A Subject For DIcolon,
The amolug growth of corporation
and corporate wealth in the past
twenty yean, the prospect of still
further growth and consolidation of
then Interest, the great difficulties
thrown in the way of securing proper
assessment of the property of these
corporations bo that they shall pay
their share of the burdens of govern
ment, are leading the people rapidly
in the direction of direct taxation of
corporations aa a condition of their
corjorate existence. The decision of
the United State supremo court that
a corporation it a "person" within the
meaning of the fourteenth amend
ment to the federal constitution U
Ukcly to still further attract atten
tion to the subject.
Governor Plngree of Michigan haa
Just called the legislature of that state
together In extra session to act upon
measures prepared by the governor
for Increasing the taxea upon rail
road, express, telegraph and telephone
cvmipanles. The special session met
Tuesday of thl week and began 1U
work. Governor ringrce rend his cor
mratlon taxation message to the joint
tension. It leading points were that
the fruitier of the state constitution
Intended that all taxea be baaed on
the cash value of the property; that
taxea should be levied upon public
franchise aa well an other property;
that the present system of specific
taxes upon railway earnings is unsat
isfactory and wrongr that tlie tax up
on Michigan railroads has been less
than quarter of 1 per cent upon
their own sworn valuations and leas
than one-eleventh of the percentage
iaid by other taxpayers. The governor
recommended authorization of the ap
pointment of a state board to make
equitable valuations of the property
f such corporations at their cash val
ues and to assess them at the average
rate of all the taxea. A bill ,wae intro
duced covering; all these' points,;
In Kansas Secretary of State Bush
has done considerable delving into the
laws governing corporations. He has
been enforcing some old laws that
have been dead letters for years and
thinks there is a need for some new
luws. In regard to restricting wildcat
corporation Kccrtary Bush says:
"By innking every coporation char
tered under the laws of the state, pay
one-tenth of 1 per cent for every dol
lar of capital stock, wildcat corKra
lion would be done away with entire
ly. By wildcat coriKriitioiis I mean
those 'that organize with thousands
and sometimes millions of capital
stock, when not a dollar is paid in.
Tii riTirt-MtMitatives sro out and 'trull'
the people into buying stock with the
glitter of an enormous capital which,
in reality, doesn't exist.
"Our present laws governing cor
porations really discriminates against
the home eorMrutiou in favor of the
corM. rations chartered under the law
of other states. There is no provMnu
requiring coqairntlona that a . y
bartered under the law of 1, u
to make a retort to this dexirtme.nt,
and that they are free from other re
quirement as well, 1 liclicve they
should 1 made to my a heavy fee
for authority to transact buaiueaa iu
the state."
Wisconsin derives moat of her reve
nue from the various corHnition
chartered Under her authority. Her

tsrissto Proceed in the Tlbblst Case.
The state board of transportation
has decided to make a move in the
matter of reducing freight rate In
this state. The complaint of T. II.
Tibbies against all the roads of the
state, claiming that the rates charged
were one-third higher than they
ought to be, was filed with the board
several months ago, but waa laid over
until a decision waa reached in the
maximum rate case. Now the board
has decided to go ahead with ' the
hearing and grant whatever relief is
necessary. At the meeting of the
board lost night the following reso
lution was adopted:
Whereas, Decision adverse to the
state has been rendered by the Unit
ed Btatea supreme court in what is
known as the "maximum rate case,"
Whereas, The bearing of the case

railroads of the state demanding a
reduction in all local freight rates,
haa been held awaiting a decision
in said maximum rate case, There
Hesolved, That the secretaries of
the board proceed at once with the
hearing in the said Tibbies case, for
the purpose of determining whether
the local freight rates now charged
and collected by the several rail
roads are just and reasonable, and
in case such rates are found to be
unjust and unreasonable, that the
necessary steps be taken to reduce
such rates to a just and reasonable

