James G. Blaine Knows of the
At tho state fair held nt Topoka, in
September, 1882, our uext president,
James G. Blaine, delivered the follow
ing address, which will be read with
interest by every Kansan at this time.
Some of his prophecies have already
been realized, and before he leaves the
white house, all of them will be:
Soldiers and fellow citizens: I am
happy to be with you to-day. I am
glad to meet the people of Kansas,
for I am under great and deep obliga
tions to them. I am glad to meot and
greet the soldier of Kansas, because
the country is under deep and great
obligations to them. 1 came from a
dislaut home to be here to-day.
I left on the early morning train of
Monday, and traveled until the sunset
and again until the sun set and rose
yet another time before I saw your
place. And yet, beyond, to the west,
a man must go through as many sun
sets ami as many sunrif-cs before the
imperial republic baths its western
shores in the great Pacific sea. It is
a great thing to be a citizen cf such a
republic. It is an important thing to
have had any part in saving sucli a re
public. Applause aud cries of "that's
business." And for this bright star
of the thirty-eight, this marvel and
miracle of Kansas, what shall I say?
In 1&54, a period within the memory
of men w1o still call themselves young,
it lay Lore a vast, open watte, us little
Used to civilization as the steppes of
the Caucasus, or the plains ot Tar
tar'. AFTKIt DEEDS.
Since then we haAe seen the emigra
tion of intelligence, heroism aud man
hood, and before a single generation
lias filled its appointed lot on earth,
these wilds have become peopled with
more lhau a million free ami indepen
dent American citizens. I do not be
lieve the like has ever been known in
the progress of the human race. And
upon you, gentlemen, incident to great
and rapid growth, thcro devolved
What have you done in the material
world? Ot't of this great wustu you
have created a valuation of more than
$200,000,000. Why, gentlemen, this is
buj little more than your annual pro
duct, aud the valuation of Kansas to
day in any money scale that represents
its" relation to principal and true pro
gress, would be well estimated at $1,
000,000. Another fact is, that during
the time that Kansas became a state,
until this hour, the progress of the
United States and tho world has been
more marked than at any other era.
Aud Kansas has justly maintained it-
majesty as a state.
Dining the tweuty-one years since
its admission to the American Union,
twice as much wealth has been created
as was added to the accumulation- of
the civilized world from the discovery
af America by Christopher Columbus,
to the commencement of the period
referred to in 18801. The property of
the Lnited btates, counting as prop
erty -1,000,000 of men held as chatties,
$16,000,000,000. Striking out that
part held as t-lac property, it was
$12,000,000,000. To-dav it is $50,000,
000,000. What dors this indicato for the lu
turt? The time will be in the memo
ory of some of those whose v oung face
cs are now bcloru me, when Kausa-t
will have .ri,000,000 people, ami, will
export more than the wliold United
Stoles did when KaiiMi became a
State. Speaking of the pr.-iiriDs of the
west, I)ouglas- Jeriold ayh they need
but to be tickled with a hoe to "laugh
with a harvest. That is what they
have doue for you. With but one
eighth of your land in cultivation, you
are sending to the markets
markets of the world, enough to feed
the entire nation. I was about to 'ay.
WHO THE l'EOri.E AHK.
The people are an English speaking
people. A large number of you, how
ever, came here with another tongue,
but we are people of rapid a-simila-lion.
Tho-e coining to us from Ger
many, Denmark, Fiance and Italy be
come in the first, aud assuredly in the
second generation, American people,
speaking the Knglish tongue. When
our lorcfathers won the battles of the
Revolution, there were not in the
world more than;i5,000,000 who spoke
the Knglish language. To-dav the
number exceeds 100,000,000, and they
contiol a large majority of the com
merce of the entire world.
Now, therefore, it is not only the
citizens of Kansas, not only the citi
zens of the United State of America,
but as belonging to the English
speaking race, that responsibilities are
laid upon you, which will be handed
down, not yet fully performed, to your
children and to your children's child
ren. 1 remember, myself, very well,
(I do not count myself anything but
young yet. Laughter only M. You
call that young don't you?) hearing
Gov. lJitiner, of Pennsylvania, say
when alluding to the mountain dis
trict of that state, hen the valleys
and fields would be unable to furnish
fooil for the men working in the
mountain. I have lived to see that
prophecy fulfilled. The relation of
Kansas to the mountains ami mines
west of her closely resemble those de
scribed by Gov. iJittner, and a like
change is coming upon her.
WHAT SHALL UK.
1 believe, as I believe anything yet
undeveloped, that the time will come
when the products of Kansas will be
carried westward over her border, in
stead of eastward. The time will come
when tliu workers in the great moun
tains aud great mines will be so nu
merous that even these fertile plains
will be taxed to keep them living and
That is a strange civilization that
has nunc upon 11. When Cortez came
on his romantic trip to Mexico, a col
ony came under the Duke of Albu
querque and settled in New Mexico.
