Humboldt Park people specially invited. If you want the Best use Reasner s horse aloof dressing. Agents wanted to sell reas Ner s goods ill City and country. 862 West North Par few sections it if the City have had such a wonderful and rapid growth. To Day the City limits extend about equally East and West of the Park. Except for a Pew tracts of land held by estates for minor heirs and Long sighted speculators this Section shows restless activity. With elevated electric and Cable railroads together with the c., m. Amp St. P., we now have ample intramural trans a a por tation. More buildings being erected than in any other Section of the City it seems As if everybody was settling about Humboldt Park. Our religious social educational and business advantages. Down town merchants. And they Are 1i0111 it and showing an Earnest disposition to please their resident patrons. The Quick development of any locality is never productive of Tom most desirable class of buildings for residence use. Thousands upon thousands of our property owners came out to Humboldt Park As poor people merely wage workers seeking a cheap investment in a lot or two Whereon to erect a modest Home. Yet they looked Forward to tile future to a time when they should lie out of debt and be Able to replace the temporary dwelling with a modern residence. And that is just what hundreds of them Are doing to Day. Nor Are they risking one Penny in a speculative investment in taking such a step. 1 Hus it is that those who reside in other sections of the City localities which Twenty live years ago were considered aristocratic find when Uliey visit Humboldt Park Section that we have More and better Fine modern style residences Ilian these same old Tine districts can boast of. And not Only that but our streets arc newly paved and everywhere All the Best improvements to be desired arc being employed to add Beauty and Comfort to the situation. There 110 longer exist any Frog Ponds swimming holes ice lakes or other do Trio. Rating drawbacks to the Humboldt Park Section. Time was and that too Only a few years ago when the Choice residence a Trees Ere the Prairie dumping grounds for old refuse from the Eastern wards. But not a vestige of such a condition is to be seen to Day. The Artisan Well and Shedd h ice Pond have almost faded from memory. The swimming holes made by the Stone quarries Ove on Western and Chicago avenues have Long fince been filled up and the locality is to Day novel metropolitan Center increased a thousand fold in value and being rapidly improved. Our transportation facilities. A protective ass elation. A Park protective association has been formed with Headquarters at 112-114 Dearborn Street with John 1. Wilson attorney h. A. Goodrich treasurer we. R. Harper r. S. Thompson h. A. Hangan w. D. Boyce w. Heineman w. G. Jackson and f. J. Wilson trustees. Although but recently organized this Asso elation has succeeded in securing the passage of an ordinance at a meeting of the City Council april 25th, 1895, which forbids circuses menagerie caravans shows of Mon sters freaks of nature and revolving wheels carrying passengers to be set up or exhibited Quot in or upon any building lot enclosure ground or place any part of which is within fifteen Hundred feet of any of the Public Parks wholly or in part located within the City of Chicago. The value of this ordinance to the people of Chicago cannot be Over estimated. Not Only do such exhibitions detract greatly from the value of property in their neighbourhood but they also when located near any Park practically shut out respectable people who dare not go among the Rowdy and disreputable crowds that these places invariably attract. The original intent of the Parks was that they should be places in which Good citizens thei wives and children could gather for rest quiet recreation and enjoyment without fear of molestation. Such order As is essential to Security would be utterly wanting were there near at hand attractions that draw and hold the ruffians the Lawless the Drunken and depraved their profanity obscenity and unseemly conduct would Shock decent people into staying away altogether from the Beautiful Park the Pajk protective association has been so greatly encouraged by its Success in the passage of the ordinance that it has decided to enlarge its operations and to this end invites the operation of All Good citizens who have an interest in the preservation of the Parks along the lines of decency and order. Everyone is invited to become a member without charge. No financial responsibility attaches to the act the association being maintained entirely by voluntary contributions. Each one is privileged to subscribe something for the Good and important work but his name As a member is preferable to a subscription without membership. Further info nation concerning the objects and Aims of the organization will be cheerfully afforded. Those desiring of operate in the Enterprise Are cordially invited to Send their name and address to the Park protective association 112-114 Dearborn Street Chicago. A retrospective View. Just a Short time ago within the