; A TRANSFER.
. We nire sadly in need of a transfer
between this city and the Railroad sta
tion. Will we hare one -one that will
be up to time and connect with all
, trains on the Railroad? ,,The city is
losing,, money, friends and reputation
because we have no certain connec
tions with ' the railroad, and ' unless
something is done to secure such' con
neclions we might just as well be fifty
miles as three miles from a railroad.
We want such arrangements for trans-
Tlie I'u Ion Pacific Railroad
Reports from the end of the track of
the Union Pacific Railroad are to the
effect that work had been temporarily
suspended about eight miles teyond
Bear River. This suponsion . was
caused by ihe destruction of : the tem
porary bridge across the Missouri riv
er, but as the bridge has been repaired
and trains are again crossing regularly,
supplies of iron will soon be forwarded
and work will again commence. The
Cheyenne Leader is'autborily fo"r'ay
iug that the track will be suspended
fer ths winter. The Leader expresses
the hope that the attention of the com
pany, af'er suspending operations on
the main line, will be directed towards
the-! Denver branch, . the grading of
which is now nearly ' completed, and
for about cue half its vhole length fur
nished with ties'.' This road can be
finished during ibis wlntnr, while it is
impossible to 'work advantageously at
the - western end Jof the main line:
The Denver Pacific' will be a profitable
branch of the Union Pacific Railroad,
and once completed, it will make rapid
and large returns on the investment

for the purpose of building a wag.
on road .Bridge across the Platte,
near its mouth, and thai the necessary
amount of Stock was subscribed to se
cure ther erection of the bridge. This
Company has been inactive for some
time, and we doubt not they have been
-awaiting, the development of certain
Railroad projects ' before they com
menced operations. ' We suppose the
matter of a Railroad alons: the west
bank' of the river is now a settled fact.
and we suggest that a combination of
interests be effected between' the
Bridge Company and the Railroad
men, and that the one bridge, or at
least th. one set of abutments and
piers, be made to answer for both
bridges. This can be done easily, and
would materially lessen the cost to each
Company.' , Will the Bridge Company
move in the matter and see what can
be done? :

Our enterprising fellow citizen, Capt.
E. B. Murphy, the popular host of that

Valley House,' designs! establishing a
Colony on the Republican River, early
' TIMBER. ,
We wou!3 call ihe special attention
of Nebraska farmers to an article on
the first page of the Herald, on the
subject of limber culture, being an ex
tract from an' essay read ia Illinois. '
One reason why we call especial at
tention to this article is :he fact,? that
the Tyroles Lacch mentioned in the
essay, is about to be 'introduced into
Nebraska by Messrs. Foster St Mahin.
of whom-mention nas made in .he
Herald last' week Mr Fosier has
already sent to Scotland Tor a quantity
of plants, which he expects here .early
in : the. Spring- We learn from Mr.
Mahin that this species of tree rwill
grow upon our. prairie soil equally as
rapid as the native Cottonwood and
that it is superior to Cedar for dura
bility. In fact,, it is just ' the thine
needed in Nebraska,' where we need
durable timber, and we aremovin" at
too rapid a pace to wait for the growth
of our ordinary hard wood limber.
That timber culture in Nebraska is one
of the most profitable kind of busine
that any man can engage in, is clear
to the mind of any man who his- ex
amined the subject.' The-' only di.Ti
cully appears to be that farme-s appear
too intent upon grasping the dollar they
next spring. The Capt. has travelled
all over that section of country, during see a little nearer at hand, andean
his connection with the Army, in pur- nevsr find rime and means to plant
suit of Indians, and he, as well as ma- timber which will yield no return for
ny of his command, were so captivated several years. There has been some
by the beauty, fertility, and abundant excuse for this in vears nast. :nhen
resources of the great valley of the Re
publican, that they have determined to
rescue it from the grasp of the merci
.less and uncivilized Indian.
Capt. Murphy proposes to move one
hundred to one hundred and fifty fam
ilies in a body to this garden spot of

