RIVERSIDE , Cal. , Aug. 21. One of the
most Important men In this country In hi ;
relation to the present controversy between
Japan and China and who Is likely to prove
an Important factor In a direct way , as he
Is certain to In an Indirect way , In the war
now waging over Corca , Is Colonel J. It ,
Wasson of Scdalla , Mo , formerly a well
known ofllcer of the United States army
The Japanese government has sent for
Colonel Wasson and charged him to repair
at once to the scene of the conflict and
there take command of one division of the
mikado's forces. He luls been asked to dc
this because of his familiarity with the
Japanese and their methods and his known
ability as a commander. The government
olllclals know this from Colonel Wasson's
connection with the Japanese army at one
time as a military Instructor.
Years ago , during President Grant's term ,
the mikado retiuestcd of this government
that a young military ofllcer of marked
ability bo sent to Japan to Introduce Intc
the Japanese army American tactics nml
methods of warfare. It was a desirable
and honorable position and President Grant
selected Colonel Wasson , a classmate at the
West Point Military academy and a close
friend and great favorite. Wasson had
previously been sent upon a similar mission
to Egypt on the request of ( ho khedlve and
spent two jears In the Nile country con
structing the military forces , earning con
siderable renown for his tact and ability In
tlmt line , but It was In his relation with
Japan that ho achieved his greatest fame.
In 1871 ho accompanied General Salgo as
chief of staff , with tl.o rank of colonel , In
the expedition against Formosa. Colonel
Wassail conducted the expedition to a suc
cessful termination. The success of the en
terprise and the satisfactory manner In
which It was carried through so pleased the
mikado that he bestowal on Colonel Wasson
the decoration of the rising sun of the
imperial order of MMJI , a distinction nc
other foreigner every enjoyed.
A warm personal friend of tha colonel

DUDUQUE , Aug. 21. ( Special Telegram to
The Bee. ) The Dubuque Milting company ,
which owns the four beer breweries here ,
bought ground today on which to build a
modern brewery to cost $275,000 and to have
an annual capacity of 160,000 barrels. The
prohibitory and mulct laws have been Ignored
hero utterly and with Impunl y. Still the
liability to prosecution Is constant , and this
enterprise , In contemplation for several years
past , Is undertaken now only because the
company feels assured that Iowa will "take
no backward s'ep" on the liquor question.
Lyman Ellis of Clinton , the republican whose
manufacture bill was defeated In the last
senate , holds that the right to manufacture
liquor Is recorded by the mulct law. He
further promises that the next legislature
will adopt a bill expressly authorizing the
manufacture of liquor. A promise of this Is
seen by the brewers In the declaration of
the present republican platform In fa\or of
encouraging "manufacturing industries" In
Iowa This plank has been Interpreted to
their satisfaction by high au horlty.

so much so that when the column swep
dowir rnrmm and marched over to Dougla :
street and thence to the square fully 3,00i
republicans were In line , while thousand !
of men and women stood along the streets
cheering the boys to the echo.
At 8 o'clock II. H. Roblson , president o
the Republican league and marshal of tin
parade , masked his forces on Fjrnam street
with the right and the left of the columi
resting on Seventeenth and Eighteen ! !

