Chicago Journal. HAS MAN COXrKItED? With tho same techlncal exactness that would mark a description of a new locomotive or electric trans former, Mr. Walter Wellman, In this month's McClure's, proceeds to tell of the making and equipment of his ulrshtp in which a crew consisting of a few picked men will embark within the next few weeks for a voyage through the air of hundreds of miles. . Not only Is this voyago through tho air to be longer than any yet at tempted but It Is to be over country unknown, uninhabited and which has proven inaccessible to all the daring spirits who have attempted hereto fore to reach the polo. Hut Wellman calmly gives the facts about his camp add preparations and figures his voyage down to an exactness that resembles a schedule. Has man at last conquered spaco or are WeJImnn and his companion! to be tho latest victims of the two quests which have been taking the lives of adventurous spirits for cen turies? Wellman Is not an ordinary dreamer and his plan and his ma chine are tho results of the coolest scientific research and the highest technical and mechanical skill. Per haps Wellman Is to accomplish tho first considerable navigation of tho air and at the same time to be the first to reach the coveted goal of all Arctic explorers, that-Intangible point of absolute north where all ether drlectlons are south, but he hasNi, started yet and he has not returned." A STRIKING POSSIBILITY. With the completion of the church butidlngs now under way Amarlllo will have four handsome modern buildings, representing with their sites an investment of nearly $150, 000, "O npar each other that a few 'baseball players might play catch from one to the other. Of courita the baseball men will confine their work with tho horse hide to other sites but tho possibility for such a game of catch It one not offered In many Texas towns and Is one of which Amarlllo Hiy properly be proud. Tho fact that; four of the eight congregations In Amarlllo wi.lch own buildings are adding to the Institu tions of tho city on such an extensive scale a a substantial evidence of the character of panhandlo citizenship, rtsltors In Panhandle towns often remark on the large proportion of business mm who are regular at tendants on church services. The number and quality of the church buildings In any Panhandle town prove that the people of the com munity are liberal sharers of their prosperity In tho- building of churches. Churijhoa are vital forces In tho upbuilding of this big plains country and of thai. fact tin men and women who ar building the (owns show by lbelr work their full and active appreciation. Government and corporation env ployes in places where living expens es aro high will nolo with interest tho statemeut of the striking Hutte Mont., mull carriers that they are unnblo to live In nutte on tho pay given by the government. The six hundred dollars per year which the mull curriers get for tho first year Js an attractive Income for a begin ner In Spring Valley, Ohio, or Go sben Springs, Ala., but In Hutte It confines tho beginner to a scalo of living that makes bis lot a hard one. Then In Butte, us In other places Jn tho West, men aro In tho habit of expecting something better to turn up at any time instead of waiting a year or more for a suro Increase, Kxpenses and conditions In various places make fixed wnges a matter of only comparative value. The men In Hutte have a Just cause for griev ance but thq fault lies In tho city and section In which they are work ing and I'ncle Sam yil be unable to glvo ttii.Mii1 relief. 1 1 ,,Tyn riioPLi: hicakd from. ..... , . r 1 , Tho election on tho telephone franchise ounrrod yesterday, and resulted In m overwhelming victory fnr the opponents to granting a fratt- cIiIho to the old company, now doing IiuhIiichs in tho city, and In favor of granting a franchise to D.tvenport & Co., tho new applicants for the franchise. Tho editor of tho Panhandle was not satisfied with either of tho fran- (hlses, as n grant for twenty years In the future, mid so Btated In his columns, but he waa not a voter and had no hand In determining tho result. He did not use the columns of his paper for or against tho new applicants, or., the old company, ibut making a plain statement of the sit uation, opened his columns to both parties to thq,, controversy, leaving tho determination, of which compuuy should bo granted the f ranch I ho to tho voters, uninfluenced by any ed itorial In these columns, and being willing to let Hie'pqbple speak In tho matter and abide the result. ,Tho people have spoken, and In the niesstign their silently deposited ballots speaks, to the public service corporations, there 1 a lesslon which we wish at (his lime to emphasize. Tho sorvlce of the old company has been poor, and when complaint was made, it la said that tho man agement was Independent, arrogant, and failed to treat the public patrons as if they wore, entitled to consid eration. In the result of the vole of yes terday on the telephone franchise, the Panhandle sees not so much an endorsement of Davenport & Co., the new applicants for a franchise, as It does a protest against the rotten service patrons of tho company havo been compelled lo put up with and pay for without redress for months, and even years. Tho Panhandle sees In the result a warning to all public service cor porations, water works, electric light and street railway, that they must keep In close touch with tho public, and serve them asa private Individual would, and render value for the money they collect for ser vice, and live up to their contracts, ft Commissioners use 1 WET WEATHER WORM HFAI.THFM. dipaamt IF YOU WtAR WATERPROOF OILED CLOTHING ON VKL4UM Perfect Prntilion Lonftkt Servlco Low in Prlra Sold vrywhr or there will be n day of reckoning, and when that day comes, the people will right their wrongs. The panhandle sees In the result of yesterday's election, a better tel ephone service fur the clly of Ama rlllo, for if there should be two com panies In the field In future, they will have to render a good service, or they know what the result wll.l be. If two they will be compelled to compete, for public favor. If only one, it will know that they must live up to their franchise, and gLvo tho public a good service, or they will hour from the people. It is also a warning to the city