It is recommended that no proxies
be admitted to the convention and
that the delegation present be author
ized to cast Ihe entire vote of the dele
gation of the county which they rep
resent. It is requested that the county con
vention select their committeeman
and perfect their county organization
at the first convention counties in
which two conventions are held.

FdYXTEK for governor is a good
joke. A man of real ability can't win
on a platform of dead issues which
have been settled to stay, and a weak
ling like l'oynter has a double handi
cap. Till-: lightest weight attorney gen
eral since Nebraska was admitted to
statehood is C. J. Smyth, the present
incumbent. If the people don't turn
him down at the next election it will

Tho fuiouir-ts of Harlan county hav
nominated a man named Cunnineham
for county attorney. In a speech of ac
ceptance he said, "such men as Thurs
ton, Carlisle and McKiniey, who have
been unfaithful to their tru.-ts, should

General Miles is not finding so many
n mniaruH tpoiiintr ior a ii'mjl as
Shafter found at Santiago, but the
chances are that he wil get a warm
reception before San Juan is taken, as
several inousanu bpanisu rciruiars

fact that the general who retreated
from Pence without a light was s!,ot.
indicates that stubborn resistance will
be made very soon.
James Manahan of Lincoln, and Mat
(ierinr of l'iattsinouth , are two promi
nent democratic candidates, but they
are not well liked in several counties
and it is claimed that Otoe county
democrats bold the key to the situa
tion. Wha'ever the Otoe delegation
says may decide the contest, as a re
suit Jutign J. II. LJroady of Lincoln,
may receive the nomination. Friends
of Judi;e Broadv are havintr some
trouble to convince democrats that
they ought to have another trial for
cono-ress, but when they point to tlie
official abstract of tho vote it is hard
'o deny their claim that . lodge liroady
is a good vote getter. St a. to Journal.
The populist Poynter will turn out
a setter when it comes to making a
1-nce with Judge ITayward, who will be
nominated for governor free from any
dictation of political bosses because
the people want him.
Evidence is accumulating every day
as to the smailness of the inju
ries inliicted by our various bom
bardments. This has been the liiot
good opportunity to match the new
high-power guns against land fortifi
cations and the forts seem to have
gained in pretige. When the matter
is once settled it will be a great saving
to be able to dispense with Useless
Bombardments. Still it is excellent
target practice and it enables a pack
of crack marksmen to display their
skill in a way which must produc?
some moral impression. Sprintield
