The King Is Dead
The death ot King Edward last
week came not only as a shock to his
own people, but to the whole world.
The word had been made public of
his serious illness with bronchitis as-
signed as the malady, and that the
physicians felt some uneasiness, and
the very next day he succumbed to
heart failure and pneumonia. The
king of England was a world power
and hiB influence for peace both dur-
ing the reign of his mother Queen
Victoria, and his own reign of nine
years, undoubtedly went far in keep-
ing the world out of several wars. He
was a popular sovereign and had the
esteem and affection of his people.
His successor is his son George, who
has been acclaimed as King George the
fifth, and he is expected to follow
closely the liberal policies of his
father. King Edward, so long known
as the prince of Wales, was a sincere
friend and admirer of the United
States and never forgot the courte-
sies extended him upon the occasion
of his visit to this country when lfs
was a young man. He was a unique
figure, and will be voted among the
successful rulers of the era in which
he lived, and the most popular and
democratic of all England’s rulers.
Made a Good Showing
Our high school boys returned from
Stillwater the first of the week and
brought a couple of medals home with
them. Myers was second in the half
mile run for which he has a silver
medal, and Vance has a bronze medal
for winning third place in the ham-
mer throw. Wood just failed to win
a place in the quarter mile run, fin-
ishing fourth in a field of forty, be-
ing back in the ruck at the start, and
with a poor start, he really run a re
markable quarter. We are well pleas-
ed with the showing made by the boys,
and next year with anything like
systematic training we expect to see
them well up in front.

The special train load of Wichita
trade boosters arrived from Ponca
City Tuesday on schedule time at
1:30, but as they took 30 minutes in
which to finish their luncheon, the
wait proved tiresome to the school
children and the reception committee
as well. The Blackwell Commercial
club band and a number of citizens,
including a delegation from the col-
lege, met them at the Santa Fe and
escorted them up Blackwell avenue
to Main street. The sidewalk in
front of the high school building on
both sides oi the street were lined
with school children, some 700 of
them, and as the guests passed by,
they greeted them with welcome and
waved their flags in tune with the
cry. The band stand had been ar-
ranged at the intersection of Main and
Blackwell avenues, and President
Foster of the Commercial club, called
upon Mayor Peck to welcome them,
and although his honor had not been
expecting the honor he gamely rose
to the occasion, and made the best
speech we ever heard him make and
it did not take more than two min-
utes to make it either. Mr. C. H.
Sniythe in behalf of Wichita respond-
ed almost as briefly. The program
was of necessity brief, but we enjoyed
their visit and believe they enjoyed
being here. They distributed a world
of souvenirs, met a few friends, and
at about 3 o’clock left over the Frisco
for I^amont and Enid. The Eagle ac-
count of their reception here is as fol-
"Wichita must give the banner to
Blackwell. Never will the welcome
be forgotten. It has set a pace for
all. As the train pulled in a great
number of boys from the Oklahoma
Baptist college greeted it with college
yells and shouts of welcome. The
Blackwell band led the parade up the
town and all marched through the
street lined with school children all
dressed in white, waving flags and
shouting welcome. An industrial pa-
rade was given and Mayor W. R.
Peck, mounting the band stand, made
a Bpeech of welcome which was re-
sponded to by C. H. Smyth and A. B.
Moore. The Ladies’ Quartette of the
Oklahoma Baptist college, under Miss
E. H. Russell, and composed of Misses
Harris, North, Babb and Harris, gave
several fine selections. The Blackwell
and Wichita bands also helped the
program. The visitors were then ta-
ken in automobiles to a gas well and
were shown a gusher. This well be-
longs to the Union Gas and Oil com-
pany, which owns ten wells near town.
This well is 640 feet deep and has a
pressure of 350 pounds. After view-
ing the well the entire party was
treated to a ten-mile ride through 1
some of the finest country in the
“Blackwell is building its ow n light
plant. Already the arches are up
and ready for the "juice.” When com-
pleted all other “white ways” will be
out done. All towns are live wires!
First Presbyterian Cliureh
There will be preaching at
church next Sunday morning
night, April 15. By an oversight the
high school baccalaureate service for
next Sunday, was announced for this
church, which was an error. The
morning theme will be, “Lxive Infi-
nite.” At night the pastor will speak
on “The Protector of Saints.” The
public is cordially invited.

The County 8eat Case
J. S. Burger at Guthrie on Tuesday
appeared for Blackwell in the Kay
county seat case in the supreme court,
and J. F. King appeared for Newkirk.
The case was taken up and the New-
kirk attorney was giyen until Friday
next to say whether he would plead or
answer the allegations of the Black-
well attorneys. If he decides to an-
swer the court will appoint a special
master or referee and the latter will
appoint a time and place when and
wtiere all parties concerned may be
heard. The expense of this proceed-
ing will be divided equally between
Blackwell and Newkirk. So it ap-
pears Newkirk is not yet the “per-
manent” county seat, as advertised in
the Wichita Beacon.
