Meeting Held at Which Ylgorom
Protests Are Made— Xewi of
City Engineer Cappelen has aban
doned the tunnel system adopted at
the last meeting of the city council,
for the care of all electric wires in the
center of the city. Mr. Cappelen's
action was owing to mechanical dif
ficulties which could not be overcome.
The plan abandoned provided for an
underground tunnel three feet wide
and six feet high, in which could be
accommodated an immense number of
cables and wires. In the place of this
system, the city engineer has pro
vided another scheme, which will cost
far less, and at the same time will
surmount the engineering obstacles
found in the original scheme. The
tunnel plan would Interfere with the
gas piping system and that company
has the right of way.
The new system which the city en
gineer will construct, will be composed
of terra cofta piping, and while not
as extensive, by far, as the original
scheme, will still provide for an im
mense amount of wiring, and will
have the merit of being cheaper. It is
believed the new system will remove
the last objection of the howlers. City
Engineer Cappelen yesterday wired to
the East to secure bids for the ma
terial, and will immediately com
mence the work of construction.
The abandonment of the tunnel pro
position also settles to a large ex
tent the delay in paving the business
thoroughfares, and this morning both
asphalt companies will start crews of
men at work laying concrete.
There will not be time enough in
which to consider the matter of the
conduits, on account of the arrange
ment whereby the paving companies
have been allowed to proceed upon
one side of the thoroughfares. Mayor
Pratt stated that he might call a
special meeting of the council today
to consider the bond matter, in order
to push matters along. City Engineer
Cappelen has sufficient funds on hand I
to carry him along until the money i
from the proposed bond sale can be
realized, at which time the city comp
troller can reimburse the engineer's
The question of immediate relief
from the present condition of the
streets is not the only thing which is
worrying the business men of the city.
The problem of uncompleted pavement
at the time of the fall carnival and
encampment is what is worrying the
merchants at the present time. Dozens
of the business men have been asked
to subscribe liberally to the carnival
fund, but there is no encouragement
in doing so In the face of present con
ditions. A meeting of many citizens
was held late yesterday afternoon with
W. L. Harris at the New England, and
some heated remarks were indulged in.
There were present among others: S.
E. Olson, Jacob Barge, J. R. Gordon,
J. R. Hofflin, C. S. Brackett, Messrs.
Bintliff and many others. Aid. Alex
ander and Drew were also present.
The gentlemen were unanimously of
the opinion that unless the work was
commenced immediately in order that
the streets could be completed before
the carnival, there was no use in put
ting up a Ot of money to construct
costly floats, and in defraying the ex
penses of the carnival and encamp
ment. The present delay was talked
over, and on the whole the situation
looked very discouraging until City
Engineer Cappelen dropped in and
shed a few sunbeams. The city engin
eer announced that he had turned over
a portion of Sixth street to the paving
companies, and that in all probability
he could turn over three-fourths of
Fifth street and a portion of First ave

Mayor Pratt, City Attorney Simpson,

discussed the grave questions that now
confront the city, partly for their own
benefit and partly for the benefit of
Comptroller Nye who returned yester

