To the people of Jefferson City and State of Missouri: 

In presenting this, our first volume of a series of Missouri 
County Sketch Books and Directories, we feel that the value and useful- 
ness of our new field of work has in this book been fully demon- 
strated. We promise that no future edition shall fall below this one 
in any particular. 

To the citizens of Jefferson City we here express our grateful 
thanks for their hearty co-operation, liberal patronage and generous 
support, which has enabled us to produce this valuable book. In this 
connection, however, we think it but right to claim that this volume 
will do more to advertise the great advantages and beauties of Jeffer- 
son City than any other agency employed before or since the memorable 
battle against the removal of the Permanent Seat of Government. 

Our aim has been to reflect on the pages of this book the County 
and Capital City as they are today, that we have fallen short in many 
particulars and omitted much that should have a place in the volume 
is true, but to the advertiser we have given full value in every 
respect. We have associated their advertisements permanently with a class 
of matter which secures its frequent reading and at the same time gives 
promine-nce to the firms represented. To advertisers who may be our 
patrons in other counties and to those whose business is not confined 
within the limits of one county, we will cheerfully give any informa- 
tion desired in associating their names and business with the prom- 
inent and substantial interests of the counties for which we produce 
a Sketch Book and Directory. Our next edition will be an Illustrated 
Sketch Book and Directory of SEDALIA AND PETTIS COUNTY, which will 
include a complete directory of ; every city, town and village within the 
bounds of that rich and prosperous commonwealth. Although Jefferson 
City and Sedalia were rivols for the location of the Permanent Seat of 
Government, the fight is over;, .and their common purpose now is to place 
Missouri, which is the fifth in rank, at the head of the list of American 
States. We thank the press most cordially for their very courteous

Cole County Illustrated Sketch Book and 



This popular work is intended to stimulate the vouth of our country to more successful 
effort in fighting the battle of life; to develop the highest ideas of true manhood, and 
to imbue the mind with those sterling qualities so essential in building up a noble, 
energetic character. In the battle of life there is always room and demand for the well- 
equipped young man in every department ot human activity, but there is no room for 
the incompetent or the irresponsible. 


Judge C. G. Burton, Nevada: "It is really what its name implies; gives proper trend to thought and direction for conduct. 
Exceedingly valuable to all who read it, especially so to the young man or woman just- entering upon and into life's prac- 
tical duties and responsibilities." 

John C. Fetzer, Chicago, agent estate of C. H. McCormick: "I think no greater benefaction could be done than to place 
a bound copy in the library of every high school in the country, that the rising generations of young men may read and reread." 

Rev. C. McPherson. Waxahachie, Texas: "The young man who reads this book will learn the truth, that it is strong, 
industrious, brave, earnest, faithful, real men for whom the world is always seeking." 

Rev. A. B. Phillips, pastor Christian church, Fulton, Mo.: "The book is brimful of common sense and abounds in whole- 
some advice that every young man can read with profit and pleasure 
A prominent merchant of Louis 

iana: "1 have read the book with 
great pleasure and profit. Send 
me fifty copies as I wish one for 
each of my fifty employes, of 
whom I shall retain only those 
who become familiar with its con- 

Mrs. L. P. Miller. Secretary Mon- 
arch Book Company, Chicago: 
"The chapter on "Law of Life and 
Remuneration' is worth many 
times the price of the book." 

Dr. N. Green, Lebanon, Tenn., 
the most prominent educator in the 
South: "Its sentiments are worthy 
to be engraved on the foreheads 
and in the palms of every young 

The Western Economist, Des 
Moines, la.: "It should be in the 
inside pocket of every man, and 
can be read with profit once a 

Rev. Cadesman Pope, Pres. Ark- 
adelphia Methodist College, Ark- 
adelphia. Ark.: "There is not a 
dull chapter in the book nor a 
foolish sentence on its pages." 

Rev. W. J. Patrick, a prominent 
Baptist minister, Bowling Green. 
Mo.: "Coming from a business 
man and illustrated by facts drawn 
from active life, it will reach 
many unreached by more elabor- 
ate works." 

A. D. Brown, President Hamil- 
ton-Brown Shoe Company, St. 
Louis: "I consider it worth a for- 
tune to any young man to read the 
'Guide Post' and travel in the di- 
rection it points." 

Phil E. Chappell. Kansas City 
banker: "The sentiments express- 
ed are wise and full of good, com- 
mon, business sense, and it should 
be read by every young man who 
desires to make a success of 'life." 

Rev. T. W. Lewis, pastor M. E. church, Grenada, Miss.: "Its lessons so thoroughly accord with my ideas I wish I could 
thunder them into the ears of every young inan in the land." 

"If America will read it, the tramp will disappear like the buffalo. It is fatal to idleness: its trend is happiness, and it 
ought to be in every home. "JOHN T. HARDING. Nevada, Mo." 

A. Sherwin Cody of the Chicago Record. Novelist, Poet and Scholar, says of it: 

"The Guide Post to Success" reads more like an ancient classic than the production of a modern business man; like the 
Bible, it deals with the essential things of life, and like the Bible also, it is expressed in simple, homely, direct English, as if it 
were written for all time and all places. When we can get the life experience of a thoughtful, earnest, successful man 
bodied forth in absolutely natural language, we have literature that can justly be called great. There is nothing in it that 
does not have weigiit, and in a certain sense originality; and there is nothing in it that should not interest every human 
creature. Mr. Johnston, its author, has produced one short work of genuine greatness which probably sprang spontane- 
ously from a warm heart and a rich experience." 

Lester S. Parker, prominent shoe manufacturer, Jefferson City, Mo.: "No one can read 'The Guide Post to Success" 
without finding himself already well advanced along that highway, for success comes only after clear-cut plans, with 
activity and enthusiasm and everlasting force behind them. This book is truly a storehouse of both." 

Hon. John L Peak, Kaavis Ciiy. 
ex-Minister to Switzerland: " 'The 
iJv'ide Post to Success,' by J. W. 
Johnston, should be the constant 
rrpmpanion of every youth in the 

Thomas B. Bryan. Chicago, 
Lawyer. Orator and Scholar: "It 
behooves aspirants for success to 
weigh well, and carefully heed 
,1jst such sound advice as this 
' ssayist so emphatically presents." 
Prof. J. M. Greenwood, superin- 
t<-ndent public schools, Kansas 
I 'ity: "Every boy should carry it 

II his coat pocket and read from 
M every time he feels the least bit 
I liscouraged." 

David B. Page of Browning. 
Iving & Co.: "No one can read 
(his book without profit. But to 
him who reads it aright it will 
prove a most valuable aid to the 

M-hievement of business success, 
ihrough the channel of honorable 
methods and personal integrity." 
The Baptist Rev'ew, T^ittle Rock: 

■The general reading of the 'Guide 
Post to Success' by the young peo- 
ple would be an incalculable bless- 
ing to the nation." 
A. J. Brown. State Agent of 

"exos for the Fidelity Mutual Life 

• t' Philadelphia: "If read and 
heeded will prove the most valu- 

ihle hook ever given mankind." 


"The Guide Post to Success,"

Is a scientific combination of Sanative Asrents, that has been used in an extensive practice about thirty 
YEARS, and probably no other medicine is so well known in Nevada and Vernon County. Its effect is 
not miraculous. It simply acts in harmony with the laws of nature. It is s.\fe. It is rell^hle, and is 
what everv family needs to protect them from m.\l.-\ri.\ and ty'phoid fever. Observe your neifrhbors 
who use this medicine, and ask them their opinion of its merits. 



Have been extensively used about twenty-five years, with unparalled success, and hundreds of families 
keep them ready for immediate use, their experience and observation convincing them that no other 
remedies can so safely be relied on. 

These medicines are sent by express to patrons in twenty States and three Territories.

A Glimpse of a Few 
of the Furnished 
Cottages of the 


South Haven, Mich. 

South Haven, tlic 
most delightful sum- 
mer resort on the Great 
Lakes, is located on the 
east shore of Lake 
Michigan, a village of 
about 4,000, cultured 
and moral people, who 
have been drawn there 
by the delightful sur- 
roundings and to enjoy 
the refreshing breezes 
which are cooled by the 
freSh water of the Great 
Lake, and invigorated 
by bathing in the spark- 
ling element. It is only 

a few hours from the city of Chicajio and is conueitcd by majj;uitieent sicamers running night and 
day, the expense of the round trip being only $1.00. "Tis here is located the famous A\'KRV 
BEACH HOTEL. The furnished cottages of the Monroe Park Cottage Co., of which they have 
about forty, are equipped with evei-y modern convenience, electric light, hot and cold water, bath 
and perfect sewerage. A stay there during the heated months, relieved of the worry of business 
(while not expensive) as the delicious fruits of the great state of Michigan are at hand at a uominal 
price, makes new men and women who return home refreshed with new life. 

For further information in regard to this famous resort, noted for it glorious beach, safe 
bathing, good boating and fishing on lake and river, its peach and general fruit orchards, its 
berries, its magnificent steamers arriving twice daily from Chicago, write to the Monroe Park 
Cottage company. L. S. Monroe, president and treasurer; L. BeCraft, secretary and manager. 
South Haven, Mich. Directors: L. S. Monroe. L. BeCraft. Sduth Haven. Mich., and L. S. Parker,

Cole County Illustrated Sketch Book and 







For nearly half a century the name "DuUe" has 
been familiarly associated with what is best in tlour. 
In 183S G. H. Dulle located in Jefferson City where 
he engaged in first in the manufacture of brick, and 
later hi the business of the dairy. In 1854, he built 
on the ground (near where now stands the best 
equipped and most substantial milling property in 
central Missouri), a small mill which was ample to 
meet the requirements of that day, but with the 
growing business it was enlarged from time to time, 
to almost its present proportions. It was, however, 
destroyed by fire, in 1890, when it was replaced by 
the present model, modern, substantial and virtu- 
ally fire-proof structure, containing the very latest 
and best in the wonderful improvements made in 
milling machinery within the last half century. 
The sterling qualities of the founder of this plant, 
Mr. G. H. Dulle, and his exceptional capacity as an 
honest, thorough and substantial business man, re- 
sulted in his being frequently called upon to serve 
the county in an official capacity, a duty which he 
always performed in a manner most credible to him- 
self and satisfactory to those who had thus honored 
him. At his death, 1885, the G. H. Dulle Milling 
Company was organized and incorporated, the offi- 
cers being Henry J. Dulle, President; Bernard 
Dulle, Vice-President, and J. W. Schulte, Secretary 
and Business Manager. Mr. J. W. Schulte, to 
whom the very great success of this mill is largely 
due, is a step-son of Mr. G. H. Dulle, and has been 
since reaching his majority, continually in the mill 
and largely the manager, a duty devolving on him in 

S jLi I 

consequence of the frequent absence of Mr. G. H. 
Dulle. when engaged in his official duties. The 
President, Mr. Henry J. Dulle, has been honored by 
the county with several positions, having recently 
retired from the office of presiding judge of the 
court. He is now President of the First National 
Bank, one of the largest and most prosperous finan- 
cial concerns in Jefferson City. The capacity of the 
Dulle Milling Company is 500 barrels of flour per 
day; the leading brands are ''Dulle Patent," "Capi- 
tal Star" and "Baker's Delight," all of which have 
an established reputation, covering several states, 
and the merit of which has been attested by a num- 
ber of prize medals, where exhibited in competition 
with the products of the leading mills of the world; 
the most recent being at the Exposition at Omaha. 
The immense product of this mill is sold throughout 
a number of states, and is shipped to several foreign 
countiies. The grain necessary to supply the de- 
mand of this mill is drawn largely from the wheat- 
growing district of central Missouri, an area which 
is recognized as the best for the production of win- 
ter wheat in the United States. It can be seen with- 
out the suggestion of a figure that in the employ- 
ment of labor and the purchase of grain, the G. H. 
Dulle Milling Company has dispensed more money, 
by far, than any other manufacturing concern in 
Central Missouri. It is certainly one of the most 
substantial elements entering into the progress ol 
Jefferson City, and Cole county. An idea of the 
Dulle ^Milling structure may be drawn from the pie 
ture above, the building in the rear being an eleva- 
tor with a capacity of 50,000 bushels.

In the United States, in no manufacturing, has there been such marked progress as in the maliins of shoes. This 
IS a line of goods in which the United States; -e;tcels the world and the products of her shoe factoriis an- sold in all 
countries, where there is a people sufficiently prosperous tobuy the best. .The work.. of. the Village slimniaker is now 
almost entirely one of repairing; in fact, with the facilities for manufacturing, buyirig'ih large" tiuantities. 'raw nra.t«rial 
and the use of greatly improved machinery, the manufacturer now sells a shoe complete for less money than the country 
shoemaker can buy in a small way the raw material. The headquarters of this great manufacturing interest has of 
late years been leaving New England, Missouri now being one of the leading manufacturing states of artistic and sub- 
stantial footwear. At an early date one manufacturer made a general line of boots and shoes for men, women and chil- 
dren, but the growing and sharp competition has forced a more thorough division of labor, which gives to the manu- 
facturer of a specialty the advantage of using skilled labor only on the class of work in which it is most proficient, 
enabling them to turn out a finer and better class of work and at lower prices than is possible by the maker of a gen- 
eral line. The H. Bockrath Shoe Company of Jefferson Citv was organized May 1st. ISStfj, incorporating with a capital 
stock of $22,000.00. The first stockholders, who were also directors, were H. Bockrath, Geo. A. Bockrath. J. \V. 
Schulte, G. H. Schulte and F. Loefher. The officers being H. Bockrath, President; J. \V. Schulte, Vice-President; Geo. 
A. Bockrath, Secretary and Treasurer, and F. Loeffler. In May, '90, they commenced the manufacure of a special line 
of ladies', misses', children's, boys', youths' and little gent's shoes, in a building 33 by 110 feet on Stuart Street, selling 
their product direct to the retail merchants. Their working force, the first year, numbered about 40 people. By the em- 
ployment of efficient and intelligent salesmen, who were able to get the attention of the best dealers, they introduced 
their goods rapidly, the substantial character and low price of which was appreciated by the merchants when compared 
with eastern makes, and as a result their trade has gradual ly increased, until now they employ a force of loO, their 
manufacturing space being enlarged to 110 by 19S feet on the ground floor, and in addition, a space on the second 
floor, 4D by 110 feet. The factory on the corner of Stuart and Water streets is equipped with the latest improved machin- 
ery and every department is under the supervision of an expert; as a result, no factory in the United States turns out 
more artistic or substantial shoes than the H. Bockrath Shoe Co., or at more favorable prices to the shoe mer- 
chant. In November. '9S, the capital stock was increased to $42,000. E. Holtschneider and D. M. Noonan becoming 
stockholders, and added to the directory. Mr. Noonan is also foreman of the packing department. The employes 
in this factory are largely from the ranks of the home people, and have become very efficient in the work. The 
Bockrath shoes are now sold and reeognixed as leading: standards in all directions within a radius of several hun- 
dred miles. The President. Mr. Bockrath, is an oW 'merchant,- who, Jefferson City from Florrissant. St. 
Louis county, seventeen years ago. and until recently retired, was one of the leading geriel^ai merchants -of the Capi- 
tal City. Geo. A. Bockrath, the Secretary and Treasurer, who looks largely after the management, is a sterling young 
business man with the executive ability necessary to manage this large and prosperous manufacturing plant, the 
most important in Jefferson City, outside the prison walls. The success of the Bockrath Shoe Company and the popu- 
larity of their artistic and substantial products are largely due to the practical management in the manufacturing de- 
partment of Mr. P. Loeffler. who is superintendent and manager of the factory.

Cole County Illustrated Sketch Book and 

Above is a view of a few of the cottages of the Monroe Park Cottage Company. For those who wish to enjoy a 
summer outing where all the surroundings are conduct\-e to the highest order of innocent sports and recreation, there 
is no more inviting resort on the American Continent than South Haven, Mich., a village of about 4,000 cultured people 
who strive tor the highest in life. No saloons, billiard halls or bowling alleys and none of the fakirs or rough element 
frequently found at popular summer resorts. In addition to the fine surf bathing within a few steps of the cottages, 
there is splendid boating, fishing and elegant drives. In the midst of the famous fruit growing section, the price of 
supplies for the table are reasonable, the expense of the average family during the summer months being but little 
more than at home, the rental of the furnished cottages which are supplied with every convenience, is low. Within 
a few hours' ride by elegant steamers (which run night and day), of Chicago. The expense of the round trip, $1.00. For 
further information write to the

St Francis Academy and 
Orphan's Home ^ ^ d^ 

This academy and orphan home is in charge of the 
Sisters of St. Francis and offers a good opportunity to 
all who can afford to spend but a moderate sum to get 
their children or wards educated. It is located on an 
eminence overlooking the city, and enjoys all the bene- 
fits nature can bestow— pure air, pure water and beau- 
tiful scenery. 

The terms are moderate, viz.: $5.00 per month for 
orphans, and $9.00 per month for those who wish to 
enter as boarders of the Academy. 

During the time the pupils are at the Academy, thf 
Sisters watch over their well-being with the greatest 
care, and endeavor to train the minds and hearts of 
their charges to the noblest aims in life. 

The course includes, in"h( 

Ihe first place, all the branch- 
es taught in the Grammar Schools. Pupils who, on 
entering the Academy, can pass a satisfactory examina- 
tion in the Grammar School studies, will find the Sisters 
competent to teach, in addition to the above, Algebra, 
Rhetoric, Etymology, General History, Natural History. 
Literature. Physics. Physical Geography, Botany, Book 
Keeping, Business Forms. German and French. 

