TUESDAY MORNING, MAY 20, 1884. ALTHOUGH AND BUT THAT NOW. Friends, good morning one and all, good morning here is your Daily Although long delayed this greeting is being responded to with that eager promptness and hearty good will which has "made this fair, busy city what it is, and which guarantees a tucccssful future to its first full-fledged daily paper. And, Wichita is going to be a city. Wichita is not only to be the city of this greatest of great valleys, "but possibly, even probably, the city of the State of Kansas.

The cities in this State that lead Wichita, to-day, are but few, and the shadow of" each falls upon its neighbor so closely as to hamper the growth and ambitions of all. Wichita, upon the oilier hand, is without, a rival or even the possibility of a rival. But, the time has come when the 'conservation ol a steady development renders it imperative that our business interests should reach out to embrace more than the immediate environments. The character of Wichita's undisputed supremacy as a commercial point must be changed to that of a commercial rcutcrj aud the relation she has heretofore borne to neighborhoods aud adjacent communities must she- now bear to surrounding towns and cities. Wholesaling and manufacturing, to a comprehensive degree, must take the place of a former exclusive retail traffic.

No other agency will so aurely contribute to this effort as a dluTy paper going out into the stores, shops and offices of the various surrounding towns and cities, making known our ability and facilities for meeting all demands. Wichita is carrying larger aud finer stoeks of goods to-day than can be found in any city west of St. Louis, if we except Kansas City. These advantages can in no other way be so constantly and effective ly impressed upon the people whose patronage we desire as by and through such a dailj paper as Tjik Eagle will strive to be. That all this is thoroughly understood by the enterprising business men of this city it is hardly necessary to affirm in the face of the columns upon columns of their own declarations found in this paper.

The aim ofTnc Daily Eaglk, all of its best thoughts and energies, will be devoted to the cultivation of a community of interests which shall include Wichita first, and, secondly, the eight or nine counties of this lower valley which surround it, aud which composes, we verily bclie the fairest and richest domain to be found on God's green earth. If such an aim, backed by such a faith, seconded by the energies of Mich men as are represented in these columns, can make the proudest city in this laud, then, indeed, is the work already more than half accomplished. One word more, and that of a pcr- f-onul nature: It has been our life'h ambition to stand at the head of a daily journal. For this, in the early days of this city we severed ties which bound very strongly, left a people who not only sympathized with and sustained us for a long term of years, but who honored us over and again above our deserts, to come to a town in whose future we thought we saw some o.rtlie grand possibilities now being realized. For six ears past we have had laid away in boxes the necessary extra material for a daily paper, awaiting the auspicious hour when the demand warrant the venture.

In this we have been seconded by a majority of the members of the Kansas and Missouri Associated Press who held the telegraph franchise for us against all offers and ad schemers. With the majority of these men we have been laboring, in our humble way, for a quarter of a ccnttir) to make Kansas what she is. And, although our new daily must inevitably trespass upon fields hitherto occupied by them, it is a satisfaction to know that it is dono not only with their lull consent, but that they have persistently refused all others the privilege. Now, filled being the modest grasp of our ambition, filled the hands and head of Tun Daily Eaolk's business manager, filled, we FM SECRETARY OF STATE. wii -p I 4'C(li S'JfetjlY? Xs'irtr rk- r.rHV-i lr 4e- mrsiii! Ta HV 1 iSSfe mmmsmjM In making its first appearance before the people of Kansas, the Daily Eagle takes great pride in being able to adorn its iaitial 'number with a good word for E.

B. Allen as a candidate for secretary. The importance of this office to the people of the state cannot easily be overestimated. He has the control of the engrossing of all bilU and the custody of all the acts of the legislature, and by the lack of fidelity on his part, the change of a word, or perhaps a letter in a bill, might inflict immeasurable injur upon the people. He is a member of the executive council appoints our fiscal agents, our railroad commissioners and official newspaper.

He is a member of the board of railroad assessors, which alone is a position of the greatest importance. He has the charge of au incalculable amount of business, affecting directly the welfare of the people. Unquestioned integrity and tried efficiency are the requisites we need in that office. In these respects no man in Kansas holds a higher place than E. B.

Allen. He is conservative and he is safe. He is qualified, aud he is reliable, and his claims arc as strong as those of any other man. We earnestly urge him upon the favorable consideration of our fellow Republicans of the state. DRAWII Sr' 253- THEY'LL COTE ALL THE SAME.

Campbell took office as soon as he got to Kansas; he was made chaplain in the penitentiary. It is a soft- place. Your audience caunot ran away. You get a handsome salary, your feed, clothes, boots and shoes," all made by convicts out of goods paid for by the ax-pay era of Kansas. Preacher Campbell waxed fat.

He had a soft thing; a sure audience, good pay, no pastoral visit no irouoic auout samg souls Preacher Campbell is the fattest man we have ever seen in Kansas. We know all the editors and thousands of farmers ond mechanics, but Kansans are never fat men. They work too hard. The pioneers have had to break the prairies, build their houses on borrowed money, and pay off the mortgages no time" to get fat" When this preacher came litre he had no notion of going on to a farm or of going to work, ou a small salary, like other preachers. He wanted to keep his fat.

He selected the biggest stone building in the state for his home, with plenty of servants to wait on him, to feed and clothe him, aud to allow him to get fatter and fatter. When there was a change in the ad ministration and the preacher had to GRANDLY SAID. Charles Rcadc wrote his own epitaph. It is to be engraved upon a plain stone, and reads as follows: Here lie, by the side of his bcl oved friend, the mortal remains of Charles Rcade, dramatist, novelist and journalist. His last words to mankind are on this stone.

