Over three hundred and fifty demo
crats attended the banquet at the Or
pheus hall Monday night, at which time
a state democratic club was organi'ed.
After the banquet, which was BerYed by
St. Anne ladies, the organization of the
club, was effected by selecting Dr. Hall.
Edgar Howard and W. V. Allen as a
committee to select officers of the organi
zation, their choice to he presented at
the next meeting of the club, on the
morning of the democratic state conven
tion, at J rand Island, for ratification.
This completed, the program was next
in order, with Judge I. L. Albert aa
toastmaster. The first toast, "The
Democratic Party and the Trusts," was
responded to by W. B. Price. Congress
man Hitchcock followed with "Prosperi
ty by act of Congress." "Politics" was
the subject assigned to Richard L.
Metcalfe of the Commoner, Willis E.
Heed, candidate for U. S. Senator, re
sponded to the toast, "(Setting Togeth
er," and Mayor J. C. Dahlman of Oma
ha had for his subject, "Self Ueliance."
Senator W. V. Allen spoke next, and
the closing speech was "Nebraska Demo
cracy,'" by Governor Shallenberger.
BesulcB those on the list of speakers,
many of the prominent democrats of the
Btate were present. The hall was taste
fully decorated, but the one thing that
seemed to be lacking was a likeness of
the "Peerless Leader." The banquet
was a success in every way and the local
committee in charge feel very much
gratified over the outcome. In the
meantime tin: club will endeavor to
gather members and coin until the state
convention, to make as good a showing
as possible. State Chairman J. 0.
Ityrnea presided over the meeting to or
ganize the club, as at present the state
chairman and secretary are ex-otticio
otliccrs, to continue aB such until tiie
Orand Island meeting.

C. M. Gruenther, accompanied by.T.G.
Price and Jerry Oarng. who clerked the
big land sale for him at Burlington,
Colo., returned last Saturday. The
land eold averaged about 58 per acre,
which, considering conditions, was a
very good price In speaking of the
country they describe it as quite level
and easy to farm. On account of the
prevailing dry weather that locality was
pretty well dried out, and this condition
prevailed east of Colorado. In spite of
the present apparent drawbacks, they
predict that the country will still con
tinue to come to the front.

It is reported that several Polk county
men, who attended the banquet Mon
day evening, were compelled to finish
their journey to this city on foot, their
automobile catching Ore and burning up
when they were one half mile north of
the Bean school house. It seems that
something went wrong with the machine
and one of the occupants, in trying to
discover what the trouble was, crawled
nnder it and struck a match. The result
was an explosion, which blew him from
beneath the machine, and also threw his
companions away from it. A second
explosion followed, and then the tire
which burned all the wood and intlama
ble portions of the auto started. One
who saw the wreck said that the numlier
was 4177 and that all but a .small por
tion of the stubs of the spokes remained
in the hubs.

A Democratic Love Feast.
With a neatly prearranged program,
carried out without a hiteh, tho demo
cratic county convention Monday was a
veritable love feast.
Chairman Byrnes called the conven
tion to order, and without any prelimi
nary it proceeded to get down to busi
ness by electing C. M. Oruenther, chair
man. Mr. Gruenther thanked the con
vention for the honor, saying that it was
the first time he had ever had the pleas
ure of presiding over a public gathering
and appreciated the honor. W. E. Stern
berg of Humphrey was then selected
secretary, and on motion a credential
committee, consisting of Frank Kiernan,
E. A. Harms. II . Schacher, Fred Pratt
and Herman Luedtke were appointed.
During the time the credentials com
mittee was busy with their deliberations,
Senator W. V. Allen of Madison was
called on for a Bhort talk. His talk was
along the line of harmony, and he said
that the democrats of Nebraska should
not be divided by local issue iu the fall
campaign. At tuc close or ma talk the
credentials committee reported, and the
chairman started to read the list, when
a motion was made to dispense with this
provided there were no con tests. Chair
man Kiernan of the committee assured
the convention that there were no con
tests and the action prevailed. At this
juncture Edgar Howard made and put
the motion that tho temporary organiza
tion be made pennancnt.whioh prevailed.
But the next order of business result
ed in the smashing of a precedent, when
chairmnn Oruenther stated that the
appointment of a resolution committee
was next in order. After this announce
ment there was an ominous qniet, but
none of the unterritied responded, and
the convention of 11)10 goes down in his
tory as the only democratic convention
held without adopting a string of resolu
tions. It was a neat piece of side step
ping, which the occasion required.
Tho order of business was then chan
ged and a central committee selected, as
follows; Columbus. First ward, Fred
Plath, Second ward. Mark Burke,
Third ward. G. B. Speice, Fourth ward.
C W. Phillips. Columbus township, J.

