Congressman McCarthy is encounterIng -
Ing opposition In the form of the can
didacy of Judge J. F. Boyd of Nellgh
and former State Senator W. W.
Young of Stanton. Boyd has already
captured instructed delegations from
Antelope , Madison and Wayne , while
Boone and Cedar , the other two coun
ties whose delegations have been
named , are uninstructed. The contest
between McCarthy and Boyd is acute
in several places , especially In Dodge
county , where Ross Hammond is
championing McCarthy and L. D. Rich
ards and C. E. Abbott opposing him.
Should McCarthy lose In Dodge coun
ty he could hardly hope to win his
renomlnatlon , although even a victory
there would not make It certain.
Young's hope Is to come In us a com
promise candidate. It may take the
congressional convention , which meets
in Fremont August 1C , to settle the
A Model Family.

been without Chamberlain's Colic ,
