tha lGdiand 32J wlitn occupied and im
proved prior ta the surveys, has tempora
rily abridged the laud fund lut it it the
duty of the County Superintendent (Chap.
18, Sec. 9,) to examine, allot in parcels,
and ralue the auctions not thus occupied,
as well os others after they shall bare
been selected. I respectfully call atten
tion to this and tha other requinnents of
the law, so that eilsting resources may be
made available, and the system put in
force ly the first Monday of May 1953,
the proximate time for the regular meet
ing in each school district.
For information as to the state of the
Treasury reference i made to the Report
of the Ireasury herewith suomitteu.
The revenue low now in for- e. is inappli
cable, and almost inoperative, and requires
thorough and curl) revision.
While the military spirit of our citi
zens is believed to be unabated, drill and
discipline have been greatly neglected.
Companies exist in nearly every county,
but their organization in many cases is
imperfect or suffered to decline on account
of changes of residence. These delicien
cies should be supplied. Situated on the
frontier, we bhould bo provided, at all
times, for self-defence, or co-operation
with the Government, against internal en
emies. Our election law needs an amendment,
requiring County Clerks to transmit to
Territorial Secretary a list of the county
officers elect in each year, and of all the
resignations or removals of officers or No
During every session special acts have
been passed appointing Iload Commission
ers. Ureal inconvenience has resulted
from their negligence or inattention. It
is suggested tbat penalties should be im
posed for such nou-fuinilinent, or that
County Supervisors should be annually
Your attention is called to a more rig
id enforcement of the net to prevent the
firing of Woods, Marshes and Prairies
(page 196, 1st Statutes,) to insure pres
ervation of property and growth of lim
ber. Notaries Public are reminded to'keep
a fair record of their official acts, (Chap.
16, page 58, 2d Statutes.)
It is also suggested that complication in
County accounts may be avoided by as
signing the duties of School Fund Com
missioner to the County Treasurer.
Our agricultural and productive resources,
may be developed by aiding the formation of
industrial societies in every county. Prem
iums, though small at first offered by indi
vidual or associations for tlie largest useful
crop, the best improved stock, kc ; would in
vite competition ana rriu a nucleus ror
wealthy combinations. Nor can it be believed
that the encouragement given by a small ap-
trotriation to each county from the Territor
ial revenue, for the purpose of increasing the
most fruitful of all sources of profit would fail
to meet the sanction of tlu people.
The number of copies of tha laws hereto
fore ordered to be printed has been insulfici
ent. The editions of the first two years are
nearly exhausted, and the dvumsd increasing.
At least 2000 copies of the statutes of this
rion should be published, and thSecretary
instructed to soil the remaining volumes, after
distrbuting the au'uorued number to the pub'
It is a source of gratification to consider the
actual progress oi the Territory, in the past
vear, by the acquisition of property, ana the
rapid se'tlement by pre-emption. A large
and valuable tract of land has been secured
from the Pawnees, through the treaty framed
witli them bv Commissioner J. W. Denver.
The Cheifs of the Punca tribe have recently
repaired to the Federal Capitol, witn the in.
disn Affent J. B. RoberLson, with the intcu
tion of concluding a similar treaty, and ceding
their unsurpassed farming and timber lands.
The United States Wagon Road from the
Platte River via the Omaha reserve to the
Running Water, .L'eau qui court under the

-Th Ksbraska Is greater than New
Tork and the New England Statea. Our In
vigoraUng clisate, productive soil and natur
al advauUges will attract multitudes of emi
grants driven to our shores by the political
troubles of the Old World. Politically, we
havt equal reason to rejoice. Our future In
crease will give ne the control, to a great ex
tent, of the country's political destiny i and it
is rt'fyinj hal that power will be need with
a patriotic and unfaltering determination to
defend the Federal Constitution, and preserve
the Union of the States. Safe, thus far, from
the Interference of reckless agitators, and the
mad efforts of intolerant fanatics, we can fur
nish to the world an'envlable proof of the ge
nius and spirit of our Republican Istitutions.
No retribution can be too severe, If, through
casuistry, or local strifes, or political li. fideli
ty, we prove recreant to that beautiful feder
ative system to which we owe our existence,
and under which alone we can achieve true
and permanent greatness.
I have thus presented to you, gentlemen,
plainly and hurriedly, such considerations as
nave occurred to me uncertain, until the eve
of your assembly, whether, in my incidental
position, such a communication would be re
quired. Once before, we have met under sim
ilar circumstances. Since that initial period,
the bitterness of sectional strife has been
easurably allayed. Strange faces and new
interests have taken their places upon tbs
stsge, and mat y of the actors in our early his
tory have passed away, or been loet in the
throng of events. Men, out of repair, poltl-
cally or morally, will continue to be prostrat
ed, one bv one i and their names expire with
the forgotten influences of the past l but our
owerful young Territory will move on witu
uemented and prevailing force i and realize
in its future fortunes, all that human hope or
tubition can anticipate or wish.
Acting for that territory in a coordinate ca
pacity, and in view of the mutations of public
affairs, and the vicissitudes of life permit
me to assure you, each and ail, that I cherish
sincere desire for your succees, Individually
i well as iu your endeavors to promote the
public good, May no personal resentment or
iicnauons iiereancr mar iu uariuuur vr.uca
hould prompt and inspire the intercourse of
the Representatives of the Government and of
our people t may no bouudry, natural or a run
