RIGHTS OF WAY.
A SERIOUS RAILROAD TALK!
To our Mayor and City Council
and Business men.
Are we to Hayo aUnsincsa Center and.
a Center of Business, or AlaAvlciah
Sentiment and a Flattened
After all it looks now as if it would have
itcin a wise thing for the city to have adopt
ed and carried ou5 tho Eagle's April Fool
suggestion by rushirg ail tho tracks across
the Little River and into a union depot on
tho peninsula, before Oak Davidson had
time or opportunity to lay out Riverside ad
dition. But this right of way question baa
to be met, met now and mot squarely and
unflinchingly and settled. Thero are all
lands of suggestions and propositions being
tucked into tbe bosoms and crammed into
the noggins of the members of the city coun
cil, by interested and by disinterested peo
ple, homo of which aro very emotional,
somo very wild, and few of any busi
ness sense whatever. Thero have been
suggestion.? that if carried out would
involve tbe expenditure of a half million of
dollars and a consequent debt of that amount
upon our city, or 6ix or seven timea more
than all our present indebtedness, a scheme
to load our city and its prosperity down with
with debt and heavy taxes to buy just what
we have more than an abundance of already;
an Issue of bonda to bny mora fctreets, or
what amounts to tho eaine thing, to buy
costly blocks to make strceta or rights of way
out of them. As everybody who baa desired
it, probably, has had a chance to buzz the
mayor and tbo different members of tho
couueilou thiss bj et, tbu Eaglij proposes
to stick in iU oar and have its say, and we
hope that what we say will be a dispassion
ately considered as it is offered. Now listen,
gentleman of tbo council:
Immediately following tbe removal of the
Indians and the opening of this country to
settlement, a number of gentlemen, who for
years had their oyo; upon the junction of the
Littlo and Great Arkansas rivers as just tho
point to found a groat city, laid out Wichita
on tho broadest, lovolest :,ito to be found in
tho entire country, ;md their successors were
and have alwa3's been agreed touching the
ono j-ingle proposition, that to make it tbe
leading central city of tho stato all that was
ncrexjary was to make it the railway center
of the etato. To this end somo of us have
worked night and day, yes many of us, and
for yearn worked unselfishly and harinou
oujly. With this central idea ever to tho
front, very broad etrects and avenues wero
laid dt. That for which wo havo worked
and labored ho long, for which wo havo spent
our money and bonded oursolves, the rail
road, are coming, coming in fuch numbers
is we hardly dared at tirst to hope, aud as they
como in response to our aid, invitation and
demand, ttiy ask to bo taken in, taken in, in
accordance wj,h our implied promiso and
their expectation. New, Mr. Mayor, and
Messrs. Councilman, theso streets and alley.;
of ours, aud there aro huudnxis of them,
running ;ait aud west aud north and south,
wero all laid out an.l all dedicated to the
pubbo with no other idea, no other inten
tion, but as and for thoroughfares, laid out
for sidewalks, for wagon.-;, for carts, for
drays, expresses, and busses, for street cars,
for motor cars, for cable car.?, for steam
car?, and for o cry vehiclo under heavens,
ued by man and found necewary to the
traffic, travel anil upbuilding of a great city,
aud for no other purp ?o. Thousands of peo
ple who later ceeing, believing that Wich
ita wa3 going to make jubt what
we bad all boon working for,
to-wit, a railway center aud a oity,ra3hed in
and bought property, bought property with
their ees open, bought property in the
suburbs and all around, knowing, expecting,
in fa'-ts, hoping, that thoji who had been
working for these roads had not failed of
thtur aim, but that tin roa Is wero bona fido,
would b-iyond any question, como, and como
into tho city. Thus thou-auds of lots-iiao
bdcn bought east of the Santa Fe tracks ai.J
west of the river wilh tho fullest knowledge,
with no other expectation than that tho
roads inch had been provided for muct and
would po built, aud that they would como
just along tho very street; or along tho
streeto contiguous to where they .iad bought,
and but for tho expectancy of which
roads they never would have bought,
an I but for which expected roads nine out
of ten of them would lpjver have become
re-ddent of the town at all. The- ory lots,
along these streets, now, to-day, with the full
knowledge of their owners that theso roads
are coming, and coming beyoi.d any ques
tion, coming just as they have Leen expecting
and hoping, tha?e very lots arc hold at fig
ures which two years agowotili' have been con--iderod
high for tho choicest lots in the older
and best sottkvl resident districts in tho city.
Anil thero is not a man who laid off an ad
dition between Fifth avenue and tho hill, not
a man who has bought a lot within these
limits who, if bo knew anything of the his
tory or prospects of the town, but that knew
that if the roads ever came they must
come down through those additions or
keop clear bsyoul tho limits of town
which would mean clear beyond College
Hill, for the Collego Hill streets are just as
sacred as tho streets between hero and Chis
And auotk3r thing wo would liko to im
press upon tho lien who are our representative-!,
and who not only represent our proper
ty and prosperity considered as a whole, bus
wbos? duty it is to benefit tho gieatest num
ber and the greater interests; and that is,
that the welfare of our business center must
be conserved ana ever Iw kept as solid and
compact as possible. To scatter business is
to destroy it, largely, and if tho business of
the town fails then there will be uo demand
for stroets nor lots.by railways or by anybody
else. Bring n couple of roads up or down on
the west ide of tho Big River, and a couple
down Fifth and Mead avvuues and an anoth
or couple dorm along the backs of Chisholra
creek, and one or two just over College
Hill, and whnre mil .Wichita's business be?
Where her exchange, hor market, hsr
board of trade, her clearing kouo, her hanks
her hotels or where aaytfaiug else! We
wouldn'c be a dry bus an ovtrgrown village
scattero 1 from hill to horizon and all over
the river and creation, and hteh wouldn't
attract a purchasing merckant ten miles.
Lots were laid out that ther might bo bud:
Lots are to be covert! with Du-inss houses.
bins, warehou-es. machinery, material of all
descriptions, as well as tvith homa-; streets to
be lilled in with ma ?adam or steel rails or
with whatever is ueces.sary to carry, to con
vey the traffic and travel: tbe sidtvwalks
are sufficient for the eieitrians.
Several coancilmen and twice over several
citizens having asked our individual opinion
touching this matter, we give it, give it
honestly, and we hope in such language as
they, or anyone else cannot fail to under
stand. Wo with them have worked very
hard and very long for the prizs which is
now almost if not entirely within our grasp
and no pumped up sentiment must bo per
mitted ruin us. So far as we aro individ
ually concerned, before consenting to the
annulling of tho labors of years, tho council
has our consent to run a railroad through
every street around the Roost and through
and over the Roost itself when all the
streets are occupied, rather than to take tko
chances of dropping back to tho 6tatU3 of
an ordinary county town, rather than fail,
now, in making Wichita a great city.
A paper is being circulated in the city ask
ing the city council to allow tho Kansas
Midland road to come down Fifth avenue or
Mead avenue, or the strip between those ave
nues. They want the council to refuse

