Man > nay learn by experience , but , if wo

legislation , a railway corporation never
learns anything , Defeated upon point
after point , It como9 forward again to
fight over the same old ground , and
Beonis perfectly willing to throw upon
its stockholders the costs of repeating
the often tried nnd unsuccessful oxporl-
ments. Everywhere in this country the
railroads have from the first assumed a
hostile attitude toward all legislation
enacted with a view to regulating the
conduct of tholr biHinoss. and every
where they have yielded only when
driven from their positions by the
The course of railway legislation in
almost any state in the union might ho
cited as evidence of the plghcadudness
of railway nlllclnls , hut no inoro instruc
tive'lesson could ho road at this time
tliiiu that furnished by the sketch of
railway legislation in Iowa published
yesterday in the columns of this paper.
The railroads operating in Iowa con
tributed to the wave of anti-monopoly
sentiment which carried through ' .ho
granger laws of the early 70's.
They were bold in assorting tholr abso
lute freedom from publlo control of
whatever kind and insisted that they
were private enterprises conducted for
private profit , with no duties to the
pcoplo other than they jchoso to
perform. Their rates were ad
justed to favor ono and dlscrim-
Inato against another and when
complaints were heard upon nil sides
they Insolently aald that their partiality
nlTected none .but themselves. They
fought every olTort to subject" them to
legislative -control and when llnally a
maximum freight rate law was passed in
1874 thoyjrofttsod to pay any attention
whatever to it and contldontly carried
tholr cases to the United States supreme
Their confidence in this instance was
shortlived. They were rudely awakened
from the dream into which they had
boon lulled when they learned that that
tribunal had sustained the constitution
ality of those measured. The right of
the states to regulate railway rates was
distinctly and plainly ulllrmod. Beaten
on this point , they yielded a sullen obedience
dionco to the law , construing it whcrovor
possible to the injury of the shipper.
No olTort was omitted to make the
law obnoxious to the people and
at last these efforts proved successful
in securing the repeal of the statute.
Three railway commissioners remained ,
but these were so shorn of their power
that the railways regarded them as in
offensive and impotent.
For the next few years dabbling in
polities' seemed to have supplanted the
transportation of passengers and freight
as the purpose for which the companies
were incorporated , and by the lavish
distribution of railway favors they man
aged to stave olT all further legislation.
By 1838 the anti-monopoly forces found
themselves once moro in power , and
I despite the desperate resistance of the
I corporation lobby they enacted a String
ent law , placing in the hands of elective
commissioners the power to establish
reasonable maximum rates subject to
appeal to the regularly established judi
ciary of the stato.
Again the railways showed their dis
position to resist the law. Again they
tried to make the enforcement of its
provisions as obnoxious as possible to
the people. Special tarilTs and terminal
rates were withdrawn and distance
charges substituted conforming to the
letter of the law , but so excessive as to
bo extortionate. When the commission
ers omploy.od their power to construct
and promulgate a tariff of maximum
rates , the railways displayed their pro-
deliction for injunction proceedings by
securing a temporary restraining order
to prevent the board from putting the
now schedule into force. Here , too ,
thuy displayed a ouniiingncss in waiting
until only a few days before the now
rates were to become olToctivo before
bringing in the petition , with the express -
press design that the proceedings might
necessarily delay their enforcement. At
length , cornered in their own game of
litigation , with the temporary injunction
withdrawn by the court , they recognized
the futility of further opposition and
submitted unconditionally to the man
dates of the law. For four years they
have been operating under the reduced
rates fixed by the Iowa commissioners
and the threatened bankruptcy has not
' yet appeared. Not ono employe has boon
discharged solely on account of the maxi
mum rates , nor have the stockholders
discovered that their private property
has boon confiscated.
If the railways were inclined to listen
to the dictates of reason , hero is a les
son whoso moral might well bo taken to
heart. But corporations do not learn
by experience. The railways of Ne
braska , in part identical with these who
wont through the lire of Iowa legisla
tion , prefer to pay the penalty for each
now acquisition of knowledge. Tlio
same tactics will be pursued -Nebraska ,
with the same ultimate results.
COMMISSIONER GAUNKAU has led some
of the newspaper people of Chicago to
believe that the Nebraska building may
, have to bo closed in consequence of the
' action of Auditor Moore in demanding
that receipted vouchers shall accompany
the commissioner's drafts upon the
World's fair appropriation , Auditor
Moore Is now cheeking up the commis
sioner's July accounts , and if ho abides
by the recent decision of the supreme
court ho will draw warrantsonly for suoh
sums as are covered by vouchers. In
short , the commissioner , under the rul
ing of the court , cannot draw money in
advance covering the estimated expend
itures for a month or a quarter. While
this may handicap the commissioner in
some respects , and revolutionize his
methods of doing business , it wllj not
justify any attempt to close the Ne
braska exhibit. Mr. Garneau certainly
could not seriously ontortulii such an
idou , The power which created the
otllclul position occupied by him also

