THE NEBRASKA INDEPENDENT.
Companies Will Ttj tm Show They are
Paying Their Share
Nebraska railroads are starting out
on a campaign of education in ilio
matter of railroad taxation. On ac
count of charges frequently made that
the railroads were not paying their
just share of taxes, representatives of
the various lines held a meeting t
devise ways of educating the people
to believe differently. The old con
servatives favored a plan of fighting
out in the courts if necessary, and in
referring to the public in choice W. K.
Vanderbilt language. But the youngor
element favored taking the public in
to the confidence of the railroads and
placing before everyone facts and fig
ures of railroad taxation with explan
ations, and prevailed.
Tax Commissioners Pollard of the
Burlington, Scrlbner of the Union Pa
cific and Whitney of the Elkhorn
were a committee to prepare the ma
terial, and Advertising Agent Darlow
of the Union Pacific and Young of the
Burlington to arrange for the publica
tion in the leading papers of the stato
a series of articles to run a period of
about sixteen weeks. The aim is to
seek to show the public that the rail
roads have not only already done their
share as taxpayers, but in many in
stances have borne the larger share of
the burden. Omaha World-Herald.
The second installment of this series
of "educational" work appeared in the
Sunday Bee and Sunday State Jour
nal, but the "educators" seem to think
the World-Herald and The Indepen
dent are not to be counted in with
the "leading papers of the state," in
asmuch as the paid advertisement did
-not appear in the Sunday World-Herald,
and no arrangements have been
made with The Independent for pub
lication. Our offer in another column
The second lesson is substantially a
rearrangement of the figures present
ed by The Independent in its issue of
May, 1900, and presents nothing new
to Independent readers. It shows that
the railroads paid 15.4 per cent of the
taxes in 1900, a concise summary be
ing: Per cent.
Farm and stock interests paid... 55. 2
City, town and village int. paid.. 29.4
Railroads paid 15.4
The population of Nebraska in 1900
(1,058.910) is shown to be:
Rural 63.8 per cent.
Urban 36.2 per cent.
Total 100. percent.
All of which proves nothing in par
ticular, except the facts shown. Sup
pose the railroads do pay 15.4 per cent
of the taxes. If they are permitted tc
char- -? up taxes as operating expenses,
and by such a system of accounting
nnd bookkeeping to make a showin?
of net earnings only after the taxes
are deducted, why may not they pav
directly all the taxes and recoup them
selves by raising freight rates? In
directly all other interests would have
to pay the taxes, but after the fashioa
if tariff duties on imports. If our
federal government is to be maintained
by indirect taxation, why not support
the st'tte government In a like man
ner? The importer counts the tariff
duty as "operating expense" and his
"net earnings" are shown after do
ducting from the selling price, the or
iginal cost plus the duty. Acording
ly. he is not taxed at all but the con
Applying the same principle to rail
road accounting, if taxes are to be
counted as operating expense, and if
the railroads are entitled to charge
for services so that a fair return may
be paid on the capital invested, 'A.
ought to be feasible to make them pay
all the state taxes and wholly save
themselves harmless by making rates
hih enough to cover the increased
"operating expense." Apparently they
would pay all the taxes in reality
they would pay none. That ought to
suit the most earnest railroad tax
Valued as scrap-heaps, the railroads
of Nebraska are certainly assessed
high enough. All their tangible prop
erty, valued according to usual meth
ods, is probably not worth more than
21 millions, if the improved farms ot
Nebraska are worth only 61 millions
But suppose we count "net earnings"
for the owners of the farm lands on
the same basis as railroad net earn
ings are computed what then? Al
low the farmer a reasonable salary as
a "captain of industry;" pay his wifa
and sons and daughters for their la
bor; count his taxes as operating ex
nse. Then take the 1902 assessment
pt enough improved farms to make
vp the total of $6,128,104 (the as
sessed valuation of the Union Pacific)
and ascertain if their owners can sho"
net earnings in 1901 to the amount o
$1,807,288 (the net earnings of the Un
ion Pacific for that year). If so, thei
that road is assessed high enough;
It won't do to show that land taxfd
on a basis of $3.47 an acre (the aver
age for improved lands in 1900), pro
duced 50 bushels of 25-cent corn to
the acre, and say that the net earn
ings were $12.50 an acre. The farmer
is entitled to his salary as a "captain
of industry" as well as his return on
the capital invested. Calculated cn
-"the same basis as railroad account
ing, Nebraska farm lands yield ver'y
small net earnings. A good portion of
the time Nebraska farmers are pros
perous, but it is a mistake to suppose
that the net returns exceed 2 per cent.
The laborer is worthy of his hire, and
the Nebraska farmer is just as much
entitled to a good salary out of his
farm products as is a railroad stock
Talk "turkey", part of the time for
the farmer, Messrs. Railroad Tax
Commissioners; figure net earnings
for him on the same basis as you Jo
for your roads; compile statistics
along this line, and if then the farm
and stock interests net earnigs are to
rnllrnarl net earnings in thft rntin of
552 to 154, then your case is won.

