WICHITA, KANSAS, SUNDAY MORNING, MAY 2
VOL. IV. NO. 140.
1886- WHOLE NO. 607 1
A Great ' Week for
More than One Million of Dollars
One Week Added to Material In
terests of the Metropolis of
The week just closed has been the greatest
in the history of the city, greatest in ma
terial advancement, in the increase of her
population. In accruod wealth and probably
in all other directions. The history of the
week a recorded in the columns of the
Eagle makes an astonishing chapter. One
million dollars would not cover the results
to this city of the past six days if the total
of such result could be measured by dollars
and cents. The aggregate of the real estate
transactions alone amount to nearly one-,
half of a million of dollars, a largo per cent,
of which money came from other states, and
which is so much added capital now in the
hands of men who have the requisite faith
and knowledge to employ it to the best ad
vantage for the advancement of the city.
Five of the largest cities in the state com
bined cannot make such a showing for the
time specified. But this is but a single fea
ture of the accomplishments of the week.
Within the woek an Episcopal See of the
Catholic church has been fixed for this city,
which involves more in the way of money
and important institutions and influences
that can be enumerated in this article.
Within the week also the decision was ar
rived at and tho arrangements concluded
for the establishing of a wagon factory
hare on a capital-stock basis of
two hundred thousand dollar. The men
which this industry will employ, the addi
tional iamilies which it will bring Into our
midst and the money it will weekly put in
circulation, all combined, is a bigger thing
than nas been secured by any city in the
state for a long while. It was within the
past week that Judge Peters telegraphed the
editor of this paper that tbo committee had
agreed to an additional fifty thousand for
our public building which will make one
hundred thousand dollars to bo expended
the present year, and largely among our
people. And too, sinco tho issue of this
paper last Sunday morning, in addition to a
dozen of enterprises of more or less import
ance, the residents and capitalists of a
distant city have purchased the site for an
opera house which it is estimated will cost
$80,000. It was but day before yesterday
that the Santa Fe gave out that they had
appropriated the necessary money to put up
a permanent depot in Wichita at a cost of
about $50,000. And in addition to the fact
of the Tal mage & Todd wholesale queens
ware and pottery establishment having de
cided to locate here, within the pact week,
came also the announcement that Captain
Carey had determined upon the erection cf
a $100,000 hotel; and, within the week, tho
Garfield University enterprise also has been
mado almost absolutely sure.
Thoso aro but the great and prominent
enterprises and undertakings encompassed
and made sura within tbo flying hours of the
of tho brief days of the week just closed, by
our wonderful city, and great and important
as they are they aro only an earnest of what
may be expected of what are sure to follow.
Great is the metropolis of the central state,
but greater will bo her future.
We will say, that while the Eaole said it
had no interest in the controversy, wo beg
leave to remark that wo think it is taking a
big hand in tho matter, not to be interested.
There is a large nigger in the wood pile
somewhere, and no doubt we gave tho nig
ger quite a close poke yesterday. Harper
has just as good a right to work for all the
railroads on earth as Wichita has. Neither
of those roads can afford to miss Harper in
coming south. Sentinel.
May bo the woodpilo is extant with tho
"nigger" in it, but wo must plead innocence.
Harper has, of course, not only the right but
the privilege to work for all the roads in
sight, and it is her plain duty if the can do
so without jeopardizing her chances on a
sure thing. The Facile is for tho C. Wood
Davis road because it promises to be a sure
tbing, and for that reason only said what it
did touching Harper's interest in the matter.
DIDN'T WANT TO SELL,.
Charles Marsh got in from tbo west j cs
terday. Ho sold his property cast of the
Santa Fo depot a month ago for eleven
thousand dollars and now he finds the prop
erty worth twenty. What he wants now,
is for some level headed man to givo him a
pointer as to where to invest a few thousand
more in Wichita. Charley says he didn't
want to sell when ho did, and had placed so
high a prico on the property that he thought
no one would take it. Hut they did. He
still owns a couple of farms in this county
and he would like to see tho man who could
coax him into parting with thorn for any
mere money consideration. Wo sympa
thize with Charley but see no help for a
man who will go to work and dclibciatcly
put any price on Wichita property.
THE SUN FLOWER ROUTE.
Mr. W. D. Murdock, the agent of the Ft.
Scott and Wichita road announces that
they have placed on that road for daily s erv
ico tho Horton reclining chair cars which will
be run through to St. Louis without change
and free, tho first free reclining chair cars
ever run out of or through tho state. This
puts our city on a footing with Kansas City
as to luxury in traveling. Of course the
through sleepers will be continued. The
management hero is proving itself equal to
tho demands of the largctfKtid lastest grow
ing city in the state and the Missouri Pacific
will soon find it necessary, no doubt, to
place a night through St, Louis train on the
road from Wichita. In other words Wichi
ta is a city, and tho Missouri Pacific so rec
ognizes that fact by placing on her road this
THE RAILROAD PETITIONS.