Aside from literary pur.suits the pupil may alsn 
take lessons in Music. Painting and Needlework of all 
kinds, specialties being made of the latter two pursuits.

Of the many hostk'ries open for the entertain- 
ment of guests in the Capital City, the Central Ho- 
tel, of which Mr. J. A. Huepel is the Proprietor, is 
unquestionably at the head of the list. Mr. Huegel 
leased the property, which he now owns, on the cor- 
ner of Jefferson and High streets, January 1, 187-1. 
and continued to run the hotel as a tenant until 
1885, when he purchased the propei*ty. The busi- 
ness, under his able and jiopular nianagement, con- 
tinued to grow until 1801), when it reached a pro- 
portion demanding larger and more commodious 
quarters, which determined him to enlarge and mod- 
ernize the building, and as a result he has the most 
elegantly appointed and best arranged hotel in Cen- 
tral Missouri. The building is extended to four full 
stories and a basement, the exterior of which pre- 
sents an imposing and symetrical appearance, while 
the interior arrangement embodies in elegance and 
comfort everything necessary to gratify the most 
fastidious taste. The entire building is brilliantly 
illuminated with electric lights, a jierfect system of 
call bells, elegant bath tubs and sanitary arrange- 
ments second to no hotel in the country. The main 
floor is finished throughout in highly polished oak. 
All the rooms are nicely decorated and arranged, 
the floors being covered with lovely carpets, fresh 
from the loom of the weaver. His dining room in 
the basement is large and well arranged, while on 
his table is found at all times the best the market 
affords, prepared by experienced cooks. Of the lux- 
uries furnished his guests, are parlors on both the 
first and second floors. The appointments of the 
building throughout are most convenient and com- 
fortable, meeting the demands of the most exact- 
ing. Mr. Huegel is to be congratulated on his 
good management and prosperity, evidenced by this 
nionnnient, which is. indeed, a credit to the city.

Cole County Illustrated Sketch Book and 


Next to the press, the most important factor effecting the material and intellectual progress of a civilized people 
is the railroad. Though comparatively new, there being many now living in Cole county who were well grown before the 
first railroad was built in the United States, they have introduced themselves so rapidly and we have become so ac- 
customed to the many advantages afforded by them, we do not realize how much they contribute to our comfort and 
convenience. AA'ithout the railroad, the daily paper could not exist. It is the element which enables our postal system 
to be the grandest and most efficient organization of public utility on earth. Without them the misfortunes which 
befall communities through fire, pestilence or famine would result in great suffering; communities, which fail to pro- 
duce crops on account of unfavorable seasons, would fee! the pangs of hunger. The immense deposits of coal and min- 
eral, which underlie a large portion of the interior of the United States, would rem.ain in their natural beds, useless 
to mankind. The delicious fruits of California would decay in the orchard. The great wheat fields of the Northwest 
would cease to bloom and supply a golden harvest as there would be no return to the producer. The railroads regu- 
late supply and demand, taking the surplus of one community to those in need. They equalize prices as water find its 
level. To them we are indebted largely for the wonderful advancement in civilization and education of the last half 
of the Nineteenth century. Through them the people of the United States are all neighbors, not only having the priv- 
ilege of general social intercourse, but the advantages of the exchange of ideas in personal contact with people from 
all parts, thus affording the educational advantages of a cosmopolitan life. The railroads represent the largest busi- 
ness interests of the world. By them an army of skilled labor is employed and better salaries are paid as a whole than 
in any other industry. Their management requires the ablest financiers. The magnitude of the capital invested in 
these great vehicles of progress in this country alone being sufficient to stagger one who attempts to grapple with its 
enormity. Jefferson City has the advantages of three great railroad systems— two of which, the C. & A. and the M.. 
K. & T., have no mileage within Cole county, their depots being in North Jefferson across the river, which is now 
spanned by a magnificent steel bridge. 

.Ml-.-oi i;l l'.\i iH( rl Al loN, .IKII KK.-M.I.N i I I -. . 
The Missouri Pacific, however, has a large mileage within Cole county, the main line running its entire length from 
east to west, the Lebanon branch of that system going through the southwest part of the county. Of the Missouri Pacific 
railroad it is difficult to refer in a review without connecting the article with the late great Napoleon of finance, 
Jay Gould. There are many well posted people of the state who have some idea of the immense value the operations 
of Jay Gould were during his lifetime to the great Commonwealth of Missouri. He took hold of the Missouri Pacific 
when it was bankrupt, and developed it into one of the most important railroad systems of the entire country. Its 
value in building up not only the country through which it passes, but the two great commercial and manufacturing 
cities of Missouri— St. Louis and Kansas City— is simply beyond compute. It has brought each of these trade centers 
into close touch with the fine agricultural and live stock districts of Missouri, Kansas and Nebraska, the cotton 
fields of Arkansas and Texas, the mineral districts of southwest Missouri, and the untold wealth which is brought to 
the surface annually in that great producer of precious metals, Colorado. In addition to this great system, his genius 
had much to do with bringing to its present high standard the Wabash system both east and west of the Mississippi. 
His far seeing and fertile brain coupled with his wonderful executive ability, was the principle element in developing 
the Western Union Telegraph system to its now wonderful efficiency. Mr. Gould was superior to Napoleon in that 
he did not let the dazzling splendors of wealth and power debauch his modest and virtuous manhood. To facilitate the 
great enterprises conceived by his fertile mind he associated with him the most practical and brainiest men to be found. 
The friendship and interest taken in Jefferson City by the Missouri Pacific is evidenced by the magnificient new _ depot 
(a cut of which heads this article) which they have recently provided for the comfort and convenience of the citizens 
of, and visitors to, the capital. That this railroad has always been ready and prompt in response to requests for special 
rates and other favors necessary to facilitate and promote the selection of the capital city for public gatherings, con- 
ventions, etc., is well known, and as a result, it enjoys and deservedly, the warm friendship and support of the people 
of Jefferson City and Cole county.

Q)Ie County Illustrated Sketch Book and 


Comparatively few men, taken as a wlmle. I'eali/.e 
the importance of advertisinj; and li(i\\ minli its 
study and judicious application etl'ects their jiros- 
pci'ity. The human mind is guided and controlled 
by influences which are jirojierly lu'ouylit to bear 
just as sure as the ai>ple when detached from the 
twig of the tree is carried by the force of gravity 
to the eartli. Counter influence may effect or stop 
the downfall of some of the apples, so in the work 
of advertising in its effect on the human mind it may 
be turned aside by counter influences. The value 
of an advertisement depends mucli on the tact, skill 
and force of its presentation. The most effective 
way is by personal work, presenting intelligently 
a title to ]>atronag'e in person, using that means 
which the Creator in his wisdom gave to us to con- 
vey our thoughts and wishes to eaeh other — the 
hiiman voice. This, however, is most exi)ensive. A 
manufacturer or merchant of New York may send 
a representative to San Francisco at a cost in ex 
pense and salary of ^500 and to see it may be only 
one customer. A regular salesman may make trips 
to all parts of the country during the year calling 
on perhaps 100 customers or less. Salesmen who 
visit only the larger buyers command a salary of at 
least $6,000 a year, to which is to be added the ex- 
pense of traveling, etc., about $;i,000, making the 
work of this salesman cost in one year |t),000. The 
manufacturer or merchant could have printed the 
words used by his salesman, express himself with 
greater care and reach the buyers, through the mails 
at an expense of $50, saving apparently $8,950, but 
his loss in trade through the activity of comjietitors, 
who recognize the importance of certain work being 
done in person, would likely reach many thousands 
more. There are various ways of advertising; news- 
papers, magazines, personal work, letters and many 
other means and so much to be accomplished by it, 
it is reduced to a science that requires a most 
thorough study. Advertising reaches out and af- 
fects the business world more than an.v other ele- 
ment which enters into its progress. The farmer, 
seeing the advertisement of an article in a news- 
paper, little thinks the advertisement in many cases 
reduce the cost to him more than half. By this 
means the manufacturer can increase his output to 
such an extent that he goes to the original source 
of supply for material obtaining the lowest price 
in his i)urchase, the enlarged business, carrying 
with it a corresponding reduction, in the cost of 
making and selling the finished i)roduct. By judi- 

cious advertising, the manufacturer, in many cases, 
is enabled to sell articles on account of the large 
outjiut, at live c(*nts. which produced in a limited 
way would cost fl. Through this nu>aus the cost of 
almost ever.v article of general use which contri- 
butes to the comfort and well being of mankind, is 
reduced to a minimum and the quality giiMtly im- 
pi-oved. To illustrate, the railroads will carry you in 
a moving jialace with ever.v comfort of the well reg- 
elated home from New York to San Francisco, at a 
cost of less than $100, while the expense <if running 
these trains, if then- did not advertise and Si'cure a 
large nunil)er of jKissengers, would bankrujit a mil- 
lionaire in a few months. We see th(> advei-tise- 
ments of the railroads in every publication, in 
jtamphlets, signs, the employment of artists, the 
most talented writers and an arm.v of brain.v men, 
whose wliide dut.v is to travel and talk in the inter- 
est of the road they represent; so it is with great 
merchants Mr. Wanamaker, the largest retail mer- 
chant in the world, was on the verge of failure a 
few years ago, but by judicious advertising he has 
made himself a many times millionaire. With his 
immense stocks of goods in Philadelphia and New 
York, if he were to stop his advertisements he could 
dispense with three-fourths of his emplo.ves in a few 
months, and within a few years would most likel.v 
go to the wall. He emplo.vs one man to write ad- 
vertisements at a salary of $15,000 a year. Ar- 
buckle Bros., who are the largest imjxirters and 
dealers in coffee in the world, were running a gro- 
cery store in Pittsburg Avhere the.v began to roast 
coffee in a small way for their retail trade. By ju- 
dicious advertising they have increased their busi- 
ness and fortune to their present gigantic propor- 
tions. James Pyle, the manufacturer of Pearline, 
which we find in every grocery store and in almost 
evei-y home, a few years ago, had only a small busi- 
ness and little capital, but a keen insight into the 
value of advertising, he owes his present immense 
fortune and large business almost wholly to this 
means. He recentl.v paid over $4,000 for a page ad- 
vertisement, one issue, in a popular magazine, lio- 
bert Bonner, the late millionaire, publisher of the 
New York Ledger, flft.v years ago, had no means, 
and was working in a newspaper off'ice at $50 a year 
and board. Just before his death he stated that for 
many years he expended virtually, in advertising, 
all his earnings, and to this i>ractice was indebted 
almost wholly for his great fortune. The manu-

and value possible, thus increasing his friends and 

Of the many means to be used in advei-tising. all

most potent is the columns of a well conducted 
newspaper, yet of the n)illions of newspapers pub- 
lished in the United States daily, within 48 hours 
after their publication, the number in existence is 
only a few thousand, while an advertisement in a 
book which contains valuable information of fre- 
(luent use in which our interest is not only for the 
day, but lasting, is valuable for the reason that such 
books take a permanent place in the homes of the 
people. In addition, the influence of an advertise- 
ment on the reader is effected largely by its asso- 
ciation. An advertisement associated in a j)ublica- 
t'on, with matter which the reader feels should be 
preserved, has a stronger influence than when asso- 
ciated with transitory matter, which is read at a 
glance w'ith no attempt to give it a permanent place 
in the memory.

Cole County Illustrated Sketch Book and 




^0 J^o iM@mm/sSo 

John F. Heinrichs, who is tamilarly known to every one 
in Cole and surrounding counties as the "Furniture King," was 
born in Cologne, Germany, November 30, 1S4S, from which place 
his parents immigrated to Jefferson City when he was four 
years o£ age. The subject o£ this sketch was reared and 
educated in Jefferson City, attending public schools, later Wy- 
nan's University of St. Louis and St. .lolm's Commercial College. On 
his return to Jefferson City, after completing his commercial 
education, he assisted his father, who was engaged in the busi- 
ness of furniture and undertaking. He was later associated 
in the business of which he became the owner in 1879, when 
the location was on the corner of Jefferson and Main streets; 
from there he removed to one of the store rooms under Bragg 
Hall, corner Monroe and High streets, and to his present loca- 
tion, 207-9 East Main, in 1897. He was united in marriage May 
13, 1873, to Miss Mildred (daughter of the late Judge Milo Blair 
of Boonville, a prominent man of the State). To this union 
has teen born six children, four boys and two girls, one of each 
died in infancy. Milo, Charley, Claud and Agnes are at home. 
Agnes, the youngest child, is a musical prodigy, whose wonder- 
ful performance on the piano, for one of her age, has attracted 
much attention and been a subject of frequent reference in the 
papers and magazines. Mr. Heinrichs is a member of the Cath- 
olic church, K. of P., The Elks, L. O. H. and A. O. U. W. In 
politics he is a Democrat. He is at present a Regent of Lincoln 
Institute, and was twelve years a member of the city school 
board; and appeals for charity always find a response in his 
generous heart. It may be truly said of him that the title by 
which he is known, the "Furniture King" of Col© county, is 
most appropriate, as he carries m his spacious store on East 
Main, a stock of everything in the line of furniture and under- 
taking. His large business attests his popularity as a man, and 
the low prices he makes on his merchandise. His comfortable 
home, with his very interesting family, is 324 East Main.

Shakespeare, the greatest writer of any I 
age, when he gave to the world, more 
than 300 years ago, the sad and tragic 
story of the Prince of Denmark, made 
Polonious, the chief counselor of the 
King, give to his son, Laertes some wise 
and wholesome advice, on the eve of his 
departure for France. Among many good 
things he said: 

"Above all things, to tliine own self be 

And it must follow, as the night the 

Thou canst not then be false to any 

Costly thy habit as thy purse can buy, 
But not expressed in fancy; 
Rich, not gaudy, 
For the apparel oft proclaims the man." 

This is as true to day as 
when written by Shakesp ar3 
three centuries ago. Dr. 
Samuel Johnson. in his 
"Tale of the Tailors," says, 
"Clothing is the dividing line 
between man and beast;" 
while the great philosopher, 
Herbert Spencer, says, "The 
object of education is to qual- 
ify ourselves to properly 
house, clothe and feed the 

In the memory of many 
people now living, it was 
only the favored few, who 
w-ere the envy of the neigh- 
boring boys, that could af- 
ford to wear store clothes. 
The clothing business, in the 
outside towns especially, was 
confined to a small bunch of 
coats and pants, a very min- 
or part of the varied stock 
of the general merchant. But 
today we note in this import- 
ant branch of commerce as 
great evidence of the prog- 
ress of the age as in any 
other industry. The business 
has assumed its own place 
in the commercial world, t':;e 
stocks carried by prominent 
clothing merchants requiring more capi- 
tal invested and skill in conducting the 
business than any other line, and in that 
field are now the largest and best mer- 
chants of the progressive cities through- 
out the country. 

These changes have developed, as all 
other lines in their advancement, men 

whose business qualifications, close and 
thorough application, enable them to out- 
strip less favored competitors; as tlie 
large amount of goods used by such men, 
coupled with the capital with which to 
purchase, makes them sought after by 
the leading manufacturers, and, as a re- 
sult, the advantages they enjoy over 
ordinary competitors are brought about 
by the incidentals attending a large and 
prosperous business all along the line, 
from the time the raw material leaves 
the hand of na.ure, until the pe» .ect and 
artistic garment is finished, ready to 
adorn the person of man. 

Of this class of merchants, Harry 
Wyman, of the Golden Eagle, stands at 
the head of the list in Jefferson City. 
He was born September 14. 1S67, in Cleve- 
land, Ohio, where in his early youth, he 
a. .ended school. At the age of 11 he 
entered his father's grocery store and 

continued as a clerk three years, when he 
went to Chicago, where he was em- 
ployed by his brother in a large depart- 
ment store as clerk until the age of Ifi, 
when he was made floor walker. In this 
position he continued five years when he 
entered the employ of the late E. J. 
Lehman. oM'ner of the "Fair," one of the 
largest and most prosperous concerns of 
the kind in the world. Here he was the 


assistant manager of the entire business, 
in which important position he continued 
four years. He then removed to Humbolt. 
Kansas, taking charge of a department 
store for his brother, from which place, 
after three years, he went to Arkansas 
City, Kansas, where he held a similar 
position five year with a Kansas City 
house. Removing to Pratt, Kansas, he 
engaged in business on his own account, 
having two rooms, one of w^.ich he de- 
voted to groceries, the other to cloth- 
ing and gent's furnishing goods. Here 
he did a prosperous business six years, 
when he removed to Tipton, Mo., en- 
gaging in the clothing business exclu- 
sively, from which place he removed to 
Jefferson City, in 1S97, and opened the 
Golden Eagle One Price store. Soon 
after Mr. Gus Hirschland associated with 
him and continued as his partner uniil 
January, 1900, when they disposed of their 
joint interest, Mr. Wyman 
leasing the store for five 
years and having it remod- 
eled throughout, utilizing 
every modern convenience 
and making it one of the 
most complete clothing stores 
in the city. In this splendid 
Iiuildins lie OL'cupies two floors 
the upper Vieins devoted 
to boy's and youth's cloth'ng 
and furnishings: the lower to 
men's goods, which includes 
the latest and best from the 
manufacturers of New York 
and Chicago. Mr. Wyman 
was married in Humbolt, 
Kansas, January, 1SS5, to 
Miss Maggie C. Neely of that 
city, (who had recently re- 
moved from Noelyville, 111.), 
where her father was 
prominently engaged in coal 
mining, owning the large 
mines operated there; the 
town being named in his 
honor. To this union has 
been born two children: Ar- 
thur, a bright lad 14 years 
of age, assists in his father's 
store; Barbara Middlemarch. 
an interesting girl of six, is 
a pupil at the private school 
of Miss Epps. His home is 
319 Monroe street. Mr. Wy- 
man is a naturally bright 
and active merchant who has 
had a wide and varied ex- 
perience in the commercial 
world, an experience which 
he uses most successfully in 
conducting his large and constantly 
growing business. His stock embraces 
everything in the line of men's, boy's and 
youth's clothing and gent's furnishing 
goods, hats, trunks, valises, e.c. By do- 
ing a strictly cash business, his low prices, 
in connection with his large stock draws 
trade for many miles in every direction in 
response to his wide awake and judicious

1800, where he came with a flue experience and 
knowledge of the dry goods business gathered from

his association with the K. Dallmeyer Dry (ioods 
company two years, followed by two years as presi- 
dent of the Sieling-Brenneisen Dry Goods company, 
which the ju'esent corporation succeeded in Febi'U-

It Pays to Sell Good Goods j 



It pays and repays when you are so circumstanced that you can l 

sell good goods at the same price or probably less than are often f 

paid for bad goods. Paying t 


And practicing economy where it would be easy to be wasteful, is i

We want your trade on the basis of selling you good shoes at a bad shoe price. 
Can we have it ?

