The stage presented the appearance of
a huge bank of flowers and tbe'draping

among the drapery of the flag.
Before the call tp order, word came
from the populists who were holding,
their convention in Grand Island, that
Judge Sullivan had been nominated by
'them for the 'office of supreme judge.
The convention was called to order by
P. L. Hall, chairman of the state 'com
mittee and Rev. Cash of the Episcopal
church offered prayer. Edgar Howard
in his felicitous way welcomed the guests
to the city, Mayor Becher having select
ed Mr. Howard to take his place. Dr.
Hall -responded briefly on behalf of the
convention after which the call was. read
by G. W. Phillips, who has been .chosen

Mr. Bryan was called upon for a
speech and instead of responding at that
time, he introduced Matbew Wyvall of
Ithaca, N. Y., who was present as the
guest of Mr. Bryan. Mr. Wyvall is a
young man, and a student of Cornell
university. After Mr. Wyvall had fin

W. L Allen of Schuyler then nominat
ed Judge Sullivan for chief justice and
W. J, Bryan seconded the nomination.
The nomination was made by acclama
tion, by a rising vote, and was followed
by loud cheers and calls for a speech. '
Mr. Sullivan gave a splendid speech,
thanking the convention for .his. re-nom
ication and pledging himself to do what
he considers right at all times.
Word had been received from the pop
ulists at Grand Island that they had
nominated for university regents, Wil
liam O. Jones of Adams and Dr.E.O.
Weber of Saunders. These gentlemen
were chosen as unanimously the choice
of the democrats and the convention
then adjourned at the late honr of 1230,

When the local fusion organ asserts
that the democratic convention --nomi
nated for the supreme bench the ablest,
most learned' and most generally trusted
jurist who has ever graced that tribunal
it simply exhibits its natural tendency
to slop over. Judge Sullivan is an able
jarist, bat there are others off and on
the supreme bench and there have been
others before his day. The Nebraska
supreme bench has been graced by such
brilliant and learned jurists as William
Little and Oliver Perry Mason, and such
able and trusted exponents of law as
Gahtt, Reese and Maxwell, each of whom
was the peer of John J. Sullivan, to say
nothing of his colleagues, Silas A. Hol

The state board of education has fin
ished its, tour of inspection of the sites
offered for the location of the new west
ern normal school and the members re
turned to their homes Saturday. There
are fifteen towns after the school and
each has offered special inducements and
reasons for' its being the most likely
place for an institution of learning of
this kind. The state board will meet
today, Tuesday, at Pern, in regular busi
ness session, preliminary to the opening
of the fall term of the Peru normal. At
tHis meeting the site for the new school
will be decided upon and the state arch
itect ordered to prepare plans for the
new buildings, provided that a site with
building is not decided upon.
Judge Suujvas in his speech of
acceptance before the democratic state
convention lest Tuesday said: The
candidate of the republican party is my
personal friend. ?He is; a 'worthy and
generous rivaL and I bespeak for him at
your hands fair and courteous treatment.
Let the campaign be conducted on a
high plane, in a temperate spirit, and in
accordance -with the humane doctrine
that ;a. man does not forfeit his civil
rights and become an outlaw by running
for office." With these remarks of Judge
Sullivan before them,. the democrats
have little excuse for abuse of Judge

