Arkansas City Traveler, March 27, 1878.
DR. CARLISLE, of Knox County, Ohio, had a letter of intro­duction to Mrs. Gray from some friends in the Buckeye State [Ohio]. He came out last week and has concluded to locate among us. The Doctor will turn his attention mainly to stock raising.
Arkansas City Traveler, July 17, 1878.
DR. CARLISLE, lately from Mt. Vernon, Ohio, and now located in the banner township of Bolton, has been induced to resume the practice of his profession, and is on the go most of the time now. We wish the doctor success in his new field.
Arkansas City Traveler, September 11, 1878.
Frank S. Denton died Monday morning about six o’clock from congestion of the brain. He was thrown from a mule about one o’clock on Sunday, September 8th, and was found lying insensible by Mrs. Brash. He was taken to Thomas Parvin’s house, where he died in the presence of his wife and three physicians, namely, Dr. Hughes, Dr. Shepard, and Dr. Carlisle. He did not speak a word. The shocking news was received at this place with many regrets. We have known Frank Denton as long as we have known Arkansas City, and always found him to be an upright, moral, and conscientious man. Thus passes away another one of the early settlers of this section. Our sympathies are extended to the bereaved wife.
Arkansas City Traveler, September 25, 1878.
Mrs. F. S. Denton desires to express her thanks to Mr. and Mrs. Parvin, Mr. and Mrs. Carlisle, Mrs. Brash, Mr. and Mrs. Harkins, Mr. Mowry, and many other friends and neighbors who assisted in caring for Mr. Denton during his last hours.

                                                      Stockmen’s Meeting.
Pursuant to call a number of stockmen met at the office of C. M. Scott, in Arkansas City, Kansas, and organized by calling Mr. John H. Tomlin, of Winfield, to the chair and C. M. Scott, Secretary.
The following gentlemen were present: W. J. Hodges, John Myrtle, John Love, J. M. Love, Weathers, Tipton, Chinn, Wicks, D. Warren, Hugh McGinn, J. H. Saunders, Moorehouse, Dr. Carlisle, and others.
On motion a committee of three was appointed to settle all claims of stockmen with the parties proposing to fence, or any other whose interests might conflict.
Committee: W. J. Hodges, Chairman; Drury Warren, and C. M. Scott.
Mr. Weathers thought the Oil Company had no right in the Territory, and did not believe in adjusting matters with them. Thought they should not be recognized in the meeting at all.

Mr. Hodges thought if they paid the tax and complied with the law, they had as much right as anyone to the unoccupied range, and that we should not expect the range to lay idle, and that it would not, and anyone claiming it and paying for it would be protected, whether they were of Kansas, Pennsylvania, or England.
Mr. Chinn said if a man paid, he had no protection against Texas cattle, to which Mr. Hodges replied; only through the Stock Association.
Mr. Warren didn’t see any harm in the Oil Company occupying the range as long as they interfered with the rights of no one legally there.
Mr. Love is on the west side of the range they propose to fence. He hasn’t paid his tax. When he stopped there, he did not expect to remain long—was going farther west, but finally concluded to remain. He then rendered payment to the Treasurer of the Cherokee Nation, and his offer was refused, although he was first on the ground, and had conflicted with no one; and after they had refused, the grant and privilege was given to Mr. Gore. He did not believe in discriminating in favor of a monopoly, and that too, when they were not on the ground, and have not yet a hoof of stock on the range. He said there was no fairness in it, and that the Oil Company were only acting fair since they could do no better. That they had tried to shut out all alike and would have done it if they could, and he appealed to the stockmen to stand by him as he had stood by them.
Mr. Hodges thought Mr. Love’s case one of merit, and that his right would not be ignored.
On motion the meeting elected Mr. Tomlin, Mr. Love, and C. M. Scott a committee of three to forward the grievance to Major John Q. Tufts at Muskogee, Indian Territory.
On motion Drury Warren, Mr. Wicks, and Mr. Weathers were appointed a committee of three to attend the meeting of the Cherokee Strip Stock Association, to be held at Caldwell March 6, 1883.
The following resolutions were introduced and passed.
Resolved, That it is the sense and desire of this meeting that no quarantine ground be established east of Bitter Creek.
Resolved, That no through Texas cattle be permitted to be driven along the State Line east of Bitter Creek, or within four miles of the line during the summer months and that we will use our best endeavors to prevent such doing.
Resolved, That each and everyone of us become a member of the Cherokee Strip Association, and that we stand by one another in the protection of our rights.
On motion the meeting adjourned.

