Amendments to the constitution of our
state can be submitted to a vote of the
people for their approval or rejectio/i at
the general election at which members of
the legislature are chosen , and at no
other time * Proposed amendments were
submitted at the last general election ,
and with respect to one of them it may
be said that its adoption would have been
for the best interest of the state , and that
public opinion largely sustained this view
of the matter. I may add that Its rejec
tion Is a source of general regret , and in
a great measure , if not wholly , due to
the excitement of a heated political con
test in which personal and party interests
so absorbed and engaged the public mind
that 'questions of a. , purely public
nature were neglected. The ques
tion of a change In the funda
mental law of our state is one
upon which the people in their action
cannot well be too conservative , and
such a proposition should come before
them in such manner , and at such time
as will enable them to judge of its merits ,
standing , alone , and relieved from dis
turbing side issues , yiiis view of the
subject can be made practical by such
provision as will euaole the people to
vote upon amendments at a special elec
tion for that purpose , and by providing
for the canvass of the votes cast at such
election. I would recommend that you
provide for a re submission of the amend
ment to section four (4) of article three
(3) of the constitution , increasing the
duration of legislative session , and'com-
pensation of members.
The matter of the frequent requests of
parties residing in the east for pamphlets
containing reliable information concern
ing Nebraska has been repeatedly brought
to the notice of the legislature , but thus
far no action has been taken upon the
recommendations made in connection
therewith. In the absence of an Immi
gration bureau , whose duty it would be
to prepare such documents for circula
tion , I would recommend that you au
thorize and provide means for the prepa
ration and publication of a pamphlet
containing a brief historical and descrip
tive statement of Nebraska , her develop
ment , resources , and attractions of soil
and climate , to be folio wed by statistical
information both vital and material.
Said pamphlet to be prepared under the
direction of some of the state officers ,
and properly authenticated for general
distribution. This is a subject eminently
worthy of your attention and favorable
It is p'rovided iu section three hundred
nd thirty-four (334) of the ciim-
inal code , that the governor of
this state may , in any case au
thorized by the constitution and
laws of the United States , appoint agents
to demand of the executive authority of
"any foreign government any fugitive from
justice charged with treason or felony ,
and the accounts of the agents appointed
must be audited and paid out of the state
funds. Under our statutes the term
felony signifies such an offense as may be
punished with death or imprisonment in
the penitentiary , which definition in
cludes what may be termed crimes of
lesser grade , such as it seems to me should
not be made the basis of a requisition
unless the papers in the case come to the
executive properly certified to by either
the prosecuting attorney or the judge of
the district within which the crime is
committed as being in their judgment a
case in which requisition should issue.
Papers are filed meeting fully the re
quirements of the law , and the party
asking that requisition be granted makes
bis sworn statement that the fact * set
forth in the petition are true , and that the
requisition is not desired for the' purpose
of collecting a debt , for the enforcement
of any civil process , or to answer any
private end whatsoever. The fugitive is
returned , the agent makes his return
upon commission under oath , and the
claim for expenses of the trip , making
arrest , and for the services of the agent is
audited and paid by the state. Thus far
all is well , but I am informed by those
who are in a .position to know that but a
very small proportion of the cases above
referred to are prosecuted to conviction ,
friends interceding and effecting a com
promise , with the results as seen ,
of the state funds being used for
the collection of private claims ,
and not to satisfy the ends of justice as
intended by this law. The governor can
not adopt an arbitrary rule us to a .certain
class of eases , and is powerless to pre
vent the abuses that exist under the pres
ent law. A remedy is suggested through
the enactment of a law providing that in
all cases , excepting those of murder , as
sault with intent to kill , rape , or assault
with intent to commit rape , arson , rob
bery and treason , the person app.ying for
tbe requisition shall advance the expen
ses incident to apprehension and return
of the fugitive , to be reimbursed by the
state upon proper proof being made as
to prosecution and conviction. It may
"V be urged that such alaw would discrimin
ate as againbt those who might be unable
§ s . to make such advance. For such , an
exception could be made , upon the filing
of proper affidavits setting forth their in
ability. Such a law as herein indicated ,
will be a source of great saving to the
An act of congress approved Feb. 10 ,
1883 , authorized and provided for a
world's exposition to be held at the city
of New Orleans in the year lt > 84. In ac
cordance vith this act. President Arthur
issued proclamation inviting each
state to participate in this exhibit , and
calling upon the governors of the respec
tive states to name a Commissioner and
alternate to represent their state. In
compliance with this request I named as
commissioner Hon. Robert AV. Furnas ,
and as alternate commissioner Hon. Al-
binus Nance , to represent Nebraska _ at
the exposition. As an aid and to en"
courage the work , the national govern
ment loaned the exposition management
$1,000,000 , and appropriated § 300,000
for the purpose of a government
display. From the sum so loaned
to them , the management placed
to tbe credit of tbe several states ,
conditioned upon their raising a like
amount within the state , the sum of § 5-
000. This matter came to me too late
for presentation to tbe legislature of 1883 ,
nud as it was deemed of tbe greatest im
portance to the interests of Nebraska that
she should be represented in this matter ,
steps were taken to raise tbe money.
