The Winficld people have taken out a
charter for another i.;ilro:ul from "Wichita
to their city, and down through the Teiri
tory. The editorial page of the "Wichita lleacon

not mend in Ihh paiticular, to send along a
key of some sort to explain the meaning of
its articles for the benefit of the average

The trouble is with the editor of the
Democrat. Its not every community whoe
average leader is up to the mental standard
maintained by our esteemed contemporary.
There will be a Soldiers Kcuuion held at

CAPITAL AND LABOR
Bob Ingersoll figures up the conflict be
tween labor anil capital in this way, but
remember Bob is an inlidel:
"Here is a shoe Miop. One man in the
shop is always at work always industri
ous. In the evening he goes courting a
good, nice girl. There are live other men
in the shopWho don't do any such thing.
They spend half their working hours in
loatiVig and their evenings in dissipation.
The lirst young man b-and-by cuts out
from these others, and gets a boot and shoe
store of his ow n. Then he marries the girl.
Soon lie is able to t-ike his wife out to ride
of an evening. Five laborers, his former
companions, w ho see him indulging in this
luxury, retire to a neighboring saloon and
pas a resolution that there is an eternal
strugc.li J tween labor and capital."

A LETTER FROM SWEDEN.
An Old Time Wichitan "Writes from Over
the Eiff Pond.
Kiustlvnstadt, Swecdcu, Jub 30, '80.
To the Editor of the Eagie.
As per promise I will drop 3011 a few
lines from across the pond and give a par
tial account of myself since I left home in
the "Valley of the Xile of America."
As you know, we left Wichita on the 10th
of June last and arrived in Chicago by way
of St. Louis, on the. morning of the 12th.
We had not seen much life in any place on
the trip but here seemad to .be a real Wich
ita boom. We left Chicago in the evening
of the 1 1th of June by the Chicago and
Atlantic and arrived at the American me
trop lis iu the morning of the ICtii. Passed
some fine agricultural country near Chicago,
but we 0')u got in among the hills and
timber. How the farmers cm live on such
land is to me a secret, and .us they em live,
we farmers of Sedgwick county Kansas
ceilainly ought to, and I mote than ever
have faith in Sedgwick county land. In
Xcw York Wo met with Morrii Kohn. If
business in Chicago seemed good it did so
here much more; some places fairby melled
strong with money.
We sailed on the steamer Germania of
the White Star line, with about o00 passen
gers. Said vessel has crossed the Atlantic
over one hundred time. The ship is 4S9
feet long, 4.1 feet wide, ."5,00 1 tonnage and
4, ."500 hore-power. It is considered a line
and safe vessel, but not by two or three
days as fast as some others, and many a
.New Yorker will not cross iu any other
(so saj' the agents.) Close to 2sew York
we met the "City of Borne," said by good
judges to be the finest vessel that floats.
Our boat, at all events bi ought us safely
over. We lauded in Liverpool on Sunday
morning June 27th, and right glad wcie
we that Ave could step .once more
on terra iinna. Nothing occurred on
bonul the ship to bieak the monot
ony but the rescuing of two fishermen
who had got lost fiom their ship, which
was anehoied on the banks of Xew Found
land. They got aatr.iy in a heavy fog and
had been tossed about three days without
much food or water, when one night, by a
mere accident, wo heard their ay for help,
tlie ship was stopped qn the instant and the
men and their boat taken on board. They
weic for some time the observed of us all
and both were rather young; one of them
a Geiman born in Stettin, the other a Swede
from Karlskrona, both good sailors.
Very little phrying or dancing occurred
on boaul and the observations of the old
Irishman may have been correct when he
said: "The boys have worked all the life
out of them in the states." There was some
seasickness on the vo3age, I was one of the
Several famous Americans were along,
such as P. T. Barnum, Henry Ward
Beecher and others. We did not deem it
safe to make their acquaintance or swapp
jokes with them, as both are, or used to be,
Upon landing in Liverpool we had to
pass through the custom house. The boys
who ued the weed were quite anxious to
see the performance over. An oldish, jolly
man had a good supply of his favorite
brands that he distributed carefully on his
person and among his effects. We all
claimed that he would not pass through
the custom house unscathed, but he was
sanguine, and when the moment came w c
weie curious to see him handled, and the
way he had to extricate package after pack
age from around his premises (?) gave us
all, but him. a pie-nic. lie was taken to a
higher court, and when, on his return, we
asked him his experience he answered,
"The longer 3011 live P3- cheesus krist the
more py cheesus krist 3011 will learn." Af
ter gctting-to our hotel and fixing up we
sti oiled out into town. It is an old one
and very inteiesting. Wcweie hungiyand
tried to get some lefreshments, but all was
shut up till 1 o'clock p. m., and we had to
submit to the customs of the count it as we
did not know their back ways.
We cntci cd a church but it was so quiet
that we gotsleep, and had to leave or get
disgraced and we chose the former.
While in Liverpool we visited the expo
sition open to all nations, and, though a
local affair, gotten up by local enterprise, it
was a creditable one and well worth seeing
The seafaring trades were especially well
lopresented; models for the smallest canoe
up to the modem ocean steamer were there.
America had little or nothing there worth
mentioning except pop corn and chewing
gum, and the local papers in commending
the chewing gum manufacturer's enter
prise hoped for the sake of the British
people "that the chewing gum habit
would not take root in the queen's do
main. Gladstone's visit to Liverpool at this
time caused a great deal of stir, and his
speecho were listened to by thousands 01
as main as could get near enough to listen.
It looked to us almost like presidential
election times iu America.
Henry "Ward Needier wa also with tho
Grand Old Man, and so seemed the masses I
of the people.
"'c aKo visited the Great Eastern which
wa on exhibition in the Mercer. Some en
terprising EnglMiman had hired the old
thing and was doing a laud office business.
It was well worth the price and time and
we were very lucky in getting aquainted
with an old mi captain who vouchsafed
such information in regard to sea mutters
a we land-crabbs did not posses, but it i3
too lengthy aud v.e will not send it here.

