'.' ,! The Fence Problem In ttrlet. '
Tho Dayard Transcript in an article in its last issue
tersely tells the facta in tho case regarding the removal of
fences, n the ran6hing sectipns of the country.' We hero
reprint it: -
The Transcript does not believe these great newspapers
entirely understand the points at issue regarding these
fences, as wo cannot think- they would wish, to gloat over
acts which can only prove very detrimental to residents of
this section. In the first place, these fences cannot work
injur' to any one, aB the land enclosed is notsuitablc for
homestead entry because of tho fact that, in- tho sandhills,
under the fences complained of, 160 acres -of land is abso
lutely worthless to anyone, as no man could make a living
upon a single homestead, consequently no one desires to
homestead it. Under fence iii large tracts it can bo profita
bly used for "ranging largo herds of cattle. Dy removing
the fences but one result can follow. Cattle from the large
ranges will' drift to the bottom lands during stormy weather
arid there cause much annoyance to tho farmers and smaller
cattlemen. ' Thus the pnly people directly interested have
good caijse for desiring tho fences to remain as at present.
Tho contention in favor of removal is .that it is to enforce
tho law. True, it is tho law 'the act bcintf passed away
back in tho eighties, .and has always been a dead letter for
tho reason that no oncconcerncd wanted it enforced: It js
not the only dead-letter, law there aro others. Jjfthcso
great . metropolitan. pa'pers back cast really want to do
something for tho country, they should 'acquaint themselves
with facts In the case and then start nn agitation for the
repeal of this bad law, instead of demanding its enforce
ment. A jittlo investigation among tho people out' here
will prove that above statements Voice tho. views of nearly
every settlor. Uopcal tho.Iaw." Pending tho repeal leave,
the fences ajone. , ' , , "" ; '
Senator Millard intimates that Colonel Mosby has seen
u mountain in a'niolc hill in the fencing of public lands by
the catUe barons, but the Colonel insists that his',cyesight
is aB good now as it oyer was. Omaha Bee.
By shirking about $250,000 of atatc taxes and' grab
bing off 2,700,000 in additional freight rates', the railroads
make a neat profit on the money they invested in electing a
republican state administration,
Fou something more than a year Theodore Roosevelt
has been talking about curbing tho trusts. But nary a trust
has been curbed. On tho contrary dozens of now trusts
have been formed and the old trusts have. waxed, bolder
and more arrogant, Mr. Roosevelt's trust thundering has
all been exhausted in the advance notices.

Eskimos Dying Frbm Want. t " '"','
Appended we publish a letter from C. K. Snow, one of
the editor! of tho Nome, Alaska, Gold Digger, to his fftmif
ly in this City speaking of the dire Condition of the, Alaska'
Eskimos with a proof sheet of ft portion of tho Gold Digger
which contains an article written by Mr. Snow upon tho
subject. It is to be hoped that by tho time ships may
again visit Alaska the government shall have taken, steps'
for tlio alleviation of these friendly disposed, helpless
The Herald will do what it can to start and keep tho ball
rolling to achieve such result' by sending marked copies of
this issue to the department at Washington and to the Ne
braska senators and representatives and our. exchanges,,
hoping that those sources will aid in making tho" matter
public and help thereby ,bo given.tho sufferers.

UNCLE SAM'S, NEGLECTKD CHILD.nuK.
Peace, friendship, fidelity, intelligence, and a desire to
learn a better means of making a livelihood are very poor
qualities in, natives, though in whites they aro among the
best. Such natives are. too soft, too pliable, and .can bo
too easily moulded into something more than heathen.
What we want i9 "sterner stuff." Blood, treachery,
ignorance, indolence, and a determination to remain so.
TJien would Uncle Sam stretch ou his fatherly hand with
plenty Of bread and meat. He would not even wait for the
prodigal's return but would go forth in all. his tender love
to caress and fondlo the ,wayward child, though ho spat in
his faco whilo doing so, and the child who has been most
obedient and willing was left at home with, a cupboard
where once thcro was plenty bijt long since made bare- b
his great prot(ctors'(?) benevolence and a Jtearth where
once there was glowing .embers surrounde'd ' by a happy
family, now desolation itself, to starve and' die a christian
dcatli, as becomes a child of one so great. I If the Eskimo
had followed tho example of his much-inferior cousin in the
States, and had massacred the first settlers and harrassed
the government with constant outbreaks, always ready with
knife in the back or a shot from tho luish.Uie would not be
left to starve; but like the Sioux, Crows, Apaches, and other
gentlemen in various parts of the United States, he would
quarterly receive fresh meat, horses, tents, blankets, and
everything to make life tt luxury to a native.
Every day on faie streets of Nome we can sec the
wretched condition of the Eskimo, and well we know it is
the white man who has done this. Ho has kdlcd their
game, burned their fuol, and Worst of all ho has brought
diseases withwhiclr they are unable to cope. -1
Will the government of an enlightened christian nation
let these once contented, Happy people perish for the want
of a little of the attention she gives her less worthy at
tendants? They have, and froirt all appearances they will,
lly virtue of an order of salo issued uy

