Wichita every placJ he goes, and whether at
Kansas City, Omaha, Topeka, or where not,

Wichita always seems to leatl in the conver

Mr. S. says the finn is one of the stillest and

During the late illness of the editor of this
paper a communication signed "Broker,
severely criticising some action of the city
council which it seems was proposing a tax
ou real estate dealers, was laid on his table.
The communication was accompanied by 110
responsible name, and was not found by the
editor until yesterda'. Tho writer claims
that the real estate men made Wichita the
pre-eminent city that she is, rather than that
the city has made several real estate men.
If the real estate men made Wichita and
"Wichita didn't make a multitude of real
estate men, we suggest to our correspondent
that when real estate men can no
longer afford to go on making Wichita that
there are a hundred other towns in Kansas
anxiously waiting to La made, and which
towns will not charge the real estate men
ono cent, singly or combined, but freely con
cede them all that they can make out of the
enterprise. Our observation leads us to the
conclusion, or our conclusion leads us to tke
observation, which way you will, that none
but live towns support real estate brokers,
and that all the real estate men in Christen
dom couldn't resurrect or put life into a dead
town, and not only that but in attempting
such a thing they would starve in the opera
tion. If from the lack of brains, or of enter
prise, or of business or capital, Wichita
should cease to grow the real estate men
would pile out of the town like rat from a
sinking ship, and our correspondent would
probably lead the procession. Of course
little of this applies to such real estate men
as employ capital in their business, capital
and brains, as other business men employ
capital and brains, but it will strike between
wind and water tho greater number whoso
ouly capital is chin and cbeek.
Some sleepy chap by the name of B. F.
Wood, at Win field, saj-s, through the Conr-
ier, that "Wichita is in the midst of an un
healthy boom."' If the erection of eight
hundred buildings, involving an expenditure
of two millions of. money iu a single season:
if the doubling of our retail and the quin
tupling of our wholesale trade; if tha quad
rupling of our manufactures and increasing
by thirty per cent, our population, all within
tho same brief period, constitutes an "un
healthy boom,"1 then Wichita has got it bad.
As a boom it is no doubt a little too feverish
and energetic for the quiet nerves of our
sleepy friend, but its a boom which
has iu an increditably short time
made "Wichita the greatest city in Kansus
and which will within a brief period make
her the greatest commercial center west of
St. Lowis. Wichita's boom is an unheal ty
one, no doubt, that is, it is an unhealthy one
for her would-bo rivals, which WinGeld is
"An unhealthy boom!" Yes, very. We
know of towns whose people, without regard
to age or sex, have worn tho knees out of
their breeches praying for just such an '-un
healthy boom" and othor cities, notably
along 1 10 Missouri river, whoso business men
havo howled themselves baldheaded for a
liko calamity to fall upon them.
The Commonwealth in alluding to tho
hanging which is to take p'aca in this city in
February, sajs that prominent Wichita real
estato speculators made a determined but un
successful effort to have th hanging made
public, and that "tho Wichita peoplo were
sore displeased at tho action of the officials,"
as they thought that a few poople might bo
attracted to tho town and that it would be
quite a boom to havo a public "hanging bee"'
in their midst.
Wo have no idea, in the first place, that any
prominent Wichita man ever made any such
a request. The assertion, however, that the
Wichita people wore sore displeased, wo pro
nounce a lie, out of whole cloth. Wichita
people are refined, not brmtish, educated
christians, not fiends, ghouls, or devils, that
they should seek a gain from such an exhi
bition. As for tha intimation that a few
people might be attracted to the town, we
have only to say that should tho crowds of
people, wUo come aud go daily iu Wichita,
st-iko Topeka, her denizens would stai d
arjund with mouths agape wondering wheie
t jo big excursion had come from anyway.
Tho gas company is making an experiment
with an Albo-carbon lamp. Some weeks ago
four of that kind were placed in Talniage &
Todd's queensware establishment on North
Main street. They have been examined by a
numbjr of persons and seem to give perfect
satisfaction to the proprietors of the firm.
Tho new light allows the gits to pass
through a pijK' which is heated, raising the
temperature of tho gas, which theu enters
into a receiver filled with carbon. The latter
lends richness to the gas before it reaches
the blaze. The carbon makes the ilamo much
richer, and it is claimed is much cheaper than
if gas alone was used.
Tlie invention appeal's in tha minds of all
who are versed on questions of that sort to
be a decided success. It is one of the lute
efforts of those interested in the gas industry
to compete with the many different light.s
produced by the electric light companies.

