To the tax-payers of Allen County :

you to know how the county affairs Lave
been conducted during the last year, and

A proposition is on foot to construct
a canal from Chicago to Detroit.
The distance is 175 miles, and the cost
estimated about6,000,000. It is pro
posed to make it large enough to float
the largest vessels on the lake', and will
save 600 miles of water transportation.
It is now believed that the Ashtabula
bridge had been tampered with by vil
lains, for the purpose of securing plun

roborated, by the fact that several of the

We have received a copy ot the New
Year's edition of the Kansas City Jour
nal of Commerce, and it is a mammoth
sheet sure enough. It contains a splen
did map of the city, fine engravings of
the principal buildings, and reading mat
ter enough for a large book. As a speci
men of newspaper enterprise, it has cer
tainly never been surpassed.
The Legislature has now been in ses
sion for nearly two weeks, and beyond
the election of State Printer, but little
has been done. The time, so far, has
been principally taken up with buncombe
speeches and resolutions, and the result
will be the passage, at the close of the
session, of a lot.of crude and illy digested
laws, purely from want of time to gie
them due consideration. We hope, that
when two three of the members have ex
hausted their surplus gas, the body will
settle down to legitimate business.
It would make the average tax-payer
squirm to hear the members talk over
their plans in reference to public im
provements, and the appropriations they
intend to favor. The Ossawottamie asy
lum will ask for $250,000 or more; the
Topeka asylum for about $100,000; the
State University for $75,000 ; the Agri
cultural College for $40,000, and five
normal schools, that are to be, for $20,
We find the above in the Topeka
correspondence of the Kansas City Journal
of Commerce, and trust that it is a some
what exaggerated statement. If, however,
any such spirt of extravagance as is in
dicated prevails among our legisla
tors, we advise them to put down
brakes a little, and go slow in this ap
propriation business during the present
session. These public institutions never
intend to lose anything by not asking
for enough, and if allowed to get all they
claim, would bankrupt the State. The
asylums for the blind, the deaf and
dumb, and the insane, must of course,
be sustained and kept in running shape,
1 but it is no time to enlarge very exten
sively bnildings already erected, or to
put up new ones. The Agricultural
College should receivo limited appropri
ations from the State until the necessary
buildings are finished and properly fur
nished and the bulk of its land sold,
after which time its endowment fund
should make it self-sustaining. In re
gard to the several normal schools, if the
buildings are completed and suitably
furnished, they should also be made self
supporting by charging a moderate tui
tion fee. Teaching is as well paid in
Kansas a3 other kinds of labor, and
teachers should pay the expense neces
sary to obtain a knowledge of their pro
fession. Besides, we believe that small
appropriations to the different counties,
if the State is to expend money at all
for the benefit of teachers, for the pur
pose of holding institutes, would be pref
erable to concentrating it all upon a few
The average Kansas tax-payer is not,
just now, in any too prosperous circum
stances, and alt appropriations not im
peratively necessary, should bo post
poned until a more convenient season,
an4 better tiroes.
The item, "Poor Account," containing
as it does the largest amount of any one
item (not fixed "by law) has rececived
the careful and close attention of the
commissioners and other auditing officers.
"The poor we have always with us," and
I think no tax-payer in the county wishes
to shirk the duty or providing for these
unfortunates who by sickness, or other
misfortune, have been compelled to ap
peal to tho authorities for assistance.
This item includes the salary paid the
Superintendent of the Poor Asylum
($00.00). There has been in the Asylum
most of the time during the past year,
not more than two paupers, and much ot
the time, but one, while the county has
paid the sum of $755,70 for temporary
paupers (this includes, however, a small
amount paid for medical attendance on
paupers at the asylum). It is a ques
tion with the Commissioners how can
this expense be lessened, and the poor be
properly cared for? These accounts
have originated almost entirely in the
cities of Humboldt and Iola the latter
furnishing the amount of $308.30, and
the former 511. o tne remainder is
mostly for material furnished to keep
the asylum in repair all being included
in the pauper account. It is the opinion
of those who have given thesubject con
sideration, that if the asylum was more
centrally located, and nearer the cities
mentioned, the expense of keeping tem
porary paupers would be greatly re
duced. I am of the opinion that auy
proposition, having for its object, the re
moval of the Poor Farm to a more desir
able location, would be favorably con
sidered by the Board of Commissioners.
The next item that I think calls fur
some explanation, is that of roads. There
has been paid for viewing, surveying and
locating county roads, the sum of $644.
69. Of this amount, $518.35 was to sat
isfy a judgment against the county in
the case of Watson et al vs. County
Commissioners, together with costs. The
present Board of Commissioners found
the judgment unpaid when they came
into office. They also found a suit
already commenced in tho District
Court, and judgment was rendered for
$36.94, making a total of $605.39, paid
on judgments bequeathed to them by
their predecessors. The item"witnes-e-V'
$16.50, was made in the last-mentioned
In the item "Books aud Stationery," is
included the sum of $261.25 paid to the
Clerk of District Court aud Kegister of
Deeds for indexing aud docketing the
records ot their predecessors in olnce.
When I came into the office of County
Clerk, I found the record of "'Original
Entries of Land," very incomplete
many pieces of government laud and
homestead had been placed upon the tax
roll, and sold for taxes. By order of the
Board of Commissioners, I procured from

