more than the required number. When
It was seen that Boyd was nominated ,

staff correspondent : The convention
of the Third congressional district ,
called to meet hero at 10 o'clock today ,
to place In nomination a candidate to
succeed J. J. McCarthy as representa
tive in congress , was rather slow In
getting together and It was some time
after the hour named when Chairman
Fales sounded the gavel which called
the delegations to order. Jack Koenlg-
stein , secretary of the central commit
M tee , read the call , and then the chair
man Introduced Ross Hammond as
temporary chairman , with the announcement
nouncement that ho had been selected
by the central committee to preside
temporarily over the deliberations of
When Mr. Hammond assumed the
chair , he made a speech In which he
sounded the key note of the campaign ,
dwelling with earnestness upon the
fact that the republican stands today
for the people as against the cor
porations , endorsing the railway
commission amendment and declaring
for the anti-pass platforms that have
been adopted by nearly every repub
lican county convention In Nebraska.
After Mr. Hammond's address , there
appearing to be no contesting delega
tions , the credentials in the hands of
the secretary were accepted and the
delegates allowed seats in the coiiven
Burt county moved that E. E. Taylor

Fremont , Neb. , Aug. 1C. From a
staff correspondent- : 9 o'clock this
morning it was conceded that Boyd
would he nominated for congress in
.ho convention hero today , whllo his
enthusiastic supporters claimed for
ilm that ho would be named on the
This forecast was made after a hard
night of campaigning among the dele
gallons who began to arrive yosterdaj
afternoon. The hotels where the three
candidates have their headquarters
were busy scenes during the ear
y part of the night , and the "mill
ng around" of the delegates and boom
ers was continued until a late hour
Early In the game Boyd sentiment pre
dominated , and yet the McCarthy fore
es kept up a bravo front and assumed
to claim everything In sight. Gradual
y , however , as they felt the props
dropping out from under them , their
faces began to lengthen , while those
of the Boyd crowd broadened corres
pondlngly. At midnight It could be
easily told whether a man was for
Boyd or McCarthy by the difference In
expression of faces. The Boyd men
were good natured despite the terrific
heat of the day and night , while the
McCarthy men had a fagged look Urn
betokened a hopeless prospect for the
morrow. The Young men were on the
alert to catch what consolation there
might be In the strained situation be
tween McCarthy and Boyd. Young
stands in the position of being a receptive
ceptivo candidate , and his supporters
believed that If he could hold the bal
mice of power the time would come
when McCarthy's friends would go to
him and make him the candidate.
The delegates and workers were ra
ther slow In getting around this morn
Ing and then they showed fatigue a
the results of the hard night of work
By the tlmo they had breakfasted
however , the last delegations had ar
rived on morning trains and they wer
ready to count noses. The forecas
was that Boyd would go Into the con
ventlon with 128 votes , McCarthy 9
and Young 35. This would leave Boy
lacking only two of enough to nom
nate , but It was figured that with th
nomination that near , more than th
required number of additional dele
gates would swing.to bis support , am
make only one ballot necessary. Ther
was a rumor that when Mr. McCarth
became convinced that ho could no
be named , he would attempt to thro\
his votes to Young , on the theory tha
McCarthy and Young combined hav
enough votes to control the conven
tlon , but It was known to a cortalnt
that this could not ho done , as McCa
thy does not have such a hold on man
of his followers that he can place them

many apuctacleu more dazzling and bo-
wilderlng , hut never hua there been in
this country one more appealing and
Impressive than that which passed
through the alreots of Minneapolis.
The parade was a notable affair , aa
such things go , well handled , quick
moving and Insplilng to look upon.
It was a day of pride for the old sol

titude In the straots.
At the head of the column was a
mounted platoon of police. Directly
behind the police and nt the head of
the parade proper came the magnlfl-
