The reports from Lincoln on
the eve of tho convening legisla
ture read more like tho meeting :
of some railroad convention than
i body of men elected to repre
sent the people of Nebraska.
Charger and counter charges are
being made claiming the organiza
tion of both houses is controlled
by the Burlington or the Union
Pacific-Northwestern combine. It
is a shame and a disgrace that our
itate should be the prey of the
railroads who use the representa
tives of the people like so many
pawns in a game checkers. This
is not mere bluster of the demo
cratic press but is openly admitted
by such good republican authority
as the Omaha Bee and other pa
pers of the state. It is very hum
iliating to the people but they
have no just grievance as they .
have tolerated such domination
for years. Perhaps , some day
they will awaken to a truo pn e
of the situation ami will en i a
halt , but the Timrs confesses ( . .tat day seems far remote. Pa-
pillion Times.
