PREFACE 



The object of this Guide is to present in condensed form 
reliable information regarding Chicago 's chief points and 
objects of interest, and to provide directions for the guidance 
of the stranger in his trips about the city. 

For the benefit of the tourist considerable space is devoted 
to facts about theaters and other places of amusement, and 
descriptions of the most attractive sights and scenes of the 
city. Special attention is also given to a series of automobile 
rides which afford an excellent method of seeing the finest 
parts of Chicago in the shortest time and to the best advan- 
tage. Another feature of interest is a trip through the bus- 
iness section of the metropolis; directions are given whereby 
the stranger may view the city's main public buildings and 
towering skyscrapers quickly and completely. 

The work contains a brief but accurate account of Chi- 
cago's street car system, by means of which the visitor may 
ascertain for himself how to reach any desired point. In 
order to popularize the Guide with all classes, not only are 
the first-class hotels given but also the more popular cheaper 
houses. The classified list of churches is prefaced by a brief 
enumeration of such houses of worship as are especially noted 
for the beauty of their service, or the oratory of their 
preachers. These are a few of the features of this "Guide 
of Guides."

CHICAGO. ILL. 

The stranger entering Chicago, the second largest city in 
the United States (population, 2,241,000), should be prepared 
for big things. Chicago is built solid, or very nearly so, 
for more than fifteen miles north and south, and several 
miles east and west. To one unaccustomed to large cities 
the noise, incident to the enormous traffic on the down-town 
streets, supplemented by the roar of the elevated trains, 
will be confusing and bewildering. What may be fairly 
termed the heart of the city lies within the district bounded 
on the west and north by the Chicago Kiver, the east by the 
lake and south by Harrison Street. The city is divided into 
four great sections, known as the down town, the north side, 
the west side, and the south side. The great retail thorough- 
fare of the down town district is State Street; the principal 
retail streets of the west side are INIadison and Halsted, the 
latter being also one of the great arteries of traffic between 
the south and north sides. The principal retail streets on 
the north side might perhaps be said to be North Clark, 
Wells and Division Streets. On the south side there are 
too many to attempt to name them, but Halsted, State and 
Cottage Grove Avenue head the list. One can live in Chi- 
cago for weeks, months and even years and not know all, 
or perhaps but very few sections of the city. It is commonly 
said, and is quite true, that in large cities a family more 
often than not does not know its next door neighbor, though 
they live side by side for months. There are certain parts 
of the city which should be avoided, especially after night, 
since they are the sections where thugs abound, and where 
what is commonly termed *'The Red Light '* is in full opera- 
tion. Perhaps the worst place in the city is a section 
bounded by Van Buren Street on the north. State Street on 
the east, Polk street on the south, and La Salle Street on 
the west. This part of the city is exceedingly dangerous, 
especially the street known as Custom House Place. The 
man who visits this territory after night and displays 
money is nothing short of a fool, and the chances are about 
five to one that "the fool and his money will be soon 
parted"; also some sections of the south side, notably the 
district in and about Twenty-second and State Street; houseg 

17

of ill fame abound in this section, and it is one to be 
avoided. It may, however, in justice be said that unless one 
looks exceptionally green, one may go anywhere in any citj 
and by keeping his money out of sight and attending 
strictly to his own business will meet with no mishap. Those 
who get robbed or who meet with other similar misadven- 
tures, are almost invariably those who do one of two things, 
i. e., display money or evince undue curiosity in other peo- 
ple's affairs. 

The first thing that will be required will, of course, be f 
stopping place. The best plan for the stranger is to appl„ 
either to the Information Bureau, which will be found i 
all the larger depots, or make inquiries of the depot police 
man, whose duty is to look after strangers, as to the stree 
car one should take to reach a given locality. Ther 
are hundreds upon hundreds of hotels in this grea 
city, good, bad and indifferent, but houses on th- 
American Flan in the heart of the city are very few. 
The "better way in any event is to go to an European hotel 
since if one intends to go about the city it will be imprae 
tieal to return to the hotel for meals.

Railway Ticket Offices. 

There are a great many up town railway ticket offices in 
Chicago. Nearly all of them are located in the neighborhood 
)f the corner of Clark and Adams Streets. Go into any of- 
iee there and inquire for the one you want, and it will not 
)e far away. 

Legal Hack Rates. 

This schedule must be kept posted up in the vehicle, and 
jvery failure therein will result in immediate and final 
revocation of license. 

Owing to many complaints of overcharging by drivers of 



CHICAGO, ILL. 23 

coaches, cabs and other vehicles for the conveyance of pas- 
sengers for hire, it is the earnest purpose of the City Author- 
ities to check and wipe out such abuses. Upon complaint 
and proof submitted to the Chief of Police of unjust treat- 
ment of the public, or the violation of the City Ordinances, 
by the driver of any public vehicle, the license of such 
driver will be promptly revoked and not re-issued. 

Complaint made to any police officer will receive prompt 
and courteous attention, and will be immediately reported 
to the Chief of Police. If the public will aid the authorities 
by reporting all cases of overcharge or unjust treatment, the 
evils complained of can be rectified^ otherwise not. Take 
cab number and report by 'phone or in person to police 
headquarters.

CHICAGO'S LARGEST AND FINEST BXnLDINGS. 

A Trip Through the Business Section. 

To see the sky seraper section of tlie city, quickly and 
fairly completely, with a miuimum amount of effort, pro- 
ceed as follows: Go to the Auditorium Hotel, corner Mich- 
igan Ave. and Congress St., pass through the beautiful lobby 
of both the Auditorium and Auditorium Annex, which lies 
across the street south, after which walk up Congress St. 
two blocks to State, where, on the corner (right) enter the 
great Siegel-Cooper Department Store, passing through it 
on the main floor to Van Buren St., crossing Van Buren and 
entering the department store of A. M. Rothschild. These 
are two of Chicago's mammoth retail establishments and 
well worth inspection. Emerging at the north end of Koths- 
child's, we will be on State St., near Jackson Blvd. Turn- 
ing east and passing under the elevated tracks, we see 
(right) the ten story Cable Building with the Illinois The- 
atre, one of Chicago's best, adjoining. Corner of Michigan 
Ave. (left) is the beautiful new 17-story Railway Building. 
The court of this building is very handsome. We will enter 
it on Jackson, pass through and out on Michigan Ave. Turn- 
ing north (left) on Michigan we see (right) the Chicago Art 
Institute, an isolated building in the Greek style. It con- 
tains (information furnished by W. M. R. French, director) 
valuable collections of paintings, sculpture and other ob- 
jects of art, as well as the largfcst and most comprehensive 
art school in America. Each object in the collection is pro- 
vided with an explanatory label. The collections are open 
daily 9 to 5; Sundays 1 to 5. Admission 25c; free Wednes- 
days, Saturdays and Sundays. About 7,000,000 people visit 
and examine the collections annually. Catalogue 15c. Di- 
rector, W. M. R. French. The basement floor is devoted to 
school and work rooms. The main floor rooms 1, 5, 8, 10, 12 
and 14, contain the Elbridge G. Hall collection of Ancient 
and Modern Sculpture Casts with a few original modern 
works in rooms 12 and 37. Room 6 contains the Higinbotham 
collection of Naples bronzes; room 11, old French sculpture; 
room 13, medical instruments; room 15, a small but good 
collection of Scarabali beads and other Egyptian antiquities, 
also Greek vases, glass and terracotta; room 16 oil paint- 
ings. Room 20 is Blackstone Hall, a gallery of 200 feet in 
length, containing the grand Blackstone collection of archi- 
tecture casts chiefly of French subjects. Room 29, Reyerson 
Library of Fine Arts; on the top floor are paintings, textiles 
and Jfc(panese objects. Room 38, to right at head of stairs^ 



30 CHICAGO, ILL. 

contains Field's collection of paintings, chiefly of the Bar- 
bizon School. Eoom 39, Stickney room, modern paintings; 
room 40, Albert A. Hunger's collection of modern paint- 
ings; room 41, The Niekerson collection of Japanese bronzes, 
porcelain, etc. Eoom 42, Niekerson 's collection of judes, 
crystals, also of modern paintings; room 44, Niekerson 's col- 
lection of water colors and engravings; rooms 43 and 45, 
antiquarian collection of textile and decorative art; room 
32 (left side of stair) contains the most valuable works of 
the Institute; room 31, modern paintings; room 33, Arundel 
reproductions, medals, etc.; room 29, Century reproductions; 
rooms 25-30, occupied by temporary exhibitions, varied from 
time to time. The above will give an idea of the magnitude 
and importance of these collections of the works of the 
best artists, past and present. It is worth your while to 
spend all the time you can spare here. 

Passing on north on Michigan Ave., the building with 
the tower (left) is the Montgomery Ward & Company's 
Store, the largest strictly mail order retail house in the 
world. They sell no goods in the city. Opposite (right) is 
the temporary postoffice. The postofiice of Chicago employs 
about 9,000 men, and has 26 carrier sub-stations, and many 
drug store money order stations. Stamps sold in nearly all 
drug stores. Opposite (left), corner Washington St. and 
Michigan Ave., is the Chicago Public Library, an immense, 
massive building in the Eoman classic style. The interior 
is finished in decorated white marble and is very beautiful. 
It has 110,000 square feet of floor space, 300,000 volumes, 
covering every conceivable subject, and 50,000 unbound 
pamphlets. There are. special collections of works in for- 
eign languages. The Eeading and Eefereuce rooms are open 
9 a. m. to 10 p. m.; Circulating Department, 9 a. m. to 6 
p. m. Sunday, 9 a. m. to 6 p. m. There are several branch 
distributing stations, but only one Branch Library, it being 
located in the T. B. Blackstone Building, South Side. This 
building is small, but is very beautiful, being built of 
white granite and Italian marble at a cost of over $260,000. 
The interior decorations are also very handsome. The build- 
ing is worthy of a visit. Turning west (left) on Washington, 
passing under the elevated tracks, we see (left) the new 
Otto Young 18-story building, and (right) the immense de- 
partment store of Marshall Field, the largest retail store in 
Chicago, covering an entire city block, 15 stories in height. 
To show the magnitude of this gigantic mercantile enter- 
prise, we append the list of the accommodations furnished 
patrons in the reading and rest rooms on the third floor. 
Here will be found reading and writing room for men and 
women, easy chairs, davenports, writing desks supplied with 



CHICAGO, ILL. 31 

stationery; Chicago, Milwaukee, St. Paul, St. Louis, Minne- 
apolis and Detroit daily papers; telephone booths; cab and 
messenger calls; railway and steamship guides; tickets for 
all theatres on sale; parcels wrapped and checked; sten- 
ographer (services free); general information bureau; Pull- 
man car reservations; postal souvenir cards; stamps, money 
orders and registry; telegraph office; library and writing 
room for women only; library of standard books; medical 
rooms fitted up with every convenience for slight or serious 
accident (professional services); reading room for women and 
children; easy chairs and couches; women's lavatory, fitted 
with every modern convenience, electric heaters for curl- 
ing irons, dressing tables, etc. All the above is on a luxuri- 
ous scale, and all free. You may form some idea of what 
the business is which maintains such an institution, open to 
nil whether they are a customer or not. An inspection of 
this gigantic store will be an eye opener to those not ac- 
customed to the immense mercantile institutions of our great 
cities. Coming out of Marshall Field's by the door we 
enter, we are on the cor. of Washington and State, and see 
on the opposite cor. (left) the Columbus Memorial Building, 

13 stories, while diagonally across is the Reliance Building, 

14 stories; opposite corner (right) the Stewart Build- 
ing, 12 stories; all the latter three being practically 
filled with doctors and dentists. This is •'Medico" corner 
of Chicago. Turning south (left) on State Street, and walk- 
ing one block, we find on corner (left) Mandel's Department 
Store, on opposite corner (left) is the 15 story Carson, Pirie, 
Scott Building; opposite corner (right) is the 15 story Cham- 
plain Building; opposite corner diagonally the new 16-story 
Chicago Savings Bank Building. Looking up Madison (right) 
from this corner, we see (left) McVicker's Theatre Build- 
ing, six stories, and half a block away the 17-story Tribune 
Building adjoining. This building occupies the site of the 
first school house owned by the city (see p. 63). Retracing 
our steps north on State Street a block to Marshall Field's 
store, vre turn west (left) and waUdng two blocks we reach 
the City Hall and County Buildings, a very large building, 
occupying an entire city block, the west half containing the 
city offices and the east half the offices of the county. At 
the south end of the building is the Drake Fountain, with a 
statue of Columbus. This building cost five million dollars. 
At the further corner of the City Hall we will see (left) 
the Chamber of Commerce Building, 13 stories, diagonally 
across the Stock Exchange Building, 13 stories. Turning 
south (left) on La Salle Street, one block to Madison on 
corner (left) the 13-story Tacoma Building of red brick. 
Half a block further on (left) the 11-story Association 



32 CHICAGO, ILL. 

Building, the home of the Chicago Y. M. C. A.; adjoining 
across the court (left) the 10-story National Life Building 
of gray cut stone, with red granite base, an immense struc- 
ture; adjoining cor. Monroe Street (left) the magnificent 
14-story New York Life Building of gray stone; diagonally 
across cor. is the red brick, brown stone trimmed Woman's 
Temple, 12 stories. The W. C. T. U. has some interest in 
this building, though I have been unable to ascertain exactly 
v/hat. One block further on, on cor. (left) the 12-story 
Home Insurance Building, of red granite base, red brick 
superstructure; opposite corner (left) the unique 11-story 
Rookery Building, massively built, granite base, red brick 
superstructure, with ornamental stone trimmings, very hand- 
some. This building has a beautiful glass covered interior 
court. Opposite (right) is the massive building of the 
Eand-McNally Publishing Company, the largest publishing 
house in the world. Farther on (short block) corner (left) 
is the building of the Illinois Trust & Savings Bank, in the 
Corintliian Greek style. The interior is an open court, 
vaulted and supported by pillars of skagliola. The color 
scheme of this court is in yellow and is very beautiful. The 
interior of the building is worth a visit. Opposite is the 12- 
story Mailers Building, and the nine-story Gaff and Counsel- 
man Buildings. We are now at the Board of Trade Build- 
ing, which blocks the street. This is a large stone structure 
of rather gloomy style of architecture. The galleries of the 
Board of Trade are open to the public, and the pit scene is 
one of the wildest imaginable, even surpassing that of the 
New York Board of Trade. It is interesting to sit in the 
gallery and watch the men on the floor of the pit who are 
for the time being transformed into veritable maniacs. Turn- 
ing to the east (left) on Jackson Blvd. on corner (right) 
is the 11-story Western Union Telegraph Building. One 
block farther we see the granite PostofUce Building, cov- 
ering an entire city block. The cost of t'lis building was 
$4,757,000. It is of gray granite, fire-proof throughout, eight 
or nine stories in height and in the Greek style of archi- 
tecture. Notwithstanding the fact that it is surrounded by 
towering buildings, which necessarily detract from its 
grandeur and impressiveness, this superb structure is an 
architectural triumph. It was commenced in 1897 and com- 
pleted in 1905. A system of pneumatic tubes runs to the 
principal depots and carrier stations, by which the mail is 
quickly conveyed to these points. Opposite the southeast 
corner of this building (right) is the immense Monadnock 
Building, the largest office building in the city, in which 
over 7,000 people are employed. Looking up and 
down Dearborn street, at this corner, we see both to the 



CHICAGO, ILL. 33 

light and left immense sky scrapers some 18 stories in 
height, and if we care to continue further can pass either 
up or down Dearborn Street and inspect them; however, 
by the time we have made the trip above outlined I think 
we will have seen enough to satisfy us, at least for one trip 
and will be weary enough to return to the hotel for a rest. 

