I noticed in the Daily Eagle of Sept. 7th,
a report of tho Arkansas Valley Building

that on its first six mouth's business it ex
pects to declare a dividend of 2.50 per share.
This is certainly a very favorable report,
but not "unprecedented" as tho following re

stood ." to 2 in favor of the "Wichitas. This
score was inci eased to 5 to 5 and one inning
for Wichita. Jetty went to the bat and
made a base hit. Kittle followed, and made
a three base hit. Jetty making homo from
third, on this hit was interrupted by the
third base man, ho getting in front of Jetty,
directly in his way, threw up his hands, hal
lowed, and hindered his running, thereby
losing the run and tho game. It was a bit of
"gouge game," which cost the Wichitas the
honor of winning. Justice and the rules of
the game gave the gamo to "Wichita, by 0

THE SANTA FE'S NEW DEPOT.
Tho Santa Fo now announces through
couucilmen Healy and Allen that they will
erect a fine and permanent depot substan
tially upon tho grounds now occupied, or
rather on the same sldo of Douglas avenue
but a few feet farther to tho west and throw
all tho tracks on tho east side of tho depot if
tho city council will condemn a strip of a
few feet at present occupied by two trades to
which it seems that road holds no absolute
title. Thsre is not roo.n to erojfc such a
passenger depot as they propose- without
occupying the strip in question. Manager
Smith announces to Messrs Allen and Healy
that iu cose the right is granted that work
will bo immediately commenced upon a very
fino depot and if tho winter should prove
favorble that the work will bo prosecuted
with energy so that early next year the new
edifice would bo ready for occupancy. We
uudcrstand that the matter is to be submits
ed this Thursday evening, to tho council for
ratification or rejection. In our judgment
tho request is a reasonable one and in the
interest of the city as a whole and, therefore,
should be grauted.
Our poor old Jack is dead;
No more will ho eat cake
He never liked to eat drj bread,

Yes, Eagle Jack is done for. The poor

that frightened a lot of galoots and someone
rushed frantically off after a policer. The

his pop laid poor Jack low. Ah, well! it is
but tho oft repeated freak (if it may bo dig
nified w ith such a title) of human nature.
Tho poor old dog had served out his day of
usefulness, was old and often in tho way, aud
a case of colic from a too liberal bait of sur

served as a convenient excuse to dispatch

viated. Jack was a kindly affectionate cur; fond
of his friends lunch, and withal careful of
his associations. He learned a valuablo les

departure between suns with an alleged lot
of pliHnnacoutical and electrical boodle, Jack

Much might bs said of Jack's amiability,
but it is enough, perhaps, to say that his
chief ambition was to "pan-handle hand

last, no doubt, led to his untimely ending.

