Correspondence of tbo Louisville Times
Kansas Oity5 Sept 8 I Jiave
Deen tor several days taking 111
the sights of this new Chicago and
drinking in to my fullest capacity
the enthusiastic talk of those who
live here and participate in the
boom To say that I am surpris
ed at what I see and hear is to
put things very mildly for though
I have been in most of the large
towns in our country yet I find
this one of the mest remarkable
One who has never seen Kansas
City can form no idea of it and
will feel as much surprised as I
did when he comes to inspect it
It is unlike any other place
As you come into the place on
the train winding around the
steep red clay bluffs which tower
so far above your head that you
can not see the top of them out of
the car window you can have
no conception of the wonderful
city that lied behind them nor the
wonderful energy which has made
it what it is You see only some
bald bluffs with great gullies
washed down their faces bv the
rain It doesnt strike you that
anybody would ever take the
trouble to go on top of them and
you think that if some one did go
there he would never get down
again without wings or at least a
rope ladder I had been through
here before and and never known
that up on these cliffs there was a
city teeming with life and all
a hum with energy The idea had
never entered my head because I
would have thought such a thing
impossible I supposed that the
city was in the bottoms west of
the union depot
But it doesnt take long to make
a fellow open his eyes here and
you are barely out of the cars be
fore you begin to see things that
surprise you Right above your
head about fifty feet you see a lot
of street cars standing in the air
as it were while passengers climb
up a spiral staircase of iron to get
to them Stretching far away up
the hill like a modern Jacobs
ladder is an iron tressle with cars
ascending and descending This
is one of the many cable lines of
Kansas City and you know there
must be something over the cliffs
to make these cars come and go
with such frequency A little
farther north around the bend of
the cliff is a great opening in the
side of the hill like the mouth of
a hugh sewer This is the tunnel
through which another cable line
will soon be pouring its stream of
street cars Over to the west
about a hundred feet from the
cable station and connected with
it by an aerial passway is the
elevated railway station where
stands a train of cars ready to
take you over the roofs of houses
through the lower part of the city
across the Kaw river and four or
five miles farther into Kansas
through the Wyandotte and out to
Chelsea Park When you see
these surface indications it begins
to strike you that there is some
where around here a big thing on
wheels of some sort And that
big thing is Kansas City
But it will take you some time
to understand just how big a thing
Kansas City is If you have never
been here before you are dazed at
first and dont quite understand
just how things are When you
see these cable roads and the ele
vated railway and the smooth
broad street which winds around
and up to the top of the bluff you
would not be surprised to step
into a hotel like the Palmer House
or the Grand Pacific at Chicago
You actually go into a hotel at
least I did which presents as
many strange contrasts as the
town itself You go up stairs in
an elevator that reminds you of
the freight elevator in a ware
house and goes just as 6lowly
You can come down if you wish
over an uncarpeled an unpainted
wood worn smooth and kept
white by frequent scrubbings A
head waiter in immaculate dress
suit meets you at the dining room
door with a graceful bow and with
exquisite grace precedes you over
the floor ot common pine plank to
your allotted seat at the table
The ceiling of the room is low and
the frescoing a dingy daub The
walls are sadly in need of paper
ing Your bill of fare is good
enough for any hotel the cooking
excellent the service good as
could be desired the waiters quick
attentive and polite Down stairs
the clerks are always watchful
look like they were glad to see
you have plenty of time to an
swer all you questions and al
together are amible and friendly
and treat you as if you were as
good as they are There is power
ful little style about things but a
very preat desire to please You
will ind everything comfortable
about the house except the beds
and mosquitoes The bedsteads
are too short and the matresses
like the town have a tendency
towards hills and hollows The
mosquitoes have a despisable
habit of not talking enough They
suck your blood first and then set
up a little melancholy wail about
it as if their consciences hurt
them for having to bleed you I
prefer a mosquito who tells me
what his intentions are belore he
probes me Some people tell me
that the real estate agents here
are like the mosquitoes but Ill
know more about that maybe in
a few months from this time
All about you see contrasts liko
you find in the hotel Just across
the street yonder is an elegant
church built on the edge of a big
hole in the ground with a thicket
of sun flowers growing all around
-it except at the front door May
be next week at the close of the
Wednesday nights prayer-meeting