IIlTAA, March 8v Havana is very
gay to-day strangely so, when the
losses of Its well-to-do and the dire
poverty of its proletariat are consid
ered. ' Of course7 the presence of the
warships, with their large comple
ment of officers, has much to do with
the festivities prevailing. Then, too,
there are , centuries of customs and
scores of proverbs similar to the
familiar "to-morrow, another day.".
These tend toward inducing a some
what mercurial people to forget the
tad things while they may In singing,
dancing and all the rest that goes to
make up social rounda
But there are many serious ones,
who, if they join in the laugh, drop
Into other moods than joyous when
left alone. You can see them frown
st the absurd caricatures of Uncle
Sam and his minions, with which the
comic papers of Madrid and Havana
teem. Yon can see them sneer at the
fleets of formidable war vessels pic
tured In the magazines and illustrated
journals and labeled "part of Spstn'a
great navy." You ean hear them
laugh sardonically at the foolish rant
ings of boyish ofiloers when they sar
(as the writer actually heard one say
to-day), "We'll land our army at Key

The Independent sent a special request to the members of
the Populist State Central Committee, and leading populists of
this state, asking for a short nswer to the question: "What
immediate action ought the United States to take In relation to
Cuba and Spain."
The replies are remarkable , for their similarity. All de
mand that steps in some form be taken to bring about the inde
pendence of the island of Cuba They demand that butchery
in the name of war cease. The replies and opinions reflect
accurately the sentiment ot the masses of the American people.
The explosion and wreck of the Battleship Maine has crys
talized and brought forth the expression of public opinion that
has so long favored intervention by this nation to put an end to
the terrible war of extermination and starvation; ' President
McKinley need not fear to take
withdrawal of Spanish soldiers
will have the united and enthusiastic support of all American
citizens. Party lines would temporarily disappear. He has
but to ask and he will have at his command the lives and
property of millions of freemen
of humanity, liberty, and freedom.

with all Europe. Let our president
take the position that sll Cubans i
as well as the liberty loving people of
ail countries have the tight to tnde

' Butchery Business Should Cease,
Editor Independent:
Falls City, Neb., March 20. In reply
to your question will say that the
porper solution of this Cuban ques
tion may be fraught with momentous
results, the character and nature of
which it is almost impossible to fore
cast. War in any form and for any
cause is always a thing to be dreaded,
and avoided if possible, consistent
with honor, patriotism and humanity;
but 1 think this Cuban butchery busi
ness has already gone entirely too far.
I think our government ought, in the
tha interests of humanity, to pcrcm-l
pturily order it to cease at once though
it should lead to war with ail its fear
ful results. 0. A. Abbott, Kit-hard-
son county. ,,,

Spain, it depend largely ujion the re
sult of tlie Maine investigation, which
has not yet been made public. If the

for the destruction of the Maine then

Compel the Commission to Report.
Editor Independent:
Ulnden, Neb,, March 22, J 808, I be
lieve that the time for intervention by
this government with the affairs in
Cuba is here and tins been hern for
some time. The first action of our
u-overiiment should be with its own
commission that haa charge of the In
vestigation of the destruction of the
Maine and the murder of 250 of our
soldiers. Compel that commission to
report as it has had ample time to
make a thorough investigation which
Is all the time that should be given it
My answer would be in accordance
with the facts as we believe them to
be. That the Maine waa blown up by
external force, and that force was a
mine Calculated for her destruction.
That the murder of our soldiers waa
of that cold-blooded kind that only
comes from an enemy of the sneaking
kind, that will not meet you face to
face but will stab you in the back, lie-
llevlng these to be the fact our gov
ernment should at once demand that
the Sjainlsh evacuate Cuba ami the
Cuban given the right of self-govern
ment or else annexed to the United
States, at least they should bo under
the protection of this government.
In regard to the destruction of tbe
battleship Maine, I do not believe in
Icuvlmr our troubles with Kualn to
arbitration by neutral governments,
That there has been ample cause for
this government to declare war with
Spain I am thoroughly convinced. 1
am omsmed to accentlnff a money con
slrteration for the lives of ohr mnr
dered soldiers, but In esse we could
tret nothlnir else but a reparation. It
should be large and go to tho families
of the murdered soldiers. This Is, I
believe, the only manly course for our
government to pursue, ' and u tins
meoiw' war, let it come.J, L. Grand-

