THE FAKNAM STREET GRADE.
The certainty that Omaha will
shortly enter upon an extensive sys
tem of paving her principal streets
has awakened a now agitation in favor
of changing the grade of Farnain
street from Sixteenth to the crest o :
the hill at Twentieth street. Rulj
last spring the city council appoints
three citizens to appraise the damage ?
which would result from such chnnui
of grade. Tlio report of the appraiser
was filed last March with the counci
and nn account of the heavy damngcf
claimed by the owners of nhuttlni
lots it was not deemed advisablu ti
take nny further action in the matter.
Withyin few dajutUe county commis
sioners lii vo doturminud that tin
question whether the present grade ia
to be maintained or not ouuht to hi
settled and they have been reinforce <
in tlieir opinion by the urgent requests
of .several heavy owners of property
along the linn of the projected im
provement. The decision of tlio city
council to annul the appraiseiuont o
last spring has been alsorenchod nftei
consultation with a number of oui
citizens who are intorcntod in liuvinj.
Farimm street levelled and who , it it-
understood , are willing to waive nl
damages to tlieir property interests ii
cane the grade is changed.
Farnam street is the natural tradi
thoroughfare of Omaha It is the
only street in the city which extends
for three miles with a uniform width
of ono hundred feet. The rapid man
ner in which it is being filled
with substantial business housen
of brick and stonu shoWB clearly thai
before a few years elapse the entire
street from Tenth to Sixteenth will
bo fully occupied with permanent
structures. At this point the hill
operates to turn aside the current of
trade into other channels. There is
no doubt that the cutting down of
the Furnhani street grade H ould bean
an immense advantage to the prop
erty adjoining and a bonelit to the
city nt largo. Much of the trallip to
and from the country which now
pauses along St. Mary's avenue would
seek an outlet by way of Farnlmin
Htroot. The building of the court
IIOUHO and the grading of the street
together would iniiku upper Farnham
street peculiarly availublo for busi-
noes purposes while the whole street
lined with substantial stores would
become ono of the handsomest thor
oughfares in any city of the west.
Much , of course , will depend upon
the action of the property owncm in
the matter. If they can bo brought
to neu that the advantages to be derived -
rived from the contemplated change
of grade will more than olFnot any
damages which they may undergo by
reason of the lowering of the hill ,
there ought to bu no difliculty in set
tling the question to the satisfaction
of ull concerned. On the other hand
the city , in ordering the now npprais-
mont , mufit bo prepared to make fair
mid reasonable compensation for all
legitimate daniauo to the valuable
abutting property , and for the consequent
quent inconvenience which such grad
ing will occasion to residence owners
along the line of the * contemplated
THE AGRICULTURAL ASSOCI
ATION AND MR. CHITXEN-
THE BEE in a recent number called
the attention of its readers to the
journal of the so-called American Ag
ricultural Association which contained
Edward Atkinson's article on "Tho
Railroad and the Farmer , " and the
reply to the aamo by Hon. L. K. Ohit-
; end 'ii of the National Anti-monopoly
League. Mr. Chiltenden'a article
was prefixed by an apologetic note
'rom the monopoly editor of the
journal in which ho warned his road-
irs against the "communistic senti-
nontH" of Mr. Chittondon , and indulged -
dulgod in general abuse of farmers
favoring railroad regulation. Im-
nojiso numbers of this issue of the
Journal wore distributed by the rail
roads , thu Erie company alone taking
10,000 copies for free circulation
among the farmers along the line of
ts road. In short the American Ag
ricultural Association of which Mr.
D. II. Wheeler , of Nebraska , is ono
of two vice '
president's was used us a
decoy through which to conduct the
operations of the railroad literary
mreau and to awindlo the farmers into
he belief that a national organiza
tion of agriculturista was opposed to
any control of the railways by tlio
people. Mr. Chittondon has not felt
disposed to Buffer in silence under the
itluek made on him by Mr. Icoal of
the Journal and at.tho request of the
AntUmonopoly Loayuu , TIIK UKK
publishes his answer in thu form of a
TO TJIK 1'UIII.IO.
TJw-criticism of Mr. Heal , the t-di-
tor of uio article on "The llailroad and
thei Farmer , " in the October number
of the American Agricultural Aesoci-
ciation , deaorvos a , few observations ;
J. A revised proof was iient Mr.
Heal of my article , to which ho paid
> o attention. I deny his right to refuse -
fuse to correct th * article and then
uuso uiu for writing It.
- ' . Ho says my articto is "conceived
in a spirit of communism. " Thin
bUtemont is not true. There is not
\ communistic idea or a.Mggeation in
t. It maintains
the righM of property -

