The republican senators have con
cluded in view of the fact that they
have a majority in the senate they
should at once be permitted to
organize the senate and close up the
executive business, but on the other
hand the democrats are determined
to check and Btop necessary business,
and thus delay and hinder the Ex
ecutive in confirming or rejecting
his nominations. Senators are only
the servants ofthe people, and should
in all cases execute their will and
represent their interests.
It is rumored that a war of races
has broken out in the valley of
Canete, one of the most fertile prov
inces in Peru, South America. ItiB
reported in this connection that over
two thousand Chinamen have been
murdered by negroes, and cholas,
aud cane fields, sugar houses, ma
chinery, and other property, to the
value of millions, destroyed. It is
stated that the work of murder and
pluuder is still going on, and all for
eigners have fled from the valley.
It is apprehended that similar scenes
will be enacted throughout Peru.
The bad woather has prevented
work upon bridges that went down
in the receut floods on the Loup and
Platte, and it will take considerable
time before they cau be replaced,
but, while the weather is unfavora
ble to bridge building with the
actual material aud muscle work, it
is at the same time favorable to the
theoretical part of the same; plans
ot action can be talked over ; schemes
cau be thought of; provisions can be
made to take full advantage of the
first good weather that sets in. These
remarks are applicable generally
throughout Nebraska, particularly
on the Platte and Loup rivers wher
ever they were bridged, but more
particularly at Columbus, which is
interested just now in the recon
struction or repair of two railroad
bridges and two wagon bridges
across these streams.
Whatever this city r precinct
concludes to do in regard to securing
the initial point of the Omaha, Nio
brara & Black Hills road ought to
be done during this temporary break
in the elements that forbids actual
work by the company to put that
road in running order. The breaks
and troubles and extra work caused
elsewhere will prolong this suspense
somewhat, but the enormous losses
of the company will not tend to
lessen their demand, and it becomes
us to do what we can now. The
Journal does not wish to be con
sidered too urgent in this matter,
but we regard the future welfare of
Columbus as depending greatly upon
this enterprise, aud we wish to see it
secured at once, ami beyond a doubt.
We know that the management of
the U. P. road desire, this result, as
all their acts since tho matter was
broached to them show, but tho sit
uation is such (wo believe) that, as
managers of the affairs of the Com
pany, they can not offer the road on
easier terms than have been pro
posed. Would it not be well enough for
our citizens to come together again,
and see if the utmost has been done
on the part of this precinct, by way
of preliminary guarantee, in secur
ing the support of tho voters for the
measuro of aid asked of us ?

Section 4 of the uew law is as fol
lows :
"Tho treasurer of each district
shall, within ten days after his elec
tion, execute to the district and file
with the director a bond of not less
than five hundred dollars in any
instance, nor less than double the
amount of money, as near as can be
ascertained, to come into his hands
as treasurer at any ono time, with
sufficient sureties, to be approved by
by the director and moderator, con
ditioned for the faithful discharge
of the duties of his office ; such bond
sliall be filed in the office of the
county clerk of the county wherein
the school district is situated; aud
if he shall fail to execute such bond,
his office shall be vacant, and the
board shall thereupon appoint a
treasurer, who shall be subject to
the same powers as if elected to that
By the above it will be seen that the
treasurer files his bond with the di
rector, whose duty, (it iB presumed)
it is to file the same with the county
clerk. The object of this is that any
parties in interest may have the
bonds convenient of reference.
The high waters of the Missouri
at Omaha exceed any flood ever
known, rising nearly twenty-one
feet above low water mark, extend
ing over the valley from bluff to
bluff, varying iu width from four to
six miles, flooding the Union Pacific
shops, and throwing out of employ
ment thirteen hundred men. The
water breaks over the track and
sweeps everything before it. The
lumber yard6 were under water and
expected to float away. Council
Bluffs inundated, and a broad and
deep stream flowing through Spoon
Lake, and citizens on the lowest
grounds compelled to abandon their
houses aud go up higher. At the
hour the report was made, it waB
impossible to give an accurate ac
count of the damage done or that
will be done, but it may run to mil
lion dollars, and perhaps more.
S. P. Rounds, the well-known
Chicago "printers' man," has been
proposed for the office of govern
ment printer. We venture to say
that a better selection could not be
made in the United States. Sterling
is every fibre a printer, as his life
and works do shoV, from his boy
hood, up to his manhood's prime.
He knows the whole road, and he
knows it very thoroughly. His
remarkable success in business, evi
dences that combination of faculties
which endows their possessor with
what is recognized as rare executive
ability. Rounds is a Chicago man ;
a sound republican; an upright,
honest man ; a splendid printer, and
would fill the position, in every res
pect, handsomely, and we, with his
host of warm friends, would rejoice
to see Sterling P. Rounds "in."
During the high' water at Omaha
on the 7th a 6ad accideut occurred
in the drowning of Nicholas Neenan
and Michael Cunningham near the
rip-rap. They started out in a skiff
to go to ths rip-rap, which they
reached in safety, just above the
break of about fifty feet across the
rip-rap, and then tried to cross to
the other side, where the current
was very strong and swift, which
swept them into the main stream
and among the crushing and grind
ing ice, where they went down and
disappeared perhaps forever, as by
the rush of the mighty waters it is
difficult to guess where their bodies
may rest in the future.

We no longer belong to the "float

stand in need of a "float representa

telegraph poles between here and
Columbus was considered the "most
unkiudestcut of all." Bellwood is
stranded just above high water
mark, the snow is a thing of the
