THE apportionment bill framed in

THOSE parties who believe that

themselves seriously mistaken.
THE governor of Connecticut re-

THE Canadians propose to engage in

IT is stated that nearly 1,000,000

Canada to Pennsylvania this year.
The greater portion of this will be for
railroad iron. Capital doesn't seem
4.0 be very much frightened over the
prospect of anti-monopoly legislation
which they know l snre to come.
THE Heraldry * that capital shrinks
from that soecies of Isroeny which
confiscates public property for private
peculation. Thu is exactly what the
monopolies are doing with the prop
erty of the producers .of Nebraska ,
and if capital has f o suddenly exper
ienced "a change of heart the people
will be gUd to know nf the fact.
THE presence of the Prince of Wales
at the marriage of Mr. Leopold
Rothschild has caused much satis
faction in Jewish circles , as , following
close on the speeches of tne Crown
Prince of Germany , It is regarded as
a sign that there is no royal sympathy
with the persecutions of the Jews. No
English prince has visited a synagogue
since 1809 , when three of the royal
dukes attended a service at once.
JTflfi rilrod attorneys at Lincoln
profess themselves amazed at the
proposition to asiess the earnings of
the railroads independent of the real
estate and personal property which
are taxed locally. Taey are attempt
ing to persuade oar legislators that
such a bill would bo a cruel and com
munistic raid on crpltal unauthorized
by precedent and contrary to justice.
Now the fact of the matter is that Ne
braska is one of a few states who hsve
not yet imposed such a tax on the
earnings of railroads. Sac. 1213 of
the laws of Wisconsin relating to riU I
road corporations reads as follows :
SEC. 1213. The annual license fees In
for the operation of such railroads
shall be ns follows :
1. Four per centum of the gross
earnings of all railroads , except those
operated on pile and pontoon , or pontoon
teen bridge * , whose gross earnings
equal or exceed three thousand dol-
Jtrs per mile per annum of operated
rtilroad. el
2. Five dollars per mile of operated eldi
railroad of all railroads whose gross di
parsings exceed one thousand five diU
hundred dollars per mile ver annum , U
and are less than three thousand del
lars per mile per annum of operated fn
road , and in addition two per centum
of their gross earnings in excess of fif
teen hundred dollars * e
per mile per an
num.
3. Five dollars per mile of operated oe
_ _ road by all cnmp nie whose gros
earning * are less i h nSftem hundred hai
dollars per mile per annum.
4. Two centum of
per the gross ed
earnincs of all
railroads which are
operated opin pile and pontoon , or "P
pontoon bridge * , which gross earnings
( hall be returned as to such parts ra1wt
thanof M an within the state. wt
One half of such license fee shall
beoaid at the time the licenu to ra
IMJM , and one half on or before the the
ttfith day of August in each year. |
JENSEN'S BILL
THE BEE publishes to day in ful
Mr. Jensen's bill to regulate freigh
and passenger transportation in Ne-
braaka. It is decidedly the most care
fully drawn , comprehensive and satis
factory measure which has yet neen
presented for yubllc approval.
The first section provides rgains
discrimination in charges to shippers
ana receivers , and forbids the grant
ing of rebates , drawbacks or sny other
compensation or remuneration on rc-
oouut of shipments. This provision
strikes at the root of one of the most
serious outrages practice d by the mo
nopolies against our i reducers.
Section 2 provides that tvery rail
road corporation in the state shal
provide cars and suitable facilities for
shipping , handling and receiving
freight at every station on the road ,
and section 4 , that a fixed and deter
mined schedule rate of tariffs shall be
publicly posted in every freight aud
passenger office on the various roads ,
which schedule and classification shall
not be changed excepting upon ninety
days' public notice. Under a rigid
enforcement of this enactment , the
various rings of coal , grain and lum
ber dealers , favored by the corpora
tions , would bo broken up , and every
shipper of freight would be. placed on
equal terms , while the ruinous effects
on trade , caused by fluctuating rates
on freight , wonH ba entirely obvi
ated.
ated.Sections
Sections 5 , 6 and V relate to the
tariff rates which , under the provisions
of this act , the company may charge
upon the various classes of freight of
fered them for transportation. Under
the provisions of section 8 the pas
senger tariff is fixed at three cents a
mile on first class trains , and two
cents per mile on second class or
mixed trains. This sum is no lower
than is charged for the same
class of service In Iowa and
is ample remuneration for the service.
The penalty for each and every
violation of any or tl 9 provisions ol
this act is a fine not less than ten nor
more than one hundsed dollars , or Im
prisonment in the county jail , and all
acts in conflict are to ba repealed on
its passsge.
This paper sincerely hopes that the
legislature will not permit iUelf to be
drawn aside by the tactics of the rail
road attorneys from the favorable con
sideration of Mr. Jensen's bill. It
meets the great question of the hour
more fully and more satisfactorily
than any-of the many propositions
now before that body. It is framed
in the interest of Nebraska producer ?
which the railroad companies declare
is their own interesf , and if it fails ol
passsga the people will know at whose
door to lay the fault.
"PBO BOKO PPELICO , " whose real
name is E. F. Test , poblhhed a long
communication in the Lincoln Journal
advocating a boardof immigration and
the { expenditure of a large appropria
tion to defray the expenses of such a
commission. He B causes THE BEE cf
Inconsistency in advocating nerepaper
advcrtisirg and refusing to applana
the board scheme. Nowif there is one
thing for which THE BKE his obtained
credit it hag bsen for its consistency.
This paper since its foundation has
never crawfished upon a single subject
and we defy ' 'Pro Bono Publico , " or
any other man to point out an instance
where THE BEE hat gone back on its
record on any question or any issue.
We have found out from our own ex
perience that newspaper advertising ,
or , as we staled in a late editorial ,
"the liberal use of printer's ink" will
do more for the cause of immigration
than twenty beards of emigrant cum
miwioner * . When in reply to 50,000
Immigration copies of THE BEE , over
15,000 replies were received , we have
good reason to point to the showing as
unexampled in the history of newt
paper advertising.
THE BEE has no axe to grind in * this
matter. It has shown our legislature
what it considers the best and cheapesi
method of calling attention to tbe
resources of this state as a field for
immigration. They must be the
judges of Its value.