CONVENTIONS WILL NOT AGREE.
Not Much Hope That the Populists
And the Silver Men Will Act
ST. LOUIS, Mo., July 16.— According
to interviews tonight with a number
of prominent Populists and silver men,
the concensus of opinion seemed to be
that the conventions which will meet
here on July 22 will not work in
unison as expected. They will be un
able to agree as to the selection of a
presidential candidate. Silver men
seem to be unanimous for the nominee
of the Chicago convention, while ths
Populists now here want a distinctive
ly Populistic candidate. However, It
is too early to predict what the con
ventions will do, for only a few of the
large number of delegates expected
"The Middle of the Road" Populists
are making a strong fight against
either an Indorsement of Bryan and
the Chicago platform or the nomination
of the Nebraskan on a Populist plat
form. They are much encouraged
over the action of the Arkansas Pop
ulist convention which yesterday re
fused to endorse Bryan and they pro
pose to crystalize the anti-Bryan sen
timent by a public meeting of the "mid
dle of the road" followers Saturday af
ternoon when the campaign
against him will be opened.
All delegates and Populists who
want a separate ticket and
an Independent Populist organization
are expected to be present. Chairman
Taubeneck of tho People's Party na
tional committee heads the "Middle of
the Road" section and with him are as
sociated those who signed the man
ifesto issued after the Republican con
vention declaring for Teller for pres
Sergeant-atArms McDowell who
went to Little Rock to present an argu
ment against the indorsement of Bryan
returned today and reported success.
The proposition presented by Mr. Mc-
Dowell to the convention was In the
form of an address reviewing the two
sides of the question of Indorsement of
the Democrats on one set of electors,
order to restore silver to its lawful
place and make a combination with
the Democrats, the Populists must do
one of two things:
First— lndorse the Democratic ticket
nominated at Chicago and merge into
the Democratic party; or,
Second — To nominate a ticket of their
own and enter into an agreement with
the Democratic ticket. It is stated in
The address then says:
"If the flrst policy is pursued the People's
party will lose its identity and become an
annex to the Democratic party. Whenever
one party indorses the national ticket of an
other it has no further excuse to exist. All
the state, legislative and county candidates
in the People's party, with the exception of a
few Western states, will have to resign, be
cause it would be impossible for the Populist
candidates to make a fight for their local
tickets when the party nationally indorses the
"On the other hand, suppose the Populist
and silver parties consolidate and pursue the
policy of nominating a ticket of' their own,
and unite with the Democrats^ on electors,
what will then Be their status before the
country? In the place of anne&.to the Dem
ocratic party they will become an ally. It
will preserve the People's party organiza
tion for future use, and by making an alli
ance with the bolting Republicans the Popu
lists will outnumber the Democrats and
make them a third party at the polls next
November. If the combination ticket is
successful the Populists will have either the
president or vice president, and will also be
in a position to demand an equal share of
the federal patronage, including the cab
inet and foreign appointments."
Mr. McDowell, Mr. Taubeneck and others
associated with them take the ground that
party organization must be preserved. Tau
beneck will make a hard fight on this line,
but it is the opinion of some of the best in
formed Populists now here that he has wait
ed too long to show his hand and that he
will be inthe minority. The Teller manifesto
seems to have proven a boomerang to Taube
PICTURESQUE MR. WAITE.
He Will Cat Verj Little Figure at
DENVER, Colo., July 16.— The Pic
turesque Ex-Governor David H. Waite
will be a feature of the St. Louis Pop
ulist convention, but he will be there
only as a contestant for a seat. The
leaders of the regular delegation take
exception to the reports which have
gone abroad that Mr. Waite is at the
head of the Colorado delegation.
Nothing, they say, is farther from the
truth, as he is not even a delegate.
At the Populist state convention
held in Denver July 4, he sought for
admission to it as the head of a Den
ver delegation and claimed to have
been selected at a mass convention.
The committee on credentials rejected
his claims by a vote of 39 to 9 and the
convention, without a dissenting vote,
sustained the credentials committee.
Governor Waite then walked out of the
state convention at the head of his re
jected delegates, all from Arapahoe
county, and went to another hall where
they resolved themselves into another
mass convention and w«?n.t through the
form of appointing delegates to St.
Louis for the state. Only the rejected
delegates, who were from a single
county, participated in this convention.
Governor Waite professes to be for
Bryan for president, but his opponents
in the party say the claim is a pretense
to win favor with the dominant mem
bers of the national body and to help
him to the seats for which he and the
other members of his delegation are
Straight Out Silver Platform Adopted
at Little Rock.
LITTLE ROCK, Rrk., July 16.-The
Populist state convention got down to
business this morning. A resolution was
offered instructing the delegates to St
Louis to vote for a "middle of the road"
Populist for president, in case Mr
Bryan would not accept the Omaha
platform. The resolution was referred
without reading. District delegates to
the national convention were selected,
and a voluminous platform was adopt
ed, denouncing both the Republican and
Democratic parties; favoring the free
and unlimited coinage of silver without
waiting for the aid or consent of any

