- It takes 379 votes to nominate ; Don
Cameron gives Grant 416; the N. Y.
Herald gives Grant 24 majority now.
The N. Y. Times says his nomination
ia certain, and Gov. Palmer, of Illinois,
himself a candidate on the democratic
side, says Grant will be nominated ou
an understanding with some Southern
states, and will be a hard man to beat.
Unless for some reason Grant de
clines, it would seem that he must be
the nominee of the Convention next
week. Chamberlain, of Maine, has
been spoken of as Vice President, and
woald be an excellent nomination; but
later John Sherman seems to be the
favorite, if he will accept the second
place. Grant and Sherman would make
a strong team.
The Herald evidently fears that if
we should promote Postmaster Mar
shal to a Colonelcy, it might interfere
with it's editor's chances as his succes
sor, it case of Grant's election. Cour
ant. Just see how quick these democrats
smell an office t Here we've been eight
or nine years, signed the papers for
Cap. Marshall's reappointment twice,
and never thought ef supplanting him,
when our. new democratic friend of
only a few months has evidently been
on the alert to see how the land lies if
Mr. Tilden but, pshaw ! Tilden '11
never see the White House, anyway.
It's labor thrown away, Bro. Crites. .
When Governor Nance met the
workingmen at Omaha, he said he
wanted to hear them state their case
fully, frankly and without reserve, and
he would listen to any bona fide work
ingman's statement; but he did not
want to hear and would net listen to
any shyster lawyer, political bummer
or professional agitator. A square
statement was made by working mn,
and through the aid and counsel of the
Governor, Adjutant General and oth
ers a peaceable compromise was effcet
ed, and Woodshed and d-t rue ion f
property avoided. So much far firm
ness and good seiise, and the Governor
deserves all the praise he is ge:tiu,
no matter toha called the troops oat.
One ef the most singular things in
this Campaign has been that both in
this state and elsewhere the friends
of Gen. Grant supported him quietly,
earnestly without detraction or vitu
peration ef other candidates, while the
anti-Grant men have used the stale
slanders of Democrats as , arguments
against other candidates, and their
constant threat has been that their
side won't vote for Grant if nomina
ted. Which looks most like Republi
canism and patriotism?
The Republican State Convention
was a lively one and no mistake.
Small as the Grant men appeared in
numbers they managed thei: case with
consummate ability. Under the lead of
Laird and Majors, principally, they
kept the Blaine men wide awake the
whole night and made 'em mighty
"narvou" at times. There seems to
be no doubt but that if they could
have carried the amended motion to
vote by ballet, by districts, they would
have got a delegate or two to Chicago,
in spite of the boasted Blaine majori
ty. It is said our "bey Governor,'
brave as be is on strikes, "trembled"
for the result of the count the second
time; and Jimmy Dawes acknowledg
ed to this Editor that be got up and
down those aisles twice, in the short
est time he ever went through a con
vention, in order to stiffen the spinal
column of Blaine delegations.
In the Grant caucus lS.anti-Blaine
votes answered to roll-call we kept
the tally ourself.
Many think there was a miscount
on the final vote of the resolution, as
amended, to vote by ballot by dis
tricts, and that the chairman took the
count of the Editor ef this paper, and
that it was incorrect. We give below
the figures just as we put them down
at the time and as near correct as the
confusion would allow :

