turn their attention to adjoining prop- lie
irty to prevent the spend of the flames.

in spite of the many streams of water.

Lincoln, Neb., Sept 24.?The Republican
State convention met in this city at
in n'ninnir f/wrlntf ?in/l ' of flin <>1niu< of
tills convention Nebraska will present
a political situation which finds no
parullel in any other State of the Union.
Three great political parties will contest
for supremacy in tho State this fall
and so nearly equal is their numerical
strength that no one can prcdict with
any certainty to which the victory will
fall. Of tho 211,000 votes cast in the
State election of u year ago, the ltopublicans
cast in round numbers 80,000, the
Independents 71,000, and the Democrats
011,000. Except for Governor Boyd receiving
a plurality, it is conceded by
both tho old parties that the Independents
or Farmers aro liy no means
tirod of their new organization and
that their vote will not vary materially
from that cast a year ago.
The convention was called to order
promptly at 10 o'clock bv Chairman
tvatson, ox ino etato uornrui uow
mittee, who made a briuf speech, congratulating
the convention upon the
large attendance and predicting success
for their candidates to be nominated.
"It tlio Bigns are true," said Chairman
Watson, "the Republican National
Convention at Omaha in 1892 will noniuato
the next President of the United
States, and that mun will be the glorious
captain of the gallant ship of State,
the skillful navigator, the fearless leader.
the bright, the brilliant, the matchless
Blaine."
At tho mention of the name of Blaine
a secret cord from the rear was touched
and the portrait of the great exponent
of reciprocity dropped insight The effect
was magical. Five hundred delegates
instantly sprang to their feet and
cheerafter cheer resounded through tho
halt for tho distinguished Secretary of
oiate.
In concluding Ills speech, Chairman
Watson introduced lion. George W.
Tliummel, of Grand Island, as the temporary
chairman of the convention.
Chairman Tliuinmel wnu greeted with
cheers and mada a brief address.
The committee on resolutions immediately
met and began the formulation
of a platform.
THE PLATFORM.
On roassombllngtho platform was presented
and adopted. In it it renews its
pledge of allegiance lo the principles of
the Republican party; congratulates
Presidont Harrison, his wise ami courageous
administration, pledging him
support in the discharge of his duties;
rejoices in the restoration of dignity,
vigor and statesmanship in tho conduct
of our foreign affairs under tho guiding
hand of America's favorite son, James
G. Blaine: approves of the silver coinage
act of the present administration,
1\?? tho nnfirn nrnrlnnti) of thfl
silver mines of the United StateB is lidded
to the currency of the people, but
denounces tho Democratic doctrine of
free nnd unlimited coinage of silver as
a financial policy ublo to precipitate the
people of overy city and overy Stato in
tho union into a prolonged and disastrous
depression, and delay tho revival
Of business enterpriso and prosperity
so ardently desired, and now apparently
near; tfie free and unlimited
coinage of ailvcr would tend to the
hoarding of gold and force the use of
cheap money in the payment of wages.
Wo are in favor of having every dollar
as good as any other dollar.
Wo demand the maintenance of the
American system of protection to
American Industry and labor, the policy
that has been Identified with overy period
of our national prosperity, and wo
admiro the genius oI that heroic statesman,
William McKinley, Jr., whom the
people of Ohio will make thoir next
govornor in recognition of his magnificent
sorvices to the country; wo also
commend and ondorso the policy of reciprocity,
by which the Central and

rates to the producers and consumers of

as will prevent all illegal combinations

1'IIEE ELECTION.
Wo "denounce" tho Democratic party
for its double dealing with the civil and
political rights of tho pcoplo, wherein it
appears to favor free silver and untrainincled
elections in tho Stato of
Nebraska, but never raiseS its voice
niniinst tho political outrages practiced
against the Republican voters, white
and black, throughout tho Democratic
Stutes of the South.
Chairman Webster, on behalf of tho
committee on resolutions, also presented
the following:
Rtnirrd, That tho Republicans of Nebraska
in convention assembled send
cordial greeting to tlieir brethren In
Ohio who are so nobly battling for tho
principles of our pnrtv, for the honest
money and reform and fair protective

