HOPE-DEAF THURSDAY, . NOVEMBER 24 1881. Coal bufeiness ia brisk. The state reform school opeocd at To pe k a last Jonc baa thirty inmates. On. dit: That aereral palatial residen ces will go up in Emporia next summer. C. A. Colo will furnish the ornamental plaster wort; for Whitley's opera house. Culver & Buckner have moved their office to The News block front room up stairs. - The mercury vindicated ten degrees above zero at T o'clock last Saturday morning. D. Thomas & Co. have secured the contract for carpeting the tew Fifth Av enue hotel. The Wandering Btsx band will give s festival at Jay's opera house on thanks- giring evening. That is a good sidewalk in front of the lots of Messrs. Howe and Hughes on Merchants street. Mr. Millikcn received orders Fri day to prepare plans for a Catholic cem etery near Hartford. batnuel Thomas is putting down a subklantial sidewalk in front of the Whitley opera bouse. Mr. Moreliouae is pushing the carpen ter work on the new M. E. church. The roof will soon be on. Johnaon is happy. ' He siya: "I can look every way now and am not pester ed with dogs nor cows.' Mrs. Dillard baa moved her millinery istablishment to Atyoo & Herman's new building on Sixth avenue. Tlie course of study for the rural schools was mailed by County Superin tendent Wharton Saturday. Tbe Normal has 800 students, a larg er number than has ever been enrolled before at this time of the year. A very little more snow wilt bring out the cutters sod the young men with regular girls and small salaries. It is estimated that 15,000 people pass over the Santa Fe road each week en route to Arizona and New Mexico. Stockmen bave been two or three weeks later commencing winter feeding this season than they were lust year. The Baden furniture factory has turned out a Terr handsome and convenient desk made to order for J. D. Holden. Osborne & Jeremy- bave secured the contract for putting in the furnace and gas pipes at the Whitley opera bouse. The young couple who were observed swinging on tbe gate last night looking for the new comet evidently mean bust ncss. On account of the heavy increase ol business on the A. T. & F. road, the com. pany are building new yards at several places. ; ..- Betliual Allen, residing' near Neosho Rapids, died Thursday of typhoid fever, at tho age of 70 years, and was buried Friday. The Sunday school of the colored Baptist church held a festival at the Bigger store room on Commercial street Thursday evening. The jury in the railroad case of Clara Moore vs. the Santa Fe railroad compa ny, disagreed after being out the greater part of the night. . Mr. Haona's new residence opposite the M. E. church is rapidly approach ing completion, and will be a substan tial improvement. Lyon county is realizing an immense amount of freo advertising out of that panther which Eph Brown saw in the timber on the poor farm. Mr. Merrick, who used to operate a re pair shop on Uie present site of the gas works, is building a foundry and ma chine shop at Newton. A party in this city who received a car load of horses from Missouri Friday morning found one of them dead upon the arrival of the train at thia plarje. The Leavenworth Times says that Robert Mulligan was elected surveyor in Lyon county. It teems strange that we should not have beard of this before. The amateur bind is among the things that were. A portion oi the members have joined tho K. T. Band recently or ganized under the leadership of Mr. John Egan. It is extremely pathetic to reflect that all butono of the hungry Democrats wno are legging for the position of deputy shcrilf under Mr. Ryan are doomed to disappointment. Osborne and Jeremy have torn out the partition which formerly ran across their stove store and .have now one of tho largest and best rooms for showing their stock in the town. It costs 27 cents to carry a letter from Emporia to Patagonia. In view of this fact it is not surprising that there should be so little postal communication be tween the two points. One of the Whitley opera house rooms is to be occupied by a hew drag establishment, and another by a gro scry. We bave not beard what the third is to be ussd for. - Holmes Si Holdea have leased the east room in the new Iloltlerman block on Sixth avenuo and will remove their office to that place. They could not have secured better quarters. The furniture for the new Fifth Av enue hotel will be supplied by W. T. Soden, of this city. Mr. Powell, the proprietor, purchased a parlor suite last week at a cost of $225, and a bedroom set for $200. Win. Rosenbury, who was arrested on Monday for selling bricks which were alleged to be mortgaged to E. F. Sprague, was discharged by Justice Bacheller, for want of sufficient evidence to sua tain the charge. The Emporia Social Quadrillo club have Issued invitations to a dance to be given at Jay 'a Opera nouse on Friday evening, November 25th. Ibe party will include married and young people and ia expected to be an occasion of great social enjoyment. Owing to the fact that the hall is en gaged for an entertainment on the even of the 23th, the data announced in tbe invitations extended by tbe Emporia Social Quadrille