The school system of Nebraska is too
important an institution to be placed in
the hands of an incompetent man. The
future of the state is being moulded
daily in the school room, and the Super
intendent of Public Instructions must
be possessed of two qualifications.
First, he must be an educator himself.
Second, he must be possessed of execu
tive ability to enable him to so conduct
educational affairs of the state as to
make the school system what it should
be, viz, the corner stone of the state.
That J. F. Saylor, the republican candi
date, possesses these two qualifications
in the highest degree is not to be ques
tioned. Vote for him and you can rest
assured that the schools of Nebraska
will be placed in good hands. Falls
It is good to know that men have not
lost their reason or their reasonableness,
because often they make such fools of
thnmwdvea. esneciallv in nolitics. At
the Saratoga conference the other day
some eastenTdelegate made a statement
reflecting on the conduct of tho war.
Immediately, E. H. Bacon of Georgia, a
prominent democrat, sprang to his feet
and said: "I fought in the rebel army,
and I never scratched the democratic
ticket in my life, but I would feel that I
had been a coward and afraid of my
duty if I failed to resent that imputation
against the administration of President
McKinley. This is not the time nor the
place for any such insinuation as the
gentleman has uttered. Although I
was a rebel and am a Democrat, I want
to express my entire satisfaction with
the courageous and wholly just and
sensible manner in which President
McKinley has conducted this war, and I
want to add that it is not only my per
sonal conviction. The entire South
feels as I do. I live with the people of
the South, and I know."
They Nominated Hollenbeck.
The democrats and populists of the
Sixth judicial district met in delegate
conventions in this city last Wednes
day, the democratic delegates at the
court house, the populists at tho fife
men's hall, and held an all-night session,
a nomination not being reached until
half past five Thursday morning.
The democratic convention was or
ganized temporarily by electing Hens
ley of Platte for chairman and Winter
stein of Dodge secretary.
The committee on credentials was
Speice of Platte, Thompson of Nance,
Smails of Dodge, Sparks of Merrick and
Doughty of Colfax.
Van Horn was elected chairman and
A committee of conference was ap
pointed who were to inform the popu
lists that the right to name a democrat
would be claimed. The committee
were: Hollenbeck, Sparks, Cuba, Greun
ther and Thompson.
The committee agreed to rules adopt
ed by the state conventions.
Balloting then began, the result of
each ballot being sent to the populist
convention, and their action awaited.

bert 12, Thomas 15.
Later along Gondring received all the
votes, except Nance county, instructed
for Albert, the populists all the while
sending back 20 for Albert, 13 for Sparks .
Later along Thomas was nominated
by the democrats.
Then Sparks was unanimously named
by the democrats, but the populists re
turned 20 for Albert, 13 for Thomas.
Judge Albert withdrew from the race
and shortly afterward, Mr. Hollenbeck
was nominated by both conventions.
C. C. Hollenbeck is a resident of Fre
mont, and regarded as an attorney of
ability. He was not a candidate at this
time, but supposed to be on the list for

asked for an additional cruiser and bat

The last Spanish garrisons at Hicos

JAguinaldo went to Lelellcs on Friday.
He has announced-his intention of con
vening an .assembly .of the Filipinos on
Sept. 15, in order to decido upon the pol
icy to be adopted by the insurgents.
The correspondent here of the Asso
ciated Press has had an interview with
Aguinaldo who said there were G7.000
insurgents armed with rifles. He added
he could raise 100,000 men. Indeed, the
insurgent leader pointed out, the whole
population of the Philippine islands was
willing to fight for their independence.
Continuing, Aguinaldo said ho had 9,000
military prisoners, including 5,000 in the
vicinity of Manila, besides civil prison
ers. Later Aguinaldo said the "provi
sional government' was now operating
28 provinces.. He asserted that on
August 2d they elected delegates in
numbers proportionate to the population.
As to the Americans, Aguinaldo re
marked that he considered them as
brothers and. that :the two sovereign
republics were allied against a common
The insurgent leader denied having
received a request from General Otis
and Rear Admiral Dewey to withdraw
his troops to a prescribed distance from
Manila and Cavite and he declined to
discuss the effect of such request.
Aguinaldo farther asserted that, he had
never confided with the American au
thorities since the capitulation of Man
ila, and he had never authorized the in
surgents to search or disarm Americans
crossing the lines.
The whole interview conveyed the
impressiod that Aguinaldo desires abso
lute independence, regards the mission
of the Americans here as accomplished
and expects their withdrawal just as
the French with Lafayette withdrew
after helping the Americans in the war
of independence, a war of humanity.
Just now Aguinaldo maintains the
role of extreme friendship. -
Should Keep Philippines.
Washington, Sept. 18. Mr. Charles
Denby, former minister of the United
States to China, arrived here from
Pekin, and in the afternoon paid his re
spects to the president. On leaving the
White house Mr. Denby, in answer to
inquiries, said that in his judgment the
United States should retain perma
nently the possession of all or practic
ally all of the Philippine islands. To
surrender them to Spain would be only
to invite a controversy and possibly a
war among tne European nations for
their possession, and if the United
States is to make effort to secure any
considerable portion of the markets of
the far east, the Philippines would be
of very great advantage to us.
To Avert: Resignation.
London, Sept. 13. The Paris corre
spondent of the Times suggests that the
second of the two cabinet councils held
Monday was called specially to avert the
immediate resignation of General Zur
linden, minister for war, who had re
signed could not have accompanied M.