that the cop got to Jack as ho lay prone upon

The word was passed around last evening
that there would be a call meeting of the city
council at 7:30 o'clock. It was said there
was some railroad matters to attend to which
caused considerable interest to bo .placed in
the meeting. It was an hour after, the ap
pointed time that the council .con&ned, with
me presiaeng prttem; am, Alien, iqtgm cnair,
and Healy,' GajRrown,!RicheygiKenyon
and Chi vingtoE' present. .HisTionop, tho may
or, soonTappeared. "
Councilman Healy stated that he accom
panied" by Councilman Allen, had on Wed
nesday last made a trip to Topeka for the
purpose of seeing Mr. Smith, vice-president
and general manager of the Santa Fe road,
concerning the erection of a respectable de
pot by that road in this city. They had a
talk with the official, and tha history of the
actions of that road toward this city was re
viewed. He stated that Mr. Smith was not
aware until informed by him that the Santa
b'e addition had been platted without any re
gard to the streets and alleys
of Wichita, which greatly damaged
adjoining property. Other things were
mentioned in which the company had aimed
to hurt the city and impede its growth, taat
the official disclaimed knowing anything
about. In fact he seemed to be utterly igno
rant of the state of affairs existing between
the city and the company. Mr. Smith said
that the company desired a deed given them
by the city for a strip of land on Fifth avenue
between Douglas avenue and First street
which was about fifty feet wide and six hun
dred long. They now occupied that land
with their tracks but had not a title that
would allow them in safety to build a depot.
They desired to erect a passenger depot im
mediate north of Douglas avenue and put
their freight department a short distance
south of the avenue, which would
bo accompanied by a numler of necessary
switches. Tho grouud now occupied was
more than what they wished a deed for from
the city. Ho said that if the land asked was
granted they would commence immediately
tho erection of fine passenger and freight
depots. The former wonld bo of St. Louis
pressed brick with stone trimmings, while tho
latter in all probability would be made of
Mr. Healy said that Mr. Smith did not
give anj' idea as to the plan of tho depot or
commit himself concerning its cost.
Councilman Carey then asked Mr. Healy
who the ground belonged to. Tho latter an
swered that it belonged to the city. "All the
parties along tho line," ha continued, "have
given them there consent that tho cit3 should
give them that ground.
Mr. Carey then gained tho floor and said
that he had met Mr. N. A. Englisb some
time before the meeting, and had invited
him to tho council meeting for tho purpose
of gaining somo information from him con
erniug tho matter, thinking ho would be
good authority on the subject, as he had had
some dealings with that company in that
part of tho city.
Mr. English was present and being called
upon said, "The Santa Fe compaay has never
fulfilled a contract niado either to the city of
Wichita or to a citizen of Wichita. I gave
them lots near their track for $125 a piece,
which for tho entire amount of land was giv
ing them $1,800 at tho then orice of lots with
tho condition that they should build their
depot ono hundred feet south of Douglas
avenue. They failed to do that as well as
some othtr things specified in the contract.
They havo no right to a deed to that street
nor have you any right to give it to
Mr. Healy then said, "Tho company now
asks for what everybody thinks they now
have. Mr. Smith, however, sees that they
havo not a tittle that would make them safe
in building a depot ou it so he asks for it."
English interrupting Mr. Healy said that
Robinson, Smith's predecessor had told him
that Smith was the cause of the depot not
already having been built. That freight
depot had been placed there and thoso
switches constructed according to his plans."
Judge Campbell was then asked
for his opinion on tho sub
ject and stated that ho believed ho saw
what tho Santa Fo company was after. They
see that probably the cit3 council will some
time want a uuion depot, and having granted
tho grouuds on which to erect a depot, the
city might not be able to make them cornply
with tho union depot scheme. He thought
tho matter looked very suspicious and tho
former dealings of the city with that compa
ny warranted caution in futuro contracts.
Mr. Carey stated the ho desired to call spe
cia' attention of the members of the council
to ordinance 1G4. "On reading that," ho
said, "3-ou will see that the road has not
treated the city as it agreed to or should
have done. It gives them the right
to construct their track from Third stroet
Sine i I have been on the railroad committee
I have looked over the matter. They have
kept promising, promising and promising,
but do not'aing. Mr. English said well when
he state 1 that they do not make their prom
iso . gco J. Thsy want you to make the title
good, but will not Carry out this contract
any better than they have otdinance ltii. It
is a trick on their part in wanting more ter
ritory. When a man breaks a promise with
mo once I watch him ever after. This thing
should notba acted upon until the next
meeting, when we will have more time to
think about it Think over it calmty and
quietly aud you will be better prepared to
act wisel3 on it,"
Make an examination for yourself and
see if that crossing at Third street is a good
one. When I told them about it they did
not fix it"
"Now, I havo no objection to Messrs. Healy
and Allen goiBg to Topeka. They can go up
there or oa to Now York if the3 want to;
but I don't remember that the city council
sent them up there to confer with the officials
of the Santa Fe railroad about the depot
they have repeatedly promised to build but
Mr. Healy "Mr. Carey says good enough
as far as he goos. Will explain how Allen
and I come to go to Topeka. Last week
the comncfl know what we had learned about
the question and then discuss it just as we
are here tonight. It is possible tb.9 company
is not in good faith. If it is not, Smith is
certainly a double faced man. lam willing
to listen to some more information. Think
it would be proper for some of us to corres
pond and gain some more knowledge about
Healy "Mr. A. W. Oliver said he would
stand good for anything Smith would say."
English Some one said something about
it being important that the matter be rushed
through. It might be well to remember that
Robinson said that he would commence work
on the depots in three months in the contract
he made with me, but they are not yet com
menced. The only man who was, general
manager of that road who favored Wichita
was bounced in three, months from the time
he assumed the duties of the, office.
Carey I move that the question be laid
on the table until next Monday night
Allen In tho meantime would it not bo
well to have some one write to Mr. Smith?
Richcy I would suggest that if that strip
of land is given to the company that it be
given with the written provision that work
shall commence on the depot in a specified
time and that tho kind of a depot and cost of
same be specified.
Mr. Carey then withdrew his motion and
moved that Judge Campbell be instructed to
correspond with tho railroad company con
cerning the question and report at the next
regular meeting of the council. His motion
promptry received a second, and was carried
without a dissenting voice.

