Mr. X. M. Southwlck, who came ia from
Garden Plain yesterday morning, gavo us
the particulars of the burning of Itatlifl's
flouring mill at that place which occurred
at 1 o'clock yesterday morning. Inaveiy
few minutes after the flames wero discov
ered tho mill -was in ruins. The mill had
one run of stones and two sets of new pro
cess rolis, and with exception of the boiler
is a total loss together with a considerable
ntnount of wheat, the total loss being esti
mated at $14,000, on which there is reported
to be an insurance of $5,000. The capacity
of the mills was about fifty barrels of flour
per day and tho people of Garden Plain aro
very much put out by the unfortunate fire
to say nothing of the effects of tbo disaster
to the owner.
WICHITA AND FT. SMITH.
A Visit From General Maca-jer Wood.
General Manager Wood, of the A rkansas
Valley Itailroad company, better known as
the Ft. Smith, Little Bock and Arkansas
City line, arrived in Wichita night before
lasL Yesterday in company with cx-Coun-ty
Treasurer John Tucker he went down to
Wellington. After their return Manager
Wood made us quite a call during which the
railroad propositions of the Eagle were
thoroughly discussed, ho having been a care
ful reader of its colums since last spring.
He is convinced that Wichita has a grand fu
ture before her not only as a commercial city
but ns a beef and pork packing point, and
as a grain market with a choice between
northern and southern markets and north
crn and southern raiiwav outlets. As to the
extension of a railway down this valley to
the Mississippi river he is better posted than
any man with whom we ever talked, and it
is not surprising that be should be when it
is remembered that he has made this pro
posed link to a trans-continental road the
ttudy of years. He came here to antagonize
no local or railway interests, hut he believes
that Che limo has come for the settling of the
Indian Territory question by opening iL
Tho interests of Kansas and the states
of tho lower 3Iissisippi v alley demand that
this bar should bo let down and he hoped
congress w ould so see it and so act. We
told him that the Eagle had opposed the
Boomer scheme for the rottenness at its bot
tom and the opening of the Territory until
southwestern Kansas, which is a finer and
better country, should be settled, but that
now Wing accomplished we were ready to
urge upon our delegation or congress the
desirability of immediate action. Mr. Wood
in spcr.king of their railway interests said
his people had the means provided and were
anxious to construct, independently, or in
conjunction with a friendly line, a road
through the Territory, along tho great
Arkansas i alley, just as soon as
the necessary right of way could be had
from congress. As to tho traffic of such a
m line, its connections, eastern termini, sea
boards, etc., more was said than can be
.crowded into the space of a brief article,
lie is delighted with Wichita and the evi
dences of push which he meets on all sides,
and he has no fears that such a people
will over deep on their rights. Before the
talk was ended we assured him that Wichita
was wide-awake to tho advantages of a
Mississippi ri cr outlet, that w o knew that
we were nearer tho great southern systems
and iLcir connections than is Kansas City,
and tliat when tho time came his company
could depend upon harmonious and effective
action upon the part of not only Wichita
liut of this entire section of the valley. Mr.
"Wood leaves lor St. Louis this morning.
A GRAND HUNTING PAKTY.
A party of Denver and Loadvillo men,
miners and capitalists, will arrive in this
city to make it headquarters, in October, for
a grand hunting and fishing time. Their

A partial eclipse of the moon was observed
at 1 o'clock this morning, the interviewing
planet passing across tho lower portion of
tho moon's disc from south to north. This

to all who observed it.

LADIES' BENEVOLENT HOME.
The directors held a meeting on Wednes
day afternoon and part of the time was oc
mnied in ammendine the constitution. Tho
following clause was adopted as one of the
articles: "Xo denominational preierenccr,
or sectarian relations shall be permitted to
govern any of the acts or operations of this
society, either in elections or benefactions."
A visiting committee was appointed
whose duty it shall bo to visit tho homo

subjecL The cold facts about Wichita and
Sedgwick county when put in tho plainest
Saxon, sounds no doubt in the ears of less
favored communities like the recital of
some wonderful dream. If tho Wellington
Press man or the Winfield Courier man and
several others that wo wot of, lived in
Wichita and should attempt to extol in the
same extravagant degree orainaruy em

