The second effort at a school board meet
ing was made yesterday at 4 p. m., and re
sulted in a degree of success just exactly
equal to the former effort. Howard failed
to put in an appearance. Some of the
members are a littte suspicious of Mr.
Howard. According to the present count
the board is composed of twelve members,
but there are two vacancies, leaving ten in
active service. Three of these are reported
to bo out looking after some heat
for the coming year for the
new school buildings. This leaves
"seven are we" an exact quorum, includ
ing Mr. Howard. All the efforts to get a
meeting since the trip started by the build
ing committee have failed, owing to the
absence of Mr. Howard.
Some of those who have given the mat
ter enough attention to be on hand for
business, assert that the building commit
tee must have had an understanding with
Mr. Howard to keep shy while they were
absence, so no business of any kind
could be transacted. Each time
a meeting has been called a special mes
senger has been sent to notify Mr. Howard
always failed to succeed in getting him to
attend. It is considered the committee
before leaving concluded the board might
jump at a conclusion and decide what sort
of heating system should be adopted be
fore they had the matter fixed so no
quorum could be found at any time and
hence they would not bo out-generaled.
The plan or the scheme as estimated ha3
caused some of the members to become
quite impatient. They claim there are
many things that should be attended to. A
change of grade for third ward building is
tiecessary; a change in foundation raisin
it about one foot. The First ward build
ing as claimed needs to be put down a few
inches according to report and much work
needs attention. Work is being done on
five of the new buildings and the Burton
four-room building is being plastered and
some of the members say not one of the
building committee has been up to see
how the work has been done. The build
ing is thought will be ready for use in
a few days which by the way is legarded
as quite fortunate for considerable incon
venience has been reported from that sec

The board, it is said, may attempt an
other meeting this afternoon and insist on
Member Howard being present. Some
suggest an officer ho sent after him and
see if it is possible to have a meeting. It
is not known when the absent members
will return. The last heard from them
they were going down toward Point
Comfort, Virginia, where they expected
to remain some days looking
over the relics of the campaign . It is
suggested that in the event no meeting is
held until their return the fellows who
have been compelled to dance will have a
change and some one else will be invited to
engage in the exercises. '
The hearing of the Wichita Straet Rail
way injunction was continued yesterday
afternoon before Judge Reed. Mr. Harris
concluded the argument for the plaintiffs
at four o'clock, when the court took the
case uuder advisement for several days.
Mr. Harris in his argument went over the
history of the street railway trouble
nun iedly and briefly reviewed tho argu
ments that had already been presented.
After this he held the case up in several
new aspects allowing the light to shine
uninterruptedly tin ouch its many compli
cations. He contended, that the same
principles which would allow the
injunction to be dissolved would allow an
other road not only to parallel but actu
ally coincide with every line at present
laid in the city. In fighting for the rights
of his company against infringment of
this nature ho was also fighting for tho
Riverside company against infringment by
some new company. It seemed to him
that if the Riverside company had any
legal rights down that street it might have
waited until its franchise had been pub
lished and then gone to work in the day
time. Although the defense claimed that
it was an unimportant matter,
presumably to themselves it was a matter
of vital importance to his company. At
the close of the argument Judge Reed
stated that according to the practice of the
court the case would naturally bo rested,
but that considering its importance he
would be pleased to listen to anything
the attorneys might wish to say. The
plaintiffs said they were satisfied to rest
the case as it stood. Upon being asked by
tho court Judge Sluss said that Mr. Harris
has cited cases and authorities which it
would be impossible for him to answer
without giving them some study.
Judge Keed then waited a few minutes
longer, and as no one availed themselves
of tho opportunity, said that his mind was
about made up, but considering the im
portance of the case would with-hold his
decision for several days in order to verity
his opinion by istl ctiou.
At a meeting of the directors of the
Wichita hospi.al, November 21, the com

Whereas, In the good providence of God
He has called Mrs. I arrie Wallenstein
from her earthly labors to serve in that

Resolved, That in her death the officers
and members of the Wichita hospital have
ported company, for a short season, with
one of their most zealous helpers one
who was ever ready and willing to minis
ter to the wants of the sick and needy, and
whose untiring zal in the good work was
such an incentive to stimulate others to
follow her example that her influence is
an imperishable monument of her worth
and devotion. to the cause of humanity.
Resolved, That we extend our sympathy
to her bereaved husbaud ami child, antl
commend them to the tender care of the
Great Shepherd of Israel whose ej'o never
slumbers or sleeps, remembering that in a
few fleeting years we shall all, one by one,
be called to pass through tho dark valley
aud shadow of death to meet the loved
ones who hae only gone before to that
clime where sickness and sorrows of earth
are unknown, and the reunion will be
pure, perfect, satisfying and eternal.

Mr. Frank Amsbury now regeristing
from St. Joe, Mo., being superintendent of

Should it be some weeks before the iron
necessary arrives it is feared that the pav

