and two young women were pleasure
riding in a boat, near what Is known
as the Ludwkdc saw mill. Tho river Is

in un eddy, struck a snug, which tipped
it so that it partially filled with water.
Ono of the girls grabbed oue of tho
men around tho neck in her fright.
Tho young man wa an excellent
swimmer, and, evidently thinking the
boat was going to sink and that ho
could swim ashore with the girl, jump
ed overboard with her. In jumping
they overturned the boat, throwing
.their companions into the water and
all were drowned. The first couple
were never seen after they sank.

bo presented, Colorado votes will go
to him, but the Colorado delegation
will present no candidate.
Last week it wa planned to Bond a
largo and influential delegation ot
Colorado citizens, without regard to
party affiliations, to work for the

Tho republicans of Nebraska in con

in the principles enunciated In tho
platform adopted by tho nntidnol con
vention at St. Louis; tho platform of a
party not ashamed of its record and
compelled to abandon no article of its
Chief among theso standard princi
ples is a protective tariff, that cares
for every American interest and secures
the highest good for American labor; a
reciprocity that, while seeking out tho
world's markets for our surplus pro
ducts, will never yield up a single day's
wage that belongs to the American
workman; a sound dollar, as bound as
the government, und as untarnished as
its flag; a dollar that is good not only
at home, but good wherever trade
goes as good in tho hands of a farmer
or a workman as in the hands of a
capitalist, a manufacturer or a corpora
tion. A foreign policy that respects the
American flag and causes it to be hon
ored abroad; thut embodies the sym
pathy of the American people in tho
(struggle of their oppressed neighbors
for liberty and self-government nnd
that jealously resents nny and all encroachments-
of tho military powers of
the old world upon the territory of any
A domestic policy that accords fair
treatment and generous recognition to
the veterans of the union array, that
gives them preference, wherever prac
ticable, in public employment; that
suffers no union soldier, his widow or
orphan, to be deprived of a pension,
regularly granted, without due notice
and an investigation as thorough and
impartial as that upon the faith of
which tho pension was originally con
ferred. That provides a revenue sufficient
for current expenses and tho mainten
ance of tho public credit; that allows
no excuse for increasing the national
debt in times of peuce, and that re
stores our merchant marine.
The republicans of Nebraska most
heartily endorse tho nomination of
their first choice, William McKinley of
Ohio for president and Garrett A. Ho
bart of New Jersey for vice president,
and pledge them their enthusiastic and
They favor state legislation, with
proper restrictions, for the snfety and
protection of the people, under which
mutual insurance companies may bo

should not be repealed or modified in
