THE TRANSPORTATION BEARD.
How It rnils to Affoicl Omnha De-
slroil Kolicf From tlio Oppres
sive Rates Over the Union
"Somebody should hold a post-mortem ex
amination on the Nebraska State Board of
Transportation , " said a well known whole-
ealo merchant. "Like the ground hog , if
circumstances at oof a threatening nature ,
that body goes into its hole and remains
thoro. It Is to bo regretted that the commer
cial Industry of Omaha should bo hampered
by exorbitant freight charges , nnd a voice
that should make Itself hoard remain silent.
Neglect in the performance of tlio duty de
volving upon the board has boon accompan
ied by : v contraction of business throughout
the tnto. Complaints of excess freight
charges have been made , but the board has
evidenced but llttlo desire to afford n rem
edy. Wo can furnish it with ample working
material light ncre In Omaha. The Union
Pacific and its barrier is the foundation upon
which f base my assertions. Just look at It.
Hero wo have largo wholesale ostabllsmonts
that should not confine their business trans
actions m the trnns-Mlasouri territory. Wo
should bo n supply station for all western
Iowa , but the Union Pncillo says "No. " It
docs not conio out BO openly , but It estab
lishes n rate on shipments across the bridge-
BO high tlmt wo can not meet the prices of
Jorolgn competitors In our own territory.
Thou again on bhlpmonts to Omaha from the
cast the Union Pacific slaps on its toll , which
coicpoln us to establish higher wholesale
prices , winch practically shut * us out In
competitive territory. 'Ihore Is ono thing
certain atid that is If tha Chicago lines do
nocnbaoib the "toll" on west-bound ahlp-
xnents U ) Oiuahu , and if the Union Paclllo
docs not rodueo Us bridge tariff on eastbound -
bound Hhlpuiontf ) , n grand howl will bo made
some of these days which will open some
people's cars and eyes. The monopoly of tha
traftla Is sufllclont to loluiburso tha Union
PaclUo for Its ' * 3,000UOO structure,1 with
out any Increase being made in its rate
uciosulho bridge , on a mlloago basis. I
think the board of transnortation nhould
) m\o un eye to business instead of falling
Into Rip Van \\luklo sleeps , "
Them is something aoout the Union dope
project that invites suspicion on the parto :
the tax-paying element of Omaha. There Is.
it Is thought , n screw loose somewhere.
When the railroad companies tlrst made
known their Intention to construct a uuloi
depot , nothing wus said concornincr the con-
ctrucllon by the city of u viaduct spanning
Tenth street , anil the building nlono wus to
cost upwards of $1,500,000. Gradually the
Inside fuels are being brought to the surface ,
and If no change Is made nnd manors keep
on scaping themselves as they have within
the 'Vlgantlo" structure
the nast eight days ,
will be reduced to a more skeleton , 'ilio
actual cost of the building on a liberal esti
mate. It Is said , will not exceed $500,000 , and
together with the * ito and viaduct ull ) oost
but teOO.OOO. The railway onlelulu now ask
that the city veto ? 1T5OCO la "viaduct and
Qcpot bonds" a * a bonus.
Th establishment of parlis and places for
out door amusement * is a new moyo In con
nection with OmiiHu railroads. Within the
F t j ear important steps have been token In
this direction , ' 1 lift Union Pacitlo has located
park tit Waterloo , about thlrty-ttto uiles
from Omaha. Considerable money has been
expended in lining this park up , ana it U
fut becoming a f&voi ito retort.
'Iho Missouri Paclflo hat also reached out
in this direction , nud not only has it perfected
a park system along the Bolt line , but It bus
put on a regular Sunday excursion train.
