Foxy S nnd Dr. Knott wore nil shut
out of the nice. Fast Hpoed was de
veloped In the first bent of this race ,
when tbo tlmo mndo WIIH 2:23-yi. : A
peculiar feature of the race was the
fact that Douglas , driver of Buster
Brown , who WIIH one of those dis
tanced , bad boon tbo man to ask for
the Hag. Albosslo ( Morton ) acted
badly in the scoring , broke two sul-
Ulqs and then bad to bo taken to tbo
barn. This loft the six starters for
the first heat.
An argument by a bookmaker and
tbo driver of Buster Brown was made
to tbo judges after the first boat to
the effect that tbo three distanced
horses could not bo Hhnt out because
the distancing was not announced sim
ultaneously with tbo announcement of
the result of the boat. The Judges
decided that the distancing announce
ment was made soon enough , that thoraces
races wore being run for tbo honellt
of the people and not tbo bookmaker.
The bookmaker Hworo bo would not
pay for bis concession and the driver
of Buster Brown declared ho would
got revenge on one of the race olll-
In tbo second bent , with three hors
es , Dash On and Grace Marks led to
the stretch , their heads oven , when
Jimmy Booth plunged ahead , took the
lead , but broke fifty foot from the
wire. Ho was sot back to third place ,
when Christ , one of the judges , made
a speech declaring himself in favor of
allowing Booth the boat , nnd retired in
a rage. It wns thought that Christ
bad n personal Interest In the horse
Booth , because In the flr t beat , when
the time wns 2:17-.J : } , he tried to per
suade the judges to give out the time
as 2:10 : In order that It might got a
special prize offered by the associa
tion for :1G : time on this track. Mad
Huffman of Nellgh was substituted as
judge In place of Christ.
In the third heat of the 2:50 : raco.
there was another pretty horse race.
Moore led with Grace Marks and Kay
was close second until the stretch
with Dash On , when Jimmy Booth
jumped Into the load and \\on. 'The
stretch was a beautiful finish. Moore
protested that Kay forced him to the
sod nnd made his horse lose her
stride , because Jimmy Booth closed In
and pocketed Kay. The judges did
not sustain the protest. Later Moore
declared that both other drivers ac
knowledged the foul.

os Imaginable. Fred H broke at the

Feat of Surena , Reinless Wonder.
Surena , the reinless wonder from
St. Edward , Neb. , trotted a beautiful
mile ungulded and alone , In 2:20 : Hat.
She trotted every Inch of the distance ,
too , without a break and with scarcely
a move of her pretty bead. After she
had finished tbo mile , she was turned
at the stable by a swipe and trotted
back to the judge's stand , as though
coming for the decision. The time on

DOCUMENT TO BE SUBMITTED TO
FORMULATED BY THE COMMITTEE
Recommends Reforms Along Popular
Lines , Declares for a Direct Primary
Law , Against Corporate Domination
and the Free Pass.
Omaha , Aug. 17. At the mooting of
the resolutions committee , appointed
by the state central committee , to
draft a platform for tbo republican
state convention which meets In Lin
coln next week , the following draft
was made and will bo submitted to
the convention :
Wo , the republican delegates of Ne
braska , In convention assembled , con
gratulate tbo country upon the splen
did achievements of our party during
its fifty years of history under the
leadership of our Illustrious statesmen ,
from the Immortal Lincoln to the in
vincible Roosevelt. Wo declare anew
our adherence to the principles enun
ciated In the republican national plat
form. We also realllrm all the doc
trines and declarations of our last
Wo especially commend tbo Inspir
ing character and undaunted leader
ship of Theodore Roosevelt. It Is
with exceeding pride that wo contem
plate the confidence reposed in him
by the people of our own country and
the admiration bo commands from the
whole world. Nebraska rejoices In
tbo fact that the president has re
ceived the united support of our en
tire delegation In both bouses of congress -
gross for the many beneficial meas
ures he has recommended In direct
line of Interest and advantage to the
people , which they have assisted In
framing Into wholesome laws. Among
the most noteworthy are :
The railroad rate bill.
The Panama canal bill.
The lock level canal system.
The puie food bill.
The Irrigation bill.
The employers' liability bill.
The meat Inspection bill.
The denaturalized alcohol bill.
The Oklahoma statehood bill.
Tbo naturalization bill.
Our country is at peace with all
nations of the earth , and Is experi
encing an unparalleled season of gen
uine prosperity. Never before In our
history as a nation has our credit been
better than It Is today. Money Is
plentiful ; the wage earners , the farm-
qrs and the business people prosper
ous , owing to the wise , judicious and
careful administration of the laws en
acted by the republican party during
its control of pur national affairs.
We declare our unalterable allegl-
anco to tbo principle of protection
under tbo beneficent operation of
which our country has grown both
rich and great. While yielding noth
ing from our adherence to this princi
ple , we believe that changes In sched
ules should follow changes In condi
tions. The history oi the republican
party demonstrates that such revision
can safely be trusted only to the party
which honestly believes In protection
and earnestly endeavors to justly ap
ply the principles to conditions as they
We most heartily approve tbo ac
tion of our officers , both of the nation
and In the state in their splendid ef
forts to insure justice for the people
against conspiring trusts and combi
nations and all forms of graft , that all
may have a "square deal. "
The glorious record of the past Is
the party's best pledge for the future.
Wo endorse and commend the econ
omical and lawenforclng administra
tion of the affairs of tbo state under
Governor John H. Mickey. During
the past six years under the repub
lican administration the state of Ne
braska has been well governed ; all of
its state Institutions have been ably
and economically managed and are