The Street Car Lines. 

Chicago is traversed by an immense system of street rail- 
way, both elevated and surface, covering many hundreds of 
miles. The surface car fare is 5 cents and usually transfers 
are given over cross lines unless they are owned by a dif- 
ferent company; in most cases you can transfer from a 
transfer. The system is so vast that I will not attempt any 
complete description. The main south side surface lines are 
the Cottage Grove Cable, which leaves the down town section 
on Wabash Ave. This line passes the Coliseum, runs on 
Wabash Ave. to 22nd St.^ east on 22nd to Cottage Grove, 
south on Cottage Grove to 71st St. and Oakwood Ceme- 
tery; passes Washington Park, Washington Park Race Track 
and Sans Souci. The State Street line (cable) runs out 
State St. to 63rd, connecting with electric to 79th. The 
Wentworth Ave. line (electric), which leaves the down town 
section on Clark St., runs south on Wentworth to 79th. Take 
a 79th St. car to go to the end. The fare on these lines is 
5 cents, transfers east or west. The principal west side lines 
are the Madison St. cable, which runs west on Madison St. 
to Garfield Park; the 12th St. line, which leaves the down 
town section on Van Buren St., corner State, runs west sev- 
eral miles on 12th St., transfers north and south are given. 
The Harrison St. electric, which leaves down town on Adams 
St., corner State, runs west several miles on Harrison; trans- 
fers north and south. Clybourn Ave., which leaves down 
town on Clark St., corner Randolph, runs west several miles 
on Clybourn Ave., transfers north and south. Ogden Ave. 
electric, which leaves down town on Lake St., runs west 
to Douglas Park, transfers north and south. 

North Side Lines — The North Clark St. line (cable) leaves 
down town, corner La Salle and Randolph, runs out several 
miles on North Clark St., transfers east and west. The 
Milwaukee Ave. line (cable) leaves down town on Washing- 
ton, runs northwest on Milwaukee Ave. There are innumer- 
able other lines and branches of the system, but these are 
the main trunk lines leaving the down town section, and 
reach by transfer almost all parts of the city. The Halsted 
Street line on the west side, running north and south on 
Halsted St., is the main artery between the north, south and 
west sides; the traffic on this line is enormous. To those 



34 CHICAGO, ILL. 

who desire to take street car rides, the Wentworth Ave. and 
Ogden Ave. lines have large and very comfortable ears, and 
a ride over these lines will show you an immense area of 
the city. 

The Cottage Grove Ave. line cannot be commended as a 
comfortable line to ride on, yet it runs through some of the 
better residence sections of the city and reaches many 
points of interest, among them the Sans Souci Park, Wash- 
ington Park and Oakwood Cemetery. The Madison St. line 
takes one out to the beautiful Garfield Park, at the farther 
end of which are several very nice pavilions. 
The Elevated Street By. System. 

The elevated trains of all the three systems, namely, the 
Metropolitan, Northwestern and South side, pass over the 
tracks of what is known as the Union Loop, which is the 
general turn table and distributing point for the down town 
section. Beginning at Van Buren St. and Wabash Ave. the 
loop extends north on Wabash to Lake St., seven blocks, 
thence west five blocks to Fifth Ave., tlience south seven 
blocks to Van Buren St., thence east five blocks to a point 
of starting. All trains of the three systems can be boarded 
at any of the stations on the loop. At the Van Buren and 
Wabash corner of the Loop, the South Side **L" turns 
south (right) and runs to 63rd St., and to the east (left) 
to Stony Island, adjacent to Jackson Park. The South Side 
**L" can be taken to any point on State Street out as far 
as 40th St. It can also be taken to any of the following 
points, though you will be obliged to walk the distance given 
after the name or pay another fare on the surface car. 
Washington Park, three blocks; Sans Souci, three blocks. The 
end of the line is at the 63rd St. entrance to Jackson Park. 
The Northwestern comprises the Northwestern and Lake St. 
lines. The Lake St. line reaches Garfield Park, get off at 
Homan Ave. It also reaches the suburbs of Austin and Oak 
Park. The line extends out several miles on Lake St. The 
Northwestern lines reach Bismarck Garden, on Halsted and 
Grace; leave train at Grace St., walk about three blocks 
east (right). Lincoln Park, leave train at Sedgwick, walk 
about three blocks; Graceland Cemetery, and Edgewater.

How to Use the Chicago Telephone. 

There are two telephone directories, viz.: The regular 
alphabetical list and the ** classified" business directory. 
To find the name of an individual take the alphabetical list. 
To find a business such as, for instance the Kinsley res- 
taurant, take the classified directory and look under the 
head of restaurants. The businesses are arranged alpha- 
betically in the classified directory, so that *' Architects " 
would be under ''A" in the front part of the book, while 
Restaurants would be well tov/ard the back. Have a nickel 



CHICAGO, ILL. 39 

ready before you take the receiver off the hook. Some phones 
require a silver dime to operate them. Place the receiver 
to your ear and when Central answers give the number you 
want, drop your nickel and wait until your party answers. 
If you don't get the connection you call for, the nickel 
must be returned to you. 

Some of the Points of Special Interest. 

Union Stock Yards. 

One of the main points of interest to the visitor is the 
Union Stock Yards, 5^2 miles south of the down town 
district. Take either the State St. or Wentworth Ave. car 
from down town and transfer on 39th St. west, transfer from 
this car to Halsted south, which takes you to the main 
entrance, at 41st and Halsted; or take Halsted St. ear from 
west side, asking for transfer south, which will take you to 
entrance. You will see a sign, "Visitors' entrance"; enter 
waiting room here and wait for a guide (charge for guide 
2oe). You can then, under his pilotage, inspect both the 
yards and the immense packing houses which are within the 
yards. The capacity of the yards is about 75,000 cattle, 
300,000 hogs, 25,000 sheep and 6,000 horses. Some idea of 
the magnitude of this institution will be gained from a glance 
at the following figures. Total miles of railroad track, 300; 
total miles of street within yards, 25; total area of yards, 
640 acres; number of pens, 13,000; number of covered or 
double decked pens, 8,500; 625 chutes, 25,000 gates, 450 com- 
mission and other offices. Capacity of water plant, 8,000,000 
gallons per day; capacity of reservoir, 10,000j000 gallons; 
capacity of water tower, 30,000 gallons; water used, 7,900,000 
gallons per day; number of miles of water pipe, 90; number 
of miles of sewer pipe, 50; number of miles of water 
troughs, 25; number of water faucets, 10,000; six artesian 
wells with an average depth of 250 feet; 50 m.iles of electric 
wire in service; 250 arc lamps; 8,000 incandescent lights. 
Total number of cattle received in 1903, 3,432,483. Total 
number of calves received same year, 1903, 271,000; total 
number of hogs 1903, 7,325,923; total number of sheep 1903, 
4,582,750; total number of horses, 1,603,000, and total num- 
ber of cars, 302,915; total number of animals of all kinds 
received 1903, 15,713,515. (Note — The foregoing figures 
were taken from the books of the Stock Yards Co., and are 
therefore correct.) A very large percentage of this enor- 
mous number of animals is slaughtered in the great packing 
houses within the Yards. The methods of killing are very 
expeditious and can be viewed if one's nerves are strong 
enough to stand the sight of oceans of blood. The horse 



40 CHICAGO, ILL. 

market is 530 feet by 185 feet, and seats approximately 
4,000 persons. It takes about thirty locomotives to handle 
the business of the Yards, and many thousands of men are 
employed in the yards and the packing houses within their 
limits. There is a bank, a hotel and newspaper; in fact, this 
immense institution is a city within itself. Armour & Co. 
alone employ about 8,500 men. The Yards are well worthy 
of a visit, the best time being in the morning after nine 
o'clock. There is no charge except 25c for the guide, which 
will include an inspection of the Yards and the packing 
houses as well. 

University of Chicago— Fifty-seventh St., near Woodlawn 
Are. Take Illinois Central Ey. The University consists of 
about twenty buildings, and is endowed with some thirteen 
million dollars, of which John D. Rockefeller has given over 
seven million. The grounds are twenty-four acres in extent. 
The four faculties of arts, science, commerce, politics and 
philosophy are included. The buildings are mostly of lime- 
stone in the Gothic style. The libraries contain 330,000 
volumes. 

Newberry Library — North Clark St., near Division. North 
Clark St. cable car takes you to entrance; 250,000 volumes; 
A^ery complete; musical and medical collections. 

Chicago Historical Society — Cor. Dearborn Ave. and On- 
tario St. (N. side). The society is housed in a magnificent 
stone building and is of more than passing interest not only 
to the stranger but to the Chicagoan as well, though but 
few of the latter even know of its existence. Visitors are 
welcome between the hours of 9 a. m. and 5 p. m., except 
Saturday afternoon. Closed Sundays. The Lecture Hall con- 
tains a 'fine collection of oil portraits of Chicago pioneers 
and on the main floor is a library of 25,000 books and 50,000 
pamphlets, among which are many dealing with the early 
history of the city and the northwest. On the second floor 
is a most interesting museum, which ought to be visited by 
every man, woman and child in Chicago, since it contains 
many relics of the early days when the great city lived but 
in the dreams of her few inhabitants. There is a model of 
Fort Dearborn, relics of the great fire, the bones of the 
first man killed in the city and hundreds of other things 
of intense interest. There is no admission charged and all 
are welcome. Visitors will find much of absorbing interest 
here. 

Haymarket Square — Cor. Randolph and Desplaines Bts. 
The place made famous by the anarchist riots, May 4, 1886, 
in which several policemen were killed by dynamite bombs. 
Monument in northeast corner of Union Park (Randolph St. 
and Ogden Ave.) commemorates their death. 



Il 

E(iuestrian Statue of Gen. John A. Logan — Michigan Ave., 
south of Auditorium Hotel j body lies in crypt beneath the 
statue. The general is represented as rallying his troops 
before Atlanta. Erected 1897, cost $80,000. 

Lake Park — Lake front and Michigan Ave., Washington 
to Twelfth St. All the ground in this park has been made 
by the dumping of refuse from the city. The lake for- 
merly came up to street line of Michigan Ave. 

The Chicago Elver— The north and south branches of the 
Chicago river join near Market and Lake Sts. The river 
is Chicago's harbor, and is lined from its mouth to Market 
St. with docks. It is narrow, dirty and uninviting, and 
has about thirty miles of navigable frontage in the city. 
Many steel bridges cross it and several tunnels pass beneath 
it, the latter being mainly for the accommodation of street 
railways. The shipping can be seen anywhere on the river 
between Market St. and Michigan Ave. A Government 
breakwater one mile in length protects its mouth from the 
storms of the lake. The harbor is from 15 to 18 feet in 
depth. 

United States Signal Station — On the fourteenth floor of 
the Postoffice Building, corner Dearborn and Jackson Sts., 
is the largest Signal Service Station outside of Washington. 
It is fully equipped with every up-to-date device known to 
science for the forecasting of the weather. This station is of 
great importance to the shipping of the Great Lakes and 
there is no doubt that hundreds of lives have been saved in 
the past by the warnings of bad weather emanating from this 
station. It is a public office and visitors are welcome. For 
many years the station was in the Auditorium tower. 

Site of Old Fort Dearborn — One point of great interest is 
the site of Old Fort Dearborn, which occupied the ground 
on w^hich now stands the wholesale grocery house of Hoyt 
& Co., at the junction of Michigan Ave. and the Chicago 
River. On the front of the building, facing the river, is a 
marble tablet bearing the followdng inscription: <'Thia 
building occupies the site of Old Fort Dearborn, which ex- 
tended a little across Michigan Ave. and somewhat into 
the river as it now is. The fort was built in 1803 — forming 
our outmost defense. By order of General Hull it was evac- 
uated Aug. 15, 1812, after its stores and provisions had been 
distributed among the Indians. Very soon after the In- 
dians attacked and massacred about 50 of the troops and a 
number of citizens, including women and children, and the 
next dav burned the fort. In 1816 it was rebuilt, but after 
the Blackhawk war it went into gradual disuse, and in May, 
1835, it was abandoned by the army but was occupied by 



42 CHICAGO, ILL. 

various Government Officials until 1857, when it wag torn 
down, excepting a single building which stood upon this site 
until the great fire of Oct. 9, 1871. At the suggestion of 
the Chicago Historical Society this tablet was erected by 
W. M. Hoyt, Nov., 1880. »* 

Irociuois Theatre — Now known as Hyde & Behman's; popu- 
lar prices; musical farces, etc. This ill-fated house stands 
on Randolph St., between State and Dearborn. In the alley at 
the rear will be seen the fire escapes, just behind the upper door 
of which was a great pile of dead. From the top of the escape 
a ladder was laid across to a window of the building across 
the alley and many escaped over it to safety. The large iron 
doors at the rear in the alley open directly on the stage 
and it was the opening of these doors which swept the fire 
out over the doomed audience. About 600 men, women and- 
children lost their lives. The fire occurred during a matinee 
Wednesday, Dec. 30, 1903. 

The Drainage Canal — This stupendous undertaking which 
was completed in 1898 at a cost of over twenty-seven mil- 
lion dollars, is for the purpose of taking away Chicago's 
sewerage, so that the lake, from which the water supply is 
taken, will not be contaminated. It leaves the Chicago River 
at Robey St., extends to Lockport (28 M.), where it dis- 
charges into the Des Plaines river and ultimately through 
the Illinois River into the Mississippi. It draws about 300,- 
000 cubic feet of water from the lake per minute. It is 
intended at some future time to establish steamboat com- 
munication with the Mississippi River through this canal. 
The possibilities of this canal were first commented on by 
Father Marquette when h'e first visited the site of Chicago 
in 1673. 

