For Attorn,wiLcox ForCommissioFtD The vote on submission in the Republican State Convention was 310 for and 291 against. There are no flies on the Wis consin Republicans. They will give twenty thousand plurality for Harrison and Morton. uIn his speech before the state convention, Judge Wall pre dicted 30,000 Republican majority in this state. Had the convention not gone to monkeying with the prohibition question it would have heennearer fifty thousand. Under high license Iowa gave 80,000 " Republican majority. In this year of enthusiasm for Harrison the party will do well if they pull through with twenty thousand. The prohibitionists of Iowa are trying to kill the party that gave them prohibition. At the representative conven tion held in Ogalalla Thursday evening Henry St. Rayner of Chey enne county was nominated for rep resentative. Mr. Rayner is the law partner of Judge Heist, a young man of fine ability and careful legal training . He will be elected by an overwhelming majority. The Democrats nominated Col. Hupfer because he is a good fel low. The Republicans nominated Mr. Oberst because he is not only a srood fellow but possesses other Qualifications that eminentlv fit him to fill the office of county commis sioner. We are sorry tor the uol- onel, but his name is "Dennis The selection of John T. Nesbitt to represent this district in the senate next winter is one of the most fitting nominations for that body that has been made in any por tion of the state. As a lawyer, as an eloquent speaker and ready debater, as a man of irreproachable charac ter, he will be, the peer of any man who will stand on the floor of the senate, at all times exercising for the people he represents the mflu- 1 . 11 I'll 1 f XT ence they are justly entitled to. nis nomination has not been the work of politicians. It has come to him without solicitation and without ef fort on his part. His election by the people will be almost unani mous. The Democratic State Conven tion at Lincoln on Wednesday placed the following state ticket in the field: Governor John A. Mc- Shane; Lieutenant Governor, Prank Folda, of Colfax; Secretary of State, Pat A. Hines, of Kearney; Treasurer, John M. Patterson, of Cass; Auditor, Pointer, of Boone; Attorney General, W. H. Munger. of Dodge; Commissioner of Lands and Buildings, B. H. Jensen, of .Richardson; Superintendent of In struction, Marion Thrasher, of Clay; Electors at large, W. G. Sloan and Olif Hendstrum; First District, A. S. Tibbetts, of Lancas ter; Second District,J. C Kesterson, of Jefferson; Third District, Charles Allen, of Dawes. Mr. Bullard made some wild statements in his speech last Satur day. By implication he said that a ton of steel rails could be bought in England for SI 7, or less than one cent a pound. Not having-the market report at hand, we will not dispute the statement, for Mr. Bul lard should be like the boy who cut down the cherry tree. But his assertion that there were 2,000,000 Democrats in the army, and while they were putting down the rebel lion the Republicans stayed at home and could carry the elections and mas such laws as the passed, can lardly be sustained by the facts of ristory. We were under the im pression f;hat the Democrats de clared the war a failure even when the confederacy was tottering to its fall, and they demanded that Lin coln's hirelings should be immedi ately withdrawn. Mr. Bullard's coadjutors of that time evidently did not believe that their brethren were putting down the rebellion else they would not have referred io them as "Lincoln's hirelings." ff Mr. B. keeps on in this line, he will soon have attained the title of jttonuuiental prevaricator. I TJndbr date of August 23, Henry Fisk & Sons, of New York, send out a circular claiming that the sur plus on the 31st of July, according to the statement of Treasurer Hyatt, was 132,517,751.55. According to recent newspaper statements, it is down to about thirty-two mil lions. If this is true what has be come of the enormous sum of one hundred millions? The statement f urfhrr says that the treasurer had in custody on that date in moner $732,785,527.76, one hundred mil lion of which is "for redemption of United States notes" greenbacks. The question is naturally asked why one hundred million dollars in gold is locked up for the redemp tion of greenbacks, which no one wants redeemed? Its according to law, but we are greeabacker enough to believe that the time has arrived when the law can be repealed and the reserve put in circulation by the purchase of bonds, of which we have over one thousand million outstanding. In the next congress the Republican party will have a "majority in both houses, when