Club, the party will be held on Wednesday evening, November 23rd. President Welch, of tbe Normal, will be interested to learn that, according to the Leavenworth Times he has resigned his position and will remove to Topeka and engage in the practice of law. The place to bear the news is evidently away from borne. The report goes that a man was bitten by a mad-dog at Severy the other even ing, and that he went all the way to Howard to find a mad-stone, but his er rand proved fruitless. We had supposed that hydrophobia was barred by tbe statute of limitations. A large proportion of the December taxes bave already been received at the treasurer's office. An encouraging indi cation of the general prosperity of the county is recognized In the promptness and in many cases eagerness, which has been shown by property holders in this direction this season. ' . We learn that the Franciscan Sisters contemplate the erection of a hospital in tbe rear of the convent on Cottonwood street. Means for that purpose are now being secured, and tbe work will be commenced In tbe spring. Emporia is booming from a benevolent as well as a business stand-point. If they have polled Angus cattle, wby not polled China pigs! Commonwealth. They do in countries where there are acorns. Qtre us a harder one. We trust the announcement that tbe boys at tbe reform school at Topeka have been neatly uniformed in gray suits and cadet caps will not bave the effect of stimulating crime among the youth of Kansas. x Joe Waters baa written a history of Topeka for Sam Radges' directory which Is pronounced by tbe Commonwealth to be the neatest thing tbe author has ever written. We'll venture that it is spicy enough if Joe tells in it all be knows about people and things at the capital A -large and interesting educational meeting waa addressed by Ed 8. Water bury and Dr. J. J. Wright at Neosho Rapids on Wednesday evening. Tbe school at that place is under the direc tion of T. A Rogan, and is reported to be in a flourishing condition. The Emporia street railway company bave filed their written acceptance of tbe provisions of the ordinance granting them the franchise to establish lines in in this city. The contractor expects to commence work on the Commercial street line early in the spring. Commonwealth: The new cars that were received by the A , T. & S. F. R. R. Co., a fear dtys agj, are higher than the old ones, and in passing the depot bave torn away a part of the roof of the . abed east of the depot. It was found neces sary to cut of about aix inches of the roof. ' The coal dealers of this city complain of a scarcity of this fuel and cay that it is quite difficult to secure a sufficient quantity to meet the demands of the lo cal trade. When tbe Emporia and St Louis railroad opens up the vast re sources of the Rich Hill coal fields to Emporia, this trouble will be obviated. The twentieth annual meeting of the State Teachers' association, which is to meet in Topeka on the 27th day of December, and continue in session for four days, promises to be one . of the best meetings of tbe kind ever held there, as some of the best educators in the west will bo present. The Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe railroad company, it is said is making a complete collection of all the building stone, flagging, firo clays and ochres along tho line and having them neatly prepared for a permanent exhibit at the Smithsonian Institution, Washington, space for which has been allotted by the institution The Musical Union, at a meeting held at the rooms of Mrs. E. A Moore last week, decided to begin rehearsals at once, with a view to producing the com ic opera of Olivetti some time about the holidays. The cooperation of all the old members is earnestly desired and new accessions to the Uniou will be gladly received. Through standard gauge passenger trains are to commence running on the Denver and Rio Grando railroad be tween Denver and Pueblo, to connect with the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe at Pueblo, December 1. Tire third rail having been put down, this is a stand ard gauze track from Kansas City to Denver via the Santa Fe line. J W. volmer, whose arrest for vio- lating the liquor law has been noted in thia paper, was tried before Justice Bacheller Thursday. He was convicted and sentenced to pay a fine of $300 and costs, but took an appeal to tho district court, O. PfelTerle and Casper Ellison being accepted as surities on the bond which he gave for his appearance. Let the ball be kept rolling. Card of Thanka. Editoiis News: Pemit me, through your columns to express my thanks to those whose prompt action arrested the threatened danger by fire to the Chica go lumber yard, also to-the bouse in which I live. It is most gratifying to feel that the citizens of Emporia aro al ways on hand to help each other. Yours Truly, S. Gukbkier. An Empcria coal dealer writes to the Commonwealth as follows: I havo been handling coal in Kansas tor eight years, and I find that short weight is always the rule. I have had cars come two tons short. If we could get full weights, could get the coal promptly and plenty of