The Peter Smith mill on Shell Creek

R. Eummer is placing more new
machinery in his Clear Creek mill and

mill will be in condition to turn out a
great deal more flour.
From here Wednesday last was

It is hardly supposable that good
Nebraska land will ever be cheaper than
it is today, and it is coming to be seen
that the farmer who has a good tract of
land, is free from debt, and moderately
knowing and industrious, is about as
secure in his hold upon the real good
things of earth as anybody, anywhere.
Mr. Ulrich Langenegger and Mrs.

Mrs. Gus Lockner and daughter
Elsie, who had been visiting friends in
the city, return to their home at Omaha
today, Wednesday, after a very pleasant

ment It is not only paying all running
expenses, but it is going to be able to pay

A South Omaha judge has decided
that, under a city ordinance in vogue,
which required that dealers take out
license to sell "milk and cream," a far

to sell buttermilk to the South Omahans
at 10 cents a gallon if he was compelled
to pay $25 a year for a permit
Washington Corrington of Peoria,
accounted the wealthiest farmer in
Illinois, a man eighty-five years old,
advises the young thus: "Be saving.
The young man of today has fifty
chances to get rich and make money to
one in my time. Then, after you have
started out right and saved a few dol
lars, specialize. Start out and do one
thing and stick to it, but first be sure to
find out what you are fitted tor. After
that it ia easy sailing."
Miss Martha Johnson, formerly min
ister of the Baptist church at Platte

The game of base ball Snnday at
Higgina' grove, between the Butter
Boys and the Grocer Lads, is said to
have been the best game of the season,
in these parts, the score six to five in
favor of the Grocer Lads. "Turkey"
Hagel put out Galley on a double play,
but he had to fall down. If the Butter
Boys had had a can of buttermilk at
the third base, they might have made it
even. Another game will be played
next Sunday.
In an account of the gold-medal
contest at the Fremont Normal, wherein
seven young women contested, the Trib
une has the following in regard to a
Platte county young lady: "An excel
lently prepared oration on Truttr was
delivered by Miss Jessie Maw in a very
pleasant manner, though she was not
heard at all times in the rear of the
room. Her thought was very strong and
well connected." The Normal school
graduated 124 pupils last week.

The North Bend correspondent of
the Fremont Tribune sajs: "J. S.
Thompson, chemist at Roberts' drug
store, has been analyzing the water from
deep and shallow wells in town. He
finds four grains of impurity to the gal
lon in deep wells and twenty-six grains

The Union Pacific Pioneers of Oma
ha took their annual outing Saturday,
going to Grand Island. They were

Their train of sixteen cars was elab

women and children seemed to be having
a very enjoyable time of it, when they
passed through at 11 o'clock. The mag
nificent band favored Columbus with
one of their excellent selections of
music, during their brief stop here.

all who attend.

human race of his time a very long
distance from the flail and the barn-floor

course, an automatic band-cutter and
feeder, an elevator for the grain and a
device for automatic weighing of it be

least, a shifting stacker.
Early Wednesday morning Adolph
Berger of this city boarded a box car to
go to Omaha. After he got in, three
tramps came in also, and one of them
shortly interviewed him as to whether
he had money. He answered that he
had fifty cents; but it seemed the trio
were not satisfied, and before Benton
was reached, they went through his
clothes and got $31 that he had intend
ed to invest in broom corn, and then
jumped the train, and of course escaped.
Mr. Berger got off at Schuyler and meet
ing the tall editor (John Sprecher) he
told him his story, when Sprecher says:
"Berger, did they take all you had?"
"Yes, every cent" was the answer.
"Well, here's fifty cents for you to get
home on," was Sprecher's proffer, and
Berger was very much gratified to find
a stranger so quick to appreciate his
situation, and he probably will never
forget the tall editor.
It is quite astonishing the prices
calves are bringing this summer. They
go off at a flash now at prices for which
cows would have been a very slow sale
a few years ago. It was a very difficult
if not an impossible thing at that time
to convince a great many cattle owners
that things would ever again be very
different from what they were then with
the cattle business. But all branches of
the live stock business have their ups
and downs, and just at the present the
cattle business is having one of its ups.
The present condition comes about
mainly from a scarcity of cattle in the
country, but an abundance of cheap feed.
Stackers and feeders ore apt to be held
at too high a figure for a safe investment,
and yet there is a sort of balance wheel
in this feeding business. If a man can
not buy cattle to suit himself he can try
sheep. There ought to be some money
in feeding sheep this winter, and the
more sheep that are brought into the
state to feed the easier it ought to be to
secure cattle at a safe figure, The Ne
braska Farmer.

