WICHITA, SEDGWICK COUNTY, KANSAS, THURSDAY, JANUARY
Occidental.
Editor Eagi.i:: I liassiujr down
Main 6trcet a few evenings ago I drop
ped into a room occupied by a young
man, one of Wicltitn'e best. He was
and appealed to me to be laboring un
der a hallucination. At any rate, I
never saw any one in such a predica
ment, not even excepting liaving"fits."
From the -cattered leave around him,
it was plain to be seen that he had been
devouring Uyron,audo titer miscellane
ous works on poetry, to afeaiful ex
tent. The only sensible word that 1
could understand were, "the Occident
al grand opening ball was the best of
the season, and the was the prettiest
little girl in the land." I saw on the
table the following lines, which he
had just penned:
Oh I with what ililigut,
On the srand opctiins night.
And out urtlie eight of my sire,
1 watched uiy chance
In this festive dance,
Of choosing a girl to admire.
The music was good,
Aud well understood
J!j all that mov ing train ;
ly heart bvat light,
On that inv stic night,
l'or I beheld my nvrain,
'ov 1 can lioakt iu glory,
And could lengthen my story,
To prove that lo heart taure
On thatjojful night,
In the uazling light,
"Witli mine was lit to compare.
ri.ii:o.
It is to be hoped that the jouth will
get through all right. A trip to the
country would, no doubt, be beneficial.

From Cash Creek, I. T.
Pout Sii-l, I. T., Jan. 5th, 1874.
:ditoii Kaoi.i:: Perhaps it may not
come amiss if a few notes should come
from this immediate locality, for it is
not frequent that any intelligence is
published from this part of the Terri
tory. The Indian affairs are rather
mixed and unsettled. The whites are
in the minority in numbers, without
any recognized rights ; therefore, Mr.
Editor, you prccieve our influence is
cs-tremcly limited, and if we should
attempt lo make any suggestions for
the improvement and the furtherance
of this Indian Quaker success, it would
b" intermeddling with the friend Locs.
Theie are, from observation, too many
interested individuals already mixed.
The Kiowas and Apaches are absent,
and for several issue days they have
not been pre.-ent. The latter Indians
ire encamped with the Cheycnucs, m
the vicinity of the antelope lulls, borne
of the friendly mis say that a portion
of them are raiding in Texas, killing
and scalping, as tt-ual. When any ot
these wild Indians make a movement
along the Texas lrontier, wc are almost
immediately informed of it on their
return. They frequently boast of their
exploits aud adventures. These reds
are educated to certain facts appurtain
ing to' the Quaker rule. They are sat
islied iu regard to the military order,
etc. They also know that the agents
under the present so-called policy Mill
not ak any assistance to biin-,' them
under the soldiers' bayonet. The In
dians have got more natural intelli
gence and common sense than inexpe
rienced white men would suppose.
I! jwever they donot comprehend why
he commissioners make such positive
threats against them, and lollow
v." this the more inferior ollicer.- arc

Mr. Hoar's Laad Bill, Col. Phillip's
Speech Aeainst It.
The position of Col. W. A. Phillips
upon the committee of public lauds is
a fortunate one, not only for Kansas,
but for the entire west. The disposi
tion of irtanv eastern members is to get
rid of our public lauds in some hape
or other. Last session the bounty laud
fraud came near going through con
gress. This session a bill has been in
troduced by Mr. Hoar, of Massachu
setts, devoting the proceeds of the
public lands in perpetuity to antduea
tional fund to be divided up among the
states in proportion to their illiterate
population a rule which would give
bv far the greate-t part to the southern
states. A Col. Phillips says, "we
have the picture of pedagogue with a
birch in one hand and a barefooted ne
gro boy in the other the last of all the
land grabbers."
Tin's measure came up in the house
on the 14th inst., and Mr. Phillips, by
the f.ivor of a brother member, obtain
ed the floor for ten minutes to speak
a,faiiist it. After discussion the bill
was postponed until next March, and
it is thought will not again be heard
from this session. The following arc
Col. Phillips's remarks upon the ques
tion as we find them reported in the
congressional record :
The house resumed the considera
tion of the educational fund bill.
