Allen Hoot of Douglas county was elected
temporary chairman of the convcntlqti. S.
D. Hunt of Red Willow county was made

Speeches endorsing Attorney General Leeso
were warmly applauded. A telegram was
was read from Strcetor , the party's ' candid-
nto for president , saying that the failure lo
make railroad connection nt Crete prevented
his presence. J. Dttrrows then reported the
platform from the committee on resolutions.
After rcanirmlng the principles of Iho na
tional platform it declarei
First , that the legislature should fix local
maximum rates no higher than through
rates ; that the policy of dlscilm-
ination against the short haul nnrulyrcs our
cities and impoverishes the farmers. The
true economic policy should bo to make tlio
country through which Iho roads pass ,
wealthy Instead of impoverished and to
build up remote centers of trade.
Second , It favors a revision of the tariff in
the Interest of the producer nnd laborer ; de
clares for free lumber , sugar , wool , woolen
goods , sail , coal , iron and raw products upon
which labor Is expended , and against the re
moval of the tax on spirits.
Third , declares against trusts and organ
isations of capitalists to limit the production
nnd control the supplies of the necessaries of
life : against the employment by corporations
of Iho armed private military force known as
Plnkerton men as uncalled for and a gross
subversion of the constitution.
Fifth , condemns the action of the legisla
ture in changing the length of its session
from foity to sixty days.
Sixth , demands an amendment to the alien
hind law so us to absolutely prohibit nonresident
ident aliens from owning land in Nebraska
and limiting ownership in land to the amount
the owner can uso.
Seventh , demands the investment of the
permanent school fund In registered bonds
nnd improved real estate.
Eighth , charges the Chicago , Durllngton &
Quincy with unfair treatnientof its employes ,
ehaniclizes it as an avowed enemy of organ-
bed labor , as subsidizing thu press and engi
neering dynamite- conspirators , condemns the
company for being unjust , arrogant and ty
rannical and extends sympathy to tlio brother ?
Declares that the right to vote is inherent
In citi/enship irrespective of sex.
Several objections were entered against
poilions of the platform. Each resolution
was acted upon Hcperutcly and all adopted
without mutoiial alteration. A resolution
favoring submission was offered and a sub
Btituto adopted , expressing it to be the sense
of the convention that all constitutional
questions of this character should bo sub
mitted to the people. Contributions were

Iteagan Dcfenda Slavery.
WASHINGTON , D. C. , Sept. 4. )
A most unusual , astounding and shameful
scene was presented in the senate to-day.
Senator Hcagun of Texas , who was Jeft
Davis' secretary of the treasury and post
master general , his bosom friend and coun
seller , made n passionate and earnest de
fense of slavery , the confederacy and seces
sion. Mr. Hengan is the most prominent
leader of the confederacy now living except
Jeff Davis , and is probably better qualified
than any other man to speak on the subject ,
He declared that the south did not rebel for
the propagation of slavery , but for its pres
ervation , that the south fought tc
repel the interference of the north ,
hat the south preferred to die battling
or its rights rather than live and permit the
lorth to intermeddle with them. Ho dc
'larcd ' that George Washington , Hancock ,
relTerson and all the others who fought for
ittr present independence and who framed
he constitution , were responsible for slav
ery , nnd that the way the federal govern-
neiit should have proceeded to abolish slav
ery was by the purchase of the negroes ,
Senator Hcagan lias become greatly oxer
'ised ' over the proddlngs of Senator Dlair ol
few Hampshire , who said that if the south
, vus a victim of slavery , as Senator Heagan
: laimed , It was a willing and anxious victim.
That the south did not simply contend for
ho preservation of slavery ; it demanded n
constitutional right to propagate it through-
nit the north and the territories. Ho in-
lanced tlio effort to do this in Kansas which
c.sultcd in the difficulty of Ibol-.V . Ho re-
iiinded Mr. Hengtw thut the democratic side
f both the senate and house had , in cvcrj
nslanco , brought about sectional debates
n this congress and that such men as ho ,
; { eugan , were continually Insulting the nortli
by their sectional harangues. Heagan sprang
'o bis feet excitedly and said that ho never
nsulted the north , that ho might have In-
lulled the republican party , to which Mr.
Jlair replied that if a party could bo n sec-
ion the republican party was the north as
ho north had organized that party to strike
down the crime of slavery.
Hon. E. H. Hutchins , who has for several
years been the labor statistician of Iowa , has
for several days been attracting considerable
attention on the stump for the republican
tarty in Pennsylvania nud New York. He
: ias pone to Columbus , to attend the reunion ,
nud from there he will proceed to Iowa ami
continue his political speeches. Mr. Hutch
'ns says it is scarcely possible , and whollj
mprobable that the democrats car
carry lovfn this year , although thcj
nro making desperate efforts to lie
so. Tlio democrats , lie says , are supplylnt
the third party prohibitionists with funds
nnd are doing it openly. For n St. Join
meeting recently the democratic chairmai
raised the money not only to pay the bal
rent , but to pay the speaker. Mr. Hutchlni
thinks the railroad light in Iowa on accounl
of the legislature making the railroad com
missioners elective will lese some votes t <
the republicans and the anti-prohibition ra
publicans will make some defections , but tin
majority for Harrison nnd Morton will not bi
less than twenty or twcnty-ilvo thousand. Hi
says the republicans will also gain a eon
gressman In the state , nnd that the pcopli
there have become thoroughly disgusted will
the cowardly policy of Cleveland in his syco
phantic truckling with England.

