A married man in this town whose more communicative half is given to a verbosity of chin music, colls her "one of the merry wives of wind, sir." Married. October 15th, 1870, at the residence of Mr. Monroe, Emporia, Kan sas, by Rev. A. 8. Dudley, Mr. Lyman Pease and Miss Barbara Weisborn. Is the committee that was appointed, at the second lecture of Hon. Bain of Kentucky to execute the tempcreuce cause, at home or abroad T J. II. D. Charles A. Grooms was brought from Council Grove to Emporia Thursday, and committed to jail, on charge of mur der in the first degree, lie Is to be tried at the next term of tho Morris county court. Our friend, John Fluker, who quit wrestling with the corn, oats and feed problem some ten days ago to take a lit tle turn with the bilious fever, is out again. The Pennsylvania feed store is triumphant The newfangled "snap-slings" used by boys are dangerous playthings, and ought to be confiscated by the police. The boys shoot pebbles and bullets with force enough to put out eyes, scare horses and do other damage. We learn that It E. Torrington, agent at the Santa Fe depot, came very near breaking his right arm last Friday. He was moving some freight when a barrel of cement fell over jamming the arm and hand between the side of the car and bar rel. Tho number of children of school age in Lyon county, is 5,108 ; an Increase of COO on the census of 1873. Tho total in crease of children of school ago in the state, over last year, is estimated at S0,-2-10. . The cause of education is con tinually increasing in importance. Ed. King of New York, president of the Union Trust company, accompanied by general manager Mitchell and traffic manager Robinson, stopped hero Satur day for a couple of hours. They were on a tour of inspection and went north to Junction City about noon. Cupt Sommers accompanied the party north. Dr. Stover lost two horses Thursday. Ho was coming home from the junction of the two rivers, and when within two miles of the city one of the horses drop ped, and while he was unharnessing that the other one fell and both died in ten minutes. He had fed both with oats be fore starting for home. The Hotel. We are informed that the prospect to build a first class hotel in Emporia is rapidly assuming shape and that a first class location has been selected. Tho enterprise will be carried out by a joint stock company, which sev. eral of our leading citizens organized. They desire to put up the largest and finest hotel in the state. Emporia is fast becoming an educa tional center of Kansas. The State Nor mal school is growing rapidly, and no public school in the state has a more efficient superintendent than Mr. Davis, of the city schools. Tho Educationalist, a four-page folio, published at Emporia, is altout to close its first volume. It is modest in appearance and claims, but it is more creditable to the suite man other more pretentious journals that come to our table. Practical Teacher (Chicago). What's the matter with the Winfield and Wellington postmasters f Haven't lucy, singly or combined, weight, politi cat influence or olllclal promineuce enough to get the mails of their respec tive cities delivered by cars now that they have daily trains? Wichita Eagle. What's the matter also with tho Wich. ita postmaster f For years Emporia has been doing the British and German mon ey order businees for tho Arkansas val ley, amounting to many thousands of dollars, and causing great inconvenience and delay to the people of those nation alities in Sedgwick and surrounding counties. Hasn't the Wichita postal as ter weight, and political influence and official prominence enough to get these conveniences for the . patrons of the Wichita office. Of course we like to do this business for the people of the Arkansas valley, but when it is consider ed that persons receiving foreign money orders, who live in the 'section tributary to Wichita, have to wait for their money till a notice reaches them from Emporia office, then till the power of attorney to collect the money is returned, it is a matter of great inconvenience and delay, often as muck as ten days. Now we advise the Wichita postmaster to look a 'lectio ouod" before pitching into his neighbors, and we will say that if he hasn't influence enough to get what is due his office we tender bur services and will promise him that he shall have au thority to issue and pay foreign orders if lie so desires. The Water Work Qnention. Ed. S. Alexander, of the firm of Rus sell & Alexander, of Chicago, builders of water works, was in town Saturday, inter viewing the members of the city council in regard to water works for Emporia. Mr. Alexander here about two months ago, and informs us that the cost of the water pipe for the proposed works here is now $3,000 or more than it was at