in citizenship and politics. I believe a
great wave of corruption is sweeping
over this country, and I am sorry to say
it is in the democratic party as well as in
the republican. There must be a raising
of the moral ideals of both parties."

Wednesday afternoon when the repub
lican county convention was called to
order by chairman F. M. Cookingham of
Humphrey who made a short enthusi
astic speech saying that he was glad to
see so many of the staunch, true repub
licans present and declaring that the
party never had brighter prospects for
electing their candidates, and he believed
that the "Grand Old Party" would nom
inate men who would go forth to victory
in the fall.
D. N. Newman, secretary of the con
vention, read the call and the regular
business was then taken up.
Garrett Hulst nominated William
Smith of Lost Creek township for treas
urer, introducing him to the convention
as a man who was always a loyal repub
lican, who had lived nearly all his life in
this county, whose reputation for hon
esty would assure the public that their
funds would be handled with care and
he would administer to their wants with
greatest pleasure. Mr. Smith was chosen
by the convention by acclamation.
Dr. Frank of Monroe placed the name
ot Harry Lamb of Burrows township
before the convention as candidate for
the office of clerk of the district court,
and the rules were suspended and he
was nominated by acclamation. Mr.
Lamb is a young man who has been a
successful teacher in the county, is a
graduate of the Fremont Normal, has
taken post-graduate work in Omaha and
the past year has been attending the
Omaha medical college. Mr. Lamb is a
gentleman who is competent in every way
to fill the important office of clerk of
Sidney Eastman of Creston placed in
nomination the name of J. L. Sharrar of
Creston and Fred Dasenbrock of Sher
man township seconded the motion and
said that he knew Mr. Sharrar to be an
honest, upright man who had many
friends in the north part of the county
who would give him a strong vote. Mr.
Sharrar then received the unanimous
vote of the convention as the nominee
Thomas Howard of Lindsay was then
mentioned by W. A. McAllister as a
nominee for county clerk. Mr. Brodball
told the convention that he had known
Mr. Howard for many years, that he had
been a farmer near Lindsay and a grain
buyer in the town for twenty-five years.
Mr. Brodball said Mr. Howard would
receive a large vote in the north part of
the county as he had many friends. Mr.
Howard was also nominated by accla
There were more candidates named for
county judge, O. C. Shannon mentioning
IL W. Hobart, J. R. Brock naming O. C.
Shannon and C. Kramer placing before
the convention the name of J. M. Curtis.
Each gentleman in turn declined to
accept the nomination, and the conven
tion passed to other nominations until
later in the day when they named C. J.
Garlow. This gentleman has since re
fused to make the race.
Fred Dasenbrock of Sherman town
ship then introduced Ed. Lueschen of
Sherman township as a candidate for the
office of assessor, and A. Peterson of
Lindsay and David Schupbach of Colum
bus were also named for the office. A
vote by townships was taken which
resulted in the following: Lueschen
G84, Peterson 23 and Schupbach 15,
and Mr. Lueschen was duly declared the
nominee of the convention.
Prof. I. H. Britell of Columbus was
then unanimously chosen candidate for