they will set some jack screws
under it and hoist it in the air
and put a basement story with a
lot of patent fire proof vaults on
the bottom ot it fill in the
hole and ram it down and have
the church settled comfortably on
a well sodded terrace in time for
the next Sunday mornings ser
vices They would just as lieve
do it as not and would forget in
a weeks time that the church
There are about ten thousand
people I judge digging down
hills and filling up holes here
every day They can terrace a
pond or build two or three bot
tom stories to a house before you
can say Jack Robinson I saw a
house the other day that had been
raised several times and the chim
neys now were about on a level
with the street They were com
mencing a large building just by
the side of it and a workman
could stand on the foundation
stones and spit down the chimney
of the smaller house while din
ner was cooking In another part
of the town there is a house which
sits high up above its neighbors
like a mouse on a square of Dutch
cheese There had been a hill
there and everybody else had cut
his lot down to the level of the
street But this man wanted a
good view I suppose so his house
still sits there on a four cornered
pillar of clay about thirty feet
high On the side of it was a
sign Lots for sale As a part
of the house projected about a
foot into the air where the rain
had washed the edge of the lot
away I didnt think the ownerliad
much ground to spare -but maybe
he meant the side of his lot by
the square foot for bill sticking
purposes He could sell four
thirty foot lots that way and still
keep his homestead How he got
up and down to his house was a
mystery to me unless he had a
side gate to his well and then was
drawn up by the windlass
Lots for sale is the regula
sign here Out on the edge of
the town you could easily imagine
yourselfin a neglected National
Cemetery Among the weeds
and sunflowers at intervals in a
few feet you can see what look
like white headboards with the
incription on them Lots for sale
apply to Snatchem Snip real
estate agents But you must not
suppose that Snatchem Snip
are dead by any means They
are thoroughly alive and you
need to be alive too when you
are dealing with them for they
mean business from the word go
They will sell you an option on a
corner lot in heaven and give the
certificate of three preachers of
each denomination to the gen
uineness of the title before one of
your old fashioned parsons could
read out his text
And Speaking of sunflowers
this is pre eminently a sunflower
city What the tuberose is to
South Frankfort the sunflower is
to Kansas City On the sides of
the red clay bluffs and in the
crevices of rock quarries they
grow abandantly and a vacant
lot if at all level is a perfect tan
gle of them Here and there one
struggles up through the cracks
of the plank sidewalk By the
stone steps of an elegant residence
these flowers will creep up and
fight for supremacy with great
rich looking bunches of buffalo
grass The whole face of the
land is covered with them and
maidens wear them in clusters as
corsage bouquets The town
itself is a big sun flower and has
millions of young ones growing
on its broad bosom A writer in
one of the newspapers yesterday
insists that the citizens should cut
down the weeds and sunflowers
before the coming of G rover and
Frankie and intimates that it is
difficult to see the tops of the
houses over the branches of the
sunflower trees They may raise
all the houses if necessary but I
think they had better let the sun
flowers alone Frankie will like
them for their romantic beauty
and a duller man than Grover
could not fail to see the magnifi
cient energy and the unbounded
faith iu its own future which Kan
sas City has behind this apparent
lack of enterprise She is too
busy with great affairs to stop
now and meddle with sunflowers
Kansas City has her own way
of doing things and is not so par
ticular about the trimmings of her
dress as she is about the material
She has her working day apron
on and her sleeves rolled up and
her hands are in the dough but
there is a big diamond all
a sparkle on the buxom lassies
bosom and a well filled pocuet
book hidden away in the ample
iolds of her capacious bustle
She is in a hurry now and when
the dinner is cooked and the
boarders all fed it will be time
enough to wash the dishes and
sweep up the trash on the din-
liing room floor
I never saw a place where there
was as much work going on You
cant get out of hearing a hammer
nor out of sight of a pile of brick
or an excavation All around the
outskirts of the town there are
great camps where in white tents
and covered wagons men live
with their families They are
here to day and maybe a mile or
two away to morrow but where
ever their work is they must be
close to it so they have no time
for hunting boarding houses and
trudging to and lrom them
They are laying off and grading
streets digging down great hills
and filling up ponds and sink
holes As you pass by these
places you will see teams of
horses with scrapers going at a
trot men working briskly all
around you every fellow earnest
and anxious apparently to finish
his allotted task no one inter
fering with another but all mov
