Their business hero was of course in con
nection with the new depot mapped out by
the Eagle yesterday morning, and every
thing is fixed but the opening ot Mead ave
nue to Williams street. A representative of
the Eaole tackled "Vice-President Smith
for fuller particulars than he already had,
but that gentleman said the scribe appeared
to have about enough judging by that morn
ings Eagle. "Yes, but," said the scribe
"when will yon commence!" "Well now
I'll tell you" said the pleasant official, "the
whole thing turns on the opening of Mead
avenue. It depends on that contingency
whether wo will build down here this sum
mer or not.
Mr. Smith was unwilling to state further,
but the scribe determined to sift the matter
to the bottom and hero is the result of his
dive: The depot is to bo located on the
northeast corner oi Williams street and the
track, provided Williams street is opened
out to Mead avenue and Mead opened to
Douglas by the city. .Sow here is where
the rub comes in, H. A. English owns 300
feet between tho railroad and Mead avenue,
Mr. Stone owned a piece in there also and
so does come St. Louis party. P: V. Ilealy
and his brother owns property between
Douglas avenue and Williams street through
which the lino of Mead avenue runs. Row
tho nigger in the fence is getting this prop
erty condemned. Mr. Stone is willing to
give the right of way through his place and
says it would pay the others to do the came,
becauto of the way it would enhance
the value of the remainder, but Mr. En
glish can't see. it that way, nor is it
likely that Mr. Healy regards it in that light
because it would take altogether too much
of his place; the whole length of the block.
Mr. Healy, however, expresses himself ready
to do tho fair thing, and it is probable the
council will take immediate action in the
matter. People are not inclined to be very
liberal with the Santa Fc, but this thing con
cerns ourselves equally with tho Santa Fe.
The writer is satisfied that if tho company
is assured that this street will be opened
they will begin laying material down here
within ten days- It is a matter worthy of
special and speedy attention.
AN OVERSHOT WHEEL
Tho scheme of constructing a race in west
Wichita, which was mentioned in last Fri
day's Eagle, is attracting considerable at
tention among some of our business men.
Many consider the plan is feasible and if so
no one can doubt its influence upon tho fu
luro growth of Wichita, if any company
should take tbo matter in hand.
A gentleman 'alio has had considerable
experience in similar business said 3-eiterday
that another plan had suggested itstlf to
him. He believed water could be conducted
in a pipe, say three feet in diameter, along
the aforementioned route and turned on an
overshot wheel, would give power sufficient
to run a large establishment. Tliij could
be done at a much less expense than it
would take to dig a race, but of courso
would not furnish as much power as tho for
mer. Some parties were over yesterday
looking at the situation and taking in tbo
lay of tho land gonerally.
THE CITY YESTtRDAY.
Yesterday was one of tho usually live
Saturdays. Tho streets weru crowded with
peoplo all day and there was a rush of busi
ness all round. Tho real estate boom boiled
red hot all day and tho agents report nearly
S100.000. Fulmcr's property, corner of
Douglas avenue and Wichita streets, whero
his old blacksmith shop stands was sold for
$10,000; Lee and English bought a block of
land for $15,000. Superintendent Chaso, of
the Santa Fe, bought 121 feet on East Doug
las avenue, near Hydraulic avenue, for S4.
000. Tho property bdonged to Mr. Hess, of
the Manhattan clothing house, and Mr.
Johnson, tho real estato man, had it for silo.
Johnson offered the property for sale to Jno.
Elton in Mr. ChasoV presenco and the latter
gntlcman said ho would tako it. The bar
gain was closed. Everything goes. There
never was a time in tho history of the city
when there was such a demand for real
AN AGREEABLE SURPRISE
Yesterday was the twenty-ninth birthday
of Mrs. John Kau, and also tho fifth anni
versary of he! marriage. In honor of the
event she was tendered a very pleasant sur
prise party by her husband, the genial pro
prietor of tho Germania house, and her im
mediate friends. Truly it was a complete
surprise to Mrs. Xau, as she knew nothing
of it until the invited guests commenced to
assemble last evening about 9 o'clock. Ar
rangements had been made for a supper
one hour later. At tho appointed
time thoso invited, about seventy-five in
number, had assembled, bringing with them
many nice and valuable presents for Mrs.
Nau. In the meantime a choice supper had
been prepared. The tablo was tastefully
decorated with tho most beautiful flowers.
At the appointed hour the guests were seated
and discussed the supper at length. The
latter part of tho evening was spent in danc
ing. At a late hour all returned to their
respective homes, feeling that they had spent
a very pleasant evening.
An Eaglx reporter, a few days since, hap
pened to get on the inside of a new scheme
in tho lino of social sauce. This city has
not exactly the exclusivo patent on tho new
plan, or idea, but it is growing here with
marvelous rapidity in these la--t few months.
What is it Well, it u this: It is a species
ol semi-known, or unk.no c, corretponJ
nce. One party, say a gentloman, sees a
lady who he admire, and hts not an op
portunity to form her acquaintance. He
appropriates some of bis best note paper
and proposes a correspondence. Some
times ho gets left, and S3rnetims an answer
is received in duo time, if not before. The
ball is then opened, or rather the corre
spondence, and the fun commenced.
One party trying to find out
who the other is and tbo other careful to re
main concealed. Of course tho one who
makes the first advance is always a Mr.
Jones or Smith. Tho gentlemen, however,
do not always make tho first advance. Sev
eral of our young men have unexpectedly
received letters from Miss Smith or Miss
Jones. They, of course, without delay or
hesitation answer with greatest of pleasure.
It must not be taken for granted that al
ways both parties are strangers to each
other. Sometimes it is very different, both
parties being acquainted and the one who is
at the disadvantage is looking among
strangers for a solution of the mystery.
Certainly this it giv'nS some of oar young
people an opportunity for drill in tho de
It is no wonder the Easts Fe and Frisco
should think of building a good depot here,

kept in a clean condition. As soon a the

against them, as they already have been
commenced in Squire Thomas' court and on
the above condition withdrawn.
