at the ehleclion decided first of all
,hal a convention should be held at
the same time they fixed the powers
if tIhe convelniion, andrI then pro
Cdl'dedl to (l.,('it their i lldelegate to

the power's they had fixed. And the.
did yet more: They reposed a sn

without sulbmissioid, the Constitution

fixted, the fundamental law of the
"You are not to dlo or attempt to
d6." lie said. "anything inconsistent
with any constitutional provision.
Out of this general provision, how
ever, are excepted two subjects, viz.:
the Stat es bonded debt maturing on
Jan. 1, 1914. and the Sewerage and
Water Board of the City of New
Orb ans."
'lThis warning would seem io bt
tinirly. as there a)ppears at the very
threshold of this convention a
scheme for legislation not provided
nor mentioned in the call of the ex
ecutive of the State.
It may be declared with emphasis
that this convention is not designed
for any. play at politics nor to pro
mote schemes that may profit indi
viduals or trusts or combines or of
special interests, that the functions
if this convention are specific and
when performed the convention will
have reached an end and must ad
journ finally, and therefore any at
tempt at any other proceeding will
be equivalent to a deliberate usur
pation of authority.
This view of the Caucasian is
more forcibly expressed by former
tiovernor Blanchard in his address
to the convention:
"No matter at. what reasonable
cost. the . good name of the State
must he preserved, her faith and
credit preserved untarnished.
"That is the great work commit
ted to your hands.
"The constitutional grant of au
thority to the State Board of Liqui
dation, made in 1910. having failed
of its purpose, auother and a larger
and fuller grant of authority to the
board must be made, to the end of
enabling the board to preserve the
State from the stigma which will
attach to it if it defaults in January
on its outstanding bonds maturing
"That is what.you are here for to
day. That is what the people sent
you here to do. Having accomplished
that, and having enlarged the pow
ers of the Sewerage and Water
Board of the City of New Orleans, or
done that which is necessary to en
able that board to improve the Wa
ter and sewerage system of our
_reat city. and tfus add to the. com
fort, health and happii .of its
hundreds of thousands rof people.
this convention will, I take it, he

Chicago Tribune that stupporters of
Secretary Bryan and the nationai
administration in that State are said
to be preparing t1 tolake advantage
of Senator Gilbert 11. Hitchcock by
suggesting a thousand or more of

his opposition to the currency hill
and other administration measures.

Such a petition, signed by forty-one
professed partisans of the senator,
written on stationery of the Boons
County D)emocratic Committee, is
now on its way to Washington. If
this is followed up by a petition
from the opposition, it is hoped to
have the desired effect.
It is admitted those who signed
the Boone County petition may not
know the difference between the
Glass-Owen bill and the Hitchcock
amendments, but that. does not keep
the average Democrat of Nebraska
from signing the petition. He does
know the ultimate source of patron
age in the State is the President.