PITTSBUTG, CRAWFORD CO., KANS,
The Eldorado of Southestern Kansas.
To the Editor of the Eagle.
In sunshine and in shadow.
Had journeyHl along siulnjj a son?,
In search of Eldorado."
Had the author of the poem, of which the
foregoing is a selection, lived in the present
time, and become acquainted with the city
of which I write' he mightsurely have found
a more satisfactory ending to bis beautiful
Your correspondent, as it fortunately
proved, was destined to wait over a few hours
in thia attractive and growing city, and the
attractions proved so great, that the hours
were gladly increased into days, to enable
mo to write up a city that was heretofore
comparativly unknown to me, and, but for
accident, might have remained so "ad infin
itum." Hurrying though I was to other
fields, I could not resi-t tarrying here, as, af
ter soiourning in numerous other places of
which so much has been said and written,
this placo proved on oasis in the desert, and
"sure enough" Eldorado.
It is situated on a prominent elevation in a
rolling prairie, as fine a location as could
have been made, and can readily bo seen for
milc3 from any direction. It is right in the
heart oi the best coal mining district in Kan
sas, being underlaid throughout with a four
foot vein of choice coal, and has direct con
nection with four prominent through lines of
Railwaj. It is also in a very fertile farming
district, and, considering the fact that it is
scarcely shi3ear3 old, and contains upwards
of 4,000 inhabitants, it can't but be admitted
that it is indeed a youthful wonder.
That so little, comparatively, is known of
this City away from homo, is altogether ow
ing to the fact that from its incipiency it has
been one of constant and healthy growth, its
progress being so successful that it needed
no clarion notes to keek it moving, its nat
ural advantages insuring it always a good
hoalthy and prolific existence. The truo
modesty and simplicity of its business men,
who, without exception, have ben success
ful, is wonderful; they universally carry the
conviction that newspaper wind is unneces
sary to their welfaro, yet notwithstanding
this condition of affairs, and also the fact
that I have been very hospitabby treated by
them, I must beg indulgence at their hands,
and briefly write them up, as I believe tnat
the world is entitled to know them and their
wondorful city, even if they think, a3 well
they have a right to, that as far as the success
of their City is concerned, it is superfluous.
I scarcely know whore to begin, as attract
ions meet me on all sides, yet, as I must cur
tail my account somewhat for want of time,
I will touch in detail on the leading features
only, leaving it to the common sense of my
readers to naturally infer that whore such
great attractions, etc., are it naturally follows
that the scale gradually reduces to the pea
nut stand, and well filled up betwoen.
The railroad advantages horo are surely
great, having, ai)before stated, direct connec
tions with four leading lines of railway, viz.,
The St.Louis & San Francisco, the A. T. S.
F., the Mo. Pacific and the K C. Ft.S & Gulf.
The first was here at the beginning of the
growth of the City. The Gulf reached it
two years later, and the A. T.&S.F. and Mo.
Pacific have reached it during the present
year, and notwithstanding the hard times
elsowhore, and so general throughout the
country, these two last-named roads have
given It such a push, that thore can possibly
be no early futuro halt in it3 growth. Two
other proposed roads have lately bean sur
veyed to this place; tho Kansas Northern &
Dakotn, and the Fort Scott &,Southern, and
tho indications 'ire pointing .strongly to the
competition of one, or both, of them during
the coming yer. So much lor its Eailroad
advantages, which, it must be admitted are
second to very few places in the State.
Tho local indu-tries are numerous and
vast. First in order h the Kansas & Tex'is
Coal Co., who reeentty succeeded the Kogers
Coal Co., of which D. Bameey is superinten
dent, and Ed. Vail, agent, owning 4,000 acres
of choice coal lands in and adjacent to the
city. They now operate seven shafts, sc eral
lp.rgo drifts, and innumerable strip bank?,
giving employment to 1,000 men in thoir
busy season, and never less than fivo hundred
at n season of the year. Their advertised
ertpneity is 150 cars lump, and fifty cars nut
and slack coal daily, und I am credibly in
formed by its employees that the onh' thing
that stands in the v)ay of its increaeing its
lump coal capacity, is the difficulty it exper
iences in obtaining sufficient quantity of cars
with which to do so. In order to enable the
reader to f -im a fair idea of the numper of
cars needed for the aforesaid 200 cars daily
capacity, I make the following safe approxi
mation, to wit; 200 cars at mines peing
loaded, 200 cars of consignees unloading, and
400 in transit, either way, making a total
daih requirement of EOO cars to keep this
enormous busintss in operation.
In addition to its coal interest, this Com
pany use the surface of thoir coal lands for
agricultural and stock purposes, thus obtain
ing two-fold benefits from thern. In the
heart of the Citv they have one of the finest
and best appointed business buildings I hiTe
vet seen in tho State, it bei.iK 50x120 feet,
three stories and basement, and finished
throughout with hard wood. The base
ment, first story, and one-halt of the second
story being utilized by this Company in the
General Merchandise business, the balance
of the second story is devoted to business j
offices and on the third door, the whole ofi
which is devoted to Secret Society business, j
we find tho most complete Lodge-room md I
adjuncts, tnat it has never been our lot to
view within the borders of the ".Tayhawk"
state, in fact, very few large cities excel it,
and the Masonic ind K.P. orders that occupy
it may well be proud, as they are, of their
commodious and attractive quarters.

