The proposition to call an extra
session of the present Legislature
for the purpose of reapportioning
the legislative representation and
calling a constiutioual convention,
htwnlroadv been briefly reviewed 1
by the Bee. General Vifquain re
sumes his arguments in favor of his
peculiar plan in another column.
The Lincoln Journal also contains
lengthy arguments mainly directed
to refute tho points made by the.
Bee against the legality of such a
Inasmuch as this subject seems to
engross the attention of a very large
portion of tho people of this State,
we deem it proper to continue the
, discussion. Equitable representa-'
tion seems to be the fundamental
motive that impels General Vif
quain in tho name of the disfran
chised "West to demand a reappor
tionment of the Legislature .under
the present Constitution, while the
same motive seems to impel the
Journal to seek its solution through
a new Constitution.
In order to accommodate General
Vifquain, the Governor would have
to .call an extra session prior to the
October election. In order to ac
commodate the Journal he "would
have to call an extra session soon
after that election. It would be im
possible for the Legislature frame
a Constitutional Convention bill be
fore the people had voted for such a
measure, and it would be impractic
able and illegal for the legislature to
reapportion the State after the peo
ple had elected their new Legisla
ture In October.
Here then i3 a radical difference
botweon these Doctors. Taking
each proposition separately we
reach the following points :
General Vifquain cites two
precedents to prove that reapportion
ments, contrary to express consti
tutional laws, have been made In
"Nebraska. He cite? the apportion
ments of 1SC4 and 18G7 in proof.
Now the apportionment under the
Territorial form of Government
cannot be accepted as a proper pre
cedent, because the Legislature that
framed Itwa3 not barred in action
by constitutional limitations. The
apportionment of 1SC7 was made in
accordance with Section 4, of the
Schedule, which authorized, the re
apportionment by implication.
There is therefore, no precedent
that can be fairly claimed to form a
Bafe basis for the General's plan.
Even if there was a precedent
where Constitutional provisions had
been deliberately violated, they
could not be accepted a3 authority
for other flagrant violations of the
fundamental law. Wo cannot ac
cept the present census law as com
ing within the meaning of the Con
stitutional provision governing ap
portionment, The General's ad
mission that increased representa
tion cannot be had under the pres
ent Constitution until 1S76, would
imply that hi-j main object in de
manding reapportionment now
is to give tho west a fair rep
resentation In the coming Constitu
tional Convention. The Legislature
of 1875 wll have the right to appor
tion and fix tho number of mem
bers to that Convention. There is no
reason to doubt that they will seek
to do so in accordance with . tho
latest returns, say on the basis of
the vote in October. This, it seems
to us will cover the ground. Now,
as to the JournaVs constitutional
plan, our Lincoln contemporary
It must have knowS that the

bracing the returns of votes for
members of the legislature, for
county and precinct oilicers, and it
(the Bee) must have known that
these returns are not very frequent
ly "sealed up and transmitted to
the seat of Government," but are
canvassed by the County Clerk and
a Board of Canvassers appointed by
Now had we not before called
the attention of the Bee to this fact
there would have been some excuse
for its misrepresentation of tli
As we have before said the terms
of the Constitution that make it
necessary that the vote for or
against a Constitutional Convention,
shall be taken at a "general elec
tion" not of Stato ollieers, but of
"members of tho Legislature."
would in the abscuce of any other
provision indicate that the vote
should be canvassed and counted t
the same way a9 the vote for mem
bers of the Legislature, and bo pub
lished at the. same time and man
ner. Hence we claim that it will
be tho duty of the Bsard of Can
vassers that count the votes for
members of the House of Represen
tatives to canvass tho voto on the
Constitutional Convention and
certify the same to the Secretary of
the State. In case they are directed
to do so bv the Governor in his
election proclamation thero would j
be no . tloubt-jAvhatcver -as to the
regularity o(, the proceedings."
The Journal ought to have known
that the reason why the -returns for
members of the Legislature are not
sealed up andc3uvassed in joint
Convention is because the Constitu
tion provides expressly that each
House shall be the sole judge ofjtho
election and Qualification of Its
that the Constitu
tion can be construed to mean a
Irvml inviiM Viv viiinHr Piprks. Is
just as absurd as is the definition
that "general elections' does not pos-
itively imply elections for State offr
ce.-s. The fact' is that mem
bers of the Legislature may
be elected at special elections,
but State officers nqver can be. The
Governor may authorize County
Clerks to canvas the vote on con
stitution in his proclamation just as
he may do anything else not author
ized by law. Even if "this mode
was adopted how, when and where
would the canvass be made in order

