THE WICHITA DAILY EAfclJE: WICfitfX KANSAS, SUNDAY M0RN1N& JULY 4, 1886.
H. II. KURDOCK, Editor.
SUXDAY MORNING. JULY 4.
ti.o nrnaoni lolnirranh editor of the
Wichita Eagle is a good one. His
(.n.a rsp feWrftins arc by far the
best in the state. Wilson County Cit
izen. Coming, as this docs, from the raoBt
n.riminntin(r editorial writer in
Kansas, our vanity is accordingly
The population of Wichita is 20,129.
and its taxiblc valuation lacks only
$76,000 of amounting to four million
dollars. It is the third city of Kaasas.
Wilson County Cili7en.
Name the first and second, please.
Wichita is the first city in Kansas in
everything that goes to make up a
city, except in the number of its pop
ulation, and we are not sure that wo
don't lead in that particular.
While the senate was considering
some amendments to the legislitive
appropriation bill, Senator Allison
took occasion to contradict the ptatc
ments made on the floor of the houe
that that body had Paved $800,000 by
cutting down the appropriations in
the bill, and showed that tho saving
was not the result or Dcmocratice con
only but from other causes wholly
irrelevant to party politics. Thus,
one by ouc, the bubbles of cowrcit arc
punctured and democratic boasting is
dissipated like the mists.
Miss Rose Cleveland, iu a letter to
the publishers of the Chicago iiuga
zinc.Literary Lifc.rclatlve to assuming
cdilorial charge of that publics ion,
pays the wc?t a very high compli
ment in the following spntencc: "I
hnvn nlivnvo fllOUht VCrV llizllly Of
tlm wMtmi nconle from the brilliant
types I met in Washington. The
business of conquering new regions
briugs forth ami develops the finest
elements of character in the western
man, who is rejuvinated by contact
with a soil that seems to throb with
electricity." When Mis3 Cleveland
combs west and U brought in cou'act
with its electrifying soil she, too, will
no doubt becomo rejuvinated and her
sparkling scintillations become more
brilliant. The subtle eouitic of the
staid and prim tocial regime of the
cast tint has given bent to her mode
. of thought will be dibsipatcd by Jho
fresh atmosphere of the west that has
been rarillcil by the cli-rtrical currents
of new thoughts and aspirations. In
conquering tho new regions ol the
west it will be a wonder if f-hc, hcr-f-elf,
is not made a captive.
A reliable business man from Marion
county iufornio no that it is being rep-
rpipiitoil bv Ncwlon liarties thit if
certain townships between Marion
Center and Newton will vote bonds
for a new line for the Chicago and
Eock Island via Newton, that the lat-
tor nlaee will make un the difference
between the county bonds voted by
Marion and that the road will be de
flected to Newton, leaving out l'cabody
and Wichita, and that Newton has
pledges to that effect. Such talk is
the merest rot. The Chicago and
Rock Islaud will romc directly to
Wichita and piaclically over the
Omaha and Abilene line. There is no
questiou about. In fact tho Chicago
and Uock Island fitht determined to
come into Kansas largely through
efforts made by representative busi
ness men of Wichita. This city has
been one of their principal objective
points from the ery Mart. As for
tho Rock Islaud management no one
need have any Tears that it will play
false to any representation or prom
ises made by it.

In memoriam of Clinton Ralph Trc
ler, who leaving Whichita, where he
had gouo for medical aid, at 8:30 a. m ,
Tuesday, Juno 28th, arricd at home
10:30, n few minutes before ho died;
aged 25 years. While coming home
he seemed perfectly conscious, and ad
miring and talking of the objects be
fore him, liille thinking hi- eyes would
be closed iu death to soon. Glancing
back in life's narrow pith a jcar ago,
we tec this loved one full or ambition,
his heart throbbing at tho thought of
the work that laid before him iu life.
He had, through his own energy,
gained a good reputation, yet he liim
gred for more knowledge that ho
might be more uclul to hi country
and the many friends who surrounded
him. Oh, the pride that lurked in
the parents hearts as they looked ou
their true and noble son. Ho
walked with a quick jet firm step,
and his carriage was erect, which
spoke of true manhood at heart, but
consumption, that dread disease which
lias blasted so many lives, hunted him
out of his hippy aild apparently safo
abode. Slou ly ho faded ; each second,
2ach minute, each hour ho became
weaker; each day when the sun rose
in the far ea-t, throwiug a glorious
light on all nature, unking the world
appear more kiud, ho seemed to gain
uewvigor, but a9 it glided far above
his head and eauk into the west, the
fearful di-eac was slowly doing its
work separating tho soul and body.
And so tho days pissed until a year
went by, and with all the pride and
ambition he yet retained he could not
keep the enemy nt bay, and now ho
lies with the seal of death upon his
brow. He has at last fouud a safe re
treat and a full fruition of all his hopes
with tho Giver of all knowledge. As
wo laid him away to rest the rain
came gently dowu from heaven, as if
to soften the clods as they fell on his
loved and lifeless form. But, oh 1 the
mourncVs. The father and mother,
who had reared this boy (as he yet
seemed to them) with such care ; the
brothers and sisters. Oh I God their
anguisliA-and 6orrow, their hearts
wrung to almost bleeding, how could
they give him up I This brother and
son whom they had loved so long.
But, with a second thought, they
could see him where love, joy and
comfort reign, waiting patiently for
them there as a bright star beckoniug
to them to keep in tho path which
leads to him.
Aid for the C. Wood Da is or Itock
Island line is being voted all through
the northeast part of the state. The
date lor submitting the proposition to
Barber county has not been decided.
If we bad that road wc would have
a competing line and a direct one to
Chicago. There is hardly a doubt
bat that it will receive the aid whea
it k called for. Cresset.

A QUEER RELIC
John Swiuton is furnished tho fol
lowing peculiar prediction of an as
trologer, originally published in a tri
weekly of Jamaica, in 1879:
"In 1887 tho star of Bethlehem will
once more be seen in Casseopia's chair,
and it will be accompanied by a total
eclipse of the sun and moon. This star
only makes its appearance every 315
years. It will illumine the heavens
and exceed iu brilliancy even Jupiter
when iu opposition to the suu, and
therefore nearer to tho earth and
brightest. The marvelous brilliancy
nfthRRtar of Bethlehem in 1887 will
surpass any of its previous visitations.
It will be seen even at noonday shin
ing with a quick flashing light the en
tire year; after which it will disappear,
not to return to our heavens until the
year 2202. This is the star which shouo
so brightly in the year4 B.C., and is
the star which illumed the heavens at
the nativity of Christ. The apperance
of this star, accompanied as it will bo
by solar and luuar crlip3cs together
with the baleful influence that follows
the position which Mars and Saturn
will then occupy, will cause a universal
war. North America will be invovled
iu civil strife, and a leign of terror
will prevail iu the Allautic states, un
less a Napoleon shall arise to quell it.
There will be a war of classes the
rich will array themselves against the
poor and vice versa everywhere."
There have been comparatitely few
instances uf suicide among the occu
pauls of the thrones of modern times.

to remote him and appoint his nephew

THE KANSAS FREIGHT POOL.
A few weeks since the general
freight agents or the Atchison, Tope
ka and Santa I-V, the Southern Kansas
aud Missouri Pacific, all lines inter
ested in Central Kansas freight mat

fics-ion several days. When the meet

made that a pool had been formsd,
and all that remained to be done was
to fix the percentages and appoint a
commissioner, it being staled that
Geo. W. Lillcy, of SL Louis, would
likely be the man. It is now devel

is tho custom with railroad compan
