In the city the delegates chosen ore nl most unanimously anti-fusion , ana some of tin county products arc the same way. The rumo ailoat that the democrats will place a ful ticket in the Held and then attempt to scar < the independents into endorsing two or thrc of the democratic slate has excited some o the indopcndonts , nnd they say that u surely as 11 motion is made to endorse two o the democratic ticket It will bo followed b. motions to endorse two of tbo republicai and two of the prohibition ticket , and thoi to appoint a committee to hunt up som otlior party to endorse. The outlook fo fusion Is not as encouraging us It was a wcok a"go.Ono Ono of the populists who has been on dcavorlng to complete the fusion , In fact the most prominent , was let out of his delega tion Saturday night , and will have to watuh the fray from tho.strangers' gallery. Kudorsml In South Dakota. Judge William A. Gardner of the Sovont South Dakota district was In the city a fov hours yesterday on his way homo from Chicago. Judge Gardner has recently boon complimented by tht ) 'rnpublicans of his dis trict , bolng ronomlnutod for the bench 311 the lirst ballot by thViinanlmous vote of the convention. Spcakfhg of the situation ,0E Nebraska , Judge O'uVdncr said to a BEE reporter : " ' "Wo have had Just' such a struggle In South Dakota , buti'succcedod in roiiomi- natlng the old benohv This was u dacidod victory for thA people iu that Alalo and a vindication of purity 'on the bench , I sin cerely hope that Jurtgo Maxwell will bo j" nomlnatod by the republicans of Nebraska , and in saying this livoico the yontlmentof tbo bar and bench ofi thu northwest. Judge ; Maxwell is cortalnlya prominent figure in western Jurisnrudeuuc-r-a line lawyer , and has dollvured soma > 'strong opinions. He is an honor to his sU.to , and ills stuto can poorly afford to retire ihlin from the service ; of the public In thorcnpaclty in which he has so lone and so wo\\ \ served the people. iuI am sure that the entire bar of the west will welcome the announcement that ho hai been given tbo nomination ho so richly deserves. " WILL HAVE TO COMPROMISE Senator Mnnderson Declares that the Repeal Bill Must Bo ModiGetl.

WASIIINOTOX , Oct. 2. "There will bo a compromise. The repeal bill bofoto the ionato will bo amended and ndopten. This may not como under two or three weeks yet , but It Is the Inevitable . result. It is almost ridiculous , to my mind , to talk about passing the bill in Its present shape. " This is what Senator Mandoison said to TUB BEE correspondent this afternoon re ferring to the outlook of * thn hill to uncon ditionally repeal the silver purchasing act. Senator Mnndcrson occupies a position on the silver question which , taken in connec tion with his experience and close personal relations with senators upon both sides of thu subject , enables him to express an opinion especially valuable. 'It is not true , " said Senator Mandorson , 'Hint , na has been announced In the Now YorK newspapers , 1 have been busying my self on the republican side of the senate to secure a compromise.If there Is to bo u compromise it must lirst meet the approval of President Cleveland and then bo sub mitted on the democratic side of the house. What I have said about compromise was to democratic senators. Muni Ho .Muna-jml by Democrats. ' 'It will bo In especially bad tnato for re publicans to sock u compromise. Congress wus called together In extraordinary session by n democratic president to unconditionally repeal the silver law , and ho has at his back u decisive minority In both branches of the national legislature. The conduct of this bill is by democrats , and whatever Its fate may bo it will bo duo to domocratio manage ment. Therefore , any compromise must be presented to the semite on the democratic side of the chamber. Individually , I favor a compromise. \\ould provide for the adop tion ot n bill repealing the purclmslng clause ot the Sherman net and tit the same tlmo creating a law which would enable the sec retary of the treasury , at his discretion , to sell bonds for the purpose of replenishing or increasing tlio gold reserve. The bill would nlso provldo for the coinage of 50,000,000 or 00,000,000 ounces of silver solgnorage in the treasury into subsidiary money. The bill would nlso provldo for the purchase of 200,000,000 or 00 , < KM ) , < H)0 ) ounces more of silver bullion as n commercial commodity nnd to be represented by the issuance of certificates. But there should be a definite tlmo llxed , and that not very far olsuuit , when the pur- clmso ot , silver by the government , for any purpose whatever , would stop. " This' proposition of Senator Mandorson's meets with much favor. Omaha' * IVntofllco. Senator Mnndcrson nnd Representative Mercer called today upon Secretary Carlisle atd ( a conference ensued in which a final determination of the Omaha federal building question was reached. .Both , of the Nebraska representa tives stated to the secretary that they desired granite used iu tlio superstructure and the contract to be awarded at the earliest possible day. Secretary Carlisle said ho had como to the conclusion , after consulting with Supervis ing Architect O'Kourko. that it xvould bo better , even though the appropriation would not r.dmltof dressing nnd carvimr the gruti- ito , to do that work after the mater ial was - t.put' in the wall and to use it in the rough. This agreed upon , the secretary said howould see Architect O'Kourko , and that the contract would bo awarded this week. The contract , ho said , would i'o lo Drexel & Son of Omaha , whoso bid on granito' was the lowest. Colorado pink granite will bo used instead of Minnesota seta granite , as the Colorado product is the lighter in color and handsomer. Smith Dakota's fish Hatchery. Senator Pottigrcw today made inquiry nt the headquarters of the fish commission about the anticipated report which is to be made upon the Investigation into the feasi bility of establishing a fish hatchery in the region of Hot Springs or Spearflsh , S. D. The senator secured an appropriation of $1,000 , in Iho last congress for the purpose of makine an investigation with the view to hatching lish In southwestern South Dakota and supplying the streams thereabouts and the investigation was completed some time ago. ago.Ho was informed today that the attache of the commission who made the investiga tion -was now In Tennessee and would not return fo the city under some weeks. Ho also learned that the report upon the South Dakota investigation will bo. made to con gress some tlmo this winter , together with the , result of other kindred investigations. Senator Pottigrow is confident that the fish commission will recommend the establish ment of 'a fish hatcticry either at Hot Springs or Spoarilsh , where the conditions are favorable , and when the report is made to congress ho intends to make an effort to secure an appropriation for the work. The senator hits taken a keen interest in the question of supplying the rivers und lakes of the great northwest with fish , and ho sees no reason why South Dakota streams and lakes should not also be supplied by the government , and with this object the estab lishment of n fish hatchery iu thuBlackiliills will bo u great convenience and saving of tlmo and oxponses. The question is ono < of great interest to northern Nebraska , as that section would have Its water.courses sup plied with fish from the South Dakota hatch- ery. MliaellnneoiK.
