The Public School and School House Question.
Circumstances lorced upon our attention,
last wcekx soine of the needs ol the Wichita
public school and the embarrassments under
which the board of education are laboring.
Something ol each we laid before our readers.
A day or two following teveral gentlemen
ol tho board invited U9 to a conference, hav
ing under advisement the perplexing prob
lem ol "what to do." Tho question was
then, and still remains, unanswered. Until
made fully cognizant of the matters which
weio developed in the conversation alluded
to, we entertained no proper estimate of the
almost unsurmountablo difficulties that aro
and have been staring the board in the face.
The average parent is as much in the dark, no
doubt, as we have been, therefore this second
article. Succinctlj-and briefly then, wo set
forth a few existing facts together with a
proposition that seems the wisest and most
feasible with which to surmount the diffi
culties. Nearly two hundred scholars more aro re
ported this year than last, with one rom less
In which to crowd them. The total number
of children desiring school privileges this fall
and winter iu Wichita is but a lew short of
one thousand. Last year the board was com
pelled to pay, Iu way of rents, for poorly
lighted and illy ventilated small rooms the
urn of f S00. This year not one cent less will
secure the additional necessary rooms, if in
deed they can be had at any price. This
rent for extra rooms, then, would be a griev
ous burthen In and ol itself. Hcsidcs, the
rooms would be scattered, inconvenient, ex
posed to and annoyed by too great publicity.
To build up any nore additions to tho pres
ent frame building would prove dangerous
and unwise, a lact conceded by all. The rents
paid for tho use of two or three shells of
houses would have purchased both houses
and lots outright. The amounts paid for rent
would be considerable more than necessary
to meet the interest on bonds in an amount
sufficient to build rooms or buildings com
mensurate to the demands of the largely in
creased number of scholars. Again : any ef
fort to rent is but a present make-shilt and
will relieve the cities' wants but for a short
time. And still lurther : tho bonds of the
"Wichita city school district are worth dollar
for dollar, at least the outstanding bonds can
only be purchased at a round premium.
Tutting all these facts together, tho board
concluded, and wisely wo have no doubt,
that the only thing left for them to do in the
premises was to build, or, iu disgrace to
themselves and the city, close its public
As to the matter of building, but two em
barrassments confronted them, viz : time and
money. That the building should be a plain
large and cheap one, in accordance with the
Eagle's suggestion of last week, such an
ono as could be disposed of or used lor other
purposes in future was fully agreed upon, a
building that would be warm, solid and com
fortable, containing all the extra room that
would be desired for several years, still a
building without such ornamentation and
architectural outlines as cost only money
and adds nothing to utility. To think of
building a permanent city school building,
such as would meet the future requirement
and future pride and possibilities of the city
of Wichita was a proposition that could not
be entertained. From figures in the posses
sion of the committee it was very evident
that for the sum of f 5,000 or 50,000 a build
ing containing four large school rooms two
above and two below with necessary halls
and vestibules could be built. The interest
upon such au amount of bonds would be only
about one-half or what would have to
to be paid for the rent of poor, shabby rooms.
Upon the other hand, tho proposition sought
be submitted by the board would furnish
for a scries of years a building, though plain in
materials and proportions, yet roomy and
As to the question of time, if the board
will submit their proposition to a special
election and then if every uwn and woman
who is interested in having their children
properly schooled will go to work, the bonds
can be voted, negotiated and the building up
and our children into it by the middle of Oc
tober or first day of November. -
Unpalatable as some of these statements
may prove, they arc, nevertheless", plain, un
varnished facts, and the quicker we meet and
dispose of them, liku plucky and enterpris
ing men nnd women, the sooner our con
sciences ,will bo at rest, and the sooner will
we have erased what would soon become a
stigma upon the name of our fair young city.

