Bcduceu Kates for the General Alger Pay Cer
tain to Kef.aU In an Immense Crowd
The Various Coinmitec Dunn
The General Alger committee met at
Hotel Metropole last evening and dis
cussed many features of the program for
General Alger's reception on the 25th
iust. The committee is. giving the matter
considerable attention and all are certain
that the day will ba one long to be re
membere! by the comrades of the state
and Oklahoma, many thousands no doubt
beiuy present. The success of the railroad
committee in netting half fare for a radius
of two hundred miles is refreshing, to put
it mildly, this allows the eastern part of
the state and nearly to the west line.
Dode City is not reached by the two
hundred miles and this fitct is much re
gretted It is thought some arrangement
can be made to extend the rate to the
west Hue of the state, which wil. accom
modate all. The Oklahoma country will
be accommodated and many are ex
pected to be in attendance. Ac
cording to the most reliable informa
tion a majority of the old soldiers m
Oklahoma are from Kansas, aud it is es
timated they will feel more than an or
dinary interest in the reception to be
given General Alger.
The committee took some important
sttps in advertising the occasion. The
advertising committee made a report
which was virtually adopted. This feature
ot the work has ben held b tck to some
extent by the fact that the rate question
had not been settled. As soon as all that
hed been asked for had been conceded the
committee had a very broad aud substan
tial foundation upon which to work. As
agreed upon, the press of the state will be
invited to give as much attention to the
matter as will be of a great help and not
prove a burden. The railroads have kindly
consented to give some attention to the
question, advertising freely at every sta
tion, which means advertisement in
every town, small and big, in
the state. Postmasters at poiuts not on
railroads will be furnished with posters,
and it is believed all will take enough in
terest in tne question to make the best Use
of all advertising matter sent. It is be
lieved thorough work on the part of the
advertising committee is most imperative,
and its importance is recognizee by the
gentlemen having the matter m charge.
The committee on decorations having
charge of Garfield hall, are giving their
work considerable atteution. With H. L.
Pierce and Torn. Noble to design, and
with the able corps of assistants at com
inaud to execute, every assurance is given
that Garfield hall on this great occasion
will attract considerable attention and be
in every respect in keeping with the gala
The program for the day, while not
rounded out in detail and complete
is in by no means a chaotic state. All the
more prominent features have been agreed
upon and only the finishing touches are to
he added. The committee will meet again
Monday evening to prosecute the work.
The leadiug hotels of the city are com
mencing to hear from prominent men
throughout the state who are securing
rooms. The one happy feature about the
city in this respect is that there is more
hotel facilities in Wichita than in any
city iu the state, hencd better prepared to
take care of the crowd. Should the hotels
fail to be able to meet the demand .1 com
mittee having that matter in hand will
fiud many hundred latch striugs out in
residence portiou of tho city and all will
be given deserved attention.
HOW IS TJUS illt. TAX PAVEIC OF
A careful scrutiny made late last even
ing of the registration books of this city
discloses the astouishitig fact that but a
very small per cent, so small that it can
hardly be reckoned a fraction of the busi
ness men, of the tax payers and property
ho ders, ot this city have as yet recorded
their intentions of using their vote this
spring to protect themselves. How is
this? What does it mean? Where will it
lead to within another year? It is simply
astounding! There is no satisfactory ex
planation, no plausable excuse for the
present showing made by the books of
registration. Apathy or despair are
equally unsatisfactory in the face of tho
facts that are conversaut even with school
children. Five more days close tho
books which bear only the names of those,
for the most part, who have been per
suaded to register in the interest
of some mdividunl and who
havo no direct iuterest in the
result of that registration farther than it
makes for ihe advantage of tho individual
in whose interest he recorded his name.
There are no political principles at stake,
only dollars aud cents and an honest, wise
and economic municipal government, yet
those ho must directly aud iuevitably
suffer in the event of the failure to secure
such a government refuse, or neglect one
ot the simplest aud plainest duties, even
1 Ayoi.'ing the open, plain and only possible
way to protect themselves. ith no ma
terial change iu the registration books in
the next live days and the result of tho
coming election can as certainly be seen
upon their pages and as definitely predict
ed as the rising of tomorr -w's suu. The
whole matter has resolved itself down to
this: Do your duty or otherwise keep your
mouths shut and pay the penalty when
you call on the treasurer for your aunual
FKW VOTEKS SO TAK.
Commissioner of elections. Colonel Tay
lor, says the registration is scarcely over
eighteen hundred, when it should be, for
the spring election, at least 7,000. The
absence of names ou the enrollment books
is supposed to be the result of little inter
est so far shown in the election. It may
appear to many as a revolting chestnut,
but for tho beuefit of some it might be ob
served tba. no one will be allowed to vote
who has not registered since the 1st day of
January, this year. The enrollment books
for each year are complete and no hold
over clause about it.
Yesterday there were more names en
rolled than duriug any other day in the
year. The candidates were rushing aronud
but aiming to keep as quiet as pos-ible.
From a glance at the commissioners office
it would apuear that very few were pres
ent who were not reminded very forcibly
by candidates. It is heped that this week
will find the registration work coiug
along rapidly, and the total will be large
enough to indicate that the property own
ers in the city show an interest in local

