Contractor W. P. Stem Friday morning
upon enterinc his office in the rear of his

around and found in a keg setting near
the noor his books and papers, also a note
with the following: "These are of no
value to us and we return them to you in
good shape. C. and C."
They had, too, evidently been
monkeying with the lock as the combina
tion was turned and the safe locked. Mr.
Stem had not taken this trouble for some
time and it took him all afternoon to get
into his safe.;
The thieves appeared to have carried
away nothing except some gold
pens, erasers, rulers and writina paper,
nothing in fact or any value.
'A MTTIiE FAST.
Some of the parties living along Fifth,
Mead and Washington avenues, between
Douglas avenuejmd Central avenue, are
complaining again about the inconven
ience and danger experienced daily from
rapid moving of trains, and interference
with crossings. About a year ago the
matter was discussed in the city council
and some one appointed to pray to some
one for a change. The effort was thought
productive of some good, but the tendency
to revert to the same iaconvenience is
Mr. Flagg, of the Globe iron works,
stated that often he has seen the Santa
Fe crossing on First street blocked twenty
and thirty minutes when the street on
both sides would ba blocked with car
riages. Yesterday morning he reports
that it was blocked for twenty minutes by
cars being handled by the switch engine.
One time he says the fellows handling the
engine made a mistake and the last car
passed the center of the street a few feet.
A man in a carriage made an attempt to
get across and the engine backed out
and came near catching him, with brake
man and engineer laughing at the situa
tion. He reports that the Rock Island
passenger train south sometimes comes
down throuch that part of the city cover
ing fifteen or twenty miles an hour. This
usually occurs in the morning when possi
bly the engineer is hungry and wants some
of Col. Lamont's depot coffee and biscuits.
Another gentleman talking on the mat
ter stated that they did not
like to be run over daily and
put to such inconveniences in the
face of the fact that there are supposed to
be ordinances that should be enforced. He
states that the probabilities are that the
council at Its next meeting will be peti
tioned to try and bring about a change.
A member of the council was accosted
on the question and said he had no doubt
but that the council would do all in its
power to bring relief. He stated that he
knew nothing of the situation; had never
heard that the crossings were being
blocked, and if they are it would be a good
plan to "unblock" them.
The parties who have been very much
interested in paying and favoring that
improvement were very much disgusted.
They seemed to think that it would bo a
difficult task to get the majority of the
council to look favorably on the matter.
Tho slap of a few hours before was very
unexpected to some while others claim
they never had any great hopes of favor
A gentleman owning property on Waco
avenue is of the opinion that the Douglas
avenue movement was started with
the intention of giving the paving
scheme a black eye. He said
that no one for a moment supposed that it
is time to pave the avenue. He had not
heard of a movement of that sort until the
resolution appeared. The action of the
council on that matter of course was ex
pected but that had nothing to do with
Waco avenue. According to his mathe
matics the majority of the property own
ers on the avenue who live in the city are
in favor of paving, which would, in his
opinion, call for a very different action.
He was apprised by an anti-paving fel
low that the remonstrance shows a major
ity and ho could not see how both could
be in the lead. This was answered
by stating that question would be settled
before tho public improvement committee
which he hoped wonld be able to hold a
meeting in a few days to consider the
Tho superintendent of the water com
pany stated that he is of the opinion that
his company in the event that tho councd
should decide to pavo a certain street tho
company would get the main in proper
condition. Ho also stated that should
paving Jibe ordered any place
that would cover their wooden main
it would in all probability be removed and
replaced by iron.
COLONIAL TEA PARTY AT OLIVET
Those who are so fortunate as to gain
entrance to Olivet church, ou South To
Deka avenue and Orme street next Tues
day evening will be envied, for it will be
one of the events memorable in our social
history. The ladies have arranged a tea
party in colonial costume and customo.
Energetic hands have deftly woven the
fabrics and transformed them into the ha
biliments of the time of Governor Brad
ford, John Winthrop and Cotton Mather.
Again these worthies in their desceudents
walk primly our land. Washington will
bo there with his Lady Martha. The his
torical ingenuity of a score of ladies has
been taxed to bring again to life the times
of the colonial government. Many a grand
mother has willingly opened her chest of
napery and proudly lent the glossy dam
asks woven by hands long since still, or
brought forward silver kept in sanctity
there soveral generations, or from her best
closet takes down the lovely dish of china
at which generations hao sat. Ward
robes are ransacked for ancient garments
and tho magnificent brocades, stiff with
lavish costliness, velvets and laces of great
grandmothers are lavishly loaned. A real
New England kitchen, at which Darby and
Joan are to bo seated, will be one of the
features of this rare occasion. The an
cient melodies and tunes are to be sung in
"ye ancient way."
A FALSE ALARM.
Mr. Flagg, of the Globe Iron works. le-
ported yesterday that he had been visited
by quito a number of people who had
heard that he had sold his plant for ?60,
000. At first he took the matter very pleas
antly, knowing how it originated, but after
awhile the calls on that program became
less bearable. The report was started in
a way similar to some others, and in time
commenced to be believed. He says he is
uot trying to sell out his business in
Wichita, and thepublic can put all reports
that he has sold on the shelf, without even
The two boilers for the Citizens' Electric
Light company, being constructed at the

