RAILROADS AND INDIANS. Tho Greatest Land-Grabbing Organization on Record. Three Railroad Companies Claiming 74 000,000 Acres of Pub-. ' lie Lands. “Tom” Scott at the Back of the Entire Arrangement. Row Railroad Companies Aro Going for Indian Reservations. Special Correspondence <\f The Chicago TViburw. Vinita, Cherokee Nation, Juno 9,1673. Two moro Facifio railroads aro being built for Chicago.—tho Atlantio A Facifio, which is to cross the Continent at about tho Thirty-fifth Parallel, and tho Toxas A Facifio, which pierces Texas, and is pushing out towards San Diego. THE ATLANTIO A PACIFIC Is now running from Facifio, 37 miles west of St. Louis, through tho State of Missouri, emerg ing near tho southwest corner of that State into tho Territory of tho Indian Nations, and termi nating for tho present on tho pralrio, a mllo or so west of tho Indian railroad-town, Vinita. Tho Directors have had much difficulty with tho St. Louis people, and bavo reached tho conclusion to give that plaoo tho # go-by, and to strotob forth to OUXOAQO FOB A TERMINUS. Tholr present terminus, Pacific, —otherwise' Franklin,—la the outlet of tho Alton Valloy. Tboy have only to Iron that valloy for 85 miles to connect with tho Chicago, Alton A St. Louis Ballroad at Alton, ond thus loavo.St. Louis out in tbo cold. Tbo road bas piorcod tho excellent iron-ore lauds of Missouri, add finds amplo em ployment in carrying the mineral, to St. Louis. It will soon. be bringing it to Chicago instead. THE TEXAS A PACIFIC BAILBOAD bos started on its western journey, from Mar* shall, near the eastern boundary of Texas, via El Paso, Mexico, to Son Diego, Cal., by building various scraps of road, aud acquiring others, sufficient to giro it connections already in operation over a considerable tract of country. By purchasing the Southern Pacific, it has obtained that Company's track from Shreveport, La., to Marshall, Texas, and from a point in Kaufman County, Treat to Dallas, whore a junction is effected with the Houston A Toxas Central, that connoots at Sherman, in tho north, with the Missouri, Kansas A Toxas, and the Atlantic A Pacific systems, fob omoAoo, and,* in tho ooutb, with tho Galveston, Houston A Henderson, for Galveston,tho outlet of Toxas, and tho Southwest on tho Gulf of Moxioo. From Dallas, tho track is laid wost as for as Fort Worth, terminating on tho opon prairie, like that of tho Atlantic & Pacino, with its ends pointing to tho sotting sun. Tho Transoontl aoutqt charter for a road bordering tho south lino of the Indian Territory, from Toxakana, on tho oast lino of Texas, and trending southwest to Fort Worth aforesaid, and all its possessions, have boon acquired by tho Toxas A Pacific. From Fort Worth, tho acquired and projected routo west of thoSoutbornPaciflo, tbo track pro ceeds iu a southwesterly direction, as tho crow flies, to tho western tior of counties of Texas; thence almost duo west, through Bexar Terri tory, and Pocos, unsettled country, till it strikes tho south lino of Now Mexico, skirting that lino, thonco duo west through' Arizona, and so on to San Diogo. Tho Toxas A Pacific will build un der tbls. and all Us charters; therefore, the Transcontinental routo from Toxakana, on the cast lino of Toxas, will bo made part of tho Pa cific systcra, by extending it, from its southwest bend at Paris, directly wost to Sherman, and ibonco almost south, with a little slant west, to Fort Worth aforesaid. From Sherman the Pa cific routo will start,—instead of over tho South ern Pacific lino from Fort Worth, already traced, — observing a westerly direction along tho south lino of Indian Territory, dipping always to tbo southwest, os far as tho “Staked Plain," and thence taking a sudden turn to tho south, as far as tho southeast corner of Now Mexico, whoro it will strike tho above described Southern Pacific rout?, which is from that point adopted. Various reasons are given for tbo obango of routo through Texas; the best seems to be, that tbo Company may utilize two or more franchises, carrying laud-grants, and monopolize the coun try tributary to its Pacific lino. It con also fol low both routes, if it so elects. THOMAS SCOTT Is tho President of tho Texas &■ Pacific. Ho controls the greater part of tho other linos, pro jected and otherwise, in tho State of Texas; and will make tho Pacific lino