THE PAVING QUESTION.
OI-ttcr TThlch 3Iust Now Scoa Confront Us.
During the absence of the editor of this
paper we see that the matter of paving has
been brought up. The EAGLE has only
been waiting for the past two years and
until the mains and submains of a sewer
system should be put in, to commence the
advocacy of paving several streets or prin
cipal portions of them. The sewer system
is going in. In apparently satisfactory
shape, and it is already apparent that no
urging or argument is going to be neces
sary with cur business men. They almost,
if not quite, unanimously recognize the
fact that this matter of paving is now the
only thing that Wichita lacks of being a
full fiedged city, with all the accompany
ing rattle of street racket and cleanliness
as to business. The only question which
seems likely to provoke discussion is the
material or character of the pavement.
The Eagle is on record, and has been
for years on this question, and it went on
record to the same effect two years ago.
There are only two kinds of pavement
worthy of consideration, Asphaltum and
Belgium or Granite block. The cobble,
the macadam, the vitrolized and ham
mered bricks and all species of wood, how
ever treated, area delusion and a snare,
as hundreds of cities have demon
strated over and over again. The
granite block is the most durable but it is
the noisiest, the hardest on all manner of
vehicles, therefore expensive, and its first
cost is the greatest. The asphaltum is the
smoothest, least noisy, most easily
swept, and next to the granite
the most lasting. The bed, or
foundation of the asphaltum pavement
of course never gives out. The surface
coat runs from five and seven years to
twelve and fifteen years with little or no
repair, which repair comes out of the gen
eral fund. Resident streets need but lit
tle repairing. The cost of sprinkling dirt
streets will keep the asphaltum always
cleanly swept. All kinds of stone except
granite and also all manners of brick dis
integrate and all woods gne way and dis
appear or become impassable from rotting.
When wo get ready let Wichita choose
one of cho two best, either of which
though costing the most iu the first place
will be found the cheapest even at the end
of the first ten years. For resident streets
for all times and all places the asphaltum
is the thing.
ELEGANT IWItTV AT THE METROFOIiE.
Last night the gentlemen of tho Metro
pole entertained their friends in a most
elegant manner at the hotel parlors. So
nicely arranged had everything been by
the gentlemen themselves, and the propri
etors had done everything possible to add
to the enjoyment of the occasion, that it
proved not only the most pleasant social-
e eut of the week, but also one long to be
remembered with pleasure. The two large
front parlors were thrown open and can
vass spread upon the floors, while the third
parlor made a most delightful place for
conversation aud social intercourse.
In ono of the rear rooms exquisite re
freshments were served. The ladies were
all in elegant evening toilets, tho lighter
shades prevailing. The attendants num
bered leading young society people of the
city and were as follows: Dr. and Mrs.
Schcrmerhorn, Mr. and Mrs. Duncan Ross,

WICHITA TEJLEGRAPH AND 3IESSENGEK
The charter for tho organization of tho
Wichita Telegraph and Messenger com
pany has been received and the organiza
tion of the company perfected by the elec
tion of the following board of directors for;
18S9: H. D. neiserman, Murray Myers, A.
G. Walden. Frank Burt, all of Wichita,
and Dick Walker, of Topeka. H. D. Heis
erman is president, Murray Myers, vice
presiden; Frank Burt, secretary and treas
urer: A. G. Walden, superintendent, and
L. E. Hamburg, manager.
The company is daily adding to the
number of boxes they already have and
their business is consequently ircreasing.
They make a tariff of rates for certain dis
tances, calculating closely the time which
the messenger should occupy in
making the trip and charg
ing the patrons accordingly. Should
the messenger be longer than the reasona
ble time, he is subjected to a fine, to avoid
which induces him to "let no grass grow
under his feet." The numerous messen
ger boys are all keptin thorough discipline
by Manager Hamburg, who is an expert in
the management of such an institution.
In case of long trips or trips where es
pecially quick time is desired, a messen
ger ou horseback is in constant readiness.
A special feature of the service, to which
most rigid supervision is given, is that of
distributing circulars, dodgers, etc, for
advertisers. Under ordinary circum
stances, it is practically impossible to get
a boy who will do such work faithfully,
but the newly instituted rules ore such
that a boy cannot fail to per
form his duties properly, without
being detected and discharged for the first
offense. Distributing monthly statements
for business houses is one more new fea
ture instituted, which saves the regular
collector of the house many trips to see
his customers who are also posted as to
their bills and have had au opportunity to
check them over, before he arrives to maKa
a collection. Delivering bundles and
packages is auother.
