Mr. Drake withdrew his

ooaa poaitiea. Oa the rote by towa
abipa, the Hoare aaapartara voted for
Keat while the Garlow aad McAllister
factioaa cast their ballots for Rolfs.
ia this vote it was aoticed that two
delegates from Moaroe township were
absent aad their TOtea were not cast
by the delagatioa preaaat. It was also
observed that Walker towaship cast its
sevea rates for Bolfe. This elected
Mr. Holfe chairaian by a rote of 53
to 4G. Frank Wnrdeman of Sherman
was made secretary aad Jake Evans
of Orestoa assistant secretary. The
organization was later made per
maneat. Oa the face of the vote for chair
man, the anti-Hoare element seemed
to be ia the majority, bnt the know
iag ones only looked wise and said
nothiag. Oa motion of Mr. Garlow,
the chair appointed the following
committee of are on credantiais: O.
H.Kxietzaa, H. O. Bodehorst, R. P.
Drake. W. B. Pogaley aad C. J. Gar
low.1' At this poiat Howard Clark
suggested that the chairman had raet
been girea timo to make the keynote
speech of th campaign. A speech
from Mr. Bolfe was deaianded and he
respoaded ia a brief address thanking
the coarentioa for the hoaor aad
argiag aaited aad harmoaioaa action.
He closed by aeyiajr: "I hope that
we amy not lot anything interfere
with the campaign. L-et us not do
anything ia this convention or cam-
Baica which will injure oar prospect
of carrying Platte coaaty this fall."
After the credential committee had
reported, a motion was carried provid
ing that where aay delegation was
not tally rapreaaated the delegatea
preseat shoald cast the fall vote. Mr.
Hoare then moved that she convention
proceed according to the call as I
priated in the Oolambaa Journal. The
motion carried and the call was read.
On motion of Mr. McAllister, it
was decided that no awn should be
selected as a delegate to more than
one coaveatkm. Oa motion the chair-
appointed aa a committee on
reaolatioas O. J. Garlow, W. A. Mc
Allister. B. 8. Dickinson, Ed. Hoare
and Nels Olson of Greeton.
Mr. Hoare moved that the conven
tion proceed to the election of dele
gates to the state convention by call of
townships aad wards, the sen receiv
ing the highest number of votes to be
declared elected. The motion waa
carried and after nearly everybody in
the coaaty had beea aominatcd some
aercifally moved that nomina
tions close and ballots be taken. The
following were elected by a vote rang
ing from 68 to 72: E. H. Chambers
Ed Hoare, O. G. Gray.Emest DusselL,
Hugh Hughes. J. W. Apgar. Jno.
Wnrdeman, If. R. Oowdery. D. H.
Harriagtoa aad Nels Olson. In the
result of this vote it waa plainly ap
parent that the Hoare man had held
out on the opposition in the first vote
for organisation of the convention.
Walker township came into the fold
and the hand-writing on the wall was
In the same manner the following
were chosen delegates to the ooagres

On motion of Mr. McAllister, nomi
aatioa of county ofllcera was deferred
until a future alasa, the convention to
re assemble at Oolambaa oacail of the
chairman, Mr. Bolfe.
At this point Mr. McAllister sprang
a little exdtemeat in the form of a
motion that the chairman of the
central aommittee be elected for one
yeariaateadoftwo. Masai a.MsAllister
aad Garlow spoke ia favor of the
motion, arguing that it would be ua-

Hoare bad.held the position for three
years and it was against republican
principles to give aayoae a 'life job."
He called attention to the fact that
Mr. Hoare was the object af mach
criticism and opposition within his
own party. Mr. Garlow made aa
earnest appeal for the election of Mr.
Rolf e and closed by aeclariae: bia-eeif

