A. H. OF T. A. AT WICHITA, 1891.
The Miitli .Annual Session at Chanute.
Mr. S. Y. Balch, who was the delegate
from the sub-order of Sedgwiclccounty to
the annual meeting of the A. II. of T. A.,
at Chanute, Kansas, and which order
holds its next annual session at Wichita,
furnishes us the following proceedings
from Secretary Postelthwait of that or
ganization: The ninth annual meeting of tho Grand
Order of the Anti-IIorse-Thief association
of Kansas and its jurisdictions met at In
dependence, Kan., in Payne's opera house,
at 10 o'c'ock, Oct. 22. About 2 0 delegates
were present, representing tho 131 sub
orders. Prayer was offered bv Bev. John Her
ron, who was followed by the Hon. "Wm.
Duncan, of Independance, who delivered
an address of welcome in behalf of the citi
zens of Independence and Montgomery
county. In his address he eulogized the
A. H. T. A.'s for the great benefit the or
ganization had been to the property owners
on the border line of the Indian territory,
where- horsestealing and ciime of all
kinds ran riot in the days before the or
ganization was effected in Kansas. The
civil authorities, owing to their necessarily
limited numbers, were unable to cope with
tho great number of criminals, but when
the A. IL T. A.'s were oreanized and hun
dreds of men in all direcrions began to act
in conjunction with the authorities, then
lifeaud property were more secure. In
fact horse and cattle stealing has
been almost entirely effaced. Ho said
that, before that before tho A. II. T. A
was orcanized horse stealing in broad day
light on the streets of Independence and al
towns bordering on the Indian Territory,
was a common occurrence and that it was
common for men to lose all their cattle or
horses in a single night, but now that is a
thing of the past. Mr. Duncan's address
was received with enthusiastic applause.
Mr. Duncan was followed by Capt. T C.
Xixon of tho Chanute Times, who spoke
to the vast amount of good done to the
people of Kansas by the orgrnization, of
the moral influence exerted, of the promo
tion of peace and safety and the suppress
ing of crime. He explained its workings
and aims and that it was in conjunction
with tho civil authorities und not by tak
ing the law into its own hands that the
work is carried on. H said that next to
the courts the A. II. T. A. stands in
tho hearts of the people. The forenoon
session was then adjourned to allow tho
delegates lo take part in the splendid
horse-back parade given by the sub-orders
of Montgomery county Tho parade of 300
mounted men, preceded by the r.lk City
hand and grand officers, nresented a snlen-
uiu iimifiumicc. x..ii;ii suu uruei in ji.uuhu
carried a handsomely-executed and aDpro
Tho balance of the session was devoted
to the revision of the constitution. Many
important changes were made and a new
office created, that of state or
ganizer. Believing that it is
import nt that the organization should be
spiead over our state and that its princi
ples and workings be made known over as
much territory as possible, this oflice be
came a necessity.
The following officers were elected for the
ensuing j ear: G M. Cotlmitn, president.