The Best Residence Section — The North Shore Drive is 
the finest residence street on the north side, as well as a very 
beautiful drive. Those who can afford it should go over 
this famous boulevard either in a carriage or automobile. 
The trip will be thoroughly enjoyable. Michigan Ave. on 
the south side, on which is located the First Regiment Arm- 
ory (Cor. Sixteenth St.), The Calumet Club (Cor. Twentieth), 
many beautiful hotels, apartment houses (flats), as well as 
some magnificent residences, is one of Chicago's best streets. 
Drexel Blvd. contains the Drexel Memorial Fountain and 
many of Chicago's best residences. Prairie Ave. is another 
of Chicago 's show streets. The residences of Marshall Field, 
P. D. Armour and the late George M. Pullman are at num- 
bers 1905, 2115 and 1724 respectively. 

Masonic Temple — On the corner of Randolph and State 
Sts. is the magnificent 24-story Masonic Temple. Entering 
the great rotunda which extends almost the full height of 



CHICAGO, ILL. 43 

the building, we will take one of the many passenger ele- 
vators, ascending as far as it goes. Here we will pay 25c 
admission and walk up stairs to the Summer Garden, which 
is a large pavilion containing stage, dressing roms, etc. — the 
full accoutrements of a theatre; thence up one flight to the 
observation platform, which is the highest point in the 
city. From here a magnificent view of the city and lake 
is had, providing the day is clear. If, however, it is not a 
clear day, I would not advise a trip to the platform, since 
little will be seen. The Temple is Chicago's highest build- 
ing. 

Hull House — Hull House is essentially a Social Settlement 
and occupies a series of buildings fronting on Halsted St., 
covering a block from Polk to Ewing St., the main entrance 
being at 335 S. Halsted St. The nucleus of these buildings 
was the old residence of Chas. J. Hull, which was built in 
the '50s. To it has been added, from time to time, as the 
need arose, the other buildings. The objects of Hull House, 
as stated in its charter, is *Ho provide a center for a 
higher civic and social life; to institute and maintain educa- 
tional and philanthropic enterprises and to investigate and 
improve the conditions in the industrial centers of Chi- 
cago." Hull House contains a number of lecture and meet- 
ing rooms, where classes are held under competent instruc- 
tors, these classes ranging from kindergarten instruction to 
almost any branch of learning desired. There are classes in 
Basket Weaving, Wood Carving, Engineering, Carpentry, 
Needlework, Dressmaking, Cooking, Beadwork, Metalwork, 
Art, German, French, Italian, Geometry, Elocution, Ehetoric, 
Grammar, Arithmetic Algebra, etc., etc. — in fact, almost 
every useful thing is taught at Hull House. There are 
athletic clubs, musical organizations, and clubs covering al- 
most every phase of social life. There is a theater in which 
the dramatic clubs give performances from time to time; a 
coffee house, apartments, etc, Hull House is doing a great 
and good work in the educating of the lower closses of the 
great city to a higher plane of thought and life. The in- 
stitution is largely self-sustaining, but there are few ways 
in which bequests could be bestowed where the money would 
do the real practical good it would here. Here it would be 
made to do work that would be of lasting benefit to human- 
ity.

Most of the piano and music houses of Chicago are lo- 
cated on Wabash Ave., between Van Buren and Madison Sts., 
the Lyon & Healy Company being at the corner of Wabash 
and Adams. Perhaps the busiest and most congested street 
of the city is Van Buren St. from Fifth Ave. to Wabash. 
The street is narrow and constantly choked with a stream 
of vehicles, while the sidewalks are crowded with pedes- 
trians. The south side of the Union Loop passing overhead 
with the continual roar of trains, together with the 
Qoise of the ordinary traffic, will give the visitor from the 
country something to talk about for several days. On Sat- 
urday evening State St. presents a very animated appear- 
ance, the sidewalks being literally jammed with pedestrians, 
while the electrical illuminations and the beautiful store 
fvrindows present an appearance long to be remembered. 

Underground Chicago. 

Strange as it may seem, there are but very few people 
even here in the city who know that the streets of the down 
town section are underlaid by an enormous tunnel system, 
illuminated by myriads of electric lights, in which trains of 
steel cars pulled by electric motors run night and day, and 
ivhich contain the cables of the largest automatic telephone 
system in the world. This gigantic undertaking has been 
accomplished literally while Chicago slept, the work being 
lone between the hours of 10 p. m. and 5 a. m., and it is 
safe to say that fully one million of the citizens of Chi- 
cago who daily walk above it do not even know of its ex- 
istence; yet it is destined in the future to be of the utmost 



CHICAGO, I]vL. 45 

importance to the city. In all the work of the building of 
the 27 miles of tunnel now in active operation, there was 
not a solitary complaint, accident or litigation. The tunnel 
is six by eight feet in dimensions, and lies forty feet below 
the street level. The germ which produced this gigantic 
system was the desire of the Automatic Telephone Company 
to lay its cables so far below the streets that there would 
be no interference with the immense network of the tele- 
phone and telegraph wires, small railway tunnels, water and 
other pipes or any conflict with any other franchise. Their 
exchange, Fifth Ave., near Monroe, is at present the en- 
trance through which the few who are permitted to view the 
iLabyrinth descend. It is planned to, in the future, as fast 
las possible, establish communication with the business 
houses above, and deliver all freight through these tunnels, 
thus relieving the terribly congested streets. The cars, while 
small beside modern railway cars, will hold as much as those 
in use on the steam railv/ays of twenty years ago. Shafts 
will be run up through the basement, or adjacent to each 
auilding, and the car of merchandise will be hoisted to the 
mrface for unloading. The system, when present plans are 
ompleted, will be approximately 120 miles in length, truly 
I colossal undertaking. One of the little motors will con- 
vey 150 tons of freight 20 miles in one hour. It is believed 
hat when this system is in complete operation it will do 
nore to render Chicago an ideal city than all other things 
ombined. Not only will it relieve the congested streets, 
)ut it is believed it will cause the removal of the railway 
ards with their smoke-belching locomotives, which pro- 
luce four-fifths of the smoke smudge^ for which Chicago has 
he honor at present of being distinguished, outside of the 
ity. When I say that four million tons of coal are con- 
umed in Chicago annually, some grasp may be had of the 
olossal work this tunnel system is expected to accomplish, 
ince this, as well as other freight, will be delivered through 
t. A depot site at Taylor St. and the river has just been 
urchased (July, 1904) for $2,500,000, and here every railway 
ntering the city will connect with the tunnel. The build- 
ng contemplated for this great receiving station will cost 
4,000,000 and not far in the future practically all of Chi- 
ago's vast freight business will pass through it.

Central Department — The Central Department is by far 
the largest in the city, both in membership and in equip- 
ment. January 1st, 1905, it had 4,717 members, and dur- 
ing the year 1904 it had about 7,500 different members. 

The department occupies most of eight floors in the Asso- 
ciation Building, 153 La Salle St. and "has 'a magnificent 
equipment consisting of reception, reading and correspon- 
dence rooms, parlors, club rooms, libraries, class rooms and 
laboratories for day and evening classes; an auditorium 
seating 950, a lecture room, an employment bureau, two 
barber shops, a large gymnasium, a swimming tank, lockers 
and dressing rooms, 52 shower and tub baths and steam 
room, and a bicycle storage. . 

The privilege® of the physical section of the work are 
very popular. There are eight physical instructors employed, 
and the attendance for gymnasium classes during the month 
has gone during the year 1904 over 6,000. Besides the class 
and team work there is a swimming and life-saving club 
and a fencing club. The swimming tank is a very popular 
feature and is used a great deal, especially during the sum- 
mer months. 

The Educational section of this department conducts day 
and evening schools, literary and debating clubs and educa- 
tional lectures and practical talks. The enrollment in the 
day schools at the end of 1904 was about 650, and the 



CHICAGO, ILL. 47 

evening school enrollment about 1,275. Of the ten educa- 
tional clubs the Citizenship Club and the Senate especially 
are quite influential in bringing before its members and oth- 
ers a high standard of useful citizenship. The attendance 
at the 68 educational lectures and practical talks during the 
year 1904 was 6,621. 

The religious section of the department conducts a religi- 
ous meeting of some kind every day in the year at noon, 
except on Sundays, when the meetings are held in the after- 
noon. These meetings often tax the capacity of the Audi- 
torium and such men as Eev. G. Campbell Morgan, Eev. F. 
W. Gunsaulus, Dr. Marcus Dods of Edinburg, Scotland, and 
Dr. J. Wilbur Chapman are heard. The religious section 
also conducts a large bible study work, and has classes for 
both boys and men. Saturday noons a normal class is con- 
ducted for the benefit of Sunday School teachers. 

Thei Social section of the department conducts an enter- 
tainment course consisting of 20 entertainments during the 
year which are held in the Association Auditorium. It also 
conducts social clubs and has charge of the Saturday night 
"open house.'' 

Visitors will be interested in visiting this department, 
and upon request will be furnished with an usher to show 
them the various features. 

West Side Department — The West Side Department con- 
ducts a work similar to that of the Central Department 
and had a membership at the close of the year 1904 of 
679. In addition to their gymnasium and swimming tank 
they have dormitories which are rented out to members by 
the month, and bowling alleys and billiard and pool tables. 

Hyde Park Department — The Hyde Park Department is 
at the present time conducting a limited work along phj^s- 
ical, religious and educational lines, but upon the completion 
of a fine new building at Hyde Park at the northeast cor- 
ner of Madison Ave. and 53rd St., which will soon be under 
way, the work will be much more extensive. 

Railroad Departments — Membership in the Railroad 
Departments of the Association is open only to employes 
of the railroad companies which contribute to the support 
of these five departments. The Dearborn Street Depart- 
ment conducts an aggressive religious work, and all of the 
departments conduct restaurant and dormitories for the 
use of both members and non-members of the Association. 

Student Departments — The Student work of the city is 
under the supervision of a Superintendent of student work 
employed by the Board of Managers of the Association. 
The membership at the close of the year 1904 was 529. 
All of the Student Departments conduct a boarding-house 



48 CHICAGO, ILL. 

register, and most of the departments have parlors, recep- 
tion rooms, a game room, an assembly room and reading, 
study and correspondence rooms. Three of the departments 
have dormitories. 

While the average visitor may not be especially inter- 
ested in the Railroad and Student Departments, we invite 
him to visit any of them in which he may be interested. 
Visitors in the city are ©specially invited to inspect the 
work of the Association at the Central, West Side and Hyde 
Park Departments. The Association is very glad to have 
the public become more and more acquainted with this great 
work among the young men of the world which especially 
in this country is becoming more and more to be one of 
inestimable influence and value to them. 

THE YOUNG WOiyCEN'S CHRISTIAN ASSOCIATION. 

(Prepared by Mrs. Davidson, Superintendent Michigan Ave- 
nue Home). 

The home of this organization is in a commodious brick 
structure at 288 Michigan Ave., where it accommodates a 
family of over 400 girls. The building faces the Lake Front 
Park and is within comfortable walking distance of the 
downtown district, the theaters, Institute of Fine Arts, the 
Chicago Public Library, Chicago Art Institute, etc. Chapel 
service is held every evening at 7:30, at which are often 
heard vocal, piano or violin solos, with readings from the 
famous authors and poets. The details of the management 
are in the hands of a Board of Managers, and the whole- 
some, home-like appearance which appeals alike to the vis- 
itor and inmate reflects credit on the custodians. Girls 
from almost every state in the union have here found pro- 
tection and a home free from the manifold dangers of the 
great and wicked city. Ladies and young girls who come 
to the city unattended will find no better place to stop, 
and they will be given all necessary advice and informa- 
tion. For more than 25 years this board of noble women 
has borne the burden of the management and made it pos- 
sible to maintain such a home in this beautiful site in the 
heart of the city. Parents who are looking for a place to 
which they can send their daughters while attending school 
in the city will find no safer place. Working girls who 
earn a moderate salary have the comforts of a home and 
pleasant companionship. The parlors are light and cheeiy 
and the library is a large, airy room. ' ^ A travelers ' aid ' ' 
meets trains, and untold good has been done by caring for 
unattended ladies and girls, ai-riving as strangers and alone 



CHICAGO, ILL. 49 

in the gi*eat and wicked city, where many of them would, 
undoubtedly, but for this aid fall victims to scoundrels who 
would take advantage of their innocence and ignorance. 
Where the "Ladies' Aid" encounters a girl in one of the 
depots who has arrived without money or friends she is 
taken charge of, taken to the Home, and provided for until 
such time as she is placed in a position to earn her liv- 
ing. This in some ways is one of the most important works 
of the organization, and we believe that many thousands 
of girls have been saved from the slums of Chicago and 
utter, irretrievable ruin by the work of the ** Travelers' 
Aid" of this organization. The Association maintains an 
Employment Bureau, where positions are secured for girls 
and women, not only as common laborers (domestics) but 
in the various skilled crafts as well. There is a nominal 
charge made for this service which is aimed to cover about 
the cost of the maintenance of the Bureau. Altogether 
the work of the Y. W. C. A. of Chicago is a most com- 
mendable one and it cannot be too highly praised. It is to 
be noted that this institution recognizes no denominational 
lines. Jew and Gentile are alike when they stand before 
its portal; the only aim being to do the greatest possible 
amount of good for humanity. There is a branch Home 
on the West Side at 57 Center Ave., which will accommodate 
20 inmates, and in which the cost of living is reduced to 
even a lower sum than the rates of the Michigan Ave. 
Home. There is a debt of $100,000 hanging over this insti- 
tution which it is hoped, however, will soon be reduced. 
The organization has so far been able to meet its running 
expenses of $72,000 per year, but has been unable to reduce 
the debt and at the same make the necessary improvements 
to the property. Here is a chance for some philanthropic 
person to place a sum of money where it will do a maxi- 
mum amount of good. 

Board and room in the Michigan Ave. Home costs from 
p4.25 to $7 per week, the former sum being allowable only 
to girls or women who make small salaries, since it is almost 
below cost in a locality of this kind. Transient rates are 
$1.50 to $2 per day. 

ZION CITY, ILLINOIS. 

The world-famous Zion City was established in the year 
1901 by the Eeverend John Alexander Dowie, the present 
General Overseer and founder of the Christian Catholic 
Church, that has members on every continent and is known 
throughout the world. 