of police clcrred the street and the commani

several republican clubs led the way , followci

MADE A RED AVENUE.
Almost as soon as the bind had struck thi
first note of "Yankee Doodle , " the wholi
length of Farnam street became a sheet o
flame from the red and blue flre that burnet
on almost every corner to a point as far cas
as Tenth street. Behind the band rnarchei
with soldierly tread n detachment of tin
Kouavo corps of the Thurston Rifles , eacl
man armed with a bundle of Roman candles
which were discharged from time to time.
The Thurston Rifles , sKty-flve strong
marched behind the Zouaves , and never wai
there a lime when the men under the com
martd of Captain Scharff looked better
Their white helmets shone under the glan
of the electric lights , and as the boy :
marched and executed their fancy drill ;
there was nothing to Indicate that the ;
cared for the cup that was brought homi
from Lincoln by the Omaha Guards.
In tiio wake of the Rifles came the Ham
llton club , and there were 330 of the mem
bcrs In line , all keeping step to the miisli
that was pounded cut by the Omaha Mill
tary Drum corps of the High school. Be
hind the Harnlltonlans marched the Hlgl
school cadets to the number of 100. Ther
there were ten of the republican clubs o
the city , massing 700 voters , all of vvlron
marched four abreast.
Tlio feature of the parade , however , wai
the Pyth an band of McCook , with Iti
twenty-four pieces , under the leadership o
II. P. Sutton. This Is considered one o
the best bands In the state , and today tin
tie > s will furnish some of the music at tin
convention hall. Last night the member !
wore resplendent In uniforms consisting o
snow white helmets , surmounted by Ion ;
waving red plumes , blue coats and snou
white pints. Behind the McCok bam
iinrclied the Swedish Garfleld Republlcar
club , the Mercer Guards , a club of mountet
men from the Sixth ward and half a dozer
other clubs of the city , as well as the Harrison
risen Republic in club , made Up of resl-
ilcnts of the country precincts.
At every point along the line of marcf
the crowd upon the sidewalk split the hoi
ilr of the August night , but In front cf thi
Mlllard hotel , the headquarters of the re
publicans , the climax was reached. Hen
the vast assemblage cried Itself Irarse as 1
called out the names of MacCoIl and Mercer
The cry was p cled up and carried alorif
the street from Tenth to Seventeenth , golrif
ilown the side streets until It seemed thai
those two names were upon the lips of abou :
every man , woman and child In the city.
The errtlre program was carried out to tin
letter , the column marching to Jeffersor
square , where It disbanded.
AT JEFFERSON SQUARE.
The square was crowded full of Interestei
and enthusiastic people , all anxious to heai
republican doctrine expounded by the bpeak
ers who had been announced.
A temporary speakers' stand had beer
placed in the center of the park , and befori
the head of the parade 'had reached tin
square there was a crush of men and womer
for positions of vantage.
The famous Arion Male Glee club fron
York put the crowd In good humor by sing
Ing "The Battle of ' 92" and "He Wore j
Worried Look , " In which many pleasing ret
orences we-re made to the democrats.
The first speaker was F. W. Collins , prts
Ident of the Slate League of Rcpnbllcar
Clubs. He ald that the laboring man hat
discovered In this memorable year of demo
c-ratlc misrule that ho could not get monsj
unless ho got work , and that he could not ge
work when the democratic politicians wen
engaged In closing up the factories and mill ;
as fust as they could by pernicious laws am
laws made only for the wealthy classes. I
mattered not to the laborer how cheaply hi
could purchase the necessaries of life if hi
could not get the purchasing price. Thi !
was the true condition of affairs now con
fronting the worklngmen of this country , urn
they were beginning to wonder "where thoj
were at. " The democrats had promised tin
worklngmen and common people many thing !
rthcn they once obtained control of the gov- '
eminent , but Ihon promise1) had nevei
ueen kept. The president dlscoverel a greai
man In Hoke Smith and made him a rnembei

In creating calamity and distrust.
PEOPLE WERE FOOLED.
Cleveland also discovered tint senatorial
sugar was far better than common pic. The
people of this country had been brought tc
the painful realization that they put In powei
a party two years ago which had done noth
ing since but kill time and the best Interest !
of the nation. But they overlooked that al
the same time they were killing themselves
and the speaker hoped that they would con
tinue In the latter pastime until their vvorl <
was fully completed. The democrats now Imc
to apologize for their existence as a party ,
but the republicans could point with prld <
to their honorable record for the pist twenty-
live years. Ml Collins closed Ills remark !
with n brief and cutting reference to the man
who now occupies the white house.
lion. J. L McPheely of Mlnden was ther
Introduced. He said that he was proud ol
belonging to the republican parly and thai
neither he nor his party had any apologies
to make to the people for their past actions
The republican party was a party of gooi !
cltUenshlp , and ho thought tlmt Ncbraskt
would lie solidly In line In November. He
could not explain why the democrats luc1
not made good their promises to th ° people
but just now the question was "How an
we going to feed ouuclves and families dur
ing the coming winter ? " The speaker sali
that the state was proud of Omaha , and tlnl
It and other live cities went to make up one
of the best states In tht > union He nd | tlnl
the republicans of Omaha had an advantage
over the republicans of his dUtrlct , because
they had a representative In congress vvhc
looked after their rights , while down nl
Mlnden , It they wanted anything , It had tc
come from some other source , because the )
were unfortunate enough to be represented
or misrepresented rather , by a populism
congressman. But he promised that the re
publicans down In that district would irtilu

