Tiie prospective removal of Gen
eral Military Headquarters from
Washington to St. Louis, has stirred
up a hornet's nest among the jour
nalistic fraternity id the National
CapitoL It seems to us, however,
that General Sherman is doing the
country groat service by removing
his headquarters from the putrid
and corrupting .surroundings of the
paving rings, bank rings, railroad
rings and public plunder rings.
The most encouraging evidences
of Nebraska's future prosperity will
be found in the .Bee's Nebraska
crop notes. Never were prospects
for a baunteous harvest brighter or
Our crop notes embrace nearly
every county in the State, and the
cheering intelligence comes from
cverj' quarter that "the grain and
fruit prospect never looked better;"
Should these anticipations be real
ized, the wheat crop of 1874 alone
will not fall short of twelve million
bushels. At ninety cents per bushel
the income from this source alone
would realize to the farmers of Ne
braska, over ten million dollars.
This would solve the curreucy prob
lem even without the aid of Congress.
Tho Lieutenant-Governor shall be
President of .-the Senate, and may
vote when the Senate is equally
divided, but not upon a question re
lating to a bill in any stage thereof,
nor upon a joint resolution, requir
ing the vote of a majority of the
members elected to the Senate, nor
in a contested election of a member
of the Senate, nor in the election of
a Senator in Congress. The Senate
shall choose a President iro m
pore, who will serve during its
pleasure. He shall preside when the
Lieutenant-Governor is absent or
impeached, or acting as Governor.
Three important propositions are
submitted separately, namely, mi
nority, representation, traffic in in
toxicating liquors and railroad aid.
The latter article reads as follows:
The General Assembly may, by
general laws, authorize any town
ship, city or incorporated village to
aid any railroad company in the
construction of its road, within this
State, subject to the following re
strictions, and such others as may
be prescribed by law.
Nosultscriptionloan or contribu
tion for such purpose shall be made
unlessauthorized at an election held
in pursuance of law, ky at least
two-thirds of all the electors of such
township, city or -village, to be as
certained in such manner as may
be prescribed bj- law, and sub
ject to the further conditions of
Section 4 of Article 11, when appli
cable. Nor shall such aid be gran
ted until the township, city or vil
lage granting the same shall have
adequate security that the road so
aided will be completed. At such
election, no person shall vote who
shall not have resided In the town
ship, city or .village for bIx months
prior thereto. No such election
U shall beld until the part of the road
upon which the expenditure is to be
made has been located and estab
lished nor oftener than once a
year, nor shall aid bo voted
to more than one railroad at
any election. The order for election
shall specify all the conditions of
such loan, subscription, or contribu
tion, tho consideration proposed to
be given therefor, the estimated cost
of the proposed work, tho means
for its completion, and the part of
the work on which the proposed
subscription, loan, or contribution is
to be expended. Provision may be
made 03 law for tho Issue of stock or
bonds for the amount of any such
subscription or loan ; but no town
ship, city, or village shall
be liable for the debts of
the company. Tho obligations
of a township, city, or village, in
curred for such purpose, shall not
bear greater interest than seven per
cent, per annum, nor shall the ag
gregate thereof at any time exceed
live per centum of the value of the
property of such township, city, or
village, as aspprtajned by the late
tax duplicate. The aggregato of tho
tax levied by a township, city, or
village, to pay such obligations and
interest, shall In no year exceed one
per centum of such value."

be submitted for ratification to the
people, on the 18th of August next
The actual time consumed by this
c-mvention in discussing and fram
ing the provisions contained in the
new constitution, was one hundred
and eighty-eight days. Inasmuch
as this document is the embodiment
of tho most modern views upon
popular self-government, it will
doubtless serve as a model to the
coming Constitutional Convention
of Nebraska. A few- of its most
striking points may therefore, not
be without interest to that portion of
our readers, who are sufferers from
what might be called constitution on
The legislative article makes
every person interested in a con
tract with an unadjusted claim
against tho State, ineligible to
membership in the Legislature. It
gives qualified veto power to the
Govenor, which may be overruled
by a three-fifths vote in each house,
Instead of two-thirds or three
fourths, as has heretofore been cus
tomary. Jt provides that on tho
passage of appropraition bills, or on
concurring in the amendments
thereto, "a separate vote on any
item or items therein shall, on de
mand of any member, be had by
yeas and nays, entered on the jour
nal; and every such item failing to
receive the vote of the requisite ma
jority of tho members elected to tbe
Houe hi which the bill is pending,
shall be stricken therefrom, and
each item receiving such majority
shall be declared passed."
The section governing general
laws reads as follows :
All laws of a general nature shall
have a uniform operation through
out tho State. No act or part of an
act, except such as relates to public
schools, public buildings, or public
bridges shall be passed to take effect
upon a vote of the people to be af
fected thereby, or upon the approval
of any otheruuthority than the Gen
eral Assembly, except as otherwise
provided in this Constitution; nor
shall any act be passed conferring
special powers or privileges upon
any county, township, city, village,
or other municipality, not conferred
upon all counties, townships, cities,
villages, and municipalities of the
same general class.
Tho executive article contains tho
following striking features :
In case of the death, impeach
ment, resignation, removal, or di
abilityof the Governor, the powers
. and duties of the office, for the resi
due of term, or until he shall be ac
quitted, or the disability "removed,

"We took a drive out through the
country, Monday of this week. The
small grain looks splendid, and the
farmers say that they have the best
prospect for a good crop at present
than they have had for many years.
"We saw a great many fields of corn
up almost high enough to plow, and
also a great many teams breaking
up the ground preparatory to plant
ing. The fanners are all putting in
a heavy crop this year, and if the J
season proves favorable, Saunders
county will turn off double the
amount of grain this fall tliat she
ever has. Ashland Times.
