The Lato Land.Qrabbing Raid.
It was evident some months ago that the pres
ent session of Congre- would be distinguished
for the number and magnitude of the land-grabbing
schemes introduced and pushed with all the
perseverance of the lobby, nnd all the power
utid backing of a large monled interest. No
sooner did the t-esMon open than members of
Congress rushed forward with their bills, as
though fearful tbat a single acre would be left
open for pre-enipllon and homestead purposes.
Senator Tipton of Nebraska introduced five
bills for railroads in Nebraska and Colorado,
proposing tbe constrnctlon of 1.260 miles or rail
road. Ills colleague. Thayer, introduced only
one bill lor the construction of 170 miles of road.
Diadfurd of Colorado introduced two bills for
the construction nf 70 1 irjil. Eight bills have
thus far been introduced to construct railroad
in Nebraska and Colorado 3.939 miles of road,
and land grants to the extent of 34,207. HO acres.
Rice of Arkansas, introduced two bills one to
Incorporate the Central Indiana Railroad Com
pany, the proposed road to extend through the
Indian Territory a dUtiirjco In all of X0 miles:
tbe other is called the International Pacific, ex
tending from Cairo lo the Rio Grande, a distance
of 900 miles, for which a subsidy in the form of
a guaranteed interest Is asked on bonds at the
rate of $15,000 per mile. These schemes foot
up 1.250 miles; laud grants. 2.241.300 acres; an
nual interest guaranteed by Government. S810.
000. McDonald, of same State, brings forward
one bill for n railroad and telegraph line Irem
Cairo to a point on the Rio Grande, with a branch
from the former place te Lawrence. Kansas; dis
tance, 1.400 miles; land grant, 35,fc03.b00 acres.

three bills a n, starter one for a road from

A Now Through Routo to tho Atlantic.
A powerful combination of capital Is forming
for the construction of a new railroad roule from
the Atlantic to tho West. The Richmond Bit
pctch states that A. A. Low has hubseribed Sl,
000.000. Fik fc Hatch. S2.00q.000, C. P. Hunt
ington, S2.000.000. Gen. Joeph R. Anderson,
$1.0I0,000. nnd Messrs. Ill It. Winslow, Wain
wright nnd Stewart. $1,000,000 each, toward the
completion of the Chesapeake and Ohio Railroad.
Ten per cent, of the money subscribed was to
have been paid on the 1st of January, and the
work is to be done within two years. Tbe mouth
of tbe iiic Sandy, nt Its continence will) tbe
Ohio river, has been the objective point of the
enterprise, whioh would make its Atlantic term
iuns nt Norfolk. The main object, as ibe Wash
ington Ckrozidcss.?s, is tc brtr.g freight from s
point on tbe Ohio which U navigaDle for large
steamers. As the Rig Sandy is 150 miles further
down than Parkersburg the crossing place of
tbe IJaltlmoro and Ohio Railroad it it bellnved
the grater portion of the freight upon tbe Ohio
nnd its tributaries will be intercepted by the
new road; and by the time the Cbwa intake and
Ohio Railroad reaches this point, a railway from
tbe junction will have been built to Cincinnati
and a lateral branch to Lexington. Tbe new
road will have the advantage of a lighter grade
than the lialtitnore and Ohio, over only one
mountain chain, and through a milder climate.
The Chesapeake and Ohio will opn a new
rente to tho West, especially fr Kentucky,
Southern Ohio, Indiana und Illinois, and for all
Missouri, with Kansas aod tbe region stretching
thence even as far as tbe Pacific. It was origin
ally a Southern enterprise of little more than
lotiil srgnifivanee. controlled partly by Rtebmond
capital. Rat .Northern capital was recently ad
mitted to it by a vote of 51.000 shares against
5.099. sod the road oT a&tatni the

third scheme is for a road from Now Orleans lo
San Bias. ay 1.500 miles; iotereftl on bonds of
$25,000,000; amounting to SliOO .000 annually.
Nye ha Introduced one bill for a road from
Galveston to Fort Gibaun. with a branch to Lit
tle Rock; distance. 700 miles, and strange to say,
nothing elre. nkimatelr. then epealog a ecwl
route acro the coftlinnfit, with San Frandaeo
for its Pacific and N orfolk for ii Atlantic ter
minus. Some $10,000,000 in gold bare alrvady
been expended upon the road, between NoriolK
and the Greenbrier White Sulphur Springs; ami
a contract bas been entered into to complete and
(Hu in it to the Ohio river, a distance of 200 miles.

