been doing the British and German mon

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

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

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

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; .

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

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
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.
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-
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.

"Another newspaper in Hartford" and

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

going. That's all I know about it ex
