Ir Paddock writes another letter

him with another speech for prestige
and plunder , there vron't ba a greasa-
pot left of the Pcddock boom.
HON. J. W. DAWES has reason to
feel proud of the compliment paid
him by the convention in giving him
more votes than were received by any
of his colleagues on the Chicago dele
SOME very malicious politicians in
sinuate th t Brooks made that "pres
tige nnd plunder" speech for the benefit
t.f General Tan Wyck. Wo don't be
lieve a word of it. Brooks means to
ilie with his boot * on with Paddock.
CAPTAIN MITCHELL , of Otoe , earned
his seat in the Chicago convention by
the terse and vigorous speech he made
on behalf of tbo plumed knight. It

If the fight made on behalf of Gen.
Grant in Illinois is kept up much
longer tbe prospect for carrying that
state for him in case he is nominated
ia very dubious. The fact is , this at
tempt to force Grant on the country
will imperil the success of the party
in half a dozen states even if he was
nominated by acclamation.
JOHN SIIEKMAN has been accused of
u-ing the patronage of the treasury
department for his presidential boom.
If that was true , how comes it that
John Sherman's commissioner of in

Springfield , presiding over the Illinois
republican convention , at the instance
of John A. Logan , as the champion of
Gen. Grant ?

During Ihe mcst trying times when no

, bis papsr has boldly upheld the rightsa

and we only regret that our sugges

differences may ba nnde. The at
; empt on tha part of the Smelting
Works managers to replace their lite

From Kansas and Missouri is likely to
precipitate a ccnflict that may end in
a bloody riot.
In this crisis we deem it our duty to
appeal to Omaha m-rkinsinon for for
bearance. However aggravating the

A Spirited Contest Amicably

Proceedings in Detail.
COLCMBUS , May 20. The rapubll
cad ttata convention , which closed its
labors at five this morning , after an
all-night's cession , was by all odds the
moat imposing political assemblage
ever held in Uubraska. It excelled
all previous conventions of all parties ,
not only in point of numbers , but in
tLo array of brilliant forensic tale at
and the superior intelligence of the
entre : bo3y. The contest between the
followers of Grant and Blaine was
spirited throughout , and at times quite
exciting. The Grant minority VTS.B
compact , well organized and handled
with adniirabletict by veteran loaders.
The Bhine inun , relying on their
superiority of numbers , were
not as well disciplined and coma-
times too magnanimous in
the nimusiou of contestingdelegations
of opposite complexion , who subse
quently were used with effect against
them. The turning point of the con
test was the defeat by a very close
vota of the attempt of the
Grant leaders to procure
vote by ballot insteul of viva voce
by counties which compelled every
man to show his colors.
The entire proceedings wore char
acterized by remarkably good feeling
and a disposition to avoid perionali
On Wednesday evening , after sun
down , the Columbus opera house , n
large wooden structure , with audito
Hum on the ground floor and a seat
ing capacity of about four hundred
including the stage , presented an ani

The stage had been draped with na
tional colon , and the floor had been
divided among the rcspcotire counties
by standards designating each delega
tion. Admission to the hallf iras b ;

to a particular seat numbered on hi
cird. By 8 o'clock , when every dele

was called to order by Hon. James

mitteo. On motion of Mr. Cowin , o

that time I never have been disposed
to turn back on U. S. Grant , and cer
tainly am not so disposed now. This

the service of what 11 dearer than life

Far be it from me to depreciate the
brilliant gallantry of James G.

the chairman said , "Come to
order and let him tell tha real
abaut Elaine. " ] Whatever the result
of this canvass , one thing at least is a
certainty : there is no disposition to
put a personal preference in the place
of our own convictions of right.
Fiist I of all , we are republicans ; alter
that , we miy be for Blainp , Grant or
some other person who may yet be
8I named. [ Applause ] Whatever the
issue cf the republican convention
may be , we all hero and now pledge
ourselves to work unitedly for the
triumph of the ticket. My conception
of what is policy ia this : General
Srant gives promise of being a
letter can'didato than Jiiy other ; and
1o cannot fail to be as good a candi-
dnts as any other. The colored people
ple of the south will take more
: hances , run more jeopardy to cast
their ballots for U. S. Grant than for
any other republican. Superstitious
; hey m\y be in their ideas of Grant ;
jut if they are , they will all the more
risk their lives for him. If this be to ,
.he duty of the republicans of the
north is clear ; it h to remove the
odium of having deserted the only
class of citizens in the south who stood
y the union on the field of battle.
For many long years my friend
Laird and myself have worked tcgath'
or in party relations. Wo differ now ,
jut not much. The name of Grant ,
[ agree with him and with you , should

