Inasmuch as Mr. Blake, the gen

not cost $1,500.
AccoRUiNa to the Chicago Tri
bune, Jay Gould has by a flank
movement succeeded in capturing
the Pacific Mail steamship com
pany, which until now has been the
most formidable rival of the Union
and Central Pacific This signal
victory was won by a strategic ma
neuvrc at the recent election of
Pacific Mail directors. He sent to
stockholders a specious circular
glorifying the natch administra
tion, and, by means of its repre
sentations, secured proxies enough to
elect a ticket of which tho Hatch
element is a very significant part.
When the bill for the admission
of New Mexico comes up in the
Senate a very lively debato is an
ticipated. It appears that, with tho
exception of Senator Hamlin, tho
entire New England delegation is
opposed to this nie2urc. This is
principally owing tosectionaJ jeal
ousy of the growing power of the
West. "Western Senators, on the
other hand, are said to be almost a
unit in favor of the bill. The Mid
dle and Southern States hold the
balance of power, but the friends of
the bill are sanguine of success.
A mrktixq of the Executive
Board of the Republican State Cen
tral Committee has been called by
the chairman, at Omaha, on June
9th. The" principal objects of the
meeting are the adjustment of
finances, and the propriety of con
vening the State Central Committee
for the purpose of issuing the call
for the Republican State Conven
tion. Inasmuch as many of our
Republican contemporaries have
exhibited much anxiety touching
the movements of the committee,
we deem it best to keep them fully
informed about the programme.
AD now the Grand Island Itmcs
announces its conversion to General
Vifquaine's favorite scheme of leg
islative re-appdrtionment. "With
the object sought to be attained bj
this scheme, our readers are doubt
less familiar. It is evident, how
ever, that the editor of the Grand
Island Times is laboring under a
most serious misconception when he
assumes that it promises practical
results. This is excusable when it
Is borne in mind that he is a com
parative stranger in Nebraska, and
lias had no time to familiarize him
self with our political affairs.
"While General Vifquain's plan
may sound very plausible to him
we hope that a closer investigation
will dispel that delusion. Waiv
ing all legal and constitutional
objections its ultimate success de
pends on two propositions. First,
that the Governor shall become
convinced that legislative re-apportionment
is one of the extrordinary
emergencies contemplated by that
article of our .constitution, which
empowers him to convene the
legislature in special session.
Second, upon the willingness of the
legislature to carry out the Govern
or's recommendation, and their
abUty to agree upon 'any ze-appor-,
"We will assume that the Gover
nor does convene the Legislature,
and the legislature is willing to act
upon his recommendation. It will
therefore only' remain to be seen
whether they can agree upon any
bill for the. redistribution of repre
sentatives upon the basis of the
State census of 1874. And here,
would, if this programme be adop
ted, be the rock upon which General
Vifquain's air castle would inevita
blv crumble to pieces.
No matter what shape they would
give to tne various msincus, urac
could only be thirteen Senators and
thirty-nine Representatives for the
Now, although the Legislature of
1871, which framed the present ap
portionment law, was, under the
constitution, compelled to pass such
an act, the struggle over this bill
was most protracted and bitter. Does
any sane man suppose that the pres
ent legislature which is not in duty-
bound to pass such a law would be
ble to harmonize upon it? At least
ten outof the thirteen Senatorial dis
tricts would embrace two or more
counties, and some of them would
necessarily include from six to
twelve counties. Now, suppose that
the member from Saline should de
sire his county attached to Gage,
Thayer and Nuckols counties,
while the member from Lancaster
should insist upon tacking Saline
county to Lancaster, is there any
likelihood that either of them could
be made to recede.
It would be tho same with all the
other counties. Does anybody ex
cept General' Vifquain believe that
anything short of a re-apportionment
based upon an increase of
representation could be harmonized
on, either in the present or the com
ing Leglslatro? And this can only be
had through a new constitution,
Recognizing this fact, the Bee advo
cated the new constitution in 1872,
in tho face of an overwhelming local
sentiment against it. "We should
have supported General Vifquain's
proposition now, were it not for the
fact that we consider it visionary as
well as utterly Impracticable.
As might have been expected, the
House refused to concur in theSenate
amendments to the new currency
bill, and consequently that measure
has been put into the hands of a
conference committee for readjust
ment. If that committee adopts
the course pursued with tho bank
ruptcy bill we may not hear from
it again before the Forty-third Con
gress passes in its checks.
Colorado does not propose to be
very far behind New Mexico in the

admission next Monday, and a very

bill through under a suspension of
the rules. "Wc apprehend, however,
that tho opposition will be belter
prepared to counteract theso tactics.

An Excursion from Aurora and
Piano, Illinois to Fairmount,
On the Wing, May 27, '74.
Your correspondent took a scat
at Omaha in one of the B. & M.
coaches in Nebraska, and as the
train was moving out of the city at
a lively speed, was informed by that
gentlemanly conductor, Mr. Le
Borvean, that there was an excur
sion party to meet his train at La
Platto from Aurora and Piano, Illi
nois. The train was not long In
reaching that station, when on ar
rival we found three coaches and
one bajrgage car crowded to their
utmost extent with passengers, bag
gage, etc. It required only a few
moments for our energetic conductor
to switch the cars on his train, and
was soon Westward bound at a live
ly speed. The train had five coaches
and two baggage and express cars.
As soon as the train was in motion
Ben, as every one calls him, had an
opportunity to try his skill in punch
ing tickets. The cars were so
crowded It was difficult to get
through the train, but he made a
successful effort, which he soon ac
complished, and received many
compliments from the passengers
for the gentlemanly manner in
which he performed his service. He
is a good conductor and a valuable
man to the B. & M. in Nebraska,
and has made many friends since
lie has been connected with the
The partj' was composed of 150
passengers, who were ministeis,
editors, reporters, doctors, lawyers,
merchants and business men gen
erally, their wives, sisters and
sweethearts, who were on a short
tour of West to seo the country and
on a pleasure Irip,
The enterprise was gotten up by
Rev. F. Curtis, pastor ot the M. E.
Church, and his brother, H. Curtis,
of the land department of the C. B.
& Q. R. R., of Piano, Illinois. Tho
cars were chartered, one at Auro a
and one at Piano, and each passen
ger paid $10.00 for the round trip,
which was a saving enterprise in
the expense, and tho amount re
alized after paying for the cars was
to be given to the church. While
the train was gliding rapidly over
the prairie all was merriment and
glee within ; some wanted to stop
the train and pitch their tents, as
they imagined they had found the
most beautiful country ever before
seen ; sonip wished to go farther
west; manyremarksweremade, and
Nebraska was considered the most
beautiful country ever beheld. There
could not have been a better time
selected for a tour west than the
present, as now the prairies are dec
orated with their Ijeautiful foliage,
and all that would attract the eye of
admiration, in thescenery of land,
capes with beautiful farms, well im
proved aud comfortable surround
ings, we will expect at least a por
tion of that party to locate In Ne
braska, and if so, we may well be
proud of our acession.
The B. fc M. in Nebraska, has
plenty of just such land, as was
passed over to-day, which is now in
the market at very reasonable
prices, and the chance for that party
is open to them to pitch their tents,
and trust the' will at an early day.
the party will- remain west until
Friday morning June 5th, when
thej' will take the train at Fairmont
for their homes.
While west they will spend their
time In rusticating through the
country and exploring the country
around and near Fairmont
Many compliments were exten
ded to the conductors and all con
nected with the road for the atten
tion and favors shown the party,
and it is to be hoped tnat when they
return to their homes they will give
a good report of Nebraska, and
thereby be a valuable accession to
our young State, Add.
