A EAPIDLY HTGSEASING BUSINESS
Plant Being Enlarged to Employ Fifty
Men and Calling for "Weekly Pay
KollofOver One Thonsand
One of the important business establish
ments of the city is the barrel factory of
J. M. Moore & Co., located at present near
the corner of Twenty-first street and
Fourth avenue. Mr. Moore is a young
man who ha given his attention to that
business and has worked in factories of
the kind in every city of importance from
the Atlantic to the Pacific. His infonna-
J. M. MOORE & CO'S
tion and experience in the business is quite
varied and he is fully prepared to look
after the business from the purchase of
material to the selling of barrels. George
"V. Mastin, Esq., of Howe & Mastin, is
associated with Mr. Moore in the business,
and while they have experienced many
difficulties incident to starting a business
the result has bv no means caused them to
regret that they invested their money in
The leading demand for the factory came
from the packing houses. Mr. Mcore was
foreman for Bold in the cooper shop, mak
ing the kind of barrels needed by the plant.
He had been with Hold and Armour a
number of years and being acquainted
with the demand from packing honses
about one year ago commenced to con
sider the question of putting in a factory.
The packing houses were anxious that
some one go into the business which
would relieve tlicm of a feature of the
-work they had no desire to engage in.
Assurances were given by the vinegar fac
t ories also that thej' would have some or
ders to place.
In the consideration of the question of
going into the business the usual induce
ments were presented An the freight rates.
The rate on incoming material being much
lower than for the barrels .shipped in from
western factories. This was decidedly in
favor of the enterprise and although cost
of labor somewhat higher here than at
snAVIXG L P.
eastern point'? it was thought that the in
ilucements were sufficient to warrant the
investment by way of experiment.
It was about eight months ago that the
factory was opened and business com
menced. At first only four or five men
were employed and the experiment was
made cautiously. There was no end
of trouble in securing mater
ial. The cars of staves from
Arkansas would often get side-tracked
and remain scattered along the main line
or some place else for many long days,
causing vexatious delays and an extra
amount of w ear on the nervous system,
fo it took some time for the cars from the
jungles of Arkansas to find the way to the
factory. The delay from this source, at
present, is not so great as it was. In near
ly every department there were many diffi
culties to overcome and avoid, and
the few months the factory has been
open, rapid progress has been made in
getting things to work smoothly and in
getting down to close busiutss calcula
tions. The business rapidly increased and at
present they are giving employment to
. twenty men. Some time ago it was de
cided that the present quarters were not
large enough to accommodate the increase
in business. A site for the plant was se
cured near the corner of Twenty-first
street and Mosley avenue which would af
ford the room desired and at the same time
give better railroad facilities.
The contract for erecting the now bald
ing to be occupied by the plant was

awarded some days ago. and at present the
building is rapidly nenring completion.
It is thirty feet wide and and one hun
dred and fifty feet long, and the company
has f oifr or five times as much ground as is
covered by t he main building. It was nec
essary to provide this as it takes considera
ble room to handle that business. This
v, ill give space for a large factory and the
building am be increased in response to
the demand. The factory will be changed
to the now building in a few days. This
will enable the company to employ niore
men, and the demand at pret-ent will call
for fifty anen. The force will be increased

to this number just as soon as work is
eommenced at the new location.
Within the last four weeks the output
hasbeeen between five hundred and six
hundred barrels per week. The pay-roll
for last week was over $300 and -was about
average for the last ten weeks. The new
location will provide room for making
twelve or fifteen hundred barrels per week
and increase the pay roll to over $1,000 per
-week. This -noil give some idea of the
business and its benefit to the city and its
importance in the manufacturing in
dustries of the city. The increase of the
packing house business reaches out to the
barrel factory, calling for more work
there, and the demand from this source
alone is quite sufficient to make a rushing
business. Some orders have been filled for
the vinegar factories in the city and the
development of the sugar industry is also
creating a demand in that line. The
company in figuring with some of the
sugar factories in the southwest and the
chances for the Wichita factory to get the
orders are most encouraging. The out
going freight rate and the short distance
to reach them makes Wichita the natural
supply point in this line as well as in all
The only wood used in the factory is
white oak which is secured mostly from
Arkansas. The staves are shipped in the
rough state while the headings are trimm
ed and little additional work is required.
The staves are dressed by hand which
calls for considerable labor and a large pay
roll. The force of men in the "setting up"
department furnish the music for the
factory. There is a good deal of sameness
about it and not very much genuine music
for any one not interested in it financially.
The proprietors, however, are not heaid to
complain owing to their relations with the
The prospects of the Southern Kansas
Fair .are, it is pleasing to state, growing
brighter daily. During the past week
Mr. J. E. Johnson has called upon many
of the merchants to solicit advertisements
in the premium list, and he reports greater
success than was originally hoped for. In
fact, the readiness of the merchants to
take advantage of the distribution of 10,
000 copies of the book has been such that
the secretary says he will be compelled to
make the book much larger than was in
tended. The example set by Mr. IJolliday in
setting aside a "special" premium will be