Tbe land grant crops out in another bill.
Then we havo what is known as the Interna
tional and Southern Pacific Railroad schemes,
proposing about 5.660 miles of railroad, calling
for land granU amounting to 119,541.200 aero,
with an annual guaranty of .Interest amounting
to 85.95S.000. Ramsey, of Minnesota, and How
ard of Michigan, want 9,527.007 acres for 1.3S5
miles of railroad. Pomeroy of Kansas, wants
30.734.400 acres for 1.200 miles of raiiroao.
Spencer, of Alabama, want C,240.Oi)J acres for
570 miles of roal. which ic rather tnodeit for a
-carpet bagger." Sundry members ask for
2,721.000 aeto for .Internal improvements. Sen
ator Cole only wants 19,000.000 sere for the
New York and Wmtem Triejranh Company,
whuch proposes to eUb!ib telegraph commnnl
cation between tbe Pacific Coast and China.
The bill does not stale whether tho sections will
be taken along tbe line orotberwl.e.

miles in length, Williams, or the saew Stalo,
wants 6C.400 acres for a road 100 miles loojf. ex
tending up from the mouth of the Colnmbk.
Then comes Senator Cole, with tbe rfqHel for
C4 1,200 ncrea for a railroad from Orovllle to
Virginia Ctjyj and the same number of wei
for the Santa Barbara branch of the Southern
Pacific Railroad. Then the Senator wants 1,920,

Stetefeldt now in operation in the English Com
pany's reduction works at Reuo. This furnace
was Inlly descrlbod In the Austin Kevcills and in
Ihe ilhting ami Scientific 1'rtns n year or more
ago, when tho principle was first testd in
Eattern Nevada on a working scale, with favor
able results. The furnace 7 a combination of
the idea of tlieGcrsteuboeferwitb cbloridx'tatlon.
Practically, Gerstenboefer's operation Is nothing
more nor le than the dropping of sulphuretted
ores down a chimney. Ily tbe time tbat tbe aul
phurfts reach the bottom, they are roatted very
nesiiy U9 effectually as in a revcrberatory furn
ace after eight honrs of exposure. This may
seem Ineredlble. but it is true a fact well estab
lished by yeara of Micccwful practice, at Frei
berg, at Manfeld. and at Swansea, and a dozen
other places In Europe and in South America.
The furnace is extensively In ue as a means of
manufacturing Mlpburic acid cheaply, by way
of by-product; and for that purpoao it has com
pletely swept the field.
Mr. Su-teleldt added salt to Ihe ore; altered
tbe furnace somewhat to adapt it lo the manipu
lation of tbe puxly and volatile rhlorides thereby
produced, and that is all. Precisely what ore
are worked with ueces, is n matter of vital mo
ment ; but there can be little donbt of any of
the simple or compound sulpburcu of the im
portant metals, excepting, perhaps, lhat of lead.
The cent of roasting must fall then if the furn

to about SC per ton. or !. This should enable
entire districts producing roasting ores, worth
only S3W per ton, to be worked to a profit

tbe elections for the year is of the most cheering

This does pretty well for a beginning. The
extent of land aked for is more than double the
area contained In the State or California. Sev
eral large schemes touching the interests of the
Pacific coast are not noUd. The Southern Pa
cific Railroad on the 35lh parallel will of course
ak for a confirmation of Its grant.
Now, many of thee enterprise have decided
merit. We have entered upon a new era of In
ternal improvements. So many schemes were
never brought forward so early in any previous
session of Congress. Rut if these schemes ore
to carry, or even a majority of them, in tho shape
in which they are brought forward, tbe public
Und offices mlehtas well be eloaed at one. The
beneficent provision of pre-emption and home
stead laws will be rendered worthies hereafter.
We want now a well defined public laud sys
tem. Let everv railroad of a national character
be helped by proceeds of public land, nut let
no more lands bo turnvd over to railroad or oth
er corporation. Such mormons cbemes as
these Involvo tbe disinheritance of tho people
It Is tlmo now for the Government lo intervene
and say that the pnbllc lands shall bo divweo
up among the people In homestead and pre-emption
traots, nnd tbat in no other way shall con-
vevanees bo made ol the national domain. Ann