Publio'splrlted citizens interested them
selves in the matter , meetings were held
and plans discussed. At length , at a
joint meeting of the state agricultural
and horticultural societies they agreed to
advance $1,000 each from the funds at
their disposal nnd look to the legislature
to reimburse them. The remainder
$3,000 was obtained from the banks at
Lincoln and at Omaha upon the personal
notes of myself and the members of the
societies above named , for which you
will be asked to provide. With his
characteristic energy and enthusiasm ,
ilr. Furnas entered upon the prosecu
tion of the work placed in his hands , and
tbe result of his work so untiringly and
intelligently performed , is witnessed in
the magnificent display of the varied re
sources of Nebraska now upon exhibition
at New Orleans a display that has called
forth . ( enconiums from the press of the
country , attracting general attention ,
and eliciting from those who have not
visited Nebraska expressions of wonder
and astonishment at the great extent and
variety of her resources.
This is Nebraska's opportunity , and
she must not fail to improve it. To meet
the sums advanced and borrowed , aud to
meet the necessary expenses of a proper
conduct of the exhibit until the close of
the Exposition May 30th , will require an
appropriation ot not less than $10,000 ,
and I would recommend such appropria
tion as a measure of the wisest economy.
The act should be passed at once , with
emergency clause attached.
In making recommendations that in
clude the creating of various boards , I dose
so not unmindful of the fact that obsta
cles are said to stand in the way of such
action upon -your part ; but they are
nevertheless submitted , with the hope
and belief that you will be able to sur
mount the difficulty , if it in reality exists.
A communication has been received at
this department from the national board
of health setting forth very fully the
danger that menaces the people of this
country in the apprehended appearance
of Asiatic cholera , and earnestly request
ing that the attention of the legislature
be called to this subject , and to the
urgent necessity of appropriate legisla
tion providing means whereby the most
thorough sanitary service , state and
local , may be immediately organized.
Communications have also been received
from the Nebraska State Medical Society ,
through its chairman , and from leading
physicians , expressing their views , fully
sharing the fear of danger from the
source named above , and all. without
exception , urging the duty of the legis
lature in the enactment of a law pro
viding for the organization of a state
boardTof health'with power to establish
auxiliary boards in such parts of the
state as in their judgment might seem
necessary. An imperative demand for
such action has been created by the large
increase of our population , and the rap
idly increasing number and size of our
towns and cities. The subject is referred
to you for such action as tue great im
portance of the interests involved would
seem to dictate.
It is recommended that you provide for
the organization of a hoard .to be known
as the state board of charities and re
form. After consultation with those
whose long experience in work of this
character justiy entitles their views to
great weight , and adopting in the main
their suggestions , I would say , that such
a board should be clothed with full power
to see and hear all that is needful to a
full understanding of what the state ,
county , city , and private 'institutions of
a.charitable or correctional nature are
doing. Abuses never llourish in the
light , and it should be the business of
such a board to turn on the light , and let
a healthful public opinion do the rest.