continuous from South Carolina to Lower California, and a feeder to bis property in tho Northeast. An article printed in The Tribune, on tho 6th of March last, on tho approaching completion of tho Missouri, Kansas & Texas Railroad, will have prepared the reader for tho announcement that THE GRASP OF CHICAGO is on tho throat of Texas, tho entire Southwest, and even Mexico. When the article referred to was printed, connection was dally expected to ho made between tho Houston & Texas Control, having its northern terminus at Sherman,—a prairie city of touts and temporary structures, m Texas,—and the Missouri, Kansas A Texas, having its southern terminus at Denison,-a prairie city of tents and temporary structures, ia Texas, just south of tho Indian Territory. The nine miles of rails between those two. points havo since boon laid, and a continuous lino is now in existence PROM CHICAGO TO GALVESTON, ono thousand two hundred and twenty-eight miles. The event was celebrated by an Invitation to Congress to take a trip over tho road, storting from Bt. Louis on the 16th of last month, and leaving Now Orleans for distrib uting points North, on Saturday, tbo last day of tho month. Your special has already telegraphed particulars of tho trip. Nearly 00 Senators aud Representatives, 22 journalists, and between 70 and 80 friends of tho Senators, Representatives, and journalists, including their wives, sons, and daughters, made tho excursion. THE COST OF COUMIBBAIUAT for such a party was uo trifle; could not have been loss than $7,000, and quite likely was os much ns SIO,OOO. For days the common drink was ohnmpagno. Gentlemen who rarely taste champagne at homo, and do uot care for it, drunk many half pints per day daring this trip, for the simple reason that it was bettor than the water, and more handy. It was handed around by the por ters from morning till night. Portors also made regular trips through the curs with cigars, brandy, and whisky. The feeding on route was reckless ly extravagant. More was wasted than oaten. At stopping-places the railroad companies footed the bills; and railroad eating-places do not sup ply food ad lib. for such a party as this for the more fun of the thing. Wnon wo wore delayed from Saturday afternoon till Monday morning, in consequence of a bridge farther on having been swept away by a freshet, the question of commissariat first presented itself IN ITS SERIOUS ASPECT. Tho Missouri, Kansas «t Texas Railroad had brought tho party to tho end of its lino, and pro posed to allow tho Houston & Texas Control Company, on whoso- lino thoy then wore, to have tho pleosnro of pro viding commissariat from that point. Repeated telegraphing having foiled to find anybody, oast, west, north, or south, who would undertake to accept this trust on behalf of that Company, a message was sent by a certain rail road official to Thomas Scott, informing him of their plight; in reply to which came the obo diont lightning, authorizing all whom it might concern to honor the demands of the party to any extent in the feeding line, at “ tom " scott’s expense. After this, tho President Of the Houston & Texas Central, who had been floundering about, tho Lord knows where, tho other side the broken was hoard from to tho same effect, and an arrangement was somehow patched up between them. Which Is mentioned simply to show that tho coat of victualing was no trifle, and that tho railroads must have placed a high value on tho honor con ferred on them by Congress in partaking of those expensive hospitalities, In good time we shall And our way to an understanding of bow iho Atlantio a Pacific and tlio Texas A Pacific Trans continental Ballroad-Boboraos bavo col mixed up, lit this article, with tbo joint Congressional •junketing excursion. , It baa Loon shown bow tbo A’tUnllo. A Pacific, running na far wool aa Vluita, intends to roach Chicago, and .avoid St. Louis, by. building, thirty-flvo ...miles from Us eastern terminus up tbo Alton Valloy to Alton, and.thero forming oonnootiona with tbo Obloago, Alton A St. Louis. Now. it is in ordor to show bow tbo Texas A Faolflo will also contrive to avoid St. Louis, and . ' COME TO CHICAGO. -By slightly diverging a little west from tho old Transcontinental route, tbo Toxas A Faolflo touches at Sborman on tho way South to Fort Worth, and connects tboro