Can they agree? Arc the interests
of mechanics and laborers Identical
with those of the farmers and agri
culturists ? The Bee has long since
expressed its doubts on this score,
and now the practical evidence of
the soundness of our conclusions
comes to us from Illinois.
About three weeks ago a conven
tion of farmers and workingmen
was held at Springfield, to put up a
platform and nominate a ticket.
The alliance madcat Springfield has
"however been of short duration.
Tue workingmen of Illinois have
publicly severed their connection
with tho movement. The Chicago
Tribune of the 13th explains the
situation by stating that "the work
ingmen care very much more about
what they believe to be their rights
than about any little matter of
gratitude. They complain that no
concessions were made to them In
the Springfield Convention, and
that nothing more is wanted of
them than steady and industrious
WHAT WOULD THEY D01
Is there a business man in or out
of tho city council that when he
lalanees his books at the end of the
year and finds that he has not made
any money, or perhaps lost sonic,
wouIq increase his expenses. Tax
payer in Omaha Herald.
That would depend entirely on
circumstances. If i wide-awake
and enterprising merchant should,
nt the end of the year, discover that
his income had fallen off for the
want of a proper effort to extend
his business, he might very judic
iously increase his expense with a
view of making up the lost foot
hold. Let us illustrate: Mippoe that
Omaha had two dry goods mer
chants, one of whom, "old fogy,"
was timil and parsimonious, and
the other, "wide awake," an ener
getic and shrewd business man.
Suppose, furthermore, that both
had Invested the fca.'uc capital and
both pursued an economical and
conservative policy during the first
year by rentinj cheap stores, hir
ing cheap clerks, and keeping their
advertising bills very low.
2sow suppose that at the end of
the year both of these merchants
should discover :i balance on the
wrong side of the ledger, what
would they do? "Old Fogy," the
timid, would naturally pursue the
policy intimated by the Herald tax
payer. He would decrease his ex
penses bj' moving to a cheaper store,
discharging one or two clerks and
cancelling his advertisement".
"Wide Awake on the other hand
would follow his energetic impulse
and increaM his expenses with a
view of extending his patronage.
He would either removcto a better
and more expensive location or he
would put in plate glass thow win
dows, sky-lights, and otherwise
embellish and improve hii "store to
render i t more attractive. He would
Also double or thrible his adver
vertisements In the newspapers, and
distribute posters and show cards,
exert his ingenuity in every direc
tion that would promise more cus
tom. Now which of these merchants
would at the end of the second year
come out ahead? Does anybody
doubt- that Old Fogy would come
out with even a greater balance
against him on the ledger, while
Wide Awake, with increased ex
penses would have built up u profit
able trade with a handsome balance
on the right side.
If the taxpayer who advocates
the do-nothing policy would for a
moment reflect he will discover the
analogy between that policy and
the course pursued by Old Fogy,
the supposed timid and parsimoni
ous dry goods merchant. It seems
to us that Omaha has pursued that
policy long enough. Our rickety
eidewalks, rotten bridges, and
break-neck cross-walks are disgust
ing and driving away people who
come here to invest. Our drainless,
muddy and unsightly thorough
fares arc striking evidences of thrift
lessuesa and a general want of con
fidence in Omaha's destiny as a
city. According to Taxpayer the
assessed valuation of Omaha proper
ty is $6,740,210, or about $3,000,000
below the valuation of 1ST0. Since
then over $1,500,000 in private and
public buildings and permauent
improvements luivc been added to
our property list.
This would indicate a shrinkage
of four millions and a half within
the past three" years. This
shrinkage proceeds directly from
the want of confidence in con
sequence of the do-nothing policy
pursued by our city government. :
Had Omaha inaugurated a liberal
system of permanent public im
provements in ISTher property
valuation to-day would be twelve
millions instead of six and a half
If, on the other hand, the do-
nothing policy shall be continued,
Omaha may as well prepare for
further shrinkage in real estate val
ues, and consequently for evpn a
higher rate of taxation than she is
Right here we may as well men
tion that tax payer's figures are not
very reliable. For instance he says:
Tiie proposed improvements al
ready vcted by the council "Will
amount to about $11,000. Add this
to $14,000 shoit for runninc expen-
1 tcs, and you have a debt of $25,000
' to lap over on the levy of 1875.
