Talks Republicanism.
Judge Barnes Presided and W. M.
Robertson Told How Ho Know
Mickey Was Not a Railroad Candi
date Music by Colored Quartet ,
The republican rally last night wes
iold in the Roes building , the building
at the corner of Main nnd Third'etroets
having Leon put to use for apple storage
and sales room. The room had boon
seated with chairs , lighted and was
made very oomfortablo by the commit-
too. A largo flag was hnug over the
roar cud of the room and pictures of
McKinley , Roosevelt , Mickey and
McCarthy wore displayed.
Singing by a colored quartet opened
the program of the evening , after which
Chairman Simpson of the republican
central committee nominated Judge J.
B. Barnes as chairman ] of the mooting ,
and ho was chosen. Mr. Barnes with a
few words of introduction presented
Judge W. M. Robertson who has boon
campaigning with Mr. Mickey. Mr.
Robertson began by congratulating the
people on the audiouoo present , ex
plaining himself by saying that not in
his experience in politics , covering rnoro
than a quarter of a century , had there
boon such n lack of interest in political
meetings. Ho explained the situation
with the assertion that everyone is busy
and that ho does not believe there is an
idle man in the country who cares to
work. Another reason for the general
apathy is that people have confidence
iu their president and are satisfied with
his administration. He took occasion
to state that ho know that Mr. Mickey
was not a candidate of the railroads.
He attended the convention that nom
inated him , in nn interested capacity ,
and was in a position to know how the
nomination came about. Mr. Robert
son came oloso to being nominated at
the same convention and it could be
scon that his statement had great
weight with his auditors.
The quartet gnvo an original song
with Thompson as a theme and Judge
Barnes introduced the speaker of the
evening , Hon. Norris Brown of Kear
ney , deputy attorney general and atone
ono time candidate for congress in his
Mr. Brown prefaced his nmnikswith
the statement that while this section of
the state was not successful in securing
the [ nominee for governor nt the late
convention , it mightjbo successful next
year in naming the candidate for supreme
premo judge. Ho referred to the chair
man of the meeting , Judge Barnes , and
his statement was . greeted with ap
Mr. Brown proved to be a most elo
quent and entertaining speaker nnd
hold the close attention of the audience
for more than an hour , during which
time ho reviewed men nnd issues be
fore the people in a thorough manner ,
being careful not to abuse or malign
any of the opposition party. It was
generally conceded that his speech was
a vote maker and ho left a good impres
sion with all who hoard him. Ho was
interrupted by questions once or twice ,
but answered in a manner that brought
out the applause , even of the questioner.

Opinion That Ho May Not bo a Vic
tim of Assault.
There in no longer any question but
that John Irwin , the man found in the
old Reno barn in n helpless condition ,
lias sustained a fracture of the base of
the skull. His physician says that all
symptomB are to that effect. The frac
ture is about an inch or an inch and a
half in length and extends across the
opening loading to the drum of the oar.
EIo experienced profuse bleeding from
the HOBO and the fluid that surrounds
the brain has boon oozing from the ear ,
damaging the ear drum. Last night ho
was dollriouH and had it not boon that
George Thtolo had been appointed to
watch him , there is no telling what ho
wonld have done. Ho jumped out of
bed several times during the night , and
other times , instead of sleeping , ho ap
peared to bo iu a stupor. It is thought
that inasmuch as ho has survived thus
far , ho stands a good chauco of com
plete recovery , with proper core.
Commissioner Winter has put in con
siderable time with the man. He vis
ited him four times yesterday in an en
deavor to find out from him something
of how ho came to bo injured and where
he has recently made his homo. Irwin
appeared to answer readily enough ,
until important questions were asked ,
and then ho evaded or refused to
answer. Whether ho was capable of
giving all the information desired is a
subject of doubt , but it is known that
ho could have told moro than ho did.
The commissioner finally decided that
ho should bo taken to the poor farm and
cared for there , but his condition this
morning wonld not admit of that move
being made , and ho will bo taken care
of in the city.boing taken to the Wognor
house this morning.
Some doubt is expressed about thugs
being responsible for his condition and
the motive robbery. His injuries may
have resulted from n fall , or a blow on
top of the head may have produced the
fracture of the base of the brain. It IB
reported that ho was under the influ
ence of intoxicants Saturday , but ho
steadfastly denies that ho had boon
drinking. Whatever may have boon
the cause for his condition will probably
not bo known until ho has fully re
covered the UBO of his mental faculties ,
and even then it will all depend on
whether or not ho would recall all the
events that transpired from the time ho
came to town until ho was discovered in
the Reno barn.
