The republican state convention
meets in Kearney to-day for the pur
nose of electing (our delegates at
large to the national convention.
The following in taken from the
There are more politicians in
Kearney to-night than ever before,
and she has Beldom entertained ho
large a crowd. Arrangements by
the local committee as perfected
provided for a crwod of not over
1,200.' One thousand are accommo
dated by private families and soci
eties, which have furnished a block
with cots. Business houses are
gaily decorated and every attention
is shown. The Midway hotel is
headquarters, with the rotunda
crowded, and the discussions are
earnest but exceedingly good
humored, indicative of an harmoni
ous convention. Tom Major and
Joseph Hartley are circulating
among their friends, while G. V. K.
Dorsey is working hard in some
one's interest. The congressional
candidates present are Dorrington,
Whitehead and Stone from the
Sixth nud McPheely from the Fifth.
The evening trains brought in
most of the eastern delegates, who
were met by bands. Richards came
in this evening. The sentiment is
that he will undoubtedly be elected.
John L. Webster and Judge Cobb
are likely to be elected without uu
ticulty. The fourth place is one of
possibilities, Colonel IS. 1. Webster
of Hitchcock, J. L. Keek of HutTalo,
Judge Church of Lincoln, W. II.

Heist of Cheyenne, IS. L. Dorrington
of Dawson being mentioned, with

The Midway hotel rotunda was n
confused mass of delegates all the
evening and many rooms upstairs
were occupied for consultation
There was u good deal of talking
but so far as surface indications
counted the situation was little
changed. There are a few on the
Omaha delegation that are trying
to raise a kick on Webster, but the
majority of 1 lie delegation say no
serious trouble is feared. Roaewat
er engaged a room here two or three
days ago but cancelled the order
to niirht. Several of his followers
are here but are getting little sym
pathy. The IS veiling Hub published this
evening an editorial telegraphed by
Rosewater, headed. "Can Webster
be Trusted," which will be printed in
to-morrow's Hee. It was prefaced
by the following telegram:
Omaha, Neb., April 2ft. Will you
publish an editorial that will ap
pear tonight, "Can Webster be
Trusted." Answer quick and will
wire it prepaid.
Sijiiied. Omaha Bei;.
Editor Brown said the editorial
was published mostly to give Rose
water a fair show and he closed by
saying that so far as the Hub is
concerned it has none of the fears
that the Hee expresses. It is willing
to trust Webster, Rosewater or any
other republican at the national
convention. This expression is
about the feeling of delegates to the
convention as expressed in conver
sation at 11 o'clock to-iiight. Some
were willing to say that Webster
would be elected.
The endorsement of Keck by the
Sixth district convention to-night
may play Some part in deciding the
Interest in the Rosewater light is
added by the fact that his name has
been mentioned for the national
committeemanship, The sugges
tion does not strike the delegates
generally as favorable.
The state central committee held
a lengthy session to night and de
cided on a temporary organization

PADDOCK'S GOOD WORK.
Nebraska's Militia ExpensePort
Sidney Not to be Vacated.
The following specials to the Lin
coln Journal make u a pretty good
record for one day:
While Senator Manderaon was in
the chair Friday morning Senator
Paddock called up the bill which
directs the secretary of the treasury
to audit and pay the actual and
necessary expenses incurred by and
for the national guard of the state
of Nebraska, called into the service
of the state by Governor Thayer last
year during the Sioux outbreak, on
presentation by the governor or
other proper authorities of the state
of statements of the actual and
necessary expenses incurred by the
state, accompanied, as far as pos
sible, with the proper vouchers and
satisfactory proofs. The sum of $42,
00 is appropriated. It is provided
that the pay and allowances to the
Nebraska National Guard shall not
exceed the pay a:d allowances of
the army of the United States. The
bill was passed without any extra-
ordinarj amount of trouble on the
part of either of the senators "from
Upon the personal solicitations of
Senator Paddock, based on letters
of N. M. Neevea and others of Chey
enne county, the secretary of war
with the concurrence of Major Gen
eral Schofield, rescinded the order
for the removal of the garrison at
Fort Sidney. He declined to in
crease the force there at the present
time, but intimates that there is a
possibility that later on additional
troops may be ordered to the post.
Senator Paddock also succeeded
in securing the passage of a bill for
the relief of Esther J. Booth. This
caHe is a very ineritorius one as
shown by Dr. II. B. Lowery, presi
dent of the board of examining
surgeons at Lincoln, Neb. A pen
sion of $12 per month was granted
her for the valuable rervices which
she rendered the government dur
ing the war as a nurse.

the charge of bigamy, had his pre
liminary examination yesterday

Wife No. 1, of this city, was present
and swore that they were married

The citizens are hopefully ex
pecting a plentiful supply of pure
water in the near future. The plan
is to pump the water from a spring
into a reservoir, which will be built
on the high ground north of town.
The work is well under way. The
windmill which is to furnish the
power is up and the reservoir at the
spring is completed.
Already Nehawka has one
suburb known as East Nehawka or
"The Ouarries." When we get
another one we will want street rail
roads. Indeed, something of the
kind is in demand now to bring the
farmers in and waft them home
again, some of whom seem to have
business or make an excuse to come
to town every day, and it takes time
and a team to come. Hut with
lines of telephone and rapid
transit radiating out, farmers
might dwell in town and on the