This calculation is based upon the
that the whole $11,000
comes out of the city treasury;
whereas half of that sum will be
paid by the property owners on the
streets where the improvements are
made. The Bee concedes that the
policy of drawing money out of the
geueral fund for public improve
ments is Injudicious. The money
for such enterprises should be raised
bv long time and low inteiest
bonds, and we believe the people
will cheerfully vote them when
they are made acquainted with the
objects in view.
The spirit of the slaveholders'
rebellion seems still to be rampant
in some portions of the south. "An
attempt was made on the 4th of
July to pull down the United States'
flag at a celebration of a grange at
Limestone, East Tennessee. Those
making the attempt were ex-Confederates,
as might be supposed.
The Jlcrald and Tribune, of Jones
borough, gives a lengthy account
of the affair, in which it states that
'there was a time in the history of
Fast Tennessee when to display the
American flag, or even to have it in
possession, was considered by a cer
tain class fraught with danger to
the guilty persons. But that time
passed, and the old flag was
exhumed from its many
hiding-places and thrown to the
breeze, and from the Carolinas to
the western extremities of the na
tion the national emblem floated
free, and all parties acknowledged
its supremacy. It was hoped that
the spirit of treason and rebellion
was forever dead, and that the
monster Secession would never
again riise its buried head and dis
close Its hideous features to the
Award of tho Indian
The Secretary of the Interior,
Commissioner of Indian Affairs and
the Board of Indian Commission
ers, acting cojointly, have made the
following awards for the contracts
for "Western supplies, during the fis
cal year to June 30, 1875 : Contract

A 3Tev7 Telegraph Company Con
templated. The New York Post says :
For some time past it has been
known that an effort was making to
establish a new telegraph company,
and it is now reported that the ne
gotiations to this end have been
nearly completed. Ave have been
uuabfe to obtain full particulars in
regard to the scheme, but hear that
three of the railroad companies
running the principal trunk roads
from tiie Atlantic seaboard to
the West (exclusive of the
New Ytrk Central propose to build
telegraph lines over their roads, and
such roads as they control, for a new
telegraph company, which will take
these lines on a 999 year lease. The
railroad companies, in consideration
cr having free use of the telegraph
lines, are to keep them in re
pair. The instrument used is
to be that of the Automatic Compa
ny, aud it is .claimed that the new
company will be able to reduce the
cost of conveying messages by tele
graph from one-quarter to one-half
the present rates. .Mr. Peter H.
Watson, of the Erie Railway, has
been mentioned as "president of the
new company, and it is said that
this isHhe secret for his reeent re
fusal to accept another election as
president of the Erie. We have
been unable to learn whether there
is any connection between this pro
ject and the new Atlantic cable
which the Faraday is now laying.

Special Correspondence of Tn Eee-1
Seward, July 13.
Editob Bee :
When visiting this place seven
years ago next January, on the
town site was to be found only one
log house, occupied and owned by
Lewis Moffet, and near all the land
around was owned by the Govern
ment; the location was so far from
Omaha, Plattsmouth an J Nebraska
City, it was considered of little
value, and scarce worth homestead
ing on account of its being so far
from market, mills and other nec
essary conveniences, and the prin
cipal trading points were Nebraska
City and Plattsmouth, Omaha be
ing on the north side of the Platte
river, wes necessarily cut off on
account of the inconvenience in
crossing that ill-famed stream.
