of Washington in some respeeta.
Fellows, brush up your claw-hammers,

The new Governor has selected
Secretary of State Smith as his pri

executive clerk. Pretty strong ap
pointments. There will he no laok of
hraiuaaud oilicial experience In the
cxecutive'd office this time.
Til R papers say that St. John will
take charge of the Olatha OateUe and
run it as a third organ. If the Ex.
Governor does not make more of a

their compliments to the Democrats

euggeetitiK to them that If they had a

there would have arisen no difficulty
about tha Mating of Mr. Ilrand aud
afterwards electing Carter Uarrieon

A wail, comes from the McPherson
lUpuMican in the hope that the re

purpoaes will make n change in this
Senatorial District. What'a the mat

Senator, and he Is a MePherson
eounty man Saline people feel very
comfortable, thank you, aud would be
very loth to be separated from their
ancient friends the McPhersonltes.
Thr statement is that the Demo
crats are going to have a daneing pa
vilion a quarter of a mile in length to
accommodate the boll given at the
time of Cleveland's inaugural. Give
them plenty of room. They have
been out of practice for a quarter of a
century. Weshould suggest also that
the Washington pavements be
widened, as the enlarging tendency of
the combined force of happiness and
bug juice will need that room.
With all the howl raised against
the Republican party, it must be ad
mitted by their opponents that there
are some honest men in the party.
A Republican postofflce administra
tion has been able to carry registered
letters through to their destination
with a low of but one letter to every
21,795 mailed. This most excellent
result is the smallest average of loss
since the registry system was organ
ised. Ixarhuch as President Arthur
cannot be present at the formal open

Bxpostlron, it has been arranged
that he will open the exposition by
telegraph anil atart the machinery
there by electricity from the Execu

will do th's in the presence of his

at a cost of 46 cents per pound as

be worth but 32 cents, and the state

HISTORY OF SALINE COUNTY.
From the pea of Dr. Wm. Bbhop In A. B. McCon
Botr. Rett BMate Reporter.
The State of Kansas, originally a
part of the Louisiana Purchase, of 37
and 40 of Latitude and 94 and 102 or
longitude, embracing about 78,000
square miles, or with an extent of
400 miles from east to west by 200 In
breadth, is not only central In historic
interest, but also in Its geographic
position among the States of the
Saline county Is situated almost in
the center of Kansas, thus being
geographically one of the most eligibly
located counties in the State.
The county is bounded on the
north by Ottawa county, on the south
by MePherson county, on the east by
Dickinson county, and on the west by
a portion of Ellsworth and Lincoln
counties. The county contains 4G0,
800 acres', or 730 square miles.
The line of the sixth principal meri
dian passes between Dickinson and
Saline counties, so that the eastern
tier of townships in Saline county Is
in range 1 west of that meridian. The
county is nearly square In form, being
twenty-four miles north and south,
and thirty miles east and west.
The surface of the county maybe
classed into, first, level or flat land,
'called bottom land) second, rolling
or undulating, (called second bottom)
and third, high, or upland. Each
class of land containing about one
third of the whole territory. The
level land is confined chiefly to the
creek and river bottoms, which vary
in width from three to eight or ten
miles. These vast stretches of bottom
land, though apparently perfectly
fiat, yet have excellent drainage, and
their variations in grade are so grad
ual as to be almost imperceptible.
The county is In the form of a basin
in the center, and centrally located in
that basin stands the city of Sallna,
which has been from the first the
county seat. Outward from the city
the basin extends on every side,
forming ridges, or divides. The
ridges vary in height, sometimes
forming wave lines, dipping and ris
ing alternately, yet keeping, in gen
eral their curved or circular form.
North of Sallna, the county is much
more broken, and the land of greater
elevation than it is south.
Away to the north, towards the
northern boundary line of the county,
rises up, high above all other sur
rounding objects, the Korth Pole

Kansas, the county Is meetly prairie
with narrow timber belts, along the

The aggregate area of timber land
is about one per cent of the whole.
The varieties of timber are. ash, oak,

