Manufactory Located In Wichita by a Company
with a Capital Stock of One Hundred
- Arrangements for starting another enter
prise of dimension have been practically
completed. A company has been formed for
manufacturing the Brunswick stone. Those
interested are "W. K. and L. L. Carlisle, N.
A. English, J. 0. Davidson, TT.Daulaney, P.
V. Healy, B. H. and TV. C. Campbell.
Tho stone will be made of sand and Port
land cement to which will be added some
chemicals. There is a patent on the stone
which dates back to SI. There are man
ufacturies established in New England, New
York, Indiana and Kentucky. The offlce of
the leading company and manufactury is
located at Covington, Kentuckey. One of
the leading men of that company is Mr.
Phillips. Some months ago Mr. L. L. Car
lisle wrote to him concerning locating a man
ufacture at this point. He replied that he
would give the matter attention and visit
Wichita as soon as business would allow. As
a result he arrived in tho city near six
weeks ago, and it was then that the question
was presented to the business men of the
city in earnest. They were favorably im
pressed with tho enterprise and decided to
form a company and commence its manu
facture as soon as possible. The charter of
the company calls for a capital stock of
$100,000. The company has the exclusive
right for manufacturing in this state. The
stone is f aid to bo of superior value for
building purposes. It is used quite exten
sively in the sections w hero it is manufac
tured. Mr. TV. X. Carlislo has decided
to erect a fine i esidence of the same on
Waco avenue. The company has not
decided. where tbe plant will be located. It
is desired to get as good shipping facilities as
posMble. The matter of location is one that
is now attracting tho attention of tho com
pany, and will probably be determined in a
few da3'&. When that is decided work on
foundation will be commenced.
At first the plant will probably give eni
plovment to fifty hands. Theie seems to be
no doubt Lut that the enterprise will prove a
success, and the capacity will be steadily In
creased as tho demand rcquiies. This causes
the company to suspect that the plant will
before many months give constant employ
ment to a Hundred hands.

Mr. A . B. Coo camo to this city some
months ago from routiac, Michigan. For
some weeks he has been cleik for Cole & Co.
in their real estate office. Of lato often he
was in a condition unfitfor duties, and seem
ed to make but little effort to improve. His
dissipation led to his dischaige Monday
Yesterday about 11 o'clock Mr. J. R. Cole
learned that Mr. Ceo was "lushing" as usual,
and 'some of his old chums had given the
word out that he was flush with money.
This caused Mr. Cole to suspicion that some
thing was wrong, as ho knew that Mr. Coe
was not financially cheerful. He went to the
Wichita national bank and learned that Mr.
Coe had near 9:30 o'clock presented a check
which bore his name. Tho check called for
IGS..10, and was paid.
This information was sufficient to com
mence tho hunt. Mr. Coe informed Police
man Frank Brasier, who started on
the hunt. Mr. Coo was soon
found at tho Tremout hotel.
He was in an intoxicated condition and did
not seem much suipiised to see the officer.
He vas immediately placed under arrest and
lodged in tho cooler. On being searched
neur SCO wus lound.
Some days ago Mr. Cole sent him to tho
register of deeds' oflico with an instrument
to file nnd gave him the money to pay the
bill. He leturned in due time and stated
that everything had been done correctly.
Mr. Call went to tho office and found that
the instrument had not been filed. When
he was f eai died yesterday the instrument
was found in one of his pockets.