ICLTUHLICA-SS IN MORTON.
An enthusiastfc Republican meeting in
Morton township at Center school houso
was held Monday night. W. B. Moran,
one of the most earnest Republicans iu
Mortou township, called the meeting to
order and J. M. Teogno was made chair
man. P. A Rohrbaugh was introduced
to the meeting and spoke for nearly two
hours. Mr. Rohrbaugh arraigned the
Democratic party spverely, and scorching
criticisms on the political aspirants in the
Farmers' Alliance brouchUlown the house
time and again. He reviewed the causes
which led on to the hard times and
showed that the Alliance movement was
the outgrowth of these times that were the
necessary result of speculation and real
estate gambling into which wo fell and tho
short crops of the preceding years. If the
Republican party could have had their
way in Kansas during thee years they
would have had rain and that would have
saved them the necessity of educating tho
people against a great many visionary
schemes of the orators of the Alliance. He
discussed tho legislation of both state and
nation and said that thero never was a
congress or legislature which passed so
many laws iu tho interest ot the farmer
and tho lnborer in ono session as
the last congress and the last session
of the Kansas legislature. He referred to
tho fact that the Kansas legislature
had always been dominated by tho farmer,
that there never was a time when the
farmers were not in tho majority iu that
body, and of course, if they didn't get the
laws they wanted, they alone were to
blame. He said the political Alliance or
People's party was simply a Democratic
trick to elect Democrats to office, that the
People's county ticket was composed
entirely of Democrats, and he thought in
all fairness tho Republicans should have
had some representation on the ticket. He
compared the Republican candidates to
tho candidates on the other ticket, nnd
paid them a just tribute for the manner in
which most of them had performed the
duties in tho past. He referred to the Alli
ance procession in Wichita, said it was a
good showing, but one of tho floats in the
procession was enough to bring tho blush
of shame to the brow of any sober minded
man. Tho representation of one of tho
leading citizens of this state. Col. J. li.
Hallowell, by a jackass with a banner bear
ing the inscription. Prince Hal. A young
man in tho audience belonging to the Alli
ance interrupted tho speaker with ''That
was right." The speaker, lookiug nt the
young mnn, exclaimed: "You are a young
man, but if you were no older than that
boy back there, and lived until the fleet
ing years should crown your head with
silvery hairs, you would not Inc long
enough to see the solid yeomanrv of Amer
ica look with favor on such a sceue as that.
That is not the way that loyal hearts ro
ward the man who, liko CoL Hallowell,
earns the title of prince at the head of a
gallant charge, holding iu his hand a
sword red with the crimson stain of trea
son. No, sir, you will not live long
enough to witness the approval of that
scene by tho farmers of Kansas. It never
originated in the brain of a farmer. Some
disgruntled sorehead who never farmed
was the father of that representation and
a man, too, who never carried a sword or
musket into battle."
Mr. Rohrbaugh closed his speech amid
Morton township was the stronghold of
tho Alliance and both the rank and file of
both parties are becoming well acquainted
with the wholo scheme to force them like
cattle to support ranting alarmist office
seekers, and are leaving the political part
of the organization xnucn more rapidly
than they went into it.
ONE DAY FOR REST.
Mr. C. M. Hovey, Republican candidate
for state auditor, and W. S. Willcoxon of
Colby, reached the city yesterday morning

number of friends ntthe Metropole last
evening, was giving a number of his expe
riences. He is having some fun as well as

GENERAL CAX.DVTELT,. Tf JLb SPKAK.
General J. C. Caldwell has been secured
by the County Republican central com
mittee to speak here tomorrow evening.
It will be remembered that he spoke at
the Car works a few weeks ago, and the
meeting, owing to his forceful manner
and great ability in the speech-making
line, was one of the most enthusiastic ever
held in the county. Gen. Caldwell is re
ferred to as being one of the most accom
plished orators, not only in Kansas, bnt in
the entire West. Ho will have a large
crowd tomorrow night.
COXONEIi HALLO WEL1VS .MEETINGS.
Col. Hallowell spoke yesterday to over
two hundred voters at Mulvane. He was
given an ovation which for all round en
thusiasm has rarely ever been excelled at
any political meeting held in this part of
the state. His voice is much improved oyer
what it was one week ago. Ho spoke last
night at Sedgwick and was accompanied
by Senator Long, of Medicine Lodge. The
meeting was a dandy from point of num
bers and entnusiasm, and largely composed
of leading farmers in that section.
CoL Robert Mitchell, of Gueda Springs,
was in the city yesterday and said the
most successful political meeting in his
town was held Monday and addressed by
Col. Hallowell. There were a large num
ber of farmers present. He said that CoL
Hallowell made one of tho best speeches
he ever heard, and the result was that he
had made many votes there, bringing to
his support Democrats as well as others.
Col. Hallowell will pass through the
city this morning en route to Cheney
where he will speak this afternoon.

THE CATHOLIC FAIR.
It was only with difficulty that the fancy
drill of the Wichita Light Infantry could
be carried out, the crowd was so great; the
hall floor and gallery were crowded. The
boys in blue did themselves credit in their
maneuvres, and pleased the large audience
immensely. The voting interest last night
centered chiefly in the contest of tho two
little girls for a handsome doll baby. At
the close of the polls Mamie Mahan had
310 ballots to her credit and Lizzie Carey
190. In the contest for the tea gown Miss