his previous visit the cost of iron having unexpectedly advanced since that time. All kind of iron work is still advancing, and the sooner the council can buy the material the less it will cost If we are to have any water works, theie. fore, it will 5e economy to purchase the pipes as soon as practicable. Russell & Alexander are extensive builders of water works, and rank among the leading firms of engineers and con tractors in the country. They huve sup plied a number of cities with first class works, and can furnish any kind wanted in probably as short a time, and we be lieve in as substantial a manner, as any firm in the country. The city council has devoted a great deal of atten tion to investigating and discussing a feasible and economical system ot water works, and we understand has practically agreed npon a plan. It would pay while Mr. Alexander is here, to get him to furnish estimates, as his figures would no doubt be reliable, and it may be that a good many thousand dollars can be saved by taking action without any unnecessary delay; . Mr. Obcst, a Swede, on his way from Ann Arbor, Michigan, to a place called Switzerland colony, near Wichita, was taken with an .epileptic fit on Commer cial street Saturday, and was attended by Dr. Hibbcn. Mr. Ileilman will keep him over Sunday, and will try to raise a subscription to purchase the unfortu- nate pedestrian a railroad ticket to Wichita. Hon. Win. A. Phillips, ex-member of congress, was at the Park Place hotel Saturday accompanied by his family, on their way to La Junta, Colorado. Tin1 Colonel, of course, called on the News, of which he was the racy Lawrence cor respondent during Governor Walker's. military occupancy of that town, in 1857. In the colonel Kansas has always had a true and able friend. Mr. Inkerraan, deputy clerk of the court, has his room at the court house fitted up in good style, and Harry Hib bcn sleeps there also. The hitter's bed is, however, two feet short, but he man ages to sleep by extending his legs over the rear end and resting his feet on a stool. Just as soon as he stops growing, Harry is going to have a bed mado long enough to take his feet in, and we are in favor of an enlagement of the courthouse if necccssary to effect that object. Big Yarns. lion. A. W. Cullen, of Junction City, commonly called "Old Grizzly," came in from Colorado a few days ago, and filled the Topeka Com monwcalth reporter with "wind pud- ding." Here's a couple of items : "He reports that Hon. S. M. Strickler, of Junction City, has formed a partner ship with Sir. Eaves, formerly of Leav enworth, and that they have a saw-mill in operation, which yields them the handsome return of $240, net, per day. He says that U. o. ben a tor l'lutnb lias realized two millions of dollars in his operations." Not a -Good Ykau joii Kissing. It seems there must have grown up a pre judice against tho kissing of ladies and babies by candidates for office. At least a couple of candidates for county treas urer announce that they cannot engage in that luxury this year. Our friend Dr. Armor announced in the News of this week that he had been so fortunate as to be nominated by both the Green- backers and Democrats, and consequent ly ho wanted the Independent voters to remember him, but that he couldn't go 'round kissing the babies and soliciting votes in a hypocritical sort of way, but he would at the same time appreciate votes. Then comes "T. D." in another paper and says that he, too, has been nominated by the Grccnbackcrs and Democrats, and consequently he, also, wants to be remembered by the Inde pendent votere, but that he cannot go 'round in a "hypocritical" sort of way kissing the ladies. We do not know "T. D.," but if he is no belter looking man than Dr. Armor we don't know which to congratulate tho most heartily the babies or the ladies. Oh, small demagoguery, thou art an interesting in fant Thursday's Uolng. Thursday was a "field day" for whis ky in Emporia. We learn there were no less than four or five fights at different "gin mills," and a dozen or more arrests were made. We hear that in one saloon there were two rows, in one of which the proprietor struck a fellow over the head with a beer glass, causing blood to flow freely. At another on Emporian and a gentleman from the country had a regular old fashioned "chaw up," In which the country man came out "best man." These fights occur frequentlyi and our ieople are becoming thoroughly aroused at the disgrace they bring upon tho town. Not a citizen but feels deep shame for the performances of Thursday, and all are inquiring if something can not be done to put a stop to these dis graceful scenes. Does the license to sell intoxicating drinks carry with it the right to fight like a lot of barb.uians and to disturb the public peace as it was