Of the maximum freight bill General Mana
ger Holdrege of the Burlington says: “The
fanners of Nebraska have said that it was a
just measure. We shall see whether it is or
not by allowing it to become a law. Under
the construction of the supreme court the bill
will not go into effect until August 1, and by
, that time the tariffs can be made looking to
It seems that the Burlington’s restless un
tiring ambition to build will never cease. The
telegraph of Wednesday announces that work
is about to be commenced and the line pushed
still farther northwest from Sheridan, and that
ere many months the Burlington will be
a daily visitor to Northern Pacific points.
The report also states that work is to be kept
up until the famous Puget sound is reached,
and.either, or both, Tacoma and Seattle are
shown as Burlington towns.
Chauncy M. Depew’s frank admission
that the rates to the world’s fair are too high
and will be reduced is something new, coming
from a railroad manager. The average official
is afraid to take the public into his confidence,
and the result is neither is satisfactory to the
roads nor the people. If the managers would
be candid at all times in discussing that part of
the railroad business in which the public has
a right to make inquiry the result would be
beneficial to all parties concerned.
There will be another excursion run to
Sheridan, Wyoming, from several Nebraska
towns July 1st. The country around Sheridan
is at present wild and not very attractive to
look at but those who have given the country
a thorough study are confident that there are
great things in store for the very near future,
and that persons who go there now and invest
will soon reap immense benefits. The B. &
M. is building farther to the northwest and
opening up territory that is bound to become
valuable in a short time. It is not for fun
that the great Burlington Route is expending
hundreds of thousands of dollars in opening
up this new country. The company knows it
has a good thing and men with capital to in
vest should not hesitate to follow.
Up at Haigler the men composing the
steel gang now at that place have organized
themselves into a sort of vigilance committee
and propose to correct some of the irregulari
ties of the citizens. The other night they
called at Frank Beasley’s and demand an ex
planation of his conduct for driving his eldest
daughter from home at midnight. After ex
tracting a promise from Beasley never to do
so again they read him a lecture so long as the
moral law and the quietly dispersed. Latter
the committee “spotted” John Hill, a man who
has a habitual dislike for work, notifying him
that he would be waited upon if he did not
find employment within twenty-four hours.
The community is considerably wrought up
and evil doers are shaking in their boots.—

The hot winds blow in the wooly west, and
the soothing rains are shy; but where can
mortal find a rest except the one on high?
Toward the rising sun is rain galore, with an
interlude of hail, and the cyclone, with its
awful roar, leaves death along the trail. Then
smile at the wind and absent rain, nor sigh
for a country blest; no part of our uncle’s
broad domain is better than the west.