(The single votes after the nines
were changes, as we understood them.
It is barely possible that in the
noise some county was called wrong
but the footings of Mr. Cady and our
self were both alike and we both went
ever them before they were handed to
Mr. Collins. The real trouble was the
first vote on the amendment was too
large, a mistake being made there.
Pawnee 8 votes "no," being put down as
4 and one other eounty of 5 or 9 votes
put down as "aye" when it should have
been "no."
The Grant men then crowed so lus
tily tbey overdid the business and
scared the Blaine men, who might
have been willing to break the slate a
little, but were not yet prepared to see
the whole programme changed by their
votes. No wonder then that some
votes returned to their first love on the
second count. No secretaries could
hear in the din. the vote should have
been called slower and verified. We
looked to see Laird or Gere call for a
The Omaha Strikes Trouble.
What promised to be a serious riet
occurred in Omaha on Friday last.
There has been a "strike" at the Smelt
ing Works there far seme weeks, and
on Friday the company owning the
worKS, ran in some negroes from Kan
sas to take the place of the strikers.
Some of the negroes were armed. The
working men of Omaha at once rallied
and demanded that the negroes be sent
back. The company becoming scared,
telegraphed Gov. Nance fer -troops,"
stating that a riot was imminent. The
Governor and Secretary of State Alex
ander, fearing that disorder might fol
low, did order the militia company
from Wahoo, and one company from
Columbus, which promptly appeared
upon the ground.
The working men and the Governor
held a conference. Thev stated their
case plainly, and the Governor re
sponded as plainly and as frankly, by
saying that he would protect the rights
of all parties, and preserve peace at all
hazards. The smelting men had a right
to strike, but no right to prevent ether
workmen from laboring even at less
rates if they saw fit.
In the meanwhile the strikers had
induced the colored men to leave the
works, on promise of paying their fare
back to Kansas, and after another con
ference between the State authorities
and the laborers a compromise was ef
fected, and on Sunday all was peace,
as it should be. Monday morning the
great Smelting Works were opened
again ; the troops and officers of State
returned home, and quiet reigns on the
banks of the Old Muddy, near the rip

A Big Convention, &., Ac, c.
(From too Omaha Bee.)
Columbus, May 20. The republican
state convention, which closed its la
bors at 5 o'clock, Thursday morning,
after an all-night's session, was by all
odds the most imposing political as
semblage ever held in Nebraska. 'It
excelled all previous conventions of
all parties, not only ia point of num
bers, but in the array of brilliant fo
rensic talent, and the superior intelli
gence of the entire body. The contest
between followers of Grant and Blaine
was spirited throughout, and at times
quite exciting. The Grant minority
was compact, well organized and han
dled with admirable tact by veteran
leaders.' The Blaine men, relying on
their superiority of numbers, were not
as well disciplined, and made some
mistakes. The turning point of the
ontest was the defeat by a very close
vote of the attempt of the Grant lead
ers to procure a vote by ballot instead
of viva voce by counties, which com
pelled every man to show his colors.
The entire proceedings were charac
terized by remarkable good feeling and
a disposition to avoid personalities.
- On Wednesday evening, after sun
down, the Columbus Opera House, a
large wooden structure, with audito
rium on the ground floor, and a seating
capacity of about 400, including the
stage, presented an animated scene.
The stage had been draped with na
tional colors, and the floor had been
divided among the respeetive counties
by standards designating each delega
tion. Admission to the hall was by
ticket, each delegate being assigned to
a particular seat numbered on his card.
By 8 o'clock, when every delegate was
in his seat, the convention was called
to order by Hon. James W. Dawes,
chairman of the state committee.
The following gentlemen were ap
pointed a committee on permanont or
ganization: Tefft of Cass. Caldwell of
Nuckolls, Calkins ef Buffalo, Brown
of Douglas, and Wilson f Johnson. .
The convention passed res
olutions expressing preference for Mr.
Blaine, but no other instructions. The
majority for Blurine over Grant on each
ballot avei aged one hundred.
The following are the delegates and
alternates, with their vote:

Honors were easy between Nemaha
and Otoe on the announcement of the
vote. Col. Majors said: "Nemaha, nine
votes for the nominee of the Chicago
convention U. S. Grant." Following,
Col. Mitchell responded: "Otoe casts
eleven votes for the next president of
the United States James G. Blaii.e."
When Red Willow Co. was called the
chairman announced: "two votes for
J. G. Blaine all we've got."
Mr. James Laird, "to the end that
the triumph of James G. Blaine may
bo complete," moved to make the vote
unanimous, adding, "but we hereby
express the hope that, while you have
buried U. S. Grant by your ballots, he
may be resurrected on the third day
of June."
There was no report from the com
mittee en resolutions. Immediately af
ter the election of delegates, Steele, of
Butler, offered the following, which
was unanimously adopted:
Resolved, That it is the sense of this
republican convention, that the repub
licans of the state of Nebraska shall
suppurt the nominee of the Chicago
Mr. Kennard, of Lancaster, offered
the following, which was laid ou the

