KEARNEY , Neb. , February 16
To the Editor of Tnit BEE :
In THE OMAUA BEE o'f the 10th
inst. , was a report of the discussion
between the legislative committee on
the one side and the managers of the
U. P and B. & M. railroads on the
other , from which wo quote :
"Senator Harrington , of Gage
county , naked him ( Mr. Touzalin ) to
explain why it was that a car of
freight could go from Chicago to Lin-
colu for § 52 80 , and then § 38 bo
charged for forwardiLg it , to Beatrice ,
Its destination. "
Some time last week" Mr. F. J.
Svritz , of Kearney , received a carload
of f'irniture from Chicago via the 0. ,
B & Q r.n-1 B. & M. roads , and ho
paid § H19.50 freight on the eame.
Now , the distance from Chicago to
Lincoln via 0. , B. & Q. Js 546 railea ;
the distance from Ghic o to Kearney
via 0. , B. & Q in C82 milsD. The
ducriminatiou teems to bo thus :
To carrying 1 car G82 miles ( Chicago
cage to Kearney ) $21950
To carrying 1 car 340 miles ( Chicago
cage to Lincoln ) 52 80
To carryintr 1 car 1E6 miles ( Lin
coln to Kexrney ) 5166 70
Thus it appears that the road car
ried a car from Chicago to Lincoln at
nine ceuis and six mills ( $0.096) ) per
mile ; and then they carried o car from
Lincoln to Kearney at § l.22 cents
per mile. Tua discrimination per
mile is thus :
Rate per mile from Lincoln to Kear
ney § 1.225
Pate pr mila from Chicago to Lin-
corn P.OS6
Discrimination per mil * against
Kearney 5L129
The above comp irison seonvj pretty
tough. Will Mr/Tonzalln or Senator
Hirringtcn please rise and o'plain ?
and oblige A GBANOEB.

Bill. $
Special Cjrrespindence of HThoBw | * ,
There is au apparentdjeposmon.pn
the part or'the iiouaS-no dodgi&m-
portant legislation. The victory
gained in the election of General Van
Wyck to the United States senate
should h&vo encouraged the present
legislature in well-doing , There never
was a representative bcdy of men
placed in a position to et.ii d well with
their cons'ituanta ai irnn the present
legislature. It was and is within the
piiwer cf the presint legiclaturo to do
much in bringing the corporations tea
a aenso of tiicic true relations to the
neople of this cimraonweaHh , as well
as to have taught the various aspiring
young attorneys , whose aim 3.26ms to
be too often to promote their own in
terests by trifling with public trusts.
It seems to be the highest ambition of
too many of our young lawyers to BO
euro corporation patronage by cov
ertly acting in their interest. The
introduction of the prohibition amend
ment at this time is a eerious mistake ,
and I am afraid lull finally result in e.
positive injury to the people by su
bordinating to it all the more impor
tant , political issues at present agi
tating the minds ot Nebraskiaus , and
more especially those issaea relating
to corporations and their relations to
the people.
Most of the members of the house
at least ahnw an Anxiety to imko a
record as nuti mon < poltats , but I am
afraid that many resolutions and bills
of "an impracticable character" h&ve
been introduced for rnero buncombo.
Some of tluso m n are erer so ready
upon the slightest cause to consult the
interests of ttie railroads , as * well ns
always being chary of antagonizing
the corporation magnates. 1 am get
ting itt the true inwardness of eomo
of iho methods by which a certain
class of record-making representatives
expect to satisfy the people with their
course us hborers in the public inter
est , while on tlie other hand they bear
close relniion to the different corpora
tions , and in many cases are in affilia
tion with thy various rings attempting
to make raida Upon thn public treai-
ury.It 'onld be well for the voters in
this etato to closely Rcru'inizi the
public and inside record of their rep-
rcsjiitatives. So that trust may not
be repcted in ahadoirs , too tmny pub
lic men a.wk only to promote tha pub
lic itittrest , juu as long ns their own
perairi.il advancement is concerjcd.
