NO. 14 "rs.'ss"' IISTl!llIilHKA7FTTF .iSsg li II -ri THENEWWHOLESALE HOUSE Th Big Parkhurat-Davla Hcut It Nearly Complat. Through the kindness of Mr. retro, a representative of this paper whs this morning shown through tho now wholesale- grocery Iiouko which tho Varkhurst-DuvlH company M Tokeku are establishing hero, and was very favorably impressed with tho place " Tho new house as It now stands Is 125 feet long by 38 feet wldo, and Is it great Improvement over tho old mill. A two story structuro of brick, 75 feet by 35 feet with a basement of the Biimo dimensions having an abso lutely water proof floor of crushed rock and cement, as been built In the rear of tho old part, and a now roof has beon added to the old mill. A spur track has been built along the south side of tho building and everything has been constructed to facilitate tho handling of tho goods. An electric elevator, with automat ically closing traps door on each door, will bo one of tho Interesting features of tho house. Tho company has ulivady ceased doing business In Mel'licison and have shipped what goods they had left at that place, to Hutchinson, A munpber of car loads of new goods havo been ordered and aro expected to priive dully.

Hutchinson is to be congratulated on receiving this new industry and Is rapidly to tho front as a wholeale and Jobblngcontcr. Heat Mirkit Robbed. Krom Thursday's Dolly. Some ono entered tho meat market at John Severance last night and took about 410 In silver from tho cash reg Jstcr. There was about seventy cents in pennies and a few postage stamps that were also In tho till, but these were left behind by the thief. Contrary to his usual custom, Mr. Scvreanco closed nhout eight o'clock last night, as he was In a hurry to get hoiii.', where some of his family wo!" 111. In his hurry, Mr. Sever ance forgot to take the change from tho till, as lias always been his habit when closing up. About 11 (clock, Dr.HartMcCurdy, who was goiiig'Jiomo, noticed that the hasp had been pried from tho screen doors and supposed that a theft had been comlttcd. Accordingly he called a polccman and then went to the homo of Mr. Severance, where he aroused tho latter, who hurried at onco to tho store. On examination it was found, as has been stated, that about ten dol lars, mostly In quarters and smaller change, had been taken. A stranger had been In tho shop just a few minutes before eloslg, and it Is supposed that he, noticing the money in tho drawer, which is always left open to facilitate rapid change making, hung around In tho neigh borhood unt il Mr. Severance's depart ure and then forced his way Into the More. Tho entranco was very eas ily made as tho screen doors were the only obstacles to bo overcome, the inside doors of a meat market never tielng closed on account of tho meat. Mr. Severance says that ho does not know the suspected stranger, but he is confident ho would recognl.o him if he ever sees him again. Young Woman', Mystery. From Friday's Dally. There seems to bo sonic kind of a mystery hanging over a young lady Swede by tho name of Erlckson, who came hero from Mar quette Kansas, the first part of the week. She took rooms at tho Wilcox hoarding houso on Sherman street West, and as she; acted very pecu liarly at times, Charles Orth, an em ployee, of the city water works, thought an investigaton, should bo made as to her sanity. Accordingly, the county ofllclals wero notified of the facts and Or. Gage was sent around.to sec the girl. ' She would talk intelligently for a few minutes and would then lapse into silence, seeming to forget every thing that she hndsald, then arous- 5 .";(,. ll" ' ' n r; ' statements its "I did not mean any harm." "Nobody was Injured", etc, Dr. (iago was not ablo to find out tho exact trouble with tho girl but thought that It looked as If she had been Imposed upon by somo ono or was In somo mental trouble, so the county olllclals decided to have her tried for insanity. Whllo prepara tions fo this wore being made last evening, a brother of tho girl came down and took her homo with him, which of couro has ended tho alTalr so far as his county Is concerncl Tho matter, howveer appears very mysterious and looks as if something was wrong. Dlttloult lurgloal Operation, I'nim Friday', Dally. Dr. Raster, chief surgeon for the A. T. & S, F. railroad and his assis tant, Dr. McConnoll, performed a very dllllcult operation for appcndel lis on Mr. Perry, at tho hospital of Dr.. Welch yesterday afternoon. The operation required a great amount of of care on account of tho extraordi nary amount of cohesion present around the abpendlx. The appendix was successfully removed and found to contain an inflammation which would havo produced certain deuth In a few days. The operation was witnessed by somo fifteen physicians and has been pronounced tho most dllllcult ono of Its kind ever perform ed In this section of tho country. Tho pat ient Is doing very well this morning and stands a good show. for recovery. Two operations wero also performed this morning and tho pa tients In both cases are doing nicely. Dr. Welch's new hospital Is a two story structure, well loculed and very conveniently arranged. Tho rooms, of which there aro ten, aro very com modliis and ample, Attendants are always ready at a moment's notice. Tho operating room deserves special mention. Everything here Is In first class condition; tho light Is good and the equipment Is complete. As Is the custom In all city hospitals, this room Is at tho service of any of the physici ans of tho city, tho prlvlledgo of nurse hire only being rcsorved by.the proprietor. Fall From ssoond Story Window. From Friday's Dally, Ycsrterday afternoon, shortly after 4 o'clock, the little two-year-old boy of Dr. Fletcher, acorn doctor, who has been stopping hero for tho past two weeks, fell out of a second story win dow In tho Reno House, and was picked up, badly frightened, but unin jured. Tho child had been playing In tho window for some time, occasion ally placing both of his hands on the screen and leaning his weight on It. The screen was loose on one side, and a drayman, who hud noticed this and had been watching tho child for some time, had Just started Into the hotel to warn the parents of tho danger the child was In, when tho screen gave way. The boy 'fell head foremost from tho window and alighted upon a small table, containing some cloth ing samples, which stood directly un derneath tho window. The drayman, who had Just started In the hotel, reached the table In time, to catch the child beforo It fell onto the sidewalk, and carried him up to tho terrified father. There Is no doubt but that the. child would have been killed had It not been for tho table on tho sidewalk, and as It Is, ho received a severe Jar on the neck which may result In trou ble later on, Now loe Plant. Through the Instigation of Agent C. A. Walker, tho Santa Fo aro enlarg ing their ice plant located In their yards, ono block west of Main street. Mr. Gctts, a well known contractor, of Topeka, has tho work In charge and says that outside of tho house at Newton, which Is the largest on the system, It will bo tho biggest between Kansas City and LaJ until. The build ing when finished, will bo seventy two feet long by twenty feet wide and about eighteen feet high. Jt will havo a capacity of 000 tons of Ice, of which, during tho warm,scason, the company will uso from three to four tons per day at this point. Carrltd Concsalod Wtapon, Constable Shirk, this morning arrested and brougnt into Justice Knauss, court W. E, Dew, on a charge of carrying con cealed weapons. Dew, a boy of nineteen years and a lather by trade, Is another example of the juvenile desire tocarry deadly weap ons. He plead guilty to the charge, was fined $15.00 and costs which are $15.85 and hp been committed to jail to await A HOUK SUBSIDY I ILL There Is a movement among some of the carpenters In Ranting in favor of a house lubsldy bill, They think that good bouses are as important as good ships. Tbey ars going to ask Cengresi to pass a bill giving carpenters 25 per eent of the Talus of the houses the; build, from the national treasury.