There was dropped from the tax roll
for 187G, 13,600 acres of government lands
that had been erroneously assessed and
sold for taxes. There has been refunded
to holders of tax sale certificates in con
sequence ot such sale, about $2,000.
Most of this laud was entered up for
taxes in tho year 1872.
The cost of jurors the last year has
been unusually large, beiujr $1,028.50

The present year the county will be
called upon to refund the amount re
ceived on the sale of the "Osage Ceded
Lands" for taxes. This will compel a
disbursement of about $2,500, the bur
den of which will be upon the school
districts lying on the south line of the
county, as each fund that received its
proportion of the amount received at
the sale will be charged with the amount
refunded. No special levy will be re
quired tor this purpose.
The county is now in a good condition
financially, having sufficient funds to
pay all indebtedness, and see no reason
why the taxes will not be steadily de
creased. I am yours, respectfullv,

Amoxg the many localities in Kansas
which offer peculiar advantages to the
Home-Seeker, Allen County, as regards
Location, Soil, Water, Timber, Cheap
Laud, Convenience to Market, Facilities
lor Transportation, Towns, Settlements
and Society, stands second to no other in
tho State, as a brief reference to the above
mentioned particulars will show;
This county is second from the East
aud third from the feouth line of the
State. It is one hundred miles south
east from Topeka, sevcuty-live miles
south from Lawrence, one hundred south
west of Kansas City and twenty-five
miles west from Ft.fc'cott and lies mainly
within the celebrated Neosho valley.
The soil of the uplands is a black or
dark red calcareous loam of great depth
and inexhaustable fertility, while that
of the bottoms is the black alluvial de
posits usually found in such localities.
and varying from four to ten feet in
depth. .No better soils tor the successful
production of all the grains, grasses,
fruits aud vegetables of this latitude can
be found in the State.
The county is watered by the Neosho
river, which ilows through it from N.
V. to S. E., and by its triuutarips in the
middle and western portion and by the
Maruiaton and Osage in the east. Each
of these streams is skirted by a belt ot
excellent timber aud Hows through fine
alluvial bottoms from half a milo to a
mile in width. Water for domestic pur
poses is found in springs and wells oi
One of the special advantages which
this county possesses over the treeless
plains of Western Kansas is found in
Us timber, coal and stone. The average
width of timber belts is half a mile or
more, and the" quality is excellent, fur
uinliiug a reasonable supply for all prac
tical purposes, as is shown by the fact
that the price ot good hard wood iu the
tun ns seldom exceeds .'.50 per cord. In
the eastern and less timbered portion ol
the county coal of fair quality is mined
in quantities sullicieut for domestic
purposes, and will no doubt be devel
oped a tne wains ni tne county require.
For building and fencing stone of an
exct'lleut quality abounds in many local
ities, yet so disposed as to interfere but
little with the culli ration ot the soil.
As elsewhere stated this county is well
iiSted to all the productions" of this
latitude, but is especially adapted to the
growing of wheat, corn, fruit, and to
slock raising ; all of which succeed ad
mirably, and particularly the last. The
itiexhaiistable supply of native grasses
both for pasturing and for hay oilers to
the stocic raiser a most inviting field, and
makes this one of the most certain and
remunerative branches of husbandry
that any one can engage in.

Notwithstanding the county has been
settled for many years and contains a
population of over 7,000, large bodies of
unimproved lands are yet for sale. These
lands belong to the L. L. & G. and M.
K. & T. railroad companies, and are
offered for sale cheaper tfian such lands
can be bought any where in the United
oiuies wiiere equal advantages exist.
Land capable of producing twenty to
twenty-five bushels of wheat or 50 to 75
bushels of corn per acre is sold at 3.20
per acre for cash, or 4.00 on time. Al
most any year, after being reduced to
cultivation, a single crop "will pay the
entire cost of the land.
During last season many parties in
this county with lens than half their
land in cultivation raised corn enough
when sold at 25c. a bushel to pay for the
whole tract. Any one looking tor a new
location can not fail to appreciate this
fact, especially considering the fact that
those lauds are surrounded by old set
tlements, and are convenient to railroads,

Iola, the' county seat of Allen county,
is pleasantly located near the co'nfluence
ot Elm Creek and the Neosho River,
and on the L. L. & G. railroad. The
Neosho at this point only needs to be
improved to furnish good water power
for mills and manufactories. Good pure
water can be obtained at a depth of from
fifteen to twenty-five feet. It has three
churches, Baptist, Methodist and Pres
byterian, and an excellent school build
in?. The different branches of business
and the professions are well represented;
and property can now be purchased at a
reasonable price which must steadily
increase in value.
The Iola Mineral well is at this time
the chief attraction of the town. The
wonderful cures performed by this water
have proved that its healing properties
are second to none in the country. A
hotel and bath rooms have been put up
at the well, and the afflicted from all
