The public is more interested in tho lively fight going on between the Iowa railroads and the Union Pacific, Council Bluffs and Omaha, than at first sight appears. If Council Bluffs is held to be the terminus of the U. P. road, then freights and passengers will bo transferred on the Iowa sido, the Union Pacific trains starting from Council Bluffs instead of Omaha. If Omaha is to be the terminus then trains on the U. P. will run to and from Omaha, and tho fivo Iowa roads and all freight and passengers will bo compelled to pay toll to the " Bridge Company " - a ring within the ring which manages the U. P. This is only a littlo itom of 50 cents to every passenger going over tho bridge eithor way; $10 for every car load of freight; 50 cents per hundred for smaller lots ; and 50 cents a package, these being tho establishod rates of the "lessees" of the bridge. This is an outrago upon tho traveling-aTid business public, and now that the new President of ; the U. P. road has ordered up tho "passes of all doad-heads," it is to bo hoped that independent Congressmen enough can be found to bring tho monopolists to terms. Let tho Union Pacific road doliver and take its passengers and freight at the Iowa fáde of tho bridge, or let tho IoVa roads fcftvo freo uso of tho bridge. The bridge - as well a tí U. road - wasbuilt by the people's money and ought not to bo an instrument of highway robIcry.
