There was not much done st the
meeting of the school board Monday
evening. In Sup't Scott's report there
was one case of corporal punishment
spoken of. In explanation he said that
the boy had been fighting all the boys,
and he had ordered Mr. Weaver to flog
him, if he continued. Bills were al
lowed to the amount of $907.59, the
largest being to Wiley & Weaver for
coal, $490.40; American Book Co.,
$17&85; Sheldon & Co., books, $16X08;
C. W. Webster k Co. $31.35; freight
bills $1&26; among the smaller bills was
that of Supt Scott, $2.50 for .postage
stamps and $2.50 for matches, candles
and soap. He said that it was an esti
mate. He supposed he had spent $20 in
this way in the years that he had been
here, and this was the only bill he had
presented; the matohear-ete were used
in the laboratory and he was in the
habit of giving some change to the chil
dren and sending for these things when
needed. The other small bills were R.
C. Boyd $10.80; A Boettcher $6.10; D.
F. Davis $6.75; Wm. Norell $3.75; Fred.
Novell $2.25. Certain transfers of funds
were ordered. It appears that the
monthly pay roll amounts to $925. The

The TJ. S. marshal has served a
warning to the people that there is cir
culating in Nebraska towns and cities a
very dangerous counterfeit $10 gold
piece. On its face it pretends to be of
the coinage of 1882. Close examination
shows that it is a pewter core cast in a
mold made from a genuine coin, the
false piece being skillfully plated. Mike
Lamb of Boone county, already under
bonds on a charge of stealing cattle, has
been apprehended for passing one of
these pieces. Mike has a pretty plaus
ible story to tell about accommodating
a stranger with small change, who wan
ted to bet on the horse races at the Al
bion fair. In a few minutes, he bought
10 cents' worth of fruit from a man
named Wilson, giving him the $10
piece, and was, soon after that, put un
der arrest The counterpart of the
same false coin was passed on a dealer
in Omaha Thursday.

On motion of Gondring the temporary
organization was made permanent.
Davis moved that the convention pro
ceed to transact business in the order
laid down in the call. The motion was
seconded by Schupbach, and passed
without objection, whereupon the chair
man read the call.
Moran moved that the chairman ap
point a committee consisting of one
from each township and ward of the
county to select eleven names for sub
mission to the convention as delegates
to the state convention.
Before the chairman had time to state
the question, Hale moved that each
delegate present name one of the com
mittee remarking that it was taxing
the chairman too much, or words to that
effect Gondring rose to a point of
order that the chair had not yet stated
the motion to which Mr. "Halo's motion
was evidently an amendment. The kink
was soon straightened and tho amend
ment placed before -the convention. The
chair was in doubt and called for a
division when it was veryplainly evi
dent that the ayes were far ahead, and
that the other fellows tried to make up
in noise what they lacked in numbers.
It was a lengthy process, but resulted
in the selection of the following dele
gates, the report of the committee being
ratified: D. Schupbach, Peter Bender,
John StaufTer, Dr. Okay, D. Bettinger,
O. S. Moran, B. Becher, D. F. Davis, T.
H. Gleason, R H. Henry and Jx P.
The delegates to the senatorial con
vention were then selected, D. F. Davis
presenting - a list of names that he
thought would be satisfactory did it
just to expedite business. The delega
tion was headed by Jonas Welch, and
among the other delegates were Zeller,
Murphy, Bender, Carrig, Elliott, Griffin
The county central committee for the
next two years was selected, each dele
gation naming its member. Why they
were selected so far ahead did not de
velop. Among them were such repre
sentative democrats as Schreiber, Thom
azin, Johnson, Terwilliger, Nelson, H.
C. Carrig, Westfall, Clark, Schneider,
Moran, Campbell, Giles, C. J. Carrig,
Olson, Cox, Phillips, Gondring and
Then came tho nominations, begin
ning with that of G. W. Phillips for
county clerk, which was done by accla
mation, unanimously, after which Mr.
Phillips made a neat speech pledging
himself, as he had done two years ago,
to discharge the duties of the office, if
elected, to the best of his ability.
The same procedure was followed with
James Lynch for county treasurer.
When it came Kavanaugh's turn to be
re-nominated for sheriff, there was a no
or two, but it wasn't very heavy. Otto
Baker said Dan. would have to speak,
he had been two weeks preparing it.
Dan. got up in his place, like his two
predecessors, and thanked the conven
tion heartily for the nomination. He
assured them if he had done anything
to make an enemy it was through a
mistake, and not intentionally.
The re-nomination of M. M. Bothleit
ner for superintendent of public instruc
tion was made by acclamation and
unanimously and followed by a speech,
The nomination of RL Bossiter for
county surveyor was done after the ap
proved fashion, but Mr. Bossiter not
being present, there was no speech.
When it came to coroner, however,
there was opposition, Dr. Hohen getting
quite a number of votes but not suffi
cient to break the record of re-nominations,
and so A Heintz was placed upon
the ticket the vote being: Heintz 62,
Smart 11, Hohen 15.
The nomination of county judge was
not made so unanimously as the other,
and a ballot was sought through which
the delegates might better express their
exact will. Judge Hensley, the present
incumbent had the most votes, however,
ex-Judge Higgins having a portion of
several delegations the exact vote not
announced by the chair. And Hensley
walked to the platform remarking that
he hoped he had no enemies in the con
vention, but if he had, he wished to face
them. He dropped off into national
Siitiea, expressing exultant pride in
orton, in Bryan, "that second Clay,"
and in Cleveland, stating that Bryan
and Cleveland, agree perfectly. He also
detailed a conversation that Cleveland
had with Senator Allen in which the pres
ident remarked: "Senator, voa and I