' The county is diversified in every
direction with streams of pure water,
the principal ones of whleh are, first,
the Smoky Hill River, entering the
ccunty eighteen miles south of Sallna,
and running north that distance,
thence running due east to the east
line near Solomon City, thence east
ward until as the Kaw River it emp
ties Into the Missouri at Kansas City.
In all seasons of the year the Smoky
has a permanent flow of water.
Next In size is the Saline River,
which enters the county about ten
miles northwest of Sallna, and Hows
in a south easterly direction aud emp
ties into the Smoky Hill 'X miles
east from the county seat T en Mul
berry Creek and its branc! -si, and
Spring Creek and its brancla -. rami
fying the western portion of the
county, flow Into the Saline River.
Then Dry Creek with its several
branches from the southern part of
the county flows into the Mulberry.
Gppeuni Creek and its branches viz :
East Branch, Middle Branch, West
Branch and Hobbs Creek, with two
or three smaller branohes, constitute
the water courses of the eastern part
of the county, all emptying into the
Gypsum and it into the Smoky.
About five miles of the Solomon river
runs across tho northeast corner of
county and forms a junction with the
Smoky at Solomon City. There are
quite a number of excellent springs
in the county, with tnc exception
of Dry Creek the creeks are as perma
nent in their flow oa the rivers. In
every part of the county good water is
abundant ; the streams being so dis
tributed as to be but a few miles apart.
Good well water can be obtained at
depths ranging from twenty to sixty
feet ; the usual depth Is about thirty
CLIMATE AND SOIL.
Saline county Is distinguished for
its pleasant and healthful climate.
True, the thermometer often indicates
In summer, ninety degrees ana up
wards ; but excessive and oppressive
heat is counteracted by various com
pensatory Influences and condition-,
as, the dryness and clearness of the
atmosphere, a constant current of air
being in circulation, and the fact that
no matter how warm the day may
be, the nights nre cool and refreshing
As a general thing, the winters are
seldom severe, no great amount of
snow falling at a time, and rarely to
the depth of six inches, and quickly
melting away. Tnls regioii.caniiot lie
recommended forj?r aa Ugh rid
ing. The winters of course, vary in
severity and in duration ; but gener
ally, they arc mild, and of compara
tively short continuance. ,
The usual causes for malarial dis
eases in a new country, are here al
most unknown, thcro being no pouds
or pools of stagnant water, nor
sloughs nor marshes to contaminate
the air. Except as hronght here by
settlers, bronchial and pulmonary
affections nre unknown, and In many
Instances, persons so afilleted recover

