tr-.ee separate articles were submitted

It was believed that it could do no par

Propositions have been submitted to

county asking aid in the construction of

Jicve but few words are needed. There
.?cms to be a Fettled conviction in the
minds of the people that this line of
road will not br con -trueted unless aid is
rendered at least not fur many years
and the only question is, would the peo
ple rather ;rivc the aid than do without
the road. We think they would, and
we look for a nearly unanimous vote in
favor of the bond in every precinct.
t" the road is not built there will be no
bonds issued, aril the company is re
quired, by the terms of the proposition,
to k'gally accept the proposition on or
before the first of January next, and to
complete the road to this city on or le
fore the -ith day of July, 1S73. We be
lieve that the people of the different
precincts fully undcr.-tand the subject,
and are competent to say what their
preference? arc. The idea that we will
get the road without aid is pretty thor
oughly exploded, and we think the peo
ple want the road. The way is open be
fore them to get it, and we believe they
will embrace ihf opportunity.
IIIN'T WAST IT.
The Omaha HepuUicnn has the brazen
effrontery to say that the people did not
want a new constitution, and sever asked
for it. Has that sheet forgotten the
election of only one year ago, when the
almost unanimous voice of the people
was heard in. favor- of a Convention?
We have not the vote of the State be
fore us, but the expression in favor of a
Convention was so unanimous that no
organized opposition was made to it, and
in many places there was not a tingle
vote against it. In Cass county the vote
stood almost four to one in favor of a
Convention, there being only about 2)0
-rotes against it ; and tho same fi'irc
hold good throughout the entire
State. Rrothcr Frost, are you not get
ting a little reckless in your de.-iro to do
feat the mw Con.-ditution ? The people
did ask for a new Constitution, and they
arc not "oing back cn it" now they
have a good one, notwithstanding the
efforts of the politicians who do not see
their own glorification in this new docu
ment, which was mado by the people for
tlio benefit of the people, aud at the re
quest of the people.
The Omaha Republican attempts to
areuc that the new constitution will bo
an expensive document, and in doing so
it exhibits the weakness of its position
by assuming things which are utterly at
variance with all facts. It attempts to
s-how how very expensive the legislature
will be, but finds that a fair estimate
docs not show such a frightful airay of
figures, hence it assumes that we will
have sessions of 1U0 days, and will have
two f(vmi;s a year- Uy this method of
calculation it endeavors to frighten the
people on the tax question. A paper
driven to thi expe.l er.t would do wtdl to
sdont the Omaha Jl-rnfd's plan and say
Th? Omaha RrpaUicnn does not want

arrangement. No.that begins to soun

good reason why a census taken by as
scs-ors, at a cost cf, say $"00, is not jus
as good as ono taken by persons appoint

lieve in ext ensive things, however.

The Plattsmouth Herald publishes
the abovo very readily ; but from certain
other known facts we are constrained to
think there is some misunderstanding in
regard to what Gin. Augur actually said
to the editor of the Herald.
Alout the 5th of Augut, Messrs.
Dougherty & Doom's party of surveyors
were driven off their work by Indians,
and at nncc applied to Gen. Emc-ry, at
r t. Mcl Iierson, tor an escort. Lreneral
Emery conferred with Gen. Augur, and
on the 7th of August he sent the fol

This looks very much as if Gen. Au

vicinity, and was fearful of a collision.
Before the messenger who came after the

our fa.-t we strolled over the city for an
hour, lookin, and listening, und post
ing ourselves on the fa:-t rising metropo
lis of the "Great West." It takes a
stranger but a few minutes to be forcibly
reminded of its va lidating streets, of
seventeen different grades and various
widths. Capital and man's ingenuity
have been severely taxed thus fir, and
it is but the beginning, to successfully
ccntenl with nature in rendering this
mountainous region commercially habit
able. The bridge is a masterly triumph
of ikill and a c-mplcto success, and the
main artery that carries the life-blood
of commerce into Kansas City.
The jobbing houses are groaning un
der new stocks of merchandise, which
shows that their faith ami their icarls
are in harmony. The city is full of
strangers and travelers, and everything
is lire, bustle and activity.

