The Chicago of tho southwest is making a
brilliant record in suicides, scandals and ro
mantic adventures cf late, fit food for tho
Police Gazalo or Xcns. Timn was when
parties bent on a high old time, betook
themselves to Chicago and still later to
Kansas City, but now the high tide of ro
mance end irregularities of conduct, ap
pears to roll down upon tho metropolis of
tha Arkansas valley.
Last Friday morting tho Santa Fe train
bore to this city a Ttspcctable young citizen
of Kansas City, whose mission pned to bo
s bunt for a truant sister, and ns ho left
with her on yesterdaj'a cast-bound train his
search may be said to have been successful.
Tho sttry, as bunted down by an Eagke re
porter, reveals a shocking condition of hu
man depravity among uotn singlo and
doublo individuals of both seics. Tho
names of all partiss concerned in tho affair
In question tro well known to the reporter
and the gentlemen are very well known to
him, but it would never do to give the
whole thing away.
The story runs in this wise: A certain old
maid who lives at Kb. Water street, and
who has been making her living by sewing,
being overcome by tho beat of tho past two
or three weeks, conceived tho idea cf going
out nmoiig tho nfighboring towns to can
vass fur something in the lino of female at
tire, but Leforo leading sho desired to D
thin' - ia could draw soma rci.t from
htr Accordingly she leased one
00 gentlemen and another to ono
gen i tsen sno nctoolt herseli to
the riots to pursue her canvassing.
Las. .ay night on tha arrival of tLo
Sac .-cnjjer train from the cast, a
he , 'g two fair specimens of the
tenti1- T.tion drovo up to the old maid's
maBtioa ..d tbo dri cr gavo the gentlemen
renter.. Ira racket tbat tbe hotels were all
full and thit bis fair passt-ngers could not
find suitable accotnmc-dations anywhere in
town. On absorbing this plausible story
through bis wool tho gentleman who occu
pied tho room by himself with commenda
ble gallantry volunteered to give up bis
room to the stranded ladies and take pot
luck himself. Tho fair creatures
cheerfully accepted the situation and
tbo room and made themselves
at home. Pr sently tbe hack returned with
their trunks and all was lovely. Xot long
after the hack made its appearance again
and two well known married men, promi
r.ant in business in this city, alighted and
escorted tbrnuclvcs into tho apartment oc
cupied by the fair Kansas City fljwers.
This kind of a racket materially arrousc-d
tbo curiosity of the two gentlemen occupy
ing tha other room in ths bouso and they
kept track of things. Thursday cimo and
found tho froliekEome females in possession
of tho young man's room, arid during tho
djy one of the fair creatures eiposcd her
self in an cstrcmcly decolletto fashion, a Ia
Mother Hubbard, only i good deal more sc,
which indiscretion scandalized the neigh
bors, but there was no real kick until Thuis
day night, when bo bold in came tbo
old maid proprietress eftbc bouo and then
there was sbcjl to pay, and and nothing to
pay it with. Tbu old nmi'J dcmaudsl $-5
each from tbo ladies but they didn't have it,
a:.d tbsn the neighbors advised her to hang
on to the trunks. Hero was 3 ttlema: what
in heaven's -.anie was to be done? Th Lo-
tiiriiM canw to the re-cue, tho money ts
tiaul and tho back that boro tho fair
but frail damsels to the old maid'
house, agsm conveyed them to other quar
ters, not quito so reputablo as tho placa they
had left. Then on Friday mornii'g camj the
young and highly rcpcctablo brother of ono
of tho emigrants in search of his sister, who
by this timo had agreed to begin work as a
waiter at the Manhattan yesterday morning,
but the brother broke into tho! arrange
ments. He traced tho girls to the old
maid's residenco and from ono cf tbo room
ers tbero got onto tho wholo racket. Ono of
thtso gentlemen carno up town with tho
sorely distressed brother in search cif the
conllemon who had so unceremoniously vis
ited tho girls, and when near tho door of the
tclfgraphoulceopo oftboLotharios was se-'n.
"There i$ oco of tho men," said ths gu.do
Presently, 3 luck would have it, ip stepped
tbe othr, and fcas pointed out to tbo angry
brot' - " he two denied all knowledge of
ths vhercabouts of tho girls and de

whom she did not love, because, though
rich, bo had long crossed tho equator of life,

