nominate a candidate for congress, at North
Platte. July 3, at 10 a. in.
Used Rays that he in a candidate for
the) presidential nomination and for that
ulooe and that be will not accept the
Mcoad place on the ticket
Chicago populists will send a double
header delegation to the national con
vention of that party. All does not ap
pear to be harmonious there.
It i given out that Cleveland and his
cabinet will support the nominee of the
fit. Louis convention on a sound money
platform rather than the nominee of tlie
Chicago convention ou a free silver plat
form. A great many democrats all
over the country will do the same thing.
We learn from tlie World-Herald of
Friday, that tbe leaders of the republi
cans la the four counties in the west end
of this senatorial district met in ex-Judge
Bartow's office on tbe 20th and declared
that their choice for state senator from
this district to be S. Backey of Ains
Vforth. We say unien. If this district
hbould have the misfortune to elect a
republican for this district we believe
tbe mantle could tall on no more worthy
boulders than those of 8. Backey. He
ia a broad and liberal minded man, a
deep thinker, a good reasoner, and a
man of sterling qualities, and we repeat
that if our next senator should be a re
publican we hope that one will be B.
Backey. Ainawortii Hume Rule, pop).
Tbe jury in the trial of Arthur Morri
son for the murder of Von Harris at
Crawford, occurred at Bushville last
week before Judge Grimes, of North
Platte. The case was bard fought by
both sides and resulted in a verdict of
acquittal. The verdict was quite a sur
prise to the public as that of tbe first
trial was of murder in the first degree,
fixing tlie penalty at death, and for a
second trial to result in acquittal is cer
tainly remarkable. It is reported that
relatives of tlte dead have sworn to take
Xorriaon's life if tbe law did not and it
may be that another tragedy will yet
grow out of tbe affair.
Some claim that there are too many
candidates for state office in tlie sixth
district to allow any of them to secure a
place on the ticket. That is a wrong
view to take of the caae. George A.
Eckles, of Dawes county, in his candi
dacy for auditor is the only man in the
western half of tlie state. The sixth dis
trict extends more than three-fifths of
the distance across the state and Broken
Bow, the home of Jewel t, and Lexing
ton, where MacColl resides, are both in
the eastern half of tlie state. The west
half of the state has been left largely to
drooth. populism and U. O. Stewart and
if tbe eastern half will tse actta the
- hoc lettK saougn to nominate Eckles it
wUI Increase the republican vote in this
art of the state and help to redeem it
Iron the blight of populism.
The Graphic is pleased to note tlie
kind notices appearing now in the news
paper of the fitness of H. Backey of
Aias worth to fill the position of senator
from the Mth district- Mr. Backey is
ot seeking this honor, and that fact
Joan convinces us that the people want
him. He is as able, honest awl upright
yea tie man, and as this teems to be a
year in which the people are going to
take a hand ia politics, it ia no wonder
to ne that they have picked on Mr.
Eaoawy from our sinter district. Just as
aaaa as the rsMbiicans commence to
i np such moo ss be for office, just
i ssisats marks tbe brctoning of r-
pMkmm supremacy. By all means
flee Hr. Eacaojr tbe awmisaUioe, and the

Tl.e proceeding of the twenty-fourth
annual session of the Nebraska Prea
Association U before us and is a finely
executed job of printing and the York
IlrpuUUiiH is to be congratulated ac
The republicans will meet in St. Louis
on next Tuesday to nominate William
M Kiuley for president and to transact
such other business as may properly
come before the convention.
By reason of a promotion F. W. Smith
goes from Alliance to Lincoln. By this
northwest Nebraska loses one of the best
republic!) workers it had. As member
of the state -ntral committee in tbe
last campaign he did excellent service.
In tlie case of the man, Barker, of
Crawford, of which mention was made
in these columns last week, an informa
tion with live counts was tiled ugainst
him and bis bond lived at foOO, in de
fault of which he went to jail. He will
be tried in Julv.
