Very many, if not all of our old readers
will be surprised in the announcement that
Jno. 31. Steele has determined to go to I'u
get Sound, or the country adjacent. He
hat tucb a flattering offer that be thinks it
a simple duty to bis family and himself to
accept. Probably no citizen would be
given up more regretfully. John M. Steele
hat been one of the great factors In the
settlement of thin valley and the building
of this city. No tingle individual has been
so prominent or so effective. He was
among tbe very first settlers here, a young
mau Jutt out of the Normal school. He
was tbe first justice of the peace, and as a
beardless boy performed the first marriage
ceremony ever pronounced in the county,
He was tbe first legitimate Iteprcscntativc
Irora the county to the Legislature. For
thirteen yeart or more he has been con
tinually in the sen Ice of this people. No
task was ever too hard, no burthen ever to
large, no sacrifice ever too great for blm to
make in the interest of this city and coun
ty. Always willing and never desponding,
those in trouble went to blm at naturally
and as straight as one lost to a friendly
light. It hat often been said, and it it a
fact known to many, that he hat giveu
away enough In charity In the last ten
years to haye made him one of our heaviest
capitalists. Here be found and married the
woman of bis choice, and a true and loviug
wife she has been; and here has all bit
children been born and, alas, most of them
buricdf However great his future pros
perity and honors iu his new abode may
prove and thousands will wish tbctn rich
and full he no doubt will look back upon
Wichita as his home. We part with him
with deep regret and the wish that it were
not so. To tbe people to whom be goes we
say that they will find John M. Steele a
man In all respects honorable, enterprising
and the possessor of a heart and mind
swayed alono by the best of human Im
pulses. Mr. M. Block, who as a money loaner
has had his office with Mr. Steele lor years,
goes with him. Mr". Block knows the coun
ty to which they are going, well, and en
tertains no doubt of their suece-s. And so

When the editor of the Augusta Alliance
desires to lie, effectively, he would do well
to remember that it Is necctary to sail
somewhere within sight of the line of pro
babilities. This shutting bis eyes to all
truth, aud, like a tangle-haired escape from
an lusanc asylum, plunging Into the depths
of wild, nonsensical falsity, is only to make
spectacle ol hlmelf. Probably no pre
varicator since the day Annanlus fell dead
has ever sat cooly down and, in the absence
of strychnine whiskey or Its concomitants,
delivered himself of such a miserable mess
of inlsrcprcscntstion and shallow nastlness
as did the editor of the AJrauci last week
in an article on Wichita, her water, health
and people. He may have thought It
smart. We don't : and, wc dou't believe
bis readers If ho has auy do cither. Wo
were asked by a number of citizens to
answer the foul foolisbncs, but shall not
for It answers itself.
The Winflcld Ttltgram deuleu that the
people of Winflcld offered any objections
to the posting of Wichita's Fourth of July
bills, saying among other lively things :
"If the Earle wants to light, come down
and we will fight, any w ay you sav. from
'single leap' to 'catch as you can,' or 'side
holds to one mile and repeat,' you great
big, overgrown Palingenesis." Think of
such a dare as that and the thermometer
100 iu the shade. Our informant was the
bill poster himself, who, as we stated, saw
the mayor from whom the necessary per
mission to do the work was received. Wc
bad no Idea that a majority or even a re
spectable minority Interposed so foolish
an objection, but that there were at least
two pcoplo or the 40.12 who did try to stop
him it not denied by our beligcrant co tem
porary. Wlnfield is a mighty nice city
made up of extraordinary good people, but
we hope the TtUgram knows too much to
claim that in a population or 4032 there arc
not at least two mean men. As to tbe
camion question we just asked a polite
question, and arc satisfied with the Ttlr
gram'i pointed answer.
The Commonutalth says the St. Louis,
Ft, Scott & Wichita road is to be extended
one hundred miles west of Wichita imme
diately, but that paper deigns no authority
for Its insertion. It is very evident Uiat
great changes wero effected last week in
the status of several western roads, some
or which changes materially concern the
future of Wichita, but If there lives a man
who comprehends what is to follow we
haven't struck blm. Anthony counts on
getting the Ft. Scott & Wichita road, while
there has been serious talk of It ruuning
from here to Lamed or Great Bend aud on
up the Walnut river and west. The pro
posed cxtcntion, or cut off, from Wichita
to Kingman and to Dodge by the Santa Fe,
Is said to have been abandoned, and that
the road will go west from Sedgwick City;
aud that tbe 'Frisio will be operated that
way Instead of via Haletcad. There are
others who have information to the effect
that the Santa Fe will build southwest from
Sedgwick and the 'Frisco west front Wich
ita to form a junction some sixteen or
twenty mllct west or Wichita. Auother
rumor hat It that the Santa Fc will extend
her short line road from Burlington to
Wichita and to Dodge, making It the
through main line. For ourself we never
believe much about railroad, or what they
will or won't do until they have actually
did it or railed to. For a solemn fret wc
don't believe that railroad magnates them
selves know one day what they will pro
bably do the next.
The county commissioners are cutitled to
the sympathies or the public, those u nl or.
lunate gentleman being this hot weather
engaged In settling tome school district ap
peals. For the benefit or those not posted
it might be proper to say that a school dis
trict appeal is a case where about twenty
or tbe longest winded talkers or a distract
ed neighborhood assemble bclore tbe board,
take off their coats, and proceed to "argy"
the case. Pending the determination or
the matter it is usual Tor about hair on each
side to get fighting hot, at which stage or
tbe proceedings a commissioner is as liable
to get a volume or compiled laws smashed
over his head as any way. The superin
tendent or public instruction, who is gen
erally tbe innocent cause or tbe row, in
tbe meantime has an unexpected call to
the country, or otherwise he sits behind a
convenient stove or table and tremblingly
listens to estimates ot liim-elf which would
mike an average sbeep thief a brilliant and
honest character In comparison.
The committee of arrangements far the
Fourth, have, without so much as "by
your leave, sir," or "permit us to conler
tlie honor," made tbe editor of tbe Eagle
"President of the Day," and so put it on
the programme which was the first lutima-
tlon that we had of tbe distinguished con
sideration. It has only been a few years
tince we did fill that place, or tried to, and
it should have beeu somebodyelse't turn.
We don't know what tbe committee were
thinking about. Tbe proper pivot about
which tbe Declaration, orators flags, fire
workt, and twenty thousand people should
revolve would be a roaring-mouthed, deep
chested, broad-shouldered gentleman with
rotund bread bakct, and a unique view of
whose swallow tails would at once forcibly
remind the congregated patriots or the
compass of a Daniel Webster or David
Davis. Dapper little gentlemen do well
enough to swell tbe procession, or in a
pinch to twirl the old bird a time or two,
but for the head of an august dignidcation
of flourish and glory, never.

