RUSE WAT EK FOR COMMITTEEMAN.
Nebraska's Republican State Con-
Iventlon Noisy. But Very Har-monlous.--A
egation Elected. -Other
At 1 1:4.1 ..yesterday morning I)r
fiercer, chairmaii i( the state cen
tral committee called , the conven
tion to order. He said: Here, mid
way between oceans, is the focal
spot around which revolve our bus
iness and political affairs. Here is
the hub of the universe. What was
once the center of our great desert
is now the oaeis of the nation. Here
in the oasis is the beautiful, thriv
ingcity of Kearney, peerless among1
competitors, misliiuir ever to the
front, and successful in every und
ertaking. It is fitting that we
should meet here and compose a
plattform broad enough for all hu
inanity. We meet to select the men
who shall help name our nation s
next president. From that nomina
tion until next November he shall
be our king and after that he shall
wear the nation's crown."
As stated in yesterday's HERALD
Brad Slaughter was made tempor
ary chairman and F, 13. Simmons
temporary secretary. On motion
the .temporary organization was
Jlgutter ol (Jmalia then threw a
bomb shell into the convention. He
read a lengthy resolution which
asked that Hon. K. Bosewater be
made a national committeeman. A
Cass county man seconded the re
solution on behalf of the delegation
Three or four gentleman jumped to
their feet. Then half a dozen more
asked recognition, and there was an
exciting time far a few minutes.
Paul Schniinke, by sheer force of
voice and insistence, trot the flor
andwished on behalf of Otoe county
to second the motion. He said: "I
have been in this convention light
ing prohibition and fighting every
thing. But we have to quit this
lighting among ourselves and be
harmonious. If Kosewater is given
the state it is all right."
A Lancaster delegate moved as an
amendment that the rssolution be
relerreu to a committee. Ihe mo
tion was lost by a vote of 403 to 183.
John Peters offered a resolution
favoring the renomination of Presi
dent Harrison and dieecting all
candidates nominated to declare
their attitude towards him. There
was no opposition to the resolution.
On motion the convention pro
ceeded to the election of delegates
to the national convention. A man
by the name ef Orcutt placed the
name of John L. Webster before the
convention. Mr. Webster was called
for and responded as follows:
"As I was walking on the street
someone said I was wanted in the
convention, f did not know what
was wanted, but I came. In twenty
years I have known but one party,
the republican. For four years a
republican executive and his able
advisers have given us prosperity.
The party endorse the administra
tion, and feel it should be kept in
"When the delegates return from
Minneapolis with the same stand
ard bearer, -ict0r3' will be ours.
With the same administration as
now, prosperity will be ours."
Hon. L. D. Richards was next
placed in nomination by Ross Ham
mond of Fremont. Nr. Richards
addressed the convention as follows
"It would seem that the extent of
the duties of the delegates to Min
neapolis would be to formulate a
platform for the party, and then to
attend a grand ratification meeting
that should commend the adminis
tration of Benjamin Harrison and
demand that he should again be
put in power. Other great men
there are in the party whom their
friends would be glad to see made
president. Chief among these is
Blaine, but he lias so clearly ex
pressed his declination of the nomi
nation or that it is useless to talk of
hini.Theadniiiii.-tration of Harrison
has accomplished more for the ma
terial prosperity of our country than
any other in our history. The par
ty will place the seal of its approval
on it by nominating Harrison and
Morton, and the peopb will put the
S-'al of their approval on it by elect
ing thorn again. Gentleman. if
elected di-legate. I will vote for Har
rison." J. L. Keck of Buffalo county.
Judge Cobb of Lancaster county.
Col. E. D. Webster of Hitchcock
county, and W. H. Xeedham of Knox
county were placed in nomination,
and each one was called upon for a
short speech. They all responded
in a hearty and vigorous manner.
The convention then took a short
rest while, come music was fur
nished, after hich J. G. Tate was
called upon for a speech. Among
other things Mr. Tate said he had
been shown a cap with visor and
band of Black Hills tin that it was
proposed to adopt for a Minneapolis
convention cap. It was brought
out, and he put it on. "Behold our
tin," he said. "Protection should
be our watchword. We have a
gold, a silver and a tin plank in our
platform, and they are strong
enough not to break. I am glad to
hear the endorsement of Harrison.
Next November we shall have the
greatest love feastever known, with
Harrison in the centre and Blaine
Mr. Tate's speech provoked great
The roll call on delegates was
asked for. Mr. Needham's name
was then withdrawn, and he asked
to be made an alternate. The roll
call was without particular incident
am finnl result was evident. At
its close an old man created a great
uproar by asking that Kosewater be
made to mount the platform and