of this city and county, the state would give
them a homo in ono of her asylums without
waiting tho formality of a jury's verdict
touching their sanity.
Hor.. D. A. Hunter, a member of the legis
lature from Lyon county, is visiting the
editor or the Eagle and family. Mr. n. is
a farmer and stook raiser, more particularly
the latter. He settled in Lyon county in
1S0S, preempting his home placcatatimo
when Emporia had but a dozen or so people
and when all west of that point was a vast
buffalo range. He comes down to verify
all that he has heard and read of Wichita
and Sedgwick county. In the fall of 1853,
ho helped make up a party of several who
came down from the eastern portion of the
state for a buflalo hunt. Tho party went
into camp on the Cow-kin, six miles west cf
tho junction of the two Arkansas rivers
where they bagged a big lot of game. Mr.
H. killed a buffalo standing on the river just
above where the big bridge spans the stream.
He says ho expected to find a good solid
town or city here, standing out on tho open
plain, but instead he finds a city buried ia a
ln.t of trees that look to bo fifty years old
to which fact ho finds impossible to reconcile
OUTSIDE THE CITY.
The Eagle's call for police protection ai
the union depot, which was instigated by
the high-handed operations of the gang who
infest that neighborhood, created quite a
furor on the streets yesterday morning and
the question was discussed by all classes.
The city authorities claim that even if Gil
bert's addition is within the corporation, the
union depot is not, becauso there is a strip
180 feet wide extending along the Santa Fe
track, lying between Dr. Burleigh's pro
perty and the railroad.
The railroad company will soon find it
necessary to protect their patrons against
garoters and highwaymen, and if their de
pot is outside the corporation they should
move it into the city or furnish protection
in the country to the patrons of the road.
The community are worked up to a high
pitch of excitement in consequence of the late
atrocities perpetrated in that locality and are
demanding that something bo done to pre
vent a repetition of such deeds as havo been
committed there the past two or three
REBUILDING A MILL.
An Eagle reporter was attracted to Mr.
V. E. Appleby's planning mill on Wichita
street yesterday morning, by seeing a lot of
mechanics tearing it don. The scribe
sought Mr. Appleby and asked the cause of
the racket "We are going to remodel and
rebuild the whole mill from bottom to top
and make it two-stories high," said Mr. Ap
pleby. "1 ha, e bought a complete set of
new machinery throughout, and when I am
through with it ou will see a complete new
mill with the best modern machinery and
with enough room to work from forty to
fifty hands. I will then be in a position to
compete w ith any mill in Kansas City. The
building will be fifty feet square and two-
stories high. The shaving room will be
fitted up in the best stjlc. I will put in a
brick engine and boiler room and a new en
gine and boiler. I have also bought a very
heavy stock of finishing lumber, suitable for
all purposes and can fill all orders on short
notice. In a word it will be the best plan
ning mill in the state.
NEW STREET CARS.
A reporter visited the street car barn yes
terday afternoon and inspected the two new
cars lust received. No finer cars can bo
found in any city. They arc far superior to
any in the state. They were built by the
Brownell & Wight car company of St.
Louis, They are the same size as tho last
two received before these and have all the
modern improvements the others had with
many new features. They have onlyfivo
windows against six in tho others, hut they
are much larger. The seats arc upholstered
with carpet. There is an elegant largo
globe lamp in the center of each
that will compare with tho lamp
in a parlor car. In the right-hand
corner on each end is a lamp on tho inside
with a reflector on tho outside. They havo
a new and improcd style of fare box. They
are numbered 9 and 10 and lettered on the
sides, "Douglas Avenue and Union Depot."
They were put on the track for tho train last
e ening and were greatly admired by all
who saw them. Major Powell is entitled to
the highest commendation for his enterprise,
and our people will thank him for providing
such handsome and comfortable cars for

Saeatooa, I Y., Sept. 23. Tho second
day of tho New York Republican conven

night there were many conference commit
tees of resolutions heard, ihocnaplara ot
tho senate, Rev. Dr. S. V. Leech, urged tho
committee to take a square ana ooia nana
on the temperance question and recom
mended a constitutional amendment regula

of the committee favored tho proposition,
but tho great majority were opposed to tho
formulation of any temperance plank.

They strolled into the hall very slowly, and

At tho close of Mr. Healy's address, the

form. When the clause was read relating
to the preference of offieo to bo given to ox
soldiers. Corporal Tanner, of Brooklyn, in
quired if that meant if a soldier passed an
examination that proved his competency ho
ilmnld ln annointed even if a colleco Grad

