City council met last night in the city hall
with Healy, Carey, Richey, Brown, Harris,
Kenyon, Allen and Chivington present, and
his honor, tho mayor, in the chair. There
was a number of spectators present as a re
sult of tho meeting b.eing looked upon with
interest on account of some important ques
tions that it was generally supposed would be
discussed if not finally decided upon.
When the clerk finished reading ths min
utes of lho last special meeting, Councilman
Healy took some exceptions to the way ho
was represented in connection with the Santa
Fe depot matter. After some discussion tho
affair was amicably adjusted.
The report of tho finance committee was
not expected to raise any unusual bresze.but
it was sufficient in some particulars to start
a discussion that served as the main feature
of the evening. The committee comprised
Allen, Healy and Kenyon. Their report on
salaries for city officials is as follows:
Mayor $ GOO
Uouncilmen, eacn l
City clerk 1,000
City attorney 600
Police judge 900
City marshal 1,080
Policemen, each 720
City engineer 800
When the report was read Healy moved
that the report be adopted, and in a minute
received Kenyon as a second.
Richey amended the above motion by al
lowing the mayor and councilmen to draw
tho proposed salary after the middle of next
coming April. His amendment was accepted
by Healy and his second.
Tho mayor then stated that in his opinion
this council could not decide upon
the wages of the next.
Harris "I don't think one dollar a year is
enough to go to Europe on. Ten years ago
councilmen received $50 and I think today
that their services are certainly worth some
Healy "None of us expected any more
when we were elected."
Carey "I agree with Mr. Healy. It does
not seem to me that we should ask any more
than the people expected to give when they
elected us. If we cannot stand it as it is let
us resign our places. If you vote $50 to me
I will not accept a dollar of it. I think the
salaries of our policemen should be raised.'
Mr. Richey then called upon the city at
torney for his opinion about the power of
the council to fix salaries for the next coun
cil and mayor, who stated that t would not
he illegal to take effect at that appointed
His honor, tho mayor, then said that when
he was elected he thought he would have no
salary. Since the city has been mado one of
tho first class tho work has increased and he
would expect one.
Councilman Harris amended the motion
allowing tho mayor and councilmen to draw
the amount recommended by tho committeo
which brought Stone as second man.
The amendment was submitted to a vote
which showed four in the affirmative and
five in the negative. The original motion
was voted upon with a fatal result, showing
threa for and six against.
This seemed to put a quietus upon tho
affair for a few minutes, and the long inter
esting siege was thought by tho members of
tho council sufficient cause to tako a breath
and a little rest, but all this time tho mayor
was busily engaged writing. Finally tha
council was called to a business attitude by
the clerk, who read the following: "I re
spectfully tender my resignation as mayor of
tha city,"' which was signed by B. W.

