Candidates for the next legislature
may as well commit themselves now
to the study of railway legislation.
This will he the issue in the next state
and congressional campaigns, and no
candidate of any party can hope to be
elected who is not in favor of some
measure looking to a just and equita
ble settlement of this great question
between the railroads and the people.
Sehatob Wilson, of Iowa, has in
troduced a bill to establish a board of
later-state commerce. This bill in
jadgwast covers most of the 1
ground in controversy, if it can be
done by providing a board of com
missioners with jurisdiction over all
qnestions relating to commerce be
tween states, or between the United
States and foreign countries, espe
cially the matter of transportation, &c.
Senaton Van Wyck has introduced
a bill to secure reasonable rates of
transportation over the railroads aid
ed by the government. Mr. Van
Wyck said he introduced it a9 a sub
stitute for a similar one, which only
covered the Union and Central Pa
cific. The government has aided
these roads, which were, as they are
termed, "partitioning" among them
the great empire stretching across the
It is stated that tho mountains of
Gellivara, in the northern part of
Sweden, consist of pure magnetic iron
in immense layers of several hundred
feet. One of these peaks alone is
supposed to contain 280,000,000 tons.
Largo forests are contiguous, and
they are less than 100 miles from the
Atlantic. A railroad is to be built,
and it is estimated that the iron can
be delivered on the seacoast at a cost
of 50 cents per ton.
An express train on the Cincinnati
division of tho Toledo, Cincinnati and
St. Louis railroad, consisting of seven
coaches and a baggage car and engine,
dashed off a long trestle twenty feet
high, near Beavertown, Ohio, the
other evening, causing a complete
wreck. The accident was caused by
the breaking of a truck wheel of the
engine. There were twenty passen
gers on board, five of whom were
injured, some of them badly.
Senator Van Wyck is unquestion
ably the most effective worker Ne
braska has ever had in congress. Hi
foresight and shrewdness in matters
pertaining to the needs of the country
have never been equaled by any rep
resentative from this state. His rep
utation is as wide as the nation itself,
and even though a decree has gone
forth from the political bosses that he
shall not succeed himself be will re
ceive the gratitude of his constituen

A man by the name of Weatherby,
of Dubuque, Iowa, the other night
shot a peddler known as "Mosc the
Jew," five times, inflicting probably
fatal injuries. He had sold Sirs.
Weatherby some goods and had called
the next day by request, to get his
pay, and she refused to pay him, and
when ho demanded the goods back
Weatherby appeared from behind a
curtain and began to shoot. The
peddlar has always borne a good rep
utation, and some believe it was a
"put up job."
At Washington on the 17th the
sub-committee of the house commit
tee to which was referred the question
of retaliation on countries discrimi
nating against American .hog pro
ducts, has decided to report in favor
of Townshcnd's resolution, authoriz
ing the president, during the session
or recess of congress, to prohibit the
importation of articles deleterious to
public health from countries which,
on the same grounds, prohibit the
importation of any American goods.
An attempt will be made to have it
considered under suspension of the
rules ou Monday.
At Columbus.O., Jan. 17th Senator
Elect Henry B. Payne gave a banquet
to the members of the legislature. A
number of speeches were made.
Payne, In the course of his remarks,
referred to civil service. He said it
was like trying to clean Augean sta
bles with a tooth brush. The only
remedy was to elect a democratic
presideut. He favored a tariff for
revenue, limited to the necessities of
the government, economically admin
istered, and so adjusted as to encour
age productive industry at home and
afford a just compensation to labor
without fostering monopolies.
Senatob Van Wyck slaps a greedy
mouth wherever be sees it open In
the discussion of tho biil to create a
territorial government tor Alaska,
our senior senator objected to the U.
S. marshal being paid pattly by sal
ary and partly by fees, ou the ground
that "marshals depending ou fees
were liable to arrest people upon the
flimsiest pretexts in order to create
fees." His suggestion was adopted,
and if the same policy were pursued
down to the lowest office in the land,
there would be less cause lor people
to say that officials are taking more
than honestly belongs to them. The
fee business is a little too great a
temptation to the average office
It is high time that the fee sys
tem should be done away with among
county officials in the various states.
Every county office should be made a
salaried office, aud the officials should
not be allowed to have the benefit of
one cent of the fees. Under our pres
ent system several of the most im
portant county officials in Nebraska
receive salaries and at the 6ame time
have the privilege of disbursing the
fees of tbeir office. Every fee should
be turned into the treasury, and a
strict fee account kept by the different
officials. There is no telling how
much certain connty officials pocket
over and above their fixed salaries.
Gov. Dawes last week commuted
the death penalty sentences of John
Polin to be hanged at Plattsmouth on
last Friday, and George Hart, whose
execution was also set for Friday, at
Grand Island, to that of life impris
onment at hard labor in the peniten
tiary. Judge Cobb, of the supremo
court, in writing to Gov. Dawes in
the Polin case, makes use of the fol
lowing very strong language: "While
it cannot be announced as law from
the bench, yet it ia law which is ac
knowledged by almost all people,
whether savage or civilized, that he
who take the life of a man whom be i
believes guilty of violating the chas
tity of his wife or daughter, ha an
excuse which should shield him from
tho extreme penalty of the law."
