Description of the Whitley Opera Ben J mat Complete in This City. - Among the many valuable and hand some Improvements which have done so much to invite public attention to Empo- rla within, the past two years, none have proved more potent in this direction than the Whitley opera bouse, the im posing structure which has gone up afthe northeast corner of Merchants street and Sixth avenue during the past season This beautiful edifice ia the realization of a dream which has long been cher ished by the people of Emporir, and it is more than gratifiying to feel that the consummation ot what for so many years was merely a vague project like many other possibilities of the future, has so fully met and even transcended popular expectation. The enterprise which has given Em porta such a comely improvement first took definite shape last spring, when the Whitley opera home company, com posed or . Col. H. C. Whit ley, Van. R. Holaus, L. Savery, H. C. Cross and William Martin dale was organized, with Col. Whitley as president and Van R. Holmes as secretary. The eligible site opposite the Hotel Coolidge was secured, and before many weeks after the new com pany had filed its charter, plans and specifications for the proposed im provement had been completed by Mr. C. W. Squires, and a few weeks later the contract for the entire work was let to E. F. Sprague, who has been diligent in the face of many discouragements and perplexities in pushing it to a success ful termination. The structure whose symmetrical pro portions excite the admiration of all beholders, is of brick, the window caps being of cut stone of beautiful finish, furnished by Pickens & Summers. The dimensions are 00x03 feet, the long er side facing Merchants street, and in cluding the main entrance to the opera house. The lower floor Is divided into three business rooms, which face on Sixth avenue, and the solid brick parti tions between them afford an ample support for the floor above and add to the general security of the building which, from roof .to foundation stone, is constructed in the most sub stantial manner, a great desideratum in a house devoted to public amuse ments. The means of egress are abundant, ipcluding a wide stairway, easy of descent on Merchants street, and also one on Sixth avenue leading to the stage which could be utilized to advan tage in case of fire. By way of addi tional protection against this destructive element, a two-inch water pipe ho lieen carried to the second flsmr, and can be brought into service at a momsnt's no tice, and the further precaution has been taken to size the sceuery with a fire proof preparation which renders it impervious to quick combustion. The galleries are suspended by strong iron rods from a massive truss roof, and will be more than equal to any weight which can be put upon them. The ca pacity of the house is between 800 and 000, and the seats, A. II. Andrews' grand opera chairs, are at once elegant and comfortable. The walls, which will be handsomely frescoed later in the season, are of a delicate tint which is very grateful to the eye and in pleasant har mony with the general appointments of the auditorium. The proscenium boxes, four in number, are very handsome, be ing beautifnlly embellished with a com bination of delicate shades and gilt, the handiwork of J. J. Breiner, a fancy painter of Chicago, who is isted by Hail & Vail, of this city. They are carpeted with Brussels and bung with handsome crimson drapery, the former being furnished by G. W. Newman & Co,, and the latter by I. D. Fox. The bouse is lighted with 250 gas jets, the grand center of illumination being a magnificent 24-hght chandelier, suspend ed from the center of the ceiling, the effect of which is extremely agreeable. These, together with the numerous side burners, were put in by Osborne fc Jer emy of this city. The stucco and ornamental plaster work is highly artistic and adds very greatly to the beauty and attractiveness of the auditorium. This portion of the work was done by C. A. Cole, who also furnished the stitues of Melpomene and Thalia, which adorn the niches above the proscenium boxes. The stage, one of the best in the west, is 30x00 feet and is furnished with all the accessories of a metropolitan theatre. These include a variety of excellent scenery suitable for the presentation of all classes of drama; complete and secured appliances for shifting lights, and an exquisite drop curtain represent ing a charming scene on the Rhine, painted by Mr. Tschudi, one of the most talented scenic artists in the country. In connection with the stage are neat and comfortable dressing rooms for ladies and gentlemen, a green room, and all the paraphernalia which go to make up the model play-house. ' The building is thoroughly ventilated and is heated by furnaces located in the basement. In short, the graceful and attractive exterior keeps the promise to the hope which it makes to the eye, and every detail in the plan of construction gives evidence of the regard manifested by the builders for the convenience of the public. In this connection it is only fair to say that Col. Whitley, .the gen tleman whose name tbe house bears, has been very largely instrumental in the success of this en terprise, having contributed thereto not only generously ot his means but by his energy and personal attention to the work aided materially in its consumma tion. " " Homeleaa Walls. Tuesday afternoon there arrived in Emporia from Topeka by way of the Santa Fe, three children, tbe oldest of whom was a boy aged about 15 years, and bis two little sisters, one twelve and the other-eight years of age. Their wretched and forlorn appearance at tracted the attention of Agent Tor- rington, at the depot, and upon learning from the boy that he and his sisters had started out to purchase government land, and that the sum of their financial resources was $1.15, he reported the case to the mayor who ordered the marshal to care for the ragged little waifs who were lodged in the jail over night and this morning taken to the poor farm to await developments. The boy said their fath er lived in Miller county, Missouri, and that bis name was A. Bogard. The children were wretchedly filthy and ragged, and from what can be learnei of them have been tramping through Kan sas and the Indian Territory for some months. We are glad to know that these unfortunate wanderers have fallen into such kindly hands as those of Epa Browa. - Betel Opening. We acknowledge the receipt of an In vttation from T. J.

