Mo. LAMDEHTflON'H rom&rk that
every mari who how'n ' about the
wronga inflicted by the railroads is a
liar , ia not mooting with a very flat
taring endorsement throughout the
Tne , romonatrance of our loading
merchants and manufacturnra against
the attempt of the Union Pacific to
monopolize all the approaches to our
business center is a gratifying exhibit
of bock bone.
DURINCJ the nine montha ending
November 29 , the Union Pacific sold
75,692 acres of land , at an average of
f 4 93 per acre. This ia a good round
urn for lands "already disposed of"
nnd exempt Irora taxation *

CYRUS W. FIELD is to ercot a § 2-
000,000 building facing the battery
park in New York. This amount rep
resents loss than one-half of Mr
Field's btoals from the stockholders of
the Now York elevated railroads.
Oiiio is never happy unless it ia in
the midst of some political excitement ,
and although two yoars'will elapse before -
fore a successor is to bo chosen to
Senator George Pondleton , a lively
canvaas for the position has begun in
that state. Since Governor Foster's
great atato victory last fall ho has been
considered the certain heir to the
offioo. Lately Mr. Koifor's friends
tave boon at work , and have settled
upon a programme * which will run
Koifer for governor in 1883 , 'and show
his strength in the nUto to the general
assembly , which will then bo ankcd to
elect him to the senate. Mr. Koifor'a
record as speaker will be a poor foun
datiou to base any strong hopes of
success upon when compared to the
unrivalled popularity of Charley Fos
ter. A man who can carry the state
for a second terra ot the governorship
by 25,000 plurality , with a strongly
organized temperance fight against
him , will prove a tough competitor in
any political fight in which h may
ngaged , as Mr. Keifor ii likely to
discover to his sorrow.
CONDUCTOR HANFORD says that on
the train that wus run into at Spuy-
ton Duyvil , through the fault p !
everybody in general nnd nobody in
particular , there were hoventy-sovor
free passes. As the faro from Al
bany to New York IB $3 10 , no the
Now York Central tfc Hupaon River
railroad company waived tha sum of
9238.70 by cairyino ; thcao sovonty-
oyen poisons free of charpo. As the
aid railroad company lias never
claimed to do business for nothing or
oven for fun , the question na
turally is , What did it got or
expect to got for this whole-
aalo dead-heading ! Perhaps it
does not carry aoyonty-Hovon people
free of charge every day ; but the lUth
inst , was the last day of the legislative
week , and many of the fifty or inoto
members from Now Yoik and Jirook-
lyn were on their way homo , accom
panied by lobbyists and "hoolwrs , "
and also by country member ? , whoso
neat pronounced tastes can bu grati
fied in Noiv York with less dimmer of
notoriety than in Albany , Of course
the company never wants anything at
the hands of the legislators , BO tliu
question still remains , What dia it
got or what does it expect for the
eoventy-Boven frco passes ? Now Yorli 1C
TJtero are none so blind as those
who will not sco , The editor of tin
Herald haa evidently never hoard o
railway courtesies , which are extend
ed as freely to legislators , congress
men , judges and state ofllciuls with
out reward or hope of reward , Still
in a recent discussion of the pas
question by Chicago railroad magnate
it was stated that shippers' posse

TH * LATE ALtlANOE MEET.
TOK UHH ho/1 purpoooly refrained
from any extended editorial comment
on the Iflto mooting of the State

nnd to consider measured of political
ccfoim to redress existing abuses.
With a Iwfto attendance from every
section of our state , a clear idea of the
purposes lor which it was called to
gether , and a determination to enter
upon the dUousaion ot no diverting
topics , the results of the mooting were
all that the most sanguine friends of
the fanners of Nebraska could have
desired. The speeches of the mem
bers are well worthy of preservation.
That of Mr. Ingcrfloll , published in
the current numbfr of TUB BKB , is
especially interesting to every tax
payer of the etato who has been
forced to bear an increased bur
den of taxation on account of
tax shirking corporations , aided by

