FUSION TICKET 19 NAMED.
Berge is Nominated for Governor and
Townsend for Second Place.
Lincoln, Aug. 11. An agreement
looking to fusion on the state ticket
I was enected early this morning by
Nebraska Democrats and Populists In
their state cou ventlons alter ininy
hours of conferences between com
mittees representing the two pintles
and, at times, acrimonious debatut In
Bepaiate conventions. A strong Pop
ulist minority opposed fusion on any
basis except Democratic endorsement
of the Watson and TlliMcs electors,
but this wns met with an emphatic re
fusal from the Democrats and a counter-proposal
for an equitable division
uf tho state olllcers and this wus final
ly accepted. Thu Populists thereupon
nominated George W. Merge of Lin
coln for governor, and the Democrats
endorsed the nomination.
The Populists, In turn, nominated
the following: Stato auditor, J. S.
Canady of Mlnden; treasurer, J. M.
Osborne of Pawnee City; land com
missioner, A. A. Worslcy of Ilutte;
school superintendent, Alfred Softley
This left the Democrats the threo
remaining officers: Lieutenant govern
or, secretary of state and attorney
general. Edgar Howard of Colum
bus was nominated for lieutenant
governor by acclamation, but de
clined, and Dr. A. Townsend of Frank
lin was named. It. E. Watzka of Rich
ardson was nominated for secretary of
state and Edward Whalen of Holt for
Electors-at-large. John A. Lynch of
Boyd county and II. O. Adams of Hall;
First district, R. II. Franz of Cass;
Second district, Joseph A. O'Connor
of Douglas; Third district, Thomas
Ashford of Dakota; Fourth district. S.
M. Dalley of Jefferson; Fifth district,
Patrick Walsh of Red Willow; Sixth
district, J. N. Tuffts of Rod Willow.
The platform contains a hearty en
dorsement of the national ticket It
says. In part:
"We, the Democrats of Nebraska, In
state convention assembled, hereby
reaffirm the principles of Democracy
as asserted and defended by Jefferson,
Jackson and Dryan, and approve the
platform adopted by the Democratlo
national convention at St. Ixmls. We
pledge our support to Alton n. Parker
and Henry O. DavU, the nominee of
"We point with pride to the splen
did record made by our distinguished
fellow citizen, and take this opportu
nity of again expressing our profound
appreciation of his steadfast devotion
to Democratic principles."
The feature of the Populist conven
tion was the address of Tom Watson,
the nominee for president.
Mr. Watson scored both the old
parties and ridiculed the Republican
national convention as a cut and dried
affair. Of the Democratic convention,
he tald: "It made Its appeal to the
deity through a megaphone, and
drafted Its platform by telegram."
His speech, which occupied nearly
two and a half hours, was an Indirect
nppi al against fusion, and he was fre
The Populist platform reiterates tho
national platform adopted at Spring
field and pledges support to the na
tional candidates. Most of the planks
refer to state Issues.

Toklo, Aug. 15. -Flags are flying,

guiued at sea by Admiral Togo and
Vice Admiral Kamlinura. I'udiMiieath

feellig of deep satisfaction und gratl
ratlon at the dtapoiial of a desperately
serious problem of tho war.
The Kusslau squadron which con
fronted Admiral Tvgo refused buttle.
11 was stronger than Admiral Togo's
squadron In hattlcuhlpn and armored
cruisers and had It elected to fight tho
result might have altered the fortunes
of war. The strength of the squadron
which opposed Admiral Togo com
pelled him to draw vessels from the
squadron under Vice Admiral Kami
mura, and this left tbo Japanese navy
powerless to operate against the Rus
sian Vladivostok squadron and unabln
to prevent the raids of these vessels.
The raid conducted by tho Vladivo
stok squadron In July was extremely
expensive to Japan, and not only was
retaliation tempting, but It was do-
manded by commercial Interests.
The navy, however, grimly refused
to make a diversion and stuck to Portj
Arthur. It was confident that tho
harbor soon would be untenable for
the Russian warships, that it would
eventually get a fair fight In the open
sea. away from the Russian bind bat
terles, and that the Japanese would
win. Tho calculations of the navy
were correct, and tho Russians, with
the chances even, havo been hope
lessly defeated. ...... jf ., , i ,

months of weary and patient wnltlng,
finally got his chance at dawn yester

Japanese guns dom.nate the dor-k

this fact It would seem to be Impossi

The best possible naval force tltnt
Russia can now concentrate at Vlad

of the Port Arthur squadron hns been
sighted in tho strait of Vandlemen,
steering for Vladivostok.
A dispatch from Che Foo snys tho
Russian ships at Port Arthur made a
sortie Tuesday. The Russians, it is
reported, did not encounter the Japan
ese fleet. Nevertheless, they returned
to Port Arthur.
A creditable report slates that the
Russian protected cruiser Palladawas
sunk by a torpedo during the engage
ment on the night of Aug. 10.
Czarevitch Made Plucky Fight.
Che Foo, Aug. 15. Details of tho

Czarevitch was surrounded by four
