The application to remove Keceiver

Kunsey this afternoon. The court
held that receivers must conduct af
fairs of tru.-t in such a manner that
suspicion will not attach thereto. He
had known Donelan since he was a
small bey and regarded him as a young
man of integrity and .good business
qualifications and regretted to make
the order for his removal, but he had
allowed suspicion to attach to some of
his actions, and he felt sure the best

tells of an important campaigning tour

CZAR ;UIM AT THE HELM.
Tli. Ilnfiwiiinitii fit f'AMM County In Mann
Colonel Peter E. HufTner, the invin
cible son or grandson of Thomas Jef
ferson who so recently led the demo
crats of this city to victory, was in the
saddle yesterday in the interests of
democratic harmony and sound money,
and, as usual, was a winner.
A call had been duly issued for the
faithful of Cass county to father in
mass convention, who were in line
with Cleveland on the money ques
tion, in oider that 11 delegates might
be sent to the sound money demo
cratic state convention, which meets
in Omaha April iM.
It was nearly 3 o'clock yesterday af
ternoon when less than fifty adminis
tration democrats scattered themselves
on the i ear seats at White's opora
house, leaving a sea of empty cha'rs
in front of them, while a still larger
number of free silver democrats sat
just behind them. There was trouble
in the air you could feel it and from
the whisoered consultations and
anxious faces, you could see it as well,
and why not, i'or the national conven
tion might turn on the complexion of
one vote, and the faithful of old Cass
were determined to do their who.o
duty, even if a few silverites had to be
slugged and thrown out of tiie window.
u Col. KutTner pushed the button and
started the menagerie by stepping up
on the stage, and, as member of the
Euclid Martin stale central committee,
called the convention to order and
read the call for a convention, also the
declaration of principles, which ef
fectually shut, off the free silver men
from taking any part in the proceed
ings, unless they cared to do so as out
and out followers of the Cleveland
hard money theory.
Mr. HutTner then placed Major D. S.
Guild in nomination as chairman. The
motion was duiy seconded," but Colonel
KutTner noting that the silver wing
bad a candidate also, and seeing that
the Bryan brand of democracy was in
the majority, he negloctea to take a
vole out just declared Mr. Guild the
chairman of the convention. This was
slightly informal and was a gross in
fraction of Koberts rules of order and
Jefferson's manuel, but if Iloberts or
Jefferson had been there and seen
what was in front of them they would
have done just as Colonel liutTner did.
Tho republicans applauded ltutTner's
coupo with loud laughter, while tho
silverites roared with disappointment.
Major Guild amidst great applause
from the gold bugs and republicans
stepped up onto the stage and at once
took the reins in hand with a deter
mination to run the machine or bust a
cog. The next thing was the selec
tion of a secretary and June Black was
named by the gold bugs while tho
back seats nominated Bart Kirkham
of the Journal. A vote was taken and
Major Guild lost his bearings so far
that he listened to the overwhelming
vote for the silverite and declared him
to be elected, admidst deafening ap
plause from tho white wings. The
new secretary was loaded with
a silver resolution which it
was iutended should bo adopted.
There were loud calls for resolutions,
and as the secretary started to read
his silver doctrine tho chairman
reached over and grabbed them out of
his hand with the remark that "You
can't road anything Lere, except by
order of tho chair" and as ho pocketed
tho document the audience yelled at
the ridiculous proceedings, while Guy
Livingston and two or three other sil
verites got up to remonstrate against
such an outrage. Someone raised a
point of order but Guild overruled,
saying, "Let them talk, that's what
we are here for." Col. KutTner then
moved that a committee composed of
three be named to select delegates
to the state convention. The motion
was put, and although the noes clear
ly outnumbered tho ayes Czar Guild
was onto his job and promptly declared
tho motion carried. The following
delegates so the Lincoln convention of
April were selected: S. Waugh,
W. D. Jones, A. W. White. George D.
Amick, J. A. Pollard, Walter Pailinjr,
U. S. Guild, P. E. UulTner, J. N. Black,
Peter Vallery and John ghaw.
Major Guild recognizing the fact
that the work to bo done had been ac
complished, announced that a motion
to adjourn would bo in order. Such a
motion was made and a vote taken
which overwhelmingly defeated an ad
journment, but the chair blandly de
clared the motion carried and an
nounced the democratic mass conven
tion adjourned. The republicans
crowded around the chairman at once
and warmly congratulated him on his
out doing Czar Heed and in tho
masterly manner in which ho handled
Tho convention by this time was get
ting pretty noisy; the back seats were
disgusted and "catcalls" and yells of
Czar Heed were heard in loud tones
while general laughter prevailed in
tho front part of the audience.
The Itesolut ioim.
Tho resolutions which the chairman
pocketed for safe keeping until after
tno convention adjourned, read as fol
Wiiekeas. The democrats of Cass county, in
mass convention assembled, believing in true
Jettersonian democracy and the principles of
