This line, in the absence ot any explana
tion may seem a little chimerical, but it is
not. W. M. Jones, of Des Moines, U a well
known railroad man who proposed to extend
the Carbondale road to Emporia and on to
El Dorado. Why this last scheme wa
abandoned and a new route chosen lies in
the fact that it is now known that the Chica
go, Milwaukee & St. Paul, will the coming
year cross the Missouri river somewhere
north of Atchison, running one branch
down through Atchison and Leavenworth
to Kanas City, and another branch to To
peka. "ow tbe scheme of the Kansas
corporation is to extend this line from To-
peka through Wabaunsee county to Em
poria and thence to Cottonwood Falls,
thence to El Dorado, with & branch to
Wichita, providing properly encouraged,
but if not. then across the southeast corner
of this county from El Dorado to tbe Ter
ritory, and on to Wichita Fall, Texas.
The line will bo an independent one, in
dependent of Kansas City, so far as freights
from Kansas are concerned. The 'Wichita
committee lately visiting Chicago, informed
the repres cntitive of the Chicago, Milwau
kee & St. Paul, that Wichita would be
ready to take action looking to tho securing
of the main line when it should have reached
Emporia, or to the buildjigof a branch line
to connect with the main line at the most

THE FORE-FATHER BUSINESS.
The Kansas towns which labor to turn the
tide of Kansas trade from this city to them
selves by telling of its situation in Missouri,
forget that our forefathers in the constitu
tion forbade interference with Interstate com
merce. K. C. Times.
Whcro were "our forefathers In the con
stitution" a few year since, when every able
bodied man in the state ot Kansas should
ered Ids musket, and went down to the bor
der to drive back tho sandy-haired hordes
under Jlarmadukc and Price and Shelby,
who were marching on to tbe distraction of
Kansas towns and the murdering of Kansas
people. Missouri didn't have much respect
then for Kansas or her institutions, fore
fathers -or no- forefathers. May be Missouri
has forgotten her Quantreil business in her
endeavors to keep alive htr memory of the
forelathers, but Kansas hasn't. And there
were a few border ruffian episodes too.
Kansas is not mashed on the forefather bus-
ness from a Missouri stand point, especially
when it comes to a matter of dollars rather
than sentiment. The Quantreil raid was a
stylo of inter-state commerce not exactly
relished by Kansas people.
"THIS COMING EMPIRE."
Everj body who makes at Uit to South
western Kacsss'Intests in land there. Not
withstanding an occasional fear of tbe fut
ure the general feeling is one of confidence
concerning the rt-pia -development of tho
whole western part of the state. Theloun
dations of greatness seem hardly to have
been laid in Kansas. With a continuance
of the progress which tho past year has
witnessed another decade will fled the state
nch and producme in every corner. Is
Kansas City preparing lines of trade to con
nect her with this coming empire of con
sumers? K. C Times.
"Wo are inclined to the affirmative. Tho
P&ola link would inevitably rake in the
whole of 'this coming empire of consum
ers." Undoubtedly. Again would we urge
the wind-wonder to redoubled efforts in tbe
direction of the Paola link. The North
western Kansas and Dakota road can be put
in at any timebut every day's delay en the
Paola link delays Wichita just that much in
the desired additional connection with the
Kansas City pool.
MISSOURIS' TAX COLLECTORS.
Since Torteka and Ttlvanwrtrtli fantiAT
buy in Chicago, Ne York or Boston, Sn-
teau oi ranpioving Jtvantas labor In manu
factures, it would be rather a burden on the
people to be compelled to deal in Kansas
-towns' exclusively when they can save money
.and pet what they want in Kansas City.
The matter is self-adjusting. It might be
considered a burthen to the man who is
building a home, and it Is in one sense, but
it will be his to enjoy, after completion. If
Kansas people build up cities of their own,
they will not only have them to enjoy, but
tax as well. Its the Missouri tax collector