After central committee was selected
a motion was made to select the chair
man and secretary of the committee.
Frank Kiernan of Woodville, in order to
expedite matters, nominated John Bat
term tin for chairman and Jerry Carrig
for secretary. It was his intention to
have both men voted for at the same
time, but the convention concluded they
had plenty of time, each office was taken
up separately. A committeeof one from
each township was selected to name the
state delegation, nnd while they were do
ing this Governor Shallenberger, Mayor
Dahlman, Congressman Hitchcock and
Willis Heed addressed the convention.
Before adjournment the committee
presented the following list of delegates
for the state convention at Grand Is
land: G. A. Schroeder, August Itoettch

Wednesday und Thursday of last week
completed the race meet in this city, and
these two days the going was the best.
Wednesday the 2:14 trot was one of the
most exciting harness races ever witnes
sed on this track, no horse winning more
than one heat, the race finally being
awarded to Check Hook.
On Thursday, the 2.01) pace, was the
feature of the day, the horses finishing
in a bunch, so that it was difficult for
the judges to decide which was the win
ner. This race was won by Major Ganz.
Another feature of the closing day was
the gnideleea race between Denver Dick
and Harry Johnson, which was won by
Owing to t he early date the attendance
at the meet was not us large as it would
have been otherwise, but those who at
tended were fortunate in witnessing
some of the best racing ever pulled off
on the Colnmbus track. The string of
horses here this year was the best ever
gotten together in the middle west, com
ing from as far west as Ls Angeles
Oal. Many of the?e, including Pensia
Maid, were on their way to the grand
circuit. On Thursday Pensia Maid,
the largest winner in the Grand Circuit
last year, was exhibited before the graud

Paul Gertsch of west of Platte Center
was in the city this week, and in speak
ing of the weather conditions he said
that his neighborhood enjoyed a good
rain last Sunday morning. He said the
shower was less than three miles in
width, but that territory was well soaked
and the effect on the growing crops was
to materially improve them.
Wednesday morning the sixteen year
old son of Herman Johannes of Grand
Prairie township met with an accident
that may prove fatal. He was work
ing for Allien TeBseudorf. west of Platte

fork off before he started, and when he
went to slide off the rack it tipped,
throwing him off aud on to the fork
handle, which entered his body several
inches. He was rushed to Platte Cen

Some time ago chief of police Scback
issued a warning to auto speeders, and
during the races, when there was more
danger on account of the crowds, men
were stationed to take the number of the
cars or the oiieuuers. Local auloists
reduced their speed to comply with the
law, but some of the visitors did not
deem this necessary. One machine from
Belgrade was apprehended, and he was
not taken at the time, on a promise to
call in poliee court and liquidate being
made. This, however, he failed to do
and returned home without squaring
himself. But the authorities have the
number of his machine, and soon a war
rant will be iaued and he will be brought
to this city for trial. The maximum
penalty for the first offense is 325. but
this has not been the rule when the
offenders appeared promptly, but in this
case the Nance county man may not get
off as easy as if the promise bad been
kept. Two other numbers were also
taken and the owners have been identi

tary of state, nml they will also be sum

said to lie nsidents of Boone county.
