NOW AND THEN.
The political situation is he-
coining more and more strenuous
.is the days pass. The State
committee of the republican
party met in Lincoln last Thurs
day night and called the conven
tion for August 22. Omaha
made a hard fight to have it lo
cated there but the committee
prcfcrcd Lincoln as being the
more centrally located , consequently
quently the latter city was
choosen. The convention will be
smaller than any held for years.
The number of delegates for the
past three years has been so
large that the conventions have
been unwieldy and hard to main
tain order. This year there will
be but 857 delegates , of which
Richardson County will be en
titled to 16.
One of the propositions before
the committee , and the one
which was fought the hardest ,
was the question as to whether
or not the convention should ex
press a choice for United States
Senator. The committeeinen
who favored Norris Brown were
in favor of having the state con
vention determine the matter ,
while those who oppossed Mr.
Brown's candidacy wanted the
question left over for the legisla
ture , doubtless hoping that a
legislature would be easier to
handle against Brown than a
convention composed of the rank
and file of the party. After 'a
vigorous contest the committee
determined by a large majority in
in favor of the state convention
plan. The opponents of Brown
say that they will fight the mat
ter before the convention and
oppose any action by the conven
tion on the grounds that the
office is one that the legislature
cal alone fill , and that a state
convention has no business mak
ing a rcccomendation.
All the prospective candidates
for Governor except Sheldon a't-
temled the meeting and worked
among the couimitteeineii. At
this stage of the game it looks
like Ex-Auditor Westou as the
railroad candidate will fight'it
out with Sheldon. Mr. Weston
is a very agreeable gentleman
and a man of good ability. lie
will have powerful interest be
hind his candidacy and will un
doubtedly be a factor in the con
test. That Sheldon will receive
the nomination there is but little
doubt. The Governor should be
the representative of the people.
His duties as a member of the
state board of equalization arc
such that he has great opportun
ity of favoring special interest in
the matter of taxation. All that
the railroads should ask is a
sotiarc deal. If they ask more
and bring some gentleman out as
their candidate pledged' to give
them something to which they
are not ciititle'd. it will be reason
ably safe to place a bet against
the o.'imlidatp so brought out.
Congressman Pollard was quite
active among the conimitteetnen
from the fust-district ascertain
ing the condition of his fences.
There seems to be a big sized
light on Pollard as a result of tlie
way in which he secured his
nomination a year ago. Otoe ,
Johnson and probably Pawnee
and Nemaha will be against him.
Judge Holmes will be a candi
date from Lancaster and possibly
Allen Field. An elTort is being
made on the part of several out
side counties to induce Mr. Field
to get into the race S. Field is
now in Cuba and nothing is
known as to his intentions. If
he were to become a candidate ,
and should he carry Lancaster
County there would be an excell
ent chance for nomination. Some
of the newspaper in the district
are after Pollard pretty hard and
are publishing detailed statements
of his campaign expenses which
amounted to the sum of $2,408.
Among the items enumerated are
cigar bills which the opposition
papers claim are in violation of
the laws of this state. We notice
among the receipts given in the
affidavit two contributions from
Richardson County , one Irom O.
A. Cooper of $87.50 , and one
from A. J. Weaver of $25.
Pollard is at present recuring
complimentary interviews from
his friends in the district and
publishing them in the State
Journal , among Which we find
the following :
A. J , Weaver , T. J. Weaver ,
A. Maust , J. II. Miles and J. II.
Moorchead of Falls City are in
town. All are well known busi
ness men of that city and are in
touch with Richardson county af-
tairs. Discussing the congress
ional situation in that county A.
J. Weaver said :
"Richardson county is for
Pollard. There is no demand
nor any movement to get anyone
else in the race. The people feel
that he comes nearer rcprescnt-
an agricultural community than
any congressman we have ever
had , and because he does they
favor returning him. He made
a fight for the office under dis
advantages and has served the
the people well. There is no
reason why he should not be. re
turned. He is not only popular
with the republicans of our
county but we find little criti-
cist of him from people of other
political faiths. "
Mr. Morchcad is a democrat.
He said : "Of course I am not of
Mr. Pollard's political faith but
I know that the people of Rich
ardson county regard him highly
nnd that there is no movement
there to dislodge him. Mr. Pol
lard is popular in Richardson. "
Mr. Moreheatl is cashier of the
First National bank of Falls City.
He formerly lived at Barada.
Both he and Mr. Weaver said the
people of Richardson arc pros
perous and that business condi
tions were never better. A big
scheme is now being perfected
b3 * which the channel of the
Nemaha river will be straight
ened and the damage done an
nually by Hoods will be avoided.