ican convention. Nor lesa earnestly ,
es candidly , less purely shall we cs-
eein that other man who in other
iolds hai been as great as Grant has
teen in bis I mean James G. Blaiue.
Great applause. ] And even although
i man once served in the army , ho
may be for Bhino .without reflecting
n any measure on the candidacy of
7. S. Gr < mt. But , as for me , I am
not committed to not support-
ng another ; I can earnestly and
onaistently support any republican
gainst any democrat. [ Applause. ]
Vbcn rebels wee in arms General
3rant was the proper man to lead in
he campaign against them , but Abra-
iam Lincoln was 'ho proper man for
reiitl nt. And now , wh'n rebels ,
iving laid down thuir armi , through
heirvo'ei having found their way in-
o congress , and have to bo mot face
0 face there have to to met not
with arm" , but to be met w.th their
ravodo attempting to br < 3 k down
he loyaUy and loyal men of the north ,
we need a statesman at the helm , like
"anios G. Blame. At the outbreak of
he war James G. Bhine raised Ma
land and his voce : in favor of every
nnn who had gone into" the field ; it
was under c'lvumstancoj similar
, o these that he said to the
mdgidiers : "You cannot come hero
and attempt to capture the govern
ment , " and he stood almost alone in
that endeavor. And how are we to
day to meet the men who have been
enemies of our g..vtrnmenU With
guni and swords ? If si , then do wo
want a man familiar with war to lead
ns. But if the rebels a-e not to be
net in the field with arnw , but are to
confronted in Washington wilh
speech , then we want a man to leal the
people who can appeal to the IOIEOU
ind to the patriotism of the people.
Such a rain is James G Blaine. I
rust that hi will bo nominated , "nnd
sure 1 am that if he is , not ono cf you
who hear me doubts that he will bo
Mr. Thurston , who appe red very
i-arte , said that in spits of his illness
ho was j > ltd ti meet tho'republicans of
Nebr-isk * as he had met them fur
many yu.irs. As in the past , so to
night and after this ; republicans may
d'ffer as to the m ° rits of candidates ,
but when the majority has decided
whose hand is to tke the banner of
Republicanism , and plice it on the
summit of the citadel of liberty , where
the democracy shall ragj agtinst
it without avail , the republican
parly will Etaad by that man

