We learn from private sources that
during speaker Carlisle's address in Wich
ita, Wednesday eve., he made some refer
ence to James G. Blaine, or at least spoke
his name. Almost before it was out of his
mouth the audience commenced cheering,
fairly lif'ing Mr. Carlisle ofE his feet and
making the opera house tremble with the
thundering applause. la Dorado Republican.
It is said that twice our honored guest
that night happened to mention the name
of Blaine. The audience being largely Re
publican would have taken the roof oil of
the house but for their respect for the
We are glad the Eagle has come to the
conclusion that the JToit Smith road is
worth having. Some time ago when the
Iscws was strongly advocating that line the
Evole pooh! poohed! the idea of any such
road being built. You see at that time Mr.
Wood was not intending to go to Wichita
with either main line or branch, but as he
is willing now to gie that burg a branch,
a great Hiange comes over Marshy s dreams.
The Eagle advocated a line down the
Arkansas Valley to the Mississippi river
f loin Kansas before the News was ever
thought of or its editor had ever written a
line for a newspaper. The Eagle said
that the line from Arkansas City to Hutch

Poor old Wichita, with all of her boom
and boasted wealth cm not a!Toid to pay
her mayor a salary and he has sensibly ic
signed. The mayor of every city should
be paid, not necessarily for publication, but
its a matter of good faith. If he is a good
ma'or he is compelled to use a large por
tion of his time, especially in a rising city
like Wichita. Time is money to him. His
private business muM, in a measure, be en
trusted toothers whom he must pay. Arich
ita could well ailord to pay her executive
otticer handsomely. State Journal.

his parting injunction. Lands here are held

beheld the vast ocean. As an introduction
I asked him who discoved the Pacific. He
looked dazed for a moment and then an
swered like a good Sunday school scholar,
