W. Johnson & Son The Popular Clothiers, fete and Liberty Streets. Is Not Expected to Abandon the Chicago Platform. Madison, Neb., Sept. IS. Hon. W. S. Allen, chairman of the Populist national committee, mailed to W. J. Bryan, the following letter, olllcially notifying him of his nomination by that body: "lion. W. J. Rrvun. Lincoln Dour Sir: At a convention of the People's Party, held at St. Louis, July 22 to the 2jUi, or the current year, you were unanimously nominated for the prcsi dency of the United State, to be voted for at the approaching general election. It was known at that time that you had been nominated by the Democratic party at its convention, held at Chicago a few days before that time, and that you would in all probability accept the same In a for mal manner. Your nomination by the People's Party was not, therefore, made with any thought that you were a Populist, or that you accepted all the doctrines declared for by the St. Louis platform. It was due largely to the fact that the money question is the overshadowing political issue of the age, and because you have at all times been an unswerving, able and fearless advocate of the free and un limited coinage of silver and gold on terms of equality at the mints of the United States at the ratio 10 to 1. It was thought also that the observance of a patriotic duty required a union of all reform forces,- and the convention took the liberty.' without soliciting or consulting you, of placing your name before the people as its staudard- bearer. "The convention was, in doing so, guided by deep solicitude for the com mon welfare, and. acting on Its own motion, piompted alone by a desiie to bring about the best attainable re sult. So much has been said respect ing the rehabilitation of silver by again placing it in our acts, in the position It occupied when stealthily demonetized by the act of 1873, that it would be Idle for us to discuss the question. You will observe by the closing language of the St. Louis platform that the convention recog nized the money question as the great issue of the dav. and because Popu lists believe you are in accord with them on the question you will receive their ballots In November. It is not pxnpftd that vou will abandon your adhesion to the Chicago platform, nor that you will accept all tnat is ae pVitpA in the Ponulist platform, how ever gratifying the latter would be to all Populists. It must do unuersioou t lint the nartv does not abandon one jot of loyalty to Its principles. We have declared lor many rerorms, in our judgment essential to the libera tion of the people from the present unjust industrial bondage. In accord ance with the precedent of our party, we take this method or nouiying you of your nomination, we snau not send a committee, according iu m nnrtv customs. In sending you this letter of notification of the great honor that hasso Justly been conrerrea on you by our party, It Is needless for us to assure you that you have the confidence and esteem of all. Your splendid abilities, Known inregrii, competency and fitness for the pos -tlon Justly entitle you to a high rank among the great statesmen of the nation. We feel that, In the event of your election, which seems certain, you will carry Into the executive office the principles of money reform, to the end.that the people shall enjoy better industrial conaiuous. i . not anticipated that this can be done with undue hasto or so suddenly as to wrench or to disjoint the business interests of the country, but that It . .- ,!, rrmriimllv and in a way to Infuse confidence and hope of better , conditions for all. 'J- ne reuic i -., will exact of you no promise further hin those made in your public utter J ciand Exemplified In a life devoted , Site welfare of the race, nor will It . ask you to abandon the party of which you are an honored member. . .. ny your nomination our party has , arisen above partisan surroundings, So a high plane of patriotism, 2SS that a division of forces' would result In the election of "Will lain' McKlnlcy, the foremost advocate of a deeply burdensome and unnatural taxation, and the criminal policy of single gold standard, resulting ultl mately,lf not InsoniemannereheckedJ In the complete destruction and dis integration of our form of govern ment. Your elevation to the chief magistracy of the nation would be re garded as a vindication of the right of the people to govern, and we enter-. tain no doubt that you will prove aj worthy successor of the Immortal Jefferson and Lincoln, and that your public life, like theirs, will illustrate; the purity and loftiness of American' statesmanship. I " Your extensive and Intimate. knowledge of public affairs and thd duties which they impose, gained In a, life that has been devoted to upholds ing the cause of the people, as well; as your keen Insight Into the con dition of our cause, in our Judgment highly qualities vou to bring about thee reforms in a way that will work! injury to none and justice ttt all, thus. making our government In fact, as it is now in form only, a government 'for by and of the people,, We have the honor to be your most obedient ser vant'. William Vincent Allen, "Chairman." The letter bears the signatures ;of the 48 delegates appointed to repre sent the states and territories. Senator Butler, of Sout,h Carolina, chairman of the populist executive committee, has offlclaiily notified T., E.

