he was moro than ever convinced that
a better selection that Mr. Poynter
could not have been made, and that
there never was and never will be a

and a more perfect understanding of
the Importance of the campaign. The
visiting stockmen to South Omaha in

for W. A. Poynter. They all seem to
know him, and although some do not
adhere to his party principles they can
think of nothing to say against htm.

served sixteen years In the regular arm,

which ho gradually worked his way

some regiments have misbehaved, no

behavior is second to none, and that
in camp, as well as In Chattanooga, the
Nebraska boys are always welcome.
He further says that In the case of the
Nebraska boys their gentlemanly be

Lincoln, Neb., Aug. 10. If a quiet
meeting and comparison of views were
held tonight by Judge Den S. Baker,
John L. Webster, W. F. Gurlcy, A. 12.
Barnes, R. P. High, W. P McCreary
and a few others it is safe to say that
they would be unanimous on one point,
and that point of common agreement
would be that the republican machine
Is a powerful engine when used as an
extinguisher Each of these and there
aro others has had an experience.
The convention that was held today
had scarcely more vim about It than
that of a year ago, and the most cur
sory glance showed the absence of that
old-time enthusiasm which used to dis
tinguish republican conventions. Hay
ward had the thing In his hands from
the beginning, and all of Baker's buck
ing had no effect on the other candi
dates' lines. When the time came the
convention managers made then
strength apparent and the little opposi
tion crowd was not left with breath
enough to "holler" when they were hit.
GURLEY HEADED OFF.
The convention In the first place gen
tly but firmly refused -to allow any
nominating speeches until after Baker
was disposed of and all danger from
W. F. Gurley's batteries was past. As
a result the operation of chloroforming
tho obstreperous clement was perform
ed In dead silence except as It was In
terrupted by tho slew calling of the
roll of counties by Frank Wilson and
tho responses of the county chairmen.
Baker was not tho only man In the
Douglas delegation who felt the hand
of the suppression machine. All night
long J. L. Webster had labored with
the powers to Induce them to agree to
his set of resolutions, in which his well
known Ideas about extension of terri
tory were crystallized In his best style.
Tho edict had gocn forth that Webster
and his policy were not the proper
thing. Brad Slaughter got In his mo
tion and slipped the list of names Into
the hands of tho temporary chairman
and the thing was done. Webster was
not only left off the committee on reso
lutions, but the committee was fixed
bo tight that ho could not even get a
minority report before tho convention.
The attempt was made, but the appeal
was made to him not to let the public
see all the dirty linen in the wash and
he was forced to yield.
JRWALLOW WITHOUT TA'STINO.
Nothing of tho policy of the party or
of tha declarations of principles In tho
platform were dlscoursred in the con
vention. It was fixed up In the meas
ure suitable to the party and the con
vention took it when told It would
make them well. It was very bad to
the tasto of some and even before
strangers they could not all keep from
showing how hard it was to swallow.
The convention was unlucky In Its
officers, or some of them, and the
dreary speech of Temporary Chairman
Conklln put them all in bad humor at
the outset. When Judge Hayward
came In to express his appreciation ot
the honor the enthusiasm was not in
creased by his singular method of do
ing it, as when he said, "If any mistake
Is made it is you and not I who must
bear the responsibility," cold chills ran
over tho backs of the nervous dele
gates, who looked as If they were won
dering how big a mistake they were
making. Then A. E. Cody, the man
who had been chased around by those
having the nomination for treasurer in
their possession, brought on his cold
douche and completed the work of
freezing tho last atom of enthusiasm
out of the delegates.
It was when Brad D. Slaughter read
his resolutions. One ot these resolu
tions declared that the convention re
affirmed the declaration of principles
enunciated in the St. Louis platform.