II. D. Hathaway,
Dear Sir: You would doubtless like
to hear more from Arrapahoe by this
time, as in a former letter, I gave you a
short account of our proceedings, what
we had accomplished, Sec. Business is
stid progressing as rapidly as cireumstan
ces will admit. Wc have one house
completed, and material cn the ground
for two more. Have a well dug it has
four feet of splendid water, tlear, cold,
and nearly as soft as rain water, has a
curb around it that would remind one of
the olden times, when the icttf-known,
but always beautiful words were com
posed, by one who must hr.ve known
how to appreciate nature and pure cold
water. Wc are making extensive pre
parations for the accommodation of rdl
tho.-e who will come up to the valley for
the purpose of making it their future
homes. We are putting up hay as fa..-t
as possible, intend to have fifteen or
twenty tons at least. Geo. Fairfield aud
party came in Friday afternoon, and they
are now surveying our town will soon
be done. Their escort of sol Jiers arrived
yesterday morning, in time to save them
an- imaginary evil which may befall
them hereafter. We hear occasionally,
through your paper, of the depredations
of the Indians. Their acts '.'f cruelty and
all sorts of horrors, and have been con
gratulating ourselves on being so fortu
nate as to leave eastern Nebraska before

zens of Plattsmouth to act in the matter,

There is no stranger thing, probably,
than the many quirks, twists and turns a
wily politician will make to argue in fa
vor of a position taken by him ; and our
honored and Hon. friend. G. W. Frost,
ad inten'ii editor of the Omaha Ripuf
lican, 'n a champion in this line. He is
out in an article endeavoring to make
votes against the new constitution, cn the
grounds of its expense ; and he
mourns wonderfully over the high sala
ries to Le paid State officials under it.
This all looks very strange in the light
of Mr. Frost's record upon these ques
tions cf money. The writer served two
sessions in the State Senate with Mr.
Frost, and he was then rioted for being
the only man in the Legislature who
never opposed an appropriation of mon
ey, and who ahanst advocated liieh sala
ries for officers, and constantly found
fault because of th low salaries paid
our State officials. In fact it ahr.es t be
came proverbial among the members
that Mr. Frost tould be counted in favor
of a bill if it had an appropriation in it.
We do not mention this fact at this time
in any spirit cf fault finding because cf
Ids tendencies in favor of liberial pay
ment for services icndered, but to show
the great inconsistency, and consequent
insincerity, of a man of such note coming
out noaud arguing against the new
constitution because the salaries have
been raised to a point something near
enough t j defray the actual expenses of
the officers. It, might do for soie other
man to argue in that strain; but far Mr,
Frost to do so ugh !

One of the reasons which Omaha men

is because corporation stock holders are

This is the section that men who de
sire to grind the poor man into the dust
would see stricken from our Constitu
tion. We look upon this section as one
of the glorious features of the document,
in keeping with the spirit which per
vades the entire iastrumeut. It is cal
culated to protect the poor man from op
pression by rascally sharpers, and that is
why we like it. Suppose, for instance,
that a half dozen men form a corpora
tion, or stock company, and each one of
them pays in ten per cent, of his stock
subscribed (which is all that is required
by law) and they commence business on
that capital. They get in debt to an
hundred different laborers and mechan
ics, and then find the speculation is not
going to pay them, and they fail. They
have only lost ten per cent, of their
nominal capital, and the day laborer
loses the remainder. Is it any more
than justice that they should be com
pelled to pay the laborer and mechanic,
at h a-t to the extent of the par value
(that cxpres.-ed upon its face) of the
stock subscribed? We are astonished
that any honest men should object to so
fair a provision as this in our organic law.
Who is there that will say that the la
borer tdmuid lose his toil, and that his
family should suffer for bread, in order

power lies in the county court, eonsist-

hundred thousand dollars ! The people
by townships voted two hundred thous
and dollars to the Lexington & Gulf It.
It., and one hundred thousand dollars to
the Osage Division of the Pacific U. It ,
making six hundred thousand dollars for
this county! The people here we and

Awoke about midnight with a chill !
No, no not an old fashoned ague chill,
but one old Boreas sent down this way.
To premise a little, the good people
here in II. lack one very essential
feature to a praiseworthy town, viz :
one or more good hotels. My hotel,
last uicht, eonsi-tcd of a one-and-a-half
story, twenty years old rambliug, wooden
structure a regular tumble-down, plas
tering half off, floor dancing a jig in
mitation of old ocean in moderate
swells. Literally and truthfully, my
bed was a wonderful contrivance a
straw tick of about enough material to
starve a sickly chap in one night, and
a show of feathers well, I'd pity the
poo.-e they came from at one picking!
Consequently the Cottonwood slats were
quite barren, and lay about as evenhy as
ii new western corduroy bridge. The
covering was a piece of bleached muslin
fir under sheet, no over sheet, but in
lieu of sheet, blanket and comfort, noth
ing but an old, plaid shawl ! So when
iwoke me 1 leaped out and
the Indians became troublesome. We
suppose that must be the center of diffi
culty, as the Indians in this vicinity are
all at peace yet, so far as we can learn.
We do not think there is any more
danger here than in any part of the
State, and wc invite all who wish
to come west, to come and look at this
part of Nebra.-ka. There is land enough
for all, and plenty of good chums. We
hope the good and noble will come and
secure them. If each one who comes
will bring only his virtues and bury ice
and folly, we can have society at once on
a grander, nobler foundation than is
usual in a new country And why not?
Surely a country so pure and free as this
ought to encourage everything noble and
true and discourage vice in all its forms.
This county is settling up ven fast.

