will be observed , gives the people of
this county less than a week's time
to consider the fitness of the candi

who only read weekly newspapers ,
un opportunity to become acquain
ted with their names. Against this
apparent attempt to force upon the
Republican party and the people ,
nominees whose character cannot
withstand proper investigation , the
editor of this journal entered his
personal protest , and the BEE now
again asks this committee to recon
sider that call before it is too late.
The Eepublican party nor any other
organization of this State , can suc
cessfully precipitate any class of
candidates upon this people whoso
record cannot fully withstand pub
And in our judgment every think
ing man will say that the only con
clusion that can be arrived at , from
the nature of this call , is that it is
expected to select men with excep
tionable reputations , who , to be
elected , must succeed upon the spur
of the moment.
Such men we apprehend arc not
the kind sought after by the honest
masses of the party or people. The
call certainly is unprecedented and
can not fail to create the impression
that the Republican party in Doug-
lascounty which , heretofore has
taken the ead is very weak indeed.

The registered letters all came In
a large sized envelope. It is the
duty of a clerk to open this enveU
ope , cutting the end with a sharp
knife , and take out the registered
letters. In doing this the knife ac-
cidently cut a registered letter di
rected to Rosewater. It is a mis
take liable to occur any day , and
one that no man in his sober'senses
and not governed through and
through with prejudice would ever
think of saying a word about. Je-
Assuming this lame excuse to be
true then is it not about time that the
Department secure the services of
men wlo are not liable to make
such mistakes. The idea that they
may occur any day may apply to
the Omaha post office , but nowhere
else. "What , however , is most re
markable about these mistakes is
that they happen to Edward Rosewater -
water only. Considering that it
only takes one hour for letters to
reach Omaha from Fort Calhoun ,
and that Mn Rosewater goes to the
office twice each day for his mail ,
the failure to account for the deliv *
ery of a \mttlforiy-elyht hours
after date of post mark It remarka
bly strange especially as It came
fnm Fort Calhoun , the home of
Congressman Crounse , before the
meeting of a political conven
tion , and was the only let
ter enclosed in the large en
velope from that place. If the ex
posure of such criminal mistakes ( ? )
as these are to be considered as most
"unprovoked attacks upon the He-
publican party" then all we have to
say to the Republican is we plead
guilty to the charges.
The Republican Committee of this
county has suddenly taken upon
itself the right of assuming the pre
rogatives of the people and proceed
ed to appoint delegates to represent
this county in the convention which
is to nominate a State Representa
tive who shall represent Douglas ,
Sarpy , Washington , Cass and other
counties in the Legislature. The
object of this unauthorized move
ment can at once bo discerned by
observing such names as I. S. Has-
call , J JJ. Furay and others
upon" the list of delegates
appointed by this commit
tee. If there is any prece
dent where a committee has
been clothed with powers to select
lelegates for the party , then we
svant them to show it otherwise ,
tve shall be led to infer that they
purposely omitted placing thatmat-
: er before the late convention when
.he call was published , in order to
secure the nomination of some man
vhom tlie party would not recom-
neud. We have no objection to

Meeting of the Eepublican County
( Correspondence of the BEE. )
.LINCOLN , August 31.
EDITOR BEE :
The Republican convention for
the nomination of two members oi
the Legislature , county officers and
delegates to the State Convention ,
was held in the Academy of Music
building on last Saturday. The
convention was called to order by
S. B. Pound , chairman of the
County Central Committee. C. H.
Uere was chosen chairman , and E.
P. Roggen , secretary. After the re
port of the committee on creden
tials , the chairman announced that
the nomination of two candidates
for the Legislature would be in
order. A motion was made and
adopted , that in nominating candi
dates for this position one be
chosen from the city and one from
the country. Upon an informal
ballot for one representative from
the city , A. G. Hastings received
26 , Otto Funke 23 , N. S. Harwood
11 ; votes necessary to choice , 31.
The contest was decided in favor of
Hastings upon the third formal bal
lot by the following vote ; A. G.
Hastings 31 , Otto Funke 29 , Har %
wood 1 ,
An informal ballot was then tak
en for Representative from the
country , resulting in the following
vote : A K White 28 , Louis Helmer
24 , Ii F Piper 5 , John Cadman 5.
Whole number of votes cast 61 ; ne
cessary to a choice 31.
On the second formal ballot , Lou
is Helmer received 32 , White 27 ,
Cadman 1 , scattering 1. So , Helmer
and Hastings slipped in , but it was
like a rich man entering the king
dom of Heaven , though by no
means pjoraising the same reward.
The remainder of the ticket is com
posed of tlie following gentlemen :
Superintendent of Public Instruc
tion , A G Scott ] County Con.rais-
aioner , Will Ensey.
The convention then proceeded to
choose 14 delegates to tlie State con
vention , seven from the city and
seven from the country. Delegates
elected to the State convention are

a prominent candidate before the
14th Representative Convention ,
we understand , is to withdraw in
favor of A. K. White. The delega
tion to the Senatorial Convention
are in favor of O. C. Burr.
Such is generally understood to
be the condition of affairs at present.
The ticket placed in the field will
be supported by the greater mass of
Republicans. Helmer , from the
country , we know nothing about ,
but he is well spoken of by those
who know him. Hasting does not
look much like the man our mind
had created as re-assembling Solon ,
neither is he an orator like Strick
land , but is withal , an honest man.
Hastings will work ; and should
committee duties be assigned him ,
they will not lag. Wo say thus
much notwithstanding certain re
ports in circulation that he has
pledged himself to more tb.au one
Senatorial aspirant , believing them
to be started by the opposition for
Though Renner has a strong hold
on the delegation , Goaper is labor
ing hard to succeed himself. He
is a radical temperance man , but
leans heavily on Kahler's arm when
walking with him.
Ames distanced Hull for prose
cuting attorney , and inasmuch as
he ( Hull ) got mad and wanted to
"put a head on somebody , " we with
draw our support , and boldly an
nounce that Smythe , the Colonel , is
our candidate for Chief-Justice
Waite's successor. This is not done
because we think Smythe a better
man than Hull , for , though he may
be more of an orator , he is not half
30 learned. The Journal says we
abuse Hull in urging him for that
position. If the Journal means by
that , that Hull has not the ability ,
we "fling back the insinuation
with all the Indignation of our
soul ! " as Butler said when ac-
jused of being corrupt. If , in
putting forward Smythe and

centric , or Ujl.QHo , couples will turn
green with , envy at the knowledge
that one pair recently married in
England eclipsed thorn all in novel
ty of the proceedings. The bride
was without arms , and when it
came the tlrao for the bridegroom to
put the ring upon the fourth finger
of the woman's hand according
to the rubric she just shook
off her slipper and presented her
.newly washed left foot to the bride
groom's clasp. The account says he
placed "the ring on the thjrd. toe.
Perhaps tha | w 3 a mistake , or a
cqrn or the fourth toe may have in
terfered with the ring being slipped
oh it. Then both standing ana the
bridegroom holding the bride's left
foot in his right hand the required
formula was repeated. Whether
the prescribed ceremony of clasping
right hands during the exchange of
vows was omitted altogether , or got
around by stepping on each other's
right foot , is not recorded , but the
account says that after the ceremony
the bride signed the register , hold
ing the pen with her toes , in a very
decent "hand. "

avail itself of every local passion to
injure the Republican party. It
presents no policy for the admin

makes no attempt to preserve
consistency. It feels at
liberty to profess in one locality
what it denies in another , and to
take any position in one State to
strike the Republican party a blow ,
without regard to the ground which
it occupies upon the same question
in other States , It does not hesi
