Republican County Convention.
The Republican electors of the County of
Lincoln are requested to send delegates from
the several precincts to meet in convention at
the Court House, in the City of North Platte,
Batarday. September 28th, 1889, at 10 o'clock a.
m-for the purpose of placing in nomination
candidates for Treasurer, Clerk, Sheriff, Judge,
Clerk of the District Court, Superintendent of
PaUic Instruction, Surveyor, Coroner. Commis
neaer Third District, Nine Delegates to Repub
lican state Convention. Delegates to the Tenth
JacKcial District Republican Convention and to
trarnrt such qtlier business as may be presented
to the convention.
The several precincts are entitled to represen
tation as follows:
North Platte No. 1 ... . fi
North Platte No. 2. . . .7
N orth Platte No. 3 .... 4
Bird wood 1
Deer Creek 1

to twenty-five votes- and one for
each major fraction thereof; some
one for eachtwelve, but the major
ity believed that the old basis of
one delegate for each twenty votes
and one for each major fraction
cast for the Republican electors
last fall would give a large and
representative convention. This
was adopted. The date set for the
convention is, in our opinion a lit
tle late, but it will give five weeks
for candidates to make themselves
known to the people. If they are
pretty lively they can get over the
county in that time. The unani
mous expression from members of
the cammittee was to elect a ticket
from to to bottom.

THE OFFICIAL CALL.
We publish this week the offi
cial call for the republican State
convention. Formerly long cam
paigns were fashionable but of late
the tendency has been to shorten
them until the managers have gone
to the other extreme, only suffi
cient time being given to learn the
names of the candidates. In the
present case the people will have
four weeks to learn something
about the candidates the conven
tion may present before them.
That is hardlv Ions enough in a
big state like this.

We publish an article this week
from the Omaha BepubUcan giving
the political outlook in the State.
The mention of Senator Nesbitt's
name for Judge of the Supreme
Court is something of a surprise to
his friends in this part. We have
no authority to say that Mr. Nes
bitt is a candidate, but we are sure
should it be necessary he could re
ceive the unanimous backing of the
wertern part of the State. He is
a fine constitutional lawyer and
well qualified for the position.

block corners and buildings can be

The New York Independent has
engaged Joaquin Miller to write a
series of articles on irrigation and
water storage, a subject that is oc
cupying the public attention at
present. We publish the first arti
cle this week. This is the most gi
gantic question that has ever ap
peared before the American people,
so far as the possible expenditure of
money is concerned. Billions
may be spent and yet not much
of a showing made. A quarter of
a million dollars have already been
appropriated, which will suffice
for a mere preliminary survey.
The scheme involves the construc
tion of vast reservoirs throughout
all the great Rocky Mouutain re
gion from the plains to the Pacific
coast, from Mexico to British pos
sessions, and the construction of ca
nals on divides and high grounds,
allowing the water to flow down
from time to time over the land
bringing under cultivation the now
The people of Nebraska and Lin
coln county especially are deeply in
terested in this matter. Only a
few years ago the South Platte
was a flowing stream the year
round. For eight months in the
year it is now a dry bed. With an
extensive system of reservoirs and
irrigation along the head water of
the North Platte that beatiful river
would be in the same condition.
However what might be a loss to
us would be a great gain to others.
It is only a question of time when
the water from nearly all the rivers
in the desert regions will be diver
ted to higher grounds, reservoirs
constructed and the water stored up
for use during the dry months.
This will cause a gradual evapora
tion, a larger amount of rain-fall
and snow-fall, and may in time en
tirely change the climatic character
of the country.
Candidates to occupy Congress
man Land's place are quite numer
ous with more to follow before the
campaign opens. The names bo
far mentioned are Secretary of
State G. L. Laws, State Senator
Taggart and Hustings of Crete.
What a pity the State of Beatrice
is not in the second district. Then
there would be candidates galore .
THE JUDICIAL NOAiTNATION.
The Lincoln department of the
Omaha BepubUcan of the 22d con
tains the following in reference to
the judicial nomination.
As the time for the republican
state convention draws near candi
dates for the one important place
to be filled multiply. Thus far no
body has seemed to care to be re
gent of the university, with the pos
sible exception of E. M. Correll, of
Hebron; but, notwithstanding the
fact that it has been repeatedly as
serted that there would and could
be no opposition to Judge Reese
and that his renomination is a fore
gone conclusion, there is no scarci
ty of legal luminaries who propose
to enter contest with the judge for
the place. Reese's friends profess
to believe that his renomination is
assured and that he will be declared
the choice of the convention by ac
clamation on the first ballot. A
conservative opinion on the proba
ble result, arrived at by careful in
quiry, would hardly indicate such
(a condition of affairs. Reese has
the inside track, but if he is re
nominated it will not be without., a
fight. That there will .he opposi
tion is as certain as that there will
be a nomination. What the
strength of the opposition will be
the next month will determine.
There are several prominent law
yers and politicians in the state
who believe they are peculiarly
fitted to adorn the supreme court
bench and who are perfectly will
ing, not to say anxious, to become
judicial ornaments, These men
are going to take a turn in the
race, which is at best but a go-as-you-please
affair, and ther are not
going to go on one foot, either.
In- this category should be iucluded
the name of Judge F. Gr. Hamer, of
Kearney, as it has already; C. I. Dil
worth, of Hastings, who has declin
ed the honor before it was offered
him, but who, it is understood,
would not decline if the nomination
were forced upon him by a plead
ing convention; and E. F. Warren.
These candidates have already been
assigned places in the field, and
now a couple more have suddenly
turned up. Judge W. H. Morris,
of Crete, is one. There is no
show for the Judge, but convinced
as he is that "it is better to have
run and lot thau never to have
run at all." he is prepared to try
for the high judicial honor. Then
there is Senator J. I. Nesbitt, of
North Platte, Lincoln county.
Within the past three weeks Nes
bett has taken a high position in
the front row of those who have
the presumption to aspire to warm
Judge Reese's comfortable seat.
His candidacy, if pushed to a finish
with the same degree of earnest
ness with which it has been com
menced, will probably develop con
siderable interest before the matter
is finally disposed of in Hastings on
October 8th. Commenting on the
Nesbitt phase of the political situa
tion, a prominent politician who
was a leading spirit in the last state
senate and who lives in 100 miles
of Lincoln, said yesterday: "John I.
is and will be a candidate, aud I
wouldn't be surprised to find that
by the time the convention meets he
had gathered considerble strength.
Geographically, he is perhaps the
most fortunately situated candidate
in the field, and location, in case
Reese goes to the wall, will be an
important factor in the fight, if
fight it can be called. Besides this,
Nesbitt. although a young man,
has a large personal following,
which will be utilized to the utmost.
He has strong congressional aspira
tions in common with nearly every
other Nebraska politician, and he
has an sdea that if he makes a good
run and loses, it will have placed
him prominently before the people
and thus helped him on his way to
Washington. But he wants to be
supreme judge,too,and will get there
if he can. Should the contest nar
row down to Reese and Nesbitt
there will in all probability be some
music Reese, you know, has some
pretty well defined prohibition
ideas. On the other hand, the sen
ator from Lincoln county has some
equal positive high license views.
I know that he voted for the sub
mission bill last winter, but every
man who voted for submission is
not in favor of prohibition by any
means. I have personal knowledge
that he is a high license man when
it comes to a question between that
and prohibition. Now the inten
tion is, I believe, to force an issue
before the convention on the liquor
question, and divide the field as in
dicated by the personal preferences