The City of Wichita Financially ,and Its Pres
ent Administration.
No editorial labor is so genial as that of ten
dering deserved commendation, especially of
acknowledging worthiness upon tuo pari oi
public officers. A week since In looking over
Uie affairs of the county as controlled by the
Board or County Commissioners, wo found
much worthy of praise and laudation. Wc
found officers not only trying to do their du
ty, but succeeding, which was better. A spare
hour with the affairs of the present adminis
tration ol our city proved equally satisfac
tory. Everything appeared fair and honest
and much that was particularly encouraging.
At the time our present Mayor, James a.
Hope, took charge of the city affairs, in con
junction with the present Board of Council
men, the city had a total indebtedness of two
thousand, nine hundred and twelve dollars
hanging over It, with several street improve
ments to finish, the expenses incident to the
cattle trade to be met, and the ordinary city
government to be carried on. To-day the
city is not only clear of all debt of whatever
character, the expenses of the cattle business
met and settled, but on the first of tho month
there was over one thousand dollars in the
treasury. And this is hardly the best of it.
Mr. Hope is satislied that by the same rigid
economy and care, and the same amount of
forecast there will be no need of making any
levy of city taxes whatever for this year. In
accomplishing this, no paramount interest has
been neglected. The police force has been
adequate for all emergencies, and over eight
hundred dollars paid out iu the cattle busi
ness. With our scrip worth its faco, with all
needed improvements kept up and no taxes
to pay, whether the officers be Democrats
or Republicans, honor and commendation for
responsible duties conscientiously met and
performed shall not go unheralded by us, and
wc take pleasure in calling the attcntiou of
the people to tho facts herein setforth.
A very arbitrary circular was issued by the
Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fc railroad, to
shippers and freighters, under date of Au.
gust 7th, which provides that all cars must be
loaded up to 23,000 pounds, and not over 21,
000. The railroad reserves the right to scud
any or all of its own cars loaded with bulk
gram to elevators at Kansas City or Atchison,
where It will bo transferred at the expense of
the shippers, to the cars of the other roads.
Wc cannot see the justico of that, nor any ex
cuse, unless tho road is so short of cars that
it cannot do otherwise, and then it should
load only foreign cars for their respective
reads. Another requirement of the circular
will work a hardship to small dealers and to
farmers who may want to ship their own
grain, and it is this that preference must be
given to those having elevators or warehouses
and that cars will only be supplied which aro
to be loaded for tho next regularly out-going
train. One cent per bushel is charged for
transferring grain through au elevator and
two cents per bushel, with storage free, for
shelling, cleaning and weighing corn. Wo
suppose there have been abuses upon both
sides, but a great corporation like the Atchi
son, Topeka & Santa Fe railroad should at
least favor the farmer, in reaching the main
markets direct, should favor them to the ex
clusion ol even elevators and grain dealers.
We may not lully understand the full pur
pose of the circular, but wc well understand
that it is to the road's host interest to encour
age the small grain raisers of this valley to its
utmost, as elevators and grain buyers will
take care of theniselres.
Henry Shuman, that kind hearted farmer
friend whose neat place on Chlsholm is an
eye sore to all slovenly tillers, and who never
fails iu a semi-annual ollcring to his favorite
paper, came up yesterday with a basket of
the largest, juciest and ripest Kittatiny black
berries all garnished with fresh green leaves
that ever grew anywhere. They would have
mado even a West Jersey farmer turn red
with envy. Mr S. says they havo been bear
ing heavily and in great abundance for six
weeks and still tho vines are full ol green ber
ries. Iu the sauio basket were a lot of green
