was withdrawn by the chair, under

declared that Pendleton had no option
in the matter, but that he must be

Letter frora Clem Cock
Gix?r Roce, July 14, 1SS3,
De.ie Sie: Wllh ; our kin 3 per-mi-i
ion I would like to say a few Tronls
n rdlr - Railroads : tnd particularly
the Xel raska Trunk R. R.. as sr plied
to Glen Rock precinct.
Tlie firmLa commanirr cannot see
that a road running through every
town along the river, will, or can.
bene't Glen Rock, as the distance of
hauling grain will not I lessened,
whether it goes on cars or boat, so long
as both have to be at the river.
Neither will it enhance our farms in
value, as the distance from the road
will not admit that any benefit from
this source can be derived. I admit
fully that railroads are a benefit to a
county, when they are within a rea
sonable distance of the farmers; bet
to build a road on one side of the
county, and want the other portion
of the county to help build it, that
does Dot reap corresponding benefits,
is neither just nor honorable.
Glen Rock is cot represented in
Railroads, or it would never have
given its consent for the Trunk road
to be built along the river. And, so
far as Glen Rock is concerned, the
people are just as liberal in their views,
and not more selfish than the rest of
mankind; and we hold that if Rail
roads are for the benefit of the farmer,
why cot build the roads for the farmer
and not the city merchant.
I would like to ask one Question.
It Li provided that no bonds shall be
issued to the St. Louis and Nebraska
Trunk R. R., unless the road should
run through or near St. Deroln, As
pinwail, Nemaha City, . Brownville,
and Peru, compeling the company to
build the road through these towns,
and leaving the conn try "out in the
cold. Now a question arises does
the town build the country, or rice
crra T It was not fair to the people of
Glen Bock! The company ought not
to have been restricted to any particu
lar route, as we bold there la a natural
route from' Nemaha City to Nebraska
City up the Nemaha valley to Glen
Rock, thence up Rock Creek to Ne
braska City. Should this route have
been taken, the people of Glen Rock
would have not opposed the aid, and
the county at large would have re
ceived the benefit.
How will you reconcile the fact that
you are in favor of the road running
anywhere through the county, and
working so hard for the cities and
against the county? Please be hon
est. Did you, or did you not, draw up
the article restricting the company to
take the river route, or no aid to be
I think It would have been fair, just
and proper, that each precinct should
have decided the question of aid or no
aid, the majority to rule in each cake.
for bond or no bonds to be issued, and
if the majority of Glen Rock say no.
it would not be right to compel them
to pay the aid tendered the railroads.
Iam, dear sir,
REMARKS BY THE THE EDITOR.
The farmers, says "Rock Creek,"
cannot see that a railroad running
through the towns on the river will
benefit Glen Rock; and asks if "we
did not draw up the article restricting
the company to take the river route
or no aid." While we are in favor of
any and all roads running through the
county, were nevertheless more in
terested in the shortest and most direct
lines to the eastern market. Not con
sidering the Trunk road one of the
most direct, we have not considered it
so important to the Interests of the
county as some others. Still we hve
and do favor any reasonable means
which will secure Its early completion
through the county. In accordance
with this feeling very extensively en
tertained by our citizens, a railroad
convention w&a called to meet at
Brownville.' "Rock Creek" will rec
olect that the call was published in the
Advertiser two weeks, inviting a dele
gation from each precinct in the coun
ty. That convention was held, as pre
viously advertised. We were not a
delegate, nor had we anything to do
with Its deliberations. That conven
tion decided to ask aid for the river
route, mentioning each town on the
river. So "Rock Creek" will see that
the convention, and not the Editor,
fixed the route.
mat convention appoiqtca a com
mittee to present the matter before the
County Commissioners, and made us
chairman of said commit fee. Now,
whatever article we wrote, was pursu
ant to the action of that convention,
and cot dictated by our own convic
tions. We were then, and are now,
willing that those points be left out ;
but we would be just as certain that
the route then would be up the river,
as we arc now. ' " ' ' ' '
'Rock Creek?' must understand one
thing, that it Is money and not natural
routes that secure the location of rail
roads. .And he and all others, must
understand another. thing, that $122,
000 will not build theToad in either
place; that the locality. that secures
' a w a
tne roaa wm xiave ,io , pay at jeasi
another $100,000' before' it is built
through the county.-... . , . ,v . VI
"The majority in Glen Rock say it
would not be right to' compel them to
pay for building a road through other
portions of the county, of which they
1 receive no corresponding benefit."
Just ro. , We grant it But have the
other portions of the county .which
must pay to get the road, no defence
for such a course. ' Let us see. - They
say that when the road is completed
the county; will assess . the road cs
other roads ' are assessed in the State,
at $17,030 per mile, and thirty miles
would make :$oI 0,000. Then they
would levy a county tax, a school tax,
a State tax, school house and district
taxes, poor house taxes, university
taxes, Lc, all for your benefit as much
as theirs, and they would reply that it
is not just and proper that they should
be compelled to pay $200,000 to build
the read to be taxed as much for your
benefit as theirs. -
Finally, we say that we do not ex
pect the people of Glen Rock, or those
of any other precinct, to pay this tax,
either justly or unjustly; but we do
confidently believe that tls railroad
property itself will not only pay the
mctt cf the tax, but for a long time
aft:r sz .h indebtedne?3 shall be paid
c.T- principal and interest, we expect
such rs! I road property to continue to
a i lt yea and all cf us, in paying
what shall then be rund nece?rr to
run our county the schools, the State
and the poor farm.
If this position be tree.. as the prac
tical operations of rail roads in other
counties in the State abundantly dem
onstrate, then where is the Injustice
complained of by "Rock "Creek 7"
We can't see it ! , , -