They were there titty years before our
forefathers' feet struck I'lvinouth
Itock, and a century before William
L'enn sailed up the Delaware. The
civilization planted with the colony
has remained there intact and pre
served to this day, and it wn my for
tune in three successive congresses, to
meet men as delegates from New Mex
ico whoso fathers had settled Span
iards there forty-lhc years before the
Knglih landed at Jamestown. The
ciilizatiou of the Spanish hidalgo yet
remains aud is still preserved
As to addressing this great crowd, I
might as well attempt to address New
Mexico and Arizona (' or all New
Kugland," cried a voice.) meaning a
to space ofcour.se. Well, we of New
Kugland all have a share in you. I re
member when they disputed 'owe
years ao in congress on the improve
ments of the Mississippi liver, when a
representative from the northwest
said : ' We own the Mississippi river
because wc fnrnUh the water." In
the same way we claim a largo owner
ship in Kansas, because wc furnish the
men. We have an interest in you.
There is not a state in the east, nor a
county, nor a neighborhood, hardly a
lamily that has not a representative
among you ; even those states which
to the last generation were the great
west, Indiana, Ohio and Illinois, .ire
largely represented in Kansas. Thai
is what makes mc feel as much at
home, 1600 miles away, as on my own
hearthstone, and among you of Kan
sas, 1 feel that I have a prhilege. It
lias been a source of much gratification
to mc to meet your public men. I
know your presc'nt honored and dis
tinguished senators. From the be
ginning of tho settlement of the states
of our Union, since the earliest days
of colonial adventure have in their his
tory such romance as marks that of
It was the battle aud selected by the
forces of slavery and freedom, w'herc
the challenge thrown down by the ag
gressive southencr was taken up by
the 6low and cautious northern man.
The south had been defeated in plant
ing slavcryupon the western coast ana
California turned to the Drairies of
Kansas as a field where the contest
should be more bitterly fought out.
I am no there to discuss politics, and
what I have said simply recalls histo
ry, and I say the history of Kansas,
for heroism, the advance of free labor
and free soil. If that be politics make
the most of it. It is politics in which
Democrat and Republican can freely
discuss tinder the same pine and fig
tree. I cannot go through that histo
ry. What more shall I say?
Even the prophets of old In recom
mending the works of faith had not
time to tell of Gideon, and of Barack,
and of David, of Jonathan, of Samuel
and of Sampson, and what 6hall I say
of this young Sampson of the west ?
It shall' be recorded of you as of the
men of faith in olden times, subdued
kingdoms have wrought righteous
ness, have obtaiued promises, stopped
the mouths of lions, quenched the vio
lence of fire, escaped the edge of
6words, weakness have been made
strong, waxed violent in battle and
put to flight the armies of the aliens.
KANSAS WHEAT IN 1864.
It is too early to count our bushels,
but there is ho harm in guessing up
on tho facts elready known. The acre
age in wheat this year is estimated at
two millions, At the rate of fifteen
bushels to the acre the aggregate
jicld would be thirty million bushels,
about the 6ame as we had last year.
If the average yield should reach the
figures of 1882,"or a little over twenty
three bushels per acre, the total yield
would reach upwards of forty-six mil
lion bushels. Putting it at twenty
bushels the average, we will have forty
million bushels; that would be enough
to supply all the people in Kansas, aud
of seven other states of the same pop
ulation, allowing five bushels, the
usual allowance, to every person old
This is a graud showing for so
youug a state. Let us see about the
movement of so large a crop. Four
hundred bushels is a lirge load for one
freight car. At that rate it would re
quire one hundred thousand cars to
haul our wheat crop. Allowing twen
ty cars to the train we should have five
tliousaud trains, aud giving to each
train one-half mile of the track, the
procession would be twenty-five hun
dred miles long. Putting the cars to
gether in one solid train, and move
them by an oveishot water-wheel,
driven by the Niagara, and we would
have (thirty feet to the car) live hun
dred aud "sixty-eight miles of solid
train, or nearly half way from Tope
ka to New York city.
Forty million bushels of wheat at 7j
cents per bushel, would amount to
thirty million !o!lars. That, at $2j,000
per mile, would build 1,200 miles of
railroad ; at $25 per acre it would pay
for 12,000 hundred-acre farms. It
would be equal to $30 apiece for one
million persons a little lcs9 than the
population of Kansas. It would pay
for ten school houses at $1,000 apiece,
one court house at $10,000, five
churches at $3,000 each, aud twenty
bridges at $.100 apiece in evcrv one of
the eight v-ono organized counties of
the state; and there would be money
enough left to buy for each of the two
hundred thousand families in the state
one sewiug machine at $2.5, one Jersey
cow at $.50, and one parlor organ at
$00. Kansas can grow wheat.
