The Motors for the Street Railway Com
pany on a Slow Freight Work
on the System 1'rogres.s
Mr. J. O. Davidson, as president of the
Wichita Electric Railway company, re
ceived a message yesterday stating that it
would be impossible to ship any of the
motors for cars before the 23d inst. The
motors are being made near Boston and,
according to the rule, it will take two or
three weeks for them to arrive, which will
delay the service longer than nad been an
ticipated. Some weeks ago the order for
twenty motors was placed and, according
to the agreement, half of them were to be
delivered this month, five before the mid
dle of the month. This was done in order
to be able to equip cars for the service as
fast as the - track and line completed,
which would accommodate the public and
at the same time accommodate the com
pany with a number of interesting nickles.
1 he outlook for rushing the work along all
the extensions, as a result, is not
so favorable. And it is thought not good
policy to distrub the present service until
something else better can be substituted
in a short time.
The two additional boilers to be Used at
the power station arrived yesterdaj'. Some
of the electric machinery has also arrived
and no delay is expected to be forced from
plant machinery. The brick work on the
power station building was completed yes
terday and roofing will commence today.
The work on the station is going along
nicely and it will be completed before the
motors for the cars arrive.
The work on the North Main street and
Topeka avenue north is practically com

a day or two and evervthing made
fready for service as far as track is concern
ed, but the absence of cars makes rather a
Work on the East Douglas extension
commences today and on Main street from
Lewis to Lincoln the track is completed.
The most noticable trouble at nresent
comes from the condition of Main and
Douglas owing to the improvements being
made by the company and also paving im
provements. It is thought North Main
will receive finishing touches within a few
days as work commenced yesterday at
Douglas avenue paving the track space.
It can not be rushed along rapidly enough
to complete the street in one day, but will
be completed in a number of days and
the business men on the street are
hoping for the work to be completed as
soon as possible as they have suffered from
the di.sadvant.ages for many weeks, and in
fact, months. The railway company also
are quite anxious for the track space to bo
paved, as, while the work is being done it
will be impossible to run cars on the street.
As soon as the work is completed regular
service will be given to the north part of
the city, Fainnount and Riverside. Tho
inability to operate the cars over the street
not only inflicts an inconvenience on those
depending largely on tho service but is a
loss to the company of not less than 30 per
A member of the railway company being
questioned on the matter said that he did
not understand that the company would
be compelled to assist in building the
bridge and as to the donation feature the
company was expending several hundred
thousand dollars and just at present out of
the donation business. The company in
his judgment would fulfill an obligation
to the public by getting ready to give a
good service as early as possible and main
tain the same.
SEDGWICK COrXTV XOItMAr. INSTITUTE
The fourteenth annual session of the
Sedgwick County Normal institute will
convene in the Lewis academy July 2!th
and continue for four weeks.
Conductor Prof. J. M. Naylor, princi
ple of the Lewis academy.
Instructors II. "W. Charles, principle
Sedgwick Cityschools; J. C. South, City
high school, Wichita; R. S, Lawrence,
Emporia college; Miss Ivanoua Bryson,
City schools, Wichita.
For the past two years Sedgwick
county's institutes have been the largest
ever held in the state, and second to none
in the amount and quality of work accom
plished. The chief value of these institutes is in
giving teachers truer conceptions of the
purpose and principles of teaching, and
the nobility and importance of their call
ing. The instructors have been selected with
a viewto their special fittness for teaching
the branches assigned them. Their
high standing and recognized ability are
sufficient assurance that the work they
will do will justify every teacher in the
count" to attend. No time will be wasted.
The teacher should leave the institute
feeling that he has gained something; that
he is a bettor thinker and will be better
able to teach others to think; that the aims
and purposes of education are the highest
and noblest that can be conceived and that
he has a great and very important part to
perform in the matter.
At the demand of a very large number
of educators, the course of study for the
normal institutes has been revised. It
now deals more largely in professional
work and offers facilities for such work not
heretofore enjoyed. An attempt ha been
made to grade the course to suit the needs
of teachers of all grades of advancement
and experience. This feature promises to
le of great advantage to both instructors
