Wheeeis, sundry citizens of Cass
county are misled to believe that if is
the intention of the . County Commis-
loners -of said county1 to issue the
bonds of said county to the Burlington
& Missouri River Railroad Company
without any guaranties from said Com
pany that they will complete and run
said road. Now, therefore, we, the
undersigned, Commissionera of - said
county, declare that it has been, and is
now our intention not to issue said
bonds uutil a full, sufficient and ample
guaranty is made by said Burlington
&. Missouri River Railroad Company
to the county of Cass, that 'the said
Company will complete, and finish.and
run their railroad through said county
within eighteen months from the time
they commence work on the some-;
and we further state that the conumit
tee of citizens from Cass county, who
visited the Company at Burlington, stat
ed to us that before claiming any bonds
from this county, the Company honest-
y intends entering into a. bond ..of

NWe desire to call the attention f
every citizen of this county to a careful
perusal of the followiog " FA.eTs in
connection wkh'the vote to be taken on
Saturday, the 27th inst. We regard
the action of the' people on that' day as
settling jfee, question whether or not
the people desire-, to Lave railrord fa
cilities, and .viewing the. matter from
this stand point we propose to lay be
fore them such information as we have.
From the statistics at . the Surveyor
General's office we gather that there
are 452.000 acres of land in this coun
ty that 226,175 acres are - entered
and owned by actual purchasers, and
that 25ot&25 acres . are still unimproved
and unentered of the amount entered
140,191 acres are owned by non-resi
dents, leaving 85,9S4 acres possessed
by actual settlersOf this latter amount,
as nearly as ws can . judge from : the
figures in possession of: the County
Clerk, there are only 40,000 acres
cultivated.' These 40,000 acres- are
peopled by 7,020 it-habitants, ! giving
us a voting force: of. 1,404 citizens.
These figures will bear the. closest
scrutiny,' and we invite parties interest
ed to examine: them- c!osely,to the end,
that they may all see thai wa have no
desire to mislead anyone.
Now-let us examine farther into the
results of 'labor in our county. We
take' the" numberjof acres cultivated ai
the amount above staled, 40,000 acres.
allowing that half of r this is put- in
wheat, we 'have 20,000 acres wheat,
and averaging the crop at? 15 bushels
to the acre, which la half a bushel be
low the. result of the published state
ment of the Department of Agricul
ture for our State, 1868, and we have
300,000 bushels wheat, putting the oth
er half in corn, at an average yield of
35 bushels per acre, and we have 700,
000 bushels corn, making a total of
1,000,000 bushels of "grain raised in
our county, as cultivated at present.
This amount, of produce brings in
cash to the producer for : wheat at
$1,00 per bushel $300,000,00, sd corn
at 50 cts. per bushel $350,000,00 or i
total of 3650,000,00. Now let us ex
amine what tbe result of a railroad
would ke on this produce of the soil
To-day wheat is worth,' at Omaha,
$1.10 per bushel, and corn is quoted at
85 cts. per bushel. The reasons for
this are, first, because ' Omaha has a
railrcad communication with the mar
kets east and west; socondly, Buyers
come to Omaha for'the grain products,
of Nebraska, because they can ivaos
port them to market speedily by means
of her railroad facilities, making her
the emporium of Nebraska trade.
- But when the merchants of Omaha
er Council Bluffs make large contracts
to deliver grain to non-resident pur
chasers, they have to seek through the
country for grain-, and the cost of
transportation-, drayage,' expenses of
purchasing agent, and all such inci
dental expenses, have to be deducted
from the price they pay producers in
oar county, and here is the secret why
our corn to day brings the farmer "only
50 cents per bushel, when, if he' were
near tbe Union., Pacific, Road or the
Chicago & North Western, he would
get 85 cts.; but because ' we have no
railroad facilities, we have to suffer a
deduction of 35 cts. per bushel on our
corn, which, in the total amount raised
in oar county last ysar, amounts to the
8nuj sum of $245,000. 'This amount
atom, lost ,lo the farmers ot Cass
county, during the last year, is more
than the Bonds thay are called to vote
on, amount to. '' 1
i It does not end here, however, for
just so long as we. have no railroad
through our countyto equalize- our fa
cilities with those of more wide-awake
localities, just so long will this loss to
the farmer occur year after year. In
the matter of wheat, we find the far
mer gets 10 cts. per bushel more for
his grain in Omaha than he can in any
town in Cass, and this' on' 300,000
bushels amounts to. a dead loss to the
producer of $30,000-every year which
is $10,000 more ' than the interest on
the proposed "Bonds" will amouut to.