For the starting of the board this will be
sufficient. After it has proved its use
fulness it may be found expedient to give
it other powers , but at the first the only
legal powers it should have should be
those of inspection , recommendation and
public reporting. The creation of a
board of this character will be a step in
the direction of securing a more just ,
humane , and economical ad-ministration
of public charity and correction.
Protection to the live stock interests of
Nebraska is one of the most important
subjects that will claim your attention.
Stringent laws should be enacted to pre
vent the spreading of infectious or conta
gious diseases among our domestic ani
mals , as well as Jaws conferring the
power to create and enforce quarantine
against the introduction into our state of
cattle affected with the disease known as
pleuro-pueuuipnia , or those affected with
Texas or Spanish fever , and against all
domestic animals that may be affected
with any disease thut is infectious or con
That these laws may be intelligently
carried into effect , there should be creat
ed the office of state veterinary surgeon ,
and also a board of stock commissioners ,
to consist of not less than three persons ,
the duty and power of said officers to be
thoroughly defined.
The great volume of business transacted
in this department during the past two
years is fully aud clearly set forth in the
detailed reporf of Hon. A. G. Kendall ,
commissioner of public lands and build
ings , whose industry and valuable ser
vices to the stute I cannot too highly
commend. His report is filled with use
ful information.

years 1S83 and 1881 , will be found of in

An application of the Nebraska Stock
Yards company , of Lincoln , to lease cer
tain described saline lands in Lancaster
county , has been reported to me from tbe
board of public lands and buildings , and
is referred to you for such uctiou as you
may deem for the best interests of the
state. ,
The property belonging to the per
manent school fund , and known as the
Gillespie property" , is in bad condition ,
and is returning but small .revenue to the
fund considering its value.
Your attention called to the 308 lots
in tbe city of Lincoln owned by the state
now occupied by private parties'and from ,
which the stale derives 110 rental what
The total amount of temporary school
funds disbursed since the organization of
the state is $2,309,423.79 , aud of this
amount $1,247,040.57 , or over one-half
of the entire amount , has been disbursed
during the past five years.
The following statement will show , the
revenue of the temporary school fund
from educational lands :
Dec. 1 , 1884 , there were under lease
953,638.19 acres educational lands , ap
praised at . $2,375,744.29 , and beanhg an
annual rental of $160,919.52 , at an aver
age valuation of $2.49 per acre. There
were under sale 461,407.14 acres of edu
cational lauds , the unpaid principal of
which is bearing 6 per cent on $3,112-
542.56 , and amounting to $186.752,55.
There were $1,100,267.35 of the perma
nent.funds invested in securities , the an
nual interest on which is $84,585.38 ,
making in all a temporary fund from
land receipts alone of $432,257.45 per
annum. There are still vacant and un-
appraised 1,478,086.13 acres of common
school lauds , or about one-half of the
original grant.
Results arrived at under the present
law have been placed before you. It now
remains for you to decide what shall be
the future policy of the state regarding
this great trust ; and as to what that
policy should be you will find wide diver
sity of opinion. Here is room for your
best thought. The entire subject of
school land legislation is one to be con
sidered with reference only to the best in
terests of the school fund. The consti
tution provides that our educational lands
shall not be sold for less than $7.00 an
acre nor for less than their appraised
value. The legislature has the power to
increase the minimum p'ricc of these
lauds. This question , as well as that-of
striking out the sale clause , or if sales'
are to be continued of striking out the
private sale clause , and the further ques
tion of some method of appraisement in
matter of sales whereby the school fund
may obtain a more just valuation upon
its lands , will come before you for deci
Continuing the lease system , with
proper restrictions , my own judgment
woufd favor retaining the title ol all edu
cational lands in the state for at leist a
period of twenty-five years , that the
great advance in value of realty incident
to the rapid development of the state
ma } ' be added to the school fund.
Humors have been put in circulation
that were calculated to reflect on those
upon whom the duty rests of sacredly
guarding the interests of our common
school fund. My judgment , and my be
lief is , that the law has been faithfully
executed , and that no state can show her
school lands and school funds in better
shape than those of Nebraska to-day.