A SERIOUS ACCIDENT.
Yesterday in the midst of the excitement
attendant upon tho fire on North Main, an
accident happened that may result fatally to
perhaps two women.
Joha Dewing, a farmer, living eight miles
north of the city in Kechi township drove to
tho city in a spring wagon to which was
hitched two mules. On tho front seat with
him was seated his 3-year old child, on the
rear seat Mrs. Dewing and her sister, Mrs.
Freeland, both with babes in thoir arms.
They stopped in front of Morris" grocery and
Mrs. Freeland was giving orders for goods
when the fire alarm was bounded and hose
cart came rushing up tho street. The mules
became frightened and turned the wagon
quickly around, throwing tho hind seat and
its occupants backward upon the ground.
Policeman Clark grabbed the team and
valiantly held on uutil tho driver regained
control of them. Fire mar&hil Waldea was
struck in tho struggle and knocked down;
but if Clark had not held tjbo team they would
certainly have ran into tlw dense crowd and
injured many. Mr. Dowmg all this tima in
terested in the team, did .not know that the
seat had illen out. glancing beck now, how
ever, ho saw it gone and th-j two w omen
lying in tho street. Mro. Freeland
w.is immediately carried to tho Ladies'
Benevolent Home and afterwards Mrs. Dew
ing was asbistcd to the same place. Dr.
Stoner'was called and it was found that
while both were badly injured and cut by
the fall, yet Mrs. Dewing was hurt much tho
worse, id is feared, too, that her external
injuries aro tha least severe.
The two injured women aro daughters of
Mrs. Beach living at the corner of Market
This served tho part of an enthusiastic eye
opener to many aro and the table as well as
to the spectators. Everybody was painfully
silent and each one looking at all tho ret
with an expression of surprise depicted upon
their countenances. No ono for a few min
utes was able to open his mouth, but finally
Mr. Harris stated that he was not in favor of
accepting the resignation. He was of the
opinion that tho council had treated him uu-
fare and unjust, and that in some way tho
matter should be decided differently. He
closed his remarks by moving that the ten
dered resignation be not accepted, which was
seconded by Mr. Stone.
Mr. Allen, president of the council, put
the motion to a vote, which was carried.
Richey then stated that it was the duty of
tho council to make laws and the work of the
mayor to enforce thorn. He did not think
his honor had any more to do than the chair
man of some of the important committees.
Mr. Campbell asked the consent of tho
council to speak, which was granted, and ho
said he did not want to speak of tho salary
of the mayor. He said: "There is a matter
iu which I have a say in and that is concern
ing the salary of the city attorney. When I
first held this position I was given f COO per
year, and I am sure I earned every dollar of
it Before long it was raised to $75 per
month. My duties are increased as the city
grows. I do this work at the ex
clusion o every thing else. If I
was worth $50 per month, I am worth $100
now. My work is not to be present at the
council meetings alone butkthe mo3t of it is
out of these meetings. I don't believe there
is a first-class attorney in the city that will
defend one case I have for less than my
year's salary. My resignation- is ready at
any hour if you don't want my services.''
Carey "Have changed my mind. I don't
think it is right to defer paying tho city of
ficials until next ApriL"
Healy "There was a good deal of kicking
when we raised the city attorney's salary
from $50 to $75 per month. Think that $50 is
enough. A good lawyer told me et was
enough, and that ho could furnish a good at
torney for that.'
Richey Don't think there is a lawyer in
tho city who knows what tho city attorney
has to do. Tho business has greatly in
creased from what it ever was before.'
By this time some of the members of the
council were making anxious inquiry about
what was before the body and what wa3 the
order of business. For some time there had
been statements of grievances accompanied
by comments on the same, and a part of the
of the council was of the opinion that the
ship had lost her bearings, and was out upon
a rough, rude sea, soon to be the victim
of the merciless waves. The alarm
was spreading with a wonderful!
rapidity when Mr. Healy lead out with a
motion to reconsider the whole matter and
he had not taken his seat until Brown availed
himself of the chance to second a motion.
Richey at this juncture put in another one
of Ids amendments which referred the whole
affair back to the committee from -whence it
came. The amendment was submitted and
Mr. Allen said that the ordinance granting
a certam amqunt.raontbly.to the Benevolent
Home f8ukl expire' nextenth at which
time the clerk jrquldiiefrgrant-that institu
tion any more money unless a new ordinance
was made. Healy's motion instructing the
city attorney to draw up an ordinance
granting that institution the regular amount
for an indefinite time, prevailed.
Mr. Kenyon suggested that it would be a
good idea to make an arrangement by which
