A Substantial Town Bnilt Up in the Period of Eight Months. Comer Stone Laying of the New Episcopal Church a Memorable Event in Its History. A List of Business Men and Residents A Bright Puturo Evidently in Store for the Rapidly Growing City More English Capitalists Ready to Invest -Items from Cities of the Happy Valley Special Dispatch to the Daily Eaele. HuJTCrMEDE. Kan., Njt. J. Last Tues day was quite a red letter day in the an nals of Euunymede, as on that day the corner stone of the new church was laid by the Rev. Dr. Beatty, of Wellington. The church has been a. long felt waut amongst the colonists, and we are pleased to be able to report on its commencement. Some two years ago Mr. Furuly to gether with his sister. Miss Furnly, first started the idea of an Episcopal church at Runnymede, and thanks to their efforts, backed up bv the other colonists, the church is now an established fact. About i p. in. tho visitors commenced to arrive, and a few minutes later the proceedings were commenced by the Rev. Doilor. Af ter a hymn had been sung by those present the preacher gave a short outline of the history of the Episcopal movement in the United States, and remarked that the church at Runnymede was the iirst church of the name of St. Patrick started in America. The reverend gentleman then proceeded to lay the stone, and the pro ceedings of such great importance to Run nymede came to a close by the singing of a hymn, during which a collection was made, which realized $11.35. Among those present we noticed: Mr. Furnly, Miss Furnly, Miss G. Furnly, Captain Percy Wood, Mi. and Mrs. Leton, Mrs. Macmangle, AVasborn. Dr. and Mrs. Eraser, Mr. Hobliu, and the following vestryman: Messrs. Faulkner, Wat mouch, Leton. Aud Messrs. Pigott, Breilin, Newton, Stugers, M. Lobb, Myors. Nixon Renshaw, W.Smith, Jones, Burt, Francis Deldaset, Dr. Holmes. The church will cost some $1,300 and will be dedicated on December 19, by the Right Rev. Elisha Thomas, Bishop of Kansas, when it is to be hoped all the numerous friends of Runnymede will make an earnest endeavor to be pres ent. During Tuesday a steeplechase wa3 run on the Runnymede track over eight fixed jumps, one mile in extent. There were three entries. Mr.f Mug'Ts Archie, 175 pounds; Mr. Hoblyn's White Cloud, 145 pounds, aud Mr. McGregor's Daisy 145 pounds. All got away to a good start, but at the fourth jump Mr. McGregor came to grief, but soon remounted and commenced a stern chase, but JMagill and Wale came down together to the last fence, when Wale's mount came to grief and deposited Mr. Wale to mother earth, where he remained. Magill sailing in tho easiest of winners, with McGregor some few lengths behind. IMI'KOVEMKXTS AT KUX'XY.M EDC. It has been something over emht months since our last visit to Runnymede and the English colony people, and we must say that the new improvements are beyond my sanguine expectation". Then it was merely a postoflice, together with a little blacksmith shop, and today it ranks way up in the good, solid eer enterprising towns of southwestern Kansas. Thero been erected an elegant three-story hotel building with all the modern improve ments, aud in fact will be one among the very best hotels in Kansas. The building is 75x140 feet with an ornamental porch the full front. The building will be ready for occupancy within ten or lifteen days and when the Gun Club boys of Wichita or any other sports want to have a first class time in every respect Runnymede is certainly the place to go as the boys down here dou't do things by halves; also an elegant Episcopal church building which cornerstone was laid as above stated and is very handsomely designed. A large building to be occupied by Dr. Frazer and Mr. Watmough in the drug business. The doctor is a number one physician and Mr. W. a whole souled bus iness man. The new store building built by Mr. Tumley has been stocked and they are enjoying a splendid trade for some months. Mr. Harvey Meyer, who has only been over from the old country a few months, is encaged in the hardware business and is building up a tine trade. Mr. Pigott is running a firt-class meat market and has the hearty support of the entire city and community Mr. Fred Foyer is proprietor of the large red livery, feed and sale stable just across the street trom the Runnymede Arms ho tel. He informed us that he was compell ed to build an addition to his barn to ac commodate the trade. , A large nursery ha been plan ted ad joining the town by Messrs. Tumley Sz Wade. An art and photograph