memory of our old residents old not in years for men of 35 and 40 Are but in the prime of life All this thickly populated territory about Humboldt Park was either vacant Prairie land or Here and there fenced in and used Lor pasturage. It was a favorite resort Foi Quot City Quot sportsmen Many of whom to Day relate marvelous tales of their Hunting conquests for Jack snipe Pluver rail ducks wild geese Etc., As recent As fifteen years Back. Indeed every sunday during the game season this Region resounded with a continuous fusillade of musketry created by scores of ambitious game Hunters. What a change has been wrought the world s fair the most stupendous and magnificent Enterprise of modern history appearing and disappearing like a heaven born dream leaving Only its impressive Beauty in our memory can scarcely lie entitled to comparative consideration when contrasted with the almost spontaneous and substantial growth and Ever continuing development of our Section of the City of Chicago. A Broad assertion to make but All Quot ground us is ample proof that simply demonstrates the wonderful fact beyond the least vestige of contradiction. Twenty five years ago there were but few scattering houses on Milwaukee Avenue West of Ilal sted Street and All these Beautiful streets and avenues which to Day one beholds teeming with Busy life were As Mere pasturage lands too far removed from the City to be of any other use. But there were men who had Faith in Chicago who anticipated its growth and sure development and who held steadfast to their convictions. Their belief and Prophesy was that Chicago was destined to become the greatest City in the world. Tiow rapidly is their prediction coming True when such men As Potter Palmer and Henry Greenbaum and their conferees sought and accomplished the establishment of our great system of Public Parks and Boulevard they acted with prophetic Wisdom and we Are to Day enjoying these inestimable blessings Al most unaware of whom to Praise and whom to thank therefor. But in the hearts of til people exists an imperishable gratitude. To detail step by step the advancement of this Section would require a stupendous is sue of our journal far beyond our space limits. We can therefore but Call to mind the wonderful transition from barrenness to the present state of affairs. Just a few years ago say fifteen before the Mammoth sewer was put in West North Avenue people were paddling about what Are now our beautifully paved Side streets such As Washtenaw tall Man Etc., on planks to get to the main Pike roads that led to the thoroughfares Down town. What a different state of affairs now exist of r presen t situation. A great Many people living in the City Are prone to imagine the Section known As Humboldt Park As being ail out of town suburb under exclusive township organization. But let them visit our locality and behold the very Best of substantial City improvements in both streets and buildings and Survey til marvellously Complete facilities Here afforded for Choice residence and business investments and their anticipations so falsely drawn be fore personal inspection of our situation quickly change to enthusiastic admiration. No evidence appears of any Quot wild cat Quot speculative Boom. On the contrary Only the most steady substantial manifestations of per manent Progress is presented. It is almost an every Dav occurrence to behold the beginning of erection of new business and department houses ranging All the Way from $3,000 to $30,000, and Here and there special attention is attracted by some Mammoth building Cost ing from $75,000 to $100,000. Take the Viking building for instance. Here is an improvement on the Northeast Corner of North and Washtenaw avenues a 50-foot frontage 011 North Avenue extending to the Alley 011 Washtenaw. The erection of this building last year was looked upon by Many people As being a very risky investment of Money. Yet last week this properly was sold for $85,000 a for a greater sum than the valuation of any 50-foot frontage has Ever been placed at on the Northwest Side of the City. The entire building is filled with tenants and this prop erty Quot is a Good investment Quot and that fact stimulates capitalists 10 immediately Consic plans for the erection of similar buildings and Why not to Day two great Mammoth storerooms at the Corner of West Madison and Ilal sted streets stand vacant and their former tenants Are to be found located in the newer and More prosperous business districts such As Humboldt Park. These facts speak volumes in themselves a Survey of the retail business situation Chicago to Day reveals the fact that outside of a few great department stores whose popu parity is already 011 the Wane Down town Trade is slow and unprofitable in comparison with the progressive hustling business every Day existing upon our streets. Our merchants Are coming up abreast of the times. They Are no longer surrounded by a group of Prai Rie squatters As of a few years ago but fill their locality lastly improving and new and strange laces every Day appearing among Ali residents. This state of affairs could but pro