As the hour approached Inst evening when
it was supposed tho city council would con
v ene 11 number of citizens w ere seen making
their way to the scene of war. At la-t the
moment arrived when tho news w as spread
fast that there would lie no meeting, ow lug
to some more sickness in the family. One of
tho eouncilmen was heard to say, on learning
there would bo no meeting, "I don't give a
d if their ain't a meotiug for a w eek."1
Some of the eouncilmen and many of the
peoplo present were very "much surprised
that there was no meeting, as
some business, it is claimed, of
sivcial importance demands the immediate
attention of the Solous.
When tho gavel fell in tho hands of his
honor, the ma or, the following memliers of
the council were present: Healy, Kichey,
Stone mid Kenyon.
Councilman Brown is still very sick and
Hod has been under tlie enro of a physician

stairs did not seem to strike "vvolP nnd
present niemliers of the council favorably, '
but it was o written aud it'
must be thus. IVfore th
Were dismissed. Attorney K. G. Ruggles en-,
j tcrtained Uie memliers a few minutes, and in '
his remarks impressed upon them the groat that tho papers had been stolen. Two loys
nocossity of a busiuoss meeting soon lieing 'were caught yoteniay morning follow
held. IIo sjioko aliout tlie Bitting Hro' ing up the delivery lmys. One of the loys
trouble ami said loth partii wero anxious ' who had jiapers iu his pcckcU ami shirt lios-
that something l done that would bring
about a settlement, and he w.is of the f.nin-
iou that tho council was tho most effective
arbitrator of that matter there was in the
city. As he believed its action in the matter
would ho an important one, he thought all
should make an effort to banish sickness from
tne family as soon as possible.
His remark completed the crowd poured
down the stairs.
Councilman P. V. Healy returned yester-
day from his trip to Minneapolis, and judg-
ing from tho way he looks ono would think
that sort of thing was healthy exercise, at
least for him. He has many thrilling deeds
of adventure and high sounding exploits to
relate, and tho boys think it comes bandy to
have him around while the weather
naughty and real estate callers are rather
slow to put in an appearance. Among the
blood stirring stories he boson deck is ono
in which ho saved the lives of a couple
who were accidentally dumped overboard in
tho river. Ho happened to lie near in a boat
and worked tho oars hard enough to arrive
in time to be useful.
He, of course, rojiorts lots of fun and a fino
jolly old timo. The party were all well and
"everyone happy. Ho does not seem to bo
ashamed to say that ho stole three Eagles
from Mr. John Exton, who put all tho blame
on Uncle Sam and expressed himself as being
about ready to boccde.
He Is yet of the opinion that Wichita and
Kansas is tho place for men of enterprise and
push to locate, as they can get more
for work exjcnded than anywhere ho
visited. Tho drouth here so mnch feared by
our people mid the subject of lielabored ar
ticles written by bomo out-state reporters
w ho w ere anxious to fill space and entertain
readers he considers nothing like as severe as
iu some districts though which he passed.
In some places wheat, oats, corn and hay
were all consumed by tho scorching rays and
he seemed happy to remark that Kansas was
still in tho lead and could boast of being tho
garden spot of tho w orld.
Ono thing decidedly noticeablo in
his trip was the great anxiety of
liooplo iu every town and city to learn of
Wichita. No sooner had they found out that
a lad was from this place than they began to
put question at him faster than a Philadel
phia lawyer could answer. They would oi-n
tho ball by saying they had heard bo and so
and so and so ami would end with n question
asking if the entire catalogue was true. On
being nssiiicd it was aud more ev eu than
that was tnio they would commenco tearing
their oelids apart aud wear a sort of "1
wonder expression." Ho relates having met
several who stated that they were coming
hero this fall to invest and
look uj) the facilities aforded
for starting various kinds of entorpi is.
Many would enquire about the business of the
city nud were anxious to learn if tuoro was
room for just ono mora in their profession.
Mr. Healy of course, lieing a thorough
bred Wichitaian, did not spare anything in
his efforts to tell of the superior advantages
afforded here for almost any kind of business.
His friends will give him credit of King
cqunl to tho emergency on every occasion
and do not fear tliat unyone who talked with
him received an unfavorable opinion of the
A IJVKIjY kuxaway.
Tho liveliest runaway of the week happen
ed last evening about 8 o'clock. Tho team
which took the most active part was hitched
to n heavy farm wagon, and was iu charge of
two bo s S and 9 ears of age, w ho w ere Jicd-
dling apples on the street. Near the gas
works tho ounger ono was left in charge of
the team, w hen they liecanie frightened nud
started down river street to Douglas avenue,
turned east, and with inci cased speed dashed
up the avenue to Main, where they turned
north. The stieet was crowded with peoplo
and vehicles, and there was quite an animat
ed scene as the wagon went forward, sending
samples of tho fruit on both sides to mnrk its
track. Tho v. agon grazed the wheels of sev
eral buggies, and a collision with the stieet
car was nvoided by the driver wav
ing a pajier from the rear platform liefore
the running team The spring v. agon of W.