Last Saturday a farmer brought a wagon
load of corn in tho city and halted on East
Douglas avonuo for a buyer. Ono of tho
corpulent grain buyers, with a loaded pipe,
after making tho usual announcement that
corn, and in fact grain generally, was way
down and had about as much now as bis
mill could possibly handle or he could dis
pose cf in any wa y, asked tho ownrr what
ho would cell at. Tho littlo old speech ap
parently bad its desired effect oa tho farmer,
as ho coemed disposed to tako the first price
The bargain made, the load was weighed,
and tho buyer told his friend where to dump
it. Ilwas noticed tht the corn seemed very
heavy, to much so indeed that the corpulent
buyer finally decided that something was
wrong and startc-.lo n a tour of insjwetion.
Ho Eoon found that the bottom of the wagon
bed was covered with Band. A discussion
followed tho revelation and somo weighing
was douo for tho purpose of getting tbe
weight of sand. The: e was near a thousand
pounds o it.
Tho farmer seemed rather tad when ho
saw himsslf caught at tho trick aud ths
grain buyers of tho city give tho "'sand buy

prove thas the affair was a slur on tho real
About 2 o'clock yesterday afternoon, a

suffering intensely, wa escorted into tho

Ho said hi name was Creal from Augujta,
Butler county: and could give no very con

present plight othi-r than that ho fell down a
flight of stairs after leaving or having been

AT THE OPEltA HOUSE.

was well filled and tho play was received
with ominant satisfaction by tho the audi
onca. Jagon, the Stringier, was taken by Frank
A. Tannihill, a fluibhsd aud accomplished
actor of the old school. There was a magne
tism in his acting aud voice that caught tho
attention of the audience when fir.it he ap
peared upon tho stngo and held it till tho
close. He brought out overythiug that is in
tho character and did it well. In tha second
tableau, whero ho fears recognition by Lous
talot.; ho arises in grandeur and depth of

Mr. Eisner Grandiro had Blanchard, a con

The authorities both county and city, are
making a joint effort on something that may
make a weak pla?o iu the earth if they juc
cee I in their efforts. It is nothing of an or
dinary nature; nothing of exactly local im

is thought that Wichita would be a likely to
catch the mo-t cunning thieves and robber?

A BASE BALL CLUB.
The schema for having a first class base
ball club in this city is attracting soma at
tention now-a-days among thoso who are in
terested in sporting matters. An effort will
be made to get tho club in tho Western
League, which takes in tbo cities of Leaven
worth, St. Joe, Atchison, Topeka, Denver
and Kansas City. If this schamj should fail
tha second effort will bo to be a member of
tho State League.
It is proposed to form a company with a
stock of $5,000 for backing of tha club.
There will be a meeting this week of somo of
tho citizens for the purpose of raising tho
stock necessary. Mr. Ad Jones has been to

Mr. O. C. Daisy expects to put up a brick
business building on East Douglas avenuo.
It will be located between Market street and

have a front of fifty feet and will be ono
hundred feet deep and four storios high. Mr.
Daisy is looking up tho question and will
commence work in tho early spring. Ho is
figuring on it but has not decided as j-et as
to tbe general plan of tho building.
Wo express tbe opinion of the large ma
jority of our citizens in saying that wa arc
sorry that tbo enterprising firm of Colo &
Jones, the mammoth clothiers of this place,
have concluded to elce business m this city
and embarka in business in tho growing city
of Wichita, Kansas. These enterprising gen
tlemen have been deliberating upon this
move for two mouths pasr, and would havo
been establitbsd ero now, had it been possi
ble for them to becuro the stora room that
they desired. On Saturday last they fcuo
coodod in leasing their store, and about the
tirst of tha year wnl enter into possession of
it. Our city will lose two of its most enter
prising citizen, and Wichita v ill gain two
of the greatest hustlers in business they havo
ever seen. Whilo wo lament tho los3 of
Messrs. Colo t Jone; to our city, wo extend