disturbed on that day ? We remem ber that some years ago when the license system was in force that those who were trusted with it were required to conduct their gin shops in strict ac cordance with its terms and the law, and on several occasions license was refused at the expiration of the time for which it was granted, and It seems to us that some of those now holding license should be similarly treated. Certainly the city council will not allow the present state of affairs to exist a great while, as the city is being irreparably injured in its material interests, to uy nothing of the dreadful consequences which must fol low the present condition of the liquor question in a moral view. In a walk down Commercial street Thursday after noon from Fifth avenue to the depot, besides the fihts that occurred, a per son was regaled with the sight of men reeling with drunkenness, while others were so far gone as to be sitting about in unconscious inebriety. It is time some thing were done, and done quickly, to check the present disgraceful condition of things. Society Notes. Emporia, Oct 13. Having been invited to attend the In vincible society at the norma, we avail ed ourselves of the opportunity yester day evening, and were highly pleased with the entertainment The exercises wero opened with music, followed by a recitation from "Hiawatha," by Miss nood, which was highly appreciated. The much debated question, intemper ance and war, was discussed on the af firmative by Messrs. Severy and Cleppcr, both niciuliers of the Y. M. D. S. and on the negative by Messrs. Kizer and McBride. The former gentlemen sue. cecded in convincing two of the judges that intemperance is the greatest evil ' but the cry of the other was for war. The choir then sang "Drifting with the Title," and so quietly did we drift along that we were unaware, till we beheld Mr. llics on the floor to declaim, thnt we had arrived at the haven. After miscellane ous business and another song the tujcie- ty adjourned. ' - A word of praise is due the president, Mr. Smith, for the efficient manner in which be discharged the duties of his office. We would make particular mention of the many young ladies who were pres ent, but we fear the boys would become jealous and not invite us to come again. The young men's debating society met on Thursday night instead of Friday night, as heretofore. A full attendance was present, and a very interesting de bate ensued on the question, "Should the constitutional amendment relating to the manufacture and sale of intoxicating liquors be passed ?" Messrs. K innan and Jones were leaders on the respective sides, and acquitted themselves well. The effects of the license system were such on that day as to udd nothing by wav of example to the argument of the negative. This society may be billed as strongly in lavor of the amendment The society will meet hereafter on Thurs day evening, thus giving several mem bers who belong to another society an opportunity of attending botu. Kefokteu. The Severe Yoong Mr. Jay. Mr. Jay's defense of tho lo:ird fully proves all that we asserted, which was that the proposition to vote f "20,000 for no definitely stated object, was an ab surdity, and should be withdrawn and mollified so that it would state explicitly what the board proposed to do with the money. He first says we evidently knew nothing almul the proposition, then states that the board lmd not issued any propo sition, then uiids that the proposition was issued in accordance with a petition, then says that the proposition has been withdrawn, and adds in a postscript that ttic mayor will probably issuo another proposition which will give some idea of what the board proposes to do with the money. The impression created by Mr. Jay's jumble of contradictory statements is that he knows nothing about the prop osition himself, and that the rest of the board enjoy a still more blissful wisdom in regard to it. According to Mr. Jay, the mayor issues and withdraws and re issues propositions to vote $20,000 for the use of the board of education, but the board knows nothing about it, and is not responsible. And now the board ex pects that the maj'or will "probably" is sue a $15,000 proposition, which will probably contain some reference to a high school, but whether the mayor will issue the proposition, and what object he will designate that the board will use the money for, is what nobody knows, and the only way to find out is to nttend the meetings of the board and listen attentively to its proceedings. They must lie very lucid and interesting, so much so that we do not wonder that the clerk docs not at tempt to furnish a report for publication, and that Mr. Jay gets so badly mixed when he undertakes to explain juat what has been done. We have simply to reiterate what