Then in a distinct sentence It declared
for "the present gold standard."
CADY THINKS IT STRANGE.
Cady suggested that there was an
Incongruity there, as the St. Louis
platform had declared for bimetallism
if an international agreement could be
obtained, and had further pledged the
party to obtain that agreement if pos
sible. That the party was committed
to the declaration that bimetallism was
a good thing if Europe Joined in with
The convention sat in silence while
Cady talked, and even Brad Slaughter
could not defend his peculiar platform
except to say it was a close copy of
the Oregon resolutions. It all went,
Just as every other thing pushed at the
convention by the managers, and no
voice of protest except Cady's was
raised. Brad Slaughter had a pretty
firm rein on the convention and drove
How It All Happened.
Lincoln, Neb. Special The delegates
were slow in getting to the place of
meeting, and It was half an hour past
the time, 10 o'clock, when Chairman D.
H. Mercer called the republican con
vention to order In the Oliver theater
mXm)jm-?V)t .? rffltft'i
Chairman Mercer spoko in a hopeful
strain and sought to cheer the hearts
of the delegates by predicting success
In tho campaign. He attributed the
disaster to the republican party last
year to he few guilty ones who had be
trayed the trust Imposed in them. One
feeble handclap greeted this denunci
ation of guilty republicans. The state
ment that the ropubllcan criminals
woro punished by republican courts
gained more applause. He appealed to
all republicans to stay In tho party
and make It better and help to gain a
victory which would gladden the heart
of tho greatest president that ever sat
In tho White house.
A motion to make tho temporary or
ganization permanent was made by H.
C. Russell, but this did not meet with
favor, and a motion by S. A. Scarlo that
Senator John M. Thurston bo mado
permanent chairman went with a
Tho list of delegates as handed to tho
secretary was made the list of dele
gates of tho convention. Brad D.
Slaughter Jumped In and moved that a
committee on resolutions be appointed
by tho chair, and this was adopted.
Tho chair appointed Brad Slaughter
of Lancaster, E. Roscwatcr of Douglas
and -A. M. Post of Columbu3 at large,
the others being Kennedy of Douglas,
McPheelcy of Kearney, Weston of
Gage, Penny of Lincoln, Richards ot
Dodge and Tcfft of Cass.
BOODLE ALREADY SCENTED.
The one candidate who roused the
delegates to lustiest shouts was Mur
phy, and the part of his speech that
woke them was his declaration that
"the commander-in-chief of the army
and navy was also the commander-in-chief
of the Nebraska republicans," and
he would have charge ot tho coming
campaign. The picture was dazzling
and the awakened imaginations of the
workers saw another campaign "man
aged" from Washington and tho big
wads of campaign money dumped Into
the state of Nebraska. Then they did
Senator Allen looked on at the per
formance for a few minutes from a
NOMINATIONS FOR GOVERNOR.
At the call of Madison county Judge
B. S. Banker was recognized and said:
"It Is evident that the party Is sat
isfied I can be mere useful on the
bench than as governor, and I ask that
the nomination be made unanimous."
Senator Thurston Introduced Judgo
Hayward as the next governor.
HIMSELF NOT RESPONSIBLE.
He said he was determined in tho
outset that if nominated for this or any
other office It would not be of his seek
ing. "It Is your work. If a mistake
Is mado It Is yours, not mine."
Judge Hayward said he was sorry
he could not nominate Judge Baker
for the same or some other "fat" ofllce.
He said the party stood on the St.
Louis platform, which was the same
now as then. He predicted success.
Tho balance of the entire slate was
nominated without a hitch and the
republican machine is working Its
wheels greased with eastern grease.
Before the result was announced
Brad D. Slaughter, chairman of the
commlttcacn resolutions, presented tho
report of the committee. Tha report
was adopted, though A. E. Cady called
attention to the apparent inconsistency
of tho currency plank. Slaughter said
it might not bo entirely consistent, but
It was almost an exact copy of the Ore

Tho Difference Between Republican Rnlo and tho "Domo-rop"

