FENDER JUDGE IS NAMED DY THE
18 LOVE FEAST THROUGHOUT
The Populists Named Judge Graves In
the Afternoon and the Democrats at
Night He Made a Speech Attacking
the Tariff Question.
[ From Tucsdny'a Dally. ]
Judge Guy T. Graves of 1'umlor was
nominated by populists'and democrats
of the Third congressional district In
Nebraska in Norfolk lust night. The
populists ut the city hull nominated
him in the afternoon , and the demo
crats at the Auditorium nominated htm
at night. There was no opposition. It
was a love feast.
The name of Judge Graves was
placed before the convention by Hon.
P. E. McKHHp , the candidate of two
years ago. Mr. McKllllp made a
speech In which he eulogized Judge
Graves as a square and able man , who
has repeatedly carried a republican
district in the Judicial race.
The nomination was seconded by
Attorney Moody of West Point.
F. M. Carlton of Leigh , as a ropro-
tentative of the populist congressional
convention , announced that he came
to announce that the populists had
nominated Judge Graves.
The nomination was then made by
acclamation. Judge Graves was es
corted to the platform amid cheers.
In thanking the convention ho said he
thought the time had come when the
public corporations should be the ser
vant of the people instead of the people
ple servants. He said that he believed
in railroad regulation which will reg
ulate , and that if laws fall , he believes
In government ownership. He at
tacked the tariffs that protect lumber ,
salt and sugar trusts , especially the
lumber trust. "It is time we reduce
the tariff walls and let lumber pour
in , " he said.
He said he has never ridden on a
pass and that he does not know that
Judge Boyd has.
The democratic congressional con
vention met in the Auditorium at 2:30 :
yesterday afternoon. After the dele
gates had assembled , something less
than 100 strong , and all In their shirt
sleeves , the Hadar band , which had
been engaged by the Norfolk Commer
cial club for the occasion , played a
Chairman Dan V. Stephens of Fre
mont called the convention to order
and Secretary John B. Donovan read
the call. Douglas Cones moved that
the reading of the call be dispensed
with , but one delegate said he had
never seen a call , and wanted It read ,
so It was read.
Hon. Patrick Emmett McKllllp of
Humphrey , candidate two years ago ,
was introduced as the temporary
chairman. Mr. McKlllip was received
"It is too hot to make or to hear a
long speech , " he said. "So I shall be
brief. But all I shall say , will be of
"During past months , democracy's
future looked dark. But today we
see the dawning light. The principles
of democracy have been exonerated.
Today republicans all over this nation
are standing on principles put forth
by democracy In years gone by.
Refers to Bryan.
Mr. McKilllp's reference to Bryan
was applauded. "Today , " he said ,
"our leader is attracting more atten
tion around the world than any other
"Mr. Bryan , though twice defeated ,
has done more during the past two
years to dominate American politics
than any other man. And when the
time comes that Bryan and his lieu
tenants throughout the length and
breadth of this land , shall rule , we will
all be proud to be Nebraskans. "
Mr. McKllllp thanked the democrats
and populists of this district for their
efforts in his behalf In 1904. He stat
ed that It was a magnificent perform
ance , in that it rolled back 10,000 votes
for him over the head of the ticket.
He declared that half the effort this
year means victory.
Neal H. Mnpes of Colfax was made
temporary secretary , with A. W. Smith
of Cumlng as assistant.
The chair named the following com
mittee on credentials : J. H. Johannes ,
Platte ; M. C. Garrett , Madison ; Jo
seph LaMore , Thurston ; Chas. W.
Reynolds , Wayne ; W. E. Powers ,
The committee on resolutions was
named as follows : Edgar Howard ,
Platte ; Dan V. Stephens , Dodge ;
Douglas Cones , Pierce ; Harry Miller ,
Stanton ; John Wachter. Pierce.
Planks Upon Which Judge Graves Will
Stand for Election.
Following was the platform adopted
last night by the democratic congres
sional convention :
The democracy of the Third congres
sional district of Nebraska reaffirms
the cardinal principles of thn party H3
enunciated by Jefferson , defended by
Jackson and now championed by Wil
liam J. Bryan.
We voice a message of love to the
great leader of democracy now upon
the &eas and hono'\nrd bound and be
speak for him at his Homecoming n
welcome as warm as Ins own need
heart wherever It extends for the
cause of humanity.
In the record of the last national
congress we find no act worthy the
commendation of American people ,
save only such legislation as was in
harmony with the demand of a na
tional democracy during recent years ,
and wo point to the fact that In every
good work of the congress the uay
was not only blazed by democratic
platforms but the work was performed
under direction of democratic leaders.
Wo stand linn upon that govern
mental foundation stone which Is an
over present protest against every
form of legalized theft under the name
of a protective tariff. Wo nillnu that
a protective tariff has never brought
anything better than n llnanclal bur
den to the people of this agricultural
district ; and wo hero give pledge that
the nominee of this convention shall
bo armed by the people with it vote
In congress , ho will use that vote In
favor of free lumber , free coal , free
barbed wire , free Iron and steel and
all agricultural Implements. We are
opposed to any and every effort look-
ing toward any system or asset cur
rency and Insist that the power * to
Issue all lawful money IH Inherent In
the national government. We applaud
every intelligent effort to curb by law
the greed of the public service corpo
rations. Wo pledge the nominee of
this convention to cast his vote , If
elected , In favor of regulation of Inter ,
state freight and passenger charges ,
by railroads , telegraph , telephone ,
sleeping car and express companies.
We particularly give pledge to the
people of this district that the nomi
nee of this convention will , if elected ,
work and vote for such legislation ns
will drive out of business that greatest
of all pirates upon the sea of agricul
ture , the national grain trust , and
drive to the penitentiary doors all
members of that trust who have been
instrumental In the spoliation of this
grain producing people by grain trust
methods. The democratic party Is the
foe of fraud wherever found and re
fuses to regard It less than fraud when
committed within the party household.
We endorse the demand of Mr. Bry-
in for the resignation of the Illinois
member of the democratic national
committee on the ground that his elec
tion was secured by a fraud so prob-
iblo as to admit ot no controversy.
We agree with Mr. Bryan that the
democratic party can not successfully
attack fraud while sheltering within
Its folds a national commltteeman
whoso certificate of election bears the
sign and the seal of fraud. We believe
the only true solution of the railroad
rate problem lies through the ultimate
ownership of railroads by the people.
While favoring the regulation of
freight and passenger rates by statute ,
we declare for the principle of public
ownership at the earliest possible date ,
and specifically for the Immediate gov
ernment ownership and operation of
sulllclent railroad mileage , extending
from the Atlantic to the Pacific , and
from the Gulf of Mexico to the Great
Lakes , to enable the government to
control the rate situation and to pre
vent extoctlon and discrimination on
the part of private owners of inter
The democracy of the Third congres
sional district finds encouragement
and inspiration in the work of the
democratic state convention recently
assembled in Lincoln. We congratu
late the people of Nebraska on the
opportunity offered to support at the
polls the magnificent men named as
candidates and the platform of true
American principles proclaimed by
The nominee of this convention is
In himself a right sort of platform as
touching the free pass evil. He takes
the democratic position that there can
Lie no difference between a pass bribe
and a money bribe , and he has lived
true to that position. During all the
years of his service as judge of the
district court his pocket has never
been polluted by a political or other
kind of free railroad pass a record In
striking contrast with the record of
liis republican opponent In the present
campaign who brazenly prides himself
upon the number of free passes which
ho has solicited , procured and used
while wearing the robes of the magis