Zion City lies on the lake shore, forty-two miles north of 



50 CHICAGO, ILL. 

Chicago, on the lines of the Chicago & Northwestern, and 
Chicago & Milwaukee Electric Railways, and comprises ten 
square miles of beautiful rolling land with two and one-half 
miles of frontage on Lake Michigan. From a bare prairie it 
grew in a short time to be a city of some 7,000 inhabitants 
with hundreds of beautiful homes costing from $5,000 to 
$15,000. It is regularly incorporated and organized under 
the state laws of Illinois, and has a mayor and ten aldermen, 
the various departments of city government being nicely 
organized. The police and fire departments are particularly 
efficient. 

Shiloh Tabernacle, a temporary structure, seating 7,300 
people, and the center of the city's life, is located in the 
center of a beautiful park of 200 acres, around which the 
city is built. The headquarters of the Zion Educational 
Institutions is a beautiful cut-stone college building costing 
$150,000. The graded schools are located in four frame build- 
ings of eight rooms and a large chapel. About 2,000 pupils 
are instructed annually in the various departments of the 
schools. 

Zion City is unique in many respects, containing no 
saloons, theaters, drug stores, tobacco shops, or any places 
where pork, oysters, or like foods are sold; nor has it any 
practicing physicians. The General Stores, which are estab- 
lished on the plan of the large department stores of Chicago, 
are nicely arranged to take care of the needs of the city. 
All perishable foods, such as meats, fruits, vegetables, butter 
and eggs, milk, etc., are handled in separate buildings pro- 
vided with large refrigerating facilities. 

The principal industry of the city consists of the Zion 
Lace Factories, which manufacture excellent Nottingham 
]ace. The other industries which are firmly established are 
candy, soap, and cracker factories, and a printing and pub- 
lishing house. The printing and publishing house, in addition 
to publishing '* Leaves of Healing" and other Zion publi- 
cations, does excellent job printing for some of the largest 
commercial houses in Chicago and elsewhere. 

Elijah Hospice is a fully equipped modern hotel with 350 
rooms for the accommodation of the guests of the city. It 
has a frontage of 347 ft., is 140 ft. deep, and three stories 
high. 

The regular fare to Zion City is $2.50 for the round trip. 
It is a very pleasant ride along the lake shore from either 
Chicago or Milwaukee. There are a number of trains each 
day, so visitors may spend a few hours, returning to Chicago 
or Milwaukee on the same day if they desire. Special trains 
are run from Chicago every Sunday, leaving the Chicago & 
Northwestern Depot about 11:30, and returning at the close 



CHICAGO, ILL. 51 

f the services. The round trip fare on these excursions is 
cents. Visitors desiring to see the sights in and around 
/hicago should not miss viewing this remarkable city. 

MUSICAL CHICAGO. 

Chicago is a musical center of considerable artistic influ- 
nce, containing as it does one of the largest schools of music 
Q existence, one of the greatest opera houses, and a perma- 
ent orchestra of universal fame. Of the educational estab- 
ishments devoted to music, the most important and the 
irgest, not alone of Chicago, but in the world, is the Chicago 
Musical College. Situated on Michigan Avenue between the 
>hicago Club and the Fine Arts Building, this palatial home 
f music numbers among its clientele more than three thou- 
and students who, to avail themselves of the unique musical 
.dvantages, come from nearly every state in the Union, and 
rom such foreign cities as London, Paris, Berlin and War- 
aw. 

The Chicago Musical College was founded in 1867 by its 
'resident, Dr. F. Ziegfeld, who is assisted in the manage- 
nent of the institution by W. K. Ziegfeld (Manager), and 
'. Ziegfeld, secretary and treasurer. The Musical Directors 
.re: Dr. Ziegfeld, Emile Sauret, Hans von Schiller, Bern- 
lard Listemann, Herman Devries, Felix Borowski, Dr. Louis 
?alk, William Castle, Kudolph Ganz, Theodore Spiering, 
Arthur Speed, and Hart Conway, Director of the School of 
Acting. 

Much of the musical importance of Chicago is due to this 
5chool, which not only concentrates such a vast army of 
tudents, but which also imports from Europe the greatest 
nusicians of the world to serve as instructors. 

Of other educational establishments, the principal are the 
Jherwood Music School, Fine Arts Building, and the Ameri- 
:an Conservatory, 243 Wabash Ave. 

The city numbers many hundred teachers of whom there 
nay be mentioned (for piano) Hans von Schiller, Fannie 
Bloomfield Zeisler, Emil Liebling, Arthur Speed, William 
Sherwood, Walter Knupfer, Maurice E-osenfeld, Karl Eeck- 
:eh, and Glenn D. Gunn; (violin instructors) Emile Sauret, 
3ernhard Listeman, Joseph Ohlheiser, Theodore Spiering and 
Nm. Konrad; vocal instructors include: William Castle, Her- 
nan Devries, Mrs. O. L. Fox, L. G. Gottschalk, Frederick 
Joot, L. A. Phelps and Hans Schroeder. (Musical composi- 
ion) Felix Borowski, Adolf Weidig. 

Chicago boasts of several important organizations aside 
'rom those directly connected with musical education. Prin- 
iipal among these is the Chicago Orchestra, founded in 1891 
Dy the late Theodore Thomas. The Orchestra is under the 



52 CHICAGO, ILL. 

control of the Orchestral Association, and until the present 
year gave its concerts in the Auditorium. As the end of 
each Season resulted in a large deficit which was met by 
guarantors, an appeal was made to the public to save the 
Orchestra from the disbandment which was threatened by 
the unwillingness of the guarantors to support the Orchestra 
indefinitely. A large sum was raised by public subscription 
and a new hall (Orchestra Hall) was built on Michigan 
Avenue, between Adams St. and Jackson Blvd., in which the 
concerts are now given. The Season consists of some twenty- 
four double performances, which take the form of a public 
rehearsal on Friday Afternoon and the concert on Saturday 
Evening. Since the death of Mr. Theodore Thomas in Jan- 
uary, 1905, the Orchestra has been without a permanent con- 
ductor. 

The Apollo Club is the most important choral organization 
of the city. Under the conductorship of Harrison Wild it 
presents Oratorios and other choral works, its concerts being 
generally given in the Auditorium. Another choral body 
is the Mendelssohn Society, which directs its attention prin-j 
cipally to the singing of part songs. 

The Germania Maennerchor, under the direction of Hans 
von Schiller, is the foremost male choir of Chicago. 

A Club comprised of musicians who form the faculty of 
the Chicago Musical College, is the Ziegfeld Club. This 
organization includes among its honorary members many 
distinguished musicians of other countries. 

Concerts are ver}^ extensively patronized in Chicago. i 
Every season brings a large number of the greatest Euro- 
pean singers and instrumentalists. Of the permanent con- 
certs, in addition to the above mentioned, there are those of 
the Spieriug Quartet and the Sauret Trio, the latter founded 
by the eminent French violinist, Emile Sauret. Periodical 
recitals are given by the faculty of the Chicago Musical 
College and the other schools of the city. A great orchestral 
concert is given in the month of October by the former 
institution, which also presents a performance of grand opera 
later in the season, both productions being given in the 
Auditorium. 

Performances of opera are given during the season by the 
company of the New York Metropolitan Opera House under 
the direction of Mr. Conried. English opera is given by 
the Castle Square Opera Co. under the management of Mr, 
Henry Savage. 

The principal Concert Halls of Chicago are: 

The Auditorium — Congress St., between Michigan and 
Wabash Aves, 

The Studebaker Theater — 203 Michigan Avenue. 



CHICAGO, ILL. 53 

Music Hall — 203 Michigan Ave. 

Orchestra Hall — Michigan Ave. and Adams St. 

Kimball Hall— 239 Wabash Ave. 

Steinway Hall — 17 Van Buren St. 

Leading Music & Instrument Dealers: Lyon & Healy, cor. 
Wabash Ave. and Adams St. This house carries everything 
in the line of music and musical instruments. Wabash Ave- 
nue between Van Buren and Madison Sts., contains a very 
large number of piano and organ manufacturers and dealers. 
Scattered about the city are many small dealers in sheet 
music, etc. The department stores, also, carry sheet music 
and various kinds of musical instruments. Lyon & Healy, 
however, is the largest general music house in the West, 
and is, therefore, perhaps the best place to trade in this 
line. 

THE CITY GOVERNMENT. 

The governing of a city of over 2,000,000 people, where 
the revenue amounts to over $15,000,000 annually, not includ- 
ing $5,000,000 derived from the municipal water plant, is a

ered is 191 square miles. It will thus be seen that the num- 
ber of men available for patrol duty is inadequate; it must 
also be remembered that many of the men are frequently 
absent on account of sickness and accident, thus still fur-

ther reducing the force. Of those left, many are men who 
have grown gray in the service and are no longer fit for 
active post duty. There is an urgent need for at least 1,000 
new men, and even twice that number could be used to excel- 
lent advantage. 

The head of the department is Chief O'Neill, a veteran 
who has given the best years of his life to the service of 
the city. What he has accomplished with the small force at 
his command is little short of phenomenal. Not only is he 
hampered as above mentioned, but he has to deal with one 
of the most turbulent cities on the continent. A large per- 
centage of his small force is almost constantly detailed on 
strike duty. The foregoing table will give a clear idea of 
the work done by the police in apprehending criminals and 
recovering stolen property as well as the cost of police 
service (see opposite page). 

From the above table it will be seen that of $434,881.75 
worth of property reported stolen in 1903, all but $42,700 
worth was recovered, truly a remarkable showing, and one 
which reflects great credit on the department. Another very 
interesting table shown below is the Chief Police Matron's 
report for the same year:

THE COMMERCE OF THE CITY. 

The commercial interests of Chicago are colossal. I 
1903 it paid $9,179,503 duty on imported merchandise; and e: 
ported goods to the value of $3,864,440. The internal reveni 
collected in the city the same year amounted to $6,424,06^ 
According to the 1900 census, there were 19,203 manufa 
turing establishments, not including those branches of indui 
try in which less than $50,000 capital was invested. Tt 
dressmakers headed the list with 1,746 shops; men's cu 
torn clothing came next with 1,604 factories, having over 
000,000 invested capital; giving employment to 6327 persoD 
to whom were paid $3,416,102 wages during the year. Nes 
come carpenter shops numbering 1089; and boots and shoe 
(custom), 1,079. The largest investment of capital, $69 
546,376, is in illuminating and heating gas, and the slaughl 
ering and meat packing interests amounting to $66,766,465 
follow in close sequence. The iron and steel interests rej 
resent $24,271,764; foundry and machine shop products, $30 
356,168; agricultural implements, $36,025,355; malt, $16 
621,529; bicycles and tricycles, $7,229,024; paints, $3,075,908 
printing, book and job work, $12,540,430, and so on a 
infinitum, the total investment in manufacturing enterprise 
of Chicago being $534,000,689; number of plants, 19,203 
number of employes, 262,621; amount in wages, $131,065 
337; cost of raw material, $538,401,562; value of finishe- 
product, $888,786,311; all this added to the output of th 
small industries in which less than $50,000 is invested, wouL 
bring the grand total of Chicago's yearly production up t 
very nearly $1,000,000,000 per year. Gigantic as these fig 
ures are they have been very materially increased since 190C

THE IVrUNICIPAL LODGING HOUSE. 

No. 10 N. Union, near Haymarket Sq., West Side. 

This is an institution of which the city may justly be 

proud, not that it is anything elaborate, but because it gives 



CHICAGO, ILL. 83 

shelter to men who are stranded, homeless aud helpless in a 
great city. The method adopted by this House is best ex- 
plained bj"- quoting from its card: 

"Get Help From The Chicago Municipal Lodging House, 
No. 10 N. Union St., Skilled and unskilled labor to be ob- 
tained without charge to employer or employee. Help us to 
provide work for the worthy unemployed. Care taken to 
supply situations for competent men. James MuUenbach, 
Ass't Sup't; Raymond Robins, Supt. Telephone Monroe 126. 

''The city of Chicago has established a Municipal Lodging 
House for the benefit of all homeless and indigent men and 
boys in this City. Lodging, a bath and food are provided 
free for every applicant for one night, and longer, if he is 
honestly seeking employment. The crippled, old, or infirm 
are sent each morning to hospitals, dispensaries or homes. 
Each lodger receives personal investigation, and his case is 
disposed of upon the facts alone. Employment is found for 
the industrious and able bodied. The citizens and housewives 
of Chicago are requested therefore to refuse alms, and to 
refer all applicants to the Municipal Lodging House by means 
of this ticket.'' 

The applicant for lodging is registered on a card which 
gives all details in regard to him, his past, what line of labor 
he is skilled in, etc., etc. He is then handed a check and 
passes down stairs where he receives all the bread and coffee 
he desires; thence he enters the disrobing room where all his 
clothing is placed in a netted sack; he then goes to a shower 
bath where he must thoroughly scrub himself; after which he 
enters the drying room where he receives a night shirt and 
carpet slippers; he then enters a room where he is thoroughly 
examined by a staff of medical men. Now he is ready for 
sleep and passes to the second floor where he finds a clean, 
comfortable bed. The lodging house appointments are rough 
but scrupulously clean, and it is in every way a valuable 
and commendable institution. In addition to providing food 
and lodging every effort is made to furnish employment for 
those who are able to work. There is no charge of any kind, 
and no man should commit a crime to obtain food or shelter 
for he may enter here and, though the accommodations are 
rough and the menu limited (except as to quantity) it is ail 
clean and wholesome. As its hospitality is provided by the 
city no one need feel degraded in accepting it for it is not a 
charity but a duty the city owes to its unfortunates.

CHINESE RESTAURANTS. 

King Yen Lo Co., 279 S. Clark St. cor. Van Buren St. 

Shanghai Co., 253 S. Clark St. 

Wee Ying Lo., 172 S. Clark St. 

Joy Yet Lo & Co., 293 Clark St. 

Hong Fong Lo Co., 296 S. State St. 

Hin Wah, 2132 S. State St. 

