another live meet in of the world's fair
committee to-day. Mesr Frank
Missouri and Stiver of Ne v York were
absent from tha city and Wilson waa en
gaged in tba ballot boi investigation.
Aa a oonaaqoanoa Chicago temporarily
loat two of tha members favorable to bar
and tha committee was tied up so aa to
be unable to make any progress. When
action 8, which leave blank the date
for holding the fair, waa reached, ChairJ
man Candler propoaad to fill in the blank
ao aa to provide for a dedication and
celebration on October 12, 1893, and for
holding'tbe fair in 1893. When the
question waa put on Candler' motion
the member of the cecum it tee refused
to vote and it waa at last agreed that
the date be filled in so aa to require the
fair to open April 10, 1392, and close in
October of the aame year. The entire
bill waa then read over and agreed upon
with the exception of section , which
will be acted upon at another meeting
to be held to-morrow.
Belden called up hi motion relative
to the 110,000,000 fund and there was an
animated discussion. The Cihcagc men
insisted upon tha sufficiency of the sub
scription, but Belden wished to aee the
subscription list. The Chairman pro
duced a list of names, to which the New
Yorker objected on the ground that
the names were unattached to the bead
ing and therefore the list was worthless
unaucially.GThe Chicago men explained
that this list a copy of the original
list which was properly headed and had
been seen by the chairman and the sub
committee. This failed to satisfy the
New York representative. Springer re
marked in a facetious manner that he
and Hitt would assume the $10,000,000
obligation and reminded Flower and
Belden that they had tried t- bluff the
house by the'same remark when the
bill was under diacuasion.

St. Louis, March 16. Report from
the lower Mississippi regarding the flood
say that part of the country between
the Arkansas line and Vickaburg, on
bath side of the river, ia in immineLt
danger of inundation. The water is
running over the Arkansas levee in sev

efforts are being concentrated to aave
the teveea in Louisiana between Vicka
burg and tha Arkansas line and those
on tba Mississippi shore between Vicka
burg and Greenville. On each of the
river tha moat heroic actions have been

doubted. Rain baa fallen in torrents
everywhere. At all the endangered
paint work ia kept up day and night,
lira stock and movable are being taken
to place of aafety. Over 200 miles of
levee are endangered and a general
overflow is considered inevitable. There
ia no cause to apprehend the losa of life,
but the destruction of property will be
A dispatch from Natchez says seven
inches of rain fell there during forty
eight hours and it still continues. The
planters in the low landa are counting
upon their plantations being overflowed,
aa they expect a break at any moment in
tha week in the levees below Lake Provi
dence. Thia would send the water to
tha Tensas basin and flood the planta

