M Clark ot Lincoln and Dr. Bryant of Norfolk were at 1114 0 street at 2 p. m , to day for the ostensible , purpose of holding1 a middle-of-the-road populist state conven tion , pursuant to call published last week. The hall was immediately taken possession of by about n hundred free silver democrats and populists , and nil attempts to conduct the business of the convention were futile. Air. Clark Raid that so long aa the straight Bryan nnd Watson elector * and candidates r * . * - , for state officers would have to go on the ticket by petition any nay it would bo as well to draw up the petition nnd name the candidates at a conference to be held later. 'William Dcch's manager , Mr. Bouldlng , cald that Dccli will not participate In the jnovomcnt for a state convention. Among the populists present today who are opposed to a Bryan nnd Watson movement were : E. O , Rowlck , steward at the Insane asylum ; O. O. Co6dcll , J , C. McNernoy nnd Warwick Saundcrs. There were many free silver democrats also who seemed afraid of a straight Bryan and Watson ticket In Ne braska. When Mr. Clark had declared his Intention th to move by petition , Mr. Ooodcll seized the Kavel and assumed the chairmanship of the a't convention. He called on Mr. Clark for an explanation ot his position nnd he got It atralght from the ehouldcr. Ho was told that lie , Clark , was in this movement for the purpose ot securing the populist party of or Nebraska from the clutches ot democracy. an Ho said an attempt was being made to sell out the populhts and ho stood against It. Ho denounced the Ignoble fusion by which Watson was to bo betrayed Into the hands of democracy by Senator Allen nnd Governor ru Holcomb. nt In the course of quite a lengthy speech , J. C. McNcrney said that Bill Dech and Paul Vandcrvoort were the Instigators of this movement , and that they were almost alone in wanting to put up another pop ticket. . "Vandervoort , " he said , "Is the worst polit ical blackguard In Nebraska politics , " and the sentiment was loudly applauded. It's Some ono made the remark that everybody was n mlddlo-of-tho-roader. Upon this Mr. Clark exclaimed , "You are about as near the lot middle-of-the-road as you would bo If you were In h 1. " Having captured the "middle-of-the-road" convention , the combination of free silver democrats and pops passed a resolution en dorsing the Holcomb-Allcn brand of populism and the fusion btatc and national ticket and adjourned.

Colson died at his residence on Nye avenue at 1 o'clock this morning. Since his return from the Black Hills , where ho went for his health about a month ago , he has been gradually falling and for the past day or two has been very low. For over thirty years Mr. Colson had been n constant suf ferer from asthma , nnd was obliged for the past few years to spend his summers at the hot springs. Ho was born In Now York state February 13 , 1828. His ancestors came from Sweden to this country In the early part ot the eighteenth century and his grandfather served in the revolutionary war. Ho was educated In the common schools and learned the trade of n shoemaker.

Ho Ihen served two terms as treasurer of Dodge county. Though ot fiall physique nnd always having the appearance of n man whoso days on earth wcro few , ho was an active , energetic busi ness man and amassed a comfortable fortune. Mr. Colson was early associated In the grain business with Thcron Nye , his brother-in-law , the name of the firm being Nye & Colson.