GOLD STANtfi&D TICKET.
Comptroler Efkels Strong!) in Favor
WASHINGTON,' JuIy 16.— Mr. Eckels,
the comptroller of 'the 1 currency, has re
turned to Washington from the Chi
cago convention. "He is an earnest
bellver in the wisdom of putting a gold
standard Democratic 'national ticket ln
the field as a metn« of accomplishing
the defeat of the free' silver candidates,
and he believes that this will be done.
Mr. Eckels said today:
"I believe the nominees of the Chicago
convention ought to be defeated because
of the principles enunciated ln the plat
form upon whlah they stand, and
which they unqualifiedly endorsed.
These principles, if crystallized into law
would, in my mind, inevitably work
irreparable loss to every class of citi
zens, and cause conditions of distress
on every hand. They are not In accord
with either the history, the teachings
or the traditions of Democrats. The
point of interest with Democrats who
reiect the action of the convention
ought to be now the largest and most
effective majority can be secured
against the ticket named.
"My own view is that the naming of
candidates of high character, and the
framing of a platform, sound in every
particular would aid to this end. It
would! afford an opportunity which
otherwise would be wanting to discuss
this question before Democratic audi
ences, by Democratic speakers. The
educational work most needed is with
in the Democratic faith. It would al
so give the Democratic press something
tangible to advocate.
"Up to this point, the merit of the
question has not general been discus
sed. There has been more of denunci
ation of men than of consideration of
economic principles. A Democratic
ticket will double the number of those
who will compel attention to the merit
of the question and force the propon
ents of the free coinage of silver and
its accompanying vagaries to meet
economic facts and financial history
with something more than histerlcal
oratory and passionate misstatements.
A four months' canvass, carried out
upon educational lines, with Demo
cratic speakers and papers attacking
the Chicago platform, will lose to the
candidates standing upon it, many
thousands of votes, who otherwise
might through lack of knowledge or
Indifference vote for them. It will not
cause any Democrat who Is determin
ed to vote for the Republican
nominees not to do so. It will simply
give those who otherwise might vote
wrong, the opportunity not to do so.
The larger the contribution of Demo
cratic votes to the defeat of the Chi
cago nominees, the better In the end
for the usefulness of the party."

