er r capacity they may be employed.
5th That while we recognize and appreciate
the adrantages derived by the people from a
wall-regulated system of railways we demand
that these public highways thould be rendered
subsarrient to the public good. That while we
disavow any hostility toward railroad corpora
tions we proclaim our d torminstion to resist

never to be violated.
the so-called Quaker Indian

to the Indians or protection to the frontl r set

13th , That we approve the acts of Congress
which put the righU of all citizens under pro
tection of the National authorities when they

SKNATon MORTON'S speech on the
2ew Orleans revolt presents a very
lusid and logical view of the situa
tion in Louisiana. "We are told , "
says the distinguished Senator/'that
reconstruction is a failure ; that
the recent disturbances by tbo
White Leagues are evidence that it
was based upon false principles. I
dissent from this statement. So far
as reconstruction has failed , it has
been by the condnct of its enemies ,
not because of tbe intrinsic defects
of tbe system The resistance of

adoes does not prove it unround , anyy

AIT EXTEfl. SESSION.
Ax extra session of the legislatun
immediately after the October elec
tion is again urged by some of ou :
Western contemporaries , with i
view of hastening tbe enactment o
a new constitution.
It Is claimed by the advocates o
this ill-conceived scheme that Gov
ernor Furnas is pledged to issue tb.ii
call. While the BEE now , as aver
advocates the adoption of a now
Constitution at the earliest prac
tical time , we claim thai
tbe proposition to call a Constitu
tional Convention through the pres
ent legislature is impractical and
unadvisable. Without entering intc
calculations as to the probable ex
pense to tbe people of an extra ses
sion , wo doubt exceedingly that the
present legislature could , if con
vened , agree upon any Constitu
tional convention bill. Assuming ;
however , that they could or would
be able to pass such a bill we
would ask what if anything can be
gained by it ?
Nobody pretends that the prosenl
Legislature can , by calling a Con
stitutional Convention , change tbe
ajaportionment of members for the
Legislature that convenes next win
ter. Nobody expects any Legislature
that may be elected under tbe pro
posed new constitution to bo in ses
sion bctore November or December ,
1873. Everybody knows that it
will be the duty of the Legislature
elected in October next to pass a
Constitutional Convention bill.
The convention thus called , can ,
and will be in session by or before
April loth , and the Instrument
framed by them , can and will be
submitted for popular endorsement
no or beforeJ uly 1st.
Now would it not be prepos
terous to force a Constitutional Con
vention into session in January and
February , when everybody knows
they would inevetably be brought
into conflict with the legislature.
Would it bo good policy
to create confusion and dis
cord at the State Capitol
by tbe assembling of two distinct
bodies , each of which would demand
the constant attention of State offi
cers. Which of these two masters
would be entitled to precedence ?
Suppose tbo legislature should
order certain important finan
cial statistics from the Audi
tor and Treasurer , and the
convention should demand other
official statements from these officers
at about tbe same time. Which of
these orders should bo served
first ? Tbe fact is the advocates of
this spontaneous constitution
scheme- have no conception of tbe
consequences. They are merely
working up political capital.
THE efforts of the old fogies and
anti-progressionists to put a stop
to all public iinprovpments in this
city , are , to say the least , becoming
decidedly aggravating. We know
nothing , and care less , about the
trumped up charges of conspiracy
against Mr. Hansconi and others
who have been instrumental in im
proving St. Mary's avenue. We
own no property in that direction ,
and consequently nobody can charge
us with being actuated by self-inter
est. We have not conversed with
Mr. Hanscom , Mr. Marsh ,
or any other person Inter
ested In St. Mary's avenue or near the
Park. We are nevertheless con
strained co delare that tbe men who
have inaugurated the permanent
improvements in Omaha during
the present season , deserve com
mendation ratber than condemna
tion at the hands of our citizens.
Quito apart from tbe substantial
evidences of progress which these
improvements afford to citizens and
strangers they have resulted in
indirect advantages which can b
best appreciated bv those who ari
acquainted with the condition o
our laboring classes.
By these improvements at leas
3no hundred families in Omab
liave been saved from actual want
ind a largo portion of them woul <
liave been forced to leave tbe city
Sow we do not expect that tbesi
) ld fogies can bo made to compre-
iend tbe advantage of retaining
heso laborers in our midst. The ,
lo not understand that the prosper-
tyof our retail merchants depends
n a great measure upon theprosper-
us condition of our workingmen
Much less can they comprehend
hat in times like these a pcuurioui
nunicipal policy would , by rotaid
ng and dwarfing the growth of thii
Ity , correspondingly reduce the
alue or real estate , and render it
omparativcly worthless. For our

