Eiitou Alliance: Each proposition
i-s a power in itself, and in its com
bination strong enough to move the
world. A few years ago being con
vinced that the permanent good of the
country demanded that the people
should own and run its railways, it was
the most natural thing in life to advance
the idea to my neighbor, Did he lis
ten to it? Yes, in a peculiar way, but
any one could read in his looks, "I
shall have to hear what this tiresome
old crank has to say, but I do hope he
will cut it short."
But there is a most gratifying change
in the public mind of to-day. The sen
timent has taken root. Men of brains
are heartily engaged in its support, and
it is fairly before the American people
as the political issue of the . day. That
it will move onward steadily and irre
sistibly to ultimate success, I have no
doubts or fears.
Now let me suppose we have already
owned and controlled our Railroad sys
tem, and by way of experiment we
should establish a uniform freight rate
at so much per ton whether its destina
tion was twenty miles or three thous
and, and it was necessary in order to do
this to raise the price pir ton on the
short distance and lower the price on
the long distance until the one equal
ized the other? Would it work oppres
sively to those engaged in transporta
tion? I should suppose not. The higher
price on the short distance would com
pensate them for the lower rate on the
long distance. Now what effect would
this have upon the trade of the country?
1 should say it would lead to a direct
deal between the producer and the con
sumer. For example, Nebraska has
more corn than lumber. Maine on the
contrary has more lumber than corn.
j mm... -t..: 1. i-,.
.ijitr iUauiu iuuii semis 10 somu unit;
station in Nebraska for a car load of
corn, and he gets it at farmers' prices.
The Nebraska man sends to Maine for
his car load of lumber and gets it at
lumberman's prices, and when they
compare notes each find that they have
saved a few dollars by the deal, and
adopt the plan for future use. Where
now would be the great centers of
tirade? I answer anywhere and every
where in the country where anything
was produced for sale, or anywhere
that there was a demand for that pro
duct, The great centers as they now
-it, which buy up the produce of the
land and "ship it and reship it, ele
vate it ami re-elevate it, gamble over it,
corner it, and manipulated in all the
the various way s the Prince of Darkness
their patron Saint and teacher may sug
gest, would cease to exist. No one
would touch the products they had add
ed so many needless expenses to. The
great central market (that used to be)
would buy what they wanted for home
consumption and no more. The direct
influence of this would be to diffuse the
gains of trade equally over the length
and breadth of our country, (and let me
add just where it belongs.) It would put
:t check upon the centralization of capi
ital. There would not as at the present
time, l)e millionaires springing up like
mushrooms in a single night. But the
entire mass would reap the fruits of
their industry, and contentment and
prosperity would once more roll over
our land. Instead of combinations to
defraud our fellow-men we should be
building up and strengthening and .per
fecting a. combination- that would be a
mutual benefit to every honest individ
ual in the country a living monument
to mark one more triumph of right over
wrong in the nineteenth century and
the day would be drawing near when
men could say with all sincerity they
knew no north, no south, east or west,
except to draw each other together in
the bonds of a common interest. I
trust that day is near at hand.
Our national convention to be hidden
in Dec. at St. Louis, will usher in the
dawn. There the two great sections of
country will meet in brotherly council.
Able men will be there to urge these
three great propositions before the peo
ple of the nation, and methinks I can
hear one sturdy voice among them say
ing: The interstate commerce law has
been furnished us as a, crutch to follow
delinquent railroads long enough. We
are sound of limb, we have every hon
est man in the country for support, and
we will quietly but very firmly lay
hands on this refractory public servant
and set him honestly to work for every
man, woman and child on this broad
continent. And every old road-bed in
the country would hum with, .a merry
click, "I am running for Uncle Sam,
and I am running for actually what I
.am worth." c. H. King,

