Till: DlfiHTON EXCURSIONISTS.
About thirty of the Dighton Excursionists
have returned from their trip yesterday.
While the party was not quite so large as it
was expected to be, yet enough went to make
a good M7cd and pleasant party. There was
quite a good sale of town lots taking into
consideration tue extrema warm wcatuer
whi"h hindered somewhat the attendance
upon the auction.
It seems that Sir. John Carpenter has ac
cepted the advice of many of his mends
who urged him to remain some weeks at Col
orado Springs befoie returning. The' had
fears tiiat he would not enjoy the remainder
of the hot season in Kansas, which was par
tial!' the cause of their producing the argu
ment they did. He v. ill not put in an ap
pearance for some time yet.
THE X. Y., STORE'S MANAGER.
The enterprising and ever ide awake man
ager of the New York Store, Sir. Cash Hen
derson, is at home again having spent two
Avceks in the New York wholesale markets.
He also put in somo time among the leading
retail establishments looking out for every
new and attractive article or color in the
lutesfc fashions. Cash's taste is so highly cul
tivated that he wants but a glance to compre
hend tho latest novelty in all details. His
trip seems to have rested him up at least ho
looks refreshed and happy.
ANOTHER IMG THING.
A very important jobbing house will be
planted in "Wichita in the near future by an
Oskosh manufacturing firm which will em
ploy a vast capital, and which will be the
bigglst thing of tho kind in the state. The
buildings and lots for the plant have been se
lected and .secured through one of our lead
ing citizens and who is our informant. There
is no question about tho enterprise, one of
the Oskosh firm having settled the matter by
his personal presence and inspection, and all
of which will be made public in a few days.

A PLEASANT EVENING.
Yesterday was tho twenty-second birthday
of Mr. Augustus Ginvst, the tuba player in
tho Knights of Pythias band. In honor of
the event the band lenaired to his homo on
South Emporia avenue last evening and dish
ed up a choice pi ogram of music. The lawn
in front of the l evidence was beautifully
lighted up with Japanese lanterns, and a
sumptuous lepast was served at a timely
hour. The evening was spent pleasantly by
all, and will Jong be lemeniboied.
At a lata hour the baud serenaded Mr.
Bachr of St. Louis, who is visiting his son
Joseph, who lives on North Tflfieka avenue.
Hon.jF. B. Coulter of Steubenville. Ohio,
is numbered among the late arrivals in the
city. He came here to attend to somo mat

beautiful country and a no less beautiful
city. Ho cannot yet exactly understand how

in the absence of smoke stacks and Hying

wholesale houso in this city made more clean
cash in a year than any iron mill or nail fac

time he was led to believe that western cities
had some foundation for permanent growth.
He w as further convinced of that facs when

Messrs. Fanner Doohttlo and C. Shaqv
neclc eated themselves- in a carriage yester
day morning with the avowed intention of
taking in the town. They left tho Tremont
under flying colors and followed the west

Some weeks ago an account was published
in the Eagle concerning the murder of a

THE C03IING CONTEST.
Arrangements have bsen made by Messrs.
Frank Oliver, Charles Mossbacker and Frank
Dale, for a crack game of bae ball at the
West Wichita fair ground between the Em
poria and Wichita clubs next Monday and
Tuesday. The games promise to be the best
ever played in this city. The homo team are
hard at w ork getting themselves in good
trim, and will be greatly strengthened by the
addition of three new players.
The winning club will get the gate money,
which owing to the much interest being taken
will doubtless amount to considerable.
The contest will bo a fair one
as no selliug out or monkey business will bo
allowed. Everything w ill be conducted in a
nice manner, as a large attendance of ladies
If the interest in base ball keeps in
creasing in the city it is expected that by
next spring it will bo represented by a crack
club which will gain admittance into the
state league. The boys arc beginning to tako
a pride in tho matter, which is suggestive
that; Wichita will havo an enviable reputa
tion in base ball circles as well as other
TUB EUSINESS ItLOCKS.
In making his rounds, the Eagle reporter
has watched day by day with interest the
progress made in the erection of the larger
business houses of th city.
In Wichita, bricks rise into walls with tho
same rapidity that has characterized the con
ception and completion. of the buildings of
which they form a part. Consequently where
a few weeks ago stood a plain one story
frame structure there is today a stately three
or four story business block.
On Xorth Main at the corner of Central is
the Tittsw orth building, very nearly ready
for occupancy. Further down on the right
is tho fine solid appearing block of Abe
Smith, of which the brick work is
completed to tho third story. On
tho same side of the street
and in the first block south of the Occidental
is the magnificent Miller building with its
massive and attractive front completed.
The interior furnishing is now being pushed
rapidly forward. Acioss the street is tho
Clement building, the iirst story brick work
completed and the side and rear walls of the
second in course of construction. On the
corner,tthe debris of Teter Gctto's old build
ing has been removed and next week will be
commenced his now three-story block the
plans of which were shown the reporter by
Messrs. Rush and Gile tlio architects. Tho
building will be ."0xl00 feet, and havo a
height of (w feet Loni walk to the top of liu
ial, with the fronts on both Main aud
Second streets built of St. Louis pressed
brick and Warreiis'ourgh stone trimmings.
The windows lighting the third story will be
seperatcd from those of the second by archi
tects pressed brick, aud each pair will thus
havo the appearance of one largo win
dow. The whole first story the height of
which will bo fifteen feetwill beonostore room
with a roT,- of iron pillars ruuuing its entire
length, and a large arched main entrance in
hthe center. On the second floor will be eicrht
ofliccs and a store room ."iOxlS feet for the
use of occupant of the fu-st floor. The
third floor will hav e ten offices. The build
ing will be heated by steam and have a com
plete system of sawei age.
Then there is the block which Aid rich &
Brown, aud Hodgson and Inues oc Ross are
having erected. Enough of the fiont is com
pleted to give an idea of its beauty and ele
gance. The joists of the roof are now being
placed in position.
On the corner of First, the north and rear
walks of the Baisley building are about up to
the second stor', while the adjoining build
ing of Mitchell and Stackmau is having the
finishing touches put upon its interior.
Next is the McPherson and Peed building
which joins the other of Aldrich $: Bronn'a
new building. Its light aud pal; bint; bricks
give it an aesthetic apparancj; Then tho
second story is under way a better idea of
tho beauty of tho front can be formed.
Mr. Torrence, the contractor, yesterday
commenced tho foundation of the Kos Harris
building in tho rear of tho State National
kink. Nearly opposite the bank on Douglas
avenue, will rise the Van Ness and Harris
block of which but the foundation
is now completsd.
Bitting Bros., too, are rushing up their
building. The front on Douglas is not begun,
but the re&r and side walls are up to the sec
