INCREASING TIIE DISTRICTS.
The demand for an Increasein the
number of judicial districts is especi
ally strong In Douglas county , where
the district court is two years behind
In its business , with no hope of relief ,
except from action of the legislature at
the present session. Under the exist
ing law the Third judicial district com
prises the counties of Sarpy , Douglas ,
Washington and Burt. Two-thlrds of
the cases in the district arlso in Doug
las county , while loss than half
the tlmo of the judge can bo dovotcd
to their consideration. In consequence
quence the docket Is constantly In-
croaning in slzo until at the present
time a case filed to-day in Omaha can
scarcely bo reached for at least
oighhtocn months to como. It IB evi
dent that relief Is nccorsary in the in
terests both of suitors aud of the judge.
Section 11 cf the constitution roads
as folio we :
"Tho legislature whenever two-
thirds of the members elected to each
house shall concur therein , may in or
after the year ono thousand eight hun
dred and eighty , and not oftener than
once in every four years , increase the

It is evident from the reading ol the
section that the number of judges iu
district may bo increased by legisla
tive enactment whenever in the opin
ion of two-thirds of the members of
the legislature such iricroaso is
necessary , and that the number of
districts may also bo Increased at their
discretion , under the restrictions of
The adoption of the first of these
plans would perhaps solve the prob
lem In the Third judicial district.
With two jadgcs there would bo no
necessity for dividing the district and
the dockets in the four courts could
soon bo cleared. Ono judge would , bo
morn than sufficient for the
needs of Sarpy , 'Washington and
Bnrt counties , while the growing re
qniremonts of Douglas county will
soon demand moro than the presence
and attention of a single judge.
During a portion of the , year both
judges could Bit at Omaha , dividing
the work of the session between them
and rapidly disposing of the cases on
the docket and the motions which
might bn brought before them.
This plan has commended itself tea
a number of our loading lawyers , and
la well worth the thoughtful consider
ation of the legislature. If there are
any doubts that it will conflict with
the requirements of the constitution ,
the opinion of the supreme court might
bo requested as its feasibility. If
adopted , it will obviate the necessity
of rodlstrioting the Third district for
some years to come , and will afford
relief to the overburdened docket
much moro rapjdly than if the district
All that will bo required is an act
of the legislature authorizing the elec
tion of two judges at the election
which takes place next fall , when a
successor to Judge Neville is to be
chosen. The subject Is well worth

CHANGING THE SESSIONS OF
Congress haa now before it two or
three bills which propose changcn both
In the torma of congressmen and in
the timu of ocsaioni. The present ar
rangement of sessions haa often been
crltiched. It wou originally duo to
the recommendation cf the constitu
tional convention that the old congrost
as soon as nine states had ratified the
constitution , should fix a date for the
choice of electors and congressmen ,
aud one for the choice of president bj
the electors , the congresamon bcinf
notified to assemble at the same time ,
and that as soon aa the proalden
should have taken the oath , "tho con
gross , together , with the president
should , without delay , proceed to ei
ocuto this constitution. "
The day fixed for this ceremony wa
the 4th of March , 1780. The term c
the first congroes , therefore
began on that day , and th
terra of each successive cot
congress has begun on the 4th c
March cf each second year since
Inasmuch as the constitution provide
that the term of the president sha
bo for four years , It is impracticabli
without amending the constitution , t
fix another date for the beginning i
hit , term ; but It Is hold that anotht
date may bo fixed for the beginning <
the term of members of the houeo <
representatives if it does not cocflli
with the constitutional otipul&tla
that they shall bo elected every se <
In any change , two objects woul
in have to bo kept It view. Ono Is <
no avoid a mooting of the old cougre
ad after a now ono ia elected. The to
ho oud Is to secure such an arrangcinoi
of the Boseious in wlll'glvo coiigro
inora time to work. The busintts <
cd the country now requires mo to tin
LV- for its consideration than ia givuu u
ho dor the existing lawa.
is , Mr. Blanchard , of North Oarolin
to haa introduced n bill to meet bo
those requirements. It provides that t !
ho Forty-ninth congress , which rill 1
: oa choion in November , 1881 , ahall t
08. gin Its first regular session on the 0
Oil of March , 1885 , Instead of tbe fii
rill Monday in December , 1885 , that
he on the day after the Inauguration
It. the president , and that no sitting
that congress shall begin on the first
Monday of December ; that the second
end regular session of that congreea
shall begin on the first Monday in
January , 1880 , and that the "torm"
of that congress shall end t t noon on
the first dny of December , 1880 , at
which tlmo the term of the Fiftieth
congress , elected in November preceding -
ceding , shall begin , to continuo for
two ycart ; and that thereafter , until
otherwise provided by law , the term
of each congress shall begin on the
first day of December , and the annual
sittings shall begin on the first Mon
day of December.
This scheme is highly commended
by a number of eastern papers , and
notably by the Boston Advertiser ,
which thinks that the arrangement
proposed would accomplish the two
purposes spoken of. The new congress
would moot soon after its election ,
and the now determination of the
people regarding the conduct of the
government's affairs would at once
begin to bo effective. Further , no
session of congress would bo prema
turely cut off , Each session would be
a long session , aa long aa necessary
even if it ran through the year , An
other thing that would result from
such an arrangement la that the pro
ceedings cf congrcsa aiTtotlng the
choice of president , whether simply
the counting of the electoral vote , or ,
iu case of no election by the people ,
the choice of a president by
the house of representatives , would
bo In the hands of a congress newly
elected , chosen by the people at the
same time that the president was
Voted for , and , therefore , moro likely
to bo of the same sentiment with the
majority. It ia not pleasant to think
that it may bo In the power of a congress -
gross controlled by a party the people
have repudiated to make the candidate
of ita party president for four years
ensuing. In case a powerful third
party should arlso before the next
election defeating a choice by the
electoral college , the next president
will bo chosen by the democratic congress -
gross oleotod last autumn , although
the congress olcctod iu 1884 may bo
republican. If the now congress be
gun its term and aesslon In December
following the election , anch a thing
oonld not happen.
Of course the term of ono congresr ,
the forty-ninth , would bo shortened
three months , ending on the 1st of
December instead c f the 4kh of March ,
put aa the bill provides for two ses
sions of that congress , and the session
of the next congress is to begin at
once , no harm would bo done. Prob
ably the country would not object to
their voting themselves the pay of a
full torm. Although there is no prob
ability of the passage of this or any
bill on the subject at this session , the
matter la ono of increasing urgency ,
and It la not iirprobablo that a chanpo
will be made some tlmo.

TUB supreme court haa recently
given three decisions affecting thi
rights of atatea which settle the fol
lowing questions. The first aflirm
the exclusive jurisdiction of the state
over the civil rights of citizens. Th
second affirms the constitutionality estate
state laws prohibiting and runkln
criminal the intermarriage of white
and blacks. The third denies th
power of'any state to abrogate or i
° any way impair the right of coloic
3 citizens to sit on juries on account e
their color. None of these opiuioi
are in the line of a contralizitio
which Horatio Seymour recemly dc
