At this distance from th& scene of
action it looks to the Journal as
though the duty of our state legisla
ture lay plain and straight before it,
viz: to complete the work assigned
by the governor, at the earliest mo
ment practicable, and thereafter
promptly adjourn. There is a report;
current that a very strong effort will
be made by certain persons to- inter
fere with the machine of legislation in
such a way as' to prevent 'action on
congressional apportionment' at, this
session, and then virtually leave the
selection of our first set, of congress
men to the scheming manipulations
of a trading political convention.
However desirable this latter situa
tion might be to some, we don't be
lieve that any prospective candidates
for congress are hugging such a "de
lusive phantom of hope." We very
moch mistake the temper of the legis
lature, if they shall allow anything or
anybody to interfere with their proper
work, or needlessly prolong the ses
In all ways, concerning the calhfor

sound discretion, leaving nothing to

of the members (who' are free from

and delay, they will have the thank's

comes from the knowledge of a duty

The following from the 'Lincoln
Journal is sufficiently explanatory of
A Colorabus correspondent of the
Omaha Bee finds that in that clause of
the Governor's call for a special ses
sion, naming as a subject for legisla
tion an amendment of oec. 69, chapter
14, Compiled Statutes, was inserted at
the demand of the railroad companies,
and that it proposed to give cities of
the second class further powers to
grant injurious concessions to rail
roads in the matter of occupying
streets and alleys. The fact is that
clause was somewhat reluctantly in
serted by the Governor at the petition
of the Lancaster county delegates,fdr
the purpose of amending that portion
of the section that provides for the
construction of water works, and the
bill was drafted and agreed upon by
the .delegates before the Governor
consented to open the question. Lin
coln is about building wter works,
and there was a complaint of some iu-
deflniteness In the section that migHt
cause trouble in arriving at a legal in
terpretation of the law. The proposed
amendment is to make that portion of
the section a little clearer to avqid
doobt and possible litigation. The al
legation that "Governor Nance' wants
that section amended," and the insinu
ation that he wants it because the rail
roads wants it, is, therefore, a gratuit
ous fling. :"
Lord Cavendish, the new secretary
of Ireland, and Thos. Henry Burke,
nnder secretary, were takiug a walk
in Phoenix Park on tbe 6th inst, about
7 o'clock in the evening, when a cag
drove np containing four men, two
of whom jumped down and attacked
Lord Cavendish and Mr. Burke, sey-
eral times in the throat and breast.The
.The bodies were discovered by two
men who were riding bicycles through
the park, and who immediately gave
the alarm to the police. The body of
Mr. Burke was perforated in a shock?
ing manner and presented a ghastly
sight, and the body of Lord Caven
dish displayed dreadful wounds, in
addition to which his left arm was al
so torn and broken as if he bad put it
op to protect his breast. The object
of the assassins was not robbery, .aa
tbe money and gold watches of the
victims were found in tbeir pockets.
There is no clue to the assassins at.
present, but the police are using every
effort to discover them. u
Esau Harbis was recently captur
ed at Longmont, Colorado, charged
with ditching a Union Pacific freight

dence in the suggestions of Geu.Rem
ick, we give them in shape that those
who have purchased trees may save
them and finally secure orchards and
fruit. His plan is to plant three grains
of corn, eight or nine inches apart, on
the south side of the tree, about a foot
from the tree. This serves to break
tbe hot rays of tbe sun, and to protect
it from the hot sonth winds. He
places a peck of straw mulching abont
each tree, and covers it with dirt. The
mulching will hold dampness for a
long time. Keep manure away from
the bark of tbe tree. There is yet

trees planted this spring, and save
