New York, Minnesota and other state delegations kept their seats, and had noting to do with the ninety minute "cake walk" parade. Soon as it was fully settled that . Mr. Bryan was nominated, the-New York delegation left the hall and left the city for home, and did not have any thing more to do with the convention. It was all around conceded that New York could have the second place, but they did not want it. Judge Alton B. Parker, who was the democratic nominee for president four years ago, was a New York delegate, but was snubbed and given very cold and icy treatment at the hands of Mr. Bryan's ardent following. Some democrats were heard to say that they would vote for Taft this year that they can vote for Bryan most any year. Of course this came from state del egates who were not in the "ring." That Democratic Convention. Delayed special from the Democratic National convention, penver. colo.. J uly ai. lyuw. The Democratic National Con vention has aL. ' - 1 its quadrannial orgies. Never before aid the one man" power show itself so com plete as here. Mr. Bryan was the whole thing. No delegate seemed to know wha.t to do ex cept he first consult some one in touch with Lincoln, Neb., that is no Bry ah delegate. In the face of this some leath er-lunged" orator (?) referred to Taft as the hot house" candi date, who was warmed and hatch ed out for the sole purpose of the republican nomination. Never in the history of any po litical party was a national con vention so handicaped as this democratic convention has been. The great ' outburst" of ap plause for Mr. Bryan was ar ranged for and the job ped dled around who should set fire to the "rubbish" collected for the "demonstration" and at last the blind senator from Oklahoma was selected and couched" as to what should be the "slogan" for a "spontaneous" outburst, which some stalwart individual was instructed to get on the ros trum and wave a flag and whoop her up for Bryan for one hour. but the fellow coming from a lower altitude time run too fast for him and he overdid the time or in other words "worked over time" and yelled or led the yell ing for one hour and a half. This was all arranged and how with pride" it was pointed out that the convention as one man at the name of the "commoner burst in a 'fit" of applause that lasted ninety minutes. It was all arranged, but one hour was set for the time, which was over done. Oklahoma was there, yes she was there posing" as the young est (and we might add the dirt iest) sister in the galaxy." Our correspondent after at tending all sessions up to Satur dav was somewhat fatigued. Many democrats were heard to say that they were very much disappointed at . the convention not setting up something that Democracy has done and not rely solely on attacking the Republi cans for what they have done These same democrats say that they are tired of having their party run on the mistakes or misdeeds of the republicans, and if the democratic party has nothing better than to attack the republicans for their work then the democracy has no excuse to live, much less for victory. It was a big convention, a har monious affair (mostly.) "When the great ' cake walk" H- J. HILLS. PRESIDENT w. e. BAE&. VICE PRESIDENT - A. H- BLAIR. CASHIER ' C. R. HILLE. ASST.

The Nebraska, Kansas & South ern Railway Co., which proposes to build a railroad from Stock ton to Garden City, the line to run through the eastern part of Trego county as now surveyed if the bonds are voted in Ogallah, Riverside and Glencoe townships, has made good progress in the time since the matter was first started. The company only re ceived its charter in February, 1907, and since that time a com plete location survey with blue prints, profile maps and com plete estimates have been made over the whole route, and bonds of $2000 per mile have been vot ed throughout the length of the road, except in the four town--hips where it is now proposed to hold elections; the right of way is secured -from Garden City to the south line of Ness couiiiyi and all the small details are worked out and the cash ready to build the road. The engineers estimates of cost of construction, not includ ing equipment, is $18,500 per mile. It, will thus be seen that the $2000 per mile aid bonds ask ed is a mere bagatelle compared to the whole cost of the road. Other townships have eagerly voted the bonds in order to se cure what western Kansas needs more , than anything else a north and south railroad and we hope to see the town ships in this and Ellis counties fall right in line. ' The way railroads are assess ed now, it is computed that in twenty-one years the railroad will have paid in taxes to an amount equal to the $2000 per mile for every mile it has in the county, thus completely in that time offsetting the bonds. And all those years the railroad is in creasing trie value or lana oy settling up the country, malang more towns, factories along its line, and in dozens of ways add ing to the taxable property, thus benefitting to a greater or less degree the whole county. As is the common idea abroad, railroads are not built in an un productive portion of country. Hence for Trego county to se cure this line, which is the only north and south line likely to be built, would be an advertisement in the east worth more alone than the amount of the bonds asked. To have that road show ing on the official railroad map of the state as traversing Trego county would look mighty good! And don't you forget that the counties that secure it will be the counties to be favored by im migration for the next twenty years far above all adjoining counties. It is people that make any country; and no other agency will bring the people like the construction of railroads and other public enterprises. So we would Impress on our readers in the townships inter ested that it is not a time to be "penny wise and pound foolish." These people will build the rail road if you vote the bonds. If you do not they will still build it but it will be somewhere else. Remember the earth is broad and roads can be built east and west of us as well as here. And too there are other places anxious i to have the road. g In wearing jewelry you should get the best. Why not? & g You don't have to wear the cheap stuff do you? There is no - 5 economy in that.