In two yc.irs than the democrats had done In
thirty , for the democrats had done nothing
except bring disaster on the country. The
republicans wanted to see great clouds ol
smoke rolling out of : the factory furnaces
and so much work for the manufacturers
that It would be necessary to employ twa
shifts of men to ( III their orders. Ilo urged
all republicans to standjby the ticket which
would be nominated to-day and show the
nation that Nebraska was truly In line as n
republican state again.
MATT SAYS HE WILL HUSTLE.
The glee club sang "We'll All be Happy
Then , " and the master of ceremonies Inter
jected some well tlrneil remarks. Matt
Daughcrty , the republican congressional nom
inee In the Sixth district , was then called
upon for a speech. Matt Is nearly as well
known In Omaha as he Is at his home In
Ogalalla , and-lie was greeted with a warm
burst of applause as he rose He congratu
lated the republicans of Nebraska In select
ing Omaha as their convention place , and
said that In a metropolitan city like thlp
there was room for everybody , and that the
delegates were being taken care of In the
best of shape. Today would see the greatest
gathering of republicans In this city that
had ever gathered at any convention In the
history of the state. The Omaha republicans
were organized as they were never before ,
and the party all over the state was In the
best of lighting trim , so he predicted that
they would win a grand and overwhelming
victory In November. Ho pr-mlscd to be In
the front ranks , and said that although he
had a large territory to canvass , be would
hit the cow trails early arid late and bo In
the ring until the last vote was counted.
Matt gently roasted his democratic brethren
and gave Congresrnan Mercjr a high compli
ment for his efforts In belmlf of the people
of this district. Ho urged all republicans to
get Into line and win the battle of ballots
TIRED OF EXPERIMENTS.
Hen. W. M. Robertson of Norfclk was
the next speaker. He said that unlike his
friend Dzugherty ho came from the dis
trict represented by thatisterllng young re
publican , George Melklcjohn , who had done
much good work for his dlstr'ct In congress.
He thought that Nebraska had had about
enough cf popullstlc and democratic Gov
ernment and now It proposed to get Into the
front of the procession of republican states
and stay there. He related how Senator
Allen and an Omaha paper with a lijphen-
ated title had put up a job down In his
district to secure the nomination of Allen's
law- partner f-r congress on the demo-pop
ulist ticket. He was glad to say that the r
scherno had failed , for he had a telegram
which ; he had just received from homo to
the llTect that the populists had repudiated
the gang and had refused to nominate Rob
inson. He said that the i republican party
had never lowered the flag to any monarchy ,
as had been done In the Hawaiian Islands
by Cleveland's order. He scored the present
administration for Its att.tude toward the
old sddlers and said that It was the duty
of the nation to now protpct , Instead of de
grade , Its eld vvcrn out defenders. He
predicted that the convention would nom
inate a ticket today which It would be the
duty of every republican , law abld.ng citi
zen and laboring man to suppcrt.
There had been frequent calls for Dave
Mercer from the crowd , but at that time
he was busdy engaged elsewhere , ai.d the
glee club wound up the meeting by singing
"The Three Bills. "

natorial nomination and the nomination of
three candidates for railroad commissioners
and three candidates for election to the

He declared that In the corning campaign the
Southern Pacific must for the first time
come from behind their ramparts and fight
in the open. This declaration was loudly
cheered , and Chairman Delvall In his openIng -
Ing remarks provoked . .uproarious applause

anti-railroad sentiment that Patton had ut
tered. After the appointment of a committee

