Farmers realize that it is profitable to

formerly been a demand hero for good

of horses from now on for the market.

Democrat Named to Head Fu
sion Ticket in Nebraska.
FUSION OF FORCES IS EFFECTED.
J. H. Bayston and F. H. Hawxby , Pop.
ullsts , Are Selected as the Candi
dates for University Regents Ad
journ In the Morning.
Lincoln , Sept. 18. Fualon between
the Democratic and Populist parties
of Nebraska was effected by their
state conventions after sessions held
In Ropuruto halls , beginning shortly
before 3 o'clock In the afternoon of
Tuesday , and continuing until 2
o'clock Wednesday morning. As a ro-
Biilt of the agreement to fuse the Dem
ocrats are given the head of the ticket ,
supreme court Justice , and the two
regents of the university go to the
Populists. The ticket Is :
Justice of Supreme Court Conrad
Hollenbeck of Dodge county.
Regents of University J. II. Bays-
ston , Frontier county ; Fred G. Hawx
by , Nemaha county.
Both conventions were well attend
ed , but the Populists' proceedings were
apathetic compared with previous
state gatherings. The Democrats , on
the other bund , showed more of their
old-time vigor. Absolute faith In the
leadership of W. J. Bryan marked the
speeches and resolutions and the men
tion of his name was the signal for
hearty applnuso. Hostility was de
clared to reorganization of the party
on any line of policy different from
Partisanship , owing to the tragedy
at Buffalo , tempered the speeches and
resolutions In both conventions and
fouling references to the ( load presi
dent was mndo by ouch chairman.
Convention Called to Order.
At 2-10 : o'clock , at the Funko opera
hoiipo , Chairman Hall of the state
central committee culled the Democratic
cratic- con volition to order. He Intro
duced as temporary chairman Hon.
W. H. Thompson of Grand Island.
Chairman Thompson begun with a
trlbuto to President McKlnley and a
declaration against anarchy and an
archists nnd continued In part us fol
"I am glud to greet a Democracy
that knows no surrender. Would that
there were more of us ; that those who
left us in the last two campaigns were
of us. Why should they not return ?
Behold the ruin which followed In the
wako of their disloyalty to party.
Through their assistance the declara
tion of Independence Is made a mock-
cry ; the Monroe doctrine crippled , If
not robbed of much of Its virtue ; a co
lonial system fastened upon us , with
Its wars and rumors of wars ; a menac
ing standing army , with Its Increased
burdens ; an Income tax swept away
and a prohibitory tariff In Us place ,
fostering trusts and stifling competi
tion. These are some of the wrecks
that lie in the pathway of this suicidal
policy , and nil for what ? That a gold
dollar might bo said to be the unit of
value instead of the historic silver
"The grand old Democratic party
Is willing to be reorganized , If need bo ,
by Democrats , loyal nnd true , but
those who have been beating the snare
drum In the Republican band are not
the fellows who should handle the
cornet in the Democratic procession.
"May I ask why all this talk of re
organization ? If we are to reorganize
on what line ?
"Is n Democratic principle to be de
serted simply because It has met de
feat at the polls. If a platform Is the
concensus of opinion of the majority
of a party , and If the minority should
yield to the will of the majority so
expressed , can there be a question
as to where the Democracy stands
today ? "
With the addition of George W. Phil
lips of Columbus as secretary , the
temporary organization was made
permanent. While Chalrraan Thomp
son was selecting the committee on
resolutions and ono to confer with
the Populists , William J. Bryan was
called to the platform nnd spoke for
a few moments. He paid a tribute to
President McKlnley and declare.d that
every loyal Democrat condemned the
assassination. He urged the Demo
crats to remain firm In the faith and
said victory would yet come to them.
The defeat of the fusion forces In Ne
braska last fall , ho said , was a matter
of more- regret to him than defeat In
A motion to adjourn out of respect to
President McKlnley was opposed by a
minority , which wished to complete
the work at once. An hour was occu
pied In debate on this question. The
convention at 5 o'clock took a recess
until 7:30. :
Proceedings of Populists.
The Populists at the same hour. In
the Lincoln Auditorium , were called
to order by State Chairman Edmlsten.
Out of the 2,117 delegates provided for
In the call. only400or500 were present.
E. Thomas of Onmlm was selected B3
temporary chairman. Mr. Thomas
made a short speech. The convention
by a viva voce vote declared Its ad-
horrenco and humiliation at the as
sassination of President McKlnley ;
bespoke Its sympathy with the sorrowIng -
Ing widow and relatives , and de
nounced the crlmo of the anarchist , !
Czoliosz , ami demanded the enact- ]
input of laws defining anarchy and
providing adequate punishment. After
thu appointment of a committee on
resolutions and one on conference
with the Democrats the convention ,
as a further mark of respect to the
president , adjourned until 5 o'clock.
Nominations were declared in order
after reconvening by the chairman
aud E. 0. KretslDKer was selected on
( ho second ballot nnd declared the
nominee of the convention , condi
tioned , however , on ratification by the
Hollenbeck to Head Ticket.
The evening session of the Democrats - ,
crats was held In representative hall "T
at the Htato capital. The coimnlttoa
on conference with the Populists an-
nonnced that an agreement bud been
reached whereby one party was to
have the judgeshlp nnd the other the
two regents of the university In such
manner as the committees should de
cide. Nominations for supreme court
judge brought out the names of W. D.
Oldliam. Judge Grace , Judge Conrad
Hollenbeck. E. P. Dulllo. W. H. Kelle-
gar and W. G. Hastings. The first
ballot resulted : Oldliam , 151 ; Grace ,
1C ; Hollenbeck , 420 ; Dulllo. 332 ; Hast
ings , 151 ; Kellegar , G. Necessary tea
a choice , 542. Judge Hotlenbeck of
Fremont was nominated on the second
end ballot , receiving 542 1-2 votes , a
half vote more than necessary. His
nomination wan made unanimous , sub
ject to the approval of the Populists.
The committee on conference an
nounced that the Populists had named
E. O. Kretslnger as Its candidate for
Judge. The convention called for the
report of the platform committee. The
Democratic platform , us reported and
adopted , so tnr as It deals with na
tional Issues , Is the shortest on record
In this state , being confined to two
short plunks. It says :
"We declare our unfaltering alle
giance to and belief In the principles
of the Democratic party as enunciated
by our great leaders from Jefferson to '
Bryan and as explicitly set forth In
the platform adopted by the national
convention nt Kansas City In 1900.
While we believe , now , as in the past ,
that the United States should continue
to bo an asylum for oppressed of all
European nations who come hero with
the honest purpose of becoming citi
zens and to share In the blessings of
a government based on the consent
of the governed , yet we demand moro
stringent Immigration laws , so devised
and executed as to exclude anarchists
of all countries from entering Amer
ican territory and we demand such
legislation , both state and national ,
as will suppress anarchy In this coun
Over 500 words are devoted to state

being In condemnation of the parole
