Is time something was done to cllmlnalo th
railroad' bossism out of the party nnd I thinl
the convention should take BOIIIO action t
prevent n repetition of the pernicious prox ;
frauds. I think that when delegates an
chosen alternates should bo chosen and h
case the delegate can't go then the nltcrnati
should go and If the alternatecan't go tha
the. delegates present should cast the vote o :
tlio entire delegation and that In no oven
should any proxies bo admitted.
L. K. Oyuver , clerk of the district court-
I don't see any need of this convention , the
trouble Is all with the Individual voter and
the remedy Is In his hands. If the honesi
voters would go to the primaries and see thai
none but good men are sent to the county con
volitions and the samii course should IK > pur
ailed at the county conventions and only trustworthy -
worthy limit sent to the state convention then
the iKilltlcal shyster would not find n place it :
the party mid honest , capable officials would
Horace M. Clark , count v clerk I am glad
to sec something of this kind and I hope every
county will be represented , and 'I trust the
convention will adopt some strong resolutions
in favor of lower freight rates. There Is
something radically wrong when it takes one
half of the farmer's crop to get the other hall
to market. Of course the only thing this con-
r , vtiiitlon can do Is to recommend measures to
The state convention. Another thing that the
Lincoln convention should consider is the
proxy1 question. It is high time that railroad
stool pigeons should bo shut off In their high'
handed way of running the conventions. It
is an outrage that one man should go Into the
.state convention with proxies representing
six times us many votes as Saunders county
has as was done at the last state convention.

IlKR1- ) Your correspondent bus interviewed
a number of prominent republicans and has
found nearly as many views in regard to the
proposed convention of the 20th inst. The
following by Senator T. J. Picket is perhaps
indicative of the general feeling of the more
considerate republicans :
" 1 prefer not to bo interviewed , but will
say this much , however. So far nsSaundcrs
county in concerned , there is scarcely any
use fur the convention. A\"o are in sympathy
with any movement that tends to the better
ing of the condition of the fanner , mechanic
or laborer , and speaking from a republican
standpoint 1 am of the opinion that the alli
ance republicans of Saunders county will llml
no opposition in the republican ranks in the
nomination of n legislative tie-ket that is fully
Id sympathy with the aim of the alllanco.
But ns I said before , the anti-monopoly con
ference , so far as this county is concerned , is
nf but little importance. Anti-monopoly
ideas prevail in this county to a very great

at some pains to get an expression from lead-
I -itf - republicans here , and suggestions as to
the course , in their opinion , Vuo convention
to be hold at Lincoln the 20th inst. should

the strict sense of the term , Mr. James Bel-

much to siy except that ho hoped the conven

T. C. Patterson believes that the conference -
once should adopt resolutions pledging the re
publican party to take an advanced position
< iu anti-monopoly issues , such ns state con
trol of railroad rates , the divorcement of poli
ties from corporate control and also the free
coinage of silver ; and on such a platform In
vite the republicans to send delegates to
their convention and nominate candidates
who are in heartv sympathy therewith. He
believes it the duty of the republican party
as the party of the people to meet the Issues

Rev. Hart wants to see monopolies like the
express , telegraph and sleeping-car com
panies , the greatest robbers in Nebraska ,
regulated and trusts it may bo brought about
by the G. O. P. before this Hurry blows
Postmaster Wood is out of politics , but if
ho were not would ndviso the republican
party to stick to its text , "Tlio government
of the people , by the people , for the people. "
It would be a pity should thu party fall to
meet the present emergency.
J. A. Fort , prohibitionist" wants a general
overhauling of things. Ho thinks it would
bo a good bchcmo for the republicans , prohi
bitionists , anti-monopolists and alliance par
ties to Join forces , work out tlio problem and
set an example for the country at largo.
Judge A. H. Church , while "too busilv engaged -
gaged in tlio trial of cases" in the ' " 1)1 ) ?
tenth" district to pay any special attention to
politics , remarked that ho thought that mo-
mipolle * should bo regulated bv wise laws in
the Interest of the producing classes , and ho
also iK-lieved that the republican partv should
v hcok to and will accomplish every needed rev
form within Its own lines , being the outgrowth -
* growth of the best thought , the real neces
sities and highest desires of the people.

and while I have great cemtidonee in their

more Integrity , more loyalty e > r moro ability

this and every other iss.no which affects the

Bur , ] The following views on the coming
I conference have been expressed by local re
J. li , Brock What wo want to do is to
send men to the county conventions who are
uot governed and controlled by the railroads
mid other monopolies , and endeavor to plueo
a delegation in the state convention that has
the Interest of the people at heart instead of
W. M , Tuomn I am In favor of keeping
tno ullUucu out Of the political ejuesliou alto
gether , except In controlling ami govornln
caucuses. The republican caucus that meet
at Lincoln May 'M should pass such rosoh
( Ions as would oppose monopolies of ever
description. As for the nominations for oftlci
I think that each party should nominate
ticket , and the alllanco should participate r
farther than the respective cane-uses ; othe
wlso the alliance would become n politic !
party , which will In the end kill It. It will I
a short tlmo become corrupt in Itself and <
Itself If It should over nominate n ticket nn