Duce one impression and that is the necessity for Large and Complete lines of merchandise which they must offer in Competition with the no Man in America is More Quick to appreciate the possibilities of immediate and sure development of a locality by the introduction of improved intramural tru Sporta 1 Tion facilities than or. Charles t. Yerkes the great Street railway magnate. It must be said in nil Candor that while other and older established resident sections demanded Street railway improvements or. Yerkes did not neglect our Section of the City. We have been treated with liberality at his hands and to Day the companies of which he is president Are putting Forth stupendous efforts to afford us equal facilities to those enjoyed by the most favored localities. Horses have been discarded and the whole territory is being intersected with Cable and electric lines and we Are positively a sacred upon Good authority that in a Short time oar people will be amply accommodated with a Complete system of Transfer tickets. The elevated roads will soon be in full operation the metropolitan having two branches in our territory and in All probability the Lake Street Quot a Quot will soon be constructed to Humboldt Park. In addition to this the Milwaukee amp St. Paul on Bloomington Road is contemplating putting on a system of suburban trains that will eclipse anything running into the City. Our religious social and educational advantages. While our rapid and stupendous growth in population is a subject much to be remarked upon we take an exceptional Pride in mentioning the important fact that our people have Iii a neglected the organization of religious social and educational institutions. Quot True our Church buildings Are not so elaborate and pretentious As those in the older sections of the City but they Are More numerous when the per cent of population is considered Aud we believe they Are As fully efficient and accomplish just As Good work in the master s service. Every prominent Creed is represented and we do not know of a single Church organization but what is in a flourishing state of Progress. We Are among Iod s people even at Humboldt Park and our pastors Are both Able and Earnest workers in their several Fields. And we can say for the social organizations that every worthy society has a splendid representation and that these organizations Are doing a wonderfully Good work. They bring together our Best people of Many nationalities so far As birth and descent is concerned to become better acquainted with each other and As a result become better citizens More steadfast and Loyal to the institutions existing under our grand system of a free and representative government. With such a Complex representation of nationalities it would seem to the casual observer to be quite impossible to harmonize the various classes. But it has been done. The old lines of nativity Are being broken every Day and we All have the one great common ground to stand upon and that is the free soil of America Whereon exists our True and most cherished kingdom of earthly and spiritual inheritance. Nor Are we deficient in educational advantages. It is the testimony of teachers 111 our Public schools that our children Are just As Apt and fully As ambitious As any scholars in the City. And our teachers rank with the Best. If there is one tiling More than another that lays close and dear to the hearts of our people it is our Public school system. While you May find Many of our citizens who came to America seeking a better Opportunity to secure a Home and who have succeeded and arc surrounded with comforts though unable to read or write the English language or any other save that of their own foreign nativity you la find that these citizens know and appreciate the advantages of a Good education and that their children Are unfailing attendants at our Public schools. 1hisi Ness Prosperity. If you Are a stranger to this Section of the City it will be Well Worth your while to visit Humbolt Park and its Vicinity. Visit it today visit it next week then next month and then next year. Mark closely in your Book of memory the conditions presented at each visitation or better still write it Down in your note Book. Then make comparisons from the first visit to the others and we assure you there awaits you a wonderful Surprise. Even the keen and practice Eye of be newspaper reporter is bound to blink with astonishment. Just you try it or if you know All about it or think you do you ought to remember the address of some acquaintance someone who has rigged you about living out 011 the Prairie with the geese a and wrap up this copy of the vindicator Ami Send it to him by mail. Annual a picnic of St. Julie s reformed episcopal sunday school. The annual picnic of St. Luke s reformed episcopal sunday school occurred last saturday july 6th, at St. Paul Park some 14 Miles out on the Milwaukee Branch of the c., m. Amp St. Ry., at a Little station called Morton 111. By 9 30 a. 111. The depot at North California Avenue and Bloomington Road was Quot All surrounded Quot by the children teachers and a goodly sprinkling of