THE Missouri Pacific , 10 Wabash
and the Iron Mountain railroads hare
nearly half a million of stock in a
barge line on the lower Mississippi
river , and every effort is being made
to make the river a sure means
of exportation of grain to the sea
board and to Europe during all sea
sons of the year. To insure the latter
result , a very largo elevator is being
constructed on the river bank at Belmont -
mont , the southern ierminus of a
branch of the Iron Mountain road , be
low which there is rarely any obatroo
tlon from * ice. During the pait two
weeks over half a million bushels of
corn have been sent via the Iron
Mountain road to Belmout and
pnt on barges there for New Or
leans. The barge line before the
resumption of navigation in the
spring will have transporting facilities
of 2,000,000 bushels of bulk grain
per month fully abreast of the grow

THE new justice of the supreme
court , Hon. W. B. Woods , for the
past fourteen years has been a resi
dent of the south and jndgo of the
Fifth judicial district hi
, a circuit cui
br&oing the states of Georgia , Ala
bama and Louisiana. Judge Woods
was born hi Newark , Ohio , was grad
uated from Tale college , and repre
sented Licking county In the legisla
ture , of which in 1858 ho was chosen
epeakar. In 18G1 he enlisted , and
was chosen lieutenant colonel of tlie
Seventy-Birth regiment , Ohio volun
teers. He afterwards became its
colonel , and commanded it in some of
the more important battles of the
war. At the time of Lee's surrender
be w&s a major general of volunteers.
When it was supposed that his nomi
nation to the supreme court would be
oppued bcciusoof his Ohio birth , the
southern bar almost
memorialized the senate in favor of
his confirmation. None but an hnneit
and able man could have won such dis
tinction. Judge Wood is represented
to be a gentleman of fine presence ,
potseuei of great native dignity , and
the dispenser of an elegant hospitality
at his Atlanta home.
THE Chicago 'limit refers to the
proposed appropriation of § 1,800.000
for the improvement of the Missis
sippi , s "A project to sink a vast
amount "of wealth , drawn from the
earnings of the country , in improving
the cavigition of a stream which com
merce , without regard to its condi
tion of navigability , is steadily
abandoning. " Where , let n ask tha
Ttmei , is the greatest portion of the
earnings of the country sunk ? In
the pockets of the railway robbers ,
who are incressng their gains solely
to their own advantage and to the
detriment of the producing classes.
Tha improvement of our navigable n
, little iutereit to
eastern railroad capitalists , is a ques
tion of vital importance to the pro
ducing classes of the west. Our In of
land waters are being abandoned ,
Bolely becausa of the delays and dan
gers of freight transportation , result
ing from their unimproved condition. S
Hell Gate , in New York harbor , was 2
flimilidy abandoned by crafts of large er
BIZ ) for alike reason , but since Hal
lott's reef has baeti removed , naviga .
tiou through Loig Island aouud i
has nearly doubled. The organization
of barge lines on the Mississippi and _ ,
Missouri , in which capitalists ara in
vestbg their moans , does not bear ont seth
the assertions of the Times as to the the
abindonment of the river route , and On
its failure to con pet 3 with the lines Ume
of transportation : by rail. If congress Otoe.
will give to our inland water routes gre l
the consideration which they so well only

TEE meeting of the citizens of the
Sixth ward to discuss the advisability
of increasing the wards ot our city ,
calls attenticn to a pressing need
which is Troll worthy the coniidera-
ionof our legislative delegation. At
the last election nearly four hundred
citizens were practically disenfran
chised through inadequate provisions
! or receiving their votes. In the
Sixt h ward 1,300 Toters were on the
registry lists , and 200 failed to de
posit their rotes before the poll
closed , although the greater portion
were on the ground ready to exercise
the elective franchise. In tha Second
ward 1.070 rotea were polled at the
het election and a largo
number of votes were crowded
out at the close of the polls.
There are two remedies for this state
of affiirs. One Is the increase of the |
wards of the city , carrying with it an
increr.sa in the size of the council and
the number of polling places. This
remedy lies within the power of the
legislature alone. By the statutes of
Nebraska it will bo necessary to pro
care an act of the legislature before a
new ward is cut off from any of the
others. The other remedy lies in the
power of the municipality and county
through additions to the number of
palling precincts , leaving the present
number of wards intact. Our city
charter provides that when any ward
has more than 800 voters within its
limits , it may be divided into election
precincts. Now the First , Second
and Sixth wards fall under this pre
vision , & 11 , at the late election , having
cm more than 500 vote * , while the
Third and Fourth wards together csct
scarcely more than 00 voles or about
400 each. Should it bo deemed inad
visable to increase tha number of
wards in the city , provision should at
once bo made for additional polling
places in these three ward ? , in order
that our working men whoso houra of
labor only end a short- time before
the the closing of the polls , may not
suffer disenfranchisement as they did
at the November election.
Should it bo deemed advisable to
add to the number of wards in the
city , we see no reason why the First
and Second wards , as well .as the Sixth
should not al o be divided. Together
they poll nearly 2,000 votes , and are
gaining in population more rapidly
than any other section of the city.
Thi * creation of a new ward , WithPaci-
fic street as its northern bounda
ry , would greatly relieve this portion
of the city and give it a representation
in the council , which it now fails to

The great question at this time is
how the state senate willbe organized ?
Will Lieut. Governor Carna ba a * le to
keep the appointment of committees
in his own hands and thus turn the
state over to the railroads ? or will ho
have to step to one side aud see the
senate name their own committees. If
Carna appolnts the senate committees ,
Governor Nance will have gained ten
points in the senatorial race , and it is
therefore fair to presume that Nance
will favor the schema to allow Carns
to appoint the commitecs.

It is over nine years since I first
