The Democratic Convention at Lin
coln was a curious affair. A- synopsis
of the proceedings appears elsewhere.
Tire facts are the younger element of
the party just deliberately and with
malice afore-thought sat down on all
old chaps and say they mean to keep
them there. The soft money wing
won the day entirely, though we do
not believe they care one cent about
the money question in reality and as
soon as they can eliminate those they
oppose from power in the party, th
party as a party will return to its dog
mas on finance.
Y ICTORY I
Mr. MacMurphy, the candidate
from Cass did not get the nomina
tion, but was third on the list when
during the stampe.lo for Alexander
the delegation from Cass asked him
to withdraw. The result shows now
that had ho held o.i one more ballot
he could have ben nominated. A
number c.f personal friends would
have voted for Mr. MacMurphy on
the third ballot, and he had already
tnoujh to have prevented a nomina
tion on that ballot had ho not with
drawn rather ag dnst his better judg
ment. Of the light made on him
from Cass county when on the floor of
the Hojsc, we shall speak hereafter.
Of course wo arc late thi3 week:

of the convention, all comments on

bar we would have some chance in
the fall for notice of fairs, and pub

also changed the time of bnd sales

THE STATE CONVENTION.
Exciting1 Sessions Tuesday and Wednes
day Many Double Headers The
Fall Ticket Nominated Glo
The Republican State Convention
met in the Opera House, Lincoln, on
Tuesday to nominate a full state tick
et. There were about three hundred
delegates in town and many visitors,
and the hour3 preceding the opening
of the convention were occupied by
the crowds at the Commercial House
in discussing the merits of prospective
candidates and the peculiar features of
the situation. All agreed however in
one respect, namely, that the conven
tion would consume considerable time
in finishing its work.

W. Dawes, Chairman of the State Cen
tral Committee, called the meeting to
order. Judge M. L. Hay ward, of Otoe
county, was unanimously elected tem
porary chairman, C. F, Goodman, of
Douglas, temporary secretary, and Geo.
Brooks, of Knox county, assistant sec

from Douglas County. The chairman
stated that the committee had been di
rected to leave the whole matter to the
During the evening session a number
of contests and several Counties were
settled by the Convention, and the or
ganization of the body was made per
manent. In the contest of the Doug
las County factions Mr. Connell and
Mr. Thurston carried on the argument
and theresult was that after a bitter
debate the Thurston delegation was
admitted, receiving 1GD votes, while
the Lake wing had but 119 of the 279
votes cast. The Franklin county fight
followed, and finally the Valentine
voters were admitted. The Gosper
county feud was settled by the delega
tion themselves, and after an exciting
wrangle the Hays delegation were ad
mitted at 3 o'clock in the morning as
the real representatives of Madison
The following ballots were taken on

