A Fearless Delegate Offers a Res
olution Indorsing the Cleve
land Administration.
OMAHA, Neb., Aug. 22.— an ef
fort was made to conciliate any war
ring elements in the ranks of Ne
braska Democrats, it was not in
evidence at the state Democratic con
vention today. Prior to the session
there was some talk about the silver
and gold wings of the party com
bining, but if such a plan was seri
ously contemplated it was early
abandoned. From 2 o'clock, when
Chairman Smith convened the body,
until 11 o'clock tonight, when the
curtain went down in the hall, silver
was the only apparent financial prob
lem before the convention. But it
was essentially a convention of the
advocates of the white metal in the
party, and the other wing ignored
the mutiny today and will convene
at Lincoln Sept. 5. Edgar Howard
was made permanent chairman with
out opposition, and the following
nominations were made by accla
mation: For supreme court judge,
E. J. Phelps; regents of state univer
sity, Dr. H. S. Blackburne and J. K.
Kettle. After speeches of minor im
| portance, bubbling over with silver
i sentiment and opposition to the A. P.
I A., the committee reported the fol
! lowing resolutions:
"We, the Democrats of Nebraska, in
convention assembled, reaffirm our
faith in those principles written in
the declaration of American, independ
ence and emphasized by Jefferson and
Jackson, namely: That all men are
created equal; that they are endowed
by their creator with certain inalien
able rights, among which are life,
liberty and happiness; that govern
ments are instituted among men to
secure these rights, and that govern
ments derive "their just powers from
the consent of the governed. And we
demand that all departments of the
government, legislative, executive and
judicial, shall be administered in ac
cordance with these principles.
"We affirm the declaration adopted
by the last Democratic state conven
tion, held in Nebraska, Sept. 26, 1894.
We believe the restoration of the
money of the constitution is now the
i paramount issue before the conven
! tion, and insist that all parties shall
plainly state their respective positions
upon the question, in order that the
voters may intelligently express their
preference. We therefore declare our
selves in favor of the immediate resto
ration of the free and unlimited coin
age of gold and silver at the present
legal ratio of 16 to 1, as such coinage
existed prior to 1573. without waiting
for the aid or consent of any other
nation; such gold and silver coin to
be full legal tender for all debts, pub
lic and private. We send greeting xo
our Democratic brethren throughout
the Union who are making such a gal
lant fight for the restoration of bi
metallism, and congratulate them
upon the progress made.
"We deprecate and denounce, as un-
American and subversive of the prin
ciples of free government, any attempt
to control the action or policy of the
political parties of this country by
secret cabals, or organizations of any
character, and warn the people against
the danger to our institutions, whether
on religious, political or other differ-
I ences of opinion. Recognizing that the
stability of our institutions must rest
on the virtues and intelligence of the
people,- we stand, as in the past, in
favor of the free, common school sys
tem of this state, and declare that the
same must be perpetuated and receive
liberal financial support; and that the
management and control of said school
system should be non-sectarian and
"The Democracy of Nebraska ap
proves and commends the declarations
of President Cleveland in the past, con
demning the pernicious activity of in
cumbents of federal offices under the
government in attempting to control
the policy and nominations of their
parties, and we hereby recommend the
renewal of the policy of his first ad
ministration In that regard."
A delegate attempted to place the
following before the convention as the
minority report: "We commend the
administration of President Cleveland
as being able, patriotic and honest, and
reaffirm the platform adopted by* the
Democratic national convention at
Chicago in 1802.7
Scarcely had the first word been ut
tered when the whole convention was
in an uproar. There was such a noise
that order was not established for ten
minutes, when the offending resolution
was tabled without comment. Tonight
Hon. W. J. Bryan and other Ne
braska Democrats addressed the con
vention on financial issuses.
Cautioning His Friends Against
the Combine'
HARRISBURG, Pa., Aug. -22.—Uni
ted States Senator Quay came to Har
risburg this afternoon and will re
main here until after the Republican
state convention, which Is to meet
next Thursday. A caucus of his fol
lowers has been called to meet in this
city on Tuesday evening. Senator
Quay tonight issued the following
•statement: "The leaders of the combi
nation against me have given up all
hope of defeating me, except by means
of the direct bribery of fifteen or twen
ty of the delegates who have hitherto
be n favorable to me. To accomplish
this result agents of the 'combine' will
be sent to almost every county in the
state. These people will tempt the men
who have been elected delegates
with large sums of money. I hope my
friends will be on their guard, and
will promptly take measures to make
public ; the efforts of the 'combine'
bribers, and will speedily bring them
to justice. Without such desperate
methods it is impossible for me to lose
control of the convention."- - ' ; .;.

