Auotlier Letter'frwm James F. Jsy "W.
CUandler upon IQr. Joy'a First Let
terlie shows ibe Demand for the
Lands and tne Talue of tlie Grant.'
To tho Editor of the Post and Tribune :
For the purpose of obiainlng means of
inUTcQtnmuin&ition between the 1 ro
v'neo of Quebec and the maritime pro
vince of the Dominion of Canada, the
government has built tb Intercolonial
Road from the eastern termination of tiie
Grand Trunk to Hlilax. It runs
through a country a unsettled as the
Upper Peninsula of this state from Mar
quette to Mackinac.
There was no means of communica
tion between them, except by w.iter.
The means of communicatioa were so
important that tbe government expend
ed many millions to build tbe road. The
United States loaned their credit to the
amount of a great many millions to se
cure a land route, by rail to California.
These things were a necessity, and the
money and credit were well used, even
though the . respective governments
should l003e the entire amounts ol both
money Invested and credit lent. .
Wh.it citizen ot the United States
would consent that the railroad to Cal
ifornia be broken up, even though the.
Government might be compelled, to pay
the bondi lent to aid its construction ?
The loss of the mouey would 'not be
felt. The loss ot the railroad if it cuild
be broken up, would derange very lrge-
ly the business ot the country, aud dis
turb all the relations between the Pacific
and the Atl tntic states.
On a smaller s-cale the situation be
twern the Upper and Lower Peninsula
of Michigan are relatively, as in either of
the caseb alluded to above. Once let the
railroad be built and its advantage, come
to bo Mt and fully known by experience
in the business aud progress of the state,
and every one would realize its value,
and (eel that no amount of aid, within
the reasonable means of the state, could

.t road There might be gold a few
ttiousaud acres ot land in this way, but
I think it would be entirely safe, to say
that for every thousand acres sold, with
no gain whatever, to the state ten thous
and dollars would be lost to the luud.
The truth is, that while a tew l.md in
the grant might thus be old, it is iu the
main, the whole ot it, of no value with
out the road. If the lew thousand acres
which might be sold, doulJ be sold for
cash, at the highest prices the Stale could
get tor them, the amount realized would
be but small. Tbe construction ot the roid
through the middle of the Upper r Pen
insula, would gite value to all of them,
and what is now, aud tor forty 3ears hits
been wholly worthless, and .will remain
so in the main, would then become
valuable fund. To open the lands for
sale, therefore, even It they could be all
sold: instead of tbe choicest lots, would
bo tbe sure way to dtstroy all possible
nope oi tne con simction ot a road so
important and vital to the future pros
nerltv ot the whole slate. As ihevreallv
ly would be sold, 'the state would realize
nothing except laud warrants. There
would not be even the small consolation
that our state tax would be lessened by
tbe ten-thousandth part of a mill by the
proceeds of the sales. Can any one im
agine a more unwise thing than to invade
or destroy this fund in land, which is all
we have got to aid iu building this road,
by such a policy as this ?
The inducement for captalists to build,
the road, it it can be built at all, is In
the fact that they will realize value
which they themselves will give to the
lands by the investment of their money
and the construction of the road. TakeJ
away that expectation and we may cer
tainly Liy aside all hope of It, for forty
yearn, or nntil the state, driven by the
great necessity there is for its construc
tion, shall amend its constitution, so as
to allow the Legislature to make a di
rect appropriation of such au amount of
money as will build it. an alternative
which will come very slow, and after the
state shall have been kept back In its
progress lor a great many years. The
sole hope, therefore, for long years of
that road, is in the fuli preservation of,
and the appropriation of this laud to
that object. If this be done, in my judg
ment though I mav err we shall se
cure the road.
The country Is emerging from the dis
astrous state of business which has ex
isted during the Jast few years. Capital,
which has so long been largely idle, is
again gradually seeking in vestment, ami,
considering that at present cost of con
struction a railroad m ly be good pro

ago, with this land grant faithfully kept
for a short time longer, It wil." be likely
to be temp:ed into this enterprise. Iu
every light with which we can view it,
therefore, the true, wise poliey ot the
state is so to keep and devote it.
I will again remark in closing these
articles that I have not now, nor do I
expect or Intend to have any interest ex

