Acconmxa io the Sioux City
Journal active hostilities are im
pending between the Rees and
Sioux Indians. The former recent
ly raided the Sioux camp below the
Cheyenne Agency, capturing some
thirty horses and mules. Almost
simultaneously with this raid a war
party of Sioux started for the camp
of the Rees, and a lively mill is an
ticipated. Fnosr the New York Herald of
the Cth, we glean that the Congress
of European powers which is to
meet at Brussels on the loth of July,
will consider the subject of interna
tional law during tho time of war.
There is no question of greater im
portance, and if it can be satis
factorily settled the Great .Powers
will save the expense and annoy
ance of joint high commissions, and
be able to shake hands instead of
doubling up their fists at each other.
OUR Democratic contemporary
asserts that all the Germans and a
large proportion of Americans would
never tolerate the admission of col
ored children into public schools
where white children are taught.
How alout Omaha? Our colored
schools "were abolished two years
ago under the new school law.
Will tho Herald name any Ger
man or American citizen of Omaha
whose children were withdrawn
from our public schools on account
of this change? Have any of the
arlstocratio youths who attend the
Omaha nigh School abandoned that
institution when young Curry was
placed on an equal footing with
The campaign of 1S74 may
now bo considered as virtually
opened. The first gun was fired by
Brigadier General Welch from his
Wcsl Point howitzer. The General
boldly t enters the lists and throws
down the gauntlet to his competi
tors. Having no special pets of its own
the Bee proposes to afford all the
combatants a fair opportunity to lay
their claims before the people, re
serving to itself tho prerogative to
cricisoor commend. Gen. Welch
deserves some credit for starting out
early, and thus exposing himself to
the masked batteries of invisible
enemies. We prefer not to discuss
the merits of his claims until we
shall know something more about
those of his competitors.
Contrary to the ominous predic
tions of leading eastern papers, the
biil forthe admission of Colorado
pawed "the lower House of Congress
by altnastrlho same majority that
was given there two weeks ago to
the bill admitting New Mexico.
And now these twin sisters wili
have to pass through tho ordeal
in tho Senate.
From all Indications that body is
not disposed to look very favorably
upoii tbe admission of new States,
especially when their population is
belMT the minimum number of
congressional representation. The
adraissieB of these territories would
merely transform the two delegates
in the House to full-fledged mem
bership, but in the Senate the four
Senators of Colorado and New
Mexico would equal in voting
power the four Senators from New
York and Pennsylvania.
True, Nevada and Nebraska wero
awimitledyithout. the requisite
population, but their admission was
mainly due to a desire On tlie part
of the Bepublicans, to secure the
adoption- of the Thirteenth and
Fourteen fk amendments to the con
stitution. l3och pressure does not
exist now, -awl even if the Republi
can party was positively certain of
electing four additional Senators,
they could have no assurance that

Xies, As exceedingly doubtful.
WHAT WE IEAWT TOOK THE CHTSTJS
We take pleasure in laying before
the public the census xeturns of Ne
braska for 1874. Although the Bee
ana other journals have from time
to time published the scattering re
turns of various counties, this is the
first official publication of the re
turns for the entire State over the
certificate of the Secretary of State.
While the census of 1874 is neces
ssarily imperfect in many respects,
it furnishes many valuable lessons
for our guidance. First and fore
most, we are by it placed in posses
sion of the relative growth of the
various sections of the State; it
enables us to arrive at a more intel
ligent and accurate conception of
the tidal wave of population to
Central and Western Nebraska.
In the second place it will most
effectually dispel all the specula
tions about contingent Congress
men. Ourtotal population aspercen
sus, is 222,392. Seven counties, Daw
son, Phelps, Chase, Dundy, Hitch
cock, Kountz, and Holt, have not re
ported. Estimating their population
at 2,500, the total population of Ne
braska could not exceed 225,000.
Now if we add 25,000 to this figure
for the immigration of the present
spring and summer, we reach a
grand total of 250,000. The basis of
congressional representation is
a fraction over 134,000 in
habitants for each Congressman.
It would, therefore, lake a popula
tion of at least 209,000 in order to
entitle Nebraska to a second mem
ber. While we shall, doubtless,
reach these figures in 1875, it
would be very difficult to induce
Congress to give Nebraska an addi
tional representative in the Forty
Fourth Congress. And now let us
examine some of the peculiar fea
tures of the census: Douglas still
remains the leading county in the
State, hut her population is now
only one-tenth of the entire
population of the State, while in
1870 she contained one-sixth.
Douglas and the five river counties
below Douglas, namely: Sarpy,
Cass, Otoe, Nemaha and Richard
son, contain 71,813 inhabitants, or
just one-third of the entire State
population, while all the river
counties from Kansas to the Dakota
line contain a population of 89,734.
The adjoining tier, namely:
Wayne, Cuming, Dodge, Saunders,
Lancaster, Johnson and Pawnee,
contain 43,555 inhabitans, or nearly
one-fifth of the State population.
These counties combined with the
river counties contain 133,2SG In
habitants, or over five-eights of tho
total State population.
The Central tier of connties.Gago,
Saline, Seward, Butler, Colfax,
Platte, Antelopo,Stanton and Pierce
contain 34,941 inhabitants, or some
thing over one-seventh of the pop
ulation. All the other counties west
of this tier contain 54.161 people, or
something less than one-fourth of
the population. The Central tier
and the entire west combined, mus
ter 89,0C1, or 073 inhabitants less
than tho twelve river counties.
Now let us look at tho old division
north and south of the Platte, and
wefind that thecounties north of the
Platte contain 81,724 inhabitants,
or but very little more than one
third which would seems to Indi
cate that immigration in the past
three years has been directed main
ly to the country south of the Platte.
Whether the South can maintain
tliis unequal preponderance remains
however to be seen. The division
of the State into North and South
Platte, is rapidly being oblitera
ted by railroads and bridges. The
old antagonism between these sec
tions is gradually being supplanted
by a sectional division East and

