OF THE OLDEST AJTD
HOTELS IN THE CITY.
The History in BrieC, Its Connection
with Many Important Events in the
History of Wichita. First Class in
Its Appointments, and Popular
"With the Traveling Public.
The Occidental is one of the oldest hotels
in the city, and, in fact, is the first large
hotel equipped -with all the modern con
veniences that welcomed the stranger to
Probably more local interest attaches to
this hotel than to any other in the city as J
it is associated in the minds of the older
citizens with many important events in
the history of Wichita.
It was built in 1872 and was open for
business in the early part of 1873. At that
time Wichita had not assumed its present
important position amongst the cities of
tho west and it was all out of proportion,
so to speak, to the needs of the time. Its
projectors, when spoken to on the subject,
claimed that if any mistake had been made
it was on the safe side and that they
believed the hotel was entirely too
small. How well tho prophecy
implied in thoe words has been fulfilled,
everyone in Wichita knowi.and thousands
of others who look toward the west as a
home and are only biding their time to
swell the immense throng of immigration
attracted to the garden of America. Proba
bly no enterprise ever started in Wichita
did more toward opening tho eyes of this
state and indirectly of tiie world to the
grand possibilities of Southwestern Kan
sas. The building of this hotel inspired the
citizens of Wichita with a confidence that
converted possibility into probability in
their minds and they went ahead reaping
the choicest of harvest whereas had it not
been for this incident they would probably
have waited and been forced to divide the
IN' THE PARI.OI5.
sheaves with the workmen who came into
the field at the eleventh hour. How rich
that harvest was may be estimated by the
more recent comers who have grown
wealthy with the gleaninys.
The possibilities to which their eyes
were then opened have only been partially
realized not because they were overesti
mated, but because sufficient time has not
elapsed for the perfect development of
the almost, inexhaustible resources of
this section of America. The way was
opened then and since then this city has
been rapidly following it up and building
upon the sure foundation that is known to
exist and recognized by all.
In tho sjiacious corridors of this hotel
many of the earlier enterprises which
have proven to be so essential to the rapid
growth of Wichita were discussed and
figured out with mathematical certainty.
As a consequence the we.Jty prospector
was housed beneath its roof and learned of
those, who collected there to talk of the
current events of the day, something
about the rich country surrounding it
even before they had an opportunity to
OFFICE AXD BILLIARD PABLOR-
look about them and judge for themselves.
For years the registers of this hotel show
an average of upwards of sixty guests
daily and instead of being too large it was
soon found that it was not large enough to
accommodate the immense travel that
was finding its way into western Kansas.
The uniform good management of the
hotel from the first and the favorable im
pression made upon its guests even when
it was crowded beyond its capacity estab
lished an enviable reputation that ivill
stand by it as long as it is known as the
The building is of brick and most sub
stantial in construction, at the same time
is designed with a view to its appearance.
On close inspection one will observe that
its walls are unusually thick, and even the
partition walls are of brick. A glance is
sufficient to satisfy anyone of the quality
of the workmanship and material. It is
safe to say the Occidental will be standing,
a monument to the astuteness of its pro
jectors, when many more modern build
ings shall be crumbling into decay.
Its location is counted by hotel men to
be the best in the city, being central and
within easy distance of all the railroad
depots. It i3 on the southeast corner of
Main and Second streets and as nearly as
possible in the center of business. When
the new court house is completed, and the
new buildings on North Main street, at
present in course of construction, are occu
pied, its location will be still lurther im
proved. The offices open out on Main street and
are large and airy. The annunciator shows
thut at present there are sixty-five rooms at
the disposal of the guests. In the rear of the
office is a large reading room where all the
exchanges are kept on file, the daily papers
and leading periodicals are also at the
service of the guests. Easy chairs and
settees are there in abundance suggesting
every comfort that can be found outside of
the sacred precincts of home. The con
stant coming and going, registering out
and registering in, an extra dinner or two,
the cheery call of the bus man, announc
ing the departure of the numerous trains,
all give the office an air of bustle that is
very gratifying to landlord and so much
in keeping with a busy western hotel that
it is even pleasing to tho guests.
rue uuiiaru parlor ana smoking room
are large and comfortable and are favorite
resorts for the bachelors. Every comfort
and convenience are added and those who
desire recreation can find it there.
