From tho Omaha Jlejiiillican we
Iarn t!i;it the juf?i!jh of S:me Gov
trutnem i being fully c'iscu sed by t!:e
members of both h'-u-: es of die I.'.-girla-ture.
It may be that tome pat tii sect
lhre by the people t renmcnl iLem
lire aii.xiuus to immortalize themselves ;
in framing a Constitution, and it is
mora than probable, from what we learn
from our friends at Omaha, that the
fiercest advocates of tha measure have
visions of tenaturships and sich before
them; but we know positively that this
county will cast a sweeping majority
arjaiiiit their action if a Constitution is
framed and submitted to them. While
our citizens have scarcely forgotten the
unanimity the vote against State
organization a li tis over a year ago, it
looks very silly for gentlemen nho were
tout to the legislature by them, since
then, to aisume the right of acting on
n q-ieMion totally foreign to the purpose
for which they were tlected. Should
the Legislature commit itself on this
jriestioa, we predict a rebuke from the
people that will warn them against ever
allowing themselves to be bamboozled
ly certain political trickle rs in the fu
ture. As the friends cf State Government
we would like to tee our representa
tives petition Congress for an "enabling
act," and we would have the memorial
ask for such grants as would render
our availing ourselves thereof incum
bent. We do not countenance the in
decent and undignified hate with
which certain panics have been trying
to force this question before the people.
The course pursued is better calculated
to kill the movement than advance its
success. If the people think the time
is approaching or has arrived when they
thould relieve the General Government
and assume the responsibilities of the
government of Nebraska, let us first
procure a liberal "enabling act" from
Congress, and let a convention, to frame
a constitution, be called by the people,
the expenses of which shall be borne
by the General Government, and then,
wo ran have a convocation of gentle
men, seat by the people to act for jhern
in this tu'jasure, who will be fully in
structed in the views their respective
constituents hold in the question at is
sue. To do otherwise i, in our opin
ion, to betray the best interests of the
people, by taking advantage of the po
tition hold by earh member of the Leg
islature, and will certainly conduce to
the defeat of the measure. Our opin
ion on the propriety of organizing a
State has already been expressed, and
in udditijn to the arguments already
used, we think, in view of the uncer
tainty of "gocd times" continuing, ind
the strong probability that exists at pres
ent of a financial cruis approaching,
which will render money exceedingly
scarce, it i3 all important that we acl
discreetly and net rush ourselves itto
difficulties that will burden the people
with taxation and State debts.vhich will,
for a long time in the future, cramp
their efforts at individual prosperity.
CI TV TAXES.
It has been suggested to us ly a
prominent citizen of this city, and an
extensive property holder, that our of
fices of city assessor and city treasurer
should be abolished. We are inclined
to favor the plan, and believe it would
work to the advantage of property
holders as well as the city government.
Let the city council make the levy for
city taxes acd place it in th hands of
the county clerk, who would incorporate
it in the tax list on the same basis as
the school fund, or oilier specific tax.
This would save the city a heavy ex
expense, and would prevent an im
mense amount of litigation. Under the
present mode, one person claims prop
erty by virtue of having paid the county
tax, and another ctie ilaims it by virtue
cf having paid the city tax. If the en
tire tax was collected by one individual,
there would be none of this trouble.
Many persons pay up their county tax
and do not seem to remember thai a
city tax is to be paid; when, if tht;
whole amount was collected by the
County Treasurer they would at once
be reminded of it. Should our citizens
favor this suggestion, it would be well
to take immediate steps to accomplish
the change. Let us have the views cf
some of our principal men upon it. .
tZ& No less than S00 persons have
applied for a share ia the rewards of
fered for the capture of the assassina
A COALITION OF IM'CISESTS.
We have endeavored, so far, to labor i
for the benefit cf the entire Territory,
notwithstanding other points and other
papers have done all that was possible
for them to do to crush out the spark of
this place, because they feared it would
some day become a consuming flame
and devour them. We have endeavor
ed to show and think we have clearly
demonstrated i: that the location of
the main trunk of the Pacific Railroad
on the 'Republican, running thru' Col
orad , was of vast importance to Ne
braska" as a whole. Uut when Omaha
and Nebraska City see that this loca
tion would in some way work to the in
terests of rhttsmouth, they immediate
ly join issue, after having fought each
other ever since they were first settled,
in order that they may defeat the fair
prospects of our city. Nebraska City,
at least should be careful how she takes
a stand that is calculated to work an in
jury to any portion of the South Platte
country, or she may find that there is
a power in the land that can counter
balance any effort she can make, and
that other portions of the Territory, be
sides Omaha and Nebraska City, can
form a coalition. We make the follow
ing extract from an able article on this
subject in the Brownville Advertiser of
the ISth inst. :
This is a vital matter to Brownville
and to this Land District. Omaha has
already a road West; l'lattsmouth has
a road terminating there from the Last,