gallery is now under contract,; o be operated by Hancock Bros. The coal yard and general freighting business is conducted by Messrs. Faulic uer& Stewart. Mr. H. Blood Smyth, of 3-iimerick. Ire land, u putting in a large public library, which is of vast interest to the entire colon v. H. S. Litsey is proprietor of an ex;ensive eating house and all one has to do to see he is succeeding in business is to eat a meal at his place. Mr. R. W. Watmougb. since coming to this country, has engaged in the dry roods and general merchandise business and is today doing a business which almost any merchant might be proud of. Mr. W.'s success is largely dne to his, although being an Englishman, still having the in terest of American industries at heart. Among the many interested in sleek raising whom it was oar pleasure to rnwt were Messrs. L- N Mac 11, G. W. Francis, R. H. Slack, S. Burt, H. G. Hob lyn, W. M. Lobb, Ed- Dorrington and Grant Gorton, and Captain Wood, pro prietor of the carriage and repair sbop The above named gentlemen are among those who have built and are now doing an excellent business. Aside from the many new enterprises which are now arranging to locate at this English city are the fol lowing: A milling company, creamery company, soda water manufactory, by Major Section, and last but not least a sugar plant. JIORE CAPITALISTS COMIXG. Mr. F. G. S. Tumley is at present communicating with several English, capitalists who are coming to this country soon, to visit the English colony at Runnymede and to investigate this and other large financial enterprises, and the writer's candid opinion is, there is no country that offers brighter induce ments for handsome profits than this rich country of ours; further we will say, no community or class of people are doinc more to bring men of means, who by such may increase their capital, than are the Deople of Runnymede, of which Mr. Tum ley is the medium through whom this val uable work is being done. The site of Runnymede is a most beautiful one, and of sufficient area to build a city of ten thousand, who can view from their own dooryards thousands of acres of beautiful rich" bottom lands lying on either side of the lasting stream of the Chicaskia. Al ready a large number of trees of different varieties have been pur chased and will be planted everywhere that will add to the beauty aud comfort of her citizens. Among the late arrivals from the old country who have already or will in the near future engage in stock farming and ranching are Messrs. J. Newton and Denison, of Scarboro, Eng.; Messrs. II. "Way. A. Pierce, J. Goodrich, J. McBlaine, H. Bredin, E. Ross, HancocK Bros, and others too numerous to mention on ac count of space, from all parts of the United Kingdom. The above boy3 have reaped a benefit by coming over before the advance in farm lands. Your correspondent was entertained over night at" the ranch of Mr. F. J. S. Tumley where music, supper and lunch are parts of his generous habits, and we hope te be present at the opening of the big hotel, as we have become pretty well acquainted with the folks and are some what stuck ou their way of doing things. JUBILEE SUPPER. Special Dispatch to the Dally Ecle. Chexey, Kan., Nov. 23. A jubilee sup per was giveu by the scholars of the pub lic school last night, at which all the deli cacies of the season were furnished, to gether with plenty of fresh oysters on the side. The supper was given in the Witten brick building on the corner of Main and second, aud was crowded to overflowing from the hour of 6 to 10 o'clock. Many times during the evening the room was so crowded that some could get in only by regular turn. The supper was given as above stated, and the proceeds are to be appropriated for some necessary fixtures in the school rooms. It was an excellent supper and every body had a uood time and a nice little profit of some $20 or $"25 was the result. After the supper a social hop was in dulged in at Walps opera house till the wee hours of today. Messrs. Hock & Martin, grain dealers, are handling a great deal of new corn just now, for which they are paying 14 cents. Your correspondent has talked with al most every business man in Cheney upon the question of resubmission, and we leel .safe in saying that nine out of ten are heartily in favor of resubmitting the ques tion. Some are strong prohibitionists, but say if a number of the citizens waut it, then why not- resubmit? ITEMS FROM GARDEN CITY. Special Dispatch to tho Dally Eucle. Garden City, Kan., Nor. 23.

