Followed b- Col. IT. W. Lewis in
Masterly Effort, and the Plac

Long before tho appointed time yesterday
afternoon for the laying of tho corner-stone
of the Lewis Academy, a large crowd had
gathered. Tho day was a beautiful ono and
suitable in every respect for the oscasion.
Ati5:l.5 o'clock tho Rev. J. D. Hewitt accend
cd the platform accompanied by our dis
tinguished visitor Hon. John G. Carlisle.
A fow minutes latter theK. P. band favored
the assembry with one of its choice selections
after which tho Hon. Rodolph Hatfield who
is president of the board of trastees of th
institution stated that the exercises of
the afternoon would bo continued by the
reading of tho scriptures by Rev. W. F.
Harper of tho First Baptist church. Tho
reverend gentlemen read the ono hundred
and thirty-second Psalm after which Rev.
Fleming of Arkansas City led in prayer.
President IlatfieM introduced Rev. J. F.
Heady D. D., president of tha Emporia col
lege, who spoke as follows:
vr. Vresldeiit, Ladlej aud Gentlemen:
Wo havo assembled toaay to witness tho
laying of a corner-stone a corner-stone of a
noblo institution of learning. It is one oi
man's distinguishing prerogatives that he
can create institutions. V ithout institutions
man is, at best, lilce a walled up fountain; like
a soul unembodied; like a body bereft ot
hands. Institutions tire essential tor the icr-
fect development of the individual man. Wo
do not assert that in tuo deepest sense tuey
confer anything upon man, but wo maintain
that they allord mm tuo surest means ot us
ing that i Inch belongs to him by the right
of creation. Men are not made lor institu
tions. On the contrary institutions aro made
for men they aro not his master but his ser
vant. The sourco of all power here below is
in man himself ; ho is greater than even law;
his sacreduass surpasses the majesty even of
government, iheso are fundamental max
ims in Republican liberty iney are aiso tae
principles forever at war with imperial and
As to tho nature ot institutions, it may be
said iu brief, that an institution is a princi
ple or set of principles organized into a ma
terial form. They are thus artificial bodies
inspired by certain definite principles, tho
object of which is to prolong their life
through tho successive generations of men.
In our own day tho namo of ''institution"
ban como to bo applied chieily to organiza
tions of intellectual and moral pow or. In
stitutions may further bo divided iufco two
classes tho aim of tho one being to develop
man's powers the aim of tho other to fur
nish that trained and disciplined power an
opportunity for fitting exrciso. The insti
tutions that develop man'.; wwer we coll ed
ucational thd others Tro call industrial, com
mercial, bocial, and civil.
There is over noticablj tiis marked con
trast bjtwoefii the two kinds of inoiiiutious:
the ono appears to spring forth without mii'di
assistance, tuo other will always need tho
fostering caro ana encouragement of large
hearted men and women. Civil, industrial,
commercial institutions often come forth full
helmed ami vigorous-, able to stand alone.
Collegos, academies, churches, museums,
must bo nourished patiently, with maternal
aire aud sympatlry, perhaps through a long
succession of years. Let no man give cur
rency to tho charge that tho college and the
academy arc simply mendicants transmitted
to us from a pat age, bnt unworthy tha
countenanco and tho benefactions of liberal
men in this nd wincing .ago of civilization.
They are not nidioatiUs tin-y aro productive
of energies. AVo aro hero to ailirm that thou
beneficent institutions stimulate society
through every nerve; that they arouse with
in men the latent powers of their manhood ;
that they inspire tho youth within
their vuils so as to become in
turn tho inspirers of thoir fellow-men.
Show us an institution whoro men are
trained and disciplined properly, and we will
show you a porreunial louutain from which
tho best .society of ovry age draw , its life.
But, pays the caviller, "Your schools of
higher education aro only for tho pleasure
and satisfaction of rich men; they confer lit
tle benefit on tho toiling laborer and me
chanic. Of what o.9iblo benefit cau it be to
us working men to have learned profo-ors
measuring and weignmg mo sun, watcumg
the conjunctions and transits of planats, and
watching tho exact movement of eclipse"
Be patient, fellow laborer, and let wisdom
moaerato your reflectious while I remind you
that tho common comforts of life
whii'h to-day you share with millions of your
fellow men, are tho direct gifts couforred by
education, anil were two centuries ago the
po&cssions of but tho favored fow. The phil
osophic maxims that our 10'year-old boys
know to-day, as thoy know their
primer, were the profound prob
lems of philosophy a century ago, and
known only to a select group of thinkers.
There is uot a working ninu who eats more
food and better foo 1 today; there is not a
mechanic enjoying luxuries that only Icings
eujoved centuries Iwlc that doas not owe, in
tho largest degree, tho thiugs to tha invas
tigsitious of scholars ami philosophers. Tho
intlueuocs at the top of society, you may rest
a.s.sureJ will affect society at tho very bot
tom. Pel hap; not oiw hundred men
in tho liietimo of tho illustrious
Lord Bacon felt decidedly the influence of his
mighty thoughts; but to lay these maxims
and principles are coursing through all the
veins of science like invigorating blood, pal
pitating and throbbing with knowledge.
Groat principles aud great trutlis that tor
ages spread out like nebulous clouds over
men, are at length gathered and fall in rain
tirops; then come the harvest.;, and with the
harvests come abundant food for all.
Wo readily admit that the high
er schools will not make all
tho citizens of a state mathematicians, or
lawyers, or scientists; but wo maintam stead
fastly that their designed and mevitablo toa
deuey is to make butter workmen, more
skilltul mechanics, more sagacious inventors;
iu a word more of the vast multitude who
can read tuid think and speculate wisely,
thus enabling them at length to attain an
altogether more symmetrical lnauhood. If,
therelore, it be granted that tho academy
and the college affords to but a few com
p.iritively the great boon of clu.sical aud
scientific "learning it is uot a bit lesss true that
they uuike lumiuous the thoughts of the
multitude. In former days stationary
engines were placed upon the mountain tops
of the Alleghenios to draw trams up tha
long tuid narrow incline. Our serumariqs
nuiy be on tui elevation but their assured
work is to draw tho vast train of society up
to their own high level.,
How impressive is this scene in which wo
participate today. A quarter coutury
asro this was the outtxvstof civilization tho
fioatier of the great wiL The warwhoop
of the savage has scarcely died uway bolor
this daring Auglo-Sxrou race le:rius to build
the vdl:- of the academy and the coll'e. It
is a s irthng spectacle startling in moral
granasur. l aouot u ever, since uie worm
began, such unique sceues were witneod as
those now taking place along this western
border. In other ages nations havo migrated
from land to land, carrying with them their
flocks and herds, their weapons of war and
warlike spirit. But never did thoy carry
with thorn written constitutions, formulated
systems of law, academies and colleges. Bc-
hold tho spectacle of today; the swarming
Vri-iocs o Anglo-Americans are pouring
into and over this great "American Desert;
nrl nlonrr with flocks and herds they bring
schools and churches, museums, and acade
mies. This fctalwart raco leaves in th3
rear not one of the monuments ot tue npo-c
civilization; on its broad shoulders it carries
both tho burdens and tho trophies of Ameri
can progress and culture. What we arc do-

