SANGUINARY DEED.
The Crimson-Covered Con
veyance of the B. & M.
in Nebraska.
TheJWatchword of that Road."y
The finest thing in tbe Ehapo of a
desd that % vas ever filed in the county
clerk's office of Douglas coun was
handed in to Hon. J. R. Manchester [
Thursday afternoon to be filed and
recorded. It was the "Deed of Conveyance -
veyance from the Burlington and Missouri -
souri River Railroad Co. in Nebraskar
to the Chicago , Burlington and Quincy -
cy Railroad Co. " Such was the in
scription in gold letters upon the back
of a heavy red Turkish morocco bcok ,
about six by twelve inches in pize and
a quarter of an inch in thickness ,
whose covers closed together with a
substantial flap , or tongue , which
made it almost air-tijrht. The leaves
of the book are of unruled parch
ment , and the deed and acknowledgements -
ments , covering thirty pages , are
closely written in old English script.
It is the tomcat kind of a document ,
and bears date of July 2Gth , 1880. It
conveys to the C. , B. & Q. railroad
company , "for the purpose of more
completely carrying into effect the ar-
tides cf consolidation executed be-1
tween the parties , January 1,1880 , "
for the consideration of $1 , all the real'
estate and lands , contracts and choscs
ia action , railroads and branches and
the equipment thereof , all revenues
to be derived th'erefroin , rights of way
and structures thereon , and other
property pertaining I hereto , all leases
of railroads and other property , all
ferries and bridges and the approaches
thereto and revenues therefrom , and
all the other property the B. & M.
bad , or has since acquired , at the time
of the execution of the articles of con
solidation.

"On to Denver , " is now the watch
word with the B. & M. folks. Should
the weather prove favorable this win
ter , they will close much of the space
between Indianola and the beautiful
city on the plains. The work will be
done almost entirely by homesteaders
along the line of road ; the company
deeming it adrieablc to give the poor
homesteaders a chance to keep the
wolf from their doors this winter.

A NEW COLLEGE.
Approaching First Term of the
Nebraska School of
Medicine.
The announcement is mido of the
firut course of instruction at Hie Ne
braska School of Medicine , prepara
lory , to open on the 18th instant in
this city and continue twenty weeks.
The nature of this new enterprise
may best be gleaned from
their catalogue which says that :
"It is the mature judgment of many
of our leading physicians as well as
prominent citizens of other business
pursuits that the time has arrived for
the establishment of a medical school
in pur mate. After deliberate consul
tation as to the demands and the
available means of conducting such r.n
enterprise , the school has been orga
nized under the name and title of
"Tho Nebraska School of Medicine , "
and located at Omaha , a city of up
wards of thirty thousand inhabitants ,
and growing rapidly , supported by a'
state wAh five
hundred thousand people
ple , and with well established com-
coiumercial relations existing between
the city and adjoining states and ter
ritories.
The school for the present will bo
preparatory simply , but the instruc
tiou given will bo thorough iu all the
branches. Eict chair will be
repre
sented by men of experience and abil I- 5I
ity In their respective departments. !
Students will be brought into clone
relation willi the ins traders , thus
affording ov ry possible means for
thorough instruction.
A number of eastern- schools of
medicine have established graded
courses and allow students who are
far enough advanced to enter higher
classes ; hence students in the west
can attend our scJwol for ono or two
terms and then bu admitted to ad
vanced classes of other schools when
their proficiency will warrant snch ad
vancement. "
The faculty is as follows : R. R.
Livingston , M. D. , president , lecturer
tin principles and practice of surgery ,

_ HASTINGS , Neb. , Sept. 29,1880.
To-day on the way hither the train wts
well laden with delegates to the dem
ocratic state convention , and republi
can orators who to-night take the
stump in the opening of the campaign
.
in the different towns along the line
of the B. and H. and branches. The
railway eating houses in Lincoln was
unable to feed the immense crowd
who were ushered from ono part of
, .
the state to another to-day. As in all
such crowds , many pleasant and amusing
.
ing little incidents occurred , by which
the day will ever be remembered-
Gen. Cowin , Qen. Mandereon , Gen.
Crounse , J. L. Webster , C. J.
Greene , ot al. were abroad , and as the
train drew up at Sutton , whefo
Greene is to speak to-night , Greene
stepped off , and as his foot struck the
platform , the Sutton band began to
play a lively air , and most of the
people on the train thought it was in
honor of him as a greeting.