The Chinese eating-rooms of the city familiarly known as 
"Chop Suey" restaurants, will, no doubt, be quite a novelty 
to the average visitor. The restaurant of the King Yen Lo 
Co., 279 S. Clark St., is the best example. It is magnifi- 
cently fitted up at a cost of about $40,000. In the front 
room to the left of the entrance are beautiful hand-carve<i 
chairs of solid teakwood inlaid with mother-of-pearl. The 
tables are also of teakwood inlaid with pearl. On the walls 
are Chinese paintings, representing the Chinese High Court. 
Especial attention is directed to the hand-carved lattice be- 
tween the two main rooms. It is one of the finest specimeni 
of this class of work in America. Back of the main rooms 
are two small banqueting halls. The curtains at the various 
openings are of hand-embroidered Chinese silk, as are also 
the sash curtains at the windows. Everything in these rooms 
except the lamp fixtures was imported from China. On the 
menu are 229 kinds of food and 15 varieties of tea, the mar- 
bond-nick tea being $2.25 per pot. The dishes mostly ordered 
are (figures refer to number on menu card), American Chop 
Sooy (1). Same, extra fine (2); Chicken Chop Sooy, (11). 
Same with white mushrooms (14). Yet-Ca-Mein (105). 
Same, extra fine (106). War Mein (109). Chow Mein (124). 
These dishes, together with rice in various forms and tea 
constitute four-fifths of the business of these restaurants. 
The menu contains some very expensive delicacies, Loung-foo 
Dan (179), being $2.50. Bird's Nest, Fongwong Yen (186) 
$5. Bird's Nest Loung-fong Yen (187) $6. Bird's Nest 



CHICAGO, ILL. 85 

Yet-bean War (188) $12. Bird's Nest Bud-ball Yet-bean War 
(189) $15. Shark's Fiu, Loung-fong Chea (190) $6. Dove, 
Bud-ball Tone Bark-arp (201) $3.50, etc., etc., through a long 
list. The popular dishes, however, range from 25 to 50 cents. 
A visit to one of these places will be quite interesting. 

THE LOG CABIN SALOON. 

Located at 267 S. Clark St. Quite a novelty, being elabo- 
rately fitted up in rustic style. The mirrors behind the bar 
are apparently of the ordinary kind, but on request the bar- 
tender will caujse pictures to appear thereon, the mirrors un- 
der his manipulation, being apparently of plain transparent 
glass. 

Heinegabubler's Palace Saloon, 348 S. State St., is fitted 
up in imitation of a low sailor's dive, the decorations being 
of the crudest sort. The walls are covered with comic signs 
and harmless tricks are played on visitors. With a jolly 
crowd it is quite an amusing place to visit. For men only. 

CHICAGO-AURORA & ELGIN ELECTRIC RAILWAY. 

This line connects with the Garfield branch of the Metro- 
politan Elevated at S. 52nd Ave. Cars run every 30 minutes,

CHICAGO PASSENGER TRAINS. 

Including suburban trains, there are about 1,700 passenger 
trains which arrive and depart daily from the six principal 
depots of Chicago, the number varying according to the 
season. 

HARRISON STREET POLICE STATION. 

Information furnished by Inspector P. J. Lavin. 
When, in 1871, the fire had swept away the Armory build- 
ing on Franklin St. which housed the South Side headquar- 
ters, the station was located temporarily in the old Bridewell, 



86 CHICAGO, ILL. 

cor. Polk St. and Wells (now 5th Ave.), and then shifted 
to the frame school house cor. Harrison St. and Pacific Ave 
the present site. 

While the present building was being erected it was then 
moved to another building, cor. Clark and Harrison Sts. 
The building which now houses this famous station is anj-- 
thing but imposing, being a red brick structure, two story 
and basement, surmounted by a short flag pole. It stands 
just across the street from the train shed of the LaSalle St. 
railway station. In it are located the South Side police 
headquarters, the Harrison St. police court, cell rooms 
inspectors' and captains' offices, sleeping quarters for the 
men, gymnasium and bureau of identification; while in the 
annex to the north are cells for children and women who 
have never been arrested before, as well as a fire department 
station. 

The location is in the very heart of what was for years 
recognized as the slums of the city, comprising Fourth Ave., 
South Clark St., South State St., and the "Levee," which 
contributed a large proportion of all the crime of the city. 
Many grewsome yarns could be unraveled from the records 
of this old station; stories of crime, misery, wild debauchery, 
sodden wretchedness, and despair. 

The station has always been prominent, as it is the pioneer 
of the South Side. It has held practically every desperate 
criminal captured in the city, among the more noted crim- 
inals being the Haymarket anarchists; the Niedemeyer boys 
of ear barn murder fame; Chas. W. Everest of Topeka, Kas., 
who murdered Officer Barrett; Benjamin Morris, alias 
"Daefy Morris," who shot and killed two men on the 
"Levee," Jack Yallow (alias "Black Jack"), who kept 
what was known as the "Bum Boat," a vessel plying on 
the lake front which served liquors and where many loose 
women congregated. Black Jack was a notorious character 
about town and finally shot and killed Wm. Kearns. Many 
old citizens will remember him and the "Bum Boat." The 
band of desperadoes, James and William Formby, David 
Kelly and Peter Dulfer, who were charged with a long series 
of robberies and murders, were confined in this station; 
Eddy Fay, the noted bank and post office robber, looked from 
between the cell bars of the Harrison St. station. John 
Eedmond, who was captured by the South Side police in 
1904 for a murder committed in Ashland, Wis., July 27th, 
1887, was one of the recent inmates; and so on ad infinitum. 
Some 2,000 prisoners per week are handled at this station 
in busy times. 

About noon of April 22, 1891, E. D. Houghgaling shot and 
killed Officer Messenger in the main office to the left of the 



CHICAGO, ILL. 87 

lergeant's desk because Messenger had, earlier in the even- 
ng, warned him to cease annoying two girls who appealed to 
the officer for protection from him. The officer fell just 
nside the outer inspector's office. Houghgaling was also 
killed in the melee, in which over a dozen shots were fired. 

In the basement are located the cells, arranged in four rows 
running N. and S. Two of these rows are known as *'disor- 
lerly rows," one as "criminal" and one as "women's" 
row. In the corridor at the N. end of the cell rows are the 
Jailer's and Matron's desks. On the other side of the cor- 
idor (N) is the prison kitchen. As one looks into these grim, 
forbidding cells with their bare wooden benches, thoughts 
irise of the squalor, wretchedness and crime they have shel- 
:.ered, and one turns away with a shudder at the degradation. 
3n the main floor are the Inspector's offices, the Captain's 
Dffice, the desk Sergeant's room, a telephone and report 
room, and the main office, as well as the police court and 
;he famous "Bull Pen," where all "drunk and disorderly" 
?ases are tried. On the second floor are the sleeping quar- 
:er9 of the men, a large, airy room, and the Harrison Street 
Police Athletic Club, a splendidly equipped room containing 
very modern appliance for scientific exercise. There are 
ings, bars, ladders, boxing gloves, etc., etc., a small hand- 
3all court and a bath room equipped with both tub and 
showers. Sergeant Mooney is president of the club awd 
Lewis Clark is its trainer. In the N. W. corner of the 
building is the largest Bureau of Identification in the world, 
fv^ith one exception, that of Paris, France. The bureau is in 
harge of Captain Michael Evans, and under his management 
aas become one of the most important departments of the 
^'hicago police force. Thousands of criminals have been 
dentified who otherwise probably would have escaped th-a 
meshes of the law. Here will be seen thousands of photo- 
graphs of criminals more or less noted. 

The Division is under charge of Inspector P. J. Lavin, who 
has, by his able work during the past few years, trans- 
formed what was one of the worst spots on the continent 
nto a very orderly place. Most of the street-walkers, pick- 
pockets and confidence men have disappeared, and today 
there is little more crime here than in any other part of 
the city. 

THE CHICAGO RIVER TUNNELS. 

LaSalle St., built 1869-71, 1,890 ft. in length; cost $566,000. 
Washington St., 1867-69, 1,605 ft. long; cost $517,000. Van 
Buren St., built 1891-92, 1,514 ft. long; cost $1,000,000. 
These tunnels were built by sinking a coffer-dam half way 



88 CHICAGO, ILL. 

through the river until one-half of the bore was completed 
The other half was then treated in the same way Thus one 
half of the river was always open to ship traffic.

PRINCIPAL RESIDENCE AND BUSINESS STREETS. 

The South Side. — The main business streets of the city 
are located on the South Side. Within the section boundec 
by the river on the north and west, Lake Michigan on the 
east, and Harrison street on the south, familiarly known 
as the Down Town Section, are found the magnifieeni 
skyscrapers, palatial hotels and superb public buildinggj 



CHICAGO, ILL. 89 

for which Chicago is famous. South Water Street, located 
next to the main river, is devoted chiefly to produce commis- 
sion houses. State St., from Kaudolph to Congress, is the 
principal shopping street of the city. Cable cars run on 
State St. as far south as Sixty-third St. Next to and parallel 
with State St. is Dearborn, noted for its fine office struc- 
tures. Next to Dearborn is Clark St., a very busy thorough- 
fare. On LaSalle, the next street west, are most of the large 
banking institutions and insurance companies. Crossing the 
next street, Fifth Ave. on Harrison, we enter the wholesale 
dry goods region, lying principally between the latter street 
on the south and Monroe on the north and, extending sev- 
eral blocks eastward from the river. 

The wholesale grocery houses of the city are found 
mainly on Michigan Ave., Wabash Ave. and State St. near 
the mouth of the river. Wabash Ave., State Street's com- 
mercial rival, is noted for its book, furniture and art stores, 
musical instrument, carriage and automobile establishments, 
publishing houses, etc. It is traversed by the Indiana Ave. 
electric cars to 18th St. where they turn one block east- 
ward to Indiana Ave. and proceeds thereon to 51st St., ad- 
jacent to Washington Park. It is also traversed by the Cot- 
tage Grove Ave. cable line to 22nd St., from which point 
it extends eastward to Cottage Grove Ave., running diago- 
nally southeastward, and continuing to 55th street where it 
branches, one line running to Jackson Park on the S. E. 
and the other continuing straight ahead, past Washington 
Park to Oakwoods Cemetery, at 71st St. Archer Ave. which 
branches from State St. between 19th and 20th extends in 
a southwesterly direction crossing a branch of the Chicago 
river, beyond the city limits. It is traversed by a trolley 
line and it is typical of the West Side, inasmuch as it is de- 
voted to the shops of small tradesmen. 

Wentworth Ave., one of the longest and busiest streets in 
the city, is traversed by one of the best and most com- 
pletely equipped trolley lines in the city, running from 
Washington and Clark Streets, south on Clark, to 22nd, 
west to Wentworth Ave., south to 79th St. and west to 
Halsted, a distance of ten miles. The best way to see the 
residence streets of Chicago is to drive southward from 
some point on Michigan Ave., the Auditorium Hotel for 
instance, to 16th St., thence into Prairie Avenue, following 
that beautiful thoroughfare to 31st St., thence by Calumet 
or South Park Ave. and Grand Boulevard to Oakwood Boule- 
vard, and on the latter road east to Drexel Boulevard. If 
desired, the latter driveway may be followed to Washington 
Park. At the southern eud of the Park we may drive east- 
ward along Midway Plaisance passing the beautiful build- 



90 CHICAGO, ILL. 



ings of the University of Chicago to Jackson Park, the site 
of the World's Columbian Exposition. The return will be 
by various streets to Grand Boulevard, finally entering Michi- 
gan Ave. at 37th St. There are a number of localities along 
this drive to which special attention is called; Prairie Ave. 
from 16th to 31st contains many beautiful homes; also Michi 
gan Boulevard, from 24th to 39th St., Greenwood Ave. from 
45th to 50th and Kimbark Ave. from 51st to 55th. There 
are other beautiful residence streets on the South Side, 
namely, Oakenwald Ave., Lake Ave., East End Ave.; there 
are also many magnificent residences on unimportant cross 
streets. 

The West Side. — Madison St. is the main business 
thoroughfare of West Chicago. This street extends west- 
ward from the lake passing Garfield Park; the Madison St. 
cable line runs from State and Madison Sts. north on State 
to Washington west to Jefferson, south to Madison and west 
on Madison to 40th Ave. Eandolph and Lake Sts., parallel- 
ing Madison are the next important business streets of the 
west division. Ogden Ave., beginning at Union Park, ex- 
tends in a southwestern direction, curving slightly to the 
westward, and passing Douglas Park to S. 40th Ave. Hal- 
sted St. is the principal north and south business street of 
the west side. It runs in a straight line almost the entire 
length of the city. Blue Island Ave. branches from Halsted 
St. near its junction with W. Harrison St. in a southwesterly 
direction to the lumber district. Milwaukee Ave. is given 
over almost entirely to the German element. Beginning at 
the river and Lake St. this thoroughfare extends in a north- 
westerly direction far beyond the city limits. 

Washington Boulevard is undoubtedly the handsomest 
residence street of the West Side. It is part of the great 
boulevard system of the city. W. Monroe, Adams and 
Jackson Sts., with the exception of portions near the river 
are lined with beautiful residences. Ashland Ave. extending 
north and south is an elegantly paved street containing 
many of the handsomest houses on the West Side. Douglas 
Boulevard, extends from Garfield Park and Colorado Ave. 
south to Independence Square and thence east to Douglas 
Park. Next to Washington Boulevard this beautiful thor- 
oughfare is the most popular residence street of the West 
Side. There are three beautiful parks on the West Side, 
Garfield, Humboldt and Douglas, The first is reached by the 
Garfield Par^ cars of the Lake St. and Metropolitan Ele- 
vated and the Madison St. cable. Humboldt Park is reached 
by the Milwaukee Ave. line^ selecting a North Ave. or the 
Division St. electric or bv the Humboldt Park ^division of 



91 



;he Metropolitan Elevated, trailer. To reach Douglas Park 
;ake the Ogden Ave. or 12th street car. 
The North Side. — Clark St., the leading business 

treet of the North Side, extends from the river north to 
iVorth Ave. and thence northwest to the city limits, pass- 

ng Lincoln Park. The streets intersecting Clark near the 
river are occupied by manufacturing establishments and 
hide, wool and leather houses. Chicago Ave., Division St., 
Clybourn Ave. and Larrabee St. are all business thorough- 
fares traversing a section of the city inhabited by a foreign 
population. The principal North Side residence streets are 
La Salle and Dearborn Aves., Rush, North State, Cass, Pine 
Goethe and Schiller Sts., Lincoln Park Boulevard and last 
but not least the Lake Shore Drive. This beautiful boule- 
vard is practically the beginning of the Sheridan Drive 
which extends twenty-five miles north. Among the many 
beautiful residences on this boulevard is the Potter Palmer 
mansion on the corner of Schiller street, a magnificent struc- 
ture presenting the castellated effect of feudal architecture. 
Another notable dwelling is the Archiepiscopal Palace at 623 
State St. At North Ave. Lincoln Park begins, reached by 
Clark St. Limits car.

