II Briefly Compare tha Btata'a Former Btatoa with tha Condlttona Which Now Surround It Tha Number of Sohool - honaea Conatraotad Eta. Topeka, Kan., Jan. 14. Shortly after noon to-day, in the presence of a host of people from all parts of the state, who crowded representative hall, which waa gaily decorated, Maj. E. N. Morrill was sworn In as governor of the state of Kansas. His appearance at the stand to deliver his inaugural ad dress was the signal for applause, and at 13:10 o'olock he began to read from manuscript as follows: "Fellow Citizens: A third of a cen tury has passed since Kansas entered GOV. P. N. MOUK1LL. the sisterhood of states. It Is an ap propriate tirao to review Its history and to mark its progress. I ask your in dulgence, therefore, while I briefly compare its status on the 20th of Janu ary, 1801, with the conditions which now surround it. "The measure of dignity and strength in statehood attained by a common wealth will ever be found co-equal with the measure of love aud devotion borne to It bv its citizens. The respect of mankind for a state can no more rise above the respect of the state for itself, than can public respect for a man rise above his own self-respect, it may well be said that the duty of a man to defend and protect the good name of his family can only be second to his duty to defend and protect the good name of his state. "The life and experience of Kansas has fairly verified the legend upon its great seal as an inspired prophecy. It has indeed, 'climhud up to the stars through difficulties.' In its progress it has met and mastered obstacles that would have crushed amr couquered a less forceful and self reliant civilization. W. A. JOHNSON, Associate Justice Supreme Court. Faithful to its divine purpose, Kansas put more volunteer soldiers in the union army than it had male citizens of military age; and no stronger proof of their devotion to the old flag and their bravery on the field of battle could be given than the simple fact that the rate of mortality of the Kan sas soldiers was greater than that of any other state. At the close of that great struggle it found its Industries decimated; it had neither agri culture, trade or commerce. Its hief city, on its eastern border, con tained more than a fifth of the capital and productive industries of the state. There existed neither pub lic nor private credit wherewith to en ter upon a new career of prosperity. A state bond could not have been pi aced at less than a ruinous discount, if O. L. ATHBBTOS, State Treasurer. at nil fn nni' mnnair o.

I Usw'i ill 700; state house. 83,000,000; reformatory, were paid in promises to pay. uraers were drawn on an empty treasury, which, under the provisions of the law, could be presented to the treasurer, and when by him indorsed "not paid for want of funds," bore interest at the rate of 7 per cent, per annum until paid. The interest-bearing scrip was sold upon the street at a discount from its face value of 10 to 20 per cent, al though provided for by a current levy and practically sure of being paid within a year. School district bonds were issued for the construe tiou of schoolhouses under the authority of the statutes, bearing interest at the rate of 10 per cent, per annum for a period of not mora) than five years, and their sale forbidden at a price less than 80 cents on the dollar. Many could not place their bonds at all under this 20 per cent limit of dis count Even as late as 1308 the city of Leavenworth, with its known wealth and preBtige as the metropolis of Kan sas, found it difficult to sell 930,000 of its bonds to erect a high school build ing at this legal limit of discount "Yet, with all this, the fact remains, that Kansas ha moved steadily on its course 'up to the stars.' It Is safe to say as a truth that so large a measure of prosperity, so rapid an accumul a tion of wealth and surrounding physical comforts has never realized from a like Investment of money and labor, In the history of human en deavor, as has been accomplished here in Kansas since her admission into the union. Then wo had scarcely 100,000 population, now we have 1,400,000. Then the total assessed valuation of property was SM,744,363, now it- is 5137,301,723. The total taxes of 1861 was only 78,335.53, in 1893 it was 813, 103,704. The entire wealth of the stato as shown by the United States census reports was about fcl,800,000,000. The center of population was at the east boundary line of Douglas county; now it is at the west lino of Dickinson county. Then there was not a lino of operated railroad within the state; now we have 8,003 miles, only Illinois and Pennsylvania of all the states exceed ing this in mileage. 'tOn these lines of transcontinental anfl lateral railways have sprung up mote than 100 centers of population and business, cities, the least of which contain more than a thousand people, and in the aggregate 331,173, domiciled In thrift and comfort, with churches, school houses, court houses, water and light plants, not equalled in towns of like populations in any of the original states of this union. More than two thirds of these cities have increased in population during the past year, not withstanding the existing depression. The national land endowment of our J. A. THOUTMAN, Lieutenant-Governor. w. EDWAUDS, Socretury Oi State. educational institutions has been man aged by wise legislation and prudent administration, known in the experi ence of no other state, until we have an interest-bearing common school fund, in bonds and land contracts, of 89,080,093; an agricultural college fund of S502,037.3.V, a state university fund of 8110,731, and a stato normal school fund of 8137,211. The state university has received added endowment, by be quest, of a greater sum than thut from the government, but which Is not in eluded in the aggregate amount of interest-bearing funds, making a grand total of all funds, sacrod to education, of $10,407,853; the annual Income from which, at 0 per cent, amounts to the sum of $628,071.13, as a current fund to aid in the problem of education. "Thero have been constructed 9,088 public school houses, at an aggregate cost of 810,703,708, and chiefly by the sale of district bonds, about $0,000,000 of which have been paid and cancelled. In these buildings are employed 11,888 teachers, at a cost of 83,000,439.45 ayear; the total tax levied and collected for common school purposes being 83,539,: 986. 11 per annum. The total sum paid for educational purposes for tha past year in the state being about $5,S0O,00O. In 1890 we had 4,930 church organizations, with 2,854 buildings valued at 87,447, 509. "There bave been expended for state buildings the following sums, nearly all of which have been paid for from current levies in canh: State univer sity, 8320,000; agricultural college, 8180,930; state normal school, 8127,875; school for the blind, 835,449, school for tho deaf and dumb, 8144,230; asylum for the insane at Topeka, 8010, 378; at Osawatomie, 8420,000; asy lum for imbeciles, 829,073; sol $310,000; industrial school for girls, 840,700; Grand Army home, S4'J,000; making a total of SO, 152,284, to which add state expenditure of 8779,891 in construction of university, normal and agricultural college buildings, and we hove a grand total of 80,932,17", of which but 8560,000 was derived from 9t9 bopde Tot vat due and 80,372,173 READ I STANDARD II PRICES: Never in the history of Hutchinson was Groceries sold so cheap as we are selling them now.