Haohtd, Tho delegates of the Republican
party of tho Stato of Nebraska demand,
aa 'a matter of right, that the

be hold west of* tho Mississippi river,
and we most earnestly'join the great
Republican State of Iowa, as expresaod
by their convention July 1, 1801, in

(Signed) "Grovkii Cleveland."
Governor Hill, of New York, among
other things says:

acts it continues to permit tho debasement
of a hirgo part of our currency

Crooked Record!.
Salek, Mass., Sept. 24. ? Another
crowd at court greeted tho opening of
tho third dav of theSearlea will contest.
The examination of Mr. Seurlcs was
continued.
Witness lnul owned an estato in
Methuen twonty-one years. Neither
this estate nor the Great Barrington
property ever went into the co-partnerBliip
assots; the Great JSarrington property
was transferred by deed to witness,
but the deed was never recorded. The
deed was dated February 23, 1888, but
pencil marks on it indicated February 8,
18S)0. This was said to have been done
by tho copvists to give tho date for another
deed. The transter was made
through Mr. Stiinmen, was executed in
Europe. Neither of the deeds wero
recorded.
There was also a deed of 1,500 acres of
timber laud in California. A deed was
put in conveying absolutely to witness
the same property convoyed to witness
by the marriage settlement. This was
made six months after the marriage and
was exocuted in Europe. The title of
the Block Island propertystands in witness'
name. Tho 1'ifth avenue house"
was purchased in witness' name. These
deods were recordod.
No one suggested that theso be kept
from the records so thut neither Timothy
Hopkins nor any of his wife's relative
should know of them.
At the afternoon session the will of
Mary F. Searles, dntc.l November 22,
1887, with a codicil dated June 10, 18S8,
was prodaced. Witness know of the
will, but did not know of its contents
until since his wife's dentil. This will
gave S10,000 to John Ilnrwood, a former
coachman, and the residue was left in
trust to Edward F. Searlos, Timothy
Hopkins and Thomas K. Stillronn to pay
tlio income in equal shares to
Edward F. Searles and Timothy
Hopkins during thoir life time, and on
their death to whosoever they might
dosignato by will, or failing to" mako a
will, to pay to their next of kin. Had
heard Mrs. Searles say that before hor
marriage she had made previous wills.
.She had never told witness that Bhe
hiid promised her first husband to hold
her entiro property in trust for Timothy.
Xever heard Mrs. Searles say when she
lirst saw her little granddaughter:
"Here comos the little heiress." Had
destroyed some letters within a few
wnikha hut. nnnn frnm Mr. Still man or

written by witnose to the lady who was
to bo his wife as be thought them "too
stupid to keep."
Never knew of Mrs. Searlos boing ill
hardly a day, except her last sickness,
which began in May lost. There was a
Christian Scientist, Mrs. Moree, an acquaintance,
called in by Mrs. Soarles in
1S00 to treat her and she also treated
witness for indigestion. Thoro was another

Buffalo, N. Y., Sept. 24.?A elever p
stroke to-day marked tho ilual session e;
of the Priesten VereinorGerman-Amer- tl
ican or clerical Union. A non-member,
and one who speaks German liko a na- tl
tive, so that it cannot be said a point F
could oscape him, wus brought into tho cl
meeting at its beginning and given an ?
opportunity to see it through to close. "
As if to mako the action still more re- f1
uiurkabie the outsider wasan Irishman, j<
with the unmistakable patronymic of "
O'Byrne. Heomingly tho Verein took
this method with the purpose of couu- 8>
teracting, in a way that could not fall ?(
to attract notice, tho unpleasant iin- "
pression caused by their exclusion of
miner Aurcner.
The gist of Futlior Zurcber's charges C1
_was that the Clerical Union was an ?{
un-American secret organization, de- *
signed to Germanize, as far as possible, K'
the control of the Catholic Church in ?1
tho United States by securing the ap- 0<
pointment of members of the union to
highor ecclesiastical ollices, displacing
particularly bishops of Irish extraction
who were not in favor of the German cc
language in America. From all ac- ai
counts nothing dangerous to the public .
weal took placo at tho meeting, -which
was occupied nearly the entiro time in
balloting for oflicers to servo during tlie ?
ensuing year. V