Some days ago n lad forged a check in
Kansas City for several hundred dollars,

found out the fact, and tho bank was noti

and in addition some detectives were em
ployed. A thorough hunt of that city made
fairly certain that ho had bounced that sec
tion. The authorities of this city were noti
fied to keep a look out for tho man with
such and such a description. One day an
officer thought he saw tho man, and being
engaged in a business thought the "snap'
would not spoil until 'onie more evidence
could be gained. The Kansas City authorities

The grand lodge was opened by Grand
Master Workman TV. P. Gilbert.
After hearing reports from the different
committees, the grand lodga proceeded to
the election of officers for the ensuing year.
Hon. J. M. Miller, of Council Grove, was
the unanimous choice of the grand lodge
for grand master workman.
The new grand master has been one of the
hard workers for tho order ever since its or
ganization in this state, and his election to
the highest office in the gift of the Grand
Lodge is a just recognition of bis services to

J. A. Motgomery, of Lawrence, was elected

ON TIIE TAPIS.
Last night a couple of would - be fishtors
moved their carca.-sen to the little brick on
West Douglas avenue, and found there a
third party who was also out taking in the
town. Tho third party wtis intoxioated
enough to place him leyond being able to
defend himself. The two thought to try
their fiste on him and commenced accord
ingly. When he had been knocked down on
the floor it became unhandy to stoop and
they tritd their boots ou him. This finally
became monotonous, and ouo gave him a slit
in the Mdo with his knife, aud tried to whet
the blade on a rib.
While the uihumau treatment was being
dealt out an officer w as -out for. On arriv
ing the duffers had disappeared. The iu
iii.Htc's of tho hou-o told the officer
that the man so terribly beaten up
pivo uo pos-iblo cause for sm:b
cieat meat and that the two lads were entire
ly in the fault. The ffker stated thut the
same lads were in the hsbit of stalking the
streets aud iisiting dhe, aud if a diunkun
man conld be found nnd there w as uo doubt
rthat they could handle him, they would en-
ga; in a little practice. The officers art' on
to their game and mean to i-ead tome bark
pag of their cusseduevj to them before
"And now conies another business enter
prise,"' said a stirring gentleman yester Jay.
"I know an item that would make a repot t
er's mouth water if he knew it. It's a dandy
and will be another boom for tho city when
it becomes known, and moro than a boom
when it gets into operation. Some weeks
ago a gentleman camo here from Cincin
nati with an idea, and some money to invest
lor his idea. He told some of the leading
busiue-s men, nnd they have also become ia
terested. As a result a company has been
formed and the enterprise is a settled fact."
"The business will employ from
tho day it is opened at
least fifty men. The business is one that will
thrive and grow here, and the capacity will
probably be increased."
"Itcaunot at present go to tho papers be
cause of one thing. The location has not
been determine". Two points are under
consideration, and in a few days one will be
decided upon and then tho public can have
all the particulars. If the whole affair wa
made public tho fellows owning the ground
desired for location w ould bouuee their prico
and the company suffer."'
Last night tho Young People's Society
gave an entertainment and social at the First
Baptist church. It is a well established fact
that the ladies of the Baptist church never
undertake an entertainment of any kind
without attaining the highest point of suc
cess in all that pertains to tho mental and
Besides providing an occasion to meet now
acquaintances and enjoy the exercises ar
ranged for the evening it was proposed to
charge a small admission fee' for the purpose
of applying it on the amount pledged by the
young people to the Baptist church now
nearly completed on the corner of Emporia
avenue and Tenth street, pledged by tho
young people's society.
The exercises of the evening commenced
with a vocal solo, 'T fear no foe," by Wm.
Bracken, followed by a vocal solo, "The day
is so dark," by Miss Lillian Hamblin; a se
lection by the Ladies Silver String Band,
composed of Mrs. Geo. C. Strong, Mrs.
Kramer, Mrs. S. Winch, Miss Delia Baynum,
Miss Mamie Manuel and Miss Lulu McCabe,
rendered to the delight of all They were
heartily encored, and responded to the guat
