committee , took carriages nnd were driven
to General Harrison's residence , where they
\ > cre received by Russell Harrison and Cap

and Mrs. Johu C. New , entered the parlor
nnd took a position facing the committee.

Chairman Estco stepped forward and said :
"General Harrison , wo are commissioned by
the national republican convention to
ofllelally notify you of your nomination us
the republican candidate for president of t he
United States. In doing this wo may bo
permitted to remind you that your selection
met the hearty apprt val of the whole con
vention. It left no embittered feeling tor
lukewarm supporters , and Its action voiced
the average and best Judgment of the con
vention. Nor was your nomination duo to
accident or the result of hasty or inconsider
ate deliberation. It Indicated that you pos
sessed In n most eminent degree these pecu
liar qualities wL'lch commended you to the
people's favor. In the hour of our country's
peril you cheerfully accepted an humble
position In the army , went whore your coun
try most fieedcJ you , and by long and faith'
ful service rose to higher commands am !
resumed graver responsibilities. Elected to
the United States senate , your enlightened
and conservative statesmanship commanded
the respect and inspired the confidence of the
American platform adopted by the American
people. The convention marks out with
clearness and precision the creed of the
patty. "
After a moment's silence General Harrison
replied as follows :
"Mr. Chairman and gentlemen of the com-
mittco : The official notice which you have
brought of the nomination conferred upon
me excites emotions of profound thought and
of somewhat conflicting character. That
nftcr lull deliberation and free consultation
the representatives of the republican patty
the United States should hnvo concluded
that the great principles enunciated in the
platform adopted by the convention could bo
in some ine.ihuro safely confided to my c.iro
is nu honor of which I urn deeply
sensible , nnd for which 1 am very
grateful. I do not assume or believe that
this choice Implies that the convention found
in me any prominent Illness or exceptional
fidelity to the principles of the government
to 'Inch wo mo mutually pledged. Mysat-
isfiu with the icstilt would bo altogether
spoiled If that result had been reached by
any unwoi thy met hods or by the disparage
ment of more eminent men who divided with
mo the suffrages of the convention. 1 accept
the nomination with so deep a sense of the
dignity ot tlio olllco and of the gravity of its
duties and responsibility as to altogether exclude -
cludo any feeling of exultation or pnue. The
principles of the government and the prac
tices In the administration upon which the
issues aic now fortunately so clearly made ,
nro so important in their relations to
national and to individual ptospenty , that
wo mav cxDcct an unusual popular
interest In the campaign. Rolling wholly
Uliou the considerate Judgment of our fellow
i citizens mid gracious favors of God wo will
confidently submit our cause to the abitra-
ment of a free ballot.
"Tho day you liavo chosen for this visit
suggests no thoughts that nro nut in harmony
with the occasion. The icpubliean pai ty has
walked in the light of the Declination of In
dependence. It has lifted tlio shaft of pa
triotism on the foundation laid ill
Hunker Hill. It has made the more
P"rfcct union by making all men
free. Washington and Lincoln , Yorktown
and Apponmttox , thu Declaration of Inde
pendence and thu prolmniitlon of emancipa
tion are naturall.s and worthily associated in
our thoughts IT day. As ' eon as
uia.y bo possible. I shell by letter comuwinl-
r.ito to > our chairman a mete formal accept
ance of the nomination Hut it may but bo
proper to say that 1 have already ex.uulned
t/o platform with some care , and that its
declarations are in harmony with my views.
It gives me pleasure , gentlemen , to receive
you in my homo and to thank jou for the cor
dial manner in which you have conveyed
your oflieinl message. "
Long and hearty applatiso re-echoed
through the house as Gen. Harrison con
cluded his address , and , reach
ing forth , ho cordially grasp.-il the
extended hand of Chairman Kstoo , who
then presented him with an olllcinl copy of
his notification. The formalities of the oc

unwritten constitutions. If Judge Cooler's
ceturo was too far reaching and profound

boaid , and now and then during his recita
tions ho pauses to review what has Just been

diminution of interest or attention from be
ginning to end.

The beginning of the address consisted of
a brief summary ol the life and character of
the noted Scotch icforuicr. Although of

Knox was moro powerful than even the
proud queen whom he opposed. Ho was the
greatest statesman of his time , and he lift'-d
his country fiotn feudalism and broke tlio
power of the church , that for IK U
j > cars hud governed Hejtlnnd. Dr. Hurlbut
is an eloquent spiiker , and lias a clear , ring
ing voice tlint is pleas-nit to hear.

A brass band and a lot of boys , each with t
bunch of firecrackers , are not promotivo o

The prayer meeting this mnining was lei
by Dr. Dtiryea , of lioston , who arrived upoi
the grounds yesterday. In speaking of the
gieat events which wo eelcbniU ) to-day , ho

"The Gtcat Hoform. " Her address covered
the progress of woman from the time of St

claimed , believed in the Hoiaan law in re
gard to women , ana not in the higher law o

and values her companionship. Cominj
down to the present , ulio claimed that nil or
ganued efforts of women liavo been for phil

but the audience gained r. clear knowledge
of the struggle between the Normans and
ho Saxons mid of the life nnd character of
ho creat man who was the simper of Eng-
ami's legislation through all the succeeding

of an hour's lecture.
The principal feature of to-day's exercises

Thirty Ice Cream Vlctlino.
DAVID CITV , Neb.-July 4 [ Special to
Tin : UKU. ] There nro now in this town
sonic thirty cases of rather severe sickness
supposed to bo the result of eating ice cream ,
as all who are sick are similarly afllicted and
had partaken of ice cream at the restaurant
of Lymmi Urown on the ! M instant. The
doctors say the symptoms indicate a poison
of some Kind , us they all suffer from cramp
ing of the stomach and bowels , vomiting and
purging , which Is follovvol by prostration tea
a considerable extent. While all seem pretty
sick it is believed that none ol the cases will
prove fatal. What there was about this
cream diffcient from any heretofore made , to
cause this sickness , Is n mystery , as Mr.
Hrown is a man of experience in making It ,
and this is the first to produce such results.

