opinion that many people immensely
exaggerate the vaiue of alcohol as an
article of diet, and since no class of
men see so much of its effects, and
possess such power to restrain its
abuse, as membeis of their own pro

Being n!s lirmly convinced that the

The agricultural interests of Ne
braska were never more prosperous
than at the present time. Among the
most serviceable agents in the adver
tisement ot our state have been ur
agricultural and horticultural socie
ties. All reasonable aid that you
may see lit to extend them will bring
a certain satisfactory return.

and growth iu agriculture that is in

tions at our own state 'and couuty
fairs during the past year were the
best ever had iu the state. A steady
adherence to grain raising alone tends
to impoverish the soil. That the far
mers of our state will find it to their
advantage to diversify there can be
but little if any doubt, aud we have
reason for congratulation in the fact
that our larmers are devoting more
aud more attention to the growth
and brrcdiug of stock, and less to the
growth of grain, that must at much
expense be transported to a distant
market. Agriculture is at the present
time, aud will be for years to come, if
not always, I he leading interest of

receive at your hands such considera

of the subject demands.

There is an evil of considerable mag.
nitude which of late years has pre
vailed iu many localities of our state
to the great injury of large numbers
of our people. 1 refer particularly to
tli sale of fraudulent patent rights
and of stock in ficticious or pretend d
corporations, by which unsuspecting
persons, through various devices,
have been induced to make worthless
purchases, and give iu payment their
negotable promissory note, which, by
a transfer to innoceut holders, they
were finally compelled to pay
There seems to be a well fouuded
djubl in the minds of many whether,
iu the present condition of our critn
inal law, such fraudulent practices
can be reached and punished, which
probably accounts fer the fact that
such sales are made so frequently, ami
with seeming immuuity from punish
ment. I would, therefore, respectfully
suggest the propriety of incorporat
ing into the law, by amendment or
otherwise, a suitable provisiou rm
etiying this defect.
The custom on the part of railroad
corporations of granting passes to
state ollicials and members of the leg
islature is one of long standing, and I
might say ot almost universal practice.
While I do not beliore that passes
have beu given or intended in th
nature ot a bribe, or for the purpos or
with the expectation ot improperly
influencing the action of individuals,
or that they have been considered by
those who may have taken und used
theiu as placing them under auy obli
gatious, direct or indirect, the fact
yet remains that a p is represents
value aud its acceptance is for that
reason of donbtful propriety. To the
end that representatives of the people
may be enabled to avoid even th
bare suspicion of hat jug been improp
erly influenced iu their action or in
the faithful discharge of their public
duties, it is recommended that a law
be enacted prohibiting the granting
of passes to officers of the exocutivo
department of the state, members of
the legislature, aud to any of the class
of officials who, by reason of their
public position, may have it within
their power cither to confer or with
hold favors or benefits to railroad