the old girls and boys who were going along As a sort of advisory committee to help regulate affairs. However when the train did pull up Al the station the special coaches were quickly filled and a Large consignment of Good things were hustled into the baggage car after which the conductor Quot winked his other Eye the engine began to cough and snort and Quot holler Quot out to Quot Clear the track and the Engineer turned 011 the i steam hydrant and we just sailed out right i Lively. Did we Quot holler Quot let id we sing and i shout you bet we advertised our presence in a Way that no Quot hungry eight in a bandwagon Ever announced the opening of a new clothing store on Milwaukee Avenue we were right in the midst of this glory going Quot hike Tacut Quot when a Quot Hull Quot lot of women and children got right in the Middle of the tracks at Humboldt Boulevard and began waving umbrellas and lunch baskets at the engine mail course he had to Stop or run right Over pm. But it was t his Day for killing people so he shut off the steam halted and took pm aboard. All this time the fireman was getting in his work and by the time we started from the Boulevard he had put a Quot head of steam 011 the boiler that just made the engine fairly stutter with Delight. Then we did Quot Light out Quot for keeps. I Tell you that Engineer knew what Lis children wanted a Good Swift ride and lie gave it to us so that it seemed Only a Jiffy before we readied St. Paul Park. The Park was Given up to our exclusive use and nobody came to disturb us or meddle with our affairs. 11 is a Beautiful place lots of great tall Trees High Hills with the North Branch of the Chicago River running through the grounds pretty buildings swings All Over the place tables benches chairs Etc. In just 110 time we took Possession and we went right into the business of enjoying ourselves. The old folks seized upon the Kitchen and refreshment Pavilion and soon had a commissary department in full running order. They soon had Lea Coffee soda water ice Cream and such tilings ready for our Comfort. The women folks run this affair to suit themselves and it suited everybody else i guess even if they did set our superintendent or. Foreman and or. Brindle and or. Richardson at washing and hustling pails of fresh water and kindling Wood Etc. They did t grumble a bit. P raps they were afraid to or had been brought up to do such things without letting 011 it did t suit pm. Or. Murray acted As Peanut peddle and he kept the boys in his class pretty Busy. I suppose he gave Emall the peanuts they wanted to eat As salary for services thus Ren. Dered. I tried to get in on that Deal but the scheme would t work. He raised the sign Quot no vacancies in this Well about noon the women folks had the tables just loaded with Good things to eat and drink and i Tell you us children proved to them that we appreciated their kindness. Our teachers kept a constant Eye out for our pleasure and joined in our games with As much de. Light As if they were Little boys Anil girls themselves. We Ain t got a bit of fault to find on this account. And the men and women folks that came along were just As Good to us As if we were All their own children. It it of course we behaved ourselves awful Nice. They just seemed to imagine we were hungry and thirsty All the time. T never had so Many invitations to Quot Dine out Quot before. I think 1 got away with As much of the Good things including ice Cream cake soda water Etc., As was healthy for any boy in fact i cat so much 33.00 a year in Adran Quot to. Per copy. Lead up to within fifteen Foet of the finish where she fell Down and nearly smashed 3 whole crowd of us. But mrs. I Timber did t fall Worth a cent.

Mrs. Gallop was clearly in the a banking institution lbs Humboldt i Ark. Park july 8, 1895. Editor Indica for a permit me to express my thanks to you for calling Public attention to the needs of our people for a Good reliable banking institution. As a business Man handling considerable amounts of Cash i have often Felt the necessity of the accommodations a Bank affords. In my contracting business i often receive checks of Large amounts and am compelled to practically waste a half Day or so in going Down town to get them cashed in order to make up my pay Rolls. To make a modest estimate of the actual value of my lost time in chasing after this business of cashing checks during the building season i can safely say that $100 would scarcely cover it. My men do not want a Bank Check in payment for their salaries nor is such a Legal tender. They want the ready Cash and 1 am obliged to get it or them. The re Are 110 merchants about the Park that can or would Cash my checks which amount to from $500 to $1,000 a week nor is there Ang Good reason Why they should thus trouble themselves to do me. Such a favor. I am one who wants a Good Bank established at Humboldt Park and i will take a few thousand dollars Stock �11 such and help to induce others to do the same. I give you my name and address but desire you should withhold same until the scheme is More fully developed. Push it along. Yours truly contractor.