T. S. Pa.vno says ho Is In favor of the cot
fcrcnco passing such resolutions us will I
for the Interests of all laboring parties , an
that the anti-monopoly nnd alliance men writ
tip one platform ! that ho was always a 11
publican until the past six months , but thinl' '
all existing parties are monopolists. Then

The Kentlng In MiidlHou County.
Noitroi.K , Nob. , May 1 1. [ Special to Tn
BKC. ] Norfolk , neither the city proper o
township , has an alllnnco organlzatlor
strange to state , nnd although your corrc :
pondcnt has searched diligently ho has fallc
to find but very few strictly alliance mei
although many state they are In sympath
with tlio conference at Llialiln on the 20th.
Attorney D. A. Holmes thinks that if b
such a conference disaffected republicans an
those on the fence can lie sootheel and brough
back Into the republican camp , no harm ca
be done at least. That the farmers and oil
era who arc doing the most howling nbou
high rates for transportation on the dlfferen
railroads are far rooro to blame themselve
for their asserted down-trodden condi
lion than all the railroads and poll
tie-inns combined , and have only t
turn out to conventions in full force nnd ge
a rustle on themselves , nnd In the language o
Monte Cristo , the worM is theirs. Untl
they rcall/.o this fact and act accordingly the ;
will continue to have grievances against rail
roads and other monopolies , though the con
fereneu at Lincoln continues till Judgmcn
day.Or. . P. Schmenk I am a straight rcpubll
can from away back , as everybody knows
mid am riot favorable to n third party move
ment , especially when detrimental to the in
tcrcsts of the grand old party. I believi
every tub should stand on its own botton
nnd that the republicans should rely upoi
themselves to solve tiio questions of the da ;
In Nebraska. My letter to Governor Thaycr
as published In TUB BKR of the 5th lust.
fully explains how I stand qn the rallroat
question. I observe by the papers that tin
governor has set aside the ISth as a day fo :
the people to have a hearing before tin
board. As the 18th comas on Sunday , this
appointment is rather indefinite. I reeetoc
a letter yesterday , written on cxecutivi
paper with a tyjxjwrltcr , quite pertinent U
say the least , which I pro-snmo is intending
to infer coming from the governor , but then
being no name attached and the lettci
couched in such disrespectful language tha'
I can hardly think that it is from him. Tlilf
epistle states that "tho board is in continua
session until the 2 lib nud names the 15th as
a dav for the people to bo hoard. "
Hon. C. F. Klseloy If the Farmers' alll
ance is an order organized for social purpose ;
and for their elevation ami protection ns wcl
as to accomplish certain reforms or measures
by electing within the ranks of the two great
political parties good , true and honest men te
offices , it can and no doubt will nccomplisl
much good. If on the other hand they shoule :
contemplate a third or fourth party , or if itt
principal object is to di.s | > cnso with the so-
called middle man , in other words , to buj
direct from the mrnufaeturers to save a little
money , then its mission will bo a failure ,
short-hvcel and soon disband disappointed , as
did the Grange about twenty years ago , of
which order I was a member. Yet 1 still
have faith in tlio grand old republican party
to elo all that can bo done for the
relief of the farmer , laborer and
mechanic , that party that gave one and
fill for the asking a frco home , that
party that freed -and enfranchised - OOO.OtK )
slaves , that steered the ship of state success
fully through many storms within ami with-
3Ut. True it has been at times , and it may
be now , loaded elowu with men owneel by
corporations , on the other hand "fanatics"
who loaded it down with submission , but
ivith prohibition thrown overboard , ns it
; ooii will be , mid by the united efforts on the
l > art of the rank und file of republicans at
ilio prlmaricsand in regular convention the
I'ornoration tools if any can be retired.

POSCA , Neb. , May 14. [ Special to Tnn
BKK. ] A. W. Rose , a leading republican ,
"You ask what action should the antl-mo-
lopoly republican conference at LIncolnMay
! 0 , take for the best interests of all concerned.
L'he object is a laudable one and one in which
: he people at large are interested , and while I
lo uot believe in going to extremes I think wo
ire in need of legislation against monopolies ,
rusts and railways , nnd of such a ehariwter
hat they , the combines , may live and do n
irolltablo bnsliiess , that other industries may
lo the same. It would seem trom present In-
lications that the time had como when the
icoplo intended to make themselves known In
natters of legislation , ami it is to be hoped
hat they will do so with moderation. That
u making their selections for these important
fllccs they w ill choose men in whom they
an put their trust , men upon whom they can
ely to do their uttermost , that which is for
ho best interests of the people of the state of
Nebraska , and any action that will tend to
ring about those results is to bo commended.
