C. L. MATHER,
THURSDAY, MAY 14 1874.
From all parts of tha State and country res
pectfully solicited .
We do not read anonymous letters and com
mnnic&liona. The name awl .-uldress of the wri
ter are in all cases indispensable, a a guaranty
From the T incoln Journal.
Returns from the awessoM of twenty
one counties beioj? in, and the popula
tion of old nod new counties being about
the same a- in the whole State, we Lave
a pietty safe baH upon which to calcu
late the present population of our State.
The foilo.riiu table shows the popula
tion of tbe?e twenty-one comities in 170
and IS 4 :
-' 91 J
Thayer f '
Total 23,174 S0.G12.
Taking this as a fair average of the in
crease of the population of tho State,
only two counties Furnas aod Sherman
being included that had no .-ettleuieiit in
1870, we hud the ratio of increase is
28.56fi, a little ovr two ar.d eight and
oiif-halfteti hs. .Multiplying the total
population of thi State in 1870 which
wi-i according to the United Strifes cen
sm report 122,993, and v' hive ai the
population to-day 35I.4fio. A the pro
portion of new cowjtie.- is more than two
in twenty-one of the whole number of
organized counties, we may with good
reason expect thi to be below the actual
fU'itre.t that the returns will how Rut
we have no diubt that we shall be foucd
with over 350.0J0, inhabitants, giving us
a .sufficient population tocutitle us under
the present apportionment, to three
members of Congress.
The full quota for three members
would be 411,000. as 137.000 is the ratio
to a member. But the new apportion
ment law gives to a fraction over one
half the ratio an additional member in
each State. For two members the pro--tfvtiniUattaycJax&.aav.w
between 322,500 and 41 1.000. '
It is of cour e, one thing to have the
populatiuii, and another thing to get the
additional representation. We have
heretofore expressed our doubt as to the
prospect The jealousy of the East of
the growing power of the West iu Con
ureth increases and intensifies with each
succeeding year, and the manner in
which the apportionment was manipula
ted three years ago, by which home of
the New England States were arbitrarily
given representation, additional to that
they were untitled to by the cenus re
turns, while no provision whatever was
made for the trail ,-Mis-ouri Slates that
wete known to be inereasiuc from twenty
five to fifty our cent, aomnllv. suffie:e?ilv
lv indicate the allium- of Congress The
local fight on the currency que-tion will
only increase this hostility, and result in
new wrongs, unle. all the Wet and
Son.thwe.-t from the Alleghanies to the
I acino can be iriducjd to concentrate it
votes for mutual protection. Whi c we
trust this will be .one, we confes that
it U doubtful, as thcro is much jealou-y
between the Western States divided by
the Mississippi, and even by the Mis
bouri river and the Sierra Neva-la.
Yet in tho face of these difficulties,
Nebraka will be recreant to her dutv
and unworthy of a position as a sovereign
State, if he does not make a lively fight
in behalf of her rights. The greater th
injustice intended the more emphatic
should be our outcry, and the more de
termined the effort of our Representa
tives. From the present Congre.n, it
will perhaps be uieless to expect action,
although there will be time to make our
cae out before the session closes. Rut
it will not take i very terious amount of
opposition at this lalu day to postpone
the matter, even if a work ins maioruv
can be had in our favor. Never hele.-s
the sooner the issue is brought up the
better, and we strongly recommend that
as soon as the Secret-ry of State has the
returns in his office, an official abstract
of the Mine be forwarded to our Con
greional delegates, for th-m to use as
a basis for a bill giving Nebraska two
additional Representatives in Congress.
The coming legislature, in case this
bill was by the strenuous exertions of
our Senator and Coiigtosmen, pnssed,
can district the State, leaving our first
delegates to be elected at large, or what
would be better a special session might
be called prior to the October election,
and the districts formed and the cleetioh
had by districts next fail.
But it, as is likely, no success shall be
attained during the present session of
Congress, we are in favor of the Dlao of
electing two ocntiBgcst Coagiessaen
next fall. snd making the fight for their
admissiou into the next Congress, upon
the showing of the enumeration, this
if Congress refuses, of course their is
no appeal, but the effort should be re
newed after the more elaborate state
census that our constitution direct to be
taken next year.
