Toi'KKA, .January 2fllh, 1871.
Di:au Kaolk: The Rotation of I Ii
senatorial problem t-cem as dillicult
as it did three months ago, but tlis tan
gle must commence to uurarr! to-morrow
noon. Tlifre has been western,
southern, independent, opposition and
republican caucuses, but without any
satisfactory results to the participant
or any one else. There does not ap
pear to be fifty mcuibeiK who have n
yet decided for whom the will cast
their ballots. The representatives
from southwestern Kansas say they
will stand together for their section,
P. II. Plumb and C. (J. Hutchinson arc
the candidates; southeastern Kansas
has llcynolds, York, Carpenter and a
dozen other. Western Kansas brings
forward Phillips and Harvey. Leaven
worth has split upon Tom ()-born.
Douglas county is divided between
Clarke, Robinson, l.os, and Habcock.
At this time no one can predict the re
sult. I believe no combinations can be
affected until after the first ballot. If
a result Is reached before Wednesday
night I shall telegraph you.
In pursuance of a 6iiggeBtiou from
Mr. P. A. Sowers, and one or two other
gcntlcmcH, I introduced n resolution j
calling for a bill or an opinion looking
to the relief of such parties as have
purchased school lands but who Iiiiyo
failed to pay the interest upon the I
same. The committee on education
to whom the matter was referred, rc-1
ported this morning that the attorney
general gives it as hi- opinion that
such purchasers can only loose their
claims by foreclosure following the
judgment of a suit brought by thestate,
and that when the interest is not paid
the holder of the land will simply be
compelled to compound or pay interest
on the interest due.
From pre'ciit indications the joint
resolution submitting the question of
a constitutional convention to the peo
ple will be defeated. It take a two
third vote and we will lack one- vote in
the senate unle-s tome member is con
verted. I'pon the ground that we have
outgrown our fundamental law, that
we have too many officers and loo many
legislatures as also that no mistake can
ever be possibly made in referring mat
ters direct to the people. I sustained
and voted for the resolutions.
A memorial asking Congress to set
up a territorial government in the In
fliain territory was killed in the senate
the past week. The senate has passed
all the bills necessary to repeal the ob
iinxiou measures complained bv the
people. Follow. tii: the repeal of the
mortage law, I introduced a resolution
calling upon the judiciary committee
for a bill to nsess and collect taxes due
on mortgages that were not lited in
187.1, which pissed. Several railroad
laws ha'e been introduced, some of
them wi'C and others t xticme in their
provisions. One for equalizing rates
pro rata with distance was before the
railroad commit lee Saturday. The bill,
if it becomes a law, will be a good thing
for those living at intermediate points
on any given line of a road, but would
work a hardship for ns who live in the
extreme west. It woul 1 bring up the
freights on stone, lumber and coal one
way and grain and stock the other.
T'niess it is modified I shall fight it.
The Arkansas valley pays too high
now for through freights and we do
not want them increased twenty-live
or fifty per cent.
Many wise reformatory measures
have been introduced in both branches
of the legislation, and probably a great
majority of the evils that have grown
into the general legislation of the state
will be eradicated this session. All
laws nermittiiiL' tho voting of munici
pal bonds in aid of railroads, factories .
and other internal imvroqcnts, except )
bridges, will be repealed in my opin
ion. A bill of that description has
been passed favorably upon by the
committee of the whole senate. Not
withstanding the clause in the consti
tution which forbids a state debt of
over one million dollars, our aggrega
ted bonded indebtedness as a common
wealth is over twenty millions of dol
lars, or nn indebtedness of about $200
to every household in the state. Manv
counties in the state are so burdened
with bonded indebtedness as to r,i
ouslv depreciate the value of all real
property within such counties. Is it
then not about time that tome action
was being taken? I attribute much
of this wholesome sentiment now
found within our legislative halls to
the direct influence of the "fanners
movement." This movement is pene
trating every department of our gov
ernment, under its influence fictitious
values are finding their level ; stock
gamblers and swindlers are being tab
booed : corrupt rings that have ruled
by the power of wild speculation are
being broken; the credit system is
writhing in death ; and public ser
vants arc being.hcld to a strict account
for their votes and actions. I think we
may safely look forward to a new crea
for better, purer times.
