MEETING OP CITV TEA CHEKS.
The city teachers held their regular month
ly meeting last Friday night at the high
school building. Speeches n ere made by a
number of teachers and the superintendent
discussed a number of topics of interest.
Some of the members of the school board
were lso present and gave assurance that
unless something unusual happened tho
guillotine would not be stained again soon.
Held a Quiet Meeting Last Night and Settled
the Right of Way Question of the
A special meeting of the city council was
called last evening at 7:30 o'clock for the
purpose of considering the question of grant
ing the Kausas Midland a riht of way into
the city. His honor, the mayor was in the
chair and Councilmen Healy, Caroy, Harrii.
Stone, Richey, Brown, Allen, Kenyon and
It seems that it was not intended that the
public should know anything of the meeting
so that as little excitement should prevail as
posdble. But few besides those interested
in the road wore present.
It will bs remembered that the ordinance
submitted by the company asked a privilege
to select a right of way from the following
streets and avenues: Wichita street, Fourth
avenue, Washington avenue and Hydraulic
Ever since that ordinance has been before
the council each member of that body
has been daily besieged by people w ho op
posed allowing that company so much free
dom and further seemed anxious that no
more streets than what was absolately neces
sary be set apart for the use of railroads
This public sentiment caused tho railroad
committee to refuse the company any or the
streets and avenues mentioned in tho ordi
nance. Tho committee decideded to recommend
Mosely aveuuo and acted accordingly. Tho
report was adopcen by the council without a
dissenting vote. So as it stands the Kansas
Midland will enter the city by Mosley av
enue. Tho route as specified iu tho
ordinance allows tho road to
enter tho north limits of the
city on Washington avenue until it reaches
tho Frisco road. It then goes west on Dover
to Mosley avenue, and Ninth and Mosley to
the south limits of the city.
It is intimated in counoil circles that an
other important road will also bo given Mos
ley avenue as a right of way. In other words
the idea of inviting two or more roads to
use one street seems to be gaining ground.
Already Mosley avenue has been granted to
two roads, with indications that it will bo
granted to another
W. J. Thompson was before his honor,
charged with being drunk. Ho acknowl
edged the corn and was lined So. As he had
not calculated on this additional expense to
his carousal, he did not have anything with
which to keep himself from the cooler and
was escorted there by the officer.
W. J. Foley had evidently been having a
vary largo time as tkero were two charges
against him, drunk and disorderly and re
sitting the officer. For each offense he was
finuil ?7, but more fortunate than his prede
cessor, he had money enough to keep him
self from the cage.
Frank Collins had been drunk, was assess
ed tho usual fine, but execution in his case
John Phipps was a bold, bad, bloody man
who was trying to get up a little whow at
the museum. Two charges wero put in
against him by Officer McKee, disturbing
tho peaco and carrying concealed weapons.
Tho method of teaching by tho kinder
garten system is attracting tho attention of
all thoughtful parents and observing per
sons in general. Mrs. Ifoble Piontis in her
interesting notes of tho recent social club at
Emporia, saj-s: "The future of the normal
school which attracts tho attention of wo
men is, and alwa3's will bo tho kindergarten.
Much has boon said about this mothod of in
structing littlo folks, and numerous as have
been tho experiments, it is ?afe to say that
no one can fail to learu something from a
visit to the normal and a talk with tho ac
complished Miss Emalo Kuhlmau." Tho
kindergarten in Wichita is finding favor

rents of the pupils b?ing highly pleasjd with

A HAZOK AND A HCN.
A couple of coloi td gents at one of the

them exhibited his time-honored razor. The
other, strange to sny, was not armed, and
sought safety in flight. They made things

AT THE G. A. R. HALL.
Mr. Cope gave another of his most delight
ful elocutionary entertainments last even
ing. The attendance, however, was not
much larger than the first performance; the
ten cent opera and the dime museum proving
too strong attractions for this superior en
tertainment to compete -with.
"How Ruby played the piano," was a very
amusing recitation and heartily enjoyed.
Mr. Cope afterwards gave a selection from
Julius Cffisar; the scene in which Cassius en
deavors to work up the noble Brutns to tho
point of taking Ccesar's life. It was a fine
rendition of ihis magnificent scene, and was
the best feature of the program.
After reciting the '-Fall of the Pemberton
Mills,"' h concluded with the amusing skotch
from Mark Twain, "Uncle Remus' Appara
tion.'" Mr. Cope has made a most favorable im
pression as an elocutionist, and the applause
received from his audiences was a merited
testimonial to his worth.
AT THE OPEKA HOUSE.
Tho Casino Opera Company la
closed their week's engagement in
with the Mascotte.
The house was, as on the previous perform
ances, well filled, and the play well received
by tho audience.
Miss Harvey, who last evauing had the
character Bettina; Miss Hatcher that of
Premier Liannetto, and Mr. Dixon, who rep
resented Lorenzo have ninds a very decided
hit in this city, and havo won an enviable
placa in the estimation of theater goers.
The museum last evening drew a large
audience. This pleasant resort appears to bo
growing in favor.
Tho freaks in the curiosity hall appear to
have made a number of friends, and have
during the past week accepted several invi
tations to diuo out. The Dufranos, the glass
eaters, wero up to the Manhattan the other
day at Mr. Roberts' invitation, and somo
cruel minded guests said thoj- devourod all
the goblets for dessert.

The organization of tho stock company for

The fashionable dramatic event of tho sea
son will be tho return of the beautiful young
English actress, Miss Adelaide Moore, who,
supported by her own superb company, will
appear at the opera houso on next Friday
and Saturday nights, with a special ladies'
matineo Saturday afternoon, producing on
Friday uight a grand double bill, consisting
of Gilbert's charming mythological comedy
of Pygmalion and Galatea, and the spark
ling comidetta of the Tho Happy Pair; and
at the Saturday matineo Shakespeare's beau
tiful love story of Romeo and Juliot: on
Saturday night Bulwer's romantic drama,
Tho Lady oi Lyons. Miss Moore and her
magnificent company aro so woll remem
berod by Wichita theater goars that to speak
of their abilities would bo to say tho least
superflous. Miss Mooro will display some
magnificent new dresses which sho has just
received from Worth of Paris, aud hsr col
lection of diamonds repi osonts a small for
tune. Miss Mooro travels in her own gor
geous palace car, which was built expressly
for her at a cost of $52,000, and is conceded
by experts to bo the finest railroad car in
America. It is finished in embossed leather
aud araarantb wood aud satin wood inlaid
with mother of pearl and ebony. Tho car
will arrive in tho city next Friday morning
and be sidetracked at tho St. Louis, Fort
Scott and Wichita railroad depot. It will
be open for inspe-tion from 2 to 3 p. xs. The
public ara cordially invited and ladies will