'f his year's census will hhow an in
crease of about 220,000 inhabitants since
1870. Recognising the fact that Ic-s
thau one-balf of the increase of the cur
rent year has yet been made, inspection
will show that we have added forty per
cent annually to our population. This
rate will rive us. uext sunns, as acere-
I gate of 490,000, a population that would
j entitle ut to iourBiiuber, having as a
fraction over the rat:o for three the pop
I ulation that would entitle us W four
.member-, Dnviug a ircuos over tue
ratio for three the popttkuou at' 79,000.
fusing us additional reptc-entation, the
con-equence will be that Nebraska, io
13S0, will have one beecarlr member for
something ovor a million of people, an
injustice t a State without a parallel in
the history of the nation.
I.NAVALE, May 15th, 1374.
Mn. Editor: Mrs. John Jenkins
Biys that when "Betei'" writes for the
"papers, she is apt to carry things too far
and John think- so too. The trouble is
they are conservative people, while she
is a radical. I intend to write, some
day. a regular ranservativc article, which
willl pleae Mrs. J., ao John. But, at
present, I want to tell your readers of
an incident that occurred here one day
la-t week, which pleased one man so
much that he hardly knew all dy
whether he stood on his head or his
feet. He is poor. like the rest of us,
and by some misfortune he has Ion hi
team, and had no visible means of get
ting in hi- crop. But that morning, to
his surpri-e, his neighbors came one
after another, and commenced to plow,
and otliTwi-c prepare his ground for
then some uore came with a
coruplanter and planted it . and. also,
twe others with the rcqui-ite machinery
and put him down a well. The women
came with laden, baskets and took pos
session of the house, and a bountifu
din net was prepared for the laborers.
When the unn noticed that they were
uearly all Grangers, he began to under
stand the mattet, as his wife is. a member
that order, fhrouu'li some of their
committees, they had ascertained that
she was iu need of assistance.
Hal. is a Granger, und he has always
wanted me to ioin, and I believe I shall
do so now, for I begin to see that they
can do seme good in the world
It is .a noted fact that for raising
children Nebraska can beat the world
according to her population. Men arc
known to have been married for years,
aud mourn foi that which they could not
get a child, and a- a last ro-ort come to
Nebraska. In the course of events that
which they mo-)t desired is granted them,
and they are often heard to say, "Ne-bra-ka
is the place for me." Fairmont
AWomn Bokn July: 4, 1776
One of the nio-a remarkable old ladijs of
our time is Miss Lucy Laiigdon NowjII,
who was born in Alfred, Me., July 4,
1776, on the diy and very near the hour
of the signing of the Declaration of In
dependence. When eight years of age
she united with the Alfred Shakers, and
ha since livid with them. When eigh
ty fonr years of age she wove thirty-four
yards of cloth, and at ninety-six knit ten
pairs of mittens. She has never been
in a railroad car, and is in excellent
health. If she lives until 1876 a Pull
man palace car will be carried direct to
the Quaker City, where her presence
will be one of the features of the itrand

terms of payment, 4c.
7ZS FOLLOWING EITBACTS
From the Circulars of the B. A M. R.
R. Co., will in a measure, explain their
terms and the advantages offered.
The purchaser can pay ca-b, or di
vide the amount into three equal parts,
paying oue-third down, one third iu one
year, and one-third iu two years, with
ioteres at ten per cent, annually; or he
can hare ten years' time in which to
make na tbesoaa by .small. anuual pay
ments at six per-cent. interest.
Most buy on this httcr plan of
TEN YEARS' CREDIT!
In which case the purchaser pays
at the outset one year's interest at six
per-cent- on the price. He makes three
other payments, each of ix per cent
at the commencment of the second,
third and fourth years. At the commenc
ment of the fifth year, he pays one
feventb of the ptiodpal aud one yeari
interest on the remainder, and the same
at the commeocnent of each snecessive
year until all has been paid at the end
of ten yeam. Any buyer caa pay in fall
at any time and get a warranty deed free
of all incumbrance.
Buyers on our Jong and gaera cred
it, of tea years, are expected to settle
and improve their knd at their e'arliest
convenience, say within one or two years
so as to ia prove about three tesths of
the land bought, within three years from
date of purchase.