Up stairs admits you into a large and
hospitable hall and gives a suggestion of
the elegant and luxurious furnishings of
the parlors. The parlor is a model in both
size and furnishings and yet not too large
to accomodace the needs of the hotel.
On this floor are several suites of large,
beautiful rooms affording every conven
ience and comfort that heart could wish
for The furnishings throughout the en
tire establishment are in keeping with the
suggestions of taste and refinement one
gets upon entering the hall. It is needless
to stato that each suite of rooms and every
nan is proviueu witn every mouern con
venience. A bioad gallery, tho width of tho side
walk, runs the entire front of the building,
commanding an excellent view of Maiu
street north and south. The parlors open
on to this spacious promenade, which is
shaded from the sun by large maples nnd
cottonwoods. They are so arranged that
three separate parlors may be thrown into
one of the largest audience chamber in the
city at the time the hotel was built. Large
conventions involving the most importune
interests in the state have been discussed
and settled there, and many scenes av-o-ciate
it with the progress of the city. Be
neath its brilliant chandeliers the happy
bride has stood amid the floral decora-
srs:M J 'S-. ''k W
tions and stepped forth on her husband's
arm on a path literally strewn with roses.
Its drawn shades and crape-hung walls
have again witnessed the last sad rites
over the mortal remains of some loved de
parted. There is a home feeling about the
very corridors that impresses even the
casual guest and will ensure a custom for
the hotel long after the present generation
shall have passed away.
In addition to the office, reading room,
etc., already mentioned, on the lower floor
are the laundry, baths and one of the most
important features in the management of
the hotel, viz: the dining room. A dinper
at the Occidental places at rest forever the
question of the kitchen. Its old-time rep
utation for good cheer has never suffered
and its bill of fare indicates anything that
can be desired from the most frugal and
abstemious repast to a Delmonico ban
quet. The table is sufficient evidence that
the kitchen appointments must be all per
fect and thorough.
The dining room is a large lofty hall
neatly decorated in perfect taste and keep
ing with the general excellence of the
hoteL The furniture is suggestive of
massive and certainly is a realization of
comfort. Handsome side boards are piled
high with fruits, salads, confections and
pastries. The windows have interior
shutters and are draped with lace curtains.
The ventilation is perfect and the light is
allowed to stream into the apartment in
subdued rays that charm the senses. The
epicure may indulge his most fastidious
tastes to his hearts content without a fear
of that dread visitor d3Tspepsia. This
dining room has been the scene of many
large banquets and the many toasts that
have elicited immortal responses would fill
volumes. The Occidental is the historical
headquarters of this city and is seen by all
for it is about the first place visited by
WILL RESUME WORK.
The Y. 31. C. A. Building Fund Increased by
Several Thousand Dollars.
The arrangements were completed yes
terday morning for a $20,000 loan on the Y.
M- C. A. building, and before the banks
closed for the day the slight indebtedness
on the building had been paid and every
thing ready to proceed with the work of
completing the finest building owned by
the association in the state. The loan was
made on terms most desirable for the asso
ciation, at a nominal rate of interest and
Work will be commenced on the build
ing within a few days. A superintendent
will have it in charge and the building
completed just as rapidly as possible, com
mencing at the basement. It is not yet
known whether an amount can be raised
in time to keep the work going until the
building is completed, but the money se
cured by the loan and the donations that
can be collected when desired
will be quite sufficient to complete the
basement, first and second floors.
The leading feature of the basement will
be the gymnasium which, when open, will
be an attraction that will prove interest
ing for the members and resule in benefit
to the association. The first floor will
soon have the reading room, office for sec
retary and some rooms for special meet
ings and work. Tho second floor will be
cut up into rooms for rent.
