Two years ago when the taxpayers
rjf Omaha and Douglas county rose in
revolt against the attcmptof the U. P.
monopoly to force a gang oj
their henchmen upon this com-
muuitv as their representative in the
legislature , a mass meeting was hcl < 3
at the Academy of Music , which
honored Mr. Geo. W. Doane bycaHing
him to ibe its chairman. Upon the
BtBgo with'Mr. Doano were a majority
of thoUeaaing mcrchanlfi and manu
facturers of this city. The meeting
nraa very orderly , and 'addresses wore
made by some of the most respectct
.citizens of Omaha. The next day
the Omaha Rtpublican opened its muc
batteries on Mr. Doane for daring to
prsaido over a public meeting of tax
payers. From that day to this tbe
monopoly henchmen have not forgot
ten him. His nomination to the state
senate ia opposition to Coutant lias
aroused their wrath and they taun
him wilh the grave crime of havin
favored the citizens' movement of tvr <
years ago , which , in their opiumon ,
disqualifies him from representing tin
people of Douglav county in the ncx
Tin ; recent convention in Chicagi
which organized the National Farmers
Alliance of the United States has at
tr.icted much attention both from
railroads and their organs , and fron
producers who see in the movetnen
oome .hops of an early release from
their troubles. The convention has
naturally awakened a howl of indigna
tion from the braes collar brigade
throughout the country. They imme
diately began their old tactics of en
daavoring to blacken the character o
its members , and assailed them am
theirlollowers as grangers and com
mmiiets wlio dared to raise their voice
against the rights of "aggregated
capital. " People were informed tha
railroa3t had made the west and
changed desert Into a garden. Thej
woroto1d4hat the "railroads alon
render the products of tb
aoil fof tangible value , " pro
viding -a market for produce am
uvoimes of trade for business men.
A halfciruth is often more dangerous
than an 'open ' falsehood. While no
one will deny ihat the railroads have
been of immeHse n3vahtago "to the
producers , most men will insist on
looking on the other side of the ques
tion. : , The producers have brought
the railroads into-existence , in many
cisej'"built the roads by bonds
oviod on their own property and now
Hiipport it by their produce , travel and
tratlic. fTo some thinkers it may also
appear that too products of the
grangers lauds alone render the rail
roads of tangible value in many cases ,
and the fact may also bs suggested
that nothing haB uch an important
influence on railroad securities as tLc
pcml-annual crop report. The railroads
auust look at the issue fr < m
"both sides. They cannot afford any
longer to ignore the mutuality of ben-
uGts which exists between thorn and
the producers. The people are begin
ning to awaken to the urgent necessi
ty of immediate legislative action. It
is not alone tbe grangers who arc
foremost in agitating the subject. The
merchants of New York are making
the question of freight tariffs and rail
road discrimination an important Issue
in the present campaign. The slander
imd calumny of the railroad organs
vill predispose no honorably minded
person to cast his influence on the side