If , however , there remains reasonable
ground for a belief as to the mal-admin-
istration of this trust , then it becomes
your bounden duty to examine into the
matter , to the end that doubt may be set
at rest.
The power is yours under the consti
tution to establish reasonable maximum
rates of charges for the transportation of
passengers and freight on the different
railroads in this state. Our largely in
creased , and still rapidly increasing pop
ulation , would seem to indicate that the
time had come when the passenger traffic
of .Nebraska had reached such proportions
tions as , that without injustice to the
railroads , the people might ask for a re
duced passenger rate. 1 would , there
fore , recommend the enactment of a law
providing for a maximum passenger rate
of three cents p r mile , and that such
law be made applicable to the several
lines of railroad in the state , with refer
ence to their ability to earn money.
While the legislation above referred to
will afford a measure of relief , the ques
tion of chief interest to the people of an
agricultural state like our own is that
of rates.for the transportation of their
produce and live stock. The demand for
legislation of some kind looking to tbe
regulation of freights is general , and this
demand should not be unheeded by you.
The power placed in your hands by the
people is to be used wisely and consider
ately. You will not be led away by
clamor , but you will do as your best
judgment may dictate , considering all
interests involved. The question of the
proper adjustment of freight rates is one
most Uiirfeult. It presents features so
varied aud intricate that men unskilled
in the details of railroad management
may well hesitate to offer advice in the
matter. There are those who advocate
the enactment of laws establishing maxi
mum freight rates. In respect
to this my observation has been ,
that when such legislation has been
enacted it has proved unsatisfactory to
the people , and has failed to accomplish
the end desired. If it is true that under
our constitution you cannot create a
board of railroad commissiouers , then 1
have no plan to recommend , as I believe
the relief demanded is to be had through
a board of commissioners properly con
stituted , and clothed with power to ar
bitrate and decide between the people
and the railroads upon existing matters
of difference.

An Accident All Around.
A most ridiculous scene occurred at a
church in Newcastle. A policeman waa
passing the church as a gentleman cuine
out. The man jokingly accosted the
policeman and said he was yrauted in
side , meaning that the minister would
be glad to have him turn from the error
of his ways , aud seek the truth and en
joy a peace that passeth all understand
ing. The stupid policeman thought
there was some trouble in the church , so
he went in. The sexton , seeing a po
liceman , was anxious to give him a favor
able seat , so he said , " Come right in
here , " and he took him to a pew and
waved his hand , as much as to say ,
" Help yourself. " There was another
man in the pew , a deacon \rith a sinister
expression as the policeman thought ,
and he supposed that was the man thsy
wanted arrested , so he tapped the dea
con on the arm and told liim to come
along. The deacon turned pale and
edged along as though to get away-when
the policeman took him by the collar
and jerked i.im out into the aisle. The
deacon struggled , thinking the police
man was crazy , and tried to get away ,
but he was drugged along. .Many of the
congregation thought the deacon had
been deing something -wrong , and some
of them got behind the deacon and
helped the offiuer fire him out Arriving
at the lock-up , the policeman saw the
man who told him he was wanted in the
church , and asked him what the charge
was against the deacon , and he didn't
know , BO the sexton was appealed to ,
and he didn't know , and finally the pris
oner was asked what it was all about ,
and he didn't know. The policeman
was asked what he arrested the man for ,
and he didn't know , and after awhile the
matter was explained , and the police
man , who had to arrest soiuebody , took
th'e man into custody who told he was
wanted in the church , and lie \vas fined
$5 and costs. He says he will never try
to convert a policeman again , and the
policeman says hewill never go to
church again if they get to knocking
each other down with hymn-books.

He called himself a commercial trav

pieces of luggage in the keeping of a

np a pen and was registering his name
when a good-sized sample of the cimex
lectularius made its way nlowly across
the page of the register. The drum
mer stopped suddenly , and , after taking
a long look at the insect , he cried *