delight of the large number present. Mr.
J. TV. Coates then followed with a vocal
solo, "Sweet content," then Miss Lulu Mc
Cabe rendered in a most artistic
manner the piano solo entitled "Blazing
Star."' The president of the association Mr.
J. F. Shearman, then announced that the
literary portion of the program had been
completed, and the social and refreshment
features were then to occupy the remainder
of the evening. After thanking the audi
ence for their attendance and those w ho
kindly aided the entertainment, the infor
mality of eve-one making himself at home
was then the rule of the evening. The table
waiters were Mrs. Stanley, Mrs. Pittenger,
Mrs. Mrs. Rose, Miss Frances Foster, . Miss
Florence Foster, Miss Roso Westgate, Miss
Minnie Moore, Miss Sybbelle Herring, and
Miss Nannie Gilbert. At tho close
of the evening's entertainment it was
announced by the president that the net pro
ceeds had reached $&3.00, and that tho liberal
hearted member of the association who had
promised to doublo tho amount realized by
the entertainment had nobly come forward
and the full amount of $1"J0. 00 pledged to
the new church was entirely liquidated. Al
together it was a most enjoyable affair, and
its object was fully accomplished.
THE TWO INDIAN HOTS.
T. F. LIcMeachon Esq. has returned from
the Territory where he has been engaged for
somo time iu tho collection of evidence to bo
presented to the president in urging a com
mutation of sentence of the two condemned
Semeuoles, John Washington aud Siuionb
He says ns traveled almost 400 miles iu
wagou andou horseback over this, wild coun
try, sleeping m Indian hut::, and living upon
corn, but succeed in gaining somo very im
portant testimony for his clients.
He finds that the woman Mis. Bartell is of
Chei okee descent. This he can substantiate
not only by her own testi
mony but by the affadavits
of many reputable persons living in tho vi
cinity. Should this fact be cleai ly establish
ed the plea to the jurisdiction ot tho United
States district court in the cases can be sus
tained. Mr. McMeachau also thinks there is a great
deal of jealously and ill will existing tow ai da
the boys liom the iuterpicter. The latter,
ho thinks, made the effort to have the boys
punished in order to gel thtiu out ot his o.vn
way and not in tho furtherance of justice or
tho peaco aud quiet of the Seminole nation.
He discoveied, too, that the con
demned youngsters are not of such
a tenible b.id character nor the
woman upon whom the assault was
made so pure aud virtuous as the State is
tiying to make out.
Mr. Bartell, the woman in the case, was
not seen, as she was at her husband's ranch
m the Pawnee Nation. The relatives of the
prisoneis take an inteiest iu the case, but
they have little understanding of tho uature
of the puuishineut or the means by w hich
the two bos oau bo saved. Besides they aie
all very pour and have given aud can give
little assistance iu tho defense.
H. TV. Knight, representing tho proprie
tors of the panorama or cyclorama, i in the
city for the purpose of determining the
feasability or chances of putting up a per
manent building for the exhibition of the
Battle of Gettysburg, ou the same plan of
the permanent exhibition and building of
the same work at Chicago. After lookinc
the ground over, taking in the towns and
cities tiibutary to thU, he thinks that thre
can bo no doubt touching the success of tho
euterprie in Wichita. The painting is a
grand one worth many thouinds of dollars
The permanent circular building would cost
botw eea fifteen and eighteen thousand dol
lars. He is d-siroas of enlisting some of
Wichita's capital in the enterprise which he
is satisfied will av handsomely. It has bten
suggested that the pluce for the building
would be over in th River-ide park.
Mr. Gould is drawing plans for a residpnee
for Mr. W K Carlisle, which w ill l locat
e 1 on North Waco avenue. It will have a
front of forty-six feet and fifty-saven feet
deep and two stories high The material
used will be Bruuswick artificial ston
There will be a hall running from front to
roar of the budding. The stair case will bo
in an archway off the hall Around two
sides of the building will be a double piazza.
Tne design is the Neo-Grecian.
Many railroads now ruu iuto tho city of
Wichita, and there aie, in several instances,
moio than one platform a, which a passen
ger might suppose all trams stop. A larga
number of persons were standing at one of
these places yesterday morning waiting for
