It is proposed to bond Ford county in
the sum of $80,000, to aid in the con

from Dodge City to Englewood. The
proposition will be submitted to the
people in the due course of time. The
people of Ford county will never vote
The west end of town is building up
rapidly, in the vicinity of A. J. An
thony's and R. W. Tarbox's residences.
P. R. Hobble is putting up a residence.
Roy Drake and R. W. Evans are pre
paring to build. J. R. Webster re al
so building. Three houses are being
erected on Olive's addition, near M.
Collar's house. A house is being built
northwest of the county poor house.
The west end of town is looming up.
Dodge City continues to grow and
prosper with the limits of her resources
circumscribed. The scope of country
from which trade is received is yearly
narrowed, but business continues to im
prove, with perhaps smaller margins
and larger sales. The cattle interests
are not as large, and the granger busi
ness hardly compensates for the differ
ence. In the course of a j'ear or two
the "granger" trade will be much more
desirable and profitable.
A daughter of Wm. C. Myers, who
resides ten miles northwest of town,
died on Saturday after a short illness.
The girl was ten years of age. She had
fallen over a wheelbarrow and it is sup
posed had received some internal injur
ies, for soon after the accident she was
taken sick and died. Mr. Myers some
months ago removed with his family
from Iowa to Dodge City, and remained
here a short time when he took up his
residence on ms lanu nortnwest or tne
city. He has our sympathy in the loss
ot his child.
There is some complaint about the
continous heat of the summer. We
called at the Signal office on Saturday,
and the gentlemanly officers gave us
some information on the subject of the
Summer's heat for the month of July
since the signal office was established.
We give as follows the average thermal
indications for July since 1875:
1875 To.odes. 1RS0 70.4 dcg.

it win De oDscrvca tnat tlic average
heat of July 1885 was below the av
age neat oi .j uiy in some otuer years
and below the average of the eleven
years of which record has been made.
While county seats and metropolitan
airs are disturbing many people and
speculators in the new counties, Fowler
City is an exception. The Fowler
Graphic states the case tersly and
graphically, as follows:
There is nothing the matter with lo
eating at Fowler. The town is moving
along at a lively pace, side by side with
the improvements of the surroundin
11 r r ,
vaney. ve arc peaceiui among our
selves, and in harmony with all the
world. The town company have not
impoverished themselves, booming the
town, and still give away lots to those
who will improve them. They also
have residence and business lots at
prices, that make investment, safe be
yond a doubt. There is no flaw in a
title from the company. They are clear
as the mid-day sun.
Thomas Gerrard died of malarial
fever, in this city, at noon on Thursday.
Mr. Gerrard came to this country from
England a few months ago. He is a
1.1 O TIT ."! 1
orotner oi wm. jerraru, an engineer
on the Santa Fc Railroad. The de
ceased was about 30 years of age, and
leaves a wife and three children in Eng
land. The friends of the family have
the sympathy of the community.
Mr. Gerrard died at the residence of
his brother, Wm. Gerrard, and had the
constant care and attention of both Mr.
and Mrs. Gerrard, who kindly adminis
tered to all of liis wants during his ill
ness of twenty-one days. The employ
ees of the round house raised quite a
sum of money which Avill be presented
to the family of the deceased in Eng
land. Mr. and Mrs. William Gemml desire
to extend their sincere thanks to the
railroad men and citizens of Dodge Cit'
for their kindness and attention during
their late affliction.
The Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fo
Railroad propose to build a line from
Hutchinson to Kinsley, thus shortening
the road 28 miles. This will bo quite
an item for through trains, the time be
ing shortened over an hour. Under its
charter the Santa Fe road cannot aban
don the present road as the main line.
The proposed road, however would be
used for heavy' freights and special
trains. Arrangements for the building
ot this road are already being made at
Hutchinson by agents of the Sauta Fe
We are also informed, but we de not
know the authority, that the Santa Fe
railroad compaii- will abandon the con
tinuance of the railroad from Kingman
to Dodge City, and run the proposed
branch to Saratoga, in Pratt county, and
finally extend the road to a southwest
point from Saratoga. This scheme looks
plausible. The plan is to catch the
bubiuess of cattle shipping and inter
cept the proposed extension of the Kan
sas Southern Railroad. Better author
ity contradicts the statement that the
Kingman branch will be ,4led off." It
will come right on to Dodge City.

