THE KANSAS MIDLAND RAILWAY CO.
Tho directors of this company are now
prepared to submit to our tax-payere a pro
position for bonds in aid of this important
lino of road for their approval and endorse
ment, and asking that they give the enter
prise, by their signatures to tho petition and
vote; at the polls, such encouragement as
will secure to our city this invaluablo rail
As in our issue of the 9th inst. we pointed
out tho richness and fertility of tho section
to bo traversed by this lino of road, and tbe
many advantages that will naturally accrue
to our vigorous and progressive city by its
construction, we will not dwell on thoso
points now. It is sufficient for us to say
that the Midland will open up a new, rich
and growing section of our state.now greatly
in need of railroad facilities, and which will
bo amply ablo to support ft railway from
tho moment it is open for business, and can
not fail to make this road ono of the best
paying roads in tbo state or in any portion
of the western country.
Such a rond, drawing as it will tho trade
from the splendid region that it will trav
erse, is certain to provo of great and lasting
benefit to our city and county, and is sure to
receive substantial and'libcrel encourage
ment from our merchants and all our pao
pie. It needs no word of ours to convince
tho tax payers and citizens that they will be
serving their best interests and adding to
their material wealth and prosperity by giv
ing their hearty support to tbo bonds in aid
of this enterprise.
Wo tako it that tho citizens of Wichita
havo a sufficiently keen appreciation of the
city's interests to cndoKo this rcova and
vototbo bonds with the same unanimity
that ha3 characterized their action hitherto
m liko enterprises, and tho Eaolk predicts
for this railway earnest and cordial support
from all tho cities and towns and counties
through which it will pass.
Mr. Dcacy, tho president of tho construc
tion company, holding tho contract for tho
construction and equipment of tho Midland,
accompanied by somo of tho officers and
directors of tho railway company, will early
in tho coming week proceed over tba entire
lino with a view of meeting the leading citi
zens and railway committees at tho different
cities and towns on the lino and presenting
tbo petition of the railway company for
bonds to aid in tho construction of tho road.
Wo trust and bclievo they will receive a
hearty welcome and earnest co-operation
among tbo people they will meet.
Wo shall watch with interest tho progress
of this great entcrpriso and will do all in
our power to compass its final and complete
success; for by to doing wo feel wo aro con

of tho most flourishing days in tbe history
of this city. Everyono felt happy. Stimu

office, where I wan introduced to Col. D.L.
Sullivan of Kansas City, who is here visiting
his friend W. F. Green. Mr. Sullivan said
that Wichita has gono beyond tbo timo for

ono of tho surest signs cf her greatness is

Mr.Sulliransaid that Russel Sago had stated
that tbo west was the salvation of tho coun
try, and it is this feeling which is prompting
all tho great trunk lines to pull into Kansas,
which leads every other stato in tho Union.
He said also that there would be no moro
packing houses built east of tho Mississippi
and that Kansas City and Wichita will bo

As tho day advanced and real astato bu.-i

manly looking sign which his neighbor, a
clothing man, had set out, and ho bowed
and smiled at it and determined to enrich it
by selling it a lot or perhaps a wholo nddit

dertook to shako hands with tho bogus
strango capitalist. Ho wouldn't shake.
Tbo subject of tho location of tho Chicago,
Rock Island & Pacific railroad depot in this
city agitated tho public mind greatly yester
day and very likely will for somo timo to

Beacon itself is now satisfied it didn't I told
you so. Tho Beacon would like to say now
that tho depot will bo on South Main street,
but it don't dare do it.
A $50,000 JOD.
Ono of the largest siles mado yesterday
was by Hotchkiss & Wheeler, who sold 170

joining it for $50,000. Tbo farm belonged
to tho heirs of Isaac Coley. An eastern
company bought it. For reasons tho pur

LITTLE RIVER STREET RAILWAY.
At a meeting of tho directors of the Littlo
River Street Railway company held in the
county building yesterday, it was decided to
begin tho construction of tho line at once
and the secretary was instructed to order