TOKMONT , Sept. 28. ( Special. ) The first load of roots for the American Chicory com pany's drying kilns were brought to the fac tory Saturday , and tomorrow morning the work ot drying and preparfng for the fac tory nt O'Neill the product of 1,200 acres of chicory nlll begin. Work was commenced on the building six weeks ago and today It Is completed , the machinery In position and tested and everything In running order. The main building la five stories high , three stories brick , 32x100 feet In size , anil tno stories frame , 32x109 feet , extending out over a part of the engine room which Is cast of the mMn building. On the lower floor are three largo coke burning furnaces which furnish the heat for drying the roots and extend Into the second story. From the tops ot the furnaces extend ninety pipes for distribut ing the heat , each four feel long and six teen Inches In dlmactcr. The floor of thla room Is brick , so there Is no danger of fire. The third story Is where the roots are dried and the door Is made ot perforated steel plates. The roots are dumped from wagons on cars Into hoppers and carried by three elevators to the top of this fifth story ; they then go over some slats where the dirt Is brushed off and from there to slIctiM machines which cuts them up Into thin strips and are then carried to the drying room. ' When properly dried , scrapers ope ated by machinery carry them to the store house which Is hack ot the main building and has a capacity ot 5,000 tons. The plant complete cost about $18,000. It and the factory at O'Neill , which Is under the same management , are the only estab lishments ot the kind In the state. It will necessarily have to run night and day nnd will employ about twenty hands during the season. The dried roots If properly cared for can be kept for some tlmo and unlike a sugar factory a chicory factory can run the greater part of the year. The company owns a tract of ground ad joining the kiln which Is large enough for a factory and Intends putting 0110 up ready to use next season , so It will be able to turn out the complete product. The chic ory crop Is doing well and Judging from what has already been dug , will run from five to eight tons to the acre. The contracts made with the farmers were executed be fore It was decided to build a xlrylng kiln at Fremont nnd call for n payment of $10.50 per ton delivered at O'Neill. The general opinion among the farmers is that ordinarily chicory will pay as well It not better than sugar beets which moot the test of 12 per cent saccharine content and SO per cent cooillcicnt of purity. w.\vrs IIKII CHIMJ HACK.

NORTH LOUP , Neb. , Sepl. 28. ( Special. ) At the regular quarterly church meeting of the Baptist church , held yesterday , a resolution was passed , the purpose of which was to request the pastor , Hov. J. II.

