A corporation, to be known as the
Pan-American Railroad Company, has
filed articles of incorporation in Guthrie,
Oklahoma, with a capital of $250,000,
000. The purpose is to build a railroad
line from Hudson bay to Buenos Ayres
and Rio Janeiro. The entire extent of
the railroad will be about 10,000 miles.
The proposed road would be built
through North and South Dakota, Ne
braska and on to southern states.
A. UKATtt irum a moot peculiar caum
occurred at Creston, Iowa, on the 23d.
The 7-year-old daughter of John Ponte,
a Burlington conductor, was taken sick
ten days ago, with what physicians pro
nounced dysentery. In spite of their
best efforts the little one grew worse till
her death on the above date. An
autopsy revealed the fact that the child
had swallowed peas whole, that they had
sproated and were growing in her stom
ach. The case is said to be one of the
most peculiar on record.
Reliance, the American yacht, easily
won the first of the five races to be run
for the Queen's cup at Sandy Hook.
The match is to be decided by the best
three ont of five races to be sailed
Aagast 20, 22, 25, 27 and 29. Fifty-two
years ago last Saturday the yacht Am
erica in a race for a cup offered by
Queen Victoria won a prize which since
that day has become recognized as one
of the most highly sought trophy in the
yatching world. The couragous Com
modore Stevens, after many refusals,
was finally permitted to enter a contest
against English boats to be sailed around
the Isle of Wight, and so well did he
sail his yacht that the remark has be
come historical: "There was no second."
Daring the fifty-two years America has
held the trophy.
Three more libel suits growing out of
the hot congressional campaign of the
fall of 1902 between J. J. McCarthy and
J. S. Robinson, in the Third Nebraska
district have been filed in the courts of
Nebraska by Sioux City attorneys. The
plaintiff in all three actions is Thomas J.
Shelbley of Ponca, Nebraska, a promi
aeat republican and ex-county clerk
there, who asks the court for judgment
for $6,000 in each case. One of the
alleged libels was a publication printed
ia the Hartington Herald, and the pro
prietor of that paper, George L. Nelson,
is made the defendant in one of the suits.
Another suit is against William Huse,
editor of the Norfolk News, who is
alleged to have published a slanderous
article concerning Mr. Shelbley and his
coaaection with the campaign. Mr.
Shelbley favored Judge Robinson in the
campaign. The third suit is against
Franklin D. Fales of Ponca, chairman of
the congressional committee.
Lord Salisbury, one of England's
great statesman, died Saturday night
from Blight's disease at his home in
Hatfield. Lord Salisbury was four times
elected premier and rose from a condi
tion of poverty to that of wealth and
great honor. He was born February 10,
189a Ia 1857 he married a Miss Ander-
soa, daughter of a barrister, who rose to
bo a jadge. The connection was most
to the noble family into
she entered, for a barrister in
belongs to the middle class,
for years the future premier wi
wader the ban of his father. His allow
aace was anbefi tting his birth, though
the Sahabary fortune is enormous, and