I hope for a resurrection, not from any power in nature, but from the will 6f the Lord God Omnipotent, who made nature and me. lie created man out of nothing; which nature could not. He cau restore man from the dust, which nature cannot. And I hope for holiness and happiness in a future life, not for anything I have said or dono in this body, but from the merits and meditation of Jesus Christ. He has promised his intercession to all who seek it, aud he will not break his word that intercession once granted, cannot be rejected for he is God, and his merits arc infinite.

'Him thatcomcth to me, I will in no wise cast 'If any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the Righteous; aud he is the propitiation lor our TICKETS TO THE CHICAGO TION. C0NVEN- Nearly two weeks ago we published an article intended to correct misapprehensions concerning the distribution of tickets of admission to the Republican National Convention, and to inform those desiring to attend how tickets may be obtained. But it is evident the matter is still imperfectly understood, and people going to Chicago to attend the Convention may he subject to grave disappointment and unnecessary expense. Wo would, therefore, request Kansas papers generally to publish the facts, which arc as follows: The tickets of admission to the National Convention arc being prepared under the supervision of the sub committee of the National Committee. They will be engraved, with coupons for each probable session of the convention.

The tickets will be numbered and allotted to particular seats, as is done in the theatres and opera houses. The owner will retain his ticket, aud as the coupon will be for successive sessions of the convention, this will prevent more than one person obtaining admittance at auy one session on the same ticket. The total seating capacity of the hall will not exceed 9,000. Theie are 820 delegates and 820 alternates, for whom seats will be reserved; 1000 seats have been allotted to the Chicago local committee subscribing the fuuds for defraying the expenses of fitting up the hall, policing, guards, and printing the proceedings; about 600 will be reserved for reporters of daily newspapers making specia' reports; and about 1000 lor distinguished guests, including Senators, Congrcss-mcuState officers, and others. The remaining scats, about 4,700, will be distributed among the delegates fi om the several States, pro rata, so that each delegate will have, in addition to his own ticket, from five to six for distribution among friends.

The delegates from each State will, therefore, have the distribution of the tickets, and they arc the persons to whom application should be made. We wish to also, that unless persons who propose attending the Convention have secured, in advance, the promise of a ticket, they had bet ter remain at Home. J. no pressure lor tickets is enormous go, he still had no idea of going to work. So he formed a co-partnership with Martin Van Buren Bennett, a Cherokee county Democrat, and the only man in Ihe United States who, during the war, published a paper called the Copperhead.

Bennett did this in Iowa. All the that the war lasted this traitor sat in hi3 office and abused the Union soldiers, President Lincoln and the patriotic men and women of his native laud. He did not join the rebel army, where he belonged he was just a copperhead snake, hissing, biting, running out his tounge at everything that was loyal anu patriotic "and true. More venomous aud cowardly even than the rattlesnake, which sounds a warning of alarm before it fixes its fanus and sends its poison into the heart of its victim. This was Bennett, the Iowa snake, aud this is his history.

He is the coparcener of the preacher. For a year and a half now the fat man and the snake have been travelling through Kansas aud collecting money to support themselves. They camoto Hiawatha aud begged and carried off almost a thousand dollars. Thcv came here during the Methodist conference, when they were sure of an audience. We saw them Van Bennett in frout, spitting and fuming, and the fat preacher in the rear, sweating, wiping the oil off from his face, shaking his fat sides over the snake's wit, laughing, very contented, very happy, aud finally toddling to the front and asking the people to subscribe for Brother Bennett's paper.

They collected a great many thousand dollars in Kansas, and the preacher keeps getting fatter and fat ter. No Eskimo, floating in train oil, is fatter or happier than Rev. A.B. Campbell. He has struck it rich and has no idea of floating out of his tank.

The coparcener, Van Bennett, is of the same frame of mind. He has plenty of money and has not been so happy since he yelped amT howled over the assassination of Lincoln. The show season has again opened and the Fat Man and the Sn ike gave their first exhibition in the opera house, at Topeka, Saturday, May 3d, giving two afternoon evening. The rent of the opera house for the occasion was one hundred dollars. If it has been paid at all it has been paid by the temperance people.

The showmen pay for nothing. Qampbcll charges for his fat aud Bennett for his venom We need only add that the purpose of the show this vcar, in addition to the passing around of the hat, is to defeat the nomination of John A. Martfu for jrovcrnor. Martin is a Republican, was a union colonel, and has alwavs earned his own living. Hiawatha World.

Among the demands -'made bv the Austrian socialist democrats in eae to the effect tluit America stall pet a stop to, emigration from Europe to this conatry. This is aot as carious as it may Beem at first glance. It' is true this conatry lias tong been regarded as the refuge for the" onnressed of En- rope, and hundreds of thousands of the people of that continent have fled to this country to fiud here tho freedom and opportunities denied at home. But the social and political developments of the past few years have put a new aspect upon the emigration question. The revolutionary- leaders of Europe now want to detain the uiousanils ot young and enterprising men who aro looking toward America for homes, in this they and such absolutists as Bismarck arc agreed, but for contradictory reasons and purposes.

Bismarck wants young Germany for his army. The" revolutionists there and elsewhere 'want the young men of the humbler classes as recruits to their movements for the overthrow of monarchical governments. So long, however, as this country presents such an inviting field for immigrate and offers such rewards to intelligence, industry and enterprise, neither the disposition of the princes nor the theories and promises of the revolutionists will keep the young blood of the old world coldly content with the restraints and disabilities of their life there.