for surveyor, B. R. Cowdery of Hum

We, the republican delegates of Platte
county, Nebraska, in convention assem
bled, do hereby express our approval of
the policy of President Roosevelt in the
administration ot public affairs, and
congratulate the country in having such
a ieariesB, honest, capable and patnotic
statesman at the head of our national
We are pleased and proud of the firm
stand taken by the president in dealing
with our foreign relations, by which he
has impressed upon the governments of
Europe and Asia the fact that the voice
of the great western republic must be
hearkened to, and its influence in shap
ing the policies of government in our
new possessions seriously considered.
We further express our conviction that
President Roosevelt in carrying out the
policies advocated by our lamented,
great and good President McKinley,
have added materially to the prestige,
glory and renown of our common coun
try. We fully approve of the firm and
impartial stand taken by him in the
many controversies arising between
capital and labor, and his earnest desire
to bring about a just and honorable set
tlement of these important questions.
We furthermore earnestly desire his
nomination and election as president of
the United States in 1904, believing that
the same would be conducive to the
welfare, prosperity and glory of our
: ' JUDICIAL CONVENTION.
The publican judicial convention of
the Sixth district was held last Thurs-
I day afternoon in the city 'council rooms.
J. D. Stires called the meeting to order
and J. C. Martin of Merrick county was
made temporary chairman and George
Rose of Nance temporary secretary.
After the credentials were read the tem
porary organization was made perman
ent " Mr. Martin was then called npon
for a speech to which he responded, put
ting forth the importance to the people
of having judges on the 'district bench
who favor no one. He also urged that
the republicans stand firmly by their
candidates. R. J. Stinson ot Fremont
and J. G. Reader of this city were then
chosen unanimously for the republican
candidates for district judges.
Judge Stinson was called to address
the delegates. In his speech he stated
that he was not altogether surprised by
the action taken by the delegates. His
friends had found elements of a judge in
him and presented his name. He realiz
ed that this was one of the highest
judicial honors that the republicans of
the district could confer npon anyone
and he wonld use all honorable means
by which to secure his election although
this is not considered a republican dis
trict He gave assurance that if elected,
his partisanship would stop at the polls.
Judge Reader then responded to calls
for a speech, saying that it was custo
mary on such an occasion for candidates
to give excuses for their nomination, but
that he had none to offer. During an
acquaintance of twenty years he had
noticed many qualities in Mr. Stinson
which are characteristic of a good judge.
The people want as a judge a man who
will not be swayed by political influence,
a man clean and pure in judgment He
hoped for a harmonious and clean cam
paign, one that would be of no injury to
the defeated candidates.
The selection of the judicial committee
men was left to the choice ot the candi
dates, who will be given instructions to
fill any vacancies which might occur.
The committeemen selected were Jay

The second annual celebration of fire
men's day, which is also labor day, was
enjoyed by large crowds, who came to
see the races and sports. There were
not many people in from the country,
but the town residents turned out in
large numbers. The celebration was in
every way a greater success than that of
last year, which was the first attempt of
the firemen in getting up such an affair.
About 1 :30 the parade began. Headed
by the chief of police, Frank Hagel,
City band, mayor and city council occu
pying three carriages, followed. Then
came the three hose carts, the hook and
ladder company, all the firemen dressed
in their attractive uniforms. They were
followed by twenty carpenters dressed
in bright new carpenter suits of light
blue duck. They represented the car
penters' union of Columbus.
After the parade, the program began
at the park. The principal speeches
were given by Hon. J. C. Cleland of Fre
mont, one of the pioneer firemen of the
state, and Hon. I. L. Albert of this city.
Both speeches were excellent and The
Joubnal regrets that a more lengthy ac
count of them can not be given this
The races were entered into with the
true American spirit and caused much
excitement and amusement to the spec
tators. The coupling exhibition by AI. Marks
of Stanton, who holds the state record
as champion coupler, was one of the
interesting features. Marks made the
coupling fifteen times without a miss,
and the last three runs he was timed for
record, which resulted in his beating his
former good standing. Mr. Marks ran
50 feet broke the coupling and put on
the nozzle in exactly 4 seconds, doing
the same thing three times, each in 4
seconds. His former record made in
Norfolk was 12 3-5 seconds for the three
runs. In a three-foot coupling he made
three couplings in 4 3-5 seconds. In all
of these contests against time, he was
The straight-away hose race was made
in 13 3-5 seconds by hose team No. 1 and
in 15 2-5 by team No. 2.
The wet hose race, W. Y. Bissell hose
company made the run in 41 9-10 seconds,
and the regulation hook and ladder race
by the Pioneer hook and ladder company
came out in 28 2-5 seconds. Erail Hart
izen gave one race that was not on the
regular program. He ran 50 feet and
climbed a 24-foot ladder in 7 9-10 sec
onds. The state record for this event is
4 3-5 seconds.
The most exciting incident on the pro
gram was the water fight by four mem
bers of the fire department Will Ker
senbrock and Bob McCray fought against
Ed. Kavanaugh and S. Anderson. The
boys ran toward each other from oppo
site directions to a distance of about
eight feet apart when they turned on the
water with direct pressure. They fought
for five minutes and 38 seconds when the
judges called the contest a draw. The
heavy stream of water can be thrown
with terrific force and the boys spattered
the crowd in good shape in the short
time. The water fight was the last
thing on the program of the day's sport
W. M. Cornelius and Carl Kramer
both made interesting addresses at the
opening of the program.