' AUTOMOBILE RIDES. 

One of the pleasantest ways to see the parks and residence 

istricts of Chicago is to take one of the automobiles of the 

fhicago Automobile Sight-Seeing Co., which start from the 

Vindsor-Clifton Hotel daily, between 10 a. m. and 4. p. m. 

South Side Auto Trip Distance 25 Miles. 

Leaving the Windsor-Clifton a stop is made at the Palmer 
louse, to take on passengers. Turning south (left) on State 
St., passing the Fair Store (right) and the new white stone 
i.rcade Building (left), corner of State and Adams. Turning

tore (left). The Great Northern Theatre (left). Facing 
Juincy is the new Post Office, described elsewhere. Turning 
eft on Dearborn pass the Great Northern Hotel (left). Pass 
he Monadnock office building, corner Jackson and Dearborn

,000 people are employed. Turning left on Jackson Blvd., 
topping at the Great Northern Hotel, where, looking down 
the right is seen several of Chicago 's sky scrapers. Down 
Tackson Blvd. (east) to Michigan Ave., passing, cor. State 
.nd Jackson (right), Spaulding's Jewelry Store and the great 
lothschild Store. Past the Wellington Hotel, cor. Wabash

he Hotel Stratford, cor. Michigan and Jackson, where op- 
)osite (left) will be seen the new 15-story Railway Exchange 
Juilding, in which are quartered the general offices of sev- 
sral of the great railway trunk lines. Turning south (right) 
m Michigan Ave. we have the Grant Park on our left, ex- 
;ending down as far as the Illinois Central Ey. Station. 
The Lake Park front is being filled up and will be more 
;han doubled in width. To the left, as we turn south on 
kEichigan Ave., will be seen the Chicago Art Institute, de- 
icribed elsewhere. Leaving the Stratford Hotel, passing 
louth on Michigan, we see at the first corner (right) the 
)rown stone building of the Chicago Club, one of the 
vealthy clubs of the city, near which is the Auditorium Ho- 
;el of world-wide fame. "^ Just across the street (south) from 
;he Auditorium is the Auditorium Annex. Between the 
\iulitorium and the Commercial Club is the Studebaker 
iSuilding, containing the Studebaker Theatre, and also a 
valuable art collection. A visit to the Pompeiian Room of 
:he Auditorium Annex in the evening will be quite well 
i\rorth while. It is planned by Marshall Field to build a 
no,000,000 building in Lake Park, just south of the Audi- 
:orium, in which will be housed the great museum now con- 
tained in the old Art Building of the WorLl's Fair, in Jack- 
ion Park. Near the south end of Lake Park will be seen 



130 CHICAGO, ILL. 

the equestrian statue of General John A. Logan. A littl 
further south is the Joseph Rosenl)erg fountain^ erected ii 
memory of that philanthropist. Opposite (right) will tj 
seen the Young Women's Christian Association Buildini 
At the south end of Lake Park is seen the $2,000,000 depd 
01 the Illinois Central, which contains the general offices c 
that system. Opposite (right) is seen the Hotel Normandil 
Opposite (left) is the building which formerly housed Dovj 
ie's Zion. Further south, passing under the Illinois Central 
bridge, we will see (right) the brown stone building of th 
First Eegiment Armory, which contains one of the finest ba. 
rooms in the city. The district we are now passing throug 
was at one time one of the swell residence districts of tl 
city, but is now given over to boarding and rooming houst 
almost exclusively. Just after crossing 18th St. we see 
solid gray stone building which was at one time the res 
dence of Hankins, the famous gambler, beyond which, on tl 
corner (left) is the Calumet Club Building. Corner of MU 
igan and 22nd (left) is seen the brown stone building of t'. 
Lexington Hotel, formerly owned by the Knights of Pythia 
Corner of 23rd and Michigan (right) is the Hotel Metropo!; 
adjoining which you will see Immanuel Baptist Churri 
which was moved some sixty feet south some years ago. ^ I 
the next corner (right) is the building of the Standard Cl4 j 
Opposite (left) Christ Church, a massive gray stone buildiifc 
Further on (left) is Plymouth Church, made famous by Ee 
Frank W. Gunsaulus. Here we begin to enter the bett 
residence district of the city, and at intervals the palati 
homes of Chicago are seen. The large, white building, N 
2838 Michigan Ave. (right), is the residence of H. N. Higi 
botham, formerly a partner of Marshall Field's, one of CI 
cago's multi-millionaires. The large, red building. No. 28- 
Michigan Ave., was formerly the residence of the gre 
plunger, Chas. G. Gates, who has transferred his residen 
to New York. Passing further, at 30th and Michigan, t] 
IPotomac Hotel and Lakota Hotel will be seen, and we tu: 
east (left) to Indiana Ave. Thirty-first St.^ which we cros 
is one of the principal retail streets of the south side. ( 
the corner of 33rd and Indiana Ave. (left) will be seen 
massive stone building, the Synagogue. We turn sou 
(right) on Calumet, one block to 35th; in this block the 
are the residences of many wealthy Jewish families. Ea 
(left) on 35th St, we see the undertaking establishment 
Furth & Co., where some 70 of the Iroquois Theatre fire vi 
tims were laid out. South, to the right, on Grand Blvd., t 
enter a fine district, the street being very wide, lined wi 
beautiful residences in which live many of Chicago's millio 
aires. It is one of the finest boulevards in the city. Th 



CHICAGO, ILL. 131 

:^i boulevard extends south, from the point where we 
III enter it, some two miles to Washington Park, and is an 
t exceedingly popular automobile drive. The large white 
i stone building at corner of 42nd St. is the Lakeside Club, 
I a wealthy Jewish organization containing but one gentile 
I member. The gray stone building, No. 4415, is the residence 
L of Mr. Gaynor, the National Democratic Committeeman. 
I Along about 43rd St. we will begin to see considerable vacant 
^ and very valuable property. At the south end of the boule- 
fe.vard is the entrance to Washington Park. Facing the boule- 
pjvard will be seen the Washington Monument, an equestrian 
11' statue of General Washington, recently erected. The red 
f», building on the right, at the entrance of Washington Park, 
?sis the Orphans' Home. In Washington Park the driveway 
winds in and out through the wooded walks of that beautiful 
•i) breathing spot of the city. The Park is about two miles in 
K length and something like one mile in width, and is a great 
resort, being one of the public playgrounds of the city. On 
Saturday afternoons crowds numbering one to two hundred 
thousand will be seen on its lawns. Its trees are planted 
90 as to be as close an imitation to nature in its wild state 
IS I have ever seen. The lawns are well-kept, and every- 
hing is beautiful. There are tennis and ball grounds, and 
musements of various kinds. Stop is made at the big stone 
structure in the Park, the Refectory. This institution is run 
by the South Park Board, and refreshments, such as soft 
I' drinks, cigars, etc., are served, also meals, at very nearly 
I J cost. Through the trees (to the left) leaving the Eefectory, 
|,. will be seen the boat house of the lagoon, a brown stone 
I ' building. To the right, leaving the Refectory^ is the speed- 
^ .way of the park, on which are speeded some of the best of 
I i Chicago's horses. The lagoon is about ll^ miles in length. 
L Eow boats are provided at a rental of 15c per hour. The 
-; lagoon winds in and out, being overhung with shade trees, 
P f and a row on it is very pleasurable. At all hours of the day, 
j 'men, women and children can be seen rowing the boats, while 
I: on Saturdays, Sundays and Holidays one will sometimes be 
^,! obliged to wait for an hour to get a boat, so much are they in 
Sf: demand. To the right of the lagoon, just before passing to 
t.'the Midway, the steel '^ air-ship" of the Sans Souci (an 
i ■amusement resort described elsewhere) comes in view. Cross- 
i ing Cottage Grove Ave. we enter upon the famous Midway 
of the World's Fair, now a wide park-boulevard. Passing 
down the Midway we will see (left) the buildings, 30 in 
number, of the Chicago University, one of the finest uni- 
versities in the United States, to which John D. Rockefeller 
has donated over $7,000,000. Marshall Field donated a large 
portion of the land on which the university stands. It eov- 



132 CHICAGO, ILL. 

ers an area of some 30 acres. Passing the Chicago Uni- 
versity we see adjoining (left) the Hotel Del Prado, a fine 
family hotel, beautifully situated. Crossing under the tracks 
of the Illinois Central, which road does the largest suburban 
business of any railway line in the world, we enter Jackson 
Park, the site of the great World's Fair. The large building 
to the left after entering the Park is the old Art Palace of 
the World's Fair, now housing the Field Museum, one of 
the most complete collections of its kind in the United 
States, and one which every visitor in Chicago should see. 
To the right in the park we see the lagoon, at the head of 
which is a boat house from which may be obtained row 
boats at 15c per hour. Trips can also be taken on naphtha 
launches. Jackson Park is one of the most beautiful in 
Chicago, as well as the most extensive. There are none of 
those famous ''Keep-off-the-grass" signs here, and one can 
go anywhere and do anything that is right that he cares to 
do. Turning to the right, passing the front of Field's 
Museum, one can gain some idea of the extent of this in- 
stitution which is entirely filled with collections of various 
kinds. Turning again we pass up "Lovers' Lane," along 
the beach; pass the German Building of the World's Fair, 
now a refreshment pavilion. As we pass the German Build- 
ing we see in front, across the bay, the South Chicago Steel 
Works with its many stacks and smudge of smoke. Turning 
back into the park we see (left) the Christopher Columbus 
Caravels, part of the World's Fair exhibits, being a duplica- 
tion of the ships. in which Christopher Columbus made the 
trip which resulted in his discovery of America. 

Turning back toward the city we pass through the Mid- 
way and by another route, through Washington Park, to the 
right of the lagoon. Passing the Park power house (right), 
which furnishes the light for the park. A little further on, 
the flower gardens and the conservatory to the right. Leav- 
ing Washington Park (north end) we enter Drexel Boule- 
vard, one of Chicago's show streets. Just after entering we 
see (right) the Drexel Monument. Drexel Blvd. is beauti- 
fully parked with plenty of shade trees, lawns and gravel 
walks. The boulevard is lined with beautiful residences, 
having extensive grounds. No. 4851 Drexel is the residence 
of the great packer, Swift. The stone building at No. 4605 
is the residence of Mike McDonald, formerly a famous gamb- 
ler, now in the real estate business. Eight after passing the 
railway track at 41st St. we see (left) the Christian Science 
Church. At the junction of Cottage Grove and Drexel we 
turn west (left) into Oakwood Blvd., a very nice residence 
street, not, how^ever, to be compared with Drexel. Several 
churches and many apartment houses are along this street. 



CHICAGO, ILL. 133 

The large eliurch with the three arches being the Holy 
Angels; next to it the Holy Angels Conservatory of Music 
and Painting, this being a Eoman Catholic institution. En- 
tering Grand Blvd. we turn north (right) toward the city. 
We pass fine residences and apartment houses. Entering 
Prairie Ave. at 30th St., we pass the residences of many 
of the merchant princes of Chicago, No. 2808 being a resi- 
dence in which the three Partridge widows live. At the 
right, corner of 26th St., is Mercy Hospital. Corner of 
Prairie Ave. and 20th St. (left) the large red brick building 
is the residence of Colonel Lowden, Geo. M. Pullman's son- 
in-law. The square in which it is located is known as ''mil- 
lionaires' block." On the right, the third building, is the 
residence of Marshall Field. Looking down on 18th St. 
(right) toward the lake, is the monument commemorating 
the Port Dearborn Indian massacre which occurred on this 
spot, and right back of this monument, on the corner of 
18th and Prairie, is the house of the widow of Geo. M. 
Pullman, of Pullman Palace Car fame. For the most part 
the residences in the ''millionaires' block" are not particu- 
larly pretentious, but they house the owners of a great deal 
of Chicago's wealth. Turning west (left) out of Prairie 
Ave. on 16th, and north (right) at the First Eegiment Ar- 
mory building on Michigan Ave., we return to the city, at 
our starting point. 

The above trip shows you the best residence district of 
the city, and is very well worth the small sum of money it 
costs. The ride through Washington and Jackson Parks 
alone is worth the price of the trip for those who care to 
see beautiful things. A competent guide accompanies these 
excursions, explaining all points of interest, and every mo- 
ment of the trip will find some new thing to attract atten- 
tion and furnish ample topics of interest and amusement. 
North Side Auto Trip. Distance 18 miles. 