"Paramount Issue of tbe Campaign
Again Discussed by the Nomi
nee of Chicago Convention.
KANSAS CITT, Mo., July 16.— Ten
thousand people howled themselves in
to a frenzy of enthusiasm over William
J. Bryan, the Democratic presidential
nominee, tonight. The cheering began
at least an hour before Mr. Bryan was
advertised to appear, and it was kept
up with an occasional lull, until the
distinguished free silver advocate came
into view. Then the throng broke out
with redoubled energy and gave him
an ovation that was not unlike that
which he received after his famous
speech at the Chicago convention. Hon.
Henry S. Julian, chairman of the Jack
son county central committee, Intro
duced the silver orator. When the
cheering ceased, Mr. Bryan said:
"I stated to the committee that I
would not make a political speech, but
in the presence of so many interested
people, I am afraid I wlil be compelled
to break my promise for a few mo
ments. We are entering upon a mem
orable campaign. The platforms have
been adopted. Two great parties have
placed their candidates in the field,
and in a little while you, as citizens,
will be called upon to discuss the is
sues involved. The platform adopted
at Chicago presents the Issues which
are paramount in this campaign.
It is a Democratic platform ln every
sentence, word and syllable. (Ap
plause.) It is a Democratic platform
that carries the party back to the
days of its founder, Thomas Jefferson,
and to its most courageous defender,
Andrew Jackson. There never was a
time when the real principles of true
Democracy were dearer to the hearts
of American people than they are to
day, and It Is because that platform
appeals to the hearts of the American
people that you find them rising in its
support from the Paciflc ocean clear
down to the places where the waves of
the Atlantic beat.
"It is not the platform of a section.
It is the platform of our common
country and appeals to those who love
mankind to rise in its defense. It
breathes the spirit of the Declaration of
Independence. It represents those funda
mental truths upon which all true
-government must rest. It proclaims
the doctrine of civil liberty. It is Demo
cratic from the first sentence to the
last, in that broader sense In which
Democracy appeals to all who believe
in a government 'of the people, by the
people and for the people.' (Applause.)
"From time to time questions arise,
but the principlesof Democracy are true
in all the times and climes. We simply
apply to new conditions the principles
which are as eternal as the hills and
this time our platform has declared
PARAMOUNT PUBLIC QUESTION
is the restoration of the gold and silver coin
age of th» -constitution. (Wild applause). All
other questions must stand back until this
great question is solved. Four years ago we
went into, ra campaign where the great divid
ing issue yptte the tariff question. The tariff
question is. a question of taxation and the sub
ject qf taxation is always with us. We may
settle it now and again and again, but while
there is a government the subject of taxation
will be ever present. But there are times
when the acts of this nation upon its finan
cial policy may determine the welfare of the
people; not only of this nation, but of the
world; no only -now, but for years and de
cades yet to come.
"We have reached a crisis in our monetary
legislation. There are those who would chain
this nation to the gold Standard, and while
there be those who would fasten a European
yoke upon the necks of American freemen,
there is but one question, and that is can
this nation govern itself and make its' own
laws for its own people? (Wild applause).
"In speaking with emphasis upon thi3
subject, I beg of you not to think that
we who believe in the free coinage of
silver lack charity for those who dif
fer from us. There are great men
good men, who do not agree to the re
storation of silver. Let us not speak
of them in terms of denunciation. My
heart is sad tonight because of the news
received this afternoon that one of the
most illustrious Democrats of the East
who differed from us honestly upon this
great question, has suddenly passed
away, and I know that when I an
nounce that Ex-Gov. William E. Rus
sell was this afternoon suddenly touch
ed by the finger of death, you will
agree with me in leaping across the
differences that separate us, and bow
ing with reverence and respect over
his lifeless body.
"I beg to impress upon you that you
have an equal right; that the people
of any section of this land have a right
to make your influence felt in dealing
with the destinies of this republic. We
have our homes and our families to con
sider and they have none to protect
them but us, and if we fail in our duty
their interests must be neglected I
believe, to the very bottom of my heart,
and the belief touches every fiber of
my being, that until we restore silver
to its equal place by the side of gold,
to the place it occupied for so many
years, so many centuries and so many
ages, there can be no lasting prosperity
brought back to the homes of those who
toil. (Deafening applause.)
"But I am not going to discuss this ques
tion (cries of 'Go on'). I want to appeal to
you tto Jtudy it for yourselves and to enable
you to siuoy U intelligently, and for that
purpose I want to suggesx £2 things for you
to think about. The tell you that *old
standard is the standard of civilization. fTia T
is their argument. If they tell you that let
me suggest an answer that is complete.' If
the gold standard is the standard of civiliza
tion, why is It that the United States the
leader In the civilization of the world, has
never declared for the gold standard? (Great
appplause.) If they admit that the double
standard is better than a single standard—
a single gold standard, and tell us that this
nation is unable to sustain it without the aid
and consent of other nations, we hurl back
defiance at them and tell them that this na
tion is great enough to legislate for its own
people without waiting for the aid or consent
of any other nation on earth. (Cheers and
applause). Which course will they take?
They dare not take either course. They dare
not meet the issue on the money question,
because there is no ground upon which they
"I have no fear of the verdict of the peo

