To the Editor of the Eagle:
In my lust letter I ipoke of the rich farm
inc: lanu in Pratt county. It is a beautiful
countrj- and I believe will, in a few years,
be rich and thickly settled. One peculiarity
of rratt county has been that of being fav
ored with rain when it was dry weather in
adjacent counties. It lias been settled about
six years, but not until the last year has
there been a general rush for the vacant land
there. The government land has now all
been taken and in the older parts of the
county good farms arc bringing round
prices. I don't think that any of the valley
counties can show better samples of grain
and vegetables than I saw on exhibition in
tho real estate offices there. I also saw some
very lino apples grown in the county. The
lcoploof that county are very enthusiastic
over their advantages and claim that they
have the best soil, climate and loca
tion on earth. Thev certainly are
not surpassed by many. Iuka is and always
has been the scat of justice for this enter
prising county. It is located six miles north
of its center and tho samo distance from tbe
Ninnescah river, When tho Iuka people
discovered that the Wichita & "Western rail
rond was to be built up the Ninnescah valley
and directly through the center of the
county, a number of the most prominent
business men organized a stock company,
under tho name of the Pratt Center Town
company, and proceeded to survey and plat
a new town on tho former sito of Anderson,
exactly in the center of the county, and on
tho survey of the railroad and tho banks of
tho river. Tho gentlemen comprising ths
town company are E. P. "Williams, Kobert
Anderson, T. E. Simpson, "WC P. Phser, C.
g. Calhoun and W. IL Cathlngham. A.
personal acquaintance with these gentlemen
leads me to believe that they could
build a lively town in tho wilds of
South America or any other place they
wished to. All of theso men are moderately
wealthy, and they are also plentifully en
dowed with pluck and determination, and
those characteristics which lead men to look
from cause to effect, stick their stakes and
then labor through all discouragements that
may come, until tbey make for themselves
success. These men are "way up" in gener
osity, Fociabilitv and good hard sense, but
are poorly provided with shiftlessnes, mean
noss and irencral cussedncss. On the 9th of
lust April these people built the first house
in tho new town of Pratt, and inside of a
week they had the creator part of Iuka on
w heels en route there. The town company
expended over live thousand d.illars before a
dollar was realized from the venture. Busi
ness lots were given to all who would put up
substantial buildings on them, and every
possible inducement was offered
to thoo desiring locations to
settle there. The spirit of enterprise and
determination thus evinced bv the founders
of the city, was caught by the new arrivals.
No distentions crept in to cause trouble
anions the business men, all have worked
harmoniously toctthcr for the ccncral uood
of tho town, and the result is that the town
now has a population of nboutsoen hun
dred people, everyone of whom believes
they hat e the best town in the state. There
nn now sewiity-tlirce business houses, sev
enty of which are owned by tho firms doing
business in them. The merchants all carry
heavy ftocks of goods, many of them us
largo as those found in towns of two thous
Tho city hat recently been incorporated
and Mr. T. K. Simpson, tho secretary of the
town company, elected as mayor.
There are two newspapers, tho Times and
Press, tho former under tho management of
Xaron & (Juillen, and the latter of Messrs
Thompson & Kclley. Like all the rest of
tho sensible people of this wide awake town,
ithcio papers are edited bj men without jeal
ousy of their rivals. There aro no quarrels
' between the papers.
i Ilrother Xaron is postmaster and county
! clerk and Mr. Thompson was recently
: elected to represent his county in the legis
lature. Pratt has already three church organiza
tions Methodist, Presbyterian and Chris
tian. Services arc held each week in a pub
lic hall until arrangements can bo complet
ed for building.
Tho public schools are presided over by
two teachers. The sessions aro held in n
hull. The newly elected officials are con
templating the erection of a substantial
school building at an early day.
There are three hotels; tho Adams, where
a stopped, being one of the best I have
found in Southern Kansas. It is owned and
managed by Kobert Anderson, a member of
the town company and probate judge of tho
county. Mr. Anderson is an excellent land
lord and is thoroughly posted on the town
The town company have contracted for a
roller flouring mill nnd are going to build
water works in the spring for the use of tho
It certainly docs seem a little out of the
usual line to see a 7-months-old town build
water works, but the money has been offered
by eastern capitalists who are interested in
the little city and of course it will be done.
In conclusion I will say that Pratt has less
evidence of intemperance than any town I
have seen. Kalth.