and invigorating elements peculiar to
Saline county lies in the very heart
of the great "Golden Wheat Belt,"
and the capabilities of the soil are
are such as characterize all central
Kansas. It Is composed of a dark
loam, formed of decomposed vege' able
matter and sedimentary deposits,
with a certain amount of alkali and
ashes, resulting from the great fires
that have swept for agea, over tlteee
vast plains. The soil is very rich and
deep, especially in the valleys, where
It oltcn reaches a depth of ten or
twelve feet. All kinds of cereals and
tame grasses may be successfully cul
tivated. There are few section"- of
the country where a le-s exneuditure
ot money and muscle will produce
larger crops. Roots and fruits of all
hinds are of easy production, and can
be made a successful and profitable
Industry. Trees grow rapidly, and
where there are effective precautious
against the ravages of prairi fires,
the belts of native timber a? con
stantly enlarging their area. Trom
what has been said, it will read 'ly be
seen that the county is admi.ubly
adapted for agricultural pursuits, and
for stock raising. There have not yet
been discovered any impoitant min
eral deposits. Coal has not yet been
found in paying quantities. An ex
cellent quality of sand stone is to be
found in almost any part of the eounty-
Fire and pottery clay has been
found, and also extensive beds of
Gypsum, which undoubtedly, in due
time, will engage capital, and be util
ized in the development of the coun
try. In Saline county, near the
mouth of the Solomon river, are very
fine salt wells and works ana mschin
rey have been established for the man
ufacturing of sait of excellent quality,
and In great demand. Within the
last few years arboriculture has re
ceived a good deal of attention, as a
necessity in view of scarcity of timber
and dearth of ceal, and for wind
breaks and shade and ornamental pur
poses. There is scarcely a farm in
the country without trees, and the
city of Sallna Is. distinguished for the
number and beauty of its shade tree
ana ornamental sbruubery.
The first permanent settlement of
Saline county was effected by Col. W.
A. Phillips, then a resident of Law
rence, Kansas, who, in 1857, exam
ined the country up the Big Blue,
Republican, Solomon, Saline and
Smoky Hill rivers, and finally deter
mined to locate on the banks of the
latter river, at that point where it
turns due south, and five miles above
the mouth of the Saline
In February, 1853, he carried this
design into execution in company
with two other Scotchmen, A. M.
Campbell and James Muir. Soon
after, A. C. Splllman arrived and
surveyed and platted the town site.
The Saline river, as also the prox
imity of Salt Springs, suggested the
name oi eaitna lor tne town, anu
afterward, Saline for the county. At
this time where Sallna now stands,
and indeed what is now Saline eoun
ty, was part of the Buffalo range.
As late as I860, two buffaloes were
killed on the town site. For a num
ber of years, buffalo was to the early
settlers the main basis of support.
In February, 1859, Eallae county,
with four other counties west of the
sixth principal meridian, was organ
ized, and its boundaries defined.
The first stock of goods was brought
to Saline county In 1S53.
The first hotel was erected in 1990.
The first gilst mill and sawmill
was built In 1691.
In January, 1831, Kansas was ad
mitted as a State into the Union.
The population of the eounty was
then about ono hundred and twenty
five. In November, 1861, wubekl
the first election under the State con
stitution. In the early part oflS6T the "Kan
sas Pacific Railway" was flnWted to
Ballna and gave a vigorous impulse
and expansion to every kind of im
provement, and led to a large influx
of population. At this time the first
Jail and school boose were erected.
in it3 occurred on tne boHHnoB
and Republican rivers, the most
dreadful Indian outbreak ever known
In, all this region. Men aad children
tortured, murdered and scalped, and
women were forced to submit to a
fate worse than death. Itself. A vol
unteer company from Sallna under
the command of S. J. Crawford, then
Governor of Kansas, going in pursuit,
arrested alt further progress in the
work of slaughter and outrage.
This was substantially the end of
Indian troubles on the border.
The tide of emigration continued Its
western flow, and settlements began
to be made in different parts of the
county. In 16S9 a large colony of two
nunureu or more came from Unlo,

and President of the company, A. M.

around it. The first bouse erect

The first poil ottiee was established
hi December. 1861, aud the first post

county was A. M. Campbell, who is
still the popular Incumbent. The

sermon iu F.nglish by W. Bishop Iu
May 1860. The first church organized
(Presbyterian) was by Mes-rs Rankin
and BMiop, May 12, I860. The first
fchool taught was by Miss Thaeker In
Prior to the advent of the Kansas
Paelfls rallnmd, the town made slow
growth with no assured future.
From that time may be dated a new
departure. About that time ((1866 and
1867) various additions were made to
the town. In 1867 was built the first
school hoiiM-; also a church edifice by
the Methodists. Iu 1S69 the Baptist
church was built and a number of
dwellings anu store. In 1870 Salina
was created a city of the third class,
and quite a number of fine improve
ments wrr' made. Among them a
handsome hurch building by the
Presbyterian During this year the
court hotia.' and jail were built,

Junction City to Salina, and on
Christmas of that year occurred the
the first great fire in the history of tlte
city, destroying several business
houses and contents and entailing a
loss of over IJO.OOO. 1872 Is marked a
the year when Sallna became a cattle
trading point. This, of course, In
creased the business of the eity, but
was a great damage to private and
public morals. Fine improvements
were made during this year, among
them some line business blocks and
the church edifice by the Swede
In 1873 many elegant private resi
dences were built, but the chief im
provement was the erection of a spa

more money was spent In improve

In 1875, the large flouring mill ofC.
R. Underwood fe Co. was erected at a
cost of $40000. During the same year
another disastrous fire visited the
citv, and property to the amount of
$25,000 perished in the flames.
This resulted in the passage of an
ordinance by the city couneil, pre
scribing fire limits and prohibiting

