Nebraska Prohibitionists the First Political Organization to Plac a Ticket in the Field, Names ef the Nominees and tbe Platform Ipsa Wultk They Will Stand Before the People. Tat Nsbraska Dscedtnt Measurs As As sarsntly Unjust Law Placed Uses the Staluti Books, Nebraska ProblbltloN Ca-nvaMllaaw 'Lincoln, Neb., August 23. At the second day's session of the Nebraska prohibition convention the following nominations were made: F. P. Wigton, of Norfolk, supreme judge; Mrs. Jennie F. Holmes, of Tecumseh, president of the state W. C. T. U., ami L. B. Pal mer, of Hustings, grand worthy chief templar of the L O. of G. T., for regents of tbe state university. Some discussion was bad on the pro priety of nominating a candidate for congress from the Second congressional district to succeed Laird, but the matter was finally referred to the prohibition ists of that district for final action. The committee on platform then sub mitted the following. The prohibition party of Nebraska in state convention assembled acknowledge Almighty God as the supreme ruler of the universe; heartily endorse the plat form and principles enunciated by the national prohibition party in convention at Indianapolis in Tbe recent purchase of numerous breweries by an English syndicate that already owns nearly all the saloons iu Great Britain and Ireland, with the avowed purpose of likewise controlling the saloons of America, and through them the politics of America, renders tenfold greater the cupahility of hi in who fails to identify himself at once with a political party that declares in unmistakable terms its undying hostility to this kind of foreign domination through t he agency of the criminal classes. This demonstrates the fore sight and correct position of the prohi bitionists in demanding and working for national constitutional prohibition. We arraign the republican party of Nebraska for its double dealing and treachery to the cause of the people of this state as made manifest iu the dual submission bill which passed the hist legislature, submitting the prohibitory amendment to avoid political w reck, and at the same time submitting the license amendment without petition, thus indi cating to every republican partisan that the defeat of prohibition is to be accom plished in tho interest of republican dis tillers, breweries, and saloon keepers, who in turn are to remain loyal to the party of high license. We -pledge the-iiiianimeufl-impportof the prohibition party. We also recog nize and thoroughly condemn the demo cratic party iu its opening and direct hostility to all measures designed to pro hibit the lupior traffic. Resolved, That we favor government control of the railroad and telegraph corporations. Wo pledge the unanimous support of the prohibition party, press and politi cal machinery to the pending prohibi tion, and demand of the republican par ty and party press that they no longer deceive the people, but take a position cither for or against prohibition, that all may know on which side the party ma chinery is being used. Resolved, That w hile we believe most firmly in the wisdom and necessity of keeping all our work separate from all combinations and free from nil compro mises, we express our hearty sympathy with the honest efforts of all temperance men and women to secure the psssage of the pending prohibition amendment. We favor the complete enfranchise ment of women. As tbe Australian ballot system em bodies the best protection to the voter iu his rights, therefore we urgo its speedy adoption. We declare opposition to all trusts and monopolies, of which the liquor tratlic is the chief. We rejoice in the wonderfully wide and pure work of that goodly sisterhood, the Women's Christian union, and com mend its bold add well-managed attack upon the stronghold of legally en trenched vice. We hold the saloons largely responsi ble for the alarming increase of the desecration of the Sabbath and as the training school of anarchy. Its notori ous disregard of Sunday law in Cincin nati and other cities, defying state and municipal authority, is full evidence of their set pnrpose to violate the order and sanctity of the day. Believing that the wage earner is worthy of his hire, and believing that the larg est revenue to the saloon comes through the laboring classes, and believing that the saloou thus stands iu tbe way of the elevation and advancement of labor, we invite the wage earners of every class to join our party in its war against this greatest and most conscienceless monopoly the world has known. As a platform of principles can only become practical through a tarty pledged to their enforcement, there fore, we urge every one opposed to the saloon and its attending evils, to unite with the prohibition party, tbe only party committed to the adoption of the amendment and its iuforcemeut thereaf ter.

