ENGLAND VS. IRELAND,
Tae Exhibition Foot-Ball Match by the Ean
The very tmpropitious weather of yes
terday prevented, as was to have been ex
pected, any very large concourse of visi
tors to the Riverside park ball grounds,
yet when '"play" was called in the English
vs. Irish exhibition football match there
was a fair sprinkling of curious onlookers,
anxious to see how was played the popu
lar British game. Those who braved the
elements were amply repaid, for each
point was closely contested and the entire
play was a fine exhibition of skill, pluck
It having been agreed that the match
should be played half under Association
rules and half under Rugby, as being fair
er to both teams. The tos3 for goals be
tween Watmongh and Bredin, captains of
the English and Irish teams respectively,
was won by the latter, and the sons of Erin
took the west goal thns gaining the ad
vantage of the more elevated end of the
field. Play was called promptly at 2:45 by
Umpire Fraser, and Watmough kicked off
for the English. Both teams soon got
warmed up to the work, but it
became apparent early in the
game that the Englishmen were
superior to their adversaries under associ
iation rules. The bali was kept close to
the Irish goal most of the time and O'Con
nell had his hands full guarding his trust.
The first try for a goal failed, the ball just
topping the bar instead of going under,
but after this the Englishmen cot in some
quick work and Cox, McGregor and Wat
mongh successively scored goals. At this
stage Bomford relieved O'Connell as goal
keeper, but end half time was called
shortly afterwards and before anything
more was placed to the credit of the
aggressive English. Score 3 to 0.
A short breathing snell and the Rugby
ball was brought out. Under these rules
the Irish were in their element. They
found particular delight in "scrimmages'
and many a bruised shin, twisted limb
and gory nasal appendage bore tribute to
the vigor with which the game was con
tested. As the English were superior un
der the other rules so were the Irish under
the Rugby, and Way's goal was in con
stant jeopardy. Some magnificent run
ning was seen in this game the strong play
under these rules being to find the
ball up and run with it, trying to score a
"touch down" behind the line of the goal.
Lecky, for the Irish, was particularly
strong. He is fleet of foot and Jnimble at
dodging as a rabbit, and to his credit were
placed three out of the four "tries" scored
by the wearers of the green, O'Connell
getting the fourth. MackBlaine kicked
admirably for the Irish and turned three
of the tries into goals, though the last was
not allowed, as one of his team was on the
off side. When time was called the score
stood 2 goals and 2 tries to nil in favor of
the Irish. Of the other players Stewart
and Magill, for the Irish, and besides those
who scored goals, Hoblyn, Faulkner and
Newton, for the English, may be men
tioned as having done some especially fine
work, though where all were so good it Is
difficult to individualize.
No great damace was done to the play
ers, but to a certain extent Watmough,
captain of the English, was placed hors det
combatjearly in the Rugby game by a
heavy kick on the muscles of the thigh,
Lobb strained a sinew in his left leg and
Bradford and McGregor both had gory
noses. In the evening the contestants all
dined together at the Metropole.
The teams in full were as follow:
Full Backs Faulkner and Lobb.
Halves Cox, Hancock, Denison.
Forwards. Left Wing Magregor, New
ton. Center "Watmough, Wilkinson.

There was murh talk las eveng about
the game and all most highly pleased.
There seems no doubt but that arrange
ments will be completed in a few days for
another match and there will be no doubt
about a large crowd being in attendance.
Those present yesterday will spread the
news and at another game with fair
weather they would have a large crowd.
The boys seemed much pleased with their
visit to the city and with the assurance of
a large crowd will not be averse to an

