THE CAPITOL APPROPRIATION
STILL REGARDED UNCONSTITU
Other Exception Preeacd.
The question of the unconstitu
tionality of the appropriation law
to erect two wings to the capital
building at Lincoln continues to
attract 6omc attention from the citi
zens of the State who have been
outraged by the appropriation ot
$75,000 of their money against l heir
consent and wishes. The Journal
has no particular pride of opinion
to gratify iu raising and presenting
exceptions to this capital steal ol
175,000 aud certainly does not envy
the journals who have approved,
justified aud advocated the law and
defended its constitutionality; nei
ther do we claim extensive knowl
edge of civil, criminal or constitu
tional law, and certainly we lay no
claim lo the high distinction iu
which the Daily Lincoln Journal
essays to class us as possessing "a
comprehensiveness aud grip to this
legal opinion that seems to take the
wind out of the ordinary constitu
tional lawyers of the country," but
as an humble and free citizen ot the
State, feeling outraged by this ap
propriation, claim the right to pro
test aud present our exceptions to
the enforcement of this supposed
law for the reasons heretofore, as
signed and others yet to be present
ed that it is unconstitutional aud
never can be enforced or executed
if the proper legal proceedings are
taken to prevent it.
We presented our first exception
to this iuiquitious law brought about
by improper influences, week before
last, insisting that the bill in the
house provided for raising a luud of
$100,000 by the levy of a tax which
when collected was to be applied to
the erection of an additional wing
to the capitol. This provision was
amended in tho senate, the fund
attempted to be appropriated entire
ly changed, consequently every new
provision ot the bill originated in the
senate, and, as an appropriation bill,
is iu direct conflict with the Slate
constitution which provides that al!
appropriations of money shall orig
inate only in the house of represent
atives. We now present the second ex
ception to this law an objection
which originated with Hon. J. S.
Gibson of Omaha, member of the
house from Douglas county, who
presented it to the house when the
bill was returned from the senate,
viz: that after the amendment ot the
bill iu the senate, it became a defi
ciency bill, and, as such, required a
two-thirds vote of both hou-.es. Mr.
Gibson, we believe, was eminently
right in his opposition, and the con
stitution fully bears him out in his
objection. The constitution reads
'Each legislature shall make ap
propriations for the expenses of the
government until the expiration of
the first fiscal quarter alter the ad
journment of the next regular ses
sion, and all appropriations shall
end with such fiscal quarter. And
whenever it is deemed necessary to
make further appropriations for de
ficiencies, the same shall require a
two-thiids vote of all the members
elected to each house."
Clearly showing, in our opinion,
that the bill never received the
number ot votes required by the
constitution aud therefore is void.
Mr. Gibson also presented theob
jcc'iou that the bill was bad in that
it created new offices or appoint
ments, which were to be held by
members ot the legislature, while
the constitution provided who sho'd
be the commissionersof public lands
and buildings, and thus showing
conclusively a direct violation ol
the constitution, and must so be
held whenever the question is pre
sented for adjudication to the proper
tribunal. There are other objec
tions to this law that might be pre
sented, but we believe the excep
tions already stated are sufficient to
show to any unprejudiced mind the
plain fact that the law, iu more than
one particular, is unconstitutional
and therefore void. In our judg
ment it will not require much
"comprehensiveness" or "grip" of
thought to perceive and comprehend
Ihe principles and lacts involved in
the exceptions presented to the
character of the capitol appropria
tion law, and we believe that they
are so plain and easy of comprehen
sion that even Bro. Gere of the
Lincoln Journal, (the bugler of the
band of jobbers), with the exercise
of a little of his natural "grip" can
fully understand them.
Franij L. Dixbv, a prominent
young lawyer, ot Indianapolis, who
a short time ago abandoned his
family aud eloped with his paramour,
and who was a defaulter in a large
sum as assignee aud treasurer, re
turned voluntarily the other day
aud surrendered himself to the U.
S. authorities, aud says he stands
ready to make reparation and re
ceive whatever punishment may be
adjudged him. He is utterly broken
down in spirit.
Hon. Carter Harrison has been
no;njniteil by the greenbackers for
Mayor f the city of Chicago. His
election is assured if he gets the
nomination of the democrats. He