Young Alexander Salvini will play a
special engagement of two nights only in
Wichita, at the Crawford Grand opera
house, on next Monday and Tuesday
nights. The play selected for this occasion
is a new melo-drama entitled, "A Child of
Naples," written especially for him by
Horace Townesand, in which character
"Cirillo" a Neapolitan lazzarous, affords
Mr. Salvini an opportunity to display his
versatility and dramatic force. The Bos
ton Evening Transcript says of his per
formance in this role:
"Of Mr. Salvim's Cirillo we cannot meas
ure terms of praise. As an exquisitely
faithful genre picture of an existent fasci
nating type of character it will stand with
any dramatic work of the generation. The
ritous fulnes of physical life, the coarse,
vived, auimal beauty, the instinct, con
stant, eloquent geticnla Hn to which the
words seem a superflous supplement; the
paesion of rage, burning, swift to smite,
awake at n word, a touch; the hot south
ern heart which melts passion to dog-like,
affectionate humility at a word from the
gentle girl, gratitude to whom is his only
religion; the laugh, flashing from nar
rowed eyes and glittering teeth at every
joke, the grimmer the better relished; the
aoolnte naivete of body and soul through
which untamed natural impulse speaks
as spontaneously as through any forest
animal all thee thinp, and more beyond
number, Mr. Salvini snows us in Cinllo.
As we have hinted, praise of Mr. Salvini's
work to those who have not seen it must
seem exaggerated; to those who have seen
it, inexpressive and inadqnate."

rHE MYSTERIOUS FUNERAL GUEST.
A Surrirlss for One "Who Wat Not Familiar
with the Dancer of Open Doors.
A young reporter who had come to New
York from a western town, and was not ac
customed to the ways of the metropolis,
was assigned, as his first piece of work, to
report the funeral of a wealthy but not ex
ceedingly prominent maa who lived up
town in a lavishly furnished house. He
found the house jammed to the doors with
people, and was unable, without making a
nuisance of himself, to make his way any
further into the crowd than the newel post
of the great mahogany stairway.
His editor had warned him of the neces
sity of gettinga large numberof the names
of those who were present, and of the
enormity of the crimo of having even one
of them incorrectly spelled. But here the
raw reporter was, hemmed in immovably
on all sides by people who looked horrified
if he ventured to address them. He asked
several of them for their names, but they
either refused to give them or failed to un
derstand what he wanted them for.
"These people can't amount to much,

would show a little more familiarity with

some person of seeming importance. He
Boon spied a distinguished looking man,
faultlessly dressed, with a military carriage
and of aristocratic appearance. He replied
to tho reporter's rather timid questions
courteously, gave the names of a number
of people of some importance whom he
could see from where he stood or had no
ticed entering the house. His patience
even outlasted the reporter's importunity,
and the latter decided that the man was a
trump of tho most thoroughgoing kind.
Finally tho reportersaid, "And your own
"Oh, never mind me," was tho reply.
"You don't want my name!"
This was a disappointment, and the re
porter's face showed it. I should like to
have it most of all," he replied.
"Well," said the man, "I'm J. B. Jenks,
of the Metropolitan police force."
The reporter was a little staggered, but
he thought to himself, "An inspector, I
dare sa3 or a captain at least," and added
aloud: "What title? Cap"
"No," said tho ofHcer, with a quiet
smile, "plain patrolman. I seo you're sur

look so much like a gentleman, eh?"
"Notatall," replied the repoiter quickly,

"No; no such luck!"
"Friend of the family?"

Great Charm of the Maine Woodi.
One decided advantage which this lake
country of New England possesses overtha
Adirondacks Is tb vastness of its solitude.
Its uncleared area is so extensive, its for
ests are still so unbroken by any highways,
save the streams and the rough tote roads
of the lumber crews, that this region can
not become populous with visitors. Though
many suniraerliLv (to coin a word to de
scribe us summer transients) now flit along
these streams, yet is not this wilderness
overswarmed with visitors. Even while
paddling down the streams one will meet
but few canoes, und many camp at night
with no neighbors in sight or sound.
Some future day tho rich bottom lands
along these streams may know cultivation,
but now t'uey are mostly left to the
grasses, the wild flowers and the deer.
When I firnt discovered for myself the de
lightful possibility of relapsing for a sea
son into this Indian like existence, about
twenty years ago, although it was then
late in the summer, I learned that only
two parties of "sports" (as we are called in
the native dialect) had crossed before me
the carry from Moosehcad into the Penob
scot waters, and not until the lest day of
nearly a fortnight's canoeing did pass a
boatman on the river. Rev. Newman