Ynton Jloforo tlivn < lonnl llniikcrn' Anxoclntloi ! Vlnll ( lie Toinl ) oT Lincoln. Henry W. Yatcs returned yesterday from the annual session ot the American Bank ers' association , held in St. Louis. During the proceedings of the convention the roll of states was called and some representa tive of the state was expected to respond. Mr , Yotes responded for Nebraska nnd the Chronicle hud this to say concerning his remarks : "Nebraska Henry W. Yatcs , president of the Nebraska National bank ot Omaha , spoke ot how well the state had done lu politics , hut said It had not done so well In banks. The banks of Nebraska in the last thrco years had lost $25,000,000. The loss was at tributed to the low price ot grain and real estate , rather than to currency agitation. He hoped the dark clouds ot repudiation would roll away at election and prosperity return to Nebraska. " Instead ot spreading , as Indicated by the Chronicle , Mr. Yatcs said : "Mr. President , Gentlemen of the Amer ican Bankers' Association : It was not my expectation to be called upon to answer the call for Nebraska. In fact , I must admit that until I came here this morning I had not received Into my mind any clear un derstanding of what the 'call ot state' meant. It seems now that It Is a kind of 'experience' meeting In which bankers Join In the good , oldfashioneday , by delivering what conies nearest to their hearts. "I regret to say that our state has r. very small representation here , but It Is seldom that the name of Nebraska can be called , without some one being- present ho Is willing to respond , and so I shall not hesi tate to say something upon this occasion. "Nebraska has done fairly well In politics this year. Wo have been able to supply the nominees of two of the presidential tickets , one of whom Is making considerable nolso In the world just now. Wo wcro also able to furnish the presiding officers for two of the great conventions and I have not the slightest doubt but what we could have filled nil the offices to bo voted for In an equally satisfactory manner. "While we have done so well In politics , I regret to > say thct I am not able to make so good a report In respect to banking. Only recently I have had occasion to Investigate the statistics of Nebraska banks , by compar ing the reports of July , 1892 , with those of July , 1S'J5 , according to the published fig ures ot the comptroller of the currency in respect to deposits. Here It Is shown that the Omaha banks lost during this period about $7,500,000 ; the banks outside of Omaha about $11,500,000. making a total loss of J19,000,000 for the National banks alone. To this should be added not less than $0,0000,000 for the state banks , which In creases the aggregate loss to $25,000,000 , which Is about $30 per capita. "We have heard a great deal concerning the quantitative theory of money , by which It la claimed that prices are regulated en tirely by the volume ot the circulation. If there Is any basis ot truth whatever In the theory , It can apply only to the \olumo of money In actual circulation at any given period , which It would be Impossible to es timate. But In the figures I have mentioned there would seem to exist an excellent ob ject lesson In the campaign of education which Is now being so energetically pressed throughout the country. In Nebraska espe cially we have more financial theorists and teachers ot the science of money to the square foot than exists in any other section ot the United States. "Some things we all agree upon. Wo all know that real estate and all other values are very much depressed. Now , Instead of favoring legislation which would add a de preciated currency to the volume of that now exMstlng , and of which wo could receive no portion as we possess no silver , It would scorn much better for us to Investigate the causes which have led to the disappearance of the money we once had and by assisting In the removal of these causes wo might again receive our full measure of capital circulation. To what extent the loss of de posits by our banks may Indicate some re lation to the low prices of agricultural prod ucts cannot he definitely shown , but when It Is seen that the money conditions which oxlst In Nebiaska , also prevail In other states which produce the same commodities , It Is not an unreasonable conclusion to form , that the withdrawal of this capital Is the primary cause of the low prices , not only of real estate and other securities , but also of farm produce. "It is certainly evident , that when these western states produce large crops as they have done this yen and the farmers are unable to obtain the money with which to purchase cattle to feed their corn to , this enormous crop must bo thrown upon the market tn bring what it will , and thus ntlll Further depress the existing low prices. When the true facts are clearly reasoned out and recognized , which I believe Is now being done by our people the dark cloud of repudiation nnd dishonor which now over hangs us will roll away and the sunshine of prosperity will again gladden our homes and fireside0 " VISIT TO LINCOLN'S TOMB. At the close of the convention the bankers went on an excursion to Sprlnglleld. Ills. , visiting the tomb of ex-President Lincoln Whllo there , Mr. Yates was called upon for an address , and In speaking , he said : "Mr. President and Ladles and Gentlemen : To bo called upon to deliver even a five- minute address at the tomb of Lincoln Is a irlvllego which cannot bo too highly prized although within the brief time allotted no ndcquato expression can bo made of the Bentlmcnt which the occasion Inspires. But wo are reminded that the great patriot who Ios hero has himself limited and circum scribed the scope of all that may be uttered wlthjn these hallowed precincts for using its own words which proved so singularly unprophetlc when applied to himself we may well say , 'The world will little note , icr long remember what wo say here , ' but t can never forgot what this man was who lea dead hero.

