THE NEBRASKA INDEPENDENT,
We feel like justifying the course
pursued by our president in regard to
fceepiag a half colored postmistress in
office or closing the office. The soutn
ern men need a little punching with
sharp sticks. Nineteen out of twenty
of the half colored population in the
south have -white fathers. For a man
to so hate his own children is not hu
man and even worse than devilish
No white man has ground for com
plaint when a white man's child is
appointed to office.
We were told by one of the busi
ness managers of Bryan's Commoner
that their circulation was over one
hundred and forty thousand and that
they used sixteen thousand pounds of
paper every week. Five or six hay
rack wagon loads of mail bags are
hauled to the cars over hay scales
without going through the Lincoln
postoffice. The Commoner is devoted
to the discussion of public questions.
or else the city given power to raise
the assessment of railroad property
the same as other city property.
The reason Mexico and other silver
nations are making such progress in
agriculture and manufacturing is clear
to be seen. Mexico, for instance, gets
a premium of one hundred per cent
upon every beef she swims across the
Rio Grande and sells on this side. If
she gets ten dollars of our money she
can exchange it for twenty Mexican
dollars. If we swim a beef across
atid sell it over there for ten Mexican
dollars they will be worth only five on
this side. That give3 silver countries
a hundred per cent the advantage over
us in trades either way.
How William Cody gained the nick
name "Buffalo Bill." In the days of
wild buffalo he was a great hunter
and a great story teller. He told that
one day he was out hunting and a
big buffalo bull came at him; he fired
at the old fellow, but missed. The
buffalo came rushing at him with his
head down and his homes projecting;
he knew it would do no good to run,
so he waited until the old fellow got
near, enough he stepped on the top of
his head, ran the length of his back,
jumped off behind and ran one way
and the buffalo kept on the other
way. He was known as Buffalo Bill
It does seem no more than just,
that railroad property, inside of city
limits, should be assessed for city
taxation not according to length of
track inside, but according to real
-value of property. For county and
state taxation the present system is
not objectionable. Dividing the whole
value of the road by the length of the
main track and then let counties tax
according to number of miles in the
county is not unjust. The city of
Lincoln has to support the police and
fire departments and the railroad
property is protected the same as
other property and why should it not
be taxed just the same according to
value? The law granting cities the
right to make a separate city assess
ment let the railroads out by paying
half the taxes they paid the city bo
fore. The city property was about
doubled in assessment and the per
cent levy was about half. The as
sessment of railroad property was not
raised, but the levy was halfed.
justice would require the law repealed

A new lottery has been invented,
known as the guessing lottery. It is
just as much a gambling scheme as
the old Louisiana lottery and should
be treated the came way. No paper
advertising a guessing match should
be allowed to go by mail nor any cir
cular. A man in Nashville, Tenn., has
just drawn five thousand dollars on a
guessing match in Georgia. They
guessed on the number of bales of
cotton in certain places.
All work and no play makes Jack a
dull boy; all play and no work makes
him a mere toy. A boy better be dull
and dwarfed by work than to be a
worthless top. Too much is being
done to keep children at play and
not allowing them to learn to work.
Easy work and reasonable length of
days should be the fate of every child
at his earliest play age. Playing,
schooling and working should go hand
in hand. .If there was more oppor
tunity for boys and girls to work anl
earn a little money in Lincoln it
would be much better for our city
What is to be the end of force
strikes? Are strikers going to arm
themselves and force employers to
yield to their demands? Are em
ployes going to dictate how business
must be run? and the owners of prop
erty pushed out? Can we establish an
arbitration court, with authority to
imprison employers and employes if
they do not obey its decisions? Or is
it possible to give cities, states and
general government a controlling and
directing power over all public utili
ties? Of course nothing in that line
can be done as long as millionaires
and corporation trusts own, control
and run the government. They do not
seem to entirely run the present presi
dent. We hope if we ever have such
a vicious strike in Lincoln as they
are having in South Bend, Ind., and
have had in other places, that the city
authorities will join with the street
car company, house the cars and sus
pend operations for three months, or
until motormen and conductors
enough are ready, individually, to sign
a labor contract for a year with ap
proved bondsmen as surety. We can
foot it and live a year without a
street car. It would be a blessing if
half the labor men were compelled to
leave the cities.
Towne and Bryan are subjects of
great scorn and derision because of
the wealth they have accumulated
during the last six years. No tariff
has helped them, no money law, no
banking law, no corporation or trust,
no finger have they had in our pub
lic treasury and yet Towne is as
sessed in New York city fifty thou
sand dollars. Bryan has moved out
onto a farm, so his loose property is
assessed as a farmer, not for city
We can remember back fifty years
when abolitionists, free soilers and re
publicans were ridiculed, egged and
spit upon about as the socialists, pop
ulists and Bryanites are today. It
has only taken four years of war and
forty years of freedom to convert all
the people, men, women and children,
over to the same doctrine. We have
faith to believe that the same over
turn will happen again.
The bubonic plague is making fear
ful ravages in California and Mexico.
What a change. A few years ago
the highest class of women were the
uneducated, submissive, good-looMng.
To own property, to do business or
earn wages was a disgrace. Especial
ly was it a disgrace for them to plan
self-support. Everything in a busi
ness line must be done in a father's
or husband's name and if they were
both dead some administrator or
guardian must manage her property.
Women must not appear in public;
they must not seek intelligence or
have any opinions of their own. The
greatest modern blessing to the race
is the educational tendency to qualify
young women for self-support. A man
must be decent now in order to get a
decent wife even though he may bp
wealthy. One of the modern moam
of intelligence among women are their
club meetings. There are some fool
ish card and basket ball clubs just as
there are among men, but they are
few; intelligence is the ruling feature
of women clubs. The marriage cere
mony once lodged the woman to
obey the man, but that has been
dropped. Husband and wife are not
equal yet before the law. but the ten
dency Is that way slowly.

THROUGH MAGICAL SCENES
A Scventeen-Mlla Drive Over the Moil Re
markable Highway lu the World
One of the chief attractions of the
Hotel Del Monte is the Seventeen-mile
Drive, unquestionably the most re
markable highway in the world. It
was constructed by the Pacific Im
provement company for the pleasure
of the hotel guests, and is macadam
ized throughout with the disintegrated
granite which underlies the peninsula
and of which the perfect walks and
drives in the grounds of the hotel are
constructed. Neither dust nor mud is
ever possible on this famous drive.
In its course it passes through Mon
terey and Pacific Grove on the bay
sore, cuts through the forest to the
north end of the peninsula, swings
westwardly to the Pacific ocean, then
southeastwardly to Canned bay, and
thence over the ridge back to Mon
terey and the Hotel Del Monte. Every
one of its seventeen miles brings
something new, strange, and wonder
ful into view natural beauties and
marvels wholly distinct and singular
ly fascinating. The Hotel Del Monte
is provided with stables completely
equipped with the best in the way of
horses, vehicles, drivers, and guides,
and the charges are modest.
Beginning at the hotel, the drive
passes the bathing pavilion, traverses

sight of the monument erected July

honor of Junipero S?rra, runs through
Pacific Grove, and then swings sharp
ly to the west and bores its winding
way through the forest. Before tnis
is done, however, we may drive
straight on through Monterey to the
old lighthouse on Point Pinos, and
note where the bicycle road turns out
to the left and runs down to beautiful
Lake Majella, near which are daz
zling white sandhills, fnarn which
glass is made.

the Union Pacific. Literature giving