William Deering & Co., of Chicago, who
are represented in southern Kansas by E.
P. Shields as general agent, S. G. Bab
cock, district manager, aud J. T, Kelly,
local manager, will do the handsome
thing in the way of "special" premium,
and by another week will have determined
upon the class of competition for which it
will be offered. "

the Deering company will be announced
later, after the company have determined
upon the class of competition. The enter
prise of the representatives of these two
large concerns can but meet the hearty
support of the entire people, and speaks
volumes for the fair prospects. The secre
tary says that a number of the most
prominent merchants of the city calculate
upon erecting temporary buildings of
their own. The desire to make larger and"
more magnificent displays contemplates
more space than is generally allotted by
fair associations, and several have applied
for and received ground space upon which
to erect their own buildings. During the
past week W. A. Arey & Co.. Thos. Shaw,
and others have been granted this priv
ilege and still there is some desirable
space left, should others wish to make
The floral department promises to be one
of the finest ever exhibited in the south
west. The premium list for this depart
ment having been carefully prepared by
Rev. David Winters and a committee of
the Florists' associations, is a model of its
kind, and it is expected to see not only
quantity but quality exhibited. The
Swine Breeders' associations were visited
by representatives of the fair association
and promise to be here in force. It short,
there is not a department that will not bo
filled with entries of a superior order, and
in this connection the association purpose
to secure so far as practical the services of
expert class judges. This, it is thought,
will givo better satisfaction, and remove
the possibility of having a horseman
judging sheep or a cattleman judging
hogs or poultry, and at the same time give
justice to all alike. Letters of enqniry
are being daily received by the secretary
from all parts, of the country, and the dis
position seems to be to visit the fair.
The home people must not allow them
selves to be outdone. Naturally they
are for Sedgwick county first, but
southern Kansas must not be beaten, and
it is safe to predict now that she will not
be. Every good citizen should feel an in
terest in the work of the association, and
see to it that everything is done that can
be done to insure success. The secretary
is always ready to receive suggestions
and invites all who may at any time feel
that they can make a suggestion for the
good of the Fair, to niake it known to him.
The officers and executive committee are
working hard, and now that the railways
have made the one fare rate for the Fair,
greater crowds of people will be here dur
ing Fair week than has ever been congre
gated in any Kansas city.

Last Friday evening Mr. George A. Chat
field, of College Hill, 'was charged, tried
and convicted ofbeing one of the most
amiable and estimable young entertainers
of the city. He threw open his doors and
extended a welcome hand to the members
of the S. & G. club, which has been play
ing no small part in the social circles of
Wichita for the last year or two. An ex
ceedingly pleasant time and an excellent
repast was the verdict of an entire jury,
and happiness reigned supreme until it
was discovered that neither Wm. Harris
nor Anson E.utan liked cake and strawber

IRVING rOURTII GRADE PICNIC.
Satuulay afternoon proved a splendid
oi.e lor the picnic given to the pupilsof the
iuurth grade of Irving school. The slight
ram of the night before was just enough
make things pleasant and any one seeing
the happy faces and hearing the merry
voices would have known that every one
was having a good time. All kinds of
games had been provided and a most invit
ing lunch of course. The following pu
pils, with their teacher, Miss Pear&e, were
the participants: Misses Mamie Cooper,

mother, Mrs. J. Edwards Caldwell and
The rooms were most tastefully decorat

certain blacksmith of Queenstown, who
is locally known as Dr. O'Took, was
visited by a Mr. Ford, of Chicago.
It appears that when Ford landed on
Irish soil a satchel which he carried
attracted tho attention of the police.
They suspected that it contained dyna
mite or firearms. O'Toole and Ford
started to visit the rock of Cashel, and a
detective was sent along in the railway
carriage to watch the satchel. When
tho party arrived at the railway station
nearest tho rcyjk of Cashel they got into
a "jingle" to continue the journey. Tho
"bobby" got in, too. They had ridden
for several miles, the officer's eyes being
fastened upon tho satchel all the time,
and G'Toolo and Ford enlivening the
way with songs and laughter, when the
patience of tho detective becamo ex
hausted and he said:
"Yez'll not go another fufc o' tho way

Atlanta, Ga., May 8. Joel Chandler
Harris Uncle Remus is a very modest
man. Of middlo height, with a form
well padded with adipose tissue; with a
scholarly stoop, of the complexion called
"sandy," with a stubbly red mustache;
with dreamy gray blue eyes, a good
brow, a mouth which combines sweet
ness and courage, and an awlrward gait
such is, as near :is description may
paint him, Joel Chandler Harris, whose
name has become to the s-outh "familiar
in the mouth as hotxsehold words."
His face, rather heavy in repofcc, needs
but the flint flash of conversation to light
up and transfigure it. The eyes wliich
were dull with abstraction sparkle with
a wonderful fire; the sensitive month be
trays tho thought before the lips have
formed it; the brows rise and fall, ex
pand or frown with each emotion.
When I first saw Joel Chandler Harris
I was not impressed with his personality.
But the feeling of disappointment van
ished when I h' ard him talk. I forgot
the rather homely face, I no longer re
marked the ratb-r awkward stoop which
long labor over manuscript has given
Mr. Harris is an indefatigable worker,
as all men of real genims are, ood in now
engaged in the preparation of hia forth
coming novel, "Aaron," which promises
to bo the culmination of his rare descrip
tive and pathetic powers. Daily he may
be found at bis desk in Tho Constitution
editorial rooms, and the evenings ho do
votes to his novel Wat Joinsos.
