purchasing goods and equipments for his

solid Institutions and backed by wealthy
men , who go forth with the view of business
in a practical way. Such Institutions as
these , with the ready cash in hand In ample
quantities , under the management of us
practical u head as Mr. Gillesplo possesses ,
mean business in that Important field , and ,
further , It is quite a compliment to Omaha , to
say the least , thatthis market of supplies for

not found wanting when her merchants were
quoting figures on articles needed for that

Organization of the "G. O. IV In This
State ntul Its Work.
If the republican party in this state lives
until 11 o'clock to-day it will bo just thirty
years , three months and twenty-five days
old. During these years , months and days
it has grown and flourished and has been
the predominant political party of the state.
In persuanco of a previous motion , the re
publicans of Nebraska met in convention in
the city of Oinalin the 18th day of January ,
IMS , for the purpose of organizing in this
state a branch of the party that lias'slnco
grown to bo and has been catlcd the grand
The meeting was called to order at 11
o'clock and the initiatory steps toward the
organization of the body were then and theio
On motion of Dr. G. C. Monell , General
William Larimer , Jr , , of Douglas county ,
was elected chairman of the mcctlni ; , and
James W. Van Nostrnnd was elected secre
tary. On motion of Dr. James H. Seymour ,
a committee of live was appointed by the
chair to report ofllcers for the permanent
organization. That committee , consisted of
the following gentlemen : Dr. James H.
Seymour , P. W. Hitchroclc.Ed F. Schneider
and C. W. Shrceve , of Douglas , county , and
H. S. Munduy , of Sarpy county.
On motion of William Young Brown , Esq. ,
the chair appointed a committee of eight ,
consisting of William Young Brown , James
H. Seymour , John H. Kcllum and Reuben
Sheldon , of Douglas county , L. G. .letters
and E. T. Cressoy , of Cnss county , Dr.
Campbell , of Otoe county , and Reuben Love-
joy , of Sarpy county , to pieparo and report
resolutions. At the conclusion of the ap
pointing of the committees some eloquent
speeches were delivered by the leading politi
cians attending the convention , and a recess
was then taken until 2 o'clock in the nf ter-
" "WUeiV the convention , assembled in
the afternoon the committee on
permanent organisation reported the name of
William Larimer , jr. , of Douglas county , as
president. Thirteen vice presidents were se
lected from so many counties and two secre
In the general resolutions introduced and
ado'pted by the convention they held that the
organization of the party was thrust upon
them by the democrats. They extended the
party lines HO as to admit of all who were
opposed to the then existing administration.
They extended their sympathy to Kansas 'n '
her struggle to escape slavery. They re
solved in favor of the government appropri
ating land for the builduigof the Grand I'acilic
railroad and passed a resolution asking the
senate to pass the homestead bill. The con
vention adjourned to complete their final or
ganization at a meeting to be held in Omaha
on the 27th day of May.
That was the first meeting of the great
party In the state and It was largely attended
and the citi/ens who were present were men
who wore full of patriotism and love for the
fltnto. The resolutions they passed wore full
of the sentiment of the times. Since the or
ganization of the party it has been followed
by victory and thu state has always been
known as one solid for the republican party.
The first convention of the party was held
for the good of the state and people. The
last convention held was for the election of a
delegate to the Chicago national convention
and the pearls were cast before Charley
Greene and the B. & M. railroad. It can bo
said with truth that things have changed
since ' 5S.

An alarm of tire was turned In at 9:3(1 : ( last
evening from box 'M , nt the Chicago , Bur
lington & Qumcy switch tower. The de

able to reach the scene of the lire , which was
nt the vinegar factory , near the Milwaukee
yard ofllco. The flames wore Issuing from
around thu smokestack when dis
covered , and in a short time
the entire structuio was ablaze.
It was impossible to fight the flames with
any degree of success , and it .was but a few
minutes until the roof fell m , and all hope of
saving the building was abandoned , A few
barrels of vinegar wcro rolled outside and
saved , but everything clsu was destroyed.
The building and machinery wcro valued
at fl'JOOJ , and Insured for 110,000. The
owner , Mr , Howe , will rebuild as soon as
the Insurance. Is struighUmad up. The build
ing was a largo two-story frame , about UOxbU
feet. The nearest lire hydrant was one-half
mile away and thus rendered the service of
the flro department completely useless ,

Judge Aylesworth yesterday morning ,
charged with stealing a capo from Nellie Do
Moss lust December. Thoi > rosecutln ( ; wit
ness saw tlio defendant on the street wearing
the capo , and took it away from her. "Sal
vation" Walker appeared us one of tlio witnesses -
nesses for the defendant , and swore most
accommodatingly and vigorously in her be
half. In summing up the evidence , the court
stated that Mr. Walker might ix > sslbly believe -
lievo bis own statements , but they had little
weight with the court. Ho was fully satis
fied in his own mind as to the guilt of tlio
prisoner , but owing to the insufficiency of
evidence on the part of the state ho would
discharge the defendant. The court dis
played a wonderful knowledge of dress
making , talking fluently of darts , gores ,
plaits , biases and scams , to the utter discom
fiture of the defendant's counsel , Mr. Snyder.
.The Do Moas woman walked away with the
cajw , but Jennie ewpro to bavu It , and "Sal
vation" Walker offered to advance 1100 to
1519-1521 Douglas Street