gkeat demand rou Kansas pkopekty,
The directory of the real estate exchange
decided yesterday to suspend fees for list
ing property for thirty days. The adver
tising matter sent out by the exchange
has resulted in numberless inquiries for
property, farm lauds mostly, but an
evident desire also to find out valuations
and prices on town and city property.
The action of the exchange iu making it
free for all to give list of property
is the natural' result of so many inquiries.
It is hoped the farmers who wish to sell
all or part of land will make the fact
known to the exchauge and "offers" thus
made will be given due consideration. The
members of the exchange are much grati
fied over so many inquiries being made
and has emphasized the belief that in
formation sent east concerning Kansas is
not without good results. The members
are stimulated to proceed with sendiug
facts east concerning the state and in this
way creating a demand for Kansas homes
among those who can be greatly benefitred
by changing location.
THE FA IK.
The meeting to be held nt the board of
trade rooms on Tuesday the ISth, promises
to ba largely attended by tho farmers of
Sedgwick aud neighboring counties. Its
object is the organization of a district fair
aud the meeting has been delayed until
this time m order to give all the farmers
an opportunity to have representation. It
is the design of the projectors that this
fair shall include a large territory and be
iu keeping with tho other enterprises that
are iu hand. It bids fair to rival any fair
ever held in the state and no oue will be
greatly astonished if it exceeds all other.
The following letter written to the pro
jectors of the fair .ives not only the ideas
of the writer ou the advisability of hold
ing a fair but his opinion of Wichita ami
her surrouuding territory, and the prob

Deah Sip.: Yours of March 0 received.
I most fully eudorse the idea of a fair on a
latge scale. I consider that such a meet
ing and I'riendlv competition of the great
southwestern counties m vicing with each j
other in the exhibition of their pro lues, j
will do more to bring desirable emigra
tion into the state and especially our great
southwest than volumes of books or otner
pnti ted matter. I say "desirable"' emigra
tion, for be it known that the farmers will
never agree that the high standard of
citizenship iu Kansas shall ever be low
ered. 1 will exrt every influence I may pos
.ess to bring about this desirable end.
Tin jealousy of rival cities Is the principal
hindrance, and I do hope that local strife
may casv fur awhile, and this south
western Eden will enchant the eyes
and win the hearts f all the world.
Of course j-ou will understand that cheap
tniusportatiou will cut quit a figure. I
feel assured that 1 can present au attrac

A XJTelr Time iu the Third and More
Quiet In the Sdxth.
Shortly after S o'clock last night the
court room was occupied by about one
hundred voters of the Third ward and Mr.
P. A. Rohrbaugh inquired who -was re
sponsible for the call for ameeting. While
the question could have been answered by
almost every one, and especially after a
glance at the crowd. The meeting was
finally organized by making .Judge B. L.
Keenan chairman and J. H.McCall secre
tary. The chair appointed Noad Allen
and George Adams tellers, and after a
great many motions and cross motions it
was decided to take an informal ballot for
candidate for couucilinan. The ballot re
sulted as follows: B. K. Brown, 49; S. J.
Howe. 21): scattering 10, and the chair de
clared Mr. Blown the nominee of the cau
cus. About this time there was some
blowirg off superfluous steam.
Cries of a, trick were heard
in the land and many withdrew
Iu the midst of the confusion many mo
tions were made and as many given no at
tention. By acclamation to complete the
program N. F. Naftsgar was nominated
for school board. There wa3 considerable
loud talking over the affair after the ad
journment. The fellows who had come
organized for business were much elated
over the result, and the fellows who had
left their smelling faculties at home were
commencing to "see what they could see."
In the Sixth ward the meeting was a lit
tle more harmonious. J. E. Hollowell was
elected chairman and W. T. Proudfoot
secretary. An informal ballot resulted as
foilows: J. II. Mercer, 47: Chas. Mossbach

