Ft is a mst notic-able fwt that Ne- i
br-ka City did believe in Liii'-oln from i
th- fir.-f. and ht lie-vitiir ai-tol arr l:t?!y.
It was Nebraska City nun who first aw ;
the ie-asibiiity of the removal of the ;
Cnr-iral and tlie l-uildin? uj of a prcat j
inland town f-.cuth of tlie l'iatte Hivcr.
If it tvos "Xeh-raka City nu n vrho j
tirst fa w the feasibility of the removal off
the eaj.ital," why did not her m.-w.-jiaj.crs j
have the j.luck to eome out in favor of i
the j.roj.'f t. Tlie inemlers of the I'C-i.-Iaf
ure that passed the li!l removintr the
i'aj ital have not forgotten tlio vreakne-s
of the i-i'irsal column of the Nebraska j
City yaicrs at that time, and that the j
Piatt .-mouth Hkraih was T1IK ONLY i
I'APKIi I NTH K.STAT!-: tliat -too, u j
in favor of the removal until nftir thr
bill hud ied. After the question had !
bt-en .settled, and the removal was alixed ;
f'a-.t. thr;t, and not till tin . i. did the papers !
of Nebraska City take position in favor !
of the removal at that time and under j
that IaTV, and the JiL of thr It-i1r,s will :
evidence the correctness of our ttatc- '
inent. We remember distinctly that i
Nebraska City r.vn caine to this city j
jntfjuwfJ; to assure us of their endorse- j
"merit t-f our cour;- on thi capital qties- '
tion, and at tlie same time deplored the
instability of the papers of their own ;
town in not liaving sufficient; in lepend-
cnee to come out in favor of the project. ;
It does not come with a very jrf-od crace !
from the l'rrxx to claim f t Nebraska ',
City all the credit lor building up Liu-
coin. The tnen who r as-ed tli'J bill felt I
the necessity of a united mi port, and :
have not fortrotten the treneral indigna- ;
tion that prevailed amon them at the
course of the pnpers of Nebra-ka City. ;
We know, full well, that many Nebraska j
City men t.-ok an active part in securing 1
the removal nf the capital, and had th-y
l.icen warmly seconded by the pre-.s of;
that city, as they should have, been, then 1
the peeple and palters of that city mieht !
lave had .mc prounds f ir boasting. j
Miller, of the Nebra-ka City 1 Vrsx,
made a personal assault upon us somy
time since, through the columns of his
paper, with :it the .-ILditc-t provo.-iition.
e sup.t- he reasoned like some
hthool boys we have seen that he was
very weighty and mu-t .-how his "mus
cle" by attacking whal he would e ill a
'-mall lxy." placing us in the catalogue
of '.mall hoy.," editorially. The small
boy has rather pot the "ui: sc hold" on
Jiiliy. and he now cies out that he will
' tell the schoii! liUTiu" if we don't let
h'ni alon Ilesays:
'"Tie.' f!:owiu'' specimen of the way
in which the I'lattsmouth Jli-. uhl snarls
ami snaps at every item in the Nebraska
City palters, concerning the progress of
the Midland l'atitie Railway, or the pro-Crc-s
df this section of the State we pive
t r the ben-ilt of tli't.-e of our citiz'n
who patronize that junrnal."
Ilcie he Iiisci ts an item wherein wc
Ji-ked him if he had any idea how much
iron it took to lay twelve miles of rail
road, and adds :
"Wo have a large number of friends
arid a- quaintcnanecs in l'lattsinouth who
we know do not share the feeling towards
Nebraska City manifested in the above,
and we thus prominently call the atten
tion of the llii'ill to the item, hoping
to secure fbr it in future a more just
representation of the people of I'latts
mouth. and a more gentlemanly conduct
of their neighltors."
Now, lilly, we know yon have "pist
'Mea l load," of friends in thi.s locality,
art I they mu.t know of ihe davs and
ri'ghts you have worried your h-ain to
assist I'lait.-moutli, but if any of tliem
can toil wh it you are ti ving to get thro"
you in the last paragraph above we would
like to hear them. We d hope you
will think better of it, and not have all
your friends withdraw their patronage
from the llt.it.!.t. Next time we enter
into a little sparring match with a news
paper we shall try and se'ect o.ie that

So many rumors have been afloat late

hive never male. o. City J'i.--.
df the Pi.ATrs.MorT; t IIk:ali had
made tli above statement, Miller would
have said at once that we were try ing to
''injure Nebraska City," and that we
did not have a proper regard for the
"great father" of the Yw because we
did not believe all the little anecdotes
published therein n regard to the "Mid
land and F. A. White, ll-.,." The
above proves the correctness of oar s
.-ertion, over which Miller gets m awful
'vrathy that he threatens us with his
"friends and acquaintances io Plait -mouth,"'
that it must Lnr. y Mr. White
wry niucli to be tliamp'wucd by men
who kn w nothing about building rail
roads, and who by making Mich reckless
statements as tho-e ref'ened to in the
above item of the IVc-, mu-t do Mr.
VLite, the railroad and the town a seri
ous injury. At the. ri-k of again having
Hill;, his "friends and acquaintances"
all "go for" u- we repeat the assertion
that .statements made at random without
a proper knowledge of what labor or
money it takes to build a railroad, are
not exaet'y the thing to 1 e Itclieved by
he public. We do not intend any injury
to Nebraska City by the a!ove i-tafe-

