Omt e. d. c. says that the commis
sioners' proceedings are published in
two republican nawspapers instead of
being printed in paprs of opposite
politics. Strange, that republicans
should favor republicans, when there
is so much democratic phosphorus in
the county. It is also passing strange
that the advent of the exponent of
democracy had not been foreseen
when the contract was awarded some
seven months ago. The board will
learn now kotc to do those things.

Dear Sir: Yours of the 2nd inst to J O
Hill at Ft. Scott, together with copy of
his reply to you. reached me at this
point on my arrival from Dodge City
yesterday P M. I find here such a
ma?.- of correspondence which requires
immediate attention that I am com
pelled to be quite brief in reply to your
request for points. The corporation is
formed under Kansas laws and com
posed of Kansas men, some of whom
(notably so J O Hill ) are thorough bus
nesa men and practical railroad men
of great experience in the construction
f Kansas railroads. The purpose of
the corporation is to connect by a
short and direct line the railway sys
tem of Nebraska with that of Texas by
a line of road from somewhere about
your point in Nebraska in a south
westerly direction through Kansas,
crossing the Arkansas river at Dodge
City, thence in a general southerly
course to south state Hue west ot the
lUOth meridian, across tne 35 mile
strip of the Indian Territory, and into
and through the Texas Pan Handle
to connections with the Texas roads
that are already pointing northward
with their extensions. For the last
week I have, together with our chief
engineer, been investigating the coun
try lyingjbetweeu here and Dodge City
and find an entirely practicable
route, and the sentiment of the people
entirely in its favor, and tne character
of the country all that could te desired
only that it is undeveloped by a rail
road. I have had papers giving no
tice of our actions so far sent to your
mayor and postmaster. I will be here
till sometime next week, probably
about the middle, aud then will go
north through Rooks and Smith coun
ties, Kansas, and to your town. I sent
the engineer back to Dodge City yester
eaj to join his corps, and he will com
mence to lay in the Ifne from Dodge
north, probably about next Monday.
I would like very much to know what,
interest your people feel :n this enter
prise and what assistance I might
reasonably expect from them in aiding
them in the preliminary work. Would
be glad to hear from you or any of
your citizens, or I would 'much prefer
to meet some of you personally I am
here. Letters'and telegraph will reach
me till further notice, addressed Hayes
City, Kansas, care of John Schuyler.