ABOUT OUK BOYS.
To the Editor of the Eagle.
There is certainly nqt a mother of grow
ing boys in this city who does not feel the
need of some outside agency to supplement
the homo iutluence; something that will
appeal to the manly attributes of the boy
and inspire in him a love of industry, in
tegrity and usefulness; a place where re
ligious teaching is adapted to boyish
minds, and lastly a place where the boys
may occasionally spend a 'pleasant
evening in reading or harmless games.
An effort has been made to meet this
want. For several months two young men
have been working earnestly, in the face
of great difficulties, to organize such a
work among boys and for boys I refer to
the Boys' League, with which many of
your readers tire already familiar. It
started first with a boys' prayer meeting,
which was attended oy only four boys:
this simple beginning was the nucleus for
a work which now reaches about 100 boys
from 12 to 16, not among the poor and ne
glected, but all classes. To accommodate
the steadiiy increasing numbers who at
tend these social autl religious meetings
held by tho league, three beautiful rooms
have been rented in a central location, but
they are as yet almost entirely unfurnished
and destitute of nearly everything that
would make such a place attractive, The '
young men who superintend this work are
dok'g it entirely on their own responsibil
ity, without any compensation, and are
entirely unable to furnish these rooms.
Much of the time which they would gladly
devote to the proposed work of the
le'igue, they must spend in providing
suitable accommodations for the crowds
of boys who come to tho rooms, and
I uder the circumstance it is certainly re
markable that so many boys have been so
successfully managed. Can we mothers
afford to hesitate and see this good work
crippled for want of help? Shall we not
furnish t-ese rooms neatly and stand
ready to aid iu every way possible this ex
cellent movement I feel sure that in
hundreds of families there are articles of
furniture that can easily be spared. Some
books, or games or magazines that would j
help to brighten these rooms. Shall we
not gather them up and put them to this
use? That this should be done, and done
immediately, is the conviction of many
ladies who are deeply interested in the
work of this society, and after consultation
with them we have decided to call together
all the ladies in the city who a'-e willing to j
help in auy way, and form a mothers cir
cle to aid the work. The initial meeting
wiil be held at 1127 North Topeka xvenue,
next Tuesdoy afternoon at 8 o'clock sharp.
Please come ready for immediate action.