The republican county convention was
called to order at 2:30 p. m. Monday, at
Maennerchor hall, by W. A. McAllis
ter, chairman of the county central com
mittee. He spoke briefly of the outlook since
the incubus of the democratic party of
the past four years had been removed
by the election of Wm. McKinley. The
better times are here and the price of
wheat is going up, up, up, while that of
silver is going down, down, down, a dis
appointing thing to Billy Bryan, but
satisfactory to the public at large. He
amid that republicans should nominate
a good ticket, stand by it to a man, and
success will be the result All should
stand together and work for the ticket
till the close of the polls. In our city
we have a man who is honored all over
the state of Nebraska as the supreme
judge and we ought today to pass rous
ing resolutions in favor of his renomina
tion. On motion of Ed. Hoare, John Tan
nahill was nominated for temporary
chairman. On motion of J. D. Stires, J.
T. Morris was nominated. A standing
vote showed Morris 36, Tannahill 32.
Mr. Morris in taking the chair said he
didn't want to make a speech, it is suf
ficient that we feel and realize that we
are living under times of protection and

Cookingham of Humphrey said he
would like to hear from the committee
in regard to the delegation from Gran
ville. Chairman Ragatz replied that
only one set of credentials had been
presented to the committee. There cer
tainly must be some mistake; they must
be there or else some one has taken
them, and he was sure no republican
would take what didn't belong to him.
On retiring to the committee room,
the contest papers were found and the
committee reported, recommending the
adoption of the report as read, which
was done, after a speech pending the
motion by Cookingham arraigning the
action of the alleged ring in the ranks of
the party carrying it to the Bartleys and
the Moores. The same ring combined
to cover the embezzler in Platte county,

convention assembled, with pride in
this being the home of our esteemed
fellow-citizen, A. M. Post, in his integ
rity and ability and exceptional fitness
for the position of supreme judge, ad
mitted by all. Now this being the year
that his term of office expires, we
earnestly desire his renomination and
election, and hereby ask him to name
the delegation from this county to the
republican state convention to be held
at Lincoln, August 26, 1897.
Spoerry said that by the adoption of
this resolution we would surrender body
and soul to one man. This is the cen
tralization of power. He didn't believe
in surrendering before making a fight
It is a disgrace to the republicans of the
county to think of surrendering their
right to name their representatives in
this matter to one man, who has shown
himself, by his suit against a lady school'
teacher, not to be fit for constable.
Ragatz said that whatever may be
said of Judge Post, it most be acknowl
edged by all that he has made a good
judge. It is only common courtesy to
allow him to name the delegation. It is
the Terr least you can do, and it should

be done cheerfully.
Stires moved that
the resolution be
laid on the table. On this there was
more talk by Hoare and Whitmoyer,
when Evans called the attention of the
chairman that the motion was not de
batable. A call of the townships wa9 made on
this motion and it was lost by a small
Stires called for a division of the res
olution, so that the sense of the conven
tion could be expressed fully and freely
on the different parts, the latter para
graph, viz., asking Judge Post to name
the delegates, being the objectionable
part, and moved as a substitute, the
resolution with the last clause omitted.
Ragatz insisted that the resolution
was introduced by him in good faith,
and it was nothing more than custom
ary and right.
Spoerry said that it was something
like the prescription of a doctor, if he
says I shall take quinine with whiskey,
I have a right to object to-the quinine.
Woosley said there was no disposition
to find fault with Judge Post for what
he has done on the supreme bench.
This convention was called for the pur
pose of electing delegates to the state
convention to represeut the views of
Platte county republicans, not only on
the nomination of a supreme judge but
on other matters important to the party.
It is evident here by the action already
taken that there are a large number of
delegates who have shown their dis
pleasure at that part of the resolution
which delegates all their rights to one
person. They have a right to still fur
ther show their displeasure. He hadn't
any doubt of Judge Post's nomination
nor of his election, and there was no
man who would more ardently support
him than he, but he objected to this
method as unrepubhean, and objection
able to many of the adherents of Judge
Post in this convention.
Ragatz thought it wonld be a shame
to vote the resolution down.
Whitmoyer said that the right of the
convention to ask Mr. Post to name the
delegation had been challenged. Time
and time again this has been done. In
this particular case there ought to be
less objection and for this particular
reason. Platte county has no candidate
for any other office on the state ticket,
there are only two regents, and if we are
in earnest, we will honor ourselves and
take a stand before the state by the
adoption of this resolution entire. He
didn't care who got up here and howled,
we would honor ourselves and do jus
tice to everybody.
Drake said that republicans felt proud
of the record of Judge Post on the
bench, but there was also a strong feel
ing against allowing any one man to
select this delegation, and he believed it
was to the interest of Judge Post that
the substitute be adopted.
Shannon said that the fight was
against the machine. There are a host
of republicans who are tired of it the
year in and year out, being brow-beaten
and pushed into line by Ed. Hoare;
that if the resolution passed Ed. Hoare
would really name the delegates. It is
a question of whether the machine shall
run the republicans of Platte county or
whether they shall run themselves.
Hoare said that if those opposing the
resolution wanted to beat Judge Post,
they ought to come right out We are
not here to beg of Mr. Shannon. He's
got it in for me simply because I was
not in favor of him for district court
clerk, etc.
After a few further remarks by Ragatz
and Spoerry, Judge Post stepped to the
front and said that he would ask to be
heard for a moment; that he had had
nothing to do with local matters of ap
pointment; that be had not recommen
ded but one man for appointment, and
that he had been promptly turned down
by the powers that be; that under no
circumstances could be consent to name
the delegation unless authorized to do
so by a unanimous vote, or practically
so, and requested his friends to with
draw the resolution.
On the motion to lay the substitute
resolution on the table, the vote was
taken by townships and carried.
Immediately came the vote upon the
resolution entire, the result of which we
give, as follows:
The entire delegations voting for the
resolution were Walker, Shell Creek,
Grand Prairie, Lost Creek, Burrows,
St Bernard, Woodville, which with 3
from second ward, 2 third, 2 Columbus

made 59.

were first ward, Creston, Humphrey,

I from second ward, 7 third, 3 Columbus