sources they distribute $25,000 monthly
throughout the immediate vicinity.thua mak
ing a total disbursement of 50,000 monthly,
all of which goes to the benefit of this City.
The people of the place, as a rule, are proud
of this institution, and they may well be, as
many cities much larger, wonld strain thoir
finances to cet such an institution located in
Nest in order come the Zine Smelters.
These enterprises were attracted to this place
by its coal fields, where they obtain the
very best fuel obtainable for their purposes.
The ore is obtained on the lines of the
"Frisco" and "Gulf Katlways, about fifteen
or twenty miles from here, thus making very
light freights on their raw material, aud as
the coal is right in their midst, they are not
burdened to death with frieghts,and are con
sequently so located as to have these extraor
dinary advantages over other similar enter
prises in the couniry.
Among the first of these manufactories U
"The Granby Mining & Smelting Company"
with a $100,000 plant, consisting of a Sie
mens furnace, and four Belgian furnaces, the
latter containing 912 retorts in the aggregate.
The3 smelt 5 000 lbs. of ore daily, consum
ing four cars of coal in the operation, and
producing 2,000 lbs., of spelter, or zinc.
They employ 125 men, and their pay-rolls
amount to $5,000 monthly. The quality of
ore used by this Company is superior to the
ordinary other American ores, the products
of which are classed with imported zinc, thus
insuring them from fourty to fifty cents per
100 lbs. more for their spelter than is ob
tained for tho average American product.
Next, and ranking equal, to say tho least
to this concern, come the Smelters of Bober,
iauyon s Uo, Tho works 01 this urm em
brace eight Belgian furnaces of 100 retorts
each, which daily smelt 50,000 lb3. of ore,
producing 2,000 lbs. of speltor, and using
fivo car loads of coal. They employ 120 men
and their pay-rolls average $3,000 monthlj.
This concern also operates a store in the City,
and whilo not being quite as extensive as the
one of tho Kansas & Texas Coal Co., it car
rye a nice select stock of general merchandise,
aud is noted for tho fair and reasonable man-