re forms will be in order. The publishers of Custer county held a meeting, and the sentiment expressed favored reducing their papers to sizes that could be all run at home. Many publishers with .small circulation are sending out large patent papers and are actuallv losing money on their subscription list. The demand is for low priced papers, and publishers are obliged to conform to this demand, and hence country papers are in the habit of estimating no profits on subscriptions. People do not seem to understand that a paper with 500 circulation cannot be furnished for the price of a paper with 5000, and expect the home paper just as cheap as they can get the city paper. Business is business, and no coun try publisher can long do business in any other than a business way. He must make a profit on his paper in every department. If he relies on one branch to make up for what he losses on another, his prices must of necessity be too hign, re sulting in a loss of business. Every branch should be self-sustaining. The sooner publishers adopt this plan, the better. The Tribune has pursued this course from the start, and juding from the fact that it is the paper having by far the largest circulation in the county, as well as the largest foreign circula tion, the plan receives the approval of the people. - z the state convention. The Republican state convention was a remarkable body in some re spects. It was a temperance con vention, believing that the question of the manufacture and sale of in toxicants should be submitted to the people, while realizing that pro hibition does not prohibit, but is only a means to a desired end. It was emphatically an anti-monop oly convention, very strongly evi denced by the votes on treasurer and attorney general. A novice in convention work could easily see that neither Mr. Yost or Mr. Ein sel could be nominated for treasur er, not that the members had any ill-feeling against either personally, but there was a strong impression that they were both under the con trol of the railroads. While many of the delegates, avowing them selves anti-monopolists, were op posed to Leese because thej be lieved that he, as a member of the railroad commission, had caused railroad; building in this state to stop, yet with this strong element against him, reinforced by the rail road people, he was nominated by a good majority. The sentiment was too strong that the people and not the railroads should govern this state for any combination to influ ence its action. This sentiment was forcibly illustrated too in the negative influence of the Douglas county delegation, thirty-seven strong, and composed as one of its members said, of thirty-seven ora tors, not the least among whom was the eloquent John M. Thurs ton. The urban delegations could not run the convention. The country districts were on deck and slates were broken without cere mony. Composed largely of young men, lfc was a convention of the people,re- necting their sentiments and de sires. It was a body of business men, business being at a premium and "chin music" at a discount. No windy speeches were allowed. The ticket presented to the peo ple is an excellent one, on a plat- fom that all can endorse. As a matter of course Gov- Thayer was renominated. Geo. D. Meiklejohn for Lieut-Governor, is a fine man. G. L. Laws for Secretary of State, J. E. Hill for Treasurer, T. H. Ben ton for Auditor. Wm. Leese for Attorney General, and Geo. B. Lane for Superintendent, are all well known throughout the state. John Steen, for Land Commissioner is from Saunders county. He was a soldier and is very popular where personally known. The ticket will be elected by forty thousand majority. been such enthusiasm manifested for the political work in hand. The convention was called to order at 2 p. m. by L. A. Stevens, of North Platte, secretary of the senatorial committee. J. E. Morri son, of Logan, was elected tempo rary chairman and George McBride, of Cheyenne, secretary. The chair appointed as committee on credentials, Judge Heist, of Cheyenne; W. J. Fleming, of Daw son; J. A. Wertz, of Perkins; M. Oberst, of Lincoln and H. Collins, of Keith. While waiting for the report of the committee, a glee club formed "extemporaneously" composed of Carey and Laing of Cheyenne, Mor rison of Logan and Warner of North Platte, sang a number of campaign songs, producing the wildest enthusiasm. A number of delegates also made rattling speeches. The committee on credentials reported the following delegates from their respective counties: Cheyenne county L. B. Carey, Geo. W. Heist, A. B. Beard, Andy Burg. B. A. Jones, E. O. Lee, Geo. McBride, C. C. Callahan, Wm. Bullock,-G. H. Laing, John Byer, Dawson J. W. Patterson, W. Fleming. J. E. Wells, B. F. Krier, W. J. Lawson, J. L.