The most eloquent tribute to his llfo nnd character , which has been produced , Is contained in n lecture written and delivered by a gallant soldier who once 'wore the gray. ' I myself never voted for Mr. Lincoln when ho was twice a candidate for the presidency , and I never voted for any of those who followed him as the nom inee of the party at whose birth ho assisted , but I do not hcsltatu to declare In common with others like myself , that the character of Lincoln as it has been brought down to us free from the embellishment which flat tery might confer , If It dared bo applied to such a character as his Is the embodiment ot most of what Is good , noble and attractive in American citizenship. "He was a true representative of the cause ho upheld his love and devotion for the union dominated with him all other de sires , but It Is not this which most endears tils memory to the American people. It Is Ills personality which carries the attraction. In this , he Is more truly a typo of the com mon people of this country the 'plain people' as ho himself 1ms termed them , from whose ranks he came. Boasting of no aris tocratic ancestry , he manfully claimed his placed In the ranks of the laboring class , and demonstrated in Ills own person , the absolute freedom of our democratic insti tutions , by rising from this low station to the highest position any man can occupy. "But It may well hero bo asked who are the common people from whom Lincoln , sprang , and Is It trUe that \vc as bankers , according to the edict delivered by one of the contesting sides in the present political upheaval , are to bp excluded from this class , and to be counted as aliens and enemies thereto ? The common people are those who rule and direct the destiny of this nation. They are the men who toll In shops and stores , In counting rooms nnd offices , In lields and factories but among these must bo included the men who bundle the re sults of all thcso activities when they ma terialize ns money. "Tho bankers are as much n component part of the great mass as are any of the (11- rlslons of human labor which join to form it. We arc only the servants and stewards of the people who toll and save , and we are is necessary to them as they are to us. Wo lave done nothing to Injure the Interests of thcso people If for no better reason than that In Injuring them wo should Injure ourselves , and wo protest against the Icmagoglsm which strives to make political : apltal from the peculiar character of the nislness In which wo are engaged. We deal n money , as others deal In merchandise ; ind we have learned , by Instinct It not by experience , to know and realize that an exact measure is absolutely required 7n noney affairs just as It Is In all other busl- icas affairs. Wo naturally object to the ar- iltrary change which It Is proposed shall jo made In this measure , to which we have always been accustomed , and which we mow Is the only recognized and standard ueasuro all over the world. "It Is the holding of those opinions with almost entlro unanimity which constitutes ho sum and substance of our offending. olned with the additional fact , that every irlnclple of business honor and Integrity nrbld our joining In the repudiation schemes of the men who assail us. "The war with which the name of Lincoln vlll bo forever connected was n terrific con- llct between men of the same family and Inrago. There can never again be another uch sectional warfare , let us not only hope , but believe that there can never be a strife of any kind between our own people which vlll set neighbor against neighbor , friend against friend , brother against brother , and hat the Insidious poison of class hatred and ( iverslon which Is now being so Industri ously distributed. Let us who have here gathered together from all parts of the mlon pledge anew , In the words of the great man who lies entombed hern , our love .ml devotion to our country which 'under Qod' received Its new 'birthright of freo- lom * In a union restored and solidified for vhlch union he rendered the last full meas ure of devotion. Let us resolve that wo /111 do our part 'that this dead may not mvo died In vain and that government of ho people , by the people and for the people ihnll not perish from the earth , ' " < 3 * The little folltH are always pleared to receive a box of Haldnff's delicious bonbons and chocolates and the old folks are disappointed \vlicn tlm llltlo folks don't divide up shown a sdllsh- MUSS on Ilui part of tliut , V , that the O.

Senator Thurston has returned from hU eomowliat arduous campaigning trip through the cast. His volco Is much wearied by continual speaking , but ho has renewed confidence In the success of the republican ticket In November next. "I "regard It an obsoluto fact/ ' said tin senator yesterday morning , "that every state cast of the Mississippi and north of Mason and Dlxon'a line will bo for McKlnley. There Is no longer room for doubt. The majorities will not be close , but they will bo dccistvo enough to settle the cheap money fallacy for at least another generation to come. I think it may bo said with perfect confi dence that since the first ten days after Mr. Bryan's nomination there have been no desertions from the Konnd money ranks , but instead the tide Is ( lowing flteadily toward them. Every week from now to election will show the same gain and I bcllevo the time has como when the result is not In doubt. " In speaking particularly of Illinois , In diana and other middle wpstcrn states , which the Uryan managers have placed In the doubtful column. Senator Thurston declared that they would be republican by tremendous deus majorltlra. There was no way lu which they could be considered as doubtful , and ovun the democratic managers knew It. Ho believed that Bryan still cherished a hope of election , but he was convinced that the democratic steering committee had given up hope and was simply making what It knew would bo a losing fight. "There Is strong ground for the expecta tlon that Kentucky will go republican , " added the senator. "General Buckner will carry a big vote to the sound money demo cratic ticket and the democratic vote will bo so equally split that the McKlnley electors stand an excellent chance of clo.tlcn. Kansas Is also likely to go for McKlnley and will nt least elect the republican con gressional candidates. " After his meeting at the Coliseum this evening Senator Thurston will spend the remainder of the campaign In this atate. Ho will go to Des Molncs for one speech nnd to Kansas City for another , and pos sibly ono each In North and South Dakota , but ho will spend n solid month In actlvo campaigning In Nebraska.
