Herewith is riven some of the addresses delivered on that occasion. The Railroads of Kansas. BT JAMES HTOirilEET. If, at the date of the admission of Kansas Into the anion as a state, the whole popula tion then existing upon her soil had been so grouped as that oil her traffic or commerce could have been carried over railroads, 400 miles of roads would have been the utmost which that traffic would have supported.