Mb. Editor: It appears that the
Herd Law continues to be discussed ib
your, columns. There seems to 'je
so. i:e arguments, almost of.- a decisive
nature, which neither" party have con
sidered First, the expense of fencing
all the newly broken prairie in this
county1 with posts and wires. It is
asserted that as much land has been
broken during the present year in ihis
Siate as was in cultivation be"fore.
This land is all to be sown or planttd
in the spring and a great portion of it
is outside of any enclosure, and hence
must 'be : fenced. As regards ' this
county,- it is a low estimate to allow
that the wire to be purchased for fenc
ing purposes, in the-ensuing year,
would amount to enough to fence in
one hundred, quarter sections. The
wire. would cost 825,000, and the posts
provided they couly be obtained
will cost as much more.' Hence, this,
county will pay only the moderate sum
of S50.000 for fencing materials' the
coming year. Now, the money paid
for this wire goes ' as tribute to wire
manufacturers of the Eastern and Mid
die States., Many cf the posts may,
perhaps, be obtained in the State, but
a large number of them must be bought
on the other side cf the Missouri. Out
of the State ' again. Now would not
ten per cent, of the expense of so much
fencing herd all the stock n the coun
ty? Even if it cost 20 per cen:. that
would leave a margin of SO per cent. ir
the pockets of the farmer, instead of
payirg ihe whole to manufacturers of
posts and wire. But this expense does
not stop here; every bix or eight years
this fence must all be renewed, besides
the yearly patching of it.
It is stated by some of your contrib
utors 'hat in case a Herd Law is passed.
every owner of land has the right to
prosecute for the occupation cf his land
under the Herd Law. . Now every indi
vidua! who : po-sesses on indefeasible
right to land, can waive his right of
occupancy, and permit it to become a
pasture, but whetiif ver . such owner, of
land sees fit to lake control of his prop
erty or land, he has the unquestionable
right to prohibit stock of every descrip
tion from caazing" on his premises, all
the herd laws-to the contrary notwith
standing. Hflnce the argument of
"Tyro"amounts to nothing.The passage
of a. herd law is .the only means, by
which land speculators can fell their
lands in this county, thev would be the
last men who oaM opja ek
unless they deliberately intended to op
pose their own interests
" Let us for a moment consider the
inhumanity of the present system. In
this county are inar.y settlers in
straightened circumstances. They
have been residing for years cn the
same spot. Some of therrr homesteaded
their land." Others pre-empted. They
had no timber with which to fence.
All the means they could space was
expended in "purchasing fencing ma
terial to enclose a few acres around
their cabins, in order to make a subsis-
tance on the few acres thus enclosed.
The settler sows tx plants his scanty
farm, cultivates well. rnd all, his pros
pects are promising till the grass on the
surrounding prairies begins to fail.
Now. commences a life and death
ftruggle between the poor man and his
family on the one hand, and the hun
gry herds of stock on the other. - Now
for-weeks trnd months a continual
watching must be kept, and these surg-

on th importance of the St. Louis &
Nebraska Trunk Railrond.' He sys:

The Omaha papers are discussing
the matter of difference between a
Railroad from that place to Si Louis
via Lincoln, and by way of the river
towns of Nebraska. It seems there
are corporators of both these enterpri
ses in Omaha, and their ideas of bene
fits arising, materially differ. They
have talked the question over on the
supposition that but one could be built.'
The idea I as finally entered their
heads lhat both can and will be built at
some time in the future.
The question of which should be
first built, is the important . one. The
most densely settled portion of the State
will find it bunbeti.-oine to offer aid
thai will amount to an inducement, and
only a united action of all the populous
counties can secure the immediate con
struction of anv road in the State- The
St. Louis and Nebraska Trunk R. R.
is intended lo pass through all the
river counties, which are the better
settled und waluber districts and eve
ry energy of all interested should be
directed to ihe immediate construction
of ihis. line, after which -other lines
should be built, until ihe demand for
railroads in the State .is supplied. If
we allow other lines and interests to
block the wheels of the Trunk line,
when we have only to make a -united
move, to secure it through outside aid,
we may not get the road at all. Every
county and neighborhood in Nebraska
is interested in the Trunk line as at
present prejected, and our capitalists
should take hold of it as the best thing
for iht present and see lhat it is built
at once. Chronicle-
The iutimaiious which ar re
ceived from Washington thai the Sen
ate committee on Indian Affairs will
propose that the Indian Bureau be
created into a Department with its head
a Secretary in the Cabinet, strikes the
West with surprise. It is a phase
turned up in the great Indian fight that
was entirely unexpected,, and may be
regarded as a pretty strong indication
that the friends of "the transfer of In
dian affairs to the War Department,
are too weak in the Senate to have a
shadow of hope of reaching their ob
ject. The people of the West have now
got a really new sensation in the Wash
ington wing of the Indian war, and will
watch with increased interest the pro
press of ihis new phase of it. Repub
lican, : ' - .
Among the bills introduced into the
House ai Washington, was one by Mr.
Stokes, of Tenuessee, allowing the
clerks in ihe various departments .20
per cent, additional pay- The bill was
laid upon the table by a vote of nine
ayes to seventy-three nays. We are
glad to note this peremptory manner of
disposing of this question. Not a ses
sion of Congress fakes place, but these
men move heaven and earth, and some
of the things beneath the earth, to ad
vance their pay. Hundreds of them
are already paid much more than they
are worth, but. the difficulty lies in this,
that they have grown so apis-h in their
manners U at they think the treasury
of the United S ates is placed al their
disposal, for their comfort, convenience
and dignity. If they can't live there
let them res'gn. There are thousands
of as good men as they, who can live
on their salaries, soldiers, too. who are
obliged to. take the shifts of life, whilst
these Washington civilians were
warmed and fed al the public expense.
