The remaining deputies have had to contend with almost insurmountable difficulties in the shape of desertion of assistants and that of procuring escorts; but, notwithstanding the many detentions and grievances that beset the deputies on every side, they are all using their utmost endeavors towards completing their respective contracts.

One hundred and forty descriptive lists have been made and transmitted to the proper local land offices.

One new map of Kansas, in colors, has been made and transmitted to the department.

Diagrams and transcripts of field-notes of the base line through fifty-nine ranges have been made and furnished to the surveyor general's office of Iowa and Nebraska.

EXTENSION OF PUBLIC SURVEYS.

Under this head I have but little to say. The constant inquiry for public lands, and the rapidity with which the recent surveys are being located upon, are facts sufficient to prove to the government that a further extension of the public surveys is necessary. The future progress of the Union Pacific railroad, eastern division, is also another incentive in that direction, as the grading parties on said road are already at work beyond the lines of the present surveys.

Commerce on the plains has been seriously retarded this year, on account of Indian hostilities, and travel thereon has only been safe when under the protection of a heavy escort of soldiers. Very respectfully, your obedient servant,

H. S. SLEEPER,

Surveyor General of Kansas. Hon. Joseph S. Wilson,