A rare treat was afforded those who
attended the rendition of King, Lear
by the Shakespeare Department of
the Woman's clnb last Wednesday
Th3 fact that the parts were all
taken by women, and not in Shakes
pearean costume, might lead one at
the beginning to rel the play could
nor be interesting, bnt such was far
'from the case.
Mrs. Geer. aa King Lear, was es
pecially 'strong. One forgot the
woman entirely and saw only an im
perious old Kim;, domineering and
opinionated nntil he gave his power
to his daughters.
Then when he was forsaken and
abased by them, as the Earl of Kent
had prophesied, we saw the towering
rage of baffled royalty, and finally
the pathetic supplication of dependent
old age. The strength of the char
acters Goneril and Began and their
husbands, as taken by Roam Wiggins
and Minnie McMahoa, Mrs. Mary
Cramer and Mrs. J. G. Boeder, lay
in the -fact that they" made their
audience dislike them for their false--ness
to their aged father, although
it took a lively flight of imagination
tc believe it possible of faces so fair.
It is always easy to love Cordelia, as
played by Elizabeth Sheldon. The
Earls of Kent and Gloucester represent
ed our feelings as they pleaded for the
neglected and demented old King.
The duel scene between Nellie Lynch
as.Edmond, and Alice Luth as Edgar
was as exciting and realistic as fire
had flashed from actual swonls.
The play was made easy to follow
even bv those nnt familiar with
Shakespeare, by the synopsis read be
fore each scene bv Mrs. Wm.' Murray.
It is to be regretted that many more
were not present to enjoy the piny, aa
the work was worthy n crowded
house, and ita purpose alone should
have appealed to the public interest.
As it is. the ladies have twenty-nine
dollars and fifty cents to add to their
fountain fund and hope to increase the
amount before finally depositing it.

We have the following communica
tion concerning two farmers on route
3. Columbus: "New and practical
methods are constantly tried bv the
up-to-date farmers. Mr. Mason has
been cultivatiag his wiater wheat this
sprintr by harrowing it. He adopted
this plan last spring and says that an
increased yield resulted.' The same
correspondent writes: "John Brunken,
one of the largest hog raisers ontfoute
3. tells his plan of feeding hogs for the
market. He Relieves in crowding the
pig - from weaning time rill it is
marketed. -But he never7 gives for
one feed more than the, pig will eat
up clean, and he feeds at n certain
hour each day, believing that to feed
one day at five o'clock and the next nt
aix, is to feed at a loss. He condemns
the practice of throwing loads of corn
into the feed lot. which wastes the
feed and hamperrthe growth of the
hog. He has made experiments which
prove the profit to be gained by fol
lowing ' out his method. At this
season. Mr. Brunken soaks his corn,
feeding it' just before it sours.
State Veterinarian Thomas reports
that a herd of hogs owned near Lin

NeaL In addressing the convention, Mr.
"Gentlemen of the convention : This
is n republican year. Ever since the
news was flashed over the wires in
189G that William McKinley was elect
ed president, we have been enjoying
and are now enjoying proeperitv in
such degree aa has never been equalled
in any age or in any country. The
four yeara prior to 1897 is the first
time since the davs of Buchananvtbat
the executive and legislative branches
have paraed under democratic control.
As soon as possible after being induct
ed into office they began to enact into
laws those policies for which they had
been declaring in each preceding na
tional convention. They passed the
Wilson bill which Cleveland allowed
to become a law without his signature
bceause it was not a free trade meas
ure absolutely. If it had been in his
power to frame snen a measure, it
would have been even worse than it
was, if such n thing were possible.
Bnt even as it was, it took such a
stride in the direction of free trade
that it stifled Amreican industry, it
changed the balance of trade against
n, it closed the factories of this conn
try, and turned multitude of laborers
out of employment; it impoverished
our farmer, wrecked onr banks by the
hundreds, and placed in the hands of
receivers two-thirds of the railwav
systems of this country. In this result
every man who voted for silver and
free trade played a part.
"In the midst of that disaster and
gloom a voice was heard that had a
silver ring. It was that of the Boy
Orator of the Platte, who in the balls
of the American congress had made
a free trade speech that bronght him
national fame as an orator throughout
this land and made him one of the
leaders of his partv : and largely to
his efforts was due the democratic tri
nmphof 1892. That measure of free
trade. was passed in 1S93, bnt in place
of bringing contentment and comfort
to an already happy and prosperous
people, it brought nothing but the
blackness of despair and gloom. The
lowering cloud hung dark and threat
eaing for a period of four years aad
never began to dispone until the re
publican parry was returned to power.
Ia the convention of 189G was per
formed an acrobatic feat. For n nice
piece of political atrategv, or some
thing worse, yon may be commended
to that convention which assembled
in Chicago under the banner of de
mocracy. When the evil effects flow
ing from free trade were seea. the
deaaocratie praty. knowing that criti
cism woald fall upon the favored poli
cy of their candidate, aaaae an sssnult
nana Graver .Ultrekad aad his ad
ministration nasi charged that the
eoaditioas then existing in this coun
try were due to the gold standard.
By the adoption of that positron for
a period of four years the democracy

