, g nomxaaaon at candidates. Tae
, convention was called to order by A.
bems taken np
more than an hour
by the proceedings.
After the cenvenrien was in order, C.
J. Garlow moved that they proceed to
zhe nomination of candidates Tiniifr
the cider of business, and the nomin
ation of a county attorney being in
order Mr. Garlow placed, in nomin
ation E. W. fiobart of Colnmbna. The
semination was seconded by F 3L
Cookmkam of Humphrey. The
mies were suspended and Mr. Ho hart
was nominated by acclamation. He
made a brief address to the conTen
tion, which speaks for itself. 3r.
Hobart spoke as follows, in part.
I rrvtTjir the convention for the honor
conferred upon me by this unanimous
nomination. It is an honor to be nom
inated for orSce on tne republican
ticket although it may be in the face
of an adverse majority I want to
urse republicans to stand by the ticket
and work hard for it. and not to be
ashamed of their principles. There
is a great deal to be proud of in the
record of the republican party and the
part it nas played m the hi3rory of
1 the country In the fifty years of the
republican party's existence and ad
, ministration cf the affairs cf the na
tion, the United States has come to
be the greatest nation cf the world.
The record of the party for achieve
men: has been more than maintained
by Theodore Roosevelt. He has kept
his pledze made at the death of the
mnrdereil iLiEinley Democrats, und
ine nothing to say against him, have
taken refuze in the indefinite, mean-
To 'juoce the words of tne great inde
pendent lawyer of Baltimore, Charles
J. Bonaparte, Roosevelt is mwatV only

, busings interests of the caucx.k.
ia perfectly ssvfti.
In our present state rov
we have a zovemar who may hare
hL- faults, but he has proved that he
is a zocti man and lie has ziven the
rat1 a business-like administration.
Our state treasurer, Mr. Mortenaen, is
one of tee best treasurers the state
ha.- ever had.
The old cry that tne republican
party is under the control of the rail
rcacs is a revival cf the same cnarge
tnar was made in 1-1 when Seese,
who was not a corporation man, was
defeated. The republican party has
had cause to recret zhe acts cf some
of its officials, but wnere there nave
been crimes cemmittd they have been
punished. Its defauitms state treas
urer. Earziev, was prosecuted by a re
publican attorney genera- sent to
the penitentiary by a republican
juc:re. How dees tnis compare with
the record cf democratic officials in
Flatte county who utterly failed to
prosecute a defaulting democratic
countv ireasurer His crime was ex
actly the same as Hartley s ,
, iifference was in the amoun:
In conclusion, I want to urge every
! republican present to assist his town
ship committeeman co roll z-a a ma;or-
, ity for BcGsevelt and to elect the re
publican ticket m Piatte county, and
put Piatte county in line wirh. the rest
of the state.
For representative. O. C. Shannon
nominated Joseph Henggler of Bis-
mark townsnin. me also was nomin
ated unanimously under suspension
cf the rules. Mr Hensgler was not
present to accept the ncminaticn in
person, but it was known that he would
accept it. though he had not sought it.
The following delegate were un
animously selectee to represent the
county at the float representative
convention W. A. McAllister, E.
H. Chambers, Henry Rodehorst, O C.
Shannon and David Tinma of Co
lumbus, Harry Lamb of Burrows, Ed

Mr. Hobsart's speech was oae of

Joseph Hngg was born on a farm
near Dubuque, la. , June 10, IsoT. In
the same year his parents moved to
Omaha, and in the year following to
the present home in Platte county,
nine miles northeast of Columbus. Mr.
FTp-aggler received his education in
the roniTsnn schools of Flatte cotmty.
Ee was in baaiaea. in Colambas for
13 years, beginning at the age of 30.
Then he returned to the farm where
he has since been located. Mr.
Henggler has been a farmer of the
scientific kind, a careful student of
agriculture and a wide reader. He
has never held office of any kind ex

He was a democrat up until the
paign of 15i when - ---Ti-e-Tfm
of Cleveland had dssaoaatrated the
fsllsrinnsnasg of free trade aad the
democratic warty strayed after the aew
craze of free silver. Since that time
Mr. Henggler has been a repablican,
because he has become convinced that
it is to the interest of the farmer as
well as the small business dealer to
keep in power the party which has
provided protection for the weaker
industries and has oppesed tne growth
of the moaopoiies which are now sack

He practiced his profess-on in Del

to Columbus in 1901. He has been
engaged in the practice of law since
his coming to this dry, having been
in partnership with J. G. Reeder and
later with L L. Albert, which latter

A warrant has been sworn out by
Joseph Lisco, proprietor of an Eleventh
street saloon, against Arphonsn Heintz,
for assault and battery. Lisco 's story
is that Heine, was requested by him
to leave the saloon last Saturday even
