OUR CITY WATER WORKS.
To the Editor of IheEagU.
Dear Sib. Since the fire at the H. E.
church, which occur red a lew weeks ago,
I have been considarably amused as well as
surprised at the expression made use of
concerning the origin ot the fire, also the
inefflcacy of the water works, etc. We are
told that usually there Is no pressure in the
mains at night, and on that occasion there
was not sufficient pressure to produce a
good fine stream, also that the water fur
nished for the city is drawn from the Liu
tie river, and consequently is not fit for use
and many other like expressions.
For the benefit of those UBing water from
the water works for culinary purposes, we
will state here that there is not a word of
truth in any of the above assertions. That
the water is not "drawn" from the Little
river but from a well 30 feet in diameter
and 20 feet deep. In the bottom ot this
well are 84 driven wells or tubes'froru 16 to
22 feet long, from which flow clear, cold,
pure water from a depth of 40 feet.
By analyzing this water it Is
found to contain a small per cent,
of iron and magnesia, which arc Bald to be
very healthful, and is preferred by many
persons t o the water underlying the city
on account of the very imperfect drainage
or our place. The water is pumped from
this well and forced through wooden mains
direct to the consumers. The pressure is
obtained by forcing the water in the pipes
until it becomes packed closer than a polit
ical ballot box, when it begins to rise in
the stand pipe. The higher it rises the
greater the pressure until full, when a fire
pressure is "on" that will throw :i stream,
or several streams, eighty feet high, and
with present capacity will maintain four or
six of them from as many different places.
I don't claim that we can bore a hole in a
stone wall or knock the spots off UarnumVi
elephant, but do claim a very efficient fire
protection for buildings such as wc have
here at present. When they grow to be
four or six stories high, our venerable city
fathers will have to look up a higher priced
protector in the shape ot a steamer to reach
upper stories, just as all other cities do.
At the present time wc would be glad to
have a horse to dr.iw the hose carts to and
from fires so that the men will not bo tired
out before they reach the flro ; also, some
thing in the way or an inducement to keep
the boys together.
Some improvement could be made in the
hose company in the way of drill, but so
long as there is nothing but fault found
with their work, this state of affairs will
continue. As our city has been very lucky
iu not having serious conilagrations,itdoes
not seem to me to be sufficient reason for
negligence in providing for the future. In
writing this article I have only the interest
of our growing city in view, as well as to
correct some of the false impression:! that
have been made by the unprogressive of
of our times. Very truly yours,
J. It. Myeks,
Engineer in Charge.
The Detroit Free Preu pays the following
compliment to Charlotte Thompson, the
great emotional actress, who will appear in
this city on the evenings of May 29th and
"Last night one of the best American
actresses living, Miss Charlotte Thompson,
again visited our city, in her world famed
impersonation, "Jane Kyre." This lady
was welcomed back with a full bouse, which
she richly deserved. Her acting was grand.
In the emotional scenes sho carried the
house by storm, and in her comedy scenes
she captivated her auditors. "Jano Eyre,"
as presented by Miss Thompson, is one of
the best comedies before the public. Her
support is unusually good.
Here is another warning against the boy
mania for the revolver. Mr Hambra's two
boys, of West Wichita, having procured a

parents, started out to hunt a job of work.
About 9 o'clock yesterday morning they
thought they would have a little amuse

The second renditiou of the Union Spy
by local talent, at the opera house last even
ing, drew out quite a large crowd, aud by
8 o'clock, the time at which the curtain was
rung up, the seating capacity of the house
was about exhausted. As most ot our
readers know, the plot of this drama is laid
in a Northern home at the time of the break
ing out of the icbellion, and it was
the author's aim to follow aud im
pertonatc each member of that house
hold and each character at that
time introduced through the vicissi
tudes of war, up to the time when civil
strife should cease aud peace be declared.
To do this successfully and carry out the
author's ideas require uot alone natural
adaptability for the character taken, but an
intelligent conception of the part assigned.
In srlcctiiig the present cast, Col. Temple
displayed much good judgment and ripe ex
perience, and wc doubt it the strong and
emotional parts ot the drama hae ever
been so well brought out by any amateur
latent in the state.
Perhaps the most difficult impersonation
in the play is that of Xellic Morton,
who by turns is actuated by the
tcudercst emotions and at other times
trembles with burprc-"cd scorn. This part
was assumed and most intelligently carried
by Mrs. Col. Stewart, as was that of Al
bert Morton by W. P. Campbell and Mrs.
Morton by Sirs. King, and Mrs. Annie Mor
ton by Mrs. McMillcn in fact wlllicry
few exceptions the pirts were all well car
ried, the greatest objection to the play
being Its extreme length. The
tabluaux were well arranged, and
much better than those had by
half of the traveling companies.
The Union Spy will be repeated again this