viz: to plant every where over these vast

Th-j sericc3 of this day furnish a fittiug
opporlanitv of calling attention to tuo re
lation existing between wealth aud educa
tion. This is tho ago of silver and gold a
"oldeu age indeed is is the standard dollar
to the contrary notwithstanding. The iuilu
enceof gold-dominates every avenue and
circle of society. Gold is intensely secular,
indeed, but it is condoling alter all to
-ofwt thn ih mv have, and often does
ii.ra -rnnd moral influence. Let
it be freely ainntted: wealth can not give to
men tho pen of a Shakspcarc, tho tongue of a
Cicero, the massive thought of a Plato. Very
true; but it can make a man the patron and
f rieud of genius, of eloquence, of learning.
Money may not bo able to preach but it can
train and qualify a thousand gifted tougu
like Luther's and Whitfield's, and D. L.
Moody's, that sliall overturn the world with
thfiir !lonuenco. Riches can build colossal
elevators, continental railroads, stately man
sionswhy can it not as well build tho art
gallery, the academy, the college? It is time
that men snouiu arise auu give u nui, ucuiai
to the charge that money is, always and
everywhere, sordid, penurious, groveling,
elfish. No ono can trive this denial so effect
ively as he who possesses wealth and ho cau
do it not by word, but by act as Wm. E.
Dodge, aud John U. lireen, ana joiid u
Blair, and Pardee, and a goodly number o!
others have done. There never his beon it

