Fort Wayne— Retroscope and Protoscope 

Fort Wayne — namesake of the hero of the Battle of Fallen Timbers — - 
is the metropolis of Northwestern Indiana and provides the municipal wants 
of a well-settled territory more than 100 miles in diameter. The span of 
Its civic life is more than a century — linking the present generation with 
that of General Mad Anthony Wayne — the great warrior of a white race 
contending not only for the supremacy of the white man's civilization over 
the profligate, unproductive tenancy of the age-old red race, but also for 
the liberty of a Republic. For the message of the Battle of Fallen Timbers 
was one that proclaimed the region of the Maumee's source and Michigan's 
peninsula American territory, instead of a British dependency. The founder 
of the City of Fort Wayne gave to the people the title of Citizen and 
not Subject. The decisive battle was fought in 17 94 and soon thereafter the 
stockade was built at the juncture of the St. Mary's river and the St. 
Joseph, running in opposite directions and uniting to form the Maumee, 
a stream that empties at Toledo into Lake Erie. 

Fort Wayne is the capital of Allen County — named for one of Wayne's 
brave Kentuckians, commander of a regiment. The county is the largest 
in the State, and, while Fort Wayne is the third city in point of population 
by the census of 1910, it is second in postoflSce receipts and wage averages. 
That is to say, a very large part of Fort Wayne's population is highly paid 
wage workers — the best bunch of spenders on earth. This means, of course, 
large and jirosperous retail stores, important jobbing interests and several 
hundred factories. It further means a host of active, busy, salaried men, 
middlemen, professional men etc., all uniting to make a city of no mean size 
or influence. 

Fort Wayne's products are sold in every State of the Union and 
several thousand carloads annually find their way to foreign countries. 
Fort Wayne is the seat of great electric works, knitting mills, washing 
and road building machinery, gas making machinery, oil tanks, rolling 
mills, flouring interests, foundries, wearing apparel factories, soap factories, 
woodworking enterprises, etc. The total number of manufacturing i)lants 
is nearly 300, with an annual payroll of approximately ten million dollars. 
Commercially, therefore, Fort Wayne is in the front rank of the growing 
cities of the Middle West. In all that makes for strenuous and prosperous 
business conditions, this city is well equipped. 

Fort Wayne is on the main line of the Pennsylvania, Wabash, Nickel 
Plate and Grand Rapids railroads and three other steam lines find terminals 
here. Four interurban roads daily deliver several thousand shoppers into 
the heart of the city. There are two other interurbans soon to be built. 
Fort Wayne is therefore a railroad center for immense passenger and freight 
traffic. The prospective factory can nowhere find a better location for 
shipping facilities. In the not distant future there will be a great barge 
canal floating unbroken cargoes, loaded at New York, destined for Chicago 
or St. Louis, or, at Chicago or St. Louis, destined for New York. The 
capacity of the trunk lines of railroads is reaching the limit. The heavy 
freight of the west must find its way to the seaboard by a water route 
connecting Lake Erie and Lake Michigan through Fort Wayne. Nature 
hps provided the water in Northern Indiana's five rivers and hundreds 
of lakes, and the glacial streams of a million years ago carved a valley 
and left a triturated soil easy of excavation for this great work of modern 
times. The vision is not a dream — it is one of the unborn realities shaping 
in the Bosom of Time under the Paternity of a Great Country's Necessity. 

Fort Wayne's religious organizations took a religious census a few 
years ago and those who did the field work reported that not a man or 
woman in all the scores of thousands interviewed confessed himself or 
herself an Atheist. Fort Wayne is a city of churches with a large number 
of Lutheran, Catholic, Methodist, Presbyterian, Episcopal, Jewish and other 
parishes and congregations. It is the seat of the Catholic diocese, the 
home of the Bishop, and it is one of the largest constituencies of the 
Missouri Synod (Lutheran). The churches raise many thousands of dollars 
annually for benevolent and missionary purposes. The Lutheran Church 
maintains a school for boys, Concordia College, with several hundred stu- 
dents, for whom the United States Government provides a military 
instructor. 