Congressman Pollard arrived
at the Lincoln hotel last night.
He said he was pleased to find so
little opposition to his candidacy
In addition to the fight being
made on the outside of his own
county , Pollard seems to be hav
ing trouble at home. C a s s
County is also the home of Geo.
Sheldon , candidate for Governor.
Mr. Sheldon is very popular at
home and every inducement was
made _ to get him to run for con-
when Pollard made the race a
year ago. Mr. ' Sheldon and Pol
lard are cousins however , and ;
Sheldon , not wanting to go to
congress , refused to permit his ;
name to be used. Sheldon was
absent when the convention was
held and some friend placed his
name before the convention held
by the Cass County republicans ,
notwithstanding his positive
statement that he would not ac
cept he came within a few votes
of having the delegation forced
on him. Now Sheldon is a can
didate for Governor and the re
publicans of Cass county are for
him to a man. The statement
was freely and openly made in
Lincoln last week by Cass county
men , that if Pollard's candidacy
would interfere with Sheldon's
chances he would not be given
his home delegation. Altogi-th
er it looks like a hors ; race for
The only chance for a scrap in
the state convention will be on
the question of United States
Senator , Governor and Treasurer.
All the other nominations will be
by acclamation. There may be
some contest over a platform but
the views of the rank and file of
of the party are so well known ,
and the opinion in favor of cer
tain principles of government is
so nearly unanimous that there
should be but little trouble over
a platform. Among the candi
dates for Treasurer are M. Rilcy
of Richardson , Peter Berlet and
Ellis Good of Nemaha , Cady of
Howard county , LJ. . Brian of
Albion and A. D. Beetner. ward

An Alfalfa Question.
A correspondent from Sac coun
ty , Iowa , writes that our sug
gestion about sowing alfalfa in
August rather upsets his calcula
tions. He expected to sow a
bushel and a half of Early Cham
pion oats and fifteen pounds of
alfalfa , and now wishes us to
tell him just what to do.
If we knew there would be a
normal rainfall in July and
August we would say , disk the
cornstalk ground thoroughly
( not plow , but disk ) , sow his
Early Champion oats at the rate
of two bushels and a half to the
acre. Then when the oats crop
is removed disk the ground re
peatedly , so as to be sure of the
greatest supply of water practi
cable , and sow in August.
The chance one must take in
this , however , is that of not hav
ing enough moisture to keep the
alfalfa humming from the time
it comes up until snow flics. Thft
only way to provide for this is to
keep the soil thoroughly pucver-
izcd until it is in the condition of
a corn field when the corn is laid
by , but maintaining this soil
mulch until the time to sow al
falfa. The chances against its
success are not so great in Sac
county as they would be west of
the Missouri , where farmers gen
erally adopt spring sowing , be
cause they fear a prolonged dry
spell , in August.
If we were to adopt the method
of sowing in the spring with
oats , we would sow about a bush
el and a half , as our correspon
dent proposes , but we would use
twenty-five pounds of alfalfa.
We would stand ready , in case
the oats threatened to lodge , to
mow them and make hay of
them , thus giving the alfalfa a
The third method , that usually
adopted , is to sow in April or
first half of May , on well pre
pared land , and mow the weeds
about three times a year. In
this way you get no crop , but
you have quite as much labor as
if you had a crop.
As pointed out heretofore , if
alfalfa is cut off before it begins
to bloom , it waits until the buds
start from the crown. The weeds
however , grow right along , re
quiring frequent mowings. This
method has not proved a success
on our Iowa farm , although it
has been successful on our Ne
braska farms. It is , however ,
an expensive way of getting a
stand. On the whole , in the
latitude of central Iowa , we pre
fer the fall seeding. It has done
better for us , and has done best
it Ames ; but there is that chance
of a drouth in August , which
must be guarded against the only
way it can be. and that is b-
thorough cultivation and main
taining a dust mulch , thus con

There is about a drama adver
tised as being "Biblical" that
which may cause many to ask
whether a saon-il u > ry is < o in
teresting as one of current days.
The birth of Christianity , the
crucifixion of the Saviour and the
beheading of John the Baptist ,
formed an epoch in which occur-
ed the tragedy of the world ; from
this history Clarence Bennett
compiled "The Holy City. " No
story of modern strife has half
the power , no narrative of recent
years presents the thrill of that
which has lasted throughout all
iiges. "The Holy City" holds
the attention of all classes and
so well does the management
know this that to the less in
formed the following offer is
made : To any purchaser of a
ticket to a performance who at
the end of the first act is not
satisfied with the investment , his
or her money will be returned.