Mr. Phillip. Mr. Speaker, I am sor
rv the gentleman has moved to post
pone action on this bill. It necessarily
conflicts with measure of land reform
that ill come before the house, aud
that are before the committee, and
1 should prefer to dispise of it at
once.
It is with profound regret that 1 rise
m .iimn-e a. measure which the learned
and accomplished gentleman from Mas
sachusetts, who has charge of the bill,
has picpaied with -uch labor and de-
lClKICU Willi SUCH uiuijueiiti:. "is ",
able and consitaiit career as a champi
on of philanthropic and progressive-'
meastiiesj enable him to bring to the
bill now before the house a great
weight, and one to which it would not
otherwise be entitled. I think I can
comprehend the spirit which animates
him and other gentlemen with him;
and its honesty aud sincerity I admire
and respect.
lint, sir, it has been the iniMortuuc
of a small portion of the legislation of
the past few ear.- that its enthusiastic
defenders mistook theories for states
manship and earnest convictions for
fact. Looking at the grand work
w hich has regenerated American poli
tics, lircd with a laudable ambition to
contribute something new to the work,
inspired with a generous emotion, each
new proposition was thrust on the
couiitv bv it advocates as if it was a
part o't the great republican work that
has dignified the history of the coun
try for the past twelve years. And
thus it has happened that many shoot-in"-
and falling stars have crept into
that grand constellation and many
outlandish barnacles been fastened to
the bottom of the grand old ship.
nd vet I have occasion toinaukine
, ,r(!:illcmeI1 from Massachusetts that he
,.IS not attempted to linil support lor
tiiW n n ii.ntv measure or to tiragoon
this house, llis candor and sense of
justice led us naturally to expect this.
It U one step in advance of the acci
dents which have environed us, and
the course he has pursued I honor, be
cause he has n-ed no argument or ef
fort save those which in his judgment
might commend it t tlc discretion of
thi" house.
In the brief remarks I propose to
make I shall confine myself chiefly to
that phase of thq queetion which decp
Iv and vitally allecto thq constituency I
have the honor to represent on thi
floor. The measure proposes in sub
stance forever to dcotc,tho prpceeds
of 'o rrnmeiit lauds for the purpose of
education through the most ignorant
portions of the I'liUed Status. -Now,
ir, I ield to no man on this llooriu
,i...-.iii.ni to tlincaue which urge's in
tellectual and moral culture and the
higher development of our people. I
profoundly sympathise with the ig
norant and "darkened poitious. al-.
tiuiiKrh I do not iire-uine to say which
thev are; nor does the gentleman's
bill". Neither docs it contain the re
quisite machinery to determine a ques
tion so delicate. We have "Old Prob
abilities" to measure the prospects of
the weather; we have gas meters to
measure the quantity of gas which
flows in a certain direction. Provi
dence has set the noseover the mouth,
as a sort of alcoholinieter, to determine
and expose the amount of strong fluid
that pass beneath it: but what board
of education or public works will have
the ability to ascertain aud the hardi
ness to publish the communities most
entitled to the mouevs flowing tiom
the provisions of this bill.
The gentlemen defending the meas
ure have claimed that this bill inter
feics with nothing. That it leaves the
pre-emption and homestend laws in-
tact; mat u iniencics wmi uu i-
. t.;siati0, ; that it only takes moneys
f,0inerh derived from public lands and
Mimlii's tlicm as a school tuud in
the
wav specified. In taking this position
I believe the gentlemen are honest ; in
cxpres-ing it 1 am sure they are can
did; I feci equally sure that they arc
mistaken.

the Blue Hidge and bought or pretend
ed to buy from some Indians a large
portion of what is now Kentucky. The
colonial legislature of Virginia took
cognizance of the fact. They declared
that the sale was good so far as the In
dians were concerned, but bad so far
as Henderson was concerned; and then,
having allotted Henderson a small por
tion of his purchase on the ground
that what they gave him was worth
more than he gave for the whole, pro
ceeded to dispose of the remainder ly
an act unparalleled even in legislative
impudence.