Indemnity and Freedom.
Editor Independents
Stanton. Neb,, March 22, If the re-
iort of the (investigation shows that
the Maine wits destroyed by outside
agencies, and not an accident, then the
United States should demand an in

If Soaln should refuse such request
then this government should proceed
to enforce the demand. E. 8. Carrier,

Tb Report of tbe Board of Inquiry
Will be Made Pnblio
Ibis Week.
Oubon Patriots Demand, Complete
Belease Prom Spanish
Mo General LegUlstlon Bxpeeted.
The situation in regard to Cuban In
dependence remains unchanged, The
board of Inquiry have been investigat
ing the cause of the destruction of tbe
battleship Maine, It is generally be
lieved that the board bus computed
Its labor and that the report is on it
way to Washington. It has been ex
pected every day since fast Monday
It will be delivered to President Mo
Kfnley, lie will examine it carefully
and transmit a copy of it to tbe Span
ish government, together with 'de
mands for Indemnity or otherwise as
the president may deem best. , He will
also trransmit a copy to congress in
relation to the matter. The cabinet
will hold a special meeting to consider
the reiwrt as soon as it arrives. In tbe
meantime army and navy departmental
are actively preparing for war, A bill
reorganizing and enlarging the army
has been presented to congress, and
several battleship have been pur
chased or prices agreed upon, from
the 150,000,000 appropriation mode a
few days ago. All the seagoing ?eseela
belonging to the United State that
need it are being repaired and put in
good condition. Many large contracts
for the manufacture of gun and amu
nltfon have been made and many of
the factories are running night and
day in order to fill their contracts in
the specified time. The war depart
ment is considering tbe necessity of
securing a coaling station in the vicin
ity of the West Indies from which to
supply United States battleships in
case of war. Such a station could
probably be secured by purchase from
some friendly foreign power. After
war was declared it would Ins impossi- ,
ble to secure such a station as such a
proceeding would be In conflict with
tbe principle of International law.
Spain is also preparing for war. II er
fleet is enroute for Cuba at tbe present
time, and Spanish officials have been
seeking a loan for several weeks, ' floe
far they have' been unable to' ind a
market for their bonds, i'Tbey hare
also been negotiating for tbe purchase
of several large battleships, among1
them the O'lliggins, the great battle
ship belonging to Chile. Chilean offi
cials have announced, however, that if
the U'Ulgglns Is for sale It will be sold
to the United States, aud not to Spain.
Tbe United States pays "spot cash"
and is regarded aa a very desirable
customer. With $50,000,000 cash in hi
inside pocket and a congress ready to
appropriate $500,000,000 more If neces
sary, Uncle Ham can go into the mark
eta and buy almost anything that i
for sale.
The report of the board of inquiry
will bring the matters to a decision in
congress, with three-fourths of tne
American people clamoring for the In
dependence of Cuba, congress will be
compelled to take some decisive ac
tion. If the report finds that the des
truction of the Mulne waa accidental
ami that the Spanish government is
not resonsible for its loss, congress
will lie forced by public sentiment to
take a broader view of the situation
and recognize the Cubans as belliger
ents, and demand the cessation of the
Inhuman and brutal war and the with
drawal of the Hpanlsh soldiers.
Ilia Cuban patriots have refused to
accept any plun of autonomy front
bi'iiin, and the United Htates would
not bo a party to a plan for autonomy
aud leave Hpuln In control of the is
lam I. Very little legislation will be
considered until the Cubau quesilou
Is disMsed of.