IIIn Live Sareil by a Rat.
A gentleman whose modesty prevents
our publishing his name and whose veracity
is unquestionable relates the following:
"I had been picking cotton in my field very
hard all the morning, and when dinner
time came I lay down in the gin house, and
must have dczed off to sleep, when all at
once I felt a sharp prick on the end of my
finger. I jinpl np and sw a largo rat
looking at me intently, and he kept rnn
n.ng backward and forward, but coming
back at the same place each time. I picked
up a nut and threw it so accurately that it
killed the rat. About that time I discov
ered some cotton on fire, which I believe
caused the strange actions of the rat, and
I believe that I, as well as the gin house,
would have been burned had it not been
for the timely bite of the rat." Gordon
"It's too fast; altogether too fast," said
the engineer; "tevea miles in eight min
utes is very fast," and he hit the arm rest
a real hard hit. "Yes. George," said the
conductor, "it is a little soon, but I've teen
you make better runs than that with the
old two-four." Then there wa. a great
transformation tcence. The sad face of

One Man's 'Wardrobe.
The personal effects of young Mr. Ben
zon, the so called Jubilee Plunger, were
sold at auction, and an umozing lot of
stuff it was, too. Yon r Benzon has been
going down hill at a r--!tty rapid rate; tho
tailors and tradespeople did not discover
his evasive characteristics until he had
mulcted them of goods in a considerable
sum. As you possibly recall, he got into
serious difficulty at Iice by forging the
name of a friend and drawing money
Benzon's effects were auctioned off In an
old Bond street salesroom. Among them
was every variety of apparel from a dress
suit down to silk socks. There were morn
ing coats, pique and colored shirts, um
brellas, walking sticks, neckties, hosiery,
scarfpins, cord breeches, waistcoats, satin
jockey caps, traveling bags, watches, cigar
holders, cigarette cases, hat boxes, pin
cushions, watch charms, spurs, flannel
trousers, crimson hunting coats, gold pen
cils, silk suspenders, silk handkerchiefs,
an antique sword, smelling bottles, gloves
galore, etc. etc.
Why, old Brummel himself might have
envied the collection of finery. In one
batch alone thero were GG piquo waistcoats,
139 collars, 24 silk cravat and 20 colored
tiesl There was nothing small about Ben
zon's wuy of doing business. When the
Jubilee Plunger entered a tailor's or a
haberdashery he took everything for which
he could get credit. Tho swath he cut was
a wide one, if it was not long. It it said
that in one afternoon alone, at the time he
was at perihelion, Benzon purchased cloth
ing amounting in tho aggregate to $3,000.
He used to boast that he would not wear
the same iuit of clothes twice What a
dash this delectable creature would have
cut in Gotham! Eugene Field in Chicago
A ISarlal In a Stranga Fort.
Quiet and still seems everything on our
ship, for an awful presence has come on
hoard during the night and has taken
shape there, under the drooping canopy of
flags amidships, in the coffined form of the
"A-a-ll hands bury the dead I" the solemn
call of the boatswain sound throngh the
ship. Quietly and in respectful silence ths
crew assemblfs, the officers grouped to star
board, and, as the chaplain reads the irn
ple service, rough faces soften and head
are bowed in reverential awe.
The bearers lift tho coffin, the marine
guard present arms and the body is gputly
lowered over the side into the cutter lying
there to receive it, while officers and crew
take their places in the boats, and a little
proceftslon captain's pennant, ship's and
boats' colors at half mast starts for the
land, there to lay the poor fellow to rest In
a little white walled inclosure on a bight
on the harbor side, and where, gone before
him long years ago, many a gallant sailor
English and American lies, awaiting
the last call for "All hands."
Quietly and geotly the dead man is low
ered into ha la berth; with spout of
flame and circling clond of smoke tho ri
fles render martial honor, and then in th
sad, sweet music of "taps" the bugle
sounds the sailor-soldier's last good night.

A Story of Jay Cenld.
That reminds me of a story of Jay Goold
which I have never seen in print. It re
bites to th purchase of the Missouri Pa
cific railroad, which Jay Go aid bought of
Garrison. The road wiw paying good divi
dends, and Garrison was not at all anxious
to selL Jay Gould asked him what he
would take for the property, and his reply
was. "Two and one-half million dollars."
"That is toe much." replied Gould, "aad
I can't give if
"Well," returned Garrison, "you don't
need to take It if yoa don't want to, bnt I
will tell you that the price will be 13.000.000
to-morrow." Gould laughed and walked
The next day he called again and offered
to giTe the I2J500 000 for the road. "Yoa