The resort nt Weeping Water has also been
fixed up on un elabotatu ecixle , aud consider *
able attention baa boon given it by tbo local
In forming the Inter-stata Railway associ
ation and its sub-organizations , the exchequer
of the interested lines has been heavily
drawn upon ; and , on a conservative b.isis , it
is said , it Is safe to state that , the expenditure
of money in this direction has already mil
far beyond the million dollar point. This is
easily explained. Prom the time the associa
tion first got down to business , which dates
back to January 1 last , high-salaried officials
of each road have devoted a largo part of
their time endeavorinc to perfect the ma
chinery of the organization. Ono need not
go outside of Omuha for ovldonco of this
Kind. Smco March 10. J. A. Munroe , sen-
erul freigrt agent of the Union Paeihe , has
not spent flvo days in his ofllco in this city ,
and , on the other hand , has been Junketing
about the country , ilrst to onopomt and thuu
to another. General Traffic Man
ager Mellon , of the Union Pacillc ,
has also devoted considerable of his time
m furtherance of the schemes as well as has
E. L. Lorn ax , the ROD oral passenger agent.
Even Vice President Holcomb has been com
pelled to saunter out into the cold world and
lend assistance to the ideal instiumont of
monopoly. It is estimated that it has cost
the Union Pacillc alone , up to the present
time , fully $150,000 M Its share of the ex
pense , and the end has not yet been reached.
'Many people are of the opinion that the
Brotherhood of Locomotive firemen and the
Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers are
not very closely nfltlUted. " said a well
known llrcman on the | Union Pacll'.c , "hut
their conclusion Is wrong. There never was
a time , in the history of cither organization ,
when there was such a kindred feeling
among the members. It U true that ut the
time the Burlington strike wus settled the
firemen felt ns though the engineers did not
recognbo the importance of their order as
fully as they should have clone under the
circumstances. But the public should boar
m mind that the settlement was effected on
sttango grounds ; n settlement which did not
receive the support nmonR the engineers
until It was found to bo the only available
means of bringing the strike to un end , and
oven then there wus considerable opposition
to its being adjudicated by a committee In
the light of an arbitration. But whatever
deirrco of ill-fooling was engendered , It has
been removed from the ranks of both broth
erhoods , and to-day they ere ns ono each
recognizing that the Interest of-the other is
paramount to its own. And wo nro grad
ually nearing that point whore consolidation
Will ba effected , Tbo federation of the two
organizations has been a theme for discus
sion for some time past , and I would , not be
surprised if u consolidation was effect-id at
the annual session of the ardors next full.
Does this look llko rivalry or disintegration 1
Just put it down that whenever cither ele
ment has a grievance It will take an undi
vided stand in bringing about its rodrcss. "

missioner Hartmau was coon last evening

of them , but we have no funds with which to
purchase anything for the llro department.

"A lire department is very expensive ; wo

La Bastlllo Eat Prise !
One hundred years ago to-day the
Bastlllo was taken. To-day is the an
niversary about which cluster the his
torical incidents that are commemo
rated by the Purls exposition. The fall
of the Bastille marked the beginning
of popular supremacy during the French
From the time of King John , or per
haps earlier , two towers rose at the
gate of St. Antoine , formerly a part of
the fortifications of Paris ; and in 1300 ,
at the command of Charles V , it was
changed into a bastille or fort , by
Hugues Aubroit. Six other towers of
mussivo structure were added and the
wnolo united by thick walla of
stone and surrounded by a ditch twonty-
flvo feet wido. Various extensions and
alterations were afterwards effected ,
but the building remained substantially
aa at first a huge , gloomy structure
with eight Btronu towers.
As the other fortifications wore removed -
moved , the name , Bastille , was restrict
ed to the fort at the gate of St. Antoino.
It was originally built ns a point for
military defense , but was also used as a
Crlson for political offenders. The
ulldor himself , was , according to the
popular account , the first prisoner con
fined within its walls. The "man of the
iron mask" and many other parsons of
equal celebrity have passed years of
their lives in its cape-like colls.
Nor was its last surrender its only .ono.