CHICAGO , Sept. 4. [ Special Telegram to
THE DEI : . ] Andrew Shumun , editor of the
Chicago Evening Journal , who has been in
Now York state for some days past , and who
is n close observer of politics , writes to his
paper as follows : "Tho republican advocacy
of saloon restriction nnd regulation by means
of n strong high liccnso law is apparently
drawing quite ns many temperance nnd law-
nnd-ordcr people from the third party prohi
bition ranks back to the republican party as
the prohibitionists are seducing from it ns
now converts , nnd at the same tlrao It is
manifest everywhere that the efforts of the
frco trade democrats to break down the bar
riers of tariff protection now enjoyed by
the producers nnd the wago-carncrs
are driving many of the men
who have heretofore voted with the demo
crats to the republican standard. These
facts , taken In connection with the unity ol
the republican party and the evident deter
mination of its orators , leaders and campaign
managers to 'push things' with the utmost
vigor nnd up to the very eve of the day ol
tlio election , inspire us with the hope thai
the Empire state will wheel grandly bucli

Mr. Coke called attention to the resolution
dopted at the recent convention in Denver ,

lorthwest coast of the gulf of Mexico. Ho
also presented n memorial on the same sub-
ect from the deep water harbor conimlttoo

Mr , Cullom offered a resolution , which was
idotitcd , calling on the secretary of war for