groping ia the dark for n candidate.
they selected oae who knew, or should
have kaown,that he himself was more
to blame for the conditions then rest
ing upon the American people than
aay other known caase. With a de
vase af the gold standard aad those
won believed in it. he declared ia
almost tjaaic-'Yoa, shall, not
down anon the brow of labor a
crown of thorns: yon shall not crucify
humanity anon a cross of gold. That
alternant, viewed ia "the light of sah-
seqaeat events, was declaimed by oae
who sought to distract the atteatioa
of the people of tats country from the"
raaleaassof oar country's distress to
n aew iasae based upon the problems
of fianace. Thia country was turned
over to democracy in 1898 in the midst
of the greatest prosperity, with a per
capita circalation of 126.50. By the
passage of an aawise tariff law the
foreign trade balance was so affected
that the circulating medium dropped
to 121.50. The agitation of the prob
lema of finance threatened the cur
rency of this country to n still greater
extent, drove gold entirely from cir
culation aad destroyed the coafideace
of basiaess men who bad money to
put into business, by the threat of a
bad financial policy which every pro
gressive country tor more than a cen
tury had found to be impossible. In
1895 we were told in pathetic lan
guage throughout the length and
breadth of this country, that if Mc
Kinley was elected and the gold stand
ard fastened on this people, hard timea
would come upon' us; that we would
sell no goods abroad ; that the mort
gages would be foreclosed upon our
farms; aad that even a worse condi
tion than panic would overtake us.
Yon nil know the outcome, tested by
the logic of result for the last eight
years. McKinley waa elected, sweep
ing the country like a mighty tidal
wave. The gold standard was fasten
ed upon the. American people. The
democratic tariff law was 'replaced by
the Dinglev bill, and as a result,
which reads like a story from 'the
Arabian Nights, the circulating
medium of this coantry which bad
stood at $21.50 has risen to 30 per
capita in the year 1904. Oar mills
aad manafactorieA whose smoke stacks
had been previously tied up 'have
sprung again into activity. Onr la
bor has all beea employed at largely
increased wages. Industries of nil
hinds have awakened ; bard times have
not come upon us : mortgagee on our
farms have not been foreclosed.
But on the contrary, our farm pro
ducts, as you well know, have more
than donbled in value and in some.
cases quadrupled in value during the
entire eight years of republican rule.
Since those fateful days not one of
thoee direful prophesies have come to
pass, but on the contrary we have
witnessed unexampled prosperity
greater than in any other period of
our country's history. In those dark
days every man who advocated free
Eilver and free trade, in place of" giv
ing us relief, did his very utmost,
unconsciously perhaps, to press down
upon labor's brow than thorny crown
and assisted in the crucifixion of man
kind. In the light of eight years ex
perience, still buoyant with hope for
continued good times, the memory of
four years of democratic mis-rule still
fresh in onr minds, it is little to be
wondered at that democracy almost
upon the eve of its national conven
tion finds itself torn asunder by dis
conL without a leader, with no hope
of success, and without even a definite
policy cf government. To ns it seems
strange in the light of past experience
and the unexampled prosperity that
you and I are now enjoying, that there
is even enough of them left to consti
tute a quorum to do business. Onr
democratic friends were slow to ad
mit that prosperous time had re
turned. They told us that there was
only a lull in the storm, that the fin
ancial rlouds were still gathering,
and that after the slight reaction jlne
to natural causes they would break
again in all their fury and our boasted
prosperity, fleeting and evanescent,
would, disappear like the morning
dew before the summer sun. Bat they
were disappointed ia their propb esies
and they have quit the prophesying
business and gone into n new business.
that of trying to find a leader of their
party who will prove satisfactory to
the Lincoln- iconoclast and a new
Tjnramount issue that will nut run
counter to the inspired doctrine of
democracy as enunciated in the Kan
sas City platform. I have bat little
patience with a man, of whatever
party, who constantly assures us that
good times and prosperous davs are not
due to wise laws and their proper ad
ministration. The intelligence of a
very ordinary man should refuto that
statement. There are men in every
democratic national convention who
through desire to obtain the spoils
of office, or through mere force of
habit, continue to put forth those poli
cies which have been tried in the
past and resulted in disaster. Every
sylable of this proposition must of
necessity be true, that the prosperity
of ns as a people mast depend upon
wholesome laws aad their wise ad

times are due neither to gocd laws,
nor to their wise administration,

declared it to be impossible; it has