Let none of these bo overlooked. At the
samo time let tho moneyed men remember
that it is his high prerogrative to uvj in
means in such a way that tho passing age
shall ennoble hisgitts ever more a:ul more.
ni.w is no man so utterly dead as tna man
who lea-es behind him nothing but his name.
There is no man who lives so intensely as hi
who join-, his name iuuissolubly with some
noble work that the world is unwilling to
Int. dip. The name of John Harvard is cut
sharper and clearer today than it was two
centuries ago. For more than two hundred
years men have walked tho halls of Harvard
university, and during all theao hours
the name of tho founder has
bpen on somo one's tongue,
So it is with tho name and tho founder of
Yale. And so, I mako bold to say it will be
in tho case ot tuo institution wuoso corner
stone wo lay today. Long as these waters,
rolliug from mountains, to the sea, wash the
banks of your beautiful city, so long will be
held in grateful remembrance the generous
patron after whom Lewis Academy is named.
And linked forever with his shall bo the
namo of tho earnest pastor in whoso heart
their bcueficient project was conceived, and
by whoso faith aud persistent toils tho enter
prise has been brought to thopoiut of assured
success. With tho namo of If. IV. Lewis wo
invariably associate that of Rev. John D.
Hewitt. And thus it comes to paas that man
may survive the grave. Like Abel, "though
dead they may yet speak." He who in Bed
ford iail wroto about tho "prograa of the
pilgrim," he never lived as h livoa now; he
is spoaking today in 150 tongues. Only a
fow out of all the multitude who sings his
hvmns know tho author of "All Hail tho
power of Jesus Namo?" But, surely, Steu-n-'L
did not caa.se work at th grave's mouth,
otz. Grand Iwyond question is tho privilege
wi linking: your namo with somo immortal
book, somo immortal poor but is it any loss
inspiring to iuweavo your namo and persou
alitv with a noble institution of learning
vho.o solo mission is to bless and
elcvato society. Tho hand that lays
this corner-siono today may wonc
a tho'isand years hence, tho benclicent
'honzhts th.ii are brooding hero now must
bear ever increasing fruit in tho far off ages.
ily own hopo is that this act of on; gener
ous citizen ot v lcnita suau stimulate a nun
tired others to similar acts in the samo direc
tion. The day is near at hand, I do nrmly
believe, when'a goodly number of men will
seek wealth just as men now seek learning,
not solely that ifc may ininislor to their own
soliL3h pleasure, but that it may f urniah them
the effective appliances for rightly shaping

with great moral enterprises, such as the
Chrijtinn school aud tho Christian univer

We are here, than, to-day to manifest our
deep interest in this magnill'-ant Chri3tian
endeavor that seeks to plant throughout our
adopted state the college and tho academy.
Surely we xnufc be inspired by tho example
of tho others who havo gone bsfore us. We
rememlr how in poverty Je'Tor
soa college was founded, and Han
over, and Waliash, and oven Prince
ton aud Yale aud Harvard. Wo know
the story of their struggles, and their final
viclorv. And as it has beoa with them so it
will bo with us hero in this New West. This
academy, if it prova itself worthy, will not
always remain a simple preparatory school,
as it is today. Py aa inherent law of it
life it will expand and develop, reaching on
ward through tho various stage of healthy
evolution, until at length it shall attaiu the
proud status of a well equipped university.
Wo llaut the acom now wo await m c!m
confidence tha full development of the lordly
oak. Tho walLs tliat hau rest upon this corner-stone
will shelter our children and our
children's children for twenty generations.
Tho halls thai forever bo consecrated to
learning, morality aad religion. This cher

When Mr. Carlisle had finished his speech the
president said he deemed it unnecessary and
almost verying upon formality to mtroauco to
the assembly Col. H. W. Lewis. Tii3 appear
ance of tho speaker was greeted with a cheer
and whsnithad subsided he spoko as follows:
lis. Iri,Id.:nt. Ladles, and Usntlomea:
Timrn was n. rime. when, in this place, all
was chaos aud darkness. Around and be
neath, confused and shapeless, lay unorgan
ised masses or matter, untenanted ny uj
thing of life, and over all was spread forever
the black mantle of midnight, unpenetrated
by a single star. Ages upon ages rolled away
and wrought no change. At last, aud sud
denly, there came a voice that thundered
through the universe, and reverberated along
the wild and murky desolation from chaos to
chaos, "let there be light; and there was
light." It glittered from tho rocky heights;
it flashed upon the waters; it sparkled in the
rolling mist; and all was bathed in mellow,
glad-ome, glorious light! "And God saw the
light, that it was good." The first work of
tha first day of creaton was worthy of cre
Afterwards was formed the firmament, the
vegetable world, the sun, moon and stars,
fishes and fowls, tho animal kingdom, and,
Aud man was placed upon the earth, and
the earth's motion so established that half
his life should be iu sunshine, half iu dark
ness; half in daylight, half in night. Pre
destined to such an existence, man had strug
gled for ages through light and shadow,
airougn smiles ana tears, with rejoicing and
with weeping, with gladness and sorrow four
thousand years, until God sent the "Sun of
riVhteousness" to lkrht the world henceforth.
The Light of tho world was hung in mid
heaven so that every earth wanderer might
look aud live iorever.
Notwithstanding tho ease with which,
throuch God's mercy and love, every soul by
a simple look of faith may partake of eternal
life and light, millions there aro who iersist
iu walking in shadows aud darkness. They
look not up to see the heavensborn light. Their
eyes aro fixed upon the ground, and tney saui
irropo through the wilderness, until the cease
less round of years brings them at last to rest
in the dark and narrow house of clay. Like
shins that sail on stormy sea, with stone-
blind pilots at the helm, they dash to pieces
on tho rocks beneath the flashings of tho bea
O ! lor a power that would enter tho souls
of the nerishinz masses of humanity; that
would 'cast from their eyes the blinding
scale;, and turn them toward the heavenly,
f odtiy we lay the corner stone of an insti

