Tlio Congressional Apportionment.
.Sotti of our citern papers of this
state :n-3 severely criticising the ap
portionment bill introduced by Sena
tor Murdock and which passed the
senate last week. The truth is it
sound the knell of several gentlemen
living in the border counties who
apire to r-ervc the people in Washing
ton. Every other apportionment pro
posed gives the eastern or older settled
portion of the state all the congress
men for eight years to come, effectually
cutting ol the vwy interests that
should be represented in the halls of
the National legislature. The "Mur
dock apportionment bill," so called;
wa drafted with a view to the com
munity of interests at pre-eut existing
in this state. So far as practical with
numerical strength it seeks to make
districts that shall conform to local
interests, commercial towns, lines ol
railway, etc. Thus the lines of the
railway and travel of northern Kan
sas are cast and west and all north of
the Kaw river U designated as one
district, the Border Tier and Lawroucc
and Galveston road runs north and
south through the southweitern dis
trict. The southwestern dibtriet is
traversed entire by the A., T. & S. F.
railroad. Should the aforesaid appor
tionment obtain, it will be impossible
to elect a man from cither district who
will not be directly connected with
every paramout local interest of his
constituents and however impalatablc
it may be to the old politicians who
have "so long run this slate it is the
onlv apportionment that will give the
large majority of the people satisfac
tion. As we said before the bill has
already passed tire senate and as it is
satisfactory to the northern portion of
the stale, and just what in wanted by
the southwestern third, we are inclin
ed to believe that it will be accepted
in the cud by the legislature.
THE NEW TAX LAW.
Serai Annual Payment of Taxes.
Below we pubihh the new rcvenuo
law a parsed by the senate and which
will no doubt pass the house and be
come the law. It is an act in which
every tax payer is inteicsted, and the
entire text of the amendments arc giv
en. It will be -seen that one half the
tax falls duo no the 20th day of Decem
ber and the othe half on the 20th day
of .liino following. If the whole tar is
paid in Deccmb'er then there is a re
bate of live per cent, on the last half,
but if the fust half is not paid then a
penalty of I'm e per cent, attaches to the
whole "amount due, immediately, and
live per cent, more in March and live
per cent, more in .lime. The interest
on lauds sold for taxes i cut down
from M) per cent, per annum to a grad
uated per cent, of two per cent, per
month for the first year, three percent,
per month for the micoihI and four per
cent, per month for the third year.
The law oiler a premiun to the
prompt tax p-!.yer a-.uell as provides a
penalty for the delinquent and we
think it will woik well: But read:

The town of El Psvjo la located on the east bank j
or the gTeat Arkansas Biver, in the southeastern
part of Sedgwick county, Kansas. It has many
adautages, among which are its beautiful and
healthy location, situated on a high, genUy slop
ing prairie, snrrounded by one of the largest Uod
ies of the most fertile land In the state, which is
all taken np by actual settlers, who are energetic,
industrious and practical farmers. They are at

uhere Is a rock bottom in the river, extending
abont three quarters of a mile up and down the
stream. Oa the et bank ths rocks are about fif
tt cu feet above low water mark, and on the west
bank about twelve feet below the surface of the
A good substantial bridge, two hundred and
seventy-flve feet long, spans the Arkansas River
at this place, thereby giving the farmers on the
west side ol the river access to the town at any
stage of water and at all seasons of the year The
bridge rests on stone abutments on either bank,
and on two iron piers, which stand (Irmly on the
bed rock in the river It Is naturally the best
place on the river in this state for a railroad bridge
across ib gri at Arkansas River.
To railroads have already been surveyed to
this place; one from the northeast, vial'.ureka and
Auguita, crossing the river at this rock bottom,
the oUier from the city of Wichita to Arkansas
City, which proved to be al.nost an air line, and a
very favorable route. No doitbt, both roads will
soon be completed.
there is not the least doubt thit here is the best
water privilege In the state of Kansas. The great
Arkansas River, its source in the Rocky Moun
tains, is supplied with water In 6ummer by the
melting snows in the mountains, by rain and Its
many tributaries in winter The water is always
highest from spring until fall, yet it has never
been known to overflow its banks at this joint.
There is an abundance of water during the whole
year to run all the machinery that can be placed
on the bank for several miles below,
FEASIBILITY OF A DAM.
The feasibility of a dam across the river is not
tmestioned, a solid rock bottom all the way across
to build upon, the width only two hundred and
seventy-five feet from shore to shore, a high bank
of clay and rock on Hie east side, and on the west
side a bed of tongh clay covered with sand, ex
tending for some ways up the river above the rock
bottom. This water privilege must and will short
ly be improved. El Paso will be a manufacturing
town. The experiments last season in raising
cotton demonstrated that this soil and climate are
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 w.igon maker and
blacksmith shop, one shoe store, a meat market,
two feed stables, a good school house, and a num
ber of dwellings.
There is a good school from seven to nine months
each year. A Sabbath-school has been organized
and Is now in a flourishing condition.
Tho church organizations have been effected,
Tlz: the Methodist and United Presbyterian, each
having regular services.
JUNCTION OF STAGES.
By recent arrangiments the Town Company has
sucecded In obtaining at this place a junction of
the stages of the Southwestern Stage Company. A
daily stage runs from here to Wichita, a tri-weekly
from here to Kort Sill, a tri-weekly to Welling
ton, a dally, via Winfkld, to Arkansas City.
The timber in this vicinity consists of cotton
wood, oak, ash, hickory, walnut, mulberry and
elm. Cord wood is delivered in town at four dol
lars per cord.
There is here a good opening for business men
of all kinds, mechanics of all trades ; honest, in
dutrious, temperate and energetic men are re
The policy of the town company heretofore has
been to donate lots to those who built houses on
them. Now, for the first time, they advertise lots
Pcri-ons seeking homes or wishing to engage in
business of any kind, 'or desiring topocate in a
healthy, pleasant and properous new place,
among a good class of society, would do Well to
pay this place a v isit before settling elsewhere.
