years before congress and was ve
toed by President Huehauan in

cherished by our people. Taking

possible for the passage of an act
admitting Nebraska from ten to fif-
' teen years sooner than othetw'se.
"Asa token of our appreciation
j and on behalf of young and old re
publicans of Nebraska, I desire to
present the temporary chairman of
tuis convention with this gavel. It
t plain and simple, but useful. Its
historical interest and icpublican
origin symbolizes the two acts. The

grown upon the first or original
homestead, located near Beatrice,
Gage couniy, Neb., which was en
tered January 1, 1M(S3, by Daniel Free
nian,who sidl owns and occupies
his claim. The ends of the gavel
are inlaid with silver coins, one
bearing the date of n7, and the
other 1S02, signifying- that this year
Nebraska celebrates her twenty-
fifth or silver anniversary. It was
' our hope that Hon. Gahtsha A
Grow of Pennsylvania, a delegate to
this convention and the father of
homestead law, would be here and
make a few appropriate remarks,
but I am sorry to inform you that
lie is sick and confined to his bed.
With the hopeihat when Nebsaska

governed by republicans, I have the
honor, sir, to present yo a 'Jos gave!."
The Chairman Are you ready
for the question? There being no
objection the committee is extended
permission to sit until they have
completed their report. The next
order of business is the report of

Chairman Lockwood, who sub
mitted the following report: "Mr.

Cheers Greeted MeKinley.
The announcement of General
Mahone's name was greeted by en
thusiastic approval from the gal
leries and a number of delegates.
Governor McKinley was in the
seat with the Ohio delegation and
there was a slight hush as the com
mittee approached him and former
ly notified him of his election. With
a bow the governor of the liuckeye
state arose and arm and arm with
the chairman of the notification
couim'ltee, marched up to the plat
form. No occasion could have been
more fitting to demonstrate Un
popularity of the great American
protectionist and his admirers were
not slow to catch the inspiration of
the occasion. It was nearly a min
ute before the deafening cheers
ceased reverberating through the
halls and corriders, and when si
lence was finally restored Chair
man McKinley was introduced by
his predecessor, Temporary Chair
man Fassett, who thanked the con
vention for its courtesy to him and
presented McKinley of Ohio. Ap
plause for the retiring and incom
ing' chairmen resounded through
Hefore McKinley could say more
than "gentleman of the convention"
some one called, "three cheers for
McKinley," and the building fairly
shook with therespose.
When quiet was restored McKin
ley proceededjto deliver a brilliant
telliitg speech, punctuated by en
thusiastic applause as point after
point was made.
McKinley's Crand Effort.
Among other things he siio.:
"Republican conventions mean
something. They have always
meant something. Republican con
veniens say what they mean and
mei'ii what they say. They declare
principles ami policies and pur
poses, and when entrusted with
power, they execute and enforce
them." He said the platform of the
lirst republican convention in I'hil
adclplra thirty-six years ago reads
to-diy more like an inspiration
than tlie aTirmntioii of a great
polit'Cid party; that every provision
of that great instrument was on the
pitbbc statutes of our country to
day, which cannot be said of the
platform of any oilier political or
ganization of this or any other
country. Whenever anyth'i:g was
to be done in this country, by this
country and for th:s country, the
republican party has been called
upon to do it.
"We are here to-day to make a
platform uiut ticket that will com
mend themselves to the conscience
intelligence and judgment of the
American people, and will do it.
Whatever is done by this conven
tion, either as to platform or ticket
will receive the approval of Un
American people in November.
"This is a republican year. Rhode

publicans to congress. When we

Following is the vote:
Mli;.i'oi.is, Ml.W., June '.- The
convention got down to business
last night and Chairman Cogges
well of the committee on credentials
took the platlorm, and stated that
he was not prepared with a written
majority report, but if the conven
tion wished he would make a verbal
report, lie understood that the mi
nority was ready to report.
Mr. W allace of New York said he
had a partial report from the minor
ity which he sent to the clerk's
Mr. Lockwood of Idaho asked
some questions which brought an
explanation from the chairman.
When his curiosity was satisfied
the chairman asked if there wasauy
objection to the reception of a cr-
lial report Irom the committee. No
objection washeard and Mr.Cogges
well, holding' in his hand the mem-
orandain sheet, began to announce
the action of the commiltee. Mr
Coggeswell dictated to the conveir
tion and the reporters. His report
was as follows:
The committee on credeiitinlscon-
sidered the list of contested dele
gales and has heard in twenty-four
different costested cases. It recom
mends that the uncontested list
submittted by the national com
mittee of the temporary organiza
tion be accepted as the list of duly
credited delegates and alternates

