GYPSIES IN TOWN
From Wedneeaay's Dally.
A band of gypsies visited the city
this morning and were encamped for
a few hours on South Fourth street

kids as is usual with traveling out

previous visit to this locality.

TION AT LINCOLN
No Prohibition Endorsement, But
Straddle on Railroad Control
for Primary Change.
Lincoln, Neb., July 25. The Rose
water allies, aided and abetted by the
torrid weather and the inability of
Chairman E. R. Gurney to find the
end of his speech, wore all the fight
out of the republican state conven
tion here today.
Ex-Governor Aldrich, who in the
cool of the morning had said that not
a republican could be elected in Ne
braska unless the convention repudi
ate the national platform declaration
for exclusive federal control of rail
road rates, grew calm and docile un
der the heat of the sun and the Gur
ney's hour and forty minutes speech.
E. L. King of Osceola, who had said
that Nebraska republicans should
never indorse so repugnant a prin
ciple, grew quiet and peaceful under
the insistence of party leaders that
Nebraska could expect no help from
the national ticket or committee if it
slapped the national platform in the
And so, working together, the
standpatters, the heat anl the length
of Gurney's speech controlled the con
vention. By the time the platform
was reported at 5:15 p. m., only about
GO per cent of the delegates were in
the hall to approve the draft, their
principal business. They did it per-
funtorily and unanimously, without
cheers or enthusiasm. Then they ad
journed. Many Straddlers.
The platform committee had iu
delayed in vain. Out of its long de
liberations had come a platform
which must excite admiration bv its
innocuousness. It indorsed the pri
mary as a principle, but declared the
need of amendments to remedy glar
It spoke naught of prohibition, de
spite the overwhelming dry sentiment
of delegates, but it pledged its candi
dates to enforce bv statute and execu
tive act any constitutional amend
ments he people may adopt, on any
It approved the entire national
platform, including the troublesome
railroad plank, and then qualified this
by a paragraph which appears to
mean that the original indorsement is
to be taken with a grain of salt or i
not, just as individual republicans
may Unci expedient under varying
