Yesterday we published the proposed
Constitution in full, and now with our
readers we can examine it for the first
time as a whole, and make up our judg
ment upon the instrument. We still be
lieve, what we expressed as our opinion
last week, that notwithstanding there
are minor blemishes in some of its arti
cles, it is as a whole "an excellent body of
organic law and we are most earnestly in
favor of its adoption.
The Omaha Jhrull breaks ground
against it in its issue of this morning.
V e will, therefore, examine its objec
tions and fee whether there i.s any
foundation for terious opposition.
The Ilrrald says:
''First, in the constitution of the State
and county courts, making five District
Courts where three are only necessary.
The cost in direct taction for the pay
ment of increased f-a.aneas and espe
cially for the machinery of the county
courts, will be an onerous and unneces
sary addition to the public burdens."
To which we have to say that it is a
great mistake to claim that three ju
dicial districts is enough for the State,
even fo? the current year. Omaha has
her judge .tnd courts it is true, but al
most everv other county in tho Second
Judicial District are put to great incon
venience on account of the difficulty of
getting through litigation. We are of
the opinion that a Fourth District would
answer for the next year, perhaps for
the next two years, but no longer. It
would be absurd for the sake of saving
the paltry sum of ifA.tjoO, the cost of a
Fifth District for two years, to waste
$L'O,000 tha-, it has cost the State to
make this constitution. The ''ma
chincry of the county courts" is not an

like Probate Judges, will receive noth
ing but their foes for their salary. Their
jurisdiction is simply enlarged to cases
ol $ ijO, and uirsdemoanors, in which
the penalty is a fine of not over $ (, or
imprisonment not exceeding six months.
The Herald further says:
" S.-fi.ii.Kv flu- nrnc.-r onn fr rrf.l iit.on

excreted, of increasing the legislative

IegHature for a young sU'e cfloO.OOO
inhabiiints that will be almost equal in

It is begging the question to say that
the people should defeat the new consti
tution lest if it t adopted, they would
immediately comim a foc'isli net. It
the constitution did no adiuit ol the Iti
ture increase of the legisVvc ld. it
would be as short-sighted h.1! naiTW

limitations, is outgrown in less th in live
years lifter its adopt on The people will
not increase the number of their repre
sentatives if they do not think they need
them, and it is wise and expedient, not
to ti ; their hands in tho matter.
The Herald's last objection is as fol
" Chui'-h Taxation. This is the nature
of an embargo upon tho progress of
Christianity in this new land, which,
at-ido fiom the incalculable injury that
would be wrought try it directly upon
the religiou and moral interests of the
people, 'would result in great damage to
the material welfare a:sd progress of the
This alludes to the clause allowing
churches and the grounds upon which
they stand to be exempt from taxation
to tli? amount of $.,OiJ assessed valua
tion. Every one knows that a building
that would cost $!., 1 100 to i2ih)V0 is
rarely assessed at over $-3 Oikc So the
exemption is sufficiently ample.
There is probably ivA a church build
ing standing in Nel ra-ka that v.cuJ pay
any tax under this law, so that practi
cally the limitation amounts to nothing
at present. In two years af ter the ses
sion of the first legislature that nieet
this clause, if it is unjvopular, can be
stri.l:cn out by a vote of the people.
Why defeat the whole e: n-titution on
account of this triv al objection? An
objection that can be without expense

thirty months, with hardly any percep
The fact that the new constitution is
full of important chanzes, changes
now most imyerativelv needed by our
rapidly growing community, will out
weigh in the minds of tle poople these
trifling faults, if faults they are.

in our present imperfect and v:; etched
instrument, in less time than three years
and at a lecot than 5i:tl, H) for a con

that anv amendments or changes in the
new constitution can be mi.le in two
years without any expense, except in
publishing the proposed amendment m
the newspape-ts, and wo can. see how fur
lett-licd are those objections.
We guarantee that the Herald has
not publi-heil even a hint of its real ob
jections to the new organic law.
V Laboo, an old citizen of this city,
met with a serious accident on Wednes
day night. He was pissing up ?dain
street about midi iiht when a team driv
ing rapidly by persons unknown to us,
ran over him, breaking one of his legs in
two places, in a most fearful manner.
The parties driving the team did not
stop to see what injury they had inflict
ed. He was picked up and placed under
the cars of Dr. Hess. It is difficult to
estimate the extent of injuries, but at
thi- time his recovery cems doub.ful.