His friends quickly gathered
orpund him , and commenced com
plimenting him upon so magnificent
an ovation , when the band quit play
ing , and Lehew , ono of the delegates
from Sutton to the democratic state
conventionsteppedoutand exclaimed ,
' . 'llurrah for Hancock. " Greene's hat
dropped arl inch lower on his head ,
and the band boarded the train to at-
I tend the state convention.
There are present 233 membersand
the gallery , which was reserved for
. .ladies , is respectably filled.
The convention was called to order
at 8 o'clock by J. Sterling Morton ,
whb nominated Frank P. Ireland , of
Otoe county , for temporary chairman
and Nat. W. Smcihof , Dodge county j
for temporary secretary , and they were
unanimously electtd.
After a preliminary speech by F.
Irelandj an address of wnlcome was
inado by Saul L. Brass , of Juiliata
Adams county.
This was followed by seri 3 from the
glee club.
Motion was then made that a coin
mittee of seven be appointed on ere
dontlalg , when the chairman almos
immediately road the following names
to the convention : Harmon , of Frank
lin ; B yd. of Douglas ; Abbott } of Sa-
lihej White , of Class ; Buttch , of Snr
ny ; " Reynolds , , of Butler , and Flynn
-C 1 -
ui uiay.
\ \ Idle the committee on credentials
were otlt a nibtibn was inado thnt wo
listen to Morton. Morton announced
himself a Methodist , and utterly op-
pceed to Ingersoll both in theology
and politics , and ho was always glad
to see siuncrs come forward to the
mourner's bench , and he was awnre
that there [ was one present who Was
formerly a rcpublicaii , but now re-
nuuiicod ids' , ra t sins , and was ready
to work for Hanbock.
"Abbott ! Abbott ! " was called by
the crowd vociferously. A bbott then
came forward and made a short
speech. Four years ago John Abbott
was candidate for the. able , Senate
from this senatorial district.
He had most of the delega
tion sJid , but Mclntyre , who
was alio a candidate , went to Abbott
and told him that his chances were
gone for the senate , but if ho would
come out for the legislature he know
when ) there were endtliarli yol&i to
elect him , that he could lay his hands
on. He thtn tried in the convention
for the IwieMiive
hoHiinationj and re
cciVt-d eipnt votes out of forty-eight.
Entirely discomfited , he made a
stnmp speech , before the nominations
wet e cold , ami Heuhuhbed the n8mi-
nee ? , swearing vengeance against the
regular nominee , who was elected by
an increased majority. Two years
ago he was candidate for republican
nominee from the same senatorial dj
trict. A largo number of men in tno
county were lately from the east , and
being strangers to him , by hard work
he secured almost a majority of
the delegates , but whan they came in
to convention and his record was ven
tilated , hia friends dropped on him ,
and the convention did not take him
up. Now that he is a democrat tbo
republicans do not consider that they
have lost anything worth keeping.
Eartigan , of Casa county , was then
called as a candidate for the mourners
bbiich. Hartigan stepped forward and
said : "It was not that ho loved the
republican party less .but that he
loved his country more. " An exph-
nation of his course is found in the
fact that he served in the army under
Hancock and fofmed peradnal friend-
snip for him.
Saxton , of Haatfnga , was then
called , who caid ho had been all his
life a democrat , and did not know it.
Saxlon was a candidate before repub
lican conventions almost constantly
eight years ago , but they did net rec
ognize hia ability , and ho took the
greenback whirl , and now he becomes
a democrat.
Hambil , of Jefferson county , was
then called , and said ho used to bo a
democrat , but when he cime to Ne
braska he thought if a man wa ? ta
prosper in his business in Jefferson
county , ho must try to bo a republi
can.
can.A moss-back then spoke and waa
followed by a song by the Glee club ,
and a spech by J. S. Morton , of Ne
braska , in which he took occasion to
arraign the rings and cappers who have
long been opposed , by the better ele
ments of the republican party. Ho
also referred to the non-appearance of
Gen. Thayer in
Hastings to night as
was published by the republican com
mittee. Gen. Thayer'a appointment
was withdrawn by the committee in
charge of Lincoln hall , for the sole
and generous purpose of allowing tho.
democrats to USD this , the only hall
hero with capacity to accommodate
BO great a convocation. The persons
who would attend the republican rally
live here , with the exception of the
speaker , and could attend any other
evening.