it, we could sell at a cent per bushel cheaper than we do now. I would not handle coal at all only that it helps the lumber business tn which we are engaged. Topeka Capital: Superintendent Eckles has secured for the thirty-three boys at bis reformatory establishment. north of this city, very neat and comfort able gray jeans uniforms. The cap is the regulation gray cadet cao. and tbo pants will bave tho distinguishing mark of a black stripe down the side. Mr, Eckles reports everything moving along smoothly at the reform school. Quite a number of visitors were present the last visitors day. Tbe only and original Volmer was ar rested again Saturday on a warrant from the district court, for selling liquor in violation of law. The old man tried to escape from the officers by locking bis door and betaking himself up stairs, but Mr. Romaine and Marshal Bell were "ou to his racket," as it were, and cut off bis retreat. Tbo only opening Emporia ha' for Volmer is the one be filled for so many weeks in the county jail wheu he attempted to run a gin mill in this city before. Don't forget the Thanksgiving dinner to be held in the new Whitley opera house by tbe ladies of tho Congrega tional church. Roast turkey, chicken, meats of all kinds wilh cranberry sauce, celery, plum pudding, mince, apple and pumpkin pie in short, all that goes to make tho feast complete will bo found upon the tables. Come with your fami ly and friends and no effort will be spared to make the occasion a joyful one. Oysters will be served in the even ing. A little boy named Courtney Car baugh left his homo at Shannon, Illinois, on the 22d of October and has not educe been heart of. He is twelve years old, has dark eyea and hair, and the thumb of bis left hand is off at tho first joint. He was dressed in a dark suit of clothes when be left home. We publish this no tice at the request of bis stricken parents who will bo rejoiced t bear anything touching tho whereabouts of their lost child. Address J. II. Csrbaugh, Shan non, Illinois. The engineer corps of the Kansas City and Emporia railroad received the out fit last week for which they had been waiting. It consists of five large tents, camp chairs, a drafting board and other necessary appliances, which were loaded on to a two-horse wagon last Thursday and taken to Neosho Rap ids, where tbe headquarters of the party will be for a few days. The work of lo cating the line is progres-ung sttisfac torily under the direction or Chief En gineer Beadle, who seems to be tbe right man in the right place. In reply to severs 1 questions asked in reference to little Alta May Rich ards, we would say - that shewas tea months and four days old at the time of her death. On Saturday, Sept. 24th, she was awarded the firstpremium at our last county fair, which was a Royal St. John sewing machine, and on Monday follow ing her photograph wa. taken, she wear ing the dress she bad worn at the fair. On Thursday evening Sept. 29th, she was killed by the cyclone. Her photo graphs, which are perfect representa tions of her, are now for sale at the store of L D. Fox & Co at 25 cents each, the proceeds to be used to purchase a bead stone to mark her grave in Maplewood cemetery. The "Musical People" advertised ia thia issue of tbe paper is an excellent little magazine, well filled with interest ing and instructive reading matter of pocular valae to "musical people." Each number contains several hecU of good music too. - Arkansas City Traveler: D. W Eastman, treasurer of Lyon county, Kansas, notifies non-residents of the amount of their taxes, and sends blank forms to enumerate tho lands or lots you wish to pay on. Also a brief snynopsis of the tax law. Accommodating tit at tire r, that. . Music scholtrs, and especially those who arc studying the art of singing will find interesting news in the card of Mr. John Howard in this issue. It is said that by the "Howard Method" singers may take lessons by mail wilh as much profit and success as if they went direct to Mr. Howard's office in New York. 8. Emory Lanphcar, of Hartford, for merly correspondent of Tiik News at that place, arrived in Emporia last Fri day wilh a charming young wife, nee Miss Lillio Harris, of Ashland, Nebras ka. The nuptials took place at the home of tho bride on Wednesday, No vember 16(h. We join wilh the Doctor's many friends in Lyon county in extend ing congratulations to him and his fair bride. Tho following ruling by State Super intendent Specr is respectfully submit ted to whom it may coucern : "A teach ers' contract entered into by the district board previous to the annual meeting does not bind the board a j newly con stituted. Tbe annual meeting has cer tain stated powers regarding the em ployment of teachers ; and ; it is only af ter the electors of the district in such meeting shall have left such matters un determined, that the board has power to determine the same and proceed to the election of a teacher." . .. . The popularity of tho local advertis ing department of the Daily News is due, ina large measure wo believc.to the fact, that in addition to a thorough cir culation, the prices charged are very low and uniformly