t i i I i ! ! 'i 1 1 i! THE WICHITA EAGLE, SUNDAY MORNING, JANUARY 24, 1909. 5 A '.'if si? INCREASES ITS CAPITAL Wichita Ice and Cold Storage Co., to Enlarge Plant. WOODS IS INTERESTED Becomes Vice-President of Organized Firm. Re- ACTIVE IN WE MANAGEMENT Will Devote Entire Business. Time to that Is not Just and according to law. When we have a complaint to make against any public utility about excessive Baa rates or poor light accommodations or anything of that sort we can telephone the city building and have It corrected without having to argue and quarrel over our rights at the counting rooms of corporations that let our grievances go in at one ear and out at another Each citizen will have the right to vote on every man connected with their government and all the commissioners will be responsible to each individual In town instead of to a few politicians who can get the "gang" out to vote for their man while good citizens are too busy to give their time to it. There will be no more swapping of favors among coun-cilmen at the expense of the people for unnecessary lights, fire plugs, street im- provements and the other things that cause such a waste of money. 'j Will the people come out to vote for the system? ISSUING PERMITS AGAIN EXTRACTION OF TEETH CAUSED HIS DEATH GEORGE W. HOLDRIDGE DIES OF BLOOD POISONING, One of the Oldest Horsemen In Wichita Having Come Here From New York Twenty Years Ago Funeral Monday. . CAPITAL NOW IS $150,000 An Increase in Stock From $50,-000 Is Authorized by the State Charter Board. One hundred thousand dollars additional was put into the capital stock Of the Wichita Ice and Cold Storage company yesterday, making the present capital $150,000. This was a move of great importance to Wichita. It means more buildings, more hands to be employed, and, above all, the concentration of a great business here. Mr. Charles Southward's fine business brain conceived the idea of get ting people from everywhere to store here and get advances of money on the goods stored, on the 'warehouse receipt" plan. This is what centralizes business here because Wichita banks have the money to loan on stored mer chandise and to swing a big trade. Apples and fruit of all kinds, eggs, poultry, vegetables and other perish ables can be put into this "greater warehouse" by the producers who can keep them there until market condi tions are favorable and have from 60 to 70 per cent of their value in money to operate with. It is not generally known, but it is a fact, nevertheless, that hundreds of orders are daily coming from California, Dakota, New Orleans and other points to commission men to buy pro ducts of this country when they are cheap and store them here until they are needed. It is the remarkable growth of this sort of outside business that induced Mr. Southward to have the capital increased and the capacity of the plant extended. It is not generally known that nearly eleven million eggs were stored with Mr. Southward last year, to say noth ing of other things. The eggs alone would make five trainloads of fifteen cars for each train. All the new stock this $100,000 blook has been taken "already,1 Delos Woods having bought qoite a block Of It. He becomes vice president of the company, instead of Mr. Elllsberry Martin, resigned. The new board as It .now stands Is composed of C. W. Southward, Delos Woods, Chas. H. Brooks, C. W. Brown, H. V.

Anderson as general manager. Mr. Woods will also devote his time to the plant, assisting Mr Southward and taking charge during his absence, Building Takes a Boom After a Few Days' Slump. Plans were completed and contract let yesterdav for the buildintr of a $7,000 residence for F. G. Smyth. It is to be located in the twelfth block on North Topeka avenue.

Holdridge, who has had charge of the track at the local fair grounds ever 6ince it was builded, and who is known to racing men in the East 'and West alike, is dead. Death came yesterday afternoon at 1:15 o'clock at his residence, 607 West Second street. ; .-'; - The extraction of height teeth about a month ago was indirectly the cause of death. Blood poisoning set in and with the best of medical skill he could not be helped. Mr. Holdridge had lived In Wichita twenty years. He was formerly man .ager of the Stewart Stock farm near New York City, where many noted thor oughbred racers were raised. He has been connected with the turf since he was 17 years old and was considered on of the racing authorities of the country. Mr. Holdridge was born In Victor, N. Y.. in 1847.

See Display "Windows STEWART IS HOME EMERGENCY MORE WARM WEATHER The opposition to the government by commission; law in Wichita has not a leg to stand on now since Representative Cliff Matson's bill amending it has been declared to be an emergency measure. This insures that change in the law which will silence the politicians and the ward-heelers who have been spreading poison against the new system. They will keep on of course the politicians will because under the old system they can remain to fatten at the public crib; but they cannot any longer deceive their followers with a lot of nonsensical prejudice and "fake facts." For sensible people the "emergency" privileges conceded to Mr. Matsons measure was not necessary, for they all know that the legislature would make the satisfactory amendments on the demand of four or five other Kansas cities that want the new ' business" government this year. Under the law we will now have authority to elect our commissioners every two years and get them out of office any time we do not consider their work and administration satisfactory. They will know this and will try and give satisfaction as managers of business do In private affairs. We can vote on our own large contracts and thus eliminate the possibility of boodling and grafting. We can also vote on franchises and thus prevent the raising of telephone rates or anything else the people don t want done. We must get a published statement every three months of the receipts and disbursements cf our money any thus keep informed on any recklessness and extravagances that maybe groing on. We will have an auditor who will be a legal check on the commissioners with power to hold up any account No Change for Three of Four Days, Says Bureau. The following special forecast was received at the local weather office from the central office in Washington at 12:4S p. m., yesterday: "Owing to the persistence and wide extent of the low pressure over the western half of the country and Alaska and the high pressure over the Atlantic ocean, it is possible that the present warm weather will continue for four or five days over the eastern and southern sections of the country and for three or four days over the centraL valleys. Over the Northwest colder weather may be expected tonight and Sunday, and by Monday over the northern upper lake region. Unsettled weather will continue over the North and East, and generally fair weather over the South." Believes Commission and State Fair Bills Will Pass. Senator Stewart returned yesterday from Topeka to spend Sunday at home. Mr. Stewart believes tba.tT.tbe coramis-sion bill will be rushed through" the legislature so that Wichita ' will know what it Is voting for at the special election. February 2. "There seems. to be no Inclination to oppose the speedy passage of the bill making the amendments desired in the commission law," said Mr. Stewart yesterday. "I do not anticipate that there will anything come up to block its passage. "There Is some opposition to a state fair. A good many legislators are ob jecting to the appropriation In the bill agreed upon by Topeka and Wichita. Hutchinson is getting these men in line and with the strength it holds in the western part of the state may attempt to block any state fair proposition if it cannot secure the passage of the bills favoring Hutchinson which have been introduced. They seem to think that It would be better to let things stand and retain the title of state fair which they are now allowed to use for the fair held there. However, I am hopeful of the passage of the state fair bill which leaves the selection of a location to a joint session of the legislature afterwards."
