A METROPOLITAN PAPER. ;-e Easle "With Its Own "Wire and the Associated Press Eeport In Full. The Wichita Daily EAGLE boasts a greater number of readers than any other publication in Kansas, not only, but no other daily paper of the state contains so many features and characteristics of the metropolitan journal. That this has been true of the EAGLE ever since its first ap pearance as a daily no one familiar with the status of the various publications in the west will deny. The Eagle's field, if more remote and less "nccessiblesto the over-crowded competi tion of the older centers of the state, has had an immeasurably wider and more de sirable field. Its patrons, however, will be interested !n knowing that the news service of the EAGLE henceforth is to be vastly enlarged and very materially improved, in brief that its columns will from this time on be jerved with the fall wire and cable news of the Associated Press reports of Europe and America. The domestic news of this continent, up to within a few months ago, was inter changeably handled by a number of press associations in connection with the West ern Union Telegraph company. The EAGLE was a member of the Kansas and Missouri association, an adjunct of the Western Press. These associations weie in (act corporations, organized not for a nonsy piofit but for gathering and dis tributing the news of Jhe world at the low est possible cost to the members. At the time referred to a consolidation under a single management was affected, in an effort for self-presarvation against a threatened stock and dividend monopoly with ihe headquarters in New York City. To the new organization the name of "The Associated Press" was given and Mr. Mel ville E. Stone of Chicago, one of the bright est business men of the country, was chosen general manager who immediate ly proceeded to Europe where he consummated arrangements and contracts with the English, French, German and other press and intelligence bureaus and companies for all old world nens. The Eagle, being a member of the Kansas and Missouri Press, of which the Western Piess was the parent, was notified of its opportunity for the enlarged service, but owiog to a bitch in the circuit line, or transmitting wires, existing between the telegraph and railroad companies under a previous contract, the matter of the Eagle's service was postponed from month to month, it in the meanwhile being supplied by the Kansas and Missouri Press agents. All difficulties havine been finally ad justed by the EAGLE leasing a wire con nected with the full report circuit, one end of which is now anchored in the EAGLE office, with an expert press operator at the instrument, the news of the whole world is" put at our disposal from which to select, or to run in full, as the interest and demands of our readers may be best served. They are now assured that nothing of import ance can happen, anywhere, and they not know it fully and promptly. One noticable and valuable feature will prove especially acceptable to all the business men of every town and city throughout South Kansas and Oklahoma. We refer to the markets. From the full reports, from everywhere, will be culled every quotation which can in any way interest the business meu of the gieat southwest who hereafter will not be com pelled to await the arrival of papers from distant cities to know what the ruliifg figures are. Our readers, of course, will understand that this means an additional expense of several thousand dollars annually to the EAGLE, but our faith in the great field that lies all about us and in the enterprise of the men who have come to occupy it, linked to tho knowledge that they cannot afford, uor will they wait for that which they can have just as well twenty-tour hours sooner, we confidently solicit their good will and support in air enterprise which, while in one sense may be private yet which after all is more a pub lic one, in that it not only seeks to guard and defend all their public concerns, but which the more closely links all their en terprises,prcsent interests and future pros pects, with the great ceuters of tho world. With a corps of bright writers and wide awake news gatherers and reporters, sup plemented by special correspondents lo cated at every town and city iu South Kansas and Oklahoma; equipped with tho finest, most costly and rapid perfecting press ever set up west of the Missouri river, morning mail trains nioviug out on every line of railway that directly or by close connections reaches this city, the Eagle, as the old and long-tried champion of all the interests and enterprises of the Great Southwest, now, with Its new aud enhanced wire service, and consequently increased power and importance, confidently looks forward to new -victories and brighter matorial achievements for itself and its thousands of patrons. Chicago is a progressive and aggressive metropolis, but she is about six years too late in claiming the first woman lawyer. Wichita enjoys that distinction, if it may be so esteemed. Mrs. Mary E. Le ase was admitted to the bar as a practicing at torney six years ago, and did for a time practice the profession befoie the courts of Sedgwick county. Admiral Bcnham's patriot ism was fired