The building committee has been earn
estly at work for some time to get the
funds for going ahead. The members are
greatly encouraged and very soon all the
preliminaries will be arranged for the
work to commence. They hope to be able
to keep the bank account ahead and push
the work until the builing is completed
and will use every possible effort to that
A HlbTOItlCAL, SOCIETY.
Several recent visits to the State Histori
cal society at Topeka have confirmed me
in the belief that Wichita should have a
Historicol society. The old Chisholm cat
tle trail, the place of the council fires at
the meeting of the rivers, the sites of
early buildings erected both for good or ill,
are surely teeming with historical memo
ries and traditions. But who shall pre
serve these memories? The generation of
men (the founders of this city), who once
knew these so intimately, will soon pass to
the beyond. The men who knew Jesse
Chisholm, who listened with mingled emo
tions to the first church bell of the Arkan
sas valley, or who hunted buffalo from this
starting point, are yearly growing fewer.
All these need but encouragement to pour
forth reminiscences of great future histori
cal interest. Why not utilize at once their
memory, as well as the relics now prob
ably in their possession, but which last
may pass in a few years to friends or rela
tives of distant states?
Then, too, in the rapid progress of our
city, old landmarks are rapidly giving
place to new and commodious business
structures or dwellings, tasty and elegant.
The Princess will soon have no relics of
her past. In the near future she will bo a
city of two decades, housed in structures
creditable to a city of a century's
growth. Where, even now, are the
buildings of ten years ago, and
who can properly describe them'
Who could reconstruct Douglas or Main?
Photographs of these old time buildings,
and progressive pictures of the above
named and other streets would be not
merely of passing note, but of constantly
growing interest as the years 11 y.
Why not engage our club of amateur
and other photographers in what will be
to them a pleasant labor, and to us and
those who come after us a source of con
Will you not, Mr. Editor, employ your
powerful pen in advocac' of the above or
similar society? The years have found
you busy in recording such items as came
to your own notice, and files of the Eagle
will soon be the only source of information
concerning our past. But might not
sources of information be disclosed, and
mines of tragic or pathetic song, story or
tradition be disclosed if their possessors
but knew they were yielking their stores
to some great public enterprise to which
the EAGLE gave countenance and support
Believing the object named to be patri
otic and of pressing interest if ever accom
plished, and feasible now, ami hoping that
some steps may le taken towards its ful
fillment, I remain very truly,
J. C. South.

Literary Colleges of Garfield Unircrslty IleU
Their Commencement Exercises Yesterday.
Once more and for the third time in the
history of this institution, the closing ex
ercises are finished, and the halls that
echoed with the proud step of the senior
and the slow tread of the professor are
silent. The press, the Freshman, the
Sophmore, the Junior and the Senior, all
have had their say and all have left Gar
field's clasic dome to seek rest and recrea
tion at home or abroad. Good by love, has
been said. The boys have said good by to
their fair friends. The professors have
wished all a happy vacation nnd a hope
that all may return at the beginning of
The graduating exercises yesterday
morning were well attended. The large
chapel was well filled and all seemed to
think they were well repaid for the trouble.
There were ten graduates in the normal
department, two in the college of literature
and science, and seven in the college of
law, making a total of nineteen who re
ceived certificates or diplomas. The pro
gram was divided into two parts, first were
the speeches of the normal gradutes, and
second, those of the college of literature.
After invocation by Prof. A. J. Thomp
son and a pianoforte overture. The first
speaker, Mr. John Bender, of Des Moines,
Iowa, entertained the audience with a vivid
sketch of the grandeur and beauty to be
found on the banks of the Colorado. The
scenery of our rivers, mountains and
waterfalls is unsurpassed. The grand Ni
agara Falls, in all its beauty and scenery;
the Hudson river with its rough banks and
rising promontories; the shady Columbia,
forming the celebrated canyon of the Cas
cade mountains; but the Yellowstone val
ley, walled in by almost impassable moun
tain ranges, with its various canyons sur
passes them all.
C. M. Gray then gave a short desertation
on life, nis intention was not to unravel
any of the mysteries of life, but to look at
some of the common things of life which
have appeared to all of us at some time or
other. Life is made up of se eral stages;
childhood, youth, manhood and old age,
and as we pass from one to other a sense of
sorrow is felt at leaving one' and entering
the next. Childhood is looked upon as the
most beautiful stage, youth is admired for
its promise, manhood for what it is doing
and old age for what it has done.
