Thanks to the energetic efforts
of Representative Crounse his
bill declaring Railroad lands subject
to local and State taxation from the
time they become entitled to them,
irrespective of the time their pa

The heaviest property owners in
the county where these lands were
located happen to bo tho Union

homesteaders. The refusal of the
Union Pacific to submit to local
taxation forced the entire burden
upon the few resident and non-resident
land owners whose property
was taxable and the General found
his tax bills so enormous that he

Accordino to our "Washington

agreed to recommend the enact

Arkansas telegraphs to President
Grant that he has no power to re

posted. Has not the Supreme Court
of Nebraska established a precedent
which lays down the rule that Gov

Washington, May 8, '74.
In Washington at last. The great
centre and fountain head of Repub
licanism, the capital of America,
and lastly a fossilized old burg.
Hero it was that the eloquence of
Statesmen in days past electrified
the Nation. Here it was that tho
cutting sarcasms of a Calhoun and
Clay clashed upon the public ear.
Hero it is that the drivelling sophis
try of the present hour betrays the
downfall of Statesmanship in our
country. To attempt In a news
.paper article to give anything like
a clear conception of men . and
things in this tho most important
city on our continent, would be
puerile and time misspent. To treat
of tho issues beforo tho people with
a facile pen is all that can be at
tempted with any show of intelligibility.
Suffice it to say of tho city of
Washington that by general accord
it is considered the dullest, most
lethargic city in the Union outside
of governmental surroundings and
support The large number of de
partment employes amounting to
8,000 or 10,000 in number give a quasi
air of activity, but the old resident
and business element of tho town is
literally buried in the ashes of its
own follies. The magnificence of
the public buildings, and the lavish
expenditure of public monies in dec
orating the same, must be seen to
be appreciated. At some future
time I will endeavor to give a few
of the main features of interest. In
this short letter, I must deal with
items of most importance to Ne
braska men, and of local interest.

In company with Senator Hitch

of matter concerning the Union Pa

How tho Georgia Minstrels Are
Being Waxed. ,
Mutiny ABong the Topeka
LeaTentrorth Times, Mcy IS 1
The original Georgia Minstrels,
billed for a performance here next
week, are having a bitter experience
in the surrounding towns. It seems
they travel on their dignity, with
their heads among the cloads and
are altogether too high-tonedfpr the
civil rights atmosphere of Kanas.
It was at Atchison the trouble first
commenced. A Mr. Twine, who-e
color is like unto that of the min
strels themselves, went to the agent
of the minstrel company to -purchase
a ticket for a reserved seatjfor
nis wile, lie alleges that he was re-
fnctwl ciiinl, flilmf mwl tlmf- rruvfnn
the ground of his color. This was a
gross insult to the dignity of a col
ored man, and showed a want of re
spect for his ministerial character.
To refuse to sell a colored man, and
he a minister of the gospel and a
politician, a ticket to a nlace of
amusement was, provided the refu
sal should como from a white man,
one of the things which the famous
civil rights bill was designed to pre
vent. Of course Mr. Twine became en
raged at once, got out an attach
ment on the instruments and bag
gage of the minstrel company, and
is determined that the insult to his
color shall be healed with a goodly
sum of greenbacks. It remains to
be seen how much damage will be
awarded a minister's wife for not
allowing her a reserved soat at tho
Leaving Atchison tho Minstrels
dropped down upon Topeka and
put up at the Tefft House, where a
knowle Ige of their Atchison trans
action had preceeded them. The
Commonwealth says: Upon learn
ing of the presence of the distin
guished strangers tho corps of din
ing room girls at the hotel informed
the steward that they would not wait
on the minstrels at tho table. This
unpleasant bit of information was
communicated by the .stewart to
Mr. Williams, one of the proprie
tors, who interviewed the high
toned domestics, and informed them
that he would pay each of them a
dollar extra if they would take and
fill orders for the minstrels the same
as for the whole guests, and that he
would deduct one dollar from the
salary of each girl who failed to
put in an appearance at the dinner
The hour for dinner arrived, and
the mjnstrols took their seats in the
dining room, unbuttoned their
waistcoats, and prepared themselves
for a much-coveted square meal.
But the waiters were missing, being
unwilling to sacrifice so much prin
ciple for so little money. What
was a paltry dollar to them, weigh
ed in the balance with tho accumu
lated prejudice of years ? . Absolute
ly nothing, and they determined to
fight it out on that lino if they
never made another dollar in the
The result was what might have
been expected; the girls all united
in an insurrection, with tho excep
tion of two, and for a while matters
were very lively in every part of
tiie house, except the table, where
the Georgians sat patiently waiting
for somebody to bring on some mac
aroni and vegetables.
The excessively conscientious in
terpreters of tho daily bill of fare
were finally discharged in a body
and other assistance obtained.

Hon. John MoniussEY behaved
himself while in Congress, but he is
at his old prize-ring tricks in New