and so were his cannon balls. r MMJmYf i-"aiiai' tetfefZiK.fi THAT INCOME TAX BIX. The west can well afford to occupy neutral grounds on the income tax, es pecially western Republicans. It is a Democratic measure, to be supported by a Democratic congress, and, as such, no part of the responsibility attaches to the minority. From a business standpoint the west would be the gainer, as the tax would be paid mostly by people with laige holdings in the trade centers of the east. Since public revenues must be raised, and especially since the income tax bill's most ardent supporters aie southern Democrats, there is no reason why any western member of congress or western prople should rend their clothes to defeat it. The few men whose income exceeds $4,000 a year are not the kind to grumble or perjure themselves to save a few dollars tax. That is not the spirit which prevails with western people. The class who skin the nickles and squeeze the dimes never find their way to the free air of these great plains. Give us half the income of the eastern states and we will pay all revenues and ask no favors. On its merits there is much to be said in favor of an income tax. As stated before, it would be paid mostly by the rich, who are made so under laws which tolerate monopolies and trusts. These laws "have been a veritable wall of defense to all forms of corporate plunder. All that is needed is the combination of influence, backed by sufficient capital, to control the price of any article of consumption. We have seen the baneful influences of this system all over the country, and suffered extoi tions till we are quite ready to en dorse any reasonable device which will lift a share of tho buiden from the poor and place it upon those who aie able to bear it. A tax on sugar means more to the laborer with a family to support than even an exorbitant tax on the yeaily income of those who have a surplus. Great stress is laid upon the point that it is an incentive to perjury. This would be amusing were it not pueiile on its face. Piimanly it means "don't place tempta tion in our way or we will swear to a lie." Such rot is like the irony of one not ashamed of this grade of crime. If law fosters and builds up monopoly why not require monopolists to pay for the privileges? INDEFENSIBLE DISPENSE. Senator Sherman's defense of the Car lisle bond pioposition will not stiength en that measure before the public. The senators advocacy of tho repeal of the silver law beaiing his name, the countiy having failed to re ceive the benefits promised in the way of financial relief, has lost to him a con siderable degree of the popular regard ho had so long enjoyed as a wise and safe financier. The fact is, it would be im possible for anyone to convince the masses of the people of this country that there is any good and sufficient ex cuse, much less necessity, for inci easing the public debt by issuing bonds when tho government has abundant other 1 e tources fioni which to meet its current obligations. The great Ohio common er's legnrd for his own personal and official consistency may impel him to his present stand, but the stand doe3 not consist with the popular regard for the country's best interests as tho people understand them. COWARDLY PRETEXTS. If Piesident Cleveland chooses to op pose the admission of any or all of the territoiiesnow seeking such piivileges because of the stiength they would add to the cause of silvei, which is known to be his real leason, let him say so, and not insult the intelligence and judgment of the people of those communities and of the couutay at largo w ith the quibble that their admission will not help the geneial welfare of tho country. To make staff s of the teiritories would help the general welfare of the country to the extent of relieving the tieasury of the buiden of maintaining covernment for them, amounting in the aggiegate to millions of dollais every year, if in no other way. But it would help the country to a much gi eater extent in giving it tho benelit of the development of tho varied lesources of tho teriitoiies which cannot be done in their present condition. The idea suggested of putting the pop ulous east with its great interests at the mercy of tho west is one that Mr. Cleve land, as an eastern man and as piQsidont of the United States, cannot affoid to advance. It is a spirit of sensationalism that cannot but be pernicious in its ef fects and most detiiuiental to the iutei estsof the east, once it is inauguiated as a policy. The weatidoes not seek nor desire to dominate the country in its governmental policy; but having attained the position of equality iu point of popu lation, and appioxlnnitely of wealth, it does not propose to longer submit to tho arbitrary dictation that has hitherto characterized the east, especially in matters peitaining to national finances. The question of drawing sectional lines on certain economic propositions has been raised heietofoie, though it has never been seriously considered by the west; but if the rast insists on making such an issue, and chooses to precipitate it on the money question, using state hood for the teiritoiies as the convenient pretext, the west 13 ready to meet it and will contest