THE HEW TBAKBDONTTH1WT-
AlROtJIE.
The first excursion train over the
now Bonlhorn transcontinental ronto
loft on Tuesday for CalifomU by way
of Now Orleans , over the recently
completed Southern & Texas Pacific
route. The junction of thcso two
lines of railway at El PASO gives a now
outlet for the produce of the Pacific
coast which seeks an eastern market ,
and is of the highest importance in
opening up a heretofore undeveloped
country to Iho manufacturing and
trade Sftlorestsof the Mississippi valley
Shortly nftor the completion of the
Union Pacific , May 10th , 1809 , the
Southern Pacifio company was con
solidated with several small roads in
California. By an act of congress in
1871 the company was authorizad to
connect with the Texas < fc Pacific nt
Fort Ynma , which connection was
effected in May , 1877. Slcco then
the work of construction cent , ward 1m
gene otoadiiy on until now the road is
considered complot ? , It hayiiig outlets
and connections with NoVf O'rloaiiu ,
the principal citioa of Texan , and with
St. iiouia over the A ( chiton , Topdka
fc Santa Fo and the Missouri PaciQo.
The Southern P.ioiQo aa now com-
piotodopons the aanthorn portion cl
Jallfornii , and the available parts of
taw Mexico and Arizona territories
> oth to the benefits of eastern trade
and to the immigration and capital of
brolgnera and natives of this country.
Elorotoforo the rioh agricultural and
grazing lauds of Southern California ,
which embraces nearly one-third of
the entire area , and throe-fourths of
this 50,000 sqnaro miloj suited to cul
tivation , have scarcely boon used at
all. The road passes through the
famed wheat lands of the Con
tra Ooata , Ban Joaqnin , Tu
tare , Kern rlvor and other fertile -
tile valleys , probably the richoat hi
the world. In the territories agri
culture is not so well adopted to the
country through a 'lack of rainfall. In
some districts , however , irrigating
methods are being mod with profit
able results av the neil is equally
rioh us that of California. With the
aut. lament of the country a great rain
fall will .occur each year and in conao *
oa a bettor adaptability of the
soil to pgriculturo and grazing. As
the Southern P.ioifu ii controlled and
operated by Iho Central Pac fij the
former Byiitom will now receive st.mo
c { the boneiita derived from itc can *
ncolion with , the Union Paaific , whinh
can logitlmatoly bo taken from
the laltor road , Thcso c.dvr.u-
tagcs certainly will bo considerable -
sidorablo , especially the castorn
bound baaiHssa now handled altogether
by the Oantral to the Union Pacific
company. The eastern terminus of
the road is at Ei PUZD Dal Norte , to
wards vhich point railroad * are bcinq
conatruoted , while connections are
already made to Now Orleans and1 St.
Liuis. The luttor place will derive
considerable benefit , from the opening
of the road and its merchants havu
'iJy sent their envoys to yraop the
, rado of the newly opened country
n advance ] of corapotitorii. Becidca
ta entering the field us tv formidable
competitor with the osoan grain cirrj-
, ng vessels for through business , the
advantages to bo derived from
the now road may bo thus
summaiizod. It will bo a material
auiillary in taking the Mexican trade
TO in , nnd now controlled by Euro
pean citioa , and giving it to the Amor-
cm cities. It will give the southern
states a route to the Pacifio count , and
an interest in the commerce of Asia
and Europe. It will open up n n i.i-
oral section of country'horotoforo undeveloped -
developed owing to the want of proper
machinery and capital. It will bring
Into the market millions of acres of
valuable lands hitherto unavailable for
lack of proper trantpaitation and
markets. It will aid the national gov
ernment in the transportation of Iu-
dian and war department supplies , and
bo a factor in the tiolution of the In
dian question , Finally it will draw
together n vast amount of capital
hoarded in the east and tend to itc
expenditure on the new section ol
country opened by the road.
