the meeting of the city council las

jSTpurposo of expressing their opinions
iTlho crojm and curb of that atrootnlltho
Members were present. There was
; eod representation of the property on
lower Farnam street by its owners.
jJTho council first took up the regular
order of business. A communication
from the marshal , stating the number o
liquor dealers in the city , was road am
The contract and bond of Timothy Ry

presented to. the council and after some
Animated discussion they were finally ap
The council then went into a commit-
; oo of the whole , with W. Y. Bochcl In
the chair , for the consideration of the
oct which had called thorn together.
, lJU\James Croighton on being called
upon to give his views , rose and stated
that ho proposed to settle this matter in
the board of public works with the city
ongincor and ho had called a mooting of
the boardforthat purpose , but thocityon-
ginoor had thought lit to como before the
city council and make his complaints thai
Iho board wished to have a certain crown
carried out. Ho now thought it be
hooved the city engineer to say what
voy ho wanted to have that crown.
Mr. Andrew Bosowator , the city engi
neer , then made a statement , in the
course of which ho said the question
toorood to bo raised as to whether or not
the board of public works had adopted
iny particular plan for the form of the
intersection of Farnam street , the only
Question agreed upon was the crown of
ho street. Mr. Gallagher , the secretary
f the board of public works , had told
lim that ho did not know that the quos-
lon of thn intersection was settled.
Mr. Gallagher being called for explained
liat ho had mot the city engineer arid
ad discussed the matter , nnd as ho un-
erstood it the only question raised'fat
lie board meeting WAS the depth of the
rown of the street. It was supposed by
lim at the time that the intersection was
o bothc same aatho balance oi the street.
Mr. Rosewater , resuming , said that
raa the only thing settled and if they had
ny other evidence to show that the form
f intersection was settled hpjwanted
ecords produced. Ho then read the
allowing telegrams received from engi-
eers of various largo cities , among which
ere the following : From Capt. Green ,
n charge of the public works at Wash
ington which said , "No cross gutters on
Pennsylvania avenue or any other street
whore s wor facilities are lacking. " From
"t. Lauis , "No , only as a last resort-
fl no other moans to got rid of the
ilus wotor can bo found. Your po-
'ion ' is correct. In no case should the
'ator bo led across the streets at inter
actions where by any possibility it can bo
lisposed of in any outlet or in the corner
if the street. Our practice is the shortest
oute to the sewer in every case. " From
incinnati : " Gutters do not cross street
.ftrsoctions where sewers are laid. "
Detroit : " nutters do not cross
tred\intorsections in Detroit. " From
Ihicag6 : "Gutters do not cross street
jHolpresumod that this -would bo ac-
epted as testimony in favoi of his plan ,
ind ho supposed it would not bp denied
hat the engineers of these cities were
ixperts. The same system is now in use
the cities of London , Paris and in
dearly all the largo towns In the United
jiTho speaker then explained at consider
able length the desirability of this method
of curbing and crowning , which was of
too technical n tiaturn to be of interest to
o general public. lie did not rely up
on hia own knowledge simply in this
patter but ho quoted the authorities
if engineers who had spent
: oars in studying this matter ,
thought that the bonid of publio
vorks , which had only boon in existence
tout two years , had no right to- como in
" ere with the assumption of wisdom
at is greater than that of the engineers
[ of Europe and of the United States. If
o city had an incompetent engineer , ho
[ should bo discharged and another put iu
his placo. What was the actual case
with the board of public works ? Ho
would say that ono of them did not know
land could not name ono-third of the pub
lic works going on in this city , and ho
'efiod them to name one-half of the pub-
are going on.
Mr. Creighton , after eulogizing Mr.
ilosewator , whom ho described as a
young man of ability and industry and
worthy of the position ho hold in this
community , wont on to say that ho was
not going to traduce him now , turned
round and abused in strong terms. Ho
, delivered a somewhat tedious dia-
iortation on curbing and crowning which
ho enlivened by calling on Mr. Barker to
read a remarkable petition which had
been pretty generally signed by the prop
erty owners , but who had done so , it
subsequently transpired , without know
ing Ita contents.
ft ( Mr. Barker followed , and after assort
ing that he had attended all the regular
meetings of the board and many others ,
gave his opinion on the subject.
1 Judge Lytlo aroao and made a few remarks -
marks In which ho said Farnam street
should not bo made subordinate
to the other streets and wanted
to * know wherein the ' difloronco
lay between Mr. Itosowator and Mr.
Mr. llosowater explained that the dif
ference was this , that ho did not pro
pose to carry any gutters straight down
across any streets , but to empty the gutters -
tors at intortectionH.
Mr. Ma * Myor thought that as they
had a city ongincor and ho la competent ,
this . /fatter should bo loft to him. What
tinted was perfect street. He thought
a great disgrace.
Mr. E. Ilosewater then made a few re
ts as an interested party , but took
' "itock in the idea of business men or
property owners giving ndvico to the
fil on questions of this kind.
r. R. Kitchen , C. F. floodraur , Her-
TKouutzo and assistant city engineer
MI also expressed their views gener-
fcoramendinp ; the engineer on his
feed j-ln. The cfwcilnicn ther
presented their Ideas on the question
Mr. Furay said ho had visited every city
of importance in the Union having pavcc
atreota , and ho could not recall ono where
the gutters were catriod acrosa the inter
sections. The committee then arose
The following report was tlran adoptee
by n vote of ton to two , Ford and Hod
field voting in the negative.
"Mr. President , your committee of the
whole who had under consideration the
matter of curb and crown of Farnam
street , after having fully discussed the
matter and hoard the arguments of the
board of public works , the city engineer
and all parties desirous of stating their
views in the matter respectfully recom
mend that the ideas of the city engineer ,
as regards the construction of the gutter
and crown of Farunm street and at the
intersections , bo adopted.W. .

