Polk, et al., tried in the district D.l leot fl)l urt yesterday furnishes a remark- auie instance oi mispiaceu eonn- ) deuce and wholesale robbery of a father by a trusted son. The case occupied a great portion of the day and consisted mainly in the evidence of ?Ir. John F.Polk 1 relative to his dealiugs with his son Milton D., editor of the Evening News, showing that he had let Mil ton D. have $1 8,040. It appears that ?1. 0'Donhoe brings the case to set i aside certain deed executed by I Mi'ton D. Polk to Jiis father, John r anu oy jonn r. to one i,eusou, a rother-in-law in Indiana. The Itction is in the nature of a creditor's ill O'Donohoe having a judgment against M. D. Polk for some ?."0(), and claiming thut the transfers of J'certain real estate from son to lath. law, was made for the purpose of preventing the creditors of ?I. D. Polk from realizing on their claims against the aid ?I. D. Polk. The evidence of John F. Polk was re markable i:i that it went Ui show that he had trusted his son with various sums of money since the year lt, always to realize that he had been victimized and deceived; that money he had intrusted him with had been misapplied and lost; that ho bad paid notes which had appeared against him that he had j never executed and that every trust I reposed in his soti had been abused and betrayed, so that finally he had taken a conveyance of the property in controversy which was heavily incumbered, as the only resort he had to recover any of his lost funds and it is this property the creditors now seek to uncover and appropri ate to their own use. As a sensational and remarkable suit the records of our Cass county court fails to show its equal. The universal expression of spectators and lawyers was that ot sympathy for the old father and condemnation for the unworthy son. Cold Found In Livingston Heights. For the past week a number of miners have been around town. They have kept very quiet; nothing could be gotten out of them, but a rumor was put alloat the other day that they were prospecting for coal in Livingston Heights, but as signs of digging for coal could not be seen anywhere and the miners kept so close-mouthed, it raised a suspicion in the minds of some of our visionary citizens, who got up early this morning and watched the supposed coal diggers. They were seen making their way up the rail road track till they came to Living ingston Heights, where they began to examine the numerous springs along the foot of the bluffs. The citizens came up and asked what they had found and were told "Gold." The miners said that there was gold in the hills and that the water washed it out at the springs and that 500 miners from California would be here soon to dig into the hills, beginning at one of the springs, and that they expected to find gold in large quantities. This was given to a reporter of The IlKflALD iis a fact, but it is a fake. So pay your money and take your choice. Base Eall Notes.

A replevin suit is being tried be fore Judge Archer to-day. ?1. W. Avery gave two chattel mortgages on some property, one to A. C. Loder and the other to S.C.Polk. It is claimed by plaintiff that Avery, through his attorney, tendered Loder's agent the amount of the mortgage, but for some reason did not pay the money to the agent. S. C.

The Bond-holders Hav Taken Charge of the Plattsmouth Water Works. The hoiid-holdors of the Platts motit Water company have taken possession of the plant in this city.

Hubble, Tobo Castor, Milton Doolltt'e, W. H Thompson and J.is. E. Eoyd Elected as The committee on credentials were engaged all Wednesday night to figure out who was entitled to a seat in the convention, and finally seated the Hoyd delegates and fired the Martin delegates. The convention waited impatient ly until 11:110 o'clock, couriers being sent at frequent intervals to hurry up the committee which was still wrestling with the Douglas county contest. Just as the clock reached the half hour the committee ap peared and was greeted with pro longed applause Chairman li eland of the commiltc appeared and apol ogized for the delay, which he said was made necessary by the impor tance of the matter discussed, which could not be disposed of without the most careful deliberation. A resolution was introduced before he proceeded with the report allow ing each side thirty minutes for the discussion of the Douglas county contest and ordering the previous question on the matter im mediately thereafter. The conven tion was tired of delay andaccepted the resolution with a rather weak, but unanimous voice. The report was then read in full. It recom mended seating the Hoyd delega tions from Cheyenne and Cuming counties and seating both contest ants from llickcock county. The committee found that the Oil ut or Hoyd delegation from Douglas county was the only regular one in the convention, and unanimously recommended that it be seated. The report was hissed heartily. Mattes of Otoe moved that the report concerning Douglas county be adopted. Mr. Gannon moved an amendment that it not be con curred in, and that the contesting df legation headed by T. J. Mahoney be seated. That was, the ques im for debate, Mr. ?lahoney leading with a speech of twenty minutes and el sing in ten after Mr. OlTut had been given thirty minutes in which to present his fcidY of the case. After both sides had related their troubles to the convention a vote was taken on ?Ir. Gannon's amend ment, all delegations voting except Douglas. Lancaster cast nineteen votes, and seventeen of these were against the amendment. The re suit was that the Hoyd faction car ried it by a vote of 8Jo ayes to 31'J'a noes. The report of the committee was adopted as a whole, and at last, al most eighteen hours after the con vention was called to order, an or ganization was reached by making the temporary organization per manent. ?lr. Watkins introduced a resolu tion indorsing Cleveland and in structing the delegation to vote for him in the national convention The last clause brought out such a chorus of protests that Mr. Watkins was glad to Hgree to strike it out The indorsement was accepted with a whoop. The silver question was then brotitrht up, It was then moved that a committee be appointed on resolutions, and an amendment of- fered that Bryan be made chairman but the smendmeut received no second. After the aupointment of the committee the convention ad jotirned until 2:30. The afternoon session was called to order at 3 o'clock. The selection of the congressional convention of delegates to the national convention was endorsed. A motion was then carried that the convention proceed to the election of four delegates at large to the national convention. The following nominations were made: James D. Hubble of Jeifer son, Tobe Castor of Saline, ?Iitton Doc. little of Holt, William II Thompson ol Hall, James h. Hoyd of Douglas. After the nomination and before the election of alternates, on motion of Hryan the committee on rssolti tions was called upon to report. The resolutions were read by the chairman of the committee, A. J. Sawyer, as follows: THK PCATFlMVM.

A motion was made that Hryan be given thirty minutes to speak on the subject, and hia opponents a like time. The war then opened in earn est. Hryan made a speech in favor ot discussing the resolution, declar ing that it was cowardly to dodge the question. Thompson of Hall moved :i" a substitute that ltrfan resolution be adopted and the vote be taken by a call of counties. Hryan then undertook to Induce Thompson to withnnv his motion, but without avail, and made a short speech in which he talked about "Ka law," an expression which was repeated with vigor in several por tions of the big room. A vote was taken on Hrj au'. res olution, whit h resulted -74 ayv and 247 noes. EQUAL. C CURES KCURALCtA, kni'WtlinflUANDTUlTllfl. th I'liln r.rt.