sections of the State regardless of

Editor Omaiia Bee :
Inasmuch that I have failed in
convincing you of the propriety to
have an extra session of the Legis
lature called (as I see In your yester
day's daily) for the purpose to re
apportion and re-district the State,
sometime this summer, so as to
allow the west to elect members for
the next Legislature at the next
October general election, I am,
sir, compelled to claim onco again
the favor of your columns, for the
purpose to show you' that if you
object to my proposition upon the
simple ground of technicalities, I
can give you a precedent to go by.
I do so reluctantly; because I am
somewhat ashamed to make so
many appeals to tho sense of the pub-
hlic, of you and others to remedy an
injustice, aye, a flagrant outrage
upon a portion of our fellow
Precedents, are in matter of law,
held vory often as final in the de
cisions of our Judges, even if such
precedents upset more or less the
present mode of affairs ; and a law
yer's talent is, I presume, in pro
portion to the depth he has to dig
to find precedents so that a prece
dent of two or three hundred years'
standing, based upon the
wants of that day is, 1 suppose,
better than a plain fact based upon
the wants of tho people at this day;
for this reason, sir, I am somewhat
.down on precedents. Besides if
precedents are necessary, or may
be so, for certain decisions upon
statute laws, it is a matter of doubt
with me, if they are so absolutely
necessarj' upon constitutional law
as you and others do infer. Being
simply a farmer, I hope you will
excuse my poor knowledge of the
law, if it isjiotin full accord with the
spirit of the law. I have thus far
only founded my personal basis of
such a knowledge upon my. most
earnest desires to remain a law
abiding citizen, and none for the
"Will you please look over the
laws of the Legislative Assembly of
the Territory of Nebraska for the
year 18C4, and you will find on
pages 18S-190, the apportionment of
our then Territory. Then, sir, you
will pleae look upon the laws of
tho State of Nebraska for the year
18G7, and on pages 01-62 you will
find another apportionment and
districting of our State, which does
not correspond with the one of 1S64.
Now, sir, if you look upon Sec. 144
of the schedule of our present con
stitution you will, I presume, come
to the conclusion that'the law pass
ed and approved June 10, 1SG7, was
By your interpretation of Sec. 3
Art. 2 of the constitution it is not
constitutional to re-apportion and
redistrict the State except in 1870
and 1875; will you then tell me how
it was done in 1867, more than one
year after the adoption of our pres
ent constitution and organization as
a State in this Union ?
I am informed by reliable author
ity, sir, that when the law of June,
1867, was under diseuvion its ui
constitutionality was discussed by
the opponents of the law, and thej
only submitted, if I do well under
stand the facts, after having con
sulted Judge Jameson, who is I
believe authority on constitutional
law; and if Uwas authority in June,
1867, will you please tell me why It
should not bo authority in June,
1874, especially when the wants of
the people demand it a great-deal
And as to your comments upon
my proposition, allow me to tell you
that your parallel between the
redistricting of the judiciary of our
State, and that of our Legislature is
not a fair one. -In common with
many others I think our judiciary
system unsound, but nevertheless
we all suffer equally from the evi',
and in tho whole, there are no favors,
shown by it to the eastern portion
of tho Stale, which we can not pro
cure equally in the western part.
My friends, Miller, "WaKely and
Woblworth, as well ns the Hon.
John Taffe, may tell you that in the
main I am correct as to tho facts;
and in Nebraska you well know
'the oldest settler, and so forth," is
somewhat of a notorious authority,
and. It plainly shows wherefrora the
the wtna olew In 1867, and whereat
it does not blow in 1874.
We, hope much from a new
constitution, but we would like
mighty well to attend that consti
tutional convention in proportion to
the population, and not to to be left

Seuatar Griggs may,tell you what
trouble we had in securing an every

years, and now that "the cat is out
opthe bag," we might, perhaps, in
our new constitution, second edi
tion, go short that wise provision,
provided the appointment of dele
gates is the same as it was In 1871.
And now, sir, if I am correct m
my above statements-, I see no
reason why you should not coincide
with our views of the matter. "We
