Green's Administration.—The history of Gov. Green's administration must necessarily be short, as his service as governor lasted only from Nov. 4, 1868, to Jan. 12, 1865, a period of two months and one week. In that time nothing occurred to call for the exercise of any unusual executive ability on the part of the chief magistrate. On Nov. 30 the state officials filed reports showing the expenditures for the year ending on that date to be $457,169.09, including $182,769.04 as the proceeds resulting from the sale of $200,000 capitol and penitentiary bonds.

On the same date the trustees of the blind and deaf and dumb asylums made their annual reports, showing the institutions to be in good condition. This was the first annual report from the trustees of the blind asylum. The trustees of the insane asylum at Osawatomie made their report on Dec. 15, and announced that the asylum was occupying the new building.

Probably the most important event during the incumbency of Gov. Green, was the surrender of the hostile Indians to Gen. Phil. H. Sheridan on Dec. 24. This virtually ended the depredations of the savages on the frontier settlements. Hazelrigg says: "From that time, their removal from the state to the Indian Territory was rapid." (See Indians.)

Josiah B. McAfee, adjustant-general, reported on Dec. 30 that from 80 to 100 persons had been killed by Indians within the limits of the state during the preceding year. His report also showed the claims of Kansas against the United States amounted to $814,990.22.

With the inauguration of Gov. James M. Harvey on Jan. 12, 1869, the administration of Gov. Green came to an end.
