and packing houses ho will ship to Wichita.
C Wood Davis returned yesterday from
Marion county, whero ho had been looking
after tho bond propositions for the Chicago,
St. Joseph and Ft, Worth railway. Tho
vote was almost unanimous for the bonds,
some Uwnships only voting two and threo
against. In no caso was tho opposition
mo.ro than twenty against.
A conspiracy was entered into by a few
parties in Marion county to obtain money by
false pretense from Mr. Davis during the
canvass in that county for his railway, but
it failed, and the conspirators will have to
answer to tho chargo in the courts. They
mistook their man when tbey attempted U
put up a job on C. Wood Davis.
Tho Eagle had a call yesterday from R.

gentlemen are in the city for the purpose of
investing and will buy property before leav
ing. They reported that tho famo of Wich
ita it spread far and wide anyone outside
of Kansas City could tell them something
about tho wonderful Wichita. It is really
remarkable tho amount of ignorance dis
played by a Kansas City man regarding
their rival out in Kansas.
The Forest City Building and Loan asso
ciation, together with tho Wichita Building
and Loan association, havo furnished the
funds for building about ISO houses in this
city. The Forest City association started a
new series on the first of this month and it
now furnishes an excellent opportunity for
anyone to join it. Through this association
an opportunity is offered for anyone to get
a houso and pay for it by weekly payments.
It is also better than a savings bank for per
sons who want to lay away a small tarn of
money every week. At the next Tuesday
night's meeting there will be a sale of
preference for a loan in each of the four
aerie of this association.
Roams Over the City, Learning
What is Stirring the
In Business, Real Estate and Railroads
and Matters Projected What
People Talk About How
They Regard Values,
No sooner had I reached the postoffice
yesterday, where the people gather for news
in the morning than I was besieged by
parties inquiring about the big offers on cer
tain property reported in tho morning H
aix, and several "parties informed me that
strangers who are here with a view of locat
ing in several lines of business were saying
that thero was no use in their
trying to invest as business prop
erty is held too high. Now, I desire
to state far the benefit of strangers that
while good business property is held at
pretty stiff prices, that which is actually for
sale is not, all things considered, unreasona
bly high. Because real estate agents, who
may seek to bring themselves into promi
nence and advertise themselves by offering
several thousand dollars too much for such
property as the county building and Kohn's
comer, which are not for sale, strangers
must not assume that theso aro the ruling
prices. Fancy figures may be offered in
good faith for choice locations, but as a
rule good business property can be had at
rates as reasonable hero as in any city in the
country with such a prospective future as
ours. Those who contemplate entering tho
jobbing or wholesale trade can find suitable
locations whero property is not unreasona
bly high. Wo havo somo half dozen job
bing houses of various sorts but no regular
wholesalo center is yet established and those
contemplating entering into tho wholesale
trado can securo suitablo property on Market
street, Lawrence, Topcka, Emporia or
Fourth avenues and build up a wholesale
corner on cither, which will be just as suita
ble for that purpose as Main street or Doug
las, and moro so. In short, permanent bus
iness centers cannot be said to bo established
here yet, and a combination of strong busi
ness men may make somo wonderful
Strangers, especially intending engaging
in jobbing in this city should first look to
tho situation of our city with respect to per
manent trade, tho facilities for reaching tho
retail trade, and tho probablo extent of that
trade. In order to bo equipped for getting
at the extent of our wholesalo trade.it will
be necessary to know something of tho ox
tent and rcsources.of tho county naturally
tributary to Wichita.
Situated as wo arc, 228 miles Irom Kan
sas City, and over COO miles from St. Louis
in the very heart of tho finest agricultural
and grazing country in the world, with rail
roads ramifjing into tho whole of that vast
territory west and south or us, whero thous
ands of settlers aro pouring in daily and
whero young cities tpring up like magic,
whose doors tho merchants of Wichita can
reach in two or threo days' less timn than
can the merchants of any other city, tbo
market for any goods is almo.-t without
limit and will grow continually. Tbu size
of our city, nlthough it is of no moan pro
portions, is no criterion as to tho amount of
jobbing that might bo don here. The ex
tent and resource of the tributary territory
is wliat should ba considered in the calcula
tion. With our five railroads already in
operation and four mora coming, no city
will bo as well equipped to supply tho im
mense fertile recion west and south-wct of
us, and a3 soon as roads can bo built
through tho Indian territory, tho south
lavs at our door. I havo thus been particu
lar in this matter because I havo heard
strangers say "You have enough wholesale
houses for tho siza of your city." If wo
wero depending on tho city for our whole
salo trado wo certainly would havo plenty of
wholesalo houses now, but it is not our own
city but tho hundreds of cities and tawns of
which wo aro tho natural commercial center,
that should ba taken into account in estima
ting the trado to bo dono here. Men of ma
ture judgment and familliar with this great
west understand this.