Columbus presents such a Dretty.clean
and wholesome view from the trsfa thatj
passengers are tempted to end their jour
ney right there and settle down., , , ,
' t i e v. J I I i i
most prosperous cities in Nebraska, Ev
erything betokenalaoUd growth. It if
pleasure to go about the streets. Thougf
located in what rwae once a prairie, wl
within the border of the fabled "Great
American Desert" CoIumbM ! now
thoroughly afforested the streets and
private grounds lined with handsome
trees and comfortable with umbrageous
wealth. It is a city,- now, of 4JSOQ ,iaj-
habitants, whose homes: for neatness
and modern appearance are not surpass
ed. If the town be searched you will
hardly find an unpainted cottage, nor
one so humble that it.is not bright with:
flowers and pleasant with green lawn'
and shrubs. The business center is of
almost solid brick buildings, with every
suggestion outside and inside of equally
Columbus is the center of a. splendid.
agricultural district. The 'farmers are
wealthy and independent. Platte coun
ty is one of the very best in the state.
Somehow or other this is a democratic
Gibraltar. In twenty years the republic
.cans have seldom carried 4ne county,
having within that time elected for one
term each a county judge, a sheriff, a
clerk and a treasurer. The democratic,
majority, usually has been something
like 400, although of course varying on
Columbus has a beautiful park right
where it ought to be, in the center of the
business part of the city. The lawn is
perfectly kept, gay with flowers and well
shaded, with iron seats everywhere for
the accommodation of all comers. Why,
in the name of common sense, dont Lin
coln and the larger pities of the 'west,
have parks, or at least a park where they
would be of real use that is to say, near
the center of population?
The arrangements for the convention
were admirable. All the citizens took
pains to make delegates and visitors
comfortable. G. W. Phillips and Edgar
Howard had charge of entertainment and
arrangements and were as indefatigable
as effective. It would be a mighty, good
investment for the larger cities, when
convention crowds come, to show some
of the spirit of appreciation and hospi
tality which was so agreeably conspicu
ous at Columbus, whether they share that
spirit or not. The glad hand is every
way better than the itching palm. You
can bet your sweet life on this.
Columbus by its fine hospitality and
provision for all' comers at this conven
tion has rendered far from easy the task
of the next town which may be ohosen
as the place for a like meeting. Lin
coln Star (rep.)
A. L. Bixby devotee a half column to
historical incidents.of the city and adds
that "in spite of the old factional, or
rather sectional prejudice that used to
prostrate every effort to secure public
improvements in Columbus, things have
been doing in the last ten years that give
assurance that the future of that little
city is assured. The people at last have
found out that business can be transact
ed on both sides of the railroad track at
the same time, and that whatever helps
to make a city of Columbus is a- good
thing for everybody who does business
in the corporate limits. That the people
have enterprise is proven, by the fact
that they have a. high aohool .building
costing twenty-five thousand dollars, an
opera house of the same value,' and the
will to construct a court house. costing
f 100,000 whenever the people of Platte
county have grace to vote the bonds."
Company K returned Monday night
from York where they had been at camp
since last Wednesday. There were with
the company thirty-one men besides the
three officers. Although it rained the
first night they were there, they exper
ienced little inconvenience, as the camp
was located on elevated grounds with
clay soil. They report the sanitary con
dition excellent, which was under the
direction of C. D. Evans. The good
discipline of the company is shownby
the fact that not one of the men served
any time in the guard house. In drill
our boys were above the average. There
were at the camp 12 infantry companies;
1 cavalry; 1 artillery and 1 hospital
corps. The boys all came back well and
pleased with the outing.
Friday's Genoa Leader says: Co
lumbus police reported to the city mar
shal this morning that they had an
Indian boy and a boy who gave his name
as Hoffman, in the lockup for vagrancy,
and that the boys claimed they were
only the advance guard of a band of
bandits from this town that was start
ing out on a foraging expedition. They
gave the names of some other kids who
were to start this morning to join them
and while the marshal was notifying
their parents a couple succeeded in
getting away and were seen hoofing it
down the railroad track. The police at
both Monroe and Columbus are watch
ing forthem, and will send them back
to their mothers Mr. Truman reports
to us this morning that 4J29 inches of
rain has fallen ia this section in the
past thirty-six hours, and who knows if
the end is yet?
The amount of precipitation here
last week was something phenomenal for
Nebraska. It began with a shower
Monday and ended with a downpour
Thursday, the. greatest amount falling
on Wednesday which was 2.48 inches,
and the total for theweek was 5.11 inches.
As a result of the heavy rains about one
mile of the Union Pacific railroad track
was washed out between Schuyler and
Rogers, near the mouth of Shell creek
on Friday morning, no trains were able
to pass until Saturday. Soese of the
passengers were transferred by walking
