Kansas, Pacific States Newspapers Directory, 1894


Kansas was organized as a territory in 1820. A prolonged struggle was had over the slavery question and it was not admitted as a State until 1861. The richness of its soil has made it one of the great agricultural States of the Nation. The Pacific Railroad system assisted immigration into all parts of the State and aided greatly in its development. It has a rolling surface well adapted to tillage or grazing. Timber is scanty and of voluntary growth. Coal is mined in the western half of the State. All the cereals are produced in abundance, also fruits and sugar from sorghum. The State has within its limits about 10,000 miles of railway. Manufactures are increasing yearly. The State has an area of 82.080 square miles. Its extreme breadth is 400 miles and its length 200 miles. Population 1,427,096.