Jtfr. Edilors There has been much'
said against our county voting bonds
to the two Railroads; "that it is
against the interests of the farmers.
and will only benefit the towns, Ac"
I have no property in the towns, but
am engaged in farming, and believe
the farming class will be more bene
fited by these roads than the towns,
and will briefly give some of my rea
sons for entertaining that opinion :
I3L That after one or two years the
Railroad property in the county, at
the present rate of taxes on other
property, will pay the interest on the
bonds and part of the sinking fund to
redeem the bonds withinthe' twenty
2d. That as the river now has the
monopoly of the carrying trade, by
putting two Railroads in competition
with each other as well as competition
with the river, will so reduce the
price of freights on what the farmer
exports and imports indirectly, from
say eighty acres of cultivated land,
as to save him about fifty dollars
3d. The farmer is now idle with hii
team during the winter, because the
river Is closed and he cannot ship his
corn until the roads become settled in
the spring, when he is rushed with his
spring work of fencing, ploughing,
Ac, at a time when he can ill afford
to spare his team to haul his corn to
market. If we get the railroads he
can haul his corn during the dull sea
son to the Railroad, and hsve it at
once in the Eastern and Southern
markets. This would save at least
fifty dollars more.
4th. The farmer can ship his grain
direct to the Commission Merchant in
in St. Louis to be sold on his own ac
count, whereby he will save on eigh'
ty acres of crop, in the heavy in
Lu ranee on the river, and the commis
sion of the Nebraska grain dealer, at
least another fifty dollars.
5th. These railroads will Increase
the value of our lands, induce a large
emigration of a more wealthy class of
farmers, who will rapidly improve and
develop the country. Increase its
wealth in the agriculture, mechanical
and manufacturing interests, whereby
a much less rate of taxation will meet
our school, county and State burdens;
it will also cause our towns and cities
to rapidly Increase in proportion and
wealth, which will give the farmer a
good market for his fruit, butter, poul
try and carden products, which is
more profitable according to the cap!
tal and labor invested than wheat and
corn, 'i ma will increase his income
several hundred dollars yearly if he
chooses to put forth some effort In that
Now, with all these advantages, and
other incidental advantages too nu
merous to mention in detail in a short
communication, I ask ray brother
farmers are you willing to throw away
so brilliant a prospect for isemana
County by your own indifference to
your own interests, and let Nebraska
City and other points get what is now
within our own grasp, for fear you
may have to pay five to ten dollars
per quarter section additional tax, for
one or two years, until the roads are
built and taxed ?
Some say, what do I care whether
my laud is worth ten or fifty dollars
per acre? You may not now wish to
sell, but may at some future time.
But suppose you never selL Yet at
your death your children will do so,
If you have but one piece of land.
And think you it will make no differ
ence In their pecuniary welfare,
whether the land is worth ten or seventy-five
dollars per acre, when they
come to divide the money and start in
business for themselves ?
; Again. Look at the results of the
enterprise of people in other States,
in building railroads. What has de
veloped Illinois, and made her one of
the most wealthy and ' prosperous
States of the Un ion ? and still pushing
her onward and upward in the mag
nificent and proud career of wealth,
learning and refinement? Her pub
lic spirit in railroads and other kindred
enterprises. , Nebraska has an. equal
chance with soil, climate: and health,
for a glorioo3 and magnificent career.
If we will shake off our stinginess and
old fogy ism, and be up and doing, and
show some public spirit, instead of
holding on to every dollar that gets In
our clutches as though it was the last
we ever expected to get. You may
call it economy; but. the man who
will bold on, miser-like, to a few dol
lars, and thereby miss making hun
dreds, is not a wise man, to say the
least. ' " .
. Again I ask, are yon not willing to
contribute, something, of your own
free will and accord, to the general
prosperity of your county and State;
especially when your children are to
be beneficiaries and participants in
the general good of society? Let us
as farmers, then, no longer lie supine
ly on our backs, and hug the delusive
phantom of hope that Railroad pros
perity and- wealth will come to us
without our raising a finger. The ex
perience of other communities, in
other States, prove to the contrary.