it to a final settlement. A WOMAN ON FEMALE SUFFRAGE. "Amber,"' tho well-known contributor to the Chicago Ilerald, whose philo sophical writings evince the keenest in sight into the political as well as the social conditions of the times, was re cently pounced upon by a frantic female suffragist, in the person of a woman, who demanded that "Amber" should wield her pen in the interest of her own down trodden sex. "Amber" replied: "I have no wrongs to redress, no fault to find with men; the world yields me a good living and all mankind are my friends." The astonijhed warrior of the gripsack screeched back: "Don't you claim suf frage; don't you work for a living and get less pay than a man? You are blind to your best interests and deaf to the wail of universal womanhood!" In her reply to this tribute, "Amber," who is not only a mother, iu middle life, but who knows what it is to struggle with the world, referred to Kansas' brilliant example of women in politics, drawing the follcwinc inferences which cannot be upset' by all the rageful ranters, who are to meet next week in Washington to plan a campaign in Kan sas. She said: "One such female as that Mrs. Lease of Kansas would harden the hearts of a generation. Ranting, scolding, tearing shrews need expect nothing of men but contempt. It is unfortunate, perhaps, but it is true, that wherever and whenever & woman is forced into competition with the other sex she loses ground the mo ment she becomes aggressive. You may curl your lip at that and call it nonsense, but it is a fact. Square your elbows and thrust out your chin and you may prove that you are as good as the next one, but you will cease to win a delicate regard. It is old-fashioned talk, and in my mind's eye I see the strong-minded frown, but the gospel holds no greater truth than the statement I make heie, that women were intended (0 be cared for and to have the rough edges of life padded by man's forethought and tenderness befoie they come in contact with them. They were meant to be womanly, and when you show them to me alert, up to business, mannish and aggressive, you show me what was meant to be a rose in the hide of a prick ly pear. The purchase of one hundred thousand acres of land in Mississippi by a French syndicate is announced. The purchase is made for the purpose of locating colo nies of French emigrants, who desire to make permanent homes in this country. Another purchase of twenty-five thous and acres in Tennessee by French capi talists, and for the same purpose, is also announced. If these moves shall prove to be the first swells of a tide of immi giation to the south it portends serious consequences to the colored people of that section. Being rivals in the field of common labor, it is not to be expected that the new-coming foreigners will be any more friendly towaid the negroes than tho native whites of that section, who have been raised amongst and with them and who know and understand them. Sambo may be crowded out of his native southland after all, and in spite of himself. Th6 historical wiite-up appearing in the Kansas City Star on Kansas Day re feis to one O. H.

He was one among the oldest geniuses that ever lived any whore. The editor of the Eagle still retains the files of the paper for which his communications' were wiitten, Fletcher Meredith, editor of the Hutch inson Heiald, says its huits him to think how many mean men and scuirillous skunks he has in his time supported for office. If Fletcher wants to find out how mean he himself is let him support himself in some race for office.

SOCIAL SrWIS. Che OstentatlonaneM of the Uncultured People of Means. As an illustration of the undeveloped condition of the ostentatious person it may be well to describe the appearance of a certain woman whose husband had lately succeeded to great affluence. It was at a pension in Paris: the time, the eve of her departure for America. In loud strident tones this very kind hearted matron detailed the events of her shopping expeditions. "How many bonnets do you think I am taking back?" she asked. "Three or four? I have thirteen, one for each suit" And forthwith she insisted on bring ing out some of the handsome goods she had procured, to the intense amuse ment of the French and English fellow-boarders and the discomfiture of her modest American acquaintances. On another occasion these latter Americans were ordering some suits of a dressmaker when a countrywoman entered. She had selected silks for her daughters, still in school, and wished to confer about the style of making. Madame listened courteously. Finally shrugging her shoulders, she burst out with: "Mceses, shall it be you wish so much showy trimming for ze young de moiselles? I like not ze taste. Have not ze young ladies time enough after ward for ze lace, ze velvet, and ze dia monds? I call that bad, very bad, nrooch too badl Let ze dress fit ze age and ze occasion'.' Often and often since have the ex pletives of the disgusted Frenchwoman come to mind on seeing the ostenta tion of the ambitious.

"To be simple is to be great," says Emerson, and all noble souls arc of that order which in losing lf-con-sciousness, also lose ostentation. Hester M. Poole, in Chautauquan. Mlnd Cnr.