unshaken before Donolson , stormed

who through four years of war mot

of the ocean , and rant it asunder
that ia the man fortbe nation in these
troubulous and threatening times fo
call to tbu presidency. I do believe
that the sober , earnest , thinking men
of the party are prepared here and at
Chicago to take into consideration all
the ficla , and select a man who can
be elf cted who shall be seated andwho
will preserve this nation.
After alluding to the many good
things that had been so well said ,
Gen. Van Wyck said that this * pocta
cle of republican intelligence , patriot
ism and harmony was the grandest
of tributes to libarty and free govern
ment. So long as citizens can come
together in the spirit manifested here ,
and discuss the qualities of tha candi
date for a great party's suffrages , the
republic is safe and the patty is safe.
All the speakers had expressed the
sentiments of the great republican
party of Nebraska. And while we
look on General Grant as
the greatest of American sol
diera , and the first cf the
great soldiers .of the world , we
look upon Blaine as the first of Ameri
can statesmen. After referring to
the factious a'nd partisan discords ol 1
the past among Nebraska republicans ,
and expressing the hope and convic
tion that a change had transpired for
the better , the speaker made a beauti
ful and touching reference to the Ia
mented Frank Welch , whom ho pro
nounced "one of
the grandest men
Nebraska ever had to represent her in
congress His was a nobla character ;
if opposed to you , his was nl
ways a manly opposition. He ,
then a mere boy , wai among the first to
answer the roll-call when the rebels
fired on Sumtor ; and afterward.-
the peacaful pursuits of buariRss , am
in the amenities of social and politi
cal life , ho won hh way to the hearts
of his friends andto the respect o
the people. Recalling his excellcn
cies of character , his personal graces
his fidelity to his friends , his loya
services to tha people prompted ono U
utlcr the pathetic words of the poet
O , for the touch of a vanished hand ;
The sound of a voice that is still.
And now that ho has gone the feel
ing of partizan-bitterness , if such ovei
existed , has passed away ; and so le
ns hope will it be after these present
contests are ouer , and wo one by one
have gone to join the multitude bo
yond. " If , concladed-tbe speaker ,
the politicians and the newspaper
would cease to traduce public men who
have trud to do their duty , we shoulc
hail the coming of the political mil
lenium. Butaso the two eminent
citizens namsdhero , Grant and Blaiue ,
we may be sure that after the strifes
are over , their
memory will find an
eternal lodgment iu the American
heart [ Great applause. ]
\Vhataver our personal preferences
yba , there are underlying tbcie
the sublime principles of the republi
can party. 1 am a republican because
1 want to sse tlrs csnntry rich , pros
perous and free , and I believe the re-
pubhcan pwty will win because its
principles lia tto neatest to theiear.'s
of the people. The strnggb going O
o-day is as old as the government ; it
s the consummation of the principle , .
aid down a quarter of a j 1 I
century ago , of a free constitu- *
ion for a 'then slaveholding
people. And now , just as the full
rictory isdawning upon us , we should _
lot let go the principles or repudiate j
he men who established them. Forgive -
give the traitor wo may , bat we should i |
till denounce the treason. To-day to j 1
he loyal and true is given the keep- (
ng of the nation's or the party's fate. | j I
We do not simply teek to select a '
man , but aim to vindicate a principle , '
nd to carryforward the stmdard of
reedom to perfect victory. To effect i j
his there is needed , in our candidate .
and in the executive of the nation , a j '
firm hand and a heart tint has the
eve of all the people an abiding and
eternal faith in the sovereignly of the

Col. Chaie f aid that it had not been
lis fortune in Nebraskas it had so
often been in Wisconeio , to as-ist in
ho atate conventions of his parly.
This was the first convention in which
le WJS a delegate. His nnmo , howev
er , had been in two cvnventious bs-
bra this , but only as a candidate. He
was impressed with theinlellegence of
bis assemblage , and the remarkable
alent displayed , and could not but
iclieve that the convention would in
all things ait wisely and well. When
he party names its man , he would do
all in hi ) power to help elect him , no
matter whether he ba our distinguish-
cd civilian and statesman , our great
military chieftain or our patriotic dip-
omat. The paople will see that who
ever ia elected chill take his seat.
3utwe must not overlook the fact
hat there is a large element that hon
estly feels that a third term tends to
wards imperialsm ; ( mingled applause
.nd . disapprobation ) . This santment is
chiefly prevalent among American cit-
boin abroad who-nlread monar
chies , and fear anything tbat might
tavo monarchi il tendencies. It may note
> o eo with us here , but there are those
who exprers this fear. The speaker did
not want to see such a man as Blaine
lounded down and kept out of office
> y machine politicians. And is it ,
after nil , so certain that the man you
may nann h gofng to bo elected ? We
must tike the man who can carry the
most states. In conclusion , seid Col.
Chase , "let us fight this thing out un-
il we'at-rio , and then agree to fight
when we hive pgred" [ Applause
and hughter. ]
Chairman Collins introduced Mr.
losewau-r "little that
a man can
ay more and do ultra than any other

I ara here to represent the sen-
iment in favor of the nomination of
Fames G. Bliino. I am for him this
ear because ho would to-day bo