work for building fronts has been ordered
Mr. J. R. Cole returned from Kingfisher
yesterday and is figuring on his 1-own be
coming a city. He says there is no doubt
but that Kingfisher will be one of the im
portant towns of that country. He says
the Wichita boys there are doing well,
some of them trading in real estate and
some in other business. He is one of the
proprietors of a hotel and says thev find
their space occupied every day and night.
He reports that there is very much talk
around the town about the Rock Island
extending its line there. It seems to bo
the general opinion that the road will
reach that point at an early date.
The Caledanian picnic will take place on
the 24th as has been announced. They are

: COALi Otti INSPECTOR
Hon, Arthur H. Carpenter, of "Wichita, to be the
Governor Humphrey has decided to ap
point Hon. Arthur H. Carpenter, of Wich
ta, as coal oil inspector as soon as the law
published in the statute book. The secre
tary of state says that the latter will be
ready in a few days. Mr. Carpenter is a
young man and was a member of the leg
islature from Sedgwick county in 1887.
This action on the part of the governor
will be a painful surprise as well as a dis
appointment to Captain Jack Downing, of
Hays City, as well as to several other as
pirants to the position.
The law under which the appointment
is made will not go into effect until June
1, and the appointment cannot be legally
made until that date.

SAMPLE OF MAN.
Last evening a surly looking fellow pass
ing the Occidental hotel made it a point to
kick a dog, which led a spectator to re
mark: "Now that fellow will go home,
beat his wife, kick the children around
and play tho tough to perfection, and he
would not fight a man under any con
sideration." The fellow heard the remark, as it was
said more for his benefit than any one else,
and he made no objection. A policeman
was notified to follow him up and inter
fere early in the domestic trouble.
RESULT OF RAINS.
The Rock Island passenger train south
last night was five hours late owing to a
wash out about thirty miles east.
The Kansas Midland track twenty miles
north was under water for a quarter
of a mile some of it was removed. Trains
are abandoned until repairs can be made.
The Missouri Pacific and Santa Fe were
reported all riuht.
The recent heavy rains havo caused late
trains during the week. A gentleman
from Lyons last evening stated that on
Thursday nijht that country was visited
by the heaviest rain of five years. The
Little river was raginc but would not do,
as estimated, much damage to property.
Yesterday evening the Little river seemed
to bo rising rapidly.
Mr. J. R. Stone yesterday surrendered
the office of street commissioner to Mr, C.
B. Campbell, who was recently appointed
to that office. The two went to the tool
house near Hose house No. 2, and made an
invoice of the city's property used in that
business and everything was "present or
accounted for." The street force was there
and several of tho boys expressed them
selves as very sorry to loose Mr. Stone, for
he had befriended them in many ways.
They had got along nicely with him. Mr.
Campbell introduced himself to the boys
by passing around the cigars, and gave
assurances that he would endeavor to
treat them as nearly "white" as possible.
The commissioner and ex-commissioner
marched down Douglas avenue, being old
time friends the matter in the city council
did not disturb their former relations.