The editor of the Colorado Hera Id had
occasion to leave town for two or three
days, and he committed his paper, dur
ing his absence, to tho charge of a young
man, a novice in journalism, whom he
had just engaged as his assistant. Be
fore leaving, he instructed the ambitious
young editor not to permit any chance
to go unimproved to force the paper and
the very small size of the subscription
price upon the atteiitirn (,f the public.
"Always keep before your mind the fact
that the object of this paper is to ex-
f tend its circulation," he gaid ; "and
when you see a chance to insert a puff
of the Herald in any notice yoti make,
pile it on thick as you can. Keep the
people stirred up all tha time, you un
derstand, so that thoy will believe the
Herald is the greatest sheet in the
United States." The parting tear was
shed, and the editor left. The follow
ing night, while he was far away from
homo, his wife died very suddenly. Up
on the assistant devolved the duty of
announcing the sad intelligence to the
public. He did it as follows :
"uoNE, j;rr n-ot forgotten."

Bishop Clark, cf Rhode Maud, spenk

procure bfo-insuranee for the families of

his "death." It is all verv well to say
that that the Lord will provide ; but the

As the sea -on for grapes is rapidly ap
.proaehing, the following may be of im
portance to tho cultivators and coi.usm
ci s of this favorii"e fruit. While grapes
may be grown in such profusion and
with so little labor, it is a remaikabl"
fact that a suply for cvc.y hou: hold in
the country is not produced, not only in
tho regular season of them, but to last
till spring. There is no trouble irr keep
ing grapes through the winter as fresh
as when they w?re""'frst gathered. In
seasons when others fruit is scarce, no
greater luxury can be enjoyed than a
dish of fresh grapes in winter, In gath
ering grapes for keeping fresh, they
should be allowed to hang on tho vines
until fully ripe, and when gathered with
euro ta avoid bruising. Tho fairest

Tho rector of Wotton Barsett was the
happy hnsband of a wifv very la lvlike
and very lo7c!y: but very deaf. There
was a dinner party at the rector's ; the
ladies had arisen and gone to the draw
ing room. A Mr. Hare, ono of the gen
tlemen, followed them before his com
panions, and chancing to enter tho room
very quietly as a hare uny be suppos -d
to step a lady, behind whom ho stood
and whom ha had entertained during
dinner, observed to the rector's deaf and
ladylike wife (not knowing of course,
who was behind her): "What a very
agreeable man Mr. Hare is." The host
ess thought it was her loom and not her
company ir.t she had heard prai-ed, so
she answered ; "Yes ; and so warm and
comportablo a winter's night."
Tho Albany Journal says : "The sto
ry applied by Mr. Atkinson, twoor three

is equally applicable to the Democracy

yel ow bandana, and opening it, ex
claimed: 'There, do tf.uv look at that.'
'Well,' said the doctor, 'I see it.'
'What do you call that, doctor? 'I c:dl
it iron pyrites.' 'What, isn't that gold ?'
No, said th3 doctor, and putting some

n :y. 'Wal, said the poor fellow, with a
woe-bcfor-e look, 'there's a widder wo
man up in our town has a whole hill full
of that, and I've been and married her!"
The stuff" which tho Democracy offers
un 1 r the name of the "new departure'
is nothing but worthless pyrites and not
g ld at all. Tho country will beware
how it iutirri-js the widder VaUandbr
ham!"" Near Mt. Pleasant, in Ohio, men cm
be seen in the mowing field clad in shirts,
the latter like a woman's petticoat.
They defend tin's com nine as cool and
comfortable, and they hope to see the
day when every working man will wear
such clothes as be.-t con lueo io his eom
fort. They claim that the Jews and the
Deeip.es, and even Christ himself,
dressed in that fashion, and the idea
that it is ridiculous to dress woman fash
ion is -a modern idea. If women some
times wear. I troches", why should not
rr.cn some times wear the petticoat ?
Men have lights as well as women, and
we are glad to see that they are daring
to assert them.
