1'OWRATS ' TO MEET TODAY
< 'Pnson"- ! Conventions Will-Be '
Afternoon for Douglas County
DEMOCRATS DETERMINED TO DICTATE
Nnnio All the CitiiiltilntvN and
.tiny .MilUc Them All Drmorriiln
I'uiiullNtM l-\pfct to Submit tu
An J thins OITvrtMl Them ,
The fusion parties will again hold county
conventions this afternoon. The work to bo
done Is to nominate candidates for the leg
islature , county attorney , and county com
missioners In two districts. As the demo
crats will .tako Iho bulk of the nomina
tions , the principal Interest will center In
that convention. They will not only name
t their share of the legislative candidates , but
i will attempt to nnmo these they may consent
to glvo lo Iho other parties , nnd In doing
this will also have to meet a formidable elc-
. ment In their own convention which will bo
lighting for a straight democratic ticket.
There Is yet considerable uncertainty ns
lo who the nominees for the legislature wilt
be , although It Is expected the delegates will
begin centering upon someone this morning.
Jinny men whom the party leaders would
have been pleased to place on the ticket
have refused to permit the use of their
names , whllo on the other hand there Is
another class of candidates anxious to get
on the ticket whom the machine Is Just as
unxlous shall stay at home. These mailers
cause IroublcEomo complications to the ma
Hut these nro not the only things which
are troubling the democrats. There will be
a fight among themselves over the controls
eloncrshlpx which Is sure to leave bad feet-
Ing. Tom Hector wants to succeed himself ,
and John Towers Is cngcr to take the place.
Doctor Is not particularly objectionable to
the machine , but the latter wants Powers
nominated to make him a good Indian. Ho
has been fighting the local gang In the past ,
nnd they arc now temporarily on good terms ,
nnd the gang feels that If It can land him
In the commlssloiicrshlp It can keep him In
line. Hut Hector claims to have enough
votes pledged to nominate him , whllo Powers
Is not bursting with confidence as to his
chances for a nomination. In the other dis
trict James I * . Connolly thinks he has
enough votes to overcome Fred Simpson , but
Slmpson'f. . friends nro hopeful of winning
For county attorney George W. Shields
\vlll probably bo nominated by acclamation
Oilier Kentiiren of the Show.
Another matter over which the democrats
will have trouble will bo the chairmanship
of Iho counly committee. Harry C. Miller
has been coveting the place sln'e ho was
virtually tired out of It n few years ago
He feels that an Injustice was done him
then which he desires to have remedied
Ho wants a vindication and the machine
Is opposed to giving It to htm. Its candidate
for the place Is I. J. Dunn and the cantos
for the place promises to be a warm one.
, The popullsl convention gives promise o
being full of features Interesting to the
spectator. Asldo from Iho little scrap which
will come up between John O. Yelser nnd
V. O. Strlckler In n contest from the Ninth
ward , which will be a gem. there will be
a respectable element In the convention
which will oppose submitting to the dom
ination of the democrats. They \ \ \ \ \ demand
that the populists be privileged to name
the nrao proportion of the ticket they had
two years ago and will liiblst on going It
alone unless they carry their point. They
will muke a stubborn fight , but the chances
arc they will bo outvoted when the test'
The silver republicans will be simply the
freak sldo show to the general circus. Thij.
boneless man , thf fat boy and the bearded !
woman will bo on exhibition as usual andf
the spielers will mnko a great noise , but !
the show Itself will not be worth seeing. I
What were called "primaries" were held In
the various wards In the city by the "silver
republicans" last night , but they were as
much of a farce ns those held a month '
ago. They met at private houses and on j j
the curb stones. Forty-flvo delegates were .
chosen by less than that number pf voters
and the credentials were made out with as
much dignity nnd formality ns If the dele
gates represented a real live political party.
n a few cases It was necessary to put names
of parties on the delegation whom It was
cnown would not attend the convention.

The only Interest In the populist primaries
Thursday evening was a little friction In the
Ninth ward , where the old rivalry between
: ho Strlckler and the Thomas-Yelscr fnc-
: lens of the party again came to the front.
The latter had control of the election ma
chinery and declared Its ticket elected nnd
the Strlckler crowd will contest. There Is
no significance to the fight other than a
contest for supremacy In the ward. Fol

It Is reported from Chicago that the
marching i club will come to the exposition
In I full force. It has been making numerous
trips over the country during the past few
years , notably to the Nashville exposition
nnd to New York City during the city cam
paign for Greater New York , on both of
which occasions It created a furore. The
trip west Is said to bo the result of a chal
lenge from the Republican Marching club ,
which also expects to come to Omaha , and
If the rivalry continues Omaha people are
doubtless destined to see something brilliant
In the way of political pageants.
The County Democracy Marching club Is
a tremendous organization and Its numbers
on the Omaha trip will bo limited by the
capacity of the trains to carry them.

