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.

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.

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

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

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.

"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

the gal. Thet's what was trosiblin' me

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,

'o Use for Umbrella.
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.
