Throttling Improvement Kntrrprlnc. OMAHA. Jan. ai.To tho Editor of The Ile. This is an opportune time for the citizens of Nebraska to jw that provi sions are made in our laws that will bring iiue.rnai Impi ovementa In tho shape of ulectrio railways to our state and nut Us ou an equality with othot state in cheap. irequent and rapid transportation. Our laws will not permit thla class of Internal Improvements and our money 1m now going to buy cheap Canadian lands where the Investor has a chanco to take ad vantage of tho Increased valuation. It Is a known fact that the interstate and state railway commission came into existence on account of the ' grasping methods and high flnanco of our present railroad systems and the Irresponsible promoters endeavoring to float large stock issues to construct steam as well as electric railways, whero 40 xa- rent of tho money raised was used for advertis ing, 40 per cent for salaries and com missions and only 20 per cant actually wont Into tho construction. This class of finance and construction, should be stopped, but the commissioners of this state havo drawn the lines so tight that all legitimate and honest Internal im provements are throttled by declaring that 6 per cent Interest Is aJl publlo serv ice corporations should Ui entitled to earn on their physical valuation, the com missioners to determine tbe valuation. It docs look to an outside observer that the state railway commlcwioners aro work ing In thu Interest of our now present railroad systema tnsterd of assisting In getting Internal improvements that will benefit tho local und 'short haul traffic. as the proaent rajlroiid sytems arc devot ing their best talent and energies for tho long haul and through traffic to the det riment of the local and short haul. Instead of tho mo (bod now adopted and being enforced by the commissioners they should auhorliw a stock issue equal to the bond Issue, the bond Issue to be deter mined by the actual cost of construction, including tho commissions, discounts and .contractors' profits, . For further protection of the purchasers a clause should be Incorporated In the trust doed that a certain percent of the earnings shall be set astdo each year for maintenance and at the expiration of the first ten yeurs another percentage shall be set ankle to rettro the bonds at the end of tho term of years the bonds are to run, before any dividends can be declared on the common stock. It tho promoters of a system of rail roads would start out on the'so linen and carry It through successfully no reasoti ablo man should begrudge tho promoter the right to hold and keep his stock aa fully paid and entitled to any dividend accruing. He hns certainly earned It and tho community where located haa had full benefit for the Increased facilities he has enjoyed. GEORGE L. CAM PEN. Wooler SnrnU am n Farmer. SILVER. CREBIC, Neb., Jan. 19. To tho Editor of The Bee: While lawyers. doctors, merchants, bankers and tho men of scores of other professions and call ings, ore organized for their own pro tection. It Is a well known fact often commented on, that the farmers are not j organized and have at hand no means j or acting togetner, eitner orransivciy or defensively. It Is true that there are Various organizations among them, aoine twenty of them will meet In Lincoln this week, but not one of them, or all of them together, can speak authoritatively for the great -mass of the faimers of Ne braska. The farmers are more numerous than all these .other classes of people, they are the Folld foundation on which all the Institutions and Industries of tho state rest; paraphrasing a saying attri buted to Louis Napoleon. "They are the state." And yet they are exploited and preyed on: preached to and doctored; boosted and boomed, and even reviled imd abused as a lot of addlr-pated chumps who do not know enough to throw uirt in a muonoie. Usually the farmer takes It all meckty like a lutub going to the slaughter, and answers back not a word. But there Is a limit to human endurance, and If our legislature now tn session docs not sit down on a lot of Ill-advised schemes for puu,nK .,nrB , " j ,.,.!. ,h nlrenriv nver.hlirilened farm. 'ers, something Is going to happen. While I I hold no commission to spenk for the farmers, having with my own hands tilled ' Nebraska soil for more than forty years, J I think I come pretty near to knowing what they want and what they do not want. They do not want to bo taxed lu the sum of fl40,000 or In any other sum to buy Mr. C(emmon's school at Freriiont. they do not want to be taxed In the sum of fft00,00i) or In any ottver sum, for a building for the historical society; they do not want to be taxed In the sum of 13,000.000, or In any other turn, for the removal of the State university, and, above All, they do not vant the legis lature to make any law fcr a state high way commission and a scheme of state road building which would eventually coat us untold millions, and be a pseless burden on the farmers forever. In my own behalf, and In the behalf the farmers, nine cart of ten of whom know would agree with ine in ad I have said, 1 pppcs! to tie legislature. ami partlcHlrly to the farmer members, for protection. We wish yotl tO provide well for the legitimate oxwns of the state government, for the wards of the state, and for the education et the chtl- Itmi Of the state by making uur shwIs twltcr Instead of mnklHg more of them. tf farmern would write their members ! of the leclalftture aa to what thev want. ! and what they do not want.