Injury to South Dakota's Corn
\ Crop Is Reported.
Special to the Globe.
HURON, S. D., Aug. 22.— weekly
weather bulletin, made up of reports
from forty-two counties, says: Over i
most of the south half of that por- !
tion of the state lying east of the j
Missouri river, in the ' Black hills I
country, and in scattered localities J
elsewhere, corn and other late crops
suffered from dry weather and the
very warm and drying winds, especial
ly where rain was reported needed
last week, while in other localities
where good rains occurred the preced
ing week the condition has improved
more or less, but not generally, and
some localities that had the rains re
port damage from the drying winds.
The injury to corn was probably
greater than to the other crops, and the
late likely suffered' more than the
early planted, as much of it was in
the milk stage a week ago, and it is
thought that some of the early was
too far advanced in the most southern
counties to be permanently injured.

A. " Parker today for the second time
filed suit for divorce from Everett
Parker, although the probate court
had already granted her a decree -of

PHILADELPHIA, Pa., Aug. 22.— C.
Stuart Patterson, chairman of the ex

Sound Money league. In, reply to a re
quest for a definition of the phrase
"sound money" today, said: "Sound
money is of only one of two possible
kinds— first, that whose market value
as a commodity is equivalent to its
face value as money; or, second, that
which is representative in its char
acter, and, having little or no market
value as a commodity, is convertible
at par into money of the first kind. It
is obvious that, within the terms of
this definition, gold alone is sound
money of the first kind." -'- ;•' ,

-WASHINGTON, Aug. 22.— The act

thorizes the statement that informa
tion has been received from Ambassa
dor Eustis, in response to urgent in
structions cabled to him some weeks
ago, that the record of the proceed
ings and evidence in the court-martial
of Mr. Waller at Tamative are ex
pected to reach Paris toward the end
of this month. Mr. Eustis also re
ports that access to Mr. Waller has
been accorded to him, after repeated j
and urgent requests made on the reit
erated orders of the department of
state. The. department not having
been advised whether Mr. Eustis. has
taken advantage of this permission to
delegate, a competent deputy to visit
the prison, near Clairvaux, where Mr.
Waller is at present confined, and con- ;
fer with him, Mr. Adee has instructed
him by telegraph that he should do so
at once, if not already done. Mr. Adee
adds that this result, reached after re- '
peated telegraphic instruction, shows
the constant activity of the depart- ;
ment of state in Mr. Waller's ' case,
and it is hoped that the production of J
the evidence before the court-martial
will enable the department to form a !
judgment touching the conviction, of

the case of the American citizens late
ly tried by court-martial in Honolulu,
on charges of .treason to the govern
ment of the Hawaiian republic, . the
proceedings of the court were asked
for and the documents were promptly
forthcoming. The delay of the French
government in responding to the first
demands of the United States in Mr.
Waller's case has not been fully ex
plained, although it was alleged that
the record of the proceedings of the
court . which tried him remained in
fact in Tamatave, notwithstanding
that our consul at that place was in-;
formed on April 17 that it had already
been sent to France, and the delay
had been occasioned by the necessity
of sending for it. The department has
no later information of the movements
of Mrs. Waller and her four children
since the dispatch of Consul Campbell,
of Port Louis, Maritius, announcing
that under the department cabled in
structions to provide them with pass
age home, they were to sail from that
place for France on the 20th of this
month on their way to the United
States. Mr. Eustis has been instruct
ed to take care of Mrs. Waller and the
children on their arrival in France,
and to furnish them with passage, for
the United States by steamer.

to employes, and $800 in gold ' was
paid to certain employes on August

statement this afternoon, Secretary
Morton said that, while under the
recent payments there had been
strenuous objections on the part of*

disbursements of gold met with no
protests . whatever. He added that

Manderson Adopts a New Course
•:■■ in Re the Sugar Bounties. '
WASHINGTON, Aug. 22.—Ex-Sena
tor Manderson today telegraphed
Comptroller of the Treasury Bowler
that he had forwarded a motion to re
fer the whole question of. the payment
of the sugar bounty appropriation to
the secretary of the treasury, on ac
count of the peculiar language of the
appropriation, which he claims takes
the matter out of the hands of the
regular accounting officers of the gov
ernment. The language upon which
the motion is based is as follows:
"The bounty herein authorized to be
paid shall be paid upon presentation
of such proof of manufacture and pro
duction as shall be required in each
case by the commissioner of internal
revenue, with the approval of the sec
retary of the treasury, and under such
regulations as shall be prescribed by
the commissioner of internal revenue
with the approval of the secretary of
the treasury, and for the payment of
such sugar bounty the secretary of the
treasury is authorized to draw war
rants on the treasury of the United
States for such sums as shall be neces
sary, which sums shall be certified to
him by the commissioner of internal
St. Paul Team -May - 31*
revenue, by whom the bounty shall be
disbursed, and no bounty shall be al- i
lowed or paid, to any person as afore- j
said upon- any quantity of sugar less
than 500 pounds." ..„;
If Mr. Mdnderson's motion prevails
it will take the question of the bounty
payment entirely out of Mr.! Bowler's i
hands. While the language of the act j
seems to give color for the claim that .
the secretary of the treasury should •
issue warrants^ directly on the certifi- j
cates of the commissioner of internal I
revenue, it. is identical with that of the |
original McKlnley bounty, which lan- I
guage was not treated, either by the I
last or the present 'administration, as
taking those disbursements out of the I
hands of the regular accounting of
ficers of the government. .

