THE Laramie Independent $ s wa
ging savage , and , as far as we can
learn , unjust warfare upon the Pos
tal clerks and route agents on the
line of the Union Pacific. In Justice
to these postal employes , we must
, say , that so far as our own experi
ence goes , the postal-car mall ser
vice on the Union Pacific is unex
ceptionable. The BEE circulates
more papers over the Union Pacific
than all the other journals west of
the Missouri river combined , and
we have not heard a aingle com
plaint from tnat route during the
past four mouths We are con
vinced that the recent irregularities ,
It any have occurred , are chiefly to
be ascribed to the irregularities over
the Iowa roads and east of Chicago.
If any delinquencies have occurred
" west of Laramie , they cannot be
jtraced to the postal cars , but may
occasionally occur in the distribu
tion office at Salt Lake.
HON. JOHN BAUMER authorizes
us to contradict the charges of the
" .Lincoln JburnoZ and Omaha Repub
lican , touching his conduct In con
nection with the "license bill. "
Mr. Baumer assures us that the
engrossed bill was put in his hands
by one of the engrossing clerks ,
( Mrs. Pattee. ) After examining it ,
he placed it upon the deak of the
chairman of the enrolling commit
tee , Mr. Murphy , a few minutes
before his departure for Omaha.
Having no time to spare , he did not
eeo the chairman , supposing that
the bill would be safe and properly
presented for enrollment. The state
ment that ho eluded the sergeant-
at-arms la unfounded , and the ani
mus of the Journal can readily be
explained from the fact thai Mr.
Baumer sought to defeat their $8,000
printing fraud by moving lor' its re-
CHEYENNE complains bitterly of
what the Cheyenne Leader terms
-the xnarked hostility of the Union
Pacific toward the Wyomlng-caplt-
al. The chief ground of complaint
appears to be the failure of the
Union Pacific to comply with sol
emn promises and stipulated agree
ments , by which citizens of Chey
enne were induced to invest in real
estate at extravagant prices , gen
eral Dodge and Oliver Ames had
held out inducements to them to
purchase expensive corner lots by
promising to erect extensive
machine shops , depots and other
buildings at Cheyenne , which have
not only never been built , but are
not likely ever to be erected there.
According to the ieatfer , the com
pany has not offered to do anything
beneficial that would , 111 a measure ,
make up for its negligence and fail
ure to live up to Its agreements.
Under these- circumstances It was
but natural that the leading proper
ty owners of Cheyenne , -who , for
the most part , are also the leading
merchants , should bear _ a grudge
against the Union Pacific , which
manifests itself at every opportuni
ty. Thus , much of-tho traffic which
should flow over the maiu line
of the U. P. via Omaha has been
diverted , and Cheyenne merchants
have been , so to speak , forced to pat
ronize the Kansas Pacific. This di
version of the commerce of Wyom
ing from its natural channel , ia to
be deplored not only for the sake of
the Union Pacific , but also for the
sake of Omaha. The mercantile in
terests of Omaha are lu a great
measure identified with the mercan
tile Interests of.Cheycn e , and
Whatever tends to cripple Cheyenne
must Indirectly cripple Omaha. It
is ; therefore , to be hoped that the
managers of the Union Pacific vill ,
both lu the interest of the great
railway and in the interest of Oma
ha , adopt such'a policy as will in a
measure rectify the grievances of
the citizens of Cheyenne , andrecon-
ftlie them fo thtr situation.

THE CUHSTITUlIOHAij COHVEHTION.
On the first Tuesday in April the
citizens of Nebraska are to choose
sixtj'-nine members to the conven
tion which is to frame a new funda
mental law for this State. In view
of the important task devolving
upon this body the time for discus
sing the qualifications and merits ol
proposed candidates is comparative
ly short. It is hardly necessary foi
us lo impress upon the minds ol
the people of this commonwealth
that the men selected for this
convention should rank high foi
their intelligence and probity. Thej
should be men less noted for ex
treme partizanship or sectionalisn :
than for their patriotism and devo
tion to principle. The Cramers o
a now constitution should be mer
with whom the interests of politica
parties cr political factions should b <
secondary to the interests of th <
people. They should be men will
whom the interests of sections o
localities should be secondarjMo thi
interests of the whole .State.
The new constitution is not lo b <
framed for the perpetuation of thi
Kepublican party , the Democratii
party , arany other political organ
ization. It is not to be an instru
ment made for the benefit of Soutl
Plalte , JSTortn Platte , or tlie territory
west of the 6th Principal Meridian
Members of the convention are no
expected to act as champions of th <
county or district from whlck thei
are elected , but they are expected tc
give us a fundamental law that wil
equitably apply to all parts o
the State not only during
the next decade , but through the
generations that will inhabit Ne
braska , in the distant future. The
Constitution of the United States
has been -fundamental law ol
the nation for nearly a century , and
there is no reason why the new
constitution of Nebraska , with pro
per provifaions for future amend
ments , should not outlive ten gen
erations. With this view of the case
before usve cannot impress upon
the minds of the people too strong
ly the absolute necessity of selecting
the very best men for the conven
tion. .Let the convention of ' 75. al
least be equal in make-up and abil
ity to the convention of ' 71-
Do not , if you value the reputa
tion of this State , send politica ]
demagogues , briefless shysters , and
brainless "do-nothings" to repre-

have earned a reputation in
their own calling ; men
who have gamed undisputed
eminence as farmers , mechanics ,
lawyers or doctors , Judges or soldiers.
Let us have sound thinkers , and not
blatant bunglers. Let us have men
of broad and liberal views , and not
men whose contracted ancF-cranky
ideas would seek to convert the con
stitution into an embodiment of im
practical notions and "isms. " Let
us have men who will do more
thinking than talking , and above
all things do not send men to this
convention who will set there like

A Monopoly in a Tigh * Placp.
lan Francisco Chronicle. ]
There are some indications which
seem to * foreshadow that the reign
of the Western Union Telegraph
despotism is about over. A rival
company has announced such re
duction in the cost of telegraphing
between .Kew York and \Vashing-
ton , Albany , Boston and intermedi
ate points , as will seem inexplicable
to the business community. The
reductions indicate tLat the
charges of the "Western Union
Company" simply extortionate
and monstrous. But it is
asserted that the superior mode of
transmission by means of the auto
matic systemrcombined with du
plex and quadruplex instruments , of
which the Atlantic & Pccilic have
the .exclusive use , warrant the re
duction which has been announced.
Meantime , while the contest be
tween the old monopoly and the
aew organization is going on , the
general public may ruminate with
jomplacenoy upon the admirable
ind time-honored ' . "
