Republican City Convention Held
Friday Evening.
MptKrt. Newell. Unruh and Kerr Again
Placed on the Ticket Dave Miller
Nominated Fur Police Judge
Other Happening.
The republican city primaries were
opened at five o'clock Friday after
noon and closed at seven The coun
cilmanic ticket nominated is as fol
lows: First v.ird, Homer McKay; sec
ond ward, J F. Ilinshaw; third ward,
F. Il.Steimker; fourth ward, Charles
S.Johnson; fifth ward, Joseph Lloyd.
The convention was "harmonious''
in the extreme, and was utterly
devoid of interest, but for several very
ludicrous situations. The nomina
tions were all made by acclamation,
with the exception of members of the
school hoard. It was a noticeable
fact that not one of the nominees
thanked the convention for "honors
thrust upon them,"etc, and they also
failed to state that "the democrats
wouldn't know they had been in the
race after April 7." They foresaw
the handwriting on the wall, and
didn't feel lie cracking jokes.
S. II. Atwood called the convention
to order and J. Y. Johnson wa
made temporary chairman. Jesse L.
Root declined the secretaryship and
John lieuuie was named. The fun
commenced when the secretai y began
reading the delegates' names. The
iirst name read was that of Mike
Mauzy. the next democratic council
man from the first ward. This caused
all colors of consternation in there
publican camp, but elicited vociferous
applause from the "Sixth" warn dele
gates, who, by the way, were quite
numerous, occupying the rear end
of the room. A consultation ot
war was held, and after a few minute
Mike's name was cruelly stricken from
the list of first ward delegates, auo
substituted by that of his brother.
On motion of Ami Todd, the temp
orary organization was made perma
neut, and the nominations were thei.
declared in order.
After a few minutes of suspense.
Todd arose and nominated Mayoi
Xewell, and, as no one else desired t
risk defeat, the nomination was mad
by acclamation applause Somebod ,
presumable from the "sixth" ward
feebly called for a speech, but Mr
Xewell didn't want to disturb the har
mony, and failed to respond. Cbet
Smith nominated J. I. Unruh foi
treasurer, hich w as also made unani-
mmw ti,i Ft C. KVrr's nnminatioi
for clerk, b Crof . Eikenbary, met with
no opposition. A nominee for poli
judi:e was not out, and finally Mr
Todd arose, and, After stating tha
"the third ward could produce a can
didate for all of the offices," presented
the name of Dave Miller for that posi
tion, and he was placed upon the
S. A. Davis, II. 13. Windham and
Dr. Marshall were put up as nominees
for school board. Davis was nomi
nated on the fir3t ballot, but Wino
ham and Marsnall tied. Windham,
however, was victorious on the second
ballot, and was accordingly declared
nominat-d. This ended the business
and the meeting was adjourned.

Police Judge Archer, in looking ovei
his records for the past three years,
finds that the arrests made by the po
lice during that time have been grad
ually decreasing In 1S93 there wert
131 arrests made, in 1S94 only 90, while
in 1695 the record was eighty arrests.
Judge Archer says that, judging from
the first two months of this year tbt
arrests for 189C will be less than in
any of the above years. This is a mat
ter of congratulation fur every citizen
of Plattsmouth.