We believe that the Union Pacific
and Burlington railway companies
should have accepted the valuation
placed upon their property by the
state board of equalization and assess
ment and paid their taxes as all per
sons and other corporations have done.
We approve the action of the legal de
partment of this state In their efforts
to enforce the provisions of the rev
enue law and secure tbo payment of
taxes and pledge our constituted au
thorities our hearty support in com
pelling the railroads to pay their just
share of taxation at the same time and

We favor and urge upon the next
legislature the enactment of a direct
primary law providing for the nomina
tion of all state , county and district
ofllcersj including congressmen and
United States senators , by direct vote ;
and until such law Is enacted , wo fa
vor the nomination of United States
senators by state convention and wo
pledge the republicans elected to the
legislature to support for United
States senator the republican candi
date who may be nominated for that
office by this convention.
We favor the amendment of the
constitution of the United States pro
viding for the election of United
States senators by a direct vote of
We declare ourselves as unalterably
opposed to the domination of corpo
rations in public affairs , and urge the
enactment of the next legislature of
an anti-pass law that will prevent the
issuance of any free pass , free ticket ,
free transportation , or transportation
known as newspaper or editorial mile
age , exqept to bona-flde employes of
a railroad company , and to members
of their Immediate families and care
takers of llvo stock.
Wo are heartily In favor of and our
party unreservedly pledges its en
dorsement of the proposed constitu
tional amendment providing for three
railway commissioners to be elected
by direct vote of tbo people and urge
that the next legislature shall confer
upon such commission power to pro
hibit rebates , discriminations and spe
cial rates to privileged corporations ,
persons or localities , and to see to It
that any and all abuses are corrected
and equitable freight and passenger
rates obtained for the people.
We demand an Impartial enforce
ment of the revenue law by county
and state officials , to the end that all
property , both corporate and Indivi
dual shall bo assessed at Its actual
cash value , thereby assuring n fair
and equal assessment and the raising
only of such revenue as Is needed to
meet the Current expenses of our state
government under the most rigid econ
omy.We also approve the passage by the
legislature of a law along the same
lines as has been adopted by congress
touching the liability of employers to
their employes , to the end that such
employes may recover for any Inju
ries suffered notwithstanding the neg
ligence of n follow servant.
Wo recommend our representatives
In congress to urge the speedy adop-
tlon of such laws and regulations as
will permit the leasing , sale , or other
disposition of the government lands
In the western portion of the state , In
such manner as will host protect the
Interest of the residents.
The republican party of Nebraska ,
proud of Its record and achievements ,
appeals with confidence to tbo people
of our great and growing common
wealth for a continued approval of Its
policies as bringing the greatest ben
efits to the people of our state and