Work Begun When tho Ituscnls Were Turned Out.
Lincoln, Aug. 15. Many millions of
dollars In state taxes have been col
lected from the people of Nebraska
during her thirty-two years of state
hood. Much of this money has un
doubtedly been well spent, and no pat
riotic citizen begrudges the portion he
contributed toward good government;
but, on the other hand, every taxpayer
has a right to know that his contri
bution to the common fund has been
expended Judiciously and economically,
and no good citizen can countenance
gross mismanagement, wilful extrava
gance and downright dishonesty In the
expenditure of public money.
Part ot these millions has not been
well spent. Just how much, no man
can tell; for In the very nature of things
losses or gains cannot be computed
after the fashion of the merchant. Ab
Btractly, every dollar paid out for state
government is a loss; but when proper
ly expended, every dime of public mon
ey brings dollars of good to the citi
zens. What constitutes proper and Ju
dicious expenditure is, of course, a
question upon which good citizens may
honestly differ; but it will be conceded
that, in the transaction of state busi
ness, nothing less than the same watch
ful care one would give to his own
private affairs can be considered good
No one denies that the state should
provide means for taking care of the
insane, the incorrigible, the feeble
minded, the destitute, and the criminal.
Society demands, for its own good and
safety, that such be done, and It would
be useless to dwell further upon the
sociological phase of the question. But
who Is to say what is the necessary
cost of maintaining these wards of the
state? Who knows to a certainty what
it should cost to maintain a convict at
the penitentiary or an Insane person at
the asylum? We can say nothing by
way of answer, except to show what
it has cost in the past There is no
constitutional provision which reads
that the cost of maintaining a felon
at Lancaster shall not exceed CO cents
per day; neither does the law state
that an average cost ot 20.3 cents per
day shall be the maximum; so the re
publican party in 1878 paid 60 cents,
and in 1S94 paid 41 cents, for what the
populist party today gets at a cost of
a trifle more than 20 cents.
Let no man, however, fall into the
error that the cheapest method of car
ing for the state's unfortunate wards
is always the best. Nothing less than
the best of care, at the least possible
cost consistent therewith, should be
satisfactory to our citizens. With this
idea always In mind, I may say that a
comparison of records la the only way
to Judge which political party has
suown itself entitled to tne people's
confidence; which has been incapable,
extravagant and dishonest; and which
has proven Itself to be capable, eco
nomical and honest. The records aro
the best evidence.
It is Incontestable that the discipline
in all state institutions was never bet
ter than today; that the state's unfor
tunate wardB are better fed, better
clad, and in better health than ever
before; that the utmost neatness and
cleanliness Is everywhere apparent at
each institution; and that all officers
and employes are more courteous and
obliging to all visitors than they were
in the days of republican administra
tion. So much for this phase of our
From January 1, 1892, to May 31, 1898,
a period of 2,343 days, the total cost
to the taxpayers of Nebraska for main
taining all state charitable and penal
institutions was the sum of $2,648,910.39.
The average nurober of Inmates in
these institutions during this period
was 2,338, thus showing an average per
capita cost of $1,132.98 for the period, or,
practically, 48 1-3 cents per day for
each inmate. The average daily ex
penditure for maintenance, it will be
observed, was $1,130.13.

Dividing the total cost for three years
by the number of days, shows the daily
cos to have been $1,183.93; and this di
vided by the number of inmates (2,142)
will show a dally cost of nearly 55 1-3
cents per Inmate. This, however, was
before the days of a reform adminis
tration. The table below, covering the time
from January 1, 1895, to November 30,
1896, is hardly fair to the fusion ad
ministration, Inasmuch as it throws
about three months of partial repub
lican control into the period next fol
lowing, but as the fiscal year was
changed in 1896 to end each year there
after on November 30, 1 have taken the
figures as shown by reports on file.

ernor Holcomb and his appointees were

per diem. Or, looking at it in another
light, a total cost of $164.09 less each
day for supporting 295 more Inmates
than the republicans were able to do.
The difference between .republican
ways of mismanaging institutions and'
populist economy might be figured out
by some republican statistician as onlv
13 cents per day in the care and
maintenance of each Inmate of a pub
lic, charitable or penal institution, and
he might hold up with ridicule that 13
cents and with withering sarcasm point
to the stinginess and littleness of popu
lists. But hold on, my friend; do you
know how much that 13 cents means
for the period we have been investigat
ing? It means exactly $739,517.90. It
means that the taxpayers of Nebraska
would have paid out uselessly nearly
$740,000 for republican extravagance
and theft In a little less than bIx and a
half years, if they had not Bhown their
good sense in 1896 by making a com
plete change in political servants. It
means that the taxpayers did lose by
republican mismanagement $316,930.331
during the years 1S92, 1893 and 1894.
And It further means that the mag
nificent sum of $369,165.69 has been sav
ed to the taxpayers of Nebraska in tho
one item alone of maintaining penal
and charitable institutions, by Gov
ernor Holcomb and his fellow executive
officers and their appointees.
Taxpayers, where will your rcte be
counted In November?