A Plan Being Punned for Bringing the Matter Before Congress. TOPEKA, Kan.. Nov. 23. Judge J. W. Gregory, of Garden City, was in consulta tion with Governor Humphrey yesterday, for the purpose of agreeing upon a plan for bringing the subject of irrigation in western Kansas before the next congress. It has been demonstrated that the rainfall in that section is inadequate, and without relief by irrigation agriculture can not be a success. A committee will be sent to lay the matter before congress. Judge Greg ory said: "When once thoroughly devel oped oar water supply will not only fur nish us an absolutely ready and ample amount of water for irrigation, but wid be the source of a vast deal of wnter nowtr lor manufacturing purposes. The amount of land which I expect to ee fully supplied with water from the underflow, which is the chief source of supply referrrd to, will not be less than 4,000,UA) acres aud poMb!y double that area in southwest Kansat Tne same system will al? reclaim million of acres in Colorado, Northwest Texa, New Mexico, Western Nebrask. the D.i kotas, Montana and elsewhere that would otherwise be forever without an adequate or reliable supply of water for pnrpo-cs of irrigation.

JUDGE FOSTER'S REPLY. To A. L. Allen, H.O. Lindsay. Frank Herald and and others: Gentlemen Your complimentary ad dress, accompanied with a request, for my views on the oresent status ot prohibition and resubmission came to hand. 1 havo hesitated whether to comply or decline. There is a spirit of intolerance abroad toward all sentiment adverse to prohibi tion, and no one likes to draw on himself personal abuse or misrepresentation. If the fact would be accepted that uiuoty nine men out of every hundred are sincere ly iu favor of temperance, sobriety and good government, but honestly differ as to the means best adapted to that end, this subject like other questions of public policj' might bo discussed without bitter ness or personalities. When we consider the tidal wave of literature, judicial, ec clesiastical and political, case upon the country for many years past singing peans of praise to the glory of prohibition, it would seem to be treason to investigate the real facts and see how much of truth, aud how much ot fiction there are in it. No one can sincerely deny the evil of in temperauce. nor cau there be much said for tho saloon except that its recognition with proper restraining legislation may Iks less harmful to the habits and morals of the people than a system that ignores it altogether. After eight years of constant endeavor, aided by the most extraordinary legisla tion, it must bo admitted that constitu tional prohibition in Kansas has failed to accomplish what its friends promised and expected. The criminal courts and jails are still open and full of business and there is no decrenso in tho demand for police service, nor has the system estab lished itself in tho confidence of the peo ple. We may admit that it has reduced to a greater or less extent the quality of liquors consumed in the stn'e. We must further admit that in some localities tho saloon has been driven out of uxisUuce. When this has been said, substantially ail has bev,n said for prohibition in Kan sas. The habit and appetite for intoxica tiug liquors are as great as ever they were. It has become forbidden fruit and thus stimulates the perversity of human nature to taste it. In the hotels, on the railway cars, in business places, the inevitable bottfe is brought forth with some light jesting re mark about prohibition. Thero is an air of insincerity and hypocrisy about the whole buninens that mint disgust thoo who upport it from a deep conviction of duty. For a while the saloons all over the state disappeared as an ostensible business, and the traffic found its way into cellars nml back rooms. The saloon proper gave way to the "joint" and the "restaurant," the bar tender was jostled off the stage by the 'bootlet;c:er." Of laU the law falling into disrepute. the disguisu has grown thinner and thinner. In many places the saloons are permitted to run on payment of a monthly stipend denominated fines, or forfeitures. The last election demonstrated the fact that the law has les support in the country than in the towns. CP.LME KOT DIMINISHED. It has been iterated and reiterated tbat crime has ben diminished. Jy.'t ui -xmn-ine this question and make comparison between Nebraska, a saloon state, and Kansas for live years pat. In ISSj Kansas had a population of 1.20S. 502, with a pnvin population of 678. being one to every l.ftrso. In S W Nebraska bad a population of HO.OiTi, with a prison Dopalatton of 290, beiug one to evtry 2.800. In ISm Kansas had h prison population of ;S. increase in tbrt;yaars 215.

