Correspondence of THE HEU
LINCOLN , Aoguat 18. Every man
and woman in Lincoln is a politician ,
and just now ivery man and woman
in Lincoln it engrossed up to their
chins in politia. Although the slate
for haa been agreed
on , there in iJtenao feeling and not a
kicking' ! The scramble for the
Ir'gi&Iature lias been moot eaciting
Tlmt pink o | wire-pullers Tom Ken
nard bus roared from the field after
deaper.uo effort to got. on the ticko
for the statjf oenate. But E/'E. Brown
has held hiJ ground , and will head tin
legislative jtiskot from thia county
with Whelon aa a leader for thi
lower liouifc. Whedou started out na

counties ; and he will have a strong
following. There ia great dissatlatoc
tioa hero among the Gorman republi
'cans ovjfcr the attempt to torco pro
hibitiotf ; and a fight is expected al
along the line among that nationality
My scrap book contains , among
other thihga , the following interesting
notn out of the St. Louis Globo-
Democrat :
WAaniNGTON , D. C , , Juno 23 , The
eecretary ol slate for Nebraska , S J.
Alexander , eaid lo-ni ht that if the retnib-
licaua in liiu ttnta did not have a hard
fight , politically , this full , they would
make one. Tne indications were that
there would bo several c anil id a ten in the
field for governor. But it was a little too
so n to know who the nspiranti would be ,
although there would be mauy camliilat a
for .congmn Jn two of the districts that
have juut been or ated Mr. _ Valentino
would be returned from the First district
without opposition. Oolmiel Tom M. jor ? ,
ho Buiii , lived in whut wai known as tlio
"statesmen's district , " anl tint it em
braced Uniiiha , Lincoln , and tbo county
of Otoe , Senator Van Wyck'a Lome , and
th it a lively contest was promised m that
What changes a few weeks do
make , to bo sure ? A a political
weather prophet , Alexander was not a
great success , ulso ho would havu
have known that ho was to bo among
the politically dead before the cam
paign had fairly begun. That bogus
census corttticdto was the last nail in
his noflin. Judging from the newspa
pers in the North Platte country ,
Valentino ia not deatined to bo re
turned without opposition , and Tom
Majors , poor Tom , Ima gene with
Alexander to the happy hunting
grounds , u victim of too much confi
dence in Valuntimi'd man Friday ,
Peter Schwenck * . Alexander waa emi
counter IN ONK TIIINO.
The indications nro that there will
bo several candidates for governor ,
but the race ia not alwuya to the
flwift , nor the battle to the strong.
When the legislature waa in session in
1881 , the slate wus made up for the
governorship in thu state houao. It
was agreed between Thumtun , Nanco ,
and the other schemers that D-iwes
i to bo thu coming man , D.IWCS
had played it way down deep on
to deliver Saline county to the man
from the state of lioutrico , but ho'wus
all the time eupporting him with a
monopoly reservation to muko Nance.
On ono memorable evening when
Church Ilowo and Ddwoa and Thurs-
ton had arranged for thu
springing of the Nanco boom
Dawcs was seen sliding through tlu )
corridors of the Commercial , with H
little ribbon in his button hole tliat
was to aignalizo the break from Paddock -
dock , but the boom died a horning.
It was not as big r.s Fred Fyfi's il/
fcpeck , and poor D.iwus wont homo
with a very lario black eyp and a sore
hoad. Von Wyck'a election was the
first bad break of the Diwes" slate ,
but the sorrel top from Saline has by
no means given up , as ho still count )
on Til u re ton and Nanco to reward his
treachery , and I am reliably informed
that he counts on the backing of both
corporations , There is , however ,
A LION IN 111 * I'ATJf.
Saline county ia tired of having only
ono great man to monopolize aH posi
tions of honor and trust , Bhu has
done enough for Dawcs and the indi
cations are that she will present the
name of lion. 0. . Duras for the posi
tion of state treasurer. Mr , Duras
has been treasurer of Silino county
during two terms and ia a man in
every way qualified for * , ho position.
