V THE REPUBLICAN CONVENTION. In writing the political history of Lincoln county, the historian will refer to the Republican county convention held last Saturday af ternoon as especially notable by reason of the deep interest taken therein, and for the earnest, quiet manner it proceeded to work. The members were conscious that upon the result of their labors might and in all probability will depend the issue of events of great importance to the party, and they did not feel that it vras becoming or proper that their work should be performed with a whoop and hurrah thought less style. Most of the delegates ivere early on the ground, and for several hours before the meet ing of the convention could be seen in groups upon the streets earnestly discussing the situation. All recognized the high charac ter, fitness and ability of Mr. J as. Sutherland for State Treasurer, and m ii i a n beiore tne meeting or tne conven tion it was decided he should have tne privilege or naming nis own delegates to the state convention. Every member seemed to think that by reason of its population, great resources and rapid development, the western part of the state was just ly entitled to a representation on the state ticket, and that there was no man whom they could more neartily recommend than James Sutherland, whose long residence in, the state, ' high personal character and finan cial ability so eminently fitted him for the place. The delegates recognizing the im portance of the oihee of county attorney, freely discussed the merits of the different names sug gested for that office. Aside from the county board, there is no officer who can create or save the county from so great financial expense Every important question in county anairs is suDmittea to mm. lr nis judgment is sound, the people's in terests are protected; if bad they may be involved in expensive litiga tion, for this important othce Wesley T. Wilcox was considered in every way qualified. He will be elected almost unanimously. For county commissioner Martin Oberst of this city was nominated by acclamation. Mr. Oberst is one of the old residents of the county, a large property holder and tax payer, his business course has al ways been conservative. In con ducting the affairs of the county he will favor economy, the reduction of taxes and the placing of the county on a sound financial basis. For delegates to the senatorial convention there was a spirited yet friendly contest. The principal contestants to name the delegation were J. I. Nesbitt and T. C. Patter son. The question was made straight and the ballot taken di rectly for senator. Perhaps no convention in this county has had to choose between two candidates so well qualified. The second bal lot gave Mr. Nesbitt a majority, and the delegates will support him for senator. Throughout the work of the con vention was hanxuMxms.

The convention paid this gentle man a handsome and well-merited compliment by unanimously ap proving his candidacy for state Treasurer and by the same hearty vote adopting a resolution asking him to select his own delegation. It is the exception and not the rule for conventions to take this step, and furnishes unquestioned proof of the worth and high standing of this gentleman in our county. Mr. Sutherland is a gentleman upwards of forty years of age and has long been identified and well known in the business circles of our state. He settled in Chey enne county in 1874, where he es tablished the State Bank of Sidney and where he remained until 1885 when he took up his residence in North Platte, establishing the State Bank of North Platte, and is now its popular and efficient cashier. He was five Tears county treasurer of Cheyenne count' (one year by appointment and four years by election) and at a time when it was an empire in size, and his adminis tration of the office was such as to give him the confidence of men of all parties. The position of state Treasurer demands that high order of talent and practical knowledge of business affairs possessed in no greater degree by any one in our state than by Mr. Sutherland. Not one word can be said against him. He pos sesses all of the qualifications requisite to the able and proper discharge of the high trust of the important position. He will go to the state convention with a large following, not only in Western Nebraska but from other portions of the state. The delega- gation will work for his nomination with a zeal and energy born of real friendship for the man, a knowl edge of the pre-eminent ability, unquestioned integrity, honesty and capacity which he will bring to the faithful discharge of the duties of the office when elected. Their motto will be Vim, Vigor. Victory! Says the'Omatia Bee:' tSfany let ters of inquiry having been ad dressed to the editor of the paper at Decatur, III., where Dr. Brooks, the prohibition candidate for vice president, made his memorable speech, as to whether he used the language reported, the editor has caused to be printed in the form of a circular affidavits of his repor ter and of reputable, citizens giving the exact language of Dr. Brooks, which does not vary in any import ant particular from the first report of his remarks. These in substance were that he lived in the south and owned slaves; that he sympathized with the south and prayed for the confederate cause; that he had been a Democrat, but thanked God that he had never been a Republican and would never have that sin to answer for this last portion being uttered with interestness and feeling. It is understood that Dr. Brooks does not deny having used the language but bas said that he did not intend it in the spirit in 'which it has been construed. The manner of the Doctor at the time, however, leaves no doubt of what his feeling was when he made the unfortunate declaration, and attempts at expla planation will be likely to make the matter .worse rather than better. He committed a most serious blun der, that is simply irreparable so long as he remains on tne ticket. If he sincerely has at heart the cause he in part represents he should promptly give place to some other man. No prohibitionist who was formerly a Republican can without sacrifice of self respect vote for Dr." Brooks. was a -. m - m !W Visitors still continue to call on General Harrison, six thousand pay ing their respects to the gentleman -;Wecbieiay. W. E. Schwartz, of Pittsburg, just home from abroad, and fellow Sassenger with Blaine, says: "In !ngland and Scotland Andrew Carnegie is by far the best known of Americans. While out driving n Edinburgh with a friend I had the foundation of a new building pointed out to lne, and was told it was the new public library to which Mr. Carnegie had given fifty thousand dollars. Mr. Carnegie was, however, always spoken of in a sneering manner. The people do not like him, not I think, because of his American ideas, for they don't know much about them, but because Mr. Carnegie refused to subscribe to the Queen's jubilee fund and accompanied his refusal with a letter which did not, in the ODinion of the English neonle. do sufficient honor to the queen. Eng lishmen, are very loyal to the Queen and I think it was for reasons- simi lar to this that during mv whole stay in that country I never heard a good word for Gladstone." . MAXWELL NOTES. Haying is about half done but at a standstill just now on account or too much rainy weather. One of Wm. Plumer's horses fell dead in the harness last Tuesday, rupture being the cause. The school board'has engaged G. D. Robinson to teach the fall term of school at the station. Mr. R. is late of Valley, Neb., where he has been engaged in teaching and brings' good recommendations. He also holds a diploma- from the Omaha business college and promises to give good satisfaction. J. W. Jewett received his saddle Monday evening which was stolen from his stable about a week ago by a couple of boys who were over taken at Big Springs by deputy sheriff Merrynmn. The deputy took tho saddle mid let the .boys go free. Messrs. Jewett and Snyder shipped a carload of cattle to Omaha Monday. Q. Miss Eva Frankenberger and Miss Etta Matthews had an expe rience on last Tuesday night that they will not forget so long as they live. Miss F. is a sister of jMrs. J. L. May, the. latter with her husband being on a visit to the sum-, mer resorts west of 'here and is looking after Mr. May's- house dur ing their absence. On. Tuesday night last Miss Matthews spent the evening with Miss Frankenberger, and by invitation remained all night. The young ladies retired about half past ten or eleveu o'clock, after securely fastening all the doors and windows. About midnight they were awakened by some one in the room, and for at least three hours were kept in a state of terror br the burglar prowling about the room ransack ing bureau drawers and boxes, after which he crawled through a win dow and disappeared. It is evident the thief was only after money as nothing else was taken, but he failed to secure any as there was. none in the room.

On the IOth day of July a letter was mailed at , Ogalalla directed to A. W. Kinne, Paxton, containing a report of the First National Bank at Ogalalla to the treasury depart ment at Washington. The report was sent here for Mr. Kinne, one of the directors, to sign. It was not received at this office until six days afterwards, and as the report, by reason of this delay, did not get to Washington in" the required time specified by law, the First National was fined two hundred dollars. This is a great injustice to the bank and was caused by the government it self and should be looked into and righted. Paxton Pilot.
