ARRIVAL OF EXCURSIONISTS.
A Party of IUlnoialans Arrive in Town—
Tbe Texaa Fever Spreading Rapid-
ly—Fort Worth the Metrop-
olis of Texas Railroads.
Some fourteen or fifteen excursionists
from Galesburg, Knox county, Illinois,
arrived in town this morning. The
party were In charge of Mr. A. V. Shaw,
a well known land agent residing at
Oalesburg. They arrived at the union
depot at 0 in the morning, and remained
In town until 2:30, when they departed
for Wichita Falls, via the Fort Worth
and Denver road. The excursionists
are mostly farmers and merchants, and
belong to the better class of people.
Some of them ore prospecting, and It
Is more than probable that
Texas will offer attractions enough to
keep them here.
In conversation with a Dkmochat re-
Korter Mr. Shaw said the Texas fever
ad struck central Illinois witii the
force of a cyclone. Ntarly every one
wants to come here. All the great re-
sources of Texas ofler inducements but
tbe prospects of going into the cnttle
business is too much for the average
sucker. Mr. Shaw said that he was an
old bund at the business of conducting
excursions; He had been-steering peo-
ple here for seven years pirat. The de-
tachment that arrived to-day is only
the advance guard of several lar-
Ser bodies preparing to follow,
ir. Shaw estimated the distance from
Oalesburg to Wichita at 050 miles. Two
or three of the party will go to Waco,
but the majority will go to,the terminus
of the Denver and Fort Worth road. He
said that one Immigrant coming to
Texas was in an average worth more
money and goods than ten going to Da-
kota. Texas, said he. is fortunate lu
the class of immigrants seeking homes
there, aud from present appearances the
day Is not far distant when there will be
a settler for every acre of vacant land.
The excursionists will remain at Wich-
ita for a week or tan days, and then re-
turn home. Mr. Shaw expects to ac-
company several excursion companies
here during the summer.
Mr. J. J. Chew, the clever and effi-
cient general ticket agent, said In an-
swer to a question from the Democrat
man, that he never remembered so much
travel over railroads passing here as at
the present time. The great flow was ia
the direction of the west, aad the people
emigrating seemed to be of the very best
class. Mr. Chew said this was the best
station on the roads passing here, and
wss vsrjr likely to maintain lu supre-