C R. Miller, president of tho Citizens

very reticent when ye newspaper men come

of course is all right, as they are no busi

to be silent, but we will be very sorrv to
hear that they contemplate a move. Au

There is a slight error in tho above, but
Mr. Miller has been to Auburh and his in

gotiations have been ia progress for some

held at 1L G. Lee's office tomor

purpose of making definite arrangements to

THEY MEAN BUSINESS
Mwsrs. A. G. Luccy, Henry Strother, Dr.
John Hall and Mr. Merkins, of Marshall,
Mo., arrived in tLo city yesterday. Thoy
came in quest of real esUte. Mr. Lacoy
was hero somo weeks ago and bought somo
property, which ho 1ms since told, realizing
a profit of $2,500. So ho returns with his
friends to miko an improvement on that
turn. Thoy will remain in this city somo
days watching tbo ri-il tW.o thermometer
and apply tl.eir cipilrel at thu Ijest points.
"How about thu city market!" said a gen
tleman, whohus lived in the city somo time,
to nn Eaolk npr scntativo 1 1 tterdiy.
On being in-i'.ed to tul! mi bo knew ofthe
subject proposed, hogayo himself up to a
prolonged talk on tho mntt-r.
"Well," heconlinuoJ, "II ain't been long
sinco no one thought we over would need a
city market but this year has demonstrated
the fact th-.t wa aro now ir. ncd of ono and

Many of our farmers nro making com
plaints and say thoy aro very desirous that
tbe city would afford a place where all can
sell or buy. Of course everyone knovisall
tbo advantages that would bo connected
with having a market, so that point need
not be dwelt upon.
Other cities not a3 largo as Wichita havo
a well equipped market and centrally lo
cated bo as to bo convenient. The advisa
bility of buying a market soon can readily
bo seen, as it will cost much less now than
in the future. As it is needed and now is
undoubtedly tho best timo to put it opera'
tion, there can be no question but that the
affair should entertain our city authorities
at tho earliest moment."
Two joint conventions wcro held yctcr-
duj afternoon, ono at Justice Walker's
court J and tho other in Squire Thomas' of

conventions by officers and wouldn't come
if they could help it. Thcro were seven at
each office, thus dividing tho work nicely
This scribo has recorded tho proceedings of
many a convention sinco tho delivcranco of
the Israelites, but never has ho caught onto
ono where tho delegates wcro all of ono

delegate was a candidate and was elected
to jail the term of offico being thirty days
and tho salary $100 each, which tho success

tho court instead of getting paid for his own
Tho foregoing translated into English is
that fourteen joints wcro raided and the poor
fellows caught at tho wheel, fined $100 and
ordered to jail for thirty days. Somo paid
and somo didn't. It was a big haul, and who
would havo thought that thero were so many
joints in a quiet town liko this.
ALONG THE LITTLE RIVER.
It is a pity, but nevertheless a fact, that
many persons from tho cast who como here
to see our city, aro permitted to go away
without seeing the most attractive portions
of it. They are shown around where there
aro lots for sale by real cslato men. and have
perhaps a fair view of t om of our bt bus!
ncss and residence streets, but cine out of
every tea go away without visiting the
charming sylvan retreats, nor feasting their
vision on the rol!y beautiful scenery about
the bends of the Little Arkansas. The
winding curves of that Sno stream, with its
deep drooping fringe of green branches,
viewed at sunset or sunrise, or by tho light
of the raooa, are a sight rarely met.
Gentlemen and ladies vising the city should
be shown tbe attractions, as well as the hard
business aspect of our city. Take them rid
ing in the evening, or boat riding by moon
light, or by the electric lights that will soon
shine over Riverside park, and it is needless
to say that after seeing tho life and bustle ot
our streets, these recreative surroundings
will add greatly to their appreciation cf our

Judge Glenn had a few hard cases yester
day: OIlio Douglas, for following aa unlaw

