The South Pacific received a grant of lands under an act of Congress passed June 10, 1852, of more than 1,000,000 acres. Under the Atlantic and Pacific Railroad Company's charter, about 500,000 acres have been already received and secured by the company, namely, 480,000 acres in Missouri and 20,000 acres in Arkansas. The receipts from the sales of these lands are applicable—first, to interest on the bonded debt, and the balance appropriated to paying off the bonds at a price not exceeding 110 per cent.

The Pacific Railroad Company of Missouri was completed to Kansas City October 2, 1865. The following named roads are leased to that company on the terms mentioned : Missouri River Railroad, for 20 years from July 2, 1866, the Pacific Railroad Company paying $50,000 a year for five years, the rent to be increased every succeeding five years $10,000, until, for the last five years of the contract, $80,000 a year is to be paid ; the Leavenworth, Atchison and Northwestern Railroad, $42,500 a year; the Osage Valley and Southern Kansas Railroad, 35 per cent of the gross earnings; the Lexington and St. Louis Railroad, which this company own, 6 per cent gold on $1,000,000 first mortgage bond, and, in addition thereto, nine twelfths of net earnings after paying interest ; and the St. Louis, Lawrence and Denver Railroad, a conditional rental of $75,000 a year.
