Republican County Convention.
Tito agony is over and the republican
Bounty convention 1ms adjourned. The ro-
mlt will be gathered by reading the follow
The delegate * assembled at the city hall
very promptly and at 2:1)0 : were culled to
order by John Uush , clmirmnn of the county
committee , who tmi brief speech sumraer-
Ized the objects of the meeting nml spolto of
the two aspirants for" congressional honors ,
Mr. Council und Mr. Wnbstor , In very fitting
terms , utter which nominations for the ofllco
cf temporary chairman was declared open.
Mr. Hnscall put in nomination W. F.
Bechcl nml the nomination was seconded bi
ll delegate from the Fourth.
Mr , Unit , of the Ninth ward sprang to his
feet and moved as nn amendment that Mr.
Lindsay act as temporary chairman. This
motion was deliberately ignored by Mr.
Hush , who put the question in favor of
llcehol , declared it carried , und had Hechel
in tlio chair in less than three minutes by the
Fred Nye wns then elected secretary and
D. V. Shnlcs assistant secretary.
Mr. Unit desired to bo heard on the ques
tion of the chairmanship , but ho WHS knocked
out by llascall , who declared that the con
vention hnil nn lima to waste on "kickers , "
nd Mr. Hcchel promptly declared Ilascall's
remarks as tiinoly and Mr. Unit out of order.
On motion of Mr. Michael I o the secre
taries were instructed to act as u commlttco
OH credentials , and the chairmen of the va
rious delegations wore requested to turn In
their lists of delegates and alternates , which
nfter belnp concluded evoked the report that
the iMCdcntials delegates present were all
jiroiiorly certified lo.
The question having arisen as to whether
In the absence of both delegate and alternate
the nbsrntco could delegate his power to n
proxy , the convention declared that in till
euuh eases thedologatlon should cast the voto.
The rcpoit of the commltteo on credentials
Vast hen adopted.
ilOn motion of Mr. Qurley the lemporary
Organization was inudo permanent.
Mr. AVhitmoro , of Vnlleyproulnet , offered a
tcsnluUon providing for the selection of
thlrty-sovcn dulegatos for the stnto conven
tion , who will bo Instrucled for O. E. Yost
for the candidacy for the btnto treasiiryshlp ,
the commltteo to consist of two delegates
from each ward In tlio city of Omalm , two
from South Omaha , four from the outf ldo
prnclncls , nnd Iho remainder at largo.
Mr. Hrown ottered ns an nmendmont n resolution
elution providing for the Bclcctlon by dele
gates from each ward and precinct , viz. :
U'wo ' from each ward , two from South
Oiratm , ono from each precinct , and
six ut largo , who shall represent
linuglas county In the ituto conven-
tlon , and a like number to represent
Douglas county at the congressional conven
i In support of his resolution Mr. Brown
urged its adoption in behalf of good gov
ernment mid the principles of republicanism
which wnro based upon fair representation ,
Ills remarks brought Mr. Ka < cnU to lite
foot. Ho characterized Mr. Hrown's logic us
simple , nnd asUe-.l why majorities houla not
rule as absolutely hero as in n presidential
election. If the majority of any state vott
for a presidential cnndMale ho pots the entire
electoral vote of the state. Douglas countj
should go into ttie stuto convention solid. II
Mr. Council hail a majority of the delegates
It wus unfair not to give them to him nnd
drt'dedly ' out of form to allow a jnan on it
whc wculd.not vrorU for Win with all bU might
in the congressional convention. The repub
licans of Douglas county hud declared in
favor of Yost , und his delegation in the state
convention should also bo u united one.
Mr. Uosowuter offered as a substitute the
Hcsolvcd , That the delegations from each
of the nine wards in the city of Omaha and
the delegates from South Omaha shall rec
ommend to this convention thrro persons tenet
net as delegates to thu state convention und
that thu country precincts shall recommend
Boven delegates to the stuto convention. Said
delegates upon being indorsed by a majority
of this convention shall represent Douglas
county und said delegation shall vote as u unit
on the choice lor state treasurer.
Mr. Rosewater then took issue with Mr.
Hnscull upon the question raised by Mr lias-
call and quoted historical facts in support
of his argument loluting to the disposition of
the electoral vote in states , and alluded to
tlm action of the electoral college of Vir
ginia in 1SCO , which cast a divided vote for
Douglas , llrcckonridgo uud Hell. Ho do
t-lured in favor of a delegation to the state
convention , which would not bo in the mar
ket to bo traded , trammelled or gagged , and
did not favor tlio plan of sonilingthirty-sovcn
wooden Indians to rcpicscnt Douglas county.
Mr. Uosovvatcr s.iid ho was in favor of this
county being represented in u manner becom
ing the metropolis of tlio state , and while
conceding that the majority of the conven
tion fuvoretl Mr. Yost the state has other in
terests bevond the selection of u man to 1111
the olllco of state treasurer. The bub-
stituto offered by him provided for re
commendation by wards and precincts uud
the convention could exorcise the veto power
in continuing them.
Hiclmrd Hull spoke briefly in opposition to
the substitute. Ho commended Mr. Huscall's
views as sound und madcitho proposition that
Mr. Council nnd Mr. Yost uir their views on
the subject. A volley of groan from all
parts of the house showed him his error and
ho sat down to rise no more.
Then Jo cph Kodnmn. of the Fifth vard ,
gave Mr. Con neil a dig in Iho ribs by referr
ing to Iho convention of two years ugo when
he , with thirty-seven delegates behind his
back , made it possible for n democrat to bo
elected in the district , which little talk on
Mr. Uedmun's part evoked consldcr.ibln ap
plause on the part of the Webster faction.
Mike Lee took up the cudgel for Hawaii
and sent back ono at Redman concerning
some of the delegates who were sent to the
convention to support Council , nnd Joseph
subsided. Ueo claimed that after the dele
gation had performed its duty to Yost it
would bo free us air to vote for whom they
chose monopoly or anti-monopoly. All ho
wanted was to i > co Yost get there.
1'aul Vnndcrvoorl then announced that ho
was sent there Instructed to vote for Council ,
but if Mr. Kosowater forsook Yost ho would
retire from the ranks of the Council sup
porters , which statement caused bcnsatiou
in tlio roar of the lobby.
Mr. l.lniUay tried to make n speech , but
was sat down upon by a deleguto who culled
him to order.
Whitmorc then reiterated his former stuto-
mcnt thai the county hud decided in invor of
Yost wid Connell , but the Webster faction
again KOt In Its work by groaning vigorously
and Whitmoro wilted.
Fred Nya burbled the string which held
him down und bobbed up to ask Mr. Uoso
wuter n Question or two , which were
promptly answered , after which ho sat down
Mr. Uosewator relorted to Vandervoorl
that his threats had no terror for him. He
drilled that he had pledged himself to Yost
und defied Mr. Yost to contradict him. He
then proposed to withdraw his substitute II
the convention would adopt the following.

