If sugar bounty will stimulate the
beet sugar industry in Nebraska
and make it one of the leading agri
cultural industries of the state,
then let us have the bounty by all
means. Five or six years of bounty
stimulus would develop the indus
try so that both the manufacturer
and producer could take care of
himself and the bounty could then
be removed. Sugar beets manufac
tured into sugar at home and ship
ped out as a condensed product, is
far ahead of a farm staple that has
to be shipped long distance and
loses its profit in transportation

The correspondent who protests
to the New York Sun against the
quoting of a market value forwork
ingmen the same as for potatoes is
answered vigorously enough in the
following paragraph: "Because
all men arc alike, and as laborers,
by their hands or their heads, with
out any discrimination whatsoever,
they are all commodities, with their
worth measured by the market
price just like a potato. There is
no difference between high-price
goods like railroad presidents, such
as Chauncey Mitchell Depew of
New York or George Roberts of
Pennsylvania, and-a-potato. Each
is traded in according to the mar
ket price. The bijr railroad men
get great wages because the latter
are necessary to allure them from
other pursuits where their talents
would bring them large returns.
At every move in life, at every
stage of the competition, they are
but potafoes, absolutely. Between
the potato and the railroad presi
dent, or the great commercial mag
nate of any sort, there is no grade
or sort of commodity, human or
otherwise, which is bought and sold
by the market price. One effect of
labor organizations apparently is
to get the men who specially class
ify themselves as 'laborers' so stuck
on themselves as to imagine finally
that they are unique, and entitled

The California legislature is con
sidering a beet-sugar bounty bill
similar to the one now before the
Nebraska legislature. It provides
for the payment of a bounty of one
cent a pound to the manufacturer,
provide at least five dollars a ton is
paid for the beets. The Nebraska
bill fixes the bounty at five-eighths
of a cent for factories now, and
three-eighths for those that may be
hereafter, erected. This is a better
planned bill than the California'
measure. It offers stronger induce
ments for new factories and doesn't
contribute a bonus to those already
built, but simply guarantees them
