under Just such circumstances as that thut
this committee particularly shines.
Will 11 ii v < ! n IJ.iyllght Convention.
After fixing thr > dnto lor the convention , it
took some time to decide whether It would
moot at 10 o'clock or" In the afternoon. It
was urged that the democrats of Nebraska
bad hold enough midnight conventions and
that it was tlmo for ihom lo do n little work
in open daylight , but the argument would
hnvo lost the duv but for the statement of n
member to the effect thut the republicans
hail nominated u corking good ticket as the
result of opening their convention at 10
o'clock , nnd that If this in Itself was so po
tent for n good ticket the democrats certainly
couldn't alTord to ignore it. This argument
wus Incontrovertible , and that Is why ton
democratic convention will moot ut the sumo
hour ns did tbo republican gathering in Liu-
coin last Thursday.
Then the apportionment was ordered to re
main tbo same as for the lust stale conven
tion , being based on the vote cast for
Spr.iguo for secretary of state two years ago.
It will give llio convention V ! . > delegates ,

The members then thought it proper to ex
press Iholr indignation ever tbo action of
prominent papers both hero nnd abroad thut
had in-luted the story of W. U. Shryock's
alleged suicide and defalcation. It wns
stated that It was not certain that It was u
case of suicide , and that if tiicro was n shortage -
ago there wns a bond lo cover it. A com-
tnittco of thrco was nppolntod to dr.ift suit
able resolutions in memory of this deceased
member of the coiii'tillleo , and to censure t.ho
pauers for priming a "villainous Plamloruf
a most excellent man , Inspired by the per
sonal mallcnlty of people in the community
In which ho lived , when thura were no
( . rounds for tha suspicion of suicide..1'
A resolution wus naopted declaring In
favor of placing in nomination a "full * ticket
of clean , able men and w.iglng In their behall
an acllvo , nggroisivo campaign , " and declar
ing further tnai. from Informailon received
from reliable sources In nil parts of llio state
thcro were very good chances of success ut
the election in November.
A lengthy discussion ensued over the prop
osition to Invila Hon. W. J. Hrvnn and Gon-
criil Adlal E. Stovcnson to uddross the con
vention on the night of August 30. Jt wus
slated thut Tobo C.f-tor had arranged to
huvo the vice presidential nomlnco speak at'
the stale fair on "democrat duv , " September
8. and that caused iron bio , because several
of the members were opposed to "dcmo < : rat

ils'supporters ihut thcro would Lo "repub
lican day * and "indopc-ndunt day" nt Iho
fair , and Hint if the democrats didn't ' also
huvo a day the folks wouldn't know they
were "In It. "
Doemi't lllo thn Ideii ,
Mr. Lollow insisted on the appointment of
u committee to draft resolutions disapprov
ing of "democrat day"1 at the stuia fair or of
In any wuy turning the ntalo fair Into u
political gathering. He said ho didn't bo-
llovo in stulo fairs anywny ns they were
managed in Nebraska and ho didn't think
Hint the cninii.lllou should tukoofllclul notice
of the intention of the fair management to
ring In the democratic party ns u sideshow.
Furthermore , ho know tha : It would bo a
Kigiml fulluic If buch n thing wns attempted ,
as the fttato fair couldn't bo turned Into : i
democratic mooting with any succosi and
intimated tUut It nocdod an audience mudo
up entirely of democrats to make u

orullo mooting , llo liMlaccd that it wns not
only out of place but that nothing would bo
gained by it , as It wouldn't help * democracy
out through the state a bit.
