First District Holds a Convention
THEEE PARTIES UNITED IN ONE
Twenty-three Ballots was Required
Everything Harmonious and all
Pleased with the Result. ;
An all Night Session wu Held to Facili
The populists democrats and free
silver republicans iu the first congres
sional district hold their conventions at
Tecumseh on Tuesday of this week. All
want them for the same Duroose. to se
lect a man who could and would defeat
the republican nominee, the present con
gressman from that district, Hon. Jesse
The several conventions were called to
order at about 4 p. m. and after affect
ing their permanent organteations, each
appointed a committee of seven mem
bers, these three committees to meet awl
decide upon some plan of action whereby
all three conventions might be united in
their action, and report the plan back to
their respective conventions for approval
or rejection. After the appointment of
these committees theseveral conventions
adjourned until 7:30 in the evening.
The three committees met at once and
after much argument and discussion
unanimously agreed upon a plan for one
large mass convention in which the rep
resentation should be 138 populists, 138
democrats and forty free silver republi
cans. All oft the conventions adopted
this plan and adjourned to meet in mass
convention in the opera house to agree
upon a candidate. The chairmen of the
several conventions were elected as
chairman and assistant chairmen of
this united convention and took turns
The balloting for candidates com
menced about 9 o'clock in the evening,
with the following candidates before the
convention: Judge J. H. Broady, Lin
coln; H. M. Boydston, Nebraska City,
and Matt Geriug of Cass county, as
democrats; J. C. McNerney and Q. W.
Berge, Lincoln: C.S. Upton, Cass, coun
ty; George W. Brewster and George A.
Abbott, Richardson county, and J. A.
LaMasterof Johnson county, as popu
lists; and George E. Hebner and Col. L.
C. Pace, Lincoln, as free silver republi
cans. The balloting proceeded with many
change, sometimes one candidate lead-
inir anil than unnr.hnr. The nonulistS
would not vote (or a democratic nominee
and the democrats would not vote for
a populist, while the republicans cast
their 40 votes for George E. Hibner.
On the 21st ballot, at 5 o'clock in the
morning, Mr. Hibner gave up the strug
gle and withdrew his name. Col. L.
C Pace, the other free silver repub
lican, had previously withdrawn.
This left only populist and democrats
before the Convention, and 159 votes
' were required to nominate, On the 23d
ballot all of the democrats voted for
Judge J. H. Broady 138 votes, 117 of
the populists voted for Berge with the
remainder scattering. .. The free silver
republicans cast eighteen votes forjor
(dera.) and twenty votes for Berge (pop)
and two, Hibner and Pace, did not vote.
The populists from Richardson county
and six from Johnson county voted for
Broady giving him 160 votes 'or one
more than the required number to nomi
nate. From the above it will be seen
thaat Broady was nominated by popu
list votes, from those counties where he
hadformarly presided as district judge
and was known and admired by all.
Immediately after the selection of
Judge Broady the mass convention or
caucus adjourned and each of the con
ventions met and formally placed him in
nomination. He is a strong candidate,
and all are well pleased with the result.

A Silver Club at Normal.
Lincoln, Nebraska, Aug. 12, 1896.
Last week a silver club was formed at
this place with an enrollment of about
100 members. Officers were elected and
arrangements made for the organization
of a flambeau club. Free silver 10 to 1
ie our war cry. We are especially proud
of our club as it contains persons who
were formerly the staunchest republicans
of our town. There are only three re
publican property holders in Normal and
immediate vicinity who refused to add
their names to the list and thereby ex
press their desire and wiUingness to aid
in the freeing of the toiling mass of this
nation. The organisation of these clubs
should be encouraged and every person
who is in favor of free silver honest
money should appoint himself as a com
mittee of one to Bee that an organiza
tion of the kind is formed in every town
and village. See to it also that the
county is polled and well represented.
Get out and let people know how you
feel about this allimportant financial
question. You will in that way win
more votes than you think for. We jvill
let you bear from us again.