figure! "It does, quickly rejoined lOl.
Bliss, "if a soldier passed at 80 and a dude
stands at 100, the soldier gets tho place."
Great applauso and laughter. Tho plat
lorm was unanimously adopted.
Davenport had been nominated for gov
ernor, and his nomination was mado unani
mous amid great chc- ing. The whole con
vention then yelled Car" for second place.
Gen. Carr was quickly nominated for lieu
tenant governor by acclamation; Anson S.
Wood was nominated for secretary of state
and James W. Wadsworth lor comptroller.
Tho platform adopted by tbo Republican
stato convention is as follows:
The Republican party of Jfcw York in
ronvention assembled declares, first, that tho
provision of the existing civil service laws of
me stale anu naiioa suuuiu uv Bkrcugtiicui'u
and extended to all grades of public service
to which tbey may oo applicable, so that a
selection of administrative officers shall, so
far as possible, be govcrnen by capacity and
fitness. We insist upon tho enforcement of
these laws by public officers, not only in let
ter but in spinL Honorably discharged
soldiers and sailors, who are shown by com
petitive examination to possess tho neces
sary requirements, should bo given the
preference in certification and appointment.
Second That the laws affecting the gov
ernment of cities should bo simplified so as
to enable tho people to fix the responsibility
with case and certainty.
Third That we demand the passage of
the act putting an end to the enlargement
of the stock of money formed of silver, or
based on a silver maintenance of tho gold
standard of the purity with gold, of all
kinds of money in use, as essential to the
prosperity of a country and tho restoration
of silver to its former position as good
Fourth That wo emphasize the demand
of tho last national Republican convention
that tho imposition of duties on foreign im
ports shall be made, not lor revenue only,
but that in raisinir the reauisite revenues for
tho government, such duties hall be levied
as to afford security to our di
versified industries and protection to
our interests ana lauor, 10 too
end that active and intelligent labor,
as well as capital, may havo itsjust reward,
and the laboring man his full share in tho
national prosperity. Persistent threats to
overthrow this policy add to the present
trouble of trade and the paralysis of in
dustry. Until tho full eflect of tho revision
of 18b3 can be fairly estimated, tho agita
tion of tho tariff law is a gratuitous assault
on tho wages of labor in all branches of
production. All interests cf traffic are op
posed to tho introduction of any system of
free trade, the enevitablo effect of which
would be to destroy our mills and factories
and to carry down American wages to the
standard of the old world.
Tho fifth resolution, while it endorses tho
dvinir sentiments of Gon. Grant, flies the
bloody shirt, and talks gibly about insisting
onpolitical rights in the south, etc.
The sixth resolution speaks with reference
to the contract labor system in competition
with free labor.
The seventh, that the letinz of contracts
for state work should not bo awarded U any
person or corporations discriminating
against any class or organization of labor
Eiffhth We recommend tho lecialation of
granting benefit ot public schools to
all children of tho state; such control of
factory employment as that we surround
the women employed herein with the neces
sary safeguards for their physical, mental
and moral well being.
Ninth That stringent laws should bo
passed for the improvement of tho sanitary
conditions of the homes of working mn in
Tenth That we demand strict enforce
ment by national government of a law pro-
inDiling wo importation oi contract laoor.
Eleventh That we recommend legisla
tion to foster the agricultural and dairy in
terests of the state and such as will prevent
adulteration of articles of food.
Twelfth That we favor the continuance
of the railroad commission upon a non-par
Thirteenth That in the interest of cheap
transportation for the country, and reduced
taxation for tho people of th'is state, wo de
clare in favor of asking tbo national govern
ment to assist in the. improvement of locks
and deepening of the channel in tho Erie
canal understate control.
Fourteenth That improvement in tho
system of taxation commenced by the recent
Republican legislature, under which largo
sums have been collected from sources which
previously escaped taxation, should be per
fected and extended so that the burden may
fall equally upon all classes of property.
Fifteenth We condemn the bjpoensy of
the Democratic party in pledging itself be
fore the election to ciul service reform, and
after the election denouncing, through its
press and leaders, the civil service act as un
constitutional, while the national adminis

A Message of General Grant Made
Neooa, III., Sept. 23. The reunion of tho
veterans of General Grant's old regiment,
tbe 21st Illinois Veterans, began here last
night with a primary session, at which Col.
Fred. Grant was present, and ho was ac
corded a very hearty reception. In response
to requests for a speech, the colonel said:
"I do not intend to make you a speech,
for I havo not been trained as a public
talker. I have here a document I would
like to read to you. It is a line written by
my father upon matters pertaining to the
war, and has never before been made pub
lic As ho entered into the war w ith your
regiment first, and as he always spoke of
you with affectionate interest, it is fitting
that you should be the first to hear his part
ing words. This is what he wrote upon tho
pages 1 hold here: "I feel that wo are on
the eve of a new era, where there is to be
great harmony between the federals and con
federates. I cannot stay to be a living wit
ness to tho correctness of this prophecy but
I feel it is to be so. The universally kind
feeling expressed for mo at times when it
was supposed that each day would prove
my last, seems to bo a beginning of tho an
swers to 'Let us have peace.' The expres
sion of these kindly feelings wero not re
stricted to a section of country nor to a di
vision of people. They came from individ
ual citizens of all nationalities and from all
denominations Protestant, Catholic and
Jew; from various societies of tho land
scientific, educational, religious and oth
erwise. Politics did not enter into the mat
ter at all. I am not egotistical enough to
suppose that all this significance should bo
given this matter because I was the object of
it; but the war between tho states was a
vprv hloodr and a verv eostlv war. Ono
sido or tho other had to yield principles
dearer than life before it could bo brought
to an end. I commanded tho whole of tho
n3ghty hosts engaged on tbo victorious side,
