THE FIVE PER CENT. BILL.
Them is considerable discussio
throughout the state regarding tli
five per cont. bill which rccentl
passed the sonata , and under whet
provisions Nobraika willjbe entitled t
$120,009. The five per cent , agrot
mont is in the nature of a contract b (
twcon the government and the state
admitted since April 1802 , to pa
thoaostates five per cont.of the not prc
ceods of thosalo of public lands withl
other limits , on condition thai tli
lands sold should remain untaxcd fo
five years after sale. This provisio ;
was incorporated in the acts of ad
mission of all land states except Call
fornia. In a number of cases the pot
centago was fixed at but two or thro
per cont. The object of this agreement
mont is plain and reasonable. Undo
the pre-emption laws lands sold withii
the states by the government are entirely
tirely exempt from taxation. Th
atnto it given the duty of protoctinj
the lives and property of citizen
owning such lands , while it receives <
coivos in return no taxea to bi
used in maintaining the state and loca
governments. Five per cont. on $ l.2f

provision is equitable and just. It ii

which , under the bill now pending
loforo the house is appropriated for

The only reason that this class ol

The following ntory , told by a oat
tie-raiser of Oregon , would acorn un
worthy of belief were it not' tha
ranchmen ore ao often notorious ! ;
rooklcBs of life , and fond of courting
danger for the reputation to bo gained
A year or BO since there was i
"rodeo" out on Loat river , Laki
county. Ranchmen had gathered foi
a circuit of seventy miles to claim nn <
brand their young cattle , and when i
cordon of men had surrounded i
largo band , among which waa a Span
l h bull , a dispute arose about i
' mallet-head , " or calf that hac
escaped the spring branding ; the dis
cuaiion grow warm , none of the atocl
owners being able to act up a valic
claim or establish an undoubted title
At last , in a apirit of bravado , i
rancher proposed that whoever wouli
ride the bull without saddle or haltei
should bo the declared owner of th <
calf. ' There waa a yell of approval
but not a general atampede of volun
teers , for taurus waa in an ill humor
and hia foaming mouth and blood
ahot oyoa gave token that whpevei
rode him would have a ride aa wild ai
Mazoppa'a , and one that would nol
e id BO well.
Atlaata "vaquoro" named Friol
aecopted the challenge , and the wilt
bull waa immediately lassoed anc
held by a lariat around horn and foot ,
Dismounting hia horse , the vaquorc
fastened his long rowelled spurs se
curely , tied & handkerchief arount
hia head , approached the infuriatot
animal , and , grasping the tail in hie
liands , sprang lightly on , netting thi
spurs deeply iu hia flanks aa ho aottlec
securely in hia seat. The lariatn wore
Blackened ; the bull gave a roar ol
rage and terror and flung his head tc
the ground ; but the rider had hii
back to the horns and a firm grip on
the tail , and kept hia seat. Anothei
roar that shook the ground , a wild
plunge , and the now maddened bull
ihotout across the aago plain witl
lightning Bpood , hia pluoky rider
twisting the tail that to him waa c
ahoot-auchor , until the bellowing !
were lost in the distance.
* * For over a mile and a half the race
continued amid the excited cheers ol
.he vaquero'a comrades. Occasionally
.he bull gave a desperate plunge
through a heavy clump of sago in the
Vftiu attempt to rid himself of his tor-
montor.but the long rowela only clunp
uoro firmly to hia flanks. Sometimes
ho animal and the rider wore hidden
> y undulations in the ground , and bete
were oven made that Frick would be
thrown and gored ; but at lost the bull ,
Dxh&uated from sheer fright , fell , and
ho pluoky vaqioro , stopping lightly
9iT , returning to claim his prize , which
was unanimously awarded.
