REPUBLICAN STATE CONVEN
TION. The republican electors of the
state of Nebraska are requested to
semi delegates from their several
counties to meet in convention at
the city of Lincoln, August 4, 1802,
at 10 o'clock a. m., for the purpose
of putting in nomination candi
dates for ttie following state offices:
Secretary of state.
Auditor of public accounts.
Superintendent of public instruction.
Commissioner of public lauds

KniTOK Polk of the News was at
Weeping Water yesterday using
his influence (?) to send the Cass
county delegation to Nebraska City
instructed tor Field. He suffered
an ignominious defeat.
The delegates to the state conven
tion are instructed to do all in their
power to secure the nomination of
Lawrson Sheldon for governor.
Mr. Sheldon has been a resident of
Cass county for a number of years,
Mas served his county iu the house
of representatives, is well qualified
for the office and if nominated
would be elected. He is also one of
the foremost farmers in the county
and would beat Van Wyck so bad
he. won. d not he had been running
upon him yesterday and tendered
him their congratulations upon his
nomination to the vice-presidency.
Mr, Stevenson made a speech
thanking them for their call. Mr.
Stevenson has not for years per
mitted a union miner to work on
The insincerity of the democratic
papers in making their howl
against Whitelaw Reid, in their at
tempts to prove that he is not
favorable to union labor, has been
proven on many previous occa
sions. The whole controversy has
only developed the fact that he has
yielded to every just demand made
upon him in the name of labor, and
has indeed assisted the laborers of
the country on many occasions.
Hut now it comes to light, as in
the article quoted above, that Adlai
Stevenson, the associate of the
"stuffed prophet," has neveryielded
a point to labor, that he has never
countenanced a union laborer in
his employ, and that he is opposed
to unions on principle. It's an old
saying that "people who live in
glass houses should not throw
stones," but it is none the less ap
plicable 111 this instance. Democ
racy opened up its old mud can
nons of abuse the moment the nom
ination was made. Without in
vestigating its own weakness, it
began to incense the union laborers
of the country against Mr. Reid.
As usual there was no truth in the
accusation, yet it has brought out
that Stevenson is a rank enemy of
union labor, and that Reid is its
friend. The result has been good
indeed. Democracy has been cen
sured out of its own mouth.
How We Feed Other Nations.
The advance statement issued from
the treasury department of the exports
of domestic bread-stuffs from the United
States for May, 1S'J2, furnishes much in
teresting information. As compared
with May of last j-oar, such exerts have
increased to nu astonishing degree, be
ing valued at $10:,9.-G,91 in May, 1S1H,
and $272,4TG,2:J in 1802.
Taking these two months, we find
that with the exception of barley the
exports of all the bread-stuffs have grown
enormously. For instance, corn, $:J,072,
093, as against $1,431,030; oats, $473,052,
as against $12,232; rye, $443,446, au
against nothing; wheat, $9,042,414, as
against $6,6"7,808, and so on. Not less
interesting is it to notice which are our
leading ports of exjiort for breadstuffs,
Of course New 1 ork takes the lead 111
this, there having been shipped from
here breadstuffs to the value of $S,50S,
810. During the same time there were
exjorted from the following places
breadstuffs valued as follows: Balti
more, $3,103,500; Philadelphia, $2,808,
917; New Orleans, $1,184,610; Boston.
$1,014,631; San Francisco, $823,984; Du
luth, $458,278; Newport News, Va.
$325,271, and Chicago, $244,974.
Those shipments from Newport News
were undoubtedly to the countries south
of us, which, under reciprocity treaties,
are taking more of our breadstuffs than
formerly. But see how Duluth, "the
zenith city of the unsalted seas," looms
up as a place of export for breadstuffs,
beating Chicago in this respect two to
one. New York Mail and Express.

To mos persons the summer season is
a time of excitement instead of quiet
rest, as it should be. With the approach
of warm weather most people begin to
lay plans for vacations and enjoyments,
and in a little while have worked them
selves into a state of excited anticipa
tion. JN ot only this, but they undertake
excursions requiring considerable travel,
either by land or water, so that during
the heated term they have completely
departed from the quiet paths of life
trodden so steadily all the rest of the
Now it is a well known fact that the
majority of people lose weight during
the summer. This loss is generally ac
counted for by the smaller
food consumed diHra warm weather,
hnt -- oii.id &ay that the excitement
incidental to vacations and. traveling
was as much responsible for it as the
other. It is a question if our Indian
summer, the most charming season of
the year, would not make a better vaca
tion period for the majority of people.

200 feet in depth was found. The icy
mass, according to computations made,
