though her cause is a just one. The best
plan is to do one thing at a time.' ' If God
meant,' he sajn, "for us to fight only one

1 bat way." Oh, moit potent rcasoner!
most consistent theologian! let me refer
you to the lintbook ol Genesis. How many
evils did God give our first parents to deal
Willi .lust on?. Away back in the twi
light of time God said "Thou shalt not cat
ol the fruit or this tree; the day thou catest
thereof thou shalt surely die." Had they
conquered this one evil, its attcnduni hosts
of Mil and death would not have deluged
the world, so by the same processor reason
ing it we conquer the demon or intemper

low in its wake will down alio. We will

none will gainsay. I will go further and say I
that perhaps the only difference bctweeu"G.

"(!. II.' cwdcntly bclieu's in a personal

The amount or liquor sold in the United
States per annum is ertimated from reliable
(statistic- at six hundred millions of dol-la)-,
an amount greater than the cost or all
the rood, and nearly twice as
great as the amount expended for
clothing. The cost to consumers in ten
years is given as six thousand seven hun

HOUSE OF BITTING BROTHERS.
Headquarters lor Everything In Their Line An
Among the many commercial enterprises
of Wichita which commend themselves to
the general notice, not one possesses fea
tures of greater interest tban that of the
one-price clothing house of Bitting Bros.,
which is one of the most extensive and
complete establishments in the state, carry
ing a stock varying in value from CO.00O to
$75,000. It is located on the corner of
Douglas avenue and Market street, one of
the most central points in the city.in a two
story briok ICO feet in depth. This large
space is all completely stocked and full to

lowing oi a clocc es
examination or goods, anil
under its judicious management, assisted by
courteous salesmen, has built up a trade or
great and growing importance. Jloreover,
a very large percentage or the sales are in
a wholesale way, they employing two trav
eling men, and goods arc shipped and ex
pressed to all parts oTthe south, southwest
and west or the state, and even to more dis
tant points. Buying for cash and iu large
lots to supply a large and widely extended
trade, and combining as they do all the de
partments or the business with vigorous
enterprise, they can afford and do offer ex
traordinary low figures on a quality of
goods, nt wholesale or retail, which for
stjle and stiperiorit j' cannot be excelled.
Their goods are all marked in plain figures,
and they have but one price to all, so, be
the purchaser rich or poor from the coun
Hy or town, all are treated alike and buy at
the one price or not at all.
) m The Bitting llrothers are shrewd biisintss
' men and excellent bujcr.-,as their immense,
' varied and carefully selected stock fully in
I dicates. They came to Wichita in the
' spring of '77 Mom Allentown, I'enn., and
! began businct.i hi the room next
door to where is now Wells,
Fargo it Co.'s express oliice, later
, moving into the room now occupied by that
oliice. About five years ago they .moved to
I their present quarters, though the building
' was much smaller than at present. Their
rapidly extending trade made the necessity
for more room imperative, and so last year
a thirty-foot addition was made to their
store, which now gives them a fiooragc of
2X feet, and in all respects one or the best
appointed business houses iu the city. So
creditable a record as is shown iu the history
or this establishment, (ol which A. W. and
C. W. Bitting (brothers) are at the head
and sole proprietors) Tor over seven rears,
growing year by year in fivor with the
trade and public, meeting and" courting
competition from every source, renders
commendation from us unnecessary.
The first to attract the eye of the stranger
who passes up Douglas avenue, arc the
large and handsomely arranged Mont win
dows or this house, which are but a true
index oT the elegant and comprehensive
stock within. On the eastide as j oil enter
may be seen an endless vaiiety of hats and
caps, to the west is an equally elaborate
showing ol furnishing good". On counters
arranged down through the center and main
part or the room is a mammoth display or
clothing or all stvles, sizes and quality, ex
cept the shoddy, which is entirely excluded.
Mounting the stairs iu the icar, or ascend
ing to thu second floor by the elevator, one
is ushered into vvlrit is termed the "child
ren's department," though here is round,
aside lrom a very extensive and complete
stock or children's clothing, trunks, valises,
etc., in endless variety, while at the ex
tieme trout is a good-sied room In which
Is stored unopened case goods, and the sur
plur stock which could not find room on
the shelves and coiinten below. In r.iet,
the facilities or this bouse for doing busi
ness arc unexcelled, and they are glad to
meet competition, and are amply prepared
to defy it. No house in Sedgwick county
stands higher in public estimation, and
by years of straightforward and liberal
dealing they merit the large business they
now enjoy, and which the Kaglk alwavs
the friend of honorable enterprise hopes"
will continue to grow and llourish iu the
future as it lias In the past.