river and St. Cialr Hats whether Its waters

; luced a bill to declare trusts unlawful and It
, vas referred to the committee on finance.
At'i : ! . " > the scnalo resumed consideration
of tha house bill to prohibit Chinese immigra
tion , and was addrusscd by Mr. Teller in its
support. Ho replied to the argument made
yesterday by Mr , George , throwing the re
sponsibility for the presence of the Chinese
on the republican party. Ho disclaimed such
csponslbility , and defended the course of
Inrrlson in his votes in tlio senate on the
null Chinese legislation , The republican can
didate for the presidency had occupied tlio
same position on the Chinese question as ho
( Teller ) had always occupied , nnd was as
sound us tiny man in the world on the ques
tion of pi oteclion to American labor , whether
against the pauper labor of Europe or the
pauper labor of China. Referring to the
Mercy letter in the campaign of 1SSO us a
forgery of tlio basest kind , ho said that it did
not succeed , and that the attack upon the
present republican candidate would not
succeed , either. If the people had be
lieved that letter bo genuine , Garflcld
would not and ought not to have
carried one state in the union. It was
through forgery in 1SSO and through slander
In lbS7 , that the democrats hoped to obtain
power. Mr. Teller proceeded to compare
the course of two parties on the Chinese
question in California , the only slate where
that question had crystali/cd into public
opinion , and claimed that the republican
party there had always been opposed to
Chinese Immigration , while the democratic
party had not been. Governor Stanford's '
message to the legislature in 1802 had been
the first ofllcial declaration against it.
At the close of Mr. Teller's speech the Chi
nese bill went over , and after nn executive
session the senate adjourned.
WASHINGTON , Sept. 4. In the house to-da.v
Mr. Kelly offered u resoulution directing the
special committee on the investigation ami
construction of the new library building tc
Inquire whether any 'member of the house
: ias , by himself or In combination witli
others , sought by persuasion , intimldntlor
or corrupt or improper moans to influence J ,
L. Smlthmoyer , architect , in the selection ,
acceptance or approval of Inferior or im
proper material to be used in the construntioi
of the building.
It was finally decided that n new commit
tco should bo appointed , it being intimatcc
that the member referred lo by Mr. Kclb
was n member of the present committee.
The morning hour having expired , Mr
Townsbend of Illinois submitted the confer
cnco report on the army appropriation bill
An agreement had been reached on nil tin
amendments except these relating to tlu
establishment of a gun factory andihomanu
facluro of ordnance. A further coufcrenci
was ordered on these amendments.
The bill was passed punishing by n fine o
not more than f 1,000 nor imprisonment foi
moro than thrco years of dealers or pretended
tended dealers in counterfeit money or olhei
fraudulent devices for using the Unite <
Stales mails.
The house then proceeded , as n specln
order to a consideration of the rctaliatloi
bill.Mr. . McCrcary explained and defended tin
bill , and controverted the statement that tin
president had already sufficient authority ti
act under the law of 1887. Ho believed tha
article 2'J of the treaty died when the tlsheric
articles of the treaty of 1871 died. The president
idont had been criticised because ho had no
rushed along a proclamation under the act o
18S7 , but history showed that General Gran
had followed exactly the same line of policy
The power granted to the president in th
pending bill was no stronger than it ought t
bo. It was time that Canadian wrongs shouli
bo resented by the United Stales and sur
piessed by great Britain. The bill should b
passed promptly. The treatment of Amerl
can fishermen by the Canadian nuthoritie
was in violation of that comity , hospltallt ;
and good feeling that the civilization of thi
ago required between neighboring nations
The bill under consideration was no wa :
measure. It was n peace preserver. It wai
a public announcement/ the people of tin
United States nnd Great Uritain that th
government of the United States proposed t
maintain its dignity and protect the rights c
cili/ens. The president would excrciso th
power conllded to him intelligently an
courageously. The president had a prope
appreciation of the dignity and honor of thi
great republic , nnd any power placed in hi
hands would bo used for the protection r
American dignity nnd American rights , i
was by no means certain that ho would bo n
quired to issue the proclamation authorize
by Iho bill. Ho hoped and believed thu
when the bill was enacted into n law th
usual good judgment of the English an
Canadian authorities would bo manifested
and all difllcultles would bo arranged will
out anything which would break up tli
cordial relations which had existed for man
years between Great Drituin nnd the Unite
States. Dut let the result bo what it migh
the president would bo supported by th
people of the United Stales , without rcgar
to party , and there would bo no division o
sectional lines , but the men of the south nn
the men of the north would stand shouldc
to shoulder in u solid phalanx to dofcnd tli
rights and honor of Americans , f Applauses ,
Mr. Hilt of Illinois , commented on th
fact that the president's fisheries mcpsap
had been received with pariisan npplausi
nnd that ouo dcmocratli ; member hud d <
clarod that it was n good campaign doci
ment. Ho was not willing ( to accept tli
proposillon , coming oven from n friend c
the president , that the message was an elc
tloneorlng device. The gcnllcman from Kct
tucky ( McCreary ) connected the message o
the fisheries with what was known t
the frco trade message. It wi
an apt combination. The treatment of on
fishermen and the tendency toward fre
trade hud gone hand In hand since the du
of inauguration. [ Applause. ) Was thei