California has promised to do herself
proud and we believe will literally redeem
her word pledged at Portland, "that tho old
vets shall tread tho streets of her metroplis
on a carpet of roses." The program in
cludes excursions to all points of interest at
exceedingly low rates. We learn that some
of tho Wichita party, which leoves here
Monday evening tho 20th on a special
sleeper, chartered for tho outgoing trip,
after seeing tho sights via tho Santa
Fe, including Los Angles and vicinity, and
whatever is to bo seen in California; will
lake steamer passage to Portland returning
again to San Francisco, will go up tho Sac
ramento valley via Central Pacific to Ogden.
Hero a few stalwurt members of the party
will branch off to Beaver canyon where
they will tako stago for the Yellow Stone
Park. Others nill go on to Salt Lakoand
personally investigate the Mormon question.
It may be possible that ono or more
will straggle at this point to be taken up by
tbe rear guard. Those who are not home
sick but desire to prolong their absence in
the pleasures or a sy vlan retreat, so to speak,
will change cars at Pueblo, (on the return
trip, mind you) and do Manitou and the
hundred and one places that find their niehe
on tho eastern slope of tbe rockies. Here is
richr.es tho wholo way through, even to
tbo Sunday afternoon visit in 'Frisco to the
Chinese quarter, which Hank Heiserman
and Jesse Ask aro secretly holding in con
templation, Michael Block, who knows,
says tho time to visit California is in July
and August, Tbo toothsorao pear, the
peach that was "formerly of Kansas," the
plum that grew in the back yard at home,
when wo old codgers were boys, the fig and
tho apricot, to say nothing of oranges and
grapes. AH these, and more, in their juicy
ripeness, and for (.11 the pleasures thi3 trip
promises, tbo bugaboo of a hot rido throngh
an alkali desert for a few hours, should de
ter no ono from making a trip that will be
a green spot in their memory for ever alter.
Owing to tbo extrcmo heat and drouth,
there was a visible decline io business of all
sorts last week. This is especially noticablo
in real estate Notwithstanding tbat tho
list of transfers has been constantly tum
bling down, there have been many good
snles made and there is no weaken
ing in prices. Thero were but few
ssles of high priced business property and
the eastern portion of tbe city attracts tho
most attention. Tho location of tho Bock
Island road on Mead avenue and the activ
ity tdiown by that company in preparing for
immediate work in this city, ba3 had the
effect of booming that pirt of town. Busi
ness property now seems to settle down in
about tho following shape: Ketail trade
and light goods such as dry goods and no
tion,"Ma:n street and Dougla? avenue, with
at tendency to branch out from ono to two
blocks in cither direction on the streets in
tersecting Ihiso two thoroughfares, in tho
central portion of tbe city. Fbo wholesale
groceries and hoavy goods, Water street
north of.Douglas, on the wst side andFourth
and Meid avenues on tho et side of
town. Th? object of this is to be
cbi'o onougb to tho railroad to
got a switch or ide track to their houses.
It was thought that Steele fc Walker, the
St. Joseph grocers, who are at precnt do
ing business in John Exton's building, were
to occupy the new block being built next to
it on tho west, but that is a mistake. Tbey
crtild not get a tide track to thir bouso
tbcr, there foro tbey contracted nitb How
ard Friond to buiid them a house
50x130 feet, threo stories bigb,
and with a basement seven fi-ct in height tbo
full length and breadth of the building.
They have given a botid to leaso it for a
term of five years when completed at an
annual rental of $2,000. Tho building is to
bo located on tho corner of Water and First
streets and is to be fiaished January 1st.
Kellogg & Son, tho architects, have tho
plana about ready and say tho building will
co.t 12,000. Since tbo contract was mado
Mr. Friend hu sold tha property and lease
to C. It. Miller, and the bitter gentleman told
a reporter yesterday that ho intended to be
gin the building right away. It is to be
supplied with vaults and elevators, and bo
in all respects suitable for a first-class whole
sale grocery house.
Tho Wichita street railway company
built about a mile of track during tho week
and bayo set their stakes down on Topoka
avenuo us far as Douglas. Work is pro
gressing on tbo Garfield Unit ersity and tho
walls of the new Catholic church aro climb

IN HIS MIND.
A prominent man was in a Wichita lunch
counter yesterday and whilo chewing awaj
tho lunch counter man. talking to some
Wichita fellows, cave Winilold sheol from
tbo word go. Wichita, he said, got all of
Wuifield s money; even the intield preach
ers came up thero lor their beer. The lunch
was 25 cents. Tho Winfield man handed
over a two-dollar bill. Tho president of the
cold bean laboratory handed back $4.75.
Ho was so busy heaping anathemas on Win
Sold that t jo (Jueen City man hated to inter
rupt him, proving that Wichita always gels
tho bulk, shoved it in his pocket and came
homo with u good joko and 52.75 ahead.
Any one acquainted with Wichita peoplo
will set this down as a lie, because the
peoplo hero bother themselves ve-ry little
about Winfield. Tho namo is seldom heard
when some Winfield man is
tho idea that anybody hero
bothers himself about that thriving little
village exists only in tho minds of that
people Probably tbero are not threo lunch
counter men in Wichita who knows there is
such a place as Winfield on earth, and if
thero is any truth in tho Courier's itcn
which is very improbable, tholunchcro prob
ably felt like offering that extra charo as a
bonus to seo a man from what he supposed
to be a foreign country.
The gang ot thieves captured the other
night was up before Justice Thomas last
night with tbe following result:
James Mooro and James Thompson were
arraigned as vagrants and were only too
glad to plead guilty. They were sentenced
to sixty days in the county jail, which will
dispose of them for the present.
John B. Curry, the boss of the gang, was
arraigned for burglary and larceny, break
inc into McClintock's store last January
being the specific act charged in the indict
ment. He pleaded not guilty and his case
will be heard on Monday morning, at which
time a formal complaint will be made
against George Zinn.
It arpears somewhat doubtful if convict
ing evidence can b.e got to send the?e tel-
lows to tbo pen. Tbi dctectivr uho wn
put on their track was a plucky fellow, but
not a skilful detective, and it appears b
Jack Curry was too smart forbirn anc rw vr
gnve anything away. The whole niittr if
so plain asd tbe reputation of tbe partirr m
well known that skilful manipulation of th
whole crowd and the woman ought to bring
out the facts.
