Iu 185G Theodore Parker made the following prediction concerning Kan sas: -'In the year cf our Lord 1900, there will be .000.000 people in Kan sas, with cities like Providence. Wor cesterperhaps like Chicago and Cin cinnati. Jler land will be worth 820 an acre, and her total wealth will be .")00,000,000 in money; 000.000 chil dren will learn in her schools. Tfiere will be a Pacific railroad perhaps niv.ee than one. The 114.000 square miles of Kansas (82,000 of which have been given to Colorado) will till up with educated and industrious men, each sharing the labor and govern ment of societ-, helping forward the wisdom and .progress of all; aiding the organization of Christianity and democracy. The south will share with the north in this better organiza tion of things and persons this de velopement of industry and education. There will never be another slave state nor another slave president; no more kidnapping in the north, no more preaching against the first prin ciple of humanity." Leavenworth Times. Kansas Appropriations. The following is a statement of the estimates of appropriations iu which Kansas is locally interested: Expenses of collection of internal revenue taxes in the state, $15,800. Fulfilling treaties with Pottawat omies. 20,(547.G5, support of Indian school at Lawrence. 08,000. Additional barracks and school building at Fort Leavenworth, $47,000. Support of military prison at Fort Leavenworth. 104, 003,25. The last appropriation was $1)1, 107.70. Among the items are, repairs to buildings. $5,250; horses, wagons etc., to re place others, $2,000; one farmer aud gardener, $1,200; clothing for prison ers discharged. $4,050. Current expenses, including con struction and repairs, at western branch Xational Soldiers' Home, Leav enworth, $10(.),500. Salaries and commissions of regis ters and receivers of the laud office, $53,800. Care and preservation of postofiicc building. Topcka, $3,315. The bill before the senate, commit tee on judiciary fixing the compensa tion of United States court officials makes the following provision for Kansas: District attorney $4,000; one as sistant attorney, $1,500. Dakota, Nebraska, Kansas. Stock may go up or down, times may be hard or good, but the growth of the west continues. Both the sta bility and the extent of this growth appeax-s anew from recent statistics of the public land sales. Those whose views are limited to to-day's tape will find there is little to interest them. On the other hand, those who care more for values than for prices all kuow how to appreciate and construe figures elonuent of the srrowth of the new communities, producers and consum ers demanding railways and support ing them. In the fiscal year ending with last June the sales of public lands declined, it appears to 10,0S?. 341 acres. That is only 747.114 un der 1SS2-3, but it is 2,150,481 under 1883-4. This decline i& generally dis tributed. The southern states, me mining states and Utah show smaU in creases. Only in Dakota territory is there a very Large decline, and even there the total remains uuapproached except bv two other states Xebraska nnri Knnsiis which shows large in creases. Those three states form a belt of territory between the niuety- ivtli ;iml one hundred aud fourth meridiaus and stretching from Canada to the Indian territory. What Ls lost in the northern end of the belt is made up in the southern, and thus the westward march continues even-footed. In Dakota the sales were 3,744. 13G acres, a decrease of 2,326A71. In Xebraska 3,515,705 acres were sold,. ahnwino- in increase of 900,604. In D ' Kansas there was an increase of 1.S47. 20S upon the sales of 2.S32.401. The comparison hpemnrc mmv cm- prising as it is extended in duration. That there is a decline comparing one year with the next is much less strik ing and significant than the constant tendency to growth. For instance what is a decline of 7-17.114 acres in the sale of 1SS5 as compared with 1SS3. when, as compared with the year of the resumption of specie pig ments. S70. there is an increase of 7,834.081? The s:me holds true of the belt of territory which includes a very large majority of this year's sales. In 1SS3-5 the sales were nearly station ary in the neighborhood of 10.000,000 acres, while in 1S79 the figures were 0,550.010. A few comparisons will bring these figures more clearly before the mind's eye of the eastern readers. In Kansas the land thus settled is on ly a little smaller than Connecticut; in Dakota and Xebraska seperately the excess of new farms above all Con necticut is about one seventh of that little state. The total sales in seven years is twice the size of Xew Eng land. At that rate there will soon be no public land for sale, and the old world problems of population and subsistence will be closer upon us. That these sales imply agriculture and population appears from the railway mileage. Railways are not built in solitudes and deserts, nor arc they laggards upon the demand for them. In the belt of territory above describ ed there are 18.951 miles of rail, against 0,020 in 1879. A comparison of the prosperity of these roads with the bankruptcy and dissension among the eastern trunk lines will lend fresh meaning to these statistics. Xew York Times.