erVMico of the laws , a they Are do-
cjared by the highest judicial au-
3 , He that I
ayi question the ) no.
lives of Mr Atkinson without just
cause. I do not question his motives
at all. I state a fact , that his article
has boon largely circulated among the
farmers at railroad cost. Thin fnc
Mr. Heal docH not deny.
1. Mr Ilonl aays the main points o
Mr. Atkinson are that the railroads
have developed the resources of the
country , itc This is not his mail
point at all. Had it boon there would
have been no occasion for my answer.
The point of his article was thatthcre
had been an extraordinary rcdustiot
in railroad chanjon duo to the volun
tury nets of the companies , fron
which thu farmers had received i
larger measure of benefit thnn thu
railroad companion. This atatemen
I have coi.clusivoly refuted. Mr
Real cannot eacapo by dodging tlu
true , and tendering me an immatcria
5. Ho cays that Mr. Atkinson dii
not attempt to express nny viowa ate
to the legal right of the people , am
complaint ) of mo because I luvo BO
forth thcao rights as the tusis of the
dincuNsaion. If the people's rights
are ignored there can bo no discus-
flion of the r.ulroad question. One
might an well try to discuss thoorigii
of the rebellion and omit all refer
unco to slavery.
0. Ho aays and repeats that I main
main that thu relatioim of the state t <
the railroads is that of u borrower o
money , and the larger part of hit )
article is a refutation of that statement
mont and the cotmuquoncoH of it. Mr
Real knows 1 have stated no sucl
proposition. He was hard presaci
for facts when he attempted to impute
this to me. No Benttiblu man cat
misunderstand my article. I discuss
the question under three aspects
First , when thu stales should build i
railroad with thu public funds. Second
end , when the state should build a
railroad with funds borrowed for the
purpose. Third , and the case in hand
when the state "prefers to bu relieved
of the copt and euro of constructing
and operating the railroad , to delegate
a portion of its duties to a body of
citi/.ona forming a corporation and to
compensate them tor the performance
of these duties by a grant of certain
privileges. " Thu state a borrower
from the r.iilioad companies I Noli-
7. Mr. Real says that I prcsonl
"estimate's of the cost of transporta
tion not leas absurd than my theo
ries. " JIu attempts to prove this by
Hat misrepresentations ; by putting
words and arguments into my moutli
which I h.ivo never used.
On page 14 ! ) I discuss the "actual
cost of moving freight. " I put thia
iiuestion , "What is the actual coat of
traimportinu the * burden of a freight
train on such u railroad from East Al
bany to Now York ? '
This question 1 attempt .to anawer
approximately , and I do aimvvcr it IIH
accurately in the fuels obtainable will
warrant. lam not < Uscusaing the gen
eral ami of conducting the tiannportt-
tion buBinubs of a railroad. Mr.
Rual , knowing ihis , undertakes to
Bay I am , and therefore he urges that
my theories are absurd , because I have
omitted thu costt of agents , advertis
ing , returning empty cara , etc. Ilo
was hard presiod for material when ho
resorted to thia.
Mr. Real's criticism is founded
upon these non-ttatomcnts of my own
and Mr. Atkinson's nrtiolu. All the
rest of IUH criticinm falls under throe
heads : Mr. Real's opinion , abuse ol
myself , and praise of Mr. Atkinson.
In Mr. .Meal's opinion I am ignorant ;
I abound in invectives ; I appeal to
prejudice and not to sound judgment ;
1 deal in misrepresentation ; I have
not established a single fact ; my oati-
matea uro riot less absurd than my
theories , and I "dont amount to
much anyway. "
Mr. Atkinson , on the contrary , is
in great commercial and manufactur
ing enterprises. Ho ia a shipper upon
and patron of the railroads ; has had
"opportunities ; " is n practical busi-
ncaaman ; a compiler of facts , and a
calm rcasoner. In short he is n great
and good man.
I ueny th it Mr. Iteal's opinions are
of any consequence. Ho is working
in the interest of the railroads , and
"the laborer is worthy of his hire. '
His abuse ia what I state in my arti
cle I expect from persons in hia posi
tion , and I have received so much of
it that any little addition from Mr.
Heal is immaterial. Were I in Mr.
AtkiiiHon'a place , receiving the praises
uf Mr. Real , 1 might s.iy with blulf ,