Fort Wayne has for many years been adding annually several miles 
of paved streets and cement sidewalks. It is engaged in a movement that 
will eventually give every street a brick or asphalt surface and every side- 
walk will be cement. It has many miles of fine shade trees lining the streets. 
It has more than one hundred acres of parks and nine miles of river front. 
The city has established a tax for river front improvement purposes, and 
during 1911 will have a fund of $15,000 to spend for boulevarding and 
parking the river frontage. It has laid out jilans for civic improvement 
that will greatly beautify the city in the next decade. 

Of the public buildings in Fort Wayne the Court House is easily first. 
It is built of Bedford stone, marble lined, with stairways of striking archi- 
tectural beauty. The dome is a masterpiece of graceful silhouette. The 
Court House would be creditable as the Capitol of any State. The school 
houses of Fort Wayne are being rebuilt along lines of social settlement 



thought — nmkinii them the social centers of their community. The hotels- 
are now firoproof. tl'eaters are in keepins with a metroiiolis, and the stores 
and wholesale houses are in step with the city's growth. The local traction 
company has a million-dollar turbine engine jiower house. The Country 
Club, the Elks' Hall, the Turn- Verein, the Commercial Club and other 
social organizations jirovide beautiful and attractive resorts. The Scottish 
Rite Cathedral is a marvel of architertural art, being the finest building 
in the country devoted exclusively to Scottish Rite Masonry. There are 
1,400 members in its jurisdiction. 

Fort Wayne owns its water works, pumping pure water from rock 
wells, and owns also an electric li.ght plant costing $300,000. It is gov- 
erned by the municipal code of Indiana, which seeks to center responsibility 
in the Mayor. The city is progressive, enterprising and jirosperous, with 
a high rating for peace and good order. Its labor conditions are always 
satisfactory because of the sympathy and responsiveness of employer and 
employed. Labor is well organized, but is wisely led. The capitalists of 
Fort Wayne are first of all men — American men — believing in the measures: 
that promote the common welfare. 

Fort Wayne is the ideal of those who dwell in cities. Come cast your 
lot with us.

FORT WAYNE'S SUPERIOR ADVANTAGES IN FREIGHT RATES. 



From the standpoint of railroad rates and transportation Fort Wayne- 
is one of the most favored cities of the country. Fort Wayne is able to- 
reach all of the New England States, New York, Pennsylvania, Maryland, 
Virginia and Ohio at lower rates than either Chcago, 111., or Grand Rapids,. 
Mich. The two cities named are selected for purposes of comparison for 
the reason, first, that Chicago, in addition to being one of the greatest 
manufacturing centers of the country, is the rate-basing point of the entire 
I'nited States; second, that Grand Rapids, a city of approximately twice 
the size of Fort Wayne, is in large part maintained by her manufactories. 
The appended tables will show that Fort Wayne possesses in all cases equal 
and in some cases superior advantages to either city in the matter of rates:

To New Orleans and the Southern and Southeastern territory Fort 
Wayne enjoys equal rates with Chicago and lower rates than Grand Rapids. 
To the entire Pacific coast Fort Wayne has the same rates that both Chicago- 
and Grand Rapids have. 

These same distinct rate advantages are had by Fort Wayne from all' 
this vast territory, a factor of first importance, affording, as it does, a 
lower rate in the securing of raw material as well as a lower rate in the- 
distribution of finished products. 

These rate advantages compel attention to Fort Wayne as a manu- 
facturing and distributing center, while Fort Wayne's superior transporta- 
tion facilities add greatly to the attractiveness. No city in the State of In- 
diana can present such advantages in freight rates. 

If further information is desired it will be furnished by the Secretary 
of the Commercial Club of Fort Wayne.
