'Lincoln, Neb., August 23. At the
second day's session of the Nebraska
prohibition convention the following
nominations were made: F. P. Wigton,
of Norfolk, supreme judge; Mrs. Jennie
F. Holmes, of Tecumseh, president of
the state W. C. T. U., ami L. B. Pal
mer, of Hustings, grand worthy chief
templar of the L O. of G. T., for regents
of tbe state university.
Some discussion was bad on the pro
priety of nominating a candidate for
congress from the Second congressional
district to succeed Laird, but the matter
was finally referred to the prohibition
ists of that district for final action.
The committee on platform then sub
mitted the following.
The prohibition party of Nebraska in
state convention assembled acknowledge
Almighty God as the supreme ruler of
the universe; heartily endorse the plat
form and principles enunciated by the
national prohibition party in convention
at Indianapolis in
Tbe recent purchase of numerous
breweries by an English syndicate that
already owns nearly all the saloons iu
Great Britain and Ireland, with the
avowed purpose of likewise controlling
the saloons of America, and through
them the politics of America, renders
tenfold greater the cupahility of hi in
who fails to identify himself at once
with a political party that declares in
unmistakable terms its undying hostility
to this kind of foreign domination
through t he agency of the criminal
classes. This demonstrates the fore
sight and correct position of the prohi
bitionists in demanding and working for
national constitutional prohibition.
We arraign the republican party of
Nebraska for its double dealing and
treachery to the cause of the people of
this state as made manifest iu the dual
submission bill which passed the hist
legislature, submitting the prohibitory
amendment to avoid political w reck, and
at the same time submitting the license
amendment without petition, thus indi
cating to every republican partisan that
the defeat of prohibition is to be accom
plished in tho interest of republican dis
tillers, breweries, and saloon keepers,
who in turn are to remain loyal to the
party of high license.
We -pledge the-iiiianimeufl-impportof
the prohibition party. We also recog
nize and thoroughly condemn the demo
cratic party iu its opening and direct
hostility to all measures designed to pro
hibit the lupior traffic.
Resolved, That we favor government
control of the railroad and telegraph
Wo pledge the unanimous support of
the prohibition party, press and politi
cal machinery to the pending prohibi
tion, and demand of the republican par
ty and party press that they no longer
deceive the people, but take a position
cither for or against prohibition, that all
may know on which side the party ma
chinery is being used.
Resolved, That w hile we believe most
firmly in the wisdom and necessity of
keeping all our work separate from all
combinations and free from nil compro
mises, we express our hearty sympathy
with the honest efforts of all temperance
men and women to secure the psssage
of the pending prohibition amendment.
We favor the complete enfranchise
ment of women.
As tbe Australian ballot system em
bodies the best protection to the voter
iu his rights, therefore we urgo its
We declare opposition to all trusts
and monopolies, of which the liquor
tratlic is the chief.
We rejoice in the wonderfully wide
and pure work of that goodly sisterhood,
the Women's Christian union, and com
mend its bold add well-managed attack
upon the stronghold of legally en
We hold the saloons largely responsi
ble for the alarming increase of the
desecration of the Sabbath and as the
training school of anarchy. Its notori
ous disregard of Sunday law in Cincin
nati and other cities, defying state and
municipal authority, is full evidence of
their set pnrpose to violate the order
and sanctity of the day.
Believing that the wage earner is worthy
of his hire, and believing that the larg
est revenue to the saloon comes through
the laboring classes, and believing that
the saloou thus stands iu tbe way of the
elevation and advancement of labor,
we invite the wage earners of every
class to join our party in its war against
this greatest and most conscienceless
monopoly the world has known.
As a platform of principles can only
become practical through a tarty
pledged to their enforcement, there
fore, we urge every one opposed to the
saloon and its attending evils, to unite
with the prohibition party, tbe only
party committed to the adoption of the
amendment and its iuforcemeut thereaf

