FHKMONT , July 18
To the Killtor of Tim HKR :
The jtivenilo nkull nnd crossbones
who drawn n yearly stipend from Jay
Gould for steering one of thu bundles
to that wind scavenger The Omaha
Republican and whoso only recom
mendations for thia honorablojl ( ) posi
tion were n lack of principle nnd nn
overwhelming n'.nount of cheek , hna
diacovorod something very alnrlling
in the declaration of principles of the
Fremont anti-monopoly league. Now
ns thcso principles nro the snmo nn
ndoptod by the ntiti-monopoly con von-
, ion hold nt Lincoln laat Juno , it is
lomowhnt surprising that wo hnvo not
lionrd from this corporation "toad
atnbbor" before in regard to these
> rinciploa. He hna probably just ro-
coivecl word trom iny Gould to open
lia mouth , and in his endeavor to do
in hia master bid him , ho has opened
't ao vide that ho has jammed hia fool ,
'lap ' into it. llo Rnya thu Fremont
eaguo ia compoaod "of n dozen demo
crats mid n couple of Roaowalora. " To
commence with , thia ia n contemptible
io , nnd there ia no question but tlmt
10 know ho was lying when ho penned
hone words. But ho iu paid for doing
this dirty work , nnd wo really expect
nothing better from him.
Thia nrticla of little over n column
in length rotda so much like the nrtl
cloa that Mr. Vitring used to write to
the Fremont Tribune in reply to
Thoron Nye ( the paternal nnuestor of
thia rooator ) that ono cinnot doubt
but that they nro Mio "co-dcacondnnte
of a common progenitor. " The nrti-
clen to which f refer were written nnd
published several yeara ago. Mr.
Nye complained very bitterly of the
diHcriminulion tigninai buninena men
of Fremont by the Union Pacific rail
way company. Tlui uincttBsioii got to
bo very hot , J : Nyu rmlerating hia
charges ( if i , tion , , nd diaorimiua-
lion AD- ' i fining H plying with all
tlio v.'u.i a possible fur n 111,111 in his
position. Does this I- . . 1 of Jay Gould
renumber Ijioao nrlioluH ? Did ho
thiiik then and doen ho think now
that hiH father wan n "political conun
drum" for defending himself ngamst
thia robbing institution !
Again , ho uaya Chut Fremont haa
not Buffered nt the hands of railway
cpmpimicB , and again ha known ho
lies. Every farmer nud every dealer
iu merchandise that fillips a loaded
car ncrona the bridge nt Omaha aud
pnya that toll of from five to ton dol-
Jnra , suffers at the hands < jf railway
companies. In Council Bluffs , Town ,
coal ia being retailed at § 3 50 per ton.
Wo pay for the snmo article hero in
Fremont § 0 per ton. Of courao thia
extra _ § 2 50 per ton dooa not tend to
our disadvantage. On the contrary ,
tins ia probably what gives to Fremont
"tho position of un important interior
city , with n splendid market and
Inigo business performance. " "OhI
consistency , 'thou nrl n jowol. "
Again ho saya : "However , if n
U'unnitio republican should happen to
become imbued with anti-monopoly
principles , it would bo a good thing
tor him to remember tlmt hia party
is composed of honest men , &o.
About the beat thing for n citizen
of Nebraska to remember is that ho
IH n presented in congress by a no-
lorionuly dishonest and corrupt third

it would be quite aa well to remember

Diligent people aa an honest paper
Unquestionably there are honest
nen in the republican party , aa there
rf in the democratic party , nnd these
ire the very men who are bccoin-
tig in 'inbeni of the anti-monopoly
uagui'B nnd farmer ' ulliaiices. They

The committee first adopted recoin-
endatiorii to the city council in re-
ird to meaaurea provontivu o ( tear-
ing up the atrootfi when paved , and
then conaidcrinj ; the utility of n
thorough foundation before paving ,
aa one of the most important stops
toward the permanency of pavements.
Alter having fairly entered upon
their work the committee adjourned
until to-dny.
The recommendation to the city
council win tlmt nn oidinnnco should

