TUB people of Nebraska demand at

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

Ohio floods have destroyed , at last

adds a now disturbing and depressing
element to trado.
The grain and provision markets

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
TUB lobbies at Washington ar
doing more work just at preten
than the two house * of oongrew.
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

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

pen the actual oaplUl invested and
lie legitimate operatlngexponses are

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-