gauge tomatoes, if anybody knows what.they
arc like we never saw any before. In thank
ing Mr. and Mrs. S. for their good wishes so
delicately expressed, wo must say that one
great need of our people is small fruit. In a
year or two more indications arc that wo will
have apples, peaches, plums and cherries in
abundance, but the show for berries and
small fruits is not so encouraging. Strawber
ries, then raspberries, then blackberries, how
splendid ,aud wholesome they aro, and how
deliciously and closely they follow each other
when cultivated. This paying restaurants
forty or fifty cents a box for them is ridicu
lous when they grow so prolific In our home
soil. Let our larmer wives and daughters stir
up this 'berry question.
Wichita boasts as many superior workmen
and artistic mechanics as any city, large or
small, In tho State. To excel is the spirit
that seems to underlie her every production
and enterprise.howeversmallorgreat. These
out-croppings are what so universally and
quickly attract the attention of stram-ers.
Moscr's wagons, for instance, have a valley
wide reputation. Bordcau & Carter, of the
Champion paint shop, turned out one of his
wagons this week, tho painting and orna
mentation of which will be noticed wherever
its wheels may roll it. Not only is the orna
mentation attractive, but upon either side
and in front of the box ara very pretty paint
ings. The front is a marine scene with light
house. Upon ono side is a steam tug, of the
screw-propeller paltcrn,making for tho oiling.
Upon tho other is a beautiful yacht, under
full sail, and flying-from its main-mast is a
pennant bearing the name of the editor of the
Eagle. The farmer or frcightor who gets
that wagon will meet with no accidents wo
warrant. With other citizens wo aro proud
of tho work of our Wichita mechanics.
The largest, most brilliant and probably
the most successful party that ever whiled
away tho hours of a summer evening in
Wichita, assembled at the residence of J. E.
Caldwell last Friday night. The affair, which
was purely impromptu, was gotten up and
engineered by some twenty-five young ladies
who represented a majority ol the best homes
of the city. At the splendidly illuminated
lawn and croquet grounds an equal or greater
number of previously invited young men
made an early appearance, when, with lively
repartee, bright music, jest and song, that
corner of tho town was made to distinctly re
sound. An abundance of delicate refresh
ments disposod of and a moonlight home
stroll by pairs, and, at midnight, all except
tho bright dreams of fair maidens, was as
though nothing had been. As to the delicate
note of compliment accompanying the pretty
bouquet and rich abundance ol cake.designcd
for and tailing into the hands of ye Junior,
our silence shall be their loudest praise.
The Kansas City Exposition, which is ad
vertised elsewhere in the Eagle, for Sep
tember 18th to tho 23d inclusive, will eclipse
all others ever attempted by that high-pres-suro,
lightning-express city. For both vis
itors and exhibitors the attractions will bo
greater, as tho premium list is full of new and
pleasant features, and the amount of award
money reaches OTcr twenty thousand dollars.
There will be a big shooting tournament, a
bigger dog show and the biggest baby show,
with running and trotting races every day.
When money Is not given, gold and silvor
medals will be awarded. Tho racing premi
ums aggregate over five thousand dollars.
The railroads aro to make liberal reductions.
Mike Meagher, our City Marshal, trigged
out in his elaborately beaded and ornamented
scout's buckskin suit, would be tho envy of
Jumping-Squaw, Sitting-Short-Horn, tho Calf-witb-no-tail
and all the other leading chiefs of
the Black Hills, should they catch a sight of
his fantastic rig. Dave Lcwers, interpreter
of the Kiowa and Comanche tribes of "Indians
at Fort Sill, who was on hi way to his home
in St. Joseph, brought up this fantastic suit
and presented it to our City Marshal as a
tribute to his bravery and coolness. The
outside seams of the leggins are fringed with
the long, black top-knots of several defunct
red men.
Old Dick Farmer went swaggering up
street last Sunday with a shot gun on his

