WASHINGTON, July 18-In view of the
determination of the State department to
renew ttt demand upon the Veneiuelan
government for' ih settlement of Amer
ican claims against Venezuela, It Is a mat
ter of Interest to note the precise statue
of thuse troublesome issues when negotia

the first time the Red Book discloses in
terms the ultimatum laid down by the late
secretary of state. John Hay, in an Instruc

The Venexu n answer, rendered March

WASHINGTON, July 15. tSpeclal Tele
gram.) The published report that Edwa.-d
& Clark of Iowa, the railway conductors'
chief, was slated for one of the new inter
state commerce oommlssionershlpe, ha
started some notable adverse comment. It
Is recalled by the critice that Mr. Clark
was originally and all the time opposed to
railway rate regulation and that he was
Instrumental in stirring up opposition senti
ment umong railway employee; that more
over, he conspicuously exerted himself to
defeat the measure which congreea paased.
It is also recalled that early In the snug
gle Mr. Clark wrote letter to a number
of senators and representatives stating hi'
objections to the proposed law. He used
the argument so frequently employed by
Senator Klklns and others friendly to the
railroads, Insisting that federal regulation
of t lie railroads meant lower freight
charges, with Inevitable reductions in the
eainliiHS of the roads. He argued that
this would necessarily reeult in the cutting
down of wages of railway employes, and
that the proposed legislation would be de
cidedly detrimental to the men In the pay
of the big railroads.
Bearing in mind thla particular conduct
of Mr. Clark, the men who put through the
rate bill say that his selection to be a
member of the new commission Is unfor
tunate. No charge is made reflecting upon
his ability or integrity to fill the position.
He Is well known to poesess exceptional
Information pertinent to the place.
Maay Million for Reclamattoa.
The magnitude to which the reclamation
service haa grown Is somewhat astounding
even In these days of remarkable events.
The reclamation service waa organUed four
year ago and during It existence has In
creased from less than a doxen men to
over 400 engineers, carrying on work
throughout widely scattered localities In
the arid west. Contracts have been let
and work is under way Involving the ex
penditure of $26,000,000, and other contract
are being ' prepared which will necessitate
the expenditure in all of nearly ttO.OOO.OOO.
There are now working for the contractors
about 10,000 men, and the reclamation serv
ice ha working directly for it over 1.000
men, including day laborer and me
chanics. The monthly expenditures aggre
gate about $1,000,000, having gradually in
creased untllthey are now practically at
the maximum. It Is not probable that
there will be further expansion but,, on
the contrary, a considerable consolidation
and reduction of force a the larger' worka
re completed. The rapid growth of the
reclamation service ia Indicated by the an
nual expenditure. For the fiscal year
ending June 30, 1908, there were a little
over $500,000; for 104, $1,600,000; for 1906,
$$.T60,ono and for- the year ending June 38.
1S08, very nearly $8,000,000, the greater part
of this amount being expended during tha
month of May and June, when the ex
penditure reached over $1,000,000 each.

In speaking of the ca today Mr. Hart

The republican county conventions held
last week added seventy-seven delegates to
the number elected, making a total of 2A0.
Of the seventy-seven seventy were chosen
by counties in the Fourth district, which
Norrls Brown had been claiming solid for
him, but he succeeded In getting only three
counties, with thirty-six delegates, 1n-
atructed for him for senator. Of the other
counties Thayer put up a delegation for
J. A. Bothwell for state treasurer, Jeffer
son a delegation for C. F. Steele for gov
ernor and Polk and Cherry countlea left
their delegates without Instructions. The
distribution of the delegates so far se
lected for the republican atate convention
Is shown In the table above, which keeps
Edward Roaewater In the lead for senator
with ninety-eight Instructed vote a
against alxty-eeven for Norrls Brown.
For the coming week republican county
conventions are called for five countler,
which will choose altogether, ninety-six
delegates, as follow:
July 18 Saline county, at Wllber 1
July 16 Saundnr county, at Wahoo 16
July 17 Gage county, at Beatrice 23

Three of theae counties, it will be noted,
are also In the Fourth congressional dis

Fifth district.- Saline county Is expected
to present the candidacy of Fro- " .1. Sadl
lek of Wllber for railway commissioner
and Saunders county that of W. J. Harmon,
also for railway commissioner. Onge county
will probably ask for the nomination for
state treasurer for R. R. Kyd.
Fierce Fight la Lancaster.
The fight In Lancaster county is waging
fiercely. On one side there Is a combination
backing Dr. H. J. Wlnnett for railway com
roianioner In conjunction with Brown for
senator and Sheldon for governor. On the
other side Is the candidacy ef Rev. Luther
P. Ludden for lieutenant governor. The
Brown forces have been trying to make
the Issue, turn upon the senatorial candidacy
of Brown and Rosewater, although Mr.
Roaewater has not been a special factor
In the contest. Brown has been for months
cultivating Lancaater county and at .one
time Insisted that he had a sure thing on
its delegation, but later wa willing to
compromise for half of the delegation, until
now his championship, which Is centered
In the Lincoln Journal, is said to be fight
ing desperately for any representation on
tha delegation that they can get. In fur
therance of their campaign, candidates for
the legislature and county office have been

attend the convention. People 'began going
to the hall early In the evening, and when
the main service began every seat was
filled and more were needed. President

the front and very diplomatically got the
women to remove their hat by requesting
them "to make themselves comfortable,"
a hint which they were not slow to take.
In spite of the Immense crowd the best
of order was maintained throughout the
service and the speakers were able to
make themselve heard In every corner of

plained to the audience: j
I am very glad to see you all, brother

closest attention of the great audience.
Condition Christ Met.
"When Christ came Into the world.' he
aid, "th world waa In sin. The Roman
law ruled the world, but all society waa
plunged Into debauchery. Philosophy had
done It best, but the best it could do was
to give man a finely spun ethical code that
did not bring comfort to hi soul. Religion
had done Its best, but it had no power to
bring poor, blundering, sinful man Into
fellowship with Ood. What was needed?
A savior, a greater savior than any before
with divine power. And. Oh, my brother,
the savior came. The Lord Jesu Christ
came into the world to save sinner.
"If you will tudy the word you will find
two characteristic of Christ plainly por
trayed In theae word: 'Chrtat give much
and Christ demanda much.' They are In
separable. They are connected by bonds
neither angel nor demon can break. Jesus
Christ serves, but He also demands service.
Jesus Christ brings life, but He also de
manda life. And that Ufa I divine power
"I wish to employ Just three Words In the
ministry of Christ which r effective for
us: 'Come unto Me.' You young peop'e
have given your heart to Ood. You have,
answered th command, 'Come unto me.'
I ask you now to stop and think have you
followed the second great command, 'Fol
