O" We ulways gave the Conservative consul
crable credit for "blowing" sometimes ima
gined " Web." the possessor of nn exceedingly
enthusiastic temperament. But the invitation
card to the Printer's Ball and Banquet, which
we have recened, dispelled such notions. It is
the neatest specimen of fine printing we have
ecn in the West. It was executed in the Con
eertatirc office by Whi.is Entity, whose artistic
f till is far above the ordinary.
,ansas pays, annually, to other States for the
nrrfclc of Salt alone about One Hundred Thou
sand Dollars, while the same amount could be
made within fifty miles of this place for one-sixth
of the Bum. This mono- is taken from the peo
p!e and from the State for nn aitiele that ought
to be made here. It is a casli drain on the Suite
of a sum that, if one-half of it was judiciously
expended in Salt Works on the strong Salt
Springs of Salt frock, or the Saline, we should
be ably to supply low a, Missouri, Illinois, and
half the valley Slates, with all their Salt, and
thus bring into the State, to be scattered among
its people, millions of dollars. Why send our
money out of the State for an article abundant
within its limits ? Kansas can manufacture for
the Mississippi Valley, and thus cause other
States to build us up.
But to do it, our salines must be developed.
They should receive the prompt encouragement
of legislative action. Let the State pay a small
eum, siy two mills per pound, to the manufac
turer, and let the State salines be free to manu
facturing companies lor a term of years. Better,
far better, pay one of our citizens two mills per
pound to make Salt than to pay the people of
other States ten. We trust this question will
receive the attention of the Legislature nt once.

ID This number of the Uxiox closes our first
year's experience in the journalistic field, other
than as "jours." It has lost considerable of its
romance. We find ourselves nothing more
or less than the pack-horses of this whole region
responsible for all that has been said, and nil
tatias been left unsaid ; alternately, the recip
ienuTof favors and kicks kicks generally. We
have done all manner of work ground out
" able " editorals and chopped wood ; run
churches, whiskey-shops, and temperance soci
eties. and trafficked in buffalo tallow. The end
of the year finds us with " nary red" but not
discouraged ; -we are full of determination to run
the machine according to correct principles or
oust me traces trying. We flatter ourselves
that we are sufficiently "fast" to keepp the
dignity of the institution can run her to any
guage. Have escaped hosts of "thrashings,"
"raw-hidings," and such like. Still further
flatter ourselves that we are at bitter war with
very rebel sympathizer, horse-thief, rum-seller
and other pests of society, -within our bounds
glory in the supped term of reproach, "Police
Gazette." Shall continue to run her upon tho
i,ame " high prtssure " principles, improved as
experience suggests, and our new fonts of type,
a bill of which we received the other day, will
permit Delinquents could aid us surprisingly
in this matter.
