Among the numberless institutions of
learning in nnd ubout Omaha which more
than aught oho makes the progrcsa of
Nebraska and its young metropolis , ia
the atato institute for the deaf and dumb.
Located three miles northwest on the
military road , hidden from even the most
casual observation nt any pirt of the
city this great and bonificonb factor of
iVmorica's liberal system of education
conducts its noble work almost
unnoticed. An easy drive ever a
fair dirt road through the suburban
beauties of Omaha , with the broad , fer
tile bottom lands of tho. Missouri and
rugged blufla which akirt the Iowa bor
der of the stream , for the greater time in
view , takes the visitor thither. Walled
with tall hedge-rows of cottouwoods , at
thia season loafed In gold , the broad
sward atill brightly green , the hardy na
tive flowora yet blooming in their brief
lease , of life , and the tall , handsome
buildings , give the place nn napoct dia-

of Miss Fanny Henderson , ono of the
honored tutors , n Br.fi representative was
given n tour of the premises yoatorday.
Many substantial improvement ? have
boon made throughout the buildings
thia year nud the school is thoroughly
equipped in all the modern appointments
of comfort and practical elegance. The
institution , foatcrod ns it la by
the state , is conducted , on the
aamo principles aa the public school a
and is not , as many erroneously believe ,
either an asylum or rofugo. It io simply
a otato school , devoted to the education
of deaf mutes , and in all caooa , whcro
able , the pupils pay _ a regular foe for
board and lodging. After the
regular three months' vacation , at
which time the scholars nil returned to
their homea. the school session began
September 17th. Ninety-two pupils are
already enrolled , with the assurance of
at least twenty more before Christmas.
A walk through the warda , school rooms ,
and about the grounds where
scholars are found in various employ
ments of pleasure and usefulness ,
ia a privilege accorded every visitor. The
scholars ditl'cr in no apparent feature from
those who comprise every school , and

seems , has in atonement for its griovona
guilt in robbing these children of our
most highly prized capabilities , hearing
and speech , given them a purity of soul
and innocence of heart which almost
overshadows wlthlta blessings the sadness
of their deprivations. And again , if
their kind instructors are to bo be
lieved , these children are vested with
nn ncutoncaa of intellect which their
"more favored" brothora and nistora
rarely possess. They are quick iu learn

in mechanics and art show generally a
hearty willingness to work. They are
now preparing , in the school room shops

Yesterday afternoon two men named

At tha last session of tlio legislature a

The section named , aa It no\r atandfi ,
a in thoao words :

