bridge charter she will remain with

THE Republican assorts that THE
BEK has taken advertising at rates
that they would not accept. That
may possibly bo true where aomo
party ordered an advertisement in
both papers without inquiring about
rates and when they came to settle
with THE BEE wcro charged at our
regular rates , while the Republican
Vtook / advantage of them in the absence
of a contract and charged them two
prices. Wo don't pretend to regulate
our rates by the Republican. We
have one rate for all patrons and they
charge one man r , dollar and nnothe
man ton cents f'or the same advertise

TUB commissioners of emigration
mvo been playing a bold game of
Dluffin threatening to close up Castle
Garden unless the Now York logisla-
uro would vote them $250,000
orthwith , to defray their expenses
or the next fiscal year. The supor-
ntondent of the labor bureau aayn :
'It is only n blind , or a device to
care the Albany folks into appro-
riating the money. The expectation
s that congress will pass the
Jill recently introduced into
ho house , authorizing a tax
f fifty cents per capita 'on all
mmigrants landing , not only at Castle
3ardon but at all ports of the United
States , nnd until' that expectation is
isappointod no appropriation bill
vill go through the legislature. The
ommissionors , meanwhile , must go aa
veil as they can. If they wcro to
lese the garden , the steamship com
mutes would como together and make
> roper provision for the protection of
ho immigrants. If the commission-
ra had not been foolish , they would
mvo accepted the very liberal propoai-
ion of the steamship companies'to pay
liom 50 cents per capita. Since that
imo Judge Blatchford has decided
tiat they need not pay anything ; but
von as it is they nro willing to pay
5 cento per capita , and this , they
ontond , is ample for the support of
ho garden , if the management is as
conomical and intelligent as it ought
o bo. "
Meanwhile Caallo Garden remains
open and is just as lively as it over
las boon since it was opened for
European immigrants.
THK first move to dislodge the land
arrant robbers has begun in congress.
? ho house judiciary committee has
locided to report at once in favor of
he forfeiture of land granted by the
; gvornmont to those railroads which
mvo not as yet begun the construct
ion of'their roads , and to ask the
lousu for permission to make supple
mental reports on the land grants of
ho other uncompleted railroads , as
hey shall bo prepared. The seven
ompaniea whoso land grants the judi-
iary committu thinks should bo for-
cited to the government , inasmuch
hey liavo not attempted to comply
with the conditions upon which the
runts were made , are the Gulf and
Ship Island railroad of Missis-
ippi , which was 'granted 052,800 ,
ores in 1850 ( grant expired in
800) ) , the Tuscaloosa and Mobile , of
lississippi , the Mobile and New Or-
eans , of Alabama , Mississippi and
Louisiana ( both grants expired in
SCO ) , the Cooaa and Tennessee , in
\labama , granted 140,160 acres in
850 ( grant expired in 180(1) ( ) . Uio Ely.
on and Beard's BlutF ( grant expired
n 18GU ) , the Savannah and Albany ,
n Alabama ( grant expired in 1807) ) ,
' the Iron Mountain , * of Arkansas
grant expired in 1871. )
Those are all small roads , with
mall grants. The action of the com-
nitteo , however , is taken as indicative
f the intention of the committee to
.leal strictly with the roads
vhoao land grants are unearned
l > y construction.
Millions upon millions of ucrca grant ,
d to the IVcilio roads have either
> eon forfeited by failures to comply
vith charter provisions or huvo legally
averted to the pnoplo for homestead
ottlemont by the lapio of time einco
ho roads were completed ,
It is to bo hoped that the action of
ho houao committee is the entering
vedgo for reclaiming these forfeited
ands and compelling the highwaymen