To the Editor ot the Eagle.
If there is ever a time when the spirit'of
my ancestors rises within me and cries
shame to oppression, it is now. Every
right minded man who has read the re
port of our board of education must feel
that they (the board) stultified themsen es
most woefully when they said "Miss
was deemed by the majority of the board
the better qualified for the place of prin
cipal, but Mr. was elected." And
whyl Because a better or more experi
enced teacher? No. What reason? He
was a man she was only a teacntr, and
not a man. I say fie on a board that de
grades the name of manhood by such
action. Are we men and citizens of Wich
ita and allow this! We have languidly seen
the board accept work from bidders that
could give them long trips; we have en
dured school houses that were unfit for
shelter; change of text-books; we have en
dured all this without a sign. But that a
teacher, who by the reDort of the board it
self is best qualified to teach our children,
shall be set aside, and the training com
mitted to less efficient hands, simply be
cause of an unwise resolution of "no wo
man need apply," ia too much. I am no
tnmnr.' ni.hn mT. bnt 1 cannot endure
to see a woman wronged. My wife has no
use for strong minded women, but we
asree that leaching is one of woman's
spheres, and why pay a man as much or
more to do vhat a woman can do as well,
and usually does do better? Fie on your
resolutions! If no woman is to be princi
pal, if she is to have no inducement held
out to her here, your very best teachers
sull stav here only by endurance and will
look for a town where all teachers may re
ceive the position they merit, regardless of
I saw a ladv wronged bnt yesterday be
cause a vonth had asked for her position,
aDd the'firm took him because he was a
man. But that was only an individual
case and she with her aptness can rise above
that slight. But here the richts, not of
one, but of all our teachers, and the best
interests of our schools are at stake, and
shall we quietly accept slights thrown up
on our best teachers simply because they
are women? NV.er. The spirit of equity
that is pervading our city revolts at such
adsurdity, and, resolution or no resolution,
demands a restoration or her rights.

