DODGE CITY. THURSDAY. HAKCH 31 SUBSC1E1IT10K: II 00 per year. In advance. fl.B. KLAl.tE. Editor audPablHbrr. In Kansas there is a promising condition of the wheat crop and an ircreased acreage. Of 35 reporte, 27 are good to excellent, 5 fair or not much damage, 2 not to favorable aa a year ago, and I a lud pro'pect. This hu been an eventful w.ek in atd about Great Bend. The calender of crime would be complete with a cold blooded mur der to cap the tbeaf. Mobs, drunkenness, larcenies, gambling and kindred amuse ments. Tribune. Reports from various sections go lo con firm the statement that the wheat crop of this year will equal the immense crop of three years ago, and that the corn crop will be above tbe average. This la gooJ news for thoee interested io the grain business. Canadian papers Mill mourn departures for tbe United Stales. Tbe Gait Reformer mentions the departure week before lrst of twenty persona from Wilniot for Kansas whither many of its citizens hate gone in she past two years, and alto o! two dizen persons Ito-n CheKierCeld for tbesame State. A number of the leading a:ock men cf Colfax county, X. 51., are availing them selves of tbe godd pasture in tbe eastern Kr tion o! this county and will extaMi'h an Im U)ene slock ranch. In tbe valley of the Canadian south of Fort Baeccm they are fencing a small range of 250,000 acres. Messrs. Chase, Dawson, SUulding, Porter, Springer, and others we understand are in terested in it. They will stock it with from 10,000 to 20,000 bead of cattle. As the new tranrcontinental route is at tracting so much attention, tbe following table of rate, distances and fare agreed upon by the lines may prove of interest to tbe pur "ic generally: 1LATES FROM ATCIII50X OB KANSAS CITY.

The Ship Ilailway and annexation will come in due time. TUE XEW OYERLAXD ROUTE. There were forty-to through passengers frcm the Pacific on the train that pissed east yesterday ncxan. It is not merely tbe novelty of traveller; by the new.oyerland route tbat is the explanation of tbe heavy train, but ia an index of the great travel that is likely to pass over the A. T. & S. F. and Southern Pacific reads. Emigrant trains will be put on as soon aa can be arranged for, so that express trains will carry only those holding first-class pusecger tickets, lbe Southern Pacific owns its own sleeping cars, which are vastly inferior to those of the A. T. A 8. F. railroad. They are paint td a bright yellow color, as also are tbe pas senger coaches. A train thus made presents a fine appearance from a distance as it goes kimming along on the iron roadway. The interior of the sleeping can is fitted Up in light woods, and there is a lack of that lux uriouanm so noticeable in the Pullman cars of this road. The comparison may be ex tended to the passenger coaches. The dis tance from Kansas City to Ban Francisco is 2.35S miles, and requires five days in transit; three nijjhts and two days from Kansas City to Dern'mg. and three days and two nights from the junction to San Francisco. Lai Vagal Quelle. KAXSAS AND COLORADO. Ten years ago this month, a dinner was given by Colorado people to members of the Kansas Legislature, at Manitoa Springs. After dinner a gentleman delivered a speech to the gueat in which, among many other good things, he said it was well that Kana:s and Colorado were so near each other; for wh'de Kansas had tbe wheat and corn to feed tbe miners of the mountains, Colorado bad tbe gold and silver to pay tor them. He referred in glowing terms to what the pres ent argued for tbe future of the two states when lir.es of communication would be es tatlmbed between them so that tbe farmers of Kanus would have tbe beet market in Colorado for their grains, fruit, horsef.mules cattle, sheep and bogs; that une would grow rich by her fields, paaiorrs and orchards, and tbe other by Lcr mines and manulac lure?. Since the time of thatpecch many chang es have taken place in both states, and in tbe line of the prophecy tten uttered. FruU has been lor teveral years ehipjied from Kansas to Colorado. It is as good as that which comes from California; it sells as readily, and tbe transportation co-is loe. Colorado is almost exclusively a mining and manufacturing state. The farmers there will never pielccd to supply the home market with farm and garden products. There all must come from other places, and Kantas is far ahead of all comrelitors in the ability to supply tbem. It la time tbat Kansas farmers arrange for this western market which must grow better every year Our Co'orado neighbors need just the things we have to sell. UV have wheat, cora,uiur, fruit, vegetable, meat aqd stock, and these axe what tbe mountain boys want and have the money to piy for. Our railroad system U rapidly developing, so lhat it will not be long until tbe lines of commerce will ac commodate therm-elves to the locations of tbe new niarlels. Our epring criia are es pecially always good. Onions, potatoes, le.tuce, Ac, and the small fruits never fail. Thee could be aide profitable beyond cal culation. If tbe farmers would organize in ibis matter become xnonopolis s in their own intercut, they could soon create and control a trade fioin which immense profiis mnet inevitably accrue. The tuject is ell wurtly a tention. Topeka Capital. J, W. Brown sold a section of land north of Ellinaood, on Cow Creek, this week, lo a Mr. Hutrhics, from St. Paul, the considera tion $ S, 000 ca-h.