After the transaction of business ol
minor importance , the council adjourned.
THE NEW ENXJINE "HOUSES ,

Flro Department tit South
The now engine house , with whoso
erection Firo.Chiof Butler was author
ized by the city council on last Tuesday
night to proceed , will bo the finest build-
lug of the kind in Omaha. The plan

WASIUNOTO.V , July 2. The president h.-xs
vctoci } the Fitz John Porter bill.
Attorney Guncrnl Browetor Bubinlttcil to
the president to-ilny iu compliance with the
lattcr'rt request , n long mul carefully prepared
opinion upon the bill for tlio restoration of
Fitz John Torter to tlio army , in which ho
expresses the opinion that the bill in
clearly , unconstitutional. Ho B.IJH in part :
"A bill Imposing , or nttomplniR to ini-
pose upon the preaulent a ilutv to appoint n
person designatedtlioroln , \\ithont nny imp-
port in the constitution. It is an Bsuin | > tloii
of implied power which la not based aponuny
expressed power , and clearly _ Invades 'ho con
stitutional rights of the president. Congress
has no right to enact ns n law that which \\ill
bo inetTcctunl.lt cannot onnctrulvisoorcouusvl.
It must make laws that are rules of action ,
not expressions of will , that may or may not
bo followed. If this bill bo an iiijunction.com-
inandlnp the president to appoint , it is an
usurpation , and if it bo only counsel , it in
without the essential element of the law , and
congress can enact nothing but that which is
to have full vigor and effect of law. But
again , the bill is subject to objection upon tbu
ground that congress thereby in effect creates
in office only upon condition that it is tu bo
illed by a particular individual named. If
.his principle were adopted generally in the
creation of officers , it would obviously result
u constraining the appointing power to accept
.he condition imposed , and all their oilicca
yith individuals designated by congress , thus
rustrating their design of the constitution ,
which is that a officer must bo nlono selected
according to thu judgment and will of the liar-
eon and body in whom the powers of nomina-
ions , advice and consent and appointment
are vested. "
WASHINOTON , July 2. The president this
if teruoon returned the Ktz John Vortor bill
iO congress with his objections. Ho take ) the
amo view as the attorney-general regarding
he unconstttutlonality of the bill , and says :
There are other causes that deter mo from
living this bill the sanction of my approval.
Dho judgment of the court martial by which ,
nero than twenty y"oarH since , General 1'itz
fohn Porter was triinl and convicted , wasprx-
lounced by a tribunal composed of nine Ron-
ral ofliceru of distinguished character mid
ability. Its investigatipn'of the charges hen
t found the accused guilty , won thorough and
ousctuntious and its findings and sentence , iu
; ho duo course of law , was approved by Abr.i-
mm Lincoln , president of the United States ,
ts legal competency , its jurisdiction of the
iccused nud of the subjects of the accusation ,
lie subitantial'regularity of all its proceed-
ngs are matters which have cover been
irought in question. Its judgment , therefore ,
s final and conclusive in its character. The
upremo court of the United States has ro-
outly declared that a court martial , such as
his was , is the organism provided by law
md clothed with duty and a minister of jus-
ice in this class of cns s. Its judgment , when
pprovcd , rests on tlio same basis and Bur-
ouudcd by the same considerations
vhich gives conclusivonesa to the judgment
f other tribunals , including ns well the lowest
nd the highest.
It follows accordingly , that when a lawfully
onetituted court-martial has duly declared
; s findings and its sentence , mid has been
uly approved , neither the president nor con-
jress has any power to upset them. The ox-
stcnce of such power is not openly asserted ,
or perhaps is it necessarily implied in the
irovisions of the bill , which is before mo.
Jut when its enacting clauses are read in the
light of the recitals of Its preamble , it will bo
seen that it seeks in effect a practical annul
ment of the findings and sentence of n compe
tent court-martial. A conclusion nt variance
with these findings lias been reached after an
investigation by a board of three * officers
of the army. This board was not created in
pursuance of any statutory authority , and was
powerless to compel the attendance of wit
nesses or to pronounce a judgment which
could bo lawfully enforced. Thu officers who
composed it , in their report to the scciotary of
war , dated .March 19th , 1870 , stats that , in
their opinion , "Justice requires * * nuch
action ns may bo necessary to annul and set
abide the findings and suntonco of the court
martial in the case of Major General Kit/
John Porter , and to restore bim'to the position
of which their sentence deprived him , such re-
btoration to take effect from the date of his
di miHSnl from office.
The provisions of the bill now under consid
eration are avowedly liasod on the assumption
that the findinpH of the court martial have
been discovered to bo erroneous. ISut it will
bo bornu in mind that the investigation which
is claimed to have resulted in thin discovery
was miulo many yours after the oveut to
which these findings related , and under cir-
ctiinst.incc'8 that made it impo mblo toiepro-
duce tbo evidence on which they woralusHtl.
It Hecms to mu that the proposed legitlatiou
wouldestabllHh a dangerous precedent , calcu
lated to imperil In no small measure , the bind
ing force and effect of the judgments of vari
ous tribunals established under our constitu-
iion nnd lawt > .
I have already , in the exorcise of the power
with which the president is vested , remitted
the continuing penalty that niudo it impossible
sible- for I'ltz John Porter to hold an office of
tmst or profit under the government of the
United .States , lint I mn unwilling to jrivn
my Kanction to any legislation which uliall
practically annul and t > ut at naught the
solemn and deliberate conclusions of thu tri
bunal by which ho was convicted , and of the
president by whom its fmdlngu wore examined
and approved , Signed ,