THE NATIONAL CONVENTION.
Chicago, June 3. The National republi
can convention assembled at 12 o'clock,
being called to order by the chairman sa
bin of the I'uited States lepublican central
committee. The eall was read by secretary
John A. 3lartin.
The roll of the states was called on tem
porary chairman, resulting in 432 votes for
Lynch or .Mississippi, ami .iiu ror Clayton
of: Arkansas. Lynch was escorted to" the
platform by Clayton, the convention re
sponding vvitb cheers.
Lynch having delivered a speech or ac
cept'ince the states were called for the
names of the delegates selected to act ou
the committee 011 credentials. Again the
roll was called for the names or delegates
-elected by each Hate for the different com
mittees, whereupon the convention ad
journed at 1:1.") till 11 o'clock to-day.
S. It. TI e proceedings or the conven
tion in detail were sent out to the Mi-.ouri
and Kan-.-is members or the Associated
I'rpss between (land 1) o'clock p. m., but
for some reason which we cannot give, no
report other than the afternoon bulletins
were received by this paper. The Assoc!
ate 1'iess Agent at Kansas City at 11:1." last
night sent out notice that the convention
having been generally covered by the day
report that be would confine himself to
important convention gossip. I'd. K.vci.k.
Chicago, June ii. Tho debate on the
temporary chairmanship was marked
throughout by great earnestness and ap-platt-c
or the speakers on both sides was
frequent. Mr. Benjamin, of Arkansas,
spoke upon the record ol .Mr. Clayton in
his state. He said: The Hon. Powell
Clayton, iu ISfiS, was governor of the state
of Arkansas. It is a well-known fact in
history that all over the southern
states there was organized what is known
as a kuktttt Ulan, aud there ha- been
killed, and wounded, and whipped, by this
kl.in and others, more southern republicans
than were killed iu the eutire war than
were killed during the war of 1812. Powell
Clayton, as governor, called out the
militia ol the state ol Arkansas and he
whipped the KuKlux so that was the end
of them in that state, and never since that
time have you heard anything about the
KuKlux in Arkansas. You find it in everv
other state, but iT they had the nerve or
Powell Clayton and had called out the
militia and suppressed it at the start, hun
dreds and hundreds ol colored men who
have been murdeied by these men, would
be able to be 111 this convention instead of
being in the grave, as they are now.
The chairman then directed a call ol tho
roll of delegates and began vvitb Alabama,
which voted solidly lor Lynch. When the
State of Arkansas was reached, .Mr. Boots,
or Arkana, aroe and said : "lam author
ized by the delegation from Arkansas,
thirteen of whom are pro-ent, General
Powell Clay tun being ab-ent, that they cast
the thirteen votes or the delegatio'n for
Loud calls for the roll.
The chairman directed the 'ecretarv to
finili the reading of the roll
When the name or Itcnj iTfiiu Harrison, or
Indiana, was called Mr. Thompson, or In
diana, said the delegate who represents
at large the State or Indiana, in place ol
General Ilarri-ou, iMr. Koelker. General

or Mr. Lynch was then made unanimous.
The committee then e-corted Mr. Lynch
to the chair.
After the adjournment, the chair -tated

"Vhcti the call was completed Powell
Cla)ton was the centre of observation as he
mounted a chair at the ticatt tpf th'c Ar
kansas delegation, and with a'degree or de
liberation anu calmness, wuicli was scarcely
to be anticipated tinder the circumstances,
announced that he was not present when
his name was called, and that he desired to
cat his vote for his opponent.
The announcement of the result of the
ballot for temporary chairman was the sig
nal for a general outburst. Delegates rose,
climbed upon chairs, swung their bats,
handkerchiefs, canes and umbrellas in the
air and cheered lustily, and when it sub.
sided, Gov. Clavton. still with great appar
ent ealmnes", moved to make the choice
About the only other points to prick the
foot or observation were when W. (J. Don
nan, or Iowa, presented a voluminous me
morial lrom the National W'omaus' Chris
tian Temperance Union, and was rewarded
by the clipping or gloved hands in the
galleries, and when Leslie V. Itusell, or
XcwYorki presented a resolution empow
ering the committee on resolutions to re
ceive aud consider the memorial from the
Irish National League or America upon the
question or proprietorship oT land in the
United States by aliens.
The states surrendered the land trust to
the national government, and it is chiefly
through these laud grants by corporations
which have proved themselves superior to
popular control that a danger which would;
ha e been averted by eousntutional prohi-
bition has stealthily and silently fastened
Itscir upon our country; namely, the crea
tion of au immeusc absentee landlordism by
which the riehes or your soil aud the results
or the hardy labor or our citizens are to
be drained out or tlie country to swell the
fortunes oT hereditary monopolists who
hate our institutions and despise our laws,
and who, by the connivance or the bene
ficiaries or our mistakeu generosity, are iu
legal posessiou of at least 20,000,000 acres or
our soil, and we have seen the effect oTthc
system or great estates, which Is now steal
ing all over our western domain. Ta have;
seen it in Ireland and in I'gypt, aud If 'tlfo
legi-latiTc power oT our government docs
not forestall violence by law, the Indus
trious tillers or our prairies, and the hardy
dclvers in our mines, will combine to rid
the country by such means as they tlnil
available or a cur-e too malignant.
Powell Clayton was selected by the
national committee lor temporary chair
man. Some members t that committee
voted for him on personal grounds, that he
had long been conueeted with the commit
tee as repic-cntativo from Arkansas, and
without knowing that the action involved
any political meaning whatever, otherwise
the contest that ensued would have been
avoided in the selection oT some other
member. Those responsible for bringing
Clayton forward had not calculated on the
convention overruling the action of the
committee as precedent wercall for approv
ing such nominations. The independents
decided to make an issue on the se-
lection and formed a combination with the
Arthur men for that purpose. The votes
were cast largely on this isue, but not all
o.iuein.as si me Ariiiur men voteu tor