TSB BKE commends Mr. Ingersoll's '

iug and thinking class , whe have opin

press them. A brainier , more evenly
balanced and more sober minded po
litical gathering has never convened
in the state , and the harmony of
their deliberations is strong testimony
to the wideapread and rapidly
growing anti-monopoly sentiment
among our people. Twelve thou
sand voting' farmers enrolled
on the lists of the subordinate Al
liances were roprooonted at the Hust
ings meeting. More than double that
number will bo enrolled during tin
next six montha. Before the next
campaign is upon us the political par

What their aims and principles are

These principles are economically
sound an'1-loKHlly tenable. Tuey have

such men and writers as draw * their

A MARKET HOUSE.
The uropusition of Mr. Webster
Snyder to erect a market hoimo and
city hall on Jefferson square nt a coat
of § 150,000 , which is to revert to the
city at the end of fifty years , utrikeo
us favoaably. Joiforson square is a
central locution , and while it affords
but a sorry substitute for a park , it
will afford all the ground that is
needed for as largo- market house as
may bo found in any other American
When a similar proposition was
made some years ngo by J M. Puttee ,
wo did not commend , partly because
we had grave fears that the market
house would bo a sort of Peter Funk
concern , und partly because we
looked with disfavor on the proposi-
tian to give a notorious speculator
like Pdttoo the monopoly of ourpublio
market. Mr. Snyder does not ask
for a market monopoly , and his es
tablished roputaton is a guaranty Unit
no undue advantage will be taken of
our necessities by extortionate rates.
It will bo eminently proper , howuvor ,
for the council to exoiciso pruduncu
in entering upon n contract
of ouch manifest importance ,
[ f they decide' lo accept Mr.
3nydor'a proposition thuy should oxer-
clou reasonable diligence in providing
[ iropor BivfcgimriU against abuieu and
return Hupemsion over the market
It is hardly necessary to mty what
everybody concedes , that Omnhiv will
derive material benefits from a well
regulated and commodious market
house. Our observation in othci
cjtii * where a city hall was located ii
if the market building , is not favorable
to such a combination mainly bocaust
the great crowds at market house :
generally blockade the entrance to tin
city hall. This in very objoctionabl
when prisoners aio led to and fron
police court and on occasions who :
large numbers of people nro called t
transact business m the city hull.
THE often repeated argument tha
the rich are Hrowing richer in thisag
and the poor poorer draws strong suj
port from the statistics recently put
tithed ot the wealth of American
nillionairrn whose property has been
coumulatcd within the past few
decades. The immense speculations

millions into their private purses hare

Kvory turn of the wheel bringing

to hundreds. The private palaces

The railroad campaign in Nebraska
has already opened. Surveying par
ties are abroad in the land and their
movements area source of lively agita
tion to the people of the several coun
rips in which they are operating. A
few isolated parties ha\o boon loft in
the South Pluttn country as sentinels ,
while thtfmain "army of occupation *
are now on the north side of the riyer
in search of now and rich fields , to con
quer. The Union Pacific Company is
determined to cover the central tier of
counties wich two extensive branch
lines , the Omnha , Niobrara and
Black Hills nnd the Grand Island and
St. Paul branch. The former will bo
pushed directly northwest from Al
bion , through Cedar Valley with the
Black Hills aa the objective point.
The latter will run nearly parallel
with the miiu line through the Mid
dle Loup Valley with the evident in
tention of heading off the B. & M. ,
nnd preventing that company secur
ing a foothold in the north. The vig
ilant malingers of the latter are not
likely to be checkmated or driven
from the field by display of superior
force. The Central Oity branch will
certainly bo pushed north during the
coining summer , .11 the route hns
been partially decided upon. From
Kearney northwest a most inviting
Held presents itself. The oil and iron
Colds of Northern Wyoming , which
are now being developed will soon
furnish a largo nmount of traffic to
the nearest road , whiln the cattle
ranges of the north and west , the
most productive in the country , would
test the carry ing capacity of any road
during summer and > fall. A few
months more will develop railroad
plans of the utmost importance to
Northwestern Nebraska. Those out
lined above are certainties , but the
exact routes and the towns which
they will strike nro matters of con-
Humors are in circulation that a
Ii. & M. surveying party in running a
line through the Elkhorn valley.
They crossed the Union Pacific in the
vicinity of Waterloo recently on their
way north. Diligent inquiry failed
to secure any definite information in
regard to the movement. Those who
could tlirotr light on the subject re-
fuBO to shine. The Tribune assorts
that thu company has already sur
veyed a line from Fremont to Omaha ,
but what advantage the company
would gain by such a stub is not vi i-
bio to the naked eye , unless it sccuros
control ofv the Fremont it Elkhorn
Yalloy road. The linojof the supposed
survey is from u point below liollevuu
on the 1'latto bottom , croaaing thu
Missouri Pacific near Springfield and
the Union Pacific near Waterloo.
This would increase rather than di
minish the distance to Fremont.
In this connection , ThoPlattsmoutli
Enterprise claims to Imvo authority
for the statement that the proposed
line will run from Ashland , on tin
west side of the Flatto river , to Fremont
mont , to connect with the Sioux Citj
& Pacific , It is quito certain that tin
road will bo built over ono of thosi
two routes ,
Another corps of JJ , & M. onginoon