There Is no truth In the statement that
Superintendent Berlin of the Agricultural
building Is a candidate for ofllce this fall.
He Is too busy to go Into polities. He says :
"Thoro has been a rumor during the last
few days that I am a candidate for the
ofllce of county commissioner from the
Second district. I want to state that I an !

The First Ward Young Men's Republican
club opened the fall campaign last night
with n well attended meeting In Grnndvlew
hall , Third and Pine streets. The club has
recently elected now officers R. K. Paxton ,
president and C. C. Sunblnd , secretary and
Intends to enter upon active work In the
republican cause. The speakers on the pro
gram were : E. J. Cornish , Dr. W. H.
Hanchctt , A. J. Swanson and P. J. Uoycson.
It was decided to bring out the social side
of the club by giving an Informal dance In
the hall on September 10.
CORA NASH KILLS HERSELF

Cora Nash's little 17-ycnr-old heart beat
warm last night with the full tide of her
young life's blood , but It broke when she
saw her lover In company with another girl
and now she lies cold and still In the tnorguo
at South Omaha , a bullet fired by herself
having pierced her heart.
Cora Nash was a domestic employed at
the home of F. A. Cressey , Twenty-fifth
nnd J streets. South Omaha. Her mother ,
a widow , lives at Creston , Neb. About four
months ago the girl came to South Omaha
to live with her uncle , N'ate Johnson , at'
Twenty-sixth and L streets. She formed the
acquaintance of a young man named L. C.
Jackson , who Is employed around livery
barns. Her uncle forbade her to see Jack
son and prevented Jackson from coming to
the house to see the girl. To get around
this dllllculty the girl sought employment as
j a domestic and found a place at Mr. Crcs-
sey's. Here she worked until last evening.
She had u tiff with her lover during the
day. Just to show her there are others ,
Jackson took another girl as a companion
and promenaded past the Cressey home sev
eral times during the evening. This was
more than Cora Nash could stand.
About 10 o'clock she took a revolver nnd
went out Into the back yard , where she fired
a ball through her heart. She left a letter
which Mr. CrcEsey has and which he refuses i
to allow anyone to see till It has been de-
j Ilvered to the coroner. The girl's mother
has been notified.

About hnlf a dozen similar cases occur

The people who visited the Agricultural
building yesterday were surprised to see so
many of the exhibits containing fresh veg
etables. A few days ago Kansas commenced
to show vegetables grown this year and now
I It appears to bo the correct thing to put In
a collection of the big pumpkins , squashes ,
beets and such things.
Oklahoma has added largely to Its exhibit
within the last few days and Is now show-
I Ing some vegetables that are mammoth In
I proportion. Kansas has done the same
j thing and Missouri has fallen Into line ,
showing some fine specimens of the field and
Douglas county has replenished Its stock
of vegetables during the last two days and
continues to exhibit a collection that Is hard
to beat. The farmers of the county are be
ginning to realize the benefit to bo derived
from a fine exhibit nnd many of them are
gathering the best products and forwarding
them to be put up alongside those things
sent by their neighbors.
At the Young Men's Christian association
building yesterday was held a meeting of
citizens to make necessary arrangements
for Curfew day at the exposition , which will
I be Thursday , September 8 , at 2 p. in. In the
Auditorium. The address of welcome will
be made by Mayor Moorea. Colonel Alex
ander HogelanJ , president of the National
Homo and Employment association , will bn
ono of the speakers. It Is expected that
j other distinguished speakers from abroad
I will be present and that home talent will
j contribute to the Interest of the occasion.
I Steps were taken yesterday to secure first
class vocal and Instrumental music. Gov-
I ( ernors of transmleslsslppl states have been
j Invited. Mayors of cities are requested to
come or send delegates. All charitable and
benevolent associations arc requested to
send at least one delegate to take part In
the discussions of tbo curfew law.

