STEVENS & BABE, Editors and Props. SATURDAY. JULY 21. 1898. REPUBLICAN TICKET. Pot President, BENJAMIN HARBISON, of Indiana. ForYice-PMeident, LEVI P. MORTON, of New York. For Member of Congress, Third Diet.. rOEO. W. E. JDORSKY. Republican 8tate Convention. The BepaMkan electors of the State of Ne braska are reooested to send delegates from their sereral cowtiefi to meet in convention at the city of IBcoln.Thars6ay. Angoet 23, 1888, at 2 o'clock p.m., for the purpose of placing in nomination caadidatee for state officers. The sereral counties are entitled to one dele gate at large and one for each 150 votes and major fraction thereof ast for Samuel Maxwell in 1867. Lincoln county is entitled to eight delegates. Meeting- of the County Central Committee. The Kepeblicaa County Central Committee ia called to meet at the court house in North Platte on Saturday afternoon, July 28th at two o'clock. The presence of every member ia desired, as bwHBess of importance will be considered. J. I. Nzbbitt, Chairman. C. P. Dick, Secretary. The people of Adams county think it a great wrong because they haTe only one representative in the ' legislature under the new apportion ment. Adams is a small county twenty-four miles square with 30, 000 population. One representative can look after the interests of so small a territory very well. But if they had the population and terri tory of the west part of the State they would have cause to kick. The counties of Lincoln, Keith, Perkins and Cheyenne nearly 2 hundred miles long and over 50 broad with over 50,000 population, have one representative. It cannot be denied that finan cial and industrial prosperity or the reverse, have eyer had considerable to do, in the past, with the success of political parties. "Ignorance and neglect are the mainsprings of mis rule" and the Democratic party must be held responsible for much of the business depression at the present time. Men who were in favor of a change four years ago are more anxious for a change now. Two northern states casting over fifty electoral votes went for Dem ocracy at the last presidential elec tion, but are now classed with the number which say "we have no use for Grover." New York and In diana will be redeemed in Novem ber. In the examination of the strik ing "Q" men charged with con spiracy to destroy with dynamite, one of the conspirators turned out to be a Pinkerton detective. It looks as though manager Stone was going too far, when he attempts to draw the managers of the grievance committee into a scheme to use dvnamite. The public will soon have irood reason to believe that the the company's property has been de stroyed at the instigation or the manager. The stockholders should take a hand in this investigation and see if their interests cannot be protected and advanced.

"F. E. B.'s" rejoinder on the army vote question in the Telegraph is about as weak as 'such a document can be imagined in the language of the street its a "dead give away." He acknowledges what no Demo crat aver admitted before, but what every Republican has always known, that the Chicago conven tion was run by disloyal copperheads, "whose influence was as insignifi cant as their motives were base." Yet F. E. B.'s candidate for Vice President, the great and good Thur man, was a member of that con vention and author of a portion of the platform. The Democratic party has never repudiated the action of that convention; but on the other hand has always approved of its nefarious work, and have im proved every oportunity to elect its members to positions of honor and trust. Their motives were base, but the Democratic party honored them and their motives. They are now trying to elect two copperheads "whose motives were base to the highest offices in the gift of this great nation. Have they shown by word or action that their motives have changed since 1861? SOMERSET. The recent dance at Jesse Young's was greatly enjoyed by those attending.