council to see that the ordinance Is enforced In the letter as well as the spirit, nnd that the people In the future will brook nothing but tly boa of service from their public service corporations, nnd the council as their servants, must see that they get this. The re.uilt of yesterday's election must be pleasant to Mayor Miller, who Insists that he was elected by tho people to see that their Interests aro served, and will brook nothing less, ny telephono, water works, elec tric light or street cars. On the whole, the people have had tlWr say, and everybody wore a nolle today, and the Panhandle which believes In the role of the masses, Is satisfied and pleased, and hopes that the result will ha some tiling that will redound to tiie wol faro of tho general public In future. The editor has returned from bis visit 'lln the. editors, of Northwest Texas, at Plalnview, Invigorated by his couplo of days absence!,' ;id liv ing on the recently harvested crop of yellow legged chickens,' which liad been prepared for the editors of the Northwest Texas district, and he feels better than ever able to tacklo the problems' which dally confront him. Ho has got a wholo lot to say about Plalnview, its excellent poo plo, the Press Association, and tho elegant and hospitable treatment giv en the quill drivers at Plalnview, and Is going to give It to his readers In Installments within the-next' few days, as soon iib he can get his thoughts collected, and all the facts tubulated. THE APPROVAL 01' THE PEOPLE The Dully Panhandle is a demo cratic paper. It Is democratic in the broad sense of tho word, the rulo of the majority. It believes that the majority should rulo, and believes In all questions being submitted to the masses tor their determination. It is a believer In the Initiative and referendum, giving the people, who pay the bills for the, government the say as to . whut that gov ernment should bo. It Is therefore pleased with the re sult of Thursday's election on tho telephone franchise, and tnat the city council met last evening and granted to the company whoso pro posed franchise the people adopted by such n largo majority at the polls the francTilse for a telephone service In this city for the next twenty-five years. Tho editor of the Panhandle some time ago had some criticisms to make of the service given to the people by the Water Works Co., for which he was assaulted Since that time he has received the- personal ap proval of most of the best citizens of the city, on his editorials, and has been told that ho was right, and that, they were pleased that there was n newspaper In -the city which had the sand to refer to public ser vice corporations as they .deserved, commending our article which caus ed the assault on the editor nnd his later articles. He has been told by men closely connected with the In terests he referred to. tjhat he was right, and while they deplored tho sssault, they approved tbe. articles which provoked the assault, and. tp.o articles which followed, and told the editor that ho was not much out of the way In any statement bo had made. Theso references are only made to show that we have tho masses of the people with us, In our efforts to have public service corporations give to the city a proper service. Mi The Panhandle Is pleased to nolo thl Mtlilwl hclliir t'.lttft fin. tilt Itf.ntiln by Mayor Will A. Miller. Mr. Miller holds that ho made promises to the citizens of Amarfllo when he was a candidate , (or office, when he pro poses to scrupulously carry out to the letter In so fur as he Is able. He has kept his word with the people relative to the telephone company, now he promises that the Water Works Co., must, as scrupulously carry out their contract with tho people." He will not spilt straws, and will not hh any Impossible ser vice of the water works people, but he will Insist thut ull that Is possible to do to give tho public a proper service, i,o done, and nothing less will satisfy him, In the mean lime the Dally Pan handle will stand s a guard fiver the rkhts of the masses of tho peo ple, and whenever they are trifled with by th pub'.'c servleo corpora tions of the city, Jt he Panhandle will be heard from. The editor of the Panhandle In his northern home, before coming to the panhandlo h.ul heard 'of the beauties of the Southern mocking bird, and he had seen tho bird and listened to bis beautiful singing, In captivity, but It remained, for his Plalnview trip to bear the bird, wild and In his natural home, give vent to his pleasurable warbling. Plain view Is a city of beautiful homes. There, where (ho water Is shallow, every home has Its own windmill, and with the water so easily brought to the surfaco, they Irrigate, and t!ilr hJimes are surroiinifed with fieautlful orchards, nn.l shade trees. At any hour of the day or night, these beautiful hlrds may be seen and heard, perched on the windmills, the tall treea or the ridge of the house, singing their beautiful songs. It was a slht and sound greatly en Joyed by the editor, who has an eye and an ear for the beautiful in na ture. Amarillo Is aii right. While there nro other clt;es In tho Panhandlo which are making phenomlnal prog ress, there Is none which Is making more rapid strides thnn Amarlllo. With tho business, bloclu hclng erected this year; with the projected and contracted new churches, opera house and railroad Improvements to be made during 'Ihe present year, Amarillo Is golsg' to continue to forge to the front. Heal estate own ers should take conrage, and hold on to their property. There Is yet room for good residences to rent, and the man who owns well located business or residence property, has u good Investment. (JET READY FOIt TIIE MAYORS. Amarlllo will be called upon to entertain the Miyors' association of tho state on Friday and Saturday of this week. At the meeting of the executive committee, Mayor Miller went with an Invitation from the city of Amarlllo, and It was accepted. Now every' citizen of Amarillo la un der obligations to back our worthy mayor In his Invitation, and make good, or In other words, deliver the goods. Amarlllo stores should decorate their places of business, and the city When You Want Pur White Lead, Get It Probably there is no other article of com. merce subject, ed to so .11 much dul. tcra. tion and mis- ?t Pre sentation HI White Lead.