with tbo Missouri, Kansas A Toxas system. It thus makes con nections from Sherman to Sodalia on tbo Mis souri Facifio via Vinita. At Sodalia it connects with a lino already, running to Hannibal. Mo.; tbeuco to Quincy, ill.; oud so to Chicago by tbo Chicago, Burlington A Quincy Ballroad. It id apparent that tho eastern termini of both tho Faoiflo Beads aro on iho Missouri, Kansas A Texas, and that tboy can only roach Chicago by tho Chloago, Alton A St. Louis, and tho Chicago, Burlington A Quincy Ballroads. Now, as to tho western termini: Tho western linos of tbo Southern Pa cific, acquired by tho Texas A Faolflo. will moot tho eastern linos of tho lattor, east of San Diego. Tbo Atlantic A Facifio, which intends to radiato to San Francisco in the north, and San Diego in tho south, will mako connections with tho samo Sduthom Pacific wherever it can. Tho Southern Faoiflo commands iho situation. Tho western terminus'of both will, tboroforo, bo on tbo Southern Faolflo Ballroad side; and equally tbo terminus of both will bo on tho Missouri, Kan sas A Tox&s, in the oast. Now, tho writer will go so far as to asseH, on nndoubtod authority, jai tho Missouri, Kansas A Texas, and tho At lantic A Facifio Ballroads ARE PHAOTIOALLT ONE, which gives tbo control of tho eastern terminus to tbo Atlantio A Faolflo, aa far as trana-oontl nontai interests aro concerned; and * iho Texas A Facifio wo bavo soon to bo tbo owners ,of tho Southern Facifio tor mlnus,—which gives tho control of tho western terminus to tho Texas A Facifio. Either of tho roads, consequently, has it In its power to check tbo other. That is tho situation, speak ing of things as wo find thorn, not as wo would wlsh'tbemtobo.. It would bo insulting to tho meanest understanding to impress on tho reader what ho must have inferred already: that, in those groat corporations, thirsting for land, and spreading themselves all over tho eastern and western approaches to tho two coming. high ways, so as to cover thorn to tho exclusion of everything else, th 6 world, witnesses probably THE WEALTHIEST ORGANIZATION that has over existed. As a corporation that has earned tho char- ' actor among its neighbors of being tho stingiest, worst constructed, most misera ble apology for a railroad over mortal clapped oyoa on, tho Houston A Texas Central was long tho dog in tho manger In this connection.. The Houston & ■ Texas Central, with Its ties loosely laid on tho pralrio, and its roils economically spiked on the ties, blocked the way of the Missouri, Kansas A Toxas for many a long day. Tho lattor was tho owner ot a charter from a point in Toxas through to Gal veston, carrying 10,000,000 of acres; but' what good Was it? Tho Hbuston A Toxas Contra! was already in possession. Tho latter undertak ing was of no extravagant value to tho pooplo of Toxas; it oudod on tho opon pralrio at Sher man. Tho idea of a railroad ending at Sher man 1 "When tho Directors of tho Houston A Toxas Control found they wore losing money, however, and tho necessity of tho commotion was demonstrated in certain forcible arguments, the few rails joining their wretched road to tho splendid track of the Missouri, Kansas A Texas wore laid, aud tho lattor found tho use for which it was intended. If there was space, tho writer would fiing up his hat and go in for showing up tho HOUSTON A TEXAS OENTBAL pooplo In tbo way they deserve. It is a mon strous, shame that such a wealthy set of parsi monious follows should have had tho destinies of oue of tho finest countries in tho world prac tically stagnating in thoir hands so many years. Toxas, almost inaccessible in tho post, is now filling rapidly to tho mueio of tho locomotive’s whistle ; and meanwhile tbo railroads are attend ing to their interests iu looking aftor thoir unap propriated land grants. . when railroad-enterprise in this country was young, and money'could not bo procured in any other manner, tho Government OAYK AWAY ENOUGH LAND to onablo tbo tracks to bo laid; aud Europe stood astonished at tho spectacle of & vigorous young community, in a decade, covering the laud with a net-work of Iron, that all tbo peoples of Europe bad not boon ablo to rival with the accumulated capital of conturios. A result of - this has boon an unprecedented increase of material wealth, prosperity, and pop ulation, in tho States, that