county, if a majority of voters decide
in the affirmative, should bo carefully
reviewed in tho light of these facts be
fore the tax is voted or levied for the
purpose of sinking a coal shaft through
these non-paying coal-mea-ures. We
submit that the evidence already ac
cumulated is enough to prevent the
waste of this money ; for the experi
ment, from all the analocie in the
ca-e. is certain to be a failure. The
citizens of Otoe will find, if they go
deep enough with their Miaft, poverty
and bankruptcy long before they reach

well near the city. It passes through
the same series of thin veins, one of

but not workable.
At Eort ccott, nnd several points on
the M. K. Fort Scott k Gulf Railroad,
deep sounding were al-o mad. At
tho Iat named place the boring pas-ed
through 1 1 veins varying from 4 to 24
inches, all equally worthless.
At Lawrence, Topeka, and as far
west as Junction City, depths have
been reached from .ro0 to WO feet,
with the same cheerless returns, viz
no workable coal at any depth below
the surface. These facts are much at
variance with Prof Swallow's eloquent

farmers and towns in the vicinity of

ness. At Tecutaseh this vein has
thinned out to le-sthan 10 inches and
has almost, if not entirely, disappeared
before reaching the valley of the Big
Blue River. But it appears to have a
greater range north and nouth. It is
found north and northwest of Omaha,
and in all the river counties of south
east Ncbraka and Kansas. All state
ments however, such as have been
made concerning this vein "that it
will increase to four or four and a-half
feet in drift-mining" are simply and
only efforts of pure imagination by
some, pure fiction by others. Seeing
that tho upper or surface vein ha
neither thickness, quality, nor reliabili
ty, and that all the lower veins arc
uniformly thin and useless, we anxious
ly inquire what, and where, are the
sources of fuel for the State of Ne
braska ? The people of western Iowa
nnd northeast Kansas have the same
eouccrn in this que-tion. It is a fore
gone concta-ion with all the people of
lbe-e States that eoal is abundant, but
very deep, and henco the views here
will not be generally accepted. It i&
very desirable to please the people and
train the applause of our fellow citizens,
especially just before election, but it is
exceedingly difficult to do thia by mak
ing a coal mine in every county. The
only practical road out of these diffi
culties is to make timely arrangement
to procure our coal from places where
it is both cheap and of good quality.
Those who will htill per-ibt in throw
away sums of money iu a vain cearch
for coal. led on by irresponsible par
ties, may recall the old maxim, too
late ; "tho fool and his money soon
part company. 1 hose who are thus
duped iuto these expeuses call it "de
veloping the country" and there is no
law against it.
The present supply of eoal for Ne
braska comes mainly from the mines
in the Des Moines Valley, also from
minos in the valley of tho Chariton
river, Mo., and from mines in south
eastern Kansas, in the vicinity of Fort
Scott. Those coals differ but little in
ability to produce heat or steam. The
Fort Scott coal being freo from impu
rities, is generally prererred.
A ton of these coals is equal to 3
cords of such wood as we find growing
west of the Missouri river. Coal at
$S per ton in Nebraska, establishes
the price of wood as fuel at $2 66 per
cord. If iome persons more remote
give $9 per ton for coal, it is only giv
ing $3 per cord for wood. Those,
therefore, who complain of a scarcity
of fuel iu Nebra-ka, can only complain
that wood is $3 per cord. The policy
of railroad companies iu regard to local
freights, hould bo especially" low, so
that any where in eastern Nebraska
coal can he anordeu at f n per ton
the equivalent of wood fuel at 2 per
cord. Upon this basis wo have fuel
from eastern and southern mine- both
cheap and abundant. The great fault
appears to be that it is not mined be
neath the soil of Nebraska.
A family of five persons will consume
an average of ." tons annually, costing
from $35 to $ 15. This will require
the proceeds of three acres of wheat,
or ." acres of corn, or the price of a
colt, or a 3-year old steer. Is the fuel
bill for a year really a burden to any
farmer in Nebra-ka? With equal
reason we could complain of the cost
of clothing, which is the same assay
ing that we would creatly pro-per if
we could dipen-e with food and cloth
ing altogether. We respectfully refer
the fuel-faultfinders to a residence with
some of tho Indian tribes whovc habits
and fa-hionE make their burdens easy
in this respect.
The comparative value of mineral
fuel or eoal and vegetable fuel (wood,
corn, and sunflower) may be interest
ing to farmers who are now trying ex
periments with the various kind of
fuel in Nebra-ka and other western
State- where coal and timber arc not
abundant. The best experiments give
tho following re-nlt:
An average corn-stalk and one ear
will yield six ounces combustible mat
ter. An average sunflower yields nine
Om ton corn-stalks and ears yields
4.70 lbs combustible matter.
One ton of sunflower! yield 650
One cord cottonwood 600 pound,
One ton of coal 1700 pounds.
The unexplored sources of eoal in
Ncbraka are the Tertiary, Cretaceous
and Permian formations, occupying
the middle and western portions of the
State, The Permian formation has
been found by Professor Aughey, of
the State University, to occupy a con
siderable portion of eastern Nebraska
immediately overlying the receding
coal mea-urcs, as already described.
It is probable that this formation will
that they will be found much farther
east in Nebraska than in Kansas, be
cause the trend or direction of these
coal bearing rocks is toward the north -east.
The most natural -upplyof good
coal to a very large portion of Nebra
ka is, or rather should be, tho great
deposits of eoal or lignite, first reached
on the Union Pacific about 60 miles
west of Omaha. These depo-its cvu
si-t of 1 1 vein-, 5 of which are worka
ble, varying in thickness from 6 to 27
feet. Their outcrop are cut by the
V. P. R. R 3t interval- of .r0 mile-. '
This coal is very pure and eaily mine. '
It can be placed upon the car for f ."0
per ton, and -hould. with a lileral
railroad policy, be delivered at Omaha
for 10.50 per ton, and at Kearney
Junction for 5 per ton, or at any I
point lie t ween Kearney and Lincoln,
for at leat id per ton.
It would be eminently proper hero
to show the advantages resulting from
a thorough geological survey of the
State which should be carried ou in
connection with its well endowed and
prosperous University. The schools
of the State alwas need systematic
instruction in geology and natural his
tory, and no lesson- would be so ac
ceptable and profitable as those de
rived from your beautiful domain.
Tho most profitable miningiiu Nebras
ka, however, will be found in the up
per stratum or alluvium, and will be
carried on in placer diggings of various
dimeiisiou?. The diligent worker in
this clas of mines will bo .-urely re

earth must be deeply stirred and a

The golden harvest now in sight in