here to-day are instructed not to vote

True Merit Wins.
As an illustration of what can be
accomplished by dint of perseverance
and hard work, and the reward which
generally follows, we are led to call
the attention of our young renders,
every boy and young man just start
in life, to the promotion of T. J. Pot
ter to the position of Assistant-General
Manager of the C. B. Jfc Q. R. R.
as affording a bit of history that will
prove gooareading for them all.
Mr. Potter's career shows what en
ergy, industry and fidelity can do, and
is without precedent in the annals of
railroading. Only a few years ago he
was axman on the Burlington & Mis
souri River railroad, in July, 1462.
In the early part of 1863 ho was fire
man, but soon resigned and entered
the army as private in company A.,
seventh Iowa cavalry, and made a
good soldier. He left the army in
June, 1866, having been promoted suc
cessively from private to captain. In
July, 1866, he went to work for J. M.
Fish, a commission merchant of Ed
dyvillc. In 1867 he was appointed
station agent at Albia, and in July,
1869, was made chief clerk in the road
master's department, and fuel agent.
Ia 1870, in addition to the position of
fuel agent he was made agent for the
settlement of stock and personal in-
Sry claims, which place he held until
arch 1873, wheu he was appointed
general agent of the western Iowa di
vision with headquarters at Creston.
In February 1875, ho was made super
intendent of the Iowa division with
headquarters at Burlington. In June
1878, he was made general superinten
dent of the C. B. A Q. It. 11. with
headquarters at Burlington, ono of the
most arduous and responsible posi
tions In tho company's service. Mr.
Potter handled its duties with such
rare skill and taste that the company
determined to avail itself of his happy
combination of executive faculties, and
the tact which so quickly adapts it
self to the comprehensive, widely var
ied aud com plicated business of an or
ganization operating over two thousand
miles of railroad, and called him to
still greater responsibilities. And at
39 years of ago we find the hard work
ing boy of 1862, at the head of one of
the greatest corporations of the north
west. Boys, truo merit always win,
and you should keep it in mind.