Mr. J. A. Sohn has returned from his trip
to the east looking after tha interests of t he
Crystal Ice company. He visited the manu
facturers of artificial ica of Knui City,

with the machine which tho company has
decided to use. He thinks it is by far more
desirable than an- other machine now being

The machine to be used is now being made

Yesterday the lots on which the plant will
be located were deeded to the company.
They are on tho west side immediately aorth
of the passenger depot of the Fort Scott rail
road. The site has a front of one hundred
and fifty feet and one hundred aad thirty-five
feet deep.
The building will bo 100x120 feet. A part
will be four stories high aud tho remainder
two stories. The plans for the building are

There are evidently some very evilly dis
posed persons in the city w ho are wicked
enough to impose upon tlie credulity of the
innocent reporter on the Eagli: staff. Bea
con. It is very evident that the readers of the
Beacon wish that some one would bo kind
enough to impose on the Beacon reporters in
the same manner and give them some news
now and then. Doubtless they are tired
reading news poorly copied from the Eagle.
All who are familiar with both papers know
that theJJencou has suffered an ignominious
"scoop" in every item of local
interest that has happenened during the
last six months. Yesterday's paper was only
a fair sample. Scooped on tho sale of the
water works. Scooped on Nave, McCord &
Company, wholesale jobbing firm. Scooped
on the jail delivery. Scooped everywhere
and scooped every time.
It is not remarkable that those reporters
get scooped, but it is funny to witness their
efforts in trying to make their readers be
lieve that they do get some first hand news.
The Resident is honest enough to admit the
ability of tho Eagle in gathering news, but
the Beacon reporters stand off and whine
liko licked curs-.
Scarcely had tho three prisoners made
their escapo from tho county jail than tel
egraph and telephone messages were sent all
over this section notifying of their mcape.
Sheriff Hays was in Comanche county on
business, and as soon as ho received the intel
ligence ho knew who the escaped culprits
were, and considering the condition of tho
jail lloor, was not surprised. Yesterday he
was showing upon the streets a piece of the
iron broken off by the men. It was old,
rmty, and appeared to have beou broken off
by tho pounding upon it with their boot
ho ils.
Robert McMara was the prisoner who "it
was most desirous to recapture.
Carter, who is being held mainiy as a witness
would have been released yesterday, and
Ross, who was in for only a pett offense,
would have been freed Saturday. Tho man,
then, most sought for, apparently walked
right into re-arrest, and after hardly a day's
freedom was again in the hands of tho law.
About S o'clock Thursday night a man
came to the door of M. W. Dewing, a mar
shal of Valley Center, and begged for some
thing to eat. Mr. Dewing believing from tho
intelligeuce ho had received that this was
oue of the refugoes, immediately tu
rested him and brought him
to tho city on tho night train.
As he surmised his prisoner proved to bj oue
of the sought lor and to be McNara. He
was-givou ?20 for his diever capture.
Mc.Mara was yestorday breugh; into court
wLh another new charge hanging over his
held. Ho pleaded guilty to larceny and wai
sentenced to the state peaiteutiary for eigh
th c a months.
Yesterday forenoon about 10 o'clock tho
fira alarm was souuded, and th fire depart
ment wa3 soon out.
The cause of the alarm proved to bo a
small blazo in tho butcher ihop of C. G.
Roush on North Main, between Oak and
Tho department could find no plug near
the fire, and the bucket brigade was put into
action aud soon extinguished the flames
without much damage, save the destruction
of a stove, caused by the falling of a chimney
Durinj the excitement, of tho fire some
snsai thief stole about $2.50 from the money
drawer and made away with it undetected.
Tae clerk had fortunately earlier in tho day
takttu all tho mouoy, about ?10 in amount,
from th drawer, leaving the abovo small
amount in change.
Mr. Glen Miller, formerly of tho state uni
versity but who now holds a responsible po
sition ou the C. B. & N. railroad in Wiscon
sin, is the guest of Mr. Bonnie Mead. Mr.
Miller was in the city near eighteen months
ago and like all others who have been away
that long expresses himself as much surprised
at tho wonderful growth of the city. He
He says he had made allowance in his own
mind for a booming city but the suburbs are
much farther from the center of tho city
than his calculations would admit. He re
grets very much to be compelled to abroviate
his visit but is compelled bj- business matters
to leave this evening.
The teachers' examination which it was
decided to hold today and Saturday has been
postponed. It has not yet been definitely
determined when it will be held, but it is
thought it will be before holidays.
It became evident that an examination
this week could not be attended by all who
ere expected to be present, and hence the
Last Wednesday evening while Mr. Ed-
ridge and family, who live at the corner of
First street and Emporia avenue, were at the
supper table, a thief entered the residence at
tho front door and captured a numlwr of ar