BIRTHS. While “A Nonyma,” “Vindex,” and “Laity” have been quarreling over the code, our friend, Dr. Carlisle, of East Bolton, has been going around like a ministering angel, and the following is the result of his labors for two weeks: To David Branson, and wife, of East Bolton, a boy; to C. C. Wolf and wife, of Central Bolton, a girl; to Mr. Vanskike and wife, of East Bolton, a boy; to Isaac Key and wife, of Bolton, a girl; on March 7, to L. D. Skinner and wife, a girl. This is a pretty good record for Bolton Township and we trust she will not weary in her good work.
Arkansas City Traveler, March 26, 1884.
Accidentally Shot. Last Sunday afternoon, during the absence of Mr. and Mrs. Dennis Harkins, of East Bolton Township, their son John, age 13, opened a drawer which contained a revolver. Taking it out, he was showing it to his youngest brother when by some mischance the weapon was discharged, the ball passing completely through the leg of Fred Harkins, aged 9 years. The pistol was a self-acting No. 40, and consequently it is a matter of congratulation that nothing more serious than a flesh wound resulted. From the appearance of the bullet it is thought the bone was struck, but Dr. Carlisle, the attending physician, thinks the bone is not injured to any great extent, and that the patient will soon be around. We trust this will serve as a lesson to all who read this, and teach them to let firearms alone.
Dr. Will Carlisle, son of Dr. Z. Carlisle...
Arkansas City Republican, April 5, 1884.

Our readers will notice in our columns this week the professional card of Dr. W. M. Carlisle, who recently opened an office over Matlack’s store, and has begun the practice of medicine in this city and vicinity. He is a son of Dr. Z. Carlisle, who lives a few miles in the country, and graduated this year at the college of medicine at Columbus, Ohio. He practiced his profession last summer during vacation in the state of Delaware. He is a young man of excellent moral character, and good intellectual attainments; is very studious and attentive to business, and we hope for him much success in his profession. He has already been employed in several cases with marked success.

                                                     Arkansas City Victorious.
The much talked of game of base ball between the Actives, of this city, and the Geuda nine, for $100, was played at the city of healing waters on last Friday, the 4th. The mineral water drinkers have been playing town ball with some of the rural clubs, and so general was their success they got wild and concluded to play for “stuff.” In setting upon a victim they singled out Arkansas City’s club, and after a sucker play here several weeks ago, in which they plainly gave the game away, they challenged the Actives for a $100 game. This was promptly accepted by our boys, and they now have a cool hundred stowed away, not to mention side bets. The Geuda boys imported a pitcher from Oxford, and they can thank him for keeping the score so low on our side. Three innings were played before our boys got onto the balls, while the Geudaites had six tallies to their credit. Then the Actives got down to work, and by the eight inning the score stood, 14 to 8 in favor of the Actives. In the ninth inning the united strength of the seven mineral springs was brought to bear on their dark prospects, but the Geuda only succeeded in bringing up their score to 13. They still being one short, the umpire called the game, the Actives not playing their last inning.
Final score: Actives 14; Geuda 13.
Our boys naturally feel proud of this victory, and of thus maintaining the credit of Arkansas City, whose clubs have never yet been beaten. Dr. Carlisle was the umpire, and we are informed his rulings were acceptable to both parties. None are disposed to kick except the outsiders, who were so foolish as to bet against our irresistible nine. The following note, in connection with the game, explains itself.
                                              ARKANSAS CITY, July 1, 1884.
Mr. Geo. Wright, Captain:

DEAR SIR: In behalf of Saturday’s victory for the Arkansas City base ball club, allow me to present to the boys a genuine A. G. Spaulding league ball, with the hope that you will take it through more victories in the future. Yours, A BACKER OF THE BOYS.
The boys return their sincere thanks to their unknown friend, and assure him they will ever do their utmost to keep victory perched upon their banners.

                                             The Representative Convention.
The district convention met in Highland Hall last Saturday, August 30, at 2 p.m., and was called to order by Dr. H. W. Marsh, chairman of the district committee, who was also elected temporary chairman. L. J. Darnell and Dr. P. Marshall were elected secretaries.