papers there ; anil nil llicera heroin named
ilmll perform such duties as may bo required
Comparing the amendment with the
original section , wn find that the material
changes which it proposes , as indicated
by the words italicised , may , for the
sake of convenience , bo stated thus :
I. It makes it the duty of the com
missioner of public lands and buildings
and the nttornoy general to rasidu nt the
scat of government and to keep thuir
oilicial books and papers there.
II. It provides for the creation of n
board of railway commiosiouora.
III. It contemplates bringing into
oxistenca n sot of officers othrr than the
hoard of rniltvay commiylonrrs , such
other ullicors bomg thoao that may b&
' for law uuder the
provided by provis
ions" of the amend mon' .
Now lot us dwell for a moment upon
each of these features of the amendment
in the order named.
I. The requirement that the "com
missioner of public lands and buildings
and attorney general shall reside at the
cent of government , " etc. , can perhaps
do no harm : but on the other hand it
may do some good in securing a bettor
discharge of public duty the ollicers
namod. In fact , the 4ent of .government
scorns the proper place for thorn to rcaido
while in the service of the people. 'Tit
therefore probable that this feature will
not bo very seriously aaaailod.
II. As to the board of railway com
missioners. The creation of this board
under the vague and indefinite provis
ions of the amendment , is open to sev
eral objections which seem entitled to
Among theeo objections are the follow
First. The number of persons to com
pose this board is not fixed. It may bo
small or great. It may bo two , or it maybe
bo a hundred , for aught that appears
from the amendment. Thopouplo oughl
to know how largo a body of oilicial dig-
mtarics this board is to bo , before they
vote it into existence. Who knows but
that it may bo suliiciontly numerous and
powerful to control legislation in the in
terest of gigantic corporations and t''us
become n means of plundering our citi-
zone and robbing our taxpayers ? The
amendment not only fails to fix the num
ber of persons of which the board is to
bocompoiod , but it also fails to desig
nate the authority which is to determine
the number. Lot any ono read the con
stitution and the proposed amendment
in connection with it , and then say , if ho
can , how many members will make up
this board of railway celebrities ?
Second. The duties of the board are
not declared oven in general outline.
Tlio matter of proscribing thcao duties is
loft for legislative enactment. Tlio peo-
plu therefore do not know , and
cannot know with aty degree of
certainty , the powers with which
this boaad is to bo voatcd or tlio
particular service to bo required at
its hands , till after the legislature shall
have acted , and if the action of the legis
lature could bo foreseen , the people
might look upon the ciotalon of the board
as an absolute public calamity.
If this board is a thing of such vast
importance as to eustify the subimeslon
of a constitutional amendment to bring it
into being , is it not of equal importance
that the people should know somothint ; of
the particular ends it ia designated to
accomplish , before they give it existence ?
In short can the people say with intelli
gence , whether they desire this board or
not , -without first knowing tlio powers
with which it is [ to bo clothed , tlio rights
it is to exercise , and the duties it is to
perform ? Wo thluk not
Third. The salary of the members of
this board Is not fixed , It may bo n
liundred dollars per year , cr it may bo
five thousand , or it may bo much more.
Whatever it may bo , the people will
liavo to pay it. The constitution fixed
the compensation of nearly all , if not
quito all , other slate officers. This is
Lruo at any rate of members of the lo is-
laturo , of supreme o > urt judged and of all
officers belonging to thovxucutivo depart
ment at iliti present timo. Since the
people act ug in their a wcreign , consti
tution-making rapacity , have doomed it
wise to within Id from the legislature the
lalnfr of taUritB of nil the ofli < era just
named , la not a departure from that
aamo wisdom to permit tha logitUturo to
rouulato the pay of Una board of railroad
cappers and corporation bummers ? And
ftincu the peoplu have determined the nal
aries in the ono cuso , ought they not to
do so in the other ? 1'ho great trouble
with thnamcndmont , ho trover , Is that i >
don't giro thorn a chanco.
JAjurth , Inasmuch this board would ,
upon ttiu ado , t m f the amendment ,
became it part of the executive depart
uieiit , it would hive a right to incur the
expenditures of clerk Iiiro nnd thua add ,
[ lotLnps , much more to the expensive *
ness of this proposed board of railway
wire-pullers ; for by section 21 , article V ,
of the constitution , the right to such ex
penditures is denied in express terms to
nouo of the ollicors at the executive do-
psrtmonl , except the Attorney nouoral
xnd the superintendent of public instruc
On ihs other hand , theco expenditures
tro imnllodly allowed to all other mom-
bora of this department , including the
iiow oflicora provided for by the am emi
nent. Let the amendment bo approved
ind ono thing nt least la almost certain :
Those railroad strikers nnd their clerks
will got largo salaries , drink numerous
cocktails , cat lobsters , crow bold-headed
"roin good Hung nnd die rich at the ox *
> ? nso of n tux rlddmi people.
Fifth The amendment does not pro
vide how vacancies in Una board nro to
tilled ; nor is there any ouch provision
.0 bo found olaewlicro in the constitu-
Sec. 10 , Art. 5 , nnd Sec. 20 ,
latno article , provide how vacancies
in the ollico of governor nnd in nil other
ollicea of the executive department ahull
jo filled , naming such ollicca specifically ;
but no reference ia tuado in either of
thcao two sections , even in n general
wayto this board of distinguished rail
way commissioners who nro to bo the
exulted creatures of special constitutional
Tlio constitution , failing itself to
oint out the manner in which vacancies
) ccurrtng in this board ahall bo tilled ,
ias by Soc. 20 , Art. 2 , empowered
, ho legislature to do so in such cases.
lly looking nt Hoc. 103 , page
270 , Compiled Statutes , it will bo soon
that the legislature has . already
ictod in the premises , nnd haa vested the
governor with authority to ( ill such va
cancies by appointment. Are the people
willing to glvo this additional power to
.ho governor ?
111. As to that part of the amendment
Inch vaguely provides for the creation ,
jy legislative action , of n net of officer *
without naming them , other than those , to
compose the board of railway commis
sioners , objections may bo urged , similar
.o-thoso directed against thn board itself.
The number of those ollicors , their du
ties , rights , powers , salaries , the number
of clerks they may employ at the people's
expense , how , when nnd by whom they
are to bo Appointed or elected , nro nil
matters on which wo nro left in profound
On all these things the legislature will
some day enlighten us , if the amendment
shall bo adopted. But till light cornea
from that source , wo shall bo obliged to
remain in blissful ignorance.
Again , the creation of the oflicoa lint
named by legislative enactment seems to
io prohibited by Section 20 , Article V.
of the constitution , which is in thcao
"No other executive utato ollic3 shall be con-
ttnuctPor created , and the duties now dovolv <
, \\K upon olliuorj not provided by this conati
, ution , shall bo performed by the olHcers hero
in created. "
Now when it ia observed that this quo
tation comprises the closing section of the
article containing the section sought to
ba amended , ia it not apparent that the
object of section 2i ( ns quoted alone , waste
to prevent the legislature from creating
executive ata o ollices whatever , dooming
these Epocilicnlly designated in preceding
sections of the article , fully able to din-
chnrgo all the duties of the nxccutivo de
If each was nnd still ia its object , con
sidering the constitution na it now stands
then it follows that the amendment , sc
far us it gives the legislature authority to
create now offices in the executive
tivo department , is in conilic
with section 20 ns sot out abovo. Am
if the amendment bo adopted may wo
not expect lively times in the courts
hereafter , determining which of these
dualling provisions of the constitution
shall prevail. Taken all in all , it seems
that the amendment is too loouel ;
framed , too general , vague and Indefinite
In its provisions to justify its adoption
Let us therefore , follow citizens , join to
gather and vote it down. MALVOLIO.

