.Rousing Speeches by Hon.
R. C. Noleman and
Judge Greene.
Hon. W. L. Green, of Kearney,
the candidate of the People's
Indopondent party for congress
in this district, spoke to tho
people of Homingford and vi
cinity at tho court house Thurs
day afternoon. Tho hall had
been provided with extra seats
to accommodate the large crowd
which it was known was sure to
come to hear Mr. Greene but
soon after tho arrival of tho
.speaker the seats were all filled
and many were compelled to
stand in tho aisles and around the
door. Tho meeting was opened
with prayer by Rev. Wornom
which was followed by addresses
from J. M. Elingsworth of
Gothenburg and Mr. Mathow of
Loup City. Mr. Green then took
the floor and spoke for .over two
hours. He took up in detail all
the gold bug arguments and
showed the fallacy of each to the
entire satisfaction of tho whole
audience. It is safe to say that
nine tenths of tho voters who
heard Mr, Greene speak will
support him in the coming elec
tion. On petition of ono hundred and
forty voters of Hemingford, and
vicinity a meeting was t called ut
the court house last Saturday for
the purpose of organizing a Bryan
club. When tho time arrived for
the commencement of business the
hall was well filled and G. Mahon
oy, and old-time democrat uud an
ardent advocate of tho free coinage
of silver and supporter of W. J.
Bryan for President, was chosen
R. C. Noleman, of Alliauco, a
life long" republican was then pre
sented as the speaker of tho day.
Mr. Noleman hold the attontion of
tho audience during tho whole of
his address, which lasted for an
houi and twenty minutes. He
made a strong argument in favor
of tho financial policy advocated
by the democrats and populists
which appealed earnestly to all
good citizens who believe in the
advancement of tho interests of tho
farmers and laborers to vote and
work for the election of W.J.
Mr. G M. Sullivan was then
called for and responded by a
short speech which was enthusias
tically received.
A Bryan club wtj then organ
ized consisting of 140 voters of
Homingford and vicinity. Anton
Uhrig was elected president of tho
club, Sam Switzer, secretary; J.
M. Trout, vice-president and 0.
A. Burlaw, EH Gerber and Clark
Olds wore chosen as an executive
Judge Hamor was approached
by a Herald reporter yesterday
and asked for his views on tho
financial issue. Ho says:
"I am favorable to silver, as I
think a great many republicans
are, but J have not loft tho re
publican party but expect to re
main in it and continue the silver
light; while I am not insisting
on tho ratio of 10 to 1, I do not
anticipate any great danger from
it. Silver is ono of the resources
of tho country and wo should not
cut it off."
The Judgohas advocated silver
in his speeches throughout tho
state for .sovoral years past but
ho is not devoting much time to
politics as ho is a hardworking
lawyer and has a very largo
practice which demands all of
his attontion. However, the
Judgo has a large number of
friends in this county who aro
glad to know that ho is in touch
Willi the common people.
