Aftor months of vexatious and una
voidable delay tho state board of pub
lie lands and buildings has lot tho
contract for the rebuilding of tho Nor
folk asylum, aud early this spring
building will bo commenced.
The legislative appropriation for tho
roplaciug of tho destroyed main build
ing was $100,000 and for a time it was
foarod this sum was inadequate. How
over, by dint of careful figuring und
ni'iiiy revisions of the plans tho board
succcedod in framing a set of specifi
cations which woro satisfactory to tho
board and tho asylum authorities.

Adjutant General Culver's pot
scheme to bind tho G. A. R. and tho
national guard closoly together by
erecting combined armories aud mom
orial halls for the joint occupancy of
tho two organizations is to bo adopted
in Omaha and is being considered in
other localities. Tho plan is to erect
buildings by private subscription to
bo used as armories nnd drill halls by
tho guard aud as lodgo rooms and
mooting placos by tho veteran organ
izations. Camp fires and other enter
tainments could bo hold in tho hulls
aud it is assorted that in this way

A mild "excitement" was croatod
about the stato houso last weok by tho
published statement that tho greater
part of tho laws of Neorasku were null
und void because tho original bills
contd not bo discovered in tho ofllce
of tho secretary of stato. A careful
investigation reveals tho fact that this
I is another "tempest in n teapot."
Tho laws adopted by tho first terri
torial legislature woro taken in a body

euro all tho apparent defects in tho
statutes, und in 1807 another moasuro
was enacted which declared that inns

cies botwoen tho printed statutes and
enrolled and engrossed bills the print
ed laws should bo acknowledged to bo
tho laws of Nebraska. Tho titlo of
' tho curutlvo not mentioned tho civil
codo, but nothing olso, and bocauso of
this it was thought that all other acta
woro loft in tho same shapo us before,
but Attorney General Prout arises to-

all bills must mention their nurnort

foro tho act was valid nnd binding and

is well-nigh impossible, provious acts,