THE CORN RATE.
littrrrstiug Letters from Three
HOLKKE'' t i-r-E
Omaha, XA, March 13.-To Hon.
William Leese.'Liiiooln, Neb. Dear Sir:
You have caused to be pubhalied iu the
newspapers a socalled complaint against
the railroads of Nebraska, before the
interstate commerce commission, which
in all its important charges, is either
false or misleading. 1 address this let
ter to you trusting that your regard for
the truth may lead you to either destroy
the complaint without presenting it to
the members of the interstate commerce
commission when they arrive here this
week, or to correct the misstatements
before filing it.
The people in this state, for their own
interest, desire that the railroads which
serve them should maintain good tracks
and offer good accommodations for both
freight and passenger business. As a
railroad commissioner or member of the
state board of transportation, it is your
duty to deal justice to all interested.
If you will pause in your unwarranted
raid upon the railroads to consider the
facts herein mentioned, the proof for
which is and has been in your reach at
any time, yoif wilflind that it is due to tlie
public and the railroads that you should
retract the false charges that you have
made in this complaint and at other
times for the public ear.
You allege that since the interstate
commerce law took effect rates ujKtn
Nebraska railroads have been ''greatly
increased." The reverse is true.
You allege that, taking into consider
ation the rebates prior to the interstate
commerce law, the rates, upon corn in
particular, were less before the law took
effect than now. The fact is that, de
ducting the customary rebates from the
tariff rates prior to the law, the net re
sult gave considerably higher rates be
fore the law took effect than now. If
you base yourstatement on figures pre
vailing during some teinjxirary rate w ar
or emergency of competition, it is scarce
ly worthy of serious consideration.
You allege that the net rate from
Lincoln before the law took effect was
14 cents per lflo. This statement is un
true. You allege that the rates "upon corn
from Nebraska points to Chicago are so
high, unreasonable, exorbitant and ex
cessive that the producers of Nebraska
are unable to ship their corn to said
market and said exorbitant and exces
sive rates amount to prohibition upon
corn shipments." You contradict this
latter statement yourself in a paragraph
of your complaint headed "Third Cause
of Action." wherein yon state that tlie
roads have neglected and refused to fur
nish a sufficient number of cars for the
transportation of corn offered for ship
ment from points in Nebraska to points
without the state." For four weeks fol
lowing February 15, upon which date a
reduction of 10 per cent was made in
the corn rate, and during which period
you state the rate is prohibitory, from
twenty thousand to thirty thousand car
loads have been moved from Nebraska
points, or more than 12,000,000 bushels.
The reduction of 10 per cent made by
the railroads upon these sliipments
amounts to 200,000 in four weeks.
Your complaint, furthermore, that
the rates charged by Nebraska railroads
are excessive can be refuted by what
you yourself have at different times ad
mitted to be a fair measure of reason
able rates. You have admitted that
railroads should be permitted to earn a
fair rate of interest upon cost, or a fair
valuation. The sworn statement of all
of the railroads of Nebraska in the state
auditor's office show that in 187 there
were 4.621.83 miles of railroad in the
state; that their net earnings in 1887
amounted to 7,007,3rtO.O. With their
buildings, shops, tools, cars, engines and
terminal facilities, I do not believe the
railroads of this state can be duplicated
for 825,000 per mile at the present time.
If it should be admitted for the sake of
the argument that 25,000 per mile is a
fair valuation, this would give a total
valuation of SI 15,545,750. The railroads
earned in 1887 6.1 per cent upon its val
uation. In 1888 the mileage was 5,01 1.7 1
miles, which, atf25,000 per mite, would
give a valuation of 128,292,600. The
net earnings of all railroads in Nebras
ka in 1888 amounted to fto,302,57O.2,
showing 4 per cent on this valuation.
If, to make the matter still clearer, we
should admit that the railroads of this
state are worth only 990,000 per mile,
the interest earned in 1888 upon that
valuation would be only 5.3 per cent, out
of which the interest on the bonded in
debtedness must be paid before the
stockholders could receive anything.
' Since 1888 rates hare been materially
decreased, and it ia not probable that the
bowing for 1890 for the railroads will
be as favorable aa that of 1888.
You certainly, considering these facta
should not ask for a further reduction in
rates at the present time.
The railroads of Nebraska have, at
different times, voluntarily reduced the
through rates upon corn and other pro
doett. The corn rata for example, from
Hastings, Neb, to Chicago has been re
duced from 48 cents per 100 in 1875, to
Mssrtiu 1879, to B certain 1881, to
a cents ia 1137, and U ZSH cent par
KB at the present time, which to X
eeasi par M0 higher than the rate from
western lows points, -
The present rate from western Iowa
and from Missouri river points to Chi
cago upon corn is SUceuts per 100. This
rate is made upon a basis that is lower
than the tariffs of Illinois ami Iowa,
which are universally admitted to b
low. The same rate of 30 cents r 100
is extended westward for Nebraska
points sixty miles from the Missouri
river, and only 5 rents per t0 is added
to Iowa rates in forming through rates
from the most distant Nebraska points
to Chicago, the maximum rate upon corn
from Nebraska points now being 25
cents per 100, or about one-half as much
per ton per mile from western Nebras
ka points to Chicago as is charged from
central Iowa points to Chicago.
As tonnage increases in the f ut ure the
railroads will doubtless continue to make
similar gradual reductions ujkmi the pro
ducts of this state, when they can afford
to do so. These future reductions will
certainly be materially interferred with
or entirely prevented if the states of
Iowa and Nebraska continue to force
down rates upon general merchandise,
accomplishing thereby no practical good
for the producers, but preventing the
reductions he desires.
Your resolution, repeatedly intro
duced at the meeting of the state board
of transportation, if enforced would not
reduce rates upon corn or the important
products of this state to Chicago or
eastern markets the rates now added
to the Iowa rates in forming the through
rates from Nebraska points to the
markets being much less than the local
Iowa tariff. Your resolution, therefore,
if enforced would do harm to the far
mers of Nebraska, for the reason tliat if
you lower the tariff upon general mer
chandise, upon which the average far
mer pays in a year probably less than
1.50 er man, you will cripple the rail
roads in their power to carry the pro
ducts of this state at low rates in the
future, upon which many individual
farmers pay from 1,0TJ0 to 2.000 jer
To summarize this whole matter,
your complaint before the interstate j
commerce commission is based upon
misapprehension and misstatements.
Your demand upon the state board of
transportation for lower rates if carried
out to the letter, can accomplish no
practical good for this state, but w ill in
terfere with its future growth and pros
jierity. I venture to suggest that your duty as
a railroad commissioner requires you to
protect railroad property as well as other
property in this state, Railroads are
certainly important to this country
They have done more to enhance the
value of farm property than any other
agency. The western counties are
anxious for more railroads today.
Railroad construction ic this state has
been completely stoppeaJergely on ac-
holders and their places of residence,
and I will select my witnesses from
count of the raid upon railroads which
you have lead for several years past.
I would father say that the cry of
"Crucify Him," although it may be
started by priests and scribes and
followed by the populace, is not always
right. Yours Truly,

