TAXATION AND SEWERS.
THE BEE has no sympathy with a
mistaken economy which would sacri
fice a human life for the sake of sav
ing a few dollars in taxation. It be
lieves that one of the strongest In
ducements to settlers In a new com
munity is the knowledge of its healthfulness -
fulness and proner drainage. While
capitalists may ask as the first ques
tion , "What are your rates of taxa
tion ? " heads of families are likely first
of all to Inquire "what Is you rate
of mortality ! " No one doubts the
fact that sewerage is an indispensible
necessity for a city the size of Omaha.
In the northern and southern portions
of our city are two creeks along whose
banks hundreds of children breathe
poisoned air. These localities , as
shown by the health reports of the
city physician , are deadly to infant
life. Between their banks flows
a slimy mass of filth and
driinage which poisons the atmouphere
adjacent and during the past year has
borne death and sorrow to many a
household.- The value of property
abng the North and South Omaha
- crocks is seriously affected by this
fait. Fathers of families hesitate to
raat in their neighborhood. Were i
not for the scarcity of houses in thi
city many already occupied would bi
vacant. Public safety as wel
as the financial interests o I
. the city demand that theee creek
should ba sowered. Any prating on
economy when human health is at
stiko is criminal. A few thousands of
dollars distributed by tax on 30,000 )
people Is trifling when compaicd with
IB tha value of a single human life.
Wnethor Omaha needs at once a
complete and extensive sewerage
system is a fit matter for public dis
cussion. There can bo no discussion
about the necessity of completing
what work has been begun , and mak
i- ing it possible to continue the work

The past year has boou an unusually
prosperous one for railroads. Their
business has been immensely enlarged
and their earnings increased. Very
many hive come put of a condition of
insolvency or serious financial embar

favorable condition of these corpora
tions is the result of great business
activity and general prosperity.
The power of the state to enforce
proper regulations upon common car-
riars to prevent extortion and unjust
discrimination , and provide for public
sifoty , is now established and admit
ted. Ic has been recognized and af
firmed by tha highest courts in the
rand. In the exercise of this power ,
in the light of tha experience of older
communities as well as our own , the
necessity of a tribunal like tbe rail
road and warehouse commission is
now generally recognized. Through
their agency the relations between the
public and the railways are becoming
better understood , and many evils
have been reformed. I hope that ,
under the influence of public opinion ,
enlightened by the decisions of the
courts the railroads wiil
, adopt such a
policy as mill make their relations with
the public entirely harmonious.

ANNUAL MESSAGE OP GOVERNOR PER
KINS , OF CALIFORNIA ,
Steam transportation , both by
ailroad and ocean carriage , acquires
ear by year argumontod importance ,
increased facilities of transportation
jy rail has developed a vast inland
lommerce , supplementing and in-
raasing the commercial intercourse
of nations. Transportation has be
come the leading economic science of
ho age , and is f < st solving many of
the meat difficult problems in the
cience of political economy. Through
ho improved facilities for transporta
tion the products of all portions of
; ho earth are being brought into moro
immediate exchange , and thus the
wealth producing resources of al1
countries are becoming the common
inheritance of mankind. This new
aad constantly argumenting force is
bringing into close competitive rela
tion the industrial products of all
- soils aud climates. The breadstuff
produced in hitherto remDtepirta of
the world reach the great centres of
population and consumption at a cost
of tr.insportation so inconsiderable aa l
to almost eliminate wholly the element
of distance. Two days proceeds of |
labor at the averagerato of machanics'
wages in England to-day will pay the
coat of transportation to that coun
try on a yearly supply of breadstuff's
and meat for an individual from the
fertile and productive Mississippi val
ley. Measured by relative availabil-
ty , the grain fields of the great west
are nearer to tbe inhabitants of Lon
don to-day than the food supplies pro
duced fifty miles from that city were
at the beginning of h.is century.
Such intimacy of communication sub
jects the relative productive advanta
ges of all civilized countries to the se
verest tests of competition. Railroad
transportation is now a necessity
, modern civilization , and is fast be
coming one of its leading , controlling
and directing forces. It is readjusting
the centres of population , and chang
ing the seat of wealth 'and empire.
That a force , influencing to this do-
degree the interests of the men and
the affairs of states could have adjus
ted itself to interests that had grown
out of the old order of conditions , was
not to be expected. The issues thai
have arisen in the progress of this ad