Ev ery citizen should appoint, himself a committee of one to back the mayor In delivering the goods he promised the mayors of Texas, If they would hold their stato meeting here. The mayor will be busy preparing for them. Every business house and property owner should take a pride In putting the city in the best pos sible condition for the reception of the visiting mayors, so that when they leave Amarlllo, (hey will be glad they had called their meeting In the young, progressive, Queen City of the Plains. It Is., understood that representa tives of tho government were In Amarlljo Saturday relative to the fu ture permanent location of tho gov ernmental experimental station. That they were offered 120 acres by Mr, Bush, of Chicago, about three miles from the city on the new Rock Island grade west of the city, and were sat isfied -with It, provided the city would raise $3,500 to defray the ex pense of removal of the farm from the present location, and establish ment at the new place. Part of the money required has been already subscribed, and there ought to be no doubt about tho raising of this amount. The representatives of the government were In Dalhart today, which wants this experimental farm, and has offered the land and $4,000 to defray expenses of removal. How ever, If Amarlllo raises the desired amount, the station will remain here, and there should be no doubt of it being ejislly raised. The Daily Panhandle pays Its com pliments to tho thriving, beautiful and enterprising little city of the South Central Plains, Plalnview, to day. The first time the editor has poked his nose out of Amarlllo since coming to the Panhandle last No vember, was his trip to Plalnview, and his meeting with the newspaper men of this portion of Texas. He enjoyed his recreation, his visit with the editors, and his royal treatment by the citizens of Plalnvlow, and he wishes to take off his hat to the cit izens of that enterprising city, as tho most royal entertainers he has ever met. If his future visits to other Texas cities proves that all cities of the Lone Star state are peo pled with the samo class as Amarillo and Plalnview, Texas and the Pan handle mny yet claim him as a per manent resident. THE MAYORS ARE COMING. On Friday and Saturday of this week, the mayors of Texas will be the guests of Amarillo. The meet ing of the Mayors' Association was invited to come to this city by Mayor Miller, backed by Commercial club. The Commercial club Is not as strongly in evidence at this time as If. should be, and but little Is being done by that organization to arranga for the entertainment of the conven tion. In cosequenee, Mayor Miller called a meeting of the council and city officers for this afternoon, to arrange for committees to properly look after the entertainment of tho mayors. A list of the committees will appear in tomorrow's paper. It Is the duty of every citizen placed on a committee, to give the work of the committee his best in tentlon, and do everything In his power to make the meeting of the Texas mayors In the queen city of the plains a most pleasant and agree able one. A barbecue will no doubt be a feature of the entertainment. The hand will furnish music and citizens should throw aside business long enough during tho stay of the may ors ii the city, to see that every thing s made pleasant and agree able for them. The reputation of Amarlllo as a convention city s at stake. Let the mayors go away with a feeling that they were welcome, nnd that citizens fully appreciated the Importance of the. task they had In hands In en tertalnlng so representative a body of citizens of the state, and let the visitors carry with them the Idea that Amarlllo makes good when she Invites a convention to meet here Tho Dally Panhandle proposes to do its purt. Let every citizen und bus iness man do tho same. Will Amarlllo hold a fair this year? We have asked this question many times In the past, but have elicited no response. Amarlllo cltl zens should not become so busy that they forget their duty to citizens of the surrounding country, which looks to Amarlllo for amusement und entertainment. We want these people to trade with us and our wholesale firms, and In return, we should always be ready to entertain them. Let us have a fair and race meeting, by all means. It Is of great Importance to the farm and stock In terests of the country. HOME COMING TO WISCONSIN Special tc Dally Punhandlo. Madison, Wis., July 2.