prosperity in the enterprise if it shall be
Some three or four ye rs ago in dis

thought, to the whole slate, and especial
ly to Detroit, I stated that I should soon
pass away as a railroad man. That lias
substantially come ;ibout, and though as
yet I am not entirely relieved of railway
management, my determination is to be
so at the earliest possible moment. Un
der uo circumstances, therefore, nor with
the fair prospect of making any amount
of money .could I be induced to embark in
in, or cniiit others into Hny new c.iter
prie, lor which I should be iu any way
responsible, and my fixed purpose is to
retire from all old ones. What I have
aid therefore, on this ' subject, has been
dictated solely by my interest as a citi
zen interested in common with idl others.
As such, and perhaps with more experi
ence than most others iu matters ot this
nature, I see an opportunity, such as
rarely happens, by the proper use ol
which the state may be set forward, or
retarded in its progress for a long series
of years, and have sought to d what
was in tny power, that it should not be
neglected or lost. J. F, JOY.
' We take the following cxttnct3 frcra a
letter from W. Chaudler to the Tost and
Tribune, in which he reviews Mr. Joy.s
first letter. Mr. Chandler's position as
collector of the Sault canal, was such as
to enable him to obtain a correct knowl
edge of the amount of immigration to
Chippewa county, and the consequent
demand lor these lauds, and he speaks of
what he knows, and his letter clearly
ehows the value of the lauds:
In regard to the immigrants coming to
Chippewa county iu search of homes, 1
would say, and 1 speak from personal ob
servation, that during the past year they
have dropped in by t he scores and huud-
eus every week, each Canadian boat
bringing from half a dozen to 40 and 50.
La rue numbers came with their families.
stock and farming utensils. Chippewa
eounty increased in population during
the p.:6t year, from this cause, not less
than 1.000,' and as many were turned
away because ot their inability to obtain
laud. Every acre of available U.iited
States land wiihin a radius of 24 miles
b.ck from the Suiit has been either pur
chased or homesteadeJ, aud many
have gone ' back much further than
that. As to the exact number ol acres 1
have not the figures at hand, but any one
sufiicienlly interested can obtain them at
the land office at Marquette; but they
will go high up into the thousands.
There are some, aud their number is not
a lew, who have "squ itted" upon . these
"reserved . state lands, preferring the
risk of ejectment and litigation or both
to going to the country far back of these
lands, the condition ot which will pre
vent any roads being made over them.
It is a matter ot serious importance when
a great tide of immigration is setting to
ward a portion of otu state, which has
until within a tew years been considered
practically worthless, to turn away tbese
people, with alj their wealth ot labor, be
cause the lands cannot be purchased. It
is not only injustice to the country to
ward which tiie people are looking for
homes, but to the entire stale as well.
Iu regard to the number of acres of these
state lands which might have been sold I
would cdl attention lo an extract from
tiie Lansing Republican in relation to
this m.ttter, ihe editor of which, W. S.
George, is not iu the habit of making un
advised ttatements.- We mut theieloie
conclude that he had somewhere near
the official figures when the article was
written. Ilsays: "Ihe building of the
Marquette & Mackluas raihoad would
doubtless add to the prosperity of the
state; but it is also a fact that ni least 300,
000 Kcres of these lands, would have been
Mjld had they been iu the market." The
public prints have not exaggerated thi
mutter. Mr. Joy states that no large
quantities would nave Deeu taken tor
cultivation, and that In the vicinity of
the Sault is the only locality where they
would have been taken lor actual settle
ment. In relation to the first proposition 1
would call attention to the fact that sey
eral large settlements have gone mto
Schoolcraft county, and more would have
gone could these lands have beeii pur
cha-ed. Neither is the intimation given
by Mr. Joy, that the demand for the lands
U cnieny irom speculators, correct
Speculators could have procured them
years ago bad tney so desired.
' It was the Immense demand which
has - come from immigrants for these
lands, lor actual settlement and cultiva
tion, wnicu called the attention ot spec
ulators to their valne.- It has been found
that tor wheat growing these lands in
m the northern peninsula are unexcelled.
Experience has taught tlntgeneral firm-!
ing Is profitable in that section:
1 lie interests of the entire state of
Michigan, both norlli and south, demand
the construction of Marquette & Macki
nac railroul. and, did not the constitu
tion ol the state prohibit such a cdiiroc.
the state could well afford to give a suf.
ticieut money inducement to secure its
immediate buildiiu; but as this cannot
be don', the only thing rem lining is to
secure its construction as soon as possible
by the aid of this land grant. Any other
course would be suicidal to the best In
terests of the state and a c damlty. It is
also true that the land composing this
grant is very valuable and that the best
interests of the state demand Its settle
ment and improvement as soon as possi
ble, and that no man who desires to locate
upon it be turned away. The question
is; Can these conflicting interests be
harmonized? I think the.' can be, and
at the same lime work to the benefit of
tbe proposed road. Theiemedyis sim
ple. Let the Legisla! ure pass au amend
ment to the act appro ichiug these lands
for the construction of ihe road, to the
eflect that the lands composing the grant
win ue sold to iictual settlers, not ex
ceeding ICO acres to a single purchaser,
at a price to oe established alter an ap
praisement by commissioners, or at an
established price say $2.50 per acre j
and upon such terms as would be equita
ble; the fund arising from such sales to
be held iu trust by the state lor the ben
efit ol the road, payable upn terms the
same as or eimilar to those upon which
the land is given l hem, or upon terms
i hat the Legislature may deem proper;
these sales to continue until such a tune
as the company shall complete I lie road.
and thus obtain patents tor the laud not
thus disposed of. If the company think
that it can do better with the lands than
the state, let it build tbe road and take
them. It certainly is not policy, neither
is it justice, to retard the growth and set
tlement of the slate, as h.-.s been the case
during the past two years.
Ihe main reason why capital has not
been forthcoming to construct this road
is the lack ot knowledge concerning the
value ot the land grant. The sale and
settlement of the lands, in accordance
with the above proposition, would give
the public an idea of their value. The
exhibit which was made ra the 1 He state

these lands ior agricuhurxl purposes. For
