Chairman Broadhead read an ad
dress to the convention. Speaking of
the course of the sound money Dem
ocrats he said: "They call us bolters,
if so we are bolting from an undemo
cratic platform." He would rather go
down in defeat than ride rough
shod over the principles of the party.
Occasionally he would mention Cleve
land's name and each time there was
loud applause. When he alluded to
Governor Stone's correspondence with
General Jo Shelby during the Debs
strike there was hearty applause.
The Chicago platform, he said, tended
toward anarchy and was dangerous to
the republic. Governor Stone's name
was mentioned several times and was
hissed nearly each time.
During the forenoon the delegations
from the various districts held cau
cuses and in all but the Second.Tenth,
Thirteenth and Fifteenth selected
aelegates to Indianapolis, electors and
members of the state committee.
Fred W. Lehman, the temporary
chairman of the convention, in taking
the chair said the cause was a forlorn
hope, because whoever won, it would
not be their part to rejoice with the
victors. "They say," he said, "if we
array ourselves in separate column,
we give aid and comfort to our an
cient enemy. We answer if we do not
we give aid to a Populism that threat

of Boone, Nick Thurman of Calls way
and Chester Krum of St Louis to
draw up the first draft Yeaman la
chairman of the full committee.
In a caucus at the Planters last
night the matter of naming a State
ticket was fully discussed. On account
of the Australian ballot law, which re

a State ticket ought to appear on the
National Democratic ballot A ma
jority were willing to vote for all the
candidates named at Jefferson City
except Stephens. One plan was to
name the State ticket nominated at
Jefferson City except governor and
nominate a candidate for governor,
and Fred W. Lehman of St Louis, J.
McD. Trimble of Kansas City and
Senator Sebree of Carroll county were
mentioned. The other plan was to
leave the space for governor blank
and let the voter write in whatever
name he might choose Lewis, Steph
ens, Jones or any other. The reason
assigned for fighting Stephens and no
one else was that the governor might
have the appointment temporarily of
a United States Senator if one of the
Senators should die, and it would
never do to let Stephens name the

IT LOST THEM VOTES.
Four Republican! Openly Denounce the
Qold Bug Demonstration.
The disgraceful character of the trans
parencies seen in the gold bug rally last
evening was the subject for much un
avorable comment by a large number of
republican's who were among the specta
tors. Four of them within a Post re
porters bearing denounced the inscrip
tions aa a disgrace to the party and
when the portrait of Bryan was burned
they declared that they had had enough
of republicanism and would henceforth
work for Bryan. Judging by the senti
ment heard on the streets today there are
several hundred republicans who will fol
low the example of the four mentioned.
Certain it is that a majority of the vet
erans in our midst are heartily disgusted
with the whole affair.
HIS OWN MEDICINE.
A Gage County Farmer Refused to
A gold bug farmer in Gage county went
into a bank and wanted to borrow $50
for ninety days. The banker being a
silver man decided to test the man's
financial theories by telling him he couid
have the money, but would draw up the
note payable in gold. The gold bug
"No, I won't do it." !
The banker then asked him if he was
not in favor of that money that made
gold the only money of the country, and
taia, "ii you succeea in getting what you
are voting for namely, the gold stand

This is one of many cases where a gold
bug refused to take his own medicine.

preaching it to kick himself for being led
blindly into the trap set for them by the
money power who holds notes and mort
gages on nearly every home in this land.

county farmer did, and decide to vote

PUNISHED FOK THE CRIME
Two Employes cf a Canton, O , Com
pany Lose Their Positions.
In reply to a letter written a short
time ago by a gentleman of this city as
to whether there was any truth in the
report that two men had been dis
charged by the Bonnot company of Can
ton, U., for going to the tram to see Mr.
Bryan when he paHsed through, the fol
lowing letter has been received:
Canton, O., Auk. 21. Mr. A. H. Glea-
son, Lincoln, Neb., Der Sir. I received
yours of the 14th several days ago. In
reply to your inquiry as to whether or
not Mr. Roath and Mr. Smith were dis
charged by the Bonnot company for
going to the train to see Mr. Bryan
when he passed through our city, will
eay that both of these gentlemen have
maae a statement to the public to that
effect. This statement has in part been
denied by the superintendent of the Bon
not company. I have a personal ac
quaintance with Mr. Roath, one of the
men discharged, and have every reason
to believe that he has told the truth
about the matter. Intimidation seems
to be quite common among the manu
facturers and railroad men of this state.
Several days aro another laboring man
of this city who has been a strong ad
vocate of free coinage of silver and Bry
an was discharged by his employer, his
employer stating at the time that he
bad no business going about the streets
advocating the election of Bryan. We
have in this city a very large Central
Bryan club, and also clubs in nearly
every ward as well as in every precinct
in the county. This county will without
doubt make a gain of at least 3,000
over last year. The silver men are ex
cwflingly enthusiastic. Yours very
truly, John C. Harmony.
Advice to Stont Women.
Sometimes stout women move the
arms gracefully, but the body has an
utter lack of liberty and free motion
or suppleness. Drawing her corsets
tighter never did make a stout woman
lees stout In appearance. The first care
is not to lace too tightly, the second Is
to banish all Ideas of being stout from
your mind and let the muscles have aa
free play as possible. All women can
learn to use their bodies gracefully,
even if there is a predisposition for
stoutness. Stout women are acknowl
edged to be the lightest dancers, and
there Is no reason why they should not
be graceful in pose and position. If
a woman draws her breath freely from
the bottom of the. lungs she diminishes
the effect of her size immediately, do
ing away with that ready-to-burst
look that is generally associated with
stoutness. That is the look that must
be avoided even If the waist measures
an inch or so more and the bust anil
shoulders gain a little.

Hunting the Wild Goat
The white goat, or Rocky Mountain
goat, as it is indiscriminately culled, is
a species of biff game rarely hunted by
sportsmen. This is not so much because
of the difficulty of killing the animal, nor
because of its actual rarity. It is a stu
pid animal, easily shot when once found,
it is not, however, found in the usual
hunting grounds, as are bear, deer, elk,
etc. It is remote from the common lo
calities, but where found is in goodly
numbers. It ranges very high np in the
mountains, above timber line usually,
among rocks and cliffs. This requires
great labor to get at it, but once there,
thehunter will get his game nine times
out of ten.
If you care to read of a goat hunt
made in the Bitter Root range in Mon
tana, in the fall of 1895, send six cents
.to Charles S. Fee, General passenger
agent, Northern Pacific railroad, St.
Paul, Minn., for Wonderland '96, which
recounts such a hunting expedition.