Cole County Illustrated Sketch Book and 


Much interest (ciitcis in llie subject of this 
sketch, from the fact tliat he is ])resitlent and 
founder of the Jesse French Piano and Organ Co., 
one of the largest concerns of its kind in America, 
with distribiHiiig points in nian.v of the hirge 

He started out in life as newsboy, printers devil, 
clerk, accountant, then assistant secretary of the 
State of Tennessee, commencing- his business career 


aci'es of land witli water power and nadirai gas, 
wlu're tlii'.\ make the famous Starr, Jesse French 
and Kicliniond I'ianos. This is the second largest 
piano factory in America, and they expect this year 
to t-nrn o\ii six tlmusand jiianos. 

Mr. French is only tiftyfour years of age, and 
gives the business the same careful supervision as 
ever. He has three sons, John, Horace and Jesse, 
jr. The former was for some years secretary and 

in 1872, in a small way, in the sheet music business 
in Nashville, Tenn., in wiiicli lie was very success- 
ful. In 1876 he entered the jiiano business, which 
presented a larger field of ojjeration; putting the 
same energy and discretion in this, as .others, he 
won the same success until he is now at the head 
of this mammoth institution. 

His business extended to all p((ints of the com- 
pass, and some years ago he removed from Nash- 
ville, Tenn., to St. Louis, as a more suitable place 
for the headquarters of such a vast enterprise. 
Foreseeing the necessity of manufacturing high 
grade pianos to supply their ever increasing trade, 
the stockholders bought one of the most desirable 
plants in the United States, embracing thirty-flve 

treasurer, but recently branched out in tlie manu- 
facture of Automobiles, and is now president of the 
St. Louis ]Motor Carriage Co., the leading institution 
of its kind in America; Horace, his second son, suc- 
ceeded him as secretary and treasurer of the Jesse 
French Co., and is also secretary and treasurer of the 
St. Louis Motor Carriage Co., and proves a valuable 
help to both concerns, while Jesse, jr., is acknowl- 
edged to be an all-round i)iano man, "a worthy son 
of a noble sire." One secret of Mr. French's success 
is that he has won the confidence of the public by 
his courteous and fair dealing; so that customers 
run no risk in dealing with their comi)any. They 
make nothing bnt what they can sell on honor and 
full guarantee.

lie Constitution of Missouri provided that no place 

hould be selected for the Permanent Seat of Gov- 

rninent wliicli was not situated on the banks of the 

lissouri Kiver and within forty miles of the mouth 

if the Osage. At the first session of the Legisla- 

iire held in ^lissoiiri, after its admission as a State. 

Ill act was passed fixing the I'eriiianent Seat of 

Tovernment, and in the same act the Legislature ac- 

•e](ted, for the use and benefit of the State, the four 

:ections of land selected by the Commissioners, 

Among other wise provisions was a reservation 
for a park surrounding the Capitol Building and 
Governor's Mansion. It seems, with their limited 
opportunities for observation, almost a miracle that 
the committee for the selection of the location of 
the Permanent Seat of Government should have se- 
lected the most beautiful and by nature the most 
perfectly adaiitcd spot in the State. This is true, 
however, as will be attested by all who have ob- 
served its beauties as compared with any other 
place of equal size in Missouri. The City of Jeffer- 
son is incomparably the most beautiful town in 
the State. In charms of natural location, modified, 
not altered, by man, it stands without a rival in the 
l"nited States. It is built on lovelv hills at whose

a town should be laid out, and the lots sold in such 
manner as should be jirescribed by law. This act 
was approved December 31, 1821. By an act of the 
General Assembly, approved January 1, 1822, the 
town was to be laid out in at least one thousand 
lots, and the principal streets should not be less 
than one hundred feet wide; the other streets not 
less than eighty. On the first Monday in May, 182:!, 
said lots were to be sold on the jiremises to the 
highest bidder, except such as would be reserved 
f(U' public use. This act also stated that the town 
should be laid out as the Permanent Seat of (iovein- 
nieiit, and should be called the "Citv of Jetterson."

souri River to where the Mississippi empties into 
the Gulf of Mexico, it is the longest river in the 
world. There is no more enchanting view than 
one from any part of the Cajiital City, of the end- 
less landscape of green surroundings, when viewed 
in connection with the turbulent waters of the Mis-

has no greater attraction than the surroundings

Dr. Alon,!-j Hurbert Hatch, the optician 
and watcli-maker at 132 East High street. 
Jeffersoit City. Mo., was born April 12, 
1S52, in Brookfleld, Vt., his early educa- 
tion being: in Norwich Seminary, at Mont- 
pelier. Vt. He left school on account of 
the death of his father, September 23, 1863, 
and went to Quebec, Canada, to learn the 
business of watch-maker. Here he served 
an apprenticeship under Tubel Holmes, 
one of the It^ading watchmakers of Amer- 
ica, with -,vbom he remained four years. 
In 1S69 he WKnt to the Waltham (Mass.) 
Watch Factory, where he remained until 
August, 1ST2. when he began business on 
his own iiccount in Fairbury, 111., in part- 
nership with .b. C. Morris, where the Arm 
continued to do a prosperous business as 
watchmakers and dealers in jewelry until 
1875, when he took a special course in 
optical instruction under Dr. Williamson 
of Cincinn.iii, Ohio. In 1875 he took a sec- 
ond course in this science under J. W. 
Edmonson of Indianapolis, Ind. During 
the time of his receiving instruction in 
the ;;cience he continued his busi- 
ness at Fairbury. In March, 1875, a de- 
structive Are consumed his stock at Fair- 
bury, a total loss, after which he en- 

gaged in business in Gibson City, 111., 
from which place, after one year, he re- 
moved to ^S'indsor. 111., where he con- 
tinued 14 years to do a successful jewelry 
and optical business. During this time 
he took two courses in the optical science 
under the celebrated opticians. Drs. 
Prince of Springfleld, III., and Holmes of 

Chicago. In ISSiJ he disposed of his busi- 
ness at Windsor, and for one year trav- 
eled tor the Peoria Optical Company as; resigning this position he 
went to Mt. Carmel, 111., where he en- 
gaged successfully in the practice of his 
profession until October, 1895, when he 
removed to Jefferson City, accepting a 

position with A. Guyot where he contin 
ued two yeai'S, when he opened his pres 
ent business at 132 East High street. 

Dr. Hatch was united in marriagi 
March 1, 1876, to Miss Julia Carny of Gib 
son City, 111. To this union have beei 
born two daughters: Alice is the wifi 
of Mr. Earl Blood of Texarkana, Texas 
where tie has a position with the K. C. 
P. & G. Railroad: Miss Gertrude Jasimii 
is at hoiae. Dr. Hatch has been a mem 
ber of the I. O. O. F. and the K. of P 
for more than a quarter of a century, ii 
which org-anization he has occupied al 
the official positions in the lodges of lUi 
nois, when; he has been so long a mem 
ber. He has also been for 14 years i 
member of the M. W. A., and is at pres 
ent clerk of the local camp No. 2304. H( 
has all his life taken a deep interest ir 
the optical science, and as a result, witl 
his large e:-:i>erience. he is today, one o: 
the best equipped men to serve those witl 
unfortunate defects in that most deli 
cate of the body (the eye) in tht 
State of Missouri. His close, intelligeni 
and skillful attention to the importani 
science of i>roperly treating the eye witl 
glasses rather than drugs is meeting witl 
merited success in the Capital City, wher( 
he enjoys a large and growing business 
and is a most worthy citizen.

Charles Dewey, now of the Press Printing Co., was 
Captain of the team the greater part of the season 
of 1899, when he resigned, and the captainship was 
tendered to Lee Garvin, who finished the season 
as such. In 1899 the team made a circuit of the 
States of Missouri and Illinois, defeating every club 
they came in contact with except the Alton Klues 
of Alton, 111., who won the series. The club had 
three pitcheis, ilessrs. I'opp. Coleman and Mauiiin, 
and each had enviable records; the backstoji work 
was jierfornied by <"a]it. Lee Garvin and AVilcox. 
The other positions were tilled by excellent ball

iufj Ix'cn lumof't'il willi tlio I'l-esidciicy of (be Mis- 
souri 8inyle Tax LcafAiic, wliicli oigauization has, 
siuce the beginning of this year, been actively en- 
gaged in pushing tlic worlc throughout the State 
on tlie question of direct legislation, otherwise 
Ivuown as the Initiative and Keferendum. Single 
Taxers have always advocated and woiked for the 
idea of governmental control of ]iublic utilities as 
may be seen by referring to tlicii- ]iul)lic declara- 
tions and platforms. 

A\"e herewith lojpy the Single Tax League plat- 
form, with notes, which expresses the ideas which 
tliey advocate on the social and economic jirohlems 
more cleail.x' than we are able to do with our limited 
op|portuiiitics for investigation: 


The single tax cont.emj)lates the atiolition of all 
taxes upon labor or the products of labor — that is 
to say, the abolition of all taxes save one tax levied 
on the value of land, irrespective of improvements. 

Since in all our Statx's we now levy some tax on 
the value of land, the single tax can be instituted 
by the simple and easy way of abolishing, one after 
another, all other taxes now levied, and commen- 
surately increasing the tax on land values, until we 
draw upon that one source for all expenses of gov- 
ernment; the revenue being divided between local 
governments. State governments, and the general 
government, as the revenue from direct taxes is 
now divided between the local and State govern- 
ments, or a direct assessment being made by the 
general government upon the States, and paid by 
them from revenues collected in this manner. 

The single tax is not a tax on land, and there- 
fore would not fall on the use of land and become 
a tax on laboi-. 

It is a tax, not on land, but on the value of land. 
Thus it would not fall on all land, but only on val- 
nal)lc land, and on thai mil in propoilion to the use 
made of it, but in jiroiiortion t(j its value — the pre- 
miuin which the nsei- of hind iiiustjiay to the owner, 
eilhci- in ]Mncliasi' nioiicy or in relil, for ]MTiiiission 
to use valuable land. It would thus be a ta.x, not 
(jii the use or ini|ii-o\('nicnl of land, hut on the own- 
ei'ship of land, taking what wduhl otherwise go t-o 
the owner as owner and nol as user. 

In assessments under I he singh' lax all values 
creale(l 1)\ individual use oi- inipid\ cnicnl \\<inl(| he 
excluded, and the only value taken into considera- 
tion would be the value altaching to the bare land 
h\ I'casoli of liciglibiilhood, etc. Thus I he faiiuer 
would ha\(' no more taxes to pay than I lie sjiccu 
hitor who held a similar piece of land idle, and the 

nnin who on a city lot erected a valuable building 
would be taxi'd no more than the man who held a 
similar lot vacant. 

The single tax, in short, would call upon men to 
contribute to the public revenues not in luoportion 
to what they produce or accumulate, but in propor- 
tion to tlH' value of the natural ojiiiortunities they 
hold. It would coin|)el them to ]iay jiisl as much 
for holding land idle as f(M- putting it to its fullest 

The single tax, tlierefore, would- — 

1. Take (he weight of taxation off the agri- 
cultuial districts where land has little or no valu(; 
irrespective of imiu-ovements, and jiul it in towns 
and cities, where bare land rises to a value of mil- 
lions of dollars per acre. 

2. ])is|)ense with a muliiplicity of taxes and a 
horde of taxgatherers, simplify government and 
greatly reduce its cost. 

;?. Do away with the fraud, corriiplion and 
gross inequality inseparable fiom our jueseiil meth- 
ods of taxation, which allow the lich to escajie while 
they grind the poor, i^and cannot be hid or carried 
off, and its value can be ascertained with greati'r 
ease and cei'tainty than any other. 

4. It would, on the other hand, by taking for 
jinlilic uses that value which attaches to land by 
reason of the growth and improvement of the com- 
munity, make the holding of land unpi-ofitable to 
the mere owner, and profitable only to the user. 
It would thus nmke it im[)ossible for speculators 
and monoi)olists to hold nadiral ojqiorl unities un- 
used or only half used, and would llirow o]ien to 
labor the illimitable field of eiM|)loyment which the 
earth offers to man. It would thus solve the labor 
jiioblem, do away with involuntary jioverty, raise 
wages in all occupations to (lie t'lill earnings of 
labor, make overproduction impossible until all hu- 
man wants are satisfied, render laboi'-saving imcii- 
tions a blessing to all, and cause such an enoiinous 
production and such an e(|iiiiable dislribulion of 
wealth as would give lo all comfort, leisure and 
pari i<-ipal ion in llie advantages of an advancing civ- 
ili/.al ion. 

Tlie elliical piiiiciples oil wliicli ilie single tax is 
b.'ised are: 

1. Kacli man is eiililled lo all lliat his labor 
pidiliices. Therefore, no ta.x should be levied on 
the inodiicts of lab(U'. 

2. .Ml men are equally eiililled lo what <iod has 
crealed and lo what is gained by the general growth 
and iiii|u-ovement of the community of which they 
are a part. Therefore, no one should be permitted

iTeiirv <Teoi'ge. the f;ieat ]iolitical economist and 
the abh^st writei- on social iH'oliliMiis the woild has 
j.iodnced. was born iu Philadelphia. I'a.. September 
2. !8."!!). He was a son of a publisher of Protestant 
E[)isco]ial I'burch books. He received his early 
education in the imblic schools of Philadelphia. His 
first work was in a queensware store, from which, 
after one year, when 14 years of age, he made a trip 
to New York, London, Melbourne, Palcutta and back 
again to New York as a cabin bov. the voyage cover- 
ing fourteen months. At the earnest wish of his 
father he learned the printer's trade, the coutine 
ment, however, being distasteful to him he shipped 
as an ordinary seaman on a coasting vessel bound 
for Boston. In 18oS. he was drawn by the reports of 
the discovery of gold iu British Columbia, and shi]i 
ped before the mast on a vessel bound for the Pacitic 
<'oast. He worked his way to the gold regions oti 
the Frazer River, where his liopes of securing tin- 
precious metal were not realized. He returned to 
Victoria, B. C; soon took steerage passage to Sau 
Francisco, ('al.. which jilace he reached in IS.l!), 
penniless. After suffering extreme poverty here hi' 
went to Sacramento, where he found emjiloyinent in 
a printing office. But from this place he was soo;i 
tempted by the stories of the great wealth of gold 
n ines. to the interior of the State, a trip that again 
resulted in disapjiointment. Returning to San 
Francisco he was for sometime a comjiositor iu a 
newsjiaper office. In l.s()(l. he established, with 
others, a newspaper called the Journal, which he dis 
continued on account of the ditticulty of obtaining 
news from the East. He later opened a job jirinting 
office in San Francisco. This venture proved un- 
profitable. A\hen the attempt was made to estab- 
lish an empire in Mexico under Maximillian, he 
joined an expedition and intended to aid the Mexi- 
cans, but was prevented from sailing by the T'nited 
States forces. He now began writing for different 
newspapers under an assumed name. His identity 
was discovered, however, by the editor of the San 
Francisco Times, on which he accepted an editorial 
place, and subsequently became managing editor. 
He .was \later engaged with the iSan Francisco 
Chronicle, Herald and Oakland Recorder. While on 
the last-named paper his opposition to corporations 

and monopolies li-d the Central Pacific iiaiiroad Co. 
tci buy a I'ontrolling interest iu the paper and make 
a chiinge in the editorship. In ISTl he published 
a patu|ihlet under the title of "Our Land and Land 
Policy. Xatinnal and State." which had a limited 
sale. The following year he was delegate to the con- 
vention that iMiniin;!ted Horace (Jreeley for Presi- 
dent. He late!' estublishi'd the San Francisco Even- 
ing Pest, a \enture which resulted in the loss of his 
accumulations. He was then ajipointed Insjiector 
of Cas Meters in San Francisco, a jiosition which 





■~ #^^ 


yielded him a lair salary and left sufficient leisure 
for literary work. In 1879 he completed his book, 
"I'rogress and Poverty," of which a few copies were 
printed privately iu San Francisco. He removed 
to New York, in 1881), where, after one year, with 
gi'cat difficulty, he .secured the publication of the 
b( ok in that city and London, (roing to Ireland, in 
1881, he wrote up the land question for several Amer- 
ican newspapers, during which time he delivered 
a series of lectures in England. He also lectured 
in Scotland, on the invitation of the Scottish Land 
Restoration League. The result of his observations 
while in England and Scotland was the "Irish Land 
Question," "Social Problems." and "Protection and 


Cole County Illustrated Sketch Book and 

Free Tijidc." On his return to tbe United States he 
was a candidate of the Union Labor Party for the 
otfice of Mayor of New York, but was declared de-

elected. In 1S87 he established the "Standard," and 
with Dr. McGlynn organized the Antil'overty Soci-

He was an unsuccessful candidate for Secretary of 
State of New York, in 1SS7. In 1889 he visited Eng-

He died in New York, October 29, 1897, in tbe midst 
of the campaign for the mayoralty of Greater New

30,000 persons viewed his remains while lying in 
state in the Grand Oentral Palace. His work "Prog- 
ress and Poverty" was published in French. German, 

Spanish, Italian, r)nt<li, Swedish, Kussiau. Jmi):ui-

Condition of Labor," "An Open Letter to I'ope 
Leo Xill," and the "I'erplexed Philosopher," were 
among the greatest productions of this remarkable 
man. His latest productiini was entitled "The 
Science of Political Economy," which was jiubiished 
in 1898. Mr. George was blessed with an observing 
analytical mind to which was added the severe ex-

the prison for many years and the death rate has 
been less than that of the average village. In 1898 
the State property was valued at |1,589,474.59. The

The committee was aided in its etforts to devise 
an attractive list of exhibitions by the co-operation 
of Mr. A. E. Ashbrook, of Kansas City, publisher 
of the KansasCity Horse Show Monthly. The events 
of this show surpassed all former exhibitions, the 
high-jumping of "Joe Wheeler," "Black Douglass"'

feature, though by no means detracting from the 
general interest manifested in the other events, in 
which the best talent of the State was competing.

