most of the eastern delegates, who
were met by bands. Richards came
in this evening. The sentiment is
that he will undoubtedly be elected

confused mass of delegates all the
evening and many rooms upstairs
were occupied for consultation
There was a 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 the delegation say no
serious trouble is feared. Rosewat
er engaged a room here two or three
days ago but cancelled the order
to-night. Several of his followers
are here but are getting little sympathy.
The Evening Hub published tins'
evening an editorial telegraphed by
Rosewater, headed. "Can Webster
be Trusted," which will be printed in
to-morrow's Bee. It was prefaced
by the following telegram:
Omaha, Neb., April 26. Will von
publish an editorial that will an-

wire it prepaid.
Signed. Omaha Bee.
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 Bee ex presses. It is willing
to trust Webster, Rosewater or any
other republican at the national
rnnrontmn Ti. . . . .

The meeting of the citizens of the
state held at Lincoln Mondayjnight,
seem to be taking a lively i
terest in the celebration. It will be
the greatest historical celebration
Nebraska has ever seen. About
forty towns in all parts of the state
were represented, and that, too, by
men whose names alone are suf
ficient pledge for the successful
completion of anything they under
take. The Lindell hotel was thrown
open to the committee and guests,
and the reputation of Lincoln for
hospitality was not allowed to suffer.
The address of welcome by Mayor
Weir was responded to by Secretary
Nason of the Omaha board of trade.
Afterwards C. A. Atkinson of the
Lincoln board oi trade gave in de
tail the program for the celebra
tion as it has been discussed. Of
course in many of the minor partic
ulars it has not been settled. In the
main it will follow the lines which

souvenir of the anniversary celebra
tion, to be placed in the state house
as a lasting memorial.

The following specials to the Lin
coln Journal make up a pretty good
record for one day:
While Senator Manderson 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,
OOt is appropriated. It is provided
that the pay and allowances to the
Nebraska National Guard shall not
exceed the pay ad allowances of
the artny of the United States. The
bill was passed without any extra
ordinary 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. Neeves 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. lie 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
case is a very meritorius one as
shown by Dr. H. 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.
