Blaine's Opinion of Htnry G. Davis.
James C. Maine, In bis "Twenty
Years of Congress," has this to say of
the democratic nominee for the vice
presidency, Judge Parker's running
"Henry (1. Havls, a native of Mary
ind, entered as the tirst democratic
senator from West Virginia. His per
sonal popularity was a large factor In
the contest against the repuhllcans of
his state, and be was instantly regard
ed by his party as Its most Iniluentlal
leader. Mr. Havls had honorably
wrought his own way to high station
and had been all his life In active af
fairs as afarmer.a railroad tnan.a lum
berman, an operator in coal and a
Imnker. lie had been uniformly suc
cessful, lie came id me senate im
the kind of practical knowledge which
schooled him to care and usefulness ns
a legislator. He steadily grew in the
esteem and coulidence of both sides of
the senate, and when bis party obtain
ed the majority he was entrusted with
the responsibility of the chairmanship
of the committee on appropriations.
No more painstaking or t rustworthy
man ever held the place. While 11 nn
ly adhering to his party he was at all
t hues courteous, anil to the business of
the senate or In loci I Intercourse never
obtruded partisan views."
This Is the opinion of James
lllalne, the iitiiiuestioueu leader of his
party for many years, a man whose
brilliant leadership makes many of the
republican leaders of today look like
Wherein He Lies.

the cause of tho deed. Sho -vas thirty

Plutto county; secretary of state.
Stanley Larson o Saline; state treas

S. T. Pavles of Otoe; attorney gen
eral, Martin I. Hrower of Nance
county; land commissioner, Andrew J.
Thompson of Johnson; school super
intendent, F. H. Carson of Dodge,
The resolutions reiterate the platform
of tho national Prohibition convention
nnd pledge support to Swallow nnd
Carroll, Woman suffrage Is demanded
and the nrlnelnles of the Initiative
and referendum endorsed.
It seems to worry the Omaha lice
because Parker has resigned the chief
Justiceship of New York. Well, If
Wind-jammer P.urkett had as much
conlldenceiu his election to the I'liitcd
.States senate as Judge Parker has in
Ids elect ion to the presidency, he ought
to resign as congressman, too. Hut

arc the leading Issues, and feel that it

Tiik Journal called attention last
week to the fact that the Plattsmouth
Republican King- has Its ticket all cut
dried and ready to siring for the rank
and ll le of the party In this county to
swallow in November. In the mean
time the republican hoard of commls
kIoiicis are busy enforcing the republl
can (scallawag) scavenger law, enacted
liy the late republican legislature
law which it wasclaiined and is claim
cdbythe republican members of the
legislature from Cass county was pass
oil for Pouglasaloue- against the pot
people of the county. Walk up to the
clerk's olllee, gentlemen, and look at
the operation ol republican legislation
llcan. Here you have lie number one
Democrats and republicans alike sliar-
d in tlie discussion of matlcis that
were brought he fore that meeting.
l'lie scavanger law was among the sub
eetsof discussion, and a committee
Appointed to confer with the com in Is
sloners. That committee never held
;i meeting afterwards. JohnM. Leyda
was made chairman of thiscominlttee,
ind not secretary of the meeting. So
here Is lie number two. When the
lournal presented lis Dill two years
iigo this fall for publishing the tax list
t he board of commissioners was com
posed of Falter, .ink and J odd one
democrat and two republicans. Ther
you are with lie number three.
It would seem from these facts that
the late editor of the Republican has
been "talking through his hat" In
stead of his trumpet, and with no re
gard for truth whatever.

Tho passenger train rushed around

DIVIDED ON FUSION.
Governor LaKollette Explains.
Lincoln, Aug. 10. Governor LrFol
lette of Wisconsin, who came to Lin
coln to deliver an address before the
Nebraska Kpworth League assembly,
corrected an impression circulated
during the day that he had slighted
Governor Mickey by refusing to meet
him. Governor IyoFollette arrived In
tho city tired and almost ill. He went
to his room nnd to bed, leaving orders
with the hotel clerk that he would re
ceive no callers until evening. Ac
cordingly, when Governor Mickey and
a reception committee called they
were notified that tho Wisconsin
executive refused to seo them. After
Mr. ljiFollette'8 address, tho two
governors met, and explanations satis
factory to both were exchanged.

Ills successor may beelectcd at the No
vember election. Wind-jammer Hur
kett has been nominated for United
.States senator by bis party in the state
and also renominated for congress.
The mystery w hy he does not resign
;is congressman in time to have bis suc
cessor elected at tlie November elec
tion, has not yet been solved. If lie Is
elected to the senate, perhaps he de
sires to put the taxpayers of the First
district to the expense of holding a
special election, and maybe he Is Just
bull-headed enough to think that he
can hold onto both places. That's the

Llneolu, Aug. 10. Nebraska Demo
crats aro hi tho city In numbers for
tho state convention for tho nomina
tion of a stato ticket, which will bo
called to order at 2 o'clock this after
noon. Thero Is no very veil dellued
idea as to tho composition of tho
ticket, and unless tho unexpected
happens, it will be a long convention,
with many conferences with the Pop
ulists, who also meet at tho tarao
hour, looking to possible fusion.
Should fusion bo agreed upon am!
Democratic party leaders are working
earnestly to bring It about It Is gen
crally agreed that the Populists are
to have the head of tho ticket. That
removes any strifo among the Demo
crats for tho nomination, but If fusion
should fall, tho cholco Is thought to
Ho between W. H. Thompson of Grand
Ulaud and former Congressman Shel
ienbarger of Alma. It Is already
agreed tho Democratic national plat
form will be endorsed. W. J. Hryan
is a delegate to the convention end
Fusion with the Democrats Is tho
dominant question before the Populist
delegates who are here for the stato
convention, which will be hold at tho
same hour, but In a different hall
from that of tho Democrats. Thus far
all overtures for fusion have ccme
from the Democrats, with the Popu
lists badly d:vMed rn the wisdom of
IU adoption. Prospective candidates
for office cr the state tidu". r.a'urally
lean tu f'i-!or., while It l. noteworthy
that natlcr.a'i ladirs In the party, a
number of whom live in Nebrnka,
have advised against it, Charles Q
DeKrar.ee of Lincoln, secretary cf the
Poi'u'.ift r.a'.lcr.al ccmmltteo sal I the
or.'.y basis r,f fusion would be support
by Democrats cf Watson and Tibbies
electors, and an equal division cf tho
sta'e cSlres In this declaration. Mr.
pcFranie is upheld by Thomas H.
Tibbies, vlco presidential nominee,
and It la mpposod Thomas F. Watson,
presidential candidate, who Is here,
entertains tho same views. On the
other side, George W. Perge. candi

tion, Is out and out for fusion on tha

Question, and lie has a following. It la
asserted, that will carry the day.
Dennlson Alleges Error.
Lincoln, Aug. 4. W. J. Connell, nt
torney for Tom Dennlson, filed In the
supremo court a petition in error,
complaining of tho decision of the
Douglas county district court In the
extradition proceedings. Fifty-four
points aro raised, principally relatlvo
to the Introduction of evidence show-
Ine tho alleged connection between
Sherman W. Morris and Dennlson
Objection Is also made to the ruling;
of tho court that the extradition pro
ceedings were founded on sufficient
evidence before Governor Mickey,
It Is alleged that the Indictment on
which Governor Mickey Issued the
executive warrant was not the same
ns that found by the Knrrlsca county
grand Jury, tho allegnticu to robbery
having been stricken out.