SIZING UP THE SITUATION
Delegates from the State Finding Out Just
Where They Really Sand ! ,
.10 DARK HORSE SEEN IN THE FIGHT
Gubernatorial Contest Viiuurcly Set Ilo.
tvtc.il IMucColl unit .Mnjorc , with tha
UtliU All in Favor of the
Aluu from Lexington ,
The scenes at the Mlllard hotel last night
were remarkable even for the occasion of a
big state convention. Every possible ar
rangement had been made by the manage
ment for the accommodation of the throng :
of delegates and visitors , but the capac ty
of the hotel was taxed as never before by
the demands upon It. All of the delegates
to the convention drifted naturally to the
hotel , nnd with them came their friends ,
and they were followed by crowds of pco-
plo In all walks and conditions of life , who
took full advantage of the opportunity to
see how the preliminary wcrk of n big po
litical contest vvas managed. The rotunda ol
the hotel was packed constantly , wh lo the
sidewalks were blocked by the crowds These
were made up mainly of spectators , but on the
upper floors of the hotel there were no Idlers.
The Jam was quite as great ns in the public
court , but every man In the throng had
something on his mind and was anxious
to get everybody else Into his way of think
ing , even at the expense of concessions that
he had promised himself he would never
make. The hotel corridors resembled the
walls of a cheap chophouse , so liberally were
they placarded with announcements of the
feasts In store for the hungry delegates.
There was no limit on the number or variety
of candidates , and the room that did not
bear the label of some candidate's head
quarters wasi poor indeed. There were
delegates enough to go around , and every
candidate had his following In the log-rolling
contest that was waged with varying fortunes
until the stars were dimmed this morning.
Caucuses were called In rapid succession
by the delegations from various counties
and the results of the deliberations brought
hope or dismay Into the headquarters of the
opposing candidates. Trusted lieutenants of
the candidates for gubernatorial honors were
everywhere looking after the wants and In
terests of the Incoming delegrtes and re
ceiving reports of the progress of the light.
It was the last decisive sk'rmlsh pre
liminary to the content that must be fought
out In the republican state convention which
will be called nt Exposition hall at 10 o'clock
this morning. Nearly all of the delegates
were present and took part In the sizing up
But few of the delegates are jet to arrive
and their position on the leading features
of today's battle Is pretty generally known.
One of the Important developments of the
night's contest vvas the withdrawal of Tom
D. Crane of Douglas from the race for lieu
tenant governor , In Mr. MacColl's Interest.
About 10 o'clock Brad Slaughter and a num
ber of members of the republican btate
central committee called upon the Lincaster
county delegation and Informed them of Mr.
Crane's withdrawal. Mr , Slaughter made
the announcement , which was treated most
discourteously. Mr. Crane was about to
explain his position and the reasons for his
withdrawal , when he was forcibly Informed
that the centlemen from Lincoln did riot
want to hear from him , and he retired from
the room. The action of the Lancaster dele
gation was serlot-sly deplored by members ol
tire delegation ery soon afterwards , and
they sought to make all possible amends for
their very hasty action.
The report was Industriously circulated
through the Hotel at regular Intervals during
the night that there was trouble in the Doug-
lis county delegation , and tint the members
of the delegation would not stand together
In today's contest. These reports were
traced In every Instance to a fragrant group
of ghost dancers who were doing all in their
power to encourage the rumor which they
had started , in the hope of creating a dis
sension that might result favorably for the
candidacy of Majors. A careful poll of the
delegation develops the fact that the in
structions of the convention will be respected
enthusiastically by all of the delegates , with
the possible exception of two or three rail
road strikers who got Into the delegation by
COMES TO A SQUARE ISSUE.
One thing that became apparent during the
preliminary sparring , vvas that the contest
had mrrowed down squarely between MacColl
and Majors , and that there would be no dark
horse feature In the fight before the conven
tion. The effect of this situation wis the
turning of many of the country delegates who
were presumably for Crounso Into the Mac-
Cell ranks. There were several good reasons
why these deleeUIons are rallying to the
MacColl standard. It Is beginning to dawn
upon many of the republicans of the state
that there Is great danger to the party In
Majors' nomination. They admit that If
Majors were chosen It would seriously Jeopardize
ardize the legislative ticket In many dis
tricts , and In Douglas county would bo the
beginning of a factional fight that would
end disastrously to the whole ticket , Then ,
too. the delegates have begun to discover
that many of the candidates for various
ollices on the state ticket are really straw
men put up for trading purposes In the hope
of bolstering up Majors' fortunes.
But the attempt of the Majors forces to
capture all of the places on the ticket Is
the hardest pill offered the delegations to
the convention. The territory within a ra
dius of s.xty miles of Lincoln Is modestly
asking for the governor , lieutenant gov
ernor , attorney general and several lesser
ollices , and other sectl'ns of the state are
beginning to vvcndcr what they are In the
convention for any way.
Supporters of the Ncmaha statesman have
been claiming everything that was not
pledged to MacColl , but their figures have
been revised frequently and radically , as
the delegations which they have claimed
us a unit have been coming In either solidly
for MacColl , or at least divided. The most
careful and conservative estimate ft the
figures nt hand give MacColl a fraction over
a majority of the delegates on the first bal
lot. If lie gets fair treatment at the hands
of the Lancaster , Gage , Richardson nil
other delegations ho will have to exceed COO
volts on the first ballot. It Is generally con
ceded that were It ml for the railroad In-
llticnce behind Majors he would not have
to exceed l&O votes In the convention.

