A few da veajp we copied a fault-finding arti
cle, estiikd "Kaiieas Blow?," from the
Ktdalia, Mo., Bazoo. It was from the
eJcemcd ion of its editor and publisher, J.
Wet Goodwin, Esq. TIic article wa char
acterized by disgust rather than malevolence,
;rhd it charged iion the people of .Kansas
undue egotLan, relf-conceit, fclf-complacency
and rclf-admiration. In -hort, the Bazoo
"If there i one thing more than another,
that Kan newspaper arc noted for, it
blowing their own bugle."
"They keep up," says the Bazon, "a con
tinual tout tlirough their cohinine, in regard
to the beauties of Kama.-.
' 'A rtranger to their domain, after n-auing
their paper, would Mippoe tliat Kansas is
the garden of the world, and a perfect para-
disc to live in; that the product of the roil
come in Mich abundance and with no little
labor, that it would lie an excellent asylum
for a lary man."
Now we happen to know, to be personally
ai-uuainicd with, the amiable J. WetJood
win. The firt time wc met him, we
"interviewed" him, as we make it a iiointto
do with all finioiw pvison-, thereby often
collecting valuable information to be after-

Timid, times cnoii"h. fellers talk about

'getting off your bazoo,' and know it mean

Kaii.-as,(!own there in Missouri. We have
a lot of old fogie to deal with, while you
tiller" know how to git up and git. I 'spose
btzoo is slang for baboon, a wind instru
ment. But if it ain't, I don't care, and it
elan't make any difference. Everybody
kiows that I believe in blowing, -and that
that in what bazoo means, and that that i?
what I started the Bav) for. And I have
made it fut, for the papers all over the
country arc advertising mc by making fun
of my Bazoo."
All the Kansas men proc-nt smiled ap-
provingly, and voted Goodwin a brick, ?
good fcllow,aiiil told him he "would do."
And now the poor man crawfishes and
got-. Kiel: on his whole theory of human
nature and the material universe. This is

Of tin-land originally granted to the Han

.icres rciii.i.i un-old. The comparative
c-tatenfcnt of the monthly sales hhows the
steady rise' in tV price of the land under the

coniniis.Moier, an! formerly connected with
the Ko1oi ami AlK-iny Kuilroad. In IfcOI-,
I lie firi-t years of the var, the monthly aver
age of sales was 166 acres, at SS.76 er acre.
Itiriug tin twobubeqiient years, the average
monthly spies were 1370 acres, at S8.."4 per

the monthly average was 6757 acres, at
."51(1.67 ier acre, and in ISC'J the average
price ter:acrc was S12.62. It is thought
that the remaining 130,000 acres will bring
512 ier aijre, and will realize for the com
pany over, Sl,500,000. No better evidence
of the growth of papulation along this line,
and of t lid judicious management of its offi-xtv-,

Very little of the land along the line of
that road Is equal to the land in Kansas. It
is a comparatively thin noil; a flat prairie
wherc-water t-ta lids and the road.-, become iui
payable on account of mud; there arc few
stream, little woodland, and the water i
poor and difficult to obtain. Settlement
obviates some of thoc evils, but old Rcttlerf
have always avoided thcc lamb because tliey
did not approach in value the best lands in
Mfc-oari. And yet we fee what a fortune
the railroad ha made, and what a benefit is
ha., licen to the State. Thoc who own land
along the new lines of road in Kansas can
sec from the above that a railroad quad
ruples their value. The railroad company
makes only a small amount of the profit, for
it owns only a small amount of the land.
Every farmer is enriched by the pew facili
ties thus afforded. Many State? and locali
ties have acted imprudently in voting Iwnds,
but generous aid to lines of railroad is the
" lxv-t possible investment that a new rmuu
nitv can make.
Why can't we have two mails a day to
Leavenworth? If Mr. Lowe will arrange to
liavc it so we shall think he lias done some
good in'liis day. A train leaves here each
morning and returns at night, and luu for
years. There is no excuse for tint having it,
and every reason why we should. T(-pJ.r.

and the trcins might easily accommodate the
public as much by carrying mails a- they do
by carrying passengen-. The mismanage
ment of our mail- would be considered
monstrous in any other State. We want to
bos the jieoplo take hold of this
matter and make it a plank in the
next State Republican platform. Incomjietcnt
mail agents, postmasters and route agents,
and the negligence of railroad companies arc
all endured with a patience and silence that i
simply amazing. If we wish to communi
cate speedily and surely with any important
town in Kansas it is invariably done by tele
graph. Nobody thinks that the mails are
trustworthy for any Mich buaintss. And the
reason is that political shysters operate the

From A. J. Selleg, of Hiawatha, we learn
that the grading on the St. Joseph fc Denver
road has been nearly completed to within
ten miles f 3Iarysville. The iron and ties
arc on the' ground for the extension of the
road as far a Seneca. Some delay has been
Vaii-ed by bridges, but the road is expected
to be in operation to Seneca, by the fifteenth
ri August, and, early in the fall, to Marys
ville. The Engineer; arc now out beyond
MarysviliA?, inNebraska, and surveying the
totrtc to Fort Kearney. The road has cer
tainly made fine progrc this year, and it is

