German military officers severely crit-
ici a the conduct of the English campaign
paign in Afghanistan , noting particu 1
larly the utter ab cnco of any inter ;
communication between Roberta and
Phayre , showing the very loose
and defective organization of Hioir
scouting system. Hessian officera are
unable to discover the merit of Gen.
Roberts' march of three hundred and

LOKDOV , September 2 , 10 p. m
A telegram from the viceroy this
morning confirm * yesterday's Afghan
news given in detailinthese dispatches.
Gen. Roberts thinks Ayoob Khan will
attempt to make a retreat in a north
ward direction into Khagrah , over ttie
ford already referred to , in case he
fears immediate attack. His camp on
the Orjandal is reported by mtivo
spies to be thoroughly intrenched , and
a position capable of being well de
fended in cue the Afghan leader is ,
ready to test hi i ability to repulse an
assault by the British. It is assumed j
that he will seek to avoid a pitched
battle. On the other hand , well in t
formed persons here affirm that Ayoob
is not nearly so cooped up aa repre- j
aented , and give as reasons for this !
opinion , first , that Ayoob's forces !
hare had constant accessions
ever since his retirement from before
Gandahar ; second , that neither Gen
ends Roberts nor Pbayre are in a con
dition to offer battle until their troops
recover from the effects of a long and
exhausting march , and third , that
Ayoob has no reason to apprehend interference - '
terference from the ameer , because
the evacuation of Cabul by Gen. Stew
art has left Abdur Rahman wholly
without British backing in the midst
of a disaffected population. The
story that Ayoob wrote apologetic let-
ten to Gen. Roberts , saying that ho
wu forced to tight by his followers ,
* " and expressing his regret for having
invaded the Oandahar district , is re
pented by the viceroy. General Rob
erts is said to have replied that Ayoob
must give up his prisoners and sub
mit unconditionally. Persons who
hare made a study of the typography
of the country which is nowr.ho thea
tre of operations siy thnt Ayoob's re
treat was wisely planned ard timed ,
aud that he cannot be attacked except
in a position o ? his o vn choosing ,
vhich position il pr iSably be the
ragged barrier opposite Atta Kareiz ,
a strategic point not equalled in Af
ghanistan , for purposes of defense.
Meanwhile the British forces must
risk winter in short supplies or retreat
in the direction of Quettah.

At 2 o'clock every ticket for seats

throng that ever met at a Nebraska
It cannot bo questioned that the
convention represents throughout
great ability , snap and go-ahead.
Eastern men wonder how a state ao
new SB Nebraska has such a body of
representative men , as it requires
time , experience and culture to pro
duce leaders. Tha secret is that the
settlers of a young state are nyide up
of the active , enterprising men of
brains and daring , and they step pt
once to the front. Most of this pres
ent body are men in their prime.
There are a few gray heads , but gen

appointed on resolutions. At this
juncture a move was made that brought
out the temper of the conven-inn ai.d
f > rced a division among its elements.
Mr. Calkins , of Buffilo , moved an
adjournment to 9 a. m. Thursday. He
called attention to the fact that tl.u
chair WHS about to appoint a commit
tee to frame a platform fur the par y ,
and he though : the cummitteu ought
to have ample time for this work.
This resolution brought Mr. Hob

platform and placing candi 'atea upon
it. He thought it a disgrace to the
republicans of Nebraska that this was
the only state where men were exalted
The previous question was ordered.
A great flutter and much excitement
was manifested -rniong the candidates
and the backers of the slate. It waa
evident that adjournment would
smash the slate. A vote by ci-nnnts
waa called and tha result was an
nounced aa 171 for the resolution aud
184 against it.
The state waa saved.
A motion waa then carried to ad

During the evening the convention

up his motion by sundry whereaaes.
On motion to lay on the table a call
of counties was aiked for , and the mo

Thursday morning while the con
vention was waiting for the committee
on resolutions , Mr. Clark , of Nance ,
was loudly called for , who cama for
ward and made a mock heroic speech
in imitation of several who presented
candidates to the convention. Clark
did the business to perfection and
nominated Jamei A. Garfield aa presi
dent of the Uni-ed Stitei. He brought
down the house in uproarous applause.
The committee on resolutions
brought in their report at 10 o'clock
a. m. The report contained a plat
form commendably brief , and a reso
lution of protest against railroad
As soon as they were offered , Judge
Thurston , in a few approving remarks ,
moved their acceptance and adoption ,
