(From a Stall Correspondent.)
LINCOLN, Aug. 11. (Special.) The
democratic county convention held here
this afternoon waa the hottest affair the
democrat have pulled off for year and
the little assembly room at the Llndoll
was crowded, about 100 delegates being
present. The fight Was whether the state
delegation should be Instructed for George
W. Berge for governor, and wa all
Mr. Berge could do, and all hi friends
could do and all hi opponent could do
to keep the convention from Instructing.
Berge had agreed With the anti-Bergs
fellows not to ask for an Instruction If
the convention would endorse hi stand
on public question and would select a
delegation friendly to him. On the other
side, the argument wa that no fight
should b made and Berge should get
the delegation without instructions.
At the proper time Attorney Doyle in
troduced a resolution commending Berge
and providing the delegation should not
be Instructed. Promptly a friend of the
candidate amended that the delega
tion should be Instructed or Berge. Dr.
Hall and Doyle each told of the agree
ment and asked the convention to stand
by It. The convention wanted to be
hitched and said so In unmistakable
terms. Finally, aa a last resort, the antl
Berge fellow got Berge to come to the
hall and the gubernatorial candidate said
such an agreement had been made and
therefore he did not want the Instruction
providing he could have the delegation.
The convention still Insisted, but finally
agreed to let the delegation go unln
structed. Metrnlfe I Particular.
Richard L. Metcalfe presided and In the
course of his remarks said:
.KThT Wor,d"Herald democrat

choose my candidate. , .vould rather

The convention at time raised some
pretty point but Metcalfe presided with
satisfaction to both factions. The unit

GRAND ISLAND. Neb., Aug. U.-(Speclal

county conventions were held today, the

manding the repeal of the present revenue
law and the enactment, of one placing the

local officers, charging the republican ex
ecutive officers- with dereliction of duty In
not enforcing the maximum freight law of
1892, favoring a nonpartisan board of con
trol for state Institutions and the adoption
of the railroad commission amendment.
Hon. W. H. Thompson, now regarded as
a candidate for governor, waa given the
privilege to select his own delegation In
the democratic convention, but declined the
courtesy, preferring to have the convention
select the same and permit them to go un
lnstructed. Fourteen delegate were then
chosen for the state, congressional and sen
atorial conventions and Mr. Thompson was
given authority to select any alternate
and other that may be necessary or de
sirable. Irflhe populist convention fourteen dele

and fully capable of filling the highest office
of this state.
A motion wa also made, and It waa car
ried, that the delegation be Instructed to
use all honorable means to secure the nom

would fully express the sentiment of the
