LEGISLATION AT LINCOLN.
HtuM Oi:U 8rj-.UAI. C.OHKtei'OMKNT.
Lincoln, Neb., Jan. t, '&.
EiutouJHekald: Yesterday the senate
completed its organazation and now is
ready for business. The day's session was
diort. Polk, of Cass county, receives
chairmanship of the committee on privil
eges and elections, and in addition is a
member of the committees on judiciary,
railroads, university, mines and minerals,
and militia. Fifteen bills have been
introduced in the senate to date, some
trifling and others of importance. The
names of those appointed by the senate
for various positions were read in the
morning; we suppose the Omaha J!ce
and its feeble imitator, the Dtiity ('nil,
of Lincoln, will jump on the senate with
both feet on the score of extravagance.
Despite the assertions of those who de
light to edify their readers with sharp
and pungent articles about treasury raids,
etc., we can assure the taxpayers of Cass
county, that the present legislature has
shown a disposition to, and undoubtedly
will, run this session on as economical a
basis as can well be done.
Tli.; house has not announced its com
mittees and their members as yet,
ilthough they arc ready for business, us
a list of over fifty bills to date would
indicate. A cheerful fire burning in two
open grates gives the house a cozy, invit
ing appearance, but for some reason, the
senate is not as fortunate.
The theory of individuals, pencil and
petition in hand, requesting the signature
of legislators to their modest request for
a good government appointment seems,
is yet, unabated. They can be seen in
every corridor, and during recess on the
floor of the house. Many will return
nc::;e in a few days, while few will be
appointed. Wolfenbarger, of the Keic

Wiiber F. Bryant has mailed to each
member of the legislature a statement of
the case in respect to the birth, parent
age, life, arrest, conviction and execution
of Louis Riel by the government author
ities of Canada. Bryant seeks action on
the p irt of the U. S. government, claim
ing that Kiel was an American citizen, as
Kiel did when tried, having been natur
alized by a Montana court in 1880, and
attempts to call the attention of congress
to this matter through the state legisla
ture. Whatever may be the merits of
this case, Bryant is certainly indefatiga
ble in his efforts to attain what he
believes to be justice for a murdered
American citizen. Tkansiknt.

The prospects for a boom for this city
in the spring and coming summer are
videneed more each day as the intentions
l several of our citizens, and different
companies are made known.
The B. & M. Company has secured land
:Yjm the city for the purpose of extend
ing its yards, laying new track, etc. With
these improvements,rumor has it,that it is
whispered among the officials of the road,
a new depot will spring up. This would
certainly improve the appearance of our
Main street much, aud be a marked
improvement in the way of convenience.
Grading has been commenced today in
the yards, aud this is a good indication
that the rumor i not entirely groundless,
A new city hall, which will no doubt be
built in the spring, would also be a great
decoration to the city and an emblem of
industry. This is more thsn a rumor, as
many citizens, and several of the coun
cilors are pushing the enterprise, and the
result will surely be favorable.
The improvements just completed: A
new sewer system, Main street paved, and
new streets opened up, are also a break
ing of the ice for the reception and
encouragement of industry. With this
start a boom should not be slow.
The contractors inform us that the city
will witness more building operations the
coming summer than eyer before. A
large number of contracts have already
been let. and the present indications bear
out the statement that a good number
more will be made in the near future.
The past year, although a very creditable
one for Plattsmouth, will be eclipsed by
the present one. Push it to a boom!
