Somo timo ago Jim Creighton and his

having been connected with burglars in

his present action gives strong
color to this view of tho matter, but what
about the other bailees, aro they in the

in any way with thieves. Is it possiblo that

up and demand an investigation of this mat

THE THIEF BROUGHT BACK
Sheriff Fisher arrived home yesUrday
morning from Chicago with his prisoner,
John Cobs, who it is alleged got away with
$600 at the Star laundry in this city some
time ago. He declares that he didn't get
$600, only $o55 and three Canadian quar
ters, and Is quite indignant at being over
charged in the matter. The sheriff left an
other man in charge of him a while in To
peka and he got away and hid in a shock of
corn, where he was finally caught by the
sheriff. Mr. Fisher says he got him by the
leg in tho corn shock and felt pretty good
Ho thinks the fellow's brother, who lives
in Chicago, has most of the money.

guilty, though he probably will kick on the
exact amount, but then that wont make
much difference. John says he would like

THIEVES MUST CO.
In its city edition the Eaolk yesterday
morning set forth a matter touching a very
vital Interest of the city, involving no less
than tbi construction of the Wichita & Col
orado railway. As no practical way could
be seen out of the dllBcalty, a meeting of
business men was not only suggested bat
urged. The trouble in a nut-shell was and
Is that the right of war had been estimated
at very materially less figures than thoso re
turned by the condemning board. The es
timate upon which the contract for building
the road.was based on a condemnation made
but a few months since over practically the
same route. The figures were to startlingly
at variance with the best judgment of those
concerned, and with the old condemnation,
that the construction company refused to go
on with the work. A meeting was held
which, though not so largely attended, was
a representative one. Two ways were sug-
cested out of the dilemma. One was lor a
committee to confer with the owners of the
property already condemned, and the other
the raising of a subscription for a bridge
at the upper end of tho city
near the fair grounds, which would
enable the road to go out over
a different lime on one which it is said tho
right of way would bo largely donated. Mr.
Skinner, the chairman of the meeting, ap
pointed CapL White, CapL Smyth, P. V.
Healey, A. K. Dodge and G. G. Mathews as
the first cnnmittee, and N. A English, W.
A, Thomas, Geo. Rouse, Geo. B. Black
welder and Mayor Aldrlch as the latter com
mittee. Both committees were requested to
go to work Immediately and to rep' -t
the earliest possible hour. It was s led
that the raising of ten thousand dollars (or
a bridge at the upper end cf the city was
thought to be cquivolent to a reduction of
fifty per cent on the right of way as return
ed for tho first six miles. That is, cither
would enable the Wichita men who repre
sent the line, to make good their promise of
an average of $800 per mile as above referr
ed to, and which as we stated, was based on
a previous condemnation mari but a few
months since. Both committees went earn
estly to work. The one on the right of
way succeeded in getting only a reduction
of about two thousand dollars on the figures
returned by the condemnation board or on
the $17,000 awarded for the first six miles.
The other committee raised in two hours
$14,000 and from very few men. Mr. Daisy
who accompanied the committee, said in
two hours more it could have been doubled
by large property holders at the north end.

men who subscribed, and tho amounts:

Marshal J m Cairns Talks From the Shoulder.
An F IOLK reporter met Marshal Cairns
yestcsday, who, in answer to a question
said: "Yes, I saw your article in the Eaole
yesterday in reference to bailing that burg
lar out of jail, an J I guess you are onto the
right racket, Ever since these fellows were
caught at the Tremont, the burglars bare
all been away from tbe city, but now they
are returning and will all be here in a day or
two, when they expect to organize a series of
jobs in all of the towns ior forty or fifty
miles around. This man, who was released
on bail, was needed to do work and he had
to be released. Of course the gang will put
up the bail when he skips out. I don't
think John Sullard is connected with the
gang, but since he has been busted up in
his business he has a sort of hatred of law
and was, unsuspectingly, led into going this
fellow s bail.
"It has been a hard job to bag
any of these fellows with tho chances wo
have, but I have been perfecting a plan by
which I can rake somo of them in it tbey at
tempt any job here. I am onto nearly all
of them except when a new crowd comes in,
which is often, but the trouble is to catch
any of them in tbe act, to fasten tbi guilt
upon them. Tbey seem to have two or
three headquarters, or bases of operation; I
don't mean two in this city, but t ro or
three in the state, and they change off gangs
when they become too well known; so tbat
it is not so easy as one might suspect to
catch them; but I promise you that things
are so fixed that if they do any work here
there will be lively timer. It would be well
for you to warn the surrounding towns to be
on tbe lookout, for the gang is gathering
here to make arrangements for a raid. I am
getting things in tbape so tbat I can make it
so hot for some of them tbat this city will
be rid of their presence."
. Tbe reporter during tbe day learned from
a private source that a detective has follow
ed some of the gang here and will follow
them until they aro caught to rights. The
gentleman who contributed this informa
tion requested tbe reporter not to "give it
away," but tbe scribe is a dreadful poor
band at keeping secrets when the people are
thirsting for news.