Mr. J. M. Officld, a wholesalo grocer of
Scdalia, Mo., who has been raised in
tho wholesale trade of tho west, was
hero a day or two and after looking tho city
over, and visiting other surrounding towns
ho concluded this was tho place for him and
ho will bo here next week to build a resi
dence. Mr. Symns, tbo big wholesale gro
cer of Atchison, who was hero last veek,
said ho had no doubt this would bo the
commercial center of tho state.
I met Messrs. Henry F. Petersen and bis
brother W. D. Petersen, of Davenport,
Iowa, who aro guests nt the Madhattan and
who como to the metropolis of the southwest
to seo what could bo seen and learn tho pros
pect for business and investment. These gen
tlemen aro jobbers of dry goods.menof largo
means and mature judgement who will make
a thorough investigation before investing.
Mr. A. F. Petersen is vice-president of one
of tho banks of his city. They express
themselves highly pleased with our city and
admire tho ability and energy of our citi
zens, but they, liko many others, think there
is altogether too much real estate boom and
that wild pricos aro being offered for prop
erty. I respectfully refer them to tho facts
set forth in tho beginning of my article.
I met one of our leading brrckmakers yes
terday and a gentleman asked him why ho
was not making brick. JWhyf" said he, "it
don't pay to use up the land. Land any
where near Wichita is worth from
$500 to $1,000 per acre, and at theso rates
it does not pay to tear up land and sell the
brick at $8 per thousand." So it goes, and
if it continues this way wo will havo to get
our brick from Kansas City and other towns
where the land is cheap.
I was told that kids now steal horses from
people's premises and ride them around
town and then turn them loose. This prob
ably explains tho loosing of so many horses-
Tho police aro onto some racket just now,
but it is not ripe to givo away yet. They
wero out on the scent last night and the
night previous, and there is no telling what
tho harvest will be.
GOLD WITH SILVEK.
A few days ago a gentleman who lives a
short distance northeast of town, bought a
tentof a fellow for tho sum of two dollars.
It was night when ho paid the money and
thought he would give the man two silver
dollars, but had some $20 gold pieces
mixed with hu silver change, and by mis
tako handed out two of them. They were
accepted and the fellow lighted a match,
looked at tho money in such a wav the giver
could not see, and pronounced it "all O. K."
The next morning it was discovered that it
was not that way.
This was about 9 o'clock on Saturday
evening, tho samo time that tho horse and
buggy was stolen from the corner of Law
rence and Douglas avenues, and the same
party is suspected of committing the but of
fense. A combination effort is being made
for the party.
ANOTHER HORSE HITCHED WRONO.
Yesterday, near noon, a gentleman
hitched his horse at the corner of Market
and Second streets and repaired to a neigh
boring house to attend "to some business.
After returning in a few minutes he found
that his sorrel nag had left for parts un
known. A corps of horse men were immediately
engaged and galloped in every direction but
without being able to find the desirable
naer. rereaps alter taking a rammer vaca
tion he will return.
'TRUTH STRANGER THAN FICTION,"
That the heading of this is true events t
T,.t t,. tnrmiTWl in tnn domestic tela-
tions of one family in Wichita which cul-j
minated yesterday in the quiet settlement
of that which at one time looked like thei
shedding of human gore wmen wouia nave
ended in ue loss oi one or more uuuwu
lives, and which would hare created a sen
sation such as society seldom'wUnesies. It
also proves that the wildest fanciu of the
novelist is tame compared to it. The story
of Enock Arden, which was written to por
tray one phaze of life in fiction, while the
following happened in onr great city where
at least two of the parties are well known, as
they have been residents of the city for over
To begin this strange story. In a beauti
ful valley in the central part of New York
state there nestled one of those handsome
little hamlets which romancists love to des
cribe, is located one of those academies for
the education of the fair maidens of the
neighborhood. It was three years ago this
month of rosy June, when, at the com
mencement of the school, there was one
among tbo number who graduated with the
highest honors, who'stood highest in intel
lectual and physical beauty.