WICHITA CLEARING HOUSE.
The clearings of the Wichita clearing
house as reported for the Eaolx by Manager
Kramer for tho week ending May 1st, 1SS6,
are fS4G.588.S0, against $311,344.32 last
week. Cash balance, 56,435.10. The in

very gratifying but the percent of increase

Life lies before her desert like; and dim
When scanned by weary eyes, the horizon
Where skies bend down to kiss the and
Of soulloss sand, Why should she vainly
For ereener oaths? For manr drearv davs
The patient feet have trod the appointed
Of Providence. She now as ever by
Stern duty led stays not to question why.
Lol Xifting heavy lids her eyes discern
The oasis of her desert life, and turn
In glad surprise upon the changing scene,
Where barren wastes aro turned to living
Her eyes have lost their weariness and grow
Divinely bright; and o'er her cheeks the
Of ecstasy. Love's sun shines o'er her way;
His radiant beams transform the common

Eureka Republican: The Wichita Daily
Eagle now comes regularly to us as an ex
change. This paper is one of the very best
published in this part of the United States,
and is one column larger than any other
daily in Kansas. It is full of local, special
correspondence and editorial -matter, and
presents each morning, the full Associated
Press dispatches. It is a valuable paper for
anyone who wishes to keep posted in the
affairs of tho nation, and should be moro
generally circulated here.