T. II. Stevens, of Anthony, was up on
Tuesday. He gives a glowing account of
crops and matters In Harper county. lie
says tbe wheat harvest is entirely oyer, and
there are but few fields in the entire conn
ty that will fall short of twenty bnsbels to
the acre. Corn looks very promising, and
the people of Harper and at her county
scat are happy.
The head-quarters for the gas works has
been established on Main street, opposite
tbe county building, where two rooms are
occupied in holding supplies, fittings, etc,
necessary to furnishing gas, While a num
ber or men arc engaged in plumbing resi
dences. The building for the manufacture
is being bulltas rapidly as possible, and tbe
pit is being pushed to completion at a rate
entirely satisfactory to tbe proprietors.
The McComb Brothers are spreading out,
not only In their trade but In manufactur

or through their immense stock of manu
factured goods. Tbe additional upper
rooms are needed for their workmen.
Dr. McAdams and A. A. Hyde, who went

The trade dollars are no longer good.
The government having repudiated tbem
as a legal tender, the Merchants Exchange,
of New York, last Saturday fixed their

action the AVicbita banks and tbe postoffice
threw them out. Merchants will probably
toon follow suit.
Of course everybody now knows that the
city made a mistake in allowing the use of
magncsian lime stone in guttering and
curbing. It is a signal failure. When first
put in our best Judges thought it would
staud, but tbe gutters along Main street,
put iu but five or six yeart ago, are nearly
played out, and one half of the curb stones
spilt and crumbled. The city should allow
no more of this stone put in for tbe pur

