OFFICIAL COUNTY PAPER.
At three o'clock , yesterday , Gen
eral Toral surrendered the city of
Santiago to General Shatter. The
Spanish are granted safe conduct
for their troops to Spain. Under the
terms of the Spanish surrender all
of Eastern Cuba passes under the
control of the American forces.
About 10,000 Spanish troops will be
sent back to Spain. It is thought
by many that this is the beginning
of the end of the war.
A number of cases of yellow fe
ver are reported among the Amer
ican troops at Santiago , which fact ,
together with the terrible rains now
deluging that section , make the
closing of the Santiago campaign
opportune as it was imperative.
It is now proposed to move on
Porto Rico , and the advance on Ha
vana will come later , if the city
does not succumb to starvation
IN view of the sanitary condi
tions in Santiago , the surrender of
that city at this time is of great
est value to America. A pro
longed fight would mean frightful
loss of life from disease and ex
posure to the rains now prevailing
in that tropical laud.
THE Republican congressional
committee held a session in the
city of Hastings , Monday after
noon , for the purpose of calling
the convention for the Republi
cans of the Fifth district. There
was a fair representation of the
counties of the district by their
committeemen and a confident ,
hopeful spirit prevailed in the
committee as to the prospects for
success in this district in the com
ing election. It was decided to
hold the convention on Tuesday ,
August 30th , 1898 , at five o'clock
in the afternoon in the city of
Holdrege. The representation is
based the same as the state con
vention , which will give the con
vention about 1GO delegates.
MUCH attention is being given
to the naming of possible candi
dates for the gubernatorial nomi
nation by politicians and the press.
In this we have taken and expect
to take no part. We have no pets
or favorites for the office of gover
nor. Any Republican of brains
and ability will fill the bill for us
to a nicety. But the nomination
must not o to mediocrity , must
not be accorded to inferiority , must
not be placed on the ten-cent coun
ter of the politicians. The posi
tion , if not the salary , demands
solid , dignified ability ; ability that
is clean and high and honorable ;
ability that is above the petty and
small things that so often and too
often disgrace and humilate us of
the west. The man who measures
up to these requirements most
nearly is the man for the nomina
tion and we hope most sincerely
that some high-minded man offeree
of character and purity of political
and personal life may be found of
sufficient patriotism to waive the
insignificant salary inducement and
take the nomination. There is an
assured' election aw a ting such a
man. The thinking business men ,
the honorable professional men
and the conservative farmers of r <
the state will vote for such a man. |