Tho Osage laud proposition will
pass the house to-day, when I will pro
cure the printing of -100 copies so that
a copy may be laid upon each congress
man's desk, which taken in connection
with a petition nearly one hundred
feet long will have the effect. I hope to
bring about some favorable action.

would be the entering wedge for acon

An) thing that might be said of the
wheat crop at any point on the line
fioui Wichita to Fort Wayne could be
said of the crop at any other point.
We saw a great deal of fall wheat, and
not one field that was not in excellent
condition. Should the latter part of
the season be as f.ivorable as the early
part, the jicltl of wheat through Cen
tral Missouri, Illinois, Indiana and
Ohio will be unusually large.
In many parts of Illinois, scattered
about over well-kept farms, we saw
many of the grat sources of Wichita's
business life and energy the long
horned Texaus, looking ns much out
of place among their short, sleek Dur
ham cousins as some unwashed Kaw
would be in the parlors and society of
some of Caucasia's tipper teudoni.
A t .Jacksonville e stepped upon the
platform to ,et a better view of the
place, and somehow "got left ;" so we
concluded to do the city, and know
something about it. It is remarkable,
among other things, as having been
the home of those two intellectual
giants, "Dick" Yates and Stephen A.
Douglas, and at the time of my sight
seeing the muddiest hole, and, in that
respect, the most disagieeable place in
Chiistcudom. Just at this time one
day of Wichita's good roads would
transport Jacksonville citizens to
Elysium. During the muddy season
(six mouths, unless frozen.) these roads
arc bottomless, "so they say." We
stayed in Jacksonville one day, and
then sought the depot through a sea of
mud and slush. Jacksonville may be
a delightful place in the summer, but
in the winter it is strange with how
few regrets a stranger can leave its
muddy streets and almost impassible
pavameuts to loose himself in silent
reverie in the berth of some sleeping
coach, or entertain himself by forcing
into conversation some one of the vast
mixed multitude who, on missions of
pleasure, health and business, go
"riding on the rail."
After leaving Jacksonville we go
dishing away through one of the most
fertile and prosperous portions of Illi
nois, and, excepting the Arkansas val
ley, the finest country between Colo
rado aud the Atlantic.
One of the first things we saw after
passing the state line between Illinois
and Indiana was a large pile of hoop
poles nt a village. Tho village was
small and insignificant in itself, and
might have been in any other state as
well a in Indiana in fact, might have
been out of any state altogether, but
that huge pile of hoop poles told just
as plainly as the voice of the conduc
tor which had announced "state line,"
as we passed into the land of Hoosicr
dom, just whero wo were, for it may
be stated as a matter of fact that the
hoop pole is just as certainly indicative
of the bark woods autocrat ot "Inji
any," as "hog aud hominy" is of ihc
squallid inhabitants of the Missouri
bottom. Itat this is said without dis
paragement to either, for hoop poles
must be cut, and hog and hominy must
be eaten, and we suppose there will be
somebody to discharge these duties as
long as there is money in the one and
liealth and happiness in the other.
We had been desiring to sec a live
Iloosier at his home, and as the sure
indication of his presence loomed up
before us, our curiosity was gratified,
and making a resting ptaccof our seat,
improvising our overcoat into a pillow
anil throwing our lap robe over us. wc
passed out into the land of dreams,
until, two hours afterwards, a voice
calling "Fort Wayne change cars for
Pittsburg," aroused us from slumber,
aud as the cold winter wind came rush
ing in upon us wc gathered our wrap
pings more closely and passed out into
the falling snow. This is the first place
wc have seen anv snow of consequence
and as we understand it is much heav
ier east, and as another one. hundred
mile ride will bring us home, we ex
pect before the close of another day to
enjoy our first sloigh ride in four years
and speed away over the beautiful

tion to this assistance, and would to
day probably not have been construct
cd'a single mile, only that this county
aid gave the enterprise a basis to begin
As before stated, we have success
fully completed our line, hut our busi
ness is, of course, small for so long a
line of railway, and the receipts from
land sales arc also small, for we are
giving aid and encouragement to actu
al fcettlers, and making few sales to
speculators. Hence, even with the
most economical management, and
with the most earnest efforts to dis
pose of our lands to settlers, we find
ourselves at the close of 1673, with an
lui-ufiicicnt amount of net receipts to
pay the interest upon ourdebl,byover
two hundred thousand dollar. Rut
nij self and associates, who have in
vested our means m this railway, had
anticipated that during its construc
tion and for a few years afterwards we
should be obligcdto conduct the af
fairs of the road at a loss, still with
full confidence in the resources of the
state, aud in the development of the
country through which the road runs,
wc have promptly met these losses for
tlie last three jears. and have looked
to the future for a fair return from the
enterprise which wc have opened.
