SATUBDAY, FEBRUARY 18th, 1888.
CALL FOR THE REPUBLICAN NA
The National Bepublican conven
tion is called to meet at Chicago on
the 19th of June, 1888. Each state
will be entitled to fonr delegates at
large and for each representative at
large two delegates, and each con
gressional district, each territory
and the District of Columbia two
delegates. The delegates at large
shall be chosen by state conventions
and delegates from congressional
districts by district conventions.
An alternate delegate for each dele
gate shall also be chosen. Under
this apportionment Nebraska will
be entitled to ten votes.
MR. BLAINE'S LETTER.
It is with feelings of genuine re
gret that Mr. Blaine's ardent admir
ers read his letter declining to allow
his name to be presented to the Na
tional Republican Convention for
nomination to the presidency, and
yet many of them believe it is the
best course for the party that Mr.
Blaine can pursue. Remembering
the fierce hatred with which he was
fought not only by the enemy but
by numerous leading members of
his own party, many Republicans
who have always stood by him and
will continue to do so, feel that it is
not wise policy to unnecessarily
jeopardise success by placing in
nomination one who has so many
bitter personal enemies. In states
manship and in every element that
makes a true and genuine American
Mr. Blaine is to-day the foremost
man in America. His election to
the Presidency would be a joy and a
triumph to those who have followed
him for years, and an honor to the
party aud the nation. But not
withstanding his eminence and
ability, if he lacks the element of
success, he should stand aside and
let the party choose from among
those who possess the qualifications
that will insure victory. We are
satisfied that Mr. Blaine looks at
the matter in just this light. His
patriotism to party and country
prompts him to the course he has
taken a course that makes him all
the more popular with the people.
STATE CONVENTION OF REPUBLICAN
Geo. D. Meiklejohn, vice presi
dent of Bepublican National League
for Nebraska, has issued a call for a
meeting of Republican Clubs of
Nebraska at Omaha Thursday,
March 15. Each club of twentv
members is entitled to three dele
gates, besides the president who is a
delegate by virtue of his office. The
convention shall not name, recom
mend or nominate any candidate for
office. The primary object of hold
ing the convention is the organiza
tion of a state Republican League.
A strong sentiment prevails now
in favor .of Phil Sheridan for presi
dential candidate. Belonging to no
clique or faction, without having
committed himself to any particu
lar line of policy other than the gen
eral principles of the party, the Gen
eral would be elected without a
question. We believe he is a man
of iron will, with small sympathy
for cringing politicians or office
seekers. He will not be popular with
this class. Judging from his
actions while a soldier, he will be
autocratic, with an inclination to
have a policy of his own. We fav
or taking the candidate from civil
life, who will be more in sympathy
and work more in harmony with
the leading men of the nation.
Since the declination of Blaine, at
the head of the list stands John
Sherman, with, many others who
are easy seconds. Let us select a
man from among them.
Bayard's fishery commission has
patched up what he and the English
papers are pleased to call a "treaty."
As we understand it the "commis
sion" has no authority to draft a
treaty. In fact, so far as this gov
ernment is concerned the members
have no authority to do anything
but talk. Their labors are princi
pally wind, and Secretary Bayard
appears to be the bellows.
D. R. Locke, editor of the Toledo
Blade, but more familiarly known
as "Petroleum V. Nasby," died at
his home in Toledo Wednesday.
He was fifty four years old.
Our supreme court has recently
decided that a married woman may
carry on business and make con
tracts in the same manner as if she
were unmarried. We supposed this
point had been settled long ago.
The Dorsey bill designating
Kearney, Norfolk, Omaha, Lincoln,
and Hastings as places for holding
U. S. courts in Nebraska passed the
house on Tuesday. There are in
dications that it will have a rocky
time in the Senate. It should be
amended .there by striking out Kear
ney and inserting North Platte..
, Mr. Ed. do not think I've desert

notes written up every week, but
the fact is, Wallace is growing so
fast and our merchants' business is
increasing so rapidly that it takes
all the postage stamps our worthy
P. M. can get to supply their wants
and consequently I am left out in
the cold: but our P. M. has made
special arrangements with Uncle
Sam to send us a carload more or
less per month so I think hereafter
you will hear from us regularly.

Some parties are boring a well at

This is the first experience in this

Our literary and debating society
is still thriving and the interest
manifested is something unusual.
The house is crowded to overflowing
every night. The question for last
Saturday evening, the 11th, was:
Resolved, "That free trade, is better

United States than the present high

was represented by Frank Wallace
and B. A. Shinkle; the Negative, by
Chas. Reynolds and J. W. Nation.
After quite a lengthy discussion the

Our post office has been removed
from the drug store to the Herald
office. This, I believe, will give the
best satisfaction of any location in
town. Boxes are fitted up and our
mail will hereafter come regularly.
J. W. Nation and J. H. Seaton,
each received a fine line of agricul
tural implements last week.
I noticed in last week's fferdld a
call for an attorney to locate here.
An attorney would do well here, but
a lumber yard would do better.
We are not so particular about the
yard so we get the lumber, as we
already have two yards but.no lum
ber. What our farmers and mer
chants ought to do is to ship their
own lumber, as one of our mer
chants did, and we glory in his
spunk. Give us a company that
can carry a stock of lumber, not a

It is a fine piece of work and a
credit to Wellfleet. The rest of the

There was a 'grand hop at Wm.
Parcels a few evenings ago. A
large crowd assembled and enjoyed
themselves hugely. None but the
best homesteaders of the country
were there and that is the reason
why it went off so smoothly.
Wm. McConaughay, of North
Platte, a son-in-law of John T.
Labille was in the neighborhood of
Dutch Flats with a view to taking
a homestead. He was well pleased
with the country. Come on, Wm.,
we need more good citizens like you.
Charles Lock thinks a good tem

He and his associates will probably
try to organize one here and I wish
them success. Probably they could
influence the fair sex to take good
advantage of leap year.
Mr. W. C. Elder contemplates

butts of tobacco were missing. Fergu
son reported the loss to the officers who
succeeded in finding the missing tobacco
under a pile of hay belonging to Frank
Shoefelt, at Hiles sales stable. A negro
who had been in town two or three days
was charged with the theft and placed
under surveillance, but Monday morning
he was gone and "nobody knows whar."
It is said the negro denied stealing the
tobacco and implicated a white man, but
as the negro is gone the white man will
probably go free for want of evidence to
convict. The necro had helped to put
the hay in the stable, where the tobacco
was found, on Saturday. In this con
nection it might be -well to state that
there has been an unusual amount of
petty thieving in town for a few months
past, and hardly a merchant has escaped
the loss of small articles from their
shelves and connters. It is only a ques
tion of time and the strong hand of the
law will grasp the theives and give them
a shaking that will be remembered