The republican state convention
Wednesday renominated all the pres
ent state officers except governor and
treasurer. This .will be regarded by
Mr. Rosewater as a victory for him
self, he having driven Governor Sav
age and Treasurer Stuefer out of the
Right from the start It was noticea
ble that the Elkhorn-Union Pacific
combination back of Robertson, and
the Burlington forces behind Dins
more, were in for a sham protracted
struggle. Early in the day It was said
that Thompson and Rosewater had
combined to make Speaker Sears the
nominee, but after the third ballot
that gentleman was practically out of
The night before the convention,
sentiment seemed to point to Dinsmore
of Clay as the man whom the Bur
lington was pushing to the front, al
though the expression was frequently
heard, "Well, I don't know; you see,
Mickey is neutral ground and it may
go to him." "Neutral ground" had
reference simply to the railroads.
Mickey is regarded as a Union Pacific
man, located in what is really Bur
lington territory. He is the man who
was mentioned a week or so ago by a
prominent railroad man at the Lin
dell hotel as the one "we have picked
John H. Mickey is a resident of
Osceola, Polk county. He Is described
by the State Journal as a "farmer,
banker, old soldier and pioneer." By
a curious co-incidence he is president
of the same bank that Governor Nance
was president of when he was nomi
nated for governor; but Mr. Mickey
was nominated on the thirteenth bal
lot and that undoubtedly means that
the parallel will go no further.
Rosey had his way in a great part.
He had previously driven Governor
Savage from the field because of the
Bartley pardon yet Governor Savage
stands for an increase In railroad as
sessments, something the Bee pretends
to champion. Just prior to the con
vention Treasurer Stuefer withdrew,
"in the interests of harmony," but
reallyabecause of the Bee's onslaught
Treasurer Stuefer stands exactly on
the same ground as does Auditor Wes
ton on the railroad assessment yet
Rosewater made fish of one and flesh
of the other.
Norris Brown "sounded the key
note" in his speech as temporary
chairman. As a key-note it was rath
er squeaky. He didn't hesitate to re
peat the republican lie, told so often
that some really believe it, that the
present administration has conducted
the state institutions a year and have
a "surplus" left of $87,231.61. Any on.-?
at all conversant with the matter
knows that these figures are based on
calling eleven months' expenditures
the expenditures for a "year." It is
also well known that Mr. Brown's fig
ures do not include the expenditures
at the penitentiary, where the repub
lican warden used up the $35,000 main
tenance appropriation in 10 months,
and will have about $49,000 deficiency
by the time the next legislature act3:
that they do not include the Kearney
Industrial school, where Secretary
Mallalieu used about $60,000 in one
year of a $97,000 appropriation in
tended for two' years. Brown makes
an excellent speech of the "joshing"
kind, but his statements of fact can
not be relied upon.
The platform is exactly what one
could expect from a republican con
vention dominated by the railroads.
After all of Rosewater's howling, the
taxation plank is simply a lot of glit
tering generalities quite acceptable to
George W. Holdrege and his coadju
tors. The convention indorsed Roose
velt's attitude on the Cuban reciproc
ity matter and thereby threw the har
poon into Senators Millard and Diet
rich. H. C. Lindsay was again made
chairman of the state committee.

Weber For Congress
In view of Congressman Stark's let
ter of declination, a number of Saun
ders county people have suggested the
name of Hon. B. R. B. Weber as a
man eminently fitted to make the race.
Mr. Weber haa been an active pop
ulist worker for a good many years,
and his record is one of which he and
his friends may well be proud. He
was secretary of the populist stato
committee , in the campaign of . 1896
and the next year was appointed by
Governor Holcomb as superintendent
of the state industrial school for girls
at Geneva, a position he retained un
til the close of Governor Poynter's ad
ministration. His record there ha.-
never been equalled,' not only for ex
cellent results in caring for the state's
wards, but also In the matter of eco
nomy in expenditures, Mr. Weber is
an up-to-date, progressive farmer and
would be an ideal representative for
the Fourth district, 'in which the farm
ing element predominates." Those who
know him are well acquainted with
his energetic, pushing temperament.
He is a man who likes to do things.
He cannot be idle. As the old saying
goes, "there is not a lazy bone in his
body." If Mr. Stark's declination is
absolute, the Fourth district cannot
find a better man than Weber. But

the district, and the closeness of th-i

spired the company to attempt something higher. The new High

Visit Yellowstone Park
In 1902 season runs to September
15. This park is, beyond argument,
the finest pleasure ground In the
world, as congress intended it should
New hotels have been built and the
government has been constructing new
roads and greatly improving old ones,
so that tourists can visit' the park
with more comfort than ever before.
There is a gradual increase of visitors
to the park from year to year, and
one can remain as long as one pleases.
The hotel rates are $4.00 per day
for seven days, $3.00 per day after
that time, and stopovers are allowed
without increased charge for trans
portation. The hotels and service ar
first class in every particular and modernsteam-heated,
etc. In appointments.
The geysers never were playing bet
ter, the trout fishing never was finer,
and the opportunities for genuine
pleasure and profit in sight seeing
were never greater than they are in
1902. The Northern Pacific runs its
trains direct to the park boundary
near Mammoth Hot Springs, the cap
ital of the park.
For six cents I will send our "Won
derland 1902'? which has a chapter on
the park; for 25 cents I will send "Yel
lowstone National Park," an illus
trated and descriptive book relating
entirely to the park; for 50 cents I
will send "Wild Flowers from Yel
lowstone," "a thing of beauty and a
joy forever." CHAS. S. FEE.