the most feasible, best and cheapest
route west, ensuring her, beyond doutt.
a connecting road up the Platte Valley,
l'lattsmouth is about twenty miles below
Omaha. Now, Nebraska City only
about thirty miles below l'lattsmouth
i3 trying for a grant for a road west.
Ajax says "from Gov. Saunders down
to the smallest toad in the puddle," at
Omaha, all are in favor of such a grant
to Nebraska City. If this be so, it is
to Hank l'lattsmouth, and will if sue
cessful flank this Land District most
completely. Congress will not make
grants for railroads to every twenty
five miles of river front in this Terri
tory. Tho route from Piattsmouth is
the most natural from the Missouri riv
er, which must be conceded in time,
and a road built. Heretofore Nebraska
City and Omaha have always been at
"dagger's points,"' and if this coalition
is brought about, we warn Omaha that
she is stabbing her best friend, the Ne
maha Laud District. And if legislation
be asked for to further such a selfish
coalition of interests, the Representa
tives from this District should join hands
with Piattsmouth and see her through.
THE "SIESOL'StCES EXHAUST
ED." There was a party, a few years ago,
that clamored loudly for "exhausting all
the resources of statesmanship." The
tail end of that party has got control of
the Nebraska Legislature, and we
judge that the "resources" are about
"exhausted." We find the following
among the Legislative proceedings on
the lS.h inst,, published in the Omaha
Mr. Maxon, Chairman of the Com
mittee (of the democratic members)
made a report upon hasty Legislation,
which had been referred to the said
Committee; said repoitconsisting of the
leading editorial from the People's Press
of January th, against Gen. Heath's
claim to a sent in the Legislature.
Pending a motion to adopt the report,
the House adjourned.
This is evidently intended as a good
joke on tho Press, and would take first
rate in a bar-room; but when perpetra
ted by a "statesman," and published to
the world as a part of the Legislative
proceedings, it looks like their "resourc
es" were pretty nearly "exhausted."
Yes; by all means, let us have a geo
logical survey cf the Territory; or at
ieast such portions of it as are believed
to contain valuable deposits. Not such
an one as Sol Miller speaks of, "a mnn
riding about the country in a carriage,
telling every farmer that there is 'iie
on his land," but one that will do us
some good. We believe that a few
thousands spent in this way would be
of more benefit to the country than a
State government. What do the people
The report cf the Territorial Audi
tor shows that Cass county returns the
valuation of entered lands, capital in
vested in merchandise, manufactures,
moneys and credits, value of stock and
vehicles, at SI ,512,706; while Douglas
county, in which is the city of Omaha,
returns on the same property the amount
of 81,603.5-52; and Otoe county, in
which is Nebraska city, 81,743, 169.
This exhibit shows Cass to have only
SlS0,li6 less property ihan Djugl is,
and S230.7G3 less than Otoe. When
we take into consideration the defer
ence between the amounts invested in
merchandise in riattsmouth and the
cities of Omaha and Nebraska City, it
will be readily sen that Cass is by far
the wealthiest agricultural county of the
three. The country surrounding ouf
city is far in advance of the town,
which we look upon as of - the greatest
importance, especially in the west;
while Omaha and Nebraska City, must,
of necessity, from this showing, be in
advance of the country in which they
are located. . We deem it of vital im
portance to the prosperity cf a western
town that the coun'ry should be at least
equally advanced with u. if not a little
ahead. What would b- the result
should the transient trade and "outside'
pressure be removed from our neigh
bors (which we h"pe may tu v'er be the
case). Have they any home resources
that would warrant even a continuance
of their present dimensions and import
ance? On the other hand, while Plaits
mouth does neaily or qwi'e as much
freighting as either Omaha or Nebras
ka City, she has not reached that "gid
dy height" from which she would be
liable to be precipitated by any sudden
change in her commercial prospects for
the future. If our neighbors would
look more to developing atid settling up
the country around them' do more for
the farmer and let the tow n rest a lr.tle
while they might soon occupy the en
viable position that l'lattsmouth does.
But it is said that gamesters become so
infatuated that they cannot quit their
play, even after "luck' has turned
against them; and we suppose the same
rule holds good with men who have
"New Chicago" on the brain. It would
not be a matter of surprise to u, how
ever, to see some of the towns in Ne
braska begin to "double up" pretty soon
to try to kep even with Piattsmouth.
THE IACllTlc"lSA ILIiOAW.
The Press, of Nebraska City, in its
issue of the 19:h inst., still adheres to
its position that the location of the main
trunk of this road in the valley of the
Republican would be injurious to the
interests of Nebraska. The editor
forgets just this little iiiatter: The roads,
or branches, on the north and south,
are part of an equilateral'triangle, with
the Missouri for a base; and necessarily,
any line which would bisect this triin
gle from its apex to its base, would be
shorter than the subtending lines and
"that's what's the matter."
JSF" The editors of the Richmond
Examiner and Enquirer recently met

publican prisoners condemned at Mafia

Maximillian's deeree for the execution
of all those found in arms against his

that it was a matter in which the Amer

the execution of the decree must be

that Mejia is to be superceded at Mat