MISS MAGGIE BARY, Proprietress
Good Table Board
v Comfortable Rooms
Nebraska at St. Louis,
Thure is considerable opposition manifested toward tho
proposition that Nebraska should be creditably represented
at the St, Louis exposition. It is argued that because Mis.
souri failed to participate in tho Trans.Mississippi exposi
tion Nebraska should retaliate by refusing to participate in
the St. Louis exposition. This is uot a good argument, nl.
though it is based on a very human sentiment. Nebraska
should be represented at St., Louis not extravagantly, but
on a plane commensurate with her standing among the
states caned out of the Louisiana purchase. The Chicago
fiasco should not be repeated. Nebraska should have a
small but neat" building where Nebraskans may make their
headquarters, and good displays should be made in the ag.
ricultural, horticultural and floricultural buildings. Talk of
an appropriation of $100,000 is, wo believe, all nonsense.
Such a sum would be an invitation to profligate manage,
ment and an inducement for adventurers. There should
not be any numerous body of commissioners drawing large
salaries, but two or three experienced exposition men ap
pointed at a fair wage to attend to all the preliminaries and
be held accountable for every dollar expended.
Twenty. five thousand dollars would be an ample appro-
priation. Nebraska is not. financially able at this time' to
make an effort to compete Willi states like Illinois, Pennsyl
vania and New York in the matter of buildings and displays,
but is financially able, to make a goodly showing of her re
sources, The Chicago and Trails-Mississippi appropria
tions were extravagant and were dissipated by hangers-on
who drew salaries and never earned a fraction of them.
The Nebraska building-at the World's fair was a botch and
a disgrace to the state, and there is a well founded bus
picion that its cost concealed a large and well developed
Let Nebraska profit by past mistakes and make a neat
and creditable display at the St. Louis exposition tCdis
play that will be worth its cost.' V
. . Getting What They Voted. For.
.' A majority of those voting at tho last .election said by
Jhcir votes that they were willing that the'railroads should
have full swing. And tho railroads aro taking.it. , The
voters said the railroads might have license to evade their
taxes and enforce exorbitant freight rates, 'and the license
is exhibited in the faces of the officers elected at last elec
The railroads now announce an increase of two cents a
hundred in the rate on corn, and three cents a hundred in
tho rate on wheat. That means not less than 52,700,000
additional freight charges violently j'erked out of the pockets
of Nebraska farmers. , But the railroads aro entitled to it.
They were told to go ahead and hoist the rate?. They were
told that their selections for state office were all right, that
their evasion of taxes was proper, and that their methods of
gouging the farmers were O. K. Why shouldn't they grab
off a neat little bunch of money bv elevating the rates?
Didn't they spend their good money to. elect theg. o. p.
ticket? Of course they did somethiug like $100,000, and
$2,700,000 is only a fair profiit on an investment of $100,000.
And the farmers who voted for that sort of thing
what of them? Of qourse they are delighted at the idea of
being gouged. They enj'oy it hugely, else they wouldn't
have agreed to it. Therefore let them cough up the
$2,700,000 and look pleasant. They knew the republican
state administration had brazenly permitted the railroads
to shirk their just share of taxes. They knew that the elec
tion of the republican ticket would be notice to the rail
roads that any elevation of freight rates no matter how
high would be all right. Why? Because the democratic
platform pledged the democratic candidates to enforco a
reduction in rates and the republican platform was silent
on that point. Apd silence gives consent always.
We feel a sympathy for the man who stubs his too on a
projecting nail. But when he deliberately wajks up and
jams his sore toe against that same nail the second time we
discrad sympathy and declare it served him right. The
farmers who voted the republican ticket deliberately stub
bed" their toes on the railroad nail not forjthe second,
third, or even the fourth time, They have done it so often
we can only believe that thev dearly love to nurse sore toes.