We are under obligations to several
patrons for sweet corn, apples and water
melons found behind the mail boxes
recently, for which the carrier is exceed
ingly gratified. We noticed carrier No.
1 coming in from his trip the other day
with something that did not look to us
just like U. S. mail. But letter carriers
are never to be asked leading questions
when returning from a trip. So we,
knowing the rules, and not what he had,
have left it to our readers' imagination.
We notice that part of a route in one
of our neighboring counties is "pulled
off." The reason being failure on the
part of the patrons to keep the road
passable, on that part of the route. The
department does not compel, but require
that the road be made and kept in a good
passable condition or no route. The
patrons ot this routeor the road masters
have been trying to do their part and the
carrier will enter no complaint to the
department as long as he sees that an
effort is being kept up to keep the mail
acoming. We realize that the funds are
low sometimes and we would suggest
that those working out their tax would
put in a day or two gratuitous. It would
make a big difference to the road and
would not be felt to the man when the
year is up. Good roads always add value
to a farm.

GRANTING A FAVOR.
W It naeltaalr D Not Make the
Keel-Meat Feel Ceatemtlkle.
The essence of truest kindness lies in
the grace with which It Is performed.
Borne men seem to discount all gratl
tude almost make It Impossible, by the
way in which they grant favors. They
make you feel so small, so mean, so in
ferior; your cheeks burn with Indigna
tion in the acceptance of the boon you
seek at their hands. You feel it Is like
a bone thrown at a dog Instead of the
quick, sympathetic graciousness that
forestalls your explanations and
waives your thanks with a smile, the
pleasure of one friend who has been fa.
vored with the opportunity to be ot
service to another. The man who
makes another feel like an insect re
clining on a redbot stove while he Is
receiving a favor has no right to ex
pect future gratitude; he should feel
satisfied if he receives forgiveness.
Let us forget the good deeds we have
done by making them seem small in
comparison with the greater things we
are doing and the still greater acts we
hope to do. This Is true generosity and
will develop gratitude in the soul of
him who has been helped unless he Is
so petrified in selfishness as to make it
impossible. But constantly reminding
a man of the favors he has received
from you almost cancels the debt The
care of the statistics should be his priv
ilege; you are usurping his prerogative
when you recall them. Merely because
it has been our good fortune to be able
to serve some one we should not act
as if we held a mortgage on his Immor
tality and expect him to swing the cen
ser of adulation forever In our presence.

Through a narrow street lined with
shrines, temples and shops the way
leads toward the sacred river. Here
and there It Is necessary to pick one's
steps. One of the first sights to at
tract the eye Is a dead rat festering be
fore the door of a dwelling, and the
rats are said first to have spread the
plague at Bombay. A moment later a
dirgelike cry breaks upon the car. It
Is "Ram, Kara, Ram!" In memory of
the saintlike prince of ancient India.
Four bearers are carrying a body to
be burned. So narrow Is the street
that it becomes necessary to crowd
back against a temple wall to let the
dead pass by. The body is wrapped in
muslin, and the face Is covered. The
pall Is sprinkled with drops perhaps
of rosewater. perhaps of the sacred
Ganges. This Is the path of the dead.
No guide Is needed except to follow in
the hurrying footsteps of those who
were carrying the corpse to its resting
place upon the pyre. Professor A. V.

by, who regarded her through their