Directory of Jefferson City and Cole County. 




Our purpose iu this publicatiou is to refiect on its pages Jefferson City and Cole county as they 
are today with only a sutticient glimpse of the past to enable us better to appreciate the many bless- 
ings, comforts and advantages we enjoy (physical, intellectual and social), as a result of the broad, 
far-reaching efforts of the pioneers who hiid. in the then wilds of the West, the foundation of the great 
commonwealth of Missouri. 

The first European to place foot on what is now Missouri soil was the adventurous Spanish Cavalier 
DeSoto, in 1547. The early settlers, however, were largely Fi'ench, coming nearly two centuries later. 
In 1762, as a result of war between England and France, the French claims east of the Mi-ssissippi 
fell to England, while tho«e west of the river to Spain. In ISdl. through the manipulations of the 
great Napoleon, France again had ceded to her by Spain the vast domain west of the Mississippi, 
which in l.'^0:{ the Fnited States, under the administration of Tlunuas Jefferson, purchased of Napoleon 
for fifteen million dollars, this being the Louisiana runhase, the one hundredth anniversary, of which 
event St. Louis is prejiaring to appropriately celebrate iu 1!(03. 

In 1812 the Territory of Missouri was organized, and in 1S2(I entered the Union as a slave State, a 
result of the pacifying intiuence of the great statesman Henry Clay, the measure admitting being 
known as the Missouri Compromise. This compromise and the famous Dred Scott decision made the 
State specially conspicuous in the exciting debates which immediately preceded the tragic horrors of 
the war of the rebellion. At the beginning of the centiny just closing, the whites within the present 
boundaries of the State numbered only a few thousand and the struggles, hardships and tragedies 
attending their efforts to jdant civilization in a land habited by savages and secure from primitive 
nature the necessities of life for themselves and families, we will not attempt even to suggest nor will 
we (although Gibbon says mankind gives more glory to its destroyers than its benefactors, and the tales 
of war are most absorbing! mention the intensely interesting and tragic events of the dark period 
which followed the attempt to dissolve the Union, ^ye will only say that during this bloody strife 
the loss of the State in her best blood was great while that of her material wealth was almost be-

trary profited largely by the great demand for their products resulting from the strife. 

The great State of Missouri in the Geographical Center is unquestionably favored by nature more 
than any other of the American L'nion, as attested bj' her boundless treasures of rich soil, coal, iron,

zinc, lead, copper and well distributed forests of the best timber, abundantly supplied with water 
from the graceful dowing streams and sparkling springs, while certainly none have been more for- 
tunate in the character, enterprise and intelligence of its people; for these reasons, and judging by 
the rapid and substantial progress of the past, we may confidently expect the future to place on her 
bro.w the crown of tirst place among the States. 

Ber. Henry Ward Beecher said: "All admit the State of Missouri, in natural resources, leads all 
the rest, and is the crown and glory of the Union."

It lias been truly said that the ancient boast,"All roads lead to Rome." might with equal pro- 
priety and without distortion of facts be changed to "All roads lead to Missouri." Located as she is, 
about midway between the Atlantic and Pacific. A State that "graples hold upon Mexico and Central 
America on the South, and upon Alaska and British America on the North, and through which is a 
thoroughfare to the golden gate of the Pacific." She is the very heart of the Union, with resources 
enough to nourish the whole body. The area of Missouri is sixty-nine thousand four hundred and 
fifteen square miles or about forty-five million acres; such a vast extent that the entire states of Maine,, 
Massachusetts, Connecticut, New Hampshire, Vermont, Rhode Island and Delaware could be put 
down side by side within its boundaries and stil' leave a margin of nine hundred square miles. But 
few portions of the world are so well watered as Missouri. The 5Iississippi river washes the entire 
eastern boundary. The Missouri washes it on the west from the northwest corner southward for two 
hundred and fifty miles, and hence on clear through the heart of the State. These two mighty rivers 
have many tributaries, large and small; and springs in large numbers and great varieties refresh and 
beautify all parts of the State. Missouri has no desert lands. No words can describe the beauty 
and grandeur of her native forests. Walnut trees one hundred and ten feet high and twenty-two feet 
in circumference; oak trees one hundred and twen ty-five feet high and twenty feet in circumference; 
sycamores one hundred and thirty feet high and twelve feet in diameter; hickory, elm, gum, birch, 
cedar and pine, all grow in every part of the State, and from these, in 1898, Missouri, after using all 
she needed in each district, exported three hundred and fifty million feet of lumber; forty million feet 
of logs, besides six thousand three hundred and seventy-one cars of cord wood, three thousand care 
of cooperage and four million ties. The soil of fully two-thirds of the State is adapted to the raising 
of all the small fruits. The southern part being famous not only in the United States but in Europe 
as the "land of the big red apple." The fruit crop alone in Missouri amounts to twenty-six million 
dollars annually, and as a producer of corn, wheat, oats, hay and potatoes no country in the world can her. 

Missouri does not claim to be a cotton producing State, but in 1S9S more than one million two hun- 
dred thousand dollars worth of that product was sent to market, and the cotton seed products 
amounted to about sixteen million pounds. She stands first in the production of mules, hogs and 
poultry. Fortune has been kind and set the boundary lines of this State around a portion of country 
filled with an unusual amount of the mineral sub stances useful in the manufacturer's art. There 
is no territory of equal extent on the globe which contains so many different kinds and such large 
quantities of the most useful minerals as the State of Missouri: and though her mineral wealth has 
hardly been touched she ranks first in the production of lead and zinc, producing more of the latter 
than all the other states combined. Her iron fields, including Iron Mountain, which covers five hundred 
acres, and Pilot Knob, are almost inexhaustible. The coal area of Missouri is said to be twenty-three 
thousand square miles, and her coal mines produced in one year recently almost three million tons of 
coal, and that is said to be a small amount compared with what might be produced annually. In 
addition to its immense lead, zinc, iron and coal industries ^Missouri also has silver and copper; great 
beds of glass sand, pottery, tile, brick clay and an endless variety of building stone; granite lime- 
stone, sandstone and marble, and for purely ornamental purposes, a Mexican onyx, susceptible of the 
most beautiful polish. Missouri has had a wonderful history which reads almost like a fairy tale. 
Some of her inhabitants yet living can remember when she was a part of the district of Louisiana,

now sueh has been her thr"ft, she ranks in i)Oiiulation as fifth in the sisterhood of the forty-five states 
which compose the American Union, and boasts of a taxable wealth of almost one billion dollars. In 
many lines of business and manufacture Missouri'& cities lead the world. St. Louis is the great 
metropolis of the West; stretching nineteen mik^s along the Mississippi river and about eleven miles 
back from the river front. She has twenty-one railroads, and their cars arrive and depart from the 
largest and most perfectly equipped depot in the whole world. This limited space barely admits 
mention of her great population of six hundred and eighty-five thousand, her manufactories, mercantile 
houses and various industries. Viewed from the dome of her highest building one can hardly believe 
that this vast city can be the growth of less than a century, and seven-eighths of it has grown there 
inside of twenty-five years. Kansas City, Missouri, has the second live stock market of America, and 
many of her smaller cities are examples of wonderful advancement. The population of Missouri is

Tlie First Uaptist chiiicli of JettVrsdii City, was 
not always the strong, j)rospei-ous and influential 
congregation it is today. Its history affords a 
striking illustration of the great advantages 
enjoyed by the citizens of the Capital City of 
the present over those who struggled with the 
circumstances attending its early history. The 
first organization was July 8, 1837, in what was 
then the new capitol of a new- and undeveloped 
State. The original members were Daniel and Ann 
Colgan, Jason and Sally Harrison, P. H. and Sarah 
Steinbergen, Eachcl Walker, Ava Eice, and three 
colored persons named General. Adam and Jennie. 
The presbyterj' was composed of Elders Kemp Scott, 
M. D. Noland and K. S. Thomas. Immediately after 
the organization five additional members were re- 
ceived by recommendation. Elder ^M. D. Xoland was 
first pastor being followed by Elders Kemp Scott, 
S. H. Ford, W. W. Keep, T. F. Lockett and J. A. 
Hollis. This list includes all who served the organi- 
tion as pastor previous to the war of the Eebellion. 
The original meetings were in the private homes of 
the members, the ordinance of Baptism being ad- 

ministered in the Missouri river and neighboring 
creeks. In 1S3S they purchased ground on Monroe 
and Miller and began the erection of a building, al- 
1 hough the entire cost of the structure was less in 
dollars and cents than ore fourth that of the founda- 
tion of the present magnificent church home; it 
required four years of struggle and self denial for 
this little band to complete the house which was 
dedicated in 1842; the building also beinsr used for 
school purposes, another evidence of the marked ad- 
vantages of today when contemplated in connection 
with the number of magnificent brick structures 
now devoted to educational purposes. Unable to 
longer brave the discouraging circumstances with 
which the little flock was burdened they disbanded 
giving each other letters of dismission. Two years 
later there was a struggle for renewed life but the 
struggle was without fruition as there is no 
record of any meeting during the period of 
five years from 1847 to 1852. In 1858 Elders A. 
P. Williams, M. D. Noland and W. B. Walthall, 
held a protracted meeting which resulted in renew^ed 
strength but soon after, the tragic events of war

torate immediately after the war and was succeed- 
ed by Elder W. J. Patrick, under whose wise and 
faithful work the little church toolv on new life, sell-

rick resigned in lS7(t, his successors being Elders 

C. H. Hurlbet and Evans both of whosi' 

services were of short duration. In 1873 the chunli 
called to its pastorate Elder T. W. Barrett who al 
though entering upon his labors under most un 
favorable circumstances, by wise and jiatient man 
agement the church was cleared of a burdensome 
debt and gained spii'itual strength and membership. 
He was succt'cded in 1881 by Elder Kay Palmer, an 
orator of zeal and ability, who resigned in 1887 be- 
ing succeeded by Elder J. T. ^t. Johnston, whose 
qualitications admirably titled him for the pastorate 
of a church m the Capital City. His thorough knowl- 
edge of men and tine social (lualities with his ability 
as a speaker, soon drew around him a large congre- 
gation of enthusiastic admirers. The church was 
too small to accommodate the largely increased at- 
tendance and arrangements were made to sell the 
huilding which was done and the present well ap- 
pointed and modern structure was erected on Main 
and Monroe streets at a cost of about |13.0()0. Both 
the prompt erection and perfectly designed arrange 
ments of the entire church building, (which in ad- 
dition to the large and well appointed auditorium, 
includes a Sunday school room on the tirst tlnoi-,

cated on Xoveml)er 11, 1888, Dr. Green of St. Louis 
preached the dedicatory sermon while Dr. T. ^V. 
Barrett of Columbie ottered the dedicatory prayer. 
While Di'. Johnston was pastor, the church bought 
the beautiful home at 513 East High street for a 
parsonage. During Dr. Johnston's ten years ser- 
vices as pastor, this congregation was greatly en 
riched spiritaully by his earnest and zealous efforts 
for Christ and materially benefitted by his able and 
marked ability as a financier. He resigned, accept- 
ing a call from Delmar Avenue Bajjtist church of 

S(. Louis, of wliirh he is at jiresent ]>astor. He was 
succeeded by Ke\-. W. (". Taylor of Frankfort, Ken- 
tucky, a man of great pulpit powers who for two 
years preached with great acceptance to both the 
church and community. He resigned August 18. 
1M)'J, accepting a cull from the College Avenue Bap- 
tist church of Indianapolis, Indiana, where he is 
now serving. The pastor, Elder W. T. Campbell, 
under whose spiritual guidance the church with all 
its auxiliaries is in a most happy and prosperous 
condition, is the successor of Dr. Taylor. The pres- 
ent officers of the church are: H. A. Gass, mod- 
erator; W. W. Hutchinson, clerk; T. M. Hampton, 
lie.isurei-; James A. Ellis, Houck McHenry, E. L.

men andi J. B. Reynolds are the trustees; W. W. 
Hutchinson, H. W. Clarke, Benj. Hampton, G. M. 
]\raus and T. H. ^^'hitney deacons. H. A. Gass is 
superintendent of the flourishing Sunday school, 
numbering nearly IMKI scholars. Byron Leslie is sec- 
retary of the Sunday school and president of the B. 
Y. P. U., which society numbers 70 members; the 
secretary is Mrs. Byron Leslie. Mrs. H. W. Clarke 
is president of the Ladies' Social Circle. The pastor 
is the teacher of the Bible class, which, at their reg- 
ular meetings on Friday evening, engages in a 
thorough and systematic study of the bible. Tht 
finance committee is the deacons, trustees and the 
treasurer. The membership numbers 373. This 
church is highly favored in its pastor, various offi- 
cials, earnest, zealous members, and its modern, 
well appointed home. 

KI-:\'. \V. T. CAMPBELL. 

Rev. William Tinsley Campbell, jiastor First 
Baptist church of Jefferson City, was born in Sear- 
cy county, Arkansas, iMarch 9, 1852. His father, G. 
W. Campbell, was a native of Tennessee. He was 
a captain in the Confederate army in the war of 
the Rebellion and while in service died December, 
1802. In the misfortunes of war the family lost 
their ])r<i]ieity and were separated. The subject of 
this sketch came to ^Missouri in 18(io with his eldest 
brother, settling on a farm in Greene county, near 
Springfield, from which ])lace he removed to Saline 
soon after. Rev. Camjibell was converted in 1867 
and during a short stay in Arkansas, in 18G8, was 
baptized by Rev. \V. R. Miller, he however, trans- 
ferred his membership to Salt Pond church, in Sa- 
line county, Missouri, whose pastor was Rev. J. L. 
Tichnor, he soon after being licensed to preach by 
that church. Entering William Jewell college at 
Liberty, ilissouri, September, 1872, he remained six

Tears a student, paying his way by manual labor, 
during vacations and out of school hours. While 
thus engaged it is said he sawed with his own hands 
more than one hundred cords of wood. He was 
ordained to the ministry January 26, 1876, while 
still in William Jewell college and served during his 
college term two country churches as pastor two 
years. In 1878 he entered the Southern Baptist 
Theological Seminary of Louisville, Kentucky. 
AN'hile attending this famous theological school, re- 
cently removed from Greenville, South Carolina, he 
was pastor of the Portland Avenue Baptist church 
of Louisville, his labor being attended with happy 
results to the congregation which increased both in 
numbers and spiritual strength. During his theo- 
logical course at Loui.sville, his zeal in laboring for 
the cause, coupled with a close application to study, 
overtaxed his physical strength and he was i-eluct- 
antly forced to retire from both his school and pas- 
torate. Eeturning to Missouri he accepted the 
charge of the Baptist church at Westport, in 1880. 
After two years he was made missionary in Kan- 
sas City, where he organized the Olive Street Bap- cliurch in 1884, with thirty members and con- 
tinued the spiritual advisor of this flock of earnest 
Christians seven years, during which time the num- 
ber increased to 360, with a well appointed church 
home costing $10,000. In 1891 he went aboard tra- 
veling extensively in Egypt, Palestine, Servia and 
Euroi>e, being in company with Dr. H. M. Wharton, 
who wrote the delightful book "A Picnic in Pales- 
tine," which has not only afforded A'ery great pleas- 
ure to the lovers of the .sacred traditions connected 
with that country, but has been a source from which 
to gather a more thorough knowledge of the coun- 
try which compassed the scenes and incidents in 
the life of Christ. Keturning from Europe Rev. 
<'ampbell spent several months in Baltimore and 
Chicago studying men and methods. In 1892, he 
was elected corresponding secretary of the Missouri 
Baptis- General Association His administration ot 
this office, which he filled the following five years, 
reflects very great credit on his worth as an earn- 
est Christian worker and tact as an organizer. This 
jiosition he resigned to accei)t a call to the pastorate 
i)f South I'ark church of Kansas City, a new church 
of sixty members, which he left three years later on 
being called to his present jiastorate with one hun 
dred and eighty members. Rev. Campbell was uni- 
ted in marriage December 29, 1880, to Miss Jennie, 
daughter of J. E. Spurgeon of Pettis county, Mis- 
souri. Of the two children born to this union, one 
died in infancy while the other, Spurgeon Broadus, 
was an infant of one week, when his mother died, 