Prof. Thompson,' present incumb
ent, was nominated for Superintend

Gen. Dillworth was nominated for
F. M. Davis was nominated for
Land Commissioner by acclamation,
there being no other candidate.
The convention adjourned for
breakfast. After that the committee
on Platform reported, and a Central
Committee was appointed.
A disgraceful debate occurred
on the adoption of a resolution re
garding bridge tolls at Omaha, and
the convention was etill wrangling
when we left Thursday noon.
It is impossible to publish the
platform this week. It is a sound
money platform and on it we will win
the battle. XV. XV.
The Judicial District Convention
met at Nebraska city on the 23d, and
John C. Watson was nominated by ac
clamation. Mr. Watson is a young
Attorney of Otoe, who has won his
way by energy, industry and ability to
a high position at the bar, and will no
doubt make an excellent District At
torney if elected.
The ends of the Greenbackers who
are fiat money men, who believe that
the government can stamp leather,
wood, stone or paper, and ca:l it money,
could only be attained through revolu
tion. It is impossible, under the pres
ent constitution, for the government
to make, (not coin) money. With the
mere demagogue who only hunts an
office, and who only cares to create a
disturbance and dissatisfaction with
the party in power it is useless to ar
gue. He neither knows nor cares any
thing about the true principles of fi
nance, nor the facts in the case.
To the hone. t Greenbacker who is
deluded with this notion of irredeema
ble paper money and oceans of it we
say examine the facts and see when
and how you can gee what you think
you want suppose your theory is cor
rect, suppose fox the mere argument
that your fiat money was the money
we want and need, how will you get it
through the gr-enback party? The
Congress that meets this winter is not
a greenback congress, in your sense of
the terra. The congressmen you elect
this fall do not take their seats until a
year hence, and then the first practi
cable thing they could do, (provided it
was then a fiat money congress) would
be to submit an amendment of the
constitution to the people. This must
be ratified by two-thirds of the states,
which would consume another year al
most and does any one of sense sup
pose two-thirds of the states would
ratify any such amendment? This is
the only way under the forms of law
that such change could be made, the
only other way, as we have s.iid, is by
revolution, anarchy and confusion.
Long before this could be accom
plished the money question of this
country will have settled itself, and
the conservative forces of either old
party will have placed a sound, re
deemable uniform currency before the
There will be no finance question be
fore the people in '80 no greenback
question. It will be whether bam my
Tilden or some other democrat shall
be president provided the old Republi
can partv i3 not strong enough to elect.
That will be the issue.
'I he State Fair.
Our space is so limited this week
owirg to insertion of the delinquent
tax list that we have room for only a
few notes of the State Fair, of which
we should have been glad to give a
much fuller account. The weather for
the first day or two was rather unfa
vorable being somewhat cold and
windy, but it did nut deter people from
coming and the last two days being
pleasanter the crowd numbered from
5,000 to 6,000, and many were obliged
to be content with the most insufficient
acommodations or even none at all in
tlii way of lodging.
The display of farm and orchard pro
ducts was a sufficient advertisement of
Nebraska to satisfy the most incredu
lous and to further advertise our re
sources, the U. P. is having samples
of the finest specimens of fruits and
vegetables packed by Mr. J. T. Allen
and sent to the St. Louis fair and from
thpnee to the Chicago Exposition.
The statistics in regard to tree plant
ing in '77 and '78 would almost surpass
belief were they not vouched for. For
'77 the number of trees planted was
more than thirty and one quarter mil
lions and for '78 eighty-eiglit millions.
There were 64 acres of fruit trees in
'77 and 4000 acres in '78 exclusive of
firapes. Treeless prairies in Nebrska

; An Astouishing Fact.
A large proportion of the American
people are to-day dying from the ef
fects of Dyspepsia or disordered liver.
The' result of tliTse diseases upon the
masses of intelligent and valuable peo
ple is moat alarming, making life ac
tually a burden instead of a pleasant
existence of enjoyment and usefulness
as it ought to be. There, is no good
reason for this, if you will only throw
aside prejudice and skepticism, take
the advice of Druggists and your
friends, and try one bottle "of Green's
August Flowei. Your speedy relief
is certain. Millions of bottles of this
medicine have been given away to try
its virtues, with satisfactory results in
every case. You can buy a sample
bottle for 10 cents to try. Three doses
will relieve the worst case. Positively

tennial rat poison, received last Mon
day. We have given three doses. On
Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday
nights, and we verily believe there is
not a rat or mouse left. The saw mill,
feed, custom and merchant's mills were
full of them, as were also our houses,
cooper shops, barns and hog pens.
Sii ce giving them the poison they have
been running round as "crazy as loons"
and the liver bank is line with dead
rats, in fact it has created a terrible
commotion among Hiem and they have
all left, thanks to tho "Centennial Rat
Exterminator." each box of which is
worth a twenty dollar bill. We will
see our druggists and have them send
for it. Thanks, thanks. Very respect
fully. E. M. Britts. & Co.