CROPS AND MORTGAGES.
Wakneiwville, Neb., Nov, 12 1880.
Editor Alliance-. Why don't you
insist on greater accuracy in estimates
of farm produce. It is nothing uauusal
to receive reports from agricultural de
partment of an increased area and
grain looking well before it is sown,
when cold and stormy weather follows
the beginning of seeding. The increased
area is a fraud. The decrease in the older
portion of the states by land sown to pas
ture, meadow, and abandoned is equal
to the amount brought under cultiva
tion in the newer states. The idea that
a large crop will bring good times seems
to cling to minds of editors and govern
ment officers like the superstitious of
the past. A large crop put into market
at a loss must bring hardships upon the
raisers. But a large estimate put on an
average crop by the government is a?
bad as highway robbery. The govern
ment is doing all it can to break down
its main stay, by unequal protection, by
false reports, and general disregard for
the good of its people.
Say. to John Jenkins, of the state bu
reau of 'statistics, that I know of land as
sessed at one fourth of the amount of
the mortgage on it. If he will com
mence in Pierce Co. and go westward
he well find hundreds of farms aband
oned to the holders of eastern mort
gages. Under the present laws agricul
ture is unprofitable from Maine to Col
orado. Farmers are uniting for pro
tection. We want facts, not lying es
timates. J. J. BLINKINS.

AFTER YEARS OF LOSS FROM
R. R. DISCRIMINATION, OVER
CHARGES & SHORTAGES.
HE CLAIMS $145,000.
Messrs. G. M. Lambertson, J. II.
Wbitmore and J. P. Maule, as attor
neys for Thomas W. Lowery, the well
known grain dealer, completed to-day
the draft of a petition, which was filed
this afternoon in district court, wherein
that gentleman seeks to recover
from the Chicago, Burlington &
Quincy railroad company damages by
discrimination against him in rates, by
failure and refusal to supply cars for
his use, by failure to transport prompt
ly for him, by overcharges on rates and
by shortages on grain shiptments. The
amount claimed is $145,000. The peti
tion, exlusive of numerous exhibits,
covers fifty-six pa.ges of type written
legal cap and comprises fifty-three sep
arate and distinct accounts.
It begins by showing the business of
the defendants a common carrier, op
erating lines between Chicago and Den
ver, and shows further that the plaintiff
has lived in Lancaster county for
eighteen years, during which time he
has been in the grain business, opera
ting grain stations at numerous points
in the state; that during the time which
complaint is made he has been doing
business continuously with the defend
ant and has maintained, with it an open
and running account for the shipment
of " flour, corn, wheat and grain; that
during that time he has operated grain
elevators and warehouses at Firth,
Hickman, Roca, Pleasant Dale, Seward,
Germantown; Tamora, Staplehurst,
Bellwood. Western, Ong, Cheney,Res
publican City, Alma. Orleans, Oxford,
Saltillo, Utica, Lincoln and other points
on defendant's lines of 'road; that he
has been engaged, and is now engaged,
almost continuously, in shipping wheat,
corn and other grain to Chicago,- St.
Louis, Baltimore, Boston, Philadelphia,
Cincinnati, New York and various
other points in the Uniteo States over
the lines and connections of the defend
ant, pursuant to tariffs, rates and
charges prepared, demanded and exact
ed by the defendant.
He avers that defendant has been
guilty of unjust discrimination towards
him in respect to rates in all of the
shipments set forth in his petition; that
it gave other shippers better rates from
the same points and better advantages
and conveniences with respect to cars,
weights and promptness in shipment
than were ' given him; that it is now
discriminating against him by allowing
other persons and corporations a much
lower rate for carrying grain, in allow
ing them the privilege of milling grain
ill transit, in diverting it from its na
tural and ostensible destination and
giving them the benefit ol a. through
Plaintiff alleges that said shipments
made by defendant on which higher
rates were charged were made ' under

He alleges that, tor reasons unknown
to him, said railroad company has given
orders to its agents not to receive ship-
ments to ana ior mm, ana nas refused
from time to time to furnish cars for
him for the shipment of grain, although
shipments were received and cars were
f urnished to others under precisely sim
ilar circumstances and conditions. He
avers that by reason of this unjust dis
crimination against him and prefer
ence extended to others his large and
extensive business as a shipper over
said line has been seriously threatened,
injured and crippled to his damage in
the sum of $25,000.
He alleges that during the past five
years he has been engaged in shippina
grain trom Staplehurst, on the line of
defendant s road to Chicago, St Louis,
Memphis, New York, Baltimore, Bos
ton; Philadelphia and other points in
the United States; that defendant re
ceived from him the grain shipped from
that town and agreed to carry and trans
port the same by continuous passage
over its line of road and Uscoanections
to the points above named and to the
destination to which it was transported,
for and on account of which it was
chargeable with and assumed all the
liabilities, duties and responsibilties of
common carriers; that for the service
rendered in the transportation, car

perty from the point of shipment to

tion the defendant lawfully demanded,

The annual convention met in Chi
cago, having an attendance of 463. It
is described as a gathering immense in
size, noble in objects; eloquent in
speech; wise in methods; sublime in en

nent mottoes displayed read: "No sec
tionalism in politics; no sex in citizen
ship; no sectarianism in religion; but,
all for God and home and native land."

Speaking of the value of the ethical
culture in public schools we have this
from Rev. Geo. P. Hays.
"The absurdity of our common-school
course of study can scarcely be over
stated. Wo tax everybody for public
education to make the children moral
citizens, and the one thing, which is not
taught by law is morals. A high school
boy breaks into a grocery store and
steals a ham, and straightway we send
him to the penitentiary, but he . was
never taught in school what an oath
was, or a crime, or a court, or a jail, or
a penitentiary, or anything by which or
for which he is punished by a life-long
disgrace. With my low estimate of
masculine activity as compared with
feminine aggressiveness you may be
sure 1 am glad the W. C. 1 U. is push
ing ethical teaching in publication."
We would say, by all means, let mor
als be taught in the public schools, but
if it be true that "The stream cannot
rise higher than the fountain" how can
we expect schools supported by saloon
money to teach other than saloon morals.
It is a matter of fact that such sup
port does lower the tone of the schools,
but thanks to the moral force of teach
ers who cannot be corrupted, we are
not yet sunk to the saloon lSvel. Let
us move forward to free our school from
such a baleful influence. Can we edu
cate the consciences of our youth by
the very money that is used to bribe the
consciences of their fathers? No, it is
the oft repeated attempt to educate by
precept, in principles we contradict in
practice, and must result in failure.
The state of Nebraska teaches the
evil of the use of alcohol to pay for- that
teaching. This is conscience-culture
with a vengence: The first step in
teaching the distinction between right
and wrong would well be the abolish
ing of this inconsistency.
Remember the Sabbath to keep it
The great number of fatal accidents
occuring on Sunday has often been spo
ken of by persons writing on the sub
ject. They have shown that, without
any assignable cause, the number of acr
cidents occuring on Sunday is much
greater than any other day of the week.
Making all due allowance for the ex
emption from labor and the leisure en
joyed on this day by persons in the low
er walks of life, and the disposition to
strong drink by men not at .work, we
have a singular fact to account for,
because statistics show that accidental
death on Sunday is very largely in ex
cess of casualities on any,other day of
the week. We may not be able to build
a theory upon this fact alone, and we
would not press it beyond a legitimate
use. If we should find that on Friday
more persons were drowned than on any
other day of the week, and could find
no plausible explanation of it, we should
think it strange. So bf Sunday. There
are less persons exposed to accidental
death on that day than on any other,
and yet the deaths are'more numerous.
Even the secular press has its atten
tion called to the fact, which it states,
but cannot explain, only on the vagae
ground of coincidence. The Boston
Globe, a few weeks ago, had this par
The record of last Sunday's drowning
accidents in New England is long
enough to make superstitious people
wonder if there is a pecular fatality at
tending Sunday swimming and boating.

man of 25 years drowned while out boat
ing. Two youug men in Pembroke,
while engaged in the same amusement,
met the same fate. A saloon-keeper of
Providence was drowned while bathing.
A young man of Arlington, Mass.,
although a good swimmer, suddenly
sank without any known cause, and
never came to the surface again. At
Woburn two young women were
drowned by the upsetting of a sailboat.
At Biddeford another sailboat cap
sized and another woman met her death.
In Worcester a young laborer fell from
a boat and was drowned. All these
drownings occured on a single Sunday,
and it is probable that the list here is
far from complete. It is suggestive to
say the least.
THE DRAG AT THE WHEELS.
BY JULIA II. THAYER.
"It's all right for women to have their
say in our public school affairs they
ought to and to take part in the tem
perance cause; but I hope I shall never
live to see woman's suffrage," and pretty
little Mrs.Simpkins bit off her embroid
ery silk almost savagely as she spoke,
and began the next flower on the wrong
side of her work.
"I did not know before that you
craved an early death,"I replied, but my
light remark was unheeded.
"No, I never want to see women vote,"
"Why not?" I asked.
She looked up with a somewhat puz
zled air. Evidently she was not used to
having her opinions questioned.
"Why not?" I insisted, following up
"Oh, I don't know," was the reply in
a less confident tone, and with a visible
diminution of interest.
But I was not to be put off so easily,
and I still waited ,for her to explain
"Why, it seems to me well, don't
vou think yourself that it would make
women less womanly?" r
"Why should it?" I inquired. "Come,
if you have such convictions you should
have reasons for them..'
"Now don't you really think it would
make women bold to go to the polls?"
"Is it any bolder than for them todo
a hundred other things that seem all
right to us because they are the fashion"
I returned, "such as riding the tricycle
in the public park, for instance as I
saw you doing last Saturday." I laughed
with telling effect.
"Oh do let me alone. Who wants to
talk politics, anyway? See here, isn't
this a lovely new pattern for handker
chief corners? Shan't I teach it to you?"
and cunning Mrs. Simpkins slipped
thus gracefully out of the tangle into
which she had unwittingly been en
ticed, and never got in again during all
that long afternoon.
Ah, this poor struggling world of ours
has many a Mrs. Simpkins holding back
the car of progress with just such unin
telligent, dogged force as my companion
displayed. Such a woman entertains,
and never fails to express, decided
views upon the question of the day, sel
dom stopping, however, to assign rea
sons for their existence. She is always
ready to chatter about what is going on,
but when it comes to tiiinkino that
is too hard work; she isn't used to it.
The weakest ones among us dare not
deny the need of radical reform in the

valence of such feminine logic! The

they know not what they do. But no

Crops and Freight Rates.
The abundant crops 'With which Ne
braska farmers J were favored the past
season have not proven an unmixed
blessing. Granaries groaning with a
oounieous narvesi wan iu am a, paying
market. Prices are so low that it does
not pay to ship from a majority of towns
in the state, and even from the towns
on the Missouri river the margin of pro
fit is so small, after freight rates are
paid, that tfiere is scarcely enough left
to compensate the farmer for his labor,
much less pay a per cent on his invest
ment. Corn, oats and potatoes are a drug in
the market. A farmer in Holt county,
with one hundred and sixty acres of po
tatoes, negotiated for. their sale in
Omaha, where the price ranges from
twenty-five to twenty-seven cents a
bushel, but found that he could not . de
liver and make -enough to pay for the
labor of digging. A margin of live,
cents a bushel would have satisfied him,
but the railroad rates virtually absorbed
the entire proceeds. As a consequence
the tubers are left to rot in the ground.
There are hundreds of similar instances.
The prices for corn and oats in small
towns are equally demoralizing and
discouraging. The more wealthy farm
ers are not seriously affected, having
the means to turn their crops into . beef
and pork, or store them for future deli
very. But the bulk of Nebraska farm
ers are not in condition to hold their
crops nor have available means to secure
feeding stock. They are as a rule
handicapped with pressing debts and
depend on prompt marketing of their
crops to meet their obligations. Ex
tension of time can be had, and ready
money secured to hold the crop for bet
ter prices. This method would only in
crease their troubles and place them at
the mercy of the two per cent sharks
who thrive on the misfortunes of others.
Even this risk might be taken if the out
look warranted an advance. There arc
no indications of an improved market,
therefore the farmer who borrows
money to hold his crop over winter in
creases his ' losses to the extent of the
The only source of relief is a radical
reduction of railroad rates. The rates
now charged from interior stations are
virtually prohibitory. They are detri
mental alike to the railroads and the
farmers.- If the latter cannot afford to
ship at the present market price the
railroads suffer equally. Their cars are
kept idle and traffic reduced, while the
cost of operation and maintenance does
not decrease in proportion. By a re
duction of tariff the railroads will in
crease their receipts and enable farmers
to realize at least cost price on their
To maintain the present rates on ce
reals is detrimental to the best interests
of the state, and an injury to the state j
is an injury to the railroads. Irene rous
concessions to the producers will accele
rate the movement of the crops, increase
the circulating medium, and vitalize ev
ery department of business from the vil
lage merchant to the metropolitan job
ber. What the railroads would lose by a
reduction of grain rates will be made up
by increased ''buiness in other lines.