From these and other modes of
granting aud selling, great aud small,
wc come down step by step to the pre
emption of ISil anil the homestead
law. Then we had gigantic grants to
railroads. They, with all their fault,
had some advantages. The theory
was that the increased value of the
soil should be used in its development.
The internal improvements of Illinois
developed that state. When railroads
arebuilt through countries where there
are no navigable streams they render
its occuppancy possible. The great
blunder was the government parted
with its title to these land, and left
corporations to speculate in them and
make the hardest times with the ket
tle r.
Now, what gives value to these
lands V Go out on the plains, beyond
the present settlements, and it is worth
nothing. To-ilay, iu the market of the
world, it is not worth the parchment
on which a deed of conveying would
be written. It derives almost its sole
value from the labor of the pioneer,
and this has been taxed just long
enough.
ldo not doubt but the gentlemen
thinks so, but he proposes taxing the
settlers on their lands nevertheless.
The present popular movement
against laud monopoly is a just one.
The people have groaned ag.iinst the
public domain going into the nanus oi
great corporations. They have pro
tested against all land speculation. In
the present teuipor of the public mind
these cannot be brought here. Hut we
have the picture oi a pedagogue, with
a birch iu one hand and a barefooted
negro boy iu the other the last of all
the land grabbers.
1 think it high time the land ques
tion be considered apart from all such
propositions. It is the foundation
stone of American politics. The time
is surely coming when the hardy
pioneers "will no longer be asked to de
velop the country and maintain out
side benevolence. I would a thousand
timci rather vote money from the
treasury. The last thing congress
should " part with is the public do
main. I say there is a system of reform de
manded, which shall sanctify to those
people the right of occupancy, the right
of improvement with respect to the
lands to which the give value b their
toil. I am sure that in asking to tax
those lands for such a purpose as this
bill contemplates the tormers of this
bill have fallen into an error.
Mr. (i. !. Hoar Let me ask the gen
tleman from Kansas (Mr. Phillips)
whether he finds in this bill anything
proposing to tax those lands in an
form or manner V
Mr. Phillips The bill propo-es in ef
fect a tax upon the energy of the 'et
tlers. The only value that those lauds
hae is what the settlers give them;
and the gentleman proposes to ta
them for the support of schools in the
southern states.
Mr. U. l'r Hoar I beg to inform the
gentleman that there is no such propo
sition pending befotc the house.

The Spring Cattle Trado.
Letter received by Jas. McCulIoch
from Jas. Brydeu in Texas :
Wc have several times alluded to the
Texas and Kansas cattle, trade, and
promised our readers all the informa
tion to be obtained iu reference to this
important irattie. The season for
driving is rapidly approaching, and al
ready several thousand head have been
safely enclosed iu pastures, preparato
ry to" an early start in the spring, while
othcr are gathering cattle from the
outermost ramie and niacins them
within striking distance, cither for
driving or selling purposes.
List season was one long to be re
membered b our cattle men as being
most disastrous to their welfare, and
generally unfavorable to their inter
ests. Those who came late upon the
scene experienced a stringent money
market, and those who were so unfor
tunate as to have remained with stock
on hand until the 15th day of jseptcui
bcr felt the terrible effects of the finan
cial crisis, and many were swallowed
up by the whirlpool bf ruin. Numbers
of those whose cattle were in tine con
dition failed to find purchasers, while
others sold only to find themselves sub
sequently deprived of both cattle and
monev. while a third class were com
pelled .o drive their stock to winter
quarters. Through all of these tr ing
times, be it ever tw the credit of our
cattle men, thoe who were not utter
ly ruined, stood the shock noliiy, ciim
Iy, sympathizing with and assisting
each other as far as within their power.
From evidence before us, we are in
duced to believe that the drive, al
though largc.will be considerably less
titan that of former years. Severe
drouths and an almost constant drain
iition our cattle range bv the numerous
packeries in this and in the vicinity of
Uockport have greatly diminished the
number of cattle on our prairies, the
packeries alone consuming not less
than one hundred thousand nuiiuall.
Our stock raisers, too, are gradually
becoming awakened to the rapid de
crease in the number of cattle upon
our prairies compared with former
