William Vincent Allen was born
at Midway, Madison county, O., on
the IJSth day of January, 1817. This
fact accounts in an indirect way
for his success in the great battle,
now a thing of the past as it is gen
erally accepted theory that a man
who takes the trouble to go to Ohio
to be born is pretty sure to be giv
ing something in the gift of the
In 1833 he moved to Iowa where he
enlisted, at the age of fifteen years,
with company G.Thirty-eecondlowa
regiment. He served his country
three years in Itis capacity and
then commenced the study of law
at West Union, la. He has lived in
Nebraska nine years. He is now a
district judge in the Ninth judicial
district. He was senior vice com
mander of the Grand Army of Ne
braska during the year lSXSand
consequently near to the hearts of
the brave boys.
Mr. Allen's conversion to the
populists ranks is of recent date.
He was a delegate to the republi
can state convention that nomina
ted L. I). Richards for governor.
It will be remembered that Allen
played a prominent part in the con
vention. When another ballot was
iuinienent Judge Allen's tall form
was visible on the floor, accompa
nied by the following remarks:
"Mr. Chairman, on behalf of Mr.
Richards I desire to say that he is
willing that another ballot be taken
though he has clearly been nomi
nated already; however he does not
want to tak? any under advantage
or to have it said that the nomina
tion did not come to him fairly and
honestly, I therefore move that
this convention proceed to take an
other ballot for governor." The mo
tion wn carried and on the fourth
ballot Richard got all but thirteen
of the in ;n '.Ml votes of the con
vention. Judge Allen is an attorney of well
Known ability in Nebraska was one
of the attorneys in the Koyd-Pow-crs
contest cae and it is Mid th.it
he drank the drink that made him
a populist while thus engaged. In
appearance the judge isa t'iant. lle
is large, well proport iouod and
has a full, round smooth-shaved
face that be. tins with intellig
ence. In conversation ho is pleas
ant and talkative, but generally
very conservstive in what he says.
The independents ratified last
night. In other words they bor
rowed the earth for the time being
and practiced the sound system
through their hats. Representa
tive hall was a structure that con
tained a happy mass and Mayor
Weir presided. The fact that the
new party had elected the first sen
ator that ever went from Nebraska,
that was not a republican inflated
them so th.it it was impossible to
keep their gaseous verbosity pent
up. The meeting was open to
members of all parties and attract
ed many of the downcast aid de
feated to the state house.
Judge Allen was the heroof the
evening and addressed his admir
ers. Seveial other prominent men
made short addresses.
The Following Bills Have Been
The house went into committee
ot the whole last Thursday, for the
consideration of bills on general
file with Barry in the chair.
House Roll No. 12, by Higgins
was the first to come up. This bill
provides that when twenty or more
persons resident in any county of
thi state shall organize themselves
into u society for the improvement
of agriculture within said county,
and when the said society shall
have raised and paid into the treas
ury any sum of money, in each
year not less than $50,00 and when
ever the Jpresident of such society
shall certify to the county clerk the
amount tlius paid, the county botrd
may, u they deem it advisable,
order a warrant drawn on the gene
ral fund of said county in favor of
the president of said society for a
sum equal to three cents upon each
inhabitant of said county upon a
basis of the last vote for members
of congress, allowing five inhabi
tants for each vote thus cast, and it
shall be the duty of the county
board to include this three cents
per capita in their annual estimate,
and it shall be the duty of the
treasurer of the county to pay the
same out of the general fund, pro
vided that if any existing county
agricultural society fails or has
failed for two years or more to hold
an annual fair at least three days
such society shall not be entitled
to any funds from the county; pro
vided that where more than one so
ciety lias complied with all the pro
visions of this section each society
shall be entitled to a proportionate
share ot the county funds.
The bill was recommended to
House Roll, No. 71. by Stiter, pro
vides "that all railroads touching
the same point in the state, at which
point such railroads receive and de
liver freight shall build and main
tain transfer switches for common
use in transferring freight from
one road to another, and receive
and forward all such freight ac
cording to the provisions of this
act." Also providing a penalty of
$100 for each day the company shall
neglect or refuse to maintain such
nouse jvoii .o. t ny ?cneip.
"That where children of school agv
are living over one and one-half
miles from the school house where
they belong und they shall be a
half a mile or more nearer to another
school they shall be granted the
privilege of attending said near
school, and the said district shall
for their compensation collect from
the saul home district the state
apportionment of said pupil, and
shall be collectable as soon as the
county superintendent shall make
public the said apportionment."
The bill was recommended to pass

A GOOD APPOINTMENT.

I. AM AH 81HTKSSOK.
Washington, Feb. 2. --The presi
dent today appointed Circuit Judge
Howell Edmunds Jackson to suc
ceed Justice Lamar on the supreme
bench. Judge Jackson is a demo
cratic ex-senator hih! is at present
judge of the United States court at
the district' embracing Tennessee.
Inquiry about the capital shows
the appointment, considered from
a judicial and non-political view, is
a splendid one. The appointment
was a great surprise to the Tennes
see delegation in the house. The
two republican members felt sore
over the selection of a democrat and
state's right men, but, when asked
as to the judge's personal fitness,
conceded that his character and
abilities were all that could be de
sired. The selection politically is
no more pleasing to some of the
democratic representatives, who
recall the fact that Judge Jackson
who was a leader of the "up school
democrats of Tennerssee." These
men said, however, that the new
judge is strong, clean and able.

Cameron Found In an
Was Probable Frozen to Death.

ran, the missing merchant, has
been found. Just before noon to
day Mrs. Gray, living on South Lin
coln avenue, had occasion to pass
near the peach orchard back of the
house in which she lived, and with
in one hundred yards of the house
she was horrified at finding the
prostrate form of a man laying
alongside of i the orchard
The body was immediately
recognized as that of Cameron, and
taken to the rooms in Cameron
block, in charge of the coroner. As
the body was viewed in the room to
which he was taken it was noticed
that his ears and whiskers were
filled with snow and ice. The legs
were somewhat draweit up, which
indicates that he had laid out in
the cold and storm since his disap
pearance last Monday night. The
body was lying upon its back, with
the left hand laid upon the breast,
and in general appearance was that
of a man fallen into slumber. The
body bore no marks of violence
and the face showed no signs of
pain or distress, but was composed
is though in natural sleep.
The jury, after examining the wit
nesses, ;ir. and iMrs. . i uray,
rendered a verdict to the effect that
Charles Cameron came to bis death
from exposure and freezing be
tween the night of January 30 and
the morning of the 31st.
