An Important Case.
The case of M. O'Donohoe vs. ?I.
D. Polk, et al., tried in the district
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.

Tho State Convention Had No
Use For Matrin or Bryan.,
as. I. Hubble, Tobo Castor, Milton
Doolltt'e, W. H Thompson and 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
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
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
?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:

A motion was made that Hryan be

ot discussing the resolution, declar
ing that it was cowardly to dodge

Then excitement reached its cli

Men shook their lists toward the