January 28. 1888, leaving him to the tender care of 
her sister. Rev. Campbell was married a second 
time May 25, 1892, to Miss Emma E. Spurgeon, a 
sister of his first wife, a lady of culture, a graduate 
of the Lexington (Mo.) Baptist Female college, and 
thoroughly in symi)athy with the noble life work of 
her husband. Of the two children born to them, 
Mary Emma, is a bright child of three years. Rev. 
Cam])bell is blessed with a good mind and body 
and although he had to secure his education by the 
work of his hands, his zeal for the cause which he 
served su]i]iorted by an indomitable will, has given 
him unusual advantages of both §tudy and travel. 
His trip to foieign lands was made at a period when 

Iti'v. W. T. Campbell. 

his ripened and recejitive mind could profit much 
by a visit to the scenes around which cluster the 
sacred associations of the Master while on earth; 
observations of which he uses most effectively in 
presenting the story of the cross. His ministerial 
work has been attended with continued and uniform 
success, and eveiy field which has been so fortunate 
as to secure his services was left greatly enriched 
in spiritual strength, numbers and material wealth. 
He is w^hat may be termed an Evangelistic pas- 
tor, yet Ills wonderful tact as an organizer gives to 
him greater force and influence in the great relig- 
ious organization, of which he is an able and worthy 
exponent, than is usual with men who possess the 
qualifications necessary to a successful Evangelist. 
The eminent Dr. W. Pope Yeaman, D. D., in his his- 
tory of the Misouri Bai)tist Associaton, says of Rev, 
Campbell: "The results of his labors during his 
five years services as corresponding secretary of the 
association, is the best commentary which can be

made on his adajitation to the office. During his 
term, Missouri, in common with the whole country, 
passed through a dark and most disastrous period 
of financial embarrassment following the crisis of 
1873. Nevertheless the financial foundations of the 
great Missouri Baptist Association was kept solid 
and prosperous while many secular enterprises went 
down in disaster. His uniform urbanity as a Chris- 
tian gentleman, his generous impulse looking out 
through a radiant face; his large heart jialpitating 
under genuine fellowship with his brethren; his 
warm and earnest gosjjel sermons, and his pathetic 
appeals for the destitute fields and the missionaries, 
contributed to make this most satisfactory record. 
During these five vears, 300 missionaries were em- 

ployed, 6,780 converts reported and 156,939.59 was 
I'aised for State missions. It is worthy of note that 
more persons were baptized by the missionaries of 
the (ieneial Association during his administration 
than during any other five years in the history of 
that body." The First Baptist church of Jefferson 
City is fortunate is securing as their spiritual ad- 
visor so able a preacher and one who comes to them 
with such a varied and rich experience. The church, 
under his pastorate with all its auxilaries, is in a 
most ju-osperous and happy condition. The Rev. 
Campbell makes his home with his genial, devoted 
wife and interesting children in the Baptist parson- 
age, a sj)lendidly api)ointed home which the con- 
gregation has provided for their pastor on East 
High street.

In nothing is the spiritual, intellectual and ma- 
terial progress of Jefferson City so comj)letely 
illustrated as in a review of St. Peter's church, and 
parish, the history of which is most fascinating, and 
properly presented would till a volume larger than 
this. In 1831, occurred the first visit of a Catholic 

Filsl ('atlii)li(/ Chm-rh. Ercrli'd lS4(i. 

priest to Jefferson City. Of the number of families 
of that belief living in the county at that time 
there is no record, but from that year the visits 
of the itinerant missionary priests Mere reg- 
ular, with an ever-increasing freijuency. The 
records kept in the diocesan chancery of St. Louis 
reckon Jefferson City the oOtli ]iarish in the diocese 
and state that in 1S31 the first holy mass was cele- 
brated by Eev. Phoenix L. Verrevdt, a native of 

Father Ilelias. First Spirilual Advisor. 

Belgium and a member of the Society of Jesus, at 
that time resident at the Indian mission of Portage 
des Sioux, St. Charles, Mo. The same records state 
that Jefferson City was again visted by the Jesuits 
in 1836, and it is presumable that these zealous mis- 
sionaries did not neglect the Catholics of Cole 
county in the intervening period. In 1838 Father 
Helias came to Xew \yestphalia (now in Osage 


Cole County Illustrated Sketch Book and 

county, then a part of tiasconailc) as resident mis- 
sionary priest, and from there made regular montli 
ly tours through the adjacent counties; his visits 
including twenty-flve missions, among them Taos 
and Jefferson City. There being no church at that 
time in Jefferson City, the meeting was in a private 
house. He placed the mission under the patronage 
of St. Ignatius, who continued to be venerated by 
the mission as their jjatron saint until the year 
1S46, when the first church was built and dedicated 
under the title of St. Peters. In 1842 Father Helias 
transferred his residence, by order of his superior, to 
Taos, from which place he continued to attend the 
flock at Jefferson City until the appointment of a 
resident pastor in 1840. In 1845 the Catholics of 
Jefferson City were sufficiently numerous to un- 
dertake the erection of 
abuilding. There being 
no resident priest here, 
the following named 
laymen: J. W. Wolters. 
G. II. Dulle, Anton 
Maus, M. Wallendorf, 
F. Roer, B. Eveler. G.

result of the united ef- 
forts of these pious and 
earnest christians ' [is 
shown by the cut of 
the first building found 
in this article. Soon 
after the erection of the 

church, Messrs. J. B. Wolters and B. Eveler were 
sent to St. Louis to request of the Kight Rev. P. K. 
Kendrick to grant them a resident spiritual advisor. 
Rev. Jame.s S. !Mnr]>hy was chosen and assumed 
the duties of resident pastor in July 1840. The pio-

The German Evangelical Central congregation 
of Jefferson City is a member of the German Evan- 
gelical Synod of North America, a church associa- 
tion which advocates the union of the two branches 
of the Protestant church, the Lutheran and Re- 
formed. The history of this church association is a 
remarkable exemplification of the parable of the 
mustard seed from which sprang and grew quite a 
large tree. In 1840, six ministers of the gospel hav- 
ing charge of German congregations in the vicinity 
of St. Louis, met in a little log chnruh in Gravois 

Settlement, St. Louis county, Missouri, and ther( 
formed an organization called "The Evangelica' 
Church Association of the West." This was the in 
significant beginning of the above mentioned Evan 
gelical Synod, which is now represented in almosi 
all states of the I'nion and in Canada, numbering 
900 ministers, 1,1:J0 congregations, 61,500 members 
25.500 associate members and 195.000 communi 
cants. The congregation at Jefferson City was or 
ganized as early as ISoS, but for more than tw( 
vears was without a regular pastor, services beinf

1 Mubers until 1859, when a plain bi'iik church was 
ijilt at a cost of about §1.500. In June. ISCO. Rev. 

seph Eieger, one of the pioneer preachers and 
i unders of the Evangelical Synod, became the first 

ttled pastor of the congregation. Soon after his 

rival a parsonage was built at a cost of §1,300. 

le efforts of this pious, sincere and kind-hearted 

pastor were signally blessed and the congregation 
lourished under his leadership. Although of a frail 
constitution he was an indefatigable worker and 
Dot only administered to the wants of his own flock, 
but was ever willing to do good wherever he had 
an opportunity. During the civil war he voluntar- 
ily and gratuitously performed the duties as chap- 
lain of the state penitentiary. It was no uncommon 
thing during that tragic period to find the parson- 
age turned into a hospital, where sick and wounded 
privates and officers were being nursed by him. He 
was well known to the state officers, being intimate 
with a number of them. The colored race never had 
a better friend than Mr. Rieger. and he was one of 
the first and principal promoters of Lincoln Insti- 
stute, serving as a member of the Board of Regents 
of said institute until his death. On the 20th of 
August, ISfj'.t ■•Father" Rieger, as he was common 
ly known, was called from his sphere of activity 
iind the mortal remains of this faithful servant of 

the Lord were laid to rest in the church cemetery 
in the presence of the Governor, many state oflii- 
cers, all the preachers of the city, a large congrega- 
tion, but especially the poor and common people- 
whom he had befriended by his many benevolent 
acts. In November, 1861), Rev. E.Huber, a young, able 
and energetic divine who, for more than one year, 
had been the assistant of Rev. Rieger, was unani- 
mously elected by the congregation as pastor, and 
as such he continued until January, 1874. 
During his administration a two-story 
school building was erected and the paro- 
chial school established. Rev. Huber 
was succeeded by Rev. H. Klerner, who 
assumed charge of the congregation in 
May, 1874, and directed its aft'airs until 
June, 187C, when he resigned, removing 
to St. Louis. For the next five years, 
from 1876 to 1881, Rev. C. Haas was 
pastor in charge, and after his resignation 
in October, 1881, the congregation se- 
cured the services of Rfev. C. A. Richter, 
a very eloquent preacher. In October, 
1888, Rev. J. L". Schneider became his 
successor and proved a faithful and pru- 
dent worker. The old church building 
being inadequate for ,the needs of the 
growing congregation it was decided to 
erect a larger and more modern house 
of worshi]!. In 1892 the contract for the 
new cluircli was awarded to Mr. Fred 
Hinder, the president of the congregation. 
With pardonable ]>ride the congregation 
may point to its substantial and beautiful church 
edifice, which has been erected and furnished at a 
cost of §10,000. After serving the congregation 
five years w i t h 
marked success. 
Eev. Schneider in 
1893, accepted a 
call as Principal 
of Was li i ngt II ii 
High School, and 
Rev.Th. L. Muel- 
ler, the present 
pastor, was chosen 
as his successor. 
In 1898 the value 
of the church pro- 
perty was greatly 

enhanced by the erection of a modern and commo- 
dious parsonage. The congregation is in a prosper- 
ous condition. The present enrolled membership is 
24.5, viz. : Men's Association, 101 ; Ladies' Society, 99, 



Cole County Illustrated Sketch Book and 

and Youug Ladies' Society, 45 members. The num- 
ber of commuuu-ants is greater than the enrolled 
membership. The church officers are: F. H. 
Binder, I'resident; H. Jens, Secretary; W. Linke- 
meyer, Treasurer; H. Dallmeyer, A. Doerrer, H. 
Faust. Trustees; (). J. Krueger, Collector. Miss 
Pauline Dallmeyer. a young lady of ability who has 
just finished lit-r education in Germany, has charge 
of the parochial school. The position of organist 
and director of the choir is tilled by Prof. S. T. 
Schroetter, a musician of rare talent and culture. 
The congregation maintains a Sunday school, hav- 
ing an eni-ollment of l!()() children, with an average 
attendance (if l.")(), the superintendent of which is 
the jiastor. 

The President of the Ladies' Society is Mrs. Fred 
H. Binder; Vice-President, Mrs. Th. L. Mueller; SeC: 
retary. Mrs. A. Zuendt; Treasurer, Mrs. Jacob Tan- 
ner. This (u-ganization assists in procuring finances 
for benevolent purposes and missions. The of- 
ficers of the Young Toadies' Society are: ^L'ss Tillie 
Tanner, I'resident; Jliss Minnie Opel, Vice-Presi- 
dent; ^liss Tillie Faust, Secretary; Miss Lizzie Gru- 
lier. Treasurer. The auxiliaries of the German Evan- 
gelican Central church, all of which have com- 
fortable quartei's, including the Sunday school in 
their social home in the well furnished basement, 
are in healthy working condition. It is really a 
I)leasure to note a congregation and pastor so liaji 
l>y in all their relations, and where all freely d<) 
their duty to this great uplifting factor in the cap- 
ital city.

and Miss Alice Sears, and arranged for 
a meeting on Sunday for social worship 
and communion in the home of the small 
lint earnest hand, the services being con- 
ducted by Messrs. Boone and Sliainnm. 
As their numbers increased the necessity 
for a permanent place of worship became 
imperative. While the subject of a 
churcdi building was talked nf they were 
not tinanrially able to undertake the erec- 
tion of one. and temporarily met in a 
small biick house south of the State Armory, and 
afterwards in the old ^1. E. stone church baclv of the 
iladison House, then in the old conrt-house. In the 
meantime Maj. J. M. Clarke and wife had become 
members of the organization, also John Walker, 
State Auditor, and Mr. Shannon, who had been 
elected State Su]it. of Public Schools; with these 
and other valuable additions the little congregation, 
with new courage, took steps to secure a house 
of worshiji. and witli the assistance secured 
throughout the State were successful in procuring 
the means, and in 1883 rejoiced in laying the corner 
si line of the present edifice. The congregation has 
.-leadily but slowly grown, and now numbers 125 
members. It has enjoyed the ministrations of schol- 
arly and able preachers, among them Kev. J. W. 
^lontjoy, who preached the dedicatory sermon, and 
Kev. J. H. Garrison, now editor of the Christian 
Kvangelist of St. Louis, an organ of wide circulation 
and great influence. Rev. J. P. Pinkerton is the 
present pastor, having been in charge two years, and 
under his spiritual guidance, the church is enjoying 
a substantial growth. The congregation is contem- 
plating the enlargement- and improvement of their 
house of worship, and will, in the near future, take 
active steps to this end. The auxiliaries of the 
church are the Society of the Christian Workers, of 
which Mrs. W. T. Carrington is President; Mrs. C.

Rev. -Tames Parrish Pinkerton. pastor of the 
Christian church of Jett'erson City, was born in 
Woodford county. Ky., March C, 1845. His father. 
Dr. Louis L. IMnkerton, 1>. D.. a native of Baltimore, 
Md., was a distinguished minister of the same de- 
nomination, and one of the most prominent educa- 
tors of the blue grass state, being the founder of the 
Female Orphan School at Midway, Ky., now hand- 
somely endowed. He was Professor of Belle Letters 
in Kentucky L'niversity. The subject of this sketch 
acquired his education in the private schools near 
his home, and Baconian Institute, of which his 
father was principal, until the age of fifteen, 
when he entered Kentucky University where he 
continued four years. In consequence of the 
blighting events of the Civil War, the school

was groallv iiitcri-uptcd, Gen. Bragg, the famous 
raider iu charge of tlie Southern forces, using 
the building as a hospital. Eev. Pinkerton, at 
the age of nineteen, engaged in teaching, in 
A\hich exalted profession he continued the follow- 
ing two years in Clark and Favette counties, during 
which time (following the legal bent of his mind) 
lie read law. and later was a close student in the 
office of Judge Wm. Kincade, of Lexington, Ky., 
where he was admitted to the bar. He later grad- 
tiated from the Indianapolis law school, class "68, 
after which he returned to Lexington and engaged 
in teaching. After one year, in 1870, he removed to 
Emporia, Kansas, engaging in the practice of law 
and operating in real estate the following two years. 
From Emporia he went to Connersville, Ind., where 
lie engaged in banking with his cousin, J. X. Hustin, 
who was subsequently U. S. Treasurer under Presi- 
dent Benjamin Harrison. Moving from this place 
to Lexington, he assisted his brother-in-law in the 
furniture business, and at his death (which occurred 
soon after) assisted iu winding up his estate. Kev. 
Pinkerton had for several years been impressed that 
it was his duty to preach the gospel, to which he 
responded, occasionally with short sermons. He 
was not, however, ordained to preach until 1879, 
by the Christian church, Greenup, Ky., where he 
continued as pastor the following four years. He 
was later two years at Grayson in Northeast Ken- 
tucky, removing from there to Terrell, Texas, where 
lie was pastor of the Christian church two years, 
when he resigned, accepting a call to McKinney, 
Texas, from which place, after three years, he re- 
moved to Austin, the capital of that state, where 
lie served as pastor two years. From Austin he 
removed to Springfield, Mo., where he remained as 
pastor of the Christian church the following six 
years, and although all the churches of which he 
had charge were greatly enriched in spiritual and 
material wealth during his pastorate (two of his 
congregations building a church during his adminis- 
tration) it M-as at Springfield his efforts were 
crowned with the most marked success. During 
his pastorate of this church there were 500 addi- 
tions. When he resigned, the memberhsip being 
over 700. At the request of the State Board, who 
felt the denomination should have a strong repre- 
sentative in the pulpit of the Capital City, he came 
to his present charge. Rev. Pinkerton was married 
October 7, 1869, to Miss Katherine S. Patterson, of 
Lexington, Ky., a lady of culture and refinement 
whose rare Christian graces are continuously and 
actively used iu the interest of the noble cause 
which engages the life work of her husband. This 

union has been blessed with seven children; 'SI.