In the matter of contests in the
Kighth, Third and Fourth districts

l;ng members retain their seats.
Li the Sixth the contestants, Hous
ton and Mathews, were recom
mended to be seated. The sitting
delegatesat-large from Louisiana

seats. In the contest from Missis
sippi both sets of delegates wi re
allowed seats, casting half votes
The chairman asked the rcpre-sentati-'e
of the minority, Mr. W al
lace, if he desired to make a verbal
The report of tin- minority was
the same as the majority w ith the
exceptions, of 'he Alabama dispute.
M-. Coggeswell moved that the
majority report beadopted. Clieun-c.-y
I. Fuller on behalf of the repub
licans of Alabama, asked that the
minority report be adopted. The
chair announced that he would
recognize gentlemen from each
side idlernately and gave the floor

with great enthusiasm and adopted.
At 1:30 last night the convention

At 11.35 yesterday morning Chair
man McKinley called the conven

delegate. "Not in it," a voice re

At the close of liuslis' speech the
chief Maine demonstration of the
day look place. It seemed to have
no limit. The crowd veiled waved
umbrellas, threw hats, and danced
and cheered, and when it seemed
that human power must soon over
come itself the old cry of lilaine,
James, G. Maine, spread through
The manifestation was the most
sensational. The prolonged en
durance of intensity probably
equalled anything ever n-en ill the
convention. At twenty-three min
utes the band began playing, but
the roar came again and the stamp
McKinley began rapping with his
gavel and finally the storm spent
itself at the end of thirty-iiue min
utes. W. K. Malleson, colored, from Mis.
sissippi, seconded the noni inat ion.
He was the greatest citizen in the
world, a man so great that no one
was jealous of him. He was t!w

living republican, James G. Maine.

Minneapolis when In- lirst received
the nomination. The president
was surrounded by Secretaries
Tracy, Noble and Rusk and by Mrs.

It was a memorable scene, and
only one face was missing to c -
plete the picture, that id Mrs. Har
rison, who lay upon a sick bed less
than 1 M feet away, anxious, no
doubt, but as yet unconscious that
the extra anxiety of the last few
days had been dissipated ami that
her husband, Henjamin Harrison,
had been selected to lead the re
publican party in the coming cam
paign for the presidency.

Prohibition prohibited, even in
New York. On Sunday, April 4.
saloons and gambling houses were
tightly shut; let us hope that other
haunts of sin were also barred and
bolted. The I ike was never seen in
Gotham. What was tlu- reason?
One Christian minister had
preached against the abomination
of his own city and hail kept on
preaching; had arraigned the
sworn officers of the law us vulgar
roughs leagued with the immoral
and criminal classes. He had been
cited to appear before the grand
jury, had made his words good by
sure testimony; the jury had ar
raigned the police; the police did
not dare longer to let the law re
main like a rusty sword in a still
more rusty scabbard. So they set
at work to do, under the lash of
public criticism, what they ought
always to haw done. Who will
roll away the stone lor us in other
cities? Where is the Dr. Parkhurst
of Chicago and St. Louis, Haltimore
and Hoston? Heaven grant that he
may soon appear with thunder
bolts. It is in direct violation of Missou
ri's statute law to employ women to
sell liquor, unless the woman is the
wife, daughter, mother or sister of
such saloon keeper. The grand
jury at St. Louis, in response to a
resolution presented by the St.
Louis W. C. T. lT. arrested and in
dicted the offenders. At the hear
ing, representatives of the liquor
dealers association eulogized the
I, Hit) saloon keepers, who must be
respectable, they said, or they could
not procure licenses, and who paid
if'.KHI.iHK) a year taxes. One of these
adtlressed the ladies of the W. C. T.
lT. particularly, claiming that the
objects of his association were, by
every means, "to promote temper
ance and the good order of society."
The Norwegian plan of running
saloons (if saloons must be run!)
commends itself in practice and re
sults. A monopoly is given to a
society of shareholders, who must
pay into 1,ie city treasury all profits
over 5 pt cut. This surplus is
applied to deserving charities and
benevolent institutions. Women
are not peri litted to be employed,
nor youths under sixteen. Attend
ants arc clad in uniform, each man
with a number on his collar like a
policeman. The bars are plainly
litted up, clean and respectable.
There are no seats, private coin
partments or attractions of any sort
for loitering . on the premises.
These saloons cannot be opened be
fore H o'clock in the morning, nor
kept open after 10 in the evening.
It is a conclusive fact, founded up
on experience, that the traffic in al
coholic beverages has been greatly
reduced and drunkenness curtailed,
since the introduction of this sys
tem in Norway.
