Minneapolis, Min 11., J inn 7. Per
liapM it wan fitting that the patriot
ic airs "Columbia," -My Country
Tis of Thee" and -The Star Span
gled Banner" should prelude the
national convention. Scarcely had
Ahe last echo if the.se inspiring
anelodies died away when Chair
man Clarkson rapped the republi
can convention to order.
Win. Kii.m1i, chancellor of the uni
versity of Lincoln offered a prayer.
Hon. M. II. I)e Young, of Califor
nia, one of the secretariey of the
national committee, read the offi
cial call for the convention.
Fassett Unanimously Chosen.
Chairman Clarksou then an
nounced the selection of Hon. J. S.
Fassett of New York for temporary
chairman. There was a moment'
huh, everybody awaiting' possible
action by the Harrison element in
opposition to Fassett's selection,
but the anticipated contest did not
take place. Xo one was placed in
nomination in opposition to him,
anil lie was declared unanimously
When Clarksou presented him
the fol'owers of Blaine broke forth
in prolonged, rousing cheers.
Fassett, in his spceh accepting
the position, thanked the conven
tion for the honor conferred, and
asked the generous forbearance
ami co-operation of the convention
lie said that it was eminently fit
ting that the republican conven
tion should be held in a temple
erected for the display of the pro
ducts of the protection to American
industries, Great applause.
McKinley Permanent Chairman.
Minneapolis, Minn., June . At
11:2.1 this morning the convention
was called to order by Temporary
Chairman J. Sloat Fassett and at
12:2a the chairman of the commit
tee on peimatieiit organization an
nounced the name of Hon. William
-McKinley, governor of Ohio, as per
manetit chairman. Major McKin
ley was escorted to the chair amid
and shaded by native e
boulders. In a short time the
sound of the bark whistle was
heard in the woods and the merry
laughter of the children engaged in
playing and swinging. While the
ladies busied themselves in spread
ing a bountiful repast under a
large elm tree and the gentlemen
and some of the young ladies took
part in an exciting irame of base
ball, Captain Petersen and myself
went to the boat to repair the mast-
pole, which was done in a few
minutes. At about 5 i. in. we em
barked for home and arrived at the
place of starting at 7 o'clock
On the return, in rounding Dutch
Point, my attention was drawn to
the fact that it would be very easy
for the railroad company or the
government to change the current
of the Missouri river by cutting
ditch of about fortv rods' lenirth
across Dutch Point at the mouth of
the Tarkeo and letting the Missouri
strike the Platte at the head of the
second slough coming down the
Platte, which would soon cut its
own channel through, making the
river straight from Piattsmouth to
Dutch Point, thus getting away
with that east bend of the Missouri
and the unlimited expense of rip

A Trip Up the River.
Summit Garden, Plattsmouth
June b, 1MJ2. Editor IlEKALD: I
thought that perhaps I could fur

iiisu a iew items oi interest to your
readers in regard to a picnic excur
sion up the river from this place
Sunday last on the sail-boat "Fred
Thomas," which is forty-one feet in
length and of about eighteen tons
capacity. The weather was pleas
ant, accompanied by a good south
wind. The company numbered
thirty-one, consisting of eighteen
children, of ages ranging from one
year to thirteen years, and thirteen
grown people, all equipped with
baskets well filled with provisions
of all kinds, and plenty of ice and
icecream freezers.. They all assem
bled on the bank at 10 a. in., and in
side of ten minutes we were sailing
up the river at the rate of ten miles
an Hour, under the command of
Capt. C. II. Petersen, who showed
good skill in navigation. We had
9-ine trouble at the mouth of the
Platte in finding the righ channel.
md it would have been better if we
had kept to the Missouri, although
we got through all right as it was
At about 11::) we reached Dutch
Point, above the mouth of the
Platte. The natives there number
ing about twenty-five assembled
n the bank to see what was
pouting, which made a miniature
picture of the landing of Columbus
t San Salvador. Salutes were ex
hanged by the waving of white
andkerchiefs. We halted, but.
taring a hostile demonstration, did
ot land. At that time the wind
ras blowing furiously and we were
loving along at tne rate of forty
liles an hour. In getting above
arkeo fiend we met with our first
,iipwreck, by the breaking of our
;ist-ple, thus letting our sail
j op down. Then we floated back
out two miles to Dutch Point,

The usual May day demonstra
tions in France passed off without a
ripple to disturb the peace and
serenity of the country. For
months past the press on both
sides of tne Atlantic have teemed
with highly sensational (imagin
ary) accounts of the terrible things
that would happen on that eventful
day. However, the day has come
ami gone, and, notwithstanding the
predictions and dire forebodings of
the fake press, has now passed into
history, with nothing to mark its
advent except the ringing speech of
Julius Pepperberg on Main street
of Plattsmouth on the night of the
7th of June, denouncing union men
in general; and under the same
union he has prospered ever since
lie returned from Omaha the last
time. Now he wants to trample on
the very men that made for him
that which his foreman, C. J. Main,
is so willing to sacrifice for the
Plattsmouth Cigar manufactory
We hope that J. Pepperberg may
take a tumble to himself and for
ever wipe the snake out of exist
ence. He never did anj-thiiig for
himself, and much less will he do
for Mr. Pepperberg, for he is a liar,
and Union 2(37 stands ready to
prove it any time he maj' see fit to
call on them.
Unio'i 27ii wants nothing but that
which rightl3' belongs to them
and Mr. PeppeVberg is well aware of
that fact and that they must have,
otherwise he cannot expect the
union label. There is not money
enough to purchase that little
strip of blue paper, which is be
coming the pet of all labor unions
in the country.
Lookout for the blue label!
J. M. Raudexbush,
Yesterday's Ball Games.
Beatrice scored her ninth consec
utive victory yesterday by winning
from Grand Island in a hot game.
For three innings Summers for the
visitors, was batted terrifically, three
base hits and a home run being
made oit of him in the third and
fourth innings, netting the locals
five earned runs. Derrick was weak,
but was well supported, retiring in
the seventh in favor of Holmes. A
big crowd was in attendance and
the game was fully as satisfactory
as the one the day before. Kennedy
made several phenomenal stons
and Holmes made his first fielding
error of the season by muffing a fly
after a hard run from outer left field.

Hastings participated in an ex
citing up-hill game yesterday after
noon. Kearney played a game full
of ginger from start to finish. The
visitors had the game won in the
seventh, but the locals put on their
batting clothes in the ninth and
hammered out the game. Castone

during the cannonading by Hast
ings, but could not save the game"
The decisions of the umpire were

grand stand. The features of the
game were the hitting of Chiles,

nine difficult chances without an
error. The pitching of Lippert was
excellent. The score:
