Farmers Right and the Railroad".
Being the owner of a farm in Wayne
county Netrvka, on which was raised
thi past year three car loads of corn,
and bating bo stock there to feed the
corn to; and having a farm la thli place
en which little corn was raised, and
stock on It to which I deird to feed
train, I determined to bring one car at
Vast of my corn here for my own use.
And thereupon I directed my bob to
shell out acd resd to me six or seven
hundred bushels of corn. He got it
shelled in gocd shape and It was a food
quality aid dry. He then went to Win
aide, and asked the station agent of the
Chicago, St Paul, Minneapolis & "a""
ha Railway Co., for a car in which to
load the corn, The agent then asked
if the corn was in sight. He was told
that the corn was shelled, and In a bin
at the farm ready to ship as soon .as a
tar was furnished. The agent said that
would not do, that it must be at the
railroad track ready to load before he
oo aid order a car. And absolutely re
fused to furnish a car, and exhibited a
letter from the superintendent of the
road, showing that the agent was follow
ing the Instructions- of the superinten
dent la this matter.
I am informed that other farmers on
the line of this road have been treated
the same way. To require that farmers
shall bring up twelve or fourteen loads
of grain in front of the station, and
there keep them until a car is ordered,
and arrives, is nothing more nor less
than an absolute refusal to transport
grain for farmers. These conditions are
a subterfuge too glaring to deceive
vena child. Thereupon I was com
pelled to buy a load of corn at Wayne
of a dealer, pay twenty cents a bushel
for It, when the market price on the
tame day In the ma place was eight
teen cents. In other words I was com
pelled to pay the dealers two cents a
bushel one-ninth part the value of my
corn for the privilege of transporting
eorn over the road.
Farmers of Nebraska, how long do
you propose to submit to such contemp
tible meanness on the part of railroad
This railroad' company received Its
franchise to be a oerporatlon the
special and extraordinary privilege of
entering upon farmers' land without
ISielr permission or consent, survey and
-'' lay out ita road; to compel them to sell
It as much land as it needed for the
oastruction and operation of its road;
to run across public highways, sub
jecting the people who travel the high
ways to dangers and delay; suDjecuDg
them to dangers by Ires scattered by
ita looomotives, and manv other incon
veniences not necessary to mention; and
these privileges were granted It, for
the reason that the road was to be
made, used and operated for the benefit
and convenience of the public, the
whole publlo and not any chosen part
of the oeoDle.
This company received from the state
these Drlvlleires upon the condition and
ander the obligation, legal and moral to
construct a safe road, to furnish cars,
motive power and men sufficient to
transport all passengers, and all freight
which the publlo, and the people de

Potter In his work on corporations,
speaking of railroads, says, "they are
open for the publlo use, without dla
crimination." In another place speak
intr of railroad corporations he says
"In their very nature and constitution

resoeots public agents, and the omse
quence is they must In the exercise of
their calling, observe to all men a per
This doctrine has time and time again
keen announced by courts of last resort.
Each and every farmer has the right
to tr&uisort his strain over the road.
And the railroad company is under a
legal and moral obligation to furnish
each and every farmer with cars, and
to transport his grain and other pro
duets. It is no excuse for the oo jo pan 7
to say it has not a sufficient number of
cars. For one of the conditions upon
which It obtained existence, was that
It would furnish cars, and not to do so
laa violation of Its duty, and when
this corporation refuses to furnish
fanners cart, and to transport their
grain, It is guilty of a misuse of its cor

the faa', thvte is ao r why the
court should not decree its franchise
forfeited, an Its ouster of the right to
be a corporation, or operate its railroad
unlets the court should exercUe a dis
cretion unwarranted by the circum
stances. But under present legislation the
state will not commence and prosecute
the necessary proceedings; but will
leave the trouble and expense of such
proceedings to the Individual whose
rights have been Invaded. And few in
dividuals have enough at stake to
authorise them to measure arms with
one of these corporatloas.
The policy ef all railroad companies
la to fight every thing, believing that
by so doing they will so intimidate
many of those having claims against
tbem, that they will make no effort! to
enforce their claims. They charge all
costs arising out of the needless litiga
tion to expenses. And when laws are
proposed, regulating their compensa
tion for carrying passengers and freight
they insist that their expenses shall be
taken into account in determining the
amount they shall be permitted to
charge, thereby subjecting the public to
the payment of costs on both sides of all
Private individuals are therefore not
competent to cope in litigation with
these corporat.on8, and should not be
required to in matters relating to the
misuse of corporate franchises.
These corporations are the creatures
of the sovereign power of the state.
They are children of the states beget
ting; and when ltscontemptlble,knavl8h
brats need chastisement the state
should administer it, and not throw the
burden on individuals.
If a tbiet steals a hone, or breaks in
to a house and steals goods, or a swind-
er under false pretenses defrauds a
person of a few dollars, the state does
nstask the owner to prosecute the

pense, and by its own officers on the
ground that bringing criminals to pun

The refusal to perform legal obliga
tions, which are conditions upon which
corporation received its franchise
and privileges, is a matter which con
cerns the publlo, and the state should
see that these obligations are performed,
or that the corporation shall cease to
enjoy the franchise and privileges.
The superintendent of the road must
be ignorant of the fact that by refusing
to furnish cars and transporting tbe
grain of farmers he is putting at defl
anoe the laws of the state, is violating
one of the conditions upon which bis
corporation came Into existence; and Is
trampling upon the rights of a portion
of the publlo. For otherwise the only
explanation I am able to give for his
conduct is that it arises from innate
cussedness, or a combination with the
elevator owners along the line of the
road for gain, coupled with the Cal
vlnlstlo doctrine of total depravity,
which I am not willing to suppose.
Farmers of Nebraska, you need a stat
ute which shall in substance provide
that every railroad company owning a
railroad ia the state, shall, at all sta
tlons build a siding sufficient to stand
upon it at least three cars, with such
grading and filling as will enable
wagons to drive to the cars, and con
veniently unload into the cars; and that
when any person shall notify the agent
at a station that a car or cars are want
ed to load with grain or other freight,
It shall be the duty of the company,
within thirty-six hours after such notice
to furnish a car or cars suitable for the
freight to be transported, and place tbe
same on the siding, and when loaded
that the company shall without delay
transport said freight to its p'ace of des
tlnntlon, if such place is on the line of
its road; and if beyond to the next car
rier toward the place of destination.
And that for so transferring no man
shall be charged more than Is legal. And
further previde that la case any rail
road shall refuse er neglsot to perform
these duties such refusal or neglect
shall be absolutely a forfeiture of lit
franchise, and that when the Attorney
General shall be notified of such re
fusal or neglect, it shall be his duty at
once to commence proceedings in quo
warranto to enforce the forfeiture.
Dang the beheading sword over the
unscrupulous, soulless knaves by
single thread. When the corporations
are made to understand that tholr life
depends upon their faithfully perform
Ing their duties to the publlo, that they
cannot dltrtrard the conditions upon
which they obtained existence, ami

letter From tbe Alliance Secretary.
Hartwell, Neb. Jan. 22, 04.
The firit of Hon. John H. Power's
meetings was held at Mlnden yesterday
and was a grat success both in numbers
and enthusiasm. If the same interest
is manifested all along the line it will
be only a short time until the Alliance
will be restored to its old time vigor tad
President l'a'e met with u, and his
remarks, although few, were earnest
and full of timely advice. I believe
Bro. Powers never did better, and that
Is saying a great deal, but it Is Impossi
ble that anyone could have heard and
not been benefited thereby. Everyone
that hears him is impressed with his
earnest and honest purpose to make tbe
lot of the toiler better and happier, and
to make the title American citizen more
to be desired than a monarch's crown.
The speeches of these visiting broth
ers took up so much time of tho county
Alliance that there was no time for tbe
election of officers, and a recess was
taken for one week, when the county
officers will be elected, and a good turn
out is expected. The following resolu
tion was adopted unanimously:
Resolved. That we heartily con
gratulate our senator. Hon. Wm. V.
Allen and his co-workers in their efforts
before the supreme court of our nation
to stop the issue of government bonds
by the secretary of the treasurer.
I believe the Alliance must soon
arouse to more decided action, or our
children will not be free even in name.
There never was a time when "eter
nal vigilance" seemed as necessary to
me as it does now.
The worst enemies of the Alliance
are its proffered friends who would
have us think our work was accomplish
ed, whereas it is ocly begun. We must
educate and agitate until every demand
for right and justice is enacted into
aw. Yours for Industrial freedom.

In your issue of July 6th, 1893, you
have an article on the financial condi
tion of Norway. The constitution of
that country was adopted In 1814 or 15,
It prohibited the Jews from entering
that country, but in 1848 the prohibi
tion was repealed.
No doubt the au.horities were taught
to understand how tbe people could be
set to work and bring debt upon them'
selves by labor. One of their national

Then it proclaims; "Liberty to think,
liberty to talk, liberty to work for the
good of the country" making bonds
for the Jews.
After they had here Inflated the cur'
rency to their satisfaction they changed
the coin from dollar to crown no doub,
"strengthened the publlo credit," by
making the people pay two dollars In
stead of one. Then thev demonetized

cants had been received in '93 for which
agents had been paid 1124 or II each.
The Secretaries fees for the year was
162 or 50c per application, and other
expenses were In proportion. If the
Company bad overpaid agents in the
field we could now boast of having a
large amount of insurance, but w pre

Asks tor Reversal. .
Lihcolk, Jan. 23. The Missouri Pa
cific Railway company filed a petition
in the supreme court yesterday as
plaintiff in error asking for a reversal
of judgment for $3,500 obtained by
John F. Tietken. who sued for $10,000
damages. Tietken started from Scio
to Chicago in charge of some stock.
He got off the train to take advantage
of twenty minutes for dinner as an
nounced by the conductor. Before the
twenty minutes expired "the conduc
tor suddenly and excitedly called out
to the plaintiff that he must immedi
ately get on board said train, or he
would be left and could not accompany
his stock." He attempted to obey, but
the train moved off, his feet slipped,'
his right foot was crushed by tho
wheels and had to be amputated. His
big toe on the other foot was also
crushed and had to b$ amputated.
The railway company saya the plain
tiff waa Injured by his own negligence
and asks for a reversal.