In his speech at Frankfort, Brya'n emphasized the statement of last night, that those who did not believe in the free coinage of silver (Demo; crats or Republicans) should vote the straight Republican ticket. Bryan was conducted to the platform In the court house square under an umbrella which was knocked aside cvercy minute by the .efforts of his southern admirers to grasp his hand. During his speech of fifteen minutes rain continued but the audience kept asking him to go on. MI E REPUBLICAN Official Returns. Little Rock, Ark., Sep5., 1G.

Majority in History, OVER 41,000 AGAINST 83,000. 20,000 Will Have to Be Gained to Win the State. Postland, Me., Sept. 15. The re turns from the small towns nnd plan tations In different parts of tho state are as usual coming In slowly. It Is not probable that all of them will be heard from before tomorrow. The vote from the cities and towns which poll more than two-thirds of the en tire vote Indicate, however, a Repub lican plurality between 48,000 and 50,000 the largest In the history of the state. In every county tho Re publican ticket was successful. Al most every town showed a Republican gain. The Democratic vote is about 40 per cent less than In 1802 About 20 per cent of tills has gone to the Re publican ticket. The othor half are stay-at-homes. The vote of Populists and Prohibitionists throughout the state shows a loss from 1892 of about 25 per cent. The total vote Is esti mated at 125,000 In round numbers.

Madison, Neb., Sept. 15. Senator Wm. E. Allen, temporaiy chairman of tho St. Louis convention and later chairman of tho Populist notification committee, Bald today. "The result In Maine was anticipatcdl as that statu was believed to bo under com plete domination of tho money power It will have the effect of largely In creasing tho silver vote west, and uniting all the discordant elements." THE MAINE ELECTION. Returns from Maine cause great Jubilation among the gold standard advocates. In 1888 the total vote cast was 128, 250. In 1892 the total vote was lie,. 410. Monday tho total vote was 124, 000. In 1804 tho Democrats polled 30,021. Monday It was 34,340. There was evidently a considerable stay-at home vote. Tho gold stand ard Democrats helped the Republi cans. The regular Republican vote Is from 00,000 to 80,000. Tho result In Maine Monday affords no cause whatever for goldlto Jubila tion. The situation is unchanged. Drowned. Cottaoh Gitovi:, Sept. 15. Peter Thuson, while at work on a dam at Jone's sawmill, 17 miles from here, sell Into the water and was drowned yesterday.

A Journal Editor's Notes En Route to Iowa. ST. LOUIS, 9-10, '90. Our third days' ride on the Union Pacific was through the state of Ne braska and brought us to tho first re freshing vegetation In 30 hours. However the coach full of genial pas sengers made the lime pass lightly. In parts of Idaho we found some su perb home-raised peaches, which were nearly as good as the Oregon product, and they were gathered In by tho Jolly travelers at an astonishing rate. An octogenarian from Indlnna was with us, who did not discuss the financial problem, but ho had the science of economics down to-nOnc poinU. He said he had on his Sunday clothes and was very much distressed at the damage they would sustain, '.lis Sunday hat, however, was still in Hooslcrdom, and that was about the only gratmof comfort he enjoyed on the trip. He lived for about 25 cents a day, Including tho cold lunch he car ried, and took pride In giving the crowd the benefit of his pioncor hard ships at getting a dollar ahead. It seemed a pity to hear an old man with ono foot in tho cemetery toll how he must save, und cling to a penny with an eternal grip. Yet-in these days of broken banks and "busted commu nities," tho old man's philosophy would prove n boon to many an ono who cannot tell where his next meal was to come from. Ills teaching and practlco had a very practical side, yet how cold and blank a life! Wo also had a veritable "Uncle Josh Whltcomb" with us, who mndo royal sport for tho whole party, and charmed all with his generous simplicity. Ho offered tho porter a tip of 5 cents with us much delicacy as though ho wero upproachlng royalty with a money recompense for kindness. But when his sincere impulso was repulsed, tho porter became sorry Indeed that ho had demanded 50 cents for "greasing" his boots. Although deeply chagrined tho "darky" could not help but enjoy