heavier shot and giro himscll up.

The above is a true picture of-the Kansas
State University, located at Lawrence, Kan

ture is a city surpassed by none in Kansas.
The University ,under the control of its scho

Notice is hereby given that there will be a
mass meeting of the Republicans of Wichita
township, at tho brick school house, on Sat
urday, August 19, 1870, at one o'clock p. m.,
to electa Republican township contral com
mittee. Major Hood has probably led all other deal
ers in this market in the magnitude and suc
cessful cattle operations this season. His sales
of through eattle havo reached eleven thou
sand three hundred two thousand of which
were purchased by Major Denman last week.
The prices realized by Major II. have- been
entirely satisfactory.
Jacob Heil, manufacturer ol cigars and
dealer in chewing and smoking tobacco of the
"best brands, as also in snuff, pipes and all
else that pertain, to tho consumption of the
weed, who lately opened up on Main street,
just north of the post office, comes before our
readers this week iu au advertisement. Mr.
Heil had gained a State-wide reputation be
fore he came here for tho excellent quality of
his cigars, and we havo no doubt will keep
up his reputation in this livo town.
Captain Tarlton left last Monday for a short
trip to Louisville, Kentucky, his old home.
We made no inquiries, but suspect more lino
thoroughbred horses is tho trouble. His
stable is the point now around which the
longings of good judges ol finely bred horse
linger. Captain T. said that he intended to
get us a half dozen of regular old up and
down,square,Kentucky Democratic subscrib
ers, just that they might see how mean a
Kansas Republican can write any how. Wo
fear tho result will be that his old frltnds will
not only forswear their allegiance to hard
soft Tilden, but leave old "Kaintuck" for a
home in tho Arkansas Valley. The Eagi.k is
"bad medicine" for eastern people, unles3
they arc extremely well situated.
Tho attention of our readers is called to the
advertisement of Messrs. Mcllardy & Co.,
who will oiler an unusually fine herd of Short
Horn cattlo at public sale on the fair grounds,
at Topeka, Kansas, September 0th. It is a
fact long sinco demonstrated beyond dispute,
that the grading up of our common stock is
absolutely necessary for profit. In the mar
kets of the country there is always a sale for
good stock, while inferior ard scrubby cattlo
arc sold at a loS3. Let our farmer give this
subject their attention, as we lully believe it
will pay them.
Two companies of the U. S. Infantry en
camped here last Friday. They were from Ft.
Reno, to which post they had been scut but a
few months ago, and were en route tor the
Black Hills, via the Yellow Stone route. A
large number of the members were old veter
ans, and, of course, employed the day hero in
getting glorious. Sitting Bull as well as all the
miner chicls were duly captured and scalped
before tattoo that evening, at which time sev
eral blue coats found their hair intact, but
themselves on the wrong side oi tho strong
bars of the vile Wichita cooler. A fow dol
lars in addition to those already expended for
fire-water, made all things square with the
city and by next morning every brass button
had vanished.
John Camnbcll. whilom ink sltnsrist, later
manipulator of dry goods in the great Neosho

clares that Wichita stands unrivaled.
Mr. John Exton returned from the Cen
tennial last Sunday night, accompanied by
his wife, both well and both having becu de
lighted with tho trip. Business cut short his
sight-seeing a week or two, but as he didn't
lorget to bring back four subscriptions for
the Eagle, he has our permission to go again
in tho fall.

Mayor Hope took tho balance left over ol

Tho SiDger Sewing Machine.
Over one million and a half in use. The
most durable and lightest running machine iu
tho world. As an evidence, tho Singer, Rem
iugton and Wheeler & Wilson were invented
about the same time and put into market, and
at the present day the Singer has over one
million and a half in use, tho Wheeler & Wil
son has about livo hundr;d thousand anil the
Remington has the small, insignificant num
ber of five thou-and nine hundred and tifty
thrce, which can be seen on the upper end .of
the needle burr, which makes tho Reiniugton
the last ctoico ol the people, and they would
not havo sold one quarter that number had
they not sold them under a fictitious name.
For many years the Remington machine com
pany have attempted to force their machines
on tho market as the Remington, but failed,
which reminds mo of several occurrences,
Fifteen years ago the third day ol July, I was
iu Blootniugton Illiuois, stopping with a
friend by tho name of D. II. Horner. There
were two agonts at the place, the Wheeler &
Wilson and the Remington. Tho Wheeler A
Wilson agent had confidence enough in his
machine to sell it on its own reputation, but
the Remington agent's confidence failed him,
and he attempted to sell it as the improved
Weed. Some five years ago, while I was sell
ing the Howe, I happened to meet an agent
that was selling tha Remington. He had as
little confidence in his machino as tho first
one I met, and he attempted to sell it as the
improved Howe, and 1 havo been creditably
informed that the Remington agents are sell
ing their machines here as the improved
Singer, which is fal-c. There i3 no improved
Singer except the original one, which cannot
be sold in the Southwest except by or
through me. Those who wish to buy tho
Remington are welcome to, but I deem it my
duty to inform the good people of thi ' South
west, through the columns of your paper, so
they will not be imposed upon in buying ma
chines. A machino that cannot be sold on
its own reputation should not be sold on the
merits of a machino that has been long tried
and proved, without doubt, the best in the
world. The impositions oilered are ol the
deepest dye. W. Mason,