But as immigration came in,
Seward county became more noted,
and the town was laid out in 1868,
by Mr. Moffet, which improved
slowly until 1871, and as the county
demanded a good town, it was fast
populated; all the land was taken
up, a good portion of which was se
lected by the B. & M. R. R. in Ne
braska. April 1st, 1873, the Mid
land Pacific Railroad was complet
ed, and the town began to thrive
aud manv business men came In
from different locations, and launch
ed their commercial barks, many of
whom were engaged in business in
the river towns. Now they are
among the leading business men of
the young and thriving city, which
is well represented in the several
different lijes of business, with
good assorted stocks of merchan
dise. The business part of town Is lo
cated on a high level elevation,
which is slightly undulating in
every direction, making the loca
tion one of tne most sightly in the
county, which can be seen for
many miles around, and from
which the beautiful rolling prairies,
wjth well improved farms, which
will attract the oye of admiration
and lovers of scenery, where the
fields are covered with golden grain,
which can be seen waving in the
distance, now represents wealth,
progress and prosperity.
When first here it required five
days to make a trip to the principle
trading point and return with a
team, now only one day is required
to bring hundreds of tons, in per
fect safety, with much less expense,
As it will loubtless be of Interest
lo your readers to know the amount
of business done by rail, I give the
following statement, which is taken
from the books of the Missouri
Pacific Railroad, and given mo by
the kindness of Mr. H. A. Thomas,
their agent, since April 1st, 1873:
There has been received at this
place, 520 cars of merchandise, 618
cars of lumber, 153 cars of coal, 56
of household goods, 65 of imple
ments, 100 of brick, stone and lime,
and 50 of miscellaneous freight,
making a total of 1,562 cars of
.freight to date. Amount shipped
"from this place, 1,043 cars of wheat
and other grain, and 272 cars of
stock, hogs, merchanisc, and other
miscelloneous freight, making a
total of 1,315.
Seward will have several good
buildings erected this year. There
are two brick builaings in course of
erection, which will be completed
coon one for a bank and one for
business houses or merchandise.
The town has Ave lumber yards,
more than is usually found in a
town of this size, but as they supply
a vast amount of territory, which
t they will doubtless have a good
The Mohawk yard, formerly of
Nebraska City, was moved here
some time since and have been do
ing a good business. Mess. P. J.
Grank & Co., of Lincoln, also have
a yard here, under the manage
ment of Mr. Burns, who has been
in their employment for some time
with marked success. Messrs. Gard
ner & Butterfield, formerly of Crete,
Aeb., opened a yard in June, who
have now on hand the largest stock
of lumber in the city. They have re
ceived about 800,000 feet of lum
ber. Their cash sales for the last
twenty days have been about four
thousand dollars, notwithstanding
the dull season for sales and the
competition of old established yards.
They buy their lumber from the
manufacturers, and doubtless h
as good rates of freight as any lum
ber dealer in tho west. Mr. Gard
ner is interested in the pineries, and
Mr. Butterfield attends to the sales.
They are wide awake business men,
and are selling on short margin for
cash, aud by such have won a wide
known reputation in the west.
Seward has at present only two
church buildings, the Baptist and
Prosbj-terian ; but the Methodist
will build a brick church this sum
mer. The town is well represented
with schools, and they are miking
arrangements to build a large school
house this fall.
The town has two hotels, the Blue
Valley and Tuttle House, besides
several boarding houses.
Messrs. Little, Brock & Co. ore
building a large elevator, which
will be completed in time for the
approaching harvest It has all the
conveniences necessary for a first
class elevator, with scales to weigh
the grain when received, and one of
Fairbanks scales, with hopper,
which has a capacittyof 5,000 bush
els, or 30,000 pounds. It will only
require a few moments to load a car,
which can be done easily from the
hopper where the grain is weighed.
The elevator has a capacity of 50,000
Tho wheat crop this season will
far exceed that of any previous year,
but the yield will only be about two
thirds of a crop in the centre and
eastern parts of the, country. The
shipments of grain from this place
will be immense this year, as Sew
ard is the only station convenient
for many miles North and West, as
well as South.
The town has two livery and feed
stables. Mr. E. Atwater, one of
the oldest citizens of the county,
has a good stable and is one of the
most accommodating business men
of his business, who takes pleasure
in attending to the wants of his pat
rons. Edward Mclntyre, one of the
oldest employes of the B. & M. R.
R. in Nebraska, in the land depart
ment, is selling land rapidly ; he is
early ana' late and always busy in
the interest of the companv.
