The proceedings of the county commission

S. C. Johnson, county treasurer, has gone to

Jtr. Pride, our street commissioner, exhib
ited to us a specimen lot of ilean, coarse
era el, which he sa. ran be obtained in inex
haustible quantities in a bed or bank very
close to town, and which Is entinlv accessible.
This street grading is becoming a prions and
important question to our property holders.
j It affects not only the present, but the future
weuare oi me place, in mat in wet weather
strangers are apt to be unfavorably impressed
w ith the location of the tow n. The amount of
rain iall has been extremely great this sum
mer, and we hav c but little doubt in fact, we
know that c vera! capitalist pointed to the
con Jition of Main street as the only reason for
not investing. We can hardly hope that the
present exceedingly flush times will always
continue. Then even- one must admit the
necessity or wisdom of getting the largest pos
sible number or substantial capitalists inter
ested in Wichita, to the end that when slack
times do come vve may have such to stand by
us for the ake of their own investments and
interests. We are satisfied that our drainage
is sufficient, and that at a comparativ ely tri
fling cost all mi h objection" might be removed.
We all understand how little it often takes to
disgust a stranger seeking a location for per
manent inv estment. Our ow n conv ict Ions are
for the curbing and flag-stone guttering or
Main street its entire length from the Empire
House to Douglas av enue. With suth an im
provement a dirt and gravel grade will serve
every purpose mr jears to come; without it
our mud gutters vv ill fill up and the street at
times become almost impassable. We throw
out these suggestions for the consideration of
our council, whom vve have evcrv reason to
believe desire to act for the v err best present
and future interests of our citv.
Last week we noticed that one Samuel Teats
had been arrested by Mike Meagher, upon a
telegram from Alleghany City, Pcpn. Within
a day or two after the arrest, a man represent
ing himself as II. F. Clark, chief of police of
the above dty, made his appearance, provided
witli a requisition from the governor of Pcnn
sv Iv ania. The night of Clark's arriv al Teats,
with other prisoners, was furnished tools, and,
but for timely discovery, would have made
his escape in a few minutes. The next night
Clark hand-cuffed Teats and put him aboard
the north-bound train. While lie was procur
ing his tickets his prisoner walked .out of the
car and out into the dark and liberty. The
pretended chief made no attempt to recapture
his bird, but took the train and left. There is
a strong suspicion that all is not as it should
be. A thousand dollars had been offered for
the arrest of Teats, a per cent, of which Clark
forked ov er to Mr. Meagher. We believ e the
latter officer has addressed the city authorities
of Alleghany upon the subject.
A warm friend of the Chappaqua philoso
pher, in cam assing for a new enterprise that
promised to forward the political fortunes of
Uncle Horace, dropped into the well-known
grot cry hou-c of Todd & Uov al, the other day,
v here he found eight or ten gentlemen quietlv
ciijoviug themelves. The occasion was all
his own. the moment propitious, and our
friend sailed in, first with a statement of what
he was going to do, and secondly with a prop
osition to tet the political sentiment of his
audience. The result w as solid : but it takes
Uncle Todd to describe the lugubrious voice
with which our friend gave his one, single,
lonely vote for Greeley and Brown.
Mr. Marsh, the principal freight and passen
ger agent at this place for the A. T. & S F. R.
It., informs us that their is rest neither night
or day, for him or his assistants, so great is the
rush of business. Some confuion is necesa
lily consequent upon su.h a ruh, which our
business men will please licar in mind. Char
Icy Marsh desires to do the proper thing, in a
businesslike manner, as docs Mr. Kenedy, his
principal assistant, and when anv thing fs not
right he hopes jwrsonal application will be
made to secure a projier adjustment.
LastTuesdav afternoon a cook in the employ
of Mr. Bums, a Texas cattle man, got into an
altercation witli a Mexican about the cooking
of some dinner, when the Mexican shot the
cook through the left breat. The man was
living an hour or two after the shooting, but
there was no chance for him to recov er. W
did not learn the name of either party. The
Mexican immediately left on a horse for parts
unknown, and Mr. Bums came to town for
medical assistance.
Card. We would respectfully call the at

" How to fio Est." By the Kansas City,
St. Joseph and Burlington route. '-Though

and its tnitli is again exemplified bv the com

called the best route in tlie west.
Tlie line consists or the Kanas City, Saint
Joseph and Council Bluffs railroad, with two
daily trains from Kanas City, through Atchi
son. Leavenworth and St. Joeph to the Mis
souri state line, there connecting with the
Burlington route, which leads direct to Chica
go, Cincinnati, Indianapolis, Logansport and
Columbus through car? arc being run to ail
these points.
This line in well built, thoroughly equipped
with even- modern improvement, including
Pullman's sleeping and dining car, and no
where cNc can the passenger so completely
depend on a speedy, saTe and comTortable
Jo-ruey.
The Burlington route has admirably answer