sand could be procured from the island im
mediately north of the Douglas avenue
bridge, for grading streets, etc. It was sug
gested that the island belonged to a private
party and was not under the control of the
city. The question was disposea of by in
structing the city attorney to investigate the
subject and see if the island was owned by
Garst Bros. were granted the
privilege to build a stairway on
tho east side of their new build
ing, which is immediately east of the Grand
Mr. Healy, as chairman of the gas commits
tee, stated that the gasoline lamps were no
good and when tho electric lights were all
put in operation they could all be removed
to the rural districts. He stated that the
people on South Lawrence avenue were anx
ious to get three more electric lights and say
they will pay for one if the city would add
two. The Schuyler company had promised
to furnish the light at the usual price to the
Mr. Richey stated that lights wero
also needed at the following places:
corner of Third street and Fifth avenue,
corner Third and Wichita streets, and comer
Third and River streets. After a lengthy
discussion the new lights were ordered.
When the railroad committee was called to
report Mr. Healy made a restatement of his
knowledge concerning the Santa Fe depot
Mr. Carey stated that that question was
before the council at its special meeting, and
had been referred to the city attorney, and
was desirous that he should tell tho council
the progress he had made.
Mr. Campbell said ho had written Mr.
Smith a letter last Friday, stating the ques
tion as it was, but had not as yet received a
reply. He read the letter sent Mr. Smith
bich, upon motion, was placed upon file.
The matter w as then dismissed, as it was de
sirous to see what Mr. Smith would have to
say on paper.
The fire committee, represented by Mr.
Harris, submitted a report made by Mr.
Walden, fire marshal, embracing all
tho material now belonging to the
fire department. Tha marshal al"
so submitted another report which
specified a number of improvements that
should be made in the department. He
recommended a one two-horse hose carriage;
one one-horse horse cart; 1,000 feet of hosaj
one fire-bell weighing 1,000 at least and the
present one removed to tho Fifth ward; an
electric service between stations and an
addition of the number of men employed in
the department. This was productive of a
good deal of talk about the trou
blesomo question of a fire department.
Some were inclined to think that the present
service was good enough, and got to tho fires
in fine shape, while others could sec a city
burn down beforo the hoso carts could even
get out of the way.
Mr. Walden was called upon for his viows
in the Territory, after which be entered the
plea of not guilty.
William A. Johnson, s well-built young
man of about twenty, with an unconcerned
air,small,(blue eyes,and rough, unkempt hair, I
was told to stand up. Tno grand jury had
found against him an indictment for killing
Jacob Gilbert He pleaded not guilty.
The Judge inquired if Wade and Crunk
were ready for trial, they thought they
were; but having no attorney his honer ask
ed if thoy wanted one. Crank said it seem
ed to be fashionable, he guessed he would.
Mr. McMeekin was assigned to him.
The case of tho United States vs. "Walton
was called. Judge Campbell asked that on
account of the death of the defendant's
brother, the case be continued until he could
hear from him; continuance granted.
The state's attorney then entered a nolle
prosequi in the 'cattle cases, as all the st ick
had been lost and he could not successfully
make out his case under the present circum
The afternoon session was called at 2:15
and John Trussler immediately arraigned.
Trussler was a confederate of Crunk and
Wade, and had distinguished himself by en"
deavoring to escape on his way to jail. He
pleaded not guilty. Tho prisoner who was
chained to him then aroso and disclosed a
bruised and bloody face, the result of a re
cent fight in the jaiL To the charge of steal
ing two horses he pleaded not guilty:
Eck Ross to tho charge of assault with
deadly weapons; and W. H. Manning to the
charge of introducing liquor into the terri
tory did likewise.
Albert Bress charged with stealing cattle
acknowledged his guilt. Robt King, a boy
who gave his age as but thirteen, stepped out
from among the other prisoners to where he
could be seen and pleaded not guilty to
larceny of jewelry.
Albert Bress having pleaded guilty, was
asked if he had any reason why sentence
should not be passed upon him. He gave
none and so was sentenced to tho Kansas
penitentiary for ono year and fined $25.
Mr. Hatton was assigned as attorney for
Robert King and while he was investigating
the caso of the young criminal, the bunch of
prisoners were marched back to the jail.
A consultation between Judge Foster and
Mr. Hatton was then held, audit was thought
best on account of his youth to commit him
to the Loavenworth county jail for six and a
half months. None of tho other prisoners
being ready for trial, no further business
was transacted, and the court adjourned
until 9 o'clock this morning.