In 1180 tlio opponents of Charles VII.
tool ; lefugo in the Bastille , but wore
forced to capitulate from lack of provi
sions. In 1583 , the DuUo of Guise ob
tained possession and shut up the whole
Darliamont within its walls. On the
llth of January , 1019 , it was invested by
the forces of the Frondo and taken two
days later. It was to the cannon of the
bastille that Condo owed his retreat to
Paris after the light of Porto St. Antoine
toino in 1051. Hut the final surrender
and fall was the incident which made it
It was in tno month of Juno 1789 , that
tno French assembly declared the taxes
illegally levied and began its quarrel
with Louis XVI. Then followed turbu
lent times. Oil the llth of July , the
ministry was changed and the popular
Necker sot out in secret from Ver-
nillos. On the following day ,
the report of his dismissal was
circulated. The Parisian populace
flow to arms. It was a Sunday that
marked the first shedding of blood , as
the armed mob came in contact with n
royal German regiment. Terror now
changed to fury. The mob hurried to
the Hotel do Vlllo , to demand arms of
the electors sitting there , During the
night the gato-keopors were dispersed ,
the barriers burned and gunsmiths'
On Monday morning the electors in
vested the municipal ofllccrs with mili
tary power , and drew a plan for arming
the civic militia. They were to call
48,000 men , whose distinctive sign
should * bo the rod and blue cockade.
During the same morning the peopla
were plundering houses in search of
grain. They had broken open
the armory and rummaged out
the ancient armor. The rnbblo
wearing helmets and carrying pilcos
were overrunning the city. Arms were
demanded with loud shouts. In the
meanwhile evening drew on. The as
sembly accomplished nothing in the
way of quelling the tumult. It insisted
that the king should remove bis troops ,
and continued its session the greater
part of'tho night. The 14th of July be
gan to dawn.
The populace had continued to hover
about the Bastlllo during the whole of
the previous day. "To the Bastlllo" had
boon hoard repeatedly. The wish for
its destruction had boon expressed to
the deputies. A cry for arms was kept
up. A report was spread that the Ho
tel des In vahdcs contained u consider
able quantity , and thither the whole
crowd repaired. A fresh throng ar
rived. Cries against the Bastille grow
stronger. The mob began op
erations to carry out its
wishes. Two men mounted thereof
roof of the guard house and broke with
axes the chains which hold the bridge.
The latter foil ; the rabble rushed upon
it and to a second with the intention of
passing it In a like manner. A dis
charge of musketry brought it to a
stand. The electors
, henring'tho-noiso ,
sent two deputations requiring the
commandant to almit a detachment of
the Paris militia. The deputations ar
rived about the same timo. Amid the
soigo by the populace they could
scarcely bo hoard. Some shots were
fired from an unknown quarter. The
mob , thinking itself betrayed , rushed
forward to sot fire to the building. On
this the garrison began to llro with
gr.ipo. The French guards eamo up
with cannon ana begun u regular at
During the prococdings a note ad
dressed to Dolaunny , the gover
nor of the Bastille , was inter
cepted , which ndvibcd him to hold
out , assuring him of Immediate succor.
Dolaunay wished to blow up the fort ,
but his garrison interposed and obliged
him to surrender. The bridge was
lowered , The bcsolgors approached
praising to do no mischief. Tno crowd
rushed in and took possession. It was
half past live when the doctors heard
the shouts of victory. The mob crowded
into the hall bearing aloft a wounded
guard , crowned with laurels. A bloody
hand exhibited the quoo of Uoluuuuy
whoso head had boon stricken off. The
provoat was charged with treason ,
sought out , and killed.
Such were the events of the day. The
crowd was nma/.od that it had taken the
fortress with such ease. Seven prison
ers had been released. None knew
who they were or whence they came ,
The mob sought among the
ruins for instrument of torture ,
They gazed at the iron cells and won-
dcrod at the largo stone in the center
attached to an iron chain. The Bastille
had fallen. Its gray walls can servo no
more as a protection to tyrannical kings.
