to our international relations there
exist two cases of crave moment
to our government. The ono is the
' -stato ot insecurity along our border
consequent upon the ravages of the
Indians from the neighboring repub
lic and the frequent invasion by cattle
thieves. The other is the question of
i the boundary line between the
republics of Guatemala and
Mexico. The complaints und de
mands of our minister ' at
Washington , in regard to the for-
riner , have generally received favor

the belief that but for the deplorable
misfortune which hivs befallen the

ernment would have paid more attcn

A GAME OF DUPLICITV
VOH developed nnd exposed to-night
which cannot fail to have1 its effect 'in '
the future politics of this'Htnte.
Nearly a month ago The Otuuliu Re
publican pronounced in most emphatic
terms in luvor of the ronominntion of
Judge Maxwell. From the very
beat authority I learn . thah
the editorial leader advocating
Maxwell's ronominution was submitted
to Thurston and by him approvcd > before -
fore it was publishpd. Tliis fact
known to the intimuto friends of Max
well afforded them assurance that
no organized opposition would
bo attempted. Having thrown
Maxwell's friends off 'their '
guard Thuraton had the state scoured
by his political henchmen , and in
Douglas county ho secured every
proxy that could bo procured for
his followers The only intimation
Max well had of Thu rs ton's treachery
reached him through TUB BKK. Ho
waa not disposed to believe it until
Thurston hud shown his hand in thu
THUUT8ON UNMA8KKI >
himself when ho moved that the nomi
nation ; of Hupromo judge bo made by
secret ballot. With thu most
Holonm and tragic air he de
clared that ho didn't want
the latm hold over his head and ap
pealed to the convention to protect *
the ' sacred right of conscience in
In this desperate effort to bush
whack Maxwell , ho was supported by
that eminent Esau , G.V. . Collins ,
who sold out last year for a mers ot'
Put. 0. Ilawes and Charles Green
also urged the secret ballot. Frank
Ransom made a scathing speech in
opposition , _ Ho wanted men who had
pledged their votes to several candi
dates to show their hand. Ho insist
ed that members of a convention had
no votes of their own , but
wore accountable to their con
stituents and nro duty bound
to put their votes on iccord.
Chapman , Col. Crabh , J , W.Ellor nnd
others seconded Hansom. Finally
thu vote wan taken nnd the secret
ballot voted down by a largo majority.
Thu Thurston plot was effectually exploded , -
ploded and the nomination of Judge
Maxwell followed as a mat tor of course.
TIu'HO were the most exciting inci
dents of the convention.
Tlie closing scuno wus , interesting
only in the outrugo perpetrated by
Chairman Thummell in refusing to
entertain the loaolutions which
Ellor und Iluneom sought to engraft
in : thu platform , I cannot close this
letter without oxpresjing admiration

man who ia bound to make hit ) mark
at no distant day , Ho made a splen