All control in the traffic in liquor, and all revenue from t&at vocrce, a also all control of it police force, bare be-ta lakes away from the larg cities, and taxnUoo has IxrgeJy increased.

How hx it affected tbett t large? It has turned fde diu of fcjutJy ad in dustrious people with brawn and muscle, who till the soil and develop the wealth of the state, and given instead an army ot soft handed non-producers who live by looking after the habits and morals of their neighbors. It has brought forth a brood of special class legislation bristling: with pains- and penalties fines and impris onment. Aud above all, it alms a blow at the natural liberty of the citizen and de bases bis manhood. No good citizen of any spirit can pass the ordeal of procuring a pint of liquor at a drug store for medic inal purposes without feeling humiliated and degraded. Fie on a law that treats the citizen as a malefactor and unworthy of trust and confidence. The true theory of our government is to accord to every person the greatest manner of per sonal liberty, holding him accounta ble for the abuse of that liberty. It may well be questioned if it Is the true theory of any government to restrain, hu miliate and hedge in with penalties, ninety-nine good citizens in order to remove temptation from one debauched member. Tho pood physician applies his remedies to thesore, and not the well flesh. What rea son have we to hope that the result of leg islative prohibition in Kansas will be oth er than the same failure it has proven whenever tried iu this country for tho pasc fifty years? Morality by act of the legis lature backed up by an iraconium code will not be accepted by a free people as tho sin cere, pure article. But some one asks aro you in favor of restoring the saloon J Other things being equal I would say no. But if every other consideration is to be sacri ficed I say, with proper legislation, yes. It is not worth while hero to discuss tho question whether there is a mid dle ground botweeu prohibition ou the one hand and the saloou on the other, and yet it may bo worthy of consideration. Is there of necessity a bond of union between the manufacture and sale of liquors for general purposes and a place where it shall be sold by tho dram as beverage? Our prohibition friends must not as- sume that they have a monopolv of all tho intelligence aud morality in the land. "Dost thou think because thou art vir tuous, thef e shall be no more cakes and ale?" At least thirty-six states of tho union recognize the saloon as a legitimate busi ness; and it would be presumptuous to as sume that the people of all tho.e stater would suffer In morals, on comparison with onr prohibition advocates. The localities where prohibition suffered most in the late elections lu the New Kng land states, was at the seats of kvtrning nud great educational Institutions, nud us to material prosperitj', we need not. go far over the eastern or western bordrr of our stat to find cities that have far outstnp led us in wealth, commercial Importance and municipal greatnetts. THF. I'KOlT.It COCllSE. In nij opinion a very proper course for Republicans who favor resubmission is to work for it through their own p.irty. To do this it is right to organize within tho party such members as hold similar viowit on the subject to work for its success 1c matters but little whether It rcaic- through a constitutional convention, or by n direct vote on this question nlont. Whether you should go as far as your opponents havo frequently done and threaten to do, I. c, vote for no man who holds views contrary to their own, Is a matter for you to decide, considering tho importance of the matter involved. It must lx kept in mind that prohibition is uo more n tenet of Republican faith than is your religious belief, or the place of your birth or tho color if your hair. It has been repeatedly iejeetrd by th national Republican party. Tin' people of the state must lc pcrmlttd to decide their own policy lu this, and all other mutter, and any party that seeks to stifle the volci of the people will be speedily consigned ti oblivion. Unless I very much misread the ulunn of the times, it is rapidly lwcornin a case of the politicians against thu popIc, and lu that contest the politician will lecclvo a repetition of the lessons of l2. You can place the most unlwmdfd faith, on the ultimnte verdict of the people, and I predict that verdict when rendered will consign that curious aud dlnreputablo brood of class leginlatlon railed the Mur ray law, the Metropolitan Police law, thi grand jury law, and the jury commission law et Id KemiH omiif, to the junk moti) of the historical society. .Sincerely yotira, (J. l.
