Can anybody bo induced to sacrifice himself on the altar of his country ? TUB two branches of the Kansas legislature are at a dead-lock on rail road legislation. It Is safe to say the railroad lobby holds the key. ILLINOIS , profiting by the example of Nebraska , Is agitating a high license law , whjlo Iowa is still agl- tatod over prohibition tha' does not prohibit. NINETY-TWO millions In precious metals wore produced during ' 1882 by the states and territories west of the Missouri. This Is an Increase of nearly $40COOOGO over 1870. REFOHM within the party , as Illus trated by the record of the republi can legislature , does not create n fav orable Impression of the ability of the grand old party to purify Itself. THE queen's spooh took lots than ton minutes In its delivery and occu pied about a half a column In the papers. There are some things In an elToto monarchy whioh republican presidents and governors might copy to the public advantage. TUB people of Nebraska demand at the hands of the legislature some re lief from the outrageous impositions to which they have for years boon sub jected by the railroads. The only re sponse the legislature has so far made to this demand Is the people bo d d , TDK lower honso of the loglslatnro la smply adding Intuit to Injury by creating a ooatly railroad cotdmission and placing no limit upon the extor tions of the railroad monopolies. The people of Nebraska can bettor afford to go without railroad legislation than to bo taxed $12COO for an ornamen tal commission. TUB river and harbor bill as report ed to the honso calls for an appropria tion of $ .037,000 , of which ? 1,500- 000 la for the Mississippi , and $350- 000 for the Missouri river , Seven millions Is lots objectionable than nineteen millions ; but of that amount more lhan ono half will bo wasted. The fact la that the nocossitlcB of the Miislwlsslppl are used to drag through a host of jobs. WHEN ho left Nebraska a faw weeks ago Sjnator Saunders told a reporter that ho waa hurrying back to vote for tariff reduction , Since his return to Washington the senator seems to have been roost busily engaged In vote shirking , while Senator Van Wyck represented his constituents by workIng - Ing and voting for substantial re ductions on all the articles of domestic necessity. THK end of the star route trials is near at hand and the conspirators have reached the end of their tothor. The confusion of Montford 0. Rordoll , ono of the ring contractors , and formerly private secretary to Stephen W. Dorsoy , forges the last link in the chain of evidence necessary to con viction and paves the way to a speedy conclusion of the case. Rcrdoll 1m pllcates all the guilty parties and es pecially Darsoy and Brady and tells In detail the steps by which this gl gantlo conspiracy against the treasury department was conducted. Added ; to the mass of noir evidence which the government had accumulated , Ror doll'a testimony makes a conclusive case on tbo part of the government and a prompt conviction , If the jury baa not been a second time fixed , may H' ' ' bo expected to follow. Bat no now i : testimony was needed to convlnco tbo public of the criminality of the gang of robbers now on trial in Washington. The evidence In the first trials was so overwhelming that nothing but bare faced corruptions ooold have sue coeded In defeating justice. Tbo pol ley of the defense from the start hu ehovra the conviction of their attor neya that the only hope for the escape of Doney's gang lay in taking advan Uge of wine technicality or In tiring the government out. With lewabli government ' counsel the attempt mlgh bare'Moeeeded. TO THE LEGISLAIUIIE. Do yon remember the issues upon which the late campaign was fought n Nebraska ? Have you forgotten the pledges made by party platforms and party loaders ? Are you so lost to all shame and decency that you oan within less than three mouths go back upon the sacred pledges you and your rlonds for you have made to redress ho monstrous exactions and abuses rom which your state has suffered at ho hands of grasping monopolies ? Will you dare to insult patient and orboarlng people who clamor for iroad by throwing them stones ? Yon ave pledged yonrnolvoa to rcdnco and quallro the bnrdenn of taxation , but o far you have piled np the agony by otlng thousands of dollars for bog.ia lalms and levying additional taxes for ublio buildings that are not needed. You pledged to relieve the people by ompolllng the full assessment of the roporty of railroad corporations , but yon have enacted no law that will do way with the present system of oxomp- ion. Above all things , yon wore ilodged to put an end to legalized high way robbery by laws to prohibit oxtor- ion by corporato.monopolics ; and you [ ht to know enough to know that you cannot prohibit extortion unless on limit the charges which railroads may exact from their patrons. Do on imagine yon can humbug the people plo with sham legislation that affords hem no relief ? Will yon dare to nact Into law that componnd of vll- alny and sham of shams prepared by ho packed railroad commlttoo of the lonso ? If yon do , woo bo unto every man who records his vote for it when 10 comes homo to face his constituents , far bettor that you adjourn without lasslng a single railroad bill than to tiompt such a monstrous Imposition. The people may submit to cxtor- lon two years longer , but they will os ant inch wicked mockery. There s not a redoomlng feature in that bill , ut on the contrary It adds ever $12 , * 00 to the burdoua of the taxpayers. But Mr. Peter Shelby , of the Union 'aolfio ' , tolls you blandly that his road 111 bo mined if yon pisi any bill that will limit passenger rates to three ents a milo and outs down the local rolght rates twenty per cent. Mr. Iholby Is simply trying a game of ilnff on you. Ho knows that the Tnion Pacific could dispense with all ho local trofiio In Nebraska and sur vive without cutting down dividends mo per cent. Why does Mr. Shelby oomo before you now with such palaver , and why id not ho and the managers of his oad furnish you the information you asked for through your investigating Jommlttoo. Why did they refuse to ell you about the extravagant salaries o officers , and why can't they reduce iiponsos by dismissing a lot of super numeraries who draw thousanda of dol- ara for political purposes ont of the arnings which are exacted in high oils from the people ? Will yon listen o the volco of monopoly henchmen