The change in the course of study makes
physiology, requiring as it does abundant
illustration, one of the most interesting
studies of the course.
Primary teaching will be taken up prac
ically in nctunl class drill. As much of
kindergarten work as can be used profita
bly in our schools will also be given and
This is entirely a new feature, and here
tofore neglected, but which-it is hoped to
make useful to the whole body of teachers,
but especially to those yet new in the pro
fession. Another leading feature will be the pic
nics, social enterwunments and lectures.
Arrangements have been made with some
of the prominent educators of the state to
favor the institute with able addresses.
State Superintendent George W. Winans
has promised to address the institute upon
one of his popular themes and the mem
bers may expect a pretty plain talk on
The Humane society has issued a neat
little pamphlet containing the special acts
of the legislature under which it operates
and will prove of interest to the public
generally. The exact powers ami objects
of the society are not any too well under
stood, and often times very unreasonable
things are expected of the agent. The
pamphlet also give? the nnme of the offi
cers and committees and all necessary in
formation for filing complaints.
A complaint wa made to the agent yes
terday about a team tiutt had been allowed
to stand in the gutter for the best iart of
An investigation left no room for action
and brougutout the following facts show
ing the ineonsistancy of complainants in
many instances: The team belonged, to a
farmer who was so poor that he had to eat
a cold dinner himself and drink from the
public fountain. It ftood there while the
farmer was attending to his business in
the city and was not a bit more anxious to
get home than was the owner. They were
both accustomed to privation and it is
questionable which suffered the moat
physical discomfort during the day. Then
again the farmer did not keep a team as a
luxury but it was absolutely neces
sary to his business. The occurrence of
yesterday was one that might take place
perhaps once during the summer. The
complainant filed the information anony
mously and said the matter had come un
der his own observation. It is strange
that two other cases in the same block did
not come under his observation as well.
These were buggy horses, one of which had
been hitched to a lamp post since a few
minutes past seven a. m., and it was
learned definitely that the other was left
stauding there before the farm team had
arrived in the city. The farmer started
for home about four o'clock and the two
buggies were still standing there. These
facts were not learned in time to enable
the agent to take any action in the matter.
It would not lie a bad plan if complainants
would use a little discrimination in such
cases. A farmer is not likely to abuse his
team any more than ho is compelled to
and their abuse is rarely a matter of
neglect. It is the business man whose
mind is filled with business cares that will
shamefully neglect his horse.
Last evening at the Pettinger residence.
2o North Topeka avenue, Mr. J. H. Mc
Call and Mrs. Josie P. Stanley, nee Pet
tinger, were united in marriage. The
ceremony took place at half past eight, the
Rev. J. C. Post, officiating, in the presence
of a few intimate friends.
Mr. McCall is one of the leading busi
ness men of the city, being widely and
favorably known. The bride is one of
Wichita's leading society ladies, and the
happy couple has a host of friends to wish
them happiness and prosperity. At the
conclusion of the ceremony an elegant
wedding repast was served.
Mr. and Mrs. McCall will move immedi
ately into their new home, 241 North Mar

for their reception. Amongst the inany

THE IiAKIIElt AXI THE I'OCKETHOOIC.
Yesterday Mrs. F. B. Campbell, on leav
ing the Topeka avenue motor, forgot her
pocketbook, which was left lying on the
seat. A colored barber, noticing it, picked
it up and concluded to return it some time
next week. Tho motoneer also noticed
the transaction and reported it to Officer
Brewer, who thought the pocketbook
ought to be returned sooner. When he in
terviewed tiie barber on the subject he be
came indignant and asserted that it was a
matter strictly between himself and the
owner of the pocketbook. Of course tho
officer could not see the matter in that
light and took Mr. Barber up to the police
court. At this sudden turn in affairs he
felt that his dignity was terribly outraged.
Turnkey Antrim did as little violence to
the barber's dignity as possible but in
sisted upon having the pocketbook. With
out questioning Mr. Barber's intentions to
return the pocket book Officer Antrim
naturally concluded that it was the duty
of the police to hunt up and restore lost
property, and governed himself accord
ingly. Mr. Barber threatens to sue the
city for meddling in his affairs and will
also demand exemplary damages for the
violence done his dignity by said inter
ference. .Mrs. Oampoell received ner
pocketbook last night, which contained a
small amount of money and papers valua
ble to herself.

