E. BOSEWATEB, Fnbllsher
Nearly five years ago, Omaha en
tered into a contract with the Union
Pacific Railroad Companj-, for the
purpose of securing the erection of
commodious Depot buildings anu
general offices m this city. By the
conditions of this contract, Omaha
obligated herself to donate to the
Company, the lands now designated
on our city map, as the Union Pa
cific depot grounds, and the Com
pany bound themselves to cause the
erection upon these grounds, of de
pot buildings and general offices,
valued at not Ipsa than $125,000.
Under the specific terms of this con
tract these structures wero to bo
completed and occupied within two
years after the transfer to the Com
pany of the titlo to the depot
And now let us briefly review how
this contract was kept by each of
these contracting parties. In other
words, let us examine the manner
In which each of them have com
plied or have sought to comply with
their solemn obligations. Assum
ing that the contract had been en
tered into in good faith by the man
agers of (he Union Pacific, Omaha
strained every nerve to fulfil her
part of ths agreement at the earliest
possible moment. Not only did her
citizens tax themselues to their ut
most capacity by voluntary contri
butions, but they also assumed a
heavy bonded indebtedness that
has saddled a burdensome tax
upon, ,the present generation
and proved an incalculable incu
bus upon Omaha's progress and
prosperity. Does any sane man be
lieve that Omaha would have as
sumed these burdens without the
repeated verbal and written assur
ances on the part of the Union
Pacific managers that they not only
proposed to carry out their part of
the compact to the letter, but that
they intended to erect buildings
superior to and more expensive
than those designated in the original
agreement. Thus Omaha was in
duced by cheap promises and false
pledges to part with her bonds and
Patiently, meekly, and silently,
aho ha for years born her yoke
until patience, humility, and silence
have ceased to be considered attri
butes of virtue. More than two
years ago, our citizens were regaled
withmagnificent plans of the great
Omaha .depot, that wa3 to be, and
when these plans appeared in Cro
fut's transcontinental "World, the
measure of our ambition was brim
ful and overflowing. Twelve
months passed, and those plans
Ww supplemented by others less
extravagant, but more substantial.
Those.plaBS have Jn their turn been
admired, puffed and shelved.
When Horace F. Clark visited
Omaha twelve months ago our
tdtjiwaw -received the most solemn
ajwurances that these plans would
"be practically executed 'within four
months. Six monihs later we were
MMixred Jiy Mr. Sickles that al
JbtNigh it was too late in the season
to complete tho depot and head
quarters baUdings, w could rely
sipea their completion during the
patent spring. And now Presi
dent Dillon desires us to be patient
and all will be right.
i uas Deen ine same olu song
from Durant to Dillon, and who can
blame our citizens if this song has
lost its original charm upon them?
"It wiH all eome out right," says
ProsMsit DtHoo, but Omaha refuses
to jUMsve this prediction until it
nrMMeat Dillon complains about
te heavy taxation, and yet he does
aolvsessa Ie conprehehd that his
compear Is the chief cause of it,
both (mreedy and Indirectly. Oma--M
-falrseay paid more interest
upon her, Uakm Pacific indebted
Bess the would have been required
to bulM Meek depot and headquar-"
ter bnMrsaifn. We are safe in
another sreposition that Omaha
would ie-ehty be willing to under
take the brsJtding and completion of
these. bveUtags 1b the most sub
stantial pawner k the Union Pacific
weald wsrreader the bonds, or re-
Agaia, U the Union Pacific had
faithfully complied with their con
tract, Omaha would to-day contain
from five to eight millions more
I "taxable property, and taxation would
have been reduced in proportion
with iBcreaeed property -valuation.
Admitting thai the bridge tax is
'high, does not Omaha pay her pro
rata 01 tne iransier rous? uue item
alone -will illustrate this point
When transferring atthis point was
done byjteamferr3r,tP8 transfer
charges per passenger were only ten
cents; to-day they are fifty cents
per passenger over the bridge. In
making these comparisons we have
no desire to create prejudice or stir
up discontent The facts' speak for
themselves. Omaha has dealt hon
orably and fairly by the Union Pa
cific, and it is but fair to demand
that the Union Pacific shall be held
to the fulfilment of her contract ob
ligations. Refebrixo to the Grant-Sartoris
nuptials the Hew York Herald de
clares, "while there was a large
party of .friends present at -the mar.
riage, an abundance of floral tributes
and a display of elegant toilets, as
was very proper, ths event was dis
tinguished for that republican sim
plicity to becoming in the family of
the first citizen of this Republic."
And the Bee desires to remark if
this be a sample of republican sim
plicity the less we have of it in
this oountiy the better for republi
canism. Senator Tipton has again distingT
uished himself by going back on his
early record. When the people of
Nebraska elected him to the United
States Senate, he was known and
recognized as one of the most vio
lent anti-slavery, equal rights ad
vocates. An o)4 school abolitionist,
he was always ready to out herotj
Herod, and nobody could be radical
qnqugl) for him. Last Saturday he
recorded his vote against equal
rights, by voting against Sumnor's
civil rights bill.

The Rural Sun advises Patrons
as follows: "Have no Grange can
didates, but vote for the men who
will do most to protect and foster
agriculture, buf do not vote for one
simply on the ground and for the
reason that he is a Patron. The
farmers and Patrons in -their indi
vidual capacity, should use their in
fluence to bring about a good return
to the good old rule, 'the office
should seek the man and not the
man the office.' To pursue any
other course will be to introduce
strife and dissentions m their organ
izations, and impair, if not destroy,
the usefulness of such organizations,
with no resulting beneficial effects.
Resolved into a separate body, the
Patrons would unify andstrengthen
the opposition. Move slowly ; it is
far better to hold on to what we
have, than imperil it by trying to
get more before we arc able to hold
it. Agriculture needs friends, and
friends cannot be won in the man
ner proposed by some.

We have been through the coun

their corn in, and some is up about
ready for the cultivator, and there

Never since tho settlement of our
stale, nave we, at this season of the
year had a better prospect for a rich
harvest. It was late in the spring
before our farmers could get at their
work, but from the time the first
furrow was plowed, which was
nearly April, we have hardly had a
day but what they could work com
fortably and to advantage, inputting
In their crops.
In consequence of so large an
amount of fall plowing having been
uone, me wneat ana oats were
nearly all in the ground by the mid
dle of April, and the warm growing
weather we have had since that
time, has brought them for
ward unprecedently fast. It
is calculated by those who
have been giving this matter atten
tion, tnat mere is in this vicinity
at least one-fourth more acres of
smau grain m tne ground this year
than last. The corn has nearly all
been planted before this, and the
most of it now showing itself above
the ground, with every prospect of
a good stand. If the crops that are
now growing, go through until har