Leaving the Windsor-Clifton Hotel, on Monroe St., we 
turn north on State St., where are the great retail stores of 
the city. At the first corner to the right is the department 
store of H. G. Selfridge & Co. More people pass this block 
(corner of State and Madison) than any other in the city. 
Opposite Selfridge 's is the dry goods store of Mandel Broth- 
ers. On the opposite side (left) is the Boston Store. Next 
corner (right) is the great store of Marshall Field, covering 
an entire block; this Is the largest retail store west of 
New York City. An interesting description of it is given 
elsewhere. A stop is made at Field's, after which, passing 
under the Elevated Road, we see on the northwest corner 
of Washington and Michigan the Chicago Public Library; 
while facing the street on Michigan is the temporary Gen- 



i;^4 CHICAGO, ILL. 

eral Post Office Building. To the right, opposite the Li- 
brary, is the largest mail order house in the world, Mont- 
gomery Ward & Co.; their establishment occupies the entire 
block with the exception of the corner, which is a City Fire 
Department Station. Turning north (left) on Michigan Ave. 
we pass into the wholesale grocery district. To the right 
we see the Randolph Street Viaduct, which leads over the 
Illinois Central tracks to the Lake Front, where is located 
the Columbia Yacht Club Building. The following are some 
of the most prominent wholesale houses we will pass. 
Sprague, Warner & Co., the third largest wholesale grocery 
house in the country; Thomson-Taylor, the largest tea house 
in the city. No. 56 Michigan is the Diamond Match Co., be- 
ing the largest match manufacturers in the world. Opposite, 
W. J. Quan & Co., wholesale grocery. The wholesale grocery 
house of Wm. Hoyt & Co. is on the corner (left) facing the 
river. It occupies the site of Old Fort Dearborn, which was 
established in 1804. On its front, facing the river, is a* 
marble tablet commemorating the fact that this building' 
was the site of old Fort Dearborn (see p. 41). f: 

Facing the street is the Goodrich docks from which thej 
Milwaukee boats leave, and opposite are the docks of the 
Dunkley-Williams Co. From the bridge will be seen (right) 
the great building of the Hibbard, Spencer, Bartlett Hard- 
ware Co., one of the largest wholesale hardware houses in the 
country; they have another large building facing the 
river, corner State and South Water. On the first corner 
after leaving the bridge (right) is the Spaulding-Merrick 
Tobacco Co., a very large wholesale tobacco house. Just 
back of this is the Jas. Kirk soap house. Looking up to 
the left will be seen, on Michigan Street and Dearborn 
Ave., the Criminal Court Building. We are now on Rush 
Street, where there are many cheap boarding houses, lodg- 
ing people employed in the department stores, principally. 
We turn east, and see on the corner of Rush and Ohio the 
brown stone and brick building of Hotel Virginia, one of the 
best hotels on the north side. Turning north (left) on 
Lincoln Park Boulevard we pass several very nice apart- 
ment houses as well as some very pretty residences. The 
large stone buildings on both the right and left corners is 
the North side station of the Chicago City Water Works; 
Lincoln Park Boulevard is very nicely parked on both sides 
and paved with concrete; it is one of the nicest drives on 
the North side. On the corner (left) an ornamental iron 
fence surrounds the beautiful residence of Judge Northrup. 
A block further on is the magnificent brown stone residence 
of the late Potter Palmer, of Palmer House fame: it is 



CHICAGO, ILL. 135 

modeled after the style of the old world castles. Nearby 
is the residence of Honore Palmer, Potter Palmer's son. 
Along this block are many very beautiful residences. Turn- 
ing to the right into Lincoln Park we skirt along the Lake 
on the famous Lake Shore Drive, "the" drive of Chicago. 
To the right we have the shore of the lake with its curl- 
ing breakers, while on the left are the beautiful grounds 
and the lagoon of Lincoln Park. This lagoon extends up 
and down the park, winding in and out. The beach along 
the end of the Lake Shore Drive is a very popular fishing 
spot and will be found to be lined with disciples of Isaak 
Walton almost any hour of the day. On the left, about 
half way up the Park, will be seen, across the lagoon, the 
General Grant statue, erected by the City of Chicago. On 
holidays and Sundays the lagoon and park presents a most 
animated and beautiful spectacle, its lawns being covered 
with thousands of pleasure seekers, while up and down the 
ake front dart little launches and great lake steamers, 
he bridge under which we pass bears the fearful appella- 
ion of "Suicide Bridge** for the reason that it is a 
avorite spot with those who prematurely desire to investi- 
gate the mysteries of the Hereafter. The large smoke- 
stack (left) just beyond the bridge is the stack of the 
Park power house. All the Lincoln Park policemen arc 
mounted on wheels. The Park policemen may be dis- 
tinguished by a gilt spike on top of their helmets, which 
has given them the name, in Chicago, of "Lightning Eod 
Men.*' As we cross the bridge over the lagoon will be 
seen (right) the Daily News Sanitarium for sick mothers 
and babies, a most worthy institution. This bridge is the 
starting point of many sculling races, south on the lagoon. 
Turning to the north (right) we see (left) the statue of 
Garibaldi. Opposite (right) is the Daily News bathing 
beach. Further up (right) is the Diversey bathing beach. 
Opposite the beach (left )is one of the lagoon boat houses, 
where row boats may be had for a nominal sum. 

Turning around (left) back towards the city, is seen 
(right) the residence of Mrs. Augusta Lehmann, widow of 
Mr. Lehmann, who was the owner of the Fair Department 
Store. Mrs. Lehmann owns much valuable real estate, and 
is considered one of the wealthiest women in the City of 
Chicago. 

We very much doubt if the beauty of the drive back to- 
ward the city through Lincoln Park is surpassed anywhere 
in the country, the trees meeting overhead and forming a 
bower of green. At the intersection of several roads will 
be seen the monument of Lynn. A little further on (left) 
the Park conservatory, which has many rare specimens of 



136 CHICAGO, ILL. 

plants and is surrounded by beautiful park grounds laid 
out in beds of flowers. Farther across are the Zoological 
Gardens, with the elephants and other animals in plain 
view. At the end of the gardens will be seen Schiller's 
monument. Here as in most other of Chicago's public 
parks, are few of the obnoxious '' Keep-off -the-grass" signs, 
the city taking the ground that parks are of little value 
until the people can us© them. To the right is the statue 
of Hans Christian Andersen, and a little further on the 
statue of De La Salle. Further on, to the left, we see the 
statue of Abraham Lincoln in a wide stone cove. 

Leaving the Park we return to the city and our starting 
point. This trip, while not as extensive as the South side 
trip, is very pleasant and interesting, and well worth the 
small sum of money it costs, showing you as it does a large 
part of the city as well as the swell residences, the North 
Shore Drive and Lincoln Park. 

Excursions by Steamboat from Chicago. 
There are several very pleasant trips that can be made 
by steamboat from the city, reaching points along the 
Lake Shore that are picturesquely beautiful and where all 
the accommodations of the typical summer resort are to be 
found. One of the best of these is 

South Haven. This resort lies 80 miles across Lake 
Michigan, and is reached by the lines of the Dunkley- 
Williams Co., whose boats leave the Rush Street dock on

mately four hours. The smaller boats that run at night, 
however, consume over six hours on the trip. Leaving the 
Eush Street dock of the Dunkley-Williams line, we see at 
the end of the dock (left) several soap factories, while op- 
posite the dock (right) are the cold storage and freight 
houses of the Michigan Central Ey., where thousands of 
tons of freight enter and leave the city daily. Just below 
this (right) is seen the great grain elevators of the Illinois 
Central Ey. Opposite (left) the warehouse of the Hibbard. 
Spencer, Bartlett & Co., and the New York Central Ey. 
docks, also the Canada Atlantic Steamship Co. 's docks. Just 
beyond this (right) the yards of the Kentucky Coal Co., 
with their immense ricks of coal. The square yellow build- 
ing (right) just below the coal yards is the Great Western 
cold storage building. At the head of the south breakwater 
just beyond the first break in the levee is the Government 
life saving station. The ship anchored just inside of the 
breakwater (right) is the Dorothea, the Illinois Militia 
training-ship. The office of the Columbia Yacht Club is in 
an old boat raised out of the water and braced so as to 
appear to be on stilts, just back of the first break in the 
levee. Opposite this (left) w^e will see the south end of the 
famous North Shore Drive. Leaving the docks we see (left) 
the Groveniment breakwater with the red light tower at its 
south end. As we enter the open lake we see (right and 
left) several little structures surmounted by light towers, 
the same being the cribs of the Chicago v/ater works. 

As we leave the harbor the throb of the great engines 
increases, and we are off. Slowly the boat gathers speed 
until billows of water roll back from her prow, while a 
mountain of foam is in her wake, and we are running at a 
speed of 20 miles per hour, which will be maintained until 
South Haven is reached. 

The boat ''City of South Haven" is a large and very 
commodious one for excursions. There are three decks open 
to passengers; on the lower or main deck is an elegantly 
appointed dining room, social hall, and "between decks 
forward." On the promenade decks are the state roomy 
and main and balcony cabins, elegantly fitted up with easy 
chairs, lounges, etc. An orchestra discourses music, and 



138 CHICAGO, ILL. 

every moment of the voyage will be replete with interest. 
We may look down into the engine room, with its flying rods 
of steel, and into the hot depths of the stoke hole, with its 
glare of light and sweat-begrimed workers. The Dunkley- 
Williams people allow no li(iuors or gambling on their boats. 
On the boats of the Michigan Steamship Co., however, there 
is a bar where liquors are dispensed. Land is out of sight 
for some three hours on the voyage, and there is hardly a 
moment of the trip that has not something of interest to 
claim our attention. 

Arriving at South Haven the boat passes up the Black 
Eiver half a mile to her docks, where the passengers disem- 
bark. The docks of South Haven are as fine as any on the 
lakes, and perhaps might even be said to be the best of any. 
The scene on these docks during the latter part of July and 
first part of August, when the fruit and peach crop of South 
Haven is being shipped, is of great interest. Wagons stand 
in line frequently for a quarter of a mile waiting their turn 
to be unloaded. 

Hacks and busses of the various hotels and resorts, of 
which there are about 150, meet all the boats and trains. 
South Haven has 5,000 population and is a surpassingly 
beautiful city. There are shade trees everywhere; they in 
many instances almost join tops over the streets and thus 
form a tunnel of green. One can obtain at some one of the 
many cottage resorts board and lodging for from $7 a week 
up, or from $1.50 a day up on transient's rate. Of the 
numerous hotels the Avery Beach and the Sleepy Hollow are 
unquestionably the best, the former lying in the city and 
the latter being on the beach 1% miles from the town. The 
Avery Beach Hotel is a large, well-appointed house, front- 
ing the lake and but 150 feet from the curling breakers. 
The scene from its many wide verandas as the sun is set- 
ting is very, very beautiful. First there is a spot of light 
at the rim of the horizon which appears to bow up from 
the lake and to be of white-hot silver; this lasts but a couple 
of moments, when a bar of light extends out across the lake 
which deepens m color as the sun descends, until finally it 
has all the appearance of a shaft of fire reaching from the 
beach to the horizon — a charmingly beautiful sight. The 
Avery Beach lies between the hotel and the waters, and is 
one of the finest bathing beaches I have seen on the lakes, 
being a pure, fine, white sand, in which children may play 
for hours without soiling their clothing. There is no 
gravel. A child five years old can wade out 50 feet on the 
first bar, there being three depths of water. In the evenings 
there is dancing at the Avery Beach and Sleepy Hollow 
hotels aiid in the open-air pavilions scattered about the 



LlilCAGO, ILL. 139 

city; the charge at these pavilions beiug 5c per couple per 
dance — at the hotel it is free. The Sleepy Hollow hotel lies 
up the beach 1% miles and is named after Sleepy-Hollow-on- 
the-Hudson, which it in many respects resembles. The lover 
of the_ picturesquely beautiful will here be satisfied. The 
house itself is large and commodious and is situated on a 
bluff some 50 feet in height overlooking the lake. It is 
surrounded by charmingly beautiful grounds, containing some 
ravines and nooks that would make worthy subjects for the 
pencil of a great artist. The Sleepy Hollow beach which lies 
below the hotel is of pure white sand and there are three 
depths of water, the first bar being not to exceed 18 inches 
in depth. The rates of the Avery Beach Hotel are $3 and 
up per day; per week^ single, $14 and up; per week, two 
iu a room, $10 and up. The rates of the Sleepy Hollow 
hotel are, transient, $2.50 to $3 per day; single, $12 to $15 
per week; two in a room, $10 to $12 per week. The drive out 
to the Sleepy Hollow Hotel is over an avenue lined with 
great shade trees, which almost touch over the roadway. 
i5usses run at frequent intervals. Fare 5e. 

Trip up the Black River by launch. Round trip fare 20c. 
Boats leave midway dock every 15 minutes, 9:15 a. m. to 
9:30 p. m., and until midnight if there are passengers. Time 
of round trip 1^2 hours. The large stern-wheel boat is per- 
haps the best in M'hich to make the trip. The excursion up 
the Black Eiver, which is a narrow and very crooked stream, 
up which launches go for 6^/2 miles, is a delightful one. 
There is very little current in the river and one can row up 
in a row boat if one so desires. On this trip we will see 
at the first clear space on the left bank the Cold Springs 
Farm, a fruit farm of 320 acres. Near its east end on the 
bluff above the river is the Cold Springs Hotel, the view from 
the observatory of M^hich is extensive and very fine. Along 
the right shore runs the Kalamazoo branch line of the 
Michigan Central Ry. Just before passing under the rail- 
way bridge the river branches^ we taking the south arm. 
Above the bridge the branches of the trees interlock over 
the stream and form a bower of green which is very beauti- 
ful. On the right bank .iust below the wagon bridge is a 
very strong sulphur spring. At the head of navigation 
there is a little pleasure resort with amusements of various 
kinds, and we may remain here as long as we wish since a 
boat back can be caught at any time during the day or 
evening. I can heartily recommend this trip up the river. 
It is one of the most charming little excursions imaginable 
for such a small sum of money. All in all the trip to South 
Haven is one that can be recommended; the expense- being 
very small and the trip most beautiful. One who cares to 



140 CHICAGO, ILL. 

spend a few days in South Haven will find it an ideal summer 
resort. Those who prefer rail travel to water can reach 
South Haven via the Pere Marquette Ky., the time and fare 
being the same. 

Excursion to Milwaukee by Boat. 

In summer the Goodrich and Barry lines run excursions to 
Milwaukee about as follows: Goodrich Boats leave Chicago 
daily except Sunday, 9:30 a. m. (10 a. m. Sundays); leave 
Milwaukee returning 4:30 p. m. (5 p. m. Sundays); fare $1 
round trip; excursion tickets limited one day. 

Barry Line Boats leave Chicago daily at 8 p. m.; arrive 
Eacine 1 a. m.; Milwaukee 5 a. m. Leave Milwaukee 8 
p. m.; arrive Eacine 10:30 p. m.; Chicago 5 a. m. Excur- 
sions Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at $1 round trip; 
tickets unlimited, the service being excellent. The larg- 
est and best boat in this service is beyond question the 
Christopher Columbus of the Goodrich Line, which leaves 
their dock at the Eush Street Bridge on the above schedule. 
This immense boat is of the * * Whaleback ' ' type, 362 feet in 
length by 48 feet beam. She has a single screw 13% feet in 
diameter, triple expansion engine of 3,500 H. P., the steam 
cylinders being 28 inches, 42 inches and 70^2 inches respec- 
tively in diameter, by 42 inch stroke. 