THE SEDGWICK COCNTV TEACHEUS.
Tho teachers of Sedgwick county held
their last regular meeting for the yoar at
Lewis academy. The teachers were nearly
all preseut and manifested their wouted
zeal and interest, winch shovs that, de
spite a year's work in the school rooi,
with its trials, pleasures and vexations,
they never become "weary in well doing"
and are constantly on the aiert to improve
and advance in the profession. The main
feature of the afternoon was the address
of Chancellor Everest, of Garfield univcr-
.i, nt-.. f. ,-r v,i,s,,..i
sity, upoa the Viiste of Educational
Fotces,-' of which the following is a syn-
The first waste of educational force is
.the waste of educational money. A great
amount of money is wasted in the con
contruction of scliool buildings, of towers,
furnaces, embellishments, etc.. which
could bo used to much better advantage iu
increasing the salaries of teachers, thus
securing more efficient teaching. Would
it not be far better to invest in a good
library or a cabiuet to illustrate scienve
If a boy wants to know what a micro-cope
is it is much better to give him the real
thing and ht him look through it aud ex
amine it for himself .han to find the defi
nition ia the dictionary. Would It not be
well if there were industrial shops for
the boys who have no inclination for book
study, where they can learn some useful
trade to fit them fer the battle of life. Ed
ucational force is wasted by changing txt
books unnecessarily. Why not get books
that are perfect and then pass a law that
there shall be but one kind of grammer,
rhetoric or arithmetic. It would save
thousands of dollars now lost every time
books are changed. Much force is wasted
by employing teachers who are not pro
fessional. The teaching ue is very nar
row. Ladies generally begin at 1ft or 17
and get married before they are 35. Yoang
men teach awhile and then stop and study
law or some other profession. A man
who tries to make boot and shoes witbout
learning the trade wastes a pood deal of
leather: when he trie to teach school
without professional training, he spoils
a great deal worse than leather. He ex
jKscts to lern by his blunders. Educa
tional force is wasted in the great amount
of drmUerr and red tape laid opon teaco
ers, esp cially those of the graded schools.
So many papers to exmine, questions to
fram-. reoorta to make, etc., and some
teachers waste so ranch time with class
records and markings, which draw atten
tion from the main subject aad main sub
ject and make the teachers little more
man a machine. Force is wasted io trr
tng to accomplish tbe impossible,
trying to teach roans: children things
wfaica they can act accomplish. This is
not natural. A tree grows ooe way and if
von rererse the order uj placing tbe
branches in tbe rrotxod aud tbe root ia
tbe air, it may make an effort to erow bat
wiil oat saccesd. Try to jt pupils to
study something they can tears, aad for
which they bare a natural taieot. Yottsg
ladies sometimes try ieare intwdc when
they hare no tales! for it aad they only
succeed to tnakisg tfeecaselrai -ird. tbe

Another great waste greater than any
other is the unwillingnoas of teachers to
let pupils spell out their lessons for them
selves. Suppose a boy is learning to
write. 3"on can't do it for him; he must
take take the pen in his hand nnd make
the letters for himself. And so ju all the
arts and sciences. You must lenrn them
for yourself or you will never get them.
Be patient with pupiU nnd allow them to
take time, aud they will make greater and
more thorough progress than in any other
Pror. Xnylor was next introduced by the
president, Supt. Pence.
Prof. Nnylor said he did not care to pre
seut any new matUrs to tho teachers, but
merely wished to suggest a few questions
which it would bo well for each teacher to
fask himself at the close of the vear's
work, vi: "What have I been able to ac
complish?'' "What have I done" "What
have I failed to do" Xo doubt at
the close of each day aud each
week these questions have bm-n contin
ually presenting themselves. The teach
er who is indifferent to the answering
of these questions U the one who will step
down and out, bi cause he has outlived hu
usefulness nnd is no longer wanted.
Prof. Kemp explntned how teachers are
interested in the expression of thought by
means of symbols, such as wonts, figures,
characters, etc. He showed the relation
of thought to the symbols of thought;
those who give all their attention to tbe
expression of thought never make good
thinker-. Some people express their
thoughts on canvas; some ex p res
their thoughts on marble; eouie by
moulding in clay; some in iron and steel

more defim until at la
arises in the mind at first it is vague and
shadow which we feel
becomes more aud
st it takes some
shape and is either bpoken or written. It
is expression that gives value to thought,
because it then wih lie transmitted to our
feliowmen. Expression of thought is the
true test of thought.
Dr. Stevenson, of the city schools, next
gave a short address to the afcrtinbid
ttacher. The following is an extract of
tbe good things he said: The great object
of education today is to get children to
tnink for themselves. Tne university men
say that the hseh .school parses the chil
dren to them without having taught tbera
tbis art: the high school lays the blame
upon the grammar achooi, as tney have
not learned to think there, the grammar
school falls back on tbe primary, and the
primary schools say the fault lies with
the mothers at home, who have
never taught the children to
pay atteution to a thiag live minutes
at a time in their lives, conseqnentiy i-y
are not in the habit of giving their atten
tion to auvthing. The child cornea to
fcchool with his books under his arm, walks
into tbe room, throws bis books on tbe
desk, folds hi anna aud looks up at the
teacher and ay: "Well, I'm here, wbat
are you going to do for mer" Teaching
the children to think for theinseires is
what makes the man of tbe boy and the
woman of tbe girl.