Inauguration of an Inportant
Wichita to Control tbe Great Pork Pro
duct of Southern Kansas.
A reporter of the Eaglk visited the
pork packing establishment of A. Acker
man & Co. on west Douglas avenue, and,
through Superintendent John Mclntyre,
cained the following information in referenco
to tbe Important enterprise that commenced
yesterday at their works: On being shown
through tho house the first ew presented
to the report'r was four lines of porkers,
freshlv dressed and shambled, the last one
of which was just being fliished, numbering
eighty bead, averaging 820 pounds to the
head. A largo kettle set o er a furnace in
an adioininc department trying out the fat
just stripped from the killing of the day.
On an Inquiry as to the capacity or the
establishment the superintendent stated that
it would answer two hundred daily, the
amount they intended to slaughter after a
few days; that they hoped to enlarge to six
hundred daily as soon as practicable.
The superintendent stated, that the bogs
killed one afternoon would be cut up and
disposed of to make room for the killing of
the next afternoon, and that the work would
go on without intermission through the en
The preparation for market will bo con
ducted in large apartments in front and
rear of the dressing rooms, and in which tbe
different kinds of meats will be selected and
First tho choice hams of a certain size will
be selected for preparation for what is now
becoming known as choice California picnic
hams. A process of curing that
is entirely new and is fast gaining
faor among dealer.; another ham will be
selected as the regular family hn for gen
eral use. Then a quality of mcatlately in
troduced and handled by butchers fresh
is the loin best pork steak, which is always
sold as firtt-class. Breakfast bacon, short
rib, short and clears; back pork, prepared as
sweet pickle, shoulders dry, and boiled for
sweet pickle, and a certain part for sausage,
with pigs' feet and hogs' heads make the
latest of the marketable meat.
The superintendent stated that none but
choice hogs will be handled and tbe meats
all prepared in the choicest and most ap
proved marketable manner.
The yards adjoin tho establishment and
are constantly being filled with new arrivals
of material, and not less than one thousand
dollars, nor more than three thousand will
be paid out daily for hogs. Mr. Aclerman
superintends the buying personally.
The enterprise, started so favorably, fills s
long-felt want and will lead to killing u
larger portion of the hogs raised in this sec
tion and supplying the country with its own
meat. It will also lead to the ship
ment to eastern and southern mark
ets large quantities of marketable pork.
MURE BOOMERS ARRESTED.

FortKi.o,7. T., via. Dodge City, "ov.
12. More boomers were yesterday brought
in by tho military and Indian scouts from
Oklahoma. Those of the prisoners who
sign an agrcsment to never again tresspass
upon the Indian lands arc allowed to pass
out, but the others will be escorted out by
troops. E. C Cole, of Kingman, and author
of a book on Oklahoma and n former cor
respondent of tbe Eaglk was escorted in
with the boomers. The remaining boomers
scattered over the forbidden lands are ex
pected in as soon as they can be collected.
SEVERAL. COCD LOCATION.
Mr. S. O. Spring, of Peoria, and C. M.
Spring, of Bcardstown, Illinois, aro guests
at the Manhattan hotel. These gentlemen,
it is said, are in search of a location for a
wholesale grocery bouse, and have been fig
uring with John Exton for his new building
near the Santa Fe depot- Mr. Elton's
building is well located for tbat purpose
and has been very substantially built, ex
pecting to bo occupied for that vcy pur
pose. Tbe writer is informed on excellent au
thority that an Atchison bouse, a St. Joe
bouse and a Kansis City house, all well es
tablished wholesale grocery houses, con
template tno7iug hero or branching hero.
That they would all do well there is no
question, and they could all secure very
good quarters just now.- There is the Ex
ton building, tbe Furlev-Koth building, the
Brown bu'.ldingon Main street, and the
Grand Army building on First and Water
streets will be ready inside of thirty days.
These are all good locations, and the
buildings are pretty well suited for the pur
pose. Come ahead with your wholesale bouses,
the more the better.
WICHITA AI A WHOLESALE POINT
The advantages of this city as a a whole
sale point is becoming widely known, and
there is scarcely a day that there is not
some party here looking for a location.
High rents seem to drive off a good many,
but tbe matter of $100 or $200 more or less
a yea; is nothing if the location Is good.
Parties contemplating entering into
wholesaling should not look so much to tbe
size of the city as to tbe extent of territory
tributary to it.
It must be borne in mind tbat this is
only an infant city and has merely mado
a start in wholesaling, but any ono fa
miliar with tho state can readily tec the
great advantages she possesses as a whole
sale point, and tbo greater the number of
houses in each line, within certain I'mils,
the larger will be the trade for each. Where
there are but one or two houses in each
line tbey are regarded as having a monopo
ly, and country merchants prefer to go
whcro there is" more competition; therefore.
1 five or six good houses in each line would
do a better trade in this city than two or
three, as we have now.
J. M. Steele writes a jolly good-souled let
ter to his old friend, M. Block, of this city,
in which he sends love to several of us by
name. He compliments the writer of this
notice and says with the starting of the new
railroad lines Wichita will reach $0,000 pop
ulation in two years. If our friend Steele
was here to-day he would hardly put bis fig
ures so low as 80,000 even. Ho expresses
the fear that the Eagle will never get full
credit much less pay for all it is doing. I

