicted for bur
glary in the first degree and given a L,ood
dose. Of course his namo is John Doe.
THE LOST NOT YET FOUND.
Now light gradually dawns upon the mys
terious disappearance of Messrs.H.KLeo and
C. Blanchard, and with this more creditors
aro holding up their hands and exclaiming
so many dollars lost. One jeweler out a gold
watch, another a diamond. Several suits of
clothes remain unpaid for. These, together
with some other things havo como under tho
reporter's notice and something was intima
ted last evening that would indicate that
a large bill may coma to tho surface shortly.
Their store was closed yesterday and all
aro waiting furthor developments.
A FINE RESIDENCE.
An Eaolx reporter called at tho office of
Terry & Dumont y estcrday and was shown
drawings for the new residence of Mr. R. E.
Root. Judging from tho architectural work
it will be, when completed, one of tbo most
handsomo residences in tho city. It will be
built on Xorth Topcka avenue, facing tbo
taut, with a thirty-eight foot front and is
6irty-two feet deep.
It will be a frame with eleven rooms and
will cost something over $5,000. Tho first
story contains four sets of sliding doors and
the plan of tho entire building is one of the
most desirable in the city.
Work was commenced on the foundation
a few days since and it is proposed to com
plete the entire building in a few months.
IN NEW QUARTERS.
Manager Stewart, of the Western Union
telegraph, is now doing business in his ele
gant new office, Xo. 113 Main street, and by
the time he has everything fitted up to suit
him, which will be in about two weeks, he
will have the finest and best arranged office
west of the Mississippi. The office is com
modious and convenient, besides being on
the ground floor.
Mr. Stewart was seen by an Eaolx re
porter yesterday and he is in high feather.
Ho was working like a Turk with his sleeves
rolled up, and he said that when be has
everything fixed to suit him he will bo ablo
to give the people of Wichita a service sec
ond to none in the west, and he is just the
man to do it.
The building of the coffee and spice mill
on South Emporia avenue is finished; so
also ara tbo double brick residence for tbe
proprietors on the tamo street and Mr.
Exton's Lew brick house on Williams street.
Mr. Eiton can boast of having accomplished
the work of building these four large bricks
in a shorter time than such a task has been
accomplished by any other person in this
city. Xot a tap was done on them until the
middle of March and they ara all ready by
tbe first of June. This is undoubtedly
quick work and the buildings are all first
ciaja. Mr. Faraum told a reporter yester
day that the spice mill would be ready for
train rat in about two weeks.
POCKET BOOKS FOUND.
Mr. Charles Roesler brought two leather
wallets to this office Ust evening well
stuffed with papers, but no money, save a
silver half-dime, rolled up in a rag, which
was in one.
The papers indicato that ono of the pocket
books belongs to Rev. X. E. Harmon and
the other to A. B. Green.
Mr. Kossler, who is a wholesale paper and
carpet dealer on Main street, says he found
the wallets near tbe alley fence back of his
place, when ho went out last evening to feed
Mr. Harmon reports that his wallet con
tained about 17, but this the thief or thieves
eviiently took n fancy to. Whether the
other wallet contained any money or not, is
not known at this shop.
The pocket books await tho owners at this
office, and there are no charges to pay.
A certain detective told the writer yester
day that there are a number of regular jour
neyman thieyes in tbo city at present, and
be gavo the reporter many pointers as to
how they can be detected, also how difficult
it is to catch them so as to fasten tbe guilt
upon tbem, or as he expressed it, "to get
them dead to rights."
The best way is to notify all who can't
give a good account of themselves, to skip

The day was occupied in arranging tho
docket and hearing motions. An important
case will be brought up tbis morning on
change of venue from Sumner county, viz:
Tho stato of Kansas vs. WTm. T. Edwards,
indicted in Sumner county for murder in
tho first degree. The man killed, it will be
remembered, was a gambler and hard
case, named John Wilson who was invited
to take a walk out ol this town soma years
ago and was escorted across tho bridgo by
Policeman Dan Parks. Tho shooting was
done in a gambling and drinking jsint row
in Wellington a year ago last winter.
J. H. Murray, county attorney of Sumner
county, is here to represent tho state, and
Win. McDonald, of Wellington, Edward's
counsel is a' so here; who will bo assisted by
Slus & Stanley.
Tho docket is heavy and includes many
criminal cases, chief nmong which aro thoso
of Roof who burglarized tho hardware storo
at Derby, and Sylvester Armstrong, tbo
cheeky yellow nigger who burglarizod J. L.
Hodgo's dry good3 storo on Douglas avenu,
and his Cherokee mistress.
Roaf pleads guilty, so in his caso it only
remains for the court to fix tho term he is to
servo in tho pen. Tho forgery caso of tbo
fellow who was fireman ut the Wichita
canning factory a yeer ago at ill also boon
tap this term and a number of other crim
inal cases will be disposed of.

