Mr. President and Gentlemen of the Sen
ate and IIou e of llrepresentatives of
the State of Nebraska :
Oppressed with a sense of the deep
obligation I am under , I find it dllli-
cult to say anything at this time.
You have gone through a moat weari
some contest : For thirty days it haa
continued and I congratulate you that ,
as the result of the contest from this
republican state , a republican sena

citizen of this glorious state [ ap

which I am elected , as a citizen of
this state of Nebraska , representing ,
I hope no faction , no party ,
but the Interest of every party
and of all parts of the cltizenehln of
thia commonwealth , [ A.pplanao. ] I
am a republican , but I glory not in the
past of that party , but I glory that
within it there la stamina , there is en

live upon the past , but to progress
with the march of events into the fa-
tnro. In the place that I am to fill I
assure yon that whatever there
is of wrong that may bb rem
edied by my action It will
have my beat and earnest endeavors.
There are agitated in the national
congreaa questions of vital importance
not only to the paoplo of this state
but to the nation at largo. I submit
to you that the past hlatcry of the !
republican party a hews that It is able
and willing to grapple with those is
sues and to bring thorn to a succaas
fnl termination. But I do not Intend
to make A opeoch but simply to thani

The special order bill No. 54 , was
considered and an addition to section
No. ' 2 was offered by Mr. Shoonholt
and accepted. Then Mr. Harrison
asked to amend by inserting a clause
forbidding the Issuing of passes to any

Bill No. 5 for an act to establish
uniform freight and passenger rates
on railroada In the state of Nebraska
and to prevent discriminations in
favor of or against persons and places ,
wan taken up , Mr. Reynolds is the
author cf the bill and strongly urged
the passage of its several sections.
The antagonism came on the consid
eration of section No. G. This sec
tion compels the roads to carry any
excess over a car load , or any weight
lees than a cir load , at the same proportionate
portionato rate as f jr a car load.
Mr. Reynolds was asked whether
he knew the1 rates now charged , and
whether he knew how much a certain
railroad paid. rt *
He replied that their showing made
them out very poor.
Mr. Brawn , ( Lancaster ) , wished t
know whether ho had nny reason ti
doubt the sta'temonts cf the railroad
Mr. Reynolds replied that ho wni
not hare to acsutm gmitlomon of falsa

to answer that question ,
Mr , Deoh euid that tlin railroad
commlttoo could find out nothing from
the authorities. Whunnoked whether
they brought their pay rolln with
them they say "No ; It would take a
freight car to transport them. Be-
sidoa they cro in nao ovary hour , and
wo have no right to bring our tmploy-
er'a property down here anyway , "
When aakod what their salary is they
refuse to answer , and no on through
out. If they refuse to gtvo us lighten
on the matter , letns legislate with such
light us wo have.
Mr. Butler tkought it would bo very
hard to got up a perfect bill , but ho
was going to vote for a railroad bill
even though it might work a hardship
to the roads. They raiuht bo brought
to their ( tenses and bo willing to give
