Populist Senatorial Con Tent Ion
A delegate convention of the Peoples
Independent party of the fourteenth Sen
atorial District of Nebraska is hereby
called to meet at Valentine Nebraska on
Saturday August 10 IMS at 10 a. m.,
for the purpose of placing in nomination
a candidate for said district and for the
transaction of such other business as may
properly come before ton convention.
The representation is based upon the
vote cast for Hon. J. J. Sullivan for Su
preme Judge at the general election of
1897 vis; One delegate at large and one
for each 100 votes or majority fraction
thereof which gives the following by
Box Butte 0
Keya Paha -4
It if recomended that no proxies be
llowed but the delegates present cast
tbe full vote of their reepoeUve coun-
KIoux County's Candidate.
Sioux county is entitled to tbe repre
sentative in the state legislature this
fasl, and the Jocrsal believes no betber
man in the entire district can be found
to represent the interests of the people
at Lincoln this enmming winter than
Hon. Lewis Oerlach, our fellow towns
man. Certainly tio perron, the paid tool
of trusts, eorporation or combines would
dare to approach Kim witb the intent to
buy his vote or influence in the interest
of nefarious legislation even though it
is -said, "every man has his price." Mr.
Oerlach has the courage of his convic
tions and never V.esiUtes to defend What
he thinks is right no matter where he
may be or who is present lie is gentle
manly and courteous at all times; is a
neighbor that every body likes and re
spects; is nn honest and thorough busi
ness roan and is emmanently fitted and
qualified to fill any position tsndered
him in the gift of the people and, as a
lepislator would be the equal of any in
the state. In the opinion of the Journ
al no mistake can possibly be made in
making him the nominee of the fusion
forces in the district this fall. Of course
the policy of the JeuitSAL is democratic
but the principals advocated by Hon.
Lewis Oerlach are as democratic as ours
even though lie be a populist. Hence,
should he receive the nomination, and
we believe he will without doubt, the
Journal will support him heartily dur
ing the campaign.
Notice to The Delegates.
By the authority of the secretary of
the Peoples Party state committee the
Journal is authorizad to state he has
secured a rate of one fare for the ronnd
trip overall roads from all points in
Nebraska to Lincoln and return for state
convention, tickets to bo sold Aug. 1st
and 2nd, good to return until and includ
ing August 8th, 1893.
The first state election will occur
Monday next, in Alabama.
Manna must have gone on a summer
vacation as we do not hear anything
of him lately.
Judge Thompson of Grand Island is a
candidate for gubernatorial honors before
the conventions at Lincoln Aug., 2nd.
Oenl. Miles and transports loaded with
troops which left Santiago more than a
week ago landed on Porto Rican soil
on the 26th inst
By all honorable means, senator Allen
should be returned to the U. S. senate
by tbe legislature that will convene at
Lincoln this coming winter.
General Fitzhugh Lee's corps station
ed at Jacksonville, Fa., have been order
ed to Porto Rico, according to a special
dispatch to the New York Journal from
Washington. That means that the 3rd
Neb. Vol. Regiment, commanded bo Col.
W. J. Bryan, a part of Loe's corps will
without doubt get to see active service
before many days more.
The "Conservative", Vol. I No, 1
edited and published at Nebraska city
by J. S Morton late secretary of agricul
ture under ex president Cleveland is now
before us. Typographically it is a per
fect specimen of journalism, also in
its style of composition. Its policy, we
cannot endore as it indicates too much
the imperial hand of the national gold
While in Chadron tbe fore part of the
week we learned from the different ones
that the democrats of Dawes county had
concluded to run a candidate of their
own for representative this fall. Should
they do so it means the defeat of the
reform forces in this district and it
would be jeopardising the election of
senator Allen for the upper house of
congress. It may be possible the popu
lists have not used the democrats just
right in Dawescounty but they are local
matters and can be righted next fall
when county officers are re-nominated.
Rear Admiral Dewey and Commodore
Schley are both democrats, and naval
constructor, Lieut Hobson is a populist,
so says the Denver News, and their fight
ing qualities compare quite favorable
with those of Maj. Oenl. Nelson A.
Miles, Commodore Sampson and Com
modore Watson, who are republicans.
Not-with-sUndlng the fact congressman
Orosvenor of Ohio, declared on the floor
of tbe national bouse of representatives
that "this is a republican war." Hav
ing hoard little of him since through the
newspapers or any other source, he has
doubtless hied himself away until this
Special Cable via Madrid.
says, Manilla surrendered to
the United States troops on
the 2Cth inst; report not con
firmed for sure as yel.
M. Carnbon the French
Ambassidor at Washington
has been entructed with the
delicate duty of formally pre
senting to President McKin
ley a proposition from the
madrid government looking
to peace negotiations in the
near future the first to be
offered thus far since the war
The republican party in Alabama have
indorsed the populist state ticket.
The campaign in New york this fall
is to be fought out on state issues.
We notice in the "public pulse" col
umn of the Omaha World-Herald, that
Judge Howard, editor of the Papillion
Times is mentioned as a possible candi
date for governor of this great common
The Middle of-the-road-national con
vention which was called to meet at
Cincinnati Sept. 25th, for the purpose
of nominating a candidate for president
in 1000 has been declared ' off . Their
bluff game did not work par excellence.
The JOURNAL'S New Year.
With this issue the Journal starts
on its 11 t.li year of existence aid while
we mention this fact, we also take the
same opportunity of thanking its many
friends for their never-ending favors, t is
the sole aim of its present pen pusher to
give the news unbaised just as
he knows it to be, hoping thereby to
meet the approbation of all; friends and
and enimies alike we mean political
enimies again we thank all our friends
for their kindness to the Journal and
hope with their aid and a great many
new ones to launch out farther in the
water's of the newspaper arena during
the coming year.
Hard to Please.
Editing this journal is a nice busi
ness. If we publish jokes people say
we are "rattle-headed." If we don't we
are an old fossil. If we publish origP
nal matters they say we dont give them
selections enough. If wa give them se
lection they say we are too lazy to write.
If we remain in the office we ought to
go out and hustle. If we go out then
we are not attending to our business. If
w dont go to church we are a heathen,
If we do we are a hypocrite. If we
wear old clothes they laugh at us: if we
wear good ones they say we have a
"pull," Now what are we to do? Just
as likely as not some one will say we
stole this item from our exchanges and
so we did. Exchange.
