The Required Amount of Slock Secured, the Site Selected and Purchaeed and the Project Prog-re Ming Finely. A a rter aiinnnnnement last week the atnnkholdera of the Baxter Snrinsrs Batter and Cheese Factory enterprise- met at me city nan weanesaay aiier noon with a good portion of the stock renreiiented. J. H. Ballard was called to the chair and W. G. Bates chosen secretary. It 11. Talbot, ot the eomminee on lirattnn nf the nlant. renortod that the committee had several suitable sites selected, but bad been unable to secure anv one of them in a definite wav. After some discussion of the matter E. M. Michener and C. F. EbenBteiu were added to the committee aud the ftiimniltteft continued' and emnowered to select aud purchase a suitable site ror tne piant. The meeting then adiourned after deciding to hold a meeting of all stockholders at tne city nan next Tuesday at 2 o'clock for the election of a board of directors and the comple tion of the permauent organization. soon alter me rueeuug aujourneu the location committee succeeded in securing a site of two acres a short distance northwest or tne jviempuis depot, it being a portion of the fifteen acre tract owned by ineuneroKee Lave Stock Co. The site was purchased at a cost of $300 and includes an excel lent well of water and a windmill pump. The site is high and roiling, is about the right distance from the city and altogether is quite satisfactory trt all concerned. The tract is 20 rods uorth and south by 16 rods east and west The hntldinff will be located lust south of the well and will be, accord ing to the contract, itzxitz teet, two atnrlea lilch. with au eneine room ad dition 12x20 feet one story high. The main building will be divided into six rooms. Mr. C. B. Barton, by whose efforts the nlant his been secured, left yester day for other fields as his part of the m . a a. a W woric nere nas been compietea. in a few days, possibly next week, he will be succeeded by the engineer, a Mr. Davis, who will locate the building site and prepare for the laying of the faniulation at once. The master me chanic will -then follow and in -a few days the building will be in course or cnnotriiRtion. Masons, carnentera and such other assistants as may be neces- a. m . . . . t sary aside rrom tne two men mention ed will be' employed at home. The lumber will be furnished by the Alleu Bros, planing mill of this city. The plant will be ready for operation about May 1st The News has made no great blow about the securing of this factory for Baxter Springs, but nevertheless it be lieves the enterprise is the best and most important one yet secured. Many believe it will prove of vastly more benefit to our city thau a uew railroad (a real, steel-rail road, we meant would, and it certalalv will prove of much more value to the farmers than an additional railway. While some of our business meu ought to be censured for not assisting as theyshould in securing this enter nriaA. Raxter Rnrlnva is fortunate in having It placed at her door, and the farmers are entitled to great creau and the cratitnde of our citizens for the part which they have taken and are taking in tne enterprise, w itnoui the generous assistance of our farmer friends, some of whom live a consid erable distance from the plant, the project must nave reauuea in lauure. Itnt Mr. Burton, whose exneriencc extends over several years and many states, says be never lias seen a better Iirospect for a successful factory than s presented here. He says there are more cows available for this factory to atart with than anv other he baa es tablished. The milk from 1500 to 2000 cows will be received and made Into butter and cheese here and with any thing like careful management ought to bring good returns from the start PINK CABINET PHOTOGRAPHS. Messrs. Schwartz & Son of Kansas City have secured rooms over Polster's drug store for one week only, where they will make the very best cabinet photos at $3.50 per dozen for any who may wish them.

Ferguson, who has been delivering a course of lectures in th Dyer hall the past week, has consent ed to remain next week and give six lectures at the city hall beginning Monday night, Feb. 3. The price oi admission will be ten cents, it being placed so low that all can attend dur ing the full course. The amount re quired to secure these lectures has been guaranteed by twelve gentlemen and firms of this city. After the introduction by the lec tures of tbe past week no further rec ommendation of tbe professor's ability to interest snd instruct is needed. Suffice it to say that this community has enjoyed such a treat in those al ready delivered as it seldom enjoy h and there is no doubtnhat those to come will be up to the high standard already established. The title of the lecture for Monday night will be "Star Land Wonders: The Flight or the Angel ; How Far i it From tbe Indian Territory to Heav en?" Don't fail to attend these iec tares : they will pay you well. Sub jects announced each night. Mr. S. Bricker, president of the Banner Manufacturing Co. of La Otto, Iud., who was 'here some months ago endeavoring to get a windmill manu factory established in Baxter Springs, is back again and desire to have the matter closed op in some way at once. He does not ask a dollar bonus, but wants a sufficient amount of power to run his machinery for a time and a small tract of laud on which to erect the plant Many of our citizeus are fully conversant with the details of this" project ss presented by Mr. Brick er on his former visit and we trust hn will receive a sufficient amount of en couragement to warrant him in put ting" in the factory, as it would cer tainly be of great benefit , to our city. He has received flattering propositions from Pittsburg, Girard and other ' points, but as he made his proposition to this city first be desires to give us one more chance of securing the en terprise and if our people want it tho necessary steps should be taken at once as his time is limited. A man going by the name of Bud Ladd was arrested by a small mob near Horseshoe lake in the territory tbe other day on accouut of a aeries of crimes and misrepresentations in Bar ton' county, MoM whereby he secured the hand nf a beautiful and innocent young lady, a valuable watch, thirteen sewing machines and omer uunga ana made away witb them. During tbe twenty days between his marriage to the young lady and his arrest be grossly abused her in a most inhuman, manner. He was taken back to Bar ton county. Judge McCue has ruled that in the collection of interest on mortsrare cou pons, where the same has passed tbe day for payment as given, tne noiaer of the note shall not be allowed a higher rate than that designated in the principal note, juany farmers nave been compelled to pay as high as 12 ner cent on their oouoons for the sim ple reason that tbey have not been able to meet them on tne day wneuaue. This decision, If sustained by the su preme court of the state, will save thousands of dollars to the farmers of Kansas. Quite a flurry of excitement was caused Thursday morning by tbe sep aration of E. Ash and wife, which waa witnessed by a number of people. He took their child away from her and attempted to keep it, but she final ly regained possession of it with the assistance of au officer and with her sister departed on the morning train leaving Ash on the depot platform bellowing and bawling like a good fellow. The separation was caused by his. abuse of ber, so it is said. NEW OKOCKKT HOUSE.