Within a few weeks all of the employes
will bo provided with new and tasty uni
forms. The office is open at all hours of the day
and night. In the inauguaration of this
perfected system of messenger service, the
citizens of Wichita are'but having-demonstrated
to them that she is becoming more
nearly metropolitan in her methods and
appointments every day aud they will
avail thfemselyes of the advantages in such
a manner as to show their appreciation of
the facilities afforded them.

WEDDING BELLS AND CAKDS.
From far away .Guaymas, in its almost
tropical setting on the shores of the Sea of
Cortes, the borders of whose waters know
no winter, whose flowers and fruits bloom
and ripen, there reaches us an engraved
card from Senior William L. Zuber, who
requests our presence at his home on the
Cth of Maich to witness the giving of the
hand and heart of his fair and only daugh
ter, Mary, to the life-keeping of A. E.
Mead, the auditor of the Sonora branch of
tho Santa Fe road. Albert Mead is i
Wichita bov, known to many of our local
readers, the son of Mr. and Mrs. W. B.
Mead, of this city, who will depart for
the Gulf of California on the 15th of Feb
ruary to paiticipate in the cro-vning event
of their son's life. The expectant bride is
said to bo exceedingly beautiful of face
and form and of the richness of complex
ion which the constant sun of that lati
tude ever imparts to tho faces of her dark
eyed daughters. The EAGLE congratulates
the anticipating pair most intimately con
cerned, not forgetting the parents on both
sides and all the relatives and friends.
nELr AN UNTHGTECTED G1EL.
Editor Daily Eagle.
Will you kindly announce to the public
that any person who could help furnish
garments necessary for a complete outfit
for a girl of 17 years, that she may be
mado tidy, to assist her to procure
work, would confer a favor by leaving
them at the W. C. T. U. rooms. Also
scraps that could be converted into quilt
pieces and other things for carpet rags to
furnish employment for girls please leave
at same place.
The sad and almost hopeless struggle
being made by the unfortunate and friend
less girl for whom this appeal is made, as
detailed to us by one who knows it all,
would stir the heart of anyone, especially
of such as symDathizo with the almost
hopeless chauce a simple girl whose un
happy surrounding and not a vicious
nature, has dragged her down. Now who
of the pure, true women of Wichita will
respond to this pitiful call? Ed. EAGLE.

Some of the Events In Jstorc for the "Wichita,
For sometime past Manager Crawford
of the Crawford Grand has been endeavor
ing to touch the popular chord of the
Wichita theatre goine populace, but with
vary and usually poor success, apparently,
judging by the size of the audiences,
which have during the present season
greeted the attractions presented.
He has billed only the best talent in the
respective lines of the dramatic and musi
cal art in which they are classified, but
that which was supposed would prove a
great card in this city has as frequently
found to be the opposite, much to the sur
prise of all observers. On the other hand,
some of which little was expected have
proven great cards. If there is a cause for
such vascillating fancies of the public
mind, it cannot be explained by any one
in the business or out of it.
Since the opening of the house referred
to, the line of attractions, has far exceeded
that presented for any similar time in the
history of the stage in Wichita, and those
billed for the near future will far excel in
general character and variety those pre
sented during the first year of the house.
However, the house which on Tuesday
filled tha spacious opera house
was almost a revelation to
those who have. of late, been
in attenda-nce at the recently given musi
cal treats of a high order recently present
ed. There were, in this connection, two
things plainly visible to theobserverof the
public pulse in theatrical matters. . One
was that the people of Wichita are begin
ning to display more of a tendency of late
to patronize attractions of accredited
merit, which tendency is not more due to
anything else than to an easier financial
feeling pervading all classes' of our.
citizens. Another is the well settled con
clusion in public mind that thoy are not
going to bo imposed upon with inferior at
tractions by the management of the house,
who, with such an amount of capital in
vested, can least of all afford, by such a
course, to depreciate the money making
capacity of their property, not only for the
present but for all time to come. Scarcely
anything hurts a city more than an ac
quired reputation as a poor amusement
town, for the obvious reason that
every popular organization of recognized
ability, which is playing to good houses
throughout the country .forms an unfavor
able and an improper opinion of the city
which proves an exception in its business
and naturally concludes that the general
business prosperity of that city is corres
pondingly below the average of the pros
perity found in those with which it is con
trasted. These conclusions, if confined
strictly to the profassional people interest
ed, directly' would not amount a small
fraction of what they really do, when it is
once borne in mind that the opinions enter
tained of a city by the press of remote por
tions of the country are moulded largeiy
by the expressions of these "feelers of the
public pulse," who try the same at a point
most susceptible to the throbbings of the
business of a city.