The committee on credentials
divided on the Gage county contest ,
and brcught in two reports. Motion
carried reqniring the convention to
act separately on the G go county
contestTen minutes each were
allowed the contesting sides in which
to present the case before the con
vention. The members of the com
mittee representing Ihe minority
report were Oapt. S. S. Reynolds and
F. A. Harmon , and they asked the
admittance of Hazelett and bis fol
lowers ; while the remaining five
members of the committee asked the
reception of G. P. Marvin , editor of
the "Beatrice Democrat" and hia fol
lowers. On motion before the con
vention the majority report was
adopted.
The temporary organization was
then made permanent.
Jas. . Boyd of Omaha , Beach L
Hinman of North Platte , and Victor
Vifquin of Lincoln , were nominated
as presidential electors , with ( S. J.
Jontgomery of Lincoln , " ? . J. Demp-
-ter of Republican City , and W. C.
Connor of Fairmont , as alternates.
The committee on platform repotted
a set of resolnions that take hold of
corporations with ungloved hands.
They declare that corporate property
ihould be subject to taxation , the same
is individual property ; favor "free
: rade or tariff for revenue only ; " and
also ask for the refunding of our state
debt at a lower rate of interest , and
legal resistance of void and fraudu
lent lands. They rejected attaching
l.o tickets a clause by which to get an
ixpresaion on the prohibition ques-
.ton. '
The following ticket was chosen :
For congressman , R. R- Living
ston , of Cass county ; for governor , T.
W. Tipton , of Noroaha ; lieutenant-
governor , S. H. Calhoun , of Otoe ;
secretary of state , G. W. Johnson , of
Filmore ; auditor , T. C. Patterson , of
Wayne ; treasurer , Frank Folda , of
Jolfaxj attorney-general , George E.
Pritchett , of Douglas ; land commis-
lioner , E. H. Andrus , of Buffalo ;
iuperintondent of public instruction ,
Dr. A. Bear , of Madison.
The convention has now completed
its work , and the members will leave
by the trains in the morning. JAY.

man of the county democratic central
committee. The latter made brief re
marks expressing hia belief tliat the
election of November wou'd place the
democratic candidate in the presiden
tial chair , and thus giving us peace
lasting nud universal. Gen Hancock
was a manwLotu , time of watybelioved
in the sword and in time of peace 111
the supremacy of the law. Alluding
to local iasues Mr. Boyd said that the
subject of taxation most interested
the people of llebrftskai The sum of
200,000 is paid annua'ly to aupimrt
our state goycrilmtJnt when half that
amount would Uo aufiicta'nt ; If the
people of the state knew how their
money was being stolen and wasted
they would rise in their might and
hurl the party in power out of the
positions they disgrace. Mr. Boyd
said rhUcli morn tc thfe Wme effect
and then introduced aa the spoalcr of
the evening , Hon. Geo. E. Pritchett ,
democratic candidate for attorney-
generalwho made an extended speech. '
Mr. Pritchett sa4 .tbo while the
republicans had run the government
since IBdi , the democrats had from
1800 to 1(50 ( novt * failed to
elect ; , their president , except
In 1840. That they had managed
thb coimtry'i ! affairs will could not be
d.-nied. They had broog'ht It niifely
through _ tw6 foreign wars , and at
length , when Linco'n ' was elected by
an unknown iind unorganized section
al party , i * had found itself attacked
on both flanks , on the one by armed
rebellion , on the other by the Uncon
stitutional party in control of the
goVernmenl. T.iey paid to themselves ,
"Wo will first put down this rebellion
and then attend to the demolition of
the obnoxious party in power. " The
democrats , therefore , waiving all their
sensitive feelings , pitched in and
made a success of the war , putting
down both armed and Unarmed rebel
lion. The war1 , being ended , the
speaker admitted thattho republicans
had elected their second pregiddnt , by
a small majority , which Had each suc
ceeding year decreased , until in 1876 ,
when a majority .of a quarter of a
million of ttio popular vote wa § given
for the candidate of this party , which
had licked bo'th dragons. While con
gress had declared the sole object of
thewar tobe'the preservation of the
Uhloiij thb roctiblican party had acted
tnbat perfidiously , and , passing' recon
struction laws , which were not worth ,
in the speaker's opinion , the paper
they were written on , had divided the
south up into military districts , over
which were placed petty despots. The
old , old story of Hancock and his or
der No. 40 was repeated , after which
the alleged frauds of 187G came in for
a good ahare of time. Toe rest of the
speech was in the usual order of dem
ocratic speeches.
Mr. Pritchett was followed by one
or two other speakers and the meet
ing adjourned.