Nominations then being in order, J. R. Sumpter presented the name of L. P. King. On behalf of Bolton Township, R. L. Balyeat placed Dr. Z. Carlisle in nomination. Bowen Lewis, of Creswell, offered the name of J. R. Tucker, and J. A. Cochran nominated S. G. Castor, of Liberty.
The first ballot resulted as follows: King, 7; Carlisle, 8; Tucker, 10; Castor, 8.
The balloting proceeded with little change until Tucker withdrew on the seventy-second ballot.
The seventy-third ballot stood: King 13; Carlisle, 14; Castor, 6.
Castor withdrew on the eighty-eighth ballot, and the eighty-ninth resulted in the nomination of King by a vote of 19 to 14. Mr. King’s nomination was then made unanimous.
The following district committee was then elected.

                                                         Our Representative.
Last Saturday afternoon, as we announced, the nomination for representative occurred in Highland Hall. Each township in the 67th district had her entire representation there. Four candidates were placed before the convention, as follows: J. B. Tucker, of Creswell; Dr. Z. Carlisle, of Bolton; L. P. King, of Beaver; and S. T. Castor, of Silverdale Township. The delegates of each candidate came to the convention prepared to stand by their man to the last. A good-natured determination was displayed all through the convention. Although the workings was long and tedious, the utmost good feeling prevailed; 89 ballots were taken before a choice could be made, and resulting in the nomination of L. P. King, of Beaver Township. On the 68th ballot, Creswell’s choice arose and withdrew his name from before the convention in a neat speech. Mr. Tucker’s action created a number of warm friends for him, and undoubtedly they will remember him in the future. When he made his withdrawal, Mr. Tucker still had his entire representation. They stayed with him until he refused to accept, and even then he headed the list of the candidates with the largest number of votes. Mr. Tucker saw that a deadlock had been formed and unless something was done, the delegates might yet be sitting there balloting and Dr. Marsh informed them “no election had occurred.”

Bolton Township never wavered from Dr. Carlisle, nor Silverdale from S. T. Castor; until the nomination was made, when Mr. Castor withdrew.

Arkansas City Republican, December 6, 1884.
It was Mrs. Dr. Z. Carlisle’s aunt who died last week, instead of her sister. We are sorry to say the report of the “fortune” which someone said had been left to Will by the deceased is untrue.

To my friends I will say bye, bye, and remember you will always be welcome to a rough meal, at my house, wherever I may be.
To Langfeldt’s “conceited ass,” who made so many trips to Winfield, and begged so hard for a certificate, and wept so bitterly when he got 56 in mathematics, to him I will say, that I may go for prowling tom cats, but I never go for my neighbor’s peach orchard with a sack, nor early to his cow corral with a milk pail. But every man to his taste. One may prefer stealth by sacking his neighbor’s fruit, while another may choose the early morn to gather the lactic fluid from his neighbor’s kine. All of which is the outgrowth of an infidel training which has for its end neither virtue, principle, nor common decency, but rather the seeds of unmitigated villainy. Z. CARLISLE.
Arkansas City Republican, April 11, 1885.

A. A. Newman, T. B. McConn, and Dr. Carlisle attended the meeting of the presbytery from here.
Arkansas City Traveler, January 6, 1886.
The resignation of Rev. S. B. Fleming, having been referred to the presbytery to consider, that body met in Wichita on Thursday last, Messrs. Huey, Newman, McConn, and H. Carlisle, representing the congregation, being among the members. After a full discussion of the matter, it was considered advisable to retain the Rev. gentleman in his present pastorate another year. This will be gratifying to the people of Arkansas City, who recognize in Mr. Fleming a useful and progressive citizen as well as an able and zealous churchman. We understand that without solicitation, an addition of $300 a year has been made to his salary.

Three years ago Dr. Z. Carlisle had a “buckskin” pony stolen from his ranch south of his farm. Monday the doctor saw two Indians going through town with a pony that resembled his long lost “buckskin.” When the pony was in the doctor’s possession, he had taught him to bite at any person when they pointed their finger at him. “Doc” remembered this, so he walked up to the pony and stuck his finger out at him. The pony had not forgotten the training of his youth. He took after the doctor and ran him a half block before he let up. “Doc” had no doubt but what the pony was his. He followed the Indians to Winfield and there recovered his animal.

He could not do without news and in order to get it he will ride to town each day and get a copy of the REPUBLICAN.