Let farmers- realize the fact that.
with a railroad completed from Chica
go here, and another reaching intothe
mountains on the west, the peopie of
this county are placed on a par with
those of Douglas- county, and their
farra products will command just as
much here as they do in Omaha or
Council Bluffs. It is for the voters of
the county to say whether they are
willing to suffer such a lass in price of
grain as we have shown, or not; and if
they doubt our figures,, let them exam
ine any Omaha or Council Bluffs pa
per and see-the quotation - for them
selves. ;Agaiu, lhre, is only one I
twelfth of the county inhabited but let
a railroad be commenced, and every
foot of Land in Cass , will be occupied
and cultivated, and the assessed value
of raised to twelve
times what k is to-day in a short time.
Thus it m plain" that the tax to pay
the Interest and principal of the Bonds
will fall but partially on the present
population, and they will have to pay,
to reality, only one twelfth of the tax,
the population induced Into the county
by. the . construction of - the' railroad
bearing equally with them.
In addition iq these self-evident facu
we will compel the non resident own
ers of 110,191 acres to their propor
tion towards, enhancing tho value of
our lands and our, farm products
These non- resident owners have near
ly twice as much land as the residents
have and the . tax will falf equally on
them. ' . i .
Again, let us look this matter of
taxation fairly and f quarely m the face
If we vote 4For Bonds" we will have
to raise a tax of $20,000 to pay io-
terest on them ;opt what capital have
we got to levy on The assessed val
ue of our County is $2,000,000, and to
raise $20,000 would require a levy of
one per cent on tbe assessed valuation,
or the people would have to pay $1
for every $100. worth of property lis
ted by the Assessor. But then the
road, including depot?,"machine shops,
round bouses, way stations, coal yards,
office?, main track and side tracks, rol
ling stock, and- fencing, will cost 82,
000,000, every dollar of which is tax
able, so that every man -can eea the
Company will putr as much property in
the county as we already own, and the
asessed value 'in another year, inclu
ding the railroad, will be $4,000,000
which reduces the tax to half per cent or
50 cts. on every hundred dollars.
Again, this same railroad company has
60,000 acres land in this county which
will be taxable as soon as they build
their road, and this laud at the govern
ment price of $2,50 per acre, is worth
$150,000, so that throwing out of the
question all increase of J population,
and basing the tax sorely- on our pres
ent valuation, together with the prop
erty of the Company subject to taxation
as soon as the road is built, we will
have an assessed valuation of. the
county $4,150,000 out of which to
raise the $20,000 and the tax would
be less than 5 mills on the dollar.
, But no sane man believes that our
population and valuation would remain
as it now is if the road is built. It will
quadruple, and go n increasing from
year to year just as every other locality
has where railroads have shed tbeir
wide spread influence . for good, - and
consequently as tbe assessed valuation
increase.?, just so fast will the taxes
decrease. Lastly, let. every well
wisher of Cass County bear in mind
that our School, road and other County
and State taxes will also be reduced
by increasing the capital on which the
taxis levied,- and by voting "For
Bonds, we lighten taxation by just so
much as we increase our valuation as
a county for all time to come.
Weeping Water, March 15th, 1S69.
Ed. Herald While we fully agree
with you, that the man "who would
vole against railroad bonds on the 27th,
because the road was not sure to run
past their own door," would be very
foolish. . May we - not ask you if he
wou d not be as big a fool who would
vote two hundred thousaud dollars to a
company without any assurance that
the money would, be used in construct
ing the road 1 .' .
All that the citizens of Cass county
want to kuow to induce them to vote the
bonds proposed, is that the road will
be sure to be built if the bonds are is
sued. Before the call for an election
was issued, nearly .every-voter in our
precinct was in favor of tbe bonds; pro
vided, our commissioners ' would so
bind the company that they could not
get a bond or a dollar without return
iug an equivalent ta the couaty. But
instead of this.what do they propose to
do ? To issue the bonds on the comple
tion of the "road bed." Now, Mr. Ed
itor, can Cass county afford to give
two hundred thousand dollars for the
grading of a , railroad bed through it 1
If not, would it be wise to give it ?