General Roberts as a Soldier
The BeDullican Candidate fci
Attorney General Speaks at
( Kearney Timss , Sept. 19th. )
General George H. Roberts , th <
Republican candidate for Attorney
General , addressed a large and en
tbusiastic meeting at More's Hal
last evening. Tbe scurrilous articl (
publabed in tbo Omaha Herald o
the 17th inst , was demolished bj
the General at a blow. He com
pletely vindicated himself. l\c
one who heard him had any doubl
but that the article referred to wai
based on nothing but the malice ol
Lest some of our readers may nol
have seen tbo article in question ,
aud may not be aware of its con
tents , we will state that the sub
stance of it is , that General Roberts
was dishonorably discharged from
tbe service of tbe United States , for
cowardice , absence without leave ,
disobedience of orders , neglect of
duty , and incompetency. In sup
port of this statement , a pretended
certificate from one A. L. Russell ,
claiming to be Adjutant General of
Pennsylvaniadated October 3 , 1874 ,
was copied into the Herald. The
J/eraWnian should be better posted
tbe next time he manufactures a
certificate against a Union soldier
wfio risked his life in defense of his
country. He appears to haye made
only two mistakes. In the first
place A. L. Russell is not the Adju
tant General of Pennsylvania , and
the date October 3 , 1874 , is a little
premature. Try it again , GeorgeL.
you have made a failure this time.
But tbe General was not satisfied
with showing that this pretended
certificate was a lie on its face.
He paid hisrespects to thciJoacon
in a way that would have edified
that worthy greatly had lie been
present to hear. As it was tbo au
dience laughed and cheered at tbe
picture the QeneraJ drew of the re
nowned Deacon as lie appeared "in
front of the enemy. "
Tbo vivid picture of the Deacon as
a hanger on about the Sutler's
stores , aud tbe history of his exploits
as a cotton speculator , will long be
remembered by tbe citizens of
Kearney. We all know the Deacon
now. That speech has made him
ft man of note Among us.
The facts are that during the absence -
sonco of Ueneral Roburts on a raid
through Tennessee , the Lieutenant
Colonel of his regiment and the Or
derly Sergeant conspired together
aud preferred trumped up charges of
the nature indicated in tbe Herald
article , upon the strength of whicj
an order was issued dismissing him
from the service wjtliQUt ft trial by
a Court Martial or u copy of the
charges ever having been seen by
him. Afterwards upon a full review
of the case by the President of the
United States , the following order
was caused by him to be issued :

plete his record , the officer is honor
ably discharged from the military
service of tbe United States to date ,

Asst. Adjutant General.
The General's speech will have
the effect of making him lots of
friends. It places him squarely be
fore tbe people , and not one present
but that appeared to be in sympathy
with him , and to regard tbe effort
of Dr. Miller as an attempt to
blacken and malign the character
of a bravo soldier , and a talented
and honest man.
.Wehave no doubt but that Gen
eral Roberts will be the next attor
ney general of Nebraska , and that

Wo bad one rebellion winch cost
i million of lives and ten thou

' who had defended
rt'as over every man
fended the south was cursing bis
stupidity for not seeing the end
rrom the beginning. How many
) f that sort understand the Louisi-
ina rebellion now ? A glance at
lie situation will reveal the same
jlindness that preceded tbe war. All
ho papers that oppose tne Republi-
: an party excuse if they do not
lustnin the White Leaguers of New
Jrleans. Tbe politicians follow in
he same track. "The people of
Louisiana have been oppressed and
) lundtred , until forbearance has
leased to be a virtue. " This is the
taplo of their talk and rant. Even
hose who claim to bo Republican in
> rinciple , but Auti-Mouop or inde-
lendont in politics , are no belter.
This shows-the strength and bit-
erness of party spirit. It is a repo-
ition of tbe same fatal , uureason-
ng blunder tbat made the Demo-
racy odious during the war. It islet
lot true that the Louisiana out-
ireak was the result of oppression
nd robbery. It is tbe beginning
f a new rebellion this time
gainst tbe amended Constitution ,
'be whole aspect of affairs in the
iouth proves this. Murder abounds
u every hand , not in Louisiana
nly , but In Texas , Tennessee ,
feorgia , Kentucky and the Caroli-
as. And the victims are not
bite Democrats. They ere inva-
iably white or black Republicans ,
nice-holders , school teachers or
linistcrs. The old master , rebel
loment Is determined to get oon-
ol of the South. To accomplish
lis it is organizing the secret White
leagues , which are being armed
nd drilled. The press plainly
vows tbe purposa in view , and the
tethod of achieving it. , * Says the
Veatville ( Miss. ) JVeu's ;
"The white man's party is the only
ilvation for the State. Show the
3gro his place and make him keep
. If we can't vote him down we
in knock him down , and the re-
dt will be the same. "