1HE GOVERNMENT BUILDINQ
"Myth and Miracle" is the subject of Bob
Ingersoll'a now lecture. Myths we have al
ways with us, but It will be a miracle ii the
new postoffice building can be located to
suit any considerable numbar of the people
of this "city. There u more wirepulling
and scheming in connection with this than
has been manifested in any political contest
and tho end is not jet. Tho second propo
sition for bids has had tho effect ot develop
ing several combinations, and now tbe only
satisfactory solution of tho Vexed question
socms to bo the location otV a postoffice on
or near o cry body's property. This plan'
could not tail to harmonize all interests,
both as retards "desirable sites," and Dem-
ncrtin Hsnir&nts for nostofficcs, inasmuch
as it would open up a field for every Demo-
rrt In town. Tho excitement was
at lever heat yesterday and peti
tions for donations in favor of
ihn Averal locations were flvins in all di
rections, whilo knots of men could be found
almost anywhere discussing the situation.
Tho main fight seems to be between Main
street and Douglas avenuoiusiness interests,
and a stubborn fight is being carried on.
The Main street crowd seems to havo con
centrated on the rink, and the Douglas avo
nuo folks with south Main or Market street.
Ono gentleman who had subscribed $200
for the riuk location was asked for SS00
more yesterday, but ho thinks it would bo
moro profitablo to wait until tho thing is
settled and then buy property near tho
A reporter listened to a crowd discussing
the thing iu the postoffice yesterday morn
ing, among whom were some who deplored
a state of things that made it possible
for any combination to bribe tho govern
ment, as it were, to locate the building other
than with reference to tho convenience of
the greatest number of the people. One
gentleman said tbe beggarly sum donated by
thogocmraentfora public building for
such a city as Wichita, didn't amount to
anything, now ay, and that nearly one-half
of it would be used up before the thing was
begun. Ho thought a better plan would bo
for the city to build a $100,000 building and
given it to the government. An opera house
to cost $50,000 would probably soon be
This question absorbed all other interests
tho wholo day, and great are tho combina
tions. Later in tho day some one spread a
rumor to the effect that a dispatch had been
received from Washington to the effect that
the rink location had been settled upon, but
that is all a hoax and probably manufac
tured for tho purpose of putting a stop to
the negotiations ot the Douglas avenue
crowd, or maybe to decieve the Main street
Tho Eagle announced the departure from

Hon. C. N. Sterry, of Emooria, a loading
attorney of tbe Santa Fc, who has been con
ducting somo cases before Judge Sluss, made
us a pleasant call last evening. After com
plimenting the Eagle on tho successful
fight it was making for Kansas as against
"Poor Old Missouri," Mr. Sterry expressed
himself as fully in sympathy with the idea
of building at least one commercial city in
this state, and he was tery sanguine that
Wichita would now sweep right on to such
a goal. In his own language "without rivals,
with no jealousies to impede, and having
two trunk lines of railway, both independ
ent of the Kansas City pool, and, everything
in her lavor in the way of location, Wich
ita's future importance could hardly be
questioned." Such words from as prom
inent a man and as close an observer as Mr.
Sterry are. like "apples of gold in pictures of
THE 1NNES & ROSS BUILD1NO
The drawings of the front elevation of
the Innes & Itoss building presents some
thing unique j ct very attractive. It will
undoubtedly be one of tho most imposing

The truth may as well be admitted by alf
competitors that Innes & Ross have built
up a magnificent trade, especially in the
lines of the most valuable and fashionable
goods. The taste and judgment of Colonel
Innes is quoted as standard authority in
fashionable circles in this and many sur
rounding towns. Tbo Eaole in calling at