A bnro majority of the ( iftcon mem
bers of tlio judiciary committee of the
houta reported in ellect that the laiula
of the Northern Pixrilio railroad com-
jinny were mm-forfeitablo. Seven
members of the cnmmittep , under the
lead of Proctor Knott , dissent from
thia conclusion , As given by The
Now York Sun correspondent , the
minoiity report arts forth that the
Northern Pacific was chartered by net
of congress approved Juno 4 , 18GI , in
which n conditional grant of hind
was made , estimated by the auditor of
railroad accountant52l)20,003norus ) or
90,000 squiiro miles. In 1870 congress
authorized the company to isauo
bonds to nid in constructing and
equipping the road , the bonds to bo
secured by mortgage on Us rights nnd
property of all kinds. Under this au
thority the company isauod in the fol
lowing July § : H,000,000 of bonds , to
run thirty yeara , nt 7 3-10 pur cent.
interest. The report intimntea that
the crash of 18711 wna brought on by
HID ability of those intarvsled in the
Northern Pncilio to keep it longer
iillunt. The real value of its bonds
wna disclosed then , nnd they con-
timied to decline until April , 1875 ,
whim tlui foreclosure proecudinga were
begun in Now Yoik.Underdi'crooof the
court the properly and fiixnclimcHtoro
Kold , nnd pin chimed by a committou
for the bomlholdera. The bonds had
gone down before the nuit wan brought
to 20 ci'iiM on the dollar , nud buforo
the deoreo to 14 conta. The roporl
infcrd , therefore , that nt the time of
the tialo the largest part of the bonds
were in the hands of capitalists , who
had bought thorn up at thuao low fig-
urea , So far no the atock of thu com
pany in concerned , no quotaliona up-
pour from the time of thu failure of
Jay Cooke & Co. , but thu report unya
it , was a notorious tact that the atock
waa held at merely a nominal value.1 ,
\ that largo blucka were oold at
from 5 to 10 eenln on the dollar.
On September . ' ! 0 , 1875- the com
pany having boon roorgunizcd on n
plan by which the bondholdera were
to bo reimburaod for the principal and
interest on their bonds up to July 1 ,
1878 , iu preferred 'stock at par , enti-
Ued-toiBjw cent , interest beforo. any
ikhor dividends were paid , thcao bonds
lo bo convertible into certain bonds
jolonging to the company preferred
itock to the amount of § 51,000,000
vas hauod to tlio holders of common
itock iu the old company , filiuro for
ihnre , to the amount of § 19,000,000.
if the legality of thcao proceeding * )
jo admitted , says the report , the
ilockholdcra obtained § 100,000,000 in
ireferrud und common stock , with the
ranohisos and property of the com-
taiiy , includint ; the right to 90,000
( junro miles of land , nt n probable
lutluy of twelve millions or less. The
neat prodigal gonoroaity could only
, llow thu company a fmfliciont amount
if land to enable it to finish its road
rco of cost. Eleven hundred and
lighty miles of the road are now com-
iletcd , or 500 moro than when tlio
.uditor'ii laat report wua mado. This
; ivoB the road 27,800,000 oiirned aorca.
riio average price the land heretofore
old haa brought has boon § 3 ! ( !
,11 , acre. The lands already earned
.mount to § 18.'i,400,000. The auditor
stimates thu average cost per milo ut
< 28,000 , and aa there remain UOO miles
0 bo built , the cost will bo § 19,8)0- )
00. If this Bum bo deducted from
ho ? 8,400,000 : ) , the oatimatod worth
f the land already earned , the report
rguea that the company hart already
creived enough to onublo it to build
, H ramaining line frco of coat , besides
oiling § . ' { 3,500,000 over and above.
Again , the auditor reports that thu
rholo number of miles upon which
10 company is entitled over atibaidy
1 2,450 , or 000 moro than the com-
ntteo I'litimatca the length of the
min line to be. Thu additional ( JOO
tiles , ut $28,000 u milo , would cost
18,700,000 over and iibovo thu coat
f all the subsidized litioa , main und
.em , The auditor eatimutes tlio coat
f the entire ayalem of roada of the
jmpany nt § 75,000,000. This aub-
acted from the value of the
iiid ulrrady uarnod loaves a § 110-
30 , which the report culls a gift
> the company over nnd ubovo the
jat of building the road. The report VI
lakes another estimate on the basis VIw
F § 2 50 an acre , and ligurea gift to w
10 company of § 900,000 over and
bovo the cost , of construction on land
ready earned , The report suggests
mt "this Is enough to B.itisfy thu cu-
idtty of the company , " and this it
3ta beyond poraUventuro. But if
lero bo applied to auditor's
itimates to the grant , earned
id unearned , the result ia that
10 land figured at § 2 50 an aero is
orth § 144,800,000. The estimated
ital coat of thu untiro road ia 874 ,
balance of § 70U70-
II , whioh , the report says , is donated
i this company in addition to the on-
ro coat of thu road. For thia colos-
1 gift it is suggested that the United
: utes IB never to receive one penny
return , In view of thoau facts , the
port very naturally recommends
at all lands remaining unearned on
inunry 1 , 1882 , bo forfeited to the
nited States.
