But a few short weeks will elapse Ibefore( the
Lgislature meet,s, and an interesting sessin
it promises to be in view of the grave matters
which will then and there be discussed. Ac
trdling to the generally declared wish, both
of the public and the pres.., the flrst duty to
which the Logislature will probably address
ltself will be the consideration of the very
grave and Important question of the revision
ot the State constitution. To this all minor
questions will have to be postponed, all others
elbordinated, if the Legislature hopes to
.rry out in a spirit of fairness the views of
It represents.
There is no doubt that the people of this
Htate favor a revision of their constitution
gand there is no doubt that they have indicated
sclearly as such a thing can be done, that
revision to be at all practicable, can only
e effected thronugh the agency and instru
maentality of a convention. Whatever differ
eale of opinion may have once existed with
Sserence to the mode in which this revision
ihould be effected, this difference has long
mines disappeared and passpd out of view in
t Ue light of more recent discussion. All par
Sare now in accord that the present con
ftitution is too defective to be reached by
amendments, and that we have no option, if
we desired one, but to call a convention and
fr me an entirely new constitution.
The Legislature has thus a duty before it,
1nd it is a plain one. Neither ofllclal blan
dishment in high places, nor the Ilatteries
and najolery of the capital, must be allowed
interfere with this high and patriotic duty.
The people are in no mood to be trifled with.
The votes of their representatives wilU be
Olosely scanned, and a rigorous accountabililty
enforced. The representative who expects to
lsiJty his trust and yet escape punishment,
grosly deceives himself. There will be no
mercy shown to recalcitrants. Nor is it to be
eredited that any such will be forced Into the
trnks ofa paty whose watchword is reform.
The duty of the Legislature, in this view,
we repeat then, becomes an exceedingly plain
lne. % firsot act, after voting the appropria
U f, should be to order the convention. Its
st, if t carries out the will of the constitu
wt, will be to adjourn.

[Lincoln Sentinel.1
Thetime Is now near at hand when the con
ta convention question must be set
and we hope it will be in the negative of
Sproposition; for we believe that a consti
S btona! convention held at this time would
trove detrimental to the well being of the
e and good government of the &ite, We
Sinstl of calling a convention that
otah prudenoe and economy will constrain the
z t~-aelilature to propose amendments to
Oonsitution that will inimediately, when
pted, ourtail governmental expenses
remove the heavy burden of taxation
M the shoulders of the people. A reduo
Sof taxation is the all-important matter
ch consideration at this time. But in our
ts to bring about this desiratum we must
careful not to make any false step. There
are other questions than that of economy to
consildered before the policy of calling a
tutlonal convention can be doter
miln ed. The whole state of political
mattrs must be weighed in the scale.
The political sentiments of a majority
of the voters of this State are by no
smeans settled and who knows what the re
sult will be if we hold a constitutional con
wentlon? To attempt such a thing in the
present juncture of affairs would certainly
place a very dangerous argument into the
mouths of our adversaries, and, we fear, re
ault in the defeat not only of the roplosed
constitution, but of the Democratic nominooees
uor the next general election.
But aside from all this, we believe that it
would be cheaper, wiser and better, at this
time. to reduce taxation by amending the con
stitution than by calling a convention to
frame a now document and submit it for rati
"'""l.(toan. A constitutional convention will
o0st the ieple not l.es than two hundred
aid fifty thousand dollars, besides a great
eal of excitement and unnecessary trouble.
When we consider the uncertainty of the
result of a constitutional convention and the
general confusion that will inevitably follow
whether the new instrument be adopted as
our organic law or not, we enter an earnest
roitest against the movement for a constitu
convention to be called by the next
W Lgslature. By proposing amendments to
lthe constitution the most objectionable fea
t tes, expensive provisions of the constitution
,aln be changed, giving great relief to the tax
payer and at no more cost than will natural
incurred by the next session of the
egilatMre. Most of the arguments we have
seen in favor of a constitutional convention
have been addressed mainly to the prejudices
and passions of the people, and not to their
The question to consider is, not when the
present constitution was adopted, nor who
by, but what are its objectionabie features,
and how can the necessary changes best be
made. If the people of Louisiana were to
have a thousand constitutional conventions,
the greater part of the present constitution
uld be engrafted into each new constitution.
The objection has been raised to proposed
amendments by the Legislature that "the
people" should say what the constitutional
.aw should be. In answer to this it is only
aaeessary that "the people" have just as
7much voice in adopting amendments as they
fould have in adopting a new constitution.
The convention would be composed of del
aates from all parts of the State, and its polil
Ucal complexion would be similar to the pres
ent "make-up" of the Legislature.

The Secretary of War to-day informed
your correspondent that he would not
make out the warrant on the Secretary of the