In Jiinr. 1834, Rev. Robert L. McAfee organized 
an Old School Presbytt-i-ian i-liiirch in Jefferson Citj 
with the following charter nienibers: AVilliani Bol- 
ton, Samuel L. Hart, Thomas (t. Hart and Mes- 
dames Mary Rutherford, Ann T. Hart, Catharine 
L. Hart, .Vnn E. Hart and the following servants 
of Samuel L. Hart: William, Putnam, Dick, Polly 
iind Maria. Mr. McAfee remained the spiritual 
advisor of this small band of earnest Christians 
until 1843, when he was succeeded by Rev. H. O. 
fioodricli. D. D., who remained one year, his suc- 
cessors being Rev. l)avid Coulter. Richard H. Allen 
j.nd John G. Fackler. Rev. L. D. Longhead was the 
next pastor and he was followed by Rev. John J. 
Cook, who continued in charge until ISGO. Dur- 
ing the tragic period of the war of the Rebellion, 
if any service, there was no record preserved. In 
June, ISGo, the surviving trustees were authorized 
to sell the church property, which was purchased 
by the M. E. church North. This disposition of the 
<hurch property seemed the passing of this church 
organization from the religious field of the Capital 
<'ity, however, several unsuccessful attempts were 
made to revive the organization, but the remaining 
struggling sparks became extinct and now it ex- 
ists only in history. February 4, 1866, Rev. A. T. 
Norton, D. D., organized a church with twelve 
members, all of whom were formerly with the old 
f-chool organization. Rev. J. Addison Whittaker 
took charge of this earnest band (1866) and was, 
in 1873, succeeded by Rev. W. G. Keady, who re- 
mained in charge two years, after which the con- 
gregation Avas without a spiritual leader nearly 
ten years, no services being held except the Sab- 
bath school and an occasional preaching by Rev. 
B. H. Charles during the years of 1878-9, after which 
this organization suffered the fate of its predeces- 
aoT and passed from its declining existence to his- 
tory. In September, 1883, Rev. Thomas Marshall, 
Synodical Missionary, brought together the pres- 
ent organization, special service being held in 188.5 
by Rev. Wm. H. Claggett, who was succeeded by 
Rev. O. W. Gauss, who remained five years. In 
1800 the Rev. J. P. ^Yatkins became the pastor, con- 
tinuing until 1894, when he was succeeded by Rev. 
<Teo. H. Williamson, under whose administration 
the present beautiful edifice on the corner of Mc- 
Carty and Madison, was erected. The auditorium 
is substantially finished in polished oak with ele- 
gant stained glass windows, the ceiling and general 
arrangement, interior and exterior, being gothic. 
An elegant pipe organ assists the very excellent 

choir in filling the siiacious i-oom with triumphant 
harmony. In addition to the well appointed audi- 
torium, there is a well furnished chapel, pastor's 
study, church ])arlors and other conveniences for 
the Sunday school, jirayer meeting and the various 
auxiliaries of the church. The spiritual affairs are 
at present in charge of Rev. John F. Hendy, D. D., 
(see biographical sketch opi)osite page) and under 
whose able, earnest and w-ell directed efforts the 
church has been growing in spiritual strength and 
numbers since his coming in 1896. In addition to 
the regular and usual services there is an excellent

Sunday school, of w-hich Mr. O. G. Burch is super- 
intendent; prayer meetings are regular and well 
attended, the ladies societies are earnest and ac-

is a great factor for good in Jefferson City, the con-

and wealthy citizens. 

RE^'. J. F. HEXDY, D. D. 

Rev. John Fenton Hendy, pastor of the First 
Presbyterian church of Jefferson City, was born in 
North Ireland, August 23, 1837. His parents 
were Francis and Martha (ilolyneux) Hendy, the 
father was in the linen industry, one for which that 
country is famous. In 1841, the family emigrated 
to America, and settled on a farm in Kenton coun-

New Jersey, graduating class of '65. In 18()4, he 
was licensed by the Presbytery at Augusta. Ky., 
and in I860, he was ordained in the Second church 
of Covington, where he was one year pastor. He 
was transferred from Covington to the churches 
of Crittenden and Lebanon in Grant county. Ky.. 
where he spent two years. From there in 1867, in re- 
.sponse to a call, he removed to Vincennes, Indiana, 
where his services as jiastor were attended with 
hapjpy results the following Ave years. During his 
stay he was tendered the presidency of Vincennes 
University, which he declined. In 1872, he removed 
to Owenshdi-o, Kentucky, where he was the spiri-

try at this place he was live months in Europe dur 
ing 1880. In 1881, he responded to a call to the 
pulpit of the First chui'ch of Emi>oria, Kan., where, 
in addition to the duties of pastor of the church, 
he was president of the New Presbyterian College, 
the exacting duties of which, one year later, re- 
quired his resignation as pastor of the church. 
Here he remained ten years, and in addition to the 
duties of directing the educational affairs of the 
institution, he was its financial director, which in- 
cluded the raising of a large sum of money; $50,000 
of which, by the exercise of his strong personal, 
backed by a good cause, he was able to gather from 
the wealthier people of the older settled eastern 

states. During his administration. niaguifi<-i<'n 
buildings were erected at a cost of S^i^l.^oo. th( 
money being raised by his earnest and well directec 
efforts. In 1892, on account of failing health, i

next in charjie was Kev. (". Thurow, now in Milwau- 
kee, Wis. In the meantime there was a division in 
the church, resnirinji' in two eougreitations. The 

first stationary minister, after its organization, was 
Rev. J. J. Walker (1874-1875). now serving a congre- 
gation in Cleveland, Ohio; he was succeeded by Rev. 
H. Wesche, now in St. Louis county, who continued 
for twelve years (1875-1887), doing excellent work. 
His successor was Rev. H. Koeppel, one of the most 
able ministers, serving one year, when he accepted 

the directorship of Concordia <'iillcge. where he has 
continued since. He was succeeded by Rev. H. 
Rolilliiig, who died a few months later, and was suc- 
ceeded by Rev. ('. l*iii/.iier. It was largely diu' to 
his elTicieiit woilc thai the magnificent new church

November. Is'.tCi. tlii' dedicatory sermon being 
jtreachcd by Rev. II. Wesche of St. Louis county, 
who served the same congregation from 1875 to 1887.

Cape (iiraideau county. Mo., where he is still sta-

The congregation has gro\\n from six to 5(18 
incmbers, of which about ;'.25 are commuuieants and 
(15 are voting members; that is, male adults who 
have signed the constitution. Their church build- 
ing is 4(t by 7(f feet, with annexes in the rear, one be-

interior is finished in highly polished oak. The 
main stee]ile has a height of 95 feet from the founda-

large chufch building, the congregation owns tlie 
northeast coiner of !McCarty and Monroe streets, 
which is used for sihool jjurposes. They are 
enabled to carry out their desire to have the chil-

Heuiy ^^'atkins Ewiiig was born in Ricliiiiond, 
Kaj county, Mo., July 4, 184!), was educated in tlie 
public schools of St. Louis, where he gi'aduated from 
the high school with the highest honors of his class, 
later graduating at the Missouri State University 
at Columbia, 1872, being the valedictorian of the 
class, and receiving the orator's medal. He com- 

I^leted the law course at Columbia, and was ad- 
mitted to practice, but on the death of his father, 
in 18T;^>, was elected clerk of the Supreme Court (a 
circuni.stance which changed the course of his life 
and took from the bar one of its most intellectual 
and promising members). He was elected and 
served four terms in this important position, resign- 
ing after a continuous service of eighteen years. 
In 1884 he purchased a controlling interest in the 
Tribune Printing Company and became its presi- 
dent and the editor of the daily and weekly Tribune, 
which, under his skillful and able direction, assisted 
by his great personal influence, became one of the 
strongest elements in guiding the course of Dem- 
ocracy- in the State. He continued the head and 
director of this powerful organ of Democracy until 
his death, at Battle Creek, Michigan (where he had 
gone two weeks previous to seek relief), September 
1, lSt)8. Mr. Ewing was a distinguished represen- 
tative of one of the most intellectual and cultured 

families of the State, and one of exceptional social 
and i)()litical intluenre. His father. Judge E. B. 
Ewing, was secretary of State, attorney-general, cir- 
cuit judge and twice Supreme judge. His mother, 
Elizabeth Allen Ewing. whose home is on East Main 
street, this city, is a sister of Governor Henry Allen 
Watkins of Louisiana, for w'hom he was named. 
His accomplished and devoted wife (a lady of rare 
culture and personal beauty), who survives him, 
was Miss Mattie V. Chappell of Jefferson City. His 
brothers-in-law are prominent in social, political and 
financial circles. They are F. M. Cockrell, now 
nearly thirty years United States Senator from 
Missouri; Hon. Phil. E. Chappell of Kansas City, a 
])rominent and wealthy financier; Judge J. L. Smith, 
presiding judge of the Kansas City Court of Ap- 
peals, one of the ablest jurists of the State; the re- 
cently deceased Hon. John R. Walker of Kansas 
City; Maj. T. O Towles, deputy State superintendent 
of insurance, is the husband of his sister, Florence. 
Other members of the Ewing family in Jefferson 
City and in other i)arts of the State are i)rominent 
in financial, politicnl and social circles. One of his 
most intimate friends and political class-mates was 
the versatile Eugene Field, the children's poet. 
Also his class-mates at the State University were 
Hon. James E. Cooney, at present a member of Con- 
gress; Judge Switzler of Omaha; Prof. T. A. John- 
son of Boonville; Roswell iL Field of Chicago, and 
a number of others who have since become distin- 
guished. The lanientfd Hon. Richard P. Bland was 
a most devoted friend, ilr. Ewing having in charge 
his cam])aign when a candidate for the nomination 
for president before the Chicago convention. He 
was for many years a member of the Missouri Press 
Association, and its president one term, 1896 and 
1897. Mr. Ewing needs none of the cold conceits 
of sculptured marble to preserve his memory to the 
people of Jefferson City and the State. When you 
ask one in Jefferson City to tell you something of 
Henry Ewing, you can see an expression cover the 
face which tells plainly that in speaking of Henry 
Ewing, those who knew him intimately, feel keenly 
the inefficiency of words to express the love and 
high esteem in which they hold dear the memory 
of this manly man. With many unbidden tears 
will start when your questions recall recollections 
of his handsome form, pleasant face, genial and 
courtly manners, kind and gentlemanly deportment. 
He was loved and honored most bv those who knew

sourians, eloquent in speech, elegant in presence, 
never an office-seeker, hut a powerful intiuence in 
the support of his friends, to whom he gave his un- 
swerving devotion. He had the courage of his con 
victions, but was always fair, chivalrous in battle, 
and those who opposed his views could not but love 
him and admire his noble qualities. His name will- 
long live in memory, honored with kindly recollec- 
tions of the incidents of his generous and noble life, 
which are too numerous to even mention in this 
short article. His surviving widow, unwilling to 
endure her sorrow in the stately and liospitable 
home, ■■8choenburg," in the south suburbs of this 
city, after the departure of the loved and congenial 
companion, whose presence made it a place of joy, 
removed to Kansas City, where, near her brother 
and other dear relations, she makes her home, with 
her four interesting children, of whom the eldest,

cultured and refined woman; Dorothy, of the inter-

Arthur P. Clrinishaw, Mayor of Jefferson City, 
was born in Nottingham, England, Jan, 20, 18-19. 
His parents, Jonathan and Eliza Maria (Topham) 
Orimsbaw, came to this country when he was an 
infant, stopping in 8t. Louis, after six years remov- 
ing to Jefferson City. Here the subject of this 
sketch received the educational advantages afforded 
by the city schools, after which he attended Wy- 
man's University of 8t. Louis, where he graduated, 
in 18G1. He then accepted a position with the 
United States Express Company as messenger on 
the Missouri Pacific, bi'tween 8t. Louis and Atchi- 
son, Kansas, in which capacity he served IS years, 
and was then made cashier of the United States 
Express office at Atchison. Resigning this position, 
he was apjiointed assistant postmaster of Jefferson 
City under Capt. Steininger during President Har- 
rison's administration, serving one year. He was 
elected ("(junty Clerk, in 1884, to fill an unexpired 
term of two years, and again elected, in 1886, for 
full term. He was ajipointed joint agent for the 

I'acirtc and United States Express Companies to 
succeed his father, Jonathan Grimshaw, in 18U0, in 
connection with which he is ticket agent for the 
Chicago and Alton Railroad at Jefferson City. In 
18!tl he was elected mayor of the city, serving two 
terms of two years each, and after an interval of 
four years, the citizens feeling the need of his effi- 

cient services, lie was again elected to this impor- 
tant off'ice. He was the first president of the Com- 
mercial Club of Jefferson City, and was one of the 
leading spirits in its organization; was the first 
superintendent of the Jefferson City Bridge and 
Transit Comjiany, serving two years. 

He is a Mason, member of the Rlue Lodge, Cliap- 
ter and Commandery. Is an active member of the 
Grace Episcopal church, of which he is treasurer. 
Mr. Grimshaw was married September 20, 1870, in 
Huutsville, Ohio, to Miss Juliette, daughter of 
Kemj) Troodlow Carter, a native of Richmond, Va. 
Their two sons, Kemp Goodlow and Arthur Perry, 
are owners and proprietors of the Grimshaw Broth- 
ers Grocery, of Jefferson City. 

Mr. Grimshaw is a broad, practical business man, 
whose worth is appreciated and recognized by the 
Capital City, of which he is now the official head. 
His recent message to the council is one of the 
cleanest, most practical documents which has come 
under our observation. His home is >^in E. High st.

General Henry <"lay Kwing. juesident of the Ex 
I hange Bank of Jefferson City, was born August lo 
18l*S. in this city, where he grew to manhood, and 
has continued, most iirominently identified with Hi 
interesis since. His early edu<ati<in was in tht 
public schools of this comity. Following the legal 
bent of his mind, he studied law under his father 
.ludge Robert A. Ewing. His mother was Jant 
Ramsey, a daughter of General Jonathan Ramsey 
one of the pioneers of Missouri, having immigrated 
to this State in 1S17 from Kentucky. In 18o2 he 
was admitted to the bar by Judge G. W. Miller. Ht 
was early associated in his legal juactice with Judge 
E. L. Edwards, and later a number of years with 
J. L. Smith (now presiding judge of the Kansas Citj 
Court of Appeals and one of the most eminem 
jurists of the Statei. the firm being Ewing & Smith 
Such was the jiopularity and reputation of this firm 
that they were emplo\ed on one side of every cast 
before the Supreme Court of Jefferson City out 
temi. He was one of the organizers of the Ex 
change Bank, of which he is now president. He 
was also a stockholder and president of the Osage 
Live Stock Company, which still owns 5,000 acres 
of land in Osage county, is president of the Osage 
Ice Company, which did business at Osage City 
He was associated with P. E. Chappell, J. L. Smith

aud others in ilie lli'sjiei-ian C'attle Comiiany of 
Texas, was president of the Jefferson Citv Land 
ronijiany wliich oix-iatcd huj;t'ly in Kansas City, 
and a number of other important tiuaneial interests 
have been guided largely by the councils of his well 
balanced mind. In addition to his prominence and 
activity as a lawyer, he was attorney-general of Mis- 
souri during the term of Governor Woodson, his 
administration of the otTice reflecting credit on him- 
self and the Judgment of those who honored him 
with the important trust. He represented Cole 
county in the State Legislature one term, and was 
a commissioner of the [Supreme Court of the State. 
He served in this important capacity (which was 
really that of Supreme judge) two years, his asso- 
ciates being Judge John F. Phillips, at present 
United States district judge of Kansas City, and 
the distinguished Judge Alexander Martin, now 
dean of the law department of the State Universit>- 
at Columbia. In this jKJsition his legal ability aud 
long experience as a practitioner were evidenced in 
the able councils and decisions made while on the 
bench. AVhen attorney-general he instituted aud 
conducted with marked skill and ability the great 
suit of the State of Missouri to set aside the ques- 
tionable sale of the Missouri I'acific railroad, made 
by the Republican administration under (iov. 
Fletcher. His distinguished associates in the case 
being Hon. I'.ritton A. Hill and Frank Bowman. 
Mr. Ewing was united in marriage Dec. 12, 185.5, 
to Miss Georgia, daughter of Walter G. and Emily 
A. Chiles of (Jlasgow. Jlissouri, in which place the 
father was a prominent merchant. Mrs. Ewing is 
a niece of the late <'reu. Sterling iPapi Price. General 
Ewing. during his long residence in the city of his 
nativity, has been a prominent figure in its material 
and intellectual progress. His intelligent and earn- 
est opposition to the removal of the capital was 
marked and effective. He killed the bill for a prop- 
osition to submit the question to the voters when 
a member of the Legislature, and it was from his 
well poi.sed legal mind came the able documents 
which presented the legal ])hase in opposition to the 
measure. His active op])osition to the removal con- 
tinued until the important question was finally 
settled. General Ewing is a consistent mamber of 
the M. E. church iSouthi of this city, of which he is 
a steward. He is a man of broad mind and liberal 
culture, with a rich aud varied experience and a 
reputation as a citizen, lawyer and scholar second 
to none in the State. We (juote the words of a few 
eminent men who know him intimately. Former 
Adjutant General John B. Waddill said of him: 

■■•hidge 11. <-'lay Ewing is a lawyer of ability, a jurist 
of experience, a more capable and upright citizen 
is not in the State." Former Governcu' Pi-oct<u- 
Knott of Kentucky: "H. Clay Ewing is not only a 
gentleman of the highest moral character, but one 
whose native aliility aud profound legal (pialities 
have eminently fitted him for the exalted position of 
Supreme judge. I am able to say this from an inti- 
mate, jieisonal ac(iuaintauce of more than twenty 
years." Hon. Phil. E. Chapjiell of Kansas ("ity, 
former State treasurer, said of him: ".Vfler fifteen 
years intiuuite acciuaintauce I can say of him, he is 
au honest, noble and just man. professionally at the 
head of the bar of the State." I»r. S. S. Laws, 

former ](resident of ilic .Missouri State I'niversity: 
"1 had the honor to knijw Judge H. L'hiy Ewing as 
a curator of the I'niveisity, as attorney-general of 
our State, as a uu'uiber of the General Assembly, 
aud in his judicial capacity on the Supreme bench 
as commissioner, and from a close observation, I 
cannot be mistaken in stating that in him I find the 
Jeffers(rnian qualificatious for official trust, hon- 
esty, coiniietence and fidelity." Col. D. H. Arm- 
strong, foiiuer United States Senator from Mis- 
souri: "1 have known H. Clay Ewing (juite inti-

Charles H. Hardin: "H. Clay Ewiug of Jefferson 
City is a gentleman of high social standing, unim- 
peachable character, and a lawyer of large and 
varied experience, and a popular and sound jurist. 
He has excei)tional capacity and learning in the 
law, and is a man eminently distinguished for his 
ability and integrity." Judge John F. Phillips, once 
chief justice of the Court of Appeals of Kansas City, 
Missouri: "He is an able lawyer, a wise and con- 
scientious judge, whose character is above reproach 
and whose integrity is immovable." Hon. John F>. 
Hale, a member of Congress from the Second dis- 
trict: "He is a man of rare character and excej)- 
tional legal attainments." Judge Robert D. Ray, 
formerly on the Supreme bench of Missouri: "I 
have known General Ewing for many years as an 
able and experienced lawyer, a gentleman of high 
character, of unquestioned personal integrity and 
professional standing." Judge J. L. Smith, presid- 
ing judge of the Court of Appeals: ''He is a 
thoroughly accomplished, learned, able and upright 
lawyer and jurist." Hon. John W. Henry, ex-judge 
of the Supreme Court of Missouri: "He is a lawyer 
of high standing, having served with distinction as 
attornej-general of the State, and more recently 
as a member of the Supreme Court Commission. 
The manner in which he discharged the duties of 
the latter office was entirely satisfactory to every 
member of the court and to the bar of the State, and 
through his term of seivice he not only sustained, 
but added to his reputation as a lawyer of ability, 
and demonstrated his possession of all the (lualities 
requisite to fit one for a high judicial position." 
The home of General Ewing, with his cultured wife, 
is Xo. 117 ^^■est High street. 