one hundred.
Messrs. J. J. Bnttingham and Cliff
Lawyer entertained qnite a number of
friends last nicnt at their ner pallery, 112
east Douglas avenue. They have nicely
fitted tip a gallery, haviag four rooms for
their ue, and extended an invitation to a
number of friends on the event of their
openinp. One of the many pleasant fea
tures Tra-s music by Prof- Chas. Eeal, Oscar
Kaily and M. E. Boffgs. Ths evening ivas
a most ple.Vvant one for the many present
and the last "vnshes for succc" .came at
a lat hour.
Robt. Downing opened last night at the
Crawford Grand in "Virgiiiius" to good
business, "lgnomar" will be given at
matinee today and the "White Pilgrim"
It may be comforting for some of the
readers to know that Mr. Downing was
once an amateur, occasionally taking part
in amateur performances in Washington.
His friends did not tell him he was
'rocky" however, or threaten to throw
vegetables at nim, but they recognized in
hiiri the genius that has since developed
itself and ranks him already, although
but little past thirty, among the foremost
tragedians on the stage.
Mr. Downing in au interview made him
self responsible for the bare fact only that
he began as amateur. Ou the advice of
friends he took to the stage as a business
fourteen years ago, and made his first en
gagement with John Ford of Baltimore.
After working very hard for four years he
began playing leads and afterwards sup
ported Mary Anderson for four years.
Starting out for himself his first venture
was "Tally Ho," but soon realized that the
legitimate tragedy offered a better field
and began with Sparticus. He said: "I
think a great deal of 'Virginius' and do
not think there is a nobler or grander
character on the stage.'"
Considering the hard contest for pre
eminence in Mr. Downing'? profession his
success has been phenominal and he is a
young man to command such a large
share of fame.
At Crawford Grand Monday Nov. 23.
It is useless to inveigh against ''Star
light" which has already won nopular
favor in two seasons. Moreover, "Star
light" pretends to be little more than a
comedy show with the brilliant Jarbenu
coruscating as the central star. And,
verily, Jarbeau does coruscate. There is a
flash, a glitter, a sparkle 111 her rapid,
dashing, spirited action that is like the
successive gleams of an agitated jewel.
She is all vivacity, irrepressibly lively,
working hard at all times as though
animated by an electric charge, and her
heels are as nimble as they aro impudent
when she surrenders them to the license
of dances peculiarly characteristic of Jar
beauj Exchange.
This great combination ot musical forces
which is considered the finest of its kind
in existence, will be heard at Gilmore's
festival at Crawford's opera house, Tues
pay, Nov. 20, afternoon and evening.
"Mr. Whitney, of course, was 'splendid,'
and sang as no other basso in the world
can sing. The rule against recalls scarcely
restrained the audience from demanding
repetitions of his arias." Ex.
The Burleigh combination, A. R. Wit
hers new attraction, will play their return
engagement at the Crawford Grand on
Thursday November 2S, for three nights
and a graud Thanksgiving matinee, pre
senting Thursday night the great comedy
drama "The Planters Wife," Friday night
"The Black Spider," Saturday night T. II.
Glenny's dramatization of Hugh Con
ways famous novel, "Called Back."
Matinee (Saturday) at 2:30 the comedy
"Falsely Accused," and for the special
Thanksgiving matinee Thursday at 2:30,
the great fairy spectacle, "The Crystal
Slipper," will be presented.
A power of attorney from India reached
the register of deeds' offico yesterday, and
Mr. L. W. Ciapp seeing it at first glance
asked what it was, aud received in answer
that it was the last letter from members
of the school board out after heat.

Agnes " He praised your tresses In his rhyme,
Your shining- hair, your golden hair;
He sang that sunshine lingered there,
The sunshine of the summer-time;
He told you love had hid a lair,
In tangles of your shining hair."
Louise "Yes, Agnes, I have caught a beau
With these blond tresses fair;
Because I cleanse them oft, you know,""
With Ivory Soap, as pure as snow,
The soap without compare."
There are many white soaps, each represented to be';just as good as the Mvory1 ;'
they ARE NOT, but like all counterfeits, lack the peculiar and remarkable qualities
of the genuine. Ask for "Ivory" Soap and insist upon getting it.

Bargain Week Keeps On.
The success of our bargain week lias gone beyond anything
we ever anticipated. The glorious weather has crowded tho
streets, and, as a natural consequence, our store lias been also
well tilled. People saw the announcement that this was bargain
week, they came on what they saw; they expected bargains
and bargains they got. Everything in our mammoth stock still
goes at bargain prices, and we intend to make this such a week
for us and our customers as was never experienced before in the
history of the dry goods trade in Wichita. Bargains in Cloaks
bargains in Dress tjoods, bargains in Carpets, bargains in novel
ties, are a few of the attractive signs which we display this week.
Come in, and when you come, expect to see some bargains, and
you'll not be disappointed, and you will be sure to find something
that will suit you.
The year is just drawing to a close. Only one more month
is left after this one, and on the last day of December our grand,
drawing of prizes comes off. The list is still the same, and with
every dollar spent you get a chance.

DOES If EVER strike" YoDThat year by year the
habits of people vary as to tho fashions. Time was
when about the only chance a man had to get a suit of
clothing -without paying four prices would be to
haggle for an hour, and finaby a spirit of compromise or
ratigue would induce the contending parties to agree. Differ
ent nere, and it is our proud honor to state, we were the
pioneers in this system of one price. We have gone ahead or
any of our compbttltors, and mark all our goods In PLAIN
FIGURES. True, there are some of the "How-much-wlll-you-give"
class of clotniers,those relics of "barbaric clothing
days," but their days are numbered, and ere many moons
have come and gone, they will be laid away and have joined
the silent majority. But talking of changes, dontchericnow
it is time to change your overcoat. Has not the change In
the weather suggested to you the propriety of looking at
those overcoats, the merits of which we have been proclaim
ing all the season. Take a look at some of our far-trimmed
overcoats. They will make your mouth water. That one at
S30. it is a bird- We have sold stacks of them already tola
season, and have stacks left. Then we have a fur-collar coat,
at S15 that is a "gem-'' bat ail our specialties are "gina," and
of the first water is a coat beaver currf and collar English
chinchilla, which we are selling cheaper than we did last
year, notwithstanding the fact that fur ana cloth have both
advanced in price.
