A Parliament for Ireland . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 26 December 1885
A Parliament for Ireland . It is a stormy time in English politics —; perhaps we should say squally . Nothing is settled . The Tories never favored any concessions to the Irish . Some had thought that , inasmuch as they had profited by a quasi alliance with them in the late elections , they would turn toward them a warmer side . Not so . The cabinet , in a recent meeting , not only refused to have anything to dowithParnellites , but were more determined than ever in their expressions against giving Ireland legislative independence . They even developed a scheme , if we may credit the cable reports , for the extinction of local self-governments in Scotland , Wales and England . This looks like taking up the gauntlet that Gladstone has just cast at their feet . The sturdy old statesman is reported to have written , as Privy Councilor , to the Queen , on the subject of a Parliament for Ireland . The London News say # : Perhaps the best beginning would be to leave the Imperial Parliamen...
Taxing Railroad Lands . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 26 December 1885
Taxing Railroad Lands . The telegraph announces that there has been some agitation in Northern Dakota on this subject . Some of the village and other local authorities cannot quite see why the Northern Pacific Railway Company should not bear its tall share of the taxes . As soon as a homesteader owns his farm he must help pay the expenses of the county and State or Territory . If a citizen owns a village lot he is taxed , whether a resident or not . It seems that the Northern Pacific , like some other railway companies , has managed to avoid payment of local taxes . Precisely how this has been done does not appear . It might have been by refusing to take out their patent from the Government and so permitting the title to remain in the United States . This course might have some justification until the country begins to be settled up , and improvements , like roads , countybuildings and the machinery of local government , begin to be needed . As soon as the appliances of civil societ...
The Cattlemen and Education . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 26 December 1885
The Cattlemen and Education . Gov . Ireland , of Texas , has issued a proclamation declaring that the whole power of the State will be employed to punish those persons who have been cutting fences in Jackson , Burnett and other counties . The governor offers a reward of $ 100 for the arrest and conviction of any one found cutting or injuring the feyeing of another ; and $ 50 for the ar- * es J a ** d punishment to the full extent of tho law , of any one unlawfully inclosing or using school , university or asylum lands . It is not to be supposed that our friends of the mammoth cattle companies have been sending any of their Texas steers to school or to the university , or even committing the crazy ones to an asylum . It is merely the appropriation to the use of grazing , of lands set apart by the government in aid of schools . The proceeds from the sale of these lands were intended to constitute a fund for the support of State asylums , institutions of learning and public schools . D...

Reforming or Overturning ? [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 26 December 1885
Reforming or Overturning ? The dissatisfaction with United States Land Commissioner Sparks seems to be not only widespread but based upon several different matters His unique ruling , as to the measurement of railway grants , is fully treated by a communication from Citizen on our first page . This , if sustained , not only deprives the railway companies of thousands of acres in our different western States and Territories , but in the clouding of titles and disarranging of boundaries long since es tablished , will work great detriment to the settlers . Should the Commissioner reply that the railway companies are bound to warrant and defend the titles they give , and that consequently the settler should seek redress from the company , still there remains the great inconveniences and even loss arising from a clouded title . And supposing the railway , companies , in general , should stand ready and . willing to make good all deficiencies without any expenses of litigation to the sett...

Accurate Tests in Contagions Diseases . [Newspaper Article] — Farm, Field, and Stockman — 26 December 1885
Accurate Tests in Contagions Diseases . Would it not be a good thing for the country at large , for the agricultural department at Washington to continue investigation in the direction of elucidating the extent , direction , and life of the virus of contagious diseases of animals . The information so far has been valuable in a scientific sense , but principally in the direction of microscopic work , as to forms , etc ., of life found in connection with disease . One question of importance would be whether these microscopic germs are the effect or the cause of a disease . So far it seems mere theory and unsettled . In England according to late action of the Royal Agricultural Society , reports on foot-and-mouth disease , although encouraging , gave nothing definite as to how the outbreaks had occurred , although inquiries have been going on there for ten years as to the transmission of disease by germs , Eminent men concurred with the generally expressed idea that it was necessary to...
