SKIPPING ALL EXCEPT PERTINENT ITEMS WITH NAMES.


Evangelist M. LA. BLANEY and son will hold a mass meeting on Sunday, September 30th, at 3 o'clock at the Christian Church. As women are taking a hand in politics in Kansas, they are invited to be present. Subject: "The Politics of Heaven," is one of Mr. Blaney's most popular addresses. The sermon is full of hope to discouraged men on the text. "Watchman, what of the Night?" "Lo the Morning Cometh." The meeting will be called by the Blowing of Trumpets by the Band and the singing will be led by Mr. Blaney's son. Meeting free, but a collection will be taken, giving a chance for a free-will offering.

Don't fail to hear these special and absorbing themes discussed by a live man.

ARTICLE RE SANTA FE INTERESTING...

THE DIRECTORS WIN.

JUDGE FOSTER DECIDES THE SANTA FE CASE.

The Protectives Knocked outTheir Contention for the Cumulative System of Stock Voting Held Not to Hold GoodNew Directors Chosen.

TOPEKA, KANSAS, November 6. The present organization has won the fight for the control of the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe railroad, Judge Foster of the United States district court rendering a decision yesterday in the proceedings to make the temporary injunction permanent, which knocks the only prop the protectives had from under them. The court vacated the temporary order restraining the old organization from proceeding with an election excepting under the cumulative plan of voting and delcared that the cumulative system did not apply. The decision exhausted the subject and occupied about an hour in delivery.

New directors were chosen as follows.

The majority voted for Edward J. Berwynd of New York, James A. Blair of New York, William L. Ball of New York, B. P. Cheney, Jr., of Boston, Thomas P. Fowler of New York, C. S. Gleed of Topeka, C. K. Holliday of Topeka, Samuel C. Lawrence of Boston, John A. McCall of New York, George A. Nickerson of Boston, P. I. Bonebrake of Topeka, E. Wilder of Topeka, and F. K. Sturgis of New York, and the minority for Henry Clews and Theodore W. Myres, both of New York. Messrs. Bonebrake and Wilder are expected to resign at the first meeting of the board of directors and in their places will be chosen T. A. Osborn of Kansas and H. R. Duval of New York, who, because they were not stockholders of record at the time this meeting was called, were not eligible to election.

The minority votes were cast by E. N. Taylor of New York, who voted for T. W. Myres, and E. Summerfield of Kansas, who voted for Henry Clews. Each cast 106,205 votes, multiplied by thirteen, 1,310,678, on the culminative method, although the chair had announced that voting would be permissible only according to the rule laid down by Judge Foster in his decision.

ABSOLUTELY NOTHING OF IMPORTANCE.

ARKANSAS CITY, KANSAS, FEBRUARY, MARCH, 1895.

DEPARTURE OF EVANGELIST BLAINEY.

Evangelist Blaney closed his series of gospel meetings in this city last night, and left today for Arkansas City, accompanied by his son, who conducts the singing at these meetings. There is an originality about Mr. Blaney that is edifying, his departure from the prosaic methods seem more like scientific lectures upon Christian subjects. He is emphatic in his opinions, and expresses himself freely regardless of the toes he might be treading upon.

While the writer is too much of a skeptic to believe all the theories advanced by Mr. Blainey, yet there is an earnestness in his manner that ordinarily carries conviction with it. His sermons are argumentative, and not merely affirmations. His positions, at times, are extremely radically, yet he has that reasoning faculty, and oratorical ability, that gives weight to his ideas.

Evangelist Blaney is unquestionably the most forcible and logical pulpit orator that has ever visited Blackwell, and his series of gospel meetings here have undoubtedly resulted in much spiritual good to the community. Blackwell, O. T., Daily Times-Record.

Reports from Church Workers.

Section 1. Willing workers.

May the 18th we gave an ice cream social and lunches.

Receipts $13.85. Expenses $3.39. Amount cleared: $10.46.

MRS. LIZZIE FITZPATRICK, President.

This being the first social given since the organization of Willing Workers Association.

Section first is surely worthy of much praise for their success, and when it is known that there were three other socials that evening, it is surely an indication of good management to do so well.

Section 2. Receipts from supper held in A. O. U. W. Hall was $27.80; expenses $9.00. Net gain $18.80.

The universal decision was that Mrs. Doan and Listons management of the supper resulted in the preparation of the grandest supper ever given in the hall and the church was certainly honored as well as benefited by it.


OBITUARY - MRS. JALAY W. BRADLEY.

DIED. Mrs. Jalay W. Bradley was born August 27, 1827; died June 12, 1895, aged nearly 68 years. She has been a most remarkably energetic woman and one of the most self- sacrificing for the good of others. Besides her own children, she has reared several others who love her as dearly as they could an own mother. She was remarkably patient in all her trials and especially during her last sickness. Having been with her very frequently during the past three months, I can bear testimony that I never met a person who seemed to hold disease so easily at bay and whose smiles ever chased away any evil foreboding. Her smiling face shone continually out to bid a hearty good cheer and to welcome all who came to see her. One was always made better by having seen mother Bradley. Her children worshiped her and she also worshiped them, and desired to live for them and to enjoy their association. Hence she fought the approach of death, she desired to get well, but her desires have been gratified to a far greater degree than she anticipated and while we are weeping in the shadow around the eartly house of her tabernacle, she is resting sweetly in the Paradise of God. Blessed are the dead that die in the Lord. Yea from henceforth saith the spirit they rest from their labor and their works do follow them. It is well with her soul, she was faithful till death. She was beloved by all who knew her and as a testimony of their high regard the largest concourse of people followed her remains to the Parker cemetery that has gathered for years.

To the Churches of Christ Wherever this may Come, Greeting.

Dear Brethren: We take pleasure in saying that Elder J. Robert Norvell, our beloved brother and careworker in the gospel, has been sent out to solicit funds for the finishing of our new church building. He having been here with us for about two weeks and having delivered his popular lectures, which are everywhere hailed by the crowds who have once heard him, we recommend him to all who love our Lord Jesus Christ. He will explain the situation here and collect funds for the finishing of our work. Anything you may give toward this work will be gratefully appreciated and we will be glad to reciprocate in a similar way in the future.

Indian Territory. By Bessie West.

The recent rains in Oklahoma have much revived the crops in all this beautiful country and everybody is wearing a face of good cheer.

Flinn has one of the best schoolhouses in the territory.

The new railroad from Guthrie to McAlister is rapidly nearing completion.

The water has been lower in the Cimmaron and Canadian rivers this year than ever before.

There is great need of larger schoolhouses in the territory. Children seem to grow fast whether the crops do or not.

Cattle are getting fat in the Osage country. No wonder they do when you can drive from Gray Horse in the territory to Elgin, Kansas, without seeing a house except at Pawhuska.

It is though there are more wolves in the Seminole country than there are Indians.

A white man with a red mother-in-law is of frequent occurrence in the nation.

The citizens of Kekuk Falls have offered four thousand dollars and a donation of land to the J. Robert Norvell Chautauqua students provided they would build a ten thousand dollar institute at that place.

Note: Previous article stated that Niotaze was the headquarters of the J. Robert Norvell Chautauqua School system and that the J. Robert Norvell Library contained 32,000 volumes.

Also: There are four thousand volumes of the J. Robert Norvell Library set apart for free circulation among the students in Texas. We wish a similar arrangement may be effected for those in the territory.

The following item adds to the confusion!

The addition to the Church of Christ at Arkansas City is nearing completion as far as the stone work is concerned. Eld. M. La Blaney, pastor of the Christian church, has been out giving an interesting course of lectures of the Life-Line at Douglass and other places.
