Scarcely had the news flashed over the
wires on Monday that Harrison had been
nominated before tnere was a universal
i and eacrer sentiment expressed for a rati-

not beincr nominated until evening, the
meeting was necessarily postponed. On
Tuesday an immen se number of badges

this office, bearing the names of Harrison
and Morton. .Every itepuDiican is anxious

Although there had been but little time
for nrenaration. at an early hour the
streets were thronered by large crowds
anxious to take Dart in the demonstration
The North Platte band had been engaged,
which discoursed patriotic airs at the corn
er of Sixth and Spruce. Fire crackers,
Roman candles and bombs were freely
used giving things the appearance of a
young Fourth ofJuly.
At half past eight the torches were
passed out, and there was at once a rush
to procure one as the number of torches
was limited. By 9 o'clock the procession
was formed, marching, proceeded by the
band, throueh the principal streets, the
torch-bearers in their evolutions present
ing a pleasing and gorgeous . spectacle.
Arriving at the court house, the torches
were stacked and thelarge court room
soon crowded, there being room for not
more than half who desired admittance.
Proceedings at once began. There
were no icebergs in the room, every one
being warm and ready for business. The
meeting was called to order by Dr. Buck
worth, chairman of the North Platte Re
publican club, who suggested that J. I.
Nesbitt act as chairman. On assuming
the chair, Mr. Nesbitt spoke briefly
but to the point, stating that it was a
meeting, a spontaneous outburst of Re
publicans, to ratify the glorious nomina
tions made at Chicago. Necessarily there
could be no attempt made to discuss the
issues of the campaign, but which would
be fully and freely handled before the-
battle was over. The speaker paid a
glowing tribute to the nominees, whose
public and private cnaracter were witnout
blemish or stain. Men of eminent ability,
they were honored and respected by
every American citizen. Tneir nomina
tion received the hearty endorsement of
Republicans of every faction. He had
yet to near of a singlet word or disap
The first speaker introduced was Judge
Stacy of Anamosa, Iowa, who happened
to be in the city on business. He was
most agreeably surprised to see the en
thusiasm displayed by.the Republicans of
Lincoln county. It was an augury of
coming victory, a sentiment which pre
vailed all over the land. His remarks
were received with outbursts of applause.
But our -limited space forbids giving
even a synopsis ot tne numerous
speeches. Every speaker heartily rati
fied the nominations, for himself and his
The following local speakers were in
troduced and spoke in the following
order: R. H. Langford, J. W. Bixler,
W. T. Wilcox, Rev Adam Stump, H. M.
Grimes, and A. H' Church, the band ren
dered music between speeches.
The meeting was closed amidst the
greatest enthusiasm by Mr. JNesbltt in a
five minute speech, wmcn ue tnrew
down the gauntlet to the Democrats, chal
lenging them to joint discussions of the
issues before the country at any time or
times they should see fit.

The bandana has apparentty lost its
grip in this city. For a few days follow
ing the selection of the Democratic nom
inees, enthusiastic Demos flaunted the
red cloth from their hatfe, but now they
wear it deep down in their coat pocket.
However, let them wave the bandana, the
American flag is good enough for Repub
licans. The Telegraph says there were fifty
three torches in the Republican parade.
It is possible for a Democratic editor to
be in such a condition as not to be able to

thirds of the parade passed.
A very pleasant social party was held
Thursday evening at the home of Charles
Upright," master of the Brotherhood of

the Platte River Lodge by the wives and
lady friends of the boys. Appropriate
speeches were made and some excellent
music rendered by the 3Iaster and his es
timable lady. Later on refreshments
were served and at a seasonable hour the
crowd seperated, each vowing that it was
good to be there.

of trees on his tree claim that it has been
our pleasure .to see in the west part of the
state. The seeds were planted two years
ago last month, the rows are as straight
as if a line had been drawn and the seed
planted by it. Many of the trees are
from seven to eight feet high, the rows
are four feet apart, and the foliage is so
dense that a person, standing4between the
rows, can see but a short distance. Any
person seeing the unparallel growth that
these trees have made in two years, and
one of them the dryest that was ever
known in the west, would surely be con
vinced that trees grow here as well as
corn. Paxton Pilot,