or tne two men. ms win be in
teresting to a degree, and will give
an added zest to the contest. I can
not tell how it will come out, but

An unsophisticated Yankee would
think the county was overflow
ing with money, but if he saw the
treasurers warrant book he would
see that there were thousands of
dollars of registered warrants wait
ing payment. He"would naturally
think our laws very defective which
would permit so great an accumu
lation of money in the treasury
when the county was so much in
debt, but if he turns to the Compiled
Statutes of 1885, chap. 93. sec. 2:
"The treasurer of every county
shall keep a warrant register,! which
register shall shpw the number,
date and amount of each warrant
presented and registered as herein
after provided, the .particular fund
upon which the same is drawn,

thereon, with the'aate when notice

l ' i. j :

Sec. 4. "It shall be the duty of
every such treasurer to put aside in
a separate and sealed package the
monev for the payment of each
registered warrant, in the order of
its registration, as soon as money
sufficient for the payment of such
warrant is received, to the credit of
the particular fund upon which the
same is drawn. buch package
shall be endorsed with the number
and description of such warrant
and the name aud address of the
person in whose name the same is
registered, and the interest upon
such warrant shall thereupon cease,
and such treasurer shall by mail
immediately notify the person in
whose name the.same is registered,
and shall endorse the date of the
mailing of such uotice upon such
Sec. 8. "Every such treasurer
shall daily, as moneys are received,
foot the several" columns of his
cash book "
Sec. 9.. "Any such treasurer
who shall fail regularly to enter
upon his csish book the amount so
received and receipted for, or who
shall fail to keep his cash book
footed from day to day as required
by this act for the space of three
days shall forfeit for each offence
the sum of one hundred dollars, to
be recovered in a civil action on
his official bond, by any person
holding a warrant drawn on such
treasurer, one-half to the person
bringing sucn acpnT. ana one-nan:
to the school fund of the county
in which such action is brought."
j Sec. 11. "Any treasurer who
i shall for a period of five days after
tne moneys in amount sumcient
to pay any registered warrant in its
order have been reqeived fail to mail
notice thereof to the person regis
tering such warrant shall forfeit to
such person ten- per cent on the
amount of such warrant and ten
per cent additional for every thirty
days thereafter during which such
failure shall continue.
He would certainly be non
plussed, for the statement showed
$6,120.01 in the county general
fund, that according to the receipts
of the state treasurer nearly all the
money paid was prior to April 24th
and the treasurer's warrant book
shows the first notice mailed to
holders of warrants was June 29th.
1 would most respectfully ask
our county treasurer to explain to
the public why he keeps such large
balances in the treasury and if he
did not take more commissions for
his collections last year than the
recent decision of the supreme
court grants, and if so why said ex
cess does not appear in his state
ment. James Belton.

it succeeded, where till other remedies
failed. Not a single case wis lost in