F. AA'. ROER. 

Francis William Roer, county clerk of Cole coun- 
ty, was born in Jefferson City, August 31, 1859, his 
early education being in the schools of his native 
city, and later attended the celebrated school at 
Muenster, Germany. From the latter school in 1874 
he returned to Jefferson City, and was engaged for 
12 years with Mr. H. Bockrath, now jiresident of 
the Bockrath Shoe Comjtauy, as a grocer's clerk, 
after which he engaged in the business of life and 
fire insurance in partnership Avith his father under 
the firm name of Francis Roer & Son, until the

continued the business on his own account. He was 
citv collector one term and served as a member of 

the city council. While city (ollcetor he was elected

cis William Joseph, whose interesting presence adds 

uuu-h to the pleasure of his comfortable home, No. 
•2-2-2 Madison street; it being the home of his birth 
and continuously since. ^Ir. Roer is a tine specimen 
of physical manhood, a good business man and citi- 
zen. The appreciation of his sterling qualities by 
the citizens of Cole county is attested by his contin- 
ued re-election to the important ]>osition he holds. 
His majority, when first elected, was 124. the second 
time 185, while at the last election it was 510. 

MA J. >\'. H. LUSK. 

Maj. \^'m. H. Lusk, for thirty years the Circuit 
Clerk and Ex Officio Recorder of Deeds of Cole 
county, is one of the most interesting characters of 
Jefferson City. He was born in Cumberland county, 
Pa., on the 5th of September, 1827, the son of W'il- 
liam and 5Iary (Fitzsimmonsl Lusk, natives of Penn-

Rebellion, when the excitement in regaid to slavery 
and secession was at its height he was advised by 
the Hon. Thomas H. Benton to adopt as his policy 
"un(|ualitied sujjjiort of the fnion under all circum- 
stances and launch out boldly on that line," advice 
most congenial to his ideas of patriotism and which 
he followed through the crisis, a course resulting in 

Ihe loss (jt his ]ilant and projierly. but which now 
reflects gloiiously to his credit. In this crisis the 
sj)irit and jatriotism of the jieojile re(]uired direc-

City, where he continued to teacli twenty-six con- 
secutive years. Being a delegate to the Republican 
county convention which met in Jefferson City in 
'94 for the purpose of nominating county officials, 
he was, without any solicitation on his part, urged 
to accept the nomination for the office of Probate 
Judge, and although a Republican, he was elected 
the following fall and in '!t8 re-elected for a second 
term, without any electioneering on his part, not-

:Maj. Joseph Marcus Clarke, now deceased, was 
born June 4, 1814, in Bethel, O., in the county of 
Clearmont, the birthplace of the illustrious Gen. 
U. S. Grant. His father, Houton Clarke, was a na- 
tive of Yorkshire, England, from which place, with 
his widowed mother, he came to America, locating 
in Virginia, the year preceding the outbreak of the 
Revolutionary war; here he grew to manhood when 
he removed to Ohio, being one of the early pioneers 
of that state. Of his family of three sons and four 
daughters, the subject of this sketch was the third 
child. He grew to manhood in the village of his 
birth where he obtained a good education in the 
common schools, and later excelled in the advanced 
studies of Halls Academy at Batavia, and before 
the age of 20 was a most successful teacher. When 
21 he joined his brother in conducting the Illinois 
State Journal at Shawneetown, the third paper es- 
tablished in that state. At this time he also edited 
and published a semi-monthly literary journal, 
called the "Ladies Amulet." His brother, with 
whom he had been associated, sold his interest to 
Maj. Clarke, who continued to manage and edit 
both journals for two years; owing to the malarial' 
district in that flat country and the confining and 
exacting duties of his Imsiness, his health failed, 
when he disposed of his newspaper ]>lant and en- 
gaged in purchasing horses, for which he found a 
market in the state of Alabama, and later in Vir- 
ginia, where he met 3Irs. A. E. S. Liggon. whose 
comjianionshiji engendered a mutual love and re- 
spect, which resulted in marriage in 18?.5. after 
which he settled on a plantation in Amelia county, 
that state. The fatal shadow, consumption, entered 
this happy and prosperous home in 184?>, its victim 
being the devoted wife. Maj. Clarke, in 1845 was 
married to the wife who survives him. Miss Lavenia 
Xunnelly, and in October of the same year, removed

ment of the civil war. Soon aflci' the war. in which 
he was e.\].osed to many perils at the hands of rob

he edited and published I he "Owen News" with 

marked linancial success. I!ut thiukint;- Jlissouri 
offered a more iuvitinj;- field for his ambitious and 
i^uergetic manhood, he sold the "News," and in the 
autumn of 1,S74 returned and established his home 
in Jefferson City, where he continued until his 
death, December 7, l!S«». He was the father of 
twelve children, none of whom are living, and only 
three reached maturity. Victoria died at the age 
■of 18; Marcus L., the eldest son, was a successful 
merchant at Castle Rock, Osage county, but re- 
moved at the commencement of the war, in 1861, to 
Owen county, Ky., where he continued the mercan- 
tile business most successfully, accumulating a 
large i)roperty which, at his death, he left to his 
father, having previously iilierally endowed a school 
in that state. Junius S.. a son of his second mar-

Bernard Rephlo in 18.jS, his widow took charge of 
the business and continued with the assistance of 
the son, Frank, (the subject of this sketch) who 
was then sixteen years of age. On the death of his 
mother in 1879, F. H. Rephlo succeeded to the busi- 
ness, which he has conducted most successfully 
since. In 1881 he erected the substantial building 
lie now occupies, corner Main and Walnut streets.

T. P.. PRICE. 

Thomas lienton Price was born at the old Price 
n)ansion in Jefferson City, ^May 111, 1S4!). He was a 
son of Gen. Thomas Lawson ]-rice. a wealthy and 
leading ni'^udier of one of the most ]iiominent and 
intluential families of the State. His mother. Ly- 
dia ISolton Price, survived his birth only a few 
days, which sad circumstance drew to the promis- 
ing boy the generous hearts of many mothers. His 
early childhood was sjient in the elegant and s]iaci- 
ous home of his birth, his play ground being the en- 
chanting hills and valleys surrounding the Capital 
City, where he aci|nired his early education. "His 
robust ])hysi(nie intensified his love of useful sports 
and made him a bold header, ever ready to esi)0use 
the cause of the weaker side an<l h.-roically con- 
test the chiim for nuistery with the bravest cham- 
pion."' .\t the age of i:i he was placed at Litz. the 
famous Moravian School near Lancaster, Pa., 
where he remained three years during his father's 
sojourn as a member of Congress in Washington. 
In ISfiT he was one of the trans-Continental Sur- 
veying ('orps. under the direction of Gen. Palmer. 
In this expedition through what was then the ^Vild 
West, he participated in skirmishes with Indians 
and reveled in the chase of the buffalo, being often

a brij^ht and receptive mind well stored with the 
rich ex]periences of travel and observation, which 
lie often put into well chosen words to the delight 
and instruction of his many friends. In the fall of 
1808 he entered the St. Louis I'ni versify, taking- a 
commercial course, to better qualify him to assume 
the exacting responsibilities of the management of 
Lis father's larue estate. In ISli!) he returned home

ness for rural life and an admiration for agricul- 
tural pursuits, which thi' large fortune inherited 
from his father enabled him to fully gratify, he pur- 
chased a large body of land in Pettis county, near 
Sweet Springs, giving it the name of ''Avondale," 
which, with well directed taste and prudent, but 
unstinted expenditure of money, he transformed into 
an ideal country home, surrounded by broad acres 
of rich land, divided into green pastures, tilled 
fields and downy meadows, upon which fed herds of 
registered cattle, and manv horses through whose

aiting fancy of the poet's dream. In the ])ersons 
'Mv. and Jlrs. Price, each of whom were highly

shrink from any duty required of a good citizen. He 
was a man of large wealth, which he used in vari- 
ous interests aside from that of his farming. He 
was President of the Gazette Printing Company. Se-

Adam Eoutszong, deceased, was born near Fred- 
erick City, Md., February 11, 183(i, from which place 
he came to Cole County with his parents in 1840, 
settling on a farm near Lohman. His education 
was in the public schools. At the age of 20 Mr. 
Routszong began working in the store of C. F. Loh- 
man, but in ISCO entered into partnership with A. 
W. Morrison, then Treasurer of the State of Mis- 
souri, and oiiened a store at Morrison in Gasconade 
County, continuing one year, when he sold out and 

came hack to Cole <'ounty, and dui'ing the Civil 
War served a considerable portion of the time with 
the State Militia. He was unable to join the regu- 
lar service, owing to being crijipled from boyhood by 
a white swelling, but did some hard service with 
the State troops in lighting the Bushwhackers and 
Kaiders. He served as first sergeant in Conijiaiiy 
F. !)th Provincial Regiment, enrolled Missouri Mili- 
tia from July 1, 1863 to November 30, 1S()3. After 
securing his discharge, he again went to work for 
5Ir. Lohman, and in the winter of 18G5 was elected 
by the House of Representatives to the office of 
folder. In iLiy, 18()r), he began merchandising in 
Cedar City, and in 1860 was appointed postmaster 
of that place. Lj 1807 he sold his store and bought 
a faiiu near Elston, where he remained until the 
spring of 1892. when he came to Jefferson City. 
Shortly after coming to Jefferson City Mr. Routs- 
zong was commissioned Notary Public by Governor 
Fi'ancis, and in the fall of 18iU was elected Justice 
of the Peace of Jefferson Township. To this posi- 
tion he was elected a second time in 1898. He 
was also elected Police Judge in 1897. and continued 

in this office until his death, which occurred Octo- 
ber u, 1899. His remains were laid to rest in the 
National Cemetery.

Artinir M. Hough was born in .Jefferson City. 
His parents, George W. and Mary C. Hough, came 
fi-om Loudon county. ^'iI■ginia, and located here in 
ISI'.S. He was educated in the public and private 
schools of Jefferson City, under the additional care- 
ful supervision and instruction of liis father, who 
was a man of unusual literary attainments. Upon 
leaving s<liool he began his business career, when 
but a youth, as salesman in one of the then largest 
general stores in Jeft'erson City, and a few years 
later sought to enlarge his experience by clerking 
on a lower Mississippi River steamboat, also making 
a trip or two to the head waters of the Missouri in 
the days when stearaboating on both these rivers 
was exceptionally interesting and remunerative. In 
1870 he decided to study law, and located in Kansas 
City, Missouri, reading in the office of his brother, 
Judge \Yarwick Hough, and meantime acting as as- 
sistant to the clerk of the Jackson County Circuit 
Court. He was admitted to the bar in 1872 at Kan 
sas City. During the 2()th and 27th General As-

the administiation of (lov. T. T. Crittenden. At the 
close of the administration he located permanently 
in this city and began the practice of his profession, 
in which he has since continued with gratifying 
success. ]\rr. Hough has taken a deep interest in 
every enterprise for the advancement of Jefferson 
City. He was one of the most intelligent and active 
workers in opposition to the removal of the Capital 
to Sedalia. and also took an active part in securing 
the erection of the new and well appointed court- 
house of Cole county. He is a prominent member of 
the various branches of the Masonic order, including

which to erect a public library building in Jefferson 
City. He was recently one of a committee of two 
appointed to wait upon Mr. Carnegie in ^ew York

Mr. Hough has been a number of times appointed 
Special Judge of the <'ircuit Court. He has always 
been a staunch Democrat, and. while not- a seeker 
of official ]iosition or ])olitical honors, he has taken

Ernest Simonsen, one of the most enterprising 
citizens of Jefferson City, was born near Halmstad, 
Sweden, November 30, 1858, where he attended the 
elementary school tintil 1875, when he was admitted 
to the Technical School at Orebro, Sweden, from 
which he graduated as mechanical engineer, class 
of 1S7S. He then engaged as mechanical draftsman 
at Halmstad's MekaniskaVerkstad, until 1881, when 
he left Sweden, and came to America, where he 
worked short periods for some of the leading ma- 
chine manufacturing firms of the East in the 
capacity of machinist, with a view of gaining more 
knowledge of the ways of his, adopted country. He 
engaged (1882), as mechanical draftsman with the 
Bridgc^liort Machine Tool \\'orks, at Bridgeport, 
Conn., which position he held two years, when he 
was made general su]ierintendent of the works, fill- 
ing this important position with marked ability. 
He resigned this position in 1888 to accept one as 
general superintendent of the Ingersoll-Sergeant 
Rock Drill Co., of New York, remaining only a short 
time (till May 1, 1889), when he made a trip to Eu- 
rope, where he visited his native home and attended 

the I'aris Exposition, returning to America the ft 
lowing October. 

He came to Jefferson City, in 1S89, and pii 
cliased what was kno^^n as the Jefferson City Fou 
dry, and continued the business under the nan 
of the Simonsen-Walther Mfg. Co. In Januar 
1894, he engaged with Mr. P. H. Loethen in scie 
tific heating, under the firm name of Jefferson Het 
ing Co., doing a general hot water and steam hef 
ing business, managing both companies until ISi: 
when he disposed of the foundry business in ord 
to give more attention to heating contracting. Tl 
company has been in existence six years and li 
successfully executed several large and ini]iorta 

heating contracts, the universal success of which 
largely due to Mr. Simonsen's ability as a heati 
engineer. Among the many important contracts t

Court House, four buildings of the Lincoln Ins 
tute, Missouri Pacific Passenger Station, State .' 
mory. Exchange Bank, Dallmeyer building, Rea

Dr. George Bickerton Winston was born in Gree 
county, Kentucky, June D, 18:22, and came to Mi 
souri with his father who settled in Cole county i 
1833. Here his life was mainly spent and his cha 
acter formed. He graduated from McDowell 
Medical College in St. Louis with the class of 184 
The same year he volunteered for the war wit 
Mexico, and was elected Second Lieutenant of Cor 
j)any F. On his return from California, after a fe 
years, his earnest, active life as physician coi 
menced. He married Miss Sarah F. Hough, of Je 
tersiin ("it\, in 1853, and at this time has three soi 
living: Dr. Warwick ^^■in.ston is in Shanghi 
China, practicing his profession, (dentistry); Georj 
Bickerton Winston is in Anaconda, Montana, e 
gaged in the practice of law, and Chas. A. Winsto 
Esq., of this city, residing with his mother. Mi 
Sarah F. Winston. Dr. Winston, in many respec 
was a remarkable man. Without being conscious 
it he was a born leader of men, and the end and ai 
of his ambition was to become useful and emine 
in the profession of his choice, and his reputati' 
was much more than local. The St. Louis ("ouri 
of Medicine says of him just after his death, Ju 
22, 1882: "So far as we have been able to asceita 
Dr. Winston (of Jefferson City, Mo. I was the fli 
to call attention to the value of gallinacrous peps 
in the treatment of atonic dyspe{i.sia. Though t 
idea has been extensively used of late, and wi 
excellent results under the name of "ingluvin," 
think due credit has not been given Dr. Winst 
for calling the attention of the profession to 
which he (lid in a jiaper read before the State Me 
cal Association a number of years ago." 

A more thoioughly conscientious jihysician nei 
lived. To the end of his long professional life he w 
a hard student. The writer, who knew him ir 
mately, once ventured to remark to him: "Doct 
what necessity is there for this ceaseless labor a 
study at your time of life?" with a look of astoni 
meiit nevei- to be forgott^en, he leplied: "My dear f 
I am under bonds to do it. When I offered my p

a policy good or bad. There was no half way rest- 
ing place for him. lie had little respect for com- 
promises, and only pity for that feebleness of char- 
acter which yielded up to its convictions rather than 
contend for them. 