Simpson. The report of the committee was adopted. On motion of Carey of Cheyenne, the temporary organization was made permanent. Then the convention proceeded to the nomination of a senator. W. C. Elder presented the name of J. I. Nesbitt. Mr. Carey, of Cheyenne, seconded the nomination. On motion Mr. Nesbitt was de clared the nominee by acclamation. The glee blub then rendered the song "What's the matter with Nesbitt? He's all right!" fairly setting the convention afire. Mr. Nesbitt accepted the nomi nation in a very neat, eloquent and appropriate speech, receiving the hearty endorsement or all present The following is the senatorial committee: Lincoln J. E. Evans. Dawson J. W. Patterson. Cheyenne Ed. O'Neil. Logan J. P. Gandy. Keith E. M. Day. Perkins J. A. Wertz. Arthur C. W. Kejes. McPherson J. W. Clous. The convention then adjourned. WILCOX WILL WIN. Wallace, Aug. 30th. Eds. Tribune: I noticed an article in last week's Telegraph written by xleiected f re-emptor, concerning ine reelings or cne voters here against W. T. Wilcox. Who "Re jected Pre-emptor" is I am not able to say but evidently he has tried to prove up and got left, and it is working on him like an overdose of watermelon by making him a-c-h-e and he is trying to transfer his ache to Wilcox by making him be lieve the voters here are going back on him. .Better try some other Medicine. Mr. Reiected. as we will bet our old white hat against any body's old white hat that Wilcox will roll in the biggest vote here that ever was cast for county attor ney. Voter. The Thirtieth Senatorial District Conven tion. The Republican Convention for the Thirtieth Senatorial district.met at Ogalalla Thursday. The conven tion was largely attended, every county being represented by nearly a fulfaelegation. Never before in this district has there been such in terest taken in a senatorial conven tion, and never before has, there The Omaha Republican is hand ling the tariff discussion with re markable vigor. There are no flies on the Republican this cam paign. the democratic county con vention. The Democrats met in coven tion last Saturday for the purpose of t f 11 i ii electing delegates to tneir various conventions and placing in nomin ation candidates for county attor ney and county commissioner. F. E. Bullard of this city was elected chairman and Duvall Jackson- of Wallace secretary. About twenty delegates were present. We will not characterize them as "bulls" or "bears", or talk about them pawing the earth or goring each other. There was nothing about the affair that par took of a jolly circus performance. On the other hand there was a deep and mournful solemnity. Chief mourner Bullard was the personifi cation of grief, while the leading S all-bearers, James E. Grace and ajor Risse moved about like spec ters in the solemn silence. Our reporter did not get there in time to witness the opening of the grand obsequies, but we presume the ceremony was imposing and in keeping with the doleful surround ings. After the opening ceremonies, the following gentlemen were elec ted delegates to the state conven tion B. I. Hinman, W. B. Risse, S. A. Grandjean, G. -P. Gavin, F. E. Bullard. Delegates to the congressional convention Dr. Dick, George T. Snelling, W. L. McGee, J. H. Day and John Keliher. After quite a lengthy and evi dently painful silence to those on the mourner's bench, W. L. McGee and John Owens were instructed to cast the vote of the county at the senatorial and representative con ventions. j Thai CoLl'JL & Hupfer was nom inated for cemMMBoner and Maj. Risse for cowity attorney, there being no off wtfaoi in either case. How plcatanV it if to dwell to gether in" Col. Hupfer was not praatntj jad of course could not make a saiweh, bat Mai. Risse responded to the call of the dele gates to ,relieT ihet stillness that Eervaded:tttr great kail of the court ouse disturbed jmXj by a story from janitor Toataiy Reed in the back part of 1mT room. Maj. Risse was not in.hw uaual good tnm ap parently; but he assured the dele gates that the Republican nominee for attorney would not have a walk-. way by any means. He would prosecute the canvass for all there was in it, and when the votes were counted he didn't propose to be second best. The Major is a good talker and he knows it is nec essary to put as much wind in the canvass as possible. The delegates to the state con vention were instructed to use their best effq'rts,' to have F. E. Bullard, of thistcityi placed on the ticket as a candidate for-elector. This was' supposed to about close the proceedings' but