Ally emended ttt the pro-sent uctjsion
The Nebraska Farmers Alliance
meets to-day at Hastings in special
session for the purpose of discussing
the interests of the producers of this
ntato and the dangers which threaten
their property and development.
Chief among the topics which will bo
considered is the transportation qtics
tion. Our farmers will endeavor to
discover why Nebraska monopolies
are enabled to ohargo from twenty-five
to fifty per cent , more for the trans
portation of freight and paisongors
than the railroads of Iowa , who are
responsible for the plain evasions of
the railroad law of the state , why the
railroads nro practically exempt from
taxation and on what grounds the
monopoly nmnngors refuse to take out
patents for their unsold lands ,
Those subjects afford ample field
for discussion. They are the most
mporfnnt nllecting the producers of
ho state. Kvory farmer who sells or
iuys , who ships a load of corn or
inrchascs a pound of proviftions is
itally interested in their debate ,
Vlien half the earnings of our pro-
lucent is extorted for making those
'arningi available , it becomes sheer
onfiscation. Cheap transportation at
iresent I'D the most vital necessity to
) ur producers. How to obtain it
s the great ipiOHtion. Our legislature
las nfllrmcd its right to regulate the
ailroads of this state by passing the
) < iano law. That law properly in-
erproted and appl icd is n long step in
10 right direction and in its osson-
lal features embodies tha resu'ta ' of
' 10 best and most effective lawn on the
abject in other states. The attempts
f the monopolies to mnko its opera-
ion obnoxious to our people will cor-
, ainly not result in its repeal or pro-
out the producers of this state from
urthcr legislation which will secure
o them nmplo protection from corpo-
ate greed. What Nebraska needs
a thorough awakening throughout
or farmer clement to the necessity
taking nn active interest in politics ,
'his the Alliance is rapidly bringing
ut. And just as soon ns every pro-
iicer in this state refuses to cast his
ote for any man who is not known
> bo in sympathy with hia views , the
attlo will bo quickly decided.
It is largely with the object of per-
ocitim ; their organization that thn
roHont Hcsmon of the Farmers' Alii-
nco has convened. The movement
ogun ncarcoly a year go 1ms spread
itli n rapidity which shows how fully
, in in accord with the sentiments of
ur ngricultutnl clasi. Tt will also bo
trongly supported by thousands of
oters who do not pursue farming for
livelihood , but who Buffer from
lie same class of abuses which our
iirmors have decided to endtiro no
Secretary Kirkwood has drawn up
bill having for its object the im-
rovomont of the Indiana , and the
resident has submitted the mea < iuro
o congress. The bill provides for the
[ ipointment of three commissioners ,
/ho are to bo employed in visiting
itch tribes as the president may dos-
, 'iiiito , to ascertain the si/.o of their
esorvations , and to outer into ngroe-
lents with thu Indians for a rednc-
ion of reservations in all cases where
t may bo to their interest. Wherever
null agreements are made the ceded
ands are to bo surveyed , and , when
old , the money , after deducting the
xpcnsos of survey , is to bo placed to
ho credit of the Indians. Under the
ill the diminished reserves are to bo
ecurud to the Indians by patents ,
luia giving them pormunent owner-
hip , except in cases of allotment in
ovoralty in their tribal capacity ,
'rovisiou \ made for the alblment
if land in severally , and if it in proved
hat the Indian has cultivated the so-
octod ton acres provided by the bill ,
t will bo patented to him , and the
cost of improvements to the extent of
$100 in each case will bo defrayed by
ho government from the price of thu
Hiirrendorod Innds. The proceeds of the
nales of surrendered lands are to be ox-
> ended under the direction of the
lecrotary of the interior in the orec
ion of houses , purchase of hones ,
mrnoss , cattle , farming imrlomonts ,
and in the building of school houses
ind the Hupi/ort of teachers. The
/ill directs the commission , in CASOS
where it is not deemed advisable to
reduce reservations , to enter into an
igroemont for the survey of bounda
ries and of all lands embraced therein ,
and to convoy allottmonts in severally ,
The commisHion is also autliori/ed t <
negotiate for the cession of entire
reservations and the removal of the
Indians to others , and the money for
which such coded reservations nml !
be sold is to bo expanded for the In
dians on their now reserves , Anothe
feature of the bill is to provide bj
treaty for paying Iho Indians within i
limited period after the passage of th
act the principal of all trust fund
now hold by the government on the !
account. Still another feature is th
gradual reduction of annual appn
priatinn for Indians , until in th
