It is 770 miles in length, and its maximum breadth is 330 miles, minimum breadth 150 miles, the mean breadth being 240 miles. In the family of States it ranks second in size, Texas only having a larger territory. It has an area of 158,360 square miles, or 101,350,400 acres, more than three-fifths of which, it is estimated, are susceptible of cultivation, or may be profitably utilized for industrial purposes.

According to the census of 1890, its population numbered at that time 1,208,130.