Our business is continually increasing,
our land sales arc coiisantly growing,
the amount due to us on lands already
sold are yearly becoming larger, and
we have no fear for the future, if we
are only treated fairlv and justlv by
the state and municipal authorities.
We arc heartily glad to see every prop
er improvement made in the counties
through which our road runs, and we
will cheerfully pay our proportion of
every just tax" levied for school houses,
court houses, bridges, etc. ; but an ex
amination of the assessments and lev
ies undo in many of our counties for
the year 1873, will prove to any fair
minded person, that there is evidently
a desire to make us the victims of ii
system of confiscation. The most open
irregularities and frauds have been
committed, and allowed to pass by un
noticed and unpunished, merely be
cause the railroad company arc either
tho chief or only victims. "The county
of lleno, with an organization scarce
Iv one and a half rears old, has made a
tax levy for 1873 of nearly $15,000, :!nd
the proportion of this amount assessed
against the A., T. & S. F. . R. Co's
property is $11,418.49. Tho county of
l5arton,"with a more recent settlement
and organization, has made a tax levy
for 1873of over $27,000, exclusive of the
town property of (Jrcat bend, and the
proportion of this amount assessed
against the A., T. & S. F. It. It. Co's
property is $25,219.50. Other western
counties figure in nearly the same pro
portion. lJut the worst feature of the whole
matter is that while we have been call
ed upon to meet the tax for 1873 of
over $250,000 levied upon a property
that is already being operated at a
heavy loss each year wc have not
even'thc satisfaction of knowing that
the money has been honestly expended
upon improvements which will benefit
the counties. On the contrary we have
positive proof that large portions of
the proceeds from the sale of bond,
and large proceeds from the tax levies,
have found their way to the pockets of
officials, and that a regular system of
"dividing the spoils" has been the rule
in many counties; indeed the terrible
systemof extravagance and fraud that
has been inaugurated, is largely re
tarding the sale of our railroad lauds
to actual settlers.
Under these circumstance, what can
wo do, as stockholders in the road,
otherwise than strenuously oppose the
collection of these taxes, and thus pro
tect our own property, as well as that
of sixteen hundred persons! who have
purchased land from us? We shall,
on the 10th of January, or as soon
thereafter as possible, meet all the tax
es where the levies have been fair and
legal, aud we shall look to the courts
for relief from the wrongs which have
been committed in others. If the
courts do not relieve us, wc shall per
mit our unsold lands to revert tempo
rarily to the counties, and thus put a
temporary stop to the systems of fraud,
for an examination of our present cir
cumstances will show concliiMvelv,
our inability to pay the demands made
This is briefly the true condition of
affairs, and if our people will only lay
prejudice aside, they will sec that their
true interests arc our interests, and
that this railroad company is the best
friend they have, juts as'thev should
b the best friend wc have. Wc wish
and intend to deal fairly and justly
with all. Efforts have been made, and
successfully loo, to prejudice thciuinds
of the people living in our counties, be
cause we have opposed the issuance of
bonds voted to sundry railroad lines,
which were to be built in Pice, Mc
pherson, Marion and other counties.
The fact is, that wc were protecting
vour interests as well as ours. In
Mai ion county our action was too late
and what has" been the consequence?