went over the name route afterwards

The Central Branch of the Union
Pacific will bo puihod into Southwest

Tie preliminary nurvoy is now being

ect with the main line of the U. P. ,

nd St. Louis. It is a beggar corpor-
tion f the smallest type , and at the

val railroads. They were not asked
o loson their pursestrings nor mort
age their estates , and consequently
elt they were 'blessed beyond their
ollows. All is vanity. Scarcely
tad they recovered from the holiday
xcitomont when rumors , which have
inco ripened into facts , filled the air
hat a compact had been entered into
jotwoon the Utah & Northern and
ho Northern Pacific by means of
'hich present arid future spoils would
jo amicably divided and the territory
ividod into two great districts , The
apid advance of the narrow guage
nto the heart of the territory by two
ines , forced its pretentious rival to
apitulato and surrender the southern
alf of the territory. This is what
ed the Northern Pacific some time
ago to abandon tha Butte route for
he main line and the selection of the
folona and Mullan Pass route. The
orms of the compact , as near OB can
> o learned , are as follows :
1. The Northern Pacific withdraws
ts projected Butte branoh.
2. The Utah & Northern to com
jloto its extension from Silver Bow to
ho Northern Pacific junction , a dis
anco of thirty-eight miles.
3. The Utah & Northern to extend
ts trunk line to Helena.
4. The Northern Pacific to bo sup-
died with iron for 189 miles of track ,
ver the narrow gauge , delivery to
> ogin May 1st.
It will bo seen by Jhis arrangement
hat the Utah & ' Northern has gained
ivory point contended for , and con-
idorable of a boost in traffic. It
ocures undbputed control of the
llackfoot Valley , whore the principal
ight was made , forcing her antagonist
o withdraw entirely from the field.
iho narrow guago will tap the Northern
Pacific at right angles at two distinct
> oints , cast and west of the Main
lange , which makes possible a
, hroui > h rail route before the close of
; ho year. . It ift strongly intimated
; hat these extensions of the Utah &
Northern will bo triple-railed , to enable -
able the Northern to connect long be-
bra the completion of the Mullan
Pass tunnel. In this respect nt least
t will bo beneficial to the people of
Montana , und it also teaches them the
'ullacy of building great hopes on
'competition" between railroads ,
Dho subdued tone of the press is
ihown in the following extract from
'Tho Threatened Danger , " in The
Butte Minor :

The Yellowstone National Park ,

tourists. A party of St. Paul capi
talists last wookhoraldod their scheme
to build u branch from the Northern
Pacific to tlio park , and their inten
tion to construct hotels und other
pleasure facilities , "provided the gov
ernment guarantees exemption from
competition , " The route of the pro
posed branch lies through a well tim
bered country , und the numerous
brimstone factories in the park will
give the road considerable employ