As the time for the mooting of con
gress draws nearer It becomes more ap-
parent that the campaign which Mr.
Cleveland has been prosecuting in his
party ' for the repeal of the stiver pur
chase act has been far more successful
than was expected. The president secma
to have shown exceedingly good judgment -
mont In the conduct of the campaign ,
and it la by no means improbable that a
good share of the credit for this is duo
to that exceedingly shrewd politician ,
Colonel Lament , secretary of war , who
is j splendidly equipped for almost any
task requiring political acumen. About
the . first niovo the presi
dent made , after having induced Mr.
Carlisle to abandon the free silver cause , |
was to make an adherent of Mr. Crisp.
Tiio ex-speaker desired ro-olectton , and
it was not'dlfllcitlt to convince hfm that ,
the easiest if not the only way to secure |
it was to bo in harmony with the admin
istration. Crisp will again bo speaker ,
and , if his recent utterances are sin
cere , the administration will have no
inoro faithful friend nnd supporter in
either branch of congress than ho. Not
only docs ho favor the repeal of the sll-
* vor purchase clause of the Sherman net
but in order to insure that result
ho is prepared to have the L'ulos
of the house framed according to
the precedent sot by the last republican
congress. In both thoso. respects the
Georgia congressman is thoroughly and
completely n Cleveland man. Having
inado sure of Crisp the next most important - (
portant person to bo converted was Sen
ator Voorhoes , who , as chairman of the
senate committee on finance , could exert
a decided inlluunco. The Indiana sena
tor was a most pronounced nnd uncom
promising free silver advocate and very
generally regarded by the anti-free sil
ver men as a hopeless case. It cannot bo
over three months , if so long , since ho
declared that under no circumstances
would ho support a measure for the
unconditional repeal of the Shot-man law.
But unless Mr. Voorhcos has again
changed his mind within the last few
days lie is now an adherent of the ad
ministration and is willing that the pur
chase of silver by the government shall
bo stopped unconditionally.
There have been other conversions ,
but it is sufficient to mention the most
prominent and important. Of course
there are free silver democrats whom
the president has not been able to con
vert to his views and mil not bo. But
as the situation now appears lie does not
need them. If this shall prove to bo so ,
and the most trustworthy opinion pro-
diets it , Mr. Cleveland may fairly chum
to have achieved a signal victory , for the
odds were very largely against him when
ho started lit on the campaign. Being
on top there is reason to believe thafj
the president has made himself HO secure
in his position that he will have no
difficulty in retaining it. Nobody now
questions that the silver purchase clause
of the Sherman act will bo repealed in
the house and it is very generally con
ceded that a measure tor this purpose
can bo passed in the senate.

