AN OUTLET SOUTH.
The Convention at Denver in the
Interest of the Gulf
The Object of the Meeting and
What It is Proposed
Denver, Aug. 29. The deep water
convention has been in session three days,
and aside from the agitation of the ques
tion of a harbor for ocean steamships on
the gulf, nothing will be accomplished.
The convention very wisely has taken
occasion to say to the large delegations
present from Corpus Christi, Galyeston
and Arkansas Puss, "you must keep the
whole subject o'f location in the yeas, to
be settled by competent government en
gincers." The attendance from all of the
western states shows a growing interest
in the subject. Perhaps less than one
hundred Nebraska people have ever giv
en the subject any consideration.
THE HEAL QUESTION.
The state of Texas is fast awakening
from her slumber and begins to realize
that her commercial prosperity can be as
sured if she can bring ocean ships to her
shores and load them with western grain
and beef, which supplies are now shipped
by rail to New York. It is claimed that
the western farmer will effect a great sav
ing in cost of transportation by opening
up the gulf route. If such is the case,
and it looks reasonable, Republican
will heartily favor the project. It will
always be my pleasure to advocate any
movement which is calculated to aid that
large agricultural class with whom I haye
always been identified, and the one in
whose prosperity evey business man is
interested. I have no desire to go into
statistics at this time. Governor Thayer
has given the matter considerable study,
and he clearly demonstrated in his open
ing speech th'u afternoon that a deep
water harbor on the Texas shore would
enable the western farmer to get better
prices for his products.
WHAT MUST BE DONE.
The subject must be agitated until the
congressional delegations in the west and
souin win unite anu pass an appropria
tion for the necessary harbor facilities,
which are required for the largest ocean
steamships. Of course the movement will
be opposed by eastern railways, which
arc interested in the big haul, but that
opposition can be overcome. For the
purpose of agitation the Denver conven

tion will result in much good. It is pro
posed to hold a convention in Topeka
ivausas, 10 ue ionoweu uy a rousing one
in Omaha, where steps will be taken to
place the keystone in the deep water and
to be enacted by the west and south
When the time comes, Omaha must put
on her best clothes and give the business
men of the Lone Stare a royal welcome.
THE NEBRASKA DELEGATION.
Some forty-eight Nebraska people are
here from Nebraska, and the list is about
as follows: The Hon. John M. Thayer,
Max Meyer, William N. Nason, John F,
Boyd, G. M. Nattinger, Colnoel C. S,
Chase, Hermann Kountze, L. J. Thornton,
Alfred Frost, W. J. Baker, John M. Mon
roe, G. R. Doane, D. V. Barkalow, S. P,
Rounds, Moses Barkalow, William Fiem-
ming, E. M. Andreeson, A. D. Yocum,
Cadet Taylor, A. L. Green, Joel Hull, C.
E. Adams, John Jensen, N. Roberts, M.
W. Butler, Peter Crockrell, J. B. Evion,
M. M. Neeves, F. O. Bell, J. M. Lee, O
E. Goodell, M. I. Aitkin, M. L. Murphy,
J. M. McMurtrie, Ira Brashears, W. G.
Connor, J. II. Yon Steer, L. Crounse,
Warren Cole. E. L. Fine, R. Hollings-
worth, Harry Davis, Henry C. Smith,
Irving J. Mavatt, F. Corinth, D. A.
The delegation unanimously selected
Col. Chase for temporary chairman, but
Colorado captured the position before
the Nebraska people could present their
candidate. Besides Col. Chase declined
to allow the use of his name if it would
antagonize the candidacy of Gov. Thayer
for permanent chairman.
This deep water convention will adopt
some resolutions, appoint an executive
committee to consider the subject during
the recess, and adjourn. Some members
are of the opinion that but one more
meeting will be necessary, but the major
ity incline to the belief that neither Kan
sas nor Nebraska are as yet thoroughly
informed as to the importance of the

The Great Cass County Fair.
The agricultural society of Cass county
has placed everything in first-class
shape for the coming fair, to be held on
Sep. 18 to 21 and have finally crowned
their efforts, by succeeding in inducing
the merchants of Plattsmouth to take
stock and go in with the society and
erect a new floral hall. The hall is oc
tagon in shape, CO feet in diameter, with
a handsome observatory on top, surmount
ed with a flag of our country. The floor
will contain 2d booths, which are taken
by the following named citizens. Each
has the exclusive use of the same for 5
years and the right to sell their merchan
dise on the grounds, in fact it is to bean
exposition building emporium, and for
the benefit of all the citizens. The w ork
of building the same is in charge of W.
H. Pickens, an efficient builder, and no
doubt will reflect credit on his ability in
that li ne. The subscribers to the new
buildiug are J. P. Young, O. P. Smith
& Co., E. G. Dovey & Son, Fred Herr
mann, F. 31. Richey, I. Pearlman, P.

There will be the best exhibit ever
made in Cass county and the novelty of
this building will reflect credit on the
movers in the matter, and be an induce
ment to many to attend the fair. Alrea
dy there are many horses being trained
every day on the track, and the speed
ring promises to be the best ever held in
Cass county. Let our citizens all take
hold and do all in their power to make
it the best fair ever held in Cass county.
The County Seat Question.
The removal of the county seat is be-
ng agitated very seriously, and already
the movers in the matter, a few tiicksters
in and about the village of Weeping
Water, have succeeded in inter.-sting a
number of farmers in the matter; and
we understand that petitions are beino-
circulated in every road precinct in Cass
county, outside of Plattsmouth precinct,
for signatures, the same to be presented
to the county commissioners for the pur
pose of calling another election.
Do our farmers understand that this
will involve the expense to the county of
$S00 and result in no good to anyone?
It means that a few men about the above
named village are simply using this

fore the public, and when these means
fail, their stock in trade is gone. It will
result in no change for the simple reason
that Plattsmouth alone, polls over one
fourth the entire vote of the county, and
in addition to that, can expect large help
from Rock Bluffs, Louisville, Platts
