County and City Official Prm. Monday, Sept. 18, 1876. THS STATE CONVSHTIOH PROPOSITION. The legislature at its last session passed a new act " to providw for the formation of a constitution and State government for the Territory of Wash ington." Th s, in tome of its provisos, it an improvement on the farmer abortive act* for tbe call of a constitu tional convention. Instead of stipulat ing as heretofore, that only votes on which shall lie written or printed the words " For convention," or " ("onven tion yes" shall be counted in favor of the measure, and all others, indiscrim inately, against it, it enacts that only rotes on which shall be printed the words " Against convention " shall b e counted in the negative, and tboae cast "For convention" affirmatively, and tbe count shall be made independently from that for delegate, a majority of the specific votes on the proposition deciding for or ngniust the rail. There will be few if any questions involved in tbe coming election of great er importance to the people of Wash ington than this of application for ad mission into the Union as a State It is true we have not yet population enough to demand admission of our own right by law, but then we do not need for that reason to lie down to a Hip Van Winkle sleep and wait until we do have enough. There is a possibility in that case,that the ratio of apportionment will move forward on the sliding scale faster than our population does. We need admission and th« consequent po litical representation, in order to obtain the mean* to development. As it is now. We are subject to repression by our commercial rivals. The powerful patronage and fostering resources of the government, manipulated, so far as this ooasi is concerned, by the Senators smd representatives of our neighbor States, is used, as far as possible, to divert and dry up the springs of our prosperity, even to break np our territorial dimen sions. This measure in the only thing that can give to national party yueation? and political bnes of demarcation, that di vide and atir the people of the Union at Urge, any apecial significance in this Territory Whatever. It aeema necessary •Ten to the preservation of the integrity of our Territorial domain rule the se cession agitation in Walla Walla and Columbia. Though we hare not the nutnlier of people preecrilnrd a* prerequisite to ad mission, neither did Oregon, nor iudccd the majority of recent States, when ad ■sitted. There is no better reason why Washington Territory, after having served a territorinl apprenticeship of nearly a quarter of a century, should not be admitted with 40,000 people, than Nevada, ten or twelve years ngo, with 515,000 estimated. Aa a State we sh< uld have the aame voice In the aa New York or Pennsylvania, and in tb« House aa Ore gon or Nevada To auch a representa tion we are entitled by the genius of the WMtitution, for the statesmanlike foresight of Jefferaon and his compters In framing that charter of our liberties, provided that the Senate should t*e representative ol territorial interests, distinctively, as tba House ia ot popu lar.

KUBOPB. ly)MK).s, Sept. 16—The Daily TeU <jrayh'» special from Vienna assert> that Germany will not move in aid of Rus sia's demands upon Turkey, and in event of \v:tr will remain absolutely neutral. The Tdtqrapfi * correspondent at Paris reports that a sensation was cau««d in that city T>y the publication last even ing in the Journal Ist France of the text of an alleged treaty signed by Bismarck and Oortschakoff, purj>orting to have been made last June, and provid ing for the settlement of the Eastern question in case of war. The whole thing is absurd and caused much excite ment, and obtaiuad credence in certain circles. The Standard's dispatch from Bel grade says the Turks made an attack on Tuesday on Mali Lewarnk to prevent the Servians from sending reinforce ments to Geu. Tchernayoff, but the fighting on the Drum cannot influence the issue of tlie war at Alexinatz. A correspondent with the Turks says that their plan of operations is to cross the Morava, storm the Servian position at Delgrade, occupy it and then return to take Alexinatz. Both positions are strong, and the task will !>e one of enor mous difficulty. The tirst attempt to carry out the plan by bridging the Mo rava on Monday wus unsuccessful. BELGRADE, Sept. 15,—A telegram to ttic Daily Xeirn says rain lias been fall ing in torrents for the last two day** and the Morava valley is now a great swamp. By systematically burning the villages the Turks have destroyed what would have been their shelter and they are now exposed without shelter to the storm. Important military operations are impossible and a week of rain will render the valley untenable. The Ser vians have supplies for a year's cam paign at Delgrade and Alexinatz. The Turks are obliged to haul everything from Siech, and their withdrawal to that point is expected. A report is current here that the Turks have captured two or three Ser vian redoubts at Littl* Swarruek. The government will shortly issue notes ranging from one to one hundred francs a« a forced currency. COUNCIL PROCEEDINGS.
