The Falls City Convention One Year Ago,
and How Pollard Was Nominated.
There has been a great deal written
and said regarding the action of the
Fall9 City convention which nom
inated E. M. Pollard one year ago to
succeed Elmer Burkett, who was pro
moted to the senatorshlp. All the
counties combined against Lancaster,
and swore that Lancaster county
should not have the nomination. This
subject has been hashed and rehashed
so much that it should be becoming
quite stale, but the Lincoln News
seems to take a personal Interest In
the matter and tells of that conven
tion as follows:
"Pollard was instrumental in form
ing the combination against Lancaster,
and when he made the agreement with
Judge Holmes that he would not vote
his delegation for any of the live other
candidates but would continue voting
it for himself he frankly said that he
wanted it understood that he had
given his word never to allow them to
vote for Holmes. As Holmes' only
hope for nomination lay In compelling
the convent Ion to choose between him
self and Pollard, he readily entered
that agreement, promising on his part
that he would vote his delegation for
Pollard when that was the last resort
left. Poth Pollard and Holmes kept
"The only combination that was
made at that convention by the out
side counties as the editor of the
News was repeatedly assured by men
who made it, was that none of them
go to Lancaster at any time, but ir it
was found neither could win for him
self then he would go to one of the
other live, but not Holmes. It was
the common talk around the conven
tion that the outside counties, with
the exception of Pollard, had things
rigged up to nominate Hayward. The
stumbling block was their inability to
get Pollard to come into their camp.
All of the first night they labored with
Pollard to induce him to bring his
delegation Int o their conference and
there ballot until one received a ma
jority, when he was to have the sup
port of all the others.
"Mr. Pollard's friends said the next
morning that they never witnessed
such an attempt at browbeating and
bulldozing as was tried upon Pollard.
At the same time, belt remembered,
enough delegates from these six out
side counties had already been pledged
to vote for Hayward, and that the
men who were trying to get Pollard
Into the caucus and who are now
charging him with treachery were not
acting then In good faith, but had
rigged up a scheme to nominate Hay
ward." Now it will be in order 105 some of
the friends of Hayward In Oto2 county
and Neal's friends in Nemaha county
to give their views on this matter fir
the benefit of those who are not posted
on their version of the "inside" of the
whole business. If Pollard was not
fairly nominated at PallsCity it should
be known how he "tricked" the dele
gates into the belief that he was nom

night train carried it south on its mis

eration throughout the entire system
of the Missouri Pacllic, and In the
course of Its journey traverses seven
slates of the union. The agricultural
and horticultural agent, Prof. S. R.
Young, has charge of the car, and in
co-operation with the agricultural and
experimental stations ho seeks to en
courage better results and methods of
agriculture, horticulture and stock
The car was very tastely arranged
with HutTalo grass that was grown on
the plains of eastern Colorado; sugar
cane from the groves of Louisiana
and all other products that are grown
to advantage In the different states of
the union. The car was teeming over

Tare of the Orchard," illustrating the
manner in which the plants, trees ami
shrubs should be sprayed to remove
insects. At the car many forms of
sprays were exhibited, and receipts
fur tho solutions were to be had for
the asking. Prof. Ashburn, of Uibbon,
Neb., spoke in regard to "Seeding and
Care of Alfalfa Meadows," and gave
many practical pointers to his audi
ence. These meetings which were
held in the building formerly occupied

Appendicitis Craze General.
"Not one out of ten who is operated
on forappendicitls is a sufferer from
the disease, "said Dr. Alfred Shlpman,
a leading physician of Oinalia. and his
statement has given rise to consider
able discussion in medical circles,
where it has caused no little sensation.
Dr. Sliipinan has been a licensed
pratitioner in Nebraska for a quarter
of a centiiary. and is much opposed to
the present day tendancy to tho fro
ijuent use of the knife.
"An occasional case of appendicitis"
said the doctor, "requires operation,
but the appendix craze Is In full swing
among the people, as well as among
doctors and many good physicians are
Inclined to regard any pain or ache
situated below the diaphram Is due to
a full-Hedged case of appendicitis, re
quiring immediate operation."
He blames the leading men In the
profession, "who refused to raise their
voices against an abuse which they
know exists and the Insistence of
patients themselves for the frequency
of these uncessary operation."

WHICH WAS STRICTLY AGAINST THE LAW
Failure of the Congressional Committee to
Call Primary Depresses His Friends.
A Lincoln special to the Omaha
World-Herald, under date of last Sat
urday is of the opinion that Congress
man Pollard's enemies may try to un
seat him. According to the sworn
statement of C. D. Clapp of the con
gressional committee, a considerable
sum of money was expended during
the special campaign for cigars. The
distribution of cigars Is forbidden by
the corrupt practice act, and several
lawyers declare that there Is ample
ground for a contest I o disqualify Pol
lard. The special further says:
"There are two items in the report
Hied with tho district court clerk of
Cass county. One Is tlio record of a
payment July Jo to Kia Lmsey or
:!0..1i lor cigars for 'committee.' The
other Is the payment July Jl to J. M.
Teegarden of 11. cj for 'expense dray
age and cigars."
"The corrupt practice act provides
In part that It shall be unlawful to
give away or treat to any drinks, ci
gars or other refreshments or to pay
out, give, contribute or expend, or of
fer or agree to pay, give, contribute or
expend any money or other valuable
thing for the purpose of promoting the
nomination or election of any candi
date for representative or L'nlted
States senator in the congress of the
I'nited States, or for any public oillce
created by the constitution or laws of
tills state to be tilled by popular elec
tion. The penalty Is the Invalidating
of the election of the candidate.
"The failure of the congressional
committee to call either a primary or
convention has caused much depres
sion among Pollard's friends. II Is
enemies declare that It Is a confession
"Pollard thought he could control
the committee, but at t he meeting last
night Reynolds of Johnson county was
absent. Three were opposscd to a pri
mary and hostile to Pollard. Three
were with him. Pollard announced
just before the meeting that he want
ed a primary. He was surprised when
three of the committeemen declared
that the committee would be abso
lutely unfair as to the various candi
dates." But This Is Different.