The BBB takes the value of the rail'
roads , adds the amount of their In
debtedness , and says that they ought
to bo assessed for the whole business ,
This is the first time that the claim
has been made that a man who owes a
debt ought to bo subject to taxation
on that debt , Uosowator knows thai
the railroads of Nebraska are valued
as high as other property , and we
know that the railroads of Nobrankc
are rated comparatively about three
times ua high as the .property known
as the Omaha BEK SVill the oditoi
of that sheet deny it ? This is not it
defense of the railroads , but in the iu <
teroct of truth , Omii/ia / Jtrpublican ,
The value el any spousi of
orty is what it will brine ; in tin
market or at forced calo. If tin
property is mortgaged and will eel
at a given sum with thu mortgage un
cancelled , ( hen the property is wortl
jut what it will cell for with tin
mortgtgo added. To illustrate * Sup
pose that a farm U mortgaged foi
$5,000. Does not the assessor valut
it at whit it would bring at a forced
s&le , under the mortgage ? Suppose il
could bo sold for § 5,000 , what woulc
itu real value bo ? Would it not b <
worth $5,000 moro thin the ruort
gage or in all $10,000 , NOD
then suppow the oueuor made
it hii practice to aueu
farm property ftt one-third of iU real
value , that * 'woald ' moke the
worth for osaessment f3,33,33 ,
whereas If he assessed it only at one-
third of what it wonld sell for regardless -
less of the mortgaao the owner would
only pay taxes on $1,600.68. On the
Bamo basis of a railroad that Is mort
gaged for $45,000 per mile sells in the
market at $83.000 per mile , its
real value is $128,000. If the
rnlo of one-third is applied
to railroad property ai it is to other
property , it would have to pay taxes
on $12,600.60 per milo. This is ex
actly the condition of the Union Pa
cifio , which , inntoad of paying taxes
on $42,660.00 , has , for years only ,
paid taxes on $10,000 , and is to-day
taxed onlyjm a fraction over Sll.OCO
cr mile. When wo say the real
aluo of the Union Pacific is $128,000
or milo , wo moan that the aggregate
aluo of all its property , and the
ncomo it enjoys from a
lonopoly of the traffic , which
the franchise is worth $128.000 per
lilo , It is not true that the property
t the BEB pays taxes on a basis , loss
tan one-third of that on which the
ailroads nro assessed. The machinery
nd personal property of the 13ir. paid
axes on over $8,000 last year and the
eat estate was taxed about ono-third
f ita market.valuo , whereas the Union
'aclfio railroad has been tcxed at less
han one-tenth of its market value.
iVhat wo insist upon is that all prop-
irty , both that of corporation and pf
ndividnals , ubal ! bo taxed on the aame
W.e are aa yet unnblo to learn why
, ho council laid on the table the ordi-
, anco proposing to give Iho right to a
lompotintf run company to establish
rorks inOuuhaandtolaypipcs in our
troots. TiU ! council has given the
ight to an Electric Light Company to
iroct poles in our streets with a view
if competing in illumination. Why
ihonld they refuse to give ua compoti-
ion in gas. Electric lights can only
o unod by a. limited number of con'
umora. It ia moro expensive than
gas , hence it will not or cannot for
many yearn become an active compo-
Ilion. But when a responsible con-
era uuarantoes to furnish gas at $1.80
per thousand cubic feet and of double
: ho illuminating capacity of that for
which Omaha in now paying § 3 50 to
$4 CO , wo cannot comprehend how any
man or sot of men diren to interpose
ibjcction. All Iho talk of vested
rights and cxclunivo privilege ia bnuh
In the firat pluo ? , the Omahn Gio
company hrwo long SIRO forfeited
whatever riylita they had under their
original charter by violating the pro-
viaiona in ovcry way. In the next
place no rxcluaiva franchise ) to the uao
of ntreots in uny city can bo granted
by any legislative body. This has
bcon the decision of a dozan otato an-
promq , courts and the U. S , suproma
court ban also ruled upon it.
The present gaa company enjoyed a
very lucritivo monopoly for a 'long
time , They have gotten a good price
for very poor gas. They charge tui
under "tho Bchoduio "
city , moonlight ,
$25 pec year per lump for what ii sup
posed to bo 2,300 hours. As a mat
ter of fact , the lampi don't average
nero than three hours per night 01
about 1,000 hours per year. The
United GAI Improvement com-
piny will light the lamps
at 517.CO'a year per lamp ,
by "moonlight tohodulo" strictly
enforced , 2,300 , hours , and from a half
hour after sun down to a half hour before -
fore sunrise , which ia all night , for the
price now paid. Taia mcaua a re
dilation of over -10 per cent onprcneri
prices for proiont service with double
the illuminating capacity. Everybody
knows that burglaries and othercriaica
are committed principally after mid
night , and the Fghts in Onnha are
extinguished at the very time when
they'ought to bo brightest , A largo
portion of our city ia in utter dark
ness all tbo year around , and tha
portion o ! our city whish ia lighted is
BO poorly lighted that burglars operate
right under the lamps. The
only use our brans are after
midnight , is to afford props
to weak-kneed men who are on their
way homo from the Icdgo.