a train. This was not a regular stopping
place, and the cars w Inch w ere to be taken
passed tho place at an ordinary city rate ot
speed. One of the gentlemen, o show Inn
abil.ty, attempted to get aooard. This he
failed to do. Ho grasped tho end rail of
one of tho airs, but tho velo-ity of the
train was too great for his strength and he
swung between the car eud-. The next
thing the bystandensaw was a fall. Nearly
all turned their heads to avoid being w it
nesses to the horrible spectacle of a man be
ing cut to pieces. There vrai a yell, and all
was quiet. When the traiu had passed the
crowd saw lying beside tho track the bod'
of a man, but although alive aud uninjuied
it refused to move. By an act of Provi
dence the motion of the traiu had thrown
the body aside, leaving it untouched, but th
lellow was so badly scared that ho neither
spoke nor moved until assisted from his re
clining position. Train men Kiy it was the
narrowest escape they ever witnessed.
Verily Wichita is a city that is bound fo
come under tha municipal police law if the
bill now pending in the legislature is placed
in the statute of the state. Just think of it,
five places of amusement all open in full
blast, all well patronized last evening, viz:
The Garfield opera house, Crawford opera
house, the Museum, the People's theatre, a
musicaie at the Baptist church. The report
ers visiting each of the above named places
say the audiences seemed delighted with the
bill of fare presented to them. In this con
nection too much praise can not be give n to
the grand opera of "Fatinitza' at the Gar
field opera house. Those who do not avad
themselves of the opportunity this evening
to witness the best opera ever produced in
Wichita, will certainly regret it.
The strangers xrowd these halls every
afternoon and evening and the management
have had several applications from enter
prising real estate agents for desk room. The
real estate attraction will make the museum
complete. The rapid changes of bill make it
impossible for all to see tho various attrac
tions and it might bo well to run some of the
strongests casts a week. The famous French
clown and Storm and Rickling come next
week and a handsome clock of home man
ufacture. GARFIELD OPERA HOUSE.
Fatinitza was repeated before a very fair
sized and most enthusiastic audience last
nsght, and went considerably more smoothly
than on the first nicht Nothiuc cau be
more pretty and picturesque than the stage
setting and quaint costumes of .the cadets in
the first act, and the noisy finale w-ith its
accompaniament of guns and colored fire
brought down tho house. The leading mem
bers were encored, and tho famous marching
trio leceived a triple encore; tha delighted
audience wauted it a fourth time, but even
operatic singers are human. Tonight there
ought to bo a good attendance, as most of
our regular theater goers were at other en
tertainments. One member of the troup de
serves especial mention. Lee Walker, who
performs the fat eunich with an honesty ot
purpose, a rich, unctuous humor that is de
licious, and a make-up that with all its home
liness, is a lifo-like picture of what we sup
pose those gentlemen to be.
Last evening Hugh Fay and Billy Barry
opened a two night's engagement at Craw
ford's. The play presented wtis the popular
Irish comedy, "Iri-h Aristocracy." The
house was crowded and the performance
The Muls-Mulcahey and Muldoon two
humorous but entirely different and distinct
types of Irish character, were represented by
Messrs. Barry and Fay respectivelj. Both
are so amusing that from their first appear
ance to the closing of the three-handed rel,
there was hardly a situation that did not
keep the audience iu a roar.
The support was vory acceptable, the repre
sentation of Mrs. Muldoon by Miss Kate
Quinten and Honora Muldoon by Miss Elma
deserving especial commendation. Mr. Lacy
as Peter Belcher, a piactical joker, took
good care of his role nnd contributed not a
little to the fun.
Tho comedy will be repeated this evening
and w ill no doubt bo greeted by another
THE BANNER DAY.
Yesterday was another lively day in real
estate circles. The sales as recorded were as
a rule of the smaller class, but tho number
w as greatei'jtbau any other day in tho his
tory of the city.
At the register of deeds office three hun
dred and forty-three instruments were filed.
This surpasses any other day by forty-three.
The boom wave went iu sections as usual,
and the poms struck can be seen by a short
perusal of tho transfer columns.