The nub of that joke will not materialize

itev. Jno. Kirby, formerly of this city,
addressed the Masons of California on St.
John's Day. The address, which is full of
new thoughts and new beauties pertaining
to this most ancient order, is published in
full in the Dally Stockton Jnitptndtnt. The
address takes the ground that the influence
or masonry for good is just begun to be
felt, that while it already embraces crown
ed heads and potentates or all lands, its
greater mission lies in the future.
The nest of house-breakers and sneak-
thieves, who commenced their work some
two or three months ago, are still with us.
There is no doubt but that they belong
here, and the police ought not to rest until
they have been spotted. Attempts to enter
two or three bouses have been made with
in the week. The best protection against
such robbeis is to keep a dog. In the house
at night, no matter how small only so it
makes a lively noise. Next to a dog is a
convenient revolver. When a man is dis
covered fooling with door or window after
midnight never stop to ask questions but
Mr. W. W.'Smlth, of Nappa Valley, Cal
ifornia, an old subscriber to the Eag lk and
an extensive land owner In this county,
came down upou us all unexpected tbe
other morning from the western slopes of
the Sierras. He was on his way cast, but
he said he thought he would stop over long
enough to Inquire the meaning of "palin
genesis." We told him we supposed every
body kuew that it was exprcssivo of the
process of hatching a live minnow from a
dead mackerel. He evidently thought as
much from the way he looked at us.
.V connection, for fire purposes, having
been made between the water-works and
the Little Hivcr, the engineer made a test
of the capacity or supply last week. He
says, If necessary, be could run six or eight
firc-uozzlcs at full capacity for two days and
nights or any length of time. But it is
thought with the greater capacity and
greater depth being made tothe well that it
is very doubtful I fever tbe valve oT the river
connection will be opened. A large num
ber or additional points are being put down
at the bottom ot the well for tbq purpose
of getting the purest waler to be had.
The Augusta Oazttte says that tbe 'Frisco
Company are putting in a switch, west of
the Whitewater, lor the benefit of the
ltogcrs Coal Company, which has secured
the privilege of working the fine stone on
the Scully land. With any quantity of fine
building stone within twenty miles of this
city Wichita has been unable to get stone
for cither building, foundations or side
walks at anything like a reasonable price.
Now that the Ft. Scott railroad runs right
through the same quarries that the 'Frisco
does we may expect stone at reasonable
prices. The first freight brought into
Wichita by tbe Ft. Scott & Wichita, was a
car load or flagging stone.
Sabina Sbufcldt, or Afton in this county,
writes tlie Fulton (111.) Journal, an amusing
account of a day's shopping by heiself and
husband, Lijab, in Wichita during tbe late
rainy spell, and how they failed to getback
home where they bad left Patty, for whom
she bad bought a new styled poke bonnet,
aud the chickens, pigs and setting hens.
Sabina winds up the account with some
verses of which the following is a fair sam
ple: "The night was dark, the wind did moan,
I thought of Patty all alone,
Poor girl, her heart was almost broke
Until she saw her lovely poke."
Mr. George M. King, of the Eagle force,
was united by marriage to Miss Bessie B.
Stirling, at Parsons, last Thursday, June
28th. Tbe ceremony took place at the res
idence of tbe bride's uncle, A. O. Brown,
and was performed by Elder King, the
groom's father, assisted by Iter. Chaffee, of
Parsons. George found and wooed Bessie
in the years when his father was sUtioned
at Parsons, and having proved true to their
earlier plighted faith, we predict for them
a long and happy life or mutual trust and
forbearance. The new made husband and
wife arrived in Wichita Saturday and wlU
go to house-keeping immediately ; in me
meantime George has gone back to bis
"case" cheerful and happy enough.
"Xatnr, la seal for human amity.

pointment of county commissioner to A.
W. Olivrr, tn place of J. M. Steele, resign

Probably tbe appointment of no business
man In city could bare given such universal
satisfaction. Mr. Oliver Is tbe bead oftbe
City Mills and Elevator firm, and president
of tbe board of trade. He Is a clear-beaded
and wide-awake business man of strictly
business methods and Is not easily misled.
Not only tbe interests of bis constituents In

oftbe entire county, will be faithfully look

that always studies first to know what bis

objected to accepting the place, but his con

familiarize himself with the business of tbe
county will not be wasted.

STATISTICS OF SEDGWICK COUNTY FARMS.
Tbe Eagle's table of last week showing
the aggregate acreage, assessed valuation
and population, by townships, omitted
several items of interest. We now give
some grand totals In a shape that will be
readily understood, and In which shape
they will be more bandy for reference, for
the county as a whole. This table shows
that Sedgwick county stands far in advance
of many agricultural counties in the older
States in number of acres under cultiva
tion, and that, if it is notalready, it soon
will be the leading county of Kansas :
