Some of our brethren of the Ne
braska press are indulging in levity
with regard to the work of the rail
road commission. They have, in their
mind's eye, the first report of the com
mission after their trip over the B. &
M. system, and they are pointing, not
with pride, but with the finger of
derision, to the seeming trifles of the
complaints and recommendations
which the commission have seen
proper to lay before the people of the
This is hardly the course to pursue.
What seems, when read at a distance,
to be a trivial matter, is often a vital
thing to those immediately concerned.
If the commission is to be anything
or do anything, it must do its work
as prescribed by the law. It is plain
to see that, from the start, there seem
ed a prevalent opinion against the
commission, in that it was regarded
as a sort of "bumper'' between the
people and the companies, and as a
scheme tho least objectionable to the
companies of any that might be sug
gested, looking toward legislative
control of railroads, a confession of
the inevitable, but a putting off of the
day of reckoning. It may turn ont
that this is the case. But, in the
meantime, let due and proper credit
be given the commission for what
they do actually accomplish.
Nebraska people are not to be de
ceived. There are no three or six
or twelve men can be brought to
gether in the state who can convince
the great body of our farming and
business community that the trouble
does not lie in freight rates.
We do not say that other matters
are no account, but here is the work
shop for this commission, and by their
ability and desire to cope with this
branch of their duties, will their use
fulness be measured.
The commission have mado some
mention of freight rates, suggesting,
at least, that something is wrong
when the companies do not lay down
coal at non-competing paints at a
rate low enough to Indnce people to
burn it instead of corn, and we may
well wait patiently awhile and see
what is to be.
The field is large, the opportunity
to gather information good, and wo
could hope that some good iu
the way of cheaper rates for freight
might come out of it all. Let the
Commission labor and let the rest of
us wait a little wbilo longer.
The recent opinion of Chief Justice
Cobb rendered in the Supreme Court
of the State of Nebraska in the case of
the State on the relation of F. W.
Mattson against the Republican Val
ley Railroad, is a very important one
in the fact that it is the first of the
kind ever given by the Supreme Court
of this State, aud in the further fact
that it makes the most extreme ap
plication of the common law to the
railroads as common carriers, ever
made by any Supreme Court in the
United States. The application was
made to the Court for a writ of man
damus requiring the respondent, the
Republican Valley R. R. Co., to build
within the corporate limits of Blue
Springs a depot, and to lay down the
necessary side tracks and switches
and to stop its trains thereat for the
necessary transaction of business.
The opinion of Chief Justice Cobb as
announced and published in the State
Journal is quite lengthy and we give
only the Judge's concluding remarks
in which be says: "We have upon
thorongb examination of the evidence
and consideration of the same, togeth
er with argoments therein, as well at
the bar as in the exhaustive printed
briefs of counsel, found both of these
questions for the relator. A peremp
tory writ will therefore issue sub
stantially as prayed for, with costs.
A xiYSTEBious explosion occurred

part -of the vessel above water line

persons injured, some severely. The
pilot house and upper deck was lifted
and fell to the lower deck. The bow

.were over two hundred people on
board of the boat at the time of the
explosion. Tugs came to their relief
and the injured, with others were
soon removed. The cause of the ex

gunpowder placqd under the head of
the boiler maliciously. Detectives
have been put on the case.

caused au explosion, killing one of
the girls and fatally burning the oth

with its contents, was burned to the
ground. Rankin and wife are dan

of the calamity.

Apple Blight, Twit Might, er
The blight of the applo tree has
been made the subject of study and
observation in the department of
Botany and Horticulture. In and
about Lincoln the injury to trees has
been quite severe this year and the
loss will be considerable.
it is now knowu that Wight is a
genuiue disease, and that it can be
communicated from tree to tree, just
as small-pox can be communicated
from mail to man. The disease is
caused by Bacteria, as has been showu
by repeated experiments. A tew
days ago thin slices of a blighted
twig taken from the University cam
pus were submitted to careful micro
scopic examination, showing the tis
sues to be swarming with myriads of
bacteria. A bit of the gummy juice
which exudes from the dying twigs
was dissolved in water and a minute
drop placed under the microscope,
when it was seen to be filled with
enormous numbers of bacteria.
These bacteria are minute single-
celled plants, which get a living at the
expense of tho cells of tho young
apple twig, and finally destroy their
Very tull experiments have been
made at the New York Agricultural
experimeutal station which fully con
firm the facts 6et forth above. Many
1 trees were inoculated by puncturing
twigs and then inserting some or the
gummy exudation, or simply some of
the juice from the blighting twig, and
the disease was almost invariably
communicated. The experiments
showed that apple blight, pear blight
and quince blight are identical, as the
virus from any one produced the
ordinary blight upon the others. The
experiments also showed in a striking
manner that blight works best upon
the more succulent parts of the tree.
It was much easier to inoculate the
youug and still soft twigs than the
older and harder ones. From this it
is obvious that a variety of the apple
which ripens its wood qnickly will be
less subject to blight than any one
remaining succulent for a great time.
Everything that we now know of
blight suggests that the knife is still
the beet remedy. Follow Mr. Mas
ter's advice, and cut off every twig
which shows signs of blighting. And
do it as soon as the blight appears.
Cut low down in the twig. Be careful
not to coutaminate your knife by cut
ting into the diseased part, or you
may inoculate your tree with the
virus. Burn the blighted twigs, lest
they become a source of the contagion.

Is the name of a flourishing village in
Coffee county, Georgia, on the line of
the Brunswick and Albany railroad.
Mr. D. E. Gaskin, a well known
citizen of that village, writes under
date of December 22d :
Soon after my marriage, about four
years ago, my wife was stricken with

which broe down her general health.

made her a cripple. She was reduced

benefit, but the swelling In her joints
never left her. Last summer the

call for a few observations. What

County Superintendent (and I am not
here to delend him) this much is
clear, it is much easier to keep the
track of one mau iu his public duties
than it would be'of fifteen, as would
be the case if the suggestion of your
correspondent was carried out; be
sides are we not already working on
his principle? Is not the Director of
each district virtually the superin
tendent of the same, and bow often
does-he or the members of the Board
visit the school wheu in soijii? Let
the records of each school spek for
itself. If our school officers have no
interest in the cause of educition and
are not able to give advice to oar
teachers when needed, why not select
those who are so qualified, for rest
assured our district schools never cau
accomplish their truo work until this
is the case? What is wanting is that
the electiou of our superintendents,
both state and county, be taken out
of politics ; the latter should be select- it
ed by a convention of the directors, -or
some other representative of each '
school district, while the former J
should in like manner be selected by 'B
the Couuty Superintendents, as itj
raust be evident that they would beX
better qualified to judge of his abili-u
ties than would the ordinary politi-p
cian, whose standard too often does p
not rise above availability.
