THE COURT WAS THIRSTY.
So It Overruled t'e Supremo Court and
BoiiKht Itself Drink.
Just as Shakespear has been ac
cepted for years and years as the
deciding umpire in most matters
literary, so the Nebraska people had
grown to look upon the Supreme
Court of their State as the fountain
head of wisdom whose opinions
could not be gainsaid. It is a way
people have of regarding Supreme
Courts in most States, as a matter
William Alstadt, a little German,
whose readiest identification among
his people was by the name of "Bis
marck, was not one who cared
overmuch for tradition, and one
summer day, after having been
harangued by two lawyers until he
was almost bursting with thirst, he
made a decisin which brought him
fame. It does not make any
especial difference what was the
question at issue. It was something
about a dog. There was a sensible
side to it and a technical side. The
"technical" lawyer presented
bushels and tons of authorities, and
finally wound up with a triumphant
declaration that the Supreme Court
had decided on a similar case before
and had decided his way.
When he sat down, Rismark, with
a sigh of relief, said : "I decide for
de oder feller. Come on poys, let's
dako a drink."
"Hut," cried the defeated lawyer,
in astonishment, "I tell you, Your
Honor, that the Supreme Court has
decided exactly opposite."

OCR EDUCATIONAL INTERESTS.
Why They Need a CoiiMlitutlnual Con
vention. The public chool law, as enacted
in 187:$, contained excellent pro
visions for the benefit of the country
schools. After providing for a State
school t ix, the law empowered the
several County Courts to levy ad
ditional taxes for the schools, and
further provided that the several
school districts should be incorpo
rated and invested with powers for
improving t' eir schools, similar to
those now possessed by the towns.
The portion of the law conferring
this power on the school districts
was declared unconstitutional by
the courts, and was subsequently re
pealed. Thus an important link in
the general plan of the school sys
tem was broken, and the power of
raising the standard of the schools
was lost to the country districts.
Why should this privilege be denied
to the country districts while it is
enjoyed by all the towns and cities?
It is because the Constitution of
the State permits local self-govern
ment to municipal corporations, but'
denies the privilege to country dis
tricts. Is this just or wise? Why
cannot the country districts be en
trusted with this power as safely as
the towns or cities? Yet our present
It is no fault of the Legislature.
The representatives of the people in
the General Assembly framed the
law to give the country districts tliis
right, but the courts and the Con
stitution said "no."
In 1885 the General Assembly, at
its extra session, repaired this bro
ken link in the school system as far
as the Constitution would permit.
A law was passed to enable munic
ipal corporations to provide for es
tablishing and maintaining "high
graded schools." This enactment
was eminently wise, and was the
only step which the Constitution
permitted the Legislature to take
towards the local control and sup
port of schools. It has led to im
portant results. The cities and
towns seized the advantage, and
nearly every municipal corporation
in the State has establised a "high
graded school" and maintains it for
a full term. In fact, the "high
graded public school" Is the pride of
The successful operation of these
town schools has had the effect to
make the country school districts
feel still more keenly the lack of a
similar power. Why cannot the
country school district have the
power to elevate its schools to the
same standard? Why must they be
entirely dependent upon the consent
of the whole country?
Demands frequently come to the
Legislature to cure this injustice,
but the Legislature is powerless.
There is no remedy but a change in
These school demands illustrate
the defect in our fundamental law
a defect which reaches every inter
est in the State; a grave defect,
amounting to injustice to the coun
try districts. . Not only in school
economy, but for many other impor
tant purposes, the country districts
need corporate powers, and they
have , a right 'to demand local self
government. This right can be ac-

There was only one printer who
could read Greeley's writing well
enough to put it in type. He used
to boast that he could read the great
editor's wonderous scrawl a mile
away, says tne journal or education.
One night the boys In the Tribune
compos'ng room "put up a job on
the old man. They took two roost
ers, made them waiK arouna on a
newlv inked form and then run all
over ten sheets of copy paper.
The foreman wrote over it In
Greeley's well known scrawl, "The
Plain Duty of Congress," and put it
on old man Lawton's hook. I think
his name was Lawton, but if it was
not it does not matter much.
The old printer nicked it up,
swore a little, remarked that they
had to shove it oil on the old man,
as usual, adjusted his spectacles and
began sticking type.
The other printers watched him
for a few minutes, but beyond a
muttered oath or two he gave no
sign. Liawton went on setting type
until about halt way through the
Then he was stuck.
He took the copy over to the fore
man and asked.
"Jack, what is that word?"
"I don't know," replied the fore
man, "iou know 1 never coum
read the stuff."
Lawton took the sheet down to
Greeley and pointed out to him a
particularly awful scrawl of the
rooter s loot, asking what worn
Greeley looked at it a moment and
then replied with a frown.
" 'Unconstitutional,' of course."
Lawton went back to the compos
ing room and finished his task with
the utmost sangfroid.
The old man never knew how the
"copy" was produced.
Ilie Negro North ami South.
The Ram's Horn last week con
tains the following editorial ut
terance on the negro question:
"The south has its own responsi
bilities and burdens, and short
comings too; but in ill treatment of
the negro we doubt if she can ap
proach the north, where the lot of
the black ran i- painful and ob
scure. In the south every avenue
to industrial life is open to him, but
in the north he is scarcely ever
found except In the most menial

marries and the minister gets an
other fee. The chap on the news
paper gets a piece of cake (maybe)
or $000. In the course of time it
dies. The doctor gets from $5 to

from every quarter. If the dear
public could just once get it into
their heads that everybody's busi

perhaps there would be a better
feeling all around. We are hound