Married, at the residence of the bride's
parents, No. 417 North Market street, by
Rev. J. C. Pot, Mr. Edward .XL Brown and
Miss Amelia J. Dunlap, both of Wichita.
' Joe Simons, of Myer Bros. Drug company,
Kansas City, was in the city yesterday.
It will be remembered that a few days ago
the Eagle gave an account of the death of
Mr. Warren McAboy, of Towaada. A re
reporter was told last evenmg something
more of the circumstances which doubtless
caused him to committ suicide. He came
to' this city from Pekiu. Illinois, j While
there, his half brother, Press Perrel broke
up in business and succeeded in getting Mc
Aboy to lend him $1,500 which was all the
money ha had. With this money he com
menced high life aud tho lender as unable
to recieve as payment a siugle dollar of it.
Falling a victim to a rascal of a half-brother
whom he had befriended bor heavily upon
his mind, and he was compelled to again
start from the beginning. He then came to
this city, and afterwards ended his troubles
as stated. By far the most
startling fact is yet to be told. No ordinary
low down specimen of humanity can hear it
without a blush of indignation mingled with
rage depicted on his countenance, yet the
half brother was the en? man in the whole
scene. When he had suic.ded a gentlemau
at Towanda telegraphed the fact to Perrel
and asked what to do with the body. Notice
the reply:
"Bury him and send me the rest!"
In the languigo of the multitude, verily it
is true facts are stranger than fiction.
Last evening the l'erpsichorean club gave
their first social hop at tho G. A. R. hall.
About fifty couples, all invited guests of
the club, assembled, aud tho evening was
most delightfully spent in dancing and social
The program, consisting of fourteen
dances, was carried out under the mo.st skil
ful supervision of Prof. Louis Mahler, mas
ter of ceremonies. Tho floor committee,
consisting of the following gentlemen, Sol
Summerfield, B I?. Pallock, L. B. Solomau,
M. Jacks, S. J. Wertheimer, put forth every
effort to make the affair a suj'esst and they,
as well as all the members of the club, may
well congratula'e themselves upon the happy
The club, which has but recently been or
ganized, has tho following membership:

Block, Morton Wollnian, Sam lies--, Sam
Friendick, Al Solomon, M. Frieberg, Cha

social intercourse; and they expect to give
hops now and theu during tho winter season.
Last evening the Clark Comedy company
put upon the stage Shaughraun. The house
was ( ro vded again, and tho play was mot
enthusiastically received.
Miss Francis, as Claire Ffohott, scored an
other success; the life aud vim she put into
tho character made her a favorite from her
first appearance upon the stage.
Conn, the Shaughraun, was most cleverly
acted by Mr. Oglesby. The many happy
hits that the play permits were well made bv
hiru aud highly applauded by the audience.
Mr. Percy Meld m took Captain Molineax.
antl gave a good representation of the char
acter. The other parts were all well sustained.
Tonight will be given tho Banker's
Daughter, the dress pieco of tho repertoire.
The costumes worn by Mass Francis and the
other ladies are elegant, aud no pains will be
spared to produce the play in the finest and
most acceptable manner.
G. W. Smith, of red-ngiit fame, got into a
row Wednesday niht with an inmate of h 3
establishment, and her threat to send for a
policeman caused him to jerk the wire from
tho alarm box and played smash with tho
property of the At D. T. office generally.
His action broke tho circuit on tho route in
the south part of tho city on which was near
fifty boxes. Tho company soon knew tnat
there was trouble somewhere, but were un
able to find out where it was uutil yesterday
near noon. During all this time the south
part of the city was without service, and. one
can readily see where trouble would origin
al; uuder such a state of affairs.
On finding out the condition of things. Mr.
A G. Maiden, superintendent of the A. D. T.,
appeared beforo Justice Walker and caused
a warrant to be issued for Smith, which was
immediately given to an officer, who started
on the hunt for him. ami 111 a few hours ap
peared bofore Justice Walker with the iden
tical Smith. Ho was given a preliminaiy
trial and placed under bonds of $200, and the
case continued.
Last evening a man dripping with mud and
his face covered with bioo I came up Djuglas
avenue from the bridge asking for assistance
to find his way across the riuer to the east
side. Officer Clark, after a vain effort to
convince him that he was upon the east side,
started him towards his home, which he said
wits on Mosley avenue. He aceouuted for
his appearance by s iving that he had been
knocked off tho bridge three times "by some
villain.'' The officer, however, did not take
much stock in the drunken man's story, but
is inclined to think he lost his equilibrium hi
attempting to cross tho street car bridge and

Yesterday afternoon one of the boldest and
most deliberate of robberies was attempted,
but owing to the grit of a young man the
