DRAINAGE AND PAVING.
Timothy Coop, Esq., tho prominent and
wealthy English gentlamen of whom the
Eagle has made several mentions, and who
3et remains in our midst, makes us a friendly
call occasionally. Mr. Coop has been a great
traveler, having not only been around the
world, but having visited the principal cities
of the Orient, of northern Africa, Of Austra
lia, Europe and America, which places and
whose people he has studied with the eye of a
shrewd observer and the intelligence of a
practical and successful business man. He
came out to Wichita to seo it, expecting to
remain but two or three days, but ho says
that the life and push of our people and the
esuilerating influences of our - cli
mate are such that ho is completely
captivated, and that ho will not return
to London before next spring and that he
hopes to be able to spend. next winter here.
Of all the places he ever visited, and not
withstanding he owns a grand old homo just
a j-hort ride out of London, ho says he never
saw a place where ho would like to make a
home so well as here in ichita. He pur
chased, we understand, $:;0,000 worth of the
lauds of the Garfield University, and to help
out the founders of that institution, rather
thn ns n snecnlatiou. Tho truth is, if re
ports be true, he has little cause to worry
rin mr.n monev makinsr. But all this is
not what we started out to say. It was this:
Mr. Coop, in speaking yesterday of the
wonderful properties of the soil of this val
ley and of our peculiarly fine natural roads
and streets, said that there was no stone,
wood, cement, conglomerate or patented
pavement in tho world that sur
passed the sticets of Wichita, which
are composed solely of the natural soil. Of
course the old gentleman never traversed
them in a rainy season, nevertheless his ob
servation is true eleven months out of twelve.
As to our drainage, he said that few great
cities of the world, especially of Europe or
Asia, was so favorably located for satisfac
tory and cheap drainage as Wichita. The
Great Arkansas and its swiftly moving cur
rent through the heart of the city was a suf
ficient answer on tho drainage qucs'.ion to
an j-man who had traveled and sluddied tho
sanitation of the great cities of the world.
Mr. Coop although more than thu-e score and
ten is a sound, hale and very cordial Engli.-h
gentlemen. lie rides out almost daily for
tho sake of the rare, dr', bracing atmos
phere and tho bright sunshine, things partic
ular' prized b men who have spent the
best portions of their lives in smoky, foggy,'
NOT PROPERLY RliPKEsENTEI).
So long as our city council are so nearly a
unit on all matters touching tho general wel
fare and good of tho city, and so long: as each
councilman is patriotic and unselfish enough
to look ad vigilantly after the intorests of
every other ward as his own, the matter of
equal representation is probably of little con
sequence, but everyone must be cognizant of
the very unequal representation of tho re
spective wards in our city council. Take the
First, ward, which until very lately consti
tuted about one-third of tho population of
the city, and it has had but one-fit th of the
representation. The next legislature ought
to give us a new law for the governing of
cities of the first class, or materially amend
the pre.-ent one. But in tho mean time,
tho present council ought to get ready
to give us moro councilmon or
to so rcdistrict the city so as to make tho
representation more ejual. In discussing or
weighing this matter we would make the
further suggestion that some cities have
found it very advantageous to have each
ward run from one end of the city to the
other, each councilman being compelled to
represent suburban as well as business in
terests. Apply that rule to Wichita tho
wards would be about three miles long and
run from north to south. However that
would make little difference probably if tho
city was otherwise equally divided as to

just exactly the same way. Eagle.
Is it pos-ible, Mr. editor, that you agrco
with that slander on "Wichita! Certainly
you have been looking on '"the dark side."
It is true that the average Wichita citizen
is duly impressed with tho value of "back
lus," front, lots and corner lots in this "won
der of the west,'' and ho is absolnteh certain
that ho would rather own such lots right
hero m Wichita than any other city east or
wosr of the Mississippi.
Yes that is a fact, but let the Eagle
scream it to the world that thero are more
people in this same Wichita, also striving to
make their "calling and election" sure with
Gtxl, thau in any other city of like size in
the wet. '

Has the piercing eye of the Eagl;: failed

to the third eJnuch ln-fore securing seats.
Is not the Eagle telliug the world from
morning to morning of the large congregation-
that are nightly greeting Major Peun
at the First Baptist church, and that very
many thoughtful and intelligent men and
women are giving the mo-t serious attention
to uieir per.-onnl salvation?
The p -ople of Wicdta are not all saints by
long jump, but as a mim-ter of the gospel,
uve vears experience in tuts citv, and
nmong all classes of people, I deny the state

