A HUUEWD KEASON.
CONSTANTINOPLE , August 14. The
MusslemaD jurists whom the Sultan
frequently consults explain that Arobi
Pasha in so far as ho disobeyed the
Caliph ia a rebel , and may 'bo ' uncere
moniously treated as such , but in so
far as ho has boon a defender of the
Mohammedan country against the ap-
greaaivodesiuns of Christians helms
merely fulfilled the duties of a peed
MuEslcman , and consequomly Iho
Caliph cannot make common cause
with England. The Sultan may pun-
iah Arabi Pasha if spmo act of rebel
lion is proved against him , but ho '
must not associate himself with those
who wish to crush Arabi Pasha as a
defender of Islam. A correspondent
says this will greatly1 inlluonco Turkish -
kish military action.
THE roilTK MOVING SLOWLY.
CONSTANTNOI-LE , August 14. The
irado declaring AriibiPu.nhu a rebel and
authorizing the Anglo-Turkish _ mili
tary convention ia not yat signed.
The conference met at the residence
of Smid Pasha to-day , and discussed
the question of protection of the Suez
canal , but no decision was reached.
It is believed the resolutions of the
conference in relation to this matter
have no immediate important bearing.
It ia understood a divergence of vions
exists between the porte and Lord Duf-
feriu respecting tie ! wording of the
proclamation ngainst Arabi Paabii.
Lord Dufl'eriu desires a plam and sim
ple proclamation in Turkish and Ara
bic , that Arabi Pasha is not a chief ,
but an ambitious and lawless adven
turer. England insists upon com
manding1 the Turkish troops. It is
stated the question will bo brought
before the conference.
TUB .MILITARY CONTBNTIOW.
LONDON , Auguat H. A Dispatch
from Constantinople/- several
stipulations proposed in the military
convention are considered unaccepta
ble to Turkey. The proclamation
against Arabi Pasha will not bo is
sued until the convention is signed.
The session of the conference to-day
was exclusively occupied with consid
eration of the prop'raalof Count Corti ,
Italian ambassador , for collective
police supervision of Suen canal , which
was finally agreed to as a temporary
measure , with a modification sub
mitted by Lord Duflorin , British am
bassador , permitting the landing of
troops. The proposition was then
embodied in the protocol. The Turk
ish objection to the military conven
tion was not brought forward by Said
Pasha. It is understood the porto is
endeavoring to ueo the delay in issuing
the proclamation a ai st Arabi Paahn
ns a lover to obtain easier terms with
respect to the military convention.

she has two finely formed heads , as

People may think it otrango that wo
speak of M'llos Christine in the sin

that both heads invariably speak as

the two heads never disagree , their

GHAND IHI.AND , Auguat 14. This
city was honored yesterday by a visit
From our congressman , who came up
from the North Bond "jamboroo" on
, ho Denver oxprass and took a good
view of the city as an appetizer for his
iiroakfast , which ho took at the house
of his friend and alleged rival , Ohaun
coy Wiltso. There is something funny
the ambition of Chauncoy ; ho
thinks ho will bo a good enough dark
torso to got away with the Fremont
convention , but if ho isn't , why then
10 will turn hia strength ( if ho has
any ) over to Val. or the other highest
) iddor ,
By the way , Vic. Biorbowor says ho
was oll'orod the Hall county dolega-
; ion , for bettor or worse , for $300. IIo !
declined the oiler and told of It , and
Michael , now running The Times
iiero , says Vio. ia a liar.
Val. and Ohauncoy fixed it up be
tween thoniBolvos yesterday. Chaun-
coy hitched up after dinner and drove
out into the country "to look at the
chickens. " Ghaunooy hold the lines ;
Val. and General Thayer filled the
back seat , to give it stability , and on
the front neat , beside Ohauncoy , sat
Taylor. Everybody doesn't know
Taylor. T. A. is the handle to his
iintuo. IIo used to run a train be
tween here and North Plutto , but ono
day the company dissolved the _ part
nership , and Taylor had to migrate.
Ho wont into Bullalo county , locating
at Shelton , where ho started a saloon
and still runs it , and where you can
get , so ho says , "tho best , by , "
etc. , etc , Aa I "tt i Taylor sat on the
front seat , and did the "funny" buni-
ness for the body of statesmen.
Ohauncoy told Val. of the way the
thing was fixed in this county. H .l"
the screws ready to tighten on 3uo
and the Independent ; "John"
Michael tight ; the Gorman paper of
Gnru'fl.w&s fixed wi'.h a schooner and & *
prouc ! , uujl-vh.p.pjljywoi'bfDi _ ! iiji'\an
followed tho'procession. ' 'ItWis 'too $ %
beautiful for .anything. Then came
Taylor's turn. Bufl'alo county would W
bo all right and don't you forgot it ,
by blank. There's some blank blank
blatikoty blanks np at Kearney who
think they can run it , but ( growing
confidential on a few hours acquaint
ance ) we're going for you , Mr. Valentino
tine , and we'll sliowjthoao etc. , etc. et
ceteras who's running Buffalo county.
Say , I've got a bottle of ( rood stuff
here ; just what you want to warm up
And so that's the way Bufl'alo is
fixed for Val.
Chauncoy NVillso'oxpccto the reun
ion tp boom him into prominence and
position. Perhaps it will and perhaps
If anything now turns up , I'll ' find
out from Taylor next lime I go up to
Sholton. He'll know all about It.
POLITICS IN THE SECOND DIS-
Corropomlonco olTlio Hoc.
HAHTINOH , August 12. Political
matters in Second district are begin
ning to assume definite shape , and as
THE BKK seems to bo the loading
daily in this state I will , with your
permission , briefly sketch out the
status of things for the perusal of your
readers. In this district there are
four prominent candidates for con
gress , with chances for nomination
about in this order : Gaslm , Post ,
Laird and Switsior , While all of those
men have warm friends , the people ,
that is the farmers and men who do
not nniko politics u business , are for a
man who will icproaont their interests
and nol that of a corporation , In the
weat G-islln will have a pretty unani
mous support , while in the east Post
will curry considerably strength.
Switzer is a good man and will get
Homo support from all over the state.
Laird at the opening of the campaign
was the popular candidate , but as poo'
plo have time to consider the matter
he loses strength , until now ho is the
hindmost man in the race. Even
Adama county seems determined to
elect n delegation against him.
In Webster county I find determ
ined opposition among some of the
best men of the state , Franklin , of
course , will support Switzor. Harlan
is determined to stand by Gaslin , not
withstanding Laird , Laws , Dawson
and Bomgardnor have nmdonlcombina-
tiou against him with the B , it M.
cuppers. The farmers will show these
men that they are tired of being
dictated to by railroad monopolies.
Gaslin is , now and h s nltvuys boon n
friend of the homesteaders , and all
know that ohould he bo elected to
congress that ho would represent the
people's best interests. These facts I
have gathered in passing through the
valley from reliable sources , and which
I behove will bu verified when the
convention moots at Hastings , Sep
tember 27th. REI-UIIUOAN.