A hundred thousand dollars of bonds
have been isucd to a bogus railroad
co., who, after expending less than
$25,000 upon the road-bed, have entire
ly ceased work. The only legacy they
liavc left behind them is "the principal
and interest upon $100,000. to be paid
bv you and by us. In Pice and Mc
P'herson counties we were fortunately
just in time to precnt the perpetra
tion of similar frauds by another bogus
railroad, although the county of Saline,
which lies north of us, has suffered to
the exteut of $50,000, issued to this
same road (the S., A. &. 11. It. P.), for
which thev have received no benefit
excent about $10,000 of earthwork.

The town of El I'aso U located on the cut. bank
of the srrat Arkansas KiTcr. in the fontheutern

industrious and practical farmers. They are at
work-in earnest, opentngnp their farms anil mak
ing tbemselrea good, comfortable and permanent
There is a rock bottom in the rirer, extending
about three quarters of a mile np and down the
stream. On the east bank the rocks are about fif
teen feet abote low water mark, and on the west
bank about twelve feet below the surface of the
A good substantial bridge, two hundred and
seventy-five feet long, spans the Arkansas Kiver
at this place, thereby giving the farmers on the
west side oi Ibe river access to the town at any
stage ot water and at all seasons of the j ear. The
bridge rests on stone abutments on either bank,
and on two iron piers, which stand firmly on the
bed rock in the river It is naturally the best
place on the river I n this state for a railroad bridge
across ihe great Arkansas River.
Two railroads have already been survejed to
this place; one from the northeast, via Eureka and
Augusta, crossing the river at this rock bottom.
the other from the city of Wichita to Arkansas
City, which proved to be almost an air line, and a
Tery fUvorablc route. No doubt, both roads will
soon be completed.
There is not the least doubt thtt here is the bes"
water privilege in the state of Kansas. The gTeat
Arkansas River, its source in the Rocky Moun
tains, is supplied with water in summer by the
melting snows in the mountain., by rain and it
many tributaries in winter The water is always
highest from spring until fall, yet it has never
been known to overflovr its banks at this -i'rt
There is an abundance of water during the v .olc
j ear to run all the machinery that can be placed
oa the bank for several miles below.
FEAS1RILITY OF A DAM.
The feasibility of a dam across the river is not
questioned, a solid rock bottom all the way across
to build upon, the width only two hundred and
seventy-live fet from shore to shore, a high bank
of clay and rock on the east side, and on the west
side a bed of tough clay covered with sand. -,-tending
for some ways up the river above the '.ick
bottom. This water privilege must and will thurt
ly be imjM-oved. El Pao will be a manufacturing
town. The experiments last esason in raiirg
cotton demonstrated that this soil and climate rt
adopted to cotton growing; then why not manu
facture it here where the corner stone and found
ation have been naturally laid.
The town is new, the buildings are substantial,
erected for permanent business houses and homes
It contains one dry goods store, a drug store, two
grocery stores, one Hotel, a wjgon maker aud
blaek-mith shop, one shoe store, a meat market,
two feed stables, a good school house, and a num
There is good school from seven to nine months
each year. A Sabbath-school has been orgujind
and Is now in a flourishing condition.
Two church organizations have been effected,
viz. the Methodist and United Presbyterian, each
having regular services.
JUNCTION" OF STAGES.
Ity recent arrangements the Town Company has
sucecded in obtaining at this place a Junction of
the stages of the Southwestern Stage Comivany. A
daily stage runs from here to Wichita, a trl-weekly
from here to Fort Sill, a tri-weekly to Welling
ton, a dally, via Winlleld, to Arkansas City.
The timber in this vicinity consists of cotton
wood, oak, ash, hickory, walnut, mulberry en'
elm. Cord wood is delivered in town at four dol
lars per cord.
There is here a good oiieniug for business men
of all kinds, mechanics of all trades ; honest. In
dubious, temperate and energetic men are re
The policy of the town company heretofore has
been to donate lots to those who built homes on
them. Now, for Ihe llrst time, they advertise lots
Persons seeking homes or wishing to engage in
biieinc-s of any kind, or desiriug tojlocate in a
healthy, pleavsr.t and prosirnus new place,
among a good class of society, would do well to
pay this place a visit before settling elsewhere.