Lincoln, Neb, March 14.-To George
W. Hoktrege, Omaha, Neb. Dear Sir:
l'our communication lias been received,
and in answer thereto I will say that I
will prove every allegation alleged in
my petition before the interstate com
The board of transportation ordered
me to commence proceedings before the
interstate commerce commission, and I
have done so. I have gathered up what
testimony I could since that time and
formulated a complaint. The witnesses
that I have talked to will make tlie same
statements before the commission.
In regard to the watered stock, I have
asked the commission to require these
defendants to furnish a list of thestock
them on this proposition and prove by
them that the stock upon which they
are receiving big dividends did not cost
them a single dollar.
The case before the board of trans
portation today will prove one allegation
where they refused to furnish cars. It
is sufficient to say that when the ques
tion is at issue I will be on hand,
Gov. Thayer to thk Railroad
M an aoers. State of Nebraska,
Executive Department, Lincoln,
March 14, 1890. To the Interstate Com
merce Railway Association : When you
made a reduction of cents per bush
on corn to Chicago, it was given out at
once that the price of corn would be re
duced by just so much as the' freight
rate on corn was reduced. Jn other
words, that the farmers would not have
any benefit from the reduction. Well,
the gamblers, speculators and railroad
men owning elevators in Chicago, never
intended they should. Y'oumadeanom
inal redaction, and the price of corn
went down just that much. Then those
who predicted a depression of eorn were
enabled to say, "I totdjyou so; and the
railway were enabled to say that any
lowering of corn rates which we may
make will bring no good to the farmer.
The men In Chicago to whom I haver
f erred were ready to stand the risk of
bearing down corn according to the tri
Mnf lessening of the rate made. But
had you made a redaction ot I esnUper
hnadrsd M I deaasfflded, there were not
mt in tutor and boards of trade ia
Chicago to have dared to break thej
market. They mould never have dared
to depress tlie price of corn at that rate.
On the contrary, self preservation w ould
have compelled them to stiffen the mar
ket and send up the pru-e of corn.
I wss not at all satisfied itli the re
duction made, and w aited to see the re
sult which is by no means satisfactory.
1 now renew my demand at a much
higher figure, namely, a reduction of 10
cents a hundred pounds from oiiit in
Nebraska to Chicago. I am convinced
that the freight ratetheu remaining w ill
lay a fair proflit to the companies.
The railroads are now pnieroui, slid
have been prospering; their receijrtssliow
this; they are paving dividends; w hile
the condition of the fanners has been
growing worse. They are depressed.
You depress them because you deprive
them of the means of getting their corn
to market at a living price. This state
of things must not, cannot continue.
You are inflicting a great and grevious
wrong upon the fanners. They have a
right to their full share of the proter
ity is enjoyed at the expense of the far
mers. The ieople of Nebraska do not want
to fight the railroads; they desire that
the railroads shall prosper, but they de
mand also that the railroads shall no
longer oppress them as they have done.
They demand that tlie roads shall give
them fair and reasonable rates so that
they may obtain a just return for their
labors and investment.
The jieople are aroused now as they
never were liefore. The farmers of Ne
braska are aroused now as they never
were before. They demand justice and
just treatment and will not cea; that de
mand till they get it. I again warn you
of the disastrous consequences to the
roads if their just demand is refused.
I say this not by way of a threat, but as
a friendly warning. Hesjiect fully,
John M. Tii vvi:i:.