The following resolutions committee

lowing Is the platform adopted :
We congratulate ourselves and the
people at largo on the fact that popu
list principles have become so pop
ular and respectable that the old par
ties are forced to Incorporate them in
their platforms. The only question
now is to nominate good men as most
platforms are written alike.
We still adhere to those principles
known as the Omaha platform , which
can never die. They have grown until
they are received by all parties.
Recognizing the fact that In the
multitude of counsel there Is wisdom ,
wo deem the representatives of the
people in congress as having more wis
dom than a few supreme court judges.
We therefore stamp our disapproval
on declaring any law unconstitutional
that Is not concurred in by the whole
We favor an income tax.
We favor a domestic parcels post.
Wo favor a postal savings bank.

Dr. Drynnt Speaks.
Dr. F. A. tlrynnt of Norfolk made a
speech before the convention In which
he declared the government should
own the trusts Instead of the trusts
owning the government , and said the
railroads should be owned especially
the trunk lines , by the government.
Dr. Bryant declared that It Is Im
possible to curb or to control the
trusts or railroads , and that govern

FROM NORFOLKTO COLORADO
Mrs. Matrau Describes Beautiful Spot
in the Mountains.
The following letter was received
from Mrs. H. C. Matrau of Norfolk ,
who Is spending the summer in Colorado
rado mountains :
Slmwnee , Colo. , Aug. 18. A trip up
the Platte canon Is one of the grand
trips provided by the Colorado and
Southern railroad for the summer tour
ist. It is not as well known or as fa
mous as the Silver Plume trip over the
wonderful Georgetown Loup , or the
Seven Falls or Garden of the Gods trip ,
yet It is beautiful and grand enough to
almost equal them.
Shawnee , where our little party Is
camping , Is only sixty miles up the
canon , but that is far enough to give
a good Idea of the scenery. To reach
Shawnee we take the Colorado and
Southern railway at Denver.
At first the country looks uninter
esting but soon the mountains grow
onger and before long we are winding
around rocks with such sharp curves
that the engine and all cars In front
of us can be plainly seen. On the one
side of us the Platte river rushes and
roars at a fierce rate , while on the
other side the rocks are so near that
we could easily touch them by leaning
from the car window.
The little narrow guage engine puffs
bravely along up , up , past numerous
resorts a few miles apart until the
sixty miles is covered and wo are at
Shawnee , 8,125 feet above sea level
and nearly 3,000 feet higher than Den
ver. The train service is good and
the officials and trainmen exceedingly
Coming from Denver Mr. Michael ,
artist , and formerly of Norfolk , got on
the train. Himself and family have
been In this part of the country all
summer , part of the time at George
town and the remaining time at Platte
Shawnee has a fine modern hotel ,
owned , equipped and maintained by
the C. & S. railroad. There are some
l > eautiful cottages but they are owned
by the wealthy people. A few little
old ones are for rent. They are com
fortable and well enough for a few
The hcenery is free and there arc
enough mountains to keep an ordinary
person climbing for months.
I never enjoyed a vacation as much
In my life and shall always carry with
me the picture of the "everlasting
hills , " wonderful beyond description.
Mrs. H. C. Matrau.
A tramp , giving his name ns Albert
Freek , was up before police court this