fisherman ? The whole story was ono <
wrong and outrage unrcdrcsscd and insu
unavenged. Congress had taken the matU
up nnd passed the retaliation act. It stoo
on the statute books still , nnd clghtec
months had passed by and none of thopowei
conferred by it had been exercised. The sy
torn of outrages had been checked in pa
largely by iho Influence of the passage c
the retaliation bill. Then negotiations wci
on and blossomed in the Dnyurd-Chuuibe
lain treaty. In the senate it was subJecU
to a bovcro debate and discussion and wi
found wanting. The opinion of the counti
rejected it Ion * before the vote
the scnnto. The treaty was
bargain. There was more of a bargain the
was written down. Protocols were cent \
the senate , but the dally struggles of mlr
with mind in adjusting all the questions wei
not shown thorv. Sir Cliwlw Tuppsr lo U
Canadian o flic lal journal had said , touching
ho question of free trade :
"Uayord told us and the American plcnipo-
ontlarlcs told us that there was but ono way
f obtaining what wo wish. You want
rrcator freedom of commercial Intercourse.
You want n relaxation In our tnrlft arrange-
nont , etc. You will llnd , " continued
Dnyard , "that the policy of this govern-
nent , the policy of the president , the policy
f the house of representatives , and the pot-
cy of the great democratic party of the
United States , will at once take an onward
nnroh in the direction you propose and ac-
omplish steadily that which you dcslro. "
Sir Charles Tuppcr then added : "Thcso
vcro not empty words. They were
ho , utterances of distinguished states-
neil who pointed to the avowed policy
if the government of the United
States. " Sir Charles Tuppcr then called
attention to the position of Mills , and
iays : "Tho Ink is barely dry on tlio treaty
icforo , as representative of the government
nnd chairman of the committee on ways and
ncans , ho brings forward a measure to do
vhati Why , to make frco the articles which
Canada vends into the United States , and on
vhlch last year f I.MIO.OOO of duty were paid. "
Let mo add , said Mr. llltt , that ho not only
ntroduccd the bill , but ho pressed it through
ho house. Ho kept Daynrd's words to the
ctter. The democrat lo party stood by its
largiun with the Drltlsli plenipotentiary.