THIEVES ON DECK.
"The thieves seem to be holding a good
fist now," said a gentleman yesterday who
had one hand on his pocket-book and the
other on his gold watch and wore an effus
ion that indicated that he had almost come
to the conclusion that he would look on all
with an eye of suspicion.
"Well what are we going to do about it,"
said his nearest neighbor, who from his ap
pearance was evidently a little uneasy about
the matter himself.
"There ought to be something done about
it and that very soon," said tho
first gentleman in reply. It has become
evident from the latest reports that there is
an organized gang in tho city that makes a
haul whenever their beer money runs out.
This thing is getting monotonous, especially
to those who are made tho victims. If this
thing continues much longer, some action
should be taken by tbe city to ferret out
these scoundrels at any expense. It can bo
done, and wo all know tho plan that will
work, and although it cost, it should bo fol
lowed. In fact no ono doubts who are
tbe thieves that lurk around the
city. It , is a very easy
matter to know it, but of course to catch
them and provo it is another question alto
gether. If they continue to shovo them
selves to tho front I think we can run them
out of tho town in a very oldfashionod
This gentleman who took the lead in tho
conversation seemed to bo very much inter
ested in tho question, and his opinions were
listened to with interest by all present
THE STREET CAR BRIDGE.
Tho building of a street car bridge over
the Great Arkansas has been discussed timo
and again, bat nothing yet has been defin
itely settled in regard to it. After tho com
pany bad failed to obtain the right of way
over tbe wagon bridgo on tho avenue, thero
was talk of building it across on Second
street and over to the fair ground, but as
that fair ground is not a permanent fixture
that scheme wouldn't pay. A movo was on
foot to build abridge over tho river on somo
street south of the avenue, but nothing has
been heard of that lately. Tho street car
lino is to bo built out to the Catholic female
seminary and to tbo Garfield university this
year sometime, therefore a bridge will soon
bo necessary. Tho proper thing to do in
this connection is to build another bridgo
alongside tbe present ono on Douglas avo
nue. This would bo best for all parties and
would accommodate tho greatest number.
THE KANSAS MIDLAND.
The following named Boston capitalists
have been guests at tho Manhattan for tbe
past two days: W. T. Babcock, who is a
bank director; A. A. Phipps, treasurer of
the Kansas Midland railroad; F.W. Barbour
and F. H. Cunningham. Theso gentlemen.
wo understand, aro hero for the two-fold
purposo of investing in real estate and in tbo
interest of tho Kansas Midland railroad. Wo
understand that petitions will be circulated
in tho city today for signatures, asking that
a special city election bo called for tho
purposo of subscribing $40,000 to tho capl
tal stock of tho road. Township proposl
lions will bo submitted in somo of tho town
ships through which the road passes.
Thi will be one of tho most important of
our roads, and tho amount asked from this
city is less than has boon given by privato
parties for college?, and, of course, thero
will be no opposition to tho proposition.
THE OPERA HOUSE.
In fpito of very warm weather, a good
sized audienc witnessed the "Danites" at tho
Opera house last evening. The gallery was
crowded and tho flor comfortably seated.
JlitS Mooro may well feel complimented by
tho reception given her firt appearance
To thofe to whom the "Oanitcs" is not
familiar, it may bo aid the plot i3 laid in
tho wild west, particularly in tho Sieras of
California, and tho "Uamto." wcro tho ruth
less tarJ-hearted avengers of Joseph
Smith, the Mormon prophet's death. Mr.
Williams, the father of tho heroine, was ono
of thoir victims as was also all tho mem
bers of his family with the single exception
of Miss Nancy. 'Her death is attempted but
sho is saved miraculously and lives for
years di.'guised as a miner in a rough
mining camp; finally she is saved by tho
killing of her inhuman pursuers.
Mi3 Bello 3Ioore is an ambitious young
actress, now making her third starring tour.
Sho is bright, passionately vivacious, and
throws into tho dual character of "Xancy
Williams" and "Billio Piper," that depth of
feeling that won her audience from her ap
pearance on tbe stage. Sho was thrco
times called before tho curtain. "Sandy
Mageo" by Frank Ucnnig, and the judge by
Thad P. Varney wcro both well sustained.
T. M. Hardy as "John 'Wilson" and Ida
Kobison a? "Captain Tommy" were lato ad
ditions to tho company and if this bo their
first appearance they bid fair to mako suc
teises of their respective characters.
Tho character of "Iluldah" by Miss Maud
Midyley, and of "Washeo Wasbee" by
Louis Kagan gave satisfaction.
Tomorrow ovening tho same company
will render tho "Mountain Pink." This
play is tho Ono in which Miss Mooro first
achieved success and in which sbo stands
without a rival. From the expression of
satisfaction it can bo safely predicted a very
largo audience will greet her.
The following is from tho Topcka, Kan..
Considering tho extrcmo warm weather
the audience was much larger last night at
tho Crawford opera house than was ex
pected, and all present were delighted with
the play. Tho atory of the play is intensely
interesting and tho acting of this company
is good throughout. MUs Bella Mooro as
tho Mountain Pink is certainly a very
charming actress and at once wins favcr in
tho eyes of the audience. Harold Wilmot.
a Xow Yorker, who finally is instrumental
in bringing about a great change in tho
mountain people, is a very clever actor.

The building will be 120x100 and four
