The stockholders of the "Wichita "Water
company, on yesterday closed the sale of
their entire plant and franchise to the Amer
ican Water Works and Guarantee company
(limited) of LIcEeesport, Pa. This company,
which now owns and operates water works
iu nineteen ci ies, and is purchasing and
constructing work at the rate of two or three
per month, is backed by millions of capital
and have their business the most thoroughly
systematized of any institution in the coun
try. Weekly reports are sent to the parent
office from all their works showing the num
ber of gallons furnished, number of pounds
of coal consumed, number of new consumers,
wath increase or decrease of revenues, and
every detail iu exact figures. They give no

They will immediately proceed to over
haul and reconstruct the entire plant of this
city and bring it to the front a? the model
works of the state a system worthy of the
foremost city of Kansas.
The National Tube "Works, being large
stockholders of this company, furnish
all their pipe without delay. As quick as
the weather tvill permit in the early spring
they will begin the laj'ug of iron mains and
will make all extensions oedered by the city
A new engine and pump house, new pump
ing machinery, the covering of the wells, the
parking and ornamentation of the gi ound?,
are among the improvements that will be be
gun within ton das.
Mr. W. S. ICuhn, the secretary of the
American "Water Works company, and who
acted as that company's agent in purchasing
the "Wichita "Water "Works plant, called last
evening in company with Colonel Lewis. Mr.
K. .-ays that tho lirst thing he did was to
order lour miles of additional iion
mains and that early in tho spring
heavier pumps and machmcrj- would
replace the piesent plant. in fact
the whole city will be torn up ttnd tho
system s-o arranged that the supply will go
through the city by two direction;.. jo that if
an accident should occur on one tet oi mains
the How could be imniedir.tcly sent through
by the other direction.
As tho Eagle has maintained, ihe old
company, being composed of business men
who had other matters to look after, were
more or leas embarrassed, but had fully met
its obligat ons and the extraordinary do
mauds made upon them. But, of cour.-e, the
new service and new plant will be metropol
itan in their proportions. That AVichita will
now and speedily have the bet and met ef
fective system of water works of any city in
the state, there can be no doubt.
THE LATEST SCHEME.
',1 can give 3ou today the latest scheme
out," said a corpulent gentleman of years
yesterday, as he braced up against tho .ter
"What is it?"' was the reply of a friend to
whom the eff ujiou was directed.
''Its another railroad racket," was the re
ply. "Its a uuiou passenger depot. It is yet
in a semi-chaoric state but it will get there
if an axle don't break."
"A number of the capitalists interested in
the north part of the ciy and a lew who are
interested personally at other cardinal points
are making an effort to have tha union pas
senger depot located at the j)oint where the
Santa Fo and Ft. Scott cross, which is near
Seventh street. The Frisco aud "Wi -hita &
Western have access to the same point, aud
the Rock Inland survey leads to the same
point, while it is the most convenient place
the Kansas Midland can have a depot. The
location being one "highly commendable has
suggested to these geutleman that
some assistance in the way of
a bonus would be sufficient to lend a solution
to this much mooted question."
"How about dumpiug the people oft at the
north polo of the city? That won't be very
convenient will it?" was the questions which
interrupted the speaker at this point of his
"See here, hear all the facts before you
cliuch a conclusion," was the impatient reply.
"Sun-ose you have been hearing something
of thee motor lines. "Well, ouo of Ihemn
will run from the depot on Fourth
avenue to Douglas avenue. A car ready
to accommodate passengers of each
train will give cheap, rapid and convenient
transit to the central part of the city. This
will settle the dumping question, you see, aud
settle it effectively to auy one who will look
at it philosophical!'."
Tho gentleman's little scheme did not seem
to be plausabls to thefew who hud stood
tho storm for the purpose of gaining point
ers. This fact did not appear a happy one
to the gentleman who appeared to be on the
inside of things.

An Eagle reporter was yesterday shown
at the bakery of Jo. Koehler, on North
Main street a luagnilicent banner iu-t re
ceived from Bcnzigar Bros., of New York,
for the Knights of St. Jo-eph.
It is a magnificent piece of workmanship
and is said to be the finest banner owned by
airy private society in the state.
The banner is eight feet in length and four
in breadth, is made from the best quality of
figured white silk aud is surrounded by a
heavy gold fringe. Upon one side as a
center piece is an oil painting of the head of
St. Joseph, and around it the inscription in
giit letters, "Knights of St. Joseph, "Wichita,
Kansas. Organized May 24, ISS4." Ou the
reverse as a centerpiece is an oil painting of
tho Holy family, a copy of rare excellence
from the old masters, and surrouudiug it
richly embroidered hand work in silver and
gold. Tho banner was secured b the
Knights and through the efforts of Mr.
Koehler, at tho cost of S200 aud is one of
which they mav justly be proud.

ing on the docket yesterday but civil busi
ness. Some civil cases were disposed of, but
they were of the smaller fry. The cold
weather seems to have an enervating in
fluence on the criminally disposed class.
The howling wild wind was still ou deck
yesterday in great shape. The storm of the
previous night had disposed of a major por
tion of the weaker signs, which gave tho
shivering pedestrian a better chance for his
1 fe. The streets were not crowded so much
as usual but still presented tho appearance of
a live city. Run a block, if you could, and
then pull in for repairs, if there
wits any chance, was the program followed
by a number of pedestrians. Few were no
ticed who sought the owner of a passing hat,
dilapidated by being tossed over material,
without regard to previous condition of serv
itude. A "bee-gum"' hat rolling along the
street at a 2:0 gait and an irate, stand-up
collar owner, with hair ou end, pursuing it
as fast as he could, was a very ordinary oc
currence. The thermometer played all day a few de
grees below the freezing point, bat the in
dustrious breeze caused one to think he had
struck a slice of the arctic region. Work on
nearly all the buildings was suspended.
Most of the gas lights wro blown out last
night and Tuesday night. The super
intendent of the company says that
if tho council will get a closed globe tho com
pany will willingly get them in place of the
boulevard globo which is now being ii'-ed.
The former would protect the light and make
it impossible to blow it out.
Some of the circuits of tho Schuyler com
pany were injured by tho storm Tuesday
niht. The damage done will inconvenience
the company to no small extent.
The county building was thronged yester
day afternoon by a number of office birds
who had gone there as they claimed seeking
a retreat from the storm. The general com
plaint filed was that the chimneys all "draw
down'' and they were compelled to vamoose
the rauch, as the' were unable to turn the
contrary chimneys upside down so as to give
the smoke the proper direction.
