The elections of this fall seem to bo
working on public affairs. Congress
intends to bring all necessary legisla
tion forward at the beginning of the
session. Most of the important ap
propriation bills will, it is thought, be
acted upon at an early day. The rule
has generally been to postpone such
bills to the hurry and confusion of
the last days and put them through
under whip and spur. There are a
set of fellows always, whose chief
interest lies in the success of the
appropriation bills, and they can do
best when they have the entire session
to work in. It will be a matter of
public congratulation if the capitol
and other appropriation bills which
are being cooked for our legislature
are brought in at the beginning
of the session so as to receive
due consideration from member,
and also give the people, who
foot all the bills, the liberty of at
least counting the cobI beforehand.
It was reported during the campaign
that the candidate for governor who
received the election had pledged
himself to sign a capitol appropriation
bill of a stated (large) sum. It re
mains to be seeu how much truth
there may have been in the alleged
contract. The Journal has no doubt
but a large appropriation will be
asked for. What would Lincoln come
to Without the regular appropriations
ot large sums of money from the State
Treasury ? It is what they work for.
It is what they trade for, before and
after the event. All so-called moral
issues that come before the legislature
for consideration are used as blinds
for success. The senators and repre
sentatives (or the men who vote
them), who can be bribed by money
or the promise of office, to vote
against the public welfare, are used
to get au appropriation. It is Lin
coln's meat and drink to have an ap
propriation, and it is "old persim
mons" to have a large capitol appro
priation. Nobody blames Lincoln
especially for advocating these things,
but the rest of the state are to be
blamed for expenditures which are
not needed. The two wings of the
projected capital buildiug are com
pleted, and of course the old building
between is a very unsightly thing, an
eye-sore, and this -will be the main
argument used by Lincoln and her
cohorts to urge on the appropriation
of a large sum ($450,000 is the amount
said to be agreed upon), for putting
up the new "body." It is a pity to
have money in the treasury lying idle,
say these fellows. It id a great pity,
to be sure, but the better remedy is to
lighten the load of taxation. Argu
ments of this kind are easily made by
tax-eaters, but tax-payers don't take
to them so kindly. Something must
occasionally be done as these tax
payers want it, if you wish to keep
them in good humor. They are look
ing after the equalization of the pres
ent burdens a little, feeling that they
are about heavy enough, and you
want to go a little slow about these
costly public buildings. Instead of
increasing such expenditures, let them
be pushed down to the lowest prac
Last week manager Merrill, of the
Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul rail
road, telegraphed from New York to
freight and passenger agents' to re
store at once old rates. It is claimed
that the agreement comprising the
whole troubles arising in the recent
railroad war will be signed, and no
violation of this agreement will be
permitted for one year, under heavy
penalties; consequently "scalped"
tickets will not be in the market.
Among the same news, Commissioner
Daniels of the Colorado pool gives
notice that from January 1st, the em
igrant rate between the Missouri
river and Colorado points will be
abolished, and the only rates between
the Missouri river and Colorado
points will be: First-class, $25; sec
ond, $22, with fifty cents added for
St. Joe and Council Bluffs.
The Lincoln Journal of Tier.. Sth
has a labored article to show that the
law for the taxation of railroad prop
erty is all right. That may all be;
but the Journal man will be gray be
fore he gets the average farmer to see
it in that light. Railroads should pay
taxes on about the same proportion
of their real value, that other proper
ty in the state does; and till they do
the people will not be satisfied.
The above is from the Boone Co.
News. That is right. Quit your
flopping from one side to the other,
and give it to the railroad monopoly,
organs direct from the shoulder. The
editor of the Lincoln Journal is very
unreliable in the discussion of this
question, as his article shows.
A dreadful accident occurred the
other day at the saw mill of J. Vin

C. Bloss, Henry Hughs, C. Bager, G.
Price, W. P. Grove, J. McLaughlin
and S. Kennedy. Wade Kee was

explosion is not known.
The Pall Mall Gazette says that it is
