THE republican central committee
of Alabama have published an address
to the country protecting in bitter lan
guage against the outrageous fraud
which robbsd the party of 20,000 ma
jority in that state and returned 70 ,
000 majority for the democrats. The
showing is a most damning one as an
exhibit of southern political methods.
ACCORDING to the Republican a ma
jority of the county committee with
drew from the room and left the mi
nority to conduct the business of the
committee. This is the first instance
we over heard of a majority running
away from a minority when they had
the power at any time to assert them-
salvos by voting tha minority down.
IK view of these
two facts the protesting -
testing republicans decided to avail
themselves of such representation in
the county committee as they could
properly secure. [ Republican.
What brazen hypocrisy ! The names
of the U. P. minority show on their
fae what were the proper means used
to secure what the brass collared brl-
g ido thought were a majority of the
committee. Their plot , which they
f'oaght had been kept secret , was ex
posed early in the day by a member
wf the committee , who was offered § 75
for his vote or proxy in the meeting.

THF BATTLE FOB REFORM.
It is impossible to please those who
will not be pleased. It is useless to
hope by csncESsions tcfappeaso a. fac
tion who" are opposed to anything
short of complete and 'unconditional
surrender. The republican cen
tral committee at its meeting ,
Monday afternoon , proved clearly
enough that nothing but complete
surrender of principle could satisfy
the hireling cormorants , who there
sought to purchase iho opportunity
to capture the committee , and
undo the work of reform , hich is
being applauded by all good republi
cans throughout the state. Although
no prolest against the rules adopted
for the regulation of primaries had
ever bean presented-to the committee ,
although they had"no'other knowledge
of the existence of such a protest tx-
cepting through the unbacked asser
tions ol the Omaha Republican , al
though no remonstrance from members
of the party had been made to it , the
central committee , for the * sake of
hannonyand in the vaiu endeavor to
remove party disaffectionvoluntarily ,
abandoned every portion of their pro
ject which could be distorted to indi-
cits partisanship and retained only
tto essence of a system whose object
is to purge the party primaries of
fraud and corruption.
Of w hat , now , can any honest re
publican complain , however bitter his
personal enmity or factional partisan
ship ? Xo republican , known as such ,
will ba disenfranchised. Registration
will be completed , but completed
so as to leave no shade of
excuse lor any hint of unfairness.
The judges and clerks of election
will be appointsd by the whole com-
mitte ; the judges and clerks of elec
tions will isaue the credentials of the
elected candidates which will be pre
sented to the county convention. '
That convention will nominate its
own temporary chairman. It will
decide all contests , but will not , of
c ui 3 , recognize any contestants
outbids of its own regulation ? . Can I
anything be freer from taint of suspi
cion of personal aggrandizement. No
known republican will offer his vota
at the polls in the city
and bo rejected. The unknown re
publicans have no right to grumble if
they have not identified themselves
with the part } * by applying for
tration or by joining a republican
club. They cannot complain at-their
own voluntary disiranchisement.
Under the provisions of the central
committee the rights of all republi-
cms are eacredly guarded. In the
coming primary elections the majority
of the party will , for tha first time in
Douglas county , have the right to
voice their wishes. The rabble ,
repeaters and imported voters
will be rigidly excluded. No
decent man can possibly object to
that. No reasonable man , no honor
able man can object to the restric
tions imposed. Only a corporate
monopoly that has ruled the party by
fraud and corruption , a faction
ready to desert the party whenever it
findsjit cannot rule it stands to-day
as an objector and tries to sow diisen *
Eton in the ranks of those who are
b titling for primary reform. Repub
licans all over Nebraska have en
dorsed the movement for party purifi
cation. Hen , to whom' the success of
the party is of far higher import than
the success of any faction , men who
cannot be bribed by money or
bought by salaried offices , have come
forward in hearty praise of the move
ment. Carried out with the cooperation
tion of honest and loyal republicans ,
the primaries will no longer be a
stench in the nostrils of the city. The
reform inaugurated in Omaha will be
emulated in every csunly in the state
by all parties before another years ex
pires. Public sentiment , once :
aroused , will demand the enactment
of laws to protect the ballot at the
primaries , liuarded by the mantle of
law , and shielded from the assaults of
muscle and pocket book , the prima
ries will then at length be the free
and unrestricted expression of party
sentiment , and the nominees of the
republican party will be those which
the people , who have dictated them ,

