Nebraska Republicans In their con-
Tentlon made a new record for bar-
ronlous work. Beginning at 2 p. in.
the convention transacted Its business
and was ready to adjourn three hours
later. The nomination of Court Com
missioner John n Barnes for associ
ate justice of the supreme court had
' /or weeks been forecasted and his se
lection was more In the nature of a
ratification than a contest. The two
uccessful candidates for regents of
the university , Charles S. Allen and
"W. Q. Whltmore. were nominated on
the first formal ballot. President
Roosevelt received hearty commenda
tion and a declaration was made for
bis renomtnatlon.
The unexpected feature of the con
tention was the adoption by unani
mous vote of a resolution declaring
John L. Webster of Omaha , one of the
delegates to the convention , to bo the
choice of Nebraska Republicans for
vice president in 1904. The resolution
. was offered just before the convention
iva.a about to adjourn and was received
\vith enthusiasm. Mr. Webster ex
pressed his thanks in a speech of con
siderable length.
Chairman Lindsay called the con-
Tentlon to order and Introduced as
chairman former State Senator
Charles Sloan , who made the principal
address of the day , congratulating the
party on what he said was a united
front to a divided opposition. He de
clared the Republicans of the state
and nation were a unit on Issues and
men. Following the appointment of
committees , the ticket was nominated
uud addresses made by the nomine 3.
On National Issues.
On national issues the convention
declared as follows :
"We adhere to the protective policy
of the Republican party , which has
Increased the revenues and not impeded -
ed trade ; which has opened the doors
of mills and factories to millions of
American skilled mechanics and Is
returning to them the higher wages
which are the just recompense of their
tolls.
"The republican party recognizes that
legitimate business fairly capitalized
and honestly conducted , has Increased
our industries at home and expanded
our trade abroad and enabled us to
successfully compete with foreign
countries in the markets of the world ,
tut the Republican party is unalter
ably opposed to all combinations of
capital , under whatever name , having
for their purpose the stilling of com
petition and arbitrarily controlling pro
duction or fixing prices.
' "For the nation's defense , for the
strengthening of the navy , for the enlargement -
largement of our foreign commerce ,
for the employment of the American
Tvorklngman In mines , forests , mills ,
factories , and ship yards , for the en
hancement of the value of farm prod
ucts , wo favor such appropriates legis
lation as shall make the seas give evi
dence that American built , and Amer
ican owned and American manned
ships are carrying American foreign
commerce to the four corners of the
earth. It Is the wish of the Repub
licans of Nebraska that every ship
that carries American goods and Amer
ican products Into the harbors of for
eign nations shall sail under the Amer
ican flag.
"The Philippines are ours as the
legitimate and crowning result of honorable
orable- warfare , and wo hold them not
lor barter or sale , but as a part of the
nations ! domain , made sacred to us by
the American blood whlc.li has been
ehed to plant and maintain the Stars
and Stripes upon the Islands of the
Pacific ocean. Under the administra
tions of Republican Presidents Mc-
Klnley nnd Roosevelt , the people of
those Islands have received the bene
fit of American laws ; of being edu
cated In schools conducted by Ameri
can teachers ; their burdens are being
lightened , their hearts are being glad
dened ; their homes are being bright
ened ; and their children are being
dedicated to a wider and purer civiliza
tion , and we shall ever guard and pro-
Jcct them as an Inheritance as sacred
to UB as are the principles of liberty
and good government. The possession
of those Islands , as a means of educa
tion to our people of what lies beyond
the Pacific and the awakening of our
ideas to the possibilities of our future
trade with that territory , has already
proven a blessing of greater worth
to us than tl < e entire cost of the war.
"Wo congratulate not only ourselves ,
but the people at large , that the admin
istration of our national affairs and our
negotiations with foreign nations are
being conducted by the courageous
republican president , who knows no
fear , who courts no favor , but who
lores peace crowned with hon-
r and In whose charge we
bay * a Reeling of nerf c $ safety.

Amwican people now desire to honor

TRULOCK EXPLAINS TROUBLE.
Writes a Letter Concerning the Base
ball Mix-up Last Week.
[ From Tuesday's Dally. ]
Editor News : I noticed In the Issue
of The News of August 10 , ah article
under-the headlines , "More Thnn Two
Gnmes" which refers to a "side show
at the ball gn I e on Sunday afternoon. "
If you will kindly allow mo spnco In
your Interesting papar , I will say n
few words about some of the perform
ances that took place there. I will
style this "scene ,2" ns the most inter
esting act In the tragedy Is to follow
In the nenr future , and renders of The
News will bo looking forward to the
finale of this drama.
On Sunday nftcrnoon , August 9 , n
number of boys began passing through
my yard , and I was soon nrousud by
n noise north of the house. Not over
250 feet from my residence were n
mob of baseball fans , consisting of
middle nged men , young men nnd boys.
They howled nnd yelled while they
took i'l the game. I approached a
young tnan who hnd a Bat In his hand
nnd naked hm who wns running the
game. Ho didn't know. I told him I
objected to their playing there , nnd
nsked them to move on n block cast ,
as it annoyed me. Several assented ,
and did not seem offended. At this
juncture , the fellow who assaulted me ,
styled "Captain Butch Mnrqunrdt , "
rushed up , his sleeves rolled to the
elbows , and shouted wildly , "You are
a soru head and if you want to fight ,
here is your chance. " I told him I did
not want to light and for him to goon.
At this I parried off his blows with
my right hand as well as I could. Af
ter he hnd mnde many passes nt me ,
he landed n blow on my cheek. I
dropped my glnsses nnd paper that I
held In my hand during the time he
was striking at mo. und prepared to
defend myself , when his courage failed
him and ho slunk nwny. I would nd-
vise him to train , for If It takes forty
or fifty passes for him to Innd one
blow on the cheek of a man sixty
years old , how many will it take to
knock out a man 120 years old ?
To the law abiding citizens of Nor
folk , I wish to ask : Hns the time
come when you will stnnd nsido nnd
allow the sporting element of the city
to invade the vacant lots Inside the
corporate limits of the city , nenr your
homes , mnrk out ball grounds , nssom-
bio there on the Sabbath to play ball ,
yell nnd scronm ? Whllo they violate
the laws of God and man and en
courage your boys to do so , It Is an
example to the children that will lend
them to the bad. If you nro. then I
hnvo mnde a mlstnno in asking thnt
mob to move on. The one black eye
( not two , ns wns stated ) I consider
a badge of honor to any citizen who
has the courage to defend his home
surroundings from invasion by a mob
of base ball sports.

KO that now no matter whuthor Shields
cashes in or not , he will not wear
