A South Omaha correspondent thus
writes concerning stock interests : Con
sidering the high prices at which
southern stockers were held this
spring , the movement has been larger
than anticipated. All of the cattle are
in prime condition , and when they |
ripen on the northern and western
ranges their beef will , it is said , excel
the corn-fed critters. The total num
ber of feeders purchased from southern
ranges to-be4atted on the northwest
ranges this spring was 94..700 liead. A
dispatch from" Amarillo , Tex. , received
at tne stock yards , stated that there
was not a single 2-year-old steer left
for sale of the tens of thousands
brought there this season. There are
very few yearlings and 3-year-olds.
As a rule the cattlemen get more for
their stock than theyexpected. .

Ticket Hinted At Con
St. Louis , Mo. , June 2 2. E. H.
Sellers of Michigan , president of the
A. P. A. national council , and Con
gressman W.S. Linton of Michigan are
deeply incensed at the refusal of the
resolution committee of the Republi
can national convention to incorpor
ate the declaration demanded by the
order in the platform declaring
for absolute freedom of all public
schools from sectarian influence and
civil inspection of all private educa
tional instructions , for the absolute
separation of church and State , for no
more sectarian appropriations , for
stringeut immigration laws , for re
striction of suffrage to citizens only ,
for ownership of lands to actual Amer
ican citizens and against alien owner
ship , for prohibition of contract con
vict labor , for a national system of
education and for the taxation of all
but public property.
Colonel Sellers says the Repub
lican party will lose a million votes ,
and will not be able to carry several
states that they are now counting in
the Republican column. He declares
the party will lose 100,000 votes in
Missouri alone , and that it will lose
Illinois as a result of Mr. Hanna's
stupidity or his intentional insult to
"Why did the committee on resolu
tions take this action ? One of two
reasons can be given : Either the Re
publican party designed and intended ,
by leaving out this ( non-sectrian ap
propriation plank ) proposed portion
of the platform , to placate the Roman
Catholie hierarchy of this country ,
and by so doing make a bid for that
vote ; or , second , to insult the patriotic
associations of the country and at
tempt to whip them into line and
make them worship at the shrine of
the golden calf. The action of the
convention , through a committee , was
an exhibition of the rankest coward
ice coupled with motives of the most
unparalleled corruption and dishon
esty that over emanated from the
heart and mind of man.
"The election of Kerens , a pro
nounced Catholic , and a political ad
visor of Satolli , as a member of the
national Republican committee , was
a direct insult , and designed as such ,
to all our patriotic societies. "
Colonel Sellers was asked if the A.
P. A. would put up a ticket in Mis
souri. He said that that would be
left entirely with the State organiz
ation , but he thought there would be
an American ticket in nearly every
State in the Union. He confirmed
the story that Mark llanna had re
ceived an ultimatum from the A. P.
A. of this State , and that he had gone
ever to Kerens in defiance of the
wishes of the order to keep Kerens
out of the national committee.
"I am going from here to the Dem-
cratic convention in Chicago next
month , and 1 will present the same
plank to the resolutions committee of
that body. While there I will con
sult with the supreme president of one
of the largest patriotic associations in
the country. I do not expect to. re
ceive any worse treatment at the
bauds of the Democratic convention
than I received here.
"T will come here to the Populist
and Silver party convention. July 2'2 ,
and present the plank. If the result
is the same * I beiieve it is the duty of
the Am rican people to prepare for
the organization of an American party ,
purd and simple , based upon the origi
nal idea of our fathers. "

LEADVILLE MINES CLOSE.
Owners and the Union Clash and Strike
and Lockout Follow.
Leadville , Col. , June 22. Unless a
settlement shall be quickly reached
between the mine owners and the
Miners' union work is likely to be sus
pended at nearly all of the silver mines
in the camp. The Ibex company ,
owners of the Little Johnny mine ,
shut down all of their properties to
day. All the miners were also laid off
indefinitely at the Alps , Garbutt , Yak
and other mines where the men's
wages were S3 per day.
Although the trouble originated in
a demand of the union for S3 per day
in silver mines , the owners of which
claim they cannot pay such wages at
the present price of silver , the owners
claim that the real issue is whether
the Miners' union shall be nermitted
to dictate the emploj'ment of only
union men , and they will fight this to

Hobart for Vice President.
After the decision of the Piatt forces
in New York not to present the uame
of Governor Morton , owing to the war
waged against him by the Warner
Miller taction , the nomination of Ho
bart of New Jersey became a certainty.
Mr. Hanna and the McKinley influ
ence was thrown for him , and although
there was an attempt to consolidate
the West on Evans of Tennessee , the
McKinley influence was too potent.
Besides , it was the general sense of
the delegates that the logic of the
situation required the nomination of
an Eastern man for Vice Preside nt.
The nomination speeches were brief ,
liulkley , of Connecticut ; Tipp , of
Rhode Island , and General Walker , of
Virginia , were also placed in nomina
tion , but it only required one ballot
to determine the contest. Hobart re
ceived jVJO ) * ; votes. ' . 'U ' more than a ma
jority. Evans , his nearest competitor ,
received 2S ( 3-j. There were scattering
votes for Heed , Thurston , Grant , le-
peu\ Morton and Brown.
Kansas voted solidly for Hobart and
Missouri gave Evans 1- and Hobartlil.
Committees of one from each slate to
notify the nominees were appointed.