governor and his brave old adjutant,
whose honorable sears and empty sleeve
are eloquent testimonials to his bravery
and gallant services.
As peal upon peal of applause fell
from the lips of the boys in blue the
distinguished visitors dismounted. Their
escorts, lining up, were photographed
and marched away. The governor and
General Barry fell In line like true sol

cials went away and unheralded drop
ped into the division hospital, where
they passed from ward to ward looking
up the suffering Nebraska boys, and in
quired thoroughly into the various com
plaints which have from time to time
been made against that portion of the
army. Finding none of the Second dan
gerously sick and the surgeons making
the best endeavor with limited force
and thoroughly aroused to their duty
by the number of complaints, they did
not telegraph their deliberate criticisms,
which will be written to Judge Stark,
state military representative at Wash
ington. Remounting, they rode back and re
joined Colonel Olson and came on to the
regimental parade grounds at the time
when it was arranged that a regimental
dress parade should be given. The reg
iment was then presented and passed
in review In columns of platoons, which
gave them an opportunity to remark
the wonderful Improvement which has
taken place while the regiment has
been converted Into soldiers.

A POYNTER STORY.
William A. Poynter, the fusion nom-1

Christian church, and Is one of the best
known colleges In the central west
There are a number of Eureka grad
uates !n Nebraska, Missouri, Iowa and
Kansas, and all of them will be glad
to hear of the honor paid to their alma
mater by the fusion forces of Nebraska.
Tho students who attended Eureka
abcr.t the time that Mr. Poynter was a
student there and dancing .attendance
on tho eld bell as it answered the com
mand of Janitor Jones, will remember
Aunt Sal'y, who lived near ths Chris
tian church and kept boarders. Every
student at Eureka college between 1S50
and 1873 knew and loved Aunt Sally,
nr.'i many of them loved some of Aunt
Aunt Sally's boarding houso was
filled with about as Jolly a lot ol yrung
folk ns ever attended school, and Will
iam A. Poynter could, if he would tako
time, Rll some funny stories ot that
crowd. He, with a hundred of others,
will remrmber Aunt Sally's clock.
That clock was an old-fashioned af
fair, long rendulum, weights and cords,
and when It was wound it made a nolso
like a thrtshlng machine. That ctoclc
was wound promptly at 10 o'clock every
night, and when it was wodU'l thins
would be ar exodus from the parlcr?,
the front porch and the la.wn. . Aunt
Sally's girl bcarders knew that nt the
first count! of that clock belnr wound
It was t'.mo to bid their sweethearts
good night for Aunt Sally, wlt'a cld
fashloned cottons of propriety, and
with a J.etn sense of the obligation laid
upon her by tho parents of the girls,
insisted that 10 o'clock was lata enough
fir any loving swain to remain. That
notice was never allowed to go un
heeded but once. A young fellov came
down from Peoria to attend collego
and in time formed the acquaintance
of seveial of Aunt Sally's girls. Ho
was inclined to presume upon his city
breeding and one Sunday evening he
called upon ond of Aunt Sally'3 girls.
Whtn Ifl o'clock came the gin heard
the clock winding and told her callerl
that Aurl Sally did not allow gentle
men ca'.'trs to remain after 10. The
Pecrla twcll opined that Aunt Sally
was not his boss, and that ha would
remain until 11. The girl tried to per
suade him to leave, but he was ob
durate. He was bound to show Aunt
Sally who he was.
Finally the girl said she wsuid have
to leave him alone, and she dturted for
the deer. Just as she reached it Aunt
Sally vwi'.ked in.
"You run on to your room, Sue," paid
Aunt Sally; "I want to talk to this
Sue escaped from the room anl left
