Major McKii:oy has made matters so
lively in his own state that he could llnd
time to leave it and go to Ottiunvva,'
Iowa, and address the crowd at the coal
palace. The fact is that llcinley
stock is a.vay above par. The peo
ple liave bieo watching the working of
the tariff law which heats his name and
tltey see that it was gotten up in the in
terest of the masses and not for a
favored few. If the halls of congress
contained more men like McKinley the
country would be better off.
A company has been organized for the
purpose of buildinji a line of road from
Casper, Wyo., the terminus of the F. E.
& M. V., throu;fli the Bijf Horn basin to
Butte, Mont. This will open up a vast
territory and will make this line of road
an important one and will develop the
oil mid miners! resources of the country
through which t lie line will pass. The
try of "Westward, ho ! ' w again being
taken up and the tide of emigration west

changes in the new couutrjes are confi

Tito giTOt plan of: sending iiu advertis
ing train from Nel.i:i:!;a through the
east hits so fur matured that the success
of the scheme in assured. Over forty
counties liave made arrangements to be
"in it" and great good will lie accom
plished. Dawes and Box Butte counties
have both arranged to be represented in
tile train. It is to be regretted that
Sioux county could not lie represented
for there is more free government land
in Sioux comity yet open to settlement
than any other county in the state,
and the 800,000 acres in Sicux county are
waiting for men who v. i tit homes to
come and settle. But if n!t the people in
Sioux county keep at work they wil
nucceed in "coaxing" a g;i nl many new
people to come here.
There seems to be a growing demand
for Blaine to be the standard bearer of
the republican party in W93. The ad
ministration of President Harrison has
been satisfactory in almost every r-j
ticular and it does not appear to lie any
objection to him, but the brilliant work
of the "Plumed Knight" shines forth
with Mich brilliancy that it has eclipsed
all else and lie stands out in all his greit
otm as a statesman. It is reported tliat
he says he will not be a candidate and
that bis influence will be for the present