Pack. - j - 3ft.taMt.i:.A l EDUCATION AND LOVE. He Decided to Jt One Go to Get the Other. Riding along in a valley of the Cum berland mountains one afternoon 1 came to a schoolhouse built of logs. It was evidently for summer scholars only, as -there were wide cracks be tween the logs, and the doors and win dows were merely boles of varying size sawed out of the solid. The scholars jWere having a recess and the teacher was sitting on a stump by the roadside, evidently in trouble. I greeted him and stopped a moment to ask the way. He answered so gloomily that I was alarmed. "What's wrong?" I asked; "are you sick?" "I reckon I am, mister," he replied; "but it can't be cured with medicines, leastways no doctor medicine." "You must be in love," I ventured with a half-laugh. He looked up quickly and his face flushed. "How j'ou know?" he asked. "Is thar signs uv it on me?" "Some few," I answered confidently, for I knew by the telltale flush what hurt him. "You've guessed it, mister," he con fessed. "I knowed it 'ud begin to show through purty soon. " "How long have you had it?" "Oh, fer nigh onto six months, butit only broke out about four days ago." "And the girl wouldn't have you?" "You guess closeter enough to make . me kinder reckon you've had it your self," he said. "We all do some time," I told him as n encourager. "Tain't ketchin", is it?" he asked ervously. " Well, I should say it was, after a fashion." ' "Gals don't seem to ketch it." "They do, just the same." "Well, by gosh, this one I'm talkin' bout ain't cotch it; anyhow not from me." "WhaVs the matter? Why doesn't she?" "I'll be dinged ef I know. I reckon it's eddication what does it." "Education?" I inquired, slightly as tonished. "Yes, you see I'm a school teacher, an' have got eddication, an' she ain't got enough to know a 'rithmetic from a joggerfy." "But that shouldn't make any differ ence." "Reckon it does, though, mister. Leastaways, when I fust sot in, we got along mighty peart, an' then I got kinder stuck up and began to sling ad jectives an' pronouns an' verbs an' con junctions an' adverbs an' participles into my language, an' four nights ago I let her have a lot of syntax an a par ticipial adverb, an' dog my cats ef sh didn't git on a high hoss an' ain't spoke to me sence, I reckon that participial adverb war, the hound that skeered the rabbit Mister," said he, coming up to me, "hadn't I better drap the eddica tion?" "Why not drop the girl?" I asked. "Thunder, mister, she's drapped me," he exclaimed, "an' it hurts" "But there are other girls," I sug gested, "and there is only one educa tion." "No, mister," he said solemnly, "ther's only one gal in these mountains fer me, an' ef ther's only one eddica tion it's got to git out of the way fei the gal. Thet's what was trosiblin' me when you rid up, an' it's settled. It's time to take up from recess now. Good-by." and he started toward the schoolhouse shouting "Books, books!" in a strong exultant voice, Detroit Free Press. Two Full Moons Id One tfoath. An odd little astronomical fact in connection with the year 1S93, and one which has not been noticed, perhaps, by one person in eaoh 10,000 of the en tire population of the country, is this: Two months of the year, January and April, each had two full moons. July, 1890, was equally as well provided for, but none of the months of 1501 nor 1302 exhibit this lunar peculiarity. In look ing up some references on the question I find that tho year 1581 had two months, January and March, each hav ing two full moons, I would like to ask if any of the readers of "Notes for the Curious" know the rule for finding the months for two full moons, and if any of the years of modern times have had two such months other than those citej, A Masterpiece.

There are two men in congress who never carry an umbrella. These are Congressman Kilgore, of Texas, and Senator Cockrell, of Missouri. Last year there -were three anti-umbrella statesmen, for Tillman, of South Car olina, was there to swell the ranks. No matter what the weather, whether it be snow or rain that is descending from tho clouds, these men do not take enough account of tho storm to carry an umbrella. It is not so wonderful that Kilgore does not possess one of these articles of personal apparel, for he wears a sombrero of the wild Texas variety that is so wide that any arti ficial covering is entirely unnecessary. But Cockrell wears a narrow bat and walks through the pouring rain total ly oblivious of all the elements. Sen ator Vest some years ago presented Cockrell with an umbrella as a Christ mas remembrance, but that umbrella has never yet been opened. Awarded Highest Honors World's Fair.