"Whereas, The commander of the uni

mander aI. W. Coulter from active service
in tlio Held to calm repose in tiie bivouac
of the dead,
Keolved, That Garfield Post in the death
of comrade Coulter has sustained an irre
parable loss. Those who knew him best
admired his manly rectitude, his devotion
to duty and his amicable deportment,
whether in the post, or out of it. Well
may we mourn his demise, though we
knew that our los was his eternal gain.
As he loved to bedeck the graves of sleep

in this respect . 'is well as in the evempliti
cntion of the throe cardinal principles of
trrand army of which he was a noble expo
nent. Resolved, That thee resolutions be
spread upon the minutes of the post and
the same be published in the Daily Eagle.
I'pon the adoption of the above resolu
tions atfecting speeches were made by
Comrade-s Woodcock, Stewart, Wallace
and Harmon, testifying to the worth of
Comrade Conker as a citizen and as a
member of the grand army. In the nine

A member of thecouncilstated 3esterdny
that every effort possible would be made
to get the street railway comp ny to pay
one-third of the cost of the Douglas
avenue iron bridge across Chisholm creek.
He did not know whether it would be pos
sible to force the company to do it or not
and in the absence of any favorable law lie
might expect a donation on the part of the
company to that extent calling for about
S1..YX). Should the company in any event
fail to respond with that amount the city
would in all probability be compelled to go
ahead with the work. The present bridge
had been pronounced dangerous ami likely
to breali dowu and the result wouhl ha a
damage suit and loss recovered possibly
amounting to more than the cost of the
WICHITA ALL RIGHT.
Captain Geo. Hunt, attorney general for
the state of Illinois arrived yesterday, and
at Hotel Metropole last evenins said that
he would possibly remain here two or three
days. While having some business to at
tend to here, he was also glad of an oppor
tunity to see Wichita arid, in a measure,
become acquainted with the great south
west. He had noticed the wonderful
amount of improvements being made
alone the streets and everything; had the
appearance of a lively city. He added that
it had become understood in his section
that Wichita was going ahead commer
cially, and from a business standpoint, j
equal to the hopes of her frieods, and
enough to wia the admiration of her
ROUTE QUESTION DECIDED.
The Garfield Post Leaves for Boston Over the
Santa Ke Trip Through Canada.
The Garfield Post at its meeting held last
evening, discussed at length the route
question connected with the trip to the
national encampment at Boston, held in
August next. A resolution was presented
to take the Santa Fe to Chicago, the Grand
Trunk to Portland, Me,, thence by steamer
to Boston. The resolution passed unani
mously. It is not known as yet how
many will make the trip but it is thought
there will quite a number. It is also
thought that a number of the posts from
the surroundings towns will join the Gar
field in the trip and the demand from this
point will call for a special train starting
at Wichita over the Santa Fe.
So far nothing definite has been reported
concerning rates. The round trip at pres
ent appears to be about 30, or one cent
per mile, but it is claimed by some of
the railroad men that that rate is likely to
be reduced"and the result Income quite in
teresting to the traveling public As es
timated at present the delegation will
leave here on the Tth of August and it will
take four or five days to reach Boston. The
route taken, not taking into consideration
the short time in which to reach Boston,
but including as much delightful scenery
as possible and as many interesting points.
Mr. A. H. Beed brought to the board of
trade rooms yesterday a fine specimen of
corn grown by William Thompson just
north of town. It is from an hundred acre
field all of which is as promising as the
specimen indicates. The stalks are not as
large as last year but there are more ears
and all well developed so that the yield
will be excellent even without more rain.
Reports of the gentlemen present at the
board of trade rooms give assurance that
there are Krge sections that received fine
rains recently in tho vicinity of Goddard
and Sedgwick City and also southeast of
the city. Those who have been discour
aged by the sultry weather should remem
ber that the pavements make a vast differ
ence in the heat here as compared with
the country and that the county will show
up a fine corn crop this fall.
XO GOOD WITHOUT MOXEV.
A foot race between two local sports yes
terday resulted in one coming out second
best and, as a result, losing his Si"). There
was no professional robbing about it and,
hence, no one who had been trying to
make a steal had been done up, and could
cause any trouble and delay. The mouoy
was p;issed over and last evening tho sec
ond best fellow called to see his girl and
she was out walking with a friend of the
victor. The second best concluded that as
he had lost most of his money he had also
lost his winning ways, and, while he ner
vously tried to exist some of his acquaint
ances around the Manhattan last evening,
made things very unpleasant for him.
EOOKIXG rOli CATTLE LANDS.
Mr. Samuel Thornton, who lives near
Quiucy, 111., is in the city on a prospect
ing tour. It is his first visit to the state
and being a cattle man says ho comes to
Kansas to see if he can find good and cheap
grazing lands. He has read much of the
Kansas literature, and was interested
enough to make a personl ainvestigation.
Should he be satisfied he proposes to make
an investment in lands to be occupied by
two of his sons in the cattle business.
Mr. Thornton stated yesterday that he
was very much pleased with what he had
seen, but he would spend some days look
ing around southern Kansas before decid
ing whether or not he would invest.
CII1SIIOL3I C'KEKIC ARBITRATION.
The arbitration board to report the value
of the water power of Chisholm to the Hy
draulic milling company will meet
tomorrow to consider the evidence pre
sented and make a report. When the in
vestigation had been complated the board
allowed one day for each member to look
over the evidence and individually form an
estimate of what would be the proper con
sideration. It is thought the board will
have a report ready for the council at its
next meeting and possibly should the
time be considered an important feature
the council may be called in extra session
to receive the report.
HIS CONSCIENCE HURT HIM.
Yesterday Albert Ludloff, a mere lad,
was arrested for petit larceny, but was re
leased on account; of his early repentence.
It seems that during the preceding night
ho had rilled the pockets of his room mate
of $'2.00 and went down to the depot early
in the morning with the intention of leav
ing town. While waiting for the train his
conscience began to accuse him and he
concluded to return the money. While
endeavoring to find his victim he was ar
rested, but at the trial satisfied the court
of the truth of the for'soing statement
and was released on his promise to do