The work of tlie judicial convention at
Valentine lat week shows tliat the re
publicans of tlie 15th judicial district
want men ou t!ie bench who are capable
of tilling tiie jxisition of judge and who
liave minds too broad to allow any little,
lrtty jiersonal likes or dislikes iiiterfe-e
with tins exercise of their duty. T!
nomination of Judge Kfnkaid to be
own successor, by acclamation, wad in
dicative of the high esteem in which t',iat
di.-tinguislied jurist is held. He has for
yes,rs presided over the largest district in
the state and ofthe cases taken to jhe
scjireme court lias been reversed but
twice. A record of which any jud;;e
may well feel proud. His rulings are
.just, impartial and firm and he lias tlie
resect and confidence of every attorney
who iractices before him and also cf
those wlio appear as clients, and the re
publicans did well when he was named
as their choice. In the selection of Hon.
Alfred Bartow as his conferee the con
vention displayed commendable wis
dom. The deep laid scheme of the dem
ocrats to capture tlie place for alien
Boyd's appointee did not work with tlie
republicans and the nomination of Mr.
Bartow will cause all hojie of success of
the recently appointed judge in the cam.
paign to fade into thin air. Mr. Bartow
is a lawyer of excellent ability and a
great deal of experience. He is a close
studeot of the law and has a faculty of
applying it iu the right manner. There
is no doubt but what for the next four
years after January it will be Judges
Kinkaid and Bartow who will preside in
the big 13th district and the dignity of,
the court -fill lie upheld. 1
Tlie fa.ll term, of the district court for
Sioux county will convene on next
Thursday, October 8th. Judge Kinkaid
will preside. The following is the list of
jurors drawn to serve at said term:
Nels Engbret, Geo. Bowen, Gridley
Thayer, M. J. Weber, Wm. Nicholson,
John Mosley, J. "W Castle, Samuel
Thomas, John Price, Wm. Dixon,
Harry Brown, J. J. Wasserberger, O. A.
Garten, W. B. Harris, N. D. Hamlin,
Christian Jensen, Gerhard Reinders,
Aaron Vandekau, J. H. Newlin, J. E.
Mar&teller, John Graham, E. P. Mauie,
E. E. Livermore, J. Stimson. There are
a number of important cases on the
docket to lie tried during the term.
The St ate Cou vent inn.
The republican state convention last
Thursday demonstrated the fact that the
party which has accomplished so much
in the last thirty years, is still in shape
do a great deal more, Tlie opposition
has for the past year been predicting dis
aster to the republican party because of
the aggressive position it has taken,
but when the party met in stale con
vention all such ideas took their depart
ure for that convention was .is enthusi
astic in its work and as clear in its judg
ment as such a gathering could be. The
greatest work for tlie convention wai
the selection of a candidate for the su
preme court The candidates most
prominent were the retiring justice,
AmasaCohb, ex-Justice M. B. Reese and
Judge A. M. Post, of Columbus. There
was, of course, a good deal of opposition
to Cobb for various reasons. The Doug
lass county delegation was mostly op
posed to him because he helped to oust
Boyd, while some of the anti-monopolists
believed him to be a railroad man.
Reece had a good deal of opposition,
some of which evidently arose from the
fact of his views on the liquor question.
The former went into the light with 199
and the highest he received was on the
second formal ballot when he received
218 votes. Reece received his highest
vote, n the informal ballot which was
2IH. The winner, Jurge A. M. Post, re
ceived on the informal ballot but 09
votes, but he continued to gather
strength until on tlie fourth 'formal bal
lot he received 29-1, and the number
necessary to choice was 387, and he was
declared the choice of the convention.
For regents of the state university,
Charles Marple and H. P. Shummay
Dr. S. D. Mercer, of Omaha, was
elected chairman of the state central
committee, which was in keeping with
the selection made for candidates. A
ringing platform was adopted which
shows that the republicans of Nebraska
are alive to the interests of the west, and
a resolution was passed urging the
claims of Omaha as the place in which
hold the next national republican con
vention. The utmost good feeling prevailed in
the convention and there are no sores to
be healed, but the republican party will
march in solid phalanx to victory on
The name of Hon. O. M. LombertHOn,
of Lincoln, is being favorably mentioned
for successor to Judge Cooley as member
of the interstate railroad commission.
There is no man better fitted for the po
sition than Mr. Lambertaon and he
would perform the duties of the office
with credit to himself and to bis state.
He is a man possessed of broard views
and a clear, logical mind, qualities of
the greatest importance to member oi
the interstate commission.

How it was Done,
Little Cottonwood, Sept 29, im.
CkxtkaL Com: We are liaving tine
weather for threshing and fall work here.
The political pot is commencing to
boil here. There was a caucus held here
last Monday to nominate candidates for
precinct offices and to elect delegates to
the Peopleslndependent Convention of he
second commissioner district, but it ap
jiears that there were only a select few
notified that such caucus would be held.
I have not seen n-y notices posted. I
am not very mm riterested in the pre
cinct offices, as to liich party the offi
ces belong to, jut so they are good reli
able men, but it is disgusting to see how
men will sneak aroupd nnd arrange
meetings to prevent tl:;- g;.-ral public
from taking part hi the une.
W. A. Raum was aware of the caucus,
however, ami perhaps he thought that if
it became generally known tliat there
were to be precinct officers nominated,
he would not be chosen as one of them.
If he thought so he understands the feel
ing in this community pretty well, as
there lias been but few elections where
Mr. Raum was not a candidate for office.
The people are getting tired of his want
ing to serve them, and have given him
to understand by their votes that he is
not wanted, but he bobs up every time.
lie will find out at the coming election
again tliat he is not wanted, but it ap
pears that he is bound to be an officer, as
he is now doing the duty of road over
seer in this district.
I will keep you posted in regard to tlie
political situation us well as I can, but
there is too much work to do, out
side of politics, to do justice to tlie
matter. However, I want the political
schemers to understand that the secret
caucus business will not benefit those
who participated In the same to any
great extent, t