them from catching the epidemic and start

ion, tho runaway were cn-ily uiptuiod in
front of tho Boyd boinling house. The re
porter nnived ut tho stopping placo n few
niuutes uftcrwnids, anil found tho lioot-
blacks and street gamins h iving quite a feast
out of the lcnuiiiis of the apples.
The little fellow to whom the horses lieloug-
isl came running tip ciy ing; and although
badly scared was so delighted at getting In
team that ho di ied his tears. Ho said his
name was Johnny llen-ou and mat lie and
his companion Charley Plauk had came
fiomono hundred and fifty miles cast of
Wichita to sell their wagon load of apples
and that they were encamped with a party a
mile northwest of the city.
There was little damage done to the wagon
or horses. Mr. Sullivan, however, says that
his vehicle is considerably used up, but ap-
pcuicd to lie too gl-id to think his hordes hail
not gotten from him to pay nny attention to
tho w agon
A Cor.NTKV STIMFIt
gentleman from Jamesburgh, a tuiall
town nine miles west of the city, says tho
voung men of tliat section are engaged in
piite a strife. Tliecountry appears to lie di
vided into two sections or feuds, one of
which has its strength iu the town, the
other iu the country. The troublo
originated f 10111 a fuueied insult by a country
lioy to a ouug lady of the town. Ever since
that time, al)ut two weeks ago, the bitter
feeling his 1ks.-ii growing; and now neither
lique seviiLs to scrapie to do mi thing to
harass or w orry tlioother. Thursday ev euingn
daueo was given under the supervision of the
town jarty, and tho girls who came were to
atistain from dancing with or even speakin;
to the rural faction. Their attempt to do
this In ought down the wrath of the country
lMisnnda general challenge to tight was
given, w huh w iu promptly accepted. Tho
lights were put out, the girls screamed,
fainted and interceded for pence. Black eves
nnd bloody noses were beginning to l scat
tered around promiscuously, when the con
stable arrived and broke up tho whole affair
and cweortxl part of tlio belligerauts to their
home. The gentleman states that the
troublo is not yet over, nnd that it may et
result seriously, as he hod just seen several
members of tlie sav eral factions arming them
selves with revolvers, which he fiars they
will lie recklesv, enough to use in the n"xt en
counter. noitsi: stkai.ixo.

Ho will stay in this section some-days looking

tho shocking crime. Ho is carefully watched
by a guard consisting of two gentlemen who

They do not seo that ho should be favored

Yestenlay afternoon tho air rev orberated
with tho war cries that came from a house of
ill shape located on the alley lietween Main
and Murket streets nud lstween First
and Second. Tho racket had not continued
long until a jioliceiii'in mado his appearance
upon the scene and served a a sort of a reg

so unexpectedly turned loose.
It seem that the racket was staitedbya

that a little more fuel added to the flames
would not bo amiss, rtndered their assistance.
No revolvers were actually brought into use,

of a battlefield. Some of the jiarties were es