The visit of the members of the National
Editorial association will be marked PV mi

o'clock this forenoon. President Wattles
will extend a welcome to the visitors aid ;
some of the visiting editors will respond.
The exercises will bo followed by a brief
reception , at which the quests of the > ! ay

The hospital on the exposition grounds did 1
a rushing business yesterday and the am
bulance was kept on the go from morning ;
until night. Up to 7 o'clock last night ;
there had been forty-two calls. None of the i
persons taken in were In a serious condition ,
ns most of them weto simply exhausted or
partially overcome by the heat. There was
a man from the AVlld West who had n
broken leg , but It was a fracture of a for- j
nier setting. Ho was sent to ono of the |
down town hospitals. The same course was :
pursued with reference to a man from the
Midway , who was aflllcted with heart fallI'
ure. Ho had been In the emergency hospi
tal half a dozen times.

High winds and clouds of dust blowing
across the grounds yesterday had about the
same effect upon the Indians ns It did upon
I the white people nnd Instead of stirring
! about the camp and participating In games
and dances , they pulled down the flaps of j
their tepees , crept Inside nnd waited for bet
ter weather. During the evening they got
out nnd put up some dances that were highly
enjoyed by the spectators. j
j There were no new arrivals at the Indian ' '
: ; camp yesterday , but n number are expected 1
i today. More ponies are needed , but arrangements - ' '
rangemonts are being made to secure them i
and with the addition of a few more men I
and ponies some Interesting sham battles' '
I are expected to bo slated for the near fu-

Mrs. McDonald of Minneapolis , Minn. , Is
! another butter artist who Is doing some
I modeling In the Dairy building. Her first
work at the exposition was placed In the
cooling rooms on the south side of the build
ing yesterday and elicited much favorable
comment. Sbo docs not do statuary , but
Instead devotes lier tlmo to building up j
I i flowers nnd fancy designs out of butter , j
Yesterday slio modeled some bunches of
I i roses , a cluster of fruit and eoino flowers.
Her work attracts n crowd and Is regarded
as fine ns has ever been seen at any ex- |

Work upon the barns which will house the
animals that will como to the live Block

It was the Intention to locate these barns
on the North tract , beyond the gates on the

used by the buildings required by the fire
men's tournament , It has been found necessary - '
I sary to make a change. The change has re- ! :

SOUTH OMAHA NEWS.
After Mayor Ensor had Issued a call for
a special meeting of the council for 4
o'clock yesterday afternoon It was learned
that Kelly had not returned from Denver
nnd BO the meeting had to be declared off.
as without one more member there would be
no quorum. This special meeting was called
for the purpose of passing n funding bond
ordinance In order to mnko up $47,000 of
outstanding obligations. It Is expected that
all the members of the council will be here
by Tuesday night when the next meeting
Is called for. The obligation under consid
eration becomes due October 1 and ns It will
be necessary to authorize and sell the bonds
before that time It will bu seen that action
of some sort must bo taken shortly. Two-
thirds of the amount due next month Is
on the general Indebtedness of the city ,
while the balance Is for Intersection paving.
The fact that this large sum has been al
lowed to fall duo without any preparation for
Its payment docs not look well for the city ,
but It Is a fact that no elTort has ever been
made to create a fund to take up maturing
bonds. Every year the city has to hustle
around nnd either borrow money at thn
banks or else Issue funding bonds In order
to meet the payment on Its bonds. Th
need of a sinking fund Is becoming more
apparent every day , especially us large sums
will bo due In the next few years and the
banks may not always be accommodating.
Ono city olllccr , who Is a taxpayer , said
yesterday that ho favored the making of
a levy of at least 3 mills each year for a
sinking fund , In order that a portion at
least of the outstanding obligations might
bo taken care of. On the present valuation
5 mills would bring In between $8,000 und
$9,000 n year nnd this would be quite a
help toward paying off the city's debt. If
this plan was followed out for ten yearn
a largo proportion of the debts , Along with
Interest , would bo disposed of.
As time goes by the financial condition of
the city becomes worse. In 1801 there will
become due the sum of $50.000 on Intersec
tion paving bonds. No provision hus been ] |
mndo for meeting this debt and It will most
likely have to bo taken care of by the
Issue of now bonds. Viaduct bonds to the
amount of $78,000 , refunding sewer hands
for JC2.000 and $35,000 In straight funding
bonds will be duo In ten years from now
and the question naturally arises as to how I i
these vast sums are to be paid. With a I
well established sinking fund there would bo
llttlo trouble in taking care of these obli
gations. Ono of the first questions bond
brokers ask when n new Issue Is placed on
the market Is about a sinking /und. Expe
rience has shown that bids for bonds are not
as high under existing circumstances as
when provision Is made from year to year
for the payment of outstanding obligations.

bo readv for the conventions. Whllo 2.
