The prayerful attention of St. John It

THE AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE.
The Indvttrialiit direct! our attention to
a mistake occur! ng In the columns of The
Kaolk touching tbe number of scholars
attending the State Agricultural College
and itt resources. Nearly four hundred
students are enrolled tblt year. Having at
one time been the bead of a committee up
on lbs part of the State to examine into
the affairs of that Institution, and having
voted no ltt than six appropriations of
.State money, of course we knew that the
State only provides tbe Improvements. The
Agricultural College Is, we also know, the
most liberally endowed educational Insti
tution In tbe State, and that It is now more
prosperous than at any time in its past his
tory, not excepting cither tbe administra
ting of Dr. Denuison or John A. Ander
son. JEFF. DAVIS WAKENS UP.
Jefferson Davis, last Saturday at New
Orleans, In a speech incident to the cere
mony ol decorating the graves of the con
federate dead In that city, and tbe laying
of tbe comer toue of a monument to be
surmounted by an equestrian statue of
Albert Sidney Johnston, eulogized tbe
characteristics of the dead leader. In
Johniton was recognized a strong pillar of
the confederacy, and when he fell ou tbe
field of ShIIoh the mightiest column which
unstained the cause had fallen died in the
moment of victory and had he lived half
an honr longer he would have made Grant
a prisoner or a fugitive. Tbe confederacy
had three great leader : Lee, Jackson and
Johnston, who would compare with the
leaders of antiquity or modern times. At
a banquet In tbe evening the speaker reil"
rrated tbe same sentiments.

NUIENT AN OKLAHOMA.
Tub Eagl,Iwo weeks since, published a
communication Irom K. II. Nugent, of this
city, showing up at least tone of tbe true
Inwardness of tbe Oklahoma Boom. The
letter was published without comment or
without even having been read, and simply
on the standing of itt author, whose char
acter for truth and veracity has never been
questioned In this city. A new paper, pub
lished at Augusta, called the Adtance,
whose editor, for anything we know to the
contrary, may be a butted boomer or one
of Cap's cappers, takes it upon himself to
say that Mr. Nugent was kicked out of tbe
Oklahoma organization, and that he thinks
Mr. N. is not worthy of belief. Either the
editor of the Adtanct is excessively im
pressible or Aery cheeky. II he stands
at well In Augusta at Mr. N. stands in
Wichita, he won't be running a patent
The editor of the Caldwell Commercial,
who has known Mr. Nugent for years and
Intimately, has something to say on the
question. As for ourtelves, we have never
looked upon the Oklahoma scheme than as
a swindle. When the government, the first
time, kindly notified the invaders that It
was unlawful and would be resisted, then
It was time for all honest men to halt. Tbe
Commtrcial says :
A letter from K. 11, Nugent, of Wichita,
to The Eagle, copied in another place,
will be found mighty Interesting reading.
A plain, honest man, tells In a plain, hon
est way, tbe true inwardness of Payne's
operations, and his ultimate object in or
ganizing the raids he has heretofore made
into tbe Territory. Mr. Nugent has been a
warm, personal friend of Payne in the past,
and has almost, if not quite, robbed him
sell and family to keep the dead beat alive.
Payne haa reciprocated by endeavoring to
lead the old man into a dishonest and dis
reputable proceeding, and in other ways
hat shown himself to be honest in nothing
and a parasite upon an unsuspecting pub
ARBOR DAY PROCLAMATION.
Executive Department, )
State of Kaxsas,
TorEKA, April 4tb, IS!. )
To tit Ptopte of Kariiat :
The subject of tree culture, which Is of
importance to tbe country at large, I of
paramount importance to Kansas.
lly thoughtful minds tbe steady and rap
Id disappearance of our forests Is viewed
with apprehension. The matter of future
demand and supply, even In older States,
has become a question of great moment.
The disappearance of tho natural growth
ol timber has btcn followed lu many locali
ties by the drying up of springs and brooks,
a decreased annual rainfall, and a conse
quently Increased recurrence of seasons of
extreme drouth. The presence of trees and
lorcsts, it is conceded, exerts a direct and
controlling influence upon tbe moisture of
tbe air, Increasing tbe amount of rainfall at
well as serving to lessen the extremes of
temperature, and. modifying the severity of
climate and season.
Wisely, tbe attention of the General
Government has been directed to this mat
ter, and It has received substantial recog
nition at the bands of our National Con
gress in the papsage of what is known as
the "Timber Culture Act," which has for
its object the growth of timber on our tree
less pralrjcs, which provision is being taken
advantage of by many settlers.
Kansas embraces within her limits lands
that are unsurpassed lu fertility, offering
exceptional advantages in the way of easy
and Inexpensive cultivation, and that are
being developed aud settled upon with a
rapidity that Is perhaps without a parallel
in the West.
Therefore, that the past gratifying degree
of development and Improvement may be
maintained, and if possible increased, I,
G. W. Gllck, Governor of theState of Kan
sas, hereby name
Tkunlay, thdHth day of April, A U. 1KS3,
to It oltercrd at Arlor Day.
Having for Its aim and purpose the com
mon Interest and general welfare of tbe
Stale, and embracing In its design results
so beneficial and far-reaching ; this day
sbould be observed by all classes. In con
sideration of the claims of future enjoy
ment, and of ultimate profitable invest
ment. Care should be exercised that the
selections for planting arc made from such
varieties as have been approved by tbe
tests of time and experiment, as best suited
to the conditions of our soil and climate
Especially school-house grounds should be
Improved and beautified by setting out
trees and shrubs, so as to make them ap
pear beautiful and attractive.
Let It be borne I:: mind, that the person
who plants and causes to grow if but a
single tree or beautiful Bhrub or vine is
contributing his or her mite In the way of
added attraction or Inducement for the
settler, which will tend toward that richer
development and ul.lmatc standing ol Kan
sas in the galaxy of States.
In testimony whereof, I have hereunto
subscribed my name, and afilxcd the great
teal of the State, at Topeka, the day and
year first above written.