Tba Weakeat m4 Moat I'njnet Law That Kvr PoMDd a Plaea on tbe Ne braska Slatnta Ituoka. Lincoln dispatch to tbe Omaha Bee : The sweeping change in the decedent laws of the state, wrought by the pass age of tbe act recited in chapter forty' seven of the session laws of 1883, seems fo come in for a full measure of criti cism. Division twelfth, of section thirty, says: "If the estate shall leave no widow nor kindred, his estate shall escheat to the state of Nebraska; providing, furth er, that the homestead, if any, left by tbe estate shall decend as follows: The homestead shall be appraised by tho county treasurer and tbe county clerk aud one freeholder to be appoiuted by the judge of the comity court, all to be residents of tbe county in Luh tLe homestead is situated. Tm Ife of the county court shall, within aixty JT after be has Wn notified by any person of the death of the deceased and that the inteslatJ leaves a " ,?r " the judge of the county court shall as certiiu said facts from any other source shall apiH.int such appraisers notify the county treasurer aud county clerk and the appraiser .Pointed by said judge of the county court iu writing, to meet on the day fixed by said judge within thirty days from the notice to meet at his office The said appraisers shall then proceed at once to appraise the home-ie-d ef tlie deceased at its cost value, which ap praisement shall be made and returned in writing, under oath, by sud apprais ers, and shall 1 made n par', of the rec ords of saidc t. In case that if a of the said appraiser shall fall to meet, the court shall apiiit other free liol.l ers in their nlace, who shall proceed an. I appraise sai.l homestead under this pro vision, ami anv vacancy at any time shall he tiled in the same way. the jiid-e of the co-uiitv court shall thereup on deduct, from said appraisement, tne amount of encumbrance, if any, npon sai.l homestead, and if the residue does not esceed the sum of SLOW, wild home stead shall descend to the widow in ab solute title, subject to the encumbrance on the mine, if any; in case there is a residue after deducting the amount of encumbrance, if any, and the U shall descend as provided in this act. The citation is made to show that the homestead of intestates must be sold under anv and every circumstance, ami the fact provokes unlimited criticism here, although its purchase price, after the pavment of all debts or incum brances, descends to tliedirect heirs. It appears that the mother, with four or five minor children, if such cases bo found, will have to give up her home for whatever resi due mav come to her through a forced sale, "i regard the decedent law us passed by the late legislature, said one of the state officials to the bee representative to day, "as the weakest and most unjust law that ever found a place on our statute books. Its provis ions should be understood and compre hended by every parent in the state. To lie emphatic, no parent ought to neglect making a will. It might prevent end less heartaches and breaking up what would prove to be happy and prosper ous homes. I want to say, also, that husband mid wife must be of one mind when it comes to will-ninkiug, or. ac cording to the new law, tiie mil would not be of any account. ' The consent of the wife is ncces-arv when it conies to disposing of property by testament, and the same thing is true ou tho other baud." A I'limisv In 111 Ulellind. Washivqton, August 23.

The police were good na fnred but firm and held the crowds back. Tbe reception committee, bended bv Governor Foraker, Iyor Mosby and Comptroller Stevens, met the presi dent ami escorted him to the Iliirnett honso. Hats, nag and handkerchief were waived, and the president kept incessantly raising bis hat and recog nizing the plaudits of the enthusiastic multitude. At many placus the crowds blocked the wav in their eagerness to obtain n sight of the ruler of the nation. On arriving at the hotel Mayor Mosbv delivered a speech of welcome, to which tho president feelingly ret lied: "I thank vou for vour cord al welcome. I bhuil not attempt a fitting reply, but will onlv say that of all th citiei iu tho west, Cincinnati is the nearest to a homo citv to me."

The reception last night given to l'rosideut Harrison on his return home to take part in the monument exercises after six months' absence was as enthusiastic as were the parting congratulations when be left for Washington last Feb ruary. At the Union station there was a great crowd to greet him, and at 9 o'clock, when the train from Cincinnati rolled into tho depot, the cheers were most cordial; at the same time a battery from the arsenel under command of Captain I'.eford. U. S. A , gave the usual salute of tiveiity-one guns. In less than twenty minutes alter tlie arrival of llio train, the president and his party were at tho ii"W Dennison, the drive thern being wit icssed by throngs of cheering people. )n leaving the station thu governor's guard of tlm state militia preceded the curriage in which were l'nsident Harrison, Governor Hovev and Mayor Denny, but in the interval came a hundred or more of the aur vivors of the president's old regiment, the Seventieth. Following were carriages of the com mittee that went to Cincinnati and the committee likewise of citizens to meet the distinguished guest, Tho line was bended by a hand, and thus, with tlm v.iMoisjasm oi uie populace giving its force to the reception, the march con tinued. At the new Denison there was a great crowd blocking the streets and packing the corridors. Alighting the president was saluted by the governor's guards, which the President acknowledged as he did the welcome of the )coplo on tho way from the station.
