Apropos of the seed grain question
the following Chicago dispatch appearing
in the daily papers will prove interest
ing to the people of western Nebraska:
The Board of Trade committee in charge
of soliciting funds to buy grain for the
drouth sufferers in tho west has ap
pointed a sub-committee, consisting of
Messrs. Seaverns, Congdon and Ray
mond, to work among the merchants
of the city at large. Urgent requests
for seed have been coming in much
faster than funds, and the Board of
Trade people say something must be
done. A dozen counties in Nebraska
and as many in Kansas must be helped
out. It is not a request for charity, as
the funds are loaned on mortgages on
the next crop, which promises to be a
good one, considering the present nature
of the soil. President Cable of the Rock
Island has assured- the committee his
road will contribute thirty thousand dol
lars and transport all seed free. Other
roads are expected to do the same."

Engines 957 and 1019 will arrive in this

Pursuant to a call a largo and
widely located number of oUr citizens
assembled in the cofinty judgo's room
Wednesday evening, the court room
being occupied by the District court.
After some little delay S. G. Diehl was
chosen chairman of the-meeting and J.
W. Elhngham secretary. Mr. Dieh
briefly stated tho object of tho convoca
tion. C. F. Iddings was then called upon
and said that as he understood thesitua
tion the meeting was for the purpose of
planning a method to secure seed for
those who were unable to purchase; as
for those who were able to buy he knew
there would be no trouble, and that he
intended to ship in a number of cars of
grain to supply such demand just as
soon as the railroad companies, had
decided upon just what rate of freight
they would charge therefor. Had those
present paid close attention to this "tip
coming from so sagacious a business man
as the speaker it would have shut off
considerable of tho after debate which
E. W. Crane then moved that tho
county central relief committee bo
authorized to select three men to goejist
as a soliciting committee to procure such
seed grain. Mr. Iddings amended by
leaving the number optional with the
committee, after which he faded away
into the darkness of the night, his presc
ience proving to him that tho meeting
would be largely barren of practical "re
suits. R. D. Thomson, as county cora-mis.-.ioner
and ex efficio member of the
county central relief committee here
interjected the thought that if the mat
ter was to be handled by the latter
organization, it would have to take its
rniriilfir nrrlfirt anrl nnnlionnfa fnr conrl
O " 7 "i'f
would have to sign blank No. 7, one of
tno regular iorm prescribed by the state
relief commission. This was a new idea
to many present, and aroused much
opposition. After a great deal of ramb
ling desultory discussion,the motion and
amendment were decisively voted down.
A motion was then made that the
county commissioners be requested to
send ten representative citizens from
Lincoln county as a seed soliciting com
mittee, and to devise ways and means to
provide for their expenses, the commis
sioners to have Ihe charge of tho distri
bution of such collections. This was
adopted, Rev. Foulk offering a motion
which was but a repetition of a portion cf
tho former, although it was also carried.
Some of those present seemed to have
a wrong concepiion of the purpose of the
assembly, appearing to confuse it with
ihe regularly created county central
committee. This was an error which
waB readily detected by a majority of
those present. Its purpose was entirely
outside of the relief bureau, and it was
to devise means for Lincoln county to act
independently of tbo state commis-ion
in this matter, something which is being
done by every one of the drouth-stricken
counties in Nebraska. Tho fooling gen
erally obtains, and more or less justly,
that if the matter of seed collection and
distribution were left to tho red-tape
methods of the state commission, that
the season would advance so far that
many counties of Nebraska would be
able to put m but a trifling crop. The
principal champions, at tho meeting, of
leaving tho matter in the hands of the
regular county relief committee had to
acknowledge this fact, during tho dis
cussion, when they admitted that they
had repeatedly asked for the establish
ment of six sub-stations iu Lincoln
county oy tno state reiiet commission
and could not get them. Subsequent
inrormation warrants tho belief that it
is extremely doubtful if this latter orga
nization will have ny funds for tho pur
chase of seed grain, or paying the freight
thereon; as the lower house of the legis
lature has passed a bill by a vote of 51
to 4.0 appropriating 8200,000 for this pur
pose, but without the emergency clause,
which makes tho. net effective after July
1st, 1895 about time to put in a crop of
buckwheat or turnips.
Tho talk at the meeting of the people
not being able to got a low freight rate
or freo transportation upon seed grain
without it having to go through the
hands of the state' relief commission,
was the rankest rot. Let tbo legislature
adjourn without providing any further
means for tho state relief commission
with which to do business, and you will
at once see a different aspect como over
the situation. Railway managers are
but human, and it is to their interest to
get pay for a necessary service if the ex
igencies of the situation when no other
means are provided do not practically
force them to free transportation. It is
to tho local traffic to which railway
officials look for furnishing dividends, as
cut throat competition frequently com
pels them to carry what is known as
through business at a very narrow mar
gin, if not an actual loss. It is, therefore,
good business policy for tho railway
management to ship seed free into a
locality, if by so doing it will have thirty
or more times the amount to haul out.
Another reason for such a course is that
the companies, who are tho heaviest tax
payers in the county, would thus relieve
themselves of a large burden of taxation
to support needy persons. Mr. Iddings
in bis brief remarks stated that this
-could be presented to tho railways in
such a manner that they would give
their consent, and that the companies
were onlv waiting for the properly au
thorized ' persons to procure the seed,
and then have tho request made by the
people's representatives.

As the matter stands it only remains

One fact developed by the meeting,
creditable to tho county central relief

smoothly as they did last fall, yet theio
is a great deal of vim and vigor about

adverse battles of this life.