Lincoln dispatch to tbe Omaha Bee :
The sweeping change in the decedent
laws of the state, wrought by the pass
age of tbe act recited in chapter forty'
seven of the session laws of 1883, seems
fo come in for a full measure of criti
cism. Division twelfth, of section thirty,
"If the estate shall leave no widow
nor kindred, his estate shall escheat to
the state of Nebraska; providing, furth
er, that the homestead, if any, left by
tbe estate shall decend as follows: The
homestead shall be appraised by tho
county treasurer and tbe county clerk
aud one freeholder to be appoiuted by
the judge of the comity court, all to be
residents of tbe county in Luh tLe
homestead is situated. Tm Ife of
the county court shall, within aixty JT
after be has Wn notified by any person
of the death of the deceased and that
the inteslatJ leaves a " ,?r "
the judge of the county court shall as
certiiu said facts from any other source
shall apiH.int such appraisers
notify the county treasurer aud
county clerk and the appraiser
.Pointed by said judge of the county
court iu writing, to meet on the day
fixed by said judge within thirty days
from the notice to meet at his office
The said appraisers shall then proceed
at once to appraise the home-ie-d ef
tlie deceased at its cost value, which ap
praisement shall be made and returned
in writing, under oath, by sud apprais
ers, and shall 1 made n par', of the rec
ords of saidc t. In case that if a
of the said appraiser shall fall to meet,
the court shall apiiit other free liol.l
ers in their nlace, who shall proceed an. I
appraise sai.l homestead under this pro
vision, ami anv vacancy at any time
shall he tiled in the same way. the
jiid-e of the co-uiitv court shall thereup
on deduct, from said appraisement, tne
amount of encumbrance, if any, npon
sai.l homestead, and if the residue does
not esceed the sum of SLOW, wild home
stead shall descend to the widow in ab
solute title, subject to the encumbrance
on the mine, if any; in case there is a
residue after deducting the amount of
encumbrance, if any, and the U
shall descend as provided in this act.
The citation is made to show that the
homestead of intestates must be sold
under anv and every circumstance, ami
the fact provokes unlimited criticism
here, although its purchase price, after
the pavment of all debts or incum
brances, descends to tliedirect heirs. It
appears that the mother, with four or
five minor children, if such cases
bo found, will have to give
up her home for whatever resi
due mav come to her through a
forced sale, "i regard the decedent
law us passed by the late legislature,
said one of the state officials to the bee
representative to day, "as the weakest
and most unjust law that ever found a
place on our statute books. Its provis
ions should be understood and compre
hended by every parent in the state. To
lie emphatic, no parent ought to neglect
making a will. It might prevent end
less heartaches and breaking up what
would prove to be happy and prosper
ous homes. I want to say, also, that
husband mid wife must be of one mind
when it comes to will-ninkiug, or. ac
cording to the new law, tiie mil would
not be of any account. ' The consent of
the wife is ncces-arv when it conies to
disposing of property by testament, and
the same thing is true ou tho other

been issued: '
"No person shall bp appointed ns a !

ascertained by suitable tests. A special i
agent should have a good character, (
good lialuts, good health, a courteous
bearing and address, and should not be
incapacitated by age or other cause for
active work. He should possess fair
ability and intelligence, aud bo able to

the crowd. The pu-sident naived his
hand aud was escorted to a carnage in
waiting. Thousands of persons lined
Central avenue, Third street. Fourth

back. Tbe reception committee, bended
bv Governor Foraker, Iyor Mosby
and Comptroller Stevens, met the presi

multitude. At many placus the crowds
blocked the wav in their eagerness to
obtain n sight of the ruler of the nation.

HACK AT THE OLD HOUR.
Inmasapoms, Ind., August '.'2. The
reception last night given to l'rosideut
Harrison on his return home to take
part in the monument exercises after
six months' absence was as enthusiastic
as were the parting congratulations
when be left for Washington last Feb
ruary. At the Union station there was
a great crowd to greet him, and at 9
o'clock, when the train from Cincinnati
rolled into tho depot, the cheers were
most cordial; at the same time a battery
from the arsenel under command of
Captain I'.eford. U. S. A , gave the usual
salute of tiveiity-one guns. In less than
twenty minutes alter tlie arrival of llio
train, the president and his party were
at tho ii"W Dennison, the drive thern
being wit icssed by throngs of cheering
people. )n leaving the station thu

preceded the curriage in which were

came a hundred or more of the aur
vivors of the president's old regiment,
Following were carriages of the com
mittee that went to Cincinnati and the
committee likewise of citizens to meet
the distinguished guest, Tho line was
bended by a hand, and thus, with tlm

force to the reception, the march con
tinued. At the new Denison there was a great
crowd blocking the streets and packing
the corridors. Alighting the president
was saluted by the governor's guards,
which the President acknowledged as he
