" The republican tate convention -
tion held at Lincoln Wednesday
resulted in the endorsement of
1-Ion. E. : J. Burkctt for United
States senator , lIon. John L.
Webster for vice president and
the nomination of the state ticket
named above.
The convention was without
incident to mar the tranquility of
the proceedings. The big gath-
ering of enthusiastic republicans
was called to order by Chairman
Lindsay who introduced Howard
I -J Baldridge as temporary chairman.
, .
- \ l\Ir. Baldridge made a forcible

address , after wInch the permanent -
ncnt organizating ( was effected by
' \ the election of W. M. Robertson
chairman ; Chas. McDonald secretary -
retary ; \ . . B. Allen assistant secretary -
retary ; ; Ind L. P. Ludden reading
clerk. 'l'he first action was the
endorsement of Hon. E. J. Bur-
kett for United States scnator.
, , This was done unanimously by
acclamation. : Mr. Burkett thanked -
ed the convention in a brief ad-
dress. The nomination of the
state ticket proved an easy mat-
ter. There was practically 110

contests and thc deliberations of
the convention could hardly have
been more friendly or harmonious.
One very especially gratifying
thing that the convention did
was to select C. B. Dempster of
Beatrice tv be one of thc dcle-
gatcs-at-large to the national
convcntion. Republicans in this
part of the state are more or less
familiar with the nature of the
fight that was made on 1\11'
Dcmpster , and a great majority
of the republicans will rejoice
over his vindication.
There has probably never been
a state convention at which Rich-
ardson county exerted a greater
influence than at thc one held
Dodge , Gage and Richardson
counties were the originators of
the combination which selected
all four of the delegates to the
national convention , as well as
all of the state officers , with am-
ple provisions being made for , Mr.
Mill cr.
There is not a candidate who
has not expressed his gratitude
to the Richardson county delegation -
tion , and there never was a ticket
which commends itself to the vo-
ters more than the one which was
nominated , this week.
The orld-H.erald in speaking
oi the convention says :
"The Burlington machine lead-
ers , prominent among whom were
Collector Stephenson , J. 1-1. Agel'
and Supt. Bigncll went down in
hopeless defeat , being mercilessly
trounced by a combination in
which Congressman Burkett and
Postmaster Sizcr , his political
manager played an inconspicuous
but none the less important part.
The victors were lead by Ross
Hammonc1 of Paige , C. B. Demp-
ster and Samuel Rinaker of Gage
and C. F. Reavis of Richardson. "
A. R. Keim and Frank Martin
were present doing all in their
power to defeat the wishes of the
republicans of this county and to
deprive A'Ir. Miller of the object
of his ambitions.