we great enough to go to South America and

At the conclusion of his speech, a cyclone
of applause swept up from the multitude.
The band struck up a lively air and the en
thusiastic admirers of the famous Nebraska
citizen dispersed to their homes. Mr. Bryan
and party will leave at 10:30 tomorrow morn
ing for Lincoln.
Mr. Bryan Talked ln a Number of
ST. LOUIS, July 16.— Mr. and Mrs.
Bryan left Salem early this morning
on their way to Lincoln. At East St.
Lculs the train was met by a big crowd
and Mr. Bryan said a few words. At i
St. Louis the party stopped for break
fast, and again Mr. Bryan responded
to the calls for a speech.. At Vande
venter station, in the western part of
the city, Hon. Richard P. Bland board
ed the train to accompany the party
as far as Jefferson city.
When the train reached Washington,
Mo., Mr. Bland introduced Mr. Bryan
to a large number of people gathered :
at that place, saying that he was to j
be the next president of the United
States. "I served with him for four
years in congress," he said, "and he
has been just as true to the silver cause
and the people as I have been, and if
I had been consulted about naming the
candidate of the Democratic Rarty for
president of the United States, this
gentleman would have been my choice."
The assembled Missourians cheered
the appearance of Mr. Bryan lustily.
He acknowledged the ovation paid him
with a bow, and said: "I do not con
sider my nomination as a personal
compliment at all, nor do I desire you
to consider that in my nomination the
convention reflected upon Mr. Bland.
If this nomination had gone to Mr.
Bland, it would have gone to the man
who for 20 years has worked to keep
alive the silver cause, and in the hour of
its victory will be entitled to more cred
it than any other living man. (Great ap
plause.) Circumstances, not merit, have
decided this nomination, and all that
I can do will be no more than Mr.
Bland would have ddne under the same
circumstances, if he had been the
choice of the convention, instead of
myself; he would have >had no more
loyal supporter in the nation than I
would have been. I thank you for this
opportunity of meeting you." (Applause
Mr. Bland went back to the car in
which the Bryan party were seated
and congratulated Mr. Bryan. He told
that gentleman that his election was
certain, and in referring to the recent
fight, said: "I really felt like some
body had lifted a load off my should
Mr. Bryan was embarrassed for a
moment, and stuttered back: "I — I — I —
did that same myself."
Mr. Bland noting the evident embar
rassment of Mr. Bryan, gave that gen
tleman time to collect his thoughts j
by entering into a conversation with
At Jefferson City, Bryan was tender
ed a big reception. The train made a I
stop of 35 minutes and Mr. Bryan was |
driven in Gov. Stone's buggy to a plaza
near by and addressed some 3,000 peo
ple. He was introduced by Bland.
Lincoln Will Spread Itself This
LINCOLN, Neb., July 16.— Plans for
the reception Friday night to William
J. Bryan are maturing rapidly. It is
now more fully realized that there is
destined to be an immense throng in
Lincoln on that date, and the prospects
are bright for a demonstration of mam
moth proportions. Thousands of let
ters are at the postoffice awaiting the
arrival of Mr. Bryan. There Is also
a rabbit's foot attached to a postal
card. Within a radius of 100 miles of
Lincoln, tickets will be sold Friday,
July 17, with the return limit Satur
day, July 18. Beyond this limit tickets
will be sold today and Friday, with re
turn limit Saturday.
The Burlington, Rock Island and
Elkhorn roads expect to do a large
business from Omaha, trains being run
to suit everybody almost hourly. Man
agers of twenty-five different bands
have been heard from, all of which
will take part in the demonstration.
The Bryan enthusiasm has apparent
ly obscured the fa^t that another dis
tinguished citizen of Nebraska has
been similarly honored. Rev. Charles
E. Bentley, the presidential nominee of
the new national party, which first
flung its banner to the breeze at Pitts
burg, resides, with his family, in a
modest house at the Northwest corner
of Twenty-eighth and M streets.
Rev. Mr. Bentley will participate In
the Bryan reception Friday evening,
and on Saturday afternoon goes to St.
Louis, to confer with a number of
party leaders. From St. Louis he goes
to Columbus, Ohio, to attend the na
tional party state convention, which
meets there next Wednesday. Rev.
Mr. Bentley intends to take the stump
during the campaign, and will make
speeches in many parts of this country.
MR. MERRIAM ONE.

