IN THE SOUTH.
The disintegrating south Is the theme
of a leading editorial in the Philadel:
phia Press. It first calls attention to
the election of a people's candidate to
the seat vacated by Mills, and the bitter
fight in the democratic ranks in Texas
Dver the nomination for governor. Ar
kansas furnishes another example. The
jld-hne democrats have Just nominated
i man for governor whom the reform
sloments characterize as a "traitor," a
J 'viper" etc , and declare that they will
pot support, lbe new party nas already
k strong foot-hold, and is growing rapia-
y. ine spilt in Aiaoama is permanent
he alliance wing being in the field with
full ticket and with excellent prospects
l)f success. In South Carolina where
Ithe alliance controlled the democratic
Dominations, the moss-back element has
lorganized another democratic party and
a complete split seems inevitable, lne
Press adds tbat these things will end In
revolutionizing the politics of the south.
Mayor Weir Does a Humane Act.
Much indignation was expressed at
all quarters at the action .of Police
Judge Waters in a case that came be
fore him last Saturday.
Charles Edwards, Jack Shearer and
Frank Rynkowski, three young men
were arrested Thursday on the charge
of securing transportation over the
Burlington on false pretences.
After lying in' jail until Saturday
they were finally given a hearing. The
accused showed that they paid an em
ployment agent in Kansas City to
secure them a job on the Wyoming ex
tension of the Burlington, They were
furnished transportation to Gillette,
Wyo., but when they arrived here they
learned that the work was1 in Kilpat
rick Bros. & Collins' mines and they
declined to go any further, and left the
train. The charge against them was
changed to vagrancy, because they had
committed no crime in refusing to carry
out their agreement with the
railroad company, and under
this they were fined by Judge
Waters $10 and costs each.
Shearer made a remark about the jus
tice of such proceedings and was fined
an additional $10. These men had done
nothing to subject themselves to the
charge of vagrancy. They had done no
begging and had not attempted any
thing of the kind. When these facts
became known a few citizens decided to
get these men out of jail where this
judicial outrage nad placed them.
They decided to commence habeas cor
pus proceedings but upon visiting the
jail it was learned that Mayor Weir
hrd exercised his prerogative, and had
pardoned the men, who were immed

Congressman Bryan Renominated by Ac
clamation At Sebraska City Th
Platform in Brief-
Also Nominated by a Petition by Citi
ten Regardless of Politics.
Congressman Bryan was renominated
for congress on the democratic ticket
on Mouday afternoon by acclamation.
This result has been a foregone conclu
sion for some time. The man who tried
to lit down on Mr. Bryan at the Omuha
convention were not "In if at Nebraska
City. J. D. Calboun made thenominac
ing speech, and he made a very good
one, and Mr. Bryan made a speech, a
very appropriate little speech, that
warmed up the hearts of his friend
and touched off the enthusiasm.
The congressional committee selected
is at follows: Lancaster, J. H. Broady;
Nemaha, J. W. Barbhart; Cass, Dr. W.
H. Deering: O oe, H. M. Boydston;
Johnson, H. L. Cooper; Pawnee, R. W.
Story; Richardson, J. L Cleaver.
The congressional committee has or
ganized be electing Judge Broady chair
man fndT.S A'len of Lancaster secre
tary. The platform renews devotioi to the
principles taught by Thomas Jefferson;
denounces the republican party for its
lfghlation in the interests of tbe few
and aga nst tbe many; demands tariff
for revenue only, free raw materials,
lowest duties on neeessar.es, : and
highest on luxuries; recommends an in
come tax; favors a double standard of
gold and silver money; denounces the
clandestine' demonetization of lilver as
an organized scheme to permanently
establish a moneyed aristocracy j in
America. The most important part of
the financial plank is as follows:
"We are in favor of only the honest
dollar of equal value with every other
dollar and to that end we demand the
immediate restoration of silver to Its
right of free coinage.) Thea it can be
determined whether the former ratio
between gold and silver is just, and if
need be make a fair readjustments of
the ratio between them not by clandes
tinely demonetizing or by striking
down either one or the other, but in an
honest way as the same tbing was done
under the administration of Andrew
Jackson and the congressional leader
ship of Thomas H. Benton in 1834."
The platform further declares against
bount'es and trusts; favors the ehctiou
of U. S. enat-jrs by popular vote;
favors liberal pens'ons; demands tt.ac
the public domain be reserved for
actual settler', and opposes ailen
ownership of land.
A petition was filed with the secre
tary of state yesterday signed by 150
names, nominating the Hon. W. J.
Bryan for congressman from the First
district as a citizen.', candidate.. The
Setition reads this way: . "Wa the un
ersigned qualified voters of Nebraska,
of tbe First congressional district
thereof, hereby organizing ourselves
into the citizen's party, do make the
following nomination for the office of
representative in the United States
congress, which office is to te filled at
the next ensuing election in the First
congressional district of Nebraska.