The Lincoln Democrat thinks it
knows a thing or two about republi
can politicians. It says: "Senator
Manderson is going to take Judge
McCrary'a place; Joe Millard will
take that of Mauderson by appoint
ment, and judge Dundy is liable to
stay where he is. Thus upon the
legislature to be elected in November
next, will devolve the task of electing
a senator to fill Manderson's unex
pired term, and that legislature is not
going to elect Millard. General Man
derson is better adapted to the beuch
than to the senate; moreover, he
knows a good thing when he sees it,
and he has seen that vacancy. This,
moreover, suits the U. P. and B. & M.
railroads, it squelches the previous
Fremonter, whose name is Dorsey."
Besides the usual 'declaration of
anti-monopoly principles at the re
cent convention in Kearney, there
was an outside organization suggest
ed, and which is now being perfected
to be called Nebraska Farmers,
Merchants and Mechanics Protective
Association, a joint-stock company
designed to be a means of defense for
stockholders against "fraudulent
claims by patent right dealers; to en
force the collection of just taxes and
prevent the imposition of taxes for
debt fraudulently created; for prose
cution of claims for damages sustain
ed by citizens of this state by excess
ive transportation charges, injury to
persons or property by railways in
conveying passeugers and freight."
Of course this sort of business com
bination against monopoly rule will
be sneered at by the railroad news
paper cappers, as has already been
seen, but if it means solid busiuess, it
is a move in the right direction.
The State Bee-keepers Association
closed its fourth aunual session on
the 17th at Lincoln. It was more
largely attended than any previous
meeting, over sixty delegates from
other parts of the state were present,
and several from Iowa. A large col
lection of apiarian goods sent by
manufacturers for exhibition. There
were four different styles of honey
extractors, as many more bellows
smokers; comb fouudation, and sev
eral different styles of hives and
honey boxes; also honey and wax.
Filtccn old members answered to
their names, and forty-three signed
the constitution. The treasury show
ed a surplus of $30. A large amount
of busiuees was disposed of and many
questions discussed, together with the
clccliou of tho following officers:
T. S. Vondorn, Omaha, president; M.
S. Trestcr, Lincoln, sccretarj' ; R. V.
Muir, Browuyillc, treasurer; S. S.
Thomas, Plattsmouth, vice-president.
The awarding committee to judge
the fruits at the recent state horticul
tural exhibition consisted of J. B.
McDowell, of Fairbury ; Prof. Thomp
son, of Lincoln, and R. W. Day, of
Tekama, who awarded premiums as
follows: To Mr. Wiles, five varieties
of apples; E. Shugart, collection of
ten varieties of apples ; Hiram Craig,
display of twenty varieties ; E. Bea
ver, a collection of twenty varieties
and to W. R. Harris a display of ten
varieties. Ex - Gov. Furnas, J. H.
Masters, Mr. Beaver, Mr. Shugart,
Mr. Craig, Mr. Day, Barnard and Mr.
Tattle, in response to a resolution
offered by Mr. Wheeler, of Cass, pro
ceeded to di?cuss the samples of fruit
before them. The general experience
of the speakers and tone of the dis
cussion seemed to favor the Ben
Davis, Jonathan, Wine Sap, White
Winter Pearmain and Bellflower as
the best varieties for Nebraska. The
discussion was very interesting and
to fruit men certainly very profitable.
Van Wyck's peculiar way of pre
senting a subject is fully shown in the
following extract from oue of his
speeches recently made in the senate,
in a debate relative to the forfeiture
of the land grant of the New Or
leans & Paciiic railroad: "I knew
that next to the constitution the
highest law in this laud was the de
mand of a railroad company, par
ticularly a laud grant railroad com
pany. I know that heretofore their
demands in the Departments of this
Government have amounted to law;
and I have known, too, a3 I have read
their brief aud the decisions in the
Supreme Court of the United States,
that the-Supreme Court in a measure
have recognized that the demand of a
railroad company was next to the
Constitution of the land as the
highest law of the nation. It became
necessary that this matter should be
understood, and there should bo no
certifications issued, and no patents
granted to this railroad company,
whose only foundation for their claim
is an opinion of the Attorney General
of the United States."

T. S. Clarkson returned Saturday
from St. Louis, where he went to at
tend a meetinz of the National Sugir
Association. All the prominent suar
growers of the country were present,
fifteen different states beiug repre
sented. There were present five of
the promineut sugar growers of tho
state of Louiaiaua. Mr. Clarkson
says that it is a settled fact that as
good sugar can be made from north
ern cane as from southern. This year
four of the principal sugar factories
of the north manufactured 800,000
pounds of number one sugar from
sorghum cane. Kansas hd9 enjoyed
the reputation of being the best
northern cane growing state, but this
year Nebraska comes to the front as
the best. Kansas and Illinois had
early frosts this year that destroyed
& large part of their cane crop, while
Nebraska had a late frost. Although
this has been a poor year for the cane
growers, much has been accom
plished, and next year there will bo
more cane raised in the northern
states than ever before. The syrup
made from northern c-tne is iti great
demand and is selling more readily
in St. Louis than that mtdo from
southern cane. Makiug sugar from
sorghum cane is a new industry and
promises to be one of the largest and
best paying industries of our coun
try. Sorghum cane can be raided in
nearly all the northern states, and can
be made to pay more than any other
crop. Schuyler Herald.
