THE TAVERN PARTNERS
Frank IV. Leonard.
Because Columbia people and in
stitutions appealed to him and he be
lieved there was a field here for a
really high class hotel, Frank W.
Leonard, for thirty-two years active in
the hotel business decided that he
would take up the management of
the new Daniel Boone Tavern. The
work of building up a notel business
is not a new one to Mr. Leonard. He
has seen small hotels developed into
some of the most prosperous in this
territory and has been active himself
in the developing of two in the two
chief cities of the state, the Southern
in St. Louis and the Sexton in Kansas
The new manager of the Daniel
Boone Tavern knows the hotel busi
ness "from the ground up." Starting
as key and mail clerk in the Southern
in St. Louis thirty-two years ago, he
has served as clerk, as assistant man
ager, as assistant superintendent of
dining car service on the Missouri
Pacific, and later as manager of the
Sexton. His work with the Southern
during the seventeen years he was
connected with that hotel carried him
up to the position of assistant man
ager nine years after he had started
in the business.
From the Southern, Mr. Leonard
went to the Missouri-Pacific, his work
putting him in active charge much of
the time of that railroad dining car
service in the territory from St.
Louis to Pueblo and from Kansas
City to Claremore, Okla. When he
took charge of the Sexton Hotel at
Twelfth and Baltimore, Kansas City,
shortly after that hotel was com
pleted he had a building with 100
rooms and a trade that had to be
built up. After a short time with the
Sexton, Mr. Leonard was forced to
arrange for just double the number of
rooms. The Sexton became well
known throughout the Kansas City
territory as well as locally, and, in
addition to the new rooms which were
built. Mr. Leonard arranged for
special features at the Pennant Cafe
which was operated in connection with
iRigo, the Gypsy violinist was intro
duced to Kansas City at the Pennant
by Mr. Leonard, and the Pennant soon
came to have the reputation of being
the most popular cafe in Kansas
City. The violinist became widely
known in theatrical circles and the
Pennant Cafe was packed almost
every night. Later, Mr. Leonard
brought the first team of tango
dancers to Kansas City, this feature
at the Pennant to be followed by
Lucien Denni, Kansas City light
opera composer and pianist.
Mr. Leonard first heard of the
building of the new Boone Tavern
fourteen months ago. After each trip
he made to Columbia he became more
and more certain that he wanted to
take charge of the new building.
"Columbia now has the hotel," said
Mr. Leonard, "and I believe and ex
pect that the town will do its part in
helping justify the builders and those
interested in the pushing of the hotel
movement. I am sure that with proper
co-operation there will be no question
about the tavern's success."
From newsboy to hotel operator and
editor of Tavern Talk, the biggest
hotel magazine in this part of the
country that in brief is the story of
Barney Alisky, partner of Frank W.
Leonard in the management of the
new Daniel Boone Tavern. Every big
undertaking has behind it a certain
amount of energy, a force, always
active in doing new things. This is
apparent in Barney Alisky.
The younger member of the two
man partnership which is operating
the new hotel had his first business
success on the streets of Kansas City
as a newsboy carrying the Kansas City
Star. He was successful in this, and
his success in this smaller enterprise
led him to become interested in the
printing business. At the age of 12 he
was in a printing office In Kansas
City. His interest in this line grew
until at the age of 22 he was half
owner of Tavern Talk, then a much
smaller magazine than it is today. The
hotel periodical, had a small circu
lation among hotel men of the great
southwest It was popular. With a
young man and several popular con
tributors on its staff it became more
generally recognized and read.
Mr. Aliskey then went into a new
field of printing, the bill-of-fare work
for hotels and cafes, making it a good
paying business. He became known
over several states as the head of the
Kansas City Bill-of-Fare Press and
the business which had been consider
ed of little profit became one of the
best paying printing businesses in
Mr. Alisky has studied hotels and
the field where new hotels are to be
opened up. Scarcely a big hotel has
opened within the last few years that
he has not been present to report the
event in Tavern Talk and to learn
more about a business which is so
much a-part of his life work.
Mr. Alisky has seen hotels fall and
hotels succeed. He judges hotel
fields by people he meets in the dif
ferent sections and he says that the
Daniel Boone Tavern, partly because
of the people who live In this section
of the country, will be a success.
"Right off hand," said Mr. Alisky,
"it might appear that the Daniel
Boone Tavern is a tremendous under
taking for Columbia. But, just in the
few times I have visited here I have
seen why Columbia should command
the best in every line. Columbia's
people are hospitable; the town is
beautiful and most of all the business
men here are the sort of men who do
things, a type not always found in
the smaller towns. I know there is a
field for such a hotel as the Daniel
Boone Tavern and I can read suc
cess for the venture from the start.

NOTED GUESTS IX STATE SUITE
Special Furnishings For These Rooms
In 'ew Tavern.
When prominent men have visited
in Columbia in the past there has al
ways been a desire to have them stay
in apartments a little above the
ordinary. Governors, prominent busi
ness and newspaper men, used to the
best in hotel accomodations in other
cities, have not received the same sort
of attention in Columbia.
From now on, when men who hold
positions similar to those held by
JIark Twain, Thomas H. Benton, "W. J.
Bryan, and the numerous otficials of
state, all of whom have visited here
in the past, come to Columbia, they
will be taken to the Daniel Boone
Tavern and while there will occupy
the state suite, on the Mezzanine floor
of the building.
Tapestried window coverings, and
old ivory wicker furniture are used in
the reception room of the state suite.
The bedroom is furnished in old
ivory, and mahogany.