It i now an assured fact that tho proprie
tors of the "Saddle Rock" have left the city
for a more congenial clime. About a year
ago one of them came here and opened a
stylish, well appointed and first-class restau
rant and lodging rooms, in connection with
which was handled a nice line of confect
ionery, fruits and cigars, and during the
summer, ice cream, etc. The gentleman
had a s'Uish young family and for a time he
was prosperous and all went well; at least
that was the inference to bo drawn from ap
pearances. They were of rather haughty
and impervious natures, however, and did
not take or wear well with the public and
ere very long business fell ofl" and it was ap
parent that expenses which were large,
were not being met. The crash came, the
family was sent east, much of the furniture
wa- taken from the establishment, which
was remodeled and converted into a saloon
with restaurant attached and a partner was
taken into the Ann and the house rechrist
cned the Saddle Kock.

though the other creditor named might have

These are the only accounts yet heardof

The house then resumed the consideration
of the inter-state commerce bill.
Mr. Anderson supported Mr. Reagan's
substitute, contending that it would furnish
the pcoplo substantial protection against ex
tortion of railroad companies. Though he
did not think its provisions stringent enough,
he doubted whether they would bo effectual
in preventing the systems of pooling that
practically placed "the producers of the
country at the mcrcv of Gould, Vandcrbilt
and Huntington. If attempts so success
fully made heretofore bv railroad capitalists
should prevent legislation in states i" this
house or in the senate, and if they should
enter into the supreme court to prevent just
legislation, the people would damn them, and
capital would then be brought face to face
not with thinking men of the country,
but with a mob. Capital itself had more at
stake in securing equitable railroad legisla
tion than farmers and producers had. Mr.
Shivcly, of Indiana, Mr. Calkin's successor,
announced his emphatic approval of the
object sought to bo attained by tho jwr.ding
bill and Mr. Reiran's substitute, and his
equally emphatic approval of the Mibtitute I diers and non-commissioned officers reaon-

soldiers and sailors and war veteran associa
tion, called on Vice Prcsident-elet Hen
dricks this evening and tendered congratula
tions on the result of the recent election. In
response, addressing the spokesman of the
party, Mr. Hendricks said:
"I am very much gratified that you have
been made the medium by your comrades of
expressing ti ine the sentiments
of your own speech nnd of
tho address of your association that would
not doubt my sincerity did I say that I am
not grateful for the honor you havo done
me, and then congratulations from you and
your comrades are especially gratifying
when 1 consider the fact that you and I
shared in the contest last summer, the great
est political contot tho country has ever
known, With success we have come from
that field of contest, sharing in its responsi
bilities' and its glories. You havo referred
to one of tho characteristics of the contest
which I hope never to see repeated
in our country. The personal attacks
and slanders that have been indulged in are
unworthy American politics. 1 have not
been troubled to answer the misrepresenta
tions to which I have been subjected. Four
times theso fahricatigns have been before the
people of Indiana and four times they have
given them the lie. As to theso fabrications
I have not turned to tltf -jight or left and
will now but briellv report them. During
the first month of the war I found it neces
sary to correct one of the misrepresentations
of that time, nnd I used tho following lan
guage: Since tho war commenced I have
umtormlv said that the authontv of
tho government of the United States
is not questioned in Indiana, and I regard it
as the duty of the citizens of Indiana to
respect aim maintain that authority, and to
give to the government an honest andearnet
support in the prosecution of tho war until
in the providenceof God it mav be brought
to an hunorabla conclusion, and the blessing
of peace bo restored to our country, post
poning until that time all controversies in
relation to the causes and responsibilities of
tho war. o man will teei a deeper solici
tude in the welfare nnd proud bearing of the
Indiana soldiery in the conmcl ot arms
to which they are called than mvself.
The sentiments thus expressed guided my
conduct throughout the war. One of the
political leaders of the times has cliarged
that I failed in duty in opposing the law for
the draft. To opposition to the draft I plead
guilty. 1 found that army volunteers en
couraged by suitable bounties and during
the first month of my service in the United
Suites senate, I sjid: "I desirt"- to express the
opinion that congress ought to encourage
volunteering rather than to rely upon what
of necessity must be an unpopular measure
of government, the draft, I did not regard
the draft as a reliable support for tho army,
prior to that time 125,000 men had been
drafted, 6,000 entered the service under the
draft, 10,000 substitutes wcru furnished and
U0j were induced to volunteer bv counties,
which commutations enabled the depart
ment to pav a draft of $120,000, resulted in
30,000 soldfiTs in the field. I believed then and
have believed ever since, that volunteers
encouraged by suitable bounties relieving
them from anxieties nbout the provision for
their home', w-as the best assurance of sup
port to the army. The same politician to
whom I have referred, speaking of myself,
said: "He did not vote in favor of any
mca-urc that looked to carrying on the
war." I will refer to but two actt in the
senate in nnswer. On the 23d of April,

and hat since been wandering around in

is still as great ever.
New Yohk, Dec. 4. A "Washington

has recently visited Gov. Cleveland, says the
latter said to him: "I intend to resign on
the Cth of January, and as Lieut. Gov. Hill
will administer the executive for the next
year, I have turned the writing of a mes
sage over to him. After laving down the
duties of governor I shall listen to what
ever mv Democratic friends have to say, I
shall divide mv time between Albanv and
Buffalo until the dty arrives to go to Wash
ington. I intend to give due consideration
to the counsel of our party friend. It mav
be that when I enter the presidential otlltv
in some things I may not move as fast as
some Democrats wish, but I think it will
le better to go slow and be sure. Wc can
not hopo to avoid mistakes, but if we pro
ceed slowly we will make fewer mistakes
than if we" go with a rush.