empowered to investigate building proper

not in attendance have helpful sugges

THE EAGLE'S MARKETS.
The attention of our readers who are
interested in the markets, especially the
Wichita market, is called to the fact that
more than ordinary attention is being
given to that department of the EAGLE,
and it may not be amiss for us to state that
so well pleased are our wholesale dealers,
jobbers and commission merchants with
our efforts in this direction that a number
of them are using the EAGLE in lieu of
any other medium for posting their out-of-town
customers on market quotations.
The quotations not only on the local mar
ket, but also the leading markets of the
country as given each day may be relied
upon with, implicit confidence as correct
in every particular.
CAPT. JOH B. CAREY.
Capt. John B. Carey, who has been at
home from his Pacific coast trip for several
days, but who, owing to the weather, is in
somewhat delicate health, came down
street yesterday morning, honoring the
EAGLE sanctum an ith a pleasant call of
half an hour. The captain, who, as every
body knows, is a man of varied and wide
experience and discriminatory observa
tions, declares that he finds Wichita all
right. He is making arrangements to
make quite a deal before his return to the
west, and has fixed no time for his depart
ure. "With the compliments of the season
and a wish for the continued prosperity of
the EAGLE the captain bid us good day.
THE HOMELESS ONES.
A note of the meeting of the officers and
directors of the Children's Home, in con
junction with the advisory board of that
institution, will be found elsewhere. It
does not take the Eagle to tell that that
worthy charity has a place in the hearts of
our men and women and especially in the
hearts of the young people. The truth is
they need much larger and more comfort
able quarters, a home that would be a
home and a home all their own. Many
plans and suggestions were offered at the
meeting touching the matter of a new
home. Some of these devices seemed to
commend themselves to the judgment of
the officers and board and in the near
future doubtless the ladies will put the
matter forward m a way that will burthen
nobody. Mrs. Foster, the president, is
pleased with the outlook and quite san
guine that victory will in due time crown
OT E FORCED.
Some of the leading commission houses
of the city are very much dissatisfied with
the way in which the license ordinance
passed recently is being enforced They
petitioned the council for an ordinance
imposing a license on those engaged in
the business to prevent the peddling from
"the track." The ordinance was passed
and three or four of the leading houses
paid license, but the fellows who had been
peddling have not ceased as it is claimed,
and the license amounts to nothing.
It is said another petition is likely to
become before the council at its next
meeting, seeking the enforcement of the
ordinance. But one of the merchants con
cerned said yesterday that that looked
very foolishas the council had nothing to
do with enforcing the ordinance, but sup
posed it might be able to start such agita
tion as might lead to the enforcement of
A LATE DEYEEOPEMENT IN THE SKETO
Since the death of Samuel Sketo by fall
ing from a train on Saturday night or
Sunday morning last, the Missouri Pacific
people have been quietly investigating the
matter and one one of McMahan's men
has made a discovery of some evidence
that virtually settles the matter. At the
time it seemed strange that no one saw
him on the train and it was no easy mat
ter to account for his being there. It
comes out now that a Mrs. atts living
near the Missonri Pacific depot saw aKeto
climb no on tOD of the passenger coach
Saturday evening shortly after 9. The
coach was standing on the side track at
t.imp. it beinc iusfc before the train was
made up. Although she knew Sketo she
supposed possibly he had a joo oreaKing
and dismissed the matter from her mind
at the time.
Mr. Marion Hughes, dyer of 1S4 North
Market street, was quite seriously hurt by
a gasoline explosion yesterday afternoon.
He was in a small shed in the rear of the
City hotel about half past four engaged in
cleaning a gasoline stove with a can of
gasoline near by. In some way, Inexplic
able to himself, the oil in the can became
ignited and hence the explosion. He was
pretty Dadly stunned and covered with
burning oil. Dr. Rentz reports his burns
as serious but as they are not deep he does
not regard them as dangerous. For a few
moments it looked as if a fire would result
and the department was called out. The
services of the fire boys were not needed
however owing to the prompt measures
taken by the bystanders who quickly
smothered the flames. No blamelseems to
attach to anyone and it is generally con
ceded that the accident was ia the cate
gory of the unavoidable.
BETTER AND BETTER.
With better weather the attendance and
interest in the meetings at the Emporia
Avenue M. E. church increases, the meet
ing List night being the best of all thus
far. The subject of Mr. Horner's sermon
was "Neither is there Salvation la any
other way," Acts 4:12. The sermon, with
the text illuminated in neat, bold letters
in a brilliant transparency made a deep
impression on the audience. At the close
a half dozen or more young ladies and
gentlemen publicly indicated their desire
to seek the better w3y.
Dr. D. W. Phillips, of College Hill, was
present and rendered very effective assist
ance ia the services. The music, lead by a
good choir with Mrs. M. E. Diehl at the
organ, was unusually nne abd added much
life and spirit to the services.
The subject for tonight will be "Qnench
not thy spirit," 1st The?. 5 19. Good mu
sic may be expected, including a solo by
Mrs. D. Smythe. The public is cordially
invited to attend these meetings,
Mr. and Mrs. W. S. Corbett entertained

U. S. Deputy Marshal Metcalf made an

character. As the party arrested stoutly

made now without prejudicing his case.

rector and vice-president.
Officer Gloverwas hailed last night by a
little boy and told the police were wanted

The secretary of the board of trade is
sending circulars to the manufactories of
the city requesting that they send a sam
ple of their work and business to the
board of trade to form an exhibit for the
visitors to Wichita and the board of
trade. It is thought to industries of the
kind in the city will have little hesitencv
in responding promDtly to the request. It
is believed an exhibit of this kind will
make a decidedly interesting one and the
only trouble will be to find room enough,
but it i3 believed good and suitable space
can be given and the board of trade rooms
will be furnished with additional interest.
The agricultural display will remain where
it is very neatly arranged. This gives the
visitors a chance to see some of the reasons
for Wichita. The display from the fac
tories of the city will supplement that
with showing something of Wichita or the
effect of the former being the cause. It is
intended to get the new exhibit in place as
soon as possible.