In order that the people of Wichita may
have no cause for complaint Manazcr
Crawford has already billed here for the
near future a large number of the leading
organizations of the present season and is
negotiating for a large number of others,
which, taken in connection with those
mentioned below, will constitute a list of
attractions of which few cities of her size
in the country can boast.
The next one billed is for Friday and
Saturday nights"of this week, February 1
and 2, when Effie Ellser, who made her
great hit in''Hazel Kirke"a few years ago,
will appear in Wichita for the first time
iu "Judge Not," a play of the highest or
der and one in which Miss Ellsler and her
excellent company aro all afforded
such opportunities as prompt many
of the leading critics of the
country to say that "Judge Not"
is the greatest of all of that favorites suc
cesses. It had been expected thit "Theo
dora" the highly emotional drama would be
presented on Friday and Siturday nights,
the first and second instants, but a correc
tion of the aates gives those nights to
"Judge Not," and "Theodora" will be
presented here in first-class style on the i
Monday and Tuesday nights of next week, (
February, tourtn ana nitn. juugingirom
the manner in which these companies have
both drawn in other cities farther east and
the way in which the best seats were taken
on last Tuesday night, those who desire to
procure good seats had better be at the
box office window rather early.
Among those which will follow, are
Madame Janauschek, in one of her strong
est casts; "Siberia," a grandly and dis
tinctively spectacular production and one
ot Bartley Campbell's greatest successes;
Hudson and Buckley's Juvenile Opera
Company; Cha3. Hoyt's "Postage Stamp,"
one of his latest and best efforts; Eunice
Goodrich, who is a favorite here; Dan
Sully's "Corner Grocery" which has no
superior; Little "Lotta," , who is
preparing to go abroad for some
time at the end oil this season;
Joe Emmett in his inimitable "Fritz;"
Davis and Muldoon's Specialty Company,
as side splittine laughter creators; Faunie
Davenport, in one of her strongest char
acters. "Sweet Sixteen" is an entirely
new, but very pleasing one ofthose billed.
Many of the leading celebrities will in all
probability be secured, if the general
business of the season indicates that they
will be justified in coming so fur out of '
their regular circuits to play in a single
city which is the only one in this section

HARRISON AND THE SOUTH.
The I'rcsltlunt-Elect rjndratniic Thus
Section and Will Ueul Fairly and JaaUjr
The recent visit of Southern manufact
urers to General Harrison has been njrhtfy
described as "the most notable and impor
tant political incident at Indianapolis sicca
the election." Tbe visitors were tea busi
ness men from Northern Alabama four
Republicans and six Democrats -representing
nearly 120,000,000. They brought a
memorial signed by 200 business men and
manufacturers of Birmingham, represent
ing 30,000,000 of capital. Nearly five
sixths of the members wcro Democrats.
These facts illustrate two points that
property has no politics, and that protec
Uon is gaining ground In the South. Tho
mission of these gentlemen was to nrpe
the appointment of men to Federal offices in
tho South so qualified by character and
ability as to command the respect and con
fidence of tbe profTC&sive business ele
ment, and to advocate the adoption of a
policy which, by Insisting on prctecUcs and
tho development of the industries of the
South, will bniid np two parties -which shall
divide on National issues.
This is the voice of tho "New South,"
which, instead of assuming an attitude of
hostility and taking General Harrison'
enmity for granted, is anxious to present
its views Xrecy and frankly, and to e"x
recognition and assistance for its grat
material grotrth. Nothing conld better
illustrate the chzzge in tb South than this
recent incident. The division on ether
than race lines wh-ch tsosa men se; is
something which has been recofrcized as &
prime necessity by nsprejudlced observers
cf both parties, North and Sonth, In
Atlanta and ether ciUes, whero aa h.s2e
was made on prohibition, tie race vote was
divided, and eacn side was strong enough
to insure a free baLot ad an besest count.