It was moved that Streeter, Keck
and .Need ham be made alternates
by acclamation. Jessie Gandy very
adroitly amended by adding the
name of G. K. Tarbox of Galloway
and he went through with the rest,
Several resolutions were intro

the encouragement of the beet su
gar industry which was unanimous

"Wanted, the Earth."
The Perkins Grand was crowded
from gallery to pit last night with
an. audience that was entertained in
a most delightful manner by John
Dillon and a fine support, in his
new play, "Wanted, the iiarth."
The comedy, besides abounding in
laughable situations, is peculiarly
adapted to the talents of Mr. Dillon,
who kept the audience in a good
humor throughout the evening.
The story of the comedy is tlaat of
a New Jersey farmer, Jay D. Smith,
who kept summer boarders, and
through contact witlfthem became
ambitious to go to theV;ity, which
he did, after selling his farm, and
soon grew rich by means of specula
tion, changing his name to Jason
De Smythe. Mr. Dillon played the
part of Smith, the shrewd, plain
spoken farmer, as only he can.
The play contains abundant love
intrigues, detective adventures, etc.,
with all modern improvements, in
cluding a telephone. Springfield

When Old Sol showed his face ou
irom oemnu the mass or gray
clouds that had obscured his vision
for the past year or so yesterday
morning he was glad. Yesterday
he was to meet his ancient and
antique friend, Norman Baker,
Well, knowing that the joy of the
meeting would end Norman's career
on earth, he made the acquaintance
of John I. Unruh, and, securing a
liberal discount off Boeck's figures
tie oraereu nine nice, new, spring
coffins. And then he pushed away
the cloud bank that threatened him
with destruction and warmed up to
his work. His old friend Norman
got into town about 10 o'clock, and
along in the afternoon when Old
Sol was at his best he collected his
mob of freaks and wended his way
to the ball ground. That was
where his old friend Sol was to
queer him. Sol was on drinking
terms with the local team. lie said
they "couldn't lose," "had a pie,'
ef.c, and he was right. lie simply
horsed the ead relic of departed
days all over the lot.
There were not many people out
to see that ball game yesterday. A
small crowd witnessed a very in
sipid game. Kennedy was the
only man that played his game.
and Kennedy was strictly in it. He
batted and fielded like a fiend and
showed that his sobriquet of
"Snapper" was well earned.
Reeves pitched excellent ball the
fore part of the game, but, owing to
lack of practice, let down and al
lowed the freaks to score five runs
Yapp took his place and was not
Robertson pitched for Fremont,
and, had he been properly sup
ported, would have made the game
very interesting. He is evidently a
coming pitcher, being but seven
teen years old.
Our old friend Norman decorated
his side of the error column with
several large, luscious errors and
in the seventh or eighth inning in
jected a large dose of face into the
game and engaged in a pleasant
wrangle with Mr. Long as to who
had the best right to live on the
earth, greatly to the edification of
the multitude and his own discomfiture.
Manager Thomas M. Patterson
appeared in the game for a few min
utes in the seventh inning, when he
dusted off the plate, and immedi
ately thereafter Fremont made live