is almost incredible. From needy nurslings, tho corporations have grown a commanding power in the land, and a fooling is abroad that enough bos boon done by States to open highways at the public cost, and that enough capital has boon created and is in existence to enable tho corporations to build all tho extensions thoy want. For tho post year or two, therefore, wo have soon tbo most extraordi nary, efforts made by existing railroads to com plete tho linos carrying land-grants for which thoy have been able to buy, bog, borrow, or steal charters, so os to seize territory before the people - . • SHALL TAKE iT BACK AGAIN. Whore railroads have disregarded their con tracts, and failed to build to towns that have voted them bonuses, tho towns aro already beginning to repudiate; tho fooling of antagon ism 'is spreading; there is nothing more certain than that the people aro approaching a tom- Eor, that will force their legislators to make such iws in tho future, regarding contracts with rail road companies, that shall bind both people and companies alike ; and that will not stop at tak ing bock a charter or two if companies turn out to nave no further need for them. The last is just precisely tho case with tho great railroad organization wo havo been writing about. It has no further need for the land grants. Tho companies aro rich enough to build without thorn ; therefore, they fear tho lands may bo taken away. Hence the invito to Con gress. Tho only use tho grants would bo to them would be to enable them to accumulate THE MOST ENORMOUS FORTUNES ever gathered in a similar manner in this or any other country, • For example, take the Atlantic & Pacific Bail road scheme. Starting fromJPaciflc, as already described, tho main track soon strikes tho Ozark Mountains, whore some of the most expensive railroading in tho United States had to bo done. For ICO miles tho route is over those difficult rooks and hills. In one place tho ascent is so rapid,—averaging 85,—and the curves aro neces sarily so sharp and frequent. that a distance of four miles a* the crow files is hero increased to over nine miles by measurement of tbo road-hod. It is impossible to keep your seat in the easiest Pullman Palaco-car during the exciting nine mile dash. The cars thunder through hard rook cuttings as though all Nature was CRASHING ABOUT THEM, and there is hardly a mofuont that the locomo tive is not steaming broadside to broadside with the roar car; horseshoe fashion. It is useless to think of standing on the platform without holding with both hands or being hold. It is a terrible ride, and it must have cost the Company a terrible lot of money to have mode it. Yet it aid it. and it has reached the smooth, beautiful prairie. For *l5O miles from Vinita, the projected track lies over the most delightful laud, beautiful rolling prairie, that it is possible for the. mind of mau to conceive, with a soil similar to that of Northern Illinois, which is spoken of as the finest in the world, and no engineering difiiooltios. The Company started by t absorbing 1,000,000 acres with the South Pacific charter, in Missouri, with which it wont to work and borrowed money. It bas made financial and running arrangements with the Missouri, Kansas & Texas, that have enabled it to secure its debts; and it has earned enough not profits from Its mineral trafllo o pay its Interest, and go on laying track, and increasing the rolling-stock and motive power, lit has mode and paid for its surveys, and is to day one of the soundest concerns, financially, among all the close' corporations of America. It holds a charter from the General Govern ment granting ton miles on each aide, in alter nate sections, throughout the Indian Territory ; and its grants farther west will average twenty miles on each side, in alternate sections. There is no doubt, also, that the proprietors have, in the names of other persons, SOUOUT UP HOST OF TUB DESIRABLE LAND in tho alternate sections, to hold against oil comers, —tho price of which thoy alono can fix. having boon bought from Government at $1.26* fier acre. An instance of this kind of deal ug is well authenticated in tho case of tho Houston & Texas Central Railroad, tho proprietors of which hold nearly all the best land for ton miles bock from their lino, having bought un all thoy did not obtain