NORFOLK , Neb. , Aug. 21. ( Special Tele
gram to The Bee. ) The populist congres
sional convention In this city today was
largely attended and It wan by all odds the
most Intensely Interesting convention ever
held In the city. The miiln Issue was whether
Judge Robinson , flic , silver democrat , or A
straight populist should be nominated , and
in determining that question a battle royal
was fought , in which the brightest Intellects )
of the now party brushed against cuch other
in skillful wordy combat It was anybody' !
battle up to the time the last county voted ,
and the middle-of-the-road anti-fusion-
Ists breathed a sigh of relief when the sec
retary's count showed tint John M. Devlnes ,
and rrot Judge Robinson , had been nominated.
The convention organized by selecting J.
C. Sprccher of Colfax temporary chairman
over S. C Fall child of Antelope by a vote
of 83 to 50. This was looked upon as n vic
tory tor Hobltibon , but It was not really a
test vote. C. S , Fowler of Dodge was made
temporary sccritaiy without opposition.
After the appointment of the usual commit-
tecs Senator Allen was calljl for and made
n lengthy address , The convention then took
u recess of thirty minutes On reassembling
the committee on credentials made Its report >
port , showing that full delcg-itlons were pres
ent from all counties In the dlstilct. The
temporary oigniilrntlon was then rniido per
manent The committee on platform not
being ready to report , the time was devoted
to speech making , Messrs Moudy , Fairchild -
child , Sprccher , Cochran , Porter , Spackrnan
and others being heard from , and most ot
them dealing very plainly with thu question
of the hour "to fuse or not to fuse. " Tha
anti-fuse people rather had the bcbt of It.
TEXT OF THE PLATFORM.
The arrival of Chairman Abbott with tha
platform cut the speeches short and he pro
ceeded to rcid the numerous planks endorsing
the Omaha platform and enlarging It. Ilia
chief new departures wore resolutions In
favor of making receiverships of bankrupt
railways perpetual and the reversion of thft
roads to the government when the rccolvore
have paid off the debts , favoring the Mlcht-
gin plan of district electors and the election
of United States senators by the people. The
course of Allen , McKelghan and Kern l t
congress was Indorsed.
The platform was adopted entire , ns was
also a resolution to require the candidates
nominated to stand upon It. After selecting
a district central committee the informal
ballot was taken , resulting Robinson ,
CO 1-7 ; Porter , 10'i ; Dcvlne , b5 % ; Sprecher ,
After a little parliamentary tangle the
candidates were asked to corno before tha
convention and got on the platform. PorteB
said he was for Dovlne , and that gentleman
being absent a letter from him was read that
settled the question of hla soundness. Judge
Robinson nndc a speech endorsing populist
principles , but this did not satisfy the dele
gates , and ho was plied with questions that
led to the reading of the entire platform , all
of which received his sanction , and ho re
Even then a delegate from Dl\on county
wanted him to say whether or not ho wai
a populist , but the judge couldn't bo found1.
The ( list formal ballot was then taken amid
Intense excitement and resultedRobinson. .
GS % : Dcvlne , 77 % . The result was received
with wild cheering by the antl-Roblnson
people , but the Robinson delegates were no
happy. Mr. Devlno Is stcrctary of tha
American Bimetallic league and Is In WasU
Ingtorr , but will accept the nomination.