A motion by Senator Logan prevail
ed that the committee, if not prepared
to report in full, send in the delegates
from uncontested counties.
An adjournment until 8 o'clock fol
lowed. At this hour the chairman ef
the committee on credentials submit
ted the names of delegates from all
counties, except Cook and Greene. His
report was adopted.
Then an adjournment was had until
morning at 9 o'clock.
Springeield, May 20. The conven
tion assembled at 9.
Mr. Robbins. of Quiucy, offered a res
olution that the committee on creden
tials ignore the papers of all the Co.
conventions which were held at other
than the appointed places, meaning
thereby to cut out the Pa!mer House
men. A test vote on this resulted 349
noes, 249 ayes.
The convention then took a recess
till 11, to await the action of the com
mittee on credentials.
Springfield, May 20. The delay of
the committee on credentials is not an
unmixed evil on either side. By it the
anti-Grant men are able to prevent
their opponents from announcing their
defeat, so as to have an effect upon the
Nebraska convention, which was held
last night, and the Alabama conven
tion, in session to-day. Had the Illinois
convention taken decisive steps yester
day, and the result been telegraphed to
Nebraska, much good to the Grant
cause would undoubtedly have result
ed. This the Blame men have saved
by the delay. It is also likely that the
delay has been used by some of the
shrewder anti-Grant managers, for the
purpose of negotiations with the com
mittee on credentials. The committee
stood at the time of its appointment
ten to eight in favor of Grant.
Among the anti-Grant minority up
on the committee are Gen. Hurlbut and
Maj. Beardsley, of Rock Island, two as
shrewd politicians as can be found in
Illinois, and men who will scruple at
nothing. It would surprise no one to
learn that they had arranged matters
in their peculiar fashion, so as to gain
a majority report for tho Farwell Hall
delegation. It is not improbable either
that, they may hope, by the delay, to
tire out the Grant men in the conven
tion. .
All of these considerations, howev
er, will probably be overbalanced by
the gain which is accruing to the pro
Grant faction by the delay. Three
thousand men are here awaiting the
result, 600 of them being delegates.
All of these persons are paying their
own expenses, and each hour's delav
increases their impatience. The Grant
managers feel that tho thing bodes
them no ill, so long as the impatience
continues to grow; for when the time
for action., does arrive the convention
will be ready to use prompt and vigor
ous measures.
It is reasonably certain that during
the delay ; forty-one of the Palmer
House delegates will be admitted as
delegates. --Whether the Farwell Hall
men will bolt or not is a matter of ut
ter indifference. A committee of lead
ing Grant men, representing each con
gressional district, will probably be
appointed by the chair to nominate 42
delegates to the Chicago convention.
Springfield, May 20. -At 2:30 the
convention is in session, awaiting the
report of the committee on credentials.
- Various rumors are current. One is
to the effect that the committee will
return the subject of the Cook County
contest to the convention without rec
ommendation. Another is that the Palmer House
men will have a majority, and the Far
well Hall men a minority report. -
Springfield,- May 20, 4:10 p. m.
The committee on credentials stand 9
to 9 They report, ignoring both the
Farwell Hall and Palmer House con
ventions as irregular, but stating that
the Grant men were entitled to 36 del
egates ab initio, and the Blaine-Washburne
men to 56. They leave the gen
eral convention to determine the case.
At last, after many pros and cons, a
committee of 19 (one from each dis
trict) was appointed to select dele
gates, and on Friday forenoon tltey i e
ported 43 straight Grant delegates to
the National convention at Chicago.
We give those at large as a sample of
the men; the others were appointed by
Mr. M. M. Ford, of Henry . County,
from the committee appointed to se
lect delegates, then came down the
center aisle and announced that the
report of the committee was ready,
and it was handed in and read as fol

American Losses by Fire.
SeientiOe American. . .
The amount of loses in (he United
States by fire during 1879, as reported
to Insurance companies, was $77,703,
700; add to this the uninsured losses
that are not reported, and it will fall
but little short of $100,000,000 claimed
as the loss in this couutry. -Canada
is not included in these reports.
In the four years, 1875-6-7 and 8,
there were burned whollv or in part,
in the U. 8.: 1,354 hotols,263 churches,
182 school houses, 40 court houses, 42
almshouses, hospitals and asvliinis
1,883 in all. It would naturally be
supposed that buildings of the char
acter named would bo built with more
than ordinary care, but the record does
not show such to be the case. Indeed,
tho more pretentious the building, the
more careless seem to be tho owners.

Intemperance is the scourge of the
world. There is no evil written in
the long catalogue of moral and politi
cal woes attended with mere harm to
individuals or to society than inebria

are the offspring of intemperance.
To substantiate this no elaborate ar
gument is necessary, for the records of

the solitary prison wall, written by the
pen of time and the ink of tears and
the paupers grave, are all proofs in
support of the allegation. O inebra

But it would be more tolerable if the
evils resulting from this pernicious
habit were confined to the drunkard
himself. Yet it is not so! fer the love

a tearful eye; his dear children retreat
from corner to corner, as if an evil

The little homestead becomes the
theatre of family broils and angry

An Earnest Appeal.
Men and brethren, strong men it is
true perhaps, of you that your charac
ters are formed aud your habits are
made, your physical system is consoli
dated, so to speak: your heads are
strong, and you can say to yourselves
with perfect truth, and yon sometimes
do say to others, "I can take this thing
or leave it, I can do with it or with
out it." Then, my brethren.if you can
do with it or without it, your minds
and tastes are in this state of equili
brium in relation to it. do without it
for the sake of those who are in dan
ger through the means of it. Fathers!
do without it for the sake of your
young sons, .if for no other reason.
How can you tell but that their youth
ful steps may trip to that destruction
on this side of which your slower feet
have been able to halt. Think of