tho rare fun with which tho old man bubbled over. For a samplo of his original "breaks," when a passenger had given him some olives during luncheon, the old man blurted out: "Well,' them's the first pickled wal nuts I ever tasted." After wo struck the dry sand beds of the Platto river tho stubble fields and crops of corn begnn to appear. In central and western Nebraska crops aro light, and selling very low. Wheat 33 cents, and corn 10 cents per bushel, while oats wero worth about 10 cents. In tho eastern portion of the state, however, crops aro very good,although wo supposo prices aro no better. Perhnps it was owing to nativo pre judice, but the crossing of tho "big muddy" Missouri rivor seemed like passing over into tho promised laud. Here the beautiful oak groves aud rolling hills, with lino farm houses and barns, sleek cattle and a spirit of thrift feasted our eyes from 5 o'clock until dark. Tho old Hawkoye state Is again blessed with mammoth crops, and as tho farmers hero havo con quered tho old "single standard" of raising only ono thing, thoy aro more prosperous than ever. This year they havo fruit In abundance, even In tho northern section of tho state, which adds much to their comforts as well as profits, as most farmers In tho middle states must have a few barrels of apples for tho winter. I nave ulmostpromlsed not to wrlto about politics, but oh that Is about the only topic of conversation on trains arid streets, as well as In overy little circle, It is difficult to avoid tho subject. Before leaving -Salem I. had concluded with others of llkobeller thnt Hrvan and free silver would carry all the states west of tho "father SPAIN YIELDS AT LAST Minister Taylor Has His Own Way, CIVIL, TRIALS ARE GRANTED.. General Weyler Not Pleased With the Decision. igt aid to change that con-1 tho f ut: A. F. II. today. Washington, Sept. 15. Tho Span-' Ish government has yielded to the dc mnnds of tho United States for a trial by a civil court of tho Competitor prisoners. Authentic Information to this effect has reached tho sta to de partment officials, and tho formal announcement is expected lu the next mail from Minister Taylor In Madrid. The Spanish government readied this conclusion some tlmo ago, but has delayed tho formal an nouncement of Its decision until after the cortcs adjourns, In order to oscapo criticism from that body for making concessions to tho United States. While expecting this decision, tho authorities have becomo very Impa tient of lato over tho long delay on tho part of the Spanish ministry In complying wlththodomaudsfora fair trial of the Competitor prisoners, who havo been In prison under a death sentence Imposed by a drumhead courtmartlal, for nearly llvo months. Petitions havo been pouring In on tho state department from all quarters, urging prompt action In behalf of theso men. Despairing of favorable action on tho request for a civil trial, somo of theso petitioners urged that an appeal be mado to tho Spanish ministry for tho pardon of tho men. Tho department has had no Intention of asking for a pardon. Secretary Olney has Insisted from tho first that the men wero Irregularly tried and In violation of- express treaty stipulations. Ho requested a retrial, not by way of favor, but us a matter of right, und In answers to In quiries from members of the senato committee on foreign relations, ho emphatically stated that tho adminis tration would never submit to tho currying out of tho sentence of tho summary court martial. It Is a matter of considerable relief to tho authorities hero to know that Spain has found it expedient to com ply with tho demands of tho United (States In regard to theso men. For ('somo tlmo past It has been considered ono of tho most troublesome questions between the two countries. They will, however, watch with somo concern tho effect os tho decision in Spain nnd among the Spanish In Cuba. It Is understood that this action will bo a great disappointment to Oaptuin-General Weyler nnd other Spaniards who wero anxious for the xccutlon of tlio men as an cxumple for others engaged in filibustering, but It Is hoped that tlmo has served toullay tho bitter' feeling which ex isted In Spanish quarters when tho men wero captured. It was stated thou that General Weyler would re sign If tho Madrid authorities over ruled tho decision of tho drumhead courtmartlal, which ho upproved. Tho Defense of Dynamite. New Yomc, Sept. 15.