proposed to put up an amount suffi
cient to pay the cost of a recount, pro
viding the Times deposits a like
amount. If ten more names were
found the enumerator was to bear the
expense, and if not the Times was to
pay for the work. The Times has ac
cepted the proposition, and it is likely
that there will be a recount

Endeavoring to Show That Tlicrtf
Is No N. P. Property in Judge- /
Jenkins' District,
Special to the Globe. ~l*i
NEW YORK, Aug. - 22.— The '
Deutsche bank, of Berlin, which con- i
trols absolutely a majority of North
ern Pacific seconds, has decided, ac
cording to the best authority, to co
operate with Mr. J. Pierpont Morgan
in whatever plan he may approve, for, !
the rehabilitation of Northern Pa-*»
ciflc property. This gives Mr; Mor
gan complete control of the reorgani
zation. A statement, which is evi
dently official, gives the net earnings
of the Northern Pacific at approxi- |
mately $6,689,782. From this, how
ever, officials claim there must bat'
deducted rentals, including interest,'
taxes, and the earnings of branch,
roads not owned or covered by,
Northern Pacific mortgages, which, ]
for the last year are stated at $2,351,
--839. It is claimed, therefore, that the j
real net earnings are $4,337,943, or. |
about $2,000,000 less than the pro-'j
posed guarantee of the Great North-]
era company. Out of these have to"
be paid charges which it is claimed I
are obligatory to retain the main- 1
line intact and prevent the receiver- 1
ship from being in default, amount
ing to $4,366,822, thus showing a defl- '
cit of $28,879 for the year. Mr. Hill's
friends still maintain that the ne**
gotiations between himself and Mr.
Morgan are yet pending, and haya
not been broken off, as has been said. '

Argument Begun In Court at Set
at tie.'
SEATTLE, Wash., Aug. 22.— The '
hearing on the application of Bray
ton Ives for the removal of the re
ceivers of the Northern Pacific com-'
pany began here today before United
States Circuit Judge Gilbert and United
States District Judge Hanford. The j
argument was mainly confined to the I
question of- the : jurisdiction -of Judge*..
Jenkins. There were half a dozen op
more. lawyers. on eacb-side of. l the ? case*;
Soon after court convened the receiv
ers amended their answer to the appli
cation for the order to show "cause,, but '■
did not materially change it. Then Col.
Pettit put in an affidavit, signed by the'
board in New York and the secretary,!
of the company, in which the latter
alleged that at the time the foreclos
ure bills were filed the company held
no property whatever in Judge Jen
kins' district. :."V'*j
Harold Preston made the opening ar
gument. He said that the receivers'
were appointed first onoer the Win-!
ston bill. At that time the company
had leased the lines in Judge Jenkins',
district, but the receivers terminated,
the leases and were ordered by the!
court to remove the rolling stock from
the Eastern district of Wisconsin, so
that when the foreclosure bills were
filed later the company had no leased '
lines in the district and the rolling
stock which was there should not have
been there, the court having directed
that it should be removed within thir
ty days. The evidence in the case, ha
maintained, showed that there was no
property in the district described in
the mortgage, z Then many author*-'
ties. were cited to show that under the
circumstances Judge Jenkins did .not!
have jurisdiction. '''•'■■
Mr. Preston finished at noon and*
this afternoon Assistant General!
Counsel Bunn answered him for the
receivers. He spoke for an hour and
three quarters and submitted to the
court the following propositions of law:
"1. The jurisdiction of the circuit court
of the Eastern district of Wisconsin
cannot be collaterally attacked In this
matter, and the court should not even,
consider the allegation of want of
jurisdiction. 2. But if the matter can
be inquired into here the record be
fore your honor shows clear jurisdic
tion in said court in Wisconsin. 3. If.
the jurisdiction of the court be either,
presumed, or found on examination to
exist, familiar and settled rules of
comity should lead your honor to re
mit the petitioner to that court, them
to object to its jurisdiction or to
prosecute its charges .of misconduct'
against the receivers."
Judge Flanders, counsel for the
Farmers' Loan and Trust company,
followed with an argument, and ex-
Senator Dolph, counsel for the com
plainant..occupied the rest of the day.
Dolph did not finish, and a recess was
taken until tomorrow.
Rumor That They Are Building at
Road to iron Mines.
DULUTH, Minn., Aug. 22.— An even
ing paper tonight publishes a story to
the effect that surveyors, under the
charge of a relative' of the Merritts,
were surveying along the bay in the
vicinity of West Duluth and Spirit
lake, and that they claimed they were
surveying for a line to Cloquot. The
paper assumed that the survey was
for a new line to the Mesabi Iron range
and that it was to be built by the Mer
ritts. Alfred Merritt Is out of the city,,
but Lon Merritt tonight pronounced
the statement a cock-and-bull story.
It Is certain that the survey, if one is
being made, Is not for a road to the
range, leastwise not one for the Mer
i ritts. . _- -, ' .-i