SALINE COUNTY'S ATTRACTIONS.
From A. B. UcCoaacirx Real EttUo Reporter.
In selecting a new home in a
new country there are certain im
portant considerations which are fore
most in the minds of every thought
ful man, by which he measures a
State, county or locality, and deter
mines It to be, or not to be, according
to the standard of excellence which
Among the more important of
these qualities are the following,
named in the order of their impor
tance: Healthfulness of location,
moral and social Influences, climate,
soil ; (both as to fertility and adapta
bility) educational facilities rail roads
First, as to healthfulness of loca-
tlon. Without health, all other ad
vantages, however great, are without
avail; with it, many disadvantages
and hardships may be overcome.
Many things, as altitudes, drainage,
(both surface and sub-soil drainage),
water, sunshine, eta, enter into this
first and mostlmportant topic. Kan
sas, at Kansas city, the lowest point
In the State, has an altitude of 751
feet above sea level. To tho west
ward and notthwestward there Is a
gradual and regularly steepening
ascent in tho surface, until at the
northwest corner of the State tho
land attains an elevation of about
4,000 feet, being a gradual ascent of
about 8 feet to the mile.
Thus It will be seen that Saline
county, whloh is 185 miles west of
Kansas City, has an elevation above
sea level of about 2280 feet. Drainage
Saline county has as perfect natural
drainage well distributed, as can be
found In any count of the Slate. A
glanco at any correct map of the
county (Showing the numerous streams
which abound in it, (described in
another column), their courses and
outlet, considered In connection with
the altitude, and gradual descent to
the east, noted above, will convince
any one that the natural surface drain
age of this county is very complete,
which It is in a marked degree.
Swamps, marshes, ponds of stagnant
water and sluggish streams find no
place here. Persons here from abroad
will notice at once the rapid running
streams; with deep cut banks.
The subsoil drainage In most parts
of the country is equally good. The
subsoil is almost Invariably of an
open, porous or spongy nature, which
readily absorbs surplus moisture, and
draws it beneath the surfaee soli of
cultivated lands. An exception to
this is oicasionly seen, in spots
known as gumbo land, which Is an
exceeding rieh, blaek soil, with less
sand in its composition, and having a
less open subsoil.
The supply of pure, wholesome
water, from streams, and springs, and
wells, is inexhaustible iu all this part
of the State. Never-failing wells are
easily and surely obtained by digging
or drilling from SO to 00 feet deep 30
feet Is perhaps, the average depth.
Water from the wells In all this Val
ley country Us uniformly good, and
generally so on the higher lands. An
exception is sometimes found where
the water has too much alkali in it,
but this is seldom found ia this part
or the State.
The great promoter of health and
life, hoth-of animal and plant, is no
where enjoyed for a greater number
of days in tho year than here. So
much so that the State la known far
and wide as "Sunny Kansas." Dull,
cloudy, chilly days, with heavy at
mosphere and dense fogs, (which lift
any time before noon) are few and far
between in Central Kansas. With
the altitude whleh this point enjoys,
securing light, pure air, with the
finest natural drainage, pure living
water, and bright sunshine, could
this be other than a healthy place to
MORAL AND SOCIAL INFLUENCES.
But few men are so sordid, so blind
to the needs of the higher and better
natures of themselves and their fami
lies that they will willingly shut
themselves out from advantages that
will better their moral and social
condition, for mere purposes of gain
or worldly advantage. The popula
tion of Central Kansas Is largely com
posed of young and middle aged men
and women from the older States,
men and women of intelligence and
energy who have come here because
of the advantages offered, and In
com lug, have brought with them their
refinement, their education, their re
ligion, warm beaits and willing
hands. If any one doubts the moral
and social standing of the people of
Central Kansas, let him learn from
the dozen chureh spires of this little
city pointing heavenward and the
scores ot others In the surrounding
country and towns, the commodious,
even elegant school houses in every
district, the high schools of our towns,
and college of Saliua; the religious
and charitable enterprises in which
our good people are constantly en
gaged, and the industry and thrift
whleh is everywhere apparent. One
of the best evidences of the moral
power of a people Is seen In their
obedience to law, and hearty support
In the execution of law when violated.
In this connection it is worthy of
note that Saline county, of all the
eounties in the State, has distin
guished herself in her efforts to en
force the Prohibitory Llbuor Law of
the State, and has been pre-eminently
successful. While many of her citi
zens are not in favor of the law as it
now stands, yet public sentiment has
been, and Is, In favor of the enforce
ment of that and every other law of
Kansas Is bounded on the north by
the fortieth parallel of latitude, and
Sallna 80 miles t south from the north
line of the State, is in 38 north lati
tude ; this, with its nearness to the
mountain ranges en the west and
consequent altitude, Insures a com
paratively mild, equable temperature,
subject at times to sHdden changes of
short duration, but tempered by the
pure air which prevails throughout
the year. Extremes of heat and cold
are perhaps aa great here, as in the
same latitude farther east, but of short
duration. Hot days in summer are
tempered by refreshing breezes, ever
stirring, and followed; by cool, re
freshing nights. The bright, clear
Kansas skies by day and night, are
the delight of her visitors, and for the
comfort and health of her citizens. It
Is the climate of this country which
makes farming operation, (especially
gathering crops) so easy and safe. In
noBtate east of thk can grain, hay
and all farm crops be harvested with
the ease and speed with whleh all
saeh work Is done here.
The soil of these prairie landj,