(Kium Ihc Chicago Tri! in nc
The final passage or the banking bill by
both Houses of Congress i. the first of a
.-eriu; of financial measures of the greatest
importance to the business interests of the
eountrv. The influence of this bill will be
immediately felt throughout all financial cir
cles in the Union. That the reader may
elearly understand it, we shall state its main
In the first place, it authorize an addition
to the circulation of the Niitionil Bank. of
?54,000,000. The new banks arc to lie
based on the same kind and roprtioiiatc
amount of bonds as the existing bank?.
That i.', 00 jht cent, of Mutilation will lie
issued on 5-20 or 10-10 Imnds; Imt nl mon
than half a million of notes will be allowed
to anv one bank.
2. As fa-t'as new'lianks are organized, the
Secretary of the Treasury is required to rail
in and retire the ier cent, certificates which
arc now held ' mc oaiiKs as part oi tneir
rervc funds for the redenijitiou of Ihcir
notes. There arc about $45,000,000 ,f theve
ecrtifiratcs .Hitstinduig, n which the govern
ment is pa vine bl,!siO,000 of annual interest
to the Kinks. They will hereafter lose so
much of their jirofits, and lie obligvl to rc
jilace these certificates with an cijii.il amount
:t. The .j 1,000,000 of new circulation
will Ije issued to Iwnks in States lh.it have
less than llieir due quota of Kink circulation
under the National Banking act. It is to lie
divided among such Stales in projortion to
their jKijnil.it ion by the census of 1870.
When all of the $54,000,000 is thus dis
tributed lo the State that are short of tlieir
equitable proportion, then it is made the
duty of the Comptroller of the Currency to
withdraw $25,000,000 of circulation Irom
the KmkH in these State that arc .till in ex
cess of their equitable, share of the curmicy,
and distribute a like amount to the banks in
those States that are still wanting in theil
The distribution of the $51,000,000 apd
the le-distriljution of the $25,000,000 afore
said will give the Wert and South $7!,00O,
Hr) more bank circulation than liny, now
Ios.scsv;, which willjiist aliout double the
aiiiiiunt tho-c States have at Ibis time.
I. The bill also provides that the stock
holders of any National Bank located in a
State thai has more than its due proKrtion
of Kink circulation, may relocate itin any
State that has lew. This provision will lend
still further lo equalize the distribution of
the currency among the Mates.

allalrs iili thUr rb-ertation is deplttrabfe:
These official letlbrs state the ta-e is follows:
the large body of white settlers ho have
taken forcible iiossessioh of the latkl bf the
Indians, WHhoilt a shadow ot legal right,
cohtinlie to hold twscssion of them and in
clude them iti their claims. On the eastern
1-irt of the Osage reservation those squatters
have organized three counties, appointed
jitd-cs aM t'ther cojlr'tjr onlterttj sflrbtl
aHdforhfallV alloltbd the lihicr part of the
lands tith all the .issitraHcc of horfetpCvi'le:
They liave stolen withirf the last three years
several thousand of the Indian ponies. In
1SG3. ihbOsacfcs wrre lrsiiaded to allow the
Ooverrinietit tii displise iif a VtH tif their
kinds, twenty miles wide, aloHg the whole"
Hut hern Imnler of Kansts. They were told
that in two years milili of it would
le isaitl fdh ami thev would
have some- mraifc of s(ijort. Thev con--tilttsl.
The land wfcre stii veved ami thhilr.--
,tnds of settlers entered Ilpon,totk ife-tssic.n
and .oe now ort'upviiig thenl; arid vei,
though it is five years ago, thfe Indians hart
not received one tent from the saler of these
lands. The reason given for this is that at
the end of three years the settlers did not
find it tonvrnient to pay. So they got their
Representative in Congress fo introduce a
bill, which was ja-til, granting them an ex
tension of two years more in which to j-iy
for the lands." The Indian were not con
sulted and to this day do not understand it,
and luoe no faith ill llie gocrnment ever
dealing fairly with a them. The effect of
these outrages has leeii to drive the Osage
into the Cheiokee country, where a jx.rtion
of them arc huddled along the bank of the
Little Cottsa river, or m outlaws to wander
on the Southern plains. Nothing whatever
ha.- been done by the government in the way
of let-ding thtm.aiidstorcsofthtni h.tvedietl
Jhis spring from the want of medical treat
ment. The prc-enf agent is a Quaker, and
lias done what he could without uiean
to ameliorate their condition. In IWvj
they sold to the government a strip ot land
from which the two counties of Neosho and
L-iliettc have been cuii.trmttd, from which,
and othersources, they reteive about five
dollars ;f expitii anniuilly. Thuis llie only

or iij.lioM the honor of our country along

anxious i.iturn their attention to acricullurc,
and if thev had Imt the lea-.t sliow of justice,
would soon have cabins eiccteil, fields lencccl
and ci j'l.inti.l. is il to W wondered at
that we hear of attacks on trains at

its soundness in his "Patriarcha," published