DEMOCRATIC COUNTY CONVEN
TION. Monday saw many anxious democrats
on the streets early in the day, coming
in to take a hand in the county conven
tion. Candidates for the different offi
ces were busy among their friends and
enemies. No delegate went away hun
gry or thirsty, and were "glad-handed"
at every turn by the anxious office seek
ers before they had fairly pat feet oa
There had been many seekers for ev
ery oftce to be filled, but several dropped
out before convention hour rather than
face humiliation. The fight for office
was one of the fiercest ever held in the
H. J. Hendryx was chosen chairman,
J. H. Johannes, secretary and H. Luedt
ke of Creston, assistant secretary.
Edgar Howard introduced resolutions
which were adopted by the convention,
adopting the Kansas City platform, sup
porting Sullivan, Orimison, Hollenbeck,
Way and Becher, or in other words eve
ry elective office held by the democrats
above county officials.
After delegates were chosen for judi
cial and state conventions, W. N. Hens
ley was called upon and responded in a
speech, urging the unison of all demo
crats. Chris Gruenther was then nominated
for clerk of the district court by accla
mation, and then the trouble began.
The office of treasurer, at the final bal
lot, resulted in favor of D. Becher, receiv
ing 68 votes to L. Held's 63.
The office of sheriff was then brought
before the convention, and the first
informal vote taken when a committee
from the populists, who were in conven
tion assembled at the court house, res
pectfully asked the attention of the body
in regard to a division of the offices, but
the democrats, after considerable wrang
ling, proceeded to nominate C. J. Carrig,
he receiving 78 votes at the final ballot,
J. C Byrnes and Ed. Rossiter each being
mentioned as candidates.
The committee from the populist con
vention, Messrs. Byrnes, Fellers and
Dack, were then allowed to speak and
meekly asked that they be allowed to
name a candidate for one of the three
offices of sheriff, clerk or assessor. As
the sheriff had just been selected by the
democrats, they sent a messenger telling
them they would allow the assessor's
office to be named by them, providing he
be a man whom they could be free to
Judge Ratterman was then nominated
by acclamation to succeed himself as
The office of superintendent of schools
has been one of the hottest contested
positions on the ticket, L. H. Leavy, E.
C. Hicks, M. Rothleitner and Prof.
Whitehead being candidates, but in the
final vote Leavy captured the nomina
tion with 67 votes. Whitehead following
with 37, and Hicks 27, Rothleitner throw
ing his vote to Hicks in the final
R. L. Rossiter for surveyor and Dr.
Metz for coroner were unanimously
chosen by the convention.
The names of John Graf, Gus Speice
and John Becher were brought before
the convention for the office of county
clerk, but the two last named gentlemen
stated they were not candidates for the
position. Nevertheless Speice received
51 votes, Graf taking the remaining 80
vntaa wtitnti Aanaad hilt nomination.
J. W. Bender was chosen representa
tive to take the place of D. Becher, who
resigned in order to work for the election
of county treasurer.
At this time the populists reported
their choice of assessor to be John Gal
ley, and immediately a storm was raised
by the Humphrey delegation, which had,
as was afterward developed, chosen a
man for that office, and intended to fight
for him. They were assured that Mr.
Galley was a man whose character could
not be questioned and after a heated
discussion, the populists' one candidate
Jonas Welch was chosen chairman of
the central committee and Chris Gruen
ther secretary, after which the conven
COLUMBUS AND GRAND ISLAND.
The preliminaries to the campaign in
Nebraska will be completed by holding
the bifurcated fusion state conventions
this Tuesday, the democrats at Colum
bus and the populists at Grand Island.
The holding of the conventions at differ
ent places, although simultaneously,
seems to the ontsider a little awkward,
but it was hoped by the planners to pro
duce at least some appearance of inde
Everybody in Nebraska, however, per
fectly understands the purpose. The
plan is to continue this year the fusion
which has been carried on for years. No
one has any doubt the plan will be car
ried out although there may be consid
erable bellowing over the longdistance
'phone between Columbus and Grand
Island. The populists, all that are left
of them, have hardly any choice, under
the circumstances. The old-line sincere
populist element is confused and non
plussed by the reorganization of the dem
ocratic party, but their actual leadership
is in the hands of men who have axes to
grind. They will undoubtedly fuse.
Those republican leaders in Nebraska
who view fusion this year with satisfac
tion are wise and far-sighted. There are
some localities, a number of counties, in
which fusion will defeat the republican
tickets, although the number of these
will be smaller this year than heretofore.
But even in these, loyal republicans may
have the assurance that the situation is
such that continuation of fusion now
clinches the republican hold on Nebraska
beyond a peradventure for a long time
in the future and practically disposes of
the populist party.
So here's to the Columbus and Grand
Island fnsionists a gay convention time.
It is the last fun they are likely to have
on such an occasion. Lincoln Star.
THIRTY-TWO STATES FOR
The Omaha Bee expresses the opinion
of the great public in the following
The republicans of thirty-two states
have declared in favor of the nomination
of President Roosevelt by the national
convention of 1901. In every instance
this pronouncement has been made with
nnanimity and enthusiasm. It is a most
remarkable illustration of the president's
popularity and of the hold be has upon
the esteem and confidence of his party.
Why this is so is well expressed in the
Isagasge of the Nebraska republican
platform, which declares "that the admin-
: istration of our national affairs and oar
negotiations with foreign nations are
being conducted by a courageous repab
lican president, who knows no fear, who
courts no favor, but who loves peace
crowned with honor, and in whose charge
we have a feeling of perfect safety and
security." This is the feeling of repub
licans in every state of the union where
there is loyalty to republican principles
and policies and these are held to be
superior to all mere local considerations.
POPULIST COUNTY CONVENTION.
While the democrats were ia session
in Orpheus hall Monday afternoon, the
populists met in the court house.
E. E. Fellers was chosen temporary
chairman and L L. Albert permanent
chairman of the convention, with W. H.
Speeches were made by L L. Albert,
James Kiernan and William Schelp dur

