II. R. No. 512 will be taken up in
the house this morning. "The bill
was introduced by Representative
Shryoek and authorizes the estab
lishment of an intermediate peni
tentiary at Louisville. The citizens
of that place have agreed to donate
a building and 1?S0 acres of land. A
committee of legislators, in con
junction with a committee of Platts
mouth citizens, visited the site and
will report favorably. The object in
view is to establish a place for
young criminals who are too old to
be sent to reform schools. State

Five hundred thousand dollars
has been appropriated for the im
mediate improvement of this new
fort which is situated just six miles
north of this citv. All of Fort Oma
ha will be removed to the new site,
which will be titled out as one of
the largest and best military head
quarters in the United States. Con
gressman Connell. after a talk with
the officials at Washington, sa3's
work will be begun in earnest on
the new buildings as soon as the
weather will permit, and tiiat he has
reason to believe $2,000,(XJ0 will be
expended on the new fort. Ife sa3s
that the plans being carried out for
the work which begins at once are
on the basis of a million dollar ap
propriation, so confidant is the gov
ernment that at least that amount
will be fi mil ly- given.
The building of this new military
camp so near i's where so many
men will be permanently- located,
and the expenditure of half a mill
ion dollars right at cur door this
summer means much for Platts
mouth. We will have a bridge
across the Platte river and hu mi
red s of mechanics will find employ
ment. Put the permanent feature
lies in the fact that our cit3' will fur
nish the nearest market and source
of supply for this large body of

The Platte River lo be HBrnesfcec by
fleorge W. Fairlield has hal in
the past two years much experience
in building canals along the bluff
of the North Platte river, having
projected and completed the first
irrigating canal of any size in this
state. Mr. Fairfield is therefore not
01113- :,n engineer 111 theory out in
actual practice. The niethod of
building those long and expensive
canals out in the western part of
the state where money is scarce has
always excited much curiosity; it is
done in this wise: a stock company
is organized and a little money put
in and work begun, when the canal
is bonded to eastern parties at a low
rate of interest to complete it. Fast
ern men who have had experience
in California and Utah ditches,
know their value, and are glad of
an opportunity to loan their money
on that kind of security. Now, if
an irrigation ditch .rXH) miles west
of us in the sand hills is a good
thing, what would be thcught of a
canal 01113- hfteen miles long here in
Cass count3 that would lurinsh a
water power sufficient to run scores
of large factories? Mr. Fairfield
sa3's the plan is not 01113- feasible
but that he is positive from a per
sonal knowledge of the county-and
the business, that the canal could
be made a great success with the
on il:ij. of but little nione3r 13' local
citizens. Mr. Fairlield will be down
next week and will meet with the
board of trade and talk over the de
tails of the business, when we ex
pect to be able to chronicle the for
mation of a compaii' that will push
the great water power to an early
If we had the canal completed the
IJ. & M. shops could irse our power
so cheaply, that the talk of dividing
the shop plant, or building else
where west of the river would never
be heard of again.
The new industries that it would
bring would employ thousands of
men and our cit3r wculd become a
Man' gentlemen of means are
reatl3" to go into this canal measure
and the outlook for its success at
this time is certainly flattering.
Boyd Files His Answer.
In the Thay er-Hoy-d contest case
the ansyver of James 10. Poy d was
filed y-esterda3"; and stripped of its
verbiag-e shows conclusively- that
James 10. P03XI yas not a citizen of
the I nited States when he was
elected governor on last November.
Uo3"d himself swears that he yvas
not a citizen on the Kith of last De
cember and thereupon took out the
necessary- papers and hwk the oath
of allegiance to this country before
ulge Dundy of the United States
court. Since the constitution re
quires that a man must be a citizen
lor tyvo years before he is eligible to
the office of governor, it looks very
much as if Mr. Ho3"d yvas trillim;
yvith the layvs yvhich he so recentK
took an oath to enforce and respect.
Immediate- after the filing of Mr.
Hovds ansyver, 1 havers attorneys
liled the folloyving demurrer, which
the court will hear argued tomor-
royv morning. Lvidently- the result
of the litigation is not far off:
Comes now the state of Nebraska
upon relation of John M. Thayer and
demurs to the ansyver of the defend
ant. James 10. Ho3'd,and forgrounds
of demurrer states:
First That said ansyver does not
state facts sufficient to constitute
a defense to the information herein.
Second That facts stated in said
ansyver are insufficient to justify-the
defendant in holdingand exercising
the office of governor of Nebraska.
Third The ansyver shoyvs upon
its face that the defendant, James 10.
Bo3'd. yvas an alien and ineligible to
the office of governor of Nebraska
in November, TSiX), at the time of his
pretended election, and that he un
lawfully invaded and usurped the
office of governor in Januarj-, 1S91,
before the filing of said information
and that he noy- holds the same 1111-layvfullj-
and without rights or au
thority of layv, as charged in said
in format ion.
Fourth The said ansyver admits
upon its face the fact- p.-ead'-d in
the information showing the elec
tion of relator, John M. Thayer, in
November, 1SSS, and his right to
hold said office bj- reason of the in-eligibilitj-
and the consequent non
election of defendant, for the term
of tyvo years from the first Tuesday
in Januarj-, 1S01, and until a success
or sliaii be electeei and qualified.
Fifth The exhibits filed b- dc-
lemlant with his said ansyver shoyv
him never to have been a citizen of
the L'nited States prior to December,
Wherefore the said relator prnj-s
judgment of the court upon the
pleadings that the said defendant
be ousted from said office of gov
ernor of Nebraska and that the said
relator be reinstated therein."