Miss Fannie Gray took the somewhat
unique subject, "The workman dies but
the work goes on." Every living thing
has its sphere and man has his. It is tho
duty of these professors to instruct us, and
long after they have ceased to be their
work will go on. It is said that,
the greater part of man escapes death, his
genius and influence will live long after
Look at Professor Morse, Michael Angelo,
Martin Luther and the work that has gone
out after they have died. When the
silver cord of life is broken, when the
wheel stands still may we find that we
have done something that will live after us.
J. H. Jones took "A Leap in the Dark"
as his theme. His oration was upon the
struggle in Kansas over the liquor traffic.
He discussed the subject pro and con ami
gave it as his opinion that at last prohibi
tion would succeed, fie received great
applause at tho close of his speech.
Gladstone by George M. Laughlin, was
the next to awaken the audience from
their thoughts on temperance. It is said
there is nothing great in the world but
man, nnd nothing in man but mind. The
world is controlled by men of intelligence.
The destiny of nations is shaped more by
brains than by muscle. Among these are
William E. Gladstone .the great English
premier. Gladstone has done more to help
tho cause of Irelaud than most any other
statesman. He did moro to liberalize
monarchy than all other reformers have
done. His influence has been felt through
out the British empire and throughout the
Miss Alma Miller gave a sliort
history of the "Cruades" their
mission, what they accomplished and the
good that has-been obtained from them.
In spite of the many evils arising from
them yet the stimulated commerce, civ
ilization was given the uncivilized and re
The last speaker, Wm. F. K. Reasoner,
pointed out the advantages of knowledge.
Learning is the glory of tho human race
and has raised tho barbarian to his present
exalted state. Ignorance, the most pow
erful enemy with which man has to con
tend, is the source of her faults, errors and
vices. A good statesman or a good warrior
may defend his country, a good artist
gratify tho tastes of his fellow creatures
but ho who excels in learning improves the
mind. The chief benefits derived from
knowledge are the enjoyment we receive
from an extended course of study. The
good we may do others and the relief it
gives us form all physical pleasure.
After a most beautiful song by Miss
Lucy, "Elizabeth's Prayer." Miss Clara
Binch, of La Crosse. Kan., delivered an
oration worthy of praise. Miss Binch has
a pleasing delivery 'ind a good, clear voice
so that every word could be
heard clearly and distinctly. Her subject,
"Forgetting the Tilings That are Past,"
The main thought was that in order to
make a success of life we must pres on
and not look back.
Upon all sides in our great cities we see
the ceaseless activity of the multitudes.
Some are busily engaged in the mercantile
occupations, some exerting their bodies m
manual toil, still other are they who are
striving to gain celebrity by attaining
high positions in public affairs. Why such
diverse expressions of human energy? Is
this varied activity of body, mind and
spirit the result of different motives, or are
all men prompted to act by the desire to
enjoy the same final condition.? Yon
answer in the affirmative, what is that
final condition for which tjhe world is striv
ing? Some call it "snocess." all caJl it
"happiness" for soccwwi is the means of
.happiness. Some people's highest happi
ness may be physical, others may be com
mercial, still others may be intellectual,
above all the true conception of happinea
is spiritual. The happiest, most sttccea
f nl people are not those who think con
stantly of the past, but those who antici
pate something in the fntore. We cannot
expect to lean on past achievement be
cause they are for the sueeefcs and growth
of their time. How much more useless to
attempt to gain any strength by the con
templation of lo--t opportunities.
Each individual is capable of judging
the success of his own life not by external
evidences only, but by ka inward con
sckmsoese of growth and sdrancesnent,
so in the life of each individual every faj's
action muss contemplate the preparation
for the futnre, each action ibb.4 b btult
upoe the action of Uh pat. Let us then
"lay aside every weight of paat cares and
Mistakes and look onto Christ a the
brightest and only perfect ideal that will