Mr. Woolley urged tbo rejection of the substitute
stituto and thu adoption of Mr. Wliitmoro'i
Mr. Yost arose and made a personal np
peal to have the resolution voted down , as il
would interfere with his clmoccs of success
Aftsr a little uion ) cross-tiro between Hose

water , Whltmoro and Woolley , the secre
tary was instructed to read tlio resolution
and subslitule , and then on a viva voce vote
Hie chair declared Ihu substitute lost nnd the
original resolution carried.
Mr. Fred Gray then proposed the follow

teen bo appointed as follows ; Ono

A motion to table the resolution was lost

Then was pandemonium let loose and con
fusion roigneii supreme for a few moments ,
while the chair pounded with his litllemallet
for order in vain.
When liio tumult had subsided the

The primary light in every ward of

in the Third. The Rnyinoiid-MoBrido
Forces were biinorbly organized. Ilcailod
by the Military band the laboring inon
formed in line at Iho corner of T and
Eleventh btrcota , and marched in a
bouy to the polliii } . ' place at the corner

Moore and Whedon ot al wore com-
ilotely unbalanced by the swoop of the

them. They expected to divide it. They
are now wondering how it was done.
The primary olcctiou in this city
dci'lares ngiunbt the dogmatic and dic
tatorial rule of the railroad corpora
tions , and without doubt tlio country
pret'inots will answer to the roll call in
the hamo way at the coming county con
vention. Raymond and McBride will
go into the convention witn the solid
vote of their ward for the senate and
hoiibo. In a day or two it will bo an
easy matter to east the logialntive ticket
of 1 . .minister county. Enough is known
at this hour to warrant the statement
that the railroads have been completely