The other two smelters are operated by
"W. fc J. Lanyon'and S. H. Lanyon & Co.
respectively. Their works are of equal capac
ity embracing four Belgian furnaces each
smelting daily 25,000 lbs, of ore, producing
1,000 lbs. of spelter each. Their pay-rolls
show sixty men, and $3,000 paid on account
of each one monthly. The pay-rolls of these
various Smelters do not embrace by & con-

buted by them in the plce, the fourteen cars
of coal used daily by them, being largely
the product of miners' labor, and should be
added to pay-roll amounts hereinbefore men

bursements. In addition to these large industries, and
which are permanent institutions, wo find
two first class flouring and feed mills, one
first-elass planing mill, a good carriage fac
tory, a soda-water and bottling institution,
and ull other intermediate and small enter

We also find an excellent water system
here, with a bountiful supply of prohibition
liquid, enough for a city even twice its size,

to this fast growing City, the supply can

Among the other leading business institu
tions are two Nationol Bnnks, each with a
$50,000 paid up capital stock, and well con
ducted in oven respect. The Lanyon Mort
gage Company, of which Mr. Frank Ph'ter
is manager, has a paid up capital of $50,000
and is doing much to build up tho City.
The two hotels here are unusually attrac
tive, particularly the Metropolitan, under the
management of H. J. Ltrimer, formerly of

A very attractive feature of tho place, and
one iuai is immeaiateiv" noticeable upon!
reaenmg tne uity, :s the splendid condition
of its streets. They are as fine as possible
being ver wide, with wide side-walks, sup
erbly guttered, and graded with Joplingrayel,
a material that hardens until the whole sur
face of the street is as perfect as could be '
made b the most extravagant use of concrete.
Tney are always free from dust, and add
largely to tho comforts of tho prominent bus
iness places being construcred of brick and
neat and atir&ctive in their desighs, and
what ies frame buildings of this nature thero
are left, are fast being replaced by substantial
bricks, several transformations of this nature
being under way now.
On every hand do we sea evidences of thrift
and prosperity, old houses that in the prim
itive days of this place wero rushed up hur

of immigration, are fast being transformed
into substantial and spacious residences, and,