Yoa may tell u. Mr. Editor,, that this
road will be built that the company
promises to build it without fail, and
we might as well give for tbe road
bed as the railroad completed. : But do
not railroad companies : sometimes
break tbeir promises ? ' Promise more
'than they, are able to perform?. Do
not most of us know of one or mere
railroad bed that have been graded
from ten to fifteen; and even twenty
years, and yet remain uncompleted?
You need but to look across the river
to find an instance of the kind. This
company may not intend any such de
lay. We hope not. But we have
known companies to do that which they
never intended. Companies, as well
as individuals, are liable to change
their minds Now what we want is a
sure thing so that if this company
houid change its programme, we will
not be the sufferers. This is no .more
than justice and right, and. right
wrongs no man. - If it t too late to
have the terms which tha bonds are to
be issued chanced for ibis election, let
'usvoie ag.ain.tti ihe bond unanimously,
and then have another eleciion called
to vote bonds, forty per cent of which
shall be issued on comp'etion of the first
ten miles of the road ready for the roll
ing stock forty per cent on the com
pletion of the second tea mile, and the
remainder when the road shall be eom-
pitied tbroagh the-county. This- would
make our cqunty safe and b an addi
tional inducement for. the company to
push the road through' as soon a pos
sible. . - """ . ' . .
Such a move could be carried by a
large majority, but judging from our
own precinct, we , anticipate an over-
wbelmning defeat for the bonds under
the' present call. ' Certainly 'no one
who has the future welfare of our
county at heart, can favor them.
" - - S - . - - --.r ... . . .
' r
The above communication comes
from one of our most valued corres
pondents, and we beg to call attention
to it The matter of voting for bonds
is only a preliminary arrangement.-
Before the bonds are issued there must
be a contract drawn up and signed by
the contracting parties, the County
Commissioners representing the coun
ty as the party of the first part, and the
authorized officers of the B. & M. R.
Company: representing the railroad
company as the party . of the second
part. This-contract is to specify that
the road is to be completed in running
order, and maintained and operated by
tbe company, within eighteen months;
to this the company will bind' them'
selves in the sum of five hundred thou
sand dollars, and it is to be an express
condition in the contract, that unless the
road is completed as aforesaid then the
bonds are to be null and void and of no
effect. No bonds ae-to be issued un--
less the company agrees to thi-s-'ar
rangeraent; and we have it directly
from the company that they are will
ing to make such a contract ia fact.
we know that the company consented
to have these express conditions pub
lished in the notice of election, but th
legal advisers of the county considered
it unnecessary embody it ia the no tice
of election, as it would be a part of
the contract between the County Com
missioners and the Railroad Company
The County Commissioners are not
required to issue these bonds, but are
only authorized to issue them; and they
will not be issued except on the fore
going conditions. . . ,.
We are free to say that no -one in
our ' recent legislature fought "road'
bed' bills more energetically than we
did, and we are of . the sam9 opinion
still and it is with a full understanding
of all the premises that we advocate
voting for bonds on the 27th inst., be
cause we know ibat the Company will
enter into bouis with the County Com
missioners to finish the road in eigh
teen months, in every respect equal to
the first class roads of the United
Slates. By issuing bonds on comple
tion of ten miles of road bed, we en
able the Company to give these bond
s collateral security for tbe payment
of iron wherewith to lay tbe , track
The accommodation being mutual on
both sides, and amply secured by the
bonds of the Company. We have too
much confidence in the integrity of our
Commissioners to credit for a moment
that they would curse the county with a
debt of $200,000 for a road bed. , We,
for one, will see thit no bonds ef the
county are issued unless the guaranty
of the Railroad Company is given in
return, and we cay this because the
company stands ready and willing to
give such guaranty as soon as we are
ready to receive it.
We hope every well-wisher of the
coun'y will set his neighbors right on
this subject, and can assure them that,
with the exception of tha N. Y. Cen
tral R. R. Co.s road, the B. & M. Co.
own an unbroken" line of Railroad
from the Atlantic to the Missouri river
and it is their intention to push, work
westward until .their line reaches the
Pacific by the shortest and consequent
ly ihe cheapest route.'