Ia Is n man Of culture , thoroughly
tjrsod in business affairs and decidedly
jopular , Ho has been very reluctant
tbotlt entering the fiolflj but has boon
urged by numerous friends in "various
.actions . of the state and has tlnally
tonsontod to become a candidate. Mr ,
Duras is a Bohemian by birth , but has
> eon in this country 'for many years
md is thoroughly , No
nan in Saline is more popular and it
s almost a foregone _ conclusion that
10 will have the backing of hit county
n apito of all that DAWCS can do with
iia machine.
reminds mo of an incident that occurred >
currod last spring in Washington City
when the president decided to super
scdo John J. Gospcr as secretary of
Arizona. Bo was induced to send in
the name of Hiram M. Van Annan ,
who was recommended by novoral
Pacific coast congrcsamon. Van Ar-
man had lived iu Nebraska aomo years
ngo and was generally known hero as
a bummer and dead boat of the lowest
ordor. His nomination was referred
to the commit tee on territories of
which Senator S.iundors is chairman ,
A protest was filed against this bid
man by several citizens of Nebraska
who made a specific charge that Van
Arman was a disreputable character.
The preaidont wns about to withdraw
Van Annan's name , but our Val.

Special 1)1patch to Tux Una
BOSTON , Mass. , Auguas e8 Tlio
Massachusetts state greenback
convention assembled this morn
ing , and after affecting an organiza
tion adjourned till afternoon.
In the afternoon the convention ,
after a rambling discussion as to the
relative merits of the dillbront gentle
men whoso namca were presented ,
proceeded to ballot with the following
result ; whole number of votes 15J ( ;
necessary for choice , 7-1 ; B , F Butler
67 , Judge Israel W , Andrews 52 , John
Devino 31 , There being no choice
thu name of Devino was withdrawn.
The second ballot taken result
ed ; Wllolo number of rotoa ! . ' ! ( ! ; nco-
easiry for choice , ft'J ; B. V. Butler
had 76 , Judge Andrews 40 , John M.
Devino 111 , Horace B. Sargent 1 ,
Gun , Butler was declared nominated.
After the nomination of Rutlur , the
following were nominated : Lieutenant
uovornor , Guorgo Dutton , Springfield -
field ; secretary of the state , John
Howes , Worcester ; treasurer , George
Foster , Lynn ; attorney general , E.
A. Onow , Athol ; auditor , Augustus F
Merchant , Luverott. Powcc-was giren
the state central committee to till va
cancies that may occur on the state
ticket. Resolutions were passed tlmt
the groenbackers in Alaitioshould sup
port Governor Plulslcd.
Thu resolutions state that while the
old political parties ridiculed green
back principfcs , they had boon adopt-
inc them from time to timo. Among
the principles stated to have been
thus adopted are the policy of destroy
ing the greenback chuiigod to reissuing
ing it ; silver which was demonetized
secretly baa been publicly restored to
its former place. Our declaration
that the only weakness of the green
back was because of the exceptions
placed upon its back by friends or
dupes of the money power been proved
true by the action of Joint Sherman ,
secretary of the treasury , who
upon his own authority re
moved the greatest of these ex
ceptions and brought the greenback
to a premium otar gold and silver
coin. Our position that the govern
ment should retain for itself the op
tion of pa/ing ita bonded debt when
ever it had inonoy to do so , instead of
funding into long time bonds , is
rapidly becoming tlio position of the
intelligent masses of our people.
The resolutious further demand
that a check bo put upon the power of
wealth ; that the national debt bo paid
as rapidly as the revenues allow , and
: refunded to bo made payable at op-
ion ; that the government isiuo all
ho ' money , metallic or paper , and
uako it full legal tender ; abolish the
ranks aa banks of issue ; that no ono
10 allowed to monopolism the
and , air , light nnd water ;
ha. all citizens bo allowed
ho'ballot on equal forms ) equal tnxa-
ion ; against property qUAiilications
or suflrngo ; favoring eight hours as a
lay's labor , and a board of arbitiatlon
o settle disputes between employer
\nd employe ; against convict contract
The resolutions conclude' That , as
Vmoricnn citir.ono , wo deplore the nr-
> itrary imprlaonment nnd illegal do-
ontion of our citizens In "British bas-
ilcs , and deplore our ( continued mis
representation nt the court of St.
James by n minister who s\iictionn :
