even Mr. Reed , assisted by Spoako :

the bill confirming that grant of 14 ,

railroad. There 1s ground for con
gratulatlon over ( hat fact.
BHirrino THE RESPONSIBIL
Now that the loglslatnro has ad
journed and the railroads have defeated -
foatod all legislation tending to csm-
pel them to bear an equal share of
the burdens of taxation and to re-
dnco tholr oppressive exactions , the
monopoly organs , both democratic and
republican , have the impudence to
charge the anti-monopolists with the
responsibility for this oulrago upon
the people of Nebraska. The way In
which they seek to mislead the public
Is by stating that the legislature was
anti-monopoly and that the antimonopoly
nopoly legislature was a sham.
Now , while It is true that before the
legislature mot the Impression was
that It would bo an anti-monopoly
legislature , this Impression was cur
rent , not because the nnli monopolists
were in the majority , but because all
parties In Nebraska had committed
themselves to the policy which the
anti-monopoly party had originated
and advocated. It was because this
policy was so just , and the demands
made by It voiced the senti
ment of the vast majority of thopeoplo
that both the republicans and demo
crats in their convections bound them
selves to carry It out. The fact that
17,000 voters had loft the democratic
and r9pnbllcan organizations in dls
gust at their failure to do justice to
the people by regulating railroad traf
fic , was moreover taken on all hands
as such an emphatic robnko to
the republican party that no
loader of any standing In that party
dared to oppose anti-monopoly princi
ples or to avow himself as a monopo
Bat the legislature failed to enact the
laws that wore promised , and straight
way the cry goes forth , "Anti-monop
ely Is a sham , a base delusion , a hypo
critical faction , a political myth , an
enemy to fair railroad legislation. "
Lat us see how far this charge is trno :
Of the 133 members of the legisla
ture , 26 wcro straight out and nut
anti-monopolists ; 37 were democrats ,
and 70 wore republicans. This
division gave the republicans a
clear majority , and the loading
railroad republican organ at Oman *
proclaimed to all the world that republicans
publicans would dictate legislation and
take the responsibility. It declared
that railroad legislation was a nooossl *
ty and being recognized as such would
be granted by the republican majority.
How have the republicans discharged
the sacred trusts which they took upon
themselves at the opening of the ses
sion. The senate was organized by
the combined opposition on an antimonopoly -
monopoly basis. The very first bill in
troduced in the senate , Mr. McShano's
enate file No. 1 , was a revenue bill
to compel railroads to pay city and
county taxes on their maohlno shops ,
headquarters , depot buildings and
other local improvements. j
That bill passed the sonata and was
strangled in a republican house. The
second railroad bill passed by the
senate was one compelling railways to
pay taxes on their franchise , and thli
was promptly pigeonholed through the
republican speaker and never was
discussed at all. The only mead'
uro that responded to the de
mands of the people for (
reduction of railroad tolls was framed
by the railroad commlttoo of the senate
ate , and passed by that antl-monopolj
body nearly two weeks before th <
close of the session , This bill rodnooc
passenger tolls to three cents a mile
and made a uniform reduction ic
freight tolls of 20 per cent from the
January schedule , subject only to re
vision by the state oflioars acting
as commissioners. The house railroad
"committee , packed by the republican
spoiker with cappers , hold the bill
for more than ton days. Meantime ,
after mangling and killing every rail
road bill that had any merit , they pro ?
icntod and forced through the house
n abortion that promised no relief ,
, nd which they know the senate coulc
ot endorse without stultifying itself.
Having sarrondoaod entirely to th <
aonopoly lobby , and become simply
n onglno of oppression and plunder
ho republican party in the housi
.dded . injury to insult by voting
.hrough that body a whole raft of jobt
Whore wore the twenty-six anti-
monopolists all this time ? Everyone ,
without exception , in'the senate , sup
ported the senate bills for railroad ro
gnlatlon and In the house every oni
rosorded his vote for the senate bll
when It was under consideration. On
of 26 , only five or six supported thi
capltol bill In any shape and only twi
or three recorded tholr votes In f ave
of any bogna claim. Dive Butler , wlu
championed all the jobs and steals ii
the senate , cannot ba regarded as ai
honest nxponout of anti-mono
poly. Ho forced himself into tin
movement In his insane ambitloi
to come to the front In public life
but only demonstrated by his conduo
that he gannet bo
trusted In any po
sltlon which gives him a chance to pu
his hand Into the public treasury
Thd anti-monopolists out him fron
the start and refused to take him Int
their counsels when they organized th
senate. And they very properl
disclaim all responsibility for h !
In the face of the record the re
publican party cannot shift the n
sponslblllty for broken faith and on !
raged public sentiment upon the antl
monopolists. They , and they alonp ,
stood almost solidly against HII
temptation and outside of all combina
tion , In support of anti-monopoly
laws and a redaction of taxes.
The democrats were , if anything , a
eood deal worse than the republicans.
Tiro-thirds of thorn are on record
as jobbers and catspaws cf the
monopolies , with a hand In every
steal and a voice against ovora meas
ure that would redress the wrongs of
which the people complain. This
conduct was under the inspiration o (
Morton and Miller , whose leadership
is repudiated by all honest and reput
The lack cf occanragomont which
Omaha has given to manufacturing
enterprises has lost to our city then
sands of dollars in trade and largo
numbers of citizens. Every now man
ufactory will add to the productive
capacity of the city and increase its
commercial importance. More than
that , it builds up the retail trade and
stimulates prosperity among the
smaller merchants , No inland city
can Increase rapidly beyond a certain
point unions It sustains home Industry.
It Is the working men who toil in our
mills and factories and spend their
wages wlth'tho butcher and grocer and
baker who form the backbone of all
commercial solidity in the largo cities
No city that falls to rocogniz ) this
fact can complain if it legi behind in
the race for progress.
Wo have a board of trade which
meets seml-occaslonally and passti
a few resolutions favoring the
establishment of now industries ,
Bat what is our board of trade doing
to onoourago the promoters of sncb
enterprises tolooato In our city. Some
thing more Is needed than a mere
presonUl of the advantages possessed
by Omaha as a railroad center and a
growing city. In nlno cases out of toe
a slight bonus In lands or money would
attract capital which is diverted by the
greater inducements hold out bj
smaller towns. Lands along the rail'
roads which arc especially suitable foi
manufacturing Industries are hold al
such exorbitant figures that the prloei
frighten away intending investors ,
There is such a thing as watching the
spigot and letting the older run out ol
