INTOLN. Sept. 14. (Spwial.) W. n
.sose waa aborted a delegate to the atata
ronventlon this afternoon and 8. W. Bum
ham elected chairman and Howard Schr-gel
secretary or the republican county com
mlte. Mr. Rose waa selected over the
active candidacy of Senator Burkett for
the place. ' The county committee gave
Jung Keese, republican candidate for su
preme Judge, authority to select the dele
rate and he at once appointed Mr. Rose,
who. he aald, had been close to him during
the preliminary campaign and naturally
he dealred to honor him. An active cam
paign was made for the place last night
and this morning and when It became
known that Judge Reese favored the state
chairman, friends of Rose started a cam
paign among the committeemen to allow
the supreme Judge candidate to name the
delegate. Friends of Senator Burkett were
equally as active In behalf of the senator
and It was not known until Just before the
meeting who would win out. Senator Bur
kett assured the members of the committee
. that he suffered no embarrassment at the
action of Judge Reese other than the natu
ral embarrassment of the man whose name
had been mentioned In the papers as a can
didate. He believed Judge Reese had done
exactly right In naming a man with whom
ha was Intimntc. aa the future of the can
didate was at stake. He said he would
have been pleased to have been a dele
gate to the convention, though something
might come up In that convention about
which he would not care to fight.
The chairman and secretary were then
9hosen unanimously and the various candi
dates made speeches.
Resentment against the railroads for
their action In enjoining the State Rail
way commission from making a grain
rata la more pronounced, according to
Ihe reports reaching the state house, than
It was at the time the Burlington and
L'nlon Pacific refused to pay their taxes.
Clark Perkins, secretary to the State
Railway commission, has Just returned
from St. Paul, where he has been for three
lay attending his father, who Is 111. and
i brought the Information that the peo
ple are very much worked up and blame
:h railroads for Jumping into the fed
tral court before they had been Injured
or before there was any Intimation that
they were to be Injured. In some In
stances the people have an erroneous Im
pression of Just what was the status of
ihe railroads and the commission at the
:lme the temporary restraining order waa
treated by Federal Judge T. C. Mungor.
The commission had proposed to put In
i grain rate reducing from 10 to IS per
:ent the present rates on grain generally
. aver the state. Notice of this new
ichedule was mailed to the various rall
1 roads Interested and a date set for a
learlng, It being up to the railroads, in
.heir opinion, to show that the propose!
ate 'was not compensatory. When the
learlng started the railroads eaxh asked
for ninety days' time In which to get In
formation regarding the earnings on
ihlpments of grain and other commodities.
1'hls was denied on the first day of the
( tearing. Senator. Aldrlch . of -Butler

The Peruna Tablet.
Special Telegram.
COLCMBl'B. O., Sept. 18.-The Interest
ing announcement la mads to the drug
trade and to the people generally, that Dr.
Haj-tman and his annuitants, after two
years' experimentation, have succeeded In
devising a Peruna Tablet. This tablet
contains all the curative virtues of the
liquid Peruna. Dr. Hartman will still con
tinue to manufacture liquid Peruna as be
fore. The Peruna Tablet is therefore not
Intended to supplant liquid Peruna, but Is
to be furnished the drug trade so that those
who prefer to take Peruna In tablet form
can have the privilege of doing so. . The
menstruum of the liquid Peruna has been
replaced by hypophosphltes and pepsin.
The Peruna tablets will be of especial
Interest to hundreds of thousands of peo
plo who have used Peruna for many yeara.
The fact that Peruna can now be uaed In
tablet form will be especially gratifying to
people who are subjected to constant ex
posure and catarrhal ailments, snd who
find It difficult If not Impossible to carry
with them the liquid Peruna. A package
of the Peruna tablets carried in the pocket
by people whose business exposes them to
climatic changes will be the means of sav
ing a great many people from catarrhal
troubles which are the bane of American
the railroads before representatives of
the latter secured the restraining order.
Under the law after the commission made
a new schedule of rates, subsequent to
this hearing, the railroads would have had
thirty days in which to put the rate In
effect and they would have had a right
to have enjoined the rate after It had
been made. According to the little testi
mony which was offered the railroads do
not know whether the rates proposed by
the commission would be compensatoiy
or not. The hearing on the application
for the injunction is set for September 23
at Omaha.