The MaUliiK itnil Dissipation of < reafi
Goimuodoro Vanderbilt was a marvul
of physical nnd manly beauty , lie waa
tnll , atraii'ht na a ramrod , with a prolilo
which would adorn nny camop eve ; cut.
lie wi a Bcrupulously neat in hia dress ,
and had nn old-fashioned politeness about
him which never failed to charm where
ho desired to accomplish that end. Ilia
oaily life waa a tough ono. lie nnvor
went t ( school ; ho never were u medal ;
ho never got a prizo. Ho was fortunate
to got boots in the winter. Ho pushed
Hat-boats ; ho drove mules ; ho sold
vegetables ; ho served as a dock-hand ;
ho worked himself literally and absolute
ly > by hia cloan-cut intellect , to a piano
of independence , and from there ho
madoa bound into the realms of super
iority which made all hia follows won
der , worship , and admire. ,
G cargo Law and Cornelius Vaudcrbllt
were American-born , and started aa low
as boys could start. See whcro they rose
to. Astor was about aa poor and iriond-
less an emigrant aa ever landed on these
shores , and BOO what ho grow to. 1 don't
know what Commodore Vandobilt would *
think if to-day ho could como from hia
spirithomo and sea the wasting millions
of hla sou. L very much fear ho would
bo tempted to reiterate hia oft-quoted
expression about the "booby. " 1 don't
know what ho would think of the
scrica of Vanderbilt places that do so
much to beautify and adorn Fifth
avenue , but which very rarely aitbrd fc
scenes of hospitality. 1 don't know what j [ '
ho would think to BOO hia favorite son ,
day in and day out , week iu and week
out , year in and year out , conaorting * *
with jockeya , spending time and strength
and interest in the stables , while hia ' ( '
proportlca decrease in value , and the
gaping world looka at hia fat face , smiling
derisively aa the game goes on. Old man
Vanderbilt made his money by hard
knocks aud by ingenious twisting of hia
follow-mon ; tlio present Vanderbilt ia
being sucked dry gradually by the smart
tallows in Wall street , by the follies of
: his Ron , and by the rapid growth of hta
rivala. No ono for a moment imagines
that a fortune of § 150,000,000 could bo
ruined in a lifetime , but everybody who
known that Mr. Vanderbilt no
longer holds United States bonda to the
extent ho boasted , -while there are found
saddled upon him innumerable trades .
and dlckcro , made cither by or for him. -i
in consequence of which many , yen , very ;
many millions have been taken , not alone
from what ho has made , but from what
his father loft him. Old man Vanderbilt
! was a very singular fellow , lie would
spend a million rather than bo beaten iu
a fight , but ho would grip a sixpence
tight rather than bo cheated in a trade.
IIo wna reckless and saving a singular
combination of Now York rcckloasncaa
and Staten Island pcnuriousncea. The
present Vaudorbilt aoorao to have no ays-
torn of expenditure. lie haa a
magnificent house , with costly pic *
lures , nnd has lived in It for years ,
yet the entertainments given to
Bocloty in general can bo counted on the
fingers of emu hand while those of hin in
timate friends could bo counted on the
lingers of both handa. IIo isn't generous
to rich or poor. Subscription papers lib
erally responded to by all hia neighbors :
get from him the cold shoulder only. It
may bo thattho fentivo William is follow
ing the scriptural injunction , and doea
not lot his rinht hand know the good hia
left hand dootli , and for hia own com
fort/a oako I trust that it ia BO ; but the
bible didn't ' mean that a mnn should hldo
hia light under a bushel , particularly
when ho was an oiictiic light , and its ex-
umplo la likely to bo followed for the
good or ill of the human race. Il Vau-
dcrbilt declines to give to this , that , or
the other , poorer mnn can well a ( lord to
say : "Well , if ho doesn't give , I won't. "
It really ia a pity that not ono of the very
rich men in Now York city can bo quoted
on a conspicuous benefactor of hia raco.
Of the throe , George Law ia the best
hearted. IIo gives frocly and apcnda
largely. Although not recognized as a
humanitarian in the popular sonao , I
doubt if a poor devil m distress ever ,
wont to him without being In BOIUO way
25 YEARS IN USE.
