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

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

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
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
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.

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." .

report of the First National Bank

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

specified by law, the First National

is a great injustice to the bank and