Not the least serious and deplorable
feature of the existing distrust and de
pression is the condition of the labor
market. Within the last few months
tons of thousands of workers have boon
thrown out of employment and every
day adds to the already vast army of
j idle labor. All over the eauntry in
dustrial enterprise is being restricted.
Mills and' factories are suspending
operations altogether or greatly cur
tailing production. Michinory which
year ago was woricing to its full
capacity ia now motionless or is
being worked but a part of the
timo. In scores of mills the hum
of the spindle has ceased and
in hundreds of factories and workshops
whore a few months ago the hum of busy
industry was hoard there is now silence.
In every industrial city of the
country there are hundreds of
willing workers idle where a
yeau ago there were almost none , and
the indications are that this already
large army of unemployed will continue
This is a most unfortunate state of af
fairs and it is to bo apprahondod that it
will become much worse before there is
a change for the bettor. It promises to
place hundreds of thousands of the wage
earnora of the country in a position to
experience much hardship and priva
tion during "the coining winter.
It threatens the creation of an
extraordinary demand upon the
resources of charity. It has already
caused some hardship , but people can
manage to get along at this season of
the year on a comparatively small al
lowance. Just now It is simply a matter
of enough to oat to sustain life and the
plainer it is the bettor. A few months
hence moro food will bo needed , warmer
clothing nnd fuel , increasing materially
the expenses of every family. This is
the season of preparation for the larger
demands of the future , but it will bo lost
to the tens of thousands of laboring people
ple who are thrown out of employment
now and if they are not able to procure
work later on in the year theirs mmt bj
a hard and bitter experience before the
coming winter is passed.
Perhaps it is not well to take a too
pessimistic view of the situation. It is
possible that the depression which is
proving so disastrous to labor inuy not
bo prolonged beyond a month or two.
There are some whoso judgment Is'wor
thy of respectful consideration who confi
dently predict that as soon as the currency
question is properly settled there will bo
a restoration of confidence that will carry
with it u revival of business. It is to bo
hoped that this will bo the eaie , and it
is also to bo hoped thaC congress can bo
induced to bhuro this fooling , so that
there shall bo no unnecessary delay '
in reaching a proper settlement
of the currency question. Un
doubtedly that would Imyp an
excellent ulToct , but that it would re
move all reason for dhtrustnnd all cause
of depression is by no means assured.
Hvory intelligent student of existing
conditions must know that the shutting
down of mills and factories is not wholly
duo to the money stringency and thu
laok of duMnoM. iltbwovor largo apart
thcso may fairly uViv&fliimeil to play In
producing 1 the Industrial depression ,
there ' is another iilllnenco nt work which
will continue to ijpqrnlo after Iho cur-
roney question is deposed of. This Is
the uncertainty nndt apprehension n l"
what the democratic congress and oxocu-
Jlvd-may do In regard to the economic
policy I of the : co'untry. The fear
that the party in qoptrol of the govern
ment . may carry \c\vltt \ \ reform to nn ex
treme that will bo , seriously injurious if
not destructive twrnttny of'thcindustries '
elk the country may prov ? to bo n groundl
less fear. There Is reason to believe
that Mr. Cleveland intends to restrain
the radical element of his party and interpose - '
torposo to jirovont tariff legislation that
might : bo damaging or destructive. But
the fear ox tats , nnd it bin its inlluonco
In inducing manufacturers to curtail
operations. The president "might dispel

THE farmers in some of the Now IStig-
land states are unable to got sufficient
help to harvest their crops , which nro
more than ordinarily bounteous , nnd tills
notwithstanding the fact that there is a
great deal of unemployed labor In tlio
cities and the farmers are offering good
wages. Ills said that they are willing
to pay as high as Si'i a month with board

a similar experience last year , and there
was difficulty in the northwest also in.
procuring I sufllclont labor during har
vest time , although extraordinary In
ducements were offeree ; , but there was
loss 1 unemployed labor last year than
there is now. There are several ex
planations j of the indisposition of city
laborers to go to the farms. Work on
the . farm is hard , especially to these not
familiar with it , and then farm life gets
in n short time to bo very monotonous.
But an able-bodied man but of work and
with no prospect in the city but that of
Idleness , would deserve no sympathy if
ho refused for thcso reasons a chance for
farm work at fair wages and his sub
THKRE is something attractive about
the proposition of the Colorado pcoplo
to issue silver certificates upon bullion
deposited in the vaults of the state , but
it will hardly commend itself to the
shrewd business judgment of the men of
the west. If Coiorado can issue n cur
rency based on deposits of bullion , Wyo
ming could as easily1 do the same with
coal as a basis of. circulation , or Ne
braska with corn , or Dakota with wheat.
The southern farmers could authorize
bunks of circuiatioif with cotton as the
basis , and Virginia and Carolina people
could do the same with tobacco and rico.

SAVINGS banks throughout the east
are rapidly following the example sot by
the resolution of the Now York and
Brooklyn presidents to take advantage
of the rule requiring notice for the with
drawal of deposits. Whatever the effect
of this action may bo upon the present
condition of affuirs it corta'nly ' has great
significance , in that it denotes a confi
dence on the part of these banks that at

confidence will have boon restored so
that their resources will remain unim

SHOIITUNINO the working time at the
local factories and shops imposes a con
siderable hardship upon the laborers ,
but is moro satisfactory than would bean
