I THE STATE CONVENTION.
The republican state convention
which is io meet at Columbus next
Wednesday for the purpose of electing
'six delegates to represent Nebraska
in the national republican convention ,
will be the largest repreeentative body
thst has ever assembled in Nebraska.
It is now a settled fact that this body
will oppose the ronomination of Gen
eral Grant and endorse James G.
Blaine as the choice of Nebraska re
publicans for the Presidency. Out of
the three hundradand seventy-throe
delegates apportioned among tha vari
ous counties less than one-third are
in favor of the ex-president over
hundred oFihwe delegates are
outspoken Blaine men. Although the
sir votes which Nebraska will cait in
the national convention may not nom
inate the next republican president ,
thete.tix votes will doubtlets be an im
portant factor in the eelection of the
standard bearer of our pary in the
impending campaign. The issue in
Nebraska was squarely made as be
tween the friends of Gen. Grant and
the friends of Mr. Blaine.The sentimeut
a ? esproieed through primaries and
convention ! is emphatically in favor of
Blaine , and the state convention wil'
doubtleis select a delegation that rep

THE latott advices fromC Hforn a
indicate that the settlers in Fresno and
Tulare counties are determined to hold
tbeir lands against the unjust ag
gressions of the Sonthnrn Pacific.
There has already been a terrible trag
edy enacted , ceveral men having re
sisted the officers of the corporation ,
who attempted to take up the lands
which they have improved. The set
tlers are trilling and ready to make a
compromise , provided any chow of
fairneis is manifested , but otherwise
they trill fight if necessary. The his
tory of the case shows how lightly a
monopoly holds the rights of any one
in conflict with their "rights , " even
though they are usurped and main
tained contrary to law.
The Southern Pacific railroad comtl
pany in 1866 received a grant from
congress of 12,800 acres of land for
every mi'o of road built by it from the
Bay of San Francisco along a certain
route southward to the town of San
Diego and then eastward to Colorado.
The grant was made on condition that
the road should take the course indiJ"
cated , but that condition was never
fulfilled. Instead , a section of track
was laid from the Bay of San Francis
co to Tres Pines and a branch of the I
Central Pacific to Goshen , from where
southward what is called the Southern
Pacific has been extended , bnt over a
line widely different from that origi-
nally marked out. Through haUy |
legislation the corporation was granted
permission to change its course , but it
is thought that this cannot stand the
test of legal action. Tharo is to day a
gap of something like a hundred miles i
between Tres Pinoi and Goshen , over
which no track has pet been laid
For a long period there was no track
laid from Goshen westward through
the lands about which trouble has now
arisen in Tulare and Frmnn counties ,
and there was no apparent intention
of building any. Later , however , af
ter these lands had been enhanced in
value by the hbor and outlay of tb
settlers from § 2.50 an acre to $20 , $301y
and § 10 , the railroad saw , fit to extend
a branch just far enoughto pass
through ibem , and to lay an appar
ently legal foundation for a claim o
ownership over them. At the end o
forty miles the new branch stopped
and has continued to stop until the
pressnt moment. Hundreds of eet-1
tiers made their homes on tracts o :
land now claimed by the railway com
pany , expecting that they would be
able to purchase the land at the pric
( § 2.50 per acre ) , at which it was val
ued when they took up the land ,
They have been improving it for a number
bor of years , rendering it fertil
by establishing a net-work of irrigat
ing ditches , bringing water from the
Sierras. All this they have done at
an estimated cost cf about four bun-
dred thousand dollars. It is , in short ,
a gigautic land steal , which these
sharks propose to carry out by force
or else under cover of legislation
parformed by their bought-up men.
THE request of Postmaster James ,
of New York , that his name be no
mentioned in connection with the
postmaster generalship , to be mad' '
vacant by the retirement of Judge
Key , is to be regretted. His appoint
ment would have been a grand thing
for civil tervice reform , for the official
who has been so successful in th
management of one office , and thaf I
the most important in the country ,
would have wisely administered th
duties'of an office having charge of tne
affairs of several thousand offices. As 1.
we have before mentioned , Genera !
James' promotion to the vacancy in.
the cabinet would be New Yorks loss
against the gain of the whole country.
But so strong a pressure has been
brought to bear upon him that he will
retain his position , partly on account
his natural aversion to leave those
who have contributed so much to his i C
success. I al
THE Utes have taken the war path
and the government will now have to
take active mouures to put down these | tb a