A DAISY DAILY.
Marsh Murdock'g new daily at Wichita
is a daisy. It is a four-page, eight columns
to the page, paper, aud as neat and well
made up as the weekly edition has always
been, which is sufficient praise. The Mux
dock have done well in refraining from
starting a daily till the city and country
surrounding it had people enough to sus
tain such an enterprise. They have for
years been importuned to do what they
have now done. The temptation has becu
great and the demand almost imperative
tor tne list live years to issue a daily. They,
however knew too well the cost of such
an enterprise. If they had started a daily
wnca me people tuougm tney ougat to, tbc
probabilities are that it wouid have had
a sickly existence of a fewmonths and then
been compelled to stop. Now, however, it
the people of Wichita stand by them as by
the number of advertisements in the firs't
issue they have commenced, the Eagle will
be a success. But to make it certain to
succeed, the patronage now so generously
given must be continued.- No one not in
the business can form any idea of tbc ex
pense of getting out such a paper as the
Eagle promises to bs. In Marsh, the Ea
gle has a good writer, in Roll, a good busi
ness manager. We wish them all the suc
cess they deserve. Commonwealth.
THE NEW DAILY AT WICHITA.
The Daily Wichita Eagle made its bow
to the public this morning, as we learn by
a letter received from that place. We
await its appearance -here with interest.
The publishers have made one of the best
weekly papers in Kansas or any other
state, and they know enough about journal
ism to make a success of anything which
they undertake in this line.
Their civy editor Is Moses Stone, who has
been conuccted with "the News for the past
three years in tbc capacity of foreman and
reporter. There is no man in Kansas who
has a keener nose or sharper eye for items
than "Mose," and there will bo precious
little going ou in Wichita that be will not
be "on to." His success is only condi
tioned upon his health, which has been
much impaired of late by rheumatism, and
wc sincerely trust that ho may overcome
this difficulty and find himself strong
enough to fill the position tor which he is
otherwise so well qualified. We wish him
and the Eagle the fullest measure of suc
cess. Emporia Daily Xeiet.

The first number or the Wichita daily
Eagle is before us. It is a bright, hand

The weekly Eagle has long been one of
the btst weeklies in the state, and the same
newspaper ability will no doubt place tbc
daily Eagle upon a successful and perma
nent basis. Tbc Capital most heartily
wished the Eagle success. It is backed
by the most enterprising town of Kansas,
full of energy, life and business, and the
rich valley of tbo Arkansas, an empire In
itself, will continue to build Wichita as
the commercial metropolis of the south
west. The Eagle will contribute much
to the future growth of the city of Wich
ita, and we can only wish that its editors
may rcip .-ubstantial benefits for the years
of hard work their enterprise will demand.

Emporia Yesterday on an Unequivocal
Emporia, May 22- At the Republican
delegate convention, for the Fourth con
gressional district, held in this city to-day,
Hon. Thos. Ryan, of Topeka, was nomic
ated by acclamation as cannidate for re
election to the national bouse of represen
tatives amid great enthusiasm. The follow
ing resolutions were adopted without a dis
senting vote : '
Resolved, By the Republicans of the
Fourth congressional district, in conven
First, That we re-afilrm our devotion to
tbc principles of the Republican party that
ba e in the past brought thejnatlon and peo
ple a degree of prosperity without a parallel
Second, We are opposed to the doctriue
of free trade, and are in favor of n tariff so
adjusted as to protect American labor, pro
mote home manufacturers and foster home
markets for the products of American ag
riculturists. Third, Wc demand iu the Interest of the
farmers, business men and shippers of the
country, that congress shall regulate, by
proper and stringent legislation, interstate
railway commerce on a basis alike just to
the carrier and to the business interests of
the country, to the end that unjust discrim
inations and extortionate shipping rates
shall be obviated and prevented.
Fourth, Wo are iu favor of tbo imme
diate forfeiture of all unearned land grants
hitherto held by railroad companies, and
demand the reservation of the balance of
the public domain lor actual settlers and
especially for those who risked their lives
iu defense of an imperiled country.
Fifth, Wj endorse Hon. Thos. Ryan as a
faithful, honest and wise public servaut and
commend him for his upright and manly
conduct as the repre-cntative of this dis
trict in congress.
Sixth, We heartily endorse the wise, able
aud patriotic administration of President