The state board of equalization has
equalized the assessment of the railroad.
telegraph and sleeping car companies fur
tlie year. The average assessed valua
tion of the railroads jier mile is$4,.Vr7.28.
The B. &. M. is assessed nt $1,000 per
mile more than any other road. The
total of the above interests in, Nebraska
is assessed at :872,809.3i" And yet
there are a great many people who con
tend that tbe railroad representatives
should not take part in politics.
Judge Kinkaid will be the republican
nominee for congress in this dist. ict this
fall and that's tlie "end on it." The con
vention will be composed of 177 dele
gates; 58 of these will come from the
judges s district; it will require t9 to
nominate, leaving the judge but 81
votes short in his own district. But Mr.
Kinkaid is not a candidate of tlie fif
teenth judicial district alone; he is the
choice of the great majority of the peo
ple of the entire congressional district
and he will be nominated ou the second
formal ballot. The lirst formal ballot
will, we llgure, be devoted to giving
complimentary votes to favorite sons.
The judications are that at the repub
lican state convention Attorney General
Churchill will be accorded the nomina
tion for a second term, notwithstanding
the fact tliat Omaha endorsed two other
aspirants for state office and turned
Churchill down. Such an act would be
wholly proper, as all the other one-term
republicans will be re-nominated without
opposition, (unless it should come from
Omaha) and as all have given to the
state good service they are entitled to
a second term, lhe republicans 01
Omaha had no good reason for their ac
tion in regard to Churchill, neither can
they hope to win with two candidates.
Tlie Valentine Republican lias worked
itself up to fever heat on account of the
discussion of the political situation by a
few republicans at Chadron. The editor
of that paper lias evidently got a wrong
idea of what transpired, It was simply
an informal sizing up of tlie situation in
general and in the interest of no one in
particular. No organization was made,
no promises or pledges were asUed or
given. On the senatorial question io
quiry was made if any of the west end
counties had aspirants for the Domina
tion and none had been heard of. Syver
Backey, of Ainsworth had been brought
out by his home people and some of
those present who knew him said he was
a good, available man. No seal of ap
probation was placed on him or any oth
er man. Those who were present at the
meeting simply seek republican success
and if the republicans of Cherry county,
or any other county in the district, have
a man wIk would prove a stronger can
didate than Backey, let them trot him
out. The Brown county man has no
cinch on the nomination. The senti
ment seems to be tliat the nomination
should go to some one of tlie counties
east of Sheridan, and that the very
strongest man should be selected, and
tbe fact that no ma n in the west end
seeks the place is pod proof of such sen
timent. If the editor of the Rrpubltcan
and the republicans of the eastern coun
ties of the district show the same unself
ish desire for the success of the party as
was evinced at the gathering- to which
he takes exceptions northwest Nebraska
will represented by a republican senator
at the next session of the legislature.
Tlie most attractive commencement
gown are of tamboured, dotted Swiss,
ana juaia muslins, ana inula siik or
crape. The tamboured muslins are es
pecially prettv and dressy -looking from
trie introduction of transparencies of
white net in irregular scroll-like pat
terns, through which the silk-lining
shows. Tlie fabric is so handsome that
it requires no trimming, but the French
coutuneres cut the skirt at the foot in
shallow waves and fill it in with a rufte
of lace. Plain muslins are trimmed
with lace-edged ruffles, headed by one or
more rows 01 insertion. 1 here is a Inn
cy for laying tlie fullness of afl these
thin fabrics in plaits from the waist to
the hem and pressing them flat; and the
very prettiest India silks and crape are
accordion-plaited. Where it is desired
to, introduce color in the commencement
gown a colored lining is used, either
taffeta or lawn, and the ribbons match
it. Petticoats of nlain lawn. Dink. blue.
heliotrope, etc, with lace-edged flounces,
can now be bought in the shoos. From