crop of this country to understand
the adaptlbility of such soil to all the
grains, fruits and grasses known to
this latitude. Both the surfaee soil
and the subsoil have those qualities
which alike withstand drouth and
excessive moisture. The subsoil, too.
Is a vegetable mold, strongly Impreg
nated with lime and rich in crop
producing qualities. Generally of an
open, spongy nature; It not only af
fords quick drainage to the surface,
but holds the moisture It receives like
a sponge as It were in reserve, to be
drawn up again when needed by the
growing crop, by capillary attraction.
"Education Is the chief factor of
power in a State. It effects and In a
degree moulds all eke.whetber social,
political or Industrial. Prominent
among the Industries which it affects
Is agriculture." The educational sys
tem of this State is too well known to
need comment here. Section second
of the State constitution provides aa
follows: 'The Legislature shall en
courage the promotion of Intellectual,
moral, scientific and agricultural im
provement, by establishing a uniform
system of common schools, and
schools of higher grade, embracing
Normal, Preparatory, Collegiate and
University departments.'" The aet
admitting the State into the Union,
approved January 29, 1S61, provides
that sections sixteen and thirty-alxln
eaeh township, "shall be granted to
said State for the use of schools; "also
that seventy-two sections of land
shall be set apart and reserved for the
use and support of a State Uni
versity." The constitution also pro
vides that 500,000 acres of land grant
ed by Congress and "all estates of
persons dying without heir or will,
add such per cent, as may be granted
by Congress on the sale of lands in
this State, shall be a perpetual school
fund. With her schools amplo en
dowed, liberally managed and highly
appreciated by her people, Kansas
has from the first, taken her stand
among the foremost of her sister
States in the advancement of educa
tion. Railroads arc an important factor
in the development of a new country.
But for the railroads that have
spanned this State from east to west,
and from north to south, Kansas
would to-day be In a primitive condi
tion, with her great resources un
developed. Sallna is situated on the main line
of one of these thoroughfares of
travel and trafic, the Kansas Division
or the Union Pacific railway (formerly
known as the Kansas Pacific), run
ning from east to west: She has a
line running south to MePherson
where it Intersects theA.T. & 8. F.
railroad. The Topeka, Sallna tc.
Western railway, a new line being
built from Topeka westward, is an as
sured fact, the eastern portion of it
already completed and in operation,
and the work of construction west
ward being pushed to completion as
fast as labor and material can be pro
cured. It Is now near the eastern
UneorSallne county. The BurliBg
ton fc Missouri River railroad in
Nebraska Is also building a line south
through northern Kansas to Sallna.
Central Kansas Is finely situated ia
relation to markets for their varied
products, having at her command
not only the established markets of
the east, but of the west and south
west as well, where the ever Increas
ing mining and manufacturing In
dustries, create each succeeding year,
a larger and belter market for our
surplus produce. As an evidence of
this, one of the large Flouring Mills

We do not claim that Kansas is the
only State where the advantages
above stated are found, nor that Ba
llna is the only point in the State
where one should look for a good ell
mate, fine soil, railroad facilities,
markets, etc, and with them enjoy
good health, good Bociety and educa
tional advantages for his children;
but we do say that, looking at this
part of the State, and this growing
city from these various stand points,
we believe that the measure of ear
standard Is here found in greater ful
nes and equality than elsewhere.
