The oommittee on plan of work rec
ommended "that the prohibition party,
the Good Templars, the W. C. T. U.
the anti -saloon republicans, democrat
and united labor men use their organ
isationa to carry out the agitation for the
passage of the prohibitory amendment
to our state constitution. We further
recommend that in each county and pre
cinct leagues be organized, aud that all
people, of whatever political opinion,
aa far as possible, co-operate with the
leagues for carrying the amendment.
We further recommend that the right
fully constituted officers of the afore
said organizations confer together to
provide for an eoonomio distribution of
labor, so that the greatest good may be
accomplished with the least expeudi
ture of time and money. We would
farther recommend that a number of
mass meetings be held in different parts
of the state for the purpose of creating
public sentiment in favor of the amend
The fallowing resolution was adopted:
Kesolved, By the Nebraska state pro'
hibition conference, held at Lincoln,
April 17 aud 18. 1889:
1. That, whereas, the last session of
the legislature saw fit to submit to a
vote of the people the question of a pro
hibitory amendment, we pledge the sev
erai organizations represented by us
that during the nest eighteen mouths
we will put forth our most earnest and
iiersisteut efforts to wvtnre the embodi
ment of prohibition in the organic law
of our state.
4. That while we deem it for the best
interest of the cause that we enter this
amendment campaign each organiza
tion under its own banner, working
through ita own methods, we will most
cheerfully co-operate with all lovers of
home, either in their individual capaci
ty or as organizations who are honestly
laboring for the same great principle.
8. That while we will be untiring in
labor for this great cause by the meth
ods we severally deem best, we do not
proiKMte to carry partisanism into our
work or pass unfriendly criticism upon
those who work by different methods
but with just aa sincere motives.
4. That whereas strong drink is the
greatest curse of the laboring class, we
urge on the labor element of the entire
state, of whatever party affiliation, to
unite with us in carrying the state for
5 Whereas a non-partisan eonferenoe
is being called to meet in this city on
June 5, therefore resolved, that as in
dividuals we recognize the most perfect
freedom to attend that, and any other
movement to ultimate victorv.
6. That with charity to all and malice
toward none, we enter hopefully and
determinedly into this contest for God,
home and native land, and urgently
call on the prohibitionists, the W. C. 1.
U., the Good Templars, and all other
temperance organizations to each per

STATE JOTTINGS IN BRIEF.
Yesterday, says the Omaha llepub

Oklahoma. A few stragglers left the
night before, but it was the colony itself
that left yesterday. Most of them came

guns and other weapons of offense and
defense. They seemed to think that
these were the only sure means of se

Washington dispatch: The board of
bureau officers, which has been consid
ering the proosals received for build
ing un armored coast defense vessel, has
completed its work and reported to the
secretary of the navy. It is understood
that the board finds that it is not im
Kssible to build a vessel under the low
est bid (Sl,fiU,000i, and comply ith
the terms of the aet of congress, which
fixes the totnl cost of naval rams, bat
teries and other nuval structures to be
buiit under its authorization at 82,000,-
000. Out of this total must coiue the
armor for a coast defense vessel, whicu
is not to be furnished bv a contractor,

boats, etf, and a submarine boat, fur
which proposals were received some
mouths ago. Altogether there would be
t deficit of about $IOO,ouO, if the lowest
bid for the building of this powerful
vessel were accepted. The next move
of the department, if the report is ac
cepted by Secretary Tracy, will be to r--
advertise for proKsuls, and if that fails