A Rariew of the Condition of the Lan- ta Coal And Mining: Company. Extracts from the annual report of the Laveta mining company show the con dition of tbe company pn January 1st, 18S2, about as follows: . The company w a organized in the fall of 1879, with acapital stock of $100, 000, or one thousand shares of one hun dred dollars each. Since its organiza tion it has acquired by purchase and lo cation even hundred and sixty acrea of coal liuida oa which it has expended about $4,000 in developing work and taking out coal, having taken out and sold nearly coal enough to pay the above expense. The coal for all purposes is the finest west of the Allegheny moun tains and exists in almost unlimited quantities. The company now owns eleven silver mining claims in the Elk mountain, Sa guach and San Juan mining districts, also a one-third to two thirds' interest in each of fire other mining claims in said districts, on all of which they have' ex pended about three thousand dollars in developing work. All of its mines show good mineral bearing matter and most of them true fissure veins, some of which assay very high and . now show ore in paying quantities. .It has ex pended between six and seven hundred shares of its slock in the purchase of property, and has found it necessary on account or its accumulated possessions to incicase its capital stock to the max imum allowed by the Ieises under which it was organized, 2,000 shares of $100 each. On January 1, 1882, it . held unsold 1027 shares of its stock, the balance hav ing been sold and expended as before in dicated. It is intending and preparing to do a large amount of developing work during the -coming mining season, with flattering prospects of a good yield of silver and all the coal it can find mar ket for. The officers lor tbe present year are: J. Jay Buck, president; J. M. Griffith, vice president ; C. A. Letghton, secretary; W. II. Ingerman, treasurer. The stock is principally owned by our own citizens and is in. the hands of men that mean business, and we rredict . a flattering future for the company. Board or Health Meetiog-. The Board of Health held a meeting Monday at . the office of Dr. True? worthy, at which reports from the dif ferent committees appointed at a previ ous meeting to take steps for the protec tion of tbe city against small pox were heard. The action taken by the board is merely precautionary and there is at present no indication that there will be any necessity for carrying out any of the plans proposed in case of the appear ance of the contagion in this city. Mayor Eastman reported that he had secured the services of two male nurses in case their services should be required. Dr. Trueworthy reported having en gaged the services of Dr. McCandliss in the event they should be needed, and also recommended a location Tor a pest house north of the city in a suitable lo cation. E. F. Sprague was present and sub mitted plans for the construction of a temporary hospital 18x20 feet, which he said could hs erected at a few days' no tice. The board of health passed a resolu tion requesting the enforcement of the order of the board of education demand ing the vaccination of all pupils in the public schools. On motion the board then adjourned after appointing Dr. Trueworthy a com mittee of one to make arrangements for the conveyance of possible patients to the hospital, - AROUND TOWN. , E. M.

