William Hepworth Dixon, White Conquest: Volume 2, Chapter 4: General Sheridan. (search)
is of greater extent, and, in a military sense, of vaster importance, since it runs from the British frontier to the Mexican frontier, and cuts off every line of intercourse between the Eastern and Western States. This great division consists of four departments, called Dakota, Platte, Missouri, and Texas. The Department of Dakota comprises the State of Minnesota, with the Territories of Dakota and Montana; that of Platte, the States of Iowa and Nebraska, with the Territories of Utah and Wyoming; that of Missouri, the States of Kansas, Colorado, Illinois, and Missouri, with the Territory of New Mexico and the district of Camp Supply; that of Texas, the State of Texas, and the Territories of the Indian Nations, with the exception of Camp Supply. These regions form the ordinary province over which General Sheridan rules, but on coming to New Orleans he has brought with him a secret power to add, at his discretion, either the whole or any part of General McDowell's division to his ow
William Hepworth Dixon, White Conquest: Volume 2, Chapter 19: our Yellow brother. (search)
l be thrown on the world, Illinois will be robbed of an artistic industry, and five or six thousand Mongols will come over from Hong Kong, of whom five or six hundred will find lucrative employment on our shores! As we ascend the mountains of Wyoming, we begin to meet our Yellow brother on the track; here skipping nimbly as a waiter, there drudging heavily as a hedger and ditcher; but in every place silent, docile, quick, and hardy. Sam shrinks from these mountain blasts and winter snows. Good wages tempt him to come up; but when the icy winds enter his soul, he prefers the squash and sugar-cane of South Carolina to the elk and antelope of Wyoming. Hi Lee can live in any climate and any country; in Bitter Creek, as well as in San Jose and Los Angeles; caring, it would seem, for neither heat nor cold, neither drought nor rain, neither good food nor bad, neither kindness nor unkindness, so that he can earn money and save money. At Evanston, an eating station on the heights abov

er English mothers have enjoyed in wedded love. But how is moral order to be kept in regions where there are two males to each female, as in Oregon, three males to each female as in Nevada and Arizona., four males to every female as in Idaho, Wyoming, and Montana? No other civilised and independent commonwealth shows the same phenomena as America. In 1871, the United Kingdom had, in round numbers, a population of thirty-one million six hundred and seventeen thousand souls. Of this tothe excess is slight — not more than seven in each thousand souls. In others, such as Utah, Indiana, Arkansas, and New Mexico, the surplus male life is not excessive. In California, Kansas, and Minnesota, the excess is striking; and in Arizona, Wyoming, Idaho, and Montana, it is enormous-three to one, and even four to one. Does any one need evidence as to the moral and social aspects of a region in which there is only one White woman to four White men? Physical loss appears to follow close
William Hepworth Dixon, White Conquest: Volume 2, Chapter 35: the situation. (search)
. So, when Illinois, Iowa, Nebraska, and Kansas were incorporated. No one had drawn a line about Kansas and Nebraska. These regions were supposed to offer homes to any number of inhabitants, thirty millions each at least,with a farm for every family. In these four states the land is already taken up; at least such land as anybody cares to fence and register. The greater part of Kansas and Nebraska, and enormous sections of Dakota and Colorado, are unfit for settlement. Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, and Utah are mountain plateaus, high and barren for the greater part, suited, as a rule, for nothing more than cattle-runs, conducted on a large scale, too vast for anyone but a great capitalist to occupy. On the Pacific Slope, from Washington to Upper California, no wild land, remains, and not a great deal of available public land. According to Hazen's Reports, the same rule holds good in Texas, New Mexico and Arizona. Near the Mississippi, the lands are damp enough; but as you march