list of material with a view to economy.
This will cost little more than
tho present arrangement and will be
a great deal better. Tho main
object is to get to a fire quick. At times our

The motion mado to adopt tho report was
carried, and his honor, Mr. "Walden and the
fire committee appointed a committee with
power to act in getting tho new apparatus
suggested by the fire marshal.

IX THE U. H. COUKT.
At tho assembling of courb yesterday
morning atl0::'0, the room was crowded with
spectators and witnesses. Shortly after
Judge Foster had taken his sent the grand
jury camo in and mado a partial report of
tho indictments found; they wero then ex
cused. Tho first case called was tha United State5
vs. Silas Davis and James Blankinship, two
boys about 1G years of age, charged with
burglarizing a store in tho territory. Davis
pleaded guilty aud was afterwards sentenced
to the Kansas penirentiarj- for one year and
fined $10; Blankeuship plead not guilt, and
had Mr. McMeekin assigned him as his attor
"When this case had been disposed of three
colored prisoners in irods were marched in
by the deputies. The first of these called w as
Barney Cooper, a short, heavy het, ugly vis-
aged negro, dressed in tho'bluo uniform of a
private soldier. The charge against him
was then read by Clerk "Wilson; they were in
two counts. First, assaulting, ravishing
and murdering' a Cheyenne woman named
Motonya, and second, rape, to both of which
ho plead not guilty.
The other two were Jacob and Joseph Tab
ler, brothers, about 18 and 20 years
of age, arraigned on a joint and
on soveral indictments, charging
them with shooting and killing Frank Cass
and Jacob Goodecuntz. Both entered the

Crunk, that of horse stealing.
George Morris, a thin, pale, nervou? mi
with chin whiskers and hair, sprinlded slight

clerk hurriedly read the indictment against
him, charging him with having shot and
killed with a pistol one J. W. Lake, living
Yesterday morning the street cars bore
evidences of a great baseball game that was
to take place in the afternoon at tho "West
"Wichita fair grounds. The comic pictures
in the show window of Mr. J. P. Allen's drag
store exhibiting tho situation at different
stages of the gamo were always drawing out
broad smiles and comic remarks from a de
lighted crowd. The very air seemed to indi
cate that "something powerful funny' was
going to happen. The phenomena wero not
deceiving in the least. The opinion
of some pessimists who declared that tho fats
and leans would never step into the field with
the intention of wiping the ground up with
each other proved false, and about 1 o'clock
carriages and vehicles and even John Fisher's
cart drawn by his pony were seen going in
tho direction of tho battle field. They passed
hundreds of pedestrians going tho same direc
tion just as hard but not so fast, and just as
auxjous to see the fun and yell with a ven

Rev. J. D. Hewitt served as umpire.
An immense crowd was present. Tho car
riages and people w ould encroach upon the
territory belonging to ihe diamond, and the
patience of the players and tho dutiful um
pire were sometimes taxed to its utmost
while waiting and beseechiug tho eager to
stand back aud get out of tho way." At
times operations wero suspended and tho
cry to give tho boys a chance was tho ab
Luck tool: off its hat to tho leans in the
toss and they knocked tho first paint off the
bat. They went to bat with a kick that tho
fats were acting unfair by running in pio
fessionals, and tho jumbos were Icicking,
slow but hard all the same, about playing
the Chicago team rather than the "Wichita !
Tho battery for tha fats was Myers catcher
and Frank Dale pitcher. Sickner led out
with a sky scraper and won first baso with
ease, much to the discomfiture of Davo Dale
whose face got red over the question, having
jumped at least two inches high after the
ball when it passed at least ten feet above
him and cut the grass for somo rods iu the
wrong direction for Dave after its return to
the ground. This sort of thing was kept up
until the leans made three before they were
compelled to laj- down the bat.
The fats grabbed the bat with the requisite
amount of confidence. Frank Dale opened
up with a good strike and won first base and
in due time was shaking hands with his
breatheren at the homo plate. This was
good enough ai far a3 it went but it went no
farther p.t that inning, llyers, Allan and
Cary threw the fats on their bac3( the first
time and surrendered the bat to the leans.
The leans came in with a winning look and
Dodson seizing tho bat soon sent out a iilly
scraper that missed Allen's shins at the ex
pense of some time in slow pursuit.
Stanly followed successfully until Aldrich
rolled him out on socond base. The .v.cond
time thtf fats were by too force of circum
stances called to tho bat. They showed signs
of fatigue, and wore a look that was sugges
tive that all wa5 not well them. Harris
reaching Jiis third strike started for his base.
He succeeded in getting between the bae ,
and the ball and then of course was safe.
An attempt was made to send tha kill
through him in order to reach first baseman,