It is odd that while the democrats ot
this coast claiming that their party ia th
Simon-puro anti-monopoly organization
the Bourbon loaders in the cast are do
ng everything in their power to nntng
oiuzo the rnti-monopoly Bontimont. li
Ohio/riiurman. n pronounced nntl-mou
opallst was oholvod and 1'ayno , the chio
of the odloua Standard Oil monopoly
was sent to the United States Sonati
in hio stead and ia spoken of ns on oligi
able candidate for the presidency. Cleveland
land , another favorite candidate vetoed a
bill to reduce the faro on the olovatoc
railroads of Now York city , to five cents
on the grounds that it would not moo
the approval of the monopolists. Ho
declared that his conscience would no !
pormlUhim to approve a mcoauro whicf
would porhnpa cut down the receipts ol
the elevated railroads to such an extent
that they would not bo nblo to earn 10
porcunt on the stock , the amount which
they were entitled by law lo earn.
While ha was so considerate of
the rights of the stockholders ho
totally ignored the fnot that those same
elevated railroad stocks had boon sub *
jectcd to a most extraordinary watering ,
which made 10 per cent on the diluted
stock equal to at least 25 per cent on the
original output. It is dillioult to say how
much Cleveland's consideration for Sam
uel J. Tildou had to do with his position.
That great idol of the democracy was one
of tlio gentlemen engaged in the watering
business , his manipulation of the Metro
politan Elevated railway being about as
discreditable as any of the numerous rail
road wrecking enterprises engineered by
him during hiH extended career. Indeed
a study of the Hat of aspirants for tlio
presidency in tlio democratic party must
prove very discouraging to the radical
anti-monopolist , for very little hope of
reformation is hold out by any of them.
Stephen J. Field , who has boon so heart
ily denounced by the democratic state
convention of O.Uifornmis by comparison
with Tildon , Cleveland , Bayard or Payne
a very trustworthy man.
Turning from individuals , lot us review
the position of the national house of
representatives. Mr. Iloagan , of Texas ,
IMS had before that body , in which the
democrats have a strong working major
ity , an act to regulate commerce Dotwoon
tlio states , lias it boon made a party
measure and put through ? By no moans.
It is so strongly antagonized by demo
crats that it has absolutely no show of
becoming n law. Democratic congress
men are as hopelessly divided on the
luostion as the democratic senators at
Sacramento were divided upon the meas
ures submitted to the legislature for
ictlon at the extra suasion by Governor
\Vhilo it is the fashion for Bourbon
irators to denounce the republican party
is the monopoly purty , it is nevertheless
true that that party as a national party is
Lho first to formulate ) a platform in which
tlio doctrine of legislative control of rail
roads is clearly sot forth. Two of the
strongest planks in the platform are
1-1 Thb regulation of commerce with foreign
nations and between the ataten is ouo of the
most important prerogative ) ! of Iho eonoral
jovornment , and the republican party distinct-
y announces Ita purpose to support such Icg-
slstlon as will fully and efficiently carry V > ut
die constitutional power of congrcm over in-
; er-stato commerce.
The principle of the public regulation of
railroad corporations \ a wise and ( military
mo for the protection of all classes of the poo-
; > lo,9and wo favor legislation that will prevent
in just discrimination and excessive chargou
'or transportation , and that shall secure to the
> ooplo and the railways nllko the fair and
xmal protection of the IUWH.
Wo expect to see these declarations re
iterated in the republican state platform
iud wo trust that the conventions of the
party will have the siigiicity to select men
rho will not make a mockery of them.
