land adjoining the city on the west,

Mr. Wight, on the other band, if he

one who will build. We are in a
fair way to have anew opera house

A Goodly Attendance The Time Mostlr
Ocenpled With Complaint Asalnst
the Sllssoarl I'sclflr.
About forty members wre in at
Jendence Monday night at the board
of trade meeting. In the nb.-ence of
President Ober, Mr. K- A. lvitt
was chosen president pro Urn.
The resolution of Oscar Seltz,
offered at a pre riousmeetlt'g. to re
duce the borad of directors from 24 to
8 and the executive committee from
9 to 5 as a" work! ug forco" was de
cided not to have been ottered In Its
regular manner, as the constitution
would have first to be changed.
The resolution passed at tho last
meeting providing that members
may be suspended after being In
arrears for dues for a period of sixty
days, was discovered to be impera
tive by reason of the by-laws spool
ing that niuety days shall intervene
sueh delinquency, and was so de
clared by the chair. The by-laws
must be revised before the chango
can be made.
A report iu tbe shape of a formal
complaint to the Inter-state Com
mission, iigalnst the Missouri Pacific
Hallway Compauv for continuous
overcharges on the line from St.
Louis to Salina, was presented by
C. H. Martin, chairman of the com
mittee of live previously appointed.
The report was quite comprehensive
and filled nlnj pages of legal cap.
Comparative lines, both of the Mis
souri system, between St Louis nnd
Salina, and between Louisville. Ne
braska, and Chit-ago, each a distance
of 45 miles, were taken up, aud it
wa shown that from -Vi to 7S per
cent, more wa charged on the Sali
na roail than on tbe Louisville, witli
material advantages to the Saliua
line through cheapness of construc
tion, less number of bridges, etc.
It was further siinwn iu the discrim
ination that an average of but live
cents per hundred pounds was charg
ed for the increased 2fW miles from
Chicago to Sslina over the Chicago
& Alton, Missouri Pacific, and other
roads, 'pooled lines' which exceed
ed the distance from St Louis to
Salina, thus depriving Salina largely
of the benefits to be derived from St.
Louis as a comieting point with
Chicago iu tbe matter of shipments
of goods to and Irom the fomier city.
This course of tho Mi.-souri Pacific
was a cleared violation of the Inter
state law, and the apjeal couched in
tbe terms of the complaint aimed to
remedy tbe existing defects. S. H. H.
Clark, vice-president of tbe Mo.
I'ac, it was explained, had been con
ferred with iu reference to the cause
or the grievance, and Mr. C. B.
Lewis, of the same system, had ar
rived.iu Saliua, In September last.and
notwithstanding Mr. Lewis had ac
knowledged a wrong existed, nothing
had been done in tbe premises. Mr.
Martin further stated that the Mis
souri Pacific had charged one Saliua
gentleman a greater rate than an
other Saliua gentleman for tho same
class of freight. He quoted from tho
Daily Journal of last Friday to
sIiom- by the figures adduced that a
gnevious extortion was practiced on
Saliuaaud tul portion of Kansas. He
estimated from the computations of
the Journal, that the people of Sa
liuecouuty were paying tribute to
the Missouri Paolllc in amount vary
ing from $2bO,UUQ to $250,000 per mi
lium through this excessive over
charge. He explained that if the
board of trade adopted the report, he
would see that it was put iu proper
shaieby having it printed, and pre
sented to the Commission for Us
consideration. The board of trade of
the oity of St. Louis desired to act in
concert on tills and other similar
cases aud proposed grouping them
for tne united aetion of the Commis
misslon. A motion to receive and adopt the
report of the committee was finally
passed after considerable discussion;
the amendment of P. Q. Bond to in
definitely postpone the considera
tion of the report, farther than to
receive it, having first been defeated
by a vote of more than two to one.
Mr. Bond stated In explanation
of his amendment that he did not
deem it wUe to antagonize the Mis
souri Pacific in view of the fact that
we were now asking that com
pany to build the northern counec
tioh, and indulged in nomc remark
indicating that the road might be
built from some other town if the
proposed action embraced in the
complaint was carried forth to tin
Commission. His ideas were en
dorsed to some extent by Mr. Pike
and one or two others.
Messrs. White, Pearson, Wells,
Whitehead and others spoke in op
position to the amendment and views
of Mr. Bonds, and they urged as an
inceptive to the establishment of
manufactories and wholesale houses
at Salina that we should havechea
eued freight rates.
The sentitnnet was decidedly ad
vene to prolonging this question of
freight rates as involved in the Issue
with the Missouri Pacific, but with
the object of securing a further meet
ing the business men of Salina more
particularly interested in transpor
tation It was decided to postpone the
subject to tho next meeting be
fore instructing the president and
secretary of tbe board to sign the
complaint, preliminary to ts pre
sentation to the Interstate Commis
sion. A communication was read from
L. O. Wight, agreeing to sell to any
pert-cn a lot on Seventh street, be
tween Iron avenue and Ash street,
fojr one dollar who would build
thereon an opera house to cost $40,
1 00 the offer to continue in force
for the period of ten days.
Success fol Sappr.
The supper which was given last
Friday evening In the school house
No. 90, nine miles east of Salina, was
successful In every particular. The
bund went out from Salina, and In
spite of the chilling drizzling rain,
there was a "merrle companle" to
enjoy the good things provided by
the kind hands and hearts of tbe
people of the neighborhood. Over
$26 were cleared, from tbe liberal
patronage of those present. M. S.
Price helped to do it and by his aid
Miss Jennie McCartney's friends

