rilURSDAY , JUNE 1 , 1899
Populists over the state are
greatly disappointed with Gov.
The hearty welcome extended to
Admiral Sohloy by the citizens of
Omaha during his short visit in our
state metropolis is appreciated by
the whole state.
The remains of Col. Stotsonburg
were retained at Lincoln over Sun
Ir- day for Memorial services , where
they wore forwarded to the national
cemetery at Washington for inter
As yet there has no republican
offered to accept the nomination
for congress in the Sixth district.
At the present time Wilcox of
North Platte , and Kinkaid of
O'Neil , seem to bo the only ones
mentioned who do not decline the
honor. Either of them arc worthy
and could bo elected.
The Beacon is to bo congratulated
od upon the honoHty it expressed
last week in acknowledging the in
dications of prosperity so manifest
in Broken Bow. Wo second the
Beacon's motion to celebrate the
Jbourth of July , which would bo a
tilling acknowledgement of the im
proved condition of the times.
' While the light holds out to burn
the vilest Dinner may return. "
Now thai Norriu Brown has an
nounced his firm determination not
to run for congress again , Senator
Currin ought to bo urged with re.
nowod energy to accept the nomi
nation. Ho is the man who can
carry the district if any rapublioan
can. Ilia splendid record in the
stale senate last winlor has proved
his worlh , and shown lo the people
just what they need. From Kern
and Greene to Currio would bo a
great big step upward , but the
people could easily stand the shook.
Hurrah for Curriel Ord Quiz.
The Callatvay Independent is
calling for the names of the pop
candidates that want office this fall ,
m order that the public may bo
informed as lo iheir qualitioalions.
It is evident that the editor of the
Independent is not well acquainlod
with pop politics in Custer county.
The court house ring will have the
slate prepared on the date of Ihe
convention , and none others need
apply , Another feature of pop
politics in Custer county is that
"they do not seek oflloo , The office
seeks the man so hard that ho finally
consents to run , for the eako of the
parly , "
After reading Dr. Mullin's in
troductory to his speech , it la no
surprise that ho steps out boldly in
favor of the republican administra
tion and its prsuoiplcs , since bio
experience and obsorvalionajn the
Spanish-American war. The only
surprise is that as a son of a Union
soldier , who fled from his southern
homo to join the Union ranks in
defense of the flig , that ho could
have over boon the radical demo *
oral he once WAS. Buc blood will
tell , and there are thousands more
who have been blinded by demo *
pop sophistry , who will not bo slow
to aesert themselves in favor of a
prosperous country and a wiae ad.
The wave of MoKinJoy prosperity
has placed its magic touch upon
nearly everything the farmer pro-
duccs , yet there is occasionally a
political moBsbaok that will not
concede it. The cow that four
years ago could bo bought for ton
dollars , as readily brings forty dol.
larfl today. The borso that you
could not find ealo for at any orioo
throi1 , four and five years ago , is
soiling readily on the market for
from $ -10 to $120. Hogs , corn ant
wheat arc cash at good figures
Land and city properly have a mar
ket value now that did not have
four years ago. Everybody has
employment that wants work , at
remunerative wages , business is
good in all lines of trade , and mono ;
is more plenty than ever beforu.
Gen. Granl was one of the men
of his day who had little patience
with the follow who opposed hia
country in war , whether right o
wrong. In spending of the Blexi
can war , of which ho was oppose (
lo the principles on which it wa
waged , he saya in his memoirs
'Experience proves that the man
who obstructs a war in wbiob hi
nation isonaauod , no matter whotho
right or wrong , occupies no enviable
l > laoo in life or history. Bettor fo
him , individually , to advocate "war
pestilence and famine , " than to ac
as obstructionist to a war nlroad ;
: > ogun. The history of the dofoatec
ribel will bo honorable hereafter
compared with that of the norlhorn
man who aided him by conopirin |
agaiusl his government while protected
toctod by it. The moat favorable
posthumous history the stay.at-home
trailer can hope for is oblivion. "
TAXING T1IE UAILUOAUS.
One of Iho ohiof howls made by
the populists while the state waa
under republican rule , was that the
railroads wore not compelled to pay
their just proportion of taxes.
When the republican rascals wore
turned out and honral popa put m
their places , it waa to be expected
that thia atato of things would bo
changed , and that the corporations
would bo required to bear a little
more of the poor man's burden.
Railroads ara assessed by a board
composed of the governor and the
principal stale officers , and it was a
matter of great surprise to many
that the first reform bjard of equal ,
iration , with Governor Holoomb at
its head , adopted without a change ,
the assessment made by tbo pro *
vious republioan board. The aub *
sequent wholesale dialribution of
free railroad passes among all the
state oIlioorH from governor down
to janiUT , explained thu matter in
the mintlH of many , however. But
when Poynter took the reins of
government , it wax predicted that
reforms would begin to operate
about the Plate house. Another
Hoard of equalization oomplelud its
labors the ollnrday.
During Ihe IftMl year ruilrond
property in Nebraska has greatly
increased in value. The Burlington
iat ) built a million dollar depot at
Omaha , the Missouri Pacific a fine
sUlion al Lincoln , and every road
) | ioraling in Iho slalo baa added to
Is rolling Block and equipment.
low much did the late board ot
equalization increase tbo assessment
of these roads ? Not one cent !
rVlien a poor farmer cornea into
lOHHctiHion of an old spavined mule ,
> r buys a department store buggy ,
or a little piece of poor land , the
assessor always gets them down on
iis list the very next Irip ho makes ;
ml these grinding and soulless cor-
> orations are allowed to go scot
ree , with thuir millions of dollars
of added property , and at the hauda
of a sot of men who wore elected
o office by poor farmers , and who
)080 as the champions of the down *
redden and oppreasaed , against the
yranny of corporate capital. And
he distribution of passes in blocks
of five still goes on at the state
louao , and a few months honoo thia
same unsavory gang of bogua ro-
formora will go out over Iho state
crying : "Behold how faithfully
we have lorvod the poor dear com
mon people ; gvo us a ohanco to do
it some more. " O , reform , what a