neur future , when the tribes shal
become nolf-nupporting , tlu > y wi
wholly cease ,
The bill appealB to have been care
fully drawn , but will doubtless oxcit
considerable diicussion. The powers
with which the conimis ionors ar
lothcd .ire very extensive , and such
) ewers in the hands ol a class of men
ho have heretofore made a hand-
omo livelihood out of the nations
wards could bo turned to even greater
isadvantago so far ns the tribes are
oncerned than under the ( .resent
ystem. Other portions of the bill
ccm to have been prepared RO as to
guard well the rights and interests
portainifig to the Indians.
WHAT could government do for the
mblic advantage , ns to the cost of
transportation , more than has boon
[ one by the railroad managers thorn *
elvprf' Mr. Reagan and other mom *
H.-IS of congress who are anxious to
nako the control of railways by the
ovcrnmcnt the vital and controlling
BBIIO in polities may well consider
his question in the light of reo-nt
vonts. For seven months tbo trunk
inc malingers have been voluntarily
jiving to the public the cheapest rail-
vay transportation ever known. Then
vnr ngaiml each other , which began
line 15 , has involved in greater
r less degree nearly all
ho important connecting lines
mtwecn the North Atlantic and the
'a Hie coasts , and has caused a'urcat
eduction of rnUs on all lines. It is
irobably within bounds to say ( hat
lie charges for transportation , within
.ho past seven months , have bc n nt
cast 8100,000,000 less than tlmy
vould have been at the ates prevail *
ng prior to this eonllict. This is j.
mndsonie present to the producers
nd consumers of the country. Can
t bo supposed that the government ,
ind it the exclusive control of rnil-
ends , would be equally anxious to
nrich the public at its own expense ?
[ Now York Tribune ,
And what guarantee have the patens -
ons of the trunk line roads that the
ow rates caused by the cut-throat war
f the managers will be maintained ?
t is a notorious fact that every war
n rates is followed by n corresponding
ncreaso in the tariff just an soon as
10 managers have patched up a truce ,
'ho argument that railroads unregu-
atod by law fight at intervals and re-
uco their extortionate demands to
omething like reason , and that on
lis account the } ' should not bo ro-
Lricted is the sheerest bosh , Rcgu-
ation of railroads by the gov-
rnment will secure nn equality
i rates on through freiuhts and
upplomented by local regulation in
lie various states will force a uniform
nd low tariff for nil patrons. All the
orces of a legitimate competition on
nterstato commerce will still continue
i operation with the only difference
ml the country at largo will not b'e
eft at the mercy of the whims and
; reed of thu stock gamblers and mo-
opoly kings ,
TUB appearance of small pox in our
ity has been followed by a very gon-
ral vaccination of our citizens. Still ,
ccording to the reports of the vari-
us physicians there are n largo num-
> or who have not taken this very nee-
asary precaution against the spread
f a loathsome and dangerous disease.
Upon such THK BKI : urges immediate
accinntion. No person in Omaha
ho has not been vaccinated within
liroo years should delay for a moment
i submitting to the operation. Med-
cal authorities differ as to the length
f time for which vaccina-
ion is operative , but no medical
uthority denies that vaccination
s a certain remedy against the spread
f the small-pox. There are now live
veil defined cases of the disease in
Dinalm. Ono death has already taken
> laco. It is impossible to say how
nnny others will happen within the
loxt few weeks. The National Heart
f Health has declared
small-pox epi-
oniic throughout the country , am
eport the disease as especially viru *
out. While our eily authorities an
aking every precaution to isolate the
nfectod localities , every citizen
hould nuke himself a lurrior against
hesproidof the disease , to protect nol
nly his own life but the lives of his
loighbors. This can only be done bj
poedy vaccination.
( iKx. CiitA.NT may have retired from
lolitics but there are some very sug-
; ostivo indications to the contrary.
In a speech which ho delivered before
.ho California pioneers' banquet at

following : " 1 am sorry thaton former
occasions when 1 was invited to meet

and Inwyer-liko presentation of Dr.

trial , by Prof. Austin Bierbower
who shows the \veakncss and dangers
of the Methodist Church , as well ns
its possibilities and opportunities.
The case of Dr Thomau has forot
itself upon public attention as a ques
tion touching the rights of private in
dividuals and the tendencies of ju
dical invoatiuations. Prof. Biorbower
openly and freely makes the charge
that all the rights secured oven by the
common law and the ordinary right
of any person upon trial were disregarded

arrangement nf the jury , and the re