Minyagnt-d measure can only ba
massed by pledging support tu tome
sctieme ( fa d.ingoroua charecter.
This is a great evil , and should be
guarded against by letting every meaa-
ure eund upon its merits.
There are at present before thu
housa many bills relating to tbo re
funding ot municipal ai.d school din-
trie : indabiednesB , as woil aa bills to
legalize public debts that have been
declared illegal by the courts. So ne
of these bills have merit , while oth
ers are bad in priuciple.-
There is a strong lobby at work in
tin1 iu'emtg of the penitentiary ring.
1 stated yesterday that ihe'comruittee
of Carna * appoint ing had recommended
nearly § 50,000 ft r improvomeuta on
the pen , while Spuiker Shedd'a com
mittee , of which Buley , of Washing
ton , is c'inirmati , think and know that
less tlian $5,000 is all that Is neces-
cary. It was moved to refer the re-
per : uf the house committee on peni-
tautiaiy to the committee on w Ay a and
Mr. Hall , of CMS , objected to this.
It waa too lale in the day to refer
such matters to that committee.
Mr. Howe , of Nomaln , thought it
should be reterrcd to the committee
on ways and means.
iMr. Slocuinb , of Jefferson , wanted
it refn.-ruil to the committee of the
whole , to bo taken up with the general
appropriation bill , which waa done.
Mr. Shick , of Nemaha , wanted the
rai road bills , which came up on
cpecial order this afternoon , to be
considered in the following order :
The bill to prohibit the acceptance'of
free rai'road passes , bills to prohibit
txfr ii > n , bills fix-ng regular passen
ger tariff , and & bill for a railroad
Mr. Whedon , of Lancaster , amend
ed by providing that in the debate
each member be limited to twenty five
Mr. Jensen , cf Butler , amended
the amendment by making it fifteen
Mr. Moore , of York , didn't like the
resolution. It was for the house to
take up these bills as it saw fit , "It
is unfair fur the gentleman from. Lan
caster to try and put a gag upon the
most important measure that can
come before the house. "
Mr. Case , of Clay , thought it beat
to consider the bills first in a general
way , and then decide on one that
would cover the whole question.
Mr. Corrcll , of Thayer , and Howe ,
of Nemaha , thought all bills should
ba considered in rc-sul.it order.
Mr. Broatch , of Djuglaa , was In fa
vor of the resolution'of the gentleman
from Lincaster. The gentleman from
York had advocated the gag law yes
terday in the prohibition debate , and
ho should favor the gag law to-day.
Mr. Ransom , of Otoe , thought the
house should take up the free pass
bill /rst / ? , and then the members would
be free to legislate on railroad dis
crimination against the people.
Both resolutions and amendments
were referred , and the house decided
to consider the bills as they came up
on the general bill.
The whole afternoon was devoted
to tte discussion of bills numbers 19
and 95. The former provides for an
act to make railroad , canal , bridge and
ditching companies , and companies
and parsons responsible for material
furmshfcd and labor performtd in the
construction , repnir or improvement
of any such works , and to secure tha
laborer and material man a lien for
his material furnished and labor per
The committee reported the bill
back to the house recommending its
ptssage , mid the report wvj adopted.
Bill No 95 p'ovides for virtually
'he ome law as does No. 19 , but is
not so binding.
The com-uitiea of tha wh la ru
ported it iuok recommend ini ; its pis
sage , but the houss indefinitely post
poned f ction on the icport.
The hnuso then sdpurnsd without
reaching the uiosi important bills ,
which will noi likely coiao up for sev
eral days.
The senate tock up the day in 3i-
cusMng a bill for an act to provide for
a system of public instruction. So
great was the interest manifested in
the bill that ouly eiyht of the mem
bers fell asleep pending the dabite.
