All the Judicial district nominations have
been made and the only thing left now to
do la to get out the vote and the shouting
home. Tb fuvlonista have two head
quarters with which to do thta and the
republicans have one, but from the fre
quent visits to the popullsta here by Char lea
Scott, the Omaha head of the aggregation,
It la evident that all la not harmony be
tween the two heads. The feeling of dis
trust that was worked up at Grand Island
and at Columbus la still a mighty spectra
and from appeaxancee la Just now working
overtime. The result Is that the democrats
are. afraid of the popullsta and the popu
llsta are afraid of the democrats. At Co
lumbus the democrats spent a whole even
ing before the convention trying to figure
that It would be better to have the popullsta
nominate Judge Sullivan and then for the
democrats to break loose and name Its own
regents In tha hope that the populists would
da the same thing and thus get up such a
rivalry between the two parties that every
one of them would come out and vote to'eee
which waa really the stronger and Judge
Sullivan would profit thereby. The popu
llsta wouldn't stand It. however, and neither
would Mr. Bryan and so the scheme fell
through. It Is believed that this feeling of
distrust, one for the other. Is what occas
ioned the splltup In the headquarters. In
the meantime the republican headquarters
Is a busy place. At this time Chairman
Undsey Is In Chicago attending a meeting
of the National Republioan league, but the
work he aet In motion Is still going on
, Jjust the eame. The poll of the sUts Is about
' completed and the organisation Is being

Tabltbn Home Defease.
Rer. White today filed with Governor
.', Mickey certlflcatea of satisfaction In the
,' nature of affidavits from the young boys.
Inmates of the Tabltha home, who are now
a work on the Wlsner farm, telling that
they are well treated and satisfied with
the management of the home.
Rev. White made a personal Investigation
of the condition of the boya at work on
tha farm and he reported that Inasmuch
as this part of the home had been In op
eration only since last spring, he found
everything aa well aa could be expected.
The farm building in .which the boya live
and the school Is taught, he aald, was
OxZS feet, with six rooms and a pantry be
low and three rooms above. In front of
thla la s blacksmith shop, carpenter ahop
ad a buggy and wood house. The atruc
tura la three smaller buildings put to

a large room used aa a school room and

Sunday morning and aa often aa a travel

White, "IS years of age. srd he told me h"
waa perfectly satisfied. I ate with the
boys snd found the fare as good aa or.e
could expect, snd Just a little better that
day. because the superintendent of the
farm had killed some wild clucks and we
ate them. There are two lakes on the
farm full of good fish and the boys hve
plenty of time to fish, and whenever they
dcrtre It fish Is served. At present two
boys are doing the cooking, but this Just
began three weeks sgo, when the family
whloh was living at the home left. The
superintendent Is now looking fot a good
family and before long the home will be
prealded over by a woman, ss It has been.
I secured affidavits from the boys that
they were well treated and satisfied, and 1
fell sure thev are from a little incident
that occurred while I waa there. I told
the boys that T had come to take them
back to Uncoln. and every one of them
set up a cry that he wanted to star there,
and one of the little fellows cried plteously.
It Is the Intention of the superintendent
to build a new chapel and sod the yard
Just as soon as possible, and If this cry
agalnat the home had not been started it
would probably have been started by this
The delay of the state officers in not
doing something or quitting Is certainly
working a hardship on the home, whether
deserved or not. Governor Mickey an
nounced that h waa going to the home to
make a personal Investigation, but so far
he has not gone. Rev. Zimmerman, a
collector for the home, was In to find out
thla morning what the governor had dis
covered on hia trip. Mr. Zimmerman stated
that It waa Impossible for him to collect
any money for the cause until after the
governor made some kind of a report.
"Everywhere I called." he said, "the people
told me an Investigation was in rrnffr'8a
and that they would not contribute until
something definite was known of the con
dition of the home." The governor, how
ever, waa busy with the Bosrd of Purchase
and Supplies and was not available.
Prompt Payment of Taxes.
The reports received at the office of the
state treasurer from a majority of the
county treasurers of the state are to the
effect that fully 90 per rent of all taxes
were paid by the 1st of June. This is due
partially to tha prosperous condition of
the people and partly to the fact that It
Is cheaper to borrow money and pay the
taxes than It la to pay the penalty. On
real property the taxes delinquent draw
Interest from May 1. and according to the
reports received there will bo little Inter
est paid In. The fact that 90 per cent of
tha taxes have been paid Is a wonderful
showing. Inasmuch as It Is not often that
99 per cent la ever collected In one year.
Testerday the treasurer's office took in
lil.OOO from various sources, the State uni
versity paying In $16,000 from matriculation
and other feea. This Is the highest amount
of money ever paid In by the university at
The Board of Purchase and Supplies waa
at It again today buying supplies for state
Institutions. The matter of the purchase
by Items, aa suggested by Treasurer Mor
tenaen. waa discussed, but whether It will

retary Marsh and Treasurer Mortchsen

ollrltar General f Dointuloa Creates
Considerable Surprise Wheal Ha
iainonrri Hla Oplolan to the
Members of Commlaslon.
LONDON, Oct. 2. Sir Kdward Carbon,
the solicitor general, consumed the morn
ing session of the Alaskan Boundary com
mission today In endeavoring to refute
the arguments of David T. Watson and
Hannls Tsylor of counsel for the I'nlted
States, especially protesting against Mr.
Taylor's contention that the trend of the
const could only apply to the political
coast line and not to the physical coast
He also maintained that the principle of
acquiescence was not applicable to the
present dispute and somewhat surprised
the nudience by declaring that under the
powers of the treaty of IOCS the commis
sioners had no authority to define quea-
tlons submitted to them and that they
could neither lay down the boundary nor
decide what constituted the coast. All the
commissioners could do was to answer
questions submitted to them In the treaty
either negatively or affirmatively. If they
gave certain answers they might make
matters more confused than ever and open
up a new aerlea" of diplomatic tangles.
The solicitor general concluded with sn
eloquent reference to Great Britain's un
willingness to give up any of Ita subjects
Into the control of other nations. He de
clared he thought the republic might think
the commission was slow and that counsel
were wasting time: but no time and no
money would ever be wasted If the long-
landing dispute between the two great
and friendly nations could be solved by
When Jacob M. Dickinson of counsel for
the I'nlted States rose to conclude the
arguments the room waa filled with specta
torr. Ho commenced by belittling the
minute examinations of maps and bicker
ing over details, declaring that the cao
could only be settled by grasping the cen
tral Idea animating the original negotia
tors. He proceeded to take up Attorney
General Flnlay's points, dealing lucidly
with the broad phase of the dlcpute and
enlivening the proceedings with an occa
sional story. He was still speaking when
the commission adjourned until October 5.
Mr. Dickinson does not expect to con

plans. A mobilisation of the Japanese
forces on a large soale Is not contemplated
for a moment, and Korea's consent would
have been obtained for atyr such step.
The minister added that, he still believed
Russia Intended to keep Its promise to

to make any move. The Japanese troops