The boat is fitted with every modern convenience and is 
rated to carry 4,000 passengers^ and can carry 3,000 without 
crowding. She has four decks open to passengers and dining 
room where meals are served a la carte, tables for basket 
lunches, lunch counter, barber shop, news stand, bar, soda 
fountain, etc. There is an orchestra concert in the main 
cabin during the trip up and back. She has ample fire pro- 
tection and is fairly well provided with life preservers. The 
rates in the dining room are rather high and it will cost 
$1 and up for a good meal, but one is at liberty to carry 
luncheon and tables are provided free of cost for those de- 
siring to use them. The run is made from 5 to 7 miles off 
shore and if a good glass is taken along the shore towns 
can be plainly seen. Every moment of the trip w^ill be 
replete w4th interest and the cool breeze of the lake will 
be a most pleasant relief from the stifling heat of the city 
Arriving in Milwaukee the boat is towed up the harbor for 
about one mile and anchored. There will be two hours to 
spend in the city and tliere are a number of ways in which 
this time may be pleasantly consumed. Tallylio coaches meet 
the boats and for the sum of 25e take one over the city, 
past the following points of interest: City Hall, Academy 
of Music, County Court House^ Statue Solomon Juneau, 
Breakwater, Elks' Monument, Water Works, Franklin Park, 



CHICAGO, ILL. 14] 

City Reservoir and Park, Bird's Eye View of City, Old 
Folks' Home, Grand Avenue, Soldiers' Monument, Washing- 
ton's Monument and many of Milwaukee's best buildings. 
Should one care to imbibe of the fluid M^hich ''made Milwau- 
kee famous" there are the Schlitz Palm Gardens, near the 
docks, as well as any number of other similar places. Where 
they don't sell beer in Milwaukee is more of a curiosity 
than where they do. There are a number of most pleasant 
street car rides^ one of the best being to board a Farwell 
Ave. car on Grand Boulevard, going west, and ride out to 
the Old Soldiers' Home, several miles. This trip is through 
beautiful streets and pleasant country, passing Calvary Cem- 
etery on the way. The boat departs at 5 p. m. on the return 
trip, arriving in Chicago at 10 p. m. Every moment of the 
excursion is replete with enjoyment and amusement. 

Other Steamboat Excursions. 

There are other excursions by boat which can be made 
in one day; among them the best is, perhaps, the St. Joseph 
and Benton Harbor trips, made by the Graham-Morton boats. 
These places are very pleasant, and are reached in about 4 
hours, the distance being 62 miles. The docks of this line 
are at the foot of Wabash Ave. The Graham-Morton boats 
are of the old type of side-wheel steamer now almost obso- 
lete. The South Haven and Milwaukee trips which are de- 
scribed in detail are all in all the best unless one cares to 
spend several days at considerable cost in which case there 
are many charming trips available to such places as Sault 
Ste. Marie, Mackinac Island, Grand Haven, etc., as well as 
the delightful resorts of Lake Superior. 

Excursions by Pvail. 

There are too many excursions out of the city by rail to 
attempt to give them in detail. Almost all of the roads 
run excursions, during the hot weather, to points on their 
lines which present greater or less attractions. The best of 
these places seem to be on the lines of the Chicago & North- 
western f Phone No. Central 721), Chicago, Milwaukee & 
St. Paul (Phone No., Harrison 3843), and the Pere Mar- 
quette (Phone No,, Harrison 2890). Call up these offices and 
they will give you full particulars in regard to the points 
reached by their several lines. I can especially recommend 
two points, viz.: The Dells of the Wisconsin,' at Kilbourn 
City, on the Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul, and Devil's 
Lake, on the Northwestern. There are good hotel accommo- 
dations at these places at $1 — 2 per day, $4 — 12 per week. 
The railway companies will tell you all about them.

South Side Boulevard System. 

Int'ormation furnished by Henry G. Foreman, President 
South Park Commissioners. 

There are in the South Park District 17.28 miles of boule- 
vard, varying in width from 66 to 200 feet. The most not- 
able of these boulevards are: 

Grand Boulevard— Two miles in length, 198 feet in width, 
having three driveways and four planting spaces, two ol 
which are oiy^ feet in width and the other two seven feetj 
each. I 

Drexel Boulevard— Two hundred feet in width, 1.50 milesj 
in length, with two driveways and one large central plant-j 
ing space ninety feet in width. 

Garfield Boulevard— Two hundred feet in width, 3.50 milesl 
in length, having two driveways and central planting spaces. 

Western Avenue Boulevard — Two hundred feet in width, 
2.81 miles in length, one park driveway and one large plant 
ing space. 

Michigan Avenue— From eighty to one hundred feet wide 
and from five and one-half to five and three-quarters miles 
in length; driveway 50 feet in width; planting spaces on 
either side varying from 7 to 17 feet in width; sidewalks 
8 feet in width. 

The other boulevards are much shorter and are 100 feet 
and less in width. 

The paving used in the various boulevards includes nearly 
all concrete. Michigan Avenue has at its northerly end creo- 
soted wooden blocks and sheet asphalt. South of 22nd Street 
it is paved with a surfacing of crushed granite. The other 
boulevards are paved with limestone macadam. 

The boulevards of the South Park system have driveways 
running through their entire length. The only improvement 
contemplated is the completion of the planting spaces, planta 
tion, and the construction of some curbing h^re and there. 
The only other imj^rovemeuts or extension is the one now 
being considered connecting Lincoln Park Boulevard with 
Michigan Avenue, by a committee representing the three 
corporate bodies interested. 

West Park and Boulevard System. 

The main Boulevard of the West Side System starts at 
Humboldt Boulevard and Western Avenue, extending west 
with a width of 250 feet, almost one mile to Logan Square, 
thence south 2,235 feet to Palmer Place, thence east (Palmer 
Place 450 feet wide) 1,725 feet, thence west (250 feet wide) 
2,836 feet, here entering and passing through Humboldt 
Park (area 206 acres), leaving the park at Augusta Street, 



CHICAGO, ILL. 143 

thence south (450 feet wide) to Grand Avenue, thence south 

(264 feet wide) 2,093 feet to Franklin Avenue, thence west 

i (width 350 feet) 3,635 feet to Garfield Square, thence south 

424 feet, where it crosses the Chicago & Northwestern track, 

entering Garfield Park (area, 170 acres). Leaving Garfield 

I Park at the southwest corner, thence south (Douglas Boule- 

j vard, width 250 feet) 4,162 feet, to Independent Square, 

: thence east (width 250 feet) 4,272 feet to Douglas Park 

1 (area 181 acres), thence leaving the south end of Douglas 
Park at its center, thence south (width 250 feet) 2,710 feet, 
thence east (width 250 feet) 1,150 feet, thence east (width 
250 feet) 3,657 feet, thence east (width 250 feet) 2,713 feet 
to Western Avenue^ thence south (width 250 feet) 1,323 feet 
to the Illinois and Michigan Canal, where it joints the 
Western Avenue Boulevard of the South side system. After 
leaving Douglas Park it is known as Marshall Boulevard. 
The other west side boulevards are but little more than 
asphalt paved streets, few of them being at any point more 
than 100 feet in width, and some as low as 70. The names 
of the other boulevards are: Washington Boulevard, ex- 
tending from the Chicago Eiver to the City Limits, passing 
through Union and Garfield Parks, width 80 to 100 feet; 
Jackson Boulevard, extending from Michigan Avenue to 
Garfield Park, width 66 to 88 feet; Twelfth Street Boule- 
vard, extending from Ashland Boulevard to Oakley Boule- 
vard, width 70 feet; Oakley Boulevard, extending from 
Twelfth Street Boulevard to Washington Boulevard; Ash- 
land Boulevard, extending from Twelfth Street Boulevard 
to Washington Boulevardj width 100 feet, enters Union Park 
at Washington Boulevard; Ogden Boulevard, extending from 
Douglas Park to Twelfth Street, joining Twelfth and Oakley 
Boulevards, width 70 feet. 

The parks and their areas aside from those above given, 
are as follows: Jefferson Park, area 7 acres; Vernon Park, 
area 6 acres; Campbell Park, area li/o acres; Wicker Park, 
area 4 acres; Shedd's Park, area 1 acre; Holstein Park, area 

2 acres. 

Some of the Early History of the City. 

Note — We are indebted to the courtesy of the Chicago 
Historical Society and the Librarian of the Chicago Public 
Library for the historical facts herein contained. 

In the year 1673 Sieur LaSalle and Father Marquette as- 
cended the Fox River, portaged across the divide and 
descended to the Wisconsin and the Mississippi Eiver, and 
down that stream to probably the Arkansas. Paddling back 
to the mouth of the Illinois they p.seended that river, en- 
tering the North Fork of the De^ PIsiues. which they named 



144 CHICAGO, ILL. 

the * * Chicagou, " arriving finally in our own Chicago Kivei 
which they called "Portage River," a name by which thi 
South Branch was known until 1800, and descended it 
waters to the lake. Arriving in Montreal, Father Man 
quette reported the discovery of the Chicago Portage anj 
said that if a canal were cut through a league of prairi« 
one could pass by boat from the great lakes to the Mif 
sissippi Eiver. Thus was our Chicago Drainage Canal prflj 
dieted in the year 1673. In 1674 Father Marquette returneij 
to the site of Chicago, and, being detained by illness, passe j 
the winter in a cabin near the present site of the Citj 
Bridewell (City Prison), he being the first recorded res;! 
dent of Chicago; though this is disputed from the fact tha| 
the cabin belonged to two French traders, Pierre Morea 
and a companion, who was a surgeon as well as trader. Thi 
site of this cabin has been pretty well fixed at the junctio 
of the West Fork and the South Branchy and it was th 
first building on the site of the City of Chicago. LaSall 
again visited the place in 1682. He describes the **Ch: 
cagou" river as "the junction of several rivulets or meadoA 
ditches, being navigable for about two leagues to the edg 
of prairies, a quarter of a mile westward." 

In 1778 there lived in a cabin on the site now occupie 
by the Kirk's Soap Factory near the corner of Kinzie an 
Pine Sts. (North side), a negro trader named Jean Baptist 
Pont de Sable. This negro occupied the csbin for 17 years 
finally selling it to Le Mai, a French trader who in tur 
sold it to John Kinzie (for whom Kinzie St. is named), i 
1804. Jean Baptiste was the first man to acquire title t 
Chicago land, which has held good to this day, and for thi 
reason was our earliest city father — Chicago's first landet 
citizen. In 1804 Fort Dearborn was established on the sit 
which is now the corner of Michigan Ave. and South Wate 
St., there were then four huts or cabins here, one occupie 
by John Kinzie, one (on the west side) by Guarie, a thir 
near the Fort by Omillemette, and the fourth by Pettel I 
The south end of Kush St. bridge lies about in the center o 
the grounds enclosed by the Fort stockade, a large part o 
its site having disappeared in the widening of the rivei 
The lake then came within 100—200 feet of the Port. Th 
old "Rope Ferry" was here established in 1837 and maiu 
tained down to 1857, the rope being lowered to let larg 
boats pass over it. In the latter year a boat fouled on th 
rope and several were killed, after which a wooden bridg 
was erected. The first capital crime committed in Chicag 
was in 1812 when John Kinzie killed John Lalime; the bone 
of Lalime are now to be seen in the Museum of the Chicag 



CHICAGO, ILL. 145 

Historical Society. In 1812 General Hull ordered the gar- 
rison to abandon the Fort. They marched out of the gate 
at 9 a. m. August 15th and on down the Lake Shore. When 
they had reached a point at about Eighteenth St. they were 
attacked by the Indians and defeated, a large number of 
them being killed, together with some women and chil- 
dren. A monument at the foot of Eighteenth St. com- 
memorates their death. At the time of this disaster the 
Indian Camp was on State St., north of Marshall Field's 
store, quite near the Fort; the next day the Indians set 
fire to the Fort and it was entirely destroyed. The victims 
of this battle lie buried in the Lake Front Park. The Fort 
was rebuilt in July-August, 1816, on the same site, one 
building remaining intact until the great fire of 1871. From 
1816-1830 the infant metropolis gained some fifteen cabins 
and less than 100 population. During this time the only 
buildings north of the river were a house called ''Cob Web 
Castle," junction of State and North Water Sts., and the 
Kinzie cabin near the corner of Pine and Kinzie St., the 
tract north of the river being covered with trees. The 
Kinzie cabin was of hewn logs with a veranda on its front; 
at its rear were two large cottonwood trees, while in front 
in a row near the water edge were four fine poplars. It was 
later a store and Chicago's first postoffice. In 1831^ the mail 
being carried from Detroit twice a week on horseback. John 
Kinzie died in the Fort and his ashes, after being twice 
moved, now rest in Graceland Cemetery. It was about 1830 
that the real growth of the city began. In 1834 the first 
public school was opened in the Presbyterian Church (W. 
side of Clark St., between Lake and Eandolph), it being 
taught by Miss Eliza Chappell, who in 1834 married Jere- 
miah Porter, who was the first minister. The public meet- 
ing hall was over Peck store. South Water St., S. E. cor. 
La Salle, the same being a two-story wooden structure. The 
first Sunday School met in this building. The first serious 
fire burned three buildings, cor. of La Salle and Lake, loss 
$1,200. The first regular sermon was preached by Eev. Isaac 
McCoy, Oct. 9, 1805. The first church was built by the Bap- 
tists in the fall of 1833, it being a two-story wooden struc- 
ture, near cor. Franklin and South Water Sts. Soon after a 
Catholic church was erected near S. W. cor. State and Lake 
Sts., in the open tower of which a small bell was hung — the 
first bell in Chicago. As late as 1834 and even several years 
thereafter, wolves were plentiful, one being killed in Dear- 
born St., opposite the Tribune Building. In 1835 the first 
County Court House was built, S. W. cor. Clark and Ran- 
dolph. In 1832 the lot S. W. cor. of Clark and Washington 



146 CHICAGO, ILL. 



sold for $61, which was considered high. Lots 3 and 4 (160 
ft.) S. W. cor. Lake and Market Sts., sold in 1830 for $102; 
their value today is probably near a half million. "Tlie 
Rialto" was the first regular theatre, being the upper story 
of a wooden building on the site of Nos. 8 — 10 Dearborn St. 
The first Chicago Daily Newspaper, **The American," was 
issued April 9, 1839. The first Locomotive landed in the 
city Oct. 10, 1848, being "The Pioneer," a 10-ton engine 
which was brought over the lake on a brig. It is now on 
exhibition at the St. Louis World 's Fair. The first Bailroad 
was from Chicago to Elgin. The first Tavern was the 
"Green Tree," which stood at the N. E. cor. Lake and Canal 
Sts. There was a "Wolf" Tavern, which antedated it 
somewhat, but it did not amount to much as a hotel. The 
"Green Tree" was a long, two-story building facing the 
river. Chicago's first jail was built of logs set on end with a 
small frame addition, located N. W. cor. City Hall Square. 
The Stage Office in 1844 was located S. E. cor. Lake and 
Dearborn, a long two and a half story frame with a long; 
sign on the cornice, reading "General Stage Office." The 
first School House owned by the city was a two-story shingle \ 
roof affair abutting both street lines S. E. cor. 'Madison, 
and Dearborn, the present site of the Tribune Building; to 
the south 100 ft. was a rail fence and back of it an open 
common with a few trees scattered around — a feeding place 
for cows; this was in 1844. It was called the Rumsey 
School. Up to the time of the fire, 1871, the main business i 
streets were Lake and Water Sts., the original name of State 
St. was Vineennes Road.
