honest purpose of "dividing the

Clark, it must lie admitted, was
looked on by the Nebraska demo
crats as the most progressive and
thoroughly representative demo
cratic candidate of Ihe three. He
was looked on, furthermore, as
the candidate who, if nominated,
would most strengthen the demo
cratic party in the state in the ap
proaching general election. He

record of faithful performance
made by Ihe democratic bouse of

without entangling alliances of
any kind, the same as Wilson, and
Harmon were. All three were
earnestly supported, all three
were good men, and the man who
was naturally strongest with Ne
braska democrats won in the fight
for the delegates at large. He is
entitled to their loval, zealous and
persistent support at Baltimore
and without doubt he will have it.
In every congressional district
that was carried by Clark the dis
trict delegates should take up the
light for him, and the friends of
Harmon and Wilson alike should
heartily acquiesce in the verdict.
There is no good reason why any
of them should fail to be good

Clark is a mighty good democrat.
An Exellent Company.
There was an overflow house
at the Overland last evening to
enjoy the pleasing presentation of
"Thorns and Orange Blossoms,"
by the Charles Breckenridge Stock
company. The company is com
posed of some clever artists and
they pleasingly presented this
popular play. This evening they
present the five-act comedy, "For
Humanity's Sake." The specialties
between acts by Harry Smith,
Charles Breckenridge and Miss
Eva Lappin, were indeed pleasing.
The company is here all week and
will be greeted by crowded houses.