spondent understands that as M. Sarreu,
minister of justice, has consented to re
consider the Dreyfus "dossier," Gen
eral Zurlindeu will postpone bis resigna

era. The Paris correspondent of the

Chairman Richardson, of the Southeast'

ing will be held in this city Tuesday,

determined in any case to reach an
agreement for the wiping out of excess
ive commissions all over the country.

Washington, Sept.. ,l3.-The "navy
department has arrive' at what- it re
gards as a fair and satisfactory: settle
ment of the question of awarding the)
contracts for the costftrootion of. the
three battleships. ' When tho bids were
opened it was found that for -the fast
ships desired the Newport News com
pany was the lowest. Cramps next and
the Union Iron works just above, all
within the limit of cost affixed by the
act of congress. It -was the. original
plan to award the 'contracts in, that
order. But upon examination of .the
plans submitted by the bidders it was .
found that the only thoroughly satis
factory one was that submitted by
Cramp, who had simply taken the alter
nate plans suggested by the navy de
partment, which amounted to lenghten
ing the hull of the ships from 15 to 20
feet, in order to gain room for the more
powerful engines required to drive the '
ship at a speed of 18 1-4 knots, instead j
of 16 knots as first proposed. After con- j
sidering the subject in all aspects, the j
board of naval bureau chiefs has hit ,
upon a -solution of the question. They
have invited the Newport News com- j
pany and the Union Iron works to ,
amehd then plans so as to make their
ships identical with that proposed by
Cramp. Mr. Scott of the California
company, has agreed to do this already
and the representatives of the Newport
News company has verbally agreed to
do the same, so it is the understanding
that each of the companies will be given
a contract for one ship.

preparations are being made to break up
this camp at once by sending home all

ing of the officers in command. Gen
eral Shaf ter said last week that 6,000 or
7,000 men would be kept here, at least un
til October.and this was supposed to have
been the order of Secretary Alger. An
officer said today that when General

him, saying that his order was contrary
to that of Secretary Alger, and Miles re
plied: "Never mind what Alger says, I
am in command now."
Orders were received from the war
department today ordering two regi
ments of the United States regular
troops away from Camp Wikoff, Mon
tauk. They are the Twelfth infantry,
which is ordered to Jefferson Barracks,
Missouri, and the Twenty -second infan
try, which goes to Fort Crook, Nebraska,

Sax Juan, Porto Rico, Sept. 13. The
two evacuation commissions held an
hours' session yesterday and adjourned
untiltoday.. The American com
missioners made' known their position
regarding the evacuation and transfer
of the island, in accordance with their
instructions from Washington. These
instructions they decline to make pub
lic at present, as publicity might lead
to embarrassment in negotiations; but
the Spanish commissioners did not dis
close their positions nor the nature of
their instructions. Manifestly,- how
ever, wilungnsss to secure as much ex
pedition as possible and our commis-.
sioners are satisfied with the way which
their demands have been informally re
ceived. The adjournment gives the
Spaniards time to prepare their reply.
When that is concluded issues will be
joined and the situation became clear.
What effect, if any, the appearanco of
yellow fever among the troops at Ponce
will have, is problematical. Should the
fever spread, it would doubtless induce
the American commissioners, to hasten
evacuation to the utmost; but as yet
there is not the slightest reason to ex