oloso of the rebellion , whether

jf the chief justice might be pro-
lorvod until after Mr. Lincoln's in-
uiguration , but the judge holds out
to long that I am very much afraid I
jvordid the business. " In his praise
jf Mr. Atkinson I think ho has over-
Jono thu business.
In ono respect my article has been
productive of good results , which
imply repay the trouble of its prepa
ration. I supposed , and many far-
uors supposed , that the "Journal of
ho American Agricultural Associa-
ion" was n farmers' journal , was pub-
iahcd [ H their interest , and would ad-
. 'ociito that interest in public quea-
ions. Wo did not then know that it

But Whut Will Wo Do.
ConuruHMiiaii Iiit'got , of Nevada
has recently presented an indictmen
agiinst Messrs. Stinford , Hunting
ton , Crocker and others of the Central
tral and Southern Pacific railroads , ii
which he clurges that thesegentleinei
( ? ) have within thu last fifteen yean
unjustly acquired the ownership am
control of over $ . ' 100,000,000 worth o
property ; that in return therefor
they have given no equivalent ; tha' '
on the contrary , they have acquired
much of thia vast capital run
power by fr.iud and extorlioi
robbery ; and that they an
si ill using the same for furl he
extortions and robberies ; that 15 year :
ago their combined capital did not ex
ceed § 150,000 ; and their actual investment
mont in tlicae railroads i.i $12,000
The evidence adduced by Mr. D , i
abundant and conclusive. That uthc
railroad magnate * have practiced tlu
same abuses is generally believed , it
a leaser degree perhaps , and the quea
tion that naturally comes home t <
thinking patriotic men ia , what an
wo going to do about it ? a qucstioi
not easily answered. The evil in no
pirent. Thu consequences of aeon
tinuancu of the evil are also apparent
It ia certain that nothing will bo doni
about it until the people do it. Tin
evil will not cure itself. The railroad
magnates will not niter their course
except under compulsion. Their violent
lent and acrid opposition to overj
attempt to secure- justice by the pee
pie ; their earnest and generally elfec
tivo efforts to obstruct and defeat tin
passage and proper working as such
laws as are passed by throwing oppro-
bium upon the same , their author ?
and supporters , is too well known tc
need recounting hero. In making
these ciforts and this opposition these
railroad mon have certain advantages
well worth looking at.
In the first place , they have money ,
and lots of it. The fact should not be
overlooked that the money they use
for this purpose , practically bolonqs tc
and cornea from the people. Every
dollar expended by them in this as in
every other direction ia considered by
them as expenses ; and is charged up
to and becomes a part of that list
termed operating expanses. AH lawa
now are , they are easily reimbursed
for these expenses ( ? ) by a
slight addition to the tarill' , so that in
thia fight between the railroads and
the people , the people pay the expenses
of both sides. Thia lact needa to bu
kept in view , as it has pertinence
along the whole line of co itrovory
Ag-iin these men &ro men if hi rgo ability
and are generally public spirited. It
is easy to bo liberal and public spritud
with other people'a money. Tlio are
lionor.ible(7) ( ) , educated and agreeable ,
and BO are influential To auch men
with such means and inilucncia , argu
ments and advocates are never want
ing. To auch men with such ndvan-
tanes , organization ia a simple
matter ; and that they can and
do organize , thoroughly and perfectly
ia natural , and not to bo wondered
at. Nor is it to bo wondered at that
they make this organization and influ
ence felt in the legislature ,
the lobby and upon public
opinion. One of their most effective
methods ia to so distract and confuse
the public and its law makers with
other questions , as to turn the atten
tion away fr m this one , Lika other
fishermen , they like to fish in muddy

advantages of money , ability , influ
ence , power and ooganization mere
numbers scattered confused and un

The Anti monopoly League and the

whose objects are to arouse public sen

and circulate information in regard to

so as to bring about the necessary
remedy. It is to bo hoped that those