The Lincoln Journal has made
itbclf the special champion of those
members of the general assembly
who violated the wishes of their
constituents iu favoriugv'thc capitol.
Fteal. Of representative Long; of
the 15th district, the Journal "says :
"Mr. Long on his recent visit to
Lincoln assured us that Ihcmajori-
ty of the people of Cuming, Demo
crats as well as Republicans, arc
perfectly satisfied with his vote on
the Capitol appropriation. This is
really the case everywhere, except
perhaps in Buffalo, Platte and Mer
rick Counties, where there was an
expectation of securing the Capital
if it should be removed."
" Pertectly satisfied " is a good
phrase enough, perhaps, but if there
is such a state of feeling as the Jour
nal speaks of, the phrase is altogeth
er loo moderate. Why not say that
the folks at West Point were highly
pleased" with that vote, or words
expressive of an ecstatic slate of de
light with reference to that particu
lar act ef their representative? As
to the JournuVs other assertion in
the above quoted paragraph that
this perfect satisfaction extended
everywhere except perhaps into
Buffalo, Platte aud Merrick counties,
it is one of those sayings that must
be taken with many grains of allow
ance. Antelope couuty is not "per
fectly satisfied" with Trowbridge's
vote; Madison is far from being
"perfectly satisfied" with Speaker
Matthewson's vote ; Polk and Butler
counties we all know arc almost, if
not altogether a unit against senator
Ivirnmel's action, and in favor of
Engelhard's and Clark's, and so on
we might go. The truth is that the
only "perfect satisfaction" in the
matter is with the " gang " that en
gineered the job, and il the people
of the State insist upon it, that sat
isfaction will not last longer than it
will take a proper tribunal to look
into the law and declare it uncon
stitutional. Rev. E. II. Jameson in a sermon
at Omaha Sunday week, on render
ing to Ctcsar the things that are Cju
sar'6uud to God Ihe things lhat are
God's, took occasion to make some
remarks on our general government
that are, alas, too true. Mr. Jame
son, as a remedy urged upon his
hearers (o inlonn themselves, and
try to make things belter. The ar
raignment, reported iu the Omaha
Xeivs, is: "that it was a weak gov
ernment that could not protect
three millions of people whom it
had set free and declared to be citi
zens; it was a weak government
that could not make the south as
safe a place to travel in as' the north ;
it was a weak government that
could nol wipe out the crime of po
lygamy iu Utah ; it was a weak gov
ernment that could not make a sil
ver dollar of its own issue receiva
ble for postage stamps; it was a
weak government that could not
protect the territory of Alaska which
had been bought with the people's
money, but would compel the in
habitants of that territory to seek
British protection; it was a weak
government that could not manage
250,000 Indians without shooting
them down like wolves; It was a
weak government that could not
take care of a few thousand Chinese,
but must resort to Ihe dishonorable
course of breaking a treaty with
China, without giving that govern
ment the right to be heard."
It is suggested that the wheat al
most everywhere iu the United
States last season having been
blighted, it will not be the best for
seed. The Chicago Times of last
Saturday devotes a page to the sub
ject of wheat, and gives the opinions
of several gentlemen who have
given the subject some attention.
J. Z. Worst, who took fair samples
gathered truin railroad stations iu
Iowa, and made careful experiments,
couciu les "that of the crop of 78
the genu was killed iu at least 20
per cent, of the yield, hence the
necessity of a corresponding in
crease in the seed to be sown this
year iu order lo get the usual stand."
The Millers Association ot Minne
sota has rendered great asssislaucc
to tarmcis iu obtaining good seed,
and in this laudable enterprise are
assisted by dealers. It is undoubt
edly the dictate of wisdom for larni
ers to procure the very best seed
their means will allow, aud those
who are compelled to sow blighted
aud inferior grain will do well to
put more to the acre.
Rev. Talmaok made a speech be
fore the presbytery at Brooklyn on
the 11th inst., demanding a trial ol
Ihe charges brought against him.
He said:" "I ' waive the leu days

at $80,000,000 and will produce, un

sumed by unheard of and unlawful
The Herald also makes the as
tounding statement that nearly four
hundred thousand dollars of the ap
propriations made by the legislature
arc spent in the city of Lincoln.
As we stated when Gov. Nanco
approved the capitol appropriation
bill, a reaction has set iu agaiust all
this kind of work, against the Lin
coln lobby, and against the retention
or detention of the capitol at Lin
coln. As much has been said of the los
ses consequent upon the late snow
storms in Western Nebraska, we
reproduce from the North Platte
Republican a summary of opinions
uttered several weeks ago by promi
nent cattle men: Jno. Bratt (-aid

Senator JEwr.TTand Rcpresenta

Jewett, yes; but, before we say

aud passed at the recent session of

was not countenanced by a single

In a recent letter lo one of his per

The point appears to be a good one,
and the fact that this appropriation

prompts us to put forth every avail

evident set of "palm-itching" "job