In the center of the countyythe

Grass on the prairies is not as

Associated capital has many advant
ages over the individual r.nd particu-
laily of v.ho individual of small means.
Especially is this so with respect to
favorable legislation. Railroad com-
piuics enjoy , perhaps , the greatest fa
cilities in this respect , and have gen
erally met with the greatest success of
any class of associated capital.- Pass
ing through a largo extent of country
whose local interests are , in a great
measure , dependent upon the policy
and action of the corporation it is but
natural for communities
to make con
cessions , even.in excess of the benefits
But it is with legislative bodies !
that theno corporations are most suc
cessful. There are so many ways by '
which members are placed in friendly
relations with the
company ; so many
courtesies extended which cost the
company nothing bat which are valuable -
able to the receiver , that at the end
of a session it generally turns out that
the railroads have fared better than
the people at the hands of the latter's
The last Nebraska
no exception to the general rule in
this respect. Not only was all legia :
lation looking to the protection of the
people from excessive charges by the
railroads defeated under the lead LOBf
farmer Howe , of Nemaha , but a law
was passed which virtually exempts Bffr
Isrgc amount of railroad property
from taxation. This law provides
that all depots , round houses , machine
shops , etc. , shall be included in the
general assessment of the road at so
much per mile , the value being '
fixed by the state board of
equalization. Formerly this local
property was assessed by the precinct
assessor the same as other property
found In the precinct , and was in ad
dition to the general assessment of
the road andjrolling stock. That the
rate per miie is any greater : han it
would have been under the old law is ,
we think , very unlikely. The assess
ment of the St. Joe & Western road
in this county at less
than 4000 per
mile strengthens this view. But even
if this property were assessed S
high as it ought to be , and as high as
it would be under the old law , it is
unjust in anotner respect. Instance
the town of Grand Island , which
voted $50,000 in consideration of
having machine shops erected there.
Instead of being added to the assess
ment roll of that precinct and city to
help sustain the local government , g
is distributed all along the line of the
road. North Platte , by the same act ,
is deprived of a , large revenue which
justly belongs to her. Likewise Oma
ha , which also made largo donations
for everything it got and many things
it didn't get.
It may be said th t the benefits de
rived from the presence of the shops ea ,
etc. , are so that
great the towns have
no right to complain. The same plea :
would exempt factories , machine
shops , mills , etc. , from taxation alto
gether. Property should bo laxed
where found. The
duty of protecting '
the property devolves on the local
authorities , and the property within
their jurisdiction should contrib
ute toward the expense of i10
doing. The shops are located at par
ticular points not for the benefit rjf
those towns , but for the convenience
of the company , and ihould be sub I
ject to the same rules as to taxation
that apply toother property.
And again , why did the railroad
companies secure the passage of this
law if they did not thereby secure
some exemption from taxation not ac
corded to the property of individuals ]
The legislature of this state should
enact laws for the benefit of the people
ple of Nebraska as well as for the
benefit of hercorporatons.
Aspects of the Iron Trade.
Among the encouraging features of
the iron trade , which have been re
counted in this joural recently , the
improvement of the demand for Iron
in Great Britain from other sources
than this country ia now growing in
importance. The Increase of the ship
ments of rails from Great Britain
. affords an illustration of this fact.
' While the statistics show that the in
crease in the shipments to the United
States for June was only one-sixth as
compared with those for May , those to
British North America and India
were nearly three times as great , and I
to Australia nearly twica as great.
Add to this the statement of the Lon
don correspondent of Bradstreor's
that for a single week in July 24,000
tons of Middlesbrough iron were ex
ported , and none of it for American
account , and the force of the state
ment that the foreign iron market is
a suminfj a firmer tone , independent
of the United States , will be compre
hended. The necessity of piyinga strict
attention to the condition of the Eng
lish Iron trade has been sharply 1m-
pressed upon the American iron in
terest by its experience of the pist six
month ? . It is , therefore , pleasant to
learn from high English authority ,
corroborafoS'By such faots as those
adduced above , that while England 'n
now sending comparatively little iron
to the United States she is maintain
ing the volume of her exports ; that
other parts of the world are taking
i more of the British iron , and that
1 this 5 ? bona fide business , while thai
_ . ' . .
i - !
American shipments were largely
speculative , and that , all things con
sidered , a healthy development of the
English iron trade m y be expected ,
the turning point of the depression
having been reached.
It is not less comfortable to know
that , while the prospects are favorable
for a steady prosperity to the Iron
trade , the indications are that the
governing influences of the market will
prevent any apecu ative inflation of
values to a point likely to bo burden
some to the consumers of iron. The
capacity of English production now
standing idle , and ready to blow-in
upon a moderate appreciation of prices
there , Is practically unlimited , inas
much as it is in excess of nny probable i
demands. Here , while the supply of
production available for increate is
not so vast , it is still sufficient to exer
cise a wholesome check upon specula
tion or excessive advances. It will be
easy lor the TJniteo States to increase
its production at very short
notice , considering the number
of furnaces now idle , some of
which were in operation six months
ago , while others were just getting
ready to go in when the reaction came.
Any attempt to put up the market to
unreasonable prices will be met by in
creased supplies , both at home and
abroad , and in the light of recent ex
periments , the general sense of the
trade is very strongly opposed to such
It is , therefore , in our view , a very
satisfactory and encouraging aspect of
the iron trade when all the indica
tions point to a largo and active de
mand for theproducts of the domestic
mills and furnaces , and an improving
and hopeful outlook for the English
ironmasters , independent of theircon-
nection with this market ; when the
mills are assured of a steady and per
manent business on a conservative
basis and moderate profits , and when
it not only appears that there is an ac
tive demand for iron , but that there
is also an adequate supply which will
furnish consumers with all they waub
at moderate and reasonable pricesand
exercise a wholesale check upon ex
citement , speculation and infhtion.
All those things point to the conclus
ion that the iron trade is now upon a
sounder , more legitimate and perma
nent basis of prosperity than it has
baen for years past.

Omar D. Conger , of Michigan , is for
