Mr. Amos Walton, editor of the Plow and Anvil, started for Douglas County last Monday, to be gone about twenty days. Charlie McIntire will hold the plow and Tom Copeland will sit on the anvil till he returns. The paper shows marked improvement already.
Winfield Courier, August 12, 1875.
That wasn’t an immigrant train that came in late Saturday night from the south. That old wagon sheet had under it Tom. Lowry, Tom. Copeland, Will. Slemmons, and Add Powers, and we don’t know how many more. They had been out to the picnic, and were taking advantage of the moon.
Winfield Courier, September 23, 1875.
We have Tom Copeland with us now, sticking type, and would have had Charlie McIntire, too, of the Plow and Anvil, if the price could have been agreed upon.

BASE BALL. Attorneys vs. Businessmen.
That game of base ball on last Tuesday afternoon between the two nines, one of which was made up of attorneys exclusively and the other of businessmen, of this city, was decidedly an interesting one. The players, and a large crowd of spectators, assembled upon the ground, south of town, at [? failed to give time ?] o’clock p.m., soon after which the game commenced, with the attorneys in the field and the businessmen at the bat.
The first man called to the bat was Mr. Thos. Copeland, who made a fair hit, making a home run. Next came Geo. Robinson and A. C. Dickinson, both “fouled out.” Fred Hunt then went to bat and by a fair hit made second base, where he was left by Sid Majors being put out by a fly catch, and being the third man out, when the businessmen went into the field and the attorneys to the bat. Mr. L. J. Webb was the first attorney called to the bat and “fouled out.” Mr. Buckman then followed with a fair hit and went to second base. Jno. Pryor went out on three strikes. A. H. Green then went to first base by a good hit, and Mr. Buckman at the same time making a score; Mr. Jennings went out on three strikes, being the third man out, put the side out, leaving Mr. Green on second base. The score was even at the end of the first inning, the businessmen gained five in the second, and the attorneys gained three in the third, leaving the businessmen only two ahead. The businessmen went seven more ahead in the fourth inning and sixteen in the fifth, leaving the score stand as will be seen below. The game was well played considering the fact that most of the players had not played a game of base ball for years and several of them never in their lives. Considerable interest was manifested in the game.
At the beginning of the fifth inning, Mr. Green withdrew from the attorneys, whose place was supplied by Will Holloway, and Geo. Robinson withdrew from the businessmen, whose place was supplied by Mr. Guinn, of Sheridan Township, who made during this inning the strongest hit made during the game and made a home run. O. M. Seward, of the attorneys, did excellent playing behind the bat. The game was called at the close of the fifth inning, at 5 o’clock p.m.; duration of the game 2 hours and 15 minutes.
Score given after article shows that Businessmen had 44 runs; Attorneys had 19 runs.
Players—Businessmen: Copeland, c.; Dickinson, p.; Hunt, F. C., s.s.; Robinson, 1st b.; Majors, 2nd b.; Stuart, 3rd b.; Wallis, B. M., l. f.; Hunt, J. S., c. f.; Starwalt, r. f.

Winfield Socially. The coming winter bids fair to be the most pleasant, socially, that Winfieldians have ever experienced. Many changes have taken place in the circle of young folks since the good old frontier days. New and attractive young ladies and gentlemen have settled amongst us, giving to Winfield an air of city life and gaiety when they meet “in convention assembled.” The recent Thanksgiving ball was followed so closely by Miss Kate Millington’s “dancing party,” and both so largely attended, that the indications are that those “who look for pleasure can hope to find it here” this winter. The last mentioned party, to use a stereotyped expression, was a “brilliant success.” Probably of all the gay and charming gatherings that have “tripped the fantastic,” etc., in our city, this was the most pleasant. The music was excellent, the refreshments good, and the polite and attentive demeanor of the fair hostess most agreeable.
The following persons were fortunate enough to be present at this party: Judge W. P. Campbell, of Wichita; W. W. Walton, of Topeka; Herman Kiper, of Atchison; Fred C. Hunt, W. C. Walker, Bert Crapster, Ed. P. Greer, Charley Harter, J. C. Fuller, Mr. and Mrs. J. Holloway, Mr. and Mrs. A. H. Green, Mr. and Mrs. Virgil Harter, Mr. and Mrs. A. E. Baird, Mr. and Mrs. J. A. Earnest, Mr. and Mrs. James Kelly, Mr. and Mrs. A. J. Thompson, Miss Inez Daniels, S. Suss, Josephine E. Mansfield, G. E. Walker, Mary McGaughy, M. B. Wallis, Fannie Wallis, Wilbur Dever, Maggie J. Dever, W. C. Root, Jennie Hane, W. Gillelen, Mattie Coldwell, J. N. Harter, Carrie Olds, T. C. Copeland, Katie McGaughy, O. M. Seward, Nora Coldwell, Dr. Strong, Amie Bartlett.
Of course, they one and all enjoyed themselves; wished the occasion might be often repeated, and voted (in their minds at least) Miss Kate to be the most “social campaign organizer” in the city.