ACCUSED OF ASSAULT.
H. L. Jackson, a colored man, living on
Lewis street, between Topeka and Emporia,
brought a man to tho police Wednesday
night and handing over a revolver, told of an
assault of which he and his wife were tho vic
tims. He sa3's that ho had just returned
from tho ball grounds, whero he had left a
lemonade stand, and, after depositing the re
ceipt of the daj-'s sale, was going away from
his home when he heard his wife scream.
Running back he fouud a white man beating
her over tho head with a revolver and de
manding money which he said was in the
house. When Jackson arrived on tho scene
the man turned the revolver upon him sa3
ing. ''If 3Tou move a muscle, I will kill 3'ou."
Bef oro ho had scarcely spoken the w ords,
Jackson had struck him to the ground, and
continued the knocking down process until ho
had scored five in his favor, when
two other men carao up to the
rescue of tho would-be robber. The colored
man baflled tho rescuing party by making of
the first man whom I13 now held as a prisoner
a sort of breast work. Starting towards
Douglas avenue the two men followed him
for several blocks but finally gave up tho pur
suit and Jackson was allowed to hand over
to tho police his prisoner and weapons.
In the afternoon Mrs. Jackson appeareh be
fore his honor; she had her left optic in baud
age, and telling a tale substantially the same
as her husband's, demanded tho arrest of her
assailant. But as she did not know his name,
Judge Glenn sent her out for Tom McNamara
who had made tho arrest. Upon returning
with the officer a warrant was soon out
against the man, who proved to be Harry
Davis; the onl3 charge made being carrying
concealed weapons. She did not, however,
have this warrant served, as she hoped, after
consulting with the prosecutor, to be able to
bring against him an indictment for a greater
offense. Should she not succeed in this, the
papers will be served today, and DavLs then
given an opportuuitj' to state his version of
THE GREAT GAME.
The Ladies' Aid society social last evening

Refreshment stands were erected upon the
lawn, and a largo dancing platform in front
of the house. The evening was enjoyed by
all who were present.
The game last night between Glaskin and

In tho United States but littlo business was
done other than tho transactions of the se
cret session of the jur3.
As the reporter stood near tho clerk' de-k
in the court room 3"esterda3 afternoon, Jack
Stillwell, one of tho best known of tho depu
ties, came along and in conversation spoke
of his charges, the Che3'ennes. He thought
them a w ell behaved class of people, who
were rapidly disappearing before the rapid
advances of civilization. Ho introduced a
fine specimen of manhood named Kohate, a
lieutenant of Capt. Lee Hall's police, aud
said ho was one of the shrewdest and most
cunning red men he ever knew. Seldom was
a task given him to perform that he failed to
accomplish. Kohate came to interpret for the
Kiowas, whose languago few white men
know, and as he translated it into Comanche
for Mr. Stillwell to retranslate into English,
tho conversion with the reporter had somo
drawbacks. Mr. S. further states that tho
Che3ennes are temperate, fearing whiske",
and that he did not expect so much trouble
in keeping them sober as Just then Mr.
Clark, of the Osage Agency came up and he
"he had to see a man."
Mr. Clark called attention to a group of
Indians sitting near the railing and said the
most striking one was the noted chief, Whirl
wind, who had made several trips to Wash
ington and was a very intelligent man.
Near him sat Wolf Chief, and on tho floor at
tho latter's feet was Gentlo Horse. Behind
him w as his wife and niece, the daughter of
the unfortunate woman whom Barium Cooper
the colored criminal, had so cruelly murdered.
Across the aisle were four Kiowa women who
were visiting their Che3enno sisters when
the horriblo deed was committed. TLcc
wero all called as witnesses in tho above case.
Mr. Clark has passed a quarter of a cen
tury in the Territory,, and has studied the
Red man and hLs habits. His present jwst is
near the Oklahoma country. He says that
it requires great vigelence to keep settlers off
this beautiful land, and that now sinco the
railroad is ling constructed tha task grows
daily more difficult.