ing in concert like clock work
and with the precision ot a mil
itary drill Over in Wyandotte
across tna river and away be-
had ever squatted down in a hole I yond it out toward Chelsea Park
you see the same thing There
aro armies of these laborers
with their temporary dwellings
and the headquarter tents for the
bosses and commissary tents and
all the paraphernalia of camp life
Women are cooking at stoves in
the open air children are sprawl
ing about on the ground boys are
bringing water and all look con
tented and brisk and good-humored
In some camps a flagstaff
floats the stars and stripes from
its summit And along by these
camps you will see huge sign
boards like those used at railroad
crossings in Keutucky with
Twelfth Street Thirteenth
street etc on them in big let
ters You dont see any houses
but the work goes on and the
people have faith that when the
street is made the houses will
come like the Aldermans gondo
las by the operation of Nature
unassisted
Wyandotte is the Brooklyn of
Kansas City and lies just across
the Kan River in Kansas Be
tween the bluffs of the city proper
and Wyandotte is the West
bottom lying alongside the Mis
souri river Down there is the
union depotthe great stock 3artls
the freight depots a wilderness of
railroad tracks and a teeming
hive of manufacturies AH the
great packing houses are there
along the river front and dwell
ings of laboring men and boar ling
houses and saloons fill up all
available space Looking down
on this part of the town from the
elevated railway train it seems
perfectly jammed with houses
and you can but wonder where
the next building will be put
Providence seems to be helping
the people out though for the
river changed its channel to the
other shore and is in process of
making about twenty acres of
land on this side Some enter
prising fellow I hear suspect
ed what was coming to pass
and bought the shallow nart
ot the river for a small sum
There is millions in his purchase
Then the east bottoms are yet un
occupied and they will in a year
or two be full of lactones These
large establishments must have
switchroom by the ralroads and
some access to the river This
they can not have upon the hill
There is however a belt railroad
running up a valley behind the
bluffs and going entirely around
the city Land close to this is
worth hundreds of dollars a foot
for manufacturing purposes and
most of it can not be purchased at
all now
In the main part of town there
are magnificent buildings cable
roads electric lights and on some
of the streets the bustle of Broad
way New York Ever laboring
man can get employment at good
wages carpenters and bricklayers
badly needed all the time At
the Exposition building they run
a double force day and night to
finish it by the 15th of this month
Real estate is the great subject of
thought and talk The prices are
surprising to a man irom Ken
tucky but if you dont buy to day
maybe they will advance 10 a
foot on you to morrow Much of
the land of course is held at fancy
prices and a great deal of it is
sold at but little advance over its
intrinsic value It seems to me
that as long as things go on with
the rush they now have real es
tate will advance Some day the
end will come values will settle
down to their intrinsic basis and
somebody will be caught in a
deadfall But desirable town lots
will alwavs bear a fair price and
in favored localities will always
increase favorably in value Peo
ple are very notiony however in
their tastes Lots on a cable line
fronting the street where all the
dust will be blown in will bring
150 a foot while another lot just
150 feet back of these and fronting
on a side street out of the dust
but just as convenient to the cars
will only bring half as much
Corner lots and cable lines are
talismans to conjure with here
and to many men they have prov
en the genuine philosophers stone
Of course everybody iiere spec
ulates in real estate just as they
buy lottery tickets in New Orleans
My landlady for I have left the
hotel for a private boarding house
tells me that when she first
came here she invested 75 in a
little lot It was all the money
she could save and scrape together
and in a couple of months it had
made her about 200 You can
use a comparatively small amount
of money to advantage by buying
options It is like buying stocks
on a margin in Wall street You
ptit up your money and if prices
fall you lose it all If they go up
you win the difference at the time
you let go And there has nover
yet been a fall in prices Nobody
expects you to pay more than one
third cash but you must give a
taust deed for the balance which
enables them to sell you out at
once il you fail to come to time
on the defferred payments So on
a falling market you lose all unless
you have good backing and can
raise the rest of the money
But I can not tell all about
Kansas City in one letter It is a
big subject and needs careful
treatment if one wishes to be just
It is the best place I ever saw for
a laboring man and mechanic and
about tne worst place I ever saw
for a clerk The capitalist with
plenty of money is sura to make
more here The man with only a
small sum has a chance for big
winnings and he must risk his all
on the turn of it card Falcos