Fearful Deluge In Kansan
. : ' Great IosirEdrai'-
The accounts from Kansas -of -the
tremendous rains and goods In that
State, on Thursday of last week, are of
a most Ead and terrible character. In
the neighborhood of Junction Citv
there was a perfect deluge, the coun
try being literally drowned out. ' At
Marshall, thirteen persons, men, wo
men and children were caught in the
terrible flood aad drowned. All the
the creeks in that region were over
flowed. 'Bridges, crops, houses, rail
roads, and much other property, were
destroyed. . The flood was extensive
and very damaging all over that State.
1 Kansas papers, in reference to the
storms and freshits in that State, says
a colon v or bweeds, were encamped

by the late rising of the Kaw, . The

hirteen succeeded -in doing so. the
remainder, twenty in alL being car

A terrible and perhaps fatal accident
happened to Joseph Brcsha. a resident
of Fancy Bottom, on Saturday lait at
Coming. Mr. B. had purchased
mowing machine and was prepannsr
to start home, when his mules toot
fright at a passing locomotive and
started to run away. In his efforts to
stop tbem Mr. Brush a was thrown
with great violence against the cutter
bar of the machine, the teeth striking
his back in the region of the neck and
shoulders, inflicting several very ugly
gashes. Held in this precarious situ
ation. he was dragged a distance of
perhaps fifty yards by the frightened
mules, resulting in very severe in jun
to hU spinal column. Drs. Tracy, of
this place, and Crane, of Brownville,
were called to administer to the want"
of the unfortunate man, and an ex
amination by the latter, (he having
arrived at hand first.) satisfied him
that the spinal cord was badly injured
if not entirely severed. " The only
wonder is that he was not killed out
right. ' Instant 'death was probably"
averted by the cutter bar having been
thrown out of gear.
P. S. Since the above was put in
type we learn tnat Mr. itrusna is
gaining somewhat, and that his symp
toms are more favorable. Atchison
The business men of Brownville
and ; the Commissioners of NemaHa
county should see that the bridges are
immediately .repaired on the . road
leading to Pawnee, on that part of it
which is in Nemaha county. If it is
not done it will materially interfere
with their trade from this county.