Eclc Eoss Sentenced to the Peni
tentiary for Three Tears.
Abel Deals now on Trial for Intro
ducing Liquor Into the Indian
After tho conrt had. assembled yesterday
morning the case of Eck Ross was called.
Rcss is another member of tho Wade gang
and a brother of Kit Ross who was hung at
Fort Smith, tho Cth of last month. Tho
charge against him was assault with deadly
weapons. The first witness introduced was
Alexander Rankin, f ha man upon whom the
assault was made. He said ho was standing
in.thedoorof his store iu Shawneetown;
when looking up the road he saw a two-horso
wagon with a man and a whiskey barrel in
it coming towards him, behind was Ross rid
ing a horse. As the latter come in front of
tho store, ho said that ho was going to ride
into it and told Mr. Rankin to get away or
he would shoot him. Rankin reached back
for aa ax-haudle and Ross told him he
kill him if he did not put it down. Rankin
closed tho door and Ross fired three shots,
one passed through tho window, tha others
through the door. In an hour he returned
again with Wade and made about the same
threats. About dusk of tho soma day he re
turned a second time with another party,
and Mr. Rankin boing warned ran to the
neighboring store of Mr. Clay and concealed
himself. After swearing that they came to
kill himand that he should never again open
his store, they left. Tho next day, whon
Ross camo back to carry out his threats,
Rankin met him with a Winchester, and the
desperado meekly slinked away.
The evidence was substantiated by
that of Clay, the merchant in whose
store Mr. Rankin sought safety;
Elliott a cattleman; and Clark
Smith, Eskridgo, Lazell, all farmers, who
saw tho assault, or parts of it. Even Ross'
own witnesses, Jim Wade aud Robert Can
alis, did not give any different version of the
affair, but said that R033 was so intoxicated
as to be irresponsible for his acts.
After tho evidence was all in tho court ad
journed. Afternoon cession was called at 2:15 and
tti9 argument in tho case of Eck Ross imme
diately opened by United States Attorney
Perry. He was followed by 3Ir. Carson for
the defense, and then tho district attorney
closed, Tho charge to the jury was given
by the judge, he said that there would be do
difficulty tn seeing that tho assault was made
with deadly weapons, and as for tho defense
of intoxication, the jury must form their
opinion from the evidence given. The jury
The grand jury took their seats and mado
another partial report, returning twenty
nine indictments. It i3 thought that thoir
final report will be in tomorrow.
The case of tho United States V3. Deate was
next called. At 4.-45 af tar a consultation of
about ono hour tho jury brought in a verdict
against Bck Ross, finding him "guilty aa
charged in tho indictment." Tho judga then
sontonced him to hard labor in tho Aas
penits-tiary for thrso yoars.
Tho cam against Deafc; was thea proceeded
with; Mr. Hagon, assistant siato a'rtorney,
presenting tho otato's sida of tho ca-v, that

and sold cider strongly mixed with whiaky.

ing that Doafcj was but tho kcopsr of a pea
nut stand and among other thing; sold some
Mr. Blair, the first witness called, said that
ho never saw Dcats introduce any liquor into
the territory. One evening at his houso Jim
"Wade, Pete Lazelle and himself while play
ing cards made Deats bring thsm over four
or five gallons of cider, which thoy all drink
ing becanio intoxicated.
Oa cross-examination ho said ha

Vordo s, the aaaa who had filed tho
obr$o, wm aoxt sailed aad aaid that h

and that it did not ttste like cider, but lik
it might havo alcohol iu it.
Ralph Smith, tha next witnwn had drank

Ja. McDowoll had sejn man intoxicated