At the meeting yesterday afternoon one
thing was made very clear, and that was
that a very large majority were very en
thusiastically In favor of the uper end
bridge proposition for tbe shops on this
sido. Wo thought that the raising of ten
thousands dollars almost a hopeless task.
but fourteen thousand was raised inside of
two hours for the up town proposition.
During tbe whole forenoon yesterday
people couldn't bo hired to talk anything
but railroad. Tbe excitement ran as high
as when tbe presidential election returns
were coming in. Every one bad a plan to
suggest and there is but little doubt tbat if
a petition had been circulated then $20,000
could be raised in a very short time to have
tbe road begin work, let the route be in any
possible direction as far as getting outside
the city was concerned. The reason the at
tendance was not great at the meeting in tbe
afternoon -was a suflcient notice was not
given. Probably not One-halt of the people

We must admit, and frankly, that we are
opposed to anything like a sectional or re
taliatory fight. We want to see the road go
from West Wichita, or the Fifth ward,
where tbe company desire to go from. Wo
want to see the machine shops, tho packing
houses, and the cattle yards, etc., etc, on
the west side of tho river where
they naturally belong, and we sincerely hope
tbat the people of that ward and that ths
property holders of Delano township, who
were called upon for no aid, will see it to
their interest to take hold of the matter in
such a way as to get tho necessary reduc
tion, and that speedily immediately. Of
course we can not urge, or even suggest,
that men who are willing to subscribe for
one scheme should also subscribe for the
other. We only appreciate most keenly the
value of time and the possibility of render
ing null the hard, perplexing work of many
Wichita has never failed in the past, and
she surely will not fail in this instance,
where the prize is within such easy grasp.
It is but proper to say tbat Chief Engineer
Woods will put on his corps to-day to test
the feasibility of running out from tho north
end of the town instead of from tbe Fifth
ward. The line will be run from the upper

A Mystery UnvdleJ.
For the past two years a certain
business man who styles himself "Post the
Pawnbroker," has been getting diamonds,
watches, jewelry, etc., and selling them for
a mere song, as it were. Ho has sold fine
solid gold Howard watches for seventy-five
dollars tbat tbe jewelers say were worth one
hundred and seventy-five dollars. He has
even been known, when business was a lit
tle dull, to sell solid gold watches, and in
fact, every thirg in tbe Jewelry line, for
about one-half its actual value and some
times even leu than tbat, and the strangest
part of it all is, ha never runs out of goods.
Large boxes filled with goods come to him
by express. Where they come from no one
knows save himself, and no one so far has
been able to find out bow he gets so many
good goods, so tbat be can sell tbcm tor so
much less than they are worth. It has puz
zled other dealers in jewelry so much that
some have gone so far as to say that they
believed he did not get them honestly. But
the writer of this article, being a warm
friend of Mr. Post, and knowing him to be
a man of honcr, resolved to interview bim,
which fa did, and interrogated him as fol
lows! "Mr. Post, you have been selling watches,
diamonds and jewelry for the last two years
here in Wichita, all of which have proven
to be first-class goods and always just as you
represent them; you have been selling these
goods so very low and giving such wonder
ful good bargains that it has excited the sus
picion of some. And there are many re
marks and suggestions made in regard to
how you get so many of these goods, and get
them so you can sell tbem for so much less
than they are worth. People will not be
lieve that you get them all 'pawned to you
"Well, sir, you may say to my inquiring
friends, if you please, that I have a great
many watches, diamonds, etc., pawned and
(old to me right here in Wichita; but not
onehalf assnany asIselL Most of my sec
ond hand watches and diamonds, and in fact
my beat bargains, come from my brother
pawnbroker's establishment (which is a very
large one) in New York. Then I am also
enabled to buy new goods at a great reduc
tion through another brother in the east en
gaged in the manufacturing business.'
"Well, Mr. Post, why have you not made
this known to the people of Wichita be
fore?" "Just simply because such talk is looked
upon ky the majority of the people as an
advertising dodge, and I think the best way
to advertise is to let people know jurt what
I hare in as plain a way as possible. Then
give then as good, bargains at I advertise,
and 1 fad confdeat or sacceu.'' The Arrow,-