While sometimes to strangers lie may have ap- 
peared a little austere, his friends knew him to be 
as gentle and sympathetic as a woman, and left to 
his own choice, he was more at home in a company 
of little children than on the nnirch as soldier and 
pioneer from the Missouri to the Kio Grande, or 
from the borders of the State to the gold fields of 

He remembered his services in the field and his 
experience in mining camps as periods in his life 
bringing ample opjiortunities for the study of men 
away from the restraints of civilization and the in- 
fluences of home and family, and regarded these 
divergencies as. time profitably spent. Face to face 
with danger and trying emergency he was as cool 
aud deliberate a man as lived. To illustrate: He 
was one of the unfortunate excursionists from St. 
Louis, in November, 1855, on the railway train that 
went d()wn with the Gasconade bridge. It was a 
fearful hour. A terrible storm was raging; black 
clouds had so obscured the sun that familar faces 
could scarely be recognized except by the flashes of 
lightning, which were blinding in their brightness; 
the thunder pealed as though the artillery of giants 
was in deadly confiict in the clouds. The i)ale faces 
of the dead and groans of the wounded and dying, 
were seen and heard on every side. ]>r. Winston, 
was himself severely wounded and suffering in- 
tensely from pain, faintness and loss of blood. He 
was at last discovered, sewing up and dressing his 
own wound, and when Dr. McDowell, his old surgi- 
cal instructor and friend, said: "Winston, let me 
attend to you," he replied: "Xo, T>octor; go where 
you may save a life, I do not think my wound is 
fatal," Unfortunately there are few such charac- 
ters. He was a man among men.

Mr. Mosby attended a country district school 
until thirteen years of aj^c when he bef-an working 
at the i)rinter's trade. At the age of seventeen he 

went to the State of California to follow that trade, 
but had worked there but a few months when 
family affairs called him home. In 1892 he was 
associated with his brotlu'r Bayard as editor and 
publisher of the I'nterriticd Democrat, at Linn, Mo., 
and during that great "free trade" campaign the 
tariff (jiiestion was discussed in his editorials with 
a degree of clearness that showed the writer to be 
perfect master of his subject. He wields a facile 
pen, and many of his essays are well known, a few 
of which may be briefly menlioui'd here. 

In IS'.m; his first essay on "Church Taxation" was 
published in the Xorth American Review. The 
bold stand taken in defense of the churches, and the 
great scliolai'ship and invincible logic which the 
author arrayed in d«'fense of his position, caused the 
article to be discussed, especially in religious cir- 
cles, througlmnt the rnited States. It was pub 

licly assailed in New V<irk by tiii^ Ri-v. Madison ( 
Pi'tcis. while the New York <'atholic News defende 
the aitiile in a fwo-c<ilumn edil(uial. It was tran 
lated inlo (ieiiiian and published in the .Vmeril 
and (ilher (Jernian pai)ers in the ^^■est, while in Bo 
ton the article was catalogued by one of the publ 
libi'arie.s and given a place among the archives ( 
the institution on the subject of taxation. 

In the same year his essay on "The FellowSe 
vant Mod line" appeared in the American Law R 
view. This article, in which the laws on the su 
ject. both of the several States and of the leadir 
Enro]iean iiati(Jiis were reviewed, attacked the f(

TMiile ^Ir. ^losby has always been a Democrat. 
he wiites his political creed with but a single word 
— "Justice;" and in thesei'viceof this [uinciple from 
which all good doctrines flow, his voice and pen 
have ever been enlisted. He made a number of 
speeches for the Democratic nominee during the 
special Congressional cainjjaign in Rland's old dis- 
trict in 18!)9. and has always done good work for 
the jirinciples in which he so sincerely believes. 


In the commercial world there is now developing 
in all the jirincipal cities large department stores, 
the result of the enterprise and the executive abili- 
ty of some one individual. We find these giant 
cf.niineicial establishments now' in all of the large 
cities. In riiiladelphia, for instance, John Wanna- 
nniker is the head of the list. In Chicago, Marshall 
Field; in St. Louis, Barr, Crawford and others; but 
<:ne would hardly exi)ect to find an establishment 
entitled to class proportionately with these great 
concerns in a village in Cole county, yet such is 
the case. The well appointed and managed general 
store of the Schubert-Weiler Mercantile Company at 
Kussellville is the largest and best appointed de- 
partment store in the county. Their ground floor 
sjiace (every foot of which is utilized to accommo- 
date their large and varied stock of merchandise, 
which includes everything needed by a human be-

he removed to Barnett. in ^lorgan county, where he

successful business the following six years. From 
there he removed to Kussellville in lS!t5. where he 
was one of the organizers of the Kussellville Ex-

(liwing which lime, however, he was also engaged in

William Fowler, writer of the Sketch Book in'ize 
ssay on "Cole County," was born on a farm near 
lickory Hill, Cole county, November S, 1883. His 
larents were Green C. and Artimitia L. (Henley) 
''owler, also natives of Cole countv. He lost his 

lother wlicu eight years of age. His father was 
gain married to Mrs. Eliza E. Karr (nee Amos). In 
rder to give his children a better education his 
ither (who is Assessor of Cole county) removed

John W. Schulle was born in Cole county on a 
irm near Taos, January 19, 1845. At the death of

City. He continued on the farm, where he wa& 
treated as an own son by his step-father, until 






twenty-four years old, when he entered the mill 
where he has continued since. By his close and in- 
telligent attention to business he soon acquired the 
knowledge necessary to assume largely the man- 
agement of the business, which, under his skillful 
direction, has grown to its present large propor- 
tions. Vi> to the time of the death of Mr. Dulle, in 
1885, the relations existing between lie and Mr. 
Dulle were such that he was known by those not in- 
timate with the cii'cunistances, as his own son, and, 
in fact, was known only by the name of Dulle. At 
this time, however, the milling interests were incor- 
p(uated. he becoming one of the principal stock-

Josepli Henry Green was born at Troy, Lincoln 
county. Mo., April 2, 184:2. His parents had 

I'ecently moved from Faucjueir county, Va., coming 
by land in the old Virginia wagons, with a large 
colony. His ancestors on his father's side were Eng- 
lish and Scotch and on his mother's, Welsh and 
German. His first schooling was in a log school 
house in Troy, I'rof. G, 0. Broadhead, now of Colum- 
bia, being his first teacher. Mr. Green came of old

who was born in IToti and died in 1853, was with 
Gen. Benedict Arnold in his memorable winter cam- 
I)aign north toward the Canadian border. He after- 
ward held the rank of Major under General Morgan 
and received a severe saber cut in the 
bead, at the battle of "The Cow- 
J'ens." He was a great friend and 
admirer of Gen. Washington, whom he 
followed to the grave — their planta- 
tions being about twenty-five miles 
ajjart. He was distantly related to 
Gen. Nathaniel Green, both coming 
from the same Shire in England. His 
mother was iSIiss Jane Martin of Cul- 
lie]i])er county, Va. His grandfather, 
llezekiah Martin, was also a Revolu- 
tionary soldier, serving in "Light 
Horse Harry" Lee's Legion of Virginia 
Ca\alry. At the breaking out of the 
Civil War, the subject of this sketch 
was teaching school in West Prairie, 
-^1 ^-''"•■"lii county, one of his pupils be- 
" ing Elisha Robinson, who was later 

Circuit Judge in Northeast Missouri 
and is now a prominent railroad attorney in Kan- 
sas City. On a Friday afternoon (ISCl), he dis- 
missed his school expecting to open the following 
jMonday as usual. Borrowing a horse he rode to 
Troy ; on his arrival found Gov. Jackson's proclama- 
tion calling for troops. He was already enrolled as 
a member of Capt. Eppie Sydnor's Co. He sent his 
horse back to its owner, and with about TOO others, 
under Capt. Broda Hull, Capt. George Carter and 
Cajit. John Q. Burbrid'ge, of Pike Co., started for 
Jefferson City. After two days' march they reached 
the home of Gen. Jeff Jones in Callaway county, 
where, hearing of their approach, the whole neigh- 
borhood had gathered and prepared a feast of boiled 
ham, chicken, old fashioned Missouri corn light bread 
and good coffee. After reaching the I\Iissonri River 
they were unable to cross, as Gen. Lyon had just 
fought the battle of Boonville and had the Missouri 
River guarded. The command, then under Gen. Tom 
Harris and Col. Burbridge, broke up into squads. 
Young Green with his stejibrother, James Cartel', 
worked their way south, and on Sept. 3, 18C1, joined

New Madrid, Mo. The intrepid John S. Bowen was 
Colonel, and was aftcrwiird Major-General. During 
the long and tragiu contliet following, Mr. Green 
was in a number of the great battles between the 
North and South. He was wounded at the battle of 
Champion Hill and his stej) brother, James Carter, 
was jciilcd at the same time. He was discharged on 

account of disaliility, coming across the river where 
he was commissioned Colonel by Gen. Price and sent 
to Missouri to recruit. He was cajjtured, and with 
Col. Burbridge, Gen. Jeff. Thomson and others, taken 
to Gratiot Street Prison, then to Johnson Island and 
exchanged. After the surrender at the close of the 
war he went to Old Mexico. Returning, he stopped 
at Rolla for a time with his brother, James A. Green, 
now of Cuba. Coming to Jefferson City in 1867, he 
engaged in the fire insurance business, as general 
agent for the Farmei's' and Merchants' Hisurance 
Co. After two years he became one of the promoters 
of the Life Association of America, in which he did 
a large business, organizing special boards in dif- 
ferent parts of the State, and engaged in the general 
real estate business at Sedalia, in which he con- 
tinued some 20 years, 10 years of the time he was 
general land agent of the M., K. & T. Railroad, a 
connection which resulted in his handling large 
bodies of land in the states of Kansas and Texas.

congenial and devoted wife. He was united in mar- 
liage to Miss Emma McHenry (a lady of culture 
and charming personality), a sister of his former 
wife, January 14, 1890. Mr. Green is a member of 
the Presbyterian church, also of the Maccabees, and 
was Door-Keeper of the House — 28tli General As- 
sembly (1875). He has been one of the most active 
real estate men in the State, his operations in lands

Benjamin Franklin Oliver, the popular landscape 
artist and photographer of Jefferson City, was born 
on a farm in Callaway county, six miles northeast of 
Jefferson City, April 14, 1858. Here he was raised 
and educated in the nearby schools. At sixteen he 
a]s])renticed himself to a photographer at Shelby- 
ville. 111. Soon after he came to Jefferson City, and, 
after a few months with Mr. Suden, he traveled with 
a portable gallery. He spent one year at Sweet 
Springs, and later made his headquarters at Butler, 
Bates county. From here he removed to Sedalia,. 
where he remained with the famous artist, Latour, 
three years, when he removed to Kansas City and 
engaged in the work of enlarging portraits and sell- 
ing the material incident to that business. In this 
work he traveled over a large portion of Kansas 
and Nebraska, later locating at Fulton, Mo., where 
he remained seven years, engaging in the work of 
his art. While at Fulton he made the many fine 
views for the State, which they used in their ex- 
hibit at the World's Fair at Chicago. In 1894 he 
removed his headquarters to Jett'erson City, where 
he has continued and makes frequent extended tours- 
through the country, taking views of landscapes, 
etc. He was married in Kansas City, 1884, to Miss: 
Carrie Hardin, who is the mother of his six children, 
all of whom are at home. His widowed mother also 
makes her home with him, and, in addition to his 
other duties, he looks after her farm, which is across

George W. Hough, was born in Loudon County, 
X'irginia, Ajiril 17, ISdS, and was married to Miss 
Mary C. Shawen, at Waterford, Virginia, March 
24, 1833. His earlier ancestor was John Hough, 
who removed from Bin-ks County, Pennsylvania, to 
Loudon County, \'a.. about the year 1750, and there 
married Sarah Janney. whose family had also moved 
Ironi liucks County. IN'unsylvania, and who was 
great auni to John .lanney. President of the A'ir- 
ginia Secession Conxcntion of ISfil. John Hough 
was a grandson of Richard Hough who came from 
Cheshire, England, to I'ennsylvania under the au- 
sjtices of William Penn, in the shiji "Endeavor,"' 
landing in Philadelphia in 1(j38. 

In 1837 Mr. Hough moved to St. Louis County, 
Missouri, bringing with him a stock of goods, which 
he disposed of in St. Louis. In 1838 he moved to 
Jefferson City, where he was engaged in merchan- 
dising until the year 1854, when he retired from 
business pursuits. 

For forty years, Mv. Hough was a man of 
marked prominence and influence not only in this 
locality, but. throughout the State. It is no idle 
compliment to say that during the decade preced- 
ing the war his was considered the leading mind 
in his i)arty, and that he did more to shape the 
policy and defend the principles of the Democratic 
side than any other member of the organization. 

He was fond of political excitement and dis- 
cussions, but in no sense a seeker of off'ice. His 
acknowledged abilities, rather than a desire for 
notoriety, forced him jirominently before the public 
on occasions when he would, if his own wishes had 
been consulted, have remained in the background. 

In 1842-3 he represented Cole County in the 
General Assemlily with marked ability. In 1844 
he took an active part in the organization of "The 
Missouri Historical and l'hilosoi)hical Society," 
which was afterwards incorporated by an act of the 
General Assembly of ]\lissouri, apjiroved ?^ebruary 
27, 1845. 

He was one of the charter members of the soci- 
ety and its Treasurer for a number of years. This 
s-ociety included in its list of members many of the 
most prominent men of the State. In 1854 he 
^\as the candidate of the Democratic party for 
Congress and engaged actively in the political con- 
troversies of the dav, which were then of a very

great contest of ISCl to ISfio. 

In conjiHution with Judge William B. Napton 
and Judge A\'illiani Scott, then on the Supreme 
bench of Missouri, and Judge Carby Wells of Ma- 
rion county, Mr. Hough participated in fraiuiug the 
famous "Jackson Kesolutions" introduced by Clai- 
bourne P. Jackson, afterwards (lovernor, in the 
Missouri Legislature in 1849, which resolutions oc- 
casioned the celebrated ajipeal of ('ol. Thomas H. 
Benton from the instructions of the Legislature to 
the people of Missouri. Those resolutions looked 
forward to a conflict lietween the Northern and 
Southern States, and pledged Missouri to a co-oper- 
ation with her sister States of the South. The 
leading Democrats of Missouri were then known as 
Calhoun Democrats, chief among them being David 
R. Atchison, William B. Napton, James S. Green, 
Carby Wells. Claibourne F. .lackson and (leorge ^^'. 
Hough, and the bitter personal hostility existing be- 
tween Calhoun and Benton was much intensified by 
these resolutions, the authorship of which ("ol. Ben- 
ton attributed to (/alhoun. The result of the canvass 
was Col. Benton's retirement from the United 
States Senate. 

Soon after making his unsuccessful canvass for 
Congress in 1854 Mr. Hough waS appointed by Gov. 
Sterling Price a member of the Board of I'ublic 
Works of Missouri, of which board he was Presi- 
dent, which was then cliarged with the supervision 
of all the railroads in the State to which State aid 
had been granted. At the general election in 18li0 
he was elected to the same office; while a member 
of this Board he devoted his entire time to the pub- 
lic interests in this connection and rendered valu- 
able service in conserving the interests of the State 
in these various railroad enterprises. It was ad- 
mitted, at the time, that he would have succeeded 
Gov. Jackson as Governor of Missouri, but for the 
breaking out of the Civil War. Mr. Hougli was 
stronger in the convention of 1860 than was Gov. 
Jackson and could have liad the nomination if he 
had contended for it, but lie yielded to the friends 
of the nominee, upon the assurances that he should 
have no opposition for tlie next term. During the 
campaign of lS(i() he made a thorough canvass of 
the State with Governor Jackson, and liis discus- 
sions of State and National affairs, in that canvass, 
were considered, by all who heard them, the ablest 
ever delivered on that side by any man in the 
State. His reports on railroad matters attracted 
general attention and elicited the highest compli- 
ments for the fairness and ability with which he 
presented the facts. 

He was fre(iuenll\' lendei-cd jiosilious in the 
Government service, among them Second Auditor 
of the Treasury, which would hav(> necessitated his 
removal to the National <"a[)ital, but declined to 
accept such appointment. He was for a time Cura- 
tor of the ^lissouri T^niversity, and in conjunction 
with Dr. Elliot of St. Louis, he did much to benefit 
that institution. He contributed largely to the 
formation of tlie legislation essential to the devel- 
ojunent of the resources of the State. He had a 
knowledge of the political history of the country 
linsurpased by that of any one in the State, and a 
superior knowledge also of general history, consti- 
tutional law, literature and the science of govern- 
ment. Mr. Hough died February IJi, 1878. 

He has six children living: Mrs. Dr. George B. 
^^'inston, Judge ^Varwick Hough, Mrs. John P.

j'ith the view of practicing law; removing to Kansas, 
lear Salina, he was the following five years engaged 
onsecutively in the practice of law, in teaching, 
arming, sheep and cattle raising. In 1804 he re-

devoted companion he also had to perform the sad 
duty of following to the grave in September, 1890. 
Mr. Parker, notwithstanding his large experience 
and eventful history, is still in. the prime of life. 
His ojtportunities for learning the shoe business, 
coupled with his natural talent for making them, 
(having now in his possession one he made complete 
when nine years of age) he has used to good purpose, 
as the factory of which he is President is running 
full time, giving employment to 23(1 people, and is 
now over (i5,(MI() pairs short in filling orders. The 
(ompany manufactures exclusively workingmen's.

Mr. Kroeger's early education was in the com- 
non schools of Germany, being completed in the 
ireat practical school found in the printing offices, 
lis being in those of Kansas City and St. Louis. He 
s a most worthv citizen of Jefferson Citv, to which 

he has givi'ii his unswerving loyally during more 
than one-third of a century of his residence here. 
By his personal correspondence and through his 
paper he secured the active opposition of the Ger- 
man 4jai)ers throughout the. State to the Capital re- 
moval, the evidence being very clear that the Ger- 
mans throughout the State almost without excep- 
tion voted against the movement. 

His paper has been a welcome visitor in the 
homes of the thrifty German families of Jefferson 
City and Cole county for nearly a quarter of a cen- 
tury, and its columns have been kept so clean and 
forceful in the presentation of everything that it is 
regarded as the oracle largely influencing the 
thoughts and actions of the German element 
throughout the citv and countv.