The seuato resumed the consideration of
the labor statistics bill. Senator VanWyek's
proposed amendment to the labor bureau
bill was read, providing that the chief of
bureau shall be identified with the laboring
Inalls said every fiber of his being was
iu sympathy with labor,but this was a bill
which he could not support in its present
shape. The committee on labor, he said,
seemed to think that there was all over lhi
land an intense, eager avidity for suculent,
juicy aud nutritious volumes of statistics.
He could imagine the comfort with which
"the weary plowman would wend his way
homeward if he knew that on passing the
post-olllcc ho should secure a volume of
statistics. lie thought the senate could
bow down and worship that bill without
being guilty or idolatry because it resem
bled nothing in heaven above, nor in the
earth beneath, nor in the waters under the
earth. Ir, however, the bill was properly
amended he would support It.
Senator A'anWyck said that communism
of capital was more dangerous than com
munism of labor. Six railroad kings could
sit in parlors, in New York, and regulate
everything in this country.
Senator Blair replying to ingalls said the
crlticisn of that senator had been simply a
piece ol elaborate, but trivial buffunery.
The senate took up the bill to prohibit
the mailing of newspapers and other publi
cations containing lottery advertisements.
Senator West objected to its considera
tion and the senate, by a vote ol 22 yeas to
29 nays, decided not to consider the bill and
it goes to the foot of the calender.
Senator Van Wycksuhmitted an amend
ment to be disposed of at the prropcr time
extending the provisions of the latter bill
so as; to prohibit the mailing of newspa
pers ot other publications containing nd-verti'-ements
or notices of the sales of rail
road, mining or other stocks, of corpora
tions, or buy margins or puts and calls,
or any agency thereof, or any notice, report
or statement of any such sales.
Bill passed authorizing the construction
of bridege across the 31issUsippl river at
Senator Morgan from committee on lor
eign relations submitted a proposed
amendment to the conselor and diplomat
ic bill appropriating $.'i0,000 to enable the
president to open commercial or diplomat
ic intercourse with the Congo country.
Senator Blair afterwards withdrew the
word buffooury and raised a laugh by sug
gesting that the reporter put In Its place
some word not so offensive, but which
would mean as nearly as polble the same
Senator Sherman suggested the substitu
tion of the word department for bureau.
Senator iilair adopted the suggestion, and
moved to make the title or the hill "a bill
to establish a department of labor."
Pending rurtber debate the senate ad
Senator Coke's bill passed amending the
act creating a northern judicial district
at Texas, and providlug for holding terms
of court in the western judicial district or
Texas at El Pa-o. It provides for holding
terms of court twice a year : at Browns

Washington. May 22. Mr. Uorr rising to
question of privilege, said that no ex-mem-
Lber of congress had a right to the floor it be
takes it and then abuses its privileges by
attempting to influence legislation here. I
now rise to say it has been brought to my
notice by a democratic member of this
House that an ex-member of congress, the
father of one of the litigants in this case.
has been on the floor of the Honse solicit
ing members, sending for them and taking
them into consultation and attempting to
ifluense them in their vote on this case.
It this time must not go nnnoticed.
I deiire to say, replied Mr. Randall, that
the father ot the contestant would he un
natural if be did not take the deepest in
terest in his son's contest. Applause on
the democratic side and derisive laughter
on the republican side. And I stand here
and witness the fact that that gentleman
has exercised the most careful propriety in
connection therewith. Applause ou the
And I waut to say further, broke in Mr.
Blount; that It U a notorious fact, known
by all the members m this floor, that this
rule has been violated lime and time again.
The ex-member of cougrcss in the employ
of the railroad companies and in other in-
crests, have been here importuning tne
members on the floor.
Why did vou not call attention to It? in
quired Mr. Brown of Pennsylvania.
Why have not you -done it? replied
31 r. Blount.
Because I have not known it, retorted
Ob, my dear sir, you arc a very innocent
person, returned Mr. Blount. I want to
add that this rule has been obsolete tor
months and years. It ought to be enforced
and the gentleman from Indiana i certainly
excusable under the circumstance when
the rule has been obsolete in cvt'ry other
Mr. Springer made a point that the rule
related to parsons who were interested In
things pending bi-fore congress It had re
rcicucc to pecuniary Interest tu hired at
torneys coming on the floor and advocating
tbc passage or claims, and it had never been
claimed that it hail any reference to gentle
men who come looking alter th interests
of friends or relatives in contested election
Mr. llorr said he had made the statement
not for the purpose of political claptrap in
credulous laughter on the democratic side,
but because he feared the dignity of the
house aud its rule was being violated, am!
he felt It his duty to call the attention of
the house to the fact. The gentleman from
Pennsylvania had said It was natural for a
father to feel for his son; so it waw, but it
was also natural for him, if he had the
sense of honor be should have, to do it In
a seemly and becoming manner.
And so he has! exclaimed Mr. Randall.
And nut do it, continued Horr, by out
raxing the rulesofthe house, if you don't
believe what I tell you, liucsliS'tto this
matter and I promise to prove a good deal
more than I have stated. No man with a
keen seusc or honor would be lonud mi
this floor doing what be has been doing In
Mr. White of Kentucky moved that ser
geant at arms be directed to arrest Mr.
English and bring him to the bar or the
house to show whether he had violated Its
This motion was received with liughter
and Ma.. White subcqucntly withdrew it,
stating he did so at reqeest of eoiitestee.
Mr. Cox of New then arose to defend his
old friend who bad been insulted, by the
motion . He gave original rule regulating
admission to ex-members to the floor. He
bad originally drawn up rules at a time
when the republican party was rising to
wards the very height of corruption, and
when ex-members came hero to lobby for
railroad grandees, which the democratic
party was now undertaking to forfeit. Ap
plause on the democratic side
Milliken, "Is there any higher tlalm or
mora sacred claim than a title of a member
to his seat."
Mr. Cox I would rather have a man come
here undcrtaclng to present the. claims of
his son honorably to this house than your
mean, sneaking, mercenary that come here
to grau anu raiu mo piioiii; treasury .