report that much was said of polities and
that republican candidates have received nu
encouragement which will them and grow to
the end of the campaign. They say they
were surprised at the expressions heard
from democrats and ox-confederates in re-
fercnco to tlio Cleveland udmisistratlon. ANew
Now Yorker says that in returning a vote
was taken on two cars occupied by the Irish
Lirigado resulting In 10J for Harrison and ! ! 0
for Cleveland. In n car where the "Louis

Harrison received bo votes and Cleveland

ninny democratic ct-unloH soldiers who said
they will vote for Harrison and Morton on
account of Cleveland's ' vetoes of the pen
sion bills. There were about 100,000 men on
the battle field every day , mid since many of
them were democrats a splendid opportunity
was offered to get the bend of the political
tide. New York republicans are giving no
tice to the democrats that if they are figur
ing on u walk-over In the Empire
stuto and ate calculating that an
cilort will not bo made by the
republicans to carry they are going to bo
woefully mistaken. Mr. Morton told a gen

to make an organi/ation that will bo as
nearly perfect as possible , and that as soon
as Chauncey Dcpcw , who is on his wuv to
Europe , returns In September there will bo

July 4. [ Special to Tun
Bin. : ] A democritie member of the house
was at the executive mansion the other day
talking to Mr. Cleveland about the approach
ing campaign , when the charade * of the
two republican candidates came up. The
president stated he hoped his party would
not mistake itself in estimating the strength
of Harrison and Morton ; that both men had
clean and strong characters , and were im
mensely popular m the states ; besides this ,
they would grow on the people as
the campaign progicbsed , and there was
nothing except general principles
to be brought ngahibl them , and these prmci
ylcs weie laid down m the ulatform. This
member of coiigie-s tolls mo that the pics-
dent is anything hut c.isy of mind on the sub
ject of re-election ; that while ho has an abid
ing f.uth m his platfoim , and believes that a
majority of the people favor uuiieiil revisions
of thu tariff and a strong tendency toward
free trade , ho thinks the icpublicans will
woilt up n wonderful feeling among manu
facturers and laborers.
The president thinks lie is going to have
thu fiiimors with him and the non producers
in the largo citves. Tins is where ho
bunks his success. Ho believes that
thu farmois are in favor of making
ruids upon the manufacturing inter
ests because tbev have uo dnert in
terest in manufactures , while they are lan'o
consumers of ina'iufactnied articles. Ho

tion that he had no dcsno to run around over
the country dmimj the campaign ; but that
he intended to visit u number of sections
upon request of socket ics , and tlint ho would
not only be seen but heard. Mr. Cleveland
intends to make his journey late in Uio cam

WAMIIINOIOV , July 4. [ Special to Tun
Hm : . ] Interest in congress is diverted to-
waul politics. Tlwro is mw no hope for any
general this

done , and the result is upon the calendars of
thetwo houses. The HJiinto ls far ahead of

Only about one-half of thu congressional

fouith of tlu'in will not not noininato until
about the tinio congress ndjouins , which is
now believed to bo about the second week in
August. This causes great anxiety among
many members in the house , and they will
bend every eiTort to get away as soon as pos
sible. If it were not for the pending tariff
bill there would bo absolutely no interest
taken in the proceedings of the lion so or the
senate beyond private bills , and there nro
not many members wqo have measures of
local interest now. Thu discussion on tiio
tariff bill , of course , keeps up interest to a
considerable extent , inasmuch as almost daily
articles In the bill are reached whu h have u
local bearing to almost every member. II

Listening to the music of the bands that
were celebrating the nation's bnthdiiy , John
Kyuii , the victim of Tuesday night's shoot

about HI o'clock yesterday mornlmj , and had
been unconscious nearly tlio cntlie time.
Only ouco did ho appear to recover con
sciousness , and that was when Father
Morlarly leaned over him to give the con
solation of the church. Ho marie no state
ment and did not appear to know by whom
be was shot. Coroner Urcxol was nt once
notified , and after hearing the evidence the
Jury returned a verdict that the deceased
had come to his death from a pistol shot
wound , said shot coming from a pistol in the
hands of F. M. Ortlneer. with malice afore
thought. The latter was at once removed to
thu county jail , and the body was turned
over to Heafy Heafy , undci takers.
Tlio deceased was twenty-lour years
ef ape mid came from Peoria ,
111. , where his parents still reside.
He was always sober and industrious , and
never known to have been engaged Inn quar
rel. During his stay in South Omaha lie had
made friends of all with wlvom ho came in
contact , and they expressed their sympathy
in n practical manner , for in less than two

Francis Meyer Ofllnccr , who is charged
with the crime , has made no statement , and
refuses to say anything about the shouChig.
Ho has nlwaj s been looked upon as a quiet , in
offensive man. Ho is a teamster by occupa