with sixteen other solid BUine men
rora Douglas county. If that is a
Sherman boom I think Blaine and his
riends can staid it. I am in favor pf
six delegates who are know to be in
hrir teniitnonts and their affiliations
'or Jamss G. Blaine. This conven-
ion ( hould so instruct Twenty years
ago ho was ia Alabama , at the begin-
> ing of tha rebellion , aad participated
.here with the people who wore in
"avor cf yreECiviug the Union. It re
quired greater mural cjurago to do
.hat , than it did for men in the north
o ' 'hurrah for the boya" and play at
iiome gtiDrds. I have been represented -
ed by political enemies as a confederc
a'.o gympathiz r I risked my life
with the bys in blu3 in two campaigns
in Virginia. I WBS fort.'n months-in
the wr department in the telegraph -
graph office rf Pro ident L > n-
cola , rii'l I transmitted with
my own hands tbe first proolama-
tioa rf emancipation. Does
that look like treason ! I have been a
republican since ' 56. I came to Ne
braska in ' 63 ; and from then until
now I have always been an active sap-
poster of the republican party. I favored -
vored Grant for his first nomination ,
and I supported him for his second ,
though fearing his avail ibility. It is
now fifteen years after the war , aud
we do net need a strong man clothed
in mail and surrounded with bayonets
mid cannon. Wo w.vit a statesman
who has the sympathy of the people ,
and if they elect him they will te.it
that man. The second suber thought
of the republican { -arty will give us a
statesman at the head of the govern
ment "who knows enough to know"
what the country needs in peace.
All this talk about ceiling the next
president ia bosh. Any man who is
elected by the people will bo eoatcd
by them , and no reputable republican
could advocate the seating of any man
who was not elected The coming
campaign is to bo hotly contested , but
he confidently looked forward to a re
publican triumph in November. It ia
charged that I have Eorne subtle do-
sign. I have come here to woik with
the men.who are frr Bhino. I have
never sought for any office since I
have published a paper , and shall ac
cept no office as long as I edit a paper.
I seek no honors at the hands of this
convention , and my only ambition to
day is to elect a delegation for Blaine.
I can state my position in a very
few words. For six years I have been
in favor of the nomination of James
G. Blaine for president of the United
States. This fall I expect to have a
chance to vote for him.
Mr. Dalus Brooke , editor of The
Omaha Republican , slid : My views
briefly expressed are in accord with
your eminent representative in con
gress that Nebraska should teud a
delegation that will insure us prestige

cries of "Shame ! shams ! " ]
Paul Vandervoort made an earneal
appeal for the silent mm. He bad
been for Grant since 1868 and favored
him now because , in his opinion , ho
was the only man who could divide
the solid south end take his re.it i1
of Otoe , said ho was not ono of those
who believed that the salvation of the
country depended upon any one man.
Grant was a brave and patriotic gener
al. So were Sherman , Sheridan , and
Thomas , tha grcstest lloman of thorn
all. The timohas now como to reward
statesmanship , and James G. Blaine
will be reinitiated at Chicago one
was drawn out of the chair by loud
calls , and made a very telling speeoh.
He p id an eloquent tribute to the
great Elihu B. Washburne , who , he
thought , could pall the solid vote of
tha men that "fought nv.t Sigel , " and
finally closed by expressing the hope
that tbe sentiment of the republican
misses of Nebraska , which were so
emphatic for Blaine , would be carried
out by the convention.
Nebraska's ox-contingent , said he was
not a delegate , owing to circumstances
over which he had no control. Four
years ago his roica was raised for Ben.-
Bristow ; now he spoke for his suc
cessor , John Sherman , who sared the
country by his management of the
national finances.

Among other things where Santa Claw stayed ,
Children oft ask if he mates Roods or not ,
If really he lives in a mountain of snow.
Lost year an excursion sailed dear to the Pol *
And suddenly droppedlnto what seemedlikeuhols
Where wonder of wonders they found a now land
vfhile lairy-like beings appeared on each hand.
There were mountains like ours , witn mort
beautiful preen ,
And far brijrh'-er kies than ever were seen ,
Birds with the hacs of rainbow were found.
While flowers of exquisite fragrance were grow
fnir around.
Not long were they left to wonder in doubt ,
A being soon came the/ had heard much about
Twaa Santa CUns' eelf and this they all say ,
He loked like the picture tt ee erery day.
He drove up a team that looked very queer ,
rrwas a team f grasshoppers instead of reindeer
He rode In shell Instead of sleigh.
But he took them on Ixnrd and drove then
He showed them all over his wondtrful realm ,
And factories making Roods for women ind men.
Furriers were working on hats great and tmall ,
To Burce's thev said they were sending them alL
Kris Kinzle , tbe Glove Maker , told them at once