"The Flowers of the Forest" or the
"Gypsy Queen" was presented last night
at the Crawford Grand to a select
audience. It was nice and cool and the
audience did not get warmed up during
the entire evening. The curtain did not
ring up until nine o'clock to give every
body a chance to get comfortably seated.
Miss Chambers in the title role worked
very hard and Ishmael was as popular as
ever, Boquets were hurled on the stno
on several occasions when a favorite made
their appearance. The comedy of the
play was well taken care of and every
thing ran comparatively smooth. The
Gypsies all looked as beautiful as ideals.
This will positively be the last presenta
tion of "Flowers of the Forest" in this
ararrirri Nino Tinws to tho Sumo Man.
At Providence, R. I., Mrs. Stella Weston
has made application for a divorce from
her husband, Rev. Charles Weston, on the
ground that he is insane. Within the
space of eight years Mrs. Weston ha. been
married niuo times, each time to Weston.
According to the woman's statement her
hnsbund is a marriage maniac that is, he
insists every few months thut his wife shall
join with him in going tnrough a now cere
mony. They werellrst wedded fby a Method
ist clergyman at ilillbrook, Wis. Whila
abroad for the honeymoon ho insisted on
another marriage at St. Patrick's cathe
dral, Dublin. Returning to America a
third ceremony wa performed aboard ship
by a Presbyterian pastor. But all this did
not satisfy Mr. Weston that their union
was ecclesiastically perfect, and in due
course ho utilized tho services of Baptist,
Unitarian and Swcdcnborgian divines. The
ninth knot was tied by a spiritualist.
Then Mrs. Weston fled to her sister's
home in Providence She has had letters
from her husband telling her that ho has
ascertained boyend all poRsiblo doubt that
a Congregational marriage is tho only one
that has the indorsement of heaven, and
that if she will but consent to a wedding
in a Congregational church he will forgive
her flight and promise that this Ehall be
uositlvcly the last nuptials he will ask her
to participate in.