If this gas question is to become an
issue , it will bo one of the livolios
issues that has ever struck Omaha.
SENATOR SAUMUKKS will to-day cal
up the bill for the admission of Da
kota as a state. The democratic mln
orlty are not likely to view with in
'diffarence the prospect of two more
republican senators and throe ropub
lioan electoral votes , and the prospects
for the passage of a bill at the prosen
session are not very bright
There are two bills pending , one in
the house and one in the senate , bu
they are both to the same effect div
Idlngiho territory and authorizing th
lower half to hold a convention and
and frame a constitution. The Intto
mutt bo submitted to congresi to ic
that it provides for a republican fen
of government , and is otherwise nu
objectionable , before the final act o
admission is passed , BO we see vor
llttlo hope of Dakota being adiuitto
under the present congress in t n
case. The people of Washiugto
are equally anxious for admission
but they have taken time b
the foroloctf , held a convention an
framed their constitution without th
help of an enabling act , and are no
knocking at the door of the union
prepared to enter forthwith , Th
one objection to their petition. ! * th
liuuttcltnoy * of their population
which is not more than 100,000 at
best. Dakota baa more , and Is more
rapidly increasing at that. Bat for
the bond difficulty of last winter , the
enabling act would probably have
been passed , and congress be now
asked only to make good that act and
lot Dakota enter at once as a state.
IN rumarko about Thurlow Weed ,
Henry Ward Boecher said the other
day :
It was very rare that life could not
afford to spare anybody , Ho had
never noticed thht any great element
had suffered by the death of anybody ,
It was like dipping a bucket of water
ont of the East River. There was a
splhah , a gurgle , a momentary commo
tion of the waters , and the rlvor flowed
on unmindful of its IOBS. So in lifo.
A man dropped out , the ranks closed
up , the march went on , The news
papers made the most of men's deaths ,
and perhaps perpetuated the impres
sion that tbo places of great men ciuld
not bo supplied. Their inaw must be
filled with something , and so their
columns were tilled up with daily re
ports of a man's condition. Then
came reports about his funeral , then
reminiscences , eo that in thcco days U
really required about a month to fair
ly got rid of n man. [ Laughter. ] The
man who waa apt to tniuk that ho was
omobody , and that the Lord would
nd it difficult to supply his place ,
ught to have no such concern. The
jord would certainly attend to it , and
wo or three rnen would eprlng up who
would do the man's work a great-deal
otter even than ho. All the great
eadora of the church in this country

ay than it was thirty-five years ago.

From 1800 until 1871 the wintorr
were mild and the cattle increased on
the hiile until they numbared quite
half n million. Prior to 1871 there
was scarcely uny o&lo for beet in the
country. The railroads had not
reached Colorado , and 00 miles wa ;
too far to drive , when beef was worth
but 2& conta in the market at Kansas
City , * In 1871 there came a change.
The railroads came , , and the price ol
beef wont up in the east and in Eu
rope. In the west It wont from twc
cents to three , then to four and a half
and the end is not yet. From 1871
to 1880 the increase has been so rapid
that the country then contained
1,500,000 of moat cattle. Then
came the third bad winter ,
the most disastrous of then
all ; probably because there won
moro nattle to kill than there wore It
1803. When the spring of 1881 came
the 1,500,000 cattle that had entered
the winter were reduced to loss thai
000,000 , and onr people bcosmo im
porters instead of exporters of beef
With aU these losses , stock-growing it

A bachelor lawyer at the Lrjzarn
bar had a pretty courin , at each ricu
renco of ivhoao birthday ho Is esteemed
od entitled to the cousinly privoleg
of a kisj , though ho alvvajs baa ti
fight for it. Lately the birthday hav
ing gone by during a business trip n
- which he waa away , ho caked If h
might not hava his Idas notwi'hstand
ing. To this oho strenously objected
She paid no bills , eho said , when th
creditor allowed pay-day to pasa with
out calling on her. Ho proposed a
game of euchre , on which ho wonld
atako a pair of glovea against his cous
inly privilege. She agreed nnd she
won. Then ho staked a box of bon-
bone. She assented and won
u
again. Then handkerchiefs , stock
ings , nnd other articlei of fominlno
apparel and adornment were put up ,
and the bachelor's luck grow no bet
tor. They played eleven gamea , and
she was victor of them all. Being in
Philadelphia n few days later , the
loser called at a loading dry goods
house to make his purchases. Ic was