"See here," said a fellow yesterday, with a
dispeptic look, "what is tho use of having the

Yesterday was another busy day in tho
city. The weather had moderated sufficient

of building, which seems to be commanding
a great deal of interest now-a.days, even
more, if possible, than formerly, owing to
tho fear that cold weather is near at hand.
Many of the fine residences back from the
business streets are receiving their last
touches. A number of brick business build

While everyone expects that work will be
impeded soon by the wintry weather, there

THE MEDICAL ASSOCIATION
Ajourncd Iast Evening After Having Held a
Very Successful Meetinff Interesting
The association of homoeopathic physicians
of Southern Kansas re-convened yesterday
morning at 9 o'clock. The officers of the as
sociation for the ensuing year were elected
with the following result: President, Dr. A.
J. Kirkpatrick, of Anthony; vice-president,
Dr. L. S.Ordway;secretary,Dr. Albert Whit
lock; treasurer, Dr. C. EL Miles, of "Wmfield.
Dr. Miles read a paper on diptheria. The
subject was discussed by the association
xather extensively and with considerable in
"Work was resumed at 1 p.m. The con
stitution and by-laws accepted in the tem
porary organization were adypted. Drs.
Andrews, Miles and Buss were appointed by
the president as a board of censors.
The bureau of obsteterics being called, Dr.
Ordway read a very exhaustive and interest
ing paper on puerpural (child-bed) fever.
He took the grounds that a largo share of
this distressing and daagerous disease was a
result of a waut of appreciation of the old ad
age, "cleanliness is akin to Godliness. "Believ
ing that the neglect to properly use soap and
water, and now well know antiseptics have
often been thoVrauso of untold misery, suffer
ing and death. That a physician who is also
an accoucher can not be too careful of these
points. From his paper wj learn that there
have been made great adduces iu the pro
phylaxis as well as in the .treatment of puer
pural fever within the past few years.
That while it is yet a truly terrible disease,
by these new discoveries we are enabled to
often cut short and stamp out what would
otherwi-e almost certainly end fatally after
many days of extreme suffering.
The paper was well received and the sub
ject thoroughly discussed by most of those
Dr. Eveline Daily, of Winfield, read a very
interesting paper on typhoid fever.
Iritis was handled iu a very creditable
manner by Dr. E. A. Whitlock.
Dr. Andrews favored the association with
a paper on the Eustatian tube.
Sanitary Science, by Dr. Pratt, received
the compliments of several members.
When all tho papers had been read there
was a general discussion on tho topics intro
duced. Considerable interest was mani
fested and the debate was participated in by
Drs, Minick, Bail', Ordway, Welsh, LeBan,
Burris, Kirkpatrick, Pratt, Miles, Whitlock,
Tilden, Stoner, Johnson, Lillard, Huss and
The chairman of each bureau was appoint
ed by the president with instructions to ap
point persons to proparo papers for the next
It was decided that this association be rep
resented at tho meeting of tho state
association at Topeka on the first Tuesday in
next May. Drs. Kirkpatrick and Andrews
were assigned tnis work.
Dr. Ordway submitted the following reso
lution: Resolved, That wo pass a vote of thanks
to the Silver Strings Club and tho members
of the St. John's choir, that assisted giving
our reception music; also to Miss Maud Eng
lish for her most excellent recitation-; ako
to Mr. Haste for his original poem; also that
we pass a vote of thanks to the Masonic order
for the use of their hall.
The association adjourned near (' o'clock,
after having had a very successful meeting.
The next will be held at Wiulield on tho last
Wednesday of next .May.
AN INTERESTING DOCU3IENT.
In yesterday's issue mention was made of
some old papers in the possession of Mr.
Carlton. Mr. W. B. Mead, of this city,
great grand child cf Mr. John Mead, has
somo old documents that dato a round cen
tury further back than those given yester
day. Tho most interesting paper is tho
order of a town meeting held for the pur
pose of passing an order for a sub-division of
lands along the "Westchester Path," the old
highway that ran from New York to Boston.
It is written in a very legible hand, but the
paper is very yellow with age. Tho follow
ing is a verbatim copy of tho order:
"January the 12:1074.
At a town meeting it is fuly a greed iv
concluded that the Lauds Lying between
Myanus River and byrum river that Lyeth
