FREIGHT BATES ABROAD.
President HoOurdy of the Motnml
Life when nettled on the witness
stand hut week revolved the original
reaaark that figures do not lie, bat
liars do figure. Expert evidence I of
this sort comes in handy at a time
when tho railroad propagandists are
attempting to settle the railroad ques
tion by assuring ns that railroad rates
are the "lowest in the world" in this
country. While this question does not
eatsr into the present issue, relative
rather than absolute rates being the
main object of reform at present, the
assertion deserves attention for the
light it throws on railroad methods of
educating the public
If the per ton per mile rate may be
taken as a fair basis for comparison,
something many good railroad men
say cannot be done, then freight
rates in sobm European countries are
apparently higher than in tbij coun
try. An examination and comparison
of conditions here and there shows
however the absurdity of making any
comparison between the per ton per
mile rate in Europe and the same rate
Take the matter of capitalization
for intsance, an element that has an
important bearing upon the necoflssary
charges for carrying freight. In
Europe the actual investment per mile
of railroad is from f200,000 to $300, 000.
.In America the capitalization averages
9G5.000 per mile, and a goodly per
cent of this is known to be water.
On a per cent basis the European
road is required to earn $6,000 or over
net per mile more than the American
road, to satisfy interest charges.
They tell us that European rates are
higher in spite of lower wages in
Europe. The fact is that American
railroads pay annually for men $3,625
per mile, while the European roads
Again in some European freight
rates is inculded the cost of carrying
free the mails and other government
property. Add to American freights
what the government pays the roads
for carrying mails and other govern
ment property and notice the result.
Then too, in England, whose rates
the railroads are fond of comparing
with oars, the railroads call for and
deliver freight as the express com
panies call for and deliver packages.
The railroad advocate forgets to add
to their charges when making com
parisons the mllions spent for drayage
by American shippers.
Perhaps most important of all the
omissions, of the railroad advocates
is their failure to call attention to the
fact that JEngland, where they fondly
tell us chat the average rate is two
cents while ours is eight mills, the
average haul of freight is twenty-five
miles, whereas in this country it is
240 miles. And here comes in the
astoundag fact that whereas in Eng
land the charge per ton mile for .this
twenty-five mile haul is two cents,
in America the average charge for a
haul of this length is over five cents,
or two and a half times as much.
Freight rates in. Nebraska on local
business are probably close to four
times the , .-eight rates in England on
local business. Another element that
enters into the apparent cheapness -of
American rates is the fact that three
fourths of- the- American shipments
are of raw. materials which are the
cheapest to handle whereas in Eng
land the proportion is .the other way.
We cannot forget also that the
American low rates so far as they
affect the public are more apparent
than real Much of this . apparent
cheapness is found in the midnight

pany; to the railroad owning coal

The independent oil refiner who pays
85 cents a hundred on his shipment
does not appreciate the low rate of

Republican State Ticket Elected by 30,000.
According to (he testimony of
timers, last Tuesday night closed one
of the hottest political battles ever
waged in Old Platte.
The republican committee, without
money and with a weak organization,
armed only w.ith evidences of official
corruption, joined battle with
the democratic committee backed by
a perfect organisation with an un
limited snpply of money. And when
the emoke of battle cleared away the
democratic fortifications were fonnd
to be battered town and destroyed and
the three republican supervisors occu
pied the field.
Tne whole energy of the campaign
was centered in the supervisor fight
and the defeat of Ernst and Bender
sounds the death knell to the print
ing trust and tha bridge trust in
Piatte county. The victory is com
plete. Taxpayers of all parties are
entitled to credit for supporting the
republican candidates on a reform
.And tne victory is not connfined to
the election of republican supervisors.
Sheriff Carrig although running for
his second term came within an ace
of meeting defeat at the hands of
Bruce Webb. Indeed his defeat is a per
sonal victory for him. He carried
Creston township by nearly a hundred
majority and came within a dozen
votes of defeating Carrig in Carng's
home township. Had he made a
vigorous campaign in the townships
where he was not so weU known his
election would have been certain.

Morris for coroner and Shannon for
surveyor polled more than their share
of the vote and the repnbUcan state
ticket made a gain of several handred.
The total result of the election is
encouraging to republicans. The past
campaign has welded together the op
posing factions of the republican par
ty. No republican in the ootnty can
ba diBhatished with the excellent re
sults achieved by the central commit
tee, hampered as it was by lack of
The republican supervisors who take
their seats next January will be abso
lutely responsible for the county ad
ministration. It is np to them to cut
out illegal printing contracts and
other unnecessary expenses which
have been pointed out by this paper
for more than a year, and to devote
their energies, not to keeping the
democratic maohine in repair, bnt to
transacting the peoples' business on
business principles. These new super
visors owe no political debt to this
paper or any other paper in Platte
coucty and they can best serve the
republican party and best serve re
publican newspapers in the long run,
by simply serving the people.

O H. Smith for superintendent
came just as near defeating Leavy and
he made friends in his canvass that

he decide to run again. Leavy also

J. D. Stires for judge while he was
defeated by a little larger majority

ground that he was not a German.