we have said, that the people will vote down any proposition to vote bonds that fails to state definitely what the bonds are to be used. for. This is tho idea we want to get into the minds of the board of education, and when it gets this idea clearly in view, it will probably not is sue or have tho mayor issue any proposi tion that docs not state what is going to be done with the money. This is our position, and the jieople will endorse it If we desired to be severe, or awful.y cutting, you know, we might inquire of the defender of the board if it is the cus tom of that body to submit propositions for the people to vote the small sum of $20,000 to everybody that asks them, and then when the "racket" begins to come to "dodge from under" and say it don't hold itself responsible. We might in quire further of this valliant knight what caused the board to "change front" and withdraw the proposition it was not responsible for, and why he did not go ahead and "lead public opinion" and cram tho $20,000 down tho people's throats whether they would have it or not How could such a profound personage show the "white feather" and proceed to "crawfish" in good order by attempting to throw the responsibility on the mayor. - If you want a city school house why don't you say so, and Inform the people just what you want? If you want school bonds for a denominational college, so state, and if the people want to vote them, all right But don't make your self a tool of somebody to attempt a trick on the public. Editors News: Your editorial in yesterday's doily assails the board of education upon a proposition about which you apparently knew nothing. The board of education had, prior to last Monday evening, submitted no proposi tion of any kind to the voters of thisdis strict, for which it holds iUelf respon sible. And you state in the editorial criticised that you knew nothing of the action (;iki ;i ut that meeting. A public meeting held at the court house adopted unanimously a resolution which was published in your issue of the next day, I tli ink, requesting the board to submit the following proposition : Iittolted That the mayor be, and he is hereby requested to call an election to be neiu on the nrst Tuesday iu Novem ber, A. D. 1879, for the purpose of sub mitting to the. qualified electors of the city of Emporia and the territory at tached, ior school purposes, the follow ing -cestion : Shall the board of educa tion of the city of Emporia borrow mon ey for the erection of a school build in? iu said district, to be used or disposed of as may seem to oe lor the educational interest of tho district and for that pur pose, issue and sell Its bonds tor $20, 000, or as much thereof as may be neces sary ; said bonds to be issued in denomi nations of $200, SUjOO. $500. and $1,000 each, and to draw interest at the rate of 7 per cent per annum, annually, and the principal navable in 20 vcara from the date of issuance ; provided. That these oonus shall not be sold Tor less than their pax value. A petition, signed by nearly 200 (if I remember rightly) citizens of the dis trict, was presented to the board making the same request, and the committee representing the petitioners made the fur ther statement that every man to whom the petition was presented, with but less than half a dozen exceptions, had en dorsed the same. The names npon the petition are those of our representative business men, and their opinions consol idated ought to have at least'equal weight with the embryo expressions of youred itorial writer. Such a petition, if it meant anything, affirmed the need of in creased school accommodation, and the opinion of the signers as to the require- inenU of the situation. The board of education acted simply as the channel through which, the petitioners could reach their object and are no more re sponsible for the particular proposition at that time submitted, be it good or bad, than are the editors of the News. The proposition above alluded to has since been withdrawn, and I presume the mayor will shortly submit a propo sition calling for an appropriation of $13,000 to build and equip abuilding for the use of the district for school pur- jxwes. May I inquire if it is your custom us editors to mold opinion or to be mold ed by it? ! you generally wait until a proposition is dead before assailing it or in other words is your valor so rarely tempered with discretion as to be often mistaken for timidity ? Hoping that you will have the manli ness to acknowledge the injustice of your attack upon the board of education and give this statement a place in the daily of this date, I remain yours truly, W. S. J AT, A Member of the Board of Education. P. S. The sessions of the board are open and reporters are welcome. October 17, 1570. CONCERNING LYON COUNTY SCHOOLS.

