EVOLUTION OF WICHITA.
How the Kansas Town Started With Greifrenstein's Cow and Murdook's Eagle Agenoy of Wind and Whiskers in That Boom, Long Sline Subsided. When the Exultement Was Highest the Edltor Called a Halt-and of the crass. WIOnTA, Kan., June 19.-W. B. Stevens, taff correspondent of the St. Louis Globe Democrat, sends that paper the following: The man who begot the Wichita boom cams to the confluence of the Big and Little Arkansas rivers in 1871. He found 800 people here and he started a newspaper. Four years earlier Kit Carson, Gen. Har ney and Gen. Dent had signed a treaty with the Indians at the meeting of the rivers. Old Whirlwind is still loafing around El Reno, down in the territory, with the Indi ans' duplicate of that treaty reposing in a pouch under his shirt. The year after the Indians signed away their rights Bill Grief fenstein came here from the territory and traded a cow for a quarter section, 160 mores, on which the business center of the ofty is now built. There is no ancient his tory about Wichita. The Indian who signed the treaty is still begging whisky. Bill Oreiffenstein is living in a mansion, with two big fountains in front and a $5,000 barn behind it. The man who inspired the boom sits un der the outstretohed wings of an American eagle, "hysterical bird," and writes on slips of paper three feet long about the destiny of Wichita. He is sanguine in make-up and manner. He has maize-colored whiskers, long and silken. Thirty-three years ago he came to Kansas. Recently he wrote a poem on his fifty-first birthday. Yet, with all of the wear and tear of booming, with all of the kissing of Kansas sans and all of the blowing of Kansas winds, those magnificent burnsides maintain the delicacy of their sanguine tint. And the eagle still screams thp praise of Wichita. If you get on the cars at a commercial center in the morning you will land at a commercial center in the evening. This was the law of American cities which Mar shall M. Murdook formulated in 1871. It held good for the country east of the Mis souri. Why shouldn't it apply west of the Missouri? he asked. Then he followed the radius of a future day's ride by rail from Kansas City over the map of the state of Kansas. Hisfl iner stopped on the junction of the Big and LittleArkansas. He looked up and down four wide tributary val leays in which the prairie grass grew to the paddle girths. He started his paper and be ana to make people believe that Wichita Wisto be the next great city south and west of the Missouri. He convinced the 500 people he found living on the quarter Bill GIreiffenatein had bought with a cow. He infected them with his faith. Wichita be gan to grow. By the original plan the main line if the Santa Fe railroad was to come southwest from Kansas City to Wichita and then run west. It veered ofl to the north, however, and went winding around the Great Bend. The Wichita people nearly .Ispaired. But the editor looked up at the bi eagle, thrust his pen down into the ink a little more viciously and wrote more con fidently than eover. The Santa Fe, by way of compromise, dropped a little branch Sewn to Wiohita. Forthwith the logic if the location showed itself. This ,eosme for the time the greatest %attlp shipping point on the conti ent. The editor looked out upon Douglass avenue and saw three bands of mg playing in front of as many gambling houses. These were Wichita's wild and woolly days. The glory of the cattle trade waxed and waned as suddenly. Occasion ally the editor rested his pen and went off east. He showed his maps and he talked Wichita to cavitalists and transportation magnates. Railroad after railroad headed for the junction of the two rivers. One day the editor proclaimed that more grain was unloaded from farm wagons into cars at Wichita than at any other shipping place in the world. He challenged comparison. His figures sustained him. He wrote on. The 500 people of 1871 grew to 5,000 and doubled on that. All who came caught the boom fever. The fame and the infeo tion spread. Wichita put on city airs. The editor began to coin such things as "Wichita, the wonder of the went," "the peerless princess of the prairies," "the magical mascot of the meridian," and the like. The rest of the country laughed, then talked, then inquired. The population doubled again. The editor's sanctum is high up in a building midway on the prin cipal thoroughfare. There juts out of the center a big bay window. The editor's chpir and table are close to this window. As the editor wrote he saw the city expand under the inspiration of his booming gen ius. One day he took up his pen, dipped it I the ink, hesitated, and laid it down. He looked out upon the avenue seventy-five feet wide. Seven hundred men stood on tile corners buying and selling town lots. In the jostling crowd were miners from the Book mountains and satings banks presi dents from Massachusetts. From all the country between Portland, Ore., and Port land, Me., the Witicha boom had drawn in vestors. In the crowds the editor could pick out men whom he had known for years as merchants, as farmers, as railroad of ficials, as professional men in and about Wichita. All had turned realestate speou- lators. 'the editor raised his eyes from the throng. Three miles to the east he saw mansions and villas dotting the gentle slopes of College Hill and of Fairmount. They had sprung up like mushrooms in a night. Northward the street cars traveled over the outspread plain until they looked like toys. Two miles westward the founda tions of hundred-thousand dollar mansions were rising. Here and there great brick blocks, a mile and more from the business center, loomed up from corn fields. The editor looked at his morning paper and saw by the local page that on the previous even ing the city council had extended the city limits to take in 288 additions. Th. editor turned his back on the scene and with a mighty resolve began to till one of those long strips of paper. At the top, in big, bold lettels, he wrote: "CALL A n.LT." Then he diagnosed the disease. In plain, emphati words lihe drew the distinction sharply between healthy growth and de linum. "A word to the wise ought to be sufficient," he said, "but if a word is not enough we are ready with columns night and day which will have a tendency to con vert fancy foolishness back into cornfields." Then he pictured the disaster which was inevitable, antd which would be greater the longer it might be delayed, and finally he piresented the prescription. It was thin: The wise, sensible, solid business men of this city can beat this game which threat ens so much trouble simply by.uumtedly and unanimously discou:aging the addition nonsense and by impressing everybody with the present foolishness and ultimate danger. Make no bones of telling ev',ry new comer that money put in these far away additions is money thrown away. Now, if such ventures as have been foisted upon this community within the last few weeks, if these last addition crazes Ehould plovy tflnanially sloccoussfal, not only dozens, but hundreds of other wildcat additions will be laid off and sold under thie pressure of the city's prosplerity, until the accumulated load will crush us beyond hope of resurrection. 'Ihat was the end of the craze. Two hours after the halt was called the Wichita boom was dead. ''he suddenness of the eollapse was like a mighty shlck. A great sale of snburbIan lots was in pioguess; it went on the day before; it was announced to continue that day; it was never resumed. Men walked the avenue, looked up at the big bay window where the editor sat writ ing, and shook their d oate. me os ursed; somc reproaohed, One man said to the editor, "If yoad held hbek that articole twenty-four hours I would have made $300, For Teaebens' Meoting at Toronto, Ont.