of ditches ten feet wide and 100 feet
long ] ( The sand accumulating from
theexcavation ofthcseditches is thrown
on each side , and used by the ter
rapins ; to sun themselves and Ity their
eggs in , which , if counted , would go
up in the million ? , and can be raked
usi uu by the bushel. In the winter
season the terrapins remain Imbedded
in ! the mud of the ditches , where they
stay until spring time , never touching
Sisi morsel of food. A system of
sluices enables Mr. Dirlon to keep
the ditches full of silt water , and
drain them at pleasure , and he is not
at all dependant on the tide for that
purpose.
The number of terrapins on the
farm , as far as can be ascertained and
'
ny the closest calculation , is between
20,000 and 25,000 , and in the cnnrao
of the next three or four years will be
0B
something ( bird to calculate. Aboat
May 1 , Mr. Dorlon makes his purchase
of terrapins from the country people
on Mississippi snnnd , and tikes all he
can secure at $2 a dozen , and thit
generally averages 8,000 a year added
to his farm , outside of those bred
therein. The Inhabitants of Mia issip-
pi and Alabama hunts the terrapins
with dogs trained for that purpose.
The dog barks when he finds one , and
the hunter immediately secures it by
goin ; to the spot where the dog points.
The coat of feeding the terracing ,
which , aa we have said , la only done in
the summer , is abont $1 per dozen for
the seison , and the price per dozen in
New York has varied from $18 to S8.
The food , which consists of crabs and
fish , is caught with a seine , in front of
the farm , and really very litllo ex
pense is attached to the raising of.
these valuable land tortoises. Jklr.
Djrlon begins to ship abont Oc'oher
1st , and then on to about May 10th.
He generally sends his to Sav-nnah by
rail , and thence to New York by
steamer | , averoeing about 12,000 a sea
son , and had it not been for a disas
trous hurricane , which some time ago
washed out Mr. Dorlon's farm , it
would be to-day one of the grea' est
terrapin ( farms in the world. He can
ship all he can get , for there is a
ready market f"r theo drlicacioa.
