fll to do farmer , murder d hm
wife who was niuk in bed Sunday
night , by cutting her throutlit ; with
razor and in Ices than an hour
tterwerds wont to the graveyard
and out hie own throat and shot
himself. After he had killed hia
wife he went to Robertsons a near
neighbor und requested him to go
over to his house as his wife was
very sick and instructed to have
another man go after the Doctor.
Robertson and wife immod'ately
wont over to Wakeland's , found his
wife lying dead with her throat out
and the bed soaked with blood.
Wakelaud had left a note on the
table in which ho stated he had
killed his wife and that ho was going
to the cemetery to kill himself.
They bad been married five or six
years. She was his second wife
Her name was formerly Mrs M. A.
Hitchcock of Fremont and for ten

Wakeland of Berwyn , who being
notified of the tradgoy went
down to Brook Tuesday. It in said
that Wakolaud had been sick some

Tko True ropnllstltovolt
The members of the populist
> arty who have maintained that
hey never would b'o used na tool
o help the democrat party to
have boon placed in a position by
ho action of their national committee -
mitteo which meet at Lincoln on the
10th , inst. to prove to the world of
what material they are mado. 'I ho
oadora in that convention without
Bomblonoo of a trial arbitrarily
gnorod every member of the com
mittee who refused to submit to
democratic dictation and would
allow neither a voice or scat in the
convention to which they had boon
elected as delegates by the consti
tuents of their several states. The
ii UOPU of the Republic , the
organ of the true populist Bays of
the proceedings that , the high
banded and disgraceful proceedings
ot Chairman Butler and Senator
Alien in excluding the antifusiou
members of the national populist
committee on last Monday curing
their session at the state oapitol
might well have been expected. It
was a part of a preooncieved plan.
Of this we were awore and sounded
the note of warning last fall when
wo printed the letter dated Sopl. 22 ,
1808 , written dy M. C. Harrington ,
the democratic candidate for congress -
gross in the Sixth Nebraska district ,
explaining his withdrawal from the
race to Juan Boyle , of tli3 demo
cratic congressional committee. In
that letter Mr. Harrington declared.
After 1000 there will bb no ne
cessity of a third party. * * *
Wo must accept the inevitable. *
* * There is only one more yonr
to wait aud ( union will bo all over.
There will bo but two parlioo and
the loaders of the democratic party
now will bo the recognized It adore
Wbon Harrington wrote this
ndisoroot letter ho evidently talked
by the card. lie had just come
rom a conference with Biyan and
had been taken into the confidence
the democratic presidential can
didate. Ho had been initiated into
the plan of campaign and could
safely predict that the populist
party would bo annihilated by the
If any populist harbored any
doubta about the program that con.
templates the complete absorption
of his party by the democrats
durijg tbo impending campaign ,
the disgraceful aud high-handed
proceedings of the national com
mittee at Lincoln must dispel them.
A more arbitrary usurpation of
power and denial of rights by an
uuHorupulous committee ohairnm
has never boon witnessed. The
people's independent party , which
was founded as a revolt against
machine methods of the old parties ,
has boon seized by a most remor
seless political machine that over
rides all independence and adopts
star chamber methods which not
even Boss Tweed would have tolerated
erated ; but the seizure was short
lived. Fifty-Bjven members of the
national committee immediately
organited , with a majority of fifteen
over their other faction.