Missouri Pacific Appears.
The rallroid commissioners this morning
received a letter from A. W. Sullivan of
St. Ixiuls. general manager of the Missouri
Pacific railroad. In which he Informs the
board the road la working as fast as possi
ble getting the lines In shape and that in
the future the same haste as at present
will be used to comply with the board's
"parka lajare Property,
A doien complaints have been made to
the railroad commissioners from the vicin
ity of Mason City about (Ires resulting from
sparks from the Burlington engines. Farm
ers ssy that the trainmen havo been seen
going on their engines and removing the
spark arresters to get better draft. The
result has been heavy loss, from which
there has been no relief tn court or through
the claim department of the road. The com
mission has written to General Manager
Holdrege about the matter, but he declares
no Burlington trainman would do as re
ported, and he Is certain the engines are
quipped with all modern appliances to
prevent flying sparks.
Secretary Dlmery Back.
Secretary to the governor, Dlmery, has
returned from Central City and Chapman,
where he investigated the causes leading
up to the death of James McGIrr, near
Central City. July 16 last. He Is rather In
clined to believe McGIrr was struck by a
Union Pacific train and met his death in
that way rather than at the hands of a
Tm Jobs Conflict.
A letter has been received by Adjutant
General Charles Bchwars from Private C.
W. Martin of Company O, Nebraska Na
tional Guard, who Is also a clerk In the
Department of the Missouri of the regular
army, in which Martin asks whether It Is
possible for him to be released from his
enlistment In the guard. He has discov
ered a military rule which specifies that
no member of a state guard may, while
holding his enlistment in the guard, be an
attache of the regular army.
A letter from IJaptaln Falconer of
Omaha says the rule exists, but that, In his
opinion. It la not for the benefit of the
service, as the United States thereby sets
a bad example to the big employers of
labor In refusing to let its men Join the
state service. If Private Martin falls to
secure his discharge from the militia he
will lose his position in Omaha.

Otoe Rcpabllcana Confident.
NEBRASKA CITY, Neb.. Sept. 14. (Spe
cial.) One of the most enthusiasts meet
ings of the republican central commit tie
was held here last evening to plan for
the coming campaign, and nearly every
member was present. All the candidates,
including Judge Root, were In attendance.
All seemed confident of the election of the
entire ticket this fall. Representative
Harrison was in the city last evening and
he expressed considerable dissatisfaction
at the manner In which the railroad man
agers are acting, and Intimated that
should Governor Sheldon call a special
session of the legislature that the rail
roads would receive such treatment that
they would not soon forget. He Is of the
opinion that ultra anti-railroad laws wouM
be passed, and perhaps they might go
so far as to forget constitutional limits.
He says that whatever Governor Kheldon
suggests will be carried out by the pres
ent legislature.
Cltlsens Want Fall Investigation.
CENTRAL CITY, Neb., Sept. 14. (Spe
cial.) Governor Sheldon's private secre
tary, Martin Dlmery, arrived in the city
Wednesday and spent several days in Cen
tral City and Chapman collecting evi
dence upon the killing of James McGIrr
last July. Mr. Dlmery, after carefully
weighing all the facts Introduced by par
ties Interested In the case, seemed pretty
thoroughly convinced that . McGIrr met
death by being struck by the tialn. He
6pent considerable time trying to find out
who was responsible for McGIrr being
turned over to the Greeks, Instead of be
ing placed In the town calaboose, but to
what extent he succeeded will not be
known until he reports to the governor.
Now that the Investigation Is started, the
county offlclala hope that it may be sifted
to the bottom, so that all parties con
cerned will be satisfied, and It is still
probab'e that Governor Sheldon may deem
it advisable to order the body exhumod
and an Inquest held.
