No abler or cleverer man was over'nominated for any cfiico on any ticket in Nebraska and there Is no doubt of his election. I also know botn candidates for regents nnd consider thorn able young men. Arthur Truosdoll Post is all right. I consider him entirely unimpeachable In character and ability. It was the best nom ination that could have been made. L. M. Keene I think it n juditious nom ination. Ho is a man who will certainly bo ncceptabio to the people. Ho is an able judge nnd n good lawyer. His career on the bench In this district is above reproach. H. B. Schneider I am very much pleased. The convention could not have suited me any bolter. Post is positively clean anu bis record shows ho has never pandered to any body or any element. No faction of the re publican party object to him. James Balding Post just suits me. Ho will be a magnlllcout Justice of the supreme court. Mayor Fried Years of acquaintance with Judge Post has shown mo that ho is a in.m of excellent character and a Judge of exceptional ability. John K. Shervin , democrat Judge Post is a good man. I don't see how the party could have nominated a better man. Post would bo an honor to the supreme bench. 1C. H. Uurnard Post stands very high In my estimation , both ns n Judge and a gentle man. He will ornament the bunch. H. J. Leo-Post will lill the position in a first class manner. Ho is a man who could neither be bought nor cajoled into doing a wrong. J. B. Frick-Tho bar of this district esteems him moit highly. Hois a Jurist of rare ability and a man of high integrity.

Mnyhrlulc and Austin Hldwell tlilna'M Urgent Appeal. Lox6ox , Sopt. 25. The communication from the Pokin government , offering com pensation to foreigners who have suffercd'in the reccntriots In China , with iho strongest assurances of future protection , are received with distrust In the foreign ofllco hero , llsu Cuing Chang , the Chlneso ambassador to the European courts , has recently been in St. Petersburg , whore ho succeaed in inducing the Russian government to with draw from the Joint action projected by the powers. Ho arrived In Berlin today with thn view of trying to influence Chancellor Von Caprlvi , but it is certain that ho will not alter the determination of the German government to co-operate wltb the British In taking decisive measures. The Pekln note , as given to the papers , falls to Indicate the real character ot the appeal made by Hsu Ching Chang to the European govern ments. China. Desires to I'rotect Forclsncrs. Ho has urged that the imperial government was entirely honest In desiring to suppress the disorders and seeking time to deal with the anti-foreign movement , nnd that precipi tate action on the part of the powers would defeat its object and bring China into nnar- chy. His communications distinctly suggest the probability of such a potent political up heaval in China as might overthrow the Manchu dynasty. The panicy feeling existing in Pekln Is made known hero by urgent telegrams sent through the Chlneso embassy , imploring Lord Salisbury to instruct Sir John Walsham , the British minister to China , to adopt a more friendly attitude. Desires a Show of Force. Minister Walsham advises the foreign ofllce that persistent diplomatic pressure , combined with a naval demonstration at cer tain of the treaty ports will bo the only ef fective means to prevent recurrent outrages. Ho complulas that the promulgation of the emperor's edict against attacks on foreigners has boon unnecessarily delayed. Ho asked the officials to use the telegraph in publish ing the edict , but the oflicials refused , saying that there wus no precedent for so doing and that tlio edict must bo distrib uted by the ordinary couriers. The minister also complains of the uncertainty of the punishment of the real leaders of the outrages. If Lord Salisbury supports Min ister Walsham's policy the powers will ac tively Intervene in order to protect Euro peans , leaving the tartar dynasty to take care of itself. In spite of the chaotic state of the present troubles the foreign ofllco hnro hopes thnt the ultimate result will bo an ex tension of trade to important centers on the Yang-tso-Kiang which are now closed , but where the government intends to establish consulates. Text of the Olliuial I'ekiri Note. The following Is n summary of an ofllclal Pokin cablegram received on Monday nnd handed to the foreign oftlco authorities on Tuesday : bpecillc sums nuvo been offered to the treaty powers by China as compensation of the loss of lifo and proporey atVuhu , \Vusuch , Tanyang , Woosein and other places , where disorders have occurred. Four lead ers of rioters have boon executed nnd twenty- ono have been baniabod. Five mandarins have been adjudged culpably remiss in not adopting measures to preserve order and have been reported to the throne for punish- punlshment. The Imperial government , recognizing its entire responsibility for the preservation of order at the treaty posts for the protection of missionaries in tbo interior , has ordered the viceroys of Chinll and Nanking to despatch the northern and southern squadrons to patrol tbo Yang-tsc-Kiang and offer protec- llou wherever the life or property of Eu ropeans is still apparently threatened. Though rumors of further troubles still ex cite uneasiness in certain places , the govern ment has no doubt of Its ability to effectively thwart attempts at gross breaches of the peace , whether from the operations of secret societies or as the result of local or acci dental circumstances. Nothing is known respecting the reports cabled of an attempt to seize the Fee Chow arsenal , but undoubted evidence of activity of secret societies has boon obtained In other ( lunrtera. Thirty-live cases of foreign rilles consigned to a British subject , employed in the imperial customs oftlco at Chlnklang , have been seized by the customs ofllcers nt Shanghai and the consignee has been ar rested and scut to Shanghai for the British authorities to deal wllh. The same man had in his possession n quantity of dynamite , which with the rifles ho confessed wns Intended for the use of n secret society itt Chinkiang. The arms came from Hong Ivong. Three other British sub jects and six other foreigners ( nationality doubtful ) residents of Shanghai , are Impli cated in this transaction , which is being in vestigated. Mr. Gladstone. Arouse : ) Interest. Mr.Gladstono's coming speech at the liberal federation meeting Is Invested with further importance by the authorized announcement that he intends to review Salisbury's foreign policy and declare what his own will bo if ho should again oo placed In power. The feder ation proceedings uro not likely to astonish the world with any startling variation from the cut and dried programme ; but If expecta tions prove correct Mr. Gladstone will maico the meeting inemor.ib'o ' bv a statement of foreign policy committing the liberals to a line of action directly opposed to that of Lord Salisbury. Mr. Morley has already declared that the next Gtadstono administration will accom plish the evacuation of Egypt with tbo brief est possible delay. Letters from Mr. Gladstone to the Servian politician , Yovomovltch , which will appear in tomorrow's issue of the Speaker , uro likely to causa a sensation In Europe , ns they show the widest possible dlvorgenco between the liberal and the present conservative policy. Mr. Gladstone advocates the closest harmony among the Balkan states , repudiates Lord Salisbury's diplomacy , ns tending towards the supremacy of linlgnrla over the other states , and udds that ho feels warmly with the subjected countries of southwestern Europe. As the last phrase can only npplv to Austria's inning possession of Bosnia and Herzegovina , the latter Is interpreted to mean that Mr. Gladstone desires to oust the Austrlnns from Bosnia and to support the formation of a federation of tbo Balkan stales. The Gladstone liberals continue to nrrantjo for the future on the supposed contingency of their being In power by the autumn of 1MW. The conservatives now talk of post poning the general elections until the remot est period , which will bo April , iv.i.'l , In order to enable the government to get tbo Irish local government In working oder.

