I The Democratic County Couven-
Abut a hundred people assembled at'
the court house Monday afternoon in
. response to the call of the officers of
the democratic county committee for a
mass convention to name sixteen dele-
irates to the congressional convention
held at Norfolk yesterday.
The meetimr was called to onier bv
Judge Ratterman. as chairman oi the
, committee, and the call was read by
secretary Carrig. Hon. Charles
Schueth of Humphrey was them made
chairman of the meeting, ana John
Gibbon, of Monroe, secretary. This.
however, was tfter numerous gentle
men had been nominated and had de
clined the honor.
Judge Hensley then presented a mo
tion to allow Judge Howard to name
the delegates, wnich was seconded by
Auirust Wagner, which motion met
the instant opposition of State Chair
man Byrne-;. Elake Maher. and others,
wniie Hensley and Dan Kavanaugn
pleaded for the motion. Indeed, one of J
the strongest pleaders for the with- j
draw of uie motion was Mr. Howard

convention which was regarded as
peculiar by many, some even of the
leaders remarking about it afterward,
was the failure of the convention to
adopt any resolutions regaining the
occurrence which made the convention
imperative, the death of Congressman

W oim! Smitn. and friends in the city,
after whieii he intended leavng for
Lacon. Illinois, to resume the study
of law in the office of an uncle as a
preparation for entering Harvard uni
versity. Most of Saturday morning
he -pent at this office with the writer,
who was a boyhoou friend of his
years ago at Fullerron. Durirg this
time he complained of feeling weak
and of believing that he was about to
have an attack of the grip. He was.
however, able to be around, and as
for being serously ill. the thought
newr entered the minds either "f mm
or of his friends. A. two o'clock he
feit -o weak that he decided to post-
.pone his departure until such time as
he might feel more like travel:ng.
and upon the advice of friends con
sulted a physician who persuaded him
to go to the hospital until he should
feel better. At three o'clock Sunday
morning he suddenly grew worse, and
before a physician could arrive, pass
ed away. It is said bv those who
were in attendance that he did not
suifer at any time and was conscious
up till the time of his death. One of
the nurses coming into the room but
a few moments before the end ?ame.
took hoid of his hand, and noticing
the change that had come over him re
marked. "'My boy. you are going to
die. "It is said that he looked back
at her and smiled, saying. "O no.
you are mistaken this time; I am al
right. ' ' but the words were uttered
just as the end came. Spinal Men
ingitis is given as the cause of his
death. George Lagrange spent his
early boyhood days at Fullerton where
his father was cashier of the Citizens
National Bank. Later he moved with
his parents to Genoa, from which
place ne later moved to Redlands.
California. He graduated from the
Genoa High school at the age of four

versity with Phi Beta Kappa honors
at the age of twenty. For the past
year he had been studying law with
an uncle at Lacon. Illinois, and it was
his intention to enter the law depart

Dolan of this city, and by three sis
ters. Mrs. Geogre Mahoney, Mrs.

Omaha, all of whom were present at
the funeral. The funeral was held
Tuesday forenoon from the Catholic
church and was attended by members
of the A. 0. U. W.. the Fraternal
Orders of Eagles and by representa
tives of the Railway Engineer's
L'nion. of Omaha, to which he be
longed. The business men's club of the Y.
M. C. A. held it3 rirst monthly ban
quet of the season last evening.
After the dinner had been disposd of
President Gray presented Rev W.
H. Xanders. who introduced C. N.
MeElfresh as toastmaster. Richard
Gehnng favored the audience with a
violin solo, which was well received,
after which the rirst speaker of the
evening, Mr. J. H. Dodge, who is
here in charge of the road, work- be
tween the Loup and Platte rivers,
and who spoke enthusiastically of his
work. He declared that both these
rivers are peculiar. "The Platte."
said he. "is peculiar in that it is like
some newspapers of wide circula
tion, but little inriuence. " He ex
plained this by saying that while it
ia very wide, requiring long bridges
to span it still it is so shallow that
it has no commercial value as a water
way. The Loup he characterized as
being peculiar for having the most
uniform rlow of any river in the
country according to the official geolo
gical survey. He emphasized the im
portance of good highways by declar
ing that ninety per cent of all the
commerce of the nation is carried
over the roads at one end or the other;
that while our railroads and water
ways are very important that they
would soon go out of business if he
farmers would quit producing the raw
materials and deliver in them to them
County Attorney MeElfresh explained
some of the provisions of the inherit
ance tax law and declared that while
the county had collected about S2.000
since it? enactment, the amount should
have been two to three times that a
mount. but for to laxity of officials
charged with its collection. Mr and
Mrs. J. E. Erskine then sang a duet,
which was well received a hearty
encore called them back with a second
selection. Rev. Samuel Harkness
then spoke on the subject of 'Men
And Religion Forward, "which is the
name of a concerted movement which
is now under way in many of the
larger cities. He said that next
Sunday it was to move from Chicago
to Omaha, and expected that it would
reach Columbus within three or four
weeks. The movement is under the
direction of Fred B. Smith, interna
tional secretary of the Y. M. C. A.
and is making great strides. He de
clared the great elements necessarv
for successful religious work were
evangelism, missions, social service,
boys' work, personal work and team
work. Heretofore, he said we have
paid too much attention to vague per
sonalities, and not enough to these,
especially team work. This was ne
cessary in order to place the church
on a solid basis, on which it must rest
if it is to have a substantial inriuence
in the community. At this banquet
the members were accompanied by
their wives and sweethearts, which is
j the custom for the rirst banquet only.
The club will hold it3 meetings re
gularly on the third Tuesday of
each month until spring.