Among her most ardent admirers in the
audience was one whoso front name is Har
ry, who as a taaveling man, after his day's
work was dono was spending the night in
the village, and thecyening at the college
who upon first sight fell desperately in lovo
with one of the Graduates. After an intro
duction and some weeks had passed he
asked her hand in marriago which was
given by her, but the parents stood in the
way as they positively refused to give their
consent which finally ended in elopement
and marriage. The union seemed a happy
one and for two years they lived as happy as
could bo when Harry introduced to bis wife
one with whom ho had traveled. He was
tall and manly in feature with an oily
tongue and ingratiated himself into the con
fidence and lovo of the girl wife. Harry
saw the affections of his wife gradually be
coming dissipated and demanded an explan
ation, which at tho time was not given.
Still he tried bo save his wife and for this
purpose left the east, came to Wichita, and
as he thought, established his future home
whero he would be safe in his domestic rela
tions, but he was doomed to dis
appointment, as a month ago he
surmised that his wife had heard from
tho destroyer of hi3 happiness when ho ac
cidentally met him on the street of Wichita
and treated him friendly, begging as one
asking for his wife which as tho Eequcl will
show he did not do.
Sunday night ho was caught in company
with the wife. Tho husband on Monday
morning informed the deceiver that if he
caught him at his house again ho would
surely commit murder, as ho had provided
himself with fire arms especially for that
purpose. He whs seen on the streets all day
Monday with a revolver up his
coat sleeve, whilo the man he sought kept
himself secluded in tho privacy of his room
in the hotel.
Now comes tho most singular part of this
true story. Tuesday night Harry went to
tho room of the docciver and asked an in
terview, which was granted. His first
question was, "Dy you love my wife!"
"Will you tako her, love, cherish and
Answer "I will."
"Well, sir," said Harry, "ou can have
her, the is yours. You shall tavo her in the
injrning and my parting blessing is. If you
ever mistreat her you shall feel the
strong arm of a discarded husband's
vengeance. I will pursue you to the end of
tho earth, but what I will havo your life's
blooi. As long as you treat her well you
need novcr stanf in fear of me. If at any
time you should need assistance call on me
first. You know mo well enough to know
th'.t I am not laboring under any excite
ment and moan just what I say. As my
vifo has confessed that sho does not lovo
mo and that you are the ideal of her heart
and loves you to madness, I see I can never
command her lovo again. I believo that
before I met you her love was undi
uidcdlymine. Since fate has so willed it
as it is and I could not bear to seo her un
happy, which I know she would bo if I at
tempted to restrain her. I relinquish all
claim and only hops it will be for her hap
piness, as God knows I would lay down my
life lor her."
After exchanging tho compliments of the
evening Harry left to return in tho morning
at 8 o'clock with his wife, her trunks and
sachels. After bidding the happy couple
God speed ho went about his business.
She was accepted at tho hotel as Mrs. T.
C. Sorrell, whilo in point ol law she was
Mrs. Harry Dorsey.
Tho two remained at the hotel yesterday
and last night and expect to leave this morn
ing for an eastern tour.
This Sorrell is tho samo ono who left this
town once before under very uncomplimen
tary circumstances. His name is doubtless
recognized as being the ono who contracted
several debts that yet remain unpaid. His
former visit to this city was accompanied
with results that make it very suggestive
that ho must possess the lion's share of the
gall of this world or bo would never have
"THE GOLDEN EAGLE."
Messrs. F. S. Dennia and S. W. Bailey

boat on tho Big river and floated it down to

Riverside park, whero it will roceivo its

A SMASH UP.
Douglas avenue was the scene of another
first-class runaway yesterday. A horse and
carriage was bitched at tho corner of Market
and Dauglas. It belonged to Mr. A. T.
Heller. The horse became frightened at
something and made safe his cscapo at the
expenso of tho halter. He was east bound
for a block and then attempted to turn
north-on Lawrence avenue. In the attempt
the carriage struck an old fashioned road
wagon that took in the whole business. Tho
horse found his back neirer the ground than
his feet, and the buggy, a large portion of
it was wail suited to tli3 purpose of kindling
wood. No ono was hurt.