HERE TO STAY.
Dr. E. E. Hamilton informs us that be is
hero to stay in tho practice of tbe eye, ear,
noso and throat. Ho is receiving patronage
which justifies bim in detcrming to remain
permanently in Wichita. See his card.
Judge Leonard Swctt and son Leonard
H. Swelt, of Chicago, arc guests at the
Manhattan. Judge Swctt was an intimate
friend of Abraham Lincoln and traveled
around with him oertbo same circuit for
years nnd on this account tbo erroneous re
port that bo was Mr. Lincoln's law partner,
spread and is now generally believed where
the Judgo is known. In conversation with
a represcntaln e of this paper, last evening
at tho Manhattan, tho Judge denied tbo ex
istence of any partnership between tho great
martyr and himself, and said that a few
years ago, when he was in London, Eng
land, ho found the same erroneous belief
prevailing. Judgo Swett is favorably im
pressed with Wichita.
Mr. J. M. Offield, tbe nrholcsalo grocer of
Sedalia, Mo., who was here last week, and
after taking in the situation here and at
WinSeld and Arkansas City, was convinced
that tbis was the city for him, therefore he
bought seicral lots kr.d as soon a bo can
get straightened out where he i, he will
move to Ibis city and. enter business. Mr.
Offield is a livo business man of large
means and business expcricncosyind can tell
a good thing when he sec it.
C Wood Davis returned from the east
yesterday. A letter awaiting him announc
es that there is no opposition to the Chica
go, St. Joseph and Ft. Worth road in Mc
Pherson county. Outside of tho Santa Fe
interests the same is practically true in
Sedgwick. The five hundred new men
lately encamped on our southern line will
not only be throwing their time away but a
number of them arc liable to work awbU j
for tbe state for their boarding and clothing.
"We got 'em on the list."
Mr. Frank Desbcn, who will play Gas
pard tonight at the opera house, is said to
be tbe finest representative of this character
in America. The "Chimes of Normandy"
is one ol tbe best operas ever written, and
tbe Starr opera company have achieved a
great reputation for their excellent rendition
of the opera.
Last evening Mr. and Mrs. J.
tendered a reception to a number
mate friends, at their residence.
The high school gave a picnic on the
Little river yesterday. Boats were secured

Mr.andMrs. W.F. Hllerfrom Ohio,
Wedding bells rang at 5 o'clock yesterday
morning, celebrating tbe nuptials of Mr. J.
K. Hollowoll and Miss Kate Randall, Rer.
T. S. Hodgson, of the First M. E. church
officiating. Mr. Hallowell is a young man
of rare excellence of character, with a prom
ising future before him. Miss Randall has a
large circle of friends and acquaintances,
and no one is more popular and beloyed
within that circle than herself. The wed
ding took Mace at the residence of Mrs.
M. R. Doyle, where a bountiful repast was
served up to the few invited guests. Many
choice and beautiful presents were made to
Hon. James Hamilton, one of Stunner's
leading spirits, a gentleman who has been
tried in many responsible positions and
never found wanting, was in the city yester
day. The last Republican convention of his
county formally named him as a candidate,
and &s Sumner's first choice, for state treas
urer, which action shows in what esteem he
is held by those who know him best, Mr.
U. is not only a very popular man but a
thorough-going, reliable business man, who
has many friends in Sedgwick county and
in the city of Wichita.
Mr. O. Phillips, of Salem, called last even
ing. As is known Mr. P. is making a fight
on the railroad bonds. Mr. Phillips' fight
is not one of policy, not one made with ref
erence to values or decreased values, of high
or low taxes, but he is opposed to the prin
cipal of subsidies opposed to one man vot
ing a debt upon any other man. We found
Mr. Phillips very reasonable and fair.