School Notes. The city schools have entered upon the fifth month of the school year. There seems to be little chance for decrease of attendance, as the number admitted is greater than the number who leave. There is not a room in the whole department but has from five to fifteen more than can be seated prop. erly. - - ; Our scholars are sad at the loos of their three companions, Reuben Rhu land and Charley and Walter Madden. O.ur sympathies are extended, id "the be reaved parents ana menus. - - Qur schools haye bean somewhat de moralized by sickness, death, measles, vaccination and the necessary absence of some of the teachers. ' We have an enrollment ol 2089 pupils average attendance, B71; daily attend aace, 317 ; tardinesses, 21 ; naf day ab sences, 1384; neither absent nor tardy, 453. The per cenL of the noxabtr oeithtr absent nor tardy, baaed oa the, average number belonging, is 46 percent. The number of half day absences is much greater than U should be. C. ,' Pleaaant .

News: Eureka is on the eve of an immense boom.- Ltui week we voted bonds in aid of the St. Louis, Ft. Scott & Wichita, and the contract has been let for grading ttie road through this town. The road bed at present is graded to Bachelor creek, eight miles east of town, and we expect to have tbe cars running into town by the first of April. A grand old fashioned uuion meeting closed last . week after baing carried on for three weeks. It was a very success ful one, and a score or more were re ceived into the varioui churches last Sabbath. The temperance law here is strictly (or almost so) enforced, and the guzzlers find themselves decidedly "left" when they come to town expecting to get on a "high lonesome." Business is good, and our business men are feeling very well satisfied with the state 'of trade. Eureka has not, and never has had, a case of small-pox, all reports to the con trary notwithstanding. The next day or two after the report came from Sev ery over five hundred wore vaccinated here and tbe work was kept up until scarcely a single person old or young. remained exposed. Several of Emporia's former residents are living and engaged in businefs in Eureka. Among them we find W. C- Hawk, formerly with Tatham in your city, who is now in business tor himself here; Smith Henry, formerly a plaster er of Emporia, who is in the buic tier ing business and is running a meat market. We also find Miss Mamie Gar lick teaching a schoal at Ivappah, as is also Miss Howard in the city schools here, both of whom are from the queen city of the umbrageous Neosho. I. R. Phenis, well known in Emporia, now takes his fodder at the Metropoli tan, which is ctused by his better-half being at Oregon on a visit. G. F.

About twenty-five new students have entered the school already, and more are coming every day. The classes have fairly begun work, and all are busy. Vaccination is taking the form of an ep idemic among the student. So is the paying of tuition fees. Prof. Davis explained the plan for the kindergarten yesterday. A lady has been secured to give this instruction who has bad experience in Germany, France and this country in kindergarten work. It is desired that the citizens of Empo ria furnish about thirty pupils for this school between the ages of three and eight. This is a rare" chance for those who will avail themselves of it. The term begins about the first of April. Those wishing to enroll children can do so with Prof. Davis. Tha tnition is email, much less than cot. part of tbe cost being made up by ; our teaching class and part , by . the proceeds from the entertainment at Whitley's opera house, to be given soon by the Normal, when the play "Kit's Experience," dramatized from,.'

The exercises consisted of recitations, select readings, reading of a paper got. ten up by the young people, and music, both instrumental and vocal. Miss Acbsah Harris: and Miss Bell Howard performing on the organ. The ladies of the neighborhood did great credit , to themselves by the magnificent supper served on tb? occasion.. . ! ' The result financially was quite a success. Ten cents for admittance was collected at the door from all except females ana boys under ten yenrj old. Twenty-five cents secured a licktl for supper.