The recognized position of Tin :
&s the most widely circulated
per in thss city and sUto has not boc
called in question for years. We hav
sought no controversy with local con
temporaries concerning circulation
because they have long since ceased t
bo rivals in tito newspaper bus
lies ? . They are simply largo job printtn
concern with a email newspaper np
pondage. But of late the claim o
The Republican that it has caught n
with Tnr. Br.i : in circulation has boo
taken up by papers unfriendly to Tit
BEE and an attempt was made t
crcato the impression that Tin ; Tti :
is on the down grade.
As a matter of busincs
THE BKE mot' thcso statement
with an exhibit of its circulatio
backed by affidavits by the Icssoo o
its city circulation and its busincs
manager. This exhibit waa in over )
respect complete. It covered th
city circulation for every montl
during a period of 18 months , ant
the general circulation of the Dail ;
during the five months ending Apri
15th , 1882 , and the weekly circula
tion'for three months ending Fobru
ory 15th , 1882.
incidentally , THE BEB nlso offeree
to pay one hundred dollars to the
manager of The Omaha Republicai
for a aworn exhibit of the circulation
of that payer , lot it bo what it may ,
and an additional ono hundred dollars
to St. Joseph's hospital , if the exhibit
made under oath for The Omaha Re
publican would show a general circu-
ation equal to one-six'th of the
general circulation of TUB BKE.
This was an offer The Republican
could hardly aflord to ignore in viorr
of their pretended catching up with
Tin : BEB. They had our statement
before them and they could certainly
toll by their books , whether they
could make a showing that would entitle -
title them to the money. But
instead of facing the music , they
mot our exhibit with an ovanion by
claiming that they had too much
other business to attend to at present ,
and their advertising patronage was
the best proof of their superiority as a
circulating medium. This has. been
followed up by a braggart editorial
concerning the liberal patronage by
Omaha merchants of The Republican's
advertising columns , coupled with the
claim that thcso merchants know what
they are doing and prefer to pay larger
sums to The Republican than they
would pay to THE BFE for the same
It is true that The Republican
makes a showing ot liberal patronage ,
but that ia by no means a proof that
the paper stands high as an
advertising medium. Wo have
soon many hotel registers covered
with acres of advertisements , but
this fact affords no proof that they
circulate to any alarming extent.
It is"a disngraco to Nebraska jour
nalism , but nevertheless a fact , that
the business men in Omaha and foreign -
oign advertisers have boon systemati
cally imposed on by a sot
of unprincipled confidence men.
Representatives of The Republican
have exacted money from advertisers
at homo and abroad under false pre
tenses that would consign them to the
penitentiary if they were engaged in
any other business. It a man would
sell a galvanized watch for solid gold ,
or sell ton , ounces of sugar for a
pound , or thirty inches of cloth
for a yard , ho would bo considered
a swindler , and no better than a com
mon thief. And yet these confidence
operators have deliberately imposed
upon merchants and other patrons by
oiling them they had thousands of
circulation whore they had hundreds ,
and by persistently tolling thorn that
their paper , as a medium , reached
a largo class of people thatcouldnotbo
reached by any other in Omaha. Wo
have boon very sorry for thcdupos , who
live abroad and have not boon able to
inform themselves correctly , but
Omaha business men do not deserve
much sympathy as long as they have
the moans at their command to verify
the respective claims by insisting upon
an honest exhibit.
Another class of people have boon
gulled and swindled who ought to
prosecute the scoundrels as they do-
nerve. Wo refer to benevolent eo-
ciotios , churches and professional men
who have been robbed by those con
fidence men both in The Republican
and Herald , under the moat brazen
It happens very often that parties
desire to advortiaa by dodgers that
are folded into the newspapers for de
livery to city subscribers by carrier.
When such parties ask how many
dodgers It will take to supply the cur
rier circulation of The Ilorald or
Republican , they are told about two
thousand , and they arc made to pay
for two thousand , when as a fact The
Republican only delivers 450 and The
Herald about ( ! 50 , robbing their pat
rons in the first place of the excess
paid for what they did not p/int 'for
them and did not circulate , and in
the next place robbing thorn by ex
acting pay for distribution which they
did nut make. This lion been done
iu Omaha for yuaru and years.
When anybody comes to THE BKE
to circulate dodgers through the paper
wo toll them exactly what wo circulate
and they got only the dodgers they
pay for and are delivered for them
just as we agree ,
Talk about the circulation of these
'papers , THE Bcc has seventeen car
riora in the city of Omaha alone , am
cloven cf riors in Council Blufiswhil
the Republican has only five carrier
in Omaha and the Herald six carriers
and neither of them circulate by carrier
rior or otherwise in Council Bluffs.
The nowspapar presses of THE BEI
are capable of turning out as man ;
papers ! in ono hour as the presses o
The Republican will turn out in hal
ft day , and the presses of THK BitEar
taxed to their utmost capacity nigh
and day.
The chanro is also made that Tit ;
WEEKLY BEE must carry many thou
sand delinquents , because promiun
receipts wcro only issued to 14 ,
OOOTsubscribers who prepaid for tin
year 1882. Perhaps The Republics
is not nwaro that thousands of ou
patrons only prepay for three to si :
months , Ono thing wo assert , am
that is , that wo arc not mailing i
single paper now to subscribers tba
arc not prepaid for eomo period.
The Republican hints that ou ;
daily docn not circulate as hcavil ]
to bona fide subscribers as wi
have represented ; that thouaandi
of sample copies have bcoi
mailed out for months nm
clogginp up the different postoftlces.

