IMMIGHATION TO KANSAS. The far-seeing, lib-ral iolicy of tbe tied grant railroads is giving a revival to tie immiitiation bocm ti this State. Tbe lew rates of fare 6:ve nearly everybody an o, pmttinity to take the excursion travel. Thr rrtult has been that thousands of fcop'e have vieited Kansas within tbe past ten dies; and many cf these people have selec rd 'orations and will make settlement early inlherprinr. Tbe flittering wheat pros pect4, and all eyes be ng Kan-taaward, wr way expect a ecison ol unjual acivity next year. We adviee Ihns e who select the wrelera portion of the S ate for eettlemem, to come provided with means loeogage in mock raiding, a pnrea't admirably adapted to thiseicioi of country. The older settled portions i f Kansas will strive to secure tbe linrer pottiin ot imrniralion, and on thi ptint the Lea vtn wi r h Times fay: 'Efery indication p tints to an immense iaiuiigia ion from the S'a'is eaet ot u, and nni Europe, to Kanaa for Hi; com'nj: tseveminthe The reporte which, were gr. ttotar, have been most induslrioul ciriula'ef, of failure and famine in Ksnsae ilurir'g the year j'l-t tut, havejdlcjlitei' to ii jure the repitation of tbe Stiti; yet throunb the contradiction of these reor and tbe extra efforts put firth by tbe rail roids, in sdvtrii-iig and reducing the fate for nr ie ccm'ng here to look around, the imlications are that the itnniigraii.m to Kansas for the year 1SSI will be at o ct Mining and surpruing.

The legi'atme will paai s'ringent laws tor the enforcement of the amendment, and provid ing a constabulary force to make arris s nn der these law.

Public sentiment will increa-e i. favor cf prohibition, because it ia the law, tl oath drunkenness msy notdiminisb. Pro hibition will check drinking, but it wi I net top it. In most communities public feelin; will be against drinking, and in thoae place there will be a axial ostraciam of those who seek the indulging bowl covetously. This is where tre power of prohibition will come in a a'rorg sentiment in favrr of the enforcement of tbe law. J. F.

The Las Vegaa Optic gives the names of thoae engased in tbe plot, being liars Huda banzb. ''Mrsterions Date." "Littlo Al-1-n, Bennett and others. These parties) are not unknown ia tbe annals of crime, oa this border. The Optic says of Budaa uaugh's gang: For some time the ganghaa been la New Mexico gradually approaching Las Ve;aa Fust ICudabaugb and twelve va-gals were near San Marcial. afterwards at Port Sumner, where they separated two week ago. anil congregated again in a sequest ered spot on tboPeciee. thirty miles touth west of the city. In this rendezvous the plan of action was perfrcted. Spies came into town and taking advantage of a lull injailaCairs, managed to pass tools and keta in'o tho bands of the men in the cell firm which the birds have flown. The imcof the break was understood to the hoar. By working quietly tne prisoners were successful in gaining tint open air. Skulking tnroatih the outskirts of town they went to a point out en tbo old Santa Ve trail, south of tbo wcit side,, and thera found hmses in wait. A sharp drivo brought them to tbo camp of the linspitaMe Undabauab. and Defore daybreak they were trooping over the prairies en route to a mora genial clime than any of them ever hoped to find in Montezuma. Al a meeting of th Kansas Acadomy of Science Mr. II. R. Hilton, of Tnpefca. ruail a paier on thn rainfa'l in its relation lo Kansas farming. The piper dicn-sd 'be dillerent anils of the.St.ite and their onwrr of absorbing moutiirc. When Kansas was first anttleel it was tbongt the Stale could not be cultivated, except along tbe valleys west of Tupaka. Now good crops are raised 03 miles nett of the east linn of Ilia State. Unltivatinn. p'antitig forests, stopping devastating prairla tires, and a cbacge ol, grasses ,"l,h mulching have been tbe principal means of thJjo great changes. Adrv stratum of a'r near the earth pre vents precipitation of moUtaru. and the s'orirahaie a tendency tu piss nverns. Storms have become, less violent and more cencral. The changes soing on bar tended to osrablish a connection between tbe earth and tbe clouds. We must pie vent radiation anil iaereass depoeitiou of mntstnre. As an evidence that oar former dry c'itnate is passing awav tbs nvneo formerly so common, and a result "f a dry clinatc. is now seldom seen. Western Kansas mav never hive as math rain as Eastern Kansas, but the soil does no: re quire it. In Westein Kansas wheat cm ba raided in four years in liao eoadilioa. Stock should be raised in Western Kis-js, and farmers should learn to plow deep. Tbe author believed that Kansas ein, by applied science, be nude one of ibe bat agricultural States in tbe Union. Tbe Minnehaha Irrigating ComsanT was organized a few day aan, and all the stock taken, principally by men of the A. r. & 3. F. B- K. The charter embraces al! tbe land south of tbe Arkansas river between tbe hills and the bed of said river, and from a point above Lakia to the Hopt kins place, opposite Sherlock. This largo bottom ia about twenty mile long, and from two to six miles wide, and for lni- gating purposes, is aoeqaaled by any part of the great valley of the Arkansas, A ditch will be constructed shortly, anl landa on the south side will be in deaiand- Garden City Optic ITon. Robert Andsrson and J. W.Ellis, district clerk elect ef Pratt county, were in Kingman Saturday, looking alter the interest of tne Arkansas Bivcr and Wes tern railraad. Pratt county at las recent election voted in atd of the contraction of this road $102,500, bat submitted the proposition in such way that tbe fiiat road built through the county get tbe bonds. As this county has also voted bonds in aid of a railroad we look for work to begin on th line la a short time. Kingman Citizen.