one rrice to all three cents a line. It is much more sat isfactory to us ai well as to tbe advertis er to have a rate so cheap and popular that every merchant can use - the columns of Tub News - quite freely, than it would be to havo one-half or one-third the number of lines at five or tcu cents a line. Ia the Weekly News the rate for lo cals is uniformly ten cents; for wants and business notices in tho five cent col umn, five cents a line. It is useless to ask us to vary from these rates, as wc believe in treating everybody alike aad making no special charges. ' , Topeka Capital: Not quite a year ago a tramp named Montgomery shot Harry Morgan, a conductor on the Santa Fe road, from which wound Morgan died in the course of a few weeks. Mont gomery was riding without paying his fare, so Morgan put him off. The former thereupon drew bis pistol and deliberately phot the conductor. .The other day, at Great Bend, the wise jury which sat on the case solemnly declared that Montgomery bad committed no crime and that Morgan's death was due to careless medical treatment. This jury did not say that bad Morgan not received the wound the doctors would have killed him. - Such verdicts as this arc a farce, a travesty on justice, land opt-u the way to countless murders!' af fording every possible opportunity lor tho assassin to cscapo. Commonwealth: Tho Hankla Broth crs, of the Fitlh Avenuo,' bave leased the new Hotel Windsor, and take pos session as soon as the building is com pleted and acceptfd from the contrac tors, which will be about Christmas. It is their intention to furnish the build- iug in the latest modern style, and in the very best manner possible. ; Tbe old Tefl House has forever lost its identity io this splendid Hotel Windsor, and while the average Kanson "will sigh for the days that will never come back," in connection' with their sojourn with the walls of the old rookery, yet they will rejoice with Topeka when they be hold the stately edifice that stands so majestic on tbe site of the old ruins: A history of all the 8ayin;rs and doings within the walls of the old Kansas po litical headquarters, would make a book and one too, that would be read by every body. But then the old laud marks must disappear and give place to the re quirements of au advanced civilization. "The dark receaseb" of this political pilgrim's home, have all disappeared yet the many happy or unhappy memo ries that cluster around it will live for all time. A Fropoaed Cbatn.e of Time ou the Howard Ilraccli. Eureka Herald: A request very large ly signed has gone up from noward to the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe offi cials, asking that the time of the train from Emporia to that place be changed so as to come down lroui Emooria in the morning and go back ia the afternoon. At present the train leaves Howard about five o'clock in the morning, and on the return leaves Emporia at half past four la tbe afternoon, and reaches Howard somewhere between 10 o'clock that even ing and 4 the next morning. Under the proposed new arrangement persons coming from Kansas City could leave there on the night train which 'gets to Emporia by 6 in the morning, and those going to Kansas Citv or : other points east could take the night train at Emporia. People on this line could thus spend the entire day in Kansas City and lie absent only two nights in addi tion. At present it takes aday to go and a day to return making three days it is necessary to be absent for - any one wuo has business requiring a day there. In the same way a full day could be spent in Topeka with an alisencc from home f f wnly two nights in addition. There would doubtless be am pie time for business nt Emporia bc tweeu the arrival of the train in tho evening and its return in the morning! There may he objections such as do not just now strike us, but individually we believe we would favor tbe change. We understand the company will not con sent to mnkc tbe change unless the plan is favored by our people. We suppose an expression of their preferenca will be ascertained in due lime. Mora Koine) Than Fir. . On Wednesday night of last week at about half-past 11 o'clock, the alarm of fire was sounded by the : bell on tbo engine house, and - at tbe same time a bright glow in the direction of the Chicago Lumber yard induced the belief that the flames proceeded from that place. The high wind which pre vailed caused many people to fear a general spread of the dc&truclive ele ment, and large numbers - of citizens who turned out of their beds were great, ly relieved to learn that the fire was caused by a spark from a railroad loco motive, which Ignited the grass in and and about Humboldt park, and that the flames bad been, extinguished after a vigorous fight on the part of those who " arrived first on the grounds. . ' . One of - the - - hose Carts was run out but reached the scene of the conflagration too late to be of any strvice. It is extremely fortunate that the flames did not reach the lumber yaid, as it would bare been next to im possible with tbo gale thnt was blowing lo bave arrrested the fire had it succeed ed in "raining any headway.