a few" faint call forV.E.TJulIard brought that gentlemin.ioliie ftet Mr. Bullard said that' thetariff was going to be the great issue of this campaign; that the Republicans were just as anxious to have a reduction of the tariff as theDemocrats, but that the Republicans'hadn't the brain to originate the "measure. Referring to the wa jhe said there were two million Democrats in the army,that the army was composed of Demo crats, and that the Republicans being left at home had everything their own way. He again referred to the tan&and said that the tariff is robbing the people. "When a ton of steel rails costs 17 in Eng land and $35 in, the United States, somebody robbing you." He dwelt at&onsiderable length on the subject. 'r f.u After reading the proceedings the convention adjourned. -i jj" j i- - a .-a- i " In a recent speech Mr. Blaine made the following apt comparison: "We are now in the twenty-eighth year of a protective tariff, enacted by a Republican congress, and made more effective from year to year as industrial experience enabled congresslrom time to time to cor rect and adjust its workings. How, then, stands the matter at the end of twenty-eight years of protec tion? The wagerworkers or New York and New England have $715,000,000 to -their credit or nearly eight times the amount gained under twenty-eight years of free traVlean the same states. The population" of- the seven states at tne ciose oi tne long era or tree trade was 7,250,000, and their pop ulation in this twenty-eight years of protection is presumed to be 11,000,000. The wage-workers of these states, toiling under a tariff revenue such as is .recommended by the, president, had earned a sur- plus amounting to $13.du for each person, of the entire population, while the wage-workers for the lat ter period, .under a protective tariff, have earned $65 per head for the total population; or in other words the average wage-worker under a protective tariff m the United States has been able to save five times as much as the average wage-worlter under a mere revenue tariff." hw The president has vetoed the bill for a pnblic building at Sioux City. He wants time "to investigate and find out how large Sioux City is. Certainly that is reason enough. Congress oi course passed the bill in a sort of haphazard way without knowing whether Sioux City was an Indian village or a populous city, and the 'president ought to have time i r to find this out. True, he approved bills for public build ings in towns of Missouri and other southern states, not large enough to be classed as second class post- offices and wnere the need of a pub lic building is not as apparent as the need of4a fifth wheel to a? farm agon, butV.tben there is a differ- ence aonftfcjou now. fublic buildings4!" Pennsylvania, Ohio and Iowa cities involve a waste of money money that will not bring a return in Democratic electoral votes. Then, too, don't you know, a man can t be blamed for reward ing his friends. State Journal. Walt Mason says: "Parties who voted for George Washington when he was elected president will pleace report at this office. It is proposed to establish another Old Guard for effective campaign work. Cleveland has contributed ten thousand dollars to the national campaign fund. His partisans in sist that it is not an unusually large amount; but compared to the paltry forty dollars he sent to the Charleston earthquake sufferers, ten thousand dollars will appear excessively large. Thanks to Congressman Scott, the fiscal agent of the Democratic campaign committee, the coal ring proposes to advance anthracite coal "twenty-five cents a ton anyway, and perhaps fifty cents" for Septem ber purchases.. A similar advance from the advanced price will be made for October purchases, and by election time it is expected that the price will be 8.50 a ton Congressman Scott is the chief ex ponent of the free trade' method of- "maKing tne necessaries oi me cheap." Senator Allison has been doing some more figuring and he finds that the expenditures of the gov ernment during the four years of Cleveland's administration exceeded by ninety-five million dollars the expenditures for the four years of Garfield's and Arthur's administra tions. Senator Beck, in replying to this, complimented benator Al lison for his fairness. And yet this is the great reform administra tion, an administration that came into power on its promise of econo my and on its charges of Republi can reckless and extravagance. Yes, this is a wonderful administra tion wonderful for a good many things that it would rather not have brought to public attention. Journal. pOYAl POWDER Absolutely Pure. This powder never varies.