THE BOILER MEN'S CASE.
Yesterday afternoon the hearing of the
four young boiler makers of St. Louis took
place at tho police court before Judge
Mr. Stephens, at whose instigation they
had been arrested, was present, having ar
rived on the morning train from Carthage.
He was prosecuting witness, Mr. Rohra
bangh appeared for the prosecution and
Judge Martin for the defense.
Mr. Stephens testified to talk
ing with the young men
in the smoking room of the chair car on
the Frisco. One of them invited him to
take a drink and catching hold of his coat
pulled him down into the seat. He said
that while he could not identify all of the
money which was found in the possession
of Dwyer, the foreman, of the party yet
there were in the roll bills which were his.
These he recogni'ed from a crease which
was made in order to put
into his pocketbook: another he said he
recognized from drops of tobacco spit;
another was a 20 gold certificate, and an
other had a corner torn away from contact
with a piece of wax in his purse.
Tho four young men permitted them
selves and their baggage to be most thor
oughly searched, but nothing of the miss
ing money could be brought to light.
When put upon the stand they told a
plain, straight-forward story. One thing
that appeared strongly in their favor was
the fact of all being hard of hearing and
unable to understand the inquiries of tho
attorneys unless addressed in a loud tone
of voice. The 200 was very satisfactory
accounted for by Dwyer who said that it
had been given him by his employer before
he left St. Louis, for the purpose of de
fraying the expenses of the party.
Mr. Carroll, who is now engaged in put
tine up some iron work for the same firm
at Whitaker's plant testified to the good
characfer of the defendants and their ex
cellent standing in St. Louis.
Judge Callahan alter hearing the ar
guments took the case under advisement
intending to render his decision this morn
ing. Last night Chief of Police Aspey re
ceived the following telegram from the
chief of police of St. Louis:
Thomas Dwver, German Authes, John
Riley and Frank Mabrey, arrested in
Wichita on suspicion, are boiler makers
and are on their way to Arizona to do a
job. They are all right. Answer quick.
Chief of Police.
When the telegram was shown to Judge
Callahan he went immediately to the
county jail, where tho young men had
been taken, and released two of them,
Dwyer and Mabrey. The others will,
w ithout doubt, be released this morning.
The young men have throughout had
the sympathy of the people who have
talked with them, and also nf the officers,
who were inclined from the first to believe
them innocent. It appears that while Mr.
Stephens had been robbed, it was not done
by the young men, but rather by some
slick thief who took advantage of the boys
familiar with Stephens to rob him and
then cast npon them the suspicion, while
the real culprits made good their escape.

Aa Omaha Man "Watches the Perform
ance and Describes It.
L. L. Cloud, of Omaha, in a Chicago paper
says: Last summer the girl kept complain
ing that she could never find any eggs in
the barn. I did notthiakmuchof it atfirst,
but finally when the complaint was repeat
ed almost every day I began to think it was
rather strange that wo should not get more
than three or four eggs when we had at
1 least five dozen hens, and so determined to
' look into the matter. It was more than a
; week, though, before- I solved the mysterys
and then it was merely by accident. I was
' standing in the barn one Sunday morning
when a hen came cackling from her nest in
the manger, and a few minutes after a big
rat came from his hole, ran across tho barn
and climbed into the manger. I could hear
him, and was idly watching to see what ha
was doing, when you can imagine my sur
prise to see him rolling the egg in front of
bim toward the edge of the manger. After
0 good many efforts he finally succeeded.
He paused there, gathering the ogg up un
der his "chin;" ho rolled himself complete
ly around it, resembling the form of a
hedgehog when alarmed, then he deliber
ately rolled over tho edge of tho macser.
I and dropped squarely on his back on tho
floor, two feet below, thus saving tho egg
whole. Immediately he began to squeal
with all his strength, and just as I was
starting to put him out of his misery, think
ing he had broken his back in the fall, two
oth er rats appeared on tho scene. They ran
up to the first one, a3 ha lay on the floor,
and each seizing hold of a hind leg began to
drag him, egg and all, across the barn. Just
as they reached the hole, and tho first old
grizzled follow disappeared, pushing tho
egg in front of him, it dawned on mo that I
had at last found out where our eggs had
