The populist county convention is
dated for the second Friday in Aug

From all points of view it is evident

and Sherman county will be entitled
to three delegates. Are there three
in the county?

U. S. senator and he don't care a
tinker's dam about the action of the
state convention, but looks to the
Rosewater captured the Douglas
delegation last week and starts in
the senatorial race with 83 votes from
his own county. It begins to look as
if toe old man was in to win.

best evidence pointing to his nomi

to Buffalo the nominee for that office,

Fatal Accident From Fire.
Word was received here Wednesday
morning that Leo Fletcher, aged 18
years, a son of Milton I letefaer living
some four miles from Comstock, and
a grandson of Mr. and Mrs. J. C.
Fletcher of this city, had been
seriously burned while assisting a
woman and her 3-year-old child whose
clothes had become ignited through
the explosion of an incubator lamp,
and whose death followed. The case
of the young man was reported alarm
ing and Grandpa and Grandma Fletch
er immediately left for his bedside.
Aftermath comment on the work
of the republican county convention
bears out the wisdom of the delegates
in all respects. The resolutions are
considered with the most supreme
pleasure as covering the sentiment
of the republicans of the county,
while tiie candidates selected are
satisfying to the party as a whole
and will without doubt receive the
hearty support of the voters at the
polls in November and be overwhelm
ingly elected. Mr. Robert P. Starr,
who was unanimously chosen as our
candidate for county attorney, is a
bright, self-made young lawyer, lias
shown good legal ability since coming
among us, lias acquired a flattering
practice in our courts, and has a large
and constantly increasing clientage.
His nomination is a compliment to
the young republicans of Sherman
county, and his consequent election
assured. Mr. Starr, though a com
paratively young man, lias led a most
strenuous life. At the tender age of
13 years lie was thrown upon his own
resources, and from that time to the
present lias had to rely upon his
individual self in making a living,
gaining for himself a good legal
education, and building up a law
practice that might well be the envy
of lawyers of much greater years and
more wide experience. Mr. Starr was
for years a trusted employe of rail
road companies in the capacity of
telegraph operator and station agent.
He held the secretaryship of import
ant committees in two sessions of the
Iowa senate some years since, and
was a trusted clerk in the office of
Gov. .lackson. during that executive’s
administration of Iowa aflairs. He
was secretary of the committee on
printing in the Nebraska senate the
session of 1882-3. and in all of the
places of honor lie has filled lias been
highly commended as a faithful and
competent man. He was a student
of law at the Nebraska State Uni
versity. graduating with high honors.

at Aurora, came to Loup City, where
his life has been an open hook to our
people, and shows the success lie has
accomplished and the record made
in his unanimous nomination for the
county attorneyship in the county
convention lately held. The conven
tion made no mistake in calling Bobt.
P. Starr from private life to accept
the nomination for the above re
sponsible place, and we believe he will
be a faithful servant of the people in
that office, to which he will lie elected

The laying of the corner stone of
the new Catholic church of this city

wrong direction, but trusting to their
friends whom they heard laughing

by the way, when they realized their
mistake, but still drove on suppos