Republican applause ] Hilt declared that ur-
Iclo 'J'Jof the treaty had not been abrogated ;
hat the power the president asked for ho al-
cndy possessed.
Mr. Chapman of Michigan favored the
illl. In regard to free trade with Canada ,
10 stated that with the exception of Penn
sylvania all the ulno ntatcs which were on
, lie lakes wanted free trade ami commercial
inion with Canada , and ono of the most able
gentlemen on the other sldo ( Buttcrworth )
vas the high priest ami apostle of that
doctrine. Alluding to the suggestion that
wo years' notice should bo given to Eng-
and of the proposed action us a matter
of diplomatic courtesy , he gave utterance to
ho following epigram , which was received
vith applause mid laughter : "Tho nearer u
nan approaches a diplomat in form , the
icarcr ho is to a fool ; and the nearer ho approaches
preaches ono in substance , the nearer ho is
o a knave. " Ho did not want , ho said , to
bo more polite to England than self-respect
equlrcd. Her foot bad been on every weak
icck. She hud pressed her interests by the
brutality of force , or the meanness of diplo
macy , as circumstances required. Every
where she had been seltish and pitiless. She
was a monster money changer in God's
temple of earth. What lite honor of tlio
country required ho would concede to her ,
uul not nn atom more. This bill was in the
pathway of duty , and he would vote for it
with a stout heart and a clean conscience.
The scnnto then adjourned.
Cleveland Shown No Courtesies to the
NowHpapor Mi-n.
WASIHXOTONSept. . 4. [ Special to Tun
: Jnn. ] .loo Howard , in ono of his recent let-
.crs , printed at several places throughout
.ho country , made a statement to the effect
that President G rover Cleveland had done
nero for the newspaper fraternity than any
of his predecessors in the white house. A
statement so far from the truth is seldom
soutout in connection with momboM ot the
press located in Washington. It is not
within the recollection of the oldest member
of the corps of correspondents that an occu-
> ant of the white house over carried his re
sentment towards the press to such a degree
us Mr. Cleveland. Instead of universal
courtesy there have been constant snubs ,
and frequently open resentment shown to in
dividuals at the executive mansion. So no-
Lorious Is this that there uro fewer newspaper -
paper correspondents who visit the white
house for the purpose of calling on the presi
dent than over before since Newspaper How
became a feature of Washington itculf. The
president never loses an opportunity for say
ing unpleasant things against writers for the
press , and only tlio other day expressed
in forcible language his ill feeling towards
the men. Of course , there nro exceptions ,
Ho has a few intimates to whom ho unbos
ems himself , but there is none of that cor
diality of feeling between the correspondents
nnd the president that there has been in the
past. President Arthur , for instance , had a
knack of winning the friendship of oven hit
political enemies in the corps by his univer
sal courtesy nnd the good fellowship whlcl
ho expressed towards them. And yet tin
newspaper men of Washington could tcl
some very unpleasant things about Grovel
Cleveland if they chose to 'open up the bat
teries. It may bo said to their credit that
they suppress the truth about Mr. Cleve
land's personal habits and past history too
times as often as any ono of them ever does
him a personal injury by misstating facts.
Dut it is not towards the newspaper met
alone ihnt the lack of tack is so evident ii
the surroundings of the white house. That
remarkable lady who presides ovortho house
hold is usually regarded as ono of the mcs
tasteful women In America ; yet on several
occasions she. has demonstrated that sin
has some of the shortcomings in socia
matters of the most uneducated parvenu ir
the swim. Some time ago mention was made
of the fact that some ladies called on Mrs
Cleveland and that their cards were ru
turned to them when that lady sent her ex
cuscs. Nobody over heard of cards havinj
been returned beforoand that fact was taker
as an Indication of n desire on the part o
Mrs. Cleveland to place n personal sligh
upon her callers , although it is probable slu
had no such idea in view , us the ladies wen
entire strangers to her. Dut tlio want o
tact was there , and whether it was duo U
the president , Mrs. Cleveland or to the scr
vants with whom ho has surrounded himself
is u question which inubt bo answered b ;
others. In any event there are uround tin
white house a set of luckics , who arc , to mi
a vulgar expression , "too big for theii
breeches. " Within the past six months
have heard of a dozen cases where ludlc
huvo called upon the president's wife , oftci
by invitation , who have been compelled I
open their own carriage door , and furthu
than this to turn the great bron/o bundle ti
the main door of the white house , itself , am
to hunt around for the servant to whom ti
deliver their cards , while that functional-
sat in n cozy little retreat masticating to
bacco or putllni ; at a cigar which is about thi
only gratuity that thcso gentlemen receive.
On ono occasion Ulchard Mnusliold , th
actor whoso Impersonation of Dr. Jcckyl
and Mr. Hyde won him rounds of applause
was specially iuvited to call upon Mrs. Clove
land. When he reached the white hous
ho was compelled to llnd his own way in , ain
when ho tlnnlly run up against u stray set
vunt his wraps were tnucn from him am
carelessly thrown down in feomo seclude
nook in the East room. Ho eventual )
found Mrs. Cleveland in her rooms , and ai
tcr spending a few minutes in pleasant cor ,
vcrsation with her , arose to take his leave
and was somewhat astonished over the fac
that "tho llrat lady of the laud" was coir
polled to show him the floor herself , bocaus
of the abbcnco of the servants who Ahoul
have been there. Ho found his way throng
the gloom of the main inner corridor to th
East room , and was there compelled t
search for his wraps himself.
Tnls is only a trivial incident , it is truo.bu
It never occurred in the white house before
and it is certain that no such thing woud
have happened in any of the legation build
Ings or other houses where good breeding i
always manifest. The fact Is that Grove
Cleveland , president of tlm United State *
has surrounded himself with a class of ser
vants. ( or j > erhaps In this republic the ,
should bo called employes ) , who are as surl ;
and as churlish an ho Is himself , and the wet
oral public who are oven on the visiting lo
of Mrs. Cleveland are compelled to put u
wtthaarcut many annoyances , because i
splto of nil thut has been said to the coi
trary , there is ouch a rcmarkublo lack of tai