Chicago, III., May 1. Fully five hundred
striking railroad freight handlers met at
Harrison street, near tho west sNo passenger
depot, at 8 o'clock this morning. Speeches
were made by a few leaders in which they
declared that it was tho duty of the freight
handlers on all the Chicago roads to cnturce
tlio demand now for shorter hours while the
workingmen in all the departments of trade
are doing so. a his sentiment was cheered
and upon the suggestion of soinn one in the
crowd the men started for tho Wabash
freight yards to urgo tho men employed
there to stop work. Tho crowd increasing
in size us it moved and entered tho Wabash
yards and all the men at once quit work.
The drivers and conductors of tho Itluo
Island avenue line, of the West Division car
company hnvo demanded a reduction in
their trips from seven to six, and confining
n working day to eleven hours, without de
crease in pay. Tho company acceded to the
demand without parleying. Two hundred
men employed by the West Division street
car company in the extension of their lines,
have struck'for eight hours. The company
alloned tho men to go.
They joined tho procession which then
proceeded to the Rock Island jards where
they induced all tho men employed in the
freight houses to abandon their positions.
TLe new recuits joined tho crowd which
next visited tho Louisville, Xew Albany &
Chicago road, where they were also suc
cessful in their efforts with the freight
handlers. Tho procession which now num
bers two thousand is circulating around the
different railways. Thero is much enthu
siasm and cheering in tho ranks, but so far
thero is no disorder.
At South Chicago, where thoro arc a lew
largo lumber yard and planing mills lo
cated, tho 3 ard men and men employed in
tho planing mill of one of tho largest con
cerns stopped work and will doubtless
induce tho men in the other yards to stop.
Tho men employed in Kirk's soap factory,
numbering soma seven hundred, have just
struck, and n procession headed, by a band
of music is visiting tho other factories situ
ated on tho Xorth side, which they will also
endeavor to shut down.
At 9:S0 this morning tbo crowd of men
from the lumber yards and planing mills,
numbering three or four thousand, got to
gether in tho vicinity of Twenty-second
street and Iilue Island avenue. A leader
was selected and a line formed. In tho front
rank a man carried a red flag. Tho body
of men then moved down in tho di
rection of the McCormick reaper works. The
entire detective forco of the Chicago police
department reported for duty early and all
tho chiefs of police districts were on hand
for consultation with Superintendent Kber
soll. Tho rcscrvo of police i3 still held at
their respective stations for duty in the event
This morning i.i tho lumber district not a
planing mill opened up and the manufac
turers went into a session at Felix Hang's
office to consider tho situation.
Seventy-five to one hundred employes of
the Equitablo gas and luel company, en
gaged in building tanks on Archer avenue
near Halstcad street, quit work this morn
ing. Tho men were recently granted a raise
from $l.G0 to $1.75 for ten hours a da-,
which was all they asked; but this morning
they quit because the company refused to
allow tho increaso and eight hours work.
Tho column of railroad strikers and fol
lowers reached the Lako Shoro road about
11a. m. and tho main body of men stopped
Promptly at 10:20 the freight handlers ot
the Chicago, Milwaukee and SL Paul road
stopped work. Tho strikers marched to
Clark and Taylor streets. Here they formed
a lino four abreaL Great crowds turned
out to seo the sight, cheering tho men as
they were marching through tho strecU
touard tho Michigan Central freight hoti-e.
As they pursued their way the street became
filled with sight-seen, but nctbing approach
ing disorder was apparent. It took but a
few minutes to induce the Michigan Central
men to quit work.
About ten men employed in the Michigan
Central yards refused to'join tho stnku, and
police protection has been sought by tb
officials of tbo road for them. Lieutenant
Laughlin and a squad of police soon ap
peired and succeeded in clearing the depot
without using any violence.
Several mass meetings occurred in the
lumber districts in tho southwestern
portion of tho city during the forenoon.
The crowd was composed very largely ol
llohemians and Germans, who were ad
dressed by hot-headed leaders. Finally the
crowd resolved itself into a marching col
umn, preceded by a band of music, and car
rying red flags." They proceeded to the
McCormick reaper works, where some non
union men were working in the yards and
were frightened away. The procession went
west to ISoby street, where a miss meeting
was held in a vacant lot. The growd grew
larger a it moved along and grew more
boistcrou', and the police kept advised of
its movements, but up to noon no trouble
The column in the lumber vards marched
to the ballon the corner of Central avenue
and Eighteenth street, where all that could
get ia listened to several speakers who ad
dressed the meeting in itohemian, Polish,
German and English languages, and one
speaker advocated the burning cf every
yard if the proprietor of which refused to
concedo to the demands of the men.
The Fort Wayne men all stopped work
shortly before noon ia obedience to the de
mand ot the marchicg crowd of strikers.
The Northwestern railway men are still at
work and it is understood will continue at
work until Tuedy, when the company will
return an answer.
The lumber owners express anxiety as to
the safety of their property and are looking
about to advise means for the better protec
tion of their yards.
The socialists are issuing circulars for a
series of public meeting fmorrow.
Milwaukee. May 1. About 500 coal
heavers will quit work this afternoon unless
their employers grant their request for In
creased wages, and th.ro is no likelihood
that they will. The teamsters union will
strike in connection with the heaven, as
they have akpi for a 15 per cent advance,
which has not been granted.
Thus far todav no new features ia the la-
bor movement has developed. AH is quiet
in manufacturing circlet and no trouble is
anticipated. The employe of all the brew-
cries in the city, about three thousand, de-

the men may go out to-day. Daring the
past fortnight the local assembly of the
Knights of Labor has been in almost con
stant session in their rooms at Kensington.
Se far as can be learned the Pullman
company has not asked for an increase in
payor for shorter hours, but mas3 meetings
have been held and the subject agitated.
The men in the Pullman territory seem to be
awaiting some action to be taken by their
Chicago fellow workmen, and the probabil
ity is that notning will bo done before Mon
ifesti'faction exists among the workmen
in the Union foundry and the Pullman car
wheel works. The moulders about a week
ago asked for an increase of 10 per cent in
wages, which was conceded. Now the
blacksmiths and pattern makers want the
same increase, as well as double pay for over
time and Sunday vjork. In the latter de
mand the moulders also join, although they
are satisfied with the pay. The company
will send an answer May 10th. It is not
likely that any trouble will manifest itsclf.
Ata meeting last night the committee
that was appointed to wait upon the packers
made their report.
Tho International packing company had
consented to adopt tho eight-hour plan
Monday next. The report from Fowler
Brothers was favorable, but not definite nor
final. Hartley liros. had agreed to abide by
tbo action of the other packers. The com
mittee that waited on Armour Bros, was in
favor of the system, but did not want to be
the first to adopt the plan. Kelson Morris
will givo a reply Monday. The Xew York
packing house will abide by the action of
other packers, and the Silver Horn company
promised to adopt tho eight-hour system to
day. The committee appointed to wait on
the others did not render a decision.
After listening to the reports of delegates
who represented 20,000 men employed in
the yards, decided to meet again Monday
night to listen to the reports of the delin
quent committees and fuller reports from
those committees that had got no definite
word from their employers.
The executive committee of tho Knights
of Labor assembly publishes a card this