LSITEMED BV TUB ANCIENTS.
Ton ancieuU highly esteemed the sunlight
at rouluciVa to hoalc'j It i related by
Plutarch that when He youthicl Alexander
ititad Diogenes at Corinth ha found the
'u'lioiii philosopher lytn; tranquilly in th
-tin Th) warrior kindly saluted bim and
a kot iC he could do anything for him.
'Only stand a little out ot my sunshine,"
replied Diigeoei. Diogenes was then three
fCot,s and ton, and age made the sunshine
ilouUr dear to him. According to Pliny, it
wt a comuiou practice in Greece for old
mj to recruit their ensrgiei both mental
and physical, by exposing themselves nakel
in tlw sun. llippacratei racoxnuttl
cognlxai the reviving effocts uf warmth
and sunlight on tbo agaJ by saying, "Oil
man ara double tbeir aje in winter and
youugjr in summer."
The old Roniam osteamed the sunshine.
Pliny, th elder, employed his leisure hours
aftor dinner in summer lying in tbe Sun.
Pliny, tbe younger, at both his country
oat, had gardens thickly borderei with
holges, when he coull walk completely
nu lo, Inu exposing nls wuola body to tn
blaza of tbe sun. Love of suushlne was a
marked trait cf the old Romans, Nearly
all the dwellings were prnvidal on tbe roofs
or toutbera waits with balconies or ter
race', wiiere tho occupant, sitting or re
clining could sun themselves all they
w ioX Such u of the sunshlna is con
ducive to the preservation of ths health.
ESSENTIAL TO DEVELOPMENT.
Tbo value of light in tbo development ot
animal organisms was shown by oxperi
u.onti of Dr. W. F. Edwards, made many
years ago in Franco. Ha found that frogs'
e(s placed in tho dark were preventel
from developing, and that a tad polo kept in
a dark place, although it attained a largo
size, did not change its form. Dr. Hammond
c.-ufirtmd thii result, as he found that while
kapt in darkness tho transformation of ths
tadpolo was indsCnltely postponed, but
when brought to tbo light it becam
a frog in a few day. Something of the
sauia effect is produced upon the human
ra-e when deprive! of sunlight. Dr.
Forbes Window says: "Tbe total exclusion
of tbe sun's beams induces an impoverished
date ot tbe blood, muscular debility, drop
ileal effusion, softening ot the bonos, nerv
out excitability, irritability of tbe heart,
Ixi of appetite, consuupticn, physical de
formity, stunted growth, mental impair
ment, premature old ae. The offspring ot
thoje so unhappily trainad ara often de
formed, weak, and puny, and are disposed
to scrofuloui affections,"
Thus it will ba sean that a full supply ot
'Utilight is needed to secure full develop
nvut ot our physical organization. An
other writsr says: "Care should bo token
loth in health anl dUsa-e to imuro snffl
oio.it amount of light, an 1 it is impossible to
rear well-foriueJ, strong, and robust chil
dren unls attention is paid to this requira
mont. Sun-baths or apartment in which
tbe solar rajs can fall upon the nakel body,
ara highly advantageoui to health, and
room for this purpose could easily be con
structel in most of our city houses. Lat m
ttiea.tome the dying words nf Goethe,
have "more light."'
SUNLIGHT CCBES DI.-EASE.
A meant English writer says: "Toe di
rect rays ot the sun are great remedial and
preventative agents hi certain diseases, such
ai tcrofala, phthbi, rickets eta" Dr.
Warren says: "Seclusion fromsunsbina is
oajottho mlstortunat of our civilizad life.

Inured nu them, which soon fills the room
with steam. When all is ready the bathers