Wallaces' Farmer makes an earnest
appeal to the farmers to save all their
corn crop, claiming that from present
indications feed for all stock will be very
scarce the coming winter; nothing but
good hot weather can save the greater
portion. We quote the following from
last week's issue: "Theoorn fields, under
any circumstances will have some value;
therefore, the entire value should be
secured. This can be done only by har
vestina the corn crop. Therefore, we
urge our readers to get ready. If you
can buy a corn harvester, buy one. If
you can not, get a sled. If you do not
like that, get a corn knife, but by all
means harvest this corn crop. Make use
of all the crop instead of part of it Ina
large per cent of the crop the fodder may
possibly be the greatest part of it Why
do we urge this? Partly because it is
always wise to gather up the fragments
that nothing be lost If theoorn crop
is as short as it is likely to be, corn will
be very high this year and cattle will
have to be brought through on clover
and timothy bay, of which wo have a
mod crop, and corn fodder. It will be a
great calamity to the entire Mississippi
valley if by reason of a shortage of feed
cattle would have to be rushed to the
market in great numbers. This wonld
create a shortage, as it did in 189, that
wonld require two or three years at least
to overcome. Fortunately, the pastures
are good and are likely to be good until

new features have been added, including
one of the most prominent troupes of
acrobats in the country. Fargo, Duke

wonderful and the educated seals are
appearing in new and novel feats of skill.

bition at which time the entire company

The inspection took place last Wed
nesday of the Columbus canal route by
expert engineers who were accompanied
by L. D. Richards of the Fremont canal
company and Mr. Vincent of Sioux City,
an engineer contractor who located the
Northwestern railroad through Iowa,
and by H. E. Baboock and several other
Columbus gentlemen. The party arrived
here Tuesday evening from Fremont and
early the following morning were taken
to the Loup river about two miles east
of Columbus where the tail race will
touch the river and from there to the
power house site, the grounds for the
reservoirs, inspecting the side hill por
tion of the canal line to the point where
the water is taken from the river. The
gentlemen did not express themselves
openly in regard to the comparison with
the Fremont project but it was generally
understood by the Columbus people
that they were tavorsMyampreased with
this plant and Mr. Baboock is pleased
with the present outlook. Among the
party of engineers were the following
gentlemen: Dr. John F. Kelley of the
Kelley engineering company, a man who
has been at the bead of many of the
great power plants constructed on
the Pacific coast, and who is a specialist
in long distance power transmission, one
development being taken 224 miles from
the power. Mr. Kelley is one of the
engineers engaged to choose between the
Columbus aad Fremont plants. Soott
King of Omaha, chief engineer of the
South Omaha stock yards was in the
party; C. V. Vorce with the Kelley com
pany of New York and J. Kloman a civil
engineer of New York, They all left on
an afternoon train for the east The
engineers for the Fremont canal state
that it will take aboat three weeks to
complete their report, and the parties
chosen to decide on the two plans will
have about five weeks longer to make