The debt of the United States was
reduced during the month of April
> y $14,415,823.74 in round num-
tors , fourteen and n half millions of
dollars. During the ten months
which have gone by since the opening
of the fiscal the total reduction of the
debt has boon § 128,748,214. If the
average reduction for these ton
months be kept up for the two remain-
ng months of the year , the total reduc-
ion will amount to about$155,000,000 ,
and if the debt is reduced as much
during the next two months as it was
during the last two , the total rcduc-
ion will bo over § 100,000,000. While
nany unthinking men miiy regard
hia rapid reduction of the national
lobt as a national blessing , these who
vill reflect upon all the bearings of
hia policy will regard it aa a grave
and dangerous blunder.
The national debt ia in the main
represented by bonds that draw less
ban four per cent. , and it ia not
ikely that the rate of interest can bo
urther reduced by a material reduc-
ion of the debt. The people of the
Jnitod States can afford to pay four
per cent , a year on the national
debt a good deal bettor than they can
afford to bo taxed to redeem tha
lobt. They can make much bettor
use of ttrnt money than pay off a debt
hat only draws four per cent interest.
It may have been wise to reduce the
National dobb to its present proper-
ion for the sake of improving the
national credit , and refunding the high
nteroat bonds for low interest bonda
but it must bo remembered that this
ffort well nigh wrecked the country
luring the depressing period from
873 to 1870. It is unjust and un-
vise to compel the present generation
o pay off the national war debt
ivhon it still groans under
tie Durden of state , county
nd municipal debts incurred
uring and einco the war. These
ocalj dobta bear a much higher
ntoreat rate and should bo wiped out
rst. These who regard the cancollo-
1011 of our national debt aa a proof of
rospority , labor under a delusion , It
imply affords proof that the country

rcssiro taxation , That any people is

ia much as possible ia not only a pro-
onition to bo denied , but la a propo-
Ition which cannot seriously bo

ationul taxation. What tense is
lore in continuing this heavy burden
icroly to satisfy the vanity of each

o the heavy reduction of the national

have no common sympathy or interest
identical with these of the majority o
republicans in the senate. Wo nn
protectionists for the benefit of Am
urican labor as well as American cap
ital. They are prohibitionists for thi
exclusive benefit of capital and mon
ppoly. Wo have a profound intores
in maintaining the double monetary
standard of gold nnd silver. They , it
league with banking capital , dosin
the domonotization of silver , which ii

organize to antagonize them on theai
measures with all the energy thul
they have evinced against us in out
demand for the exclusion of Chinost
cheap labor. That is to say , lot ui
nominate and elect to congress none
but republicans pledged to oui
views and interests. At the
meeting of the next congress the
Pacific states , with Colorado , a state
in sympathy with us , will count fif
teen votes in the houso. As the pros
pect now looks , these fifteen votea
may hold the balance of power in that
body. A revision of the tariff and
legislation relating to the currency
and the banks will bo the chief busi
ness in that congress. The banks in
this country constitute a monopoly al
most as dangerous to the people as the
railway corporations. And with ref
erence to tariff revision , the New
Englanders are as substantially pro
hibitionists as they have shown them
selves the friends of Chinese cheap
labor and the onemics of the workingmen -
men of America. They tavor any tar
iff that takes money out of the pook-
ets of the consumers to enrich the
capitalists engaged in manufactures.
In this they are identical with the
Pennsylvanians and Ohioans , who
have also antagonized us on the Chi
nese question. It will be in the power
of the Pacific states in the next con
gress _ to draw a sharp sword on those
grasping enemies of the common people
ple , and wo shall merit all the perse
cution they have shown an eagerness
to give us if wo fail to use our advan

A cloao analysis of the proceeding }
of the senate on the two Chinese bills
demonstrates that the opposition came
frora _ the railway corporations , the
banking monopolists , the tariff pro
tectionists aud the manufacturing in
terests of Now England , Pennsylvania ,
Ohio and other states. All monopo
lies are the natural enemies of indo-
jvondcnco m the laboring class the
natural friends of cheap and servile
labor. It is good and wise policy for
us of the Pacific States , who are de
manding the exclusion of the myriads
of Chinese threatening us with invoV
hion , to treat this eastern combination
as enemies , and to strike back at
them wherever it is possible to deliver
a blow without injury to ourselves.
The state can do some good by enforcing -
forcing its power of taxation to the
full extent of the constitution against
the railway corporations and by in
structing ita senators and requesting
its representatives to urge an extension
sion of the Anderson-Plumb bill for
the survey and segregation of all the
land granted to the railways to thia