while yon are deaf to the outcry of the oiling former and industrious mor- hantl Will yon booomo recreant to 'our trust nt the book of men who are rylng to uphold the syatomatlo rob- lories that impoverish the many while hey enrich the few ) TUB outlook for trade la no brighter , o say. the loajt , than It was n month go. The number of failures reported urlng the past two weeks issomowhat oss , but the aggregate more In amount nan for the preceding fortnight. Tows from the great trade centers con- Inucs depressing. Wholesale mor- hanta and jobbers report unusually ight orders for thta season , and a roat pressure for extended credits rom small buyers. Manufacturers , ro curtailing production to correspond with the loosened demands from wholo- alora and jobbers. The stock market weak , in sympathy with trado. Sven the dividend paying roada are lawn In the list , and the entire board hews a decline of from 10 to 20 per lent from last year's quotations. The Ohio floods have destroyed , at last reports , ever twenty millions' worth of property , and the damage o the railroads will mount nto the hundreds of thousands. This adds a now disturbing and depressing element to trado. The grain and provision markets ihowovldoncos of an upward tendency , although U is not yet strongly marked. Wheat and corn iu atoro is decreasing at Interior points , and unless argo blooks are soon thrown upon ho market the speculative demand mand for those commodities must enhance their prices. Savoral of the loading eastern papers maintain that the general holding back of their corn by the western farmers , will provo a loosing investment , when the intoresl paid for borrowed money Is deducted From the profits. This opinion la not , however , generally shared , by financial editors throughout the country. Meanwhile while congress by Its delay In reducing taxation , has added to the general an certainty. With high prices , low wages and thocsandi of men ont o employment , a policy of delay Is crlm inal. The first stop towards ronowe * prosperity will bo a cutting down o per cent the purchasing power of th taxation. TUB lobbies at Washington ar doing more work just at preten than the two house * of oongrew. CRANKS The financial cranks are not all dead yet. There is a paper in Ham llton county In our sin to that still howls about the terrible results of placing our currency on a coin basis. According to this paper the Interest bearing national debt on January 1st , 1883 , Is about , Mio aaino aa U was In 1865. On July 1st , 1865 , the na tional debl was $2,680,647,86074. On July 1st , 1866 , when the highest run go of the public debt was reached , it aggregated 2,773,230,17369. On February 1st , 1883 , the debt was $1,902,533,53-1. These amounts rep resent the debt as including legal tender currency , gold and silver cer tificates nnd the bonded in debtedness of the Pacific rail roads , which , with accumulated In- interest , amounts to $122,000,000. The interest bearing debt on the lot of Fobrnary waa about $1,370,000- 000 , the $500KXOCO ( ) additional bearing - ing no interest. In other words since 1866 wo have reduced the outstanding principal of our national debt $870- 702,80969 or nearly one-third. In the same tlmo wo have decreased our annual interest charge from $150,977,697 in 1865 to $75- 018,695 in 1881 and loss than $50,000,000 at this day , or a ron ductlon since 1865 to $100,000,000 a year In the annual interest charge on the dobt. Those figures show con clusively that the national debt has boon considerably rednoed , This rapid rate of roductlon was doubtjess bonefiolal in bringing th6 credit of the country to the highest standard of any nation on the globe. But now , when wo can borrow at three per cent. , it IB a suicidal policy to tax 10 people of this generation at the ate of $13,000,000 a month to pay ff the national debt when very farmer and every business man as to pay from seven to ton per cent , hich through the government they an borrow at three. Lot us illustrate , ho average debt of every manwoman nd child in this country is $30. Sup- ese that it was to be optional with very portion fn the United States pay his thirty dollars at once or ay 90 cents a year In taxes for inter- st. Wonld it not bo moro oconom- cal to pay the 90 conta a year than to ay the $30 , which , at 10 per cent , wonld earn for each person $3 ? It is imply stupid for ono-idoacrankBwho ( maglno that the country is going to adea because the national banks raw $14,000,000 a year on their ends , to insist that wo should pay ie entire debt now aud bankrupt the onntry by oppressive taxation in or- or that the banks should bo wiped ut. In other words , these cranks wonld ather have us pay thirty dollars for aoh man , woman and child in order , o wipe out the national debt than to ay twenty centa a year aa their ahare f the interest on the bonds which the national banks hold. This would be oonomy with a venganco. In the minds of these cranks the axes levied by the railroad monopolies ro nothing when compared with the 14,000,000 of Interest on national auk bonds hold to nocuro circulation. is a matter of fact iho groan earnings which represents the tax upon Amorl an Industry , of the railroads of this ountrynro about $1,000,000,000 per nnura , and the amount of tax upon lie people af tor deducting thu interest pen the actual oaplUl invested and lie legitimate operatlngexponses are vor $200,000,000 a year , which is ve times as much as we pay in inter st on the whole national debt , and moro than fourteen times aa much as s drawn by the national banks iu in- orcst on their bonds. This paper is decidedly opposed to ny policy that wonld take away from lie people the use of the money which is now at their disposal at 3 per ont , in the shape of a national debc , nd compel thorn to borrow by private oan at usurious rates of In- erest to pay off the dobt. Every man of common sense must sou hat the present high rate of taxation mpoaed by the national government or the purpose of rapidly paying off ho national debt , is the main cause oi ho hard times rind depression in bus ! ness' all ever the country , Right hero In Nebraska , and all through the west , farmers are paying a per cent month to hold their grain , and others are mortgaged head over heels , while ho secretary of the treasury complains hat the surplus at Washington is so mlky that new vaults must bo bull c < r Its storage , unless moro bonds oan > o redeemed.