"La-t Piatt-inouth," the jKint where
the D. & It. J'. crossses the latter road.
Has new road is now in running order
the entire distance from Plattsmouth to
Uuriington. Ly the connection jilxive
named we are supplied with another
route to Chicago and the ca-t, and a line
which is lerhap as fhort as cither that

You will Gu l ihi a much more valua

completed from Omaha tin Ueilevueand
Laramer Mills to a connection with the
Ii. k M. on this side of the Platte.
Kailroa Is are powerful aids in the de
veiopmejit of a countrv and in the con
centration of capital. They hold a pre
ponderating iiiiluence over favorable lo
calities, milder ciiaiate. s-uperior .soil, di
rectness of route and slower thorough
fire. Without the aid of railroads,
liichardson, Nemaha, Pawnee, Johnson
andiage counties stood first and fore
most above all other l.tcalities in the
State. Urownville, when all towns were
dciiending upon their natural resources,
g ive promise of be -onmg the metropo
lis of the State. Omaha, sided by the
resources of the V. P. It. It., soon led
her by many thousands, Nebraska City
standing tremblingly second, as her pros
jxictive railroads were considered more or
less certain, and for a long time Urown
ville held the position of the third tO'.vn
in size and commercial importance.
Now, the 1. Si M. being completed to
the river, comes to the aid of Platts
mouth ; and wv reluctantly yield our
place to that growing city. Jirotrnril'e
We hope and believe our Ilrorvnville
fiicnds will soon get their arrangements
perfected for at least one line of road,
and then .she wiil loom up again. Noth
ing would give us greater pleasure than
to class Urownville among the railroad
towns of Nebraska.

him in the same Pu'ilman Palace ro Chi

That sounds a little better, Col. You

"several strings" to jour bow. and as
we are mainly dejiendant on the U. it

pretty closely, and when anyone shows

Tlie subject of the next census Lj one
of lively iutere.-L The plan proposed by
the Census Committee is far more com
rehcrisive a d iiorough than any one
heretofore adopted. An independent
bureau i contemplated, aud a preat
rnnpe of schedule, including critical in
qii'iic into the industries of the countrj,
a well as mot ciiiiplcte wicial statistics.
Tlie Committee think that the Census
tiikcr should not Udong to the Judicial
IVpartmeut of the (Joveniuient, as mar
shals do ; but that this business should
le done by those entirely unconnected
with the constabularj' of the country, so
that there wiil be no fear of assessments,
arrests, seizures, or any inquisitorial pro
ceeding. It is proposed to complete the
work in a short time, and to publi-li the
rejtort within one year after the returns
are in. A lilicral compensation in the
form of a salary or fter dien;, is ref m
njended without mileage or any sort of
" It will thus 13 seen that if Congress
adopt the recommendation of the Com
mittee, there will Ik? a radical change in
the method of taking the census. The
Department of the Interior was erected
by act of March 3d, Is4'., and the Sec
retary was given suien isory and appel
late tower, liefore ercercised by the Sec
retary of State, in regard to the acts of
Marshals, signing requisition on esti
mates, itc. lie was also to classify the
returns, and lay them before Congress.
The law under which tfi3 census of
1S.V) was taken, is still in force, and is
far more ample in its provisions than any
previous statute on that subject. A Su
lerintendent is provided for, itc.
As some of our readers may not be
familiar with the manner of arriving at
tlie number of Representatives due each
State, we will give it. For example, by
aet of May 231, liSoO. it is provided that
after March 3d. ls.3, the number of
members of the House shall be two hun
dred and thirty-three. Taking the ag
gregate population of the United States,
the Secretary of the Interior ''shall di
vide by the No. 233, and the product of
such division, rejecting any fraction of
an unit, if any such happen to remain,
shall be the ratio etr rule of apportion
ment of Representatives among the scve-
: ral states under such enumeration : and
; the said Secretary of the Department of
the lutenor shall then pntceed in the
same manner to ascertain the representa
I tive population of each State, and to di
vide the whole number of the represe nta
tive jtopulation of each State by. the ratio
already determined by him as alxtve di-
rectcd ; and the product of this Iat di
j vision shall le the number of representa
tives apportioned to such State under
the then last enumeration; provided,
that the lo-s in the numlterof members
caused by the fractions remaining in the
several States, on the division of the
jiopulati ui thereof, shall le compensated
for by assigning to so many States having
the large.-t fractions, one additional
niemlier each for its fraction, as may lie
rice-cssary to make the whole numler of
represent itives two hundred and thirtv
three." The general of apportionment must re
main, substantially, as it is. but the rej-re-eritative
population will be material'v
affected by tlie 14th amendment; also I
by the loth, should it be adopted. Con
gress, however i not hanijiered by any
specific nn-thod of assigning representa
tion, and has. in sev ral instance, given
a larger number of representatives than
wa- warranted by strict rule or any au
thentic showing of populat'on. This
discretion was exercised very lilterally in
the cases of California and Minnesota.
The provision of "the Constitution on
thi subject is in very general terms, and
Coiig'-css has frequently stepjted out of
the u-ual routine to do equity, notwith
standing census lcturn (if thought im
jicrfect) or other tech leal objection.