At the first monthly meeting of the
directors of the Dodge City Building
and Loan association the following com
mittees were appointed: Finance com
mittee: G. M. Hoover, F. C. Zimmer
mann and II. C. Cherington; building
committee: R P. Adams, Clarence Petty
and A Gluek; real estate committee:
Dr. T. L. McCarty, Morris Collar and

A town Bite has been laid out and
postofice established on the proposed
Kingman line of railroad, 25 miles south
east of Dodge. The town is named
Fonda, in honor of Gen. John F. Fonda,
of Warsaw, 111., and one of the found
ers of the place. A large settlement is
located surrounding the town of Fonda.
A number of houses have been built,
and the town of Fonda will take a boom
under the management of its founders.
This new town is located in the south
east part of Ford County, and natarally
we feel solicitious for its welfare.
There is no finer country anywhere than
that which surrounds the town of Fon
da, and a good and thrifty class of peo
ple have taken possession of the lands.
This is an embroyo town laid out on
the Colorado and Kansas line, 125
miles west of Dodge City. It has two
buildings already erected, one a saloon
and the other a restaurant. Town lots
are selling at $100 and $150, and it is
expected the town will take a boom this
fall and next year. Twenty lots have
been sold, several of the lots to Dodge
City parties. M. S. Culver and H. P.
Myton are the owners and projectors
of the new enterprise. Mr. Culver in
forms us that the town will enjoy the
business derived from the annual Texas
cattle drive. We saw him on Sunday
and he has big hopes for the place.
The School Election.
The election for Clerk of the School
Board, Dodge City, took place Thurs
day afternoon last. Morris Collar re
ceived G2 votes and A. T. Burke 12
votes. Mr. Collar was clerk of the
Board for a number of years and per-"
formed the duties diligently and satis
factorily. He is well informed on the
duties of the office. At the meeting it
vras proposed to sell the old school house
site on First Avenue and select a new
site cast of Railroad Avenue. The
Board were authorized to select a site.
The cost for the new building has not
yet been named. Bonds for this pur
pose will be voted for at a special elec
tion. We would suggest that a build
ing not to exceed $10,000 be construct
ed. The enrollment of school children
in our public school numbers nearly
GOO and more school room is required.
Dodge City is growing, and a large and
magnificent school house is necessary.
A committee, composed of F. C. Zim
merman, D, M. Frost, J. H. Kelley, A.

to arrange plans and estimate cost of

An Accidental Killing.
An unfortunate shooting, resulting
in immediate death, occurred in the
store of York-Parker-Draper Mercan
tile Company, at about G o'clock, Wed
nesday evening of last week. The vic
tim of this unfortunate affair was John
F. Woodruff, a freighter. A gun be
longing to Woodruff was offered for
sale, and was examined by different per
sons in the store, each person supposed
the gun unloaded as all appearances in
dicated. The gun was accidentally dis
charged in the hands of George Martin,
one of the clerks in the store, the con
tents entering Woodruff's head above
the eyes and tearing off the skull and
brains. Of course, instant death was
the result. John M. Wiight, chief
clerk in the store, made a narrow es
cape from the accidental ."hot, having
passed before the gun just at the instant
it was discharged. I he shooting caus
ed profound sorrow. The deceased is a
step-son of S. O. Auberry, who is now
at Tascosa, Texas, and who runs freight
teams between Dodge City and Tascosa.
Woodruff had charge of the teams, and
had recently returned from Tascosa.
George Martin, in whose hands the gun
was discharged, resides with his father's
family in the city, and is a WGll-behaved
and respectable j'oung man. He is ex
onerated from all blame. The deceas
ed was about 24 years of age.