TEXAS SOLD OUT.
A year ago tbe State Legislature of Texas
ceded a portion of the State known as the
Pan Handle, comprising three million acres,
to a syndicate composed ol C. B. Farwell,
J. V. Farwell, A. Taylor and A. C. Babcoek.
In consideration the latter were to erect a
capitol building for the State In Austin, at
a cost of $1,500,000, thus fixing tho value of
the land at fifty cents an acre. A London
syndicate has just been given tbe refusal
of the entire tract until April 15th, and tho
sale It declared at virtually concluded. Tbe
price it stated to be 910,000,000 for a tract
of 6.000 squire miles, which comprises tbe
northern arm ot the State, which it declared
rich in arable and growing land, watered
and timbered to such a degree as to attract
three English syndicates, who sent agents
across the water for the purpose ol. making
the purchase. Tbe last agent wade two
propositions, one to rent for tho privilege.
of grazing stock, and the other to buy the
land outright. The sale wai closed on the
latter proposition, on tbe condition that tbe
first payment be placed to the credit of tbo
Chicago owners In the Bank ol England at
a date named.
THEY ARE HUNGRY AND WILL STEAL
(jutte a tempest Is being raised over the.
action of the board of penitentiary com
mltsloners. The coal shaft at Leavenworth
was sunk to supply the demand of the ag
ricultural and manufacturing Interests of
the State at the lowest possible prices ; and
the price or coal at the shaft was to be the
same to all. The commissioners have de
cided that lu tbe event that the prodnct of
of tbe shaft exceeds 30,000 bushels a month,
it is to be sold to tbe local trade at tbe usual
retail price, leaving tbe "material interests
ot tbe State'' to look out for themselves.
The contract for supplying tbe local trade
it let to a private citizen, of Leavenworth,
who gets tbe coal at GJ cents a bushel. Ac
cording to tbe Leavenworth Timet tbe dif
ference between this and tbe retail price
amounts to from Sto !J eentt a bushel, and
It it thought the surplus will be from 14,000
to 10,000 bushels a month. Even if tbe
State got tbe benefit of tblt arrangement it
would hardly be right, as It waa not tbe
purpose of tbe Stato in sinking the shaft to
make money out of it by extortionate
charges, but at the matter standi it it a
downright swindle. It was thought that
with pioper management the penitentiary
would become self-supporting' In another
year, but this monopoly move will keep tho
Institution a burden upon the treasury.
Our anti-monopoly governor will hardly
gain friends by lending his Influence to!
such ascheme for robbing the people; but
remembering that be is governor by accl
dent, with no chance of ever getting there
again, he will doubtless continue to make
hay for bis friends while tbe sun shines,
regardless of the wishes and interests oi
the people. PUatanttm Oottntr.