A I'alnful Aecldeat Last Thursday aa David Stone, the pop ular head clerk at Thomas & Jones' grocery store was engaged in arranging some goods in the back room, an iron well pulley fell from the joist where it was banging and struck Mr. Stone on the bead, indicting an ngly gaah several inches in lengtli,aud causing him the most acute pain. A few minutes after tho accident be became insensible but by tbe use of proper restoratives he soon revived sufficiently to be taken in a car-ri.-iiru to the residence of , J. F. Drake. Mr..iouc is one of tbo most .wor thy joung men in Emporia, and bis many friends in this city trust that bis injury may riot develop any serioiu( re sults. - Wedding lie I la Cards issued to the friends of the con-' trading parties announce the marriage of Charles Ryder, druggist of this city. and Cora, only daughter of Mr. E. Bor ton of Emporia, tho nuptials having been celebrated at Cincinnati on Wed nesday cf last week. Tbe happy couple are expected home on tiianksgivingday, and upon their arrival will receive the ar dent congratulations of hosts of friends in this city. ' Mr. Ryder is one of the solid yonng business men of Emporia and is in every way worthy of the charming lady whom he has been so happy as to secure for a wife. .:The brido is one - of the most popular young ladies ia Emporia, bor personal graces only ' being equaled by : tnoise ., winning : attributes of mind , and. -. heart ' which - have won for her so large a placelo the hearts of all who know her. The newly wedded pair begin life together under the. moat flattering auspices and the wish of this community is that the future may bring to them the fullest realization of their most sanguine dreams of happincae. ' i Heath, of Jeaale Ijifcln.r Tho many friends of Mr. and Mrs. A G. Lakin will be deeply pained to learn of the death of their Utile daughter Jessie, who departed this life at an early hour Saturday morning, in the tenth year of her ase. Some weeks ago she waa stricken down with that terrible scourge, diphtheria, and fur some days her life was despaired of. She rallied, however, and it was hoped by bcr fond parents that she was on tho road to recovery, when it became appar ent that tho deadly-malady had af fected the vital organs as to render her restoration more thau doubtful, and death came to the relief of t'ao patient sufferer after she had accomplished her allotted period of languish! ng and pain. " The' deceased wa3 idolized by her parents, and on her centered tbe fondest hopes of the home of which she was the light and joy. Brief as was her earthly sojourn, she had lived long -enough to entrench herself in tho affections of all who knew bcr, and tho hearts in which her image -Is enshrined are' sorrow stricken by tiio dispensation which robs them of their treasure.' But while . Death lies on her like an untimely frost Upon the sweetest flower of all thu QcM, ll cannot obliterate the sweet memory of her pretty, little ways, or quench the hope that her budding graces will uti fold under brighter skies thau thoee which span this world of pain and dtvilh ' The funeral took' place from Ibe family residence at the corner of Stale street and Sixth 'Trrcnue, Sunday afternoon at 2 o'clock.

Commonwealth: Some time in Octo ber, last a clothing firm in New York city shipped a bill of goods to Messrs, Illfeld & Co., at Santa Fe, and when the boxes were received tbe consignees - re ported a shortage ot $ 150. Tho matte was traced up.and the goods found to have been in good condition, and apparently all right, when they came into the hands of the A. T. & 3. F. R. R. company. The loss was thereupon reported to General Freight Agent Goddard, and a demand for their value made upon the company, Tracers -were sent out, and the agents along the line ordered to try to find the goods aad apprehend the thief. At last a man living in Chase county was.sus picioned and at the request of the agent at Pcabody, John Counagber,' alias Frank Davis,- was arrested. He waa placed in the jail at Cottonwood, which is a very unsafe affair,, and mauaged to jump from the second story of the build ing and make good his escape. He made bis way to Las Animas, -where hi was re-arrested and again made a desper ate attempt to get'frae. When the sher iff brought his supper ' to him," he managed to get the sheriff ia the cell and lock Ibe door. The sheriff fired two or three shots at Davis, but missed ldai, and Davis, going into the sheriff's room, procured a revolver aad went back to the ja:l and tried to shoot him. Tha re volver proved to be not loaded,, how ever, and no harm was done, and before be could get away tho deputy sheriff ar rived and . ordering him to throw up his hands, secured bird. Davis was heavily ironed, when taken to Cottonr wood Falls for examination, having on handcuffs and leg-irons and a steel ring about his neck, to which was attached , a chain. - He was taken before tho justice on Wednesday afternoon, when the case was continued until December Cth. The. goods' wero' found, at ..Walton, where they had been shipped by ex press, and uooa them a Ur, which. Dus- tan, who was sent to look after the af fair, took to Kaaea City, and learned. after showing it to a traveling man, that they belonged to the firm who had lost the goods. 'Dustan went to Cottonwood night before last and returned with the goods yesterday afternoon. ' '-'- The Normal Literary Contest .The contest of the two literary societies at the Normal Friday evening, was ono which excited universal applaune" and commcnaation.