Namad by Hanna,
CLEVELAND, O, July 16.— The na
tional Republican executive committee

and appointed a committee consisting
of Hanna, Durbin, of Indiana; Dawes,
of Illinois; Payne, of Wisconsin, and
Heath to select offices for the commit
tee in Chicago and New York. This
committee will be in Chicago Monday
and provide headquarters in that city
The most important decision reached
by the committee, however, was to "
visit Maj. MeKinley at Canton this
afternoon, to lay before him the plans
that have been outlined, and ask for
his opinion. The party left for Canton
at. 3:15. The utmost secrecy has been
observed throughout the meeting of

been taken relative to the appointment
of a ninth member of the executive
committee. It is reported that the com
mittee while at Canton will make every
possible effort to induce Mr. MeKinley
to make a trip through the West or at
least deliver some speeches in that sec
tion o' the country. -Some of the
Western committeemen are strongly In
favor of having the campaign opened
in Omaha or Lincoln, Neb.
HOW TOJEED BABY.
Prevalent Cholera Infantum
SICKNESS DUE MORE TO FAULTY
FEEDING THAN TO HEAT.
May be Prevented by Putting Child
on a Diet of Lactated Food.
"On the 31st of October, 1894," write*
Mrs. Thomas J. Jones, of Whitehall,
N. V., "I was blessed with triplets. I
was unable to nurse them, so had to
use artificial foods. I flrst tried cow's
milk, and after that three brands oil
baby foods, but my babies did not
seem to do well on them. A neighbor
who had used lactated food advised me
to give it a trial. I did so. .
"I could see a change ln my babies
at once. They rested better at night.
Before I used your lactated food, I did!
not know what a night's sleep was
since the babies were born, but after
using it two days, I was able to do all
my work without any help or trouble.
"In six months they gained seven,
eight, and eight and a half pounds
ONE OF THE BRIGHT TRIPLETS.
I could not recommend your lactated
food too highly, and hope other moth
ers will be helped as I have been with,
your lactated food, which I know they,
will, if they use the food."
Mothers are often brought to tha
verge of despair during hot weather
because baby refuses to take food ot*
throws it up. One of the marked su
periorities of lactated food over other
infant foods is repeatedly spoken of iK
letters of mothers from all over the
country. Lactated food Is taken eager
ly, more often greedily, by babies who
are deprived of their mother's milk,
and in hosts of Instances it is evidently
preferred by them to breast milk when
the latter has beceme thin and poor
either from long nursing or hot
Cholera infantum, that Is now rag
ing, is best prevented by lactated
food. This dread disease is due more
to faulty feeding than to heat.
Lactated food is used in all the large
homes for children throughout the
United States, and in families that pos
sess every means for securing the
best for their children; and yet it is
easily withn the reach of the modest
households in the land.
Mysterious Suicide at tbe Snwyew
House — The Tax Levy.
Ollie C. Dwyer, a resident of this
city, committed suicide at the Sawyer
i house early yesterday morning by tak
| ing an ounce of strychnine. No causa
j can be ascribed for the deed. He came
: in shortly before one o'clock and was
assigned to room 81. Before retiring
he asked for a pitcher of water and
asked that he be allowed to sleep
through the day, as he was very tired.
j No one disturbed him until evening
; when it was noticed something was

I was found lying in bed cold in death,
t suicide having evidently occurred,
I shortly after he retired. Coroner Fre
ligh was summoned and will look into
the matter this morning. Dwyer was
about 26 years of age and has resided
-with his parents on William street. He
had some letters and papers in his
pockets but nothing that would throw
any light on his rash deed.
The board of county commissioners
did not complete its labors Wednesday
evening but adjourned until Monday
Edward Crotty, a son of James Crotty, was
locked up yesterday, the supposition being
that he is of unsound mind. He will prob
ably be examined today unless he shows
signs of improvement.