Kditexl by "Keoo." Thuksdav, Oct. 10. Squiro Wjse is now boss drummer in the band. "Calico Charley and Iloopenhcker' I believe is what the opposition did call them. Now I presume they will be spoken of as Governors Foster and Ilick- enlooper. , There was a candidate in town yester day the first of the new crop. A fine rain we had, you bet. Ilcv. Chaffee and family are here visit ing friends. If they visit all of them they will need to go to every house in town. Mrs. Clarke who located on Dow creek In 18C1, but now liviug in Emporia, is in town taking orders for "The Life and Travels of Gen. Grant," and has been quite successful. Well, yes, Mr. "Anon" (correspond ent Fruitland,) wo accept your very kind invitation will take a look at the girl and if she suits, and we suit, and she hasn't any other suitor why we'll be suited. There was a young fellow in town yes terday don't know if he was a parson or not, but he came from Parsons that would take "them shoes" (the shoes of fered as a premium to the homeliest bachelor, by the handsome young lady clerks at Thomas') in any crowd ever we struck. He was so ugly. I showed him to my girl, and for the first time in her life she called me "her little beauty." She was speaking by comparison, I pre snme. She and I are engaged now to attend the entertainment to be given at Tressler's hall, on Friday evening, Octo. her 24th. Come and see us. J. 8. Gibson, our hardware merchant, is on hand with - full line of stoves cooking stoves and heating stoves, coal, wood and gas stoves, ofiice stoves, parlor stoves, car loads of stoves in fact, stoves til you can't rest, and stove trimmings of every description, and we have found by actual experience that Mr. Gibson sells them full lower than they are sold in Emporia. This he can do, as he has no rent to pay, no clerk to hire, and all other expenses are lower here than in a larger town. Keno. P. S. Should any of our friends meet with the rooster from Parsons I hope they will introduce him to Harry Ilib ben, L.T. Heritage, C. A. Mitchell, T. J. Uoran, M. Coppock or E. P. Bruner, and just see if he don't make them feel ashamed of themselves for ever claiming "them shoes." - K. Friday, Oct 17. A case of assault and battery was be fore Squire Miller yeaterday. Mr. Greenlea has bung up an apple tree limb in Miller's that is six feet long and one inchthrough the butt carrying fifty-two apples and Mr. Greenlea wants to know if that ain't pretty high for a Demo cratic apple tree in an off year. "Another newspaper in Hartford" and the Emporia Ledger says: "Americus, where art thou ?" In answer to the con nundrum, we would simply answer Americus is ahead as usual, with a daily paper and three weekly papers. We have the Daily News a paper that has advertised Americns more then three weakly paiters published here would have done, because it has a circulation that can not be bad by a paper published here. We have tho weekly Nkws, the weekly Ledger and Era any one of which is a better advertising medium for Americus than a local paper would be, and besides they don't cost our merchants cents where a local paper costs dollars. There are merchants in Hartford that are paying f 100 per year to keep the paper going. That's all I know about it ex cept what I learn by the following postal, which I give verbatim except names, hartford kan Oct 15 79. sir is their anv liverv Stable in your Town if so how many Teams has he ana whether be would sell out what is the size orf your Town Please let me no jsy return mam and oblige yours Hartford kan lyon co. There wasn't a dollar enclosed in the postal to pay for the trouble, or even a nickle adhering to that postal to pay for paper, envelope and postage, and that makes me think they need a religious papa per and an educational sheet in ad dition to the two papers already there. Saturday, Oct 13. "Civil engineer" Whitmorc, of Dow creek, was in town yesterday. .: Some fellows have been stealing some wood on the "Trust, land" or somebody lies. The -Consolidated Combination Troupe,1 composed entirely of home tal ent Americus and Emporia will give an entertainment on Friday evening next, at Tressler's hall.

Alice wishes to sell his residence, with seventeen acres of land adjoining the townsite on the north. The ladies of tho M.

The first of these socials was held last night at Mrs. Bond's, and was successful beyond their most sanguine exH-ctations. The house was tilled mul all Kcemed to ap preciate that it was avW.n in fad.
