Mr. Editor: It lias been currently
talked around that Hoisel's boiler in

The boiler nearly give way in a partic

my shop and put a patch on it and test
ed it to 100 lbs to the square inch with
hydraulic pressure, which I consider
sufficient, as they only require 35 to 40

We learn from those who know, that
Nebraska's representative in congress,
Frank Welch, is one of the most inde
fatigable members of that body al
ways at work and at his post. n e
have not seen an instance but that he
is at his post at roll call. We venture
to say that Welch will never "dodge a
vote." If we shall only succeed in get
ting Col. Majois in, where he belongs,
and of right should be, Nebraska
would have "a whole team and ahorse

And now, comes Iowa The people
there demf ill a law that shall asse. s
property more equally. The Nonpa
reil, Council Bluffs, says this about it:
We have not a bill before us, but under
stand that the main feature of the bill
is a provision requiring all property to
be assessed at its actual cash value.
The bill provides for the appointment
of not more than three assessors for
each county, to be appointed bv the
county Board of supervisors. It is
evident that our system of assessment
should be changed. The old nlan
amounts to confiscation of a large
amount of property In the west and
northwestern jiortions of the state.
Unimproved lards in the sections nam
ed are valued. In many instances, at
from six to ten dollars per acre, twice
as much as the land would sell for in
the open market.

We learn from the Omaha Republi
can the following facts about the Sta
tus of pro-rata measures in Congress:
The proposed congressional legisla
tion, host ile to the Union Pacific, is in
the Chaffee bill in the senate, and the
Crittenden bill in the house. The
Chaffee bill has been referred to the
sennate committee on judiciary. The
Crittended bill has been referred to the
house committee on the Pacific rail
roads, and several hearings have been
had and are still in progress.
A. II. Holmes; of New York opened
the argument in behalf of the Kansas
Pacific. President Bain, of the St.
Louis Board of Trade, and ex-Gov.
Stannard, of Missouri, followed
in behalf of the city of St.
Louis. Mr. Crittenden addressed
the committee in behalf of his bill.
Mr. Parish, a New York attorney, was
heard on be-half of the first mortgage
bondholders of the Denver Pacific. On
Tuesday and Saturday of last week,
thp sessions of tbe committee (2 hours
each day) were given up to Mr. Popple
ton on Udialf of the Union Pacific.
Horace White wa3 to address the com
mittee yesterday in favor of the bill,
on behalf of the first mortgage bond
holelers of the Kanens Pacific, of whom
be claims to lie one.
There yet remain to be heard: Mr.
Withrow, against the bill, on behalf of
the Iowa pool lines; Mr. Shellabarger,