by charter. Tho pneo of this land has, under this manipulation, gouo up to $4 and $6 per acre. Yet the State lands are selling at 60 cents. They keep the people from settling along tho railroad, unless thoy con sent to pay whatever price they fix. This is the little game of the Atlantic & Pacific THE CHICAGO DAILY TRIBUNE: WEDNESDAY, JUNE 18, 1878. people. Tlicy built tbo road with tbdlr ojVh means i they bavo advanced their survey-parties opt of tholr own moans} .and tboy aro abund antly able to continue iho proooss; but ‘ TREE WAN* TUB LAND-QUANT, . Mr. Dwyor, the attorney of. tbo Company, ro fused to glvo iho writer any information on tbo subject of land-grants, and the only record pub lished of land-grants to railroads falls to say anything as to this particular road | therefore, wo must bavo recourse to comparison to find ont what is' sought. Tbo Missouri, Kansas A Toxas runs through Indian Territory 240 miles, and receives a grant of 4,121,400 acres, or ton miles on each side, In alternate sections. Shall wo ovor-oslimato If wo sot down, for tho ioOmUos that tho Atlantic A Foclfio will run in iDdinn Territory, 8,000,000 acres ? From Indian Terri tory to the Facifio Slopo, tho Company has a grant of double tbo above acreage for at least 2.D00 miles, ncoordlng to tbo most favorable esti mate. Shall wo multiply tbo 8,000,000 acres by five, and find a product of 40,000,000 ? Wo will; and tbo result Is FORTY-EIGHT MILLION AGUES OB' LAND; which estimate tho writer la tho more prepared to boliovo in, slnoo a high oflloial of tho Com pany, whilst doing all ho Know to oscapo direct answers to plain questions, one day foil into a state of confusion, In which ho lot drop tho fact, most inadvertantly, that tho Company oxpootod all Its grants to foot up about 48,000,000; which was duly notod down, ana has not soon tbo light until to-day. It is a prize worth striving for,-48,000,- 000 acres : but the inquiry so far has not tended to provo that tho Company is unablo to build tbo road out of Us own profits,. and on tho plodgo of its own credit. If it so desires. . Noxt, tho Missouri, Kansas A Toxas Ballroad. This Company has earned its land-grants by building its rood from Sodalia, Mo., to Vinita, in Indian Territory, and through Indian territory to Dennison, on tho Texas border. Having earned its land-grants it bas received all tbo land of which tho Government could convoy Utlo. But It has 4,121,400 aoros XN INDIAN TERRITORY yot to receive, of which Government can glvo no Utlo. Tho land was convoyed to iho Indiana, and tbo Indians must consent to a transfer be fore tho Government can mako It. Tho Indiana will not consent to a transfer. Why should tboy,without equivalent ?—which nobody otters—of which moto in another place. Tho charter giving tbo Indian grants was conditioned on tbo Indian Utlo boing extinguished. Only Congress, by making other concessions to tbo Indians, or paying annuities or something, or by a bigb-nanaod outrage, can declare tho Utlo of tho Indians extinguished. Congress can do so, and bavo tho declaration enforced with all tho oruol force of bayonets; {[and it was in ord«r that such Congressmen ns would accept tho in vite should bo shown tho country, and wiped, and feted, and complimented, and impressed with tho foot that tho rod-skins can’t keep tho , whites from settling tho MOST MAGNIFICENT LAND In tho world,—for ouch, In truth, It Is,—any longer, or (what they did not say) koop tho At lantic A Pacific ana Missouri. Kansas A Toxas out of possession of tho 12,000,000 odd aoros. Tho Atlantic A Pacific, and tho Missouri, Kansas A Texas Companies row in the samo boat, and all that was said about the former may bo said about tho lattor with equal truth. Wo will drop tho Houston A Toxas Control out of consideration from this point, it having secured all tho land it is likely to got; and wind up with tho TEXAS A PACIFIC COMP ANT. Fancy it! tho eouthormost transcontinental lino in America, fed by and feeding tho onfciro railroad system back of Thomas Soott; a com pany that has found monoy to buy up all tho charters in the market; that controls all tho roads that can in any way effect it oast or west: always barring connections with Chicago: a rood that has built itself out of its own earnings; a rood that baa snout $7,000,000 in surveys, and can command ail