was discovered by tho oeoupants to
be on fire. The waterworks whistle
and fire bell very promptly gave forth
their warning, and tbe full fire de
partment and a large cavalcade of
citizens quickly arrived on the
ground. Two lines of hose were
stretched from hydrants to the burn
ing building, but Irom five to eight
minutes more was passed before a full
headway of water a supplied, as
the pressure at the waterworks build
ing had to be worked up and the ice
in the hose from use in filling tbe
engine of the Santa Fe, last week,
had to be thawed out.

built for Mr. Lill a two-story build

It cost is about $1,000. Only tbe

The fire originated from a defec
tive flue at the rear end of the second
story of the old buildiug. At one
time it was deemed imotible to
save either tbe old or the new build
lug, but by dint of strenuous exer
tion, the fire wa placed under sub
jections, entailing a loss roughly es
timated of about $900 on buildings,
furniture, household goods, weariug
apparel, bedding, etc. Mr. Llll car
ried an insurance of $40uouthe old
building and WOO on the furniture.
Much of tlie jtoods was r-aved, includ
ing the piano. It is calculated that
the damage to the new building is
about $100. The lower story of the
old building was scarcely singed but
the top -lory was etlectuullv demo
lished. It was a narrow escape, truly. The
II r- detriment boys worked like
trooM-rs, ami got many a cold dous

of Mr. Lill we return his most sincere

formed iu the presence of a large
clrcleoffrir lids and relations. Miss
Nettie Lunham presided at the
organ, and while the notes of a live
ly wedding march sounded through
the rooms, the bride and groom en
tered. The bride looked lovely as
all brides look she was becomingly
attired in a dark green silk the
corsage being adorned with natural
white roses. The ceremony was
brief but very iinpresslv. This
concluded, the warm congratula
tions and good wishes of the guests
were extended. An elegant supper
was then served, which was appre
ciated by all. After the feast the
mother of the bride gave each of the
young guests a package of cake to
dream over, which caused a great
dual of merriment. Tlie groom is a
gentleman of ability, a minister In
tho M. E. church aud Is now station

lady of many accomplishments and
will be greatly missed by her friends
in that community. The preseuts
were numerous, useful and elegant.
We noticed sonic beautiful gifts
from absent friends. The guetH
from Salina were Mr. and Mrs. D.