Ho said the surveyors were hastening their work as rapidly as possible , but he could not say when it would be completed. It is oxpacted tbo opening will take place tomorrow at noon. Tbo people are scattered about so that it is imposilblo to make a very close estimate as to their nutnbor. ICuthuslastic man place the number at ; " > ,000 , Including the milltry , 1,500 seems to bo n fair estimate. Tno northeast quarter of the northeast quarter has been reserved for a public park , possibly because It is so cut up with cliffs nnd gullies , that it has been impossible to survey it. The site occupies an edge of a cliff. It is impossible to go n distance of twenty rods without the use of a ladder. Tbo public square and principle streets are to bo loca'.cd on tbo west half of the cast half. Opening ; of the Chandler Town Site. Captain Styles , with his company of in fantry , arrived this morning. Captain Hayes with his troop of cavalry have been temporarily arily relieved in order to tnko much needed rest. rest.Governor Governor Steele intends , just before giving the signal for the opening of the town site , to have tlio military deployed facing both north and south and drive nil tbo people from the townsite. There will bo soldiers and deputy marshals enough to place the men at Intervals ol about twenty-live yards. The water supply Is still a source of considerable siderablo annoyance. There seems to bo ' plenty of wator'just below the surface and wells are now being dug. Considerable lum ber is arriving and as soon as people who in tend to transact business got a location they will commence to put up buildings. Killed in the Hush for Claims. Ilia reported killing of the man Wood , n former resident of Gutbrio , has been con- llrmcd. Another man was killed south of this place while engaged In the race Monday by his horse making n lunge over a deep gully. Horse and rider were both killed.

A great many wagons arc trailing back over the Cherokee strip with people who failed to got claims in the Indian lands opened last Tues day. Almost all of thum will drift about living under canvas , waiting for the strip to open. They seem to feel that everyone on tbo strip is their enemy and are said to bo firing the trass in hundreds of places. They don't know when they are on the strip or when they are on the Indian reservations , nnd the reservations along the Snntn Fo have suffered greatly. About Ponca yesterday - torday the grass was burning on every side , and It was only after a hard light that the houses , a little way from the station , ware saved. To the west the whole line of the horizon was a wall of smoke , looking like , a great chain of mountains covered with snow to their base. Thoprass is cottlng very dry and burns readily and the lircs are sure to cover the larger part of the strip and render it useless for winter grazing. OUT Till ! ir. lllfJCII. .