tho capital it needs, and pay tho interest out of not profits I Fancy it waiting for a laud-grant to bo ablo to build I This road has onC grant which it certainly will insist on having, namely: 13,400,000 aoros outside of Toxas; it also has bought the Southern Pacific and all its grants and linos, and tho Railroad and its grants. And back of all, as wo said before, is ‘‘Tom" Scott, with half tho railroads in tho United States; and bound to it is that other Pacific road and all its connections: and inside of it is what thoy called, in tho Union Pacific Company, A OBEDIX MOBILIEB, but which they call boro tho Texas A Pacific Rail road Construction Company. If thoy imagined this railroad to bo a commercial necessity, cer tain to command commercial success, it's not waiting for land-grants they’d ho; but tho first thing wo should know would ho tho screech of tho looomoiivo that brought tho first train of cars from San Diogo. If it is not a commorcial necessity, wherefore land-grants? Tho land grauts owned by this Company will foot up, it is estimated 22,000,000 oorosCn all. Tho 12,000,000 acres that tho Atlantic A Pacif ic is seeking, by making friends in to legislate away from tfio Indiana, MUST DE PAID Foil by somebody. There is no good in supposing that tho Indians aro going to give this laud up without tboy aro paid for it, unless at tho point of tho bayonot. Personal inquiry among them, as well as among the half-broods, has satisfied tho writer on this point; and, even had ho been such an idiot as to suppose otherwise, ho oojuld havo entertained no doubts after a qulot ramblo among thorn. A good many of tho young women aro monied to whitos, among whom aro some young men from the Northwestern States, including Illinois, who describe themselves aa very happy with their dusky helpmates, hut ap prehensive of the full-blooded Indians in case tho land is taken from them. There are already over 50,000 Indians in this Territory, and they ore coming in from all sides every day, as fast as Government can ferret them out and send them on. They aro from every corner, in tho States, but clhofly remnants of the Cherokee, Creek, Choctaw, and Chickasaw Nations, driven by the whites from Georgia and the Carolines. Stray Indians from distant parts of Georgia and tho Carolina* aro dropping in every few days, and they have boon slowly coming in in this way for twenty years. It is THE TERRESTRIAL PARADISE of tbo Indians. Tho country is simply a lovely picture, respecting which, oven a played-out newspaper-hack might bo pardoned falling into admiring adjectives ; and they do not want to be sent traveling again. Many of them have farms alongside tbo railroad, outside tho 200 foot they by treaty gave to the companies ; and they will object to bo moved from this. Col. Boudinot, a woll-oclucatod Cherokee, who delivered lec tures all over tbo country on tbo Indian ques tion, aud hoe strong feelings on the subject —being the owner of 2,500 acres in Vinito, which no dare not visit for fear of being killed by tbo friends of Boss, tho Chief of tho Nation, whose tribe killed Boudiuot's father and many of his family,—ls known at Washington; and he is trying to got a kill passed, EXTINGUISHING THE INDIAN TITLE, ‘ and providing that ail sales of land shall bo ac counted for, tho funds to ho applied to educa tional and public purposes, and tho land to bo governed os a Territory. At present tho Territory is nominally owned by tribes, and, by internal arrangements, each man can appropriate all ho con squat upon: but ho has no individual title. Boudinot’s bill would give each man, woman, and child 160 acres, inaliena ble till 21 years of ago, after which lie or she might dispose of it hi whatever way ho or she f ole disposed. All tho othbr lands should bo sold for 91. 25 per acre, and thus they would got rid of tho railroad dilficuUy; because every aero the Government sold to tho roads, tbo Government would havo to pay $1.26 for to the Indians. Altogether, Congress has an elephant on hand n this uow Indian railroad question. T. M. Tho Indians* Washington, Juno 17.—A letter received from a teacher in the Kiowa camp, at Fort 8111, says that a very friendly feeling exists on the part of the Indians toward the General Government, which will bo increased on the restoration to them of Batanta and Pig Tree.