It Is a condensa tion of what many other people bavs said with less pith. It is however a statement which runs counter to the ideas of soany of the conservative peo ple of the oountry. It relates to the trust question and runs as follows: "It should be as much the aim of those who seek for social betterment to rid the business world of crluiee of cun nlng as to rid the entire body politic of crimes of violence.

It will not require many gifts of this dimen sion to Insure Mr. Carnegie absolutely against the disgrace of dying rich. Most of bis donations have heretofore been of $50,000 to $100,000. It would require a very large number of them to amount to a sum like this one. Ap parently Mr. Carnegie does not expect to live long. The political composition of the pres ent Congress Is as follows: House 198 republicans and 150 democrats, a re publican majority of 80. Senate 65 re publicans and 33 democrats, a republi can majority of 22. With Btich major ities as this there should be little trouble In fixing responsibility for the good or bad done by that eminent body. Yet the fact remalna that if times con tinue prosperous the people will ratify the work of the party In power, by re turning them with the Injunction, "well done." If times should become tight they will be held to blame and turned out with plenty of fault found. It seoms quite certain that Mr Le land is by no means certain of bis job as pension commissioner. There has been mu h talk to the effect that be was very doubtful indeed of being able to retain it. During the last few days however bis prospects are said to have Improved. Yet be Is by no means cer tain. The latestannouncement is that the president will appoint Mr. Leland if the Kansas delegates will agree up on him. This however would seem to be rather a doubtful consummation. There can be no doubt but tbatLe land Is much of a boss and the presi dent does not seem to be in love with bosses. The report of the postmaster general now recommends an appropriation of 86,000,000 for rural free deliveries. The first appropriations made during Mo Klnley's administration was 150,000. This was sucn a meager allowance as to be worth but little. However it was enough to demonstrate, or assist ma terially in demonstrating the feasibil ity and utility of the plan.

B ' 9 that it Is now past the experimental state and that free rural deliveries will now take place among the paramount Institutions of the country. It will be one of the greatest blessings of the government. In fact while there abuses In the poBt office department it is in its entirety the department dearest to the people of Jany in the cabinet. It Is apparent that industrial and per haps political affairs In Germany are In the worst condition for years. It is now several months since the papers printed the news of financial dlfllcul tles that threatened to develop alarm ing proportions. As usual It mani fested Itself in the banks. They are always the barometers to show the im pending storms. There has been no real panio, but bard times have follow ed up until the opening of soup bouses has become imperative. Industries are closed and the workmen, in ububI times prosperous, are forced to aocept alms. These conditions are seriously to be deplored In any country, but they come more or less frequently to all countries. The world Is now so cos mopolitan that any such disturbance is very apt to be communicated to other oountrles even across the seas. The world as a whole, except in parts of Asia and perhaps localities in Russia has been very prosperous for the past few years. It Is but natural that this ' order should be reversed sometime, ere many years. However it does not seem that the world is ripe for another panic though it will come soo.e day.
