The I'opuliat National Convention QurfW
the Silver Oeniocmts
The gold bug democrats and republi
cans arc laughing over the result of
the populist convention. First ail
rules wore ignored, and before the
Bryan men could get their breath the
vice-president was nominated first,
and his name wasn't Sowall, either.
The Bryan ites were panic-stricken
and W. J. telcgraphod at once that
his name should not be used for the
This all occurred last night and to
day Mr. Bryan was nominated ay the
convention just the same. It looks
like the wily politician from Lincoln
had been razzie-dazzled or out classed
somewhere in the move, and tho next
turn of the kaleidoscope will bo
watched with special interwl.
A VICIOUS KUNA WAY.
A Team on Sixth Street Takes a Lively
Chase With Only .Slight JMuiaRe.
Alex Burtwell was loading a wood-:

wagon near Sage Sc Shuinaker's livery j
barn without unhitching the team
The horses seem toh'ave been vicious

wagon being no serious pediment to
their speed. They went north on
Sixth street at a killing pace up to
iTricke's residence, when they ran into
a shade tree, fell down and were cap
tured. The nec.kyoke and a bolt or

the horses, which looked as though
they would bo killed, did nut have a
Charley Twiss' horse and buggy
were standing at Streight & Saltier'.
The quiet animal, at peace with the
world, had its head down as if asleep
and before it could pick up its ears
the wagon of the runaway team struck
the buggy and quicker than you could
snap a finger the horse was lying in
the street with its heels in the air,
a buggy wheel torn to splinters and
the team which did the damage nearly
half a blok away. Several narrow
escapes were made before the tree was
struck which ended the race. Two
wagons wero slightly touched. An

Thurston May Follow llryun.
The interesting information comes
from Chicago that the republican
managers are considering the ad
visability of following Bryan on the
stump in Maine and other parts of
New England if the latter carries out
his plain to go down there to speak.
It is probable that the senator will
follow Bryan in New York also. It is
said that tho republican managers
consider it a wiso plan to dotail Sena
tor Thurston to look after Bryan dur
ing the entire campaign and give him
nothing else to do.
It is generallj' conced that Thurston
made the best speech at the St. Louis
contention and Bryan the best speech
at the Chicago convention, but they
are very different in their style of
oratory. Bryan is compared to light
cavalry; Thurston to heavy artiilory.
Thur6ton is said to be the only debator
that Bryan is afraid of, for the senator
learned some of Bryan's weak points
in their joint debates and knows where
and how to strike him so it hurts.

ST. Louis, July 24. (To the editor
of the Clobe-Democrat) I notice ia
this morning's paper a virulent at
tack on ino by the Nebraska delega
tion signed by W. L. Greeno, chair
man, and Warwick Saunders, secre
tary. I do not believe it was author
ized by the decent olemont on that
delegation. W. L Greene is an otlice
holder, and hopes to be nominated for
congress and get tho democratic en
dorsement. Warwick Saunders is
one of Governor Ilolcomb's oil in
spectors. Half of the delegation are
Governor Ilolcomb's appointeos, who
hojw to perpetuate their jobs.
Governor Ho'comb has made a di
rect deal with Mr. Bryan to nominate
him at St. Louis, and thereby get
Bryan's support for governor this fall.
It is a direct and shameless sell-out of
the populist party of Nebraska. Sena
tor Allen has also entered into e. deal
to be re-elected to tho United States
senate, as a result of this trade. Over
half of these men are office-holders,
and as such under our rules are not
eligible to scats in our convention.
They aio here wearing democratic
badges, and their loaders are daily
conferring with the chairman of the
democratic national committee. They
have shamelessly sold out the populist
party in our state for gain. They came
hero on railroad passes and packed
the convention by the most shameless
and corrupt old party methods. Gov

llo is a good man in bad company. He
can not get an honest electorial vote
without the aid of the infamous and
criminal ballot-box stuffers of the
south, who should be hung to the