New YoRK.May 1. Among a largo num
ber or manufacturers and business men,
thero has latclv been an unsettled feeling
in what action the laborordcrs would take
on the short-hour question after May 1st.
It was supposed by ininy that all tho trades
throughout New York city would mako a
united demand for eight hour;, that busi
ness would bo disturbed, that great strikes
would bo ordered, that a period of deprei
sion and hard times would follow. This is
all wrong, says tho friends of the movement
for short hours, and business men can rest
assured that there will be no radical changes
or vast upheavals in the labor market.
Cincinnati, May 1. Five hundred em
ployes of tho furniture manufacturers and
one hundred employes of tho Brun3wick
Balke company, billiard table manufacturers,
are out in consequents of tho request to
grant ten hours' pay for eight hours' work.
In the other branchos of industry, while
there is a general feeling in favor of eight
hours a day, nothing has been dono toward
enforcing tbo sstem.

All tho plumbers in the city, 200 in num

the demand jesterday of the bosses that they
adopt tho eight-hour system without de

employers considered this too short notice
ana asked for further time to consider tho

work until they should reach a decision.

mado a red-hot speech, declaring ho wae

was adopted, and that be wa only ono of
tho 350 Milwaukee freight handlers who
would do tlio same. Wild applause int r
rupted O'Connor's speech. He was fol

earnestness was shown, especially wheu
Chairman O'Connor read a dispatch frum
Now York, announciug that Vice-Pre-Ident

gested that it would bo foolish for the roads
to attempt to fight at this juncture and con
ciliation was tbo needful policy.
Tho scene which followed the reading of
this dispatch was lndiscribablo. Men flung
their hats toward tbe ceiling, not caring
where they fell, and yelling "and stamping
their feet until utterly exhausted. Another
wild time ensued when Chairman O'Connor
nnnounced that twenty-fivo men brought
here from Milwaukee by the Milwaukee and
St. Paul road to take the places of the
strikers bad refused to go to work upon
hearing of the situation from the strikeis
After much talking a committee: consisting
of nine delegates lrom each road was ap
pointed to prepare articles of organization
lor a freight handlers union and report at a
meeting tomorrow afternoon. During the
meeting thero were a few calls for men to go
to the llaltimoro and Ohio freight house
and throw the handlers thfro at work into
the street, but tbe idea did not take and dur
ing tbe balance of the proceedings there was
a noticeable absence of anything else ap
proaching or threatening violence.
Chicago, My.I. The proprietor of all
the great packing house's and kindred es
tablishment held a secret meeting this after
noon when, after several hours session, tn-y
separated. Their faces expre-sd anything
but a happv aspect. The question as
to what action should be taken in regard to
tbo eight hour movement. Conflicting re
ports of the result were in circulation and
up to a late hour no authoritative report
bad been obtained. Theg-nerl impression
however, was that the packers had been un
able to agree upon a concerted plan to resist
the dematds ot the employer, and that up
on Mondny morning the-eight hour per day
system would be conceded, hut ir poible
to be accomplished, by a corresponding re
duction in wages.
It is currently reported tonight that ths
Wabasb officials and also those of il.

in summarving the labor situation in Chi
cago will say that tho events of to-day added
from COOO to 8,000 men to the idle work

filling tho saloons of Chicago, and it can be
truthfully said that 3,500 men who two days
ago were earning wages and adding to tho
wealth of tbe community are now unem
ployed and tho probability is that in about
10 per cct.t of tho cases this

So far only freight handlers havo gone out,

to supply them will probably result in

that Chicago has neither a mayor in Illinois