fcELF-OO N VICTED.
E K. Valentino liad a very large
ludienco at the Omaha Academy of
Music Tuesday night. A largo ma-
ority had come thera to hear what he
lad to say in defense of his disreputa-
> ! e record. They came away con
vinced that E. K. Yalentine had no
defense to make , because the charges
igainst him could not be successfully _
disproved. It was to have been ex
pected that Valentine , who represents
; hiscommonwealthincongce sandwho
now seeks re election , would at least
refer briefly to his public services ;
that he would endeavor to vindicate
bis back pay grab , and try to con
vince his constituents that he is
worthy of their confidence. This is
certainly what the people , whose en
dorsement Valentine eeekshad a right
to expect In this they were dis
appointed. Valentine confinedJiim-
self entirely to the discussion
of the national party issues. Upon
these great issues the fifty thousand
republicans of Nebraska are all agreed.
The fundamental principles of the
republican patty and the merits of its
candidates for the presidency have be
came household words in Nebraska.
The hundred and thirty republi
can papers of Nebraska have thrown
more light on the national issue every
week than Valentino could shed upon
it if he made ten speeches a day for
the remainder of his lifo and
lived to become as old as Methusalch.
What the people wanted and what
they had a right to demand of their
congressman is an an explicit defini-
rlion of his position on the matters
that conoarn their welfare. They
wanted io hoar from his lips a denial
of the grave charges of corruption
and jobbery that confront him in the
c-jlumns of THE BEE. They wanted
to hear him define his position on the
pledge made by the convention that
re-nominated him , to legislate in con
gress agnjnst abuses and extortions by
railway corporations. On all these
vital Issues Valentine remained as
mum as an oyster , and the verdict of
the people who heard him is that he
stands sclf-convjcted of all that has
boon charged against him.
ENEMIES AND FRIENDS.
The position taken by the managers
of the railway monopolies as defined
by their organs is , that every man
who favors the legislative restriction
of railways , every man who opposes
tbe exemption of railroad property
from taxation , and every man who re
fuses to become the mere vassal of
these corporations , is an enemy to the
railroads. They go futther oven than
that. They denounce and placard
every editor who doesn't wear the
brass-collar , every public man who ro- '
Jus2s to obey their dictations , as pub-
cremies , plotters against the public
good , incendiaries nnd communists.
The managers of monopolies in this
section , pursue the Eamo tactics pursued
with this exception that in the west
they wo more insolent , overbearing
and tyrannical. When the New York
chamber of commerce last year , after
pushing an investigation into the
abuses and extortionate discrimina
tion of the trunk lines centreing in
that city , demanded legislative re-
s'rictions that would curb the greed
os the Gould's Vanderbilt's and
Scott's , the railroad organs in Xew
York and elsewhere , denounced the
merchants of Now York as a body of
communists. A few weeks ago the
National Farmers' Alliance met in
Chicago and adopted resolutions de
manding the regulation of interstate
cjnnncrca by congrets and the enact
ment of Jlaws by the various state
leuialaturcs that would compel the
railways to deal fairly by
all their patronsthey wore blackguard
ed as fauaticul grangers and enemies
of the country's progress If one
could believe the railroad oracles , this
country would still have been a great
desert if it had not been for the fos
tering care of the Jim Pisks , Jay
Goulds and other railroad wreckers.
Now , wo apprehend that the capital
ists of the world , who mean to earn a
fair and reasonable profit for their in
vestments , would supply this country
with all the railroads she needs if the
stock gamblers , who wish to accumu
late millions in a few years , were all
dead. But why do these monopolies
brand every mar who insists on rea
sonable rates , and equitable taxation
of all property , and oppoecs discrimi
nation and favoritism , as an enemy
of the railroads ?
"Would a man who opposes discrim
ination and uufairncss in the postal
service be an enemy of the government ?
The people of the United States under
the acis of congress pay internal reve
nue duties on certain articles of mer
chandise. Would any merchant who
demanded tlio same taxation on his
merchandise that was given to mer
chants in a like business , bo a traitor
to his country , a communist and an
enemy to the public welfare ? Are not
the public hishwayschartered ; by con
gress , and the various legislatures , as
much public carriers as the postal ser-
rice and is a man less a patriot be
cause ho insists upon fair deal
ing and laws that will. guar
antee fair treatment to all
the patrons of the railways ? There
are millions of men in America who
think upon this subject just as we do.
They recognza the value of railroads
as agents of civilization , necessary to
tbo development of our resources.
They , in common with us , have no de
sire to cripple the railroads , embarass
their proper management as public
carrions or check their extension
through every part of our national do-
msin. They are , however , decidedly
opposed to the
establishment of a
railroad empire within the American
republic. They reeiat the dictum of
railway kings , whoso wealth has
been wrung out of the hard
earnings of the producers of the
country , who they now seek to dis
The people who think with
Cs , and they comprise all the people
excepting the cohorts of the railroads
and their dirty tools , are not enemies
of the railways , but they simply iueist
: hat the'railroads shall not arrogate to
themselves the right to dictate who
ihall govern the country , who shall
make our laws and who shall sit as
udges over us. The people of Ne
braska will never submit to have this
iate transformed into a mere pro-
ince of Jay Gould like the territory
of Wyoming , where the people are
mere vassals and where no man
darea to become & can
didate , from constable to
congressman , who hasn't sworn alle-
fiance to the monopolies. The great
body of our people arc agriculturists
who draw their sustenance from the
soil and do not depend ou the favors
of railroad princes , but will Insist up
on having their rights even if they
li vc to incur the displeasure of the
editors whose names appear on the
payrolls of Jay Gould's railroads.
THE Republican thinks that Valen
tine's speech in the Academy of Mus
ic , was a surprise even to his friends.
We may remark , in passing , that it
was a still greater surprise to his ene
mies. They thought he would itt least
make some attempt to explain away
the damning charges , which have been
made against his character , and the
proofs of which are matters of rec
ord. But the valorous Valentine
thought discretion was the better part
VALENTINE was death on southern
frauds and eloquent on the national
issue , but ho didn't seem to be anxious
to explain why ho swindled John
Bush out of his homestead or de

sum of § 1875 for back pay.

Valentine's Back Pay Steal
Ventilated by the
How He LobbiedaBogus Claim
for $1875 Through the
Legislature Under False
Five years ago this summer E. K.
Valentine who had been removed-by
U. S Grant from the West Point land
office for crookedness , packed the re
publican convention of the .sixth ju-
licial district and secured for himself
the nomination of district judge. Yal
? ntine was a mere shyster , having no
better standing at the bar than the
redoubtable quack Mumey had among
the member * of the medical profession.
When the returns , wore canvassed by
the state officers who constitute the
state board of canvassers , the board
awarded the certificate of election to
Thomas L. Grifley , the democratic can
didate. Valentine procured a batch
of affidavits to show that there had
been tome irregularity in .iho count.
He then secured the cervices of John
C. Gowin , who agreed and stipulated
in advance that he would
prosecute his claims before
the courts without charge.
The case was brought to trial before
the supreme court in November 1876 ,
nnd the court rendered the somewhat
extraordinary decision that E. K. Val
entino Ind been elected judge of the
sixth judicial district by a majority of
two votes and a lnf. ! Valentino soon
hereafter took his seat on the bench
and drew his pay regularly from the
etato fr'asuryat the rate of § 2563 a
year during thn entire time he served
as judge. In he slimmer of
1878 , E. K. Valentine was
foisted on the people of Nebraska
by the political managers of Jay
Gould for their representative in con
gress. Within sixty days after his
election to congress Valentino put in
an appearance at Lincoln as a. lobbyist
before the legislature , and by bring
ing all his pressure to bear upon re
publican members who had axes to
grind , and roping in the democratic
friends cf Griffey , Valentino succeed