Next in importance to the state fair
comes the annual meeting of the No-

ciation , which takes place at the state
fair grounds Wednesday , Thursday and
Saturday of next week. The reputation
of the horbcs already entered for thoraces
races glves-tho convention prominence
never before held , warranting the be
lief that the attendance will bo very
largo from all parts of the state and
other states interested in the devel
opment of speed in horse Slosh. Such
support and encouragement there
fore ought to bo given the
meetings as .will insure their
continuance at this placo. Nebraska is
rapidly taking rank as one of the first
trotting horse districts of the country.
The best blood of Kentucky , indeed oi
the world , courses in the veins of Ne
braska horaes , and the interest of the
past which has brought this develop
ment ought not to bo permitted to wane
in any way.
Support and the interest of u largo
attendance on the part of Liuroln citi
zens will go a long way toward keeping
un these annual meetings. At this time
IzO horses have been entered for speed

Senator Turpio Given n Kail Dose By
an Old Soldier.
WASIIIXOTON' , August 11. [ Special to THE
linn. ] Senator'Purple , of Indiana , has been
taken down several Inches by a well-known
soldier In this stuto. If there are any men ,
in the senate who , above all others , pretend
to bo tlio soldiers' friend , and anxious to
sccurti pensions for the boys , they are the
two senators from Jimimm. Hoth have sim
ilar war records , the diameter of which was
given to the publicby senator Ingalls , re
cently. Along about the time Senator In
galls paid his respects to Senator Voorhoes ,
a badly crippled boldlor from Indiana approached
preached Senator Turpio at that time on
the stool of repentance und , after proper
introduction , inquired if the senator would
go with him to the pension offlco uud use his
influence to proeuro a pension for him. The
senator looked Into the soldier's papers , nnd
said that ho would ho delighted to do so ;
that when the papers were all
right the soldion should couio to him , and
tnoi would go together to the commissioner of
pensions , and ho would everything possible
to secure the pensions. Senator Turpio
scorns to have crown bold as time elapsed ut
ter the switching Senator Ingalls cave his
colleague. The other day the crippled soldier ,
having Just recovered from a severe illness
and secured the perfection of his papers ,
again nppro.iched the senator , and renewing
his iicrjualntnnco , reminded him of the visit
jf two or three months prior and requested
linn to go to the pension oflice. The senator
corrugated his brows , and exclaimed In pas
sion : "I will have to have proper Idcntillc.a-
tion of you , sir , before I can intercede for
you In securing a pension. "
It rujtiired but a few minutes for the sol-
dler to drop his crutches , nnd produce proper
identification , after which the senator de
scended from his lofty perch , and said that
ho would bo glad to RO to the pension ofilco
and go al onco. This time the soldier snoke.
Ilo said hut a few words , and they wore to
the effect that If a pension wus never scoured
the services of the senator would not bo in
voiced. The soldier loft Senator Turpio to
his rcllcction , and when ho wisnt homo ad-
reived at your hands a few moments ago will
never bo forgotten by me , and I shall not
trouble you any further in iho umttor of
going to iho depaitmenl with mo. When I
llrsl called on you , about two months ago ,
jou did not say oo word about , or oven hint
that I musl bring some person who could
Identify me as/rm Indlmilan , nor did I Ihink I
nuihl be t.0 iitcltilled , after eighteen years
residence in iho slate , thirteen of which
have been continuous at my present nlaco of
residence. Measured by our loyally and
faithful hcrvlco to the country during the
lalo war , I have a tcn-tuousand times better
right to the tiilo 'Jndlanmn' than
you have , nnd there was no
word or need of mine during
that titno which led loyal people to hint , or
truthfully assert , that 1 was a traitor or n
coiiperhc.id. If this ircatment which I re
ceived at your hands a few moments ago is a
sample of your kind feeling for a union sol
dier , 1 pity these who have occasion to call
upon you for your little inlluciico at the de
partments. Go to iho Iroublo of talcing
some ono before you to Identify mo ns an In.
dliinhm ? No'sir ; I will llrsl see you sent to
that political perdition to which the senate
couimiltoo on privileges and elections ought
to have consigned you ; before I will do so ,
God forbid thul wo shall over have any moro
copperhead Turplca lo llius represent us in
thu senate. You are not worthy of Uio title
of senator. The insolent manner in which
you thrust my card back In my f.ico will bo
remembered until the end of your term , and
the day , date and conversation will bo prop
erly registered ,