It would bo so cveryrrtcre with a frank
division npea thoiisae of protection; and
it can not be denoted that tho u solid
Scsth" will divide upon this issufl as iu
canufacinrisg interests increase, unless a
disposition is hown io revive sectional
animosities, and to insist upoa Federal in
terference t.. . r-ray cCJctab. Bat,
says Leslie's, r . aot apprehend any
thing of the h-oi, rue part of General
Harrison. His recct-oa of the Southern
deiega:s- shewed an appreciation of th
Southern prcblcra and a desire for fair
treatseat He rt comis tie fact thttjtha
soutn is mating progress, nna mat recerai
intervention per te is an evil.
He is on record as against Federal aid to
education in tho South, and as in favor of
self-help. Ono dollar voted by the peopU
of a school district is worth ten dollars from
tho United States Treasury," ho said In hit
Senate speech of March, 1S34. The sound
ness of his opinion has been vindicated bj
facts. Vrithm four years Florida Increased
tho amount expended upon her common
schools from f HO.CCO to over $400,000. Th
Georgia Legislature has at last yielded to
tho demands of progressive sentiment, and
one branch has passed a bill appropriating
half a million dollars for tho public schools.
'I am glad," says ex-Governor Heed, ot
Florida, "that the record of General
Harrison whilo Senator justifies tho opinion
that no more such foolishness as tho Blair
bill will be encouraged by tho ProMdcnU"
This record, and General Harrison's re
cent attitude, show that ho understands tho
South. Ho will probably solcct a Southera
man for his Cabinet, and instead of attempt
ing an arbitrary attitude, bis policy will bo
fair and even liberal National in the broad
est sense and it can not but result in tho
building up of tho Republican party at the
South and tho obliteration of the old race
lino in politics.
A. Striking Example of It In tha Demo
cratic Administration Now Drutrlng- to r
There has never been In American hhv
torya more striking cxamplo of extrava
gant promise followed by utter falluro ot
performance than has been furnished by
tho Democratic Administration which U
just drawing to a close. It is not neces
sary, for the purposo of making tho aser
tion good, to go into any intricato matterf
of politics or economics, or to expose thi
innumerabla mistakes and blunders madi ,
by Mr. Cleveland and his advisers, but It
may bo rested with safety upon a com
parison between tho pledgeii of rcfona
and economy mado in 1SS4 and tho facts a
shown bv the official reports In 1SS3.
Look, for instance, al the I'ost-ofllco De
partment. Vilas, and after him Dickinson,
promised reform in every branch of thftt
service, careful supervision of every de
partment, faithful and diligent officials and
an economy which should be an example to
all future administrations. What aro tha
facts 1 That department never was s
feebly and inefficiently administered lcc
it first cams into existence, ltobberies ot
molls havo been frequent, tho standing ot
tha employes has been lowered, tho publit
money has been squandered and tho wbolo
postal service demoralized. Tho ratio of
errors in tho pos' offices has increased
enormously that is, the number of mis
takes mado In handling a given number of
pieces of moll matter -and hundreds of tet
ters go astray which there is no excuse, for
not forwarding correctly.
Consider, tco, tbe case of tho Nary De
partment. Whilo wo had a Republicaa
President, says tho San Francisco Chron
icle, tho Democratic House fought every
appropriation for a navy, but promised that
when they could expend tho money under
tho direction of a Democratic ExecuUvf
they would build a navy worth mentioning.
What have they dono In four years I Par
thtly built three or four "commerca de
stroyers," as Secrotary Whitney calls thesi,
spent a lot of money on a warship thai
would not float if they dared to launch her,
buiit a dynamite cruiser about which thor-
Is now a wrangle between tho Nary Depart
ment and the builders, and that is alL
In tho Treasury Department a thicjf bar
occurred which was never known ndei
Republican rule, the escape of Treasury
notes which had been redeemed for can
cellation. Thus far three bills that bad
been redeemed and were supposed to have
been destroyed have ayaln been presented
for redemption, and no boa seems to know
how many of them may b in circulation.
But tha catalogue of all tha defect aad
shortccmlng-s of tb Cleveland Admlsbv
tratioa would b- a history of tha four yean
of Democracy, and that U for tha fctur
historian. It mutt sudce to say that toa
