The scenes are rapidly shifting prepam

now on the boards of continncntal Europe,
and the signal for the raising-of the curtain
is momentarily looked for. The first act
is scarcely ended, i. e. the constrained abdi
cation of Prince Alexander of the the Bul
garian throne. The second act will be the
occupation of the coveted territory by
Jtussia, with a simultaneous movement on
the part some one of theiial lesser pow

Russia following the lusK)-TurkMi war

Mr. Tiutfchcr, of Kansas, said the dele

Republicans of Kansas, lie knew no
others. Kansas had pi hibition in its con
stitution and laws, ami the laws were
admirably executed. In the capital city
there had" not been a saloon open in two
years. The delegation did not want to loc
the Republicaif party, because it had a mis
sion to perform, a party so endeared by all
fond and historic recollections. Kansas
was substantially unanimous, .and believed
it could express in the conference so, and
strengthen the party all over.

beaver city-neutral lands.
To the Editor of the Eagle.
On a pleasant eve last January I
turned my face westward, reluctantly leav
ing your busy streets, bound for this place,
and knowing as I do that there are many
readers of the Eagle that would be inter
ested in knowing how we have fared in this
country, I respectfully ask space in your
columns to state a few facts, the result of
six month's experience in no man's land.
Arriving, aswc did, in advance of the
emigration, all wc foundwas the small,
doby storehouse and dwellings of Lane and
Durley, and lo,000 head of cattle grazing
on this valley, and for a month or more it
was dull and monotonous; but times have
greatly changed since them, and where but
two buildings could be counted on March
1st, there are now full' sixty, and a popu
lation of about 200 bona lidc residents of
industrious, orderly people. Although the
only community of same sir.e on earth that
is absolutely without law, we can say,
that so fai we have no use for it, as far as
pjmishing crime is concerned. Xot a broil
nor lawless act has been committed in our
town that would hae caused action before
a justice of the peace. Men's word can be
depended upon here in matters of business
and it is by far the most satisfactory place
to do business that I have ever found as
the bills are large and always ready pay.
We have two general supply stores, two
lumber yards, two good hotels, two res
taurants, one livery stable, one blacksmith
shop, one wagon shop, two barber shops,
and four saloons, a school house and church
building combined is to be built an once.
I have traveled nearly all over the conti
nant of Xorth America and can say truth
fully and candidly that I never have seen a
better farming country. I have harvested
eight hundred dollars worth of produce
from less than loO acres. One man Mr.
Dow, living fom miles cast of this town
has raised 0,000 pounds of onions on ground
broken in February. I have weighed
watermelons that weighed "50 pounds,
Sod corn that will make oO bushels to the
acre is common. Millett four tons per
acre. With such results can we not safely
count on greater results from these lands
when properly subdued. We have fine
corn. We had many good rains that did
not reach the Arkansas Valley. When you
see it lightning in the southwest you can
generaly conclude that we are getting
rain, magnificent showers that may
reach you and may not, the big end of
which -wc lcsiinie to ourselves, it is a well
known fact that the rain fall of the Reaver
valley is greater than any other valleys,
either north or south of us for 200 miles.
To all parties starting this way with the
intention of visiting the strip, do not stop
until you get here and see this country, do
not listen to people that are interested in
settling up other localities. Come here
where wood and water is plenty, and soil
that beats the world. 3Iillions of acres
that are vacant. We expect to have the
land office early in next -ear, Avhen the
homestead, pre-emption and timber claim
acts, will all extend to these lands. The
two latter probably only for a short time,
as they will doubtless be repealed late in
the next session of conaress. To those
wishing first-class locations we would ad
vise to come this fall and make their selec
tions, ami do the amount of work required
by our local customs to hold them untiUhe
land office is established, which is simple
and not exjensivc, enough to show good
faith, for instance, five acres of breaking or
its cquivolent in fencing or building. We
have no use here for busted boomers, but
to the man who has a good team and a lit
tle ready money, we say come. Such can
easily get along and make a home that will
soon be worth as much moucy as they are
in anv count rv. Wm. Waddle.

Our attention has been called to the fact
that in a former communication we credited
the erecting of a fine brick building to the
Sumner county bank, instead of the Citizens
State bank, to which the credit belonged.
Wc did not read the communication after
it was printed, so did not notice it. How
it happened wc do not know; we intended
to give honor to whom honor is due. The
fact is that the Citizens State bank is put
ting up a fine two-story brick building.
The lower story will be occupied by the
bank, and the upper story fixed off for a
hall, The building is an ornament to the
town and an evidence- of its public spirit.
It is expected to be read- for occupancy
about October 1st. Just now the scai city
of lime is delaying the worlr.
The citizens of this county are getting
interested in railroad projects. Petitions
have been in circulation this week to au
thorize the commissioners to call a special
election to vote county bonds, for the Fort
Smith, Wellington and Northwestern ;md
the Rock Island. The former to run
through Wellington and Conway Springs.
The way the propositions are now present
ed the bonds are liable to be defeated. The
people demand something positive in the
way of propositions, then they will work
with a will for the bonds The commis
sioners will meet today (Saturday) to con
sider the petitions.
Wednesday evening was one long to be
remembered by our mayor, B. D. Rowlee,
jind wife Some of their friends worked up
a surprise on them, the occasion being the
fifth anniversary of their marriage. Be
tween 8 and 9 o'clock nearly a hundred
headed by grandmother and grandfather,
dressed in olden styles and coming from
way down east(?), presented themselves
and demanded admittance, well laden with
the good things. All gave - themselves up
to the enjoyment of the evening. Mr. and
Mrs. Rowlee were made the recipients of
a nice plush rocker as a reminder of the
occasion. Time too quickly called for a
halt and the friends departed, wishing them
many returns of their anniversary day.
