ble excitement among citizens over the
declarations of a scientist that a half

Tho meeting at the Opera House
Thursday evening, addressed by Att'y
Gen'l Leese and. Hon. J. L. Caldwell of
Lincoln was a decided success. Mr.
Leese, besides reviewing the tariff ques
tion, stated in very decided terms, the
course he intended pursuing on the
railroad question. Mr. Caldwell's speech
was- a finished oration throughout, and
greatly delighted the republicans' pres
ent. At the meeting of the representa
tives composed of the commissioned
officers of the divisions of the Uniform
Bank K. of .P. at Fremont Thursday,

intention of taking another teacher by

Niels Olson received the nomina
tion for float representative for 'Platte'
and Nance counties Tuesday at the dis
trict convention held 'at Genoa. Mr.
Olson is one of the honest representa
tive fanners of old Platte.. He has serv
ed'his township as supervisor ever since
township organization was 'established
in the county, and he is one of the best
and honest workers of the board. . He
is well informed as to the needs, of the
district, and not only has the ability,
but will have the inclination and dispo
sition to work for the interests .of the
people. Nance county, like Platte is
under the township system of self-government,
and has a practical realization
of the defects of the township law.
Niels Olson, perhaps more than any
other man in the district, understands
thoroughly its every provisions and' de
ficiencies, and can be a power in the
legislature to remedy and correct its ills.
He is a frank, honest man, and the peo
ple -frill know where to find him on all
questions that affect their interests.