Friend Hataaway : I promised
you a letter again after my visit to Chi
cago, and here it is. I left Chicago via
M. S. & Lake Shore 11, 11., in one of
the fine Palace Wagner cars which run
on that line, and my opinion is that they
are as much better and finer than Pull
man's as Pullman's is better than the
old style of sleepers. I found the Michi
gan Southern & Lake Shore It. B. one
id' the smoothest I ever rode over ; and
as we swept away over it at the rate of
forty miles per hour, not the least jar
was perceptible. After arriving at To
ledo I hunted up seme old friends and
acquaintances, who showed me around
that fine city. My recollections were as
I used to know it (in 1800), an immense
swamp or big mud hole, wjth a few
houses growing out. Now I find a mag
nificent city, with fine bu-iness houses
and palatial residences, well paved
streets and a thriving peopla. I went to
see "Nasby ;" I found him, and al
though not very funny to look at and
talk to he is an agreeable a d courteous
gentleman, who shows by his physique
that he knows how to live and enjoy the
good things of earth, which he does.
The people here are talking much, of Ne-bra-ka.
and many will come out this fall.
A short time ago I had occasion to vi-it
Pittsburg. Pa., in connection with the
duties of my office, viz: arranging with

I could ce platform cars loaded with
farm machinery destined for the west
and I could not help but think how much
better it would be if I could persuade
some of these skilled workmen to come
to Nebraska, where they could not only
get themselves farms but start manufac
tories in our own State. Just think !
our farmers now pay a large price for
these same machines, and an enormous
freight bill for railroad transportion on
them of all the way from 800 to 1000
miles. This money comes, very much
of it, froui Cass county, and I would
say to capitalists at Plattsmouth, gentle
men, we want Manufactories as badly as

conformed to our popular ideas, it is
practical in its designs. In Europe it is
for the Aristocracy in harmony with
their class .distinctions and ideas. The
University here is a Congress of colleges
de.-igned to take our youth as they leave
our high schools, and furnish them with
the higher culture so many now seek.
It is broad in its basis and plan. It pro
poses to cive its pupils that training:
which is in the line of their natural gift
and chosen cauinjr. It one student n-is
the gifts and the aim calling for it, a col
leco of fine arts invites him. If another
teems with rea' aptitudes to practical
science, mechanics and civil engineering
he can find his training school in th
University. Ifanother aspires to tho
science of Agriculture, an agricukura
college invites him. Law and Medicines
both have their departments. The in-
Lttntion is to bring out what is original in
the man or woman, and not as has been
the fault of too many of our colleges try
to mold every one to the ainc pattern
The Chancellor read letters from Hon.
Geo. II. Pendleton of Ohio and Ira May
hew, a distinguished educator of Michi
gan, expressing surpri-e that Nebraska
hal built so grandly, so young. The
Chancellor's address was received with
great enthusiasm and without qualifica
tion. Tho more he is seen the more
does ho grow into confidence rnd sympa
thy with people. II is opening Thursday
morning to the hundred students who
had gathered lor the urst class in tne
Univer.-ity, was very cordial and sympa
thetic and idaced him at once in the
most coi dial relation's of affection and in
terest with his pupils. I think he won
t lie hearts of all at once.
The University starts off under better
auspices than anything of its kind has
started under bit ore in this country.
Somebody deserves very high prai-e for
wise management in this whole matter.
Indeed the entire management of the
school fund of this State reflects the
highest honor on somebody who had the
foresight to secure a law forbidding the
sale of our school lan Is for less than
even dollars an acre. That law and the
manor men who originated it nas saved
to the common school fund and tiio Uni
versity fund of our State probably ten
million dollars. Let us find that man
and make him Governor.
I see but two practical difficulties in
the way of a grand success for the Uni
versity. Cheap rooms and board must
be in some way furnished tho students. J
I'he Univer.-ity is for the people. But
how are poor men's sons and daughters
to avail themselves of its advantages if
they have to pay five dollars a week for
board? The second want of the Uni-
versit-, is the want of high-schools over
ill the State as feeders. I never felt
before as now the mistake of Platts
mouth. We must hasten to rectify it or
fill far in the rear of all the large towns
in the State. Even Ashland is getting
ahead of us.
These two wants of the University
supplied, cheap rooms and board for the
students, and High Schools for feeders.
and it will not be long; ere there will be