THE CAMPAIGN OPENED.
Brigadier General Welch Takes
fWet Point Ecpubltcan, June C
Now that the time is fast ap
proaching when a Republican con
vention will be called for the pur
pose of nominating a member of
Congress, a Governor, and other
State officers, it is proper for the
people and the press to look about
them and fix upon good, competent
and worthy men for the several im
There seems to be a studied silence
on tho part of the Republican State
press in regard to the matter, the
policy apparently being to let events
shape themselves, or in other words
to allow the nominations to be made
on the spur of the moment when
the convention shall have assem
bled. In our opinion this is
all wrong. The man whom the
next Republican Convention nomi
nate, will, in all probability, preside
over the State the two years follow
ing; hort- important, then, that the
best and ablest men in the Republi
can party be placed m nomination.
If the people and the press sit with
folded hands, making no sugges
tions, expressing no choice, and
avoid discussing tho merits and de
merits of the respective aspirants
for the various positions until the
very daj of the Convention, can the
delegates act understandlngry, and
Intelligibly? It appears to us that
We suggest that the republican
press of this State, after having con
sulted with the intelligent republi
cans of their county or district, and
learned their choice of candidates
for any of the offices, to give their
names to the public, that their abil
ity, integrity and elligibility to offi
ces hi connection with which they
are named, may be thoroughly dis
cussed and acted upon in a manner
consistent with investigation. Don't
wait for instructions from any par
particular clique or ring, nor fear
that your action may be by them
condemned, but speak out fearless
ly, -that the interests of the republi
can party and the State of Nebras
ka may be subserved, by having
competent and worthy men nomi
nated and elected.
We believe it a bad policy to
preach and not practice the sent!
ment of the sermon, hence we will
demonstrate that we are ia earnest
and believe our suggestions correct,
by adopting the course which we
counsel our brother editors to pur
sue. We nominate subject to the ac
tion of the Republican. State Con
vention Hon. Frank Welch, of
Norfolk, for the candidate for Gov
ernor on the Republican ticket at I
the coming election. We nominate
him not only as our own individual
choice, but as the choice of hundreds
of people in Northern and Western
Nebraska, believing him to be a
man eminently fitted for the high
and important office for which we
hqpe named him; a man of requi
site ability, of unimpeachable honor,
ami great firmness of character.
Mr. Welch has been a resident of
Nebraska for seventeen or eighteen
year, during which time he has
leen thoroughlj- and unmistakably
identified with the Republican
party, and with the progress and
development of the State. His
acquaintance with the citizens of
Nebraska is extensive, and so well
is he known that it is unnecessary
for us, at this time, to speak at
length of his abilities, or give a
history of his life in Nebraska.
And now that we have opened
the "ball," we trust the press will
thoroughly dissect our candidate,
and if there is aught In his past pub
lic or private life that disqualifies
him, or makes it impolitic to nomi
nate him, now is the time to make
it known. We trust, also, that oth
er candidates thought of may be
brought forward, and their merits
and demerits also discussed, that
the Republicans of Nebraska may
decide advisedly who they desire
to place In nomination as a
candidate for the gubernatorial

The Effect of Pro-xatum.
lHJnTer News, June -Ith.
It Fecms to he tolerably certain
that the hills compelling the Pacific
roads to pro-rate, will hecome laws.
The effect that this legislation will
have upon Colorado railway inter
ests, is worthy of a moment's con
sideration. The law not only opens
the Union Pacific to the Kansas
and Denver Pacific, hut also opens
the Denver Pacific to the
Union Pacific in reality com
pelling by law tho pro
position which the Kansas Pacific
has for years been offering to the
Union Pacific. Under the new law
the present prohibitory tariff on the
Denver Pacific will give way to a
pro-rata ; and such being the case,
it becomes an interesting inquiry as
to whether the Union Pacific will
complete tae Julesburg branch of
the Colorado Central. Their
principal motive in constructing
this road was to secure the Colorado
trade, will they do so now in view
of the fact, that they are bound to
receive a living rate on the Denver
Paeiiic? It is well known that the
Colorado Central is a creature of the
"Ilo&ton interest" in the Union Pa
cific, which party just now is under
a cloud, Mr. Dillon being of the
New York party. If, under the pro
posed law, the Kansas and Union
Pacific companies came to agree
ment, it is not improbable that the
Colorado Central rails may never
extend further than Evans or Gree
ley. In this event, the great Platte
valley would be left open far the
Burlington & Missouri company
which has its eyes fixed longingly
on Denver and Colorado.
The State Fair to be held in Oma
ha .should be made a matter of in.
terest to every citizen of our oounty.
The success of these expositions, of
course depends upon the manner'ln
which we view tho important sub
ject. The mere item of gaining a
prize is only of minor importance,
us the subject should be looked upon
as one, mat it riguuy conducted
will faithfully represent our
productions, in fact will Uo
the state in miniature. Burt should
be represented by all means, and
our citizens should prepare for the
occasion, as by proper representa
tion we shall advertise the resources
of our eounty as it can be done in
uo other wa3. But this should not
be the sole object; tho State fair
should receive encouragement from
all, for the reason that for tho first
time in our history as a State has
an effort been made toward
consolidating our mutual interests
or bringing about anything like a.
a fraternal feeling between the pre
Yiously divided sections, We hail
with pleasure this as A prelude to
better things still In store for us.
Let us work unitedly for so worthy
an object, throw selfishness to the
does, and ourjealousiestothe winds
and unitedly determine on the sues
cess of our State exposition. ur-
